FAR EAST ATHLETES
TO ENTER OLYMPICS
Big Sporting Boom Now On in
Various Oriental Countries.
Interest In American Games In China
Has Caused Demand for Native
Amateur Athletic Association
Athletes front China, .lapau, the
Philippines and other far Kastern
countries may be contenders for hon
ors at the seventh Olympiad, to bu
held ut Antwerp next August, and for
a certainty will be formidable con
tenders at succeeding Olympiads, so
keen has become the Interest fostered
by the V. M. C. A. hi these countries.
In I'hlna, particularly, the Interest In
American athletics has caused a de
mand to come fiom nil parts of this
great new republic for a native nu
tlonal amateur athletic association.
It. A. Leake, physical director for
the "Y" ut rooehow, China, reports
that "the need for this has grown
durlpg tho Inst few years, owing to In
tersectlonal athletics and China's par
ticipation In the far Kastern Olym
pics, held at Manila. On thu occasion
of tho assembling of the Chinese team
of more than one hundred picked men
at Manila, It was decided to make a
start toward organizing n federation.
A committee was appointed to draft
and present such a constitution ami
by-laws. This has been done, ami It
has been distributed for correction and
criticism. Tho completion of the or
ganization certainly will he effected
during thu. coming year."
A great rivalry In American ath
letics has sprung up between Chlun
mill Japan since the Chinese athletes
outpointed the Japanese In thu far
Kastern Olympics last slimmer, al
though tho meet was won by thu Phil
Skating and skiing have become pojv
ular In Japan, and, although that coun
try Is called tho Land of tho Cherry
Illossnnis, parts of It have heavy falls
of snow and seeral weeks of splendid

hint from Japan, and an Oriental

program In the not distant future. The

"pop" aro rapidly being uctmlroil by
tho far Kastern athletes, who aro get
ting down to a real training basis,
Hasebttll, football, ami basketball, In
addition to track and Held sports, am
rapidly growing In popularity In mnny
parts of China. John Hrudshaw, physi
cal director of tho "Y" nt Amoy, China,
writes: "Tho basketball lenguo 1ms
proved n splendid success. Largo
crowds have attended tho games and
a great deal of Interest has been
shown, so thai oven tho middle schools

nt Belmont Park, With Jockey Lof.
lleet son of Fair Pln.x and Maliuhali
was the undlspiiteil champion of the

not the gi cutest money earner. That
honor went to Coiiiuuinder J. K, I

ner of the classic Kentucky Derby
Sir Barton High Earner.
Sir llartoii earned Sss.wo, while
Man o' War was second with $3,1.:u;.
Hut It wns .Man o' War's racing, not
his xvlntilngs, that made him the
Kreutest racer of 1U1i. Man o War
went to the post tell times during thu
season and tlulslied In front nine
times. He was apparently racing bet
tor nt the end of the season than at
any time. Ills most notable win was
iho rich Futurity ut ltelmont Park.
Ills only defeat was encountered at
Saratoga In the Suufnrd Memorial
stakes, when he was left -it the post,
only to make up much lost ground
and llulsli second to Upset.
Just which horse Is entitled to the
honor of being termed the best It-year-old
of thu year Is u question that Is
certain to start a dispute. Sir Harton
and Purchase have their followois,
ami both performed brilliantly.
