The unfortunate conditions which

Northern districts. The fair contest
ants were submitted in the race to
totally unnecessary hardships, par
tlcularly on account of the freezlngly
cold water, and finished badly done

Such punishing tests are hardly
conducive to the best Interests of
the sport. Doubtless the setting of
the September date was due to dif
ficulty in finding an easier one which
would not conflict with other cham
pionship fixtures, but If the A A. U.
authorities made it a practice to
award all sanctions well In sdvancc
t hi difficulty would be avoided
There Is at present too great an
Inclination to await the eleventh

time, not after the season is hAlf

Needs a Hundred Shots
To Make One Hcfe When
Dry Weather Arrived
Some golf players are led to
extraordinary length and to the
compilation of some remarkable
scores by perseverance or ob
stinacy, call it what one will.
Up in the mountains a golfer
took over 100 strokes for one
hole, and the hole was a short
one, at that The green was lo
cated on the top of a hill, and in
dry weather It was necessary to
land the ball squarely on the
green or It would roll back to the
starting place. The man In ques
tion was not fortunate, to say the
least. Time and again he essay
ed the task. His frantic efforts
to reach the plateau soon de
veloped from a test of skill into
one of endurance. Try as he
would, he could not reach the
top, where safety lay. As fast
as he played the shot the ball
came running back to him, with
a persistency which was heart
breaking. Finally a lucky
"swipe" got him home and the
ball stuck, but the actual score
for the hole bad mounted to three
figures.
