Entry List for, Catholic U. Meet Tonight Exceeds Expectations of Promoters CLOSE TO 280 ATHLETES TO STRIVE FOR LAURELS Practically Every Local Athletic Organization to Be Represented, Except Georgetown—Maryland Has Entered Largest Squad. BY H. C. BYRD. //I "Y te not only are greatly pleased over the present, but also • • \ A / very optimistic for the future prospects for the success V V our track and field meet tonight,” was the substance T ’ of a joint comment by Athletic Director Jack McAuliffe and Coach Dorsey Griffith this morning, when asked if they are satis fied with the results of their endeavors in putting on the first indoor track and field meet held in Washington in five years. “The meet really has gone beyond our expectations.” continued McAuliffe, “and there is no duobt that we shall make it an annual feature of our indoor schedules. We are going to be hard put to take care of all the athletes who have entered, as more men are to take part than we at first thought reasonable to expect. This is sufficient Indication to us that there is room for a big local meet, in which events for local athletes will be given a pre-eminent place.” Catholic University’s first meet since before the war is to begin at 8 o’clock tonight in the big Brookland gymna sium, about the only place left in Wash ington with floor space sufficient to house such an event. Nearly 280 ath letes are entered, and these represent virtually every local athletic organiza tion, except Georgetown. Many of them come from Baltimore and other sections close to Washington. The Baltimore contingent is headed by 11 entries representing the Balti more police force, numbering some of the best track and field meet in the South Atlantic States. It was this group that won the South Atlantic track and field championship last Summer. University of Maryland heads the list of local colleges with an entry list of 29. It seems to stand about the best chance to capture the team trophy, though its athletes are not as old nor as experienced as those who represent the Baltimore police organization. Os ter of the Baltimore police is an excep tional sprinter and Don Foote of the same organization is a good all-around man. Kinnamon, Quinn, Remsburg. Linsey and Campbell will bear the brunt of competition for the Maryland squad. A total of 28 colleges, schools and clubs are entered, excepting George town's six men, the athletes represent ing these organizations are the best in the section. In fact, they represent about all there is in the way of track talent around Baltimore and Washing ton. Two team trophies are to be awarded, one to the organization getting the most points in the open events and' one to the high or prep school which becomes top scorer in that class. The order of events follows: 50-yard dash—High and prep schools, heats. Pole vault—Open. 50-yard dash—Open, heats. 50-yard hurdles Open, heats and flnsls. 50-yard dash—High and prep schools, finals. 50-yard dash—D. C. A. A. U. cham pionship finals.

The Blue and Gray is confronted with the diffi culty of having a gymnasium too small to seat the number of persons that de sire to attend, and it has additional difficulties in finding a place elsewhere suitable in other respects. George Washington last night drop ped Its first Intercollegiate swimming match, losing to Catholic University with only 18 points against 52. The Colonials began a short while back to give consideration to the organization of a swimming team and, to ascertain how it might “take,’* listed two meets with Catholic U. A bigger squad than was looked for S resented themselves and considerable ope is held that the sport may take an abiding place in the Buff and Blue calendar. Last night’s meet was held in the Catholic U. tank and the next is to take place In the Ambassador Ho tel tank, which has been designated as the home pool for George Washington.

Kelly is to run on both the mile and 2-mile teams, and un doubtedly has quite an evening’s work cut out for him. The other members of the mile team are Briggs. Carlin and Burke, and of the 2-mile team are Julicher. Mara and Downing. Leo Sex ton. the Blue and Gray’s great all around athlete, and Kjelstrom. hurdler, are to take part in several events. Coach John O'Reilly had little to say about his prospects for victories, but indicated that he felt some of his men ought to come through. What should be a real boxing match is to take place this week at the Naval Academy, with Western Maryland Col lege booked as the opposing school. The Westminster boxers have been going along at a gait that would seem to make them a strong opponent for any col legiate boxing squad, while the Navy’s record in boxing is almost too well known to need rehashing. Last year Western Maryland fought Navy to a standstill, although it lost the match by a slim margin. And this match, incidentally, shows something of the popularity of boxing In that, not wlthatanding about 7,000 seats are avail able, the Navy is having a hard time in trying to meet the demands for tickets. And, as a matter of fact, It has been stated that it will be impossible to sup ply the demand and that many who de sire to attend will not be able to. ntnzEPBOOF >«4is ten far all asks*. wKfixVA'rVZRWb., FENDER AND RODE WORKS. lS'b.St. N.W.

The contest was played on the Ar mory Hall court before one of the largest crowds that has witnessed a league contest this season Knight's matched the Celtics basket for basket in the first half and were behind by only 18 to 14, when the period ended. Half-way of the second half the Cel tics managed to push out in front, 25 to 20, but the lead was being slowly eaten away when the final whistle blew. A sensational shot by Cronin put the Storemen within 1 point of the Celtics with one minute left to play, but the Celtics obtained the leather and kept it to the end. The Celtics will play the Potomac A. C„ lead by Babe Clarke, tomorrow night at 8 o’clock in Schuler’s Hall with the Clover A.

MacKenzie Unlikely to Make Jaunt With W alker Cup Team BY WALTER R. McCALLUM. THE District Golf Association is due to lose Its fight to have the Walker Cup team alternates ac company the International ama teur team to England this Spring. Ro land* MacKenzie will not go with the team unless some unexpected matter ap pears that makes for the regular members to go abroad. Published reports that Don Moe will not go are untrue, insofar as the United States Golf Association is concerned, and the organization expects the eight team members to be at the gangplank when the Mauretania sails on April 30. On the heels of a resolution passed by the District association Monday night, which asked the United States Golf Association to take the alternates to England this year and prevent pos sible toss of a point in case one or more of the regulars is unable to play, we have the following letter today from Thomas J. McMahon, executive secre taryof the U. S. Q. A.: “We have had no word from Don Moe as to his changing his mind. He has already advised that he will make the trip, and unless something has turned up lately, he will be at the gang plank on April 30. If Moe does not go. Roland MacKenzie will take his place. We have had no word from Maurice McCarthy, but rumors are to the effect that he will stick at Georgetown until J< “Only the eight members of the Walker Cup team will be sent over and no alternates will accompany them. The alternates were named so that if any of the eight first invited could not Weight Adjusts Itself to Swing As a check on the golf swing test explained yesterday, let us note the proper positions of the feet through out the swing, so that when you try it you will clearly see that the arm swing really does make the feet be have.

Hence the left foot is off the ground except on the inside of its ball and big toe. * When you swing through with the arms the weight again shifts. They and the clubhead pull you along the direction of the shot so that the weight shifts to the left leg. The right Is pulled forward and that foot off the ground until its contact is merely on the toe tips. Now try the test shown yesterday and see if these foot movements do not automatically take care of them selves. In short, everything follows the clubhead. Its lead throughout the swing is the golf swing itself. The new illustrated leaflet on “Rutting’’ will aid you in your game. It is free.

In case any of the American players are unable to tee up in the matches the British team will score a point as a defaulted mbteh.” The letter went on to point out that most of the Walker Cup team members plan to play In the British amateur championship, and added the names of three more American entrants, as follows: Aquila C. Olles. Weebum; F. C. Stevens and Hervey Bates Per rin, California. _ The official scribe of Atlanta's golfing emperor—O. B. Keeler —Bobby Jones’ biographer and crack golf writer, will accompany the team and write pieces on the play'of Jones and the others, with emphasis on Jones. So will Scott Chisolm of California, who will devote much of his writing to the deeds of Don Moe and Dr. O. F. Willing, the Pacific Coast's representatives on the team. The resolution passed by the District association proclaimed that the local golf body believes the alternates should accompany the team, in case on# of the team members breaks an ankle or twists his putting stroke, which would put Roland MacKenzie and Maurice Mc- Carthy on the boat on April 80. And now comes the hard-hearted U. 8. O. a. with the declaration that the Walker Cup team is made up of eight men—no more—and that if George Voigt or even Bob Jones busts a pronatlng wrist, it Is Just too bad and the United States must loos# a point. As we recall thtm, the Walker Cup matches played in England have been hard fought affairs. The last one played in was won by a half point. Which leads to believe that If something hap pens to one member of the American team it may be fatal. He does not play in golf tournaments, has not done so for many years, but he still is able to hold his own In Any company, and this year because he has had ample opportunity for practice and has foregone the usual Winter trip with the base ball team, he is playing better golf than ever We mean E. B. Eynon, Jr., secretary of the Washington base ball club, who has held all the Important golf titles about Washington and today would be a man to be seriously reckoned with if he played in big tourney*, even though he was win ning golf events away back in 1910—20 years ago. Ed Eynon is driving the ball so far from the tee that he makes the short game easy and his putting is accuracy itself. Yesterday we saw him deliber ately miss a four footer for a birdie 3 on the first hole at Columbia, and then on the third hole play a 180-yard iron shot to the third green and hole the putt for a birdie 3. Away back two decades ago Eynon, the late Dr. L. Lee Harban, Ed Brooke and John C. Davidson wtre the out standing golfers of Washington. Eynon was the youngest and most brilliant of the quartet, and although he was a shade behind the consistent Harban, he managed to win many tournaments. In 1917 he annexed the Mldatlantic after having won the District amateur, and was generally ranked as Washing ton's leading player. Os late years he has not played tour nament golf, but that does not mean he cannot. Probably if Eynon entered the invitation events today he would upset some of the youngsters who were barely able to toddle when he was a big-timer. ♦ FRANCHISES AVAILABLE (JN CITY TENNIS LOOP Teams desiring to enter the Capital City Tennis League should communicate with President A.

EA6LESAND GRAYS IN BASKET FEATURE Hltfi grade basket ball is looked for when the Skinker Brothers Eagles meet the United Typewriter Grays tonight at 9 o’clock In the suver Spring armory in an Independent League game. In a preliminary the Woltz Photographers, defending A. A. U. champions, will take on the Y. M. C. A. team. Defeat for the Eagles would destroy their chance »to catch the leading French quint. The Grays are in fourth place but lataly have played basket ball that deserves a higher atanding. Individual rivalry between Bruce Kesaler, atar guard of the Grays, and Joe Sweeney, the Eagles’ flashy for ward, should add pep to the battle. A tighter grip on. first place in the Independent league was gained by the French team when it defeated Wood lawn, 44-33. Eddie ColJiflower scored 17 points for French. Taro led the enemy with 9.

March 12 —The At lanta Crackers of the Southern Base Ball Association have just been in spected by their vice president, Robert T. Jones. jr„ at their Spring training camp at Douglas. Ga. The Atlanta golfllng barrister became part owner of the Crackers last Fall when he and 11 other local business men bought the club. He thinks he Ls going to enjoy being a base ball magnate. In buying an in terest in the Atlanta club he became actively connected with a game he pre ferred to golf as a youngster of 7. Bobby's ambition at that age was to be a great catcher. He was enrolled in the golf kindergarten aldo. but liked base ball better until an enthusiastic batsman on the opposing side swung widely, missed the ball and whacked Bobby, who was catching, on the head. “After that.” Bobby said, "I decided to play something else.” PLEBES AT WEST POINT TO PLAY CUBAN ELEVEN WEST POINT, N.

SEVEN stalwarts of the Oonzaga basket ball team will be gradu ated before another season rolls around. Beldort haa a Purple court squad been so hard hit. Coach Orrel Mitchell will hare to do plenty rebuilding to put a capable combination on the floor next Winter. Loss of the seven athletes will not only be felt In basket baU but in foot ball and base ball. All were atelier players in all three sports. Their pass ing all at once is a staggering loss to Oonsaga athletics. Perhaps the most valuable player of the group listed to receive his sheep skin in June Is Buddy Bussink. Guard and forward on the basket ball team, quarterback and halfback on the foot ball eleven and outfielder on the base ball team, his place will be hard to fll Other dependable athletes who are about to hang up their court togs at the I street school include Capt. Danny Pyne. guard or forward; Bob McVsan, forward; Irving Holbrook and A1 Par r rell, centers, and John Farrell and Fred Brew, guards. Tommy Nolan, forward, and Dickie Fitzgerald, guard, both freshmen, are the only seasoned mem bers of the squad to be available next Winter. Though in the matter of games won and lost Oonzaga was not so impres sive, the Purple did not have such a bad basket ball season, at that. It scored several notable victories and the defeats it suffered came for the most part after the hardest kind of battling. Coach Mitchell, while not offering any alibis, does believe that the squad was handicapped by a late start and that it would have done better had the basketers who are also foot ball play ers stopped playing foot ball around Thanksgiving and had an opportunity of getting In plenty of rest before taking up basket ball.
