Champion Martin Kern.
His victory in the national bowling
tournament at Cleveland makes Mar
tin Kern of St. Louis the undisputed
tenpin champion of America. For years
be has been known as one of the best
six bowlers in the country, but he has
been falling off during the past two
years. This has been due mostly to ili
health, and, ns his health improved re
cently. Kern came back into the form
that places him above all.
With the exception of the 1SX3 tour
nament. Mr. Kern has demanded notice
in every national tournament for
years. With the championship this year
he has won the Tint in trophy, which
was put up for the last time in Cleve
land. Kern won the trophy the second
year it was put up at the Buffalo tour-nainc-iit.
As it was decided this year
that the trophy go to the winner as his
actual property. Mr. Kern has one
more cup in his collection cf prizes.

east after the American Derby next
June to start in the Lawrence localiza

winter he litis developed into a magnifi

It is improbable that Highball will
be a starter In the Montgomery handi
