Col. George II. Crnbtroe, Lieut. Col. I.

The plan of utilizing the college
trainers In the conditioning of aviators,
I he most highly specialized branch of
military service, wns suggested by
Waller Camp,, head of the athletic di
vision of the nnvy commission on
tralnlng-cnmp activities, at the antiiiul
meeting of the National Collegiate as

Immediately Indorsed by the Aero Club
of America, and adopted by the gov

trainers of the aviators.

now 11 major In the uvlntlon branch of
the government and who has been ac

Innovation Is Hob Wrenn, the former
Harvard quarterback and second base

Nowhere In tho world has tho spe
cialized task of conditioning athletes
been developed as In the United States
and nowhere else In this country as
fully as among the universities.
Only those persons who have been
connected with this problem In both n
scientific nml 11 practical way rcnllza
the great delicacy of adjustment which
Is required In n llyer. Their physical
preparation Is n vital part of their
work and the trainers who hnvc Just

the confidence of tho American public.
ERNEST SHORE IS PROMOTED

ho was ono of five picked to take a spe

months ago, was later transferred to

SQUAWK OVER MONEY IS BAD
Public In Recent Years Soured on Pro
' fcsslonal Baseball Players
Tho squnwk of tho Ited Sox and
Cubs ball players prior to a recent
gnmo In Roston, tho threatened strlko
becauso they could not seo why they
should not ho paid tho aiiio amount
of money handed over to world's se
ries players of former yenrs, Is Just
about tho last straw that will break
tho camel's back, writes William Peet
In Pittsburgh Dispatch.
Tho Iden of refusing to don their
uniforms beforo the game unless they
were guaranteed a certain sum out of
tho world's series receipts, and finally
hacking down nt tho Inst minute bo
cnuse tho handwriting on tho wall was
plainly seen, Is about as asinine and
foolish a plcco of work as has been
chronicled In many a day.
Such actions by knights of tho
spiked shoo merely disgust loyal fans,
and when the game Is resumed after
tho war thero should such a thor
ough housecleonlng that every vestlgo
of tho former, grasping, pampered
player ho blotted from tho map.
Tlmt nenr-strllco nt IJoston lias giv
en the game a black eye that will not
soon bo forgotten.

the featherweight class. Today
Median Is meeting the heavyweights
as fast as they come his way, and ho
tops the beam nro 11 ml 1!)0 pounds.
Despite the fact that Meeehnn never
possessed a knockout punch: he has
succeeded in making a reputation as a

old-timers of Mike Schreck, when the
Clncy middleweight was In his prime.

MADDEN'S TIPS PROVE TRUE
Betters Who Doubt His Information
on Horses at Belmont Find
Cause for Regret.
John 13. Mndilen often wins races nt
Rclmont park nt substantial odds. For
tlmt reason ho Is followed about by
persons eager to obtain his stublo
secrets. Madden started a two-year-old
filly named Far lJeyond In a raco
recently and, of courso, ho was cross
exnmlncd. "Flyaway, If she runs ler race, will
surely win," said Madden. "My filly Is
green nnd has no chance."
Madden's tip was correct, for Flyn
way won breezing, whllo Far Reyond
ran third, yet some of Mndden's Inquis
itors pluyed his filly, bellovlng that
they would get tho money.
Madden started another two-year-old
filly named Magglo Maltlnnd In thu
last raco, Replying to countless ques
tions for tho right Information, tho
turf wizard snld:
"My filly needs a raco or two, but I
think she will be third."
"Nothing doing I" exclaimed ono of
the unxloiui ones ns sho walked away.
"Madden's tips are of no accouut. I'll
tnko (something else for mine."
Maggie Maltlnnd secured third
money, however, and those who fol
lowed Maddcu'd advice went home
scientific boxer, but lie Is remarkably
fast for a big mnn. lie Is a great mix
er, starting 1111 nvahinche of blows
which Is hard to solve. He rains blow
after blow ami gets away without
material damage to himself.
Median, aside from beating Denip
soy, nlso holds a four-round verdict
over Mlske, and Is credited with n
draw against the tough HiirrjMVIIIIs.
As n crowd plcnor Median is n
wonder. Ho Is 11 big favorite on the
coast, where he made, Prod Fulton run
out of n match hist .opting, when Pul

meeting with the fat boy.
Last winter In Philadelphia Median

TEAMS SELDOM MEET TWICE
Cubs and Tigers Are Only Clubs to
Monopolize World's Serlea for
Two Straight Years.
Chicago and lloston have had nioro
thnn their share of world's series,
though this Is tho flrst'tlmo the two
cities ever contested In one but It Is
seldom tho name team lime met each
other more than once. Ru-ebnll his
tory dating back to 1SSI shows that
hut three sets of teams hao met tho
second time nnd the Cubs and Tigers
nro tho only teams In modern baseball
history who have monopolized tho big
series for two straight .ears.
Tho Cubs of 1000, 1007 and 100S
won threo straight pennnnts for Chi
cago In tho National league, and their
first world's series In modern compe
tition between tho National and Amer
ican leagues resulted In defeat at the
hands of tho White Sox. The m-xt
two yenrs, 1007 nnd 100S, tho Cubs
battled Detroit In tho fall finvde. nnd
on both occnslons nnnexed the bunt

Whllo mentioning past performances
of bnll clubs It appears that tho old

WOULD UNITE GAMES
INTO SINGLE SPORT
Englishman Conceives Idea of
Merging Baseball and Cricket.
English Critics Continue to Offer Sug
gestions nnd Bewail Fact That
Foul Is Not Allowed to Figure
In Run Getting.
Thero Is now some talk In England,
where bnobull Is lnvndlng the sport
domain, of n sort of compromise game
which should embody some fentures
of cricket and baseball. Nothing will
probably ever come of any attempt
radically to change the baseball game,
as It has been evolved, any more than
would any endeavor to adopt some
baseball features Into cricket. The
two pastimes would mix about as well
ns oil nnd water.
Rut Kngllsh critics of baseball con
tinue to offer suggestions, nnd ono of
them In n recent Issue of un lhigllsh
periodical bewails the fact that the
baseball "foul" Is not allowed to fig
ure In the run getting. He thinks It
should be ns Itnpurtant u factor In the
American gnmo as the "snick" In
cricket, to which It corresponds.
Hero Is how he puts It:
"The snick or corner stroke Is un
doubtedly the most spectacular hit In
bnsebnllj Indeed, It Is practically the
only spectacular stioke, except the hit
out of the ground, which occurs once
In 11 blue moon.
"It seems 11 very great pity that
this 'corner stroke' Is merely thrown
nwny In baseball. In mnklng the stroke
the bntsmau hits as usual with a hori
zontal hat, and getting Just under the
ball sends It at a very great pace to
a tremendous height behind him, nml
sometimes to a considerable distance."
If the hnseball foul wero to be treat
ed the some us u fnlr lly or grounder,
the grand stand would hnve to ho
moved about as far back of the homo
plate as deep center field Is In front
of It nnd a "hack field" that would
literally be a back Held would have to
ho provided two players at least,
which would bring the batsmen up to
the cricket number of eleven.
All the grand stand fans would linvo
to have spyglasses, and tho bleachers
never would know which way tho
game was going, forward or back. Tho
catcher would also have to havo eyes
In tho back of his head If thero wcro
men on bases, nnd the bntsmen should
knock n nice grounder or lofty "snick"
about 1C0 or 200 feet back of the homo
pinto. It Is to snicker. No, let both
these lino games go along together but
separately, as It were.
MILLER HUGGINS SETS MARK

It Is doubtful If nny mnjor lenguo

ber of players us Miller Hugglns did
when tho Yankees played their last
set of games at Washington.
He had no extra catcher, nor had
ho on extra fielder or outfielder.
Resides this, there was no such thing
