The local aquatic season opened last Fri
day with the Letup's plate race on tha

furnished a change In the holders of the
tropky. Originally held by the "Westerns,
the St. Louis Rowing Club captured tha
trophy last season and the Westerns bent

Considerable interest, apart from every
other matter connected with tha race, exist
ed among members of these two clubs as to
which would get the trophy. Last season
the Westerns undoubtedly had a hard
stroke of racing luck in being nearly
swamped by the swell raised by'a. passing1
steamboat and their partisans always
claimed that they would have won tha
race had It not been for this accident, which
caused them to drop out.
Their defeat of St. Louis last Friday,
accordingly, caused much Jubilation among
the Westerns, and the finish was surround
ed by a crowd of enthusiasts who made
violent demonstrations of approval when
their victorious crew rowed to shore. Cap
tain Frank Dummerth was so violently
slapped on the arms and shoulders In con
gratulation by his friends that his skin was
as red as a baby's when he reached tha

Fultz went West, and successfully coachl
the University of Missouri for two year?.
Since then he has played, coached and
acted as captain on the Ouquesne Athletic
Club eleven and the Homestead eleven. He
was with the latter organization last year.
an-J the plaers he got togethar composed
one of the strongest football elevens that
"Fultz was a star of tho brightest hue
during his undergraduate days. He played
four years on tho Brown University foot
ball and baseball teams, actln? a captain
of th football team during his senior year,
and the baseball nine In his junior year. On
the track he has a record of 10 1-S sec
onds for Id) yards. He has always plavil
half back, and during the last two years of
his college life there was not a man among
the Eastern colleges who was his equal &,s
en asgressilve line plunser or end runner."
Fultz will be well remembered as coach
ing the Missouri State University team
about three years ago. at a time when the
season's record was rather disastrous. Con
sidering the difficulties under which he la
bored. Fultz made a good record as a
coach out of distinctly poor material.
His term at the fctate University was
during a period of supremacy of the Sigma
Nu fraternity, when the manager of the
team belonged to that college society, and
when the governing of the football team
seemed to be dictated by that body to the
exclusion of the team's Interest In many
respecls. It wan openly charged amomt tho
students that men were placed on the team
for no other reason than the fact that thy
were members of the Sigma Nu crganlza
tlon. and. be this as It may. It Is certain
that the fraternity was unduly represented
on the eleven.
V. It. Scudder. who developed Into one
of the best players at the university the
following season, was a candidate for a
position on the team in the year cf Fultz's
coachship and was generally regarded by
the students as certain of a place on the
eleven. Hi was not given a trial, how
ever, and was sidetracked by the efforts,
it was claimed, of the Sigma Nu aggrega
tion. A player named Mobsman was put on In
stead from the Sigma Nu delegation, and his
penormance ai tne .Kansas jtame inanns
glvlng Day will be long remembered at the
college. The field was covered with ico and
snow on that occasion, and Scudders bulk
would have been worth much to Missouri.
Mossman was given the ball on two or
three occasions, and In every Instance he
stopped when he bit the Kansas line as If
he had been shot.
In some cases the Kansas men even got
him started backward and he failed al
together to hold his position against the
fierce attacks of the Kansas ptHyers. It
was a matter of comment after the game
tr-at Scudder could have saved his team
from many gains by Kansas had he been
la Mossman's place.
The mere fact of the manhcershlp of tha
football team bclrvr so bandied as to pre
vent the coach from having the absaltro
selection ot nis own men may seem strange.

To C. "W. McCullough of the St. Louis
Rowing Club belongs the credit of intro
ducing a new element Into aquatic rportS
this season that of races between one
lagged oarsmen. McCullough devised thia
branch of rowing for the sake of three or4
four of his frlendi who. like himself, lack:
one limb, and he has succeeded In Interest
ing several one-legsed athletes in the sport.
His contest with Messrs. Murray and
rohl furnished a thrilling race last Friday,
and he now has a meeting pending wltb
Ixiu Gulon. who has challenged him to rowj
for 323 a sKde. a defl which McCullough. ln-
tends to accept.
McCullough has devised a echeme to pre.
vent his possible overturning while in tho
single shell In the shape ot a pair of light!
copper boats in miniature, which are at-j
tached to the outriggers of the shell. Theseei
copper boats are thin and light and are
shaped so as to offer little resistance to thai
water. Being airtight and hollow, they aron
buoyant enough to assist him In keeping-1
himself straight In the boaL regardless ot
the vjgarles caused by the absence of ono
leg. and at the same time they diminish,
the rpeod of the shell but a trifle.
