Oscar Hgg after twice having partners quit on lilm, and forcing him to remate, himself succumbed to thn strain early yesterday and had to drop out, Kgg. however, did not quit until after a splendid display of stamina and endur ance. Several tlmo.i he was forced to rldo for hours without relief. He lasted much longer than roost of the experts expected him to. Kgg's withdrawal came at a tlmo when Plercey had quit the rac and left Grenda niateless. Oscar's partner, Tcte Drobach, remated with Grenda, the new combination receiving the usual two laps penalty. Previous to tho rematlng Grenda had lost a lap because Plercey failed to relieve him arter a auccesslon of sprints.

While on way to his homo in Newark yesterday afternoon Bobby Walthour, the Dixie Filer and the oldest of all of the active blcyclo riilors, fell on the slippery pavement and broke his left leg In two places. An ambulance was summoned ttnd he was taken to his home. Last night It was said that Wal thour was resting easily, but that his riding days wero over. The accident rings down the curtain on the career of ono of America's greatest cyclists. Walthour mot with a serious acol dent while racing abroad last summer. He fractured his skull and for several days lay at the point of death In a Paris hospital. Before starting in the Garden race last Sunday Bobby confided to his friends that he had not entirely re covered from the effects of his Paris In Jury and that he did not think he could stick out the grind. After Sutter, his teammate, Had been lapped last Monday wamiour wttnurew rrom tne race, say Ing It was practically useless for him to wait for a. partner. WORST CONDITIONS EVER By fhkuxrioic o. mer. Probably the worst weather conditions In which a game of American football ever wai attempted did not prevent the, Mlneola Aviation Training Camp eleven from defeating the young soldiers from Fort Slocum on the St. Paul' School gridiron at Garden City yesterday after noon. -The blrdmen triumphed In the snowstorm by a score of IS to 0. Tiie game cave the Aviators the cnam- plonihlp In the New Tork Athletic Club's Metropolitan District Army and Nary Posts 'Leatrje. Yesterday's contest was a olay-off of the 0 t6 0 tie at Travers Island last Sunday. Appropriate medals win be awarded by the New York Ath letic Club to the members ot the winning team. Only active duty in the trenches could have been more of an ordeal than the fifty minute contest waged by these young defenders of the republic Had It not been for the spirit of the affair It would have been a football farce, but that spirit which transcended the game on tie field made It an unforgettable arfair to those who suffered through It And the game was American to the core. There were a dozen reasons why the battle could have been called off, but It was not fitting that American soldiers should surrender to tho elements. Xrrrr Snrh a Settlngr. Football has been played in seas of mud, lq snow and slush, but yesterday s setting toDDed them all. Tom Tnorp, fnmur rvilumhla star and for years an official, who rcfereed the game, is willing to testlfv it was the limit. Al me era of the melee Tom was one mass of snow snd Ice, his red face beaming through. giving him the appearance or a uiuikch. Tha around was covered with fine snow, removing all football landmarks, while a young hurricane blew In from the ocean, driving s shower of stinging nnnr tfO nri !ct In itS WSkS. On tOP of that the temperature waa well below freeslng, and when the snow turned to rain lain In the afternoon It froze anu Incrustcd everything with ice. TV. nt m vnrrta was rceica on i" semi-darkness, with practically no let nr.. Tine tn a Her cs of mtenaps, wnicn delayed tho Fort Siocum clan three hours, the game which w,as to start at I nVlncV was not besun until 4 :02. At that ttmn it already was getting dark. but the athletes were there for a game ni wnnM have It no matter wnat nap. nnrri. Toward the end of the fourth quarter the Jerseyed figures were like so many dark snaaows in ine gioom. Could Not Cross Sonnd. The adventures encountered by the Fort Slocum team In reaching Garden riiv would fill n book In Itself. The men started by boat at 10 o'clock tn the morning. Intending to cross the Sound at Whltnston. However, they ran into the teeth of the gale and had to put back to the New Tork shore, but finally succeeded In reaching Fort Tot ten. From Fort Tottcn they telephoned for automobiles to take them to Garden Cltv. but the automobiles got lost In the storm nf could not find the fort By tho time they finally got the Fort Slocum crew over it was well toward 4 o'clock. Mlneola was expected to be handl- canned. as the conditions gave a team possessing brawn snd weight a big ad vantage. In Justice to Fort Slocum It must be said that they did not have either of their regular halfbacks In tfi"e game and the team was filled out with Y. M. C. A. men stationed at Slocum, The Aviators, however, fully deserved their victory. With a gale raging over head, with a field as slippery as a ball room under foot and with fingers stark from cold, luck was bound to be a big factor. Yet Mlneola made the very ele ments work In their favor. When they had the wind behind their backs they used It to their greatest advantage, Several times when Elocum got the ball Into Mlneola territory Watkins would nunt practically the length of the field, thn ball being put hack In play on their opponents 20 yard line. Watkins Star of flattie. Watkins would kick over the Slocum back's head, and the wind would do the rest In the first quarter thn soldiers had the wind with them, but did not aeen to realize what an ally It was. To kick against the hurricane was like throwing a stone into Niagara Falls. Slocum once tried a forward pass against the raging blizzard, which took full charge of the pigskin and whirled it across the side linos. Little Watkins, former Colgato star, was the brilliant luminary of the queer contest. Despite tho fact that his op' nonents towered all around him. Wat, kins carried the ball time arter time, gliding and sliding through openings and slipping from beneath a pile of les coated athletes after he apparently had been nailed to the ground. He was Instrumental In nrorlng both of Mlneola's touchdowns, the blrdmen scoring one each tn tho second and third periods. It waa one ot those long punts by Watkins that started Mlneola toward Its first score, From his own 15 yard line Watkins punted over Smith's head where the gale took it up and like a scared rabb t the" ball bounded and re bounded down the length of the field. never pausing to stop when It passed under the goal posts. Lotvery night on Jon, After Slocum failed to gain a 1ncum nunt was blocked, but a soldier fell on it They tried another punt, but It was In the teeth of the gale and carried only ten feet. Watkins skirted right end for a fifteen yard gain and placed the ball on Blooum's 1 yard line. Here Slo cum held twice, but on a third assault Watkins went over. After breaking through Slocum s linn the ball slipped from his numb fingers, but Lowery fell on It for a Mlneola touchdown. Wat kins kicked the goal. In the third quarter, after an ex change of kicks, a fumble by Slocum gave the aviators the ball on the sol dier IB yard line, Watkins lost ten yards an an attempted end run, but the next play, a fongrd pass, Watkins to Moss, with the wind aiding them, en abled the aviators to chalk up six mors points.

Time of qusrtara 10 aaa s nuamsab CONFER NEXT THURSDAY Chicaoo, Dec. . After a long dis tance telephone conference with 'August Herrmann, chairman of the National Baseball Commission, President Johnson of the American League said to-day that the Joint meeting of the National and American leagues, scheduled to be held here next Thursday, would be held as previously arranged. Herrmann told tne American League executive tnat nve of the eight club owners In the National League were In favor of holding the meeting on the date selected. Herrmann Issued the following state ment to Ban Johnson : 'Recently all tho club owners of the National League and some of the American League deemed It advisable to hold a Joint conference between the two major leagues, to take up, matters of mutual Interest, having In mind the existing conditions In baseball. ' "With that end in view. I went to Chicago and after a conference with Johnson It was agreed that suoh a meet ing should bo held on December 13 or possibly December 14. I went there In my capacity as chairman of tne ruauonai Commission. I felt that this date waa the most opportune time for such ' a meeting because tt followed immeaiaieiy after both leagues had been In annual session and had an opportunity to trans act their regular routine business. "The matters of Importance to do oib runmd at thn conference of course would not be acted upon by either league until the conference was held. I aura Knew that If such a conference was not held now It could not be held In the near fu ture. I ahull attend the meeting of tne r,a- tlonal League next week and will leave for Chicago In time to bo there on Thurs day or at least Friday. I believe five of the other National League owners will do likewise. I know that at least five of them favor tho time set for this meeting. If. however, the National League oe- cldes otherwise that will be a matter for them." Ban Johnson alio notified the dun owners of his league that the schedule for next season would consist 01 jim games Instead of the shorter card of 140 which he favored. He sata tno ae- clslon to adopt the long schedule was made necessary because tho New York National, wlio control tne l'oio urounon, which tha New York Americans use Jointly, favor 154 games. "As for the short playing scneauie. that Is no longer an issue." said John son. "I have told our club owners that the National league holds the whip hand we will havo to give In. I 'think they will make a mistake in forcing the 154 games on the fans, but on account of the Polo Ground situation we are helpless." TENER IS CONFUSED. Does .Vol Know Whether Confer ence 1 On or Off. President Tcncr of thn National League seems as much confused over the meeting as any one. Whether tho rneotlnir is on or off thn Governor can not tell. "I might say It wss off," said Tener, "only to find It Is on. It appears to be a situation which changes more frequently than tho weather." If the meeting Is held In CWcago it will make thn holding of the an nual meeting In this cily nothing more than a formality. T.'ner has point?! out tlmo after time that It will bo linpos slblo for tho league to hold Its annual meeting next Tuesday nnd get through In lime to bo in Chicago lor a nulling with the American I-usuo next Tues day. And Tener dos not Intend to have a farce made out of tho nnnual meet Ing lor the sakn of a Joint meeting which would ho nothtrg more than a fori ! discussion. At least one Judges that Is the attlttude Tener lias taken on tlio subjoct. While Tener refused to iTltlcise Herr mann, It .s mi secret that ho is not entirely tlawd with the Cincinnati magnate's recent artlvltles. Herrmann apparently Is pursuing a course of his own without consulting Tener, and in a good many things seems to have usurped Teners authority. From a Na tional Leagus angle It appears that tho directors will vote utter they get hero t.ext Tuesday whether or not to at tend the Chicago meeting. WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIPS.

This was forecast at the annual meeting of the United States Na tional Lawn Tennis Association yester day. The committee voted unanimously to restore all championships and all other pre-war conditions governing the sport, its action meets with the ap proval of President WIlBon and Secretary of War Baker, and Its recommendations will-undoubtedly be ratified at thn an nual convention of tho association, which will be held, in February. That the war should speed up rather than retard clean snort was the opinion of all the members, who declared that the military authorities at Washington were In favor of the continuation of all clean, wholesome activities that wilt Im prove the physical condition of the men and women of the country and will tend to keep the moral as well as the mental standard up to a high plane. Julian S. Myrlck of the West Side Tennis Club presented the recommenda tions for the restoration of the cham pionships In the following resolution: Adopt neaolntlon. "Whereas ths executive committee of the United States National Lawn Tennis Association points with special pride to ths fact that such association has ma terially assisted In the war work, not only having sent Into service the first ten of our ranking players but also thousands or less conspicuous tennis ability; and 'vhereas In placing Its organization at the disposal of the Government and In raising funds for the purchase of am bulance sections; by successfully hold ing a series of patriotic tournaments throughout the country during the last summer, the position oT tho association cannot be misunderstood; and Whereas the best available informa tion leads us to believe that thn Presi dent of the United States an1 the Sec retary of War favor the continuation of such clean, wholesome activities as will Improve the physical condition of both men and women of the country arid will tend to keep the moral an well as montal standard up to a high plane; Therefore, be U resolved. First, that all championships be restored, players ranked and tournaments sanctioned by the United Slates Nntlonat Lawn Ten nis Association for the season of 1818 be conducted as prior to .the war: second. that the net profits of imeh tournament shall be given to the War Department commission on Training Camp Activi ties, or to such organization ns may In the Judgment of the Secretary of War provide the best nthletlo facilities for men In tho military service of the United States. Approved by Jlnrmnnd Foadlok. P.efore ho presented It to the meet members of tho commlttco Mr. Myrlck submitted it to the War Department snd It ramn back with the following laudatory comment byRaymond R. Fos dtck, chairman of tho Cunipi Recrea tion Committee: "The value of participation in whole some athletics as a factor In promot ing physical fitness and mental alertness cannot he overestimated.

Until reoently it had been Impossible to get a practical plan which would ensure that the machines so named and the men In the sections would reach the field service together.
