was the sensational player on the floor,
and his five feet four Inches of ginger

NEW YORK, March 30,-The victor ot
George Carpentter, the French middle
weight champion, . over Jim . Sullivan at
Monte Carlo; . when, the 'Frenchman .won
In seven minutes, has attracted the at
tention of followers of pugilism to the
progress ot- French boxers. Carpentier
Is now the recognised middleweight cham
plon ot Eusope. He has pace and a fine
defense, which, together with excellent
hitting powers, make him a dangerous
opponent fit the ring.
Ten years ago the Frenchman was still
supposed to be physically and morally In
capable to "f)ght like a Christian" (to
quote the quaint phrase used by a worthy
of the old prise ring), and when a little
latef le boxe began to be cultivated In
Paris It was possible tor the foreign critic
re eoBtenrplatsr-tne- fwat products of the
aew cult with mingled amusement and
amassment. Tst there was no reason In
tha nature of things why a race which
had always excelled in the art of the
sword should not also distinguish Itself
In the ring. The chsracterlstlo qualities
of the successful fencer- fine footwork,
sec urate timing, the ability to Judge dis
tance, the harmony of hand and eye.
and a reserve ot nervous energypsre
equally valuable In the modern game of
boxing, while the campact physique ot
the round-headd. short-necked French
athlete and his .conquerable eourage ob
viously provided him with tha capacity of
withstanding punishment. "
It wss soon evident that the deficiencies
of the first French boxers were merely
the result of a. lack of scientific teach'
Ing. As to their possession of the physi
cal and moral stamina (there Is really
no such thing as merely physical cou
rage), known as "bottom spirit". to the
old-fsshloned pugilists, there was no
doubt whatever. They could endure an
Intolerable deal of pounding: as a ruls It
required a knockout to extinguish the
emits which they wore on entering the
ring. And from the first the writer wss
Impressed by the fact that as a result,
no doubt of the national absemlousness
in drinking, and the eating of flesh the
French stomach Is much less susceptible
to Jolts and drives than that of the
average English or American pugilist.
The Invasion of Paris by a number of
American boxers provided the expert
teaching required, and the result la seen
today in thb appearance of a group of
skilful and hard-hitting French pugilists
whose style is In most cases ay blend of
American and English methods. A few
of theni adopt the so-called American
-crouch, which, as the annals of the old
prise ring clearly snow, la actually of
English origin. But the best of them can
only be called "Americanised" la the
that they attack in two plane.
paying as much attention to an opponent's
body as to bis head, whereas tha point
of the coin la the chief objective of t
tack with nearly all English boxers. All.
or nearly all, of them have a "punch."!
This la a striking proof that the I
French style la excellent In an essential J
point, which I too often Ignored by Erie-1
Usb teachers of boxing. The faculty of
hitting hard la not an Inexplicable Sift

Important that Ilea Happeaed la
a Generation la the Way
NEW YORK, March JO.-On fact In
connection with athletics In the college
which has been forcing Itself forwsrd for
the last half dosen years or more and
which waa brought out strongly at the
meeting of the National Colleglule Ath
letic association Is that sports and
athletio contests of sn Intercollegiate
nature are becoming of Increasing
portanc from day to day, although there
la not now and hardly will be any
tendency tor them to overshadow the
Intercollegiate contests with their picked
teams and keen rivalry. But from the
point ot view of those who have the phy
sical welfare of tha eollags student st
heart the new order of things Is the
moot Important that has happened la a
generation. 1 .
This asw plan of giving athletio exercise
to the youth of the colleges, although ex-
latlng and flourishing lb a more or less
unorganised stats In nearly every college
In the land, Is shown to Its beet advan
tage In the new system of athletio train
ing that has been Instituted at the Uni
versity of Wisconsin by Dr. George W.
Shier, who has been physical director
since Dr. C. P. Hutchlns resigned to take
up a similar poaltlon at Indiana uni
versity. Dr. Khlcr began his task by abolishing
practically entirely the old program of
compulsory gymnsstlo and callsthenle
classes and substituting training In the
branch of sport which ths student
thought he was best adapted to follow.
For the first part of the college year
the freshman class Is compelled to take
Its regular exercla outdoors, and Dr.
Khler ruled that every first year man
had to play foot ball without the tackling
feature. This continues until December I,
snd then the students take to the gymnas
ium, where Instead of being put through
the several gymnsstlo exercises they are
permitted to select one of any number
of sports such ss rowing, track athletics,
basket ball, swimming, fencing, boxing,
meaning and elementary foot ball, to
which they will devote' their attention
until spring. In the sophomore year prac
tically the same program Is followed out
As a result of this new process of mak
ing ths students take so many hours of
rcgulsr athletic exerciss each week. Dr.
Eltler ha built up such a desire for
sthletirs as such that It la believed that
in a short time there will not be the
'acuities to accommodate those who
want to go in for the various sports,
(.'amp Itandall, tha new athletio field.
Is already well filled with baas ball dia
monds and foot ball gridirons, but the
number of strictly Intercollegiate teams
that desire to make use of the ground
is men-suing at such a rapid pace that
there will hardly be room for them all
if it continues. Dr. Ehler distinctly en
courages the formation ot Intercollegiate,
teams In all branches ot sport and hi
efforts are not going unrewarded. With
such an enormous number of men com
peting It is smsli wonder that there Is
never a dearth of candidates for any one
branch of sport and that the Wisconsin
teams are better than they have ever
been In the past, taken one and all.
But It kj not only at Wisconsin that
the value of Intercollegiate porta bare
been recognised, stthough at no other
Institution sre there the facilities for
them as have been made possible by
Dr. Ehler. At Princeton there has been
for tb last lew years a general develop
ment In the Intramural Idea and no
there are all-Princeton competitions In
basket ball, bass ball, bowling, swim
ming, lawa tennis and relay racing open
to all students who havs sot the ability
I to make the first or second varsity
teams. The general athletic facilities
were badly overtaxed at Princeton last
year, but that has been remedied bow
and this season there will be little (ear
of crowding. Harvard has taken kindly
to the new. Mea of athletics and so have
practically all the colleges that support
well-organised Intercollegiate teams. The
following extract from the annual report
of Preeldent Jacob Gould tSchurman of
Cornell Is aa appreciation of the new or-
dr of things: t
"Side by aide with the successes in Inter
collegiate athletics there is developing at
Cornell university a system of home
athletics which la peculiarly gratifying to
those who recognise tb necessity of
sports and game for young men. but who
look with some apprehension on the ex-

rt'TSEV. England. March Sk-Th an
nual elshl-oared rowing contest between
crews representing ths Oxford and Cam
bridge universities which started this
morning at Putney bridge, waa declared
no race, after both shells had become
waterlogged. The president of the Ox
ford and Cambridge boat clubs bar de
cided that the race shall be rowed again
on Monday, April L
Except for, the presence ot a strong
westsrly wind, which boating experts oa
the riverside estimated would give aa
advantage to the crew which won tb
toes (or position and selected the Surrey,
or southern shore, delightful weather pre
vailed for the sixty-ninth intervarslty
boat race. . .
The course was the usual an from
Putney bridge to Mortlake, a dlstsnce ef
four, snd one-fourth miles. At aa early
hour the towing paths and other vantage
points along the riverside began to fill
with the ten of thousands who an
nually attend the great aquatic struggl
between the selected oarsmen of the two
Ox feral Ha l-oaa Lead.
Oxford waa robbed of what would have
been sn eaay win by rough weather. The
Cambridge shell wss ths first to go under
water a little over a mile from the start.
The boat commenced to ship water soon
aftsr the signal was si van to start.
The oxford eight managed to get as
far as Chlswlck Eyot, about three-quar
ters of tha dlstsneo, whea tb boat had
so much water on board that the crew
had totop rowing. Unlike tha Cam
bridge men, however, the Dark Blue,
aftsr towing thslr boat oa shore and
emptying out the water, re-embarked aaf
ttluehed the. course. . ,
Oxford look ths lead la the race almost
from tlie Mart. The Light Blue appeared
nervous, and besides taking" In minia
ture sea owing to choppy . waves, ther
shipped more water from their oars. By
the time they reached Harrod's Stores,
a llltls over a mil from ths start, they
were compelled to- abandon their boat
The majority ot the crew swam ashore
and the remainder were picked up by
tlie umpire's host.
The Oxford crew, by hugging the chore,
kept out of the roughest water until they
reached Chlswlck Eyot. There their eoach
ordered them to ball out thslr shell, but
they were unable to do so, or misunder
stood the order. Instead at bailing thr
went ashore, which Is a clear breach of
the rule of the race, and the umpire's
decision that tb contest wsa "as race"
wss a foregone conclusion.
Ths official time for th whol course
