Chicago Star Defeats Lieut.
Langer in Race at Pel
By A. C. Cavagnaro
William (Bud) Wallen, representing
the Great Lakes Naval Training Sta?
tion, of Chicago, stamped himself as an ;
athlete worthy of possessing the 880- ]
yard swimming championship in suc-j
cessfully defending his title in the r.n- ;
nual competition, which was part of:
the water carnival at the Pelham Bay
Naval Training Station yesterday.
Wallen was compelled to show his
best speed in defeating Lieutenant
Ludy Langer, of Camp Gordon, Georgia,
by one yard in one of the most gruel?
ling races on record. So bitter was the
tight between the two men for the title
that in crossing the finish line in 11
minutes 21 1-5 seconds Wallen estab?
lished a new American record. The
previous mark of 11:27 3-5 was to the,
credit of Norman Ross, of San Fran- I
cisco, now in the aviation service, made
in Honolulu Bay last September.
Harold E. Krueger, from Hawaii, fin- j
ished third, almost fifty yards in the.
wake of Lieutenant Langer, while Leo
Giebel, unattached, was fourth. Giebel
killed his chance for the championship .
early in the race when he swam out of
the course and before he could regain
his tracks he had lost a margin of 100;
Race Thrills Spectators
It was a thrill throughout for the ?
spectators who witnessed Wallen and
Lieutenant Langer fight their duel.
Wallen, with a smooth and powerful
trudgeon-crawl stroke, swept into the ;
lead at the outset, and for the first lap
had close company in his three other,
.rivals. After turning the 110-yard
stake, however, the race developed into
a tussle between the defending chain- !
pion and Lieutenant Langer.
Wallen held the fore position I
throughout the race, but at no time
did he enjoy a comfortnble margin
over his soldier rival. The Chicago
sailor scented the hard task in front \
of him. In taking the turns Lieutenant
Langer had the advantage of his rival. :
Although Wallen would gain slightly :
on the run down to the next take-off
Moat, Lieutenant Langer would shorten
the gap at the turns.
Passing the 440-yard mark in 5:34
Wallen held an advantage of four
yards, but he was using every ounce
of speed to ward off his opponent. The
final 220 yards found both men sprint?
ing along at breakneck speed. Lieuten?
ant Langer, who is known for his
wonderful sprinting ability, came on
strongly during the final fifty yards,
and although he managed to get to
Wallen's feet, he was never able to
Duke P. Kahanamoku, the Hawaiian
speed marvel, suffered his first defeat
since his local invasion, but although
beaten, he performed in a manner that
waft most astonishing. The Duke fin?
ished second in the 110-yard invitation
handicap race, losing by one foot to
Harold E. Krueger, another Hawaiian,
who is touring the country with him.
Kahanamoku strated from scratch an*'
covered the distance ir the remarka?
bly fast time of 55 4-5 seconds.
Although there is no time on record
for this distance, it was announced
that these figures had never been ap?
proached in competition. It was the
opinion among the spectators that the
course was undoubtedly short, as the
two floats that marked the distance
were laid at low tide. Therefore, with
the rising tide it was assumed that
the floats had been pulled closer to?
Krueger had an eight-second allow?
ance, while J. W. Newnon, Pelham Bay, '
the other starter, had fourteen seconds. '
Kahanamoku literally crawled up on his .
opponents by leaps and bounds, and
at the 100-yard mark had passed New?
non and was within several yards of j
Krueger. The Duke never let up in his
efforts and was practically at Kruger's
side when the latter touched the finish?
The third member of the visiting
Honolulu party, Clarence E. Lane, also
placed a victory to his credit. Lane
started in the 110-yard handicap race
and, although giving generous allowance
to his rivals, won as he pleased.
The triple oar swim, indulged in by j
Lane. Krueger and Kahanamoku, gave ;
the spectators an opportunity to see i
the wonderful swimming ability of the !

Duke Kahanamoku, Hawaiian Swimmer
rHE famous water champion has been caught in iction below by The Tribune's
camera man. The centre picture (above) shows him at full speed with the "crawl
stroke," while the three photographs below illustrate the use of the hands a?id legs in
this method of swimming. On the left and right the Honolulan is posing /or his picture
and in the central oval his smile tells how fine is the ivater.
Title of Duke Merely
Wished on Kahanamoku
Name Was Handed to Noted
Swimmer by Some
One in Hawaii
By Louis Lee Arms
Duke P. Knhanamoku, of Honolulu,
isn't actually a duke, as a surprising
number of persons seem to believe; he j
has no ducal estate and has never I
posed in a frock coat with his arm on I
the back of the duchess's Louis Quinze
chair. The name Duke was handed to
him by some one in Hawaii who has as?
similated the American proclivity for
simplifying long and cumbersome given
in Hawaii it is the custom to name
the children sometimes after moun?
tains or lakes, which would be all right
if th?' said names did not consume most !
of the alphabet and show an irresist- '<
ible desire to double up on O's and E's ;
and other vowels that were lying j
around loose at the time the mountain
or the lake was titled. An average
Hawaiian name printed in type twelve ,
inches wide would extend from Wall
Street at Broadway to the Aquarium j
at the Battery.
Mr. Kahanamoku had one of those!
names that could only be transported j
by slow,freight, so some one hit upon j
the expedient title of duke and the
"Dook" he has remained to all and ;
Can Play and Swim Ragtime .
The "Dook" is as dark as a stove- j
pipe lid, with flashing white teeth and
great ability to perform either upon j
the water or the Hawaiian guitar. He'
can play ragtime upon this harmonious
instrument and he can swim ragtime,
too. Watching him the other night at
Brighton Beach, we reached the conclu- ?
?ion that he would have to swim in I
slow, moving ballads, if he expected
anybody around these parts to catch |
him in the water. It might be done
with a police boat, hut we are not sure. !
Kahanamoku has a long, honorable ?
and excessively fast recorr? in the;
water. Some years ago he was taken [
in hand by (?rotge Kistler, who was
the swimming coach at the l'niversity:
of Pennsylvania and who perceived in !
the then crude Pacific Islander the I
making! ?f a great swimmer. At that j
time Kahanamoku did not know form,
which counts so vitally in all kinds of
athletics, but he has learned it since.
?Still we were les* impressed by his
swimming form in his first New York
appearance than by his speed. Ho
swims smoothly enough and convey?
thji iiaj}re8?ion of .having enormous
power, but to our mind he is less grace?
ful than some of the leading Amei'ican I
swimmers. Kahanamoku is heavy- !
legged and heavy-chested, which gives
him in the water less of the eel-like
grace than is possessed by Ludy Lan- !
ger, of Los Angeles, or Hal Vollmer, of
Has Perfect Stroke
But mechanically Kahanamoku's
stroke is perfection, with a conserva?
tion of energy in unimportant move?
ments and a concentration of power in
those strokes and kicks which make for
speed. It is apparently the paradox of
perfect form which yet manages to just
An indication of, the way Kaliana- j
moku has refined his style may be.seen j
in his breathing. Many of our fastest i
swimmers turn their heads too far to ?
one side when inhaling?the exhaling, j
of course, is done under water?and i
thus lose something of direction, espe
cially in short sprints, and thereby :
The "Dook" scarcely turns his head
to une side at all when breathing, thus ?
conserves muscle and swims straight
as a crow flics. It. was intere'sting ;
to note in the Hawaiian's appearance ;
here that Kahanamoku, Lane and Krue- ]
ger never swam one inch off the course.
Their metiod of breathing has some
thing to do with this.
Nor docs Kahanamoku tuck his head !
far under water when at the top of :
his spurt. He "rides" high and his
face is but pnrtly submerged, his body
offering therefore the least possible re
His foot strokes are poetry of mo- \
lion, a steady, even tattoo that buoys
his body well up until he is in the
horizontal position that is essential
to spee?1. With powerful arm sweeps
that seem actually to hold much in
reserve Kahanamoku propels himself
through the water with the precision
of our side-wheeliiTg ferryboats.
Holder of Many Records
Kahanamoku has held so many rec?
ords that a compilation of them all
would consume great space. He is at
present the 50, 100 and 150-yard inter?
national champion and is constantly
wetting new records. While he has
been in New York City less than one
week he already has smashed several
records, swimming the 100 metres at
the Exposition Pool Friday night in
'II _-5 seconds, which is faster by one
second than his own international lig
At Brighton Beach, too, he broke
the 125-yard rec?>rd by a full four sec
mds, but, it is ye?, to he known whether
the Amateur Athletic Union will sanc?
tion these mnrks. Less than the
requisite number of watches were held
on at least one. event. He has done the
fifty yards in 23 seconds flat, several
times, which is as near as any one enji
come to flying in the water.
Monster Red Cross Meet
For Szvimmers This Week
The outstanding feature of the com- i
ing week in water sports is the monster !
Red Cross carnival to be held Friday i
and Saturday in the Inlet Terrace i
Lagoon at Belmar, N. J., under the |
combined auspices of the New Columbia
Hotel A. C. and local Women's S. A.
In the men's events will take part ,
Honolulu's three famous stars. Duke
KahanamoKu, Harold Krugor and
Clarence Lane, as well as all the
other famous watermen who have been
competing around here in recent meets,
while in the women's contests will be
seen the greatest aggrcation of fair
champions and record holders ever
brought together in this country.
The list of entrants includes, among
others, the Misses Claire Galligan,
Charlotte Boyle, Lucy Freeman anil
Josephine Bartlett, of New York;
Dorothy Burns, of Los Angeles; Olga
Dorfner, Gertrude Artelt, Elizabeth
Ryan and Helen Pennypacker, of
Philadelphia; each and every one a
title holder. The Hawaiians have
cancelled a previous engagement in
order to be r.t Belmar both days.
The Detroit A. C. has set September
7 as the ?late for the women's national
long-distance swimming championship
it. will stage over the usual Marathon
course around Belle lulo, and two
local girls, at least, will bid for laurels
in Miss Claire Galligan, who captured
the title in 1916, and Miss Lucy Free?
man, last year's winner. Mis? Char?
lotte Boyle is also anxious to start,
but as the 100-yard national fixture
is to be held only a few days before,
her coach is in favor of her training
exclusively for the latter event.
Charles Barfon, of the Piedmont-A.
C? of Oakland, Cal., clipped seven j
seconds from the 200-yard breast
stroke coast record last week, when he
won the Pacific A. A. U. championship !
at the distance in 3 minutes 1 1-5
Herbert Topp, the new sprinting star
of the the Chicago A. A., who has to
his credit a 50-yard victory over the
flying Clarence Lane, of Honolulu, will
be a contender for the national A. A.
U. 100-yard outdoor championship at
Birmingham, Ala., on August 24.
Negotiations are under way to secure
the entry of Misa Thelma Payne, of the
Multonomah A. A. A., of Portland, Ore.,
for the women's national high-diving
title contest shortly to be decided at
Rye. N. Y. Miss Payne recently won
the springboard crown in Portland and
defeated her teammate, Mrs. Constance

Skeeters Score Easy
Victory Over Newarks
Opportune batting by the Skceters
and the effective pitching by Pitcher
Dick McCabe enabled the Jersey City
team to triumph over the Newark
Bears yesterday by a score of 7 to 3.
The former Red Sox twirler held the
Bruins to six hits, while Jersey City
hammered the benders of Ross for
thirteen safe blows. Barbare clouted
out a pair of doubles, while Breen
connected for a triple and a single.
Cooney also hit well, making a trio of
singles in his five chances.
Jersey City scored in the first inning
on Barbare's two-bagger and singles by
Whitehouse and Bluhm. In the fifth,
however, the Bears got the range of
McCabe's shoots and bunched four hits,
scoring three tallies and taking the
lead. Jersey City came right back in
its half, however, with a productive
batting bee which earned it the
victory. Pitcher McCabe was permitted
to stroll. Cooney singled to right, and
Barbare sent McCabe home with his
secontl double. With Cooney on third

White First in 100-Yard Dash
A liberal handicap aided Peter J

? White had a start of six yards, arid
this advantage proved too much for
! both Fred Teschner and Phil Walter?

Teschner was nosed out by one foot'
