DAILY NEWS, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1925 RED GRANGE SCORES ONE POINT 44 Bears Beat Washington bv 19-0; Harold Stopped By WESTBROOK PEGLER. Washingtn. D. C. Dec. 8. Red Grange played football against a tattered detachment of hard guys from the slums i of football today, and at times the noted iceman looked like! a male milliner in a tattle royal. Red scored just one point! in the accumulation of a 19 to 0. score over a scrub team ;' known as the Washington All-Stars, and that point was ex-! ecuted by the unglamorous device of a drop kick from the depth of a well defended backfield after Frank Hanny, his left end, had snatched an unfriendly forward pass and scoote'd 22 yards along the side line for the Bears' second touchdown, j Later in the same auarter. the lourtn, John Bryan Bears 19 P03 Kmr L.E .t .....L.T.. r'ie. kenauna .... .

This time, though Red was more to be pitied than razzed f r the pass from center was a bounder that culled for the talents of a shortstop. Feaven's Sake!

PLAN BIG DINNER FOR JIM FARLEY More than a thousand representative men from every walk of metropolitan life will gather at the Hotel Com modore Sunday night, Jan. 3, to attend a testimonial dinner to James A.

Furthermore, it was nted that n least one occasion whe n some heavy traffic was bound his way aroar.d the Bears' left end. Red hung back out of the play, while the rest of the backs bore over in his direction to make the tackle. How Rude. They keep such close account of Red's work now that he i getting money for it that the statiticans were able to say when it was all ver that he made just one tackle in the entire entertainment and only had to bump his man out of bounds in that case. Red may have felt that the occasion didn't deserve a master piece, for there were thousands of extra seats in the stadium where Walter Johnson often har.srs his quarrelsome, , bare Red McKee legged under Metropolitan Association, A. A. U. auspices. Nearly three hundred members of local clubs have put their names down as starters in the several events, which will include sprint and distance runs from 1-50 yards to one and a half miles. Walter Johnson Barney pulled better than Grange; Mr. McKee was there. party named Lynch, who used to piay with Catholic university, made -tissue paper of the Bears' line, a'most throughout game and if they had had the benefit of 15 minutes' practice together and at least one entire football suit between them, they must have smudged the virgin escutcheon of Red Grange, the professional. What a Shock. The Bears's first touchdown was executed in the third quarter by Ed Sturneman, one of the many public frc-m the rafters and whole ! regulars of the team who had gangs of the attendance which will been held out in the early stages be generously seated as 10.000 had in the expectation that the subs come over the high outfield walls, J and Red Grange could race without transacting the customary throusrh the ragged rabble by business formalities at the box of- themselves. ffice.

Twenty of the strongest teams in the country will participate in the games. The New York A. C. has entered five teams in the high and low goal games. NURMI PLANNING ANOTHER ATTACK ON FATHER TIME A Hard Life, Probably the wear and tear of kis sudden and intensive professional career and the straiu of trying to be a superman all the time have worn down Red's energy. This was his third game since last Saturday and furthermore, in each game there have been certain members of the opposition who felt sure that the great Grange would bust if they threw him down hard enough. j In the fourth quarter of this j no standing in league football. Later in the game Ed and a fellow named Nick Busch, who had been playing a very rough left guard for Washington, got into a fist fight and were given what is known as The Heave. Johnny Mohardt and Bryan will have to be identified as the grizzly bears of this piece and Red Grange as the aught but formidable Teddy Kear. Boston tomorrow after a ten-hour leap on the railroad. . Paavo Nurmi, the Phanton Finn, who raised ructions with Father Time in athletic circles here last winter, will not invade America during the coming indoor season. This was the info which leaked out at Amateur Athletic Union headquarter s last night following the receipt of a letter here from the non-comm u n i-cative footrac- Paavo Nurmi ing phenom. It is Nurmi's intention to rest up until well into next summer. He then will begin a training campaign which will fit him for a series of doings on European tracks, after which he"U make ready for another visit here in the winter of 1926-27 during which he hopes to put on ice a few distance records which he didn't get an opportunity to smother during his wonderful campaign last winter. Harold, How Could You? -By PAUL GALLICO- Here it is Wednesday already, and I ought to be worrying about Der Paulie and his French Canadian friend from Bridgeport, who are giving a soiree on 8th ave. Friday night, but all I can do is lose myself in admiration of the delightful frankness that attended some of the weird transactions a he Hoel Asor las Monday afernoon, where Harold Grange and a group of subsantial citizens in the advertising game did a little business. Among the fees which found their way into Harold's pockets was a trivial plaster for a thousand dollars, it was reported, for permitting his name to be connected with the exploitation of a cigarette, although Grange has never used tobacco in any form. That there was anything wrong a Shut this probably never entered the heads of Master Grange, his managers, or the advertising concern. As a matter of fact, according to modern standards where business faking in any form is permissible as long as no lives are lost through it, it was a highly creditable coup. How our Harold managed to couple this business with his radio expression of spiritual strength and uplift gained through his participation in football, however, will always remain a mystery to me. Pocketing large sums of money for indorsing dolls, sweaters, shoes and other articles about which he knows nothing can hardly be said to be spiritually uplifting. , Now this appears to be a nasty public tirade against a dazzled, bewildered youth, who half unbelieving is stumbling through one of Ahose golden dreams we all have at one time or another, dreams in which we come upon cashes of doubloons and diamonds and yellow backs, and stuff our pockets full to bursting. Possibly Grange is not to blame. But certainly his turning professional has laid him open to that delightful slogan of the fight clan: "Get the dough honestly' if you can, but get the dough." The tighf of the redhead thundering down the striped field, leaving a wake of fallen, chagrined bodies, is thrilling. It is worth any amount of money that people are willing to give to see it. The view of Grange sitting in a ballroom so as to be able to accommodate all of those desiring to trade cash for his name rand with his manager, whom the cynical sport writers have named Cash-and-Cmrry Pyle, palling in money, hand over first and giving in return not one whit honest effort, to me is disgusting. I am so heartily sick of our national hysteria for over-publicizing and worshiping of athletes, the great American flair for idolizing, petting, pampering and showering with unearned wealth some goof who can hit a baseball, or a solar plexus, or a litre, with its wake of sharp dealing, forced publicity and final dissolution of the idol into a national parasite, that it is probably just as well that this column has a bottom. ' ' Grange on the gridiron when he is giving money's worth is a personage. But Grange pocketing dough for testimonials, or 'for acting in the movies, is no superman to me. Aw, heck, let's talk about Der Paulie and Mons. Jacques. It's almost too bad those boys have to go and fight. As far as can be determined, they appear to be the only two young men in the glove game who don't care whom they fight, or when or where or for how much. . Ill SHOW DOT DBtANCe GO O0T I'M no Ft ewes. Act PAULIE. MSTIGU& Delaney, you will remember, was the young man to step forward a year ago when Der Paulie was just bgeinning to cave in ribs. Delaney was quite agreeable to fight Der Paulie, or a dozen of them. Then there was a young colored chap by the name of Tiger Flowers, over whom a number of sport writers, including your uncla Gallico, went sort of daffy. The Tiger-mussed up Johnny Wilson something fierce in Madison Square Garden, and from then on everybody started giving Mr. Flowers the excuse me. Once more Delaney volunteered his services. Whether or no he was advised of something that us wise guys didn't know that the Tigah had a most fragile jaw construction, I do not know, but, anyhow, he plucked them there Flowers, and then did it again when certain parties were not convinced. Delaneys whole attitude has been refreshingly different from that of our best pugs, who prefer to meet only worn out veterans or opponents who are known to have difficulty cracking eggs with their punches. As for Der Paulie, I've kidded him and razzed him, but b'gosh, he's my favorite pugilist. I'm almost convinced that he'll fight any one, and not ask a fortune for it. This summer, after taking the title from Mike McTigue. the first time with one of the cleverest boxers in the game, and the second with a knockout puncher pounds heavier. came from his headquarters. He went on training, and when they found Slattery for him to fight, knocked him dead. When they were trying to find an opponent for Paul this summer when Delaney got himself his septic poisoning, not one squeal 05iE OR THE OTHER WILL BE PRETTY EAR KI IM I) FRIO IV AD THAT'S TOO BAD.
