AL DEVORMER GIVES AWAY HIS TRUE AGE A sxonp of Yankees were sproad around the turf just in fnnt of the press box during battins practice at the Polo grounds. Al Devormer, one of Wallie Sehang's understudies, , chirped up: "Well, this is my birthday, men. I'm twenty-five today. "Twenty-live I" scoffed Mc Nally. "Why, I'll bet you're at least twenty-eight or twenty-nine thirty thirty-five " "Thirty-five !' roared Devor nior. "llow do you get that way?"

The next year he won the champion ship at Chicago, and in the following year he captured the Tan-American title at San Francisco and $1,000. the largest purse ever ottered in any tour nament, to that time.

In football owing to the fact that nobody knows what it is all about. There are so many coaches at the educational institutions (slang for col leges) that the head coach must coach the other coaches. These are the days when the base ball scribe begins to smile wanly when anyone refers to the game as the great American xastime. There may be some arguments about the ranking of tennis players, but who'll claim that Tilden is not the master of them all? William It.

Crimson Field Leaders Are Kept Out of Scrimmage as Much as Possible Killinger Was Greatest Run ning Back of Year. Which is the best system in football, the one-employed by Harvard, or the one used by Penn State? These two teams played a 21 to 21 tie, so there i9 no chance to reach a decision, when considering the score of that game alone. Harvard's system is to use the quar terback as a field general almost ex clusively. It is his duty to select the plays, but have some one else execute most of them. The quarterback is unquestionably the thinker on a football team. The Harvard system ' 'r no quarter- r - m t ILLI or Carries Winning Record. Sweet Dot lie Day.

Glenn Killinger. back can be tackled, hammered, and constantly battered, and have the brain function properly. Harvard depends on the quarter back for strategj-. For that reason the Crimson field generals are kept out of the scrimmage as much as possible. In the games between the so-called "Big Three," O'Hearn of Yale and Lou rle of Princeton made mis-takes of judgment, probably because they had to do a great amount of offensive work. Buell of Harvard, on the other hand, had no such trouble, as he was seldom in the scrimmage. At Penn State. Killinger, who di rected the team play, stood out as the greatest running back of the year. He was constantly used on the offensive. Both teams did pretty well. AID ATHLETES BY PICTURES Movements Shown on Screen by Slow Motion Attachment Analyzed and Then Copied. University of Missouri athletes of the future will be given valuable training by means of motion pictures in just the proper way to top a hurdle or stop a charging linesman, box an end or slide into second. If plans be- Insr formulated by the athletic depart ment of the university are carried Into effect. A motion picture camera recently presented to the university by alumni and local business men Is to be fitted with a slow-motion attachment which will make it possible to project the movements of an athlete on the screen very slowly so that they may be an alyzed and copied by others, it was explained. By filming the work of athletes who develop ability beyond the average, the department here expects to build up a library covering every phase of major sport.' ':.

He has pitched in several leagues since he started his career in 1010, and always has been a front runner. It is some tribute to his intelligence that after, all these years, and with his arm losing much of its cunning, he can make such a record as he has made. It's the old story, says Martina, "you don't le:irn to pitch until your arm is gone." ,-tJ FORWARD PASS WILL STICK, SAYS WARNER Good Defense Against Overhead Play Is Not Possible. Glenn S. Warner says that the for ward pass will continue to be one of the big features of football. What Is more, Warner says that we will never see the day when football coaches will develop an adequate defense to guard against the forward pass, for a good defense against the overhead Is not within the range of gridiron possibil ity, according to Warner.
