The California section of the American
Power Boat association was launched
ye*t«rte<r in its official capacity as the
governing body of motor boat racing
and for tlic general welfare of this sport
on the Pa'Mfie coast. The association
was formed last November, but the
« barter was signed only recently and
was approved by the governing body in
New York.
Yesterday the first general meeting
of the regularly organized body was
held and officers for the 1 r»l3 season
were elected, follows:
Chairman, T. TI. Cory, San Vranclsro

Now that tho section has been or

other motor boat clubs of the state
will follow in its footsteps and join
hands with it. None of the other motor

enough at present to organize su'h a

They Say Our Amateur Laws Are Too Strict
(Special Cable to The Call)
STOCKHOLM. Feb. 2.—Secretary
James E. Sullivan's announcement of
Thorpes disqualification has caused a
great stir in the Swedish athletic world.
Most athletes are of the opinion that
the rules of amateurs are too severe
ever to be adhered to strictly, as many
exceptions are made to the present
rules, giving reimbursements to true
amateurs in the form of pay for the
salaries lost during their training. The
majority of athletes are poor, and it is
difficult to draw the line. Most athletes
consider that new and less stringent
rules of amateurship must be insti
Bindings Forbidden and Soft
Knuckle Brigade Howls
in Unison
(Special Dispatch to Tbe CalU
CHICAGO, Feb. 3. — Loud and
grievous squeals of protest are going
up from the rank and file of the pug
brigade, said protests being against a
ruling by the New York boxing com
mission. The particular mandate pro
hibits the use of adhesive tape in con
nection with soft bandages for the
hands, and it bars them forever.
The use of tape to bind the gauze
strips over the knuckles securely and
protect the hands from breakage has
become a time honored custom. There
are pefformers in plenty whose maul
ers would never stand the strain of
uondKant hitting unless provided with
the said covering. The action of the
commission, it is generally admitted,
was brought about by the abuse
rather than the use of the tape.
All of the leading boxers arc ac
customed to utilize tape fur the pro
tection of their hands and if they are
prevented from so doing it will be
found in a majority of cases that they
will prefer to remain on the defensive
when in action, rather than' run the
risk of putting their knuckles to the

LONDON, Feb. 3.—The Daily Mail's
Gothenberg correspondent says it is
the opinion of M. Hellstrom, secretary
of the Swedish Olympic committee, that
the athletic prizes can not be taken
from *Thorpe, and the protest to be of
any value ought to have been lodged
one month after the conclusion of the
Sigfrid Edestom. chairman of the
Olympic games organization commit

"We received,' , said Edestom, "a

Veteran George Slosson Is
Beaten, 400 to 317, by
Koji Yamada, the sensational Jap
anese billiard player, made his debut
before a local audience last night,
when he defeated George Slosson, the
veteran bJlliardist, in the first match
of 400 points at Wright's parlor. Ya
mada won the match by a score of 400
to 317.
The game was the IS-2 balk line
stylo and a big crowd was present to
see experts play. Both men played
slightly below their usual form, due
to the fact that they were playing on
a regulation match table, which was
the first table of its kind they had
encountered on their tour. All of the
tables in tho east, middle west and
northwest were of the hump cushion
variety. The remaining three matches
should bring about better results, as
the cueists arc now accustomed to the
straight cushion.
Both players kept pretty well to
gether during the first half of the
match. In the early part of the play
Sloseon look a, slight load, but in the
twelfth inning Yamada with a run of
20 got on even terms with his oppo
nent, and from then on he forged" to
the front.
Sloß3on's best efforts were in the
seventh and eighth innings, when he
annexed 47 and 78. respective];'. In
the twenty-fifth inning Yamada with a
magnificent run of 60 forged into a \
commanding lead and retained it to tho '
Hosson had the hiarh run with 7S
points, while Yamada'a best effort was

game. The men meet again tonight in

Ewing Says He Won't Meet
Terms Demanded by .
The best hitter in the Pacific Coast
league, Matty Mclntyre of the Seahs
is lost to the local club. According
to a letter just received by J. Cal
Kwing of the San Francisco team from
Mclntyre, the latter declares that un
less more money is forthcoming he
will remain in Detroit and play inde
pendent ball. Ewing says that Mc-
Intyres letter was very caustic. The
local baseball magnate declares that
he boosted Mclntyre's contract $75
above the mark he received last season,
and declares that he can not see where
the former White Sox star is worth
any more.
Ewing says Mclntyre intimated in his
letter that he would like to be released I
to the Vancouver club.
It is claimed that Ewing gave Co
miskey $1,000 for Mclntyre and the
agreement between the pair was that
if Mclntyre was dissatisfied with con
dition.s out here be was to bo turned
back to the Chrcago American club. It
is entirely up to Ewing whether Mc
lntyre plays professional ball again or
Harry Walton, business manager of

Boycs springs is »an ideal place for
ball players to get into condition.

Frank Ish. the local baseball mag
nate, is down around Panama looking
at the canal and resting. He will prob
ably be back in time for the opening
of the baseball season.

' The. loss of Mclntyre will weaken the
Seals' outfield. Probably when the se
lections are "made for permanent
berths, Howard njight be shoved to
the outfield and ' Roy MeAjdle given
the first Pack. The latter is a classy
first saeker, but his weakness seems
to be his inability to hit. Mac ha<l a
good season with the bat two years

Mission Must Prove Wally a Professional
Mission high school athletic officials
will appear before the registration
committee of the Academic Athletic
league this afternoon and attempt to
prove that Wally Barnes of Lowell
high is a professional athlete. The
registration committee, consisting of
Archie Cloud. Sydney A. Tibbetts and
R. H. Dodd. will hear the evidence and
give their verdict. At the first meet
ing of this committee an adjournment
was made, as it was pointed out that
Mission's charges were based on hear
say and that no facts were produced to
warrant the committee taking any
The Barnes case has more ex
citement in local athletic circles during'
the last week than anything , else. It is
conceded that if Barnes is guilty, as is
charged, more than 60 ppr cent of the
athletes of the state will fall into the
same category.
Barnes himself never has received
money for participating in baseball,
neither does he know of any pro
fessional with whom he has played.
The young athlete has the entire back
ing and sympathy of the Lowell school,
which he attends, and it is rumored
that if he is professionalized the. school
will appeal the case to a higher court.
From Principal Morton down to the
newest icrub athlete there is not a man
at Lowell who can see where Barnes
is the black sheep he is charged with
being, and the whole school is ready
to go to the bat for him.
