IN DISTANCE RUN
i Jackson, the Britisher, Runs
Marvelous Race for
KIVIAT, TABER, AND
Decision of Judges Was Deferred
Until Photograph of Finish
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, July 11.
Amerca was forced to surrender to
England and Finland In the middle
distance races at the Olympic games.
Buch wonderful performers as John
Paul Jones, Abel Klvlat, and George V.
Bonhag, heroes of many heroic strug
gles In the United States, were out
classed by their opponents here, in
deed, Bonhag didn't place, while Jones
lost his chance by sprinting too early.
Jackson, the Oxford student, thin as
a fence rail, tall and angular, set a
record In the 1,500-meter race that
snouiu stand for years. Opposed to
Jones, Klvlat, and Taber, the Brown
University star, he left them all be
hind. The three Americans, watching
each other .like hawks, didn't think the
thin Britisher had enough stamina to
last. Right here they were fooled.
When the sprint came In the last hun
dred meters Jackson was away like a
runaway colt. He was using every bit
of reserve strength in his make-up, and
the Americans in the rear never had a
chance of catching him, He flashed
across the line In 3:56 4-5, breaking the
record by more than six seconds.
Faints at Finish.
The effort was too much for the slim
Oxonian, and he fell to the ground In
a dead faint as he passed the mark.
Physicians ran to his assistance and
Boon had him conscious again. Klvlat,
the little New Yorker, offered Jackson
his hand, but was waved away. For a
moment Klvlat was grieved, and Jack
son's action caused a stir among the
Howevir, as soon as he had fully
(gained his tittength, Jackson apolo
Sized for his rudenesj and today made
satisfiictory amends to Klvlat. Now all

Won't Give Him Chance.
NEW YORK, July ll.-Buck, Crouse.
who is to meet Dave Kurtz at Madison
Square Garden Monday evening, 1b try
ing to arrange a match with Frank
Klause, Jack Dillon or Eddie McGoorty.
Crouse says these men, who are dis
puting the middleweight title, will not
give him a chance.
"What Borfof guys are the players off the field?
Pretty good fellows or"
"It must get to be pretty tiresome before the year
is over. Or do you get used to it?"
"It must be pretty interesting traveling around with
the team and getting to know the players personally.
What sort of a looking fellow is Doyle in citizen's
Tipping It Off.
"Don't forget" writes in J. H. R "that the Athletics
were seven games behind the middle of last July and
yet won the pennant by a twelve game margin. This
showB they ran up a nineteen game margin the last two
months of the year."
We are not wagering any precious iron men that
Mr. Mack's team will not be there again this season. He
still has a great ball club a flashy machine. On the
other hand, don't get the idea into your bean that the
Red Sox are no stronger than the TIgerB were a year
ago. Stahl has the pitching force which Jennings
lacked as great an outfield and a far better infield.
These are minor details worthy of some consideration
A few days ago we saw Brown and Mathewson hook
up in a tight pitching duel. They were moving neck
and neck up through the sixth round, and the suspense
was something terrific. In the seventh, with two on
and two out, Becker, of the Giants, lifted an easy fly to
Schulte, who muffed inglorioualy and then threw badly
to the plate, breaking up the game, as both men scored.
As Schulte walked in the West Sido legion arose
and cheered him lustily applauding generously as if
he had saved the day. This is the system which wins.
If all fans were of this typo better ball would be played
and therefore more enjoyment would be offered all
spectators. In hissing or hooting an earnest athlete for
some bobble, the fanatic takes the soul out of the
player's work and in the end only gets back at himself.
CRISIS COMES AT
"Wonder what system Griff is using?" queries an
exchange. It's a pipe. Winning more games from your
hustling rivals than they can win from you.
For the benefit of those caring for further details
Griff explains hiB system to this effect "the science of
winning names is having fast men who can hit with
enough steady pitching to carry them along. I don't
mean heavy sluggers who can kill the ball, nor all this
Inside brain stuff but people wlio can poke a few out
and then get around. The day of the slow player has
passed. Speed of foot today is aa great a factor or
greater than quick thinking ever was. And quick
thinking is still a big part of the game."
By winning half their remaining games the Giants
force either Cubs or Pirates to tear off abovo three
fourths of their contests to finish in front. This isn't
a cinch proposition, but there is margin enough to cause
Mr. McGraw to yawn and look bored even when a close
decision is handed against him.

CORNELL TEAM" IS
UNDER HEAVY FIRE
President erf Circuit Will Defend
His Star Team Anacostia
up, principal among them being the case
of the Capital City League.
In this circuit is one team, namely,
Cornell, managed by Mr. Cornell, which
is touted as having the best chances
for the amateur gonfalon. Cornell is
one of the best regulated amateur teams
in the District, and has stuck together
through many adversities, tho natural
result being that it is winning baseball
games light and left. Many weaker
teams In other leagues, seeing the supe
riority of Cornell, are beginning to fear
that it will walk away with the cham
pionship, and immediately there oc
curred much buslnes of mud-sllnging.
The result is an attempt to oust Cornell
from tho post-season scries.
DOINGS OF A DAY WITH THE AMATEURS
Failing for the third consecutive time
to put a complete team on the field,
Anacostia, of the Sunday School
League, automatically forfeited its fran
chise in that circuit. But five teams
will finish the schedule, which follows.
Thursday, Nativity vs. Lincoln Ave
nue; Friday, Sherwood vs. Ingram;
Saturday, Lincoln Avenue vs. 'Nativity;
Monday, North Caiollna vs. Sherwood;
Tuesday, Nativity vs. Ingrain.
Indications are that one of the teams
in the Bast Washington Sunday School
circuit will soon drop out. For many
games past it has had difficulty in put
ting a complete team on the field, and
as Ninth Street has a big lead in the
league interest continues to wane.
By defeating the National Athletic
Clut), 4 to 12, Loftier kept its lead in
the Independence League. Pepco Is
the next proposition for the meat
dealers to tackle, and if the elec
tricians are downed today Loffler is
looked to make a win of It in the
"King" Brady did not hit his proper
speed until after the second Inning,
four runs having been scored off of
him up to that time. Loffler had no
trouble finding Shalln and King.
Shalln received an Injury to his "ulna"
bone In the second inning and was
forced to give way to King.
Capital City League.
Y. M. C. A. was no match for Cornell
In the Capital City League, the latter
having registered an 11 to 2 victory.
For the winners, Martin and Priddy
twirled first class games, the two of
them having allowed but six safeties.
In the seventh Inning Y. M. C. A.
seemed to go entirely to pieces, Cor
nell having scored four and three
runs in the seventh und eighth ses

Seventeen to three was the cadence
to which Interior was dealing out de
feats yesterday, Agriculture, of the De
partmental circuit, having been the par
ticular victim. The hitting of Tanslll

sensation of the game, both of them
having connected three times out of

Nativity doubled up tho score on Sher

twirled a superior game for the winners,
while the fielding of Roberts for Sher

for Sherwood, allowing nine safeties,
