TURFHflS PDDR JOCKEYS? ins rarai the horses Many So-Called Jockeys Lack Sufficient Knowledge to Make Efficient Exercise Boys; Longer Races Will Make Better Riders, For the Trainers Will All Be Obliged to Insist on Higher Class Work. BALTIMORE, Md., April 2. The Maryland mtton thus far has demonstrated that the American turf la Indeed In a. bad way when it comes to jockeys. Boys have been rid ing here that are not competent to gallop horses, much less ride races, and in this connection longer races will make better riders. It will not make lockeyi by Riving the Incompetents mounts In these races, but it will bring bsck the exercise boys from whom the jockeys Rre recruited. A horse cannot be trained on a halter shank to race a mile and a quarter, as they so frequently are for sprints. Three-furlong breexes will not carry a, horse over that distance, and the train ers will begin to educate jockeys dur ing the galloping hours in the old fashlonrd way. Almost any trainer can fit a horse to race five and a half or six furlongs, but it Is a test of the man as well as the torse when the route Is stretched out to a mile and a quarter. Almost any jockey who learns alertness at the post becomes a star rider when he only per forms In sprint races but It requires a degree of horsemanship and a knowl edge of pace to pilot a horse ten fur lungs. Feiv Good Three-Yenr-Old. So f i w good three-year-olds were raced at Bowie that practically no line 1s had'on the prospects In that age di vision. They were at best good selling platerc, and it will be some time before j National League Snortstops Are Best -:.:- -- -::- -ft- -;l:-Wkile Americans Excel In Outfielders Ily FRANK tEW YORK. April . John K. (VI Tener advances the opinion that IN the National league shortstops arc in a class by themselves Individually or collectively the National leaguers are far beyond any thing In the American." said the old league executive. "But that isn't any thing really new. The National al ways have been superior to the Amer ican in the shortstopping end of the gam i. ' The American league hasn't a man in Bancroft's' class as a fielder He appeals to me as one of the very great est shortstops that the game has pro duced.

Elmer Pearson and Ferdie Welsh were on the points for the Feld mans and John O'Keefe, jr., and Pat ' 'wyer tor tne Sluggers. & & Here's a letter from Oakley Lucas, marager of the Douglas Red Sox, ahlch is self explanatory: "I would like very much to hear from the Orchard Park baseball team in regard to the arrangement of games Tor some tune next month. 1 have i ead several articles in your paper stating that they were willing to fur nish our team J SO, room and board while in your 'city but I have heard nothing from them about the matter.

During the Bowie meeting there were eighty-four races decided, and of this number thirty-nine were at dis tances tit a mile or more.

At Havre de Grace the percentage of races at other than a sprinting dis tance is small, but programs will be changed, for Secretary Rehberger has announced that when he finds it neces sary to put on an extra race he will make it ever a longer route than that provided In the book. One excellent excuse offered for the number of short races In the Havre de Grace book was that the sport was framed for New York horses. They are not here, and as a result Hehbergcr w Ml have to go to the McLennan idea to draw the horses that raced under that secretary. When Havre de (Irace Has opened four years ago the support came from the eastern and New ork hnses and the program that suited them at that time has been continued. It will not do this year, for the New York horses are not here, and If they v.ere would not be able to race suc cessfully over even the five-furlong distance. G. MBMvK. Regret to her absolute limit.

Should Regret romp home a winner in the Derby, it is likely that she will be retired at once to the stud, with the prestige of having won the two blue ribbon Kentucky events, if- Rupert Mills and Pat Powers are hating a grand little argument. Rupert is a youthful ball player who was signed up last fall to play for the Newark Federals. Since then the Feds went out of business. Mill's contract called for 13000 for 1916. After the doe of peace had settled upon the baseball world. Powers, act ine as Henry Sinclair's agent, tried to Settle with Mills. Tr nrrBp ftii J500 to tear up the contract, and agreed w bci Him a joo in one oi tne smaller minor leagues. Mills balked. He demanded at least 12100 And then Powers is reported to hate said that if Mills wouldn't be "reasonable" and insisted upon the ful fillment of his contract.

LAWT0N. of the Border States Tennis asso ciation, puts a new angle on the annual Border States meet, which opens at Tucson on May 10 and 11. In a letter to The Herald he states that "the primary object of these big tournaments is for business men of the southwest to get together, forget their business and meet in a social way and I believe they have had, in the past, a splendid effect in helping to unite the southwest." Mr. Law ton has the right idea and El Paso tennis enthusiasts will be in hearty accord with his sentiments. , ")NE new event on the Border States Tennis association's pro gram for the Tucson meet is a veterans' mixed doubles. Last year we had the veterans doubles. The junior tingles have also been added this year and this event is open to youths who have not yet reached their 18th year. COME good baseball should result from the clash between Puritys and Everybodys nezt Sunday in the Commercial league series at Rio Grande park. It will be the turn of Soldier Maresch to pitch for the bakers while Paul Fisher is due to work for the clerks. And if that doesn't look like a pitchers' battle well admit being bad guessers. J7VIDENTLY the Federal league of 1915 was quite as fast as either the National or American circuits. Former Federal pitchers seem to be winning a mighty fair share of their games in the two big leagues of or ganized ball this year. pLATJDE GRAHAM is having his troubles in professional baseball. He accepted terms with St. Joseph and then joined Los Angeles. The national organization awarded him to St Joseph and before he reported there he was suspended, the notice appearing in the current national bulletin. But the Saints needed a twirler and shoved Graham into Tuesday's game after Thomas had lost it Garham pitched fair ball, two runs scoring against him, but an error helped the Wichita team. With any kind of a real team behind him, Graham should be a winner in the Western league but the St. Joseph "team" hasn't qualified as a real team yet. iWrUK ffJHTOi kj y xassstftilL 1 lBif -,"' "' I-.-, I . n."

This was the second consecu tive victory for the El Paso boy. CAMMY BEER, a pet of the local fans last year, was another win ner Tuesday. Pruitt started against Los Angeles for Oakland, but was wild and was replaced by Beer, who he.d the all-star Angels safe while he was on the mound and Oakland won, 8 to 3. DYRD LYNN, another ex-Rio Grande star, caught the full American league game at Cleveland for the White Sox on Tuesday. He handled four pitchers without an error and while he failed to get a hit oS Coumbe, he starred with five assists. JACQUES FOURNIER surely had J his batting togs on Tuesday. While the White Sox got only six hits oS Coumbe, of the Indians, the first sacker got two singles and a double in four times up. YOU never can tell about the New York fights. Take the case of Levinsky and Dillon. When they met in Brooklyn, the New York scribes gave Levins.ky a clear verdict. But at Kansas City on Tuesday night, Dillon got a referee's decision over Levinsky and, according to telegraph accounts, had the edge on the New Yorker in 13 of the 15 rounds. LJARRY WILLS has joined the Sam Langford Hippodrome com pany, taking the laee left vacant by the retirement of Joe Jeanette. Harry and "Tham" are having fre quent "fights" these days and, Tues day night, it was Harry's turn to win. He did it at St Louis in an eight-round affair. DURITYS and Everybodys furnish the morning sport at Rio Grande park on Sunday. Feldmans meet the Seventh in the first afternoon game and Walz will meet the Erackajacks in the closing event. DAUL FISHER is already in de mand as a pitcher for the semi pro, teams of the southwest He is now in Roswell, pitching in a three game series for Capitan against Ros well. He will be back in time to work for the Everybodys on Sunday.
