GALESBURG TO LOSE
ITS BIG RACE MEET
No Money to Be Made in a Dry City
ind Blowing Down of Grand
Stand Settled Matters.
Calesburg will have no races this
year or possibly for several , years.
When the city voted to go-di J the di
ricetors of the track were undecided
what to do but when the wind of
Friday night blew down the grand
stand a decision was quickly reached
to gi.e the sport. Galesburg has
long been advertised throughout the
land as having the only dead level
track in the country. The association
is a member of the Great Western
circuit and arrangements had been
made to hold a meet there this year,

GANS AND NELSON 10 MEET
Latter Agrees to Terms of former for
45 Round Battle at San Francisco.
San Francisco, April. 27. Another
meeting between Joe Gans and Batt
ling Nelson was assured yesterday
when Willie Britt. manager of the
Dane, agreed to the terms laid down
by the champion for a 45 round go.
He only stipulated that the $5,000
Nelson is required to post should be
covered by Gans at approximately the
odds prevailing in the betting a few
days before the bout. Gans agreed
o this, under certain" restrictions.
Nelson's $5,000 is in the hands of
Tom Corbett and Gans has' named
odds which he will not exceed. Nel
son does not intend to consider any
offer of 20 rounds with Gans. ;
There Is some talk of delaying the
Attell-Tommy Sullivan bout so as to
have it fall just ahead of the other
matches' set for Fleet week here.
Attell and Sullivan are still announc
ed - as opponents for April 30, how
ever. Attell will be a warm ringside
favorite, as Sullivan while seeming.in
good trim, has not figured in any re
cent battle. ,

Philadelphia, April 27. The char

of athletes at the. annual relay races
and field sports Saturday under the
auspices of the University' of Penn
sylvania was of the highest-order.
One of the world's records, that for
thej ''yfs vault, was broken by W. R.
Dra, ; of Fale, and 'another record
equaled. The University of Pennsyl

A feature of. this year's handicap
list will be a plan formulated, by Sec
retary Higgins of the handicap com
mittee by which the list will auto
matically regulate useir. w ith a mem
bership of 109 clubs, it is impossible
for the committee to rate every play
er, and even if the limit of rating was
placed at 9 or 18 strokes to keep the
list under 2,000 names, some clubs
would not be represented. The plan
is to rate the five .best men from each
club. Should a player not rated pre
sent himself for play in any W. G. A
tournament his allowance can be coin
puted from the ratings of the low man
on his club list.
The list will contain the name and
location of each club, the length of
Its course, and the- bogey and par fig
ures. In addition.the players from al
clubs will be rated alphabetically,
