PRINCETON, Oct. 30.—For the
Princeton eleven today marked the be

work. Only fout- days of heavy prac
tise remain before the Harvard-Prince
ton game, the first of the 1911 cham
rjonship contests, Princetonians who
witnessed the Holy Cross game Satur
day were far from satisfied with the
team play of the Tiger aggregation,
and the consensus of opinion is that
there will have to be a marked im
provement before next Saturday <?
Harvard Is to be downed. There, will
then remain only the Dartmouth ami
Vale games.
There was a noticeable lack of skill
in the rudiments of the game. Satur

The Crimson is a fast team anti

Champion Captures Team Match
in Straight Heats and the
One-Mile Open.
The dosing day at the Velodrome
yesterday was a real Kramer day. The
national champion rode rings around
all the competitors in the professional
events and showed that he was master
of all in any style of riding.
The real work of the champion was
shown when he easily won the team
match race at one mile. Clarke and
Fogler rode very hard, blit they could
not pedal alongside of the fast lad
that calls East Orange his home. The
one-mile open event was also chalked
up to the credit of the champion and!
he heat out the field by coming from j
the rear and riding around the entire
crowd. Donald McDougall showed that'
he will be some pumpkins next year
in the bike game, for he easily de-!
featod the present title-holder, Rlatr., ;
in the three-mile open for the am a -i
The match race was. strictly speak
ing, a race between Clarke, Fogler and'
Kramer. Kramer and Hill, < larke and j
MacFarlaiid and Root and Fogler cbm-!
posed tlie teams that -ompeted in the!
match. Roth heats were won by Kra- i
mer in easy fashion.
The first was a real race at tlife
French style of riding. MacFarland,
who has always been classed as the
great gun at this game, showed up!
poorly, ami was without <|iiestioii the |
•'boob” of the race. He figured that 1
Fogler would start things by giving |
Kramer a race and then that Clarkej
could get in hf a sleigh ride. He was
fooled, for Clarke. trailing along, j
stayed behind till too late and was j
then the third man in the finish.
The second heat was run in about
the same manner. Freddie Hill started
to ride fast after the men had crept I
along for two laps. The rest got busy j
and followed MacFarland, who rode
speedy enough to keep Hill In sight. |
On the bell lap Kramer started out.
He was followed by Fogler, who gave
him battle. Clarke was compelled to!
ride on the outside and put up a good I
race, and although It looked for a few |
seconds that he might win he was lost I
when Kramer started his famous short
The one-mile open for the profes
sionals was the race in which Kramer
showed his metal. He was In a very
bad position at the bell and the race
looked like a sure event for Hlarke. j
John Bedell, who hud gone out to make
a "steal" of the race, was about twenty j
yards to the good (’larke was the lad !
that set sail after him and made the
rare interesting. When the gong j
sounded Clarke was leading. Kramer
was near the last of the hunch, on
the last turn Kramer come out an I i
with a burst of speed shot across the
line a winner
Jimmy Hunter, better known as the j
"Dare Devil," lived up to his reputa
tion in the two-mil:- motor race \\Hh
Charles Turville. The start of the
race found Hunter twenty yards to
tlic had, but he put on Just enough
"juice" to get on even terms with his i
competitor on the second lap. Then >
thf? race was a good one. Hunter wa. 1
satisfied to allow Turville to lend nil I
the way. and when the hell tolled *»ff
the final lap Hunter just let out i
enough to heat Turv-lie.
The two-mile handicap for the money- 1
chasers was interesting, devpite trie'
fact that the hig guns were not en
tered. Ernest Jokus was the winner
and he deserved the race, for he rode
hard and did all he could to make the
race interesting. Fred Jones, who took j
second nvuv-y, wabbled from one side J
of the .rack to the other In his efforts j
to bag first money. The Invitation |
affair, at one mile, was a murJetono j
affair and was won by John Bede1!, |
the real class of the race.
The third-mile upm for the amateurs
was a race, built i * order for Donald
McDougall. the speedy amateur. Fra:*:
Blatz, the amateur champion, was in
the final, but th<- best ho got was*
fourth. Cheater Smith ga^o the lari a
battle, but was defeated In the last
few yards of the race, when McDougall
shot across with a hefty kick

pures was cornered by Carl Ericson.
who had eery sailing. This event was j
a real contest, for the baek-mrrkers
were compelled to make up considerable
distance on the men who allowed
liberal handicaps.

The Celtics and Thistles, of Philadel

the Wissinorning teams were the other

After struggling for an hour and a
halt at Wiedenmayer's Park yester
day afternoon the Seottlsh-American
Fall River Rover contest was a dead
issue, both teams scoring once, and
the replay will have to take place at
Kail River next Saturday. The defen
sive work of both teams was espe
cially brilliant, and the Rovers had to
pul UP a stiff game to prevent the
Scuts from scoring with the wind at
their backs in the first half, Esplln

Nothing of Speculating and
Wants to Be Cleared.
CHICAGO. Oct. 30—Aroused by the
publication of reports quoting B. B.
Johnson, president of the American
League of Baseball Clubs, as having
more or less direct evidence connecting
the New York National League Base
ball Club with the alleged furnishing to
ticket scalpers of a supply of tickets to
the world's series games, President
John T. Brush, of the latter club, has
made public a letter to Johnson defying
him to proceed with an Investigation.
The letter follows:
"Dear Sir:—My attention has been
called to a recent newspaper article at
tributed to you to the effect that eight
or nine thousand tickets for the recent
world’s series were given to speculators
by the New York Club at an advance
of $1 the ticket: that while you exoner
ate me personally, the article states
that you know the essential facts and
would investigate the scandal, If you
had the sanction of August Herrmann
and T. ,T. Lynch.
"As the public has heard a great deal
of late concerning speculators, ticket
scandals, investigations and the expul
sion of the New York Club front the
National League, T wish to say to you
that you need not wait one moment for
ihe consent of Messrs. Herrmann and
Lynch in beginning an investigation, so
I far as the New York Club is concerned.
"You have my consent and may have

One of the problems Joe McGinnilf

Joe Agler's shoes. Tf plans which are
now being discussed are successfully
