ft RECORD HI IS, ON HAND FOR BIG AMATEUR CONTEST Marines and Machinists Play Before Gathering At Union Station Grounds. DOLEMAN WINS BATTLE Immanuel Catcher Drives Home Winning Run in Tight Game With Rosedale. By BRYAN MORSE. What was easily the season's rec ord in baseball crowds and perhaps one of the largest gatherings ever seen here at an amateur baseball contest looked on at yesterday's Ma rines-Machinists contest. Conserva tive estimate places the gathering at 6,500 although many who are in the habit of doping out such thing3 said there were more than 7,000. The grounds east of Union Sta tion were encircled ten deep in places, every available spot around the outfield and along the base lines was occupied and every vantage point on walls, roofs and sheds was packed. Difficulty in handling the crowd was experienced and President Winslow, of the Terminal Y. M. C. A., said that at future gatherings there would be better provision for the fans. Amateur Association officials have about concluded that the tie game of last Saturday between the Machinists and Marines will be played at the Union Station and that the Held will be roped off. The few pollcCrhen present yesterday were of no avail against the crowd, which would not be denied and at times it was almost Impossible for a runner to round cither nrat or tnira base, so eager were the fans to get In the came. These same fans saw the Marines Jump Into' the lead of Bcotion A, by an k to S win. which elves them the jump on all of the others and makes them a hot favorite for not only a win or. xne KcrHnti A aeries but the final series for the city title and the right to meet the Kicnmona winner, rimiinppv" Oleott. the Marines' hurler, proved to be shining luminary of the battle. Oleott got two hits and was on the bases ell the time as he was picked to run for Murphy ana a me .Machinists naa me cnoice 01 a ruimci, iilMrnri nirntt. Aside from this imDOSl- tion the Machinist took their beating -i!i o-rvrtrt crap Oleott. however, had the best of "Lefty" Kuhnert and while u trltie wilder, steadied under fire and delivered to the satisfaction of most of the funs. . . , A big Inning for the Marines settled the contest, xne score was uea up nt 4 ail in the third and Machinists got ahead by a run in the fourth. In the final half of the fifth the Marines whalled the life out of Kunnert ror lour tallies and as-the teams had agreed to uuit the field at 7 o'clock, Umpire jjetts: caned on tne proceedings. While the Marines were cinching the Section A series the Aggies were get ting away with a 4 to 1 contest from Keller in the other split or tne series. Lem Owens again came to Nods' res cue and held the Keller outfit hltless in the final session. The battle was well played through out. The pitching was good. In that tne batters were held to but few blngles. Aggies got into the scoring in the second session with a run and followed It up with two more in the next inning. The Keller outfit made a bid to score in the final session, but Owens came through with some steady worn and shut tnem out. "Doggie" Doleman, whose hitting has been a feature of the series so far, shot a single to left in the final frame of yesterday's Keller-Immanuel battle and won the contest for the churchmen. Rosedale and Immanuel put up a fine exhibition and the" pitchers, Cor nell, for Rosedale, and Oessford, for immanuei, gave a cievor exhlDltlon. The Rosedale players were on their cwn Krounds, which may account for i;eir nne Dattie. immanuel was hard put to It for a win and came through only on Boleman's drive i Section standings among the amateurs in tno post-season games follow: SECTION A.

That the 1915 gonfalon is apparent when strength. Just as certain European want of ammunition, so are certain for the want of reserves. The Red admirable extra men as much as for "Pants" Rowland, Hughey Jennings up in the srrlndinar strueorla because taken any particular notice of the extra baggage being carried by the Red Sox? If not. you will da. well of Bill Carrigam's success. No. matter whether Hoblittel or Sox have a .290 hitter in the line-up. Hobby is right at the mark and Gainer has two above it. Both are smooth fielders and the team is not weakened in the least by the absence of either. Jack Barry is more than holding his own at second, but Hal Jamvrin can fill In for him in case of Injury. Barry's .230 hitting mark is not remarkable, but Janvrin clouts at .288. With Janvrln Everett Scott keeps the fans on their though his hlttinsr Is very weak. Larry Gardner is a capable third base man, but Janvrin has replaced him prospects of the team. The outfield business, but Del Gainer has played center field In fine style this year. Bill Corrlgan depends largely upon George Poster, Joe Wood, Xrnle Shore, Babe Ruth, and Dutch Leonard for mound performance and this quintet has won fifty-six games among themselves, as against twenty-three defeats. But don't forget that, If one or two happen to weaken under the strain, there are capable extra men waiting to Jump In. Ray Colllns.ls still able to hold his own against most big league batters. Vean Qregg Is becoming a fine pitcher, for finishing games, though he Is hardly strong enough to go the distance. Carl Mays, with his underhand shoots, Is coraldered most promising and Is fre quently used In a relief capacity. He haa been In twonty-eight games, though having but three victories to six defeats, showing that he haa. figured In nineteen othor contests. Ray Collins has figured In ten more games tMfcn his wln-and-lost record shows. For pinch hitters Olar Henrlksen Is always dangerous. Chester Thomas, the big- catcher, has a .266 batting average for sixty-five games. Babe Ruth Is , second to Ty Cobb, with .370, and frequently appears In cinches. Hobby and Gainer also come up in tight places and frequently deliver the foods. With Cady doing most of the work behind tho bat, the Red Box have a catcher hit ting for .828 In the game most of the time. It Is difficult to pick a flaw In either tho offense or defense of the league leaders. Boston haa the beat-bal-unced ball club in the American league. Just such a machine as that which mowed Us way through all opponents in 1911 and closed, Its -triumphal march by winning the world's championship from McGraw and his Giants. The weak hitting bf Ty Cobb and Sam Crawford during the last couple of weeks has brought the Tigers down a bit In their club batting figures, the Red Sox replacing them in the leadership. Crawford is approaching the .100 mark dangerously fast, but he Is expected to pick up a bit and finish around .330 for his season's efforts. . - i "U. B. A." Marshall, promoting the comlne Mike Glbbona-Packey MeFar land bout In New York, will rank with Snowy Baker and Jack Curley If he pulls a 160,000 gate. But you can't find a sporting authority In the country who will predict that Marshall will even clear expenses. Some go farther rn saying that Marshall won't get enough money to cover tne $31,000 guaran tee to the main waits performers. Gibbons' style Is not popular In New York, or anywhere else, while McFarland has not appeared In a ring for two years. Do your own guessing as" ho the kind of bout it will be. Tennis Master Shows Improvement in Form v Norris Williams Is Expected to Defeat Johnston and McLoughlin Is Looked Upon As Being Able to Trounce Wallace Johnson Today. NEWPORT, Aug. 'lft-i-Champlon R. Norris Williams, 2nd, and WHUam M. Johnston, the Callfornlan, are slated to meet In the Casino singles Invitation tourney as one of the feature of to day's play. The .champion is likely to win. Judging from the improvement over his play of the last two days. Wil liams has squeaked out win on two oc casions in singles, being forced to five sets In one Instance, and (.has left his partner. Washburn, all bt the work to do In their doubles' 'wins. Maurice McLoughlin and Wallace Johnson, the Phlladelphlan, are to op pose each other In another whirlwind match. Johnson Is rated as one of the best chop stroke players in the country, and the two varieties of tennis will be well worth watching. Irving C. Wright will face the bril liant Callfornlan, Clarence Griffin, in another match, while Harry C. John son will tackle Nat W. Nile, the former Intercollegiate champion. Yesterday's matches proved conclu sively that Williams Is back In form. Craig Blddle gave Williams Just enough opposition to bring out the champion's moat brilliant efforts. The opening set went to Wllnams at 63, and the sec ond was taken by Blddle, who volleyed so prettily that he won the session at 6-1. Then Williams began a peerless ses CASE IS STILL HANGING FIRE Much Disputed Player Wanted By Cincinnati, New York, and Pittsburgh in National. Lack of quorum prevented the Na tional League directors from reaching a decision on the status of "Rube" Benton, the pitcher recently sold by Cincinnati and claimed by both the Pirates and tho Giants. The directors met in Boston, but adjourned until to day, when they will meet there at the league offices. - Benton, according to the best infor mation, was placed upon the market several weeks ago. When the GlanU were in Cincinnati on their last trip, McGraw heard of this and made a proposition to August Herrmann, presi dent of the Reds. McGraw agreed to pay 33,000 for Benton, but asked for a twenty-day option. This option was made verbally and agreed to by Herr mann, who seemed satisfied with the money offered. The option expired last Monday, but last Saturday when the Reds were in Pittsburgh Fred Clarke offered to buy Benton from Herzog, agreeing to pay 4,000. Herzog talked to Herrmann over the telephone, and Herrmann, neglecting to tell of tho option held by McGraw, told Herzog to make the deal. Benton was then sold to Pittsburgh and a check for $4,000 turned over to Herzog. The next day, Sunday, Pittsburgh played in Cincinnati and at the same time McGraw heard of the sale of Ben ton to Pittsburgh. He wired Herrmann, reminding him of his option, and then It was Herrmann told Herzog of tho claim held by the Giants. Clarke re fused to give up the player, asserting he did not know of the option ar.d was in the rUht. This brought the sale of the player to tho attention of the league dlrcotors for their decision Friday. Flynn Is Victor. NEW HAVEN Carlln Bell, tho Austrian heavy, threw up the sponge here last night In his scheduled twelve round flpht with Porky Flynn. of Bos ton. Bell said he was In distress and unable to continue. BENTON the Had Sox are the likeliest to-win one takes a peek at their reserve armies are being driven back for American League -clubs failing Sox are winning because of their the ability of their regulars. and Clark Griffith are not keeping they have no reserves, wave you to do so, for there lies the secret Gainer plays first base, the Red out of the game by Injury, little toes with remarkable fielding, , before now without injuring the trio ranks with the best in the sion from mldcourt. and those who watched his performance understood how he had defeated Behr at Beabright last week. Williams caught driver on the full volley and turned them back into Blddle's court with ' half-arm vol leys and nicked the chalk mark. The faster the rallies became the more brilliant was the champion's work. The laBt two sets went to Williams at 61, 63. McLoughlin took the measure of B. C. Law, of Princeton University, In straight sets at 6-3, 61, 76, and when he wished won his games by a splendid display of lawn tennis. The conqueror of Brooks and Wilding went to the net more frequently than has been his cus tom recently, bewildering Law by the consummate ease with which he earned his point by volleying of the most delicate nature, but rarely did the "comet" let out with one of his cy clonic smashed. Perhaps he is saving his heaviest batteries for the final round, with either Williams or Johnston a his probable opponent. Harry C. Johnson, of Boston, cut short the winning career of young Row land Evans, of Phlladelhia. winning the match with ease at 6 S, 64), 61. Clarence J. Griffin was carried to four sets by Richard Stevens, putting out the veteran at 9-3, 63, 8-4. 64. Niles vanquished George W. Wright man, of Boston, in straight sets at 64, -3. 62, getting a majority .of his points by fast driving from bajjk court. E Chevy Chase Pro Does Long Hole in Two During Play in First Round. CHICAGO, Aug. 19,-Oeorge Sargent, Chevy Chase professional, furnished the features In the first day's play for the Western open golf tournament which started yesterday, and the Washington man tied for third In the first day's play and made two remark able holes In the competition. Sargent made the first hole In two going out in the morning driving 235 yards and holing out the 367-yard hole on an approach. In the afternoon Bar gent narrowly missed another two, his approach going within a few Inches of the cup. Fred McLeod, of Columbia Country Club of Washington, was tied for sev enth place, but ha a chance to Im prove his standing today. Tom McNamara, of Boston, with a good score ot 153 for the first 36 holes yesterday, led the 110 golfers. Jack Hutchinson, of Allegheny, Pa., finished the first half of the 72-hole contest second with 155 strokes. George Sargent, of Chevy Chase Club, Wash ing, p.

NEW YORK, Aug. l.-Coleman Du pont's hydroplane Tech, Jr., yesterday established a now speed record for American power boats over the Man haaset bay measured nauttcal mile, twice reaching a speed of 54.54 statute miles per hour In the fourth and sixth trips over the course The1 occasion was the mile Campion ship event always hod In connection with the Gold Challengo Clip contests, and was the culmination of 'the four days' meeting of the best power boats In America. The best speed record heretofore was 51.66 miles, held by the Baby Speed Demon, made over the Luke George course a year ago. Tech; Jr., therefore preyed herself the faster boat by thret miles an hour over the best effort of Speed Demon, though the latter, as a matter of fact, had niade- Identically the same time over the Peoria (III.) course a year ago. This has never been accepted as a record, however, as It was made down stream with a swift current. Therefore It has never had & place In any official records except those of the Mississippi River Power Boat Association, and was never offered as a record, even by Mrs. J. Stuart Blackton, who owns the craft. . Each of the four competing boats had to make six trips over the course, three from north to south with wind and tldo aalnt them and three the reverse way of the course with wind and tide favor. Ing. Tech, Jr.. was the last of the com petitors to make the trials, and her av. eraa-e time for the six miles, accord to the Irreducible minimum average of the admiralty system was 46.70 knots or nautical miles of 6,00 feet, or an av erage of S1.87 mile per hour for the statute mile of 6,280 feet by which all other speed averages, than purely nauti cal event are measured and which Is the mile as understood by all people save nautical engineers. This is an American record for motor boats, thouah it was said that there was a record of three miles faster made by Maple Leap, tho present holder of the Harmaworth Trophy. Tech's time Is practically a record three miles faster than that tiwMnfnn recorded In this country. Comparisons are almost Impossible, however,' with absolute accuracy, a this 1 the first time that the admiralty system of com putation haa been strictly applied to such trials.

Educational Value Of Film Has Been Only Partially Developed. A motion picture enthusiast who has given some thought to the sub ject has recently suggested that great thing would be accomplished by the pictures in the school If the educational film waa changed from a passive to a positive quantity mean ing that Instead of the hlt-or-mlsa system that is now in vogue, some regular course of study should be provided. It Is the educational value of the film that spurred the pioneer Inven tors to the development of the mo tion picture camera and the project ing machine. The educational possi bilities of the motfon picture formed the attraction that drew the mind e.f Tho me s .A. Edison to the field. Mr. Edison Is a self-educated man. What he knows he learned on his own initiative, and he values observation as an educational factor above everything else. He believed that photography of moving object. If perfected, would permit' the placing of the actual thing to be studied be fore the scholar. He believed that a motion picture of a State capital would be a greater leaaon to a school room full ot children than an entire book of statistics. That is one of the reasons he de voted so much of his time to the de velopment of the camera and pro jecting machine. In Washington C. Francis JenVins was kept at his work on projecting problems by the desire of the scientists of the Department of Agriculture to make pictures ot-' growing plants as they grew which could be run off In a few minutes so that the process ot growing could be watched. Despite the fact that these two pioneers in motion picture develop mentthe two men on whom rests moat of the credit for American prog ress In cinematography had an edu cational Incentive behind them, very little hag been done In utllltlng the Aim for popular educational purpose along approved educational line. Pictures without number of educa tlcanal subjects have been made, but up to date the United States does not possess a single laboratory where special pictures can be made nor has there been any attempt to do aught but gather special feature pictures of travel or scientific sub jects which were shown by them selves and had no relation whatever to each other. Courses of study in history, geo graphy, botany, physics, sanitation, public health, elemental geology or physical geography, zoology, biol ogy, electricity, agrlcultue And a host of oter subjects might be prepared in a popular way that EXCURSIONS street northwest and Moss Ticket PHOTOPLAYS AND PHOTOPLAYERS By OAXDXEft MACK. would make them invaluable in the primary schools where more or less unsatisfactory books are now being used. The State of California, the cities, of New York, Chicago, Mil waukee and several other, have made appropriations of large sums of money to secure motion pictures for schools, but there Is no regular course In any subject that the schfNJs might purchase. Films that are used must be bought here, there and everywhere and a course of study' pieced together, Or the school must make their own pic tures wmen l practically prohib itive because of the coat, except In the caso of purely local subjects. A year or more ago the Interna tional Association of Bible Students made the first serious attempt to secure a picture history of the Bible that could be exhibited throughout th country. A Bible study cam paln was organized that cost a vast sum of money and picture programs wero arranged extending over a period of three or four days of nightly exhibitions. To secure com plete sets of pictures It was neces sary for the association to repro duce old paintings and statuary in addition to motion pictures. Later another organization was formed in New York to go 'nto the business of manufacturing film f Bible and religious subjects. The scheme fell through because a very large amount of money was required and could not be obtained. Within the past two or three months the Vitagraph Company has established . a scientific department and an nounces that It will Issue fjoln time to time film of acl'ntlll: subjects. There la no Indication that ny at tempt will be made to matte" a regu lar set ot film of any subject, how ever. In Europe there are one or two film concerns that maintain elab orate plants for the filming- of aclen tlflc subjects. There has been no attempt to take any uni subject, however, and carry It through a regular course of Illustrative study. The Idea Is, generally, to get slmiily some Interesting feature of animal, or bird, or Insect life and mako a picture of from 200 feet to l,(XO feet. Few of them, however, havo ex ceeded BOO feet In length. In this country the Department of Agricul ture has made a rather comprehen sive set of films on roa1bull.ilng and of one or two other tranche of the department' activity. These films, however, are not for Keneral circulation and are not being usel in primary schools, usually because the picture studies are too far ad vanced for such use, although the. road building films are easily under- EXCURSIONS 1lrtr-arat Aannal Grand TOURNAMENT AND DRESS BALL MARSHALL HALL Wednesday, An. 25, Steamer Ckarles Maealester will leave Seventh Street Watarf at 10 a. na 3i30 and i30 p. as. 25e Renad Trip 28e- l rs WEEK-END TRIPS GA Old Point Comfort tJJf Virginia Beach $XP Ocean View FRIDAY AND SATURDAY Special Week-end Tickets, Ipcluil las Stateroom and Accommoda. tloaa Chamfcerlln Hotel.
