NEW YORK, Nov. 8.—Unofficial batting a.verages—and It is a safe hot that the official averaged will tell the same story—show that the all star outfield in the American league would be composed of Al Simmons of Philadelphia, Helnie Manush of St. Louis and Bob Fothergill of Detroit. Ruth would serve as a substitute, unless one is HO particular as to insist I hat he be a regular on the all star outfield because he has played 20 more games than Fothergill. As a matter of fact, there Is no reason to think that FothergiU'.s batting average would have suffered any had he played In more games. He la not that kind of a butter. The farther he goes the better he Is. He has grit and determination. Of course, to set against that, Babe Ruth hits many runs; but after all they will not win games unless there are other factors to help out. In the National league, by the (tame process, the all star outfield would be made up of Babe Herman of Brooklyn, Hlggs Slephenson of Chicago and Klki Cnyler, also of the Cubs. The average of the American league trio runs about .371 combined and that of the National league boys, about .367. On the National league all star outfield, Chuck Klein of Philadelphia might be retained as substitute, to serve as the home run hitter for the National league as Bubo Ruth la for the American league. The utility men balance fairly well. When it comes to fielding the American league all star trio are better than the National league outfit. Manush has a weakness for long drives and Fothergill, bulky as he Is, can cover the ground ahly. The combined value of Simmons, Manush and Fothergill Is around $200,000. They might even bring more. This is a better price, however, than would be paid for'the National league outfield. Cuyler Is the best fielder of the National league trio. Herman Is erratic. He is a fine batter, but his fielding and base running are grotesque. Stephenson is a made over Inflelder who has improved wonderfully and does well. His weakness is his inability to back up for a long hit, as a natural outfielder does. It hurt him in the world series. A fast sure man would have held Jimmy Dykes' fly in that famous seventh Inning when the Athletics scored their ten runs. Team 21 18918 B01 Machine. Shop. (.In. Pins Av.

N1SVV YORK, Nov. 7.—That nothing, or practically nothing new e::lsts under the sun, Including the football gridiron, is again made evident us a result of a search of this observer's memory hook for Incidents analogous to that of the University of Washington substitute who threw off his blanket, sprang from the bench and tackled a rival ball carrier, who, running loose, was on his way to a touchdown. Hitch nn incident occurred In the course of the game between the Naval academy team and the Grout Lakes training station eleven in 1917. A middle sub, seated upon the bench, found the strain too great for him when a training school back came down the sideline bound for a sure touchdown. In that occurrence the ruling of thn referee was the same as at Seattlo this fall—a. touchdown was awarded to the runner. And then there was that game between Washington and Lee and North Carolina, A. and M. on Thanksgiving day a. year or so before the world war. It Used to be an annual game at Norfolk and partisanship always ran very high. A lot (if the students began to celebrate the national day of gratitude a day or two before It arrived. And HO by Thursday the festive imdergrads were In a mood to celebrate victory and conversely not especiully attuned to the downfall of their liopoa—espec- ially as in many cases It would involve u long walk home. It was a closely contested game but W. and L. wag winning and there were penalties Infllctud upon North Carolina from time to time. So presently the late Robert W. Maxwell, who was the referee, begun to hear from the stands that low ominous growling from the Aggie sid« of the field such as you get from the wings in n. Roman mob scene. Maxwell did not like that sound at all. Well, presently, in the second half, a Washington and Lee man got loo»e and was coming down the aido- llnjs great guns, on his way to a touchdown. As he came abreast the ARE 8OCCKK TKA1MS J'l.AV. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 7.—Pennsylvania and Harvard will meet hern on Armistice duy in une of the. mont important intercollegiate .soccer mutches of the eeason. I'ennsylvtinlu, by H victory can further ntrt!iiKth«li KM claim to championship honorx. Tins local eleven is undefeated thi.s ueu.son. North Carolina b'encli a. Hub ran out and deftly stuck hlw foot between tho twinkling leK s ' Down went the runner, the ijall (lying from his arms while all the maddened cries that ever tt mob left loose rose from the spectators. Tiny Maxwell, who, In spite of his great' bulk was fast, wau running right behind the ball carrclr and, acting upon instinct, rather than conscious thought, he pasted that substitute on the button. The momentum of tho. blow carried Tiny into the bench and when he emerged from the pack he was wearing half a shirt and a black eye. Finally, however, he got the game started again. And one glance at the North Carolina side of the neld—the rooters had left the stand—convinced him that the end of the game would see one stout referee bound either for tho hospital or the morgue. Meanwhile at the other side of the field his questioning eye had discerned a small door in the fence, open, a taxi standing outside. N "How much time is left?" lie asked approaching the head linesman. "Seven minutes." Nodding, Tiny went over to the W. and L. quarterback, who, by the way, was not looking forward to the aftermath of this game with any degree of pleasure. "Send the next play out wide, toward the hole in the fence," Tiny ordered. "You don't have to try to gain. Merely carry the play across the Held and you'll hear something to your satisfaction." "The play want according to directions. Galloping In the wake of the ball Maxwell blew his whistle as the runner was downed. "Tho game," he yelled, "is over. W. and L. wins." So saying he made the gate in ten giant leaps and hopped Into tho cab, telling the driver there would be five dollars for him' If he beat the mob to the hotel, Which was done. As to his referee's fee, Tiny always explained as follows: "Look here, I always got my money before I started a game like that." AMD ALL &OVERMUNT IW V/l&W— ANJ'-AN'-ALL PRO PERTH K-J VlEVJ --fa-TO WAU-< MV PO'ST tM A MlLrfARV MAMNER -'A-A-to WALK MV— ETC DOUBLE The experts have been taking it on the chin regularly during this our football season, but that victory of California over Southern California knocked most of them flatter than Joe Beckett, the well-known .prone British heavyweight. When Nibs Price brought his Golden Bears cant to play Pennsylvania, the eastern division of experts were quite rude with his Nibs and his boys. To be sure the Bears beat Pennsylvania, but by only one touchdown. The team that could beat Penn by only one touchdown, the point was advanced, must expect to lose decisively to Southern California. Observers generally have held the Jones clan In higher esteem than California. Even last year, after Georgia Tech had beaten California, the cry was heard in some spots on the Pacific slope that Tech had not met the best team in California by a long ways. To bo sure California had tied U. S. C. in 1928, but that didn't seem to mean anything. The interpreting after the game, it appears, is half the battle. This year the interpreting doesn't seem to be quite so good. At any rate Nibs Price must be having a quiet little laugh at the expense of those lads who wrote that his team wasn't going anywhere in particular this season. The Stanford-California game remains in the way of Mr. Price's completa relaxation. After Stanford has won that one, which It probably will, yojj will have the spectacle of three beaten coast teams. Perhaps the San Francisco Seals can be gjven football outfits and sent against Notre Dame in the New Year's game. Jackson Cannell, coach of Dartmouth, probably publicly rebuked young Mr. Longncckor for throwing that forward puss to a Yale man and losing a ball game. However: Mr. Cannell might have taken tho erring youth to one side and consoled him with such words us "never mind that, old man, we all do things Ilk* that once in a while." It so happens that In 1916 in the Dartmouth-Princeton gamii, a young man named Jackson Cannell Hung a forward pass to a Princeton man and Princeton won the ball game, 6 to 3. Except for Georgia, Vala this year Heum.ii to know no Mar.stei'B. .Speaking about names, Colgate bent Humpden-Bydney the other day, 60 to 0. But how in the world could dear old Hampden-Sydney ever hope to win a ball game with a right guard named Pancake? After Indiana wins a football game, probably some time in 1930, those students who vowed not to shave until the team scored a victory can whack "em off with pleasure by using some of the wonderful shaving cream the coaches are endorsing. It had been taken pretty much for granted, before the California victory over U. S. C., that the Trojans would play the Notre Dame game with their street clothes on and a satchel in either hand. Now that assumption will have to be rewritten. Aubrey Devine, former All-America quarterback at Iowa, scouted Notre Dame for Southern California during the Irish battle with Georgia Tech. Mr. Devine unloaded his chest of the opinion .during the game that "Notre Dame has one of the greatest teams I ever have seen." Once during the battle with the Jackets, Jack Elder took the bull and broke through the line of scrimmage. Devine sat back and said: "I won't have to diagram that play. I have seen that boy on it before. He is gone. That's the same play he made 20 yards against Carnegie Tech with —the longest run of tho day for either team." Devine was 'asked of Southern California's chances of beating Notre Dame. "Their reserve power will be hard for any outfit to down," he replied. "They look like the champions or. near-champions to me." It has begun to look that way to lots of other people, too. Dili YOU KNOW THAT— At one stage of the Chicago-Princeton game, Chicago had four backs who never had played high school football surpassing Princeton's array of players developed by prep schools. . . . The four were Paul Stagg, Errett Van Nice, Harold Bluhm and Ben Wallenberg. . . . The chief reason why Art Feltcher didn't become man- ager of the Yankees, 'tis said, is that Mrs. Fletcher dodn't want him to. . . . Because he almost lost his health managing those Phils. . . . Members of the Ohio State teams are given complimentary tickets for their families . . . and Sam Selby, the Buckeyes' nifty guard, hag eight sisters. . . . Sam's work • against Pitt alone earns for him All-American consideration-. . . and we haven't met any of Sam's sisters, either. . . . Stuart Hoi- comb, Ohio's fullback, weighs 165 pounds. FAIRVIEW IS OTIIIXING. The Fairview Bulldogs are holding a roller skating party at Edgewood tonight, the, proceeds to be devoted to the grid team to defray'expenses. The affair contiues from 8 to 11 p. m. Players with tickets or cash must report tonight. Fairview will drill from 6 to 7 tonight at Twenty-first avenue and Third street.
