New Football Brings Smaller Colleges Close to Great Rivals
International competition in sport
ended rather disastrously for Amer
ica in the year Just being brought to
a closa, and only in oue instance did
American athletes succeed In carrying
off the honors. Conditions in Europe
prevented the carrying out of the in
ternational yacht race for America's
fsap, or the motorboat races for the
Harms worth trophy.
In other lines of sport, however, the
invaders scored distinct triumphs, in
cluding such features 'as the raising
of the polo trophy, carrying off of the
l)aviacup nod in other events.
. From an international standpoint,
the victory of the Harvard second
crew in the Grand Challenge Cup race

lerformance. England's best crews.

er foreign, nations, competed, but In
the final heat Harvard defeated tbe
Union Boat Club easily

Battery to Sandy Hook in record time.
The English polo team regained the
international cup after two unsuccess
ful attempts, Two matches were play
ed, the invaders winning them both
by scores of 8 1-2 to 3 and 4 to 2 3-4.
The amaleur and open golf cham
pionships justified the estimate in
which American golfers have held the
American triumvirate. Francis Ouimet,
Jerome. Travers and Charles Evans.
It is mainly due to Ouimet that fol
lowers of golf have come to look on
these three as pre-eminent in amateur
golf.5 It was Ouimet's splendid show
ine in the amateur championship that
established him as the leading player
in American ranks. A new star rose

CHINESE LETTER WRITERS

PEKING, China. The American
minister, Paul S. Reinsch. has received
several letters from Chinese signed
with their own blood. One or two of
them appeal for mediation with the
Japanese, others ask that America at
tempt to cause a cessation of the war
in Europe. It is the custom of Chinese
to sign letters or even to write them
w ith their own blood in place of ink,
when the reason for writing is grave
or nobly inspired. The saying is that
