Nov. 5 The Manly Memorial Steeplechase Handicap, with a value of $10,000, was won here yesterday by J. E. Widener's Duettiste, which proved that he is quite the best cross-country per former now in tarining over a dis tance of two miles and a half. The aged fencer scored an impressive vic tory, taking the winner's share with an advantage of eight lengths from Mrs. F. Ambrose Clark's Toppy Nix, while third place went to the Green Stable's Debadou. Duettiste had the race in hand from the time he took command, and won easily despite the fast pace that was set throughout. His victory was popular, for he was the favorite, 'and had been heavily . supported. The Manly Memorial is the richest of the season's steeplechase events and accordingly it brought out the cream of the fencers. There were ten starters, and the only notable performer missing was The Brook, that sturdy little horse, which always carries the top weight in all contests he enters. Johnny Lisse Seeks Bout With Shugrue Manager Al Weill, representing Johnny Lisse, Issues the following challenge to Johnny Shugrue: "I will appreciate it very much if you will state in your valuable col inns that Johnny Lisse, the New York featherweight, is anxious to meet Johnny Shugrue in a twelve round decision bout at one of the Bridgeport clubs and Is willing to meet the Bridgeport boy at 124 pounds. Lisse has appeared a num ber of times in bouts throughout Con necticut and has also boxed at Phil adelphia, Trenton and other Jersey clubs. He is one of the most satis factory fighters in the ring today and if Shugrue will consent to meet him, the fight fans of your town will wit ness one of the best battles staged there in a long time. . However, if Shugrue refuses to take Ltose on any other featherweight will do as Lisse bars no one. Address: Stillman's Gymnasium, 162 West 126th street, New York oity. Now, Mr. President, go slow. Re member that the people hire several hundred thousand public employes to assist you and don't try to do the whole job yourself. PENS ! ( ROW EVENING The lid will be pried off the basketball season tomorrow night at Colonial hull when the Blue Ribbons will tackle the Passaic. N. J., team in the opening game of the Inter State season. "Shis popular winter sport drew big cwds here last sea son and with a strong league to fur nish good attractions the fans are sure to see exciting contests. After this week the league games will be played every Tuesday night. Manager Leavy of the Blue Rib bons, who will represent Bridgeport in the league, declares he has a strong team although some of the players are strangers h-?re. He thinks he is very fortunate in securing Schwab, who formerly played with Stamford. Schwab is considered one of the best players in the east but as his home is in Xewark, X. J., he previously re fused to come to this city because he could not get home the same night. Stewart and Dehnert are also new comers to local fans but Manager Leavy vouches for their ability. Reich and Malone, who will complete the roster of the Ribbons, are stars whose ability has frequently been dis played here. It looks as if Sergt. Empey of "Treat 'Em Rough" fame, had gath ered a strong team for New "York. He has signed Chief Muller and Beck man for forwards, Leonard center, Clinton and Hobey Fyfe. guards. It is also expected that Frank Frisch and Jess Barnes of the New Tork Giants will be in the league. Frisch formerly played at Fordham. Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 5 The first team that Harvard sends out on the field at Princeton on Saturday will be smooth running if constant drilling together will make it so. With no change in the line-up except that Sedgwick and Hubbard alternat ed at left tackle, Bob Fisher held his men together first against the subs, both for offensive and defensive drill. and then rushed the team as it will stand for Saturday against the scrub team. Against the black-jerseyed seconds there was a display of real football. The regulars, trying to get speed and dash into a series of new plays, went at the scrubs for all they were worth, but the latter were held up when they caught the spirit of roughing. Capt. Murray is getting his back field going in fine style. Although Casey, Burnham and Humphrey do not represent the most powerful combination the Crimson could pre sent, they do stand as the fastest and the smoothest working arrangement. Fred Church played with the sub stitutes and is the type of player to fill in for either Casey or Humphrey. Burnham's improvement has been one of the most satisfactory developments of the past week. He has come on fast as an interferer and on him will fall the heaviest nork of the back- field offensive at Princeton. Sedgwick was the first choice for left tackle. If he stays in condition he may get first chance against the Tigers. Hubbard is likely to he steadier for a long stretch of play. but Sedgwick, when fresh, makes a lot of trouble. Both players are likely to have all the playing they want on Saturday. Desmond and Steele remain at ends but yesterday Morris Phinney was in the other line-up. He has had a bad back injury, but he is ready to play. Before he was hurt, he was ahead of the other wings on forward pass work, but except for this he will have to make great strides in his play in the ordinary run of attack. Signs In Stores to Tell When Baseball Games Are Postponed New York, Nov. 4. President Charles H. Ebbets of the Brooklyn Dodgers contemplates an innovation which greatly should interest local fans and is worthy of the serious consideration of the officials of the Giants and Yankees. The Brooklyn owner is trying to arrange with a corporation owning a string of stores operating throughout Brooklyn and Queens to carry "Game" and "No Game" signs in its windows through out next season. One of the disagreeable conditions that long has confronted both New York and Brooklyn fans is the in ability to ascertain whether games were to be played on rainy of incle ment day3. Much precious time hafi been wasted in futile attempts to get the Polo Grounds or Ebbets Field on the telephone. Thousands of fame have made futile trips to the ball ground only to find the game was off. The ball clubs also have been affected by the condi tions, for many persons have re mained away on doubtful days who would have attended the games had there been some way of knowing whether a contest was to be played. The baseball public certainly is worthy of every consideration from the club owners and there is nothing that would make more for the com fort and convenience of the fans than to provide some system of getting needed inforamtion to the public on days in which weather conditions make the games doubtful. Among the people who are signing pe&Je treaties with reservations, are the brides who are promising to obey their husbands. CAPT. MURRAY OF HARVARD HAS TEAM IN SHAPE DKMPSEY TO MEET BECKETT MARCH 17. St. Patrick's day will ho cele brated in the proper manner by linvlnK Jaek Deinpsey meet Joe Beckett, the English champion, at New Orlcjuis, La. Dempsey sign ed an agreement for the match yesterday, according to an an nouncement mado by Dominick Tortoricli, the New Orleans pro motor. Ho declares th pair will meet on March 17 in the event that Beckett wins from Carpen tler, the French elsampion, in thjeir light on December 4. It is gener ally conceded that Beckett will leat tile Frenchman, liowever. BOB MARTIN IS NOT READY TO MEET DEMPSEY New York, Nov. 4. There is many a long month of hard training and studious effort under experienced ring generals before Bob Martin, heavy weight champion of the A. E. F., and inter-allied armies, can think of bat tling Jack Dempsey for the world's heavyweight crown. That was the opinion of scores of prominent fight critics from every section of the country who watched the soldier champion cut Joe Bonds literally to shreds in a scheduled 15-round go which was stopped in the eleventh round by Referee Matt Hinkel of Cleveland after Martin had pounded Bonds helpless. Martin is a good fighter. There is a future in store for him. He is an aspirant and a logical aspirant for the heavyweight title, but there is no possibility that he could success fully fight Dempsey just now. Anyone who would match him up with the title - holder would literally sentence him to a ring death. That, in a few words, is the critics" view of the soldier champion. There was not a critic at the ringside who did not have praise for the big sol dier fighter after watching him have Bonds absolutely at his mercy from the time the gong sounded until the bout was stopped. But there were none who did not agree that Martin in his present day development is no match for the experienced ring generalship of Dempsey. He is too inexperienced. But many critics believe, among them Ed Smith of Chicago, that with, prop er handling Martin will, within a year or 18 months, be able to tackle Dempsey or any ether heavyweight champion. Eddie Fitzsimmons Is Coming Lightweight Champ, Says Morgan Dan Morgan goes into the following raptures about his protege, Eddie Fitzsimmons: "Talking about the heavyweights of today being a poor lot, what about the merry-go-round lightweight boys? The following are a few facts: "Benny Leonard and Eddie Fitz simmons stand out as the only two lightweights of class in the world to day. A few weeks ago. Tendler agreed to meet any lightweight in Milwaukee and gave the promoter a check for $500. Mr. Otto Bochert, president of the Cream City A. C, signed Eildie Fitzsimmons to meet Lew Tendler at 133 pounds. Exit Tendler leaving his check behind! The promoter dropped into Chicago and tried to sign Joe Welling, or Charlie White, any weight with their own referee. "Welling and White smiled and said: 'Nothing doing with that bird.' Then along comes Willie Jackson and Johnny Dunidee, supposed contenders for -Leonard's crown, and again was the promoter told that 'Little Fitz' could hit too hard and that they would have nothing to do with Eddie Fitz simmons, the sailor 'boy, who is looked upon as the next in kin to Leon ard for the crown. Fitzsimmons agrees to K. O. any of the contenders inside of twelve rounds, weight to be from 133-140 lbs. ringside, also "Valgar, who as a lightweight is trying to grab the 122 pound championship, 4s invited to mingle with Fitz." COMISKEY SAYS CHICAGO DIDN'T THROW SER New York, Nov. 5 Charles A. Co- miskey, president of the White Sox, arrived in the city yesterday. He is here to attend the meeting of the Board of Directors of the American League, which will be held at the Biltmore today. It is expected that at this session the directors will vote to ask the National Commission to turn over to the Yankees the third place money they won, but which is held up because of a protest by Frank Navin, the Detroit magnate. The Chicago magnate declared that there is no truth in the rumors that certain players on his team "Dulled" to the Reds. He declared that he had investigated many sources but had been unable to discover any wrong doing on the part of the ball players. REALISTIC BATTLER It may not ba news that Clara Kimball Young purchased a giant cockatoo. It may not be news either that she owned a very valuable Pek inese Spaniel. But it is news that through someone's carelessness ,the dog and bird met on a narrow path leading to her dressing room and now Miss Young ownes neither dog nor bird. The dog is pushing daisies up through the soil, while the cocka too is a free lance. Why worry about strikes? . There are a lot of people in great need of a. vacation. COAST STAR j GIVES WELLING AD BEATING Valger Has Drummie in Bad Condition Dundee Puts Touhey Away. Newark, Nov. 5. Joe Benjamin, lightweight champion of the Pacific coast, who in his Eastern debut last night before a crowd that packed the i First Regiment Armory, outclassed Joe Welling, in one of the eight round bouts that featured an all star card. Benjamih made good his claim to a position in the first flight of the division toy giving Welling an artistic drubbing. The Californian not only outhit and outboxed Welling, but on three occasions the coast star stag gered Welling with crashing rights to the jaw, leaving the former sailor in distress. Twice -the bell came to Welling's re lief in the nick of time, for a few more blows to the jaw would have brought the older man down. Welling showed a disposition to hold when the pace got too hot, and thus avoided many solid blows. Benjamin had the better of every round up to the seventh, when the veteran awoke and by a series of body blows slowed the coast hoy to a walk. Hut Be.njamin came back strong in the eighth and won handily. Benja min will have to be considered by all the lightweight clan. Welling weighed 137 and Benjamin 134. Benny Valger. who has been annoy ing Johnny Kilbane with challenges for a title fight, increased the vadility of his claim for recognition by the champion, by giving Johnny Drum mie, the lightweight champion of New Jersey, one of the severest trouncings turjt young man ever received. Val ger tried hard to add one to his list of knockouts, but Drummie has a pair of nimble feet and when situations arose that boded danger, he sprinted to safety. It looked as though Drummie would be finished in the seventh round when Valger landed a right to Orummie's jaw that staggered him. It required great activity on the part of Drum mie to avoid a knockout. Drummie took a terrific beating In the eighth and last round, -but was on his feet. His title was tilted but still on his head. Drummie confessed to 133 rounds. while, Valger's weight was announced at J 27 1-2. The figures were disputed from Drummie's corner, where it was said Valger weighed 129. Valger, while showing aggressiveness and hittin with force, exhibited a slowness that prevented him taking advantage of numerous wide openings. The French "flash" also showed poor judgment as to distance. Soldier Bartfleld and Angie Rat ner put up the most disappointing bout of the night. It was a combin ation boxing and wrestling bout, with the tactics of srapplers predominat ing. Bartfleld, always a wild, bois terous performer, waged an uproari ous combat. He nearly tore down the ring in his efforts to land one of his wild swings on his opponent. Eartfieldwas unsuccy-:rful for the most part, his ffloves landing on the ring ropes or the referee, Henry Lewis of ' Newark. The official was a glutton for punishment. RACIN IN POPULAR RITISH SPORT Gambling Increasing As "Sport of Kings" Reaches Pre-War Basis. London, Nov. 5 (By The Asso ciated Press) Horse racing, like every other kind of sport here, has experienced a great boom since the war and consequently the gambling habit has Increased. Promoters of race meetings all over the country announce that re cord crowds have attended while the number of horses entered for the races are already up to pre-war pro portions. Racing is carried on all the year round and scarcely does a day pass without a meeting of some kind being held in some part of the country. It .is divided into two cata gories flat racing, which commences in March and ends in November and steeplechasing which finishes out the year. At the "classic" meetings held at Epsom, Goodwood and Ascot practi cally all the aristocrats of the turf congregate. Entertaining takes place on a large scale and the women vie with each other In displaying the latest fashions in dress. The highest amount paid for the winner of a race is that for the win ner of the Derby amounting to $32, 000. There is more betting on horse racing than on any other sport. The English law is peculiar on that point. Betting on the race course is strictly legal, but the passing of betting slips in the streets is considered a serious offence. Yet one may legally place I bets by calling up a bookmaker on ! any telephone, or by sending name of the horse fancied by telegram or through the post. This anomaly, therefore occurs: A betting slip with a horse's name and an amount of money mentioned if handed to a bookmaker in the street is an offence punishable by Im- j Prisonment. Yet a telegram to the i bookmaker and containing the same wording handed in at postofnee Is a perfectly legal undertaking, and. In cidentally one which is largely fol lowed. In the poorer districts where there are thousands of "backers" who make bets varying from a dollar to 12 cents, the street bookmaker does a roaring trade, although he is liable to arrest and his business has per force to be conducted very secretly as plain clothes police are always on th lookout for Mm. HORSE AGA CHAIN ELEVEN TURNS DOWN WASH. GLEES. The Wasldngton Glee club elev en of New Haven, may play tlie American Chain team at Newflcld park tills season, but Manager Kearney won't cancel liis game with the General Electric eleven of Schnectady, N. Y., to give the Glees a booking. The General Electrics are scheduled for New field park next Sunday and as they are one of the best teams in the east the Chain manager refused to listen to the plea of the Glees' manager that the New York staters should be shoved aside and the Glees given the local date for next Sunday. Manager Kearney also refused the Glees' proposition that the Chains play one game here with the Glees and one in New Haven. TED LEWIS IS ATTEMPTING TO DO GOME BACK Ted Kid Lewis, the former welter weight champion, is fighting- hard and often to regain his laurels lost to Jack Britton. After losing his title Lewis realized he was slipping back fast, and placed himself under the care of a physician. He was out of things pugilistic several months, and re turned for a bout with Steve Latzo. It was a six round battle staged in Philadelphia. Lewis won by a nar row margin. Then followed an eight round no-decision affair with Jack Britton in which Lewis made a fair showing. His next battle was against Mike O'Dowd, the middleweight champion, who was nearly twenty pounds heav ier. Although his opponent had a great advantage In weight, Lewis made a' good showing. It was his first real fight since he returned to the ring. Lewis has now won his last two contests by the knockout route and is now convinced he has made a genuine comeback. Lewis is at present in tip top condition and is trying to arrange another contest with Benny Leonard the lightweight title holder. Several clubs in New Jersey have offered to stage the match If It i3 made. National Eleven To Have Drill Tonight Tonight, the Nationals football team will hold their mid-fekly practice at Harral avenue and Pequomiock street and every member of the team is re quested to be on hand.

The Nationals will clash with the Devon A. C. next Sunday at No. 1 diamond, at Seaside, ai.d expect to core a win. FOREIGN RIDERS TO TAKE PART N 6 DAY RAG New York, Nov. 5 For the first time in three years bike fans will see all the leading foreign riders compet ing In the six-day race at Madison Square Garden the week of Novem ber 30-December 6. The promoters are now negotiating for entries of the sensational Swiss champion, Oscar Egg, Thys and Dupuy, winners of the recent Brussels race, Brocco, the pop ular Italian, and Francesco Verri. In his last start here in 1917, Egg caused a sensation by riding three hours at top speed after losing his partner Peter Drobach. He won the race the previous year by stealing a lap the last night of the race with his partner Marcel Dupuy. Roy Moore Claims Flyweight Title Now Leo P. Flynn, the demon New York manager, sends in the following letter about Roy Moore: "Roy Moore of St. Paul, won the 15 round referee decision over Frankie Mason of Fort Wayne, Ind., last week, thereby winning the fly weight championship of America, and the right to meet Jimmy Wilde, the English title holder. Moore has beaten Pete Herman, Johnny Ertle, John Burman, Pal Moore, in a no- decision bout, Earl I'uryear, and has always been forced to give away weight like the English champion had to do. Moore stands ready to meet the English champion, at any weight that will suit the Englishman, in a decision or no decision bout, and can get $10,009 in Baltimore, where Moore received the referee decision over Frankie Mason." MORAX'S RECENT BOOT DID ' NOT SHOW IMPROVEMENT New York, Nov. 5- Frank Moran's return to the ring the other night in Pittsburgh, where he knocked out Jack Geyer in the eighth round, did not boost the sorrel top's propagan da for a bout with Jack Dempsey. Geyer, who is even a worse has-been than Moran, made Frank step some and delivered some pretty hard wal lops. Moran was slower than ever and very wild. It may be that Moran will get another opportunity at an early date to show his wares In New Jersey. He always Is popular with boxing followers and against some dub might prove a success. But Mo ran's talk of fighting Dempsey should be stopped. Such a meeting would have to be preceded by the appoint ment of s. coroner's jury. !"GUPS I ! I I D" BLACK RETURNS TO YALE TO COACH LINEMEN I Former Captain Will Pay Strengthen Defense Capt. Callahan Back At Center in Good Shape Again. New Haven, Nov. 5 Prominent among the largest coaching staff that has worked with the Yale eleven this year was Clinton R. Black, the fa mous "Cupid" captain of Yale's 1916 champion team. He was in uniform and worked out with Gait, while Pudge Hefflinger, also decidedly on deck, took charge of Accsta, the other guard. Black promises to get into the scrub line before the end of the week along with Hefflinger. It is safe to say that these powerful men will eith er make or, break the Yale guards for the Brown game. Callahan played practically the entire scrimmage session being re- i placed late in the afternoon by Gal vin, his regular understudy. The Eli leader is displaying his old time fight and the splendid defence put up by the varsity failed to yield a first down to a strong second team com bination. After the scrubs quit the varsity took oh the college team. Leon Walker blocked a punt and recovered it for a touchdown early in this scrimmage. The ball was given to the collegiate team first on the 40, then on the 30 and finally on the 20 yard line. It failed to make its dis tance on every occasion, despite- ex tra downs that were allowed. Sharpe tried out a new backfield Kempton, who was allowed to rest. was replaced by Chet La Roche. Tha halfbacks were French and Joe Ne ville, with Jim Braden reinstated at fullback. Before scrimmage was ove Chick Neville was put at quarterback. and Campbell and Don Welles went in at the half. Webb took fullback. Campbell made one good gain, but did not show up as strong as Welles. Both were returning to scrimmage after an absence of two weeks due to injuries to their legs. The varsity lineup was Reinhardt, left end; Dickens, left tackle; Acos ta, left guard; Callahan, centre; Gait, right guard; Walker, right tackle; Allen, right end; La Roche, quarter back; Neville, left halfback; French, right halfback and Braden, fullback. SYRACUSE WINS ROM RUTGERS IN GREAT GAME New York, Nov. 5 George Foster Sanford's "rationally developed" football team was beaten by Syracuse in the course of Election Day festivi ties at the Polo Grounds yesterday af ternoon. The Rutgers eleven, in jerseys that flamed as giddily as the shirts of a veteran fire hose company, reduced the rationality of their defense to practical terms, but their offense soared blithely in the realm of theory and never was brought to earth. Buck O'Xeill's warriors eked out two touch downs and called it a game with the score at 14 to 0. After a scoreless first half in which the Orange found the opposition im pervious to line smashing, Ackley, Abbott and Schwarzer introduced a flashing series of passes, combining the lateral with the forward to such gcod purposes that the pigskin was across the goal line before the sec ond half was two minutes old. A 30-yard heave by Ackley, stand ing on the 40-yard line, gave the bal! to Schwarzer, who was camping un der the shadow of the goal posts. The Syracuse end had a free romp to a seven point tally. Just as the fourth quarter opened two long end runs, one by Abbott and another by Erwig, after a double pass, took the pigskin from Syra cuse's 40-yard line to Rutgers 15 yard mark and a series of strenuous lim'bucks pushed the ball over, Er wig getting the touchdown. Syracuse did not show the power critics had been led to expect after receiving all the glowing reports that had filtered down from up-state. While outplaying Rutgers, gaining 162 yards by rushing to 55 for Sanford's team, there was nothing dynamic about the assault. The Orange fail ed to develop a sustained rushing t tack on the Rutgers' ramparts ar was compelled to fall back on crj" play to force the issue. The exceeding skill of Ackley gave the up-Staters 53 yards on aerial tosses. Rutgers, on the other xhand was unable to get any further with the open game than with straight running tactics, and though attempt ing six forward passes, five in the second half, none of them advanced the ball a yard. IRQOKLYN GLU HAS SIGNED SIX FOR NEXT YEAR President Charles H. Ebbets of the Robins' evidently is not wasting any time getting his players signed for next season. So far he has received the signed contracts of six members of the Flatbush outfit. The players who have agreed to terms are Rube Marquard, Jimmy Johnston. Clarence Mitchell, Raymond Schmandt, Ivan Olsen , and Chuck Ward. Several days ago It was announced that Wil ber Robinson had signed to manage the club next summer. A few days before the 1919 campaign -closed President Ebbets went to Philadel phia, where the club was playing a series, and ha talked ever terms with nearly every member ef the eluh. Attention to Guards and LLEN DOESN'T WANT TITLE AS PRESEN Johnny Red - Allen, one of the trongest contenders for the state ightweight title that has been rest ng on the brow of Battling Kuuz, he former South Norwalk liquor dealer, for the past two years, comes out with the statement that he doesn't want any title given to him gratiously, as Kunz decided to do when he thought of giving up the ring game. Ked says if Kunz is going to retire let him consent to one last bout, and defend his title against him. And if some promoter can sign them, Allen claims that there will be. no need of giving the title to him as he will put the South Norwalk boy to sleep inside of ten rounds. Red wants a clean claim on the title and if he can get a match with the present title holder he says he will put all the howlers who have been claiming the title out of the run ning, by giving them a chance at anp time. ''DARTMOUTH IN GOOD TRIM FOR PENN SATURDAY Hanover, N. H., Nov. 6 After a day of complete rest the Dartmouth squad took the field yesterday after noon for a stiff signal workout, which was followed by a short scrimmage. The men that took part in the hard game of last Saturday are in first class condition. Coach Spears held his men in the gymnasium for a long talk on plays for the first part of the afternoon, then took them out for a hard work out. The lay-off of Monday and the fact that the team leaves on Thursday makes the time short in which to work up anything new to be used against the Red and Blue. A de parture from the usual tarining plans for the Dartmouth team was an nounced by the Athletic Council. It is planned to have the team leave Hanover on Thursday morning and to stay over night at the New York Athletic Club house at Travers Island. There the men will be given a work out on Friday afternoon. fact that, if the team is taken to a New York hotel, there will be too much excitement for the men on the eve of the game. The coaches want no repetition of the season that ter minated with the fatal Carlisle game at the Polo Grounds. Pete Hartley Will Meet Benny Valger in New Haven Show New Haven, Nov. 5.

The only other bout thus far ar ranged by the Arena people will see Joe Curry, the capable local scrapper exchanging corrliments with Frankie Wilson of Bridgeport. They are siated to battle 10 rounds to a de cision in the semi-final bout. Players League Was flT rro mi rraA Tn 1QCO This is the anniversary of the for mation of the Player's League, that mighty upheaval which threatened for a while to demolish the whole baseball structure and which ended so miserably. It wasonNov. 4 1889, Players declared war and announced the launching of the new league which was lo eievaie ine players and put the National League on the blink.

Although nearly all the stars of the game cast In their lot with the Brotherhood circuit .and some of th Neaional League clubs were reduced to mere okjes, the Player's League didn't eonneet with enough coin t keep going, and threw up the sponge at the end of the season.
