record for the Mlchllln cup, which stands
at 231 kilometers (144 miles) In four houra
seventeen minutes and thirty-five seconds.

Count Jacques De Ltsaepa. aon of the
late Viscount Ferdinand De Leasops. made

won the Mlchllln cup at Mourmelon No
vember S laat, beating all aeroplane records
for duration end distance and establishing
a record of 144 miles. Hubert Latham, the
French aeronaut, holds the official record
for altitude. Owing to tha difficulty In
measuring height attained by aeroplanes,
there Is some discrepancy aa to his reoord,
but it Is between 1600 and 1,000 feet. Or
ville Wright made an unofficial flight at
Potsdam on October 1 which was estimated
at 1,800 feet

school board of this city has received the
architect's plans for the new high school,
which will ba erected here next summer
to ba In readiness for tha beginning of the
school term next year. The building will
coat about 840,000. and will ba planned for
high school work alone. While tha coat
will not ba largo, one of tha reasons Is
largely In the, fact that by the purchaae
of tha old state capltol by tha school board,
they secure tha lumber required for the
new building at practically no cost to the
city. This allows them to secure a build
ing at a much lower eost than would ba
possible In pass the lumber would have

prices. As soon as the old capltol building

HARMONY -OUT OF DISCORD
Former President of Athletic Union
Predicts success of Kroruanlsutlon
NEW TORK, Dec 81. Harmony out of
diHcord, and more compleia organisation
out of disruption, a new national and
International birth for sport, ls what James
K. Sullivan, former pres. dent of the Ameri
can Athletic union, believes the futura
holds ln store tor sporting in general.
"All these controversies," he said, to
day, referring to tne breach between
east and west In golfing, tennla, skating
and some of the Ittser departments ui
national sport, "are much to be regretted,
but mark this: They will all result In a
oleaner and broader basis fur athletics ln
Although the winter has seen already
more dissension than ln several years, It
ls Mr. Sullivan's firm belief that the pres
ent sectional division of sports will con
stantly broaden toward the national Idea.
And one necessity to effect this growth,
ha holds Is a supreme court of appeals in
"There are three or four millions of peo
ple ln organised athletics of all sorts In
this country," said Mr. Sullivan. "And the
center of that athletic population is con
stantly moving westward. , .Thirty years
ago it was concentrated in and. around
New York, but we have been forced time
after time to acknowledge that the west
ls rapidly effecting a balance ln tha coun
try's athletic Interests.
"The A mm loan Athletla union this year
held Its national championships in Seattle,
In the coming year they will be held in
New Orleans, and a Chicago man Is now
president of the union. These concessions
oame naturally and hava resulted in gen
eral benefit to sport. '
"We must have, and ' shall hava soma
day, an International board of full control,
with International rults and regulations. '
Though the tennis and golf , sttnatlona
hava developed no new phases within the
last few day a, it la evident, the leaders
say, that the breach between the east and
west ls a wide one. Kapeclally, It would
appear that, If tha National Lawn Tennla '
association, which meets here soon, does
not recognise the western demand for a
clay court national tournament, tha west
erners will withdraw,
iMr. Sullivan ls inclined to favor tha
western attitude, though the matter la ad
mittedly outside the Jurisdiction of tha
American Athletla union
