For 14 Courts
National Woman Champion
of 1908 Roadv to Spendj
81,000.000 for Prpject
? By Fred Hawthorne
The dream that players of indoor
lawn tennis in this city have been
dreaming for several years namoly,
an adequate. modernly equipped build?
ing, with suitable courts, locker rooms,
etc.. within cas;* reaclting distance
from any point in lhe city -seems
about to be realized.
Several wecks ago i.i this colutnn,
and more than once, 1 have drawn at?
tention to the fact that New York, ti:e
world's greatest city and th.e very hub
of th.e lawn tennis world in this coun?
try, was almost uttevly without' tiie
proper facilities for the playing of the
An Immense l'lant
Yesterday 1 learned, from most re
liablo sources, that Mrs. ii. Barger
Wallach, national champion of 1908 and
one of tho leading figures in womenis
tennis ever since she took up the game,
;s planning to erect a building in East
Sixty-sccond Streel so large that there
will be room for fourteen indoor courts
?seven on the first and seven on the
Architects' plans for this building
have already been drawn. and these
show that^it will l>e complete to tho
most minute detail. Not only will
there bo the courts and locker rooms,,
ahower baths, smoking rooms, etc., on
the lirst two floors, but rising abovo
these will be apartments, a restaurant,
tea room and other conveniences. Stores
will also occupy part of the street level.
My sources of information lead me ]
to believe that the entire proi^ct win ,
involve more than $1,000,000, exclusive
of the ground upon which the pro
posed building wiil be erected. This is ;
owned by Mrs. Wallach, and is said to !
face on Park Avenue, extending 850
feet on one side and 200 on the other.
Just what the lighting system will
be for these courts I am unable to tell
at present, but it. is possible that the
same system as that used at the famoua
Queens Club, in London, may be fol?
lowed. ln other words, the two floors
that contain the courts may reeeive
their lighting from the sides, through
heavy glass walls, as is the case at tho
Qucens Club, thus doing away with the
necessity of artificial light, except at
Center of Indoor Game
Mrs. Barger-Wallach will be doing
more to aid the game of indoor tennis
by the erection of such a building as-,
I have described than could possibly
be accon.plished in ?any other way. j
Xew York City wouid become the cen
ter of the indoor game in Ameriea?j
indeed, in th.e world?for nowhere else
would there be such a ?complete plant.
The men's, women's and juniors' in?
door championship tournaments would
increase amazingly in importance and '
the. greatest players in tiie country
wouid be attracted here. There is no
doubt that. the tennis world would ,
thoroughly appreciate the debt it owed
to the former national woman cham.
pion by the deed of such a gift.
While the entire proposition, as I
have outlined it, is said to be whoily a
private enterprise upon the part o*'
Mrs, Wallach, there is not the slightest
?doubt as to her priniary purpose in
planning such a building, and that is to
advance the welfaro of the indoor ,
While anything like naming a defi
lite date for the completion of con?
struction work in these troublous times :
of labor is a practicai impossibility, I (
understand that Mrs. Wallach hopes to
have the tennis building in use toward
th? latter part of next winter.

N ALL C-AIRNESS
* * By J" W. O. M'GEEHAN
SENATOR KNUTE NELSON (Hay ban from Minneaota) riscs to
suggesfc that ihe shortnge ol' print paper might ho roliovcd by !
abolishing the sporting pages. "The newspaper otight lo eliminate
the sporting news, and 1 am sure we all could pet along better,"
says Senatcr Knute (No, it i; not pronounced Nut), Nelson.
Just a rnirute, Senator. Tt is a matter of fact that the Congressional
Record consumes quite as much white paper as the combined sportinp'
pages of tho United States, and that the Senator himself has used quite
as much white paper as had been used in recording the sterling perform
ances of Tyrus Raymond Cobb, of the Detroit Tigers. Also, many a Con
gressman, single handed, lias used more paper than the sport writers have
consumed in setting down the last season performancea of "Babe" Ruth.
iate of the Bost< n Red Sox a.-.d now of the New York Yankees. T submit
?hat no Congressman is competent to pass upon whether paper saving
should stait with thc Congressional Record or with the sporting pages.
Congressmen in bulk ar* shy a sense of humor or the Congressional
reeord wouid have. what Shakespeare considered the soul of wit.
1 would not. niysel/, care to pass upon the relative values of mem?
bers of Congress and the subjects of the sporting pages. For instance,
the late lamented Roan-.er war. not what one would call a beautiful horse,
but he was better looking than any Congressman 1 ever have met, and
he certainly was a more consistent performer. Also. "Babe" Ruth, while
not an intellectual giant. has hit the ball upon the nosc more often than
any Congressman has hit the nail upon the head. The official averages
of the American League. compiled by that best known of statisticians, \
Spalding's, will prove this. Also, 1 will gtiarantee that if the record of
"Babe" Ruth could be read into the Congressional Record the circulation
of that publication would jump t'lpr one number, and a lot of people who
never have rcad the Record would read that part of it and treasure it as
Ku piece of current, literature worthy of presevvation.
One would gather from Senator Nelson's attitude that Congressmen
do not read the sporting pages. Maybe that is what is the matter with
Congress. The Washington Bascball Club always has complained of lack
of support, It might do some of thc Congressmen a lot of good if they
would get out this summer and watch, Walter Johnson put them across
the plate. Some of thc solons might proiit enough by the spqetaele to
put an idea across once in a while. But then Walter Johnson has some?
thing to put across, and a Congressman if hc is to put an idea across
must first get an idea. That is elementary, my dear Senator.
The fair thing to do, Senator, would be to leave this matter to some
sort of plebiscite. Let the voters of Minnesota or any other state choose
between the Congressional Record and the sporting pages. Let them
. decide whether sports should be abolished or Congress abolished. J
would warn the Senator in advance as a matter of fairness?for nobody |
knows less about his constituents than a Congressman?that in this event
Babe Ruth would still be taking a healthy swing at the ball long after
Congress had abruptly ceased to loss the bull against the shuddering
The Rowing Revival
rJPHE old Poughkeepsie course, one of the finest strctches of rowing !
water in the world, will see some life again this year. Three crews !
surely will be entered, and it is possible that ten may take part in the
regatta. Thc course has been reduced from four to three miles. The
four-mile race always has exeited some heated controversy. I am one
of those who always held with Jim Rice, the Columbia coach, that, there
was nothing harmful in thc four-mile race. but there have been plenty of
experts who bitterly opposed the long race, including Major' Herbert
Reed, who .has been battling consistently to have tho length of the course
It has beeu my contention that as much energy can be burned in a
sprint as is consumed in a long race. Tn many a melodramatic finish on
the Poughkeepsie course the oarsmen have dropped exhausted at the end
of a hotly cont.est.ed race. Only it. was always the losers who drooped
like wilted lilies. I recall the time that rawboned crew from Stanford j
Lniversity, rowing no particular stroke and churning up thc Hudson to
thc disgust of all thc experts, came within a fraction of a length of win- '
ning the regatta. After that performance the visitors rowed themselves
back to their clubbouse, not having the funds to hire a launch.
The big rowing event this year will be the American Uenley on the
Schuylkill. Invitation has been extended to every university in the
country. If the response expected is received there should be crews !
representing every seetion of the country, and the American'Hcnley will
be developed into the greatest rowing event ever staged. The winning
crew at this event certainly would be an ideal unit to rcpresent the'
United States in the Olympic games.
'pilE resignation of August Herrmann as chairman of the National Com?
mission is scheduled to go into effect, on February II. The genial
Garry abandoning some of his traditional geniality so"me time back de?
clared that he was leaving the commission flat o:i that date whether a
successor was appointed or not. At thc current writing Ban Johnson,
president of the American League, and John Heydler, president of the
National League, who must make the decision, have arrived at no con
clusion whatsoever regarding a new chairman.
Either the National Commissioi 'H be without a chairman or Garry !
will be prtvailed upon to resume his emporary chairmanship." Garry !
? is pained because it has been maintained that he should bo replaced
Nobody is opposed to the Burgomeister of Cincinnati on personal
! grounds. Garry has plenty of friends in sports, and his connection with !
, baseball has been entirely to his credit, but the fact that lm is a club :
I owner automatically bars him from the position of chairman of thc '?
; National Commission. He is a vitally interested party, which prevents
him from holding a position that is judicial in character, and Garry
should have the good sense to realize this.
It ie impossible to forecast what conclusion may bc reached in regard
to tho chairmanship, for nobody can fathom the weird, inscrutable mind
of a baseball magnate. A strong chairman would do much for the im?
provement of tho game. To a man on the fence it is a matter of con
stant amazement that the baseball magnates cannot see that their con
: stant ^uarrels are jeopardizing the money they have invested. The thing :
j that saves the game always is that the game itself is clean.
! Johnson and Dempsey
\ gOMEBODY writes to inquire whether or not Jack Demsey would have
j a chance with Jack Johnson at his best. It is like asking what chance
Joe Stecher would have against the late Hercules in catch-as-catch-can
no holds barred. It is a matter of opinion. Mino is that Jack Dempsey
j would have been able to flatten the "Big Smoke" in short order, even with
; the Senegambian at his best.
While Dempsey is in no sense a military gent, be. boxea with the
military axiom m mind, that a strong offensive needs no defense In
other words if you knock your adversary for a goal in the first round
you do not have to worry about blocking any of his punches in the
second round Johnson was the greatest of the defensive fighters, but
Dempsey certainly would have clipped him early, not as easily as he
chpped Willard at Toledo, but early enough.
However tho question is one that Tammany Young would call purely
academic. Johnson is through with the ring, though he does not know t

the mogulsin charge of the sport of kings in this vicinity are pre

fact, the racing men were not prepared for the intens* interest in racing '

their season, fearmg unsettled conditions following the war
Now the racing magnates, too, are admitting that the demand for

Deapite the fact that he had been
sick lrom Monday to Thursday, Captain
Van Slyck participated in the contest,
and althoufrh he was closely guarded
he managed to drop in one b&sket
from the tloor, and showed his usual
accuracy from thc 1'oui line. getting
ten out of thirteen trics from thc 15
foot mark. This proficiency enabled
him to regain the lead in individual
scoring from Portcr. of Cornell. Van
Slyck now has 53 points to his credit,
while the Cornell star has 51,
Mike Sweeney, thc- vetcran crack for
ward of the Penn team, is rapidly com
ing into his own, and in two games hc
has totaled 25 poinis. Like Van Slyck,
he has shown an exceptionally kcen
eye for the net from the foul mark. To
date he has seventeen l'ouls to his
credit out of twenty chances.
ln thc matter of field goals, Hynson,
of Princeton, leads the" field with
twelve, closely followed by Portcr, of
Cornell, and Opie, of Princeton, who
have scored elevon each. Molinet, of
Cornell. has registered 'en baskets
from the tloor in four games.
Danny McNichol was another who
came into his own in thc Y/ale-Pcrm
game. This fellow is without doubt
the best guard in t'ne league and one
of the best in the colleges of tho coun?
try. It was due to his great playing I

Lining Up His
Yankee Manager Anxious
lo Have AH in Fold Be?
fore Chicago Conference
By W. J. Macbeth
Manager Miller Huggins, of the
Yankees, will set out this morning
on a still hunt through the Eastern
and Middle Western states with the
idea of lining up all his talent before
the big Chicago conference next week. !
The mite manager is hopeful of effect- j
ing certain trades he has in view dur?
ing thc pow-wow in the Windy City.
He appreciates the greater value oT
bartering material when it is under
contract and as but one serious hold
out has developed among his cohorts
feels conlident that the main rank and j
file will be in line by the week end
It is possible that owing to the quick
action demanded Huggins's scouts
may be called to his assistanc
Connery has always marshal
boys from the Pacific Coas
Kelley, whose headquarters are in
Baltimore has within a short radius
a number of very important athletes,
including Bob Shawkey and Wilson
Fewster still unsigned. More than a
dozen of the Yankees, and these the |
most important, have already been
gathered bogether for the impending !
The capitulation of such redoubtable j
stars as Babe Ruth and Herbert Thor
mahlen should have a ; ood effect on
the men still without the pale. Colonel
Huston declared recently that with a"
single o.xception a few hundred dollars
would adjust. all the salary dilFerenccs.
He was not count ing in his surmise
J. Franklin Baker, of course. who hr.d
announced his perennial retirement
and who refused to hearken to the
wiles of Huggins last week.
The unsigned Yankees aro more dis
gruntled at the American League and
the National Commission than with
their employers, who have always in
clined to liberal policies in salary inar
ters. They conslder as rank injustice
the holding up by the commission of
that portion of the worid's series
money that should have been divided
among thc members of the third place
club of the Aiiieriran League. Indeed,
it is said tiiat several are contempiat
ing legal action against the commis?
sion jointly nnd severally, for the sum
witheld under protest of the Detroit
club. Colonels Ruppert and Huston are
in a position to guarantec to their
young men payment in full of the
worid's series money pending a court
decision in the celebrated Carl Mays
injunction case. With this guarantee
Huggins should have most of the con?
tracts gathered before he reaches
The attorneys of the Yankees are
practically ready to move for imme
.diate trial of the Mays injunction
squabble. It is hoped that this suit
can be disposed of b<nor" tiie end of
the month. Huggins, of course, is
anxious lo have thc status of .Mays
determined before the opening of tiie
championship season as he is depend
ing upon the flinger of the subway ball
as anchor man of his pitchir.g "staff.

Three Amateurs Tie
For Lead in Title
David McAndless jr., ol' Chicago, the
national title holder; Edward W.
Gardner, four times champion, ar.d
Francis S. Appleby, the Columbia
student, enter upon ".he final mmches
of the Eastern Class A 18.2 balkline
championship tournament undefeated.
Their performanee with the cue and
ivory orbs in the competitions at
the Amateur Billiard Club. of New
York. have been phenomenal.
The fact that three players should
stand tied for the title i" the finals is
most unusual. Their high tigures are
similar to those counted by Calvin
Demarcst in the fcreat tournaments of
a decade ago. In thi* respect Mc?
Andless particularly is showing his
mettle. His average of 27 8/11, made
in his match against Clarkson, tha
former Boston Athletic Association
star, and his run of 122 against Trump,
of the Pittsburgh Athletic Club, have
stamped him as another marvelous ama?
teur of the order of Demarest, Chicli
Wright, the Californian, and Joseph
Mayer in the days before they joined
the professional ranks.
The question rt? to whether or not
McAndless can stand nj-air.st the rigors
of Gardner's open table play is about
to be answered.
Edgar T. Appleby and Clarkson meet
in the matinee matoh to-day. which
completes their schedule. Gardner will
meet Francis S. Appleby to-night, ar.d
the loser will meet McAndless to-mor?
