Dick Hanrey, Captain of .Marines,
Goes Around Left End for 90- .
Yard Hun and Touchdown '
in First Three Minutes.
SAN FRANCISCO, .CaL. Sept 21.
(Special.) The ' United States Marines
started the new football season in the
right way today by downing the Sailors
of Gpat Island, 31-0, on the Oakland
field, in a game that was as full of
fight as a battie in the trenches. And
it was just about as rough. No trouDle
at all to find a scrap, for the young
men were all keyed up ready to fight
at the drop of4 the hat and they dropped
the hat themselves. Just to speed things
along. Even the rooters were Just
about as ready to fight as the players.
- There was plenty of Jazz in the
crowd, for the Marines had their, crack
-band to lead the cheer stuff and the
sailors, with a -smaller band,' made up
the deficiency -1n lung power. The
sailors got off to'a bad start. A trick
play let Dick Hanley, captain of the
Marines, scoot around the Sailors' left
end for a 90-yard run and a touchdown
in the first three minutes of play, and
right after that, Day, captain and cen
ter of the Sailors' team, was carried off
the field with a broken bone in his left
Sailor Rooters Go Wild.
Those two things took a lot of "pep'
out of the sailors right off the bat, but
they rallied in the second quarter and
played the Marines off their feet. There
was no scoring in thatquarter, but the
sailors had the ball within six feet of
a touchdown and one down to go when
Collins wriggled over. The sailor root
ers went wild, thinking a touchdown
had been made,, but Collins had gone
out of bounds, so the score did not
That' was the best effort of the sail
ors. They could, not come close to a
score afterward, and the superior con
dition and. training of the Marines told
heavily in the second half, when Bill
Steers made a couple of touchdowns
and Blewett went over for one. Captain
Dick Hahley wafifaway off in his goal
kicking, for he missed every one after
shooting the ball over the bar to con
vert the first one. Bill Steers went
into the game with an angry boil on
one leg and he was crippled so" bad
that he could make only two touch
downs and . punt (for an average of
about 60 yards. Orla ofthese days Bill
will be. feeling fit and play a regular
game of football. .
Collin Playa Hard Game.
Collins, of the sailors, spilled a lot of
his good Texas gore trylng to win for
the sailors, but it could not be done.
Risley is just about the niftiest cen
ter seen around here in many years.
He is rather, small as centers go, but
he is as active as a cat and he was the
best man in the Marines' Jine of de
fense. Time and again be tackled sail,
ors behind the line, and he came gut
of every mixup unhurfc calmly munch
ing his gum. ' ' v
The 182-pund back'field of the Ma
rines is going to be a great scoring
machine when Coach Bill Dletz has a
little, time to drill them. They are all
fast and know how' to take care of
themselves in an open field. - The for
ward pass will also' be used a lot, for
long-legged Zimmerman is a bear at
catching the ball and-teers and Dick
Hanley can- certainly heave it.
Team Work Is Lacking.
There is good material on the Goat
Island team, but the men showed lack
of 'experience and team work.
at the club last ntrnt. The swimming
tank came in for a good pat of the

Harry Bramer and Heinle Schuman,
the ."fighting Marines" from Mare
Island, were about yesterday giving
the town the "ups and downs" and
neither bore any marks of battle. Schu
man, who trounced Young Langford,
is a tough "bird" for any fighter to
beat. He would like to stay over, if
given permission, and take on some
fighte and earn a little spending
money for himself.
Bramer won a home with Portland
fans by - his remarkable come-back.
There are many strange angles to the
Bramer-Gorman fight. The most pecu
liar Is . the fact that Referee Danny
Danziger did not hear the bell sound
at the end of the second round, and as
Bramer, who had been wining all the
way, turned, to walk, to his corner Gor
man swung a hard right which caught
Harry on the Jaw and down he went.
He arose and Gorman hit him again
and still Danziger did not hear the
bell. It was only after Sergeant Marino '
and ringsiders Jumped through the
ropes into the ring and separated the
boys that Danziger realized what a
mistake had been made. Bramer's ex
cellent physical condition stood him in
good stead and he will always be
welcome to fight in this city.
It was impossible to learn yesterday
whether the 20 trophies the boxing
commission promised to award the
fighters were donated, but as tho
fighters did their "bit" the commis
