Redskins Inspired by Thousands From Capital Attending Game
PROS NOT CALLOUS TO FANS’ PLAUDITS Squad Impatient to Come to Grips With Giants. Will Avoid Fights. By BILL DISMER. Jr.. Htafl Oorrupnndent ol The 8tar. RYE. N. Y.. Dec. 4.—Inwardly rursing the remaining hours they must wait until they can get at the Giants at 2 o’clock tomorrow afternoon, but genuinely in spired by the knowledge that thou sands of Washingtonians will be in the Polo Grounds stands when they take the field, your thoroughly aroused Redskins war-whooped through their last workout here today. Make no mistake about it., you fans who are planning on coming to New York tomorrow. Your presence is go frig to mean a lot to the Redskins. We asked one of them today what effect, if any, the cheers of a crowd had on a team of former college ath letes after they are professionalized. "All the effect in the world," was his answer. "Gee. when that orow'd cheered after that tying touchdown last Sunday against the Packers. wre’d have played our heads off to win.” Redskins on Edge. yy/E HAVE a hunch the Skins are going to play their heads off to morrow, too. for today the wide open spaces of the Westchester Country Club smacked more of a college campus than the temporary quarters of a professional football team. Dotted with Redskins, who prartically monopolize the place due to the oflf •eason period, the club's air was full of but one thing—the contest for Eastern championship of the National Football league which will be decided by tomorrow's game. Even if they did not have to win In order to gain the title, we’ve a no tion the Skins would be out to beat the Giants. There's a tenseness in the air, revealed by short tempers and •harp tongues, all indicating that the 6kins are on edge. That's a healthy sign, according to Coach Ray Flaherty, who would rather have petty bickerings among his players than a squad full of con tented, self-satisfied and indifferent grtdders. The bickerings are nothing personal, you understand, but merely indicate the fact that every one is chafing at the bit. Will Match the Giants. 'J'HE Giants had better not try any funny stuff, either. Apprised of the situation during the Green Bay game, when Taiwan White, New York's rookie guard, came to blows with Lutlow of the Parkers, the Red 6kins responded thusly: “Let the Giants start a fight if they want to. As for us, we'll keep on playing football. We've a notion the best-played football is going to decide the game.” And the Skins are convinced that they're the better team. All this stuff •—and there's plenty of it in the New York papers—about the Giants hav ing the better players, the better rec ord. and the psyehologieal advantage of playing at home is all bunk, say the Capital's representatives. Sure. Danowski is a great passer. Sure, Leemans is a helluva runner. Sure, Corzine is a great blocker, and Hire, Tilly Manton is liable to decide any game with a field goal. But what about Baugh and Battles and Pinekert and Riley Smith? Any doubt about, their being a passer, runner, blocker or place-kicker? Especially Slingin' Sam. who now looms as the Redskins' outstanding triple-threat. Give the Giants’ line all the credit tn the world. It’s allowed only six touchdowns in 10 games—less than half as many as the Redskins have yielded. But with only two out of aix having played pro football before this year, methings I'd takp (he Red skins forwards who average nearly three years per man in the National League. Experienee In an important game isn't the worst thing in the world to have. Redskins’ Rand on Deck. ^^EW YORKERS may have reason to think the Indians have romp ♦o reclaim Manhattan if they happen to be on Fifth avenue tomorrow or at the Polo Grounds tomorrow after noon. Only this time the "Indians” Will be the Washington Redskin Band. According to Owner George Mar shall. his 55-piece band, which has played at all of the National League games in Washington this year, will arrive in New York tomorrow morn ing. dressed as Indians. Led by Chief Lone West, the Cherokee who has served as barker at the Griffith Sta dium entrance this year, and Tommy Hampton, the Chickasaw, who has done a war-dance on the sidelines before and during games, the band will parade from Pennsylvania Sta tion up Fifth avenue to Columbus Circle and then take a bus to the Polo Grounds. There they will watch their •‘rouslns,” the Redskins, try to take, not Manhattan back from the New Yorkers, but the leadership of the Eastern division back from the Giants. If they do repossess the lead they last on September 26, they’ll win the championship. BRIARLY ENCOURAGED Little Basket Ball Squad Starts With Lopsided Victory.

Redskin-Giant Game Interest Shows Great Advance in Pro Grid Sport Over Brief Span By GRAXTUND RICE. NEW YORK, Dec. 4—Profes sional football is a young man's game now, too. It used to be that the college star, fresh from the campus, would take a dip in professional football to get a few needed dollars and then pass on, leaving the game to the old war horses who had become heavy around the feet and big around the waist after 10 or 12 seasons. That was when Canton and Massillon, Ohio, were the twin capitals of the pro game and the big towns looked upon it with indif ference. The entrance into the big towns meant big money, and big money meant an improvement in the game. In recent years the game has been speeded up. And a speedier game can be carried on only by younger players. Steven Owen, coach of the Giants, was bragging mildly the other day about having the youngest team in the National League, but Ray Flah erty of the Washington Redskins rountered with the information that no team in the league has more fresh men than his—16 of his players hav ing played only one year or less in the pay ranks. This means—or should—that to morrow's game between the Giants and the Redskins for the champion ship of the league’s Eastern division should be fast and speetacular—espe cially with passers like Sammy Baugh and Ed Danowski in there hurling the bail to receivers like Wayne Mill ner, Charley Malone, Hank Soar and Ward Cuff. Baugh Biggest Threat. gAUGH'S passing, of course, repre sents the biggest single threat to the Giants' hopes of romping past the Redskins and moving on against the Chicago Bears for a shot at the 1" ague title. The Giants have a record of 29 interceptions of enemy passes this year, but they didn't catch any that Baugh threw in the September clash between these teams that re sulted in a Redskin victory. It may be that Sammy isn’t pitching the bail any more accurately than he did then its difficult to see how he could but the latest dope on him is that he hasn’t fallen off even slightly. The indications are that, with good weather—because the profesisonal fan isn't as hardy as the collegiate type and will not sit for two hours in the rain—there will be a crowd of 50,000 ok1 so at the Polo Grounds tomorrow. This offers further proof of the rapid growth of the professional game which, less than 20 years ago, was a haphazard business outside two or three well-established spots like the Ohio mill towns. In those days the best college players who could be drafted for a season or two of play while they scouted around for coach ing jobs or something of the sort played in ramshackle ball parks be fore small crowds and drewr very lit tle for their efforts except bumps and bruises. Hardships in Old Game. of Lou Little’s classic stories— for Lou put in a season or so in the profeslsonal game, playing for two or three teams at the same time— reflects the hardships of that era. Lou was paid $10 for playing a game in a Pennsylvania coal town one Sat urday and suffered a painful knee in jury, then stayed up all night on a train that was taking him to Buffalo for a Sunday game, putting hot and cold compresses on the • knee. He didn't tell the coach of the Buffalo team about his Injury, fearing that. If he did, he wouldn’t be allowed to play—and if he didn't play, he wouldn't be paid—and that was a $25 game. Compare that with the conditions today, where the players are as well trained and w'ell looked aft>r as the major league ball players; play under the same conditions and before crowds just as big, and draw as much money as the big-time ball players in return for their skill. That last item—the kind of money the professional players make today— La the most important item in the de velopment of the game, of course. Formerly, the professional football player had a week end job only, and it didn't pay him enough to keep him, so that he had to work at some thing else during the week. Thus, he had scant time in which to prac tice and was lucky if he could get in a drill of an hour or so between games. Now, the professional teams practice as long and as rigorously as the college teams and in the same some what eleborate circumstances.

HICAGO, Dec. 4.—Removal of two restrictions on football in the Western Conference were up for consideration today by the Faculty Committee, after their presentation had been made by the director of athletics. They were: Lifting the ban on the modified training table which would enable the directors to provide at least one whole some meal for football players four times a week. The directors pointed out that the school already supplied a meal on Friday night and on Satur day when the team played away from home, and that a player was in as much need of proper diet supervision after practice as he was on the day before and the day of the contest. Removal of the ban against past season games. The coaches want legislation that will enable the Big Ten champion to become a potential foe in the annual Rose Bowl game—a project which has grown popular in both the Big Ten and Pacific confer ences. Not since 1921 has a confer ence team appeared in the Rase Bowl. Training Table Move Dubious. gUCCESS of the training table move appeared doubtful, although some of the directors, after mustering new strength within their own organiza tion, felt certain that the faculty rep resentative would act favorably. The football coaches, after consider able discussion of defense and the professional forward pass rule, which allows throwing the ball from any point behind the point of scrimmage, went on record opposing any change of rules. However, they recommended that games be timed officially by an electric clock placed on the scoreboard and operated from the sideline, and also -that the officials wear shirts or Jerseya striped in black and white to distinguish them from players. A question of offlciatine also ramp iin for airing, with the coache* voting to ask John L. Griffith, commissioner of athletics, to supply them with a com plete list of Big Ten officials, detail ing their age and period of service and petitioning the commissioner to em ploy more new men in Big Ten games. Boost High School Officials. Several of the coaches deplored the difficulties encountered by promising high school officials who wanted to break Into the conference officiating circle. They held that high school games were the best training grounds for officials. The Big Ten tennis coaches formed an asaoctatlon in an effort to stimu late interest in this sport. In wrestling there also was a new deal. Bouts henceforth will be decided on points as follows: niree points for a near fall, two points for a go-behind, either from underneath or on foot, and one point for an escape from fall.

Reporter Discovers Redskin Exercises Not Conducive to Agility on Writing Machine By BILL DISMER. Jr.. 8t»n Correspondent ol The Star. RYE, N. Y., Dec. 4.—Yours truly asked for—and received—the works today, from Assistant Coach and Trainer Roy Baker of the Redskins. It was that second mentioned title that sent me scurrying to Mr. Baker for relief for a flounder ing, though not entirely helpless, mid section, often called the tummy. Sensing a grand opportunity in the assets of Westchester Country Club's thoroughly-equipped “health center,” plus plenty of room outdoors to run "it” off, I asked the man who keeps the Skins in shape what it would take to START putting me in shape. “Come ont in the morning and I'll show you,” he said. We did, and while we're still alive to tell the tale, here was Dr. Baker's prescription. He Gets the Works. I J^UT >'ou think it can be told in a few words, let me warn you that ’twas only an hour after breakfast when we started, and a half-hour be fore lunch when we finished. I never knew until then that my I. Q. in | physical education would have approx imated minus one. It started simply enough. Roy picked up a football and said, "Let's throw' this around a bit to warm up.” I still think I showed up my teacher here, for no matter how hard he tried, his aim never was within my reach. He said afterw'ard that he was trying to make me run, but it sounded like an alibi. That lasted 15 minutes. Then he picked up that round ton of dead weight down as the medicine ball. And I never knew before there could be so many ways of getting the blamed thing away from you. “Bake.” though, seemed to think that I was an old hand with the ball, for right away he told me to use just one hand. I still think two hands would have been better, but he said something about working first one shoulder and then the other, so I ha dto alternate. The only time he’d let me use both hands I’d have to bend way over back wards and toas over my head. It's a nice trick if you can do it. I did—in the 15th minute. Then came the exercises. (No, dear reader, the aforementioned were just “warming up"j. Well, you know what exercises look like, but if yo ucan pic ture a 6-foot 4-inch desk-worm re porter flat on his back and trying to make his toes swing around to touch his ears, you get some idea of the more complicated endeavors. That, praise be, completed the physi cal activity on my part—but not the treatment! "Bake" wanted to live up to his name, so he locked me in one of those 4-foot square "sweat boxes” to bake for 10 minutes. And only last night I nearly had frozen to death! When finally he dragged me out as greasy as a stoker he ordered me to the showers. And while int here I couldn't help wondering why athletes hated to be sent t othe showers. Gosh, what a wonderful feeling. Alcoholized—Externally. 'J'HEY still tell me I stayed under the bli»ful waters longer than I had done anything else. And then Bake made me go alcoholic, all over. Externally, Boss, so I'm still sober. In other words, he rubbed me down wTith it. And then what do you think he did? Put me under some thing that's going to make you think I ain't been up here at all, but under Florida's tropical sun. Ior I took a sun-tan bath. They tell me the w hole works would have cast something like five bucks if I had come here for such private treatment. It was a great thing to get for nothing. But if some of this typing is bad. it's only because my fingers haven't recovered as rapidly as the rest of me. Yep, I'm still alive at the end of this. But I think I’ll take a nap.

Dec. 4 —The mad dest, merriest crop of football Alberts in the Nation at the moment appears to have sprung up at Washington, D. C. They've quit pointing out the Wash ington Monument to visitors. The most hallowed spot of them all now is located just south of midAeld at Griffith Stadium, where Sammy Baugh stood last Sunday and pegged a touch down pass agoinst the mighty Green Bay Packers. There's some talk of re-naming the village Baughville, or at least running the tall Texan and all his teammates on the professional Redskins for Con gress.
