on the Hilltop this afternoon.
Te'majority of the men whoran In the

Cages Four Goals by Himself
When Washington Wins
From Baltimore All-Stars.
Before the wonderful rushing of Eddie
Whiting, the Baltimore All-Stars faded
away last night at the Arcade, 5 to 0.
This demon pololst shoved four goals
into the tally sheet all of his lonesome,
and was by far the best man on the
floor. Baltimore never had a chance,
and the large crowd wen tlnto ecstasies
over Washington's victory.
Millar and Frazler showed some class

to pound the ball through the stonewall
defense of Kooken, Washington's crack
goal tender. Summary of the clash:

ANNAPOLIS. Teb. 1. The friends of
the Naval Academy basketball team feci
that a victory over Lehigh this ufter
noon will furnish strong grounds for
the claim to the Eastern supremacy.
The Naval lads are the undoubted
Southern champions by virtue of their
triumphs this season, while Lehigh has
defeated Cornell, which stands at the
head of the Inter-collegiate Basketball
League. Under thete circumstances. It Is
felt that a lctory for the midshipmen
will establish their leadership In the
Eastern Held.
This will bo tho only sporting event
for today, but February will bo a keen
month for sports of various klnjls. It
is doubtful If there Is any institution
In the country which will present so
fine a bill of sports during the coming
month. It will begin Saturday, Feb
ruary 8, with a fine program. In the
afternoon, tho basketballcrs will oppose
Swarthmore. while tho fencers will
cross foils with tho New York Fencing
Club. Later in the afternoon there
will be a swimming match against the
Washington Young Men's Christian As
sociation, and In the evening there will
be gymnastic and wrestling matches
against the representatives of Colum
bia. An event in the athletic life of the
Academy will be the Inauguration of
soccer as a competitive sport. The
game was started last year under the
direction of Captain Dalton, of the regu
lar football team, but there were no
matches. This year there will he a
series of inter-class matches. On Feb
ruary 6, the first and second classes
will contest, and on February 13. the
third and fourth classes will meet. The
llnal match for the class championship
will take place on February 27. Next
season. It Is honed to havo sonic
matches with outside teams.
On every other Saturday during tho
month, there will be two or mora In
teresting eveffts. The basketball season
will close on February 22. Georgetown
