bulk of sympathy with the Big Red
team. Cornell downthed the Crim
son last season, and the Ithaca elev
en is even better this fall.
Cornell has a game later in the
season with Michigan and Yost has
the best team the Wolverines have
boasted for several campaigns. He
will have an excellent chance when
his pupils meet Cornell, barring in
juries. So, should Cornell down
Harvard, Michigan would bulk large
by thrashing Cornell.
Garry Herrmann is still trying to
land a bull moose for his private zoo
in Cincinnati Garry is not interest
ed in what Barney Dreyfuss says
about the national commission. Ban
Johnson says he could tear John
and his National league administra
tion to pieces if he wanted to, but
refrains for fear of hurting the game.
All of which holds us goggle-eyed
as we wait for the gents in question
to unburden themselves and tell
what they know about each other, if
But, rooting under a mess of per
sonalities, it is plain that Dreyfuss
has logic on his side in a demand for
a change in the make-up of the na
tional commission and that does
not mean any question as to the per
sonal integrity of the members.
But it seems fair that this trium
virate, which handles some of the
biggest questions in the game, ques
tions which, through the placing of
players, have an indirect bearing on
the outcome of pennant races, should
be without personal interest in the
game. Herrmann is owner of a ball
team, and Johnson and Tener are at
the head of rival leagues. They are
interested, and, no matter how free
they may attempt to keep their
minds, some bias must creep in.
Owing to the death of four of the
most earnest workers of the Max
well settlement, who were drowned
in an automobile which plunged
through the open draw at the 12th
street bridge, the Clifton Whales of
the Maxwell settlement canceled i
their indoor baseball games sched
uled for today and tomorrow. They
would like to rearrange these games
for later dates. For games call
Canal 6284 or write to Harry Schim
el, 555 W. 12th pi.
Some time ago Jimmy Kilroy,
North Side fight manager, wrote a
letter in here to the effect that he
was retiring from the ring game.
Knowing how Jim loved the game, we
didn't print it, figuring he would
come back when he had gotten over
a spell of discouragement he was la
boring under then.
Jim is back. He has matched his
lightweight, Andy Williams, with
Rabbit Hedlin, the fight to take place
before a suburban club some time in
the near future, probably Nov. 16.
Final arrangements will be made to
morrow. No love is lost between
Williams and Hedlin and the fight
should be a hummer.
Johnny Griffiths outpointed Jimmy
Duffy in ten rounds at Buffalo. Both
men were willing to fight, but Griffiths-did
the greater damage.
