SONS OF CHAMPION ATHLETES SELDOM SHOW GREAT ABILITY nil l l 'Jf Athletic prowess is not inherited. Sons of famous fathers, though they often try to excel past family records, bat too low to qualify as big leaguers. So far we have had no son of a world's champion boxer, baseball star, tennis wizard or golf super, who has been able to twinkle as brightly In the athletic world as his father has done before him. Yet there are many sons of famous fathers striving to climb up the ladder in the same game. They usually succeed In the same ra tio that they apply themselves Just like any other boy whose parents are not athletically inclined. There are several good examples of youngsters trying to follow in their fa ther's footsteps. Wefers Fine Athlete. Bernie Wefers, Sr., Is trying to tutor Bernie, Jr., to run faster than he did when he set the 220-yard world's rec ord sprint and which Charley Pad dock of California recently trimmed down a fraction of a second. Young Wefers is a fine athlete. He has a good running body. But he has devel oped it because, like any other athlete, he has diligently applied himself. So far he has never showed the speed vhich his father possessed. Fitzsimmons Is Trying. Young Bob Fitzsimmons has tried unsuccessfully to make xi name in the ring similar to his father, the great "Ruby Bob' but Young Bob Is still in the "try" stage. Johnny Evers is encouraging his boy, Johnny, Jr., to follow the diamond path which he made so brilliant. Johnny, Jr., is barely started in his teens. He may be heard from later. Christy Mathewson has a boy who will try to follow Big Six's diamond career. Ty Cobb has a couple of boys who will be trying to show up their daddy when they get a little bigger. How ever, Ty has other plans for them be sides baseball. He wants his boys to be doctors or lawyers. Hoppe Grooming His Boy. Willie Hoppe Is grooming his little boy in billiards in the hope that it will De nis son ana not an outsider wno will some day strip him of his billiard crown. Some of these youngsters may dis prove the century-old adage that but . i m i one memoer oi a xainiiy ever Decomes. a champion. But so far it hasn't been done. Sons may inherit the inclination to become champs. They may Inherit healthy bodies. But all of this could be easily discounted by numerous ex amples of failures of sons to copy their fathers. It is environment training and ap-' plication that makes new champions. COLOR SCHEME IN FOOTBALL I ff Coach Zuppke Figures That Orange Colored Jerseys Get Better Results Than Blue.
