Comment on DiimIi Itaetnif,
Dash racing would have reeolvod
moro s.ipport from trainers and own
ers If It hail not been for the shorter
races. It was the big Held In tho rnees
at short distances that caused many
to condemn the whole system. If
dashes are to he popular with owners
the shortest distances should bo six
furlongs with Heids limited to the
width of tho track, Even at great
distances It will not ho possible to
have more than one tier.
Probably dashes will never ho popu
lar with the horsemen until meetings
of two or more weeks arc held at ono
track. Hven then there will have to
bo many Improvements, As it is now
horses aro too easily outclassed and
the system Unit will allow these to ho

Football nt Went Point.
From the looks of the ninety-six
candidates that have reported to Cap
tain Graves for places on tho football
squad the West Point Military acad
emy bids fair to have a llrst class team
this year. The "plobo" class that en
tered In June turned out forty-seven
men, and all are big, husky fellows.
Although most arc green at the game,
some have already played on school
and college gridirons.
Last year's stars, Prince and Davis,
are back in the game, as are most of
last year's men.
By the graduation of Farnsworth,
Hlloy, Thompson and Ilackett the boI

the material on hand these places will
doubtless he ably filled.
The coaching this year Is being look
ed after by West Pointers. Lieutenant
Boyers and Lieutenant Thompson, last
season's right guard, have arrived to
direct the coaching of the team, assist
ed by other ofllcers of football experi
ence. Charlie Daly will also bo a mem
ber of the coaching squad.
Trainer Tcmpleton is again looking
out for the men and shortly will start
the training table.

has worked hard. He looks In the best
of condition and will be a strong can
didate to succeed himself as the held
general of tho team. Captain Ilogan
was engaged principally In directing
the work of the men In company with
Field Coach Rttfforty.
J. J. Quill, the former Amherst full
