Sanction having been secured from

track meet will bp pulled off in great
shape at the armory to-night, (lie
game* beginning promptly at 8:20
o'clock. There will be eight events
in the dual meet for tin point trophy,
and a mile relay race between the
Blues and the College. In the acade?
mic class there will be a triangular
fight between McGulrc's. Richmond
Academy and John Marsholl Iflgh
School, the events being 50-yard dash
and hurdle?, high jump, shot put, and
relay race.
Invitations have been extended the
friends of flic militiamen and of the
schools taking part in the meet. A
large, crowd will be on hand, and the
dot ?sion will be graced by the Bluer
Band, which will furnish music dur?
ing the intermissions.
Official* of Meet.
VN'. G. Stuart, acting secretary of the
South Atlantic division, has declared
that he will bo in attendance and will
act as refere? of the meet. Mr. Pun
lap. former coach at Richmond Col?
lege, will be the official starter, and A.
Y. Reithard, of the Central Y. M. C.
A. will be the judge at the finish An
official timer has not yet been chosen
It has been determined by the Blues,
because of the success which la sure
to attend this initial effort In the field
of athletics, to hold a similar meet
annually hereafter. The Interest mani?
fested by the battalion Is manifested
in the gatherings which are nightly
seen at. the armory, and in which are
diFcussed the probabilities of winning
the meet.
Itrlny Race ? Feature.
The two events of greatest interest
will he the relay race and the mile run.
Woddlll; eis has been told in these col
lumns before, is the man to whom tn?
Blue.-? pin faith to win. while the col
legluna are sure that Vaughan can
turn Hie trick for thorn. Both are fast
men and have made good time during
tlit training season at the distance. It
is hinted that a few wagers have been
made on the outside upon the outcome
of the run.
The point division will be five for
first place nnd three for second. There
? is much speculatIon as to the winner
ot the dual affair. Coach Hagaman can
see nothing to it but his team. Oljn
Richardson' will not ho convinced that
his men aro not the best And to add
! to it all will be the social side of the
j meet.
j Gathered in the gallery will be many
of lhe fair sex who will root for their
! favorites. It is not stretching the
i truth to say that this audience will
? make the runners extend themselves
j t.. the utmost, aside front the personal
J glory of Vit tory.

Tito midget relay teams, composed

schools will represent the East End
and four the West End. The winner
from each section will then race a final j
relay to determine the championship. ?
The little fellows will- each run a half j
a lap. as Physical Director Jones does
not desire to try his charges too much.]
Unf or tunately, neither the Young J
Men's Christian Association nor the j
Christ Church Association could rhus- [
ter relay teams, as was the case with
the First Virginia Regiment and the I
Howitzers. It is hoped that each of
these organizations will have teams in
the field when the open-air meet is
held at the baseball park oii April 12.
GREAT IS THE SPORT
OF PICKING WINNERS
Sullivan by No Means Ready to Name His Team,
and Shifting of Baker to Second Was a Tem?
porary Arrangement to Get Line on Men.
BY (US MABBKRT.
Picking a baseball team is it serious j
niece of business. Some people can
pick teams better than others, ami j
some people can pick better teams than ]
others. Usually it is lite duty of the I
manager to the team to pick his men. |
On the other hand; there are any hum- j
her of people who know that they have
it all over ihr- manager in doing; the j
job.
Jiiniuie Sullivan has made no state?
ment to an:.- man as to the relatlvd
ability of the recruits tie how has un?
der consideration! He made tills as?
sertion yesterday afternoon; and there
was no semblance of equivocation
when If made it. Every remark made
regarding (he selection of players at
this tittle is conjecture pure and simple. !
It one is inclined to guess one has that!
prh liege aiid if one guesses correct-' I
ly one is lucky. That's about the way:
it stacks up lit this time.
Neither Sullivan nor uwner Bradley j
has ever made the statement that
Baiter was u>>itig to play second base j
Instead <>r shortstop. Both men agreed j
as to (hat fact. An-, ??ue who has been!
fit ili. I,till park knows that Maker!
was shifted in practice to second base. \

Athletic Contests With Virginia?Many Pre

[Special to The Times-Dispatch.]
Charlottesvllle, Vu., March T.',-?Ar?
rangements are rapidly being complet?
ed for the annual Southern Intercol?
legiate and interschola3tic track and
field meet, to be held on 'Uamboth
j Field, at the University of Vlrglna,
! on April '12. The following Southern
! colleges and universities \\*11 compete:
j North Carolin?., Georgetown, "Wake
Forest, Virginia and probably George
Washington.
Most all of the preparatory schools
of tho State and some in the District
ot" Columbia and Maryland have Inti?
mated their desire to send representa?
tives, so that the meet promises to bo
one of the largest yet held at the uni?
versity.
Last spring Virginia took the meet
handily, and sprung a few surprises
by breaking two of the records, and
Director La'nnlgan is in hopes of re?
peating the performance again this !
year. The short rest between It .and
the Richmond meet will give the men
ample time to get In good condition,
and from the showing of the candl
dates now at work, there 1? every
chance of this being realized.
In response to Trainer I..annlgan's
call, several new candidates for field
events have reported. For a number
of years Virginia has been noticeably
weak In this department, and espec?
ially has this been true of the pole
voult. Knowing this Lannlgan has di?
rected his ability toward couching men
for this position with the determina?
tion of turning out one or two men
who may be counted on to win places
In the coming meets. Larry Martin,
who has been the only polo vaultcr
who has placed in the pust few years,
in aiding In the work, and at present
the prospects of taking a place arc
fairly good, us throe of the candidates
are showing up well.
With the Kirhmond meet scheduled
for April 12, the real task of working,
out the men has now begun. Favor
1 able weather conditions and steady
.application will put Virginia In condi?
tion to win the meet. Among the new
men Avho have recently reported for
the squad arc W. P. McDonald, \\T. W. j
Worthing'on and V. Heckle.

necessary to win the game
The second game was a seesaw af?
fair from beginning to end; with first
one and then the other team leading

evenly matched. The Richmond boys

An automobile is an economy.
It increases your efficiency. It
makes "two minutes grow for
you where only one grew be?
fore."
The automobile industry is now the
third in the country \n point of volume
and is still growing. The everyday,
sensible, careful-buying business man
has made this volume possible. If the
motor car was an extravagance he
would soon find ft out ? and quit
buying.
Each year the supply of
has been unequal to the demand. Al?
ready this season more than 60 per
cent of the 1911 outpat of Chalmers
cars has been shipped to customers;
tbt remainder i* going fast. We take
thct* conditions to meftn that the Chal?
mers company has succeeded in build?
ing cars that appeal to the careful busi?
ness buyers of the conn try as unusual
value st their prices.
Lost year a great many who wanted
Chalmers cars were disappointed. We
honestly believe the same will be true
this year. We only make this as a
suggestion?take il for wh*t h U worth.
