that In the Intermediate ruua, the high

will sweep the board.

Loudon especially for the occautou.
Men who follow closely tho form of
the crack amateur athlete are al
ready trying to guess the makeup of
tho team that will represent the Unit

In London thla summer. It la generally
conceded that the bulk of tho team will
be made up of college men. Such waa
not the caae when Uncle Sam vent a
team to Athena In 1000, for the Athena
Olympiad waa held at a time mat
made It lmDoaalble for moat of the col

on account of their college work.

The boya who went to Athena In 1000
did well In fact, thoy beat the ath
letea of the world assembled in the rea

Tho makeup of the next Olympic
team will certainly be representative
of the United States, for it la a cer
tainty that every section of tho coun
try will furnish star athletes for the
team. Tho men will be picked at trial
games in tho oast and west, and this
method will give the team tho genuine
chomplona of the year.

record of 8 3-5 seconds held by Dan
Kelly. Owing to the fact that a slight
quartering wind was blowlug in his
favor the record may not be allowed

winter Rector broke the world's record
for the hundred yards In an Indoor

number, and It must be fairly admit
ted that bis game is still of the old
surpassing beauty of accoraplUhment
and that he atands head and shoulders
above bis fellows. Furthermore, be it
said that Larned Is not disposed to
shirk any responsibility that the Na
tlonal association may place upon him
at such a time, when tne gooa oi me

Of course tbe ranking ten or tne om-

for the cup team. Broadly speaking,
that select number was regarded as a
Joko In some respects when the list

Karl II. Behr, Raymond D. Little,

aro said to bo moat unlikely to make

that his son must confine himself to

duUes will permit of. LitUe has
grown more uncertain with years and
Is not to be reckoned with. Le Roy's
record last year is taken with a "grain
of salt," and be la far from having the
physique to stand any grueling match
es. Hobart is not likely to make tbe
team or to bo considered because of
bis antagonism to the governing body.
Of the others of the ten young Ed
win P. Lnrnedand Irving & Wright
are regarded as strong, 'and should ,
they round out their promise one or J
both may find a place. But, going be-,
yond the ten that were ranked, three
men William J. Clothier, Frederick 1
Alexander and Harold II. Hackett are i
receiving much consideration. The tall 1
Jhllndelphlan, Clothier, Is in line again 1
to get up to his best, If he can attain j
it He is receiving enthusiasm from ,
Lamed and is regarded as one of the
likeliest men of all.
As the matter stands, the officials are 1
drumming up the men of top flight, so !
that there Is likely to be more class on
the' American courts this year than in !
the past With the cup matches held J
over to August, there is opportunity j
for development, and, on the whole, !
the players are most cheerfully confl- j
dent as to the outcome.
Shirt Sal! Newest of Pitching Freaks. I
You've henrd about the knuckle ball,
Mathowson's fade away ball, the rise
ball, the splttet, the curve and end-:
less others, but the versatile twlrlers
have added still another to the list.
The latest discovery Is the shirt waist
ball. More properly it should' be call- j
d the "shirt", ball', for the garment !
generally termed "shirt waist" docs j
not figure In its delivery. The shirt
waist ball Is really oh!y a fast one '
shoulder high in Chicage: It Is used
only on hot days, for it is then that all j
the fans In the bleachers iu center j
field take off their coats. When they
do this there Is a straight white' line i
parallel with the shoulder of "the pitch
er and the batsman's eyes. When the
ball shoots toward him he cannot se
it because of the white shirts.
