TAMFA TIBUi;::, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1925 PAGE 11-H CLOSER RELATIONS SEEN IN STATE INTERC EGIATECIR GLES Florida, Southern, Rollins Seek Games With Hatters; 1524 Contests Cancelled Stetson Makes Plans to Apply ' for Membership in S. I. A. A. at Next Meeting; Eligibility Rules Now Enforced By HARRIS SIMS " STETSON UNIVERSITY. DELAXD. Oct, S4. A new era looms up for Stetson University In the realm of sports tf communications received by Coch McQuillan from the Univeraity of Florida, Southern College and ' Rollins re any fair indications, and ir la ir&dr certain that they are not only fair Indications but absolute ; pointers toward a reality. Each of the three, institutions applied to Coach McQuillan for Freshman gridiron matches to be played soma time during the present season, and already Coach McQuillan has no-. titled Southern and Rollins that he Is 'ready to play the proposed "frames. It is now only a matter of arranging the dates, and it is fairly certain that no difficulty will be encountered in this respect, since the Freshman teams of Stetson. Southern and Rollins all have comparatively scant schedules, with a number of open dates. No Game With Gators " No ft will take place between the Freshman Oators and the Stetson Freshman eleven this season due to the fact that Florida could play only ' on Oct. 16, that being- her only convenient and plausible date, and un- fortunately it so happened that Coach McQuillan ' couldn't meet this date, ' since he left the next morning with his tireen ana wmie mucnino Tifton, Ga.. where the Hatters met ' the South Georgia A. and M. eleven on the following Monday. Coach McQuillan is highly elated over the recent developments which ' are prima facie evidence of the best of relations in the realm of intercollegiate- snorts in the State of Flor ida, ana ejtpressea regret ow- wic fct that it was impossible for him to meet the Gator Freshman with his "Freshman on October 16. There is a distant possibility, however, that a match between the Gator ' and Hatter Freshman will be arranged to take place at some other date later n in the season. Southern Varsity Applies Coach McQuillan stated that Coach JIaygood of Southern College asked - for a varsitv match several days ago, but said that he and the Southern mentor have not been able, thus far, to match dates. Southern proposed a game for Oct. 31. but Coach McQuillan states that he had already sched- , uled the game with Springhill and could not line up with Coach Haygood on that date. The two mentors are still communicating and a match between the Southern and Stetson var- sltv elevens may ultimately develop. The Freshman games with Southern and Rollins will be played in Lakeland and Winter Park, respectively, and it is certain that these matches will attract wide attention. Coach McQuillan hopes to be able to announce the dates for these matches within the next few days. In going up against the Southern " freshman. Stetson will lock horns with pii eleven which Is stronger than its varsitv, and it Is believed that the . Rollins rats compare in a similar manner with their varity eleven. The clash of a few days ago between th-Mtetson varsity and freshman revealed il siignt superiority in iavur 01 me varsity. Hatter Camp Rejoices The encouraging communications j-hould be occasion for great rejoicing in the Hatter camp, and it is certain that they are. - As far as the actual games utem-are concerned, there is not a tremendous amount of importance at tached to- them. Il is in the Kigniil-cance the turn of eent that the importance and caune for rejoicing lie, for it seems that Florida. Southern and Rollins have held out their bands to Stetson and asked Coach McQuillan to join hands and complete the circle as it should be. It is a highlv commendable move which says in effect. "Let's quit pulling against each other, and go to pulling together." It will be recalled by football fans of tWs state that last season Coach .MrC if lan admitted that he was playing U a on the aHtter tam who were inelisole according to the ruling set down for guidance, and as a culniina- t'oti and result of series of subsequent tlelopments the games which Ntet-.-n had scheduled with. Florida, Soutnrn and-Rollins were eventually v cancelled. Stetson - Want In S. I. A. A. This season it has been evident from the - start that Coach McQuillan has only those men on, his scuad who are eligible in every respect. He has placed his cards on the table, it would seem, and is steering a clear path toward .' membership in the Southern Inter- i csllegiate Athletic Association. By. . using men who ' are absolutely egible Coach McQuillan is greatly handicapped this season, and his Hatter machine is seriously weakened, but he has adopted a policy which is already bringing happy results, as is evidenced by the ' developments made know yesterday. The break in relationship between Stetson and the other three institutions in the realm of sports has been " a condition ereatlv denlored and re- " greeted ir Count less numbers of- fans . ove rt he State and it -is certain that the recent trend of events and de-." velopments will be greeted with high approval. ; i Stetson will apply for member- ship in the S. I. A. A. in December, at-will also be the case with Southern. Rollins - is already a membjfcr. ' These recent developments point to- ward -a greater Hatter program for t the J926 season, "for it is safely to be proftumed that tresent indications point toward first class - varsity 1 matches between Stetson and the . otter three, institutions. '. IL la believed that - Stetson will in all probability appear on the schedules of i Florida, Southern and Rollins, for ; uu(wu maicnes aunng . me i . preaching season. ; .

The Wolverines, humiliated by the 3! to 14 defeat of a year ago, achieved their victory near the finish of the second period, when Friedman, Yost s star quarterback, booted a field goal at a diffi cult angle rom the 24-yard line after ne ana nis team mates nad advanced the ball from midfield. The Wolverines (tot possession of the hall when Oosterbaan. Intercepted Britton's pass. Friedman started, a triple pass that was largely responsible for the sain that enabled him to he in position to boot the goal. From behind his own line of scrim mate Fri1man passed to Bahcock who in turn handed the oval to Gregory. The play was so deceptive that the bewildered Illini did not know for the instant who had the ball. Gregory sprinted 13 yards around left end, running to Illinois lu-yard line be fore he was stopped. Friedman slammed into center without gain. Molenda, however, picked up four yards through, center, taking the ball to Illinois' 15-yard line. On the next play Gregory lost a half yard trying to smash through right tackle, and then Friedman dropped back for his game winning Held goal. Bucknell Field Goal Wins Battle, 3 to 2 LYNCHBURG. Va..

Bui Curley's boy. Bob, clawed at him desperately for an Instant, but Thaper's knees came up sharply like the knee action of a high school horse, hitting BUI Curley's boy. Bob, in the stomach, and down he went in the mud. - . Leaves Human Trail Then Thayer tore across the 37 yards of swamp that stretched between him and the goal for the touchdown, the Chlcagoana spattered out along the muddy trails far behind him. Al Kreus, the short, squat 190 pounder of the Penn back field, kicked the goal. Thereafter, the Pennsylvanians fought from behind that wall of vantage. Three times during the afternoon the light cavalry of the Chi cago backfield swept through the mud in daring sorties to the 15-yard . territory of the Penn defense. Then once, twice, three times, something went wrong with the Chicago attack. Three Chicago forward passes, a desperate form of assault Jrom close up, fell behind the Penn goal lines, as futile as spent bullets. In the last half of the game, the Chicago ends charged wildly, but it was too late. They had been holding back too long. 55,000 See Gam A chilling rain fell throughout the game,, soaking the field and the players and the 55,000 spectators that had been shivering in the stands: Toward the close, Tom Thorp, the referee, whose white golf apparel was a smear of mud, was halting the game at Intervals, that the players might wipe their hands and the ball be dried out. The squat Al Kreuz was resorting to the strategy of punting frequently In the second hall' of the game, hoping for Chicago fumbles, lifting the ball high, while five Penn men charged down the field under It. . - What you might call the "breaks" in the luck, due to the slippery ball, were about even on the afternoon. They both did pleDty of fumbling. It was a sloppy game, overhead" and underfoot. Penn Opens With Drive As Penn' kicked off to Marks, the Chicago- sympathizers let fly quite a vocal volley. The Chicago- -players wear dull looking footb'.ill gear. nd th dullness was emphasized by the drab afternoon. They blended into the gray field. The numbers on their backs stood out white and distinct until a couple of scrimmages. Then the Chi cugo and Penn players were one in muck. Marks ran the ball back ten yards, but presently Chicago had to kick, and then Rogers, slashing hack " ot Penn, began ripping through the Chicago line. Tht ball -. was -.ftnon a blnck, lumpy looking r-biect. It responded logglly to the booting of the rival kickers. lifting slowly and lazily in air liKe a big. fat. black crow. The players found the footing very difficult, slip ping and sliding on the swampy ground. Penn worked the ball across the mud to Chicago's twenty-five yard line by a series of line smashes, and short end runs by Rogers and Kreur. Then Krcuz tried a goal from placement from that pojnt. The ball hit ore of the gonl pests and bounced nway. That Winning Pass From almost midficld. Rogers shot a forward rmss to Thayer, and Thay r whirled and stormed n cross thirty-five yards of muddy- Chicago terri tory to a touchdown. Kreus kicked coal. Bill Curley's boy. Bob, was replaced at quarter by Grain at the beginnisn; of the second period, and as Bob trotted to the side line, mud from head to foot, the your.g man in the brown and white coat invoked a most enthusiattic reception for him Bob Curley's boy. Bob. had played well Chicago's fortunes suddenly "shifted in a manner. "Five yards" McCarty began Picking holes off left tackle. and made two smashing gains, then Kernwein shot a long forword pass to Uraln that netted 20 yards, put ting the ball on Penn s 18-yard line A couole of plunges at center added two yards, and Kernwein tried two forward .passes, but no one was at the other end to take them and Chi- caeo lost the ball on downs Between each plfiy. the Chicago ana would withdraw from the line of scrimmage nd go into a huddle conference. They apparently earnestly debated every move. Stuck to Passss . Kernwein was by no means dis couraged bv his previous poor fall ures. He demonstrated himself to be a most persevering young man. Whn Chicaeo regained the hair. which was after Penn had- futilely tried to gain against the Chicago line, he tried still another pass in midf ield. which failed, the ba'l going to Penn. A strange looking object that Kpomcd anitc nnimate was identified in tiic nuidrtv mass of humanity about this time as Tom Thorp, h r?f-rec who had come on the field in 8 uniform of pristine v hup. He was in there strvsgltng with the boys, as soiled as the next man. Penn gained a couple of yards on line plunges, then was penalized for holcing. nnd Krues punted t Grain who fumbled the ball on Chicacro'n fortv-tlirfe vjrfl line.

Hen derson finally smashing through an j stopping - him- -Krue? optimistically tried a goal from placement from tho 44-yKrd line, but the ball carried a short dislance nnd then fell "o-jgily to the ground. That gave Chicago the bnll and "Five Yards" McCnrtv ni'-kcd vn hts !lottd yarrlas-e off right tackle. Kerwein punted - to Finn's 4S-vnr'. whore- Penn corr.lled the hall after two distinct fumbles.

The ends had been playin; a waiting game, and were too eIow. The. redot-biable "Five Yards'" McCarty was the only Chlcagoan who impressed the folks as making the best of his natural resources. The forward jiasses were left uncovered, and there were many other minor faults as seen by the east erners. They liked Bill curley a boy, i Bob, for the manner in , which ho prevented a Penn touchdown early ir. i the game. The Chicago - iin was playing too high against the low, straight on-charge of Penn, and in general the easterners were not Im pressed by old man btagg's football. They agreed, however, that the younK man leading the Chicago cheering wns entitled to special mention.. - Penn kicked off, and after three plays with Abbott and Timmie carrying the ball, Kernwein punted, the ball hitting the ground and rolling to Penn's five yard line. ' Kruez dropped back behind the goal line and punted to Abbott, who was downeo in midfield. Marks took a smash at the line, gained three yards, and ' immie gained three, the Jhicagoans went Into their usual huddle ani." Kerwein kicked, the hi 11 going to Penn on their 20-yard lHe. Penn Fumbles Leith plowed into center and fumb led, the ball going back to Chicago on Penn's own 21-yard line. Timme promptly made six yards, then Timme made first down on Perm's 7-yard line, and the young Chicago cheer leader was truly agog. Marks hit right tackle, but made no gain. The Penn line was holding fast. Kernwein tried a forward pass. which grounded. Timme tried an other smash, but was stopped. Kern wein, the undiscouraged, tried an other forward pass, that bounced fu tilely behind the Penn goal line and Penn got the . ball on downs. Kruez punted to Abbott and Chi cago again had the ball in midfield, with many yards of -muddy urounu between it and the Penn goal. Ab bott made four yards and was flat tened out on the play. Tom Thorp went to the Chicago side line and got a towel, and wiped Abbott's face. H. Kernwein punted out of bounds on Penn'3 18-yard line. Kreuz punt ed to Penn s -. 24-yard line, his kick being almost blocked by a plunging Chicagoan. Abbott fumbled the ball nnd Penn recovered on the 34-yaru line. Another Ft mble Houglaa made eight yards and Kruez dropped back and punted. Tbt biill hit the ground and Abbott tool; the bnll on the first bounce as Sinner crashed throvgh. The ball plumped out of Abbott's bands and fc-inger fell on it Chicago's 15-yard lime. Douglass three yards off left tackle. Jjeilh smashed through Ui: line putting the ball on Chicago's nine yard line.
