GREAT LAKE 1 ELEVEN HUMBLES SANFORD'S GREAT MACHINE PORTING SECTION . BASEBALL. eg Naval Reserves Permit Rutgers to Score it Joints and ' Then Ride Roughshod Over the Jersey Team Mighty Robeson Brushed Aside Like a Wisp of Straw Dris- coll's Remarkable Runs. THE powerful Great Lakes Naval Station football eleven from Michigan began its Eastern invasion at Ebbets Field yesterday by blowing up the great Rutgers College rnachine 54 to 14. Whereat the 10,000 spectators who witnessed the upheaval marveled and began to speculate as to what the Westerners will do to the Navy Cadets at Annapolis a week or so hence. ' That great machine, built up by Foster Sanford, and which had not met defeat in two years, ran up against the greatest collection of football stars that has ever appeared in Brooklyn. The crowd at the side lines early in the game voiced its approval of the scarlet-clad team from New Brunswick, but when the tide of battle turned and the sailor boys began to do things to the New Jersey team, then the fickle throng turned its applause and shouted for the-winners. 1 The score of 54 to 14 about represents the difference in the two teams as Rutgers played yesterday, but the college boys still 'have a wonderful organization and one that cannot be beaten in the East, From the time when Paddy Driscoll, the clever quarterback of the sailor eleven, raced 80 yards through the entire Rutgers team early in the second quarter, the spirit of the Rutgers boys seemed to ebb, and with the re- newed courage gained by the spectacular dash by Driscoll the Great Lakes lads pulled themselves together and the issue was then never in doubt. It was the best football game Brooklyn has ever seen, and not for a minute did the 200 rooters of the S. A. T. C. of Rutgers let up in their cheers for a victory in spite of the fact that the husky sailors were adding points every few minutes. Every known trick of the game was tried by Sanford's boys, but each time some alert sailor broke up the play and finally forced Rutgers to rely on straight football. Rutgers .Sot tlio Karly Pace, Rutgers scored just 7 minutes and 42 seconds after the game started. Left Halfback Kelly crashed through for the first score after Robeson, the AU-American end of last year, had carried the ball 15 yards on a well-executed forward pass. Gardner kicked an easy goal. The only other score made by Rutgers came early in the second period when Great Lakes was penalized three times in succession. Summerill carried the ball over the line and again Gardner kicked the goal. Rutgers was through scoring for the day, and with the big handicap of 14 points facing them the sailors got together and made a procession of the game from then on. Capt. Keefe, Quarterback Driscoll and Right Halfback Kricson starred for the sailors, vhile Robeson, Kelly and Gardner tried to stem the tide of defeat for RutKers. Driscoll took the heart out of the Scarlet eleven in the second quarter when he received the ball on his own 20-yard line and raced through the entire Rutgers team for a touchdown. He kicked the goal. A few momenta later Gardner was compelled to punt and once again Driscoll, catching the ball on his 45-yard line, tore through the center of the Rutgers team for a 55-yard gain and touchdown. This brought the score to 14 to 13 in favor of the New Jersey eleven. Driscoll's try for goal struck the left-hand upright and the ball bounded back into the field. The first half ended with the ball on Great Lakes' 1 5-yard line, where it had been carried in a series of clever runs by the Rutgers players. In the intermission the students of Rutgers and whatever sailors were present executed a double snake dance on the field. The Rutgers students sang their college songs while a score of young women carried a huge flag about the field. A shower of coins landed in the flag, one woman becoming so enthusiastic that she tossed her poeketbook Into the Held. Secretary Daniels Was Late. Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels arrived at the game shortly after the start. He was to have thrown out the ball for the game, but was delayed. He was accompanied by Rear Admiral Usher, Rear Admiral McDonald, A. C. Bedford, chairman of the Citizens Committee of the United War Work Campaign; tT V Tivitnholl fh-.i I rvn a n of ho Brooklyn Campaign Committee; William Hamlin Childs, and other members of the committee. Secretary Daniels could not stay for the finish of the game, as he was to review the parade at the Unity Glut). During the Intermission six aviators who had heen riving over tne neia ar rived on the ground, having left their machines at Ihe Parade Grounds. Six other airplanes flew over the Park be fore the start or tne game, ana men thev left to accompany the parade. Before the end of the game the six pilots and their observers from the Mmeola field gave tne crowd a lew thrills. Flying at a height of 500 feet, they wovjld swoop down to within less than 100 feet from tne ground, ana would then slowly rise again. This stunt was repeated several times. On the last loop of the planes one of the observers stood up in his seat and dropped a football to the waiting arms of a sailor. Then Came the Slaughter. Tho second half was a regular pa rado for the sailors. On the second play of the third quarter Erlcson car ried the ball across the line for ( touchdown. Driscoll again kicked the goal. A few minutes later Driscoll went over for another score. This time he failed to kick the goal. Before the end of the period Eielson carried the ball across the goal line for another tally, Driscoll kicking the goal. Three times in the final period the sailors worked the ball across the line. Willeman and Reeves scoring, the former crossing the line twice and Reeves once. Driscoll kicked the first goal and Blacklock the other two. The mighty Robeson was helpless before the Naval lads, being swept aside ai nil times like a wiso of straw. The game netted a tidy sum for the War Work Oompaign, and the committee in charge, left nothing undone lo make the affair a most enjoyable one. Capt. William H. Kemble of the 13th C. A. was in charge of the arrangements. Al Farrier, Dartmouth, was tho referee, and Williams of Harvard oftlciated as umpire. Reed, .Springfield Training School, was the head linesman. The. Great Lakes team will sojourn up-State for a week, and will meet the West Point eleven next Saturday. Later they play the Middies. All the crack Western colleges are represented on the sailor eleven. Driscoll, the star of yesterday's game, was the quarterback of Northwestern University. Capt. Keefe starred for the Notre Dame eleven, and Kricson Is a graduate of St. Olaf's College. Ut.

WARNER'S MACHINE ROLLS OVER PENN Georgia Tech Scout Sees Pittsburg Eleven Roll Up 37 Points by Straight Football.- (Special to The Eagle.) Pittsburg, November 16 The University of Pittsburg football machine ran all over the organization representing the University of Pennsylvania here today, winning by a score of 37 to 0. Five touchdowns were tallied against, Hollenbach's boys four of them being turned into goals, while Tom Davies, the young star from ; the Klskl Prep School, booted the ball over tho posts from the 32-yard line. Glen Warner knew that Qeorgia Tech had a man on the sidelines in the person of John C. Brooks of Atlanta, who is connected with a big manufacturing concern here, but it he was able to uncover any extraordinary plays put up by the panthers today, he did more than the newspaper men, for Warner simply played straight football in all four periods, and by regulation end runs, center rushes and line-smashing, sent the Red and Blue of Pennsylvania to defeat. Pitt scored a touchdown five minutes after the game began. After Easterday's gains had carried the ball to the 1-yard line he was pushed over. Gouglcr missed goal. Penn held pretty well for a while, and Pitt could not get nearer the goal line than the 32-yard line, from where Davies kicked a field goal. In this period McNichol, Hopper and Harvey played desperate ly, and although frequently laid out, refused to leave tho game. The second period began with a run of 25 yards by Davies and soon afterward McCracken was pushed over from center. Davies kicked goal. Pitt kicked off, but Penn could not hold the ball and was forced to punt out of danger. Davies again got in the limelight when he shook off three Red and Blue tackles and ran over the line from the 25-yard-mark. He kicked goal, making the score 23 tp 0 at the end of the first half. The third period found Hamburger running the team and he smashed the Penn line for material gains until the ball was at the 6-yard line. Gougler was pushed over for a touchdown, the same player kicking goal. The Panthers' scored their last touchdown in the first two minutes of the fourth period. After that several substitutes were sent in and the Penn line held. The Panthers should have scored another touchdown, only for Friedman, who fumbled the ball on the 1-yard line and Penn kicked out of danger. The visitors scored only one first down and Pitt 25. Lineup: ritt (37). Position. Penn (0).

This wiped out the defeats of the past two seasons. Wesleyan did not give the Morning-side boys an easy victory. The 4,000 people, who filled tho stands on the south and east sides of the field, saw one of the most clever, brilliant and well-played games of this season, Lt. Robb, captain-elect of the o-lumbia team, was once more the center of attraction. It was Robb who defeated Wesleyan. He made both touchdowns. He was assisted by Canapary, Forsythe and Grace, three Brooklynites, who helped him drive down the field. They also repelled the repeated attacks of tho Wesleyan machine. The game was not started on time, because the officials had a long argument about the rules. Wesleyan won the toss and kicked off to Columbia. Shaw, received the ball, but fumbled, and Wesleyan got the pigskin. After a minute of terrific line smashing. Raines of Wesleyan fumbled and Fargo won the ball for the home team. Columbia tried to work up a contin. uous drive down the field. Houlihan, her star fullback, was stopped so hard he went out. He tried to regain his feet, but wabbled. Three times he endeavored to walk to His position. but had to quit. Canapary took his olace. Columbia seemed 'to lose her stamina with Houlihan out. The Blue and White could not gain. Stevens was comnelled to nunt to Steele, who re ceived tho ball about rnidtield. Booto showed uo again, and came to the front punting. He sent a spiral to Robb on Columbia's 20-yard line Wesleyan was watching for Robb. He was nailed almost, in nia iracus. Krauss was also forced to leave tne game injured. Towers took his place. Weslevan felt sure of scoring. Her ends kept Circling either end almost at will. Baincs circled left end for twentv-flve yards. Then Boots tried a kick. He misjudged the goal posts. The ball was brought back to play with Columbia In possession on her 20-yard line. Wesleyan was fooled for the first time of the day. Capt. Robb, instead of following out a kick formation, circled around right end for thirty yards, Here the first quarter ended. In the beginning of the second period it was noticed that Wesleyan was playing substitutes. Walker began this period for Streibert. Columbia, having the ball, tried to rush, but failed. Stevens had to punt out of danger. Steele received the kick and was downed In midileld. Boote kicked back to Robb, who ran it back ten yards. There was a general exchange of punts. This ended when Travis of Wesleyan fumbled on Wesleyan's 25-yard line. Here Robb used his head. He faked on a. forward pass that netted seven yards when Forsythe turned it into an end run. Forsythe was tackled hard and Dr. Peterson, the college physician, had to attend him. Robb took the ball through left center right under the posts for the first touchdown of the game. Stevens kicked tho goal, making it 7 0. In the third period Canapary made big gains. He played a brilliant game, especially as it was the first chance he has had in three weeks. Forsythe and Grace also performed remarkably well. After a series of fumbles and an exchange of punts. Robb took the ball on a fake kick and shot around lot end for a distance of fifty-five yards to a touchdown. Stevens kicked the goal and made the score: Columbia, i4; Wesleyan, 0.

The game Pion of tbe world, said he would chip Joe Bonds Is Sick and Western Boxer Refuses to Meet Any one Else. By "IUCK." Jack Dempsey, who wag to have been the star of the bouts held in Madison Square Garden last night for the United War Work drive, did not appear. It was tho third time since Dempsey floated across the boxing horizon that the Western boxer has disappointed New York fans. Last night the buck was pushed up to Joe Bonds, who was to have been Demp-scy's opponent. It was announced that Bonds was sick and so could not appear. Later, it was said, that Dempsey refused to appear against any other boxer. The announcement was received with the usual hoots and cat calls. From a financial standpoint, the bouts were fairly satisfactory. It was said that $17,000 had been raised in subscriptions alone. The gate was not particularly large. House is Not Ioltkc While the upper gallery was well filled when the first pair appeared for the United War Work boxing matches, the lower floor box seats were most sparsely occupied and the prospects foir a large financial dividend were not bright. So many cancellations had marked previous benefit performances that the public appeared to be suspicious. Leo Johnson, a' colored featherweight, and Benny Valger, also a feather, were the first to take to the ring. A bald-headed party name Magnolia refereed this exhibition of Vough stuff for a good cause. Messrs. Valger and Johnson, in the first round, missed too many punches to make their work impressive. The bald-headed Magnolia urged them to do rough things to each other and It was better going in the second round, when the ebony Johnson swatted the white boy full flatly upon the jaw. From then on Valger and Johnson battered each other with great gusto until they had gone six rounds to a satisfactory draw. Willie Jackson of the Bronx next contented with Eddie Wallace the Brooklyn lightweight who is well and favorably known where the Gowanus rages. Kid McPartland, the famous lightweight of a bygone and hard fighting day, was the referee. Mr. McPartland was an intensive and impressive referee. Having seen him in action years ago, we knew his style wel) and were convinced that he could beat Mr. Jackson or Mr. Wallace with one hand and a fresh stick of chewing gum. Still one does not deserve to belittle Messrs. Jackson and Wallace they belabored so shrewdly In the first two rounds that they had the house wildly excited. Certainly, none could accuse them of dilly dallying about there work. They hit each other with everything that was not nailed down. In the third round, they busted Into a regular fight and spent what Idle time they could find slamming the esteemed Kid McPartland with stray wallops. Wallace hit the kid In tbe ear and Jackson soaked him in the nose. The round was a draw. In the fifth roundi Jackson landed three rights to the heart but Wallace countered so heavily with the left, that both were showing the effects of the fast pace that was a credit to both and had the fans on their feet,' The sixth round made the Kilkenny Cats look like pacifists. To call tho result other than a draw would be robbing somebody. Frankie Burns, the well known grand old man of the bantam class, who hails from Jersey City, took on Jack Sharkey for six rounds. Frankie recently earned money and glory for himself and his house full of kids by knocking out Johnny Ertle In the seventh round. In tackling Sharkey. Burns was up against a tough bird who had no desire to pull any parlor stuff. He could not if he tried. His Idea of a nice tasty little exhibition was to knock Grandpa Frankie through tho ropes at the end of the third round. In the fourth round Burns came back and made it an even bout with both of them working like windmills. The fifth was the same. In the sixth Burns earned the decision bv better punching and boxing. Sharkey was not disgraced. He was all to the good, but Burns was better. At the end of the Burns and Sharkey discussion, U. S. Marshal Tom McCar thy made a rip-snorting patriotic speech, asking for subscriptions to the United War Work drive fund. He re ceived on subscription of ?1,000 right off the bat. He introduced Big Bill Edwards, Collector of the Port, who agrees with Marshal Tome that boxing is the real game. Ten JnOO subscriptions were collect ed in fifteen minutes and then the price dropped to $250. Thereupon Benny Leonard, lightweight boxing cham- Tho Princeton S. A. T. C. took Camp Upton into camp at the Polo Grounds yesterday by a score of 28 to 7 in a game that was marked by brilliant individual playing and numerous forward passes. Before the game Princeton and Camp Upton paraded in uniform, while several airplanes hovered over the grounds, as the uvlators performed flying stunts.

Opie, taking a forward pass from Wlttmer on Upton's 5-yard line, made the third touchdown. Murray kicked goal, making it 21 to 0. A series of punts and forward passes followed. Upton fumbled on Princeton's 15-yard line and Weinstein, gathering up the. ball, ran for a touchdown. Murray kicked the goal, making tha score 2S-0 as the half ended. In the second half Yingllng went. in at right half for Upton and put up such a brilliant all-around game to make a good catch 'and no sooner 1 that hfi ma,le, th,e on,y touchdown succeeded in doing so than Dickenson one of the fleet Princeton tacklers, nailed him in his tracks. Brown tried to gain for Upton, but failed. Princeton was penalized 5 yards for holding. Davis of Upton fumbled. It proved tu be a costly misplay, as Harvey, Princeton's left end, kicked up the ball, eluded the Upton tacklers artl scored first blood. Murray kicked the goal, making it 7 to 0 in less than five minutes of play. Lyons kicked to Goldberg. Three runs by Brown netted the required distance. Princeton held and finally was given the ball on its 35-vard line. Lyons went around the end for 3 yards, but Princeton ws penalized 1 5 yards for holding. Lyons was forced to kick.

In the second quarter Lyons plunged through left tackle and Murray tried a field goal for Princton, but failed from the 15-yard line. Then Upton kicked to the 60-yard line. Mur ray received the kick atid, circling around right end. eluded all tacklers for the second touchdown. Murray! for 1he Long Island cantonment. Dunn kicked goal. During the remainder of the period an exchange of forward passes and punts resulted. Dempsey, Opie and Wittmer did well for Princeton, while Goldberg, Robin and Carrol did well for Upton. Princeton sent in many substitutes, including MaePhee and Hotting, old Erasmus athletes. After the game tbe Mineola aviators appeared and gave another interesting exhibition. The game was for tbe benefit of the War Work lirive and n substantial fund was realized. Big Hill Edwards was in charge. Lineup: Primeton US), Position. t'ptnn (7).

Potnpseys manager, Jack Kea-.-ns, refused to allow his man to meet Jeannette. Although the committee had the option of picking any two men It chose, Jeannette was one of those. Jack Britton, welterweight, lumped into the ring and announced he and Soldier Hartneld, also a welterweight, would box Dempsey. Kearns had an announcement made that Dempsey would box nobody except Bonds, an admitted second rater. Charley Harvey, the manager of the bouts, asked that Bonds be brought into the ring which was regarded as foolish because Bonds was l.nown to be in no shape. Then Harvey told til o world that Dempsey would not box anybody and the public gave mingled cheers and hoots, mostly hoots. Joe Welling of Chicago and Johnny Dundee were tho next pair of boxers announced. They are two of the best lightweights now In the game, and their mixup was refereed by James J. Corbett, former heavyweight champion of this footstool. The first three rounds of tho Welling and Dundee mes certainly lacked nothing for action. Welling was the moro sedate scrapper, but Dundee was the more active and somewhat more aggressive. He was also morn quick and snappy In the use of both right and left. but. as lias ever been the case ' with hint, the blows did not seem to, enrry the finishing effect their steam' wn minted. straight score of 25 targets.

Kernan, Ackley, lOrwin and BiirMna were calk-.! upon successively, but unsuccessfully, in turn to advance with the ball. So it continued throughtout the game. Syracuse's great weakness lay in her inability tu cons;stently pierce the 'Wolverine line. In the final period the New Yorkers let loose a Hock of passes, single, double and triple, and although some were successful, Michigan was able to break up or intercept suliicieutly to stay any advance.
