GOLFERS NOTABLY WEAK IN
BEING JUDGES OF DISTANCE
Various Methods Supplied by Courses to Give Information Rouse Con
troversy As to Relative Merit and Influence of These Schemes.
NE" of the very frequent weak
nesses noted in many modern
golfers is the inability to judge
distance accurately. Of late year
there has been a tendency to mark
off the courses so one could tell at
most any place his ball happened to
lie what the distance to the hole was
without any judgment on his own
part. So the golf committees have
done various things to aid the player
in this respect. Once in a while the
courses are actually measured and
staked off every 100 yards or so.
Practically every club has the tee
boxes inscribed with the distance and
the par of every hole and score cards
also contained the same information.
There is a wide divergence of opin
ion on this subject among golfers. The
older ones are inclined to view the
ociern tendency of helping the judg

A recent discussion of this ques
tion by Francis Ouimet, once a title
holder, caused quite a flurry in east
ern golf circles and the following
article appeared in the Brooklyn Eagle
on the subject:
Ouimet's advice to those who would
know what best to do when they still
are a good way from the hole and
pondering over the club to use in the
emergency, is in the nature of that

marry don't! Instead of forcing his

the admonition "sink or swim," the

But before passing judgment hear
the following evidence:

Francis. "No one can rely on guess

The pampered golfers of today seem
to have forgotten that courses were
not always tagged, labeled and staked,
with the length of each hold glaring
from each teeing box and printed on
the score card. In those days the war

to rely on their own judgment ex

a test of eye and judgment of dis

"Gabby" Street Recalls Costly Er

"Gabby" Street, ex-major league
catcher, who will manage the Suffolk
team in the Virginia league this year
says the strangest play he ever saw
happened while he was catching for
W ashington in a game at St. Louis.
"St. Louis had us beat, 3 to 2. and
there were two out in the ninth," said
Street. "Washington runners were
on third and second and two strikes
on Dave Altizer, the Washington
"The next strike came over and
Sheridan called It a strike. The ball
whizzed right through Hack Spencer's
mit and bounded up against the
grandstand and then shot off at an
angle, while the chubby Spencer pur
sued it. Both of the Washington run
ners on the bases scored easily.
"But all the time Altizer refused to
leave the plate. He was in a hot ar
gument with Sheridan and insisted
that the ball wasn't over the plate
and was two feet wide. In the mean
time Spencer got the ball. There was
no chance to get either of the runners
at the plate, but he fired to first and
retired Altizer. It made the last out
of the game and Altizer's failure to
run cost us the two runs and lost the
game for Washington. And they
talked about Merkle."

two members of the Portland Gun
club being selected on the ten-man
trapshooting team that will represent
America tn the Olympic games, the
scatter-gun artists of Oregon and
Portland are interested in the selec
tion of the team. The two trapshots
who rate the team ar Frank M. Troeh
and James W. Seavey, Oregon state
The initial plan, announced last
year, was that the ten high men in
the average for 1919 would compose
the team to Invade Belgium. Both
Troeh and Seavey were in the elect
ten. However, with the reorganiza
tion of the American Trapshooting
association, the plan was changed.
First one way and then another was
set upon until the bluerock devotees
were as much in the dark as Noah
was on the good ship Ark.
Several weeks ago the news
trickled over the wires that Jay Clark
of Worcester, Mass., had been named
captain of the team and had selected
the men for the trip. This was em
phatically denied the next day by
Clark after the article had appeared
all over the country. Clark had been
appointed captain all right by the
executive committee of the American
Trapshooting association, but did not
name one member of the team, much
less ten, and has not had any inten
tion of naming the team, as that
duty was not assigned him. He will
be assisted in that duty by E. R. Gal-
vin, president of the American Trap
shooting association: T. H. Keller,
chairman of the executive committee
of the same association; Stoney Mc
Linn, its secretary-manager, and
Ralph L. Spotts, ex-amateur champion
of America, and a prominent member
of the 1912 American Olympic team.
In a statement just received from
the American Trapshooting associa
tion by President Newland of the
Portland Gun club, Clark has the fol
lowing to say:
No team has been selected newspaper
reports to the contrary are absolutely
without any foundation.
The team is to be selected about June 1,
nd the following will, alone with other
data, be taken into consideration when
making our selections:
1. Ability aud skill with a double.

COLORED LEAGUE PLANNED
Negrro Baseball Fans of South to
Organize Regular Circuit.
Colored baseball men representing
ten of the largest cities in the south
are planning on forming a southern
colored baseball league.
The following cities will be repre
sented: Nashville. Birmingham, Knox-

Atlanta. Jacksonville, Montgomery,
Pensacola and New Orleans.
The organization of this league has
the support of the leading men in the
Southern league. The plan is for this
league to work in conjunction with
the Southern league, games being
scheduled in a town where there is a
Southern league team only on dates
when the white team is on the'road.

Warden Shoemaker reports that
the work on the new state hatchery
at Oakridge is progressing and that
it will be completed by early summer.

107 THREE-YEAR-OLDS ENTER
FOR MAY KENTUCKY DERBY
$36,000 Card Now Promises to Be Open Event With No Special Horse
rvmsVTLLE. Kr- March 27.
I (Special.) With Man o'War out
-I i of the way it is generally agreed
that the Kentucky derby, which will
be renewed at Churchill Downs in
May with a gross value of $36,000 or
$38,000, is an open race. Not all of
the 107 three-year-old colts and fillies
that have been nominated for the
derby may be considered as having
chances, but a dozen or more ui m
best look be pretty well matched,
and among the best are five or six
foreign bred colts and nines oi ine
highest quality. So it is easily possi
ble that this year's derby may go to
a foreign three-year-old, as did the
derbies of 1916 and 1917, which were

George Smith or Omar Khayyam.
George Smith was rather an erratic
performer as a two year old, although
he discovered high speed on oc
casions. Omar Khayyam was an out-and-out
failure, probably because he
was bucking his shins pretty much
throughout the season of 1916.
Of Donnaconna, a son of Prince
Palatine and Kildonan and. a half
brother of Orestes, a lot has been
written already. It is sufficient to
say here that his performance In the
Walden stakes at Pimlico last No
vember, when he ran Dominique to a
head in spite of a bad ride, stamped
him- as a distance runner of the
Cleopatra and Constancy, the for
mer a daughter of Corcyra and Gal
lice, the latter a daughter of Am
bassador and Simenas Daughter, were j
the star 2-year-old fillies of the sea
son of 1919. In the Hopeful at Sara
toga last August Cleopatra had the
brilliant Man o'War fairly straight.
Constancy, winner of the spinaway
at Saratoga in August and the $10,
000 eastern shore at Havre de Grace
in September, had On Watch going
in the manor handicap at Laurel Park
in October. Constancy was making a
concession of four pounds to On
Watch on this occasion and she had
some luck at the post.
Prince Pal, which "has Just been
purchased by Edward F. Simms and
Henry Oliver, is a son of Prince Pala
tine and Wilful Maid II.
King Thrush, like Constancy,
member of the powerful stable of
Commander J. K. L. Ross of Montreal,
was a winner at Aqueduct last July
and on one occasion at Saratoga in
August he worked half a mile in 46
seconds, five furlongs in :58. and
pulled up three-quarters in 1:12.
Faison Dore seems to be out of
place in a derby, but Royal Jester,
an imported son of Black Jester and
Primula, for which Commander Ross
paid $14,600 at the Hancock sale of
1918, at which he paid only $3000 for
King Thrush, may turn out to be a
star. Royal Jester is small and com
pact and he looks like a comer.
St. Allan, a son of Bridge of Allan
and St. Aelwina, for which Daniel
Cunningham paid $8500 last April to
George Wlngfleld, his Importer, was
slow finding his legs last season, but
he ran a couple of races that were
as good as anything Omar Khayyam
showed in his first season.
Another outlander that wintered at
Hot Springs of which big things are
expected is Rouleau, a son of Tracery
and Royal Coinage, belonging to
Montfort Jones of Mississippi. Rou
leau brought $13,000 at the Belmont
sale of 1918. His purchaser was John
Madden, who sold him to Mr. Jones
