AQUATICS MAKE MUCH PROGRESS EXPERTS SAY 1909 SHOWED ADVANCEMENT SWIMMERS MAKE REAL STRIDES IN METHODS Strokes and Styles Changing as Re sults cf Practical Experiments Made by Students of the Sport NEW YORK, Jan. 15.—T0 the casual observer and to those who consider records the criterion of progress the year 1909 may not have a emed a very remarkable one In aquatics. But to the close student of the sport it was a year of great achievement and won derful improvement. During the twelve months just elapsed both theoretical and prai swimmers ndvanced rapidly, and as a class, not individually. Coaches like McKenzle, McCormlck, Sullivan. Kist lcr, Cady, Meifert, Helm and I'avill gave close attention to the new phases of the crawl stroke, studying and ex perimenting until each had worked out a style of his own, in many cases to tally different In action and movement from the original Australian variety introduced here in 1904. Frank Sullivan of the Illinois A. C. of Chicago proved the most successful of the lot, and his remarkable achieve ment In taking five boys totally tenor ant of the art of natation and develop ing them in less than two years into a world record team tells its own tale of the value of the stroke. It is a strict ly American product, the long, easy, straight arm reach, narrow leg thresh | and absolutely independent action of arms and legs, being diametrically the reverse of the short, jerky arm move- I merit, wide kick and synchronous time of the Australian variety. Sullivan's special pupils—Richard | Frizelle, Harry Hebner, William Vos burgh, Perry McGillivray and Leslie Chlville —made good after only a few months of tuition, but it was only dur ing 1909 that they reached champion ship form. Leslie Chlville proved a mediocre sprinter, but one of the best distance swimmers in the country. The other four showed phenomenal Bpeed at 50, 100 and 2:!0 yards, ami on May 20, In Chicago, brought down the 400 --yard world's record of 4:18 2-6, held by ; the New York team composed of Dan- j iels, Trubenbach, Goodwin and South, ] to 4:084-5. None of the boys has yet reached his twentieth year, and Mc- Qillivray is only 14. Frivelle has done such sterling work of late as to be classed by western experts second only to Daniels as an all around swimmer. Youngsters Give PromiGe It is the high standard of the young;* sters and novices that gave most en- i couragement during the year, when i , boys from 14 to 18 years of age begin to press the veteran champions, and in . | many instances elbow them uoi of the , way, one begins to realize the great I ; strides that are being made and to , speculate on what the newcomers will do when they reach maturity. And the advance is real, not com- - parative, for the old-timers have not ' let grass grown under their f ft. C. '.\l. Daniels of the New York Athletic . tub :Hi i effectively those who said he was on the decline by estab lishing a few more records at distance swimming and then going after tin back stroke figures. He.created new ones en Dcci tnber 11. when In- covered the classic 150 yards in 2:04 2-6 from a; ■ start ii a geventy-flve-foot pool.

Ayres and P. Scott of Philadelphia; J. Bain, J. Cutnell and S. Maisack of Pittsburg; .f. Macdermott. H. tfuzzah. J. 11. Griffin and W. S. Merriam of . Chicago. Several new teams were formed dur ing the year either by the organizing of swimming clubs or by the op ni x of aquatic departments in all. clubs. The Ariro S. C. and T. M. <'. A. of Philadelphia became active in the sport; the City club of New fork con- I eluded plans to do the same; the I'itis liurg A. C. began to corral mati ri tl, and New Orleans, Louisville, Denver, Seattle and San Francisco all ac quired new swimming clubs. Progress Among Colleges Among the colleges progress was marked. Not only did several institu tions take up swimming as a sport to be fostered, but teams as a rule Im proved and the opening of !!:•■ Car negie natatorium at Yale, gave new impetus to athletics. The Intercolle giate Swimming association took into its own hands the revising oi water polo and swimming rules and showed that in the future it Intends to do ii own share of the work. Colle swimmers performed creditably in the national and district ■ hips i and what was even more gratifying to those who look into the future, fresh men teams were seen in some of the universities and sought meets with each other. That the national A. A. I', champion- j ships did not always 1111 in a satlst tory way must be attributed to the system now In vogue of holding them one at a time in distant parts oi country and to Bomewhnt strained re lations between the leading i lubs. Still, if the national events did not bring out representative fields, the district cham pionships were splendidly attended and frequently resulted in new records and ting competition. It might be a good thing for the authorities to bo back, at least for a trial, to the old method of holding all the events in one big meet. The majority of swim mers .■"'•in to think that it would im prove matters a lot. Swimming Records of Year Taken all together, there \yas mil li , to be satisfied with during the year, and we may well congratulate ourselv 8 on the gradual, but continuous, pr<>ar ress of a sport that must take pre cedence as the most useful in exist ence.

SPALDING'S BASEBALL GUIDE FOR 1910 OUT The third annual Issue of Spalding'S Official Baseball Record, which has .nine in be recognized as the statUtl ,.,i compendium of the national game, has just been issued for the season or 1910. it is edited by John B. Foster Of New York, and contains a wealth of baseball information, being larger than the previous issues. Besides tin official averages of the National and American and the minor leagues, the Record also contains a diagram of the race of each organization, a short ac count of the contest and notes of the game. The "Year in Baseball" Is an account of the season's happenings as recorded day by day for the entire year, and is interesting mutter for the fans. A system of arrangement in this year's Record classifies Into parts I and 11 the data concerning the past season and that of previous years, rendering a more marked distinction between the two divisions than In previous issues. The matter in part II is kept up to date and places before the baseball public much historical information that would otherwise never reach those in len sted, and in the course of time prob ably be unattainable. Many an old time follower of the game will hearken back to other days and scenes when he . the name of some player whose name was as familiar to him in those days as the celebrities of the diamond are today to his children and grand children. The results of world's series games, since their inauguration in 18i 1 to the present time, are also given, with names of players participating. Records for the various positions on a team, with results of unusual incidents in the game, forms another chapter in the book, while the pictorial end sur passes previous issues In that particu lar feature, world's series scenes of 1909 being shown, with action pictures of the leading participants and other play ers whose remarkable work during the season entitles them to that distinc tion.

That In every way de scribes Johnny Taral, one of the newest crop of jockeys now riding at the Mon crief park track at Jacksonville. When the boy's name is posted on the jockey board old-timers must recall the days when his father, Fred Taral, was Win ning stake after stake and running into the reputation of being one of the best riders this country ever produced. When Fred retired after more than a score of years In the saddle it was thought that the name of Taral would be lost to the turf for all time. There was but one who could bid to uphold iho name, and that was Johnny. True, the boy had already done some riding, but his father was wont to have him quit It. He tried to set the boy studying law, and Johnny was the obediient lad for a while. He got along fairly well for a while, but when the truth of that Old saying, "What's bred in the bone will come out in the flesh," asserted itself rind back to the ponies went Mas ter Johnny. He hit the trail for Jack sonville, and there he is now trying to start a record that will compare favor ably with that of his daddy's, So far Johnny has not shown to any great advantage, but that is due to the laet that he has not had the oppor tunity. The few mounts he has had Taral has a good seat and a nice pair of hands, and racegoers predict that lie long he will be well started on the road to fame. The buy Hs not a novice by any means, lie rode a year in Aus tria at the same time his father was there working as a jockey, and he had a big share of good luck. The event I hat is today marked as lii —= finales; effort was run at Budapest fer a stake called the Szoeheni prize. Johnny anil Papa Fred had mounts in the race, Which was of the best contested at the meeting. Countess S/.e. heni, who was formerly Miss Gladys Yandorbilt, was :il the track that day. and when she saw Johnny brat his father's horse] by a short head for the prize she was as vociferous as Others at the course. Fred got the laugh from all hands. but it was a proud moment for the veteran rider. Other races Johnny won, and he got a goodly share of winning mounts. His curly experiences earned him such a tidy sum that independence blossomed in him. and without father's onsen! he rsjn off and got married last June. Later he got the parental bless ing, and now Father Fred is going to do all he can to make his chosen career a suc-jess.
