CAREER ON TURF OF
CAMPFIRE IS ENDED
Wilson's Great Two-Year-Old
Will Long Be Remembered.
6on of Olambata and Nightfall Never
Speedier Than When He Broke
Down Colt Was Sufferer of
No breeder In tho United States,
taking tho number of inures In Ills
string Into comparison, can show ti
greater measure of success than Illch
nrd T. Wilson, tho president of tho
Saratoga Association for tho Improve
ment of tho Hrced of Horses. Whllo
Wilson had until recently only about
half u dozen marcs, ho always had a
horso of moro than ordinary quality
racing under his colors that was tho
outcomo of his own theories In muting,
whllo In Cainpllro and Hannibal ho
secured two ftrst-class horses.
"Tho general public will never know
how good n horso Campflro was," said
Wilson n few days ago In discussing
tho possibilities of the son of Olam
bnln and Nightfall as n sire. "Ho was
never greater than when ho broke
down, and tlitf morning ho went wrong
I think ho could have worked faster
over Belmont Park than any horso
that was ever trained there. Whllo
ho did great things as n two-year-old
when ho topped tho list of winners
In1 this country, ho was, In my opinion,
destined to accomplish still greater
things later In his career.
"I hnvo always had my own opinion
concerning Campflre, and nothing will
mnko mo bcllovo that ho was not n
sufferer from what wo would call nu
tolntoxlcatlon In tho human family. It
was this which Interfered with his
training and kept Iiltn from taking tho
sumo prldo of place ns a three-year-old
which ho occupied at two. This
season ho appeared to bo hlmsclt
again; but now his racing career Is
ended and tho public will hnvo to re
member him as ti very great two-ycur-old.
"Thcro aro breeders In this country
who have been prone to overlook tbu
greatness of some of our American
families whllo unduly exploiting tho
merits of others. Wo aro all ready to
concede tho potency of tho Uonnlo
Scotland and Hanover families, but
back of Hanover and Hindoo thcro
was a mighty horso u horso of great
Individuality whoso qualities havo
conio down through generations of
good horses. I refer to Virgil, son of
Vandal and grandson of tho Immortal
Glencoe. This horso'a blood, to my way
of thinking, had as much to do with
making Hanover great as did his Uon
nlo Scotlund dam.
"Virgil spent many of his best years
In obscurity; was used as a hack horse,
being driven about tho streets of Now
Orleans by tho Into Col. It. W. Sim
mons, who frequently told mo that tho
horso could show u thrce-mlnuto gnlt
on tho trot. Ho could Jump and ho
could run fnr and fast."

NO FOOTBALL AT HAVERFORD
Fears That Pastime Would Interfero

After a tenure of almost forty years
the great American gamo of football
will be abolished at Haverford college
this season. It was believed that thu
pastlmo would materially Interfero
with tho students' army training
course. Wednesdays and Saturdays,
both big days for football, will be de
voted to military work. Interclass
games alone will struggle for existence.
An entirely different program has
been adopted by Swarthmore, which
was approached on tho subject. Hero
the schedule will bo played out as
planned, unless government regula

According to Dean Alexander of
Swarthmore, "tho students need recre
