When the West Bide Tennis Club an
nlled for the nrlvllege of holding tho
national championship singles and tho
boys' and Junior titular competitions at
Forest Hills the delegates compiled as
a unit. It took less time than
It takes to tell It The despatch with
which the local organisation gained Its
desire created quite a stir among those
who had been looking for a contest
from Boston. Newport, Philadelphia
and way stations. In reality, there
never had been any question about the
West Side club's getting the tournament

position to hold the singles on the plane
established at Forest Hills In recent
A dee and Myrick Elected.
Tho election of officers, which had
been expected to develop the hottest and
bitterest fight In the history of the as
sociation, went through In accordance
with the recommendations of the nom
inating committee. Major George Town

was reelected president Owing to hla

Doable for Longwood.
While the Longwood Cricket Club
voted against the restoration of cham
pionships Richard Bishop, Its represen
tative, asked -for tho national doubles.
The Longwoods got that tournament,
which was Inaugurated on their courts
last aummer. The national champion
;.li!r for women, the national mixed
doubles and a nwly created national
championship singles for girls less than
19 years of age all went to the Philadel
phia Cricket Cub. Tho national clay
court championships for men and women
were awarded to the Western Tennis As
sociation for competition In Chicago at
nome club to be named later. The na
tional Indoor tournaments for men,
women and Juniors as usual went to the
Bcenth Regiment Tennis Club.
Some two months ago the executive
committee, after conference with the
military authorities, voted in favor of
restoring championships. No opposition
developed, and it was taken for granted
that the proposition would be voted
through with no real contest. However,
considerable sentiment against the re
sumption of titular competition devel
oped at the meeting and a proxy vote
had to be called for.
Tho Individual delegates voted for the
restoration by 36 to 24. On a proxy
vote championships won by 155 to 97.
Philadelphia and Boston were against
titles, while the local delegation and the
Western Association lined up for the
resumption of championship play. Lieut
Watson Washburn of Camp Up
ton spoke In favor of titles and was
backed by Ulon Hooker. 8. W. Merrl

RATIFY FED LEAGUE
War Payments to Be Made to
Promoters of Defunct In
The last peace agreement of the Fed
eral League war was drawn up, yester
day at National" League headquarters,
when a committee of major league mag
nates agreed upon the money settle
ments to be paid the former promoters
of the Brooklyn, Newark and Pittsburg
Federal League clubs. The meeting waa
attended by President Tener of the Na
tional League. Secretary Heydler of the
National League. President Hemnstead
of the New York Nationals, President
Johnson of the American League, Presi
dent Navln of the Detroit Americans.
John C. Toole, attorney for Organised
Baseball: William Harrldge, Johnson's
secretary, and Jamea Hlndman, attor
ney for the Federal League clubs.
The major leaguers agreed to pay two
years' rental immediately for the Brook
lyn and Newark Federal League parks.
In addition to paying Ed Gunner, for
trier owner of the Pittsburg Federals, a
sum decided upon at the peace agree
ment. Nothing remains but the signing
of the agreement by the two attorneys.
after which Organized Baseball will pay
over a check of ISO, 000. of which HO. 000
will go to the Ward estate and $30,000
each to Sinclair, formerly of the New
ark club, and G winner of the Plttsfeds.
T Take Over Ball Parks.
With the payment of the check Or
ganised Baseball immediately will take
over the former Brooklyn and Newark
Federal League ball parka A com
mittee consisting of Hempsted, Ebbets
and Baker have been appointed to see
what can be done to make the prop
erties pay some revenue.
During the last two years the two
parks have been a dead loss to the big
leagues. The major leaguers refused to
take them over, the club owners assert
ing that the suit of the Baltimore Fed
erals held up the peace settlement The
former Federal Leigue promoters, on the
other hand, refused to handle them, de
claring the properties had been rented
to the major leagues by reason of the
Baltimore Salt "till Pending.
It was announced yesterdav that the
settlement yesterday had nothing what
ever to do with the Biltlmore Federal
League suit, which Is still pending.
An Interesting feature of the peace
agreement Is that Organized Baseball Is
merely paying rent on the Federal
League properties, which eventually will
return to the Ward estate and Sinclair.
Under the settlement Organized Base
ball pays 120,000 rental per annum for
twenty years to the Ward estate, 110,000
rental per onnum to Sinclair for ten
yearn for his Newark park and IC0.000

Great Outfielder May Come to
New York in Big Four
r FREDERICK G. LIEB.
A big deal by which the Yankees hope
to get one of th. Detroit outfielders,
perhaps the mighty 'Ty Cobb, Is In the
wind. Humors of a big deal to affect
iho Yankees and Detroit club were In
evidence at the American League meet
ing here last Thursday. Huch rumors
look on added strength yesterday when
Millar Hugglns, the new Yankee man
iger, had a lengthy conference with
Frank Navln, the Detroit president.
During the conference Navln repeatedly
appeared agitated over suggestions
which Hugglns made to him.
Hugglna admits he may be able to
swing something big. "I hope to land
two outfielders before we leave South."
he said yesterday, after his talk with
Navln. "One of them Is Clarence Walk
er, for the last two years with Boston.
I think he Is a splendid player. As to
the other man, I can't give his name at
this time. Whenever the news gets
around that you are after a certain
player immediately six other clubs go
"If we nut through anything it will
not be made for a week at least Noth
ing will be done until I return from
Cincinnati, where I will spend a week."
Plpp Mar Go to Tigers.
While Hugglns left here yesterday af
ternoon ostonslbly for the purpose of
paying a visit to the old homestead in
Cincinnati It ,1s not believed that Milter
will put In much time In Redland. Ha Is
on the hunt for big game, and Is en
deavoring to run It down. When Hug
trlnu arrived here a few weeks ago he
announced he would remain here until
the club went South. Since Harry Spar
row went South Hugglns has been In
complete charge of the office, looking
after contracts and other matters. The
majority of his athletes remain unsigned,
so It Is doubtful if Hugglns would have
left at this time unless most pressing
business called him elsewhere.
Wherever Hugglns winds up he will
endeavor to dodge publicity. He pointed
out yesterday that publicity does not
help deals In their embryonic state.
The deal to be made Is likely to af
fect even the BoMon and Philadelphia
clubs before Hugglns Is through. For
one thing, If Hugglns Is able to do
business with Navln It will be neces
sary to obtain Hob'ftsel from Boston and
send either Hoblltsel or Plpp to the
Tigers, Pitchers and money would also
go to Detroit. It Is because of tht"
new angle that the names of the play
ers Involved In the recent Boston-Ath-letlc
trade are being held back.
Waul Make Yaaks Pen nam t Factor
If Hugglns cannot land Cobb he will
endeavor to bring either Veach or Hell
man here, but the man he Is after la
Ccbb. It Is understood that Ruppert
would be willing to pay a' price never
heretofore spent for a ball player to
bring Cobb here and would consider It
a splendid investment Ever since the
Red Sox obtained Strunk. Mclnnls.
Shang and Bush. Ruppert has felt that
something must be done to put the Yan
kees , In the tight during the .coming
It also is said the American League
would be well pleased with a deal which
would bring Cobb to New York. It
would enable other American League
teams to pull as much from their visits
tu the Polo Grounas as do National
League teams ratlin; on the Giants.
Would Navln let Ty go? Perhaps!
I he could get another first clans out
fielder, a first baseman, a catcher, two
first class pitchers and a wad of money.
It would leave him with a strong team,
with as good pennant possibilities us his

HIGH LIGHTS AND SHADOWS
IN ALL SPHERES OF SPORT
PRINCETON'S loss of Dr. Spaeth, the rowing1 coach, and Us resjolve
not to renew tho contracts of Its professional athletic Instructors
may discount many of the benefits of which tha Tigers appeared
to have assured themselves when they made their recent decision to return
to the Intercollegiate sport arena. Tho abandonment of football last autumn
left the Princeton athletic treasury In very poor shape, and the association
lias not the funds to guarantee the salaries of such men as Bpeedy Rush
and Fred Dawson of the football forces, Frank Sullivan of the swimming
and water polo teams and Fred Luehrlng of the basketball team. John
Fltipatrlck, who has been Dr. Spaeth's assistant and now Is left as temporary
rowing coach, has a contract for another year. Keen Fltipatrlck, the
track and field coach, will stay and If necessary his salary will have to be
pain Dy me department of physical education of the university.
Princeton alumni in this city do not like the Idea of letting go of so
many first clasa coaches, who wero acquired only after considerable experi
ence with men who did not fill the bill. Should these men be released
tliey will have no trouble In obtaining other positions immodlately, even
though the wnr has cut down the coaching staffs at other colleges. If
sport Is at all worth while It must be conducted along systematic lines,
undergraduate and voluntary alumni coaching, decidedly haphazard at their
very best, have been tried at Princeton and have proved failures.
Would Hamper Endeavor for Military Effleleacjr.
Disregarding the effect the release of the coaches would have on the
competitive side of sport at Old Nassau, such an act would be injurious to
Princeton's efforts to develop a student body of military efficiency. To per
mit young men to Indulge In sport without expert supervision is well nigh
criminal. Some of them will run riot and overdo it, and a greater number
will run down and underdo It. The coach is n modern necessity perhaps, in
the eyes of the idealist, a' necessary evil, but the fact remains that ho Is
needed. It behooves Princeton's alumni to get busy and help tho athletic
association out of its dilemma. It Is quite certain they will do so.
Dr. Spaeth's going la particularly unfortunate for Princeton at this
time, when It needs his guidance In rehabilitating the sport of rowing, for
which the Tigers have great plans this year. Dr. Spaeth was not a paid
coach, but gave his services gratis. He was a member of the department of
English at the university.
Time for Ue Americas, Learse to Make Itself an Eight Clab CIrealt
Isn't it about time the American League took soma action to make
Itself an eight club circuit? As it stands now the league consists of seven
clubs and the Athletics, and tho outkjok Is that Mack's team this season
will be oven worse than the last word In lneptness which represented Phila
delphia two years ago. A fellow owner of Mack's told us In all seriousness
last Thursday that Connie was not sending out contracts for more than
12,000. What sort of a big leaguer Is going to work under such an arrange
ment? The Philadelphia club excuses its parslmonlouiness vUh the plea
that it Is "strspped" financially. If such is the case tha league had better
chip in and make it possible for the Athletics to dole out their uniforms to
regular ball players. Philadelphia fans will not go to see a lot or sandlotters
play at Shlbe Park, anil the fans of other cities will not pay even the war
tax to watch such a lineup go through the motions of taking a beating.
We heard the other day that It had been arranged for Mack to take
over Gardner, Walker and Cody from the Red Sox. The addition of that
trio would mean a lot to the Athletic, but Mack could not take them and
be consistent In his policy. Gardner carries a $6,000 contract, and his
presence among a lot of $2,000 men or worse, even If the Boston club paid
(3,000 of his annual salary, would cause a lot of trouble. Walker and Cady
would stand In a similar light. Hasn't this Joke gone about far enough?
Helternau Leaves Wanderers and McKennaa Joins the Seven.
Moose Heffernan, the sturdy defence man of the Wanderers hockey
team, will play no more games this season. Heffernan was ordered to Han
Francisco by his publishing firm yesterday and the Wanderers had to rear
range their lineup for the remaining contests In tho National League.
McCarthy Is to go bjck on defence and right wing Is to bo taken care
of by McKennan. a first class player, who made quite a reputation at New
Haven two years ago. Smith la to go back to centre. McCarthy may prove
n better man on defence than he was on attack, and the going of HefTernan
may not prove a big loss. McCarthy has shown a tendency to keep the
rubber when he gets It and this has retarded the development of comblna
Zbjsiko's Fall Was a Flake. Says the Referee.
lit explaining his decision In favor of Cuddock over Zbysiko, I3d Smith,
the referee, says that the Pole's fall was a fluke. Gene Melody, who man
ages Caddock, writes us us follows:
"In the Caddock-Zbyszko match the time limit of two and a half hours
was agreed on when the match was made. A time limit was placed on the
match to do away with stalling and to protect the public against any unsatis
factory termination. A few years ago wi had Stocher and Lewis In a
finish match here and In fully five hours they never went to the mat once.
The match proved to be one of the most unsatisfactory ever staged In this
section of the country. The articles of agreement called for a. finish match,
best two falls In three, positively not to terminate In a draw, acclderit or
ai:y unsatisfactory finish, and with all these restrictions, after five hours of
no wrestling, the match was declared u draw by the referee. I am opposed
to these long drawn out, no decision affairs. If the public doesn't get a run
for Its money In two hours and a half it la time to call a halt. A time limit
assures the public of action and a real contest, and when the wrestlers know
they must either win or lose, either on falls or points, there Is no chance
for any of the old fashioned stuff."

Jjck Curley who, by the way, assured us that he no longer la man

right this minute. Curley once more denied with vehemence that ho had
any financial interest In Dempsey. "I could kick myself all over town,"
he aasured us with more vehemence, "for not having taken a half Interest
lu Dempsey when I had that chance three months ago. That boy can
beat Fulton, Wlllard and the rest. He's a champion right now. I don't
Ixilieve that Fulton could go four rounds with him. Jack is a two handed

his spots as Ketchel used to do." For this encomium Curley surely deserves

Ttex Beach, tha novelist, fell a victim
lo the crafty playing of Oottfrled Plel. Jr..
in the nnal round match of the Class A
handicap squash tennis tourney In the
New York Athletic Club yesterday, The
match went t five games. The scores
were 15 B, 1 11, 615, 1215 and'
Beach had to allow his rival a five ace
Btart In each game, and this handicap
proved too much. Plel played a much
more pussllng game, depending on a
; cross court nitsck to onset the killing
drives of Beach, who smote the ball
hard. Beach's weight also hindered him
conrl'lerably In moving around the court.
He oftrn was caught flatfootril on place
ment shots by hla rival.

Palm Beach, Fla., Feb. IE. Walter
Fairbanks of the Denver Country Club
to-day won the golf championship of
south Florida In one of the hardest
matches of hla long career by defeating
C. C. Helntzman. Hamblln, 1 up In 87
holes. The Denver man did uphill work
all day, although playing his usual, care
rut, machinelike game. While he oc
casionally squared the match, he was
never up until the thirty-second hole,
when his opponent got. Into a bunker.
On the thirty-first he showed an example
of his fine courtesy by allowing Helntz
man to pick up his ball when he drove
behind a pile of railroad ties, though the
Canadian lost the hole, 7 8.
Helntzman won the thlrty-erixth In I,
again squaring the match, and the golfers
halved the next in fours. For the thirty
fifth their drives and approach shots
were almost alike, both well on and
hardly a foot's difference In the distance,
but the Denver player was stymied by a
water hydrant, and he lost B 4. He
approached the fateful thirty-sixth 1
Then Helntzman made a fatal mistake.
Both men had perfect tee shots and
Helntzman approached and was well on,
when It was discovered Hint Helntzman
had approached with Fairbanks' ball.
Helntzman therefore forfeited the hole.
It was some little shock to him when
he learned of his error. Helntxman's
wife and children ran out from the club
house to congratulate him, but drew back
as they saw the players again approach
ing the tee. Both drove to within a rod
of the green, but the Canadian, who first
approached, showed his nervousness
plainly and was way over. His putt was
a good try, but he missed by a foot, and
Fairbanks won the hole and match.

Frank O. Jones of Memphis by 4 and 2.
Mrs. Jones held tha Ilttsburg girl even
untlt the tenth hole and at one time In
the match had a lead of 1 up.
Miss Morrison won the eleventh, when
Mrs. Jones got Into trouble. Coming to
the fourteenth green Mrs. Jones topped
her second shot, which left her a difficult
third to carry the brook. She went over,
but could do no better than a 7 against
a 6 for her rival. Miss Morrison then
won ths short fifteenth, although both
were In trouble from, the tee.
Tho long sixteenth saw the finish.
Mrs. Jones topped her drive and then
put her second In the palmettoes. This
practically gave the Pittsburg girl the
match, as she waa dormie and had only
to fight for a half, but as she found a
trap in her approach and wasted 3 shots
before she got the ball out she won the
hole only by I to 9.

Local Body Drafts Resolution ,
to That Effect ut Execu
At a special meeting of the axecu- ,
tice committee of the Metronolltan Golf
Association at Its office yestcrdny the
committee "took the hull by the Jiorns"
and placed itself on record as favoring ,.
a resumption of the invitation touma-
ment gam. The members declared they
were opposed to championships, but saw , .
no reason why tournaments which havs ',
been staged in past yeats cannot be
staged during the war. The committee
met at the request of many clubs, at
which there were demands for competi
tive play. The executive board drafted "
the following resolution : ,
"It Is the sense of this meeting that
while at the present time the association
looks with disfavor upon tournaments
where prizes of value are given, the see- h
retary will be glad to arrange for dates ,
for Invitation tournaments of two or
three days duration, where the prises ,.
are of nominal value and where the en-
trance fees will be donated to some war
relief fund." J
In other words, the association, which
renounced competitive golf laet year, ' '
again takes It under Its wing and Invites rt
the clubs wishing to hold tournaments to
get In 'touch with the secretary as early
as possible. One of tho objects of the
M. O. A. is to arrange tournament dates
and keep them so far os possible from
conflicting. Communications should be
sent to a. H. Pogson. the secretary, S6
Liberty street, this city. i V
There can be no question but that this
move of the local association coincides
with the wishes of the national body, i c
In fact, Frederick 8. Wheeler, at tht' s
recent V. 6. O. A. meeting In Phlladsl
phla, urged tournaments of short dura- v
tlon. When such time arrives tor .
championships . to be held again ths j.
clubs originally selected Brooklawn for
the amateur. North Shore for the open,,. ,
and Rtwanoy for the Junior will stags
the events. ,
Tho usual handicap list will be com- -
plied and practically a new committee
appointed, as several of those who ,,
served last year arc unavailable. Find
lay S. Douglas again was (elected to act
a captain of the association's Lesley
Cup team. The former tournament com- '1 ,
