BOOST FOR DAVIDSON
NATIONAL GOLF AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP
SaZSy- dbrzed J ' Jj
Champion Davy Herron and Runner-Up, Bobby Jones.
Writing for tliu Now York Kvenlng Post. P. C. Pulver, ti conservative golf
expert, Bllpn H. Davidson llirrun. thu Oakmoiit hoy. who won the national
uniatctir championship, tlic following well-deserved bouquet:
"Tho victory of S. Dinldsnn H.-rron In the llnal of tin- national champion
ship at Onkmont onco ukmIii proves that golf Is a huiii'h game. Seniors enjoy
thu links In their own way and Juniors nlso have their limitations. Herron
at twenty-one Is stronger and outlasted Hobby .Junes need M-venteen Thu
margin of S and , gained entirely In thu nftemoon, serves to further bear
out that stntemcut.
"When crowded hurd after tho noon Intermission Jones was not equal to
tho taRk, but then It Is questionable If any amateur could have accomplished
what Herron did In the afternoon. Had he been opposed to un Oulmet or nu
Kvans, those past masters would probably have fared us badly ua Jouea
unless they could liuvu gained u lead In tho early hours."
BABE RUTH HARDEST HITTER
Connie Mack Compares Boston Slugger
With Anton, Brouthera and
Other Old Timers.
Some of the old timers are trying
to toll tho fans that whllo Itubu Ilttth
Is a terrlblo hitter, he could not com
paro with Bmuthers and Anson. Of
course that Is nil poppycock. Ituth
is thu hardest hitter tho game has
seen and Connie Mack Is one old
timer who will sny so. Says Mack :
"Anson and Hrouthors and Free
man I Why, Ituth could hit tho hall
Larder with one hand than those old
timers could hit It with two hands I
When Freeman made his record and
played with Washington there was
qulto a short right Held wall there.
Why, there were short right ileitis all
the wny around thu National League
that year. Chicago was short, too, and
so was tho old Wnlpole street Held In
lloston. Freeman was u hitter like
Cravath, Delehanty nnd Crawford,
probably nearer Crawford's stylo than
any of tho recent players. Roger
Connor, Dnn llrouthers and Sam
Thompson were tho real hard hitters
of the old days and they took swings
something Uko Ituth, but as 1 said
before, Ituth can hit harder with one
hand thnn they could hit them with
two hands. Why, It's uncanny thu way
ho hits them 1"

TO LIMIT SALE OR
TRADING OF PLAYERS
New Legislation at Meeting of
New York Giants Expected to Roar at
Suggestion, but It Probably Will
Get Them Nothing To End
Ono can see how some baseball legis
lation Is to be framed, writes Len
Wonstcr In Rrooklyn Times. Thu deals
which made the Giants conspicuous fig
ures will lead to the Introduction of n
rule ut the National League meeting
In December, limiting the sale or trad
ing of plnyers to about July 1. From
the throats of the Giants' owners thero
will come a loud roar, but It probably
will get them nothing, ns It Is whis
pered nt lenst live clubs already nro
lined up In favor of the passage of
such a rule. Itrooklyn Is one of them,
tho others being Cincinnati, which has
been making a hue and cry over "tho
buying of n pennant" by the Giants;
Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Philadelphia.
The New York club has loads of
money, and Chicago, which also Is
financially well fixed, will opposo the
proposed rule, and Uosfon may side
with them. The opponents will nttack
the Inconsistency of Prooklyn by re
calling thnt la 1010, when the Dodgers
wero headed for the championship,
they swopped Lew McCnrty to tho
Glnnts for Fred Merklo because Jako
Daubert was a physical unknown quan
tity. Other Vglslntlon will hnvo to do with
tho delivery of the ball. There nro at
least three clubs In the National
lengtio whose pitchers hnvo been ac
cused of using nn Illegal delivery
Philadelphia, Ilostou and Cincinnati.
Harney Dreyfuss, who Is at the bend
of tho movement to put an end to the
employment of freak deliveries, de
clares every club In the lenguo Is
carrying one or more of these nrtlsts.
Already he has enlisted the support of
lirooklyn nnd Chicago In the war on
tho shine, emery, talcum, paratlln and
spit balls, and he hopes to get the nec
essary votes to put the legislation
It seems there Is a rule thnt Nation
al league pitchers cannot apply for
eign substances to the ball, but It Is
n dead letter. At the December meet
ing steps will be taken to provide a
penalty for Its use. This Is calculated
to have tho desired effect.
GLENN WARNER'S TOUGH TASK
Material at Hand Is Poorest for Sev
eral Seasons and Rooters Are
Thu university of Pittsburgh foot
ball candidates were assembled by
Coach Glenn S. Warner, at the univer
sity engineering camp at Wludber, Pa
and the following day the Panthers
started their practice.
Tho coming season Is to bo nu un
usual em- in many ways, ami the
Panther rooters aren't too optimistic
as to tho outcome. Tho material Is
tho poorest In years, with few tried
performers available and the schedule
Is the hardest Pitt ever nrranged
While the return of Hastings, Dehnrt
nnd Morrow from the service bolstered
up the back Held considerably, the line
material Is very green.
It Is generally felt that Warner has
one of the biggest Jobs on his hands
that ho ever tackled to shape a team
to meet Penn, Georgia Tech, XV. and J.
Syracuse, Penn Statu nnd West Vir
ginia. "Jimmy" Dehurt, who was n lieu
tenant nnd Instructor at Mather avla
tlon Hold, California, Is tho new cap
tain. His election camo us a result ol
a letter vote. Dehnrt Is tho only man
who ever won his letter In four branch
cs of major sport here.
MANAGER M'GRAW UNCOVERS INFIELDER
WHO APPEARS TO BE FIND OF SEASON
Frank Frlsch, Giant Rookie, Who Is Making Good.
Manager McGraw Is almost reconciled to losing the National league pen
nnnt because of the playing of Frank Frlsch, his youthful second-sucker. Tho
Fordhnm student appears to have everything and Is balled as tho find of tho
season. Ho Jumped right from u college team Into n Giant uniform.
Frlsch Is not n "fresh" youngster. Hu simply Is nn nggresslvo ball
player, thu kind that fits In well with McGrnw's Idea of what n player should
bo. Tho Now York leader can overlook a lot of other faults In un athlete, but
Insists on u tighter.
An incident showing his belligerent nature cropped up In tho into series
with tho Itcds when tho Giants' hopes wero practically blasted. It whb tho
first Important set of games for Frlsch, and at ono stagu In tho proceedings
McGraw yanked thu collegian for u pinch hitter. What the youngster told
McGraw Is a classic among tho New York plnjers, part of which Is prlntublo
'Til show you I can hit."
The llrst tlmo up In tho next game ho cracked out n screeching single
And he didn't forget to call John's attention to It.
