ORANGE AND BLUE TO
TACKLE VANDERBILT Final Arrangements Completed for Football Con-: test Between These Two Elevens?Nc^vem ber 9 Is Tentative D te Decided Upon. , Nd?hvi le to Be Seat of Coi.flict.' I Charlottesvlll*. Va.. January 7.? Alter negotiations that have lasted over several yaars. It is now an as cured fact that the University of Vir? ginia and Vandorbllt football elevens will clash 'for the Urft time In many years next fall. November i> has prac? tically been decided on for iho date, the game to be played'on the Vahdor bllt grounds In Nashville. Tcnn. The following year, according to plans which have only to be approved by the board of faculty advisers, the trams will clash somewhere In lbt? vicinity, probably on Lambeth Field. With Von derbilt In line. It Is practically certain that one of the three big games that hive been features on ill? schedule for; tho past two years will nrcessurily be | dropped. Whether Georgetown, John:< Hopkins or Swarthmorc will lose the place on Virginia's achedula cannot be determined a: this time, but tho con? sensus here seems to bo that Johns J Hopkins will be the loser. The | Paltlmoreans failed to show any- ; thing like winning iform In the ] jrime last fall, ana arc therefore not looked upon as a real contender. It j may be. however, especially should the J local authorities fall to come to an I agreement with Georgetown, that tnoy 1 -i\ ill be given another trial. Prlncotin | Is still another team that may have a i 7>laeo on next year's schedule. Manager Miner Llls. of the Virginia I 1?nm, has been negotiating with the I TlRtr manager for some time In hope ct coming to an agreement, but this far without success. It seems that the Orange and Plae would have Virginia j come to Princeton early In October for I ? vane, and It Is hardly prohnbie that the faculty committee hero would con- 1 I sldcr a trip for tho team at so early a dato. Manager Llle has not abandoned all hope of arranging a game with Pennsylvania, but should the date with Princeton ? bo arranged, no attempt I would be made to annex another big I game for fear of making the schedule I too heavy. The matter of the selection of a jconch will come up for consideration at a meeting cJf the athletic associa I tlon that will he called shortly. -\1 j though any number of name* have been I mentioned as possibilities. It Is about I certain that th> light has been nar? rowed down to two men. one of whom ! will receive the appointment for next ! year and the other for 101S. "Speed" I Elliott, who acted as assistant coach i 1 ist fall, is looked upon as a nrob , ability for next fall, while Pic? War [ ren. who dlvtded bis attention between [ the local eleven and Randolph-Mncon College, Is looked upon as hi? only ! rival for the distinction. i The outlook for next season Is the j most promising In many years. Bvery man who figured in last year's sched ule 13 expert* f to return, and a nnm bar of newco i ers will be on hand to force, them 10 tha limit for their posl- i Hons. Prominent among tho men who ! are prnctlcally certain to enter n-^xt j fall are ex-Oaptalu Sprague. of lA'ay- ! ette University, who played at W'e-.t- . ern Maryland last season, n 200-pound fullback, and Captain Pelton. from the Iviiwrenceville Academy aquad. Some1 doubt has been express>d as to whether Captain -"Elect Todd would return to college However, the s-peedy back s?t at rest all such rumoi s in a recent In- | tervlew, when he announced that he will return from Norfolk to pursue n j course In law. Pertinent Comment By GUS MALBERT. It can bo stated on fairly reliable authority that tho sale of tho Norfolk lranchtse In the VlrKinln League to Dr. J. It. McCrary, of that city, will not ettt t the vote which will bo cast by that club for the office of president at j the meeting to be held In Petersburg tit the Stratford Hotel next .Monday, j If :t should fo happen that Norfolk i does switch, then \V. I.V. Hradley, of the Richmond club, and one of the three men who oppose tho Incumbent, know nothing about It last night. '?! don't know who Dr. McCrary Is," was Mr. Bradley's answer to u query, as what effect the sule would have ?nI tho coming election "but I think It is a mighty good thing for the league to have the rranchssc puss Into the hands of local men who are known. 1 be-' lleve It will straighten out the Nor-j folk muddic materlnlly. As to tho j presidency, well. I guess that will huve to settle Itself when the meeting is held." All of which simply reiterates what he said and what wus printed in this paper Sunday morning. Just as soon as the sale became known a telegram was sent to the new owner asking whether Norfolk would ? onttnue to support Williams. The re j ly follows: 'Have, bought the Norfolk bull club. Am for the best Interests of Norfolk end the Virginia League." Which Is a mighty nice telegram ex? pressing a pretty .sentiment and am? biguous enough to set everybody guessing. Still r. sneaking feeling is entertained in this quarter that when the vote Is called next Monday on the iiomlnees for president, it will be found that three _-lube. at lenet, will support "Williams, Without being able to confirm the report that Virginia will refuse to meet Georgetown at football, tiniest George? town accedes to the demand of the Charlottesv-IUe school for a stricter ?diglbillty i-Aid ? .tljjc- fact that the orange and.'BVn<-h?e closed with Van derbllt for a game on November 'J, lends some weight to the opinion that the Washington ?ame is oft. Still, it is a question, from a strictly financial i landpotnt, whether such a move Is ?wieti. From official sources conies the, information that Virginia drew down' about MtOOO for her share of the same in Washington last fall Nashille, in I which city the Yanderblli same will bei Jdayed, must go some "r. order to beat; Mich receipts. Still the game will not I.e. without Its compensatlona. The; championship of the South hns always, been a mooted .|u?s''.on because of, the fact that Vanderbllt never met any of th* stronger team; in Uvla section.] 11 Vlrgluiu should happen to play and ?irfeat Otorgttown. and If Vanderbllt iOiould maintain her supremacy, then; thesie two would tight It out for the < liampionship Mid tlicir. could l?c no dispute, However, if the Georgetown .came Ik called off, or If it is- played nnd Virginia is defeated , by both Georgetown and Vunderbllt,' then the tiuestlon would still be unsettled; for Georgetown and Vanderbllt will not Evidently Richmond Collect ?.: ^oiut: n!itad without the Blurs and making rtrre.ngemont for an indoor track niaot J;t trie litt ttf meets which the nnlver > lly's track team will attend h. o'ni to be hold by Richmond College on Ma.rc.li ??. No Information has fain deceived from the local school that ??nnctlon hait bocn secured for this date. at least Virginia has accepted. Th< ? i information from Charlottesvillu goes 1 further, and soys that Virginia's rela;.-j' team will stack up against Cornell.i, All of which listens mighty good, an.l h'-re';, hoping that Larry Martin an'! | his crowd will go through with tli? I meet. Jt should he a howling success from every standpoint. Joe Jackson, probably on-.- of tin best Informell baseball men In the country. h.i* a few trite remarks anro pos of the United State. League. He [ contends, and not without reason, that ? tho proposed organization Is about to consummate its own undoing by fixing up a circuit, strung out over such a : great area; that the profits will be j largely eaten up In railroad fare. That isn't exactly what he says, but It's the gist of it. So long as the organizers kept their league compaX, \tlth trav? eling expenses almost nil, the chances for a successful season were at least even. Trying to compete with the big leagues is going to prove expensive, while bush league ball la hardly going to pay in tho big towns. These re? marks are rrude. not In opposition to I the proposed Iea.gue. because, from at i least one rai son it will receive a cor? dial welcome, provided It brlng3 good baseball. It is simply to bring to their attention some of the pitfalls Into which they might fling themselves in an unguarded moment. Pittsburgh and j Chicago ar* a long distance from Rich- I mond, while Reading Is not a good I baseball town, if the town's record in previous seasons may be relied upon. ! As Jackson points out, when Ban John 1 son and Iiis crowd started the Ameri? can League, they posed as cruf-ndcrs. | 1 with a righteous cause. They were ac I cepled in the fold because they wero ; successful, and now others who are attempting just what Johnson attempt? ed .ind got away with are frowned ujion and put down in the outlaw class. ? Truly a few years wreak a mighty i change. It Is not too late for the mag? nates of the United States League to l .ge their plans and confine them Folves to the original proposition of ; putting out good teams within a com j pact circuit. Time enough to spread i to big league proportions when success j has been achieved. Charlie Dooln, who has just signed a | eon tract for two yens to manage the j Phillies, after calling his boss.
