PAGE ELEVEN Coert Stars Comiog Mere; Hill Center Opens Campaign THE EVENING NEWS, HARRISBURG, PENNA., MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1925 Leading HARMONY QUINT ATTRACTION IN CAGE SATURDAY If the manager of a young and ambitious leather pusher sauntered gaily forth and signed for matchea with the division,',? crack performers, the fistic brethren would point to him with scornful fingers and remark that an inspection of said manager's thinking apparatus was in order and likewise important. In basketball, however, the mana gers do something the fight manager would not even comtemplate they schedule the hardest opposition and let their charges make the best of the proposition. Which brings us down, or up, to the Harrisburg Professionals, who have engaged in three stirring earnes with the leading quintets of Brooklyn, Washington and Baltimore and are heading into more difficult games without taking the regulation sock at a pushover. The Harmony Club, of Philadelphia, composed of former tastern League stars and one of the best now doing business in the . Quaker City, will supply the opposi- tion for the Professionals Saturday : night in Chestnut street Aeditorium .' and a good time is expected by all. Bill Mehring and Eddio Wallower, l manager and captain of the local com- bine, journeyed to Washington over : the week-end for the ostensible purpose of engaging the New York ' Celtics and any other speedy quintet for future games, and although no papers were signed, several tentative games were agreed upon. The New York Celtics, generally rated as national champions and em- ploying sch outstanding performers at Nat Holman, Benny Boardman and Johnny Beckman among others, probably will come here for a battle before many weeks roll around. The Celtics were In Washington playing the Palace Club, the same team that defeated the Professionals here on November 21, and Mehring went into conference with Manager Fleurie. Although the local schedule for the next several weeks is completed, the Celtics will come here at the first opportunity. The Celtics won a comparatively easy victory over the Palace Club, 2 to 15, with Holman and his mates tossing In spectacular fashion.- Holman, who hag few if any superiors at the court game, has written and played basketball for years. His articles on the game, which contain constructive lessons on technique, have helped hundreds of youngsters become proficient. PRESSURE USED ON GUARD PLAYS By HERBERT REED NEW YORK, Nov. SO. The last two football games in the East put a deal of emphasis on the guards. Both in the Syracuse-Columbia ga,me and the clash between the Army and the Navy, they were conspicuous, either because of their success or their failure. Pease, the Columbia quarterback, attempted, with all the skill at his command and he has plenty of that to make his ground in the pinches through the gua,rd positions. He had only a slight measure of success, for Syracuse played the guards cloft, which is fatal to that style of attack. In the Army-Navy game, after the gambling with the forward pass had gone on for a time, the soldiers were able to put on the pressure that eventually won the game by throw-Ing Tiny Hewitt over one the guard positions, and occasionally through the center. Hewitt, perhaps less praised by the usual critics than any man who has played football in recent years, was really the kingpin of the Army attack. He was helped materially by the design of the play and by Harding, at quarterback, who was making the little hop shift that let Hewitt go in the opposite direction across the guard. In tho case of Columbia the men of Morningside were unable to pull the guards out of position, and in the case of the Army it proved to be possible. Hewitt was carrying the bajl tighter than he ever jlid at Pittsburgh, and he was not a participant in the general epidemic of fumbling. Most of the time Hewitt ran from the middle position in the backfield lineup before the jump shift, and arrived on the line either as a ball carrier or with a clear-out assignment. In the course of the working out of the Army attack the soldiers ran into one guard, Edwards by name, who seemed to me to be playing just as nice a guard as a man in his position could play. The generalship these days is a difficult thing to guage. It was expected that the sailors would take to the forward pass as early as possible, and one of their pass designs contemplatinf projection in depth, with crossfire, waa a beauty, For a time they had the Army wing back pretty well puziled, for the Navy cut loose two men practically simultaneously In the territory he was supposed to guard before taking up the individual" and later playing the ball. Hamilton, however, took his three points on the fourth down, when opportunity offered, which I think was the correct thing to do. It put tho burden of proof on Harding of the Army, so that when Harding's opportunity turned up he was practically compelled to go eflsr a touchdown. Had he tried a, field goal on his own fourth down he would have had no better than a tie, and he apparently felt that with a well conditioned team, and Hewitt still in the background, he needed a lead. As a matter of fact both quarterbacks were using daring generalship throughout, willing to let the ball go on downs so long as it was fairly deep in opponents' territory. There has been a vast amount of 'argument about the use of that same fourth down deep in opponents' territory, and the ayes seem to have it for this senaon, at least. There has been an ancient saying that "the-best defense is the best offense." I think many of this year's games hare shown that it should be corrected to read that "the best offense it an aggressive defense." The aggressive defense gives one a jumping off place for the attack.

With the moguls slated for a meet ing in York this afternoon, the first conclave since last summer, reports indicate that the speed of the circuit will not be increased and that the same teams again will be united. Scranton and Wilkes-Barre ; are both making extensive plans for the campaign, with the latter removing the purse strings in an effort to obtain a championship team. George Maisel, who took over the managerial berth late last season, has been advised to go into the open field and obtain the talent, a suggestion that Maisel has been following. Harned With Barons The Barons, however, have a healthy reserve list and aV few insertions at strategic alpces should work wonders with the team. Walter Harned is almost a certainty for the pitching staff, while the other members are: Pat Dougherty, Robert Reece, George Mullen, Adrian Lind-iley, Jack Ernst, Bert Bowman, Thomas Connelly, Henry Scheer, Rush A. Yeargin, Charles Gibson, Allen Nangle, Bascom- Stone, William A. Joseph, Robert Davis, Frank Mc-Andrews, Frank J. Roscoe and Joe Navin. Named on Scranton s reserve list are Francis Farrell, Arthur Sullivan, It is difficult to determine the lesser of the two evils, a player piano or a young hopeful fussing through dally practice periods of two hours each. The termination of the college football season is regretted most by the players themselves. They now will be compelled to consider studies as more than a myth. As Ben Franklin might hars fittingly phrased it: "Have 'you bad your iron today?" Although it seems impossible to get Jack Dempsey and Harry Wills together, no one can deny the bout, if held, would have plenty of color. "I've noticed," remarked Mr. O'Gnrgle, just before being forcibly ejected from the office, "that the majority of the .so-called Dumb Doras are smart enough to change husbands every couple years." The huge crowds that gather at six-day bike races offer conclusive proof that the country's hicks are not confined to the hinterland. The Harrisburg lawyers lost a football game to Lancaster barristers and we are the 1001st person to mutter that the least they can do is appeal the decision. MOODY BEST OF MIDDLEWEIGHTS SINCE MITCHELL NEW YORK, Nov. 80. England sends her best middleweight to the mark tonight in Brooklyn. Frank Moody, perhaps the best fighting man of British blood since Charley Mitchell's day, comes to a test with Lew Chester. It is a long deferred meeting. The pair were matched two months ago, but Moody, badly advised as to his rights, walked out on the match to take a more remunerative' shot in Newark. Frank made it worse by reporting sick for the Brooklyn bout. He wasn't sick at all, as the Newark bout of a few nights later proved. For that bit of double dealing Moody got a thirty-day sentence. He has lived that down and must go through with the original engagement. H will enter the ring vowing vengeance, of course, though Chester was an innocent bystander to it all. , Moody can fight. You can forgive anything in him as long as he can use his dukes. Not Bhowy, not nobby as to technique, not a reminder of Jim Corbett because of any ability to hit and get away. He's just a fighter and a good one. Moody could have whipped every one of the so-called good English heavies since Mitchell's time. The latter was hardly more than a welterweight, yet he was able to smack our John L. all over a lot. Moody proved his ability when he plunked Lou Bogash on the whiskers and knocked him out for the first time in long hard fighting career. mis-mi HAWKIN5 HE.S5 .

Frank Elliott, behind the wheel of the green Miller Special that carried Murphy to fame, drove a remarkable non-stop 250-mile race to win the annual November classic at the Culver City Speedway, yesterday afternoon. Elliott broke the world's record for the distance, negotiating it in one hour, fifty-seven minutes and eighteen seconds, an average of 127.87 miles an hour. Only seven of the fifteen who started finished. Harry Hartz was second, Fred Comer third, Bob Mc-Donough fourth, Earl Cooper fifth, Dave Evans sixth, and Benny Hill, driving for the great Tommy Milton, seventh. . Before being forced to stop for gas with less than twenty miles to go, the veteran Earl Cooper, who had led up to this time, established five other world records, making it six for the day, and tied another. It was the most amazing demonstration of speed in history, and was witnessed by 50,000 persons. The beautiful racing day, conducive to the blinding speed, was marred by the first serious board track accident of the year. As the result of it, R. L. "Red" Car-iens, who was driving in his fourth big race, is in a Los Angeles hospital suffering from a fractured skull. Surgeons held little hope for his recovery. NYES EXCEL IN ENHAUT VICTORY Held to one touchdown by Ephrata's stubborn defense, the Enhaut eleven called upon Charlie Nye, former Tech and Dickinson star, to swell its total and Nye obliged with two field goals in the game on Cottage Hill, Steelton, Saturday afternoon. The final tally was 15 to 0 in Enha,ut's favor, thus avenging Ephrata's victory in a recent game. Nye shot his first field goal over the cross arm in the first period, when Ephrata braced and stopped a prolonged Enhaut drive on the twenty-yard line. Nye then went back ten yards and place-kicked for the three points. , The Enhaut touchdown came in the second period, when Dewey Nye scampered thirty yards after breaking into clear territory aronnd end. Charlie Nye's second field goal followed in quick order, his effort this time being made at midfield. In the fourth period Enhaut added two more points by throwing Martin, Ephrata fullback, back of his own goal for a safety. Enhaut Eohrata U vl nrnton Xj. E. .......... Disnl tl g-er I Metka. U T.

Harold (Red) Grange, making his second appear ance on the professional football field in search for a pot of gold, led the Chicabo Bears to a 14 to 13 victory here yesterday afternoon over the Columbus Tigers in a swirling snow storm. The weather didn't cool the ardor of the admirers of the famous ice man from Wheaton, whose name is written in touchdowns at the University of Illinois. Approximately 85,000 of them filled the Chicago Cubs' baseball park and kept warm by cheering when Red did something and when he didn't. Usually, however, Red did something. He performed better against the Columbus Tigers perhaps than he did last Thursday against the Chicago Cardinals. He fumbled oftener, it is true, but that was because of the weather. The hero-worshipers went away satisfied, judging from the reception given Red when he walked off the field after the game. Although he got away for no hundred yard runs and did not transform the game into a track meet as he did back in his college days, Grange showed himself a superior football player by his persistent ability to gain and to prevent gains by his opponents. In tho first ' quarter, Grange banged the line and skirted the ends for short but consistent gains until the ball was on the Tigers' four-yard line when the period ended. When play was resumed the ball was pushed over on the first play and goal was kicked. From then on Grange appeared more in the role of "pitcher than Paavo Nurmi, and late in the second quarter was on the receiving end of a twenty-five-yard pass which put the ball on the Columbus thlrty-eight-yard line. Grange then flipped a beautiful pass for thirty-five yards and a touchdown, and the score stood 14 to 0. After this play Grange received the kickoff and returned the ball thirty-six yard3, his longest run. It was a beautiful dash and gave the crowd the thrill it come for. A few minutes later he went around right end for a run of thirty yards but fumbled and the Tigers recovered. Except for a few more short but spectacular runs Grange was through. He was taken out of the game at the half and did not return until the fourth quarter, despite the continual vociferous howl "Wo want Grange I" that emanated from the grandstands and the bleachers. Britton, Illinois Star, loins Chicago Eleven CHICAGO, Nov. 80. Earl Britton, who played fullback with the University of Illinois football team during the season just closed, has signed to play with the Professionals and soon wifl be running Interference for his old teammate, Harold (Red) Grange. Britton signed with the Chicago Bears yesterday, the managers of the team announced. It was Britton's interference and kicking that caused Grange's rise in the football world in the opinion of many students of the game. The signing of Britton brings the number of University of Illinois players on the Bear squad to eight. Tampa Organizes Team For Grange Invasion TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 30. Red Grange sent New Year greetings to local, football fans in a telegram announcing he would be here with "my football team" on January 1, The telegram received by local promoters, said: "This is to assure you that I will have my football team in Tampa to play your team on New Year's Day. Regards. (Signed) "Harold Bed Grange." Grange's team will oppose an aggregation to be known as the Tampa Cardinals, which is being organized by Herbert Covington, formerly of Centre College, and Bill Gardner, of the Carlisle Indians. The tentative lineup of the local eleven includes such stars as Jim Thorpe and Red Roberts, formerly of Centre. it 4t?

HELPFUL HINTS HUNTEES y MOQMSJtCKEQMJN When you hunt ruffed grouse be on your toesl Keep your eyes ahead, your range of action clear and the safety off! This is timely advice for the hunters in country where the ruffed streak is "pretty scarce". What has happened to tha 1925 ruffed grouse crop in the north country I do not know. But the birds are not there. The explanation that fits best seems to be a "wet spring". However, grouse hunting, where the birds have been wised from many misses, is a job in itself. You must concentrate on your work, must remember what you are hunting for, work hard every thicket and clump of evergreens and keep your finger close to the trigger. Good Will Quoit Team Wins From West Side The Good Will quoit team defeated the West Side Hose Company quoit-men, of Steelton,, in an interesting match, four games to three. With the rivals tied at three games each, Clark and Shaner gave the decision to Good Will by winning from Alberts and Hoover; 25 to 18. The Good Will tossers scored nine ringers and 160 points in the match, while West Side had seven ringers and 148 points. Mentzer and Beck Are Stars in Carlisle Win Jumping Into an early lead, the Carlisle X. M. C. A. quintet defeated the Harrisburg "Y Saturday night, 24 to 14. The accurate work around the basket of Mentzer and Beck proved too much for the locals. Each of the Carlisle stars collected six goals, which proved more than enough to win. Final Grid Game STATE COLLEGE, Nov. 80. Although the Penn State football season officially ended on Thanksgiving Day when the Nittany Lions gave the University of Pittsburgh a real battle, there still remains one game that is a feature at Penn State. This is the annual freshman-sophomore tilt which is to be staged on Saturday of this week. Defeat Proves Helpful in Developing Grid Team; Numerous Examples NEW YORK, Nov. 80. While other sections of the country might scorn their jubiliation and inquire . the cause of all the shouting, Princeton men felt elated when their team won the football championship of the "Big Three." Even if these are no longer the days when a Big Three champion was automatically the champion of the country there was national interest in the victory of. Princeton over Harvard and Yalo because it was another sue cessful uprising of the under-dog or tiger in this particular case. Princeton also lived up to tradition that a Princeton team can't be beaten if it won't be beaten. There was no doubt that Princeton only an ordinary team when the sea-so started developed with an astounding speed and in its last game against Yale was one of the finest teams of the year! There are additional causes for satisfaction at Princeton because only six regulars will be lost in June and with Lea, Moeser, Davis and Darby back in the line and Jake Slagle, Ewing, Prendegast, Bridges, Bears and Weeks in the backfield, Princeton ought to have one of tme greatest teams of 1928. Breeds Over-Confidence By a natural process of reasoning, such a wealth of fine experienced material with the pick from a good freshman team ought to give any coach a winter of peace and perfect contentment. But some coaches and Bill Roper may be among them find the occasion for alarm when the prospects' look too bright. It may not be advantageous for varsity certainties and prospects. to live for a year in an, EDISON CENTER QUINTETS READY TO OPEN SEASON With prospects bright for a banner season, the four teams in the Edison Community Center Basketball League will hop off tomorrow night on a campaign that will extend until February 23, wEon a champion will have been determined for the annual classic with the Camp Curtla circuit winner. Governor's Troop and Market Square will figure in the opening battle, which will stajt at 7.80 o'clock, while Hick-A-Thrifts and Sons of Rest furnish the second half of the double-header. The Restmen, who have dominated the city's cage activities for a number of seasons, are entering the campaign with their championship virtually intact, according to reports, and are determined to extend their reign. The other Edison contendors, however, have taken on new strength in an effort to crown a new ruler. Time, of course, will settle the controversy. Hostilities in the Canip'Curtin organization will open next Monday night with West End, Greystacks, Camp Curtin Independents and Shop Clerks struggling for honors. In the getaway games, West End meets Greystocks and the Independents engage Shop Clerks. The remainder of the schedule follows: December 14, Shop Clerks and Greystocks, Independents and West End; December 21, Shop Clerks and West End, Greystocks and Independents. January 4, Independents and Shop Clerks, West End and Greystocks; January 11, Independents and West End, Greystocks and Shop Clerks; January 18, Greystocks and Independents, Shop Clerks and West End: January 25, West End and Greystocks, independents and bhop Clerks.

Lancaster Lawyers Take Grid Game From Dauphin The lawyers of Dauphin County. twho have taken their recent football from the bleachers or left it alone altogether, met a football team of Lancaster County barristers at Lancaster, Saturday, and emerged with an 18-0 defeat they may or may not try to avenge.

No coach can convince players who are susceptible to contamination from over-confidence that there is any necessity to get out and work as hard in training as a squad of ordinary talent has to work. California offered a fine example of this influence this season. Andy Smith, the California coach, had about twenty letter men in the squad when he started working with them and only two or three veterans had been lost from a squad that had reigned for four years over everything on the Pacific Coast without the loss of a game. But California lost two games and the championship. Improved After Defeat Success in football depends in no small part on inspiration and it is extremely difficult for a coach to inspire a team that has a deeply-rooted confidence that it is too good to be beaten. Bill Roper has had his best results at Princeton with material that looked very ordinary when it was placed in his hands, players in whom Inspiration and desperation could be aroused by a sign in the club house "A team that won't be beaten, can't be beaten." California will profit in the long run as a result of the defeat as a great reputation is a handicap to carry. The early defeat that Notre Dame suffered In the Army game worked wonders for a green young team. It was relieved of the burden of a tre mendous reputation passed down by a national champion, it learned how to lose and it learned how to play, ( Nine Coaches and Scouts Help Evans Select Honor Roll of Big Ten Elevens They Might Stage First Team ' PLAYER COLLEGE POS.

Trying to figure out that one is a man-sized job and then some. It means that from 110 regulars and as many capable substitutes you must select eleven players, each of whom excels at his particular position. In some quarters they say it just can't be done. Since it is impossible for one person to see more than ten games during the season, it means that he can only see a limited number of players in action. In a majority of cases he must depend upon hearsay for his knowledge. In making my Big Ten selections for 1925 I have been fortunate enough to have the counsel of nine of the Big Ten coaches. Incidentally I have been favored with the expert opinion of perhaps a half dozen of the best football scouts in the Western Conference. Just to prove the difficulty In picking an all-star eleven I need only mention the fact that none of the coaches agreed on exactly the same team. There was only a slight difference of opinion as to the forward line. However, it was quite another thing as to the backfield. Red Grange was again the unanimous choice of the nine coaches as well as the scouts. Bob Brown and Benny Friedman of Michigan were a close second. There was only one dissenting vote to Brown's claim as the best center and Friedman as the premier quarter. One of tho coaches placed Lowry of Northwestern at center in preference to Brown, while .another coach put Grange at quarter, forcing Friedman .to accept a berth on the second team. Oosterbaan of Michigan was most highly favored for an end position. Over six feet In height and very fast, he makes the ideal receiver for Friedman's passes. Incidentally he is a fine defensive end and mighty smart, a great asset for an end. Kassel, called the greatest end he ever coached by Bob Zuppke of Illinois, gets tho other wing position. Since Zuppke has turned out some great ends it i easy to appreciate the compliment paid Kassel. Edwards Crippled Star The consensus is that Edwards of Michigan is the best tackle in the Big Ten. However, the fact that he has been out of the game so much because of injuries caused the experts to relegate him to the second team. At getting down the field Edwards is a wonder and when he tackles an opponent he stays tackled. But due to the limited amount he has played it would be almost unfair to rate him ahead of men who had been in every game. Eliminating Edwards, Hawkins of Michigan and Henderson of Chicago get the call. Both have played brilliantly all season. Unquestionably Hess of Ohio State is the outstanding guard. He has been Coach Wilce's.most consistent star. Hess has outplayed every opponent and broken up many a play back of the line. For the other ruard there was ti great diversity of opiion, Shivcly of Illinois and Stlpek of Wisconson getting the highest rating with but little to choose between the two. Shively looked so good to me In the Ohio State srame that I awarded him the position of running mate to Hess. out star centers and Captain Bob Brown of this year's team lives up to all past traditions. "Brown is a better center tnan , either Blott or Vick," was the remark of one of the Big Ten coaches and he wasn't Fielding Yost. "Brown does the mechanical things just as well as either of those two stars and in addition is an ideal leader. He has the winning spirit and the happy faculty of imparting it to his players." Lowry Close Second In only one game was Brown out A CREED The word "overhaul" has a very specific meaning in our business. Applied to a used car, we define ' it as follows" To replace or repair every part necessary to put the car in good running order." And that is not simply a definition. It is a creed. WILLIS MOTOR CO.

HARMON Wisconsin LEWIS Northwestern played. Captain Tim Lowry of Northwestern had all the better of his duel with Brown and for that reason shares center honors with him, despite the fact that the weather and field conditions in the Northwestern-Michigan game made the contest a farce as far as real football was concerned. Every Big Ten coach, with the exception of one, rated Lowry a close second to Brown, a lone dissenter made him first choice. Benny Friedman is easily the clans of the field at quarter. He is the best passer in the west, a mighty good runner and far better than the average as a kicker. In addition he can think and does it. It is needless to point out the msny reasons why Red Grange gets one of the backfield positions. The virtue of no other player in the history of the game have been so widely touted. For the two remaining backfield positions there was considerable difference of opinion, but McCarty of Chicago gets the other half, while Joesting of Minnesota is the fullback- selection. Lewis, of Northwestern pressed Joesting for the honor. Really there is little to choose between them. If the team as chosen has a single weakness it is in the punting line. However, Friedman and Grange both do a pretty good job of it and no doubt could divido the duties to the satisfaction of all. Marek Mentioned In the Illinois-Ohio State gams, Elmer Marek of Ohio State allayed all the doubts I ever had as to his ability. He's a football player, every inch of him and I look for him to be one of the shining lights of the Big Ten next year. Marty Karow of Ohio State waft third choice as to the halfbacks, while Britton of Illinois and Lewis, as mentioned, pressed Joesting for the honors at fullback. There you have the eleven players in the Big Ten as I hare doped them from my own observation plus the expert knowledge of the coaches and scouts. Now start picking 'em to pieces.
