Missing a Million
Tho queer turns and shifts that
abound in sport liava been mentioned
before. But 0110 of the queerest to our
zigzag lino of thought is tho lack of
development among tho white heavy
weights of tlie flstlc enterprise.
A littlo more than 4 years havo
now passed since Jack Johnson do
throned Jim Jeffries at Itcno. It re
quired no expett prophecy of that
period to tell that tho first white heavy
weight able to step out and beat John
son had $1,000,000 In sight. Yet with
seven years to work on not a contender
has been developed worth ranking in
the championship class.
With iMi years to work in, look at
tho result Carl Morris, Jess Willard,
Gunboat Smith, Jim Flynn, Frank Mo
ran and Jim Coffey! Not a touch of
science or skill in the lot merely a vast
collection of human flesh and bone,

Coach Orton Put Jumper in Track
Because (Arthur Jack, one of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania's high Jumpers,
failed to improve properly In his special
event, Coach Orton Is now trying to
make a Iialf-mller out of him and with
fair prospects of success. Jack has never
done better than S feet 9 Inches consistent
ly. But he was a good half-mljer be
fore he entered college, and has been per
suaded to try middle distance running.
He Is working out dally with Meredith
and the other half-rollers, and has shown
such good form that he Is likely to rep
resent the University In some of the two
mile relays this winter.
ThB University's four-mils relay team.
consisting of Humphreys, Huston, Doraey
and Sweeney, left town this afternoon for
New York, where they will take part In a
four-mile handicap relay race tonight. As
a team tlieae men do not come up to the
Pennsylvania, standard, and they are ga
ins to New York largely for experience.
