In short, he's one of the greatest all-around stars that has been seen in the east in many years. Charles Barrett, of Cornell, who was our selection as All-American quarter back last year, has cinched the job again this year. There are other great quarterbacks operating at the present time in the U. SL A, but Mon sieur Barrett stands out conspiciously alone. Content Por Center. There's a merry little three cornered fight on for the mythical Job of All American center. The battlers are Peck, of Pittsburg. McEwan, of the army, and Cool, of Cornell. The first two battled, for the honors last year, and McEwan won out by a slight margin. He got more votes than did Peck, but it was predicted at the time that another year of experience for Peck would en able him to pass McEwan in the race. Peck surely has developed. McEwan has shown up in fine style, too but with a poor team behind him he is not shining so brilliantly as last year. Cool is a sterling player and has been one of the big factors in Cornell's great showing, but he is rather light. That's his big handicap. Candidates For Guards.

Practice in fundamental football, with a long signal drill, formed the workout of the Yale football team here Thursday in preparation for Saturday's game with Princeton. Guernsey, who will do the punting, lifted high spirals for an average of 56 yards, and he also prac ticed drop kicking with good success. John W. Minturn of Syossett, L.

Graham is still a young ster but has the makings of a star flinger. He has "a little of every thing," as one batter put it, and tops it off with a cool head. He doesn't get rattled in the pinches and it has been his headwork as much as his throwing that has put him in the I iront rans oi toe soiaier piicneis. Graham still has a few things to learn, but feareful coaching and a good catcher will make him quite good enough to hold his own in class B baseball next season. He may not be the sensation' that he was in the. Army" league but he is good enough to win the mx-jority of his games and that's aH any manager can ask these days.

Many humorous tales are bejng told of the late Ed Duokhorst, the heavi est man who ever contended for ring honors and who weighed around SM pounds at the time of his death. While visiting his old manager Matt GlaSer in this city last spring the pair walked Into a cafe1 and ordered a couple oi sanawicnes. wnen the bill was i presented to Glaser the cost of Ed's . sandwich was SO cents. "How's this," I asked Matt of the proprietor. The hotel man then explained that he -did I not think an ordinary sandwich would 4 appease ru a appetite so ne maae mm a three star special. "All right," said Matt, "the next time I drop fa I will bring a jockey with me and get a cut price." While showing in New . York Dunk horst wanted to treat himself to a good night's sleep in the swellest hotel In town. He got a tit room and went to bed. During his slumber the bed broke down. Kd sent In a call for help and the clerk called htm up on the phone. "Send for a conveyance. I shall leave the hotel at once." shouted Kd. In a short time Dunk was dressed and down in the office. "There's your cab," said the clerk as a bic piano truck drove up to the door. Thanks," said Ed. as he dashed out and hopped on the truck. The driver took his load of human freight to a nearby hotel, much to the amusement of the fighter. , In a small Indiana town several years ago Ed got into a dispute about a contract with the manager. The house wanted to cancel his turn but Ed would not be bluffed and went to his dressing room to prepare for the stage While dressing the chief of police walked into the theater and hunted up Dunk to serve the warrant. He found Ed in the dressing room. The chief was a wee bit of a fellow and looked like a messenger boy in uniform When he handed Ed the warrant the latter opened it as though it were a telegram. Then he tore It up and turning to the chief handed him a dime and shouted. "No answer, boy." Ed started to walk ovei a railway tnestle one time, when the night watch man halted him.

' CILVER CITY Normals play the high school football team at Rio Grande park on Saturday afternoon. The recent defeat of the university of Arizona by the Normals and the fact that the Tigers held them to a-10-7 score makes the coming game one of great interest to the local fans. The game starts at 2:30 odeck and a big crowd is expected to attend. A H. ELMORE, general manager of the Oakland Auto Sales com pany, has just returned from a visit to Silver City and 'reports that all the dealers there, their staffs and families will be in El Paso for "Auto mobile Week" while it is expected that the majority of the motorists there will make the trip. Many motor parties are beint arranged in the raining city. The more the mer rier for "Automobile Week" is going to be a real hummer. in the face when the bridge starts to bend." While giving exhibitions with the gloves through Indiana several years ago Dunk was booked to meet 1 negroes in the same rug in a sort or battle royal. When Sd got into the ring one of the sous of Ham shouted: "Ileah cums de debIL" The blacks started to run around the ring like sheep and got Ed all out of breath. Becoming desperate, be threw science and rules aside and knocked out .lis 14 opponents within halt a minute by catching each and every one by the nape of the neck and holding them while he dropped them to the floor with a knockout punch. While visiting here a couple of sea sons ago Dunk walked Into the hotel where he was stopping and started to enter the elevator. The old negro In charge looked him over and then started to leave. AVhere are you go ing?" asked Ed. "I am in a hurry to get to my room." Tm going home." said the black man. "I done lost ma courage. Dat elevator won't hold us both.' One time Bd sent his show clothes to the laundry, and when the bundle was returned several of his shirts were missing. Dunkhorst called up the place and made a kick.

"We tore one of them trying to get It through the wringer and had to send it over to the tent factory to get it mended." When Terry McGovern was In his prime Dunkhorst went into his dress ing room one night to pay a visit. Ed squatted down on a trunk on which was resting Terry's derby hat. He rushed it like an egg shell. Terr) let out an awful roar "That's all right." said Ed. "Just run around the corner to the big hat store where the actors buy their hats and tell the manager to give you one on my account. Terry was soon back from the store. "Didn't you get your hat?" asked Dunk. "1 should say not.' cried Terry.

MAROON MAINSTAY IS FORCED OUT OF TEAM Chicago, IIL, Nov. 12. Maroon hopes for a football championship were dropped to the freezing pointy when, as the University of Chicago squad started for Minneapolis, news was confirmed that Harry Flood, coach Stage's full back and chief line pi-inger. could not take part in the game against Minne sota next Saturday. Failure to maintain the standing in his classes requisite for participation in athletics was gtvfen as the reason. Despite the blow occasioned by Flood's disqualification the suuad was given a rousing sendoff Thursday night.
