rood shape after the Tuesday evening
tryoot he will play the season with
the Standifer first team.
As to the regular Standifer team.
Curtis Coleman, former University of
Oregon end and New York American
third baseman, is showing wonderful
form In the preliminary practice.
"Heavy" Bob Marshall, the bulky back
atop of the last season Standifer base
ball team, who played on the Univer
sity of Missouri varsity eleven several
yeara ago, is hitting the line like a
champion, being stationed at fullback.
Jake Farrell. at quarterback, looks to
be one of Tom Standifer's finds and
has proved himself to be a whix. The
team on paper appears to be a fast one
and evenly balanced.
Tom Standifer. on being questioned,
stated that the team looked good to
him and they were ready to meet all
comers. The football fans at the Standi
fer yards think so well of their team
that anyone wishing to have several
automobiles and suits of old clothes
only needs to back an aggregation that
can get their "pigskin gangs' " number.
Over two full teams are reporting for
practice and within another week the
first squad will begin to assume real
proportions. It is likely that Standifer
will tackle some lesser team before
going after Multnomah. Foundation
and teams of their caliber, but it is
sure that Standifer will meet these
teams before the season is over.
The Standifer-Foundation game, if
auch a contest is brought about, will be
one of the gridiron classics of the sea
son here. Tom Standifer wanted to
arrange the game for Thanksgiving
day but because of the Washington
State College-Oregon game on Mult
nomah Field on that date, it could not
be fixed. Standifer also hopes to
schedule games with the University of
Oregon and the Oregon Aggtea.

Seattle Sports Editor Writes Feeling

That Joe Flanigan, former Portland
attorney sn boxing promoter, who was
started acroes the Atlantic as a Knights

be buried in midocean, October 3, held
the esteem and admiration of sporting
writers, is attested from a glowing
tribute paid the "Judge" by Rjyal
Broughman. sporting editor of the Se

as follows: .
"Joe Flaniga;. has given his life while
doing hl bit for Uncle Sam. The well

The hundreds' of boxing followers In
Seattle know Flanigan as the guardian
of the Interests of Muff Bronson, V.
Northwest lightweight champion. The
Portland promoter bid his friends fcood
by a few weeks ago to serve with the
Knights of Columbus corps in France,
and a short time later sent his picture,
in service uniform, to the Post-Intelligencer.
He was looking forward to
the duties in France with enthusiasm.
He had taken the preparatory course
at New York for the work, and was
anxious to get on the Job.
"But Flanigan never reached the
other side. He died shortly after leav

He played the geme hard, and he hated
nothing worse than to lose a C -sion.
But most of the fans liked Flanigan, in
spite of the fact that he wae for iiis

has always wanted to be where the-e

surprised when the boxing manager

Heisman, Member of "Football
Trinity," Expects Crack Team.
YEARS OF RECORDS TOLD
With Stagg nd Glenn Warner,
'.'Football's Master Strategist"
Has Great Reputation.
ATLANTA. Ga., Oct. 19. "Football's
master strategist" is what they call
John W. Heisman, coach of Georgia
Tech. And richly does he deserve the
title. No tutor in gridiron history ever
has eclipsed the accomplishments of
this veteran teacher of football tactics.
Heisman, together with Alonzo Stagg
of the University of Chicago, and Glen
Warner, of the University of Pitts
burg, constitutes the "Football Trin
ity." These three men are the lone
survivors of the legion of footbaU
coaches who began their careers more
than 25 years ago. Their deeds have
formed some wonderful chapters in
football history and they are greater
today than ever before.
Heisman. a progressive, has been
credited with bringing about many
football reforms. Ha was perhaps the
first football coach in America to ad
vocate the forward pass. Three years
prior -to the introduction of this play,
he had considerable correspondence
with the football rules committee, go
ing into elaborate details in explaining
its benefits. For two years the com
mittee pondered over the suggestion
and then adopted the greatest football
reform play since the game's inception.
End-run Formation Perfected.
Heisman, years ago, perfected end
running to the nth power. Unfortunate
In the fact that almost always his teams
were extremely light, he overcame the
handicap by developing speed and
trickiness. He has been using for years
an end-running interference unlike
that of any other coatch in America, and
his rivals, failing in their every at
tempt to shatter it effectively, called it
"inhumanly perfect." It was the use
of that end-running formation in ear
lier years and the perfection of the for
ward pass in this later day that has
brought such amazing success to all of
But the most famous play which
Heisman has devised is Called the
"Heisman shift," which he first trdtted
out in 1910. The formation of the rush
line and of the backs is a gigantic "T."
When the signal for play is made the
whole team moves as one piece of
mechanism. All of the team's, play is
made from that shift. It has bewildered
and baffled every team that has tried
to break it up. The play starts with
the whole team back of the line and
with the J'T" whirling like a chip in a
Heisman, during the past eight years
of his career, has had many opportuni
ties to coach some of the biggest col
leges in America. Big financial induce
ments have been made. But Heisman
remained at Georgia Tech. And there,
through 1915, 1916 and 1917 came to
him his greatest glory.
Through those three years Georgia
Tech mingled in 25 gridiron duels with
out suffering defeat. The three elevens
rolled up the amazing total of 1129
points an average of 45 points r -game
while its rivals could score only
61. The 1916 Georgia Tech team, play
ing against Cumberland, won by the
wonderful score of 222 to 0.
The "Golden Tornado" team of Geor
gia Tech in 1917 played and won
nine games. It ro-led i p 491 points
against 17 by its foes and numbered

land. Or. The editor has been unable up to
date (October 14) to secure even one copy
of the Monday's edition having the C. & t
columns. They were published in a late
edition of that issue. We will pay a good
price for two or three papers, of Monday,
October 7, edition ha ving the columns in.
I'nder the heading "Solutions" we give the
description of the problems published in that
Js it customary in composing problems to
have the pieces so arranged that a check is
or must be used for the key? A. J. Carv
er, Leland, Or. No.1 It is an unwritten law
among the authors that a check should not
begin a problem, owing to its aggressive na
gressive nature. The solver is at liberty to
do the problem in any way he pleases, pro
vided it is a correct one. White says that
there are good reasons for excluding checks
as initial moves, as it is the aim of the
composer to achieve his end by the least ob
vious methods, and though there are plenty
of problems where an attack is the correct
method, yet that attack should be more or
less hidden. A check is the most aggressive
of attacks, and the fact that thhe checking
piece is itself offered up does not atone for
it, since Blacks available replies are nar
rowed considerably, and variety suffers In
consequence. We have published some very
pretty problem with check keys, but the
consensus of opinion is against their use.

An end game worth studying. From Se

rook on KB7, knights on K3 and KB4.
White with the move can not win. If white
keeps his rook KB file, black need only
guard his KB8 by moving Q-Q6, QKt4 or
QR3. If white moves rook of the file black

tack, with chances of a stalema:., or of a
