Can't Beat White.
CINCINNATI, Ohio, May 26.-—
"White has it on me. 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.

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.""-'

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."
