Those who enjoy lad health figured they would have little desire left in life after the termination of two rather mildly exciting baseball races, l.ut football, largely in the personage of Davis-Klkins. from a rather remote section of West Virginia, have stepped into the void left by baseball to start tongues Congratulations arc in order for William Boyd MeKecritic, another of those local Loys who went out of town to stage a comeback and made od. While it was predicted riht here last April, on the risk of being called a traitor and other epithets hurled at those who do not sell themselves to the Pirate emise, regardless, the keen thrill of again seeing- McKechnie come through far overshadows any personal satisfaction there might be in it. Bill not only had a good ball club, but a club which, different from the Pirates. Cubs or Ciants, showed its grvaUtst courage when the test came.

And after all, what is there to winning anything but the courage to go out and get it when it is there waiting for you. The display in the fading days of the race, when the hot breaths of the (Hants might have caused the intestinal fortitude of other clubs to crack, only made the Cards fight harder. They won two 15-inning games when th meant something, and that seems to be the final analysis of a pennant winner. who shed a tear for the hard luck of the Pirates, the bad breaks of the Cubs and the collapse of Mc Craw's dream, have right tothcir alibis. But they should be kept confidential in the face of what McKechnie did with a ball club, picked up here and there, to combat ready-made potential champions.

McKechnie, much as some will withhold praise, had a great deal to do with them. Perusal of tactics, judgment and daring in the final days of the race puts McKechnie in bold re lief on the baseball behavior of the season. SKLU Plaid fans who have seen their favor-its pushed aside in the big games by heavier opposition. Carnegie is going to present plenty of beef in the rush line this year. That in itself made the opener worth while for the of students and followers who traveled to Youngstown to glimpse the lid lifter.

Carnegie made plenty of early game errors. Many fumbles seemed to be their outstanding weakness at this early stage, many advances being stopped by loose handling of the oval. All this will be ironed out with more practice. A glance into the future chances of the Tartans reflects very favorably for the Oakland eleven. Already the boys on the sidelines have dubbed their husky full back with the name Five Yards Karcis.

My JA Wally Steffen's yearly quest for a beefy, rip tearing line plunger to hold down the fullback berth at Carnegie Tech has linally been consummated. Saturday afternoon at Rayen High Stadium in Youngs-town, the Chicago jurist watched John Karcis. Monaca husky, tear great gaps in the line of Westminster College and grab off the individual honors of the opening fray His work was the outstanding fea ture of the Tartan play and the Tech mentor's long desire for a line smasher able to pick up a few yards at critical times finally seems to be fulfilled. The other offensive luminary or the Skibo attack was Glenn Moorhead, whose dashes around enJ brought back memories of Allan Weirman and Jimmy Robertson. With Harold Harpster picked tc run wild against the Titans, Moorhead stepped in and completely stole his thunder.

While the fans left the pretty little Buckeye stadium with the names of these two lads on their lips, the rest of the Tartan machine also should not be overlooked. Steffen's system which brings the individual out in the open in long swooping runs threw Moorhead repeatedly into the spotlight, but his mates were cutting down the defense in fine waves of interference. Tartans Have Power. Down in the line sophomore huskies were getting their baptism of varsity battle and standing up manfully. The heavy Carnegie forward wall was a bright spot for the v- some trick plavs and even the through the New llmington club i TO FIRST WIN Layden Eleven Seems Headed For Best Grid Season.

M'CARTHY LOOKS GOOD Bluffites Hold Back Bag Of Tricks in Inaugural Against Teachers. H.v 1 KKD P. ALf.T.R. Duquesne University seems headed for a good season. This was demonstrated when the Dukes got off to a winning stride by defeating the Slippery Rock Teachers 9 to 0.

Listed as a trial contest It turned out to be real football from start to finish and the Layden-coached team had to go the limit. It was evident to observing fans that the Layden machine was keeping under aerial attack, said to be part of the Duquesne system of play" this year, was seldom resorted to during the fray. Captain Buff Donelli. one-time soccer star, was unquestionably the outstanding star. Running the ball the major portion of the time and doing all the kicking he was in the limelight throughout the game.

Donelli's work attested the fact that Layden has at least one dependable kicker for booting against the wind as "Buff" averaged 60 yards and tock plenty of time getting them away. He also showed an uncanny ability to find the boundary line on his boots. Benedict, McCarthy Look Good. The Duke line stood up nobly against the fast charging backs of the Teachers college but Mehrinr, running from a punt formation, gained around the ends and the Duke terminals found him tough picking, for the speed boy from Slippery Kock skirted past the ends on quite a few occasions. Besides doing the big lot of gaining for the visitors Mehringer also did the forward passing.

With the fact that Layden's lads were evidently keeptn some of their plays under cover and the oppo-j sition offered by the Teachers not even bringing it to light, shows that the- Dukes have a certain punch, for jwith Donelli showing better than last year and Ganzy Benedict look-i ing like a real gridder the Dukes shape,) up rather well for their ini tial contest. This lad McCarthy also looks like a real find, calling the signals and running some pretty interference. Several of the linemen looked good also during- the fray. SIXTH. LIBERTY AND he will prove worthy of the title.

Moorhead showed all earmarks of taking his place among the backfield stars of past Tartan elevens. Eyth. a newcomer, of whom much was expected, was injured early in the same and did not get much chance to show his stuff. But the rest of the newcomers will do. judging by their performance against the Titans, who have been generally selected as the class of the Tri-State Conference.

With the same spectacular open play system, the quick use of the aerial game when needed, and the added advantage of a real line plunger and a heavy line, the Tartans seem due for one of their best years. wacsrinc. Last week when the "Scarlet Hur- i ricane swept tne Jioiimarams i fore them, tnose ians who ciuih closely to dope and tradition, figured it just one of those things and coming when it did put it in the category of other "hurricane disasters." But the gloom which last week enveloped Morgantown and other Mountaineer stronghods today hansrs like a wet blanket over the Naval Academy at Annapolis. Some will say that the curse of the Armv is on the Navy, but those who know are just wagging their heads and laughing. Because, before the season Is over, this Davis-Elkins outfit may cause the task of picking a national champion to be as easy as the proverbial falling off a log.

Crafty Cam Henderson of the Scar let outfit has introduced a new method in football preparation. Since early July his term has been at its task, wit" the result that the open ing of the season found them in mid-season form and sufficiently capable to make suckers out of two such nationally known teams as the Mountaineers and the Navy. Others whisper the story that the rotund Doc Spears, not having much to do this summer, spent a few hours at Davis-Elkins telling Henderson a few tricks to spring on the big fellows who anticipated easy picking. But whatever it is. or vhocver has done it.

Davis-Eikins right now is the talk of the football world and tho conversation won't die down as the season grows older. Cliicaso Gets Taste. The other big upset of the unofficial opening day of Chicago was the fast one it ran into from South Carolina. Old Man Stagg never ran into that before and likely now wishes that he had never withdrawn that early determination to make lust year his last year. Like all comebacks he ran into a surprise, but, in its typical Western Conference way.

Chicago wiil likely soon, efface this demerit as the Big Ten season ears on. Locally, the situation seems to be well in hand. Opening games reveal little, except to disprove the i coaches" idea that he has ji.u im i i m. i-'u- niu-uv, an-jeii. muu eun ciaia got away although in de-ferenca to Thiel and Westminster, it must be said that these two had their anxious moments.

Tanl hers I -ike Kirpo. If one wished to grow facetious about the Tant hers and'accept their first effort of the green Sutherland machine as typical of its season, it would not be amiss to dub them tho "Kirpos of Such prodigious strength, such potential power, it has rarely been Pitt's pleasure to spring on opening day. From whjt they showed against Thiel the team could batter down a brick wall. They might not do it in the finished manner of the experienced brick wall dmolisher. but technique is not always imperative, especially when a team is just in the making.

One thing Titt showed beyond argument is that it has two or three ball carriers who bring back the old rugged days of Davles. Anderson. Hewitt. Flanatran and smack of tho more modern achievements of Welch. I lagan and Booth.

A hard runner and a more agile broken field man than Harold (Josh) Williams, will be hard for Sutherland or anyone else to dig up. Toby Uansa. the McKees Rocks lad. seems to fit richt in where Booth fell on, while this Williams person, from Mars and Bellefonte. micht be a combination.

Hewitt and Welch on a comparative scale. Uansa is as hard a runner as Nick Colonna. of the old days and is even more rugged and durable. Need of Men. Sutherland, naturally given to worry, will find plenty to fret afcout when the time arrives that his first-string forces have spent themselves or when injury cuts down one of his regulars.

It is hard to discern the weakness in substitutes when the subs get little chance to show. But such was the case Saturday. Suther- (Continued on I'aoe Twenty) PHONE ATLANTIC 4oo Saturday's Football Scores Discredited, here when he won the only flag- the Pirates took in 16 years discharged here when the club looked as though it might reign supreme for four or five years; out of a job and sacrificing himself, a world's champion manager, as an understudy to Bob O'Farrell, McKechnie 's worth soon displayed itself. He assumed the heritage of Rogers Hornsby after O'Farrell had failed, and how he made good is the story now on the lips of every one fair enough to give him his dues. McKechnie has won two pennants in three years in two different cities, a feat only accomplished by the late Pat Moran.

And at that it took Moran four years, he having led the Phillies to their only pennant in 1915 and the Reds to their first and only flag in 1919. While here Bill teas classed as one of those passive pilots. This was almost proved when he let a crowd of ambitious fellows had him into an inextricable hole in 1925. Ball clubs are said to win in spite of him, world scries to be clinched even without him. Yet one who recalls the finish of 1925, the series of that year when, against all judgment he staked his chances on Carson Bigbee and llazcn Cuyler, and then looks at this year, must revise the estimate that McKechnie lacks courage.

It may not be of the swashbuckling type of McGraw, the arrogant style of a Hornsby or the fighting style of a Bush. More is it akin to the quiet, resourceful tactics of a Huggins, whose real test comes within a few days- Winning pennants needs no excuse, so there need be none for McKechnie. He did what a lot of persons never thought he could do, both here and in St. Louis. It just typifies the old adage of sport, to make it a personal issue, and that is, to come from a mile behind in 1926 to a mile in front in 1928, McKechnie must have something other than wishbone in his baseball makeup.

With him arc two other Pirate renegades, Ma-ranville and Smith. These three should at least give a local heist to the performances which begin next Thursday and drown out, for the time, the disappointment of those who sold themselves to the rather silly idea of civic righteousness in spite of the facts. STAR OF W. J. GRID OPENER Provides Punch After Replacing Douds In Backfield.

BETHANY STUBBORN FOE Kerr Experiments With New Men in Linsup; Only Three Regulars Are Left. By AL ABKAHS. crow of young: A fighting crew of young giants from Bethany put the 192S edition Wash -Jeff football team to a real test in its opening game of the season last Saturday. The 24 to 0 triumph of the President after a tough battle, tougher than the score would indicate, was satisfactory to the Red and Black followers whose misapprehensions were many before and during the first half of the battle. With only three regulars left from the great 1927 machine.

Andy Kerr presented many new faces, and still indicated that he is experimenting at many positions. A surprising shift placed (Jap) Douds, last year considered one of the outstanding tackles of the season, in a fullback position to start the game, and Little Andy came near regretting this move. Held to a scoreless tie in the first half and seemingly unable to get started against the massive bulk of a machine presented by the West Virginians, it was not until Douds was returned to his regular place at the forward line and Gilchrist inserted into the backfield that the team started working properly. Things then began to happen. This fellow Gilchrist immediately began to tear the Bethany man-mountain forwards to shreds.

Aided by Douds, who was only acting natural, at his right post, gaping holes were found by the new fullback, and the third quarter was hardly three minutes olj before the McKeesport lad had hurdled his way over for the first touchdown. Gilchrist, Robinson and Edwards then took turns at pounding at Bethany's line during the rest of the game, and three touchdowns were scored in the third period and one in the last. Gilchrist Proves Punch. Gilchrist, considered a sub, has won himself a regular position in the President's backfield, and is bound to make the Red and Black cohorts recall Bill Amos' stunts. Although of slighter build than Amos, weighing around 165 pounds, Gilchrist is much shiftier than Bill and hits the line equally as hard.

Appreciable gains were made on nearly every effort by this fellow, who although in his senior year had never won his spurs as a regular. Bus Edwards' work was also an outstanding feature of the game, proving himself a fine opentield runner. The Presidents' main weakness seems to lie in the backfield. The line did creditably well against the heavy Bethany team, holding th-Big I Green to two first downs, one in each half. Malcolm and Aschman did splendid work, while Newby, a former Schenley High star, played a great game at one of the guard positions.

Bethany lived up to advance reports and proved more than troublesome to their opponents. The Nuss-coached eleven, one of the heaviest in the tri-state district, sepmed on the road to score one of the biggest early season upsets by holding Wash-Jeff even in the first half and enjoying the major portion of the breaks. But while the indomitable fighting spirit was still titer" the team tired rapidly in the second half and could not cope with the vicious attack unloosed by the Kerr outfit. "Parson" Fiers. giant fullback, was the best ground gainer, while Roe and Baker shared equal honors.

Rush and Marietta did some fine work on the line, repeatedly throwing W. J- runners for losses throughout the game. 27th Ward A. C. Plays Mohawks in Opener The Twenty-seventh Ward A.
