McGRAW AFFAIR IS SECRET National League Leader Re fuses to Discuss Investiga tion Into Outburst. WEW TOKK Oct 20.-Whatevor ln TtaUKatlon thero may bo of the McQraw charges In tho last Brooklyn-Giant lies will not bo made public. Gov. ornor Tnr; president of tho National League, who on Wednesday refused to either deny or affirm that a conferenco will be held between himself, Hemp stead, and McQraw to discuss the Brooklyn game, again was non-committal on tho subject yesterday. Tenor would not be pinned down to a direct statement. Tener was told that one baseball of ficial considered McOraw's statement after the much discussed Brooklyn game a graver offense than the one for which former President FogeL of the Phillies woo forced out of the National League In Mil I cannot see the parellel "between tho two cases," said Tener. "As far as I can recall, Fogel was dropped from the National League for printed statements In which he accused -the umpires' of de liberately favoring New York; In other words, charging them with dishonesty." "But It seems they no longer discipline clnb presidents for making such state ments," continued Tener Ironically. He was referring to the printed statement of President Lannln. of the lied Sox in which he charged the American Leajjuo umpires of regularly giving decisions against the Bed Sox and declared lie would sell out If the Red Box did not win the American League pennnnt. "At least I notice they no longer think such charses need an Investigation. And I haven't seen any club president drop ped from baseball lately. But, of course, that Is none of my buslnes.NThni Is the affair of the other league." Tener Implied that Lannln' charges were far more In need of an Investiga tion than the McQraw statement, which Tener said was given "In the heat of a temper." It also Is a slap at Johnson for his statements at the time of the McOraw Incident. In which he accused 'the Na tional League of lack of backbone If it did not Investigate McOraw's charges, and added he would have raised Nod If the McOraW episode had happened In his league. Tener practically tolls Ban to wash his own linen first. Generals to Try Out Substitutes Tomorrow MJXINGTON, Vs., Oct. 20,-Although the game tomorrow with Roanoke Col lege will be one of the two easy games on the 'Washington and Lee football schedule, Head Coach "Jogger" Blcock and Assistant Coach "Jlggs" Donahue are looking forward to It with Interest because It will be their Jlnal oppor tunity to give some of the substitutes and second string men a chance to show what they can do before the big games' mat win mane tne remainder or the Generals' season. So far in only the Randolph-Macon game on September 30 were the coaches able to send any of the second string men Into play. In the Army and Rutgers games the substitutions were few. Although the coaches are congratulating themselves that none of the regulars was Injured In either of these games, tho hard con testa to come with Georgia Tech, Navy, Bucknell, Washington and Jefferson, and North Carolina A. & M. may make necessary the sending Into play of what are now second string men, and prac tically every man on the squad will have a chanoo to show what ho has In him tomorrow.

Western and Central will meet Tues day afternoon at American League Baseball Park weather , permitting In tho flrah clash of tho scholastic foot ball championship series. The recent rain has mired the field to such an ex tent that Oroundkeeper Jim O'Dea at the ball park concluded It Impossible to stage a contest today. For this reason tho faculty advisers camo to the conclusion that all parties would be best served by setting the schedule back ono'datc. With Western and Central opening up on Tuesday, Tech qnd Eastern will tako tho field on Friday next, one week from today. This brings the Buslncss-Cenlral clash on the following Tuesday. Oroundkeeper O'Dea found the field In pools df water this mornlrig. The chalked lines were all washed out, and It was found impossible to get the field In playing shape. It has been the policy of the faculty adVlsera to stage the gnmes on dry days rather than to force tho teams through a muddy con flict. The stipulation made by Manager Griffith that the turf must bo dry made It Impossible to stage the contest to day. Jack Gass had been selected to referee and Hunter McGuire to umpire. The faculty advisers are making an effort to obtain the services of Lieu tenant Shaffroth, of the Army, to act as linesman. Tho postponement of today's game throws out several well laid plans. Tech and Eastern as well as Business players were to attond today's game, and had not scheduled contests. No games were contemplated for tomorrow, as both Eastern and Business have played this week and Tech has scrimmaged against the Gallaudct Reserves. Western and Central had light work outs In tho mud yesterday, and were primed for the contest today. The teams will take things easy until their battlo next Tuesday. Gonzdga Is scheduled to play the Alexandria High School eleven today, while tomorrow the Georgetown Preps will engage the Carroll Institute team which recently defeated Eastern High School.

During the Georgetown Preps Carroll Institute game the Georgetown Dartmouth game will be announced. The Georgetown Freshmen are jour- neylng to rome institute to meet tne Tome boys tomorrow afternoon, The Freshmen have a well balanced team and a couple of players who will make in. oNs"A bff, 3 J9 H Paralysis Victim In Harvard Squad Mild Case, Say the Doctors, and Football Team WH1 Play ' Saturday!

II., Oct. .-Owlnf to Injuries, several of Dartmouth's nrst string players will not face Georgetown at Haverhill, Mass., tomorrow.

Hoi- brook or Cannell, quarterback; Thlel scher, right halfback; Gerrlsh. left halfback: R. Holbrook or Tyler, full- back.
