Right after Me "announced"
couple of weeks ago that the
Portland Ducks were "In", they
began losing steadily. Satur
day we were all prepared to declare-
them "out" again, but
didn't get around to It and then
they started winning again. We
do not expect to make any mdre
predictions on that race.
While the American Tjo-I nn Ann.
vention was going on In Portland
mere was so much news that the
reporters couldn't scoop It all in,
even on the fly. And so while
winners of the Legion golf tour
nament were announced, no men
tion was made of runners-up In
tne two divisions.
Belated recognition therefore
is fn order for Graham Sharkey,
pro at the Salem Golf club. He
ranked second In the tourna
ment, next to Dr. Clifford Ba
ker of Kalama. They were In
the army division, leaders in
which shot b little stronger
golf than the navy division in
which Dr. O. P. Willing was the
winner. .
Sharkey sava there are no
traps on the Waverly course and
of the 150 shots he took, he es
timates 110 were trao shots, hut

play here can play anywhere.

strict accuracy It should be noted
that It was not the Senator hn
played Woodburn, but a team or
ganised by Frisco Edwards, who
often has managed the Senators,
so probably Woodburn didn't
know the difference.
We gather from the account
that Frisco took quite a rai

There is plenty of excuse for the
broad smiles exhibited here by
Manager Joe McCarthy of the New
York Yankees. By their victory
over the Cleveland Indians at Cleve
land, the Yanks have cinched the
pennant and qualified for the World
Series. Incidentally Joe is the only
man to lead teams to championships
in both major leagues. He won the
National League pennant with the
Chicago Cubs in 1929.
Ninteen members of the Salem
Golf club completed their qualify
