Coaches 11ortdng Gridiron Warriors Overtime to Be in Shape National Amateur Golf Title Tourney Opens at St. Louis n YALE, HARVARD, TIGERS BUILDING STRONG TEAMS .Cornell, Perm and Other Big Colleges Are Working Hard to Produce Powerful Elevens Jones Great Help to Blue Crimson Needs New Line Princeton Players Too Confident. (Bp the United Pre.) Kew Haven. Conn, Sept.' 17. Tale has hopes this fall to erase the painful memory of the 1920 football season when the Ells fell down before Boston College, Princeton and Harvard. Tad Jones, who left his business interests in Seattle lat year in the attempt to bring: Yale out of the rut, is back again in charge of the squad. He has been devoting his attention to the gridiron since the close of last season, when his -team was mauled by Harvard. Tale says openly, that too much is not expected of the team this year, that Jones is, laying the foundation of a system that may not begin to show results for another year or two. Prospects are none too bright for a championship team or for one that will defeat Princeton or Harvard, as both rivals in the "Big Three" V;avc a much brighter outlook. If Jones is able to fill Captain Callahan's place on the lino and discover some good material, the lilue ought to have a. fairly successful season, as the schedule is none too hard. The game with the military Academy which will mark the first trip of the Cadets away from the Plains for a game other than the Navy. v. iiioh is the mid-season feature of the schedule which includes. Bates, Sept. 24; Vermont.' Oct. 1; North Carolina Oct. 8; William Oct. 15; Army, Oct. 22; Brown, Oct 29; Maryland, Nov. 5; Princeton, Nov. 12;, Harvard, Nov. 19. The Tiger Confident. - (Bg the United Press.) , Princeton. N- J., Sept. 17. Only the cracking of a whip in the hands of Coach Bill Roper is keeping the Nassau Tigers from jumping out of the cage and starting a feast of the 1921 football meat. " Roper's greatest obstacle, as lie ap-nroaches the new season, is to restrain or keep within reasonable limits the optimism of the Princeton squad and the Nassau students. - Since the sauad reported, he has harped continually on the evil effects Princeton has every reason for jubi-- lation, as the prospects for a brilliant season could not be more promising. The nucleus of the 1920 eleven, which had a legitimate claim for the eastern championship is back.- . Uapi. cianiey is.ecK, Au-Aintntau tackle, and one of the .greatest forwards on the gridiron, is back with the team, as well as Don Lourie, the bril-. liant quarterback, and the great half- backs, Gilroy and Gharrity. In addition mere are a numuvr ui own v-j a who were ineligible last year. Murrey, Lhe star drop-kicker; Scheerer, the best punter in the east last year, and the dynamic Mike Callahan, are gone, but there are good second-string men ready to take their places. One of the features on the schedule ia the first international game with Chicago at Princeton. Another game . of importance is with the Navy at An-. j - The schedule follows: Swarthmore, Oct. 1; Colgate, Oct. 8; Both Boxers Are Reported In Shape Chief Halftown, the Irving, N. T.. Indian middleweight, and Frankie Schoell, Buffalo welterweight, who will box the main bout of 12 rounds for the Queensberry club at the Broadway auditorium next Monday night, are reported in fine fettle for their Joust with the big gloves. Speculation around boxing circles is on the length of the battle, for some are of the opinion that Schoell will wear down the Indian by his speed and fast boxing, while others incline to the impression that Schoell Js going out of hia weight class with a middleweight who can step some him-tself. . . If one lends ear to the whisperings of Ben Bliven, then Halftown is right now standing up listening to the referee count the fatal 10 over the prostrate form of Schoell. ' If a fan turns to the Schoell camp he will hear a convincing statement .that Schoell will go around Haltown as a cooper works around a barrel, and that the Indian will be dizzy from running Into left jabs and right hooks. Frita Meiler meets Scotty Lisner of Hamilton in the semi-final of 10 rounds, while Bud Merritt will have a "task with Joe Joynt of Lackawanna. -Al Proctor and Dan Melarky will try , to annihilate each other. G0H0-G0BAR GETTING ON AS WRESTLER Goho Gobar, present holder of the India championship, is showing such wonderful 'improvement -over his former work that many critics predict that this famous Hindu will be the contender this season for the world's title. Gobar. now wrestling under the management of Maxwell Bowman, has been showing his skill on the other side of the Mississippi river. In all his ,tr.hM he has given the wrestling fans an example what a real wrestler ia capable of performing. He has met the western champions and In all his matches, barring the Lewis match, has v.o mit the victor. The Lewis match was one of the most sensational ever seen in San Francisco. Amuus ma tims are, Mort nenuersuu, iummj Draak and Ad. Santel, the latter being considered as the best man out west. i.ranager Ed Delivuk is making ar-Sngtments to bring Gobar to Buffalo in return match with Lewis and. if Successful, Buffalo will witness the hlfce wrestling match ol ! the Jn. Through his manager, the Hindu has Sroed challenge to all the best trrestlers in the conntry. AMATEUR BASEBALL . ot-ThP Front dia- will monu . o T..,v fra.

Cambridge, Mass., Sept. 17. Line problems are the only football troubles faced by Harvard as the Crimson gets ready for the biggest season in years. Head Coach Bob Fisher is frank in saying that much of fi success depends on the development of good linemen toi replace the heavy forwards graduated last year. . With Capt. Kane .it the end and Tolbert available, Fisher has the foundation for a good line, but the prospects are none too bright, as Jittle Is known of the other candidates. -The backfield will not occasion much worry, as Owen.

Games with Indiana, Georgia, Penn State and Centre are features of the card. Harvard had a very successful season last year, finishing with a clean slate in nine games.

"What will Penn do under her second year of Heisman's rule?" is causing speculation on , the Pennsylvania campus. : If any kind of luck is experienced in the development of the new material, Penn ought to have a successful sea-eoni as the schedule, the easiest in years, seems to have been drawn foi' that purpose. Drastic changes were made in thd coaching personnel. Heisman still remains as the chief, but "Buck" Whar-. tion. line coach since 1898, has been dropped. Gag Wigler taking his place.

THE DAY'S PLAY How to Enjoy (By SOL METZGER) (Veteran Football Coach.) j Of recent years and for the first time the football fan has been consid ered. Certain it is that the numbering or players ; was; generally aaopiea in consideration of ! him. This year there Has been certain changes made In the I rules In order that he may more fully understand the play. But precious little has been done I to familiarize him with! its governing principles. i For the purpose of-doing this very thing, for the purpose of stripping the game of the complexities that do exist m the public imind regarding It, the writer is setting down in this series of weekly articles,' of which this is the first, a simple! story of what football ts about so that the spectator may reap that greater measure of pleasure from witnessing A. game that always falls to one who knows why the clock ticks. : Fortunately, j football lends itself readily to this purpose. Stripped of its technical camouflage, no sport is based On more simple principles of common sense, all of which are easily understood by one who has never played the game. Were (this not so, those few coaches who hve proven successful, although they Were never varsity players when in college, and those count-Jess numbers 6 stars of every season, although b.ut mere boys, would be unknown to the sport. Football is neither Intricate, nor complicated, nor beyond the ken of he! who follows it. No wizards has entered into its growth. Thus, he Who cares to follow this game wth complete I understanding and thus have! the greatest enjoyment as a fan, may easily do'so,. for it is the writer's purpose to interpret tor tne puduc in (this series. i j j ... Harvard's System Made Clear. , Let an examjple prove the contention that football is built upon simple, common sense principles. No one system of play of recent years has been more wideiv commiented upon than that created by' Haughton at Harvard. And, as in all systems of play, success rested lupon the play of the rush line. It is no'rnore of aJ mystery to the average fan than 'to a! coach that a back can not move forward unless his rush line clears the wayj Haugnton Dasea Har-'.,!. ...ofomiAf rush line nlav on this principle, but, instead of having anything intricate! about , the play of his rush lines his plan was simplicity itself. It was nothing more than to have his forwards, lined! up shoulder to shoulder, charge straight ahead. Openings were not sought for. I Haughton believed and brightly, that if the line advanced tne backs were bouna to. Much has been written of the failure of Harvard ti I mumber Its players. A clear reason, I rladily understood, has been the cause, although football writers have been inclined to attribute this stand of ithe Crimson school to jsome mysterious aim upij u.uucn principle or pjay mat uueui u? unclosed were the Harvard players known to the scouts I of other teams. Nothing of this sort has been back of the determination of the Cambridge football authorities not to number playera j Every person will agree that of a group of severi men there will be differences in their speed, actions, movements, strength and ability to do any particular act.! Now, there are seven men on a rush line. In opening holes, in charging back opponents, there can be no variation to the principle-already lairi flown. Some of these seven can do such a job better than others.' That goes without! paying. Spectators at a football game Fin which Harvard plays will recall the fact that before most running plays the Crimson eleven shifts its linemen about. It will Tiot now be difficult to explain to them the reason why Harvard objects to having its players numbered. Tt would identify them This I would not permit , this eleven to follow its simple plan of attack, a plan that calls for shifting the best of the seven at charging to the point of attack, simply because scouts watching Harvard would then be able to note where a. great many plays were to be directed before their start. So far. Harvard; has been able to apply this very simple plan to its attack without its opponents noting It, all because their players have not been numbered. Now.j I ask, is there anything complicated about all this? Isn't it as simple as the hose on your face? And, let me add. If j you strip all football of its camouflage you find the same basic principles of j common sense back ot it. The Principles of the Kick-off. nnt let us itake uo the game step by step so we may best interpret its principles for its many fans. The first play of football Is the kick-off. Let ua analyze it aS we have the few points about the Harvard system. One teamj spread across Its 40-yard line, kicks the- bail to its- opponent; the members PLAYERS START Football Games of the latter eleven being! placed at various points well distributed over that area, the ball can be! kicked to. Why this method of placing men preparatory to play? In the lease of the team kicking, so it may be sure to have tjacklers reach any point j where the ball falls in the least possible time, thus preventing the ball being returned ty a run. In the case of . the Other eleven, so it will be sure to have a man in position to catch the ball 1 wherever it falls. As both teams! have equal rights to possession of the ball this latter formation is vital.! t There are flight variations to thes i formations but all elevens follow these simple principles. It is common ! sense to do liO. ! !;' ; ., - '.- - : j j- - '. - Let us next concern ourselves with uhe simple principles governing the action of each team when! ithe ball is kicked. The dominating orie of the kicking team is to have the ball kicked as !iigh as possible and farj down 'the peld. Hence, those high tees of . mud upon! which the ball is placed. This l akes more time for a high ball to reach a given point down the field than a ball of low trajectory. Thus, players running !down to make the tackle, save previous yards and usually j prevent the kick-off being run back any distance. The reverse is true when a ball is kicked close to the ground! Then, the defense is able to carry it j well on the field. One other principle governs the ;ick-off, used only when! the kicking team purposely kicked to a slow runner simply because the time element again ermits the tacklers-to get i him farther flown the field than they jwould a fast unner. The game of. football Is a ame built around the gaining Of yards. They are precious. L j Similar principles apply to the team receiving the kick-off. j Watch most any player catching a kick -off and you twill see him run forward,! straight up the field. That line is not only the shortest distance to thtej opponent's goal,! but by following It he also gets nearer to this goal before ibeing tackled than! if he ran toward oriel side or the bther. Either of the latter movements gives the tacklers more time in which to reach him. - j I ' The last important principle governing the receiving Of i the kick-off has to deal with the 10 1 players not catching it. If you note; Jthem at the nextj game you witness 3fou will see them running at full speed to a point in front of the man catching the ball. As they are nearer to him than the opponents they reach this position before the tacklers arrive there. Here they form In front of the catcher and they attempt to block off tacklers, should tacklers arrive before the ball is caught, or, should the ball be caught first, then run interference for the catcher straight ahead . over the course cbosen in advance the straight line. from where the ball is caught to be opponent's goal. Surely there is nothing; about any of the principles governing! the play of eithereleven in this flrsti movement of a game that is beyond the! comprehension of the spectator. In; fact. In considering them for a morhent, you will note those fatcor? and ; forces which govern all football. Youiiote the value of the individual in the: game in the case of the kicker and thd catcher and the dominating power of the team as either tacklers or interferes gain the upper hand in the effort of one eleven to run back the kick-off or the effort of the other to prevent this by getting its tacklers to this runner. Note these points when next you view a game. They will jdetermine In a large measure the success of failure of this . play. Football! is withal a match of similar forces, .'individualistic and co-operative, with the success of the team always depending upon the play of the individual. ! (Let the interfere fail in this case ! to block the tackier and. the team suffers loss of Drecious yards, or vlceyersa. Thus football is shown to be 6. game of cooperation, depending in every case upon the members of either team to outplay hi opponent. And that is why it has not only become our most popular fall i sport, but is also (recognized by educational institutions as a great con structive game. After all, team play, depending upon the individual, is what we want our sport to teaen our youtn. Copyright 1921, Sol Metzger.) '-: !- - . . .... , -. i ! . INTER-PARISH LEAGUE.

LARGE FIELD OF GOLFERS More Than 100 Crack Players Star Links First Time Event Has Been Staged West of Chicago-British Champion is Entered. (Br Robert E. Harlow. Written -Ex pressly for International News Service.) St. Louis, Sept; 17. The amateur goir championship of: the United States assumed real national characteristics today when for the first time the Pacific coast was adequately represented in the field of more than 100 starters. This is the first time the tournament has been conducted west of Chicago, and the amateuijj players who live along the pacinc seaboard ana in tar western states havp taken adavntage of an opportunity, to convince eastern players that distance alone has prevented them from taking rank with the foremost amateurs of the nation. Ten of the finest Pacific coast golfers are here in complete and they hope to " qualify enough players so that a question can nfever be raised concerning the quality I of golf played by the followers of the game in the far west. p-s-en 2F EDWARD .. - : li. One of the most important featherweight championship contests that has been arranged In several years will take place in Cleveland this afternoon when Johnny Kilbane, champion, will defend his title against Danny Frush, the Baltimore challenger and recognized as the chief contender. Tremendous interest has been aroused in the event chiefly because Frush is regarded by many expert critics as a dangerous contender, while Kilbane is believed to have reached that age in life where his usefulness as sidered. ., Ki :-: . Most anybody will admit that the highly favorable to the champion, but in these days of title contests the champions usually dictate terms that suit their own convenience, with little consid eration for the claims of the challengers. Kilbane is to receive $60,000 for this battle, win, lose or draw. Frush must make weight; Kilbane need not. Frush is to receive $2,500, which will just about pay his heavy training expenses. Frush s reward for1 this battle is the chance of annexing the featherweight crown, j He may and he may not. If he does the $2,500 purse for today's battle will not be a drort in the bucket tn what he will re an rlummAn w - r ' w a VW VllUlUIVll in the future. If ht should dethrone Kilbane and hang onto the crown Jialf as long as Kilbane held it he will acquire riches, for Kilbane has become wealthy since he scorec over Abe Attell in California many years ago. . . Kilbane h, a 10 to 8 favorite. The gambling element that always follows a big fistic event, and which makes a close study when risking large sums, has it all doped out that Kilbane's speed, his dazzling boxing and his dangerous right cross will save him from disaster. The long shot boys will be taking the short end andj hoping that Frush's youth and stamina will offset a veteran's speed and science. " Some argue that if Frush lasts four rounds he has a good chance, for Kilbane is bound to slow up. Johnny has made it known he regards this bout as one of the most important in his long career, and announces he will be fit as he ever was and will try to stop Frush in jigtime. It should be an interesting title bout. ABOUT FOOTBALL. Dim Batterson will not coach Masten Park this fall- It is said the school could not meet the demands of Batterson. who could not neglect his business otherwise. Lee. Benedict,, former Allegeny ccllege star, will coach the boys from the hill. No coach has - been selected for Technical as yet, but the Red machine promises to be as good as last year. Coach Sparfield of Lafayette is being assisted by Bill Gehring, former violet and white football wonder. According to reports Gehring is putting the west side youngsters through the hardest work they have ever had in preparation for a Harvardjbup series. Really, we y believe this i what those Lafayette Rids need. We know this to be a fact Insofar ns the last two seasons are concerned. The boys were living on past football glories instead of pluggn away. Smoking and staying up late at night, in disregard I or a sincere coacn s aavice, is not con- ductive of ood footbx'i. But it promi- s?s to be airrerf iu mis year. . M5fe- ; CONFIDENT, EH!
