Generally the Navy eleven develops slowly and Is not right until well jnto November. Jim Rellly. the old Tale star, coach of the Washington and Lee eleven last fall., will coach the tailors this year, and will probably try to speed up his players for this game. Willi Jim Thorpe out of the way, Georgetown may be able to surprise the Carlisle team. The Olympic hero was the whole thing last fall at the Hilltop.

Ruth Establishes a Record for Twice Winning Race and Making Marks. Not a single athlete who participated in the long grind from Laurel to Wash ington through the rain and mud in the fourth renewal of the famous Times News marathon race is today a wit the worse for his experience. After the race had been run through twenty miles of rain and mud, and the athletes were visited at the Luber Turkish bath no one complained of feel ing bad or in poor condition despite the fact that many found the going too much for them after they struck the mud this side of Hyattesville. Runners, officials, and spectators of tlje fifth Times-Nows marathon race to day combine in voting the event the most sensational ever run under the auspices of The Times and The News. The fourth renewal of the greatest race in this section of the country was none the less exciting because It was run under the most adverse weatheri conditions, none the less attractive to! those who braved the rain to watch it along the route, or those who showed stamina and stick-to-ltlveness enough to see the run through from Laurel to the Munsej Building in Washington. Frank Ruth, the Baltimore Cros3 Country Club runner, who last year In scribed Ills name with those of Enzur, Mahoney and Elphlnstnne, again dem onstrated that he is the best distancer In either Baltimore or Washington. Ruth proved himself a heady runner, a gamester to the core. Timing his sprint to a nicety, he bore down on the leader, Hltschew. nt Secnth and Pennsylvania aenuc, after he had trailed for morn than nineteen milts, and burst to the tape as though he were linlshing a 100 vard dash. Hlteshew was invincible for more than j nineteen miles, maintaining a pace that' fought off all 'ompetltors. and was forced to relinquish his hold on llrst r.lace nnlv after Ruth had taken his heart out in a gruelling brush less than a half mile from the tlnisn. il was men easy for Johnny Bolac. the Carroll In stitute runner, to breeze on by Hlte shew, and the real race to the tap was made bv BoIpc, who was but 20 seconds behind the winner. Stirring Struggle. This struggle down Pennsylvania ave nue from the Peace Monument was the most stirring of all the races yet held. At no time during the race could the winner be picked for both Ruth and Bolac looked good enough to win Jll along the puddled. mudd road from Haltcsllle to the Catholic UnlvcrsltJ and It was not until Bolac moiod up on Freddie Haer that it was noticed just how hot the pace was getting o jjst what these runners had in store for the final burst to the tape. Ruth, however, has done what no other runner has been able to accom plish. He h.i twice won the Times News marathon race. He holds the retord from Laurel to Baltimore and alo has come in to this city trom laurel in bettei time than "111 other lunnci In a Times-News race. hue the toiirKe Is not the same as that taken b Knzr. the rei ord holder, the time made i.s nevertliele.ss a record.

The start was made at 11.20 fioni the I-iurel Hotel, and the pace at the vei v cruck of the gun was of the kind that pre saged but a small percentage of the starters who would be abb. to stand the fast work that was cut out for them. lwis It. Hlteschrw immediately too the lead and led through Beltsville He was followed b Ruth. Baei. Bolac, Williams. Srofleld, and Hcaly, and the procession followed in this order until Athletes leaving starting point at Laurel, Md. the runners got well under way to the Maryland Aggies experimental station, the second checking station. The field strung ount alone the road, keeping up a good pace and paying no attention to the driving rain. Find Good Roads. All through the eleven miles to Hy attsville the runners encountered good road conditions, and it was not until the turn was taken Into Hyattsvllle that the bad going made fast time Impos sible. The road was knee decn In water and mud. and the runners were forced, man times to bravely plow through, mud holes and quagmires in order to make the going. Just this side of Hyattsvllle. near the Rams Horn Inn, tnanv of the run ners came to grief. The going was miserable, and the road in places for jards was entirely under water. Hits chew maintaining a lead over Ruth by a quarter of a mile, stuck gamely to It and looked for all like a winner when the men came through to the bet ter going, near Catholic University. Taking the Lincoln road down to North Capitol and Florida avenue, the men were checked off with Hltschew leading. Ruth was second and Bolac ,had come strong, nosing out McKenna. who was followed by Healy. Just be fore this point was reached Scofield and Williams. Washington men. collapsed. Reduce Speed. Between the Catholic University and the last checking station many of the runners were forced to slow down tv a walk while Bolac, Ruth, and Hltschew raced on for the finish line. The real race developed between the three first men from the Peace Monument, and Ruth landed with a burst of speed that was too much for the fast approaching Bolac. The winner's time was better than that made by Emory P. Enzor over the old course, which led In through the Contee road to Beltsvllle and from there In over the course which was to have been pursued yesterday Forty-three men qualified for medals as they finished inside an hour after the winner had crossed the line. Out of the fifteen men starting In the Washington contingent nine qualified for meda'.s and of these four were nmong the first ten. Bolac, Healy. Hol land, and Royall, who ran for the Bal timore C C C, were the Washington boys among the first eleven who quali fied for the gold and silver medals. After the race was finished the ath letes were piled In taxis and taken to the Luber Turkish baths at Fifteenth and G streets, where the) were given BOB THAYER'S SPORTING GOSSIP "EVERY KNOCK A grand race.

Cots were i provided for the runners, who took I things easy until they were ready to come to ciaim tneir prizes, a. u. Lamer took charge of the runners and saw that they were properly cared for. Many of the athletes called after the race and said that they were royally treated at the baths and that everything possible that could be desired was given them. It was stated that the conditions of the race this year made the going al most impossible at times, but that the treatment and care given at the baths afterward more than made up for the trouble encountered along the road. Ruth, the winner of the race, was the hero of the day He ran the same heady race that marked his win last year. "I cut out my pace from the start and held it throughout," said Ruth. "I was naturally anxious to win the race the second time, and am glad that I was able to land It for Baltimore. T figured that If I could trail the leader up to the Capitol grounds I could make up In my sprint. I was never In dis tress, and had lots to spare at the finish." Bolac was able to win second, just as he did last year. "The race was faster than I expected." said Bolac. "and I started my sprint too late. If we had had a longer distance I think I could have won out, as I was going well at the finish." Healj. the Carroll Institute runner, came through In good Fhape. Last year he was twentieth and moved up to fourth place. Had the Carroll Institute run ners been uble to put another runner in the race the Baltimore Cross Coun try Club would have been hard pushed for the team trophy Win Team Trophy. Ruth. Royall. Schmenner. Arntz. anil Meyers were the winners of the team trophy, with first, eighth. eleenth. twelfth, and thirteenth places to their credit. The Carroll Institute qualified four with Bolac.
