STILL IN RUNNING
Tboufh Fourth in Peoria Tour
Bey Augustana Has Chance
at State Title.
WILL GO TO BLOOMINGTON
Aeempl'ihl All That Was Desired
After Confer. With Bradley
Had Been Lost.
Although Augustana did not make
aj favorable showing at Peoria in the
division tournament as was generally
expected, the gold and blue are still
ja the running for the conference title,
as all four teams w hich will enter the
fnais t Bloomington next Friday
Till nave an equal chance. Augustan a
lost two of the four games played at
feoris. although in the final game
wfth Normal, the locals did not put up
a strong fight as the result w ould not
eliminate either team and there was
eoth'ng at stake.
That Augustana deserve, a good
standing among the teams of the
sortherfl division is indicated by the
fact that Hedding lias been beaten by
the locals twice this season, in fact
Aigustana is the only team that has
worsted Hedding on their ovn floor.
Then again the honors are -even
(Ten as between Augustana and Brad
lav and IlPdding and Bradley. Both
Heading and Augustana have beaten j
Lombard. If Augustana has the shade j
oo Hedding who won first in the tour-
nament. then the locals deserve a high .
place in the rank of the four teams, j
The game on Saturday afternoon be
tween Augustana and Carthage was
lot an interesting one. Coach Con
rid played all his subs in order to
save his strength for the game in the
trecicg with Lombard. But even at
tiat Augustana worsted Carthage by a
score of 49 to C5.
Big Came In Evening.
The big game for the locals was the
contest with Lombard at 7: GO Satur-
toy evening. Lombard started off w ithj
lead and keDt it throueh all the
nice until during the last half inin-!
Bte's play when Eric Anderson shot a
field goal for Augustana. The crowd
of about 1.000 fairly went wild with
entfcasiasm over the throw and when
the gun sounded Augustana had won
ky 27 to 26. This point gave the locals
tieir place in the finals.
The third game for the gold and blue
Eaturday came at 9:20 the same even
teg with Normal. Again Conrad play
ed bis subs and interest lagged. The
gaae ended in favor of Normal 39 to
21 This gave Augustana fourth place
la the tournament.

is back Charles A. McCulIoch, general
manager of the Farm a lee Transfer

chase Charles P. Taft's holdings in the
Chicago cubs, according to reports
that are buzzing about the loop.
Mr. McCulIoch is after the cubs and
has been for soru time. At first he
was supposed to have the backing of
James A. Pugh and William Hale
Thompson, but these two dropped out
of the race for some reason or other:
Saturday McCulIoch sent two tele
grams to President John K. Tener of
the National league, telling of bis de-
sire to buy the stock, and naming
John R. Thompson as the man behind
the deal. He also wired to Taft asking
for terms and announced that they
were ready, to buy the cubs even if
they had to purchase all of the stock.

tion which will through its manage
ment keep the courts In excellent
shape all the time and arrange for
additional ones if necessary.
According to the new ruling of the
association each person who wants to
play must show his membership card
which is withheld unless the dues of
the association are paid. .The commit
tee can 'call upon any of the members
to help keep the courts in order and a
fine is imposed if the member fails
At the meeting of the association
late Saturday the following officers
were elected for the year:
President Karl Larson.
Vice-president Linus Herman.

will make ground rules and carry out
the new policies of the association.

Engagement Fights Jack
Johnson in June.
London, March 9. A large crowd of
sporting men gathered at Euston Sta
tion Saturday to bid bon voyage to
Frank Moran, the American white)
hope, who sailed on the Mauretania
preparatory to filling a vaudeville en
gagement of several weeks. After this,
Moran will return here to train for his
bout with Jack Johnson for the heavy
weight world's championship in Paris
on June 27.
"I certainly expect to beat John
son," said Moran. 'I am counting the
hours until I get into the ring, for It
is an opportunity I have worked and
waited for a long time. I am in good
shape now, but will be better after a
few weeks' work." .
Moran has gained wide popularity
among British sportsmen by Jiis gen
tlemanly and unassuming manner. He
said he will try to bring back AI Ku

to act as 'sparring partners. He will
train at Aupero, France. :
COURSE OF A PITCHED BALL
Why a Straight Fast One Jumps Side
ways In the Air.
That a pitched baseball curves in the
direction In which the nose of the ball
Is moving because of the spin upward
If the twist given by the pitcher is up
ward, toward the right if the twist Is
to the right, and so on is a matter of
experience that is qnite comprehensi
ble, but bow a hard pitched ball should
jump sidewise in " a most Irregular
manner..- -although pitched ' straight
without spinning is certainly puzzling.
In the Journal of the Franklin Insti
tute Professor W. S. Franklin of I-
bigh. university expounds the pbenome- J
ed balls. Multitudes of "fans" who
have always supposed that the bafflins
qualities of a straight pitched ball
were due. simply to. its swiftness never
suspected this eccentricity. Professor
Franklin states the case in this way:
Consider a very smooth ball which is
moving through still water withont
spinning. There is certainly no more
reason why the ball should jump to
the right than to the left. Therefore it
must continue to move straight for
ward. That is good logic. But such a
ball is no more snbject to logic than is
a sharp stick. The fact Is that the ball
does Jump sidewise and in a most lr-1
regular manner. This may be shown
by dropping a smooth marble in a jar
of still water. The marble goes nearly
straight for several inches and then
suddenly jumps sidewise. Similarly a
smooth baseball jumps sidewise Irreg
ularly as It moves through the air if
the ball Is not spinning.
The explanation lies in the fact that
a rapidly moving stream of air splits
when it flows past a ball with unstable
dividing lines or vortex sheets. The
unstable sheet will spurt now upward,
now downward. The condition is the
same when the ball splits the air and
is sbonted In a glancing manner past
the bat The only requisite for this
baffling effect Is power in the pitcher's
Strang Arabian Custom.
