Hurdles in First Event of Penn Carnival
Penn Captures Relay Event,
With French Runners Fourth
tegendre, of Georgetown, Sets New Carnival Mark
in Discus Throw and Bartells Lowers Javelin
Record; 10,000 Watch Athletes Despite Rainfall
___ By Jack Masters
-*PHILADELPHIA, April 29.?One world's record, one intercollegiate
,nd four carnival marks were written info athletic history at the twenty
rtwrnth annual carnival of the University of Pennsylvania, held here this
?ftarooon at Franklin Field.
Not since the inception of the intercollegiate classic has the opening
?ay supplied so many thrills and a record crowd of ten thousand persons
disregarded rain, which fell intermittently, to witness the shattering of
tn? records. **>r?-_-___
Honors fell fast ?vnd unexpectedly
?on the representatives of our Insti- ,
tntions of learning, but Dame Fortune
iiniled most sweetly upon August
Desch, the Newark boy attending Notre
Almost before the anxious specta?
tors realized that the games had
started. Desch had stepped over the
440-vard high hurdles 2-6 of a second
faster than any man had ever turned
His time tras 53 4-5. i*-5 faster than
the ?ark established here in 1920 by
Jack Watt, of Cornell. Incidentally
Desch equalled his mark in this heat
last year, but toppled the obstacle.
First Event on the .Program
The timber-topping event was the
f.rst on the program, and what with the
din of wild cheering and music hardly
?nv of the spectators heard the bark
cf'the gun which sent nine men over
the long hurdle route.
Desch jumped into fourth place and
stayed there until the eighth obstacle
was reached, when he drew up oven
Kith Pittinger, Ohio State. Topping
the next and last hurdle in faultless
style, Desch went into the stretch with
three yards to spare and won eased up.
Following Desch's achievement, the*
Lansdale High School team " was
clocked in 3.36 4-5 In winning the Phila?
delphia suburban title. The former
carnival record was 3.89 3-5, made in
1918 by the Cheltenham team, which
tinishe?! second to-day.
An ?ther relay mark went by the
board a half hour later when Hunt?
ington High, of Boston, won the inter
scholastic medley relay championship,
clipping 3 3-5 seconds from the pre?
The new time was 4:39 2-5.
The only intercollegiate record was
shattered by G. Dandrou, Massachu?
setts Institute of Technology who
won the SB-pound weight throw with
s heave of 32 feet Zl'z inches, break?
ing the record made in 1916 by White
of Syracuse by 10% inches. The rain
scaked throng vsetlted back to enjoy
a feast at the expense of time, and
it had only a few moments to wait,
for again the announcer megaphoned
the tidings that other records had
This time it was Bartells, of Penn?
sylvania, and Legendre, of George?
town, who received the plaudits of the
crowd. Bartells boosted the carnival's
javelin record from 163 feet 6% inches
to 168 feet 11% inches, and Legendre
threw the discus 126 feet 8 inches,
The former mark was 122 feet 3 inches,
French Team Fourth -
The international sprint medley re
,'aj rece, as it developed, was not the
feature of the program, but it resulted
in a highly satisfactory manner to at
least 98 per cent of those present. The
French University entry was killed off
by the terrific sprinting of Pennsyl?
vania, Lafayette and Princeton, which
teams finished in the order named,
with the tricolor-bedecked athletes a
close fourth. The time was 3:314-5.
Maxam led off for Penn over the
qnarter-mile route, and during this leg
of the race Fery, the 400-meter Frenen
champion, could get up no closer than
Gill, of Penn, held the lead handed
him ly Maxam, and kept Biget, the
French entry, also in third position.
Williams, of Lafayette, rushed into the
lead at the start of the second 220
with McFadden, Penn. and Seurin, of
France, following in order.
The last leg over the half-mile route
was a jog for Earl Eby, of Penn, the
national champion at that distance
The blond flyer finished eight yards
ahead of Crawford, of Lafayette, whe
in turn led Conover, of Princeton, b>
twenty-five yards! Gouillieoux, France
was almost at the Tiger athlete's shoul?
Walter Higgins, of Columbia, the
two-mile indoor national champion, un?
dertook to do a little more than car
reasonably be expected of a human be
ing, and as a result finished just out ol
the money in the distance medley relaj
championship of America. The Univer?
sity of Illinois won the event, wit!
Iowa State second. Penn third and Co?
lumbia fourth. The time, 10:213-5
vas only one-fifth under the world's
Higgins Makes FaBt Time
The Blue and White lead-off mar
held his own with the speedy field, a:
did Shrecker, who was the next Nev
York runner, but Lowenkopf cracked ii
toe half mile and gave Higgins th?
baton with a loss of 75 yards. Higgin;
made up 48 yards in the last mile. Th?
Columbia captain was timed in 4:19 2-E
Cordon, of Illinois, ran the distance ii
Gordon Nightingale, of the Uni
'tjrsity of West Virginia, was deprive?

U. S. Boxing Association
May Drop New Jersey
Special Di.-tpatch to The Tribune
MILWAUKEE, Anril 29.?If tho Now

, the ruling of President Walter H.
Liginger of the National Boxing* Asso?
ciation, of which New Jersey is a mem?
ber, "Tex" Rickard's dream of a mil?
lion-dollar gate next July 2 may go up
in smoke. Liginger to-day warned the
New Jersey erjmmtesion that one of the
I by-laws of the association limits the
| price for admission to boxing bouts at
"I had the matter up ?with the late
I John Smith, chairman of the New Jer
, sey commission, at the time he was
taken ill," said Liginger, "and to-day I
wrote, to the commission as?king what
authority had been received for allow?
ing Rickard to charge an outrageous
price of $50 for his Dempsey-Carpen
tier fight. If New Jersey refuses to
abide by the rule which she helped to
make, I see no other way out but to
drop the state from the association."

The National Boxing Association is
a sort of federation of boxing inter?
ests of the various states where tho
manly art is protected by law, which
was formed in this city several months
ago and to which practically nil of tho
state boards swore fealty save our
own Empire State and Massachusetts.
Tho organization was propagated by
tho International Sporting Club of this
city and the Board of Civilian Control,
W. H. Liginger, of the Wisconsin
State Boxing Commission, was elected
president of the National Boxing Asso?
ciation, and from him came the in?
formation yesterday that a limit of $15
"tops" for tho coming heavyweight
classic would be in order. Liginger
pointed out that as the New Jersey

scribed to and bound itself to the new
federation "rules the limited tariff

Rickard Makes Answer
Tex Rickard, who is promoting the
Dempsey-Carpenticr fight, dismissed
the Milwaukee bugaboo in a few curt
"I do not propose to be thwarted or
dictated to by Gavin," was all the com?
ment he would make.
Mr. Gavin, be it understood, is the

was legalized in this state less than a
It has been learned on apparently
reliable authority that Rickard, in any
probable defiance of the National

i the supreme powers of the State of

j of a new boxing commission will be in
' order to foil any outside interference
j with the big fight at this late date.
Meanwhile Rickard has reason to be
; Heve thut all his high-priced seats
: for the spectacle could be sold three
j times over. Orders (accompanied by
i cash) have almost exhausted the sup

Neil Mooney, assistant passenger
1 agent of the New York Central has
i placed one order for 400 of the $50

*The Bivouac of May the First
The muffled thud's sad thump has bent
The table's last tattoo.
No more it. stands upon its feet
The ivay it used to do.
And sadly now out in t'te. hall
1 see, with bowed-down1 head
My wife's deep anguished teardrops fall
Above a busted bed.
For like the fierce, wild hurricane
That comes with deadly blow,
Our meager furniture to gain
Swept in the yearly foe.
Twelve pieces had we, frail but fair.
Before the movers came,
But tumbling down a spiral stair
Eleven pulled up lame.
Hardy, Tilden and Johnston had to travel 30,000 miles to bring back
the Davis Cup. Which is ten times as far as Columbus had to travel to find
America. Further proof that life is growing more and more complicated
all the time.
Not the Vitamine?but the Vim
An alert correspondent writes in pooh-poohing Dr. Crilly's idea that
vitamines have anything to do with Western supremacy in sport, man for
man, considering the East's vast numerical superiority.
"As the migrations to these shores in the seventeenth and eighteenth
centuries," writes C. 0. Y., "before the days of assisted emigration was a
selective process, bringing to us the most ambitious and most enterprising,
as well as the physically strongest, bo up to a comparatively recent period
has been the movement of our country from East to West. I myself have
seen the effects of this sifting process in towns in depleting them of their
most vigorous and intelligent men and women. There :is no speculation
or theory about this. It is a fact, which I can demonstrate from my own
Jim Sullivan'a Theo.ry
This was the theory which the late Jim Sullivan held when asked con?
cerning the Olympic games of 1912.
"America is sure to win," he said, "because our race is buil? from
the hardy, stronger and more adventurous types that had the courage to
?eck their destinies in a new world."
This same theory is now given for the remarkable showing of Western
entries, especially as applied to such games as boxing and wrestling,
where the West has furnished practically all the heavyweight champions
for twenty years.
But if Zbyszko, after throwing Stecher, tosses "Strangler" Lewis, a
new thory may be subpoenaed at any moment. For Poland is neither
famed for its vitamines nor its western immigration.
The Pitching Moves Up
An earnest bystander desires to know whether the pitching or the
i batting improves as the season advances.
On the general average it is always the pitching that moves forward.
; For example, at the end of the first ten days, there were four clubs in
j the American League and five in the National with team averages above
; .310 Nine clubs batting above .310 out of sixteen starters?will they con?
tinue to assault the pitching with any such deadly ferocity'' Not upon
your bobbed hair after the pitching arms get a few more kinks untangled
in the warming glow of a sumrner sun.
There were two clubs last year?St. Louis and Cleveland?able to
? finish above .300, and this was out of the ordinary, not to say bizarre.
j Some batsmen will, of course, improve. But we are speaking now of the
multitude at large, not the individual case.
By the middle of May the line of .400 and .450 hitters will be melting
after the manner of a snow man shoved over the rim of Gehenna.

In Stake Race!
Gallops Home in Albemarle
Purse at Havre de Grace;
Fair Mac Beats Jumpers
Special Dmvatrh to The Tribuna
HAVRE DE GRACE. Md.. April 29.?
Touch Mo Not, the Greentree Staple's
handsome big son of Celt?Dainty
Dnme, indicated that he will prove
troublesome for the cracks of the
throe-year-old division by the manier
of his performance in the Albemarle
Purse, the mile-and-seventy-yard ?went,
which served as the feature of the
day's program at Havre de Grace.
His impressive victor/ and Colti
letti's horsemanship were the outstand?
ing features of a damp day's sport.
Showers fell just before the running of
the first race, and another sharp down?
pour came during the running of the
steeplechase. Form was well observed
throughout the day.
Fair Mac, ridden by the Irish rider
Brady, gathered another selling steeple?
chase for the McDaniel confederacy
when he galloped home with a handy
lead of two lengths over Miss Mc
Giggle, Bronze Eagle and five others,
all of which made the course without
mishap. Fair Mac was heavily sup?
Gus Herbil! Rowe, the Pelican Stable
and jockey Everett TIaynes had things
all their own way in the juvenile event.
Hyperbole proved easily best, after
j taking the lead at the start, and domi?
nated the running throughout.
Coltiletti captured the three-year-old
? maiden race with Princ?ss Pandora, and
I scored later with Silence.
Crumpsall outbroke his field in the
sixth, but swerved and caused general
confusion. Uranium was toppled over
and Miss Rankin was eliminated from
contention. Toss. Up took command
soon after the run around the final
turn, and held sway for the remaining

The question of a site for the

Special Dispatch to The Tribune
DERBY, Conn., April 29.?Colum?
bia's varsity eight to-day rowed twice
on the Housatonic in practice for to?
morrow's regatta with Yale. In the
morning diill the two eights went over
the course, using a 26 stroke. Coach
Jim Rice calif 1 it a mere paddle. Dur?
ing the last quarter-mile the Colum?
bias drove the stroke up to 36. This
was a, keen surprise to the Yale boat
house contingent, for they had figured
that the lank Columbias would row a
low, long stroke.
This afternoon the two Columbia
eights held their final practice pre?
vious to the regatta with Yale, pad?
dling upstream a half-mile and racing
back. They registered a 36 clip and
covered the quarter-mile in 1 minute
and 13 seconds. Rico said that both
crews rowed well.
The two Yale eights w<?re sent out
by Coach Guy Nickalls this evening,
paddling upstream three-quarters ai a
mile and rowing back together. For
the last quarter-mile they lifted fthe
stroke to 34, the first eight leading *i'he
second by a half length. The time was
unofficially caught by several specta?
tors at 1 minute and 15 seconds.
Nickails said that he* was nloased
with the showing of both crew?. In
the second eight Haldeman aral
Jenckes exchanged seats, Jenckes go?
ing to No. 5 and Haldeman tc No. 8,
for purposes of improved weight dis?
tribution. Jenckes yesterday succeeded
Larry Gardner, who was taken ill.
Weather conditions were slow to
i night, a light rain falling and a sharp,
cold wind sweeping upstream.
Referee Billy Meikleham will shoofc
the second varsity eights away to?
morrow at 4:45 o'clock, daylight sav?
ing time, for the opening race, and the
first crews half an hour later for the
chief event. An observation train will
follow both races.
