APPLICATION MADE TO A. A. U,
FOR PERMISSION TO HOLD
Pittsburg, Dec. 24. The Pittsburg
Athletic Club baa applied to the Ama
teur Athletic Union for permission to
hold the entire net of indoor national
rwimming championships of 111 1 nnd
f-o stirred up once more the much de
bated question of whether it is advis
able to bunch all the events into one
blp meet or to piece them out one at
a time among the various clubs asking
Otto Wahle, chairman of the swim
ming committee of the A. A. IT., is at
the head of the faction which main
tains that the Individual alone should
be considered when it comes to giving
events evolving national titles. This
faction claims that a championship
should go to the best man and that in
forcing the topnotchers to compete In
several events on the same day a de
cided injustice is done them, for they
cannot prepare properly, or even be
in the best condition, for more than
one race, so that a second rater at
times wins out, which is undeniable,
Still, the other side points out with
eiial reason, that splitting the events
gives no chance to developing material,
thus offering no incentive, and that the
Kystern awakens no interest in the
public, while an important, well adver
tised tournament brings out a large
crowd and so serves to popularize
aiuatlcs. It nil resolves itself into
whether the interest of the Individual
or the good of the sport in general
should come first, nnd opinions vary
greatly on the subject.
The Pittsburg A. C. pool is particu
larly well fitted for a championship
carnival. The natatorlum has excel
lent facilities for accomodating specta
tors and the pool is one of the best in
the world for competivc purposes. It
measures 90 feet in length by 35 feet
in width, tho water Is kept as clear as
crystal, and lines of green tiles along
the bottom serve to give swimmers and
plungers their course without having
to look up.

Rugby in the California Institutions
the westerners have been trying t
spread the alien game to other parts
of the country. The cries of "abolish
football" have risen louder In Rugby
pectlons than anywhere else, l'resi
dent Ide Wheeler of the University
of California says that the introduction
of Rugby football into American
schools Is a moral issue. He is quoted
on the subject as follows:
"The superiority of the Rugby game
for high schools and colleges is so np
parent, so certainly established, that
the issue" now presented as between
this and the old intercollegiate game
lias taken the form of a moral Issue.
The old intercollegiate game, deserved
to be driven out of all American Insti
tutions. No one who is well versed In
the two games can say anything else.
Tho perpetuation of the old game can
only be regarded as ethically wrong.
All the oft-repeated artificial efforts
to remodel it have proved ineffective.
The great nnd in fact the only remedy
Is the introduction of the Rugby game.
It can readily be seen that the public
appreciates all these points," contin
ued Dr. Wheeler. This shown in the
increased attendance. The crowd
which watched California and Stan
ford play was the greatest in the his
tory of California football. This inter
est is bound to Increase from year to
year as the public becomes more fa
miliar with the Rugby game."

lOYERALL AND BROWN HAY
QUIT THE CHICAGO CUBS
Chicago, III, Dec. 24. Cub fans are
anxiously awaiting confirmation or
denial of reports from the I'acillc coast j
that the two Cub stars, Overall "nd
Jrown, are going to desert baseball
end engage in business in the Califor
nia oil fields. The dispatches state that
little tljers In oil have proved so suc
cessful that Murphy's twlrlers are ko-
Ing to frame a partnership agreement
and lay the Cub uniform In moth balls
for all time.
Overall, a native of California, al
ready owns an orange ranch there, and
Kniwn Is said to have Interests in the
ist which ho will dispose of In order
to float bis proposition on the coast.
Although Drown is under contract
o play with ('banco In 1911. the miner
believes he can build the foundation
of a fortune quicker and more securely
In other fields. Overall's decision is
redited to the report that he would be
traded to tho llrates for Cumnltz.
SEYEN IS STRONG
After tho bitterest fight in the his
lory of professional hookey in Eust

tinnounccd the lineup of the team for
this season as follows: Goal I.esueur;
point, Ronan; cover-point. Shore; rov
er, Ridpath; center, Walsh; right wing.
Gaul; left wing, Kerr.
It is announced also that the club
has yet to sign two additional men,
and it is taken for granted that these
are Stuart nnd Lake, whose return
would make the tenim exactly the same
as last season, unless Ronan or Gaul,
who are with Hall Vbury, beat out
Ridpath or Shore for places. The re
turn of Walsh came as a big surprise,
and it is known that offers have been
made to Lake and Stuart, the latter of
whom may coach a team. Pete Croon
was appointed manager. The highest
paid man on the team will get $700.
the dub thus keeping well within the
Ronfrew'Js team is annourited ns
follows: Goal. Lindsay, point. Patrick
or McNamara; cover, Talor. for
wards, Rowe, Cleghorn, Drawer and
Jordan. It is Impossible under the sal
ary limit to import all hlghclass stars
but the club has strong hopes of bring
ing Frank Patrick back from Nelson.
