So is it with each muscle In an oars man's body. Each must perform Its full service or the whole mechanism is thrown out of order and the man's ef forts rendered useless. The failure of the proper twist of the wriat at the right moment might cause the oar to become caught in the water, thereby preventing the man from rowing, and upsetting the whole teamwork required of every successful crew. Not only Is the physical body devel oped by the training received in row ing, but the mental body is also re quired to perform an efficient service. for to be a member of a crew that ex pects to win a boat race, one must have a certain high degree of intelligence. Slew Thiakers Barred. There is no place in a shell boat for a slow thinker, for such a man would have numerous chances during the course of a race to put his crew out of the running, merely by forgetting to do the right thing at the right time. To bring about the proper condition careful training is necessary. There has been times when success ful crews have been gotten Together In lees than a month, but it was undoubt edly a case when they won a race on account of being up against crews of an inferior quality. Any rowing authority knows that good crews are not developed over night, but that months of patient and hard labor are necessary before eight men have learned enough, or are in fit physical condition to represent their clubs in a big regatta. It will be seen that the rowing game requires as much, if not more, careful training and preparation as any other competitive sport. There is not the space available at this time to explain what is necessary for the proper training of a crew, but in a later article this end of the game will be covered. Supporters of baseball, football, bas University of Pil Successful Bas Pittsburg, Pa., March 4.-Only two games remain unplayed on the University of Pittsburgh basketball schedule. On March 7 the Panthers meet Washington and Jefferson. and on the following Fri day Allegheny College. With this pair ofl contests off the card, regardless of their result, the Blue and Gold five will reach the end of the most successful floor sea son in Pitt annals. Pitt's sensational victory over Pennl State on the latter's floor serves as further indication of the strength of Coach Flint's quintet. which has been defeated only once in seventeen starts. Never before had the locals triumphed at State College, and this fact made the victory all the more appreciated. Two long tosses by Frank McNulty in the closing minutes of play cinched the lead for the Pittsburghers. Incidently, this marked the second major sport in which Pitt has bested State this year, the basketball supremacy following close upon last fall's win in football. Four of the five Pitt regulars will be held over for next winter's aggregation, McMaster being the only loss by gradu ation. Capt. IAobic and Mtson each have one more year to go, while Hant ings and McNulty wiil be retained for two more seasons. Carlson, Nicolas, East erday and Monk, of the "var'sity squad. will all be available for 1917. PLAN LONG TRIP FOR COLUMBIASWIMERS New York. 3arch 4.--If the ColumbIa' swimming team ends this winter's inter collegiate season at the top of the league, there is a strong possibility that the team will take a ten-day's trip through the Middle West, according to an unofncip i announcement yesterday: Columbia alumni in Cleveland. Cincin nati and St. Louis have suggested that the swimming team meet several of the teams in the Western College Conference because of the attraction- which H. E, Voilmer, holder of several championships, would furnish. AccordIng to a tentative plan, eleven men will be taken on the trip. These will include four fast swimmers for the relay events and races; two piungers, two fancy divers, one substitute, and the manager and ebach. This trip would be made late in March or during the first of April, because the league season does not end until the Columbia-Yale meet at New Haven da March 17.

So much must be granted, for none of these sports have the financial handi cap that is put upon rowing. In all of the foregoing mention there is a method of obtaining financial sup port by charging admtssion fees to spectators for witnessing competitions but the rowing game can obtain no such assistance. There is no way by which admission can be cha.rged spectators for the privi lege of witnessing boat races, as the course cannot be Inclosed. The public In free to enjoy the great sight of see ing four or five crews making a neck and neck finish without having It cost them one penny, but there is no sport that costs more to the clubs aupporting it than this form of athletics. Rowing Is Expeasive. When the cost of sending a crew to a regatta is taken into consideration one can realize what difficulties the sup porters of rowing are forced to over come in order to keep this great game going The cost of an eight-oared shell av erages about $500: each oar used in an eight costs from $10 to 815. and if a professional coach is obtained, which is generally done in all boat clubs that expect to make a showing during the senson. his salary ranges anywhere from 3100 to $500 a month, and this with other incidental expenses, brings the cost to the clubs in preparing crews for regattas to about $500. 1 The expense stated in the foregoing is merely for preparing the crews to go away to a regatta. Now consider the other expenses! If.the regatta is to be held in another eftv. the club is required to pay the railroad fare for all of the crew men. the coach, and other attendants neces sary for the proper handling of crews and boats. To ship the boat special cars are re 'uired. as the shells are too long and too delicate to be forwarded by ex press. The club in required to psy for this csvi unless it Is fortunate enough to get together a sufficient number of rooters to warrant the purchasing of a block ticket for about forty persons. thereby getting the use of a baggage car fre for their boats, but in any event the cost runs over $100. even if the regatta is in a near-by city. Upon arrival In the regatta city, the :t Closes Most ket-ball Season Scholastic deficiencies have resulted in the disqualification of Raymond Carroll. Pitt's crack sprinter, and have thus dealt a hard blow to the university's track prospects. Carroll is joint holder of the 6-yard indoor record, as well as a former owner of the title in the Junior A. A. U. 100 yards. le was counted on as a strong performer for the Blue and Gold this spring, but low marks in the elasaroom will bar him from compe tition. With Carroll lost to the team. it is up to Coach Kerr to develop additional talent in the short distances. "Jim" Burwell, the speeder, who holds uni versity records in the 100 and 440, is fig ured as a point-producer in the sprints. Kerr will have to do some rapid work in order. to prepare a good quartet for the one-mile relay at the Meadowbrook games in Philadelphia on March 11. The dual meet with Syracuse, sched uled for the Salt City on March 18, will provide a strenuous test for the Pitt track men. Syracuse took over the locals in an outdoor meeting last year, and "dobme" shows them to be equally stron~g this season, One new man on whom Pitts burgh is depending is Albright, the Mss silon (Ohio) boy, who has already low ered the university record for the mile, indoors. STAR PRELIIARIES 'MAY PRECEDE BOUT New York, March 4.-Two star prelimi naries may precede the Willard-Moran bout on March 5. Tex Rtickard, the pro moter, was hopeful today of securing Harry Wills and Samn McVey, the negro heavy-weights, to work in the first bout of the night, followed by a Jim Flynn Battling Levinsky meeting, Swarthmore Trims Penn State 8#arthmore, Pa., March 4.-Swarth store closed a successful basket-ball meason with a vietory last night, when Penn Stat, was beaten in, a speedy end hard-fought game by 28 to 23, The :wo Steams were evenly matched, the. score being a tie of 12 to 12 at the md of the first half.

Another item is the entry fees, which amount to a considerable sum. $20 to 825 for an eight, $15 for a four, and 110 and $. for doubles and singles. Total up the expense incurred in pre paring and sending crews to one regat ta and the figures will be found to be creepng up near the $1.000 mark. Of courae this condition does not hold good ir. every club, for some of them are fortunate enough to have good am ateur coached as members, and in this event the coach Item Is cut out, but a fair estimate of cost per season to the average club is close up to the above mentioned mark. Bet Club Gets Little. The question has often been asked what does a boat club get out of this expenditure. And the answer it "Noth ing but the glory of winning and a tro 1,hy of some kind, but never can it ob tain one tent whether it wins or loses." The only method a club has of getting money Ia by payment of dues by the mcmbers. which. considering the privi leges granted, is a small sum. I do not claim that row ing is the most popular sport, for there are a number of others that are mote favored by the public, but the claim Is made that it Is the greatest sport. It has been shown that rowing is equal in advantages to any of the other sports, but where rowing excels is in the fact that being one of the oldest and having received less financial aid than any. it has managed to exist and improve as the years have gone hy. No one can claim for any other sport that it has lasted purely on its merits as a good, clean, and healthful game. and has never had the financial advan- I inges enjoyed by the sports that charge admission to spectators for the priti lege of witnessing competitions. Those who have gone into the game have enjgyed it for its sporting and healthful benefits and have put their money into it with no hope of receiv ing financial returns. Although it suffered at one time from the taint of profeasionalism. which has since been wiped out, the game today stands as one of the cleanest of ama teur sports, and offers to the young man the greatest opportunity for de velopment and athletic enjoyment GREAT EXCITEMENT!

Canadian Volun teerS, and is now on his way to the front. Tyson had been with the Bisons for two years. -oining the team at the solicitation of Manager Clynmer in July. 1914. Previous to that time he was with the Carter.-Crumnes, oS. Niagara Falls, where he attracted the attention of Man ager Clymer. While with the semni-lfro team at the Fa~lls he ptched four exhi bition games against Federal League teams, defeating each of them, and re ceived a tempting ofrer from Joe Tinker. of the Chifeds. after the manager of the Whales saw Tryon mow down his heavy bitters One Bunday afternoon. Tyson did not get off to a very good start last asson, but was a big factor in the winning of the pennant by the Bisons in the closing games of the sea son. He was called upon to twirl against Providence in two of the crucial games. holding his Opponents safe enough to let the Bisons win. STOVALL TO QUIT 'RASERATL.

March 4.-A~cording to members of the Baseball Players' Fra ternity, the attention of the National 'ommission will shortly be called t> the case of Outfielder James H1. Johnston. formerly of the Oakland club, who jumped to the Federal League club of Newark last fall. Later in the season Chairies H. Ebbets, of the Brooklyn Na tionals, claimed he has a verbal contract with the player. Johnston was signed by the Newark Federals at a salary of $4.000 a )ear for two years, with the ten-day release clause eliminated. lie accepted $1.(3) ad vance money. Later Ebbets offered him a contract with the Brooklyn club calling for S3.60 a year. Johnston claims that he did not agree to these terms and re fused to sign when the Brooklyn club mailed contracts to his home. Johnston contends that Ebbets must as Fujne his Federal League contract. The Brooklyn club holds that the alleged ver bal agreement made with Johnston war rants it in Insisting that the player sign a contract calling for a salary of tr/1J a year with the ten-day release clause included. There will be no strike over the mat ter, but it is likely to be carried to the courts.
