NASHVILLE TENNESSEAN and The Nashville American, SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 15, 1912 Football Starts Here Tomorrow News and Comment on Gridiron COMMODORES FACE SCHEDULE FOR By SPICK HALL. "But yesterday the wort baseball would have stod ngalnst the world; now "on it there and none bo ,oov to do It reverence. ' It wni cvor thin Frn.H the aaya when Mure Antony Is allied to have pulled off the abovr remutltH recording his old pul, j. Cnesnr, until the present date "has-beens'' have been rclc-nted to the cellar, nil! Schwartz led bin oiunteern from Sulphur Pel yeatordav afternoon and loenl bnnchaU died until the season of 1513. Tomorrow Dnn M:Gu-mn et al. will begin to oertipv the spot-llpht, The forthcoming football senson promises to be one of unsurp;i!!S''d Interest for wvewil reasons. In the first place, the underbill football teum has Wn overhauled, remodeled and redrliled for the hp battles of the year; then. too. the hardest schedule in their history will be faced by the Commodores: third and lastly, the new rules which have been promulgated by the commltteo promise -i invat amount of interest. thoiiRh the ode may or may not prove to be c-rnml to the demands of players and spectators. In order to whip a team into shape by Sept. 28 nnd to keep snid team on edpo fnr a long line of KrliollinA; contests will Five Dan McOugin and his nhle assistant, Dr. Owslnv Miller, a rouplr of fine ynunj? Jobs. That Han' will he able to turn the trick Is believed by every one v.ho follows the prime here. The south's greatest football wiznrd has never failed to meet the exigencies of tlie occawlnn in a hecomlnff manner, and he won't fntt this time. I-'rom the present outlonV- It seems that the most urgent need of the Commodores this season Is a quarterbnelc. Whether i. Hi' of the men now on the roster will be ahle to put up the nccesrary fUht nnd win the position Is a matter upon which McGURln is reticent. He neither Pfilth yea or nny to the proposition. There are rlsht now three men who will Kivo ft fourth .man a llvelv hustle fnr quarterback and who will put up a ureat fcrnp' among themselves. The trio Is fnck Curlin, Ttahbi Robins and Horde Boensch. Just who and why these men are may he summed up this way: Curlin was a substitute on the Vander-bllt eleven last year, when he won a big chunk of fame hv being slipped Into the Michigan game and hootln.T a drop kick, between the bars before the Wolverines realized what McGugln was up vtn. In 1he succeeding games Curlin repeated the drop dose on several extremely nuspl- Hons occasions. Tie Is a fast man. having been also on the track team last spring, runs well hehlnd interference and In a broken field. His defensive work is ppr at lenst. Robins wns nlso n substitute on the varsity e'even last fall and the full preceding. He Is heavier-made than Curlin, about as fust In football togs. Is a fair punter nnd has had considerable experl-rnce on the gridiron. He ha plaved halfback more than any other position', runs hard and was considered a consistent seeond string ground-gainer Inst season. Rnensch Is a-secourt year mnn, with experience derived only from one year's subbing. As last vear was Ray Morrison's last he played as much as possible, which gave Boon sob little chance tn show in the games. Reensch, Is very fast In his footbRll uniform, runs like n streak In the broken field nnd tackles well. He needs' experience more than anything; else. Xow, If one of these men proves to be n comer of the proper caliber McGugln win have no trouble In bolstering tin his team. Two of these three men will he able reserve rind thin wIM heln wonderfully with the hard schedule ahead. MAIN CHANGES IN F OOTBALL RULES.

Tho squad haa Increased, and there are about J for, . . iflv k,avH ?i CapL Major, Auburn. sixty men out now, and there will bo few more to come out before the boys got to dropping off. Assistant Coach Pray was on the field, to help' Coach Donahue, and proved himself to bo a man of ability, Instructing tho new men In tho art of . handling themselves and tho pigskin. Tho first two evenings wore given over to light practicing and assorting the men. The old varsity mon on tho field ready for business aro: Newell, Majors, Thln- 6 en, Arnotd, Loulsull, Cogswell. Makin. lobortson, Pitts, Wlngo and Hart. Other old men -who are expected to return soon are Kearley, Ressljac, Lamb and Meadors. Their return Is looked forward to with much interest, as that will be the slgnnl for the hard grinding practice to begin. The absence of John Davis.

NEW YORK BDUTS AflE ALL RIGHT So Declares Harburger, the Sheriff, in a Short Interview on the Subject. NEW YOItK, Sept. 14. The official seal of approval has been placed upon tho sport of boxing as conducted In New York city, by Sheriff Julius Harburger. who recently had some correspondence with Governor DIx regarding suppression of the proposed Wolgast-McFarland fight. Sheriff Harburger attended the Attcll-Thomas fight In Madison Square Garden last night and afterwards made this statement: "Before tho boxing began I made a formal statement to tho referee. I said that if -the affair developed into a brutal prize light 1 would stop it myself, arrest the principals and arrest the referee. I think from my observation of what happened that the affair was conducted in an orderly manner in strict accordance with the provisions of the law. "The bout, to be explicit, wns, in my opinion, u pure and simple boxing exhibition and Instead of being a brutal affair, it was a conrest that might bo conducted In any respectable household or In any reputable Institution devoted to this branch of sport. If boxing Is to be conducted under the law on this plane it will bo conducive to the development of athletics and at tho same lime uphold the manhood of the American people. I propose to visit every boxing exhibition under my Jurisdiction as sheriff of New York, county, and will exercise my authority in uch a manner that brutality cannot and will not occur." year, and among the most promising of the scrubs who returned are Hallmark, Harris, Culpepper, Elliot, "Little Rip" Majors, Christopher, Bedez, Faucutt, Noble and Burkes. There are several new prop school men with us this year who have made reputations as promising stars. Spark man from Tampa, Fla. ; Davidson from Gordon Military Institute and Franklin from Spring Hill College have made tho best showing of any of tho new men. A.s to the positions the mon on the field will play has yet to bo decided, although practice is well under way, there has been no scrimmages. The men are being tried In different positions, but they will probably be played as follows: Majors, Newell, I.ouUell, Harris, Wlngo, Noble, DespreK, Cook, Christopher, Sparkman, Elliott Williams and Burkes are trying for backfleld positions. Louisell and Majors nre both renowned for their punting abilities: Newell and Wlngo are fast, both playing quarterback; Harris, Noble, Cook and Sparkman nre all fast runners, and they will probablv play half. Kub-ertson, Kearley. Arnold, Makin and ".Little Rip" nre out for ends. Robertson played his first game last year, and proved to be a star player, fast and a sure tackier. Arnold, Kearley, Makin and Majors are all fast men and good players so that there will bo trouble in deciding who is the best man for the position. Auburn hns some good men for tho line In Kssllnger, Holllnsworth. Pickett. Culpepper, Plus, Lindsey. Young, Thlgpiui. Smith and several others, all look promising. The schedule for this year Is much better than that of last, for this year's schedule is given over entirely to plaj lng Southern colleges.-Thcre nre no long trips and the over-exertion from long traveling will noe he-had to deal with. There are several games that are going to be hard-fought battles. On October -6 the Auburn boys clash with the boys from Mississippi, nnd no doubt this will be a very good game, as Mississippi usually has a good team. Another game om Importance Is with Ij. S. U. In Mobile, as Auburn remembers the Inst time that I. S. U. invaded their territory and beat them. The game thoj will attract the most attention In the south this season is Auburn and Vanderbilt In Birmingham on November 3. It has been three years ;dnco Auburn and Vanderbilt met last, ami Auburn owes Vnndy a little return favor for tho reception ihey received In Nashville. Although Auburn had a good team last year there was a great deal of sickness and injuries. It is to bo hoped that thev will not experience any of tho.:' lack this year. 308 THIRD AVE., NORTH NORTH SOUTH WE WANT HOUSES SEE OUR LISTS EAST WEST FHOHE H. 2002 THE mm TRUST CO. WHO WILL BE THE "SAM WHITE" ON THE GRIDIRON THIS FALL? nv Phillip P.RVCE. Who will be llK' S:uu White nf tho !312 football jH'nson? S.tnforcl II. While won lh,. footlmll championship for Princeton last yenr, find for himself ho Rained recognition ns tho most !ii!U:nil athlete In the annals of Amorlcun eotleslalo spirt. Ills Individual work won both the Vale nnd Harvard football immps of lull. Many experts sav that Ibis vear's new rules will obllvl'ate this Individual starring: that the team whose players are of tho Kreaiest average sirenctn will do tne winning. . .Vow. It Is only the truth. thai llieso experts know very little about what foot, bull Is itoliiR to ho like this year, mder tho new rules ways mil V be discovered to revolutionize the Rrldlron Kame. These experts no doubt reason thoiiKlitfully In iloplne; out the end of Individual prominence, but still It Is tile writer's humble opinion that more than one of the Important (tallies of 1112 will he one-innn victories, and that next ThaiiksuhinK will see a new colleKlnn 'crowned the hero of footballdnm. It was Sam White last vear nnd Ted Coy the year before, nnd It will be someone else this year. There's n new one every vear. I-'ven when the hero of ono season lias another vear In the itiiine, he doesn't repeal. The most Important ohanito that will be brought about by the new rules Is the allowance of four downs Instead of three In which to advance the ball ten vnrds. This, It is widely claimed, puts a decided advantage on the old-time frame the klll-the-tnckle mass plays-plvlnK a decided ndvantaco to the heavy teams that are best at straight football, rills arKues that the 1!12 star will be another catapultlns llne-pliinBcr of the Ted Coy type. A little thousht, however will make It clear to tho student or the came that the husky fullback Is tint the lOKlenl candidate. A comparatively Unlit man Is more likely to be the owner of the face favored for display on the- November sport pautw. He will probably he a lithe, shitty splinter, with Brent ability In dodclm; and shakinB oft tnck-lers and a particular knack of catchlnB the forward pnss and getting away Willi It fast The reason for this lies In the fact that the forward pass will reach lta Bieatest development this year. TIiIh Is the play that Is Koins to make the hlBli scores, and that is boIiik t win Bamea. And it la the star performer in thla play who will be the star of the 1011 season. The four-down rule, coupled with the new rule which allows the attacking side to malio forward passes of unlimited leiiKth even ncross the Bonl, opens up unlimited possibilities tor the forward pass. An the rule protecting the receiver of the forward pass Is still In force, the ofrense Is given vnst liberty In the use of this play. The right of the offense to make forward passes over tho goal line will mnkc it necessary for tho defense to keep Its second line back instead of massing for the strength on the line In the mnnner that caused so many failures to score last year after the offense had carried tho ball down to tho ten-yard line. , ,' lt , Princeton won't have Ram White tills year, but she may have ills successor. Walter Camp once said, "for brilllnncy of achievement no teams have produced so many stars hb those of Princeton. Princeton has had men like ..icMann. McN'nir, Moffat, Lamar.

ROSTONI Famous Shoes for Men. STYLES THAT SPARK are strongly represented in every grade of BOSTONIANS that we carry. And there is good reason for it. Built of the best materials by workmen of superior skill and supervised at every step of the process by men who know how to create the game, and It has had a Poo, who alone defeated Yale two years tn lUcceSBlon, but never before White's time haa Princeton or anv other eollejxe had a man who by individual achievement won two baseball games from Yale nnd a football game from both Yale and Harvard. White's fame lias not been forgotton . with his graduation. His achievements seem all the more marvelous in retrospect. In Ml! he won Prlncoton'a tnlrt and deciding baseball game with Tale, with the score a blank White reached second base. Slnrrett. who in now with the N'ew York Yankees, drove a short hit Into right Held which Corey gathered up on the run nnd swiftly whipped to Menitt nt third to catch White. White, according to rule, should have slid to the bnse. Instead, he kept his feet nnd taking a daring chanco iQUnded the bag and leaped for the plate. Tho bnll seemed to strike Merrltt's glove simultaneously with White's foot on the bag. Something, perhaps White's audacity, roused Merrltt momentarily to Jugglo the ball, and in thai moment White slid across the plate with the winning run. Last autumn In the Prlneeton-Harvnrd knnio nnnlap, Princeton's loft end. knocked the hall from the hands or Holllster of Harvard, who was about to trv a drop-kick. Almost before the hall touched the ground the ever alert Whlto had seized It and was off for the goal. "I yards away. In a race In1 which ho d'stanced his pursuers nnd scored a touchdown. Scarcely had the second half opened when Gardner of Harvard rashly decided to scoop up a bounding ''nil on his one-yard line liistend of falling on It nnd Instantly be was swept 'cm- the qonl line In tn' strong, arms of. White for n safety and tho deciding score of the game. Two weeks later Yale. ,m tho lrst ton minutes of nlny. wns driving Princeton to the gnnl line with a bewildering shift play. Suddenly, on n pass from center, Ihe' hall struck the ground at the s'do of Dunn, fullback for Yale. Snm White, dashing In from end. picked up the ball from the ground as lie would n naseoan. Instantlv lie wns In full stride for Tales gonl, eighty vardB away, which hn crossed carrying with him Arthur Howe, the Yale captain, who had tackled him on the llve-vard line. And thus came a football champlonshin to Princeton. Last .Tune nt Princeton. Yalo led tho Tigers hv one run on the diamond. Princeton was at hat with one. man out nnd tho liasea full. It was Sam WhltOt who came to the plate In the crisis. Coolley he let three balls go by, ono of them a strike, and then mot tho fourth squarely with his bat and drove It. far oyer left fielder's head, scoring threo men and winning tho game. nut tho reliability of this man Is not confined to sports. At Princeton last autumn Prof. J. Duncan Snnoth of tho English department, the day before tho football game with Yale, asalgned to his senior class In Engllh n theme which each man was to v.'rite and present tho following Tuesday morning.
