C. U. to Have Veteran Ball Team: Americans in Olympic Competition Tomorrow
ONLY ONE REGULAR LOST
FROM LAST YEAR’S NINE
Loach Moran, However, May Make Some Shifts in
His Line-Up—Brooklanders and Maryland
i Clash on Court Tomorrow Night.

BY JOHN B. KELLER.
THIS appears to be Catholic University’s year for veteran athletic
combinations. The team that will represent the Brooklanders to
morrow night in the big basket ball game with University of
Maryland is composed entirely of holdovers from last winter, and in the
spring the Red and Black will be able to place on the diamond the same
nine, with the exception of one player, that enjoyed a fairly successful
reason in 1923.
The only base ball team less the Brooklanders sustained through
graduation last summer was Roddy, an outfielder, and there are several
promising recruits from the 1923 freshman nine ready to fight for that
position. In fact, Catholic University should be much stronger in base
ball this year, for it is not likely that the veterans have “gone back,” and
there were several good tossers developed among the freshmen.
Coaoh Charles Moran may leave to
make some shifts In his team, this
year, however. In all likelihood the
1923 Infield, which Included Lawler at
\lrrft base, Mulville at second, Denault
at ahortutop and Ignace at third, will
be changed. De Nault developed arm
trouble toward the fag- end of the
last season and probably will be sent
to the outfield. If this happens, Gar
vin, who was Quite capable at short
and third base for the freshmen, Is
almost certain to -ret Into the varsity

Those two bosket ball games in
volving teams of Catholic University
and the University of Maryland, to
be played at Brookland tomorow
night, promise to be spirited engage

at 7:15 o’clock, is expected to "pep”
the spectators for the more Impor
tant varsity battle to follow.
Everything points to an even break
hi victories, but with the main share
of the honors of the evening going to
Catholic University's big team. The
»*d and Black varsity probably will
prove too experienced a team for the
Marylanders, who returned to basket
ball Just this winter, after forsaking
the sport in the early part of 1919.

WASHINGTON’S venerable Coliseum, 9th street and Pennsylvania

. Clarence Carman, who had requested recognition as an additional
trainer, withdrew his request, asserting that he was unwilling to be the
'.ause of the dispute.
Taylor had Insisted that Carman,
who is an American professional bi
cycle rider, be permitted to help
train the Americans during the
games. The French Olympic commit
tee refused on the ground that it
could not favor the American athletes
by permitting the addition of a
trainer to their staff. The skaters
upheld Taylor’s position, asserting
that they would not compete In the
opening events on Saturday If he
was not upheld.

EARLY OLYMPIC CONTESTS
VERY IMPORTANT TO U. S.
BY LAWRENCE PERRY. ,
NEW YORK. January 25.—With the beginning oi the Olympic vi;.
ter sports at Chamonix in the French Alps—they are to continue
until February s—Americans* are brought to a realizing sense that
the great international games of 1924 are on.
So concerned are we with the track and field sports beginning at the
Colombes Stadium, just outside Paris, on July 5, that many of the twentv
odd events on the Olympic program have, generally speaking, been over
looked in this country. All sports not strictly confined to one nation
and peculiar thereto, such as base ball, cricket and the like, are upon the
schedule, the bulk of which lies in June and July.
Victories in all branches of the reg
istered sports count for points and
it should not be overlooked that our
success in the winter sports now in
progress are of Importance to us—
just as important, as some one has
cleverly put it, as base ball victories
In April are to a big league base ball
Interest la Hockey Matches.
Chiefly we are represented at Cha
monix In skiing and In hockey. In
terest will be- particularly In the suc
i cess or failure of our hockey players,
not only because the game is popular
I in many parts of this country, but be
cause of the flurry occasioned by the
. selection of the United States team.
Stars might have been picked from
several cities where hockey is ex
pertly played by various teams, but j
the American Olympic committee j
wisely, as it may appear, decided to !
select a unit; that is to say, a team |
that had played together as a splen- ■
did mechanism. It was precisely as
though In an effort to decide the foot
ball supremacy of the United States
as among the various sections, an
eastern committee had selected the
Yale eleven of 1923 instead of going
j about among the various institutions
■ and picking an all-eastern team.
The virtue of such course was ;

time. There is no personal contact
between the skaters and no cettizia
of a pace.
Another condition which Is differ
ent, but not expected to be any handi
cap to the Americans, Is that tho
track at Chamonix is a 400-meter
oval, or about twice the size of aa
ordinary American track.

low the speed-skating program.
A report of a French committee
sent to investigate the poslbility of
Russia competing in the Olympic
games this year was- received today,
disclosing a badly disorganized state
of athletic affairs under the soviet
and the probability that Russia would
not put any real strength into au
Olympiad for some years.
Course: la Kept Secret.
XEW YORK, January ZZ. —l -
cross-country course over which tla>
nOlymplc cross-country championship
will be decided next July will be kept
a secret until the day of the race.
This information came to the Ameri
can Olympic commute from the
French Olympic committee and wa-j
in response to a r«*guest made by
Secretary Frederick W. Rublen iW
information as to the nature of the
Olympic cross-country course.
Allan H. Muhr, international secre
tary for the French Olympic commit
tee, gives assurances, however, that
the course will not bo very hilly;
that there will be practically no road
running and that very short spike - f
may be used to advantage.

So the Boston A. A. team was
selected In toto. But when the time
came two or three of the Bostonians
were prevented from making the trip.
And so Pittsburgh was drawn upon
for Herbert Drury, and Clarence Abel
was levied from St. Paul. It is not
to be recorded that/he western team a/
were very happy over losing these *
two stars at a time when the national *
championship series was in progress.
The team is a very good one in
deed, and is not likeiy to meet with
a great deal of trouble until (t runs

said to be essentially a club team,
