Athletic Association Runs
Away With Meet, Scoring
Total of 49 Points.
Charles Pores Lowers National Sfark
Held by Himself, Covering Long
' Distance' In 24:3 4-5i . For-'
zner Time Was 25:23 S-5.
GREAT LAKES, 111, Sept. 21. West
ern athletes made a clean sweep in the
senior championships of the National
A. A- V. outdoor track and field games
at the Great Lakes Naval Training Sta
tion today, completely iwamplng the
Lastern entries. The Chicago Athletic
Association team, which won the junior
honors yesterday, carried off the
seniors with a total of 49 points.
The Great Lakes team bagged 31
points for second place, and the Illinois
Athletic Club 25 for third place. The
best .the East could do was the per
formance of the Pelham Bay Naval
Station team, which tied Camp Fre
mont, Col., for fourth place with 11
points. The Royal Air Force, of To
ronto, OnL. was next in the list of point
winners with 9. Fifteen other teams
divided the rest of the points.
Lieutenant Matt McGrath. of the New
Tork police "force, partly redeemed the
showing of the Eastern teams by land
ing the highest individual scoring
honors. McGrath, competing unattached
because of the decision of New Tork
clubs to abandon competitive athletics
until the end of the war, scored 10
points, with victories In the 66-pound
weight and hammer throw. McGrath
won the hammer event with a heave
of 173 feet. 1114 inches, and hurled the
66-pound weight 35 feet. 9 inches.
Compared with the Junior games yes
terday, which developed close competi
tion until the last event, the perform
ances today were mediocre. Only one
record was shattered. This was in the
five-mile run. which Charles Pores, of
Pelham Bay, the National "champion,
won in 34:36 4-5. beating his old mark
of 25:23 3-5. made at Sc. Louis a year
ago. Pores triumphed over Earl John
son, the Baltimore negro, now stationed
at Camp Upton, who won the Junior
five-mile yesterday.

National Tennis Champion Has
Difficult Game to Block.
Californlan Plays Every Ball and Is
Rarely "Accd," So That Onl
Points He Loses Are Result
of HIs'Oivn Mistake.
R. Lyndley Murray, the new national
tennis champion is one who upholds
the Californlan tradition of "Jazz" as
an essential for athletes of any kind.
It was Maury McLoughlin in 1912
and 1913 who startled the East with
his whirlwind play on the courts and
made "California" synonimous with
"tennis." They called McLoughlin the
"Comet" and he was well named, for
never had the game seen such an as
sortment of smashes and drives as that
with which McLoughlin overwhelmed
the crack players of the Atlantic
coast. . The experts frowned and said
such a style of play was impossible,, too
replete with errors and therefore not
scientific. But their estimate of the
"Comet" was consumed in the '. bril
liance of .his play.
Fighting Game Played.
Lynn Murray, the new. chamnion,
plays that same hard fighting game
that marked the work of McLoughlin.
His service is not as severe as the for
mer champion, it Is not as unplayable
as that of Strachan or Cliff Herd, but
coming from a left-handed player it Is
most bewildering. His strokes are not
In themselves the equal of such an
artist as Williams or Mel Long, and
many of the Parrets and Dohertys
who write on the scientific side of the
game would criticize his foot work as
faulty and ill-timed. Where lies the
secret of Murray's wonderful record?
A close analysis of the matches in
which Murray has figured since he en
tered tournament- competition will
show that he has rarely been "aced."
He plays every balL The points he
loses are only on his own errors. He Is
a wonderful court coverer, probably
the best in the game today. He plays
at top speed all the time. He has the
spirit that will not admit defeat.
Champion Is Popular.
There is no champion more popular
than Lynn Murray, as his sportsman
ship is known wherever tennis is
played Taking up tennis as a side
line seven 'or eight years ago at Stan
ford University, he played as second
singles man In 1911, ranked about
equal to Morgan, the varsity captain
of 1912 and began' his tournament ca
reer in 1913. His rise has been rapid
and his regular training for the. half
mile has stood him in good stead. It
takes a great spirit and a powerful
physique to stand up under the strain
of tennis as Xynn Murray plays it.
When Murray is playing every muscle
of his body is concentrated in the
stroke and under perfect control.
Sportsmen, However, Are Now Taking
Greater Interest In Propagation
and In Preservation Measures.
The wild game of west-central Min
nesota is limited mostly to wild ducks
and prairie chickens. The many small
lakes and outlying marshy sloughs are
ideal places for ducks, and large num
bers nest here every summer, which
affords good hunting at the opening of
the hunting season before the north
ern ducks arrive. While prairie chick
ens are not as common as the wild
duck, they will doubtless become more
abundant In the future. Foxes and
small predacious animals are a seri
ous drawback to the. natural increase
of game birds In this section and some
effective means is bound to be takes) to
reduce this destruction.
At present little is being done along
the line of game conservation on the
part of the hunters, although a senti
ment along this line is growing which
is. hoped may result in a united ef
fort to -Improve the natural conditions
and aid in the propagation of wild
game. However, the state game de
partment Is doing a great work
throughout the state towards the In
crease an protection of the game, and
game refuges are being established
which will mean much to the hunter
in years to come. Gefese and brant are
seen here in fair numbers In the
spring, and it is probable that game
reserves and better protection may In
duce them to remain here for a while
during the Fall hunting season.
Practically all the lakes In 'this
state are well stocked with the best
varieties of fish and considerable at-

More Than 9000 Fight Fans Witness Bout and Receipt Total $17,000vv
. Swimming Golden Gate Commonplace Affair.- ;
AJJ FRANCISCO, Sept. 19. inot
since the old days when we had
ZO-round fights and championship
matches has there been so-much talk,
so many disputes and such an after
math as- what followed the Meehan
Dempsey battle' of last week.
The fans, are not yet done, talking
about it and they are not likely to fin
ish up in a hurry. Of course, the un
expectedness of it all, together with, a
decision that has been commended in
certain quarters and challenged in
others has been responsible for all the
excitement. -
Nobody expected Meehan to win. As
a matter of fact, they were betting
10 to 8 that he wouldn't last the limit.
And so, it was all the mr a surprise;
all the greater a sensation.
Eddie Graney handed down the de
cision -and to my way of thinking it
was the only thing to do. I reckoned
that the first round was fairly even.
The second must be given to Dempsey,
who scored a knockdown, while ' the
third and fourth unquestionably figure
for Sailor Willie, the Phat One.
And if that doesn't spell a win then
I miss my guess. .
ls experts were somewhat divided.
Bu t-whereas -a majority picked Meehan
as (he rightful winner nobody thought
Dempsey entitled to any more than
draw. .
This Is how the San Francisco papers
hsd it doped:
Meehan decision a good one Chron
Icle, Examiner and Daily News.
Draw Call-Post and The Bulletin.
Graney, criticised In certain quarters
for his fuling, chiefly by people who
said it was a shame to rob Dempsey of
his reputation and all at a benefit con
lest, has seen fit to answer.
Eddie pauses to remark that sent!
ment can't cut any figure where there
is a- decision to be awarded and then
goes on to say that. Meehan, in the
service of Uncle Sam, is Just as much
entitled to consideration as Dempsey
who was donating services but figures
to make a lot of money for himself
Just the same. ' V '
Eddie is quite right. That's no argu
ment at all.
The' Dempsey alibi and the one for
which Dempsey must he given a hear
ing is that he had a bad left hand. In
a bout with Terry Keller about two
weeks before he came here, Dempsey
broke a small bone in his hand. He
refused to offer that as an excuse prior
to the fight..
When he appeared for the match it
was noticed his hand was ttghtly taped
with bicycle tape. It is strictly against
local police ' regulations but when it
was explained why this had been done
and since Meehan withdrew his own ob
jections. Captain of Police Dan O'Brien
said there would be no protests.
Graney, hearing of this, suggested to
Kearns that it would be as well to
have a no-declsion bout; that he
thought it would protect Dempsey's in
terests far more.
But Kearns insisted.
"We must have a decision," he de
clared. "That was the agreement and
we want to go through with it." ,
So the decision had to be given. Now
there's no gainsaying the fact that this;
decision hurts Dempsey. Graney Is ai
referee of National standing. When he
gives an official ruling of the sort the
fight fans are going to Jay some atten
tion to it. l
It will damage Dempsey in the big
houses he was hoping to draw. Most
of all, it's going to stop his demanding
a match with Jess Willard. The cham
pion can say (and with a lot of argu
ment) that Dempsey must get a repu
tation; must beat Meehan before he as
pires to the title.
Naturally if Dempsey was to be pro
claimed as champion Meehan is now
the holder. But in spite of all the
talk Willard is regarded as champion
of the world even though a non-
fighting champion and somebody will
have to beat him to be considered next
in line.
Dempsey didn't stay long after the
match: He was booked for a ten
round bout in Reno Saturday "night
and left early in the morning. Evident
ly he wasn't feeling mild tempered for
Moran, the unknown heavyweight who
faced him, was knocked out as you have
been told in 70 seconds, or little more
than a minute.. .
Also. I have it on good authority.
tentlon is being given to replenishing
the supply. Fishing, like hunting, is
a popular sport in this section, and one
s almost certain of a good catch at the
proper season.
University - Coach. Receives Offer
From Vancouver Army Post.
SEATTLE. Wash.. Sept. 21. (Spe
cial.) Coach Hunt, of the University
of Washington, may take "the position
as athletic director of the Vancouver
(Wash.) post.
The Seattle mentor has received an
offer to teach athletics at the camp,
and he has "-not yet acted - upon the'
matter. He will wait until word is re
ceived from the War Department by
Dr. Suzxallo, president of the univer
" "
..... ............
Kearns sent out wires' to Eastern sport,
ing editors from Reno, advising them
that he had been robbed and -declaring-
the San Francisco papers, one and all,
stood by him. ' -
But that's not going to get Kearns
anywhere' or anything. He still has a
remarkably good scrapper In Dempsey.
I am rather inclined ,to the. opinion
that In a long-distance battle say 20
rounds Dempsey would beat Meehan.
But that's neither here nor there so
far as the benefit number was con
cerned. ' i
The attendance and the enthusiasm
were rather surprising. There were
9000 spectators in the house and the
receipts were Just $25 shy of $17,000.
There were no speeches" allowed and
no donations asked. At the time of the
Leonard benefit show, there were dona
tions to the tune of $4000 so the crowd
the other evening was Just about the
same size. i .
The funds will be used for the pur
chase of athletic equipment for naval
organizations and to a certain extent
for the Army. Jimmy Cof froth be
lieves the Navy should have the first
call. Inasmuch as Camp Fremont got
all of the Leonard benefit' funds and
that is quite likely the disposition that
will be made of it.
When you Northerners who attended
the Portland benefit show that Bobby
Evans staged saw Knockout Kruvosky
In action, you watched one lad who
has beaten Meehan. Fact is. the last
time these boys met, Kruvosky peat
Meehan and to the minds of a lot of
folks almost stopped Cute Willie. -
Just about that time Aleehan had s
divorce suit on tils hands. Further he
was in bad condition from lack of
training and really had some legitimate
excuses to offer. ' .
But what a tangle all this makes.
Dempsey had been hailed by some as
tile champion heavyweight, of the
world. Along comes Meehan to .win a
decision from Dempsey.
And going back over the , past
we recall that Kruvosky beat Meehan
and quite recently Fighting Billy Mur
ray, long ago consigned to the discard
beat Murray. And so it might go on.
There's apparently no clear right to
the title anywhere along the line.
Incidentally, you can thank Captain
of, Police O'Brien for Having Kruvosky
n Portland. The Kayo person had
about decided that he wouldn't make
the trip North.' Then you folks got
busy with telegrams to the San Fran
cisco police.' O'Brien busied himself,
called Kruvosky into conference and
the latter agreed that he would make
the trip.
Frankle Farren may be able to with
stand punches In the ring but there are
other things that get his goat. He had
to take his "shot in the arm" on Mon
day last. It was too much of a blow
and the pride of all the lightweights
keeled over. He was out for a full
five minutes and even after he re
gained consciousness was more or less
'First time I was ever out for so
long," he remarked to the Navy sur

Swimming the Golden Gate Is get
ting to be quite a commonplace affair.
The Dolphin Swimming and Boating
Club had its second annual swim of
the gate last Sunday. Twenty of the
members essayed the seven-eights mile
swim across the bay and 18 of them
finished. The test time was 31 minutes
which is some six minutes lower than
the time of last year and ten minutes
behind the best performance established
by Walter Pomeroy.
One of the contestants was a chap
named Cronln. Cronln Is 60 years old
but that didn't bother him in the least.
He used the breast stroke, and though
he moved up and down like a. bobbin,
he made progress and finished about
in the middle of the bunch.

pounds, which he took in 1911, that he

Los Angeles for seven years.

Describing the hooktnat, playing Jid
eaffinar of the fish. Mrs. Vail said:
"Oh! it was a beautiful fish. It
fought as hard as a 60-pound tuna, and
made three complete leaps, showing
gold, . purple, silver and many' other
colors as he came out of .the water each
time! ...-.,
"We were trolling for marlin sword
fish and never thought about dolphin
until it made a leap for the flying fish
on the kite line and I hooked it.
"Each time it came" to the surface It
looked so graceful and beautiful tht
I almost wished it would escape.
"It made several long runs and then
disappeared like a tuna, but came up
much more quickly and spectacularly,
I fought it for 20 minutes before Cap
tain Goulding could get hold of the
leader to gaif it. -

The American trotter Is the utility
horse of the world. His even tempera
ment, vigor, soundness,, courage and
size equip him for any place where a
horse can be used or for any emergency
where a change of equipment must Be
made at a moment's notice. The trot
ter can do any kind of work on A
farm. In the woods, on the road, race
track or battle Held from whirling a
limber into position on the firing line
to carrying a General In a review.
While the pasterns of the trotter may
not be as long and springy as the gal
loper's and their forehand may not suit
the critical, as a horse the trotter is up
to any weight and is as sure footed on
a shell-torn field as any hunter that
ever raced across country or took -timber
in a steeple chase.
In a recent interview a member of
the French High Commission set forth
how the farmers in France about 40
years ago began using trotting' stal
lions to cross on their mares. After
i0 years the cavalry officials decided
that they . were not producing what
the service demanded. These officials
then took up the thoroughbred and
fixed their standard on the lines of
the IriRh hunter. Also in order to
make-the change effective they offered
liberal premiums at fairs for f6als that
were by thoroughbred sires or out of
thoroughbred mares. This was a clever
way to bring the farmers over to their
viewpoint, as if a breeder could not
show at the fairs he was almqpt barred
from the market.
Furthermore anyone who is familiar
with the trotting families of KrSnice
could scarcely blame the cavalry of
ficers for making the change. The
Percheron was the first French trot
ter and when M. W. Dunham began
Importing tliem to the United States
he laid special stress on their trotting
records, although at that time the breed
was being shifted from the track and
road to the heavy harness of the draft
Major McKinnon, a field artilleryman
In "the Canadian army since the be
ginning of the war and a horseman of
note,, wrote me from France last
March that his command had a num-.
ber of Canadian and American-breu
trotting horses in the service and that
in his opinion the trotting bred horse
was very much superior to the thor
oughbred for war purposes, the latter
being too nervous and excitable. This
testimony from the battlefield" speaks
volumes for the trotter, while It Is
also known that a horse from an estab
lished breed is more desirable for any
purpose and can be bred more uni
formly than a half bred, which is very
apt to be front end galloper and hind .
end farmhorse, or vice versa.
The thoroughbred horse is the sport
ing horse of the world. The 'breed was
established for racing and has been
maintained for that purpose In En&jland
and other countries since the days of
Charles II, who was restored to the
throne in 1660. Certain strains have at
times thrown out -"sports" that have
shown other qualities which were in
tensified and developed by clever
breeders who established saddlers.
hunters, coachers and the trotter. Mes
senger being the foundation stone in

These "sports" csme from the thor
oughbred-' family before the breed was
thoroughly established and carried with
them the characteristics of an ancestor
whose form or way of going came to
the surface after a lapse of years. The
day, however, has gone by when a cross
of thoroughbred blood can improve any
of these families unless it is burled by
top crosses of the breed with which it
is blended.
