PAGE FOUR CUNNINGHAM IN GOOD WITH ALL THETMCKFANS . A. A, JJ.f However, Thinks He Beats Venzke by Use i Of Mirrors Maybe By Charles A. Grmnich. (Associated Press Sports Writer.) Whatever it takes to convince the ; hierarchy of the Amateur Athletic union, the Kansas boy Glenn Gun- nlngham apparently lacks, but what It takes to put it across to the track Tans he has in quantities. . The Jayhawk miler from the Cimarron kept Gene Venzke off the Unit'ed States Olympic team by running the 1500-raeter race faster than the Pennsylvanlan. The Olympic management, which dovetails with that of the A. A. U., thought he did it with mirrors or something and was all for giving Venzke or some- i one else the assignment. Brutus K. Hamilton took it up with, Lawson '. Robertson, the Olympic head coach, and through his efforts Cunningham was allowed to run the 1500 and was the first United States run- ncr to finish. Cunningham wont cast this winter and won the Wanamakcr mile In the Mlllrose A. A. games with a ten-yard advantage over Venzke. Tlie A. A. U. was getting together a seVen-man track team for a Euro• pcan tour—expenses paid and all that. Before Cunningham had an V opportunity to clinch his argument with Venzke, the A. A. U. amiounced . Venzke was to be the miler on the 1 trip. Venzke had the best time in the books but he couldn't duplicate ; It'ori the boards. . ^ , Cunningham, who can run a con- siderable; half-mile and a two-mile J jaunt on occasion—doubling in -jbrass, wood winds, and on the tym: panl—went cast |again and beat Venzke by ten yards again at the ; mile distance. The time wasn't so , good. as it was in the Wanamakcr ' r mile but the ten-yard span was the : same and the Wanamaker aiiid Baxter miles are each 1760 yards, or 5280 feet long. , " ' Maybe Cunningham didn't care - about a leisurely boat ride to Eu- ;ropc;' The.favored Venzke has said ; he Is trying to regain the "kick" he . used to. run dowTit' the opposition ] when he was at thei peak. ; The United States Golf associa^ tion and the Lawn Tennis association have had the same difficulties, iwith the athletes, over whom they rule. The 'tennis lilgher-ups, who used to conduct an annual losing battle with BiU TUcieri, neglects at .times to • rate ^ch| stars as Helen -Wills Moody, explaining they have "insufficient data." 'A. little searching around would turn up a lot of data on Mrs. Wills's tennis ability. The golf association relented 50 "per cent summer after announcing a Walker piip team which did not Include Gus Moreland or ..Johnny Goodman. | Moreland was taken into the select company after beating several members of the team in the western at j Chicago, but Goodman's clamorings for recognition went unheard.

WILLIAM BRAUCHER The Legend of Corbett pROBABLY R was the Corbelt •• family cow that first gave Jim Cotbett the idoa that he would like to become a gentleman. Cor- bi'ii -fpcnt his early youth in Sau Kiaiici.sco-. The cable cars that rin along Market street marked I lie boundary between two dis- ti'?icls known as "north of tlic • ^liot" and "south of the slot." .Corbett was raised, on the -;;(nithern side, in the same neigh- l>orhood that produced David _nela.sco, David Warfield, Tad Dor- uan. the fighting Brills and olh- who lifted themselves to fame. Jim was still very much of a bay when the Corbetts moved nwlh oC the slot. On this voyage )io, was made commandant of the lamlly cow. It was an assignment that gave him great dls- j;i (8t. Tlie lad'nlread.v had begun to wash himself behind the ears, and he aspired to nobjer things'. _ - ••«'.• . Father Helped, Too J I.M'S father also had a Iiand in ^forming, the .young fellow's miiid along, gentlemanly lines. The elder Corbett decided that Jim should rise above tlie livery stable that earned the family's bread and butter. 'lie gave Jim iin .education in accounting with the' plan of .seeln«( him one day a f^rc-at banker. Jim's father was a 'lironid nian when the boy put on his' white collar and started lo work a.t the Hibernla bank. - Jim was delicate as a young- stoF. Once a doctor thumped the liny's cheit and told the father that Jim was not likely to live Tiiore than, a year. That was whijn the young gentleman was S .v'^ars OJU. . • 'file plin that wa.s to correct the. doctor's appraisal developed I in jim'a head when the boy saw- Edward Payson Weston arrive in Frisco after hiking across the coui)try. The boy took up hiking. V.oston's timely arrival saved a The Choynski Incident rpnEIlIC arc times when even'the . vi^ry lincst of gentlemen must unbend. That was especially true in that part of Frisco where Jim had his oajly schooling. It was a land filled with turmoil. Especially was there a great deal of racial strife and bickvrin^. A few streets away from the Corbotl home, there lived a boy named Joe CJhoynski who was champion of the Jewish district. The Irish and Jewish younc men could become very ungentlemanly at times toward one another, and Jim was never one to run away from . an affair between gentlemen. • The argument reached a point wheie Joe and Jim Went out/into the hills one Saturday afternoon and fought it out. Jim won, and that light gave him his start tow.nrd tlio heavyweight championship. Years later Corbett and Choyn­ ski fought again—in what has become the classical."Bloody Battle of the Barge" near Benecia, Calif. After 2 6 ferocious rounds, the Jabbing gentleman named Jim felled Choynski live times and the sponge went flying in. w « « The Corbett Code J IM COilBETT adhered throughout all the years to a gentlemanly code. It was not merely because Nie wore- the best of clothes that the sports world gave him that honorable title. After Corbett had beaten John L. Sullivan, it was said that if he ever came to Boston he would be mobbed, such was the Irish love for their old idol. But Gentleman. Jim went straight to Boston ,an"d won the admiration of those, who had expressed their hate for him. That was a victory he did not score with his fists, but because COLONY.
