DOPESTERS ARE SILENT Individual Averages of Oppo nents Show That Teams Are Excellently Balanced. By KIRK C. MILLER. Two holidays in a row is Fonicthine that fceldom comes to even the most for tunate, much less a bowler, but that very - Iiedulc is belnp enacted this week in oar own little duckpin colony, for fol owing the bie Turkey Day celebration 'lie bowlers have in store for ihern to Ight a competition which is seldom qualed outside of an Arms -Navy came r the openinp of a baseball season to it: Palace vs. Y. M. C A., at Associa i on alleys, 8 p. m. This contest is particularly ittractive t this time because of the keen lace which those two clubs have been t'ur- .shins in the National Capital League f nd with only a narrow margin of one apie standing: between them they will lutch at each others throats tonight ntil one or the other hos been declared winner. Yes, that Palace-Y. M. C A. atch is the talk of the town, and while Moe" Goldberg- insists that the South- rn Railway-Merchant Transfer and storage match in the Commercial league s the more important, all of the sane 'Owlers know better, and flock to the oa&ement of 1736 G street, where the olg set will be disposed of amid the Vers and applauds of the myriad lol lowers of the entire league. Today the city is filled with all man ner of "inside dope" as to which team will get the long end of tonight's match which has attracted city-wide interest, iiit there is a tinge of doubt which dis olnrs all exclusive information as to a )pssibh winner, and the wisest of the ise are simply "laying off" being rat ified to await the actual figures as they 111 emanate from the "Y" building about '.3t tonight. There is a reason, and a well founded nt, too, for the experts to withhold their pinions. It is this ten of the most de fndable duckpin spillers of which our air city can boast are pitted in bloody attle in the competition tonight, ai.d t if reputation of each individual bowler s eucii that there is no sane man who i. in say that any one will outroll the I tiier. Tiit is why the wise ones arc so reluctant in speech regarding the big tames and their excuse is more than well grounded.

Who's Who JOHN Out at the Northeast Alleys, where tnat monster twelve-team league ..olds forth, they have been awaiting the time when wo would issue a jlletin treating on the prebideni of the circuit, so today we are going to uok into the duckpin career of President John Stanton, who also travels ider the alias of "Pop." BesiJcs handling that important executive post r the Northeasterners, "Pop" Stanton is an active member of the Waverly Athletic Club, which scintillates in fourth place of the N. E. tandings, and when that club does not demand his services, he occasion- lly rolls with the National Laundry quint, which is holding down the unner-up job in the Capital City loop. When Stanton accepted the head of the N. E. circuit, he was in no vay certain that he would be able to actually roll, but the importunings of his army of admirers out in H street finally brought him around to the usiness of showing up for every game in which the Waverlys rolled rid the season was about a quarter of the way completed when Stanton tally got into harness. He is a veritable idol for the many loyal duck umncrs who congregate at Jack Caswell's bowling emporium, and it is 'argely through Stanton's graciousness in undertaking to run the league, that the Northeastern Duckpin League is today the biggest and most Asouxishing colony of the half hundred local organizations. i n 1. 1 i -"7jf i ym's . ra . n r r r-irn rtui 1 1 -.z v-- ....-..,-.. - ..-.. i--ii i T Five Birds Devoured on Thanks- giving Day by Families of Commercial Alley Pinners.

The birds were the prizes hung up by Manager .Terman. of the Commercial allevs, in his turkey tournament, and the bowlers mentipned above finished high in a roll-off which included the twenty best bowlers In a qualifying process which started ten days ago. One of the vagaries of the turkey tournament lies In the fact that Zier, the last man to roll, finished with the best mark. 342, for the three games which he contributed in the roll-off. Zier is of the class known as "tran sient bowlers," and does not belong to any league, nor does he follow any par ticular schedule in his bowling activi ties.

YS mm DUCKPIN BOWLERS Football Rules Men Should Leave Gridiron Code Without Change Game Requires No Tinkering This Winter, and Moguls Will Do Well to Keep Hands OffMere Rewriting Might Polish Off a Few Doubtful Places Now. When tlie lootball rules committee sets together this w:nter it probably "will have less work to do than has been demanded for several seasons. In general, the gridiron, game has been very satisfactory this fall and there is no demand for any alterations in the code. One or two points might bo simplified, but aside from this things are well enough as they are. It has been demonstrated this sea son that the rules permit of plenty of scoring- and that seems to be what everyone is asking. There were more big-score games and fewer scoreless ties this season than ever before. Not an important college team in the coun try, so far as records are available, es caped being scored upon, though it is Possibje that somo of the minor insti tutions have clean slates. Three East ern colleges. Harvard, West Point and Union, were not beaten, though the Army still has its biggest battle to fight and may meet defeat tomorrow. Harvard was twice tied by teams which caught her with a large number of sub stitutes in the line-up. Union played a light schedule and so the .soldiers have done up to date. The game of football as it now stands is all right and if the rules remain as they are long enough for coaches and players to develop all of its possibilities will keep getting better. Much progress has been made in the last two seasons. but there still is room for Improvement and greater things may be expected in the future. 1 borne critics maintain mat tne attacK has all the better of the going at present and that it would be advisable lo alter the rules to help the defense. This hard ly feems a Just criticism. There was a . time when the defense had things much 1 its own way and the natural result was I that the coaches devoted themselves very largely to the attaqk, results In carry ing anr passing the ball, there will be more attention paid to the defensive g.imo and an improvement in the de partment in sure to be noticed next year At least it will take another season or two to prove that there Is need of giv ing the team which has not the ball any aid. Yul" this season devoted her energies to building up an attack, and succeeded fairly wt,ll. The Blue had two chances in score against Harvard, and probably would have done so except for a fum ble on one occasion and a bad pass by the. center on the other. Hw team had u good hupply of ground-gaining plays, but its defense was inadequate, both f against tne passing anu. running jj.jii:j. iyxt vear ,t i; t0 1)e cxpectcrl that ti,e , ki; roaches will et right to work re- pairing the weak spots in their defense, and better results are to be expected. Michigan jovod that it is possible to build up a good, reliable protection against the forward pass. Opposing teams did vcrv little against the Maize and Blue by this play.

Chicago-Brooklyn Totals This g!ant twirW was mainly re sponsible for the three pennants won by t'ie CuliH in U0-7-8, although Miner Brown also did a great deal to help win game.-. Heulbach, however, by his wonderful work when lie won seventy three games and lost but nineteen in the three .""i-asons the Cubs were travel ing at a pennant winning gait proved he was a wonder. He was let go to Brooklyn during the 1913 seabon. and that was the only year Big Kd failed to win half his games. St'.ll, he fell shy only one vic tory of the .500 mark, having eight won and nine lost. Reulbach v. bile playing for the Notre Dame College team went out in the summer and played with Sedalla under the name of Luwson. He went to the Montpcllier .Mountain Stato league and played with the Fleshmann team, which was made up of leading college play ers. It was while with that team Chicago aecured him, and the next aea- cecded in working the toss three times for short gains, but M. A. C, Syra cuse, Pennsylvania, and Cornell had very small success with it. On the other hand the Wolverines showed that it could bo worked. Ex cept in the Harvard game, in which few passes wero tried ar.d none was successful, the play proved a bir ground gainer. The touchdown against Syra cuse, both of those against Cornell, sev eral against Pennsylvania, and the Held goal kicked against the Aggies were made possible by timely and accurate tcssing of the ball. One point in the rules which should be cleared up relates to tne saiety. There was a big argument In the Har- vard-Yale game over what many critics belicvo was a score made by Yale 1 through a Harvard man's falling on ai fumbled ball behind his own goal line. Section 16 of rule G goes extensively into the definition of a safely, but would be improved br the addition of a sentence expressly stipulating the ruling in a ! case like that of Saturday. There was considerable argument this season over the question of whether the ball Is dead when touched by a player who Is off-side, in me Harvard-Michigan game, the the Crim- son players several times touched a rolling ball when they were ort-sioe and the leather was awarded to the Wolver'nes on the spot. Many piayera and coaches believe and many officials will rule that In a case like this the ball Is not dead, but may be carried by the team to which it automatically belongs after being touched by an off s'de player of the other eleven. Rule nineteen only partly covers this point and should be made more explicit. In the case of such an offense happening inside the 10-yard line of the offended team, the ball goes as a touehback to the defenders, but there is nothing to show that it is not in play in other por tions of the lot. One rule that is badly needed but which probably will not be included In the code for a year or so is that num bering of the players be made com pulsory. The numbering system has had a thorough trial this season and everywheie has made a hit with the spectators There are crv few team which still decline to have their men Identified. Yale, Harvard, and Mich igan being among the number. Owing to the tremendous influence of tnesi three institutions, it will be a diffi cult matter to pass a rule that will force them to number their men. Sooner or later, however, the ath letic authorities will see the wisdom of civine he crowd a run for its money and lust as soon as they fall in line, the rule will be put in the book. Many m the 71.O00 persons who witnessed f'b year's Yale-Harvard battle 1H f strong boost rs for the numbering sys tem, and their efforts ought to l" a lone way toward bringing about the de sired reform. None of the big teams can be made to number its men be cause each Is a law unto itself, but evenlunllv all will be ulad to yield to public opinion and make this trill inn- concession.

The recent "Eastern visit of President Ban John son will probably result In a trade be tween the Yankees and the Athletics if the plan suggested by the American leader materializes. As it Is almost certain that Ray Caldwell will return to the ranks of the Yanks, an effort will be made to trade him to Connie Mack for "Rubo" Oldring, the veteran outfielder, and Catcher Jack Lapp. Although Caldwell flirted with the "Feds" last season after he left the Yankees, and accepted advance money, it is known that he did not sign a contract, although he promised to play with the Buffalo club of the new league next season. Caldwell has never sub mitted to the rules Of discipline of the local club, but as he is a valuable pit-'her, the American League is anx ious to keep him and put him under Connie Mack's care. Oldring is one of the players Mack wants to get rid of in the renovation of the former world's champions, along with ttender. Plank, and Coombs. It Is stated that there was a lack of harmony among the Athletics last sea son between the young and old players, and Mack has confided to his friends that lie would bring about harmony on his club even If he had to get a team of high school players.
