12 Groh Said to 1 REPORT BIG TRADE AMONG FOUR CLUBS Groh to Giants and Maranville for Reds, Says Rumor of Deal. SHEETING HERE TO-DAY t ?____ C American League to Ratify National Agreement?Other Baseball News. it, By DANIEL. . Following the big trade made by the Tankees and Brooklyn's exchange of Marquard for Ruether there was a lull In the baseball mart here yesterday. But further action of a very interesting j nature, particularly In so far as the Giants are concerned, may be expected to-day. Report last night had It that negotiations between the Xew York and Cincinnati clubs were progressing and that the Braves and Cardinals als t would be involved in a big trade which would bring Heinle Groh t> the Giants. Exactly how the return of the third baseman to the Xew Yorks was to be accomplished could not be learned. John McGraw and Charles Stoneham. who did not appear at the offices of the club all day, were said to be in conference with Garry Herrmann and Pat Moran at the Commodore. The Xew York officials are scheduled to leave for Havana tomorrow. * The Giants' offer of $150,000 and a Catcher for Groh appears to have been i^tJoclined definitely, against the desires of Herrmann. But Moran thinks that he -meeds only another player or two to refc gain the Xational Beague pennant, and *'he holds that under present conditions money cannot buy first class men. How It May Be Mniie. The "dope" is that the Giants will give up a big sum of money, a pitcher.* an outfielder and a catcher. The Braves are to give Maranvillo to the Reds and get a good part of the cash which the New York club Is to throw Into the pot, in addition to a player or two. The Cardinals are to relinqultsh either McHenrv or Smith, outfielders, to the Reds and get a catcher and some cash. That Maranvllle la to leav; the Boston club Is certain. Hank Gowdy. the catcher, who once was a substitute first baseman with the Giants, is to go with 1 the shortstop. E "Charley Ebbets yesterday entered the lists with a strong bid for Maranville I an/1 rj.vxi'/lv Hiit n-hlla Ha 1.? ?A Hia backstop his chance of getting the infiauder Is very slim, as the Giants have the Inside track in any deal Involving the "Rabbit." Brooklyn's main stock In trade Is Ruether, Its new pitcher. Wllbert Robinson Is reported not to be anxious to carry the former Red. who Is somewhat erratic. Ruether was taken over primarily for the purpose of using him in a deal. American League Meets To-day. j While the National Leaguers are try- i ?Sjig to make a trade or two. the Amerl- 1 ^an Leaguers will gather this morning at the Belmont for their annual meeting ?and, no doubt, for a dicker or two of their own. Tlu principal business to be transacted by the league, which still Is headed by Ban Johnson, is the ratification of the new national agreement. That this will be done goes without saying Tt may be that the New York, Boston and Chicago clubs, which were not represented on the league committee which helped draw up the agreement, will suggest a few amendments. The American Ig-ague committee consisted of Messrs. Dunn, Navln and Shlbe. Col. Jacob Ruppert. Harry Frazee and a representative of the Chicago clubCharley Comlskey Is home 111?Met yes**wrday and discussed some of the matters which may develop debate to-day. They favor signing players to twelve month contracts. Navln has summoned Ty Cobb to this city to sign him as manager of the De- j aroii chid, i.twii) nas hurl the olTer under consideration for some time and without doubt will accept. Phil Ball also wfli sign a manager to succeed Jim Burk<-. At least five men are under consideration for the Job, among them Lee Fohl, former leader of the Cleveland a. who seems to be ttye favorite. It appears certain that the American league season will open on the same day as the National League campaign? April 13. Johnson, who la due here today. will confer with John Hevdler In a day or two regarding playing rules, the spitball and the like, and the pair are very likely to draw up a set of regulations to govern world's Herles. They will submit their report to Judge Landls. The Judge Is expected hack here tomorrow and the league session may be .gfcxtended In order that he may have opportunity to ,i Jdr< ss the owners. It Is understood that the Judge has not yet signed his contract with the major leagues, and that this will be done tomorrow. Giants liny Infleldrr. Things were rather quiet In the offices of the Olants yesterday. Joe O'Brien had no news other than the announcement of the purchase of Kane, a third baseman, from Hartford of the K.astern league. This will not he welcome news to Arthur Irwin, the now r. s.anaipT of the Hartford cluo. u' Bill Donovan, new leader of the Phil- 1 lion Bru.nt llm.. ir? t V\ti Hlonls' 1 headquarters yesterday. When asked If tic had done anything to strengthen the Phillies Bill replied: "Everybody wants ; to take away what I have and give me "little In return, no It looka as If there ' Will be nothing doing for some time." But Bill did not seem to be worrying, t j Reports from Pittsburg that the ~ Pirates had anked for walvera on Whltted are denied. Brooklyn, for one. I wishes It were so. And a number of other clubs would grab the Inflelderl outfielder. The Yankees will report at Hhreveport c~on March 6 anil leave on April 1. No j significance In the leuvlng date, we hopo. * Jimmy Burke, recently deposed manager of the Browns, has been offered a etwihlng Job with the Bed So*, but Burke has an offer from another major league club and will consider the matter for a day or two before giving Harry Frame an answer. V Boston Divided on Deal. Fans In Boston are divided cs to whether the Red Ho* were stung or benefited by the deal with the Yankees. The Braves hnve derided to train In flalveeton and pass up the tour north jjirough the sticks, which was the "feature" of Boston training seasons of the past. Bill Pertlea has been acquired by the Cubs from T>os Angeles of the Pacific I Coast league. Bill Is a pitcher. The B " ? Cubs wtll send an tnflslder and an out fielder for him. Li 3e Headed for t \ Yanks Engage Scout to Watch Collegians THE Yankees yesterday brought out something new In professional baseball when they engaged I'aul Kritchell as scout for college, semi-professional and Independent club players. Kritchell will have nothing to do with the minor leagues and in the spring will devote himself entirely to watching the work of .the collegians in all sections of the country. Kritchell, who lives in The Bronx, will bo remembered as a seml-profes real anil Bridgeport, where he managed the club. The Yankees yesterday Issued an official announcement that Shreveport, La., had been selected as the training ground. That was not news, as it already had come from Shreveport. V J SOCCER TRIUMPH FOR PENN ELEVEN Defeat Princeton by Four Goals to Two in Second Playoff. Special Despatch to The New York IIeralc. Philadelphia, Dec. 16.?Before more than 4.000 persons Penn won the Intercollegiate soccer championship to-day for the second straight year by downing Princeton, 4 goals to 2. This battle, the third of the season between the Quakers and Tigers, was the second playoff, and Penn's followers were so overjoyed at the conclusion that they carried the players off the field at the Merion Cricket Club and then, led by the university band, held a snake dance up and down the field. Nothing like it has ever been seen before at a local soccer match. Trailing by two goals to one at the end of the first half, the Penn team came from behind in the final period and with a burst of speed, clever dribbling and scientific passing swept through the Tigers for three goals and the victory. Pat Spencer was the star for the victors, with Haywood, at goal, also doing yeoman service. Bingham pl&yed well at times, as did also Pennell. but Lee, the Chinese forward, was not at his best. Capt. Fisher and Keyes. the fullbacks, were the mainstays of the Tiger eleven, ably assisted by Stinson, Thomas and ! Woodbrldge. Princeton, which held Penn to a 3 to 3 tie In the four extra period match at Tlgertown last Saturday, sprung a surprise on Coach Stewart's team when It got a two goal handicap before the Ited and Blue was able to penetrate the net. Stinson scored a goal In the first few minutes of play. It came so suddenly that Penn's big cheering section was stunned and it took the players some time to get their senses. Stinson's kick was In front of the goal, but he had to evade two or thee Penn men to get in his good position. No long after, Woodbrldge, following a side kick, booted the ball squarely between the posts. Penn had the ball in Princeton territory most of the first period, but could not score until near the close, when Pat Spencer got loose and shot one by Goalkeeper Cooper. It was Bingham's sensational goal In a mtxup at the net that tied the score after fifteen minutes of the second half had elapsed. Previous to that Penn had wasted any number of shots. Princeton claimed thnt the ball had gone out of bounds Just before Bingham scored, but Referee Schofteld, of Harvard, said It was O. K. In the excitement Coach Nels of Princeton rushed out on the field and had to be escorted to the sidelines again. From that time on Penn showed more snap and better team work and It was not long before Pennell scored what proved to be the winning goal and Leo, the Chinaman, to clinch the game for the Red and Blue, booted one in Just a few minutes before the close of the match.

Wray of Monmouth, 111., was elected captain of next year's team. Wray played on the Western Naval Reserve team at Cleveland before entering Pennsylvania, and previous to that was at Monmouth High School. For the first time since the Red and Blue became prominent on the gridiron the coach of the football team failed to congratulate the newly elected captain and was not In the official picture of the 1920 team. J. W. Helsman, the coach, who was In Philadelphia on Wednesilay returned to New York to-day and left word that he would not be back until next spring. Eighteen of the twenty-one players who were recommended for their varsity letters cast ballots. Wray's choice was unanimous. These men w!ll oe officially swarded their varsity letter to-morrow: Capt.

THE N Giants Throug Amateur-" Pre for WesU County Coif Association Adds Attractive Fixture to Schedule. By KKHH X. I'ETRIE. Certain golfers on Long Island will j be Interested to hear that the West- j Chester County Golf Association contemplates holding during the coming ' season an amateur-professional golf i championship similar to the one In- ! augurated by them during the last 1 year. There will be this difference I Whereas In the Long Island affair the amateur player on each side was al- j lowed his club handicap', all play in i the Westchester tourney will be from I scratch. This amateur-professional meeting i will be the sixth big tournament on \ the W. C. G. A. calendar, as the or- j ionization already schedules an ama- 1 teur championship, an open champion- I ship, a junior title event, the Victory 1 Cup tourney and a team match witi | New Jersey. In connection with the j amateur championship there In also a ! team pairs best ball match, so that it can be clulmed for the Westchestei men that they have half a dozen events of championship Importance to interest them. It is said there Is also a good possibility of another novel tourney for the handsomest prize ever offered in the United States. Into this corner of the metropolitan district recently have been drifting some of the best professional golfers of the country, and as Westchester always has enjoyed its full share of the amateur talent the pro-amateur contest easily will take rank as one of the most important events of the year decided in that section. Among the pro fessionals claimed by the county association are Jim Barnes, who has signed up with the new Pelham Country Club for the next three years; George Mclean, who is returning to his old haunts as professional at Grassy Sprain after several years spent at Great Neck; Tom Kerrigan of Slwanoy, Arthur Reld of Ardsley, Archie Sanderson of Sleepy Hollow, Fred Canausa of Oak Ridge, John Farrell of Quaker Rid^e, Elijah Horton of Wykagyl, Tom Harmon of Hudson River. Jack Dowling of Scarsdale and Tom McNamara of Slwanoy. Putting only Slwanoy amateurs alongside of some of these experts Westchester still would be able to do battle In an amateur-pro way with any other section with fair hopes of success. President Given Dinner. The decision to extend the programme was reached at a dinner given the other night in the clubhouse of the Wykagyl Country Club by George E. Widmer, the retiring president. Mr. Widmer is a member of Wykagyl. Who will succeed him as chief executive may not be known for some little time yet, as the election of officers is left to thi executive committee. Reelected to of- ; floe as members of the executive com- j mlttee were R. P. Walden of Apawamis \ and John G. Anderson of Slwanoy. The j following new members also were j ! , named: L,ee w. Maxwell, sleepy Hoi- i low; Merrill K. Waters, Ardsley, ami I | C. V. Benton, Hudson River. Taking uji the caddie problem, there was much constructive discussion i ! among the delegates, and as a result I It will be surprising Indeed If before i long Westchester does not have the < i best drilled division of club toters to 1 I be found anywhere. The club plans to i work the problem out on Boy Scout i N. Y. U. FIVE READY | FOR YALE'S QUINTET A. A. U. Titleholders Confi- i dent of Defeating Elis. To-morrow night at the University Heights gymnasium the New York Uni- < versity basketball five will play the Yale Quintet in the Violet's first of: flclal home game. The holders of the National A.A.U. championship have been fast rounding Into shape, and last week easily disposed of the strong alumni team in a practice game by the score of 32 to 20. Against the Cooper Union quintet on Tuesday In another practice exhibition the Violet team harl ; easier going and won handily by the i score of 64 to 10. j Ed Thorp, coach of the Violet basket- i 1 [ ball team, has been driving his squad ! < consistently In preparation for to-mor- ; : row's contest. Three of last year's first string veterans still remain on the team, but the task of filling the positions left vacant by the graduation of j the All-American players, C&nn and Mooney. has been the difficult problem | for Thorp this season. At centre in ' the place of Paul Mooney, Ed Thorp has been working Robertson regularly, while Onnn's asalsmment at forward is being filled by Holman. Baker, Delaney and Qoeller, the veteran* of last year's championship five, are still playing their brilliant game at the guard posl) tions and forward. Vale comes to New Tork University for the first time since 11*10 and does not give promise of extending the Violet team. Flynn and Alderman are the two veterans of last year's El quintet that are performing up to col legiate standard thus far this yea., since Van Slyck, the star of the Yal team a year ago, has graduated from the New Haven Institution. Interest in to-morrow's game Is so great at the local institution that tickets for the game were sold out a half houi after they were put on sale yesterday afternoon. The limited rapacity of the New York University gymnasium will be cause for turning away several hundred students and alumni in addition to the many outsiders who have boon refused tickets for the contestA DONOVAN FOR A DONOVAN. Joseph F Moran, owner of the Jersey | City club of the International league, | announced yesterday that Patsy Donovan hsd been signed to manage, tha | Hkeeters next year.

EW YORK HERALD, 'h New Dicker )" Tourney zhester Links W. & J. Football Star Called to the Pulpit PITTSBL'HO, Pa., Dec. 16.?The | Rev. Burleigh Cruikshank, All-America football centre, has accepted a call as assistant pastor of one of Pittsburg's largest i ] Presbyterian churches, and In addition to his regular duties will pro- 1' mote athletic activities, it was an- | nounced here to-day by Dr. Maitland Alexander, pastor of the First Church. . Mr. Cruiltshank, a graduate of Blair College, Washington and Jefferson College and Prfnceton Theological Seminary, will begin his new duties the rtrst of the year, taking charge of religious, social and ath- i letic activities >among the young men and boys of the congregation. He will supervise summer camps at Indian Creek, Pa. At the present time Mr. Cruiksbank Is pastor of the First HI wnainam, i\. j, lines, a plan which should be acceptable both to the lads and the men who employ them. Reports were satisfactory. That of the treasurer showed a balance of $2ti4, an increase of $100 during the year. As for membership, this has increased by : eight clubs in the last two years, bringing the total to twenty-two. Commit- i tees looking toward a community of , interest in working out local golf problems will be announced shortly. While Now Jersey won the team match last summer, the Westchester : men expect to be able to reverse the ' decision when next the two sides meet. | ' Englewood was the scene of the last i' fracas, so next time the contest will be 1 staged "somewhere In Westchester." j 1 TOne Smith "Pro" at Olympic. Times do change and no mistake. The matter of ten or even half a dozen years ago no American professional golf team would have been considered complete without one or more of the Smith brothers. Willie has joined the great majority and Alex, although still 1 playing fine golf, possibly is not the ' power he used to be in competition. ' However, Macdonald is still very much 1 to the fore, and, according to some, Is 1 playing the best golf of his career, or 1 very close to it. Macdonald's name ' was not included In the list selected ' the other day by the executive com- I mittee of the P. G. A., from which a ' little later on the team to Invade Brit- 1 iin will be chosen, but it is possible 1 that the selectors did not know that 1 Mac Is back in the game with both 1 feet. He is now professional to the Dlymplc Club of San Francisco, which | has 7,50 members, a large percentage ' sf whom are golfers. John Black is likely to represent the 1 Pacific coast on the American team. 1 A. very fine golfer he is by all accounts, j In the California championships last vear Black made Macdonald Smith play j 1 second fiddle. But that was last year. j Young Smith then had just come hack I into the game after a long layoff, a spell in the army and a siege of work j in a shipyard. Those who have seer ' him recently say he still is qualified lO give IU LUC OIIUIII lornnj c ivvv>? >f three open championships. This feat, ! Incidentally, was narrowly missed by ' Macdonuld at the Philadelphia Cricket ' Club In 1910, on which occasion ho fin Ished in a triple tie with his brother Alex and J. J. McDermott, taking thin on the playoff.

The amateur list is headed by Frank ' W. Troeh of Vancouver, Wash., and I ?hows that eight of the ten men on the list claim a residence In the United States west of the Mississippi River. The j eastern section can lay < lalm to Fred llarlow of Ohio, who is No. 2 on the list, and to mark Arle of Illinois, who is tied for third place with C. A. Gunning j of Colorado. , Frank Troeh's position at the head of , the list has been well earned, for he competed at tournaments all over the coun- , try, aiming at 8,880 registered targets, breaking 8,660 of them, and thus acquiring an average of .9752.

With the team of the Harvard Club resting, Yale Club gained some ground yesterday In the Class A metropolitan squash tennis championship, moving up to a tie for second place with Columbia Club. The latter failed to live up to Its early season performances and did not win a single match of the seven contested with the Yale men on the latter's courts. It was closer than the score shows, however. for in four of the seven matches the Yalenslans were carried Into extra games to win. It was the first defeat of the season for the Columbia Class A team. Auguste J. Cordier, national champion, playing his first match In several weeks for the Yale Club, scored in straight games over Lyle E. Mahan of the Columbia Club Owing to an operation for appendicitis last summer, Cordier has not been competing regularly this seaBon and has not been extending himself but he appears to be approaching his best speed gradually and by the time the national tournament ,is decided In February may be as dangerous a contender as ever for the title. Against Mahan yesterday Cordier placed more reliance Dn skill and change of pace than on speed and hard hitting, and had no trouble winning by a margin of 1G?8 In each game Coward Scores Over l'utuain. Thomas Coward, the youngster who surprised Charles M. Bull, Jr., in the Dpen tournament at the Columbia Club recently, played No. 1 on the Yale squad and scored over E. W. Putnam lmpres siveiy. tjowara was stow to get. into stride, but In the second and third games his splendid speed, control and versatility of stroke gave him a commanding lead. In the final game he outscored his opponent nearly four to one.' Frederick S. Keeler of the Columbia Club lame closer to victory than the rest of the losing squad. Had he been able to maintain the pace he set In the first game and part of the second Keeler would have defeated H. R. Stern, but he lacked the stamina to keep going at top speed, and after narrowly escaping defeat In the second game. Stern took the last division of play by a score of 15?12. At the Crescent Athletic Club the home team scored Its first victory in Class A at the expense of the Princeton Club team. The Crescents led In five of the seven matches, Charles M. Bull, Jr., and R. Earl Fink showing to best advantage for the winners. In the only natch that required extra games James Doig of the Crescents defeated Basil Harris, 13?15, 16?10, 15?5. One of the two winners for the Tiger graduutes was O. De Gray Vanderbllt, a veteran squash tennis player who has not been competing very often during the last two or three seasons. The veteran proved that he has lost little of his skill, although his attack Is not as iggresslve as in the past, and he held the lead throughout the two games of his match with C. W. Dangler.

Army to Play in Bowl for First Time?Only Harvard Gara?> Away From Home. special Despatch to Thb Nbw York llBSALB. New Haven Conn., Dec. 16.?Yale's football schedule for the year 1921 was announced to-night and includes nine games, one more than the Ells played this year. There are three main points to the new schedule. The Army comes , J to the Bowl on October 22, the first time that this has ever happened. The Brown game Is advanced to a point two weeks before the Princeton game, j thereby breaking a football precedent tit Yale, and finally the Williams, sans Benny Bolnton, will make her Initial bow to a Yale football audience. The schedule follows: September 24, Bates; October 1, Vermont; 8, North Carolina; 15, Williams; 22, Army; 29, Brown; November 5. Maryland; 12, Princeton; 19, Harvard at Cambridge. All the games but the Harvard game will be played In the Bowl. The "consistently developed schedule" which Yale needed for the development of the teanr and which was an excuse for dropping Boston College can hardly be seen in the above list of dates. According to football mmen here to-night. Carnegie Tech, Boston College and Colcrate are dropped because dates could not be arranged, and aside from Willlams and Brown, Vermont, Bates and, the University of Maryland will be found In the list of .Yale opponents. A lot of new faces will be seen during the next football season at the Bowl. The sandwiching In of Maryland between the Brown aand Princeton games ought to give the Yale team a good rest for the conflict with the Tigers, something that has been needed for years. ROD AND GUN.
