\ *7he victory of Jay Gould, who is still in his
awns, over Bttsta • H. Miles in the challenge
a»und for the amateur court tennis tnpion-
Aip of Great Britain was the most imoortant
happening: in the sporting world last week.
jTouns Mr. Gould now has the distinction of
holding a double title, as he is also the national
champion. His quick rise to fame as a court
tennis player baa been little short of remark-
E.ble. Hardly more than a year ago be fur-
Silshed a surprise by coming up from Lakewrwl
md beating the strongest players here, and then
went abroad t.. meet defeat at the hands of
pUles. This f« he repeat his success in this
Dour.tr>-. and has now earned the highest honors
tn the sport. Interest la U c match on Saturday
In London was heightened by the action of
Wiles in deciding at the last moment to defend
lls title when he had previously announced that
le would scratch Some questioned the sports
tnar.shlp of this, and Gould Is reported to have
pressed Indignation at his change of front.
LA.9 a matter of facr, however, it was far more
nportsmanlike to defend hl« title against a wor
thy foe. and those ho know Iftilee say it was
Lhls that led him to change his mind. The cable
{reports of the match say that Miles played at
the top of his game, and that Gould was tho
better man in fnc hard fought sets. In view of
this the honors for the young American player
were fc'rc.:. than could otherwise have been tho
pase. There will be .-i number of International
.•competitions this year in various lines ot sport.
md the success of kMild Is a good omt-n ai:d
,*wlll go far toward offsetting defeats which may
rome later nt golf lawn tennis, cricket or track
and field athletics.
I This week will be an Important one ln the
sporting world, and there will b« no lack of in
teresting fixtures. The Metropolitan Handicap
will be decided at the opening of Belmont Park
>n Thursday; th. Giant.s will be at home at the
1 010 Grounds every da> : a number of important
college ba*.- games are scheduled, while th
polfers. lawn tennis players, track and field
athletes and oawmen will be busy also. The
varsity crews of Yale and Harvard" will be tried
put, as Yale will meet Annapolis to-day in t i ir
rac« postponed troni Saturday, while Columbia
rivlll take Issue with Harvard on the Charle3
lilver in Boston on Saturday.
With the approach of the intercollegiate track
hampionshlps the various dual meets take on
•articular significance as a basis for determin
ng- the chances of the various colleges in the big
onteft. Heavy tracks and raw, cold weather
worked against fast time on Saturday, and the
ecords made cannot U- considered aa criterions
* the ability of the athletes. Pennsylvania
>uried Columbia under a big pcnr«. Cornell had
lttle difficulty in defeating Princeton, Harvard
lad a comparatively easy time with Dartmouth
mA Williams defeated Brown handily. Dodga
•f Harvard, ran the 220-yard daab ln 22% eec
•nds. and E. Bonaack, of Pennsylvania, and
*amble, of Princeton, both did th< same di9
ance a fifth of a second slower. T);.-sc are
food performances considering the conditions.
Is was to be expected, Cornell showed up par
lcularly atrong In the distance rune. Magof
m, of Cornell, and Eisele, of Princeton, fought
l beautiful contest in the two-mil. raco, the
ormer winning In 9:55%. Thla was nearly a half
nlnute faster than time made in the other dual
neeta. Lewis, of Cornell, won the mil* In 4:41%.
Cornell finished one. two. three in the half mile,
*-b!ch goes to show that Mookley did not show
lis full hand at the Pennsylvania relay games,
ir.other good performance was ihat of Shaw, <>f
Dartmouth, who ran the high hurdles In 15%
seconds. There was nothing remarkable done
kf any of the colleges in the field events. L.
1. Talbott the young piant from Marcersburg.
established r world's record in th.-> Yale Inter-
Kbolastic games by heaving the 12-pound ham-
Bar 193 feet. His work with the shot was on
he same par, for be put the 12-pound sphere 49
eet 9% inches.
|J The Giants made an enviable record last ■week,
md their folk>w< ere jubilant. Th«y not Jy
s?on every game played, but took the lead n
the championship race, a position which the
TanE are hoping they wtH hold tin the last game
Is played In October. It begins to look as If the
|Oiants and the Chicago Colts would be the
ijXeams to Oght it out again this year, bat with a
fliffer ' result perhaps, as the N. v. York nine
Is better and ati .- .- r to al! appearances,

reputation of being a pinch hitter and is cover

Is hir.is,-;f ajcali and that means much. Clii
iCago is playing good ball, and is equally as strong
ays it was jast yeiir. Pitteburg and Philadelphia
awe the only other teams which appear t<« have
;a fighting chance, an.l they do not* look particu
parly dangerous at this Iting. The Superbas,
,that hi-fstLTi the season with such bright pros
paeta. are playing under some rrightful hoodoo.
(Their record on Saturday night was one vlc
3.cry and fourteen defei They have n..\v lost
ten straight games, and are In ; :;,.. for tho
I>ooby prize. Of th< fourteen games lost at
Seast cne half might have been turned into vic
tories with a little luck. A number of games
have been lost by a Hnp!<- run, and the team has
auiov.n flashes of pennant-winning ball, but one
Joslng came has followed another with <il<
couraging monotony and hope has fled. Brook
lyn will probably be Ooundering in last place
for w(fk* to come, with a team deserving of
Letter thinrs.
The Highlanders nre making a good fight in
the American League They U»st two garnet
last week, but are right on the heels of the Chi
cago White Sox. wi'i.-ii are leading the van by
a narrow margin. The fight Is aure to be closer
tn this league than it was last year, as Phila
<«Selphia. Detroit. Cleveland and Boston are
ehoving strength. The followers of the High
landers are well contented with th'-ir ehowing
to date, nnd if they come home from their long
trip ln the same position th<y hold to-day flr.«t

I tor the first time this yeai The Secretary of
| the Navy issued forma] orders last week for the
I crew to bo to Poughkeepsie. bo that nothing
yiow srtands in the way. This regatta will now
j{ 'become doubly important, for there Is an inter
t cst attached to the athletic competition of both
■the naval and military cadets which not cv* n a
KJbig university can arouse. The mlddi<*a have
a:"been cutting a wide swath in college rowing
g' during the last few years, and have victories
jf 'over Yale. Pennsylvania, Columbia and George
ff;town to their credit. Therefore there is no
1 reason to fear that they are getting beyond
Ik their depth by competing at Poughkeepsie.
h ; They have been able io hold their own In every
!| branch of athletics in which they have com
peted bo far, and are certain not to be dis
r. graced at Poughkeepsie. There have been a
t good tnzny predictions to the effect that the
[liclidies have an even chance to win on tne
•iHudscn. There Is really nothing on which to
4 vbase such a belief as this, however. Those who
I ; express it fail to consider the great difference
fa the conditions at PoughkeepsJe and on the
■ Eevern. where the Annapolis crews row. Tho
first handicap which the middles must over
come is the greater length of the Poughkeepsie
* course. They must row four mile* there
and they will f.r.d it totally different from tho
; two-mile spins which they have been accus
" toraed io at Annapolis.

made onlj one hit off Drewes. Harvard de
feated Holy Cross on Saturday in a ten-Inning
game by a score of 1 to 0 and won from Am

Crimson team, although not playing brilliant
ball. Is steady and reliable, and will win the
majority of its games. In the opinion of many
follow* of the game, Cornell, Yale, Princeton,
Pennsylvania and Harvard rank, thus far, in
the order named.
There wen two most remarkable games lust
week. Cornell whs defeated by Pennsylvania
State after seventeen Innings by the score of •"»

Pennsylvania State, pitched wonderful ball. The
former struck out sixteen men and allowed four
hits, while Vorhls fanned fourteen men and sl
lowed the same number of hits. markable
as this game was, it was overshadowed by a
nineteen Inning; contest between Dorchester and
Newt- high bchoola in which not a slnglo run
was made. Bpauldlng, the Dorch* I pitcher,
had twenty-nine strike-outs to his credit,
Coincident with the growing popularity of the
automobile has come the call for a rc-bulldinaf
ar.d general Improvement of the highways ln
this and other states. It may be readily under
stood that the future of the motor car Industry
is ndent, to a large extent, upon good roads,
and the call should not be In vain. There ap
pears to be a growing feeling la. favor of legis
lation to this end, and extensive lmprov<
can be looked for in the nexl few years. The
farm< are beginning to look with favor on
motor \ ehii les, and many persons who wcro
antagonistic to automoblllsts on general prin
ciples are changing their views and joining the
big army of those who, now that they have the
automobiles, want and demand good road The
desired end could be r«aehod quicker if the
motorists would only observe the lawe of th.»
highway and mako friends Instead of enemies
for the pastime. Good roads and tho automo
bile Industry must travel hand ii hand, and all
thonr interested Bhou'.d help, to the end that tho
highways In this country may be as Rood as
those In Europe. It begins to look aa if the
automobile had creat a ■ land for bettei
roads which < ould never have been secured in
any other way.

for after the next meeting. M (torlsts have ex
pressed the fear thai all was not going smoothly,
but this is hardly probable, in view of the many
statements that part of the parkway at least
would be ready for thft Vanderbilt C\jp race in
the fall.
Charles T. Terry, chairman of the legislative
committee of tho American Automobile Associa
tion. say.« that there is little chance that any t>f
the automobile, bills before the State -' • pislature
■will be passed. This means that the same law
which has heen satisfactory to motorists for the
last two years will be in force. All hop< ha*
been abandoned of obtaining nioro nient toui

has adjourned until June. Mr. Terry believes
that uniform automobile laws In the various
states an only a question of time. Motorists
are hoping that the time will be hort.
