WRITTEN FOR THE SUNDAY REPUBLIC.
Entries are now In at the Christian Broth
ers College for the State athletic meet,
which will be held en tho college campus
next Saturday. May 21, the list including
the best-known athletes In the. college divi
sion of this city, as well as representatives
from three outside Institutions. Besides St.
Louis University and the Christian Broth
ers College, the colleges npresented aro
the State Normal. Klrksillle, and School of
While, comparatively little Is known in
this city of the ability of the men from the
outside colleges, the representatives of the
two local Institutions seem particularly
strong, especially In the ..printing division.
OFlynr, Wabh, 0,NellI and Jlcl-ean are In
this event for St. Louis University, while
tho Christian Brothers have Doherty,
Longlnottl. Calilll, Hastedt and Henry
JcK.on as their representatives.
Three men can represent each Institution
'in each event, so there Is good material for
each college to select from among Its en
tries. Billy O'Flynn will certainly start for
the university, with Walsh and McLean the
most likely teammates. Walsh has shown
extremely well In the sprinting game of
late, and. while he did not figure In tha
university Indoor meet at the Coliseum, ho
has shown good form in all his training.
Of the C. B. C. entries In the sprints
Lpnginotti, Henry Jackton and Hastedt aro
likely to be the three selected, with J Ca
hlll as an alternate. Jackson figures in so
many different events. Including the hur
dles, high Jumps, sprints, quarter-mile and
pole vault, that It is hard to predict Just
what he- will specialize on the occasion of
the meet. Longlnottt ha been doing well
In the sprints of late and is considered a
strong candidate lor first place in the l(iu
. 1nln& of St. Louis University, the
half-mile man at the Institution, will be
the only representative of the Grand avenue
college In the half-mile run. C. B. C, as a
contrast. Is strong In long-dlstanco men and
has. Ave entered In the distance events.
These are McCarthy, Yore, Baldwin. Longs
don and roster. St. Louis University Is not
represented at all In the sixteen-pound shot
put. In the quarter-mile run. however,
three men will compete on behalf of the
college. William O'Flynn is entered here,
as well as In the shorter dashes, and may
be tried out. Stadel and Fleming are the
In the 120-vard hurdle Dan Dillon will
compete for St. Louis and Is the only entry
for that college. Both the Jacksons are en
tered In this event. Captain William Jack
son. Doherty, Qulsenberry. Log-don and
Henry Jackson being the other entries. Wil
liam Jackson will figure In the weight
events and has been training hard for these.

The track at the college Is practically
completed and will furnish a course of a
quarter-mile in circuit. The 100-yard chute
has not been laid with cinders as yet. but
It will be in first-class trim by ni.xt Satur
day. Tom Cox, who has been handling the
C B. C. men. will probably run off a spe
cial preliminary before the meet to decide
how to assign the men to the various
events. Coach Martin Delaney of St. Louis
University has already decided how to allot

Harvard's crew squad has Just passed
through an unlucky week. The first part of
the week Captain Bullard strained his ankle
eeverlv In Jumping over a low stone wall,
an Injury which will probably deprive him
of twowepks' rowing at least The follow
ing dav R. S. Francis '02. unn ini,i ir frti-
a week, threatened with appendicitis. He
rowed In the victorious four oar last year,
and this year has been rowing at No. 7.
He Is considered one of the ht mt.n nn tha
starboard side, and as Bullard alo rows on
mis hiue, vne eiunis are considerably broken
up and not well balanced at present.
Little progress has been made since the
Easter recess toward Kplenifnf a 'mrKiti.
eight. It seems that Higginpon, the coach
nas not jet round a stroke oar who Is whol
ly to his liking, for within the last week
be has tiled a number of new men there,
even moving some of them over from star
board. FranclR, for instance, had a trial
at stroke Just before he was leaid off, and
alv Shuebruk. wbo has rowed on the port
side for four years Phillips, of last year's
freshmen, has nroved too unstendv. nnd i
probably out of the race for stroke. He
has gone back to rowing at No. 2. At pres
ent It looks as though McGrew would be
tho final selection. Bancroft had the call
on me position at nrst. but he has shown
little Improvement In the last two weeks.
McGrew gets a fairly good bent Into his
stroke, but the coaches have their doubts
about his ability to drive a crew along.
He Is a strong, effective oar. however, in
thl respect being ahead of Bancroft, and
he Is profiting by coachinir also Of the
other oars on the port side. Shuebruk at No.
B seems sure of his place, as he Is perhaps
the best man on that side of the boat,
nnd has yesrs of experience behind him. If
McGrew wins out at stroke Bancroft will
probably be put at No. 4. and No. 2 will be
fought out between Phillips and Derby, with
roster the rhot nuttor, as a possibility. On
the starboard side there are four good men
In Bullard. Francis, Aver and James.
Captain Guernsey of the Yale basebill
team ha made an nil around chanre In his
team as an experiment. The- unlverMtv nine,
whli" In fielding the most brilliant of recent
years, except at some olacci Is at
the bnt bv far the weakest. It Is not to-dav
a nine a good as last v ear's, and unless
It Improves It is difficult to see where Yale
ran win from eithpr Harvard or Princeton.
Captain Guernsey has taken De Saullej out
of the game entirely for the time being,
and give seeond bno to Metcalf. whose bat

This arrangement strengthens the nine all

High School and the Smith Academy will
tie up in their annual baseball game next
Saturday and the contest Is of some prom
ise, as both teams have shown good work
of late. Smith's performances have been
good throughout while High made an ev
eeptionallv strong showing in her contest
with St. I-ouis Ilniversits last Thursday.
On account of the State athletic meet and
the teachers' institute falling upon tho af
ternoon of May 21, it has practically been
decided to plav the game In the morning so
as to avoid conflict. The contest will most
likely be held at the Pastime grounds.

However this might have been, it Is cer
tain that for the time the bout lasted up
to Abel's one punch, Sullivan gave as
pretty an exhibition of boxing as has been
witnessed here for some time. So far did
he oucla;s Abel as a boxer that In the
early rounds It looked as though the can
test would be a tamo, affair like the pre
llmlnarv. Sullivan's sKIll at blocking and
his perfect Judging of distance labile evad
ing Abel's leads alone furnished a spec
tacle which was worth seeing, however.
Sullivan probably was the coolest man
ever seen here In the ring. He would slip
Abel's swings and hooks without appareht
effort, sliding easily between the Kld'a
fists, and always getting h!slbow or glove
in the proper place to Mode Abel's blow.
to greater advantage In the shot-put In
this event, where muscularity lounts for so
much, the students at the agricultural de
partment of the State University "short
horns," as they are known should certaln-lj-
be able to furnish men who could hold
their own in mere strength with representa
tives of 1h average college. And were
this strength trained for the shot-put. the
college should be able to develop represent
atives of the highest order
Less room Is rtquired for practice in the
shot-put than in nnj other event, the yard
of a college boarding-house affording quite
as good a place as an where else. Yet the
"shorthorns" have never seemed to enthuse
over the possibility of developing good
weight men from their number. Nearly all
the good performers at the State Unlverslty
come from the academic department.
A rather peculiar decision was handed
down in th field dav of the Cincinnati Unl-ver-ltv
last week, an apparent frarnlng up
of one race cau!ng the Judges to dlsquallfy
the- man who finished second, without, how
eyr removing him from the meet alto-"
gether. Though disqualified in one event,
he was allowed to compete In the remain
ing contests of the day, anil succeeded In
w inning the Held championship.
The question arose in the 440-vard dash,
where Helntz, Mannheimer and Kugler tied
up. Mannheimer was In the lead, and was
vi Inning easily. Kugler wa? second, and
siemed to have that place cinched, when he
suddenly stopped and allowed Helntz to
pass him and flnih second. The impression
that he allowed Helntz to do thi so an to
get three points additional, thus helping
him on the way to the field championship,
bi-came general, and the judges decided to
disqualify Helnt7. As this would have kept
him out of several events thereafter, how
ever, he was allowed to compete in the re
maining events, only being- disqualified In
the 410- ard run. Bv tlng Mannheimer In
the second heat of a hurdle rare later.

the effects of punishment badly, but he

It was only in the twelfth and thirteenth
rounds that It began to look as if he could
land an effective blow. In these rounds he

irritated Sullivan, but which did no damage.
But It was apparent that Sullivan was not
fighting quite as fast a in the opening
rounds and that he refcrned somewhat tired.

was letting up a trifle to prepare for the

Sullivan's followers claim, with Justice, that
