WRITES OP ILVNDIOArS Ksw Haven, Conn., March 15. "This season must be considered a success not withstanding the fact that we lost to Pennsylvania and Columbia," says Wal ter Mace, the coach, In a review of the Tale basketball season In the Yala Nacs to-day. "Those defeats were both close games.' he continues, "and neither was won until the last moment of play. The reason we lost was the fact that Alderman had Just been withdrawn because of scho lastic amicumes, which resulted In a hut minute change tn our lineup. "Too much credit cannot be given to the substitutes. On the whole they came through whenever called upon to do so. "The feature of the year, I think, has been the wonderful Improvement of Ha mlll at centre. Tho floor work of Von Slyck was at times as fast and accu rate as any I have ever seen. Horton's comeback after two years In the ser vice was remarkable. lie and Van Slyck played together with line team work. "Capt Stradclla's all around play at guard was good, but It was his splen did leadership that kept the team be hind htm at all times and made our spirit possible. Stradella had a won derful way of helping Alderman and Goodell, the two other guards with ad vice. "The college gave us good support throughout the season. "The outlook for next year Is prom ising. Wo shall nave Van Slyck, Hn mlU, Alderman, F. Goodell, Murphy. Faherty, Cohen and Jameson. I am nlso expecting some good material from this year's freshman class." There was no lntercolteglate basket ball championship this year but mem bers of the league Arranged an Informal schedule, the results of which will not count towards the Intercollegiate cup. The Yale team won seven out of tho nine games played. The teams to which It lost Pennsylvania and Columbia, had both been defeated by Yale at an earlier date.

TRACK AND DIAMOND HUM AT DARTMOUTH Tcsrcan Has OB-rin Uasoball Squad, Including: Many Veterans. IIILLMAN IS BUST. Harry Starts Pointing Ath letes for Big Intercolloffiato Meetings. JIanotih, N. H March IS. Interest In both track and baseball at Dartmouth was given a decided and much needed Impetus by the appointment of Jeff Tesreau, former Giant twlrler, to tho position or coach of the 1919 baseball quad, and by Coach Harry HUlman's first general call for traok and field athletes tn preparation for Indoor and outdoor meets which are on the card for tho green track squad during the re mainder ot the college year. A squad ot thirty-three candidates for the varsity nbio, most ot whom are battery men, already Is at work under the dlrectlorr ot Coach Tesreau, while a dally achedulo or workouts has been drawn up for tho track men, both veterans and novices. The veteran material which Coaoh Tesreau has on hand la of calibre to In dlcato a successful baseball season, since olght "D" men will bo available. They aro Jack Boss, pitcher: Frank Rosa and carr, catchers: Capt Grey, first base; Murphy and Martin, inileldcrs, and Jordan and T. Bellly, outfielders. In ad dltlon Cuddy aiurphy, etar of the First Naval District League last summer, Is a candidate for tho twirling staff. Coach Tesreau naturally Is paying mucli attention to the pitching staff. He has no lack ot candidates for either tho pitching staff or the mask position. Besides Ross, who was an able second to George Harris during the 191S season, and Cuddy Murhy, Tesreau has Dyer, a freshman pitcher of prep school fame, and Beers, mainstay of the second team last spring. Many Catchers. The contest for the position behind tho bat promises, even at tills early stage of tho game, to call forth un usually keen competition. Ross and Carr, both of whom played with Uie varsity last year, are leading the large hold ot candidates, but Crisp, a Need ham boy, who played the position with the second team In 1918. has some chance of placing. Davis Elliot McKay and a freshman, Balmonsen, nro others who aro candidates for catcher. Although Tom Rellly Is tho only var sity outfielder now with tho squad, both Jordan and Grundmen, tho latter a var sity substitute during the last season, are expected to report within a week. Tho outfield also has a dozen or so new men at work. In addition to tho squad which Coach Tesreau will have under his direction between now and spring vacation, which opens March 22. George Harris, flret string pitcher last spring: Chet Gale. second baseman, and Ginger Bruce, who led the team In hatting In 1918. are ex pected back for tho remainder of the yea.

ONE CLASSIC BEMAINS North and South Tournament at Hnohurst Is Biggest Event of Tear. As a rule, no sneolal significance at taches' to the results achieved by ama teur golfers In Bouthern tournaments, for almost Invariably the men who star below the Mason-Dixon Lino fall tn tho important links events In the North. With the professionals, however, It's a different story, as It seems to make little difference whether they aro In the North or south, the recorn led leaders gen erally come through In both cases. It may be that there would be an other tale to telt with the amateturs. If the leaders made annual pilgrimages to tho South each winter and took part In a series of tournaments, aa do the salaried brigade. For Instance, If Charles Evans, Jr., Francis Qulmet, Jer ome Travcrs, Max Marston, Oswald Klrkby, Jesse Guildford, rtobert aardnor, Bobby Jones and a few others played at PInehurst Palm" Beach, Belleatr and other courses each year the chances are that o'no of them almost Invariably would capture tho honors. Tho point Is that In tho "pro" events In tho South thus far, ths same old leaders havo shown the way, a sort of forewarn ing of what will probably happen In the major events In the North. Mike Brady of Oakley led at Augusta, Jim Barnes nt Deland nd Walter Hagen at Palma Cela. One Mora LlnUa Classic Tractlcally only one more open tourna ment of consequence Is scheduled for the South. That Is the North and South championship at Plnenurst, the biggest event of the year. Last season Walter Hagen captured this title, nosing out Jock Hutchinson and Pat Doylo by one stroke. The tournamot.t will be staged March 28 and 29. Roverting to tho amateurs, It may be that some of those who have been flash ing brilliantly during tho last few weeks will bo able to make their prosence felt upon their return. Edward a. Styles, for Instance, has snown ronn over Philadelphia links that any champion might ho proud of. Al though ho has been playing only a few years, much of his golf was with the professionals, and that early training may have been responsible for the ease and confidence with which he makes his shots. Always a long driver. Styles never! nas to worry trom that source, but it Is his exceptional Iron play that en ables him to score so low. That 69 of his at PInehurst recently made even the professionals take notice. Then thero Is John X. Stearns 3d of Nassau. A few ycarB ago tho former Princeton student made a good show ing In a number of Northern tourna ments, though It Is doubtful If he could ever point to anything quite so brilliant as his 70 at PInehurst In January. In that particular round Stcarn3 had 35 each way. Kerr's Play at Bcllrnlr. The friends ot Hamilton 1C Kerr arc still talking of his fine playing at Bolle alr. It Is always gratifying after a long layoff for a man to get back to old time form, and his ability to do so speaks well for the soundness of his gama To defeat De Witt Balch tn the -final of one tournament and only lose nfter an extra hole match to C. G. Waldo, Jr., In another la a record worth having. V.'aldo, by the way. Is a fine Eolfer. He demonstrated that as far back ns 1912 when he defeated Harold Hilton In the first round In the amateur cham pionship tournament at Wheaton. When the women's events get under way In tho North the pace set by the favorites will doubtless be ot a brand difficult for slay at homes to equal. Already Mrs. H. V Hurd of Pitts burgh and Mrs. C. If. Vanderbeck "of Philadelphia, both erstwhile national title holders, have been getting In con dition. The ft. VaicVlne tcurnirhint was won by Sirs. Hurd, who will doubt less bo In the best of form to defend her North ami South title st PInehurst. In that event .however, the former Brit ish champion will meet with strong op position should Mrs. Vanderbeck suc coed In getting on her game. All through the South women nro dis playing good form. Miss BeSsle 1'enn, who did so finely nt Palm Beach, win ning the Florida title, looks llko a com ing champion, while Sirs. Q. F. Fcltner. the South Shore woman, Is playing as well as ever. Others going well Include Miss Elaine Rosenthal of Ravlsloe. Mrs, G. K. Morrow ofsGreat Neck, Miss Har riet Sh'epard of Hartford, MIfs Helen Morrison of Tittsburg and Mlsi Mar garet Edwards of Chicago. Star Chamber Proceedings. Possibly if the Professional Golfers" Association took more pains to let It be known what Is going on In Its councils it might be better understood. More than onco rerently thn writer has heard criticism directed at the association. Thero nro those who claim It does little to benefit Its members. Friends of tho organization claim It has dono a great If the following facts, published In a Boston paper, are authentic, there's something wrong some place. Here Is the story: "There is n. chnn nam1! Jack Blair. who for two or threo years has been the professional at tho Nashua Country Club, New Hampshire, and about a year ago was Btrlckcn with Inflammatory rheumatism. Ho was unahlo to attend his duties and although well treated hy the club for which he had faithfully worked, his heavy expenses soon over taxed his finances.

YALE IN GLEE OYER SHARPE'S RETURN Famous Coach's Acquisition a Development Stnrtcil Fivo Years Ago. C0HXELTS LOSS IS HTG Yale students and alumni hailed with great satisfaction the announcement last Thursday that Dr. Albert Hayes Sharpe, 1903 Medical, had been appointed di rector of athletics. Dr. Sharpe's call to his Alma Mater was tho result of a development of flvo years which had its beginnings In Cornell's football victory over Harvard by 10 to 0 In 1313. During tho Winter of 1913-191G, when Yalo was looking about for somebody to lead It out of tho football wilderness, thero was considerable ogltatlon for the return of Dr, Sharpe, but Cornell fore stalled any action that might havo como In that lino by signing the doctor to a now contract for flvo ycais. That con tract will explro next Juno, and next September Dr. Sharps will assume his duties nt Now Haven. At Yalo Dr. Sharpo will have tho ramo duties which ho exercised at Cor nell director ot athletics, heart coach In football, baseball and basketball and supervising coach In all other sports. Dr Anderson will remain director ot tho Ynlo gymnasium. Dr. Sharpo li tho highest typo of coach nnd n man eminently fitted for the work nt blind. Yale was very fortunate that Cornell's contract was running Its lest year and that Its alumnus was able to consider Its call. What Is Ynlo's gain Is Cornell's less. Dr. Sharpe- excrclbed nn Influence for great good In Cornell athletics and saved Cornel) football. Just now no other man with Dr. Sharpo's general ability looms on tho horizon. Certainly no Cornell graduate appears available. Cornell la not liltcly to taKo a step back, ward while tho others aro moving for nard and will Insist oa getting another general coach, but It's going to liavoa hard timeiT JACKLITSCH AMHERST COACH.

TENNIS STARS SEND ! CALL FOR SUPPLIES Williams and "Washburn CaWo From Franco to tho Na tional Association. BEADY FOR A. E. F. GAMES Among the communications that cam to the office of the United States Na tional Lawn Tennis Association during tho last few days tho ono which at tracted tho most attention was a cable gram signed "Williams and Washburn, Pershing." Tho text was oven mora interesting than the signatures, for these former member of the first ten, who axe Captains, overseas, requested with tho approval of Gen. Pershmg, the im mediate shipment overseas of tennis materials. . v Thotr message said that the army needs' supplies rather than money, for it Is difficult and costly to secure tennis material abroad. With the Interallied games coming on In tho spring n, team must be Chosen to represent tho Ameri can army and rackets and balls are needed both for practice and the flnfcl matches. WhAt will Interest tho tennis. Pkvyers of tho United States Is tha stataX ment that "thoro is great tennis activity In the A. E. P." On this Is based the appeal for equipment. When Oeorgo T. Adee and Julian ft Myrlck, as executive. of the National Association, considered this request they found about a dozen prominent players still In the service abroad. These In clude It Norrl Williams and Watson M, Washburn, who sent the cahlo; Dean Mathey, William A. Lamed, Charles M. Bull, Douglas Walters, George I Wrenn, Dwlght P. Davis,. Junior Brown, CI. C. Canor and Louis Graves, Being famil iar with the requirements of these men. orders were placed Immediately for half n dozen of the rackets which each would use In tournament play. These rackets, together with a hundred dozen balls and nets, were started oversea?, consigned to coi. vv sit c. Johnson, aimctio omcer or tho A. y.. P. at Breit. This material was purchased with money remaining In the fund tho associ ation raised for the Commission on Training Camp Activities. Thero was not enough to meet the needs of thn wholo A. D. P., eo the association agreed with the commission that It would look after tho special material which would bo required by the men who might rep resent the United States In toam matches, whllo tho commission would undertake to supply tho general need of the army. In line with this decision It Is thought that a shipment of considerable slzo may be mado soon. Prom the foiegolng It appears that tho work dono last year hy member of the association in providing tennis equip ment for men 'In training camps was productive of results. Tho demand for supplier indicates a real Interest In the game nnd promises Increased activity In tho United Slates as these players come home. HnX-Weil Mnlchri. Efforts to arrange an Kast-West team match for this summer havo aroused much Interest among followers, of tennis, who say that this lnterscctlonal com petition Is ono of the best means of es tablishing the relative ability of ths players from the two seaboards. As these matches could not bo played during the last two years on Recount of the war, there Is more than thn usual curiosity to neo how the sections rompare. The California Lawn fen n Is Associa tion proposed to tho United States Na tlonnl Lawn Tennis Association that such a match be played, and tho details are now being arranged by tho officers, it appeared to bn Impossible to schedule the match In August because of the large number of tournaments requested for that month. No club wants to hold a tournament In competition with eo popular an event ns an Bast-West match, nor could a week be taken out of the Uastern fchcdule because of the lateness ot tho cloy court champlonshtp this year. l'nder the ircumjtoiices the bet thing seemed to put the Intersections! contest In CiniMnnnll. and a recommen dation to tint effect will bo mado to tho executive commlltro of the U. P. N. L. T. A. at its meeting on March 21. The 1-nst will rend lis strongest players to meet the Pacific Coast team. Of course tlie makeup of each team r-onnot be de termined for weeks Dr. Sumner Hardy write that several of the Callfornlans are Ktill In the hervlce and he Is unable to tell whether or not new men will have to be found to talto their places. This also Is true of tho Kast, but It Is certain that each section will make ovary effort to securo the best available players when tho ttmo comes. The last coiite.ls of tho kind were held three years ago. In August -1M6, the Knt defeated tho West nt Forest Hills, six matches to one, the outcome being very much of a wirnriee. In thn following matches thn West turned the tables by defeating the eastern players at tho University or southern call- forma, by tho samo score. Of tho four contests held slnco 1915, each reotlon has won two. but the honors are Willi the West !n the number ot sets won and lost - NO YALE VS. W. AND J. GAME.
