M'-: m' 4' $ I a BUCKS MAY GET TOGETHER NEXT & IS If Woodman Hints of aBattle Be tween .Colored Champion N and Sain Langford It is really possible that Sam Lang ford and Jack Johnson are going to get together and shake dice for the -championship of Africa? A letter from Joe Woodman, manager of the c: Boston tar baby, leads one to believe that, there will be something doing as soon as "Lll Athuh" grows weary— or rather the public grows weary—of the stage life. Here is one section of the Woodman bulletin: "The next big fight for the benefit of the Shillabers will be between Jack '.Johnson and Sam Langford. Don't overlook this. This match isn't so ,far away as you may think. I have _lt straight that Mistah Johnsing isn't .. doing so well in the theatrical line and I also know that his financial state isn't any too healthy. Johnson owed most of the money he received out of the Jeffries fight and he will be seeding money rather badly before long. It costs a lot of money to keep up the wear and tear on a flock of motor cars and Jack will have to do some real lighting in order to keep in a good supply of gasoline. He can't make any money fighting Kaufman or Lang, in order to secure financial re-enforcement he must take a chance with my cloud. Of course, I probably will have to make many concessions before the deal is closed, but Sam is willing to get the match. This show will be pulled oft about next spring and there will be a new black cham pion." _____ A Similar Opinion. New York, Sept. 12.—According to Charley White, the veteran New York referee Sam Langford is the one man who can make Jack Johnson extend himself at least for a period of less than twenty rounds. White is in New York singing the praise of the "Bos ton Tar Baby," and incidentally of Joe Jeanette, who was defeated by Langford Tuesday night "I am not saying Sam can whip Johnson," said White, "but I know he can make the champion go some to beat him. Never in the ring have I witnessed such punching by a flghtef n« gam put over in Boston. He is a wonder, and a match between John son and him would draw almost 'as big a gate as did the Johnson-Jeff ries frost." OOAOHTHOMPSOH LIKES NEW RULES Pittsburg Coach Claims New HM Added te Feature of Football Code Pittsburg, Pa., Sept. 12.—Joseph Thompson, coach of the University of Pittsburg football squad—the same Thompson who made Geneva famous In tootball—lined his men up under tbe new rules. After two hours' bard work Thompson said: "The 1910 football season is going to be perhaps the most strenuous I have ever had anything to do with, for the simple reason that we must practically retrace our' steps and learn the game all over. Many of the old plays which we relied on so strongly in former years have now Cone by the board by reason of the new rules, and we muBt think of new ones which will be Just as effective and yet comply with the restrictions of title revised code. "I am confident, however, that the rule makers have not killed the game —In fact, 1 believe that from a specIKiWPiSE tator's standpoint it is going to be even more interesting, it will be a game In which agility and .speed count for much, and as we gradually get the rules studied but and note the possibilities in the way' of trick plays, etc., we will be able to spring something unusual. I have been giv ing.the rules a careful study and can see many good points in them." KENTUCKY TO SOON BE IN LIMELIGHT Lexington, Ky„ Sept 12.—Begin ning with the meeting here on Sep tMtbsr 19, following which will come over fifty days of racing in Kentucky for the largest stakes and purses ever scheduled for f^U racing hereabouts, the entire racing world will turn its face towards the Kentucky tracks. Conditions are such that there will be no racing elsewhere, and as a con sequence practically ever man inter ested in the game will be in attend ance at the courses in the Blue Grass state. The Kentucky Sales company has taken advantage of this situation to bring together buyers and sellers of thoroughbred horses during the meet at Lexington. The breeders have re sponded by cataloguing for this sale the best lot of yearlings ever listed in any single sale eveit, numbering over 250' head, the get of every prominent sire In' the country, from practically every breeding establishment and In cluding brothers, sisters, half-broth ers, or half-sisters to noted turf per formers. It is from this lot of yearlings that the vast majority of two year olds of 1911 must come, as those catalogued In'this sale exhaust the entire output. It thtis becomes a necessity for those who expect to race two year olds the coming season to repair to Ken tucky for this material. In addition to the yearlings, some very useful horses in training have been listed, including two very prom inent stables—that of Fred A. For- sythe and that, of St. James stable. There are some thirty-five head in these two stables, many of which have already performed creditably, while othera have shown winning form and are ready to race. Other owners who ddsire to cash on some of their racing stock are invited to join in this sale, which promises to eclipse any of rec ent yearB. FlltTli I™ Few Scattered Fans Witnessed a Poor Game at the Close of the Season A handful of the more enthusiastic tans braved the elements on Sunday afternoon .for the sake of witnessing the final Pickett baseball, game for the season and It turned out to be lust about as poor as any game that has been played during the summer. Both teams hammered' the ball un mercifully, errors were numerous and the winning score was negotiated in the tenth Inning when Mlnto cross ed the plate for the twelfth time. At the end of the ninth, both teams had nine runs to their credit, and the Picketta were able to capture but two more in the tenth. Alrick pitched for the home team and for the first time this season his work was not conspicuous for its brilliancy. However, the cold raw wind waB responsible, at least in part for the fact that he was unable to get the proper twist on the ball. He al lowed nine hits and his support was strictly punk, thirteen errors having been credited against the team. Mlnto didn't play much better ball, but happened to be more fortunate in the final inning. In this inning Thomson knocked a fly to second base and an error on the part of Conmy was responsible for Gilroy reaching first. Woods struck out and a sin gle by S. Thomson was followed by a three. bagger by Barret. Ehrans knocked the ball to Chandler, who scored an error, permitting Barret to cross the plate. Another error was credited to the Picketts in this half of the tenth before Mach went- out on a fly to right field. Three successive errors on the part of the Minto aggregation netted the home tea mtwo runs in the last of the tenth. Then with no men out and only one run needed to again tie the score, Molstad struck out, Alrick knocked a fly to left field and Hugh Mcllratth was "thrown out at second base and it was all over.

Stagg will commence to sow his 1910 football crop on September 20. The first drill will be held on Marshall field. The date is rather late, so Stagg has been impressing on his candidates the necessity of reporting in excellent physical condition. The Maroon has lost many veterans from last year's eleven and will have to work hard. The Intersectional game is with Cornell. The present method will have to satisfy Coach Stagg, who will be lack ing In numbers and stars this fall. Captain Crawley, who has been round ing up his candidates, is trying to feel confidence in the method while count ing the players who are on the ragged edge through scholastic deficiencies. Two of the veterans who are ex pected to show up better than ever are Menaul and Rogers, halfbacks. Rogers will occupy an important po sition from the first, as he will be in the running for quarterback to suc ceed Page and also for halfback. His rivals for the pivotal place will be Wilson and Kuh of last year's fresh man team, both of whom., are stars. Menaul In Rear Wing. Menaul, one of the cleverest all around athletes in the Maroon camp, made good in the rear field last year when given a chance, and may land a regular halfback berth. He has gained weight and is in top shape. Menaul and Rogers probably will have it our for half, with Captain Crawley on the other side. Ralph Young, the husky Crown Point fullback, who played his posi tion all last year with the Maroon yearlings, appears to be one of the most valuable possibilities just now. If he escapes conflicts with the deans he seems certain to be handed the fullback position without any cere mony. Young is built on the Bezdek pat tern, and already deserves the title of a human battering ram. He show ed more speed last year than Bezdek did in his early days, and Coach Stagg has him spotted for a phenomenal backfleld artist He has been rusti cating all summer and has gained In weight Smith, Gerend, Rademacher, Sauer and Kassulker have sent word that they will report on September 20 in the best of shape. Two of this num ber are In danger of ineligibility, as are several of the freshmen but the maroons refuse to admit the danger so early in the "season. Should the present ineligibles fail to make up their studies, Coach Stagg would have to import players to make up scrim mage teams. Not Stealing March. Stagg is not stealing a march by any means in his early work by cor respondence with his candidates, as every coach in the country has sound ed his battle cry, and is already either In active touch with the men or has his captain on the scene of battle rounding up the gladiators of the gridiron. In the east practice has already opened in some of the schools, with Syracuse and Pennsylvania un der way, and the most of the other topnotchers September 12. In the west, where conference re strictions prevent this concerted work candidates are conditioning them selves Independently and in small squads, and their leaders expect them to report at the appointed hour with all the advantages of a month of hard training and with the new code thor oughly mastere. Hall and Dundgren of Illinois, Longman at Notre. Dame, Williani3 of Minnesota, Hammett of Northwestern, Horr of Purdue, Sheldon of Indiana and Barry of Wisconsin have all been laboring on their plans of battle, and, with the experience of a former up heaval-before them, should be able to grasp every possibility of the new line of play. DR. WILLIAMS AIDS PENNSYLVANIA TEAM Man Who Built 1910 Gridiron Rules Assists In the Construction of Play Mt. Gretna, Pa., Sept, 12.—Penn footballers are at work with new rules, and Dr. Williams has arrived to help Coach Smith. The forward pass, which, has been so much discussed in football in the last year, will be one of the features of this year's game. The new ruling for the forward pass has made it one of the best plays in this year's game. Dr. Carl Williams, who, wtyh Hough ton, of Harvard, got the forward pass and onside kick back Into the game this yqar, arrived at Mt Gretna last night.. He was out-this morning In.a suit, helping Coach Smith formulate the new game. Harold Gaston, of the coaching staff, arrived last night with Paterson of Detroit university school, and Harrington of State college. Paterson and Harrington are both of last year's freshman team. Pater son arrived in fine condition, weigh ing over two hundred pounds, and will make a -good fight for (me of the line positions. Harrington is out for one of the back field positions. The team lined up this morning with Hutchinson, Hellman, Miller and Mines in the back field, Captain Cos sens at center, Cramer and Dillon at guards, Murphy and Nolan at tacklta, N.

Coach Smith, aBslted by Dr. Will lams, put the team through signal practice for about, two hours and then he had them running down punts. Hutchinson and Minds are working well in the backfleld Hutchinson is kicking and passing the ball very well. The formation used in the backfleld this morning was two men back of each other between tackle and guard on each side. It is a very flexible po sition for the backfleld and most any thing can be. worked from it. Coach Smith was very much pleas ed with this morning's work and the condition of his men.

Event to Be Fast One and $5,000 Expense Money Will Help Along Washington, Sept. 12.—Various sto ries are going the rounds in the Bal timore and other South Atlantic pa pers about athletes who may be sent to New Orleans, but the candidates will have to show real class before they make the trip next month. Charley King of Washington, D. C., Grove athletic association, who has done twenty-three feet in the board jump, it about the only athlete in the South Atlantic association who is sure of representing the association at the national championships of the A. A. U. in New Orleans. Royal Gill of Baltimore, a good 100 yard man, who has been mentioned as a possible New Orleans candidate, is not in shape, and will hardly go A Washington man who may get a chance is Eearl Smithson, also of the Washington Grove association, who has done the 440-yard run in 50 1-5 seconds, and has the distinction of having forced out Carpenter at such a fast pace that Carpenter broke the South Atlantic record just before he went to the Olympic games in Lon don. Smithson's 50 1-5 for the distance gives him a good look-in it he shows his best form between now and the time for selecting the representatives, which will be in the middle of Sep tember. Martin McDonagh of Baltimore is credited with having done the 220 low hurdles in 26 fiat which is pretty good stuff, and of having done the 120-yard hurdles in 16 seconds flat, another fine bit of running, but Mc Donagh will have to demonstrate that he is there with the goods and is not flashing. The New Orleans people have put up $5,000 to help pay the expenses of the athletes coming in the games, and have left the selection to the cham pionship committee of the A. A. U.. which will see that the different as sociations pay half and New Orleans half. Dr. D. Elmer Wlber of Wash ington, president of the South Atlan tic, has been appointed by the A. A.
