Central High Principal Says
Principal Emory Wilson Says He
Is Open to Conviction, But
As Yet Fails io Enthuse.
All Teams Are Anxious to Get
Out, So That Others Can Be
! Sized Up.
Central High School will have no
.crew on the Potomac this year that Is
not unless some of the students who
are backing the project are able to
present their case to Principal Emory
"Wilson more favorably than they have.
Not that Principal "Wilson Is not open
to conviction, for years of active In
terest in all forms of athletics at Cen
tral .have given him a broad outlook
on the athletic side of the boys train
ing; He Is perhaps as well known a
'figure In high school athletics as any
other principal, has followed all of his
own teams closely, and those of other
hlgli schools, and Is In a position to
know of what he Is talking about
"I cannot see how we can put out a
crew this year and did not know any
thing of a Central High School crew
other than the fact that one or two
boys who are interested In rowing
came to me and spoke something of
crew work," said Mr. Wilson.
Forced to Affiliate.
"We would be forced to affiliate with
acme crew here In the city, the Poto
mac Club is the only one at present
that we could hook up with and undar
the circumstances I cannot see how
we can take ithe matter up.
"Of course. I am open to conviction.
hut unless the case is put up more
strongly than it has been we will have
no crew. At present there are enough
activities In athletics in the school and
we have our hands full recruiting for
baseball and track In the spring."
It would seem that the report that
Jim Sprigman will take fhS? f,",
baseball team next week Is at this time
unfounded. Sprigman says he has re
ceived no overtures from Central and
has made no offer to take charge or
the team. In. this event the report com
ing from one Jn authority seems to be
mithnut the ken of SDrigman.
In a week the high schools expect to
be out in the first practices for the
baseball teams. It is a bit early to get
a line on just what will comprise, me
rosters of .the teams to compete for the
championship flag.
All of the boys are certain that a
better article of baseball will be fur
nished this season due to the fact that
American League Park 'has been ob
tained for' the annual series. Thn
games, for the most part were played
at Union League Park last season un
der m conditions anything but desirable.
. Tech Is Ready.
Now that the park is assured-for the
Semes the teams are all confident that
the games will be more attractive. In
teresting and closely fought. Tech is
preparing to come back for another
crack at the baseball pennant, in the
'event that the Maroon and Gray takes
this year's title It will have won for the
third year, in succession.
Tech Is suffering from the same old
complaint with a list of Hunkers as
other schools at present. The boys are
aiilxously putting extra time trying to
get their conditions oil so that tney
may be eligible to play thU season.
Western on the other hand after
two times being nosed out of the title
by the manual trainers Is anxious.
. under Coach Dave White to take the
high school title. But one or two men
are out of the line-up this season and
capable players are expected to fill
In their places.
Business To Be There.
Rest assured Business High School
is going to be away at the start. The
Stenographers have gotten a taste of
victory this year for the first time in
many seasons, "With a good football
team and a basketball team that
Glassed with any of the others this
winter, the Rhode Island avenue
school boys believe that they can put

the championship won several sea
sons ago.
Eastern remains an unknown quan
tity. Coach Hatch has already had
several tryouts on Capitol Hill with
his boys and while the material is
not all out yet a fairly good line can
be gotten on the boys.
Boxers and Managers

NEW YORK. March L The State
