By WILLIAM PEKT.
"The story recently published that I
had asked President Ban Johnson to
use his Influence with Connie Mack for
the purpose of obtaining one or more of
the Athletics outfielders Is a He."
"I did see Johnson In New Tork a
short while ago, but the subject of play

manacer. Chance who Is thoroughly
qualified to talk on the subject: was asked
point blank if the brand of baseball In
the American League was faster than
the baseball played In the parent organ
ization. T cannot see much difference" stated
Chance. "I belie e that the American
Lea cue Ditchers are better than those In
the National League but outside of that
there is little to choose.
Asked whv It was that this season the
games plased in the National League
consumed less time than those In the
American, Chance replied: "Up to this
jear It was Just the opposite American
League games eie hustled through
quicker than the games plajed In the
National I cannot explain It. I reckon
it's Just one of those things."
In discussing the umpires of the
American League, Manager Chance said:
"You may put me on record as saying
that of a 1 the umpires I ever saw in

"I don't go around crjing about the

volumes for the discipline and self-

New Tork, June 23. Rowing experts
here today are advocating the chopping
off of one mile from the standard four

three-mile race would furnish a more
spectacular battle than does the four-

Eut after that the stroke slowed down
and the strain was great on the rowers.
The varsity elght-oared race Saturday,
which Syracuse won by half a length over
Cornell, was" one of tho most thrilling
ever staged on the Hudson. The Syra
cusans came up from fourth placa at the
two-and-a-hair-mlle marie nrsi passed
Cornell, and then took the lead away
from Columbia, which crew soon dropped
back, and then got first position.
Almost as remarkable as tne Syracuse
spurt was that made by the University
of Washington crew. Passing the three-
and-a-hair-mlle mark in nun position,
they finished three lengths behind the
leader. The Seattle boys became strok
ing at a tremendous clip, overhauling
Wisconsin and Columbia, and finished
third, only a trifle more than a length
behind Syracuse. Had the spurt been
timed sooner and the oarsmen the stam
