Michigan, 844-unknown opponent,
The first match in the regular inter-
collegiate tournament conducted by
the National Rifile association was
held on the range of Michigan's Rifle
club yesterday afternoon. Ten targets
were turned in but only the five high-
est totaling 844 were given official cog-
The Wolverine sharpshooters engag-
ed an unknown and unseen rival. The
manner in which the matches are con-
ducted makes it possible for the teams
not to see each other because each ag-
gregation fires on its own range. This
time even the opponent's name was
not made known so that the Michigan-
ders turned in a team score of 844 out
of a possible 1,000 against an unknown
opposition. Contrary to all conjecture
regarding the .personnel of this year's
team four of the five high men are
newcomers. The off-hand shooting
proved to be the stumbling block of
the veterans although most of them
turned in perfect scores from the
prone position. The following is a
list of the men and, their respective
scores, H. Waterbury, 181; M. New-
man, 171; M. B. Cutting, 165; F. S.
Huyck, 165; A. H. Jacoby, 162. Team
total, 844.
The next match will take place eith-
er Monday or Tuesday of next week,
since yhe targets must be ready by
Wednesday so that the authorities at
Washington. may get them by Thurs-

should add another race to the Pough-
keepsie program for 145-pound crews.
"There are many excellent little
oarsmen at Penn, and I am sure the
situation is the same at Cornell, Sy-
racuse, Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and
Annapolis," said Mr. Wright.. "These
little fellows are really fine oarsmen,
-but their size is such that they have
no chance to make the college eight.
Once in a while an extra fine wee chap
in a season of famine will make the
bow seat in his college eight, but this
seldom happens,"

are several well known football play-
ers who have been wounded or killed
in action on the western front. L. J.
Moon, who has died of wounds, was
one of the few men to gain a "double
blue," having represented his univer-
sity at both cricket and football. At
Westminister school he gained his col-
ors for cricket and soccer, and on go-
ing to Cambridge he proved a great'
acquisition, playing football against
Oxford in 1898, 18t9, and 1900, and
cricket in 1899 and 1900. He was also
an active member of the Middlesex
County Cricket club, and in 1905 tour-
ed America with E. W. Mann's team,
and a few months later sailed for
South Africa with the picked team un-
der the charge of P. F. Warner. At
soccer he played regularly for the Old
Westminsters and Corinthians, and
toured with the later in Hungary and
Lord Lucas of the Royal Flying
Corps, killed, rowed No. 7 behind the
famous Harcourt Gold in the universi-
ty boat races of 1898 and 1899. Cap-
tain H. J. Spencer, who has died while
on active service, was a fine all-round
sportsman, and stroked several win-
ning crews for the Tyne Rowing club.
He was also a Rugby footballer, and a
vice-president of the Northcumberland
Rugby Union. Second Lieutenant E.
Fisher, killed, was the public schools'
hurdles and bong jump champion in
1915 nad joint holder of the high jump
championship. Jack Wetter, the fam-
ous Newport and Welsh Rugby three-
quarter and baseball player, who was
serving in the South Wales Borderers,
is reported killed. Lieutenant Claud

de la Mothe, missing, is the well
known Rugby footballer who repre-
sented the western counties in the in-
ternational trial games. H. Dunk, kill-
ed in action, was one of the best water
polo players in ngland; he represented
Cloucester county, and was the holder
of 14 water polo medals.
Golf Champion NIilled
A. G. Gray, the open. golf champion
of South Africa, has been killed on the
Somme. . He is the second holder of
that title to fall in the war, J. A. W.
Prentice, who was the winner in 1913,
besides several times carrying off the
South African amateur championship,
being the other. Two very well known
flyweight boxers have made the big
sacrifice in Dido Gains of Lambeth
and Billy Taylor of Bethnal Green,
who were serving in the Sportmen's
battalion. Soccer football has lost
players by the deaths of J. Williams,
a member of Milwall- and Crystal Pal-
ace clubs; John Coupe of the Border
regiment, who was famous in mid-
Lancanshire football circles, and J.
Smith of Birmingham and Chesterfield,

Irish international forward, has been
Casualties among the leading sports-
men of England continue to grow, a
recent list containing the names of a
number of stars in several branches
of sport. Colonel M. F. McTaggart, D.
S. 0., wounded, is a well known sports-
man. He played polo for the Lancers
in the inter-regimental, and was in
the team which ran up for the Sub-
alterns' Cup at Raneleigh in 1904. Col-
onel McTaggart rode for many years
at th7 regimentaol meets, and owned
some useful chasers. He was with Sir
Goerge White during the siege of
Ladysmith and fought at landslaagte,
Riefontein, and Lombard's Kop.

I'our Eights Rowing at Washington
Seattle, Wash., Jan. 25.-At the Uni-
versity of Washington they are en-
thusiastic about entering a crew in
the Poughkeepsie regatta. The stu-
dents have already raised a fund of
$5,000 to send the crew east this sum-
mer. The trip, however, is conditional
on whether Washington is able to de-
feat Stanford and California, so that
it may appear in the east as the coast
champion. Six of last year's veterans
are now at work. Coach Conibear has
four eights working at present.
Sport on Skils at Dartmouth Now
Hanover, N. H., Jan. 25.-The Outing
club of Dartmouth has invited more
than 160 colleges to take part in the
winter sports carnival which will be
held Feb. 8 to 10. A number of events

first events of the intercollegiate ski
and snowshoe contests will be held.
Among the novelty ski events will be
an obstacle race, an interclass ski re-
lay, a 220-yard dash on skiis, and a
snowshoe race at the same distance.
There will also be a cross country ski
New Shell Is Ordered for Penn
Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 25.-Penn-
sylvania oarsmen have ordered a view
eight-oared shell from Davy, the boat
builder of Cambridge, Mass. It will
be of the swivel type and will embody
a number of Coach Wright's own ideas.
Last year Pennsylvania used the thole-
pin, but Wright has had more experi-
ence with the swivel, having been ac-
customed to this type of rigging when
coaching the Argonaut club of Canada.
At present it is planned to let the oars-
men have two weeks' practice on the
Delaware before leaving for the final
bit of training at Poughkeepsie,
Quakers Are Eager for 1Hokey Team
Philadelphia, Jan. 25.-Students at
the University of Pennsylvania have
petitioned the faculty to include hockey
in the list of athletic sports. Many
students at the Quaker institution
played the game in their preparatory
school days, several of them being
hockey players of note. Recently a
number of those interested inspected
the ice at a Philadelphia rink and re-
ported it satisfactory for playing the
game. The petition which was circus

lated reads: "We, the undersigned, do
hereby petition the faculty committee
of the University of Pennsylvana, for
their sanction in forming a hockey
team to represent the university."

Football Coach Says He Will Insist
Upon Contract Calling for
Philadelphia, Jan. 25.-Unless Head
Coach Bob Folwell decides to reduce
his terms for coaching the University
of Pennsylvania football eleven next
fall there is a strong possibility that
he will not return to the Red and Blue
with which he had such success dur-
ing the past season.
Folwell has been in the far west on
a hunting trip, having remained behind
when the team returned from the game
with Oregon at Pasadena, Cal., on New
Year's day. He has returned to Phil-
adelphia and will meet the football
committee, to discuss matters in detail.
While in the west Folwell stated in
positive terms that he wanted $8,000
for his services next fall.
Wharton Sinkler, chairman of the
football committee, refused to discuss
the situation further than to state that

no coaches had been signed f tr 1917.
This means that the selection of the
assistants is being held tp to await
the decision on the head coach.
While Mr. Sinkler would not commit
himself on anything further pertain-
ing to the re-engagement of Folwell,
it is known that the committee is not
willing to meet Folwell's figures of
$8,000. It is said that the committee is
willing to give a slight advance over
the $5,000 paid last season, but that it
will not go to as high a figure as Fol-
well has named,
