Western Golf Association
May Not Hold Tourney
For Title Next Season
An Age Limit Affair May Be
Decided On Instead at
Meeting in Chicago
When the directors of the Western
OfJI Association gather for their
annual meeting at Cbluago on Jan.
1, they are likely to eug-est to the
delegates tha holding of an age limit
tournament with two claaaea. Instead
of tha usual Western amateur compe
tition. There alao may be a general
tournament for both profeasionals
No matter Just what the conditions
prove to be the association would
probably conduct the competitions
along patriotic ilnea, taking entrance
money and turning It over to relief
funda, giving the winners certificates
Instead of prlies. This would not
apply to the Junlorg who are going to
be encouraged ag much aa ever.
Reverting to the poaalblllty of an
uge limit In the Western amateur,
tho Idea Is that because of the many
leading golfers now in service, It
would not be fair to have the tourna
ment Involve a title. The suggestion
baa been made that only golfers of
forty ycara or more should ba allowed
It will be recalled that In the Weft

the leading amateurs of the Chics go
district, Charles Evans Jr. and Robert
Gardner did not take part.

of boring ln the flrat round of hi"
bout wltb Harry 'Texas ' Tate.
"Ferocious Fred" waa booed by me

ln tho first minute that he waa unwilling-

After two or three light MfcMM
a crashing right cross to 1 niton s
Jaw rocked the Mlnnesoti. plasterer
and when Tate followed this up with
a stinging left Jab Fulton gent his
opponent down with a blow ao low
that the referee offered to givo the
fight to Tate.
Billy McCarnay refused to accept
the bout on a fouL ao that Tate waa
allowed five mtnutea to recover.
They finally went Into a cllnoh and
Fulton fairly picked his opponent up
and tossed him through tha ropes,
Tate falling with a craah to the floor.
At thla the referee disqualified Ful
