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.

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.

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. Besides the pictures mentioned
group pictures of the champion in each
league are also given.
