THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, PHOENIX, SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 26, 1921. THEARJZONAKEPUBLICAN football 1 ICj.olr I AND MEET TODAY IN BIG GRID HI tRepublloan A. P. Leased Wire -XEW YORK. Nov. 25. The Army nd Nary tonight were awaiting the sound of the bugle that tomorrow should set them plunging Into each other for service gridiron honor of 1921. The lads from Annapolis had their spy glasses fastened on what they deemed to be the star of vic tory, for they were giving the odds in the betting. But the boys from West Point had come down the Hudson determined to bombard into oblivion the hopes of their cousins In the service and confident that the defeats they had received from Tale and Notre Same would only serve as bracers. Defeated only by Penn State after having battered Princeton into sub mission, the Middies took the field to day at the Polo Grounds and put in a period of snappy signal practice. Outside the gates, waiting to get in, was the Army, and as soon as the Annapolis eleven had called it a day, the West Pointers began frisking over the gridiron. Tonight both elevens turned In early. Tomorrow morning their sup porters arrive a regiment from West Point and a regiment from An napolis, to march onto the fir Id and give New York its annual scenic treat. Arriving from Washington are of . Ticers high In each branch of the service, diplomats and statesmen, figures prominent In the civic, finan cial and social life of the nation.

French, the Army's star back, will not be In the first line-up facing the Navy, It was announced tonight. He probably will be sent Into action after the first half. r 1 0 Injury To Heard Responsible For Coyotes' Defeat Loss of Thursday's big game to the ' Indians Is attributed by Coyote fol lowers to an Injury to Joe Heard, the team's regular right end and kicker, who was forced from the game In the third period because of injuries. Heard's Injury was sustained only afew minutes before the team scored its second touchdown. In conse quence, one of the linesmen was called upon to try for the goal from touchdown and failed, the ball sailing beneath the cross bar. Had Heard been in the game. Coyote backers be lieve that the goal would have been made for he has shown remarkable ikill at placements all season. In the story of the game, appear - !ng in Friday morning's Arizona Re publican, it was stated that Heard's failure to kick the second goal cost the Coyotes the game. The writer, however, had not noticed that Heard had been injured and taken from the game, and knowing that the end was the regular kicker, supposed that he had made the try. Today 's 'Sport Angle The present football season has failed to produce anything new in the way of unusual plays. From the standpoint of Inventive genius, none of the coaches has produced anything startling. That goes for the West md reports from the East bear out the assertion. Western coaches are using some shift plays that Eastern Si pn tors declare illegal. The Pittsburg team has been using i fcuort forward pass this year from tho playef about to be tackled.

Nov. 25 Thanksgiv ing day football clashes left four of the major league elevens of the East undefeated this season LaFayette, Cornell, Pennsylvania State, Wash ington and Jefferson. LaFayette finished its season last Saturday, but the others brought their campaigns to an end yesterday. Cornell overwhelmed Pennsylvania, 41 to 0; Penn. State was held to a scoreless tie by Pittsburgh, and Washington and Jefferson won from West Virgin.a, 13 to 0. Cornell, in its eight victories this season, was the greatets scoring ma chine in the East, with a total of 392 points to their opponents' 21. simply tosses the ball to the player who Is uncovered. Pittsburg worked this . play successfully five times in the game, with Syracuse, once for a touchdown. Centre received much praise for a shift play that It used successfully against Harvard. Reports have it that the Centre play was simply a modified Colgate spread. It is a spread formation from which teams having a triple threat can use the pass, running attack or kick to equal advantage. To stop the shift, the op position must loosen its defense which very often proves fatal. Georgia Tech failed to use its much advertised shift to any great advan tage in the game with Penn State. It is said the Georgia shift is not very effective unless it is off with a run ning start. Southern officials,, it seems, have overlooked this feature in passing on the play. The very first timo it was used against Penn, the Southerners drew a penalty. The ac tion of the officials was a severe blow to Georgia, which had been using the play in that manner. That opening penalty really spelled defeat for the 1 Southerners. B. E. The ten cent cigar has again come into its own La Azoraleading the crowd as usual. ROTHENBERG & SCHLOSS CIGAR CO., DISTRIBUTORS Denrcr, Colo. What kind of a fellow Is Babe Ruth? I have been asked that question hundreds of times since Babe hogged the sporting spotlight. Ruths remarkable ac-illty to hit home runs has made him the most discussed individual in the history of the game. Thousands of fans wonder what kind of a fellow he really is, when not engaged in busting " them over the fence. No doubt a great many people have the impression that Ruth feels his greatness. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Ruth is a big likable kid. He has been well named. Babe. Ruth has never grown up and prob ably never will. Success on the ball field has in no way changed him. Everybody likes him. You Just can't help it. A little Incident that came under my observation at the Polo Grounds last summer, will best an swer the query: "What kind of a fellow Is Babe Ruth?" I was umpiring In New York at the time, and as is customary came on the field about 10 minutes before fcame time to get ready for the start. As I neared the bench of the Yank ees, a youngster about 12 came through one of the exit gates nearby and said to me: "Mr. Evans, would you object to my taking a picture of Babe Ruth?" . The youngster was a clean cut looking boy, well dressed, and carried what I could see was a very expen sive kodak. I assured him that I hadn't the slightest objection, but that it would be best for him to fake the matter up with Ruth. The youngster wasn't very strong for it, and suggested that I get the permis sion. I was interested in seeing Just how Ruth would treat the youngster, and Insisted that he speak to Babe about it.' I have knon some stars who would have ignored the young ster entirely, but I didn't think Babe HOW M O ' Z This flash of action from the 42-7 victory of the University of California over Stanford which initiated the big new Stanford football bowl, shows Andy Smith's warriors putting into practice that classic adjuration MIDGET ICEY ID YOUNG ARNOLD WILL TOP. OPEMK AT ill THEATER Young Arnold and Midget Macy will top the first weekly boxing pro gram to be staged at the Kamona theater next Monday evening. Young Arnold claims the bantam weight championship of Arizona and Macy comes here from Los Angeles with claims to the coast title. Anold has earned an enviable record in Phoenix, his bout with Tiny Kedfield of Prescott being considered the best little scrap ever held in this city. He is a mixer from the gong and a clever youngster with a bright fu ture. Macy has a good record and looks as good as his record when he dous the gloves. He will meet Arnold in a scheduled six round main event on a 30-round boxing card. oung Kivers ana Soldier Brown will meet In a four-round number. Rivers defeated Brown in the best bout on the Thanksgiving card at the Legion arena, and Brown is anxious to prove that Kivers did not beat him. The report of the Legion bouts .as printed in yesterday's Republican stated that Rivera and Birown fought a draw which should have been awarded to Kivers for his aggressive ness. In Justice to Referee Hegele the report is corrected, as Referee Hegelee did give Rivers the decision. Referee Hegelee has enough troub les in the ring trying to keep the fighters working without adding bad decisions to his record. The Repub lican hastens to correct the error and give Referee Hegelee credit for his decision. Jim Douglas and Young Romo will box four rounds and Cactus Brown and Terrible Busso will step over four paces of their own. Ben Turpin and Manuel Portia will do a four round number and a big battle royal will round out an eve ning's entertainment of fisticuffs that looks like the real thing. The Ramcna theater will seat close to 1000 fans and the house is com fortably heated. Phoenix fight fans can enjoy their favorite indoor sport under ideal conditions. The manage ment has arranged a long card in order that the fans will receive plenty of fight in the event the ref eree is forced to stop any bout where the boys do not show enough action to suit him. The bouts will be staged under the CD uth's would. The boy walked over to the Yankee bench and made known bis desire to Ruth. The big. fellow smiled broadly and said, j "Sure." That one word from the famous Babe Ruth caused the boy to smile almost as broadly as Babe. It also gave him courage, and he confided to Babe that he would like to get an action picture of him making a home run. Getting off the bench, Ruth picked out his favorite bat. walked out in front of the bench, and then took one of his deadly swings and held it until the boy had snapped a couple of pictures.

The referee Is given power to call fouls for unsportsmanlike conduct on the part of the players or specta tors. When the ball Is tossed up between two players the referee and the um pire shall see that the other play ers are in such positions that they do not interfere with the Jumpers. On a court laid out in accordance with the rules, the entire backboard is to be considered in bounds, but the supports are considered out of bounds. An important change lias been made to the effect that in starting a dribble from a stationary position, a player has the same privilege as baa Greatest Hit In all my life I never saw a more delighted youngster. He thanked Ruth profusely, and was about "to walk off the field, when Babe said to him: "Perhaps you would like to have a picture taken with me?" That one almost floored the kid.

Nov., 2a WlHie Hoppe. who recently lost the world's IS. 2 balkline billiard championship to "Young Jake" Kchaefer, after hold ing it for 16 years, today challenged the new champion to a return. match and posted a $2i0 guarantee for ap pearance. Under the conditions of the recent tournament in which Schaefer was victor, he does not have to defend his title until March IT,, 1022, and it is believed he will do nothing but exhibition work until that date. ering his speech, he said he would be delighted. Calling one of the other Yankees, who understood the use of the kodak. Babe put his arm around the boy and posed for a couple of pictures. A pat on the back and a hearty hand shake followed. Some 25,000 people were In the stands. Evidently all of them were as Interested as I in the incident, for as Babe walked to the bench he got a greater ovation for that little act of kindness than for any home run he ever made at the Polo Grounds. That is the kind of a fellow Babe Is. v "v new. wi?i. v - Pinky Mitchell To Get Crack At Benny Leonard January 1 Republican A. P. Leased Wire NEW YORK.

Nimrods Report Duck Hunting In Valley Very Fine Duck shooting In the valley Is ex ceptionally good this year, according to the Nimrods who shouldered arms and Journeyed down the streams yes terday morning to bag their own Thanksgiving dinners. The sportsmen report duck shoot ing along the river and sloughs as very good and some fine canvasback and mallard killings were recorded curing the day. The sudden cold snap In the north and the frozen lakes and swamps are driving the birds south this year and shoot ins; should be at its best during the next two weeks. Quail shooting is still good In the valley. Sportsmen are returning daily with the limit of "top knots" for the evening meal. The popularity of professional football seems to be on the wane. A year or two ago it looked as If the professional game was sure to go big. A reaction, however, has set In, which makes it seem that the public has soured on the professional "grid" game. In Cleveland, where the game went big for a time, interest seems to have died out to great extent. In fact the crowds dropped off so badly that the Cleveland management found it far more profitable to book games away from home on a straight guar antee, than to gamble with the weather snd the enthusiasm of the fans. It is beginning to look as if foot ball was truly the school and col lege game. Spirit is what makes the game so'attractlve from the col lege standpoint. That spirit is entirely lacking in the professional gnmes. This despite the fact that practically all the leading pro teams are com posed almost entirely of f"rmer col lege stars, many of them All-Amerl-can selections. A cumber of the former stars who havo turned "pro" seem to have for gotten all about the old college spirit. Instead of playing to the limit of their endurance, they save them selves at every opportunity, and take few if any chances. It is only natural that any sport in wbieii there is a decided lack of effort and interest by those taking part, should sooner or later suffer as a resulL That tells the story of professional football. POST-SEASON GAMES "If Ohio State was able to play a post season game with University of California in 1920. why not a game with Iowa in 1921 V That was the Question hurled at Ohio State, when word came from that university that such a came was impossible, even if State and Iowa wire willing, because of the confer ence rule preventing such a game. Athletic Director St. John of Ohio State explains the State-California game thusly: "The trip to California wr made for a purpose other than playing a game of football. It was lesired to show the coast alumni that State needed a stall m. end that help from them was badly needed. The trip was a great cuc cfss. other than artistically. Old grads on the coast gave us great financial help. We explained to the Big Ten our purpose, and It was granted. It was the first time In history snd probably will never hap pen again."

All hope for a post-season football game for the Phoenix High school team now rests with the California Interscholastic Football association the power that controls high school football on the coast. Ralph Millard formerly of The Re . publican staff and now a resident of Long Beach. California, in a letter to "PIdge" Pinney explains the con- ditions existing on the coast. The following paragraph from Mr. Mill ard's letters carries the etory: "I interviewed the principal of the high school, then the president of , the board of education, then the su perintendent of schools, then Coach Kienholtz and I took it tip with the C. I. F. having found that all others concerned were agreeable and the C. I. F. stated that the state council of the C. I. F. had passed that "No high school in California can play with out-of-the-state teams UNTIIj they have completed all their eched- ' uled games in the C. I. V. seTIes AND then applied for permission to the state council to play said game." This ruling was made when San J3iego applied for a similar game OVIIIO llllltg. Blllt-V.. In order to book a game with a coast team Phoenix high must first get permission from the C. L F. be fore Inviting a conference team. If Long Beach wished to arrange a game in Phoenix the 'request would , have to come through the California school. Mr. Millard makes It plain In his letter that Long Beach is anxious Jo play in Phoenix, but the school ath letic board does not care to make any i move that might force them out of the conference. When the conditions were mads clear Coach Robinson immediately wired the president of the C. I. F. re questing that permission be granted Long Beach to arrange an out of town game if the invitation is ex tended for the Phoenix game. If the C. L F. grants the request Coach Robinson will invite Long Beach to play Phoenix High in this city. The Coyote team has completed a very successful season and the ath letic board of the Phoenix Union High school feels that the boys are entitled to post-season trip to San Diego, but the directors and Coach Robinson prefer a I'hoenix game with Long Beach to give the local fans the benefit of the game after the support accorded the team this year. If the game is arranged it will give the fans an opportunity to see Coach Robinson's Wonder Team in action once more before disbanding. No action will be takn toward In viting Long Beach until word is re ceived from the C. I. F.
