COHAN. (Copyright, 191 by the Newspaper Enterprise association.) I've ' picked the Athletics to beat the Giants, and by this same system have picked the Giants to lose to the Athletics but every fan knows base ball. Reing a fan myself, I've seen too much of it tf take anything for granted. There are as many "ifs" in this next series as there are sands on the Atlantic coast from Florida to Maine, which is more than six. The first "if" is the Giants' batting power. Doyle, Meyers and Merkle have done poorly this season, but there's a good chance that just for this series they will swing back in and tear the peeling off the pill, hit ting harder than ever before. If they do The next "if is Raker. This terror poled two home runs in 1911 and broko up tho show. But hitting home runs, however hard you hit the ball. Isn't always down on the cards. He may not get one this year. No telling where that 1911 mix-up would have gone if Raker hadn't cracked out eith er one of those four base blows. The Giants would have won three games. less fight for second place, won eight to one. The Cleveland so athpaw blanked the Tigers until the ninth, when Cobb beat out an infield hit, stole second and third and scored on Gregg's poor throw to catch Veach off first. Olson, who played second in Ia joie's place, singled to right in the first inning, scoring Leibold. Cleve land won the game in the fifth when, with the bases filled.

Connie will undoubtedly work Schang a lot, possibly give him more to do than both the others. If he comes through, fine and dandy; but "if" he doesn't what then, with Thomas and Iapp out of gear?

Then, again, there's the Matty "if" although this isn't much of an "if." If he pitches that first game will he win. it? He von it in 1905 and in 1911. In 1912 McGraw sent Jeff Tes reau in and Jeff lost the opener. I believe it's a cinch that McGraw will take this as a hunch and fiend. "Rig Six" in to open up the show. "If" Matty loses this starter for the Giants, you can pee what it would mean. There's another big "if" about Mc Oraw's pitching selections. He will undoubtedly use Mathewson and Mar quard at every ehance. But, with three men needed, will he use De- INDIANA FIGURES ON WINNING SATURDAY Present T. U.

Students of Indiana unbounded faith in cream and crimson Ind., Oct. 1. university have the ability of the football team to defeat the University of Chicago next Saturday and already more than 400 have planned to go to Chicago on the special train which will leave here for there Friday morning. The dele gation will be headed by the uni versity band and will parade through Chicago streets on their arrival. The Indiana-Chicago game is the most important in the west to be Played Saturday and in addition it i will be the first game to be played in the University of Chicago's new stad ium. A number of dedication cere monies are being arranged for the event. The game also marks the opening of the conference season. It is conceded by football experts 1 who have seen the Indiana squad of l 10 at work that the cream and crim son has tne best material in ears, and Head Coach James Sheldon, with his three assistants, is working the men overtime in an effort to defeat his old master, Alonzo Stagg.

Now "if" the Giants ffet bick into their game and the Athletics don't there's an Important "if." If Mack has a third pitcher to pick will it be Shawkey, Brown or Houck? I believe It will be Shawkey. but I understand Connie is very sweet on young Rrown. Back in 1911 Jack Murray didn't get a hit. In 1912 he hit like a wild man, breaking up two games. "If" Murray hits as he did in 1911 "If" Murray hits like he did in 1912 well, there's quite a gap between these two "ifs," and it may mean a couple of ball games. There are a million "ifs" in this business, but I believe the Giants carry a few more than the Athletics. You might say. "if" the Athletics don't bat up to form but it takes a Irroad "if" to cover nine men who can lather the tar out of the ball. Rut the bent "if" of all is about this; "If" the Athletics den't win the Giants will, "if" it isn't u tie. FRESHMEN WILL PLAY ON INTERHALL TEAMS Athletic Hoard Rules That Men Can Take Part In Contest Although on Other Team. Interhall athletics at Notre Dame received a big boost yesterday when the faculty board of athletlo control decided that members of the freshmen football team will be allowed to play on hall teams. Up to this time it wag thought that these men would ? be barred from Interhall sport and as j a result there would be no hUl teams, j The hall spirit Is very strong at ; Notre Dame and the authorities will encourage It by permitting the fresh men to play. Although the freshmen will be rep resented by a strong team their sched ule will be very slim. It was almost impossible to arrange game.

The llt the Franklin and Marshall football team played great football against the heavy University of Pennsylvania eleven Wednesday afternoon, and al though Pennsylvania won the visitors crossed the quarters goal line for the first time this season. The final score was 13 to six. Coach Rrooke's team was weakened by the absence of CapL Young. Pennsylvania scored first in tho opening period on a forward pass. In the third period with the ball on Pennsylvania's 15 yard line, Avery .fumbled Simpson's pass and after re covering it, tried to kick but Hart man blocked the ball and it rolled behind Pennsylvania's goal line where Smith fell on it for a touchdown. Jones however, failed to kick goal. Penneylvanla changed her tactics in the final period, using straight line plunges and earned another touch down. Marshall kicked one goal from touchdown.
