W0RDEK DYER. Captata of Kastern champion team. Track Championship. Hon the t enlral . Trek a lea I V. f-lrrn Hi: l nets . Kaurtera I'nlnta Were IMWtied. IT . 1 baseball p'ayd last spring wis not up to th- -t:;ndard of former years, with only two schools kmvlas teams of all-around ability. Kastern won the title simply because It played its best game at the rirht time. in tfte championship series. It could hardly be classed as a superior to Tech. which was in possession of a real high school ball club. The Manual Trainers suffered just as many othr baseball teams have in the past years. A short S'.-jes was the cause of Tech's down fall and If it had been able to play in a longer series, the writer believes it would have jrrabbed the honors. Of the other teams Business was prob ably the best, with Western and Cen tral ranking In the order named. Busi ness started out by handing Tech a good lieking and with Speed Kelly on the slab, looked to be real contenders but in the last contest of thv series the club blew and Eastern rolled up the largest score in history, that of 27 to 2. West ern looked gooo in 'streaks and managed to win over Business in one of the games of the season. Dyer a Big; Factor. Dyer was Kastcrn's best bower In base ball. This all-around athlete came to the rescue of hir ttam when Olarte Johnson failed to Oliver in the box and pitched hi.j team to victory by displaying the greatest bit of nerve. Many times Dyer was In bad with men on bases but failed to take the aerial route and came out with flying colors. Next to him in prom inence were Katzy Dean and Frank Greer. These two men made up the offensive Havre de Grace, as th bookmaktng sye- j tern at the latter track would attract a I certain number of patrons fiom here. Hut the difiereiv.e ig nothing to quibble 'about, and It is mmv tsava probable ar 1 rangements w ill be made similar to those i in past years, when the season opened I hen- on April 1.'. and closed on November !'. In those days there was opposition j to IMmlico, hut the racing went on jnst sjay or tseptomner. Australian Decision.

The acting chief Justice said that It was said the owner of the letter boa had used it for the purpose of betting with people. The section seemed to in dicate that what was called a "place" must be some spot In which some human being could do -that which was objection able under the act He thought the legislature rccailred that a "place" should be somewhere some thing could be done by a human being. A letter box was not such a place. It was an Instrumentality of the business carried on, but that did not .constitute it a "place." If a letter box at the post office was an Illegal place, then a box at the man's house Into which letter were placed or the door at which they were delivered, would be equally a "place"' liable to be declared a common nuisance. He did nqt think the legislature Intend ed that a Utter box should be consid ered a "place." The appeal waa allowed and the conviction quashed.

Nothing better illustrated this remark able precision of Interference than Och aenreiter's brilliant march down the field for a touchdown - when the score stood ' 7 to 6 in favor of Husinesa and only Ave - minutes to play. Business was held for downs on their -.-yard line, and were forced to kick. However, the wind was against Ray Wise, the sterling little half back of the Stenographers, and the punt fell short. Ochsenrelter was the man to take advan tage of the ball In mklneld. and set off with the determination of scoring. It took Just four rushes for the Tech marvel to score the winning points. As fast as a Business man would try to .hamper Ochsenreitar's progress, he would be un ceremoniously bowied over by a diving Manual Trainer, wtlo was taught to pick off in the right way. It goes to show what any club can do I when the rudiments of the game are In i sisted upon.

There is a tournament on at pres ent at the Motor Oub. the first of its kind ever organized, but the popularity of the latest Variety of golf game is spreading, ami soon tournament will be on at all the clubs where they have a billiard parlor. The game can be played on any pool table, each pocket representing a hole. In.-tead of the putting iron, there Is the cue or white ball. One other ball is used, and this Is the one the player must nocket In the least number of strokes. W. C. Poertner. who framed the rules for tne tournament now In progress at the Motor Club, has made the game rather difficult Even the best pool or. billiard player must practice before he can make a creditable score. Each shot at the object bail counts a stroke In the score. The object ball Is spotted in the center of the table and the shooter or cue ball is placed on the upper spot. The player then start the round by trying to pocket the object ball In the side pocket, representing hole No. 1. When he has made the hole, the next player starts. The object ball la spotted In the center of the table, but the cue ball is left where It rests after the pre ceding player had made the hole. Quite naturally, the player who has Just holed out will try to leave the rue ball In a position where It la difflYult for the next man to play the hole. This bring Into play a man's ability to play position at pool or billiards. Should the cue ball come to rest so that the object ball cannot be spotted, the balls are set up again aa at the start of a game. One of the rules Is that In making a shot or stroke one of the balls must go to a cushion. This makes it hare for a player who Is trying- to place the object ball close to the pocket so thst he can hole out on hi next shot. It compels him to put a certain amouat of force behind the stroke, be cause if the object ball doe not reach a cushion the shooter or cue ball must. Even if. the hall Is pocketed the- cue ball must strike the cushion. The penalties for a scratch, pocket ing the cue ball, la throe strokes in ginning of the season, it la obvious that audi should be in the method of scholas tic coaching.
