Opinions differ among the fans of
tb? national pastime and even the
-Mayers themselves as to the figures
um-" on the contr?ct of Wal
tar Johnson. but one thing i?
certain that the Kansas Cyclone
i* not one bit overpaid as Ms
t/ork of last seaaon shown in
the statistica of the American league
provea. Walter not only led the
circuit with the best average of the
number of game? won and lost and
uh* least number of earned runs
?cored off hi? delivery, but he hung uf
an unique record in the number of
extra contest? which he was com
pelled to labor.
80 unusual was the work of Walter
m these extra session battles that
special mention of the fact only proves
the btg Kana?n is far from being
through. Although many of the fans
have been whispering to one another
that the ""?mokeball" king I? on the
downward grade, there'? nothing in

ao-md fact? to uphold these assertion?.

DISTRICT GOLF
BODY TO MEET
Local Association Will De
cide Tourney Questions
at Commercial Club.
I The annual meeting of the District
I of Columbia Golf Association, to be
', held at the Commercial <1ub tonight,
I will complete the local golf program
I for 1919. The Middle Atlantic Golf
1 Association met Saturday evening at
? which time tournament dates for
practically all of the local club? were
' announced.
; At tonight's meeting, the date and
i form of pity of the Di.trlct tltl?
I events for both men and women will
' be announced, plans for the ?Star cup
? event for women, and posatbly for a
I local professional tourney, will also
| be discussed and definite plan? made.
It la understood that the men's ti
tular clash will be aeslgncd to the
? Chevy Chase Club but there I? likely
to be considerable discussion as to
? the form of play. Each year thi?
t question come? up and the association
j ha? now tried out both the medal and
1 the match play .with about a flfty
j fifty break a? regards to popularity.
j In the past, thl? event has been de
? cided in the spring but as the open
I ing season's program is pretty well
filled up with events, it is likely that
1 the 1919 one will be held over for the
| fall.
I This year's meeting should be of
unusual Interest for the reason that
j all events were called off last year,
I the war is now over and players who
hav been forced to forsake the game
for this reason are ju?t "itching" to
1 get back at the game and make up

reminded him that he had agreed in ?

J.AMES BODEiVS PENROSE
QUEEN OF TWO-YEAR-OLDS
Lilliputian of Turf Flung? Up Thirteen Vic
tories in 1918?Was Never Unplaced in
Sixteen Starts?Quite a Coquette.
By W. C. VREELAND.
Within the sheltering gates of the
old Oravesend track, in No. 3 stable.
i ?tanda the flne?t little piece of
feminine horseflesh in America-Pen
i Rose. Lilliputian queen of the turf.
? In the polo pony class, and not big
' enough to classify as a galloway, this
! litttle daughter of Sweep? Hanrose
I was the racing sensation of the 1918
season. In ?pite of her ?mall ?lie. a
serious handicap to a thoroughbred.
Pen Rose topped the list of two-year
old winner? with thirteen victorie?.
three second? and one third place to
her credit She started seventeen
i times and never was unplaced?the
?best record made by any horse, filly
or colt last year.
I To know Pen Rose thoroughly you
must meet her In her stall. It ta
there her fine points stand forth and
shine like a diamond over ipaste. Only
a filly, you say. Ah. but euch a filly!
If a filly can be classified as a dirt,
or coquette, then Pen Rose Is that?
and more. She ha? so many little
tricks of manner, so many playful
ways that she completely Wins your
affection?and affection that Is deep
I and lasting. For once seen, Pen Rose
I is not soon forgotten.
I It was a dreary day for a visit to
a queen. As if In sympathy for the
person who paid a visit to GravesendJ
the heaven? wept. Gravosend! What
a name! B-u-r-r. it gave one the
creeps to think of it. Drip. drip,
drip. The raindrops fell with the
rhythm of the Dead March from
"Saul." "Ia Miserere" was in the
atmosphere. Even the stable loooked
woe>begone and out of sorts. Each
board leaned upon the other as if
?eeeklng comfort and support. Drip,
drip, drip. The weather wa? blue and
the visitor's feeling? were in close
touch with the indigo hue when
Clear and eweet a voice was heard
singing "Where the Rhrer Shannon
Flows"! It was an Irish voice, the
kind that give? tongue to the bub
bling ?pringg In a heart of ?unshlhe.
As though by magic, all that wa?
drab and dull and gray seemed to
take wing?. The rain and the mud
were forgotten. The song wafted
through the open spaces between the
board.? that act as a wind shield to
the straw ride and stalls of No. .1
stable?the home of Pen Rose. If
you were to Inquire for No. 3 stable,
like as not the man you asked, would
reply: "No. 3 stable?oh. you mean
Irish Row!" And then he would tell
you it was located Just inside the gate
that opens on Avenue U.
Irish Row! James Boden, who
trains the seventeen thoroughbreds m
that stable. I? proud of the Irish blood
that runs through his veins. He is of
Irish descent, a Canadian by birth and
an American by choice and selection.
That is a triangle of quality that no
man can beat. But Bodcn has an
Irishman's love for those that come
from Emerald Isle and the men he
hires for stable lords must sing "The
Wearing of the Green" with the right
twist to the "chune."? or divll-a-bit
can they work in Irish Row.
"I know you have ?everal fine
horse?. Jim," said the writer, "but
Pen Rose is nearest mo heart (fall
ing easily into the Irish vernacular),
and I'd like to give her the once
over, while me thought? are tender
w-ith the memory of the song."
As In reply to the request, a
little brown head, with twinkling
eyes full of mischief, poked its way
through the space formed by the
upper hfllf of the stall door and a
big staple that kept the door ajar
so as to provide good ventilation
for the big box room. Before you
could say, **Helgh-ho. my lady."
the head was Jerked back again.
This trick was repeated thrice be
fore the door was opened. It was)
Miss Pen Rose's greeting.
There she stood. "Queen of the
Midgets." the Delilah that cut away
the strength end speed from many
an equine Samson last year. She
poked her nose Into the visitor's
hand and rubbed his coat, hunting
for lumps of sugar in the pock
ets. Then she backed to the fsj* end
of the stall like a spoiled child
who taad a spell of the sulk? be
cause ?he had not received a tidbit
of her fancy. But her sulky mood
was but a pretense for ?he came
back to the door again anxious to
hove her head stroked.
A coquette? A flirt? Who shall say?
But one thing is certain, she prefers
the company of men to that of women.
She has a decided antipathy to the
gentle ?ex. When women pay her a
visit she fairly snubs them. She never
rubs her head against them or hunts
for sugar. Frequently she turns her
hack on them, pokes her hend in a
far corner of her stall and sulks.
Very often she curl? up In the straw
and lies down. But with the men?
Oh. boys! She is the sugar kid. With
every little playful trick she shows
that she likes their company.
"She can do everything except talk."
said Boden, as she was led out to the
straw ride for a "close up" Inspection.
As race horse? go. Pen Rose, in sise,
i? about knee high to a grasshopper
when compared with other thorough
breds. But when looked at "head on"
she spelled perfection of equine out
line. Every part of her was balanced
to *n ounce. In that inspection she
personified might In miniature.
In looking back on th? record of
Pen Rose last year the bald fact that
she won thirteen races?a record for
the season by a 2-year-old-and *?**
beaten four times, but never unplaced,
fails to te|| the full history of her
performances. That Indefinite thin?
called "luck of racing," which more
often should be called "accidents" was
directly responsible for her four de
feats. Each time she was beaten ?he
waa kicked at the post. The kicks
landed on her \ega just a second or
two before the start. The pain shocked
her for a time and checked her sud
den headlong get-away from the bar
rier. But the stinging pain waa un
able to break her stout little heart.
and she tried with every ounce of vital
! force in her body to get home In
front Tn this she was living up to
; the inheritance of a long line of thor
oughbred progenitors of speed?to gei
down In front, first. Two of her
wounds would have been serious had
she been kicked lower on the leg. She
just escaped being "ham.-'trung" twice.
and still shows the marks of the rac
ing plate where it landed on her hock.
No blue bird?the gentle harbinger
e>f spring- longs for spring time near
ly ae much as Pen Rose. As the days
lengthen and grrrw warmer she fairly
quiver? with anticipation of the con
tests to come. For he It known that
Pep Rose loves to race. She Is as
eager to match her speed against her
rivals as any boy to drive his William
kgoat against the butcher hoy's pony.
For a little miss she has a very
long stride, but her action is so quick
and so perfect that many trainers fail
to realize this important feature of a
horse's speed. When she meets a big
horse, it is worth a long Journey Just
to watch her range alongside her btg
opponent and fight with him for the
coveted lead. With cars pinned back
and head poked forward as though
she wished the judges would see it
first, she placea every ounce of speed
Jn her leg? to reach the winning goal.
And when her number Is hung out
first, she seems to know it for she re
turns to the scales falrty dancing and
plants herself in the circle In front
of the judges with a sort of "well, I
did it. boys" shake of the head.
If you can call a filly a aprite, then
Pen Rose ?s one. She walks with
the grace of a dancing nymph. Her
legs look too frail to carry her. Al
though she has wintered well, she
does not weigh more than *!70 pounds
?lees than a good-sized yearling. She
is too small to carry big weight, but
nevertheless won last year wtih 122
pounds up.
What she will do this year Is a
matter of conjecture. Some trainers
profess to ?believe that ahe will be a
factor only In the daah races. But
other small horses, Ben Brush and
Broomstick, for instance fooled train
ers by winning races over a distance
of ground. Pen Ro.se is a filly and
fillies, as a rule, when small, fall to
race well over a long route. But If
she should levelop into the quality of
a Lady Amelia, who would dare to
say that she was a failure?

SCHOOL BOYS
BOOM TENNIS
Central, Technical and
Western Have Veteran
Players for Teams.
Tennis in the high schools is sure
to boom, now that the weather Is be
ginning to permit. Tenni.?, will un
doubtedly get an early stsrt for a?
yet the weather has been decidedly
favorable and preparations for the
coming tennis season ere now in pro
gres? ?? to calling out candidateti and
arranging games with outside teams.
Central High in previous years has
displayed excellent tennis ability and
with a goodly number of veterans on
the squad they should not come fax
from winning the championship this
year. Shorty Price, captain of the
teams thi? year who won the inter
in?las tic singles championship has
been out of school for a pood while
and little tennis In the school has
been promoted. With his return the
tennis question that seems to pene
trate every student who is familiar
with the game, will get an early start.
Besides nearly all the veterans from
last year arc back, and new ones
now attending the school who are
fully proficient in this sport.
The material that is now attend
ing Central is the best that could!
be wanted and the school looks as if
another championship is awaiting
them. Central has in Conklin. Price,
Knopp, O'Brien. Chlldress, Fowler.
Beale. Hopkins, Philips, Dodge and
Smith some expert ability on the.
court.
Mechanical High is not slow on
this question. For they have it on
Central In getting ?an early start, j
They have already called candidates
and over fifty responded to the call. ;
Coach Apple, of the Manual Train-!
ere, stated that he expected to give,
Central High one of the hardest
rubs In this game than ever before.
In former years at Tech very little
has been thought of tennis. But
recently with Apple at the post
there has ben aroused in the school
what we might call a school tennis
spirit. The prominent candidat-a
are. Keleher. Perry. Knapp. Mooney.
Smith. Shanks and Kin?. These
boys are veteran tennis players and
know the in? and outs of the game.
Western High you might say is a
ranking scholastic tennis team. West
ern was the only team last year that
gave the Blue and White any < ^n>[-et -
tion at all. They fought hard and
nearly all the old material is back
with them. Coach Morse takes con
siderable interest in tennis. He de
votes Just as much of his time to
tennis as any other branch of sport.
Last year he developed a wonderful
team out of raw material W th Frank
Taylor, their leading man last year,
and Everett Burke they will prob
ably show up well In the scholastic
series this season.
Eastern High and Business have not '
put forth as good a team as Is pos
sible for them to do so. The school
does not realize that tennis should be
.-authorized just as much as any other
sport. It Is a minor consideration
with the stenographers. The same
holds good with Eastern High.
GONZAGABASKETERS

BILLY GARTH'S

The elder Garth does not expect to

before the Pimlico meeting begin? on
May 1. to run through the 17th. But
so promising are the horeee of various
ages Garth will campaign at Pimlico

Captain Parr is coming back to
the races big and strong and sound.
Big Improvement is looked for in
Warlock, Lr Marsouin, Bughouse,
Royal Arch and Plancy. It Is a bit
difficult to be picking as early as
this which of these fencers will
start In the Green Spring Valley, but
Captain Parr and Le Marsouin look
like safe guesses.

The editor, nevertheless, man
ages to circulate "The American
Sentinel" through the wild and cx
ta-nslve zone of occupation, by rein
deer ?ledge, where there I? no rail
way, and by courier when there ?re
no reindeer. I ?m able to give ex

commanderin-chief of the Ameri

the occasion cf the first appearance
