Medical Staff of Y. M. C. A. Will
Inspect All Runners in Laurel
to Washington Race.
'Washington marathon enthusiasts will
probably bo deprived of seeing two
of the greatest of the runners developed
In this section of the county on April
12 If their reported retirement holds
good. Johnny Bolac ot the Carroll in
stitute, Washington's best bet in last
year's marathon, and the man who
made Frank Ruth step the distance In
record time, will probably withdraw
this year.
Bolac has failed so far to send his
entry in, and his teammates report
him not in the best of shape. He was
to have run in the Athenian ten-mile
run Easter Monday, but failed to show.
Bolac may yet enter the Times-News
race, althouch his friends hold out lit
tle hope of rettlne him in shape.
Washington is not alone a loser, as
Baltimore's veteran Henry Ellphin
stone. the winner of the 1910 race, the
jast neid Here rrom Laurel, is reported
as having withdrawn from the game
this year. This is one of Ellphlnstone'a
tricks, however, and those who know
him say he will be on the line ready
and fit for another killing.
Eliphlnstone has finished well up In
every distance race, and Is the real
veteran of the marathoncrs in this sec
tion of the country unless it is Johnny
Gallagher, the American Olympic run
ner, who is at present under the A. A.
U. ban. Elphinstone has yet to send
his entry In. and It will be remembered
that In former races he has been one
of the last to enter.
Washington athletes are again to be
examined at the Washington Y. M. C.
A.. Prof. E Edward Becket having offer
ed to turn out the medical staff at the
association to look over the athletes
before they enter the big race. All of
the Washington men will come uo for a
physical examination on April g or 9.
The notice will be given out later.
Joe Turner Wins in
Two Straight Falls
Displaying the greatest endurance
that has been seen on a local wrestling
match, Jce Turner and John Kllonls
wrestled for two hours and fourteen
minutes before the fomer gained the
first fall. Opinions expressed today by
experts indicate that no match con
tested In this city has ever revealed
so much endurance coupled with clever
wrestling as was seen last night at
the Gayety Tneater. Turner also gained
the second fall, after an Intermission
cf ten minutes had bcn allowed. This
fall came after fle minutes of strenu
ous grappling by both athletes.
Joe Turner, who was looked upon as
the probable aggressor before the match
was kept on the defense, for the greater
part of the match. More than a score
of times, Kllonls had the "Washington
lad In dangerous holds, but by persist
ence, which frequently -wore on the pa
tience of the spectators. Turner un
tangled himself from each hold. At one
stage of the tlrst bout. Turner kept
Kllonls in a headlock hold for seven
minutes. Manager Peck expects to
bring another good man Mere in the
near future to wrestle Turner.

New York University, in the race for
the individual title until the tumbling
event. In which the New Yorker fell
down badly, and all three athletes went
ahead of him.
Wolter's Ankle May

HAMILTON, Bermuda. March 29
Although Manager Chance had high
hopes of being able to start the season
with everyone of his regulars In the
line-up. It appeard certain today that
Harry Wolter, the Highlanders' out
fielder, would not be able to get in
the game.
Wolter was injured last season. His
ankle is still wrapped in tape and
Chance Is not going to take any risks.
llve)t will probably take Wolter's

BALTIMORE WANTS
AMATEURS TO HELP
Monumental City Representatives Desire an Association Similar
to That Here, and One Which Will Nominate a Team
for Intercity Championship.
By BRYAN
Baltimore m desirous of having an
amateur baseball association similar to
that running the basebalf teams in the
city, and has sent two representatives,
Orville King and Louis Franck, here
for a conference with President Robert
H. Young, of the local assocfatlon.
President Young was in conference
with the Baltimore men, who said that
they wished to learn all about the
Washington amateur baseball associa
tion with the idea of taking the matter
up for Baltimore. They promised to let
President Young know more about their
plan, and wanted Washington people
to outline their baseball association.
At present the Monumental City has
nothing in the way of a controlling in
terest in amateur baseball circles, and
was desirous two vears ago, of getting
into the post-season series for the in
tercity championship.
Further developments are expected in
the near future, as the Baltimore rep
resentatives promised to take ud the
amateur baseball bituation there with
the Baltimore News. It Is designed to
find a way for the Baltimore teams to
determine a winner to be nominated for
the intercity series which Washington
and Richmond now play.
Amateurs Start Here.
Two days of sunshine, the promise
of a little more baltnv weather, and
the proximity of the regular baseball
beason serve to bring out announce
ments and plans of the various amateur
baseball leagues and startle the fans
with a little real dope.
Those who have wondered about the
Departmental League are pleased to
day to note that the famous organiza

Dr. Al Sharpe Favors
Playing Summer Ball
ITHACA, N. Y., March 2. "If a col
lego ball player wants to devote his
summer vacation to ball plavlng I can
ate no difference between his receiving
monej for doing that and the fellow
who goes out and sells something," eald
Dr. Albert H. Sharpe rornoll football,
baseball, and basket ball coach, todav.
Dr. Sharpe said as long as colleges
had rules forbidding summer ball they
should be lived up to, but be believed it
would be onlj fair to allow the college
baseball men to use their abillt through
the summer and let them make Just as
mm h moncv as the can
"There aie many pooi fellows on col

Massachusetts collegjans went right to
work, pounded out six hits and romped
away with the game. Finlay's poor

PITCHERSSTARAT
Old-Time Fallacy Is Disproved
By the Records of the Pres
ent-Day Hurlers.
CLEVELAND, Slarch 29. Now and
then some baseball manager or writer
comes before the public with the sug
gestion that the pitchers be relieved of
the formality of batting, arguing that
most of the pitchers are deuces in the
art of batting, anyway, and should be
allowed to stick to their department of
the game attempting to deceive the bat
ters. You do not hear this urgument quite
as often as In the dajs gone by, for the
bimple reason that the pitchers them
selves aro exploding the theory that
they cannot connect with the twists of
their adversaries. Take the really good
pitchers and you will find that few ot
them confine their efforts to pitching.
Tho star pitchers are real all-around
plavers They do not depend entirely
upon the cunning and strength of their
salary arms. They know how to field,
and do field with skill. They know how
to bat, and demonstrate their ability
along that line when put to the test.
Lead American League.
Joe Wood led the American League
pitchers in victories. He batted .200,
his hits Including thirteen doubles, a
triple and a homo run. He made but
four errors in forty-three games. Eddie
Plank, who lost hut six games, rank
ing next to Wood, batted .267 and field
ed without an error. Walter Johnson,
the pitching marvel hit VH, six dou
I'Vs four triples and two homers going
. ins credit. He also fielded his po
sition splendidlv. Jack Coombs, who
won twentj-one and lost ten gam-iJ,
batted .2.m and did not make a fielding
error. Jean Dubuc. of the Tigers, lei
his teammates in victories, batted .27ti
and erred but ti.rte times. McConnell,
f the Yankees, hit .237, while Russell
Ford batted ..Mi, The two led the
Yankee hurlers In victories Ford was
also among the leaders In fielding Fred
llliipdlng was t'if Nans' most conistcnl
v inner. He ll Ideii ecellentlv and bit
ted well Kil Walsh was another who
helped himself out by his own bat
ting, a- did Unrgp Mullln. of Detroit.
Chief Uendc- is nlso Ip the list.
Starred In Field.
II-ndrjx, the leading pitcher in the
National League, led the Beavers in
fielding and batted .322, his collection
of drlvs including ten doubles, six
triples and one four-sacker. Mathew
son, Crandall. W'lltse, Camnltz, Ruck
r, Urennan and Marquard also battod
well and rankrd high as fielders as
well.
It go(s to show that class tells HaJ
Joe Wood, Russell Tord. Ed Walsh.
Hendryx, Wallet Johnson, Coombs or
Plank elected to plav some other po
sition, the cha-ices ,nc that he would
l.av suicf ec-de.i, providing ho had
brought th same eiierj to bear upon
his wck that he devoted to pitching.

Lafayette Overcomes
A Thirteen Hoodoo
CHAPEL HILL. N. C. March 2t
Lafavette proved that It eould over

Sporting Gossip
"Every Knock Is a Boost.'
Fans are happy.
The fans are happy, having seen the
good condition of their heroes at the
Florida avenue ball park. Comparing
the two big league teams, the Climbers
seem in far better shape than the
Phillies. This is a good argument for
going only to Charlottesville. The
Phillies had farmer weather, and must
now acclimate themselves before the sea
son opens.
Wolter is out.
Harry Wolter's leg, which he broke
last season, is bothering him again so
much that he Is not expected to open
the campaign with the Yankees, Jack
Lelivelt taking his place. This Is unfor
tunate, for Wolter Is a slugger, a good
fielder, and very fast on the bases.
Joe Is there.
Joe Engcl showed vesterday against
the Phillies that he is there. He has
improved wonderfully in one season,
and the war correspondents were not
far from the correct line of dopo when
they told us a while back that Joe
would be a regular this year. He seems
to have gained control, all he needed
last season. Wc are all with you, too,
Joe.
Sunday baseball here?
Now fans are petitioning for Sunday
baseball here, and, with no law against
It. there is a nosslbilltv of its comlnc.
President Noyes was opposed to Sunday
baseball, and never made any attempt
to stage it. However, the present heads
of the club may think otherwise, and
I endeavor to have the Climbers play hero
Sundajs In the near future.
Western docs well.
Dave White is receiving congratula
tions today for having taken his West
ern High School kids out to M. A. C.
and handing the college team a trim
ming, with "L'nz" Brewer In the box.
Western has been highly touted, and
showed well yesterdav. The Red and
White looks good to all of the high
school followers.
Record entry list.
A record entry list in the public school
athletic games In Baltimore tonight
leads Washington enthusiasts to wonder
why such a thing cannot be consum
mated here. Washington Is far behind
In promoting athletic games for its
schoolbovs, either indoors or outdoo-s.
A big meet outdoors would do wonders
for the vour.gstcrs here.
To get a test.
Georgetown will bo tested against the
Navy this afternoon, and unless the
Blue nn,i Gray comes forward with
something better than It showed against
Yale, there will be no attempt neces
sary to excuse the team The Naval
Academy has a pood ball team, and
Georgetown will need evcrv thing to win.
At the same time the Blue and Gray
may come out of It all right.
Amateurs pick up.
While the amateur leagues will not
get under way for more than a month,
the leagues are getting out plans and
making their schedules for the season.
There will probablv be the same num
ber taking In the games this vear, but
thev nppeai to be slow In getting ac
tion. The association will boom along
as usual, once tho games start

TO PETITION JLM.
Local Clubs Demand That Ama
teur Union Make Them Inde
pendent of Baltimore.
Dissatisfaction with the manner in
which they have been treated by the
South Atlantic Branch of the Amateur
Athletic Union, which embraces Balti
more and Washington, was the keynote
of the meeting attended by all but two
athletic organizations of Washington,
at the Y. SI. C. A. last night.
Eight Federation clubs were present
to help better conditions. They are:
The Y. 21. C. A.. Slemorial Athletic
Club, Epiphany Church, Peck Memorial
Church, National Guards, Aloyslus,
Playgrounds, and tho Georgetown Col
legians. It was the sense of the meeting that
the main body of the A. A. U. be pe
titioned to grant Washington city a
separate franchise in the union, and to
allow it to conduct its own business,
without dependence on the Baltimore
contingent.
Allege Unfair Treatment.
It was brought out by ample evidence
that Baltimore has been inclined to
hold all of the championships of the
South Atlantic section in the Monumen
tal City and that when meetings were
held to decide where such champion
ships should be held, that the Wash
ington vote wus ignored at all times
despite the fact that It often outnum
bered that of Baltimore. Every meetlns
of the South Atlantic branch officials
has been called to take place In Balti
more, invariably causing the Washing
ton members to incur the expense of
a trip to the Mar land city.
These actions, together with numer
ous smaller and more aggrevating ones
have been responsible for District ath
letes pulling away from the A. A. IJ.
The result Is the. organization of the
District Federation.
As a result of these conditions partly
detailed above, the Washington athletic
clubs became depressed. Each meet in
which the Baltlmorlnns participated
proved more conclusively that It was
impossible to get a fair deal, accord
ing to statements made by several pres
ent at last n'ght's meeting, and ath
letics for a while became dormant In
Washington.
Hold Successful Meets.
Ahout fifteen months ago the Federa
tion was formed, since which time many
successful meets, including wrestling,
swimming, and track, and field sporta
have been held. Thcso were followed
by threats of suspension of whatever
A. A. U. nthletes who participated, and
in manv instances the suspensions were
impos'd.
The formation of the Federat'on has
proved that the District Is not only
eapable of running Its on athletic af-
lairs, out inai me nignesi standard ot
sveceps nas resunen iro toe Independent
stand recently taken. The Federation
h.m maintained the same pure stand
ard of amateurism that the A. A. U.
dejnands and If it were today given a
separate franchise in the A. A. U. It
would be able to boast of as fine an
amateur organization as any branch of
the union now possesses.
A committee of five members of the
Federation- wilt present a petition to
the -V- A. U. within the next two
weeks, pravlng ttat Washington be de
clared a separate association and that
the Federation as a whole, be consti
tuted in the new branch.
Cricketers to Open

first opponent on Slay 11. and will fol

MICHIGAN VOTE IS
CAUSE OF TROUBLE
Action of Ann Arbor College to Return to Big Nine Threatens
WarWill Have To Concede Much Before They
Can Be Reinstated.
CHICAGO, I1L, March 29. Another
long "big nine" war, with Michigan
as the center of action wus predicted
yesterday at the University of Chi
cago following the announcement of
the Michigan's board decision to sue
Cor readmisrlon Into the Western
Conference. The Midway professors de
clared that the Ann Harbor school
could not be taken into the fold again
without a complicated series of meet
ings and that the old relations could
not be restored before next fall at
the earliest.
The Midwavites were surnrlsed to
learn that the Michigan board had
voted to come back to the conference
and declared that the move might yet
be stopped by the board of regents.
The Slaroon members believe Michi
gan will be slow to grant the conces
sions demanded by the "big nine"
and they are also of the opinion that
the b'ig nine" schools will not frtve
In to Michigan on any of the points
in question.
Dean Albion Small, who acts as Chi
cago delegates at the conference
sessions declared he would reserve
his- views until the faculty received
word of the Michigan Intentions, but
the other members of the Chicago
board made positive statements to the
effect that Chicago would not con
cede the points for which she has
stood for the last few years. The
Slldwayites will not agree to the loss
of faculty control or to the resump
tion of the training table.
No Decision Before Fall.
While the Mldwayltes have not heard
direct from Ann Arbor, they gathered
from the accounts of the Michigan
meeting that the Wolverines would be
willing to give up the training table
and would make an attempt to have
the regents permit a kind of faculty
control. As Michigan has been in
formed that her petition will not be
considered until faculty control Is re
stored. It Is believed at the Slldwav that
the control of athletics at Ann Arbor

feasors to make Michigan's caa
brighter.
Dr. Dudley Reed, of the Chlcag
board of ahletlcs, stated that Mich!
xan's petition, in case one should b
made, could not be considered befor
the June conference meeting, and de
clared that any action in June woul
have to be referred to the varlou
faculties for sanction before it woul
be official.
"The Michigan question will hardl.
be considered by mail, and doubtlea
will not come ud. If at nit ..?,.
June," he declared. "It looks as if th
matter could not be settled one wa'
or the other until the fall meeting
and this may mean that Michigan wll
have no dates with conference col
leges this year after all. as accordtni
to the present rules the "big nine
schools are not permitted to pla
Michigan.
Against Training Table.
"Slichigan probably will give up it
attempt to keep the training table,
have heard that there Is an impressio.
abroad that some of the Western col
leges think the conference favors th
training table now. because it allow
athletes to eat together at certai
times. This Is far from beings th
case. In fact, the conference Institu
tlons win keep on insisting againa
the training table.
"The only way that Michigan ca.
return to t,he conference Is by havlni
complete faculty control, as has bee:
