fr iu&i2b t iir Department's action manes serious Problem For College Athletics 4 'BX2S&r!.,'J,-Z " " 1 ' JmFFIGULT PROBLEM FACES Sr COLLEGES ON MILITARY ' Whether Intercollegiate Sports ?Gan Be Continued in Face of xffns Setback Remains to Be Seen. s . WOULD BE ERROR - TO DISCONTINUE War Department Hardly Can r;:Cwlail Them Altogether tAfier Earlier Stand on Mai Her fBY EDWARD R. BUSHNELL. XJmversities and colleges of America have never had a more difficult problem to solve in an ath letic ensc than that thrust upon them by the war department to recon truct almost overnight their entire curriculum to fit the military need of the government and to tetTiRintain their intercollegiate ath ictic At this writing there has been no word from Washington as lo the attitude of. the government- on the retention of athletics. All the col leges know is that practically ev ery undergraduate who returns to college does so a a mem her of flio p;;: students' army training corps. A a uutn tuacnis win oe kuojocl 10 the orders ot tho military authorities who will specify to a great extent ist what duties they will pursue and liovv they shall spend their da Under Military Supcrvlnlon. It Is assumed that every day will be a military day, with certain hours xor ever duty. It means that students will bo supervised by the military authorities just as strictly as. are the men In the' great army easts A conference was held at lattsburg a few days ugo between a1r j ''Jt?0 eauciiiionai unu military nu-fi v. fyorities of a great many universl-f.tu of tho enst and representatives fcf the war department to (leti:milnj '; ;J;hat should constitute the eiirifcu-Uva 'jm. That, however, does not set- V-le the athletic problem. Apparently y-:fS ft Is something which every col-vrviego must decide for Itself. if It seems to the writer that it -Should be a mistake for the eol-rtges to abandon Intervolleglate SfA'-:-5"-Ort unless tlio war department clflcilly requests it. Ami it Ls i-. . "0d to conceive of the war de-.?... - i. ?tmcnt making such a request. y1" the other hand, it would seem &.v.'. part of wisdom for the depart-';j;t to Utilize the athletic system equipment of the colleges to nen fullest extent. r'r . .. - "B ,t must be borne in mind that the '' "'" jb In the draft from IS to 21 iirs of use who return to college J-X complete their preparation for -.military service" lutve been accus-; itomcd to, and will need, athletics and-, recreation. The military pro- B ram will undoubtedly make pro-: vieion for proper recreation, but the uncertainty centers in what will .bathe attitude of the war department toward the Intercollegiate foot ball and other schedules which have : already been arranged. For the most fiart the colleges made preparations ong ago whereby they could can-v:'cel all schedules whenever the war situation dictated such action. Would lie Int'onsisti-iil. It would seem Inconsistent if the . War department took any course other than to inierft-re as little as - possible with the normal lite- u the colic k:s. The principal reason for commandeering the educational institutions was to lessen t he expense of developing the new -army, and at the same time to utilize the . higher type of men thus ."ocurcd for officer material. The only possible objection in rarrying cm.t cx-isttng iniercollegiute schedules .would be the loss of time required on trips away from home and the distractions which usiia lly aecom-1 pany the big football panics. Hut the precedents supplied by West Point and Annapolis would seem to ; indicate that the government would adopt a tolerant attitude toward the continuation of college sports. .: It Is the consensus of opinion in, all quarters that our system of ath-: letic competition is largely responsible for the splendid lighting (unl- Itles of the men fi.-m West' Point . : and Annapolis, together with the millions who hav heen raduateil "from the great i ruining ramps since our entry into the war. It is in-::.conceivable, -iliere:vre, iliat the government would arbitrarily refuse to '.use so powerful a factor in the development of its newest army. -V Change the Code.. 'Assuming that college sports con- tlnue. at least for the fall, it is al-.inoat certain that there will be a vholeHalo emnscuhitiou of cliniljil- ity codes, undoubtedly the govern-J bitoi woiiki auoiiiin lie ileSinmin ..rule' together whh nil oth-r eliui- bllity restrict ions.

Hod Sox after one day's rest. It was figured in baseball headquar ters that the Cubs pitcher would either Douelaa nf lienrlrw with the former the logical choice. Hut the Cub pilot was determined to invade Lhiston with two-victories, if possible, and rather than take a chance on one of his rlght-hand- lii's. put it up to the big left-hander That VaUIThn litxt is n t trlhnln.1 t.i. the fact that he was outwitted, not outpitclicd. That trick or Scott's was the turning point that gave the winning run to Boston. Hunched Hits Tell story. Had Jim heen guided by the Goddess of Fortune past the fourth inning, the single run scored by his mates -would havo spelled the verdict. All told, the Ked Sox climbed him for seven hits, but four of thoni were grouped in the period that turned the complexion of tho whole nation, as It trunsplred. Knowing men of baseball feel out ready to quit on the Cubs now, even John Heydler, acting president of the National league. admitting that the prospects look- id exceedingly gloomy for his nr-; ion's success after today's everse. At the same ttnio it In asserted that .Mitchell's move in starting ! Vaughn so soon was the wise thing o do. If the Cubs could go into loston. It was argued, with two t Ictories ucninst one defeat and "yler. hero of the Cubs lone de-luion. resilnir over ftimdnv. there would he odds in their favor de-snitu tho fact that the Red Sox e terrors on their own lot. Mitchell, however, has led twice now and both of his trumps were taken. No blame can be leveled at Vaughn, though, for tho situation that exists. When a pitcher cook throtlirh IS Inntnir.n nf hnw. ball and allows but three runs ire Is nothlne wrong with his work, even If he is the loser both times. Kvcn tn On Jloth Count. At the stnrt of the series It was admitted that the winner would be established larcnty on the superiority of lis pitching, with the batting playini; a secondary enguge-ment. Thus far the pitching srcsi.s to be equal and the batting also, but in the games played to date, the lied Sox have placed their limited blows to better purpose. Today, the Cubs were swinging against Mays's medium sneed with the .sume veiicnietice that marked t hrlr attack on Joe ll-.ish's blinil-hiir fast ball vesierday. The resist was. pop .'lies fell Into the waiting hands of the inner-defense nun or looped to the gardeners for easy tasks to perform. ;JI except tin; cni-sli o:T t'askert's bat that Wliitemiiu took deep In his wis t tire. Vaughn resorted to his well regulated curve ball that broke in or out. cut the middle of the plate or. in that fourth inning, bounced off the Ited Hox bats. J 1 is control was excellent, ono pass nnd his Jolting of Whiteman. totaling his lapse of aim. Where History Itcpented. Rut as on Thursday, when a base on balls developed into the run that beat him. Jim saw his wounding of Whitman sink him Into a hole that all the best efforts of his club could uo was emini, leaving the honest-goodness run by the Red Sox Separate him from thn verdict That's baseball, however, and the j-u mix, piaying ror every point and reiusing to become ruffled, never overlooked an opening. Everything they could get out of the uprising of the fourth was extracted, the toll a. ball club experienced In world's minus can ue expected to exact from one whoso fall classic performers .ie iiiucn smaiior in numuer.

More than the more entertainment that will be provided Is seen In the International wrestling match that ls to be staged at the state faTr on Sunday afternoon and evening, as the big feature of closing day. Those Interested in sporting events have long wondered at .he slow return of Detroit, onco a great mat center, to support, of the grappling game. The crowdu that this tournament will draw, and the enthusiasm that it may evoke, will gauge its possibilities. Director Louis Meyer, of New York, who was brought here bv Manager G. W. Dickinson to make the matches and to conduct the show, is the niaa who got the wrestling game Ohck In the big city. He believes that the way the sport, with boxing, has been taken up in the army camps means a great revival in interest as well as the developnent of a new crop of good native talent.

BY JOE S. JACKSON. Foremost among the many things that the world series now in progress has determined is that nono ot the various schemes projected for conttnuanco of major league profes sional ball, In 1919, will be adopted at least not with touring teams,) or under any ot the methods thus! far suggested. j Lack of intercut, as deduced , from tho attendance, has convinced those few magnates that the best thing to do until the war Is ended and the soys start comlntr home le to keep the park gates closed. or to utilize the fields for semi-pro leagues and tournaments. There were not many of tho club (iwiiors who had nope or desire to go on next year. Thcro are none now. except poBslbiy Griffith, who la the confirmed proponent of professional bail on .professional parks, without interruption. WhyCrowd Ijtw't Tliere.

"Those wno are on this side have other work that they cannot neglect: And tliurc are the others who have mutters closer to their hearts 10 worry over ihan the result of a world series or series game. These Include those who resent the tight of tho players of clubs that were possible entrants to con tlnue the game as long us possible, believing- that these athletes were Interested in the extra money nnd the extra tlmo of exemption, rather than In the sport Itself. There were other players who stuck to the finish who deserve credit, rather than censure. They enabled club owners to go to thi . finish, not to any gain but to lesser loss. From their clubs come moBt of the boys who have gone or who will go into one or other of the services. May Injure (same's Future. Hlght ' here is suggested possible Injurs to the sport from this series. So far as can be learned, a very large majority of tho men In it arc going Into shops, and were anxious to have the Crowder assurance ot exemption to September lf mainly thM they might dodge any danger ot neing lorcea into military service. That hurts. More damage than this wilt be done by tho action of tho lioston players In making no move to follow the commission's suggestion to give It) per cwpt: of their ttumey to war charities. ; That;Wilr"not offset Hie good that.; accrued from the action of Cobb; Speaker and other stars in gulntf into fighting branches.

S' nt only get BuchsharJ m may come from the receipts, but draw their regular aalarles. from FnlN Off More Than Half. As has betjn said before, the scries money will not be much, and its failure to come up' to' expectations may result in some attitude or action by the athletes,' before tho ganus are ended, that will further knock basobull's future. The tirst two days of 1017 ami of 1918 offer lor 'umiwison on the difference i attendance and in money, because In each case tho lirst two came vcro played on the Amorlcnn lenKue yard. In Chicago.

In tho guinea of the punt week tickets were offered for nlo at the park; and the rack wasn't near to being cleared. I-nst fall sales stopped when 32.0'jo fans had been accommodated. The money, of course, would drop anyway, on account of cut prices. Hut for these first two days the players' pool netted only wiwro 011 the 117 receipts basis It should tmve figured nt a little less than $40,000, even at this half rate scale. Athletes AliMt br Careful. ria.vcra in this fl(rles would do iMl 10 think tVlcH hoforn thxif grow too much about the money, and especially hefnre they make any move to compel the commission to bring the coin up to the sum that they had "Xpeuted. They won't get It. anyway, becmtise the actions of the athletes in the Immediate future do not concern thnno whose money ls Invested in baseball. Anything those players do will be remembered later, not enly by their employers of this year, but by those who have been supporters of tho gams nt tho gate. ' There will be a great deal of reconstruction work lie fore tho game comes hack. Unless tho war Is won within n year, fow of those in the game now will be back when Its piny is lesumcd. Salaries am go lug to be on a tower basts, rosters smaller, spring trips less elaborate, and the general expense account schemo revised. The boys who are playing In camps seem to do pretty well on hard work on the sido and no special training. At leant, almost any tlmo a pitcher has com back to hurl a game for his club ho has worked like a winner. Thla won't bo forgotten.
