Journal Spoolal Servic*. New York, Aug. .Soiance has coma toroaxd with a new and striking statement. It has joined a fresh link to the chain of indictments against athletics carried to an Immoderate dogiee. Once beyopd the bounds of moderation, physical exercise and physical training not only weaken the heart for a lifetime, predispose to pneumonlu, cause pulmonary tuberculosis and make extra possible a dosen other ills, bnt they 11nut a man for being the ideal husband and father. "It will be found," says Dr. Robert E Cough lln of Biookljn. In a series of papers he has written on the use and abuse of athletics and the deaths of athletes, "that comparatively few athletes marry Of those who do marry a small percentage ha-ve children. A large percentage are divorced by their wives." Has Watched Athletes. Dr. Coughlin has boon collecting statistics upon and following the oareers of athletes for years. Be examined the contestants in amateur boxing matches, and the abnormal development of the best of them struck him. Magnificently developed as to their muscles, they were far from being men of normal health nnd strength lieyond a certain point the muscular training was at the expense of their vitality It took away fiom the heart and the lungs. There was scarcely an organ of the system not affected and made less effective. It seemed worth while to explore further into the cause. .'In regurd to the benefit to be derived from athletics," says the doctor, "one has only to remember the physiology of exercise to become convlm ed of the fact that exercise, per se, may be 'very beneficial. The point to bear In mind la to advise the person to stop before fatigue becomes evident. We can do this readily when the athlete is interested in games for the mere exercise, but such advice cannot be offered when his aim is to excel In an athletic contest. Here is where athletics do great harm, and it would be a safe rule to adv4se against all forms of athletics in the nature of a contest. Heart Troubles. "Athletics may be said to be beneficial until the heart begins to be markedlv hypertrophied. This is the danger blgual Hypertrophied is the medical man's way of saying enlarged. That is, the walls or musclos of the heart Increase in size. "Athletics is a two-edged sword. The prime object in athletics is improvement of the general health."

SSff^ August IN SPORTING FIELDS WHEN BATTLING NELSON AND JOE GANS MEET IN RING Special to The Journal, Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 6In reference to the olaim of the Minneapolis papers that F. W. Robinson, who testified before the American association at Chicago, does not work for the Northern Pacific company and is not known there. President O'Brien of the association says: "It matters not what they think. The man testified all right and I know him, so there need be no fear as to our being unable to procure the man. I am Investigating this affair and will give out absolutely no news concerning it until I have completed the work. Then the matter will be given to the public." It seems well established, upon the word of President J. B. O'Brien, that "F. W. Robinson" does not ejlstat least under that name. Minneapolis Is wondering why. After the famous meeting st Chicago the country at large was bombarded with partisan stories of the affair. The Minneapolis magnates were branded as villians of the deepest dye. The stories told of the depths of moral degradation, of perjury, of bribery, and attempted to show that the Minneapolis baseball management was nothing less than an aggregation of alleged crooks and men who would stop at nothing to blast the reputation of an umpire. Much was made of the evidence of Robinson. His evidence was bolstered up in every way. Be was described in detail as "a conductor ou the Northern Pacific, running out of Minneapolis." His borne address was given. To an unsuspecting reader it looked as tho this man, strictly on the level, had refused to be corrupted and had, in anger at the insult, told all about an attempt at a dirty deal. The Journal started out to try and get at the truth of the whole affair. It was the writer's Intention to give the man who was around offering bribes for such a purpose "a bawling out," as the ball players say, such aa would last him a lifetime. "Robinson" was the man to give the first information, and the first move to find him was baffling. His Minneapolis address, given In Chicago, was that of a vacant lot. The superintendent of the Northern Pacific knew of no such a man. The present and new city directory had missed him. From Milwaukee Saturday came the first confirming word. It was a short article in the Free Press of that city. In which O'Brien was quoted as saying that "Robinson" gave a fictitious name and address at Chicago, and that he and the directors knew the right name. That this was permitted, as It was desired to "protect the man's Job." No one doubted but that a man gave such evidence as was quoted in the press stories, hut why should he hide behind a subterfuge There is no employer of labor In Minneapolis or any other city who is going to discharge an employee for telling the truth about a bad deal when the telling of the truth and an exposure reflects hut credit upon the narrator. If O'Brien and "the directors" knew this man was sailing under an alias, why did they not so Inform the reporters and let the evidence go out weighted with its anonymous character. It was sent out with .every )mi of authenticity attached to it and as a bit of damning proof against the Minneapolis clubowners. The credltablllty of the club witnesses was attaeked in every way possible and everything done to make it appear that Robinson was one of the noblest types of pure manhood. O'Brien has at hand the explanation that he bears no responsibility for the work of the reporters, but had he taken the trouble to explain to them that he was suppressing the nam of this witness it might have given a different phase to the case. If he is fair and intends to be fair thruout this whole business, be should not permit such a hit of business as this to go thru. Minneapolis followers of baseball want the truth. If there has been dirty work on either side tbey want to know all about It. The Minneapolis press will not cover up any "deal," no matter whom It may hit. But the action of the investigators in permitting this man of straw to be blazoned before the country as a fearlebs exposer of iniquity while he was at the time hiding behind a fictitious name throws doubt upon the whole affair. The Investigation, if continued along this line, will never be free from suspicion of all-around Jobbery, and the quicker such "proof" is dropped the better. As it is, the discovery that "Robinson" is not the name of the man, that he gave a false address and false story of his occupation goes far to solidify local opinion on the side of the local magnates. The writer Is willing to give Joe D. O'Brien full credit for every act which deserves credit. If he did permit this man to go on before the examiners at Chicago and give a false name, false address and false occupation, he has made every standpoint, and one open to the most severe censure. Manager Chance of the Chicago Nationals says he has another "Buck" Ewing in Tom Walsh, the Kansas catcher. The New York Americans hare developed Into pitcher-killers of the first class this season. William S, Quinn, who went to Harvard early In the year as coach of the hammer and shot candidates, is to be the successor of Jack McMasters as trainer of the Harvard football and other varsity athletic teams. According to plans now making, a tournament for the American billiard championship, elghteeninch balk line, two shots In, will be held In New York early In September for a trophy and a cash prize. The Birmingham club has made a great uphill fight and once again Is leading tbe Southern league. Chelsea fight promoters perhaps will give "Sandy" Ferguson an opportunity to box Jack Johnson in tne near future. The stable of Ed Geers has shown up remarkably well this season. The tennis tournament for the Iowa championship Is scheduled to take place this week at Des Moines. LTNKS OUT OF WATER. Winona. Minn..

LUND LANDS LOSE ANOTHER TO REDS Erickson, the big pitcher for the Brookings team, won his own game against the Lund Lands yesterday afternoon at Minnehaha by making a single In the second, scoring two men and hitting out a three-bagger In the ninth with three men on bases. The game was a fast affair and some star plays were pulled oft*. Hallstrom, left fielder for the Lunds, was the star of the game, making two almost impossible catches of long files, bitting out a neat two-bagger and stealing three bases, one of these being home Billy Hoke covered his position in fine style and made a hit with the crowd by his fast work on bases. Sammy Klnkeljwas injured in the eighth inning and could not continue catching. He was replaced by his brother Ed, who had been playing first. The game was almost free from errors, each side making but one. Jones of the Brookings team dropped a throw from Hille which was a little wild, and Rees of the Lunds missed a mean one at third. Hallstrom missed a fiv after a long run, but an error was not marked against him, as the catch waa impossible.

THE North American "The good of tbe old, the Best of the new method.." 11**? f+ i,QMsGCTIOtsWtT* fit* PosW TeloinjlhCiMe to. 6t 1966.^ GOOD RACING AT SARATOGA COURSE Meeting at the Spa Starts with the $10,000 Handicap Today. New York, Aug. 6.While there have been more brilliant racing programs on opening days at other courses, that at Saratoga today is by no means inferior to many which have ushered in previous seasons there. In former days horses were not primarily sent to the Spa to race, or at least, when they began to race they were not as a rule wound up to their highest topnotoh of condition, because rest and recuperation were the objects sought. The card today, however, at the Springs is of sufficient interest to attract the whole rating world. Never before was there such a de mand for transportation to and accommodations nt Saratoga. Well-filled events will render the task of selecting winners none too easy. The $10,000 Saratoga handicap, won twice in previous years the popular "Purple and Gold Stripes" of the Messrs. Sanford, may prove to be a much betternoe than it looked on paper overnight. The absence of Mohawk II from the list of probable starters would seem to imply that he is not yet ready for a hard race, but the stable has a representative in Ravine, a daughter of Clifford. Another good 3 year-old fill}, Tangle, may carty the colors of F. R. Hltcbcok, who may also be represented by Dandelion, the Brighton winner The Picket also is reported to be in excellent condition.

Aberly and Joss each took a turn at pitching for the Minneapolis team, but the locals had the best of the argument. The Ethans defeated the Victorias yesterday afternoon at the Sandy lake grounds. The score was 8 to 2 and the winners had the beat of the argument all along. Winston, Harper, Fisher team defeated the Jordans by a scoie of 8 to 6 in a closely contested game.

Neb., Aug. 6The approach of die1 football season at Nebraska finds Interest la cornhusker circles as keenly expectant as In for-,^.^ iner .tears Much of this Interest attaches to the' new rules for the government of the game and to' the fact that Amos P. Foster, ex-fullback at Daitmouth and coach at Cincinnati university last ear, is i succeed to the coachship by rea-* son of the resignation of Walter C. Booth. The schedule arranged by the cornhusker ath-' letic authorities is attractive. It includes three^ big games*those with Minnesota, Chicago and reason oattracet Chronicles, had the Holtzermanns guessing, al- cornbuskers have never before met on the grid- th fac that the maroons iron.

Kansas and Nebraska, after _"S| an athletic estrangement of three years, are again friends. The Thanksgiving date in Lincoln was given" to Cincinnati unlversitv as a compliment to Coach' Foster. Another recent departure in athletic* at Nebraska is the adoption of a system of graduate management. Earl Eager, a member of the A cornhusker football squad for several seasons, fJ5 is the new manager. Manager Eager and Fullback Mason, who Is to captain the cornhusker*. Sjhave been casting up the situation as to the players, and announce that they expect a very promising squad of players to appear for prac- i tlce, which is to begiu tbe first week of September Graduation has left several gape in the varsity lineup to fill. Borg. center Cotton, right tackle, and Benedict, quarter, are no longer In school, and their absence will be felt, a* each waa a star In his r-osltlon. Captain Mason, fullback, and Little, WeUef and Schmidt, halfbacks last season, are to return to school, making tbe backfield much less of a problem than the line Benedict, the former quarterbock, wlU b* hard to replace. Cook. McDonald and Drain are to make a try for Benedict's old position. In the line Coach Foster will have Denslow, end, and Taylor. Wenstrand. Rice, Nelson and Burns from which to pick guards and tackles. Each is a veteran and up to the desired standard in physical equipment. Lincoln high school, winner of the western high-school football championship last season, is to contribute four ot its star plarers. These men entered the university at the winter term and will be eligible regardless of the bar .-aied by the anti-freshman rule now in vogue, and which Nebraska wlU enforce regardless of it* non-membership In the western conference. There will be no training table nor trainer at Nebraska this fall, a decision also In line with tbe conference rules. The Nebraska authorities are anxious to clear money on the schedule In furtherance of a plan to acquire a new athletic field, and the saving on these two items should permit ot a decided addition to the fund.
