Scrimmage Work Ends in To
day's Contest and Signal
Drill Starts Tomorrow.
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
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.
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
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

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. . ,
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
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

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.

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

Suffragist Convention
The women voters' convention held In

cessful events of tho kind ever held by
the Congressional Union for Woman Suf
frage, according to Miss Elsie Hill, who,
having just returned from San Fran
cisco, spoke last night at a suffrage
meeting at 1420 F street northwest.
More than 700 women wore present on
the opening banquet, said Miss Hill, and
nil were filled with enthusiasm and
seenjed confident that the fight for a
suffrage amendment to the constitution
was making rapid progress. Miss Hill
was present only at the opening day of
the convention, she having to return to
Washington In time to resume her duties
as teacher in the Central High School.
