All of the larger colleges booked to participate in the annual rowing re patta are turning attention to the con ditioning of their crews, and with the coming of May track athletes will take on new life. College crews are working hard for , the Poughkeepsie regatta, to be held i on June 26. Tale's green crew is mak ing vigorous efforts to get Into shape for the match with the midshipmen at Annapolis next Saturday. Much Interest is evinced in the negotiations now going on between Harvard and Yale for an athletic meet- Ing on this side of the Atlantic during the summer with the Oxford and Cam bridge university teams, and tbe hope Is everywhere expressed that the Eng lishmen can be induced to come over. Miss Annette Bellerman. the world's champion woman swimmer, -will ar rive in .New York during the week and will give exhibitions in various cities. It is not Improbable that a race be tween the Australian woman and Miss EUallne Golding of Bath Beach, N.Y., will be arranged. The English turf will again see Rich ard Croker's stable on the famous tracks this season. Croker has sent a string of horses across the Irish chan nel with Orby, a grandson of Flying Fox, who won the Derby In 1E99. at its head. With this horse Croker hopes to land the coveted Derby this year. General regret is expressed on the continent that William K. Vanderbilfs star performer Maintenon has gone wrong and been relegated to the stud. Much of the $246,000 won by the Van derbllt stable last year was brought borne by this horse. Young Jay Gould. It is expected, will win tbe International court tennis championship now being contested in London. The next big stake event of tbe east ern horse racing season will be the Metropolitan handicap on May 9 at Bel mont park. Twenty-seven horses, a majority of them pood performers, are entered.

A. Smyth The 'college oarsmen, undaunted by their experiences of r \u25a0 Saturday, when their shells were swamped during tbe progress of a race on Rlchardsons bay, will meet on the 3fl.me course this morning, when they hope smooth wa ter will be. available for the eight oared shells. The competing crews will represent Stanford university and the University of California. The crack Washington crew will be an absentee, the men having departed for the north immediately after the futile attempt to race on Saturday. Having learned by, bitter experience that the afternoon winds will spoil the course for racing, the' boating authori ties of the universities have announced the race for 10 o'clock this morning. Persons from this city wishing to wit ness the race should leave here on the 9:15 boat. 'As the race will be fin ished at the ferry slip, spectators will not have far to walk to see the strug gle between the rival crews. Neither of the eights was out yester day. Both shells had been damaged on Saturday and required considerable tuning up to fit them for the severe competition through which they must pass today. "Bill" Carter of Stanford spent the greater part of the day upon the cardinal shell ana when be had completed his task the boat showed no ill effects of the buffeting by the waves on Saturday. The members of the two crews were about Sausallto and, like their boats, they were not^any the worse for the exciting . experiences through which they had passed the day before. Captain Zimmerman of the Stanford crew and Conant, the stroke, had remained in the water so long on Saturday in order to care for their boat that they were exhausted when they finally went ashore. The other members of the crew were ready to go out at a moment's notice and race- Four, of the Stanford varsity were out yesterday in the freshman shell, but the other members took their exercise in a stroll along the Sausalito water front None of the California men were on the water. The big shell was out of commission, while some person cele brating the opening of tho yachting season had hurled a coffee cup or other missile through the .four oared shell, making that unavailable for practice. The officers for today's race will be selected from among the college men who are on the ground this morning before the start of the race. The con dition of the water will have a bearing on the location of the course for the regatta next year..' It is expected the boating authorities will discuss this question thoroughly at the proper time. Only three courses are available — those at Sausalito. Oakland estuary -and Stockton. The Stanford men seem set against the estuary and it is said they will not entertain the thought of rac ing there. The Stockton course is an ideal one, the water being perfect for a regatta. The^ Stockton people are anx ious to have the collegians race there. The fate of the Richardsons bay course will be decided today, and its behavior will be watched with interest. ALL-STAR SOCKER TEAM TIES WITH THE HORNETS OAKLAND, April 28.— Ninety min utes of rather interesting association football was provided at Freeman's park this afternoon by the Oakland Hornets and a combined eleven, sup posedly the stars of the other teams in the league. When taps sounded the post mortem developed a two goal draw, which was a fair reflex of the play. There was one change from the origi nal selection in the combined team, Bernard of the Vampires taking the place of E." Fay, ' who was Indisposed. Shanks, a recent, arrival from' South Africa, was included in the Hornet team and Arnold took the place of Meachim at half back. It was an even game all the way and for an eleven which never before had played together, the star team made a fine showing. Peterson was the stellar performer. McKiernon. the Al bion half back, also was conspicuous. McKenzie scored the finest goal of the game, catching a center from -Elliott on his head and cleverly diverting- the sphere into the goal. . ' The score at the interval was one goal each. Shanks having, tallied for the Hornets and Tommy Fay for the other team. The second period was slower, but two more goals, being scored. Burns, with a pretty individual effort, notched the second point 'for the combined eleven and McKenzie: put one through for the Hornets'. The , lineup: Hornets — ifcßltchie, Elliot, Gore, McLacblan, A . McKenzie, Shanks. Carter, Waeber, A. Mc- Kenzie, Arnold and Scott. . \u25a0 < . \u25a0 • Picked team— McFarlane, Peterson,' Woodemi, McKiernon, Anderson, Duneanson, Wright, Ber nard. T. Far i Petrie and Burns. > .

The new home of the club was taxed to its utmost capacity. Perhaps the .best event of the day was the four oared barge race between rival crews of the club. - Joe Lundie (bow), "Taf'.Reardon (forward waist), Otto Wallflsch (after waist) and Romer Shawhan (bow), Cravin Nott (forward waist). Eugene Breasnean (after waist) and Ed, Knottner (stroke), comprised the other. From the ."starting- point, to the steamship Algoa,; which served as a stakeboat, the crews rowed "neck and neck." At , the turn the latter crew drew away from ; the heavy weights and finished three < lengths in advance. The course was 1% miles in length. . '"\u25a0'. \u0084R.'Hannan of. the Ariel rowing club won the mile outrigger skiff race. F. Corfield, P. Bergman, E. Knottner,. F. C. Lodt and; Al Korn, all of the South ', End club, were pitted i against , him. The tide played havoc with the oarsmen for a time, but served its purpose by making the race a close j one."; The men '\u25a0 finished in one, two, three .order, and not even a boat \u25a0 length separated the ' men. , * " The third event was ,an exhibition of high, fancy diving -by Otto W'all fisch, "Tat" Reardan, Eugene Breas nean and W. C. Pomin. The "Otto and Tat" double diving stunt was repeated for the benefit of the ladies. : Several new and more difficult dives were added :to the repertoire yesterday, and ; those present were not slow in showing ' their appreciation. I Joe Lundie and Bert , Marsh gave a i four round burlesque exhibition of box :in^. , Captain Wilson of . the Ariel club failed in the attempt to outrow the four oared barge crew of , the South End club. Wilson, in his racing skiff, gave the crew a battle all the way and perhaps would have won had not a launch interfered with his progress. ;. The .two v bidarki canoes belonging to Otto Wallfisch gave no end. of amuse ment to; the spectators. 1 S First "Tat" Reardan and Wallfisch , raced and -then Eugene Breasnean and Romer Shaw han took a turn.

Commodore John C Brickell fired the preparatory, gun from the flagship Genesta at 10 o'clock and soon jibs were run up and moorings cast off. All those who ; had ; mainsails set , followed the commodore. ; He boxed around off Bel vedere until the" fleet was joined by all the yachts^in commission; when he fired another gun and the cruise was on. '. ?,The \ start iijvaa made : at ; 11 o'clock. It was' shortitacks to Peninsula point, where the, wind was found to be light and a leg. was made over in the direc tion'of the channel. This course i, was held until. the:; wind freshened, 'when the flagship > was sent about arid; the yachtsheaded for Sausalito. Working well ; inshore, salutes were exchanged with the ifcraf t of the ' San , Francisco yacht club;]. : As the i Corinthians ; went by/ they -were joined by the latter and all- worked 1 out- toward the heads, v Off Sausalito the wind freshened .more : and the yachts went along with. the lee rails just awash. : It was a long leg to.Yel low bluff, where sheets were slackened and a course;shaped 'for Fort Mason. * Off the fort -it was found that about half 'the fleet had run into a calm and was ; some distance "behind. Commo dore Brickell signaled those with , him to put out through the Golden ; gate. Clear, of * the gate the fleet picked up the ground swell, .but" held a good wind.' The yachts headed seaward un til' the Cliff house was in sight. By this time the f laggards ; had reached the fort, and the commodore signaled to; slack sheets. All held on to the windward work until he had passed through the fleet, receiving its ' salutes as he went 1 by. When he had worked clear the other yachts followed in his wake. J:'":' ; -. ,-\u25a0 ;-' ' \u25a0*\u25a0'- _ \u25a0•- ' By this ;• time 23 yachts of the Corinthians were 'in line, with five or six of : the San Francisco club.

Wind arid tide were so favorable when the ferry slips "were ' reached that Commodore Brickell; signaled to continue on to Mission rock. - This was the first time the yachts had passed the ferry slips on'an opening, cruise. .Going "i about at Mission rock tho. fleet hauled on . the wind and stood along the city : front for some distance, when : signals were given to ease off sheets a bit and stand over to Angel island, passing to leeward of Point Blunt. ..Although the yachts were in the channel and;..the- tide on the ebb, hardly any sea , was running. Passim? around Angef island sheets were tailed on again and sails flat tened Jfor a beat through Raccoon straits.
