John Bartels, Mere Freshman,
Steps in to Capture Laurels
When Howard Berry
Leaves School.
New York, May 25 Pennsylvania's
guardianship of the American pen
tathlon championship is getting to be
rather chronic.
With the passing of the great How
ard Berry, it was thought the title
would be won by some other college,
and several western athletes were
conceded a good chance in the recent
Penn relays. But Penn came to the
fore with a new pentathlon star in
, the person of John Bartels, the big
i freshman, who carried off the honors
in the recent meet at Philadelphia.
So Penn's chances of holding the
title for three more years at least,
" seem very good, for in Bartels, Head
Coach Robertson has uncovered a
w remarkable all-around athlete. Like
his predecessor, Howard Berry, this
Bartels is no flash at any particular
track or field event, but he can per
form in all of them with such even
consistency that he caused the crit
. ics to marvel when they watched him
win the championship in Quakertown.
Still Lacks Form.
Bartels was initiated into the class
of future stars at Stevens Prep, and
while there he specialized in the low
hurdles, so Coach Robertson says that
" if he is to be a star in any particular
- event the low hurdles will probably
be the one.
Like the average newcomer, Bar
tels lacks form, except that he has
action which reminds the critics of
Joe Loomis in the sprint events. At
tossing the javelin and throwing the
weights he appears clumsy, but with
. in another year it is expected that
Robertson will have trimmed off the
rough edges.
, Having enlisted in the Penn en
gineering corps, Bartels will not be
taken away from the Quaker institu
tion by the draft, for he has been
designated by the War department as
one of the many who will be permit
ted to finish his course.
" Columbia, Mo., May 25. Missouri
university w6n the Missouri Valley
track meet here today, making a total
of 62 points. Nebraska university
finished second, totalling 39 points.
' The other universities finished in the
following order:
" Uiversity of Kansas, 10; Washing

Sylvester of Missouri university was
the highest individual point winner,
running up a total of 11. Scholz of
Missouri tied with Bohn of the Wash

and tied for a seventh. Two broke a
world's record. Rice of Kansas and
Osborne of Missouri, tied at six feet
and one-half inch in the high jump,
breaking the world's record , of five
feet eleven and three-quarters inches;
Scholz of Missouri ran the 100-yard
dash in the face of a high wind in
9 4-5 seconds, breaking the former
record of 10 flat.
Bob Simpson, famous Missouri
hurdler, gave an exhibition race in
the high hurdles and demonstrated

The half mile, quarter mile and two
mile races were exciting and run in
good time. Wilborne of Baker ran
the 880-yard dash in 1:58:3, which was
considered remarkable considering the
high wind.
The mile and half mile relays were
easily taken by Missouri. Finny of
Nebraska was running the high
hurdles well until he hutr his leg, mak
ing the lows and was forced to quit
the race.

Fulton 'and Dempsey Discover
to Sorrow That Billy Is One
of Toughest Chaps In
Chicago, May 25. That this Billy
Miske is one of the toughest young
men in the boxing game is freely ad
mitted now by those who saw his re
cent set-to with Jack Dempsey, the
Pacific coast slugger. And the fans
are now able to understand how
Miske was able to stand off Fred Ful
ton for 10 rounds and gst very little
the worst of it. Billy has demon
strated that he is just about too much
for anybody to put away in the 10
round route.
Dempsey gave the St. Paul man a
pretty fair mauling, especially in the
seventh, when a beautiful right upper
cut fairly lifted Billy off his feet. But
right there Miske showed the stuff
that men are bred of and sweathered
the storm. Dempsey tore in and tried
to finish his foe, but Miske blinked
mightily and showed his fighting
stuff by staving off oblivion befcre the
bell. In the nevt round he had re
covered and kept Dempsey at a dis
tance. Miske is a hard man to hit solidly
because he is always flopping with the
punch. He didn't box enough with
Dempsey, spoiling his best chance by
trying constantly to get in close and
slug with the man from the Pacific
coast. This was exactly playing into
Dempsey's hands and he took the play
away from Billy.
How much chance Dempsey would
have with Fred Fulton is still a ques
tion. He did better with Miske than
Fulton did against the same man, but
this may not mean anythjng. Miske
was unstrung during the' first two
rounds and it looked like he might
collapse through sheer waste of nerv
ous energy, but he steadied himself
wonderfujly after that and put up a
rousing battle, although a losing con
test all the way through.
Little Fellows Fight.
If t he little fellows keep up their
present rate of activity, the old argu
ment that it takes the big fellows to
draw the money at the gate is liable
to get a sudden dash of cold water,
It is true that the big fellows usu
ally outdraw the bantams, but when
one considers the game carefully, it is
discovered that the hefty ones only
box now and then, lhe banties, on
the other hand, are continually at it,
boxing two or three times a week and
taking in the com at such a rapid rate
as to nullify anything the giants do,
The real champion among the little
fellows, Pete Herman of New Orleans,
has been blocking the game of late,
but even his apparent disinclination to
do anything in the way of ring work
isn't hindering the remainder of the
class. Usually when a champion of a
class is inactive the whole class suf
fers. This is hardly true of the 116'
118 pounders, who go merrily along as
if Pete Herman were not in existence,
Chicago's immediate vicinity has be
come the stamping ground for a lot of
good ones. Joe eurman threatens to
become one of the leading stars of the
country within a short time. His re
cent showings have been great and he
may soon step out as a real rival for
Pal Moore, another Chicatro star.
Earl Puryear, formerly of Denver.
is also making his home in the Windy
City. He is about as fast and as
tricky a little fellow as they make 'em,
He put up a sensational battle in Mem
phis recently with Pal Moore, and
was so good that a rematch was made
at once.
And another good prospect is Mike
Dundee of Rock Island, 111., the Sicil
ian boy who has done nearly every
thing asked of him.
Leonard Helps Country.
Benny Leonard, lightweight cham
pion of the world, has the distinction
of being about the only active boxer
of great prominence who has given
up his chances of commercializing his
title by accepting a position with the
government as a boxing instructor.
His services are so highly regarded
that he is spoken of by at least three
generals at Camp Upton as one of
the most valuable men they ever had.
It has been said that a great ma
jority of the boxers who have sim
iliar positions are either well fixed
financially or are at the end of their
ring careers. But Leonard is making
a big sacrifice.
He boxed at two -shows on the Pa
cific coast, the receipts of which went
to camp activities funds. He barely
got expenses. Leonard has also prom
ised to box in Chicago at a big Elks
benefit for one of the camp funds.
If Leonard can get away to do a
little training he probably will accept
an offer made to him recently to box
"Irish Patsy" Cline in New Haven
on July 4. Promoter Mulvihill told
Billy Gibson, Benny's manager, that
he will give Leonard a flat sum of
$20,0.00 for his end, the battle to be
20 rounds to a decision.
Gibson believes that the battle
should 'draw close to $100,000 and
bring out the Irish and Hebrew fac
tions. Gibson admits Cline is a hard
proposition, but ff Leonard gets in
proper shape, says he can best him.
Gibson said also that since Leonard
has been in the service he has had a
total of $70,000 offered him for his
end in smaller fights. He is one of
the most popular fighters who ever
stepped into a ring.

Ten Years in
Ability to Hit in the Pinches
Makes Californian Val
uable Man for Any
Red Sox Outfielder Continues
to Play Just as Good Base
Bali as When He
Broke In.
New York, May 18. When the
curtain drops on the current base
ball season, Harry Hooper, right
fielder of the Boston Red Sox, will
have rounded out ten years' service
in the major leagues. Players who
have lasted that long in the big
shtiw are few, yet Hooper is still one
of the mainstays of the Sox outfield
and is playiitg a brand of ball that
stamps him as one of the greatest
players of the game.
One thing that makes Harry u
great player is his ability to hit in a
pinch. Fans throughout the country
remember his famous one-handed
catch that made the world series of
1912 safe for the Red Sox. and his
home run drive in 1915 that broke
Philadelphia's heart and paved the
way to another world's champion
Many fans and critics figured that
Hooper was soon due to start his
downward slide to the minors or base
ball oblivion, but a glance at his
present batting average proves that
he is now at his best. Harry has
been slamming the ball at a .365 clip,
and although this mark is considered
higher than the general run of his
averages, it goes to show that he is
still there.
Is College Player.
Hooper began his base ball careerol
at M. Marys College in California.
His first chance in professional base
ball came when he signed with the
Oakland club xf the Coast league in
1907. lhe following year he was a
member of the Sacramento club of
the same league. In 1909 he was
signed by the Boston Red Sox, and
has played with that team ever since.
Hooper throws right handed, but
bats left handed. His nine-year
record in the majors is shown in the

Low Grade Fuel Has Made Necessary
Many Radical Departures From Old Design.
Not least among the factors that
contribute to the relative efficiency of
the modern motor car as compared
with its predecessors of a few years
ago, is the present day design of
manifolds. The efficiency of the
manifold has much to do with car
buretion efficiency, and this in turn
largely determines the power, econo
my, etc., of the engine. No other part
of the internal combustion engine has
undergone quite such revolutionary
changes within the last few years as
the manifolds, especially the inlet
Two considerations have forced
manifold design on the attention of
the engineers. One has been the in
sistent demand of the motoring pub
lic, ever since there has been such a
tiling, for economy of operation as
regards fuel and secondly the declin
ing quality of the gasoline that we
have been getting.
In the days when we got highly
volatile fuel that exploded without en
couragement of any kind, we could
afford to use' long exposed manifolds,
because the snappy gas of that time
had little tendency to condense on its
way to the cylinders. The long mani
folds of yesterday had certain merits,
principally their lack of sharp curves
which would interrupt the flow of
gas. But their length and exposed
position would make them impossible
with present day grades of fuel.
Perhaps the average car owner does
not know, or rather does not stop to
think, just what process the fuel goes
through before it reaches the com
bustion chamber. The fuel flows from
the gasoline tank through a pipe into
the carbureter, either directly or via a
vacuum tank. The fuel enters the
float bowl of the carbureter, where it
is passed through a very small open
ing. The partial vacuum that is
created in the cylinders by the move
ment of the piston, lifts the fuel into
the combustion chamber. Now if the
fuel is very light and highly explosive,
it flows into the combustion chamber
without trouble. But when it is
heavy, it does not flow readily, its
rate of now decreasing as its weight
increases. Everything knows that
cold tends to thicken oil of any kind,
gasoline as well as others. A fairly
good grade of fuel may leave the car
bureter pretty well volatilized, but
striking a cold surface, as the metal of
an exposed manifold, it will condense
on the walls and relatively little of it
will reach the combustion chamber.
This is the problem our engineers
have endeavored to solve.
One of the first methods bf improv
ing the manifold was that of putting
a jacket around the intake section at
some position near the cylinders and
passing either heated gases or hot
water around the manifold. Another
method was tried a little later of
bolting the carbureter directly to the
cylinder block, so that the heated gas
passage in the casting would supply
heat enough to vaporize the fuel. This
latter method is used to a great extent
One school of designers tried the
experiment of heating fuel before it
reached the carbureter. Still another
group favored the idea of heating the
papers. More photographs were
printed than a moving picture artist
gets today. The price paid was so
large that skeptics were many. They
sneered at the sum. "Utterly ridicu
lous," they scoffed. Facsimiles of
the check were published to prove
that the $22,500 was actually paid.
This afternoon at Rourke park,
O'Toole and Kelley, that famous
battery, will appear for the Omaha
club. It will be their first appearance
as a battery since they were in Pitts
burgh years ago. They're back to
gether again. But no longer prize
pippins in the big show. Time has
got in its deadly work. They're back
together again but it's out here in the
bush, in Omaha, and they'll work to
gether again today for, the first time
in more than eight years,
gasoline right in the carbureter. Both
these methods had certain disadvan
tages, from the fact that if fuel is
heated before it gets to the car
bureter or even in that instrument, it
still has an excellent chance of con
densing again on its way from the
carbureter to the combusion chamber,
unless additional means of keeping it
warmed is provided. If this latter is
done why not perform the whole op
eration after the gasoline has left the
In a number of recent designs the
inlet and exhaust manifolds have been
placed in close juxtaposition, with the
intention of having the heated gases
in the latter impart enough warmth
to the former to keep the fuel thor
oughly vaporized. In similar designs
the inlet manifold is made to pass
through the exhaust outlet at a single
point. While these designs seem to
give satisfaction, probably the most
efficient method of handling the proa
lem is found in the idea of incor
porating the inlet manifold within the
cylinder block, where it is practically
surrounded by a hot volume and is
close to parts that ordinarily run hot.
Another idea that contributes to ef
ficient carburetion is found in the fit
ting of the air pipe leading to the ex
haust pipe with a movable shutter,
whereby after the engine is hot, the
shutter may be opened to admit cold
air, so as to obtain exactly the right
condition for maximum fuel efficiency.
Last year there was a violent irrup
tion of manifolds commonly called
"hot spots." The name was accurate
ly descriptive, for it simply means
a spot in the inlet manifold maintained
at a high temperature so that the gas
in passing over it is warmed and made
highly volatile. It is a peculiar fact
that vaporized fuel does not take the
same course as liquid fuel. Gas o
vaporized fuel, because of its higher
kinetic values tends to travel in a
straight line until it strikes some ob
struction. If this obstacle is part of
the inlet system the liquid particles
remaining in the fuel will be vaporized
without affecting the mixture by un
duly expanding it. Which brings us
to consideration of another phase of
the matter. Hut before we leave the
"hot spot," let us point out that com
mon idea that this feature helps in
starting the cold motor is totally er
roneous. The hot spot does not Ret
hot until the engine has been running
for some time.
It is a curious idiosyncrasy of gaso
line fuel, that while it is more efficient
if it is warmed, the heat applied to it
must not be too high. If the heat ap
plied is too great it reduces the vol
umetric efficiency of the engine, for
the simple reason that heated air takes
up less space than the cold. If the fuel
is properly vaporized and is then
mixed with cold air, a fuel mixture of
maximum efficiency will be secured.
This is why a shutter permitting the
admission of cold air after the engine
is running helps carburetion.
With our present grades of fuel.
there is not much danger that too
high a degree of heat will be reached.
Especially is this so in cold weather,
