Western High Crack Goes
To Georgetown This Fall
TO BIHD GRAY
. 'Western High School Sprinter
Decides to Enter George
town on October 1.
HAS GREAT TRACK RECORD
Acknowledged Best Schoolboy.
' Lands Many Honors and
By BRYAN MORSE.
Edmund L. Jones, Western High
School track captain of last year, and
perhaps the best sprinter ever develop
ed In the high schools, will matriculate
at Georgetown University on October 1.
Jones has been sought by several of
the big colleges on account of the fact
that he has repeatedly turned the hun
dred in een time. It was reported
that he would enter Swarthmore. and
later that the University of Virginia
would" 'get him. Jones is thought to be
the. pick of all the sprinters developed
In the prep schools in the country this
ear with the possible exception o
Jiomnson, the .Mercersburg flyer.
Last year Jones captained the Western
High .School track .team and sprang
Into prominence the year before with
a win In the 100-yard dash. He went
Into all of the track meets In this sec
tion kof the country and had no diffi
culty in landing the 10J, 20. aha broad
Last spring for the first time in his-
. lory Central High School was pushed
out of the tieSd and track championship
. of the Washington High Schools, and
"Nubby" Jones was the youth who
almost. alone and single-handed scored
a. win for the Ked ana wnne.
At Satterlee Field, the Cathedral
School for Boys athletic field, Jones
Ijnlshed bis remarkable scholastic
career by running the final quarter in
the- relay conceding a" Central boy
something like torty-five yards and
after a game exhibition winning the
race in what -was. estimated as some
thing like 61 flat for his race.
Jones has done exceptionally well
In the sprints and has been unbeatable
in th iL 2!0. and HO. and" also has
proven himself, a broad Jumper of no 4
Not since the days when Dick Dear,
the famous Central High School sprint
er, galloped off with all the prizes in
the sprints in this section has a sprinter
like Jones been developed. Coach Jimmy
"Mulligan, of Georgetown, brought Jones
out last year and Is likely to again
handle the phenom this, season,
AVlth Jones for the dashes, and Hortar
and Stebblns, the Blue and Gray, relay
team has, a grand start for the coming
vear. Stebblns Is expected' In town to
day while Horter, who toured the con
tinent this summer sailed from Naples
Friday for this city.
Followers of football on the Hilltop
are wondering tpday how long It will
' be before the football squad assumes
proportions large -enough to warrant
some real work. Despite the fact that
the-call for candidates has been out Tor
more than two Weeks, but ten men
showed up yesterday on the Hilltop.
The college opened last Wednesday,
and while the law and dental schools do
not get under way for some time yet,
it fa honed that some action will be
gotten before that time. Certain it is
that the initial practice on the Hilltop
yesterday was poorer in numbers than
any other recorded.
A year -ago something like thirty-five
men were out when Jack Hegarty took
charge with Coaches Bennls and Gar
gan. Yesterday less than a dozen re
sponded to the call, but four men being
veterans from last year's eleven. Bar
ron, Petretz. Martin Foley, and Mur
rav were the only players who have
seen service on the Blue and Grey eleven
of those out running around yesterday.
It will be a matter of a few days be
fore the others get into line, as the
veterans are somewhat reticent about
getting into action until they look over
the others. By the end of the week
something like fifty players will be in
action on the hilltop, and Coaches Gar
gan and Hart will have their hands full
from now on.
Capt Harry Costello has been held
up In getting East, ana will be on the
field today to take charge with the
coaches. "Cos" arrived last night, and
looks the picture of health. He speaks
In glowing terms of his summer on the
3Ilnnesota lakes, and promises to show
something this season.
There is no dening the fact that
Gargan and Hart are anxiously look
ing them over for line material. Witn
Dave White and Jack Hegarty gone
and nothing from last jar's Miuad
available for the tackle positions con
siderable alarm is felt at the utter
lack of suitable material for these
positions. Unless the incoming class
fchows something in the way of tackles

We shudder to think" of the shock that would befall itoyston, Ga., and

The blue-ribboned border in batting isn't the .300 eye, but the 200-hit
mark. Thrr e hundred batters are fairly common, 'but last season there
were only five to reach or pass 200 hits. They were Cobb, Jackson, Speak

ThiB season the 00 order will be pruned still further. Speaker needs
but sixteen additional hits, starting with Monday's count Jackson needs
twenty-one. The National hasn't anyone vith the chance as Daubert leads,
and Jake the Dodger needs thirty-seven more hits with only twenty games
to play. Compiling thirty-seven hits in twenty battles can be done .but it's
a highly technical undertaking at best.
Speaker Is pow close enough to catch -Cobb in two days. Just as he
caught Jackson from Thursday to Saturday of last week, so in place of

Yost and Dublin.
Kurry-Up Yost, the Wolverine coach, on his way from Europe to Ann
Arbor, was telling us about his trip. He recounted incidents in a num
ber of cities, but we noticed that he seemed to have a warm spot in his
heart for Dublin, Ireland.
We woul discuss Paris briefly and then get back to Dublin. Mention
London artd then insert a Dublin anecdote. We had just about made up
our mind that he was the most loyal Irishman we had ever known
when he cut in again: "Yes, I had a great time in Dublin; you can't beat
it. I was in Dublin when I got my first copy of the 1913 football rules,
mailed over by the committee." Which, as anyone who knows Colonel
Yost upon the verge of a football campaign will understand, was the an
swer to Dublin.
If Colonel Yost would get some one to talk football with in Fjord,
Norway, that "place for him would be the garden spot of Europe.
Washington, in 1900, beat Cleveland out of a pennant by taking the
last eight out of ten games. She beat Cleveland out of another chance at
the pennant in 1913 by taking the last eight straight, if not more. When
one city in the pinch epoch can rise up and take sixteen out of eighteen

If tire Browns finish last, the two St Louis clubs should stage an upside

The Mackmen are not hitting the ball as lustily as In former years,
but t'oing back they have yet to meet a club coming forward.
