THE BRATTLEBORO DAILY REFORMER; TUESDAY,- JUNE 14, 1921. SPORTING NEWS Game of Polo Dates Back Several Centuries Tradition Sets its Origin About 600 A. D. Inter national Matches. NEW YORK, June 14. Although the international polo mntilies between the I'nited States awl English teams, whioli nro reMiune.l in England thi week, le gaii in ISMS, the game of polo was playeil before Columbus discovered America. The game was introduced in the United States in 176 but the sport is centuries old. It originated in Persia, and was played in China and India long before cavalry officer,"'" garrisoned in India, brought the sport to England awl made it the "sport of kings". Largely because of the excellent trani ing in horsemanship which polo affords, it has been fostered by government and army officials. At the close of the re cent war. Sir Douglas Ilaig conferred up on the sport a citation", declaring it to be the most efficient training for army officer vet tlevised. During and since the war." the game has been encouraged among American army officers. e ceording to tradition, polo had its origin in the court ofa Persian kiug. It is said to have been invented by a court i,hvician for the purpose of providing physical exercise for his sovereign and members of the retinue. About (KH A. !., v-hadowv legends have it that the lar tar who overran Asia at that period, carried the game to China. From Chinese archives, it appears that as early as 1M1 D there was a school for the train In" of polo ponies. It was shortly after this period that the wanderings of the Viatic peoples took the game to India, whence it has come down to Et.gland and America. i When James Gordon Bennett brought mallets. Jerseys and balls to this country in 187(1, he and several associates gave the game its tirst tryout at Dickels' Hid ing Academy, then located a$ 3!Hh street and 1'iftli avenue. New YorJ?. Soon, the players formed the Westchester Polo Hub, with grounds at Fordham. When the. fashionable New York set moved to Newport. II. I., in the summer of 1X77, the Westchester Polo club moved there also. 4 The game immediately gained popu larity. The P.righton Polo club was or ganized at Ixmg Branch, another fash ionable summer place. The late H. L. Her bert, until his death a few months ago. the president of the Polo association of America, was one of the founders of this organization.

"Fully two-thirds of the whole Indian population is yet without gospel privi leges whatever, either Protestant or Cath olic. The Methodist centenary program plans large enterprises among tlie red men." The following letter from Commissioner of Indian Affairs Charles II. Burke to the Bev. Iligley was read at the conference: "The progress that has been made in the civilization of the Indians and their present development would have been im possible if it had not been for the mission aries that weue the pioneers in laying the foundation for the religious ami educa tional welfare of these people, and it is my hope that we may have the assistance and co-operation of all missionary socie ties in our endeavor to hasten the time when all of the Indians in the country may become respectable, self-supporting, Christian citizens." A second .conference of Indians will be held at Salem," Ore., on June 117. BRATTLEBORO PERSONAL I Miss Aurelia Churilln of Highland Park.
