Told on the Links
a TTENDING a big golf tournament,
XTL especially in. its early stages, is
about as satisfactory as trying to see
everything at a three-ring circus. It is
not surprising, therefore, that specta
tors f reauently come away far from sat
isfled with what they have seen. With
a wealth of good things to see. it is
next to impossible to make a selection
of what is to follow. Of course, when
the final round is reached the strain
on the spectator's capacity .for selec
tion is relieved, but the final occupies
only one day out of several.
It accordingly happen that during
the early stages of such tournaments
those who are anxious not to miss any
thing keep wandering over the course
from one match to another, making in
quiries to which answers are almost
"It is usually my fate to select the
-wrong match to follow." said a man
whose experience has been a sad one

some people have. I have never seen
any one get a hole in one in the course

"I was once present at a tournament
in which the last players had to make
their strokes by lantern light, but
had left long before this interesting

play I frequently find it necessary to
resign myself to hearing others re

the 18th, or how Smith took five putts

"These incidents are made all the
more attractive when the witness,
learning that I have not seen them,
expatiates on their remarkable char

games and play golf or tennis about
the same as usual. We still look for
our exercise and recreation, but the old
interest isn't the same. Back of us.
around us and beyond us there are too
many heavy shadows from far greater
events. The times are too tense for
one to play with any buoyancy of
heart or lightness of soul.
To explain this, on two occasions
this last week, we saw two happenings
beyopd all parallel:
1. A fanatic without change of ex
pression while the winning tally was
being deposited by the horn's club.
2. A golfer miss an 18-inch putt
without blinking. Just as if nothing of
any Importance had occurred.

LEFT BY HAP HOGAN
High Tribute Paid to Late Venice Manager by Cal Ewing Minor Inci
dents Throw Light on Tiger Leader's Character.
N POINT of service, the late Wallace
Louis Bray (Hap Hogan) was the
oldest player in the Pacific Coast
When his name was first changed to
Hogan, Bray was known as Wollie
Hogan. but this was soon changed to
"Happy" Hogan on account of his tac
tics on the held.
The widow of the late Venice leader
was Miss Laura Curtis, of Sacramento,
until her marriage to Bray in 1904.
Hogan's parents are Mr. and. Mrs.
Francis Bray, who for many years have
been prominent In the affairs of Santa
Clara Valley and. active in church work
in San Jose.
He leaves three brothers and two
sisters. One of these, Mrs. J. T. Atkin
son, resides in San Jose, while the
other is living at the Bray ranch. The
brothers are Hal Bray, who is engaged
in the real estate business in San Jose,
and Ernest and George.
No man can ever take the place of
Hap Hegan In baseball on the Pacific
Coast. He was the greatest character
in the Pacific Coast League and one of
the rel great men in organized base
ball." This was the professional trib
ute paid to the memory of the late
Hap Hogan by J. Carl Ewing.
One lovable trait of Hip's was the
generosity with which he admitted his
mistakes. Often he would come Dack
to the bench and say with an air of
disgust, "Well, ! pulled a bone-head
play." He eeldom had to say this, how
ever, as Hap was one of the shrewdest
and keenest baseball tacticians in the
Happy Hogan died without having
fulfilled the ambition of his life, which
was to win a Coast League pennant.
He had come near the flag two or three
times. This year he felt sure that he
would finish at the head of the league.
Hap had a unique way of testing
young pitchers. He said he could ai

East Siders Hope to Put End
to League Leaders' Win
ning Streak Today.
Manager Randall to Present Two
More New Faces In His lineup,
Maroon Director Waiving
' 15-Day Limit Rale.
Determined to stop Piedmont's win
ning streak, and with a world of con
fidence in the ability of their star
slabster, "Red" Lund, to turn the trick,
the East Side Redmen will battle hard
this afternoon in an effort to defeat
the City League leaders. The game
will be played at the Piedmont Park,
with Umpire Ed Rankin officiating.
Sellwood's Merchants and the West Side
Monarchs will battle at Sellwood, with
Alex Cheynne handling the indicator.
Both games will start at 2:30 o'clock.
Manager Randall, of the Redmen. will
present two more new faces in his line
up Bill Beard and "Frisco" Edwards,
both McMinnvllle stars. Although both
have not been signed for 15 days, which
is a City League rule, the Piedmont
management has consented to their
"Any team in the league can use
anybody that they can secure to play
against my club," said the Maroon
manager yesterday. "My club has a
good lead and we will take a chance.
At the Sellwood Park, Wayne F.
Lewis will make his Initial bow as a
manager of a City League club and,
with the bolstering that has already
been done, bids fair to make the Mon
archs hustle to win. Lewis, who has
been pilot of the Celro-Kola team, will
take four members of that club to Sell-
wood with him, and will retain six of
the present Merchants'. In addition to
these players, he has signed Pitcher
Woolsey, who pitched The Dalles, Or.
team to ten straight victories this sea
Woolsey and "Lefty" Heiman, who
has been pitching for the Merchants,
will constitute the pitching staff.
Schultz, a former Kola, and Johnnie
Newman, who has caught most of Sell
wood's games this season, will be the
"Hank" Akin, Howard Neilsen, Heinle
Wilson, Fred Cohen and "Mud" Ingles
will all be carried as infielders until
Lewis can determine Just who will have
Akin, the Beaverton boy who has
been playing first base for the Mer-
when it hits my glove," Hap said. "This
feeling of heaviness is caused by the
twist of the ball. A good catcher, on
the other hand, ought to throw a ball
that feels lig-ht when you catch it. If
a boy tells me ho is a pitcher, and the
ball feels light, I know It is no use
for him to go on. He hasn't anything."
Hap was the sreatest "groat-getter" In
baseball. Often when in a tight place
in the gome he would go in as a pinch
hitter. What with pointing his bat
like a sharpshooter's musket at the
pitcher, dancing Jigs at the plate and
performing the most amazing antics,
he eeldom failed to make the pitcher
completely lose his head. Even the
most experienced veterans were not
immune. In one of his last games Hap
went in to bat with a man on third.
The pitcher grabbed the bunt that Hap
slammed out and was about to out
off the runner to third, but Hap began
dancing a one-step on the way to first.
and the pitcher got so rattled that he
threw the ball to first base instead and
let the roan on third score.
Hap seldom called down a player
for a physical error, like muffing a
ball. He assumed that a man felt as
badly as possible over that. He always
called attention to boners, however,
but in a peculiar way. At the time he
seldom mentioned the mistake to the
offender. He waited perhaps weeks
until some other player played the
same point correctly. He then showed
the bonehead that he should have done
Hap won one series from the Angels
by kidding the catchers. There were
two of them. They were ' furiously
Jealous of one another. Hap would
get out on the first-base line and re
monstrate with the catcher who w
sitting on the bench. "Don't laugh at
him," he would say. "Gee, he is doing
the best he can." Whereat the catcher
behind the bat would be unable to
keep from turning his head to see If
his deadly rival was really laughing
at him. Realizing that he had let Hap
make a fool of him, the young fellow
would become so rattled that he
wouldn't know whether he was playing
football or baseball.
