If you don't believe us, ask the boys that hover around the Florida avenue bailiwick, who are at tempting to land a pennant for Clark C. Griffith. The off-day yesterday found a division of the squad after the morn ing drill as the Foxey Manager did the pilot 2t by leading an even half dozen of his warriors to the Virginia 1 City of George Washington Dairy. Alexandria. Va. The balance of the squad hiked it to the north to find occupation of the essential character somewhere near Sparrow Point. Bal timore. Md.; Wilmington, Del., or maybe Chester, Pa. At any rate, Griffs hired men are looking for positions that will push them by the exemption boards, and the Old Fox took a few of his se lections yesterday to that burg that is governed by one Mayor Tom Fish er. All were seeking Jobs of the essential order. Not mentioning any names, the Alexandria Shipbuilding Company is about to put a club In the field that will equal any in the so-termed 8teel and Corporation clr : cult of our Northern States. This line-up. with either Jimmy I Shaw or Harry Harper on the flr | ing line, could stop moat of these 1 so-termed semipro clubs, while Kddie V Ainsmith. Joe Judge.

PRICE AND BENTON LAND BIG HONORS The junior and boys* championship tennis tournament which has been on the cards at the Columbia Country Club for the past week ended yester day afternoon, when Price arid Ben ton defeated Ballenger and Bailengcr in the final round for the junior doubles title. The match was an ex ceptionally close and well-playe?l one. going to the Benton-Price team in straight sets. 6?4 and 7?5. As is Indicated by the score, both pairs were very evenly matched. an-J it was only because Price and Ber.ton were better at critical stages, when points meant games, that they ca*re out on top. On several occasions in I the second set. each pair was within a point of the match, but it was not until the twelfth game that Prioe and Benton finally landed it. The Individual as well as team play of all four entrants was goou and long. rapid rallies predominatec; throughout both sets.

French Champion -Is Shin ing Light Among Brave Warriors of Ring Game. Scores of boxes have gone to the front to fight for human liberty. Many have been wounded, while some have made the eupreme sacrifice; yet the holders of championship titles whose feet have trod the soil of Francs In defiance of the Hun can be counted on the Angers of one hand. Considered In the order of titular im portance, George Carpentler, heavy weight champion of Prance and Europe, stand* foremost. He was among the first to answer the bugle call to duty, and he has been in the service of his country ever since. Next is Charles Iedoux. who also sprang to the colors of France at the begin ning of the Hun invasion. LedoJX went Into the trenches and fought in some of the most desperate battles of 1914. Once he was buried under a heap of debris thrown into a trench by a German shell but was rescued. I^edoux has been reported killed, but this report has not been confirmed. If l^edoux^is dead it marks the end of I one of the most patriotic and cour ageous boys that ever drew on a glove. Mike O'Dowd. world's middleweight champion, is the only American title holder who Is now at the front, and if the husky 8t. Paul Celt ever gets into a hand to hand combat with the Huns they will get a vivid impression of the style of battling that Mike employed in his ring contests in America. O'Dowd is with the infantry and probably has been In action by this time. ^ Alexander LafTerty was not a na tional champion, but at one time he held both the bantam and feather weight titles of Scotland. He also hurried to the front, and he gave his life for the grea^ cause. He was wounded in action on April 13 last and died In hospital the day following. From a pugilistic viewpoint Carpen tler made the Kreatest sacrifice of all. Just before the Kaiser decided that the treaty with Belgium was a worth less scrap of paper Carpentler was the most promising pugilistic proposition In the world, with Les Darcy a close second. Carpentler had graduated from the middleweight division ar.d had beaten all the best French heavy weight*. Then the French chamrlon stopped Bombardier Wells in a few rounds and thus made himself the heavyweight champion of Europe. This brought him face to face with a bout with Willard for the world's title, or a contest with Darcey for a rich purse, as the Australian was re ? ported at the time to be contemplating a trip to America. A fortune awaited Carpentler in those two matches, and there "was no limit to the riches the young boxer would have gathered in a tour of the United Statea Plans were practically completed and the French man began making preparations to sail across the Atlantic. Then came the war alarm and Car | pentier Instantly cancelled the visit to | America and gave up all thought of | trying for the world's title, which was his goal. As soon as Germany invaded Belgium Carpentier reported for duty, and was detailed to the flying corrs. He has several times been severely In jured. and it is questionable if the strain on his health will ever again permit him to train for a bout. Dur ing a furlough the French aviator, while recovering from an injury, was deluged with offers to go to America and engage in bouts, but he abso iutely declined to fight for profit while the Germans were on the soil of his country. He relinquished all thought of pugil istic glory or gain while his native land was menaced by a foreign foe, and doubtless France, realizing the sacrifice, will reward him for his patriotism and valor.

The refusal of Mia* Fanny Duraek. Australian premier woman swimming ?tar. to compete against American mermaids, coupled with recent per formances of M;.*s Claire Galligan. of New Rochelle, N. Y., has caused swimming critics to wonder whether Miss Duraek found after coming to America that holding her laurels would not be so easy against the crack of American women natators. Miss Duraek. who holds world rec ords for moat water event* from 100 yards to a mile, voiced her refusal to enter into competition in America when challenged by Miss Olga Dorf ner, of Philadelphia. Mi as Dorfner Is undoubtedly Amer ica'^ greatest water sprinter. Since that time Miss Galligan has lowered her own American record for the mile swim and in so doing cut down her time at all distances from 220 yards to the mile. Miss Duraek came to America a ! few months ago after extensively ad ; vertised. It was expected that she i would tour the country and meet the I best of American mermaids in water i carnivals which were to have been ' given as benefits for war charities. , I At the time of her arrival it was' I not supposed that American mermaids would be able to rob her of many of her laurels, as Miss Duraek has been considered the greatest of women swimmers sinCe her remarkable per formances in the Stockholm Olympic games six years ago. The fact that her Olympic records ?till stand as the fastest In that field OX athletic endeavor proves unques tionably that In her Olympic form Miss Duraek was faster than many of America's aspirants at their best. But It is Questioned If Miss Duraek Is in her Olympic form this year, mainly because of a rather mediocre exhibition she gave on the coast, the only one. by the way. she has made since coming to America. For this reason .critics are inclined to believe: that Miss Duraek Is content to rest on her past laurels without taking chances of losing them In competition here. Steel League After Luderus.
