Hank Gowdy is 'amonj; the soldiers Jn the Ohio 'National Guard and the chances are he win be In Europe be. fore time comes' to play baseball. Jim ' Scott also is in the army. · ". But the big leaguers probably will "find their "accustomed jila'ces in the ,'limelight usurped to a .certain extent in the army, for tile amnteurs are go~ Ing to carry more weight with the people. Lads who never played baseball Jo any great extent are going to try "their hands at blossoming into stars. ' The Cfark Griffith bat and boll fund and efforts of the" two big leagues are going to .make the camp and naval baseball possible. Thousands of dollars have been spent for equipment to be placed in the camps, nnd already much of it has been put to a good use, '" In the' Southern camps baseball has been possible through most of the chilly months. The Northern camps will ftt into action later. Tafca Game to Europe. " The National league has equipped ·cmtal warships at its own expense ·with baseball paraphernalia, and the men aboard these defenders of the^na- tton are not only enjoying the game themselves, bat are taking it into Europe. - Amatenr organtalon 5 all over tnef coontrj- have taken up the wort of ·· ptttftBg baseball on a rial footing In UK, tamps, nnd the probability Is teams In · these organizations will play a · «**lulo with, camp teams. ATHLETICS FOR ALL JACKIES Great~Lake» Station Plans to Give Ev. cry Sailor. Chance to Demonstrate :. : -.-_ ·:.'· nit swit. Dr.:J. B. Kanffrnan, athletic officer at the Great Lakes naval station, believes in giving-erery sailor a chance to get in sports. " He doesn't believe in confining athletics to the.' few who naturally were skilled enough to-make the representative teams. .That's why Great Lakes will house an Inter-regiment basketball league this season. ..According to tho plans, there will be 12 qolntes playing that represent various branches and regiments of the station. ".The drill.halls, one on the main station, one. in Camp Perry, and one in Camp Dewey, have been divided Into j basket courts. so there will .be 'plenty \ of room for all. In Camp Perry, which ; has a hall 200 yards long, six courts j have been constructed. Dewey has I four, and the main camp two. j STENGEL WILL BE BIG | HELP TO PIRATE TEAM I Profeaaor Voting of .Cornell Btamea Spontaneous Exertion for Bad Re- ·tilts-^-Lenflth of Race Given u Objectionable. The records In. the department of physical culture at Cornell university do not show that any of the oarsmen ; who have rowed In Courtney's crews have ever suffered from heart trouble brought on by rowing. In fact. Prof. Charles V.jP. Young,.head of the physical department, asserts that the Cor- i .nelT oarsmen, physically, are the best j 'type of men developed; Be says that ; ^enlargement of the heart cnused by. athletics Is not Itself a danger cad 'does not think 1 that the contention that rowing injures the heart Is sound. Danger From Rowing.' . , In refutation Mr. Young presents the -following argument: "The danger from rowing, as .from most other strenuous forms o( activity, comes from the improper preparation and "too sudden discontinuance of active exercise, .From my observation of its eltects upon Cornell oarsmen I should suy that physically'they ore the best type of Men turned out and the statistics which are available, if they be desired, corroborate this statement. These statistics will also prove in a great measure that the -oarsman p has the-promise of longer life than the average student ' / M In this connection it might be mentioned that at the fortieth anniversary of the founding of Cornell university j every member of her first victorious j crew of T5 was present and'looked fit · to take his place in the boat and com- j pete .with any crew of similar age ' which might be gathered together. Length- of Rice Objectionable. "To my mind the objection to intor- collegiate rowing, as at present conducted. Is the'length of the race. While ' the same danger arises from a two or ! three-mile race. If not properly pre-! pared for, the period of training need j not be so extended, and I think all the ; coaches connected with rowing, Mr.' Courtney among the number, are as | one in saying that the present distance of four miles requires too (6ng and arduous a period of training for those who are supposed to be attending the institution .primarily for study. "That is where the commercial element enters into rowing, as in other collegiate sports, for the only reason I have heard for the continuing of the four-mile race at Poughkeepste Is that more people will go. to sec a race of that distance than a three-mile race." The cold weather lias popularized ice yachting RS never before. Ice boating Is DOW the king ot winter sports, the Jast drop in the way, of tbrJils, An ice boat is the fastest nature-propelled vehicle under the sun. They actually go faster than the wind. Flights of 30'an.d SO miles an hour are not uncommon, nnd some have attained a speed of 100 miles an honr. It speeds along as easily and lightly as a bird, sometimes rearing at an le of 45 degrees until but one runner remains on the Ice. The sensation is angle of Indescribable. scribable. . . The photograph shows a thrilling moment during a race on the Shrews- y river course. One boat is driving head into the wind while about to bury make e turn* J. W1LLARD WILL DO HIS OWN PROMOTING HARRY MORRISSEY TO TRAIN i WOULD LIKE TO BE SHERIFF. I Orvl« Overall, Former Cub Pitcher, Aspires to Office In Califor- 1 nia County. Orvie Overall, former Cub pitcher In the halcyon days of Frank Chance and at varying times a rice planter, soldier of fortune, oil magnate, instructor In baseball at his own school, a football coach and football itiot of the University of California, has thought up a new wrinkle to add to his exploits.

With Stengel, Max Carey and Lee King guarding the outer defenses, the Pittsburgh club will be more formidable In this respect than it has been for several years. Carey, of course. Is one o( the greatest' outfielders In the game, and King, though a youngster, gives promise of'developing into a pretty good player. --^ Bill Hlnchman, 'who -sustained .a 'broken leg last'season, and who w«s. bii the shelf most of the time, has recovered from the Injury and may give King a flght for a'reEniar'berth in. the outfield. He will also be valuable as a pinch hitter. PLAY AT ARMY CANTONMENTS Washington American League Team Arranges for Exhibition Game* at Training. Camp*. .
