iMipire Gives
Details of the
Play in Question
( iiy Spencer Boise, Umpire of the \
11 i s niarck-Mi not ga '■ lie^.
The discussion over the score in
<he Minot-Bisnuirck football game 1
Saturday resulted from a play about 1
the middle of the second quarter,'
When the Minot team executed what 1
was formerly known as an onside
kick and recovered the ball behind j
Bismarck’s goal. 1
At the time the play was executed
the umpire questioned the legality of i
the play hut was not suppoited by j
the head linesman or the referee, the
referee seating that he hud officiated
in the Minot-Devils Lake game the
week previous, in which tiic piay was :
used, and he had talked with the
Minot coach before the game, and
thev had decided the play was legal. I
At that time the captain of the
Minot Team stated the play was one:
which had been taught his‘ cif.ch by
Knute Rockne at ltockne’s summer
school for football coaches, and was
formation llockne was using
this’ summer.
Between halves the officials went
through the rule hooks in an enden- '
yor to find a rule which would legal
ise the formation, and upon failing 1
to dd so, called the attention of both
coaches to the play and asked the;
Minot coaches to find the particular [
section of the football rules upon
which the play was based. The |
coaches were unable to locate such a i
rule.
After the game a 11)23 rule hook
was located and in. the summary of
the changes for the rules for that
year, we find the following state
ment: "The Buie's Committee in
changing Rule 18 has eliminated the
last vestige of the onside kick. It
now makes n<> difference whether ;.he
player recovering the ball was behind
the kicker at the time the hall was
kicked as no man on the kicking team
can recover the ball until it has been

I Michigan’s only chance to score
came late in the thin! period. Fol

the Purple hark to, their own eight

went into a huddle, a lengthy huddle.
Then Lewis dropped back of his own

It was a brainy piece of business

for Northwestern. The play unques

FALSE IMPRESSION
I see where llabo -Ruth jplipits
that the total of his folly and ex
travagance over a period of abou L 1U
years runs him one-half million dol
lars.
That seems like a lot of. money to
gi t rid of in so short a space of time*
but 1 don't believe llabe has exag
gerated the. amount in the least. I
am inclined to think his estimate
rather conservative,
People who see Buth only on the
ball field often get the impression
that he in rwcll headed. The Babe
has bis Faults, like, all human beings,
but being chesty is,not one of .them.
Throughout his career-George: Her
man Ruth has been Babe Ruth’s
worst enemy. Money wus made to
spend, has always been the Babe’s
motto, working on the theory "easy
come, easy go,”
That was when Babe was breaking
home run record#, Iras baseball’s
greatest gate attraction.- Illness and
injuries .kept Ruth -fro’m doing very
much in the home 1 run-line last sea
son. As a result his popularity
waned. . .
" ; * •. «
Mow that things arc breaking bad
ly the Babe is saving the error of
his ways and has derided to reform.
Good idea,- iw hrs $52,900 contract
has only a year to go.
SOFT PICKING
Babe admits that he has lost $125,-
000 in gambling. I think twice that
amount would come closer to being
correct. ■
Now ltuft the Babe • lias made a
confession of. his mistakes, jn a. ar
ticle in Collier’s, in which be says
he has been the sappiest of sjaps, it
is telling no ,secrets• (i.ut oft school
to relatq.a littlq Incident that once
came up in. a game at Chicago.
In trying to 'beat the races SSOO
v.as a piker bet tfor Babe. Usually
his wagep on any horse he believed
had a ehaipce to win w&s SIOOO or
more. T,- gtressv the; biggest bet he
ever tried .to' make was SIO,OOO on a
very hot tip that was given him.
The New York club was playing in
Chicago at the time and I happened
to be one of- th<* umpires in the se
ries. Before the start of the game
Ruth had put commission of
SIO,OOO .on , the particular race.
. When « fellow kw ten- grand, w
they say on Broadway, riding on a
single race, it in a difficult matter to
kn'p one’s 1 mhtd on baucball. It
later so proved. .
•g # •
KNSIDE S’RJFV'
■Ruth had given, the tip. to sev
eral other members of the cluh,' and
a player no longer with the -Yanks,
had bet SIOO on, lluth’s choice.
In the seventh innjng qf the gome
which was, hard fought, r, Ruth, the,
first man up, (singled to center. New
York was a run,bol»ind at, tha time.
As he reached- first base, another
New York player ran over to the
concher, who happened, to be the
plpyer ~w.ho lwid ibet the hundred
bucks and whispered something in
his ear. .. : ...... ■;
l naturally figured'’he was getting
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1925
sqmc managerial instruction to give j
Ruth, as to what play was going
to be pulled. The eoaeher much ex- 1
icited didn’t do anything whispering, j
j but in a voice that f could plainly;
hear shouted:
! “Babe, that horse won breezing." |
** * i
j “What wax th«\ price?” asked
! Ruth in a voice that made it appar-!
j ent he was much interested.
“KAYOES BABE”
| “He was a G-l shot, replied the
coach.
. “Then I won $00,000,” fairly yell- j
led the now thoroughly excited Babe. J
' “Not much, they only placed
I R4OOO of your bet.” That, of course, j
; was a sad blow. It rendered Ruth j
1 unconscious for the time being.
| While the Babe was figuring the i
difference between the SOO,OOO he j
j should have won and the 24,000 lie!
actually took down. Saber, pitching'
for Chicago, threw the bull over to J
Sheely at first, who walkdd over to j
where Babe was and touched bin:,
out. My yell of “You’re out,";
brought him to. His mind was on!
mathematics, not baseball.

enough to “ka> 4 o” any one.
MINNESOTA IS
ONLY UNBEATEN
TEAM IN BIG 10
Three Conference Games Next
Saturday Bound to Make
Some Changes
Chicago,. Nov. 9. -UP) Still as
tounded by Saturday’s football cata
clysm that left only one undefeated
team in the western conference, the
midwest looks forward to this week’s
three Big Ten meetings, expecting
anything to happen.
Minnesota, leader iq, the title cam
paign only because its one conference
game was a Lie with Wisconsin, has
a chance to finish ahead or in a tie
if it can down lowa this week and
Michigan next week.
Minnesota Defeat Is lowa’s Hope
lowa, meanwhile defeated G to 0 by
Wisconsin, has its only hope of figur
ing in a title tie in a win over Min
nesota/
The 3 to 2 defeat Michigan suffer
ed by virtue of Northwestern tactics,
the “breaks,” and the mud, is not
blasting the Wolverines’ determina
tion to have a finger in the title pie.
Ohio Slate, cheered by defeating In
diana 7 to 0, invades Ann Arbor this
week, also intent on .figuring in a
title tie.
The most ambitious contender is
Northwestern. Its last Big Ten op
ponent is Purdue this .week and the
Purple is sure it can wig. North
western’s single defeat, by Chicago,
puts it in second plnqe with Michi
gan and lowa in the title standing.
Purdue’s 2 to 0 win over Franklin
may have a efT«\t on the Ber
linmaker, down in each conference
start so far.
Dartmouth At Chicago
The iiiterueetidnal flavor of the
week-end program is . lent by the
I)arUuouth-Chicago gapie here and
Carnegie Tech-Notre Dam,* at South
Bend. _The Eastern invasions of both
Chicago and ltolknemen resulted dis
astrously, On their own field they
may return/the couijdimcnl. to the
eastern visitors.
The swan song at home of Kgd
Grange, mighty Illinois leader, comes
in the Wabash game in the Illinois
Memorial Stadium, if he plays. He
may,he saved for the Ohio State game
next, week in Columbus, where he
winds up his conference gridiron
career. Indiana meets Rose Poly and
Wisconsin entertains the Michigan
Aggies in. other non-confercuces tilts.
