was a sanctioned affair.
"We have no Idea of entering our

the run. IZ the race is neio. wunout
any sanction and the Memorial run

the representatives of the Caroll In

It is taken to mean that the Me
morial A. C will have little or no back

posed run Is held without sanction.
Other sources of information reveal the
fact that the club has been negotiating
with the A. A. U. for a sanction, an-I
that the discussion of the Memorial
representatives is nothing more than

DDE HORTER NOT
IN PH1LLY GAMES
Crack Quarter- Miler Prefers to
Be in Shape for Tomorrow's
Trials for Relay- Four.
Eddie Horter, -the star quarter-mller
of the Blue and Gray track aggregation.
will not enter the big games which are
to be held in Philadelphia this evening,
according to the statement made by
Coach Mulligan yesterday. Horter"s
home Is In the Quaker City and he was
anxious to participate in tonight's meet,
but as he Is booked to to out for the
relay team tomorrow, the Hilltop track
tutor decided that he would be better
able to show his form in the trials were
he to keep out of the Philadelphia
games, consequently the edict which will
cause the former scholastic star to re
main In Washington this evening. Hor
ter Is almost certain to make the relay
four as in recent practices he has shown
himself to be the superior of the ma
jority of the men who Intend trying for
tne quartet tomorrow morning.
"Newt" Brewer, the local boy, who
was one of the mainstays of last year's
track team, has been showing a great
deal of the form which made him such
a valuable man in 1912 and Coach Mul
ligan Is confident that he will accumu
late many points during the approach
ing season. Brewer will undoubtedly
specialize In the 440-yard run, as It was
In this event that he exhibited his best
form of Capt. Bill Carrlgan's troupe of
South Atlantic champions last winter.
Poilard, who ran for the Central
High School team of this city a year
or two ago, is taking daily workouts
in the dashes and promises to perform
as well for the West Enders as he Jld
while wearing the Blue and White of
the O street Institution. Although Pol
laid Is apt to be outclassed by some
of his crack teammates, the former
Centralite is likely to win his letter
by copping third place In a couple of
events. He starts well and there is
no reason for believing that he will
not be able to capably represent the

Mahoney, a 140-yard man who ran
under the colors of the Washington
Athletic Association last winter, re
ported to Coach Mulligan yesterday
and appears to be In first-class trim.
With Mahoney in the fold, the Hilltop
squad now boasts of four former W.
A. A. men. In Mahonev and Young,
quarter-mllers, and Wcidman and
Robertson, the two crack pole vault
ts. Mahoney will In all probability
try out for the relay team tomorrow
and It would not be surprising to .-o
him win a place on the aggregation
which Is to meet Fordham and Holy
Cross on Jan. 25.
Chet Crawford, the Arizona speed
merchant, has decided to enter the re
lay trials tomorrow, even though he
has been, practicing In nothing but the
dashes. While running for a California
school Crawford made aultc an enviable
reputation for ninweir in me g yaras.
and Is confident that he will be able to
give account of himself on the morrow.
Crawford has been troubled with a had
foot lately, but as that member has
healed he should be able to show his
Ed Barrett, the manager of next
year's Georgetown eleven, has been
showing a lot of class In the dashes of
late, and It would not be surprising to
see him break Into the scoring In the
short events during the season, while
at a l-ojolu tiren school of New York
city the gridiron executive won many
sprint events, and consequently Coach
Mulligan Is hopeful that he will be able
to regain his old-time form and assist
this winter In swelling the total of
Blue and Gray points. ,

Had Automobile Offer Been Open to Any. American League
Player, Some White Elephant Would Have Prob
ably Won the Principal Honors.
CHICAGO, Jan. IS. Had an auto
mobile been offered to the American
League player of 1912 who struck out
the least frequently, the man-who would
have won the car would In all prob
ability have been a member of the
White Elephants. It Is a certainty that
neither the St. Louis club, which finish
ed next to the bottom, or the Washing
ton team, which finished next to the
top, would have claimed the winner,
for these two combinations possessed
the ablest mlssers In the Junior organi
zation. The Browns struck out 783
times in 157 games and the Senators did
the Gus Hill act on 751 occasions in 154
The White Sox were the third easiest
team to fan, they whiffing on 645 oc
casions; the Tigers were retired on
strikes 604 times; the Highlanders and
the Red Sox 5S5 times; the Naps 571
times and the White Elephants 662
times. The club records of strikeouts
were kept last season, but the Individual
records were not, though they will be
in the coming campaign, and then fans
will be able to learn who was the hard
est man to retire on strikes.
When Napoleon Lajole was In his
prime he seldom struck out more than
ten times a season and last year he
wasn't whiffed very often. Harry Davis,
who led the American League In the
home ruos for several seasons, was.
on the contrary, frequently struck out.
Russell Ford of New York, once made
Connie Mack's onee first lieutenant hit

CHARLOTTESVILLE. Va.. Jan. 18
Virginia's basketball team, after its
whirlwind exhibtlon last night against
Hampden-Sidney. winning by a score of
33 to 4, Is today looking uhead to tne
hard schedule with every hope of suc
cess. Bill Rixey and Churchman are
as good players as any In the country,
and lctory over Georgetown Is confi
dently expected when the two quints
stack up against each other.
Against Hampden-Sidney the orange

they slowed up until nothing but ran

that the candidates for the University
of Pennsylvania baseball team estab

Roy Thomas, the coach, put the men
through batting practice. The maxi
mum temperature at 3 p. m. was 62 de

history 01 toe iocbj w earner uurcau.
Ty Cobb does not strike out very fre
quently, and when he does miss tnree in
a row more than once In a game. It
generally will be found that some left'
hander Is opposing the Tigers. Back
in 1910 Jim Vaughn fanned the Dixie
Demon, who had a monopoly on winning
the cnaimers trophy until last season,
three times In one game.
The greatest number of strikeouts
registered in an American League con
test last season was fifteen, . Coombs,
Brown and Pennock, of the White Ele
prants, claiming this number of victims
among the Detroit strikebreakers on
May 18. In this contest the Michigan
team was routed, 24 to 2.
On September 14. Hamilton, of St.
Louis, fanned fourteen of the Washing
tons, but he was poorly supported and
lost his game. 4 to 2. Thirteen strike
outs were claimed by Scott, of Chicago
In a fifteen-Inning game against St.
Louis on April 20, and by Walter John
son, of Washington against Boston on
May 30. McConnell. of New York, set
down a dozen of the Browns on strikes

Hughey Jennings Says Every
Successful Man Will Get Job
as Result of Sheer Merit.
BALTIMORE. Md.. Jan. 18. "I don't
know Just how many of the Tigers will
remain out of the fold when the training
season begins." said Manager Hughey
Jennings here today, "but I do know
that every man who makes the team
will have to earn It by sheer merit.

I see that Elliott Dent Is making an
earnest effort to get Into shape now for
the coming season. That's a good sign.
