ET IN BOWLING
Mrs. John J. Duffy Rolls Score
of 263 in Game at
Ha? kensa( k, January IT.?Mrs John
sT. Duffy, wife of ex-rife Chief Duffy of'
Hackensack. established a new record
for women bowlers in the State and
probably in the country this afternoon
when she rolled a score .of 263 at the
session of the Chela Club.
Mrs. Duffy is ordinarily a poor bowler
as evidenced by her scores of Co and 99
that followed, but in this one game she
succeeded in making nine straight,
strikes I'p to then she had rolled a
large rubber ball, but Mrs. Duffy eon- i
eluded to try a lighter bail and then I
made a three-pin spiit
The record score was made on the
Hackensack Wheelmen alleys, and it is I
the highest score made on the alleys
this season by either man or woman.

scored with much regularity, the first
twenty minutes of play ending with the

In the Wake of the Game
By GUS MALBERT
This afternoon a subcommittee, named from a committee appointed to
adopt a constitution, by-laws and to name officers for the Richmond Amateur
Athleti? Federation, will meet and hear arguments from a representative of the
Amateur Athletic Union as to why the local organization should become affiliat?
ed with that body. I'pon the conclusions reached by the committee will largely
depend the future course of the federation, and. in a large measure, its ultimate
success and influence. As to the final action of the committee, we have no com?
ments to make, knowing that whatever is done will be dpne by the men present
in a desire to further the cause in whose interests they arc working.
However, a certain number of Salacious statements have been made relative
to the local organization, its alms, its purposes, and what It hopes to Anally
uchieve The Richmond Amateur Athletic Federation had its inception. Its birth
in a welifare movement Athletic contests were thought of only as a means to an
end Competion in athletic events was another means to an end. Primarily the
object of the federation was to begin an educational campaign to Instruct the
young men, boys and girls of Rb-hmond in the art of physical development
along sale and sound lines; to bring them and their parents and advisors along
other lines to a realization that the boy and girl must be developed physically
gl wall as mentally and morally. Hundreds of these hoys and girls are so equipped
physically that they cannot enter into any kind of competition, regardless of how
mild But the trend of those who are sticklers for affiliation at this time with
the A. A. I'. Is to make rompetltton in athletic events an end In itselfs the
development of Jim Thorpe's, Ted Merediths. Mel Mieppards and others of
equal prowess on the cinder path.
The men who discussed all of the problems while the organization was still
in incubation, foresaw all of these difficulties and sought, to avoid them. Thev
have been injected, illadvisedly. we think, but nevertheless they are here and must
bo answered. Competition is not in itself bad. but when competition is carried
to the extreme, is fostered at the expense of the real aims and ideals of an organi?
zation, that organization is drifting perilously near the rocks. That is the one and
th? paramount question which the men who are framing the laws and policies
of the new organization must solve, und solve wisely.
Federations are formed to improve the welfare and physical condition of
the people within the federation not to win honors from those without the feder?
ation. Federations are formed bo that those who are without the organization
' an learn the good that is being accomplished from within, and may be influenced
to organi/.e so that they, loo, may enjoy these bemflts. Federations are formed
so that the work being done, the educational methods employed, the mild com?
petitions indulged in from time to time, after the competitors bavo been de?
veloped to the point where they can stand competition, will create an answering
interest, not onlv from those within the federation, but from the parents and
relatives and friends of the members, who realize the actual and permanent good
accomplished, and not the ephemereal glorv which may come through individual
stars who in open competition may have vanquished somebody from somewhere
The basic elements of the federation as proposed here are ethical and physio?
logic. The federation is to be a training school, not for athletes who wear a regis?
tration mark, but for men and women who are strong and healthy, made strong
and healthy through instructions received in the federation. All the competition
needed or required to carry out the aims of the federation will be furnished v.-ithin
the federation. Athletes are to be merely a bi-product, not a purpose. .Standards
of amateurism adopted by the leudiiiK organizations in the land will govern the
federation If. In after years, when the organization has grown strong, has es?
tablished itself in the homes of Richmond, then. If the men in charge think it
wise, the question of entering competitive meets may be considered.
Let the men who are considering the many perplexing questions give thought
to this: The hearty support given to the movement by the people of Richmond
was ?iven because it was to be a Richmond Institution for Richmond boys and
girls, a trainging school for the grown and growing, not a clearing house for
athletes. They must realize that they owe their flrst dutjr to Richmond, and that
they should so build that they will serve the greatest number wisely and well.
Those who have ambitions to become stars along lines of athletic endeavors,
are welcomed, as are the plodders and workers, but the ambitious must be willing
to come along with the rest of the crowd ; to help, not to hinder. These are some
of the things the subcommittee must consider, along with the falacious statement
thai only through competition, and through the permission of this or that body
can real good be accomplished. That path is always open, but starting with the
yoke about your neck, you will And It a far more difficult Job to rid yourself of it

What promises to be one of the
best games of basketball ever
played at the Howltxer's Armory,
will occur tu-nlght at 8:30 o'clock,
when the Artillerymen will line up
against the strong team from Fred

very good records so far this season,
and a fast close game is looked for.
The only games the Howitzers have
lost were to the William and Mary
team, one In Richmond and the last
In Wllllamsburg, where they played
the rollgee to a standstill, extra
time being necessary to decide the
contest. William and Mary finally
winning by four points. On the other
hand the Howitzers have four clean

fine record, and victory may be a
matter of few points to either team.

Mr. Cblnn also told of a new French
breeding rule that will be of interest to
Americans who contemplate racing
abroad. He said that under the new
rule all foreign mares in foal must reach
France before January 1 each year If
their produce is to be eligible for the
French racing. Formerly all that was
necessary to make a foal eligible was to
hare it foaled in France.
Mr. Chinn accompanied the last Im?

from New York to France as overseer.
He took the stallions Peter Pan and
Ort Wells abroad, with eight of the best
brood mares at that time in Kentucky.

JENNINGS IN DUTCH
Davy Jones Attributes Poor Showing of Tigers Last
Year to Hughie's Abusive Methods, and
Predicts Worse Trouble This Seaso.
Detroit, Mich, January 17?Frank.

threatened with a second revolution

of Hughie Jennings as a term of peace ,
The first intimation of any con- I
spiracy was the ridiculous demand of
, Ty Cobb for a aalary of til.Quo a year.
Cobb had just finished a three-years' 1
' contract at $9 000. When Navin refused
to listen to such a "hold-up" from the
Oeorgian. a number of the Tigers who
! reside in this city called upon the presi
I dent. Among the lot were Davy Jones
and Sam Crawford. They are reported
i to have told Navin that they would not
play under Jennings because the poor
showing of Detroit last year was solely
due to Hughic's abuse of his players.
Jennings was very popular with his ;
men until Ty Cobb got into trouble
Hugh refused to go out on strike with
his men in Philadelphia He put in
amateurs against the Athletics to save
the club franchise. Jennings was large?
ly instrumental in breaking the strike. ,

"I was sold because I had informed
President Navin I never would play
under Jennings again, and was in po?

said. "I already have an option on
another drug store. Sam Crawford
and half a dozen other Tigers have
told Mr. Navin the same thing. That
is the secret of Sam's holdout He is
in position to back up his demand, as
well a? I, but I don't think the others,
are. and I suppose tbey will have to

"Aa a consequence, every player was

Bush, or any one who ever played

Jennings at a game In Chicago last
