Loving Cup Will Be Presented to Jones by Students of Western High School
YOU MUST ALLOW FOR SHRINKAGE
WESTERN WILL GIVE
ONES LOVING CUP
s Students to Honor Athlete Who
Won Inter-High School Meet
For Their School.
WAS FIRST IN EVERY ENTRY
Brewer Is Second Individual
Winner, Being Central's
By BRYAN HORSE.
Edmund Jones, Western High School
track captain, will receive a sliver lov
ing cup from the students of the
Georgetown institution for his work in
the seventeenth renewal of the annual
lntsrhigh school field and track cham
pionships, -which was won at Satterlee
Field yesterday for the first time In the
history of the high schools by "Western.
A subscription will be started today,
and the boys backing the movement
say that -Jones will be given a remem
brance that will surpass anything be
fore given at Western. The fact that
Western won over Central Is all that
concerns the Bed and White adherents,
and while the points scored were KM to
the 30 for the Blue and White, with
Tech trailing for 18, Western is Jubilant
over the fact that history was made
In defeating Central after seventeen
long years of struggling against almost
Jones was first In every event enter-
ed and Western followers who have
. past performances at .their finger tips
v declare Jones, the best track man ever
developed at Western. Certain 'it 'is
that he approximated the performances
of the late Paul Cook, who in 1904 won
the 100, 230r and the broad jump. In
addition to winning these events In
better time than Cook was able to do,
Jones ran what is considered the great
sat nr n In the htch schools when
he conceded Domer, trie. Central anchor
nan. something- over forty ;?ards in the
relay and won the event for h!s school
In something like fifty-one seconds for
his Dortlon of the mile.
Brewer. Western's freshman, ably
seconded Jones, for it was due to
Brewer that Central's back was broken
In the '230-yard hurdles when Oyster
was defeated, paving the way for three
places for the Bed and White. After
he" hurdles It was merely a. queouon
of "how much" for the Red and White
athletes. -- T

Western has onco before defeated
Central for the.first time In history.
In 190. when Kortrighf Church was
captain of the football team. Central
i defeated bv 6 to 5 in a football
game at Georgetown Field. Yesterday's
track -victory was the second time that
Western has been ble to urea ien
trars wonderful string of victories
Brewer and Jones for. "Western, scored
between them twenty-three points, not
counting the five points wmen mey
helped to contribute in the win of the
relay. WhUe Jones was not intended
to tvln in. any of the heats in the. hun
dred, or furlong, nor washe approached
In the-broad Jump, he was fully equal
to the test in the relay, and in the su
preme TOomeni came iuruuBu Hi""
wonderful burst of speed.
Fortler, of -Tech. In the half mile, de
feated Scott, of Central, in as pretty
mart heady a bit of running as the meet
produced.- Fortler was more than game,
ind won in the last few feet of the
race, nosing out the Central man to a
burst of speed.
Rankin, Tech star high Jumper, was
ofT color, falling to make better than
all of the adherents by supping over
the bar at. Jive ieei io m;cb. ""
ley. the Western jumper, also failed at
five feet, but later managed to nose
out the others in the Jump off.
Bill Foley, Central's veteran coach,
appeared to have things pretty much his
own way up to the relay. Rose, West
ern's relay man. was competing in the
pole vault and Foley maintaining that
Western was stalling to rest up Jones
and Brewer endeavored to run on the
relay Up to the time Jones took up
the running Central had the race well
In hand as Stearns, who "Piedmonted"
his way borne, was forty yards in the
rear. After the relay Foley retired
Galloway. Central's star mller, ran a
reat race as did Oberlln. the rangy
baseball player. Galloway allowed
Bnapp. of Tech, to take the pace for
three quarters and then went through
to the finish in a great burst of speed,
although Oberlln gamed It through for
a good second.
Against the greatest handicap the
high school faculty advisers ran .the
meet. Weather conditions were not of
the best and had not allowed the offi
cials to get the field into condition.
Robert araurer. Central's faculty advis
er, worked like a trojan all afternoon
and got the meet off in great shape.
The boys handled themselves well and
while the field was crowded, spectators
crowding at the finish and around the
men In the field events, there were no

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.. May 3. With
several hundred of the fastest track
athletes in the country already here, and
others pouring in from all sections to
day, the annual Intercollegiate track
meet at the stadium tomorrow and Sat
urday is expected to be productive of
several new records. Shattuck, the big
weight man from the University of
California, who is given a chance to
break the hammer-throw record, ap

No one appears to be forecasting the
winner of the meet, the efforts of the
experts apparently being centered on In
dividual performances. With weather
conditions right, the mile run in which
Tabor, of Brown, and Jones, of Cornell,
should afford one of the hottest races
In years, with a strong possibility of cne
of the two breaking Joner world's rec
ord of 4:15 2-5.
Top-notch competition is expected in
the 100, 220 and Wt yard events, with the
greatest array of sprinters In the coun
try entered. Llpplncott, of Pennsyl
vania, is favored for the two longer
events, although Barron, of Harvard;
Janson, of Michigan; Dowser, of Syra
cuse, and Haff, of Michigan, besides a
score of others, will make the pace hot.
Herreshoff May Take
Up Defender Design
BRISTOU R. I.. May 29.-Nat G. Her
reshoff, although refusing to design a
cup defender, is said to be negotiating
with New York yachtsmen of experi
ence of which Oliver C. Iselln. promi
nently identified in yachting circles Is
said to be the spokesman.
Designer Herreshoff returning from
New York where he has been in con
ference with a syndicate has nothing to
say, although details of the conference
reveal the fact that the talk was on
materials for the defender. It is ex
pected that the yacht will be ordered
from the Herreshoff shops.
Is Gone Again
He's gone again. Rube Waddell, the
eccentric pitcher formerly with big
league teams, has disappeared. It is
reported that he. has been playing with
the Virginia (Minn.) team, but no one
can locate him.

Next to the TR's the hardest hitters produced by the nation are the
Jacksons Old Hickory and Shoeless Joe. To Heeler's advice of "hit 'em
where they ain't" these four added the final touch of "hit 'em where they
can't get to" a system even more subtle than the Keeler suggestion.
Back to the "Crucial."
The Phillies now have their next eight games with Giants and Pirates
the two clubs picked in advance to tussle for the top. If aforesaid Giants
and Pirates are to assume control of the situation they will find no rarer
occasion than this present one. So far the two have lost seven out of the
ten games fought with the leaders, and a decided reversal is required to
keep the flag race intact. If Dooln can wiggle safely by this next week
or fortnight without being halted no prophet is required to foresee an ex
tensive yawn in N. L. circles from mid-June on to waning Bummer if
not on beyond the autumnal ides.

imnno the nimnrted neonles reoulred to complete a universe are those
willing to pay out regular money to see a pair of thick-necked stews maul
each other under the guise of a boxing contest. A good fight is a good
fight, but an intermingling of untrained and unskilled blubber in a White
Hope conclave is another dish.
On the other hand as long as the people fall for it no one can blame
the promoters or the boobs who have been kidded into the belief that
they were fighters for raking In the kale.
The Cleveland Naps at present have a team batting average of .236.
Yet we recall when Cleveland had eight .300 hitters and yet finished third
to the White Sox with a team average of .224. Which isn't saying that a
hasn hit here and there still has its advantages and is not to be regarded
entirely as excess baggage.
Boxing Bill Passes
MADISON. Wis.. May 29.-Under sus
pension of the rules, after sending It
first to engrossment, the assembly
passed Assemblyman Geddlng's boxing
bill 52 to 33. It provides for a State
commission to regulate boxing bouts,
the contests to be "no decision" affairs
of not more than ten rounds each, and
3 per cent of the proceeds must go to
the State treasury. The bill will now
go to the senate. The death of Luther
McCarty in Calgary furnished food for
opposition, arguments in the debate
being enlivened by the Introduction of
a go-called "memorial" on McCarty's
death. No action was taken on It,

At last they're home.
At last the Climbers are home. Play

their own park did not give Griffs
young men much of a chance to -get
started. Now they should begin to
round into form, and' the fans of the
Capital are sure to be with them in
their troubles. You may be sure of one
thing, the boys are not quitting. They're
lighting, even against odds.
Foster's return .to the team cannot
come any too soon. His absence has
cost the Griffmen more than a dozen
games. The midget third baseman Is
absolutely necessary to the success of
the outfit, and the Climbers will not be
gin to live up to their name until he
Is back on the Job.
Naps are flying.
The Naps are truly flying upward to
ward first place. Nevertheless, the
team lacks basic strength, and few
baseball sharps believe It will finish
higher than third. If it lands that place.
However, the team is playing good ball
now and Is meeting Its Jusi reward.
Walsh is going.
It Is apparent that "Big Ed" Walsh
is slowly beginning to crumble. The
former star among "iron men" Is prov
ing weaker and weaker every year. A
man cannot go on forever, particularly
when he has been used as he has, and
it looks now as if the famous pitcher
