I Special to The Times-Dispatch.] \\ est italeigh. N. C. September ? .Manager N. S. Dachlcottl, of the A. "d ?M. football team, has announced the following schedule for the season ot ms: October 5?United Steamship Prank Itn. at Raleigh. October 12?Medical College of Vir? ginia, at Raleigh. October IT?Georgetown University, at Raleigh (fair week). October 26?Davidson Colloge, at Charlotte. November I?Wake Korest College, at Raleigh. November o?open. November 1C?United States Naval Academy, -it Annapolis. November 23?Washington and Lies University at Norfolk (.Thanksgiving). 1 Tn.s it considered one of the best schedules ever put out ty A. and 41.1 dollege. The United tstVes training ship Franklin is ah old rival of A. and Mi's ami always puts up a strong light. One of the features oi this game Will be tho presence of the sailors, who: generally accompany their team, about 30i) strong, whenever they come to Raleigh, and the good-natured rivalry in rooting by both sides. The Medical College of Virginia Is1 an unknown quantity In Raleigh, but ' bar. a very- strong cloven, and will make the Techs hustle. Georgetown Is one of A. and M.'s. greatest rivals On the gridiron. Al? though those teams did not meet laut year, they play, d u tie game two years ago, neither Side being able to tcoro' during the entire contest, and each . loam in determined to win this year. I This game, betwen two of the strong-! Csi football teams in the South, com- '; lug as It does during the week of the Stute Fair, is sure to prove a great drawing card. Davidson College has not been on , a. und M.'s schedule for several years, I but the Presbyterians always put out one of the strongest teams In tho State,' having gone up against some of the best in this section, and olton com- ', mg through with tho large end of too i score their way. The annual K?me with Wake Forest win bo played m Raleigh tr.is yc.tr In? stead of at Wake Forest. The Bap- ' lift eleven has steadily improved dur- ; lag the past several seusons, and last year under ihe able coaching of FrauK - r.ompson, on old A. and M. football: star, gave the A. and M. boys a bad scare by scoring In the first quarter, tho game rnding with a score of only: 13 to 5 In A. and M.'s favor. It is said that Wake Forest will have one of the best football teams' in tile State this year, and wnat used I to be considered a practice game by A. and M. will now be hard fought j >? r.ie- ts for the supremacy of the grid Iron. This year will be the second time A. and M. has gone up against the ! Navy. It will be remembered tho scare! the Tarheel Techs gave tho Middles last fall, and they are determined this year to put up even a harder tight,' such r.s will make the sailors from An- ( nui'oiis sit up and take notice. The annual Thanksgiving game will not he played with V. p. I. In 1012. as: in the past, but Washington and DeftI University will take the place of the' Virginia Techs nt Norfolk, and this; contest is destined to prove just as great ah attraction *s tbo old v p.; I. games, as Washington and Dee put '? it o:;e of the strongest football ' elevens In this section last fall, and j the greatest rivalry has always existed between them and A. and M. Coach Green issued first call for foot-I ball candidates Friday, avlth a result' that about forty reported. There Is, some very promising looking material amonc the candidates. Tho first two: days consisted of very Hunt practice, mostly ktcklnp the ball, and running down the field to get the men In con? dition for practice which will be start? ed in earnest this week. The first annual race meet of tho Fasslfern Hunt Club will take place at Hot Springs on September 21.

Of course, there are others who have suc i ceded In picking up these stars of the intercollegiate world, such as "Reds'' Uooln and James McAlecr, but Connie was the lirst and Is the lender of all. He has tried nut and later went to the minors witli a string attached more of the lads from the educational insti? tutions than any other man running x major league club. Whether or not it was the Incentive of the. two-time winner of the world scries, at any rat.-, this year thero seems to be more of that system fol? lowed out than In former years. Then, too, what Impresses one greatly and probably has gained moro than Its, shar? of notice Is the fact that the y?ngsters are making good In the best sort of fashion. In the box tli< y are twirling sensational ball, while the rest of the positions nre being filled handily with sluggers. A lot of nianugvrs aro . . nir.g to think that there Is a deal of truth In the words uttered by Con-' nie Mack last year In dt-fensu of a re-; mark concerning his fondness for the Collegians, when he said: "What 1? thero is the minors better than I may ? v.lop from these college stars?"

Charley Dooln. of tho Phillies, hus certainly ha<l It oonio ills way In getting hold of some good COl lege material. Take, for Instance, the case of Eppa lllxey. erstwhllo Ulli-, verslty of Virginia pitcher. Success in tho fullest sense from his advent In tho National League has attended Hits young man. The Charlottcsville slab-] bist entered professional ranks much to the aversion of his relatives, but ho has Cast aside ull prejudices and gone Into the game with a winning spirit. | A perusal of the Virginian's record win bear out the fact that ho is creating a mild sensation In the older major circuit. The latest record of. the Phillies recruit credit him w'tli having won eight games and lost seven, a rank iwdnty-flrst among sixty-six I slab artists, and a percentage of .oss. , An average of six and one-ruth hits j :t game has been garnered from his do- . livery, which Is not so bad In a leaguo where there are twety-slx batters hit tthg over the .'?iOO mark. It Is inter? esting to note that three of his wins showed the classiest sort of twirling! and were of the whitewash variety. One was a goo3e eng affair in which the. Cubs only got three hits, another a 10 to 0 fray. In whloh, but two of the Uoston braves got so fur us tho second sack, and the latest wus when he b< steel Fromme tn a pitching duel that resulted In a 1 to 0 victory over; Cincinnati. Certainly "there's a rca- ; son" for Murphy to offer Horace G. ; Fogcl something like SIT.ooO for Eppa. declaring at the same time he bo lleved Rlxey to be the best twirier I ho has seen in Chicago for years. Griffith has a pair of collegians, who, whllo they may not be setting things afire, still are about as con- j Blstent a pair of players as a manager j could want. The two In question are j John Henry, of Amtierst, and Joo: Engel, who has made Mount St. Mary's ijollejgo famous. The latter, but a boy. haa taken part In ten games, and Is credited with' three victories and two defeats, Engel has been used as relief hurlor, and ? because of tho grand tight tho Na- | tlonals have been making for the flag It has not been practical to lot tho ] youngster lake his turn regularly. According to one of tho best Judges' in the world of a ballplayer, the Am-j hcrst asset Is the best catcher in the game, and this critic Is none other than tho conservative and usually noncom- I mltt.il Connie Mack. Aside from his good hitting qualities the college back-; stopper is ono of tho few good versa-! tile piayers In the frame. Under Mc Aiecr, Henry often hald down first Ui grand style. The Washington club j will bo able to lay claim to another collegian v.-hen "Doc" .vyers Joins the j team at the close of the Virginia State League season. This big six-footer halls from the Medical College of Vir? ginia. Not All Hoses for Recruit. It Is not nil a bed of roses for the recruit In the "Mf* show," as a num? ber of the university players can tes? tify. "Toots" Schultz, although still j In ftisi company. Is one of those who! have had their bumps. The former University of Pennsylvania boxman en tertd organized baseball last year, and' made a poor start, but Dooln believed Schultz had the making of a good twirier, and tided him over. On* good thing about him. as well as all of the other college players, Is the fact that he Is strong on the stlckwork. For a pitcher he Is batting out a good aver? age of .;?o. Still another of the Intercollegiate stars who assayed to make as good a record In the big league, but failed. Is "Steve" White. For three ?ars he was Princeton's mainstay |n tho box, and last year pitched it to victory over Yale. The Giants gave him a tryout through the latter Part of the season of lf.ll and this spring Clark Griffith carried him for a month, Griff evidently bei laved the Orange and Rlack boy might develop Into a twirl-, er of major league caliber, for he has . a string attached allowing the War.h Ington club to recall him. Mom of tho players from the col? leges enter professional ranks before they complete their courses. In fact, some start before finishing high school, as In tho case of Jack Knlcht. formerly with Philadelphia. New York and Washington, and a youngster the Yankees havo been trying out named George Lowe, who Is but seventeen, and pitched for the Hackbnsack, N. .1 . high school this season. This period when college men ente.r Into baseball for a livelihood comes Just about the time that the majority of all collece men have a longing to ?et outside the walls of the Institution and take up a business, or. In fact, anything that leaves text hooks entirely out of the question. Often this iden of going Into business, especially when it has anything back of It. Is Instrumental In keeping some, from the diamond. BIG. FAT WADS FOR GRIFFITH'S MEN Washington Players to Travel Home Feeling Like Mr. Morgan. J. Ed. Grillo, the Washington sport? ing writer, wires that the members of: tho fast Washington team will return] home after the sebson closes with fat wads In their Sunday clothes. J. Ed.I says Griffith Is going to reward his] players for the splendid showing they have made this season. If he falls to make arrangements for the post-sea? son scries with the Pirates GO per cent of the gate receipts of tho first lour gRmes. which would go to the players, will be made up In another way, It is Griffith's Intention to give the players a goodly percentage of all, the receipts of the Washington club: this season for exhibition games. This.1 it Is estimated, would amount to quite! a sum. and assure the players of 5300[ or S-lOo each at the end of the season. | It is mosc likely, however, that the) post-; casoa series with Pittsburgh will be played, and It Is figured thatl these games, providing the weather Is favorable, will get thi> players as much. If not more. "I appreciate the good work tho players have done this year, and I want to encourage them for t/.o future." said Griffith this morning. "I shall make It my business to see to it that every ono of them goes Into winter quarters with a nice bonus, which will cither lie secured from a post-season series or arranged out of the fund gathered together in playing exhibition games this season. I bollevo in rewarding players when thoy give a club their best efforts, and I am suro that my boys have done all that for me this season." Schools Kendl I? Upen.

BATTLE-AXE TEAM HOPES TO RECOUP - With Aid of New Pitcher, Dr. Parker Hopes to Beat Pepcos. It determination to overcome a bulge of two games counts for anything, the BatJ.le-AXC Champion baseball team or, Richmond will bhow onu of the most complete reversals of form In amateur ' annuls next Saturday afternoon by j taking both ends of the double bill scheduled for Broad Street Park. Handicapped by an eluslvo cog? nomen that might have been the name of the latest soda-water leverage, tho r< poo's, of the Washington champion? ship nine succeeded in taking tho measure ot nr. Parker's aggregation by tho score of 12 to 6 and 8 to a last Saturday. I'ndaunted by these re? verses, tho Real scions of mediaeval warfare will go after their rivals llko' .loe Wood after a new record. With the ! Intention of evening up tho scries and] making it deciding contest necessary. Dr. W. H. Park or, manager of the Battle-Axe team, who accompanied his players to Washington, said yesterday that ho was confident that Richmond would recoup to the extent of one game, and that the chances favored i tt double victory. He sa|d that his players can put up 11 game exactly one hundred pur cent better than their, last two. and that with nn even break ' of luck, which was lacking Saturday.; they can fully redeem themselves. Eight runs were scored by Die Battle Axc's Saturday, a sufficient number to 1 win most double-headers and an ade- j quate supply when tho pitchers are | working well. Moreover. Umpire lid's ' called the second game In tile seventh Inning, just when the Richmond team, had gotten next to Sullivan's shoots and knocked out three earned runs. Mark H?r,r TWlrler. Dr. Parker Is grooming a "dirk horse" twlrler for one of Saturdays games. In the belief that this youth.! whom he is keeping under cover for' the present, will bo able to clear, up' tf.e day's card after Hulcher has put one over on the visitors In the first! ?ncounter. Hulcher got a bad start In the first Inning of his last gam., but allowed the toga crowd only one] run after ho had yielded seven tal? lies In the Initial round.
