Interesting Article by Walter CamD
Tells of Baseball Originated in
Walter Camp, the world-known
expert on sporting matters, hns u
very Interesting nrtlrlo on "Hnseball
In the Making" In one of the cur
rent magazines. Camp trace tip
the start of the gnmo from 1787.
when the lawg of l'rlnceton contain
ed the following reference to base
hall: "It appeared that a play at pres
ent much practiced by the muall
boys among the studentB and by the
grammar scholars with balls nnd
stick In the rear campus, the col
lege, Is In Itself low and unbecom
ing gentlemen and students; and In
asmuch as It Is attended with great
danger to the health by sudden al
ternate heatB and colds; as It tends
by accidents almost unavoidable In
that play to disfiguring and maim
ing those who are engaged in It, for
whoae health and safety as well as
improvement In study as fur as de
pends on our own exertions we are
accountable to their parents nnd lia
ble to be severely blamed by them;
and inasmuch ns there are many
amusements both more honorable
and more useful In which they are'
Indulged, therefore the faculty think
it Incumbent on them to prohibit the
students and grammar scholars from
thus tiBlng the place aforesaid.
"Dy order of the Faculty."
All the same, ball-playing was
kept up, nnil eighty years after
wards the Yale Couraut came out
With an editorial on baseball which
is very funny to read nowadays.
"We qro not an admirer of the
national game," said the Courunt.
"As to the amount of amusement to
be obtained by nils means, it Is Just
about whut might bo extracted from
a certain number of sand bags, bass
wood clubs, and cannon-balls by ed
ucated, enlightened men under other
circumstances. On the question of
bodily damage we would suggest
that the Immense Increase of acci
dent Insurance companies Ih proba
bly due to no other cause, and If the
mania does not presently cease the
country will be without able-bodied
Sarscaht claims that over two
hundred years ago the .American In
dian had n game which was a cross
between baseball and hockey. The
game Is still played by them, and a
ball and clubs are used. It Is u
rough game, and it Is nothing un
common to see several of tho play
ers lying unconscious on the ground
at the finish of a contest.

Bic Turnout Expected at Clubhouse
on Saturday Niffht All Mem
bers Should Attend.
There Is going to be n glorious
time up ut the Country Club next
Saturday afternoon and, evening,
wneii a freak golf tournament, a
"booster" dinner and an indoor
"gjmkana" will be pulled off. An
Indoor gymkana Is n new one on
most people, but Jlmmlo Dougherty
says that it will be one of hie great
est stunts ever pulled off nnywhere.
The details are being kept secret,
but enough Is known to assure the
guests and members that they will
have the time of their lives from -o'clock
in the afternoon till, mnybe,
twelve bonis later.
The freak golf tournament will he
Interesting enough for anything,
iiul the men who are In charge of
operations will certainly do nil In
their power to make the afternoon
part of tho outing ns entertaining
as possible. r -
Then after everybody has had n
good time nnd the players have In
dulged In shower baths and appear
ed once more clad In the usual Ho
nolulu fashion, an adjournment will
be made to the dinner tables, where
the "booster" banquet will be "par

the hands of a committee that knows
Just how to fix up a reoast that
will make the fortunate people who
sit down lo, eat It think that they
have dropped Into a big New York
hotel by mistake. Tho spread prom-
Ises to be the most varied one that
has evpr been set before the mem
bers of the local Country Club, or,
as a matter of fact, before any club
In the world.
After the usual toasts nnd
speeches, the cigars will be light
ed, and then the "gymkana" will
laid) hold of things. All sotIb of
games will be played, and soma of
the umusements will make the nio.it
sedute persons present give ttie
merry smile or "bust."
A live bunch of fellows will keep
things going In style, and right
through the evening singing, ama
teur clog dances, cards and other
stunts will bo under way. Some at
the singing promises to be a treat,
mid tho fact that the comic singers
will be perfectly Immune from as
sault and battery will add to the
enjoyment of the evening.
The object of the "booster" din
ner nnd the gymkana Is to get the
members of the Country Club going
a little stronger than they have been
doing lately. The wet weather has
upset many a plan for an after
noon's sport, and consequently tne
members have not been attending in
ns greut numbers as they did before
all arrangements were upset by the
heavy rains that hnve fallen, oft nnd
