PAGE SIX BULL HENRY TO THE MAT AFTER A LONG SESSION Burlington Heavy Throws Darling of lola in Chacoma Card It took a Long time to get Mr. Bull Henry to rest his shoulders on the mat but a gentleman with a 15-po\md advantage turned the trick in a show put on In M. W. A. hall last night by Wayne, Bull, Art, and Eggs, once In a while addressed by the fans'as Long, Henry, Jeffries, - and Melton. The first grappler in the list, Wayne Long of Burlington, pinned the heretofore unthrown Mr. Henry .for a pair of falls after the Bull had taken Long, for an airplane ride for the first throw. Messrs. Art Jeffries and Eggs Melton wrestled for a one-hour period for the first match, each accepting a fall; Melton won the first after 43 minutes with an airplane spin. Jeffries, the St. l«uis, Mis- .^ouri mule, did an about face and butted Melton around a la Billy Goat before slamming him to the canvass to annex the second fall in 7 miriutp.-v Ten more minutes of play failed to produce a decision. Long Wins Audience. Wayne Long, who appeared to have .sprouted a few more muscles .since his last performance here, impressed the spectators—who were con-slderahle in number—more than ever with, his beautiful and power- ful physic. Mr. Henry was forced to abandon some of his showman tactics in favor of caution and seemed to lose a bit of his' popularity to j Long! The latter had ah edge in _the cheering. The match was characteristic of Long, slow with much of the time spent on the mat. The onlookers gave evidence of enjoyment. It was purely a matter of too much power on Long's side, however, and he decided the match in comparatively short time after Mr, Henry had spinned him at the end of 43 minutes. Wayne came back and sat on Henry's Adam's apple after 8 minutes of the second act. and the third piece ended in much the same manner after 11 minutes. The first match, Jeffries and Melton, surprised the fans' in that the visitor failed to beat the Jolan. Melton was always equal to Jeffries • and at times displayed superiority.

F. B. MURDOCK. 5!^ WILLIAM BRAUCHER iStagg's Successor !TN more than one way Clark Shaughnesay, recently brought from Loyola of the South to become Amos Alonzo Stagg's successor at , the University of Chicago, Is step:ping into a tough assignment. - Chicago for some years past has not had very good football teams. But this was not Mr. Stagg's fault. Every {all at football time a mere .handful of. young men from here and there would turn out for football. The reason was that the scholastic and entrance requirements at the Midway sent good blacksmiths elsewhere. The University of Chicago gradually got the reputation of being a place where all t^he football players wore glasses and studied Pliny li the <ocker room between halves, . • • • About the Old Cr'ads CHAUGHNESSY first faces the *^ problem of material. Then, there are the ."C" men, too—the old Kruds. Athletic Director T. N. Met- oalf was a 'bit brutal to 'the "C" - men in his choipe of Shaughnessy forithe Job.;They held a.meeting to discuss the matter of selecting a )iew coach', Mr. Metcalf was sorry he could not be there. They called him by telephone. He assured them simply that the coach already had been selected. No mpleting of old grads could do anytl)lng about It. . What was his name, j Oh, that would be announced in due time. An bour after the meeting adjourned, the University of Chicago announced that Shaughnessy had been named. The old grads naturally were chagrined. And chagrin -in an old grad quickly turns to high dudgeon. The "C" men will be waiting to receive Shaughnessy first with rnqulsitlVe anxiety, then with searching analysis. Shaugh- _nes.sy will be taken apart to see what makes him tick. But they win find Shaughnessy prepared \to meet them. He bap- pen.<i to be a fellow with ideas "which sounded funny bqtor^Jte put them into practice, but they-have been Ideas that worked. • » • . Says It With Music M R.' SHAUGHNESSY will bring tho "sonata shift" to the Midway, among other things. "My theory," Shaughnessy said in a recent interview, "is that light,^ fast players who have brains and use them are better than tons of beef. With split-second timing in perfect rhythm, you can use deception combined with speed which advances the ball fartiier and faster than all the beet can crash It. After all, a light, fabt player can tackle, tangle up and throw the biggest beef that ever donned a football suit." When Shaughnessy was a^ little boy, he was given piano lessons. He lived at Gladstone, Minn., some seven miles, over the hIlls-\from St. Paul. At ,the age of six. Master Shaughnessy was schooled In such piano stuff as Mozart's Sonata In C Major. He had the technique and timing then, beliig a' concert performer . when he was 10 years old. He toolc that timing into football! • • • • Players Chant AT Loyola he taught his revised versions of Minnesota shift plays, and the players had to count, "one-two-three-four" and so on, just as if they were taking a music-lesson. He hasn't Introduced tho metronome on the practice field, but gets the same effect of rhythm and timing. It may sound a bit strange, but Shaughnessy has- gone on year after year winning football games that way, beating big fellows with little lads who could keep up the tempo. You may get a wrong impression of Shaughnessy from thisidea. He is practical and vigorous. He won football immortality at the University of Minnesota by being named All-Western for all positions on the team. He played the lin6. backfield or piano with e^al abiUtjriu Mrs. J. H.
