event of the season this evening at
6:30 o'clock, when four elght-oared
crews of the Potomac Boat Club will

these including', single shells, doubles,
singles, four canoes, upset races, and
finishing the sport will be a free-for-all

BINGLES AND
Washington's Case.
The law of gravity still works
Amid the daily thrall;
The higher that a bloke ascends
The harder must he fall.
There will be a better understanding of the Senators'
real position as soon as they conclude with the Ath
letics. Any old ball club is likely to be bumped off the
track after moving at full steam in a road-roller or an
armor-plate wall.
It doesn't often befall an athlete to meet the rousing
reception extended to young Mr. Shore, of the Giants.
To be whaled for a bombardment of ten runs in bis
initial round brings on that feeling of "how peaceful
the old home must look this evening," and "I wonder if
the old stable is still painted blue."
The Red Sox still carry this ennobling thought in
the midst of an Athletic upheaval from their immediate
rear. After five games with the Yankees in New York,
they face eight games in four days with Prof. Wolver
ton's club upon their own battlefield. Properly nour
ished, this incident may be developed into a margin
worth at least an outside bet.
Flag dreams are always in order, here and there, but
for Griff and his people to finish in the first division will
be an event of more than passing note. Washington
carries her chance to nose out Chicago, Cleveland, De
troit, New York, and St. Louis, and this will be as

Happenings in Sportdom
Yesterday
The Nationals defeated the Ath
letics, Bob Groom pitching one of
the best games of the season, by a
score of 8 to 2, taking the first game
since the victory at Washington on
Juno 18.
Harvard made a clean sweep in the
annual regatta with Yale at New
London. The Crimson allowed the
Blue but one race, a preliminary on
Thursday.
Eppa Rixey made his debut for the
Phillies, working but one inning
against Brooklyn, allowing no runs
and no hits.
Rube Marquard won his sixteenth
straight game for the Giants, defeat
ing Boston by 6 to 2. The game was
the hardest the "Rube" has had to
pitch, according to New York critics.
"Lefty" Russell is returned to the
Athletics by the Atlanta team. The
former Baitlmore and Philadelphia
twirler has failed to make good in
repeated trials.
"Buck" Becker, sent to Montreal,
is let loose by Billy Lush, and is re
turned to the Nationals. Becker wired
Griffith for instructions.
Ty Cobb and, Sam Crawford pulled
off their famous steal of home and
third in the game against Cleveland.
The high school championship
series in Philadelphia is halted on
account of charges of professional
ism against players. Five teams arc
involved.

worthy an achievement as Athletics or Giants can
claim in winning a pennant. It all depends upon how
hard the Senators take their recent and abrupt stop
page. To be lassoed while traveling at headlong speed
is Inclined to jolt some of the swiftness out of one's
sprint, but having recovered from the sickening thud,
the hour is always ripe to arise and resume the Journey
at the best possible pace.
"If Heinle Wagner had another name he would be
regarded as one of the great ball players of the game
one among the greatest," remarked a Boston war cor
days ago. And at that the gap between J
Heinle and Hans isn t as wids as the space between two
Siberian outposts. The Bostonian is undoubtedly one
of the stars of baseball and "by any other name" would
probably be ranked as the most valuable shortstop in
the A. L. circuit.
Boston and Philadelphia clash for five games through
the first week in July. Note to composing room Dig up
"Crucial Series" and hold for instant delivery.
Jake Stahl and his men know what they are up
against in stopping this Philadelphia club, but they still
figure they have their chance of pulling through. Stahl
believes that Joe Wood and Hall can hold Coombs and
Plank or Bender, and that Collins, O'Brien, and Bedient
leave him a pitching corps the equal of Mack's. J. Gar
land believes that hlB outfield is better and that his in
field is only a shade shy in speed and power. He is
willing to stack Gardner and Wagner against Baker and
Barry, but Yerkes and Stahl are not Collins and Mclnnis.
"We will need the break," opines Mr. Stahl, "but we
are as likely to get It as they are. If Boston can't stop
Mack's team the race ends before August."

ALL THREE BOAT
RACES FROM YALE
The Crimson Makes Clean
Sweep of Thames Regat
ta From Old Eli.
NEW LONDON, Conn.. June 22.
Harvard made a clean sweep of the re
gatta here yesterday with Yale, win
ning the varsity eight, freshman eight
and v.rsltv four races, leaving only to
the Blue the satisfaction of having
been victorious In one of the prelimi
nary events.
The varsltv eight race, the chief event
of the regatta, resulted In a sweeping
victory for the Crimson oaremen and
served as a fitting climax to one of the
most successful regattas seen on the
Thames In years. The Harvard crews
were virtual machines and won all threo
laces almost as thev pleased.
In tbe varsity elght-oared race Yalo
caught water first and got away to a
slight lead before the Crimson boat
shot Into motion.
Harvard's beautiful rowing machine
ground out one of Its cleanest cut
triumphs. Rowing to a flve-length vic
tory Harvard's winning oarsmen were
far from spent and no member of the
Crimson eight tired at the finish.
Rowed to near insensibility Yale's eight
tottered and gasped and Captain Rorr
eyn, at number five, and Herman, num
ber four, nearly sank from their slides,
but quickly regained their strength.

The Herald team, of the Northern As

league, according to advice received to
day. Inability to muster a full nine
yesterday was the cause of a forfeit to
Waverly, and those at the head of af
fairs on the Herald team say they are
disgusted, and will not attempt to
round up the players.
At the start of the season the Herald
team was a weak organization, but was
greatly strengthened by the addition of j
several high school players. The team j
then took a brace, and with one of the '
best pitchers In the city managed to get '
a string or victories, taaaie rnompson,
who holds the strike-out record for the
amateur pitchers, was doing the bulk
of the twirling with success. The team
began to lay down, players failing to
appear. It Is understood that the team
will forfeit its franchise
The players of the Sewage Pumping
Station team are to apply for' release
from that aggregation, and are to ask
to be made free agents by the com
mission. Following yesterday's forfeit
to Cornell Company, of the Capital City
League, the players announced that
they wished their release, as they did
