MURPHY STAR OF THE DAY Goes Through the Line for N Many Gains During Hot , Scrimmage. The Tale varsity was put through Its most exacting drill of the season yesterday when Frank S. Butterworth, who was half back on Frank Hlnkey'a elevens, went onto the gridiron and as sumed full charge of the coaching. Butterworth kept the men moving all the time, vigorously calling them down for not keeping hold of the ball. Soon after he assumed active charge of the coaching Butterworth' put Coo ney, Yale's heavyweight center, oyer . onto the second eleven and shifted Congdon to the first. Congdon is about fifty pounds lighter than Cooney, hut has been playing a first class game while Cooney has been playing very poorly of late. Cooney has not mani fested the slightest desire to be ag gressive of lata although he has always been a good defensive center. Congdon Is better on 'the offense than the de fense and in addition to his work at center is a plucky tackle. After he was shifted over to the varsity to-day he played a first, class game, bucking against Cooney for many gains. Under Butterworth's careful attention Goebel showed considerable Improve ment yesterday In his position at right guard. Brown on the second eleven has been showing up so well lately that If Goebel should not continue to Improve, he will get a chance in the varsity line. Murphy was the star of the clay's practice. Encouraged by Senator But terworth he went through the line for gain after gain, always finding a, hole in it and making every time ten 'yards at least. , Murphy was in the center of thf scrimmage the whole time and in the whole day's practice did not fumble the ball at all. Twine the varsitv eleven scored. The , first time Coy punted sixty yards from the varsity's thirty yard line where the first team had been pushed by the Kflrnnd. and Wvlie setting the ball on the , punt carried it over the line for the touchdown. Soon after the elevens ;had gone back to the center of the field Berger punted about thirty yards and Biglow, getting the ball carried it along for u good gain, but was unable to imake a touchdown. After this Berger fumbled the ball several times, and the aggressive work for the rest of the scrimmage was done by Murphy. On the five ,yard line Berger fumbled the ball and Paige picked it up and fumbl ed it again, Denny for the second elev en punting off. Tad Jones caught it on a fair catch and Murphy in several runs carried the ball to the one yard 1 line, where the second eleven held the varsity for two downs, Berger finally carrying it over. Murphy heeled the ball wnen it was Kicitea in ana cigiow made an unsuccessful try for a goal. '.

Line Men Weak at Bridgeport Given Special Practice. On account of the poor work of the New Haven High school line against Bridgeport Wednesday this important section of the eleven was given special practice yesterday. Bonnie Frlnkel, who was a star factor of the High eleven of 19 34, took charge of the men yesterday and drilled them through the fine points of defense and offense, put ting them through about,, the stlffest practice to which they have been sub dued this year. . , ' In the game at the Park City the New Haven line was unable to hold the op posing linesmen on the offense, nor were they able to withstand the at tack of the opposing backs In many Important stages of the game. New Haven ought to have scored twice as much as it did, but on several occa sions when it neared the goal line, the men couldn't open any kind of a hole, and it was necessary to return from whence they had come. This afternoon it is expected that a former Pennsylavnla gridiron hero, Ehrlckson, will devote much of the afternoon to 'coaching the eleven. To-morrow afternoon the New Haven High eleven will meet the Norwich Free academy team at Norwich. The latter has a pretty fast team, and it Is ex pected that they will give the locals a close rub for. their money. GRIDIRON NOTES. Murphy yesterday was given a chance to see what he could do, and time and time again he broke through the strong line of the scrub team for ten and fifteen-yard gains. There is no back on the Tale elevens who can find a hole in the line of an opposing team better than Murphy, or put it to better use. Brides went into the scrimmage under the fire of Yale's best graduate coaches yesterday as calmly as if substitute ends had charge of drilling the eleven, and with as much courage as if he were play ing in a championship game. Brides and Biglow are the best all around players on the eleven. Steve Johnson's Young Shevlins, a strong campus eleven made up of Juniors principally, go up the Hudson Saturday to play the eleven at the Pawling school... The Young Shevlins are especially strong in the center, which Is occupied by Peck McWilliams. It will be remembered by followers of college sports that the center pitched the first game for the Black Sox last spring and after letting twenty seven men walk was knocked out of the box in the first inning. The line-up against Pawling will be: McNulty and Jewell, ends; Spoerle and Carter, tackles; Daoust and Vars, guards; McWilliams, center; Jennings, quarterback; Charles Jones, left halfback; Donovan, right halfback; Selover, -fullback. O'Brien, who is making a name for himself as quarterback on the Swarthmoro eleven, is a New Haven boy and attended the New Haven high school. He passed up both Yale and Penn to enter Swarthmore, in spite of the efforts of Ed Green, the Quaker half back, to get him for Pennsy. The Dartmouth football squad is spending two hours a day at secret practice preparatory for the game against Amherst. The scrub team has daily scored on the 'varsity, and Coach O'Connor considers . that Dartmouth has done unsatisfactory work all the week. Inger- soll and Bankart, two of the leading Dartmouth players, are out of the game this week. In addition to Dartmouth, are having secret practice this The change of Cooney from the first to the second elevens will probably not be permanent, but will put the big center on his mettle. Congdon yesterday played a far better game than his heavy opponent, both before and after he took the position on the first eleven.

The startling statement that Pres ident Ban Johnson, of the American league, is back of t,he trouble with the American association, which has threatened to quit organized baseball, created a sensation in baseball circles in Chicago, yesterday. A man of prominence in Dig league baseball is authority for tne an nouncement. He frankly admits that ho has no proof, but says he is con vinced that thfl hand bf the big league president is discernible in the bellig erent attitude of the American asso ciation'. The belief that the American asso ciation will revolt this winter and re pudiate the national agreement Is very strong among men who are fa miliar among baseball affairs, and most of them seem to hold the same view as the magnate, who gave out the alarming statement that the idea of Invading Chicago with an outlaw league club was born In Ban John son's head.

TARES PilfZE SAILS OVER 873.4 MILES L'Isle de France Covers 867 Miles International Cup x6oes to Germany. Washington, Oct. 24. The official airline measurement of the flight of the two leading balloons in the Interna tional race from t. Louis, as computed at the Geological Survey to-day, is as follows: St. Louis (Forest Park) to Asbury Park, 873.4 miles; St. Louis (Forest Park) to Herbertsville, N. J., 867.4 miles. This means that the German entry, the Pommern, won the race, and that its pilot, Oscar Erbsloeh, and aid, Hen ry H. Clayton, now possess the inter national cup, which was won last year by Lieut. Lahm with a, flight of 402 miles, ; Members of the Aero club spent a good part of the day figuring out the exact distance covered by the balloons'. Although the American entries were not among the leaders, much satisfac tion was expressed over the way in which they had made the race. It makes no matter how long any of the balloons was up In the air, or how much actual distance was covered, It la the straight line drawn from the start ing point to the place of landing by which the length of the trip is meas ured. When it comes to a matter of five , or six miles this is no simple thing, as the best of maps of such a wide area as half a continent may be expected to err In some particulars. Lieut. Frank S. Lahm, who won the race last year, said to-day that he might contest the right of the Pom mern to first honor in the race. He had, at the beginning, expected great things of the L'Isle de France On the notable features of the race was the statement, made by nearly all of the pilots, that they could have gone much farther had they not been stop ped by the Atlantic Ocean. The Pom mern landed at Bradley Beach, near Asbury Park, N. J., the L'Isle de France at Herbertsville, N. J., a few miles from the shore.

Terry 3oger, old baseball veteran, Is making a fight to become a referee. He may land, and then again. Tommy Leahy and Rorty are pretty sure to stick. The referees will be czars this seasbn, as they ghould be and no back talk from the players will be in order. Manager Hanna of New Britain claims he has Fred Jeans and John Hancock to a contract, but it seems to be the impression in the west that Jeane is too valuable a man for the Akron management to let go.
