Soldiers Like Game. ^ The French soldiers are especially fond of the game and each division boasts of one tr more star elevens. The 20tti corps gave a very creditable account of Itself some days ago, when It met-the champions of 1917. the Associated Francaise, the game ending with a score of 2 to 1. But it is among the younger generation that football has taken a firmer hold. Tiiere are more than .'lOO at Celtic park on May 30 be designated the first of the memorial competitions. Plans for this meet have been fostered by the Irish-American .\thletic club, which is virtually out of athletics because of the war. The date set will be the twentieth anniversary-of the opening of Celtic park, and it was to be in comtnemoration of this that the Irish-American club wished to have a meet there. However, in view of the large part played by Sheridan in the development of elevens in Paris alone, and every i the club, it is believed that P. J.

T PITCHING STAFF There Is something peculiarly impressive about Hugh Ambrose Jennings. He seams to radiate baseball brains, ability to do things and grim confidence. He la known as a fighter and a hustler, and the .'spirit he injects into his players is nothing less thau magnetld. Hugh Jennings on the coaching line Is a sort of dynamo of Inspiration to the members . of his club. Wlien Hughie is out there plugging for a hit, a stolen base, or a run, every member ot his team is plugging just as hard mentally.' And it means something, it means that a break or two in favor of the Tigers is a bigger advantage to them than to any of the otiier clubs_ in the two big leagues. .43 a student  of baseball and a great judge of playerg, Jennings ranks with the best. His ability to teach outfielders, Infielders and catchers the fine points ot the game Is well known, just as well as his uncanny talent of making well organize^ lighting machines' out ot his ball clubs. Jennings' one shortcoming seems to be his inabllft^:.^ to share the usual luck of iiianagers in finding and developing pitchers. It is a shortcoming that no one 'can explain, but it is there. ' In every other way Jennings is a bear, but the pitchers have always been his hoodoo. He has acquired hia knowledge of baseball in years of service. Back in 1894, 1895 and� 1896 he was the leading shortstop ot the National league. He was a mainstay of the old Baltimore champions, and a clubmate of JIcGraw, Brouthers, Carey and Jack'Doyle. He ranked also as one of the league's greatest hitters. Jennings was born in Moolic, Pa., In 1871 and started out as a aeml-pro-playor In 1890. Ho broke Into the National league with Louisville and the following _year, 1893, was traded to Baltimore. Later lie played in Brooklyn and Philadelphia, finally going back to Baltimore as manager of the club, which was then in the liaaturn league. Jennings took a sheepskin away from Cornell university, mixing study with hia baseball to do it. He became so widely known that Detroit tried to purchase him from Baltimore nnd falling that, drafted liira in the tall of 1901). jSinrs that time he lias been In the hhmesB for the Tigers and he has always given Detroit a good club. He Is known as one of the most honorable and fearless managers In the game. Though he has never won a world's title ho lias three American league pennants to his credit. Minneapolis 1, .Milwaukee 3.

The outstanding feature of the Pinehurst golfing season was the remarkable golf played by Mrs. J. V. llurd, of Pittaburg, better known as Dorothy Campbell Hurd, formerly ot Hamilton, Ont. Mrs. Hurd has won more golfing honors than any other woman player. She has held on several occasions the United States championship title, the Canadian title and the championships ot England and Scotland. But it is doubtful whether, as Dorothy Campbell, or at any time after her marriage, she has ever played such consistently fine golf as she displayed at Pinehurst throughout this past season. Mrs. Hurd won every one of the many events in which she toolc part, and won all but one of the numerous twosome Important contests in which she played, the only match lost during the whole season being one of the two contests played with Mrs. Clarence Vanderbeck of Philadelphia, whom Miss Stirling succeeded as national champion. Among' Mrs. Hurd's most noteworthy achievements was the lowering of all records made in recent years by women players on the cbanipionship course, Mrs. Hurd covering the course in 78, which included a 3G for the first nine holes. It was almost a foregone conclusion that Mrs. Hurd would bring her succession ot tournament victories to an end by winning the long-coveted North and South title. This she achieved without any groat difficulty against a strong field, which included. Miss Elaine Rosenthal of Chicago, who won the title last year; Mrs. Ronald H. Barlow ot Philadelphia, whom Miss Rosenthal, succeeded as North and South champion, and several other equally well-known women -players. , . LOCAL PREACe ( CONTINTIBH-FltOM FRONT i'AUB.) St. Paul, Minn., May 3.-Billy Mlske and Jack Dempsey fought a tame 10-round bout here to-night. Neither fighrer gained a commanding lead and a poor draw was the general verdict of newspaper critics. Mlske out-boxed Dempsey most of the fight with the exception of the seventh round, when Dempsey, sinking a hard left to Miske's stomach and putting a right to the Jaw, evened up the battle. Up to that lime .Mlske had claimed three rounds and Dempsey two, with one a draw. Mlske was plainly worried In the seventh but he heW his own the rest ot the way. The fight was without a spectacular feature, Mlske continually resorting to in-fighting. Ho managed to get Inside ot most of Domp-sey'b blows. Mlske landed only one hard blow In the fight, a right cross in the third round. Dempsey scored In the second, third and seventh rounds and his supporters seemingly wore Inclined to give him a shade for this work. On the other hand, those who gave Miske a shade based their verdicts on the fact that lie made Dempsey mlsfl many blows. MAY LOSE HIS MEAL TICKET. Harry Wills May Work Himself Out of a Job. P. C.
