"That was In the days of the simple life,
before some fool scientist-philosopher put
a label on It."
Just a nsr Dream.
It was but a bit of day dream from the
busy real estate dealer. A little journey
that he took Into memory, the like of
which most any of the seriate grown-ups
who In serious guise are hiding boyish
hearts under a cloak of gravity, might
take. It was way back yonder maybe a
good many years ago, but the chances are
that you remembered It the day you saw
that first dandelion In the lawn. Bullhead
fishing la really a part of boyhood's own.
All winter the long cane poles had hung
on nails on the wall of the barn. Likely
enough the tips were bent or broken from
previous service, but this was easily
remedied by cutting off a section close to a
Joint. A coarse bit of line wound several
times about the tip of the polo and with
a spare length carried well down toward
the butt In case an old sockdolager should
break the tip, a good slued hook and a cork
float .completed the outfit.
Moni boys had several poles which,
when In action were net In the bank, their
owner sitting back at ease watching for
the telltale movement of the floats that
teli graphed the news of a nibble. Re
member how you would elide stealthily
down the bank and bend over the pole
waiting for the float to bob clear under
before giving the mighty Jerk that some
times tore the hoek out of the fish's mouth
or drove It so far into the horny Jaw that
a surgical operation with a jack knife was
necessary to remove It.

Bullheads, as you remember, carry a
spikelike fin on their backs. It is dis

NEW YORK. April 30-The new rules
governing foot ball are giving plenty of
trouble to coaches and players at spring
practice. The Yale men are finding It
difficult to adapt themselves to the regu
lations which prevent It diving tackle and
the use of arms In Interference. At Penn
sylvania the coaches declare that the new
rules are particularly difficult for a team
which has been using the Red and Blue
style of play.
Dr. Carl Williams, Pennsylvania's rep
resentative on thu foot ball rules commit
tee, talked to the squad at a recent foot
ball smoker. In speaking of the changes
In the rules, he said that Pennsylvania's
defensive foci ball would be entirely upset
and that her style of attack would be
weakened by the new regulations. One of
the favorite formations of the Red and
Blue attack was to pull the guards back,
and the rule which forces the man run
ning with the ball to hit the line unaided
In a severe blow to the old style. He also
said that Waiter Camp's suggestion which
prohibits the ends from playing outside
the opposing player on the defense will
change the type of players. According to
Mr. William, the end will no longer be
the chief factor In breaking 'up a play,
but the burden of the work will fall on
the guards, who will be obliged to run
out to the end to stop runs. In that case
the guards will have to be fast tacklers
and the ends and tacklers will be the
He agreed with the theory recently ex
pressed by the coach of Cincinnati uni
versity, who believes that the quarterback
will have new duties this fall. Dr. Will-
lams states that the rule which permits
the quarterback to go through the line at
any point will change that position Into
a third halfback. Since the men must hit
the line alone, Dr. Williams believes there
will be practically four halfbacks, ail
light and quick to squirm through open
ings. He said that the new regulations
will make the game very much like Eng
lish Rutfby foot ball, and he did not like
the change. Judging by reports from
Yale, the quarterback runs under the new
rules will reorganize most every system
of defense. During the "Blues' Initial
scrimmage the quarterback plunge through
the line was responsible for frequent

NEW YORK, April 30 Even the most
pessimistic of lawn tennis players and
there are always a few at this time of
the year are willing to Join with the
optimists In agreeing that the coming sea
son on the AtTH'rican courts promises to
be the most representative that this coun
try has ever experienced. The slgna of ma
terial progress are writ so large that he
who runs may read. Fundamentally, the
remarkable Increase In the championship
and tournament schedule list affords the
best indication as to the growth of the
sport. Then there is the promise of a
visit from famous foreign players, an ex
cellent prospect as to the Davis Interna
tional cup team, drawing from the top
class men, and the stlmulstlon of another
skirmish by the brilliant California wlcld
ers of the racquet upon eastern courts.
Indeed, the program that the officials of
the United States National association
have mapped out is a most Inspiring one.
Carried to completion with a xeal that may
be expected, the standard of the American
game Is surely destined to reach a lofty
place, which will broaden the scope of
lawn tennis In a manner hitherto unknown
In this country. .
To revert to a matter of history for a
brief moment, the effect of the discussion
as to the clay court championship of the
United States, pushed to a successful Issue
by the enthusiasm of Dr. P. B. Hawk and
western players, has been far-reaching In
Its working for the good of the game of
the courts and nets. It forced home the
fact that lawn tennis has become national.
Spirit waa aroused that heretofore had
slumbered and a rivalry has become en
gendered between tho east, the Pacific
coast and the middle west representatives
that Is bound to develop a host of men of
The aecond visit of the players from the
Pacific coast sounds the note or tnis
rivalry. The Institution of such a great
tournament as the Ardsley casino has
planned strengthens the general belief that
eastern-men realize that the time has come
when they must look well to their laurels
If they Intend to maintain their time-hon
ored supremacy. There Is no question as
to the Interest created In this section or
the country by the ani.ouncement that tho
wonderful pair of Californians, Maurice F .
Mclaughlin and Melville H. Long, are
coming east early this season to piny
through all of the Importrnt tournaments
on turf right up to the national champion
ship at the casino at Nswport, R. I. They
learned the ways of the eastern cracks last
year, and the fact that they reached the
finals causes them to believe that they can
take the honors back to the Pacific coast.
the same as have Miss May Sutton and
ber prototype. Miss Hazel Hotchklss. Then,
the fact that they have been in quest of
the Davis International challenge cup, to
Australia, has given them a world of confidence.
The two Californians are In for some
hard work. Anthony F. Wilding, the great
Australian, is to play In this country also
and, ft course, that means at Newport.
Possibly the English eup team of chal
lengers may be there also, for it Is pretty
certain at present that the team named by
England will cross the Atlantic ocean
again to try the ties for the blue ribbon
of the courts with the Americans In this
country. If the ties are played outside of
All this goes to show that William A.
Larned, the national champion In singles,
and Frederick B. Alexander and Harold H.
Hackett, the doubles holders, are In for
the trial of their lives. It Is freely pre
dicted at this time that Larned is due for
a defeat this year. The hope is that one
of the younger Americans may save the
title from the foreign Invasion, for It is
admittedly to be a hard struggle.
Taking all of these things Into account,
the schedule for the season in the east
and especially In and around New York,
has been shaped toward affording all of
the top-notch men splendid championship
nraettoe on turf. There are to be nearly
five weeks of competitions on turf leading
no to Newport. This is more than ever
before. The need of it was felt, however.
It waa first pointed out by Frederick B.
Alexander, the Internationalist, who li a
leallna- sDlrit of the West Side club ana
the Ardsley Casino, located at Ardsley-on
Hudson. He has labored to have the
elBhteen grass courts of the West Side
club, near Van Cortlandt park, put In the
best of condition, and there the famous
metroDlltan championship will be decided
early in June. From those courts the
players will move to Ardsley. There Is a
new championship on the list. To attract
uchx men as William A. larned, Robert
D. Wrenn, Raymond D. Little, Beals C
Wright, William J. Clothier, Harold H.
Hackett, Theodore Roosevelt Pell, Karl
H. Behr, Wallace F. Johnson, Robert Le
Roy and a host of others, the array of
prizes for this tournament Is to eclipse
the value of the gold and silver plate of
fered at Newport.
Following Ardsley comes the Middle
States, at Orange, N. J.; then the New
York state, at the Crescent Athletic club
at Bay Ridge. Already the Crescent lead
ers are preparing' to overtop their phen
omenal tournament last year, and that
club will be a strong factor in lawn ten
nis thla season. The Internationals may
even be decided there, on the historic turf
where the peerless Doherty brothers and
Dr. Johsua Pirn made their great stand for
the cup several years ago. Next In order
cornea the preparatory week on tne velvety
turf of the aristocratic Meadow club at
Southampton. L. I., from -vhich the welld
ers of the racquet move on to Newport.
NEW YORK, April SO A glance at the
dates already spoken for suffices to show
that the ensuing golf season will be full of
action. One of the worxt conflicts In dates
noted In a long while appears for the mid
dle of June, when no less than three events
are carded for practically the same days.
There Is the Montclalr Golf club's Invita

will claim attention the same time. Mote
important still is the national open cham

up it may be stated that Montclalr se

when the national body picked- the snmo

DAVIS CHALLENGE TENNIS MEET
England and Anatralaala Preparing
for Preliminary Matchea.
NEW YORK, April 30-England and
Australasia are already moving toward the
deciding of the preliminary tie matches
between the British Isles team and the
Americans for the Davis International
Challenge cup, either at Wimbledon, Lon
don, or In Australia.
The Australasians have cabled the Eng
lish association with the view of so ar
ranging the competitions, probably for the
courts at Chrlstchurch, New Zealand.
Secretary Newburn states that before re
plying to the Australasians he has of
fered the Americans, through Dr. James
Dwlght, president of the United States
association, the choice of either playing at
Wimbledon, London, or In New Zealand.
The English association stands ready to
guarantee to the association of this coun
try the same amount of expense money,
about $2,000, that the Americans guaranteed
to the English last season for the tie
matches, which were decided upon the
courts of the Germantown Cricket club,
Philadelphia. This country has not yet
accepted or rejected the proposition.
It is Intimated that in any event no
British Isle team- will visit this coountry
for the International lawn tennis cup ties
this season. Last year the Britons nar
rowly averted a split In their own asso
ciation because of sending a team to this
cot-ntry. A prominent player stated that
It was his opinion that the proposition of
the English association would be ac
cepted, as less expense would be entailed.
It was learned that the subject had been
discussed officially In this country, and
that there was the possibility of William
A. Larned, the national champion, and
the ex-champion, Beals C. Wright, taking
their places as the leaders of the Amer
ican team that would Invade England. ,In
any event, according to the rules, the men
need not be named before August, and
probably would not sa!l for London until
after the national championship tourna
ment at Newport had been decided.
