Those old rivals the Healanis and
Myrtles may have fornotten how to Bit
in a boat by next Reason. Or, at
least, they may have lost interest in
rowing as a sport, being weanJ away
from slide and oar by the delights of
dry land pastimes.
It all started with the baseball game
fn which the Healanis beat the Ala
meda crew a few days ago. This gave
the Blue and White the idea that they
could do other things besides row, so
they came out with a challenge to the
haughty Myrtles for a ball game. The
ink on the challenge was hardly dry
before Captain Frank Bechert of the
Myrtles was "knockin at the do'" ot
tering to play for chalk, money or
Marbles suggested still other possi
bilities in the line of unexplored sport
fields, so the Healanis Immediately sat
down with Spalding's Athletic Library
and Hoyle, and went over the pages
to find out what other games existed
besides rowing, baseball and marbles.
This morning A. T. Longley, the Hea
ls nlsqfflcial challenger, rang up the
'"ilellc sald Jack. "Now, about
these games that the Myrtle fellows
