international lleld ?>f tennis stars.
Australia. Jiireat Britain and Japan
having representatives entered against'
the very best players, both old an<l

sent into such a. contest.
!ii the opening match, which will
besin at I o'clock in the. afternoon,!
Maurice 10. MeLoughtin. the Los An
gelea comet, will have the distinction!
of beginning the tourney, and his op
ponents will be \rthur Oraigin. of this
city. Another feature match will "re,
played later in the day when Gerald
I.. Patterson, of Australia, who won
the world's singles championship at
Wimbledon, Kngianil, a few weeks ago.
will meet Frederick B. Alexander, of
this city. In another match Conrad B.
Doyle, of Washington, and S. Howard j
Vosholl, of Broonlyn, arc expected to
furnish a. spectacular contest.
Among tii,: foreign players who will
b<* seen in competitior. are Brookes,
Thomas and l.vcett, of Australia;'
Kumagae arid K&shio, of Japan; while
the home contingent includes Wash-1

ranging in value from J>1.000 to $2.00(1,

Selling platers change hands after!
? wry !?,?..? in which t!i?:v a chime

It is with interest, therefore, that,
horsemen are scanning the lists of the
names or horses that are to be sold by
auction later in the meeting. One of
the most important sales to l?e held iti ;
the near future will be that of James
W Model land.
Mr. McClelland probably has more
t w o-y?j?> r-olds in his bani than any
other horseman in the I'nited States,
and he is the owner of manv vearlings
that require attention. Pp'ward of
thirty brilliantly bred budding racers
that are to hear the McClelland silks
next season have come up from Ken- ?
lucky for breaking.
_ Because of this congestion. Mr. Me- '

?Flattering prospects for strong

fact that from twelve to fifteen!

of the tine new material as well as the;
"subs" from the IMK. P.ilT and litis,

baskctali and track have flattering,
prospects, too.
When the Mountaineers' new floor
conch calls oui his men next December!
to get them in shape for the game i
with Yale he will have live letter men |
from last, year?Captain Martin, Kiger,
Dawson, Mill and Alleman. In addi
tion he will have Clay llite. who has j
played three years here before going{
ii to the service, as well as new men.
old with basketball experience, who!
have not played on the varsity here. j
When Coach Sheltou calls for base
hall candidates next spring he. will ;
have at least ten veterans in Captain
Armstrong. Martin. Turkovieh. Lein
lev. Garden. Dawson, liar rick, Dorsey.
Netlien and Widmyer. and many others
who show promise and who are known
to he good material who will enroll
with the freshmen class tills fall.
Prospects for the track are not so
definitely good as liiey are for other
sports, because no team has been sup
l>i rted here in three years, but it is
known four or live men with varsity
experience, including Kay. Harry An

I'onnant" Chances of Giants Havo
Reached Stage of Speculative

Rj> Smashing Series of Victories
and Faculty of Overcoming HI3
in WIIXIA.M nil. I.MAN.
i NKW YOHK. August 24?The pen
inni chalices of the New York Giants
has reached th' stHjje of (speculative
mathematics. Which Is 10 say, tho
Giants can still win?on paper.
' iitit in Cincinnati it is said that
morbid tans lay awake nights figuring
out huw soon she Reds can cinch tho
pennant. The race lias not yet reachcd
; that stage <?f tho game when the
, chanci'S can bo narrowed down to tho
i question of a few sanies.
lle.-ei however, are sonic interesting
' statistics:
The standing- tonight is: Cincin
ina'i?seventy-eight won and thirty
four lost. 1 .riantk?sixty-seven won and
1 thirty-nino lost.
Barring postponements. Cincinnati,
to complete her schedule, has twentv.
] eight games more to play and tho
Glante thirty-four.
\\ hnl if Iteda Sluinpf
Assuming that the Reds slump and
win only ."<0 per rent of their remain
inc games, thr r;iants In order to beat
out Cincinnati will have to win 73
per cent of their games, and th?n
I'ome out ahead hy one game only.
? >r. to win. the OlantB cannot afford
to lose more than eight games of t!i
remaining t hirt y-four.
If the Reds, on the other hand, win
'?> per cent of their games. as it is
reasonable to suppose thev will. the
i Giants will have to take ihlrty-thre??.
of their thirty-four games to win the
pt'fltia !lt.
Rut. of course. there is always tho
possibility th:?t th* Reds will fall he
low tbe .*i0 t<er 1 ? nt mark. Possibility,
mind you. not probability. If Cincin
nati should win only to per cent of
her games the Giants. Iti order to win.
will have to go a li!ib> better than fil
per cent And ,?o "'? ur| Infinitum,
i which is T.atln for rldlculotisnesp.
Mathematically, the < Rants can win.
Physically and actually, they cannot.
Cincinnati needs only to win a little
more than half of her remaining games
to beat out the Giants at their present
; gait.
Some Are Misguided.
And those who count on the Reds
taking 1 tumble at this stage of tho
game .ire- w. 11 ? misguided.
The P.eds have just completed a road
record une'i tailed by any other National
l.ejgue c'ub this war. Having lorn
