nas spent some time In India and on the J
continent- He has been playing polo J
since 1870 and has played in almost ev
ery place in the world -where the game
Is known. He organized the first polo
club at Santa Monica in 1SS9 and played
In the first game ever played on the
coast on February" S, 1SS9. His first
game waj played at Calcutta, and he
has been participating in the big tour
naments, either as a player or official,
since that time. "
'The Game of Polo.
Dr. Edmunds talks Interestingly of
the game of which he has been a de
votee since early- manhood.
"Polo is the oldest known game," hs
said. "It was played in prehistoric
times and the plaques and paintings of
the old galleries show the ancients j
playing the game very much the same .
as it is played today. One of the Call- j
fornia polo clubs has. a- painting that
was taken from the Forbidden City by
an American soldier, which shows the J
Chinese of the 12th century pilaying polo ;
on diminutive horses, mucn as it Is 1
played today. The bronze tablets j
which have been found In ancient ruins t
also show the figures in action playing
"Polo is one of the most 1 intensely ,
exciting games, both from the specta- '
tors' and prayers standpoint. It is less t
dangerous than football and much more
exciting than golf. It requires great
skill both in horsemanship and in ex- (
ecution with the stick, to make a good
player, and the best polo players are
developed only after hard practice. The
American game is played much after 1
the English style, oivith the exception
of a few rules and penalties. t
"Four men compose a team, three in j
the line and 'back.' He guards the f
goal and must be an expert. The ball
used is slightly larger than a baseball
and is made of the root of the bamboo.
The clubs, mafllets or sticks are made of
Maple with an Imported wood handle.
The game resembles football in that the
points are made by placing the ball in
side of the goal pots The ball is drlv-
Ponv nolo, the snort of kings the i
world over, is to be introduced in El
Paso. Dr. J. A. Edmunds, known on
the Pacific coast as the father of polo
in America, has decided to locate in El
Paso permanently and will make this
his headquarters. Dr. Edmunds is here
from his pony ranch at .Willcox, Arizona,
where he breeds and schools ponies for
the crack polo clubs of the country. He
is also a polo official, who is the rec
ognized authority on the game in the
United States and has refereed all of the
big matches since tire game was intro
duced In this 'country.
Dr. Edmunds met a number of the
best riders in El Paso Monday and has
received much encouragement for the
game which he proposes to introduce
here- He believes that there are enough
good riders in El Paso -to make up a
number of crack teams and he pro
poses to have at least two teams in
condition to play during1 the El Paso
Fair and ExpoS'ii&n. In one of these
teams Dr. Edmunds, who is-one of the
most expert players in the game, will
participate, and visitors to the fair
will have an opportunity of seeing the
great English and continental game
played here as it Is before crowds of
from 50,000 to 60,000 in Europe.
Knows the Game Well .
Dr. Edmunds has been located in Los
Angeles for a number of years and has
held a number of high honors on the
coast. He organized she first polo
team that ever played on the coast, and
It is through his efforts that the game
has become such a popular one in Cali
fornia. He has also been assistant man
ager of the jjpnual polo tournaments
which are held at Coronado beach un
der the management of Paul Schmidt.
Dr. Edmunds also refereed these
tournaments as well as the ones held
at Santa Monica, and other places in
California. He recently refereed the
Midland tournament, which was held in
Kansas City, and as an appreciation of
his services there he was given a pres
