VOLUME LX., NO _48 WHEELING, W. V A., SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 1912. .PRICE TWO CENTS NEW WORLD'S RECORDS EXPECTED IN OLYMPIC - -1 EVERY NATION STRIVING TO I CARRY OFF HONORS. America Will Be Represented by the| Greatest Athlete* That Ever Competed. I . ___________ It ta 'the opinion of many experts that several records will fall before the mighty athletes who will com pete In the Olympic tryouts to be held In Cambridge. Mass.. Jure 8. While it Is Improbable that a score of old marks will be swept from the hooks, 1t Is considered certain that with a warm day, fast track and good field at least eight new records will be established. So that there will be American claaslrs as well as Olympic, the American committee will arrange the distances according to the English system of feet and yards as well as the metric system. In each contest wheer a contestant promises to perform In record form, the track will be paid out In varda as well as meter marks, and in the field events they will be measured with the English and metric meas ures. In this way the middle 'distance runners In the R00 meter event con tinue to the hslf mile mark: those In the 1,500 meter event to the one-mile mgrk. and the 200 meter sprinters to the 520 mark. Of those who may hang up new rec ords, A. L. Gutterson of the Univer sity of Vermont stands out as the best. Barring an accident, he will undoubtedly add several Inches to the running broad jump. As a jumper he Is considered in a class by him self. He Is a powerfully built fellow and possesses a great burst of speed, which will help him in his run to the take-off. He is as agile as a gat. and has a spring that differs materially from those of other jumpers As he leaves the take-off he skims through the air only a couple of feet above the gfound. Jones May Lowes Mile Mark. John Paul Jones, the Cornell cham pion. who now holds the one mile world's record of 4 minutes 15 2-5 seconds, will probably cut several seconds from this mark. He is train ing hard for the intercollegiate cham pionships and the tryouts, and in his work has shown better form than "hen ho hung up his record last year. He fs more seasoned now, knows more about tho intricate points of the game, and is a hotter judge of pare. He and every one who has seen him in competition believe he will come near traveling the mile in 4 minutes jn seconds. The two veteran campaigners of Now York City, Melvin Sheppard and Harry Gissing. are confident they will hang up new marks. So are a host of expert*. But the strange part of it is they will both try for the same record. They will compete |n the RO0 meter race and continue to the half mile mark. They will start In differ ent heats. Bpusred on by the belief that Pat McDonald and Lawrence will soon pans hla records. Ralph Haiti of the ^ Olympic A. C. of California la work-' In* as he never has before to add aeveral Inches to his shot put records. In recent trials he has of teen beaten • his records, and he believes he will hang up new figures In the western tryouts. Ralph Craig, the sprinter of the Ual verslty of Michigan, is expected to make new records in the 220 yyrd dash. He has equaled the old mark of 21 1-6. and those who know his speed and have seen him In recent trials say he will run the distance In 21 seconds on a fast tract. Bonhag Expects to Create Record. fleorge Bonhag, the veteran dis tance runner of the Irish-American I A. C., says he will hang up a new j record In the five mile run. Seldom has the great runner made a false prediction. He knows what he can and cannot do. but besides his word there are several experts who have seen him work who think he will beat his old mark in the tryouts. Martin Sheridan will try for two records. Both will be with the dis cuss. One seems easy for him. and experts say he will add both to his credit easily. To throw the discus be vend his record figures of 142 feet 10>4 inches may prove hard, but hurl ing It to a new mark, using both hands, seems to place a new record ] at his mercy. While the eight named above stand | out as having the best chance for hanging up new figures, experts be lieve others will do the trick. Some of the likely record breaker^ are Pat McDonald and Lawrence Beatty with the shot; Walter Dray, [-eland Scott,! H S. Babcock and W. Waggoner, of 1 Yale. In the pole vault, and B I Horine of Stanford university, in the running high Jump.

June 7—The fact that the New York Giants at present are making a sort of runaway race of it in the National league does not mean that the pennant is already fly ing over the Polo grounds. On the contrary, there is a good prospect of any one of several teams overtaking the Giants before they have gone the full distance. The fact must not be forgotten that McGraw's men have been playing in extraordinary luck this season, so far as having the team crippled None of the regulars who are at all Important 10 the success of the aggregation have been absent for any length of time, so that the Giants have been playing practically with an Intact team, m hlle the other nines who are considered contenders for the pennant—the Heds, Cubs. Pirates and Phillies—have suffered more or lees through accident to some of their stars, and so have been handicapped in their flht for honors. It Is rea sonable to suppose that some sort of misfortune will overtake the Giants before the season is much farther advanced; and when this does happen the other teams will get Into as close proximity to the New Yorkers as they deserve to he That there is intense interest all over the country in the success of the Reds is shown hv the large numbers of letters received by President Herr tnann from all corner* of the United State*, advising him where he can se cure pitcher* who will pat that de- I part ment of the team on the same basis of strength as the rest of the gg gregatlon. Several new men have al ready been secured. Including Fletch er. the star pitcher of the defunct United State* league Fletcher and one other twlrler probably will be given try-outs on the present eastern trip and if they make good they will be exhibited in the next series of home games of the Red*. With Benton and Sugga again going welt. It is reason able to expect better results from the pitching department. What can the Reds do with the At lantic coast division away from home? The fact that Bates has been out of the gsme. and that Mitchell ha* been playing under a tremendous handicap must be taken Into consideration in sizing up results. One particularly Joy ous feature of the team's present road lour has been the consistent and Im proved work of Marsans In the out. field. The Cuban has been perform ing like a house afire on fhe field, at bat and on the bases, and surely is the outfield find of the season He will be given a tremendous reception ( when the team returns home for Its next Sunday game, on June 23, when they will have the St. Louis team for their opponents. VARSITY BALL TEAM MAKE POOR SHOWING TRACK TEAM FINISHED POOR THIRD AT BUCKHANNON. Sports at tha Varsity Thig Year Have Been Anything but Satiefactory to the Students. (By Carl p. Leatherwood.) Special Dispatch to the Intelligencer. MORGANTOWN. W. Va June 7.— West Virginias baseball schedule is rapidly nearing a close and June 17 will see the final game which will be played between the varsity and the alumni. As a whole the season just closing has been a fairly successful one. although it might have been bet ter The team has succeeded in win ning a majority of the games but the most important ones on the sched ule which were played on the road were I oat. The greatest trouble this season seemed to lie In 'th» pitching staff, although bad fielding at times, coupled with poor throwing, helped to lose several of the games The pitch ers have been going better since the series with Washington and Jefferson and no trouble will be experienced with the teams which ihe varsity will play between now and the close <>f the season. The boys are still work ing out as faithfully ns ever and Coach Gronninger is laying more stress on hitting practice now than anything else a few days ago Jimmie remark ed 10 the writer "I don't give n < us* If a team field* poorly.

June 5.—To the throne of the lefthanders, that most curious race of all the curious races that dwell within the borders of baseball has come s new kong— King Rube—the second, third or fourth, aa the caae may be: anyway. » Rube, and anyway a king of left hand land. The alabaster bean of Richard de Marquis, alias Rube Mar quard. tilts Itself above the level of the rabble to receive the metamor phlcal crown. There has been no regular king of left-handers since the passing of King Rube Waddell, as we under stand the matter. He went and left a throbbing vacrum Supporters of Nap Rucker and Doc White and Ed die Plank and other candidates tried to capture enough delegates to elect their favorite to the Job. but a tie. or something, resulting In the con vention and there was no choice. Things were at this pass when along came Richard de Marquis, alias Rube Marquard, and copped the crown, so to speak. The king wai dead; very good—very lay wahl Which French will be understood by King Rube, as he U of the purest Ohio French himself. On bis labors of last season, and what he has accomplished this year, the long. lean, wry-necked Ohio Frenchman Ts hailed as the great* est aide wheeler of the time, and a worthy successor to King Waddell— although be It understod right now that the resemblance between the two begins, and enda. with left-hand ed ability. There are no near con tenders for the throne so far this year The sensational Vean Gregg of Cleveland, does not yet class with Gotham's Rube In the Judgment of baseball players. Marquard stands alone. The glory of Rube'a last year rec ord was dimmed to some extent by the fact that he could do nothing In the world's series. He appeared In forty-five games—a lot of work for a fellow of hla physical construction. Rube is tall and muacular. but ha la not a powerful man.
