"'AGE'SIX i!l.YTHF'A'LLLK. English Array Honcful of . Upsetting Tradition ; Will Have Hard Time. To Defend U. S. Polo Honors RV WILLIAM NEA Srvlec S perls Editor NEW YORK.— The British have challenged America tor the International Polo Cup tills year nnd they are sending over some very • Iplcnted young chops with nljout 5250,000 worth of horws for the chaps to ride upon, so they mils: be in earnest nbout it. • .Though the BritWi linvc failed in Iheir last three ntlempts— over :i nine-year period— to wrest ilie trj- phy from the Hilchcocks, Mllbiins. et. al., American polo people ;j'e ver>} much up in turns and in stir- nips determined to si'c what, sin! 1 he done nbout it. Lo:ig which is the heart ol the horsej croquet industry, has been ngoi with preparations Tor the big ruckus that begins when the riders tee up on .Sept. C at International Field. Polo players and followers from all ; parts of the world have been gathering at the Long Island clubs, whirling Iheir mallets in the lest matches. From Argentine- comes Jack Nelson, leader of South American polo. Asia, oddly enough. Is represented by (he dashing Cuptaln Roark; Australia has sent the picturesque A'htons. Others are arriving from day to day, participating in one of the world's most expensive snorts nnd trying out the caliber of the American candidate. At this date it seems fairly ccr- lain that Captain Tommy Hitch' cock, wearing sundry bullet scnvs us badges of his courage as n World . War flyer, will ride ns one of the American four. When I say ride 1 don't mean merely ride, I mean RIDE. Since Devereanx Mlllnmi broke his shoulder two years ago when he was thrown in .1 drag nt Aiken, Tommy hns been the greatest polo player in the world. This year,- as captain, lie has full charge of the American defense. In Ihk ••' case the Word defense Is. spelled f-i-g-li-t. The official announcement of the American team is t<* be withheld. I understand, until the eve of the clash with Britain. But the makeup of the Yankee team is likelv to produce no such surprise as Connie; Mack's selection of Howard Ekmke to pitch the world series opener at Chicago last fall. Polo players are rated accovdiiij; to their potential scoring ability.

The names'Bosekc and Hopping have bobbed up frequently in polo affairs, but to many of the easterners and poloists from foreign parts, the monicker of Cecil Smith will have n strange ring. Smith is n seven-goal player from Austin, Tex. and h\slead of chasing the pill around on n pony. Cecil used to ride some> very harsh "herd on various bevies of Longhorns in the Lone Star'. Stale.

Harry Payne Whitney. Devcreaux Milburn and Tommy Hitchcock I have done much to change the pub- j lie-mind to an admiration for one , of the most speclaciilsr and siren- 1 uour. games on the long list of I sports conlests. WWtney organized the international expedition of 1909,the first, to beat Great Britain. It coil him millions but he did plant the seed of polo widely. Milburn's magic on the polo field never, will be forgotten; the change he brought, to polo was as great TVS Maurice McLoughUn worked in the tennis game. He was the first to regard his position at back as not m*ely a defensive post, but carried his fight to the shadow of the enemy's goal. - Then, last but not least. Hitchcock—riding horecs since he was three years old—marching to the wars in France though only n— shot to earth by German marksmen of the air—leaping from a speeding passenger truin to escape his Hun captors—liockcy player, golfer, boxer— today at 30 one of America's fiijesl specimens ol ath- leiic manhood. The British may lie very much In earnest about challenging a hell- for-lcallier battle of mallets. I don't see how they can win!
