NEW YORK, Nov. 12.—The Philadelphia Nationals have been told that for Thompson, their fine second baseman they can get Hogan catcher of the Giants arid Benton a pitcher of the Giants, The suggestion made its way into tho office of tho Phillies and when President Baker of the latter club heard it he said: "Nothing doing. The Philadelphia club has once more arrived at the stage where it is not trading first division material on-a chance that It may get something now. We have some good players and a good manager and we are not heading toward a first division berth but toward a championship. I can't see where this team of which I am president, is not as promising as any other of the National \eaguo for 1930. We are look- ; ing for players not for uncertain trades. No one can break into the Philadelphia Infield by offering pitchers who have been traded once, have not met expectations with the club to which they were traded, and who might not win any better for us than for others. "Wo may not win a championship In 1930 but .me may get close to one and by 1931 possibly it will be the good fortune of tho Phillies to win a flag again and, as we won our first and pnly world serfes, we may be able to win, our second world series. "The Philadelphia club is confident that Southern will be a. better outfielder for them next season that he was last season. There seems to be no reason why O'Doul should not continue at a fast pace and with Klein, Southern and O'Doul the team Is held to be capable in the outfield, as capable, per- hops, as the other teams in that respect. Philadelphia is in no mood to make any change in the team except to acquire a tip top young catcher, if 'there Is one to be had, and to obtain the services of two good pitchers if they are to be found. Philadelphia lost a promising young catcher when Walter Lerian died in Baltimore after being crushed in a motor car accident. The Giants once had Thompson but permitted him to go when he did not appear to be needed for the New York infield. Pittsburgh als<5 had Thompson at one time. Since he left the major league clubs with first claim on him, he has developed Into one of the best fielding second baseman in baseball and when the schedule of 1929 be gan it was predicted that, with Theve- now as a running mate for Thompson, the Philadelphia infield would be one of the fastest a shortstop and second base in-either major league. As the Phillies were about to leave their training quarters in Florida, Thevenow. was injured in a motor car accident near Lakeland, Fla., and was unable to get back to his team until after mid season. The difference in tho Phillies when he returned was noticeable and managers of other teams than Philadelphia asserted at the close of this last campaign that Thevenow would bo as good for the Phillies In 1930 as he seemed likely to be for them this past season before he was hurt. The Philadelphia club has had its share of hard luck because of Injuries to its players in motor car accidents. The management wouldn't mind If the players would .play "safety first" every time they hear a motor car. Florida baseball men seem to think that the Boston Americans will not go back to their state to train next spring. The St. Louis; Nationals have returned to Bradenton where Boston trained in 1929 and Boston might be welcome at Avon Park where the Jardinals trained last spring but the mpression exists in Florida that Boston will seek training quarters In 3eorgla or Alabama next year. The nducements offered to clubs to go to Florida are not as liberal as they were three or four years ago. ST. FRANCIS ELEVEN PLAYS CRESSON GAME LORETTO, Nov. 12.—Home talent will play a large part—perhaps a deciding part—in the great game between St. Francis College and Fairmont College Saturday afternoon at Cresson. In this, the only College football gamo to be seen this season in Cambria County, Chick Crowell, of Patton, will be the biggest man on the St. Francis team and, as in all the previous games, is sure to be a powerful factor In the line. Then there is Salony, the great guard, who hails from Lilly. Salony has had hard luck this year but his injuries are rapidly mending and he will be in fine condition for the crucial battle Saturday. DiAnmy Billetdeaux and Bill Sullivan, the boys who pull those clever passes, are both Johnstown lads and then, of course, there Is Jerry Ingoldsby, of Cresson, who coaches the line ffir the Red Flash, Cambria County will be well represent by all of these men. With the St. Vincent's contest now passed Into history the center of Interest for the remainder of the week wi)l be the Fairmont game. This contest will be notable as the one convenient opportunity for local friends of the Red Flash to view their favorites In action. " V GREEN STAB COACHING. Myles Lane, one of the greatest Halfbacks Dartmouth has known, • and a member of the 1926, 1926 and 1927 elevens, is coaching the backfleld of the Big Green freshman squad. STUDENTS REACT WALKOUT OF 1920 The "walkout" celebration of the Altoona High students yesterday reminded many of the grads of a few years past of a similar celebration staged just nine years ago, when Altoona and Johnstown High began football relations. In the first game which was staged on the Point grounds at Johnstown Altoona High's team led by Captain Fasick defeated Johnstown High by a 21 to 14 score. The heroes of the ?ame were Eddie Ullery and Toughey Burket. Toughey Burket was playing his first year of football being a freshman. In the final minute of play Altoona had the ball on the twenty-yard lino. Ullery called for a forward pass and then raced across the goal line, were he waited and Burket heaved a perfect pass into his arms and Altoona scored the winning touchdown. The following Monday morning saw everything start as usual with the opening chapel exercises. Following chapel many of the students walked out and paraded around the building. At the end of the first period practically every student dismissed himself from classes. A parade permit was secured and also a rough box from N. A. Stevens which was used as a casket for Johnstown. The parade proceeded over the business section and then returned to the High school where permission was granted to conduct a funeral service tor Johnstown. Denny Stevens the cheer leader delivered the funeral address in the auditorium bfore a room full of students. The "casket" was then taken to the. vacant lot in the rear of the High school -\yhere preparations were made for a bon fire. A fire permit was asked for but refused on account of tho regulations not permitting fires after dark. The students assembled at 7 o'clqck and the. fire was started. Tho police Patrol, arrived shortly and several of the fellows loaded into the "wagon." They were taken to city hall being greeted there by several hundred student friends. The mayor arrived shortly and the cases were dismissed, but Altoona had their first. real touch of a football victory celebration; Since that time nine years ago Al- •toona has won many football victories but'none so sweet as the victory over 'Johnstown last Saturday, which again caused the "walkout."

As this is the Arlington Antelope's senior year, his football career has been ended by the injury. DEFENDS MAX IIT1E.
