Ilcprrsentatfvo Dawson Plans to Tlave Scrlci In Honor of Centenary. Washington, Dec. 30. Representa tive Dawson of Iowa Is devising a scheme for the celebration of tlie'com Ing Lincoln eentuary. In which the public will take part. His plan Is to have the government Issue a set of special pof-tage stamps which nhall be commemorative of the birth of Kie great war president, and he haa de cided to Introduce a Joint resolution to that end when congress re-convenes after the holidays. He has not yet determined upon the details of the plan, but his general Idea Is that the different denomina tions of stamps shoul portray the most eventful scenes In the life of Sir. I,In coin. In this way, argues Mr. Dawson, Lincoln's career would be brought constantly to the attention of all the people of the country, and he thinks that It would convey an object lesson of Immense Importance.

The death yes terday In a San Francisco hospital of Dwlght T. Urlawold, the Yale oars man who collapsed while stroking his eight against Harvard at New LonJ don last June, has furnished rowing men with a topic which bids fair to be much discussed. Grlswold's case, It la generally admitted. Is one of ihe most remarkable Instances of athlete uriswoia, u win or remnmoerou, hesitation. The year before he had stroked the four which had won1 by ten lengths. At the time he entered' the race last June he was twenty- three years or age, weignea oniy ioi , n .... -I - n n J afAn.l -1 v fna nnt nelv DIIU .vwv. " - ' v As oarsmen go, he was not considered typical. Yet there had been otner strokes at Yale and elsewhere who were not unlike Grlswold In general makeup. They had stroked their crews to victory on more than one oc casion. . Grlswold's collapse came at the two-mlle-and-a-half mark, when the race was little more than 'half over. There had been delays In starting the shells; the crews had scarcely been am on.ac fnm V A Orat tlm IvhAn A. mishap, due to the snapping of a lare of Captain Ide's shoe, halted both, eights, and made a second start nec tesary. This occurrence, It Is believed, had not a little to do with the events which followed. , How the race was rowed; how the Yale shell stayed beside the red-tip- ' ped oars for the first half-distance; how Grlswold, limp and lifeless, Vas lifted out, leaving the remaining sev en to finish out the race, hopelessly beaten all these facts are, perhaps, too well known to need repeating. It will never be decided Just what real effect that race had upon Grlswold. Some reports have It that he never was a well man after the unfortunate occurrence. Others say he recoverej almost Immediately. According to Julian W. Curtlss, Yale's graduate advisory coach, there Is no connection whatever between Grlswold's collapse .six montha ago, and his death from typhoid and pneu monia yesterday. Mr. Curtlss, who, next to Coach Kennedy, knows most about rowing affairs at New Haven, said this afternoon that the public had never really understood the Grlswold ; Incident. "I wish It would be made plain." he remarked, "that Grlswold's collapso was not In any sense due to physical exhaustion or poor physical condition. "I am positively convinced that such u. n..n T tints Hrlswold - was inn inc vo.' . - ..,-" - . i . ui.M tVirniKrVwint hts career on nncw mm v". ' r the Yale squan, ana wneu im ruic the race he was In the very bet con dltlon physically. My own opinion, ; and that of physicians who amended him after he was taken from the boat, . was. and Is, that the young man suf fered a nervous collapse flue to over- consclentlousness and too great leal to do his utmost for the crew and for Yale, Grlswold was not overtrained. H was over-zealous. There Is sucn a thing as being too conscientious, too eager to make ood, and Grlswold had that characteristic above all others. "As a man, he represented the hign- est possible type. He always wamea to do his best. He never xnougnt ui himself, but always kept In mind the Idea of serving Tale. Around the boathouse, he was in variably silent. I used to go up ana slap him on the back, and say, 'Brace up, old man; there's noinmg io no gloomy about.' We saw him stroke that great fouroared race, In 1907, and we watched him In the regattas ai New Haven, and he never showed any signs of collapse. I flon't think there was anv way of foretelling wnai wouiu happen at New London last June. As I say, Grlswold was in me pinn oi physical condition. What was going on in his mind an tnai nine won yond our knowledge. ti told me afterward tnai ms sensation was of a pall gradually sink- noon him. It kept getting worse, be said, and he felt he was losing con trol of himself. He was cnoKing wuen we took htm out of the boat, and breathing very hard. The doctors said these were symptoms of nervous, not physical, exhaustion. "Now, vou cannot make me believe that all 'this must be attributed to boat-racing. Such things oocur In al most every branch of activity. In Grlswold's case It might, presumably, have come from business worry or anxiety, as well as from rowing. But this much T know: His death yesterday cannot Justly be traced to New Lon don. Grlswold went 'away to the country immediately after the race. I was In constant communication with bis brother at the' time, and through him I learned that wight was recov ering rapidly. He soon regained hit health, so I was told. "It is absurd for these peAple to tain about a three-mile race mstea 01 four-mile, The distance na do with It. In Grlswold s case, It would have been the am at elthw distance. In a, three-mile pull, the men would only row a little harder for less time. Grlswold collapsed at the two-and-a-holf-mlle mark In a four-w i 1 race- he probblv would have done the same thing at. the two-mile mark had the. race been for three miles. e never placed very much stock n the three-mile Idea, and certainly the- is nothing In the Grlswold affair ,o Btrnngthen the argument." Mr. Curtlss wns asked whether h thought- the dtath of the Yale oarsmatt would be likely to Injure rowing as s, snort, In the general estimation of th public. I Will not concede tnai ii u ..-- rowing," was the response.
