TWO O O L
The whole affair, has, to a considerable extent,
assumed the proportions, not so much of a contest
between nations for the championship of the world
as of a battle between one whom we admire simply
for his brawn and one to whom we pay respect be-
cause of his reputedgentlenty energy and hero-
ism. It is a combat of -man against man, of skill
and alertness against brawn, and neither the honor
of France nor that of America enters very greatly
into our latest little international fistic argument.
If the reports we receive as to the fighters' char-
acteristics are true, a victory for Carpentier should
mean a victory for better and cleaner sportsmanship
in the jaw-punching field.
BASEBAL AND THE JAPS
Although baseball was only introduced into Japan
some ten years ago, and although it has long been
considered our own national game: the Waseda uni-
versity.nine, playing here yesterday and Tuesday,
denionstrated very clearly that we have not a mon-
opoly on the sport. Thliclittle fellows from across
the Pacific, though weak i batting it is tree, seem
to have developed a degree of skill in fielding andin
team-work that might 4nake any American team sit
up and take notice.
No doubt we have little reason to worry or fret
for fear our great national pastime will be taken
over by another nation. Nevertheless, it is possible
that we may ultimately see the day when world-wide
competition on the diamond will come into being.
Such excursions as the Japanese squad is making
this year, and such foreign trips as the one taken to
Japan last season by a team from the University
of Chicago, should be of cdnsiderable benefit in pro-
moting enthusiasm for sports and also in improv-
ing friendly relations between. nations. Good clean
competition on the diamond, the gridiron, in the
water, or on the track, cannot but make for a closer
feeling between the contending parties, and certainly
international competition of the sort carried on of
late in baseball is a thing to be -encouraged.
If nothing else, such contests as have been played
here this week in our two-game series with Waseda
should help to keep American teams and coaches on
their toes, with a realization tlat we will have to
work to hold our place on the diamond. The Jap-
anese are to be comended for their skill and enter
prise, but we must not let them beat us at our own

The French have a new two cylinder car which
sells cheaply, and they call it the "Francon." Per-
haps the name of ours isn't quite as high sounding
as the new French design, but we have one ad-
