Allen Hall, St. Louis boy, had been named as an "alternate" to play in the event any one of the four acknowledged leaders declined to compete. Johnny Layto.n of St. Louis holds the three-cushion championship which lie won last sprint,-. In spite of the fact that he has lost much of the cool self assur- ance which distinguished his play of pome years ago, Hoppe is still considered by many thvs greatest billiard player of the age and it is anticipated that be will prohihly dethrone Layton. In a long series of exhibition matches played since Layton won the, title, Hoppe has been a consistent winner. In the pock tournament, Greer.leaf stands out as tho logical choice to retain his title. "t is only when the youngster fails to adhere to the rules of training and practice that he slips so far as to permit any of his challengers to approach his game. When he is at the top of his form he is by ar the best. On this occasion he will lie opposed by Prank Taberskl, Ervin Rudolph and Tasquale Natalie. Plans Loral Tourneys.

He pointed out that Conzelman had continued his daily coaching of the team, even when he was forced to use crutches to get out to the field. Other players declared that Can-zelman's inspirational leader-ship had kcot them on the friendliest terms with one another and that the unselfish spirit he developed among them had no small part in the winning of the championship. It was said that during the entire see son not a cross word passed between any two Roller players, either on or off the field. "Never have I played on a team, either in or out of college," remarked "Wildcat" Wilson, AI1- i American haiibacK or tne squac, "that has shown the spirit, the de- sire to win and the friendship for I one another, i - that the Roller has.

A, ' 'Wildcat" Wilson, Former Coast Star, Praises Jim, Who Directed Practice While on Crutches. Neither college or high school football has given me half as much enjoyment as playing under Jim- mie Conzelman." Conzelman has been coaching and playing professional football for nine years and his teams have almost always finished near the top. It took him only two seasons to make a championship club out Sit the Roller. The present season probably ended his playing career, however, as he twisted his knee o severely in the Roller-Yankees game at New York, Oct. 21 that lie has been crippled ever since. Ilisi bg has been in a plaster cast for I weeks. Twisted Knee in Open I'khl. J It is an irony of fate that al- though Conzelman had withstood jthe buffe'Jngs of the strongest pro and college teams in the country I for many years without serious in- i jury, lie was finally hurt without even being hit by an opponent. Jimmie had received a forward pass from "Wildcat" Wilson while standing all alone near the Yankees' goal line, but turned so suddenly that he twisted the ligaments of his knee, collapsed and was unable to cross the chalkniark a few-feet away. Passes from Wilson to Conzelman had accounted for nearly all the Roller early stason victories. This was the best passing combination on the circuit last year as well as this fall. In addition to showing uncanny skill at snaring the forwards, Conzleman frequently ran enemy punts back for long gains through his clever side-step ping ability. While at "Washing- ; ton University in 1919, Conzelman! was picked as "All-Missouri Valley ! quarterback." Last year "Dyna- j mite" Gus Sonnenberg of Detroit ! won the most valuable player con- , test of the Roller bv popular vote. ! r LEARN TO BOWL AT !

Berger, a member of the St. Louis Olympic squad last spring, started this season with the Kolsters but was recently released. Schmitt had a brief trial with the Angelica team early this Beason. Berger is an inside right and Schmitt an outside right. The Olympic squad coaches considered them two of the best amateur players in the city. May I'orm Right Wing. It is probable that the pair will compose the Schulze right wing. If this change is made, Manager Ed (lamewell will shift Hartwig from inside right to inside left. Sullivan will continue in center with Barnes at outside left. It is possible that Berger will not be eligible to play for the Schulzes today he-cause a sufficient time has not elapsed since his release by the Holster.-;. At Sherman Park, the leader. Kolsters and Finans, will meet In the second game of the double-header which brings the Y. M. H. A. and Squadron teams together in the first half. The Kolsters are a much improved club and while it is granted the Finans have the smoothest working forward line, there is no doubt the league leaders may be taken for a fall.
