TO BREAK BASEBALL
. HOODOO WITH ARMY
Middies Seek Revenge on Cadets
in Game on May 31.
Navy Has Not Hold Its Own With
Cadets, but This Year Feel They
Have Excellent Chance to Break
Army's Winning Streak.
Tho renewal of tho minimi bncbnll
nnd football games between tho nnvnl
nnil military academies will nlniost
certainly tnko iilncc, beginning with
tho limVbuIl game, which will prob
nbly be played at West Point on May
.'11. The lait game was played In 1010
The rule, which went Into effort
when the United Status entered tho
war, that the teams of tho service
schools should not play away from their
homo grounds, In still In effect, and no
dellnlto arrangements can be Hindu
until It Is abrogated. However, It Is
believed that thin will be dune soon.
The naval academy will havo no ob
jection to tho plan of tho military
academy to use on their nine member
of tho class which was graduated
ahead of time, but vlleh has been or
dered back for a post-gradtiuto course.
Sportsmanship dictated tho course
which the naval academy authorities
pursued In agreeing to the playing of
tho post-graduates at West 1'olnt, as
otherwise the army folks would have
been conllucd to one class the lowest,
for material for their teams, hut they
Might also have remembered what fol
lowed a game played under conditions
somewhat similar to those which exist
now, mid tlie fact that a long-continued
series of army victories followed.
The series between tho service
schools Is a remaikablo one In several
ways. The navy has not held Its own
with Its army rivals, as It has done la
football, but has lost alt hut three of
tho 10 games played. The ilrst game
played was at Annapolis In 11)01, and
tho army won, 4 to !l. Tho next year
tho navy won at West Point, 5 to .'I,
and each of tho next three games
played was also won by the team play
lag away from Its own grounds. In
1007 tho break came, and the army
won at West 1'olnt, tl to fi. In 1003 tho
navy's hoodoo game was played at An
napolis, and since then there has been
tut unbroken chain of army victories.
Tho midshipmen feel that they have
an excellent chance of winning this
year. They will piny at West Point,
where all but otiu of the navy victories
havo been scored, hut there are more
practical reasons for their confidence.
There will ho a larger pick at An
napolis, and It Includes much good now
material. In particular, confidence Is
placed In linker, elusive left-hander,
who entered tho naval academy with
tno latest tins. Ho has done great
work In tho class games. Finally,
West Point will not have tho services
of Sammy Strong, who has coached the
nine when It won most of Its vic
tories over tho navy. On tho other
hand, that successful college coach,
Hilly I.ush, Is going to get the navy
nine ready for Its effort this year, mid
there Is coulldence hero that tho tlmo
has come to break the ai lay's winning
