LONDON, March M. The Cambridge

from Putney to Mortlake on the Thumes.
Tho distance, four and one-fourth miles,
was coVered In the fast tlmo of 10:23.
Cambridge crossed the line four and one
half lengths ii) the lead.
The Cambridge crew had been tho fa
vorlto throughout the training season and
Justified the predictions that It would win
by making .tho race a procession from
Mart to finish.
Cambridge won the" toss for position and
chose the Surrey'-sfde of the river, thus
obtaining tho advantage of shelter from
a light wind.
Tho oars of the Oxford crew were the
first to grip the water, but the longer
stroke of the Light Blues Immediately
savo them the lead. After this there was
no doubt as to the result.
When the crews shot through Ham
mersmith bridge, the hulf-way mark,
Cambridge had a lead of two lengths.
This was maintained until the boats ap
proached Barnes bridge, where tho leaders
t-nurtul and took another length,
'j A gallant effort was then mado by the
Dark Blues and tho gap between the
boats was momentarily lessened.

A platform on which 150 spectators were

WILD FOWL BECOMING TAME
Ducks Laugh at Hunters as Though
Understanding the Law.

How would you llko to be hungry and
bloodthirsty, bound hand nnd foot, with
an awful itching in your trigger finger,
and havo a nice fat, Juicy, well-fed mal
lard duck alight on your heaving bosom'
and laugh In your, face?
Those gentlemen Who In the spring,
with polished musket and well-filled can
teen, have been wont to go forth into the
silent places and slew wild fowl now pass
every mud puddle with averted face and
haunt tl)e pinochle tabic, where1 the. only
fowl they garner Is a flock of foul lan
guage Our leading- duck trailers, whoseduties
toward meeting tho Jilgh cos of living
carry them by rivers, lakes . and ponds,
tell startling and welri' tales of the
docility -and domestic tendencies of the
thousands of wild fowl which are haunt
ing our local waters In seeming knowl
edge of tho new federal law preventing
spring shooting.
Refuse to VI):
Georgo Redlck, who recently had occa
sion to make a. trip through the state,
declares that the birds along the Platte,
feeding and resting upon the water, abso
lutely refuse to fly at anything but a
veritable hurrah.
Conductors and railroad mdn along the
lines of the Union Pacific and Burlington
roads, who havo been at the game for
years, icport u greater abundance of
ducks and gceso tlian has been apparent
In tho last twelve or fifteen years. That
the hunters are living up to the law re
cently enacted by tho government is con
ceded by these men, who are In a posi
tion to see or learn of the general ten
dencies of the sportsmen.
While a great many of the younger
hunters are inclined to believe tho law
unfair, their number Is outranked a thou
sand fold by thoso who know that the last
stand of tho wild fowl In this rapidly
populating country Is being nurtured and
helped by the authorities, with an idea
toward keeping as long as possible the
fast disappearing game birds.
Nevertheless, It Is decidedly provoking
to tho man who season after season
1mA been accustomed to secure a full
game bag and stomach by th! fc&preatlon
to know that veritably In his froiit yard
are birds wljo, with brown gravy and
hot stuffing; would help supply tho Sun
day dinner nicely.
lltrds nt Seymour I.nU.r
Harry Townsend early In the week took
a Jaunt In tho vicinity of the Seymour
Lake club and on the body of water was
able to approach within a stone's throw
of a largo flock of wild ducks, which he
caused to rise from the water by throw
ing a rock in their direction.
At Carter lake. In the vicinity of the
Carter Lake club, and along the ponds
surrounding the lake, the birds refuse to
rise of leave tho water even when ap
proached by a rowboat. Officer Nichols
chased a flock of mallards before him in
a boat clear across Carter lake, the birds
merely swimming ahead of him and turn
ing to one side when they approached the
farther bank. .
To Ttat tli" I.nTr.
In order to test the validity of the fed
eral la, A. C. Connors of Springfield,
III., and president of the Illinois State
Sportsman's association, recently shot a
duck and filed tho information In the
United States court in order to got a rul
ing. Mr. Connors, who declares the law
is unconstitutional, will be represented by
a staff of the leading attorneys of the
section. The expense will be cared for
by the association. A recent ruling puts
the ban on shooting plover, but does not
protect doves.
Concerning the tamencss of the ducks,
the Monroe Republican says:
With the advent of tho federal game
laws protecting ducks and geese, the birds
of flight have been very plentiful In this
locality. In former years they always
seemed to fly as 'high us they could to
get out of the range of the guns of tb'' ',
hunters, but now1 they say thf the eni

Rourke Gets Little Light
From Week's Work With
New Men Owing to Cold
Two practlco battles between the Regulars and the
Yanlgans last week gave Pa Itourko an opportunity to
size up his new players and decide on a tentative lineup
for tho approaching season. Although tho woathor has
not been of the best and the players have been re
luctant to exert themselves to tho last notch because of
that fact, It is easy to noto possible high spots as woll
as tho low. .
Taken as a whole, the athletes signed by Pa look
very promising. 'Most of them are big and husky, nnd
Mr players we always promising It they
have any natural ability at nil. Tho
outfield looks the better, although tho
infield and the pitching staff will un
doubtedly be far superior to last year.
Tho catching staff Is weak, but nnother
catcher Is promised by h big league, club.
KruR, Thomason, CoiiBalton, Bell and
Tayne make up n classy aggregation of
athletes for the outfield. The first thrv
have first choice, but ,IJcll has proved
a sensational fielder and If he can hit
like he did last year, one of the trio will
have to fight for a Job. Roll Is a whirl
wind on tho bases, too. Payne is more
or less of a utility man. He has played
third In the practice games, due to the
absence of Bill Hchlpke, and his article
of base ball was very good, lie nailed
slow rollers with Hert Nlehoff alaorlty
and slammed the ball over to first In

hn can field like that and can hit as
he has been doing In the practice games
