mittee. These cover a wide range of
competitions, with the official opening J

Cocktail Cap Contests New.
The cocktail cup competition is new
to Oregon golf. This competition will
be held on the first Sunday in each
month whenever possible, match play
against bogey with handicaps. The
player defeating bogey by the widest
margin each month 'will be given a
silver cocktail cup. This form of com
petition has proved very popular at the
Los Angeles Country Club, and, al
though cocktail cups and other ac-
couterments of olden-day Oregon wet-1
teries are supposed to be passed, the
committee believes the innovation will
6tlr up a great deal of Interest at the
Trophies have been offered by Frank
JTeitkemper, Jaeger Bros., President
Frank Raley, Vice-President John G.
Clemson, W. C. Bristol. C. C. Gross and
H. L. Keats. W. C. Bristol has donated
b. beautiful trophy for the men's ama
teur championship of the club to be
kept at the clubhouse until it has been
won five times by one player. It will
then become his personal property.
Rudolph Wilhelm. J. R. Straight and
George B. McGill, first three champions,
will each be given one win so as to
make the record complete from the
organization of the club.
Competition Lasts 4 Month.
The Keats competition against
bogey will run four months and the
four winners will then meet in match
play for permanent ownership of the
trophy. No winner will be permitted
to compete again for the trophy until
the finals, so that four different play
ers will have their names engraved
on the cup.

local Turn Verein ranks among the
loremost or tne country.
The 13th number on the "blll-of-fam"

Twenty-four members of the third

witness. There will be 15 numbers on
the big programme, and the event
promises to be one of the most success
ful ever run off by the professor, and

At the Nineteenth Hole
Willie Leith, the long-driving pro
fessional at the Butte Country Club,
has resigned his position. In a letter
to a friend. J. M. Forde, of Portland,
intimates that Frank Noble, formerly
at Lake Placer and Siwanoy golf clubs,
has been offered the place.
One ticklish point that no one in
particular seems to bother about is the
fact that "Walter J. Travis, supposedly
under the ban or about to be placed
there as a golf architect, is playing in
the amateur golf tournaments at Palm
Beach, Florida. The Palm Beach Golf
Club Is not a member of the United
States Golf Association, and therefore
is not affected by any rulings of that
body. Whether this solves the diffi
culty or not, it is sure that the ruling
organization will not look with favor
on any competition which is called an
"amateur tournament" in which those
who have been declared professionals
are allowed to play.
The work of enriching the greens at
the Portland Golf Club is nearly done,
and the players will be back on the
grass greens again in the immediate
future. For the past month they have
been using temporary greens.
Miss Alexa. W. Stirling, of Atlanta,
women's National golf champion, has
forsaken the mashle for the pen, at
least temporarily, and has written a
comprehensive article on golf links for
women in the January number of Golf
Illustrated, edited by Max Behr, for
mer New Jersey state champion. In
this article Miss Stirling takes issue
with those who think that the way
to prepare any full-sized links for a
woman's tournament is to move the
disks up to the short tee and call it
a day's work. She indorses the action
of the Women's Western Golf Asso
ciation ifl adopting a new set of par
figures for their own standard of play.
Getting down to the details of course
construction. Miss Stirling points out
that every good golf course in the
country Is laid out to demand that
each shot be a good one by a man!
In no case does the course architect
stop and say to himself, as he sets the
distance or plans a bunker. "This will
make a beautiful midiron shot for a
woman." The only place on the links
where men and women meet on an
equal footing is the putting green.

lost many shots by kisses.
Both men made some brilliant shots,

ers surrounding the mat room were
crowded by faculty and students, and
some clever wrestling was seen. Two
of the matches went for draws and will
be settled Monday night. Otherwise
the varsity team was chosen, and the
boys will be sent through their final
preparation the first of next week.
Oregon has but one letter man, El-
wynn Rutherford, captain, but the boys
who have made the team are repre
sentative of the best and have put
hopes into the coach that they win

C. H. Davis, Jr., president of the Pa
cific Northwest Golf Association, re
turned last week from a business trip
to Tacoma. Seattle. Vancouver and
Victoria with the tidings that th
keen interest everywhere on tap pres
ages the greatest tournament in the
history of Northwest golf at the
Waverley Country Club links June
Through the efforts of Mr. Davis
the 1917 tournament of the Pacific
Northwest Association was awarded to
Portland at the 'Spokane meet last
While Mr. Davis trip last week
primarily was of a business nature he
found time to mingle amongst the
disciples of the Royal and Ancient
Scotch pastime for a little missionary
Big Crowd Expected.
We are going to have a whopper of
a crowd of golfers In Portland on that
week." said President Davis yester
day. "I think there is no doubt that
the entry list will be the largest in
the history of the Pacific Northwest
championships. Spokane set a new
record last year and we are out to
eclipse Spokane's high mark.
"Spokane, Seattle. Tacoma. Van
couver, Victoria. Everett these and a
dozen other cities of this district will
send their best men and I understand
Russell Smith Is drumming up a few
entries In California."
As though the presidency of the Pa
cific Northwest Golf Association were
not enough responsibility. President
Davis also is chairman of the greens
committee at the Waverley Country
and a member of the greens committee
at the Portland Golf Club.
Coarse to Be In Shape.
This in itself is a guarantee that the
Waverley course will be in tip-top
shape for the tournament. Already the
landscape artists have completed an
almost entirely new set or tees at
Waverlev and the work on the re-
bunkering of the course is oeing
Th htinkerlnir on the tenth hole is
being thoroughly overhauled. One of
the bunkers on the left in rroni or. tne
erreen is to be . filled and the right
hand bunker transformed into a pit. A
new pit also is to be anchored close
to the green and guarding the left
hand corner. The present pit hole high
along the right side of the green is
also to be enlarged. "
Some of the bunkers installed last
year on the lower nine were found a
little to obstinate and some 'renova
tions are to be made. It was found
almost impossible to dig the ball out
of some lies against the face of on
or two of the bunker walls and these
are now being concaved so as to
Tonrnfy Finns Made.
When the work under comtempla
tlon by Chairman Davis and his chief
lieutenant. A. C. u. Berry, is completed
the visitors will hardly know the old

BOB SIMPSON Is one of those fellows
who happen but rarely except In
A trifle more than a year ago he was
an "unknown" in the world of amateur
athletics. Today he ranks as a marvel,
a record holder who has not yet reached
the zenith of his wonderful skill on
traciv and field.
Simpson came from out of the West
a year ago last Spring to represent the
University of Missouri In the big in
tercollegiate meet in Philadelphia. Tall,
rawboned. he didn't attract much at
tention when he ambled to the starting
line for the 120-yard high hurdles. He
wasn't conceded a "look-in" against all
the crack entries. The starting gun
was fired and almost before its echo
died away the world of amateur sports
came to realize that a new star was
shining In the athletic sky. Like a
greyhound, Simpson shot away from the
mark, took every hurdle beautifully
and broke the tape 15 3-5 seconds after
the race began.
I' rom that hour on. Simpson has been
performing heroic feats on the track.
He later made the 120 in world's record
time of 14 3-5. and those who have
watched him closely predict he will
reduce the time to 11 1-5 before another
year rolls around.
"Simpson Is one of the most amaz
ing athletes I have ever seen." declares
C. I Brewer, director of athletics at
the Missouri Institution. "So far he
has specialized In high hurdles. He has
only toyed In the other branches of
track and field work, yet In each he
has come close to smashing records.
He does the century in 10 flat and the
quarter In 50. He has cleared 23 feet
6 inches in ihebroad jump without"
exerting himself; 5 feet 10 inches In
the high jump: throws the discus 130
feet, and lias hurled the 16-pound shot
