   Washington Post, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1913, Washington, District Of Columbia                               THE WASHINGTON POST: SUNDAY, JULY 20, 1913.

There is no question but that they were- victims of an off day, their work being: far and away below what they shown in prsvtoui encounters. Nevertheless, the fact remains that the best team won. Ninth and First "M. P mat on three distinct occasions, since the latter was strengthened, and to look like a real live pennatit con- tender. In each game, year's tiWe holdsrs have held the edge, and ex- celled, to some extent. Just how strong a combination the Ninth street representative actually is, Is borne out in the fact that in each of the three games against the rival team, they wera pitted against a former major league twirler, no other than "Buck" Becker, a. familiar figure However, the Ninth batsmen have man- aged to get tlielr share of aafe hits with Becker pitching. The Churchmen have a strong hitting team, and provided the pitching staff Is able to hold Its own, should loom up as a strong contender in the post season se- ries. In the Broome brothers, Milton and Charles, Ninth has a clever pair of ball plaj ers, who have contributed a goodly share toward the success of the team in the years of its existence. Both are creditable performers, both in the fleld and at the bat, and their work Is gen- eraljy appreciated among followers of the East "Washington circuit. "Monk" Walters, Oill Cassldy, and "Turn" Moreland are others who have added considerable strength to the team. All three are heavy hitters and aboVe the ordinary In the field. Moreland acd Walters have enjoyed professional ex- perience, while Cassldy has refused sev- eral opportunities to join the select class. Within another week it is expected that tentative plans for the post-season se- ries, booked to start here August 16, will be given out. Discussion at the recent meeting of the providing a number of ideas for the committee In charge, and some sort of an idea of the method of procedure, is apt to develop in the near future. Officers of the com- mission are anxious to dispose of busi- ness concerning the post-season series, in order that they might go right ahead plain for the intercity clash. one disappointment of the past week grew out of announcement of a de- cision to call oft the proposed amateur day, scheduled to take place at American League park, after the return of ihe Nationals next week. The fact that au- thorities -were forced to admit lack of in- terest was greatly deplored, and a blew to sport, to the least. Championship In the Treasury League were brought to a close during the week, after a season that has been marked by unqualified success and a far "better brand of the sport than was fufc-nUhed la, the initial season ot the circuit. Civil Service clinched top honors a cou- ple of weeks ago, hut had anything but at runaway race through the season. Sev- eral of the other teams showed strength at and pressed the to the Hmit for a victory. Some of the clubs would 'have succeeded in making things even more interesting for the had they had advantage of their full strength from the outlet. The moot interesting phase dis- closed in the enthusiasm among follow- of the league that held up right through the season. Crowds of appre- ciable witneMed the majority of games, while there were times when all available apace for spectators wan used. There hardly a Question that the Treasury League will be reorganized next Promoters of the circuit are high- ly enthusiastic over the oujcome of this year's race, and are firm in the opinion that another season will bring about even more encouraging results. Through two play con- tinued without a hitch. Squabbles that have hindered progress in other circuits bare been entirely unknown, and noth- ing bat absolute harmony has been evi- dent since the first day that representa- tive teams clashed. There Is some talk of the Treasury Department reentering tbe Departmental circuit next and there probajbiy is basis for the report Some years back the Money Counters figured prominently in the race in the Clerks' circuit, and in the majority of years that they Were represented man- aged to hold their own with pennant contenders through the entire season. A team picked from tbe various nines in the Treasury League of 1918 would furnish excellent material for a repre- sentative in the Departmental League. There are graat many who favor and are willing to support such a combination, and who would welcome a chance to get back for the Departmental League strug- gle. No definite acthm will be attempted this season, but It'is more than probable that when plans for the reorganisation of the Departmental League in 1914 are discussed the Treasury Department will have a representative ready to bid for a berth. Agriculture and Interior continue to hold the boards in the Departmental Lsague, and from this out, clashes in which they figure are apt to develop sport and competition the like of which has not been seen on the White Lot Ellipse the days ot the original cir- cuit, when crowds of proportions well into the thousands turned out to see the Both teams have been strengthened ma- terially by the addition of players re- cruited from other teams, and are ready to put up a stiff nght for supremacj On 'paper, the players appear about evenlj i matched, the addition of Wlesenberger.

Whichever team wins in the Depart- mental League "there is not the slightest doubt that It will be heard from In the post-season aeries. Both Agriculture and Interior are teams made up of players of ability and Ions experience, men who are apt to give the best of amateur teams in this section a run for honors. Many of the players h ive worked together for a number of a.nd have perfected style of pla> that effective against opposing teams Both ire well fortified In every sposltion, the iddltion of players from other teams hav- ing filled in all spots that appeared a trifle weak. Much of the credit for the success of the Departmental League is due to Pres- ident C. C. Clark, chief clerk ot the Agri- cultural Department, who has sacrifrecl considerable valuable time in the interest of the league during the two years of his Incumbencx j When M. O Chance refused to take the! office again, tvi ago, there many who were of the npinion that would be t) K up i n orf v, some one name ot C. C ices of a valuable official. In the iaat few months of his term as president of the league M. O Chance was unablp to spare the necessary time to look after the inter- ests of the league, and for this reason decided to refuse another nomination. C C. Clarlc took up the reins, and before the following: season was many weeks old had everything: fn great shape again. And since he has accomplished wonders for the circuit, bringing it into the lime- light as one of the leading amateur leagues in the District. As the season progresses in the Fed- eral League it looks more and more like Fairmont as winner of the second series, and the team to face Petworth In the final set of games to decide the title. The clubmen seem to be coming stronger with game, and are displaying far better form than at any previous time this season. The main strength lies In the pitching: stair, and in a particular in- individual, "Lefty Wooden by name, who has been making a reputation in Petworth through his brilliant wprk as a moundsrhan. It has been Wooden's pitching, more than any one other factor, that has been responsible for the remarkable success of his team. This Is not said to detract fnrm the work of other players on the team, who necessarily are playing great ball, but as a distinct tribute to the veteran, who seems to have taken on a new lease of life. T. M. has shown a remarkable reversal of form in the Central League, and thus far has been a con- tender for the top position. The players to a man have improved 50 per cent. They seem to be taking more interest in the work, and the good fortune of a fast getaway seemed to act favorably on them. Many claim that the of the team is a mere flash in the pan, that It is only a question of time when they will be back at the bottom of the heap. But this criticism is hardly justifiable, in view of the excellent work they have con- tributed in every not In a. single game, but in four.

Regardless of whether it is the races at New London or Poughkeepale that are reviewed, there Appears to be more than the usual dlfTer- i M e of opinion relative to the merits and methods of the various crews and oaches and the outlook for the seasons in come. Paradoxical as it may seem, i here is a complaint that there is not enough racing on the Thames and too much on the Hudson. The keen rivalry at the intercollegiate regatta has led to several statements which, in a roundabout way, intimate that the best crew in the varsity race did not win. The explanations that Cor- nell and Columbia fought so bitterly for supremacy that they were not able to answer the challenge of Syracuse, Wash- ington, and Wisconsin, has stirred up considerable feeling among the gradu- ates of these universities, and not with- out reason. In the usual course of sport- ing Competition the winner of an event Is supposed to represent the best Indi- vidual or team In the contest. Need of aa Explanation. In the case of the PoughkeepsJe race, however, a lengthy explanation appears necessary to account for the defeat of Cornell and the fading away of Columbia. It Is perfectly true that Columbia set a terrific pace, and Cornell rowed at top speed in order to keep abreast, while three of the otfher four eights, pursuing a saner course, rowed some two lengths in the rear until time for the crucial spurt. It .should not be overlooked, however, that Syracuse, Washington, and Wisconsin were ajl within striking distance of the leaders, and husbanded their strength until the proper time for the final effort. generalship, which in rowing Is equivalent to teamwork in football, base- ball, and lacrosse, is part of the scheme of the sport. Because 4'he two crews rep- resenting universities which usually shine at Foughkeepaie failed to follow these and d-id not, on the other hand, have the stamina to finish under the sprinting campaign adopted, is no reflec- tion on the victory of- Syracuse. In the interests of amateur sport it is gratifying to note that Columbia and Cornell men closely connected with the crews end re- gatta refrained from voicing these senti- ments. Those forecasters whose selec- tions were so badly upset should follow suit unless they can secure from the board of stewards the right to disqualify crews which occasionally break the mo- notony ait Poughkeepsie defeating Coach Courtney's great rowing combina- tions. Will Make Many Changes. incidentally It' can be stated Ithat the 1914 regatta will W4tnetw ot changes in both rowing and coaching. If the veteran oal-smen of the universities moat Interested are to be believed, there will no 4-mile sprint next year. In faetl .it is likely that the flrst 2 miles of tlia varsity race W411 be more or lens- of a loaf, so explicit and forceful will the coaches' Instructions be on this point. The elimination of the four-oared varsity crew In favor of junior eights will also flnd favor. Thte change provides places for four additional oars- men not quite varsity type, yet worthy of a place on the regatta program. It will also do ttway with the racing shells with- out which have caused acci- dents and disputes for years. At laat one new coach Will be seen on the for Pennsylvania has se- cured Vivian Ntchalls to succeed iniis Ward as rowing coach. Nichalls, who has signed a three-year contract, will take -charge Of the Quaker crew candi- dates 'next autumn. He Is one of Eng- land's most famous oarsmen, being a. member of thp Leander Rowing Club, of London, an Oxford University graduate, and former holder of the Diamond Sculls and Wlnneld Sculls. With his brother, Nichalls, he won the Henley four- oared championship for several years, and was a member of winning crews In Grand Challenge and Stewards' Challenge cup races. As of the Detroit Rowing since 1909, he has been most success- ful in turning out winning crews, which use a stroke combining the best features of and American watermanship. CoftJt Cre-vr to Come, Also a Paciftc coast crew can be ex- pected to croes the continent for the 1914 regatta, for Coach Conibear, of Washing- ton, stated after the races that should the Seattle oarsmen win the Pacific coast championship, they would enter the Hud- son race next year: Leland Stanford adopted the same plan in 1912, and the University of California stands ready to finance such a trip should the Berkeley oarsmen succeed In defeating both Wash- ington and Stanford. The outlook for rowing at New London Is not so Late reports from New Haven intimate that the English coach- Ing system will be continued next season, and that Harcourt Gold, the Oxford Uni- versity oarsman, will return to assist in the work. This report has not found favor with a number of old Yale grads, arid Harvard men are beginning to grum- ble at the lack of competition afforded in recent years by Tale crews. The situa- tion was summed up as follows by a Harvard alumnus after the sweep of the Thames on June 20: "I know it sounds like he said, "but I am getting tired of these one-sided races. For more than five years now I have been spend- ing good money going to New London to Witness a 1-mlle race followed by a 3-mile procession. Never, Know Real Strength. "Harvard men never know the real cal- iber of their crew since it is an easy task to look like a winner when your oppo- nents are wallowing hopelessly lengths in the rear. The Tale situation has not been clarified by the importing of Eng- lish coaches, and it will take at least two years more to secure a satisfactory line on the rowing system now being tried at New Haven. Like aH los'al Har- vard men, 1 like to see Harvard teams win, but I want to see them win in real contests where honor comes only after a real test and struggle. I have heard it whispered that Princeton is beginning to consider the possibility of entering a freshman crew at Poughkeepsip, and I should like to see what wo could do in a 4-mile row on the Hudson T know that otir crews are good crews, but the retent races at New London havp been too easy to show them at their best.

Time of hour and 45 minutes. In pugilism's Hall of Fame there are two hiches that never would have been there but for the prowess displayed by two fighters who take great pride In the fact that they come of the German race. Both were born in America, but their parents are Teutons, and so, of course, they are German-Americans. If It hadn't been for these two fighting men, who represented two different classes of pugilism, the German In the fighting gamS would not have amounted to much. The "dope" shows that up to the time -that they appeared on the scene there were few who ever had made much of a, splurge In the boxing sea, and this despite the fact that they were not lack- ing in numbers. Billy Papke, the Spring Valley, III., middleweight, was the first to start some- thing for the Germans, and his success left no doubt in the minds of those who follow the sport closely as to whether the boys of his race are made of the stuff of which great fighters! are constituted. Paphe proceeded to settle the argument once and for all by achieving the great- est honor that any fighter may world's championship )n his class. Closely on the heels of Papke came an- other German, who didn't, stop until he had had the honor of occupying the place of world's lightweight champion. His name was Wolgast, and hp hailed from Cadillac, where early in his pu- gilistic career he was honored with the title of "Michigan Bearcat" and "Cadillac Dutchman It really isn't necessary to say a great deal "Wolgast, for every one who knows anything about boxing knows that he was one of the greatest lightweights that ever crawled through the ropes to do battle. Papke and Wolgast were the two boys that carried their race'to the front, for it is hard to flnd any other German who ever achieved anything resembling promi- nence. A few years ago Milwaukee boasted a German named Charlie Neary, who to do things. But Neary merely threatened, for when it came to the real test he was not "there" by a long way. There are a few German-Americans performing at the present time who pos- sess fair class, but seem to be lafcking in the stuff of which champions are made. "Knock-out" Brown, of New York, is one of them, while another Is "Pal" Brown, a Westerner, hailing from Hibblng, Minn. Both are lightweights. Leo Houck, the Lancaster (Pa.) mid- dleweight, gave great promise a couple of years ago, but he has not achieved any 'great success with the padded mitts since then. Al Kaufman, of California, is another German-American of the past, but .41 met his Waterloo at the hands of men who under no circumstances could be rated as topnotchers in the heavy- welghj division. German Must Be Considered. But; going back to Papke and Wolgast shows most conclusively that the German must be reckoned with in the boxing game. The man from whom Papke won the title was credited with being the greatest fighter of modern pugilism, and though Billy did not long hold his laurels, the credit for that victory cannot be taken away from him. Incidentally it is worthy of note that the Illinois "Thun- derbolt" knocked out his man, who hap- pened to be Stanley Ketchel, now num- bered among those who have passed on. Papke had beaten everybody that he met until he bumped up against Ketchel, and in their first battle, a-ten-round af- fair, Stanley was given the decision, which drew a dispute from the Papke forces. Then a twenty-round fight was arranged, and It was in this second mill that Papke won the title from Ketchel by a knockout in the twelfth round. It remained for the next fight of this pair to bring out something unusual in the game. Ketchel turned right around and'knocked out Papke in eleven rounds, regaining his crown. The "Thunderbolt" had held the title for less than three months. Papke is still a member of the fighting- fraternity, but he Is near the end of his lighting string, as his recent bouts show. Wolgast also Is about through with the Same, for he announced not long ago that he would not tight again In winning the lightweight title the Michigan "Bear- cat" turned a trick that no other fighter had been able to turn, and that! was to give the famous Dane, Bat Nelson, a licking. It took Wolgast 40 rounds to, do it, but he certainly did a businesslike job. Nelson nover was the same fighter after that beating. But defeat has to come to the beet of them at some time, and Wolgaot's defeat came just as had that of Nelson and the famous nfgro, Gans, before him.
