He tickled the hell in 14 seconds. The dfld mark was JO 2-5 seconds. Frank .Siaboft of the Grace Club wan the only other competitor able to climb the full distance.

Because of the heavy rains of Monday I which necessitated a postponement of I the opening of the annual closed tourna ment of the Chevy Chase Club, play | was begun yesterday afternoon, and al | though the weather overhead was all that couid be asked for, underfoot the courts were rather soggy and to some degree slowed up the play. Very good progress was made and the tennis committee expects to end the event Saturday, when Spencer Gordon will defend his title as club champion, which carries with it the "navy cup," donated by former Secretary of the Navy Newberry, against this year's win ner. The men's singles, scratch, furnished the best matches of yesterday, the Mor gan Graves match and that between Walter D. Wilcox and J. Upshur Moor head easily being the features. In the first-named, Dudley Morgan sprang quite a surprise when he Won from John K. Graves, as Graves was generally con ceded to be the better man. but Morgan has been doing good work with the Georgetown University team and has been "coming" steadily, and In yes terday's match he deserved the victory His service was exceptionally good and ; he covered the court to perfection. Graves is a hard hitter and played his i usual good game, with the result that j every contest was close and the winner j was in doubt until the last ball went over | the net. The Wilcox-Moorhead match, which! was one of the most important in the tourney in that it disposed of one of the best in the event, also came in the nature of a surprise, as Wilcox, after taking the opener, 6?1, could not keep up the good work and lost the next two, 6?0. This match was much closer than the score would indicate, however, as many of the games were deuce ones, and Wilcox lost over half of those in the last two sets by just one or two points. In the first set he never showed to better advantage, but Moorhead improved in the second and third and won them, the heavy balls and soggy court apparently Just suiting his hard, driving game, most of his points coming on errors by Wilcox, who could not return these drives with any degree of certainty, and who lost many a point by driving to the net. Fielding Simmons and J. L. Karrick furnished a good match in the prelimi nary round of the same class, the latter losing out, 7?9, 6?1 and 6?3. Both men did some excellent work in this match, Simmons being steadiness personified, while Karrick did some wonderful ground-covering, making any number of seemingly impossible returns, but he could not keep his opponent away from the net, and this was largely responsible for*his defeat. The handicap event did . not furnish anything unusual, while but one match in the women's event was decided. Miss Leutze winning from Mr. Knauss in the first round. 6?3, 1?6 and 7?5. This was a very close match and was anybody's until the very last. Miss Leutze taking the third and deciding set after tying it up at 5-all.

CHANCE GRABS TB.TJESDALE. Trades Outfielder Gilhooley for Buf-1 falo's Clever Second Baseman. NEW YORK. April 22.-Fr?i?k Gil liooley, the outfielder purchased from Montreal last season by Manager Frank Chance of the New York Americans, is to be traded to Buffalo for Frank Trues dale. a second baseman. Waivers were asked on Gilhooley yesterday and he will go to Buffalo as soon as all of the clubs give their consent Truesdale probably will play second for the Yankees in the place of Hartsell. He will report to Chance immediately. Gilhooley was purchased from Montreal for a sum said to have been $10,000, but the amount was not to be paid until hs had made good. Whether the purchase price is to be paid now has not. been made known by Manager Chance or of ficials of the Montreal club. Boston Takes Infielder Kraft. NEW YORK. April 22.?Evidently George Stallings of the Boston Braves is not so well satisfied with Schmidt, his big left-handed first baseman, as he was before the campaign opened. Boston secured Infielder Kraft from Brooklyn yesterday at the waiver price plus the $250 C. H. Kbbets ex pended on this fellow's spring school ing. Kraft is a first baseman who was drafted from Xew Orleans. BOEHUNG WEAKENS AND GAME IS LOST Pitches Wonderful Ball for Eight Innings, Then Shows Reversal of Form. NATIONALS SE?M TO NEED MUCH BATTING PRACTICE Players Have Evidenced Decided Weakness in Hitting?Other Gossip of the Contest. BY J. ED GBIlLO. NEW YORK. April 22.?After pitching gilt-edged ball for eight innings yester day. during which time the Yankees really never stood a chance to score, Joe Boehling suddenly showed a reversal of form in the ninth, was hit hard, and had a game taken from him which he ap parently had clinched. A change in atmospherical conditions undoubtedly caused Boehling's undoing. So long as the sun was in sight it was warm enough to allow his arm to work freely, but once Old Sol started to hide behind the tall stands of the Polo Ground his arm grew cold, .and with the chill went his effectiveness. Up to the ninth four widely scattered hits had been made off Boehling's de livery and not a run had been scored. He seemed to be absolute master of the struggle, and was at no time in danger. There was no indication that ho had changed when the first man up in the ninth. Hartzell, sent a fly to Milan, but he began to falter when he walked Walsh, the next man up. Chance substi tuted Reynolds for Williams, and, after getting two strikes on him. Reynolds hit to right for a base and Walsh trotted around to third. Holden followed with a hit and Walsh scored. Boehling struck out Keating, who was sent to bat for Cook, but he walked Peckinpaugh. fill ing the bases. Chance here substituted himself at first. Sweeney hit the first ball pitched to center for a base, and Warhop, who was running for Reynolds, scored. Chance, however, was nailed at the plate, trying to put over the winning run. That ended the Inning with the score tied. Boehling had even less in the tenth. Again he got rid of the first man to face him?Cole, who was thrown out by Mc Bride. Maisel. however, dropped a double into right field and went to third when Moeller's throw got away. Hartzell came up next and hit the first ball pitched to center for a single, which won the game. Pitching such as Boehling did should have won him the game in a canter. Even the ninth-inning rally would not have beaten him had his beam mates taken advantage of their opportunities to get runs. But twice did the Nationals score. For a time that seemed sufficient to decide the contest, but the visitors had several opportunities to increase their lead, but did not do so because of faultv base running and inability to hit. TTi fact, both of the runs they obtained were the result of errors. No ball game that the Nationals have been in this season seemed more certain of being a victory than did yesterday's game up to the ninth Inning. Up to this stage Joe Boehling w&s absolutely in vincible against Chance's men, and, with a two-run lead to work on when the ninth rolled around, it looked like dollars to doughnuts that the Nationals were about to annex their fourth victory. But the ninth inning had not proceeded very far before It became evident that Boeh ling had lost his grip. He gave a base on balls and his arm seemed not to re spond to his call. He did undoubtedly get chilled with the setting of the sun. and he could not produce that which had held the locals in check up to this time. Then came a series of hits by players who heretofore had not even been able to foul his delivers', and in an instant the score was tied. Three hits and two passes had been Boehling's performance in the ninth. That might happen to any pitch er, of course, but in this instance it was plainly seen that Boehling had lost his stuff. But he was sent back into the tenth, and after getting rid of Cole Maisel doubled and Hartzell singled, and the game was over. It was an awful game to lose, because up to the ninth the Nationals seemed to have everything their own way. Boehling never pitched a more competent game of balr than he did for eight innings yester day, but the chill, which came with the setting of the sun, undoubtedly caused him to lose his effectiveness. Unless there is a vast improvement in the hitting of the Nationals, their pitch ers will have to twirl shut-out ball in order for the team to win. Any sort of hitting would have won yesterday's game in a walk, for there were no less than four opportunities offered when a base hit would have sewed up the game. But the hitting continues weak; In fact, it has not improved since the season open ed, but it will have to if the team is to cut the figure in the race that is ex pected. The present slump, of course, cannot last much longer, but while It does it Is entirely up to the pitchers to make victories possible. Up to the ninth inning Boehling had not given a base on balls: his control, In fact, was perfect. He also managed to get rid of Hartzell in this inning, who hit a fly to Milan. But with Walsh facing him. >ie showed signs of weakening. He did not seem able to get anything on the ball and "Walsh walked. Two clean base hits followed, then he recovered suffi ciently to strike out Keating, a pinch hitter. But the revival of form was short-lived, for he followed this by walk ing Peckingpaugh, and then Sweeney made the hit which tied the seore and came near winning the game^ for Chance, running for Holden, was out at the plate on a very close decision. After having pitched such brilliant ball Manager Griffith did not think it wise to make a change, but Boehling was even easier in the tenth, and, after retiring the first batter, was hit for a single, a dbuble and a single, which ended the day. But for some misunderstanding around second base the chances are that the run in the tenth would not have been scored. Maisel's two-bagarer was a lit tle pop fly to right, close to the foul line. Moeller got the ball as quickly as he could and made a long throw to second. It reached there in time to hit Maisel, who was already standing on the bag. bounded off to left field and, of course, Maisel took third base. Had he remained on second he could not have scored, for Harwell's hit .would have been an easy out had not Morgan been playing in close for a play at the plate. If King Cole's performance in the two innings he pitcned yesterday can be taken as a criterion of the form he is in this spring he is sure to be a win ning pitcher in this league. Cole not only had remarkable speed and con trol, but he showed a change of pace and a curve ball that were baffling. In the two innings that he officiated on the rubber no one reached the bag. and tbrea of the Oriffmen struck out. One of three pitchers will be wo-ked by GriUlth today. En gel, Shaw or Ayers while it is not unlikely that Chance will send Cole right back again. Peckinpaugh's two-bagger, which started the eighth inning, was a hard line drive right at Howard Shanks, but the Nationals' left fielder could not see the ball, which was hidden in the shadows of the stand, and, though ha put up his hands to protect himself, the ball struck him on the shins and rolled almost back to the infield.

Yet Boehling did not allow a ?core in this inning:. Had the Nationals been at home since they have been on the road *he chances are that thev would now be playing as they should. But there is no batting practice on the road except the twenty five-minute period which is allowed be fore the game and, as a result, the players have been unable to improve themselves In this respect. When the team gets home it is to be given a severe drilling In batting in the hope of getting it in good form. It is, of course, but natural that the hitting should be light at this season of the year. All teams are suffering from a lack of hit I ting, but those at home stand a better chance to improve than those that are I traveling. Fritz Maisel is playing some high grade ball for the Yankees this spring. The midget looks like a real star, and is not only fielding and running well, but he appears to be a lucky little chap at the bat. Yesterday he got three hits, only one of which was clean cut, the first one, a single. His two doubles were scratches, being little pop flies close to the line in right and left. Joe Boeliling has acquired a motion to first base which Is causing a lot of trouble. The Boston players howled when he caught one of their players off by use of this motion, And when in the first inning today he nailed-STaisel, who had hit safely, off first the entire New York team, led by Chance, surrounded the umpires and wanted a balk called, which, however, was not allowed. Up to the ninth inning only twenty seven men had faced Boehling. and he seemed destined to pitch a game on a parallel with the one In Boston. There is no doubt that he would have finished strong, but for the fact that he cooled off after the sun disappeared. It was this fact which caused him to lose his effectiveness in the ninth. He seemed to lose both his speed and curves, and none of the hits made by the Yankees, five in number. 1n the final two Innings, was of the scratchy variety. They were all clean cut. with the probable excep tion of Maisel's double, which was made possible because it was perfectly placed where it could not be reached. It was a cool day even while the sun was play ing on the field, and it was cold when It disappeared behind the tall stands. There seems to be a disposition on the part of the Nationals to let up just as soon as they gain a lead in a game. Once they are a run or two ahead they do not appear to hustle for runs, like I they do when they are tied up or behind. This probably account^ for tfielr being in so many close games. It is a serious failing, which may cost many games during the season. A ball team that hopes to be successful should have no mercy on its opponents, and should beat them as badly as it possibly can. Chance made a lot of changes in his j team in the ninth, and this undoubtedly won him the game. After Walsh had been walked, he took Williams out and sent Reynolds, a catcher, to hit for him. Reynolds singled and put his team in | the running. Then he had Warhop run for Reynolds, and, after Holden had singled, he put himself in to run for him. Chance made a splendid efTort to score on Sweeney's single, which ordi narily would have won the game, but Henry successfully blocked the plate and got his man. Chanoe, however, was forced to get iflto the game at this stage and played first base in the final inning. Despite the fact that Joe Boehling weakened badly in the ninth inning, he would have been saved had not judgment been lacking in this inning. With but one out, Walsh on first and three and two on Reynolds, Ray Morgan foolishly started to cover second on the final pitch ed ball, and Reynolds' grounder rolled safely into ripht, when if Morgan had remained in his position he could easily .have retired the man. Another blunder which no doubt pre vented the Nationals from scoring in the | eighth was made by Gandil. With Milan on third and Gandil on first and one out. $t would have been the play to allow Morgan to hit. for the infield was playing [close for a play at the'plate. Gandil. however, foolishly tried to steal sec ond. There was no play on with Milan, who stood still on third while Gandil was being touched out. If Clyde Milan expects to be prominent among the base stealers this season he will have a lot of lost time to make up. Though the team has played five games. Milan has not yet a pilfer to his credit. In fact he has not yet made an efTort to steal. This, of course, has been large ly due to prevailing conditions when he has reached the bases, and, what is more, the playing fields have all been more or less soggy this spring, and there has not been much chance to display real speed. Walter Johnson left for Washington late vesterdav afternoon to prepare him self 'for the opening game against Bos ton. The score: WASH'S. AB. R H. SO.SB.BB.SII. O. A. E.

ONE TEAM VICTOR AND OTHERS LOSE Georgetown Defeats Trinity, But Catholic U. and M. A. C. Drop Their Games. BUSINESS STARTS SERIES WITH WIN OVER CENTRAL Stenographers, However, Flail to Show u Good Form ai Wag Expected. BY H. C. BTBD. Georgetown won easily. Catholic Uni versity and the Maryland Agricultural j College lost. That is the story of the | three college base ball games played here yesterday, briefly told. Trinity Col | lege of North Carolina was defeated by | the Blue and Gray by 10 to 1; Harvard ? won from Catholic University by the | same score, and the Maryland Aggies lost j to West Virginia University by 2 to 3. | The game between Georgetown and Trinity was much more one-sided than | would ordinarily have been expected, j The North Carolina team generally is | much stronger than the average college i aggregation, and that it should lose to j the Blue and Gray by such a big margin was unlooked for. The game undoubted ly demonstrates the vast improvement shown recently in the work of the George town players. Prom a rather crude combination, Coach Coogan has developed a nine which is strong enough to give the best of college representatives a hard run for victory. The inability of Croker and Trayers to hold the Harvard team in check was re | sponsible for the decisive defeat of the ; Brooklanders. The Crimson batters got hits when hits were needed, while the local players could do nothing with the offerings of Hitchcock, who allowed only two safeties. The Harvard nine looked to be exceptionally strong, and will prob ably cut quite a figure in the inter collegiate race. So effective was Hitch cock for Harvard that he struck out eleven, and was at all times safe, as far as losing his game was concerned. j The Maryland Agricultural College lost to a weaker team when West Virginia I University defeated it, 3 to 2. Poor head j work on the bases and wildness by Hof fecker cost the Farmers the game. West I Virginia did not 3how a strong team, the | players being below the average in hit ting, while they were only mediocre fielders. Barron, who did the pitching for the visiting nine, is a team in him self. though, in college base ball. Yes terday when men were on the bases hej was just about as hittable as would have j been rifle bullets shot across the plate. At any rate, the Farmers did not get a single hit when men were on the bags. Business High got a start yesterday in the high school series by winning the first game from Central. The Stenogra- j phers did not get the long end of the j score very easily, and really their per-1 formance was hardly up to what was j expected. The Blue and White team of | Central has done little in the practice games which woulfi entitle It to play such a game against Business as was the case. Kelly, who pitched for Business, hardly did as well as he should have done. Central got eleven hits off his delivery, which makes it certain that he did not work as well as possible. With Kelly pitching the kind of ball that he has shown in some of the practice contests Central would not have hit him as freely as it did. Central showed unexpectedly well and deserves every credit for its performance. The Business team played poorly in the field, making a total of eight errors. Central had five misplays to its credit, or rather discredit. Harry Harris, play.ing an outfield posi tion for Business, got three hits out of three trips to the plate. His batting was a big feature, and was mainly responsi ble for the victory obtained by his team. The Treasury Amateur Base Ball League opened its season yesterday, the Interstate nine winning from the Bureau of Statistics, 5 to 3. The work of both teams was excellent for so early in the year, and especially considering that neither of them has had a great deal of practice. Duckett led both teams in hitting, the Bureau catcher getting two hits out of three times up. He was the only man on either club to hit safely more than once. Hoffecker. pitching for M. A. C.. yester day against West Virginia University, A i passed the first man up in each of the first five innings. It was not a great surprise that three of these five men scored. More college base ball games are lost on bases on balls than in any other way. There are few allege games which are made up of piayirs capable of doinK enough clean hltlfciff t> win, and the ma jority of runs scored are generally the result of men being sent to first on four wide ones. Donnelly and Tracey were the men who got the two hits registered by Cath olic University yesterday against Hitch cock, the Harvard pitcher. Georgetown Is scheduled to play the nine of the North Carolina Agricultural and Mechanical College today. The Blue and Gray will probably be against a much stronger combination than that played yesterday. Entry blanks for the three-mile run to be held by the Carroll Institute are out The event will take place May 16. Western High and Eastern will meet today in the second contest of the high school series. It Is probable that Adams will pitch for Western, whi.e Johnson Is certain to go into the box for Eastern. MORE RECORDS FOR HOPPE. Easily Seat* Horning?t&r and Set* Up New Figures at 14.1 Billiard*. NEW YORK, April 22.-Or* Morning star was an interested spectator of the 14.1 billiard match with Willie Hoppo last night at the Hotel Astor. The latter was playing In invincible form and de feated Morningstar by the one-slaed count of 400 to 66. The second tourna ment match of the evening was between Yamada and George Sutton, and tne man from Japan won a close contest by a score of 400 to 389. Had it not been for a poor decision by the referee. Sylvester Levy, the tables might have .??en turned. When Sutton In the eighteenth Inning had the balls gathered in perfect control his twenty-fifth point was not allowed, though practically all of tne spectators in a position to Judge were certain tnat the billiard had been completed. The Hoppe-Morningstar maicn was the event of the night, and *hlie It resolved itself into what was vittuaily an exhibi tion by Hoppe. It was Interesting from the point of high-caliber billiards. Hoppe established a new high record average of 30 10-13 and a new n.gh run of 134. Before the match had fairly started it was evident that Hoppe was In perfect stroke, while Mornings tax seemed to real ise that he was playing against hopeless odds. There was little lite in his work and he could not get the ivories to re spond to his strokes. When he did seem to have the possibility of ** run tnere would be a difficult line-up, while Hoppe. on the other hand, could place ths spheres Into any position ho desired. Most of his work was close ptay. His high run of 134 came in the seventh in ning. and he then had occasioa *o show all his skill. Every possible fciau of a shot seemed to come at some time In the run, and all were executed, even the most difficult, with apparent eas^. The Sutton-Yamada match was mark ed by two brilliant runs by tne Jap, one totaling 114 and the other Af. In the afternoon garaat* Calvin Deal a rest scored over "Young* /ake Schaefer by a total of -00 to 345. while at the ot her side of the room George islusson defeated Harry P.
