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

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

rival for the distinction. i
The outlook for next season Is the j

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

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

which city the Yanderblli same will bei

iOiould maintain her supremacy, then;
thesie two would tight It out for the

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.

Islanders Anxious for University
to Send Track and Foot- j
ball Teams.
CharlottesvlUe. Va., January 7.?'
Field und track stars, unwell as afoot
ball eleven, representative of Virginia
will compete against the powerful ath?
letes of the University of Havana. In
Cuba, next fall, if the plans of Umpire
Rigler. of the National Baseball League,
who has just resumed his law course
liero after a visit to tho Island, do not
ailsoarry.
Riff]or umpired the recent series of
fames between tho natives and tho New
i'ork (.Hanta, und during Iiis stay In
Havana struck up an acquaintance with :
ithlotlc authorities at tho noted unt- ?
i'erslty. At the time ho divulged tho i
Information that he was interested In;
.he lecul Institution and Intended to
?ompleto his ia\y course at the end ot ,
he present year. Shortly before he bade
idlou to foreign shores the well-known
irblter was approached by a represent- >
itlve of the University of Havana as to
.he possibility of taking up athlct'c
'Olatlohs with the University of Vir- .
jlnlu. When he was told that the '
lome authorities would guarantoc all I
lecessary expenses to bring tho Amor- I
can athletes to tho Island, he began to '
ook upon the proposition lu a uerlous]
ight.
It seems that tho Cubans would hnvo ;
"tivinia send a football sciuad. as wtll i
is the most formidable of her track i
tthlctcs, to Havana during tho Christ- i
lias recess next year for a mammoth '
ithlettc carnival that, R Is claimed,
could attract thousands of residents of i
he Island to the scene of activities.
Mans, as partially mapped out, coll for
wo football games, one to be played |
"br'stnms Day and the other Now Year.
Pith a track meet In the Interim. Mr. i
ttgler vouches for the fact that tho
Olloge boys would be treated royally 1
luring their stay with native bus:.-.
? rising his claims on personal expert- j
nco. I !
One of the most ardent supporters of
he movement is "fop"' l^annlgnn, tho
?ctcran trainer of the University ot
,'lrglnla athletic teams, who has prom- ,
sod his personal aid in the furtherance ,
if definite plnns.
The matter will be presented to Pres
dent Alderman, as well as the athletic
totnmlttee of the university, in the nenr
uturc, and It Is expected that a decision
fill be reached as to the advisability
if sanctioning such a proposition, i

cut outlook Virginia's chances to t<--|
peat her victories of the past few sea?
sons aro none too bright. However.;
Conch Lannlgan Is hopeful that tho ex?
perience gained 1n meets up to this
time will pave the way to another vic?
tory. As to the outdoor season, noth?
ing definite has been planned ae yet,:
but It In almost a sure thing that tho;
program will be similar to that plan?
ned lost year. Dual mo<UF with Hop?
kins and the University of Pennsyl?
vania are almost assured, while unotl.-j
er three-cornered ntfalr with Carolina
and Washington and Lee Is hanging]
fire. The annual games under the uu-i
spices of tho University General Asso-1
elation will be held the latter part of
April and on u larger scale than ever,
