While Willie Ritchie Is to all Intents
and purposes a product of Jan Francisco's
four-round phaso of boxing, It cannot be
said that ho shows to advantage, over
thort distances, Thcro Is a story extant
for that matter that ho recognises as
hiuch and that ho recently decided to

Bob In his later fights around Now

to satisfy himself and he Inaugurated a

Little Wonder, for of all the bedraggled

NKW YORK. Oct. 26.-What Is Prince
ton going to do on the gTldlron this fall?
Head Coseh Andrews says that the Tiger
eleven has a better chance of defeating
beth Harvard and Yale than It has ha-l
In seversl years. Of course, optimism
'Is one of the chief assets of the Tigers
They always were an optlmlstir bunch,
but last year their optimism carried them
through the Yale came, 'when they hum;
up a nice little victory over the boys
from New Haven.
Perhaps It Isn't Just to give optimism
full credit for the Princeton victory
Uluethenthal. "Holey" Raker and I
Witt had something lo do with It, yet
the critics had predicted a Yale victory
before the game.
The same old optimism still obtain
at the New Jersey Institutions. Around
the campus they Ulk of beating Yale and
Harvard, and this year the critic are
willing to admit that the Tigers have
a chance.
Heglnn Senaon 'Well.
At the outset of tho season it was
noticed that Princeton had a line of
championship caliber and this line Im
proved steadily as tho season wore on.
For years past the Princeton line has
been as good ns any In the east. This
year the line Is better than lost, so by
the slmplo process of reasoning we can
arrive at the conclusion that the Prlnep-
ton line Is "some" line, and that the
Harvard and Yale backflelds will have
a big Job on their hands when they at
tempt to break through.
With the line tnken care of. the roaches
turned their attention to the backfleld
and the sad news, went out from Prince
ton that no KicKcr could be round. As
the season wore on the uneasiness which
this news precipitated In the Tiger cafnp
Increased almost to consternation. "Find
ft man who can boot tho ball" was tho
motto of the Princeton coaches,
'Find flood "Hooters."
The great "Hobey" Maker was tried out
as a punter. Now Hobey has a knack
of shooting the ball neatly over tho cross
ing from the thirty or thirty. five-yard
lino, but when It came to booting tho
ball out of 'dangerous terrltoAy, Hobey
couldn't send the pigskin for more than
thirty or thirty-five yards. Ilk simply
wasn't there.
Than someone discovered a youngster
named Giles, who had an Idea that ho
had it toe capable of sending the leather
on a nice long Journey. Mr. Giles tried
It out In practice he made fifty-five and
sixty yards with the wind and forty-five
and fifty against It. Things began to
look promising, but the trouble was that
Odes could not lift tho leather high
enough to give the ends a chance to get
down tho field under the punts so the
coaohes pinned their faith to Hobey
HMKr again. In the Rucknell man beat
ing tho ball forty-five and fifty yards
wiuie linker did not average more than
thirty-five yards.
Last wook tho name of Buss Law burst
vnrth on the Princetan grtatrtm ' a
mushroom after a summer sliov.er. Tho
coaches said "Bum" was the man to
punt for the.Tlgers when they entered
Into the Harvard and Yale clashes. They
said Uuis could go out on the Held and
send that tittle old foot ball fifty yards
or moro without exerting himself. At
that tlino thb far-hsralded "Ruts" was
lit the hospital with a bad foot. Ho
couldn't get Into the Syracuse game and
w nav yet to see him in action,
Cum Handle Punters,
If Law will only live up to his renuta-
tlon which haa emanated chiefly from the
coaching staff. Princeton will be able tw
take care of Itself In a punting duel.
"Holiey" Baker and "Brad" fltreit are
the two twinkling lights In Uv Tiger
backfleld. Last year Raker's upeelalty
was dashing through a broken field or
skirting the ends on wide runs. This
ear "Hobey" appeared In ths camn
carrying ten or twelve pounds more
weight than last year and started in on
line plunging. He ha shown a remark.
able ability for hitting the line hard and
sliding through outside the opposing
tackle. Strelt Is the husky fullback,
weighs about 1SS pound and ts built on
tho regular lines of a, steam roller, and
the men who have tried to tackle him
say he Is Just about as difficult to atop
a tho aforementioned steam roller.
allele has also shown up well In, the
backfleld, while Merrtt at halfback plays
a good game. He shnee particularly in
running interference for Raker when the
is iaiiiiiK ins uaii.
Emmons and Stewart Qaker have both
been tried out at quarter. "Stew" Baker,
who Is a brother to "Hobey," ha shown
some dlsposltlrn to fumble at times, but
the coaches hope to be able to eradicate
this trouble before the big games, Lam
berton Is Jso a good man and, although
he plays in the line, he can punt almost
as .well a Hobey Baker, lacking, how
ever, the latttVa accuracy In drop and
Place kicking.
One of the strongest men In the line
Is E. Trenkeman at center, He ha Im
proved steadily, especially In the are of
passing the ball and this, coupled with
his weight makes him the logical candi
date for the pivot position In the 'big
games. However, there Is a possibility
that he may be shitted to guard.
Play Openly,
This year the Princeton team haa gone
In for a more open style of play than
was formerly used by the Tiger elevens.
The coacht adopted the famous Minne
sota shift, the Invention of Dr. Williams,
end have been drilling the squad In It
for some time. Much Is expected from
this play If it is used against Harvard
and Yale.
The list of coaches now Include the
names of some of Princeton's past (tars.
Uluethenthal has been with the team
since the beginning of the season and
Herbert Reid has also been called In to
assist. The latest addition are Clurry
Cochran of the class of -8S; Cyril Bailln,
'It, and MeFayden. who waa the hero of
the IMS and 1909 teams.
Coombs Collect a Win,
Jack Coombs got a full share of the
world's series money, although he waa
unable to do anything toward winning
the season's championship. The kind act
toward a suffering mate shows there 1
some heart In ball players after all.

NEW YORIC Oct. 25,-It was unfortu-1
nate for Harvard that Bradlec, the
young quarterback, who ha shown such
sensational work this fall, was so seri
ously Injured in n practice gume that he
had to remain out of the lineup for over

to be crippled at this stage of tho game

Old Play Has Been Authorized and

NEW YORK. Oot, S.-Foot ball fans
lobkJng for the spectacular will have
their fill this season. The on-slde kick,
again made legal, Ib being quietly tried
at several of the big center, and coaches
plan to make this daring play one of
tho greutest ground gainers in the
championship games.
The llttlo4ellows, always waiting to
develop Ideas from the more prominent
elevens, haven't revealed tills play yet,
for the . simple reason that the leading
teams refused to divulge their strength
at this means of gaining ground. Ac
cording to report, Penn State haa be
come very adept nt the on-slde kick,
and the Princeton coaches, always
kindly disposed to 'this play, have assid
uously drilled their charges in the best
way to recover the short kick.
The present open field style of game
gives the on-etdo kick a big chance of
gaining. 'While the play Is Haxarddua
It not properly timed, it is nevertheless
a powerful means of advancing the ball
If the 'defending team Is strung out In
a wtde formation.
Una Winning- Fnvor.
Qridlron authorities figure that the on-
slde kick rms three chances to one of
going through successfully. ThU Is based
on the advantaao the kicking side has of
recovering the ball. The play, while de
pending a lot on luck, Is simple.
The ntta-klnd team elects to try an
on-stdo kick. The booter receives a di
rect pass from the center. The entire
backfleld three players take their places
to the side of tho kkVor, Each maa on
the lino, of courso, takes care of hi op
ponent. The scheme Is to shoot the ball
over the line to one aide, out of reach
of the secondary line. With the kick the
opposing end Is sucked Into the play and
the three men on tho kicker's side break
through to recover the ball.
It correctly-executed the ball Is placed
out of reach of the defending backfleld.
the only man having a chance to get
to It being the halfback on the extreme
end. The odds are three to one In favor
of the ,klcker?s tttm recovering the. ball,
based solely on the ability of either one
of the three men to outrace the defend
ing half getting to -the bounding ball.
The element of success Is large for the
attacking eleven tf 'the ball bounces either
ahead or in back. If It Jutrtpa too far It
I likely to travel out qf bound. In which
case the defending side would receive It
It the ball bounds In toward ths scene
of play It Is probable that the defensive
halfback would be the first to cat oh It.
This year the rules allow the ball to be
kicked for all distances there are no lim
itations. Haa Had Stormy Career.
The tricky onslde kick haa had a stormy
career. It waa originally Invented by Dr.
Cart Williams, the old Penn coach. George
lirooks, the present Penn coach, became
so proficient in the play that the Red and
Blue stood Its opponents on their heads
with this play. Coaches, claiming the on
side kick too dangerous, refused to take
It up, and It was not until 1M7. when
Krfdle Harlan of Prince4on accomplished
miracles with It. Harlan could boot with

ball, and the Tigers reeled otf niinyladlan mile champion, will go that dls
yards' gain on this pla-
eventually the spectucular short kick
Eastern Star Quarterbacks
doesn't know what fear is.
The two great rivals of Harvard, Yale
and Princeton, are also fortunate In the
possession of quarterbacks who can be
depended upon to put up a brilliant play
at any stage of the game. "Stew"
Buker of Princeton, brother of Captain
"Hobey." began to edge -Into tho lime
light last season, but was pretty much
overshadowed by the resourceful "Ho
bey." But this fall the youngest mem
ber of the house of Raker ha demon
strated that he Is entitled to an equal
gave way to the forward paw. Two years
ago the .rules wero amonded to allow the
on-slde kick to be used, but when.lt was
necessary for the ball to strike the
ground before any player of the kicking
team could recover it.
As a further means of opening the
gamo to the spectators, as wall as elim
inating the dangerous features, the on-
slde kick was placed on the rule books
with but few restrictions. It may be
kicked for any distance and the chances
of the attacking- team recovering It have
been made easier.
Hawkeyes Astounded
By Showing Made by
the Cornhuskersl
IOWA CITY, la., Oct. 2S.-(Bpeclal.)
Iowa's foot ball squad, with four games
already ployed, wU Indulge In a two
weeks rest before It meets Its !t three
foes, Indiana, Ames and Nebraska, on the
lost three Saturdays of the season. The
Indiana and Ames games will be played
on Iowa field, giving an opportunity for
local rooters to see their team In action
In a big agme for the first time this year.
Indiana Is looked upon as an equal foe.
The Hoostera have much the better of the
weight, and Iowa will have to make up
the advantage In speed and open-work
plays If Sheldon's men are to be downedr
Coaches who have seen the Indiana team
in action describe'lt as a powerful com
bination, with great possibilities. The
Hawkeyes, with their two weeks' of rest,
should be at the top of their game by
that time, however,
A bad slump overtook the team durlna
the last week, due to reaction after the
Chicago game. The freshmen repeatedly
outplayed the varsity In scrimmage, and
supporters of the Hawkeyes were not con
fident when the eleven left to play
Northwestern at Evanston. The effects
of this will be worn' off by the time of
the Indiana game, however.
Nebraska Is picked as the strongest
foe yet to be encountered. The defeat
administered to Minnesota, by the Corn
huskera caused a big stir hero, and made
It evident that the locals will have to Im
prove steadily from this time on If they
expect to be In the fight at all. The
Nebraska ns have never encountered
Iowa since Hawley took the coaching Job
here, and consequently may find one or
two new foot ball tricks awaiting them.
Local coaches tcok occasion to deny
that Iowa made a touchdown on Chicago
by hiding the ball. The Iowa touch
down was made by continued-use of the
spread play, one of the widest-open playa
known to foot bait and one which gives
the best kind of nn opening for new root
ball. Later In the game Houghton, the
Iowa center, was knocked down by Des
Jardten as he was passing- the ball, and
Wilson picked up the leather and ran to
the one-yard line.

NEW YORK, Oct. S.-Although the
1014 reliability tour of the American Au
tomobile association hasn't been much
discussed the report has been started
again that In IMS the American Automo
bile association plans to have Its run from
New York to the Pacific coast In order
to have a' part In the Panama-Pacific
celebration. The plan was spoken of
first some, months ago before even the
113 run was under way and only recently-W.
J..Moran.of .New York talked
about It to manufacturers of automobiles
In the middle west.
The chances are that the route of the
Lincoln highway will be ueed. This is
very much the same as the road from
New York to Los Angeles that XV. O. L.
Westward, representing he American
Automobile association ha been travers
ing in a pathfinder.
It la reported that thera la such en.
thuslasm .over a tour-through the south
ern -section of this ToaA across the con
tinent. that 100. entries could be got with
out much trouble, it la thought.
that the support of the promoter of the
Panama;Paclflo exhibition would help to
bring such a tour to actual being. "The
attitude ot the southerners shows beyond
me snaaow'of a dotfbt" says "Senator"
Aiorgan. "that there are bound to b
several well defined transcontinental
highways equally as good as the rock
road which Is to be dedicated a a last

'Among the other sections ot the,
country there are other mediums of

"It Is planned, to enlist team
in the American Automobile association
iuur jTeaening various cities along
the different transcontinental highway
routes. Entries of two and three cars
say. representing Indianapolis or De

ot attention on such a tour and would
be commented on In all of the hi- news
papers and magazines throughout the
"Texas, and In fact all of the states
throughout the great southwest and
southern Atlantlo states, really have
good roads." (
It is said that the proposed tour Is
Intended in no way to detract Interest
from the worthy Lincoln highway proj
ect, but Is to generate enthusiasm along

will not die out with the realisation of

against a starchy proposition when they
collide with tho strong Council Bluffs
champions, but they are under the Im
pression that t'Aty are as good as they
make thorn and their friends across the
river want to keep their glimmers open.
