of tlio past few years to Justus A. B. Cowlos,
who conchod both tho '07 nnd the '08 eights.
Cupt .Mackny thinks thero Is at presont moro
nnd hotter rowing material ready to oomo out
for tho crews on Jan. 4 than at any. tlmo ho
has heard ot at Columbia, llcgardlnc Coach

"Owing to buslnessencagomonts Cowlcs hns
found It impossible to give his timo to coach
ing this year and I'eet has boon soloctod.
Whllo there was n dlfforonco of opinion as to
I ho wisdom ot tho step, now that Foot has
boon chosen wo must all stand bv him and
help him In every way possible. This Is tho
rowing sltuntlon. nnd while wo nro justified In
looking forward to sucooss wo should not allow
ourselves to bocomo boastful or overconlldont.
Success can only bo obtained by tho hardest
kind of work on the part of all."

ball team has mndo a radical change In policy.
This year. In order to get undor way. a team
composed almost entirely of postgraduates
was necessary. Noxt year tho nlno will ho

Dr. J. Cotter as coach and a good cago to prac

lyn oened up matters one minute later by
gottlng tho rush nnd landing the ball in Jorsey
City's cago. Thero was somo fast work until

The main hall and dining room, with tho ad
joining vorandas, will be used In common.
Moats will bo served on the verandas as well as
in the dining room. A cafe' and grill for men
will be located in the basement and adjoining
tho men's locker rooms. The men's wlnr will
have a large lounging room and n billiard
room, whllo thero will be a separate sitting
room in the women's wing. The feature of tho
main hall is a vaulted ceiling running up
Into tho roof, with a gallery at the end for
musicians. Tho partition betwoen the main
hall and tho dining room will be movable, so
that tho two may bo thrown together for as
semblies or dances. Tho clubhouse is on the
brow of the hill, overlooking tho Glen Covo
station, and 000 foot from it. Tho archi
tect Is Woodruff Looming, a member of the
club. Ho and the membors of the Building
Committee have examined the plans of many
clubs nt homo and abroad to obtain as many
points as possible.
Aside from the clubhouse, tho buildings un

cnddlo houses, both to be near tho first tee. but
not near enough to Interfere with the players

Golf will continue to bo tlio gnmo in roputo

The Greens Committee Intends to err rather
on tho sldo of too fow bunkers nt tho start
than too many, until hy actual experi
ence In play it has boon decidod just what tho
siot and character of each, hazard should bo,
when bunkeis will be added from time to tlmo
Certain points are. howovor. determined about
them. The, artificial bunkers will be either
sandpits with no cops or elso with broad nnd
low epps. and all will bo arranged so that they
may be played out of In ono skilful stroke. In
Its declaration of princlplos tho Gieons Com
mittee states thut It will "consider tho matter
of bunkors prayerfullynud in n reverent spirit."
But no rock or pod bunkors will bo permit
ted, nor w 111 there bo n fonco. rock, treo or bush
uii or unjoining inn uiirgroons nor lu the haz
ards. Small stones and eoarso gravol will bo
banished from the sand hunkers. There will be
no such bad devices as walls, vertical banks or
board fences behind putting greons. Tiioro
will not bo an unplnyuble place on tho course,
except tho pond within well-dellned banks
and of course, another ball may bo played
under the usual pennlty for one that is lost In
tho water. A seventy-live yard carry will
safely cover tho pond. Including both banks,
and tho pond may lie evaded, at the oxpensoof
a stroke, by playing around lustend of across It.
Although thero Is good top soil and turf
overywheru. over tho course, tho Greens Com
iiiltteohus been aided In Its work by the fact
that Mind may still bo had at any point by dig
ging down a foot or two. In this way some
natural hazards havo boen utilized In luting
put tho course. Including tho Punch Bowl nnd
the valloy containing the old farm lane. The
lane, with Its sunken, grayish banks, has boon
eleared of nil brush nud stumps nnd is being
broadened out in places and deepened so a-j to
roach the sand, In each instance forming
an ideal bunker. The Punch Bowl Is
nt tho bottom or a deep otal depression
sunk In a phitoau. which surrounds It
on all sides and makes n hole very slml
lar to the famous Punch Bowl hole nt
Prestwick. Tills hole will bo tho seventh
mid is a short ono of 100 yards, which may bo
easily drlt on with an Iron Tlio ontlro dopros
son la be ng surrounded by. Irregular sand
pits, or a ditch, so that unless tho ball Is plaood
by tlio drlvo within a reasonable distance of tho
holo Insldo tlio hollow It will either bo trapped
by the sand pits, or tho approach on the
second stroko will havo to bo made over the
nltsfiom any direction. Thoro Is also a pecul
iar and deep depression, guarding tho np
proach to the sixteontli hole, at the hoad of tho
pond, so that It tiocessltatos u lather long shot.
Somewhat In the nature or a hazard, butonly
for an unusually erratic ball, will bo tho rail

two holes. Tho circuit or tho eourso on tlio

tvlth the traok, woods nnd Holds to tho loft of
the players as thoy face the holes. Tlio coin
mittee'H explanation Is: "The vast majority of
players nto riglithuiided and half u dozen balls

Unless other hazards are provided the

The Next NntlonnI Assembly ot the L. A.
W. Mny Do a Lore Feast.
Hnndloapper McCarthy, who. as an official of
the L. A. W. Baclng Board, often finds occa
sion to note and report delinquencies and
transgrestions on the part ot cyclo racing men.
rocelved yesterday a letter from tho Baclng
Committee of the Associated Cycling Clubs of
New York, asking him to bo on hand from 10
o'clock to 12 on the night of Deo. 31 at the
starting point of the annual midnight race
from New Vork (o Tarrytown. This was oon
slderei hy McCarthy as proof that the race
would be held with all due respect to the L. A.
W. and recognition of Its rulings regarding
amateurs and professionals, and that the riders
who have been puc under ban by the League
will bo barred out of tho contest. In a chat
with a reporter of Tije Sun MoCarthy further
said that he had suggested to Chairman Mott
the aavlsabllttr of the racing men who aro
registered with the L. A. V. being represented
br one or two delegates, whether "outlaws'" or
not, when the racing rules ot tho League are
revised for next year. In his reply Chairman
Mott said very emphatically that he was in fa
vor of not showing the least shade ot comDro
mlslns spirit toward tho men who have re
belled against Loaguo control, but admitted
that tho suggestion wasone that had "set him
thinking."
" A young woman and an elderly man went
Into a store In Warren street yesterday to buy
a wheel. The woman was hardly out of tho
teens" and although the man looked old
enoua-h to bo tier nraudfat her. she called him
pa." They left without making aZpurohnse,
and tho reason for It. as Indicated by their
conversation, illustrated with what tenaoltv
some women have laid hold of the Idea of rid
ing diamond frames. The purchase was evi
dently to bo made as a Christmas gift to tho
girl, but there was an argument from the
start. She wanted a diamond frame nnd man
ifestly had kept the facta secret until arrived
at the store. Pa" was surprised and rebel
lious. He did not ride, nnd all tho arguments
of his daughter could not convince him that
It was all right. The salesman was discreet
and took neither part. The girl flatly refused
to tryon"adroD'frameand her rather just as
tosltlvcly said that ho would not pay for a
"man's wheel" nor let her ride one. Both were
obdurate, and the store lost a sale. They left,
each trying to convince tho other. It was
only an exposition of, an old controversy, and
the two men who were In tn Place nnd over
heard the conversation held different opinions.
It begins to look as if the next National As
sembly of the L. A. V.. which Is to bo held In
Providence In February, may be something In
the nature of a love feast, with no rivalry,
even of a friendly kind, for the ofu.ee of Presi
dent. The signs havo indicated that T. J.
Keenan. Jr.. of Pittsburg would have for an
opponent Conway W. Sams of Baltimore, the
former receiving the support of the Elliott
adherents and the latter that of President I.
B. Potter and his friends. The need for har
monious work in the Interests of the organiza
tion aro such, however, that all the factions
are realizing thnt it will be a wasto of time to
play at politics even for a few weeks. Potter
and Llllott having both declared themselves
to be non-candidates, It Is becoming recog
nized that tho best policy will be to bury the
hatchot and have all the forces working
unitedly to enlarge the Leaguo and strengthen
its influence. It is therefore nulto possible
that thero will be only ono candidate for tho
League Presidency of 1800. It seems to be a
prevailing opinion that If Keenan is lelected
V. W. 31ears will bo Chairman 01 tho Baclng
Board.
Boports from eyele dealers are to the.olTeet
that this vear there was tho usual number of
wheels bought for Christmas presents. Many
anv that the holiday buying was greatly in ex
Jess of last year, tho Increase being In juvenile
machines. Considered altogether the deal
ers ae cheerful and confident. They are soil
ing more wheels than ever, although with
smaller profits, and tho outlock Is that with the
war clouds all dispersed there will be a small
revival of the cycling boom.

Strangely, New York State has not had within

vors ty, has beon obliged to ask the assistance
of the. Massachusetts, Highway Commission

To im Editor of The Scn Sir: In regard
to my six-round bout with Charley MoKoovor
In Philadelphia on last Friday night. I would
like to say that I was In no wlso worsted, and
that I held my own against MoKoovor In a man
ner that was encouraging both to myself and
admirers. Philadelphia is JIoKoovor's homo,
and It Is only natural that his frlonde should
think he got the bottor ot me. To show that he
is not my master I nm ready to mako a. match
with him. this tlmo for n longor distance, at
140 pounds. In doing this I am giving away
fully five pounds, for I usually fight at 135. I

my statement with hard cash. If McKeever
