ROSE 606 3rd Ave. So^th L^thbridge c n SH FEN AND AMERICAN ATHLETES Two Countries Held Track and Field Events on Same Day and it is Proven That Britons Have Learned Naw York, July 2S.-The fact that the United States anU English track and field champlonshijjs were held upon the same day, makes a comparison, of the work of the native athletes and their visiting competitors 0� more than u�ual Interest. England's A. A. A. games were held on the famous Oval at Stamford Bridge, London, while the United States championships were being contested at Chicago. Some 17,000 spectators watched the English and Swedish athletes battle far honors ia a drizzle, while about half that number swelter, ed in a temperature close to 100 while American titles were won on a track and in field which failed to elicit any praise from the competitors. Although conditions as reported from both athletic field.'j were against record-hreaking- performances, a remarkable Improvement was shown in the general all-round work of the English and Swedish athletes, indicating that the lessons learned in recent Olympic games defeats have not been forgotten. The English program consisted of fourteen events, of which English athletes won nine and Sweden's representatives five. Four A. A. A. records were established, two by the Swedes and two by English contenders. The United States schedule contained eighteen events In which two new "gamep" records were made, one by an American bom and the other by an Irish athlete. A comparison of the program of the two meets shows that eleven similar event's appeared on both, and with these as a bitsls of oomparlng records proves that the times or distances were better at Stamford Bridge In six of the eleven competitions. To what extent local conditions effected these fisu'.es there Is no way of knowing. The comparison is made simply to show that the oft-repeated statements t'lat European athletes are gradually approaching American standards are not based on idle observation. ' ^ Beginning with the 100, 220 and 410 yard runs England showed a winner In the first two eventsi In the person of W. R. Applegarth, who won in 10 and 21 3-5 seconds respectively, against sprinter Drew's times of 10 3-5 and 22 4-5 seconds at Chicago. HaJf. the Chicago A. A. and Michigan flyer won the 440 yards iy 51 1-5, which G. >flcol did in 49 2-5 at London. Ill both the half and one mile runs,,the--United States figures were bettfiT., Baker, the New York A. C. runiiep, capturfid the 880 lu two min-uteg and 15 seponds. W. Wide, of Swedeni^wii^ner in England, was 2-5 qt a second slower. Norman Tabor yvpn the'mile at Chicago In 4 minutes 20 2-5 secqnds, while Zander, of the Swedish team,. reguired 4 minutes 24 4-5 seconds to take the Elaglish^ title. In the running broad jump Abrahams cleared 22 feet'6 Inches at the A.A.A. games, while Stiles^ the winner at Chicago, did 22 feet 3-4 Inch. The running high jump showed that Richards, the Olympic champion, had but 3-8 of an inch advantage over Baker, England's champion, who jumped 6 feet 1 Inch. Nllsson, the Swedish shot putter, pushed the weight out 47 feet 2% inches, against American Champion Whitney's 46 feet 2 5-6 Inches. In the pole vault and ham-nier throw the Anlerican figures were far superior to those made at Stamford Bridge. As it Often Happens Mrs. Jlpes-Howi do you like your new girl? Mrs. Guraleigh-I don't seem to suit her at all. Buchan^s SALE is certainly drawing big crowds every day.

Ti^cCub president has not decided to do this, but Is seriously thinking of It,, and If the inflelder begins his unruly tactics again it Is possibla Murphy will decide, to continue the practice of tlie local fan.
