Cambridge. Mass, May 16. — Princeton, with
Heynigrr. practically Invincible, In the box. shut
out Harvard In the first game of the series her*
tf»-day. wanning a brilliant game by a ?=core of 3
to 11 T;.e Crimson batters were helpless before
the masterly pitching at Heyniger, who was at
the very top of his form. Hartford, who was
replaced by Hicks in the eighth Inning, pitched
•well enough for Harvard to win most games, and
had fine support. But it was not Harvard's day,
end the Tigers would not l>e denied.
Heyniger. not content with his great pitching,
made sure of the game in the ninth inning, driv
ing 3a two run* by a smashing three-bagger off
Hicks. This was one of the four hits Princeton
rould risk*=. and. like the other*, it figured in
runs. Only on* error was charged to each team,
■nd Tliere was much brilliant work in the field.

Cntries Pouring In for the Time TriaJs at Jamaica
— Some Causes for Loss of Power in a. Car.
Judging by the rate at w,hich inquiries are pour
ing into the office of F. J. "Wagner, assistant secre
tary of the committee which has In charge the
Jamaica time trials on Hillside avenue on June 5.
it is apparent that the list of entries will exceed
even the- large one. secured for the recent Fort
George hill climb. Mr. "Wagner and A. K. Parding
ton. chairman of the contest committee of the Ixwig
Island Automobile Club, have been studying the
plans /or the trial?, and. in consultation with the
police inspector and captain of the district and
Sylvester Mclaughlin, the. engineer in charge of
the course, have laid out the general scheme of th»
The cars will proceed along Hillside avenue, and
after completing the trials will return by a belt
road to the starting point. The telephone, arrange
ments hay.» been completed, and also the plans for
roping off the course for its entire distance. The
.grandstand plans have been placed in the hands of
the carpenters". This structure will seat three thou
sand and will be three times the size of the last
Vanderbilt Cup race stand.. Seats upon it will be
placed on sale in Manhattan, as well as at various
places in Brooklyn and other Long Island points.
The committee is formulating plans by which ar
rangements can be made for practice by the con
testants, but if outsiders attempt to speed their
cars over the course before the day of the trials
they are promised summary treatment by a special
detail of police who will be on duty.
. A most generous offer has been mad© by the
Jamaica Motor Car Company, of that place, through
John Leonardi, treasurer of the company. In a
letter to John Xiederstein. chairman of the auto
mobile race committee, Mr. Leonard! says: "As
we understand there is some question in New York
as to the accommodations which will be provided
here for the racing cars, we wish to offer the use
of our garage, which is the largest and most com
plete of any on the island, for the racers, free of
charge. Kindly advise them of the fact, as build
ing will be ready." The offer has been accepted by
the committee, with thanks.
William B. Hnrlburt. manager of the. Garford
Motor Car Company, in speaking of thfl troubles
of motorists, sa.id yesterday:
"Many automobile owners seem to feel «atl*fled
that it is th» natural thing when their machines
begin to fall off in power, and pay little, attention
to it unless it falls off rapidly. Loss of power may
be due to improper lubrication, insufficient oil.
poor oil, poor circulation of cooling water, over
ri'-h mixture, late spark, running with throttle
wide open for long period.*, and forsetfatneaa on
the part of the. driver in keeping the oil supply
up and well regulated. In any cape, th» result is
thst the cylinder and piston begin to cut. and
though they may wear smooth again after a time
their diameters are changed. «nd after a few such
capes the piston will be too small to fit the cylin
der, and leakage is the result."'
Louis Strang. who will drive the. Thomas car, the

Fifty Machines Start in Hartford
Club Endurance Contest.
Hartford. Conn.. May 16. — Many hundreds of per
sons, a large proportion of the enthusiasts in au
tomobiling. gathered at or near the Allyn House
before 7 o'clock this morning, to witness the start of
the 174-mile endurance contest under the direction
of the Automobile Club of Hartford. There were
fifty entries of all types of machines, and the line
stretched for several blocks, each driver in readi
ness to be called to the starting line. As th« law
prohibits racing over trf* state highways the con
test was not one of speed, but of car efficiency,
with numerous technical side issues of Importance
to makers of motor vehicles.
It is claimed that th« entry list, was th» largest

— General Cutting Chief Speaker.
A dinner was given at the Hotel Brevoort last
night by the subscribers to the recent automobile
carnival in this city to the newspaper men. After
all expenses were paid it was found that there was
a balance of 134." left over, and a good feed for the
scribee was considered the beet way to spend it.
General .lohn T. Cutting, of the, Oldsmobil»
company, chairman of the carni\-al committee,
acted as toastmaster, and in a short address
spoke highly of the press for its work in helping
the carnival to be such a marked success. He
then told of the work the press does for the auto
mobile industry in general, and said he. was a firm
believer in advertising.
He then read his report of the money eollc'-ted
and spent in connection with the carnival, which
showed a total of $9.5;5 collected by subscription.
The sum of $270 was raised by the sale of tho
programmes, while eighty-seven paid an entrance

Quaker City Lacrosse Players No
Match for Bay Ridge Cracks.
In the presence of the biggest crowd of lacrosse
enthusiasts seen at Bay Ridge this season tha
Crescent Athletic Club's crack team of players de
feated the Philadelphia lacrosse Club's representa
tives by a scora of 6 goals to L While there i*
much good material in the make-up of th« visiting
team, it arrived at the field short handed by two
men. and had to be helped out by the home club.
"With this discouraging handicap the Quaker City
men made a brave fight, but with Allen as goal
keeper for the Crescents they were only able, to
send the ball into the net once in the first half, of
twenty-five minutes, -while the Crescent men scored
5 goals.
Bob Wall, captain of the Crescent twelve, seemed"
to have his men in the finest kind of fettle, and
if they show as good form at Baltimore next Sat
urday, their victory Is regarded as sure. "Wall
made two goals In the first half, on passes from
O'Flynn and Kennedy. Lifflton and Kennedy also
shot a goal apiece. in spite of Dr. Rose's strenuous
guarding of the enemy's net. Moses made the
other goal In the first half for the Crescents, and
Simpson made one In the second half.

Blizzards Make Preliminary Work
Anything but a Sinecure.
As details of th- Automobile Association or
America touring contest for the Gtidden trophy. are
unfolded it is becoming evident that the event tmm
year will be more Interesting anil important thai*
ever before. In no former year has the rout*
been laid out through so much magnificent scen
ery, so many points of summer attcacttvenes* ami
so man; large cities. Never before has ther« been
planned a tour and « daily schedule that would!
offer the watchful general user such a, thorough
going: ami wholly fair ana natitfactory criterion
for judging the merits of a touring car.
Than never baa bem. either, any contest In
which the cars of manufacturers could be- «nter»il
with such assurance that »ney would travel strict-.
ly on their merit?, under an adequate and; impar
tial set of rules. Tne introduction of observers
and the allowance nt tim« for tire troubles will
eliminate most of the element of luck in the r«c
ord* made, and the public -nd trade Wai know
that a car that gets through wttli ii good »cor».
not to say a perfect one, must be a fine piece of
automobile building.
The work of laying out the route of the tour W
now in progress and about two-thirds completed.
This important preliminary work Is being done by
O. H. .Lewis, secretary of th« Automobile Asso
ciation of America touring board, under the direc
tion of Chairman F. B. Hower. Mr. I^ewis is one
of a party of four in a S-cyllnder Premier car of
4.">-horsepower. which arrived at Boston yesterday,
having left Buffalo on the morning of Mar I-
Thus far there has been no mishap to either th«
car or its passengers to set back th« work, tout
the progress has been slow because at this season
of the year even the good roads being chosen tnr
the tour are In bad condition, and not all In th»
shape they will be in July. Tha pathfinders bafw
had hard luck also in running from on« rainy •se
tion into another. In spite, of all. th» rout* Is now
nearly measured, all the turns and. landmark*
noted and the arrangements for hotel accommoda
tions for five hundred persons made for ntn« nights.
There are only four morn night* after Boston,
two of them at Poland Springs. Me., wher<» Sun
day. July 1?. will b« spent.
The run for each day and the stopping place* »
night and Sundays, as thus far arranged, are:
July 9, Buffalo to Cambridge Springs. Peon ,117.4
miles; July 10. Cambridge Springs to Pittsburg.
110.2 miles: July U. Pittsburg to Bedford. Springs.
Perm.. 105.4 mii«e: July 12 (Sunday), at Bedford
Springs; July 13. Bedford Springs to Harris
107.3 miles; July 14. Harrisburg to Philadelphia,
133.5 miles: July 15. Philadelphia to Mllford. Perm.;
July 14. Mllford to Albany; July IT. Albany to
From Boston th« tour will go up Into Main*,
back into the Whit» Mountain*, probably <Msba«id
ing at Saratoga on July 22 or 22. The details be
yond Boston will not be settled, until after th«
pathflnding trip is completed.
Following the usual custom, th* first few days
of the tour have been made comparatively easy,
an.! the harder days will coma later, in the moun
tains. The path-finding car has had. a •tremiou*
time of it from the. outset, because of the rains
and the fact that the- roads which will be fin*
in July are now quagmires. It has required, a car
of power and quality to pull th* rout« layers
through, and it has required courage and endur
ance on their part to keep at the work. During
th» first three days Lewis and his companion*
drove through mud and snow flush that was above
the running board of Th» car.
A blinding blizzard was going on when th« p*l
finders left Cambridge Springs, and considerable*
hardship waj* met on the way to Pittsburg. Th *
wilt not b<» a very easy run on the tour, although.
the distance is short and the roa.is fair, for then*
are many hills an.l dangerous curve*. The path
finders found a fin* reception In Allegheny and
an ovation all th« way from there to the Schen
ley Hotel. P'rr^barg.
From Ptttsbursr. th» route leads across several
summits of th« Alleghenie* to Bedford Springs,
where Sunday Is to b*» spent. Those -who -wont on
the tour last v»ar will be glad to> learn thl"..b*- ~
cause of the beauty of the scenery and; the rest
fulne^s of the place. This will b» a hard puH '>-
the cars, however. - "
