NAVY BATTLES GENERALS Timberlake and Stokes, Wash , ington Boys, Are Identified ' With West Pointers. By LOUIS A. DOUGHER. Washington li peculiarly Interested In the aervlco football elevens, the Capital being tho scat of the Govern ment, and theroforo all Washington will watch closely what the Army docs with Notre Damo tomorrow at West Point. This wilt be tho first really strong opponont the Soldiers have faced thla season. As a sldo Issue, two former Wash ington Interscholastlc players aro Iden tified with the Army. Timberlake, out of tho gamo by reason of class work, has but recently rejoined the aquad, and Is making a groat play for a place on the first eleven. Johnny Stokes Is substitute for Captain McKwnn nt cen ter, and stands an excellent chance of getting Into the Notre Dame gamo, the Soldier captain being In poor physi cal condition. Signs point to Stokes being the first string center next sea son, with McBwan graduated. Army haa dono well so far thla sea son, though It has hardly faced an eleven of rocognlzod skill. Washington nnd Lee Is tho best team It has play ed, and tho Southerners wero defeat ed. 14 to 7. Notre Dame Is not credited this year with being aa strong as In past years, but still Jesse Harper's crowd can put up a vicious exhibition of straight football, and then can switch to the latest stylo of aerial football. Tho South Bend aggregation should thor oughly test the strength of the Army Just when It should bo tested. What ever weaknesses aro disclosed should bo remedied in Plenty of time before the Soldiers go down to Now York for their annual clash with tho Navy at the Polo Grounds, November 25. Coach Daly has In Ollphant and Mc Kwan players of AU-Amerlcan callbor. ollphant starred at Purdue beforo en tering tho Military Academy and he's been keeping up tho good work ever since at Went Point. Ho thinks nothing of galloping through the foe for five or six touchdowns a day. Indeed, ho counts that day lost when ho doesn't Keep up to his record. Ho stunds nn excellent chance of being the year's best scorer. McBwan Is a mountainous man In tho mlddlo of the Una who has all tho quick ness of a panther. As a. roving center on defense he Is well-nigh terrlblo to the enemy. But In addition to this pair, Coach Daly has Vidul. from South Dakota University, a halfback who can run the ball and kick It as well as ever Charlie Brlckley or Eddie Mahan did for Fair Harvard, Army's line Is built around McEwan. while tho bnckflelil consists largely of Ollphant anjl Vldal. There Is no Mer rllat on the end this year, but with Mc Ewan, Ollphant, and Vldal to carry tho hrunt of the game the prospects or vic tory seem bright. Tomorrow Washington and Lee will try Its luck ngalnst the Navy eleven at Annapolis. The Soldiers won from tho Generals and the Sailors expect to bet tor the score of the West Pointers, who won, 14 to 7. It Is expected that many Navy followers from Washington will be In tho stands to see the game. In Tibbott Princeton has a most valuable dropklcker, a player who al most always makes good In a pinch. His field goal against Tufts decided the victory, and was also the longest kick he has ever made in a big game, traveling forty-six yards. In the 1915 Dartmouth game he dropklckcd a field goal from tho 44-yard line and against Syracuse he kicked one from the 43 yard line, and another from tho 30 yard line. Against nutgers he booted a field goal from the 33-yard line and In the Harvard game came through with two, one from the 30-yard lino and another from the 25-ynrd line. Tho value of such a man as Tibbott Is not so much for the field goals he kicks as for the frame of mind of his opponents who know his ability. They know that the moment ho reaches tho 40-yard line he may count three points for Princeton. He may not succeed It) every effort, but he keeps the enemy on tho anxious seat all tho time, In terfering with their regular game. Catholio University leaves today for Lexington. Va., whero tho strong V. M. I. eleven is to bo mot tomorrow. The Brooklanders have about recov ered from their severe shaking up of a week gone and hope to win from the cadets. Maryland Stato and St. John's get to gether at Annapolis in tho first Stato championship scrap of the season. "Curly" Byrd's team la a well-rounded outfit, and is favored to win. but the home team has been strengthened by many players returning from the Texas border. The East has won two out of three games from Western elevens thus far, as follows: Colgate. 15: Illinois, 3. Tufts, 13; Indiana, 10. Michigan. 14; Syracuse. 11. Six Southern teams have failed to win from Kastero elevens, as follows: Princeton, 29; North Carolina, o. Harvard, 21; North Carolina, 0, Tale, 81; Virginia, ft. Tale, 19 ; V. P. I 0.

Cambridge, whore It plays Harvard Saturday, Pat Evatm und his charges do not expect to win from the heavier Crimson, but they uro hopeful of hold ing down their foemen. Against Harvard Virginia will line up as follows: White. left onit; Mc Kay, loft tackle; Coleman, jeft uuind; Churchman, center; Thiirmun. right guard; Ward, right tackle; Durwlri, right end; Carrington, quarterback; Klnaolvlng, loft halfback; Itusnoll, right halfback; Captain Spurr, fullback.

Georgetown Preps have been put through a courso of sprouts by Billy Martin, former Hilltop end. There are those who maintain that tho contest will be tho fastest of any of the school boy games this year. Neither coach s making predictions on the outcome, out there is a deal of Interest In the battle from the high schools. Western rocently lost two first class athletes In Borden and Lamer. Borden was a first rate baseball player ana polo vaulter, Lnrner, who has entered Lawrencevllle. was counted upon to hold down the right forward position on tho basketball team this winter. Central reports the toss of a promising athlete in Lynch, who attended the Ma nasses High School last year. Lynch was expected to moke the Central relay team this winter. Mike Thompson, coach of the Balti more City College eleven, of Baltimore, was here In conference with Principal Wilson, of Central High School, yes terday, and It was agreed to send Cen tral to flll tho engagement with the City Collego for tomorrow. Central had scheduled the game and then canceled on account of the shift In schedule here. The Central lads will meet tho Balti more boys tomorrow afternoon, Coach Mctzler taking the entire Central squad over for the nattle. Central came out of the Business game In fine shape, and will have a rest In tho title aeries for ten days following the Business en gagement. In order to keep up the rivalry be tween tho school boys In Baltimore and Washington, Thompson came over Tor the express purpose of landing the bat tle.
