THE GRIDIRON Great Sbakevp is tbe Yalt Turn Wm Mad By the Coaches , Yesterday. New Haven, Nov 17. At least four changes In the Yale eleven are likely before the Yale-Harvard gsme Saturday. Captain Burch Is almost certain to take his former position ai ngnt end instead of Coy, and Kll Patrick and Coy will probably dlvd9 leu end instead of Haines. Coy will ue usea to receive rorward passna when pluyed at end and to do the distance punting and the heavy plunging when used at fullback. Kll- patrlck has played fullback till this year and is therefore equally at home at end or in the back field. Hobbs will replace Lilley at left lackie. Lilley was unequal to the heavy Princeton attack of Saturday and could hardly be expected to stand up to the Harvard assaults next Saturday. At . Quarterback chunces favor Allan Corey holding the posi tion, uorey was the only one of the three Yale quarters tried Saturday who stemmed the tide of poor passes and Inferior generalship. In the backfleld the coaches talk of placing Daly at right halfback. They look at the possibility of the game hinging on the possibility of a neia goal and, therefore, of reserv ing wneaton for the occaslou. He Is me only dependable drop kicker on the Yale squad. mo iuie eleven went Sunday 'to Hastings-on-the-Hudson, the country estate of DeWltt Cochrane, Yale '97, mj remain till this afternoon.

BRICK, Captain and Treasurer GIRL FOOTBALL REFEREE. They Say She Has Mike Thomnson Beaten a Whole Block. Toledo0., Nov 17 Skirts swished and a tam-o'-shanter bobbed merrily Saturday afternoon at. Cent park, where Sophia Henry, a Toledo girl, refereed a football game be tween the West Toledo and Lincoln elevens. Rushing pell mell into a hot scrim mage, she pulled the ball out of the hands of a player who had tried to Illegally take it, put it where it ought to be, and whistled for play to go on. The teams were so startled when she jumped into them that they forgot their signals. A well fitting sweater, neat blue skirt and nobby "tam". were not in her way at all, and the way she stepped around and took CArA nf niu if was enough to convince the hundreds-! present that she knew the rules and was there to enforce them. v "The ball goes hack to the place where the play started, and Llncolns are penalized fifteen yards," she yell ed above the babble of the players. What for?" demanded the Lin coln captain angrily. 'The ball " "Never mind the talk the ball was dead as soon at It hit the ground, as it was an attempted forward pass," came the snapping answer, and the Lincoln leader went to his posi tion. There was a big crowd on hand tc see the fun. When it was announced that a woman was to referee some thought It was a joke. Sophia Hen ry, however, was on the Job. It is the first instance on record where a wom an has refereed a game on the grid iron. SIX KILLED IN MINE. Car With Engineer Plunges Down Two Hundred and Twonty-five Fiat. , Pltisburg. ' Nov. 17.

THE PUGILISTS Beit in Nw England and Best in Amelia Art to Meet Soon. Unless present- negotiations fall Abe Attell and Jim Drlscoll will fight twenty-five rounds on New Year's Day In San Francisco for the feath erweight championship of the world. Drlscoll, who Is believed to be the best featherweight England has pro duced in many years, made bis first appearance In this country last Fri day night, when he met Matty Bald wlu of Boston in a six round bout at a local plub. Baldwin was over weight and not at his best, but Drls coll was so easily the master that it was apparent to unprejudiced Judges that the little Briton was an exceptionally clever pugilist". ' Several chronic fault finders who never knew a fighter from a fiddle declared that Drlscoll was not much and did not deserve any praise, be cause Baldwin was a 'piece of punk' but the fact that Drlscoll showed speed, cleverness and brains, togeth er with pluck and hitting ability, convinced persons who had no axes to grind that he did not come here with an inflated reputation. Drls coll is under the protecting wing of Charles J. Harvey, who also mana ges the affairs of Owen Moran, the English featherweight, who has held his own already in two battles, one of twenty-five and another of twenty three rounds, with Attell. Moran insists that he and not Drlscoll is the English featherweight champion, although he admits that he and Drlscoll never have met. Moran was defeated by Joe Bowker, who was the recognized champion in England at the time, and later Drls coll put It all over Bowker twice in succession, thereby winning the title. Moran says he will fight Drlscoll In this, country , to (. settle this question of supremacy, but he probably will have to wait, as Drfscoll came here for. the express purpose of making a match with Attell, the American champion. , ... Attell, . one of , the best, boxers in the world, is easily the best man at his weight in this country, but the fact that he could not make much headway in his two battles with Mo ran would make it appear that Dris colP is entitled to a match. It all depends- upon how much money Is offered by the 'Frisco promoters and how much there 4s in it for Attell. If. Attell -does .not- haggle over" the weight question, which is his custom a match can be quickly made, but It is believed that Attell will not sigh articles: until he has secured a number of conditions of his own making. . Drlscoll says he will fight Attell twenty-five rounds ;or to a finish at any weight from 122 to 130. That looks like a real business proposition, and. sporting men say Attell will have to fight or show the white feather. If the match Is made It goes without saying that Moran will be hot foot. after the winner.,' It has been definitely settled that the finish fight between : Tommy Burns and Jack . Johnson- forj the heavyweight" championship "of the world will take place at Sydney, N. S. W.. on December 26. The men will enter the ring at 11 o'clock In the morning so that, they can have plenty of time in which to settle their differences. As Burns will re ceive $30,000 in cold cash whether he wins or loses It. is Just possible that he may show some indifference as to the result. -Burns Is a pretty clever, chap when it comes to get ting, the money. Suppose he should lose this fight on a foul? Would another mill to be decided at Frisco be- worth a big purse? Ring experts in various parts of the United States as they discuss this Burns-Johnson affair are now inclined to believe that there may be "something do ing." Time will tell, also the Aus tralian fight critics, who already have received a tip. to. watch for de velopments. For two years pugilism has been a craze in Paris. Frenchmen have come to regard ring contests as New Yorkers look upon the horse show. The glove . fights In . the French capital are attracting im mense . crowds which Include many persons well known in political and business circles. Sam McVey,, a col- ored heavyweight from California, this country. Is the star in Paris. He has been beating all kinds of mixed ale and back number fighters until he wears a heavy crown of laurel. Last Saturday night McVey In. the presence of probably 6,000 spectators tackled an alleged pugilist named Herbert Synott of Austra lia. The "fight" was scheduled to go twenty rounds, but in - the fifth McVey scored a clean knockout. BUl Papke, the American middleweight champion could not stop this fellow McVey In a few punches. "It must be easy money In Paris New "Haven fight fans will have the opportunity before long of wit nessing Young Shea, the fast Water bury boxer, in a mix-up before one of the West Haven clubs. Shea has many admirers In New Haven gained by his clever work In several prelim inary bouts there within the past couple of years. He is one of the fastest In the state at his weight and always furnishes a good show. Shea will be matched later with one of New Haven's fast boys as a prelimi nary bout for six rounds. He is in good condition and ready any time to get into the ring. MILLIONAIRE BALL PLAYER Ty Cobb's Wife Said to bo Sole Be. efkiary Under Father's Will. New Orleans, La. .

POLO GAMES Report is Now That the Big Cities Are to Oafinize League Other Newt. "Providence Is to be Included, It is said, In the National Roller Polo league to be organized for the season of 1909-10. The circuit will Include Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburg, Providence and Boston. "The league will have the backing of the Professional Exhibition Roller Skaters' association of America, which already has special rinks in Trenton, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington. It is said by Earl Reynolds, secretary-treasurer of the association, that the Metropolitan rink in New York will be utilized and that in Boston the Park Square building will be bad. Mr Reynolds who is now filling an engagement at Keith's, says that there Is plenty of money behind the scheme and that It Is the purpose of the association to place roller polo on a proper basis. To accomplish this, he says, there will be radical changes made in the rules of the game. They will Include prohibition of playing when on the feet. That is to say, the men must be on the rollers all the time, and all broad and special shoes will be barred. Moreover, the rollers niu be of uniform size, front and rear. "The rinks which the association is using and which it will put up in the new cities will have surfaces 120 by 60 feet. This will, Mr Reynolds asserts, allow for play behind the goals. The general plan for these rinks provides for reserved seats im mediately In front of the surfaces, with raised seats back of these on the four sides. "The scheme is to wait until the present New England season is out, and then George Cunningham o Pawtucket is to make up two teams of 12 players, the pick of the present New England League, and take them through the cities where it is pro posed to establish the National league teams. This will be done, Mr Reynolds says, to give the local fane an idea of what may be expected when the national season opens. "Charles L. Franks, Fowler of Washington and 'Doc' White of the Chicago White Sox will, Mr Reynolds says, be in charge of the Washington rink. The Whiteside boys will look after the game in Boston, Mr Rey nolds asserts. "Locally it is proposed to lease land near the center of the city and erect a ring similar to those which the association has put up in other cities. "Mr Reynolds played in a team with Cunningham in 1S86-87, and was a member of the Mascot team of Lafayette. Ind., in which he made three goals from rush in 20 se' In those days three goals consti tuted a game. He has been before the public as a skater since boy hood." Providence Journal. WORCESTER WON.

UNFAIR RULINGS ALLEGED Permanent Suspension of J. C. Carpen ter by British Olympio Committee the Chief Caut of the Break Jamas E. . 8ullivan Is Re-lcted Praaidant, and His Work as Amerioan Commissioner In London Is Heartily Approved by Aaaociatas. New York, Nov. 17. All athletic re lations between this couutry and Eng land are severed as the result of the action taken by the Amateur Athletic uulou at its annual meeting at the Ho tel Astor when It refused to recognize the dlsqualltieatlon of J. C. Carpenter, the Cornell university runner who was suspended for life by the British offi cials. ' Immediately after the 400 meter race at the recent Olympic games in the Loudon stadium Carpeuter was charg ed with "fouling Lieutenant Hals- welie," an English runner, was dis qualified from the race and suspended. At the annual meeting of the British Amateur Athletic 'association, which followed, t bis ruling was upheld, the American athlete permanently sus pended and the American "union noti fied. When the matter came up before the meeting the English ruling was ignor ed and the following resolution unani mously passed : Be It resolved. That the secretary of the Amateur Athletic union be instructed to communicate with the secretary of tha Amateur Athletic association of Great Britain acknowledging the receipt of his letter of Oct. & setting- forth its disquali fication of Carpenter and replying that this union declines to recopntie its dis qualification of Carpenter. It also passed a resolution prohibit ing uuy association from giving per mission to a registered athlete to com pete iu any international competition unless such meeting shall be approved by the Amateur Athletic union. After heariug the report of James E. Sullivan, American commissioner to the Olympic games in London, the Amateur Athletic union adopted a res olution giving its hearty approval and Indorsement to Mr. Sullivan's actions and to those of the American Olympic committee. As an indorsement of James E. Sul livan's official connection with the Olympic games iu London In July and of bis manner of handling the Ameri can team he was re-elected as presi dent of the Amateur Athletic union by a unanimous vote of the delegates. WILLIE HOPPE IS A VOTER. Doesn't Want to Be Called a Boy Has Vaudeville Act. " New York, Nov. 17 "I'm not run ning away from anybody who wants to play me at either style of 18-inch balkllne, but it looks to me as if it is going to be a dull winter In billiards" said Willie Hoppe, who is to appear in a new vaudeville act St the Fulton theater In Brooklyn this week. He said:" "After the finish of tne base ball season I retired to Jersey, and seldom saw Broadway. You see I'm a regular man now. Voted for the first time this fall, and they probably will quit calling be a boy now. I'm not, so far past twenty-one that I have forgotten my birthday. I've been husky enough for some time to hold my own and more when it came to rolling the ivories, and I hope to get some good matches this winter. How ever, I am not crazy about titles. They don't get me much." Out at RIdgefield, N. K where the Hoppes reside, Willie has a private table, but he hasn't been practicing much for several months. Late In the summer he submitted to an oper ation in which he lost some of the small bones in his nose. As a result of this operation he dropped some weight, and he has been busy since trying to get It back by living an out door life. He appears a bit peaked but just as handsome as ever. As a vaudeville star he will "look" and "dress the part" well. "I am putting in some good licks now," declared the Juvenile expert "and it won't be long before I'll be In my old form. I don't bar anyone at either game. There Isn't much chance of Schaefer coming east, as he Is in delicate health. Sutton is running i room out In Chicago and Morning- star is up In Canada, somewhere. I don't believe Schaefer can play his old game, though I see that he has written to friends in Chicago . and talks of playing again. "When I beat Sutton for the 18.2 championship I said I never would play another championship match of 500 points, and I still stick to that. Class doesn't always tell In these short gallops. Oftentimes a player finds a match table slower or faster than the one he has been practicing on, and he cannot strike his gait at once. Besides, the expense of run ning a championship match is taken out of the receipts, and as a rule there Is not much left for the players to cut up. "I would just as soon play matches where no championship was at stake, but whether the title Is Included or not there Is one condition that I will Insist on the game must not be leas than fifteen hundred points, divided into not less than three nights play. Any of them that want me on those term can get me just as soon as they put up a side bet that will make It worth my while. In the meanwhile I'll try to plug along on my latest venture." , Hoppe 's vaudeville act is an exhibi tion of difficult masses and exhibition shots on a regular table. Mirrors are arranged back of the table so that oc cupants of orchestra chairs can see the shots perfectly.

Irving Brokaw of the St Nicholas , Skating club was the only American figure skater to try for the Oylmplc ' title a little more than a week ago at the Princess club, London. He won the American championship a couplfj of years ago, but the figures here and abroad are different, so Brokaw prac ticed the foreign maneuvers all last ; winter. In the compulsory skating there were six figures, and after th points were summed up Brokaw got -no better than fifth place. The win ner was N. Salchow of Stockholm, who has won both the world and Eu ropean championships Six times and ia the present holder of both titles. R. Johansen and P. Thonen of Swe den were second and third respective ly; E. K.. Orelg of England was fourth. , . - Though, defeated, the English critics- think well of the American and are of the opinion If he trained for a couple of years at the forelrs figures he would come out ahead. In the free skating Brokam introduced something new to the spectators In the way of twoplns and jumps. He skated the easy figures well, but failed In the rockers, n which he ev hlbited change of edge. Mrs flyers of London won the ladles' flan re championship easily. . Try Democrat Want 1
