At the start of the race the Rubber

there is a real light on for glory in the
Faetory league a visit to uny one of

of the fact. At any game it is com

men and women, with megaphone?,
shouting encouragement to their own
players and using every effort to
stampede the opposition, in their ef
forts to stem the tido of the battle in
their favor. It is genuine enthusiasm
and begins with the umpire's call of
"play ball" until the last man has been
Play Clean Kail. .
Considerable credit must be accord
ed the players for the clean and
sportsmanlike manner in which fhey
conduct themselves during the heat of
battle. Being driven nearly frantic by
the untiring efforts of the rooters one
might expect some players to turn a
trick and take undue advantage of
their opponents?. Hut the best of
feeling apparently prevails at all times
between the players, adhering strictly
to the code of honor and playing rules
obeying the rulings of the otiicials in
charge of the contests and following
the instructions and mandates of the
league rules and their efficers.

Kalamazoo, Mich., June 2 5. South
Bend took a decided brace Thursday
over the playing of the day before and
won from the. Kazooz without any
trouble. Grodick was the only man
on the Hoosier club who failed to get
at least one hit, Stevenson having
pounded three hits off Jacobson. The
score was 8 to C.
Two big innings with the bat and
two bad innings for Jacobson and his
playmates won the game for the Bend
ers. In the fifth, the Hoosiers pushed
in three runs and in the last they
scored five times before they were
stopped. The fifth inning scoring was
nearly the cause of a riot, when the
Kalamazoo players objected to Umpire
Up to the seventh round the Kazooz
never had a chance to score. Duffy
was going along at great speed and in
the first six frames, he allowed the
Celery Pickers only four hits. In the
last three periods his opponents were
treated to six hits and a run in each
of the last three sessions.
Before the ninth round started, the
game had been a fair exhibition of
baseball. In that last period the
Hoosiers got to Jacobson and hammer
ed five hits out of him. Along with
this gang of hits came a walk and
the game was all sewed up.
Friday afternoon the Benders and
Kazoos meet in a double bill. Louder
milk is slated to hurl the first game
of the afternoon with Schorr in line
to work the second contest.

BY Fit AN Iv I. MEXKE.
POUGUKEEPS1E, N. Y., June 20.
The old shell and oca game w;s a
cinch to dope out in comparison with
the great problem that confronted
about 7 5,000 visitors today as to which
crew of the six entered would be fir.t
to pit the finish line in the four mile
varsity race that was the closing fea
ture of the afternoon's intercollegiate
regatta on the Hudson.
In other years, it required no figur
ing at all. Everyone upon arrival im
mediately was assured that Cornell
would sweep the river and that the
best and quickest way of adding to the
bank rool was to offer odds on Cornell
against the field. But the situation
was vastly different today.
The weather favored no one crew.
Had the Hudson been choppy it would
have been conceded that Cornell's
chances were enhanced, as the Ithaca
boys can shoot a shell almost as well
in rough water as in smooth. A hot
sun shone over head and only a light
breeze stirred in the morning, giving
indications of dying away by sunset
when the big race was to be rowed.
There was quite a lot of talk la.ct
night and today to the effect that Cor
nell folks and some professional
gamblers were offering even money on
Cornrll against the jiHd, but it was j ist
