clans strongly urging the policy that
two .tows bo permitted to enter from
ta.-h nation In all the rowing races, the
inn being In mind by the American com
nlttro that ono crow could be cancelled
when tho tlmo expires to send in the
names of tho different crews. In the
n re t was pointed out that college, and
civilian rowing are so wide apart as to
make elimination trials very difficult be
tween both classes, and tho projtlcm
would bo solved If the request was
granted. An Immediate reply was re
, -lested. It was explained by Sir. Rubien
hat the main purpose of the query
Hnged around the fours and pairs. The
i.crtlon of an eight oared crew and the
",.iyge and double scullers will not cause
mueh worn-, as tc personnel of the row-f.,-,
for these events have narrowed down
to a few in each event. The Belgian
rowing events are down for decision on
ugiift 17 to 29 and the entries close
on July 5.
Matthew P. Halpln of the New lork
K "". tho newly appointed manager of
the track and field team, was present at
tho conclave, and when asked If he had
formed any definite plans as to the best
rorslble means of handling his men. said
that It was a trifle early to rush into
print about what he was going to do.
Tie admitted, however, that his routine
iou!d be much the same as tho teams of
ijnfi, '08 and '12. all of which proved to
vo winning combinations, and that he
had not tho slightest doubt but Uncle
Sam would capture the honors onco
Reiaufe of the fact that the swim

neek after tho track competitions. It Is
Hn'o'ii's opinion that a rest of three

UnJther thing thought of for the track

Kme i' was thought that some one might

The selection of ateim or two teams
to oppose the invading forces In tho In

looms up ns ono of the most difficult

be called, will Include, If present plana
are not upset, Harry Vardon, the peer

one time British open champion and rec

from St. Andrew's, still putting with an
old wooden putter which hip father, a
grand golfer, used beroro him; Charles
Mayo, a deliberate but steady player,
and J. G. Sherlock, noted for his putting.
These sevn, we feel confident, could

Just how to niTtteh up the American

has been suggested that the tennis ba

with the Scots In this country teaming

interest of the contest and detracts en

to see a purely homebred team matched

the array of talent which they possess:

If some such array Is selected with

An Assemblage of Stnrs.
A cursory glance at the lists as givsn
altve wculd indicate even to the wan
who runs as he reads that at least a,
doren of the best players In the world
were taking part and that never before
at any match did the list present such
an assemblage of stars. The plan, so
we understand, is to havo the golfers
play in threes, with perhaps Harry Var
don (or the British open champion) if it
should happen to be one of the Invaders
rlf.ylng at the top along with Walter
Hagen for tho Homebred and James
Barnes for the Naturallred stars.
It is stretching the Imagination to no
special lengths to believe that golfers
by the hundreds would drift In from
Columbus. Cleveland. Detroit and Chl

styles and the scoring of three crack

this case would not have a fair show, as

to-day and will refuse to play In any
