Georgetown Eleven to Get Three-Days' Period of Quiet
Preparatory to Facing Carlisle on
That Georgetown will bend every ef
fort In preparation for the Indians when
the teams meet on October X, la noted
from the announcement made today that
the men selected to take part In that
contest will be taken away for a three
day period before the game.
The coaches and captain have coma
to the conclusion that perfect rest and
quiet wbqre the finer details can be
studied over and the finishing touches
can bo Riven, will best be brought home
to the men where they are away from
all other Influences.
It Is Intended to take the men to soma
nearby town, where good food can bo
obtained und perfect rest and quiet will
be thu order. Here It will be possible
to go over all the details which havo
been taught, and to point up the team
for the big contest.
Georgetown is more than anxious to
win from the Indians. This game Is the
objectlva point of the campaign, and the
schedule has been laid out with a nicety
which so fur has worked to advantage.
All of the couches have been satlslled
with the showing to date, und the win
against Washington and Lee Saturday
f rovel conclusively that the team Is at
ast rounding Into shape.
It Ih rumored- that Hill Hollenback and
Bob Torrey, former University of Penn
sylvania football players, and Intimate
friends of Eddie Dennis, will be on hand
to lend asslstanco to the linemen before
the Indian game. Torrey und Hollen
back have coached teams which have
been successful In coping with the
Indians' style of play, and will material
ly aid the Blue and Dray.
In addition to the present coaching
staff It Is more than likely that several
former Georgetown stars will be on
hand before the Carlisle game to put
In several days' work with the squad.
The ten-day period between the game
with Carolina A. and M. und the Indian
game will bo put In In hurd work, with
every reason for success.
Georgetown Is not discounting the
strength of the Indians In the least and
Is more than anxious to wipe out the
defeat of last season. Firm In the be
lief that the team will be bi ought to
the point where It can successfully de
fend Its title us All South Atlantic
champion again this season, the coaches
are more than anxious to round out
the season without the loss ol a single
em tent.
Light practlco will be In order today
at the Hilltop In preparation for the
Carolina A. and M. game, which takci
place at Raleigh, N. C, on Thursday.
All of the men with the execution of
Van Brockltn came out of the Washing
ton and Lee game In good shape.
Tomotrow the team will have Its onlv
scrimmage of the week, and Wednesday
night the squad will Icavu In a special
car for Raltlgh. Carolina A. and M.
Is coached by Eddie Greene, the former
Penn star, and Is sure to present a
strong team, although Green had but
five regulars at the start of the season.
The return of Dove White to the line,
up has bolstered the team on both of
fense anil defense. Lnst year White
was accounted the best defensive full
back In the South, his backing line
wing the feutuie of every Hilltop con
tort. In the Interferenf n ho tn nhln trt
pavo tho no.) foi the runner to reel off
long gains, and, with Jim Dunn nnd
AMilto In shape the hackflold, which has
worried the roaches not a little, will be
in gooii lorm.
Yale Fears Game With
Army Next Saturday
NEW HAVEN. Conn., Oct. H.-Satur-day's
contest vvlth the Army eleven
Is occupying the attention of tho Ell
couches this week, and the greatest
fears are entertained V-st tho soldiers

The Vali) line Is still sluggish and
sleepy, but this will bo speeded up this
week to equal thu hurricane attack of
the backfleld The bucks are phuln,?
good fuotbull, and I-'lynn, Phllbln,
Spalding, and Cornell will lo the quar

To aid In coaching the forwards, Ar
thur Howe, field coach, has sent for
"Ted" Lilly, Ned Glass, Hay Blglow,
Gobs and Paige. Jack Field Is also ex
pected to assist tho backtleld coaching.
"The chief criticism I have to make
of Yalo In tho Lafayette game." said
Coach Howe today, "Is the Inability to
understand the signals. Cornell was all
right, but the backs and forwards were
lost the moment he started his signals.
This must be remedied before the Army
game or It will be fatal."
Princeton Preparing

PRINCETON. N. J., Oct. 14. Prince

HT. LOUIS, Mo., Oct. 14. The Cardin

fans In the Sunday game for the city
championship, and tho contest will con

deserved a shut-out. That he did not

District National Bauk Building.
Looking at the many bitter disap
pointments given tho followers of the
hitherto strong elevens by so-called
smaller teams thus far this season. In
dications ape that this Is going to be
a great year for tho little fellows, and
It Is chiefly because more liberties with
the forward pass have been granted
under the rules and that extra down Is
Using the ssme reasons, the coming
'battles between the big fellows Yale,
Harvard, Princeton, Dartmouth, Penn
sylvania, Brown, ets. should be far
more thrilling than those of last sea
son, and fewer no-score games should
be the rule.
It goes without saying that the three
downs took considerable from the at
tack last yrar. Coaches devoted all
their attention to tho defense, trusting
to chance to provide opportunities for
scoring. To this, more than to anything
else, did Princeton credit Its champion
ship. Hammering at the defenso from
ono season's end to the other, the Tigers
were Impregnable, and tn Sam Whlto
they possessed the man fated to bo al
was where he should be when some
thing might happen of benefit to his
Much Better Game.
It Is n much better game, this year
than It was In 1911. Perhaps the victor
In the Yale-Harvard battle will be de
cided, though neither side has managed
to score In tho last two years. In
deed, It is a good bet that the defeated
eleven will run up a few points for It
self, something that has not happened
since 1EM, when Harvard was beaten
12 to 4.
The extra down and tho freedom In
the use of the forwnnl pass has laid
stress rather on tho attack than on the
defense. Princeton, with an accepted
weak line. Is running up high scores
through the magnificent work of a
backfleld composed of sprinters. Sure
ly this same backfleld should do some
thing against Harvard, Dartmouth, and
Dartmouth has surprised the fol
lowers of football with the strength of
ncr uuu. cutuniay me ureen rolled
up 55 points against Vermont, the
highest In the history of the clashes
between these two universities. The
backs of the Hanoverians ahnnlH rn.
der good accounts of themselves In tho
uig games to come.
At Yale Likewise.
At Yalo It la the same Btory. Tho
dally scrimmages generally see several
touchdowns, where laBt season saw
both elevens battling In vain to ad
vance the ball. Two years ago Fred
Daly led a Yale eleven upon tho Held
trained merely to stop the heavy Har
vard attack. They did that, and did It
well, but when the opportunity came
for Yale to take advantage of Its work,
no attack was visible to the naked eye.
The football followers, after watchfnir
Kllpattick take that forward pass over
the line at Princeton, Imagined that
Yale had an effective attack, but It
failed Ignobly In the Harvard game a
week later. The premium was upon the
defense and Yale knew it. They couldn't
win rrom iiarvara, dui tney could Keep
Harvard from winning, and did.
Pennsylvania, even after Its defeat
by the heavy Swarthmore eleven. Is
confident of Its attack. Indeed, but for
fumbles the Red and Bluo would have
scored at least two touchdowns nfter
getting the leather to Swarthmore's 2
yard line.
Have Great Backfleld.
Only once has tho famous Carlisle
backfleld been stopped. Washington
and Jefferson, catching the redskins out
of condition, held them to a no-score
tie. but In every other game thus far
Thorpe and Areas and Welch and Pow
ell have run wild. Speedy runs Inside
of the ends, dazzling forward passes to
alert runners and good, otd-fasnloned
line plunging mark tho work of the
Carlisle, eleven. Little attention Is paid
to tho defenso, so much depends upon
the attack under tho new rules.
Everywhere the story Is the same, the
tale of the offense conquering the de
fense. Football has returned to those
other days when championships were
decided on the gridiron and not left to
the experts In the Sunday papers. Yet
In all this return to old football, the
Injury list seems absent. The close,
pllc-drtving plas that once marked the
work of the big elevens, Is gone. No
more is a Byrne killed stopping a
tackle's back play. That ever-present
forward pass spoils all that. The onslde
kick never was a success, except for
Eddli Harlan and Paul Veeder, But
many can hurl an accurate forward
pass, and this serves to keep loose and
pliant the defense of even the biggest
If the rules have come close to mak
ing football a monotonous struggle be
tween the 25-yard lines, thev have also
made It a thrilling spectacle running
even behind the goal posts, and the
champion of 1012 on the Eastern grldlinn
should be determined on the field, with

Old Dominion Boys Hoping for Victory Despite Poor
Showing Against Hampden-Sidney Eleven
Last Saturday.
Vlrglnla clashes with the University of
South Carolina' eleven today on Lam
beth Field, and, despite the poor work
of tho Orange and Blue Saturday
against Hampden-Sidney, scoring but a
single touchdown and field goal, tho
best of hopes are held that victory will
perch upon the banners of Virginia,
South Carolina had a struggle to win
from Wake Forest, 7 to 2, and this
encourages the local players.
Two games are on Urn schedule here
for this week, as Virginia Military In
stitute comcB here Saturday with one
of the best teams It has had In the
history of football there. Last season
the cadets threw a scare Into the
cohorts of the Orange and Blue by
scoring the first touchdown, but Vir
ginia rolled up twenty-two points be
fore the final whistle blew,
V. M. I. found no trouble winning
from Hampden-Sidney. 27 to 0, a week
or so ago, white Virginia just managed
to make ten against the same eleven.
Saturday the cadets defeated tho strong
Gallaudet team from Washlntgon, 26 to
6. Thus It will be seen that they have
a chance of winning from Virginia.
Changes Necessary.
Radical changes must be made In the
Virginia eleven to bring victories In tho
clashes with Vanderbilt and George
town, both of which have excellent
teams this season. For three quarters
little Hampden-Sidney held Virginia
scoreless. Suclt a weak attack will
prove disastrous against the powerful
forwards of Vanderbilt and Georgetown.
Tho coaches aro much worried, too,
over tho situation.
"Looking at tho poor work of tho
tetm," says Coach Rice Warren, "1
should say that no one man Is at fault.
Perhaps It Is owing to the extremely
warm weather. Last year on the same
date Bt, John's held us to a single
tuuehdown, and yet tho team came
through all right later on."
Virginia's backfleld seemed loose as
ashes Saturday, and this did not es
cupe the keen eyes of two scouts In
tho Btands. Jimmy Driver, a former
star halfback and now coach nt South
Cirollna, and an unknown expert from
Lexington viewed tho work of tho Vir
ginia eleven and smiled broadl).
Blanchard a Failure.
Big Blanchard has proved a decided
failure at fullback, and will very likely
be shifted to his old position, at tackle.
His work Saturday was wretched. Ed
Flnlay, the veteran end, was circled
several times by the fleot-footed backs
of Hampden-Sydney.
The line was outplayed by Its lighter
epponent, too, another cause of worry
to the coaches. The forwards seldom
got the Jump and were always caught
high In the air by the driving attack
of the Hampden-Sidney backs.

pectcd to pipy again for a couple of
weks. His absence Is certain to be
felt, for the team quickened lta paco
noticeably Saturday while he was di
recting Us attack.
Vigilants Confident
Of Retaining Title
Joe OllvcH. manager of the Vigilants'
Independent football team, which last
year won the championship of the Dis
trict, Is confident that his team will
again annex the Utle following yestei
day's dafeat of the Fort Washington
eleven by a 43-to-O score.
The Vigilants wero able to decisively
defeat a heavier team, owing to the
sensational work of "Cuppy" Farmer.
McKenzle, and Parker. Tho Vigilants
made their gains on long end runs, and
held, the Fort Washington team so that
It was able to make but two. first
downs during the game.
