William Kalthoff, Cincinnati, de
feated Charley Morin in the Inter
state Three-Cushion Billiard league,
50 to 48.
Harvard and Princeton easily hold
the center of the football stage for
Saturday. The Tigers are favored
because of the good record they have
made so far this season. Speedy
Rush has finished scrimmage work
with his men and signal drill will be
the order for the future.
Several years ago, when "Speedy"
Rush was coaching at University
school, Cleveland, C-hio, he took hold
of a young chap named Charley Bar
rett, taught him a lot of football and
developed him into a star..
This year Rush is head coach at
Princeton. One team that has a
chance to beat him to the eastern
championship is Cornell. And Cor-
Virginia Poly boosted his total for
the season to thirteen. His nearest
rival is Martin, Navy halfback, who
has scored seven.
A drop kick record that has stood
17 years was smashed the other day
when Mark Payne of Dakota Wes
leyan booted a field goal of 63 yards,
sending the ball directly between
the goal posts guarded by Northern
The previous drop kick record was
62 yeards, set in 1898 by P. J. O'Dea
of Wisconsin against Northwestern
university at Evanston.
So many big games bearing on sec
tional championships have been
played lately the feat of Payne, per
formed in a game between two rather
obscure elevens, was almost com
pletely smothered.
The kick, however, makes Payne a

nell has a great team because this
same Charley Barrett is captain and
using his tricks Rush taught him
when they were teacher and pupil
back in the "bushes."
Cornell has beaten Harvard. A
Harvard victory over Princeton
means an edge for Cornell in the bat
tle for the big honors.
Barrett is the leading candidate of
the east for the quarterback position
on the Ail-American eleven. He has
put Cornell on the football map. His
selection of plays has been great and
he has run his team with a master
Barrett has also starred in actual
play. He is Cornell's biggest ground
gainer. He has scored more touch
down than any backfield man in the
big schools. Two touchdowns against
national star and his name will go
aown m the, history of the game with
those of the greatest hooters the
gridiron ever produced.
The only field goal ever scored at
a greater distance than kicked by
Payne was a kick from placement by
J. T. Haxall of Princeton against
Yale in 1882, 33 years ago. Haxall
place-kicked 65 yards.
Promoters have been wondering
why Leach Cross has not been
around looking for fights. He used
to fight several times a week and
drew big money.
Cross has given an explanation. He
says he is about to break the bank
in Wall st. He says he bought 350
shares of "war baby" stock at 69 and
now it is quoted at 285.
Cross started as a buttonhole.
