A storm of criticism has burst
forth in England oyer the selections.
It made itself manifest a few days
ago when F. M. B. Fisher, a famous
New Zealand player, who has re
sided a number of years in England,
was requested to participate in the
test matches the outcome of which
would determine the final selection of
the four nominations for the British
Isles team. Fisher promptly de
clined, stating that his reason was
based upon his lack of confidence in
the selection committee and its judg
ment. Fisher, who formerly held an of
ficial position in the Australian asso
ciation, came bodly forth in an open
letter which has , threatened an up
heaval in. the British Lavyn Tennis

Dear Sir! ' .
It 1 our Infirm belief that Roughtown

around him like a secret around a
sewing circle..,' It was as one-sided
as a one-legged rocking chair.
Slim met the Koughtown im
presario oh the night that Gink was

meant he had to put the bulldoze
on 15 birds or the deadheads would
get their complimentary tickets back.
Slim' was tfe'e fifteenth waffle to step

cash customer. It looked like Gink

feated Kansas in a dual track meet

prise" of the day by copping first
honors in the 100 and 220, against fc
strong field of Kansans, and Deering,

seconds by four watches. He was
helped a little by the wind, but hin
dered somewhat by the heavy track.
Bradley, Kansas Olympic athlete,
failed to cause any such stir as was
expected. He took only one first,
in the broad jump. Wright, Nebras

shotput and discus.

Why The Seconds
At Mat -Matches?
Queries Old Fan
"I notice that they propose as a
reform in wrestling to bar the head
lock," said one of those fans who
long have followed the grappling
game. "While they are about it
they might as well slip the hook to
tht toe hold. That hold, in my
opinion, is evcji worse and never
should have been permitted. How
ever, it is about time that something
was done to place the sport on a
more scientific basis and abolish all
the disagreeable features in connec
tion with it
"One thing' which they surely
ought to abolish is those senseless
seconds at wrestling matches. Why
a. second at a wrestling match? I
never could quite make that out.
Vou have seen. him march down the
aisle accompanying a wrestler to the
ringside and there his service ends.
'"The wrestler goes to work with
his opponent, and while it might last
several hours the second just stands
near the corner with nothing to do
but take up valuable space and ob

Be Stopped In
.Coaches Have Much to Do
With Bailing an Official
Up to Mentor to Stop
Unless step's are taken to prevent
baiting of officials at all contests, es
pecially basket ball and base ball," in
tercollegiate athletics may receive a
severe setback within the next few
years. This is escpecially true in the
middlewest, where the Western con
ference is the leading university as
sociation. This baiting of officials is brought
on by coaches, captains and players
and in turn by student bodies, whitT
are always eager to follow the lcao
of a contestant or those engaged in
the development of teams. At times,
it has approached the rowdy stage,
and there are a few cases where
basket ball officials have had to se
cure protection when leaving the
Disposed to "Ride" Officials.
Instead of treating officials with
respect as they should he the av
erage run of student bodies too often
is ready to start "riding" the arbi
ter.s the moment a contest is started.
The coach and players generally are
the first to get after the officials, and
tlrr only serves to arouse the stu
dent rooters, who always believe
their players or coach are in the
right. . .
In the great majority of cases the
compensation received for acting as
an official in any sport seldom rec
ompenses the men for their time and
trouble. Most of the Big Ten arbiters
work the games because of their love
for the sport and acquaintances they
make on various trips. All are men
of standing, whose judgment in busi
ness is not questioned and wliec
honesty is above comment.
Help Keep Sport a Success.
It is questionable what would hap
pen to college athletics if thesmen
who officiate for the love of the sport
would suddenly retire. Other offi-,
cials would be secured, but it , is a '
question if they would handle the
contests with the seriousness of their
A professor at one of the Big Ten
universities who has followed inter
collegiate athletics closely for 25
years is authority for the statement t
that intercollegiate athletics will be
curbed within a few years by. the
faculties unless a more hospitable at
titude is shown toward officials.
"It is not right that these men,
who 'handle our contests in such
splendid fashion, should suffer abuse
from student bodies," the professor
said. "In my 25 years of intimate
connection with Big Ten athletics I
do not know of a single case whee
an official's honesty has been ques
tioned. I have met most of them,
have talked with them, and know
they act in various capacities because
they love the sport and are eager to
see it grow and improve.
Up to the Coaches.
"This baiting of officials should be
stopped, and the persons to curb it
are tlfe coaches. Students must re
member that officials are selected by
coaches of the contesting teams, and
as such should be acceptable to them
the student bodies. The arbiters
make mistakes at times, but they are
not intentional. 1
"The umpire behind the plate is a
better judge of a ball or strike-than
the studHnt-in the stand. He also is .
in a better position to know when
a base runner is safe or out. and no
matter how close 'the play all should
abide by .the ruling. I would like
to see some action taken along these .
lines, because intercollegiate athlet
ics are too great a necessity to be
ruined by a condition which easily
can be remedied."
Arguments Out of Place.
There are some base ball coaches
who believe their players are not the
real articles unless they have con
stant arguments with the umpires.
This may be the game as taught in
professional base ball, but it is not
needed in college. .
In track and field athletics the of
ficials serve without pay. They give
up a night at home with their fam
ilies or leave their place of business
early in order to attend a cet of
games. . Hardly a meet passes into'
history but some uncomplimentary
remarks are made to some official
because of a decision.
The foot ball arbiters are blamed
because they will not allow plays
which are illegal or call fouls tor
holding when a certain player mo
mentarily stops an opponent by use
of his arms. In most of such cases
the coaches are directly to blame
for not taking the matter up with
the officials before the game to find
out how they would be rufed; in
stead of trying to get by on the
Says Tobin Most ,
Cleveland, O., May 8. Pitchct
James Bagby, who led all pitchers
in organized base ball last year with
31 victories for the Cleveland Amer

the most scientific batsman in thu
country and a worthy successor to
Willie Kceler. who led the National f
league in 1897 with a batting aver

. Bagbyays Tobin has the ability
to hit the ball as far as other heavy
hitters, can bunt more skillfully than
most of them and places his hits
with more accuracy than any other
player in the American league.
