A special golf tournament will be
staged at the Harlem course Satur
day and Sunday, with an entrance
fee of $1. Competition will be in two
divisions, and one qualifying card of
18 holes must be turned in. Worth
while prizes fwill be given to winners
of the two sections and to the run-ners-up.
-Arranging the tournament in two
divisions gives opportunity for vic
tory to the duffer, as one class will
be composed of the fekws who take
in the neighborhood of 100 for the
course. The tournament is being
promoted in a worthy cause, but the
object of it is told only to prospec
tive entrants, the beenfit being in
tended as a surprise.
Lincoln Park golf course is in.con
dition, according to the commission
.ers, and big crowds are expected for
Saturday and Sunday competition.
The North Side course does riot com
pare with Jackson park at present,
but the spongy turf and the cross
wind from the lake make for great

By Mark Shields '
A tendency to run bases in a care
free manner at some periods, and on
other occasions to lag on the paths,
is costing the Cubs some runs, de
spite their redoubtable attack. With
a little headier work on the runways
the locals would be making more
dents in the counting block.
As the Cubs finally succeeded in
trimming the Phillies yesterday, this
is a fine occasion to discourse on the
shortcomings, as no indictment of
peevishness or crabbiness can be is
sued because of a defeat.
Give the locals what for the mo-'
ment appears to be a comfortable
lead and they do not think much of
increasing it. They at once throw
dff all restrictions and proceed to run
wild around the cushions, usually
with disastrous results.
Yesterday they counted eight runs
and won by a margin of five, but this
margin could have been easily wiped
out by the aliens at one stage, and
a little larger lead would have given
the home folks a greater feeling of
Our fourth inning was a fair sam
ple. Four runs had rolled home on
some singled and a homer by Frank
Schulte. Flack was on gecond base
and one man was defunct. Cy Wil
liams had three balls called and a
single strike. Prospects were bright
for . some more counters. Flack
thought it would be fine business to
steal third base on the next pitch.
He attempted the play, but was
flaeged easily by several feet.
The pitch was bad and Williams
walked. Thatjwouid have put two
on and one out. Cy then figured on
stealing second, but he also was
pegged at the bag. Cy's attempt was
not poor baseball, but there was little-profit
to be gained from Flack's
