Today’s Game. ,
Barringer High School va South
Side High School, at City Athletic
Field.
* Since East Orange’s downfall at
Peddle the football situation at Bar
ringer has taken an optimistic turn.
Coaoh Broadhead and the others In
terested In the Barringer prospects
that viewed the game at Hightstown
are strong in their conviction that
Barringer has an even chance with
East Orange on Thanksgiving Day.
The ohlef of the Blue and White
football forces asserted that he had
been troubled all season with the
quality of his ends, but at last they
had begun to round Into form, and
with the seasoning that they are to
get In the remaining games with
Pennington and South Side, Ten Eyck,
Searles and Schaaf should make a
creditable showing against Taylor
and Fischer in the annual clash. Van
Ness, whose ankle has been off since
the Peddle game, Is about again and
may again get into harness on the
holiday. Barringer Is now an even
choice for the turkey day contest, as
the Ridge Streeters put up a far
stronger resistance to the onslaughts
of the Hlghtstowners than did the
suburbanites. Peddle won the game
with Barringer, played at the City
Athletic Field, by a score of 21 to 0.
Even then the result was the reward
of the quick scteure of opportunities
rather than the outcome of an In
ability to cope with the strong lino
plunges of Peddle. Perhaps the
Hlghtstowners were not aware of the
weakness of the Barringer ends, but
It Is a fact that Dempsey and Van
Ness, who played the flanks during
the greater part of the contest, did
much better work than Taylor and
Fischer accomplished in Saturday's
game. The East Orange extremes
went to Hightstown with a reputa
tion of the best, but proved Inefficient
in their attempts to check the Peddle
progress around the extremes.
Vote on St. Benedict* Tomorrow.
According to the sentiment ex
pressed yesterday at a meeting ot the
constitution committee of tho Newark
High Schools’ Athletic Association St.
Benedict’s Preparatory School Is to
be denied admittance Into the newly
formed league. The purpose of the
new organization as the representa
tives of the four high schools Inter
preted It was to promote athletics In
(he public schools. The idea of pro
moting contests for the award *of city
championships was not the Intent of
the body. Hence, none of the repre
sentatives present could set forth any
idvantage that would result from tho
Catholic school's affiliation with the
body. Such a purpose as deciding
Ihe city championships could not be
served even if It were the primary
object of tho organization, unless
Newark Academy could be induced to
join. The possibility of the Farrand
School making application appeared
to be very remote. Wayland E.
Stearns made a statement during the
Hternoon’s discussion that bodes ill
or basketball. He said that he was
n favor of doing away with that
in rt of the athletic program which
followed football and preceded base
ball and outdoor track events, as It
'ook up too -much of the student’s
‘ime. He emphasized that the ath
i tlcs were secondary to ■ studies and
v hen the time came he would be fa
orable to the abolition of basketball
nid tho other sports that took up
nuch of the aforesaid Interval. Mr.
'teams cited Newark Academy as
controlling the athletic In the Ideal
ashion. Outdoor track. football,
oseball, cross-country and basketball
vere enumerated In the constitution
is the sports In which championship
competition should be held. Should
this program of championship events
be adopted tomorrow at the regular
meeting of the association there w'lll
be mandatory competition In the same
every year. Other championship com
petitions may be conducted In tho
following sports: Swimming, Indoor
track, markmanship, tennis and soc
cer football. The next meeting of the
association will be held tomorrow at
the City Hall. At this time the mat
ter of St. Benedict’s admittance and
the adoption of the constitution will
he voted upon?
Shorp Denies Din race.
Rahway High School Is evidently
very sincere in its attempt to estab
lish Its claim to the high school cham
pionship of the State. Recently it
was contended that Rahway had
made no effort to eliminate Westfield
High School, in Its own county, and
Rutherford High School, the North
ern New Jersey interscholastic cham
pion, from the race for the State foot
ball honors. Coach W. Shorp, of the
Rahway team, denied the contention
today, and stated that he had offered
the election day and another date to
both Rutherford and Westfield This
is hardly In accordance with the
statement that Manager Lucey, of the
Rutherford team, made that he had
been unable to secure gfames with
East Orange, Barringer or Rahway.
Rahway has its work cut out for it
Saturday, when the Union county
champions meet East Orange High
School at Ashland Field. If the Rah
way eleven succeede^n putting over
a win it will have to be reckoned in
final classification of the high school
football teams of the State. However
If the Rahway team falls before the
suburban lads it will be assumed
that the 14-6 victory over Barringer

wag a win made possible by the
stage fright of the green players in
the local lineup.
reddle’s Claim to Kninr.
Peddle Institute is very proud of
the fact that Acting Governor Leon
Taylor was once a representative of
the Blue and Gold on the football
field. Taylor was a power in the
Peddle Une-up of ten years ngo. The
governor played in the back field.
Recently the acting executive of the
State addressed the Peddle gridiron
representatives, since which occasion
the Peddle team has not lost a game.
Peddie’s 91 to 0 defeat of East Or
ange has created considerable sensu
tion in local scholastic circles, and
there are many that begin to doubt
whether or not Lawrenceville would
have gotten away with the 15 to 7 vic
tory over the Blue and Gold had the
gridiron been In any sort of condition.
The day that Peddle grappled with
the Hickey .School whs the date of
Princeton’s defeat at the hands of
Dartmouth, and an opinion has ex
isted ever since that had the weather
been otherwise the score of the gamo
would have been different. A 91 to 0
defeat for the gridiron warriors of
East Orange is somewhat startling.
Hitherto this fall East Orange has
been rated higher than any of the
high school teams hereabouts. Bar
ringer was forecasted for a defeat In
the annual Thanksgiving Day battle,
and the Red and Blue was touted as
being in line for the State champion
ship, as the 8 to 6 defeat suffered at
the hands of Princeton Prep was any
thing but decisive.
For Hudson County Title.
Dickinson High School and St.
Peter’s College will grapple on Satur
day at West Side Park, Jersey City,
in the eleventh annual battle for
the championship of Hudson county.
This season’s contest Is likely to be
the closest In years, as Dickinson
has been scored upon but once, that
occasion being In last Saturday’s
game with Rahway High School. De
spite the splendid record of Its rival,
St. Peter’B Is an even choice, as past
performances are being disregarded
In the preparation for this game.
Head Coach Burke and his corps.
Doherty, McGulness and Egan, the
last a former Holy Cross star, are
drilling the men hard In anticipation
of a victory. On Thanksgiving Day
St. Peter’s will meet Its ancient rival,
Seton Hall. The South Orangltes
have not played the Jersey eleven In
two years. The last game was won
by St.. Peter's, 35 to 0, a defeat that
still rankles at South Orange.
Ilrown Stars to Come Hera.
Raymond L. Smith, Oustav Tobel
man and George Williamson, former
swimming team captains at Barrin
ger High School and now aquatic
stars at Brown University, are to
again splash In local waters on the
evening of Saturday, December 27,
at the Newark Y. M. C. A. The Prov
idence College trio of watermen are
to be the stellar attraction of a
‘‘Parents’ night” exhibition, and will
appear In the company of Henry
Hauser, Charles Nunn, Howard
Nunn, Walter Cummings and others
of the crack swimming teams that
represented the Halsey street Insti
tution In bygone days.
Last Game for South Side.
South Side High School will con
clude Its football season on Friday,
when Central High School will be the
opponent at the City Athletic Field.

OPEN PLAY WINS
FOR ST. BENEDICTS
Use of Forward Pass at Critical
Moment Gives Locals 7-0
Victory.
M’DERMIT SCORES TALLY
Open play in the third quarter re
sulted In a 7 to 0 victory for St Bene
dicts yesterday in its second game
of the season with Belleville High
School at the Newark Athletic Park,
South Orange avenue and Boylan
street. Belleville hold the High street
lads safe In the first half, keeping the
ball for the most of the time In St.
Benedict's territory. Penter, the
quarterback of the Milltown eleven,
ripped off several lengthy runs In
the first quarter, and Just before the
period’s end placed the leather on the
one-yard line, only to have It brought
back on a holding penalty.
Ward attempted a field goal from
the 85-yard mark upon the resump
tion of play, but the boot went askew.
Belleville's Interference and the in
dividual efforts of Penter kept Bene
dicts on the alert in the second quar
ter, the first half ending with the
leather on the Benedict 80-yard line.
It was shortly after the opening
play of the second half that St. Bene
dicts scored. Ward kicked to Cava
naugh. who ran the ball back to his
80-yard chalk. On the next play Oll
ligan hurled the oval to McDermlt,
who evaded the Belleville secondary
defense and sprinted for a touch
down. Ollllgan kicked the goal.
The local team all but repeated In
the final quarter. Cavanaugh.
George and McDermlt rushed the ball
to the Belleville 1-yard line. Here
the Milltowners’ line stiffened and It
held the Maroon and Gray for downs.
Belleville was about to rush the ball
from its 6-yard line when the final
whistle prevented. The line-up and

CARLISLE REFUSES
WESTERN OFFERS
Indians Will Not Play Any of
Forty Teams Looking
for Games.
NEWS HOT OFF GRIDIRON
The Carlisle officials have decided
to decline the deluge of offers re
ceived from more than forty towns
and Institutes from the Far West
and South for post season games.
The authorities feel they cannot al
low the Indian students to be absent
from their studies as long as would
be necessary by such trips.
Tho Carlisle Indians are looking
toward the Syracuse game, at Syra
cuse, on Saturday, with more appre
hension than generally would be ex
pected of the team which defeated
Dartmouth so decisively. Coach
Warner’s men feel that tremendous
effort will be made by the New York
football team to catch the Redskins
off their guard as they did two years
ago, when tho Indians In sublime
confidence of their power ran Into a
slump In the Syracuse game. Car
lisle will not be taken by surprise
this year.

Almost the full brigade of midship
men at Annapolis gathered on the
stands yesterday and sang and
cheered In order to stir up tho team.
This will be continued on every af
ternoon until the squad leaves for
New York, where on tho Polo
Ground the middles will meet the
Army team In the annual struggle
for the service championship. The
singing and cheering of the midship
men brought home the fact that the
game Is less than two weeks off.

By a change In the manner of
marking the tickets for this year's
Harvard-Yale football game, the
Harvard athletic authorities hope to
be able to prevent ticket speculation.
On each ticket Is stamped the name
of the Individual applicant and he
alone will be allowed to use It. If a
ticket is presented at the Stadium by
a person other than the one whose
name appears on the card It will be
confiscated and the one to whom It
was Issued will be deprived of the
right to apply for tickets to future
games. Frederick W. Moore, gradu
ate treasurer of the Harvard, Ath
letic Association, has started the dis
tribution of about 27,000 tickets to
Harvard graduates and under
graduates.

A. A. U. ELECTS LILL
AS IIS PRESIDENT
James E. Sullivan Re-elected
Secretary-Treasurer—Ac
cept 92 New Records.
LATEST ATHLEJIC GOSSIP
Alfred J. Lill, jr., of Boston, was
elected president of the Amateur
Athletic Union yesterday at the twen
ty-sixth annual convention of the na
tional governing athletic body, at the
Waldorf-Astoria. The Bostonian was
opposed by George F. Pawling, of
Philadelphia, the men having been
for the last year Respectively first
and second vice-presidents of the
body. The vote was 23 to 9 In favor
of Lill. At the request of 'Mr.
Pawling the vote was then made
unanimous.
The only man at the top of the
ticket who held over, his selection
being unopposed, was James E. Sul
livan, as secretary-treasurer, a po
sition he has held since he surrend
ered the presidency some years ago.
The vloe-presldents chosen were John
Elliott, Paolflc Association; Theodore
R. Bland, Western Association;
George J. Turner, Middle Atlantio
Association, and Fred W. Bauer,
South Atlantic Association.
The report of Mr. Sullivan showed
a most encouraging state of affairs,
In the financial department, a net
gain of $3,161.66 being recorded for
the year, with a complete capital In
the general account of $24,877.62, at
testing the strongest condition the
union has attained.
The record committee of the A. A.
U., headed by Frederick W. Rublen,
attested to the acceptance of ninety
two new records. Seventy-eight of
these were made on track and field
and fourteen In swimming. Of those
awarded for track and field excel
lence, forty-three are credited to
Hannes Kolchmalnen, who made
thirty-one In outdoor events and
twelve In Indoor running, the record
number mode by an lndlvidiyil in any
season.
_
The great interest evidenced by
European nations and other* abroad
in American athletics, and the desire
for Instruction in the best ways and
means to further the competitive
sides of the foreign teams which have
only until recently taken a seeming
ly passive concern in the Olympic
games, has taken a decided step for
ward with the appearance here of
Dr. Otto Herschman, the emissary
of the Austrian government, who Is
studying American methods In track
and field and kindred sports.
W. L. Jones wrote a letter yester
day to Donald Llpplncott, the great
sprinter of the Pennsylvania Univer
sity, Inviting him to compete In the
130-yard special race which will be
one of the features of the diocesan
games to be held at the Thirteenth
Regiment Armory, In Brooklyn, on
Saturday night. Howard Drew has
already sent In hls entry for the
sprint.
There were some slight contention
over the 42-pound stone record
awarded Pat Ryan, of the Irisli
Amerlcan Athletic Club, 28 feet 11%
inches, It having been suggested at
the eleventh hour that Ryan had
fouled after hls delivery by falling
over on hls hands. The game being
essentially an Irish one, It developed
that there was no rule on the books
to govern the event, so the commit
tee accepted it.
With the object of meeting the high
cost of living in the proper spirit the
New York Athletic Club proposes to
reduce the initiation fee of resident
members from $250 to $100.
The Swedish Olympic committee
; has sent two delegates to Berlin to
protest against the proposal of the
British. American and German com
mittees to curtail the shooting pro
gram by eliminating the running doer
and several short range competitions.
The 120-yard special at the Diocesan
Union Indoor meet next Saturday will
bring out a strong field. Alvah
Meyer, Howard Drew, Jim Rosen
berger, Hal Hellland and Hannes
Kohlemainen will be starters. Han
nes will start from scratch In the
three-mile handicap.
University of Pennsylvania harriers
are favored by some experts to beat
both Cornell and Harvard in the big
Intercollegiate A. A. hill and dale
race at Van Cortlandt Park, New
York, next Saturday. Ted Meredith,
who is a star at a quarter or half
mile, has been good and bad at the
cross-country game , if reports from
Quakertown are true. George Orton
has been grooming the Red and Blue
team.
Cornell, always dangerous, may up
set all the dope Saturday, for Jack
Moakley is keenly alive to the equa
tion, and the Ithacans must keep
up their athletic presitge in this
branch of sport.
Hannes Kohlemalnen, who has
been getting a lot of notoriety of
late, has a poor opinion of the crowd
Saturday, which broke through the
ropes, and Kohelmainen in going out
of his course lost several valuable
seconds. He had such a big lead his
chances were not injured In the
senior cross-country championship.
Pennington Wipes Up Field
With Rutgers Prep Eleven
Pennington played the Rutgers pre
paratory school team on the Penning
ton field yesterday afternoon. The
score resulted 29 to 0 in favor of
Pennington. Pennington outplayed j
Rutgers at every part of the battle.
Chester played a star game. His
judgment was unerring as to the
critical point of attack, and his at
tacks were not to be resisted. Peck,
Tournqulst, Fleming and McGovern
also played in fine foim.
GOSSIP OF THE GOLFERS
George Low, the professional of the
Baltusrol Golf Club, who recently re
signed, has withdrawn his resignation
and will remain at his old post. The
slight differences which existed be
tween Low and some of the club offi
cials have been smoothed over, but It
will not deter the former metropolitan
open champion from his contemplated
trip to Scotland. 1-Ie will sail on De
cember 13, returning in time to begin
the regular golf season In the spring.
The St. Andrews Golf Club will cele
brate its twenty-fifth anniversary
with a dinner at Delmonico’s, New
York, tomorrow night. John Deld,
"the father of American golf,” will be
one of the principal guests. Among
the lnlvted guests are Andrew Car
negie, Nicholas Murray Butler, J. Irv
ing Fletcher, Patrick Francis Murphy,
Bobert C. Watson, president of the
United States Golf Association, and
Frederick S. Wheeler, president of the
Metropolitan Golf Association.
L. E. K. White was presented with
the gold medal emblematic of the club
championship at the annual dinner of
the Gienwood Country Club last Sat
urday evening, Frank Tasker was
the recipient of the president’s cup,
while the "ringer” trophy becamo the

UNABLE TO MEET
«
Absence of Ebbets and Solo*
mon Causes Postponement
of Annual^ Session.
WILL CONVENE DECEMBER 2
The annual meeting of the Newark
International League Club's stock
holders, scheduled for last night, was
ppstponed because three directors were
not present. Charles H. Ebbets, sr„
and Charles Ebbets, jr., were un
able to attend, illness In the family
being given as the cauBe. George L.
Solomon was not on hand, having
learned that nothing would be done In
the absence of the EbbetB. The meet
ing was postponed until Tuesday, De
cember 2, at 3 p. m.
The critical Illness of James Ebbets,
brother of the Brooklyn president, was
given as the reason for Inability of
the Ebbets to be present. The local
stockholders, John McLaren, Gustave
A. Wledenmayer, Joseph Wleden
mayer, Lawrence Sutton and C. P.
Sohmldt were present, as were
Stephen and Edward MoKoever,
Henry W. Medlcus and Bernard J.
York, counsel for the Newark and
Brooklyn olubs.
The Brooklyn magnates explained
that Ebbets’s brother, who reside*
In the Bronx, had been stricken late
yesterday afternoon and his condi
tion was so critical that his relatives
were called to the bedside.
In postponing the meeting for two
weeks It Is just possible that during
the two weeks Intervening before the
date set for the postponed meeting
the club may be sold. Edward Mc
Keever, who acted as spokesman last
night, said that William McGill had
made no direct offer and that the
club was not likely to be sold. Mr.
McKeever, however, was evasive In
discussing the subject, and It Is be
lieved that an effort may yet be made
by the Brooklyn Interests to dispose
of their Newark holdings In spite of
denials.
None of the Brooklyn men would
discuss the president question, but It
seems certain that Charles H. Ebbets,
Jr., will be elected at the next meeting
if the same owners have control.
There Is a possibility that Eddie
Phelps, who helped the Tigers out
during tho fag end of the season, will
not wear a Newark uniform, after all,
next season. Phelps has a chance to
manage a minor league club, and a
deal may be pulled whereby he can
get his reelase from the local club.
In Pierre. S. D.. articles of incor
poration were filed with the secretary
of state for the Colored National
Baseball League of the United StateB.
The league Is capitalized for $50,000,
and is backed by Chicago men.
In a game played at Medford, Ore.,
yesterday, the ‘Giants won from the
White Box. 3 to 0. Hooks Wlltse
Pitched. The game was called In tho
sixth Inning on account of rain.
♦ Bert Tooley, of the Tigers, had a
narrow escape In a hunting accident,
which happened In Michigan recently,
according to a letter written to a
friend In this city. Bert, with a party
of relatives and friends, was returning
from a hunting trip in a rowboat,
when a gun belonging to one of the
hunters accidentally exploded and
shot a hole in the bottom of the craft.
The boat Immediately sank and Bert,
with two other companions, swam to
the shore, but a fourth member of the
party was drowned.
CRIMSON DETERMFnED
Tale’s great Improvement as shown
in the game played against the Tigers
only has served to,make the Harvard
players more determined to put on
their best football against tho Blue
this week. Whatever overconfidence
there was in the team v/as dissipated
when the Tigers were beaten only
by a field goal two weeks ago and
Yale’s recent exhibition has quite
upset any calculations of a repeti
tion of last year’s 20 to 0 scoro. If,
Indeed, the team entertained any
such Idea,
DEETJEN BOOMED AS A STAR
Waldemar Deetjen, the former Mont
clair Military Academy star, Is now
being boomed for a position on the
all-American team. Deetjen scored
twenty points for Wesleyan against.
New York University. His sixty-yard
dash for a touchdown in the first
quarter was the most spectacular play
of the game.
First Regiment flames May Be
Closed to Schoolboys and
Soldiers.
AWAIT A. A. U. SANCTION
If the plans of Captain Harold A.
Wakefield, president of the First Reg
iment Athletic Association, are car
ried out, the double meet to be held
at the armory In February will be a
closed one In the strictest sense of the
word. It Is Captain Wakefield's Idea
to have the meet restricted to the
members of his regiment and the
local public and parochial schools.
The program as now drawn up calls
for a double meet for local schoolboys
and mombers of the First Regiment,
and the tentative date for the affair
la February 11, 19H. The events open
to the guardsmen will consist of seml
mllltary contests, and will tnolude a
wall-scaling competition, a tug-of
war, an obstacle race and a ‘Salome
race," In addition to the regular ath
letic competitions.
The "Salome race” Is always a great
mirth-provoker, besides being an In
teresting contest of skill. The men
start from a mark In full uniform and
along the line of the dash are stations,
at each one of which the contestant
must remove some part of their uni
form. On the return trip they put on
an article of clothing at each of these
stations, finishing in full uniform.
The possibilities for aide-splitting
comedy In this event can easily be
Imagined.
For the sohoolboys, the events will
be divided Into senior, Junior and mid
get classes, and will be the usual ath
letic contests, with several features,
which will bo decided Upon at the
next meeting of the Athletic Associa
tion of the regiment.
Every member of the regiment Is
also a member of the athletic asso
ciation and all will be entitled to free
pseses on the night of the meet.
The entire list of prizes has not been
decided upon as yet, but It Is under
stood that gold, silver and bronze
medals will be offered for individual
competition, while the sohoolB and
eompanlee will compete for handsome
point trophies.
An application for sanction has been
made to tho A. A. U. and everything
will be done to make the competition
an Interesting one, both for contest
ante and spectators.

NEW BASKETBALL J
-
Interstate Organization Will
Bar All Rough Tactics
from Contests.
TO REVIVE PUBLIC INTEREST
Plans are under way for the forma
tion of a new basketball organiza
tion. to ha known as the New Jersey
and Connecticut League, and which
will comprise teams from Harrison,
Paterson. Hoboken, all of this State,
and Norwalk. Stamford and Dan
bury, of Connecticut. The Harrison
Big Five will represent Harrison, the
Troy Five will be the Hoboken en
try. while the American Five will
have the support of Silk City baskst
hall followers.
The Idea of the proposed league Is
to have basketball put on a basis
that will eliminate the rough
tactics commonly employed by quin
tets of this vicinity. The game, by
the way. Is not played hereabouts as
It should be. More Interest would be
the outcome, and the contests would
probably attract larger crowds, if the
teams displayed better basketball,
that Is—If they lived up to the strict
ruling of the game. If the league
plan goes through It will insure the
followers of the game hotter eon
tests In this section, with the "rough
stuff" completely barred.
Demurs Pull Down.
Although they were looked upon to
give the Entre Nouls Five, of Harri
son, a real battle, as In their-previous
game, the Demar quintet did not show
up to expectations last night. They
were heaten, 55 to 38, and were out
played from the start. At half-time
the West Hudson Auditorium crew
was In the lead by 22 points to 14. The
remarkable goal caging of Wally
Kussmaul, Johnny McGulgan and
Marty Kavanagh was a feature. The
former had nine field baskets; Mc
Guire was there with one less, while
Kavanagh succeeded In getting the
leather spheroid through the iron
rim six times. Johnny Blegner, of the
Harrison Big Five, divided the game
with Willie McGulgan for the Harri
son five, and got In two field goaLs.
Larry Fagan had one, as did the
younger McGulgan. The ability of
Krause to shoot field baskets saved
the evening for the visitors. He had
no less than ten counts, which netted
Ills team twenty points. Moller, his
partner at forward, got five goals from
the field, Ryan had three, while Splin
der caged one.
Schmeelk Has Done Well.
Garry Schmeelk, who at one time
played for the Celluloids, of 2thls city,
and who is now a member of the
Crescents, of Paterson, is second In
the list of point-getters in the New
