,, at i. |t, nack la May, on Memorial Day, metropolitan clubs of
New Votk aleae taraed in over 590,000, atagla clubs contributing 50,000 and
17,000 to the fund.
Later on, at Fourth of July tourr.aments throughout the country. over ?
f&O.OOO was raised.
Here are two lone funds from golf that netted around $175,000. In addi-!
tion to this are all the exhibition matches playod by Ouimet, Travers, Evans,
Kirkby, Guilford, Sawyer, Anderson and others - dczens of these -whieh netted
from $500 to $1,000 for ench match.
Th.-re was atill another general contribution. Money collected back in
April for prizos nt more than B thousand clubs was, almost without exception,
turned over to the Red Cross and war.
Many of these clubs turned in from $1,000 to $1,500 each. Otheri only
had $500 to otf.r. But the total ran up into important figures. Here ia a
known reeord of golf contributlons that reach the $500,000 mark, and it
iWsn't include countless minor donations. There was the only July tourna
ment among professionals and amateurs under the Golf Professionals' As
roeintion that netted over $5,000.
As for Men
But golf has done somethltig more than turn in an lmmense sum of money,
undoubtedly a greater amount than any other sport has been able to raise.
Its contribution in men has been just as complete. Here is a partial list
of lca.ling stars: Bob Gardner, Ouimet, Marston, Kerr, Carter, Ham Gardner,
liloshom, Toppinjr, and any number of others.
Since marching ar.d the proper condltion of lega and feet are a big part
af war, golf has been a fine 'raining for all tha men it has sent to service.
The averaga golfer davalape his legs and soon learm how to take good
rare of his feet. He must to eor.tinue the game.
He thlaka nothing of thirty-aix liolcs \ day, whieh means a twelve-milo
walk up and down hills and across country, with no weariness attached. All ,
in all, golf has made good in a big way, and will continue its big progtamme.
* The Same for Tennis
The same hol.ls good for tennis, a companion sport. The complete con?
tribution lhat tennii has made in thii war will be something to write about
and something to talk about when the dove fliea along the highway of the
Tennis also has given its men and Its money In vast profusion. Startlng
with M.ijor Gcorgo A.iee, president of the I.awn Tennis Association, on down 1
through the list of its ranking men, there has been a mighty contribution
te Ihe cause.
These two sports have never been considered as closely attached in their
varteea procesrrs to the game "over there." There wai no warlike setting to
their general make-up. Golf, especially, is a game of peaceful days, despitc
itl BBjatal and physical exasperatiom.
It !s .1 game of plcasunt exercisc, of friendly Intercourse, philojophieal
rsther than physical, set out in the open, well apart from the grind and grip
cf the city.
But with tl.c partial er.umcration aet forth above you have iti answer

Of Old Leagues
Ten-CIub Circuit Would Re
to Gain Support
By W. J. Macbeth
Kd Bansr, the well-known baseball
cr:t:c, of Cleveland, advocates ?i a
solution of existing major Icague
troubles a merger of the Nutional and
American circuit*. This is not exactly
an original fuggestion. It was sprung
s<.m" time ago by an Eastern writ.r.
Thara is little likclihood of any mer
if.-r, parti.iilar'.y now that the relations
batweaa the major leagues have been
atniaed almon to the breaking point.
Deaidea, Bang and his contemporary
have aaggaatad a ten-club league from
the combination. The proposition con
templates one ciub for each of the fol
lowing cities: New York, Cbicago, Boa

( u.rinnati, Cleveland, Detroit and St.
Some Wlxardry Neceaaary
A ten-club league certainly would be
an innovation. But, on aecond thought,
it might require some wizaidry to oper
atc it. Naturally, it would have to bo
composed of Kastern and Weatern
wings, and no way yet has been deviied
whereby B bunch of rive tearai can be
kept busy among themselvei at the
seme time. It takes pairi of teams to
provide games, and a schedula that
would keep certain aggregations idia
part of the time would be unwieldy in
It is quite true that baieball in eer
tain major league citiea has been at a
very low ebb for a year or io. Thia u
particularly true of the American
League chu-t in Washington. Ban
Johnson has declared repeatedly that
he would not connder any idea of quit
ting the capital city during the prei
ent war. It is a matter of patrtotism
and pride to stick by the capital.
There are certain citiei quite eepa
ble of supportmg rival major league
clubs. New York, Chicago and Boiton
have all been benetited by opposition.
St. Louis, perhaps, is too small for two
leagues; Philadelphia u a 25-cent town
But the men in the baseball busineii,
almo:t without exception, love the pub
licity of the game. There would be a
high old time adjuiting any scheme la
havo some of them drop out. The
money involved naturally would be too
much for these unsettled timei.
Nor Is there any reaion to believe
the major league bosses would care to
have a part in the deitruction of tho
unr.ual world series, whieh has beeoma
the greateit public mstitution oforgan

as if the conservative element. whieh

that each league will p!ay a schedula

against the double-header evil. He
ascribes to bargain oays the great fall

of the rules of the two major leagues,
whieh forbid double hesders between
clubs during the first series in the
various cities, these double headera
fall thickest from midsiason on, when

Charles Weeghman, president or the

vigorously. He believei tha* if double
