ARE PUT ON SQUAD
Virginia Now Ready for Classic Gridiron Battlej
With Georgetown?i earn Is in
Good Shape.
[Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.]
Chariot tesvllle. Va., November 14.?
Virginia'a football oquud engaged to?
day in practically the lust real scrim?
mage beforo the Georgetown eciitest.
The workout was a very comprehen?
sive one. a littlo bit of everything
being tried. A great variety of play- j
was used, un<i nearly every member of !
th^ nrst and second squads was kept I
on the move. Stress was laid on the
proper dcfcn:;o for punts and fake end
runs. The offense was also tried out
on almost every play, the work of iho
men being closely watched.
lleud Coach Yancey had as his only
nfsistants YV. Christie Benet, of Co?
lumbia, S. Ca.. a star tackle at Virginia
ten yeara ago, and Elliott. "Billy"
Gloth, who la here to look after the
linemen, was Indisposed, and did not
appear on the field.
As darkness approached Yancey took
his squad off to a corner of the ??eld
for a little secret practice. The men
appeared well acquainted with the
plays tried out.
Nearly all tne cripples were In the
line-up. Carter, the tackle, limped
I perceptibly, but was quite active at
that Yeagcr, the halfback from itatnp
dcn-SIdnoy, was allowed to remain I?
the scrimmage but a few minutes,
though ho appeared anxious for work j
Woolfolk seems to be recovering from
his injury, and Is rapidly regaining his
uaual form after an absence of ten !
days from the line-up,
The only discordant note resulting
from to-day's practice was an Injury
to Todd. of which he knew nothing
until he reached the gymnasium. While
undressing ho found a big knot on hta
' right leg. the member being quite
badly swollen. He remembers receiv?
ing a kick in the scrimmage, but paid
no attention to it. Nothing serious is
feared.
Knthuslasm over the Georgetown
gumo will commence to bubble to-mor?
row, when the llrst mass-meeting of
students will be held to arouse inter?
est In the contest. Arrangements for
procuring the services of the Stone?
wall Band to accompany Ihr "rooters"
to Washington were completed this
afternoon, the necessary sum having
i been raised.
GATHERED ON THE SIDELINES
By Gus Malbert.
Football enthusiasts and statisticians
arc beginning to shake bands with
themselves. At the same time they
are knocking on wood, for tha foot
ball season Is not ended?yet. Reasons
for all of these sclf-gratulatlons and
those handshakings uro that up to the I
preaont writing not a single fatality
has been noted. The men who made
the rules which govern the modern
game should also feel rather proud
of w.hiit they have accomplished. The |
great desire on the part of the re- j
formers was to secure a set of rules
which, while not removing the 'basic !

principles of the game, would, at (he
same time, remove muny of the ob?
jectionable features, auch as revolving
wedges, muss plays, hiking und
tackling when the man with chu ball
was obviously thrown. In other words,
u more open game was desired.
When the new, rules were first put
into operation it wua found that many
apparently Irreconcilable incongrui?
ties occulted, old football men threw
up their bunds in holy liorrur, aud
declared that the gumc hud been
hilled, and that what was left was a 1
mere shadow of the former glory of j
the great American college game. They |
were borne out in thoir contentions |
by the lack of success with which the j
larger colleges were able to apply the
rules. The season wont through ull
right, in spite of protests, aud Injuries
and deaths were tewur. Then the ruloi
committee hold another meeting, an?
incongruities, equivocal clauses, la
say notnlng ot actual contradictions in
the rules, were eliminated. This seusun
not a fatality has been reportod, und
the injuries hat u been reduced to a
minimum. All of which it) a great
tribute to the reformers.
But pt-rhup8 thu best part of it all
Is that the spectator has been u>olo to
seo a game about which he can learn
more, und which is nothing like so j
mysterious us It was under previous
conditions. Now the average man caul
sit through a football gamu and know |
Just what is going on. As a result the
gamu has grown in popularity, und
the attendance at the games is
steadily Increasing. Altogether, the re?
form has been good. It has reduced In?
juries, has made life und limb safer,
uuu has brought the game to a pop?
ular standpoint. Let's nope the record
will remain clean tor the entire
season.
The big game, so fur as fllchmontl j
is concerned, is but u lew dayt oft.
When Thanksgiving urrlvos the Uni?
versity ot Virginia and Ihe University 1
ot North Carolina will buttle for what]
Is popularly considered lite champion-I
mhji game of the iooiijjI) season, 'i lie i
game will be played ul broad Street j
l urk. for the Sake, of the pall Oliv
of tlio gumes und in order to avoid
embarrassing tdtuutiohs lor the lucul j
press, ii is suggested that the man- '
ugers of Lhe two leuuia get togethui ,
now and arrange tor the acconintoda
lion of those whose duty it will he i
lo report the contest. Anotb.tr suager,.
lion Is. in view 01 lhe rule allowing i
I but three men on the side lints, that
u taulc 'ue placed wltnm lhe fence,
preferably on the souiii side of the
I park, and that at this table the re?
porters be seated. ISach manager
I should furnish u substitute, who could
in turn give the names of substitutes
1 put In tiie game, anu at the same time
explain any points which might arise
during the progress ul thu game. This
woiuu prevent unnecessary crowding
of tho sldo lines, und at the sumo nine
i-llow an. accurate,report, of tho con?
test to be made.
It is almost Inconceivable that the
authorities at the university can think
that the pessimistic reports sent out
from Chai lottesvlllo will be bel'evcd
in view of tho splendid showing the
team has made. Virginia has a great
i footbull team, and'oven though defeat
he its share in tho game with George?
town on Saturday, the team will
nevertheless be great, for Georgetown
has uii exceptional team. These ,.?/??
slmlstlc reports fool no one. Obviously
they arc icing sent out because the
coaches feel that defeat is possible
Saturday. However, the better way
, w,ould be tu say thai the team 1*
going to do 1U beat against the hatd
?at opponent tt Will have during the
entire aeaaon. Personally, the writer
feels that Virginia haa more thau a
lighting ohmoi io win, and ho frankly
admits that a defeat at the hands ot
Georgetown will not only hurt hu
feelings, but will be a eevero blow to
his Judgment.
While not stacking up with man;
of the big games, the annual setto
between the Medical College of Vir?
ginia and the University College ol
Medicine, which Is scheduled for the
23d of this month. Is going to be ono ol
those little affairs which really prove
more Interesting than the reputed big
ones. Theso tw.o schools entertain
the highest rugurd for each other on
all occasions except when they appeal
against each other on tho football
Held. Then no quarter is asked, und
none would be given even If It were
asked for.
b'ootball being practically new to
both schools und practice almost tm
pobbibin because of campus facilities,
the men who volunteer to hold up
their alma mater's end on tho gridiron,
take advantage of every opportunity
to get themselves In condition. To
them this gatno Is Just us Important
as that between Harvard and Vale.
They fight with Just hh much spirit
and tho spectator usually gets Just as
much run for hl? money. Bach school
claims superiority, with the old school
being the popular fuvorlte, but It will
tuke the game to tell.
Oi - of Branch Bocoek's peculiarities
is bis silence. So far as be is con?
cerned one would never know that the
University of North Carolina had n
foothall team, lie believes in spring?
ing surprises. Ordinarily on the show
lug made thus far by the Tarheels
ami Virginia, one would pick Virginia
In u walk, but with Boeock to reckon
with one sits down and begins to
figure a trifle. Bocock went to North
Carolina to win from Virginia. Un?
der his Instructions a comparatively
easy schedule was arranged. A'. P. I,
was the hardest proportion bis I cam
bad to tackle, und he came out ol
that unscathed, though not a victor.
Before that game he remarked in on'
of his particularly loquacious mo
ments, that his team would not score,
and that he didn't believe that the
oiber would, it caine true. Lator, In
.... unguarded moment, he lot loose the
opinion that he thought he had more
than a chance to win from Virginia.
H? may he right again. Any way he
will bring a good team to Richmond
on Thanksgiving and never mistake
that fact.
Richmond College is the one hip dis?
appointment of ?he Beason. So far the
Spiders have been unable to ncorc
against any of their opponents. De?
fensively the team line shown strength.
Offensively It has been a rank failure.
Two game.-- remain, one with the Uni?
versity of Maryland on Saturday and
one with Ttandolph-Macon, the week
fdllowlng. The Maryland game
amounts to little, but If Honaker can
Whip the tenm into shape to defeat
the Tellow Jackets. h.- will have had
a success/ill season from the college
standpoint If Randolph-Mucon wins
this ~*me,'they will be the champions
of the Eastern Virginia intercollegiate
Football Association, a thing which
will ever rankle In the throats of the
spiders.
