Sandlot Teams Shine in W. B. A. A. Tilts : Yale Crew Is an Impressive Machine
RIVERSIDES SHOW PUNCH
IN SENIOR SECTION A WIN
Victors Art' Halt'd Hijjh in Harr for Divisional Title
—Thrilling Contest Staged by Teams of
Junior and Midget Classes.
B ASE I'AIJ. gripped the entire sandlot realm yesterday. Irani*
affiliated with the senior, junior and midget divisions of the
Washington Base Ball and Athletic Association displayed their
wares in the majority of tilts, and some base hall of the first order was
produced. Rivalry was particularly keen in the senior competition of the
W. B A. A. race, as the nines entered represent the best of their class
hereabout.
That S-to-7 victory of the Riversides o\er the Argyles in Section A
of the senior division was a thriller. Trailing S-to-J in the last inning, the
Arjfyles launched a terrific drive, but just lacked the punch necessary to
deadlock the count. Jones and Logan toed the mound for the Argyles,
vielding twelve hingles. while their team-mates garnered nine safe clouts
off the skints of Snoots. Yesterday's victory boosted the stock of the
Riversides considerably, as the Argyles were considered one of the
Strongest nines in this division.

netted four runs, enabled the War

Third baseman. New York Giant*.

** * *
The proper position for the third
baseman to take in such a case is a
little away from the base and on the
infield side, the side toward home
plate. This gives the baseman the
greatest range when he tries to snag
the throig and does not put him in
an unhandy position for the put-out
nor in a dangerous position, as
blocking, the ba-re-line would do.
Should tlie throw be poor, the
third baseman -may kave to go into
the base-line territory to get it. but
if this can be avoided, sts much the
better, because a runner coming into
third base is usually in a desperate
hurry and slides into the base with a
hard, vicious-, hook slide.

HELEN WILLS IS CERTAIN
TO WIN NET FANS ABROAD
BY LAWRENCE PERRY.
EVV YORK, May 19.—Helen Wills is going to fake England and
\ J Trance by storm. And this aside from her tennis prowess—that is
| to say her ability so defeat Suzanne Lenglen.
She has a sweetness of manner, a charm that registers immediately
upon both men and women. Lots of girls can make a man think her
charming, but when both sexes agree on this point it may be accepted
that she is absolutely a charming girl.
Sailing with her mother, she acted and looked just what she tst a
corking young college girl going abroad to see things and incidentally to
play tennis.
Tennis is liable to play havoc with
a young woman’s looks. The strain
of competition seems to draw their
faces and harden Their eyes as well
as to detract from the accepted
feminine grace of movement No less
an observer than Walter Mace, train
er of American Davis cup teams, says
tournament tennis Is no game for
the girl who wishes to be the reign
ing beauty of the drawing room and
the ballroom floor. Thus far her ten
nis has taken no such toll of Helen
Wills’ good looks, in whi<Ji respect
sh© is already the world's tenuis
champion.
Rivals Are Compared.
Compared to Mile. Lenglen, if the
two meet on the courts, our American
champion will be as Georges Carpen
tier to Bull Montana, and this is
handing Suzanne something at that.
When you come down to tennis
ability no such discrepancy is found.
There’s a taste-thrill
in store
for the man who has yet to try
La Palina. With its smooth, mellow
flavor that’s different. La Palina
makes the actual smoking even better
than the anticipation. Let La Palina
SHOW you why it made good*

FINE CONTESTS PROVIDED
IN THREE SANDLOT LOOPS
WASHINGTON'S three big sandlot leagues, the Independent,
Potomac and Washingtnn-Maryland circuits, provided many
well contested games yesterday. Interest was centered on the
Independent loop, which is composed of right of the city’s leading un
limited clubs. Dominican Lyceum looms as a formidable contender as a
result of its S-to-0 victory over the Knickerbockers.
Wtth Granini hurling in tin© ■fyle,
th© southwest clubmen were never In
danger. Klsticr toed the mound for
tin l Knlcks and was enmbed for *lx
blnglett in as many Innings. Rain Ims
halted the game. Klucken and Hyrn©
accounted for a pair of blows each
and they btl th© Dominican attack.
Mohawks, unlimited sandlot cham
pions last year, won their first game
tn the Independent series by show
ing the way to the Shamrocks in a
6-to-4 match. C. Kuhnert was the
mound selection for the Shamrocks.
He yielded nine safeties, one of them
being a triple off th© bat of Goetz.
Fans in nearby Virginia turned out
to sec the Arlington Athletic Club
ring In a 9-to-6 victory over th©
cherrydale nine In the Independent
loop. A barrage of twelve blows off
the delivery of Claude paved the way
for Arlington. Pflel smacked a triple
for the winners.
Waverly toesers presented a smooth
working combination when they
pointed the way to the Petworlh
Athletic Club, 5 to 2. Waverly lias
garnered two straight wins In the
Independent series th.ua far and It
now stands a-s one of the strongest
contenders in the circuit.
Rlankie ItobrrtMn of the St. Jo
seph’s team, struck out eleven of the
Georgetown Athletic Association
clubmen, his team winning, 8 to 5.
in the Potomac league. Ntcre, White
hill and Panel la each drove a po-ir of
safeties for the winners. St. Joseph’s
now has two wins to its credit in the
series.
Rossiyn fell before the Rialto Ath
letic Club. 13 to 11, In the Potomac
League. Seventeen wallops were reg
istered by the winners. Goodman,
who hurled for the Kialton. was
nicked for thirteen clouts, but he did
well in the pinches.
A spirited match was waged be
tween the Hilltop Athletic Club and
the Barretts, which the former nosed
out, 5 to 4, In one of the best games
of the series. Linkins hurled well
for the losers, but he was given
ragged support. BUI Lovelace of the
Hilltops accounted for a trio of safe
drives.
St. Stephen's Athletic Club was of
fered little opposition when It routed
the Tcnleytown nine, 15 to 6. in
another Potomac match. Conway,
House. Poor and Bean turned in a
galaxy of bingies for the winners.
Kastern Athletic Association un
limited.* made it two in a row by
downing the Lehigh Athletic Club.
19 to 6. Raines held the losers down
to four safeties, while his team con
nected for twelve hits.
Union Printers, one of the Strong-
Fleet as a gazelle, accurate, brilliant,
Suzanne is a real champion. Opposed
to these qualities Helen Wills will
reveal more power, probably more
endurance and an unruffled morale
whatever happens. Her play at For
est Hills just previous to sailing con
vinced all who have been following
her game since she first came out
that she is better fitted to cope with
the world’s champion woman player
this year than last.
On her forehand she is even more
blazing than ever; she whips back
shot after shot with increasing force
until it fully approximates the fore
hand of most men. And of her back
hand she has developed an absolutely
offensive drive. At the net she re
vealed splendid ability, volleying
either forehand or backhand with
great speed and dexterity.
All the indications seem to be that
she is well qualified to give Lenglen
the fight of her life.
©»t teams In the Potomac series,
easily disposed of the O’Donnell's
team, fi to 0. The winners clouted
the ball at will and were never
threatened.
Inferior Department athletes took
the measure of the Snyder-Parmer
Pont. 7 to 0, in one of the upsets
of the Washington-Maryland series.
The losers could do little with Otts
Lusby, who yielded but three safeties.
The Interiors smacked nineteen safe
clouts.
Koamer tossers lost their second
straight league game by dropping
an 1 l-to-8 game to the Prince Georges
team. Clatterbuck and Harke dished
out a puzzling brand of ball and the
Reamers got but eight blows.
Mount Rainier ran roughshod over
the Maryland Athletic Club, winning,
12 to 6. White of the winners con
nected for three blows in as many
times at the bat. His team pushed
across six runs in the seventh inning.

The occasion was the annual spring
tournament of the Washington
Newspaper Golf Club, held at the
Washington Golf and Country Club.
Col. James D. Preston, omnipresent
secretary of the club, had gathered
together the greatest aggregation of
divot diggers in captivity and pre
tournament predictions were that the
world high-scoring record will be
broken.
Secretary Wallace of the Depart
ment of Agriculture played in a
four-ball match with Robert T. Bar
ry, president of the scribes’ organiza
tion; George H. Holmes of the In
ternational News Service, and

OLD ELIS HOLD BIG EDGE
FOR SUPREMACY IN EAST
Only Syracuse and Navy Yet to Be Heard From and
Have to be Very Good in Order
to Outshine Blue Oarsmen.
BY LAWRENCE PERRY.
NEW YORK, May 19.—Having seen all hm two eastern crews in
regattas, the temptation is strong to pick Vale as the best bv all
odds of the eastern eights. Rut Syracuse is yet to be seen in an
important regatta, as well as the Navy. So opinion has to be withheld
for the time being.
The fact remains, however, that for power, rhvthm. beauty of poise
and deliberate ease of execution this Eli eight stands out among the best
combinations the writer has seen. Unless Yale enters the Olympic trials
or sends her varsity to the American Henley, she will be seen in no more
races of intermediate distance. There remains bpt the four-mile -ace
against Harvard on the Thames.

STORTS.
This is never an event to be dis
counted. but if Yale loses the defeat
will eoiistitute one of the great
sporting surprises of the year Al
though the Washington eight is yet to
be seen in the east this year, there is
not the slightest reason for not
granting the Huskies every right to
kinship with this Vale crew, and the
pity is they are nog to meet.
Watching those three Yale crews,
the varsity, junior varsity and fresh
man. one was struck by the simi
larity of their style and general wa
termanship, which showed, for one
thing, that Kdward Header has a
comprehensive eye and a far-reach
ing capacity.
Vale has had other crews com
posed of men as brawny, as intelli
gent and as devoted as £ll the ship
this season. Yet, not since the early
1 :»ohs, with two or three notable ex
ceptions, has she sent out so accom
plished an eight. And she has ha 1
mentors who knew’ even more about
watermanship than leader—or at
least were equipped with a broader,
more varied experience.
The answer is, of course, that
Header has the gift of imparting
something to his men, just as in the
classroom there are professors who
can drive, knowledge into their pu
jjtils and others who cannot.
