Promising Quarterback Will Return to Blue and Gray Gridiron This Week
THE WASHINGTON TIMES, MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1911.
MAGNER TO RETURN;
GEORGETOWN GLAD
St. Louis Athlete Made Favorable Impression at Quarter
back Before Being Called Home Hilltop Foot
ball Prospects Are Bright.
By THOMAS KIRBY.
Georgetown's football situation grew
ven brighter today when Capt. Vincent
Dalley received a telegram from young
Magner saying that he has left his
home In St. Louis and will be at
Georgetown Field tomorrow.
Magner, who Vomes from St. Louis
high school, made a most favorable
impression In the early practice at
ouarterback, but the sudden Illness of
i his father compelled him to return to
'Missouri. He has been home for near
ily a week and during that time the
health of his father has Improved to
such an extent that he considers it safe
to return to resume his course.
It was reported that Magner would
withdraw from the university to tak.o
'up his father's business, so his return
Is a source of gratification to the foot
ball authorities.

The snapping and spinning of inflated
spheroids on hundreds of gridirons on
i&aturday, marked the Inauguration of
the regular gridiron campaign of 1911.
While there were a irn- scattered
games a week before, it was really oil
last Saturday that practically all of the
most representative teams got under
way, and gave their followers an op
portunity to gauge the probable strength
of the elevens.
The principal Interest in Wabhington
was centered on Georgetown Field,
iwhere the university squad met the teani
'from the Seaman Gunners' School, ani
in forty minutes of actual play, the
.Blue and Gray missed scoring a point
a minute bv the narrowest posslblo
margin a lone point. Two dozen dif
ferent men had p'aces in the George
town line-up during the course of the
'whole game, and the contest . was ex
actly what It was arranged for a test
If or the candidates upon whom,, will bo
placed dependence when the intercol
legiate season gets uraer way.
The game Justified, in a way, the
statements made in these columns when
the squad first reported, that Gcorgo
town has no good reason for apprehen
sion over the outlook for a winning
eleven.
Having had but two weeks of prac
tice it was not surprising that the heat
should greatly interfere with the work
of the men on the heights, but after
they once caught their stride, after half
of the playing time had expired, they
showed flashes of strength that should
carry them through many a grueling
match later on.
No matter how discouraging may be
reports and how recurrent the an
nouncement of an indigo hue, the cold
fact remains that the best team George
town can put on the neld today is one
of the heaviest, if not the heaviest univer
sity eleven in the United States today.
The men are possessed of a good rudi
mentary training Everyone upon whom
reliance is belnc placed has had one
or more years of experwlence In collego
-iootball. and the whole combination
chmilrl daronn Intn a most lmoresslve I
and dnadlv machine.
Teams on the Georgetown schedule
bave good reason to fear.
Barring Pennsylvania and Lafayette,
most of the big college teams won their
frames on Saturday without any great
amount of trouble.
Against small but stubborn Holy
Cross, Yale, without th use of any
modern plays, showed that the material
at New Haven is coming along satis-
factorily, while at Cambridge, Percy
Houghton followed out his usual policy
sif making no particular effort to run
up a score on Bates, but used the
match in order to increase the general
efficiency of the Individual players.
Stevens Institute, while fighting hard,
was unable to stop the long runs of
Princeton, and the Tigers won. What
the Nasrau linemen will do In the later
games cannot be figured, as the heat
at Princeton was most depressing to
the big forwards, but if Saturday's
game can be taken as a criterion that
backfleld will be one of the sensations
of the year. Marvelously fast, and
headed by that scintillating Tol Pen
dleton, who received his gridiron school
ing at Episcopal High School, near
Alexandria, Princeton has a quartet
that will command respect from any
opponent.

one.
In fact, not for several years has
thera been the splendid co-operation of
graduates at New Havon, which was so
apparent In the years when Yale's so
railed "system"' was building Itself up.
Recently all has not been peace be
tween Mr. Camp and more recent New
Haven football products aspiring to
make good with their own way of dolni,
things. However, what misunderstandings
there were last fall apparently have
fcpen forc-otten in the effort of all hands
to get together for this campaign. Yalo
has not scored a touchdown on Harvard
since 1907, and the Princeton game
have not seen the Yale outfit with the
"punch" Yale football tradition de
manded. Captain Howe, himself one of the
keenest young men who has recently
been at the head of Yalo football, has
mado a very happy choice In his selec
tion of his field coach. Field, and his
closest assistants, KIstler, who devel
oped so beautifully as a full back, and
Morris, who was one of the best cen
ters of the year In 1910.
Mr Camp, acting as adviser, has
hern in touch with everv move that
has bern made on Yale field this fall
and the pl.in for special conchlng in
cludes the bi-lncing back to New Haven
of the cream of Yale's coaching talent.

much adverse crltirHm. Also, Mr Camp
was not on the lob as usual, and the
season for awhile was at sixes and
sevens because Coach Cov and Captain
Dalv allowed some of the prerogatives
to i slip awav from them.

Princeton Offensive
Work Noticeably Weak
PRINCETON, N. J., Oct. 2. The past
week's football practice at Princeton
has seen the start of ihe training table
which began on Wednesday with the
following fifteen men: Captain HarJ,
Sawyer, McCormick, McLean, Wlnants
and White, seniors; Bluethenthal. Dun
lap, Penfleld, Pendleton, Wight and
Wilson, Juniors; and Baker, De Witt,
and Vaughn, 6opohmores.
The past week has been the first full
week of scrimmage, but the work as a
whole has been far from encouraging.
The offensive work In particular has
been noticeably week, due In great part
to the Inability of the line to afford
the backs any sort of interference. The
forwards are slow In getting started
and fail to get Into the plays with the
proper spirit. This defect is even more
noticeable when the varsity has the
ball near the scrubs' goal line, and
when direct plunging would De most
profitable the line men are unable to
do their share of the work.
This unexpected weakness may prove
especially costly for the Orange and
Black this year, as the backs are light
even for the Tigers, and without a
strong interference will be unable to
make headway against the heavier elev
ens, such as Harvard and Yale.
Princeton has not had a line plunging
back of first-rate caliber since the days
of Jim McCormick. back in 1907. and
the efficiency of an eleven this year Is
largely dependent upon the possession
of a heavy backfleld man who not only
can hit the line hard, but can throw
off tacklers and keep going.

BALTIMORE, Oct. 2. H. Merle Webb,
sporting the silks of the Cross Country
Club, earned himself much glory and a
new record for the 45-mlle run from The
Washington limes building to the
News office yesterday by completing the
distance apparently as fresh when ho
started, in 6 hours 12 minutes and 10
seconds actual running time. The form

Daniel K. Younger, another winged C
representative, was the other starter
with A ebb, and, although striving man
fully to keep pace witn his comrade,
was forced to drop back a bit, but fin
ished In fair shape eight minutes and
twenty seconds back of the winner..
Younger assumed the lea i aner pass
ing Laurel, and against the advice of
the attendants. Younger cut out too
fast a clln. Webb was taking the ad
vice, with the result that when the real
test came the last ten miles ho was
the stionger of the two. Younger went
to pieces toward the end, and would not
make any greater effort to get In the
real running again.
Tho time of the leader at various
points along the route was as follows:

matfiial for hurdle races and the relay
team.
Recent additions to the squad nro

Tomorrow the cross-country men will
dig their spikes- Into the turf for the
first lime this year, and thereafter will
make the circuit three times a week
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, at
5 o'clock. All of the distance men, num

Will Challenge If Allowed to
Race Under Rules of New
York Yacht Club.
LONDON, Oct. 2. Sir Thomas Llpton,
interviewed regarding reports cabled
from America that many yacht clubs in
the United States favored changing the
cup conditions In order that inter
national races can be conducted accord
ing to the universal rules, said:
"I felt sure that when Americans
knew the facts they would put things
straight. It Is no fault of mlno that
thero has been no challenge from his
side. I see from cables that Commodore
Massie, of Hhode Island, and other im
portant yachtsman want the New York
Yacht Club to use the 'golden bridge,
which provides for conditions to be ar
ranged by mutual onscnt. I never
could believe that Ameilcan sportsmen
wanted to keep the cup on a mere tech
nicality. I am more than pleased to sec
that the yacht club members are of
the same opinion.
"All I ask Is to race under the New
Yoik Yacht Club's own rules. As I have
said before, what Is good for them is
good enough for me. The minute I hear
that the New York club is willing to
meet me under those conditions I will
challenge once more in the hope of win
ning the cup.
"Everv yachtsman In America knows
there Is nothing that would stimulate
the sport so much as another Interna
tional race. Even if the race were un
der universal rule I could not say that I
had been n-Ken an equal chance. Under
tho old condition there Is no question
of equal chances. It Is simply a matter
of building freak boats that are of no
use after the race and only fit for tho
scrap heap. I have always found Amer
icans hard to beat and ever generous,
but never unfair and always willing to
give me a fair show. That is all I ask
now."

LAUREL, Md., Oct. 2. The new rac
ing venture at Laurel starts Its thirty
day meeting- this afternoon with, an
excellent program of six races, the
Maryland State Fair Handicap calling
for S2.500 added, being the feature.
Unfortunately, these events will have
to be run off over a slow track render
ed doubly slow by the rainfall of last
night. This circumstance will, un
doubtedly, cause many scratches, and
will give the handlcappers a puzzling
task to locate the winners.
Speculators, Indeed, will be treading
on dangerous ground all through the
meeting, and at times discretion will be
the better part of valor. The new
track must necessarily be slow, and
the horses with a known fondness for
heavy going are the ones .to be con
sidered. The first race this afternoon has six
entries, but there may be scratches
which will eliminate some of the likely
candidates.
If they should all go Shannon and
uesom would seem to stana out witn
Baby Wolf having a look In.
Royal Onyx Has a Chance.
Should there be one or two scratches
Ernest Utterback's old "bush" cham
pion. Royal Onyx, will be very danger
ous. This old fellow Is in great shape
Just cow, and the track will be Just to
his liking.
The second race, at six furlongs, has
fifteen three-vear-olds entered of rather
a cheap order. This event Is very open,
a shake bag affair in fact, and most
any one of the bunch can win.
Moncrelf and Fort Worth, perhaps,
are as good as anything here. Smirk
has a high turn of speed, but is apt
to chuck it up when pressed. Alto
gether this looks like a good race to
let alone.
The fourth race Is the big $2,300 handi
cap with a splendid list of entries, tak
ing in borne of the best horses now in
training. Two thousand rive hundred
dollar purses are very scarce nowa
days, and, naturally, owners will strain
a point to get a shot at this one.
Some of the owners, however, with
valuablo stake horses may not deem
It advisable to tako a chance over
a bad track, and scratches are liable
to cut the list of starters down.
The race is exceedingly open, as all
handicaps should be. and it looks
something like taking a shot at the
moon to call the winner.
Golden Castle Looks Good.
A big bunch of cheap platers Is
carded In the fifth race, and any one
of them, almost, has a chance to win.
Golden Castle, a bushwhacker, is in
great form Just now and looks as
good as anything In the race.. Syzygy,
iJjrvCiAAAJL
at
which has Bhown excellent form In
Canada, may be a contender. Ral Parr's
Gay Deceiver Is entered and has been
working well.
He may bear watching. Hibernica
and Joe Galtens also have a look in.
Some fair platers are entered In the
last race. Michael Angelo, a recent
winner at Toronto, looks good here.
The going will suit- Dull Care. There
has been a tip of many moons stand
ing on Joe Kenyon, and this may be
the spot where It will materialize.
Laurel was a very busy place yes
terday. Horses were arriving all day
and kept the superintendent busy
putting them away. Eight carloads
got in from Toronto and several more
from New York.
Carpenters Hustling All Day.
Carpenters and laborers were hus
tling every minute of the day getting"
the plant In, shape for the opening,
and work will be kept up to tho very
moment when the bugle blows for the
first race this afternoon.
Mr. Brown had a big force at work
on the track and had hoped it would
bo In presentable 3hape by the time
the first race was called. The rain
fall, however, has Interfered some
what with his plans In that respect.
The Beverwyck stable, owned by
Frank Nolan, df Albany, which is
booked for Laurel and Plmllco, will
be sold under the hammer, October
1 4, at Plmllco. Some pretty clever per
