TUESDAY EVENING. DECEMBER 26, 1922. 15 WALTER CAMP PICKS ALL - AMERICA STARS - LOCAL STARS WIN - LYKENS LANDS TITLE HAimiSBUIUStJiTELEGRAPn COLLEGE STARS BATTLE ON ICE Wb EasyWin Easy Viutory With Beck and Comfort Out of Lineup Ha.rrlsburg'fl second arrrrual Chris t - maa Day grid game was run oft In n ntvla yesterday In Island Park, and although the wonder boy Carl Beck did not get m tne game, tne fans who attended were riven a real holiday treat. Comfort, ' another star, who hails from Carnegie Tech. was also minus when the lineup was announced. Books, of Dickin - ieon College, and Frock, of Lebanon Valley, filled in the vacant places. The game was played before a large holiday crowd upon a field which was a veritable skating rink, and the long runs and exhibitions of open - fleld running, which the crowd had expected from the rival stars, was reduced to a minimum. Forward passing as a substitute furnished ' many thrills. Rabbit Rote heaved the ball for Harrlsburg and Kersel for the Lancaster team. Books, left halfback of Dickinson College, scored in the opening quarter for Harrisburg. The next tally was registered late in the second quarter, when Vic Emanuel, right end from Gettysburg, shot a forward over the line to Rote. The extra point was made through aflukie when the ball went low, bounced oft a lineman's head and lit upon the top of the bar. The third touchdown came in the last period of play. This quarter was the most exciting of the game, featured by a 60 - yard run by Kersel, many fumbles and forwards, and the last touchdown, made by Wilsbach. on a line plunge. The Harris - burg team completely outplayed Its opponents throughout the whole game. Harrlsburg made 10 first downs, while Lancaster was unable to make any. Kersel and Smith were the mainstays of the Lancaster team, while Rote, Wilsbach, Books and Emanuel played the stellar roles for the Harrlsburg eleven. Summary and line - up: Harrisburg Lancaster V.

COLLEGE BOYS LOSE IN CAGE CONTEST; KILLINGER BIG STAR Harrisburg's Big Five last night won over local College Stars, score 27 to 20. It was a nip and tuck game and enjoyed by a large holiday crowd. The College boys played a wonderful game.. Killinger was the big star.' Of his team's 27 points, he was responsible for 12 of them. His work on the defense was also brilliant. Kline shared honors with Killinger with one double - decker and five goals from the free - toss nark out of eight attempts. Snaps Emanuel and Dayhoff were the big offensive men for the losers. The Gettysburg College boy scored four times from the field and twice from the four mark. Dayhoff dropped two through the hoop from the field, and one from the foul mark.

TECH FIVE"STARTS AGAINST ALUMNI IN FIRST CAGE BATTLE Harrisburg Tech's veteran quintet will open Its season next Friday evening in Chestnut Street Auditorium with the Alumni as the opponents. Last year the Walnut streetera had a high class team but to say that this year's five Is even better is not stretching the truth. McLinn and Tuckey, veteran forwards, have practically clinched their berths this year while at center Wilsbach and Hartman have been wiowlng up good. Ellis will probably take care of the guard positions and Haps Frank, the other defensive post. Coach Ike McCord will select the team that he is going to start against the alma mater boys this afternoon, and this combination will work together this week as a final preparation for the initial contest. A dance program has been arranged as a concluding' feature of the eve ning. The game will start at the usual time at 8.15 o clock. SAILOR FREEDM AN IS WINNER OVER BARRETT Philadelphia, Dee. 26.

Both scores were made near the close of quarters. It was a great football game through and through both teams having brilliant spurts. (Lykens outplayed the local boys in the final quarter. A big holiday crowd witnessed the contest, many Harrisburg rooters being in evi dence. Lykens had the best of the argu ment in weight. The first touchdown came 10 seconds before the end of the first half. After the teams had struggled back and forth through the slush and mud for two 16 - mlnute quarters, with the heavier team gradually advancing on every exchange of the pigskin, Cooper car ried the ball across the goal. The second touchdown came at an equally dramatic moment. J. Hoffman plunged across the line with only a half minute to go before the end of the game. Neither extra point was scored. Lykens won the county champion? ship with the better team. The Capital City eleven played a des perately hard game, but Lykens played just as hard, and had the advantage in weight.

LOCAL BOYS MAY GET CHANCE TO MEET CHAMPION LYNCH With a guarantee that the winner will positively get a chance with Joe Lynch, bantamweight champion of the world, Peter Husic the Steel - ton flash, and Kid Julian, the south ern bantam weight champion, are not letting the holidays interfere with their training for the twelve - round battle Monday afternoon, Eddie Meade, who handles January 2. Lynch, has written that Lynch has several unfinished jobs in the mid - dlewest which he must fill and after that Meade and his champion will return east and Barrett can depend upon the champion meeting Julian or Husic in this city during the month of February. While great interest is being shown in this battle, the eight - round semiwlndup between Babbit Rep - man, Husic'a stablemate, and Sammy Novia, of York, is also coming in for its share of gossip. Novia recently lost the popular decision to Huslc in a twelve - round bout, and previous to this, the Yorker was given a popular decision over Repman in the same ring. After the Husic fight Novia said the twelve - round limit was too much for him, but eight is his speciality. George Kerns, the local lightweight, who meets Kid Buckey, a protege of Frankle McGulre's, in the opening six - round bout, has started training with the Barrett stable of boxers. An added attraction will be the appearance of Matysek, the world's champion strong man. Matysek la not only a strong man but claims he can throw any man in the world, and in proof of his belief he has posted the sum of J 5,. 000 with Jack Curley. the New York wrestling promoter, to bind a macth with Strangler Ed. Lewis, the present world's champion. In his local appearance Matysek, who weighs 174 pounds, offers the sum of $60 to any man that can duplicate his feats or lining. .

Owen, Harvard M. John Thomas, Chicago ...... Barron, Georgia Tech .. Reprinted by permission' of Collier's, Every first - class football team, a winner, has. lust as does a man, a certain marked individuality of its own. The great characteristics of this Ail - American team, as it stands, above, are: , 1. Brains by which I mean that every man on it has proved himself in contests this year not only able to play his own position but to diag nose situations ana to act unaer emergencies. ' Z. Power the actual inrust vi this team, line and backs, would be so powerful as to steadily wear down any defense tnat was presented to them, and by sheer force drive the opponents into suomis - eicn. . . 0. Spirit a fiery, dashing, over whelming confidence that makes everything go. Each man of the eleven has this kind of spirit developed to the highest degree and each man has demonstrated it on the field. Now as to the particular breadth of ability of the team as thus put together, we have ' these features: Practically every man in the back field is a threat, not of one kind of attack, but of three, whilo in the line we have, ends who can block tackles: tackles who can get the jump on their guards and then clean up the secondary; guaras who can open holes, can take part in further interference, and a center accurate and steady in his passing, an still instantly useful after his pass is made. We have ends spe - ciallv adeDt in taking a forward pass without checking their stride, taking it in - almost any angle and instantly sensing the position of the opponents and dodging or getting away. AH tour ui mo uh.r - u5 men can throw the pass or go through and receive it, and they are strong enough on their feet not to be bumped or unsteaaieu m ui part of the play. A Great ueiensive Turning now to the defense, the r,Au run rnver any kicks and pre vent their run - back. The backs are kickers, and one oi mem uw ui th nnnntrv to place the punt, according to conditions. Hence, defensively, this team is able to transfer the play for the full distance of the kick and hold the opponents at the spot.' No one is likely to get a run - back on these men; and bear in mind that this run - back was the deciding factor in the Harvard - Yale and Army - Navy games this year as well as the Harvard - Yale game in 1921, When it comes to the scrimmage, it would be indeed a powerful offense which should penetrate mo mifirtin of this line, and our tackles have throughout the season cut a wide swath In preventing piaya coming over their positions, while our ends have both been particularly noted for driving plays in tnmnrii thA tackles and guaras, as well as sifting through the interfer ence and getting the runner li ne tried to come to the outside. As to the forward - passing game, our linemen are adepts in hurrying the passer and all our back - field men have made reputations as in - tementers of passes, so that the side throwing them, instead of reap ing gains, has in a good many cases not nniv lost the ball, but lost con siderable yardage at the same time. Finally, every player on mis team has been through grief, and proved himself adaptable to conditions, especially in tight pinches, More than half of them have never known de feat this season, and the others with only a single exception in bitterly fouerht - out contests where the mar gin was small and the issue in doubt And in ail tnese cases uw jiaxuuu - lar players we have selected stood out both in victory and defeat. Taylor, of the Navy, shone all through the season, but particularly in the Penn - State and Army games. His catching of passes is uncanny, and his driving in of plays sent in his direction is strikingly good. He is remarkably fast down the field, cannot be checked, and slows down nicely to meet his man. He has more power than one would suppose, is quite competent to handle the tackle, and, in addition, makes a lot of trouble for the secondary defense. Always on the move, he is an extremely difficult man for the interference to clean out of the pathway, and even when reached he is hard to put out. Muller, of California, is the most deft man in the country in the art of sifting through interference and finding , the man with the ball. Although he begins by forcing the play to turn in, owing to his weight and power, he is not content with that, bat. if he sees his chance, shoots through the protectors and snaps his man. Not only is he one of the greatest forward passers of the country, but he is also a star receiver. His method of getting away with a jump upon receiving the forward pass shows the speed and dexterity of a back - field man. Treat, of Princeton, is of that rangy, powerful type essential in the modern game. But he is also particularly strong in diagnosing the play quicaiy ana in never Doing drawn too far out of position. For a strong man. he is extremely fast down the field and has plenty of endurance. His heady play in the Harvard game was the psychological factor for Princeton, and his hard charging Is of the type taught by Cavanangh. It was also his work that counted the most in the few plays which enabled Princeton to get np to the goal in both the Harvard and Yale games. . Thurman. of Pennsylvania, like neat. Is fast and powerful, with an intense fighting spirit developed to the extreme by the fact that he has had to be the bulwark of an eccentric line and stand up against heavy pounding. - On the attack he has been obliged to do a great deal of the work himself in preparing the way for his back field. But one feature or tne Pennsylvania Bleven Second EHevea The National Weekly. has been of especial advantage to him in making him such a strong all - around man; and that is that his team has been forced by circumstances into using a variety of play, ranging from the ordinary and regular to the spectacular and unexpected. This is probably one reason why Thurman is so adaptable to conditions. His defensive work was the great factor in holding .down the Cornell scoring machine. The Back Field Has Punch Schwab, of Lafayette, was, as of old, the same exceptional combination of power and speed. He is a guard who is' never anchored, and one of the cleverest linemen in the country in drawing his opponents out of position and in deceiving them as to the point of attack. His work, both offensively and defensively, has been Lafayette's greatest asset in the last two years. Hubbard, of Harvard, was the outstanding man on the Harvard line this year, .and he is patterned somewhat after Schwab, of Lafayette, but has not had as great experience. He has a strong charge, with his feet well under him, a keen eye when he gets set, and he is particularly clever on the offense In working with his center and tackle in making openings. He stopped up decisively the plays which came at or near his position in all his games, and was of the old Pennock type, which Harvard and her opponents remember so well. Garbisch, of West Point, is an ideal center in a field of good men, and the added asset of his drop - kicking is the factor In his finally supplanting all others; that marvelous forty - flve - yard kick, partly across the wind and at a difficult angle in the Navy game, made the three points that eventually, as things turned out, settled at the Army - Navy contest. His passing is regular and can be easily handled. and he has a good jump, after and not wmie makine his oass. He has his head up quickly on defense and diagnoses plays rapidly and surely. incite, oi iowa. the great Plung ing back and end runner, was a star on attack and defense, and went to the top of his triumph when he piloted his team from quarterback. His direction of the play in the Ohio state game was remarkable, and, in addition, in twenty - two running attempts he made an average gain of five yards in each attempt. Kaw, of Cornell, needs little in troduction after his work of the last two years. To those who have not seen him play, however, it should be said that he is the greatest all - around back - field man in the country. A combination of ability to plunge, run slant plays, cut in, circle an end, kick or forward - pass would be enough, but, in addition, his defensive work is of the very highest and his ability to intercept forward passes is uncanny. He in tercepted four in the Dartmouth game and batted down two more. Kipke, of Michigan I can hardly say too much for this sterling per former. He Is of a more wiry type than my other backs, and requires a bit more care in handling, but he makes up for this in his exceptional speed and doging qualities. His sidestepping is like that of Killinger, last years Penn State star. - He is an ' excellent kicker and the best placer of punts in the country. He is also a particularly dangerous interceptor of forward passes, and liable to net a touchdown from any one of these. John Thomas, of Chicago, has that rare art of carrying through his charge with his feet still under him, ready for a further drive. When he strikes he strikes hard, but he has still a later thrust of power so that the ordinary check in a line does not stop his forward progress. He would be the most dashing of the three in this All - America back field. His work shone in other games, but it was particularly brilliant in the Princeton game. It is safe to say that he did far more against the Princeton line in effective scoring than did any backs of the East who met the Tigers. Other Bright Stars I am sorry that space forbids my going into as full details as to the qualifications of the second team. ' - Kirk, of Michigan, is a great end and student of the game. He can play halfback if necessary. He has brains and initiative, and Is always at work. His speed and tackling ability are aign. Bomar, of Vanderbilt, is only shaded a little by two other ends largely through the experience gained by his rivals against stronger opposition. lie weighs 200 pounds, is tremendously fast, and a, hardy. defensive player. On attack he is able to pick the forward pass oat or the air on the lull run. and. run nlng with a high - knee action quite iiae uuu oi tne reaouDiaoie Ted Coy. if he cannot get by his man. runs him down and goes on over him. still on his feet. Waldorf, of Syracuse. Is an ag gressive tackle of the old - style charge, but always with his feet under him and in control. He - has come fast almost as fast as any one on the gridiron, and has been tne mainstay or tne Svracuu lino Neidlinger of Dartmouth has been the star of the Greea Una. vhttku - in adversity or soooesa He Is extreme ly active, , gTeat ngnter. - fast down neia. ana ciever bib is work on an' opposing guara er tackle on of fense. Cross of Tale was a bulwark of the Yale line, and extraoidinaril taat an hie feet for such a heavy "nr - - r (xl( pounds.) In the Priaeetea game this was shewn on several oeoaslons. as it was also ia the Harvard eon - test. Nothing can some through him. and he opeas holes powerraUy and cleverly.

He is a particularly active and mobile man, Passes the ball well, and is especially strong - on his defensive work. In fact, many believe he will be a second Bob Peok. Smythe, of West Point is a brilliant perrormer, a good Judge of players, Mid a surprisingly elusive runner, He lacks the power of Locke and sometimes tends to get in motion before making sure of the ball, and takes some big chances in running back across the field But it may be said jn Justification that in his big game he got away with it" and brought nis team put of a desperate hole. Owen of Harvard Is a big, burly, raw mam, exceedingly hard to stop when once under headway. He is not quite as good in getting; his openings from scrimmage as Kaw and Kipke, or In forcing through as John Thomas, as was shown by a oomparl - son of the Prinoeton - Harvard and iTinceton - Chlcago games. But he is probably the most dangerous of all if he gets under headway, either on the receiving end of a forward pass. t, - 5,,ln the Yal "ine i the run - back from a punt.

One element of success for a football team lies In their own ability to assimilate the football instinct and knowledge which leads to self - reliance and Independence of thought in a critical - and unexpected event. A team must be trained to think, of football situations with the same quickness and accuracy as will be required In life, and each man must be taught to make his decision at a critical moment, without the fatal hesitating thought that he has not been taught to meet that special crisis. And this Ail - American Football Team has been selected with this fact in mind. NATIONAL LAWN TENNISCHAMPS Winners of national championship tournaments for the year 1923 follow. . - Oatdoors . .

FOSTER By Special Leatei Wirt to the Barriiturg Telegraph. Copyright. New York, Dec. 26. The first object of the new players union 1 s iot to be the forc - l n g o f additional pay. The players Iwish represen - jtatlon in the gov - o r n m e n t game. That has been their cry for years although there never has been a j. it. u ovvuh concerted enort to obtain it since the days of Dave Fulti. ' . , There is no doubt the players lack confidence In the government of the game as it is handled to - day. They hold that they are at the mercy of an arbitrary authority which has assumed control of them since they signed their first contract.
