RALEIGH LOWERS
A TRACK RECORD
Consistent Son of Basset/aw
Runs Mile and 40 Yards
in 1:40
JOE MURPHY
A %'cry ordinary card -was offered at
Emeryville yesterday. Two favorites
came home in front and the other
choices failed dismally. Sir Fretful at
15 to l was the choicest morsel of the
afternoon, as the Hamilton stable's
gelding- came home with odds of 15
to 1 chalked against him. It was
the maiden victory of the winner. He
had been selected frequently to do
the trick in the past, but had failed
repeatedly, and his victory yesterday
surprised everybody.
Raleigh was one of the favorites to
win. The reliable son of Bassetlaw
won the third event at a mile and 20
yards and established a new track
record for the distance by cutting a
fifth of a second off the former track
record of 1:40 1-5 established by W. T.
Overton. November 7, 190S, carrying
102 pounds. Raleigh carried*ll4 pounds
yesterday when he performed the feat.
Opposed to Doss' entry .was a good
field of distance performers, which in
cluded R. Mackenzie's clever performer,
Michael Angelo. and the good Bonnie
Bard. Angelo opened favorite, but the
play was centered on Raleigh. His
price was hammered from 5 to 2 to
11 to 5, and lie closed favorite.
Raleigh ran a game race and over
took Bonnie Bard, which led until close
to the wire. The winner won going
away. Eddie Graney, from a p<jor
start, finished in third place andvwould
have been a keen contender with an
even break. Michael Angelo showed
good speed until the stretch, when he
weakened noticeably.
-The layers' handicap was run in the
fourth event for the benefit of the pen
cilers. It was the dally six and a half
I furlongs event which provided the joke
race of the afternoon. Starter Holtman
tried to get the field away, but he had
as much success as he had had in his
previous experience at 'this point. The
field got off like a funeral. Severalof
them were detained, but fortunately
they were not the favorites, so the
crowd did not have a chance to roar.
Likely Dieudonne made the pace to
the stretch, when Phil Mohr assumed
the lead. Veneta Strome,. the favorite,
was well placed until the stretch, but
Taplin* rode the choice into a pocket,
from which he was unable to extricate
her. It was a .bungling ride on the
little Fresnoan's part, for Mackenzie's
entry would probably have romped
with fair luck. Marchmonet was third,
a head behlsd Likely Dieudonne.
Green Isle was backed into favorit
ism to win the maiden 2 year old
event, which was the first race on the
card. Garner piloted the filly, which
was full of run and won a nice vic
t"'-v' from Dutch Rock, with Dublin
Minstrel third.
v . E. Cotton's entry, Gramercy,
finally. found a spot and cantered home
an easy winner" in the second event at
clx furlongs. The winner was 8 to 1
in the betting. Braxton being the fa
vorite at 16 to 5. Glass rode the .-.win
ner and made his move in the stretch,
when his mount responded gamely, win
ning going away from Frank G.Ho
gan and Braxton.
, J.*t^ Browns entry, Nebulosus, which
has been frequently knocking at the
door, finally found his Way down In
front. He was 5 to 1 to capture the
fifth event, and Taplin broke ..his
maiden by putting the son of SL Sym
phorien over a winner. . Captain»Bur
nett was made the choice and the-ag-ed
son of Rubicon ran his : usual consist
ent race by finishing third after show-

SCHOOL ATHLETICS
AN ETHICAL ASSET
Fifty Per Cent Improvement in
- Physique, Discipline, and
Mental Alertness
NEW YORK. Dec. 27. — That the in
troduction, of systematic . athletics in
the public schools In the United States
has resulted in a 50 per cent Improve
ment not only in physique, but in eth
ics, discipline, and mental alertness, is
the assertion of General Georgre W.
Wlngate, president of the New York
public schools athletic league, in his
annual [report just given to the public
He says In part:
"The day of experiments In this mat
ter of athletics . has now long passed.
It has now become established upon
such a firm foundation in both the
schools and the; public .estimation that
its future is assured..
'"With , every year - the standard of
athletic- ability In our public schools
becomes higher and records which
were considered wonderful when made
are surpassed, alertness of mind and
body and I the general air of strength
and health resulting from the athletic
exercises which the children have pur
sued. Gratifying as this is, from the
physical side, the improvement on the
side of ethics, school discipline and
esprit dv corps is even greater, a faqt
which has converted the supervising
and teaching force of the school into
firm supporters of the work.
. "The New York public schools ath
letic league, formed in- 1903, Is now the
largest athletic organization In the
world. Its success has caused the for
mation of similar leagues, in 16 of the
great cities, of the country and more
are constantly adopting its methods.
"A hundred thousand school children
took active part in the league's com
petitions during the last year. For ex
ample, 32,750 children participated in
jumping contests/while 14,500 boys
competed In 'chinning* and 8,000 In
class running. Thirty thousand were
entered in the various field day games,
at which 3,700 medals and 150 banners
were awarded."
