This every other day baseball Isn't
cUlns the best lines on the capabilities
of the varloun teami. The clubs are
where they belong on the strength they
have shown, but with fewer postpone
ments all would havo a better chance
to set Into form and the standings
ttould be a deal different from what
(hey are. In that small part of the pen
nant season already played the West
lias shown about all the pennant form
that has been fchown, with the exception
of the l.rooklyns.
Th Ineffectiveness of Xehf Is one
thine that has been keeping the Giants
Kick, and (he absence, of Frlsch won"(
iiq them any good. They have looked
like a pennant winner once or twice.
They have not looked like one as a
-tfxlv thing. The Yankees so far have
)la)ed like a team which would have
nouble getting Into the first division, to
ay nothing of winning thepennant.
The team won't win a pennant In a
thousand years unless there Is more ani
mation and speed and alertness by some
of It? members. Not to mention an
' ames. but .Mcuscl might tako notice.
His work has been lumbering and lustrc

ihey should forever after omit nny
trumpeting of divers and particularly
opposite opinions. The calling of this
rules conference meeting has gono u long
ways toward promoting ft spirit of unity
i throughout the various golfing centres of
the land, a feeling which Is hound to
Increaso In volume and strength as the
seanon goes by. However, It dis
tinctly up to the golfers who havo
charge of tho ncctlonal bodies lo rend
their bert representatives to the con
ference and primarily, of coumc, to se
cure tho opinions of the bent players.
There may be romo who will scoff at
the Idfa of having tho best plajerfl
do the deciding of the rules, but we
feel that thlM Is one tlmo when
class players hove (ho right to de
mnnd that their opinions shall jbi
heard, It means much more to me' to
have young IJobby Jones say that he
believes, that when a player on the put
ting green stymies himself he iihould he
made. to play the lull and that other
wise there should b? no tdyniles than to
have fifty average golfers, many ot
whom are only average because they
have not given their whole soul to tip
game as do the cracks, decide that nil
tmles .ire no good, and t.o why play
them. V
Theie have hen many straw votes
taken this past month among the vin
ous golfing communities, and the sum
nnd substance amounts to this: Tlie b's
majorities believe In no stymies at all.
In no tost hole for a lost ball. In no lost
hole through a player being accidentally
hit by a hill, and In the matter nt
standardisation they are evenly divided.
All these points will be taken up In de
tail at tlie meeting on April SO, and wo
trust that the delegates will find out hy
actual inquiry Just wljat changca are de-
sireo, it any, ami uoi innict upon :i
group of delegates wishing to secure
the truth a lot of personal opinions
hardly Worth the proverbial row of
Stymie a S Per Cent. Affair.
All that has been written of late has
been greatly In favor of changes of
of a drastic nature,' and wo believe
that so far as posslblo there should
tin profferod for dlsv-ussion as many
of the reasons against changes as
possible. Let us begin with the bustbear,
the doleful stymie. It can be said with
undenlcd truth that not more than ono
championship out of a wore is ever
lost because of the stymie, and that
therefore to begin with it Is a five per
cent, affair. It can bo said that wherea)
It Is impossible to cope successfully with
a ball which lies on the Up or the cup
H others can bo mastered the more j
euccefcs.ini' ma iuvtu prai;iii.e unv lane., i

leady great element of chance an un
certaintv which keeps tho Interest at

a chance that he will lay him a stymie."
says one to another In the golfing gal
lery. Add, too, the fact that or Unary
nnd fa'rly reasonable stymies are nego
tiated two times out of five, oven 'n the
biggest matches. The best golfers of
the land, nine out of every ten of whom
we have Interviewed, believe that If a
golfer stymies himself when on the put
ling green he should be made to play
the stymie, which in Itself Is a partial
point In favor of the retention ot this
much berated play ln golf.
Now for the ball covered with mud.
tn favor of no change Is the very ex
cellent opinion fathered by Findlay a.
Douglas, formerly amateur champion,
that to play a low flyln? shot no that
the ball will bounco and not stay in tlie
hole made by It on first striking the
turf Is a distinct part of the game Itself
and m!gli( well be recognised as such.
Moreover, It has long been In the prov
tnce of tho various committee who have
charge of the tournaments to mako
local rules which will provide for tho
different contingencies which may arise,
and we believe that this nuctlon of re
moving mud from a ball nnd replacing
When on the putting green or dropping
when on the fairway would never have
arisen, or at least have reached the
heights of the discussions now raging,
If the Committee men had done their
duty. Laxity In rules makes for loose
ness In rules' observance.
