Any Iin pering doubt of the popularity of in-ter-collghite football, even under tho revised playing rule. Is removed by the deluge of applications pouring in upon those In charo of the ticket distribution for the big frames of the teason. The demand for seats sur passes any previous record and the various managements are at their wits end trying to devise .some method of equitably meeting the situation. From present Indications the seating capac ity of the various fields upon which the Vale-Harvard, Army-Navy, Harvard-Princeton. Pennsylvania-Cornell, and Princeton-Yale games will be played will be, unequal to the demands already being filed by alumni, under grade and their friends. One of the surprises of the season is the increased interest in the Army Navy game, to be played in this city on Nov. 29. It was thought that with the transfer of the contest from Franklin field, Philadelphia, to the Polo grounds, the 41. QUO seats would accommodate all those who wished to witnes? the play. Such, however, is not likely to be the case, and it is pos Mble there will be no public sale of seats ns was originally planned.

No Public Sale. For several years there h.ts been no public sale of tickets for the Vale Harvard and Princeton-Vale games and the demand from tho;-e privileged to apply for these coupons under the rules of the competing universities has Increased to the point where; the allotments are being curtailed greatly in order that there may be no charge of favoritism. The ticket situation has reached the point where tremendous demand of fers a promising field for speculators. To cope with this evil the various college organizations and publications are Issuing warning upon the subject of selling or giving away tickets al lotted to those entitled to them sim ilar to the following published at Vale university: "The 'black list' is no empty phan tom. It is a real book, bound in hlaek, compiled with the aid of a large corps of detectives and kept in the ticket office to receive and retain the names- of those whose infringe ment of the rules make them ineligible- for further applications for tick ets. The wise will avail themselves of the opportunity to redeem tickets that they do not intend to use them selve, thereby insuring that they will not be enrolled among this doubtful company." .."i,0()() Scats I trad. v.

IT IS A CRIME AM AN INSULT To c - To M)ToO TVxl' Men Arc Put Through Stiff Drill by Coach Metzler Expect Hard Game When They Tackle Ligonier. The first hard drill for the Ligonier game was given the high school .squad Wednesday afternoon, when they they were put through a hard 45 min utes scrimmage. The first team line showed up es pecially strong, stopping the scrub backs before they got started. Coach Metzler switched the first team backs to the second stjuad and tried them that -way for a time. The result was the same on line bucks but on end runs the speed of the first team backs enabled them to make a better show ing than the scrubs, although they were hampered by tho weak line of the sveonds, which let the men through every time. Capt. liowe was out. of the scrim mage Wednesday owing to an Injured arm. The arm was slightly hurt in the games with St. Joseph, and was further aggravated last Saturday in the Lagrange game. The injury is nothing serious, but Metzler decided to take no chances of injuring the member in a scrimmage. Howe will appear In the line up against Ligonier. Allen was slightly hurt In scrim mage this afternoon and was forced to drop out of the line up. He will not be forced to stay out. however, and will be In action next Saturday. Local authorities are attempting to secure a special car for the trip to Hammond Nov. 8.. but have not yet completed arrangements. friars Strengthening for game with locals lloenbauni. a flack From tho Cni erslty of Pittshurgli, to Play With Tort Wayne. That the Tort Wayne Friars fear the Huebners may spring a surprise Sunday afternoon when the two teams meet at Fort Wayne is evidenced by the fact that Rosenbaum, a University of Pittsburgh back, who hai been refeieeing all the games for the Fri ars this season, will be in the game unday.

HIGH PREPARING FOR NEXT GAME 1: 1 i SQ Bean Ball" the Acid Test that is Applied to Big League Youngsters .Manager John .Mctlraw. ence or twice, has remarked, "CJive me a nat ural hitter and I'll make him a ball player." To be a natural hitter is de manded of a man who would be a b!g leaguer, by the little Napoleon. Very few good hitters have been manufactured, although there is the occasional exception, like Clyde Milan. It is notable that the Oiants rank low ad fielders, but in the standing of the clubs, which Is what counts, the team is generally there or thereabouts. Putting's cardinal sin is to "pull away." Many a youngster goes to the big league full of ambition, and per forms like a Jack Glasscock in the lield, after which he Is given the acid test. "Take a turn at bat," says the man ager. The chances are the manager has ordered the pitcher to "shoot a fast one at his bean." Tf the batter steps back, or in the idiom of the game, "puts his foot in the water bucket", he signs his death warrant. Put if he stands up to the plat?, or steps out to meet the ball, pulling aside only at the last ihoment. when he sees the ball b not going to "break", he gets the O. K. of the boss and his education begins. McGraw has made stars of many a norvy batter who handled himself like a, dinonsaur in the held. He spent four years on Fletcher, his sensational shortstop, before Fletcher became a star but Fletcher was always a hit ter. Many batters who refuse to back away rrom a nail coming at their head, have been "beaned" and made plate shy. After stoping a fast ball with the side of his head, the player who can face speed again and refuse to "pull" Is passed as hopeless by pitchers with a tendency to "bean" dangerous bat ters.

Y.f Oct. 30. Head Coach "Charley" Daly began work on the Army tam Wednesday in an effort to whip it into shape for the game with Notre Dame next Sat urday. All hands here realize that the cadets are in an unmistakable slump. Notre Dame is coming at a bad time for the Army. In two games the Army has scored just nine points. True Colgate and Tufts, who have been the Army's opponents in their last two games, are unusually .strong this season, but the cadets' offensive game has slowed up so much that it has become a serious matter with the team's supporters and there are signs of worry imong the coaches who are guiding the destinies of the soldiers this year. Effort will be made this week to bolster up the cadets' attack. The coaches realize it is time for the team to show strength if they are to battle on even terms with the middies in New York next month. Big Navy scores rolling up each week contrasting strongly with the one and two point margin victories of the cadets do not tend to increase contldenee in the Army's strength. The Army's schedule after the Notre Dame combat until the Navy game is comparatively easy, with Allbright, Villa Nova and Springfield Training school c oming in succession.

He has been working out this week at Jack Dillon's club, and is in good shape, not having broken train ing to any extent since he boxed Welsh at Winnipeg a week ago. The rematching of Saylor and Welsh is not unexpected. Promoter John McKee tried the next day after their first meeting to arrange another match. Bronson accepted lor Saylor, but Welsh pleaded pressing affairs in the east at that time. Bronson an nounced that Saylor would meet Welsh 'any time over any distance, and the Winnipeg promoter has forced Welsh to accept or "run out". Winnipeg boxing fans went quite wild about Saylor's work against tne veteran. After the fourth round, when Saylor began to take the lead by his great work in the clinche. the crowd began yelling for him. men, when Saylor dropped Welsh for the count, hundreds of the Canadians rushed to the ring and. picking up Saylor. carried him around on their shoulders. As a result of the unsatisfactorv ending of the first bout, owing to Welsh's claim of foul, and the great showing of Saylor, one of the biggest crowds that ever witnessed a bout in Winnipeg is expected to turn out Nov. 10.
