It was a nip-and-tuck affair from gong to gong, with timely swatting featuring. The Yans were on two occasions out in front, but the Regulars were equal to the task each time and managed to- shoot through enough runs in the final session to come out with honors even. The Cubs jumped into the lead in the opening frame when Cass beat out an infield blow and moved up a peg when Ayers looked over four wide ones. Walter Johnson then crashed to center field and June raced across the counting block; but McBride's effort ?ras a forced double play, which killed off the chances of further scor ing.

Gharrity struck out but Uncle Nick waa Johnny on the spot aa he banged a single through the infield into the right ter ritory which allowed both base run ners easy romping to the plate. A1 Waldbauer allowed the veterans to forge to the front for the first time in the lucky seventh when he started them off by passing Morgan and La van. Gharri ty forced the watch charm second sacker at the far cor ner and Craft popped out, but the regulars were not to be denied as Bert Shot ton smacked one on the i?vse to left field which tallied Lav&n and Gharrity, the speed merchant tak ing the midway sack on the throw in. Foster grounded to Waldbauer, but the Richmond semi-pro in mak ing his throw to first hit the right field bleechers and Bert Just romped to the dish. The Cuba evened the matters again in the eighth after two handa were out when Johnson hit safely for the third time.

Paris. March 7.?Raymond Corneau. tha man who taught Charpentler, the champion French boxer, how to fight, has gone in tha American T. M. C. A. service. Corneau has a system of training all hit own. He gets result?~ln the ring and out of it. He is now a "Y" physical director of part of the French army. He Is assigned to one of the Foyers du Soldats, the "Y" huts for the pollu. He works under Dr. G. 8. Meylan. professor of physical education in Co lumbia University, now In Y. M. C. A. work In France. "Charpentler," says Dr. Meylon. ' wages his battles like Sullivan and Fitxsimmons used to wage theirs. He puts every ounce of hla strength Into them, fights with might and main, and knows absolutely nothing about the word 'quit.' M Charpentler holds the heavy-weight championship of Europe. He won it over Bombardier Wells, the British fighter. In their first meetings In Brussels Charpentler triumphed in the fourth round. Later In London he landed victory in exactly seventy three seconds. These successes over Wells made him undisputed leader of j Europe in the heavy-weight class. The fact that Charpentler was then I but eighteen years old and weighed j seventy pounds less than his opponent ; made his victories the more remark- j able. Corneau. as his trainer, came in for no little glory. Charpen^er's admirers thought the world's championship was easily with in his reach. Then the war broke out. Charpentler and Corneau both went into the French army, the former with the aviation service, the latter with his regiment. In Comeau's regiment eighty soldiers failed to come up to standard phys ically. Corneau suggested systematic work to develop these men. The sug gestion was not adopted. Corneau was a private. A little later Corneau had a chance 1 with the fifteen-year-old son of a French colonel to show what his meth od of training could accomplish. Im- j mediately his proposal to take hold of the eighty deficient men in his regi ment was accepted and he started in to work. The upshot of it was that Corneau came into the Y. M. C. A. to devote all of his time' to building up the men who need it. Ted Meredith and "Hobey" Baker, noted American athletes, are now in the aviation service In Jfrance. Baker has won two victories In the air. Both were mentioned in a recent dispatch from the French, who show an appreciation of the work done by the American aviators. The dispatch, quoting: the French paper. Petit Parisien. in part, reads as fol lows: "Our American allies, who are beginning: to re-enforce our numbers, are already proving their valu*. They are sportsmen and show much interest in the training of pilots. "Among them let uf cite the holder of the world's record for run ning. Ted Meredith, who is finishing his instruction somewhere in France. The famous football and hockey player. Hobey Baker, is already at the ! front and has two victories to his ^redit. "We can have confidence in the aid brought by the American pilots. 1 Before Ion*? 2.000 of them, perfectly trained, will take their place in I the ranks of the allied army." HARVARD TO PLAY 8 GAMES.
