THE BOSTON GLOBE-S ATURDA Y. FEBRUARY 6. I91B SPORTS[ H Written % By U The H Globe’s H Trained Staff SPORTS ONE OF THE GREATEST PLAYERS OF ALL TIMES WAS “ROSS" BARNES WILLARD HAS STARTED TRAINING FOR BOUT WITH JOHNSON X QPORT- LIGHT THE LATE ROSCOE C. BARNES. Roscoe C. Barnes, known better to old-time baseball fans as “Ross" Barnes, who died yesterday In Chicago, j was the second baseman of the Boston j team In 1871, and In 1876 was with Chicago. His first Important game was in j July, 1867, at Chicago, between the Nationals of Washington and the Forest City nine of Rockford, 111, Barnes being the shortstop and A. G. Spalding the pitcher of the latter team. He had previously played in amateur nines. He remained with the Forest City club until j Harry Wright selected him as the second baseman of his new Boston team In j 1871. From that time until 1876 he knew no club but the Boston, and. it was in this excellent training school that Ross graduated as the finest second-base player ever seen on the professional • field. “Robb” was a native of New York State and was 5 feet $% inches tali. For four seasons he took the lead as j the acknowledged best batsman in the fraternity. Barnes was not of the class . of chance hitters who, when they go to the bat simply go in to hit the ball as hard as they can, without the slightest, Idea as to where it is going; but he studied the position and made his hits i according to circumstances. He was j among the first to practically introduce the new well-known “sacrifice hits, j which was written up in baseball books of 1869-70. In fact, as "a scientific batsman”—one who went in to place a ball advantageously—there was never his , superior. . ... In 1875 he capped the climax in this respect, some of the games in that season being model displays of his batting skill. But it was in his fielding that, he excelled. One point of excel-, lance was his shrewd Judgment in cov- . ©ring the infield according to his batsman; one time playing almost back of first base, then at short right field, and then bank of second base. In fact, he was a base-playing strategist, and in j this specialty he had no equal. Like all the graduates of the Boston i school who were worthy their alma; mater, “Ross” was an honorable and gentlemanly player, one always to be j relied upon for his most earnest efforts ; to win in every match in which the interests of his club were at stake. The : Olncinnnati management never did a j wiser thing than when they added Barnes to Jim White’s team. His sick- j ness in 1877 interfered with his record, , but in 1878 he rallied with excellent . effect. He retired in 1881. One notable thing about Barnes was . that he could steal second on the first j or second ball pitched without sliding, j and did it time and again. i Back in 1903 T. H. Murnane, writing 1 about Barnes, paid him this tribute: ; "In the early history of professional ; baseball there were few great ball J players, but those few could hold their j own with the greatest of the present time. 'Ross’ Barnes was the second ; baseman from '71 to '76. Then he went j to Chicago for two years, and then | gradually quit the game. “In his day he stood out as the king i of second basemen, as well as the fin- ; est batsman and run-getter of his time. ' He could cover more ground than any j man I ever saw play the position, and j . could make plays to first on ground j balls in short right field. “He had a long reach and could pick j up a ground ball when on the dead run, on either side. He was also fast on j double plays. He had no superior as a 1 base runner, and was the first player to | throw himself wide of the base and hold j the bag. He claimed base running was j the most trying department of the game i and injurious to the player. As a bats-, man he could hit out, bunt and place the ball, and was usually good for a] batting average pf .460. . "He was more of a sensation in his day than Lajoie Is at the present time I (1903). He was a much faster man, but | was not forced to face the curve pitch- | ing of the .present time. He played i without gloves, as did the players of his time, and no doubt would have turned out a phenomenon under the present conditions.” FOUR worlfs T ecords GO IN SWIMMING MEET CHICAGO, Feb 6—Four new world records were set here in the Central Amateur Athletic Union swimming events, and 15 American marks were broken. Harry Hebner, Perry McGillivray and Michael McDermott were the main factors In the meet. McDermott set a world's mark of 1:13 2-5 for 100 yards In retaining the 200 yards breast stroke title and made a new record for the 200 yards of 2:38 2-5, diping two seconds off his own record. McGillivray, in defending the 30 yards’ open swim title, set a new'mark of 2:50 1-5 over the 250 yards and created one of 3:26 1-5 for the 300 yards. The old world’s records were 2:51 for 250 and 3:26 2-5 for 300, both by J. G. Hatfield of England. The best previous American mark was 2:52 3-5, by McGillivray. Hebner in swimming the 880 yards, broke 10 American records, beginning at 330 yards. -His time for the 880 yards was- 11:14 1-5, the former record of 11:29 1-5 being held by C. M. Daniels. ANOTHER ENGLISH “PRO” GOLFER COMING TO U. S. NEW iORK, Feb (¡--Another foreign professional will soon be located in America, for it was learned yesterday that Wilfrid Reid of Banstead Downs, Eng, and a brother-in-law to Louis Telller of Canoe Brook, will arrive here within the next two weeks to become connected with the Seaview Golf Club, at Absecon. He will suceed William H. Robinson, who has been with the club since It started. Reid, It will be recalled, had a fine opportunity to capture the American open t hampionship at Brookline in 1913, but he fell down on the last day’s play and finished in a tie for 16th place with a total of 318. Retd, through his visit in 1913, is well known here. At home he has distinguished himself on more than one occasion. Thomas L. McNamara, former Metropolitan open champion, and Thomas Kerrigan of Dedham, passed through this city yesterday on their way to the £outh. * YALE MAY YET HAVE ARTIFICIAL LAKE TO ROW ON AT NEW HAVEN NEW HAVE.'., Conn, Feb C—The official announcement by Capt Denegre this week that Guy Niekalls has sent word that he will be back in New Haven again before the end of February has settled that matter definitely. There have been numerous reports published to the effect that he had enlisted and would not return to coach the crew. Many people had wondered why it is Mr Nickaus ift not In the English army, and they therefore accepted the reports that he wouni not uo any more coaching at Yale as correct. The. fact is that Mr Niekalls is too old for military service in England and this is the only reason that Yale will be able to retain his services this year. Last Fall before he came back to New Haven, Mr Niekalls offered his services three different times, but each time was refused on acount of his age. The last time he tried to enlist, he sought the influence of one of his brothers, who is a General in the British Army, and put his age down as considerably younger than he actually is. He nevertheless was promptly told that everybody in England knew his age and that he could not get into the army. In order to be of some service in the present crisis in England, Mr Nichalls returned home the day after he finished the Fall rowing in order to take part in the recruiting work and since that time has been helping in it. Mr Nichalls is almost 49 years of age. Before Mr Niekalls went back to England, he arranged to have Capt Denegre call out the candidates for both the varsity and Freshman crews immediately after the Junior Promenade which takes place next Tuesday. Mr Nick- alls does not like indoor running and left instructions for the candidates to do as much outdoor running as possible. This outdoor work will be supplemented by exei'cises in the gymnasium, on the rowing machines, and In the tank. Mr Giannini will have charge of this work until Mr Niekalls reaches New Haven, when Niekalls will take charge of the varsity candidates and Giannini will devote himself to the Freshmen. Mr Niekalls, last year, had the crews on the river as soon as the ice was out and this means that he will have them on the open water early in March if such a thing is possible. It is essential that Yale should get on the water early this year because of the race with Pennsylvania during the Easter vacation. Yale will have just about a month after these races before the triangular race at Princeton with the Tigers and Cornell. This race will be rowed May 15. A race between the freshmen crews in 'which Yale will take part has also been arranged for the same date as Princeton. As the Harvard races will take place June 25, the Yale crews will have just about six weeks left in which to get ready for the Crimson. This is the most strenuous rowing schedule that Yale has had since 1912, when James O. Rodgers took charge of rowing and had three varsity races. The graduates, who have paid Mr Niekalls for coming to Yale, are leaving nothing undone to put rowing on a firm basis here. They have just built a new boathouse for the crews at Gales Ferry, which, in addition to the clubhouses already there, will give Yale the finest equipment that any college has on a fcur-mile course. Tire only thing that Yale still lacks in rowing is an ideal place for practice here in New Haven. The graduates are now considering the feasibility of building an artificial lake which may some day supply this great need. Albert M, Barclay. By TEX O’ROURKE, Sparring Partner of Jess Willard. CAMP WILLARD, near Ysleta, Tex, Feb 6--The temporary training schedule j adopted by Jess Willard, white hope. I for his championship fight with Jack j Johnson Is going along smoothly. A ■ hundred or more fight fans journeyed j out to the camp on the Knaublauch ; ranch at Ysleta, 10 miles east of El ; Paso, on the opening day. Mr Knaublauch, who is a banker and j a fight fan, turned his ranch over to Willard for training, and no fighter ever had a better place. The ranch house is a spacious 14-room bungalow, modern in every department, anti ideally furnished for its present use. One of the open-air outbuildings has been turned Into a fully equipped gymnasium. In the center is the 20-foot ring where Willard will put on the finishing touches for the fight with Johnson. A short distance from the camp Is the West Ysleta Country Club, which has opened its doors to us. Ysleta, by the way, wrhich may at last get Its name on the map, is the oldest settlement in the United States, having been established by the Spanish on their way north after the conquest of Mexico by Cortez. This would date it back before the founding of St Augustine. The climate seems to agree with Willard, and as sobn as his lungs get accustomed to the high altitude he should rapidly round into shape. The decision of Jack Curley to stage the bout at Juarez seems to have been justified already, for there Is a more promising outlook. Every' mail brings orders for seats and messages of good will. | Frankie Noel, sporting editor of the i San Antonio Light, informs us there wifi be at least three specials from his city, filled with “royal rooters to see the title change hands.” The Cattle Men’s convention alone should take care of 4000 or 5000 seats. And while I am digressing I want to say a word in appreciation of the splendid treatment accorded Willard and his party by the people of El Paso. The city has surely lived up to its traditional hospitality; the welcome sign is on every door and friendliness on every' face. The Chamber of Commerce has turned over to the management a suite of offices in its new building; automobiles are at our service, and every' one seems anxious to do their part in making our stay here a pleasant one. The temporary schedule starts at daybreak with a four-mile run on the road, followed by a shower and rubdown. Willard will repeat this at 10 o’clock for the first few mornings until his wind cats in good shape. At 3 in the afternoon he will start his regular workout, which will wind up with eight or 10 rounds of boxing, taking on bis sparring partners for two or three rounds each.

As arranged by that grand old scout. Milton Saul, a pal of the old days, who always believed in preparing himself thoroughly for the work that lay ahead—*9 follows, to wit- 1914—Editor Golf Magazine, Atlanta, Ga. 1915-Editor Gas Record, Chicago, 111. The beauty about this job is that after a year as editor of the Gas Record, Milt will be even more than usually qualified to plunge back into the golf industry. The golf-gas progression works either way, each being a training camp for the other. The Century Road Club of America has just issued the records in century competition and the mileage competition for 1914. W. J. Leek of New York city is first In the former with 19 centuries and one double; Z. I. Everett of Ridgefield, N J, is second with 15 centuries, and Fred T. Perreault of Malden is third with seven centuries and one doubles in the list of 17 who have been given. In the mileage competition the Malden man is 10th in a list of 18, with 1531 V , \ Ur * lilt 'É THE ALL-STAR OUTFIELD. "I see,” observes a Bystander, “that one writer refers to Speaker, Hooper and Lewis, the Red Sox outfield, as being the most valuable In the game. Is it?” Not while T. Cobb, S. Crawford and R. Veach are roaming around the Tiger outskirts and employing the old ash furniture around the plate. The Red Sox trio is a trifle better in defensive play—but not for total value- Cobb outhlts Speaker; Crawford outbata Lewis and Veach outhlts Hooper. The Cobb-Crawford combination is the most valuable and the most dangerous baseball has ever known. Full records at bat put them above Collins and Baker or Lajoie and Jackson, their only rivals. A RUN-PRODUCING RECORD. On an average Cobb and Crawford, together, will drive over 200truns and score ' another 150 on their own hook. This total of 350 runs produced by two men is half the run total secured by the ; entire Athletic machine and far more than half the runs collected by Red Sox, ! Senators or White Sox as a body. OFFSIDE PLAYS. The contender who isn’t willing to take the worst of it once In a while doesn’t deserve the edge when it comes hi* way. The entry who looks after the other fellow's rights seldom gets the worst of it in any game. For it is the rare pleasure and privilege of all hands to sting the guy who is always suspicious of being stung. “Why is golf such a wonderful game?” queries Outsider. Here's one answer from among 500 or 700 others. We saw a tournament match at Garden City where one entry was 16 years old and the other was 64. They both playea well and at an even clip. You don’t find that in another pastime with another punch on the side to appeal strongly to a Ted Coy or a Christy Mathewson.

Mr Perreault has been the lead- 1 er of New England riders since 1897, | when Mrs A. M. C. Allen made a State record of 108 centuries and 21,026 miles. ¡His best record on the bicycle was in j 1905 when he made 67 centuries, which included 20 singles, 20 doubles, one I triplet and one qfhadruplet, or 18,708 I miles in all. i His first double in that year was on i May 20 and the last on Dec 28. The trtp- I let was'on Sept 23-24, in 24 hours, over i the Providence and Newbury-port course, | and to Springfield and return, in 47h 57m. 1 He had a double puncture, which caused > a loss of considerable time. | On the quadruplet his pacemaker's ! wheel broke down in Worcester and the ! pacemaker had to return to Worcester i on the train. On his return from Palmer i he had a puncture on front and rear : w heels while coming through Palmer, and after leaving Worcester on the last ; leg his chain broke six times, so that he | was able to beat the time limit by only I three minutes. On the triplet, however, ' he beat the time limit by 12 hours, and is j the only man who ever rode the triplet over the regular course in 24 hours. Mr Perreault is a Marathon runner aiso. In the B. A. A. Marathon of 1904, when he was 39 years old, he went over the course in 2h 54m 45s and finished ninth in a big field. Mr Perreault has never but once lost a day from work in training or competing. The exception was when he rode that December double century. His training and competition have been done in the evening, on Sundays and holidays and during his vacations. He is going in for distance and mileage riding strong this year.

T he G lobe B y T he F amous A merican L eague U mpire - Near the close of the 1914 baseball season, when it was certain that Philadelphia would win the pennant in the American League and Boston in the National, the two rival managers, Mack and Stallings, adopted entirely different systems in conditioning their players for the big event. Mack, immediately on cinching the pennant, allowed a majority of his veteran players to get out of the regular lineup. St'allings, on the other hand, insisted on pushing his team just as hard as if it was still fighting for the pennant. Such a system as that adopted by the Boston leader was severely criticised on all sides. Early in July the Boston club had been in last place. It was a bitter struggle to work from last place to a oennant winner, and most fans believed that Stallings was acting unwisely in not giving his veterans a rest. Throughout the greater part of the season, three pitchers, James, Rudolph and Tyler, had shouldered the burden of Boston’s responsibilities, Stallings, in working three men In rotation, had slightly defied the belief of most modern managers that every fourth day is the Droper system of working a pitcher to get the best results. After having worked his star trio so hard it was believed that he would at least give these n la vers a chance to take things easy with the pennant won, but, instead, he kent using them in their regular turn, although he would often curtail the day’s work to five innings Most fans heileved that when Stallings’ team went into the big series it would be stale because it had been driven too hard. The day before the end of the Boston club’s regular season the baseball world was startled when the news was flashed over the wire that third baseman Smith of the Boston club had broken his leg sliding into second base .in a game «iainst Brooklyn. Those critics who hSd conceded Boston a slim chance to win saw that chance vanish with the injury of Smith, who had been a very valuable man to the Boston club in its great uphill battle for the National League championship. The wise men who Insisted that Stallings was using the wrong system in driving his players to the very finish pointed to the injury to Smith as proof of the fact. Smith injured his leg in the usual nlanner—started to slide, saw that he did not need to hit the ground, tried to stay up, his spikes caught, and the leg was broken. The Braves wound up the season with a double-header, Smith being injured in the first game. In the second game Stallings put a team in the field which lacked many of the regulars. It was just such a team as most critics and fans Insisted he should have been Using for the week past. It was pointed out that Stallings had discovered his error foo late. It was contended that he should have allowed the stars to take it easy, and that he should have Insisted that they take no hard chances on the bases. Perhaps no manager could be more severely censured than Stallings was for his methods. Even his most loyal supporters failed to see the wisdom of the system that had resulted In the injury to Smith on the evC of the World's Series. At the time no one knew the real reason that Stallings had for shifting his system at the very last minute and using substitutes after the damage had* seemingly been done. Here is how Stallings later explained it: "The injury to Smith probably worried me more than any one else in the big United States. I realized that it already- had greatly affected the spirit of my team. I knew that some drastic measures would have to be resorted to in order to get the men back to a proper fighting spirit. After the first game when I walked into the clubhouse I informed practically all my regulars that they were out of the second game. I told them that I wanted to show them in the next game that the injury to Smith would have no effect on our chances. “A scrub team can win a game if it goes out there with the proper spirit ia what I impressed on the boys. The team I put in the field the next game was one of the worst looking ball clubs that ever played major league ball Catchers were in the infield and pitchers in the outfield, yet that club went out and walloped Brooklyn, 9 to 2. I hadn’t changed my system, as most people thought; I merely shifted at the last moment to prove to my ball players that one man’s loss could not wreck a ball team. The way the substitute club beat Brooklyn restored the confidence that the Injury to Smith had destroyed.” Would you have thought of Stallings' scheme?

The announcement that Capt Rua* cell Dean of the Mechanic Arts High School team has been chosen along with Capt Dennis Murphy of the Boston College High School team, to accompany the Brookline High swimming team’» delegation to the National Inter- aeholastle championships next Saturday at Princeton University, raise» the question as to whether or not the Boston School Committee will give Dean permission to make the trip. A rule was adopted by the Boston School Committee last Spring which prevents Boston High School teams from going out of town to comptée where it is necessary to remain ove*' night. Technically, Dean cornes under the rule, and fio doubt permission will have to be obtained to make the trip. It is the general impression that he will be allowed the privilege of making the trip, inasmuch as Matthew Mann, who coaches the Brookline High and Harvard teams, will be in charge Of Dean is the best of the Boston High School swimmers and it is not »ucb ® surprise that he was chosen to maae the trip with the Brookline team. in every meet this Winter, except that with the Huntington School last lues* day, he has captured three °r.iour first places.

Arlington and Melrose High hockey «•importers are pleased by the fact that ♦ h« teams have been offered the afternoon of Washington’s Birthday for their annual Interscholastic Hockey League game at the Arena instead of Feb 19, as previously announced. Melrose High was scheduled to meet Vermont Academy at Saxtons River Feb but Manager Harold Dunn hopes to Obtain a releaso of that date. According to Dorothy Ken Ison of the Winchester High girls’ basket-ball team the team has been overlooked as a champion possibility this Winter, but after the decisive maimer in which It whipped the Oliver Ames High and Swampscott High teams in one week It i* evident* that the Winchester team is very much on the map and has a splendid chance to win the State honors.

It was clean hockey all the I way through, and an exhibition which ! showed conclusively that roughness is j not needed to make games thrilling. j The clans are gathering for the ; i B. A.

At the schoolboy games points are counted on , i fast times in the team races, and the i Idea is one worth while following for j the collegians. The football rulemakers apparently are more evenly divided than ever re- i garding the use of numbers for the ; I players. A few years ago tne scheme ; . had few advocates indeed, but now even Walter Camp has declared himself In I favor of the practice. The spectators will welcome the num- > | bera, but. here and there one finds ? ! coaches and scouts who like the num* i hers for the other fellow's team, but not ! for their own. It surely is easier for a ! scout to follow the individual playing of ! an opponent when the men are nutn- ! bered than when they are not. The Lawn Tennis Association is in j ; mighty prosperous financial condition, with nearly $30,00o in the bank. Of tills j | sum $14,500 was the profit of the Davis j Cup series last year. Leslie Nunamaker, the old Red Sox ! catcher, is one of the happiest members of Col Ruppert's Highlanders.

The National Commission, which wifi ! i meet in Cincinnati today, lias made no i ! announcement of Important work at hand. Messrs Jolgison, Tener and Her! mann, however, are very iikely to con- i aider, and finally, the advisability of lifting the draft for the Class AA ml- I nors, ; This step, if taken, will put the dou- - ble A leagues in a class with the ma- j i jors, and the American and National j : League no longer wilt have the right to j I draw one man from each class AA ] ! club at the end of every playing sea- ; ' son and at a stipulated price. The right j j of draft at present stands as al mut the 1 j only boundary between the majors and 1 the highest minors. It’s to be West Side and not Newport ! for the All-Comers this year, but the ! » change was made only after one of the : ; most spirited meetings ever held by the I lawn tennis men. The air has been full ! j of reasons why a change was to be de- j ! sired, but the main one is that the ma- i Jority of the player« did not have a good time during tennis week at the Casino. Those who fitted In nicely with the social festivities had no kick coming, but the chaps who did not bring their evening clothes found little to enjoy between matches. The football committee did well to continue Edward K. Hall as its chairman. Since 1905 he has been one of the most active members, and when football was receiving its “panning” a few years ago, Hall’s clever steering as secretary did much to save the game and to bring about the elimination of what were considered undtfnrable features. Jack MoakL-y ana .»«tiiio Fitzpatrick won't be at the games tonight, but both will be up early in the morning to giv« ; the summaries mote than one “once over.” There has been some mighty clever goal-keeping seen in Boston’s hockey matches in the past few years, but none better than that of young Mann, the McGill net keeper, against Harvard. Last night’s match very easily could have been won by a 6-tn-t, or even greater score, by Harvard had not the Canadians had a truly wonderful fellow' battering down the shots, of which no less than 46 were accurate. Every one is glad to see that Charley Farrell has caught on In New York. He’s a grand old scont in more senses than one. Tenpin bowlers of New England, who have been in the background for several years on account of the wonderful growth of the duckpin and candlepm games, are going to come into then- own again and share honors wdth the small-ball bowlers. The rollers of the tenpin, or bottlepin. aa it is termed in this district, will have an even break in the big tournament now suggested for Boston. The Atlantic Coast Bowling Association will in May hold a big tournament, installing alleys for the purpose, and for the first time in the history of rolling. aJl three styles, tenpin, duckpin and candlepm teams wifi roll. Special alleys wifi be built for the tenpin style. Hundreds of New England bowlers have Joined the association, and there is no question that the vote for Boston will beat that for Washington. Big pin bowlers from as far West as Chicago will compete, their entries being already assured and efforts will -be made to bring on the A, is, C team which wins the championship in Peoria next March. The opportunity to display the tenpin game has met with the approval of the “old guard” in New England, and it is proposed to keep considerable of the tenpin prize money in the district. It is a matter of great regret that “Joe" Loomis, the Chicago A. A. athletic star, holder of three A. A. U championships, will not compete in the B. A. A. games in Mechanic’s Building tonight. Manager George V. Brown announced this morning that he had received word from Loomis that he would lie unable to get away from business. ANOTHER TIP-TOP BOWLER 'Ä »twm»*.«-.,».

By “STRAIGHT DRIVE.” THE STANCE—If you will stand at the first tee of any much played golf course on tournament day and watch the varied and awkward position» assumed by the different players you cannot help being impressed with the importance of acquiring an effective stance. o Many golfers sacrifice enormous power by standing too close to the ball, while others lose control by standing too far away ijid reaching for the ball as they hit it. Of th« two faults I prefer to see the latter, for it is much easier to cure than the former. The best way to ascertain which stance and position In relation to the bail is suited to your build is to carefully watch good players of your own figure. When you find a style that enables you to feel perfectly comfortable a» you address the bail you are in a fair way to progress. -J Yale Strong Man Doesn't Train.
