of the board today.
The Information comes from the Hill

along smoothly with Lansan at the
head of affairs, backed up by the
athletic board, which consists of Father
Kllrov and the various managers ol
the athletic teams. '
Following the " announcement of the
former football captain not to return
tuB resignation comes as no surprise.
Athletic affairb at the Hilltop are in

ident Langan today The athletic board
will meet on the first of the month, at
which time Dailey's successor will be
appointed. For the remainder of the
Sear, however, affairs -nlll be entrusted
to Langan. The new man to be ap
pointed will take charge next fall at
the opening of college.

At the, next meeting "-the football
coach for next season will be an

that the man to be selected will be
chosen for a term of years.
"Football will be placed on a better
basis," said President Langan today.
"We have gotten tired of having to
select a coach every year, and we will
algn up a man for a term of 3-eara.
The man chosen will be tendered a
three or flve-.year contract.
"Frank Gargan will be back with the
football team. There Is little question
"of that." continued Langan, "and we
have every reason to feel that con
tinued success -will follow the team."
Rumors flying thick and fast as to
Dalley's-successor have 'named Langan
as oelng the supervisor, but the present
head of the athletic board states posi
tively that he will in no way be con
nected with athletics at the Hilltop after
At the present time all coaches for

Asva member of athletic teams at the
Hilltop Dalley has been best known
perhaps, but his scholarship record Is

firm in its Intention of carrying out its
project may be gleaned from the reply.
Your letter of the 20th received and
would say In rply that the Memorial
Athletic Club intends to h61d a ten
mile run on February 8, and enclose
one of our entry blanks. I trust that
the same will help to explain matters.
This move on our part was one that
has been brought about by the South
Atlantic Association by constant
oversights and neglect to our men
and to the athletes of this city. We
feel that Washington clubs are per
fectly able to manage and support
their own athletics, and heretofore
we have practically had no repre
sentation In A. A. U. affairs in this
We are perfectly open and broad
minded in reference to amateurism,
and our organization believes In
doing all It can to aid and abet
athletic events that may arise.
We, in our own minds, are not
violating any rules of amateur ath
letics In giving a run for the bene
fit of all who are interested in long
distance events, providing they
prove they are amateurs.
Would say that If you will be In
this city in the near future., would
be more than glad to have a talk
with jou in regard to the above.
We beg to remain.

FIELDER Hi MAY
TAKE SALARY CASE
Detroit Pays St. Louis $3,000
for Hurler and Then Pays
Him Small Salary.
Hugh (Lefty) High, the St. Louis boy
who got his start with the Hartford
(Connecticut League) team, which was
managed by Bob Connery, the new Car
dinal scout, need not fret about the beg
garly pay offered him by the Detroit
club. Back In Hartford Lefty drew
down a monthly stipend of 00. Detroit
offers him a big league contract calling
for J166 a month.. Lefty has politely
fired the contract back at Owner Navln,
demanding more money.
High will get an Increase if he calls
the National Commission's attention to
his case. The baseball laws stipulate
that a player coming up from the minor
leagues must receive a 25 per cent In
crease in pay. Under this rule, the De
troit club must give Lefty a salary of
$250. and he'll get it, sure.
Detroit paid $3,000 for High's release,
buying him at the suggestion of Jimmy
Burke, the Goose Hill boy who will
manage the Fort Wayne team- Burke
scouted for the Tigers last season after
resigning his Job in Indianapolis. He
got a Up from Connery that High was
"ripe." Having implicit faith In his
friend. Bob Burke advised Navln to
buy High. Navln sent a check for
C000 to Connery and Lefty was de
mered in the fall.
The Detroit club has had several of
fers for High, but refused to let him
go. 'Tis said that Sam Crawford will
be stationed on first and Lefty Is needed
in the outfield to help out Ty Cobb and
Bobby Veach. Davy Jones and Shaller.

by Navln, leaving only Cobb, High.
