He can lick me every time I start against him. I'll not fight hire again," said Milburn Saylor, Indianapolis lightweight, to day following his quick knock-out at the hands of Charley White of Chi cago last night. White finished Say .lor in two minutes. "Widows -with life insurance money are the special prey of blue sky swindlers. A great many women, receive money at the de mise of their husbands without much more capacity to take care of It than might be expected of a ten-year-old child. "Women who are to receive money should be taught what to do with It otherwise, It is merely a matter of luck whether a man's life insurance—or fortune—4s a provision for his dependents or only a prize for the first swindler who comes along. Men who have considerable estate often put it in the hands of a responsible trust company for their dependents' benefit—a good example for anybody whose -wife is innocent of business experi ence and business sense.

When the Rowlanders thr&atened in the tenth, Walter Johnson re sponded nobly to a call for help by whiffing the first two men. The game was called on account of darkness.

Baumann was responsible for six of the Yanks' seven runs. He drove in four and scored two himself. The Browns out-hit the Yanks, but couldn't make 'em count.

Several Races and Hurdles Scheduled for This Afternoon—'Fortieth Meet of the Asso elation. EXPECT NEW RECORDS Athletes Competing Have Lowered Many Records and Half Dozen Are Expected to Fall Tomorrow. STADIUM, CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 26.—.The trial events of the meet of the intercollegiate amateur ath letio association of America were started today in bright sunshiny weather. The athletes have gather* ed from all the leading colleges in the country to compete. Trial heats in, the 100 yard dash, the 220, the high and low hurdles, the half mile and the quarter, will'be run off-this afternoon, while qualify ing rounds were held in the jumps, the pole vault and the weight events. The meet this year, the fortieth In the association's history, promises to surpass any gathering in the past. There have been years when greater individual stars came to the inter collegiates, but never such a wealth of material scattered throughout the different events. No lees than six of the athletes competing today have lowered world's figures, either in practice or competition, while ten are credited with being capable of lower ing present records. By today's trials, the field "ill be reduced to twelve men in the dashes, ten men in the. hurdles and ten in the quarter and half mile runs, respect ively. In each of the five field events only six men are left. Jack Moakley's Cornell team is a big favorite, for the Ithacans' super iority In the distance runs and the field events and the fact that fully thirty-five men will be entered, makes It hard to pick a team to beat them. The Pacific coast athletes are in the best of condition and are certain to cut largely into the scoring column. Captain Murray, of the Iceland Stan lord team, while expressing the be lief that Cornell will win, predicted his team would be up among the lead ers.""-' Central Association Clubs— Won. Lost. Pet.

AND THEN STOLE THIRD V, N-"7 Forfhfer'^Bail Player Worked as r- .^Though He Were Twenty-Three Instead of Fifty-. Thres. V- .1 v,v KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 25.—An old time baseball hero remounted the pedestal of fame Saturday afternoon, when Billy Sunday sent a smashing drive into right field, bringing in two runs and,starting a batting rally which won the Mercy hospital bene fit game for the Missouri side Rotar ians. The Kansas side club had to be satisfied with the short end of a 14 to 10 score. The setting was the one which has never been improved on for a dra matic climax in baseball—two down, the bases full and a pinch hitter at the bat. It may have been that Johnny Kling was a bit generous in his de cisions in filling the bases, but there was certainly no funnj business on Billy Sunday's i)art. He had been dancing around the players' pit, heffing the bats and let ting no play escape him: ".v. •t In as a Plneh Hitter. "You go in and bat for me, Billy," said George Siedhoff, captain of the Missouri side team. Sunday gave a pleased smile, grab ber up the bat he had selected pre viously, and started for the plate with quick strides. Then the bleachers erupted. In the unmistakable way that bleachers have always done it, they pleaded for a hit. Sunday flashed back a grin, step ped to the right side of the plate, hunched his trousers, pulled down his cap, spit on his hands and squared himself to meet the ball. The first one was wide of tbe pi te. "Ball one," rasped the umpire. As the next ball left the pitcher's hand, Sunday coiled and uncoiled quickly, there was a sharp crack, a dollar and a half's worth of horse hide, string and rubber 9iz zed straight and low past the second baseman, on past tbe right fielder who dived for it, and rolled towards the fence. Sunday meantime was giving an exribitlon of the base running that once made him famous. Down to first he sprinted with the spring and speed of 23, rather than 53. He made it safely to second while two runs came in and tied the score. Tbe sawdust trail never saw the excitement of that moment. Hats and banners went aloft. The printed copies of the prepared yells were thrown up to meet them, for the noise was of the spontaneous variety that needs no leader. Then He Stole Third. Dancing off second base as he did when a member of Pop Anson's White Sox more than twenty years ago, Billy watched for his chance and shot down to third. It was a beautiful steal and his speed made I it necessary for him to slide to make it. Almost the entire Sunday party was at the gamr. Bob Matthews, secretary to Sunday, wrecked tbe plans of the Pathe Weekly to film the ball player-evangelist. A motion picture camera was set up when Sun-! day arrived, but it was immediately ordered away. "Mr. Sunday has repeatedly re fused thousands of dollars to pose for the movies," Matthews explained "He does not believe in commercial izing himself. He says his mission is merely to preach the gospel." CLUB STANDINGS NATIONAL LEAGUE. Clubs— Won. Lost.
