EVERY FIELD OF SPORT COVERED
PART 111 WATER IS CAUSE OF HARD WORK MUST REMEDY SYSTEM NOW AT SANTA ANITA NO GAMBLING AT ARCADIA, BAYB CHIEF OF POLICE Los Angeles Racing Association For tunate In Securing Dr. Gardner as Manager for New Racing Plant J. G. GRIFFIN "VTOW that the Arcadia meeting has |\ been postponed more than a week -« -» beyond the original date set for opening, horsemen who are wandering into town daily will have a chance to look around and pay a visit occasionally to the field of their future operations. No horses will be moved to the new plant until a week from today, and Su perintenilent Allen will have plenty of time in which to complete the work as It s-hould be. While the grandstand and other build ings could be used Thursday if necessary tho track itself is tho cause of delay. Inadequate wuter supply kept tne builder of the plant from progressing with this feature as rapidly as was expected, and as J. Pluvius refused to show Allen was unable to do the proper grading on the surface of the course itself. To begin with, only one stream of water could be obtained at a time, for the simple reason that the pressure was insufficient. The pipe from the moun tains, where the water is obtained, is a four-inch main, while those used as dis tributors on the race track grounds are of the six-inch variety. This did not allow for any sort of pressure, and when two faucets were opened at the same time tho flow was scarcely noticeable. This condition will be remedied at once and Allen expects to have water in abundance. The surfacing of the track is completed, and as soon as the ground can be flooded and rolled the place will be ready for the horses. According to Jack Burdy, chief arm of the law at Arcadia, Lucky Baldwin's city will be about as orderly a place as one can find. All kinds of reports have gone abroad regarding the "lively" features which would prevail, but Burdy says there will be nothing doing. No Monte Carlo "Gambling will be tabooed," says Jack, "and I'll be there to see that no laws are broken. All this -stuff about roulettt tables and faro banks being allowed to run is simply gush, for they will be nbiserit. Of course the betting on the liorses will be allowed, but aside from that neither piker nor plunger can ex pect mucli action for his change at Ar cadia." This puts an end to the Monte Carlo Idea, for those who know Jack Burdy will take his word. His capabilities as an officer have never been questioned, and there Is no danger of anyone trying to buck things while he is in charge. With the exception of Judge Hamilton and his associates all of the Arcadia of ficials are here, but some of them may go to Oakland and take in a few days of the meet now in progress there. The racing secretaries and their assistants will have more time in which to prepare the event books and work on the stake book, which will be issued shortly. Persons connected with the Los An geles Racing association are congratulat ing themselves on the acquisition of Dr. Gardner- as manager for Santa Anita park. His unquestioned honesty and standing wherever he is known make the doctor a valuable factor in increasing the standing of the racing game and his ability to direct the work of a racing plant is too well known to call for com ment. Dr. Gardner was formerly president of the Kansas City Jockey club and held that office at the time the track at Elm Ridge was closed. He took 'hold of the Kansas City organization when its af fairs were in the poorest sort of shape and by dint of hard labor straightened things out and removed much of the stigma which was attached to that body before his advent. Since the closing of the track because of the state law he has not been actively engaged in racing, but when George Rose looked around for Santa Anita's manager and spotted Dr. Gardner he was once more persuaded to return to the fold. Billy McKinney Back Billy McKinney, smile and all, returned to Los Angeles yesterday atter a busy and successful season on the New York tracks. Billy got rid of that old jinks. Yon Tromp, «» d according to the dope the horse is so far gone that ho will never win another race, except against a lot of truck steeds— Yon Tromp was a good nag for a while, but despite the fact that he won many races with him McKinney lost money on the deal. McKinney comes back with Baal End and Pendllllon. as well as Daisy Frost. In the same cnx were a lot of Frank Regan's good ones, which will be raced as soon as ready. The firm of Bonsack & Webber is n new one to local followers of the game nrt the turfites are wondering if Louie Bonsack and Tommy Webber have formed a partnership. George S. Davis and Judge Denton came assigned to the firm yesterday, while G. W. Decker sent along Adoration and Gallivant. J. P. McAoams is credited with a 2-year-old filly named Look, which came in the same lot. Look is by Ornament and is expected to develop Into a star. Many othef stables are on the way and those which are due later than Thursday will be unloaded right at Santa Anita park.

With both teams badly crippled by the absence of several of 'their best players, the Castaways and Riverside high school played a loose game of Rugby at Bovard Held yesterday afternoon before a fair crowd.

COAOH PIERCE OF POMONA PIERCE BUSY WITH POMONA'S TOSSERS Entering Time Up Tuesday and Fast Games Are Expected on Asphalt Following Saturday— Out. siders Invited Special to The Herald. CL.AREMONT, Nov. 23.-Now that the football season is over Franklin E. l'ierce, the Pomona coach, will turn his atten tion to the basketball playera and en deavor to turn out a winning five from the material he finds waiting for him to get busy on. The game is exceedingly popular here, and it is thought the men can be whipped into shape to give the other college teams a run for first money. Pierce understands the game on the courts thoroughly, and will doubtless be more successful in his efforts at turning cut champions than he was at football. Owing to the small number of men avail able for gridiron work he was unable to do much with the team during the season just passed, but has already outlined his plans for next season, which he hopes to be a winner, Pomona's coach Is a remarkable athlete himself, having been one of Amherst's star men. He enjoys the rare distinction of having played on his varelty football team for four years, being at tackle for half of that time, full back one season find at half the other. He is popular here at Caremont, and is able to direct the men with more success, than would be the case were he less well liked. JACK CHINN CALLS FOR RACE BOARD MEETING By Asuoclateci Preta.

CHICAGO, Nov. 23.— The Carlisle In dian school football team defeated the University of Chicago eleven here today in a fast, desperately fought game. The score was 18 to 4. Three field goals from placement and a touchdown and goal accounted for the Indians' points. Walter Steffen, quarterback on the home team, scored, for Chicago by a drop kick from the 30-yard line. In almost every department of the game, especially in line play, the Indians had the better of their rivals. Chicagd. having won the championship of the colleges of the middle west, was ex pected to give the eastern players the hardest kind of a battle. But these hopes wtre vain. The speedy attack which had swept aside other western teams was slowed up by the .fierce play of the Indian guards and tackles; the Chicago ends were out sprinted and often completely boxed in, and the maroon 'back field had .no chance to get started on tho long runs which have, made the players noted in this section. Mount Pleasant Absent The Carlisle team was without the services of Mount Pleasant, the spec tacular quarterback, whose work has bothered Harvard, Pennsylvania and Princeton. A broken thumb received in the Minneapolis game kept him on the side lines. Ballenti and Island ran the plays without a hitch and the accurate kicking of Houser, coupled with his slashing runs and line plunging, made up for the ground gaining and scoring util ities of the. regular quarterback. Houser, in fact, was a whole team in himself. Backed up by impregnable in terference he carried the ball two-thirds of the time in the Indian attack and seldom failed to gain ground. Aiken and Littleboy opened up great gaps for him between Jones and Anderson and on dashes around the end HendricUs and Exondine put the opposing Chicago men out of the play with an case that was startling to the adherents of the local eleven. Houser's best work, however, was with his toe. Three times he negotiated goals from placeirfent with Ballenti holding the ball. As many more attempts were missed, but mainly because Doseffi man aged to wriggle through in time to hurry the kick. Perfect weather conditions brought out 27,000 football enthusiasts to watch the game. MARGARET CHUNG, EDITH ROMIG AND LILLIAN PRESSMAN, Three bright particular stars of tho U.S. C. women's gymnaaium class GATHERED AND EDITED BY EXPERTS MAY LAND MORAN AND ABE A TTELL r'CAREY TRYING TO MATCH LITTLE FELLOWS CARD WOULD BREAK RECORDS FOR ATTENDANCE Attell May Slide Out of Promise to Local Promoter by Delaying Pro- ceedings — Farmer's Best Chance If he offers the purse which such a match should call for Manager McCarey of the Pacific Athletic club is m line to present one. of the best cards ever thought of as a finale to the twenty-round shows In this city. Abe Attell and Owen Moran are the boys Mac Is trying to get to gether, and since the English boxer dis posed of Neil he is looked upon as a formidable adversary for the clever Abe. When he left here last week Attell an nounced that if he and Moran got on and agreed to fight the match would surely come to Los Angeles. Tlila all had a nice listen to It, and Able drew all kinds of space for his talk. The featherweight champion said he owed it to McCarey to battle with Moran here, for Mac had helped him to many purses when business was slack. Now Attell will have to make good on his talk, and the chances are that he will find a way out of it unless the local club offers a purse as large as that which other promoters are sure to hang up. One way in which Abie can glide by and at the same time appear to be doing the right thing would be to dicker along until it was too late to put the fight on before the 16th of next month, for after that date there will be nothing doing in any thing but limited engagements. Up to last night McCarey was In hopes of getting the mill, although he had nothing tangible to go on. He is banking on Attell's promise to pull off the fight this way. and until the negotiations are all closed will still consider the affair as the last one of his twenty-round bouts. Moran and Attell would undoubtedly at tract as large a crowd, ,and with the gate as high, as any card that Is in prospect. All who remember the battle between Neil and Attell would be sure to make a run for the ticket window, for since Mo ran outfought the California boy he is considered a worthy foe for Abie. The English lad must be some of a fighter, no matter whether Ne'.l has gone back or Is still as good as ever. Ex perts have pronounced the newcomer as a replica of George Dixon and one' who knows what to do with his two powerful hands. In the fight with Neil. Moran showed extreme cleverness, as well as an ability to take what punishment was offered without backing up. He was Frankie's master at all points of the game, and made a most favorable impression on all who saw him. Since he last met and defeated Neil Attell has developed a punch which is hard enough to put any of them out of business and in a mix with the British champion he would undoubtedly try to land it for a knockout. The two little fellows in a slugging match, with all science thrown to the winds, as was the case in the Neil-Attell battle, would be something to think about in after years and McCarey will be lucky indeed in securing the bout. Attell is always there with an eye to the main chance, and it is not to be ex pected that he will sign with McCarey unless the latter offers a big guarantee or purse. Mac usually fights shy of such an arrangement, and unless he feels that the meeting would be a record breaker so far as attendance is concerned, he will not be there when the big bids begin to pour in. Mike Twin Sullivan and Kid Farmer are still busy preparing for their battle next Wednesday, and all .the dope is still in favor of the bald-headed one. Interest in the fight is not intense, and neither training camp is the subject of much inspection, so the fighters can work in comparative quiet. While he is not conceded much of a chance. Farmer feels that he has every thing to gain and but little to lose in his battle with Sullivan. The Kid, should he win, will be in a position to get on in some big bouts and with, men of class, while should he receive the verdict that is expected he would be nothing out. He has no reputation as a welterweight to speak of, and the beating which seems to be in store for him will not detract from his present worth as a drawing card. ' Sullivan, on the other hand, must win this buttle in order to stay with the live ones in his class. A defeat by a man of Farmer's questioned caliber would hurt the Twin beyond measure, and he will leave no stone unturned to whip his little thought of foe.
