Llew attributed his , poor showing to the change tn ell- 1 mate. There is no doubt that coming out of a hot climate Into severe cold weather, as Sdwards experienced last , March, had much to do with his poor work. 1 "It is no use offering any excuse." on M r.lew h.fre leavtne- for the coast. "I was not myself at any time, ' but that is all in the game. I was ; unable to get going, for which I am sorry, as I would- liked to have given the fans here the jrery best I pos sessed. It was my ambition to meet , Leonard, but that was knocked out when I met defeat at the bands of t Richie Mitchell. I want to say also ! that Mitchell ia a great fighter and 1 deserving of all credit given him. I may regain my form In Australia, but if not. I will retire and devote my time to other lines. I am not afraid ' to work and there Is plenty of It in the Antipodes. I will always be pleased to give the American boys the i glad hand in .Australia and lend what - assistance I can at any time."

Tommy Burns. at one time heavyweight champion of America, is not satisfied with his re- i cent defeat at the hands of Joe Beckett. British titleholder in the heavy division, and wants to try his speed once more against one of the ; more aged English heavies. Tommy ' is just on the 4ft year mark, but that i makes no difference to him. He has challenged Bombardier Wells and ; Dick Smith, former light heavyweight cnampion. to a ma ten zor zaou a srae and the best purse offered by any London club. Smith has announced his willingness to accept the match and says he will make it 250wVa side in addition to the purse. Tommy is considering the matter and the chances are they will be matched up, although so far no clnh has made s ma ior tne bout. The oistance Is to be 1$ or 29 rounds. In the mean time. Tommy is giving some assist ance to Joe Beckett, the British champion, in preparation for his bat tle with Prank Moran, of Pittsburg.

New Terk Tribune, Inc.) RIVAL ELEVENS IN ANNUAL BATTLE ON POLO GROUNDS By JACK V BLOCK. NEW YORK, .Nov. zi. rne nnai ana ever-colorful feature of a dyng football season was staged here today when the Army sad Navy met ' m their annual battle at the polo , grounds. ' All of the tlmehonored ceremonies that have featured Army-Navy games of past years were re-enacted today. I The Cadets, with their be ribboned and . he-blanketed army mule, will parade the gridiron. The Middles, with the navy goat, vied with their rivals from West Point In s like promenade. Army and Navy officers of high and low de- I gree. including Secretaries Daniels 1 and Baker, were on hand for the game. There were other prominent folk In many walks of life and official ; Washington wax well represented by senators, congressmen and their , parties. Any the Fa to rite. Army's sturdy cadets went into the contest favored to defeat their An napolis rivals. Those who wager on ; football games figured that Army's record in previous games this season rad been far more impressive than I that of the Middies. Laat fall the Middies asanaged t break a string of four straight Amy vfetorJe, thank to the edaeatcd toe of Clyde Klaaj. sturdy tackle, nhe hooted two ffeM goals nad enabled Navy to trfamph ever the West Painters.

Army, on the other hand, has what Is considered a very powerful scoring machine. Coach Daly has a string of forwards who look much stronger than the Middles, and in French, her rollback. Army has a star whose line I plunging and open field running are i expected to pave the wsy to a vic ! tory. t riaxiag Steee 1803. I The service teams have been nlav- ing football cames since I8d0. In all i they have played 22 times and out of ' this total Army has won eleven games 10 ten ror we wavy, xne contest resulted in a tie. Mo 6. In past years Army has shown a tendency to turn out the most powerful teams. Army's total points against the Navy In 22 games 251 is proof of this. Navy has scored 99 points less than the Army, having rolled up a total of 152. Perhaps the ehtef reason fer the fact that a mafarMy of tao erHtea looked for an Amry vic tory may traced to Army straggle what Notre Dame. The Cmfrt beaten la their an nual battle vflth the "Ffghtln Irish' from HooslertaBd. Vat they pat up one of the gnraest fights Imaginable and aneeeeded tn scor ing two touchdowns aad a field goal against the strong western ers fer a total of 17 points. This, in itself, was proof enough t a majority of those who follow tr fortunes of football teams that Arm has. or had. a heavy punch. Coach Polwell's mainstays, amor,? whom are King, tackle: Captain Edd Even, end. and Watters. a back field er, have been showing better form in each succeeding game. The wbol Navy team, in fact, has been playing much snappier football since tt Princeton game, in which the Midd!1 met defeat. 14 to A. Navy's scores of 47 to 0 against Western Reserve ar-i S3 to 0 against South Carolina prov that the Annapolitans have smoothed out the rough spots that character ised their play as a team in earlier arames and can now go the pace with i machine-like nmootbneas. It makes I but little difference to Xavy how anv ' of the earlier games result as long an ' the team is pointed for the Annj game, and it is pointed. Tne lineup: Army Position.

It has truly been an amasixur season, rjk. nearlv averv other sport football asS reached' the height at popular appeal and general prosperity in the three months that nave Jost passed. Ami yet. in spite of so many recoros ewarrarea. i nnnly believe that next fall will be even a greater season than ttts one has been." The natsral reaction of people, fol io wine the war,' Ht attribated aa the caose for the new Ufa. la sport. I do not delve late the reasons, whatever they ntay be; bat I do believe that football has was a greater percentas-e of followers than any ether sport. If the huge stadiums and grandstands threvsfcoat the esnntry were of greater capacity than they are. I am positive that crowds of 1M.0 and j even lM.Mt would turn out to the sreateet KrMlron mafrties j Is Played Barnntly. One reason that football has earned i the respect ef so many ofjlfons is the earnestness of the men that nisv it Look where yen win. you cannot dis cover a more determined set of ath letes than football smb. They have nothing; to win by their efforts bnt s-lory, yet they play to the limit of their nerve and Dhvmtane. In a word. they give everything they have for the sake of the game. uiaer iponi. aaa praetlenlly nil the professional sport, may have athletes who sometimes don't ex ert themselves to the limit, bat I hsTO never yet heard of a grid iron player -lnjlajc down." It Imply is not being done. Still, this earnestness of purpose I. not the principal reason why the game .has tsken hold with the mob. There Is Just as much earnestness la college rowlag or basket ball for Instance, yet those sports haven't won sueh widespread favor. Z think the answer is In the s-amA Itself. When the great change in rules was made a dosen or so veara ago. the role makers certainly routed Br KDD1E CASKr. Harvard Star. the unworthy phases of football, and Injected the right kind of stuff in their stead. IV .aid Lose Support. If football were suddenly to go back to the old form of praying, with tta mass plays snd three downs in which to gain only five yards, the more spectacular parts would suffer elimi nation in the natural course of events, and I feel sure that public support would be lost. The open game sorely saved the situation for football. Before that eame, the game was chiefly one of nulHng and hauling, with the brawn of the athletes ranking above everything. Xnr, with the forward pass, and many other Im provements, we have a ran. Im I which the players perform In the I open, aad give the speetstors a ehanee to share their fhrfUs. Just as the baseball bug loves home runs snd long hits, so do the football fans like to see successful forward passes, long end runs, and sensational gains, through a broken field. The football team itself knows that, m general, the best weapon ia the straight line drive, bat few team have the strength and power to gain on such plays all of the time. It is ! tne science or lootoail to mix the Plars up, and that la where open field 1 work comes in. I Those rule makers that made over i football some time arn h. rt&hmt.l- t i lung it ana giving more spectscular. and less dangerous plays instead, de- srve very large meea or credit. They saved the gttme from the disfavor It was then nttraetlag, and not only tarnished a snb.tr tute attack that was Just as good. - but one that was Immeasurably better. The results speak for themselves. Toward the latter part of this season there was hardly a game of any Importance but what played to rapacity crowds. Football Is progressing so rapMly la favor that even the great punta the colleges boast now-a-days will soon be too small and antiquated. (Copyright. 1S20. by the Wheeler Syndicate. Inc.)

Manager Jack McDonald, of the club team- stated Saturday morning relative to the challenge of the Min ers that he was sorry that a contest could not have been arranged earlier n tne year ana mat no appreciated the willingness of the Miners to play their stronger rivals but the club team had disbanded. "We would like above all things to pwsy xne sunes team ana assist in drawing the athletic fund out of the hole but he Calamus team composed entirely of young business men who must watch their interests agreed long ago to step activities on Thanks giving day and it is their opinion that it should be done." About The Tiger Date. Mr. McDonald further stated that when the Calumus dub was offered the return date (for the third game) with the Kl Paso high school Tigers on December 4 It had to be refused because of the proposed dlsbandment of the eleven on Thanksgiving day. It Isn't that he Calumus team did not want to play. As a re sult the third game with the Tigers was arranged for S'ov. 13 and St ntraeted one of the best crowds of the season to the Stadlnnu The State Sflnes were offered a date during the middle of November with the elnb team bnt it was turned down. Mr. Mc Donald said. "There Is not a man upon the Columns team who Is not engaged In some sort of business enter prise in whleh his help nt the office 1 urgently required," he asserted. 'This Is what makes l the elnb. It ts an organisation of ysuag business men eomMn- 1 leg their interests In an effort to . make a pleasant social orgaalza- lion. That they have succeeded, the game last Thursday after- I noon win attest beyond measure.' Club Mas Retired. "I put the challenge up to the boys and all of them regretted that the game could have not been arranged earlier in the season. For example there are several who have planned a recreation trip to New Mexico, some plan to enjoy a brief rest after the trials of the seasotrand the remainder have burled their noses In the busi ness world. "We have great respect for the Hlaes and we would like to please . Dean S. . Worrell by taking up the challenge. In view of the facts which I have previously outlined, however, there Is slight or no probability for the con test. "It would necessitate more training nt night after the foot ball season has really ended. The Calamus elnb will gladly carry the Mines tesm on Its sehednle next year, however. Dean S. H. Worrell, captain W. H. I Kioa, coach H. E. van surdam and business manager Ray Gilbert of the Mines were particularly anxious to arrange the game which meant much to the Mines finances.
