LOUIS A. DOUGHER
Virginia Polytechr.:*- Institute and Virginia Militan,- Institute, with
a football rivalry running back to 1894, will battle on the fair grounds
at Roanoke next Thursday, and it will be for blood. No teams in the
country, not excepting Lafavette and Lehigh. Yale and Princeton or
Harvard and Yale, have any deeper spirit of rivalry than these two fine
Virginian institutions and Roanoke is sure to be crowded to the back
irate when their elevens tramp out to the fair ground?, for their 1919
erntest
Of thirty-eight football t-ame.-. between Harvard and Yale, the sons
of Old Eli have won twenty-three. Five have ended without a victor
and the Crimson ha.s won ten, counting last Saturday's 10 to 3
triumph at Cambridge. It scema a'most as if real rivalry called for
one-sidednes3 like that. The V. P. I.-V. M. I. rivalry carries much
the same tale, for out of seventeen contest?- the Techs have won thir
teen. One frame, that of 1913, -"?--.tied, leaving but three victories for
the cadets of V. M. I. And yet the Lexington eleven will line up
against the Techs Thuv.-ulay with all the tire and all the dash that
have made their teams famous in the past.
? V p. I. has ha?! _ good season this
fall, defeating Mar .?';_: 1 S t.?.?.-? -' ?
Toning to Washington and Lee by a
field goal. The Techs failed to got
?tarted against ?Georgetown until it
?Aa? too late, but they played better
football at the Hilltop than did the
"* frenerai- last w-it. all things
?idered. The Techs ??'aould win from
V M I Thursday, but they will have
? a fight in frem of them to bring home
the victory
However, this has been a poor sea
son for teams counting on sure
things. Tale has lost both its Har
vard and Princeton games this year
for the first time since 18*8. so there
is hope for V. M. I. "to defeat the
Teehs. If they do. tt will be for the
first time since 1900. That year at
Koanok* the cadets triumphed, 5 to 0.
Herr \re tfce Rerord?.

Virginia Institutes, here are the

V. P. ? has the prood honor ofh.v
lag poasessed the greatest football
player in the history of Southern
football. He was Hunter Carpenter.
As a running and kicking halfback,
it Is doubtful if his equal ever ex
isted in Dixie. .Stortes are told that
make Mr? a sort of "Mike Kelly of
the- gridiron.''
We asked Percy Given, a great I
(j-eorgertown center In his day, who |
he thought was the greatest football ;
player he ever saw, knowing that '
P?*cy had seen Jim Th?>rpe at his
best in many big games. We sort
uf thought Thorpe would be named.
He Plckrd <"?r^eater.
"The greatest payer I ever saw?"
replied Percy. "Hunter Carpenter, of
V. P. I. He was the greatest player
who rrver leaved football. I don't
CiiLaee anybody ahead of him. He
could do everything anybody else
could, and do .t better. There isn't
any argument in ray mind, not for a
m:nute "
Therefore, the following incident
?ent out from V. P. 1. is of more than
ordinary interest. It occurred in the
Thankr<giving Day game of 1?H>_. play
ed at Norfolk and won by V. P. I . 50
to 5
V M. I. had punted to Tech and
the bail Had gone over the goal line.
In a play of this kind the player who
sets the bell may run it out or touch j
?he bait to the ground and bring it
..jt to the 30-vard line f.rr scrimmage.
Carpenter got the ball, turned his
?_? back to the V. M. I. team and pre
tea, <jed to touch the ball to the
r-round, the referee ?tending by his
.?jde intently wat?'hing the whole per
>rrnance.
(IMa'l Taaarh '.reemd
"Tou will see, Mr Keferee. said
*? center, "that I did not bring the
?all down any further than my shoe
? tops, and the ball ? an b<* run out."
**Ve?. " said i?- ree. "I, have

r nTBLv
been watching the whole procedure,
and if you can get by with it you
have my consent."
J?oth Carpenter and the referee
walked out as if to bring the ball to
the "??-yard line to be scrimmaged,
both keeping up a rapid tire conver
i sation.
"They walked past the 20-yard line,
; then to the _5. and on to the 30, when
, some V. M. I. player yelled. 'Say.
Carpenter, how far are you going to
walk with that ball?'
"Catch me and see." retorted Car
penter, and he was off like a shot for
( a total gain of 85 yards before he was
brought to earth by one of the V. -?
?. team.
Howl ?lil'l t?o.
Of course, a howl went up from the
amazed V. M. I. cohorts. It was
claimed that Carpenter had no right
to turn that trick, but the refere?
ruled in favor of the Tech star. In
deed, he admit?d that he and Car
penter had argued the whole matter
to a finish while walking past the
_0-yard line.
This incident savors of the Mike
Kelly stuff, the great major league
baseball players being one of those
geniuses who could bend rules to suit
i himself when the occasion presented
itself.
Once, when Carpenter appeared ?tt
Annapolis with the Techs to play the
Middies, he astonished everybody on
the field by gfking the referee if he i
might -dregs the Naval Academy
team. On receiving a smiling permis
sion, he ?aid:
"Gentlemen, we are here today to '
give you fellow? a fin? beating. I'm
going to do it myself and I have ten
others to help me. That is all. I
thank you.''
And V. P. I. won that game, largely
through the mairniflcent playing of
Hunter Carpenter.
Undoubtedly the rivalry between
th??.-? two Virginia schools has been a
good thing fur football in this section.
May the better team land this year's
triumph.

Wait Till Rooters See
This Guy
CHICAGO, Nov. 25?John Titus,
the old Phillies' outfielder, sport
ed the last mustache in the Na
tional League, but Fred Mitchell,
of the Cubs, is going him one
better.
Mitchell is going to take on the
spring training trip a gent with
whiskers and long huir?the long
hair part of the makeup being
just like a woman."
He is entitled P. L. Mooney
and he belongs to a religious
order called "the House of
David." He is a pitcher by trade,
winning eighteen and losing six
games last season while hurling
for his brethren, who also sport
whiskers and long hair.
F. Thorp, manager of the be
wiskered and long-haired club,
writes: "He has as good a
floater as Ed Cicotte," which
should entitle him to at least one
squint from the discerning eyes
of Mr. Mitchell.
When he joins the Cubs he will
not shave, his sect holding to the
belief that whiskers are neces
s?*y to righteousness, because
there is nothing in the Bible
about taking em off.
FREEMAN SAYS SCHWRTZ
IS SURE TO SHINE YET
Wa-hington's Slugging Newsboy
Will Appear In Ard
more Ring.
Joe Freeman, who is handling the
affairs of Young Joe Schwart-, the
Washington newsboy. thinks his
young slugger a coming star In the
ring and that he will indicate his
class at Ardmore Thanksgiving Day,
when he tackles Young Kilbane, of
Akron, Ohio, in the six-round semi
final.
"This kid has a lot to learn about
working around a ring, but he hasn't
a thing to learn about hitting," says
Freeman, "lie knocks 'em dead,
that's what he does, and Kilbane
will have to keep *his chin out of
range or hear the birdies sing."
Washington's newsboj?? fraternity
will be at the ringside at Ardmore,
backing Schwartz with coin and
lungs.
The main bout will be a. fifteen
round contest between Mik% l.'raine,
Washington's "l'ii-litin-? ? >|>." and
Young Kid Broad, of Philadelphia.
Both boys are fairly clever boxers,
but each depends more upon his wal
lop than upon fancy stuff when in
side the ropes.
Four preliminaries and a battle
royal complete the card for Turkey
Day, the first bout .starling about
S:pO o'clock.
PINKY MITCHELL EASILY

Mitchell, Milwaukee lightweight, won j
easily over Mel Coogan, Brooklyn, m
a ten-round bout here last night.

landed a hard right to the head.
I'inky came ba< k with a right to the

YALE MEN DEMANDING
CHANGE IN GRID SYSTEM1
Elis Want -Younger Men In Charge
of Varsity in
Future.
NEW HAVEN. Conn., Nov. J?.?A?
a result of the 1919 campaign. Yale
undergraduates and the younger
alumni are loud in their demand for
changes in the football system here.)
There it? a cry for new blood. The
principal claim is for younger men to
be placed at the head of things.
Several of the changes winch are
demanded include: First, reconstruc
tion of th" membership of th?? grad
uate football committee: second j
? hange.? in the present resident ,
coaching staff: third, radical innova
lions in the system of physical super- |
vision of the players; fourth, altera-j
tions in th?? training table system; !
fifth, changes in the method of ticket
distribution.
One of the principal changes de
manded by the undergraduates is that
both Wie graduate football committee
and resident coaching staff include
adilitions of young men. l?oth are |
composed ol former players, who have
been out of college many years, some
of them unabl?? to give personal at
tention to their administrative or
active coaching duties
HE'LL GET THE MONEY.

MARYLAND STATE WORKS
FOR HOPKINS CONTEST
Maryland State Oolk-ge football
players are looking to Johns Hop
kins Thursday to give them one of
th?; grandest battles of the year. The
Hopkins mi-ii drew down a l.'!-all tie
with St. ?tote's Cull?***?! Saturday.
Previously State had trimmed St.
John's College to ? fare ye well, and
as it was rumored that both Johnny
Wilson and Oli Hoble had lent their
aid to the Annapolis cadets it was
?a that Hopkins m?-t an improved
eleven.
Hopkins slKiuld ha\e won the St.
John's game, according to accounts,
and State players are wondering il
the Hopkins t rib?? was holding out
l>a them.
State has had no trouble in taking
Die Maryland eollegiati* champion
ship:! since Curley Byrd has been in
charge at College? Talk. I-'ive years
ago Stute handed Hopkins an awful
Jolt, and has be?n doing it regularly
with one exception ever since.
The Maryland State eleven will go
into the gam?> Thursday with all of
the regulars in line. The team
counts on gaining another State title
but has bei-? fooled once before
when the odds appeared all out of
