Lot of Baseball Player Not
Always a Happy One.

It is the unhappy lot of a professional
ta«eball player to endure in silence and
•offer in patience in the face of the. most
uncalled for abuse which is heaped upon
"him at times by The rabid "fans" in the
grandstand. His feelings, no matter how
aroused, must be restrained; his temper, no
matter what the. cause, must be curbed In
the interests of the good name of ba-«t?
hall. There «re limits, however, which
rv?n such a quiet, reserved and uniformly
gentlemanly fellow as Arthur Devlin, third
baseman of the. New York Giants, could not
reach in th- way of restraining his feelings,
and unfortunately he took the law Into his
ewn hands in the game in Brooklyn on
Thursday an i violated one of the most
stringent rules of organized baseball in
striking a. spectator. Under the circum
stances. President Lynch of the National
League had no recourse in suspending the
playr. but it is hoped that justice will be
Tempered with, mercy in this particular
case, as the majorty of those who were .it
the game are one in th© opinion that
provocation was irreat.
It strikes me that the whole unfortunate
"a ■*■ could have been avoided if The spe
cial officer* employed by the Brooklyn club
had been alive to their duties in either
quieting or ejecting a man ho so fax forgot
himself as to abuse another, who cVuld not
defend himself. Devlin made a mistake,
a grievous mistake, in lowering himself and
Jeopardizing the interests of his club by
taking upon himself the punishment of the
offender, but in this case there axe few
with any spark of fairness who do not
ie*»l that som» excuses can be made and
who do not sympathize with the player.
rVvlin is genuinely sorry for his hasty ac
tion, and * nile punishment is deserved, no
doubt, it is hoped that he alone will not
be the «.un*er«r. and that the man who was
the cause of all the trouble will be denied
admittance in the future to any park in
either the National or the American League.
His hoped, further, that club owners will
be more careful in the future to prevent
those who let their feelings get th© better
of their judgment from abusing the players
rule a pane is in progress.
The Yankees redeemed themselves in part
for those four crushing defeats in two daye
last week by turning on the Athletics and
petting back two games, and the series,
while disastrous enough, did not turn out
to badly after all. As in the case of the
Giants when they were fighting with the
« übe for the lead, the Yankees appeared 10

It may se said that the line was not a good
one. as was conclusively proved In the two

than th«» visitors. No doubt the series of
fne rames in Philadelphia, which begins on

It Is ousse for satisfaction that the fail
arm of th«» Brighton Beach Racing Aissocia
t»on to conduct its meeting of fourteen
days did not bring about a break in the
circuit. As a matter of fact, the transfer
of dates and stakes to the Empire City
track, near Ycnkers. was in the interests
<-,' those- most concerned, as the course at
Brighton B^-ich was not in condition for
racing and the expense of putting up the
fences arid converting the track from the
motordrome, with banked turns of cement.
Into a proper ore for the horses would
have been so large that the chances of
showing a profit would have been reduced
to a minimum. James Butler, president of
the Empire City Racing Association, has
proved himself such a thorough sportsman
and such a good friend of the turf that fol
lowers of the sport are sure to turn out
in goodly numbers to lend their full sup
port to th" meeting near Yonkers. even
thouph the transportation facilities are not
of* the best.

Columbia need not expect to win a 'var

I ferent spirit is shown on Jlorningside

I America, lias been turning out crews In

finally, he should have *»t bis disposal ih ft

Probably the handicap of the outside course
would have been too much for Columbia to

Rowing, despite the fine work of Columbia

I^ast year, as a four-year-old, he had

Long Strides Being- Taken in
Arousing New Interest.
The recent report of the hunts committee
of the National Steeplechase and Hunt As
sociation indicates clearly the strides that
have been taken in arousing fresh Interest
in the amateur side Of racing. The re
port in part, as published in "The Racing-
Calendar." follows:
The hunts committee desires to make the
following report of the progress made In
the work assigned to it— that is, the su
pervision of amateur racing and a general
effort to create closer and more friendly re
lations among those interested in the sport
from a purely sentimental point of view.
From all parts of the country under its
Jurisdiction have come a most pleasing In
terest and support, the result of which has
been a very material improvement in the
class of the racing that has been furnished
and a marked disposition to adhere to reg
ulations. Meets have been held in this
i-tat<-, in New Jersey. In Pennsylvania, in
Maryland. In New England and in Virginia,
and In each instance results in every way
excelled the records of previous years.
New friends in generous numbers have
been made and the interest of old ones re
vived to a degree that seems to warrant
prediction of a very bright future for the
work under way. At all points the enforce
ment of your rules and regulations has
b*en approved of, not alone by those actual
ly participating, but by the public as well.
This has been proved by the attendance at
all paints, both In numbers and quality,
more persons and of a representative class
attending, followed by requests for a re
newal of tin- entertainment In the fall.
Many new names have been a«id'-d to the
list of owners, and a desire for better ma
terial has developed among those that for
merly raced on a small scale.
At th*-s<- meetings, without exception, the
purses and the value of the plate has in
creased, and promises are that there will
be a still further effort to enhance rewards,
for at no point has it been indicated that
there was a desire to make commercial
ventures of the meetings held.
The list of recognized hunts is greater
than ever before; in fact, in every depart
ment where registration Is required, there
i-has been an improvement, as will he seen

Haverford College Team Invades
Great Britain.
The game of cricket was instituted at
Haverford College in the early 50*8 at the
instigation of an English gardener who
had charge of the institution's grounds.
For many years the teams put out had only
mediocre ability. Interest in the. game In
creased until a professional coach was se
cured in ISSS. and then it was so keenly
manifested that the first cricket team

stitution was sen; abroad under the leader

cricketers ihat America has produed.

In ITKf*. and still another one was sent over
in 1904. This was the last otic until the
team which is in England at the present
time sailed.
The three former teams sent by Haver
ford made Rood records, more games hav

Hsti teams on their home grounds.
Interpst in the game had bo decreased at
Haver ford two years ago that a trip was
jiot even considered, l^ast year the team
was sent to Canada for a trial trip, and
t!i*» result was so satisfactory that the
English trip was immediately planned. As
soon as many of the Bnglish schools heard
that another invasion -was being contem

for this season with a batting average of

There are ten men on the team who have

that th«» Quaker institution has turned out
for several year?. He put fourteen men out
at the stump this spring in the six con
tests in which he took part. Roberts makes
a good substitute tor this place.
While the batting of the team is fair, it
is in the bowling and fielding that it is
particularly strong. Rltts and Baily have
splendid arms for boundary throws. Harts
horn« has an especially happy faculty of
holding hot ones, and David Thomas.
Seckel. Roberts, Fairness and Downing are
reasonably sure of accepting every Chance.
Every man on the team plays on, his toes
in the field, and this as much as their good
clean handling will help to keep down the
runs of the English schoolboys.

effort, was 1 minute 5 4-5 seconds, held by
Harry Hillman. the former New York

Beckman pressed Jack "Bller slightly in
the early part of the competition.* but the
latter gained a big lead by winning the.
100-yard dash and th« high hurdles and
taking second In the high jump. He also
defeated- his rival in the running broad
jump. Beckman fell down in his favorite
events, the throwing of the 56- pound -weight
ana the running broad jump.
The men were considerably fatigued as
they faced the. starter in the one-mile, ran.
which was the last of the ten events on the
programme. The men wore able only to
trot around the track. * Otto"- Stepat.- Jr., of
the New AVest Side Athletic Club, won the
contest in the time of 5 minutes 24 3-5 sec
onds. Kller finished fifth, while Beckman
was in fourth place.

event, displaying the remarkable form
which has won for him world -wide- fame.
At the outset Robbing led the way for
three-quarters of a. lap, when Sheppard
went into the van Rounding the turn
Sheppard sped along the track, winning by
a large margin from Schaaf, while Robbins
quit when passed by Sheppard. He was

Pennsylvania's Showing, Rather
than Cornell's Victory, Cause.
Chances Seem to Favor Crimson,
with Crew of Veterans Against
Untried Blue Eight.
Tt was suggested in these columns some
days ago that no one need be surprised to
see Cornell sweep the Hudson again this
year, and probably few persons were sur
prised when the Cornell 'varsity beat Penn
sylvania in the gathering darkness on Sat
urday. In fact, the. achievement of Penn
sylvania was decidedly the more surprising
of the two- No one supposed that Ellis
Ward had put so good a crew upon the
water, although, as the race drew near,
it had been generally admitted that th»
Quakers were likely to be among the first
Elis Ward did have a crew— as a matter
of fact, a crew that was almost good enough
to win. But there was a little luck and a
whole lot of good management to boot in
Pennsylvania's race. Ward, studying the
conditions, laid out the whole four miles
for his coxswain before the race began,
and that astute youth, following orders
implicitly, seemed to find every kit of
smooth water for the whole journey.
Columbia before- the race was said to
have a good crew for rowing in rough
water, and the contest, as a matter of
fact, did not disprove that theory at all.
But oroper allowance must b<- made for
tho fact that Columbia got all the rough
water that Jim Rire had been looking for,
while Pennsylvania and Cornell rowed in
comparatively smooth water most of tne
time. . Columbia rowed superbly in the
rough going toward the middle of the
river, but the handicap was too much
to overcome, and the Blue and White oars
men, though they made a game fight, never
had a chance.
Cornel! looked for smooth water after
the start, but did not do so as asslduously
as Pennsylvania. Cornell had a crew of
veterans, men who had already tasted vic
tory, and an older, better muscled lot
than Pennsylvania sent to the race. There
fore Cornell was able to plough along
through the choppy water and still at the
end to have the extra pound or two of
strength to stave off Pennsylvania's final
There is not very much that can be done
in the way of deducing from what hap
pened on the Hudson on Saturday what.
is going to happen on the Thames on
Thursday. Cornell gave Harvard a good
deal of a. trouncing, but it did not take
Saturday's race to show that Cornell had
a good crew.
The affair between Harvard and Tale is
no easy one to figure on. Harvard was
beaten at two miles by Cornell last year.
but took a crew to New Ijondon that
would have given the young men from
Cornell all they wanted in a four-mile
contest. Harvard probably never had a
better crew than the one that so decisively
beat Yale last year, and there is no par
ticular reason why the Crimson should
not have just as good a "varsity eight this
Harvard's 'var«dtv eight, beat Yal* by
I five lengths of open water last year. Har-
I yard's freshman eight beat Tale's young
1 sters by fourteen lengths of open water.
Harvard rows on Thursday -with four -of the
men who sat In the 'varsity shell last year.
R. W. Cutler is again stroke, and Waid. At
No. 7, is this year's captain. At No. 6. In
plac» of the redoubtable Paul Tnthinjrton.
lis Strong, a sophomore, who sat in. the
splendid freshman eight last year in the
par"" seat. B. C. Bacon is at No. 5. he and
L». "Withington having changed places since
last year. "Wellington being No. 4. In placa
of Faulkner and Tjimt, at Nos, 3 and 2, are
Metcalf, No. 7 in the 1912 boat last year,
and Newton, who stroked that crew. At
bow, in place of Elliott Cutler, last year's
captain, is Whitney, who held th« bow seat
in last year's winning: four.
That makes a. pretty strong combination.
Every man in the shell has rowed a win
ning race against Tale, and the sophomores
are good oarsmen, as is Whitney, who
might well have- been in last year's eight.
It has been a smoother crew since the de
feat, by Cornell, working prettily in its
time trials, and impressing all beholders ;
Now- for Talr. Kennedy has on this
year's crew Wallis. stroke a year ago: Wo
dell. No. 3 last year, but now stroking the
port side of the eight at No. 7. and no
other members of that beaten crew. Wal
l's is a good oarsman, who sets a fine, even
pace, and can shoot his stroke up on oc
casion, but he was mightily distressed at
the end of the struggle last year. That
does not mean that he would be unable to
acquit himself on Thursday, however.
The new men in th© boat are mostly
rangy, big fellows, giving a lot of weight
to the waist of the shell. Wallis, ins
stroke, is the lightest man In the boat,
weighing only 154 pounds.
At No. 6, In place of Howe, last year's
captain, is Buckingham, of the badly
beaten freshman eight of 1909. Van Stn
deren. at No. r>. has had a fair amount of
rowing experience, and is a big fellow, who
tried hard to make a nam« for himself at
football. Campbell, at No. 4. is a new man,
with a sweep, comparatively speaking, but
is the heaviest man in the boat, weighing
190 -pounds. I>. M. Baker, at No. 3. was No.
5 of th© freshman eight last year and 'its
captain. He caught a wonderful crab in
the first mile of that farcical race, but is
really a. good oarsman and a powerful one.
Colburn, at No. 2. and Frost, at bow, come
from last year's four.
The- make-up of the crews, therefore, is
not such as to inspire much confidence In
Yale men. on the face of the returns. But
Yale, none the less, has a pretty good
crew, and, while the chances seem de
cidedly to favor Harvard, the Blue may
prove a surprise. If Harvard does win it
will be the first tim© in the history of
Harvard- Yale rowing that the Crimson has
won three 'varsity races in succession. Har
vard won races in pairs i n 18Sl'-'S3 and in
1908-'O9. but that is all. It must be said,
however, that it looks a good deal as if a
new nrecedetit would be established on
Harvard and Yale Pass Quiet
