Form Ghcs Crimson Best Chance in
Intercollegiate Meet with Blue
Fighting Hard.
Eight years ago Harvard won the intercollegiate
track and field championships at the now .dis
mantled" Berkeley Ova.. There have been some
mighty good track teams turned out of Cambridge
since that time, but none of them strong enough
to wtn this premier event in the college athletic
•world. Th's year, aowever. unless some of the
Crimson athletes 'show a big reversal in form, they
will curry off the Intercollegiate title, which will
be decided in lbs Stadium at Cambridge on Friday
and Saturday of this week.
On the form displayed in the dual meet? this year
the flght for first place lies between the two great
. — Harvard and Yale. Since 1901 Yale has been
the victor three times. At first glance it would
•eein- that Yale had Oat call over Harvard because
nt the victory- In the dual meet last Saturday.
But a closer analysis will show that in some of
the events In which the bulldog defeated Harvard
there are even faster and stronger men in the
other colleges, white Harvard's point winners In
the dual meet are likely to repeat in the inter
collegiate meet.
Cornell has won three of the last four meets.
Pennsylvania being victorious in 1907. The Ithacans
can hardly finish better than third this year un
less Jack iioakley's : track and field experts show
to much better advantage than they have done In
the preliminary contests this year. Princeton, a
weakling on th« cinder path, lias a decidedly
stronger team than usual, and, under the able
tutelage of A' Copland, the Tigers may prove some
what of a surprise. It is a good bet that Prince
ton will finish among the first four. Pennsylvania
has lost all of her great stars. including Cartmell,
Whitman. Taylor and Jones, so that the Quakers
are hardly a factor.
An a genera! rule, The college which scores 35
points has a fi7se chance 10 bear off the massive
cup. This yrar thtre are so few stars among the
smaller colleges that the big teams should garner
more points than usual, and it seems safe to pre
dict that the winning team will total close to 40
If the »e«t»p' is fine and the track is fast there
1* hardly a doubt that one or more records will
be made in the giant Stadium. The best chances
for new marks seem to be in the half-mile, won
by E. B. Parse of Yale, in 1 minute £•> seconds,
four years ago; In the mil*, the present mark for
which is 4 minutes 20 3-5 seconds, made by Guy
Haskins. of Pennsylvania, in 15VT : in the hammer
throw. of. 1W feet 10 Inches, male by John De Witt,
of Princeton, in \9"2. the pole vault of 12 feet. made
.by Welter Dray, of Yale, a year ago. and in the
shot put of 4€ feet s^i inches, made by W. Kreuger,
of. Swarthmore, two years ago.
Comparisons of the performances of the various
athletes form tit* only basis for forecasting the re
sults of the everts to be decided in the Stadium.
If Jimmy Rector were to compete on Friday and
Saturday lie would undoubtedly be the first choice
for the sprints. But despite various statements to
the contrary he will not run, for Virginia is not
• member of th« Intercollegiate Association and
for that reason lie is barred from competition In
the big meet Even If he were eligible he would
have his work cut out for him, for Harvard has an
entry for the dashes In R. C. Foster who is able
to give a good account of himself in any com
pany. The Crimson sprinter lias yet to meet de
feat this year, his best time for the hundred being
19 seconds flat and for th» furlong 21 2-5 seconds.
None, of the other college men can approach his
mark liar the latter race. TV. L. Dawbarn. of
Princeton, Is probably the next best man. Gamble,
of .Princeton; Sherman, of Dartmouth; Cary and
« Turner, of Yale, and M«-Arthur. of Cornell, are
other possible point winners.
There is no man in college at present who is as
classy a quarter-mile'- as the iate J. B. Taylor,
the negrc. at Pennsylvania, who set the mark of
45 4-5 seconds in 19>T. This year E. K. Merrihew.
of Harvard, who finished second to Taylor last
year, has the call for first honors on the strength
of 'bis fine race in the Yale-Harvard dual meet.
» hi^h he won in 02-5 seconds. De gelding, also
of Harvard, is almo«t as fast as Slerribew and may
b*> the ruJiner-up. Otter fast quarter-milcrs In
clude R. \Y. Hitchcock, of Cornea; R. W. La
Montagn*. of Yale, and A. Conger, of Princeton.
V F. Beck, of Pennsylvania, has made the fastest
time for the half-mile this year, but he will have
a hard fight on his hands to defeat R. A. Spitzer,
of Yale. The latter captured this event at New
Haven a week ago in rattling good time. and he
was not pushed at any stage of the journey. There
should be a battle royal between these two men,
and the one who breasts the tape first will prob
ably have a new mark to his credit. Captain
French or Cornell is in fine form and may take
third place, with M. D. Kirjassoff, of Yale, another
possible point winner. C. H. Whiteley. of Prince
ton, as a chance to crowd into one of the places
and up*et calculations slightly.
. Most of the men who compete in the mile race
may come. out for..the two-mile event. It is not
likely, however.; • ..-.1 the man who is returned the
winner in the first contest will repeat In the second.
There are three distance men who are likely to
•core at both distances— H. Jacques, of Harvard,
third in the "cross-count ry at Princeton last No
vember land winner of the m!le and two-mile at
the Yale-Harvard meet; W. C. Paul!, of Pennsyl
vania, who has made the be« time at both dis
tances this year and won both races easily in the
Fennsyjvarja-Xta\ y meet, and W. L Mr-Gee, of
Princeton, who won the mile against Cornell and
both races against Yule. It Is a difficult problem
to decide how to place these -men. and racing luck
may have much to-do with the final result. The
oth*r. ; roen who must be taken into consideration
are P. J. Taylor and i.'. C Young, o* Comel 1 ., the
latter the winner of the "cross-country race last
fill; G. A. 1.'.: of Michigan, and A Coney, of
Yale. - - -•
Captain . Howe; of Yale, is without a doubt the
best of the hurdlers, as attested by his sterling
victories over the timbers in the Yale-Harvard
meet. A year ago in the Intercollegiate meet he
won over the low sticks and, finished fourth in the
l»->art3 race. He is a much faster man this year
and ha« no competitor of the class of Shaw, of
Dartmouth, to worry him. J. C. Talcott. of Cor
nell, second- in the high hurdle race last year and
winner against Princeton In 15 2-5 seconds, will
aure'y press HoVe hard. M. Dwight. of Princeton,
another 15 2-5 efconds man. will be among the
point winners, while the others who have a chance
to figure are Captain Rand, of Harvard: Gardner,
hi* teammate, or.d Captain Hartranft. of Pennayl
j raria. cecond in the low hurdles In the Intercol
legiate meet a year ago. but away below his best
form Uiis season.
-In the field events the task of picking winners is
hardly as perplexing as In the track contests. The
surest winner of the meeting seems to be Lee
Talbott. of Cornell. In the hammer throw. The
Ithacan giant has been tossing the hammer for
years, having broken all records with the 13-pound
missile, as a schoolboy. In the Cornell-Princeton
times be made a new college mark of 167 feet 4
Inches. He li a consistent performer and should
capture this event this year with a record heave.
C T. Cooney. of Tale. Is probably the next best
mis at the present time. He in steadily improving,
and should beat M. F. Horr. the veteran of Syra
<-o«. for second place. W. A. Goebel. of Yale, has
a good chance to get a point in this contest.
*W. P. Kreuger, of Swarthmore, the present cham
pion and Intercollegiate record holder with the shot,
< an hardly be supplanted In this, his last year in
college circles. c. C. Little, of Harvard, who fin
■ lined third to Kre'lger a year ago. has Improved
ovt bis form at 'that time and may move up Into
second place, an he Is now getting the sphere out
>lose to 46 feet ' "Ted" Coy. of Tale; Lee Talbott
and J. J. Homer, of Michigan, are fair performers
with the bhot and must be counted In the reckoning.
There Is no man among the high jumpers who
' stands out prominently. At least half a dozen of
the -entries are capable of clearing 5 feet 10 inches.
Three : men have sailed over the bar at 6 feet,
hut none of them is reliable. R. G. Harwood and
g.'C Lawrence, of Harvard, and E. R. Palmer,
'of- Dartmouth, are about on a par. W. Canfleld.
of /Tale. and. R. L. Rossm&n, of Cornell, are al
most as good performers. It Is a toss-up and im
posfcibJe to .pick the winner. The chances are that
!hree men will be tied for first place and the
points divided.

M. I. T. and Williams Close Up in
Xezc England Games.
my Telegraph to The Tribune. J
Boston. May 22. — Dartmouth was pushed to the
limit of -her abilities to win the twenty-third an
nual New England Intercollegiate field and track
meet from the Massachusetts Institute of Tech
nology and Williams here this afternoon. It was
not until Holdman won the final event, the pole
vault, that the meet was lost and won. Fr«m start
to finish the three teams had a desperate fight
for victory and place.
The winner scored 32^j point?. Massachusetts In
stitute of Technology was second, with 27; "Williams
third, with 24. and Bowdoln fourth, with 20^.
Amherst scored 1" points; Weslesran. 9: Maine, 6:
Tufts. 3. and Vermont. 2. Trinity end Holy Cross
both failed to produce a point winner.
That Bowdoin could do no better than get fourth
place was ■ sore disappointment and surprise to
her supporters; many of whom believed that they
had. if not a winning team, certainly one that
would be second This belief was enhanced by the
announcement thai Nat Sherman, the Dartmouth
etar, find the man counted on to be the biggest
individual point maker, had sprained a tendon In
his leg and was unable to compete.
Hawley nnci Palmer, of the een team, came
nobly to the rssc m and it turned out ultimately
that Sherman had won the broad jump on the
preceding day In the preliminaries, for no one
could equal his performance to-day.
Hawley took both of the dashes, which bad been
conceded to Sherman prior to his Injury, and finally .
Holdman took the pole vault, thus giving Dart- I
mouth the fifth leg on the" fifteen year trophy.
Sherman sustained his injury in the first trial heat
of the 100-yard dash. He had to drop out of the I
race before be had run fifty yards, and Immediately j
the betting odds underwent a radical change.
Gradually both Dartmouth and Williams drew up, !
until the discus throw and pole vault only were
left to be decided. A cheer went up from the
Dartmouth adherents when Hawley won the former
event, while two Amherst men tied for second and
third places.
Then came the final event, the pole vault. Hold
man won this, as has been told already, clearing
the bar at 11 feet 4 inches. Allen, of Technology,
was second and Captain Horrax. of Williams, third.
No records were broken. The bad condition of
the track and the intermittent gusts of rain are
probably responsible for this. Horrax did remark
ably good work for Williams throughout.

W. R. Dray. They are P. T. Nelson and C. S.
Campbell. Both' have cleared 12 feet 4 inches. If
they repeat on Saturday. Yale will get eight points.
.1. L. Barr. of Harvard, and B. T. Cook, of Cornell,
should get the remaining polntF.
If Cook, of Cornell, is in condition, as he wil! un
doubtedly be. he ought to win the broad jump
easily. In the Intercollegiates a year age his leap
of 22 feet Sȣ inches" gave him first place. He can
get out more than 23 feet, and that is good enough
to win the event In the Stadium by a fair margin.
J. J. Homer, of Michigan, may get the place, but
J. R. Kilpatriek. of Yale, will press him closely and
may slip into the place. Sherman, of Dartmouth,
will have plenty of work in the sprints, but he
should find time to carry off a point or two m the
long leap. W. F. Taicu. of Princeton, will prob
ably b« BBS wf those to Qualify.
of Dartmou'.r
of Yale.
Controller Met- to Roll First Ball
in Garden To-morrow.
The third annual tournament of the National
Bowline: Association will open in Madison Square
Garden to-morrow night with *11 five-man teams.
Ton two-man teams and 1,420 individuals entered. in
cluding the best of America's howler". They come
from dozens of cities In all parts of the country,
even from Canada, «ml will all be prepared to roll
the games of their lives as *r>"n as Controller Her
man A. Metz and a host of other city officials
take part in the usual ceremony of rolling the flrst
balls down the twenty-four alleys at s o'clock to
morrow night.
i Converting so many prominent local people Inte
bowlers at such short notice leads many bowlers
to believe that there will b- few strikes made at
the start, although b 'w"r:g superstition ha* It
that it is the best of luck and an omen of gr*>at
success to make i strike on the first bail.
At S o'clock th<- tournament managers -will for
mally turn over th* tournament to th*> New York
Bowling; Association, to be represented by Presi
dent J. E. Kardenbercta and the entire board of
officers and governors of th» k cal association,
which will, in turn, hand the tournament over to
the National Bowling Association, which will be
represented by President John J. < Mngen and the
board of governors.
In behalf of the New Tort bowlers and of the
National Association, President <"lingen will wel
come the bwolers to the Garden In a brief speech,
not. however, until several city officials have mad«
brief welcome speeches In behalf of the city of
New York. Then the ceremony of Opening the
tournament will take place.
Two special matches will he run off the opening
night, the most important being that between Dave
Shlman and Dave woodbury. Bbiman Is one of the
best known, bowlers In greater New York and mi
at one time the individual champion of the greater
city. Woodbury is one of Chicago's bern bowlers,
having .won the championship of the Windy City
lust season. He Is a member of Thompson's Colts,
Who captured the Canadian championship the year
J>eforo last In Toronto. The Chicago crack Is deemed
a worthy rival to the New York expert, who has a
host of friends who will back him to th« limit.
Woodbury will have a party of Chicago rooters
with him and, will receive plenty of support.
Another special match arranged for the opening
night is a five-man contest between the Knights
of Columbus club of New York and the Elks of
Hew Brunswick, N. J. The Knights of Columbus
combination won the championship In the Knights
of Columbus League this season, and ha« In Its
line-up some of tho best bowlers In the order, while
their rivals from New Jersey are all experts, hav
ing won the championship of the Intercity Elks
League. this season.
Beats Point Judith in Final Round
of Westchester Polo.
In the final round match of the Westchester
Country Club's polo tournarrent yesterday New
Haven defeated Point Judith by a score of UU 1 * to
9»i. In order to qualify for the final stage New
Haven had defeated Sq-iadron A on Monday, whilo.
Point Judith on Wednesday disposed of the Squad
ron A second team.
Hugh Drury. the five-goal man. proved a tower
of strength for New Haven until h« received an
Injury on the head in the seventh period. The
veteran, after having his wound dressed, plucklly
continued in the fray, although he lasted out more
on his nerve than anything else.
Brooklyn Team Defeats Mount
Washington at Lacrosse, 5 to S.
(By Telegraph to The Tribune. 1
Baltimore, May 22. — In on* of the most interest
ing and host contested lacrosse games plaj'cd here
this season, the Crescent Athletic Club, of Brooklyn,
defeated the Mount Washington team by the score
of 5 to 3. In the first half the teams appeared well
matched both In attack and defence, and each scored
two goals. In the 6econd half tho Crescents played
a stronger and more aggressive gsmr, White the
local players weak«rn-<J.
Mount Washington scored one more goul in this
period, while Creeoent piled up three more, ow
ing to the heavy rains yesterday, th.> grounds were
soft and the players found the going difficult. The
game was played at Mount Washington, and, not
withstanding the inclement weather, a large crowd
saw the game.
Several thousand school children and athletes
wended their way slowly back to Manhattan yes
terday, and with many unkind words for the
weather man on account of th« storm that caused
the postponement of the annual novice athletic
meet of the Public School Athletic League sched
uled to take plact on the Curtis High School Field
at New Brighton, Statcn Island.
The youngsters went the long way with the
hopes of witnessing their favorite schoolmates in
action and were sorely disappointed. The running
track was heav> i.nd "de id," and it could net be
put In any kind of condition which would permit
tin races to te aeiu. The meet will be run off next
Travis Beaten in Team Match and
Handicap on Nassau Links.
Playing in one of his low scoring veins, Fred
Herreshoff. of Westbrook, won the chief cup in
the Invitation golf tournament at the Nassau Coun
try Club yesterday. In the final round Herreshoft
defeated Harry C. Legc, of Yale, by 5 up and 4 to
play. W. W. Pell, of the Canoe Brook Country
Club, won the second sixteen trophy at the ex
pense of "Spotty" Bowers, the Brooklawn veteran,
while the beaten eight cup of the first six'een went
to Frank C. Jennings of the home club.
It would be hard to Imagine more trying weather
conditions, and under the circumstances Herres
hoft's exhibition was the best golf seen in competi
tion this season. Despite the gale which whistled
over the course, the Westbrook crack easily adapted
himself to the situation. At the first hole, in the
teeth of the northeaster, Herreshoff got to the
green with a eleek, and after overplaying his chip
shot "stole" a halve in 3 by running down a 15-foot
1 Put.
At the second hole HerreshofT had an opportunity
to display his prowess as a. titanic driver. Against
the win 1 he drove more than two hundred yards,
all carry, while Legg, using iron from the tee, fell
short by fully forty yards. Realizing his Inability
to reach the green in 2. Legg tried to play short,
but his Judgment miscarried and the ball found the
bunker. Herreshoff, after reaching the edge of the
green on his second, won the bola In a pretty 4.
l,egg used his driving Iron from almost every tee,
preferring to keep on the course even at the sacri
fice of distance. Against a man like Herreshoff,
however, this cautious policy gained nothing. The
uncertainties of golf were illustrated at the seventh
hole, where Herreshoff won In four after being in
two bunkers, his recovery from the deep hazard
guarding the green laid the ball dead, while Legg
after a straight drive and a capital approach re
quired three more to get down.
The only opportunity Herreshoff gave his man
to win a hole was at the eight, where the Yale
golfer missed a yard put fpr a four. They both
brought off good puts for a halve In four at the
ninth so that Herreshoff turned for home two up.
He was out in thirty-eight, to an even forty for
the Minnesota champion.
An exceptional three at the tenth green, thanks
to a twenty foot put. won that hole for Herroshoff.
and another long put gave him the eleventh in
three. By this time I>egg was a thoroughly beaten
man. ami he. lost the twelfth through failing to
make the green on his approach. Herreshoff then
stood five up. rfrid halves at the next two holes
left him a winner on the fourteenth green. It is
doubtful if Herreshoff ever played better golf In
his career.
The cards were as follows:

Hecords Fall in American Henley
Storm FqlUs to Hamper Oarsmen, and Cornel] S ets
New Figures in Beating Harvard's Second Eight.
1 [By Telegraph to The, Tribune.!
' Philadelphia, May Despite weather conditions
I which from the point of view of > the spectators
j could hardly have been more execrable, the seventh
j annual regatta of the American Rowing Associa
| tion, the American Henley, was held on the Schuyl
; kill here this afternoon. <The heavy rains of the
j last two days and a brisk wind blowing 1 from the
northeast made the course unusually fast, and be
i cause of this, and in spite of fitful gusts of wind,
which at times almost blinded the oarsmen, record
after record went down.
Of the twelve events on the schedule the race
j for college Junior eights attracted the most atten
, tion. Crews from Cornell. Pennsylvania and Har
< yard faced the starter in this event, with the Crim
, son oarsmen ruling favorites. The Ithacans sprang:
a surprise, and. rowing with wonderful power and
cleanness, won the race in 6 minutes 26 3-5 seconds.
breaking the record, held by Yale, of 6 minutes 27
seconds. Harvard was second, trailing the Cornell
crew by Just a foot or two of open water, and
1 Pennsylvania was a poor third.
New York oarsm«n carried off the bulk of the
honors of the Henley, for they won seven of the
events. Philadelphia took two, and Baltimore.
Harvard and Cornell one each. The rain kept
I down the attendance to a few hundred and made
things generally unpleasant for the few who
watched th. races.
New records were established in five different
, events. Besides the one already mentioned, records
were broken in the first singles, second singles,
first double sculls, and the first paired oared shells.
The race for junior intercollegiate eights j was
i opened to oarsmen who had never rowed In a "var
sity shell at Poughkeepsie or New London. Har
. yard took the lead at the start and held it for a
I quarter of a mile. Then Cornell spurted and drew
I up on even terms. Fighting hard, the two crews
i sped along on even" terms for several hundred
yards, and then Cornell began to draw away from
the Crimson. She was never headed after this. al
though Harvard spurted desperately In the last
quarter mile and rowed six strokes faster to. the
! minute than did the Ithacans. The distance was
; one and five-sixteenths miles.
The Harvard eight made amends to a certain
extent later by winning from the Malta Boat Club,
of this city, in the race for first eights. In this
! race Severance. Harvard's ex-captain, who was in
eligible for the previous race, substituted for Ellis
in the Crimson shell and Harvard won with ease,
though in slower time than the first race.
The Central High School won the interscholastio
championship by defeating the crews of Baltimore
City College and the Georgetown Preparatory
School, of Washington. The latter had a hard fight
for second place.

Preliminary Matches Mai/ Be Played
in England in July.
England's national lawn tennis association and
the American governing body have been endeavor-
Ing to settle details as to the Davis International
Challenge Cup match"* during the last month. The
controversy as to whether the preliminary England
vs. United States matches of the ties will be>
played in Knglan.J (at Wimbled^pi). In this country
or in Australia seem.<= likely to be settled this week.
(Jrrvrge R. Mew burn, the British secretary, has been
In correspondence with Dr. James DwfejM, empha
ihting the fact that England sent M. J. G. Ritchie
■nd John O. Park* to this country last year, and
that this year it Is the turn of the Americans to
visit England. »
It is the wish of the Englishmen to play the tn
ternatior.al ties immediately following the A'! Eng
land championships on the courts at Wimbledon,
and this meeting begins on Monday. .Tun* 21.
Should the Americans accede to this proposition, it
would mean the hasty arranging of a team, for
the matches would b» played about July 1. As an
American team is a long way from being picked—
for such a team would necessarily hare to sail In a
few weeks— It is evident that the American officials
do not look with favor upon an invasion of the
English courts.
The chief difficulty which confronts the American
officials Is that the season here is late, having Just
begun, while that In England is in foil swine
Then. Seals C Wright and Frederick B. Alexander,
the Internationalists of last year, have eliminated
themselves from all team consideration. Bo the se
lection narrows again to the oft mentioned few —
William A. learned, national champion; William J.
Clothier, Malcolm D. Whitman. I>wight K. Davis
and Karl H. Bear, with possibly Richard H.
Palmer. Robert Le Roy and Wallace F. Johnson
added as second string?. Whitman. Davis and Bel i
are returning to the game this year after a season
or more of retirement.
Not one of the men mentioned is near form at
present, and that adds to the perplexity of the
officials. England declares that if the Americans
do not send over a team the ties will be, played In
Australia. As the matter stands the executive
committee is expected to take definite action this
week, and it may be that a team will be selected
and put in the Held at once. Lamed is said to be
willing to go to London, although be will not make
the trip to Australia, where the cup matches will
be held late in November of this year. f
