Joy reigns in athletic circles Df the hill prep school. High School, 6; Shadyside, O. Yesterday for the first time in eight years the High School football team took first money from their old rivals, Shadyside Academy eleven. "Phil" Iewls, the veteran baseball and football player, was captain of the High School team -when the laat triumph was effected aver Shadyside. The team has worked hard each year, with the Shadyside game as the feature fixture, but success did not come until yesterday. It was no wonder that High School men and rooters gathered in a mass :tt the finish of the fray and, after giving Acting Captain Patterson a shoulder ride, took up Coach Thompson. They handed the bald-headed coach one of those hurry-un rides, following it up with a genuine mobbing. Thompson was a fit I subject for a Turkish bath after escap- ! ing from the joyous crowd. Oirls, boys, i full-grown me nand women, wearing High School colors, joined -in the outburst which followed the. close of the combat, with High School a winner by six to zero. High School won the battle on its merits. The team was outweighed in the line, but trick plays and end runs, to. gether with some magnificent punting by Gass, won the day for the High School outfit. Gass booted the ball for yard after ward, and thus kept it in the territory Of the opposition most of the time. The losers did not get within hailing distance of the winner's goal line. Now and then they fought hard and endeavored to make good the pleadings of their rooters, but the day belonged to Pittsburg High School. tirand weather prevailed for the combat, and Friendship Park has seldom entertained a larger crowd. Supporters of the competing institutions occupied different Uleachers and a rooting melee was one of the pleasing side-issues of the game. " The gridiron was rather soft, but then it might have been styled one of those fair fields with no favors. Shortly before the struggle started, betting, which had favored High School, shifted to even money because some of the High School regulars were unable to play. FIRST HALF. The game began with Blake kicking to the High School. Haggerty caught and pushed the oval forward some. Then Schmidt and aGss took turns in securing the shouts of High School rooters by plunges. Gass finally kicked, and the ball was landed by Van Gorder amid cheers by High School pluggers. Schmidt took the leather forward lji yards. Finally Gass booted down the field to Dickey. Blake and Morrison took turns in testing the High School defense with fair results. Blake finally gained a first down on the last try. Duff tried his luck and advanced a few yartU. Then Blake again cut loose, with ordinary luck. Blake a. moment later fumbled a high pass, and the ball went to High School. Smith and Haggerty did not do much. A punt was then blocked and Patterson, of Shadyside, grabbed the ball. Morrison tried to advance and did so for 3 yards. Shadyside reasoned that a punt was the proper thing after a play in which the. back was tackled; behind the line for a loss. Blake kicked and Carruthers stopped the High School man who wanted to bring the ball back. On a forward pasa the ball went out of bounds and Shadyside got it, Morrison took two chanees and Biake one without getting the required distance, and it was High School's ball. Failing to do much, the ball was banded to Gass, who sent it spinning far down the field. Shadyside sprit Duff fgainst the center, and lie gained, but the ball was brought back by the umpire lor nuraimg. ECKERSALL'S GREAT WORK Kicked Five Field Goals His Last Football Game in set. Shadyside gaine dthrough the center twice, but on the second assault against High School's line a penalty of 15 yards was put on for hurdling. Frankel was laid out in a scrimmage. Time was nearly up when he resumed play. Shadyside here essayer a quarterback run and went forward a short distance. The ball was punted finally. Hag-gerty grabbed It without much advance. Van Gorder hit up 15 pards around the end. Haggerty took a fall out of the same spot. With six yards to go for a first down Gass landed this sum and more, too. Gass, a few moments later, tried an onside kick and the ball was dead in Shadyside's possession not many yards from Shadyside's goal when the first half ended. ! Both teams received the usual talking to from their coaches in the intermission. When the teams lined up for the second half Sotton was playing in Stehre's place on the Shadyside flanks. SECOND HALF. . Gass hoofed the ball down the field and. Blake caught It. On the first bump Shadyside was offside and Duff's run was called back. Shadyside kicked to Watterson, who brought the ball back a few yards. Van Gorder then caused High School cheer by a plunge to the front. Schmidt circled Shadyside's left end for lo yards, but dropped the ball on being tacked hard and the oval belonged to Shadyside. Right here Miller was sent in for Burgwin. Dickey blazed the trail j by a quarterback run for about three j yards. Shadyside rushers were offside i and a penalty was put on. Shadyside kicked to the center of the field. Van Gorder was there to get the ball. Gass tackled the center, but without much result. Van Gorder pierced a flank for a couple of wards. High School punted, but the ball was called back md a penalty of 13 yards added for holding. Gass tried another punt, but again the ball waa called back and another penalty of 15 yards put on for holding. Frankel was said to be the offender. Gass kicked out of bounds and into the crowd, and the ball was given to Shadyside. Dickey gained 5 yards. Then Shadyside began to maneuver for an apparent trick play. The pass from the center was ragged. Dickey failed to grab the oval and Nei-man was holding onto the ball a second later. Haggerty and Schmidt hit the line for a few yards. Patterson got in and stopped Schmidt from getting dangerous. Gass made a short kick, but the ball was snatched by a High School rusher. On a fake kick, Watterson was tackled by Duff behind the line for little or no gain. Shadyside was working better now and their supporters joined in din-making. Gass finally made of his his favorite punts. Blake carried the ball back a few yards. Duff ran 12 yards around High School's left end. Nelman was the tackier. A delayed pass failed to work and then Shadyside essayed the forward pass. This yielded 9 yards. Duff took the ball ahead for .a yard: Dickey also kept up the good work, but finally a punt was needed. Van Gorder caught cn High School's 25-yard line. Van Gorder took a chance and made a few yards. Some DeoDle said that he had gained 5 yards, but it din't look that amount. Schmidt made it first down by a rush of 7 yards. Gass lost on the next play, and then punted closfeonto y- yards. Blake fumbled. Dickejv who yCvas close by him. fell on the hail . ap parently a tired player, for his efforts at picking up the rolling oval caused some High School players to ejaeulate "lie is all in." Shadyside took a couple of tries and gained about eight yards. . Crawford went in here for red-haired - Frsrikrl. Blake made Its first down tiir Siiadv-side. Watterson was in, .h4ilnl and pieented a largver gain by grabbing wis man uy one root as he was cut tine: loose for a eroal. Shd vnifl. id by Blake, gained chunks of two and Chicago, November 24 Chicago defeated Nebraska in a brilliant game of football this afternoon by a score of 38 to 5. The Chicagoans proved themselves beyond doubt the fastest players in the West and Eckersall's valedictory could not have been improved on. The Ne-braskans fought gamely to the end, however, forcing Chicago to its utmost speed for every inch of ground. The Corn Huskers' much-touted fake and trick plays did not figure extensively, but the ends kept their rivals constantly on the alert, as long, at least, as Johnson and Mason were in the game. Eekersall booted five dropkicks in seven trials. The crowd went wild over him, and carried him triumphantly from the gridiron. Between halves he was presented with a diamond-studded gold watch, the gift of his friends, fellow students and the university faculty. Chicago's first score was made on a 20-yard run by Iddings for a touchdown. Walker kicked goal. This score was soon doubled by two line bucks, which took the ball to Nebraska's three-yard line. Steffen was carried over for a touchdown and Walker again kicked goal. Some very brisk play ijpllowed, in which Nebraska fully held its own until Eekersall made a pretty kick from the Corn Huskers' 25-yard line, bringing the score up to 16 to 0. A few spinutes later Steffen made 20 yards on a forward pass from Eekersall. Finally the Maroon captain made another kick from Nebraska's IM-yard line and the score crept up to 20. At last Nebraska chalked up its lone five points. Eekersall tried a forward pass, but it went wrong and Nebraska got the ball on Chicago's 15-yard line. Little carried it lo yards, Craig went through center to the Maroon one-yard line and Little went over for a touchdown. Harvey missed goal. Eekersall soon afterward dropped from the 2-yard line and the half ended, 24 to 5 in Chicago's favor. Two more kicks by Eekersall, one from the 4o and one. from the 20-yard line in creased Chicago's score to 32 early in the second half. Then Steffen made a touchdown and Walker kicked goal. Walker thought he had scored a touchdown later, but was called back for off side playing. There was some stiff play ing during tne rest of the half, but no more scoring. Leo De Tray was elected captain of the Maroons at tonight's banquet of the play ers. He win be in condition to nlav next season. Lineup: Chicago Nebraska Walker 1.

Schmidt got clear of the Shadyside line for a 25-yard run. This started the High School men toward their score, for before TShadyside could pet over their surprise Gass took the ball and circled the same left end f jr about forty yards and a touchdown. Dickey tacKiea mm, out hooted the hall over the bars and the count was High School , tihadystdj a. Shadyside rooters right here declared "that the game was youn?. ' an 1 that their men would Foon tie up that count. Their guess failed to materialize, for with victory staring them in the face th? hill school band fought with a determination long to be remembered by the appy rooters. On the next kiekoff Martin t-nt the ball to Dunn, who got buck about ten vards before the. ball was "'down.' Kess-ter and Haggart whaled awav for seme small gains. The punt came on the third down, and Kessler tackled Dickey after the catch. Two plunges helped pome, but soon Shadyside kicked down the field. Watterson caught and was coming ahead until a pile of tacklers downed him. High School fumbled, but Neiman waa on the ball and for little loss. Gass drove the bail for S5 pards.

Gass right here pushed tne oau vsvitn his big toe for over 45 yards, and it rolled behind Shadyside's goal line, for a touchback. " Shadyside took tne bail on the 2-yard line, and punted down the field. Gass was tried by High School, and . iade nearly 15 yards. A couple more small scrim mages and the whfstle blew for the cessation of the fracas. Jubilant High School rooters ran on the field-and surrounded the frantic team, which was trying to give the school yell. Then came the shoulder riding and other demonstrations of delight on the part or trie winners and their followers. Lineup: Ilisrh School Shadyside 0 an Oorder ., I.. E Stehr. Dunn JL..

Season after season they had tried lo wrest football honors from the East Enders. but defeat had been their lot for eight long years. Shadyside had done the cheering for all that time, and the lads of the Red and Black last night resolved that they would not be outdone and would let the people of Pittsburg know how they felt over the victory. Bright looking school "boys crowded the streets, flaunting their colors in the faces of the crowds and cheering them-' selves hoarse. The old school songs were sung over and over again, andi each member of the team came in for lots of cheering. When the name of Gass, the star fullback, whose great punting and nervy run won the game, was mentioned, the crowd simply want wild and the noise was deafening. Coach "oje" Thompson was a happy Individual also, and it is hardly likely that any of the school boys were more elated over the victory than he. He had coached his team with one end In view, that of downing Shadyside, and his object had been accomplished. When Joe was spied by the cheering schoolboys last night on the street, he was cheered over and over again. Auto .Race Heanlts. Philadelphia. November 24.

Baseballdom being: pretty well satisfied that Charles Sylvester Stahl Is to handle the Boston Americans next season, guesses are in order-who will succeed "Jim'" Collins at third; base. It has been well remarked that the American League has but four Class A third basemen. It is remarkable there ehould be as many as four. The president of the American League tt remarked not so long ago that first-class players were never so scarce as they are at the present lime. It is a most difficult matter to secure fast men for any position. Perhaps Cleveland was not fortunate when it secured "Terry" Tru-ner, who is condered by many the best shortstop in the "untry. Time was when Fred Parent was considered to be the non plus ultra, but Freddy has gone back, undeniably. He does not field, he does not bat and he does not run bases as he did. George LaChance was a grand fielding first baseman, but as a batsman and a base runner he was practically nill. He was knocked from pillar to post until he came to Boston, and here he found the proper atmosphere. Championships were won with big George in the team, and some thought it a mistake when he was released. You have your adherents to the stand patter theory and you have your opponents of the same theory. The club is knocked because it does not secure new faces and If the new faces do not make good there is another holler. For a long time there has been a howl to secure some one to release LaChance, and when the club did not do better after he had gone there was more knocking. As a rule, it is impossible to satisfy the critics. Grlmshaw was In no shape to do justice to himself when he first joined the club, but last season he showed hitting qualities of a high order and there is no qeustjon he can hold his own in a crowd. When LaChance was with the club. Parent was playing a great all 'round game, and when the latter let up it made George's game look worse than ever. So the cry to strengthen a team if followed up may prove a very bad thing. It is sheer nonsense to say that it was owing to the fact that Boston stood pat that the team failed to land the pennant In 1904. as maintained by President Murphy, of the Chicago Nationals. Mr. Murphy may be conversant with the inside history of National League affairs, but he certainly has missed it in his criticism of the American League raco referred to. That year the Boston team was so badly crippled in the box. that it simply had no chance at all. The stand pat business had simply nothing to do with it at all. The Boston and Baltimore teams of the nineties, winners of about all the pennants won in a decade, were nothing If not stand pat teams. It was largely owing to the fact that the Chicago club of the National League met with so few reverses in the way of injuries to playera that it managed to land the pennant in its organization. Murphy also cites the New York Nationals as an example of the stand pat idea. That club was crippled last season as were few clubs in the country, yet came in second a splendid showing. all things considered. Mathewson was a very sick man for a ong time and certalny was not In his 11)04 form at any time during the season, Ames, who is one of the most effective pitchers in the country, was also out of the game a great deal. With these two pitchers in their usual form Chicago would not have had the walkover it had by a good deal. Then Donlin was out of the game -almost all of the season and the absence of the crack batsman of a club for bo long a period is almost sufficient to put a club out of a championship race entirely. Browne, also h valuable player, was out of the game for a considerable period. The Cleveland club of the American League has been thrown out of the American race several times owing1 to the crippling of the players. No matter how strong a team, a pennant cannot be landed unless it is fortunate enough to play at full strength during a season or nearly so. The White-sox would have found It a tiifficult matter indeed to land the pennant had Cleveland pot received so many setbacks and had not the Athletics been denied the services of the crack lefthander. Eddie Plank. Boston cut a sorry figure !n tht American League race owing to the fact that Manager Collins was out of the, game almost the entire season and Catcher Criger was crippled by illness. Mr. Murphy seems to think that a club can guard against all contingencies. Judging by the experience of the past few seasons more than one manager has found himself unable to do so. - It would be interesting indeed to see how Murphy would have talked had a couple of his best pitchers been denied him last season and Bchulte or Steinfeldt been out of the game owing to injury. The Chicago National Leaguers now have 27 men on the lists and may have some more. It will be most Interesting indeed to see how many changes they will make next season from the team there was in the field !r. Hiofi Pittsburg has had its .troubles for several seasons past. This is essentially a stand pat team. Three of its infield have been with the chib for years and it has had two outfielders Clarke and Beaumont who have played with the club season after season. in 1!.4 Pittsburg went Into the world's series with practically but one pitcher who could stand the gaff Phillippe and made a very game struggle for first honors. The Chicago White Sox had much t contend with in the matter of injuries to players the latter part of the season, and were compelled to work very hard to land their pennant to the very last week of the season. The Chicago Nationals had little to do the last six weeks of the campaign than to get ready for the battle between the two leaders and then came out second best. Now that It is generally recognized that "Chick" Stahl will handle the Boston Americans when on the field next season, expectation Is aroused as to the successor of Collins. There can be little doubt that a first-class man will be secured. It will not be at alj surprising if President Taylor already knows who the man will be.- It is conceded it will be no easy matter for .a player to undertake to play the game at the bat and In the field that Collins can put up. but the best players cannot last forever, and a change must be made some time, , and there is never any telling what may happen to bring that about. Manager "Connie" Mack was compelled to make a change by which "Lave" Cross went to Washington and he tried three men in his place and now expresses his confidence that young Knight, one of the trio, will fill the bill, but it is safe to say that player will never be a Cross. The National League is not even as strong as the American in first-class basemen who can hit as well as field, Devlin is in a class my himself in th F,ast. and in the West Steinfeldt. of the Chicagos and Leach of the Pittsburg; stand prominent. There has been u great deal of discussion about the opening of the playing season. Now that the foul strike is no longed discussed and all the clubs of the American League are resigned to it, attention Is paid tithe date of the opening of the season. As usual the National League prefers the early openinsr, Thursday. April 11. while the American League inclines to Sunday, the 14th, as the opening. It is safe to predict that Thursday, the 11th, will be the opening day in both organizations, find that the campaign will extend to Sunday, October (I. There is no reason at-all why the world's serie cannot be extended to nine games. The conditions In the opening games of the series this- year were about as bad as they could very well be and the last day was the best-4n lie whole campaign. A general interchange ot games between the clubs of the two major league would meet with little favor. The two flubs in Chicago. St. Louis and Philadelphia generally play together, but there is little interest here unless the clubs both stand high in their respective organizations. Again, if the plan were tried to have the clubs play together us they stunt the expenses would be out of nil proportion to the receipt in many cases, and such a play would cut out entirely the intercity games. Again. 1 lie weather conditions in the F.ast are liable to be extremely adverse, and in that case the patronage would not be at jtll alarming. The major league clubs are carrying so many players this year that there will be a great turning over of nviterlal to minor league organizations before the season opens. Enough playera will lie cast aside to form an entire league. Clubs urn compelled to secure a considerable array in the hope that a find will be secured, for the number that make good is generally very small. Often does it happen that a player is tried and turned back, only to get another chance later on, arid sometimes a man is twice sent back into niinor league company, and then ttiowi speed enough to secure a third trial. Changes galore were the order of th day at (he meetings of the majors last season, and while there may pot be made many changes in the meetings that will occur in Chicago and New York two weeks hence, there will be considerable doing from a standpoint in fnct, it is expected that more change will be made so far as the Boston clubs are concerned than in the case of the clubs of mv other city. The Americans have a fcm;ill company, with rtt men at their disposal, and there are many that can be spared without any trouble at all. Manager Tenncy expects to turn n trick or two that v. 1 1 1 help his team, and there is no doubt ot all that the new dispensation will be in a position to secure some players that will help the local materially. The club is to he strengthened in h pitching and a batting way, and If that is (tone a far belter showing run be made than was done last season, for had the club of 190t been us well equipped for emergencies as were other clubs, it would have made a better showing by considerable and doubtlesn would linve shown pea enough to close at the top of the sefnnd division. Manager Tenney is to he backed in every possible way this coining season, and is confident he will make n good showing. n .,L a . f" mk fcar m mm w fiKiKa . m 1 ivi n iSsk 11 tmmw 9 rwm o "BILL" HCLLENBACH. Whess many Jong runs and splendid punting played a bis part in the Quakers' victory over Michigan. -, ' , The Lyceum team played great football yesterday in the game with Niagara University, defeating them by the score of 6 to 5 In a hair-raising contest. The first half was closely contested, the ball being carried up and down the field, neither side being able to seore. Lyceum got the ball :to Niagara's 15-yard line in the early part of the half only a fumble it and on another occasion they took it to the 25-yard line, where it was again lost on a fumble. Near the close of this half. Doyle, Niagara's quarterback, tried for a goal from placement, but failed. The first half ended with the ball in' Lyceum's possession on their own 23-yard line. Niagara scored early in the second half on a beautifully executed forward pass by Doyle and Lowney, the latter running 60 yards for a touchdown. With three minutes to play, Brassell took the pall -- over the line, tieing the score, and rrlesell's mighty foot won the same when he kicked goal. Line up: Lyceum Niagara. McMahon ......... ..L. E.
