It hns been a song for years that if Harvard over learned ho wto throw a forward PUSH, the Crimson would be a dangerous team. This yenr It'seems Harvard has learned, and no man Is taking his teatn to Cambridge expecting a pushover. When Horwcen took up the job at Harvard, ho found relics of the Houghton regime all over tho place. It was "how iloughton would have done It" or "this Is the play that Houghton worked most." Horwctn gradually got rltl o£ the old system. He taught the team a couple of lateral passes to start with. It. was no time at all until the «ne- mies of the Crimson got onto the lateral passes. When you see backs gallop- Ing out to the flanks, and know that the team, has no forward pass, it's almost a cinch there's going to be a lateral pass. The Arm.u smeared these laterals all over MasHirehusotts last year. But now Harvard HCRHIB to have learned tho forward pass, and it makes things a little harder for the defense backs. If they leave their zones unprotected—plop! goes a forward pass that is very likely to decide a football game, The Philadelphia Nationals lost two players this year by death, and ono other was so seriously Injured that ho was out of the game for most of the season. Frank Ullrich promising young pitcher, was tho first to be taken by death. Hurt Shotton had buen depending upon him to bolster the pitching staff.

K. Hall & Co. ricnty n\g Knongli. Alblo Booth has no need to be as strenuous as Hlnkey was 30 years ngo. For one thing, his duties are, in the main, concerned with'the attack. Ho must be elusive, ratffer than devastating. Anyone who watched Booth in action agninst Dartmouth and the Army will agree that Albie la plenty lai-gp enough for any man's football team. He makes better use of his 144 pound* than any 200 pounder around thoso parts docs of 40 per cent more weight. Still there are some who maintain that "a good big man can beat a good little man" any time. There is a place In modern football for both sorts. Tnp little fellow who has sufficient poundage to withstand the rough tackling and still skip about is likely to be a lot harder to catch hold of than a big man. He can shift direction quicker, for one thing, a.nd that seems to be about 75 per cent, of the art of carrying a football, these days. For Forward I'nssliijf. It has been suggested that Alble Booth is not tall enough to see where ho is throwing passes. Height in this respect unquestionably is advantageous. Yale has no passing game this fall, as it happens, and most of Booth's bullet-like throws in the Dart- mought game were out of range of the Ilglble receivers. Speaking of eligible receivers recalls the anguish of the crowd in Yale Bowl on the occasion of the Army game, •when Yale was struggling up from behind. With Ells spread all across Lho gridiron, Booth shot a pans blindly In the direction of the Cadet goal to avoid being tackled for a heavy loss. The ball sailed swiftly and truly up to a- Yale man who had a clear field for a touchdown, and the crowd shrieked its delight. But the shrieks of delight turned to howls of dismay when the Yale player, looking around to seo that no Cadet was near, calmly let the ball whiz past him and hit the ground. He was Captain "Firpo" Greene, a guard, who was down there merely as interference, and had no right to touch the ball on a forward puss play. The instability of baseball-furnishes food for between-season thought. Sev/cn, possibly eight, major' league clubs will have new managers in 1930. Several of them changed pilots last winter also. Six has been about tho average change for the past few seasons. The average fan is puzzled by this constant shifting of responsibility. HV barely has time to become accustomed to one manager with a club, before another is appointed. Here are the new pilots for 1930-(thus far): New York Yankees, Bob Shawkey. Chicago White Sox, Donie Bush. St. Louis Browns, Bill Klllifer. Pittsburgh Pirates, Jewel Ens. Cincinnati Reds, Dan Howley. St. Louis Cardinals, Charley Street. Boston Braves, Bill McKechnie. It would not be at all surprising U new managers showed up in Brooklyn and Boston (Red Sox). Uncle Wilbert Robinson is Just about through as manager of tho Dodgers, while Bill Carrigans' contract with the Red Sox has run out. . There was a lime when & change (n managers was quit* an event in major league baseball. N6w it seems as though club owners must get 'together at tho close of each season, rub their hands briskly and Inquire: "Well, let's see. Who shall we make manager for next season?" Trnfles Jn Offing. Change in managers means change in players. The new boss has got to make good, and naturally brings some new ideas about player strength. The magnate loosens the rubber band on the old bank roll just a bit, and there Is a bull market in ivory. Here aro some of the transfers of well known players already arranged for 1930: Harry Hellnrann, Detroit to Cincinnati. Lester Bell, Boston to Chicago Cubs. Bob Meusel, Yankees to Cincinnati. Gene Robertson, Yankees to Braves. That's only a beginning. Wait until tho winter trade winds really start blowing. As a matter of expediency, many trades already consummated will not be disclosed Until the Booths and Marsters and Cagles have been shoved off tho sports pages. Of the^new managers for 1930, Shawkey and Bush have been promised generous financial support by their elub owners. So, apparently, has Dan Howley, .who started right in buying players. The fans are murmuring over the transfer of L/ester Bell to the Chicago Cubs. "Rogers Hornsby's got his boy friend with him again," they remark. Hornsby persuaded tho Braves to obtain Bell from St. Louis and now has Influenced Joe McCarthy to get Lester from Boston. If Rogers gets his wish and goes to Brooklyn as manager, Bell might as well pack up. He'll be moving. FROM WARM CLIMES.

Ccrtiiinly the world .series haven't proved thai. But it does seem an though John eiinnot have been entirely serious. Muybo he just was mad. Prosident Barnard's aasertion that the American leagua is 20 per cent. stronger than the National probably contains un element of exaggeration. The results of tho past three world series cannot be a basin for suclj a re- murlc, since the results of the past three world series demonstrate that the American league is 09 and 41-100 per cent stronger than the National. Mr. Heydler points with pride to the performances o£ some of the rising young players in the National league n« evidence, that hist circ.uit Is just as good ns any other. The solution seems to be to get tho Phillies into the world series. "A (!«od Itig Mun. . .

Frank Hlnkey undoubtedly was the greatest end ever to play football, and this goes for your Mullet's and all the rest. They had no forward passes In Hlnltny's day, and It was far harder for him to play at HI pounds than it would be now. The sort of tackling in which Hlnkey Indulged would just about week a modern football team.
