California will go intp the second game of the Intercollegiate baseball 'series to be piayea at fetaniora tomorrow with a green battery- is to say'tnat captain Heitmul ler and Joe Bliss are both out of it. After an investigation the status ofthese two men, the faculty athletic committee held a final meeting yesterday afternoon at which the following deci-' sion was made: i "During the week the faculty afci-letic committee has heen railed u-non to Investigate the amateur standing of W. F. Heitmuller and J. J. Bliss, whose names appear on the list of thoseeli-gible to represent California 'in baseball with Stanford during the season of 1905. FACTS GIVEN. "The essential facts established to the satisfaction by the Investigation are: That on April 2, WF-Heitmuller and J. J. Bliss played with the" Heeseman team of Oakland against a Fresno team, at Fresno. iri a game of baseball; bot.i clubs being members i of, the California State League. "2. That the Heeseman team of Oakland Is a semi-professional team, including among Its players on April 2 at least one professional player; and that Mr- Heitmuller and Blis were cognizant of; these facts. "According to section 15, 'No person shall compete who is not an amateur. 1'Section -16 reads: 'An amateur is defined as being one has not entered in anyojtsH' competition or foi a or. entrance fee; or under fictitious- name; -or has not com peted with or against 'a professional for any prize: or where I an admission fee is charged; or who has not instructed, pursued or assists In the pursuit of athletic exercise' as a means of livelihood or Tot gain or emolument. r.o person 6hall lose his" amateur standing by playing against a professional for any prize or where admission fee is charged, if it is done" under the auspices and bona' eontrol of the university to which he "The facts show that W. F. Heit- mulfcsrand J. J. Bliss have sacrificed their amateur standing as defined in the intercollegiate agreement. As a necessary consequence, they have been withdrawn from the list of students eligible to, represent the University of California In intercollegiate contests. "HARRY BFAL T.ORREY, EDWARDS." MEN DISSATISFIED. The chances of victory" in tomorrow's game are; of course, materially affected by the decision of the commit-' tee, and no small amount of dissatisfaction has been expressed at the action taken, especially since no protest Irad been entered by and the standing of the men afrected, was npi in question by the cardinal. Captain Heitmuller expresses thu views of many athletes when lie says: "I am dissatisfied with the decision the athletic, commitee. because it is with any action ever tak- tme. It istln acknowledged fact that leges nave always piayea in state league teams in the. past. This is th first time that any action of the kind has ever been taken at either institution. If the committee were consistent, the teams of both would and there wtuld be very few. men who would escape. The ruling Is unsatisfactory and unfair be-qause cannot be applied to all the men in both teams." rontpr fi olfl nn tho 'Varsity team, brought out another point that is pertinent to the decision (Of the committee. i He satd: "The ruling of the committee is not consistent with good 1 pm nt in r-z-illoo-Li. HracoViall harnncp it cannot be followed out to its logical conclusion without working great in-Jury to the game as-, sport. It is Idle to contend thcnlege men can ever learn any of tht fine points of the game while at college- It is while playing in such games as those that -have been ruled out that the men learn the real game." TEAM DETERMINED. i The men who will go into the game in. the place of the two men who were disqualified' by the above ruling are W. A. Newman, In the' pitcher's box and-James Schafer behind the bat. While it is certain the chances i Mn li otdiuuiu ilea ucrcrii 111a- teriatly effected by the decision of the committee, there is a grimmer determination than ever on the part olf the 'team to win in the contest- tomorrow. to the enemV's diamond and nui up the game of its life. While nbt as i experienced as the men they replace, ''fjftfef new men. are not untried at the game and are: well able to hold down the positions that they fill. A summa-j ry of this year's baseball season will show hat some good playing must be don by the Cardinal tomorrow if is to be a third game tbis year. Most of the nineteen games played this year have been close and exciting, and the team has put up an article of ball such as is seldom seen on a diamond which has equaled In many respects, the playing of the professional coast league teams- The nine has had more than its share of hard luck in losing games by one run when it should have won.

Vf 1 II Always Basgnt The boating representatives of the TJnlverstiy of California are out with -a sportsmanlike statement which should do much to end the controversy between the two universities regarding a suitable course for the intercollegiate boat race. It Is pointed out, truthfully, that unusual weather conditions prevailed on the estuary last year on the day of the intercollegiate race, and that a recurrence of i such conditions is not likely. The statement of the Berkeley men follows: YThe misconceptions, both general and particular, touching the respective views of Stanford and California on the rowing question are so likely at present to ruin the bright prospects of intercollegiate boating in California that it seems best to vary the monotony of the proceedings by shedding the light of truth on the subject. "Briefly, the positions of the two universities are as follows: Stanford subjections to the Oakland estuary as a fece course are based, first, on the possibility of rough water for the day of the race, second, on the presumption that California practices on this race course and, therefore, will have the advantage of more familiarity with wha-tever rough water, eddies, whirlpools or other hidden or revealed benefits and detriments the stream may provide; third, that as the cardinal made the concession of rowing there last year and found the elements too harsh for her infant oarsmen the blue and gold should, as John L. Sullivan once remarked. 'reciprocate with-rretum' by yielding everything this year to Stanford; and lastly, that the sentiment at Stanford is so bit-erly opposed to the estuary that there would be no Stanford supporters to cheer the cardinal to victory. ITS ANSWERS. "California's answers to these objections are that last year the day of the race was an unfortunate exception to the general rule of smooth water for the estuary in the morning and early part Of the afternoon. Furthermore, she avers that she does not practice there, but on the othar end of the estuary and on the canal. She will also sign an agreement to- remain away from this course. Mote than this, she will give Stanford every opportunity tne latter may oesire to study all the advantages these mysterious waters may conceal from the ordinary human eye. She also feels, and Justly, that Stanford's reiteration of the belief that California does practice there and does, possess the occult knowledge Imputed to her Is In the face of the latter sincere statements and promises a deliberate and unwarranted insult to her rowing men. She believes also that that rough water is no more beneficial to her than to Stanford. The course at Redwobd is Quite as choppy as Is the canal where California is stilt trying to steady her shell. COURSE IS A FAIR ONE- "Whatex'er advantages the estuary may offer to one of two crews consist soleiy in the fact that the water is naturally a little more rapid in the center than on the sides. As the crews must row in the lines marked -out for them, and away from the center, the course is practically fair to both. And from the view point of the spectators and accessibil- lines, has undispated advantages over any other avilable course in California either for a two-mile race. "Both in this latter respect and in that Of fairnese to each crew it is superior to the. Thames at New London, the' scene of the annual Harvard-Yale contest. There the 'eel-grass side' is believed to be two or three lengths slower than the other. But the idea of objecting to the course for reason, or of considering the opportunity for choice of sides otherwise than as one of the fortunes of war and of true sportsmanship, would be regarded there as too childish tor discussion. "It is this combination of advantages in fact that prompted the champion sculler of his time, Ned Hanlon, to pronounce the Oakland estuary the superior of any courseta the world, with the exception of the Paramatta- River of Australia. "Now, as to the question of 'concessions. Stanford did not "concede" the point of rowing on the esutary last year. On the contrary she asked to be admitted as a contestant in California's race with Washington and California extended her that courtesy. Furthermore, she agreed, through her boat club president of that year, to row annually on the esAiary. Thus we see that every one of Stanford's objection to this almost ideal course is based either on false presumptions, pre Judices or on some other consideration not patent to the bystander. And when we add that California's final concession to row alternately on Stanford's choice cjf waters, the Stockton Slough, and on her own, the estuary, or on any other suitable course, has been met by Stanford with a somewhat dictatorial, cocky refusal tp row anywhere but a Stockton thia yeaU, with the choice for subsequent years tp fee left open to discussion, it will be seen thaf California has little or no option other than to devote her attentions exclusively to Washington. CALIFORNIA ASKS NO FAVORS. "In further deference to Xhc truth and justice of the matter it should be said that California is just as desirous as is Stanford of a fair race and no favors. She knows the estuary offers the opportunity for these desirable conditions. Her preference for this most available course is born solely of her wish to win for boating the place it deserves as the cleanest, most healthful and most spectacular of intercollegiate sports. She knows, too, that this consummation de voutly to be wished can never be gained until the undergraduates, i alumni and general (public can be brought to witness at leat ore well-contested, beautiful, thrilling exhibition of scientific intercollegiate oarsmanship. To that end both varsity and freshmen have been training as faithfully as their opportunities would permit to correct their faults of style and reflect honor upon their university and themselves. Intercollegiate contests are an indispensible stimulus to the dissemination of athletic interest and performance. They are also necessary outlets for the youthful exuberance of animal spirits that will otherwise generally seek less desirable vents. If, therefore, rowing, the acknowledged aristocrat of Intercollegiate athletics, must be doomed by prejudice or personal interest or petty mistrust it will be a sad commentary on our Western ideas -of true portsmansnip. it wul also be an edifying criticism of our notions of the ethics of sport, of the deference of the Individual to the general" interest, "Finally, let it be understood that California's concession to row anywhere provided Stanford will agree to the alternate course compromise is- inspired by her desire to start right. The- importance of so doing and the difficulty of recovering from a false beginning are evident to every student of the history of intercollegiate athletics. The most Is Certainly worth a serious thought. Let us 4 hope it win receive iV 1 Although tne local rider will against the champion, still he can upon the payment 01 a fine. Considerable interest is being confest and a big crowd will be the title.

Before a crowd 4500 persons George Botljner, the American lightweight champion wrestler, defeated K. Higashi, the leading Japanese jiu Jitsu expert, last night in Grand Central Palace in three straight falls. The tnanagement of the Palace seemed unable to. handle the crowd. The entrances were blocked arid the Are regulations were set at naught. Chief of Police McAdoo was present to see if the jia jitsu method would do for the police force. He was much disappointed at the result. The match proved most Interesting, although if was after 1 o'clock before it ended. Bothner took the first fall with a leg lock and neck hold in 14 minutes 35 sfeconds; the second with neck and crotch hold in 1 hour and 15 minutes 20 seconds, and the third with crotch hold In minutes seconds. Higashi was first in the ring, attired in, regular jiu jitsu costume. He was soon followed by Bothner, in similar regalia, looking a typical "Jap." He appeared out of place In this wrestling habit. His seconds were John Br ten and George onsen. The referee of the bout was "Tim" Hurst and the judges were "JoHnny" O'Brien for Bothner and Irving Hancock for Higashi. There, was probably fifteen pounds difference in the men's weight in favor of Bothner. The match was a combination jiu Jitsu-catch-as-catch-can affair, best three falls out of five. it TOM SULLIVAN WINS THE TITLE. Tom Sullivan won a decisive victory over Young Choynskl at Woodward's Pavilion last night, getting the decision after four hard-fought rounds. At no time did Choynskl have a chance. In the first round he was jabbed to his knees twice, and then was Scored successively three more times with "straight lefts and swings, taking the count each time. In -the second round he went to the canvas again, but came up for more. During the last two rounds he managed to stay on his feet, but be was hopelessly beaten and could not stay the tide. Harry Jenny knocked oat Barney Dris-coll In the third round of their battle. Drtscoll- was immensely popular with the crowd, but he-could not stand up before Tenny clean blows, and he finally succumbed. The rest of the bouts ended a follows: Gus Koster bested Bill JohnsVjn. Jaek Rodney bested Toung Otts, Denny Murphy bested Al Burns. Jack Brown bested Jim Kane and Jack Conroy knocked out Jack Gerrigan la the second fornia. i Scorer Brewer, Wilmerding Announcer Filcher, University SMOKER AT THE RELIANCE CLUB, It is seldom that any vaudeville thea ter circuit ever puts oi a show that ex- celled the entertainment and smoker give by thjs Relijftice Athletic Club last night.
