BT ROSCOE FAWCETT.
As a result of second-round matches
yesterday at Waverley the race for the
1917 Pacific Northwest golf title Is
narrowed down to eight men Jack
Neville and Arthur Vincent, of the San
Francisco Golf and Country Club: Ru
dolph Wilhelm and William Gotelli, of;
the Portland Golf Club: Ellis "Bragg
and R. C. F. Astbury, of Waverley. and
"Dixie" Fleager and Paul Ford, of the
Seattle Golf Club.
Aside from the victory of the Port
land Golf Club team over the Seattle
Golf Club in the C. II. Davis. Jr., cup
competition, the feature of the ex
tremely hot day was the elimination of
Clyde Graves, of Spokane, by R. C. F.
Astbury, of Waverley, 1 up on the 18th.
Graves put Russel Smith out the day
The 16th. proved Mr. Graves' Water
loo. With the match all square and
both playing sensational golf, Mr. Ast
bury sunk a two from off the green on
the 16th and this lead he maintained
through the next two holes.
KinlKhea Are Exciting.
Several other exciting finishes were
served tip to the galleries.
J. R. Straight took "Dixie" Fleager
to the 19th hole and then lost to the
Seattle champion by a stymie. Flea
ger was down or square all the way
to the 18th. He holed a tricky ten
foot sidehlll putt on the 17th when a
miss would have put him into the dis
card. They halved the 18th with 6s
and Fleager won on the 18th with a 4,
Straight running into a dead stymie.
Both shot 75 medal.
William Gotelli. the 20-year-old Port
land Club phenom, also negotiated a
75, eliminating J. H. Ballinger, of
Wilhelm Get Thrllla.
Charles Maud, the veteran Califor
nian, who held the Coast champion
ship in the old bicycle days, gave Ru
dolph Wilhelm a few thrills, but the
Northwest open champion eventually
nosed out a win, 2 up and 1.
Ellis Bragg, of Waverley, shot a
76 and defeated Charles Miller, a fel
low member, 1 up.
J. J. Dempsey, of Tacoma. played
sensationally, but had to bow Defore
the superior prowess of Arthur Vin
cent, a California expert. Vincent, by
the way. won the Michigan State
championship last year.
Jack Neville defeated W. J.Noonan,
of Tacoma, 4 up and 3, and Paul Ford,
of Seattle, won from Roscoe Fawcett
on the 17th green, 3 up and 1.
Neville Mar Meet AVllhelm.

Rudy Wilhelm turned some brilliant
golf in the Davis cup match. Natur
ally, the dope figures him strongly in
the finals against the winner in the
upper half. Neville is playing rather
more consistent golf than some of the
others in this bracket. Good-sized gal
leries follow him in every match.
Women's Play Interests.
First-round matches in all the flights
and the first round of the women's
championship rounded put a busy day
Women champions and ex's met with
a multitude of vicissitudes during the
day. In the championship first-round
matches Mrs. Feter Kerr and Mrs. J.
A. Dougherty, two Oregon title-holders,
were eliminated, while Mrs. Elizabeth
Curran, of Tacoma, former Northwest
champion, met her Waterloo in Miss

T'S a fine thing to sit around the

there's a whole lot more fun sitting
about this same No. 19 and butting in

as the other fellow is buying while
you are talking about the team. Every
body buys while listening.
That's why the Portland Golf Club
should find the "extra hole" a real
cozy corner sort of a place for the
next twelfthmonth; for it is the bunch
from Raleigh Station that has proved
to the satisfaction of everybody that
they have the best four-man team In

The start will be made from the Port

when all was said and done, this same

it clear, one hole up out of 36. If the

He also must grasp the idea that it
has taken many words to convey that
the Portland Golf Club has the best
four-man team in the Pacific North
At Spokane last year Waverley beat
Seattle by three holes. The Waverley
team was composed of Russ Smith, C.

Fswcett's I'layina; Saves Day.
In yesterday's pairings Fleager and
Ballinger met Rudy Wilhelm and Ros
coe Fawcett, and Paul Ford and George
Tilden were pitted against Jack
Straight and, Billy Gotellt. As things
eventuated, golflcally, the former team
lost by two holes and the other team
won by one hole. One from two leaves
one; hence, and consequently, Portland
won. by one.
Fawcett, who was too modest to
write this story, saddling it onto
stranger in the town, saved his team
from a poor showing in the first nine
holes of play. His partner, Wilhelm
was all over the lot, at the outstart, and
almost in the next township several
times. On the second nine Wilhelm
played most brilliantly, and Roscoe
simply sat back on his haunches, lost
in admiration of what Rudy was doing.
In the other match Gotelli and
Straight were playing a good in-and
out game, taking their turns at doing
something for the good of the cause,
They were fighting all the time. They
made mistakes at the finishing hole,
where Cotelli used a new driver foi
the second time this season being
kicked on the shins for this faux pas
by Professional Harry Pratt when h
drove the first out of bounds an
where Straight missed a swell chance
for a half by overplaying his approach
putt and missing coming back.

But. at that, the god of Luck was
with them, when Ford missed a three
foot putt for a win at the 17th an
when Tilden took three putts inside
the lD-foot mark at the 16th; only to
get a half. . So, as golf goes, they won
on the mistakes, but by two to one.

match would have gone to the extra

the fourth, 12th and 15th paragraph
in favor of Portland, by one hole up,
At the turn the Wilhelra-Fawcett
team was one down. Just ahead of
them, the Straight-Gotelll team was
turning all even. It was on the secon
nine, then, that the match hinged
and Willielm delivered the goods.

BATTER IS SAFE AT FIRST
Point Raised Over "Unusual Play Is
The following question has been
asked: Runner on first base with one
out. Batter hits infield fly which is
dropped by fielder, but is recovered
and thrown to second, forcing runner
at second. Batter in meantime has
crossed first base and thinking him
self out under the infield fly rule he
walks toward the bench. He discovers
his error and again starts to first base.
Before reaching the base the ball has
been held there. Does this act force
batter out or must he be touched with
ball before again recovering the bag?
Would batter have been out had he oc
cupied the bench In the meantime?
Answer: Batter is safe at first base.
He must be touched out.
