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,

Georgetown is seeking a place to
stage it* boxtag matches Saturday night
with Bucknell University. 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.

Georgetown has two relay teams and
runners in two events for individuals in
the Knights of Columbus games in New
York tonight. 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.

after two years’ absence from the throne
when they clowned the Knight’s Store
five, by 28 to 27, last night in the cru
cial game of the Alexandria Gazette
Basket Ball League.
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

decisions over out-of-town bowlers last
night at the Health Center. Pete Hoy’s
All-Stars took McCarthy's Fredericks
burg team into camp by a margin of 93
pins, while Ed Walker’s All-Stars
trimmed the B. 8s M. Shops of Wash
ington by 82 pins.
De Armand Cowhig, star of Fruit
Growers, No. 2 team, shattered the
Alexandria record for duckpins last

the record of 405, held by Buck An
derson.
Knight’s Store Midgets. Alexandria’s

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.
One addresses the ball with the
weight a bit back on his heels to
prevent swaying to the rear as the
club swings a bit back at the top of
the swing- Now as you swing back
with the arms, the pull of the arms

will automatically shift your weight
upon the right leg and pull it off
the left. 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.

make the trip the alternates would
step in. 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.

OF BEING MAGNATE
By the Associated Press.
DOUGLAS, Oa.. 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.”

GONZAGA TO LOSE
SEVEN BASKETERS
All of Them, Too, Also Are
Clever Performers in
Other Pastimes.
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.
Spring foot ball now Is monopolising
the sports stage at Oonzaga. Base ball
practice will start Monday and Tues
day. With nine seasoned players at
hand the Purple’s diamond outlook is
decidedly bright. The vets available
are Capt. Fred Brew, first baseman;
McVean and Busslnk, outfielders; Pyne,
catcher; John Farrell, third baseman;
A1 Parrel’, pitcher; Tom Dunn, pitch
er; Joe Mills, shortstop, and Dickie
Fitzgerald, second baseman.
