Next year both the Browns and Cardinals will have new maiiag- ers. Killifer and Street. Both have short contracts. Both were-catchers. "Gabby" Street was a great catcher in his day, but always will be remembered as the first man to catch a baseball dropped from • the top of Washington monument. Billy Sullivan did it later on. Other catchers have caught baseballs dropped from airplanes. There was a glamor about Street's performance 21 years ago which hasn't *een duplicated. And a New Hobby. Arthur Herring, a right handed pitcher with the Detroit Tigers, filled out a questionnaire for'the information of the press when he joined the club. Herring came up from Altus, Oklahoma, having broken into baseball as an outfielder with Beaumont! In filling out the blank, Arthur wrote that- his hobby was having struck out thirteen batsmen in a Western league game. Today's News Yesterday. Baseball Is greatly admired by the Japanese. Two Japanese newspapermen covered the recent world series between Chicago and Philadelphia, filing from the press box directly to their home papers, box score and all. One unusual feature of the performance was that they were able to have the account and box score of Tuesday afternoon's game In Tuesday morning's paper. None of the most seasoned'American reporters could do that. Football Fools. So great Is the public's Interest In football that pools on the result of the' following Saturday's games are the most popular form of gambling at this season of the year. It is 'an insidious practice, commercializing what should be a cleanly, amateur sport among growirig boys. As yet, I have not been able to win one. Mike Hall Comes Home. Something should be done about the appetites of these race horses. When Papyrus, the English Derby winner, came to this county for a match race with Zev, poor Papyrus wasn't able to do a thing because he couldn't get his beer. At least, that was one of the fourteen alibis. Now comes Mike Hall, Robert Eastman's handsome thoroughbred, bacTt from the English turf without a prize —not even the short end( of one—to show for his trip. In explaining Mike Hall's failure in the Cambridgeshire, Chris Fitzgerald said: "The air was so bracing at Newmarket, Mike over-ate." The International Itaco. ' Apparently, the International race which turf men of Arlington Park hoped to promote, is to be a reality in 1930. While not engaged in procuring dyspepsia tablets \for Mike, Chris .Fitzgerald had time to talk the proposition over with English and French owners. A number of, them agreed to send horses. , Nothing was said about Irish owners, although the Irish have been sweeping the Bri^sh turf this year. The defeat of Southern California at the hands of California took spme of the glamor from next Saturday's meeting of .tfce Trojans and Notre Dame Irish at Soldier Field, Chicago, but the game still is most important from an intqrsectlonal point of view. If Notre Dame can repeat the victory won on this same field in 1927, there .may be less talk of the supremacy of far western elevens. The last time the Trojans came to Chicago for a contest with the Irish, fur flew and they still are squawking about the game out in California, Notre Dame won, 7 to.6, hut Southern California thought It should have won, and said so for some time afterwards.' "Help! Police!!" Howard Jones, head coach of U. S. C. and Morlay Drury. 1827 captain, stood up and cried that they had been robbed. It all was most unpleasant. What happened was that a Trojan pass across the Notre Ipame line was intercepted by Riley, Notre Dame quarterback,, who started to run it back across the line but dropped the ball, which subsequently was recovered by a Trojan forward. The officials ruled that Riley hadn't DUTCH REQ. U.S. PAT. OFF. MASTERS the DUTCH MASTERS Fifth Avenue Foil I0c Remembertheoldrecruiting8logan:"Join theMarinesand see the world"?

This made the ball dead and the Irish took it on downs. Had it been decided that Riley had obtained possession of the ball and then fumbled, Southern California would have won. The MtsSed Kick. It Is just possible that the reason Morley Drury yelled so loudly over the decision was his failure to convert the Trojan touchdowni which at least would have tied the score. Drury missed a field goal for the extra point, and this alone gave the Irish their victory. Next 'Saturday's game will revive memories of that 7—8 encounter, and will be hard fought In consequence. Notre Dame has won .a position as the country's outstanding football team, and needs only a victory over Southern California to confirm the verdict. California, despite a victory over the Trojans, did not look like a great eleven when In the East for the Penn game. "Nibs" Price may, have had something up his sleeve. He's a wily little cuss, always ready to admit he hasn't much of a team. The Stanford-California, game on November 23 should be a great one, although the odds will be on Stanford. It Is unlikely that "Nibs" can bring off two In a row, but stranger things have happened. • If the truth were known,'the head coach of the Bcurs probably Is so tickled by the outcome of the Southern California game that he is not worrying greatly about what happens a week-from Saturday. They take their football very seri- ously, out on the Pacific Coast. TM* loss of the Georgia Tech Tournament of Roses gailies on New Year's Day was a bitter one for the Golden Bears. The teams which go west this year must expect rough handling. The Army game on December 28 is the one for which Stanford is pointing. Last year's 26-0 trimming may be ft pleasant memory for the Cadets after Stanford finishes wiping up the chalk lines at Palo Alto with Biff Jones' boys next month. Carnegie Tech Is going out to try Southern California on December 14. Unfortunately, the Sklbos are not as strong as last year. WIN OVER JOHNSTOWN 13 GIVEN IN PROSE An Altoona High school alumnus has broken Into prose over the recent win from tho Johnstown rival. The offerings follow-: s Hard luck old Johnstown High, What could you do? Our Altoona High team Was too much for you. Each boy was a wonder, Courageous and true; They played like thunder— It's all over with you. Johnstown High, what made you shine so dim? You came on the field with blood'In your eyes, The game from Altoona to win. We are not lords of the domain, Of course that undoubtedly is true. But one thing we can safely say, We hold dominion over you. "ALUMNUS."' NOW PAYING COACHES. Philadelphia High schools this fall arp paying their football coaches for the flrst time. Previously teams were coached by instructors who received no salary. COMMERCIALIZED GAME. Two baseball teams from New'York and Brooklyn played a game in 1858 which is said to have been the first at which an admission fee was charged.

Dr. Knight Dunlop of Johns Hopkins, head 1 of the department of psychology, says the social value of the mechanical teamwork of football teams is no greater than "the teamwork of the gangs of slaves who raised the obelisks of Egypt." ... He says the abolition of Intercollegiate athletics would be an unmixed blessing, immediately "demolishing our alumni-athletic machines and enabling presidents and faculties to pursue more constructive policies." . . .. The touchdown which gave Princeton a 13-13 tie with Navy was a 45-yard pass from Dave Lowry to Charley Muldaur, a fourth-string player, and was Muldaur's Inspiration. MlIiI.VII.TjB MEETING. The Mlllville football team players are asked to report at 8.30 o'clock this evening at the Rolling mill grounds. Coach Harry Conroy wants to meet every- candidate without fall. Manager Edward Karl has something to say also. ~~ NATIONAL LEAGUE WAIVER PRICE TO BE ADVANCED BY MANAGERS By JOHN B. F08TEB . NEW YORK, Nov. 12.—A dlsctiBBlon is going the rounds about whether the National league should increase the amount of its waiver price to clubs of Its own circuit. The present sum la $4,000, that, of the American league li $7,500 and for Inter-league waivers the sum is also $7,500. Some National league teams considering whether to ask waivers on certain players, contend that the price is an undervaluation of players and apt to give a false impression as to the worth of National league players. On the other hand it Is argued that the waiver price between clubs of the same league should be merely nominal. Clubs should not seek profit In these transactions, runs the contention, but should be willing to help each other. The tendency elsewhere than In the National league has been to call tor a higher waiver price. The American league lifted Its price at the request of clubs that were advancing large sums of money to obtain new players. In the American Association, the waiver price Is $3,000 and In the Pacific Coaat $3,000 also. The International league price la $3,000, with a time limit of ten days In off-season transactions and forty-eight hours during the season. In other minor leagues of high classification, the waiver price is usually $1,000 to $2,000. The object of the waiver sum is to glvo the selling club some return for permitting the player to go. Occasionally the waiver price will cover a large amount of the, expenditure in securing a new player.'At othervtimes It Is only a small percentage of what,Is spent in getting new material. A suggestion that the waiver price bo made uniform for each league of a certain class interferes, of course, with the individual rights of the leagues. A minor league has player rights similar to that of the major leagues. The minor league can name a waiver valuation to suit itself. Naturally if it la too high there are not likely to be many players claimed by waiver. This agitation in regard to the waiver regulation between leagues is presumed to have been started prior to the minor league meeting in Chattanooga by those who are seeking to have some reduction made in the number of players who are under reservation. The minor leagues will again make the claim that they are starved to death for lack of material. Thomas Hlckey, president of the American Association, has made a public announcement that he favors curtailing the season of 1930 so that It will be over and out of the way by the time that the world series climax is reached. That does not mean that this will go into effect, because his league will have to act upon It, but it is very significant. The overhead of the minor leagues has been excessive because those of the highest classification have attempted to keep pace with the majors as nearly as they can, as many of thonl have clubs In close proximity to major league organizations. Those of lesser classification have tried to hold the pace of the higher- powered minors. All are demanding retrenchment of some kind but they wish to see it begin with the majors. They want them to cut down their total of reserve players. HEAR WOLF'S "VICTOR" THE GREATEST VALUE IN RADIO "COMPARE ITS TONE" 1501-03 Eleventh avenue.
