r r.ourke and his Warriors Kill ar
rive In Omaha this morning, accompan
ied by the Wichita tram. The Kama
scheduled for thl. afternoon has been
transferred from Wichita to Omaha and
as a consequence the fans will be able
to see Pa's rejuvenated rona sooner than
they expected. The Kama will be railed
Monday Is an oft day and then three
game will be paved with the Unooln
team. WIrhila will then come for
three more. After that the Rourkea will
leave for a two-day trip and return to
play two games with the K. A trip
lasting thirteen days will follow.
The fans have been anxiously await
ing the return of the Colts and are pre
paring to turn out In bunchea. The first
half of the trip was not In favor of the
rtourke In the least, but they have been
holdlntf their own for the last few days
The new players added to the roster are
working strong and seem to nave done
a world of good for the team. The new
ones have been batting with a vengeance
and are playing a good game In the
Mar Life In Team. V
The acquisition of the new players by
Hourke seema to have put life Into the
team. Tick and Nlehuff, In the Infield,
have strengthened the team 100 per cent.
The whole team works together much
better than in the past. Thla waa evi
denced in the game Friday against Wich
ita when not an error waa made by the
Rourkea and ten hlta were made. Every
man oq the team with the exception of
the catcher and pitcher connected safely.
The work on the bases has Improved
wonderfully and the way the Colts are
stealing besea la a caution. It will be a
much different team that will play this
afternoon from the one which left here
fifteen daya ago. Captain Pchlpke has
been coaching the team In the way he
should, but In a way which he could not
do while playing in the game. He Is
new taking a rest which he has needed
for many daya, and will be able to fill
any position when he Is required.
Pa Rourke Is Immensely satisfied with
the present team and thinks he baa a
bunch now which will keep the other
teama In the league hustling to get the
beat of them.' However, the present ros
ter of the team Is too large and some of
the bunch will have to leave. Waivers
have been asked by Rourke on Picker
ing, Anderson, Graham and Patten. '
Pick, the new third baseman la espe
cially pleasing to Rourke. He was se
. cured through Cleveland, and la a grad
: uate of the University of Virginia. He
Is but 21 years of age and Is as fast as
ny other man in the position tn the
league. He has a good whip and can
throw the ball across the diamond with
the speed of a cannon ball. Nlehoff,
who usually plays at the third sack, has
been sent to second and Is putting up
some game there, ton. Following Is the

BATTLE ROYAL FOR ASPIRANTS
Tournament for White Hopes to Be
Held in New York.
TWELVE GIANTS ARE ENTERED
lllianla 1 oanaster Weighs !IT5
I'oanda and Stands Barefooted
Ma Fees Klaht Inches
NEW YORK. May 20 Twelve white men
who think they know how to fight with
gloved finis and may develop sufficient
prowess to wrist the heavyweight cham
pionship title from Jack Johnson have sent
In their names to Manager Tom O'Rourke
of the National Sporting club expressing
their desire to take part In the "white
hope" boxing tournament on May 2.
O'Rourke firmly believes that the only
way to discover real white heavyweights
la by holding a tourney open to all comers,
the contestants being matched by lot to
meet In bouts of four rounda each, the eli
mination process finally bringing the two
best men together for first honors. The
entry list has not yet closed, and O'Rourke
said that he might ba compelled to make
the tourney a two night affair. Inasmuch
as "white hopes'' In various parts of ths
country have wired that their entry blanks
have been filled out and are In the malls.
One of these persons halls from Jackson
ville. Fla., according to O'Rourke, and Is
six feet nine Inches tall. .Another lives In
Palestine, Tex., and his expenses will be
paid here by a bank president In the Lone
Star state. Yet neither has made known
his name to the club's managing director.
Of the twelve entiles the biggest phys
ically Is Herman Tracey of Bradford, III.
He stands six feet eight inches In Ms
home-made socks and can tip the beam
at 276 pounda. He has a reach of elghty-alx
and one-half Inches and writes that he
once killed an ox with a right-hand blow
between the eyes. If Tracey , should
happen to be drawn with Joe Rogers, the
huge wrestler, who Is among ths entries,
there wouli be a small earthquake In the
neighborhood. Rogers weighs 280 pounds,
s six feet two Inches tall and Is hard as
nails. Bob Day of Toronto held the ama
teur championship of Canada for six years
and has taken part In one professional
fight Charley Mulbach of Philadelphia,
who la six feet four Inches tall and weighs
fit pounds, has a local reputation as a
slugger In Sleeptown. Jack McFarland of
Brooklyn, six feet one inch tall and weigh
ing 205 pounds, made his first appearance
at O'Rourke's club the other night, when
he handed a severe trimming to Bob
Williams, who Is known as "ths Masked
Marvel." Williams is in the list and bis
entry blank shews that he Is six feet four
Inches tall, his avoirdupois being 200
Al Benedict of Hoboken, six feet tall and
scaling at 200 pounds, may prove a hard
man to beat, as he has shown considerable
skill among ths kind of boxers he will
meet. Oeorge De Vray, six feet tall and
weighing 19 pounds, halls from Canada,
while Arthur Pelky, six feet one Inch In
height and carrying 197 pounds, resides at
Chlcopss, Msss. From Brooklyn oome the
an tries of Oeorge Owens, six fset one Inch
and 1M pounds, and Oeorge McOarry, five
feet eleven inches and 190 pounds. Ed
Smith of Jersey City rounds out the list,
He is a six-footer and weighs 1M pounds
Pitchers All Ought
to Be Good Batsmen,
Team with Efficient Hitters in Bat
tery Has Great Advantage,
Sayi Beds' Manager.
"Give me pitchers who can hit ths ball,'
ays Clark Griffith, manager of the On
clnnati Reds. "I wish . there were a few
more pitchers available like the top-notoh
ers of twenty years ago. In thoss days a
pitcher believed that he was hired to soak
the ball as well as curve, and he always
did his best to get a hit. Pitchers who
were weak hitters thsn were feeble simply
because they dldn t know how to swing
the ash and connect, not because they
didn't try to slam the pellet with all their
might. Keefe, Welch, Ramsay and Jfra
Galvln were among the old-time pitchers
who could not bat, but they tried all the
time, and If one of them got a hit he was
as proud as a kid just breaking Into tha
The team that has a hard-hitting
pitcher and a slugging catcher possesses
a big advantage over its opponents. It Is
sending up nine wallopers to seven for ths
other slds, which Is hampered by two
dead sure outs. The weak hitting of the
average pitcher Is due to the fsct that
in spending all his time developing his
curves he neglects practice with the bat
until It Is too late. The pitcher, too,
seems to think that when he Is delivering
the goods In the box nothing more Is re
quired ot him. Hence his careless. Indif

NEW YORK, May 20-It is now prac
tically certain that the makeup of the
American team in the international speed
race In England on July 1 will be Charles
Weymann, J. V. Martin and Earle L.
Ovinaton. The Wright brothtrs and Glen
H. Curtiss have definitely announced to
the Aero Club of America that they are
not building and have no Intention of con
structing special machines for the big
Weymann. who has done all his flying In
France, will probably have the fastest
aeroplane of the trio. He has cabled to
he Aero club that his seventy-horse power
Onome-driven Nlauport monoplane Is good
for eighty miles an hour and Is ss fsst
as any of the 130-hore power mschlnes
that have so far been seen In flight.
Ths speed of the fastest machines of
Ovlngton and Martin Is a little over seventy
mllea an hour. Ovlngton recently arrived
In this country with a 1011 model seventy
horse power Onome-Blerlot. Fitted with
racing wings, Ovlngton no doubt could
make seventy-five miles an hour.

NEW TORK, May SV-Kncoursted bv
what has already taken place in the early
golf tournaments of tho srason. there are
many who talk prophetically of n hard
time for the veterans of the links this
The virtory of Gardner W. White f
Oakland over Walter J. Travis would seem
till further to strengthen the belief that
the ways of the former champion will not
lie entirely along the same old rose trewn
Blank dismay there was for a time at
the dearth of budding material. It was
this apparent void that was responsible
for the promulgation of Lelghton Calkins'
scheme for the stimulation of Interest
among the Juniors.
Looking Into the future with a steadfast
gaxe the Plainfield prfteldent could see
nothing whereon to build his hopes. When
the Travlses. the Herreshoffa snd the
Douglasses should cease to swing their
clubs In defense of metropolitan prestige
he conceded New York, so long the pace
maker, would cease to be a power In the
Thereafter supremacy on the links would
shift to the middle west and It might be
years before this district would regain Its
Aspirants In Sight.
Now the horixon haa cleared.' A more
hopeful day has dawned. From the first
events of the season proof enough hss al
ready been obtained that there will yet
be young golfers a plenty to cope with
every emergency. G. W. White. O. Kirk by,
A. Camorito, P. Carter and M. Rlsley are
some of the names. It Is hoped, cf players
who will fin the records in times to come.
F. W. Dyer Is snother youngster of
promise, as several who played at Garden
City ran testify. Seventy-five strokes for
a round of his home links at Montclair Is
what he can boast.
Of Klrkby golfers already have heard.
Supreme at Englewood for some time he
has not attained to that position In repre
sentative golf that his action on the links
would seem to warrant. With Just a little
more abandon In work Klrkby would prove
a worthy opponent for the best In the
country. Indeed, but for his want of
"fight," he would certainly have dinplaced
Travis In the Garden City final.
Of slightly different stamp are Camorito
and Carter, who may be regarded as the
finds of the sesson. Carter really was un-
eartnea last summer among the sand dunes
of Bhlnnecock Hills, where he bowled over
a number of regular tournament players
and waa only stopped in the final by John
M. Ward. That was young Carter's debut.
His next appearance waa at Garden City
recently, where even in the qualifying
round he showed that his golf was steadily
Improving. His first effort was responsible
for a return of R8, which, considering the
conditions and the fact that a nine figured
at a four hole, was rsally fine work.
Performers Are Hopefal.
In match play Carter was unfortunate
to be defeated at the nineteenth green. As
he Is but a Junior in every sense of the
word this young Brldghamton boy, now a
member of. Nassau Country club, would
seem to have a bright future before him.
White's forty-one hole victory over Travis
Is almost sufficient to keep his memory
green among golfers until the end of time.
The Oakland boy's performance wsa re
freshing because it was sustained. Young
players have occasionally shown good work
against the veteran, but only with few ex
captions have they prevailed.
There Is the memorable game between
Travis and Travers in a chsmrtonshlp
semi-final as one outstanding Instance ot
the overthrow of the veteran. Almost a
parallel to the recent final was the strug
gle with Henry Wilder of Boston. This
match, liks that In which White figured,
also went to the forty-first green, only In
that case It resulted In the elimination of
the younger player.
White, then, haa done something of which
few can boast. Previous to his recent de
feat Travis bad missed but one tournament
trophy out of eight at Garden City. With
due deference to Travis It Is slmost re
freshing to tlnd a change. If the result
was tantamount to an admission that the
former champion had gone away back
there would be little cause for rejoicing
even among the most ardent supporters of
White. The final stages of the match dis
proved this, for the wlnnsr played a really
remarkable game In the afternoon, and It
was noticeable that over the extra holes
Travis was swinging even more lustily
than his younger opponent.
The Garden City man did not make one
faulty tee stroke, while toward ths end
White weakened perceptibly and had to
play the odd for perhaps the only occa
sions lp the match on the fortieth and

with only one defeat and a 6-to-0 score

season by his clever drop kicking. ,
MacGregor. for two years first substi
tute tackle and varsity tackle last fall,
knows the art of playing on the line from
A to Z and should make an excellent coaen
for the forwards. The unusl practice of
having graduate coaches bsek for several
weeks during the sesson will be followed
again next year. It Is also understood
that the captain of the team Is to have
more power ihan usual next year and the
two field coaches will serve more or less
as Hart's assistants.
Such a system of coaching Is a rsdlcaJ
departure from anything yet tried In
Princeton, snd time alone can prove its
worth. Two years sgo the so-called "tri
umvirate" guided Pinceton's foot ball
Mars, having charge both of the police
and the actual field work. The new plan
differs materially from that. In thejflfrt
that separate field coaches are appointed.
Roper, as chairman of the committee In
charge, will still be the most powerful
factor In Princeton foot ball, but he will
probably do very little actual Coaching in
