BY W. H. G OTHER.
The 45th oer.es of the Grand Circuit
was completed at Atlanta. Ga.. Satur
day. October 19. Thirteen meetings
were given during the 15 weteks and the
contests at each compared favorabl
with any that preceded them. Th
gradual reduction of the race records
also shows that the flight of speed was
maintained in the fast classes all th
way down the line, although none of
them equaled -the showing at Toledo,
where Miss Harris M. and Single G.
paced the only three-heat race on rec
ord in which each of the miles were
below two minutes.
At this meeting Esperanza. won an
event in which a new six-heat race
' record was made. She also won a heat
at Lexington in the Transylvania i
which Binland was returned as th
winner of the fastest four-heat race on
record. Lu Princeton, chaimpion trot
ter of the year, also made three world
records by reducing the two-heat rec
ord for stallions in his victories at
North Randall and Hartford, where he
won the free-for-all before 60.000 peo
pie. and at Atlanta, where he made
iew three-heat race record for stal
lions when he defeated St. Frisco,
Murphy Takes Fast Pare.
The epidemic which cut the Lexington
meeting from ten to seven days caused
a number of owners to ship home from
that point instead of going to Atlanta.
Murphy, Cox. Geers, Stout and Me
diation remained in line and, with
few others, completed the list of start
ers in the 15 light-harness races, which.
with a series of running events, com
pleted the six-day programme at the
Southeastern Fair. The returns for the
week show that there were but 24
trotters and 17 pacers started at At
lanta for $19,200 in premiums and 16
of them took the word in two events..
The summaries also show that every
horse that darted won money. Murphy
opened the meeting by winning the fast
pace with Directum J. in 2:0314. it be
ing the 11th victory placed to the credit
of that horse during the season. He
also won two races with Ante Guy, the
2-year-old event, with Dorothy Day and
the free-for-all with Miss Harris -M.
who placed the track record at 2 min
utes in 1917.

GAME NO. 1024. "Ruy Lopez."
Plavcd In the third round between J. S.
Morrison of Toronto, the Canadian cham
pion, and Edward Lasker of Chicago in
the recent championship tournament. One
of the best games played. Score from the
write notes calling us "barbarians.'
Quite naturally a lot of people
wanted to know something about the
trench gun. Quite a number of writers
have written a lot about the gun.
: We'll add to the lot and try to give
every bit of information about the
shotgun that is worthy of publication
It is the good old short-barrel shot
gun that was the greatest peacemaker
in the early days of the West and
Southwest converted into a formidable
weapon of war.
Three-score years ago it was the
handy piece of the sheriffs who hunted
the outlaws, prison guards, express
messengers and stage coach guards,
and it did yeoman service.
When America took a hand in the
war a Georgia engineer by the name of
Eagor began ruminating on ways to
stop the Hun. His ruminations brought
him to the discarded weapon of the
days .of mushroom mining towns.
Old Riot Gun Is Adopted.
He suggested the utilization of the
short-barrel shotgun to the War De
partment and the suggestion met with
favor. The improved Winchester riot
gun, 1897 model, six shot, hand operat
ed, single-barrel pump shotgun was ex
amined and found worthy.
But there was one problem to be met.
That was the placing, of the bayonet.
The barrel of the gun was quite thin
and did not offer much support for a
bayonet. ' This is where Yankee inge
nuity asserted itself and iltade the gun
the deadliest short-range weapon ever
conceived or used by man.
The weakness of the barrel was
overcome by providing an outer steel
coat, or jacket, which is perforated and
held a short distance away from the
barrel proper and forms an air cham
ber that acts as a cooling jacket. To
this reinforced jacket is the bayonet ,
This jacket prevents the scorching !
of the shooter's hands and permits
rapid fire. The magazine holds five
shells and there is one shell in the
chamber, making it capable of firing
six shots as rapidly as one can pull
the trigger and work the pump handle.
This we might assert is mighty fast
when in the hands of a trapshooter.
Fifty Shots Fired In Minute.
These shells contain 3 drams of
smokeless powder, 00 buckshot load,
nine pellets to each cartridge, each pel
let about the size of a ,32-caliber bul
let. It is possible for one man shoot- f
ing, and others loading for him, to
fire 60 cartridges a minute, which
means 450 slugs, a veritable shower of
lead, would be sprayed over a 100-yard
sector. With hundreds of these guns
in use one can imagine the result.
No column of troops could stand at
close range before a line of men armed
with trench shotguns. In the past
these guns have cowed mobs and upset
mass formations. It is unwise to
stand in front of them especially
when they are in the hands of one
who might pull the trigger.
lhe gun weighs 7 pounds and the
bayonet Vz pounds. It is the 12-gauge
pattern, with barrels 20 inches, long
made from rolled steel, cylinder bored.
The bayonet can be removed and used
for "close-up" fighting. A sling is
attached to .the gun, the same as to
the rifle, so that it may be thrown over
An idea of the effectiveness of the
gun is shown in these tests on a two-
inch pine board. At 50 yards the pel
lets wormed their way. into the wood
inches. At 75 yards the shot went
in inch and at 100 yards the shot
went in 4 inch.
When General Pershing requested
the shotguns we are of the opinion that
the idea was to try and keep Fritz at
home in the evenings. Thousands were
supplied and these in the hands of men
who could use them not only have kept
Fritz at home nights but have kept
him sleepless more than one night.
A 111 Sot Replace Rifle.
The shotguns are more effective than
rifles for sentries. The guns will not
replace the rifle in warfare nor will
they perform the functions of'a ma
chine gun. It is purely an emergency
weapon which has done all that it was
intended to do and some more.
Firing from the hip, holding back
the trigger and pumping the forehand,
the shooter can lay-down a perfect bar
rage in front of him that will be ef
fective for more than 100 yards; This
gives an idea of the value of the gun
in the hands of sentries. l carries
more terrors into the hearts of the
enemy than any other instrument of
destruction that has been used.
The only umbrella that, will assist
anyone when the trench shotgun is
showering pellets over the universe is j
an armored tank. i
The guns are mainly in the hands of I
trapshooters, men who learned to shoot
at clay targets at the gun club. Trap
shooters are sportsmen and have used
the guns to delfect and explode hand
grenades thrown by the enemy.
Hand grenades explode four seconas
after they are thrown and if they are
missed by the shooter he pays for the
miss with his life. The compactness
of the shot will check the grenade and
cause it to explode near me enemy
trench, which is fatal to the thrower.

Intake Trophy and W alter A. Ooss.
The famous Fiske tennis cham
J pionship cup, which Walter A.
Goss won for the third time on
July 27, 191S, thus acquiring per-
manent ownership of the trophy,
has been found and has arrived
1 from San Francisco.
' The cup had mysteriously dis-
appeared when the time for pres-
entation came at the close of last
i Summer's tournament. . The last
' previous winner of the trophy
1 was Clyde Curley, of San Fran
cisco. Curley was in the service
and no one knew what he had
done with it.
Mr. Goss found himself in the
"position of having competed for
years for the trophy, only to have
it slip through his fingers after
he had won it. His friends re
garded it is a prime joke and j
teased him at great length.
But the cup has come up from
somewhere. Sir. Goss knows 4
nothing about where it was. He f
received a notice that it was be- t
ing forwarded to him from San ,
Francisco. And he stopped his ,
campaign to enroll school chil- ,
dren in the "Victory" campaign f
just long enough to give three t
cheers and a tiger. J
Mr. Goss Is further elated over
the receipt of a letter of congrat
ulation from Colonel Walter L
Fiske, U. S. A., retired, who pre
sented the trophy to Oregon ten
nis players in 1S89. Colonel Fiske
is now in Washington, D. C.
The conditions of the presenta
tion were that the bowl should
remain subject to contest uutil
one player won it three times. I
Mr. Goss won it in 1900, 1906 and ,
1918. The only other person who
won It twice, Mr. Goss says. Is J
General Walter A. Bethel, now on t
General Pershing's staff in J
France. Many famous players ,
have acquired title to it for one, 4
year, but lost the trophy during
the next season. Names of previ- t
out owners are inscribed on the -1
sides of the cup. I
CNIVERSITY OF OREGON, Eugene,
Oct. 26. (Special.) Dean H. Walker,
graduate manager of the University of
Oregon student body, and one of the
best-known athletic directors in the
Northwest, left yesterday on his way
to the Artillery Officers' School at Camp
Zachary Taylor. Ky. Walker has been
serving as graduate manager 01 ine
university since last June, when he suc
ceeded A. R. Tiffany, as well as being
the head of the athletic department
since the resignation of Hugo Bezdek
Walker won his fame on the foot
ball field of Oregon and during his four
years here he carved a place in the
gridiron history of the institution that
few have equaled and none have ex
celled. Walker came to the university
after having played two years on the
high school team of Independence and
two years for the Columbia University,
of Portland. It was while playing for
the latter school, during the season xf
1908, that he first attracted especial at-I
tention, when he scored the firs
touchdown that had been scored against
the Portland Academy team in seven
Walker entered Oregon in 1909 and
made the varsity team his freshman
year. During his senior year, when he
piloted the Oregon eleven, the varsity
backneld was made up of Anse Cor
nell, Johnny Parsons, Cary Fenton and
Walker. It was this team of 1913 that
beat O. A. C. at Albany by the score oZ
3 to 0.
Walker was an "O" man in two major
sports, football and basketball, and ws
also a me"mber of the Order of the
Blanket,, which is conferred on a player
who has served four years on the
In basketball and football Walker
served as captain of the team during
his senior year. He was a member .f
the Sigma Nu Fraternity and a Friar,
as well as being president of his junior
class and a member of the student
council and athletic board.
After graduating from the university
in 1913 Walker engaged in business in
his home town of Independence. Re
turning to the university in 1914 he
served as graduate manager and coach
of the freshman football team.
Walker's resignation was not ac
cepted by the university athletic coun
cil, but he was granted a leave of
absence for the duration, of the war.
Charles (Shy) Huntington, coach of the
varsity football squad, has been ap
pointed graduate manager during
NEW YORK, Oct. 26. The annual
meeting of the Amateur Athletic Union,
to be held in Philadelphia on November
17 and 18, promises to be one of the
most momentous in the history of the
organization. Questions having to do
with the readjustment of track and
field athletics after the war and prob
lems arising from the present conflict
will be laid before the delegates for
their consideration and decision. Their
verdict will have far-reaching effects
and the various officers and other rep
resentatives of the union are collecting
data in order to be prepared to meet
these issues squarely and fairly.
Among the subjects that are to be
considered are resolutions barring from
all National championship games ath
letes of foreign affiliations and the
status of an athlete after the war, who.
during the hostilities, occupied a posi
tion as coach, instructor or physical
director at a cantonment or with the
service units abroad. The question of
alloting the various championship meets
at this meeting instead of later in the
season will also come up for decision.
Of these the most important is un
doubtedly the one bearing on the ama
teur status of the athlete who during
the war has accepted pay for acting in
the capacity of instructor or recreation
director at a service camp. Under nor
mal conditions such action would im
mediately disqualify and professional
ize such athlete. In the present cir
cumstances, however, such action bears
an entirely different aspect, the work
in many cases being carried on for
patriotic reasons and at a heavy finan
cial loss, as well as at the expense of
broken home ties. As a result it is
confidently expected that the following
resolution introduced to cover this con
tingency will be quickly adopted:
"That in accepting such positions
many have done so at a great sacrifice,
leaving their homes, families, business,
positions, etc., to go far from home or
over the seas, feeling that in this way
they could be useful in helping to Win
"Be it therefore resolved that no per
son who shall have been eligible to
compete as an amateur at the begin
ning of the war shall be considered as
having forfeited his amateur status by
accepting a position such as mentioned
above unless he shall continue in said
employment after the war is over."
The matter of awarding the various
championship events in the branches of
sport "under the jurisdiction of the A. A.
U. at this meeting is more or less of an
innovation and the success of the plan
will depend upon the number of appli
cations received from the different as
sociations and individual clubs. Some
39 championship competitions are
scheduled for awara and it" is hoped
that a majority of these can be placed
at this meeting. It is not likfily that
specific dates will be fixed for the con
tests, but a seasonal range will be fixed
in each case and the club securing the
event will be permitted to name the
day or days upon which it would be
convenient to hold the competition
within the range stated.

Italian Tells Tale to Police, Who

laborer, was found ded in bed early
one morning by Captain Maurice Han
non .and several detectives of the
Elizabeth-street station in a loom he
occupied t.t 164 Mott street. There
was a deep wound in nis temple.
According to the police, a man who
described himself as Sabastiano Volpe,
20 years old, a laborer, and who said
he was a roommate of Ippolitissimo,
called at the Elizabeth-street station
and stated that, while he was sleeping
in the same bed with the other man,
two men enteref. the room by wy.of
the fire escape. He and his roommate
were awakened, he said, and ordered by
the two men to throw up their hands.
Both the men had revolvers, he said.
The men then took from each of them
$150, which they had tied in a hand
kerchief around their legs.
Ippolitissimo, Volpe said, pleaded
with one of the men not to take his
savings, whereupon the man struck his
roommate on the head. Ippolitissimo,
as a result of the blow, fell upon the
bed. Volpe said the men ordered him
out on thj fire escape sind then left.
