The real reason for the decision of Ban Johnson to call the American league magnates to-pether in New York at the same time the National league mogruls are holding forth next month became apparent today when it became known that the big- leaguers are beginning: to lay plans tor a bitter fiKht with the Baseball Players Fraternity. . Recent demands and ultimatums is-sued by Dave Fultz, who heads the ball players are of such a nature, magnates declare. that it is impossible to meet them. Fultz has declared he will not pass them up. Hence, the fight is on. The magnates Ray the players must submit to conditions which will be virtually at the same point as before the Federal league kicked up so much fuss. AMHERST ASKS LESLIE MANN TO BECOME GO ACH Chicago. Nov. I. If Socrates were nlive today Leslie Mann, star Cub outfielder, probably would appeal to his profound wisdom for a bit of advice concerning a problem that has been disturbing- him for several months. Ha is on-a- fence whether to remain in baseball or to take up college training. He cannot come to a decision. He has sought advice and still does not kno v what to do. Amherst college- is hot on his tracks year Instead of only in the winter months, as he has been doing- for several years, hut he cannot make up hi3 mind what course to pursue. Mann pays he is only 23 years old and as he thinks he has many more years of 'flood baseball in him would like to stick. At the same time he does not like to toss up a position with Amherst. Coaching in athletics is his profession aside from baseball and he Intends to follow it after he retires from the frame. , Amherst has offered him a three-year contract at a princely salary, now that it is known his pcrreement with the Cubs has expired. Mann does not know vhat he will be offered by President vjg-hman and is not sure whether ne tvVrf receive a cut in the stipend he obtained when he leaped from the Federal league. However, he is not worrying about it, for if the offer is not satisfactory he can forpet baseball and KO to coachlnsr. Yet he does not expect a bigr slice in salary, because he was one of the best players on the club and had an excellent year. Mann always plays the game to win and hustles every minute he Is on the field. Mann was graduated from the Y. M. C A. training school in Springfield, Mass., the same institution from which A. A. Stagg, of the University of Chicago was graduated. He was one of the best football players the training school ever had and is well remembered in the east. He also was a star basketball player and last year at Amherst had a championship five. SOCCER FOOTBALL.

Monterey held two practice sessions during the week, and Coach Blair introduced several new formations that will be used tomorrow. Monterey has shown enough class in its practice to give reasons for expecting a victory tomorrow. Hastings and Morrow Rest While Mates Battle With Plaid Warriors -- Rooting Duel a Feature With two of their classiest regulars on the sidelines because of injuries, the Pitt Panthers went into the game with the sturdy Carnegie Tech eUven at P'orbes Field this afternoon for the championship of the city of Pittsburg. "Andy' Hastings and "Jim" .Morrow are the Pitt . regulars who were not expected to be used by . Coach Warner today. Both are out of condition temporarily because of hurts sustained in the earlier battles, and the coaches decided to take no chances on having-them permanently injured, or so badly used Up as to be unable to participate in the final contest of the season on Thanksgiving day with Penn State. While Hastings and Morrow are always sadly missed when out of the lineup, their places are being filled by men of wonderful ability. Oougler was slated to play left half and Miller quarterback. Gougler played through the W. & J. contest, and did splendid work in every department. He is too classy n athlete to be ranked as a second t ring player, but has been unfortunate in that he was trying for the same position that Hastings fills. Outside of the two positions named, Pitt lined up with the same team that faced the Red and Black last week.- Captain Peck is at center, Sutherland and Sies at guards. Thorn-hill and Seidel at tackles, and Carlson and Herron at the ends, with DeHart at right half and McLaren at , fullback. - - . The Tech team was intact for the game. Every one of Coach Steffen's regulars was in fine trim for the big clash, and every man was imbued with a steadfast determination to hand the Panthers an unpleasant surprise. ' t Tech has been pointing for this big game throughout its entire season. Nothing t ould boost the record of the Scbenley park institution quite so much as a victory over Warner's scoring machine, and Steffen has been trying hard to1 make his men believe that, by the hardest kind of work today, they have a chance to triumph. TECH EAGER TO DO WELL. The indications were that the game would be bard fought. It was certain that the Techites would labor manfully, but it was a question whether they would be able to make the Pittites ex tend themselves to win. Followers of the Warnerites were inclined to regard the game as one of the easy spots on the Pitt schedule, and figured that Captain Peck's lads would win by just about as large a score as they cared to negotiate. This may be a mis-taken-idea the game itself ' will tell the tale. The rooting duel between the rival factions was -expected to prove a big feature of the afternoon. There have been intimations from Tech that they figured the Pitt students lacking in spirit, and hints that they figured the Schenley park crowd would outroot and outcheer the Panther admirers today. This sort of talk was not at ill pleasing to the Blue and Gold adherents, and all signs pointed to a real noise-making duel today. Before the big game the Pitt freshmen were scheduled to lineup against the Thiel college eleven of Greenville. Tech played Thiel earlier in the season, and there was considerable interest among the fans in watching the work of the Blue and Gold yearlings against the Greenville outfit. Between the two games, the P. A. A. crosscountry run was scheduled. This is a Western Pennsylvania championship event, with entrants from Pitt. Tech, Westminster, P. A. A. and a number of other . schools and clubs. The course was through Schenley park, and most of it in full view of the crowd at Forbes Feld. Following is the lineup for the Pitt- Tech game: Pitt Tech. Gibson ...... McFeaters -Kelly (capt.) Hellxtrom Fletrher . . ,' Grady Wright .......... Kesner Marshall Finley Altdoerfer -rlL ' . . L.

A. tonight when the crack amateur fighting machine from Philadelphia mixes it with the local ring gladiators. The Pittsburg team will be the best outfit that - Commissioner Taylor has mustered this year. Its fighting strength will be much greater than that whicn was used against the New Tork crowd last month. The local A. A. U. in collecting the lineup that it will launch against the invaders from the east, always had in mind the fact that the Quakers will be here in their greatest strength and that the "Winged Head" will have to be represented by the very strongest talent to maintain the prestige that it has won at such strenuous effort. The Quakers arrived this morning in charge of George Decker, the University of Pennsylvania boxing Instructor and trainer, and - Frank Schrenk, the Philadelphia sportsman who gathered together the bunch that will wear Philly colors. Three rounds will constitute each bout with additional rounds if the milling is too close for the judges to pick the winner. The men will pair off as follows: 10S pounds. Thomas McGann, Philadelphia, vs. Marty Grover, P.A. A.: 113 iounds, Andy Lewi?, Philadelphia, vs. Louis Fontana, P. A- A.; 125 pounds. Cliff Bent, Philadelphia, vs. Arnold Thornberg.

Rl Egg Forty Thousand Fans Will Witness Annual Game Between Princeton and Yale Dope Favors Nassau ; By H. C. Hamilton. United Press Staff Correspondent. New York. Nov. 13. The Tale Bulldog stands a fine chance of losing an ear this, afternon-at Princeton; also, the Princeton Tiger is still wondering what kind of a guard' he is going to use to keep the aforesaid Bulldog from matching the Harvard knot in his tail with one of the New Haven brand. If all depends upon the chewing or tail-knotting . abilities of the football teams which represent Tale and Princeton. The bout today will be the forty-first meeting 'between the two rivals. Of the two-score contests which have been ground into history, the New Haven contingent has won its full share and has lapped over a bit- The Tiger has had some mighty hard luck or poor football teams. 1 Strictly from a. dope standpoint Prince-tori is favored to win. i The Tigers are better conditioned, have had the easier schedule and have the best team since the days when Sam White used to nick up footballs and humiliate Tale and Harvard with a sprint over the chalk lines. : . ' ; But it Is impossible to convince a Princeton student that a jinx makes an annual trip Just to be present at the ba ttle - between Harvard- and Princeton, and they believe nothing but supernatural luck will stop a Tale victory. A crowd of upwards or w.uuu is expected in Palmer stadium. Weather' conditions were excellent. - Tale has a backfi eld which sticks out all over the place when compared with Princeton's. No men like Legore grace the Orange and Black training table. Neither are there any quarterbacks with the ability of Smith at Old Nassau. The forwards are of about the same caliber, with Tale probably having the edge in defense against rush attacks. The Eli line, however, has been proven bad when pitted against good forward passing and if "Speedy" Rush has been able to -hammer that kind of football into the heads of his.. warlords then Yale faces a big task, j The kicking of Priggs and Tibbott! probably will play an important part i in Princeton's game. Driggs. single-! handed, can keep the ball in Yale ter- ' ritory if the Tiger line can stop the" Blue chargers. Legore has steadily Improved as a kicker, but it's hardly probable that his boots will approach the long spirals that leave the toe of "Speedy" Rush's star. So. If Driggs can boot near enough to the Tale goal, it is an even chance that Dave Tibbott will be equal-to the task of kick- j ing a field goal or so. ' 4 When .two of the Big Three teams I start at each other's throats the gen-j eral . opinion in the east is that all other football might just "as well not be played. But at Cambridge today Percy Haughton sends his charges against Brown, the eleven which humbled Tale a week ago,-and a game of considerable proportions is promised. CHARLEROI FANS LIKE DE SANDERS - . CharleroS. Nov. 18. About a hundred fight fans from this city, and perhaps! two-score more from other points in the Monongahela valley will go to i Pittsburg tonight to see Dick De-, Sanders who is a great local favorite, ' in action against Johnny -Ray. De- Sanders is billed for a 10-round bout ( with Barney McGuire, of Johnstown,' here Monday night, and the confident i courage of their favorite in signing toj meet the two cleverest men in Western Pennsylvania within 48 hours, is arousing- the admiration of the fans. The local contingent will support him through his Pittsburg fight and then turn out en masse to see him against McGuire here Monday over the longer route. . ' - - It is significant' that the local fol- lowers of the game expect DeSanders to come through twsdoufole- test with flying colors. They've a great deal of confidence in his strength, stamina and hitting powers, and believe that Dick, in spite of his lack cf cleverness, will defeat both opponents, and possibly slip over a knock-oat punch on one or both. mm PENN HOPES TO M OVER YOST'S TEAM Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. IS. With "but a single victory to their credit in the annual Michigan,-Penn battles, since 1008, the Quaker squad came to Ann Arbor today for revenge. ' Coach Folwell violated all coaching ethics when he stated publicly this morning that there wasn't a cripple on his squad, that his full strength would be sent against the Wolverines, and that Pennsy expected to carry much bacon back to Philadelphia. Penn rooters "sacked up Folwell's opinion with gold. The easterners demanded even money and few Ann Arborltes seemed anxious to accept such terms. For that reason betting was light. - ' The open play is expected to feature the game. Both teams rely largely upon the forward pass to advance the ball- - - ' - Penn will give the Wolverines several pounds per man in the matter of average heft. The Wolverine battle front tips the beam for an average of nearly 183 pounds, while the Quaker average is slightly more than 175. College Riflemen to Compete. Rifle teams , representing Harvard, Tale, Princeton. Dartmouth and Cornell will compete for the Intercollegiate title at New Haven, Nov. 23. Tale is the present champion.

RED AND BLACK TEAM WEAKENED FOR GAME TODAY Richmond, Va Nov. 18. W. & J. Is all primed and ready for its game with Washington & Lee here this afternoon. Coach Metzger will present a team considerably different from that - which faced Pitt a week ago. He will start Crawford and Ruble at halfback, with Gurley in . reserve-in case Ruble's bad leg bothers him. In the W. & J.' line, there will be a radical change. Carrell and Tressel will be at ends, and Henry will start at left tackle. Capt. Wimberly will remain at left guard, but Shields will replace Guy at center.-: Drew will be moved from right tackle to left tackle, and Loucks will play right tackle. The -Washington - & Lee team is a strong favorite here, and ; is counting on defeating the Red and Black decisively. Realizing - that they are the underdogs, Metzger's men are prepared to fight desperately to upset the dope, and all. indications pointed to one of the ha'rdest fought games of the season. A big-crowd is anticipated. The lineup: . . . W. & J. '. fc L. . Larkin Johnson . Bryan Pierrotti .. Moore . Ignico . -Bethel Bagley . Young ... Crile . Sorrels barrel! . . , Henry ....

DICK DE SANDERS AND JOHNNY RAY BATTLE TONIGHT A fight that Pittsburg fans have been looking forward to for some time will come off tonight, -when Dick DeSanders. the Bloomfield slugger, clashes with AMERICANS WHISKEY DM IF TOP Ot THE MODfJIhi TOR OF THEM ALL Brernan ft Osgood, Pittsburg Agents 112 Fullerton St. FINEST 1 m aann. I !SIH9 Orant ISISS Main PHOSES . PITT VERSUS CARNEGIE TECH. ' HERE IS considerable difference of opinion hereabouts as to the outcome of the city championship clash today between the Pitt Panthers and the Tech Plaid. Students of the Schenley park institution and followers of the Techitc i-eem T to be of the opinion that Steffen's men are underrated, and that they are sure to give the Panthers an unpleasant surprise. OX THK OTHER hand. Pitt students and followers do not reaard today's game ns much of a genuine (tut for Warner's machine. Ia fact, they are of the opinion that the size of the score Will depend larjcely upon Jost how big Capt. Peck's men want to make it, despite the fact that the Pittite may play nlnat the sVrvleea of two of their beat men Hastings and Morrow. TECH HAS every incentive to do her best. This is her last game of th year, and a victory over Pitt or a small sized score would be the best boost tn Plaid could have. Pitt must save her men for the bard finale with Penn State. Warner is not likely to take anyvchances on having his stars injured, anil H remains to be seen whether he will give orders for' the lads to tear in at their best clip, and roll up as many points as possible. Yale Has a Big Chance. IN THE BIGGEST game in the east today, Yale has a wonder- ful chance for glory. If the Elis can defeat Princeton, they will go into the Harvard game next week, much more confident" than will be the case if they fall victims of the Tiger. YAU3 HAS A fighting team, which possesses some re til ability. Old KM has always been a hard nut for .Nassau to crack, even when Princeton seemed to have the better eleven. HushV men are favored to win today, but It Is entirely within the ranee of possibilities that 1 ale will hand out a surprise, sail take heme the bacon. . . What's in a Name? PAUL REVERE is a halfback on the St. Mark' school eleven. He comes frpm Boston, too. He ought to be able tukeep his teammates awake, at any rate. Tener and Herrmann. THE PRESIDENT of the National league says he cannot sec any need for a change in the chairmanship of the National Commis- sion. He is for the retention of August Herrmann. He thinks Garry is absolutely honest, and entirely capable of filling his present position. BIT MR. TEXER would have to vote against Herrmann if he were so n-strncted by the clubownera of the leattne. Tener has no say as to who shall he the third member of the Commission, only alter neing auiy instructed. noise wlio are oppeslaar Herrmann's reteatloa are not 'worried about what lr. Tener tl.lnkn of Carry's, cjaallflcntluno. They are more concerned with setting: enough votes among; the clubownera to force Trnrr to vote against Herrmann. - Fultz Didn't Reply. ' IT DEVELOPS that one reason why the minor leaguers tabled the demands of the Ball Players Fraternity was because of the failure of Dave Fultz to reply to a letter sent him by John H. Farrell, secretary of the National Association, some time ago. As soon as the minor body received the players' demands, Farrell wrote to Fultz, asking him to come forward with certain explanations. He asked him to name a single player who had ever been suspended while disabled. -He asked him to produce a single minor league contract that contained the alleged clause to which the players objected. 1TI.TJ IS said to have ignored thts letter, and the minor magnates thea dr.' cided to ignore Mr. Fultx. Sir. I-'jrrell says his colleagues are perfectly willing to treat fairly with their employes, as they have been dolag, but they do not propose to allow Dave Fultz to get a lot of publicity by making demands which have already been granted. Johnny Ray, the clever Hill district featherweight. The bout brings together two boys who can hit; Both lads carry a wallop in either mitt, and the possibility of the. battle terminating before the sixth round is bright. Both Ray and De- Sanders will use the bout tonight a a lever to pry open their winter campaigns, and the lad that earns the popular decision will benefit consider ably in a financial way. The preliminary card is one that should keep the fans on their feet throughout. Beginning with the curtain raiser which brings Chalky Wim-ler and Jimmy Crawley together, until thp finish of the Ray-DeSanders mill, there should not be a slow moment. The second bout is between Johnny Fundy and -Jimmy McCoy, and Tommy Levine and Tommy Phillips mix things in the semi-final. STAGE IS SET FOR KISKI-INDIANA GAME Saltsburg; Pa- Xov. IS. The stage is set for the annual clash between the Indiana Normal and Kiskl football elevens here this afternoon, and there is little 1 doubt that the the comjbrtabe smoke All It Wants is a Chance. The Relu asks no favors, but only wants an opportunity to prove its claim as ."The Comfortable Smoke." Other men are praising Relu, and you will do the same when you make Its acquaintance.
