largest crowds in ihe history of local

The contest will start promptly at

In Poughkeepsle July 1 will bo held on
Cayuga lake near Ithaca, on Saturday
June 19, It was announced here today
by Charles E. Treman. Cornell mem
ber of the board of steward of the
intercollegiate rowing association. The
reason for the change Is Ik Si largely
on the refusal of the West Shore rail
road to provide an observation train
for the Poughkeepsle course and alsO
because the faculty of the University
of Pennsylvania declined to permit its
crews to row as late a3 July 1.

Richard, on? of the expert rifle shots I
i of the AVincheater Jtepeatlng Arms
Captain Richard, who Is one of the
' best shots In the world, and who la
; the holder of countless trophies won
islt rifle shooting, was trying: his skill
I on' the 1,000 yard range. The day
was perfect, -with a ' gentle breeze
I blowing laterally across tho range: a
i breeze that would have been scarcely
I noticed by the average individual.
Us force and direction was suf
I flclent however, to cauco Captain
i Richard to hoed It. for before firing
! lie carefully set the rear sight of his
, rifle at what Is known as one point
I left windage. That Is to say. his rear
I sight was so set that both the front
and rear sights would pr6perly bear
upon the bulls-eyo when aimed, but
' the muzzle of tho rifle would point

1 the bullet, which would have struck
; quite off tho target had no allowance

pierced the bulls-eye near its center.
! "Good shot, Captain." said oncW
the onlookers, who happened himJrif

' have to set my sight two or throe

, drawled Richard, you are not right
this time cither, Tom. I've got to
i make a change right now." "Why,
, what for?" asked Tom. "Man alive.
! can't you -see that tho wind has
i veered from the west to tho east?"
replied the Captain grinning broadly
at hfa friend as he proceeded to read
just his rear sight.
"Hoy," was Tom'3 surprised re
sponse. Then after gazing around
a bit: "Y-e-e-s, 1 guess it has. But
it isn't blowing strongly enough to
make very much dlfforonce."
"Think, not?" asked the Captain.
"No, if Isn't," answered Tom, and
he fell to watching cloBely Richard's

"for the love of Mike, Cap," he sud

Champion Says He Will Mix I
With Any Man in Country
at His Weight.
! Resuming ring operations July oln I
! a bout scheduled for Benton Harbor, H
Mich., with Charlie White of Chicago
as his opponent. Benny Leonard, H
, world's lightweight champion, will in- H
, augurate a cajnpalgn In, Ahlch he sa3
i ho will meet every man In tho country, H
at 135 pounds. Benny Is getting eager H
to break into the headlines on te-r
sport pages again. H
For the past four, month? Leonard H
1 has been on the Pacific coast playing H
hero roles in' celluloid, dramas. He H
I says he la tired of it all and wants to H
I get to business in the ring. He denies H
' emphatically that ho craves additional H
publicity as a boost for his movie Vert- H
i ture, but his denial is accompanied H
I with a suppressed smile. ' H
! Leonard is a real fighter, but he
loves the publicity end of Lift gamo H
perhaps a little better than most of H
the pug6 who have held titles In the" H
past quarter of a century. During tho H
time ho was engaged In making his H
now famous knockout list, Leonard H
was as happy as a kid with a new toy, H
and Invariably after each of his bat- H
tics in which he scored a knockout he
would search all of the papers and
read each account of his triumph -as H
eagerly as a lad of 15 reads his first H
i "Diamond Dick." H
It was his Insatiable desire for -a H
record In the slumber punch business? H
that spurred him on to greater efforts H
in this line than most battlers care to H
put forth. And he made an unique H
