From his scrutiny of tho Rebels he de
ckled that they wero "a good sort" and
a "keen bunch." From time to time ho
caught snatches of conversation from
their long table; once he was aware that
several of tho players turned to look at
him, and he blushed over his salmi.
At another tnblc he recognized his ac
quaintance of the morning. Ho seemed
to be telling a very funny story to soveral
young men, who laughed Immoderately,
and J. Arthur had an unpleasant sus
picion that they were talking about him.
When he came- down Into the lobby,
cairylng his suitcase, the old man In
troduced him to several members of the

Tho ball players grinned nnd offered
their hands, passing him from one to tho
other. The ceremony was quite formal.
Some of them looked hard at tho yollow

"No; you better limber up with tho rest

Tncrn began the process ot taming the
haughty spirit. J. Arthur Haskins. who
had counted on electrifying the baseball
population without warning, was permit
ted to plav "catch" with the other prom

not even allow him to take his turn at
batting rractke on the first day, and this
was a bitter blow.
During the gnme J. Arthur, roosting on
tho extreme end of the bench, saw lit to
criticise the performance of "Tib" Con

other raw recruits held their breath when
they heard him.
"He doesn't think fast enough." argued
J. Arthur. "He's a good fielder, though.'
Shanghai Scott, ono ot the pitchers,
overheard the remark.
"First class In baseball stand up! he
said. Some of the players laughed;

to E. B. Jackson, manager of the Pack

"I drove a Packard Twin Six from
Philadelphia to Pittsburgh today In 9
hours and 20 minutes elapsed time. I
checked out at the Bellevue-Stratford at
5:28 this morning and In at the Schenley
at 2:46 this afternoon, thus establishing a
new record for this difficult 301 miles of
winding and mountain road. Best pre

8 hours 63 minutes. This required changing

had no tiro trouble."

to the varsity four-oared race until It
was displaced by the Junior eights last
year applies to this race, and any oars

Question, ns he was misinformed that
the old rule of 10 years ago, which was
applied to the Junior races held la Stay
between Columbia, Cornell nnd Pennsyl

ticipating who rowed In a former -varsity
crew, was the law for this race.
