Columbus, Ohio, May 2.Columbus hud a
narrow escape from a shutout In yesterday's
game "with the millers Hank Gehring was on
the slab for the ylsitors and was a tough
proposition for the willow wielding senators,
who failed utterly to buifch their hits on him
Davis and Ojler saved the millei gunner con
siderable woik and worry by their snappy field
ing. Had it not been for an error by Captain
Fox on a difficult catch in the eighth Inning
the game would have ended with the score 4
to 0 In favor of the visitors As it was the
score of 4 to 1 looks good to the Kelly crowd.
In the first inning "'Lefty" Davis and the
five who followed him In the batting order fell
upon Berlnger and pounded him for three
scores. Davis led off with a drive to right,
Sullivan biffed the leather so high that he had
plenty of time to beat it to first and Jim
Hart sacrificed Then Greiuinger popped one
back of first. Just out of Bruce's reach, and
Davis and Sullivan scored Greminger went to
second when Graham whanged out a nice one
and started foi third on a fly by Fox, The Ball,
thrown to head him off, struck him and bounced
to the senators bench, while Greiuinger gal
loped across the home plate.
This ended the miller scoring till the fourth
when Graham made second on a hot liner,
which Hulswltt stopped, but threw over Kihm,
and came home on Fox's sacrifice and a long fly
by Oyler. In the first, with two out, Cy Coulter
and Pickering singled, but Hulswltt, Columbus'
star batsman, was meat for Foi. and Hart and
the side was retired without a score. Gehring
did some steady work in the fourth. Coulter
opened with a safe one and Kihm followed with
& Bingle Hulswitt flew to Davis and Coulter
made third Then Gehring got in his deadly
work on Bruce and the senator popped an easy
one to Oyler. Kihm was cut off by Xeager and
Oyler while trying to pilfer a sack and the
side went out with Wrigley at bat.
Coulter got another safe one in the sixth
With one man out, but Kihm fanned and Huls
wltt, forcing Cy at second, sent the senators
to the field. In the seventh Ryan reached third
n Graham's fielding and Yeager's error, but
Hank prevented a score by fanning Berger. In
the eighth Coulter captuied the home team's
lone score by striking a hot grounder which
Fox missed and coming home on Kihm's three
bagger into right Bruce fell to Oyler at the
Start of the ninth, but Hart had to make a
bare-handed catch of Andy's wide throw to
etop Wrigley Rvan doubled to left, but Berger
Struck to Gehring and the game was over.

Journal Special Service.
Montreal, May 2.By a vote of 300 to 12
the Montreal Amateur Athletic association, the
most prominent body of its kind In Canada,
has decided In favor of allowing Its members
to play with and compete against professionals
in all sports without losing their standing as
amateurs. It is expected that the decision will
affect athletics not only in Canada, but in the
United States and England, as well. The ques
tion aiose as to whether two professional la
crosse teams from Ontario would be admitted
into the league In which the M. A. A. A. is promi
nently Identified, and this was the latter body's
method of answering the question.
Those who voted for the somewhat radical
resolution are of the opinion that it is the
one method by which amateur athletics could
be purified and put upon an honest basis. "By
It," stated Sam Bay lis, the mover of the
resolution, professionalism will not be intio
duced into the M. A. A. A., but banished.
What Is required Is a weeding out of the 'pro
fessional amateur The professional will now
become an employee only. Engaged on con
tract and subject to penalties he will have
no status in the association. If any member of
the M. A. A. A. wishes to play lacrosse, foot
ball, cricket, hockey or tennis for money he
may do so openly and above board, by sending
his resignation to the M. A. A. A. It will no
longer be necessary for him to take his salary

The competitors spent the night as the guests
of Foreign Minister Skouzes at Marathon. Clas
sified by nationality, the runners consisted of
26 Greeks, 7 BrJtonB, including Canadians and
Australians, 5 Americans, 8 Germans, 2 French
men, 2 Italian, 3 Swiss., 1 Belgian, 1 Dane and 2
The contestants started in three ranks, one
meter apart, at exatfly 8- o'clook. The weather
was splendid, the thermometer showing .80% de
grees in the shade. A mounted officer"'rode in
front with a chronometer and acted as time
keeper. Hundreds of vehicles of all kinds fol
lowed the contestants.
The race started at a hot pace. At the tenth
kilometer Frank was leading, followed by a
Bohemian, Bechensky. At the fifteenth kilome
ter Frank was still ahead but Daly, Ireland had
taken second, with Blake slowly creeping up. At
the twentieth kilometer, which was passed at
4 10 p.m., Blake wfts leading, grandly running
a magnificent race, and followed by Frank and
Sherrlng. The latter was slowlv gaining on his
opponent. At the twenty-sixth kilometer the
course was uphill. Beginning the last ten kilo
meters of the race, Frank was again leading, but
obviously distressed Sherrlng was second and
Blake third. The time at this point was 4 40
o'clock. Sherrlng was running magnificently but
Daly had stopped to rest. Petri had dropped out
on account of stomach trouble.
Took His Time.
Sherring now speedily took the lead, followed
by Swamberg and "Frank. When he found hint
self well ahead, Sherrlng dropped Into a walk,
giving himself great reserve for the final spurt.
Whenever he saw bis opponents approaching he
resumed running, and in this manner tired them
all except Swambeig and Frank, who always
were a good distance behind. Sherrlng jokod
and laughed with his Greek attendant and re
turned the salutes of the cherlng crowds.
A cannon shot ammunced the arrival of the

of eminence overlooking Athens was wonderful.

AT CHICAGO "U"
Drastic Scholastic Qualifications
Demanded of the Midway
Athletes by Faculty.
Journal Special Service.
Chicago, May 2.Having adopted the confer*
ence reform rnles, abolished the training table*
done away with the big games with Michigan
and Wisconsin, shortened the schedule and ac
cepted the one-year residence rule, the Univer
sity of Chicago is about to deliver another body
blow to the football of the past. In a few days
it will raise the scholarship eligibility qualifi
cations so that they will be one and a half ticca
as hard as at present.
This recommendation was made by the board
of physical culture and athletics and has been
discussed by the university council and senate.
It is held to be in line with the recent confer
ence rulings that athletes be required to taks
full work. Action Is to be taken at meetings
of the faculty and council.
A man is now eligible for athletic competition
if he is carrying at a passing grade two "ma-
jor" studies (those which call for recitation*
four or five times a week), has no conditions and
has had no "flunks" during the two previous
quarters. The new ruling will provide that a
man must have nine major credits before he is
eligible for competition that he must be carry
ing three studies at a passing grade thruout the
season and that he must continue carry
ing this number of studies after the season. Any
letdown In work will debar him from Bbsf*
It is not probable that the ruling will go intS)
effect until fall, but If it does it will deplete
the track and baseball teams to such an extend
that it would be almost useless to complete ths
schedules. Because of the fact that athletics
requires from two to three hours' work a day,
while many of the men are forced to work a
part or aU their way thru school, hardly half of.
