By JAMES C. O'LEARY ST PETERSBURG, Fla. Feb 26 The battery men of the Boston Braves reached the "sunshine city" today. Those who left Boston at 7:25 Sunday night arrived on schedule time at 7 this evening, and the whole bunch will, weather permitting, begin their training: stunts at Seaside Park tomorrow, under the direction of Manager Bancroft and Coaches Charlie Farrell, Dfck Rudolph and Arthur Devlin. There has been more rainy weather in Florida this Winter than In several years, and it lias been particularly bad hereabouts. Those of the. Braves who came from i New England and New York ran into a rain storm up in North Carolina on Monday afternoon and the further South they came the heavier the precipitation. Upon reaching Jacksonville, they learned that it had been raining there for the past two days. Shortly after leaving Jacksonville, the train ran out of the tail end of the storm. The grounds at Seaside Park are sodden and there is some doubt about being In condition tomorrow even if there is no more rain. There was a big crowd at the railroad station, Including many New Engenders, to welcome the players. Larry Benton, "Mickey" O'Nell and Red Lucas came in this morning with others due on later trains tonight. The city has several new hotels sinco last year, and they are parked to the ' limit, ana tieyona the limits or comfort. Frank Linane, a prominent business man of Lawrence, who with Mrs Linane is on a short Southern trip which may I take In Havana, called at the special j car of the Braves for a visit last night. ne went aown tne east coast tnis morning, but expects to take in St Petersburg before returning North. r-n i in i ' - NEW YORK, Feb 26 The official challenges of two Oriental Nations, Japan and China, for the 1924 Davis Cup, were received today by the United States Lawn Tennis Association.

W00DL0CK In one of the closest dual meets of the Winter. Huntington School defeated Harvard '27. 35 to 33. at the Boston T. M. C. A. indoor track yesterday afternoon. The school boys were forced to extend themselves in order to accomplish the feat. Harvard '27, which was behind. ti to 13, after four events had been run off, made a gallant, uphill fight and came within two points of tying the score. Practically all the races were decided at the tape. The 46-ya.rd dash was won by inches only, the 300-yard run resulted in a dead heat, the fiOO-yard run was captured by four yards, the 1000-yard run was won by Ave yards and the relay by a couple of yards. The 1000-yard run, in which TVllliam Dooley of Huntington School, and Ellsworth Haggerty, Harvard '27, Boston Latin star of a year ago were the chief battlers, was the outstanding event. Dooley was not only compelled to break lis own record, but also lowered the "Y" record of -m it 3-Ss held by John Loero, former Huntington School athlete. Forced to Best Efforts Dooley covered the distance in 2m, i 1-os. Haggerty forced him as he had never been forced before. It was a race of thrills. Not until the final straightawav to the tape was reached ras it at all certain that th Huntington School athlete would finish ahead. Haggerty was out in front at the gun and he managed to keep from two to three yards ahead of Dooley until the third last lap. Then Dooley succeeded in passing the Harvard performer, but only nraintalned the lead for a short time, Haggerty again moving into first place. Haggerty was leading Donley when the final lap was started. The nair fought it out almost shoulder to shoulder until the back straightaway was reached. Then Dooley sprinted, pass-liig Haggertv and gradually opened up a gap of five yards, the mapgin by Which he won. In a previous dual meet held at Huntington School, Dooley covered 1000 yards In 2m, 28 3-5s, which broke the old mark of 2m, 29s. held jointly by Curtis Par- - and Clarence Archibald. Dooley's familiarity with tho "Y" banks and track aided him somewhat, Haggerty's exhibition was an excellent one and he bids fair to develop into one of the best varsity half milcrs since the days Of Billy Binsham. The SW-yari run brought out a strong Mid. The flghl for the first corner was keen. Going lo tin- bactestretch before IV second corner was reached, Carl Lundell. Harvard '27. was out in front for a short, time. Then Burns managed to T.-orm his way into the lead. They '''0d in that order the remainder of Hie distance, with Burns having a little on Lundell. When Hi. gun lap sounded Burns was Kill i:i front, hut of) the home straightaway I.undell came like a deer, overcoming the Huntington runner's mar-fin. Tlicv broke the tape on even terms. The. judg, s declared it a dead heat. Stirring Competition The 60ft-vard run was fought out be-t'-en Gordon Clark of Huntington School and Hoger Magoun. Harvard, a former Huntington athlete. -Magoun Wenr Into th. loud norlv in t h A rp He endeavored to run Clark off his HEALY AWARDED TROPHY AS BEST WILLIAMS MAN Special DlapHtcn to the Globe WILLIAMSTOWN, Feb 26 Allan Healy, '24, of Chicago, was today awarded the Brooks memorial trophy, given annually to the Williams football player who is regarded as the most valuable man to the team during the season. Healey has played three years at end and was captain of the Purple last Fall. He is also a member of the varsity swimming team. The Brooks trophy is named for Capt Bellvidere Brooks of New York, a former Williams football leader, who was killed in France. First place in the flnai of the 40-yard dash went to Howard Burns of Huntington over Alfred H. Miller, Harvard. 27, by inches only. Gordon Clark of Huntington nosed out Carl Lundell of Harvard. '27, for third place. It is the second time in as many years that Burns has won over Miller. He beat him representing Kxeter last Winter when Miller was at Worcester Academy. Eric Hansen. Huntington, proved his superiority over the hurdlers when he took first place over his teammate. Wood, and Weinsteln of Harvard in the fast time of 6s. First place in the running high jump was won by H. A. 'Secrist and D. H. Moyer, both of Harvard, '27, at 6ft 51n. The 12-pound shotput went to Carl Ludnell of Harvard, '27, who made a heave of 42ft in. Gorman. Huntington, finished second over Hilgour and .Miller of Harvard, doing 40ft "Vfcin, his best performance. In the relay race, the final event, Harvard, '27, went to the fore when Secrist led Carney of Huntington to a couple of yards. Ellsworth Haggerty of Harvard opened up a good gap on Aimone of Huntington. Fred Eaton of Harvard. '27, handed over three yards to Carl Lundell, his anchor man. Lundell managed to keep ahead of Clark throughout, although the latter challenged him on several occasions. When they reached the straightaway of the home stretch Lundell was forced to extend himself to beat Clark at the tape by a couple of yards.

GONZALES 0FSTAUL TRADED TO BROOKLYN CINCINNATI, Feb 36 Mike Gonsales, ex-Cincinnati Red catcher, was purchased from St Paul today by the Cincinnati Club for Brooklyn, and will go to that city the coming season. Charlie Dressen, third baseman of the St Paul team, was also purchased In the same deal, but will likely remain at St Paul this year. Herb McQuaid, Cincinnati pitcher, goes to St Paul. "The deal is a part of a three-cornered trade." Pres Hermann said today. "It is not completed yet. Other Red players may be Involved." Harvard's varsity baseball squad held Its initial workout of the 1924 season in the cage yesterday afternoon with a squad of more than 30 fielders reporting to Coach Slattery and Capt Percy Jenkins for a light limbering-up workout, while the pitchers and catchers, who have been reporting to Fred Mitchell for the past month-, handled the ball in giving the fielders bunting and fielding practice. Joe McGlone, the. sophomore all-round athlete, reported for the first time yesterday and is being groomed for a regular berth at third base. L. O. V. Mann, his chief rival and regular third baseman on the 1925 freshman team, also was ,out for the lirst time. The men will work daily from now on. A division will be made this afternoon so that they will report In two squads to facilitate the work. The prospects for the team received a boost when Alan S. Rogers and Leonard Larrabee reported for practice after .beine out of college last Fall. Rogers who played on his freshman nine in the Spring of 1921, was a member of the varsity souad in 1922 and figured in several varsity games as a left fielder, alternating with Lew Gordon. Last year he attended Magdalene College, Oxford, where was a member of the second intra-mtiral crew, but was unable to play baseball. His return to Harvard helps the team, as Gordon is the only regular outfielder back in college. Slattery is counting; on Rogers to play regularly this Spring along with Lee Todd, a big freshman of 'last year. Leonard Larrabee made his letter last Spring as a substitute catcher to Ray Keegan In the Yale series. Larrabee caught several games as regiil-ir in the early part of tne season ana is Dcmg He is now in better Spring doubtful. trim than ever. Larrabee will have a stiff fight on his hands to keep the regular job as Dolph Samborski now on the basketball team. Thorvald Sanchez and Jack Maher, captain of the freshman nine last Spring, are all going to be out there fighting for the berth. The freshmen will report tomorrow night for their gettogether meeting in the Smith Halls common room. Plans for the season will be arranged.
