Federal league officials will con
vene in Chicago today to confer
about unfinished business left over
from their meeting in Indianapolis
last Tuesday. Weeghman, Gilmore,
Edward Gwinner of Pittsburgh, Car
roll Rasin of Baltimore and W. E.
Robertson of Buffalo will probably
be in on the talkfest
Maybe representatives or organ
ized baseball will join in the confab.
That remains to be seen. The Fed
eral crew recently journeyed to
French' Lick, Ind., to hold converse
with American and National league
folks about peace, according to the
dope. But that meeting blew up. The
questions is, will they carry out the
French Lick plans here?
John Greene dern near broke this
season's bowling record last night in
a game between the Lederers and
the Cheltenhams in the Bowen
league in South Chicago. After get
ting ten straight strikes he pulled a
split and finished with 286. The rec
ord is 290. The Lederers trimmed the
Cheltenhams three in succession.
August Kieckhefer made a grand
finish and beat Jess Lean of Detroit
in their Interstate Three-Cushion
league match at Bensinger's last
night The score was 50 to 37, in
seventy innings.
Percy Lawrence and Willie Han
ley of San Francisco and Vincenzo
Madonna, an Italian, were added to
the list of starters in the six-day bi
cycle race at the Coliseum, -which will
start a week from Friday night
Now they are hitting at Pete Rus
sell, captain and quarterback of the
Chicaeo university, with the profes
sional player claims. Rumors thaw
have been in circulation on the Min
nesota campus for several days ques
tioning the eligibility of the Maroon
star came to a head last night when,
according to a report, an eleventh
hour protest will be filed against
Capt. Russell emphatically denied
charges of semi-professional baseball
"Tear 'Em Up" Shea is one of the
big reasons the Princeton backfield
this reason is the best the Tigers have
had in years. He has ripped up every
line he has faced and the only time
he was brought to a standstill was
when the Tigers got within striking
distance of the Harvard goal and the
Crimson forwards massed to check
Each of the four Tiger backs has
a specialty. Glick, captain, is the
"cheer up" boy. He can get more
out of his players than any quarter
back in the east, with the possible ex
ception of Barrett of Cornell.
Tibbott, at right half, is a drop
kicking wonder. Driggs, at full, does
all the punting. Shea is the batter
ing ram.
Shea is touted as one of the great
est starters the eastern gridiron ever
produced. His legs, when he leaps
forward for a dash into the line, seem
to shoot his body out like steel
springs. In the few steps he takes
to reach the line he gathers terrific
speed, ano?if the forwards fail to open
a hole for him, he opens it himself.
As a line plunger Shea is the near
est approach to Ted Coy the east has
produced since Coy himself was
.bowling them over for Yale.
Dick King, Harvard halfback, who
scored a touchdown against Prince
ton, is married and has two children,
a girl two years of age and a son six
months. He is working his way
through college.
For several years King tried for
every position on every team organ
ized at Harvard, but never made
goal. Finally Brickley, football star,
took charge of him last season and
taught him some football. This year
he made the varsity, and is the col
lege hero.
If Johnny Kilbane agrees to meet
George Chaney, the Baltimore, Md.,
lad with a sledge hammer punch, ha
