CHEHALIS. Wash, Aug. 16. (Sps
eiai.) The IS1 race meet at the
Southwest Washington fair, which will
open next Monday for the week of Au
gust l?-;3. inclusive, bids fair to be
one of the greatest attractions ever
seen in the i'acific northwest.
It is telling the truth without dis
count to state that all the fastest
horses on the Pacific coast and in the
northwest are now on the local fair I
grounds, many of them having been in I
training here for several weeks past.
The fact that the track at the south
west Washington grounds is one of the
i fastest half. mile ovals in the United
States has been demonstrated time and
again. Furthermore, since the race
programme that will be put on here is
the opening of the fall race season on
the North Pacific Racing Association
circuit, it gives horsemen a most op
portune occasion to test out their anl-

Every event has been far more than
filled and in the 2:19 pace there is a
classy list of IS entries. In the 2:25
pace there are 14 entries, while the
2:14 pace has attracted a list of 10
horses. In addition to the sulky races
each day there will be two running
vents and there are lots of classy ani

exodus to the majors seems to have
been via the Oakland institution.
In 1910 he was standing them all on

semi-pros one sunny afternoon.
This performance was enough to re
move him from deferred classification
and his name was soon found along
side of Connie Mack's on an Athletic
contract. The next year he was sent
to Denver and burned up the Western
league with a pitching average of .710.
Recalled by Boston he showed every
thing in the world when the Sox went
into spring training the following sea
son and won a home with the Boston
fans by hurling 42 games for the Hub
boys. His average was not so good, but
his willingness for work was amazing.
And then it happened. Along came
1914. The old grads and profs at Har
vard are talking about it yet.
Thirty-five times he was sent to the
mound with only five defeats charged
against him for the season. And four
of these by a score of 1 to 0. His aver
age of .792 made that year still stands
unscratched. Mathewson is the only
man in either big league who topped it,
with a percentage of .806 in 1909. But
Big Six is no longer an active twirler.-
Not only did Leonard carve a niche
for himself in the hall of averages, but
in the same year allowed his opponents
to score the meaeely average of 1.01
runs per game. This masterful per
formance through 35 hard-fought games
remains one of the most sensational
achievements in baseball.
In 1915 the Red Sox again won the
pennant and in the world series Leon
ard had the distinction of trimming
the great Alexander in a mound duel
at Philadelphia. The following year he
stepped into the calcium by turning
back St. Louis without a hit or a run
and in 1917 gave the same kind of a
deal to Detroit. This is the only case
where a big league pitcher has hung
up a no-hit-no-run game in two con
Along with Duffy Lewis he was sold
this year to the New York Yankees, but
preferred picking raisins in Fresno to
pitching ball in Gotham and auto
matically joined the holdout guild.
Hughey Jennings got after him and
with the Tigers now on the edge of
first place Leonard's twirling has more
than played its part.

and Harry writes he lost the game and
would like to know if there is any draw lor
white after the exchange 2-11.
Did you ever see the cut that Busby put
up for Barker to spring on Martins in their
match? If not It Is well worth looking at.
for it Is one of the neatest thin en you ever
saw and worth knowing, for if properly met
it leads up to some of the finest end play
as cmji he found anywhere, for the whites
oiav with two men down and yet force a
draw and would win if blacks should vary i
a single step. It cornea from the "Alma."

Antwerp, has drawn up its rowing pro

13 metres (4 '0 feet).
The dates lectert for the regatta are

Inability to Have Players Organize
and Get Suitable Mounts Hin
ders Spring Plans.
HEMPSTEAD, L. I., Aue- 16. (Spe
cial.) Word has been received here
that in all likelihood there will be no
international polo game in England
next spring, owing to the inability of
the English players to organize and
purchase suitable mounts.
Henry ll Herbert, the chairman of
the National Polo association, said to
day that it was generally understood
among the members of the Burlingham
club of England, thar. a challenge
would not be sent unless it was pos
sible with them to take up the situa
tion. The large number of British
players who recently returned from the
war have not as yet had time to adjust
their affairs, and the possible post
ponement of the match is greatly due
to conditions in England not being
favorable for international competition
at this time.
With two available teams to repre
sent the United States and all players
and mounts In perfect condition there
were high hopes for the success of the
team that would be selected by the
Polo association to be sent to England.
The special match played at Meadow
Brook between teams representing the
Meadow Brook and Rocklway Hunting
clubs developed several possibilities for
international players. Rockaway won
the match, and. according to experts
the team to be selected would be Louis
E. Stoddard as No. 1, Earl W. Hopping
as No. 2. Malcolm Stevenson as No. 3,
and Devereaux Milburn, member of for
mer international teams, as back. Mil
burn represents the Meadow Brook
club and the other players rode under
the colors of .the Rockaway Hunting
BY HARRT EDDAS.
Miss Betty Grimes of the Minneapolis
Athletic club is providing the sensation
in fancy diving circles of the country.
On August 2 at Detroit she walked
away with the Central Amateur Ath
letic diving title by defeating Miss
Vonnie Malcolmson of the Detroit
Athletic club, and agai non Saturday
last at Chicago won the National A. A.
U. high diving title. Miss Malcolmson
was one of Miss Payne's main con
tenders in the national fancy diving at
Detroit in March, and it was a surprise
to local fans that Miss Grimes won
the event at Detroit. Miss Grimes is also
a swimmer of note and last year car
ried off many of the Central association
titles. She represented the Central as
sociation at the national 50-yard and
220-yard in San Francisco in March.
On account of some misunderstanding
she failed to enter the national 220. but
in the 60-yard she placed second, the
event being won by Miss Bessie Ryan of
Philadelphia by about two feet. On her
way home Miss Grimes stopped in Port
land, at the solicitation of the writer,
and was entertained by Mrs. Jack Cody
and Thelma Payne. Miss Grimes and
Miss Charlotte Boyle of New York are
to appear In San Francisco next month
and it is possible that the two may ap
pear in exihibition or competition in
Portland the latter- part of September.
The victory of Miss Ethelda Bllebtrey
of the New JTork Women's Swimming
association in the three-mile swim at
Philadelphia a week ago calls attention
once again to the remarkable physical
benefits to be derived from swimming.
Fourteen months ago when Miss Blieb
trey, the 17-year-old girl, took up train-
ing for competitive swimming she was
a weakling, actually slightly crippled
with curvature of the spine and today
she Is healthy and a robust specimen
of young womanhood.
The next event of importance for the '
women of the swimming world is the
national mile for women to be held at
Ocean Park, Cal., some time next month
The latest entrants who assure a meet
of great interest and cause the fans to
look for new records are Mrs. Frances
Cowells Schroth of San Francisco and
Mrs. Claire Galligan-Finney, formerly
of New York and now of Los Angeles.
The national high diving champion
ships for men will be held at Rye Beach,
New York on August 30. Along with
the meet will be held the usual number
of distance races to which the stars of
the east, both men and women, will be
drawn. Louis J. Balbach of the Mult
nomah club, who held the high diving
championships in 1915, may be Mult
nomah's representative at this meet.
Balbach, who has just returned to town
after two years at the University of
California, is going to New Y'ork next
month to enroll at Columbia university.
It is planned to have him leave a little
in advance so that he may represent
the club In this diving event. As a
diver Balbach has long ranked as the
best not only on the coast but through
out the couJitry and would put up a
hard fight against any other divers en
tered. It is expected that his entry
will go forward in the next week.
Misses Thelma Payne, Virginia Pem
brooke and Beatrice Hawkins leave
this evening for Eugene, where they
will embark upon a canoeing trip down
the river to Portland. It Is planned that -the
girls spend a week on the trip, ar
riving in Portland some time next Sun
Mrs. Constance Meyers, former na
tional diving champion and present far
western diving star, is to appear in an
exhibition diving event at Victoria,
B. C, on September 22 for the Prince of
Wales. One or more of the other Mult
nomah diving girls will accompany her.
- One thing commendable of Elmo
Lincoln. He has good common sense.
He waited until Jack Dempsey was in
Chicago before challenging him.
