Devore, Last Year's All

in Syracuse Game.
WE8T POINT. Nov. 20. The Army
team will piltahe finishing- touches to
Its plays' to be used against the Navy
on Saturday In two more hard practice
sessions thlH week. The cadets were
rested yesterday after their nurd battle
against Syracuse last Saturduy. Tho
coaches sent all hands to the gym.

by Head Coach Ernest Graves, Illus

The team came out of Vlie game
with Syracuse In excellent condition.
Morkoe Is the only real cripple. Ha

Devore has returned to his true form.

Is himself once more. He was ull over
the field and In every pluy. Weyand's
game at guard was especially gratify
ing, and the big fellow has clinched
his title to tho position.
The other guard position will be hotly
contested for this week between Hus
ton, Herrlck and Jones, ull aggressive
men. Kcyea' work at fullback In the
Hyrncuso game was a revelation. His
punting was tho best done by any
Army back this season, aid he has
without doubt displaced Hobbs as the
Army's kicker. Keycs Is the best drop
kicker the Army ever had, and as a
lino smashing back has few equals.

Arcade Indoor Baseball
Team Tackles Nationals
Dick Robertson and Joe Olebcl, the

figure In an Indoor basnbull gume at the
Arcade tonight. O'pbcl will catch Buck

Robertson and Munch, for the Arcade
lAum will endeavor to land tho rubber
game of the series each team having
won a game, ine game is scneuieu to
start at o'clock.
We have only a few brief suggestions to slip the eminent assemblage
composing the National League. They follow In order:
1. Indorse Prof. Fogel, the Philadelphia pot-pourri, and thereby admit
his charges were true.
2. Shoot an ovation and a rising vote'of thanks to C. Webb Murphy,
the Chicago chantlcler, In behalf ot his untiring efforts to lift baseball to
a higher plane.
3. Offer a silver loving cup, suitably engraven, to the magnate who
can defame his own league and the game in the worst possible manner.
4. Frame up a standing platform of political Intrigue and trickery
and hang all fans and successful managers in effigy.
After which said magnates can lay plans to sell their ball parks for so
much junk about two years hence and apply for admission Into some class
D circuit.
The Fogel Case, Etc.
It is no longer a case of the National League vs. Fogel, but a case ot
tho National League vs. clean baseball.
If the older circuit cares to stand for Fogel, Murphy, and the like
cares to Indorse charges of crookedness, contract breaking, and continual
bickering, there's no one to prevent It committing hari-kari at the earliest
moment For if tho present program continues the fanatics who still have
something to say about It all at the box office, will frame a thicker cluster
ot boobs than we figure them to be it they trail with such an organization
much further along the trail.
Tho game should receive greater protection from the magnates than
from anyone else. They are In position to do the game greater good and
have more coin at stake than anyone else. Wherefore we. suggest three
lusty cheers for Messrs. Fogel and Murphy, the Uplift Kids and the last
words in clean-cut sportsmansnip,

The members of tho second class who

Brown, right guard; and Gilchrist, right

at left guard, and either Ralston or

these are members of the second class.

firactlce waa secret and one of Its fea

field goals have heietofore been limited
to Brown's place kicking, but It Is prob

chance to show what he can do In the
