The; irain this week put the fields in bad! shape, but the boys got busy early j land scraped off the mud. Amateurs 1 1 are anxious to get into trim as there are indications of a close race this 1 | season for local honors. Harrisburg fans were jubilant to day over the transfer of the Troy team to Harrisburg. Getting a tallender j may not plea.se some supporters, but' according to Manager George Cockill j there will be some changes and bet- j ter results are looked for. Last week on the announcement that Troy was to come to Harrisburg the Trojans : won two games in succession. The rowing season with college, crews will end to-day at Poughkeep- i sie. The annual regatta includes all of last year's entries, and some new aspirants. Syracuse has been a strong \ j favorite all, week, but owing to the j recent change in coaches at univer jsity of Pennsylvania, the results this ' evening may show the Quakers up | near the front. I On Monday night the members of: I Empire Athletic Association will meet | to hear the report of Robert Gillett.J the matchmaker, on his program for | July 4. It is to be an all-star offer- i j ing. and every bout, according to con- \ (tracts will be between title contenders, i ! Krankle Erne, by his own rccjucst. will | lie given another chance with A 1 Mur-j phy, the Scranton boy. This pair fur-, ! nished a great battle several weeks j ago. ! Much interest is manifested by the | 'young shooters of Harrisburg in the 1 'beginners' events held by the various sportsmen's associations. Another; ! month of these events and there will i ; be few who arc eligible to the begin i ners' class. Local boys have been i showing gooii scores in the v(eekl.v ; events and some have already entered ; the winning class at target shoots, j Owing to the rainy weather which has prevailed throughout the week. |the eolf committee of the Colonial Country Club, has decided to extend ) the time for qualifying for the Men's | and Women's Match Play Golf Tour ; naments to and including June 25, and ] to advance the periods for playing off .each of the matches in those tourna ments one week. A number of en tries have been made by both men and women. Members, who have not j yet qualified, are earnestly urged to do iso oft or before June 25 and enter the ! tournaments, and thereby promote a j better club spirit. »»♦»♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦»>♦♦♦♦ i I ♦ £ Fix these FRAT facte myour ♦ £ mind: (1) New Patterson blend of T II raid Burley, (2) Hai price. ♦ R ~ "E£ I "" OrigMal Pa&snom of Richmond, Va.
