Intercollegiate track and field records
are la danger at Franklin Field. Philadel
phia, en Saturday, if the track is fast and
the Treather conditions are favorable. ,
Never, perhaps, in the long history of these
■nnnal games has the outlook been so
bright for brilliant performances and hard |
fought Mruggtes. Some stars stand out. it
Is true, in Paul!, the fast mller, and Bur
dick, the high Jumper of Pennsylvania; in
Berna. the two-mile record holder, of Cor
nell; in Homer, the good. , all-round man
and clever shot putter, of Michigan: in
Kelson and Gardner, the skyscraping pole
vaulters, of Yale, and in Foster, the dash-
Ing sprinter, of Harvard, if he is in condi
tion to run. The stars are fairly well dis
tributed, however, among the different col
leges, end there are so many athletes who
«re above the average, and who. on the
whole, are so well matched, that it is a
puzzling problem to pick out the college
most likely to carry off the honors. If 1
Franklin Field is not packed and jammed J
to its full capacity on Saturday it will be j
surprising, as an athletic feast is in store.
As an indication of how closely the battle
for points will be waged, it may be re
called that in the dual games to date Har
vard beat Yale by 1 point. Yale beat Prince
ton by 16 points and Princeton beat Cornell
t>y 3 points. Pennsylvania had an easier
time with Cornell, -winning by 72 2-3 points
to 441-3. and down in Philadelphia Mike
Murphy's men are being hailed as the win
ners of the- point trophy. A year ago one
of my able assistants, in a forecast pub
lished In The Tribune, named eight out of
thirteen winners, four men who finished
*-<»cond, two thirds and a fourth. Harvard
won the meet, with Yale second, as pre
dicted, the former scoring- 391-10 points as
«tainst the suggested 39. It was a cSever.
almost an amazing, piece of work, and the
*.ame man is now working over his forecast
this year, which will be published in The
Tribune tome day this week, probably on
Kriday. T*nder the circumstances I can
rifely avoid posing in the role of a prophet.
There wore thrills enough at American
League Park last week to rouse the veriest
pessimist to enthusiasm, and incidentally
Ihe Yankees endeared themselves to ihe
hearts of the "fans" by winning six
btraight games, in most of which they
cam© from behind to pull out weil deserved
victories. The men are playing good base-
Viall, but, better yet. they are playing: with
a. never-say-dio spirit that shows plainly
that every one is working with the Itcst
interests of the club in mind. In spite of
ihe remarkable run of thirteen straight vic
tories by the Philadelphia Athletics, the
Yankees are right on their heels and safely
lodged in second place. Cleveland will be
on the hilltop to-day for one more fame,
folio-wins which the Chicago Whit© Sox,
who are having a stormy time on their
Eastern trip, will be entertained for four
same*, ■which winds up the "Western in
2 vasion. Washington will bo here on Satur
* day, - playing over Memorial I>ay, after
which the Yankees will start for their first
Jaunt Into tftA enemy's country.
As to the Giants, blame it on the comet.
Tor there is no other way to explain their
disastrous and unfruitful trip through the
"West. The correspondents travelling with
tho team say that the men are in excellent
condition physically, which makes it the
harder to understand the deplorable show
ing. la St. Louis the pitchers could not
pitch, the fielders could not field and the
batters could not bat, hot some credit must
be snven to Roger Bresnahan and his crew,
am, after taking four straight from New
York, they followed up their success by
winning three straight games from the
Phillies, who have been travelling along at
* pretty £ood pace. Fortunately for the
<iiants. the second division clubs have been
finning more than their fair share of the
fames, and as a result the leaders are Mill
jjretty well bunched. It is the what might
bave been if the New York team had held
Its form that is cause for chief regret. The
Giants havo throe more sanies to play with
Pittsburc this week. On Friday they will
be in Brooklyn for one game, following
«Mck they will po over to Philadelphia to
*pend Memorial Day. The flag will be fly
ing: at the Polo Grounds on Wednesday of
the following week, with Cincinnati leading
Tl;e vanguard of the "Western forces.

One day last week, after the. Philadelphia
Athletics had won their twelfth or thir
teenth, straight victory. Connie Mack, the
•stvit« manager of the team, was quoted
«s saying: "If my men contiauo at the
rresent pace they will land the Ameri
can League pennant in Philadelphia." Con
r.Je Mack is conservative, to say the leant.
If the Athletics continue at the pace they
have been going, they will land the Phila
delphia "fans" in Bloominsdal© or some
asylum nearer home.
It seems a pity that Lester Channell's
introduction to major league baseball should
have been cut off so sharply, through the
unfortunate accident at American League
Park on Tuesday, when his leg was broken
Ila sliding 10 third base. It was an un
lucky day for Channell. also an unlucky
Any lor the Yankees, as he appeared to be
needed in left field, and was playing in a
•ray to indicate that he would be a fixture.
Some days ago Dean Brings of Harvard,
lii Ms rej>ort us chairman of the athletic
1 urnrriiitf'-. made the statement that in
lus opinion there was more need of Ye
lwrn in college baseball than in football.
lii commenting on this "The Harvard Bul
letin" tays editorially:
It is interesting to tee that Dean lirigga
in h\s latest report as chairman of the
athletic committee states his belief that
Cbere is more need of reform in college
baseball than in football. la support of
iliis opinion he alludes to tripping an op
jiosinK base runner, "rattling" a batsman,
■"breaking up" a pitcher aail a visiting
team, and other practices which have been
carried on in college baseball for years.
. .*. It is a great step toward reform
when the chairman of the Harvard athletic
committee sets forth these evils aad de
mands that they be cured.
But, after all. these faults in baseball
«.renot fundamental la the pame itsUf, and
charges in tlie rules cannot reach them.
In that particular baseball differs from
• football. In order to revise the rules of
the latter game so that it may be accept
able to public opinion, twenty or thirty men
find it necessary to meet three or four
times c year, and even then they cannot
Agree. The Inordinate desire to win at any
<^ost is responsible for the abuses which
attend college baseball, and they will not
< : .Jsfcpj»fcar until the undergraduates of
American col loses— the graduates, too—
ocrne to take the sane view that there are
■"■orse things than defeat and better things
'.JkiZJ victory. It is not baseball, then.
~-.h:ch needs reform, but the college spirit
'■•id-^j appears In American sports of every
Had. ,
—■ ' _ . :
This !.- th<? cms " f the situation, and the
eCttoria! is reprirtci here because it crnrba
sizes once more: the importance of develop
line the ethical side of a sport, concerning
■M I have written from time to time.
and for which the Intercollegiate Athletic
Association of the United States, of which
Captain Palmer K. Pierce is president, . is
working so hard. Like baseball, it is not
football which needs reform so much as the
spirit In which it is played by some teams.
I venture to predict even now that the
football rules, which have 'been revised
with such care io the end that the game
may be freer from injuries, will not ac
complish the purpose if they are observed
In letter but not in spirit.
So long as men are taught to use the
straight arm in warding off tacklers by a
blow with the heel of the hand, so long as
players are coached in certain holds and
twists that can be covered up In close for
mation play, so long as men use their
heads and shoulders with intent to weaken
or disable an opposing player, so long will
all efforts of the rule makers go for noth
ing. Nobody wants football converted into
a parlor game, neither does any fair minded
person want to curb spontaneous cheering
and legitimate coaching on the baseball
diamond, but everybody demands fairness
even jp the prize ring or in a street brawl.
A man can play hard and fight hard with
out taking any undue advantage, and if
this happy condition could be reached the
rules of any sport would take care of
themselves.
That the playing of summer baseball,
which means baseball for money as applied
to college teams, is inimical to amateur
standards, and that the restriction of the
training table is desirable, were sentiments
expressed in a resolution adopted by the
New England Intercollegiate Association in
a conference on athletics at its meeting a
few days ago. This is more or less self
evident, but the question is. Was any prac
tical method devised for putting the resolu
tion into practice?
The college baseball season developed last
week, as such seasons are likely to do," to
the confusion of those who seek to get a
proper ranking for the teams. Cornell, er
ratic again, beat Pennsylvania, winning at
Philadelphia without much trouble, even
against the redoubtable Schultz, Goodwiliie
pitching a fine game. Amherst beat Will
iams on Thursday, McClure outpitching
Templeton. He had to hold Williams hit
less to win, and did so. But he met his
Waterloo on Saturday, when- he tried to
come back against Dartmouth. The- hard
hitting Hanoverians found the Amherst
star easy to hit and garnered eleven hits
and six runs, while Amherst could not score
at all. Harvard- and Princeton, seeking to
play their second game, were kept Idle by
the rain at Cambridge, and will meet to-
day. Princeton is one game to the good, but
Harvard has a good chance to turn the
tables to-day. One of the fine perform
ance? of the week was Lafayette's victory
over Princeton, De Mutt holding the Tiger?
to two hits and shutting them out with
ease. The Navy lost to Georgetown on Sat
urday, being unable to hit, and seems to
have little chance to beat the Army at
West Point at the end of this week.
The uncertainties of racing were illus
trated once more when Waldo, Sweep and
Dalmatian,* which on their form a year ago
stand out as the leading three-year-olds of
the season, were unable through one cause
or another to face the starter in the his
toric Withers on Saturday. The Turk,
which won the coveted impresses
me as a colt of high quality and one which
is sure to make his mark this season if he
trains on. He is so speedy, courageous and
honest that he commands admiration.
The racing at Belmont Park last week
was of a kind to satisfy. Some of the fields
were badly balanced, but- on the whole the
sport was much better than at the spring
meeting a year ago. The outlook this week
is bright, as a number of interesting fixt
ures will be decided.
It took the Detroit champions to put a
stop to -the -long run of the Philadelphia
Athletics. On Thursday morning the White
Kiephants led the race, with fifteen games
won and only five lost. Let it be told that
of the five defeats at that time the Yankees
wore rnipnniiMn lor two.
It would be a boon to many of those who
attend baseball games at American League
Park and the Polo Grounds if some check
were placed on the men who expectorate in
cessantly during the games. Even the signs
forbidding the practice which appear in
cars, railway stations and other public
places are absent in the baseball parks, and
it seems that the officials of the clubs
might do something to check the practice.
I have heard many complaints from women
who like to see the games, and numerous
letters have been received on the subject.
Those who have been predicting that
Johnny Kling, the star catcher of the Chi
cago Cubs, will not come back are begin
ning to change their tune. Perhaps those
who are talking about Jim Jeffries the same
way will get a shock en July 4.

Rochester shut out Jersey City by a.
1 score of 1 to 0 in a fast game ; at Jersey
! City yesterday. Five thousand spectators

a pitcher's battle. Lafitte, a former Skeet- j
er, twirled for the champion Broncos, and
excelled Bartley. a recent acquisition to the

: stick . work that won the game. He laced
out a three-bagger after Blair had planted
a single, and sent Blair in with the- only
run that was made. '

LESSONS OF EARLY RACES
Annapolis Has Proved Good Triaf
Horse for Four-Mile Crews.
HARVARD-CORNELL NEXT
Contest at Cambridge Likely to
Give Good Line on Prospects
for Big Regattas.
The preliminary boat races this year, the
two-mile affairs that annually cause so
much heartburning and confusion, promiso
to give a good deal better lino than usual
on the important regattas at New London
and Poughkeepsie. Tho most important of
all these early races, that between Har
vard and Cornell, is still to be rowed, of
course, and the critics are bound to reserve
opinions until after the meeting of the two
universities that stood at the head of Amer
ican rowinjr last year. The race takes place
this year at Cambridge, us usual, on Me
morial Day.
Tho Navy takes part in no intercollegiate
regatta this year, the hoped for permission
to co to Poughkeepsie not having been ob
tained. But the Annapolis crew, a rattling
good one, gave Harvard, early in the sea
son, a close race. and. becomia* seasoned
in that trial, beat Columbia. The victory
over Columbia, which was won without
much difficulty, was followed upon Satur
day by a gruelling struggle with' Syracuse,
victory resting with the middles by the nar
rowest of margins.
Syracuse was third at Poughkeepsie' last
year, well beaten by Columbia, which crew
gave Cornell a pretty hard fight for first
honors. Columbia and Syracuse both have
good crews this year, excellent combina
tions for speed and well fitted to row two
mile races early In the season.
Therefore. If Harvard, rowing on the
Severn, could beat a crew that disposed of
Columbia and Syracuse it is reasonably
safe to assume that the Cambridge eight is
formidable in the extreme. It ought to b€.
as a matter of fact. It ought to be a crew
even better than the superb one that rowed
the heart out of Yale at New London last
year.
But it will not do to assume that Harvard
is going to beat Cornell easily. It would be
unwise to bet on Harvard to beat Cornell
at all to any large amount, and It would
be equally unwise to bet much en CornelL
Courtney had two great crews on the Hud
son last year— his 'varsity and his fresh
man eight. He ought, barring troubles of
the kind that wrecked his crews in 1308,
none of which have developed as yet, to
have a better crew this year. And, with
each crew better than a year ago, the race
on the Charles ought to be well worth
watching. Local conditions favor Har
vard, but Wray has only one object— to
beat Yale— and has stopped developing two
mile crews for races on May 30.
The Harvard crew now is on its way to
the race with Yale, the ultimate test. It i 3
being trained to row four miles. Now, last
year's crew went after the higr race from
the gun, shot into the lead, kept up a
heart-breaking pace for three miles, and
had. to do little more than paddle in the
last mile. -A crew trained to row that way
is better in a two-mile race than one that
is content just to keep on even terms for
the flrst two and a half miles and trust to
a spurt toward the end. Columbia has been
trained in just the opposite way. In the
last three years the Columbia crews at
Poughkeepsie have rowed absolutely to a
time schedule for the first three miles, pay
ing no attention at all to any other boat,
and spurting only in the last mi!e. Each
of those crews in 1007, 190S and 1909 has
been beaten by less than a boat's length by
the crew that had made its bid Just a trifle
earlier and had the power and the stamina
to stand off the rush of a strong crew row
ing from behind.
Thus Harvard, since the advent of the
new system, has been able to do good work
in two-mile races, while Columbia has
failed to make a particularly good showing
before the Poughkeepsio race. Last year.
for instance. Harvard fairly rowed away
from Columbia on the Charles, and was, in
turn, beaten by Cornell. , Then Columbia,
largely despised, turned around and, at
Poughkeepsie. -gave Cornell a remarkably
si'ff fight.
Harvard's race with Cornell ought to
crystallize the situation pretty well. Yale
is an unknown factor, more or less, but
Yale will have to have a much better crew
than last year to have a chance to beat
Harvard. At Poughkeepsie, Pennsylvania
and "Wisconsin have failed to reveal any
indications of their form as yet-

WHO KNOWS SHOWS FORM
,—, —
Wins Spirited Brushes with
Coast Marie on Speedway.
It was Christopher Hackett's winning day
; at Speedway Park yesterday, for his little
black pacer Who Knows, 2:10*4, scored
I heavily when he met James A. Murphy's
mare Coast Marie, 2:ll''^, on the field of
I battle.
After looking over the field. Mr. Hackett
decided that he could take the measure of
Mr. Murphy's little mare. As the two
pacers rounded the turn above the quarter
post they looked to be neck and neck, and
| they ffwunir down the stretch going like
one horse. Who Knows was in the lead by
half a length at the finishing post, and the
I second heat resulted the same way, but
; was won by a closer margin. Another race
which Who Knowa put to his credit was
his brush with Dr. Ferster's chestnut mar©
Lillie Wilkes.
When Mr. Murphy sent Coast Marie to
the stable he brought out his chestnut trot-
I ter Kirn, 2:13%, and sent him to measure
j strides with Fred Gross's bay trotter
I Aristo, 3:08*4. Aristo. however, was not go
ing smoothly, and Kirn had little difficulty
in putting him in the ranks of the defeated.
Kirn was not so fortunate when he tried
conclusions with CJus Osborne's Trixy H..
j for in one of the closest brushes of the day
the mare nosed him out at the half-mile
post.
Thomas B. Leahy's latest acquisition, Prin
cess Direct, did some splendid work on the
road yesterday morning, twice defeating M.
'. Reynolds'* old Speedway favorite. Dr
Threet. Fandango, an old Speedway favor
i ite. had a series of brushes with Ulrich
which resulted in a decided victory for
Fandango.

MORE HILL CLIMB ENTRIES
Long Island Club Plans Three.
Day Tour of Many Miles Over -
Memorial Day.
Entries have continued to pour la irpga
the Amateur Automobile Contest 'Associa
tion for Its hill climb on Anderson Hai, at
"White Plains, on Saturday, May S^Saiu
tho total has reached forty. In the mfdfl»
of the week, when announcement of tbrli
was made, thirty-five was put as the out
side number. The two most Important
the late entries are the 90-horsepow«r Sim
plex of G. B. Lambert and the Prea^«r #
Jonathan Thompson. It is unlikely that
any more entries will be received, oadar
ary conditions, as each car win be gi7en
two attempts at the hill, and thereat*
numerous other events on the prograan*.
A unlaw number will be a motorcycle
race for the patrolmen of IVestchestet j
County, for which G. W. Qulntard. 3d, has
given a gold medal, and the club has pi*,
sented two prizes. Should the ccntest jrcv»
the success it promises, the club may £013
a similar one m the fall in connection
another automobible competition more
erally open to motor cyclists. :;r
The average grade of Anderson's HW is
5.80 ocr cent. and the maximum . HT4 - per
cent. The steepest part being near the top.
the entire hill affords an uncommonly good
test, especially as the road is straight,
thereby reducing the chance of accident.
The stretch lacks a few yards of betas »
mile lons, and runs from a point nearly
opposite the home of Oliver Harriman, en»
of the members of the association, to a spot
a mile and a halt from th* "Welt* Plains
railroad station.
In connection with the world's twsat?
four-hour record of 1,136 miles, held by tae

This is a specially high banked motardronr.
more than two and one-half miles in dr

against time, he having tee entire track to

The Lozier record was made in caoaab'

a one-mile, unbanked, dirt, horse track,
