AMKRICAN LKAQUE. RANK.- -RANK.- 1W7. If. 0. L 1KI7. 1W4J. O.L In both the National and American league last season mora batters fell off In their atlclc work than g-.aliipd. In the National league fifty-two gained In pointa and fifty-nine took a drop. In the Amer ican league only forty-five gained, whereae seventy-one had a slump. It Is plain, there fore, that the National leaguers held up to their work better than the hitters of the younger base bail organization. It also Is plain In both leagues that the batsmen are not holding their own In their struggle with the pitchers, that the reverse of headway Is being made by the batters li the cease less duel with the occupants of the box for the upper hand, a duel which Is one of the salient phaaea of the national game. There la In each of the big leagues one batter who may be said to be In a class by himself. One Is Wagner of the Na tional league, the other Cobb of the Amer ican league. There are no battera quite of the grade of these two exceptional per formers with the locust wand, and of the two Wagner Is the greater. He Is again at the top. and If his gain this season was amall It was because his batting of the previous year was about as high In per centage as It Is humanly possible for a player to go. Cobb, In the American league, Tanked second this year, but the man who ranked ahead of him did not piny In nearly as many games and was not at the bat often enough to go against the same law of chance, the likelihood of lisvlnjr his average pulled down, as Cobb WHS. The figures show some pronounced rises and falls. Some of these were built on subfrtttnee and consequently - were earned. Others were more Indicative of a freak gain, belonging to men who were At the bat comparatively Infrequently and for that reason would Jump far ahead by making a few more base hits than in the previous ytar. Take such batters as Larry Doyle, Kitty Hransfleld, Johnny Evers, Hans Ix beit and Al Brldwell, In the National Hague, and their gains represent real Im provement In stick work, for they were In the gHma duy in and day out. The same Is truu of Dulehanty, lliomphlll and Btovall, In the American league. In the National league the best gain among the every day players was made by BianBt'leld, who advanced 71 points over hl8 1M furm. It Is a tribute to John McOraw's Judgment the way Bradwell Improved In lils hitting. He was 67 points better than In 19(i7 and became not only a first class but a timely batter. One of the best natural hitters in the country, Sherwood Magee of the Phlladelphlans, slumped appreciably, but that probably represents only a tem porary decline. Three of the players whom McGraw traded last winter to Boston Browne. Bowerthan and McQann all fell off In their batting, as did Shannon, who was disposed of to Pittsburg. For that matter so did Tenney, who was had from Boston In the trade. v The biggest gain In the National league was made by Lew Moren, the Philadelphia pitcher, who Jumped forward 164 points The biggest loss fell to Sammy Strang 158 points but Strang played only a few games In the big league last season before lie was released to Baltimore and doubt less would have done better had he had more opportunity. Wlltse of the New Yorks was another pitcher who was much better with the ash this year than last He boosted his average 102 points. Fer guson, the Boston pitcher. Improved a great deal and largely because he had more opportunity to go to the bat than he had when with the New York club. Frank Chance, a good batter season In and seoson out, fell from seventh to twen tli'th place. Another classy batter who dropped, and dropped far, was Mike Mitchell of the Clnclnnatis, who ranked eighth In 1907 and seventy-seventh In 1908. McLean of the same team had a big tumble, too. Brldwell moved up from eighty-fifth to tenth place, Doyle from thirty-sixth to third. Hransfleld. from seventieth to fourth, livers from fifty-fifth to fifth and Lobert from sixty-third to sixth. Tommy !ach fell from fourth to thirty-first and Beaumont from third to twenty-third. Chic Fiaser finished In the same place both ' years. 146th. The blageat gsln In the American league was made by Ira Thomas, the catcher. When with the Highlanders season before y last he ranked 109th, but with the De troit the last season he climbed up to sixth place and advanced 115 numbers, Kd Klllian. the Detroit pitcher, took a big tumble. His average was I'O points less than In 1907, and he dropped from fifth to 150th place. Pitcher Bill Donovan of the same team also took a long shoot down the batting toboggan. Thlelman, the Cleveland and Boston pitcher, soared to ' the extent of 101 points and ranked sev enth last season to lC3d for the season be fore. The once peerless hitter, Lajole, was In fifteenth place among the 1908 batters, the lowest he has been since he became a major leaguer. That was six places lower than he was the year before, and his average shrank ten points. Jim Delehanty of the Wsshingtons advanced from nine teenth to third place and added thlrty n I no points to his percentage. The doughty Sam Crawford was fourth last season, fourth the year before and lost four pointa Ty Cobb lost sixteen. He.nphlll Improved lila position by thirty-six notches and added thirty-six points to his batting average'. ' l!Ile Keeler made a gain over his 1907 average, though still far below his normal percentages when he was In his prime. It will be noticed In both leagues that there are considerably more gains than losses among the batters who rank near the top. The deduction is that though the poorer battera are Buffering, the good ones are holding their own against the pitching. The following tablea show the ranking of the batters In 1907 and 1908 and the game and losses In points: NATIONAL LKAQCE. 14 Cohh J.

Hays the Science lias ?Cot Im proved. John I Sullivan Is always ready to talk of the game which made him famous. The big fellow Is touring the west with Jake Kllratn and the other day somebody asked him whether he thought that boxing hod Improved. Said Sullivan: "Boxing has not improved as an art In years, though there were not as many boxers fifteen years ago as now. It Is an evident fact that when I took up boxing I put It on a plane that It now maintains. I put It in a shape so that they could make some money out of it both the man agers and the fighters. Boxing has gone ahead In this country, but has deteriorated In Kngland. They have not had a real champion, heavyweight or lightweight. In England In a long time, Mitchell was the last champion they had over there. Jem Mace, Hke myself, was champion both In this country and In England In his day. He Is still alive, which goes to ahow that boxers, or fighters If you prefer the term, live to a good old age. Mace la 74 years of age and well and hearty today. "On what lines was the boxing different fifteen years ago? More foot racing? The difference In the style of fighting? Well, In boxing fifteen years ago they UBed to fight for very small prises. The boxing prize was 11,000 for an International cham pionship, or 'X0 in English money. Bayers and Heenan fought In 1S60 on the 7th day of April, at FarnsboroUgh, for $1,000 a side for the International championship of the world. Spectators broke into the ring and the referee declared It no contest. "Boxing l-.as not improved any! The lightweight championship of twenty years ago was fought for by such men as Billy Edwards, Arthur Chambers, Tim Collins, Mullins and Patsy Sheppard. Now they could fight all the lightweights we have today and beat them easily. It seems toduy that the lightweights have the honors In fighting. It Is a fact that more lightweight fights have been put In the ring for the last four years than any other clnsa. "A great many people Imagine or think that if a man Is a boxer or fighter he has got to be a tough or an ugly mug, but such Is not the case. A boxer or a fighter oan be as much of a gentleman as the banker, broker, physician or merchant. "Now I have always advocated boxing as a clean, manly, healthy exercise. More so than foot ball, wrestling or race riding. There la never a time that a Jockey mounts a horse In a running race that he doesn't take his life In his hands. There have been fewer fatalities In the prize ring than among foot ball players and jockeys. Sta tistics will prove this In 1906. from Octo ber 1 to December 1, during the foot ball season nineteen young men were killed and nobody knows how many were injured for life. "Every young man from 15 to 10 years of age should be taught the manly art of self-defense in order to protect himself against any rough or tough who might undertake to hold him up on the highway. Boxing develops not only physical endur ance, but also manly Instincts. It is not a brutal game and should be encouraged all over the I'nlted States. Contests with padded gloves are not prize fight such as were held with bare knuckles unrter the old London rules." -RANK - -RANK 1907. 1. O.L.i 107. 1 . O. L.

IOWA CITV. Ia., Dec. 6. (Special.) Many Iowa coaclxs will be retained by in stitutions tn this Btate for the 19 foot ball season according to present indications, but the changes lu the coaching staffs of the Missouri Valley schools will be more numerous. Ames, with Clyde Williams, Drake with John L. Gilffith. Cornell with Finger and Coe with Bryant, are satisfied with the conditions which face them in the coach ing line and changes are unlikely. Grlnnell has had a system of annual changes and wnue Andrews, the Yale man, may bo back, most of the peuple outside of the school look for a change. Jack Ilolllster of Mornlngside, after a disastrous season seems to have come' into his own and he will probably retain his position another season. It Is probable that Mark fntiin will return to Iowa next fall. No decision will be mads by the Iowa Board in Con trol of Athletics until June and there ere many preoptions that reflection on the present athletic disasters will strengthen the former Chicago star In Iowa atliletl circles. Anung the Missouri Vulley schools there are chances for several changes. W. J Monllaw Is fighting a losing game at Mis souri so far as foot ball coaching Is con cemed, Cayou ends his contract at Wash Ington. thus leaving three of the schools. iMUKe, Anus and Kansas where condition seem likely to remain as they are. One Heine at a Time. One day while playing 5-year-old Kettle fell down the atepa and hurt hereelf. Her mother scolded Iht for being so c. rel.se, and the little one sobbed: "P-pleuse. mam.-na, d-dWt acold till I g-get through h-burtlng." The tests at Amherst conducted for the entering class present some Interesting re sults. They are conducted out of doora for as long a time as the weather permits. Varied after a time with long walks, soccer and outdoor basket ball, the men are kept In the air until It la extremely cold. Then they get their turn at gym nasium exercising. This work Is .required, and all the mem bers of the class have to take part In It By these methods full statistics can easily be got, and they form that basis for state ments that are made from time to time by the department of physical education at Amherst. The tests are made by means of three althletlc events the loo yard run, the running broad jump and putting the tyelve pound shot. Thee competitions were chorei aa showing the speed, strength of the legs, strength of the arms and abil ity to co-ordinate musculurly, which Is the chief requisite In sports. Physlclal training la required at Amherst for all classes ,for the first three years. Any man who wants to get hla degree must satisfy the physical director of his physical fitness. The fall work Is con ducted on the athletic field by way of an entrance examination. It shows the In structor what are the capabilities of hi men and what they most need, which Is hotter even than the entrance examination In studies. In running 100 yards a peiformance bet ter than 12 seconds is required before any points may bo scored. In the broad Jump 11 feet 8 Inches Is the lowest for which points may be counted. . For the shot put the minimum Is 18 feet 3 Inches. Marks of 100 per cent are awarded for running 100 yards In 10 seconds, clearing 20 feet In the broad Jump or putting the shot 43 feet The proportions do not appear to be very clear, because putting the shot that distance Is not eo good as running 100 yards In two-fifths worse than even time. There Is a good Comparison between the feats In the shot put and the broad jump. At tho first test this year it was found that the average time for running the dash was 13 seconds. The freshmen leaped on the average 15 feet 1 Inch. The shotput figured out 2t5 feet 6 Inches to the man. These performances are very much below what are to be, expected from freshmen whe have had any experience of athletics at all In their public schools and serve to show that the average freshman entering Amherst Is not very much developed In sports. However, as this category prob ably excludes the men who were trying for foot ball, and who necessarily would be better, It Is impossible to characterize them as standard performances, for the whole class. The Second Test. At the end of five weeks of training the same tests were repeated." The average time for running 100 yards had come down 1 teconds, to 12 seconds, the point at which scoring began. The broad Jump In creased on the average three Inches. The shotput made a gain of a foot on the aver oge. The scoring of eighteen feet In the shotput gives zero and each three inches Increase adds V per cent. For the broad Jump every Inch over 11 feet 8 Inches adds 1 per cent. On the basis of these percent age figures the first test of the class was 25.5 on a basis of 100 and the secend 29.9. i ne Dttiietln of the work sets forth: "The gains thus recorded are apparent at a glni.ee even for so short a period of train ing anS It should be said that In the second test the men ran against a very strong wind. The nature of this test cultivate, a plrlt of friendly rivalry which brings out the bfst ability of each man. Furthermore. a list of the ten best records Is posted and in striving to make the first ten each man unconsciously puts forth his best efforts. It Is an interesting fact that while In the first test only one man scored above 50 per cent In the second test nine men were above 60 per cent. Some of the Individual gains were great, some men more than doubling their records. It Is believed that an average gain of 4.4 per cent for only five weeks work Is enough incentive to continue this work. "It Is found that the men who have had the least training before entering college, and therefore the ones most In need cf :t, are the ones who make the greatest gains In their records. The natural athletes re quire no urging to work out of doora and so come to college better developed than the studiously Inclined. The tendency of these men, however, Is to specialize In the ever.t for which they are best fitted by nature, y This will tend to give them de velopment only along certain lines and not all around. The work at Amherst la ao divided aa to give the man the even de velopment which Is desired. "It la a source of satisfaction to note that the man who made the best record In each test was not the man who did the best In my one event, hut scored his points by general all round ability. The man who made the fastest time In the 100-yard run finished third In the first ten, the best bread jumper came in second and the man who made the record shotput was tenth. Thete facts would seem to point In favor of the even development Instead of allowing a man to specialize aeccrdlng to his tasles. "For some years statistics have been kept on the height, weight and lung capacity of the men thus training and the effects of the outdoor exercise and invigorating air have produced results which would seem Incredible were they not supported by the actual figures to prove them." Mlchlarnn Sirinas Bark. The athletic rulea at the I'nlverslty of Michigan recently were revised, ostensibly to ake the place of those of the confer ence, which Michigan repudiated more than a year ago. However, the new code of rules, looked at with some care, bears a great resemblance. to the regulations of the conference. In spirit If not In fact. The main variance from the conference rules Is that the retroactive clause of the three- year rule Is killed. That is to say, by the conference rules all athletes are limited to three years of varsity competition In sports did that rule was made to apply at the time It was passed to all men then In college. 8everal of Michigan's men would have been disqualified had the Wolverines remained in the conference and ao they gut out. Presumably it was believed that this three-yea? rule was a plot. By the end of the present academic year there will hardly be in Michigan a man who would have been barred from competition under the three-year rule at the time It was passed. Furthermore, Michigan now has returned in effect to a three-year rule, the aame aa all the others, with minor provlaos that do not affect any games that may be played with any except non-conference colleges. It looks very much from the terms of the new rulea that Michigan Is prepar ing to swing back Into the good old trace a. Here are the rules: "Except a below pr- -Ided. no student shall participate In igj.ollegiate athletics for more than - ! t! SB'S1 if ! Copyright 1908. Tbe House of Ruppenhsiner, Chicago.

"Exceptlona: 1. Playing on freshman teams shall not be counted In the three years allowed; 2, students affected by the retroactive feature of the three years' rule when adopted by the conference shall be allowed to compete a fourth year if otherwise eligible; 3, in view of the fact that the Intercollegiate Associ ation of Amateur Athletes of America (of which the University of Michigan is a member) allows competition for four years, members of teams. If otherwise eligible, may compete a fourth year at meetings under the direction of said as sociation, and, 4, in intercollegiate ath letic contests with colleges allowing par ticipation for four years, a fourth year shall be allowed members of the Uni versity of Michigan. "The foot ball team shall be allowed to atari preliminary training two weeks be fore college opens." There are not any very keen differ ences between thee regulations and what the conference provided and it ap pears very much as If within the next year or so Michigan could easily slip back and become a conference colleg.j without altering Its rules at all. That this Is what Is planned no one seems to be able to say. Cornell's Drill Hindrance. A very strong objection la made at Cornell by the system of drill for the first year and other men. Only a cer. tain small number may be excused from this drill for athletics and the objection la made that the drill kills the chancea of getting many men Interested in athletics. - 1 f - 4 - , r 4 Y I.
