Tho outlook for International sport, on
the whole. Is rather dismal for 1915 from
tha viewpoint, that is, of those who want
to see the matches regardless of tho re
sults. But thero Is Jmany an athlete of
this grand old land thirsting for revenge
for last year who won't mind thirsting
another year or so. Our showing In 1DH
was distinctly flat.
To Mister Baker: Please settlo that
Dooln matter; the suspense Is frightful.
Big salaries, apparently, were only a
drop In the bucket. The Federal League
was Just getting warmed up to some real
spending. Witness tho latest move that
drags organized ball Into the courts. Now
the words of tho lawyers will begin to
fly under tho Inspiration of Fed dollars.
Our Idea of one way to settle tho whole
scrap would be to have a world's series
of all-star teams from each side.
Now that tho Phillies are nearly
through disposing of their stars, has any
one pulled that famous old refrain, "Walt
till next year"?
The question of professionalism is occu

BENDER DENIES HE
WILL JUMP BACK
Is Well Satisfied With Berth on Fed
"Therals absolutely no truth In the re
port that I am dissatisfied with the
Federal League and that I am going back
to organized baseball."
Tho statement aboye was made by
Chief Bender this afternoon when he
was asked If It were true that some club
in- organized baseball had attempted to
wean him back. Bender continued: "I
haven't any kick at all, I am satisfied
with my contract and I aim going to
atay In the Federal League.
"As for any club wonting me to go
back to organized baseball I don't know
anything about that, but I do know that
none of them have said anything to me
on the subject. No, the report Isn't true.
I am going to stick where I am."
Bender Is engaging in shooting matches
most every Saturday and this afternoon
lie again went forth to enjoy a. little tar

Ono of Carey's most remarkable per

He Bkatcd continuously, never leaving tho
track for a mlnuto during tho cntlro 21
hours. Other contestants, much joungcr
than Caroy, wcro forced to take fre

Carey finished many miles ahead of his
In Brussels Carey defeated nearly 50
contestants In an unlimited race. He
skated 43 miles without a Btop, and by
that time every other man In tho race
had been forced off tho track.
Carey holds every European roller-skating
record for one mile up to 21 hours.
Carey mingled In the recent 24-hour
roller-Bkatlng contest In New York, and
at the finish was fresher than any of tho
jouths who were able to stand tho grind.
Carey was born at Pittston, Pa. He is
a trifle over B feet tnll and weighs 115.

WILL NOT FIGHT IN
TED MEREDITH CASE
President McGowan Will
Leave Controversy of Run
ners' Eligibility to A. A.
U. Officials and Penn.
President Andrew C. McGowan, of the
Mcadowbrook Club, of the TV'anamaltor
store, has said his organization will not
enter Into the controversy as to whether
Ted Meredith, tho world's championship
runner, la or Is not eligible to represent
the University of Pennsylvania and the
IMeadowbrook Club In tho Boston Indoor
games When Interviewed In his ofllce
President McGowan mado it evident ho
had not outlined definite plans. He Is
of the belief the matter is clearly a mys
tery vJr the Amateur Athletic Union and
Pennsylvania oITlclals to Bolve.
President Alfred J. LIU, of the Ama
teur Athletic Union, has said Ted will
not bo permitted to compete at the Bos
ton games next month for Pennsylvania.
Meredith has competed for Meadowbrook
during tho collegiate year, nnd It Is on
this particular point that the battle will
rage According to the Interpretation of
the A. A. U. rules, Meredith cannot com
peto save for Meadowbrook In tho open
A. A. U. sanctioned meets. In tho col
lego contests Ted will bo eligible to rep
resent the University of Pennsjlvanla.
Dr. Giorge Orton, coach of Penn's ath
letes. Is of the opinion that Ted may
represent the Mcadowbrook In tho open
A. A. U. meets, and stilt bo eligible to
wear the varsity colors in races that are
closed to collego men Doctor Orton
thinks tho Boston relay race In which
Ted Is entered for Penn Is a collego race,
and, therefore, a closed one. The Boston
games are held under the A. A". U. sanc
tion, and tho relay race In question Is
simply an invitation eent governed by
A. A. U. laws. President LIU bases his
ruling on amateur law. Meredith, It he
Is entered as a Meadowbrook man, will
be allowed to run for that organization
without difficulty, but not for Penn.

three years the Halstend brothers were tho
backbone of tho Cornell Ave. It Is hardly pos
sible that thus early In tho season Coach
bhnrpe has been ablo to develop two other
men up to the form displaced by these great
plavers. As Pennsylvania gives every Indica
tion of having a stronger team than they had
last j car, the gamo tonight should be very
fast from start to finish.
Penn has a new line-up for this game. Will
iamson has won a place for himself at for
ward, while Dvana will replace Hardwlck at
Fuard. Both of these men are very fast and
aggressive. In fact, the great difference be
tween the playing of the Penn team this year
and last will be found In the fact that where
as last year's team seemed bent mainly on
keeping down tho score of their opponents,
this year's five Is putting every effort to
scoring goals. The consequence will probably
be that Penn will have a poorer defensive
record than last year, aa Coach Jourdet pre
dlcta that they will at least double their
scores against their opponents. If this Is true,
Pennsylvania should have a most successful
