Up Contest?Johnson Stars at Bat,
Getting Four Hits. / .
By JOHN A. DUGAN. *
North Augusta, S. C? April 2.?A* a farewell to "Little OM Au
giuta" the Nationals staged a ten-inning 6-to-6 battle at Warren Field
this afternoon between the Regulars and Yannigans. It was the best
workout the squad has had to date, but because of the hard grind
which the athletes have been going through, the Old Fox called the
affair off at the end of the tenth, although the players on each team
attempted to have a decision reached.
Griff worked a quartet of his youngsters in this battle?Dumont
and Craft each going five frames for the Regulars, while Yingling and
Waldbauer held the firing line for the same number of innings for the
youngsters. 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.

In the third the regulars evened
the count when Shot ton tripled to
right field and scored when Timlin*
?cut looee a wild heave.
The Tannigans came right hack in
the next frame and crabbed off the
lead. Johneon opened with a two
haae whack to left field while Mc
Bride drew a pan. 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. Craft
caught the Kansas Cyclone napping,
hut Morgan gummed th? play by
heaving wild to Judge and Johnson
pulled up at third. McBride fol
lowed with a blow along the left field
foul line, sending Walter across the
pan.
_ Th% tenth session was the real ln
of the game, as after the young
Mars (obtained a two-run lead by some
^timely hitting the regulars stepped in
'and evened things again. Waldbauer
ifaved the way for the cubs with a
-crash to center and moved along on
Oraft's wild heave. Caas and Ayers

to the center garden and \y>Uter easily
made the scoring register. With one
down in the regulars' half. Gharrity
hit to right. Craft forced him out at
the midway station, but Shotton hit
tn the same direction, placing Mollie
on third. Berman attempted to catch

field, both base runners scoring before ,

CORNEAUGOES
INTO "Y" WORK
Charpentier's Trainer to Be
,Physical Director for Part
of the French Army.
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."

Mike O'Dowd Retires
Frwn Pugilistic WorW
Camp Dodge, Iowa. April An
other ring champion has retired from
the pugilistic world to devote his at
tention to the Huns. Mike O'Dowd,
midle-welght champion, who has been j
stationed here for more than a month
will probably do no more fighting in ?
defense of his title until after the J
war. He has been assigned special .
duties which will not permit him to
appear in the ring.
Caldwdi'i Prow**.
Ray Caldwell Hena to be fired
with new ambition. He reported to
Miller Huggtns at Macon in fine
shape and has been working with
mch energy ever since. Caldwell
haa surprised the Yankees' mite
manager by promising to win thirty
games this year. Of course. thU
feat depends an the batting and
fielding ability of the New York
Americans. Caldwell scored nine
teen victories for the Yankees In
1915, which was his best record In
the American ]>ague.
YOKELL MEETS TURNER
IN WRESTLING MATCH
Mike YokeL the Salt Lake City
grappler, will make his last ap
pearance in the East this season
when he meets Joe Turner in a fin
ish wrestling match at the Lyceum
Theater Friday night. Mike owns
a ranch out near Jackson Hole, I
Wyoming, where he spends most of
his time during the summer, and
where he is kept busy rustling cat
tle. He has saved his money, earn
ed by wrestling, and don't need to
worry about the future. When
Father Time overtakes him he can
retire from the wrestling game and
settle down on his ranch.
Mike got his start in Salt Lake
City several years ago. and after
making a small fortune st the grap-.
pllng game staked a homestead in
Wyoming, and since then has!
bought all the land for miles
around and his ranch is one of the
lurgest in the State. Like most
other athletes, he is in the wrest-1
ling game for the money, but at the;
same time sticks to the game be- j
cause he likes the sport. He has
been right at the top of the ladder
f'H* the past ten or twelve years j
ii?d has always had the support of!
ihe sport-loving public, as his rep
utation /ias never been questioned,
tor he is a clean wrestler.
No matter who wins, the bout
promises to be the best that has
been witnessed here for a long time,
as both have trained faithfully and
should be in condition to put forth '
their best efforts. Yokel has wired
Manager McGeorge that he la sat
isfied with the selection of Pat
O'Connor as referee. /

Wy HfOHWAY.
Favorite* and contenders divided
the card pretty evenly In a good af
ternoon'^ racing provided at the
Bowie race course for the second of
their twelve day spHng meeting yes
terday.
Several horses which were heavily
backed failed to come up to expec
tations, but in >three of the events
odds-on favorites easily disposed of
their fields.
Another great crowd was on hand
to enjoy an afternoon of unmarred
sport. Train accommodations were i
excellent both from Washington and ]
Baltimore and the two specials which
left after the last race for Washing
ton arrived in record time. It hsd
been anticipated that there would be
a great deal of trouble this year In I
providing good transportation facili
ties for racegoers, but officials had |
succeeded in smoothing out all diffl-1
cuties. it Is evident.
j Fact thst the mingling of the horses
I which have been racing during the
! winter and the ones which hsve traln
i ed In this vlctnity is baffling turf
I enthusiasts in picking the winners is j
j .shown by the fact that several ponies
j of undisputed class are being per
i mitted to go to the poets poorly sup
I ported In the mutuels.
I Yesterday was a record In the way
of scratrhea. there being only three
on the whole card.
Onico. the star in J. M. dimmer's
stable, fulfilled the generous expects- j
tions of those who have followed his
Improvement and beat a Held of good
ones in the smart time of J:07 1-6,
j which equals the track record. j
Poor showing of Miss Burgomaster I
j and The Masquerader, two "sure
things," came as a keen disappoint
I ment to many local patrons with i
[ whom these two horses are popular. |
Miss Burgomaster, after assuming an j
| easy lead, quit as she came into the i
j stretch.
An excellent card Is provided for to
