Philadelphia. June 11.— Miss Fanny C.
Osgood. of the Country Club of Brook
line, cam* Into her own by •winning the
championship of the Women's Raatara
Golf Association for the third time over
the links of the Huntingdon Valley Coun
try Club to-day. The leader* score of
357 for seventy-two holes led Mrs. K. C.
Wheeler, her closest rival, by the comfort
able margin of nine strokes.
In th<-- tournament ■ year ajro at Bal
tusrol. Mrs. Wheeler, then Mlaa Mary B.
Adams, won the title, but Miss Osgrood -was
not a competitor on that occasion. The
last named has th» reputation of being the
steadiest medal player among the -women
in this country and she proved this ae»ln
to-day by getting round in 93, good work
considering that rain fell practically all
the time. Mrs. Wheeler, •*• was third
when the last eiphteen-hcle round was
started, displaced Miss Harriet Curtis, of
111 art Mm who took 13 for her final circuit.
Mrs. It. IT. Halloa of Merlon, with a 34.
also passed Miss Curtis.
Although realizing that her chances of
finishing near the top were, hopeless. Miss
Julia R. Mix. of Knplewood. the former
metropolitan champion, stuck bravely to
her guns and splashed around for the
fourth and last time with a score of IS.
which gave her a total of 5^ for the
seventy-two holes. This places Miss Mix la
reventh position, three strokes ahead of
Mrs. Caleb F. Fox. the Huntingdon Valley
matron, who recently won the champion
ship title of the Women's Golf Association
of Philadelphia,
Additional withdrawals io-day were Miss
Florence McNeely.' of Philadelphia: Mrs.
W. Fellowes Morgan, of Baltnsrol. and
Miss E. W. Allen, of Brookline. so that out
of the original thirty-odd starter* only a
dozen stuck It out to* he end.
Miss G. Davis, of Philadelphia, won the
handicap with a total of 364. Una was
greater than that of Miss Ogood, but the
last named was ineligible for the prise, as

Ellis Ward Brings a Good Look
ing Crew to the Hudson.
Poughkeepsie, N. V.. June 11.— Ellis Ward,
with his entire complement of Pennsyl
vania oarsmen, arrived at Highland, across
the river, early this afternoon, making the
third s-quad that has started work in ear
nest for the regatta two week? hence. "Ward
did not give the Quakers much time to get
settled, for. although there was a nasty
mist hanging over the river, the veteran
coach turned out all his crews and put
them through a limbering-up practice late
in the day.
The Philadelphia!!? have a likely looking
'varsity crew this season, and an appar
ently well balanced eight, thai rows along
with srood blade work and enough power to
thoot the boat through the water at good
speed. The 'varsity combination is a little
heavier than the Red and Blue eight of
last year and is much further advanced in
the rowing game.
Ward, adhering to his usual custom of
taciturnity, had nothing at all to say re
garding his crews, although he seems to be
in better spirits than In several year?. It is
confidently expected by the men them
selves, however, that the- "varsity eight is
good enough this year to finish up with the
first two or three in the race. The Quaker
freshmen, however, are not nearly so good
looking a crew as the one. that finished
third last July.
Charley Courtney, the dean of the river,
v. l!! g»t in with the Cornell squad on an
early train to-morrow morning, and wilT
let the men have a full day's rest before
giving them any harder work than unload
ing th© boats and cleaning up the boat
house. Fr*d Webster, one of the town
worthies, who has stuck close, to the Cor
nell quarters every year since the first re
gatta, hack in l £3.">, is dubious about going
back to the Cornelliana this year, for he
ha* been working- on the Columbia barge,
and finds the Morningside Heights squad
ever?- bit as congenial as the Ithacans.
loosing Fred to Columbia may be a bad
omen for the Ithacans: at leapt, that's
what the old river men here say.
Both Rice and Ten Eyck drove their men
hard in the morning practice, e«ndlna? their
'varsity combinations over the full course
from Krom Elbow to the finish mark. A
driving rain was sweeping over the river
when the Columbia eight paddled out froM
quarters and went up to the start, while
the freshmen took up their position at the
two-mile mark. The 'varsity cam* tearing
down the course at top speed, and, al
though the first-year men had a length the
better of H at the beginning of the third
mile the older crew had little difficulty In
pulling out and winning: by two lengths.
RJce aaeeaa to be pretty well pleased with
the way his 'varsity has been going slnci»
he shook It up last week. He ha* rerigged
the new shell, which was to have been used
last season, and the 'varsity lias been using
it right along. It is a much larger boat
than any other on the river, and looks in
if it could stand up In almost any kind of
water, as It Is both broad and high.
Tho Columbians had not passed under th<*
bridge when the Syracuse cr»»W3 started at
the top of the course and came down In a
good stiff time row. Ten Eyck would not
gay just how fast it was, but the crew was
travelling along at good speed, rowing a
stroke that never dropped below thirty an.l
•was up to around thirty-throe for the great
er part of the Journey.
In the two days they have bean here the
Syracuse crews have covered nearly thirty
nilles, which is something strange for the
upstate oaram'-n, who in former years have
been content with going less than twenty
miles in the first two days' practice. The
Columbia crews, however, think nothing of
taking a twelve or fifteen mile row, and
In thtilr i"" days on the river havo rowed
160 miles, which is very nearly a rt-cor3.
Rice believes in giving iiis men plenty of
rowing, but not enough to hurt them.
Ned Ten Eyrie ia expected here to-morrow
afternoon with the Wisconsin crows. Two
members of the faculty are travelling «ast
with the Badgers and are giving the oara
men their examinations on the train. This
i" the first time that mich a scheme has
" tried but it will probably In perm*

Unbeaten Cooperstown Four to Serve as Trial
Horse for the International Team.
It begins to look as if the member? of
the Meadow Brook team who won the in
ternational polo cup in Kngland last year
will have to work hard to hold their places
on the team which will defend the trophy
from tlie British challengers this season.
The players on the Cooperstown team,
which is unbeaten in nine matches this
season, are showing enough skill to mark
them dangerous. In fact, the four has been
named a<« a trial horse, fo to speak, for
the Meadow Brook toam. and practice
games will be played twW a week until the
Internationa] match, some time in August.
The Cooperstown four is the talk of the
polo world because of their clever com
bination play tn rpcent tournaments and
because of th-ir defeat of the Meadow
Brook team in thA final match for the-
Great Neck o*halleng» '"up. The latter four
was made up of two International players
-Harry Payne Whitney and J. M. Water
bury, jr.— together with ,1. S and If. C.
Phipps. The success of Cooperstown if the
more remarkable as the team is composed
entirely of young play-rs.

fifth time.
Alec Smith, who recently went round the
Cricket Oub'a course in record flgurea, is
at the. top of his game, and the Wykagyl

Army and Navy Foilsmen May
Not Compete for Title.
Navy officerp interested in fencing ara
advocating the withdrawal of the army
and navy teams from the Intercollegiate
Fencing Association They, believ* that
this action v/ould be for the best interest
of the sport, as the easy victories of the
West Point and Annapolis teams for the
last fly« or six years have served to kill the
interest that colleges mifht othsruifi* take
In fencing.
Midshipman Everson. » member of the
1907 and IPOS navy fencing teams, who is
now stationed on the United 6tates battle
bhip Nebraska, in dlscussins: the question
said: "1 think it would l>e best for both
the army and navy teams to withdraw
from the intercollegiate championship
matches. Then one of the college teams
would be sure to win, and there would soon
develop a greater interest in fencing in the
universities and collegia The compara
tively easy victories of the service teams
have hurt the sport. It would be better to
have only dual matches .between college
teams and the service teams.
"Possibly even greater Interest would be
stimulated if the winner of the intercoi
legtete contests shf-ulil meet each year the
winner of the championships between the
army and navy teams for the champion
ship of the rnlted States.
"A imggestlon has bee.n made that there
be international fencing contests between
teams representing government academies
which havo in competition won the military
championships of their respective countries.
That in to say. If the navy team next >ear
defeats the army, then it would represent
this country in such a competition. At
present thero is little prospect of any such
International competition, but if It ever
should b© brought about !t would be a
great thing for fencing."

in correspondence with all the organiza
tions hereabouts taking interest in aquatics,
and it is likely that the metropolitan cham
pionships will be apportioned among th
various clubs, while whichever of the na
, tional events can be allotted to the East
win he spoken for by the New York Ath
letic C*lub. One in particular which the
; club hopes and expects to receive sanction
for is the high and fancy diving, granted
last year to the West. The committee's
anxiety to obtain this content is due to the
presence in New York of Harold Smyrk.
the Australian champion, who took the title
in England in 1908. Sinyrk was unable to
go to Chicago for tbe national meet, last
winter, and a great exhibition is expected
when hs and. Gaidalk meet.
Among the clubs which will probably ftsk
for dates next summer are the New York
Athletic Club, which will have the first
open-to-ail carnival on July I and two
others later; th» Bath Beach and New
York Swimming: clubs; half a dozen yacht-
Ing organizations, including the Jamaica
Bay. Larehmont. Atlantic and Brooklyn
Yacht clubs; Steeplechase Park and the
Chateau dcs Beaux Art?, at Huntington.
Long distance races are likely to be in
favor, and there Is talk of reviving the
Battery-to-Coney-Island thirteen-mile swim
which was a feature of the outdoor season
until it was abandoned last year. The five
mile metropolitan championship will also
have several bidders, and the two-mile
swim from Travers Island to Whortleberry
Island is almost sure to be held again.
Large entry lists are confidently expect
ed in all these meets, and there ■ prom
ise of added Interest in the sport because
of th© assurance that several of th« lead
ing 'varsity cracks will keep in training
after the colleges close and compete la the
Amateur ' Athletic Union events.
Champion Daniels intends to spend the
summer in the mountains, but he- will work
regularly and be on hand for the impor
tant races, whit" "Bud" Goodwin, who has
recently signified his intention el attempt
ing la swim the English Channel in 1911,
will be seen In aH the endurance tests.
Th* expected appearance of Frank Beau
repalre, the Australian all-round cham
pion. Is hardly likely to materialize. Ac
cording to a member of the New York
Athletic Club who has seen the letter writ
ten by Beaurepa Ire's manager— It seems to
he the custom abroad for amateurs as well
as professionals to have financial man
agers—the young Victorian purposes to
visit thin country at the expense of the
club or cluba wishing him as an attraction,
and the sum mentioned as sufficient to
bring both him and his manager aver is
JI.OOO. Apart from the fact that the Ama
teur Athletic Union is not likely to look
with approval on such a saquest. It Is very
doubtful whether any organization will
consider the attraction worth such an
amount of money.

W. 11. V. Hoffman had a. novel experi
ence yesterday in the fonr-tn-hand class.
for he sustained his Bawl defeat. Mr. Hoff
man had his four bays. Red Knight.
I Brighton. Breeze and Marian hi front of;
his coach, and on the box with htm wu
young; William Hoffman, aged eleven
years. Miss Edith Kan* was alone on ths
box of George Grant Mason** coach and
she handled hi* four chestnuts with a.
skill that probably won them the Ma*
ribbon. The horses were In th© ring for
such a locs time that it looked as if ther»
might bo a repetition of the dif3ctjlty In
decision which mad© two blue ribbons nee
' essary In the class for pairs en th© Of"
j ing day. The badsce of honor was finally
fastened on the bridle of the near chest
nut leader, however, and th« suspense was
over, as there were only two contestants ta
this class. , .
Richard DelafleWs entries came well to
the front In the harness" classes yesterday.
The chestnut geldings Rrx. and Ramar"*
won first prize in th* class for pairs 13.3
hands or over. In this class were W. M.
V. Hoffman's showy bay.* Brighton and
Red Knight and Lehman Strauss Wonder
and Wonderful. It looked to the spectators
as if the real contest was between thes*
pairs, and It was therefore something of *.
surprise when the blue rosette was fas
tened on the bridle of th« buxom Ramapo.
Mr. Lehman's geldings wer* placed second
and Mr. Hoffman had to be content Mth.
a yellow. W. B. Dinsmore a Kid and Bust
er Brown were In the class for smaller
horses, their only competitors being: Helm
and Marie, from las stabl* of N. L R.
Edgar. Th» chestnut gelding* threw *a!
lantry to the winds and wrested tbe BaaßwH
from the attractive little mares.
W. M. V. Hoffman's chestnut c»Min<
Teneriffe had things pretty much his oven
way in the roadsters classes and he added
another blue to Mi collection when h*
appeared In the class where the Orans©
County trotters meet. The horses splashed ;
through the mud. doing their best in the'
heavy footing, until their long tails resem
bled bunches of shoe strings and their,
manes were polka-dotted with mud, beyond
recognition. Jack Townsend drove th»
bay mare Red Gift from the Glenmeri
stable. She is a beautiful little creature,
with quality a-plenty, bu? she lacked th»
speed of the Tenertffe gelding and had tot
be content with second honors. Theodora -
riallmailj— and Pierre LorlUard. jr.
showed their pairs, which caused so much
comment in the class, where each received
a blue the day before, in single harness in
this class, and each stable received a rib
| bon. Mr. Fr«»linghuysen got third prize and
i Mr. I^orillard fourth, for Lady Chester, who
is not as attractive alone as she Is to pol*
! with Tuxedo.
I Andrew Morison's chestnut mare Sonia
defeated her erstwhile conqueror, Rosa
lind, from the stable of W. A: McGlbbon.
in the combination class, which was a
popular decision, as Eonia gave a perform
ance which has seldom been equalled m
this class. Rosalind is not quite M good
in harness, ami under saddle it is hard M
choose between th*> two little mare?. e»
this gave Sonla a fair victory. There was
a reversal of form-, however, in the saddl*
class, for Rosalind was placed ahead of
Mr. Morison's mar-, and Mrs. Preston
D:ivie took a yellow with her black mar*
Merely Mar', a new one to th© hors* shoT
In th? local tSm for araaaa horses
Richard DelafleWs chestnut gelding Ener
gy defeated Mi stable companion Round?
lay. which never seems to get any nearer
first than a red rosette. In the local sad
dle classes. Griswold tVaaaawSl ■ U^erov
with Miss Edith Kane up. was a gcv?-l w!n
n*»r. and divided the honor* with Mfsa Cut
ting's gray mare Blue Bell. '
last in the programme was Uts laii?**
tandem driving contest, and this was r*on
by Miss Edith Baa* The obstacles waaa
set at such an agle that it was •«■ ni?h
Impossible to drive between them, and Mi«
Kan", who ha.l considerable trouble .with
her leader, did kno<-k down on- of th-m.
Miss Harriet Alexander completed th*
Journey without a mishap, but her time
was twenty-one seconds slower than Mls»
Kane's, which put her in second position.
