“Hobey’ Baker Meets Death
In Fall Of Plane In France
Captain Hobart A. II. Baker of tho
Cnltod States Aviation Corps, the irre
pressible "Hober" of Princeton foot
ball and hockey fame, accidently was
killed tn the fall of his plane at Toul,
France, last Saturday. News of hlu
death was received here yesterday by
his friend, Percy Payne, in a cable
gram from Capt. ' rands N. Ingle
hart, a member of Baker’s air squad
ron. tho Fourth Pursuit Group.
It was tho unkind cut of fate that
"Hobey” should go unscathed through
many desperate air duels during the
war only to meet his death after the
cessation of hostilities and in the last
flight he was to hu\e made before
leaving for home. Papers ordering
tho airman to roturn to America were
found In his pockets when his body
was picked up.
While In the service Baker has
downed twelve Hun planes and had
won the Frsneh Croix de Guerre and
the American Distinguished Service
Medal, TVker was famous in East
ern amateur and college athletic clr- '
cles for his football and hockey play
ing. He easily made the Princeton 1
'varsity eleven and as a member of 1
the backfield from 1911 to 191* as
well as captain of the team In his sen
ior year. He was also captain and a
prominent factor In many of the vic
tories of the Princeton hockey team. 1
After his graduation he entered the
ranks of the amateur club hockey
playora and eventually became a
member of the 8t. Nicholas Club of
the American Amateur Hockey
League. In the position of rover he
won immediate recognition as one of
ttie best hockey players ever devel
oped in the states. In a number sf
; International matches with the lead
; mg Canadian teams hs held his own
both ns a speed skater and hock
i eylst. He was among the early colle
gians to enlist In the aviation service
and soon rose to the rank of captain.
3,300 Dozens of Baseballs
Sent to France In One Month
It looks as if a lot of winter baseball'
would be'spilled over the diamonds
laid out In France and England for the
American fighting men who must re
main overseas for many months. A
trilling shipment of 86.960 baseballs,
2.880 bats, 10.260 gloves or various
kinds, 8,181 mitts, e hundred sets of
bases, 286 masks, 951 protectors. 5,000
score cards and 10,888 books of rules
was sent overseas In November by tho
Y. M. C. A. Thero were thirty-four
different Items In the entire shipment
of athletic goods which cost $172,
The sports department la one of tho
branches of "Y" work overseas that,
is to be increased greatly during the
period of occupation and demobiliza
tion. Military authorities are unani
mous In their praise of the value of
sports In the training of an army to
do a big Job and In keeping the army
In trim after the big Job is done. Men
are now being trained at Springfield
Y. M. C. A. college to go overseas and
extend the work beyond Its already
comprehensive program.
The variety of the sports that are
encouraged among the soldiers Is Indi
cated by the shipment of thousands of
basketballs, boxing gloves, cage balls,
footballs, tennis equipment, quoits,
tug-of-war ropes, volley balls, wrestl
ing mats, medicine balls, playground
bulls and the like. One Item on the
list was 600 pumps with which to

Want Change In Deer Law
South Jersey sportsmen have pre
pared a bill which they will present at
the coming session of the New Jersey
legislature asking for four successive
days In October n«xt as the open sea
son for the killing of deer instead of
four days in as many weeks us at pres
ent. Tho sportsmen are not so much
concerned about allowing the use of
dogs, but feel that with four continu
ous days there would be a better
chance to got crippled deer.
