SKOKIE COUNTRY CLUB. Glencoo, 111.. July 10. SKOKIB GOLF CLUH, CHICAGO, July 10. Anicnca's big golf classic, the national open, with a distinguished list of entries Including the best play ers ot the United States nnd Kngland started here to-day. Promptly at 8.30 A M. tlie nrst pair teed ofT. The sun broke through the clouds shortly before starting time. A heavy rain during the night Improved the condition of the course which had been dry and fast. Henry Uolcsta, of Tampa, Fla., and George Smith of Cincinnati, wore the first of more than 100 golf stars of International fame to drive off. Jim Barnes and Chick Evans are paired in the first round as arc Alex Smith and Cyril Walker, Abe Mitvhell and Phil Gaudcn, Jock Hutchison and Mike Brady. Scoring conditions were unusually difficult. Taking the scores for the practice rounds during the last few days, a 76 n both rounds should secure a position on the cleglblc list of 24, MrYin wilt liaftla tnt Mi. nVionmlnnattln Ik propor beginning Thursday, expert be A lleved. W Freak golf was expected to play a die pan in me utie piay. ine rain this morning, however, turned the eun-baked course Into one more fit for good golf. Two days ago Abe Mitchell, carrying with Gcorgo Duncan and Willie Hunter the British hope of revenge for the ru cent debacle before the American Inva sion at Sandwich, delivered himself of a mighty swipe on the seventeenth tee that sent his ball 390 yards to the edge of the green. Yesterday Johnny Golden, the brilliant youngster from .Tuxedo, smashed his drive to within two feet of the cup on the 345-yard twelfth hole and dropped his putt In for an "eagle" 2. Both shots woull ordinarily qualify In a P. T. Barnum exhibition of golfing freaks, but the condition of the course makes such shooting common and provocative of little comment from the gallery. Well hit balls carrying 200 yards bound high Into the air when they strike the parched turf and roll sixty or seventy-five yards. Holes that normally call for two powerfully hit wooden shot! are now reached easily with a drive and a short iron and bunkers and sod traps designed to catch the unwary on their second shots now He In wait to worry this distracted golfer on his drive. The greens havo been kept In splen did condition, however, with heavy sprinklers playing on them day and night, and it Is in that Important terri tory that the championship will prob- aDiy no aeciaea u tno stars in the de 1- cato art of the short gnmo can success fully match their accuracy against the reanisn distance some of the free 110 IRE SWIM RECORDS BROKEN By WEISSMULLER 'Chicago Prodigy Makes New 100 Metre Free Style and 75 Backstroke Marks.

DAWNING FIRST IN RACE FOR CAPTAIN ISLAND CUP MAN'HASSET BAY. U I., July 10. Fourteen of the Star Class sloops start' d yesterday In the annual race for the Captain Island Cup. The course was from Minhasset Bay to and around the buoy o f the western 'end of Great Cap tain's Island and back and as the wind was northwest by north they had a long bent on tho first leg of the course.

John Black, a methodical, workaday sort of player from the Pacific Coast, turned In the best card shown In the practlco rounds yesterday when he marked up a 69 for the 18 holes. Black's score was particularly remarkable be cause of a 7 he took on the 890-yard fifth holo when he drove out of bounds a mistake that under the U. S. O. A.' rules costs both stroke and distance His outward Journey was made in 35, a "birdie" 2 on the ninth hole helping con siderably in getting the Pacific Coast man a score of only one over par for the first nine holes. Black made the Journey home In 34, two strokes under par, and played the whole round with a cool pre cision that makes him look like one of the most dangerous contenders for the title. , Jim Barnes and Jesse Guilford went out In the afternoon on a Jaunt that should be recorded by the American Explorers' Club rather than by a olf writer. ' A wind that developed at times Into almost a gale blew up during the after noon and tho American open champion gave several splendid exhibitions of the nice art of playing an approach Into a cross wind that frequently swept high flying ball yards out of their Intended course. Jim's approach shots were all crisply hit, low flying balls that cut their way through the stiff breeze and landed safely on the green. Barnes had 72 for the round and Guilford 78. George Duncan came closest to Black's score with a 71. Duncan would have scored a 70 except for a missed two foot putt on the eighteenth green after a great drive and a perfect approach with an Iron had left him almost cer tain cf a "birdie" score on the final hole. Both have promised to be on hand, however, when the tournament begins to-day. Bobby Jones had a good score for the first nine holes, mak ing the outward Journey In par fig ures. OUIMET NOT ENTERED IN SKOKIE TOURNEY BOSTON. July 10 Francis Ouimet. former national amateur golf champion, will not compete In the pluy for the na tional open title at Chicago. Conflicting rumors as to the time of Oulmet'a ar rival at iSkokle led to the announcement at his homo to-day that he would not arrive at all, as he did not Intend to play. u 11 iluiluu ii TO THE PIRATES Famous Old Shortstop Is Sought by His Old Club as Assistant. Manager. PITTSBURGH, July 10. Hans Wagner, greatest shortstop of his day, Is to become assistant manager and coach of the Pittsburgh Plratea. Bill McKeohlne, the now pilot, an nounced that the "Flying Dutch man's" services are badly needed to get tho Pirates out of the second di vision. John Wagner, until his retlremnot a few years back, was rated as one of tho most brilliant stars of our national pastime. As a batsman ho batted over the .300 mark from 1897 to 1914, or seventeen consecutive seasons, a mark that Is only rivaled by Ty Cobb. As an Infielder he ranked as one of the greatest, If not tho greatest play er that has ever held down the post- tlon of shortstop. "Hans" possessed a pair of hands that was sure death to all styles of liners and grounders, his ability as a ground-coverer was conceded to be second to none, and his whip Is still referred to by ball players as the "arm of arms." Hans played until he hahd passed the forty-year mark In years and was still holding his own with tho best of tb ynuncstere when ho retired to so into the sporting goods business In Pittsburgh. It is understood his return to the Pirates, with which club he played practically his entire major league career, is practically assured, and he Is to act In the capacity of assistant to Manager McKcchnle and aa coach of the lnfleldors. Should Wagner decldo to don the spangles once more the Pittsburgh team will be moro of an attraction than over as Hans was one of the n'ost popular playera the game has ever known. o UflMMQ nu il MAY COME BACK THE FUSSY Hi HHEY PMIL! look-hWs that?, tH-cT wSSTt: KSk,-, LooK at mc- 1 Gor A cInok Putt Man 'err outa Thay ! 1)0 v'mv if i' shoot- ? fefMW FOR A BlRbiE Tmo I I Guess I'M fUAS EvWe ffoTTA qutT L l'M STILL lrv TtJAME- feiKM CT 6At EH LOCK AT MEM!
