PITTSBURG. Aug-. 21 After a 24-
liour reign as a favorite for champion
ship honors In the national amateur
tournament being; played at Oakmont
club, franris Quimet late this after-
Boon was eliminated by J. Wood Piatt,
North Hnls club. Philadelphia, one up
on the 38th hole.
The defeat of the famous Woodland
club star by Piatt was as sensational
a golfing feat as the contest that
narked the passing of "Chick" Evans
yesterday at the hands of Ouimet. As
a setting to the match a terrific thun-
der storm burt over players and spec
tators Just after the Aew England ex
pert had scuared the contest on the
home green and the two extra holes
were fought out in a pouring rain.
It was the second heavy storm of
the day. and as a result the cour5e was
badly slowed up. both greens and fair
ways being dead, conditions which were
reflected in the play of all the golfers
participating in the third round. Com
pared with his work of Wednesday
against Kvanj, Ouimet's play fell off
badly, but it Is doubtful if this was
due as much to weather and course
conditions as the natural reaction fol
lowing the strain of yesterday's match.
Ouimet's stroke score this afternoon
was 170 for ? holes, as compared with I n-irl. Seattle.

Piatt Proves Ability.
Virtually unknown In national tourn
ament circles until today, Piatt dem
onstrated that he must be considered
as a factor for the championship title,
and his match w-ith P. Davldson-Herron
of Oakmont. one of the four surviv
ing contestants, v-f 11 be watched with
exceptional Interest.
As In all his golfing battles. Ouimet
ltl not go down to defeat without a
drrperate struggle. All even at the
end of the morning round, he played
even more uncertainly during the first
filne holes of the afternoon antl was
tarce down at the turn. On the twenty-
ninth green Piatt was four un. and it
appeared as though Ouimet was des
tined to lose In quick and decisive
fashion. lie got himself in hantl, how
ever, on the next holo and proceeded
to cut down Plait's advantage to two
holes, and from that point on stroked
the ball with such accuracy that, with
one exception. Ouimet either won or
Jvalved hole after hole until, at the end
of the 3S holes of play, the score stood
all even.
Ouimet's End ara.
In the heavy rain the pair teed off
again and although Piatt played cleanly
all the way while Ouimet was in trou
ble, the thirty-seventh was halved.
On the thirty-eighth and final hole.
Ouimet's first two shots were In the
rough while Piatt's second dropped
-within four feet of the pin. Ouimet
took three to reach the green and his
fourtn was a foot from the cup. Piatt
rolled up to the lip of the hole on
Ills third and ended the championship
chances of New England's last repre
sentative by dropping the few-inch putt
for a four and the match.

ScTcnty-Ponnd Mite Finishes
Awards Against Country's Best
Exponents of Aquatics.
Inability to Land on Champ Welter
May Be Big Factor in Outcome
of 8 -Round Battle.
Tonight Is the night of he big- fistic
battle. The principals on this occasion
will be Mike O'Dowd, middleweight
champion of the world, and Jack Brit
ton. wearer of the weiterweignt crown.
They will battle eight rounds to a
newspaper decision at Newark, N. J.
The bout may Just fizzle out as one
of those "affairs," which attracted a
KOOd deal of attention because of the
prominence and prestige of the boxers.
but on the other nana tnere is every
chance in the world for something: to
Jack Britton. although as much Dai
not been said of his ring powers as
some of the other leading fistic lights
of the present time, is one of the great
est battlers that ever drew on a glove.
Britton, although 33 years old, has
been fighting for nearly 16 years and
today is the champion of his class
without a peer. O'Dowd la a rugged,
aggressive, willing mixer and carries
punch in either mitt, out to land
it on Britton will be the worry that
will occupy his mind.
Dan Morgan, Britton a manager. Is
pulling the same stuff that Billy Nolan
pulled on Joe Gans at Goldfield, Nev.,
in the Jack Britton-Mike O'Dowd con
test. The manager of the welterweight
champion forced the middleweight
tltleholder to post a forfeit that he
Eileen Riggin, New York Women's
Swimming association, has been de
clared without doubt the greatest child
mermaid the world has ever known.
This 12-year-old girl tips the scales at
70 pounds and has not only displayed
all around ability never before ap
proached by a girl of her age, but her
feats in free style, breast stroke and
back stroke swimming as well as in
fancy diving have made many of her
full-grown rivals blush.
A few days ago she caused a decided
surprise by entering the 880-yard race
of the Women's Senior Metropolitan
swimming championship. Against her
were pitted three national title holders,
but nevertheless she finished in the
awards. She defeated a former Ameri
can long-distance champion in doing
so. The day after the 880 she thrashed
the 100-yard straightaway, through
lumpy water and a slight contrary tide.
In 1:24 S-5, better time than won cham
pionship laurels in several districts
this year. In 1917 the 100 was captured
over the same course in 1:18.
New York's mermaids have out
pointed in national title tests the girls
of all other cities so that today they
stand out as country-wide leaders in
water sports and present a formidable
obstacle to the ambitions of the ablest
newcomers. But notwithstanding Ell
leen finished third In the national 440
last week, a new record was set in this
event. At breast and back-stroke she
has had no opportunity so far to meet
women opponents, but her perform
ances in the junior class leave no
doubt that she is in line for the high
est honors.
One of the most remarkable features
of this coming champion swimmer is
the finished form she has acquired.
Whether she uses the crawl, the back
or breast stroke her style is well-nigh
perfect. It is a revelation, they say,
to see her glide tlyough the water. She
goes so smoothly and gracefully that
her movements .seem no effort even
when going at top speed.
The Golden Gate swim Is drawing the
attention of the swimming fans. As
usual this event is being staged by the
San Francisco Examiner over the same
course as in past years, from Fort
Point to Lime Rock. This Is the Pacific
coast classic swim and many new sug
gestions have been offered to make It
safer for the entrants. It is proposed
to stretch a fish net across the Gate
on the ocean side so that when the
rip tide sets in no swimmers will be
carried out to sea. The- city fireboats
patrol the course as well as innumer
able launches to guard the swimmers,
but to play safe the net is to be
stretched. The swim will have to start
at full flood tide, which will be about
9:42 A. M., on the date picked (not an
nounced yet). This will give the swim
mers a full three-quarters of an hour
in which to swim before the rip-tide
sets in. The d'stance is seven-eighths
of a mile.
Clyde Swendson, Los Angeles Ama
teur Athletic club, will get away this
week from Los Angeles to compete in
the national high diving champion
ships scheduled for Rye Beach, N. Y.,
August 30. Billy Williams, also of the
angel Institution, Is due in Los Angeles
in a few days, after spending the past
two years in France. Williams gave
an exhibition of diving at the inter
allied games at Paris July 4.
A new world's record for a mile
swim for women was set Friday last
by Ellison McBain of the Duluth Boat
club when stffe covered the distance in
35 minutes, 35 3-5 seconds. The record
amateur mile swim for women in salt
water is held by Claire Galligan (110)
15 turns, 31 minutes, 19 3-5 seconds.
Annette Kellerman negotiated the dis
tance in 32 minutes, 44 seconds, in Aus
tralian water.
