California's premier club.
Walter Hagen is the new open cham
pion of the United States, having nosed
out our friend Mike Brady in playing
off the tie recently. This is the second
time that Mike has lost the blue rib
bon after a tie. In 1911 he was tied
with J. J. McDermott and George O.
Simpson at Wheaton with a total of J07
and McDermott won the play-off. In
the 23 years of contest this is the
seventh time that it has been neces
sary to play off ties.
Walter Hagen has recaptured the
title for the professionals after a five
years' interval. Hagen won in 1914.
Jerry Travers took the hors to the
amateurs in 1915, and "Cck" Evans
was also the amateur conqueror in
1916, the war preventing any contest
in 1917 or last year. Hagen is well
known here. While in San Francisco
four years ago he left a mark at ingle-
side which will probably never be ex
tinguished. He made the first nine
holes exactly as they are still played
by the California -Golf club in the as
tounding score of 30, seven strokes
under par. He was the winner of the
P. P. L E. open championship.

to send Miss Thelma Payne, the wom

Payne declined to make the trip.
Both Mrs. Meyers and Miss Hicks are
well-known on the Pacifio ooast, and
should be able to hold their own with
the best divers that California can produce.

at Multnomah club Is now negotiating
with President W. H. Davies of the
Victoria Island Athletic club for the
entry of the Multnomah club mermen
Jack Cody, swimming and diving in
structor at Multnomah, will pick the
team to make the Victoria trip provided
the prospects turn out and train for the
event. If they prove to be lax in their
conditioning other swimmers will be
named to take their place.
Cody names the following aquatic
stars for the Canadian invaslor.:
Myron Wilsey, eprints and distance;
H. W. Buckland, backstroke events:
Albert Enegrene, breastroke and
sprints; "Brownie" Webster, back
stroke, breastroke and plunge for dis-
stance; O. J. Hosford, distance; Collie
heeler, middle distance and distance;
Happy" Kuehn, fancy and high div
ing; Miss Thelma Payne, fancy and
high diving, and Mrs. Constance Mey
ers, fancy and high diving. Cody will
accompany the team.
The event which is attracting the
most interest at this year's P. N. A.
outdoor meet at Victoria Is the struggle
for the water polo championship of the
northwest. Multnomah club will not
be found lacking in that department
with the following composing the sev
en-man team: O. J. Hosford, Albert
Enegrene and Collie Wheeler, guards:
Louis Kuehn, Myron Wilsey, and
Brownie" Webster, forwards, and H.
W. Buckland, goal. These men make
up one of the best water polo teams
on the Pacific coast and should give a
good account of themselves on July 19.
Arrangements were completed yester
day for Miss Thelma Payne, women's
National Amateur Athletic union fan
cy diving champion and holder of nu
merous other women's indoor and out
door diving titles, and Louis "Happy"
Kuehn, northwest and Oregon fancy
diving champion, to give exhibitions of
their skill at the regatta to be held on
Lake Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, July 4.
Windemuth's bathing' resort on the
Willamette river has been opened for
the summer season by Manager Lou
Woodward and is again proving one 'of
the most popular spots On the river.
The new dancing pavilion opened by
Woodward this season has made a hit
with those who like to dance as well as
swim and adds greatly to the popular
ity of Windemuth's baths.
With the world war at an end. tho
classic swim across the English chan
nel is again drawing attention, as evi
denced by the cabled news that William
Burgess and Jabez Wolffe, the well
known British exponents of aquatic en
durance, wil undertake the gruelling
trip once more this summer.
Quite unusual interest attaches It
self to the proposed doubles trial, be
cause the two men are swimmers of a
totally different type. Burgess is a
slow plodder of the old school. He suc
ceeded in covering the 20 miles be
tween France and England In 22 hours
and 35 minutes and he claims that no
devotee of the modern strokes can hope
to make the crossing. Wolffe, on the
other hand, believes in up-to-date meth
ods, is much faster than Burgess, and
In two or three instances has 'come
close to spanning the channel under 16 .
hours, so he maintains that the feat
can be accomplished with a present-day
stroke in from 12 to 13 hours. The lat
ter opinion is shared by the leading
American distance swimmers, and the
outcome of the attempts will be await
ed with keen Interest in this country.
