Bobby Evans Enable to Join Colors.
Because of Physical Disability.
Bobby Evans, well-known boxing
promoter of Portland and handler of
several boxers, considers that he was
born under an unlucky star. After
making two attempts "to do his bit" by
enlisting Evans has found it impossible
to get by the examinations.
His last attempt was made last week
and he was notified yesterday that his
heart was such as to prevent him from
being taken along with one of the Am
bulance Corps being organized in Port
land. While In Spokane recently Evans
rays he tried to get into the Marines
but the same defect caused his rejec
tion. He figures now that he will have
to "go back to the land" in order to
do his share for Uncle Sam.

Mails quit the ' Beavers suddenly
last Sunday, announcing that he
had accepted a position in a
Seattle shipyard. Judge Mc
Credle ascribed his jump to fear
that he might be drafted for
trench work in France. While
Mails' friends ridiculed this mo
tive, the jibes of workers likely
are what caused Malls to jump
back to baseball to disprove the
"slacker" charge.

Low Net Scored on Second
Leg on H. Ft. Everding
Golf Trophy.
Many New Members to Be Admitted

Flayers to Take Part in
Tourney at Waverley.
Mrs. Charles Canada won the second
"leg" on the H. K Everding golf trophy
in the June competition at the Portland
Golf Club Sunday. It is a medal handi
cap tournament, the low net winning.
Mrs. II. L. Pratt won in May. After
four months the four winners will meet
in match play handicap for permanent
ownership of the sterling silver vase.
At a special meeting of the board of
directors of the Portland . club it was
unanimously voted to extend the offer
of 12 free lessons to new members un
til October 1. As the new nine holes
are rapidly nearing completion the bars
have been let down and about 75 new
members will be taken into the thriving
organization south of the city. The
club is making wonderful strides and
within another year will be one of the
finest and strongest golf organizations
on the Pacific Coast.
The regular grass tees at the Waver
ley Country Club will be thrown open
today for the first time since the re
sodding was begun two or three months
ago. The new tees are beauties and no
doubt will be fully appreciated by the
contestants in the Pacific , Northwest
Patriotic championship meet which will
open Monday at "Waverley.
Thomas B. McGlll, a veteran player
of the Olympia Fields Golf Club, Chi
cago, is a visitor in Portland And may
enter the Northwest tournament. Play
ing In a match yesterday with Russel
Smith, John Napier and his son, George
B. McGill, the Chicagoan turned Jn an
82. George McGill is the Portland Golf
Club champion.
"This Waverley course is beautiful,"
declared the elder McGill yesterday,
following his round. "I would like to
live and die out here. We have quite
an organization back in Chicago. By
next year we will have three separate
courses, one for the women, .On one
of these you can play 18 holes and not
once face the sun."
A. C. U. B rry, chairman of the trans
portation committee at Waverley, has
signed up the owners of 38 machines
to help transport the army of visiting
golfers next week to and from the
club during the Northwest tournament.
Nine of these will be on the run con
tinuously. The Willamette encroached on the
Waverley course yesterday higher than
at any previous time. C. H. Iavis, Jr.,
president of the Pacific Northwest As
sociation, hopes for cooler weather dur
ing the next few days In the Idaho and
Eastern British Columbia country. A
little touch of frigidity in those sec
tions would stave off -a flood in the
Willamette and would not interfere
greatly with the Northwest golf tour
nament. At present portions of the
17th and 18th fairways are covered by
two feet of water. Unless the flood
rises, however, the water will not se
riously interfere with play.

Young: Men's Christian Association.
"I first ran up against this," said Mr.
Jackson, "whra I studied the tlgrures
which an anthropological examination
of a prominent swimmer gave me. I
found, to my astonishment, that his
chest expansion was a bare three and
one-half inches.
"The same day that I gave him his
measurements I had a slender, gawky
youth with scarcely a muscle across his
chest and yet this same skinny fellow
had a chest expansion of nearly five
inches and he came near Mowing the
top off the spirometer.
"From this I came to study swim
mers as a class and I believe that,
taken as a class of athletes, the swim
mers have the least chest expansion
of any group you will find. At the
same time they have probably the
greatest chest muscles of any class of
athletes, unless It be the rowers and
weight throwers.
"It Isn't the fellow that can swell up
his chest that makes the greatest mark
in the athletic world or any other
realm for that matter."
Friends of Mrs. Ernest Smith, who,
before her marriage, was Margaret
Brack and known as one of the best
quarter-mile swimmers of the West,
while sorry for the technicality which
deprived her of first honors in the re
cent swim across the Golden Gate, are
elated at the showing she made after
several years' retirement from compe
tition. Mrs. Smith was the flrst swim
mer to cross the strait last week, but
due to the fact that she passed on the
wrong side of a buoy which marked
the course, was disqualified and the
race awarded to Miss Frances Cowells.
It Is now hoped that Mrs. Smith may
be Induced at some future time to at
tempt the swim again in an endeavor to
break the record of 41 minutes and 15
seconds set by Miss Cowells over the
course, which approximates a mile and
a quarter. Mrs. Smith's official time,
when disqualified, was given as 28
minutes, 17 4-6 seconds.
The crowds which are attending the
games of the Pacific Coast Baseball
League are being treated to all kinds of
playing and the spectator who buys his
admission is unable to tell what will
be in store for him. A team which will
play "air-tight" ball on one day
will allow opponents to pile up runs
the next day with unheard-of prodigal
ity. Men and women in the stands and
bleachers do not seem to mind how
many runs are scored as long as one
team does not get an unrecoverable
lead from the other. A 14-to-13 score
apparently causes more excitement and
entertainment than a 2-to-l tally.
When one team gets a big lead over the
other, however, it does not take long
for the people to begin nling out of the
grounds before the end of play is
reached. In a recent high-score game
the two teams changed positions four
times before the game was finally won.

A. B. Swift Loses to C. L. Wolf in
Championship Flight.
ST. JOSEPH. Mo., June 20. Alden B.
Swift, of Chicago, picked by numerous
critics to be the leading contender
against Harry Legg, of Minneapolis,
the titleholder in the Transmisslssippi
Golf Tournament here, was defeated
in the second round of the champion
ship flight today by Clarence L. Wolf,
the youthful player from St. Louis,
medalist of the tournament. The
youngster played a brilliant game
while his more experienced opponent
fell down badly on the greens.
Legg broke the course record this
afternoon with 73 for 18 holes, and
was an easy winner thi afternoon over
his opponent, J. A. McClelland, of Kan
sas City, four up and two to go. Legg's
golf was the best thus far for the tour
nament, and the Minneapolis man now
is being picked to succeed to his own
title through the brilliance he has
shown in putting and driving.
R. W. Hodge, of Kansas City, de

36 holes today.
The play this afternoon was much
faster than at any other time during
the tournament.
St. Joseph men were all eliminated
from the play for the title today.

an old-time player like Jimmy this is
getting to be a regular habit.
That ball players are patriotic has
been proved by the many acts the stars
of the diamond have done to date. Most
of the players have taken up military
drill and subscribed for the liberty
loan. During the Cub-Quaker game the
other day the players went into the
stands and acted as salesmen for the
bonds. A scheme of averages was
worked out whereby a hit was credited
to each player disposing of $1000 worth
of bonds. A two-basrsrer called for
$2000, a triple called for $3000, and a
homo run was the reward of a $4000
sale. The averages showed that Catch-

York Giants, on June 8 played his 350th
consecutive game for McGraw's team.
Burns started his long run April 15,
1915, the opening day of the season.
This run sets a National League rec
ord. During' this run Burns went to
bat 1400 times, scoring 217 runs and
making 395 hits, which gives him an
average of .282. He caught 624 flies,
made 83 assists and 25 errors, giving
him a grand fielding average of .963.
One report from Washington has it
that Clark Griffith is so discouraged
because of the poor success of his team
that he is willing to sell his Interest
and retire. It does not seem to be
denied that Griffith sounded Fielder
Jones on a proposition to take over his
interest, but Jones declined, saying he
could not see Washington as a base
ball city. Another plain of Griff's was
that the two of them go in 'together.
