SFORTftG COMMENT.
Xew* and View* on Current Topics,
A mateur and Professiovd.
Racing folk, or at least those v.ho went down
to Washing*. on. got a taste of their favorite
eport lost week, and the baseball fans will have
their turn this week, when the Giants get homo
to take the field against Yale on Saturday at
the Polo Grounds. On and after that day tbo
follower* of the national game will not be com
pelled to feed their enthusiasm by reading of
the doings of their favorites in the faraway
training camps, as the regular league season
will be formally opened next week. With
racing and baseball fairly under way. it is only
a step to a full participation in all branches of
outdoor sports. April is oftentimes a whimsical
tnonta. but the indications are in favor of it
being a warm one this year, and that will mean
an outpouring of the golfers, cricketers, oars
men and lawn tennis players among others.
Truly, the long closed season is over and the
grass is growing green in the land. The home
coming of the Giants, the continuation of the
spring meeting of the Washington Jockey Club
at Benning, the National Bowling Association
tournament at Atlantic City, and various col
lege baseball games will keep the interest alive
this week
The opening of the Eastern racing season at
Banning was the most important happening last
week. If the Attendance down there is any in
dication of what will follow when the bugle
blows at Aqueduct two weeks from to-day the
•port will be more popular than ever and the
turf will enjoy its most prosperous year. The
racing at Benntng has been above the standard
for a spring meeting there, and this also speaks
well for what can be expected later on. Other
happenings last week included the victory or
Anna-polls in the intercollegiate fencing cham
pionship. Sheppard - « new indoor record of
1:133-5 for COO yards at the 13th Regiment
fames, the winning of three events by A.
Bchnall. of New York University. In the national
■rymnastic championships, and the defeat of
Fearing and Scott, the title holders, by renn
and Plncke in the national racquet champion
ship doubles.
PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL.
The action of John J. McGraw. the manager
'©f the Giants, and Bresnahan, one of the play
ers. In objecting so strenuously to a decision of
I the umpire, in a game with the Philadelphia
i Americans at New Orleans last Thursday, as to
! necessitate calling in the police, was not well
irecelved by followers of the team In, this city.
I It was an unfortunate incident, to pay the least.
i as there was nothing to be gained, and it created
'•. bad Impression of the nine among strangers.
It la only proper for a manager to stand up
1 for his rights and see that his team Is fairly
• treated, but it is pure folly to press an objection
to a point that will cause trouble and orUxg.
; the team Into disrepute The umpires decision
is the law of the baseball field, and kicking
i of a certain kind is as useless as it is "«rti*»
• allied. From the telegraphic reports of tn.» in
cident on Thursday the provocation was great,
and MeGraw was Justified in making an ooj-c
tlon. but for all that there seemed to be no
1 excise for carrying it so far as he *«-**«•
Oraw Is a good manager, forceful and
•ertive. but his best friends hope that the n
ddent will not be repeated when. the ivsular
season opens. The Giants are in good- condition
•to begin their fight for the championship, an
•will get a cordial welcome when they get home
this week. . . _ -_.
• The Highlanders confined their work 1a.g.1..
to practice games last week, and the men so: a
much needed rest. Most of the players are ga
ting over their soreness, and in ten days :ii'>re
Should tv? in good condition to open the season
In Washington. It begins to look, however, as
If the pitching staff would be none too strong.
The youngsters have not come on as fast as had
beer,' hoped, and Chesbro win be missed. Chas*.
the hard-hitting first baseman, is also needed
badly. The fans are still hoping for the best,
but another week has gene by. ar. 1 Chase is BtHI
among the missisng. ,
The Superbas have I^-en playing a high quality
of baseball, and the prediction made a week ago
that the team would give a good account of
itself this year has been strengthened It is
hardly a championship team, but it certainly
looks like a first division team, and this would
mean a great deal to its loyal followers acioss
♦he bridge. It i? not the winning of games
so much as the manner of winning them that
* forces the conclusion that Brooklyn will be a
hard team to beat this year.
THOROVOHBRED RACING.
The report of the State Racing Commission
last week furnished fr-od for much thought for
those who are Interested in thoroughbred breed
ing or in raring as a sport. No better argu
ment could be made against hostile legislation,
as the report shows in comparatively few words
the remarkable popularity of the sp»rt. "Rac
ing is dependent in this state so exclusively
upon public patronage that it is fair to assume
that this patronage is the host standard by
•which its merits and its consequent popularity
may be measured." the report says, and the
figures do not belie it. The racing season of
If*"! was the most profitable in the history of
th* eport in this country, and this without any
epcciaJly fortuitous circumstances to aid it. The
death or disability of the great horses like Syson
by, : Burgomaster. Artful and others hurt te
tome extent, there was no revenue from the
bookmakers, no small figure in other years-, and
St cost the various associations close to Sl4M r t,(ii>,j
in its crusade against the poolrooms. In spite
of all this, The gross receipts* as indicated by
th* .*» per cent tax under the law, were over
S4.OO(MtOQ bigger than ever before. In 1895 the
; first year of racing under the Percy-Gray law.
the gross receipts were under ffIOQ.OOO. These
figure!- show a* nothing else could the continued
and increasing interest in all ma.ters pertaining
to the development of the thoroughbred horse
and the ever growing popularity of the sport.
Under the able direction of the Jockey Club and
the, wise control of the State Racing Commission
further advancement can be looked for if the
tills Introduced at Albany this year are not
reported, or, if reported, are not passed by the
Legislature. Not the least good which will accrue
will be the further development of the Breeding
Bureau, looking to the improvement of the util
ity horses of the state, through the dominant
blood of the thoroughbred.
ATJTOMOBILING.
The proposed race for, American stock touring
cars to be run over the Vanderbilt Cup course
on the new Long Island motor parkway next
rail has aroused unusual Interest and met with
the genera) approval of motorists. It is thought
that the racing beard of the American Automo
bile Association will approve and Sanction the
(contest at Its next meeting and this will insure
two big races with elimination trials for each.
as it is generally understood that the Vanderbilt
Curt race will be decided here again, although no
-ormal announcement has been made as yet
Track racing was never popular here and has
Been discontinued to * large extent, and road
racing under ordinary " conditions ,vas being
.rowned on a* ten dangerous. The new park
way, however, will provide an Ideal course for
tests of extreme speed while reducing the dan
cer, to the onlookers at least, to a minimum.
In view of this, automobile racing will receive
an impetus and the manufacturers can well af
ford to foster and encourage It, ivithln bounds.
There Is a wonderful fascination to a great
many persons In testa of extreme speed, and if
the present- plans are adhered to those who en
joy the sport will not lack for entertainment.
It Is cause for favorable comment that the
legislative, board of the American Automobile
Association is working so diligently in behalf of
a genera! federal law and a uniform state motor
vehicle law. It may be some time before Charles
T. Terr)- and his associates accomplish the ends
toward which they arc working, bat the seed Is
being well sowed and should bear fruit In due
course The draft of the Proposed uniform state
bill Is being awaited with much Interest. Speak
ing of automobile legislation, It maybe recalled
that no less than sixteen bills have been intro
duced at Albany this year. Pennsylvania.
Massachusetts. Slew Jersey and most of the
ether states are working on the problem also It
begins to look as if th« drastic law in New Jer
sey would be modified, but it is not thought that
any of the sixteen bills at Albany win be passed
l» would be a great boon to motorists if the va
rious states would pass a uniform law. and those
who have made a close Brady of the question arc
;»ot £ieccurag<»d over the outlook. >
GOLF.
The colflmt season* In the metropolitan <Jls

zatirn of. new ones are striking proofs of its
popularity, and must needs he gratifying to
those who believe in the undying- attractions of
a somewhat mild but none the less interesting
and healthy outdoor pastime. The general pros
perity of the various clubs and the steady in
crease of their membership, despite the relative
ly high due? and fees. show clearly that golf has
come to stay and that, no longer a fad. It is in
a strong and healthy condition. What is true In
this country in this respect is also true In Eng
land and Scotland, the home of the sport, while
the French ami Germans have come to see its
merits and are entering int-> the real spirit of
the same, which was fostered at first aa an at
traction for English and American visitors. This
changed spirit Is significant as showing the true
merits of what some of the early writers saw
fit contemptuously to call 'Scotch croquet." The
season of 1907 will be particuarly interesting
here and abroad In view ri the fact that our
amateur and woman champions, together with
other prominent golfers, will play in the blue
ribbon fixture? of Great Britain.
TROTTING AND PACING.
There is every reason to believe that Major
Delmar. 1:59*4. the conqueror of Lou Dillon in
the now famous gold cup race, and Sweet Marie,
2"-. foe. of th.- two greatest la. f mares ever
developed, will come together this year in a

YALE'S SCHEDULE HELD.
Waiting to Hear from Harvard Be
fore Naming Football Dates.
. fßrTe!i»grarb t«> The Triburfe ■) If .
New Haven.- March '31 —Vale closed for her
Eas-ter vacation without any arord being received
from Harvard relative to athletic nvet* after n^xt
June, when the school year ends. Yale has hrld
back her fe-otbail schedulf. rrprotinc to- hear from
Harvard. The list of games for another season Is
annually announced before Kaster/ Yale will cor
tinu«- to hold back the schedule, believing that
word will com* soon from the- <'rim>..n. for In
forma! assurances have b"en made, In private cor
respondence from prominent Harvard nun that if
Harvard has .'any football games next till one
with Yale will be played.
Outside of - the mmch with Harvard, the last
date on the Yal«* Schedule was filled last week,
when Washington and Jefferson Colleg< was taken
on for the first time. The match with this eleven
was set for November -. the usual game given to
West Point. it is understood that tba military
cadrts will Ret Saturday. Novcxnter 9. this year.
No date will be re-served for Columbia, despite the
fact that the sport Is to be revived at that uni
versity. Even if Columbia sur-poris an eleven
Yale will not meet her on th<-- gridiron next fall.
Another university which will be cut oft the Yale
schedule for n«xt fall will lie Prr.n State.
The gemp with this eleven wan the roughest Yale
ante forc<d to play last fall. \
Yale will positively meet no Western university
the coming fall. Tho faculty has set its foot down
firmly on this pAnt, Irrespective of Harvard's
action in meeting Tale. Some of the member* of
the faculty are still firm In their belief that If no
game with Harvard i:- played the eleven should
be ordered to wind up its season with the Prince
ton match and arrange no came for the last Sat
urday in Novemjer, as h;ts been annually played
with Harvard. Tlv-se professors think thai Yale
schedule is too long already. They favor com
pellir.s the team to play Harvard anil Princeton
in alternate years only, or else action by Yale
which should result In fav-.v of dropping one or
the other of h»r two great. rivals. Captain Uiglow
of the Vi.!«' eleven says that he will not follow the
action of Harvard in dropping sprit.- practice.
He announced before he left here for his Easter
vacation that as soon as Yale reopens the coming
we*K spring practice will b^sin. He and Head
Coach Billy Knox. fullback last reason, will be In
charge, and Captain bammy Alois, m tne eleven
lust fall will assist.
Captain ld«- of the Yale crew took charge of the
oarsmen just, as they began titeir Kasicr work on
the harbor. He has sligntly reorganized the crew,
with Coach John Kennedy, and it is possible that
iron changes will follow. Instead of lloppln. who
has been rowing at No. 6. Howe has received a
trial. Howe wis on the freshman eisiit las' year,

Captain Kobert Noyes, No. 6. p-ho resigned be

all the assistance possible. Y;>l- men have heard in
formally from Princeton that the Tigers Intend to

the Pougtikeepale regatta. There has been no offi

between Tale and Princeton undergraduates it is
taken for eranted thru us soon as the Tigers get a

Massachusetts 'Tech" Admitted to
Intercollegiate Association.
The Intercollegiate Fencing Association decided t:»
admit the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
to Its membership at Its annual meeting, whloh
was held yesterday at the New York Athletic Club.
Representatives nt seven different colleges were
present at the meeting, as follows: ••red. of West
Point: H. 3. Breckenridge, of Princeton: C. G.
Amend and F. I«ice, of Columbia: O. A. Howard.
of Cornell: G. C. Haas and A. C. Staler, of Yale;
Park and Jacobs, of , the University of Pennsyl
vania, :!:d A. L. HUss and J. Wcare. of Harvard.
The decision to admit MariachuVaUs Toi'hnolo?y
teas rer.ched after a long dlsou. In Which much
opposition was n:«n;f<'Stcd. especially 0:4 the part
of Harvard. The association is already compose:!
of Harvard. West Point, Annapolis, Yale, Cornell,
Princeton, Pennsylvania. and Co:uxr.bia. and the
annual meets have already become soifiewhat un
wieldy affairs. The Harvard repreeentatlirea, pointed
tola out, and maintained thai to l •; in anot.ior col
lege would so iucteose the number of bouts ihi
it might be necessary to prolong the aieet lnt>.
three days, Instead of two. as at present. The ob
jections of Harvard were dually overruled, and th'
Boston Institution was admitted by a vote of 6 to i.

hope of being admitted at the last moment, she sen.
a team to New York. lhis t'-am was present Fri
day and Saturday, but was not permitted v<
compete. )
The admission of another college has made still
mole, Imperative the need for suiii-- raustactory sys
tem of running off the annual meeting! The on
used this year caused much dissatisfaction among
many of the competing teams. One sch>*nie that
was proposed yesterday was to let the six colleges
in the association fight & round robin for the cham

winner of the Army-Navy contest. it was pointer
out, however, that this was a most unsatisfactory
way of getting at th? Individual ability of the men

CREWS START PRACTICE.
Board of Estimate to Decide Soon on
Funds for Harlem Regatta.
There was much »~tfvlly in row!-i? circles along
•ho Har!»m River jv>*terd.iy- It/was the real open
ing of the local rowing season, and the course
v.as alive with craft of all description?, from an
-ight-oared shell down to the ordinary rowboat.
Veterans and novices alike took advantage of the
~ood conditions for an Initial spin.
Alcng Scullers' Row there were two topics which
came in for consldt raWe discussion. One was the
announcement that Constance S. Titus, of the
Nonpareil Rowing Club, the present holder of the
r.ational sculling championship, intends .to row at
Henley this summer In the Diamond Sculls, and
the other was speculation on whether the Board of
Estimate and Apportionment will decide favorably
m the appropriation or $2,500 toward the Memorial
Day regatta on the Harlem River. There were
some oltiflrr.-rs who were of the opinion that the
;lert!ey stewards would not accept Titus" s entry.
T hi .' E .i! here . w^ re just a ' many others who believed
nat the national champion wouM meet no tvposi
non wnen he made his entry. However, the unani
mous opinion was that there was nomine against
utuss standing as an amateur. Titus will move
to Princeton to-day and Degin harl work to get
r.to condition. He took a short spin on the Har
.m >esterday.
Klnal decision on the $2,500 appropriation will
omc up before the Board of Estimate tor action
it its meeting on April 13. It is believed that the
..o.ird i will consider it a worthy cause. James Mil
er. the president of the Harlem River Regatta As
jocUttoo and t-nalrman of the rowing committee
it the New York Athletic Club, has sent out a
circular asking members to attend the regular
neeting to be neld at the Harlem Casino on Tn^rs
.ay evening to discuss further plans for convlne
.iiß the Board of Estimate that the success of the
Memorial Day regatta depends to a large extent
■a this $2.00t> appropriation.
It was learned jvsterdav that, beginning this
wee«. the various schoolboy crews would take up
iuarters In the clubhouses along the river and
begin practice for the Memorial Day regatta.
One Of the tr.o^i promising crew? «• •: on the river
yesterday was a aetuor eight coached by "Johnny"
Mnith. the veteran trainer of the Nassau Rowing
< lub. Th» men paddled up to Spuyten Duyvil a"..;
th«»n lilt up a faster pace coming home. the. stroke
running high for the last quart-r. The #ight was
boated as follows": F. R. Culley. bow; J. F. Fisher
2; A Welch. 3: C A. Coal. 4: H. R. Stivers. 5; C.
W. Stettin. «; J. P. O'Lnughltn. 7. and A. J. Fraser
stroke. Besides this eight. there were several sin
gles and doubles from the Nassau Crab on th»
river.
George M. Your*, one of the oldest active oars
man in this country, if not in the world, celebrated
his fiftieth year In aquatic sports yesterday by
taking what h» called a short spin of ten miles.
Th» veteran was in fin" fettle and fresh as a
voun«ster when he pulled iip at the Atalanta float
after his 'breather." He was the recipient of en
thusiastic congratulations.
The AtalanHs sent out a Junior eight, a Junior
double, a Junior four and a single. "Jack" Mulcahy
and William Varley. of the Atalanta Boat Club,
who were recently reinstated after their trouble at
the Hamburg regatta, made the river churn yester
day afternoon In a double. They are training for
the senior double races .this season.
Practically every club »h»ng the river was rep
resented yesterday on the course. Judging by th»
activity displayed at this early date. thts should
be a banner year In local rowing circles.
