Last Year and Is Pilot of
Eastern football men for years have
been confronted by the problem of
overcoming tight lines of opponents.
Even Harvard, supposed to be one of
the best teams in the country, found
Princeton's line too much for it last
year and to tie the game, resorted to
clever forward passing. It was be
cause the East has been slow in tak
ing up the pass as shown by the
strong antagonism against the play at
every rule meeting that Harvard suc
ceeded so well as it did.
That the East could overcome
strongly trained lines by trick play
and other thrusts indicates, possibly,
a stronger attack than the Middle
West has developed, taken season
after season.
Football Intricate In West.
The conference, taking to" the for
ward pass as the line of least resist
ance, developed this highly. It went
farther, It developed plays to disguise
the throwing of the ball. In this
way, the development of regular line
piercing or rounding plays and the so
called curtain plays to cover a forward
pass, meant that the usual number of
tricks taught a team ranged from 20
to 80, writes Fred A. Hayner in the
the Chicago Daily News.
The East, handicapped by the ten
yard rule and the removal of the
pushing masses, bent to the study of
line piercing in earnest, until now it
has evolved a system highly dangerous
to a Midwest team .where scores are
frequently held to nothing or to one
Should a western team breeze down
there and run up a quick big score by
forward passing or freak running, it

Other Star Features.
Base stealing is regarded as an art
temporarily lost In the major leagues.
The season's batting averages for col
legeplayers would Indicate that among
the" collegians base stealing is still in
dulged in.
Thome Murphy, a son of the late
"Mike" -Murphy, playing 16 games for
Yale, stole 14 bases. He was not
thrown out in any attempt to steal,
and he was the ranking base runner
of the college field.
In all the leading eastern colleges
there were 33 men that batted .300
or better, and few games were de
cided by long scores. There was
plenty of good pitching.
One hundred and nine regulars of
leading college teams were able to
gather only 21 home runs during the
season and no collegian made more
than two four-base hits in 1921.

Guire, captain and tackle of this year's

can easily be imagined the hopeless
ness of expecting a game like the
eastern attack going out to catch up.
It would be like a snail trying to
catch a rabbit. But so far western
teams Invading the East have not
fared so well as eastern teams play
ing in the Far West, as did Harvard
and Dartmouth.
The necessity of learning many sig
nals and the intricate moves of the
midwestern plays Is a severe task on
football men in the conference.
Fewer Plays in East.
At the, same time it is bound to in
crease the thinking power under stress
in a game. That, of course, is one of
the principal values of football. The
eastern man with fewer plays is most
concerned with his own performance in
the machine. He passes much time re
viewing the limitations of his problem,
being very careful not to overstep cer
tain boundaries which may interfere
with the man next to him. His car
dinal principle - is to stick by his
job, defend his little bailiwick and
let the rest of the world take care of
Backfield men, of course, have more
latitude. They may even rise to bril
liant self initiative, sometimes doing a
thing a little better than the coaches
expected. The- coach is not con
cerned with thaHrilliancy of the play
er, but with the arrangement of men
which permits one to get into the open
and star.
The Mid-West game is far more an
Imaginative stimulant than In the East.
The East apparently the stronger be
cause it plays closer to the ground and
is not imaginative.

the averages of pinch hitters.
His figures show that Tris

to bat in a pinch by Tris hav
ing an average of ,333. In the
National, Phillies pinch hitters
netted an average of .348. The
best Individual average made
in a pinch has been that of Ed
Gharrity, of Washington, four
hits in six times up, for a mark
of .6G7.

Fan Traveled Far to Shake
Hands With Yankee Star.
One Ambition Was to Greet Man Who
Made' $50,000 a Year as Baseball
Player and Then Tell Folk
at Home of Incident.
Babe Ruth is willing to admit that
ball players are strong for "commer
cialized" baseball to the point of get
ting what they think is their fair
share, in the way of salaries, from the
receipts of the gate, and the average
ball player is pretty much Bolshevik
on that point, but the Babe says a lit
tle incident in Louisville started him
to thinking along a new line as re
gards the money end of it.
The Yankees played an exhibition
game in Louisville and the Babe, as
the big noise, was the center of at
traction, of course. He gave the usu
al amount of time to visiting a school
for boys, talked to them in the way
they like, extolling the idea of play
ing ball to win for the sake of win
ning, admonishing them to always
play fair and square, etc.
Then Ruth went to the ball park.
There was more or less introducing
and butting in of bugs who hadn't
been introduced, all of whom wished
Babe Ruth.
to meet Babe Ruth. Up comes one
guy, crowds his way to the fore and
says :
"Mr. Ruth, will you shake hands with
"Sure," said the Babe.
When the man had released Babe
from his fond grip he cocked one eye
and said, with a smirk of satisfaction:
"Well, I come a 100 miles just to
shake your hand. I always wanted
to shake hands with a man who made
$50,000 a year, and now I've done it.
Babe Ruth is pretty young, but he
has an appreciation of values. "That
seemed to be all that guy had in
mind," he said. "Just thinking about
the money I make, or he thinks I
make. Reckon if I'd given him an au
tographed ball he'd peddled it around
the pawn shops or put it up at auction
to see what he could realize on it.
And then they talk about us ball play
ers being money mad !"
No Longer Any Such Play as "Ball
Accidentally Hitting Bat Becom
ing Dead Ball."
Baseball players of the fields and
the smaller cities seem to have over
looked the fact that the rule about a
pitched ball accidentally hitting the
bat, even though the batter tries to
dodge- it, has been annulled. There
is no longer any'srfch play as the "ball

a dead ball." When the ball acci
dentally hits the bat it is in play as
if it had been swung at by the bats

a couple of scrub teams had just com

some fun at the expense of a small

sidewalk, stuffing a big glove in his
