To the pioneers of every sport must
come feelings of satisfaction with the
realization of the dreams and hopes of
The history of trapshooting records
no greater step forward than the rec
ognition of women . trapshooters by
the Interstate Association for the En
couragement of Trapshooting. The In
terstate Association is the governing
body of trapshooting. It has made ar
rangements for an event for women to
take place during the 18th running of
the grand American trapshooting
tournament, which takes place at the
beautiful South Shore Country Club,
Chicago, 111., during the week of Au
- A few years ago the women trap
shooters who could be found regularly
et the traps could be counted on the
fingers of your hands. While we do
rot recall. all of these women pioneers,
the names of Mrs. S. S. Johnson and
Mrs. Shattuck (Huntress), both of Min
neapolis, Minn.; Mrs. D. H. Day, of Du
luth, Minn.; Mrs. Adolph Toppervein. of
San Antonio, Tex.; and Annie Oakley
are still fresh In our mind. Unques
tionably hundreds, and maybe thou
sands, of other women enthusiasts vis
ited the traps from time to time; other
wise the rapid influx of the past three
years would not have been possible.
The first organized effort to estab
lish women on a solid foundation in
the trapshooting game came with the
formation of the Nemours Trapshooting
Club In July. 1913, in Wilmington, Del.
The nation-wide Interest resulting
from the news Items telling about this
club, appearing In papers all over the
country, brought to the traps hundreds
of heretofore timid women, who had
every desire to participate in this great
eport, and who possessed every qualifi
cation fqr sue-.eeding at It.
During 1914. 1915 and 1916 every
day brought forth fresh evidence of the
growing popularity of trapshooting
among women. Clubs composed en
tirely of the fair sex were organized;
inter-city matches between women's
clubs were staged, and women partici
pated in a large percentage of the club
shoots and tournaments held. In the
beginners' shoot alone more than 1500
women participated, and it is estimated
conservatively that fully 2000 new
women shooters took up the game last
Pinehurst, N. C, the home of the
Pinehurst Midwinter trapshooting tour
nament, and a famous Winter resort,
two years ago secured Annie Oakley to
instruct women in the use of firearms,
and since her engagement Miss Oakley
has given instruction to more than
2000. During the Summer Miss Oak
ley is at New Castle. N. H., and in
structs several hundred women during
the heated term. Most of the fashion
able women's clubs of the country
have taken to the sport and last sea
son Belle G. Earle opened a school at
Lakewood, N. J., and also gave instruc
tion in the art of shooting to women
members of the clubs of Long Island
and in New Jersey.
Small wonder, then, that the wise
and far-seeing management of the In
terstate Association decided to provide
for the women trapshooters when ar
ranging for the grand American handi
cap. If the advance expressions from
women trapshooters can be regarded
as an indication of the attendance of
the fair sex at the blue ribbon sporting
event of the world, then its success in
large measure is assured.

T. Morris Dunne, of the Multnomah

from Manager Coffman, of Idora Park,
that they would be willing to share ex

Mrs Meyer is training dally for tne

Sacramento and nearby towns will send
full entries to the meet at Idora Park.
Santa Cruz and several of the beach
towns in Southern California have
promised to send teams.
Alleen Allen, the Los Angeles diving
nymph, who beat "Connie" Meyer last
year, will meet her again in competition
and sparks are sure to fly when they
do their best to retain their supremacy.
Mrs. Meyer la the logical candidate
to be sent south and she Is doing her
best to uphold the honors of the North

diver south, but as yet nothing defi
nite has been settled.
Mrs. Meyer has been doing her div

rapidly becoming able, however, to
judge the distance and her efforts will
soon be rewarded.

BT GEORGE ROBBINS.
Several reasons exist why the Chi

ring serious accidents, in this eventful
One la Chicle Gandil. Another Is
Charley Risberg. Still another is Buck
Weaver. Eddie Cicotte and Red Faber
are important reasons. The Sox didn't
have Risberg and Gandil last year,
when they were two games shy of a
flag. They had Eddie Collins and Joe
Jackson, so these names will be dropped
in tnis present discussion.
Ginntn la Winning A suet.
Gameness is a winning asset of any
player with lots of baseball talent. The
new first Backer and the new shortstop
of the Sox seem to be well supplied with
tnis quality, (jandil was just the man
needed for the first base post. Chick
never shirks or loafs on a hard chance
and doesn't duck when danger lurks in
Then there's Risberg, ever alert and
prepared for eventualities one of the
gamest fellows who ever came down
the baseball pike.
No more convincing argument for
Rlsberg's gameness need be given than
his recent operation for blood poison-
When the White Sox returned from
their last Eastern trip. Trainer Buck- I
ner was worried about Risber's injured
leg and reported his fears to Dr. James
H. Blair, the club physician.
Serious Operation Survived.
Risberg undoubtedly owes a deep debt
of gratitude to Blair. He probably owes
his life to him to whom President Co
miskey intrusts his athletes when suf
fering from ailments out of Buck's line.
"1 11 have to cut, said Blair after in
specting Rlsberg's le.
You can t cut any too soon to suit
me. ' replied the rookie shortstop.
Dr. Blair did cut and he cut to the
bone. It was one of the worst cases of
blood poisoning reported to the club
physician of the Sox .n his career with
the team. Despite this, Risberg, as the
fans will recall, was out only two days.
Risberg Shows Great Nerve.
"For sheer gameness I have never
seen anything surpassing the grit and
nerve shown by Risberg." admitted Dr.
Blair. "The wound had infected the
whole limb. It was necessary to drain
it often, and the player submitted to
great pain. This was a case that wor
ried me greatly, yet Risberg's gameness
had much to do with his epe-dy re
covery." The Sox rookie came right back into
the game and, despite his handicap.

leg, badly infected and cut to the bone,
he appeared at short and helped the Sox
come back into a winning stride.
A well-known American League
player on a rival club of the White Sox
recently had a case of blood poisoning.
His condition was not neatly as serious
as that of Risberg, but he was in a hos
pital for nearly two weeks.
Illsberg to Help Win Flafr.
That is the reason why Risberg
should help boost the Sox to a pen

games from a, flag with a weak fielding
first baseman and with unsettled con

plugged, shouldn't they come through
Risberg never knows when he's down.
This rookie never seems to be cog
nizant of defeat. He's a stranger to
reverses. He may fumble away a game,
but he always comes back strong and
he never shirks a hard chance.
Since May 16 Risberg has boosted his
batting average 110 points. On that
day he was hitting .114 in 31 games.
According to the latest official aver
