' Chances for a regular municipal
golf course are beginning to look up.
The made land in the north end of
Lincoln park has been available for
the Scotch game for some time, but
little interest was shown by the park
board in the spor.t No money was on
hand to improve the course and it
was laid- out in a haphazard manner
by players themselves.
In time a full 18-hole course will
be put in and conditions should make
it one of the best courses in the vicin
ity of Chicago. The turf more nearly
resembles that found la the English
seacoast courses than does that of
any other club in the west. A golf ar
chitect should be secured properly to
lay out the holes, install the neces
sary traps and make the present nine
hole course "sporty."
Players on the North Side have or
ganized the Lincoln Park Golf club,
modeled after the clubs on the mu
nicipal links in Jackson and Garfield
parks, and application will be mado.

be prepared. Women and children

The hew nine-hole course is 160
yards longer than the longest niiie at
Jackson park, and 1,000 yards longer
than the Garfield park course.
In the Conference track 3nd field
meet at Urbana Saturday, which Wis

marks of the western athletes ex
celled the east in seven of the 13
events in which both compete. This
is the first time the west has been on
top. Especially in track events has
the west the best showing, Simpson
of Missouri making the most sensa

reliance of the Cubs, is not as good
now as he was at the start of the sea- '

tior for this decrease in efficiency..
And a remedy Is at hand that will J
soon bring Big Jim back to his for

Through the early stages of the

Manager Bresnahan's biggest task,
Vaughn was his main reliance. He
needed a very few runs to win his .
games and was shoved into the fray
as every opportunity. He was used
too often for his own good, but there
was no other way out of the difficulty
for the manager.
He realized that sooner or later
Vaughn would be worked out, but
hoped that by that tune the other
pitchers would be able to take up the
burden. This hope has been realized. t
