Western Golf Champion Delighted
With Trip, but Resents Criticism.
"One of the best courses I ever
played on. and a great series of
matches," is the tribute Charles
("Chick") Evans. Western golf cham
pion, pays to the Waverly Country Club
links and the competitions which ended
last night.
"It has been a splendidly successful
trip and, I hope that the tour, the long
est ever made In this country by a team
j,g-f?,J'La' vU1 brlnT the Northwest
and Middle West closer together.
"We came out here as missionaries,
to spread the gospel of golf, and I
hope that we have succeeded. The
game Is increasing In popularity at a
wonderful pace, and I am glad to find
that the Northwest Is not trailing the
rest of the country in club interest,
although the public courses are few.
"As for us. we have had a pleasant
and Instructive trip, making many
friends, having our eyes opened tv a
great country, and learning much o
team play."
Evans, a simon-pure amateur. is
much incensed over an attack made on
the Middle Western team by an East
ern writer, who declared that to all
purposes the men- on the trip are pro
fessional. "We are violating none of the ethics
or goir on this tour, says Evans, "and
are surprised to learn that an amateur
golfer cannot accept the hospitality of
anotner golfer.
