LONG FIGHT ON COURTS
A. S. Cragin Beats Clark After
Match of Fifty-three Games.
RECORD FOR INDOOR PLAY
Loser Five Times Within Point
of Winning, but Tires at
the End.
Hitting the ball hard for placement and*
passes Arthur <£. Cragin won his place in
the semi-final round of the lawn tennis
singles, yesterday, on the indoor courts of
th« «r. Regiment armory. 66th street
and Park avenue. He defeated Morris S. '■
Clark, of the Bronxville Athletic Associa
tion. 6-3. 4—6. 15—
The fifty-three games "were of the most
rruelllng description. In the deciding set
Clark v.as five times and Cragin eight
times within a stroke of victory. Upon
these occasions the rallies surpassed any
thing- In the line of indoor lawn tennis that
has been played in this city. They were
fast and sharply played. The speed and
power that the men put into the earn* were
tremendous find led to their last set being
a record for indoor championship play.
Xever before has there been an IS— set.
The best previous record for a set in tour
nament indoor^ was 14—12, -which has twice
been scored during- the Indoor national
championship.
There was a fair gathering of the lawn
tennis followers about the board courts
durins the morning, despite the fact that
the licht was about as bad 88 it could be
for indoor play. Several other matches
-Rerp; on court and off before Clark and
Arthur <>a£rin began their contest. During
the first part of the final set Clark was the
aggressor. He <-arri«d off his service and
under-spinning twist with good effect. Then
he turned his racket to a point winning
cross drive whenever hr was pressed tor
.-in ace. It was so good that Clark led at
6—4 on grames »nd 40-30, which was the
first time he was within a stroke of vic
tory. Crag'-n changed his pace and adroitly
placed to deep court so that he averted
ibe danger and brought the set to games
all.
Clark had the advantage game for a time,
j.t:o was within a point of winning before
•the games touched at :l— all. It wa^ on the
Ulan game that the tide began to
turn toward Cragin. Forcing his service
■shots through at a terrific pace and quickly
Sitting un to the net for a. slashinj; re
turn, be managed to take tike leading posi
tion at 12—11 on games for the first time
in the match.
From that on to the end both used all
the *kill at their command. The rapidity
aC action was such that they were almost
sit the fading point from exhaustion and
Jiad to resort to some stimulation to keep
them going. They were dripping with per
spiration, while the- spectators stood or sat
•.bo-it bundled in coats and shivering.
Finally, at I*— Clark began to waver.
3Ji« backhand shots lacked sting. Fur
thermore, he could not place with any de
sriy«: of certainty. Crasin led him at 17—
on games, and then -went in for his own
service. Twice Clark was successful in
crossing, so that be evened at 30 — on
: -obits against Cragin's drives that cut the
via*; lines. Then the end came, j Cragin
made a pretty shot for placement, and fol
lowed it with a deep shot that Clark
could not get fairly, despite a fine attempt.
Altogether, the match consumed two and
■•m-!.alf hours of continuous play.
In the upper half of the championship
Finples King Smith also came out to the
<■■ r'i-tinal, defeating George A. Yon dcr
Uuhn. 4— 6—l. 6—2. It required the first
'"X for Smith to get the range of the court.
Once lie did so. his driving and volley shots
?asily surpassed Yon der MuhlL
Smith also won in the Class A handicap
singles, as he defeated Harry A. Parker.
He had a mark of minus lii to Parker's
jiJup l.'i. the score being 6—2, C — L The real
match in Class A. however, was that in
which Walter Merrill Hall, at minus SO,
holder of the regimental title, defeated Val
entine Treat, plus half 13, at € — 6—2. The
champion was at his best on his forehand
drives and his mldcourt game. Whenever
Treat gave him half a chance he used vol
ley strokes with unerring accuracy. Treat
tri«*d to check this play by lobbing. The
ball fell short, however, so that Hall was
Tibl*' to score in straight sets. The summary
follows:
Championship singles (second round) — King

bird grunr.ers yesterday for the holiday
shoot of the Crescent Athletic Club at Bay
Ridere. and despite the rather adverse con
ditions of lig-ht, owing to the overcast sky.
many full scores were made in the nine
matches decided. There was a slight flurry
of snow late in the afternoon, but not
enough to disconcert the men at the trap.s.
Interest centred In the match for the
Christmas cvp — a handicap contest at fifty
targets, each man shootintj two ptringrs of
twenty-five. Some Idea of the close work

appears that seven men out of the thir
teen entered broke all their clay birds in
the second string. J. F. James, with a
handicap of two, proved the winner, his
two strings of twenty-three and twenty
five, with the handicap added, showing s
total of 50. H. W. Woodcock and C. 11.
Pulls were the runners up, each returning
totals cf 49.
Four men tied in the shoot for the stake
troph3-— R. E. Fox, jr., J. F. James, A. K.
Hendnckson and H. W. Woodcock. Each
shot a full score, and in the shoot-off Fox
won with 24 to his credit. Fox also won
two twenty-five-target trophies, shooting
against ten in one and eight in the other.
j D. T. I^eahy. F. S. Hyatt and F. B. Ste
[ phenson each won a trophy, and In another
match Stephonshon and Hyatt, having tied
' ] with 23, dividi'd the prize, instead of shoot

; RACING NEEDS MOJ*E PROFIT
i At Least Kentucky Tracks Ask
More from Mutuel Machines.
Louisville. Dec. 26.— An Important session
of the Kentucky State Racing Commission
will be hHd at I^exlngton on "Wednesday,
at which time the application of the La
tonia and Lexington tracks for an Increase
of their percentage on the pari-mutuel ma
chines and auction pools will he considered.
The two tracks ask that the percentage
deducted by the track from th«» money
handled by the association for the public
be Increased from 5 to 7 per cent.
The IJoulsville Racing Association thus
far has not indicated that It will join in the
request. I-atonia and Lexington have been
ordered to bring their books before the
commissioners »o show cause why the in
creaae should !>*• granted.
The commissioners probably will insist
upon the running of more long races at
future Kentucky meets. It is expected that
they will compel an increase of stakes from

from IVJO to not less than JSGQ.

CORBETT A DEAD SHOT
Drops "Bird" After "Bird" at
the New York A. C. Traps.
FIRST IN TWO FIXTURES
■ Wins Leg on December Cup and
Defends His Holding of
Tournament Prize.
| G. J. Corbett did the best work at the
I Travers Island traps of the New York
' Athletic Club yesterday. Not only did the
youthful gunner win a leg on the December
| cup, but he also successfully defended the
| tournament prize. It was the first time
since this trophy has been offered that a
gunner has defended it successfully.
For a holiday shoot there was an unusual
ly large number at trap shooters present
at Travers Island. The day was not par
ticularly good for the sport, but most of
the events ended with full scores and in
more than one it was necessary to have a
shoot-off before the winner could be found.
This was the case in competition for the
December cup. taken by Mr. Corbett. In
the original shoot for this prize six gun- j
ners returned full scores. Only Mr. Cor- j
bett, F. H. Schauffler and Dr. Culver were j
allowed in the shoot-off, however, as the
others had not made their totals from
, scratch.
A shoot-off also was needed to find the
winner of the Holiday cup. In the original
shoot G. Lembeek and E. F. Pell both had
full scores. The former gunner took the
shoot-off by a single "bird."
P. R. Robinson, was high gun in the.
weekly shoot for the club .special prize and
F. H. Schauffler scored a leg on the Haslin
trophy. The only other event decided was
a shoot at ten paJrs of doubles. It was
taken by E. F. Pell with .the unusually
high score of sixteen targets.

TIMELY BITS OF SPORT
Bench Batter for the Pitcher
Once More Brought Up.
A WAY TO IMPROVE HITTING
Few Twirlers Will Take Chances,
Says Elmer Bates, When
at the Bat.
Among ! the various suggestions which
have been made to improve hatting In base
ball, the proposition to have , a bench bats
man hit for the pitcher, has been brought
forward again by timer Bates, who writes
for "The Cleveland Leader." ■ He says:
"There never was, is not now. and never
will be one bona fide legitimate* argument
against the bench batsman;- there are a
dozen sound arguments In its favor. .V\i4
"Now, it. it- well known that there are a
good many pitchers who freely admit that
they do not try for long hits, as they do
not wish to tire themselves out by running
around the bases. The advent of the bench
batsman would put a quick stop to this
kind of performance.
"Few twirlers can hit the ball with any
j effect even if they are fo disposed. Few
more porry spectacles are offered than that
of a pitcher at hat with the base? full, all
the 'fans' clamoring for a hit. and pome
gTeat big healthy 'extra man' sitting idly
on the bench.
"Almost every baseball t»am. bip and
little, carries a lot of extra men nowaday?.
Many of them never get a crack at the ball
except once in a long while in the ninth
Inning of a game, when they are sent up to
bat for fteinebody or other in the hope that
they will produce the needed base hit.
"With all these extra men on the bench
why should the pitcher bat at all? If base
n its are what the people want, why not
provide them in the easiest possible way.
by the adoption of this simple plan, that
involves no revolution in the frame, such as
the 'three-ball' or 'four-strike 1 scheme
would necessarily bring about?
"Another convincing argument in favor
of the bench batsman rule is that Its adop
tion would provide, places for men not able
to go the pace on the. bases or in the field,
but still able to bit the ball. There are
many such players in the land, to whom
the rule would be a veritable boon.
"The club owners and rule makers are
struggling with a whole lot of visionary
schemes that. If adopted, are likely to pro
long the game, increase the number of
bases on balls, give the batter back his
chance to 'foul off' fair balls and bring
about other undesirable results. The bench
batsman and the modified fonil strike rule
would be sure to increase the hitting an
liven up the game."
The painless operation performed by the
majority of the owners of the American
League In separating the St. Ixmis Browns
from their owner, Robert E. Hedges, has
brought to mind a similar operation which
was attempted on Andrew Freedman when
he owned the Giants some years ago. It
seems that Freedmen was the one dis
cordant element in the National League,
and plans were formed to pry him looso
from the Giants. "Uncle Al" Spauldins
was the vessel chosen to do the dynamit
ing. Accordingly the latter announced to
the press one night that at 10 o'clock the
next morning ho would be able to say that
Andy Freedman had retired from the Na
tional Ix-ague. About 9:30 o'clock on the
morning of the fatal day the lobby of the
Broadway Hotel, where the owners were
stopping, was thrown into an uproar by
the appearance of Freedman, flanked by a
retinue of legal luminaries and Tammany
politicians.
"Show him to me! Let me see him!
Where is the man who is going to take my
club from me? Show him to me!" yelled
Freed man.
Spaulding had discreetly retired, and the
other owners hastened to assure Andy that
no one had fell designs upon his beloved
Giants.
When the season of 1911 opens it is likely
that Billy Sullivan, of Chicago, -will be the
only catcher of the American League who
has been in harness In the circuit since 1902.
At the opening of last season only three
catchers were among the crop of 1902. Ther
were Billy Sullivan, of Chicago: Harry
Bemis, of the Naps, and Lou Criger. of
New York. Sullivan had played continu
ously with the White Sox, as Bemis had
with Cleveland, but Criger had shifted
from Boston to St. Louis to the Yankees.
Bemis has already been released to Co
lumbus, while the bell is about to ring for
Criger.
President John T. Taylor intends to do his
best by the Red Sox when he takes them
on thfir long journey across the continent
for the extensive schedule of pr«;llminary
games which has been arranged.
The party is expected to number nearly
one hundred, the squad being supplemented
by a number of Huston's most rabid "fan?/'
and .some baseball writers. The Twentieth
Century Limited will be good enough as far
as Chicago, where the Red Sox special will
be made up. The team will travel in lux
urious private cars for the rest of their
journey, which will cover thousands of
miles before it. arrives back in Boston.
Owen Moran. of Ensland. announced in
Pittsburg yesterday that he had received
by telegraph an offer of $15,000 from Hugh
McJntosh, the Australian fight promoter,
for a tight between him and Ad Wolgast,
the lightweight champion, ho London at a

his acceptance to the proposal.
Wolgasfs attitude is not Imowa here, but
he has promised to me^t Moran under con

PLANS ROAD TO COAST
A. L. Westgard Interests Motor
ists in National Highway.
STATISTICS OF HIS TRIP
He Makes Analysis of and Re
! port on the Various Sections
- • : of the Long Route.
Most interesting statistics as to the feasi
bility of automobile touring from the At
lantic 'to the Pacific coast) have resulted
from Th» trip - just completed by A. L.
Westgard, of the Tonrine Club of Amer
! ica, in his Premier car. In. the interest of
motorists In general and of the United
States government the pathfindlng party
kept an accurate record of experiences en
route, altitudes', temperatures, mileage,,
cost and accommodations.
In a table just issued a new epoch in
automobile pleasure touring is predicted
because of the interest v-hich has arisen
concerning the construction of a. national
highway from New York to San Francisco,
founded upon the movements started by
Mr. Westgard Vrhße crossing the continent.
The extremes of altitude were encoun
tered in the 10,400 feet above sea level at
Mogollon Pass, in New Mexico, and the
194 feet below sea level at the Salton Sea.
in California; the highest temperature was
IW> degrees, on November " v in the des
ert at Mecca. Ca!., and the lowest was
24 degrees, on November IS. in the moun
tains near Fort Apache, Ariz. The total
mileage was 4,703.5. and the elapsed time
was exactly eight weeks. The aver-;
age ♦mileage for forty-five running days
was 104.4; the highest price of gasolene
was 50 cents a gallon, at the Colorado River
on the Desert, / and the lowest was 15 cents
a gallon.
The longest day's run. 172.7 miles, was
made on October 2<\ from Columbus, Ohio,
to Indianapolis, and the shortest was on
November 9. 24.2 miles, approaching Raton.
N. M. Seven nights were spent in camping
with the equipment, which was carried
upon the Premier car. On one stretch of
one hundred miles, the car travelled only
eight on its high gear, owing to the severe
conditions of the roads, but no repairs of
any nature were made upon the car, and
only two tlr^s were changed before ap
proaching Ix>s Angeles. ' oth lasting until
the deserts of Arizona were reached.
From every point of view the journey is
one to attract the pleasure seeking motor
ist, for good roads are afforded nearly all
the way, good hotel accommodations are
to be had along nearly the entire length,
while the variety and grandeur of the scen
ery lining the course are most remarkable.
It is probable that a trunk highway from
coast to coast will be a reality Jn the near
future, because of the run of the Premier
car with its party of officials, driven by
Ray McNamara.
Most of the Eastern highways traversed
are of hard construction, and little could be
urged In the way of improvement between
New York and Chicago aside from some tf/m
short stretches. From Chicago across Illi
nois the roads are not systematically main
tained; from Davenport to Omaha is the
350-mile river-to-river highway; .from
Omaha to Kansas City is similar to the
Illinois strip, but Governor-elect Dahlman
of - Nebraska has promised improvements.
From Kansas City to Santa Fe is the
famous new Santa Fe trail, and the entire
distance will soon be a splendid route. Over
the _ Raton Pass, in New Mexico, is a con
vict-built road which Is almost a boulevard;
from Raton to Las Vegas is bad, but from
Las Vegas to Santa Fe is a scenic highway
which is superb. To Albuquerque is a good
government road, and on La Bajacla Moun
tain 13 a strip where the road winds and
turns completely around twenty times or
more in making the steep descent.
From Albuquerque to the coast practi
cally all of the hardships were encountered,
especially in crossing the White Mountains
and upon the lava on the Mogollon Plateau.
The road through the desert to the wept of
Phoenix was found less appalling than is
usually pictured, as is true also of the route
frcm Phoenix to San Bernardino. The roads
along the coast are excellent-
"This is .the season of the year when the
automobiles that are standing any length of
time in the open air have blankets put over
the hoods in order to keep the cold winds
out. When It g«>ts very cold it Is hard to
keep the water system in proper circulation
if too much cold nir Is allowed to blow di
rectly upon the engines, without the use of
alcohol or some non-freezing mixture." gaid
O. A. Ma thews, president of the Jackson
Automobile Company, of Jackaon, Mich.
"Therefore the radiator and the hood should
be kept covered and the machine kept com
fortable."
Records of speedway racing in this coun
try for 1910, compiled by C. ii. Sinsabaugn
in "Motor Age,'' conclusively reveal the
splendid record mado by the Kiat car.
Fiato started In forty-three different races
run on the Los Angeles, Atlanta and In
dianapolis specially built racetracks. Prac
tically half of these races— twenty-one, to
be exact— resulted in victories for the Ital
ian machine. Of the other races, in ten the
Fiat was second, in live it was third and in
seven it was unplaced.
J. R. Whlteside, seventy-six years old, of
Batavla, N. V.. has been tor many years in
the service of Uncle Sam. as a mail carrier.
Mr. Whlteslde's years do not show in his
actions and he attends to his business af
fairs with an alertness that is sometimes
hard to find in men half his age. Two years
ago Mr. Whitesfde bouprht a Ford roadster,
with which to cover his long mail routes,
and it has been in constant sen-ice.
Through all kinds of roads and weather ha*
the car daily travelled. Recently Mr. White
side left Batavia for Wakeman. Neb., where
he expects to reside in the future. The
long trip was made in the Ford car, th*
gentleman driving it from Now York to
Nebraska alone without any trouble.

CROWD SEES NOVEL RACE
Morse Beats Mule, Mule Beats
Man and Man Beats Auto.
Jacksonville, Fla,, Dec. 26. — A horse beat
a mule, a mule beat a man and a man beat
an. automobile in an amusing contest called
a novelty handicap at Moncrief Park to
day. This, combined with six good races
and a perfect day, attracted the biggest
crowd ever seen at the track.
The novelty race proved entertaining:,
even if one-sided. Marie Hyde, a thorough
bred, with Jimmy Butwell up, ran away
from her field to win. galloping, by eight
lengths from the mule, which ran four and
a half furlongs to six for the horse.
The track was heavy, which proved a
distinct handicap to the man and the auto
mobile. The man. running 550 yards, fin
ished third, som? distance behind the mule,
while the automobile, which had to travel
one mile and a furlong, was a bad last.
I The automobile had a flying start of one-
I sixteenth of a mile, but the handicap was
too much under the conditions. The horse
was a hot favorite in the betting, at 2 to
5, while the mule was quoted at 4 to 1.
The sport from end to end was lively and
interesting. The summaries follow:
