All olhers recrlved lot;a ttian (He for any one position. Hy John B. Foster. Annually the New York Telegram makes a feature of collecting varloua selections of the font hall experts throughout the eaat for an Ideal foot ball eleven. Once It was railed the All-Anierlean elaveu,-aird an all-American eleven la still selected, hut it la not confined to men on the eastern university . Uams, an was the case lu the past. It ta more common now to select an All-Eastern and an All-Went-ern learn; although the c:itlcs of either section are "retwnt about trmnplng In un knmrn preserves. Aa usual there have been some humorous facta In ioiineetlon with the selection of All-Amerlran teams Ihls year. One critic gravely announces that he haa aeen but two men play whom he haa placed on his eleven, yet he la. quite willing to atand by hie Judgment. Two of the men whom he picked happened to play on the eleven which wai represented In the city In which l:e Uvea. If there had been no eleven whar he lived very likely he would have seen none of hla All-Amerlcan tcama play, but ha would have been Just as happy In making hla selection. Michigan (.et a Player. The annual visitation. of Michigan to the east haa resulted in something. A good opportunity has been offered to see what the Michigan players .can do, and there were enough critics free to class the game between Michigan and Pennsyl vania, to give Henbrook a' position as one guard. Perhaps some of the men who mad Benbrook their choice did not see him play, but were Impressed by what others had to aay about the Michigan giant. Kllpatrlck was chosen by every man for the position of left end. There la not an exception In the Vnlted States so far as the writer has been able to glean infor mation. Kllpatrick la the only unanimous choice. Next to him ia Wendell, who la practically a unanimous choice. Some wanted Wendell for left half buck, some for right half back, and some for full back, but as all of tha duties of the back field ar pretty much alike these daya, It didn't matter a great deal for which wing ha was chosen so long as he was placed on tha team. Hrnlth of Harvard took the other end position aa opposed to a scattering vote. As a matter of fact the best end of the year, except Kllpatrick and Smith, was Ollohrlst of tha Navy, and although he did not obtain many votes, he was well qualified to play end for any eleven which was la' exUunca In 1S10. Two Clood Men at tenter. At centar there are two men who easily . led all others In the east, and In the opin ion of tha writer ona I quite as good as tha other. They are Coicns of Pennsyl vania and Morris of Yale. Because Mor ris passed the ball better than any mat) who played for any varsity team, and pawed It well In the two games which - war the supreme test of a good detenu, tha writer prefers him on the All-Amerl can team. Pennsylvania had soma difficult game ta play but none that quite equalled tha contest between Princeton and Yale and that between Yale and Harvard. . Thera Is so little to choose between Howe and Sprackllng tiiat either of them would grace any All-America team. Of tha two Howe Is tha better generul. Hla Judg ment In tha two crucial contests of the season tor Yals waa ona of the greatest feature of a peculiar foot ball season. Bprtukllng Is a better goal kicker and is so good In running with the ball that he would make a half hack quite as accepta able aa any who could be named. That McKay of Brown university and Mercer of Pennsylvania should carry off two of tha back positions in the consensus Is net very surprising. McKay was one of the great backs of tha season. Mercer shorn) well In making headway through the line. If K littler had been faster and surer on the line he would have been ona of the .sterling backs of 1910. Flakier hr Himself. No guard was tha equal of Fisher of Harvard. Ilia work outclassed that of any of hla rivals. For conservative play and accural play there seemed to be no tackle who waa superior to McKay of Harvard. - Ktiough of the cittlca were taken with the brilliant work of Scully of Yale to give him one of tha tackle positions. Within ton of Harvard was In the thl of tha fight for a tackle position, and Brown of the Navy looms up well for guard, and, by tha way, not only a the game against the Army, but In other games which were played during the year Brown showed that ha Is made of the ma terial of which a good guard should be niade.

Omaha Magnate at State League Ses sion Finds One Question Regular Poser. HASTINGS. Neb. tc. ll.-Wlll'am Rottrke of Omaha was able to help the Nebraska Base Pall league maBnates ad just many perplexing matters at their meeting here Wednesday night. He In terpreted several Complex rules governing the executive end of base ball; he gave some valuable advice concerning the makeup of the schedule; he dropped a number of very acceptable hints relative to the signing of players, and he did other things for the good of the league in gen eral. But One question waa propounded that caused the base ball sage of the metropolis to take water. '"Ve ought to fix the salary of umpire." fatd .1. C. Morgan of Seward. "I'd like to ak Mr. Kourke what a go id umpire is worth?" "A good umpire ought to be worth a million dollars," replied the Omaha mag nate, but take It from me, there are no good i.mplrrf. The best thing to do with the umpires Is to shoot "em." Indoor Base Ball Season is Started Young Men's Christian Association Team Beats the Brewery Kepresentatives.

Father P. W. McCarthy, who died In Omaha Wednesday, was one of the mot consistent of base ball fans and a true over of clean outdoor sports. In 18S7 when base ball In Omaha was Just being started he was an enthusiastic booster. Since then he has been a familiar figure at the Omaha base ball games, and even In the last summer when It waa necessary for him to have a man accompany him to the grounds because of his long sickness he was there rooting for Omaha. In base ball and In other outdoor sports ha was a strong advocate for straight play ing and a clean game. And If tha game was not clean the players and promoters were liable to hear from Father Mc Carthy. Ills seat was for year on the south side of the grandstand reserved for him, only the last year ha found It neces sary to give It up and sit In ona of the boxes. fhf Men Principals In Syndicate Which Will Probably I'nrrht.e a foatrolllnar Interest In Ameri can I. man Tram.

Westegaard Wants to Wrestle in Omaha The Chinese national athletic meet a Nanking was not a"owcd to rass without exercising some 'nflucnce on the vered question of the queue. On the voyage down from the north the subject came up for discussion among the traveling athletics The general consensus of opin ion was that the queue was a grave han dicap, and as a reault a number of the competitor cut off their queues before they landed. During the contests (he majority of the students tucked thelt queues Into their belts or the top of their "shorta," but often the queue would slip out and trail behind them in the air. One of the competitors had the misfor tune after clearing the b.ir In the hlirh Jump to dislodge It with his queue. He failed to Jump the same height at sub sequent attempts, and appeared the next day minus the queue. Kansas May Travel East to Find Coach Board of Regents Postpones Action at Lawrence and Question is Up in Air, LAWnE.VCE, Kan., Dec. Id The action of the board of regent of the Cnlversity of Kansas at their recent session In fall ing to take any cognizance of the ques tion of choosing a new coach leaves this question open for continued speculation. It was stated by one of the members of the board that nothing would be done relative to the foot ball situation before a late meeting next spring. The reasons for the long postponement th's member refused to make known, however. As Chancellor Strong has said that Kennedy or Morse are not to be consid ered, the solution of the problem nar rows down to two possible alternatives either a system of graduate reaching will be put into operation, or Kansas wlli follow the lead of Missouri and travel eastward In search of a oapnble tra'ner and coach. And the last named possi bility seems to be the "best guess" Just at this time. , Basket Ball Schedule for Iowa Announced Mixers Break Record for the Metropolitan in Game with Derby s! 1 les Store aRalnst the Storx Malts ami the Yousem's Colts against the Hoye Specials.
