"They caught us unawares twice," he continued in reference to the 19J6 snd IKS Carnegie victories, "but we're taking them in stride this year snd we're looking for a lot m e stuff from Carnegie than their games so far have shown." Accordingly, he called nut his shock troops tonight and put them to work in a short offensive dummy scrimmage. The varsity will report tomorrow for three davs of practice. The squad leaves Thursday night for Pittsburgh. Nick Lukats and Steve Banas, the two injured fullbacks, will not be ready for the game Saturday and Capt.

Purdue is nut taking the Maroon encounter lightly by any means, for Stagg has producd too many upsets of Boilermaker hopes. ordered an intensive defensive scrimmage session in which the squad was given a taste of the type of plays it can expect to meet Saturday. For the first time this season, Purdue expects to have its full strength ready to put on the field Saturday. The series of injuries that beset the squad before the Illinois and Wisconsin games seems to have vanished and Kizer probably will use two complete back field units. CHICAGO, Oct. Zfi.-t.n-tWh A. A.

The Maroons held up in fair shape against Indiana for two periods Saturday, but fell apart in the final quarter under the weight of Hoosier replacements.

Several times we have mentioned him in the Monday roll call, but fumbled this time.

F t 3 I AT Carl Cramer, sensational Ohio State sophomore shown abovs already lias won a regular assignment and is expected to cause Indiana grid men plenty of (rouble in the Crimson's home-coming day contest Saturday at liloomjngton.

Comiskey and Byron (Ban) Johnson, joined in death today, shook the world of baseball with a mighty friendship and a bitter quarrel that lasted almost to the grave. As Damon and Pythias they elevated themselves to powerful positions in the national pastime; as bitter enemies, both fell from their pinnacles with broken hearts and shorn of their great influence. Baseball always will remember the classic, stories of their great, friendship and their explosive hreak which saw the two sill admiring each other from a distance but refusing fiercely to admit it. It was while "Commy" was head nf the old Cincinnnti Rods and Ban" wrs a sports writer in Cin cinnati that the friendship blossomed and fcrew. "Ban, his head awhirl wi'.h Ideas that soon made him the virtual dictator of organized base-bsll, would stroll Into "Commy'i" office and stay until the early hours of morning. Dans Are Realized. Together they planned big things that came true when Johnson made a great success out of the American League and "Commy" owned the White Sox. Their friendship became the talk of baseball and they were Just as necessary to each other as a bat to a baseball In a game. The first break between the two, a herald of their titanic ntruggle, came with a touch of comedy during 1907. "Ban" came back from a fishing trip in Wisconsin with a fine string of bass for "Commy." As a messenger waited to take the fish to his old friend, an umpire strolled into "Ban's" office and reported that Outfielder Patsy Daugherty of the White Sox had insulted him during a game that day. "Here, take this with you tn Comiskey," Ban shouted to the messenger. It was an order suspending Daugherty indefinitely. Comiskey fumed and exploded when ha read the order. "What does Ban expect me to play in the outfield? These fish?" Reconciled at Meeting. Outfielders were scarce in those days, especially players like Daugherty, and Comiskey refused to speak to Ban until two years later when both attended a meeting. Each greeted the other with choked voices. "Commy" danced about with joy and immediately introduced a resolution raising Ban's salary as head of the American League. And the raise went through. The fight over Pitcher Jack Quinn in 1918 was the dynamite that finally shattered their friendship, When the Pacific Coast League canceled its schedule because of the war that season, Comiskey set out to get Quinn, then a budding star with Los Angeles. Johnson advised Comiskey that in his opinion all he had to do was to sign Quinn as he was termed a free agent. Comiskey did and Quinn won seven straight games for the White Sox. But the New York Yankees stepped in, bought Quinn's contract from Los Angeles, and were upheld by Johnson and the late Garry Hermann. Johnson admitted his mistake but Comiskey never forgave him, and their famous feud was on. During the world series of 1919 reports came to Comiskey that his team was "throwing" games to the Cincinnati Reds. Instead of going to Johnson, president of the own league. Comiskey took the matter up with John Heydler, head of the National circuit. Heydler advised Johnson, but Ban was reported to have dismissed the mattter with "Commy's just sore because his team is losing, that's all." Breach Is Widened. Then when the truth came out-how seven 'White Sox players had "sold Commy down the river" the breach was widened between the two. Comiskey blamed Johnson while the stormy Ban fumed. Finally, Comiskey added the last element in the- noted break by casting; the deciding vote to oust Johnson as head of the national baseball commission in favor of Kenesaw M. Landis. Comiskey came out of that meeting all but sobbing, his friends said afterwards, while Johnson stormed out of baseball forever. Close friends of the "Old Roman" today revealed that he did not carry his grievance to the grave ; j When Johnson died last March Lou Comiskey asked his father if he should represent him at the funeral. . "Yes, yes, by all means, do," Co- miskey'i voice sobbed back, "It ia AW ' i. u A the greatest sorrow of my life that I m too ill to go. I loved that man, you know." FINERAL IN CHICAGO. EAGLE RIVER, Wis., Oct. 26. (United Press) Charles A. Comis key, owner of the Chicago White Sox and one of the founders of the American League, who died in a coma at 1:30 this morning, had been seriously ill for several years. He was 72 years old. His immediate illness was a combi nation of heart and kidney trouble, but his failing health dated as far back as 1914. During the last several years he had no active part in running the White Sox and spent most of his time here on his 600-acre sand lake estate, He is survived by his son, J. Louis Comiskey, -16, treasurer of the WTiite Sox, who is expected to take over the ownership of the club. The body was taken to Chicago tonight and burial will be held there either Thursday or Friday, the date to be determined later by his son. VENN GRIDMEN BEST. PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Oct. 26.

ARMY PROBABLY WILL CARRY ON WITH GRID CARD WEST POINT. N. Y.. Oct. 26.-W) An Army football squad, carrying on, hoping for the best, drilled with the stoicism of soldiers as Cadet "Dick" Sheridan died this afternoon in a New Haven hospital. His teammates did not know, as they went through their maneuvers, that the little end who suffered a broken neck after a diving tackle late in the Yale game had passed away. Later they met with their officers and heard the news they had been dreading to hear aincs Saturday night. Second only in every mind to the sadness and regret over Sheridan's death was the conjecture as to what course Army would pursue with respect to the games remaining on the football schedule. Decision as to whether the schedule will be played out remains in the hands of Maj. Gen. William R. Smith, superintendent of the academy, , l,0X),ftO Involved. The feeling; among; the officers was that Army, committed to a schedule that includes such major contests as an invasion of Pittsburgh Nov. 14 and battles with Notrs Dams and Navy in New York Nov. 28 and Dec. 12, respectively, would carry on. It is estimated that in addition to all the preparations that have been made, the inconveniences that would be done opponents, about $1,000,000 in receipts would be involved in the cancellation of the Pittsburgh, Notre Dame and Navy games, in addition to the contests here with Colorado college Saturday, Louisiana State Nov. 7, and Ursinus Nov. 21. Of this sum at least $400,000, the estimated receipts of the Navy game, are scheduled to be turned over to charity, for the relief of the unemployed. Under the circumstances it is expected pressure will be brought to bear from all sources to have the schedule played out, despite the natural inclination of cadets and officers alike tn suspend all football activities Immediately out of respect for their dead comrade. began Its preparations for the annual game with Butler Saturday at Indianapolis.
