Oahu did a good deal of bunching in this period and did not show to particular advantage. " s tn the third period, the two service teams clashed. Potter, back, for the red-skirts, had a handful of horse un der him, but It was he who finally straightened the ball out for the Cav alry goal. , Beard took a forward pass, and carried the ball to . position ' In front of the sticks, where he eoilarei the back, 1 leaving the way open, for Dodds to score. A pretty piece of combination work. The Cavalry fol lowed with a goal by Cook, and then Naylor took tire ball from the cen ter of tho field through the posts for another Artillery score. In the fourth chukkur the Cavalrv again faced Oahu. Castle playing bril liantly and making ; two long runs, both of which weie converted. In the fifth Oahu played the Artil lery again.

Shin gle also scored and Castle nut the ball through after the whistle blew. , The Artillery had a chance to cap ture honors for the day by leading the Cavalry two goals in the last frame, which would have put them just half a goal ahead of Oahu, but the horse soldiers caught the ball on the throw-in and carried it up field for the only goal of the period. In tho two extra periods Cullum scored once for the Cavalry, and Shin gle once and Castle twice for OahuJ A foul was called against the latter in the last period. . J Alter the game J. D.

One cannot help feeling a good deal of sympathy for our amateur champion. He went over early and practised hard and carried off the Easter , medal of the Royal St. George Club, but "outside of this he did nothing to enhance his golfing prestlge and it must have been a great disappointment to him One of the two events of the pro fessional world recently, decided was the Scottish championship, which went to D. Watt of MortonhalK bro ther of Willie Watt, w ho won .In 1912, and led all the way on this occasion until the last round, but succombed to a brilliant 71 returned by the other member of his family. However, he, Willie Watt, had the satisfaction of making a marvelous 68 over the Burgh MMirse. Norm nerwiCK, wnere me championship was held, which start! ed all his brother professionals, in rliirtine Bennie Savers, who . could scarcely believe the news when It was told him. David Watt is a left-handed player, possibly the best in the world. He is very precise and deft with all his shots, but for all that Is a long driver and also gets fine distance with irons Possibly not as brilliant as his bro ther, he has the t afer quality of stead iness with just a touch of the dour ness so characteristic of his race. In this we find another new name, though through no fault of the famous Irish professional who has held the title for five successive years. Michael Moran has now a position in England wlvich bars him from entering the championship of the land or his birth. Failing his entry one expected to see Patrick O'Hare, the great Foxrock roan, who so nearly beat Moran last year, finish first In 1915; but it was not to be, and he and his ; brother tied for second place, eight strokes behind C. W. Pope of Fort Williams, whose SOS over Royal County Down is excellent golf and shows great promise for the future. While speaking of Irish golf It is something Of a coincidence that this is the first year in which an Irish player has figured in the final of the British amateur championship, al though Irish ladies have frequently distinguished themselves in the ladies British. It Is reported that C. O. Hezlet said his only regret about los ing to Mr. Jenkins was that his sis ter, then Miss May' Hezlet, had wou the British ladies' championship on the first occasion she entered for It and he would have' liked to have re peated her performance, as. this was his first championship tournament There seems to.be little 'doubt with those who watched his play through out the amateur that he will have a tine chance to win it. 6ome other year. The year 1914 also is memorable to Irish golfers because a representative from the Emerald Isle has at last been appointed on the committee that gov erns championship regulations. The Royal Dublin Club was asked" to send a delegate to this year's and future meetings. That this is no small hon or may be realized when it Is known that since the founding of the amateur- championship, nearly 30 sears ago, only one other club, Royal St George's, has been given a representa tive on the governing committee. So it would seem that in a golfing way at least Ireland is at last receiving some recognition. A good book is an excellent mind tonic. :' . ' v j NEW ATHLETIC PARK Saturday July 18.

Globe. of trated by a study of. the methods the Renshaws. who practically revo - lutionlzed the game in 1880-90. Pace entails the high overhand ser vice play common to all ranks of overhand-service" and its attendant lob variations tennis degenerates to a mere game of shuttlecock. In this respect British players excel, for the American service is generally "slow er," but often it becomes more dead ly by reason of the formidable "cut," which causes the ball to actually swerve in the "air and to "drag" or rebound slow from the ground. This twin effect has .a distinct advantage. The play is earnestly cultivated in high quarters even by players who are opposed to the smashing volley game, since It. gives the server more time in which to follow up his serve by running into a position approx I- mately close to the net. from which he can then develop the "smashing" game. Set Is Vantage Point In both games (the. singles and doubles) all players aim, or should do so,' to get within a yard or two of the net as soon, as possible. Thence develops the smashing volley so fatal, yet so seldom seen at other than clas sical events. The player should seek to get comparatively close to the net, whether . serving or receiving the serve, the object in all cases being to volley before the gravitational pull oh the ball becomes apparent TJiat this is the correct and only play can be adjudged from the fact that if . the rest happens beyond a stroke or two. most players, even Inferior ones (they are acting unconsciously) will be found to have drawn Into the net At!? cPPortun"Jr, meeting the great least this Is mostlv so. An fTamfna. tion of players' positions In eight games out of ten will clearly bear out this point. It Is one well worthy of study.' For some the service lines possess a -fatal attraction. ' ,,yet the; volley, pure and simple., is only the prelude to still deadlier play. Rapid and low volleying, clearing the net maybe by but an Inch or two, can always be met by players who take the trouble to practice the art It Is when the volleying becomes varied by the attempt on the part of one player to place the ball out of reach of the other that the science of it all be comes apparent This "lobbing," as It is termed, calls for the greatest skill and judgment r It is the high overhand play, combined with the "lift" or i "top." placing the ball be hind one's adversary and well at the back of the court, which Is so discon certing to follow, and has given many a pretty coup de grace to an other wise evenly divided bout of volleying. Racket Often Betrays a Lol" Good "lobbing" is difficult at leas a it would appear so from the attempts one often sees in the great majority of. games. Unless judgment' drawn to a fine .art accompanies the swing of the , racket, and the eye never re moved from the ball even for the thousandth part of a second, the lob" will send the ball out of court. or else just drop it short enough to permit the opposing player to kill it by playing a smashing volley. It is essential that the racket does not be tray the Intention to play a "lob." This defeats the whole, object, and permits the opponent to correct his position that is, should it prove or be, thought necessary. In all play the primal object should be to serve and return , the serve so as to permit of gaining a favorable position within a yard or so of the net and to so regulate pace as to drive one's adversary into a : least I favorable one that is away from the net toward the base line; and from that initial advantage the successful player can. given other things equal, severely punish his opponent by sud denly reverting to the smashing vol ley which so invariably wins. Got Position. Then Snnsli' The smash stroke is reallv essen tial to win. The game thus resolves itself into three parts: 1. The en deavor on the part of one player to secure the more favorable positioa. 2 The following up with the smash volley. 3. The success of the smash stroke or a win by means of a ..well directed and judiciously placed "lob." A good player Invariably stakes hi chance overhead. Yet. few indeed can hope to win without resorting ?.t times to eood overhead play. The hurtling, blustering masterful smash stroke is similarly played to the over head, with the exception, however. that the position from which it is played has no definitely fixed dis tance from tee net. it requires in stinctive Judgment and absolute mathematical precision, and ; its play i always in direct rclatidn to the lde lines and less proportionately to the net The eye must never be removed from' the ball otherwise the player loses that Instantaneous perception of speed and the correlative quality of judgment .so essential for a return smash at greater pace which, - with proper skill, places the ball outside the reach of his opponent's racket My concluding advice is to aim at forcing your adversary to the back of the court, which can always . be done -; by a few ' Judiciously t placed balls either near, the side line or the R.

MURRAY IS .j LATEST MARVEL1 OF THE COURTS k, i.maiey Murray or Stanford Lnt- ltversity, the latest Cain'ornia tenniJ to 'ern court of.clean of championships, is a member iOf a wonderful family of athletes.

He has done the SSu yarUs in 1 minute 55 1m seconds, a ltd is one of the best distance men Stanford has produced. It was considered a great handicap to the Cardinal this year that he was Ineligible to compete. Fred Murray, a brother, a year younger, is even more speedy on the track. At the last intercollegiate meet this April he won the 120-yard hurdles In 15 2-5 secondi. winning for Sanlord. lie covered the 220-yard hurdle in 24 minutes and 45 seconds, winning again for his var sity, and took the third lap in the re lay race,. and It was his running that decided the event in favor of Stan ford. This would have been enough for most champions, but Murray took a whirl at the shotput and got third. Fred Murray Is only a moderate ten nis player, so he does little of it. the Murrays being marvelous, and not moderate, in the things they do. ..There is still a third brother who has been hiding his light under a bushel at ; Haverford College, in the East lie has only so far played for his college at football. He is six feet seven and is only IS. He Is tak ing to tennis and shows symptoms of being a first-class performer when he returns to California. Next year he goes to Stanford, and. will then have Payers or mis aiaie. R. Lindley Murray is bailed as a coming champion In the East, but it is probably too early to. decide whe ther he Is to be in the first flight or just an A class player. . "Among the men' wjq meet Jiirnqn thecqiiqs in San'FrancIsco he'is not considered aa equal to McLoughlin, Strachan or Johnson, nor is he expected to ever be. He is supposed to lack that In--definable, but Indispensible quali, "class," that spells world's champion ships. It was his sensational defeat of John Strachan In the State cham pionship at Claremont Club In 1912 that first attracted general attention to him. He eventually lost In the final to Ella Fottrell. Last year Mur ray played very' finely in both the Lay counties and State championships. Ubut waa eliminated in the finals In each case by Strachat and Johnson. -Perhaps there is a disposition to underrate Murray's game, which is partly due to hi3 own modesty. Very often he has played with exceptional success and the result, has been. re-, garded as a fluke. The man who can "fluke" acros3 a continent, beating chare plcns as he goes, is certainly going some. At any .rate, he has a hard service, covers an immense amount of territory, and is essential ly what is termed a "wonderful get ter." He is strong at the net, utilis ing to the last inch his great reach, and is an indomitable fighter. Also, his jolly temperament has made him without a question of a doubt cne of the most popular of the leading play ers now on California courts. Perhaps the critics will have to raise him a rung or two In their es timation when he returns from the East His defeat of Alexander, Hall and Behr In one day at the Sleepy Hollow tournament was one of the finest "flukes' put over for many a long day. After defeating Alexander In straight sets, Murray met Behr and lost the first set 6-4. It was. then considered all over. But the young Stanford man served and drove with such terrific speed that his opponent had not a look in and was beaten 6-2, 6-2. : - The Murrays are sons of Professor Murray, the head of the Greek depart ment at Stanford. The boys are also successful students, and their athletic achievements do not Interfere with their work; in fact, the "Marrelour Murrays" just about hits the mark.
