gram of the Winter Olympic
Games, February 11 to 19, need
not expect to see " half a dozen
skeletons clacking along in grim
contest, but what they will see is
just as thrilling.
In the language of Swiss Win
ter sports, a skeleton is a light,
flexible sled made of steel which
dashes with its crew over a peril
ous course at 70 to 80 miles an
hour. The skeleton races consti
tute an Olympic event this year
for the first time.
Cresta Run, the famous tobog
gan course constructed here by
English sportsmen. Is the scene
of the races. It is 3.750 feet long
and yet the races are over in a
minute or less. The race is not
always to the swift, but more of
ten to the courageous skillful and
strong for steering a sled going
70 miles an hour requires great
The race course is an ice-fluting
built with extreme exactness,

NEW YORK, Jan. 21. Lean

Nothing short of a miracle will
wrest from the hands of the New
xork Yankees the monopoly they
now hold on baseball Interest here
in the big town.
The prestige the Giants have
held through the years of Mc
Q raw's reign has been knocked in
to a cocked hat through the fail
ure of McGraw or"-Stoneham or
both to handle the Hornsby situ
ation adroitly, not to say firmly.

now left without a counter attrac
tion for Ruth is an incidental mat
ter compared to the devastation
caused in the ranks of the Giants
over the partial wrecking of the
team and the internal strift re
vealed by the Hornsby deal.
In other words John McGraw,
at a time when his baseball acu
men and dynamic personality
should be coping with, the Yankee
menace, finds himself under a
cloud .because of the inability of
anyone aboard the Giant bark to
explain in lucid, logical fashion, a
deal that sent the greatest batter
and outstanding star of the Na
tional league to a tail-end team
for the good of the team."
"The good of the team" will not
fill a gap in the infield or improve
the battlfig strength of the team.
The inside story of the trade has
not been told.
This statement le not -meant to
cast any reflections on the char
acter or Integrity of any of the
men involved. But it can be said
definitely that the reason for the
shift was not a question of author
ity. Tou can bank on that.
Benny Leonard, lightweight
champion and Thespian, has stolen
Gene Tanney's stuff.
Not that he intends to fight Jack
Dempsey two or three times, but
he has gone in for literature and
