1 .il things and especially in pugilistic
sport. Tho people of New York have pa
uoiilzed the ring for the Ian two years
as It was never before patronized in all its
history. They have put many tens of thou-i-.irds
of dullars into the coffers of fighters,
much more money than they aro ever llke

There is no heavy m n,ht In England to

WASHINGTON MAKES A
STAND FOR CLEAN SPORT.
Faculty of the Big College Warns Students
That Members of Athletic Teams Must Be
Bona-Fide Undergraduates News
and Gossip of the Gridiron.
3T C. R. MCCARTHY.
Washington Vniveisity football plav. rs
have been given to understand by the I'ucn'
ty that such practi-es as were used to get
a team for the schojl the last three seasons
will not be tolerated this season, and that
the team which repiesente the university
cannot pis-" agaln-st any team that M
known to bavo -nen flaying on it wbo aro
not bona Ode members of the school which
tb it team represents.
T'le faculty certal.ily Is to be enrnmended
for ?uch action, as It mians the behiiininsj
of the crreade that is bound to come
I'galnst ao-called "ringers" in school ath
letics. Last year Washington University
football team wa3 largely made up ot men
who did not attend the Institution and
mado no pretense of doing so. When this
tiecamo gem-rally known, and bovs Judt
ready to tnier college got the Idea that
they had no chance to p'.ay football If they
went to Washington Cnlverblty they wouli
at once choose anoiher c dlege in b !i 1 1
finish tielr educatlaca. The plan was car
ried so fur last fad that tome very uood
players, who wero students, eumd not
make the team, but wero ousted by men
who were their Inferiors at every point of
tho game.
This year nnd every year hereafter the
potley will be reverted and carried to the
oilier tremfl. Manager niler. is In a 1
quandary over the advisability of playing J
a game with the team that will go umier
the nao of the Marion-Sims Medical Cel
Iege. Thl3 la the other extreme. Indeed, as
the men on that teara are simon pure ami
teurs If tbey are not studmg medicine, and
they are playlns the gairie just because
they love It.
That school athletes need ?omo strict
rules and tho enforcement of them, to rid
them of some men who are playing foot
ball, winning athletic contests and so forth,
who aro not bona hue studenu. Is a well
known fact to every follower of the game
In St. Lotils. If other schools follow the
esampls that has oeen eet by the Wash- '
.nKton University. St. Louis will have puie '
amatcura and inoro interesting interoalUsi
ate contents.
It is strange that the Washington Uni
versity faculty should be the flrst to make
this move, as It hag alwajs been credited
with being the lea-.t interested in utliletlca.
It Id good news, at ary rate, as Washington
ii bound to be the leader tn athletics over
the entire Southwest. If not tho Went, when
Installed In her new quarters out on tho
fcklnker road. When a lcacer nmong col
leges makes an Important move the others
have to follow suit in t-hort order, and it is
only a question of time when all St, l.oui 1
Mhoois will declare against the "ringer"
tard clean irort will be had onco more.
Coach Van Vleck already has the Smith
Academy candidates working very hard,
a-id by Thurda. when the school opens for
the fall term, he will have the Ighl or
nine now prc.cu- ing in such shape that bo
can give tt t new ones enough attention to
mnko them catch up with the seasoned
lads. The boss have Iota of tontidence lit
their new coach, nnd claim that what ho
does not know utxiut football i not worth
knowtnir.
The Christian Ilrothcro' College bovs are
tn the sa-ne- tix in repaid to a coae-u that
the High Scnool has been In Ivt a month.
The managers of both teams claim that all
the coachei. or those that have pretensions
tn that line, think that the school athletic
associations are really banking institutions
and can afford to pay most any old prlco
for the iteslstance of a man who will only
claim that lie Is a football coach.
The High School has bad orfers from
some men that do not know as much about
tl.e game as any member of tho regular
team, un.i they Invariably want big sal
aries, while thoe men w ho do know the
game and ore capable coaches will not
ace'ept remuneration for their services, at
it is reward enough for them to see their
teani3 win. but unfortunately all of this
ciuss ate too busy this fall and cannot
spare a moment's time for football.
At present It looks very much as though
both tho Hii;h Seliool and C. Ii C will
go through the seison without outside as
sistance, whlio St. Ioni-i Univenltv and
Smith Academy are well fixed In tins re
spect. Washington University has nothing
In tt? wav of a coach and very little In
the way of players. Those she ins are es
good as. any in tbo city, but light now
thire are bu: five of tbem. The L't.iverMty
will open next Thursdaj, and quite a num
ber of cracker-Jacks are expected to make
their apiearance. Newman Samuel will re
turn from the Kast that aay and tdiould be
of great help to the team, as be has been
taking lot-, of exerclso all summer and haa
strengthened himself ccnIde-rabi.
"our lab men v.ero at the I'to-time field
Friday and all of them KOt Into uniform
and practiced with the Washington and
Smith bovn. The college m-n arc to ing
for the 'varsity at New Huvtn. nnd de
parted yesterda for the hast with hopes
of being placed at the training table upon
anval there. Tb- men were Cook I'.wis,
Jim and George Reynolds and LouU At
kinson. St. Louis University foot bat players fe-11
over themselves In their enthusiasm when
Martin Delaney arrived at the school Fri
day morning. In the afternoon. In answer
to his eUI for candidates, twenty-two promising-looking
young athletes donned the
moleskins and rportcd for their tlrst work
out of the grldiion fja-oti. Nearly oil of
last year's team was 011 hand, in addition
'o a number of green men. The latt. r vv.ll
koep 1 Coach Ielaney very busy for some
time, although not without promise of re
ward, as a few of them aro as l'kely-ap-pearlng
candidates 33 ever stepped along
uny Held.
Nearly all of this month the University
bovs have been complaining that athletics
would hurt their football team. Even the
uav of D laney's return tho best athlete lr
ho school was heatd to sav that the Uni
versity was out cf football tills season with
Its men trying to win the runs, jumps, and
so forth, at the Coliseum, but that same
man was the most enthusiastic over the
team's chances Friday when Delanry an
nounced thnt athletics would be dropped
after next week no attention being paid to
tho proposed "championship games" at the
Col.seum the latter part of October. He
I" not in favor of putting his boys in turn
ers' contests, in which they meet Ke.i'-oned
men who have practiced such specialties .s
Hicar-throwitig and ropo-clinibing all tn-ir
lives. Tills tnear.s ihat the Unlvers.ty bovs
will devote all their spare time to footbal'
attir this week, r.nd most of It this week,
ns Delaney does not care much whi ther a
Fl.ov.lng Is made or not. but thinks thai
as the beiys are entered they might as well
compete.
About tfce most promising green man Is
IM Walh, who was on the tr&ck team last
spring, and has had considerable experience
in general athletics, but has never before
played football. Walsh is tall, and weighs
about 175 pounds This does not tell much
about him. however, as It U his propor
tions that Immediately impress one with
the fact that he should mike a crack feKit
ball plavtr, with his broad shoulders, bg
chest and poweiful limbs Walsh was tried
at guard, and will undoubtedly -linke the
pos.tion, as he has the courage tl.at w.II
stand an awful pounding before giving an
lneh.
Frank White will play center again, nnd
If energy and ambition eount for much, tho
other local centers will have a ban! row to
hoe, as he has the weight and cleverness to
back up his great desire U. have his team

RAIN AND COOL WEATHER
MAKE GOLF WORTH WHILE.
Local Links Are Almost Burned Up by the Sun
and Drought Country Club in Ex
cellent Condition Simpson and
the Championship.
Wednemlay's rain, cold weithor and the
return of tho summer absntees -jiil maku
the links about St. Louis lively and wortn
playing on this week. The seaside resorters
were missed, the beat wan horrible, but the
absence of rain waa the worst of alb In
deed, had It not coma when It did the links
would have been burned out of playing con
dition. For el2ht days not two ounce-s of
water had fallen on la bOW odd acres of
golf land in St. Louis County and city. It
was like playing golf on the Mojave desert.
You vlare not take sod, for If thero had
been sod to take you would huve been
smothered in the duet, and you would have
bioken your club. Such an unpleasant sub
ject is not very pleasing discussion Just now
when the grass Is coming up and the Jon;
mashle shot lies dead by tho flair.
In c wcik or so they will be talkirz of
fall tournaments. This promise's to be a
very busy full in that line hore
bouts There will be the bis open
tournament of the Country Cli.b, wnich de
cides the championship of St. Louis and
county. The date for this event has not
yet been set. No doubt It will come along
at the U'uai time, the first of November.
Last iej.r this tournament had some forty

I'M. All bona fide players, too, no com
Pllmentaiy entrants. This will ri-pretent an
Increase uf lii per cent In golllng sport here
abouts, which is not so bad for one year.
Tl.o Joekiy Club is laying plain lor a
big handicap tourney to follow the open
event. Lsst year the hotse club gave s.
drop-of-the-hat affair, which exulted a great
deal of interest una brought forth a-lot of
excellent players hitherto unknown. Mr.
McCreery, who Is chairman ot tho
Jockey Club Greens Committee, is deter
mined that his rext affair shall far out
shine that of last year, which wa a. hurried
and maiden eftort.
He says that his prizes will far exceed
In value and beauty anything hitherto of
fered for golf competition in the Southwest.
They mil be "numerous, useful and vaiu
ble." Mr. McCieery says that he expects
Ix entries rur Lis open handicap tourna
ment. It Is not likely that tl.e Field Club will
tliow the season to go by without a tour
nament of more than club or dual Import
ance. The lilsscll'a i'olnt Club ha.s recent
ly finished lis ne-vv clubhouse, and a fall
house wrming is on the tapis. Summer
houscwarmings are all right, but they cotn
pai Illy mth the fall aii'a.rs of that
nature Prior to this season the limited
quarters at the disuosr.l of this excellent
und hospitable resort of good fellows and I
lovely women have not made It an object
to entertain large numbers of visiting
g ilfers. This fall It will be different. Thero
is r.o finer place to go than to the Field
Club no better people or none half as hos
piuble. If you want dlrticult links they
have them In sueli awful quantities, all
stocks, and all brands.
Almost any one would b glad to pay a T5
entiy fee to play over the Country Ciub
links In an open tournament If he could nut
get to do It in any other way Tboi.gh the
ilnl.s near the county neat are not of kind
and nrable nature', they certainly bear com
parison with any In the West-. Naturally
the soil Is unkind and IlI-dl.oosed to grass.
Yet ilackrel' has made the bluo prs-s grow
where a year ago thistles had their own
thorny troubles rearing their fuzzy crests
to the breeze. I did not see the links from
the advent of the recent prolonged drou-iit
until yesterday. They are a surprise The
fair green Is 111 cspiial condition. When you
consider the lorg drought Its condition Is
s.mply remarkable It must have been a
even a Jolly gooel toasting too. In fact,
Norman "old ! they were. Funny those
Englishmen. JJost nny one else would have

groaned, "They got a of a burnln" '
V' t Norman merely Millies and murmurs.
"They- got a Jolly good toasting" milk and
hom-y where there sliould be sulphur and

The greens are pretty well burned, but
not so badly as they are elsewhere. The
course Is regulated as a golf links 5houId
be. It will be much beticr this fall, when
Mackrell opens the new greens. Oh, It pays
to spend money on a golf coutse.
The Algonquin courses were burned out

Coach Etagg tf the Unlvcslly of Chicago
took a hand in te scrimmage of Ida foot

sen those driving competitions at hoire
shows where the artillery men stand still
and have stakes driven half an inch from

around ard througn the stakos at a gallop,
never tcu hing one-? That Is something
like driving up that hill from the creek
bottom to the cikbth green at Webster.
There Is the green and between you and it
are two great big tree- You can Just se
tho green cuddled between their loving
arms. There is Just place for a perfectly
driven ball to get between tte leaves of
both with a elndge and a swish. If you puil

Oh. those Welister trees. They ruin a

That cleanest of golfing places, the Fair
Ground, has been allowed to run wild a
good deal In tho summer. The. greens are
very hempy save theme at the lake, and they
are as lull of wild grass as a Kauris
steer. In tho racing season the Fair
green was not cm regularly and the wlro
grass nourishes as It will If given a Cham a,
confound it. The wild grass Is very preva

so good when taken care of The tecs,
which are the only grass grounds herea

Then the greens are not cut largo enough,
though all t'.at Is needed to make a green
Is to put the mower on. on two of the
greens wheie n long second goeg on there
Is not room enough to illp a dollar for tho
eirlnks. not to speak of carrying a bunker
11: lwi yards and lying 011 the table. Then
the eighth hole Is a libel on golf. Too
short for a driver, too long fcr a cleeek.
With a yard square to pitch on a fellow
would need a balloon to relay his ball to
tho proper lie. Tfce tee should be moved
baek for a driver or up for an lion. There
Is an ugly, big, weedy hazard In front to
j.et the bliori iron and the penalizing track
behind to catch the driver nil! It was a
pood hole last fall when it stai ted near tho
No. 2 tee, and took a drive and a mashle.
But some of tho players protested! it was
too much of a walk from No. 7 green to
the tee. So It was moved un. It wantil

more like gulf, anyhow.
The eighth, ninth and third greens are
cut too nar-ow. It is impossible to pitch a
short ball from the bide of the course
on the green nnd hold It there when the
playing lie Is cloee up The long grass in
tervenes. Pitch over and It rolls off. Pitch
short and It sticka In the gras.
The trap bunker. In on the right of No. 1,
just does catch a good straight drive from
the short lee. It I3 not ten feet out of
hole line at any time. Playing from tho
long tee a slice ball lying on the fair green
will have to bo played ove-r thD trap. Th'.s
cannot be done and tco stccn held. It will
