WOMEN'S ATHLETICS 0. K.,
BUT NOT STRENUOUS ONES,
SAYS RESEARCH PRESIDENT
Many Sports Are Beneficial to Them, Says Daniel Chase, but
Others in Which They Participate Now Arc More. Harmful
Than Many Suppose.
By Joseph Gordon.
, rr rOMEN are going in for athletics too strenuously. The danger
of women's athletic activities docs not lie in tbe fact that It Is
" under-developed, as stated by cortaln exploiters of amateur
sports. Tbe fact is that It la being over-dovolopcd and to such an extent
that its over-development threatens Its existence., Tbe Idea of girls com
peting In hammer throwing, hurdle Jumping, distance running and other
sports which require a great deal of physical endurance is a hindrance to
tho physical development of women."
The abovo statement was made yes-1
terday at tho opening address at the
Sixteenth Annual Convention of the
Athletic Research Society by Its new
ly elected President, Daniel Chose.
In a statement given by Mr. Chase
to The Evening World he said ho was
not opposed to women's athletics. In
fact ho was In favor of them, pro
vided that tho health of the athletes
was considered and that as far as
possible tho standing of women's ac
tivities was put In charge of women
directors and coaches.
"Many spoils are beneficial in tho
development of women, but a great
many In which they participate now
are more harmful than many sup
pose," said Mr. Chawo.
"Take for Instance basketball

which most of tlw games are played
make them too strenuous for girls.
Rules, taking this fact Into consider
ation, should bo mado so that girls
may play without any fear of injury.
"Another great sport I am in favor
of is swimming. Girls can excel In
that branch of sport without Injury.
It Is not no much a matter of endur

to impossible to maintain golf courses
at the average school, but It is pos

opportunity, to take them out to a

Asked If ho was In favor of sending
teams to compete In tho events for
women at tho Olympic games, Mr.
"I am In favor of sending over
teams to compete in all events which
