Groh Said to 1
Groh to Giants and Maranville
for Reds, Says Rumor
of Deal.
t ?____
American League to Ratify National
Baseball News.
. 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
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
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.

Things were rather quiet In the offices
of the Olants yesterday. Joe

of the purchase of Kane, a

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.
Defeat Princeton by Four Goals
to Two in Second
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
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
Capt. Fisher and Keyes. the fullbacks,
were the mainstays of the Tiger eleven,
ably assisted by Stinson, Thomas and !
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. The line-up:

Pit ii.apklph ia. Pa., Dec. 16.?At a
meeting of the University of Pennsylvania
football letter men this afternoon
quarterback Rex D. 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

County Coif Association Adds
Attractive Fixture to
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
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

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

eight clubs in the last two years, bringing
the total to twenty-two. Commit- i

interest in working out local golf problems
will be announced shortly.
While Now Jersey won the team

men expect to be able to reverse the '
decision when next the two sides meet. | '

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

that the selectors did not know that 1

The American trapshootlng Assocla- | <
tion gives the ranking of ten high men ! (
in both the amateur and the professional :
classes for the season of 1920. The rec- 1
ords of the A. T. A. show that 10.000 (
trapshooters took part in one or more of 1
the 199 registered tournaments during <
the past season, which was brought to ,
an official close at Houston, Tex., by the .
registered tournament held by the Hous- i
ton Gun Club, November 25 and 26.
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. In addition to I
this victory In the United States Frank
Troch won the English clay bird championship

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

Doig of the Crescents defeated Basil

One of the two winners for the Tiger

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.

blanca, the new world's chess champion,
| in the exhibition of simultaneous play
last nlgrht at the rooms of tne Manhat1
tan Chess Club in the Hotel Sherman 1

by players, members and visitors. Many ,
expert opponents were seen to be In j
line when, shbrtly before 9 o'clock, the
famous Cuban made his appearance,
and, after Introduction by Robert Raubltschek,
chairman of the tournament
committee, began his rounds.
It was a little after midnight when i
i Oapablanca wound up his performance, j ,
1 Of the thirty-five players who faced hhn i .
not a single one was abte to defeat the j
title holder. He won thirty-two games
and drew In the other three. The first
to draw against the champion was
Toscha Seldl, the violinist, who finished
In twenty-six moves. Capablanca offered
the draw. Walter Malowan drew
his game In thirty moves. Ralph L. c
Blaikle, the only other to gain a draw, t
went out In thirty-five moves t
There was much variety in the choice s
of openings, of which there were elgh- Y
teen altogether. Capablanca was most \
partial to the Ruy Lopez and developed 1
nine of the games with the help of the 1
Spanish attack. There were four each r

Cod Now IlltinK at the Farm*. e
Fishing at the Farms is now very good. 11
according to Capt. Jake Martin, who has f
anchored his hoat on these grounds for the
last two days. Wednesday's catch had cod u
up to 25 pounds, and there were more than 11
one hundred cod brought In. The average
weight was between 10 and 12 pounds. One 11
man boated 12 cod himself. H"sides this we 11
had a dozen haddock on Wednesday, aomo *'
of them 10 pounds and any number of black- *
fish up to 8 pounds,
j The famous "Arthur Thornton" cunners ^
' are out there in quantities, and they run up _
i to 2'4 pounds. Yesterday we fished the .
! ground with good success, continued the cap- ),
| tain, and Dr. Forshay, one of the passengers _
boated a 30 pounder. We had cod, haddock,
pollock, blackfish and big cunners In the ^
catch yesterday. v
In answer to Arthur Thornton's query j,
about the large flah at the Cholera Banks, (
we had the run of largo fish out there and t
around Thanksgiving time there was caught r
quite a number of cod up to 35 pounds in v
weight when most of the boats were fishing p
the inshore grounds. Catches ran as high r
as 250 cod on some of the earlier trips, and t
many of these were big fish. 1,

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.
