Mentor Also to Act as Instructor for
Girls at William Smith College,
n Affiliated Institution.
Salary to Be $3000.
BY ROSCOE FAWCETT.
Dr. G. J. Sweetland. Jr.. athletic di
rector at Willamette University. Sa
lem, for four years past, has accepted
a similar position with Hobart College.
Geneva, N. Y., and will take up his new
duties In the Fall. He will also have
charge of the physical training of the
young- women of the affiliated school,
"William Smith College.
Coach Sweetland's salary will be ap
proximately $3000 a year, it is under
stood. "While it has been known for some
time that Eastern institutions have
been trying to attract the veteran men
tor away from the Northwest, the news
of his acceptance of the Hobart offer
will be a severe shock to Salem.
Dispatch. Coitrnu Rumor.
Telegraphic dispatches from Geneva
last night confirmed the rumor, as fol
lows: "Geneva. N. Y., Feb. 1. (Special.)
That Dr. G. J. Sweetland, Jr., of Salem,
Or., has been engaged as physical and
athletic director at Hobart College next
year was the announcement made by
President Lyman R. Powell today. His
salary win be in the neighborhood of
"Hobart's new head is sparing no" ef
forts to make the college one of the
best in the United States and he is se
lecting on his faculty the strongest
men that can be obtained."
Dr. Sweetland has achieved remark
able success everywhere he has
coached, In the East, Middle West and
Pacific Northwest, and the school on
Seneca Lake is to be congratulated.
For three years Coach Sweetland's
high school eleven at Ishpeming cap
tured the championship of Michigan;
following that his University of North
Dakotans won three state champion
ships in four years, defeating Juneau's
South Dakota n varsity the only time
they met, SC to 6.
Orchards Attract Coach.
The veteran then became interested
In Orchard lands in Oregon and came
"West, coaching Kverett High for one
season and losing only one game.
In four years at Willamette Dr
Sweetland has done wonders. He has
put Willamette on the map in everv
branch of athletics, particularly, foot
hall. During his regime Willamette
has administered defeats to the Uni
versity of Oregon and to the crack
Multnomah Club, while his basketball
and baseball teams have won victories
at various times over all the strong
Willamette's football eleven wal
loped Montana a year ago. 30-9. Last
Fall Willamette exerted a strong claim
on the state championship by virtue
of Its 6-3 defeat of Oregon, which later
tied with the Oregon Aggies, 10-10.
Dr. Sweetland is a hard worker, an
expert in every line of physical train
ing, is a graduate in liberal arts, in
medicine and holds a master arts de
gree. While Hobart is a trifle too small to
successfully cope with Yale, Harvard,
Syracuse and other top-notch Eastern
colleges, its teams can count on the
best handling to be obtained. The
Episcopalians, in fact, will be fortunate
if they hold the Salem wizard more
than one year, for it is known that
some of the big Northwest schools are
after him for 1915.
OI.I GKEEK TESTS REVIVED
Discus Throw and Javelin Hurl to
Be Part or College Athletics.
BERKELEY. Cal.. Feb. 14. The an
Ment Greek athletic tt sts were revived
today by the Bib C Society of the Uni
versity of California, which has the
direction of the Pacific Coast Inter
scholastic field day that will be held
here in April. The two events are the
discus throw and hurling the Javelin.
Although both are recognized Olympic
game events, they have not been at
tempted heretofore by preparatory
school athletes in the West.
One reason' given foe introducing
these events aside from the possibility
of developing Olympic material, Is that
they will be included In the 1915 pro
gramme at the Panama-Pacific games.
For the first time in these inter
Bcholastlc meets, the fourth place man
will score a point this year. He also
will receive a bronze medal.

Kendall on Friday night before Nell

AL COOK .CHOSEN CAPTAIN
Only 18" Players Have Signed but
25 Are Counted On at Training
Quarters Manager to Play
Third Part of Season.
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 14. (Special.)
Arthur Devlin, manager of the Oak
land club, just off the train from a
long journey, across tho continent, put
his shoulder to the wheel today in
whipping- baseball affairs into shape
across the bay. He went over the play
ers on the club roster and found that
he had 18 men signed, with seven still
out of the fold.
Devlin expects to have 25 players at
the training camp, eight of them being
pitchers, four catchers, seven infielders
and live outfielders.
"I believe the team will improve at
least 60 per cent over last season's
form," said Devlin today. "The new
spirit of the men alone will make a
big difference, and there will be im
provement in the outfield and the pitch
ing staff that will be noticeable. I was
disappointed in not getting many of
the players I was after, but I feel that
we will have a good fighting team.
"Our infield and outfield is com
pleted and I expect to have the battery
men lined up In a few days. Malarkey,
Christian and Geyer have practically
agreed on terms. Alexander is the only
catcher signed, but If we can get Mitze
to return it will mean a. lot to the
team. Roberts is a peculiar holdout. In
that we do not know what he wants.
They tell me the pitchers were away
off form last season, and I am looking
for them to come back in 1914 and
show the stuff they did in 1912.

Yale took the English system as its
standard in 1913. It had the English

Now it will have the American stroke

The University of California tried the

The recent agitation relative to the

baseball has led to many Interesting
proposals offered as a solution of the
so-called evil. A number of the leading
Eastern college team captains have an
nounced that they are in favor of the
collegian being permitted to play for
money or other Inducements during the
vacation months without affecting his
amateur status In college sports. Fac
ulty opposition Is likely to prevent the
adoption of any such rule, but Dr.
Young, of Cornell, has advanced .an
idea which may receive more consider

according to the degree of the strict
ness with which they observe the ama
teur rule in baseball.
"The remedy for the present unsat

Young, "lies in the hands of the Na
