Fondling the project much as a
youngster pours over a new bicycle,
the principals behind the Raritan
Copper Works athletic development
arc looking forward impatiently to the
opening of their baseball season Sat
urday. For, the ball gamo will mark
the actual launching of the project
which embraces in addition to a fast
baseball nine, an enclosed held, grand

ance will provide a barometer of this
The Raritan Copper Works Athletic
Association in charge of the devel
opment, is rushing to a completion the
grandstand, so that it will be ready for
Saturday afternoon. P^or the open
ing game, Manager Martin Hurley has
secured tho Wheeler nine of Roose
velt. The Wheelers bowed to the
Copper Works nine in a ten inning
game several weeks ago. That and a
game with the Coast Guards here
wore the only tussles played by the
Copper Works nine this season.
Tho Saturday game will be regard
ed, however, as the official opening of
the local season. Mayor TenBroeck
wil toss out the first ball. An address
by a local man will precede this cer
emony. From one corner of the new
grandstand will float the American
flag, from the other a company ser
vice flag.
Diamond Repaired.
Although the Raritan Copper
Works diamond is as old as baseball
in this city it is a far different grounds
right now than before. A force of
men has been "manicuring" both in
field and outfield for a week and it
should shape up well with minor
league circuits by Saturday. The
grandstand is a trifle too far from
tho third base line, but this was ne
cessitated by the desire to have the
finish lino of the sprint paths directly
in front of the stand.
The stand is eighty feet long with a
width of twenty-two feet, and is cov
ered. Under the stand are dressing
rooms for both homo team and visit
ors. There are seats for 4 00 specta
tors. There will be a fee of ten cents
for the grandstand: no admission
charge to tho open field.
It is the manager's intention to
bring here tho very best industrial and
semi-pro talent in tho .state. The fac
tory nine faces locally practically no
competition. The fartory league of
past years seems to have passed out.
So, the Copper Works nine will rep
resent in one sense of the word the
Perth Amboy Club.
Games will bo sought with the
Camp Morgan and Bonhamtown camp
nines. The semi-pro ranks of New
ark will be combed for strong attrac
ions. The talent comprising: the
earn unquestionably represents about
he best available in the city.
In a glass case in the hallway of
he general office, there are two large
silver trophies—one, the permanent
possession of the Copper Works play
ers by virtue of victory in the factory
eague for three seasons, and the

The opening of the baseball season

ibandonment of the field, went interest
xnd since then there has been prac
lirally nothing stirring. Outdoor ath
etics at the Y. M. C. A. are handi
capped because there is no track.
There is a possibility that when the
R. C. W. track is completed, an inter
nant field meet will be held with rep
resentatives invited from all the in
Justrial centers through Central Jer
sey. The track should prove, too, a
big stimulus to both the high school

ivill have a length of 825 feet and
vidth of 335 feet. As a final item of

State Athletic Commission
Springs Surprise Ruling. Re
scinds Former Action.
β υ Special Corrc&ponatnt.
TRENTON, June 6—At its meeting: 1
here yesterday the State Athletic
• ' ο m mission is understood to have re
scinded Rule 35, which prohibits
what are known as "mixed bouts,"
that is, boxing exhibitions between
negro and white participants. This
action of the commission came as
.somewhat of a surprise in view of
the previous inclinaSfcn of the mem
bers not to rescind this rule.
This action i» believed to have been
taken to please the negroes of the
state who have been protesting
against this rule and who charged
race discrimination on the part of
the commission. It was hinted that
if the commission did not revoke the
regulation the matter would be car
ried to Governor Kdge, who appoint
ed the members following the par
age of the boxing law at the last ses
sion of the legislature.
Seeret Session
The commission continued to prac
tice holding executive sessions when
it invited reporters to stay outside.
This action has aroused considerable
Jiscussion in the State House and has
created some criticism. This has
been so especially in view of the fact
that all other state boards conduct
their business in the open.
It is understood that Rule 17 of
the commission was amended yester
day. It provides that all contestants
in bouts in the state should weigh in
not later than 3 o'clock, of the day
of the contest. So far as could be
learned this regulation will in the
future apply only to the main con
testants in the exhibitions and not to
preliminary bouts.
No licenses for clubs were allowed
it yesterday's meetings, and it is un
lerstood that at next week's session
:he commission will take action upon
jeveral protests by community asso
ciations which are objecting to the
ocation of boxing clubs in their sec
Jons of the state.

Becoming a star shortstop in the
