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. Tbo marked Increase
ln tho number of events and tho grcnter
tlnnnclnl Interest involved hern created
a situation which can sranelv longer
bo controlled by any L. A. W. Racing
Hoard. Tho necessities of the sport bore, ln our
Judgmont, Increased to a point demanding that
Iho present board bo superseded by a board of
control, oach member ot which should be a com
petent nnd responsible man oniplojed nt nroaB
onablo salary. The condition could be further
simplified by conferring largo powers upon tho
various division racing boards."

nntlclpato that nny independent faction will bo

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. U. will
join forces with tho Intercolleglato Association
and tako a genuine championship tonin across
to meet all comers on the British circuit already

Principal Absolutely Secured.
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
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.
