Maryland Twelve Beat: Penn State * m FRANKLIN FIELD. PHILADEL PHIA. Pa.. April 2S.?Bob LKJendrc. of Georgetown. tried hard and failed to 4rln a place among the stiper athletes who have won all Ave eients of the pentathlon?but he won three and captured the five-party feature of fhe flrst day's sport In the big P?n relay carnival here. |>?Gendre. who had been touted strongly to duplicate the performance of1 Howard Bo-ry. the former great man of Pcui. fractured a pair of carnival records, to win in the javelin throw which he captured with a tosa of 171 feet, and in the 200 meter*, which he ran in :22 1-5. The carnival pentathlon record, formerly held by Barters of Penn. was 168 feet 11 Vs inches, and the 200 meters had been pursuit. Shields passed Connelly fairly on the way to the string, and seemed to have won the race, but officials could not but disqualify him and award the victory to the reluctant Connelly when t^ey heard an explanation of the. spill. Pea a Wlaa Hprlat Medley. The schoolboys in the Interna tional scholastic medley ran a rous ing rkce. won finally by Exeter with a runner from Hamilton Col lege Institute, of Hamilton, Ont., thumping the cinders right at the winner's heels. The time for this mile was 4:44 3-5. Svracuse runners made a bfave scrap lor the college sprint med lay. but Capt.

Te pcntathlong is scored like hummy; the more points you have when its over the worse you stand in the competition and everything you don't win counts against you. Bvrd. of Virginia Poly, wd third with 21*4. I^grry Shields, of Penn State, per formed a spontaneous act of sports manship In the great distance med ley relay which brought a huge mass of humanity up standing with a start of admiration and wrenched j loose the greatest blast of non- I partisan cheering this stadium has heard In many a long season of ath- | let tea. Bounding the last turn but one. Shields was trailing Jim Connelly, the Georgetown anchor man. in a puflishlng mile run Trying to pass the Georgetown athlete?who was all but exhausted, and running on tha intangible stuff that makes game, athletes?Shields accidentally clipped him and sent him spinning alqng the cinders. Shields stopped en,the width of a dime, waited un til ^Connelly regained his feet, and permitted him again to assume the. fame lead that he had held before the fall ere he would resume the taking third in the quarter mile, won by Penn: third in the distance medley, won by Georgetown; sec and fourth in 440-yard hurdles. Hundreds of brave little kids from the Philadelphia grade and high schools ran relays for an hour and a half and threw themselves to dramatic flops in the dust at the. finish line.

That Is the, only way to ^describe what happened out at Hhibe Park todky. At the end five or six thousand per sons, after two hours and fifteen minutes of mental torture and phys ical discomfort, departed for their respective homes with only one definite idea*? that Washington had walloped the Athletics, and that the score was somewhere around 9 to 4. The Mackmen defeated themselves Just as much as did the opposition. There were occasions ? rare, but nevertheless distinct?when they traveled an inning or so in style, but for the most part everything they did was off color. At times it was a burlesque. Harrla la WII4. Once more it was the good-na tured "Slim" Harris who started what he couldn't finish. The six foot-six Texan wa.? wilder than two hostile canaries battling with a hysterical sunfish. He Just couldn't locate the plate. In the first two sessions he walked five men and that he got off with only two runs is attributable to luck and not skill. In the end the threatened blowup had to come and about the sixth inning it did. Two singles, a double and a triple sent him to the show, ers, and Eckert burst upon the view of the startled natives. He did better and only two runs, one in the eighth and one in the ninth were chalked agsist him. Old Donie Bush, a veteran of in numerable diamond campaigns, and Judge, the guv that Connie thought about setting but didn't, were the mainsprings In the Nationals* at tack. which was extremely methodical and so nicely timed that when errors were available to put men in scoring position a hit or two was produced "Dawgonnit? I can't find a pair to match!" A young' fellow walked into a clothing store the other day with a vest in his hand and said: "Have you a pair of trousers to match this?" The salesman searched high and low ?there were several "nearlvs," but ? nothing exactly like it. Then the young fellow said "Dawgonnit, I can't find a pair to match.

Judge collected a brace of doubles which figured in the run setting and walked twice. Now to the reason why the Ath letics didn't score enough runs to win. It was s big one. this reason, fully as big as the reason why the visitors did count so often. In other words. Mo?rridge is virtually the same height as Harris. The difference to day was that he knew wh*t and where he was heaving them. He had a lot of stuff, did the tall left-hander, and he used it profusely.
