HART NOT TO "LAY
BANGER OF INJURY
TOO GREAT:
y<>r t thall Captain at Princeton
Jfogf Lead Team in
Xame Only.
Howard Hart, captain-elect of the Prince
ton football team, will not lead the Tigers
on the field next season. After a careful
examination of his neck by a committee of
thre« . doctors and a discussion of the case
in:all Its aspects by the graduate advisory
cr mmittee. W. W. Roper, the newly ap
pointed athletic director, and others inter
ested in the auesuon. that much has been
decided. Hart's election has not been rati
fied by the- advisory committee, nor will it
be,, according to the best information, ex
cept on the ground that he does not play.
- It is probable that he will resign, in which
case Sparks or McGregor will be elected In
his place.
I Every one. at Princeton holds Hart in the
highest esteem, both personally and a* a
player. He Is believed to have qualities of
leadership rare in recent captains at
Princeton, and it is just possible that he
will serve as captain next fall, without
taking part in any games, in which rase
McGregor or Sparks would serve as field
captain. lieutenant Graves. In his last year
«t West Point, when he was captain, was
Ineligible, under rules adopted in that pea-
MM. to play » gainst the Navy. and took
part in no games. No successor was elect
ed, however, and Graves, although not
" playing at all. is on the records as captain
1" th*» Army's team In 1905. which played a
t:e with the Navy at Princeton
"We all like Hart." said a Princeton
rraduate yesterday. "But we- cannot stand
for a man with such an injury playing
football. Ati accident to a man known to
, fee in Each condition, should one with fatal
results occur, would give the game a blow
I from which it could never recover, at
Princeton at least. We owe an assurance
- to the parents of every man who has come,
! or may come, to Princeton that no man
! who stands in danger of death from the
'. rncst trifling: accident can be allowed to
. play football.
"There 1b not. a* we Fee It, much real
j f ear of an accident to Hart. He is prob
nbly a* safe as any other player, and we
never had a bad accident at Princeton.
But the man has a weakened neck, as a
- matter of fact, and what the doctors say
make? us feel that the sacrifice of our best
player is absolutely essential.
"It Is nonsense 10 say that Hart is op
l>osed to Roper. The story probably start
ed because the freshman team in 1908, of
\fc-hich Hart was captain, received little
coaching or attention of any sort. That
was a fault of the system, and Roper was
rot to blame. He had his hands full
with the 'varsity and had no authority
to assign a special coach to the freshmen.
If any one was to blame, it was Eddis
Dillon, the captain of the team.
"There has been opposition to Roper,
all right, but it did not come from Hart
I or anY other undergraduates. It was older
men who were against some of the things
Roper stood for. but there is harmony
now. because Roper and these graduates
understand each other better than of
yore. "We are all sorry for Hart and for
ourselves, because he is a fine player, but
we do not care to take any chances."
That statement epitomizes the situation,
both as to Hart and Roper, fully.

XOin After Ejctra Period
Wanderers Play Hard, Rough Game, but Fall Before
Hockey Champions.
In one of the. roughest, most exciting
and hard fought games of hockey seen here
In years the New York Athletic Club,
champions of the Amateur Hockey league,
defeated the Wanderers Hockey Club by 2
goals to 1 at the St. Nicholas Rink last
night. It required an extra period of over
six minutes to deride the winner, for when
the regular playing time of two 20-minute
halves came to an end the score was tied
at 1 goal each. After a few minutes' rest
the teams changed goals and •went at it
rgain, until finally Reimund scored the
winning goal on a pass from Broadfoot.
who had made a beautiful dodging run the
lergth of the ice.
Some disputed the play as being offside.
but jt looked like a clean, straight pass.
The Wanderers during the extra period
forced the fight and only for Mills would
surely have succeeded in their efforts to
win. Mills put up a wonderful game and
blocked everything. H" not only stopped
well, but got rid of the puck cleverly, and
on several occasions rushed out to check
ft dangerous man. Sc-idom has more brill
iant work been seen between the posts.
The fact that some Wanderer man was
off tbe ice half the time as a result of
rough work had a decided bearing on the
outcome. The losers showed a wonderfully
fast team, but they spotted their work by
unfair checking- S. Cleghorn was ruled off
four time?, and his last offence, when he
' ro.~s-checked <"'ooliean over his glasses
merited disqualification for the remainder
of the game.
The Ne*' York Athletic Club did not pre
sent so strong a line-up as last year, for
the two star men, Castieman and Sherriff.
were miFFing from the attack. They will
probably h<* back In the game before the
reason ends. <"larke took • 'astlrman's pla<<"
at rover, and played a strong, heady game,
in fact, every man on the ice worked his
hardest and fought to the la?t minute.
Reimund was in Sherriff's position.
The largest crowd of the season turned
out for the game, and it wa.» kept in a high
pitch of excitement throughout, for tlu-re
was never a minute that the fast pace
i-lackened.
S. Cleghorn made the first goal for the
Wanderers in the first two minutes of play
on the rebound of Garon's shot, and at this
stage It looked like a victory for the Wan
derers, as they were forcing the fight and
had the better of the argument.
Clarke was rlaving hard on the line and
getting in good shots, but Ellison wns hand
ling them well. Toward the middle of the
half the Mercury Foot men improved and
the pace became terrific. Finally, after six
teen minutes of play. Reimund made a go«l
for the athletic club on a pass from Olarkr,
who had carried the puck into the oppo
nents' ice by clever dodging.
The second period started with a hot at
tack on the Wanderers' goal, but th? Mer
cury Foot forwards could not pass the
i-trong opposing defc-i^e. Clarke wa =
knorked out with a nasty crack on Die
head, but after three minutes' rest came
bark. Dufresn.-- again went off for knock-

Ing Broadfoot into the side, and S. Cleg
horn joined him. leaving the Mercury Foot
ers with two more men on the ice, but they
could not take advantage of the oppor
tunity to score. New York got in some
pretty team work at this stage of the game,
but good stops saved the Wanderers.
O. Vtegnorn came within half an inch of
a goal which would have won the gam?
a few minutes later. He was checked right
in front of the athletic club goal, but as
quick as a flash turned around and shot
backward as Mills rushed out to block.
The puck vrent rolling toward the goal
with no one protecting it, but Mills rushed
back and just managed to reach the rubber
and knock it to the side. Tt was a lucky
save.
For the grratrr part of the etxtra period
the Wanderers kept control of the puck,
but Mills. Broadfoot and White cleverly de
fended their goal until Reimund got in his
winning shot.

big amphitheatre ha> been decorated and
adorned for the occasion. For days scores
of workmen have boen getting the garden
hi readiness, and at 8 o'clock this evening,
the opening hour, everything will be in
place.
Those who are not familiar with the sub
ject will not notice any great or startling
changes in the cars. For those who study
motor cars there will be many new and
interesting feature?.
Perhaps the most conspicuous evidence of
the popular favor of the Garden show is to
be found In the fact that more than seven
thousand feet of floor room has been added
this year in an effort to accommodate
the many new applicants for space! Every
available foot will be occupied by exhib
itors, and - more than one hundred appli
cants seeking space had to be denied after
nil the room from the basement to the top
most gallery had been allotted:
There will be on view an extensive va
riety of the latest models produced by mem
bers of the Association of Licensed Auto

the show is held. More than 323 different
displays, of which 64 will b« exhibits' of
complete cars propelled by gasolene, elec
tricity and steam, will be on view; 246 dis
plays will be- exnibits of accessories and
parts, and there will be 23 motorcycle ex

$750 to $7,500.
There will be a comprehensive line of
motor trucks 1 and business wagons in the
basement of the Garden. Here also will
be shown the only complete exhibit of mo
torcycles to be seen in New York this year.
Those who canvass popular sentiment
know that the Garden show is being con
templated with -unusual interest this year,
and various circumstances have ' conspired
to give exceptional importance to it.
The week of the show will be a busy
period for the motor car enthusiasts, and
those, actively connected with the industry.
Many firms and organizations have planned
dinners, meetings and social affairs during
the week. The gasolene germ will thrive
everywhere, and considerable sleep will be
lost.
Apart from the entertainment features,
there will be a number of meetings of a
serious sort by various organizations.

R. E. Olds SeLys L©Lck of Complaints Means
Plenty of Sales by Exhibitors.
Th* automobile show In the Grand cen
tral Palace came to an end last night.
rounding out a full seven days of crowded
houses and pler-ty of sales. The sun
peoped out yesterday afternoon as If
ashamed of Itself for sulking so long be
hind the clouds, and helped in a way to
make the last day of the exhibition ;.ett-r
than the first, so far as the attendance
went.
Through a misunderstanding, the an
nouncement in The Tribune yesterday that
the show ended on Thursday evening was
premature. It lasted for another most suc
cessful day, and wound up with all records
for sales and attendance shattered.
R. K. Olds, chairman of the show com
mittee, said last evening that he bad not
l.card of a dissatisfied exhibitor, which in
itself establishes a brand new record for
automobile, shows. This, of course, lndl
cat»V..that the makers of cars and acces
sories nn'\V«/»,ccompllshed the purpose in
tended when spaVM»Q-as engaged at the
Palace— business. \Vhen'iv'--*r*reailized that
the average cost to a motor car mVJfce; # X° r
floor space, transportation charges for tli*''
vehicles themselves, transportation f<>r
salesmen and hotel expenses if something
like $3..vi0 for the privilege offihowmg their
wares for a single week, tt will be better
understood that the returns must have been
satisfying. This expense of $3,500 is based
upon a careful estimate by Mr. Olds.
"While th« inclement, variable weather
of show week did not stop visitors from
thronging the Palace day and night, it
did prevent car demonstration. In shows
of former years many prospective purchas
ers have h«»en won over to the merits of a
car through a trial spin in the park. Snow,
z«:ro temperature, ice, rain and sleet have
made demonstrations practically Impossible
di;rlng the last seven days. But the aver
age user of the automobile has become- so
well versed In the qualities of the known
makes that the only sufferers from this
rauae were the manufacturers exhibiting
their products for the first time in New
York.
Already plans are being made for next
year's show, for it is generally agreed that
shows have a great value. France passed
its annual show last month, but will have
its usual exhibition again in Paris next
December.

George H. Robertson, one of the foremost
American racing drivers, said yesterday at
the show that he. had just closed for the
Eastern agency of a new car manufactured
at IndlanapolH. His territory will include
Eastern New York. Northern New Jersey
and Southern Connecticut. During the At
lanta motordrome races Robertson first
saw this new machine and expressed a de
sire to drive it to the race course. He. was
! so Impressed with the car that he opened
negotiations with the factory and suc
ceeded in closing for the metropolitan
agency.
Robertson, as is well known. nr*t gained
international fame by winning several
races in 190?. the biggest of which was
the Vanderbilt Cup race. At the wheel or
an American mad© car he won the cup
away from France for the first time, cov
ering 258 miles over a slippery course, at
an average speed of 64..1 miles an hour, the
best time ever made in a cup race.
Until recently Robertson held the world's
twenty-four-hour track record, made at

he cap£»H<j<J.,.tlie Falrmount Park trophy

THE JONES LIVE -MAP
is the phonograph of the roads of the
entire world. You insert the record
of the trip you want to make. The
Live-Map "plays" it. Not out loud,
but with a pointer that points the way
— that tells you where you are NOW,
and what to do about it.
To have it with you is like having
in your machine a man who knows
every road, every corner, every cross
ing, every landmark, every puzzling
fork and cross-road in the whole
world. See it at
