In two plays the leather waa on the one-yurd tunrk and on the third Colemau used himself to bore through centre for the touchdown that broke the tie. Morrison kicked for the extra point, rttiii. Northeast had the consolation of knowing that she had halted Mor rison insofar as long run were concerned. Even this meed of consolation waa lost to the lean-seasoned losers when Morrison broke away for his alxty-five yard jaunt late in the last period. Morrison traversed the identical aide line route that Friedman bad covered for bis touchdown. Merrill, however, led the pack by about ten yards and nobody even bad a chance to catch bim once be passed midlield the Archives tried desperately for score In the few darkened minutes that remained thereafter and brought the oval to the tliirty-fava yard mark but that was as far at they got. Dave Ball, who has become almost a tradition in Northeast High School athletics, waa yesterday presented a little token of appreciation by the members of the defeated Northeast High School football team. But old Knve, custodian of the field, waa in a by no means jubilant frame of mind "Here I've been for the past six years." sighed old Dave after the fray, and this is the first time I've seen those boys from over the fence come In here and defeat 'my lads.'

They now devote considerable of their time to bowling do these tour ex-headliners, and last night they matched their skill against other diamond competitors, men of the present moment. The vets, in the above camera view are, left to right, Harry Davis, former captain and first baseman of the Athletics) Matt Kilroy, Jr., son of the famous Matt, who was a rare leii-nanaer in nis day) Monte cross, one-time shortstop of the f hits, then Macks, and one of the greatest throwing shortstops of all time Charles Albert "Chief" Bender, a pitcher C. Mack proclaims as the greatest of all money series pitchers, and Steve Yerkes, former seconi baseman of the Boston Red Son in the days when the Red Hose either won American League pennants or finished third or better. OVER FIFTY FIRST YEAR PLAYERS SHOWED WELL IN . BASEBALL DURING SEASON By JOE VILA (Copntiht. mm L OOKIN'ti over the records of the major league teama for the late cauipiiigu, the interesting fact Is disclosed that more than tifly first-year players showed high-grade skill. These oiing men displayed unusual quality considering their limited experience in fnsl company, and some of tbeui, if cITcred lor sale, would command high price K Take the case of Big Ed Morris, of the Boston Ked Sox, for instance! A year ago at this time he was purchased frisn tin obscure minor league club for H comparatively small Hum of money, vet. today the Boston club, no doubt, could obtain $1ommhj cash for his release from such wealthy clubs as the Yankees, Athletics, White Hon, Cleve-hauls and Detroits. Morris is tha best right-handed pitcher who has broken Into tha ' American League In many years. Supported by tha tall end Red Sox last season, he compiled the noteworthy record of nineteen vlotorles and fifteen defeats and pitched a total of two hundred and fifty-nine innings. Manager Carrigan, of tha Red $ox, has refused to consider offers of any kind for his pitching ace, for Carrigan knows that the departure of Morris from Fenway Park would prove a fatal move, Inasmuch as Boston fans now are convinced that their American League team soon will be built up into a winner. Other capable young , pitchers who cnine- through with a fair amount of ' this year vera Victor Solleli, of Detroit; flssie Orwoll and George lOurnshiiw. of the Athletics; Kd Walsh. Jr.. and Grady Atkins, of the White N.x; iig.len, Jtlneholder and Beck, of the Browns, and .Setllemire of the Red Nox. Connie Mack spent nearly JPTS,-("Mi to get Orwoll and Karnshnw, while Ogdeii wms purchased lv I'hil Bell from Baltimore for .f.j.lKsi. The others were comparatively cheap. The new inlielders who measured up to the requirements in the American League were Clancy, of the White Sex, mid Sweeney, of the Tigers, first basemen; Keillein, of the White Hox; Brnii-ihmi, of I he Browns, and Lind of the Indians, ;.eennd basemen. The shortstops were Ciasel. of the White Sox: Kress, of the Browns, and Cronin, of the Senators. Kress and Brnnnon attracted widespread attention as soon as they reported to Manager Howley, and they played through the season In r. fashion. Lind developed into ond baseman seen on the i ,..uu leaiii since i lie passing of Bill Oamlisganns. Cissell was bought by I twner Somiskey last winter for $12.5 -IMHI from the 1'ortliiml Coast Lengu'e cifib. HUBBtLL ALREADY A STAR TJ M.l..l.i, ciitics readily admit I turn John McGraw, of the Giants, invowred the prize pitcher of the National League in Carl Hubbell i.isi summer. Mcoraw unexpectedly bought Hubbell from a Texaa League coin i o wnicn ue nan necn released out right by the Detroit Tigers. With virtually no major learna exne rience. Hubhcll nrnmntlv disclosed - eiency that helped the Giants to finish in second position. The young southpaw's record under McGraw's mentor shin whs ten victories and six defeats, inn rka ble I he I -est greatest pitchers that the Giants' manager ever has obtained. Another clever left-hander who has i bright future Is Fussell, of the Pirates. He did not begin to prove his worth until midsummer, when he began to take a regular turn In tha box and defeated nearly all of the contenders for the chanw plonshlp. Brandt, also a aouthpaw, did line work for the Boston Braves. Other first-year aharpshootera In the Heydler circuit who will be retained are Milligan and Uenge, of the Phillies; Ash and Jablonowski, of the Beds; Pat Malone, of the Cubs; Hnid and Sylvester Johnson, of the Cardinals: Mobb. of the Dodgers; Brame, of the Pirates, and Faulkner, of the Giants. YOUTH IN PARENT LEAGUE TUB National League race was marked by tbe intrisjuction of two Botanli1 tirut,nA.. lBun- up. ....... ..,r. uintiiiCK. UIOD" nette, of the Dodgers, batted .310 and knocked out twenty-five home runs, although hitherto lie had confined his efforts to minor league ball. Hurst, of the Phillies, who waa secured from Syracuse in connection with the truiis-fer of Jimmy Wilson to the Cardinals, tutted ,27 in a hundred and seven games and recorded nineteen homera. At second base the newcomers were Andy Cohen, of the Giants, who batted .275 In 129 games; Fred McGuire, of the Cubs, who has been traded te the Braves' In the Horasby deal, and Norman McMillan, also of the Cubs. MoGuire as a fielder has no superior at the middle hag In the parent organisation. Whitney, of the Phillies, proved a big surprise at third base. Coming direct from the minors, be batted .JHt3. and Manager Shotton Bays that he will remain at the "hot corner" permanently. Another smart yearling is Kartell, of the Pirates, who played shortston In many games during the indisposition of the noted Glenn Wright. Manager Shotton has received credit for digging up the hardest-hitting young outfielder In the National League. Ha bought Klein from a minor league club last summer and tha boy Instantly Jumped into favor at Baker Bowl.' In sixty-four games he rolled up a batting average of .360 and walloped the apple for eleven home runs. National League men will not be surprised If Klein wins a nt Miniii , S . I...!,... i-.- .. n the majors next year. He Is a natural hitter and is sure to Improve as he becomes familiar with enemy pitchers. Sbotton developed another U(I III FIRST Bout Is Highlight of Amateur Tourney Staged by Had dington Club TIlhi first round preliminaries of an open amateur boxing tournament was staged last night in the Moth er of Sorrow s I lull, Forty-seventh street ond Wyultisiug aveuue, under the auspices of the Huddington Club. Only eleven bouts were ou view for the fistic funs due to the fart that a Hinnll number entered the tournament. The semi and linul bouts wiU be held tomorrow night, when twenty scraps are scheduled. One bout, the final of the evening in the 147-pound division, went four rounds, alter which the judges decided that John Walton was the better puncher than Kid Schaeffer from Herrmann's gym. Three of the eleven bouts ended in knockouts, the others going the regular three-rouud route. Frank Johnson won the most Imnres. of the Haddington club, in the first knocked out his rival, Tony Acchione, son, who packed dynamite in both his round. Johnson, a burly battler from the Arena club, dropped Tony four times in the three minutes uf action. The final time, Tony took the count of ten delivered by Keferee Herman Hin-din. It waa a great victory for John-sive bout of the evening when he left and right mitts. Bill Hitller, of the Cambria club, won on a technical knockout over Teddy Jones, representing the Mask and Wig. when Heferee Hindin stonoed the bout in the second round to sine Jones fur- tner punishment. Another bout which terminated via a technical knockout in the first round. in the 147-pound class, was the bout between Stanley Spurkle, of the Neighborhood club, and Elmer Williams, of the Musk and Wig, the former winning the contest. Another great setto was that h. tween Joe O'Xeil. of the Corsac club, and Henry Taggert, of Haddington. The boys in the ermine gave the nod to O'Neil, who deserved the verdict as he lunded the cleaner and harder punches. iei mere were a tew fans who were disappointed when It was announced thut O'Neil was the victor. They seemed to believe that Taggert should have received the verdict, ami they did not hesitate in oivA van, tt their feelings. ir.'.Pound ClsnsHenrr toiusun. Arena, wked nut frank Jlulso.

The winning combination was composed of four players who were with the Athletics during the past season and another who was a representative of the Phillies' pitching staff. They are: "Bullet" Joe Bush. "Bing" Miller. Jimmy Dykes nnd Claude Yerkes, of the A's, and Bud Walker, young twirler of the Phils. Tbe defuuted outfit v. us made up of such famous old-timera as Chief Bender, Harry Davis. Matt KUroy, Jr., Monte Cross and Steve Yerkes, It waa no other than Jimmy Dykes himself who was the outstanding performer in the match. He evoked loud applause from the large crowd time after time when he sent Ida bull rolling down tbe polished alley for strike after strike. Jimmy was the high scorer of the contest, be collecting 204 in bis first game, 2ol in tbe second aud no fewer than -13 in bia third and final game, earning a grand total of 0-0 pins. Steve Yerkes did the best for the defeated quintette. He gathered 208 in bis first game, 227 in the second and 175 in his third gume, making a total of CIO pins. Hurry Davis aud .Chief Bender and Monte Cross didu't do so bad, either. These old boys do not bowl as often as some of those who opposed them, and they are deserving of much commendation for tbe fine oppositin they furnished. Sachem Bender had a little hard luck throughout his three games, and be bad to be contented with 174 for bis first game, 151) for the second and 151 for his final one, gathering a total of 4b4. Davis bowled 14ti, 170 and 163 for 481, while Cross wangled tbe wooden bolt es for a totu of 47ti. Joe Bush, on vthe other baud, had the highest score for one game. He astonished the spectators with his wis ardry iu his first game, in which he garnered 1.1 Ki. In the others Joe didn't do so well, only getting 140 and 153 in the second and third.

The conquest sent Norman Shay's men spinning to the top of tbe Canadian-American League standing, proud in their undisputed possession of the top rung. ' v. It was in an extra ten-minute period which bristled with action from tbe clang of the gong to the final whistle that the Arrows nicked in the winning goals. Handicapped Arrows Protect Goal The Reds bad taken the lead in tbe second period on a shot by Mondou and Norman Shay's men had knotted the count in the third period, necessitating the extra session. Misfortune struck the Arrows in the opening momenta of the extra session, for first Peters waa sent to the coop for tripping, leaving but four Quakers as defense, and then Meeking was chased for high stick work. This threw tha entire defense bur .1,. An 1 n 1 1 . PI-., MIdlq Vanlrnwaki land Nobby Clarke.

But it waa the hour before the dawn for Shay's red-blooded, fighting men. The tension slackened a bit when Pete skated out of the coop, and when Meeking jumped the bars the multitude burst into a frenzy which caught the Arrows in. its grasp, fired them with inspiration and sent them down the ice with that victorious spun. Meeking Drives Two Into Net In an irresistible phalanx, Briden, Meeking and Peters slashed their way through the stunned visitors. Briden passed to Meeking, Harry knifed the puck to Peters and "Sure Shot" whipped it back to Meeking. Harry was but fifteen feet from the goal with fear-driven Reds dashing fnriouslv at him.

Thia feat was a gem Itself, a duplicate of that daRh which scored tbe second goal in the Newark tilt two weeks ago.
