BALTIMORE TO GET BERTH This Will Choke Off Federal ; Court Suit Arising From Re- cent Warfare. By JOE VILA. NEW TOHK, Nov. 8. In order to Im prove condition outside of the two ma jor leagues, the big magnates who shape the destiny of tho national game, have laid plans for the formation of a third big league, a combination of the best cities In tho International league and the American Association, which will not be subject to the draft rule, and may ha.ro a representative on the National Commission somo day. The National Association of Minor Leagues convenes at New Orleans on November 14. Delegates from big and little ball cluba In all parts of tho Uni ted States and Canada will meet Tor the purpose of building up tho sport outside of the major leagues. The big scheme that will come up for careful delibera tion Is the formation of a circuit to em brace Toronto, Buffalo, Baltimore, Newark, Milwaukee, Louisville, ludlana DOlls. and Toledo. If this plan meets with approval, the International League will puss out of oxlstence, together with Its clubs in Providence, Rochester, Montreal, and Richmond, while the American Associa tion! will drop Kansas City, Minneapolis, St Paul, and Columbus. It is the plan of tho big magnates. Including President Ban Johnson, of the American Lcaguo, who Is the prime mover In bringing about this radical change, to call the new major league the American Anno elation, and to elect Edward a. Barrow to the presidency. Dan Knows of It. I understand that Johnson has talked over the plan with Barrow, who In pres ident of the International League, and with several of tho Influential club own ers In the American Association who are going to Now Orleans prepared to re-arrange the minor lcaguo baseball map, If such a thine Is possible. To iono Is the best paying city In the In ternational Lcaguo. Buffalo, Baltimore, and Newark having been represented in ine aerunct t-caerai League mm nave major league ambitions, which Is taken to mean that they wilt display renewed Interest In baseball If they can play In a circuit that Isn't subsorbant to the two big leagues. Became Topheavy. The American Association last season became topheavy with Indianapolis, Louisville, Toledo, and Milwaukee ex celling the other four clubs In patron age. For that reason It Is deemed ad visable to turn Kansas City, Minne apolis, St. Paul, and Columbus into a newly organized Western league, which win be admitted to class "AA." The New York State League, according to the plan under consideration, will chango Us namo to the International with Rochester, Montreal, and Provl denco taking the places of Utlca, Elmlra, and either Troy or Albany. Richmond would return to the Virginia League, or perhaps receive a franchise In the Southern Association, Tho re moval of the draft would enable tho new American Association to hold all pf Its players, with tho privilege of selling some of them to tho highest bidders. On paper, tho scheme certainly looks well. , Tho admission of Baltimore to the new major league, It Is believed, would result la tho withdrawal of tho 3900,000 damage flult brought against organized baseball by the stockholders of tho Baltimore!

Now football fans of tho metropolis know why Georgetown defeated Dartmouth, for the victory of the Southerner over Fordham. 13 to 0, showed Kxendlnc's clevon to be a rejuvenation of all those old wonderful Carlisle Indian foams of the days of Glenn S. War nor's glory. Such a well-balanced, sharp-charging set of forwards and so marvelous an exhibition of Inter ference has not been seen In New York In years. For thirty minutes Fordham, woll- coached and game an a pobble, with stood the powerful pounding; of the Georgetown attack. In the third period nature , could notVtand it longer, and Fordham bcganV6 crack. The rift became wider In tho last period, and Georgetown swept on to victory and the Jesuit title of the East. Defensively, Fordham was an good as Its foo In tho first half, but the Maroon offense availed little against the stubborn forwards from the Na tion's Capital. O'Connor Raging Lion. Captain O'Connor, right tackle for Georgetown, was a raging lion In his team's vicious attack. Quarter back Maloney, who showed hlmaolf a capable workman all day, felt out the Fordham lino from the beginning, and finally settled his pounding on Hug genvlg. playing against O'Connor. Cantwell, left end, and Huggenvlg were pounded unmercifully until both had torotlro. Trennor, the 150-pound confer, was the next to cave lit before flic awful attack of the Washlngtonlans. He could hardly keep his feet when re lieved by Perkins. "Bunny" Corcoran, Brehan at guard, Andy Dempsey, and Lowe, the for mer Lafayette tackle, did well In the face of the Exendlne attack, but they could not stem It. Interference Machinelike. During that second half the George town Interference was a thing of beauty and a Joy forever. More than Gllroy and McQuade, two brilliant ha'f backs, tore across the field behind a shield of six or seven bluc-Jorseyed gladiators who brushed aside all opposi tion. It was a Glonn Warner Interfer ence at top form. Georgetown had the necessary punch. The visitors gained 319 yards by rush ing for eighteen nrst downs, as against eighty-one yards for first downs by tho Maroon. Furthermore, the Hilltoppers wero equipped with masked formations that had Fordham guessing throughout And when Maloney found tho enem standing like a wall before the goal posts, he quickly brought Into play a forward pass that gave his team a touchdown. Gllroy's Great Pass. That forward pass from Gllroy to Tom Whelan, the sahie play that brought cheers oven from tho Fordham side of tho Held.

With his foot swinging as If toward a ball, he hurled the leather to Whelan. standing alone behind Fordham's goal line, and six more points had been added to Georgetown's total.

Bill Cuack. the red-topped tfetcran end of the visitors, wan the only player caught breaking the rules. In tho final period, when Fordham was giving ground, Cusack started down the field under a punt and on his way took a swing on Brehan's Jaw.

Although the mark was not made In the District League, the Royals rolled a 1.776 set several weeks ago, which stands as the District record, and a short time later the Continentals missed this by seven pins. In their big total the Continentals Included a game of 665, which by far surpasses any previ ous game railed here. The Continentals aro leading the Dis trict League with fourteen games won and four lost, with Royals Just one game behind. Captain Halley, of the Royals, Is un decided on his line-up.

National Elect! ic Supply Co, IMtUlMA N. V. A. By LOUIS A. Notice what Freddie Welsh, world's champion lightweight. Is alleged to have said to Johnny Kllbane, fotth erweight .tltleholder, regarding their proposed 'battle for the lightweight crown-? "The weight will be 135 pounds at 2 o'clock tho day of the battle." saya Welsh, "or there'll be no fight." As this column remarked a few days back, Harry Pollock will have much to say before he allows his bread-winner to clamber through the ropes to meet such a good boy as Johnny Kllbane. He haa begun to ay some of It. Kllbane Is a REAL champion. Win ning honors from Abe Attcll, the Clevelander went out and mado as much as ho could. Indeed, It becamo rumored around that he was doing the "Welsh trick" of making money Instead of meeting boys In his own class. Kid Williams' Fate. Kid Williams, bantam champion, was among those who believed that Kllbane was alt done, down and out, as a boxer. Ho challenged him to a six-round bout for a fat sum In Philadelphia. After a little delay they met and those who witnessed that battle will never forget how foolish the .Baltlmorean looked when opposing a clever boxer with a punch. Williams thought to rush Kllbane to the ropes, but he quit this foolish Idea as soon ns he received a couple of those Kllbane Jabs on the end of his nose. Williams then tried to box his man. and quickly found Kllbane's footwork too much for him. Williams thought to mix It with the featherweight champion, and had to quit that, too, when he found himself getting more than he was giving. When the Inst round came along Kllbane CHtue close to putting Wil Hams nway, nothing but tho letter's superb physical condition coining to his assistance nnd allowing him to stall through the sixth session. From Welsh's Viewpoint. Now, from Welsh's viewpoint, he he must bo fully protected when enters the ring with such a tough opponent as Johnny Kllbane. It unuld have done Kllbane little good to have knocked out Williams. There wns little likelihood of his meeting anv other bantam, lint a victory over Welsh might give him nil ex cellent chance to make slathers of money boxing other lightweights. AND 1'Ol.I.OK AND WELSH KNOW THIS. The season of argument, therefore. Is on. Welsh will quibble about the Height, the gloves, the clinching IndtlCK. tho purse, the guarantees, the icferee, n thousand minor de tails, And there Is no sure thing that they will ever meet. From Welsh's viewpoint, n battle with Kllbane may lose him his title, and he's going n long distance be fore he ever tackles a touch lad Hko tho Cleveland boy who put George Chancy away In three rounds. Welsh Isn't anxious tn box such rude fellows, even with Roche In the ring as referee. The Fraternity Fight. On tho face of things, the baseball public has little Interest In the com ing clash between tho magnates and the Raseball Players' Kraternlfv. but before it ends the fans may have perked up bit and begun to mani fest some Interest. Speaking generally, the fans don't care a hoot In Hades whether or not John Jones collects 11,000 a year or 110,000 a year for playing ball.Just so long as he delivers the good, nut the fans are going lo wax excited tho V -aw fcm''fl: 'Mt'm.' 3 I I I ffl vR'sMlBViAiQ This model the universally popular Cordo calf Is particularly good looking and clean cut.

And that's about the present situation. With the Federal League In the field, the fraternity held .a club over the heads of the magnates. And Dave Fuitz still believes this club 1s mado of wood Instead of papier mache. He Is still swing ing It. Let the Strike Come. A few years ago soma major league players threatened to strike In mldseason becauso of an Incident Involving Ty Cobb. The Oeorgla Peach got Into a nffht with an Insulting fan and the De troit players stuck with him. Ban Johnson averted this revolt on the part of tho olayers, but It s dol lars to round holes In doughnuts that. If the Players' Fraternity de cides to hold out from signing 1917 contracts, It will be allowed to go hang. Let the strike come! The more talk there Is In the sport ing columns of dollars, tho less base ball Interest there will be among the fans. Therefore, the only Jhlng left for the magnates Is to fight tho fraternity and let the players strike. If they so desire. Tho players own baseball ability some of them. Idle, they lose their bread and butter, with a little of this ability. In some coses. The magnates own real estate most of them. Idle, the magnates can always realise on their real es tate. They can make MORE MONEY SELLING THEIR REAL ESTATE than they can by conduct ing a baseball club. Profits Are Mythical. llnscball profits aro largely a mat tei of myth. Look at those men who sunk hun dreds of thousands In the late Fed eral League venture. They thought they would all coin doubloons oxer night. Hut did they? The minor lesgues of the country, speaking generally, lost money for the past three years. Few minor leagues made much money last sea son, with the Feds out of the way and everybody making munitions for the allien. If It were not for the sporting blood of the magnates there would be changes In the roster of the own ers everv winter. Few of them draw dividends worth while for their Investment. The fraternity Is lilting off Its own nose to spite Its face. If It continues to carry tho fight to the magnates. The moguls have something upon wTilch to reallrc. Tho players have nn th I tic. So let the strike come. Open New Stadium. The new Taylor stadium ,at Lehigh University, which has been completed through the generosity of Mrs. Charles M.
