Grid Attractions in Short Span Enough for Most Cities in a Season - __ A JL. __'__ _ _ . . M NINE MD HERE IN NEXIFORINIGHT G. W.-Vandy, C. U.-Western Maryland, Terp-Virginia Offered Saturday. BY H. C. BYRD. INE college foot ball games on local fields this week and next oiler a program of gridiron competition that the great majority of big cities do not get In a whole season. Four are scheduled this coming Saturday afternoon, one a week from Friday night and four more the following Saturday. Ahy one of three games to be played this Saturday afternoon would offer an excellent attraction, an attraction for which many cities would be glad to compete. George Washington has Van- ■ derbilt as Its opponent, Catholic Uni versity plays Western Maryland, and Maryland meets Virginia. Had Van derbilt not been defeated decisively by Louisiana State, which is to be George Washington’s opponent next week, the George Washington-Vanderbilt game would have taken precedence over the other two. As a matter of fact, it may, anyway, but in all likelihood, as far as an exhibition of technical foot ball is concerned, .the Catholic University- I Western Maryland game should be better than either of the two in which George Washington and Maryland are to figure. C. U.-Terror Game Hot. TT'OR attendance, for color and gen U er®l Interest, George Washington i ana Vanderbilt offer much that ! Catholic University and Western Maryland do not, but for real foot ball Catholic University and West ern Maryland probably will offer some thing that the others do not. This also holds good if the C. U.-Western Maryland clash be compared to the one.between Virginia and Maryland. If George Washington beats Van derbilt, its contest next week with Louisiana State will take precedence over everything else scheduled and should rank as one of the two high spots of the local' gridiron season. At the same time George Washington plays Louisiana State. Catholic Uni versity meets Oglethorpe, Maryland entertains Virginia Military Institute and American University faces Ran dolph-Macon. Apparently Louisiana State is going to bring here the most powerful eleven to play on a local gridiron this season. It's 29-to-0 defeat of Vanderbilt, which I is a lot better than that score would seem to Indicate, establishes the Baton Rouge eleven with Alabama, as about the kwo most formidable in the South and should give the Colonials a game a boot as attractive as they-should de sire. Terrors Have Everything. THIS Western Maryland eleven, which plays Catholic University here Saturday, is a good deal stronger than anybody gives it credit for being, even its own supporters. It is well coached, has in its line-up not i only big forwards, but also two or three backs of exceptional ability. There are few teams anywhere that play better foot ball, and if anybody wants to get an eyeful of precise and well-timed play, as weir as an excellent exhibition of charging and blocking, that person 1 : can get it by taking a look at the lads from Westminster. Catholic Univer- I sity win be against the best team it 1 has met this year and if it wins, as good as it is, should consider Itself lucky. J That one-sided defeat of Vanderbilt by Louisiana State has taken some of the edge off George Washington’s game with Vanderbilt, but has added a good deal to the one with Louisiana State next week. There is not much doubt that when the Colonials line up against the boys from Huey Long’s capital they will face one of the two strongest elevens the South has pro duced this year, perhaps the strongest, G. W. Must Improve to Win. EVEN with the Vanderbilt team defeated, though, George Wash ington cannot afford to take the game lightly, unless it plays a good deal better foot ball than it did against Wake Forest. The kind of play George Washington showed against Wake Forest would hardly beat the Com modores. Catholic university s big score against Manhattan must have sur prised Coach Bergman about as much as it did others. Bergman was expect ing the hardest kind of a set-to. but it seems that his young men took the bit, in their teeth and " literally and figuratively ran away with things. The Brooklanders, though, had better not accept that victory as any indication of what may happen when they go against Western Maryland. The latter will be coached to a point of perfection to meet the Brookland attack and also as to where to strike hard to make its own attack effective. Georgetown was not able to beat New York University, but it had the satisfaction of keeping its goal line free of any foreign foot. New York University has potentially a much stronger eleven than it has shown itself to be so far this Fall, and that the Blue and Gray was able to come through with a 0-to-0 count is to Its credit. Georgetown has another hurdle to take this week in meeting Richmond University at Richmond. The Blue and Gray will go to the Virginia capi tal;, to play the best team Richmond • has ever turned out, and If it expects an easy afternoon had better change its mental status immediately. Georgetown probably has not had a • more difficult game than the one with Richmond. Maryland Outdoes Itself. IF MARYLAND never plays another good game of foot ball it has at t ' least one to its credit. Sat «. urdey against Florida the Old Liners were a good foot ball team, in fact a little too good for their own good, as far as getting credit for excellent play goes. Had Maryland beaten Florida In a nip-and-tuck contest by oqc. touchdown or by a field goal, It wfcWb grt •mom credit for its achievement than for what It did, as unusual as this seems to be. Actually’ Maryland outclggsed Florida to such an extent’' that apparently it was beating a mediocre eleven, but In (dontinWd on Page A-12, Column 2.) 1 SporiScope Fighter Joe vs. Diplomat. Cronin May Be Duel at Beantown. _BY FRANCIS E. STAN_ IT ALL seems a little Utopian, this new affiliation of Jo seph Edward Cronin with the Boston Red Sox. Here is a guy just turned 28 and commanding a minimum salary of $30,000 tor the next five years. He will manage the most progressive club in base ball; an organization with more money ready to be spent than Joe can think of ways to spend it; a club determined to spare no expense for an American League pennant. He will play in a ball park made to order for a hitter of his type; a park with a short left field fence, where the drives, that were caught off his bat in Griff Stadium will bounce off a screen for doubles. At the peak of his career, he will, with a blare of trumpets. Invade a city for which an Ir.sh Catholic boy with a lantern jaw and one of the most likable personalities in base ball was intended. Fly in the Ointment? IT SOUNDS too good to be true and, unless we have been rashly misinformed, IS too good to be true. It seems there is a business manager in Boston named Eddie Collins, one of base ball's immortals and one of the shrewdest gents In the game. Mr. Collins knows the diamond from A to Z, everybody admits, but common gossip in base ball circles has it that Eddie is a bit too enthusiastic; a bit too all-embracing as a manager of business, if you get the drift. Marty McManus, also Irish and a steady, if not brilliant infielder, was Boston's first manager to be second guessed so expertly and persistently by Mr. Thomas Yawkey’s able business manager. Never a squawk, however, was forthcoming from Mr. McManus, even when he lost his job after a year of commendably managing one of the worst excuses' of all time for a major league club. Nor has a single disparaging re mark been uttered by Mr. Mc Manus’ able successor, Stanley Raymond Harris, who also lost his job after a single season in which he lifted the Sox from the depths of the second division to fourth place. Joe'* Sensitive—And How! THERE is nothing In black-and white to prove Eddie Collin* had a thing to do with the brief terms of these gents. All of the ac cusations are verbal, but as yet never have we heard a denial from a source likely to be authoritative. It isn’t that Mr. Collins purposely makes life miserable for the Sox pilots! on the contrary, it seems Eddie is so wrapped up in the Bosox that his notorious second-guessing just ‘oozes out. Joe Cronin isn't used to a business manager of the Collins ilk. Believe it or not, he ran the Nationals pretty much to suit himself. I personally know he cannot stand for anything akin to second-guessing because last Summer in the Yankee Stadium dress ing room I asked Joseph, after the Nationals had lost to the New Yorks, why he sent Dave Harris to pinch-hit against a right-hand pitcher when he had the southpaw-swinging CHS Bolton on the bench. Joe blinked a moment and then turned his back without answering. The next day he apologized and ex plained : "S’help me, I can't stand a ques tion like that after we lose a game. If I hadn’t walked away I might have swung. I'm sorry. I know va asked the question in the line of duty, but I’m just that way." Possibly May Click. THAT sounds more like Sweet Wilyam Terry—not Joe Cronin. But it was Joe, the spirited, sen sitive guy who joins a ball club pos sessing the most notorious second guesser in base ball. Paradoxical as it seems, Joe also is known as something of a diplomat. He used diplomacy to get the best out of players like Heinie Manush, Goose Goslin and Buddy Myer; and fighting words to achieve the desired results from others. In our opinion Cronin, the diplomat. Isn’t as strong as Cronin the fighter. And if we guessed aright there may be a flaw in Joe Cronin's Utopia. VANDY’S TEMPER IS G.JOAZARD Angry Commodores to Face Plays Hitherto Unused by Colonials. EORGE WASHINGTON’S task in the Vanderbilt game 1 scheduled next Saturday has been made harder, if any thing. by Vandy’s defeat at the hands of Louisiana State laat Saturday. The pride of Coach Dan McOugln's Commodore eleven, a perennial top flight Southern team, suffered at the claws of the Tiger, and the Nash ville team is going to try to “take it out” on the Colonials. At least that’s the way George Washington views the game from the standpoint of mental attitude. It1 Is a commonly accepted fact that a first-class team, such as Vanderbilt | truly is in spite of that one-aided, licking last Saturday, always will play harder foot ball in the game following a rude jolt. The seriousness with which the Colonials are beginning preparations for Vandy's invasion was seen yester day when Head Coach Jim Pixlee got out one of his "Sunday’’ lectures to impress upon his men their mis takes of the Wake Forest game, to gether with the danger lurking in the forthcoming clash. Colonials Show Determination. WHILE the Buff and Blue men tor quietly but firmly ex pressed his dissatisfaction with certain things that happened In the Wake Forest game (particularly the slip-shod blocking), the players looked and listened with faces that bespoke determination to improve themselves. 1 Colonial sco'uts (three of them watched the two teams G. W. will | face the next two Saturdays) were , scheduled to return from Nashville this morning. Detailed reports on both Vanderbilt and Louisiana State will be ready for this afternoon's practice, although the L. S. U. dope will be sidetracked until next week. Pixlee told his men that Vander bilt's whipping undoubtedly means that the Commodores will prove a ’’mean’’ bunch and that the game In dicated exceptional strength on the part of Louisiana State rather than any particular weakness with Mc Gugln’s men. The Colonial chieftain, incidentally, needs no lessons from any one when it comes to forecasting the mental attitude of a future oppo nent. Last week, for example, he sized up the Wake Forest Deacons perfectly and the latter justified him —though to his discomfort — by threatening until the last whistle to upset his lads. Perhaps the Colonials were flushed with victory from the week previous. Time for G. W. to Uncover. BESIDES snapping into the realisa tion that Vandy will be tough, the G Streeters in the next few days will rehearse some offensive plays as yet unused. So far they have been fortunate enough to keep under cover certain weapons that might pull them through their hardest games, but the time has come to I reach into the bottom of the bag. Vanderbilt scouts in the meantime haven't been able to furnish "Colonel Dan" and his boys any but informa tion about comparatively simple plays. G. W.’s attack must improve 50 per cent-over past performances, it is believed, if the Buff and Blue is to I carry its undefeated record through the Vanderbilt game. Faulty timing and blocking on spinners and reverses have made the offense look bad on numerous occasions, causing many observers to wonder how the same men who flash brilliance on defense can display mediocrity in trying to advance the • ball. Naturally, the Colonials will have to smooth the offense employed to date before they attempt anything new. Plenty of scrimmage, with extra sessions for “skull” practice, likely will be the order of work until Thursday. To say the least (and strangely, it i may seem to some) George Washiog- i ton's hardest game is immediately | ahead with a team that lost by four touchdowns last Saturday. GRID ARBITERS MEET. The District Foot Ball Officials’ Association will meet tonight at 8 o'clock at 1106 Vermont avenue. ■ Pleased About Something Mildred and Joe—the Cronins, you know—were reading in their 6an Francisco home about the Red Sox acquiring from Washington a new manager for a five-year term netting $150,000 in salary.

GRIFF SIGNS ROOK, Takes on Scrivener, Young Alexandria Hurler—Will Delay Pilot Pick. BY JOHN B. KELLER. Applications for the Na tionals* managerial post, left vacant when the Red Sox bought Joe Cronin, continued to pour into the ball club's Georgia avenue offices today, but Clark Grif fith temporarily brushed them aside to sign Archie Scrivener, an 18-year-old pitcher who has gained considerable fame as a performer with the George Washington University team and local sandlot nines. "I'm In no hurry to take on a new manager for the club.” Washington’s president said again today, "but when ever the opportunity presents Itself I'll take on likely playing talent.” Scrivener, whose complete moniker Is John Archibald Scrivener, jr., is a slightly-built left-hander who has been flinging in this territory about four years. He makes his home with his parents at 221 Belmont avenue, Alex andria. and is in hia second year at George Washington. Reminds Griff of Gome*. ARCHIE lwt Spring hurled for the Colonials and this Summer for the Heurich Brewers here and Charlottesville in the Virginia Valley League. President Griffith, who per sonally scouted the youngster, said Archie has amazing speed and a de ceptive curve and given more weight should develop into a high-grade pitcher, "He reminds me a great deal of Lefty Gobez when the latter first came up to the Yankees,” declared Griffith enthusiastically. "Some more weight to give him power and Archie should become a marvel. He's going down to his uncle's pecan farm In Georgia this Winter for an outdoor life and It should build him up,” Archie probably will have to grow some to make the grade. Right now he is 5 feet 9 tall and weighs around 145. Hurls Two No-Hitters. SCRIVENER first sprang Into base ball prominence when pitching for the Alexandria team in the American Legion’s national tourna ment three years ago. Then he car ried his nine to the national final, only to lose to the Springfield, Mass., team in a l-to-0 game. He played with the Celtics In Alex andria and never lost a game on their field. Archie has two no-hit games to his credit. He comes of base ball stock. His father once was an outfielder of note in the old South Atlantic League. No Manager (or Weeks. GRIFFITH said today that he would not be ready to announce a new manager for the Na tionals before another two weeks and quite likely would not make his choice before the first part of December. There are as imny as two dozen applicants for the post and more are expected to file. Several aspiring to succeed Cronin are Washington resi dents, Griffith admitted, although he would give the name of none of these except Bucky Harris. This former manager of the Na tionals Is the only publicly avowed candidate. I ■ 1 ... , PRO FOOT BALL National League. New York, 17; Philadelphia, 0. Brooklyn, 21; Pittsburgh, 3.

FLASHY PASSING TURNS TIDE IN MANY BATTLES Pigskin Rivals Migrating Geese As Smart Little Teams Take to Air to Thwart Heft—New* Ball Rule Revision Effective. BY JIM BERRYMAN. 1 SATURDAY'S sky was darkened, not only by the saturated pres ence of low-hanging clouds, and not only by flocks of honking ; geese iured to warmer climes. Those ominous dark specks spotting the Au- j tumn atmosphere were pigskip projec tiles tossed high, wide and hand'ome by deft flippers of the boys behind the lines. By degrees, the foot ball has worked its way up from the grime and grovel of line play to a high place of soaring communication with feathered folk of the upper strata. The game has seen a radical change from thump and push to pitch and catch. But it s a great break for the little team which formerly battered itself cockeyed against overwhelming beef on the hoof. Now, the smart, well-drilled outfit with a fast-clicking set of deceptive passing plays can buck up against the battering-ram type of team and frequently leave the field of battle victorious instead of on a stretcher. No doubt the newly elongated ball has vastly increased the distance and accuracy of the forward pass, also a rule revision allowing tosses to be taken behind the goal line has consid erably elevated the scoring possibilities of air tactics Aerials Save Columbia. AT ANY rate a brief survey of the past week-end’s far-flung battle front sharply defines the fact that many of the country’s grid ma chines have become air-minded. Up at Baker Field, on the little Is land of Manhattan, Columbia's Rose Bowl Lions were deadlocked in a 7-7 score with Penn State until the final few minutes of play, so the New York ers proceeded to uncork a series of lengthy heaves. Via the air route they were able to advance down the field until close enough for the mighty Barabas to plungs over for the winning touchdown. At Cambridge Harvard and Dart mouth were staging their annual classic, the Big Oreen leading by a shaky margin of a field goal. But the boys from Hanover didn’t feel so good about that measly three points and wanted a touchdown. Banging away at the Crimson line was about as sensible as sending in Pete Barron to knock the heavyweight crown off Max Baer’s cranium. 80 what? A pass I A nice long one! And it was —43 yards—from Bill Clark to Frankie Nairne. The only pass the Dartmouth team pegged during the entire fray, but it turned the trick. Illinois made one grand gesture against Michigan to win 7-6. It was a determined drive to the Wolverine’s goal just before the half. Les Lind bergh and Jack Beynon, the Illini's backfield passing combination, ad vanced the pigskin a much-needed 33 yards on a couple of flips and put it in a scoring position. Long One Wins for Rice. DOWN in the Southwest Confer ence, Rice Institute kept its title slate clean by a last-min ute defeat of Texas. With the Long horns nursing a 9-7 lead, the Rice Owls put on their flying togs and sneaked over a long pass to cop the ball game. In desperation then Texas took to the air in an attempt to salvage what had appeared a sure victory, but the Owls hauled out their anti aircraft artillery and shot down an enemy heave to gallop home with an other swift score, making the final count Rice. 20: Texas, 9. Those wild, cantankerous Mustangs of Southern Methodist pulled one of the season's fast ones! These lads from way down yonder have built up a reputation as the paasingest rascals in cleats, so the poor old Fordham ram had drilled itself into a state of wooly confusion on grabbing out of the air anything from a water bucket to a wart-hog. But the Mustangs forsook their skyward ways and pranced roughshod through the Ford ham line on one ground play after another. Bob Wilson, whose fame as the Southwest's greatest wingman. crossed up the dope completely by showing the shivering fans in the Polo Grounds that ball carrying was another art he had mastered Just as a sideline. Ball Outflirs Eagle. GETTING closer to home, we find a young lad named Johnny Bos sert, who spends his spare time halfbacking for St. Johns in Annap olis, exercising his pitching arm at the expense of American University. Johnny fired four touchdowns to clip the Eagles, 26-7. I Maryland University neatly em ployed a dumfounding aggregation of trick passes, intricate triple laterals behind the line and “shovel heaves” across the scrambling pack, to mire the Florida Gators in the Baltimore mud. 31-0. Down in the Valley of the Shenan doah V. P. I. was enjoying a 7-0 ad vantage over Washington and Lee at the start of the fourth period. So the Generals cast all caution to the Oc tober zephyrs and staged an air raid in the shadow of their own goal posts. Capt. Monk Mattox flipped a brief one to his stalwart end. Charlie Smith, who raced 70 yards for the tying touchdown. When the Gobbler’s full back fumbled the kick-off a W. and L. substitute recovered and the winning points were chalked up on the second goal crossing. And so, as In last Saturday’s grid encounters, the tide of many, a battle was turned by the merest flip of a wrist, countless scores of games in the Mason’s second half probably will be decided by the arc of an inflated pig skin In flight.
