NOT AMATEURS Who Play on the Eastern Gridirons THE FAMOUS COLLEGE CLUBS MADE UP OF BLACKSMITHS AND POLICEMEN • of Berkeley Thinks Western Methods Pretty Decent After All—Sporting News Associated Press Special Wire BERKELEY, Jan. 22.—Track Captain Everett J. Brown of the University of California, who has just returned from an Eastern trip, taken in the interests of the Athletic Association of his college, asserts that the athletes of some of the Eastern colleges are not amateurs in the true sense of the word. At a meet ing of the Athletic Association, he said in this connection: "We are told to look to the East as the acme of dignified amateur athletics, but I tell you that we are better right here in the West. Amateurism is a mere pretense in some of the big universities. When I told them our methods they laughed and said they savored of the 'prep' school. I met men from Yale who boasted that they had not seen the college campus during the football season, and Princeton was not far behind. Harvard is more like < California, and that's why she does not win. The Cambridge men are expected to study, and at Pennsylvania you will find the football team recruited all the way from country blacksmith shops to the New York police force."

JAPAN'S NAVY Claims Another American Built Ship CRUISER CHITOSE LAUNCHED BY THE UNION IBON WORKS AT SAN FRANCISCO Miss May Budd Cracks the Bottle as the Warship Slides Into the Water Associated Press Special Wire PAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 22.—The Jap anese cruiser Chitose slid from the ways at 10:27 oclock today. The launching was one of the most successful that has ever taken place at the Union Iron works. Thousands witnessed the launching. Long before the tide had reached, the proper stage for the floating of the hull of the row marine fighter the hills of the Potrero were dotted with little groups of spectators, and the -water's edge between the Arctic Oil works and the Scotts' yard was lined with men, women and children. Tugboats arrived at the docks of the works, laden with gaily gowned women and men resplendent In plug it- and gold lace. The tinsel of rank was blended with the colors of social form, lending much life to what might have proved a somewhat commonplace mechanical proceeding. The Union Iron works had its own tugboat, the Rockaway, and that of the Pacific Mail Steamship company, the Millen Griffith, at Mission dock at an early hour. The two boats left the wharf for the ship yards at 9:15, and wi re followed shortly by the state tug, the Governor Markham, with members of Governor Budd's staff on board, a number of well-known citizens and a large delegation of ladies. The Milien Griffith carried Miss May liuibl of Stockton, niece of Governor Budd, and Miss Gladys Sullivan, niece of Hon. James D. Phelan, mayor of San Francisco. The former broke the bot tle of wine on the Chltose's bow, and the hitter touched the*button which released the tiny guillotine, which cut the rope attached to the last block to be struck from under the cradle of the war ship. Henry Scott accompanied his guests on the Griffith. He received Captain S. Sakuri, naval instructor of the imperial Japanese navy; the gen tleman's staff and the officers of the I'nited States army, navy and California state militia, who were invited to be on the platform when the ship slid off the ways. On the platform at the works were many prominent people. The big hull of the cruiser was gay with Japanese colors, red and white, and j the Stars and Stripes of the I'nited States floated above the ways and on every hand. The Chltose's stem rested against the platform of the moid loft, where the specially honored guests of the occa sion were assembled. When the time ar rlved the thousnads of people w ho were gathered to see the launching were si lently alert and anxious. A shout went up; the last color-laden ropes were loosed; there were a crash of glass and a splash of champagne, and The governor's pretty niece. Miss May L. Budd, was selected to chrls>» ten the new Japanese cruiser Chitose, launched at the Union Iron works yesterday. Miss Budd, who! is the daughter of John Budd of Stockton, is a student at a private school in Berkeley. It was only Thursday that she received word of the unique honor bestowed upon her. The news sent a ripple of excitement through the school. Irving M. Scott's letter to Miss Budd invited her in the name of the board of directors of the Union Iron works to give the new warship a name, and begged that she would send at once her acceptance. With it came a letter from Captain S. Sakurai, the Japanese officer who Is superintending the construction of the vessel, asking in the name If his Imperial majesty of Japan that as an American girl Miss Budd christen the first Amcrlcan-bullt vessel of Nip pon's navy. Miss Budd is one of the belles of Oakland and San Francisco, where she has been prominent in cotillions and teas. She is petite, brunette, and decidedly pretty. She has wavy black hair, a pleasant smile, and long, dark eyelashes. The governor is especially proud of his winsome niece. the noble ship slid majestically down the ways and well out into the water. The moment of christening was the signal for freeing three white doves, which had been captives, and the birds, emblematic of messages of peace, flew ooooo<^ lit Stops That I | Eternal Craving I I Take the Keeley 1 $ Cures Drunkenness and All Drug Addictions X O Corner North Main and Commercial Streets, over Farmers and Merchants' Bank, O up among tho colors of the ship as they were parted from the land. The Japanese colony of San Francisco provided a' very novel entertainment. A large barge was anchored near the Iron works, and a great quantity of Japanese hot-air balloons and daylight fireworks was set off. After the launching Irving M. and Henry Scott entertained a large num ber of their distinguished guests at a luncheon In the mound loft.
