Peck Declares Blue and Gold Will Win Football Championship Squad Will Return Home Next Friday From Camp Hamilton. PRACTICE BY THE PITT FOOTBALL, MEN AT CA31P HAMILTON". fry IT5 s. " - ji ywupiyi"' .'mil ifjsmrw- nwm'!" i - i By RICHARD GUY. CAMP HAMILTON (Near Windber, Pa.), Sept. 16. After watching the candidates for the University of Pittsburgh football team go through a day's work out here, one is compelled to ask himself how the team, once it strikes its gait, can help be anything but a winner. The size of the men, most of them tall nd lean, showing power and endurance, speed; football intelligence; their good condition, not one of the regulars showing signs of careless living, and their hustling spirit, combine to make one think Coach Warner is going to have another successful season. But Warner, a wise old campaigner not given to rash predictions or over-exuberance of feeling, shakes his head negatively when the matter of a championship is mentioned. "All I hope for is that we have a team as good as last year," asserts he. "I cannot say I anticipate anything better, but if we reach our power of last season we ought to be satis- Bed. Our chances are bright, but we be a new experience to him. A man of must consider there are many things- his size, speed and drive ought to make that can transpire between now and Thanksgiving." Peck la Enthusiastic. That sums up the prediction of the bound to cause terror to the opposition, mentor of the aggregation which will BUI McClelland is a likely candidate face its hardest schedule In the history for a backfield position and they will of the university.

Hard Schedule. Ahead. By next Friday the whole squad will return to Pittsburgh to spend almost two weeks in signal practice prior to opening the season at Forbes Field with Westminster. And when the men leave here they will feel the responsibility of going out to play a schedule that calls for the highest efficiency, for after meeting Westminster they will have to take on the Navy, which is a strong team: then Syracuse, coached by Bill Hollenback, and which is reported to be very strong and with championship aspirations. W. &. J. is sure to give the team a battle. And Pennsylvania, with Bob Folwell in charge, is expected to be stronger than last year, and that means a team which is liable to take over any aggregation. Carnegie Tech ought ro be stronger than last year, and Dick Harlow is building up a strong machine at Penn State. But it -strikes one the team i3 able to cope with all emergencies. Consider the regulars. There is Peck -it center, Soppett and Sutherland at guards, two of the best forwards in the country, and ThornhilL a very valuable tackle, who is in better condition now than at any time in two years because he has recovered from an old injury to his back. He is showing more speed and drive now than he did last year, and then he was a tackle that could make any team. Hilty and Seidel, tackles of last year, are fighting for the position, which Dutch Hockensmith left vacant. Both had the same fault, lack of pepper. That was the trouble last year, but now it is different, for they are working with much spirit and it looks as though both will be regulars. j Vast for Stahl. , j Stahl, another tackle of last year, is another prominent candidate, but it looks as though he will be in a new position. Ted Fry has not reported yet, and it is not certain that he will do so, so Warner is grooming Stahl as sub-fullback to McLarren who will ' surely play that position. McLarren is a fierce, reckless performer, liable to j be hurt any moment, and Warner wants another big, strong man for quick emergency use. and he has him : in Stahl. The two sterling ends. Her- ; ron and Carlson, will be at their old.! positions, and only those who have followed the fortunes of the team, aside from the coach and teammates, realize what that means to have this pair back. They are capable of doing everything that good ends are expected to do. Chalkey Williamson graduated last spring, and that means a new quarterback must be installed, but Warner is not worrying, for he has a rich field to pick from. There is Meadows, who handled the team, with splendid judgment and drive when he was used last fall. And Jimmy t)e Hart, who has not yet reported. Is to be considered. Also Foxey Miller, who is as fast as lightning and has a head chuck full of brains. But Warner has a trump which he has not shown yet, and it is in the person of Sies, the 6 foot 1 inch impounder, who worked on the line quite a lot last year. Sies is not only rangy, which is quite an asset these days in directing aerial attack, but he is fast, and as the up-to-date coach seeks men f this build for quarter, i-iies is going to be a prominent candidate for the honor of runnir.fr the team this fall. Warner has had him kicking the ball quite a lot lately and he is doing it to the coach's satisfaction. When Hies played prep school football out in Illinois he was a back !d man. and so forking back of tue forwards will not the backfield more formidable. McClelland is Promising. McLarren, Hastings and Sies, a trio of bier, fast men, working: toeether. are Great Place to Train. When the candidates finv training next Thursday they wit S5 " ft-. as h' '3 'f Capt. Feck. ' spent a little over three weeks here, ; and they will leave here reluctantly, i for this is an ideal place to condition a team. The plain on which the men i run through signals and scrimmage is surrounded by hills and woodland, and the air is so invigorating that they feel like fighters. There are enough tents : on either side of a camp street to make it lcok like a military village. Here is the routine: Rise at 6:30 a. m. Breakfast at 7. Practice, 10 to 11. Lunch at 12.

C. A. Buildings Oust the Rough, Picturesque Characters. WELFARE CAMPS ARE SET UP CHICACO, ILL,., Sept. 11. The difference between the old lumber camp of bygone years, with its rough and picturesque characters, and the modern camp, with its good hotels and Y. M. C. A. buildings, was exemplified at annual convention of the National missary Managers' Association. 500 delegates from all parts of the country, but mostly from the South, were on hand. For the most part they are the managers of the commissary stores in the modern lumber camps and coal districts and they told glowing stories of the excellent conditions under which the men in those districts now operate. It is expected that during their stay in Chicago many sales of Chicago-made goods will be consummated by Chicago merchants for delivery to the various commissaries and that future sales will benefit Chicago by reason of the delegates's opportunity of viewing Chicago's goods. "Some lumber concerns operate as many as 30 commissary stores in their various camps," said Russell E. Lee, secretary of the association. "They do not buy co-operatively, but where they can buy beet. "Throughout the South and Southeast, known as the yellow pine and cypress producing belts; throughout the North Carolina pine producing belt and the hardwood belts of Tennessee and Kentucky, have been established welfare camps, fine hotels and Y. M. C. A. buildings with all accessories in the way of reading rooms and swimming pools, and the working conditions of the men are excellent. "The commissary stores, operated by the lumber concerns, supply their wants from the best obtainable goods. The commissary store is the counterpart of the general store In the small town, but it is much bigger and more complete. It handles everything that a man might need." Got Slapped for It. "You're sweet enough to eat." said he As on the porch they jat. "The Bkeeters think I am." said she "They're giving proof of that." Boston Transcript.

Ir?- ;iClviy4- . -,--lP- vih-::'.r- Villi Workouts of West Virginia Squad Lengthy Last Season's Members Prove Slow in Coming Around in Training Practices. OPENING CAME WITH PENN Special Tklkgr-im to The Gaette Times.) MORGANTOWN, W. VA.. Sept. 16. Early training and conditioning of luriiiucia ui lilt; f&t irKHlIH L 111- versify football team in preparation for the same with Pennsylvania at Philadelphia on September 30 was a failure so tar as the 1 1 5 varsity men are concerned. The old members of last year's powerful eleven were slow in coming- back, and Coaches Mrln-tyre and Tobin had only seven men with whom to work when the training camp opened on September 5. But the (baches were encouraged by the presence of a large number of enthusiastic and capablt; recruits from the secondary and high schools of the state, and the pace set by these aspirants for vursiiy honors Is so fast that it means hard work for some members of last year's first line. At present the coaches have to develop a center in place of Lambert. They have him in Russell Bailey of Weston, this state, and his present condition, after a summer's work in the oil field, indicates that he would have given the veteran a hot race for the place. Colebank. an end, is niiss-ing, and a man for that place must be developed. There are eight candidates and ail are promising. Ha per, Kat-terner and King are among those present, while AHn Brookes of 1&14 and four recruits are being considered. The coaches have to develop a new-tackle. Brannan and Henrie are on hand as guards, and Webster reported on Thursday for his old place. Newman haa not shown up. and the place of the new lineman is open. Rhodes and several others are linemen of first class ability. Additions to the number of aspirants for this place are expected daily. Hutchinson, end. and Rodgers. fullback, did not arrive until Friday of this wH;k. Rodgers. Curry, Hite and Chenoweth will take care of the back-field this season as they did last year, and not a man of the quartet will lack a. good substitute. Captain Curry has been out of the drills for several days because of a wrenched back, but his injury is not serious, and be will be in condition again in a few days. Allman. and iregory. two West Virginia high school boys, who trained with the L'niversity squad, left Thursday morning for their homes. They will be high school students and players during the coming-season, and will enter the University in tiie fall of I'JLl. Duquesne to Have Freshmen Football Eleven Only With the beginning of the scholastic year at Uuquesne University scheduled for tomorrow prospects for football on the Bluff campus this fall look considerably brighter. Xo attempt will be made to produce a varsity eleven this year, as there are not enough pridders of collegiate standing in the school to produce a representative team capable ot competing on even terms with other college elevens, so efforts will be bent toward turning out a team of freshmen for competition in the rinks of the stronger prep schools of this section. Games are wanted with prep and high school teams for almost all week-end dates this season.

ELEVEN AT INDIANA DOWN TO BUSINESS INDIANA, PA.. Sept. 16. The Indiana Normal School football coaches have been plodding along quietly with their squad since September 1, hand- ins- out work, aimed largely toward conditioning tne men lor me strenuous work that wiil follow. The candidates are rounding into shape and stiff scrimmages will mark the practices during the week of September 18. The scrimmage of last Saturday left its mark in injuries, and a number of players are nursing muscle bruises. Harrick and Ientz, who have been working at tackle positions, both suffered severe shoulder injuries and will not be able to resume the work for at least two weeks. Johovics, Creighton and Williams have been confined to the school hospital during the past four days, but they are expected to report for practice by the middle of the week. From last year's championship team Capt. Shick and Hills at tackles, Hugh at center; Gano, Alexander, i Kelley and Ruffner. ends, and Brick- ley and Sutter, halfbacks, are missing. The coaches are facing the problem of building up a new machine to represent the Ited and Slate. The work of Capt. Pettier at end and Lytle at quarter featured the scrimmage.

The most phenomenal event of the program was the seventh in which Ross B. and George Summers, the favorite representatives of Mr. McCune'a stables, trotted a pole team exhibition heat to wagon. This was the first event of this kind this season and was probably the last time the two big geldings -w-iH be seen in such an exhibition. Summaries:' To beat 2:30Vi trotting. Miss Toots, b. f.
