Clever Ride by Turner
Lands Opening Feature
Picturesque Old Gelding Shows Way to Mad Hatter,
Boniface and Audacious at Yonkers; Favorites
j Practically Made Sweep of Six-Race Program
ByW. J. Macbeth
J. E. Widener's picturesque old gelding, Naturalist, which was the
best handicap horse in training mort of last year, and which had shown
?onusual consistency in his seven previous starts in'the East this season
finally came back into his own with all four feet at the Empire City track
yesterday afternoon.
Naturalist, cleverly ridden by Jockey Clarence Turner, who seems
to have finally mastered all those idiosyncrasies of this temperamental
gelding just as Fairbrother had them mastered till one day last fall when
his mount quit cold to Hannibal in a two-horse raes?Naturalist, let us
whisper, won the Empire City Handicap at a mile and an eighth, the fea?
ture race of the opening day of the Yonkers meetin??
Katuralist not only beat a high class?
field, including Mad Hatter, Boniface
and Audacious, which finished behind
him in the order named, but did it well
within himself, after making every
post a winning one. The big disap?
pointment of this race was the favorite,
M. L. Schwartz's Audacious, which
finished absolutely last.
It is possible that the track had most
everybody fooled. Audacious likes a
?papier-macho course, and though the
footing appeared fast it was scarcely
?o, if time means anything. Judging
from average time, the course was a
couple of seconds off, which may ac?
count for Naturalist's exceptional ef?
fort, as he is at his best in heavy
Favorite Always Ont ran
However that may be, Naturalist had
the foot tc take the track before the
first turn, and down the backstretch he
opened up a gap of half a dozen
lengths. Audacious, on the other hand,
was always outran. It looked for a
time as if the game Boniface might be
?ble to run down Naturalist, as the
Ross horse was closer to the pace than
usual in the early stages, but Boniface
seemed to have too heavy a package
Mad Hatter might have done the
trick with a more advantageous start,
but this one also took too much out of
himself trying to overcome the long
lead of Naturalist. Though the Wid
ener gelding tired toward the end, he
had won the race in the first three
Naturalist will bear watching from
now on. It is true he was in yesterday
with the proverbial feather on his
back; but it is equally true he has
raced very consistently, throughout the
entir? year. In eight starts around
the New York track this year, and
against the very best horses of the
older divisions, Naturalist has never
finished outside the money. He has
won his last two starts, has been
second once and third five times.
Form players had a Roman holiday
at this opening of the Empire City
meeting, which was one of the most
generously patronized in history of the
track. By a stretch of the imagination
one might say that favorites swept the
card. Naturalist was as strongly sup?
ported as either Boniface or Audacious,
despite the vital statistics of the form
chart. It was practically 2V? to 1 and
take your pick among the three most
of the way. In all other five races
pronounced favorites rolled home in
front Rolled is used advisedly, for
none of the finishes was close.
Leonardo II "Hot Tip"
Perhaps the most popular victory of
the afternoon was that of J. W. Mc
?Clelland's Leonardo II. Leonardo, a
two-year-old brown colt which re?
sembles Eternal, his half brother
1.they are both the get of Sweep) won
the last race at five furlongs. Leo?
nardo was one of the livesfe tips of the
Mason. The dockers reported that he
had' twice sprinted half miles under
48 in his work-outs and one trial gave
him a minute flat for five furlongs.
Everybody about the race track, it
seemed, was anxious to speculate on
Leonardo II's chance the moment the
odds were posted, and Tie was quickly
taken from 2 to 1 to 1 to 2. No horse
this season got a stronger play unless
perhaps it was Dough Girl, the even?
ing before, in the closing race of the
Aaueduct meeting.
The dockers knew what they were
talking about, all right. No greater
cinch ever want to the post. Schutt
inger got the colt off well and in a
few bounds from outside position he
was a couple of lengths in front.
Schuttinjger then tc?ok the track, and
though he had his steed under triple
wraps all the way and was pulled to a
canter through the last sixteenth,
Leonardo II beat such, a good colt as
Guv'nor by ten lengths at the end.
He simply raced Guv'nor and all the
rest of them dizzy and still cakewalked
home quite as easily as the great
Inchcape spreadeagled hi? field In the
Tremont Stakes at Aqueduct Saturday
Fast Time by Winner
Leonardo II galloped the five far
longs in the? wonderful time of one
minute over a track that seemed a
couple of seconds slow. There are
those who believe Inchchapo will have
his work cut out the first time he meets
Leonardo II at Saratoga.
Schuttinger, by the way, won quite
as easily with Jim Daisy, another two
year-o!d, in the first race at five and
a half furlongs.
The only winner to come from
behind was AVar Smoke in the fifth
race at a mile? and seventy yards.
Sam Hildreth, who recently pur?
chased Inchcape for $150,000 from J. H.
Rosseter, of California, made an un?
successful attempt to purchase Inch
frpe's sire, Friar Rock, from the same
Iprseman, hut was informed the etal
Son was not for sale at any price. ?

Man ?* War to Race
John P. Grier Again
W/THILE the fact hat) not been an?
nounced officially as yet, it
was learned last night on apparent?
ly reliable authority that Man o*
War and John P. Grier will renew
their feud at the Empire City track
Saturday afternoon.
These two wonderful three-yoar
I old colts, which made turf history
in the Dwycr at Aqueduct Saturday
last, are both eligible ior the Em?
pire City Derby. This is a condi?
tion race in which Man o* War will
?carry 130 pounds, and will concede
to John P. Grier, eighteen pounds,
as he did in the Dwyer. Both colts
?came out of their terrific duel in
perfect shape.
Miss Bleibtrey
Sets New Record
In 300-Meter Swim
! Breaking two world's swimming
I records within a week is the enviable
' accomplishment of Ethelda Bleibtrey,
! New York's star woman swimmer. Yes
j terday afternoon, at the Manhattan
! Beach Bath in the final Olympic try- '
| outs for women, Miss Bleibtrey shat
; tered the world's mark of 4 minutes
I 52 seconds for the 300-meter swim,
i made by Fannie Durack, of Australia,
! at Stockholm in 1912. Miss Bleibtrey's
! time was 4 minutes 34 1-5 seconds.
The new record was made under I
: adverse conditions, a strong wind and
]. choppy waters prevailing. The cham- ?
I pion's closest rival was Miss Eleanor I
. Uhle, who finished six vards behind >
? the winner. Miss Uhle was closely !
pressed by Miss Frances Cowells, of i
: Philadelphia.
Trailing those mentioned were J
? Frances Woodbridge, Charlotte Boyle '
j and Helen Moses, of Honolulu, who
I finished in the ortier named. Miss ?
| Boyle's poor showing was due to an j
j injury she received in making a false ;
In winning her heat Miss Bleibtrey
I also bettered the previous mark, h??r
? time being 4 minutes 40 1-5 seconds.
In the high diving event three New
j York mermaids led the field of picked
! divers from all parts of the United
I States. Helen Meany won this event,
j beating out little Miss Eileen Riggin,
i who finished second.

And Jones Win
Two Matches
Medallist Scores Twice by
6 and 5 in Title Tour?
ney; Adair Eliminated
From a Special Correspondent
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jyly 14.?Bobby
Jones, the sensational young player
from Atlanta, came through victori?
ously in his first and second round
matches to-day in the amateur, cham?
pionship tournament of the Western
Golf Association. The tyro won the
qualifying medal yesterday with a to?
tal of 139 for the thirty-six holes. An?
other double winner was Charles
("Chick") Evans, of Chicago, the for?
mer nation?*? open and amateur cham?
Jones won both his matches in easy
manner. In the first round he brushed
aside Frank Crager, of Helena, Ark., by
6 up and 5 to play, while in the second
round the brilliant Southerner elimi?
nated George McConnell, of Chicago, 2
up. Although the final score indicates
a close match, Jones had matters in
hand from the Btart and eased up
toward the close.
Evans also came through by fairly
wide margins. He first put out R. L.
Hickey, of Atlanta, by 4 and 3, and in
the second round he polished off Baxter
Sparks, c/f Terre Haute, 3 and 2.
The surprise of the day was fur?
nished early, when Perry Adair, of At?
lanta, a teammate of Jones, was de?
feated by Henry WenzleT, of Memphis.
The score was 2 and 1. Wanzler made
the round in 75. Tom Prescott, an?
other Atlantan, was eliminated at the
start, losing to Hickey, 1 down. Hickey
later fell before Evans.
Still another upset was the defeat
of Richard ,Boeckenkamp, runnor-up to
Harry Legg for the championship last
year, by Burt Wilbur, of Indianapolis.
The score was 4 and 2. *R. W. Thomp?
son, of New York, took his first round
match from C. 0. Pfeil, Memphis, 6 and
4. Clarence Wolff, the St. Louis star,
had an easy time defeatinjg T. W.
Palmer, Indianapolis, 6 and 5.

MPro9' Golfeis Have Inning
T?-day on Staten Island
- ' !?????? ^
Eligible? for Tourney at Chi?
cago To Be Decided at Fox
Hills and Richmond Club
By Ray McCarthy
To-day the professional golfers of
the metropolitan district will have
their inning, or at least some of
them will. A batch of 64?including
virtually every "pro" in this section
will be on hand to make the attempt
to qualify for the National Profes?
sional Golfers Association meet, which
will be held at Chicago August 16-20.
New York's quota of the thirty-two
who will compete in this tourney is
twelve, so that only one-fifth of those
who play to-day will be eligible for
the Chicago test. All of which which
means competition of the keenest sort.
Play to-day will be held over the
Fox Hills and Richmond County
Country Club courses. Half of the
field will play at Fox Hills, while the
other is playing at Richmond County
in the morning. In the afternoon con?
ditions will be reversed.
Such stars as Tom Kerrigan and
Tom McNamara of the Siwanoy club,
George Fotheringham of Richmond
County, Arthur Reid of Ardsley, Clar?
ence Hackney of Atlantic City, Tom
Boyd of Fox Hills, Archie Sanderson
of Sleepy Hollow, Cyril Walker of
Englewood, and others will be on
hand when play . starts at 9:30.
The second annual competition for
the Victory Cup, a tournament which
was started last year and which was
one of the most popular and most suc?
cessful ever held in this vicinity, will
start to-day over the course of the
Wykagyl Club at New Rochelle. Last
year the tourney was held at Siwanoy,
with a record field participating. Ned
Sawyer, who won tho Metropolitan title
a short time ago, is the present title
holder, he having defeated Jess Sweet
ser in the final match last season.
Sawyer will be present agin this
year to defend his laurels, as will
Sweetser, who won the intercollegiate
meet last month, and who has been
playing splendidly all spring. John
Anderson, J. S. Worthington, winner of
the Weetchester meet in May; G. L.
Conley, Al Mondes, H. L. Phillips, Ed?
die Van Vleck, Reggie Lewis and A. E,
Ranney, of Greenwich; Gardiner
White, of Nassau, and Frank Dyer, of
Upper Montclair, are among those who
will make a bid for.this honor this

Two Brothers
.Win Amateur
Olympic Bouts
Zivics, of Pittsburgh, Show
Class in Try-outs at the
69 th Regiment Armory
By Jack Masters
Jack Zivic and his brother. Peter, of
the Willow A. C, Pittsburgh, won
their bouts in decisive style last night
at the 69th Regiment Armory, where
the finals of the Olympic boxing
matches were held.
These two boys, particularly, Jack,
arc about the classiest little amateurs
who have performed in the East in
quite a while.
In the 12G-pound class Jack faced a
tough customer in Edmond Riley, a
negro of this city, competing unat?
tached. Riley demonstrated last night
when he won in the eliminations that
he can take a lot of punishment, and
that is just what he did last night.
Zivic held him off with a straight left
and with his right reduced the colored
boy's face to a mass of blood and
bruises, but Riley took it gamely and
lasted out the three rounds.
Peter Zivic won easily from Private
John Lessar, United States Army.
Peter, like his brother Jack, is a boxer
and a scientific one, but when called
upon to mix it up with the slugging
soldier, the Pittsburgh youth was equal
to the occasion.
The biggest surpriso of the evening
came when Hilly Levine, New York,
118-pound champion, was defeated by
Stephen Gustin, of Boston. Levine
took the niftiest lacing of his career
from the' Bostonian. Gustin used a
straight left effectively and continually
threw the local boy off hia. balance,
only to put over the right before he
Sam Mossberg, Pastime A. C, won
his bout from Sergeant E. J. Fowler,
United States Army, but the verdict of
the judges almost brought the bouts to
an end. The crowd of about 2,000.people
booed and hissed for seven minutes
following the announcement.
Mossberg became unpopular with the
crowd when he was given the decision
Monday night in his first fight. Many
of the spectators thought he was beaten
on that occasion and apparently, they
held the same conviction last night.
The results:
112-pound class?Peter Zlvle, Pitts?

Other favorites who came through toi
the fifth round brackets yesterday were
Dr. William Rosenbaum, Frederick C.
Anderson, Anton von Bernuth, Paul
Martin and Manfred Goldman. There
were ten players left in the singles
when the first dash of rain and the
first touch of darkness forced all the
merry hands to do a "Charley Chaplin"
| to the clubhouse, where tho table was
[groaning under an inhuman burden.
Several of those defeated on the courts
j proved they were all-round athletes by
the skill with which they manipulated
the table tools.
Frankie P. Adams reached the final
round in this contest, the first time he
has ever reached so far out. He will
meet Dr. William Rosenbaum this af?
ternoon in the challenge round and
close followers of the knife and fork
sport predicted last night that Adams
will win, after a grueling battle, and
have his name engraved on the new
silver "Challenge Soup Tureen."
Start Play in Doubles
Twenty-six pairs started in the
men's doubles late in the afternoon,
but only five matches could be run off
before quitting time. The singles will
be brought into the semi-final round
to-day, and the doubles pushed into
tho round before the semi-final, pro?
vided the rain holds off.
It was expected that Kvnaston would
play Botsford very close, perhaps to a
three-set match, but the hi_h wind
that swept in gusts from the ocean
seemed to throw the Long Island nuan
completely off his stroke. Kynaston
hits the ball rather higher than the
average, with the result that the wind
played all kinsd of pranks with it, and
he was making glaring errors all
through tho match.
Botsford gave a masterly exhibition
of good tennis under difficulties. He
was "stroking" with all hi3 customary
pace, but kept the ball low, both on
ground strokes and when volleying, and
even his smashes generally were good
for aces. Botsford won eight games ir
a row before Kynaston was able tc
drag one out of the wreckage, and ther
the winner proceeded to run off th?
next four for the set and match,
Kynaston was forced to keep in th<
back of the court almost all the time
with Botsford closing in and smother
ing returns with sharp overhanti vol
?eying that continually found opening;
in the opposite court. The wind neve
seemed to bother the former Columbii
star and after eliminating Kynaston
he started his fifth round with Antoi
von Bermuth, taking the first set a
6?2, and holding a lead of 2?0 in th?
second, when forced to stop because o
rain and darkness. All winners in th
fifth round matches to-d?y go into th
semi-final brackets.
From Links to Courts
Dr. Rosenbaum was yanked off th
adjoining golf links, where he wa
practicing "back-spin" machie ap
proaches to the green, long enough t
play a fourth round match agains
Harry Sachs, after the latter had bee;
fished out of Woodmere Creek, wher
he was giving imitations of Annett
Kellermann. Rosenbaum won by
score of 6?2, 6?3, his powerful fore
hand drives and his smashing of hig
balls, with his now famous "Bacard
smash," being quite a bit tod much fo
Paul Martin caused somewhat of
surprise by defeating W. J. Gallon, o
the West Side Tennis Club, in a wel
played three-set match, the score
going at 6?3, 4?6, 6?1. Martin ha
the virtue of steadiness and strok
control, while Gallon was all too ir
clined to sacrifice safety to terrifi
hitting, and Martin tempted him man
times on overhead shots. Defeate?

in the creek.

Willard Botsford, of New York, continued to shine yesterday in the
annual men's open lawn tennis tournament on the clay courts of the
Woodmere Club, at Woodmere, L. I. Playing against Percy L. Kynaston,
Old Dominion champion, in the fourth round of the singles, he crushed
his steady-going opponent under a 6?0, 6?1 score. Botsford is now in

Murray Is Victor
In Three Contests
On Chicago Courts
From a Special Correspondent
CHICAGO, July 14.?The feature of
the day's play in the national clay
court championships in progress at the
South Side Tennis Club was the match
between R. Lindley Murray, former na
? tional champion, and Walter West
I brook, Michigan champion and former
captain of the University of Michigan
tennis team.
Murray defeated the ex-collegian
without being extended. Westbrook
won but 3 points in the first five games
played, and but 10 points in the first
set. The score, 6?1, 6?2, indicated
the relative ability of the piayers. The
point score in the first set was 25 to
10 in Murray's favor, and in the second
26 to 18, a total of 51 points to 28.
Murray worked his way through
three matches during the day and re?
ceived one default, which places him in
the sixth round. He will not play to?
morrow, but will be called upon to face
j the winner of the Joe Armstrong-Alex
| Squair match on the following day.
Ralph Burdick, of Chicago, defeated
Kenneth Simmons, of Cleveland, with?
out the loss of a game. Following this
victory Burdica defeated Haase, of St.
Louis, 6?2, 6?2. Walter T. Heyes, of
Chicago, had a hard battle to defeat
Edmund Levy, of the University of
California. Vincent Richards, of New
York, easily beat a local player, Brad?
ley Guyton.

TOLEDO, July 14.?A heavy rain
