Two Coast Records by Bob
Vlught and Charles
Hoenisch
WILLIAM UNMACK
Ralph Rose and Pat Donovan again
inscribed their names on the scroll of
fame last night by breaking world's
records in the IS pound shot put and
Sβ pound weight for height events re
spectively, at the annual indoor meet
held at the Auditorium by the Olympic
club. Ric Templeton also had the
satisfaction of getting iii the world's
record holder class by tying the 75
yard low hurdle mark when he stepped
the distance in nine seconds.
Rose broke the record of 44 feet 1 1-8
inchee made by Pat McDonald In New
York last year, and by so doing re
gained the honor thar*McDonald took
from hlni. Rose showed last night
that his put was no fluke, for twice
during the competition he smashed Mc-
Donald's figures. In the first put of
the final round the big native son
heaved the pill out to 44 feet 2V S in
ches or 1 3-S inches better than Mc-
Donald's figure.
STILL MORE SLAUGHTER
Xot satisfied with that, Rose came
back In his last put and sent out a
mighty heave that the galleryites
rould see had broken all previous rec- i
ords. When measured, the put showed
that the local man had smashed Me
iJonald's figure to smithereens, break-
Ing It by 1 foot 4 5-8 inches with a put
of 45 feet s*i inches. This Is a mark
that will set the easterners thinking,
and It will be some time before it is
broken.
Pat Donovan of the Pastime club
«as also in the same great form he
<i»played last week, but last night
t-howed a better angle to his puts than
previously. He sent the 56 pound mis
sile skyward a distance of 46 feet 7
hes, which is exactly half an inch
better than his own previous world's
record. After this Donovan tried for
a better record, and had the drum set
at 16 feet 9 inches.
'TWAS TOO BAD, PAT!
Twice out of his thre* throws he
ame within the merest fraction of an
inch of the drum. His last throw found
him off his angle again and the big ball
flew upward better than four inches
above the drum, but too far away to
touch it. With all his chances gone
to better his new record of 16 feet V
inches officially, Donovan requested
that he be allowed another trial as an
exhibition, and this time he hit the
'iruni a terrific crack, but it was no
use for an official record.
VLIGHT DOES THIXGS
Bobby Vlught of St. Mary's college
showed that he Is to be reckoned one
of the speediest distance men on this
< oast. He ran a remarkable rate in
3,960 yard event, outdistancing the
well known Walter McClure of Oregon
by nearly 100 yards. Vlught set the
l>ace from the start. He showed great
judgment and kept up a steady, long
stride the whole distance. He hardly
varied in his pace throughout the e\n
tire race. McClure was quite evidently
out of form, but even allowing that he
!:ad been. It is doubtful if he could
beat Vlught.
MeCLIRE RUNS GOOD RACE
McClure ran a good race and the
ght for second place between him and
Mlllard of the Olympic club gave the
touch of excitement that was wanted,
f-Ince Vlught made such a runaway of
the affair. McClure showed he had a
great sprint, and sustained it, with the
i <*sult that Millard had to take third
place. '
It was not generally known that the
speedy Ric Ternpleton equaled the
world's record in the 75 yard low
hurdles when ho ran the distance in
nine seconds flat. This is the same
time established by J. J. Eller in New
York last January when he brok% For
<*t Smithson's time of 9 1-5. Temple
t"n ran a pretty race in both his heatr
and finals, and in the heat of the low
Micks inado a dead heat with iSmith
-808,
Templcton ran a pretty race in both
his heats and finals, and in the heat of
*iie low sticks made a dead heat with
llthson.
IVORLD RECORD TIED
In the final, however, Templeton
came through from the last barrier in
pplendid syle and nosed Smithson out
in as pretty a sprint for the tape as
ever was seen in an Indoor meet, and
tlei the world record.
over the sticks last night that has
been so characteristic of all his rac
ing. Last night, however he had to
admit defeat to a speedier lad, who
look, to hav2 a great future for Um
self. Many were arguing that Smith
sou had lost his speed, but that hardly
seems feasable, seeing that Templeton
did faster time in the low hurdles than
isrnithson lias ever accomplished.
George Horlne and Ollie Snedigar of
the Olympic club both had an interest
ing tussle in the three standing jumps,
Horine eventually winning with three
leaps aggregating 32 feet 3 inches,
which is only three inches behind his
coast record set last Friday night.
COAST RECORDS BROKEN
The sprint event was a close race,
the whole field being bunched at the
finish. Haskamp of Santa Clara was
the first to catch the judges' eye, with
.lack Nelson second and Gates third.
Inches only separated the men. Sev
eral false starts were made before the
men were sent on their journey.
The 500 yard event, which was won
by Hoenisch, was cut In 63 seconds,
establishing a new coast record. This
is particularly fast time for the track
on which it was run. The time of 7
minutes 58 2-5 seconds for the 3,000
yards also establishes a coast record
for the distance.

ONE LESSON FROM KOLEHMAINEN
Marvelous Finnish Runner and His Diet
NEW YORK. Feb. 21.—Hannes Koleh
malnen, the Flying Finn. Hks shown us
something new about running. He has
broken our own and the world's records
at several different distances.
Other champions, in breaking world's
records, have dropped as they reached
the tape, or have staggered Into the
arms of their friends, exhausted by the
fury of their exertions.
With the Finn it Is different. He runs
his races with a smile on his face, as if
lie enjoyed the pace. He holds his
arms almost still, running with legs
and body alone. When the times comes
to quicken the pace he does it without
showing the increased effort. Perhaps
he can go still faster without feeling
the strain. He finishes his races at full
speed and jogs laughingly back to the
dressing room as fresh as at the start,
WHERE DOES HE GET ITT
Where does the great Finn get that
marvelous endurance?
Unless my theory Is wrong, It Is the
natural result of a life of Spartan sim
plicity.
At home in Finland. Kolehmalnen
had no luxuries.
lie worked hard.
His food was the kind of food that is
eaten because It satisfies hunger and
supports life. He dtdn t have things
to eat that were eaten because they
tickled the palate. He didn't know
there was such a thing. Kolehraainen,
visiting a New York restaurant when
he first came to this country, wouldn't
have known even the names of one dish
in twenty.
That was a very good thing for
Kolehmainens health.
DUNCANS EVES BULGE
Jim Duncan, discus thrower, visited
Finland after the Olympic games. When
I met him he was still goggle eyed with
amazement over his experiences.
"Why," said Duncan, "I met all the
big Finnish athletes and saw how they
lived. It's no wonder those fellows are
strong. They never saw a piece of pie
or cake in their lives. There Isn't any
cafe life or anything like that in the
towns. There are just a few restau
rants, because all the people eat at
home. When you go into a restaurant
you pay the cashier about 25 cents
when you enter the door. Then you
go and help yourself to whatever you
want to eat. There is a table in the
middle of the room, with different
kinds of fish piled up on it Most of the
flsh Is dried or smoked. There is a
kind of coarse black bread and some
cheese. I went to a restaurant with
Taipale, the champion discus thrower.
He ate six whole flsh, one after an
other, washing them down with water

and development of the west shore bay
district of the city near China basin.
Mayor Rolph sent a letter to the board
of works yesterday asking for recom
mendations for opening up Fifth ave
nue, South, and one or more adjacent
streets. "This section of San Fran
cisco has been too long neglected and
some plans must be devised to compel
the property owners in that vicinity
to open up that country for travel and (
development," said the mayor.

ROBERT EDGREN
and finishing with some bread and
cheese. That was a luxurious feast to
him. He had the appetite of a wolf.
If I'd eaten what he ate it would have
knocked my stomach out for a week.
I visited him at his farm. They ate
fish and bread and cheese—nothing
else. Every man works hard and eats
a lot. and nobody has Indigestion.
They're all as hard as Iron. Nobody
thinks of riding anywhere. If a man
wants to go five or ten miles through
the country he walks. No wonder
they're all athletes." I
FOOD VERSUS— t :!••••!
That's just the difference between
the upbringing of Kolehmainen. the
Finn, and of our American athletes.
Here we live In comparative luxury,
whether rich or poor. We eat a great
variety of things, including sawdust
breakfast foods, imitation sugar made
out of all sorts of odds and ends, honey
and maple sugar composed of glucose
and saccharine, cold storage meats that
are half decayed before they are
cooked, and other things well calcu
lated to destroy any stomach. If we go
into a "first class restaurant" we are
given (for a price) a number of dishes
the original odors and flavors of which
are carefully disguised by various
sauces and extracts. Some of these
odors have to be disguised! Why, if one
of the ancient Greek athletes (under
oath to the priests of the gods to en
dure strict training for one year before
competing in the Olympic games) had
been detected in the act of eating any
one of the score of things dumped
daily into the helpless American stom
ach he'd have been banished from
Greece.
COUNTRY BOY MAY ARISE
Wβ develop the fastest sprinters, the
best jumpers, the utrongeet weight
throwers (although In this the Finns
press us hard) here In America. But
I doubt that we'll develop any distance
runners like Kolehmainen in our cities.
Somewhere in the country, where
Americans live and eat rationally, in
stead of existing on French chef cold
K'orago stuff that a self-respecting
hyena would run from, we may do It.
The Finns, who live without luxury,
arc going to upset a lot of expecta
tions at the next Olympic games. They
come from a small country, and they
are few In number, but they are going
to score heavily enough in the run
ning, jumping, weight throwing and all
around contests to make them rank
close to the big teams at the top.
If we arc to win at Berlin as de
cisively as at Athens and London and
Stockholm we'll have to adopt the
simple life. Hannes Kolehmainen has
ehown us the way.
CHRIS VON DER AHE
A REGULAR COMEDIAN
Old Time St. Louis Boss
Puts One Over on the
Board of Directors
Chris yon der Ahe, who Iβ ill at his
home in St. Louis, was one of the most
eccentric characters in baseball dur
ing the height of his career. He was
the Weber and Fields of the national
game for years, and Jnnumerable
stories are told of his early years and
the odd rulings and tactics he used
when he controlled the St. Louis club.
Claud Martin was at one time a mem
ber of Chris's board of directors. Mar
tin and some other men on the board
thought that they were there to do
something. Chris brought up the fin
ing of a player. Dowd, a friend of Mar
tin's, and put it to a vote. There were
four votes upholding Dowd and one,
yon der Ahe's, for fining him.
"Der ayes haf id," declared yon der
Ahf, who was In the chair. "Dowt Is
fined $250. It is ordered, Mr. Secre
tary."
"Hold on, Mr. President," inteuposed
Martin, "let us see about this. There
were four votes 'no' and but one vote
'aye.' I submit that the 'noes' have It
and demand a rising vote."
"Ordter, ordter," cried Chris, who
was presiding. "You are oudt of ordter

ISLAND POLOISTS
WORRY PENINSULA
"What Ho? ,, Sing Hills
borough Players When
They Read Papers
JOHN D. BROOMFIELD
(Special Dispatch to the Call)
HILLSBOROUGH, Feb. 21.—The de
cisive defeat of the Pasadena polo team
at the hands of the Hawaiian Invaders
in the southern city Wednesday was a '
revelation to local followers of the J
sport, and the Hillsborough fans are
beginning to wonder what will happen
when the islanders meet the Slashers
here next month.
Tt is true the fans figure that Reggie
Weiss, the best player In the Pasa
dena Polo club, dfd not appear In!
Wednesday's match n<3 his place was
taken by Dr. W. A. Boucher. Inas
much as Reggie Weiss can play rings
around any other Pasadenan, the team
was materially weakened by his ab
sence.
But, on the other hand, when- Wal
ter Dillingham, captarlri of- the Ha
waiian team, heard that it supposedly
was Pasadena's second team which his
team was pitted against, he decided to
stay out of the match, and his place
was taken by Sam Baldwin, the Hono
lulu substitute.
CASTLE RESPONSIBLE
The one sided result of the match,
12 V. to 3*4, was due greatly to the
brilliant playing of Marold Castle, who
played the No. 2 position for the Ha
waiians. The southern fans, after see
ing the islanders in action, said the
Hawailans would be licensed in going
after such big game as tfi* Meadow
brook team, If every one of them could
play with the dash and skill of Castle.
While the fans are busy speculating
the chances of the challenging Ha
walians when they match forces with
the Hillaborough Polo
Manager Hastings is getting his junior
team in trim for the Coronado tourna
ment. Hastings and his three team
mates will leave for the south two
weeks from tomorrow.
There will be a cutin game at Cross
ways field tomorrow afternoon, and
Will Tevis is trying to arrange a two
chukkur game without baddies. Not
many of the players are anxious to
risk their necks by riding bareback in
a polo game, so the plan is apt to fall
through.
JUNIORS VS. VETERATVS
At EI Cerrlto field .Sunday afternoon
the junior team will meet the Vet
erans. The lineups wil] be as follow?:
Junior*—No. 1, Elking; No. 3, Terls; No. G,
Hayno: back. Hastings.
Veterans —No. I, Verdi w; No. 2, Driscoll ; No.
3, Devereui; back. Garritt.
The veterans will give the juniors
nine goals as a handicap, but if Dev
ereux should not be able to play and
McAllister is put in his place, the
handicap will be only five goal*.
Hastings said today that the juniors
would enter the Pacific coast junior
championship at Coronado for tetme
under 12 goals and also the handicap
tournament for all teams.
The polo pony race between Verdler
on Bronco and Hastings on PJt-a-Pat,
which was scheduled for Sunday,' hae
been postponed because the players
are not willing to overwork their
ponies. Races in the morning would
make the mounts too tired for polo In
the afternoon, they claim. When the
race is held Elkins has challenged the
winner to meet his pony. Sprocket, in
a quarter mile race.
A week from Sunday Alexander will
ride Carolan's Kitty, against Elkins on
his winning pony. Meal Ticket.
