BAN JOHNSON never appeared to
worse advantage than In his con
troversy with the National league
starting over the ticket-scalping
scandal. He has not gamed a
point, that we can see, hut has lost every
one. He began by declaring In character
istic manner, that he had proof that
Would tlx responsibility for the tlcket
scalplng In New York, but when the
shown-down came, failed to produce his
proof or anything resembling It. In the
meantime others Know fairly well, that,
while tickets were scalped during the
world's series In New York, they were
handled In the same way at Philadelphia,
Johnson evidently had not expected this
to come out. Wlicrf the bis meeting comes
off, then, finding himself unable to make
good on his war talk, he threatens to
stop all professional Intercourse between
American and National leagues, and de
mands that the American league shall
hereafter have full charge of ticket-sell
ing for such world a championship games
as are played on American league terri
tory. The transparency of nil this re
veals a whipped man trying, to make a
cloud to blind eyes to his complete fall
down. National league magnates very
promptly called to attention the fact
that in the recent Giants-Athletics world s
championship, the American league had
charge of the tickets in Philadelphia, so
that there was absolutely nothing in this
"demand." And as for cutting otf all
"Intercourse" betwen the two leagues,
what Intercourse Is there that could be
cut off except the world's series? And
when Johnson talks Of not permitting the
'American league to participate In world's
series with tho National, he makes an ex
hibition of himself. Not so long as the
big money Js there will even a big fel
low like Bancroft Johnson do away with
any world series. No, no. There are a
few more voices In the business that
would be heard If anything of that sort
was attempted. But there is no danger
of Johnson attempting It. President Lynch
and other Nationals laugh, reports say,
at Johnson's temper and frustration and
It Is enough to laugh 'at. Johnson, It
appears, has been spoiled by "overmuch
petting and paniperlng-too much power.
He has done a lot for his league and base
ball, but so have one or two otlu-r en
Some did a little even before he came
on the scene of action and It Is barely
possible that if by any providential dis
pensation he should be removed from
the scene, ba.se ball might poke along
somehow or other with out him. It Is
too bad that with so grave a problem as
r,.it arnlnius to be solved, . Johnson
should havq flushed the games as he has
done. Before making nis caiu cnaiaea
and threats, he should have recalled that
an Illustrious and strenuous statesman
once said that, "Words are good and
.n when backed by deeds." And in
the meantime things will drift along In
the Bame old groove and Ban will recover
from thl grouch Just as he has recovered

Hard to Heat, They tnnnot Ue
Considered Seriously aa
NEW YORK, Dec. 10. Tyrus Cobb, who
Is now back In Georgia, says that the
Detroit Tigers will win the American
league ponuant next year. vThe open sea
son for base ball forecasts Is at hand,
and the king of hitters is the first to turn
prophet. In the course of his remarks he
places the New York Highlanders a poor
sixth next year, In spite of the fart that
reorganisation of the club is Imminent.
Ty cannot see the Philadelphia Athletics
from aiiy angle whatsoever. Since De
troit has been the only team to give the
Athletics a fight it is natural for Ty to
pick the Tigers to finish first. His rating
of the teams next year is as follows:
Detroit, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago,
Cleveland, New York, Washington and
According to Cobb, luck was against the
Tigers last year, but with the brilliant
Del Galnor back at first tho way Is
paved for a triumph over Connie Mack's
outfit. The Philadelphia pitchers, he be
lieves, have now stood up well In three
hard campaigns, and tho time la ripe
for one of tho great trio of Bender,
Coombs and Plank to fall by the wayside,-
If any one of the three falls to
come up to' expectations the chances of
the Athletics will be seriously Impaired
Boston may be the dark horse in the
race, in Ty's opinion. The Red Sox aro
sure to finish better than they did last
season, and they will probably bo in the
thick of the pennant fight up to the
end of next season. Accidents to star
players and the lack of a good first base
man handicapped the team In the last
Ilostou Looms I n.
With Jake Stahl, a fine first baseman
and a hard hitter, back, Boston looms up
as a formidable flag contender, accord
ing to Cobb. O'Brien, a brilliant young
pttoher,' who was pronounced a find after
pitching a few games toward the end of
last season, will be on hand to help Joe
Wood. With these two stars In the box,
who can win the majority of their games,
tho chances of the Red Sox are better
than In some time.
While the Chicago White Sox will be a
hard team to beat and may improve a
trifle over last year's form, they cannot
be considered seriously as pennant hopes,
says Ty. The selection of Jimmy Calla
han aa manager Is a step. forward, he
admits, but the whole team Is too much
unsettled to be developed Into a wlnnlug
machine without a full season's experi
ence. Ty picks Harry Davis to do well as a
manager of the Cleveland Naps, but he
selects the team as occupants of fifth
place, nevertheless. Brilliant pitching
with a demoralized catching staff and
infield kept the nine out of the race lost
year, although It proved utrong enough
to forge ahead of Chicago and Boston.
Cobb looks for the Bed Sox and White
Sox to show Improvement next year
which the Naps cannot checkmate.
The Highlanders, ho declared, will not
finish better than sixth, and even then
wl' bo hard pushed by tho Senators.
With Clark Griffith at the helm and a
few important changes in the lineup,
Washington ought to make a better show
ing. Cobb says that Griffith' is due for
a change -in the hard luck which has
followed him in his career aa a manager
and fortune will smile on him next Rea

The grade school youngsters put In
sonio busy hours last week practicing
for the tests In thinning the horizontal
bar which will bo held during tho sec
ond week in January under the direction
of Raymond Lu Cams, superintendent of
Judging from the showing made by tho
boys In piactlce, this test will be the
hardest of any which come under the
fall athletic contests. It is new to most
of the boys ami they havo considerable
difficulty in mastering the knack of
.raising themselves uny number of suc
cessive times. Many of the boys lack
enough strength in their aims and the
ability to keep the body In the right
poise while chinning themselves.
To pass the test In the first class the
boy must chin the bar nine times la suc
cession and in the second lie must, raise
up six times without stopping, lu the
ti;lrd class, four times is the requirement.
After the chinning tests are completed

high school track squad, Is considered
one of the fastest men In the middle

prestige among western track followers.
He has been able to win a place In

which Is respected all over the Missouri

100-yard dash, made at Lincoln In the
valley tnterscholastlc meet last May. For
the 1U0 yards distance in this meet, on a
good track and with no advantage of
wind, three official timers clicked him off
at 10 seconds flat In the preliminaries.
Wood easily won the finals in 10, but
several officials of the meet then agreed
upon 10 seconds as a permissible record.

OPEN ROWING TO BE REVIVED

NEW YORK, Dec. ltf. For years there
has been Willi) rowing In open competi
tion by professionals. A revival of it
seems certain' as a result ot'the effort
of "Eddie", Durjian, a 'Canadian profes
sional sculler) to arrange a match with
R. Artist tji championship of the
world. ThUt-fimmeit j has fallen through,
but develoiliiMrtits have arisen from th
negotiations which assure Durnan sevN
oral races next year.
William Haines, a professional nculler
of note in Doston, with Durnan, will
probably row for the professional single
sculling championship of the United
Btates and Canada. "Jim" Wray, the
Harvard coach, and Frank B. Oreor. four
time senior single amateur sculling cham
pion of Canada and tha "United Stutcs,
wish to row the Canudlan.
Durnan is regarded as thf fastest pro
fessional sculler on this side of the At
lantic. He Issued a challenge several
months ago to Arnst, the professional
champion of tho world. Arnst accepted
on the condition that his terms be com
piled with. Durnan agreed to many of
them, but others he felt would have hand
icapped him and made the match profit
less to him. Arnst suspended nugotta
tlons when ho learned that all his de
mands would not be granted.
Durnan wanted the raco rowed In Can
aa. Some years ago he made a trip to
Australia, to row for the championship.
He left Canada In tho finest possible con
dition, but on the long Journey across
the ocean he became seasick. Ills condi
tion became grave and ho required the
services of a physician. On the trip
Durnan lost twenty pounds. He rowed
the race shortly after his aYrlval because
of stipulations in the articles of agree
ment, but he had nu chance to. win.
When the facta became known that
Durran was seeking matches and that the
one with Arnst had failed h wss chal
lenged by Haines and also by Wray. Borne
years ago Wray and Durnan were to
have rowed, but the Harvard coach found
It Impossible to meet hlui after negotia
tions had been going on some time.
Haines sent a direct challenge to Dur
nan. The latter replied to It. He said
he would meet Haines In the spring In
a three or four-mile race In Toronto Hay,
Canada, for a purse of $l,o00. The Cana
dian prefers to low In June. The warmer
the weather the better l( suits hlin. The
raco lias practically bnen arranged. Of
the threo.VWray, Greer and Haines, the
latter will probably get the first chance
at the Canadian.
liostou rowing enthusiasts, especially
those In the amateur ranks, aro Inclined
to the belief that Groer would prove a
mora formidable opponent against, Durnan
than Wray or Haines. Greer Is a big,
heavy-muscled sculler, a little more than
six feet tull, with broad shoulders and
undisputed skill with the sculls. Greer
proves a consistent champion. He had Ire
mendous power. He wrested the honor
from C. t. Titus of this city at Worces
ter some years ago.

accept a position aa tralm r for crews. He

Few Changes Are
Made This Year in
Basket Ball Rules
Ilasket ball rules for the season of 1511-
1112 contain few changes over those of Inst
year and followers of the game will have
little difficulty In mastering tha minor
changes that have been mad.
The inuch-dJscuesad "dribble" rule Ih
still In force, although It was tha center
of much unfavorable comment last sea
son. Several leading physical training
men In different parts of tha country
advised eliminating this rule altogether,
while many coaches and team managers
suggested revising It somewhat.
George T. Hepbron of Naw York, sec
retary of the amateur rules -omnjltteo,
says of the "dribble" rule: "This rule
continues to elicit discussion and, as
usual, some say U In too strict, others,
It Is too lax, while a few say. 'cut It out
altogether.' Tho committee feels that the
rule, as at present framed, strikes the
happy medium, and believes It. Is more
conduolve to teamwork than tho various
modifications being tried out by Individual
An addition to the rule for putting tin
ball Into play has been made. If, after
the ball Is placed In play, It la batted
outslda by both players simultaneously. It
shall be thrown up again between tha
same players at the same spot us before.
This rule formerly only contained pro
visions for putting the ball Into play
after It had been knocked out of bounds
by one player. 1
. Section of mils 11 Is slightly
changed to read, "There shall be no tack
ling, holding, pushing or body checking of
atl opponent under any clicumHlunoes."
Grasping the clothing or person of k
plyer with one or both hands, or putting
one or both hands about a playar 'a In
terpreted to mean holding.
The usual ruin of allowing a player but
five seconds to hold the ball out of
bounds it still in force. The rules gov
erning roughness and disqualifications re
main unchanged. Ona Important rule
which is the name aa that of last season
Is the ona that reads, "A man onea Re
moved from tha game cannot play again
during the game.''
Other changes are minor onea. They
pertain chiefly to slight changes In the
wordings of Home paragraphs and to pre
senting clearer Interpretations of certain
clauses. Several superfluous words have
been struck out of some rules where the
meaning is obvious.

By Contestants in
Game of Walking
NHW YORK, Dec. 1.-Any ordinary obi
server who attends athletic meets must
admit the growing popularity of walking.
This fact Is chiefly due to two reasons
tho Improved performances on the part
of the contestants and the Increasing fa
miliarity with the merits of this particu
lar branch of sport on the part of tha
It n truo that much of the Interest 1
manifested from a comic, standpoint, as
tho efforts of many beginners often ap
pear ludicrous. Nature Intended running
as a means for man to resort to when de
siring to attain unusual speed; therefore
to attempt anything beyond a certain ,
limit In fast walking Is practically at
tempting to defeat a law of nature, and
Its accomplishment Is possible only after
careful study and long practice.
Tho heel-and-toe, ntyle of walking com
bines the best results achieved by stu
dents of walking ever since fast walking
was tried out. and la based upon sclen.;
tlflo principles. ;
Ordinarily fifteen minutes to the mil

utea may ba classed as fast walng, and
It Is very doubtful If many people can.
walk a mile under, ten minutes with per-
feet fairness, without resorting to tha
heel-and-toe style. It is only necessary
to attempt this to be convinced that, too?
much resistance la encountered Id th
common atyle of walkln to attain aveu
this moderata rate of speed.
, Therefore, If a ten-minute mile is Im
possible for ordinary walking, and a alx-
and-a-half-mlnute mile actually has been
exceeded by adopting the heel-and-toa
style, tha advantage of the latter becomes -j
apparent and serves aa a strong argu-
ment that It deserve to become an es-jf
tabllshed feature at all athletlo meets.
Many prominent athletes who hava dis- i
tlngulshed themselves both In running
and walking declare the latter to be fariJ
tha more difficult of tha two, not alouu-f
In perfecting tha style, but also on ac
count of the greater physical strain which,
It entails. '
In order to abide by the rules tha body
must be perfectly erect at all times, tha
leg must be rigid every time tha heel Is
placed down and tne heel of one foot
must be down before the toe of the other
foot Is raised. . ,
A rolling motion Is also Imparted to tha
hip to overcome friction, and this when .
properly performed Induce great speed.
The position of the body pWse a aoverai
strain upon the stomach brought. on by
the necessary exertion, and unlike run
ning thla strain cannot bo relieved, as
the position of the body permits of no
relaxation of the stomach muscles.
By observing; the rule requiring tha-'
knee to be "locked" every time tha heel''
is brought down practically places tha'.
entire wolght of the body upon t..e locked '
knee. This Is very trying and often re-'
suits In the disqualification of a con
testant, who has become too exhausted
to comply with thla requirement, thus
being guilty of unfair walking.
