AMERICAN TEAM IS MAKING
SWEEP OF OLYMPIC EVENTS
United States Scores Fifty
Nine Piints Sweden
STOCKHOLM. Sweden, July 0. Amer
lica leads the world to date In the Olym
pics, scoring 69 points In all contests.
Sweden Is second with El and then fol
low Great Britain, 3S; France, 17; Africa,
13j Germany, 12; Denmark, 9; Finland.
4; Greece, 3, and Norway, 2. Experts
here say that the American athletes
will outstrip all competitors as the
games proccod, as some of the greatest
nthletcs from the new world have yet
to make their appearance.
Another world's record went to the
Americans yesterday when "Tad" Mere
dith, tho nineteen-year-old schoolboy
from Merccrsburg Academy, flashed
over the lino in the SOO-meter event In
61.9 seconds, beating the peerless Mel
Sheppard, hero of tho 1008 Olympics Jn
London. Tho victory was clean cut and
bitterly contested, Sheppard and Ira
Davenport, the Chicago University star,
running a dead heat behind the flying
Sheppard's pacing of the winner was
heady. He set off at killing speed,
Braun, the German champion, trying In
vain to hold him. Sheppard's efforts
were successful and Braun had the
heart pumped out of hlin before he had
a chanco to challenge the flying Mere
dith. In choking off Braun, however,
Sheppard had. little left with which to
oppose Meredith when the final sprint
came. All three Americana finished
within the Olympic record of 190S and
Meredith went on to tho half mile mark,
shattering tho world's record held by
Almen W. Richards, a young student
America Certain to
Take First Honors
America Is certain to take first
honors in tho Swedish Olympics. On
the work of the United States team on
track and field so far America has
28 points. Sweden and Finland
aro tied for second with 6 and
Great Britain comes next with 5
pplnts scored. The fight for soc
and place Is certain to be well con
tested, but the American athletes
so far outshine all competitors
that interest In their wins is cen
tered largely in whether or not
they break records in their events.

Olympic team from America, was un

BOSTON, Mass.. July 9. "The best
outfielder on the club." That's Manager
Stovall's opinion of Walter Jantzen, the
youth who Is doing duty In the right
meadow. Jantzen Is playing better ball
than any outfielder on tho team, and
cost less, being secured for the asking
and railroad fare from his home In Chi
cago to St. Louis. lie was put In the
gamo right off the reel, and has been
there over since, and will continue to
tick, unless he takes an awful slump.
Jantzen started his professional career
with the Danville (Three-13ye League)
dub two years ago. That was the first
professional baseball he played. He
stayed there only a short time, and then
went to Clinton, In the Northwestern
Association. This league broke up In
a shoit time, though, and he was sup
posed to icpoit to Chicago. He waited
a 1 mg time for a telegram to report,
but none evoi came, and the next thing
he knew he was buck at his old stand
This all happened during tho short
peilod of tl months. Then he went to
Vlncennes In the Kitty League, where
ho plnvcd a yeai and a half He was
than bold to Cairo of the same organiza
tion, where ho lemulned until last fall.
Jantzen was supposed to report to that
club this season, but failed to do so,
going with llllly Nieson's Chicago
(I'nttcd States League) club, for which
he p'uved until the league broke up.
The. kid outfielder played In the United
States League under the name oX Wal
ters W hen tho leaguo broke up many
teams were after him. One team In tho
Minnesota-Wisconsin League was cspe
Uullv unxlous to grab him. The man
ager of the team, president of the
league and the preMdent of the club
all went to Jantzen s hone In Chicago
and tried tli'li bet to fit" blm to a
contract but of no avail.

NEW YORK. July 9 -Asserting that
little hope Is to be derived from an
of the no-called "White Hopes." Man
ager Billy Gibson, of tl)o Garden Ath
letic Club, is attempting today to ar
range a match between Joe Jcannette
and Champion Jack Johnson. Jeannetto.
who Is regarded by muny as Johnson's
most dangerous opponent, has already
agreed to box, and has a contract ten
dered him by Gibson. Gibson Is now
angling for Johnson. Jeannette arjrt
Gibson say they will make all conces
sions within reason to get tho cham
pion into the Madison Square Garden
Al Palzur, of New York, is also on
Johnson's trail. Confident following his
victor. over Bombardier Wells, Palzer
has announced that he Is thiough with
the elimination nroces nnH la now
lead, to tackle the champion.
The Mackmen are quitting. In asking
protection from Ban Johnson against
the Climbers, as represented by "Chick"
Gondii, they are displaying more "yel
low" than has ever been credited to
them. Gandll said nothing when Eddie
Collins broke his nose in Philadelphia.
He staved In tho game, too, by tho
way. The Athletics will lose many
friends by their recent action.
Athletics are whining. .
Indeed, frequently It has been said
that the Mackmen were not game In the
face of opposition. They howled when
Cobb spiked Baker. Since then It has
been proved that Baker Is a clumsy
player and can't help running llsks at
thlid base. On the other hand, Mclnnls
and Collins are always trying nasty
little tricks on the lines, and Thomas
works the same thing at the plate. But
when the shoe Is on the other foot ; .
Red Sox aro mounting.
The sportsmanship of tho athletic
committee Is allowing the 100-meter
swim to be raced over, thus giving tho
American swlmmors a ch.ince. Is worthy
of the highest praise. Through a mis
understanding, the Americans remained
on boarB their ship and technically were
disqualified. From a sporting lew
point, though, they were entitled to
compete. The committee Is O. K.
Marquard 1b humbled.
And the London "bobbles," those giant
policemen from the English capital, who
were charged with wearing spiked shoes
tn the last Olympics, were taken Into
camp by the Stockholm team. England
Is making a sad figure In the Olympics
'Amateur Day" settled. "

Marquard Just had to fall, that was
certain. But tho winning record of the
))lg twlrler will last for some time to
come. He met every team in the league
and won his games on the level, not be
ing saved for the weak sisters of tho
circuit. Now let Walter Johnson get
under way and wipe out that mark of
nineteen straight. He's bound to do it
some day, boys.

"Amateur Day" is billed for July 20,
