SITTEBDING GETS CAPTAINCY.
Crack Third Sacker Will Lead
Georgetown Next Season.
"Billy" Sitterdlng of Richmond, for
two vear? the third baseman of the
Georgetown University base ball team, i
was chosen Inst evening as leader of the (
Blue and Gray nine lor next year. His
election was made in New York immediately
after the Fordham same and the
announcement of It was received with unstinted
approval at the college this morning.
The new captain has been at Georgetown
six years, having spent four in prep
school. He is now a member of the
sophomore class of the college. While in
prep school he, was active in almost every
branch of sport, having played on the
junior prep and the all-prop foot ball,
base ball and basket ball teams, and having
run on the track teams of both sections.
During lils career as an embryo he was j
a leader of the junior prep foot ball team I
of 1905 and of the all-prep foot ball team
of 190". He was also the manager of the
all-prep base ball team of lbtifc.
When he ente ed college in the fall of
190k it was not thought that he would be !
able to hold his own in big company because
of his diminutive size. He soon
displayed, however, that his ability as a
gridiron warrior was worthy of being
recognized, and before the foot ball season
was we'll under way he was numbered
among the regulars, being used at
quarter back and end.
During the winter lie went in for basket
ball, and although his experience in
this sport was limited he soon grasped
enough of the game to make goo 1 as a
member of the squad. Last winter he
played guard on the collegian quint and
did so well that he is being counted on to
fill some of the vacancies in the varsity
caused by graduations when that five
starts out this year.

Park the St. Stephen's nosed out the

battle by the score 5 to 4.
The game proved to be a pitcher's batle
between Umbaugh and Qovannatti,

irgument as he was only touched up for
Ive hits and walked three to his rival's

to be costly. ,

Without a doubt the poorest exhibition
jf base ball given In the Independence
League this season was the game between
Manhattans and Xassaus yesterday,
the score being 22 to 11 in favor
of the former. So replete with errors
and unmerciful slugging was it that more
than half of the fans left before Its completion.
From the first up to the last
man out It was a comedy of errors, and
far from a holiday game.
In the first inning four hits, one a
homer, were registered off "Shags" Rawwngs.
I,ast year that many hits in
seven innings off his delivery would have
been considered good work, but this
year everybody hits "Shags," and it is
very evident that he has entered the hasbeen
class. He has the curves he had
last year, but his speed and control are
gone, all because of the ovcruaage of
the arm when it was developing.
Necessity. it might be said, is the cause
or me development or a gooa ptaycr for
the Nassau team. Manager H. H. Shelienberger
Is this protege. Several days
ago the Nassaus were short an outfielder,
Manager Slielienberger without hesitation
donned a uniform and played in right
field. Of course his fielding and battln
were then both crude, but yesterday he
played in left and In such a manner as
to put his other fielders In the dark.
None of the spectators who attended
yesterday's game expected to witnes?
any ciroi\p or acrobatic stunts, hut, however,
they did, for in the fifth Whitmarsh
made a circus catch of SheFenberger'j
fly that would have caused any professional
gymnast to blush.

GETS DRAW VERDICT
Wild Scene of Disorder When
Decision Is Announced at
Exclusive London Club*
LONDON. May . 31.?Packey McFarland
of Chicago, aspirant to the lightweight
championship of the world, was
last night awarded a draw with Freddie
Welsh, the English lightweight title
holder, after twenty rounds of milling at
the exclusive National Sporting Club.
Referee Scott's decision created one of
the wildest scenes of disorder this aristocratic
organization ever experienced.
The official was hissed and hooted out
of the ring and even threats of violence
against his person were made. Even
those who wagered on Welsh, giving
odds of 7 to 4. joined in the demonstra
tion as the result of the unpopular ver,dict.
To everybody except the referee the
Chicago lightweight appeared to have
the contest well in hand from the first
round. It was not a thrilling fight. McFarland
appeared somewhat timid at first
and seldom led for the body. Perhaps he
was afraid of disqualification for fouling
and did not let himself out after the
fashion of American boxers. He fought
cautiously and skillfully at all times,
however. From the tenth round on he
; gave Welsh more than the Briton could
attend to. McFarland kept driving the
Englishman all around the ring, pumping
a left Jab into the face and crossing the
right to the head and wind.
McFarland put up a whirlwind finish.
His cleverness in the final rounds simply
astounded the spectators. He
maintained an impenetrable defense
while boring in on England's idol. His
footwork was simply marvelous. Before
the fight Welsh was a strong
favorite, but after the first few rounds
the betting switched to evens. After
the tenth round there no takers for the
McFarland money advanced.
This is not the first time these lightweights
have met. In Los Angeles, Ca!.,
July 4, 11H)N, McFarland and Welsh
drew after twenty-five furious rounds.
In February of the same year Paekey
earned a ten-round decision over the

hounding Welsh for another match.

AUTO SPEED DEMONS
SMASH OED RECORDS
Oldfield Lowers the American
Speedway Marks for Both
Mile and Kilometer.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., May 31.?In
slashing: races at the Indianapolis speedway
yesterday new records were set for
the national championships in stock car
classes, to be contested annually. Barney
Oldfield with a Benz broke the American
speedway records for the mile and the
kilometer, and Ray Harroun, driving a
Marmon, topped the time for fifty miles
for oars of 231 and 300 cubic inches displacement.
An enormous crowd cheered the driv- i
ers on to desperate feats of speed, and :
companies of militia were pressed hard !
to control the eager spectators, who j
overflowed the grandstands onto the field,
straining for a near view of the drivers.
Oldflejd cut the mile speed record down
from 3d to 33.0 seconds, and the kilometer
record from 23.7 to 21.45. He made
the former records on the Los Angeles
In a wonderrully sustained dash J
throughout the fifty-mile race Harroun
easily led his rivals. He was ahead of
the record at thirty and forty miles and
the finish. His time was 42.41. The
former record, which was 44.48, Harroun
himself had set at Atlanta.
Caleb Bragg, a Cincinnati amateur,
with a Fiat, was the third star of the
day's triumphs. He won two ten-mile
races and one five-mile free-for-all race,
and had to put up a hard fight for each
of them with Kirscher, in a Darracq.
Finishes Were Sensational.
For the national championships the
drivers raced with all their skill, forcing
their engines to the'limit of power. The
leaders were always bunched in the home
stretch, and the contests were not decided
until the front wheels of the vic|
tors actually crossed the wire of the timi
i The entries were somewhat reduced in
, number by the strict decisions of the
j technical committee of the American
i Automobile Association, which insisted
that every car that did not absolutely I
comply with the measurements In the <
various classes should be barred. ;
L. Chevrolet, in a Buick, winning the \
101 to 230 cylinder displacement chani- !
pionship for ten miles, set the record !
down to 9.03 from 9.46, and Dawson i
(Marmon), wresting from Harroun !
the victory in the 231 to 300 class for <
live miles, made a new mark at 4.41, j
seven seconds better than the old time, j
Oldfield, with a Knox, won the five and <
the ten mile championships in the 451 j
to 600 class, which included the high- ]
est powered ears recognized under the i
stock car racing rules. Leading all J
the way, Oldtield cut down the record J
for five miles from 4.03 to 4.01. J
The honor for setting for next year's
I aspirants the championship record fori'
ten miles in the 301 to 450 class went
to Aitken <National), who pulled down
the time from 8.08 to 7.52.
Two Accidents Mar Sport.
Only two accidents marred the day's
sport, and in neither of them was anyone
injured, though Harroun had the
) narrowest escape from death that he

for his loss when F. H. Wheeler, vice 1
president of the Speedway Company, \
leading him before the thronged grandstands,
gave him the ten-thousand-dollar
silver trophy and a check for fl.uuO, '
which he won in the 200-mile race.
The second accident of the day oc- ,
curred in the five-mile free-for-all, in '
which Klrscher's Darracq cast high in (

moning all his strength, the driver ,

and finally turned it off to the Inner
field and stopped it safely in the sand.
