That Georgetown's varsity eleven will not lack for cheering support was shown early today when alumni from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and Connecticut began dropping off trains and ruBhing up to Nassau Inn to hobnob with the gridiron stars. There will be a cheering section of fully 200 when the Blue and Gray tramps upon the grass of Palmer stadium to open the JJ)15 football campaign with the Princeton Tigers. Charles R. Cox, graduate manager at Georgetown, was kept busy introducing old grad uates to the members of the varsity squad. The presence of so many alumni put a lot of spirit into the players and Coach Exendine was in clined to think that his team had a chance to defeat Princeton, though be declined to be so quoted. "Georgetown does not look for vic tory." said the famous Carlisle end of other days, "but we do think that we'll make Princeton hustle some before the last whistle. My -team la in good con dition and should put up a good game, especially the line. I've heard that Princeton's line waa ita weak plate. If that is bo, the Tiger backfield may have a lot of trouble making many gains against us. for our line is ready for any of them. However, one never can tell about a football game." Captain "Botchy" Barron was willing to admit that ho expected a stiff con test. " "Princeton is one of the beat elevens Jn th East," remarked the Georgetown captain and star right cuard." We have worked hard in order to make a respectablo showing here and wo'll go home to Washington contented if we do only that. A no score came, or a small score against us, will satisfv us." Captain Barron was not supported In his opinion by the alumni. They have been lilled up on dope to the effect that Princeton is weaker than usual and every graduate that came in was loudlv insistent that the Hllltoppera would surprise the football world by wlnnlnc from the Tigers, i After breakfast the entire George town sauad was taken for a long walk hy Coaches Exendine and O'Reilly. Fol lowing; the walk into the country the snuad returned and held a short signal practice The special formation taught the team for this contest with Princeton went off with a snap and dash that caused Exendine to smile. "If the backs will only do that against Princeton said he, "we may win They certainly look good. If they will show that samo a tuff this afternoon, Princeton will have to hustle na much tiEalnst us as they would against Yule or Harvard. r Coming from Washington on the train in a private car the Georgetown snuad was given a blackboard drill, with u quiz conducted by Coach Exendine. All l the regulars were found perfect In their Klgnals, and they seemed to know ex nctly what to do whenever Princeton showed Its forward pass. It is ex pected that the Tigers will show a for ward pass whenever it looks as if a chance had appeared for a score. Georgetown Will todav atnrt ovnlnEt Princeton with tho following line-up: c'usack, loft end; Ward, left tacklo; O Connor, left tackle; McCarthy, cen ter; Captain Barron, right guard; Oormley. right tackle; Mahlum. right lid. Maloney. quarterback: Gllroy. left halfback: Wall, right halfback, and Dempsey, fullback. There will bo a-number of changes in this hattle lino, however. Coach Exen dtno expects to have Corcoran, McGuIre, and Cropin at end, Gillespie and Rlor dnn at tackle, Green at guard, Fltx gerald at center, McNamara at quarter, and I,andreau, Brett, and Hanlon be hind the line.

Georgia Peach Minces No Words in Telling His Side of Rough Tactics Shown in Hub Red Sox Pitch ers Deliberately Trie d to "Bean" Him Daily. By TY COBB (World's Ail-Around Champion Player.) When my club went .to Boston to play the last series of the sea son with the Red Sox, we all knew that the American League champion ship and a chance at the world's sericB depended On the outcome if either team could win a decisive victory. We met the most unsportsy manlike reception from the newspapers, the ball club, and the fans a team has ever received since I have been in the big leagues as far bb L know. And this is supposed to be the "City of Kultur." I blame the whole, riot (and I am calling things by . their right names) on two baseball reporters on Boston papers. After the Boston Red Sox came home from, their last Western trip, these two reporters began stirring up the local fans against the Detroit club by articles in their papers, These reporters are not real newspaper men; but more fans and foll6wers of the Red Sox tharfH-eporters. These two men spoke to thousands through their papers each day and ran the stories that put the Tigers in bad with the Boston public. , Of course, the Tigers fought the series' hard when the Red Sox played in Detroit last, and the two Boston men covering the series for their papers at that time told things that were supposed to have occurred, Naturally, we did all we could then to win the series fairly and put the Red Sox pitchers up in the air. They were very import ant games. Once, I led the fans in cheering by walking behind the Red i Sox catcher and waving my bat. I have seen Tris Speaker do this with the "bugs" in center field, when at home, leading them in rpoting by waving his arms as a college cheer leader does. This is all part of baseball. RED SOX BOAST OF "PEGGING." It Is baseball history that Boston won the pennant from the Athletics in 1912 by pegging" at batters. The players aoast even yet that tneir pitchers utui the Athletics in this way. "We kept Collins and Baker on the ground all tho time," declared one of their pitcheis to me after that season. "As soon as they would get up, . would 'knock them down.' " Ho meant that tho, pitchers would keep throwing the ball at the heads of the Philadelphia players, especially the two stnis. so that thoy Would have to drop flat to avoid being hit, en deavoring In this way to drive batters away from the plate. The Red Sox pitchers always aim at the best players on tne opposing lean Any time you meet Carrlgan's club you can near the chorus from the bench "Dust him off there!" By this they are urging the pitcher to shoot faBt ones so close to the bat ter that the ball dusts him off. Thore la no excuse for this, unless a hitter Is crowding the plate, which none of our batters do. The Red Sox hit more batters and "peg" at moro than any other team in the league. It is Carrl gan's policy, and they boast of it. The Detroit club has fought the Red Sox all the way this season, and clean ly. The Boston boys try to "ride" a team all the time, In tho last two series we played with Carrigan'a club in Detroit, we fought back and "rode" them from the bench. This got the irnata" of n. raw or them. Tne oia Athletics were nevor a gang to do much "riding," and, for this reason, tne itoa Sox were always a hard team for Mack's strong club to beat. The Red Sox Btarted after Manager Jennings last year. We have gone back after them every time the team lias been in Detroit this season. I see the Bos ton papers once in a wnne, ana know the two reporters who are so partisan to Boston began preparing the town for our reception as soon as the Red Sox returned from the West. They (the reporters and" players), all realized that the last series with the Tigers would be the critical one, and would probably decide the pennant race. I hold these two reporters personally responsible for the whole city of Boston losing- Its reputation for fairness and for the attack on mo hy a few fans stirred bv the nowspaperartlclcs they wrote. Except for tho quick work of the police the result might have been very serious. I should think the two reporters would regret their articles now. As a result of this hot preliminary newspaper campaign against the Tigers we all felt tho adverse atmosphere as soon as we arrived In Boston for the big series. Wo were received as If we were playlnir before rowdies. Boston Is gen erally fair. I can't make that too strong. There are manv fair fans, but all the followers of the game lost their reputa tion for fairness through the actions of the few who. aroused by the newspaper articles, started the riot. The reception certainly surprised us. Since I knvp been In baseball, I have never seen nn owner become so work ed up as dor Joseph Lunnln, thr own er of the Boston Red Sox. Winning; this pennant m life and death with him. I panned his box at the park; after that first srame w over In which the fans tried to mob me, and Ills attitude toward me was astound ing. Many of Mr. Lannln'a player have "knocked" him to ine In the past. I never believed this stuff until that last series In Boston. Now, I be lieve It Is all truer' He certainly lose hard when things k against him. Neither tho Boston public nor the Bos ton players nor the reporters peed think that anv team or any Individual players are going to curl up and quit at these "beanlng" tactics. Any big leaguers with a spark of gameness about them are golmr to fiirht back all the harder as ft result of these tactlcB. The re sponsibility for the ensuing trouble in this series rests on the reporters and players who caused tho "boanlng." We had been counting on the flve gnme series between the Red Sox and U'hlt Sox in Boston Just before we nr- ilved to help the Detroit club to win; the championship. The Chicago teamj Is a strong one, and we felt sure it would win at leant two or three games of the Jive. But I nm reliably told that the Red Sox ned the same tactics ncalnBt Rowland's club In that imnor- Stant scries that they employed against us. They were so successrui ana got Weaver's "goat" so effectively that 1)0 ha,d to be taken out of the line-up be-I fore tne onu 01 wie series, ine rruwu, hd by the opinions of the newspaper tepoYters. roasted Weaver so hard that he wad finally put on tho bench. Players on other American Leaguo nlubs do not llko the Red Sox. I'll bet .very other team In the league was pulling for us to win the championship over Boston Of course, they all did their best against us In the garner, In the last series we played In Cleveland on tho wuy East, five Cleveland players came to the club house afterwards and told me thev were sorry wo had lost a tough game against their club. "Of course, we had to put all wo hnd Into It." declared one man, "but wo hated to beat you " The tight In the subwav to the club house btwcen I'levoland and Boston pi ay era some tlma ago is still remembered In Cleveland. I know what the cause of that was, but I don t care to discuss it here. It would not be right. That Is dead now. Now, In Justice to many Boston fans, I Wiinl to say that thousands in the city of "kultur" are fair nnd criticised tho notions of those who stormed on tne neld and surrounded mo after that game. These fair minded followers of tho game also criticised thf actions of tho roporters who staged the disgrace ful reception to tho Tigers In Boston. The Red Sox were treated fair and square In Detroit on their last trip there, as always. Shore pitched a wonderful game against our club In thpt series, and he was liberally applauded by the fans in the stands for his fine work on that occasion. Ho won. There was no feeling shown, no cops, no rabid funs mobbing players, etc., such us we met in Boston. I can say that the Boston reporters well laid scheme Was successful against both the White Golden Opportunities Flit Past Two Teams Dodgers and Tygers Both Fail to Win When League Leaders Were Also in Slump for a Day Moran and Carrigan Sure to Meet. 9 TIiobc eminent Irishmen, Messrs Pat Moran and Bill Carrigan are today sure of meeting on world's series grounds and settling the biBoball supremacy for 1915. Tho liibt hope of the Dodgors to displace the hlllles at tho head of tho National League is gone. Cincinnati pounced on Doll and Smith for a 7 to G defeat, and the percentage tables now show the chances of tho Dodgers to figure in the big series as being "nil." Meanwhile tho Phillies broken even with the Cubs, each team winning' a, game hy 6 to 0, Humphries worked like machinery In the opener, letting Mcran's men down with four hits, while Mayor and Oeschgor were slaughtered. Chalmers was sent totlie scene In tho Becond for the Quakers, and the Cut's got but two hits in eight Innings. Darkness forbade further playing. Tho Phillies, Boston and Brooklyn havo each ten games to play. As a result of yesterday's gomes ths Phillies have a lead of six and one half games over Boston and a lead of seven games over Biooklyn. If thf Phllll's win four out of ten they will win the pennant with a per centage of ,V71. The best Boston ran do by winning ten straight Is .603. and the best Brooklyn can do by winning ten straight Is .GG. If the Phillies should lose seven out of their ten games they would be tied with Brooklyn If tho latter won nil its gnmes, and Boston would have to win every game to beat them out by four points. Eight of the Phillies' ten remaining games nro with Brooklyn and Boston. Tho Phillies play in Brooklyn Septem ber 28; .Boston, September 29. 30, Octo ber 1 and 2, and at home with Brook lyn October 4, 5, nnd 7. The positions of Boston and Detroit In the American Leaguo raco wore not altered, ns both teams lost. Carrigan EXCURSIONS Every G. A. R.

Tho tactics of the Boston. club In 1912, both during the season and the world's series, kept tho crowd from the last game of that thrilling set for the cham pionship. The fans becave disgusted at their treatment. It Is a shame. I don't mind a pitcher "pegging" at mo once In a while, and I will take my chances on getting "hcancd," but whon ho tries to da it with pitch after pitch, It Is too much. I'll admit it looks now as If the Tigers had blown tho championship. We had nil. worked hard to win It, and wo all had our"hearts in Jt. but. If we. would have to win by ,the tactics used In Bos ton. I am Just as well satisfied wo lost. None of us wants to win that way. Their pltchors have been "peg ging" nt batters all season, In 1914. Leonard was always aiming at tho best batters on tho 'Athletics, whenever ho was In the box against Mack's team. We had ft good chance to win tho flag when wo went to Boston for that last series. If we had taken a majority of games, the Red Sox would have curled up, I really believe. If wo had split even, we would havo given them a battto nil the way to tho wire Thoy knew this, and they prepared for us. They gave us some reception. I, myself, don mind play ing before hostile, hollering crowds. It mnkon nnv man uo harder, but. when a fellow has to dodge pitched balls aim-1 cd at his head and pop bottles aimed at- his head, too, It is too much of a handicap. Boston has the pennant, but, in gaining It, the town has accumulated a baseball reputation that will not do It any good. Perhaps some fans think I am trying to alibi our defeat. I am not. It Is a tough strain In a long race to fight all the way up to one critical series and then bo forced to plav it under the conditions we faced in Boston. It seems to nv it was n. very bad way for Mr. Lunnln to handle his club. There is no Interest in the rest of the race now. Tho teams are Just playing out their schedule. In my next article, I will take up the outlook for tho world's series, and try to show what. I think of tho Red Sox chances. I am in no mood to dc it at this time. It Is a big disappointment to me not to be In the world series again before 1 act through In baseball I acknowl edge that. This was a good chance this year. It may not come again In my time. That Inst Boston perles has left a bad taste In my mouth. It Is bound to do It when tho players on the visit ing club In a etranso town agreo to stick around the hotel together through out the period of playing tho series not hecauso they fear anything, but be cause thoy prefer It to mingling. (Copyright, 1916, by The Wheeler Syndi cate, Inc.) nnd his crew, however, seem to bo go ing at so much better a clip that few nro worried over the Possibilities of the Red Sox. Had the Tigers been nble to stop Grift's cjan, a last opportunity to crowd Into tho big games jiext month might hnve been afforded Jen nings, but like the Dodgers, the Tigers overlooked a golden opportunity. Boston waa stopped by the Browns, when the former gave an exhibition of erratic fielding, poor pitching, nnd brainless baseball generally. ICoob won the -second game of the season for the Browns, being the only pitcher able to cope with tho Red Sox ut Fenway Park this season, Chicago took both ends of tho double header from the Athletics, winning tho first game, 7 to 6, and the second, 12 to 5. Poor Holding gave the White Box tho first game, for Richardson pitched better ball than Clcotte. In the second game the Box drove Turner and Crowoll out of the box In three Innings, but could not do anything with Sherman, who went in In the fourth. Everybody Is picking on tho Yankees these day. Cloveland. a tall-end run ner up, beat them yesterday aftornoon by a score of 4 to 1. Vance, who won his spurs a week ago, woh the victim of the assault. He lacked control. That led to his downfoll. Boston shut out Pittsburgh, 2 to 0, due to the effective pitching of Nohf, who held the locals to four hits. Knntlehnor also pitched well, but In the ninth Inning was reached for a, double and two singles, which, with a pass, brought In two runs for the tir es.
