SPORT IN OTHER LANDS UNIQUE FAMILY RECORD IN IRISH INTERNATIONAL HOCKEY. SIX BROTHERS ARE INTERNATIONAL, PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 1 February 1913

SPORT IN OTHER LANDS UNIQUE. FAMILY RECORD IN IRISH INTERNATIONAL HOCKEY. SIX BROTHERS ARE 1NTBIINATIO.VAI, PLAYERS. One hears at times of wonderful records of families, who have made their names famous by their prowess at cricket, football, rowing, etc., but I doubt If in any klod of sport there Is a family to equal' .the splendid record of the six brothers Petersen of Irish hockey fame. For the past eleven years no. Irlflh hockey team has been representative wlthont one or more of the Petorsen family, and now that the most famous of all. Walter Petersen, the' right full back, has announced 'his definite retirement from the International arena, Irish hockey will know them no more, and a few details of their wonderful career will be of more than passing Interest. . j Educated at Avoca School. Dublin, ail six learnt their hockey there and played for the school from 1K»5 to 18PS. Mi IMS* and ISi'P the brothers N. and C. Petersen Joined .the Car- I rickmlncs Club, but In the following ...

Since' the days of th'«-J famous player;- *J.' O'Conncr. 'who was undoubt edly the finest back Ireland has ever produced. j.Walter -Petersen has had no equal,' and all ! hockey players will regret to hear that he ha* bcej\ compelled to give up the game owing to knee trouble. The wonderful stick play was onc of tbe groat features of tbe family, and it always appeared just as easy for any of them to play thc ball in mid-air as on the ground. Thc record of five brothers playing at the same time in an international side Is probably unique in any branch of sport, and is a truly wonderful career, of which they and Irish hockey players may well be proud.— 'Sporting Life.'

PRAISE OF HUGHIE MEHEGAN. - 'MAY YET CARRY ROUND A WORLD'S TITLE.' The Australian, Mehegan, will yet have to be seriously reckoned with, saya the 'Sporting Life.' Hc is not so old as Welsh, neither has ?he had anything like thc same experience, and he may be accounted unfortunate ?n meeting thc man who has been aptly described os a ?wizard when tho latter was risht at the top of his form. Thc Australian differed In many ways from N the tnan wr saw against Matt Wells, hut that he is a great boxer admits of no doubt. He Is really not slow— It was only amazing quickness tfnt made him appear to be so ; aud be is a tinker, and a fine tactician. Mehegan has made himself a prime favorite ou this side, as wus evidenced wh?n he unfurled Mr flag prior to making his speech in the ring. | T»(. Is young enough to be able to afford to take /, defeat : a day may conceivably dawn— anJ that at nn distant date— when he will carry r.round a world's title.

WRONG AND RIGHT METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 1 February 1913

: WRONG AND RIGHT METHODS. * 'Two-twenty-yards' is the distance fixed for breast races. Nothing less than a mile should be fixed upon. It Is not the method one would use to swim 220 yards. I quite admit that many swimmers make hard work of the breast stroke, and aro very tired after covering a short distance. But this I? caused by wrong methods. Too much strength Is put into it. Style is Ignored, and much more vigor Is ap plied than Is necessary. Most swimmers bring the arms back sooner than they 6hould. and also bring them back too far, thus losing in speed and spectacular effect. The bands should shoot out simultaneously with tbo kick, and the body be sent forward at the came time. Afterwards the hands should be brooght back. The legs should be widely kickcd, with a very loose knee action— just as though your legs did not belong to you. There should be no stiffness, and nothing like the amount of power put into the kick .\s is em ployed generally by swimmers. ; Anyone who has mast...

A PLEA FOR LONGER DISTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 1 February 1913

' A PLEA KOU LONGER DISTANCES. In this connection k ntJould bo mentioned! that thoso responsible for putting -20 yards breast-stroke races on their programmes pro bably do so because long races would prove monotonous. There Is something in the con tention. But if the carnivals were attended as they should be they could find some means o^ giving a long race for 'chesters,' and perhaps running at tho same time some side show that would not in any way interfere with the race. Cecil Healy, who has travelled far and wide, says our carnivals are the best In tho world, ODe Can quItc Relieve It. The diving ex-1 hibltions alono are worth going to see. Still, I maintain that a 22U yards race for the breast stroke is not far enough. Will somo influential member of tho% Swimming Associa tion back mo up and endeavor to have the dis tance lengthened ? If so ho will do swimming a good turn. In another part of this issue Mr. Hcaly suggests a race on the Nooean. River. 1 A splendid suggestion. What ...

LAWN TENNIS CHAMPIONS THE BROOKES V. PARKE MATCH - Continued from Poge 4.) At set nil the crowded stands simmered with expectancy of good things ir. the final bout, j«nd they were in ? no wise disappointed. Brookes started serving, and won the game easily, two of his corner deliveries being quite cut of tho agile Irishman's reach. Pnrke. after a protracted struggle, in which he showed re markable speed, evened at 1 all; but it was clear to onlookers that he was having to work mighty hard to win his own j.orvice, for Brookes, taking it on the rise mostly, would l«ook It to tho Irishman's backhand corner, fol low in, not wearily, as In November, but ener getically. and the answering drive, which, though from a defensive position, and mado on the run, came with wonderful par.-?, would oe cut across to the mid-court position.

CURRENT TOPICS IN THE TURF WORLD BY 'PILOT.' After a holiday, it is difficult to settle down to work again, and, where racing is concerned. It is amazine how quickly you get out of touch with form. It mlfjht lie supposed that an ab sence of two or three weeks from metropolitan meetings would make little difference to any one, ttut I fancy that most regular racegoers will admit it takes considerable study of re sults at fixtures they have missed, in addition to visits to a few meetings, to fairly set them into their stride apaln. 1 was not present at the A.J.C.
