James Ockenden, French open champion and Havers' team mate in exhibition contests, will caddy for the British' champion today. Mike Menosky, outfielder of the Boston Bed Sox, Is to pass from the majors after a long stay in which he seldom played' the role of regular. Menosky never quite fulfilled expectations, for when he first joined the majors be gave promise of being a star. There was one laudable feature of Menosky's play, lie always gave his very best. - · o---The most celebrated golf team in America, Hagen and Kirkwood, have come to a parting of the ways--a temporary parting at least. Kirkwood has teamed up with MacDon-- aid Smith, the California pro,, while " Tagen has gone elsewhere to find new golf lag glories. Kirkwood is popular on the coast, due to his impressive showing "in. the California open,last winter. The past season was a. golden harvest for runners and harness horses. The rich sum of $9,500,000 was raced for by the runners with New Yorlc and Kentucky tracks putting up'the bulk. The Grand Circuit and half-mile tracks hung up- 82,000,000 in purses for the boys to shoot at, · · --o -The longest-run of the 1923 football season was made by Marks, an Indian University substitute. Marks sprinted 1'06 yards for a touchdown In the brush with Handover. It was the longest dash In several, seasons and incidentally ranks right alongside of the greatest the pastime has witnessed.

NEW YORK, Jan. 25.--The old. old debate about the value of college football has bobbed up again at Prineeton- Dr. Stuart Patoa came out recently with a statement declaring that unless the game was greatly modified, it soon would be abolished. He placed the blame _for the conditions against which he complained apon the alumni. Now comes Dr. Kennedy , of the same university with a whole-hearted defense of the game. , Meantime-- as has been the case since the 13th century-- football continues to bulk big In public Interest, [inside and outsid? the colleges. And, it might be added, furnishes the financial wherewith all to run the oth; er sports. Yes, it will not be abolished. o It would have been well for those who feel that athletics, and particularly football, shorten the lives of participants, to have been present at the Wesleyan dinner at the Commod- orse last week when "W's" were conferred on their team of four decades ago. which on November 1, 1884, de feated Harvard 16 to 0.' Only two of that' team are dead, despite the fact that in those days Wesleyan had the temority to play Yale not once, but three times a year! Another "Impossibility" has dropp^ ed to -the level of the commonplace-^~ swimming the English Channel. Three anrned the trick last year, and it is jteedlcted more will do it next summer. The 1923 trio were Henry Sullivan and Charley Toth, Americans, and Enrique Tirabocchi, a South -'American. Manager Lee Fohl of the Boston Red Sox is pinning much hope on Outfielder , Boone to come through for him. Boone, a great hitter In the minors, once received a short trial with the New York Giants. He is one of the biggest men to ever break into the majors, being over six feet _ and weighing well over 200 pounds: « 0 : Manager Murphy has given forth the gladsome tidings at last- He will begin assembling his players about March 24 or 25 and the team Trill begin getting in shape for nest season. Herb means to produce another pennant winner if "money and hard work" will do it. That beinp the case another pennant winner can be expetced. ^ There Is assurance that three o* last year's club will be back. They · are R«sco, Regan and Harr/s. Others may be here but these the only ones Muhph is sure of. Various and sun- j dry new men will be tried out.- Many | of "the new men come highly recom-j mended. Murphy has been doing j some intensive scouting- and his widej acquaintance among, baseball meni has enabled him to get in touch with a number of first-class ball tossers. Murphy expects to arrive in. town about the first of March and will be at his old residence for the coming year. Everything looks rosy for a good season at the local ball yard and impatience for the opening up of spring and the return of the sport of sports is manifested on every side. The Tobacconists have a manager capable .of getting the most out of his men and efficient to the last degree, a ^ood Judge ol baseball talent and a'hustler. As usual the club will"be -in the fight from the first whistle and will still be there at -the wane of the season. A ball club, and a mandjer- worthy of representing the to^fc. Still another bigMeajrue team will- show in Greensboro next spring. The Detroit Tigers will play an exhibition there with Toronto club on March 26 and it is guaranteed that the Mighty Tyrus will appear in the line-up along with the other regulars of the Tiger team. "With the Xankee- Brwklyn gajne scheduled for April 9, Greensboro will -have quite a spot in the baseball sun next spring in this immediate .vicinity. ' o -- Zeke Smith literally took the, crowd b^ storm last night at Municipal Hall and there is no doubt that the Richmond grappler is a clean, skilled mat' man, one of the most sportsmanlike that has appeared here in some time. Had it not been for the thump Zeke got on the ^iead his showing would have been much better. Call it lucR, accident .or what not, it was an unfortunate occurrence and there . will alwavs be a question as to what would have been the result- of the scrap had Smith not received the blow. The only way to settle the argument will be to stage another match betwen these two men. There would be mucn interest manifested in such a. show, if it should, be put on and it would meet a popular demand 'if Smith were to're-appear here r;e- dless of whom he Is matched wlta. Olympic Leaders Settle Dispute (A»»o«Iated Preis leased Wire) CHAMONIX, France, Jan. 25.-- ·The controversy between William Taylor, manager of the American Olympic team anrd Allen H.

(Chick) Doak, formerly baseball coach at j^forth Carolina and later at Trinity College, today was selected by the Athletic Committee of North Carolina State College as baseball coach for the 1924 season. VIcTigue and His Manager Settle Their Differences (Anitoclated Press Leased Wire) NEW YORK, Jan. 25.-- Mike McTigue, -world's light heavyweight champion, and Joe Jacobs, his manager have settled their differences definitely but not in a new agree- men£ as those close to .them had expected. McTigue paid Jacobs $10,000 to be released from his management under a contract which would not hav expired until August and hereafter will manage his own affairs. The legal documents were signed yesterday at the office of Tex Richard, promoter, who negotiated the peace settlement. It was reported that immediately after signing the papers McTigue, re- offer of $100,000 from a syndicat of Newark. N.

Campaign to Find Best Poloists to Represent America (Associated Press I-cased Wire) ·NEW YORK, Jan. 25.-- An intensive campaign will be held to get the best possible poloists in the saddles of the American team which will defend the international polo cup - against an invading four from England this summer and no one is certain of a place on the team. This was announced by Devereaux Milburn, veteran of four tournament* with England and a - member of the committee that will select the team. "Mr. Milburn,has taken the view recently advanced by Ixsuis E. Stod- darfi, president of the United States Pols Association, veteran Number 1, who will not be a candidate for this year's team, that the younger players should get a chance. There will be a lo'jig series of tryouts at the Meadow Brook club start- Ing in May and continuing until a team is picked in mid-July, early enough to allow it more than a month of practice.
