Players in United States Too
Prone to Lose Temper .
When Luck Is Bad.
DEFECTS BEING CORRECTED

England Many Arc Taking Up
Game and General Trend Is to
Take Creaks as Tliey Come.
Tt Is a pretty well conceded fact that
vp to date at least British golf has
had a lap or two to spare above Amer
ican golf. There are three reasons for
First, Great Britain has been plug
ging away at the gams about 300
years; the United States about 30 years.
Second, as an average, British courses
have been far better training camps
for the development of finer golf; they
have been much harder, have been far
better trapped and have called for a
greater variety in play.
Third, upon the general average
egain the more stolid British tempera
ment is better suited for golf than the
quick-fire, impatient American tem
Americans are gradually overcoming
the first two defects. English golf is
being played in the United States of
America to bring on development. And
with such courses as the National, Pine
Valley, Lido and others, golfers in this
widespread land will soon be getting
all the tests that a golf system can
It is only a matter of a few years
now before America will be replete
with courses calling for the hardest
tests that exist, so this defect will soon
As for the third deficit or defect, this
Is something else again. There isn't
the slightest doubt but that many of
our best golfers have weakened their
play by an amazing impatience with
the arrival of any bad luck, while a
poor approach or a missed short putt
will drive them into a frenzy.
Many JlewHll Hard Lack.
In these United States of America
there are too many golfers who fly
apart before bad luck or a poor shot.
They never seem to figure that they
are due to have a certain number of
bad lies in the course of a round and
that they are also due to miss a cer
tain number of , shots, especially a num
ber of putts.
Through the last season alone there
can be recalled any number of cases
where one or two bad breaks or one
or two poor "shots completely wrecked
the game of certain first-class players,
because, through lack of proper pa
tience, they allowed these slips of fate
or fortune to get upon their nerves.
Too many of these take only good
luck and perfect golf for granted.
They make n advance no allowance for
mistakes, bad kicks, cuppy lies or other
Take a certain incident at Merlon.
One of the leading contestants drew a
bad start in one of his matches. He
immediately lost his temper and with
it his poise. His game grew care
less and went to wrack. By the
sixth hole he was five down and ap
parently was a badly beaten man.
It so happened Just at this moment
an older friend called him aside and
delivered a burning address upon the
matter. "You ought to be ashamed
of yourself," was the friend's parting
shot. "Either play the game or quit
it for good."
InMtant Change Noted.
The change in the player's method

at once, got a new grip on himself and
at the 18th hole from being 5 down he
had come to being 1 up, which is no
small difference, and the entire change
came from the shift in the player's
mental attitude after he had been set
Tight by some pretty sharp but exceed
ingly sound advice.
Three golfers have been used before
as illustrations or examples along other
lines, but they also fit in here. The
men referred to are Ouimet, Travers
Much has been written about their
fine temperament for play. They un
doubtedly have the so-called "golf
temperament" to a high degree, yet
they are temperamentally unlike in
most other ways.
What, then, is the "golf tempera
ment" they possess? In the main it is
this: They take the game as it comes,
accepting the breaks and shifts of luck
without allowing themselves to be up
set. Nobody has ever seen Frances
Ouimet offer any complaint over a bad
lie or lose his poise for a moment be
cause of some poor shot or some un
lucky turn. No one could tell from
his manner that he was not having
the best of luck.
Travprn Never Annoyed.
How many recall Jerry Travers at
Kaltusrol, when he won the open in
At least three shots that started
well kicked off into bunkers. Tet
when Jerry came up to his ball his ex
pression shewed no annoyance or im
patience. Having got into trouble, his
ole thought was the best way out,
not a waste in vain regrets over what
might have been.
How does this help? The answer is
eimple enough. By refusing to become
overly impatient or upset these three
have been able to retain their complete
concentration, to fix their undivided
and unbroken attention upon the main
shot in golf which is the next shot
you have to play. If Oimet had b
come impatient or annoyed because he
hooked a shot out of bounds aginst
Vardon and Ray, or Travers had both
ered his soul because he found trouble
here and there, neither would have
been open champion.
There are grips and stances and
swings that help in golf. But none of
these help any more than the "capacity
for infinite patience" and the ability
to take the game as it comes; the
ability to fix concentration on the shot
ahead, forgetting past mistakes or past
trouble in the determination to get
there on the next one.
If the average golfer gave as much
attention to this latter feature as he
does to correcting physical faults in
swing or stance or grip his game
would never be possible over the other

MAJORS IGNORE COMMISSION
FOR BALL TRIP TO HONOLULU
Several of Coast League Teams Have Not Yet Decided on Training Camps.
Harry B. Smith Explains Salary Limit Question and Liklihood of Secrecy.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Nov. 11.
(Special.) Major league ballplay
ers are taking a chance of antago
nizing the National commission these
days by engaging to make the trip to
Honolulu with Charlie Swain's All
Stars. At least that is the case with
five of them Harold Janvrin, of th
Boston Red Sox; Louis Guisto, of Cleve
land; Rowdy Elliott, of the Chicago
Cubs; Sammy Bohne. of the St. Louis
club, and George Kelly, of the New
The tourists started for Honolulu last
Tuesday afternoon and each one of the
big quintet received a telegram from
his club that read thusly:
"You must secure permission from
the National commission. Personally
your club has no objection to your
making, the trip."
Commission Is Ignored.
And then the five, without any get
together conference, each decided for
himself that he would beard the Na
tional commission in its den and suffer
the consequences, if there are any.
The fact that the club owners do
not object to a bit of Winter ball is
strongly in favor of the players and
the boys believe, if it comes down to a
pinch, that they can show a clear case.
Al Sothoron and Nixon. of the
Beavers, were to have been members cf
the party, but rather mussed up the
programme by leaving suddenly for the
East, and that too, without any notifica
tion to the promoters. At best it was
a shabby trick to play on Swain, who
has had plenty of troubles on his
shoulders without having to chase a
couple of erratic ballplayers.
New Men Signed In Time.
Fortunately Louis Guisto brought
the word to Swain before there was
actual damage done and new men were
signed to take their places. The team
as it stands for the nine games on
the island is as follows:
Pitchers Wynn Noyes, Chief John
son and Dutch Reuther.
Catchers Rowdy Elliott and Johnny
First base Louis Guisto.
Second base Harold Janvrin.
Shortstop Bill Leard.
Third base Sammy Bohne.
Outfielders Bill Kenworthy, Dutch
Retither and George Kelly.-
Reuther will be used in the double
capacity. He can pitch occasionally
but for the most part he will be an
outfielder. Swain went along, of course,
in charge of the team and the tourists
will be absent for five weeks.
Other Similar To urn Made.
Away back a number of years A. O.
Spalding made a trip around the world
with a flock of baseball athletes. Mike
Fisher, well known to Coast League
fans, followed suit on two different
occasions, while a little less than two
years ago McGraw and Comiskey
headed two great major league clubs
on the same sort of trip.
There have been several college teams,
to say nothing of the O. C. boys from
the winged "O" institution, to make the
trip, so Honolulu fans are well ac
quainted with baseball talent from this
Swain has taken with him a well
balanced club and his boys ought to
furnish some good baseball. Most of
the players' have nothing to occupy
their attention and for that reason the
diversion will be the best thing in the
world for, them.
Rest Advised In Off Season.
Personally the writer believes ihat
ballplayers should rest in the off sea
son, but a short Jaunt of five weeks is
not going to do any damage.
When the California delegation net
sail last Thursday for New Orleans and
the meeting of the minor leaguers,
there was no representation from the
San Francisco club. Henry Berry de
clared he was altogether too busy with
the details of tearing down Recreation
Park stands to make the trip, while
Manager Harry S. Wolverton explained
that as he had no trades to consummate,

that it will be three months of delight

little of baseball mixed in as possible.
Negotiations to Be Made.
However. Wolverton has left orders
for a telephone to be hooked on and
declares that he will do whatever

Prexy Baum will represent the Coast
League, but there went with him J.
Cal Ewing, president of the Oakland
leam. ana Manager Dei Howard. Cal
Ewing is about the best politician ever
developed in minor league circles and
can be depended upon to watch affairs
from the standpoint of his own sec
tion. Howard admits that he has a lot of
deals under way and he wants to be
in New Orleans to attend to them.
First of all. he wants to make a com
bination, if possible, with the Brook
lyn club, so as to get the cast-offs of
the Trolley Dodgers.
Then he wants to strengthen his
team in certain places and thinks the
best possible manner is by being on
the ground in person
Berry to Start Xm, Park Soon.
The latest word from Hen Berry is
to. the effect that work on the new
park will start about December 1.
The grass on the infield has been
taken up and stored away as a guar
antee of his good intentions. This
coming Sunday there will be a bene
fit game of ball arranged by the Na
tive Sons, after which the padlocks
will be put on the gates until such
time as the wreckers are ready for
Leases on some of the Fifteenth
street property that will be used in
enlarging the diamond and increasing
the distance from the plate to right
field, will not be up until December 1.
Then, so says Hen. work will start
with a rush.
It Is figured that given any amount
of fair weather the stands can be re
built within two months and In readi
ness for exhibition games, providing
the Coasters decide to let an outside
team train here this coming Spring.
Oaks May Train at Bom Sprinn.
Oakland evidently thinks well of
uoyes springs as a training camp.
Secretary Jack Cook and Del Howard
made a trip to the Sonoma County re
sort this last week and returned with
a signed contract by which the Oaks
will be located at Boyes for the next
"The grounds suit us and the camp
is a perfect one for a ball club." said
Cook. "Likewise advantageous terms
were offered and that determined us
to tie up with Dr. Parramore for the
next five years. We, will know where
we stand and so will Parramore and
San Francisco is still shy a training
camp, so iar as any uennlte action is
concerned. Berry says he likes San
Jose, but that he isn't sure he can get
a diamond. When San Jose merchants
gave a rodeo last Summer they tore
up the baseball diamond and converted
it into a field for equestrian sports.
Diamond Needed for Retnrn.
Now, if the Seals are to return, to
the Garden City, it will take some
work as well as some money, to land
them a diamond.
Much depends, of course, upon the
attitude or the .oasters with reference
to the coming of a major league club.
If they decide to allow Spring exhibi
tion games, it will mean that the San
Francisco club, for instance, will be
busy in this city Saturdays and Sun
days during the Spring month of work.
In that case, it will not make so much
difference where the club is sent to
get into shape. ,
It looks very much as if there will
be a move to rescind the Coast ruling
that calls for three weeks of training-
Berry, for one, believes each club
ought to be allowed to settle that
problem for itself. For example, there
are some pitchers who require more
seasoning than others.
Whether there will be a lifting of
tne lid where tne salary limit is con
cerned, no one so far has predicted. 1
think the league directors are con
vinced that it was a mistake to make
public the cutting down of the salary
limit and if they do anything of the
sort this Fall at the Salt Lake gather

Portland Only Fails to Make
Hit Every Inning In 1 Game.
It was not thel fault of the Portland
club that Los Angeles won the pennant
In the 1916 Coast League season. To
be sure. Portland and Los Angeles had
more postponed games than any other
two clubs, but Portland was the only
club to break -even with the Angels for
the season. Portland won more games
from the Angels and lost fewer games
to the Angels than did any other club,
winning 18 and losing 18.
Sothoron was responsible for the
pitching end of seven of Portland's 18
victories over the Angels, while Noyes
was charged with the defeat in six of
the 18 games that Portland lost to Los
Angeles. Los Angeles won two and
lost seven games against Sothoron:
won six and lost only one against
Noyes. The Angels won four and lost
three against Houck and won two and
lost three against Kelly.
Hagerman and Higginbotham were
the only Portland pitchers not to meet
a defeat at the hands of the Angels,
Hagerman winning two and Higgin
botham winning one. Loudermilk won
one and lost two games against the
Angels, while Harstad and Reuther
each won none and lost one.
Oakland was Los Angeles' chief vic
tim in games won for the pennant, al
though in percentage of games won
and lost Salt Lake City was the easiest
foe of the Angels. Los Angeles won
26 games from Oakland and 25 each
from Salt Lake, San Francisco and Ver
non. Los Angeles lost 12 games to
Salt Lake, 16 each to Oakland and Ver
non and 17 to San Francisco.
Only six Coast League pitchers won
more than three games from the 1916
champion Angels, and of these three
were San Francisco hurlers. Sothoron.
of Portland, finished the season with
more victories against Los Angeles
than any other pitcher, winning seven
games. Baum. of San Francisco, was
next in line, with five wins from the
champions. Crandall, while with Oak
Land. Sothoron won seven and lost two
games against the Angels; Crandall
won four and lost none; Prough won
four and lost four.
Among the Seal regular pitchers.
Couch was the only one who won more
than he- lost against the Angels, win
ning four and losing one. Corbett won
one and lost none. Baum won five
and lost six and Steen won four and
lost six to the champions. Oldham won
two and lost four games to the An
gels: Brown won one and lost five:
Erickson was the only Seal pitcher
who did not win a game from the An
gels, losing three times.
Sixteen times during the 1916 Coast
League season did a club register at
least one safe hit to an inning. San
Francisco turned the trick seven times,
with Oakland next In line, with four
games. Vernon was credited with a hit
in every inning in three games, and
Salt Lake and Los Angeles each added
one game to the record. Portland was
the only club that did not play at least
one game with a hit in every Inning.
Four times each Vernon and Salt
Lake were the victims when opposing
clubs hit safely in every inning. Oak
land's opponents turned the trick three
times; Los Angeles and Portland pitch
ers were bumped safely every inning
in two games each, and San Francisco,
the team that hit safely in every in
ning more times than any other club,
allowed opponents to' turn the trick
Only four out of the 16 times that a
club hit safely in every inning did that
accomplishment fail to bring victory,
and one of those times was the only
occasion of the season when an oppos
ing club hit safely in every inning
against the Seals. San Francisco won,
7 to 6. on June 7, despite the fact that
Vernon piled up a total of 16 hits, with
at least one in every inning. Oakland
hit safely in every inning against Salt
Lake on May 14 and lost. 4 to 2. and
also against Vernon on July 30 and lost,
8 to 5. San Francisco hit safely
against Salt Lake in every inning on
April 29 and lost. 9 to 6.

Seal came to Wolverton from the Great
Falls club, of the Northwestern League,
where he won 19 games and lost 14.
He Is credited with three wins and
one loss with the Seals, but he started
in some other games which he failed
to finish. Most of these contests were
won by San Francisco, so Rudy's aver
age looks good. He says he developed
a sore elbow on his throwing arm after
leaving Portland. Kallio goes back to
San Francisco next Spring.
According to the Portland youth,
Henry Berry started fixing up his San
Francisco park shortly before he start

Walter Travis, the grand old man of
golf, tells an amusing story of a golf
match at Palm Beuch. There the cad
dies are colored and they go bare
footed and also bet among themselves
on the mutch. Mr. Travis In this par
ticular instance noticed that his op
ponent was getting much louper drives
than seemed natural and he wondered
why. About the seventh hole he dis
covered the reason. His opponent's cad
die would walk along looking for the
ball and when he came to it he would
step on it and carry it between his
toes so naturally that the act was hard
to see. The caddie frankly admitted

An interesting interclub match was
played last week between employes of
the Waverley Country Club and the
Portland Golf Club. Boyd Bustard,
formerly a Waverley caddy and now
assistant to Harry L. Pratt at the Port
land club, registered a 76 over the
Portland course in competition with
Anton Fredin and Todd, of Waverley.
Todd came hack at him later in the
week at Waverley by hanging up a
score of 80. Todd came back over the
lower nine in a par 36 strokes, after
a bad start on the upper.
Knergetic beavers raised a dam
across the creek running through the
