comparison was 9 1-3 runs to 8.
The American league outscored its
rival by nearly 100 runs in the first
month of the season and increased
this lead to more than . 200 in the
next three weeks. The famous l-to-0
pitchers' battles, of frequent occur

The National league had a slight

When the league disbanded at th
close of the 1911 season, Bancroft
caught on with the Portland club of
the Pacific Coast league, where h
remained until the close of the 1914
season, when be was bought by the
Phillies. The following spring he
clinched a berth as regular shortstop
of the Quaker City team and neve
relinquished thar berth until hi
transfer to the Giants.
He was one of the most impo tr
over the Gearhart course, although the
matter of the purchase of some prop
erty nearer Astoria was also discussed
at the first meeting. Three or four
residents of Astoria have promised to
provide the money and form a holding
company should the club decide to
carry out the project.
An effort will be made to obtain

Five years later Jerry Travers, then
at the top of his fame, crossed the at-

But Jerry was unable to keep up his
fine work and as a result of this was
put out early in the tournament. Then
we had a few other Invasions or Eng

next serious attempt 'was that made
by the latter In 1912. Chick was de

tralian named Bruce Pearce. But as
the match went an extra hole the

English Golfers Get Surprise.
The big surprise to English golfers
followed . in 1913 when Heinrich
Schmidt, never an American cham
pion, entered the lists for the BrltisL
amateur. Schmidt was not consid
ered in the advance dope, but he
threw a great scare into England
when he came through to the finals,
eoing down to defeat at the bands
of Harold Hilton In another extra
hole match, after apparently having
a comfortable victory tucked in his

was launched, but it proved to be the
worst sort of a false alarm. I re
call the facts of that year particularly
well, as I happened to be a member
of the American team which, except

That has been the history of our
attempts at British title down to the
present, when Bob Gardner made his
gallant fight and when we look for
ward with such strong hopes to the
play of Walter Hagen and Jim Barnes
in the British open. That they have
chance Is freely admitted by Brit
ish golfers, especially since their fine
play to date. But Vardon says the
odds each confronts are at least eight

whether native or foreign.
Job May Prove Difficult.
The defeat of Mitchell and George
Duncan in a four-ball contest at Deal
not long ago has awakened the Eng
lish to the fact that in defeating
Hagen and Barnes for their title they
have a job of greatest difficulty. As
this was staged for a good sized
purse, the proof is before everyone

Gardner's showing will give our two
representatives added confidence and

to the effect that we have advanced
so far and so rapidly in golf in Amer

the players of any nation. All in all
this looks like a great American year
and here's hoping we add the British
open title to our list of performances.
We can look forward with much
satisfaction to this affair. No better
