O?0 "-U vuusQ ???? ?we t?o> m\4e\t*-e * GEORGIA TECH ATTEMPTS TODAY TO HUMBLE BOB FOLWELL'S ELEVEN WASHINGTON TIMES SPORTS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1922. -ftaattMMi CXXXO ?TOP lam, us ?sor gPMOO 101.0 usa WS-.?, sa* NAVY TEAM SHOULD WIN FROM YELLOW JACKETS IN TODAY'S BIG GAME By LOUIS A. DOUCHER. Today, for the fifth time, Georgia Tech's far-famed Gloden Tor nado will attempt to win a football game in the North. Three times the Atlanta contingent journeyed to Pittsburgh, failing each year. Last year Penn State defeated the Yellow Jackets at the New York Polo Grounds. Today the sons of Uncle Sam should turn back the Golden Tornado by at least two touchdowns. Georgia Tech's peculiar formations may be expected to worry the Middies for a while, perhaps for the first period. It may run even into the second period, depending wholly upon the football sense possessed by the sailors. But once the Middies realize that heir sturdy charge can break up those puzzling shifts and blind attacks on the wings, the Navy should proceed to march down the Held for touchdowns. Georgia ??*?:?? will be outweighed,?? especially in the Une. but the Atlanta team la made up largely of veterans who have been well grounded in .the' Helsman style of play. If they man age to get away to a flying start, It would not be surprising, ln the least, to see them scoro Inside the first five minutes. It's a way they have of scoring early. However, It is doubtful If Georgia Tech has faced anything like the hard-driving defense the Navy will ?how today. Oglethorpe fell before the Yellow Jackets, 31 to 0. The light Davidson team was beaten, 1?.? to 0. Last Saturday, Alabama Uni versity was properly cleaned up, 33 to 7. It is a safe bet that in all three of those games Tech did not face the drive ln defense it will realize in the Very first period today. So far as scores 90, Tech over shadows the Navy. Western Re serve, a high school team, waa beat an, 71 to 0. It ?id not even provide good practice. Bucknell waa barely beaten, 14 to 7, last Saturday. 80 much for scores. There is this to be said of these acores. The Bucknell game was ac tually the first of the year for the .Middies. An entire week was wasted by bringing Western Reserve to An napolis. The Ohioans did not pro vide even good practice. Any time you think Bucknell can be taken on for a sucker, you have one huge think still coming to you, and more especially if you're Navy man. In the first place, Bucknell ranks With the stiftest defensive teams ln the country. It may lack suitaoie attack to go on down the field to ?cores, but It never lacks a Ine that can tear opposing attacks to pieces. In the second place, Bucknell Is usually more effective against the Middles than against other teains of less strength. And that was the team against which the Middles had practically to open their 1922 campaign last Saturday. Only by a wonderful ruah toward the close of the game was the Navy able to finish on the long end of the score. Personally, we look for a Navy victory by at least two touch downs. We look for Tech to make Its usual flashy start. Then the Middies will begin tearing through on that famous shift formation and It'll be good night - so far as a victory for Tech. The success of the Yellow Jack ets will hang largely on the length ?f time It takes the Navy to diag nose "that peculiar attack. The hacks shift. The forwards shift. Sometimes they all shift at once, tending to spread the defense. And so well trained are they that the Yellow Jackets are tearing down the field with a loose runner gal loping aolng behind, aa many as four men ln an Interference. Navy's ends, tackles and half hacks will have a merry time until they discover how to break up that shift. Then Tech will suddenly ?cease to gain ground. If Navy teams of the past offer any criterion, this may require the entire first period nnd then the blue-jerseyed lads will be found piling up the Tech back field the moment the ball moves. Judging from the figures made public. Navy will greatly outweigh Tech ln the line. The backfield? ap proximate about the same weight. Tech has a veteran quartet behind the line. Navy Is not so well equipped. However, Captain Conroy and Barchet should look quite as good on attack as even the re? ?owned Reds Barren and McDonough ?r Brewster. Georgia Tech will not want for support today. For weeks Waah tagtonlaas have been worked up and thousands have become "alumni" of Atlanta's great engineering school. If only for today It will be a noisy after Moon at Annapolis. The Golden Tornado worked out yeeterday on Bancroft Field. It was little more than a mere limbering tip exercise and the formations to he used today were not in sight. A ?rood night's rest at Carvel Hall, headquarters of the Southerners, should fit the entire squad for a Wonderful exhibition today against ths Middles. Washington football fans are especially interested today in young Cullen. who Is a Navy halfback. Cullen formerly captain???! the Central High School eleven In Waah lngton and Is now making good ander Bob Folwell. It Is believed that Oeorgla Tech Will appear In Washington next asasen. The Navy Is expected to ofier the Southerners a game at American League Park, while Georgetown also wants to entertain the Yellow Jackets ln the Capital. ? IM? Laurel Races LACBBL, MARYLAND.

L Harvard-Centre and Navy Georgia Tech Clashes Are Headliners. Two big intereectional games, calling for Centre College to invade Harvard's stadium for the third and laat year and Georgia Tech to meet the Navy at Annapolis, fea ture the collegiate football program for today. Of minor consideration ia the East vs. Weat meeting of the University of Detroit and Bos ton college at Petriot. In addition, the Western con ference is due for a banner day. Michigan goe? down to Columbua to help Ohio State open its new stadium. Illinois takes on Iowa, the team that beat Yale, at Urbana. Ills., Northwestern meets Minne sota at Bvanston, Chicago and Pur due will ? lash at Chicago, and Wis consin and Indiana will have it out at Madison. Wis. From an intereectional stand point. Harvard and Centre College will furnish the game Of the day, but the other member? of the ao called Big Three should have It comparatively easy, Princeton meet ing Maryland and Yale playing Williams. An important game In the Weat is the meeting of Nebraska and Missouri at Lincoln, to aay nothing of tbe family quarrel between the two Dakotas at (iragil Forka; Washington and Oregon aggie? at Seattle and Idaho and Washington State at Moscow. Other Western attractions of more or lesa moment will bring together Notre Dame and DePauw at Notre Dame; the University of California und the Olympic Club at Berkeley, and tbe University of Southern California und Nevada at Los Angeles. One of the biggest games In the East la the Syracuse-Pittsburgh af fair at Syracuse. Another ia the meeting of Georgetown .and Fordham at the Polo Grounds for I the Catholic college champlonahip of the East and u third involvea ; Cornell and Colgate at Ithaca, ? Penna will have a fiarly hard teat in Swarthmore and Dartmouth may , experience some difficulty In dis : posing of Vermont -but the Army ahould win under wraps from New Hampshire State. In the South, the games between Washington and Lee and Weat Virginia at Morgantown, W. Va., and Georgia and Tennessee at Athena, Ga., are conspicuous. ? NO SITE YET SELECTED FOR ARMY-NAVY BATTLE WEST POINT. ?. Y.. Oct. 21?No site for the Army-Navy football game in 1923 has been decided, not withstanding recent newspaper re ports to the effect that the service gridiron game would be played at the Yankees' new stadium In New York next year. This statement was made today by Captain M. B. Rldgway. graduate manager of athletics. It Is Army's turn to select a site for the game next Fall and Captain Rldgway said that when the time came for making a choice the Polo Grounds, the scene of several of the contests In the past, would aurely be considered.

Griffith, the Washington magnate, to decide what he wants to do regarding the leader ship of his 1923 ball team. He may name Zeb Milan to try it again, giving him whatever assistance he may in the way of players. He may decide that Zeb Milan proved a fizzle in 1922 and that some new man, preferably a two-fisted bloke, might have better suc cess with the very men now on the roster of the Griffmen. But several months may pass before the president of the ball club need make up his mind. Meanwhile the fans will be able to chatter and stew over the situation, which does nobody any harm and serves to keep alive interest in the game as played in thia man's town. Handling a big league club is?* no boy's job. It calls for quali ties of leadership over men and for experience in the game itself. Here and there may be found a smooth-voiced man meeting with ? success, but always he has an iron hand inside the velvet glove. The ideal manager is the experi enced man, always an old player, j who knows how to drive his men down the st,retch. John McGraw, in more ways than one, ?h the ideal big league leader. He was a great third baseman, possibly not the best, but ranking among the best half dozen. He is rough with the rough ones and smooth with the smooth ones. He knows the game from A to ? and knows how to handle men, big ones and little ones. For several years, in addition to these qualities, McGraw has been connected with the richest club in the majors. If he needed a player, money never stood in his way. The standard by which he has acted has been this: Can this man land the pennant? If he, from his experience, believed the player could turn the trick, bingo, he bought him, or worked a trade calling for thousands to boot. Success was the result. ? Zeb Milan's Case. NOW let's consider the case of Zeb Milan. It was confidently be lieved by all, including Clark C. Griffith, that the Washington club of 1922 was surely a contender. It is undoubtedly true that the failure of the Griffmen to get away from the mark last spring was quite as much of a shock to Zeb Milan as it was to Clark Griffith. Yes, and it also shocked the experts and even the various thinking members of the Wash ington ball club. But, then, when it wan too late, only a club with a lontr purse might have bolstered the weak place.*-. And so the ball club re leased this failure and that and dragged along to a bitter, dis appointing finish. Now Zeb Milan, as fine a little fellow as baseball or the United States has ever produced, may have to be the official goat. It's the ruli of the game. He knew it when he signed up ato manage the club. After the blow wears off, he may admit It himself. Now rumors have MiVj Kelley a possible successor to Zeb Milan. Kelley has an excellent reputa tion as a minor league leader in St. Paul. But Just what he might do with the nondescript Griffs re mains to be seen. It is possible that he might have to be tried to discover. From close observation of the Griffmen for eleven years, and mor especially the team of 1922. we might suggest some of the hundir* the new manager must tak? on the fly if he is to lead a team orer the tape a winner. They are many. Muat Drive Players. HERE are some of th? things tha 192.1 manager of the Griffs must do at the ?Uri 1.?Weed out the loafer**. Fine them for loafing oa hit?, fly balla or on the ba.-es. Release them if they cannot be cured. 2.?Get ? seasoned veteran catcher to handle the pitchers. The club has suffered for this lack several years now. 3.?Compel the pitchers to pitch ball all the time. This is especial ly true of the newcomers. 4.?Encourage darin?/ on the bases, especially that shown now and then by Bucky Harri??. 5.?Put a soft pedal on all con versations not connected with base ball. Stifle the motor car gos sip, the farm reviews, the idle chatter of stajre and go1'. 6.?Compel team work, even by heavy fines. This is McGraw's method and it cannot be beaten. 7.?Drive the players and drive the team from the first game to the last. Even the present roster could do wonders under such ? system. Griffith Should Help. CLARK GRIFFITH should help his manager in accomplish ing some of these needed improvements. For instance, he would have to be consulted when it came to dropping some loafing player, and the 1922 team had them. It is up to him to get that catcher-coach to handle the young pitchers, or even the reg ulars on the days they are not called upon. Zeb Milan was given the whole hearted support of President Griffith this year and very likely the 1923 manager, whoever he may be, will fare likewise. But the 1923 leader must be a leader and a driver or the present col lection of players will end no where. They lack the fire that belongs to a winner. The principal drawback to Milan's success was his long con nection with a losjng ball club. \ manager coming from a pinch i.ack club can work only as he aiiowk and he would be floored by the possibility of spending nioney. Milan has never been with a pennant-winner. We don't know who will man age the Griffmen of 1923, nor do vo especially care. Somebody will have the job and we'll prob?? ably be out there looking at the drames, no matter who manages or who plays, either. And if we're not, what of it? Fens Are Interested. WASHINGTON fans, though, are greatly interested, judging from their letters to this desk since the 1922 Griffs went to pieces. In some weys we think Wash ington fans are all entitled to medals for enduring heroism. Year after year, particularly in the National League, they have supported weak ball clubs. . Clark Griffith has greatly improved that condition, but the ultimate vic tory is yet to be achieved and if Mike Kelley can bring a pennant to Georgia avenue, he is to re ceive all support possible, not onlv from fans but from Clark Griffith himself. And if Mike Kelley can't be obtained, It is up to Clark Griffith to get somebody who can. Washington fan? hav? suffered Mastiff and Terrier of Foot ball Clash Today for Last Time. By DAVIS J. WALSH BOSTON. Oct. 21?Harvard and 'Centre College, the Mastiff and the terrier of collegiate football, will ?rapple to the death within th?? state ly confines of the Harvard stadium his afternoon. It will be the third meeting of the teams; likewise the laet, for Harvard ia pledged to the Big Three to engage in no more in tereectional games after the carren*? season. Therefore, the Maatiff will go out after the Terrier, tooth, nail and hide. It has no particular desire to represent the cor|>se at an interse?.?? tlorial Inquest. Neither does It care very much about loaing the odd game of a terminated stries, in which honors now stand at one-all. The Praying Colonels first came to the stadium in 1*20 behind the greai eat ball> lion a small timer ever re ceived. They split wide apart in the second half after holding Harvird ? a 14-14 tie at half time, and were ?eaten. 31 to 14. but Bo McMlllin aad Red Roberts made a two-man Job of defeating the Crimson, ? to 0 laat year. Never any more than a two-man proposition. Centre haa been reduced to a alngle atar baala this year, and Harvard la being favored to win at odda ranging aa high as 8 to 5. Rob erta is hack at the head of the Ken tucky outfit, but McMlllin has gone and with him much of the punch ani strategy. In McMillln's place at quarter hack Is one Covington. said to he something of a bnll runner, but lack ing McMillln's Judgment in running the team, also his accuracy <n pass ing. Centre ia long on veteran material, Snoddy. Tanner, Shades.?. Oody, Ru bale, Rubarth and Bartlett. but thev are no better than they ever will bo. It la not likely that they will get very far behind a real defensive lln *, Harvnrd has built around Grew. Hubbard and Clark, assuming that the latter will be able to start at cen ter. Neither do they figure to break up the offensive of the Crimson's all-star backfield. featuring Owen. Buell, nnd Coburn. nor the subtle overhead attack of Buell to Pitts. MOHAWK AND BROOKLAND TEAMS READY FOR FRAY Some swift action Is expected at I'nion Park tomorrow when the crack Mohawk and ambitious Brnox? land teams clash In their second annual football contest. Play sturt at 3 o'clock. Brookland counts the Mohawk gamo aa its major engagement of tho season and has made prepar ations accordingly. Hobey O'Menra, former Mohawk captain and now leader of the Brookland team, today declared his team fit to give the Mohawks more than thai* probnbly bargain for. His team will be heavy If not heavier than the Mohawks and it Is well drilled. Stiff work-out? lately have ?hown the Brooklanders to be in far better shape thnn they were In Varly gamea. long. They are to be pardoned for losing their tempers and rid ing the gang on the ball field. Down at heart they are sore, not so much becauae they have seen bad games, but because to them it appears merely the punishment that must go to Washington and a Washington ball club. If Clark Griffith can wake a winning ball club, it ia distinctly up to him to do so. And if he succeeds, he won't have to worry about receiving th? support of Washington fan?. That'? the trouble now. Wash ington fan? want something to support. BIG THREE PACT KILLS HOPE OF REVENGE ON WESTERNERS By DAVIS J. WALSH. NEW YORK, Oct. 21.?With one of its merobera already defeated in a big intersectional game, another hooking up a fast and dangcr ou_ rival, and a third facing almost certain defeat today, Harvard, Yale and Princeton, the entente cordiale of collegiate football, arc beginning to regret the agreement that call? for them to drop inter sectional games after the current season. Yale, beaten, rather convincingly??] by Iowa last Saturday, would most certainly like nothing better than another fling at the Hawkeyes. Yet the Blue Is bound by agreement to drop the matter, as Is, and no mem ber of the Big Three Is given to that sort of business. They may prate of taking early season games "ln their stride?," but you will notice that once defeated, they are loaded for bear the following year. That is the case at Harvard today for the Centre College game. The Colonels pulled out the decision ln 1921, but they will have to be a much better football team to repeat the performance today. Harvard will be shooting with both barrels. Consider nest the plight of Princeton, which hss to travel all the way to Chicago next week Just for the sake of an almost inevitable boating. It will be the second In succession for the Tigers at the hsnds of Chicago, but they are pledged to drop the series, never theless. The writer would like to sit in st a meeting of the athletic council at Princeton this winter and hear what some of its members have to say about letting the honors remain In the Middle West forever and always. They die hard in the Big Three. Last year a good Princeton team was beaten impressively by a better Chicago team, and neither alibi nor post-mortem was necessary. But .E POTOMAC LAD CHftCKATTITLE I ? Champion Leaves New Orleans Without Giving Cause for Canceling Race. NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 21.?Oran vllle Gude. Washington's entry In the special match race with Hoover for the world's sculling championship, was d'Hii'd his chance at the, title yesterday, when Hoover, the title holder, pulled stakes tor Duluth? without divulging a real reason for leaving. Hoover arriv??d In New Oilcans Wednesday with his shell and Thurs day night informed the athletic com mittee of the American Iicgion that he would be unable to ?-at.? Gude, owing to the fact that ti" was forced to leave for home. The Washington delegation, which had banked on seeing Hoover whip ped by ?'ml? was somewhat put out. Executive officer Horton made repeated efforts to reach Hoover, but he could not he located. A match race was arranged between Gude and two 1oc;?l oarsmen, but Gude was so far In th?? li-ad it the half mile mark, that they both pull ed hack to the float Gude and the members of the Potomac Boat Club went to cons tier able expanse to meet Hoover and the champion's pulling out ln the last minute after coming all the way from Duluth with his shell. Is not relished by locnl legion officials. McQuillan in Box. Hugh McQuillan, not satisfied wii h his world series profits as a member of the Giants, is down to pitch for a New York semi-pro team tomorrow. Princeton Is going West this yar with what Is probably its weakest outfit since 1916, and regardless of what the Maroon may have, it la likely to be ample? sufficient and enough. They s>e having the time of their spotted existence down ln the Jersey town to muster a quarterback to re place Don Lourie, and to date Gorman, Eu wer and others have been' tried without success. The lateat Is Dlnsmore, who may or may not be the man they seek. At any rate, it Is not tbe best of business to enter a big intersection..! game with an uncertainty playing quarter back. To date Coach Boper has had so much trouble with his defense that he has been forced to let the attack take care of Itself. In this he was most fortunate sgainst Colgate when Cleaves Intercepted a forward pass and ran some sev enty-nine yards for tbe winning score. Offenfrtvely the Tigers showed nothing beyond the fact that ?'leaves haa possibilities as a ball runner, and that Snively, a reformed end, can be brought out of the Une to hurl a nasty pass. Defensively, the end? are none too good and Dickeneon and "Pink" Baker, are the only forwards of ex perience. The Immediate prospect as viewed from the International ajigle, ia not a prepossessing one for the Big Three. Harvard alone seems to be in a fair way to retain ita prestige, but that la not aurprlatng. Harvard gen erally managea to take care of Itself. MICHIGAN AND OHIO STATE WILL DRAW 65.000 FANS COLUMBUS.
