Benjamin S. JTIuor, president of
the Washington baseball clnb,
has accepted the invitation of
the Philadelphia sporting writ

banquet at the Continental
Hotel, Philadelphia, February

the club. It Is expected that

Manager Griffith expects his final
answer from Charlottesville Monday. If
he fails by that time to make satis
factory arrangements for the coming
training season, he will close all nego

the attractions of the towns which have
put in bids for the team.
"I hope I can go to Charlottesville,"
said the "Old Fox" today, "but I
sha'n't know till Monday. If I don't
fix it up then well, there are several
towns on the line."
May Play Second.
Before leaving for Glendora. Cal., to
care for hiB frost-nipped oranges,
"Husk" Chance declared that Chase
might be allowed to play second base
for the Yankees next season. It all
depends on Chance's strength. He says
that, if he feels strong enough, he may
play the flrat bag himself and send
Chllde Harold to the midway cushion.
However, don't bet any money that
Chase will be the second sacker of the
Highlanders next year.
IUty Morgan, our own little second
sacker, "the best In the world," if you
believe what he says about himself,
will be in town late today. He has
brought a bunch of bowlers for u
match at the Palace alleys, but he rr.a.r
manage to whisper a few prophecies
regarding the coming season before be
hikes for the Union Station. The fans
will turn out en masse, whatever that
may mean, to see Ray in action on the
Arthur Irwin's remark that in Chance,
"the Yankees have signed their first
real manager," may lead him In sev
eral kinds of trouble. When It Is re
called that the Yankees have had
George Btalllngs and Clark Griffith, the
utter folly of Irwin's remark is seen
at once. Indeed. It is the general
opinion among baseball men that Irwin
lias been a Jinx on the back of the

George Stalllngs accuses him of stab-'

Western High School track athletics
received a boost today when it was an
nounced that (James Mulligan would

The Georgetown coach will spend a
part of each day at the Western High

White athletes will confine their work
to the development of relay teams and
will later take ud outdoor work In
preparation for the annual spring meet.
Western has a number of good men

Prospects of fair weather for the Me

Quarter-Miler From Brooklyn High School Latest Candi
date for Georgetown Track Team Comes With
Good Reputation as First-Class Runner.
Bob Tcrwllllger, of New York, is the
latest candidate for track honors at
Georgetown University, having entered
the freshman class.
Tcrwllllger is reported as one of the
best quarter-milers In the country, hav
ing annexed the senior Indoor title at
Madison -Square Garden. Tcrwllllger
comes well recommended and should
make a strong .bid for honors.
He enters the freshman class from
the Brooklyn High School, and on past
performances should have little diffi
culty in making the relay team.
The relay four which is to represent
Georgetown University In the one-mile
race against Holy Cross and Fordham
in New York on January 3, will be
chosn on January 20, when the time
trials will be held In Convention Hall,
and Coach Mulligan is confident that
the fastest quartet which has worn the
Blue and Gray In years will be chosen.
Last winter the trials were held at the
Arcade, but as the sharp turns there
proved a big disadvantage to the run
ners. Manager Darr, of this year's ag
gregation, decided to have the trials
held at Convention Hall, where It is ex
pected that all of the contestants will
be able to develop their best speed.
There seems to be no doubt but that
the team which will run for the Hilltop
University this season will be far su

The track squad received more or less
of a severe loss yesterday when Rowles
announced that he had decided to give
up his school work for the year at
least, and accordingly would be unable
to continue track work. The former

"Every Knock Is J Lccsi?
No trouble expected.
Though two outfielders remain to affix
signatures to contracts for the doming
season, 5 Manager Griffith worries not.
It is decidedly unlikely that Connelly,
the Montreal man, will offer my com
plaint. Milan wants a little more money
than his contract calls for and prefers
to discuss the question before signing.
But they'll all be on the ship when she
puts out from the dock in April.

That training camp muddle is des

If Griff can't find suitable accomoda

ho will look elsewhere. Many towns
are in the field, and the "Old Fox"
should have a comparatively easy time
making his selection. From this dis
tance, one would conclude that Char

see the Climbers train.
Arthur Irwin's loquacity, known the
country over, may result In his being
"frozen" at the coming meeting in New
York. In his desire to keep up with the
procession, he says that "Chance Is the
first real manager the Yankees have
ever had." Wonder how Hal Chase and
C. C. Griffith will like that. But then,
they may excuse It, coming from Ar
thur. Mystery somewhere.
The Athletics are generally consider
ed a poorly-paid major league team.
Still, never do you hear of any hold

too. There's a mystery somewhere, in

Question Is Being Debated-
Overtime By the Gas
ANN. ARBOR, Mich.. Jan. lL-Sorae;
body started a' discussion down KniT
lately as to who the man was who put
the crouch in starting sprints, and ever
since then the pot has been boiling right
busily and claimants by the score have
been pushed into the limelight by this
writer and by that one until It begins to
look as though every one caught the
idea at once. Here is the latest and
best bet. however, and it looks to be
worth a play:
On no less an authority than "Steve",
Farrel. the veteran trainer of the Uni
versity of Michigan teams, it is an
nounced that Mike Donlin. Attlebury.
Mass., and at present running a hotel
at Pawtucket. R. L, is the man who
first introduced the revolutionary form
Here is the way it came about: The
gas log brigade was working overtime
this vacation at Ann Arbor and every
subject under the sun was being fanned
and panned. Some one mentioned the
"crouch" and started boosting one of
the many entries In the fame race.
"Just a minute," quoth Steve, "and
I'll tell you all about it. because I was
righk there." Here, therefore. Is the
inside dope: -
"Back in the '80s one or the brainiest
runners in the country was Mike Don
lin. He was1 always figuring and
scheming trylnr to dope some way
where he could gain a foot or a frac
tion of a second. One' of hia stunts
was to cut oft his running shoes from
the sole back, and fasten them ea his
feet by straps over hia ankle somethiag
on the order of the rubber fnaTT that
yon see some women wearing now. He ,
always claimed that he saved, at least '
two ounces this way, and It gives an
insight into the close thought that he
bestowed on the game.
"One of the things that was bother
ing all of the runners at the time was
the matter of handling themsehrea la
the ''dab start so as to get into their
stride with the least possible waste of
time. In the 'dab' start, aa it has beea
called, the runner stood erect, thooga
leaning slightly forward with his left
foot and left . leg extended. At the
crack of the gun. of course, the right
leg would come up and also the right
arm, but this was Incorrect, aa the left
leg and left arm should move forward
together. For this reason a little side
step was Inserted, which resulted la the
arms and legs moving in unison, but
which also consumed valuable time.
Donlin started figuring, and as a result
he . Introduced the method of putting
the fingers of the right hand to the
ground with the left leg advanced, thus
extending the right leg and left arm
together, with a consequent saving of
time. That really was the forerunner
of the crouch."
