REGATTA PRELIMINARY
STIFF 'RRE RATSE W2[TE
CAPS ON THE EIVEE,
Long List of Entries for the Potomac
River aces-Practicing Yesterday
-any Spectators This Morning.
With the clearing weather this morning
came a stiff breeze from the northwest, and
the choppy water made the rowing hard in
the qualifying heats of the junior singles bf
the big Potomac regatta. The large num
ber of entries for this event made it neces
sary to row the race in heats, the first two
in each contest to row in the junior singles
this afternoon.
So stiff was the breeze that white caps
appeared, and it was found almost impos
alble to keep the turning buoys In place.
The heats should have been started at 10
o'clock, but It was 11 before the irat one
was started.
President John Hadley Doyle and the race
officials were at the Potomac Boat Club
house as early as 7 o'clock. and everybody
had ,to work hard to get the course prop
erly marked out and the pickets posted.
Crowds assembled at the boat houses,
while a fringe of spectators gathered on
the Aqueduct bridge.
The starters in the first heat were H. S.
Rodearmel of the Vespers of Philadelphia;
Norman A. Garrett of the Arundels, Balti
more; Vin Villion of the First Bohemias of
New York, and J. T. Daly of the Potomacs
of this city.
The start was a good one. Daly getting
away first, with a stroke of thirty-two.
while Garrett was second, hitting it up .
well at thirty-four. Rodearmel started off
with a stroke of twenty-four, and handled
his sculls with confidence.
Villim caught a crab right at the start
and the accident lost him several lengths.
At the quarter Daly was leading by half
a length, ohis stroke having dropped to
twenty-eight, while Rodearmel and Garrett
were doing thirty-two to the minute. At
the half mile there was no change, but
from there on Daly labored badly and
dropped to the rear, Garrett going to the
front. Rodearmel steeder badly, but had
lots of sand and kept close up.
Turning the buoys Garrett was first by
a length, when straightened out, Rodearmel
and Daly turning at about the same time.
The row home was easy for Rodearmel
and Garret, as Daly and Villim were con
tinually crabbing and dropping to the rear.
The leading pair, knowing they would qual
ify. took things easy, Rodearmel getting
over the line first by ten feet, his time be
ing 12.13, while Garrett took 12.16 to finish.
The Second Heat.
The second heat gave indications of being
a fine contest, but while half a mile from
home Varley of the Atalantas broke his
oarlock and pitched head first into the 6wa
ter, Britt finishing first, a quarter of a mile
ahead of Griffith, the West Philadelphia
sculler.
In this heat the contestants were William
Britt of the Potomacs, R. B. Reddington of
the Potomacs, William Varley of the Ata
lantas of New York and G. A. Griffith of
the West Philadelphia Boat Club.
The scullers got away from the line to a
good start, Britt rowing about thirty
strokes, and at the quarter was three
lengths to the good. Varley got off second.
Before reaching the bridge Reddington
found the breeze too much for him and
dropped out. At the turn Britt was first
by half a length, Varley making a good
turn and getting up even soon after
straightened for home. Both men then let
themselves out and raced almost with even
bows under the bridge. Varley's hard work
began to tell, and he was slowly creeping
ahead, when snap went his oarlock and he
pitched into the river. The Judges' boat
was rushed over to the unlucky sculler and
willing hands soon pulled him aboard, noth
ing the worse for his cold bath.
Griffith had almost stopped rowing at one
time on the way home, but he continued to
the end and qualified for the Junior singles.
Britt's time was 11:15. Griffith, a quarter
-mile in rear, was second, his time being
13:15.
The United States torpedo boat Talbot
arrived at the Potomac Boat Club at an
early hour, and attracted a great deal of
attention. The swift boat ran over the
course so that Capt. Young, her command
er, could get his bearings for the big event
this afternoon, when he will carry the
referee.
The downpour of rain yesterday could not
mar the enthusiasm of the many oars
men in town for today's regatta, and from
early morn to dusk singles, doubles, fours
and eights dotted the Potomac river, mak
ing trials over the course. The rain of Sat
urday kept everybody off the river, as the
oarsmen were confident that the weather
would clear, but when Sunday dawned with
the rain still coming down all concluded it
was time to go to work, rain or no rain.
The Potomac and Georgetown University
boat houses were the central point of con
gregation. and these places were crowded
all day. President John Hadley Doyle was
one of the first to arrive at the Potomac
club house, and all day he was kept busy.
President Doyle has worked -diligently for
the past two months on preparations for the
regatta, and he was certainly the happiest
of men when he realised that all his ef
forts were bearing fruit and that one of
the most important regattas ever held in
the east would be rowed on the picturesque
Potomac today. Members of the commit
tees and officials of the regatta were in
constant consultation, as it was the desire
of everybody connected with the big event
that the races start prompfly and be rowed
through with dispatch.

own defeated the Navy by two safeties, or
a score of 4 to 6.
There were 1,500 spectators, Including a
Arge crowd from this city.
The middles showed lack of practice, and
It cannot be remembered when an academy
team made so poor a showing. The line
was utterly unable to stop the ferce plung
ing of the heavy Georgetown backs, who
tore off gains at will through the great
boles made by their line. Navy backs were
slow In charging and once only were able
to make a first down.
Time and again Georgetown came near
scoring, but was held for downs almost on
ier opponent's goal, and twice Morgan, who
Is considered a fair drop-kicker, failed at
asy goals from the field. On the other
hand, Georgetown's scores were pure gifts
)n accidents that would hardly occur again.
The first was on one of two high passes made
by Oak at center, when he threw the ball
aver Belknap's head. The second was due
to a fumble by Belknap back of his own
goal on an attempt to kick. -
On the whole, the middles should be ljgh
ly pleased at the result, as Georgetown
rained at will, and except when kicked the
ball was never in Georgetown's territory.
In the first halt Morgan kicked off for
Georgetown to Navy's 3W-yard lise. Mc
Nair made a slight gain before he was
iowned. The middles tried in vain to rush
and were forced to kick. Belknap dropped
back and Oak threw the ball over his head.
Dwens falling on It. Georgetown advaticed
It nearly to Navy's goal, but lost It on
downs. Navy holding beautifully. The mid
lies tried once to advance, but failed, and
again Capt. Belknap started to kick and
again Oak passed the ball over his head.
Belknap made a desperate effort to carry
the ball on the field, but was thrown be
fore he reached it, thus counting up two
points for Georgetown.
The ball was brought out and kicked off
from the 25-yard line. Buckley, by beau
tiful dodging, ran It back 20 yards, and
from here on it was a procession, Reilly.
Hart and Morgan tearing off yard after
rard until Navy's 20-yard line was reached.
Here Georgetown tried for a field goal and
missed, though she had carried the ball 50
yards without a stop. Again Belknap kick
ed off, and the same series of plays were
:arried out, Morgan falling at goal. Then
the half ended.
Belknap kicked off in the second half.
leorgetown rushed the ball back and kick
ed to Navy's 20-yard line. McNair caught
t and was downed. Belknap made a beau
1lful long kick and Morgan returned It, Bel
cnap replying and gaining on the exchange.
Morgan kicked and Carpenter blocked,
but Reilly ran the ball 25 yards. George
own was stopped and Belknap kicked; Mor
can returned, but McNair fumbled and let
the ball run nearly to his own goat. Here
Belknap fumbled the pass and another safe
ty came to Georgetown. Again the Navy
boys held their opponents and again pre
rented a touchdown.
Navy here made her only gains, and she
iad the ball at the end.
Buckley, Georgetown's quarter, was the
star. Reilly, Hart and Owens also did good
work. For the Navy Carpenter Schlaback,
3trassberger and Rogers excelled.
ST. JOHN'S WON.
Columbian Met Defeat Through Left
Side Being Weak.
St. John's College of Annapolis, on the
home grounds Saturday, defeated Colum
bian University of this city by 10 to 0.
St. John's line, though light, was strong
and aggressive, and the back field looked
like one of the best. Columbian was heavy,
but the left side of the line was Ineffcient
and through It St. John's gained at will.
Columbian University was also much han
ilcapped by continuous offside play. She
was penalized seVen or eight times.
Church kicked off for Columbian to
Brown, St. John's quarter, at his 5-yard
line, and right here occurred the star play
of the game.
Aided by good interference Brown tore
down the field fifty yards. A succession of
rushes by Beatty and Garey carried the ball
farther, but St. John's was compelled to
kick. Columbian kicked back, and St.
John's gave the ball to Beatty, who broke
through the entire Columbian team and ran
about thirty-five yards for a touch down.
In the second half Brown made another
One run. Then Garey and Beatty steadily
dvanced the ball over the line, Beatty scor

Track and Field Games.
The annual track and field games of the
Young Men's Christian Association were
held Saturday afternoon at Association

ise of setting up new records for the asso

GRIFFITH FOR NEW YORE.
American League Club In Big Ketrop
ols to Be Managed by Little Pitcher.
A special from Chicago says that Clark
Griffith, manager of the White Stockings In
1902, wIl leave Chicago and will go to New
York ndxt year to take charge of the new
club which the Johnson forces will place in
Gotham. His successor here will be George
Davis, Comiskey's short stop, who before
he cawne to Chicago was the manager of the
New York team of the National League.
There Is no longer any ,doubt about tihe
Intention of the American League to place
a team in New York. And this team, the
eaders realize, must be one of the strongest
in the organiation to compete successfully
against the one which John McGraw Is
forming.
When the question of grounds for a base
ball park In New York was settled Presi
dient Johnson turned his attention to the
subject~of a manager for the team. To him
there appeared nobody in the business who.
was better able to go to the head of a great
elub asucff as~ New York must have than
Eirlfllth. George Davis, too, had recelved an
offer from New York which was better in
no small way than he was reouiring in Chi
eawHe had a contract wilk Comiskey,
ho ee, covering two years. Hes is bound
to the local magnate for another year.
A story was circulated telling of Davis'.
Intentions of jumping to New York and:
leaving Coskey In the lurch. When this
reached the ears of the -player he denied
that he Nbuld jump, although he admits
that he had received -exceedingly flattering
offers from that club.
"I shall not jump." he said, "although I
admit that I like New York very well. I
have been offered nearly twice as much sal
ary to go there next year."
Griffith baa already planned for the work
which is ahead of him, and' It Is- probable
that he will spend a greater part et the
winter in New York..

Dumbartons. faile to report to his captain,
and Mr. Duf was given the 4uatch by 3 up
by default.
The Columbia team outdiamed the Dum
bartons and every individual match went
to the members of the former club, the fig
ures ranging from 8 to 15 up, the total
score being 72 up in favor of the home
team.
Mr. Britton had the honor of securing the
largest score against him opponent, Mr.
Whiting, while Mr. Carusi came second
with 14 up on Mr. Palmere The dismal
weather kept the fair sex away and also
reduced the gallery to a minimum. An
other handicap was the failure of the elec
trio current on the raitrod to the clut
house, and many turned back in disgust
after going half the distance from the city.
The match between R. B. Looker and Mr.
Davidson was the best of the team match,
the latter winning by only 5 up. Mr.
Looker i the best player amOng the Dum
bartons, and he certainly did his best to up
hold the team, as his opponent is one of
Columbia's best.
The first half of the thirty-six-hole four
some match between the Messrs. Harban
and Lafferty and Horstman of Chevy Chase
was played after the club match had start
ed, and proved an exceptional contest, the
first-named pair winning out by 1 up, the
necessary stroke being made on the last
green. The other eighteen holes will proba
bly be played this afternoon on the Chevy
Chase course, and the gallery *111 certainly
be a large one, as this quartqt of golfers is
about the best in the District;
Neither of the players complained of the
weather and kept plugging alting with a de
termination that ca only displayed by
players of the first class.d when the
last hole was reached -hgior*) were even
between the two pairs. On the last green
Dr. Lee Harban made a- very long putt,
and through this master play, won out by
1 up.
On account of the disagreeable weather
and the two matches that- ere under way
