OL.O NASSAU today is singing the praise of another of her illustri ous sons. Pitcher Steve White, who gained fame yesterday by his wonderful work in subduing the Yale Bulldog, the ancient enemy of the Tiger In the deciding game of the Tlger-Eli series upon which hinged Princeton's chances of winning the intercollegiate baseball championship, a feat which has become habitual with the Jersey collegians. The Tiger twlrler was opposed by Pitcher Hartwell, of Yale, one of the cleverest pitchers the Blue has ever boasted. The Yale man haiPthe Tiger ■tickers helpless in eight of the nine innings, but Steve White was strong in every round. A temporary lapse in the fielding end of the game when the Tale men made two errors between which was sandwiched Sterrett's single in the fourth, was responsible for the only Princeton run, and gave the Tigers the game by a score of 1-0 The game was played on the battle field of the Brooklyn Nationals in the presence of some ten thousand spec tators. The fair day brought out fair ad mirers, wearing the colors of both of the two great rival colleges. The sombre Orange and Black waving in majestic contrast to the proud and stately blue of Yale. Never did the Yale players or rooters let up for a single moment, and even after White had given a great exhibi tion by fanning the first two men to face him in the ninth did the Yale sup porters admit defeat. The sons of both -universities who have gained fame in all walks of life and professions, and some of the most \ prominent lawy-ap*. statesmen and doc * tors were present. A glance at the box score will show how dose a pitchers' battle the argu ment was. Both teams took turns at making spectacular fielding plays. ' Billiard Tables, Bowling Alleys L par FIXTURES.

First Baseman Hughes col lected the other pair. Badger, Burdette and Reilly were the Yalesians who sin gled. Hartwell allowed one pass and White gave but one. White had four whiffs to his credit, while his op ponent had but one. Yale pulled oft the only double play of the game, but the Tigers outflelded the losers, who made three errors to the Tigers' one. It was in the fourth round that the Bengals clawed the mighty Bulldog. Sanford White opened the lucky in ning by beating out a hit to Stillwell. Sterrett came up with a timely safety to right. The instant the bat hit the little leather-covered sphere White started off from first. Corey, in an endeavor to catch the 'Tiger shortstop at third, threw wild. The Yale third sacker, Merritt, made a desperate attempt to stop the heave, but the ball bounded off his glove and rolled to the grand stand. White raced home and Sterrett jumped along to sec ond. Loud rose Princeton's exulting col lege roars, and with one run In, none out and a man on second, it certainly looked blue for the New Havenites. Preston sacrificed, Sterrett to third. De Vito, the next man up, and the Tigers' heavy-hitting outfielder, smashed the ball toward Shortstop Stillwell. The hit looked good, but the Bulldog short fielder grabbed It and sent the sphere to Merritt in time to double up Sterrett off third. It was a timely double play and pre vented the Tigers from making one or two more. After that Hartwell tight ened up, with some great support! only one hit being credited to thirteen men that faced him in the remaining five innings. Steve W'hite, the “Joisey” twirler, turned the same trick, thir teen blueleg* coming to the plate, and only one being able to hit safely.

CLAY SMITH SEARCHING FOR A NEW INFIELDER: _* i TOE McGINNITY is baiting his hook these days for a major league tn / fielder, now playing witfti a National League team, and he believes he has an excellent prospect of landing the man, if the other major league clubs will naive. Henry Clay Smith, the "Iron Man's'' partner, is now on the mission of landing the inflelder, but the “'Iron Man” must necessarily keep quiei the name of the bird he is seeking to snare. Johnny Nee has been playing a | pretty steady game at third, and the work of the Newark infield has been of a much higher standard since Johnny was first put on the red-light bag. If the deal falls through Nee will be kept on third, for he gives promise of developing into a first-class player at the difficult corner, after he gets the throw to first down accurately Arthur Irwin, the New York Amer ican scout, was at the Newnrk-Provi dence double-header yesterday, osten sibly to look over Johnny Nee. Per haps Arthur would like to get his finger in the pie, as manager of the Providence club, too. it Is said that he is In bad In New York. George Boice. the Irvington hoy, will pitch for Newark against Jersey City tomorrow, while Charley Smith was scheduled to work today, according to the plans Joe McGinnity made last, night. Boice will be worked again on Tuesday against Rochester — George Smith, the new Tiger second sacker, had not arrived up to noon, though he was to report at once, ac cording to the terms of the agreement. The Tigers open a three-game scries today at Jersey City. They will make their first appearance on Sunday here with Rochester. McGinnity and Mc Connell, two of the best pitchers In the league, being scheduled to fight It out In the opener. A golden opportunity to climb out of last place slipped away from the Tigers yesterday. By winning a double header the Tigers would liaVe shaken the dust of last place from their heels and made a substantial gain on the Jersey City Skeeters, who got only an even break at Baltimore, but Bediout, a Fall River recruit with the Gr.i: . had a great day, and in the first gam • blanked the Tigers, not a man reaching third for ^Newark in the entire nine Innings. Only one hit was made off the youngster. Jack Kelly was responsible for that in the ninth after two were out, anti the Providence youngster had vlsons of a no-hit, no-run game. Joe Mc Ginnity tolled on the mound for New ark in this session and was, as usual, effective with men otj bases, but a timely triple fronv Perry's swatstick, whh two on bases in the third, broke up the game. It was the first tin* that Joe Mc Ginnity has ever been beaten at the Elmwood Grounds, in Providence. Previously he had been beaten once at Rocky Point, where the Grays p;uy their Sunday games. He had won the first game of a double-header, but lost out in the second start. The fans were pulling hard for Bedi ent to pitch a no-hit game as the ninth came around, but he was plainly nerv | Daily Record of | I Tig ers Bihglihg + + _ ? X AB. R. H.

He got inta a hole by giving the Newarker two bails, then two strikes, another ball anl then at the critical moment he whizzed over a crossfire that Bailey missed and the fans went mild. Gillespie made short work of Agler, but Kelly hit one that would have been a triple had he not pulled It to i nuch to left, then ‘Kel'' took ano’ther strike before lining one toward Rock, which struck the ground and bounded badly to centre, giving him a hit. He stole second, but Dalton was out by a luir breadth, Rock to Tarleton, ending the game. Bee pitched the second game and won It, 8-3. He never had to extend himself, because the Tigers drove “Slow Joe" Doyle off the hill and then scored on Buzick at will, making up for the lacking of hitting In the first game by scoring fourteen hits In this encounter. | Box Scores of | Yesterday s Games I Flrnt Game.

ROOT FINISHES AHEAD OF COLLINS AND WILEY Champion Not in Such Good Shape, but Syracuse Lad Gives Winner a Hard Battle—Kramer Noses Out Clarke in the Five-Mile—Ben Hill Gets Liberal Handicap and Leads Field Over Tape in the Half-Mile. < EDDIE ROOT showed his ability as it pace follower in the first night a meet at the Newark Velodrome last ntglit to be greater than he waa given credit for, when he won the three-cornered twenty-mile match from George Wiley and Champion Elmer Collins, beating the former by one .«;> shv of two miles and the latter by feu laps. The motor-paced race was the feature performance of the evening. The three men were sent away from a standing start. Eddie Root was the tirst to get his pare. At a quarter of a lap Col lins picked up his pacemaker, and a few yards farther Wiley was behind his machine. It was an exciting battle between Root and Wiley in the iar*y part of tile race. During the first five miles the Boston and Syracuse boys were fighting nip and tuck, the labor being only a quarter of a wheel behind his rival at times Collins, on the other hand, was ,ist, being just about three-quarters of a lap in the rear around the fourth mile. The Boston youth, by excellent .vorit on the part of his pacemaker, Charley Turville, one of the greatest man on the machines today, managed to pull away from his opponents nearly very lap, and at five and one-third miles he had lipped Collins. A few moments later the champion, trying to regain the lost lap, lost his pace. After pass ing the six-mile mark Wiley was i n the verge of passing Root, but 'ns pacemaker, Jimmy Hunter, was a bit too fast for him and he jumped from his pace. The competition throughout was o. • citing, although Root lapped his rivals several times. Collins seemed to b< away off form, losing his pace several times. Before the event it was state 1 that he was not in the best condition for the battle. However, even in his greatest form he would have to go h a mightiest to defeat the blonde boy from Boston. At no time during the entire twenty miles did Root lose his par* maker. Wiley deserves considerable credit for his wonderful riding, although he was four lap.4 behind at the finish. It w is he who made the jaee exciting b\ his ability to give Root a battle from the start. The race was made in the time of 27 minutes 29 3-n seconds. It "'as good time, considering the little ambunt of practise that either had owinj to the rain during the week. In the five-mile pro. the last event on the program. Frank Kramer nosel out Jackie Clarke at the tape by six Inches. The one-mile repechage handicap for the amatnri was the first race on the. bill. There were ten trial heats, one man qualifying for thecflnal. The non • qualifiers were given a chance in the consolation race, the first three men to start in the final. Frank Cavanaugh of this city, managed to finish a wheel to the good over Paul Heidrick, also of i Newark. The latter barely beat out Herman Brooks, of Passaic, for second place, the Passaic county lad being nosed out by half a wheel. Alvin Loftus, of Providence, brought home victory in the three-mile open for the simon pures. which was run In four half-mile trial heats. Ben Hill, the pride of the track be cause of his willingness to work both day and night, celebrated the first eve ning of bike riding on the new saucer by capturing the half-mile handicap with much to spare. He was given a lead of about 140 yards and, with the crowd pulling for him. managed to win by fifteen yards. He stopped to get off his wheel in front of the grand stand and, stepping on the track, walked off slowly, saying "I could have done better than that.” Welt, maybe he could if he had more strength. He would surely have been beaten if there had been a half lap more to go. All the trial heats of the three-milfl open amateur, run at a half mile, fur nished Interest and excitement. Frank Blatz, the amateur champ, was first in his .'ionl, tut was beaten out by Al vin Lof'us i’f the final. Blatx wee leading at the bell, but by a beautiful sprint Loftus made the Jersey City boy look foohsh, finishing about two lengths to 'he good. The five-mile open for the profes sional contingent had about thirty starters, Including all the big fellows. At on<j mile Krebs and Magin went out for a lap. ‘'Jumbo'- Wells, pugilist and would-be cyclist, held the bunch back for a lap. but Johnny Bedell soon jumped out and the string followed. Kfebs and Magin were caught bef ire one lap. Two laps from home big Mac Farland came from the back along fha pole and. getting in front, took Clarke | around on his rear wheel Mac Kept, up a terrific pace for the last lap. On the back stretch Kramer started h‘s sprint, each yard inching up on :he rocket. Ten yards to go, Frank gave lone more kick and won by inches. Hid | Jackie kept up his sprinting he might have finished ahead of the champ, but i he didn't, so what’s the use. | The sumrhary: Halt-mile Handicap (Professional)—Won by Hen Hill, Newark. 120 yards; second.
