In all 121 athletes have signified their intention of being at the mark on Saturday morning when Johnny Gal lagher sends them off on their long Jour ney in the fifth race given under the auspices of The Washington Times and the Baltimore News. It Is not to be supposed that all of the 124 men entered will be at the mark. Several entered have been thrown out on the physical test, and one or two others have bad ankles which will ne cessitate their being entirely out of enmnetition. Others will be faint near ed at the last moment, and decide that they have not had enough training for the race, or in otner woras win oe m. trine laint neartea. There should be more than 100 at the" mark and as last years race from Laurel to Baltimore found 10S men at the mark ready for the starter's gun fully that many should take part in the fourth renewal of the classic. Examination Rigid. The physical examination at the T. M. C. A. on Tuesday was rigid and thorough in every way, that at Balti more is of the same nature- and the few exceptions thrown out of the race need not feel that they have been dis criminated against. In order to insure the athletes against any possible harm it has always been the custom to ex amine every man entering the race in order that he roav be as fully fit and In as good condition as Is possible for his own good. All of the officials from Washington are asked to be on hand at the Ebbltt House Cafe on Saturday morning at 7:30 a. m. so that the automobiles may be gotten under way in plenty of time to get the boys straightened out at Laurel in time to start at 10 o'clock. Breakfast will be served at the Ebbltt and the machines will start for the Maryland town at S o'clock. Three trains are leaving the city for Laurel, which will take the runners. The first at 7:30. the next at 8 o'clock and the last at 8:30 o'clock win get he men at Laurel In time for a comfortable margin before the race. Any later train will rush Udngs before the race. Hotel To Be Heady. Runners will repair to the Laurel Hotel, where Proprietor Selling has prepared things in readiness for the big crowd. Rooms will be at the dis posal of the athletes, and there will be a rubbing room set aside for the men who are desirous of getting their mus cles touched up before the race. When the runners are dressed and ready they will take their suit cases to John Kelly, who will represent The Washington Times. He will give the boys their competitor's numbers and will receive all suit cases. No bundles of clothes will be received, and athletes should have their street clothes properly placed In bags or suit cases. The suit cases and other bags will be taken to the Luber Turkish Bath, In the RiRgs building. Fifteenth and G streets, where the athletes will receive them after the race. None of the boys, other than the runners, will be allowed In the Turkish bath after the race, so it will be Impossible to gain admission unless a Times-News marathon official badge la worn.

By "SENATOR." Jay Carl Cashlon is believed now to be fit and ready for the clang of the bug gong, announcing the opening of big league hostilities. He went through a whole game yesterday against Joe Kelley's Toronto champions and walked six. fanned Ave, and allowed but seven hits. The Climbers ran away from the Canadians, 13 to 2, even letting the Plmlentas come Into the fray for the last four frames. As a ball game well, sh-h-h, go easy on that title. It was a massacre. Eleven runs came over in the first four sessions, everybody falling on Rudolph mercilessly. They belted and banged his benders to the distant points of the landscape, Carl Cashlon and Hank Shanks poling homers. When young Brant, a Red Sox cast-off, took up the duties of the mound in the fifth, he got along well enough, but Frank Laporte hammered a homer to left center that was a soaring swallow.

Johnny Beall, the clouting gardener. will b sent to Milwaukee or Toledo to make room for Spencer. Judging from comparative work here, Spencvr is a better outfielder than Johnny Beall. Jack Graney, or "Nemo" Leibold, now with the Naps. Spencer was mentioned as a possible Nap last summer, but just when the deal was about to go through his bat ting fell out frightfully and de devel oped a lnhlt of loating on hits. To make matters worse, Ed Hohnliorst fell down as a first oaseman with the Nap3 and ho Doc Johnston was taken from the Pelicans to patch up the infield in Cleveland tipencei was left here. McKay Is Ready To Face Pardello Big Fred McKay, who is to go on at the Lyceum tonight against Leo Par dello, the Italian heavyweight, stated today that he believes he will be lc torlous. In this, one of the most Im portant matches in which he has been a contender. "I know that Pardello Is among the best in our weiRht." said McKay, "but I have trained strenuously for this three rounds, and think I am In the best condition of my career. This bout is to be of the catch-as-catch-can style, and It will go to a finish Pardello is one of the fasteJt h'-avy weight athletes now before the public, his style being to always start with a rush and keep up a rapid-fire pj-ce throuRhout his contest. For tills lejt-on Manager Mayer selec ted him to be pitted against McKay, who Is wald to be ii fast worker.

These are the busy days for "Per duke" Fowler, the Climbers' business manager. Not only Is he In charge ot the arrangements at the local park, but he is booking tho coming tour of the Climbers through the American League. -Handling the business details of a major league club is no child's play, take it from "Perduke." record held by Emory Enzor Is going by the boards. Good, for Gallaudet. Let's hand this Gallaudet team a little boost. The Kendall Greeners have been In quiet preparation for about a week, and Jumped over to the Hilltop yester day and handed the Blae and Gray team the scare of Its life. Going hltless for seven innings, the Gallaudet players got In four runs toward the close of the game. It was a good rally and worthy of consideration. Watch the pitchers. Take a look at the pitchers In the high school series this year. Eastern has Johnson, Western has Brewer and Nicholson, Business uncorks Kelly, while Tech has Defandorf. Central may get Taggert.

Marshall praises the honesty of organized base hall in a letter to B. B. Johnson, pres ident of the American League. After acknowledging the receipt of an en graved annual pass, the Vice Presi dent says: "I am deeply Interested In baseball because It Is a fascinating game. De cause It is the great American sport, and. because it sets an example to the business and professional men of Ameri ca which Is as valuable as the preach ments of politicians, namely, that no success is lasting or permanently val uable which does not result from play ing the game on the square. Tho dirt accumulated on the baseball diamond is clean. A Democrat cannot say that for all other diamond In America-' Snow Stops Opening.. MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., April 19.

"Long Bob" Ewing. former ly with the Cincinnati and Philadelphia National League teams, has signed with the Minneapolis, club. Welcome, Manager Chancel Today Frank Chance makes his debut as an American Leaguer. He has had a long and most sucessful career In the National League. Nothing but the shortsightedness and personal vanit of Charlie Murphy drove him out of the league. He Is more than welcome in the American League and the Washing ton fans will let him know It before he leaves town. Marshall Is right. Vice President Marshall is rlgl t w hen he declares baseball to tie absolutely above suspicion. It survives even the attacks of such as Horace Fogel and Charlie Murphy from within the ranks, not to mention those addlepated ones who Rok with distrust at whatever the other fellow docs. Mr. Marshall, you are correct Establishes record. In passing it mlKht be well to look at Cornell's freak record for a moment.
