Here are two recorda of a pitcher
you've all heard about:
Won. Lost. Pet.
1913 1 5 .200
1914 9 1 .900
The 1913 record was made while
the pitcher waa kept warming
the bench or hurling to bats
men in practice. In a whole
season this pitcher was seen in
twenty-three games, sometimes
lasting a whole inning.
The 1914 record is the work of
this same fellow'whcn, given a
chance to pitch in his turn. His
club in 1913 is miles ahead of
the 1914 outfit in playing
The 1913 club' is the Griffmen. The

As For Upsets
Eight years ago at this stage the
White Sox were a bad seventh. They
were a bad seventh on into July. Appar

peppery dope, they never had a chance
to finish in the first division. But by

Jerry Travers agrees with Harry Var
don anent the trapping and bunkering
of American golf courses. "We'll never
have a chance to compete upon even
terms with the English." e says, "until
our courses are arranged to develop
one's game. This is especially true of
wooden club play. Over in England
and Scotland you have to use wood
from the tee, and you have to play
straight. Over here you can slap the
ball any old way or use an iron without
trouble. They are always up against
a championship test and we are not.
Thev have to use the wood, and use It
properly, and we don't. Abroad each
drive has to be placed, not merely slap
ped somewhere out Into a fairway 100
yards across. Some day we'll come to
the proper Idea of trapping our courses,
and until we do golf development will
be just that far backward.
