Thla year. Tha Ithacan went down to
boaton to run over a course that wa
trance to them a of course, It was to
moat of the others but tha peculiarities
of tha running at Ithaca make these
avera" course In which there la much
road running always strange to the Cor
nelians. It waa to be noted that In the
first part of the race the Cornelllans were
not wall up. At the end of the first lap.
something under two miles, Tappan, who
eventually waa aecond, waa back in ninth
blace and lierna. tha champion, waa
Teaas Sarrlflrea Self.
Captain Young waa even further back.
but It waan't because the winner of the
r.8 race couldn't have been better placed.
It waa because ha waa coaching along the
othar Cornelllans, Brown and Fleming,
who ran sixth and eighth at the end.
Toung did not make an effort until well
along toward tour mllea and then ha came
to tha front for a time to force the pace
and to kill off tha weaker man of tha other
teams, who would feel the greater speed
most Just -at tbat time. Young ranged
back and forth along the line, keeping his
men together, and when the final spurt
cam naturally ba waa unable to come
along aa If ha had run tha race to suit
himself throughout.
This Is the sort of thing that counts
mora for a team than for a man's indi
vidual record. Possibly Cornell would
have won tha team prise anyway, even
If Capta'n Young hadn't devoted himself
to holding tha team together. But the
Cornel liana were worried by the absence
of Bean and Taylor, who were up near the
top In last year race and were respec
tively tha third and aecond men in fur
Cornell In 19U8. It waa feared that with
them out tha team might not ba good
enough to get first, and so Young decided
to-tak no chance.
Whether he could have beaten T. Berna
and Tappan la of course a question, but
It U certain ha gave hlmaelf no chance to
do It. by hanging back and coaching the
other along, running rather for hia team
than for himself.
It apeara that Cornell grows stronger
and stronger at thi sport aa tlm goes
on. In eleven race just on waa loat
to Cornell, and that time. If report la to
be believed, there waa soma trouble be
tween the) runner and Moakley. Tha
runner wantad to do thing their way and
Moakley wanted to do them hla Even
tually ba decided to give tha students free
rein to work out their plana aa they aaw
fit. And Cornell finished third thai year.
tha only time that ever the lihacans were
beaten. After that, a It waa befora that.
It was decided to let Moakley run the

It is recited that the recelpta for the

of Chicago won the final game and the
championship tonight, defeating George
Sutton of Chicago In the world' profes
alonal aerie at 18.1 balk line billiards, by
600 to 72, In the fourteenth Inning.
Demarcst won the bank and blanked.
Sutton made four and missed an easy one.
tiemarest took 47 and Sutton responded
with another blank. Button waa visibly
nervous and could not get down to hi
game. In the following Inning hi count of
21 was hi highest run of the game.
PemareM had to accept two xeros, but
took them unconcernedly and in his elgTrth
Inning began a slashing run of 117. H
played with what seemed reckless rapidity,
but the precision of his control showed In
the accuracy with which the balls tipped
In and out of balk In perfect position.
Sutton was never In the running there
after and Demarest won out with an un

ning. Tha score:

Foot Ball Team Out Here Not Think.
log of Breaking I p East Vp
t by Old Troablea.
NEW YORK, Dec. 4.-Whlle the eastern
foot ball adherents and enemies are re
viewing the controversies of 1V0S and talk
ing of reorganising, changing and perhaps
eliminating the great autumn sport, the
players In the middle-west are planning for
next season and speaking of raid Into
eastern camp and of game to decide the
championship of the United States. And
all thla enthusiasm Is the result of the
Michigan victories.
Foot ball prestige has been an un
questioned attribute of eastern col
leges for the last few years,, since the
conference dispute which hampered the
Wolverines One does not have to glance
far into the depths of foot ball history,
however, to remember days when th
corn-fed and wheat-farming youths came
from the prairies to the campus and rolled
up phenomenal foot ball scores. When the
eastern men saw some of those tallies they
used to wonder If Stagg and Yost dressed
their teams In track suits and coached
squads made up entirely of 440-yard cham
pions. At that time there was some
thought In the tnlnds of many that If cer
tain Intersection! games had been ar
ranged the eastern bleacherltes would have
believed that the Yale-IIarvard contest
waa an Interesting tradition.
At the close of thla season tha middle-
western college are a burs with foot ball
conjecture. The Michigan-Pennsylvania
and the Chicago-Cornell tie have loosed
rumor, and rumor runs amuck.
Coach Stagg of Chicago has announced
Invitations for games next season from
Pennsylvania, Brown and the Navy. Th
Cornell game haa not been scheduled, but
It Is a probability. Many followers of th
two colleges think that a Michlgan-Chlcagi
game will be arranged. As for Michigan
although the Notre Dame question still
smoulder, the Malse and Blue believe
that It team ar the best In that section
and it would like to know what would hap
pen tf a wr party went to the east nex
fail. All th credit of Michigan' victor!
ou wtnd-up this season Is given to Coach
Yost, and th "Hurry-l'p" man la the hai
of Ann Arbor. No one who follows th
game la apt to refute the opinion that
Yest deserve all the .laurels a coach can
receive for taking a raw lot of material
and building the team which Michigan
supported In the Michigan-Minnesota
game. The Wolverine player demon
strated that they knew where credit be
longs when thay carried Tost from Frank
Hug Field on their shoulders after defeat
ing th Red and Blue. He worked up a
new offense for the Minnesota contest and
then the successful coach gave the opinion
that talk pounded foot ball Into his green
recruits and hard work did th ret. N ev

Claiifi on South Field for All Stu
dent! Instead of Indoor.
flrat Trial af the Oatdar Work It
Barded ae dacrraafal, hat a Great
nifflrally la the l ack of
The outdoor work which th Columbia
gymnasium classes did on South field for
the first time this autumn brought out th it
hire Is not more than a quarter of th
room In that enclosure which Is needed
nd furthermore that there should be more
men employed qualified to help out the
nexperlrnced exercisers. These are the
conclusions reachid by Dr. George L. Mey
Ihn, professor of physical education at Co-
umbla, after a brief study of the ork
that the classes accomplished out of doors.
The plan followed this year marks sn
entirely new phase In physical education
at Columbia. It has been discussed for
some time whether It would be feasible.
to have the early part of the required
gymnasium work done out on South field
nstead of Indoors. .It was at the earnest
recommendation of James E. Sullivan, the
Amateur Athletic union man, that this was
eventually begun at Columbia. Mr. Sulli
van lives on West One Hundred and Four
teenth street. Just across the roadway from
ho field, and In Speeches made at Colum
bia and talks with officers and students of
the place he made known how It pained
him to see that big athletic field going all
to waste when It might well be made us
of for students not necessarily athletes.
"net your men out and let them fool
around In the open air doing things that
the athletes do," said Mr. Sullivan, "and
the first thing you know you'll have all
the athletes you want."
Amherst also had engaged In a rvstem
of outdoor work for the entering classes
and careful, systemlzed measurements
were made of all the performances done by
the men upon entrance and also at the
end of the term outdoors. These things
would be possible at Columbia If there
were a larger corps of workers. Even en
listing volunteers from the various classes,
It would not have been possible to write
down a book, after measuring, wrist the
various gymnasium class students ac
complished. For Instance, the work required an hour
from each man twice a week. Allowing
ten minutes for dressing and getting from
the gymnasium over to the field and some
time for leaving it arterward the students
got In about forty minutes or perhaps
forty-five minutes. That time was used
to give them diverse exercise. If thov
started In with Javelin throwing there was
later some exercise for the legs. Jumping
or running, it was an effort always to
assist In an equitable development.
Mny Are Interested.
The classes were large and divided Into
groups. At one and the same time the
field had on It small squads Duttina- the
hot, hurdling, broad Jumping, sprinting
ana mrowing the discus, for Instance. To
measure the distances covered or to time
tha runners would have been possible only
it mere were a very large squad of such
measures and timers and If the groups
measures and rirmers and If the groups
track of what each man did from dav to
day and to be prepared at qe end of the
season to give an account of this as well
as making physical examinations at the
start and at the and would. Dr. Meylan
saia, nave thrown upon the gymnasium de
partment a burden which It Is Incapable
of supporting.
For Instance, It takes two weeks to make
the physical examinations that are taken
at the close of each year. Allowing two
weeks at the beginning to examine the
men who are assigned to the outdoor work,
and two weeks again at the end of the out
door season, and then take In besides the
actual number of hours that the compila
tion and keeping of records would require,
would really take up so much time that
the other parts of the gymnasium work
could get no attention at all.
It Is urged, furthermore, that after the
few weeks of each autumn It would be im
possible to show much actual gain. If any,
In lungs, chest or muscles. The time spent
outdoors probably would show Its results
sometime later, and certainly not so Im
mediately. Dr. Meylan says that very
often the whole two years of gymnasium
work fall to Indicate any very great dif
That Is, a student measured when he
enters and also at the end of the sopho
more year the time when the prescribed
gymnasium work ends does not always
show a great gain In any particular. It
Is contended, then, that measurements at
the end of a few months would be less
significant as far as physical advance Is
concerned. It might be possible to show
that A leaped eight Inches further In
the broad Jump than he did when he en
tered, or that he covered the hurdles In
two-iirms or a second faster time, but
those things would be more strictly for
athletic and not gymnastic purposes.
At any event Dr. Meylan's present working-
force Is inadequate for the handling
or the statistics in that way. Added to
this I the smallness of the field. South
Field Is great enough to contain a quarter
mil track, but when the interclass foot
ball players, the soccer teams and the
regular track athletes are out, not to
mention the lawn tennis players, who use
the courts that fringe the field, and the
lacrosse men getting their fall practice, the
place 1 well enough crowded.
What Dr. Meylan wants 1 a playground;
that is the latest idea among the colleges,
and such of them as have th ground that
may be devoted to such ends are arranging
for playgrounds. Dr. Meylan's Idea la to
have a place where the non-athlete, the
man who wants to exercise for fun, or
ven the novice athlete, may go to do his
little bit. Very often. Dr. Meylan says,
ther 1 some man who would Ilk to try
some of the thing that the regular ath
letes do, but is deterred by his very in
experience, from going out as a member
of the regular athletic team. Furthermore
If he did lie probably would get only slight
attention because of his apparent green
nea. and If he did stick to it all by hlin
s If probably would have to unlearn much
after he finally did somthing to attract
the attention of the regular athletlo coach.
Oatdour Work Beat.
The actual outdoor work. Dr. Meylan
believes, has betn a good thing for the
men. Even If no statistics Were prepared
he believes the tuen have done better be
cause of the hour they spint out on the
field in the autumn. The character of th
work has been different, to be sure, but
U has been of a sort that rather haa en
couraged the student. For Instance, soma
of them, who. when they firat cam out
on th field, war unable to run comfort
ably even lt yard, at the end of th period
of outdoor work were reeling off halt mile
without distreaa.
Tha relay race. In which twenty or
moi men competed on a vide, gave a lot
of fun i d helped to work up the speed of
auiua of tha runner. It gave a variety to
tha v oik aw that the men enjoyed it. Tb
attempt at some aort of athletic exerclst
Is generally not strsnge to any entering
student, however foreign th apparatus In
th gymnasium may b. so that most of
them go at It wltnout being afraid of It.
Thla cannot always b said about th re
quired gymnaatic work.
The other forma of exorcise, th start
ing practice, the shot putting, discus and
Javelin throwing. Jumping, pole valtlng,
hurdling end starting about covered th
program of events In which a tiack team
would take part. It was arranged so
that at the end of the outdoor work th
men had a tunte for all the various sports
and In such a way that whatever exercise
they took on any one day was balanced
by tome work that would keep the de
velopment of their bodies fairly even.
While It Is hard to determine by meas
urement, even If they had been taken,
Just how much good the work did Dr.
Meylan Is assured by his assistants that
they noticed a decided improvement In
general condition In most of the men.
They got rid of a certain awkwardness
and worked into an adaptability of hand
ling themselves that was a desirable re
sult, even tf nothing else came of the
work. "General development," says Dr.
Meylan, "will work the men out of those
mannerisms of carriage that are charac
teristic of the athlete who does only cer
tain work. For Instance, tha gymnast,
the oarsman, the track athlete may have
distinctive manners of carriage. Soma
of them, of course, do not betray In that
way their activities. A firm and graceful
carriage Is worth while and It has been
the result of this outdoor work to some."
The outdoor work Is prescribed for mem
bers of the first two classes, who other
wise would have had board floor exerclst-.
It will be Impossible to go on with It In
the spring. The athletlo field, barring an
exceptional spring seaaon, doea not be
come usable until late In April. The uni
versity commencement Is on June 1, and
It will be necessary for the gymnasium
department to cease work two week's be
fore that time In order to prepare the
physical examinations, which, aa recited,
take two weeks to prepare.
This would leave so brief a time for the
outdoor work that It would not be worth
while. Therefore It will not be attempted.
It Is doubtful, at any event, whether there
would be any room left for tn gymnasium
classes with the base ball and track
squads working on the field.
This department of the gymnasium work
will be kept up, because it Is believed It
does much for general health. The plans
will be developed a little more fully next
autumn and In time Dr. Meylan believes
It will be conducted on an excellent work
able system. It will be necessary, however,
for the department to have greater finan
cial support If the extra men needed are
to be had for the work, and this Is an ob
stacle that may take time to surmount.
The outdoor exercise Is a part of the
"athletics for every one" Idea, of which
Dr. Butler Is a strong adherent, so It Is
supposed that the Columbia president will
be among the first to further any plans
the gymnasium department may have for
Increasing and extending Its influence
tmong the men of the first two classes or j
even those further advanced.
Board of Control Approve Action
Taken by Conference Gloomy
Ontlolc at lory City.
IOWA CITY, Ia., Deo. 4 (Speclal.)-Un-less
three of the Missouri Valley confer
ence schools fall to approve th motion
passed at Des Moines a week ago against
the training table, It is doomed, according
to the rules of the organisation.
At a meeting held this week th Univer
sity of Iowa board in control of athletics
approved the action taken at Des Moines.
Though local sentiment among the students
favors the training table the stand must
necessarily be against It, for such Is the
decree of the Big Eight. If Kansas, Ne
braska and Missouri stick to their stand
of the last nine months the training table
will again be In vogue among those schools
In the foot ball season of 1910.
In case three of the members of the
conference notify the officers of their
negative action to the training table, aool
lshment It la probabte, that Drake uni
versity at Des Moines, and Ames, will
seriously consider the establishment of a
training table next season.
"The training table Increased the effi
ciency of our foot ball team 20 per cent,"
said Captain Rlstlno of the Missouri Valley
champions at the meeting held in Des
Moines last week. Its value, recognsed
among the students and athletes, but not
the faculty members, will ultimately result
in Its retention. Is the belief here.
With eight "I" men leaving the univer
sity this spring the Hawkeye foot ball
squad will have few veterans next fall
whun Coach John G. Griffith starts o de
velop the 1910 eleven. Captain Hyland,
Murphy, Ehret, Alexander, Hanson, Bell
and O'Brien will form th nucleus for next
year's team.
Those on the varsity squad who will
jo lost by graduation or Ineligibility will
be Dyer and Collins, halves; Stewart and
Fee, quarterbacks; Comly, center and
guard; Captain Gross, tackle; Hanlon and
Kresensky, ends.
To take the place of Captain Gross
Coach Griffith will probably use Alexander
and Ehret, who will be worked Ih at left
tackle, where Alexander played this year.
It la also possible that O'Brien, who be
cause of his detersive play is one of the
strongest linemen In the state, may be
Bhlfted from center to tackle. At guards!
Bell and Hanson will be back, with Mo
Henry, the freshman star, Hooley, Bow
man and Beyers forming the competition.
Captain-elect Hyland will probably play
right end, unless he Is shifted to a half
beck position, and Chase, formerly a State
Normal star, will probably be eligible for
the other extremity. Forbes, Van Muar
ar.d Collins will be other candidates.
Currle, the former Ida Grove boy who
starred at quarter on this year's fresh
men team, will be at quarter next season,
with Williams, Jones and Wlshard us sub
stitutes, all of this year's first-year men
Kirk, a younger brother of the famous
"Chick" Kirk, Is certain to make a back-
flold position. II 1 said to have been
th equal of his brother this fall. Murphy
vill aaaln play lit the backfleld, probably
at fullback, with Wright as substitute.
Gordon and Tricky will be other candidates
for places back of the Una.

of Alrahlp.
NEW YORK, Deo. 4. "This airship and
flying machine business Is a precarious
proposition," declared an Inventor at the
old Morris Tark raoe course as he viewed
the remains of several wrecked fliers
scattered about the lawn where the mem
bers of the Aeronautics society have work
shops. Ths most discouraging part of It all Is
that not one of these graveyard specimens
have ever flown. Many a dream has gone
astray In their construction, and It has
been mostly sacrifice without gain.
Some of the Inventors have risked the
small fortunes on their flying machines,
but failure has not brought discourage
ment. There Is hardly one to be found
among them who would not be willing to
try It all over again. He Is sure It wotr.Q
come out all right the next time. Every
Wright or Blerlot success acts like s '
stimulant, and when one of these aerial
dreamers hears of the formation ot s
,1,000,000 corporation he Immediately gets
busy with a new scheme.

wv,an tha wnrkshona ODened a year ago
Mr. Kimball waa the sole Inventor on th
around Ha had built a helicopter which
gave great promle, but never made good.
After several attempts to get into tne air
It went to smash.
Then Mr. Kimball constructed a biplane
that eventually met the same fate. He Is
at present engaged on a third machine.
Stanley Y. Beach and Gustav Whitehead
built an aeroplane with which they hopeu
to win the M0 prixe offered by the pro
molar of the aeronautlo exhibition held
at Arlington. N. J. It proved a perfectly
good aeroplane with the exception I t It
failed to fly. Thereupon the Inventor fell
Aeronaut Beach was convinced that the
mistake was In making the machine a bi
plane. He Insisted 11 should have Dcen a
tnqnoplane. Aeronaut Whitehead was sat
isfied that the whole trouble was that they
had not built a trlplane.
. Aeronaut Beach took matters Into his
own hands, demolished the biplane and
constructed a monoplane. When he had
finished it he looked about for the engine
and found that It was missing. Then more
trouble started.
All bat the Engine.
His partner, disgusted, had selred the en
gine. Th Indignant Mr. Beach thereupon
started legal proceedings to recover the
engine. Mr. Whitehead vowed that he
would never, never give It up until Mr.
Beach consented to build a trlplane. He
kept his vow for a week, but then his reso
lution broke down. H sent for his former
partner and told him ha could have the
engine and build a monoplane or any other
kind of plane he wanted to.
The engine arrived, and Mr. Beach tried
out his new scheme, and still his Invention
showed no birdlike tendency. It Is housed
at Morris Park, and occasionally lu Inven
tor takes It out and runs It around the
track on wheels.
Fred Schneider built a big white bi
plane which In appearance was much like
the Wright machine, but In making a trial
It was wrecked. The undamaged parts
were kept, and th Inventor Is busy re
building it.
Morris Bokon constructed a trlplate
which never got off th ground, but with
which he took the SM0 prise at the Arling
ton aerial carnival for the beat constructed
aeroplane. Louis Adams, a manufacturer,
took a hand at flying machine building.
He turned out a contrivance that looked
much like a butttrfly, but It never ex
hibited flying qualities.
Mr. Hendrlckson, the college graduate,
tried the bat scheme, but without success.
