COLD WIND ON NORTH SIDE
I. A. C. swimmers won the 400
yard water relay race in their own
pool, and came within three points of
the New York, A. C. in competition
for the National A. A. U. tank cham
pionships. Fifteen points will be giv

teamwork, for when a team-is on the
road it has no opportunity for morn
But Mitchell is glad his club will
shortly be going away from here.

in the two big leagues and the pldy

They must favor their arms, and the
pitchers are forced to work under

As an instance, Larry Doyle was
lifted yesterday after four innings of

thought best not to take any chances
with him." It is possible Larry will
