For some months past there have Iwen rumors to the effect that not only Duncan but Vardon. llrald nnd Kay. the new open champion of reat Itrltaln, mlsht tour this country In lS13. There Is no chance. however, accordltiB to a man In the trade who arrived the other day from a trip abroad, of the three, last named pros comltiK over. Duncan stated that he would surely b In America nculn, though not before the fall, when he plans to make a short tour. On his first visit to this country Duncan came over with ol. GeorKo Harvey, and It was only u few hours after leaving the steamer that the Hanger Illll profes sional drove his first hall on American soil. That was at Deal. Itefore return ing home Duncan took part In some twenty exhibition matches, plulnB over the best courses In the United States, These Included Myopia and the National Golf I1nks of America, lie won a ma jority of Ids matches and on several oc- cas otis established new records.

Home, formerly JIIss Hessle Antliony. at her home, near Keswick, Va., the lino of former women's national champions was broken. Miss Anthony was the national title holder In 1803. when the tournament was held nt 'Wheaton. and was for six 5 ears the continual holder of the Western championship. Miss Anthony was nn enthtiltlastle golfer and her rise to fame was rapid, Sh urst sprung Into prominence In l'JOI. when she .-nine on from the West to compete In tho national championship at Hrookllnc. Mass. She succeeded In getting Into tho match play division and advanced In the timt round at tho ex pense of Miss K.

The following ear. after winning the first championship of the Western Oolf Association, she took part In the na tional tournament nt Wheaton and handily defeated Mrs. Koruild II. narlow of Merlon, present holder of the Kastern and Philadelphia women's titles; Mrs. Caleb F.

Bhe was born In Chi cago and was married In Pittsburg eight years ago, Approximately sixty championships of. one kind or other, and all of thorn Im portant, were decided In the United States during the J 91 2 golf season. This estimate Is exclusive of the national amateur cham pionship and hundreds of !o:.H titles throughout the country. In the middle At lantic and New Kngland States there were perhaps forty titular competitions run off, outside the club events. It Is a notlceablo fact that while promi nent players have broken all kinds of course rocords, there are many Instances where they have won only one title, Hueh Is tho ease of Charles W, Evans, Jr.. runnerup to Jerome D. Travers In the national ohamplonshlp this year, who nn nexed the Western amateur title only after a strugglo with tVarren K. Wood that went tn the thirty-sixth green. Harry G. Iegg of Mlnnekahdn. however, wo.s more successful, for although only one record Is given hltn he won both the Trans-Mlsslsstppi and Minnesota cham pionships. Among the Eastern contingent, Tom Mc Namara was tho greatest recordbreaker among the professionals, hanging up figures on four courses, but he was able to gather In only ono title, tho metropoli tan open at Apawatnls. sufficiently Im portant to make up for others.

The Man In the Crowd has heard many criticisms to the effect that the commission should have gono further lit this respect It Is argued thnt In addition to rnlshig tho limits In the feather and light weight classes to 12.1 und 135 pounds respectively, the commission should have Increased the weltei weight limit to 11K and the middleweight limit tn 150 pouiels to conform with tho weight ecaleH prevail ing In Kngland and France. It Is ulso asserted that the commission should have abolished ringside, weighing, which Is be lieved to be a hardship, also u means of taking an unfair advantagr. The com mission might have passed a rule empow ering referees to disqualify contestants guilty of delivering foul blows, while, It Is also a prevalent opinion that the boxing solons would have made it move In the right direction bv rescinding tho rule which makes decisions In professional bouts Impossible.

Thero seems to be a disposition on the part of the registration committee of tho Metro politan Association of the A. A. V. to maintain ns strict a secrecy as possible In regard to the matters that come liefornthecommlttee for Investigation nnd decision. When first ap pointed the members of tho committee were fairly frank as to their doings and sel. about, their work In such an earnest manner that a clearing up of t he ul liletic sit nation scorned probable. .Meetings wero held In the open and Ihe publicity given to the proceedings aided considerably .in pro ducing free evidence for the comtnltteo to act on In their probing Into the abuses that It Is admitted on all sides have crept or rather galloped Into amateur athletics. Tho M-andat attaching to tho Tipperary games was handled welt ami the prompt action of the committee in suspending tho chief ofl'entler was generally approved and Mistalned on appeal by a representative) special committee of the hoard of managers of the association. Then came onotber liiiportonl case which Involved charges of olterlnc appearance money to prominent amateurs. Almost immediately the policy of secrecy was instituted and the one casu that promUcd to lead to morn thorough results than any other was finally ehelveil after a puerile attempt to gel at the fac ts. As an excuse tor holding tho meetings In private the committee I ell back on the assertion that misleading statements went mado in the newspapers ns to the doings at the meetings. Ho long as tho meetings were held In public this was Impossible without the committee being able to refuto any false statements by il minutes 011111 the evidence of the impartial athletes present, under the open court system. At least the Interested parties wero able to learn the facts for themselves by attending the meetings and thus keep acquainted with the efforts thnt presumably are being made to purify athletics. The situation Is a serious ope nnd many followers of athletics arc wondering what is going to be the result of the new policy that so lar has not produced any good results. Leaving the newspapers that supply the newB lor the thousands of sup porters of athletics out of the question, and taking Ihe committee solely In its responsibility to the Metropolitan Asso ciation, by which it was appointed, how does tho system work out? Tho registration committee it appointed for one year not as an autocratic body but simply ns the representative of tin; association so that cases requiring adju dication may be handled In a es, cumber some manner than if the whole hoard of managers were called together each mouth or when occasion required to act 011 cases. KrcIi club In the nodatlon has a right to knowledge of what is being done through out the year without waiting until the next annual meeting tor n report covering the doings of the whole year. This could be arranged by a monthly report to the board, but no such reports arc made nnd the fact Is that the newspapers aro nml have been the only means of acquainting Ihe clubs and the registered athletes with the doings of the committee that practically regulates the athletics of the district. That this is so is shown by the practice of sending to the papers nol Iflcation of niuct. ings that are not sanctioned accompanied with a warning to athletes not to compete. The qtinstlonis.thetefore. Are the clubaj to Im made acquainted with only such cases ns the committee desires to be mnile public or are they to be tally Informed oftheproc ress In eliminating professionalism, which la a vital one to-day? It is idle longer to denv that there is a good deal to be done m this respect, Wherever athletes gather the talk runs on the difllculty of getting a certain class of amateurs to compete in games without a substantial reward Nearly nil express a wish to abolish this practice, so that instead of paying one or two men favored with athletic ability and devoid of conscience the clubs may spend the same amount of money in providing good prizes for tho genuine amateurs that compote for the sport alone. The recent disclosures In regard to crime In the city show that the only way to get ut the truth In any matter that a certain fe-v nie desirous of covering up is by publicity. 1'tiless the registration committee cun quickly produce some results by Its policy of secrecv It mav be taken for granted lint there will be a demand from the clubs in forested for an accounting of their steward ship. With the indoor season in full swing nM month the condltionsof competition in man; of the armories need looking into. Una of these is the frequent absence of a curb lo mark the outline of tho circular track James K, Sullivan, the referee at the now- boya' games, called attention lo this and pointed out the difficulty of a refeiee's duties uudor theso conditions. There was no curb laid in the Sixty-ninth Itegiment Armory nnd only a thin chalk line marked where or where not the runners should go. "What canonedoVsnld.Mr. Sullivan. "Some of these men cannot see that chalk murk at the speed at which they are travelling, nnd as the promoters are at fault I do nol feel like disqualifying men when they gain ground by stepping Inside." At the same games the absence of the curb led to drastic action lu (he bicycle race. There a competitor was outpaced and In the last lap was behind Ihe leadnr. lie took a chance nnd made a short cut deliberately across the corner mo that he gained enough to finish first. The ucllnn apparently was deliberate and he was dis qualified and placed third Instead of first. Mr. Sullivan suggests that no games should be sanctioned by tho reslMiatlon cqmmlttee until that, body is satisfied that Ihe armory or other building in which they are to be held Is properly equipped for the different events on the programme. If would not be necessary for the promoters of each set or games tn buy an outfit, for if It became known that the proper para phernalia would be Insisted 011 It could be bought by one promoter und rented out to others. Prank Kaufman of the National A. is one amateur imbued with the proper spirit. Instead of trying to conceal his form so that he may hoodwink the handl cspper, he has a complaint to make becaila he wan shut out of a scratch competition in which he would have to meet high class company on even terms. In a letter to Thf. Sim Kaufman says that his entry for the .100 yard special race at the newsboys' games was rejected because he was not good enough tn run against sneh men nn Rosenberger. Meyers. Kller or Pepls. IU calls attention to the fact that theso men have yet 40 win a 300 yard title and that therefore they are in the same class as him self. Kaufman has run noo yards outdoor from an eight yard handicap In 32 2-5 sec onds, and at Elizabeth two weeks ago ha won a 3011 yard run from scratch. Kauf man certainly should be allowed to test his peed, but perhaps there li an athletlo trust In existence. tlayca'a Boys Want Another Trophy. Flushed with the success of the St. Bartholomew A.
