Gerald L. Patterson of Australia in

was the climax of the long series f

his play has been consistent and bril

of the Australian by a combination
of brilliant plays and clever strategy.
He found his opponent's weakest

GARDNER DRAWS PLAUDITS OF
ENGLISH GOLFERS AND PRESS
Sincere Tribute Paid American Who Battled England's Best, Only to
Succumb, in Feature Play, to Cyril Tolley.
BY FRANCIS OUIMET.
ET me add my little say in token
of esteem of Robert A. Gardner,
Chicago's wonderful' and popu
lar golfer, on account of his truly re
markable performance In carrying

teur golfer, to an

FRANCIS OUlMET.not so much that
ie went so far or display ed such
ibundant nerve while furnish 1 n g
the golfing world witn such a keen
match, bit that he was forced to
play such olose and nerve-wrecking
matches each day in order to reach
the finals. I never recall any golfer
having had such continuous fighting
to do as had Bob in England. Usual
ly a competitor who reaches the final
has been fortunate in that he has
been able to win a few of his matches
with comparative ease, thereby al
lowing himself to store his reserve
power for the critical situation.
Gardner's Matches Dlfficnlt.
In Gardner's case there was never
an occasion when he could relax. On
the contrary, he was called upon, day
after day, to wrestle victory in a
struggle that was soul trying. To
have met such conditions and to have
come through to the last match
stamps Gardner as one of the greatest
competitors golf ever knew.
What clinches this arjuraent was
his display of courage against young
Tolley. imagine yourseir playing In
such a match where the stake was
greater than, ever before and facing
a situation where you were three
down and four to play. Certainly this
is not an enviable position for any
one to face. And when your op
ponent has proven himself as the best
of all England the weight of that
situation becomes triple-fold. Here
was a task that few golfers would
dare brave. -
Last Hole Heartbreaking.
But good, old Bob Gardner pos
sessed that Irresistible courage that
knows no defeat.. Fighting against
such overwhelming odds, this splen
did boy squared the match on 'the
36th green. It must have been heart
breaking to have los that match on
the extra hole, after such a magnifi
cent display of courage and fine golf,
especially when Gardner scored a par
tnree on mat ratal 37th.
But Bob- Gardner should feel as
elated and as satisfied as everyone
of his countrymen. One feels proud
of being an American player when,
one of them makes such a magnifl-,
cent uphill battle out of an English
championship and has the courage to
fight magnificently up to the bitter
end, playing golf all the while he
was going down to defeat.
That Gardner has scored heavily
for American golf is evidenced by the
tone of the English press. The Lon
don Times went" so far in Its admira
tion of Gardner as both golfer and
sportsman as to state that in wanting
Gardner to lose they realized it was
exceedingly hateful to feel that way
about it. v
Tribute Paid American.
That Gardner displayed remark
able golf; that he was a fighter all
the way to that last fateful 37th hole,
is brought more clearly to mind when
one recalls that he disposed of such
excellent British golfers as the Hon.
Michael Scott and Edward Blackwell
on his way to the finals, -and that
Harold Hilton, Ball and other cracks
were forced to defeat. There was a
field worthy of any player's best, and
right well did Gardner match It
stroke for stroke. So splendid was
his play -that were I to pick an in
ternational -amateur ranking today I
would bracket Bob Gardner with
Cyril Tolley at No. 1. j
Cyril Tolley, whose birdie two on
the 37th disposed of Gardner, cer
tainly lived up to the many flattering
things written about hisklll at golf.
It is a pleasure to congratulate him
on his victory. But there is even
more pleasure and satisfaction in
knowing that we have in America
Bob Gardner, one capable of holding
his own with the best the British
Isles can produce. And because of
the record of Bob Gardner, twice our
amateur champion and also the first
man to clear 13 feet in the pole vault
which feat he accomplished the
same year he won his amateur title
let me express the sincere wish that
this same Bob Gardner Is to be the
next American to win the coveted
British 'amateur championship. No
player better deserves that honor.

NEW YORK, July 3. The college
baseball season of 1920, which has
now practically cqme to a close, has
been marked by the keenest and most
interesting struggles for the mythi
cal championship of the east that
have taken place in many a year,
Almost from the opening of the cam
paign the situation in the collegiate
world has been a most complicated
one. Teams that had been heralded
far and wide as the foremost con
tenders for the title were defeated
by supposedly weak aggregations
with apparently little difficulty and
unexpected reverses have been the
rule rather than the exception.
In many respects the past season
has been a most successful one.
College baseball received its full
share of the ever-increasing nopu
larity of the game, and record crowds
have turned out to witness many o
the intercollegiate contests.
The Holy Cross nine was undoubt
edly the best among the eastern col
leges last season and none could dis
pute its claim to the title. The Wor
cester collegians defeated most of the
leading teams and won 21 out of its
22 contests, a most remarkable rec
ord. Their only setback was sus
tained at the hands of Fordham in
an extra-inning game.. This year,
however, neither Holy Cross nor any
other team has a clean-cut right to
the championship and the task of
choosing the winner is a most diffi
There are five colleges which stand
out most prominently as claimants for
the title, and these are Georgetown.
Holy Cross, Lafayette, Penn State and
the Navy. It Is the opinion that of
these five contenders Georgetown has
the best team, and that the other
four should be rated In the above

CASPER, Wyo.. July 3. Authority
has been granted by the national
headquarters of the Amateur Athletic
union for the organization of a
Wyoming Athletic union, a local or
ganization now iuncuomng.
Claims for "world's records" are
constantly being made for this event
and that when there is "no such ani
mal." The Federated Athletic unions
of the world recognize only certain
stipulated records and the shortest
distance so recognized fVi either track
or swimming is 100 yards or 100
meters. Any mark under these dis
tances Is not recognized nor allowed
as a world mark, but the A- A. U. of
the United States allows such per
formances as "meritorious perform
ances" and they are not even sched
uled as a "record."
Konowaloffa Time Bettered.
Lately at Seattle Mltrle Konowaloff
awam 50 yards back stroke In 32 3-5
seconds and it was immediately
claimed as a "world record" and com
parison was made with Duke Kahana
moku's old U. S. "meritorious per
formance of 32 4-5 made at Sutro
Baths. San Francisco, July 6. 1913.
Mltrle undoubtedly felt considerable
pleasure at being told he had made a
world record, but he will feel equal
chagrin and disappointment when he
learns that his mark is only a "Paci
fic Northwest A. A. U. meritorious
The present best meritorious per
formance for this back stroke dis
tance is 29 3-5 seconds made by War
ren Kealoha at Honolulu on May 1,
1920. That is both the best perform
ance for America and the world. The
previous best performance was 30
seconds, made by Harry J. He'oner at
Chicago March S, 1913. The present
Pacific Coast meritorious performance
was made June 8, 191S. at the Nep
tune Beach tank, Alameda, by Harold
Kruger and his time was 30 4-5 sec
onds. These times just go to prove
that a close study and tab on records
must be kept before any claims
should be made.
Coaches Deserve Credit.
The ever occurring claim for
records is due entirely to ignorance
n the first place of what events are
allowed for records and in the second
place, guess work. Another factor
that makes claims for records is the
fact that when a coach has a good
swimmer it is natural that said coach
wants to see his man "do something.
Iti brings credit to the swimmer and
places the coach before the public
Coaches do not deliberately manufac
ture records, but they have In their
mind a time or performance that
once was a record and they have not
kept close enough tab on the situation
to know that what used to be the
record or meritorious performance
has long ago been broken.
When a swimmer or track man
makes a meritorious performance or
record the A. A. U. of the United
States Is only too glad to acknowledge
It and put It on the books provided
the mark has been made under condi
tions laid down by the rules govern
ing records. The mark made at Se
attle is the best record for that event
In the Pacific Northwest and if proper
record papers are drawn up and pre
sented to T. Morris Dunn of Portland,
secretary of the P. N. W. Association
of the A. A. U. it will be credited as a
new record for that section of the
A. A. U.. but the mark is not eligible
for recognition as a new U. S. or
world mark. It Is not a record In the
first place but simply a "meritorious
performance" for the northwest.'

BY RUTH STACKER.
(This is the third of a series of lessons
on swimming. )
HE side stroke is one of the most
popular of long-distance swim
ming strokes and one of the most
graceful. It is particularly adapted
to rough-water swimming. In that the
face is protected a good deal when
buffet sr the'waves.
The kick is similar to the kick used
in the breast stroke or trudgeon, ex
cepting for the fact that the body is
on the side. The legs are drawn up
toward the body like a frog, thrown
out, stiffened and brought into posi
tion with a snap, so that the body is
The first position of the kick should
be to draw both legs up toward the
body, the left leg above the rigfit, the
knee toward the stomach, at the same
time the right leg. knee bent as in
walking position, should be thrown
back. Throw both legs out straddle
position, stiffen the knees and draw
them together, bringing the body
again on a perfect horizontal line.
This is called the scissor kick.
It is well to practice the kick at
the edge of the tank and have it
clearly in mind-before attempting to
use the arm stroke.
The arm stroke is simple. In the
first position arms are placed at
chest, .elbows bent. Throw the right
arm up in line with the head and the
left one toward the hip. Let the left
arm rest In position at the hip. Pull
the right arm on down through the
water and bring both arms back into
the first position. Stand, bending
toward the side on which you intend
to swim and practice this arm stroke
on land before you enter the water.
In putting the strokes together,
stand with one foot on the bottom of
the tank, push off and take your first
