Trotting Races In Buffalo F B3 FRANK G. MENKE. N.w York. Avril 1.-Fifty years ago a nunber o- thr ,ghti-d sportnen met in Buffalo ami d'- id-id to stape a har tw'-as ho- me tm..; in that ity. with sizeable pria. for a-lh of tie t-wnts. Prior tI that tin. no egular unmixed metings had been held. Hforses in the same sectans sometimes were raced against each ither for small bets. Mixed ra- imeetiniga wer' held In Michigan , t that wa" tie limit of racing as far as the trottets and pacers were con -,rned. Th~ fa-t that this sum:nvn-r marks the fiftieth annive-sa-y of that memorable meting in buffalo on August 14, 15, 1-' and 17. 151. hais aused the turf enthu rasts to recount again the story of those earIy days of horse rating. First Pursees $12.500. The prime movers In organizing the first regular meet were: C. J. Wells and W. Gd. Par-go. who later formned the ex pr-esa company that atill bears their names. C J. Hamlin. the founmder of the Corn Products Refining Company, an si,000,000 corporation at tie present time; E. T. Bedford. Gen. Rt. I.. Howard, Jewett Richmond. M. P. Bu.'h and sev eral other well-known Buffaloans of that period. When it was announced that purses totaling $11.i) would be hung up for the events, it brought gaspe of astonishment from the turf world. The sum was amaz Ingly large. In the mind.- of the horse men of those days. and the lure of the gold brought to Buffalo some of the best horses of that day. And, also. It brought to the city thousands of spectators, some c-oming from the remote sectIons of the country. Buffalo was peopled with a larger crowd- of visitors than ever be fore In It5 history. Howeve ,' the promoters of the meetIng. whIch was held on the Cold Springs mile track, added two extra races to the pro gram and boosted the total prize awards to $12,500. SUeese Doesed Raetag, The generosity of the promoters of that first meeting aund ita successful staging brought about an instant boom In lIght harness racing. The crowds weat wiad over it. Many men who never hal owned horses bought some; they wanted to get a slIce of the other melons to be cut at the subeequent meetings.

Were Born 'ifty Years Ago No better illustration of how the speed of the harness horse has increased can be given than a study of the program of that tirst meeting; one which brought to gether the fastest trotters of that time. What was considered amazing speed in those days Is like ned to a snail's pace in the present. 1atial Race. 2:45 Trot. On the first day two events were run off The opener was for "horses that never have done better than 2:7 in pub lic." The purse was $1,000 and the con ditions of the contest called for trotting in one-mile heats, best three In five. The second event of the day was a free-for all trot. in mile heats, best three in five, for a S1,250 prise. The second day of racing found two events carded. One was a best three in tive (mile heats) for 2:34 trotters; purse, 1.000. The other contest was a team elash, best three in five, for a $1,250 prise. The star event of the meeting wes ran off on the thIrd day-a race that ex cited almost as much comment in those days as would a $1,000,000 purse contest in this age. The promoters hung up a purse 01 35,750 for the free-for-all battle, best three in five. The race brought together three of the greatest borses developed in the old days-George M4. Patchen, jr., Dexter and Bolla Golddust. The Dexter horse won the stake ln straight heats-L27 1-4, 2.25 and 2.25. ad the crowd went into a frenzy of delight over his "remarkable accomplishment."~ Rtealising that the huge crowd yearned to see a little more racIng that after, noon. the prormoters hastily arranged an Other event, changing the original plan to card but one race. The special race was for $1.000 best three in five and it was won by a horse named Panie, in 2.33 3-4, 2.30 3-4 and 2.31 1-2. The last day of the racing found twa events programmed-one for a $1.000 Purse and a special for 3500 for five year-ds and under." Dexter, under sad die, won the special in 2 3-4. 2.28 and 2.18, the latter mark beIng the best hung up at the meeting. The enthusiasm displayed by the horse men and the spectators at the Buffala event, and its success in a financial way, influenced Cleveland horuelovers to hold a meeting in their city a week or so later. It, too, wee a prosperous undertaking, Soon afterwards the big prominent horse lovers got together, formed a little as soepition for the purpose of holding regular meeting. in the future.

MARBURY IS PRESIDENT Organized baseball and the Feds hare nothing on the Potomac and Congress Heights leagues when it comes to patch ing up differences. In the latter league there was a feelIng similar to the dog esat-dog style of the 0. B. Feds. The main object of consolidation was for stronger teams and faster baseball. as there wasn't really enough material for ten good teams. Still, judging from the assets and funds on hand both leagues paid well and were well sup ported. But the league holds only for the sport and not for a financial proposItion, hence with six strong, fest teams, Anacostla and the Heights will enjoy baseball that will be a credit to both places. The -tgreement of consolidation was mu tual on a 60-50 basis, meaning, three games on the Heights. Monday. Wednes day and Friday. and Tuesday. Thursday and Saturday In Anacostla. Three teams for Congress Heights, namely Congress Heights Baseball Club, Steel Plant Base ball Club and Hamilton A. C., while An acostia will have the Machinists' Baseball Club. Drillery Baseball Club and the Highland A. C. Also in each and every other detail it was share and share alike. A week ago a committee from the Po tomac League waited on the Congress Heights league with consolidation in view. A temporary organization was formed and a draft for consolidation was adopted. James Marburg was nominated temporary chairman, he appointing R. F. Burgess secretary. A meeting of the leagues was held on Wednesday at the home of James Mar burg. In Anacostia, at which date the consolidation was formed. Clubs repre sented: LeClair. Mgr.. Machinists' Base ball Club; M. McGrath, Mgr.. Highlands A. C.; C. Waller. Mgr.. Congress Heights Baseball Club; J. Allred. Mgr., Steel Plant Baseball Club; Reinhardt, Mgr., Drillery Baseball Club; C. Grant. Mgr., Hamilton A. C. The name of the league will be that of the parent organisation or Potomac League. The officers elected were James Marburg. president; Adam Founthold, first vice president; John James. second vice president; Robt. F. Burgess, secretary; Benj. Dement, financial secretary; J. R. Calderon. treasurer. The personnel of these men is known on both sides of the river, and one would find it hard to question their ability, in tegrity and honesty in giving Anacostia and Congress Heights strong, fast, clean. spirited and wholesome baseball. The records in both leagues in the past years show good support in attendance, and are again preOnised as good and bet ter for the coming season. Last but not least, the league will join the amateur association and participate in the cham ptoAship seriee of the District of Co lumbia.

April 1.-M. Thomas. the midget coxswain who steered the Co lumbia varsity crew to a victory over Yale iast fail, resigned as a member 0f the Blue and White navy yesterday. Thomas is a sophomore. He was cox swain of the freshman eight at Pough keepsie last year and impressed Coach Jarnes C. Rice so that he jumped to the varsity boat last fail, supplanting Fogg and Paddock, both cockewains of two year,' experience. RIce's poor showing last year, It is said, was traceable in a measure to poor ceckswains, Paddock had great difliculty in keeping a straight course, and really lost the race for the Child's Cup against Prinoeton and Penn sylvania by steering into a flag. Rice felt disappointed over the loss of Thomas, as it was the secofid man frost the varsity boat to go in a week. Muti ro, bow, had been forced to quit rowing by the savice of his physician. No rea. son was announced for the r'eignation of Thornas, but it is belIeved he was a' odds with memne of the member. of the 'varsIty crew. Rice said that when the squad goee outdoorS Monday Fogg prob ably will he asigned to guide the varsity shell along the Hudson,. Spartants Issue Dei. The fast Spartan A.

Whiting Estes, potentate of Al men Temple. A. A. 0. N. W. 8.. and George H. Emmons. monarch of Kalli polls Grotto, No. 15, M. 0. V. P. E. R., the two branches of the Masonic order that will provide the talent for the annual gane to be played this year on June 17. at American League Park. are keeping "mum'' as to their players. but each is telling the other that he had better have "some team" on the field. While it is still a little early to start "digging up" the players. both Estes and Emmons are quietly at work along these lines. There is probably no more friendly rivalry existent than the two bodies of masonry, and the losers of the contest on June 17 will "euffer" for a year. Keeping this well in mind each of the rival leaders are going to make a -determined effort to be behind the nine that will carry the big and of the score. It te expected that team captains will be appointed shortly and then the names of the players will gradu ally be brought to light. In the mean time Messrs. Estes and Emmons will be doing considerable scout duty. William Clabaugh, chairman; Perry P. Patrick, and Frank X. Scott. the com mittee of the Masters Association of 1916, in direct charge of the game. are busy on the business details. Capt. Louis Wilson, disbursing of ficer of the District. and William Gude. well known in business circles, have been made leaders of the Shrine and Grotto nines. respectively.

FRED SWITZER THE STAR Annexes High Individual Average. High Came. High Set and Lead in Spares. The curtain was drawn on the bowl ing season in The Washington Herald Duckpin League last Friday. when the Jenson team romped In with the set, against the Casions. The second season in the history of the league proved to be a success in every way, as Capt. Charlie Deming's Jensons landed the champion ship in a great race. which was not de cided until the closing weeks. During the early weeks of the.season first one team would grab the lead, and then another, but toward the end the Jensons acc-umlated a comfortable mar gin of games and romped in well in front. The light for second place in the cir cult was one of the best that has been seen in the District. as both the Caslon and Roycrofts finished the season with the same amount of victories and de feats, but the first named were awarded the honors for having the larger num ber of total pins. Although the Bewicks finished in the rut, they were not easy picking for any team. Owing to having lost the services of two of their most consistent bowlers, they were handicapped during the final five weeks' playing. The feature of the race was the spurt made by Capt. John son's Caslon team, which appeared to be hopelessly cellar champions during the middle of the season. The champion Jenson team captured the high team game with a count of 601, while the (Caslons finished second with 590. The high team set went tol the Jensons with 1.690 pins, while the Caslons again obtained second money with a mark of 1.661. "Freddy" Switzer. the lead-off man for the Jen sons. captured the high individual average. while Brigham, of the Roy crofts. was second in line. Switzer was easily the best bowler in the circuit, as he romped off with the high individual set of 344 and high individual game of 131. He also put across the highest number of spares with 116. Brigham put acrosi the second high set with 3.20. while Ca hoon. of the Caslons. finished second in the individual high game with 125. Brigham scored as second high man in the spares. while Cahoon annexed the highest number of strikes, obtaining twenty-five during the season. George lear was second in this line with twenty. Switzer, of the Jensons: Ca hoon. of the Casions: Brigham. of the Roycrofts. and Sutton. of the Bewicks received O izes for being high man on their team. The averages follow: JENSONS.

Each desires only to have f get the water and pull it through that will enable them to get their b4 line a winner. the only difference be of teaching the men the way to gel One so often hears the questio kind of stroke a certain crew uses, Courtney, the Jim Rice, the Pat Slide em Rollers. Answering the questions as named bove: The slide is a seat on rollerd mounted on tracks which enables the arsman to obtain a much longer stroke than would be possible on a stationary sest. The stretcher is the brace which contains the shoes and is equipped with thumb screws. hich makes it possible to adjust the stretcher to fit a long or a short man. The rigger is the iron braces that extend out over the sides of the shell and permit of a longer leverage on the oar. The oarlock is the swinging brace attached to the end of the rigger which holds the oar in place. It has a flat surface on one side against which the back of the oar, which also is flat, should rest evenly while the Oarsman is pulling. The button is the leather band. or pad. around the ear about three feet from the end of the handle. It fIts Into the oarlock and acts as a washer. Nonmberting Seats. The blade is the broad flat end of the oar. The seats are numbered from the bow down. stroke being number eight. Port is the left side of the boat looking from the coxswain' seat up, while the stalboard is the right side. So much for the boat and the oars, now for the terms denoting certain actions by the oarsman. Feathering is the dropping of the back of the oar on the bottom of the oarlock. thereby allowing the blade to become parallel with the surface of the wa ter. The oar is generally carried feathered until about within a foot of the place to catch, when it is gradual ly turned so that by the time one is ready to make the catch the blade will be in position Feathering is of great importance for two special reasons. one that it lessons the wind resistance against the oar when It is being carried back for another stroke; the other is that It enables the oarsman to get over the wash of the men behind him. The striking of a wash against the full flat back of a blade is liable to knock the oar from the hands. Reach Explained. The reach is the action of reacting a1 far out as a man can comfortably de to get the water. At no time should he reach to such a distance that he loser his ewuilibrium. He must be ready at all times during the recovery to put his whole weight on the oar and be able to commence his pull without finding it necessary to first raise his body. The catch Is the begin. ning of the pull. It should be mads the instant the full reach is obtained. and should be sharp and snappy. After the catch has been made the drive should follow. in fact, the drive should be with the catch. no separate motion being apparent. The drive Is the most important part of the stroke. as it LINCOLNS ANNOUNCE OPENING OF SCHEDULE The Lincoln A. C. will play its initial contest today at Vigilant Park. meet ing the Cleveland A. i.

Not only must the weight of the body be thrown into it. but the legs must be brought down with the drive of the body. for the snap: in the stroke depends on two elements. at quick- catch and a hard. snappy drive. tee Tes Weight. An oarsman must realize that the be ginning of the drive is the catch. that' is, the start. and it must be the hardest part of the stroke, for once the oar has been started through the water the weight of the body and the Momsetum gained will assist in keeping it moving. Of course. the oarsman must not depend wholly upon these, for the drive should continue until the finish of the stroke is reached. The stroke should be as long as it is possible to keep the full weight of the body on the oar and when this can be! no longer done the oar should be quickly withdrawn from the water. the feather made, and the forward swing of the body commenced. From the time the oar is taken from the water until the oarsman to ready to make a new catch, the moat Important technique of rowing is taking place. A proper recovery does as much for the boat as the pull. One may undo everything he has accomplished in his drive by making a poor recovery. At the finish of the stroke the position of the body should be a little beyond the perpendicular. Just enough to per mit of free action with the hands; the shoulders should be thrown back squarel and the hands should be well up on the body. As soon as the drive IF completed the hands should be dropped enough to, allow the blade to leave the water, the oar feathered and the hands shot for ward toward the stern of the boat They should be immediately followed by the shoulders, but the slide should not be moved until this Is done. Slow Recovery. One of the hardeet things the coach has to teach In rowing is to have a man t keep a slow slide on the recovery. The slide can serve a wonderful purpoe if this Is done, but If the slide is rushed down so that it hits against the ends of the tracks. the boat Is checked ad the work done in the drive is rendered use less. There is another good reason for a slow slide. During no other part of the stroke does the oarsman have a chance to get his wind If he rushes his slide he is using up the time he should be resting and is merely pumping himself out. A man who rushes his slide Is of practically no use in a boat during a race, for he will die before it is half over and be unable to pull his own weight for the rest of the race. There Is no stop to the action of rowing until the coxswain calles "letter-vun," the body Is always in motion either swinging out after the catch, pulling the stroke through or the immediate awing back for the next catch. The motion is similar to that of a pendulum of a clock. There are a few terms applied to faulty STATE CANCELS WITH SUSQUEHANNA NINE State College, Pa..
