f JTHE PITTSBUKUh unjiTTE TIMES, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 19IB, I .9 i WARNER GIVES SQUAD FINAL HARD WORKOUT t Panthers Spend Stiff Session i On Gridiron Despite Poor ' Weather Conditions. TEAM IN FINE SHAPE The Pitt team was put through its last stiff practice of the season yesterday afternoon at Forbes Field. Despite the driving rain, which fell continuously, no one excused from the session and all were kept out on the field until late into the evening. The coaches never seemed satisfied and kept the men running through the various formations until they had eradicated any flaws. The Blue and Gold men are J1 In the best of condition and the eleven -will take the field tomorrow with their full strength in the lineup. Yesterday the hosts of State supporters began to arrive for the contest. Tonight, with the arrival of the team and the special trains from State College, the city will be filled with State rooters. Despite the fact that their favorites were defeated by Pennsylvania they seem confident that Pitt WW have to show their best brand of the game if they wish to keep their record clean. Weight About Even. The two teams will enter the game with little advantage in the matter of weight to either side. If there is any advantage it will be with the Panther-ites. However, the difference is not enough to count much either way. - This afternoon the students of the university will be on hand to watch their heroes in this last practice of the year. For the last 10 days no one except those directly connected with the team has been allowed Inside the field, and the students are especially anxious to get a glimpse of the men before the game. Cheers and songs will be re hearsed for tomorrow's struggle. The cheering duel between the two schools promises to be interesting. State is bringing their entire band of 65 pieces. Officials Well Known. The officials have been announced, and include men who have been seen here a number of times in the past in Pitt's big games. J. A. Evans of Williams will act as referee; W. S. Merri-man of Geneva, umpire, and R. W. "Tiny") Maxwell of Swarthmore, head linesman.

SQUAD IN GOOD CONDITION STATE COLLEGE. PA., Nov. 28. Penn State is now ready for the big Thanksgiving Day clash with Pittsburgh's eleven. Today saw the final application of the coaches' field work, so that State will face the Warnerites on Forbes Field coached to the minute and in excellent physical condition. Five coaches and several former State players followed Capt. Clark's eleven closely throughout the two hours' practice. - State will start against Warner's men as follows: Left end, Jones; left tackle, Krushank; left guard. Parrish; center, Conover; right guard, O'Don- nell; right tackle, Czarneckie; right end, Higgins; quarterback, Ewing; left halfback. Beck; right halfback, Hess; fullback, Capt. Clark. The power of Warner's machine is fully realized here. State's adherents think it would be expecting too much of Harlow's green team to win from Pitt's veterans. Some optimists, however, do venture the prediction that State's strong defense and the fighting spirit that has been aroused in Capt. Clark's men will prove more formidable than Pitt looks for. The best answer to the Penn State student body expectations lies in the betting situation. A few days ago some Pitt supporters sent J 500 here to be placed at even money that Pitt would win by at least 20 points. Only $300 of that sum has been covered by local supporters. State's attitude is one of grim determination to fight all the way from the first whistle to the final call of time and to hope for an even share in the breaks of the game. Head Coach Harlow's statement on the Thanksgiving Day struggle is this: "Our boys are going to Pittsburgh to give the best they have." Folwell's Team Completes Plans for Game on Coast PHILADELPHIA, PA., Nov. 28. Bob Folwell. the Red and Blue football mentor, insists that he has two players who should be classed with the mythical All-America elite Henry W. Miller of Williamsport, bis right end, and Howard Berry, the fullback, who is captain of the baseball team and the American pentathlon champion. The Pennsylvania team is at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club preparing for the final Eastern game with Cornell. The Red and Blue will continue training one week after the Cornell game for the combat at Pasadena, Cal., where Pennsylvania will play the eleven of the University of Oregon, a team that whipped California with ease. Twenty-six players and four coaches will make the trip to the Pacific coast in three special cars. One hundred students plan to go to the coast with the team, and from the latest reports there will be 5,000 graduates on hand when the varsity goes Into action against the big Oregon machine. The Olympic of San Francisco has extended an invitation to the entire University of Pennsylvania team and any undergraduates that accompany the eleven during their stay In California.

The Wilkinsburg High gridders had a long workout yesterday afternoon, spending most of their time on new formations and a signal drill. The coaches have decided not to HtrrimmaKe ill week, as they worked the team hard last week and think they can get better results by resting the men (or the championship game with Butler Saturday. George and Stephens are the only regulars that are not In the best of condition. When Myerg was ordered out of the Peabody game In the last quarter, it was the second time In three years that he had been taken out of the line-up. With these two exceptions, he has played every minute of the last three seasons, which Is quite a record for a lineman. WEST VIRGINIA. MORGANTOWN, D. XX., Xov. 28. (Special.) West Virginia Is rendv for the fray at Fairmont on Thanksgiving Day. Not a single scratch mars the physical condition of any man on the squad. A brief signal drill in which the final efforts were made to smooth down the offense of the tem, and a snappy workout in running back punts constituted the work of the afternoon. The team. 22 strong, accompanied by the coaches. mangers and trainers, will leave for Fairmont tomorrow. The student body Is planning to escort the varsity to the train. Coach Alc-Intire. in speaking of the gams tonight, said: "We are looking for Wesleyan to give us the harest game of the season, but the spirit of the student body will carry us through to a glorious finish." WEST VIRGINIA WESLEYAN. Bt'CKHANXOX, W. VA., Nov. 2S. fSpecial.) The coaches put the first string men through an hour and a half of signal practice thig afternoon, and Morrison.

Marietta College will face Kenyon College here Thanksgiving Day in what may prove to be a hard contest for the Blue and White owing to the numerous inluries i to players which have been received in I the last few games. Marietta will place the most crippled team in the field that she has had to send against another eleven in year. jkTK ; iv x (Copyrleht. V- rni,. man is vex TALL A0Q "THIN W. & J. Arrives In New York This Morning Red and Blade Team Stops Over in Pittsburgh En Route to Metropolis. SQUAD WILL WORKOUT TODAY WASHINGTON. PA., Nov. 28. Washington and Jefferson's football team started at 6:40 o'clock tonight on its second invasion of the Fast, a squad of 21 players, headed by Assistant Graduate Manager W. S.

He has outlined a winter's program of newspaper work which will take most of his time. He expects to be back to Washington, however, about the first of the year to talk over matters with Manager Murphy. The officials for the Washington & Jefferson-Rutgers game of Thursday are among the best In the country. Nathan A.

TheSportSiQht By GRANTLAND RlCfc. There were two features of Western football this season of far more than passing interest. i One was the brilliant playinrf of Chic Hariey of Ohio State, who not omy proved ltiniwlf to be one of tlie game's leading Ftar. but who also accomplished more for his team than any other individual of the year, wiih the possible exception of Pollard of Brown. H in only about once every decade that an entry accomplishes such phenomenal achievements in pame after game. Those who star in one game are many. Hut to Hay with (eracular effect straight through the nchedule is another matter. Harley's work this season was second to that of no man in American football. The long list of his long runs in one big KMine after another revives the memory of Heston. Another leading feature was the mightv power of the Minnesota team at the end of the campaign. After a poor display against Illinois. Minnesota finished with nn eleven that many believe to be the stronKest in the country, iaBt or West. Wisconson and Chicago, for example, were two standard Western teams. Yet Minnesota beat these two elevens bv the scores of 54 to 0 and 4 to 0, margins too overwhelming flor anything but an unusual eleven to roll up. Probably a three-cornered battle among Minnesota, Brown and Pittsburgh would be a dull affair! and then, again, probably it wouldn't. AN EVEN MELEE. Brown beat Yale 21 to 6 ; Yale bent Colgate. Tet there are a surprisinglv larxe number of football insiders who believe that Colgate will win from the Providence lineup on Thursday, and thereby end its championship dream. We have run across as many favoring Colgate as we have favoring Brown to finish on top. Capt. Black Of Yale played ngainst both teams. "There Is one thing." he says, "which a good many people overlook. We were in far better shapo for Colgate, than we were for Brown. So the Yale games against the two teams are hardly to be taken as complete tests. Brown had a line eleven, but. in my opinion, Colgate had one of the ibest teams 1 ever saw." BACK TO STAY. With Tad Jbnes and 10 of hisi regti-lars on hand it Kli Town next season, Yale has come back to stay. Jones, by beating Princetofi and Harvard his first season in camp, has proved his rare effectiveness and has shown beyond'any debate that Yale at last has found the man she wis after to lead her back to the promised land. The one man that Jones will lose is Harry Le Gore, one of his stars, and possibly Capt. Black, but there will be an abundance of fine material im hand to continue the system whicli began with such a rush. As HaugBton returns the bill k of his young team with material in bulk, the next November battle between these two Instructors even this fan ahead holds out promise for a spectacular afternoon. Haughton's work and his lo lg record are too unusual for one dt feat to leave any dent in his fame. Any coach who can hold Yale! to one touchdown in nine years needs no further boosting. CROWDS. Our blurred memory of a waning season seems to be one of crowds or rushing multitudes, of innumerable folks. Sport is obtaining such a following in this country that new accommodations will soon have to be provided. First there was the tennis championship, where thn spectatorial rush was exceptional. After that one of our main recollections of the golf championship at Merion is swarms of people rushing blindly from one hole to another of thousands strung out along the course where one could see only every other shot. After that came the world series, with the baseball attendance record broken a battle to get through and a Pat.

A. hockey club at Duquesne Garden will be the Nationals of Ottawa in a two-game series, Friday and Saturday nights. This club is a strong one and the Winged Head skaters will have to show more team work in this series than they did in the first game with Manrirr Itrenot. Captain of the National Hockey Club of Ottawa. Ottawa last Friday when they won by the small margin of one goal. The Nationals are coming here under the leadership of Capt. Maurice Krcnot, the most prominent star on the team, and a player who was recently offered a contract by Manager Ted Dey of the Ottawa Professionals. Local hockey fans are greatly pleased with the P. A. A. team. Although the Winged Head skaters showed a lack of teamwork in the first game of the season last week with Ottawa, they showed a complete reversal of form in the second fray and swamped the Canadians, 6 to 0. The local team has practiced several times this week and its teamwork has been greatly improved.

After that followed the Yale-Princeton game it Princeton and the Y'ale-Harvard. galme in the Bowl. Once more the first recollection here is of crowds of jammed-in masses, of acres of humanity. All Princeton records were smashed at Princeton. All football records were cracked at New Haven, where 7S.O0O paid for admittance and this failed to include the 1,000 ushers and attendants. Sport's grip, the outdoor, competitive call, is developing so swiftly in this country that accommodations are being swamped. Over 200,000 would have gladly paid the price to see the Army-Navy and Yale-Harvard games, but over 75,000 ot these had to be turned down. A big sporting event today can fill any space at almost any price. For, in addition to the crowds listed above, there is still a vivid recollection of the thousands last spring who were willing enough to pay from J15 to $25 to see Jess Willard box Frank Moran in a 10-round affair that was almost sure to go one way. Boston lost the football -championship but her Red Sox still maintain one Bectlon of her supremacy. They can't quite crowd her out of the kingdom, for as one machine slips another makes good. Rickard Fails to Get Jess' Consent for Title Match CHICAGO, Nov. S. Tex Rickard, the New York promoter, after a final conference here with Jess Willard, the heavyweight champion, announced that he had not reached any definite terms binding Willard to a championship match. Rickard said, however, that his plans were progressing satisfactorily. He declined to reveal whom he had in mind as a probable opponent for Willard or where the contest. If arranged, would he decided. He said he probably would have an announcement to make within a month. Jry. r thats A VS. - I Mutt J I i u 1 1 r t mrrrr r i i .

Barney Dreyfuss is willing to part with a young fortune in return for a certain youngster who could take the place of Honus Wagner and maKe Callahan's entry look like a real contender for Hag honors. He is Rogers Hornsby, the modest young Card who didn't cost the St. Louis owners much more than the postal expense for closing the deal with a little club In the tall timbers of Texas. Hornsby, in his first season proved a sensation. Discussing the youth with the writer. Jack Miller, former Pirate, now with the Cards, paid him this com-piment: Hornsby does everything right He's a fine natural batsman of the slugging type, a dandy fielder, covers lots of ground, has plenty of nerve, a good head end can run the bases fairly well. I would say that he is one in a million. Often there comes up from the bushes, a youngster who shines in one or two respects, but Hornsby has every essential to success. GIVE THANKS.

The golf expert of the New "York Evening Post has followed his annual custom of selecting the "first sixteen" amateur golfers in the United States, the ratings beine governed by what the players accomplished in the intervening year. The list shows W. C. Fownes, Jr.. of this city to be eighth. He was rated twelfth last season. Chick Evans naturally is first, and Bob Gardner is' the "runner-up." Bobby Jones, the 14-year-old Southern marvel, is just below Fownes. The latter was the medalist at the recent national tournament and later won the Pennsylvania title, which account for his advance in the select circle. The Gazette Times Sporting Department: Dear Sir It appears to be easier to name the "three best" players in the American League rather than in the National, several of which have lately appeared in your paper. My personal choice in the American are Cobb, Speaker and Collins, but there are niany trios that would stand out. It is very difficult to overlook young Sisler in view of what he accomplished, but the feats of the three mentioned first rank them with the greatest players the game has ever known. J. E. F.
