With' the new Champion 'on the Car - mania are his team mates of the American Invaders, Jim Barnes, Tom Kerrigan. George McLean, Emmett French, Freddie McLeod. Charles Hoftner and Wilfred Held,, Abe Mitchell and George DUnqan, two of England's "big four," are to arrive tomorrow on the Lapland for, an Invasion of Uncle Sam's links. The arrivals will have little time to get rid of their sea legs. Hutchison and names wm meet tne uriuiners Monday on the course of the Pelham Country club In Westchester. The English nalr will then hoi over to Shawnee-on-the-Delaware, Pa., with most of the American proa to play in an open tournament on. Wednesday and Thurs day. From there they will move. On Washington, where the American national open starts on Monday at the Columbia Country club. . Mitchell rj Duncan wilt then start on an exhibition tour. After his victory in the British cham - plonsnips, - wnicn was ine nrai ever scored by an American. Hutchison will enter the American tournament as the favorite. SPORTS th JOhl n o J riOC' Ju Jl JU I ssaaaaaaafasaaaaaaaaaaa - ! - ,H( n s M xlmmf1mmtf&mmW laat PPiassasaW fafaam jfe William Tllden, America's tennis champion, is a sportsman. Aa winner of the British tennis title )rM year Tllden was In the same fortunate position aa other champions of former years when time came to defend their titles. He did not have to work his war ud through the preliminary matches. Her waa to wait until all contenders had thrashed out the right to meet him. The survivor might be a little stilt and stale from hard competlon, while tie champion came In fresh and unwearied. This waa the British custom, but It didn't seem iulte a fair test, to Mr Tllden. So he aeked the tennis authorities to change the rule and, let him play in the preliminary matches It's hard to change custom In England. Any Engllahman thinks that the way a thing always haa been dona Is nesesaarily the best way to do It. So Mr. Tilden's request was turned down. But he had the satisfaction ot being a sportsman In th matter. Going Some! Oar Wood, holdor of tho Harmaworth Cup, which he brought back from England last year,ls preparing to defend the trophy against an Invading fleet aa well M" against several builders of fast boats In this country. His new defender Is nearly ready, and It la ssld ,up around Algonac, where Chris Smith and his sons hsva been busy with the Diuiaing ana tuning up tne renuut ui the Americans seemed to be looking them over. Ashore they were as mysteriously hidden as Carpentler's punch at Mannnsaet. But Bernard Smith saw the British defender after the race. His only oon.ri.ent on .British speedboat building waa: "fir the time the water ducks around all the sclentlflo curves and angles In that hull it II be sodlsiy It won't know how to get out." This waa a pretty good Comment on the difference between British and American boat aulldlng. Oar Wood's boats are , built to go over or through the water with the slightest skin friction and resistance possible, and by years of actual experiment, Chris Smith has obtained batter resulia than anv of the naval architects, with all their intricate calculations. Yankee .boatbullders didn't stop beating the rest of the world when slipper - rttpa went out of fashion. wine pack a punen. If there la another American heavy. eisnt cnamnionsnio noxinr d tween White and black boiers. erty motors, that this boat will be able to hold a nace of ela - htr miles an hour or better. The English, will hare to go some to beat that. Bernard Smith went to England with Gar Wood's two' contenders laat year. He found a lot of mystery about the British boats. Oar Wood's boats went out for trial runs', and when they came back were taken from the water and blocked up without any attemsX to hide any detail of their construction. ' Anyone could watch the trial runa and In spect the boats afterward, and acores of English builders went over the boats plank by plank ana made copious notes. "They'll show that they've learned something from us when their boats come over In 8eptember," says Oar Wood. The trial runa of the British boats were cut short and the boats run back to ahore at half speed whenever one of boxinr bout be k boxera. one of the contenders will be Harry Wills, This Wills Is a decent fellow, a great ooxer, pnysicany a marvel among men, and he has so much self - respect that he prefers hard work to loafing around trying to pick up a bout now and then, lie la nearly aa big aa such ring giants as. Fulton and Wlllard. and In better condition and a better boxer than either of them. Wills may be matched With Dempsey some time, and if that match la ever made It will draw a crowd and furnish a real battle If Wills was a white man nothing couia Keep mm out or a cnance to win the heavyweight title. He outclasses all the bunch except Dempaey, but when there la talk of champlonahlp bouts his name la discreetly forsotten. When Carpentler's manager went , to i nivnani n weea ueiore uiv ueiuu - sey fight to suggest that Carpentler be matched against some other American heavyweight In September, If he beat Dempsey, Descamps barred Fulton and Wlllard on the ground that they were too big., He didn't mention Wills at all But perhaps he never beard of Wills. Don't very often hear ef him ourselves. Tea Mueh Prosperity. Jack Johnson will soon be "out" and looking for something to do to replenish the larder. It may not be good form to mention Johnson But while we're on the subject I'll say Just thla muoti In Justice to him and then drop It YOu can't taka an Ignorant, lllltera - ate man, ot any color, put htm In a moment where thousands of tools scrape and bow to him and tell him how great he Is, and expect him to have sense Johnson was more of a dupe of clr - cumatancea than anything elae If he had stayed In Galveston ha might have been a first class, decent stevedore today and better off (Copyright 1(21 by Dell Syndicate, Ino ) NATIONAL LEAGUE Pittsburg, 6: Brooklyn. 1.

Borne very conservative baseball critics, with yeara of knowledge and experience, have said that It la Impobsiole to wis a major league pennant with young pitchers, assuming so large a part of the burden. They may' be rlghL There Is no ma - ior league pennant won to date fur lull iut there lias been such a remarkable howlng by the young pltcheri of the Pittsburgh club that It la time to get it recorded before they ' blow" and spoil It all. If they don't collapse so much the l - ctter for Pittsburgh. At te head t me Pittsburgh pithing clan is Cooper very much a Vetera i. who la having a regular satin lined time ot It. When the records were compiled recently he had won fourteen games and li - at two. That's more than Matty nnd aome ot the other stars were went to win When everybody talked pitchers to the exclusion of everything else. Next lo Cooper comes Ulaaner with about a six to one account In his favor as a wlnving I iichcr and thla la his luat year In the National League. Petty excellent figures those. It la true that he haa been taken out of some gamea but when you arlve him six to one you also rate him as the other pitchers are rated, so he Is getting none the beat of It. Yellowhorae, the Indian chief, has been winning for Pittsburgh on a fire to two basis and he is a kid pitcher. Never had a chance until this season with major league company. .Morrleon was pulled back from Birmingham, Ala , and Gibson shoved him. right Into the thick of battle and he has won twice, once In a thirteen Inning game. Nothing weak about that. Zlnn has broken even. He ri'.e been In major company herors but this Is the first time In the National Leagus and he la more or less unsessoned for big games. Of the old players Adami Is a seven to three shot on the winning - aide and Hamilton, used In lots of games, ats dpne the tame thing, , Pittsburgh may be establishing Itself as the great exoeptlob from the young pitcher standpoint.
