The Army aggregation desired a sec
ond western team on its schedule for
1921 and the Cadet officials picked Wa
bash as a formidable opponent for early
season play. Therefore. Coach Pete
Vaughan was offered a date and has ac
cepted. according to Crawfordsville re
ports, and the game will be played at
West Point Oct. 15.
Thus does the fame of Hoosier foot
bll spread and even more intersectional
battles for Indiana teams are in the
making, it is said. Gcorgie Tech, us
ually the king of the South, is striving
to get Notre Dame to Atlanta for a
battle next fall and a meeting of rant
sort certainly would be looked upon as
a crucial test of respective Intel sec
tional strength.
With the exception of Ihirdue the vari
ous Indiana colieges have not completed
their 1921 cards, but it is taken for
granted that surprises are yet to coine.

able here are Army and Notre Dame,

New Talent Rushes Old for
Positions on Coach Buss ’
Team.
GREENCASTLE, Ind., Dec. 9—De
Pauw’s basket-ball squad is practicing
hard for Its opening game of the season
with the fast Ein-Roe team of Indian
apolis Friday night. The contest will be
played here and In expected to be one
of the test of the early season games.
Captain Gipson and Mendenhall who
recently laid aside football togs for the
uniform of the court, are tnklng long
work-outs under the direction of Coach
Buss in an attempt to eliminate stiffness
and soreness that resulted from grid
iron clashes. It is thought that they will
be in trim for the opening contest.
GUI. a lanky man from the East Ham
mond High Schoo’, and Mendenhall seem
to be the most promising candidates for
the center position. The Tigers' pivot
position was left vacant by the failure
of Curtis, last year s center, to return
to Ie Pauw. Mendenhall is a faster
forward than center, but he played at
the pivot position during his high school
days and in an emergency may lie shift
ed to that position. Captain Gipson and
Cannon, last year's captain, seem to be
the only inen that are sure of the posi
tions they will play.
Among the new men on the squad this
year Krnmheuer, White, Adams aud
LatighUu show most promise. White of
Franklin probably will fill one of the
forward positions. Cannon will till the
ether. Gipson will play at his old posi
tion of floor guard. The new men not
included in the first line-up will furnish
Coach Rrss with some excellent material
for substitutions.
Kepuer, a substitute on last season's
squad, and 'Tiny' Ilirt. a freshman, are
candidates for the back guard position,
which is worrying Buss at preseut. Kep
nor lias the advantage of one year of
college experience, but Ilirt shows good
form aud played with the Greeucastle
High School five for three years.

Black Drills Tech
Basket Squad Hard
for Franklin Scrap
Black is working his Tech
basket ball men overtime this week in
nn endeavor to have them in the pink
of condition for the game with Franklin
Saturday night on the local “Y” floor—
the feature contest of the season on the
Creep and White card. This game will
be the onty high school battle played
in this cifv over the week-end and this,
coupled with the crowd-drawing ability
of the Tech opponent, is expected to re
sult in the turning out of one of the
biggest crowds that will witness a high
school ganse in this city this year.
Tech students are making wild guesses
ns to who will start the game for the
Green and White, and the general im
pression seenis to be that it will be a
vastly changed line-up from that which
has played the early games. In Wilson,
former Richmond star, who has been ■
working nt the floor guard Job this sea
s n. Ria'k appears to have a real find.
In the Sheibyviile game Wilson scored
all the points for his team hiiU In every j
contest he has participated in to date he
has been the shirting light in the Tech
play. It Is almost a certainty that he i
will start Saturday at his regular post- >
tion.
Hal Griggs, all-sectional forward foi
the past two years, who has been kept
out if th yearly games by his football
duties, wtL appear In the Tech line-up
for the first time this year and b!s pres
ence will send the east alders' stock up
many notches The remaining composi
tion of the starting line-up will not be
known until game time.
Shortridge basket men are also being
subjected to some strenuous work-outs
th's week, as the north alders have two
stiff contests carded for the week end.
On Friday they will take on Logansport,
and the following night, Wabash. Both
games are away from home.

Cathedral will hold places on every ath

ARK IN DOUBT.
Due to the fact that the net schedules

a year In advance, it is doubtful if
Cathedral will be given the opportunity
to show its strength against the stronger

However, Manual, Shortridge and Tech

Detroit Tiger* In 1921.
President Navin did say, however,
that he expected some real develop

may be made there.
Navin offered the Tiger roani.se
ment to the veteran hitter shortly
after the 1920 season closed, but Cobb
refused to consider it. It Is now be
lieved In baseball circles that he has
derided to aicopt, providing certain
details are acceptable to Navin.

1 many who saw It in action as one of the
strongest arid smoothest-running combi
nations that performed here. The Cathe
dral griddera were unable to get on the
Manual, Shortridge aud Tech schedules,
but they played six games and won them
all by comfortable margins. Their biggest
game here was with the Ft. Wayne Cath
olic High, played on Irwin field, and they
uncorked some real football to win by a
21 to-S score. Feeney will have fine talent

SCARLET NEXT
FOR MERCHANTS
Vaughan’s Five Here for Sec
ond Battle on T Floor
Tuesday.
To Merchants Heat and Light bas
keteers will run Into the hardest proposi
tion on their 1020-21 schedule when they
stack up against the Wabash College
quintet on the Y. \lj C. A. floor Tues
day night, but they have been working
hard for the game, are in good condition
and confident of turning the tables on
Pete Vaughan's athletes in their second
appearance here this season.
The play of the speedy Scarlet five
against the Em-Roes Tuesday night in
dicates that they are out for another
‘‘wonder five” record and are going to be
hard to stop. However, the Merchants
are practicing every night for this big
game and will have even a stronger com
bination on the floor Tuesday than that
which defeated the strong Huntington
crew last week.
‘‘Hank” Stevens, star forward of the
Shortridge High School quintette and all
sectional forward last year, is leading the
Merchants this season and Is building up
a special defense In an effort to che-a
the speed of “Snake” Goldaberry. the
1919 all-American high school renter, who
is carrying the bulk of Wabash's scoring
burden this year. Stevens believes that
See rest, floor guard and captain of the
1918 Manual team, can keep close tab on
I Goldaberry and cut down hia work In
tb* scoring department. ''Tubby” Stevens
will take care of the bark guard station
for the Merchants, with Born teaming
with Stevens n! forward and Rice work
ing at center. Rice. Stevens and Secrest
were members of tho city chumpiotishlp
South Side Turner team last season.
BREWERS LINE 'EM CP.
MILWAUKEE. Pec. 9 Schaak, a
pitcher, and O’Mellllo, an outfielder, both
youngsters from the Canadian League,
will be tried out by the Milwaukee
(American Association) team next spring.
SHORTER TRIPS
DURING SPRING
TO BE GENERAL
Major Clubs to Cut Training
Period and Also Have Less
Exhibition Games.
WHERE CAMPS WILL EE
Short training trips probably will be
the order for the 1921 major league clubs
next spring.
Miller Huggins, the’-sa wed-off manager
of the New York Yanks, is the first out
with training plans indicating a de
parture from the custom of long, tedious
trnifilng
Much Duffy, the new pilot of the Bos
ton Red Sox, also says he will not keep
his squad at work for a protracted
period in the South. High hotel rates,
along with increasing prices of other ac
commodations, are making training sea
sons very expensive for the magnates and
from n physical standpoint trainers are
becoming convinced that more harm than
good results from long work in the
spring.
REDS RAN WILD
IN MIAMI CAMP. A
Pat Moran had a lamentable
last year at Miami with his CincljranjM
Reds. During a long stay in that V a sfjX
ionable place the Iteds found time to (j 0
things other than train and it was miuqg
season before some of them reached form^
Fewer exhibition games between tho'
clubs will be staged next spring. While
It bas been found a good way to bring
in money to help foot the bills, the
players object to a series of “one day”
stands. The New York Giants suffered
by their long series of games last spring.
It is also a dangerous undertaking, as
the Y’ankees discovered iast spring when
Chick Fewster, one of their most promis
ing youngsters, was put out for the sea
son by a pitched ball from Jeff Pfeffer,
the Brooklyn pitcher.
YANKS TO MIX
WITH DODGERS
Some few games will be staged, how
ever. The Yankees and the Dodgers will
play around Shreveport, where tho
Yankees will train, and Tris Speaker
wants the l'anks to come to Dallas for
some exhibitions with his world's cham
pion Indians.
On the subject of spring training, It
will be interesting to watch the attitude
of Ty Cobb if he is named manager of
the Detroit Tigers which seems probable
now. Cobb persistently has refused to
train In the spring with the club and
his attitude was partially responsible for
the Tiger dissension.
