(Formation of Organization Which Pro
poses to Substitute Events for
University Regattas
Philadelphia, Dec. 2. —The formation
of a new college rowing organization
■which proposes eventually to abolish
the Yale-Harvard and the Poughkeep
me Regattas and institute in their
places a week of racing modeled along
the lines of the English Henley became
.known publicly here to-day when the
establishment of the Collegiate Rowing
Association was announced. This body,
it was reported, was formed 1 at a meet
ing called recently by the University
of Pennsylvania rowing authorities ani
attended by the managers of the Corn
ell, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Navy
and Columbia crews.
Manager Lackey, of the Yale crews,
has been appointed by the association
to draw up plans and regulations which
will be submitted to the rowing author
ities of the various colleges for their
approval and for ratification at the
next meeting of the association to be
held in New Haven.
The reduction of the length of the
championship races from four miles to
three or even one and a half miles was
advocated by several of the managers
at the meeting here and it is proposed
to encourage the smaller colleges and
preparatory schools to take up rowing
as a major sport.
Manager Fred Davis, of the Pennsyl
vania crews, who has been chosen
chairman of the new association, has
announced that the Yale varsity and
junior crews will race the University
of Pennsylvania over the mile and a
half course on the Schuylkill river here
on April 3. Races with Harvard, Prince

Bresnahan Rated With Big Managers as
Roger Patrick Bresnahan proudly
takes his position as second to John
McGraw in the rank of ''champion sal
ary-getters." Bresnahan, according to
advice emanating from "trustworthy
sources" in Chicago, has signed to man
age t'he Cubs for three years at a sal
ary of $ IS,OOO per year. At the ex
piration of this contract, if, in the
meantime, Roger doesn't develop into
a "bull in a china shop," he will have
received from the Chicago Nationals an
aggregate total of 5T7,322 in salary.
Two years ago, after Bresnahan was
given the gate at Kobison Field-, he
signed with Murphy for $6,666 a sea
son. with a cash bonus of SIO,OOO. He
realized en this salary for two years,
getting in ah $23.332. Add to that
$54,000 for the next three seasons and
you have a fortune of $77,332.
Indeed, Roger never has been a
"cheap guy." He served two years
■with the Cardinals on a basis of $lO,
000 and 10 per cent, of the net profits,
and prior to that he was suffering along
on a beggarly allowance of SB,OOO per
annum. Since he won his managerial
chevrons, six years ago, it is believed
that he pulled down upward of $75,-

Estimated Receipts at Harvard Are
SBOO,OOO, More Than Half of
Which Reverted to Treasury—Pre
vious Records at Football Crushed
Does it pay to be a winner! Well,
rather, according to the receipts of the
Harvard football season. Estimates of
the receipts place the amount at $300,-
000, of which more than one-half re
verted to the Harvard treasury.
All previous records for niojiey-Tiuik
ing in football were fractured and
crushed by the figures sot up by
Haughtoei s squad of advanced grid
iron students, lor the new Vale bowl,
with its capacity of 70,000, enabled
the Harvard tram to get over t'he line
and win the honor of being the first
college football team in the United
States to play to more than $300,000
in gate receipts in 'a single season.
The attendance records were also
broken during the season just passed,
and again the Yale bowl made possible
the new record. More than 200,00U
persons saw Harvard play its nine
games. The average attendance at a
Harvard game was 23,300, which
would be a staggering crowd at a ma
jor league baseball game.
The attendance figures grew steadily
at Harvard from the opening ga.iue to
the final contest with Yale. Only at the
Brown-Harvard game in the stadium
on November 14, when the Crimson
substituti o lined up against the Bru
nonians, was the crowd smaller than
it had been on a preceding Saturday.
The three games on the Harvard sched
ule—those with Yale, Princeton and
Michigan—drew 120,000. and the six
games of lesser importance swelled the
figures bv 90,000, bringing the grao i
total to 210,000.
The Harvard Athletic Association is
even now counting up the money taken
in during the season and the official
statement of Harvard finances as a re
sult of its most successful football
season will not be ready for many
weeks. Harvard of course, does not get
all the money paid in by spectators at
the games for the opposing teams got
percentage or liberal guarantees in all
The actual receipts for the Harvard
management will be between $150,000
and $170,000, however, and after all
the football expenses have been de
ducted there will still be a big balance
left to the credit of the 1914 football
team. And inasmuch as nearly all the
other varsity and freshman athletic
teams at Harvard lose money annually,
the football record will defray almost
wholly the deficits rung up by* the los
ing propositions.
The Harvard management realizcJ
before the season began $4,500 from
the sale of about 1,500 season tickets
to the general public at $3 each. These
tickets were good for all games played
by the Crimson except those with
Princeton and Yale. Then about 2,000
H. A. A. tickets, which are issued only
to the Harvard students at $5 eacli,
were sold, adding SIO,OOO to the re
The Bates game at the opening of
season had an attendance of 12,000
and the receipts approximated $6,000
cash. The second contest, with the
Springfield Training school, had a
slightly larger attendance -and the re
ceipts advanced to about the $7,500
mark. The Washington and Jefferson
gajne lured 13,000 to the stadium and
the gate receipts amounted to about
From the day of the Washington
a.nd Jefferson game to the Princeton
game, a month later, the greatest ot
the Harvard stars were out of the game
through injuries. Captain Brickley
was operatecj on for appendicitis while
his team was opposing the W. and J.
combination. Mahan had pulled a ten
don. Pen nock had a bad case of water
on the knee, and there were more in
juries among the lesser lights. In the
next several weeks more of the regu
lars were out, including Trumbull,
Hardwick, Bradlee, l.ogan, Wallace
and Soucv, But through all this mis
fortune the Harvard team continued
to draw and the receipts grew Satur
day after Saturday, even though the
public knew that most of the stars
would be out of the line-up.
On a rainy day the Tufts game
brought out a crowd of 15,000 and the
Penn State team, a week later drew
18,000 persons. For the first time in
history, an October game brought more
than 20,000 spectators when Michigan
opposed Harvard in the great intersec
tional battle. 0.-tober 31. There were
23,000 in t'he stands and the receipts
for the game were nearly $35,000. The
following Saturday Princeton drew
27,000 persons, at $2 each, and the re
ceipts were $54,000.
The Brown game, with only the Har
vard substitutes flaying, was a suffi
cient attraction to lure 20,000 persons
through the turnstiles, and the gate
monev was in excess of $20,000. And
the Yale game, which is reallv old his
torv now, brought out 70,000 spec
tators for a gate total of $140,000.
The whole mass of receipts for the
games in which the Harvard eleven
played were more than $300,000 ami
