I; men arc In coulitlm. Neither will lii'V the advantage of being ac-(U.-l"inel to lighting tibovc sea level, - ti'tther Jeffries nnr Johnson his rvcr fought uway from a low altitude. All of their battles have been either on th seaooasts or in cities of tho plains. Ami Silt Luke City Isn't extremely liifli. It Is only 2.400 feet above rei ri I. The air Is dry and soincwh it th'nntr than in th seaboard citleu. I.nt not thin enough to affect scriouu ly (lio fighting ability of any man In first claj-s condition. Jrffrie. trained Corbet t at Carson City, tin- altitude of which Is .r..00() feet. At that time the champion could bo:f r run nil d.iy long without feeling the ( ri'i rt of the ' altitude very much. It . i fact, though, that In the fight bo-twe-n Fifslmmona nnd. Corbett, Fitx slicni' ns had an advantage because of his ;rat luns capacity. At Carso:i ;t was hard work for any man to box (.- run lng distances. FiIii invr I hard work In Denver, wli i.' the altitude is .1,270 fort, but Jmiv.t has always fivorod 10-romil Ixiiits. Unite, Mont., Is at an ultitude nf r.. ST. feet, yet there have boon many IM'-at lights there. In Itutte .Stanley Ki ti la l and Montana Jac k Siilllv.t l, who Is now in Philadelphia looking f,,r a few heavyweights to fight, fought to a draw in 20 round. This shows tliat It In possible to fight a lon time In such an altitude. Only throe men have ever Flayed 20 rounds wLh Ketcli' 1. The ethers were Pupko and J.io Thomas, and they met lilm at sou lev!. Kittling Nelson fought 20 hurrloano rnumls with Ilerrera In Rutte, win ning the decision. Nelson has shown his ability to battle In high altitudes on more than one occasion. His 42 niund flsht with Joe (lans In Goldfield was lx-KT 5.001) feet above sea level. The hardest place to flsht In this cmintry Is at Cripple, Creek, at an al titude of 9.MH) feet. There the rare at mosphere makes It almost Impossible t u" through n long. buttle at.u. hard pure, no matter how well acclimated the fihters are. Hut the nltltude Is not the toughest thins in Cripple Creek. Tom Sharkey fought Mexican Pete E.erett there In 1901. Ho knock ed Everett out with a punch on the J:'v in the first round nnd was count ed loser on a "foul". . When Sharkey prob'sted, the referee covered him with a six-shooter and. remarked, "I said Toni:" "(Hi. very well." replied Sharkey. Any man in good condltlm and with strong lungs can fight on n mountain top. lint he must work nt the fame altitude while preparing for the fight. He must become accustomed to the thin .nlr gradually. A fighter golnrr from 'low' to high altitudes without proper preparation takes deFperat chances. WILL PLAY CHICAGO. Gophers Will Meet Chicaoo n Mar shall Field Gridiron on Oct. 29. As a result of the diplomacy of Dr. H. L. Williams, coach of the. foot hall team nt the University of Minne sota, It was announced on Monday hy one high In authority In varsity athletic circles that Minnesota and Chicago will play their annual frame ff football at Marshall field, on Oct. 29. The date hns not been formally ratified by the athletic authorities of the universities, but has been Agreed upon In a tentative manner. Chicago will not ask Minnesota to cancel the Michigan game and has made It plain, since Dr. "Williams' vls It. that thero will be no feeling against the Gophers on account of their play ing the Michigan team or maintaining the gamp on tho schedule.

Btheatre complete CHANGE OF PROGRAM TODAY FRf AK PIAYS OFTEN WIN G 111 AT BASEBALL GAMES Unexpected Stunts Sometimes Take Enemy by Surprise in Baseball. PLAYERS WITH BRAINS COUNT Doing the unexpected wins In base ball. That has been proven, ltut with this conclusive evidence before them, baseball managers und ball players persist In using the stereotyped and time-worn methods of offense and de fense on the diamond. They seem simply unable to grasp the value of the new play. Such masters us Frank Chance, John J. McGraw und Hughlo Jennings, men who have been successful because they used their brains und outwitted the other fellows, have landed pen nants. Others have seen them go to the top; they have seen them finish In front, but they have been unable to urasp tho meaning of their buo- COfiS. Tho trouble with most ball teams is that they do not see through the work- of the other fellows. They do not tumble to the fact that certain plays are designed for one purpose ulone, and are not accidental. Orioles . An Example. The Ilaltlmore Orioles started In side ball playing. It was this team that made n practice of using Inside plays, nnd It landed them champion ships. Furthermore, the men who were members of the Orioles In thoso days have been able to teach others the same tricks with the same kind of success. It Is claimed that John J. McGraw discovered the hit-and-run play. That was while McOraw was a member of the four-time Ilaltlmore team. John .1. was on first in one particular game and Willie Keelcr was at bat. McOraw started to steal second as the pitcher delivered tho ball. The second base man ran over to cover second, and as he did so Keeler pulled the ball through the opening the Infielder left. The sharp wits of McOraw and Keeler Immediately saw the advan tage of the accidental play. They talked It over after the game and then followed the most wonderful series of team batting plays nnd In side work the game had ever seen. This team batting or the hit and run play was fo deftly performed that no other manager or captain succeeded in discovering what the Orioles were working. They could not see that the F.altl moro team was working with n studied system of team batting and team play. Johnny Ward and Patsy Tebeau were running teams In the National league nt that time. The Orioles were part of the National, but neither Ward nor Tebeau discovered what was being put over them. How many teams successfully work the hit and run and other Inside plays In these days? The game becomes tiresome at times. The one team al ways knows what the other is about to pull off and can never get away from It. With Man On First. With a man on first the team nt bat will, nine times out of ten, try to sacrifice, providing there Is not more than one out The lnfielders play in nnd the man sacrifices. Everybody looks for that nnd It is Just what happens. The Olants last summer under Mc Oraw's direction, started something different. With, a man on base and none out, the lnfielders wero drawn In by the batter. Then he would hit the ball with all his hatting Btrength. The plan was tried five times In two games. Three times the ball was a grounder which, If the fielders had been playing back would have resulted In an out but playing as they did, two errors resulted and the ball got by tho other time. One trial re sulted In a fly and the other In a clean hit. The next day under the same con ditions, instead of playing Infield tho opposing lnfielders held their regular positions. The result was that the man at bat sacrificed. Everybody looked for a hard smnsh nnd before the opposing team could recover and reach the hall, the -Giant batter had reached first safely. It was tho un expected that won. IS BOOSTING RUGBY. Dr. David Starr Jordan, president of the Iceland Stanford University, California, lias broken loose again, this time with a letter to all the leading college presidents of the coun try, In which he praises rugby foot ball as played In his Institution nnd pans the American college game that the majority of other learning plants seem to prefer. Dr. Jordan It will be remember Is the educator who, not long ago, got Into print with a series of charges against Coach Yost and tho University of Michigan In general for employing alleged questionable tactics In luring football men from tho wc.it to Ann Arbor. Incidentally, he failed to produce nny substantial proof for these charges nnd brought down upon him self the wrath of the Mnlze and Hhie undergraduates nnd alumni.

Men Prominent in Bowling Circles, Who Eo DAN. P. HAAGER Detroit. Mich., Feb. 10. Among tho hundreds of inni prominent in the bowling circle of the country, a few have bi en boosting the game with all their fiii.rgy and have made this year's meet an assured success. Judge Howard of Chicago Is lining up strong teams to represent the Windy City. John L. Larson of Hti llois City, Pa., Is one of tho strong Individual contestants. He is bring WOLVERINES WILL LOSE STAR FOOTBALL PLAYER Ann Arbor, Mich., Feb. 10. Just be cause two students and two policemen couldn't agree ns to how the close of tho first semester should be fittingly celebrated, Coach Yost will have one less valuable line-man to work with next Beason, and a probable candidate for the first eleven will be lost. Ar thur Cornwcll, ono of the parties to the affair of last Thursday night, has ben summoned to appear before the faculty of the literary department Monday at 4 p.m., nnd unless ho can give ii pretty good reason for being under tho Influence of liquor he will probably be asked to leave the uni versity. Cornwell made the All-Freshman team the past year at tackK , and played a great game throughout the seuson. p.ofore Douglas arrived to coach the freshmen Cornwell lined up ugalnst the 'Varsity every night and attracted the attention of Coach Yost. Douglas said that Cromwell was un doubtedly the best tackle in the state and ought to make good with the first eleven next Ecason.

Ted Coy for pitcher is the latest Yale baseball program. The football captain and head coach has Joined the diamond squad and has a ttpltball which Is Im pressive and deadly, according to the cracks who have seen him work out in practice. Ted was really disoovor c 1 by big IM Walah, twirler for the Chicago Americans, who coached the Yule pitihers last season. Coy quit the baseball squad for the track team before the season was well advanced last year, and as Van Vleck and Merritt turned out wonder fully well, be w.is not needed. Coy has promised to give his attention to baseball this spring, aside from start ing tho football candidates In their spring training. Fred Daly, the football captain. Is also a baseball candidate. He will try for right field again. Ted Lilley end Jack Held, gridiron stars, are nlso on the baseball squad. The battery candidates were called out two weeks ago for drill three afternoons a week on the gymnasium floor, and Llliey and Field are both out for the first base position. At present they are work ing with catchers, but they will be shifted to first base when outdoor practice begins. First bnse was left vacant by the graduation of "Pop" Jefferson. - ' The baseball problem at Yale this spring Is to develop two "good pitchers from the half dozen-who are eompar ntircly Inexperienced In intercolle giate competition. Next to Coy In promise Is Tommers. the brilliant freshnian pitcher of two seasons ngo. Much was rxpectod of him last sprlrig when ho was barred by faculty troubles. Hartwcll, Freeman nnd Prlnsniade, the latter the freshman pitcher last year, are all doing well. NO AGREEMENT REACHED. Salt, Lake City, Feb. 10.
