PAGE DAILY MONDAY, iUNE IfrttU PREPARING FOR GREAT INTERNATIONAL YACHT RACE Americans Overwhelmed by Score of 8 1-2 to 3 Saturday at Meadowbrook English Team Big Surprise to 40000 classed the .Yankees -llcailowbrook Polo Club, Westhurv, L, I., Jiinc demoral- ized by speed ami team of the English challengers, tlie .-tiiicrican team dmvn defeat here this afternoio iiL.Uie. iitst same of "the malcl for.'ilft International Polo cup by the score" t-o 3. Aftjr ths first flurry in the opening prriod, the defending four never held tway, and fcing.outplayed.ami 'out- El rinted by the HurUnghani team. Defeat came as a''great surprise to 'ilic majority of 'the. special nrs. ivlio had expected American vic- tory, and made the cup defenders 10 .to 1 favorites in previous to the game. They were quick to ap- preciate the brilliant-plar of the in- vaders, however, and stands rang applause at the clever exhibi- tion of team work and shooting of ih2 blue-shirted riders from. England. EXCELLENT IMPRESSION Challengers gave, the finest exhibi- tion ever by a challenging team. Both on attack and defense Ihey played bail into each others' hands, taking few unwarranted chanc- es, and success of these tactics iras proved by the score and case by which they captured the first leg in thc.'.1914 trophy series. It was not tlanc in team irork that the" English players'excelled, however, for their was a revelation. At eith- er forehand or backhanded driving they outclassed the defenders and length and direction of their strokes showed-'benefits gained hy long pre- liminary practice "season which began in [Madrid early in the winter. Play in general was fast and clean, and aside from cropper experienced early in the game by Larry Waterbury, was without a suggestion of an ac- cident. The score was the largest run up in recent years by either United States or English teams in the cup match.. Xot since the "Big Four" de- feated Hurlinghani -club, S 'to 2, in 'the final game of 1909 series when tie cup was regained, have today's figures been exceeded. The game also developed the quickest goal ever made in international cup Capt. Cheapo scored within ten seconds af- ter the throw-in at the beginning of the lourth period. POSTPONE NEXT MATCH Hempstead, L-.I., June to the downpour of rain all night, indi- cations this forenoon were that the second International polo game, get for Tuesday, might have to be post- 'jioned, owing to the slippery condi- ttohf of the lieiu. However, if the weather clears by evening the game may be held.

Joe Agler is one of the cleverest fielding first basemen in the Federal league, or any other, for that matter. He has had several trials in the big leagues; but always was slid back, due to his weak hitting. With the Buffalo Feds he started to knock the cover off the bail, but in a few weeks he dropped off somewhat, and, although his fielding still con- tinues excellent, he doesn't have much luck in knocking them safe.........
