A couple of costlv fumbles and

Creighton field, 19 to 13.
Two of the Denver touchdowns
were directly traveable to Creighton
fumbles, one by a blue-jerseyed youth
who escaped identification because he
was buried in a mass of flying arms
and legs, and the other by Carl Lutes.
But the most lamentable mishap
was the offside play. Toward the
close of the third quarter Denver es
sayed a forward pass. Dutch Platz,
the fighting captain of the Omaha
eleven, intercepted the whirling pig
skin and ran fifty-five yards down the
field over the goal line. But Payne,
the big guard, was palpably offside.
Hegbeat the pass of the ball twenty
minutes. Even the crowd in the grand
stand saw it and realized at the start
that Platz' sensational sprint was use

although the Creighton supporters

The Blues' game with Lehigh
snowed a new Yale spirit, sqmething

the Yale team gives the impression
of being confident of its strength and
puts more dash into the plays. This
was particularly true of Harry Le
gore, who was like a dynamo for ac
tion. His punting was the team's best
defensive asset and his great open
field running scored one touchdown

two touchdowns against Lehigh

OMAHA BOY SIGNS
WITH DES MOINES
Ernie Adams Is First Man to
Sign a Western League
Contract for 1917. '
J. HOLLAND WORKS DRAFT
Ernie Adams, University of Omaha
player and for several years one of
Omaha's leading sandlot athletes, was
the first man to sign a Western
league contract for 1917. Ernie signed
up with the Des Moines club.
Frank Isbell, owner and manager
of the Des Moines team, was given
a tip by an Omaha friend that Ernie
had the makings of a great ball
player in him. Isbell took the tip and
lost no time in signing Adams up,
Ernie is quite a favorite with the sand-
lot fans of Omaha. He is a good
hitter and a good fielder and they
expect him to make good with Isbell s
Only two other men have been
signed for 1917 by Western league
clubs, lhe lopeka team has signed
Fletcher Saffell and Isbell has also
signed a pitcher named Snyder. None
of the other teams have signed any
men for next year at all. Pa Rourke
of the Omaha team seldom signs any
of his players before January.
Holland Works Draft.
Jack Holland of St. Joseph, was the
only Western league magnate to take
advantage of the draft rule this fall.
Holland put in drafts for five men,
but two of the drafts were disallowed
and one Jack cancelled.
The two men Jack gets for the
Drummers by the draft are Runser,
shortstop, and Rheinhart, outfielder,
both from the Muscatine club of the
Central association. Holland also ap
plied for drafts of Manda, third base
man with Fort Worth, Tex., RooV,
pitcher with Fargo, and Hruska of
Muscatine. Drafts of Manda and
Rook were disallowed and the draft
of Hruska cancelled.
The seven other Western league
magnates failed to apply for any
drafts, evidently preferring to buy
any needed talent later in the year,
when there are more ball players' on

Among ball players, especially the

Matty for years, and though the two
became fast friends some years ago,
F.ddie always addressed him as Mr.
One day Matty requested Brannick
to drop the "Mister" when speaking
to him. At the time the big pitcher

"Commodore" on it.
"All right, Commodore," replied
Brannick, and the name- has clung to

The contest is expected to attract

SPORTS SECTION of
Harvard Team of Uncertain
Powers Wins From Cor
nell by 23 to 0.
EDDIE CASEY IS THE STAR
Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 28. A
Harvard eleven of uncertain powers
found itself against Cornell today,
and won, 23 to 0. The Ithaca team,
a slight favorite in the betting, was
stonDed in such few attacks as it was
given opportunity to make and found
its defense penetrated repeatedly Dy
the Harvard players.
Principal among these was Eddie
Casev of Nattick. successor to Mahan,
his fellow townsman, who showed to
day by his elusive and effective run
ning attack that he was destined to
rank with Harvard's most prominent
wound earners of a decade. Hor-
ween, with bull-like, plunges, ably
supplemented Casey on open play.
Cornell bungled in the choice of
plays, fumbled when the ball came
to them, and generally seemed a team
in the makinn. rather than an aggre
gation half a season advanced.
The Cornell eleven, admitted to be
one of the best from a physical stand
point that ever came into the stadium,
made a great impression upon Harvard-
adherents. The players were
both big and fast and went through
their signal drill like a well oiled ma
chine. Betting odds changed and Cor
nell backers were obliged to give 5
to 4 in order to get their money down.
Harvard followed Cornell on the
field at 2:15 and both squads prac
ticed punting, forward passing and
catching until shortly before game

Cornell, with an opportunity to

Lincoln, Oct. 28. (Special Tele

against Wesleyan here this afternoon
and was held to a score of 21 to 0,
with Nebraska on the long end.
The Husker machine did not find it
self until the last five minutes of play,
when it reeled off two touchdowns in
quick order, forward passes, Cook to
Otoupalik, turning the trick each time.
Wesleyan never threatened the Ne

by Wesleyan on its own twenty-yard
line, the Huskers recovered the ball
and Dobson whirled around the end

behind the goal posts. Corey raised
the Nebraska total to seven by kick

Huskers Fairto Gain.
For the next two quarters Wesleyan
displayed a spunky defense and the
Cornhuskers could not consistently
advance the ball, although it was in
their possession most of the time.
Fumbles, loose interference and good
defensive work by the Wesleyan for
wards turned the game into a kicking
battle in which Dobson and Gardiner
had the edge on the Methodist punter
by five to ten yards on each exchange
Witli a 7 to 0 score staring them in
the face at the start of the final quar
ter, the Huskers turned into high and,
marched sixty-five yards down the
field, when Wesleyan again braced. A
pass, Cook to Otoupalik, was caught
by the Husker back on the five-yard
line and he dashed over the Methodist
goal. Corey again kicked goal. .,.
Forward Past Again
After Nebraska had kicked off,
Proctor intercepted a forward pass
and ran to the Wesleyan fifteen-yard
line before he was downed. Cook
hurled another forward pass to Otou

goal for the third and final touchdown
of the game.

Connie Mack has arrived at the con
elusion that he has a fairly good
pitching staff one that may be very
effective in another season. When
he began the campaign he had but
two who might be called veterans
Bush and Wyckoff. The latter was
sold to Boston, but Bush remains and
is without any doubt one of the best
pitchers in the land.
Elmer Myers has come through
and has pitched ball that would have
won most of his games had he been
pitching for any other club in the
That gives Connie two sure
enough pitchers. Nabors is a prom
ising hurler. He is very effective,
but is lacking in control. Johnson,
the Ursinus boy, is a comer, while
Sheehan, Williams and Danning are
good enough to experiment with for
a ume longer.
Believing that his pitching staff will
not be such a problem in 1917, Mack
has set out to get batters to drive in
runs for his young pitchers. That is
why he has bought Ping Bodie, the
erstwhile fence-buster; Thrasher, a
minor league batting champion, and
Ray Bates, former Nap, who wields
a powerful bat.
