WEST POINT, N. Y.. Oct. 30—Notre
Damn’s .unbeaten football eleven, always
colorful and never weak, was here today
to tackle Coach Charley Daly's rugged
Army team.
Ideal conditions prevailed for the game.
Crisp, clear weather was the order —the
kind that brings out the best ig a foot
ball player—and Indications pointed to
ward a snappy contest.
Army has not met defeat this season
but no team the future generals hart
played can be comcared with Notre
I>ame, and Daly's outfit was surely ex
pected to have Its hands full.
The Hooslers arrived Friday, took a
light work-out and then “dug in’’ to
await the zero hour. They are neither
the strongest nor the heaviest team that
has ever come out of Notre Dame to do
battle against Army, and they were ex
pecting a fight.
Today’s gome was the seventh between
the rival elevens. Rockne. whoa* work
was one of the features of Notre Dame s
first victory over the Army, is now the
coach of the CaUioi-C3. He ha* developed
a team that excels in the aerial branch
of the game, though It has shown con
sistent ability to skirt the ends end
slide off the tackles as well.
Half Back Gipp Is the star of the
Catholic*. He can pass the ball with
■deadly at-ourt cy. run the euds with
speed, pick his way through a broken
field for big gains and kick with unusual
brilliance, branay, the i Notre Dame
qua ter back: Mobardt. Gipp g running
mate, and Winn, regular fuil back, are
all ground gamers of ability. Kiley and
E. Anderson, the ends, are adepts in
taki- ■' forward passes from Gipp and
Brandy.
Coach Daly noasts a back field with
considerable line-smashing ability. The
Army backs .-.lso are polished in the ex
ecution of the aerial attack. Captain
Wiibide, at quarter; Lswrenee and Rich
ards at the halvbs, and French at full
back, were expecting to crash through
the Notre Dame line today. L. Stori-k
and W fcite. the Army ends, were being
counted on to play their part In taking
pa-*e from the b'cka.
The probable line-up:
PRINCETON ALL SET.
PRINCETON, N. .T , Oct 30— Stlnfrin*
Jjndcr the memory of the defeat haaded
thorn by West Virirlula last fall, the
Princeton Tleers were out to even np
the score aralast the Mountaineers to
day. West Virginia's e’even, recently de
feated by Yale, arrived here at noon from
Philadelphia, where the players worked
out Friday.
Murrey, instead of Laurie, was to dl.
rect tho Tirers today, according to in
formation from Inside sources. Laurie,
It was said, is to be saved for the Har
vard game next Saturday. Full Back
Scheerer was another absentee because of

Fray Before Forfeit
Upstaters Pushed Back and
They Stop Play Over a
Protested Decision.
OREENCASTLE. Ind , Oct. 30.—The
Tigers yesterday met the Bearcats and
the Tigers won. De Pauw, 1; Valpa
raiso, 0, was the score of a forfeited
game captured by Coach Buss’ eleven.
To win by the forfeit route was as
unsatisfactory to the De Pauw players
as it was to the hundreds of football
rooters who gathered to see one of the
most bitterly fought football battles ever
played in Indiana.
The cause of the forfeit was a dis
puted play which cstne late In the third
ceriod. The score was 0 to 0, and there
had been litt'a to choo3e between the
two teams. It was the fourth down,
with eight yards to go. when the Tigers
lined up in a shift formation. It looked
ns if De Pauw would try a forward pass,
but Instead Galloway made a low, driv
ing punt to his left.
Bob Gipssn was playing wide and he
sp:luted for the ball, grabbing it in bis
outstretched bauds, just as a Vaipo man
was about to tackle him. but two De
Pauw players dove into the Vaipo player
and Gipson raced down the field tblrt.v
b>e yarns, being downed on the one-vard
line near the side of the fluid.
The taiparaiso captain protested that
Gipson was not ou-side at the time the
ball was kicked, that is, that Gipson
w. s not back of the bail when It was
kicked, but Jim Durfee, referee, was In
the position back of the 1 ne of scrim
mage from which he could see if Gip
son was back of the Dull at the time
G.nildway booted it, and he ruled that
Gipson was on-side. It was De Pauw’s
ba)!, first down on the one-yard line.
With the chance to soorc in sljrht, I
oCach Buss sent in “Red’ Adams.’the
star back field man of the Tiger team,
who bad been watching the battle from
the side lines; but Adams never got his
chance to carry the ball, for Valparaiso
refused to play. Even after the captain
of the Vaipo team had refused to permit
his team to line-up. Referee Durfee ap
pealed to Coach Keogan of the Valparaiso
ter.m and he refused to abide by the
decision of the officials. There was noth
ing else that the refree could do, but
to five the game to De Pauw on a
forfeit.
Not in many years of football have
two teams been more evenly matched. For
one to win there had to be a "break.”
and that “break" came twelve minutes
after the third period started. Val
paraiso, the team that held the giant
Harvard eleven to a 0-to-0 tie In the
first half, and led Notre Dame by r. 3-to-0
score at the end of th® first two pe- !
riods, appeared confident of a victory !
over I)e i’aiiw at the time the game \
started. But the Tiger defense was of
a type that no De Pauw team ever pre- i
sen ted before.
Valparaiso was just as strong on the ,
defense. The Bearcats from northern i
Indiana stopped all of DePauw’s over- ,
head passes and it was seldom that j
either team could make more than one j
first down.
Jim Durfee of Williams, one of the
veteran referees of the gridiron, known j
In all parts of the country for his fair- i
ness and knowledge of the game, ex- j
Sresscd regret that it was necessary to I
eclare the game forfeited as be would
much preferred to have had the game go
its full time. Dufree had the full sup
port of the other two officials of the
game. of Indiana and Young
of Illinois Wesleyan in his decision.

In 1916 the Progressives were asked to come

In 1920 the Progressive element of the Republican

MINORS CARRY
POWER BALANCE
Each Big League Faction
Strives to Win Over
‘Little Fellows.’
By LCTIiER A. HOUSTON,
International Nows Staff Correspondent.
CHICAGO, Oct. -X>. —The minor leagues,
the “little fellows” of organised base
hall, are going to tell the haughty mag
nates of the major leagues bow baseball
is to be conducted in the future. Al
rhough it may seem like a case of the
tail wagging the dog, it Is nevertheless
true today that the minor leagues’hold
| the balance of power In the baseball
j situation.
Directors of the Ainericm League at
! a meeting hero rejected tbs so-called
I ‘Lasker plau” for a high tribunal of
! three disinterested men to govern base
; ball, which baa been approved by the
I National League and by three American
j League magnates. These directors pro
-1 posed a counter-plan which would put
ite task of baseball reorganization upon
j a committee of nine practical baseball
| men, three from the National League,
j three from the American League and
three from tho National Association of
i Professional Baseball Clubs, which
menus the minors.
The American League directors declare
tba Lasker plan is Inadequate, chiefly
I ause it docs not provide that minor
leagues shall have a voice In organized
baseball's government. They criticise
it also because the men it would put
at the bead of the national pastime would
I i'ot, us necessity, be practical baseball
men.
'1 he minor leagues will hold their an
nual meeting at Kansas (Tty on Nov. !>.
The day before that, Nov. 3, a joint meet
ing of the two major leagues will be
held in Chicago. It is almost certain
that the majors will adjourn to Kansas
City and tho ultimate plan of reorgani
zation evolved In that city.
If the minors appiove the Lasker plan
there |a little doubt that scheme will pre
vail. If the minors approve the Ameri
can League directots' plan, w-hich would
give th* minors a larger voice In the
management of baseball affairs, the Las
ker plan will be headed for the discard.
It can retdily be soon that the minors
are going to cut considerable ice in the
remaking of baseball'* plan of govern
ment.

To Those Who
Stood At
Armageddon
Warren G. Harding, the Republican Presi
dential nominee, had the following to say in
regard to Colonel Roosevelt in an address
made before the Academy of Music, in
Brooklyn, on Oct. 23, 1912:
“I am going to square myself with you
Bull Moosers by stat ng that I have just as
heartily applauced Colonel Roosevelt as you
do now. I have stood upon the platform and
commended him so my fellow Americans, Ws
owe him much for the awakening of the
American consplence. But just the same as
I applauded Benedict Arnold at Saratoga and
did not at Tarrytown some time after.”
Senator Harding
Now Asks
Your Support
—the candidates favored by 90 per cent of the pre-con
vention primary votes.
Progressives now have it within their power again to
administer a stinging rebuke to those who again be
trayed them.
Progressive or Reactionary?
The record of Governor Cox as an executive part
allels the 1912 Progressive platform declarations, with
laws. His record as three times Governor of Ohio ap
peals more strongly to progressive and independent
people. His legislative record comprises all the meas
ures which are progressively grouped under the Roose
veltian classification of “social justice.”
Senator Harding’s record shows him to be a reac
tionary of the Penrose class.
