England's decision to lengthen the,"seaSon, the dates of which. have jnst"-been';announced, shows ·what Importance English authorities lay irpon the improvement of the breed of horses in war times. - Horses are essential even In this great conflict of machines and it Is through racing that the breeding industry thrives and is kept alive.'" If the war contiiraea through 1919 an even longer season than that sanctioned for neit year, will undoubtedly be In order. The English government did not ctrr- tall~ thoroughbred racing- In order to 'conserve grain supplies alone, as many 'turfmen in this country are under the Impression. It was realised that the .horses"would have.-to, eat..pnder any ·circumstances, and the only way to save fodder.

As'.a.means ol physical development and recreation; rowing ,hns always held a deserred promJ- nencG in the athletic life of-the tinder- gradoate. There Is, moreover, nnder the present conditions, nn additional and pressing need for a continuation of the upbuilding of the collegian both from a bodily and mental standpoint. I know of no better form o* exercise to help to achieve this than rowing ivJth its demand for a perfect co-crdJ- natlon, of mind and body in the Individual onrsman and the crew as a whole. To Continue Rowing. That this is thoroughly realized by those in chnrge of athletics at the various colleges, which have sent crews to both Ponghkeepsie and New London In.recent years, Is shown by the plans to continue r6wing, even though In a modified form, during the coming season. There will be both, indoor and open water training for the oarsnicn at Colmnbia, Cornell, Pennsylvania, Yale, Harvard and Syracuse. Interclass and college regattas will be held and under certain conditions there Is a possibility of some intervarslty competition, although not upon as Important a scale as that which marts college rowing In normal times. Interest In Sport. Fall practice was held at a majority of the institutions which have supported-crews in the past arid reports from nil these centers indicate pint tho students evinced marked Interest in the sport, when the number of unusual activities which, are now a port of regular college work are taken into consideration. That tlilg same Interest and enthusiasm will continue throughout the winter and increase with the coming of spring appears quite certain. Rowing will be supported so long as it doos not Interfere with the more Important duties of the zmdergrmlnate in hts relation to his college and the country nt large, and those In charge of tho sport can be counted upon to see the tianger line Is not overstepped. .

The Federal promotprs sought to remove certain equipment, including tho- grhmlHtiuHl chairs ami the park owners claimed them an improvements. The court decided otherwise, permitting removal of the choirs. The owners get the grandstand, bleachers and tho fences. FtfOTBAEL MEN IN SERVICE! Twenty-Two Members cf .Yale Team ] Ar« Now.

JACK MILLER AND WIFE ENLIST FOR WAR WORK WHY GOLF GAME IS POPULAR! One Sport Where Individual I* Su- premo and Mistakes of Opponent Do Not Aulst. Golf in the one game where the Individual Is supreme. No matter hovr poorly ono man plays, the other cannot win" unless he himself plays better. The mistakes of one player do not themselves rid the other unless he avoids making the some or otker errors. The tennis plnyer scores when the other plnyer drives out of bounds or into the net. The football team tallies when the pnnt is dropped or the boll Is fnmbled. A dropped fly ends mnny a baseball gnme when victory seems sure for the other side. And so on !n every sport bnt one, and that is golf. If the one golfer drives ont of botradfl nr tops bla drive or shoots Into trap the other man benefits not at all unless he plays better coif.
