VERY POOR TALENT
Shown in Sprints in Pennsyl vania Meet. McCURDY LOOKS GOOD Penn Miler May Develop Into Great Distance Bunner?Other Gossip. BY EDWARD R. BUSHNELL. ?'olloge men were deeply interested in the University of Pennsylvania's annual relay carnival because of tlie bearing1 it had upon the coming intercollegiate ??Championships. For tliis purpose the per formances must he reviewed in two Classes. Not all of the eastern institu tions were represented, Cornell being the fliost notable exception, though the west ern colleges were a little better repre sented. Not only were the college men interested because of their coming cham pionship meet, but the members of the American Olympic committee, many of ti ;iom were there as officials, kept their eyes open for the discovery of point * inning talent for this year* American Olympic team. The surprise of the meet from the standpoint of the eastern <ollege men was the showing of liie 1'niversity of Pennsylvania. though some of the en thusiastic supporters of the Quaker team undoubtedly exaggerated the importance i> Pennsylvania's victories. It was thought before tlie meet started that the Quakers had more than an even ciiance to defeat Princeton in the two Oide relay, but no ?>ne was sanguine enough to predict victory for Pennsyl vania over Michigan in the four-mile event. There is no doubt whatsoever that Cornell could have won the four snile relay, and if the Ithacans had con centrated their best men in the two mile event they would have had prob ? bly an even chance with Pennsylvania for it. As a matter of fact these two races brought to light but one possible p:>!nt Winner about whom the college men did not know in advance. This man was Mct'urdy, who ran such a sensational race in the last relay of the four-mile ?vent. It was known long ago that Pennsyl vania had two unusually good half milers, both of whom are likely to score In the coming championships. There are Bodley. whose splendid running won the two-mile relay from Princeton, and Fos ter. who. on account of his sprinting abil ity, was used in the one-mile relay. In addition to Bodley and Foster there was some good running by Levering, but otherwise the Quakers did not show any men who gave promise of doing better than l..V\ and it is not likely that any thing slower than this will even score June l. The running of McCurdy is likely to cause some uneasiness among rival coaches. In spite of tiie fact that the track was an inch deep in mud and water and the men had to run far from the pole. McCurdy s time was 4.1!t?. This means that after he has had time to round into shape he will be able to run this distance in time very olese to The ei antes are that Trainer Murphy will p:it hini in tiie two-mile race, where he w ill ha\e a better opportunity to score. A surprise of the opposite nature was the rather mediocre showing of Ilanivan of Michigan, w ho last year ran second to Jones when lie ran his world record mile. A vf-ar aso Hai.ivan ran the distance iii 4.is. This year at the relays lie could not go faster than -?.:io. n jS true that be has been suffering with an illness this winter and may yet return to bis 1911 form. Haimbaugh. who ran tiie last re lay for Michigan, is a two miler and will Probably be trained exclusively for that event Of the other distance runners Princeton alone "shon-fl a man with a promise of scoring at the intercollegiates. He was Hays, who ran tlie Inst relay of the two n.ile event and finished on almost even Terms with Bodley. Sawyer, who also ran on this team, is a quarter miler and will probably try for this event alone. The one-mile event demonstrated that Reidpath of Syracuse has not suffered any ill effects from the breakdown he suffered a year ago. It will be remem bered that Reidpath won the quarter mile in 1010 in 49** seconds. I.ast year he was overworked by being made to run the 1"? and I'Jo yard dashes in addition to the quarter mile. As might have been expected, he broke down and was unable to compete at the intercollegiate meet, l^ast week he started in second place on the last relay, and overhauled Saunders af Illinois, after which he finished with a ead of three yards in the very good time of :*> seconds. From this time forth Reidpath is likely to be the favorite for the quarter mile. In the special and field event there were no surprises worthy the name. The field in the UNWyard dash was without ioubt the poorest that ever contested in these games. This, of course, may be due to t'ie fact t'iat of the men who scored 1 *11 of the points in the !<*? and irjn yard Jas: es last year at the I. C. A. A. A. A. same? only one is now in college. He a Thomas, who was fourth in the luu-vard lasii. and he likewise was the winner of he event last week. He did only 10a5 ?econds. and at that had a hard time to lest out Patterson, the Pennsylvania "reshman. Marshall of Pennsylvania was ?ep: out of the event because of the bad neather conditions, though he had not lone anything this year to show that he ihotild have been a favorite over Thomas. Ml of this means that the 100-yard will >e an open event this year, and unless Joine new star is developed within the iext few weeks tlie standard in the ?prints will be very greatly lowered.. The Western Situation. The middle west was quite as we|j rep ?esented * with Its be-t athletes as the ?ast. Of them all. probably the Iniver ?ity of Illinois made slightly the best ?howing. This team finished second In he one-mile relay, furnish**! tiie second nan jn the pole vault with Murphy, and Jltewlse "he second man in the hurdle ?ace in < ase. Illinois has an unusually 5ood collection of quarter milers, a hur ller who is likely to reverse positions *'hen he next meets Nicholson of Mis ?ouri. and an unusually hi^h-class pole ?"aulter. Notre Dame scored more heav Jy than Illinois, but did not have the tame sort of competition an the latter. Illbrook of this institution won the shot >ut and the di?cus throw, while Wasson. he only other representative, was second n the broad jump. Western College Detectives. Just how bad-haF been the situation in iummer base !>all among the middle west ern colleges is indicated by the action of itudents in the different universities dei:t h it:g about to find evidence of pro fessionalism against the representatives >f otl.er colleges. When the conference issociation at Its last meetfng determined o strictly enforce the rule concerning iummer base ball there was developed a >ar in several quarters that one or two nstltutlors might take advantage of its 'lvalf by playing men who were not Mrictly eligible. This suspicion of all ?ivals led to the organization of the spy ng system. In a number of cases nffi lavits were made by students to the ?ffect that members of rival base ball earns had to their knowledge accepted noney for service* on semi-professional earns Nearly every university in the issociation has been receiving evidence >f this sort gathered by the student de ective* of other universities. The result -las been to increase the feeling of hos :llity between the members of the asso ciation, and it has not resulted in any rood. The I'niversit.v of Chicago, for instance, ?as refused to take any notice of the evi Ien< e submitted concerning two of its ?layers by the students of another ni)i lersity. The Chicago men resent this ?nterferencw and insist that thev are ca pable of determining the eligibility of heir own players without outside assist ing. .As a result there is not likely to >e an\ restoration of harmony in this as sociation, but' the chances are that this ittitude will stir up such hitter feeling Jiat the conference association inav lose *uc or two additional members iu the near future. It would seem that the ex perience of the conference in the loM of Michigan-Could be reviewed with profit at this time. Jones Vs. Sheppard. There has always been more or less rivalry between the club and college ath letes. Until the 1'JOS games there was really no comparison betwrtn the strength of the club and college men. The latter were far superior. Now, however, the two elements are more nearly on wen terms, and it is a question which group will contribute the more strength to the 1912 Olympic team. In connection with this there has arisen a keen discussion as to the respective merits of John Paul Jones of Cornell and Me'vln Sheppard of the Irish-Ameri can Athletic Club. Sheppard himself is j reported to have said that he believes he can defeat Jones in both the half and j the mile, though he is not so sure of victory in th*> latter event. The majority of college men contend that Jones can beat Sheppard over any distance they wish to run. A comparison of the two men's records shows that Sheppard has run the half mile In 1.3ft Jones' best time for this distance is 1.54 4-5. Shep pard has run the mile in 4.1!*. while Jones has a mark of 4.15 2-5 seconds, which is now th?* world record. The writer is inclined to the belief that if the two men show their 1J?11 form this year Jones will prove himself the master of Sheppard in either distance. Any one who saw Jones perform at Cambridge la.st year knows that he could have run the mile considerably faster than he did. in fact, lie must have been able to go the distance in 4:12 or better. He j ran a winning race throughout and only mad** his effort on the last quarter. He could have reached the three-quarter mat k in five seconds quicker time than he did. anil still have run the las( quar ter in less than a minute. Sheppard has never shown anything like the ability to run in such time. As to tlit' half mile, Jones did not have an opportunity to show what he could <!o. ?? hen he made his new inter collegiate record of 1.54 4-5 for the Nso yards he had made his world-record mile not more than forty-five minutes before. In this event he had very little of the sort of competition which Paull ami Hanlvan save him in the mile. If the j two races had been reversed thei e (s no doubt tha: Jones could have made a new world record in the half mile as well as in the mile. In comparing tlie two men k must l>e remembered that Sheppard is at least eight years older than Jones. Sheppard's career has been truly remarkable in the way lie has held on to his speed. A good many champions have come and gone during Sheppard's reign. Predictions have been freely made since 190S that each year would see his eclipse, but lie has always come back, and last year was apparently as strong as ever l.ast year was Jones' first effort in intercol legiate athletics. He absolutely refused to run for any athletic club, and has ! never appealed in any competition ex cept carrying the colors of Cornell. Jones takes exceptional care of himself and ought to improve this year. If Jones competes in the official try-out at Boston June # this will be the first meeting between liim and Sheppard. It is likely though that, since both men will be sure of places on the team, if they compete one will be entered in tile half mile and tiie other in the mile. This would prevent a meeting between them beiore they run at Stockholm. As the 1'nfted Siates will wish to get as many points as possible, it is likely that both will run the and the 1,500 meters as well. That being the case, the relative superiority of the two will not be decided for some time. INTERESTING GOLF NOTES FROM THE LOCAL CLUB^ Morven Thompson, president of the Middle Atlantic Golf Association, an nounced recently that the Washington Country Club has been admitted to mem bership in the association. The mem bers of the club will he eligible to con test for the prizes that will be awarded at tlie annual tournament of the association to be held at the Chevy Chase Club June 6, 7 and 8. Thtj Washington Country Club is locat ed on the Virginia side of the Potomac near Jewell station on the Old Dominion line. They have an eighteen-hole course and an attractive clubhouse from which a most pleasing landscape stretches toward the north and east. Tne committee on advancement con sisting of one member from each of the eleven clubs in the Middle Atlantic Golf Association, was foimed last week. The duties of the members is to promote the interest of the association in the partic ular club of which he is a member. Dr. Thomas J. W. Brown, secretary of the association, stated that a special bulletin board is set apart at each club for the exclusive use of matter pertaining to the association, such as a list of officers, the membership and score cards of every club together with the ground rules. The members of this committee follow: Ormsby McCamraon of the chevv Chase Club, John C. Davidson of the Columbia Country Club, John W. Hranner of the Bannockburn Golf Club. E.

Rucker of the Hermitage Golf Club at Richmond, R. H. Pritchett of the Maryland Country Club at Balti more, J. W. Atkinson, jr., of the Country Club of Virginia, and J. Ralph Baily of the Wilmington Country Club. The Washington Country Club will select a member for the committee this week. At the Bannockburn Golf Club, which is located just west of Chevy Chase circle, interest in the week-end handicap par competitions is growing and many interesting matches were played last week. E. P. Brooke won ov^r Drs. J. R. DeKarges and J. H. Ixjndon when the tie in the second contest was played off. Brooke was two down to par. His medal sccre was eighty-two, with a handicap of six, -made a net medal score of seven ty-six. Brooke's match handicap was five. His card follows: Out U r. 4 5 ? ft 4 5 5?43 in 63444344 u? In the third contest, held last week, W. I. Travers won the prize with a score of two down to par. E. P. Brooke was second best, ebing three down to par after his match handicap had been reduced two strokes. This is a rule applied to all players who win a prize with a score as low as two down to par. Others who did well were John W. Brawner, Daniel I Hazard, John L. Warren, president of the Bannockburn Club; O. H. Wood, F. W. Collins and W. Y Durand. The home-and-home match schedule for clubs in the Middle Atlantic Golf Asso ciation. which will be completed this week, is the largest in the history of the association, as nine clubs will contest for the handsome trophies, whereas only six were entered last year. President Thompson said that the sched ule will be so arranged that a team will visit the home of every contesting team, and later receive this team to play the return match on its own grounds. The prizes become the permanent property of the clubs winning them. The teams will be composed of tt\ve players each.

Defeats Crescent Athletic Club in Keen Contest, 6 to 4. Spcolal Dispatch to The Star. ANNAPOLIS, Md., May 4.-The Mid shipmen's lacrosse team won a notable victory this afternoon, when it downed the strong twelve of the Crescent Athletic Club of New York, 6 to 4. It was a keenly contested game from beginning to end. The Middies fully realized that they would have a hard fight on their hands, because the visiting team w*as composed of men of years of experience with the stick and were de cidedly heavier. But in the opening stages of the batt'.e. the Sailor lads sim ply played their opponents off their feet ifnd registered four goals before the visi tors got a good look-in at a score. Be fore the close of the first half, however, the New Yorkers rallied and netted the ball twice. The second half was even more desperately contested than the first. In fact, there was no margin between the w%rk of the two teams, having man aged to score two goa'.s; the time of the halves was twenty-five minutes: Navy. Positions. Crescent A. C.
