It Is expected that tho question ot the ad visability ot the L. A W. remaining In control of tbo racing Interest will bo discussed nt length nt the annual nicotine; of tho League next month. Many members feel thnt tho Lcnguo has received undoslrablo notoriety by reason ot Its Identification with tho rocent six-day contest In tho Madison Squaro Garden, and n proposition that It abandon tho control of racing Is anticipated, Whilo tho ofllcers of tho organization do not express themselves as op posed to tho sport, they frankly admit that It Is tholr belief thnt tho best Interests ot tho Loaguo will bo served by cutting looso from racing. An ofllcer ot tho Stnto division ventured tho opinion vestonlay that ha wished tho Century Rood Club of America was strong enough to assume tho control of trnek aa well ns road racing. Ho na) that tho club hnsdecldod to admit professional riders to membership, n movement tho L. A. V. onlr contemplates, so that Iho Cen tury Club will really bo In a bettor position to dlctato to both classes. If tbo League should sorlously consider tbo question of abandoning the control ot track racing ln favor of tho Century Road Club, It Is felt that the latter would gladly tako tho burden oft tho shoulders of tho League. A prominent member of tho Connecticut division, who hns been iden tified with tho management of some of tho largest raco meets In this country, says: "Iho management of Importnnt mcots has continued to pass from club organisations Into the bands of Individuals or associations, pro moting tho events for purely money-making purposes. This changed condition has unquca tlonahl) had a good deal to do with the diminishing of tho old amateur spirit, although It has been tho means ot furnishing better sport to tho public nnd hotter opportuni ties to tho racing men for exhibiting their strength than wero possiblo under the old method of club promotion.

IXTJSRItATIOXAL ATHLSTtCS, FreBMad Toewameata Bttwsan lk; Plehett rbamslens erthe Werld, Tho active policy outlined by tho A. A. V. at the opening ot ltt present fiscal rear seems likely to lead to somo exceptional sport In tho coming soason. Members ot the newReglstra- 1 tlon Committee are vying with each othorln I formulating schemes for tho advancement of tho sport, and tbo latest Idea Is to bring about n sorlcs of International matches. Australian alhlotcs have furnished the cue by organizing a team to visit the British Islands noxt yoar nnd moot tho chosen nthlotes ot England, Scot land, nnd Ireland at tholr respective champion ship tourneys. W. B. Curtis, one of the dole gates at largo to tho A. A. U., thinks tho tlmo is rlpo for America to assort herself. Ho says: "This will bo a grand opportunity for Ameri can athletes. A team selected from the cbntn f Ions of America could be sent over just after ho Intercollegiate mcotlng ln Mar, and would be ln time to meet the roprescntiitlvos of Qrent Britain, South Africa, nnd Australasia in sev eral of thoso International meetings. It Is to bo hoped that tho ofllclnls of tho Amateur Ath lotlc Union nnd tho Intorcolleilato Athletln As sociation will realiro tho luiportaneo of theso meetings nnd organlrn to inis to participate." Iho Intercolleglato A. A. Is said to bo willing to Join in any inovuiuont to this effoct. In fact Frauk Kills of Pennsylvania Is quoted ns saying that nt tho meeting of tho association next February n motion will bo Introduced with a view to pitting our Intercollegiate champions of next Stay ngilnst the stars of Oxford and Cam bridge. With the thin end ot the werigo thus Insertod It would bo nn easy inntter to broadon tho enterprise so ns to tako in tbofullchamplon ship sorlcs suggested by " Fnthor Bill." The other A. A. U. officials, howovor, seem to take a different vlow ot the matter, their Idoa being to Invite Iho Australasians to comneto In tho united States, probably at New orfc, Chi cago, and Snn Francisco, on either their outward or homeward trip. The Australasian team has boon picked from the champions of New South Wales. Now Zealand, Victoria, nnd Queensland, nnd should pro 10 n big attraction whorcver It appears. In inso tho men from tho Southern Cross cann t see thctr wav to como horo aa pro posed the Indications nro that tho A. A.

It is more and more difficult to conduct any small business at a prolit, because of competition with large aggregations of capi tal. The solution of the difficulty would seem to be to consolidate individual resources, placing each moderate investor in the position of the most favored capitalist. R The plan of THE JOHN PETTIT REALTY COMPANY secures-this result without specu lative risks. The consolidated capital is employed in the build ing and operation of New York City business property (store ana office buildings), under man- j agement of undoubted ability and stability. Investors have daily opportunity to observe and in spect their own properties, which are paying 6 per cent, at the start, and are very sure to in- crease in value.
