13 V 'I " ! - ' ' " l " Gandils' Failure Boosts Chances of Y.M.C.A.Cartwright Out Baltimore Drops A.C.B. A. V V r. M. C. A. GAINS AS ANUS m m IN AW LEAGUE Those Teams Are Now on Even - Terms and a Grand Battle to Finish' Can Be Expected. BAUM'S ' LADS OFF FORM Nationals Get Two Out of Three as Its Members Put Up Fast : Duckpin Exhibition. , ' By KIRK C. MILLER. , Thai, Y. M. C. A. team, of the Ar cada League today has the best op portunity 'in weeks to assert itself in the aiypiment which has been close between three teams, in that circuit for 'the past two months its chance coming in the downfall of Gandils when .Nationals were en countered Tuesday night. Johnny Baum's proteges were far off of their stride fn' that National set and the latter took two out of three ig'ames -before the .home team could catch ttV Wreath catcn its Dream. -The Arcade race has been centered in the Y. M. C. A., Gandils, and Hess teams for many weeks,, and indeed those three teams have been alter nating 'in the leadership position. Until' last night, Gandils have been in front by a fair margin, but the sur prise which was thrown into them by the" Nationals, brought them on even terms with Captain Whitford's crew, and from this out the race can be' expected to be fast and furious;' ., . Two facts- are responsible for the vic tory which the Nationals recorded at the expensf ot the Gandils. . first and probably most Important is the extra high class of work displayed by the Nationals and second Is the poor form displayed by Gandils after the llrst round. Throughout the last two.. games the pins simply seemed to go against ithe Gandils, despite the efforts of Its members to boost their marks. , 'For th Nationals, credit should be evenly distributed amongthe- Ave men who competed for the two wins. Cullln and Quillin were particularly respon- .sible, as each of these rollers had at! least two games which went well over the loo-mark. Cullln's 121 In tho third was high' Individual game for tho set, and Qulllln, with 1UU, -was 'second high In that respect. ' Capt. George H. Post, of the La fayette team, rises to a point ot order following the boast of Capt. Harvey Rogers that his Stansbury team will walk away with the Masonic League pnnant this season. Post points with pride to the three games which La layette won from Lebanon Monday night and to the three new league rec ords which were established by his fol lowers. Monday night's three victories made the winning record of Lafayette eleven straight out of the last twelve rolled, and these give the team a record ot 19 games won and 5 lost, with a per- centage of .752. Incidentally. It brings 'Port's team within 8 points of Captain Rogers' Stansbury lads, and Post be lieves Rogers' warning should be re versed.

Western Will Try Luck In W inning Thirteenth Red and White -Team Journeys .to Alexandria in En deavor to Break Record Made by Business Team This Year Other School Gossip.' By BRYAN MORSE. Western High School basketball players are journeying to Alexan dria today to try and break the record established by Business earlier in the season. The Red and White lads with a victory over the George town Preps by 45 to 9 in yesterday's game are continuing their schedule today in taking on the Alexandria High School bunch, and hope to win their thirteenth straight game of the Beason. Business went for twelve straight winB and in tackling Wesetrn on the attempt to win the thirteenth contest, fell down. Western believes it has luck when flirting around the number thirteen as many things have gone the way of the Red and White when- than number has beencon nected with any activities. i If Alexandria cancels the Westerners will probably be forced to lay off until next week as the game scheduled for Friday at the Army will probably be called off on account of the Virginia-George Washington game. A glance at the record of th Red end White team Is of Interest, In view of the fact that the Red and White team was kicked around by all the other schools last season. Peck and Peine, now starring for the Red and White, got In a season of hard knocks, and have only recently come Into their own. The team has won twenty-one games and lost tour, in all the battles, S89 points have been scored, an average of 35 per contest. With the defeat ot Eastern recently, every school team in the city has been walloped, and the team has struck Its stride and main tained it so evenly that predictions are out that the five will take the Inter scholastic title this year. St. Alban Is lodging a kick today against the Eastern High School bas. Ifftball team on account of the fact that the Kasterners not only failed to lmw un fur thp contest at St. Alban but would not postpone tho battle. The i St. Alban manager called Eastern up early In the day and tried to call oir I the game. Eastern. It is said, refused 'in nntlnnno the Imttle. Later In the da? the Easterns failed to put In an appearance, and when the .-hrwii toifnlinnpcl It was reported tlmt the. hnRketbHll Olivers, with others i.mhrlnn fnrt v. were OUt DlaVillR base ball. This Is the second time East em has disappointed in basketball con tests. Friends' School having com plained that the Usht Blue and White plaers ducked their engagement with them last week.

While the first team ilayers perform ed for the Red and White, the Preps IN IWMNTu Grab Ten Victories in Two Days, Featuring Five Different Sporting Events. ANNAPOLIS. Feb. 24. Probably no other collegiate Institution In the coun try can equal the record of the repre sentatives of the Naval Academy of hnvliTir inins this winter won five con tests on one dav in as many different branches of athletics. This is what mo midshipmen accomplished on Saturday. Fehrimrv fi. and also on last Saturday: Three of Its teams wrestling, gymnas tic and swimming have not been de feated this year, and expect to end the season with a clean record, while a fourth- zlng-haa not lost tn any Intercoli rflate team. The basketball team, which completes its seaaon toaay, with Washington and" Lee as an oppon ent, has been defeated only by Yale and Cornell, the latter wlnnlnr by a single point. , . A great athletic triumph wos won by the Navy lads Saturday. Five victories were won. und In one sport only were tho midshipmen seriously pressed, and overwhelmlne victories were won In two contests. Besides, the Navy's opponents stand high In the athletic world. They were Yale (two sports). University of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania State Col lege, and Johns Hopkins. In wrestling against the University of Pennsylvania the midshipmen won every bout four on clean falls and three on decisions. Swimming against Johns Hopkins, they took first nnd second place In every event, and they scored a decishe vie tory ovr the Yale gymnasts, the score being 34 to 20. Pennsylvania State gave an excellent exhibition of the passing game In basketball, the Navy's victory Jieing by X! to 24. Smith and Adams, the Navy s fast forwards. and oveiescn. tne football captain, a glaid on the basketball five, played strongly. It was with the foil. However, tnat the midshipmen had their, closest call. After they had won three bouts, Ynle suddenlv came to life, and won four In succession. The midshipmen set tled down, however, and won the match bv taking the two final contests. How ever, the midshipmen's superiority In total -hits ecored was more marked. 'the basketball season ends today, hut on next Saturday there will be another big program ef sports at the Academy. Columbia athletes will meet the Navy swimmers and gymnasts. The Univer sity of Penpw'vrnla will send a feii'in,; team to Annapolis, and Yale will try conclusions on the wrestling tnat. Tno big event for Ma -eji 6 Is to be a tri angular gyniMstlc tournament, in which Princeton nnd the University of Penn sylvania will oppose the Naval Acad emy. On Mii s.ti.it date, Cornell wi'l send wrestling ii'id nv't -mlrig teem1: to Annapolis, in I 'lumbla will send its tencers. The K innistt ' ea'on will end with the big meet op Saturday. Match 6. and the swlnvnliij -"t'l wrestling teouw will finish for the yea- on the follow lug Saturduy, Prlncetpn being the opponent In both cases. Arother event for that day will be a fencing match ag-i'nst the foilsmen of Cornell. One of the strong leasons for the excellence of the midshipmen In thpne indoor branches of sport Is due to the system by which athletic tialniug and preparation becomes a pait of the mili tary routine. Kach midshipman Is re quired to cIiuosl ooiue binucli of sport in which to engage, and when he has made his Miolee, attendance upon prac tice and observation of lules of ti. lin ing aic is much i- port of his dut iii" nttcndnni i upon drills or Mshcj TIiIh net tOKUVl villi tn c I'Plleiit li'.l'lU' tots and f.u lIUIcs furniaheil, .u -counts for the high degree of pro ficiency shown by Naval Academy team. MIDDY ATHLETES WIN were unable to score a point so close ly wero they guarded. The first half ended with an 18 to 0 score In favor of Western. "Molly" Johnson, Bob Hardell, Pat Rooney and one or tvo other Tech boys will enter a relay in the George town maet according to Information given out today. The Tech young sters have had hard luck with track this season, although Rooney landed a first in the Q. W. U. meet. Just what handicaps the Washing ton athletes will receive In the Georgetown eamri Is problematical Handicanner Knirland earned for him self a deal of ndverst crlticlsri In setting the Washington youngsters hack near tho scratch mark In the Hopkins games. Boys who had ap peared in hut one or two races were give a yard, or two on such stars as Pat terson and 1-lplncott of Penn. As an instance of some weird dop ing the case of Crawford Carter, of St. Alban. Is cited. Carter ran second to George Uacon in the G. W. U. games In the mile event from the 10 sard mark. Bacon won the race and on the next Saturday Handlcap per England gave Carter but 25 ards on Bacon, a drop of 15 yards, when Bacon had beaten the yuongster the week before. Bacon was the scratch nan In both meets. The Gontaga team and the A. N. A. quints are duo for a league battle at Georgetown today, according to the dope. It will be the first appearance for both teams In some time. Gon yaga har, been out of basketball on account of faculty ruling, while the A. N. A. boys have been hard hit by examinations.
