Another Jap Net Artist
Conies Up for Attention
According to letters received from Cal
cutta. India, there Is the possibility that
another Japanese wizard of the racquet
may seek to dim some of the glory that j
has fallen to Icblya Kumagae on the
American court j.
The player in question is one discov

Brookes, the Australian.
He Is .Tenjo Shimidz.it. and mnnv who
have traveled in the orient declare him
to he the superior of Kt magae in his
ability to play with rat speed and

Brookes tried Shimidzu out in a spe

Shimidzu has Just made a complete
cleanup of the championships at Bengal,

In tbe final singles he defeated bis

He won in the doubles wjth another
Japanese, K. Okamoto. as his partner.
He nlso won in th® mixed doubles with
an English woman. Mrs. Keavs.
In all of his matches Shimidzu did not

CHICAGO, April 24.—“ Any team
that can beat the Reds this year will
win the pennant,” said Scout Patsy
Donovan of the Cubs today.
“They look fully as good as they
did last season, and it will take some

New Pitching Code
Majors Faithfully Living Up
to Rules—lntentional
Pass Still Goes.
NEW YORK, April 24.—N0 riots, blood
shed or fatal trimmings have attended
the enforcement of the new major league
pitching rules.
Htirlers of both leagues are keeping
so close to the law that very few com
plaints have been made.
The Boston Red Sox in a game a few
days ago with the Yanks, accused Bob
Sbawkey of doctoring the bail, but the
umpires could find no evidence.
What effect it has in batting is impos
sible to estimate so early in the season.
However, one result is apparent—the
game has not been speeded up.
The major games so far this season
have averaged two hours and ten min
Some pitchers, such as Jaek Quinn of
the Yankees, are naturally slow workers
in the box.
Covelesikie. spitball pitcher, and A1
Sothoron. a former "shiner.'' pitched one
of the fastest games of the season In
one hour and thirty-six mtuntes.
The intentional pass -may have been
curbed by the new rules, but it has not
been stopped.
It is Just as easy to get rid of a dan
gerous batter by a base on balls as it
was before.

Sensational Driver Coming
With Goux to Try for 500-
Mile Laurels.
Andre Boillot has been named as sec
ond member of the Peugeot triumvirate
that will endeavor to hoist the tricolor
above the flags of competing nations
during the eighth international 500-mile
sweepstakes on the Indianapolis speed
way, Monday, May 31, according to an
nouncement made at local speedway head
quarters today.
With Jules Goux and Andre Boillot in
the fold, the prospects of the famous
French racing combination being to
assume a decidedly rosy hue, and it it
the freely expressed sentiment of the
wiseacres that Peugeot is the team the
rest of the contenders will have to beat.
Andre Boillot looms up as a worthy*
successor to the laurels that crowned the
brow of his famous brother Georges, con
ceded to be the greatest driver who ever
held a steering wheel.
In the last Targo Florio, run over the
difficult mountain passes of Sicily, be
gave the most sensational exhibition of
driving in history, accepting every risk
and registering miraculous escapes no
less than six times.
His final feat of dareoeviltry con
sisted of colliding with the grandstands
to avoid hitting a spectator who had
wandered on the course, and then, finding
himself completely turned aronud. throw
ing on the power and cutting the finish
line in reverse.
During the world war Boillot was a
French ace, and the utter disregard for
safety that he acquired during his nu
merous air combats seems to have per
sisted with him into his racing career.
IN 1910 EVENT.
Boillot's American racing debut was
made during the Indianapolis contest of
1919, but he met with disappointment on
this occasion, being turned back when
running in thirl position, within twentv
miles of the finish, due to the collapse of
a treacherous wire wheel.
The mount that Boillot ezndied on this
occasion was of the same size as those
being groomed lor this year's classic, and
It was largely due to its excellent show
ing against its larger rivals th.-t the new
speedway racing rules limiting piston
t displacement to IS3 cubic inches were
j placed into effect.
Louis Chevrolet will enjoy the thrill
m competing in the 1920 speedway race
j t-° Fin his owu money, for yesterday this
veteran race pilot presented Ed Reeser
: T - L. Marshall with his cheek for
5100 as his individual contribution to
the merchants and manufacturers laD
prize fund, which i 9 now poing collected.
The $20,000 fund to be distriouted to
; the leading driver in ea-h of the 200 laps
I of the race is rapidly swelling
: Chevrolet will stand an excellent
chance of seeing one of the six speed
! creations which will represent his me
-1 chanical genius in ths race grab the SIOO
prize he is hanging up. Three Monroe
cars depicting hours of attention from
this driver and engineer, who is also
j captain of the team, will make tl.eir
tirst racing expedition Mav 31 and
trio of Frontenaes. which
