Navy May Play Georgetown Here Next Year Plans Are Already Under Way - PLANS UNDER WAY "BUGS" BAER TAKES A PEEK AT WILLIE HOPPE BEATING YAMADA TO HAVE NAVY PLAY GEORGETOWN HERE u By LOUIS A. DOUGHER. Georgetown rnay play the Navy eleven In Washington next sea Forces are at work in official circles here to bring this about and, ufficient demand can bo seen for the appearance of the Middies, it is believed that no obstacles will be put in the way of the project. Georgetown has come forw&rd with an offer of half the gate receipts to go to the Navy orphans' fund. Navy people of prominence have for some time considered plans for bringing the Middies to the Capital, believing that official and dip lomatic Washington deserves an opportunity of seeing the service eleven in action without traveling to Philadelphia or New York, or even to Annapolis. They have found almost unanimous agreement with the idea of having the Navy team visit the Capital next year. It is impossible to stage the annual Army-Navy contest here, but Georgetown has evinced its willingness to face the Middles. Tho Hill toppers have gone to Annapolis for years, bringing with them a fair number of football enthusiasts, but with a contest played here all Washington's Government circles could enjoy seeing the game. When It was suggested that the game be played here, with an ad mission charge, the Navy authorities announced that they did not play for money. Immediately Georgetown offered to donate half the re ceipts to the Navy fund. At Annapolis no admission charge is asked for any of the sports engaged in by the future admirals. Georgetown could not very well take all the receipts, nor did such a thought occur to the West End authorities. As soon as it was suggested that half the receipts go to the Navy fund, complete accord arrived between the two sides. MAY PLAY IN NOVEMBER. If the suggested plana go through successfully, and there Is every Indi cation that' they will. It Is possible that this game will bo played In November Instead of Ootober, The Navy authori ties have been complaining all season over tho poor schedulo for tho cloven which opens the campaign with hard teams like Georgetown and Pittsburgh and, Just when strong 'cams should nppear to assist the Middles In "prep ping" for tin annual battle with tho Army, tho weakest teams are met. This condition existed this season and miny close followers of the game believe that the schedule did mora toward bringing nbout tho defeat of the Nuvy at New York last Saturday than any other one thing. Georgetown Is sure to have a power ful eleven In 1916. Captain Iiarron Is the only man to be missed and strong institutes are at hand to fill In his place In the line. The Navy would have no easy tlmo of It playing the Hlua and Gray in November, as both elevens would then bo far advanced in nil that makes for success on tbe grid iron. Putting weaker teams on the Navy schedule for October, gradually hrlnrlng stronger opponents, would as sist the Middles In their preparation lar uctter tnan to nave tne strong teami open the campaign and tho weak er ones come in a few weeks before tho annual game with the west Point crs. This balancing of the football sched ule Is credited oy manv with the gen eral success of the Armv In it games w'th the Navy. The Army, for Instance, opened Its 1U campaign with Holy "rrrs. Gettysburg followed, And then came Colgate, Georgetown. Vlllanova, nnd Notre Damn on successive Satur dii i After those strenuous combats, the Maine game came os a relief foi the tired soldiers. Hnrlncfteld Training School proved Just the right opponent for the Army before -nretlnT the Nay. On the other hand, the Navy opened wllh Georgetown and nulcklv came Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania. V. P. I., North Carolina Aggies, Itueknel). Colby, nnd ITralnus were then taken on. the , last three telng entirely useless ns 1 reparation for the Armv game. There is considerable difficulty ahead nf all schedule makers at the scrvleo schools Without idmlsslon charres, ' n' the stronger teams care to plav the cadets. However, this does not ob tain at Georgetown The Hlltorppri have never considered tli when boel; tic their annual irnmes vvl'b the Navv. This year Georgetown failed to make monev p either game vlth the service schools, but no complilnt is mnde on tht scire The riantcm-nt at the Hintop helleved. from a footbH rtand point, that those two rnmes would aid the team Their -flvlnni was proved hv later results Th eleven constantly rrew stronger e It nt tro"rer op ponents T'e constantly grew fenkrr n tne callter of Its opponents grew weaker. It Is doubtful If this game could b plHj'd at Georgetown I'lelil. All of llclal Washington would want to see the Middles and then the general pub lic would li's-ivc attention at the hands of Georgetown Tho standi at tho Hilltop seat ahout 7.W, which would hardly care for half of those dcalilng to see this game The onlv log cal 1 lace for the game would be the Amerl itn Treason Park Three years IB" Manuaei I'latk lilf- tlth declined to nllw tho high schools i in use his nark I ecause at that time I was putting In new sod and did not cam to have It torn up bv football 'ent. Since then, however, the Held has set tled and today would not be ruined by football players. The Polo Grounds are used each fall for football games without suffering anv damage and this could easily be pointed out to the ball club ofdeers. With the Navy tackling the Hllltop pers at tho ball raik. I would easll be possible to care for at least 3,00) spectators. This would provide for all official Washington and most of the general public who almost never see a service eleen In action. With both teama playing good football and snow ing inoro and more strength from week, to week a November contest at the ball nsrk would easily draw fVW spettatore Prominent Navy officials are now at work on this plan to bilng tl J Navy eleven here In 1"1 for a gan.e with Georgetown. They pnlrt out that all department workers could spare the little time neccssnrv to seo the game. Golns to New York takes two nights and a day out of Govern-it-ent duties. Going to Philadelphia takes a dav. Going to Annapolis practically lakes a whole day With the Fomr plaved here, not inoie than couple of hours would h lost. It Is enected ttiut this Jihoso of the question will have considerable effect with the authorities, whose permis sion must be obtained hefoie tho N'avv eleven Is allowed to come to Washington. So far as the middles themselves sie concerned, they can come here fiom Annapolis In less than two hours, play the gnme, and return to Annapolis In time for dinner. Almost, no time whatever would bo lost In doing this Ijuleed, It mluht bu pns stble for tho wholn hattnllon of mid shipment to accompany the ejsven to the Capital nnd still lore none of their routine duties at the Academy. Georgetown Is perfectly willing to do anything that will please tho Navy official. If It 1m decided that November la too late for the content, Georgetown la willing- to have If. Played In October, though preferring the later date. The went end author ities expect some action In the mat ter yean and It la possible that whin l.o Georgetown 1916 schedule la ar ranged. Tl will bo found that tho Navy elev.en will be played In Wash Inrlon, the service school yielding to a demand from the officials here. CORNELL CANT PLAY PITTSBURGH.ELEVEN Faculty Will Not Allow Any More Games and Athletes Have Broken Training. I ITHACA. N. Y Dec. l.-A post- season rootoau game between Cornell and Pittsburgh is absolutely impossible; in tho first place, because the Cornell faculty permits Its football team only a certain number of games and will not consider such a contest as that sug. gested to decide the Eastern champion ship, and. In tho iccond Place, because the Cornell eleven has already broken training. Captain Barrett, of Cornell, received a telegram from Coach Glenn Warner, of Pittsburgh, last night challenging tho big tied team to a post-senson game The Cornell Athletic council has not had time officially to act on the mat. tor, but those concerned declaro that the proposition Is ridiculous, aa well as Impossible, considering present athletlo conditions and sentiment In Ithaca.

Not in years has such n sensation been created in Yale athletics as that caused today by an open state ment of Lucius Horatio Difrelow, of New York, advocating Foster San ford as head coach at Yale. Bige low was captain of the champion team of the fall of 1007. He played tackle for three yean, and was on the Yale crew one year. Later, Bigelow wag head coach of Capt. Robert B. Burch's eleven. In his statement he says nothing of Tad Jones, who was All-America quarterback on Bigelow's team nnd assistant coach to Blgolow the fol lowing year. Jones is now coach of Exeter and many want him to come here. After reviewing the past sea son, Bigelow says: "In tho first place, Yale I'nlverslty, both faculty and undergraduates, must understand that the Yale which has passed on and out into the world will not tolerate again n situation similar to that which existed this year. We Insist that it Is our right to have hi very best Ysle football brains In this country employed In training the men who will be called upon to represent us In th names with Princeton and Harvard. We Insist that It Is our right to have the best Yalo football brains employed In nbtalnlnr the head coach for next rear, and that this be done . right awav. "No so-called athletic committee composed either of men who have no football experience or of men who have only played football for the past few years, has any right to install a system or make arrangements with any man to como to New Haven as head coach without first obtaining the ad vice and tho approval of tho represen tative football men of Yale. "We want three things at New Ha ven: "rlrst, a hend coach who la man enough to obtain and maintain tne respect and admiration of the men with whom ho comes Into contact, who knows the game well enough to bo able to teach Yale football, codify the tale game, use everything of value which any Yale man has to oner, and Install a system at New Haven which win do big enough to endure without the per sonal control or any one num. "Second, a coach for tho freshman team who will come here for a term of years and who will. In conjunction wrfth the university head coach, train tho freshmen In Yale football. "Third, o man who mlRht be known as an athletlo adviser, or as anv thing else that vou want to call him, whose main duty It would be to get Into con turt with tho men as they come vo New Haven, and to keep In contact with them after they ate there: to take a personal Interest In the men, make them see how worth while it Is to keep up In their studies, act as a go-between for faculty and undergrad uates, and In general make the 'Inell glble team disgrace' an Impossibility in tho future "My suggestions for the men fot those three positions are as follows- For head coach, Foster Sanford. Ho would be very glad to tako this Job, which might well daunt a smaller man He Is a Yale man to the bone, and every one knows what kind of a coach lip has The super-smart shape of the season.
