Athletics to Win War ( it is the young athlete who is so- .iig to win this war for I'nele .Sam." wrote tin- former Philadelphia star. "1 can see tnis better demonstrated .inch day that I am spending hero on tile tighting line. "The youth who has had an athletic career is winning greater honors than his unathle'ie brother. This war is little mure than a gigantic athletic struggle, eaten I am reminded of ihe big college football game by the way one side pushes an opponent down the field, only to he held on the marvelou* piece of '� i-'or a pre at many years there �a.� on exhibition in an Knglish museum a book of Keats' poems with a mark; on Ihe cover, which was supposed to-' have been the thumb print o't Shelley., tiie poet, who drowned, and taken i from his hand when the body was re-1 covered. Italph Thomas, an Kr.glish ' swimming authority, investigated tlii-historic example of "death grip" and found that the book in question was taken from the pocket of Shelle;*. and . furthermore, that his body was not recovered for two months and that; decomposition had -et in to such an ', extent that even if In- had grasped i tiie book when he drowjed there '� would have' been no procf. I have j heard of many cases of so-called ; "d-'>ath grip," but have never known ' of aiiv one who had firsthand know- J ledge. j Another statement often made is ' that good swimmers often drown. ; This is not so. Captain Webb, who ; .-warn the l-higlish channel, is the ex-! ample often cited to prove this asser- i lion. Webb was killed, if my memory ! is good, in trying some fool stunt in' the Niagara rapids. It is very proba-; hie that he was killed by striking j some rock or snag, but in any case ! ; do not think we would advise iiny one i to try this feat. However, of the ' i'i.i.iiii.i persons; who were drowned in i this country last year investigation i would show- that then- were very f'-w i good swimmers in the- bunch. Many) cases of heart failure in the water are rated as drownings. The good j swimmers usually develop a, very ' great respect for the water and do . not take unnecessary risks. j Don't swim across the lake without j a boat unh-.-s accompanied by at least ' two strong swimmers. j l Don't dive into strange water until' you have actually proved to yourself that tin* water is dee]) enough for the dive in question. If you are a poor swimmer and are wading out into tiie lake keep your face toward the shore so that in rase you step into deep water you will be headed in the right direction. Don't think that you can do everything that you see any one else do.

Mass.. r pt in. -Cheerful �I today hi the lied Sox followers w.ite'u what they firmly believed would be the fit,,t game of the world series between the Hosron Americans and tile Chicago Nationals. Vesterd.n's thrilling contest placed Hoscou in trie ;.-,,,!_ ihrep games to one. and the " Nov.- Knglaml fans expected the team to rlean up the series without unn-'ce.-sary delay. Among the players, however, there was no such assurance that the series would end today. Tin' nibs had lost none of their righting spirit. .Manager Harrow planned to start .lone--, in the box for Boston today, holding .Mays in reserve. Manager Mitchell's decision as to the Chicago pitcher was still held in abeyance early in the day. It was ficured by the fans that he would not be likely to send in any of the men who had participate! in the previous games and their best guess was that the Red Sox would be called upon to face Hen-drix. a right bander. The weather was ideal for this afternoon's clash. Although there was an autumn chill in the air this morning, the brigiit sunshine bade fare to bring back summer-like conditions later in the day.

In America lind the prominent place they have already won for themselves in turf history has done much to boost the sport. Interest In breeding ha*t been (|iiiek-( tied with the bringing (o our shoroa of fa ineu mares. It lias been predicted that the application of the "work or tight" order to all forms of sport would seriously cripple the turf. This, however, is true only to a certain extent. The i I government will hardly apply the order to the horses. If it is applied to the jockeys, no really serious remit.; will follow Many of the leading jockeys are in the draft age, of course, but there are plenty of pilots available who would not be affected by tin; order.
