THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22. 1915.
11 y MARYLAND AGGIES E FIRST WORK DAY Scrimmage Work Ends in To day's Contest and Signal Drill Starts Tomorrow. O'CONNOR ATTRACTS NOTICE Exendine Deollnes to Name Line-up to Meet Princeton. To Use Many Substitutes. Georgetown today for the first time this season faces a real op ponent. The Marylnnd Aggies are .scheduled to battle tlte Hilltoppers in a scrimmage .that will be hard fought from beginning to end. Exen iline's lads will complete their scrim mage work today and will hold only signal and kicking drills until they take the field at Princeton Saturday afternoon for their first contest of the campaign that will close in St. I.ouis on Thanksgiving Day. The College Park team is shaping up very well this fall and Coach Byrd's lads are certain to offer real opposi tion to the Blue and Gray battalion. Though Coach Exendlne declines , to name Ills llno-up that will start Hie Princeton gnmf, It is expected that It will bo about an follows. Cusack, left end; Ward, left tuckle; O'Connor, loft Kuard! McCarthy, center; Captain Bar ion, rlfjht (jimrd; Oormley, right tackle: Mahluni, iitht in.fl; Moloney, quarter back; Gllroy, loft halfback; Wall, right hallback; Jlcinpsey. lullbaqk. Never theless, If only for th'i experience, many Mibstltutos aie urn to bo Been In the line-up at Princeton, and the competi tion is so strenuous at the Hilltop that porr.o of the.so first string men may not come out of that clah with the Tigers as varsity players. For practically ev ery position on the team there are three to five lads bnttllns dally. This earnestness has never been ficen before at Georgetown, and it leade Coach Ex endine to hope tor the best. It Is Ex pected that four, elevens will be In uni form next week, and no really Impos sible players have yet been discovered in the squad. The remarkable performance of Dan. O'Connor, the biff Runrd from Uoaton College nrep, has been the teatUre of the Hilltoppers' work this past week. He Is now puttlnp; i'p such a scrap that It is considered likely that he will start the Princeton contest at left guard. Prank Greeh was supposed to have It cinched, but when he got up against the Bostonian ho found his hands full. The struggle It) still going on In .the dally practice at the Hilltop, with O'Connor having a slight lead over the former Lehigh man. ' Tho scrimmaging yesterday lasted forty minutes, with the varsity winning, 28 to 6. The most encouraging perform ance was the rtblllty of the varsity backs to liolil tne ball and gam consistently iignlusl the bitterest kind of defensive play rby the sorulp. Malone and Mo Nnmara, fighting for the quarterback's berth, played great football. Keal fronln, last year's vnrslty end, scored tho scrubs' touchdown, taking a for waid pass and passing the line. Demp ov kicked all four of the varsity's goals f i om touchdown. "Bunny" Corcoran has reported and will be a candidate for end. He looked very promising last season, particularly ax n kicker. He has put on some moie veight this fall and may soon be In tho tunning. Orland Lelghty lias recovered from his .ittack of charleyhoise and Is again In rnlform. He will probably get ipto the Princeton game for a while behind the Georgetown line. Frank Greer, former star at Eastern High School, will probably to played at -nd for C. U. this wason. In the dally woikoutu the big fellow Is showing up In pood style on the wing, his size and hpeed being particularly valuable In the smashing stvle of piny being taught the Black and Red tquad. Manager Knvanaugh Is seeking to over come the lack of a scinb eleven by book ing various high school teams for scrim mage drills, but In another week It is thought that there will be at least two elevens in uniform at Brookland. The veterans are beginning to arrive at College Park and the Maryland Ag gies are working hard for their open ing game. Spccr, former Virginia star, is In uniform and Oberlln. Cogglns and Altchlson, from last year's team, have leported. Berry and McKlnney, from Central High, and Smith. Baltimore Polytechnic's 1914 quarterback, are work ing out with tho squad. LOWEWILUBATTLE T Tommy Lows, Washington's crack lightweight, will face one of the toughest opponents of his long ring career when he steps Into the rlnK at Ardmore, September 30, to go fif teen rounds with Willie Jones, of Brooklyn. N, Y. Jones has battled on even terniH with Abe Attell, former featherweight champion; Willie Ititchle, foimer world's lightweight champion: Johnny Dundee, out! of the lightweight contenders; Frunklo Cal lahan and Johnny Griffiths, Akron's Ftar lightweight. Lowe will have his hands full when he starts in with Jones. Iiowo has been training lightly for three weeks and today blurted In to work In earnest for his coming bout with Jones. He expects to be In first class condition when ho enters the ring. The Washington lad Is always In fair shape and needs but little ex tin grinding" to bo ready. Three preliminaries and a seml wlndup will complete the card for tho turning show. Kleinert Bpck Again With Cornell Eleven ITHACA, N. Y Sept. 22. Tho Cornell football nractlco developed into the harden scrimmage of tho year yester day when the varsity scored four touch downs, holding the scrubs scoreless. Barrett and Collins made long runs, and their ability to pick holes In the scrub line was marvelous. Mike Kleinert. the husky fullbaok from Brooklyn, lolned the varsity, re placing Mueller. He shows up strong mid Is practically assured of a berth Hi fullback. IV GEORGETOWN STRONG OPPONEN Chinese Player MakingMMll TO OPEN Good W ith Prep Eleven T. Kai Liang Trying for End on Army and Navy Prep School Team and Coach Frank Newberry Is Impressed With His Efforts. . , By BRVAN MORSEJ. T. Kai Llnnp is the name of thf newest find at tle Army and Navy Preparatory Sshool. Coach Frank dewberry, the old Lafayette College star, has dug up what he thinks Jb h. live one in the young Chinese ath lete who is trying out for end on the Prep School football team. Liang has been in this country abput a year and to use Newberry's wotds, takes to athletics like a duck to water. The "Chink," bb they can him out Connecticut avenue way, is popular with the boys and Is making a strong bid for an end position. He never saw football played until he came out this fall, but in the few day's practice looks like a real player. Newberry Is enthusiastic over the showing made by the youngster. "I-lang appears to have the makings of a fin? athlete." eovs Newberry. "He In fast. qu)ck to learn and, while a trifle light, seems to he able to hold his own. Liang has already gotten to be a fairly good tennis player, and ho seems at home in almost every sport at which he has taken a hand." Coach Newberry has six veterans from last year's eleven In Bolton, Mil ler, Watters. Fleming, D. Foster, and Peterson. The squad has been out three days and twenty-four have reported for work. According to Newberry, there seems to be an abundance of material for a backflcld, but few stocky line man. Among the newcomers are Wicks, from the Hotchklss School; Weller, a Texan; fi. Smith, a New England schoolboy player; GUmartln, from Villa nova Prep: Masury, Black, Trench, Al vord, a local boy; Royal!, Ralph Lee, a former "Western boy; Sweeney, who was on the Central squad last year, and Rhorschach. The Army and Navy Preps have ar- Dartmouth Team Is Wanting for Stars Ghee, Crack Quarterback, Will Not Be With Big Green Football Team This Season Whit ney Is Also Absent. HANOVER, N. H.. Sept. 22. The i Dartmouth outlook Is in nowise brlgnt. The most brildknt stars of Its great 1914 eleven are gone, and Coach Frank Cav anaugh faces the husky job of building up an almbst new back field. Ghee, ranked as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the col lege game, is gone and no one who lifts come forward so far seems able to Jill even part of tho gap he left. Ghee was a wonderful all-round man, and Dart mouth will feel his loss more keenly than that of any other man or any other two. In fact. Whitney, the great halfback, Is on other absentee. He was ona of the heaviest scorers In football last year, a line smasher with few equals and a wonder at circling the ends. Curtis and MUrdock, who were his associates In performing back-field chores, also were graduated in Jun?. Cannon and Tuck, substitute halfbacks; Wlnshlp, Perry, Kllms, and Redfield, ends; Mllmaro, cen ter; Childs, guard, and Cuhllskey, sub stitute quarterback they, too, have gone forever from the Dartmouth line up. "When ono loies a galaxy of stars such as Dartmouth has lost, It surnly can bo considered a terrific blow," said Cnvanaugh. "However, what's gone Is gone. Our eyes are on the future. We have left enough seasoned mqn to form the framework for our 1915 eleven, and who knows but what a few df the youngsters will develop Into real stars before the season Is well under way.'" Spears, the ?AVpound guard of last vear, la back and sure of Ills old Job. Merrill, the other 1914 guard, probably will laiid the other guard position, al though he Is being forced, to battle for the honor by Colby a 1914 substitute, and Cooley, Noyes, and Hull, who have come up from last year's fresh man class. . ... A. McCaullffo, captain, and Pudrith. the l'RINCETON, Sept. 22-Coach Rush, of Princeton, was hard at work yester day trying to develop somo sort of a combination to send against George town on Baturday. For tho better half of an hour ho kopt his men out In tho driving morning rain nt dummy scrlm ninge, afld went at It again in the after noon, under more favorable weather conditions. The afternoon scrlmmago was1 by far the liveliest and hardest fought of the season, and lasted three quarters of nn hour. It was preceded by a short blocking practlco and gen eral work-out. No varsity selection has been inado as yet and nono has been attempted, but the coaohes undoubtedly will havo to settle on one combination after to day's practlco and work with that for better or worse. It looks at present as though Ullck will be Used at quar ter, although Ames has been running tho so-called varsity In all the recent scrlmntages. Ed Shea probably will bo utilized at half Insteafl of at end, which position ho played last year and dur ing his prop school days at Exeter, Billy Moore has shown up well and would surprise nobody by starting at the other half. Cyril Haas nnd Mathtasen appear to be the logical choices for fullback. On the line. Red Uennert appears to bo a fixture at cen ter, while llalsey, Bill Love nnd Lamb Heynlgor undouDtedly will alternate In the guard positions. Mnpl-ean and La trobo should be the starters at tackles.

Two of the lads, Baldwin and Brocttwell, have hod brothers at Eastern, who have made good In other years, and are more than anxious to make the eleven this year. Bill MnrDnnald, of Business, will be olit of the nnte for a while with n sprained wrist. Mar-Donald wa hurt in practice yerterday, but expects to be In the line-up shortly. . St. Alnarts will probably get an Inltln) Workout today when Coach Gcor(o Green txete a look at the material. Th St. Albans squad will probably he light this oaion Several of the veterans being lost by graduation. 1614 regulars, are certainties for the tackle positions. They have but fw equals In their particular department, Soutar, Cotton, and Hitchcock, substi tutes Inst year, and Tairnnt, Chrlsta frnu and Currier, sophomores, are the most prominent among tho substitute tackles. A new center must bo developed. Glle, the 1914 substitute, has been show ing up exceedingly well and sepmn a fixture In the varalty llno-up. Prpctor and Gustafson are the sophomoro can didates. They are a bit too green to merit varsity consideration. The fight for the end Jobs is a. hot one. with tho selection narrowing down to five men Ponder. Gibson. Rastman. Emery nnd York all substitutes In 1B1I. Henley and Dussosnlt havo shown 'ip best. Gerrlsh. who played a good camo as substitute halfback last year, and Thlel fcher. who "subbed" at full, probably will be regulars this year. However, onothor hus shown himself to be In the cluss with his lflll predecessor. Du hamel. who was second substitute full back last vear, may become first' "sub'' this vear. , ..... The selection of the other halfb.ii.lv will have to be mudo from among the youngsters. Montgomery, Cousens and Burnhum are the sophomoro aspirants, but all seem to need a lot of develop ing. Swltzcr. White and Holbrook. who were Ghee's understudies last year, are battling for the honor of becoming tho 1915 regular quarterback. Eddlo and Holbrook (brother of the other Hol brook) are tho sophomore entries !n tho flve-coinered frHcas. Nono of the quin tet Is In tho star class, but Swlter looks the best so far. "The line Isn't giving us any worry," said Cavanaugh, "but developing now ends arid a new back field that's tho trick that Is causing us a loss of a bit of sleep." YALE COACHES ARE AFTER IMPROVEMENT NEW HAVEN. Sept. 22.-Head Coach Hlnkey and his assistants expressed dissatisfaction with the work of tho Yale varaltv, second, and third teams after practlco at Yale Field yesterday.
