Leading Polo Players Gather at

TOURMAMENTBEGINSTO-DAY
Thirty Matches To Be Decided.
and Ranelagh Team, from
England, Plays.
: t;- Telcprarh to The Tribune.]
Narragansett' Pier, R. I- July 31.— With
the leading polo players of the country as-
Bembled here and the- addition of the En.c
i HsOi team of Banelagh players the annual
championship tournament, which begins to
morrow on the Held of the Point Judith
Country Club, is creating unusual Interest!
All told, thirty matches will be decided In
the tournament. The Engltehmen are en
tered only for the open championship, which
will begin on Tuesday, August l€. On that
day Ranelagh will meet the Rockaway f our
;:i)d New Haven will meet the Point Judith
Perroquets. T; . Rancla^b team is com
posed of F. A. Gill, Riverside Grenfell,
Lord Bocksavage and on« other to be
named. It is thought that the unnamed
player will probably bo H. Rich, of last
: year's British international team, who has
! bten playing here with the Perroquets.
The matches scheduled for to-morrow are
in the series for the Rhode Island cups. In
the first Hryn Jlawr will meet Point Judith
and then the second team of Myopia will
engage the team of the City Troop of Phil
adelphia. The third match scheduled will
bring together the Meadow Brook Free
booters and the Point Judith Perroquets.
Four clubs will be represented in t le
: senior championships, which will begin
next Thursday, when New Haven meets
I Bryn Mawr, and Meadow Brook, her old
I rivals, i.-. Rockaways. The fact that
■ Harry Payne Whitney is loading the
I Meadow Brook four and that their ponies
are in the best of trim makes them favored
in this Serb
In many ways the rivalry between
| Meadow Brook and the Point Judith follow
| ers of the sport Is evident. The plan is
afoot to make the field here the American
i Hurungham so far as polo Is concerned.
The importance of the present champion
ship matches is emphasizing- that point.
A.C a tuning: up for the senior polo cham
pionship ii special match was played to
day between the Perroquets and the Point
Judiths, the former winning by I"-' * to BVi
goals. The sides were switched, but the
Englishmen, 11. Rich and if. Balding, were
stronger than their handicap and easily
hold their own. J. B. Thomas was not up
to his game and allowed Balding to race
through and get the ball. Stoddai I di
rected i :s: s team well and rode hard. F. H..
Prince, sr.. in riding oft* his man, v. as pen
alized for using his elbows in riding. Tliis
penalty led to a heated argument. The
playing was fast and the riding bard.
THE JOY AN EASY WINNER
Light, Fickle Breezes Almost
Mar Bensonhurst Races.
Fickle breezes that kept swinging around
1 the compass all but spoiled the weekly run
!of the Bensonhurst Yacht Club yesterday.
The course chosen by the Gravesend Bay
tars was from off the clubhouse at (Timer
Park to the 'South-west Spit Buoys and
then to the finish lino, inside the Horseshoe
at Sandy Hook. Here the yachtsmen had
dinner on board their respective craft, and
then returned to Graves* ad Bay.
Although ten boats started in the run. the
wind was so lisht that only five were able
to reach the finish line. The winner was
the Joy, the property of T_e Sauvage and
Oer. The Miana, which belongs to W.
J. O'Xeil, was ihe second craft to finish,
but on corrected xiv.,-- the prize was won
by Richard RummeH's Careless.
The yachts started at 10:40 o'clock in
the morning in the lightest of northwest
breezes. Hardly had they rounded Nor
ton's Point befure the wind died away, an.;
there was a ilat aim. After drifting
around for more than an hour, a iight breeze
sprang up from the south that sent the
boats on their way.

TWO WORLD RECORDS GO
Meivin Sheppard Lowers Mark
for Two-thirds of a Mile.
AHEARNE SMASHES ANOTHER
Games at Celtic Park Marked by-
Sterling Performances and
Close Finishes.
Meivin W. Sheppard, the famous middle
distance runner of the Irish-American
Athletic Club, established a new world's
record for two-thirds of a milo at the an
nual games of the Kccentric and Standard
Engineers, at Celtic Park, yesterday. After
l"ins forced to set the pace from the start
he crossed the finishing line with a tre
mendous burst of speed in the time of 2
minutes i'< j.-'> seconds, which broke th>» old
record, formerly held by Kmilio Lunghi,
the Italian, by one-fifth of a second.
I>asi Ahearne broke the world's record
for running-, two hops and a Jump, with
a distance of r,i feet 7\ inches, -which was
mure than an inch better llian tiie old
record established by himself.
The record hung up by Sheppard will. It
seems certain, be recognized by the Ama
t'-ur Athletic Union, as flve watches caught
him at his new time. One official snapped
him at one-fifth better and one one-fifth
slower. There was a stiff wind, but it blew
at sucb an angle that it hindered rather
than helped him.
Sheppard was >n the Inside lane, and im
mediately after tli*- gun bounded into the
lead, opening a g-ap of a few feet. Mc-
Laughlin was .^f-cinid, while the other two
runners were speeding along at tht;ir heels.
Sh< ppard turned the first quarter mile In
55 3-5 seconds, with McLaugblln doggedly
lt>l lowing at his ht'«-ls. Gc-is was lifteen
yards behind Mclaughlin, and after bein,"?
passed hy Brennan, retired from the con
tent. Rounding the turn into the second
lap. Sheppard slackened his speed some
what, turning ihe half-mile stake in 2 min
utes flat. The hard pace soon tired the
Lough lin Lyceum athlete after this, and
he dropped further and further back. Snep-
P'ti'd kept up the pace, breaking the tape
amid a tremi n lous burst of applause from
the eijj'nt thousand spectators, who com
pletely cm led the track. ITad tho race
1 • ■ 11 a handicap one Sliepjiard would hava
run a more impressive race, and might have
( lipped a second or two more off his new
time. He finished In excellent condition,
and remarked thai he was not -ple^s'-d with
his new time i'<>r 'he distance, ;ind that he
would attempt to lower the figure shortly.
David Noble, of the Travers [sland «'lui>.
ran from scratch In the rnii<- handicap. He
timed his spurt badly, finishing third, ten
yards behind Joe Meeks, of the Acorn Ath

LAWN TENNIS STARS ILL
Players May Not Be in Form for
Championship Tourney.
A game leg, a case of typhoid fever,
appendicitis and other ills caused by cli
matic conditions appear to be likely to work
unexpected changes in the deciding of the
thirtieth national lawn tennis champion
ship at Newport this month. Anyway,
something like an overturn is in store for
the ranking list of the season. The injured
leg belongs to William A. learned, the na
tional champion. He pulled a tendon in
his right leg in his semi-final match of the
metropolitan championship in June while
h.« was playing Carieton R. Gardner,
Lamed is still suffering from the. injury,
and if forced to a hard match in the chal
lenge round it is feared that the leg would
prove false and allow another to win the
title.
William J. tMothier. the ex-national cham
pion, is certainly out of the contest for
the national this year because of his re
cent attack of typhoid fever. He is re
covering, however, and this encouraging
news is conveyed from his home in Phila
delphia. Gustave F. Tom-hard, who began
the season so brilliantly, is troubled with
the vexatious vermiform appendix, and it
is possible that he will have to give up
all thought of the national title this sea
sor.
When it ip further considered that Wal
lace F. Johnson, the Pennsylvanian: Na
thaniel W. Nilcs, of Harvard, and Heals C
Wright, the international player, are hardly
of certain form: that Robert I>? Roy and
Raymond D. Little have practically de
rided to remain out of the contest for this
season, and that Frederick V. Alexander
and Karl 11. BehT are decidedly below the
form of several years ago. tho possibility
of th<^ championship falling to a new as
pirant does not seem remote.

ranked as one of the baal and most tntrepM
drivers of racing automobiles In the »-or.:.
Yet his racing career hi said by those who
know him best to be hearing Its end.
A remarkable man Is this Chevrolet, and
his ability seems unlimited. Some would
refer to him as the greatest of living motor
pilots.
During his three years A3 a -*inntne
driver of the Buick racing and stock cari
Chevrolet has proved his fearlessness, me

will )Vn!s career at the wheel when tha
finishing nae of the Vanderbilt is crossed
by his hip white bonneted car.
Chevrolet was born in .Switzerland. His
first job was leading a blind man. Thi*
man was a wine buyer, and young I»ui=»
was assigned to take him to the varies*
wine establishments in Paris and oth^r
cities In France. While -winning a M I
he also acquired a knowledge of raja win*"'
Then are few better judges of Burgundy
than Chevrolet
The man who owned the shop had a on**
and one-quarter horsepower single cylinder
motor tricycle. But the thing would not
work for him. and he finally became dis
gusted and made Louis a present of th-»
machine
This misunderstood machine realty
j started Louis on his career, lie was poor,
i and this motor tricycle was a bit above hit
| financial reach. So he spent hi.-- evenlnzr.*
i studying: the machinery trying to find >> -.-.
\ the cause of the trouble. After much ex
! perimenting he located it. fixed it and rod©
I the machine, something which his employer
thought impossible.
Automobiles attracted him. and be served
for a short term with the Man company
in Paris. The automobile game was boom
ing in this country, and he came here. For
seven and one-half years Chevrolet drov*
automobiles in New York, and during that
time he did not have a single accident.
The automobile racing game became mor*
and more appealing to him. and he secure
a job with an automobile firm. The Bulck
people saw in him an invaluable man. a.-.'
he entered the employ of the Michigan firm
This man knows probably, a, much about,
machinery as any man in the automobile
gamp. When not racing or exhibiting ma
chines be is working in the factory doctor
ing the machinery that drives the automo
bile. He Improves it constantly, rnakinsr
slight changes here and there, increases
th* worth of the autos.
On the track, in actual racing, Chevrolet
often carries a mechanician with him. bur.
when a break really occurs nine times o::
of ten it is the driver and not the mechani

"I guess this is the last year on the track
for Louis," remarked a member of the firm.
"He's too valuable a man to take cliancp"-
on. We can osa him in the factory, and I
guess he will stay there ■■- the ne\t
Vanderbilt Cup race. We are making thre«»
cars for him to run In this event, and bs
expects to win this year. After that h<»
will be turning out automobiles instead or
racing them "
It hi rather remarkable that a grniusjik'*
Chevrolet should be risking his life every
week on the track when be could make **
much money, and possibly more, sitting
quietly at a desk designing and planning.
This condition was suggested to th«» French
driver, and in reply, with his white leet'i
glistening beneath a stubby brown mus
tache, he said •
"I couldn't sit al a. desk Baleas t
had tires and a motor. I am aaad ta s^.r. <
:'ast and seeing the world rssl barlranH *
beneath the wheels of niy car. I f •=■*»!
would be very much like i-aKir._' a v
for I ne\er could stand a Hfc oi :r.a ■■•
now . "
When Chevrolet prepares his car tor a
race it is much like a mother dressing h^r
favorite daughter who is programmed to
deliver an address before the kindergarten
class. Not a bit of the machinery escapes
his touch: he tries out every part of it: ba
tightens a screw here, loosens another
there: he tears out a few old wires and in
sens new ones': then the machine under
goes a thorough examination and general
readjustment. His mechanicians become
mpre helpers; Chevrolet always is tht
master.
All tin's is only part ■■■' the reason wfla»
Chevrolet stays In the racing same rather
than return to a life of quiet work: the
rest of the reason is told readily when the
gun sounds and his steel steed dashes
throuch space in one of his performance*
"Why don't I quit racing;? Why do I
risk roy life when I could make more
money "doing something else in, the a?:to
line? Well, it's hard to say."
It seems that Chevrolet always ha.< re
serve speed, and seldom does another driver
p&ss him when once he gain? the lead. As
he crosses* lbs wire and the checkered .-i-:
waves him the victor, on Chevrolet's fat •
again appears the smYiUc that has won hirr
thousands of follow in the ranks •'
motor enthusiasts throisgh tl:e country. H>»
bring* his car back to the paddock. rfleas>~-<
his clutch and lets the mote hum m<r
niy.
"Heir that! It sounds like musit
doesn't it" It sounds £rwT>.r That is sran<l
opera t<> me. That i- why I do not quit
the game."
