NEW TOEK, Bept. 8. A scrutiny of the
playing date of the more Important foot
ball teama of tha east, west and . aouth
Shows that Saturdays of October and No
vember fairly bristle with games that will
keep the Intereat of foot ball fans on de
' from week to week until the aeaaon closes
', in Philadelphia on November 2. with the
teama of the United States Naval and
Military academies rinsing- down . the cur
' tain for another twelve months.
. Although tha first contests of the fall are
i to be played on September It, there will be
j little of moment 'In gridiron circles until
the month of Octobar. It will' not be until
the closing Saturday of September arrives
1 that the majority of tha big teama awing
' Into line and play their first games. Even
these are llttla mora than practice affairs
arranged by the managera In order that
the coaches may be able to detect and rec
' tify In actual play faults that would spell
the undoing of the teama a month later.
No better evidenoe of the caliber of these
contests need be cited than the fact that
' the big teams play two games a week hi
many caaes, Wednesdays and Baturdaya
i being the most popular daya for the prac
tice struggles with the smaller college com
, Start of tha Blar Oamea.
, The second tsge of the season may be
i said to open this fait on October 3, when
' Princeton university plays the Springfield
Training school at Princeton and the team
, of Syracuse university travels to New
! Haven to test the early autumn metal of
j the Bulldog. A week later the games grow
trifle more important and from the long
I list of contests scheduled the Princeton
, Lafayette,. Syracuse-Carlisle Indian, Wll
: llama-Harvard, Yale-Holy Croaa and the
1 Pennsylvania State against University of
Pennsylvania games stand out as features.
I The middle of the month brings still other
struggles which will Interest ' followers of
the sport In all parts of tha country. On
. October 17 the Yale eleven will go to West
.Point to meet In annual gridiron battle the
army foot ball players. On tha same day
Cornell and 'Colgate meet at Ithaca, tha
Virginia Polytechnic Institute team Invades
the lair of the Tiger at Princeton, Penn
aylvanla and Brown are scheduled for
Franklin Field and In the middle west the
' representatives of the University of Chicago
and Illinois will mingle on Marshall field
These are the topllnera of the day, but
some idea of the popularity of. the game
may be gathered from tha fact that on the
aame afternoon there are no less than 104
-other contests between college and unlver
slty teams, and were the games between
high schools and academies counted the
total number of matches In all parts of the
country would pass tha WO mark.
'.The list two8aturdays of October begin
to give a taste of the foot ball feast to
come. On October 24 Colgate will play at
West Point, Lafayette visits Brown at
Providence, Dartmouth will be the guest of
Holy Cross at . Worcester, Syracuse after
playing. Princeton will be able to make
comparisons ' between the strength of the
Ells and the Tiger, while the Quakers will
attempt to down their old and formidable
rivals, . the Carlisle Indiana, on Franklin
field, Philadelphia. Just seven days later
It will , be Princeton's turn to tackle the
army -on the soldiers' plateau overlooking
trie Hudson. The aame day Brown will In
vade Cambridge In an attempt to overthrow
the Harvardltes. Dartmouth and Amherst
will meet at Andover, Cornell and Penn
sylvania State at Ithaca,' Syracuse and
Williams at Syracuse, Chicago and Minne
sota at Chicago. Michigan and Vanderbllt
at , Ann Arbor, Pennsylvania and Swarth
more at Philadelphia, with 109 other games
of, minor caliber being fought out all over
the country
Real Season Comes.
With the dawn of November the real
championship contests approach. Novem
ber 7 sues the final tryouta. In some cases
previous to the big gamea of the season.
Yale will face Brown at New Haven, aa it
the custom a week previous to the Prince
ton contest. The Tigers, with Dartmouth
aa the opposing team, will demonstrate to
the coachea their fltnesa to meet the Blue
eleven weeks later. Harvard will try to
retain Its scalp with one hand and defeat
the Carllale red men with the other, and
among the long list of gamea for the day
the Syracuse-Colgste, Wisconsin-Minnesota,
Pennsylvania-Lafayette, lowa-IUin-ols,
Pennsylvania State-Bucknell aamea
stand out prominently. The following
Saturday, November 14,, marks the height
of the foot ba'll aeaaon. On that day Yale
and Princeton play their annual game at
Princeton. Dartmouth and Harvard meet
In the Imposing -stadium on Soldiers' field
nt Cambridge, and the elevens of Cornell
and Pennsylvania will uphold the prestige
of eastern foot ball In the two greateat in
tersection atrugglea of the year, meeting
Chicago and Michigan, respectively. Of
aecondard Interest on the ssme day will be
tha gamea between Brown and Vermont,
Syracuse and Tufta and Virginia and
The struggle between Harvard and Yale
at New Haven on November ?1 marks the
waning of foot ball for another year, both
in the east and the weat. The gamea bet
gin to diminish In number even on thla
date, and few have the Importance of
thoae of the preceding week. Among those
that stand out prominently, aside from the
meeting of the Crimson and the Blue, are
the gamea between Chicago and Wlsconaln,
Michigan and Syracuse, Williams and Am
herst. Washington and Vanderbllt. and the
Navy and Virginia Polytechnic. Thanksgtv
ing day, which some years ago msrked the
climax of each gridiron season, has but
few big gamea to boast of this autumn
Pennsylvania and Cornell will meet In
their annual struggle In Philadelphia, the
Carlisle Indians tackle the eleven of St.
Louis university -despite the fact that two
days previous the red men will have faced
the Unlveraity of Minneaota at Minne
polta. With a lapse of but twenty-four
bourse Franklin 'field will again be the
scene of a foot7 ball game, thla one the
cloaing contest of the . seaaon, when the
Army and tha Navy tea an line up for their
yearly foot ball battle before the thous
and of spectators that gather annually to
w1tnaa the stirring' struggle between the
two academy elevens.
Makers at Cesrkn,
Yals and the Unlveraity of Chicago are
tied aa tha largest providers of coachea,
each having furnlahed nine of thla sea
son's list, not- Including former, players
coaching their own college elevens. It Is
significant, too, that Alonso Stagg, the
coach of Chicago, who has had a hand

Maroon graduates now coaching, la a Yale

' follows Yale methods entirely.
At the present time Yale la represented

precedent, Yale also has one ef Its-own
graduates for the head coach of the Blue
eleven, L. H. Blalow holding the position
this fall, and others will help at Weat
Point and Annipolls later In the season.
Next In point of numbers In the east are

ANNAPOLIS. Aid., Sept. 5. Twenty-si
midshipmen, comprising the pick of the
championship foot ball team of the United
States Naval academy, are now on leave
of absence and at their homos awaiting
the call that will bring them back to the
academy about the 24th Instant. -The mem
bers of the foot ball team have been al
lowed to go to their homes a week In ad
vance of the other midshipmen as they
hove to return to the academy one week
earlier than their classmates, so as to get
to work on the gridiron. It has been the
custom for years for the foot ball players
to return In advance of their fellow mid
dles, thereby curtailing; their vacation.
This year, however, the authorities have
made it up hy allowing them a week at
the beginning of the vacation period.
The twenty-six midshipmen are In splen
did condition. With the number are Percy
W. Northcroft, the huge tackle, whose
home Is Pautucket, R. I., and all the other
members of last year's squad except those
who have graduated, and Max B. De Mott
of Nlles, Mich., end on the eleven of last
year, who had to be left at Newport, R. I.,
on account of an attack of typhoid fever.
It la doubtful whether or not De Mott
will be able to play foot ball during the
coming season. If he does not, the loss
will be severely felt, aa Dague, the other
end, haa graduated. This will give the
coaches the task of developing) two. ends,
and it will not be an easy one. However,
there Is much good material and the job
will probably fall to Douglass Howard,
captain of the eleven of 1905, who will be
one of the coaching staff. Howard was
one of the best ends who ever played at
the academy.
Enthusiasts Begin to Wonder What
Sort of Team Is Coming;.
CAMBRIDGE, Maes., Sept. 6.-Foot ball
enthusiasts are wondering - what sort of
an eleven will represent the Crimson this
year. The candidates will be summoned
for practice September 15, and then thlnga
will be on the move till the end of the
- Of the men who faced old El'i last Novem
ber, none of the regulars have graduated
and two of the substitutes are gone. Of
the "H" men eligible this year there are
Captain T. R. Burr, '09; H. Finn. Jr., '10;
Hoar. '09; G. G. Browne. '10, and V P.
Kennard, 09. Burr will very likely con
tinue at tackle unless there Is a scarcity
of good guards, when he will be shifted
to his old place.
Of the second eleven Fish. Kennard,
Roblnso.s IlJilen, Phllliphar and Comstock
will come out for the vacant tackle posi
tions. The' fight for tackle this year
promises to be unusually bitter, and the
winning men won't be known for weeks
after the ball begins to be passed.
Guards are scarce. Burr most likely at
tackle, leaving the fight to come among
Hoar Frockhelmer of last year's second
team, and Dunlap and Maguire of the
freshmen.. Every year there are a number
of lightweight men trying for guard, but
have to be dropped on that account.
End are plentiful this year. G. G.
Browne and Houston look the best at this
stage of the year. Pierce and Foster of
last year's squad will also be out for work
this month. There are also Cooper of
the second team and Crowley. Corbett,
Harding and Rogers of the freshmen. R. C.
Brown, captain of the freshmen last yeur
until his Illness will Jsy for a place on
the varsity eleven.
Cutting will have the call for the vacant
place at quarter. Toward the end of last
season' he was playing a good game and
may be the varsity choice thla season.
Cate and Galattl will also be tried and
G G. Browne may be worked out there
by' Coach Percy Haughton.
Grant's place at center will very , likely
go to Hourse, substitute last season. Smith
of the freshmen and Dore of the second
team will put up a struggle for the place,
W. H. Brown, formerly of Exeter and
Ineligible luxt season, will be formidable
candidate for full back. However, Water-
bury and Plumer of laat year's substi
tutes will be out for the pUce In the center
of the back field.
White and Gray, out last year with, the
second team, and Cutler and Mlnot of the
freshmen will try for the back field, and
ought to make tha choice & hard one.
Ullbert and Graydon, out for full back
last year, will most likely be shifted to
half back this season, and the Crimson will
have a strong, hard-running powerful back
coach Haughton will take personal
charge of the punters, and Harvard will
nave some good kickers when he gets
through with them. Captalrj Burr will do
ine punting tor the team.

the European championship at Dublin.
He would probably have made a big
show in this year's English championship
had he entered. He and (Ritchie should
make a strong pair.
Ritchie is a base line player of the Beals
Wright order, always keeping a good length
and never getting rattled. Parke, on the
other hand, rn,akes up In dash what he lacks
In steadiness. His style and methods are
similar to those of W. A. Larned. He has

plenty of stamina, and Is deadly at the

practice has been set for September 21, a
week later than last year, it is considered
probable that there will be a number of
men working out there before that time.
Morris S. Halliday Is at present the only
foot ball coach In the city.
No definite list of the men who will be
back to coach this fall can yet b. ob

Cornell Foot Ball Alumni association, who
lives in New York, Is In correspondence
with all of the old foot ball men. and it
