tions, and competition Is expected to bo
keener than In any of the meets of re
WBt years. It has been doped out by
the followers of the track game that not

Western by 1 point, has there been such
rivalry and the expectation -of such

two years ago at the Georgetown In

eral athletes of exceptional ability,

wood Field. Baltimore. In the Hopkins

Col. C. Webb Murphy has been badly yanked of late by "conflicting
emotions." He has been undecided whether he should stick with the Cubs
or hustle back to Chicago to help welcome Frank Chance back among his
people. When the recent Yank spurt began Mr. Murphy developed such
a frenzy of joy that he came near choking to death on four separate and
distinct occasions'" It must be a buoyant feeling, at that, to see an old
side-kick emerge from the rut and start going again.
As to how one can account for these startling reversals we haven't
the slightest inkling.
If any one can explain for us how the White Sox started back in 1906
from seventh place and finished with a world's championship
How the Tigers rose In 1907 from sixth place to a pennant winner
How the Senators emerged last season from seventh place and headed
off the Athletics two-times conquerors of the universe
How, In fact, three or fifteenhundred other bizarre events in this
national hurly-burly took place upon short notlce
Yielding us this Information, we may be coaxed Into explaining Just
what assails the Pirates and Red Sox, and just why Brooklyn Is now one,
two with about the same ball club which finished seventh last year.
As we remarked up above, we may be coaxed Into some sort of an
explanation and then again we may not.
There is evidently a decided change brooding all along the line. The
old days are passing. 'In addition to the present Standing of the Clubs
it has been a week now since we have lamped "crucial series" or "couldn't
bit him when hits meant runs." Is the ancient reverence for tradition
about to fade out and leave us flat?
0 Tempora and Such.
The spectacle of the Dodgers up around the top with the Pirates down
around the foot of the champion Red Sox struggling deep In the second
division as the Braves continue to emit noises like a regular ball club
has long since steered us off this season's dope.
Later on we may kick in with a faint, half-hearted prophecy, but now
we can only wall with the ancient bard
Twas ever thus since a beginner
' I've seen my fondest dope decay;
I 'never tried to pick a winner
But that it hit the chutes next day.

Outlined against a brooding sky;
We start in with a lordly manner
And wind up with an alibi.

Despite the fact that Georgetown

aided bv the Blue and Gray nthletlc
authorities not to send representatives

The reason assigned for this action Is
that no three men of sufficient ability
to warrant a respectable showing are
