Princeton Tutor Got Knocks
But Is Now in For
New York, Dec. 26.—King of the
"fall guys"—that's the coach.
When he develops a winner he gets
a bigger hand than the well known
prince. When his team loses, he's as
popular as "Pussy foot*' Johnson
would be in Havana.
Four (coaches —Oil Dobie. Hill
Roper, Bob Zuppke and Charley
Moran—are eating the proverbial
white bread now. Next year they
may be feeding on the biblical husks.
If the experts had to pick an ail-
American coach it is almost a cinch
that one of the above four would be
named. . , ,
Bill Roper got a lot of mean knocks
before Princeton was willing to ad
mit he had the goods. After the
West Virginia and Colgate games, the
Tigers following began to take about

their tune and expressed their favor

Gil Dobie came to the Navy in 1917
known as the- "wizard of the West.
For 13 years he turned out a team
at Washington that didn't lose a
game. He didn't have much to work
with among the midshipmen but he
turned out a team good enouglh to
beat the Army after lie had led
everyone to believe that the Middies
would be crushed.

three members of the Chicago
American League team had made an

Americans Give Notice to
Twirlers That There Will
Be Changes
Chicago, Dec. 26.— pitchers in the
American League are not going to
have anything on those in the Na
tional when it comes to operating
on the rubber, as all freak deliveries
are to be barred from the Ban John
son circuit, the same as they have
been in the- National league, accord
ing to Information gleaned from
President Johnson to-day. The
younger major organization has not
taken any action on the subject yet,
but when t lie time comes it will
legislate against the artificial means
of hurling, the same as the other
league has done.
"All freak deliveries will he barred
to meq coming into our league," said
President Johnson, when asked what
the American League purposed doing
on the question. We have not made
any definite decision yet, but 1 am
pure that the shine ball, spit ball and
other artificial means of throwing
will be eliminated.
♦♦Spilters to Break Slowly
"Of course, it would bo unjust to
ask spit ball pitchers to discard that
mode ft Hinging immediately, but
they will be given to understand they
will have to/ acquire a new style in
a year's time. Youngsters just break
ing in will not be allowed to use any
thing except speed, curves <and a
change of pace." , . #
The National League has already
prohibited the shine hall, emery ball
and other forms of freak deliveries.
Pitchers who have been in the league
for a year or more are permitted to
use the spit hall next season only,
after which that particular delivery,
too. Will be tabooed.
Last season the shine hall was ap
parently overdone. Nearly every
pitcher with a few exceptions tried
to throw the shine ball, with the re
sult that some became remarkably
effective and others lost what little
stuff they possessed. The most of
them, however, developed so much
effectiveness that the games resulted
in pitcher's contests. The hitting de
creased and a howl of protest was
hoard from the- batters. whose
averages suffered as a consequence
of the deceptive shine hall.

lSy Associated Press
Jersey City, N. J., Dec. 30.—Young j
Chancey, of Baltimore, out-fought j
and out-pointed Johnny Kilbane, the
featherweight champion, in an eight- j
round bout here last night, in the |
opinion of the majority of the New J
York morning paper writers.
Chaney weighed 122 pounds and \
the champion 123. The Baltimore
boxer took the aggressive at the 1
start and although not as clever as
Kilbane, often sent in blows so fast j
that the titleliolder was frequently j
forced to clinch. Chaney took the \
llrst, third, fourth and seventh rounds, :
and Kilbane the second and eighth, j
The fifth and sixth were even.
The best blow Kilbanc landed was j
in the second round when he placed '
a right smash to the right eye. In j
the last round Kilbane tried to score
a knockout, but Chaney fought back J

ond round of an eight-round match
here last night. Tunney weighed 175
pounds; Pearce, 166. The bell Baved
Pearce in the first round when he
was down from a right uppercut to

qualified when his seconds sprayed
him with water while on the canvas.

Reich did well for a minute for the
first round, but took the defensive
thereafter. He was floored twice in
the second round, the bell ringing as
the count reached six on the second

New York, Dec. 30.—Changing
training camps continues to be a
popular diversion of major league
club owners during the off-season.
A year ago 12 of the 16 clubs were
sent to pastures other than those
where their training had been done
In 1917, and the announcement of
plans for the 1920 conditioning cam
paign shows that ten are to desert
the cities where they worked out a
year ago.
The ten changes are evenly divided
between the two leagues. It ia inter
esting to note that only two clubs,
the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland
Indians, have not made a change in
the brief space of three years.
An odd feature concering the 1920
training rests is the fact that the
two clubs which tried out the home
training system last Spring are going
far from home this time. The St.
Louis Cardinals, after a season of
conditioning at home, are scheduled
to work the kinks out of their arms
next Spring in Brownsville, Texas,
said to be the most southerly point
ever chosen for a training camp by
a major league club. The Philadel
phia Athletics, the other home train
ers of 1919, will get into condition
at Lake Charles. La.
May Pick Texns
Official announcements as to train
ing locations have not been made
by the owners of the Chicago and
St. Louis American league clubs, but
it is generally believed that tho
White Sox will go to Waxahachie.
Texas, nnd the Browns to Mobile,
Ala. It is known positively that the
Sox will not return to Mineral Wells,
Texas, where they have trained for
several years past, and the Browns
have passed up San Antonio, Texas,
which cifv has been taken by the

all others scheduled for this season
there will be dance programs. An
added- feature to-morrow night will

The Alumni aggregation includes
all college cage stars, including

Ileek's Injury Bothers Him
From present appearances the
Tech varsity lineup will include
Dingle and Beck at forwards; Wils
bach at Center, and Smith and Frank
at guards. Emanuel and Snyder,
two players who have figured in tilts
with the Teeli Reserves so far this
season, are regarded as being strong
candidates, and will make hard fights
for positions.
Beck is not in iho best of condi

to a football injury which lias been

probable that he will alternate with
