? Bisr Ten Notes :
Madison! Wis The Wisconsin
football squad got its first real taste
of Xhe Michigan style of play tonight
in a long scrimmage against the Hec
ond team. Tbe scrubs had been prac
ticing the plays for two weeks. Coach
Ryan worked a lineup similar to that
used against Minnesota. Tbe team
wilf have Its final scrimmage tomor-
row before leaving for Ann Arbor.
Bloomington Ind. Coach Ingram
today too kthe Indiana varsity back
to the fundamentals of football and
sent the entire squad through a bnrd
tackling practice. . Scrimmages are
billed daily for the team during the
two weeks of practice before the
Lafayette Ind. Northwestern fail-
ed to win. from Purdue but the Purple
eleven certainly put a crimp in the
Boilermaker lineupBahr halfback
tore the ligaments in his leg. Bolan
tackle injured his knee with the re-
sult that he had to be placed in a
plasterer cast. Deephouse guard
was sent to the hospital with an in-
jured infected foot and Smiley
quarterback added more grief to the
story by injuring a leg. Practice to-
day was of a light nature.
Ann Arbor Mich. Rumors of shifts
that will make the Michigan lineup
look like anew team are in the sir
following the early week workouts.
Where the shifts will place the men
is a carefully guarded secret but stu-
dent gossip has it that three backfield
positions and an end will be affected.
Minneapolis Minn. Mishaps to two
members of the- Minnesota football
team marred what otherwise was en-
couraging practice today for the (top-
pers engrossed in the task of "get-
ting set" for Iowa Saturday.
Columbus. O. With the return of
Captain Young wbo has been out of
niform since the logs game and
Marty Karow injured Saturday to
practice today 'Coach Wilce today
sent his Ohio State squad through
hard offensive scrimmage using
nlays which will be called for against
Chicago here Saturday. Numerous
shifts were made in the backfield in an
effort to find a combination that
could advance tbe ball.

A very Important meeting of every
basket baS player interested in the
Houston Triangle la called for 'Wed
nesday night at the Y. M. C. A. It
la important that those players in the
city who desire to see Houston well
represented in basket ball attend this
meeting tonight The Triangles rep-
utation for the highest. type of sports-
manship prevails not only in this coun
try bat in Mexico as well and it is an
easy matter to- line up ai fine . a
schedule as is desired.
Frank Bridges of Baylor Is not sat-
isfied with the seven consecutive de-
feats the Triangles have administered
his Bears but has already written for
a game here on December 20. Coach
Nicholson of Rice had the following
to say in his letter to Ross Clarke:
"Could you favor u with a basket ball
game the latter part of December in
Houston with the Rice varsity? I am
doing my best to prepare the varsity
for Its conference schedule and we
would be wliung to take a licking for
the experience. Also we are anxious
to make more firm the ties between
the varsity and sudi a fine institution
as tbC.'Houston "1." Ham Houston
St Edwardr and various other strnnc
teams desire games with tbe Triangles.
'i'ne 'xnangiee while being a rep-
resentative team of the Y. M. C. A.
are because of the democratic nature
of the "Y" a representative team of
Houston. Any basket ball player of
the city regardless of creed or affilia-
tions is welcome to try for the team.
The only thing necessary for a player
to oe welcomed to tne fullest Is a de-
sire on bis part to work hard and
really play basket ball Remember
the meeting Wednesday night at 7:30.
It is vitally important that everyone
interested be present at the Y. B.
aCO. Texas Oct. 21. Coach
Bridges has started tbe Baylor Bears
on a program of intensive training for
their battle at tbe Texas Cotton Pal-
ace here next Saturday against the
Austin College Kangaroos. The
Bruins displayed much improvement
in tbeir victory over the ArkuoHas
Razorbacks. but .there still remains
several flaws in the Green and Gold
machine. Careful note of these errors'
were taken by Bridges and be Dro-
ceeded immediately to iron them ont.
"Sniper" Connallv veteran right
end who was carried from tbe Arkan-
sas game unconscious is improving
and will very likely set back -in tbe
game against the Kangaroos. Only
minor injuries were sustained by other
rtruins ana tuey will quickly heal tor
them to stay in the game.
A very difficult game is in prospect
for the Bears fegainst Pete Cawtbon's
pupils. The Kangaroos are sure to
open up with every trick they have in
order to down Bridges' squad while
the Bears will be forced to play un-
der cover to a large extent This will
be tbe first time Baylor has played
Austin college since 1021. In that
game tbe Kangaroos held a lead over
the Hears until tbe last few moments
of the game when the illustrious
Wesley Uradshaw returned a ount 60
yards through a broken field for a
touchdown and to win the game by a
core of 17 to 14.
With Baylor being compelled o
cover up part of tbe time the Kan-
garoos will likely score on the Bruins
and an Austin college victory is not
impossible. Jlowever Joacu Bridges

There is talk about - abolishing tne
so-called "world series" on the ground
that it is a bad thing for baseball.
The post season series started as
a- sporting proposition intended in-
cidentally to offer the ola.vere on all
crabs aome Incentive for playing their
best through the season in - nope of
being with a pennant winner and
sharing in tbe post season' gate
money. Ball magnates figureo that
this would develop more public inter-
est in baseball..
It worked that way for a while.
Then came some small scandals and

how the Giant players planned a

The money always becomes the main

Big prices for sporting events have
a great deal to do With tbe trouble.
When speculators can get $7Q for
world series seats and up to a hun-
dred for seats at a championship box-
ing bout there is altogether too much
money in sight for tbe promoters. It's
easy to turn large blocks of seats
over to speculators and it is often
done. There was much less crooked-
ness in tbe old days wben a good box-
ing bout could be seen from tbe ring-
side for $5 a ball game for a dollar
or two. Even amateur sports are
feeling tbe effect of too much money
grabbing. The best college football
game seats used to be had for $2.
Now it's five or whatever the specu-
lators can get over that. I've seen
speculators demand up to a hundred
dollars for a seat at a big game where
tbe seats were presumably sold out

Business Manager Fred Ankenmau

league magnates which will be held
Saturday and Sunday. President II.
L. Robert will go to Dallas later in
Tbe business which will come be-

tbe beginning of each season Texas
league clubs are required to post
$1000 in a good faith fund with the
president of the league and 10 per
cent of tbe gate receipts of each
game go into the Texas league treas-
ury as well as the Texas league's
share for the Dixie series. After the
expenses of the league are met this
money is divided among tbe club

There is a probability that the ques-
tion of the disposition of the Galves-
ton franchise will be discussed. A--ceTding
to a Texas league law any club
which does not draw 50000 fans dur-
ing the season can be cut from the
circuit without tbe consent of the
club which is dropped. Mr. Ankenman
had.no figures available as to whether
the 8and Crabs had had that many

club drew about 115000.

Boxing waa "killed" in California
several years ago after a number of
scandals that upset public interest In
the sport It was voted oat' by the
leople. ' Boxing commhvions hadn't
teen invented' then and conditions
were bad -Only four-round amateur
bouts have been legal in recent year.
After tbe war feui round bout be
came popular and hare been run so
successfully that California - want
boxing baoi again and wants to see
the real champions in action. There
is a big porement for the return of
boxinc under commission control. In
November amendment seven will be
voted upon. '
Amendment seven provides for box-
ing under control based on the suc-
cessful New.Yoik State law. If it
passe there will be a State commis-
sion. - Bouts ' will be limited to 10
rounds;-with decisions by two Judges
and referee and in case of disagree-
ment two rounds more. Assembly-
man Harry Morrison of San Francisco
started the fight for boxing and got
tbe American Legion posts to back
him. Tbe American Legion holds box-
ing bouts all over the State now
under the four-round amateur law.
The new amendment provides th a
percentage of gate money is to go to
tbe Veterans' Home iu California for
new buildings. The State Is to get a
percentage fit In New xork and only
legally Incorporated clubs under State
commission control can bold bouts.
In the old days California was tbe
best boxing State In America. Many
famous champions boxed in California
and many world champions were de-
veloped there. Among the famous old-
time promoters were Sunny Jim Coff-
roth Pop McCarey and the California
Athletic club. Corbett and Jeffries
were California world heavyweight
champions. Bob Fitssimmons fought
his first American ring battle In San
Francisco. Young Mitchell was one
of tbe told-tlme champions on the
const. Jimmy Britt Joe Thomas and
Willie Ritchie were other California
world titleholdcrs. Battling Nelson
Ad Wolgast and Stanley Ketchel won
their titles there. Jack Dempsey
started in California later In the four-
round game. The original Jack Demp-
sey I Blanche McGovern John L
Sullivan Walcott Longford Johnson
Joe Gans Erne tavigne Mysterious
Billy Smith Tommy Ryan Joe Choyn-
ski. Hawkins. McFaddeu and scores
of the most famous boxers of the old
davs battled in California rings.
Vith such an historic background
boxing is likely to come back into
favor in California and to be conduct-
ed so well under commission rule that
it will be as popular at In tbe days ol

the old days.

of the. known power of Terrill a very
close game is expected.
Among other star prep school play-
ers Terrill baa on Its team three ag-
gressive Indian players from Okla-
homa who are feared by all tbe high
school teams in the State. The Rice
Froah are equipped with only a fair
line but boaat a string of promising
back's two of them being local boys.
Cumming playing halfback is a for-
mer Central player and Ogg quarter
and fullback is a former Heights Higa
school player. McKinnon formerly
of Central High Is f igbtiug it out with
fair success at end on the Kice Frosh.
This game will be tbe first In the
Slimes' schedule and Coach Nicholson
Is pessimistic about the outcome of
the game on this account and also be-
cause the Froah have been absent so
much because of late laboratory
classes. The team made a big im-
provement in play last week In tbeir
scrimmage with the Kice Varsity.
Admission to tbe game will be fifty
A plan Is on foot fb give telegraphic
reports at Rice Field of tbe T. C. U.-
Owl football game being played thU
same afternoon at. Fort Worth.
Graduation will take its usuul toll
from the Owls varsity squad tbis year
and to . tbe Freshmen the Institute
team must look for replacement
troops. The Freshmen team of last
season furnished some excellent ma-
terial for Coach Heisman's 1924 team
and these men with a year's experi-
ence are expected to be the bone and
sinew of the Owls next year.

New Football Play -
NEW YORK. Oct 2 L Princeton;
is planning to use an innovation in:
the way that its football team 1 rue.
Siuce the start 'of the season the Tl- v
gers have been using the "huddle' i
system of arranging for play Instead;
of the old-fashioned calling of signal
by thequarterback. There I no quar-
terback at JPrinceton. At least there .
hssn't been one as yet Single who ;
baa been among the most widely di 1
cussed of Princeton's player this year
is iu that position but la simply aav
Captain Buss Stout a star end. Is
the man directing the play of the
Princeton team. Tbe huddle system
is a grouping of the players before
each offensive play during which tbe
captain announces tbe next play. One
of the main objections to thia sys-
tem fans been made on the gronnd that
it takes too long; but several prom-
inent coacflea among them Captain
McEwan of the Army have ventured
the opinion that it takes so longer
than the others.
