March ?.?Any officer or enlisted roan who served in the ?Hied military forces between Au gust 4. 19H. and November 11. 1918. is eligible to compete in the Inter ?II?tu (?ame? lo be held in Paris n? . June, according to cable ad Vftcfjfl from Gen. Pershing to the Aim; ?"i,- Athletic Union yesterday. Tl in*"*saee emphasised the fact that eligibility applied equally to men mm in service and thoa? dis charged. '??ri. Pershing thanked the union for itv* offer of co-operation in the tour? a ment and asked its assistance in disseminating information re garding the event to potential par ticipants. ?secretary Rubien stated that the a???? -would begin preparations Im mediately to co-operate with the military offl<*!aU in developing of th?? American end of the contests. Kffort? will be made to secure a comprehensive idea of the program of events and with thi* as a basis every \thl?Uc club and training camp will be requested to furnish the names of *u*th fligibl-f athletes as may warrant sp^cini instru?-tion und training. ?Ill the ?. ?. G. has no funds available for the transporting of a team of athletes to France, it Is be |ievc?| that there will be no difficulty in securing, by popular subscription or other methods, ? sum sufficient to pre pare the best of available material. esp* cially if the men could be taken to France on a transport. Ttilffe are a number of highclasa per formers still with the American forcee abroad and these, augmented by those who might be selected from the eli eibies now in this country, would .mdoubtealy form a team which could hold fis own against the lead ing Kuropean combinations. GOLF PROGRAM BEING MADE OUT FOR YEAR Dr. Walter S. liar ban. chairman of the green committee of the Colum bia Country Club, returned from Palm Beach last week and is now making out the club's golf program for thf year. Nothing definite has been done as yet. however, as the doctor wants to call a meeting of bis committee and at the present time is unable to "scare up" a quorum One of the met important ques tions to be taken tip by the green committee is that which relates to the acceptance of the Middle At lantic Association's championship tournament which was tentatively assigned Columbia on June 3. ? and 7. On account of Dr, Harban's ab MMC th??? delegate? from Columbia riid not feel that they were author ized to absolu tel y accept the am -isrnmcnt of this sectional titular event. As a matter of fact, there w hardly a rhance that Columbia ?will decline to accept and the green committee's action will probably be ?er?! y the formal one of saying MATTY WARMING UP AGAIN FOR GIANTS Gainesville. Flat. March ?.?While John McGraw weald make no predic tions it is likely that Christy Mathew ?on. once peerless of pitchers, will not be an Inactive coach w(th the Giants thi? season, hut rather a regular pitcher and poaalbly one with a win ning record. Matty tried out his well -"?r-iaoned eoupbone yesterday, and while he did not exert himself at any time he possessed such remarkable ? ontrol and got by the labor so easily he believes maybe there le a lot of strength In his right arra yet. It has been three years since Matty haa made any serious effort to pitch. He did not take the box once last >ear. and the season before he tried onlv one game early In the year and then gave It up aa a bad job. He thinks that the long reet has strength ened hia arm and that with proper noratas; It can be brought back Into ?omathing like old-time condition. Heril?

FOXY GRIFF PLAYS MILAN - MATCH GAME OF "TaALK" GOLF The Pilot Outguessed the Fielder in This Nine-hole Battle by 2 Up and ? to Go. By JOHN A. DUGAN. North Augusta, S. C, March 30.?When is match play match play, and when medal play medal play? is the question being asked on all sides by Clark Griffith's tribe of athletes, camped over in the hills of South Carolina, in reference to the ancient and honorable game oi golf. Match play proved today to be an act of outtalking and outnerving your opponent in the o-hole match staged this morning ', between the Old Fox and Clyde Milan, the Tennessee Flyer, as the | silver-haired leader of the Nationals both outtalked and outnervrd Milan in landing the battle by ? op and 1 to go. At medal play for the eight holes which were traveled Foxy Griff managed to squeeze in one stroke better than the fleet-footed center fielder. But the question is not thoroughly settled in the minds of many of the large gallery of players who hiked it over the Hampton terrace course, as Milan looked equally as good, at driving and putting the little ball, as tHe Old Fox. Each claimed to have never played before, and if it is not telling any tales out of school, it appears that each was fibbing, although their medal score at a par 40 was Griffith, 71, and Milan, 72. ! , ti Griffith's driving throughout the match waa easily the feature, as he made a 207-yard stroke on the number two hole, which placed him on the green in ftve, but considering the green was 568 yards from the tee-off. and is par five, and that Griff halved the match with ?even bring back the ar? gument that some one was pulling "KelUe'ten." A twenty-eight-foot put on the fifth green, which is par five, which Milan made In six, was the best work demonstrated by the fleet-footed out fielder. Clyde easily had the breaks of the game as be twice drove into the rough only to recover by driving against the tall pine trees and bound In? off into the fairway. Griff was caught in th? bunker on the seven hole which Milan landed after an up hill battle. Most of the playera tn the squad followed the golfers over tbe course. Walter Johnson and Kddie Hovlik. acting as caddies for Milan, while Shannon and Gharrtty were the cad dies for the winning player. "Fore" is an old term In golf. mAnlng to keep all head? up and watch for the come through,, but one of the player? kicked like a wild mule when the referee desired to clear the way by shouting fore. This player Insisted that hla opponent had seven strokes Instead of four. He was immediately enlightened on some golf etiquette. The medal scores, with par for each of the holes, follows: 1 I t 4 I U I I T. Par . j ? 4 5 4 4 5 4 4?40 Griffith .12 ? 8 8 8 8 12 8 ??71 ?Milan .11 7 9 S 6 9 13 9 ??72 This golf match was easily the big gest thing that happened during thia day of rest. Most of the athlete?? who did not follow the golfing phenoms during the rounds in the morning took long walRs tn the afternoon. The day lof rest was a welcome, one. as the grind of the pa-.t two weeks has the ] pitcher^ in great, shape, while the oth | er players are fast rounding into | form. The Interclub games will get I under way for fair tomorrow, aa the j Old Fox has prescribed a morning j and evening game for each day until the squad breaks camp on Thursday. April 10, for the barnstorming trip North. Philip T. Philpot. the University of Georgia pitcher, will no doubt be j given the once over by the Old Fox himself next week, as Griffith is now arranging for this southpaw to visit here this week so as to take, a slant at him.I Frank Eller will no doubt wind up with the Binghamton club, aa the Old Fox yesterday got in touch with Frank Schulte In an attempt ? to place the South Carolinian in the International for a season of development. Scouts from the ? Southern League are expected to visit camp next week to look over the youngsters, as Griffith admitted today that he has heard from qWte a few Southern league managers. BUTWELL RECOVES JOCKEY'S LICENSE New York. March 30.?Jimmy But well, the noted Jockey who rode the thoroughbreds belonging to Major August Belmont for several years, was among the jockeys who received a license at the meeting of the stew ards of the Jockey Club la-st Thurs day.

He Is determined to prove that he is ?till the boss of the 122-pound division. The snappy, peppery title-holder of Celtic origin has selected Philadelphia a*s the best city to begin his e'tmlnation of the horde of challengers. KUbane believes If he can get past the candi dates who will be selected to face him In this city he will have thorough ly proven his class. Both the cham pion and his manager. Jimmy Dunn, rate Phlladephia fight fans as the most critical In America. "Please them,'* says the duo. "and you need have no fear of getting past In every city In this country." KUbauie's determination that he is not a has-been and that his flrst ef fort to "come back" was labeled a failure was born of the caustic criti cism which was hurted at him. Frankie Brown was schooled and pointed for that one bout. He had strength, vigor, and excellent judgment of dis tance arid had been In real practice In fact, to use ring vernacular, he was "turned up*' for that one con test. The result is now history.

Manager Garrison has been after the match ever since Fleming won over Turner two weeks ago and now: that he hits finally matched the men the fans will have their wish granted aa they have made numerous re quests to see th two battle it out. Mad Cody claims the middle-weight title by vlrtul of his win over Turner and has ins.sted that the belt be at stake in Tuesday night's match and' has posted a forfeit against the mid- ' die-weight trophy. The bout will no doubt be fast from the start aa both ' men hfcve a few scores to settle.

Baltimore, March 20.?The 1919 racing season for Maryland and the East will start oflt Tuesday at Bowie under the most flattering auspices. Unquestionably the sport uf kings and the thoroughbred have com? Into a higher standing in the public esteem since the war has demon-1 strated that they are a most Im portant factor in rounding out th* nation's system of defense. What the thoroughbred did on th? plains of France and In Flanders Holds will not t*oon bo forgotten. All the great nations are now devising ways and moans to increase the sup ply and raise tho standard of ?tielr thoroughbred horses. Itoci ng this season la Kngland and France haa been revived and dates have been allotted equaling those of ante bellum days. In this country, too, reports from ell sections Indicate that the sport will be In greater favor than ever and that the Mary land. Kentucky and New York tracks are destined to be favored with a most brilliant season. . Bowie, which opens the ball. Is es pecially fortunate this year In the fact that, the open winter has per mitted the horses trained In this lati? tude to work nearly every day and to be ?put Into shape for an early opening; indeed In matter of condi tion they will bo found fully aa fit as the nags that have been racing all winter In the South. Plenty of good racing timber is now stabled at the Southern Maryland track and Ihert* will be no lack of flrst-clasi material to make up the daily pro grams. Aa usual, there is a deep interest in the 2-year-olds, end Iiowie will have this spring an unusually fine bunch of youngsters. Albert Simons. ? Lewis Garth. Max Smart, R. F. Car man. W. P. Burch. Gen. Buchanan. Ernest Hall. Nat Beai and AI Wes ten have some very promising trick? In their stalls and tbe 2-year-old contests are liable to be among the moat notable of the meeting. Albert Simons, who brought his whole string to Bowie yesterday, thinks that he has a first mortgage on the baby events and expects to win the opening event on the first day. Brer Simons has good grounds for his faith. He Is training for Harry Payne WTiitney. who sends nothing but the best to the race?. Two of the Simons Allies have shown great work at Benning?thirty-six away from the barrier?and these will probably bear the Whitney colors In the opening race. He haa a colt better than these, but this one will probably bo reserved for later on. Lewis Garth also thinks he haa a royal chance with a colt by Theo Cook and another by Sea King. The colt by Theo Cook Is said to be the one on which the Garth family pins its hopes. Nat Beal's 2-year-olds have been showing up finely at Bowie, and they may make It Interesting for the Henning contingent. He has two Allies by Celt that have worked three-eighths from th? barrier In ..111. and they will probably be en tered the first day. Al Wcston. too. has a Ally which he thinks well of and with which he expects to get a piece of the money. The 3-year olds all over the country are a flne lot this year and those at Bowie are no exception, averaging much better than usual. The track, with no more rainfall, will be in splendid condition on the opening day and fast work may be looked for. Already some good moves have been shown over it. Mahot\ey and Wisest Fool have worked flve-eiEhths in 1.02: Kewessa. Billy Oliver's old bread-win ner. Bve-elghths in 1.0S 2-5: J. P.

Be tween now and the opening day some very fast work may be loked for. The entire list for Tuesday's feature event, the League handicap, with $1.0(? added, for 3-year-olds and upwards, at seven furlongs, follows: Bolster. 109: Bondage. 115: Broom Peddler. 104: Cobalt T.ass. 102: rharlie Leydecker.

Davis horses, has shipped to Pimlico. where they will be titled for the crose-country racing. The Decision, once the pride of the stable, has broken flown and his use fulness as a racer has passed. He will be sent to the farm to spemi his remaining days. Kilbane to Meet Mealy. Johnny Mealy wil be given the teat of his long and victorious career Monday night when he hooks up with Johnny KUbane. feather-weight champion, in the final bout at the Olympia. Mealy is Just now boxing in great shape. His kick Is working In good form, therefore the local 1ad t|*ects to give Kilbane a hard setto should he not wrln the decision. Frankie Clark, of thia city, is staged to try his come-back with Freddie Reese. New York's popular feather-weight.

Flying across the Atlantic is all right if you get across, but the ocean is a darned poor lawn to light on. War statuary. The diplomats ought to step out in the field and give the sculp tors their whacks at the war. No scuffle is a success unless the mallet chauffeurs chisel the score out in rock. Make 'em do it sober. Congress ought to toss off a law putting the crimpers on war sculptors until the nation goes dryer than a stuffed hoot owl. It's all right for an artist rock buster to ba loaded with bevo and other sorrows, but we don't want any granite mangier io chop out a twin -to Barnard's Lincoln. One marble skeleton in a family is enough, especially when it'i too big to go into a closet. If j'ggety jigged chisel jobbers have got to get some sculpting out of their system?., make 'em sign the pledge. Here's some ideas for 'em : Alien enemy: Heroic figure of fat alien cheering because he isn't allowed within 100 yards of water. Bomb in each pocket and one behind each ear. Jaw should be fractured to show his perfect broken English. Profiteer: Life-sized statue of clothing contractor about the sire of an anaemic roach. Wearing one of his own raincoats. Statue must be on rollers so that it can be taken in on rainy days. --T'ood baron: Patriotic American counting out eleven eggs to the dozen. He is giving a nice cool sip of sand to a thirsty working man. Shoe contractor: Limestone representation of genial hero cheering the troops as they march away to wear out his shoes. Kneeling figure of soldier being kicked by hero who is wearing good shoes tied with red, white and blue laces. Troops have blisters on feet. Hero has blisters on bank account. The clown prince: Euestrian group of saphead heir astride of champagne bottle. He is picking his teeth in public and has just had five long-distance tele phone wires shot out from under him while leading a charge. The. home guard: Beautiful group standing on mezzanine floor of CentTal Park swan boat. Leader is looking toward distant brewery in attitude of Columbus discovering America will soon be dry. r.ott mit uns: German citizen full of splinters from wooden underwear. He is cheering a parade of the Kaiser and hir? shadow. Pinned on the Kaiser's chest is a set of false teeth stolen from an old Belgian cripple. The shadow isn't decorated. Bullsheviki triumphant: Russian Red lurking in the rear of his own whiskers. He is throwing a bomb at a dish of spaghetti because it won't stay on his knife.

When the question wa? first asked, upon Cobb'? return from France, the reply of the fandom was in affirm ative, despite the Georgia Peach's declaration that he "was not so sure about It" But now with the Tigers making ready to quit the training grounds at Macon, where Cobb 1? con?picuou? by hi? absence, the matter is not being disposed of ?o lightly. The Detroit ?tar reiterated here to day he has not decided whether he will affix hi? signature to the con tract sent him in January and that the chief reason Is that he has not made up his mind whether he will play ball at all this season.
