GOLF HAS BEEN A
POPULAR GAME IN

Exact Date of Its Establish

Settled, as Many Writers
Golf In the United States Is said to date
from the establishment of the St. An
drews Golf Club, nt Yonkers, N. Y., Ill
JJSS. South C'arollnans, however, claim
that It was played In their Stnte ft ecu

"Thero Is recently erected that pleasing
and genteel amusement the golf batm."'
' While Princeton and Harvard appear to
have the pick of the Uun tonnli players,
the University of Pennsj Ivunla tins been
getting quite n few sterling golfers of
late and more are going to Penn.
Meredith M. Jack, the Episcopal Acad
emy youth, will Join the coterie of golf
stars now at Pennsylvania next fall.
Perhaps It Is Just as well that big
tournaments are ovet and only a few
club championship matches remain to bu
played In this section With the schools
open the supply of golf caddies Is limited
If It Is not. It should be, for it would be
a very selfish golfer who would retain
the services of a youngster who should
be In his classroom preparing for more
important duties In life.
George C. Thomas, Jr., playing recently
at the Huntingdon Valley Country Club,
might have had a good score had he not
missed a half dozen or & putts. As It
was he came In with a 77.
Some golfer with lots of time on his
Tiands has compiled a choi-'e store for

Playing In the dark Is decidedly costly
and this was amply proved In th tourna
ment held at the Merlon Cricket Club on
the day of the annual dinner of the Golf
Association of Philadelphia. A foursome
playing over the west course a dav or
so after found the course strewn with
halls. Ono of the playt-rs l03t his own
ball In a gully on the fifth hole, and while
searching for It found four others, none
of which had a distinguishing mark on
it. Others were even found m the falr
way. London Golfing contains this curious In-
Eiance oi a ireaK snot it was played
by Bobby Andrew in his amateur days.
"His partner got rather off the line at
ono hole, and, on coming up to the ball,
the Scottish Internationalist was some--what
surprised to discover that It had
.chosen to come to rest on the top of a
large barrel, standing by the side of some
'farm buildings. The difficulty of the shot,
of course, was not so much the nature
of tho He an the peculiarities of th
stance, which Involved placing the feet
bo near the ball as to leave little room
"for the swinging of the club. However,
Xtobert Andrew clambered up onto tho
barrel and had a 'half for his side."

Gridiron Gleanings From Leading Colleges
B7 EDWARD R. BTJSHNELL
Unless they get Into action this after
"noon, tho I'ennaylavnia football team will
have to go Into the game against the
Indians on Saturday without the back
field having had an opportunity to scrim
mage together once this week. All sea
son the weakness of the Quaker attack
-has ben a lack of sustained rushing
power. That is something which can be
secured only through perfect co-operation
among the backs. But co-operation Isn't
possible when the men can't play to
gether. Quarterback Merrill and Half
back Matthews are the only members of
.the tlrst-strlns baokdeld who have been
in the scrimmage at the same time any
day tills week, both Vreeland and Tuck r
being kept on the side lines nursing
. No one can be blamed for thla condi
tion of affairs. The men have been auf
fering from a variety of hurts, and ob
viously couldn't work to advantage under
such conditions. Good physical condition
Is absolutely imperative, and the only
way to get injured men In shape Is to
.rest them. But all this delays the per
fection of the attack, and Pennslvanla's
offense has certainly been slow coming
to Itself thla fall. It meanu that if
the Indians have a stiff defense and thulr

Because it differs so radically from the
brand of football that hi3 baan soen at
Yale In recent years they are beginning
to call the progressive game played at
Ne-w- Haven this fall "Hinkey football."
Yale men are deeply impressed with Hin-
' key's skill, and openly predict that the
Blue will surprise the college world be
fore the season ends. Although Wash

LEAGUE MEETS AND
Five Clubs Join to Promote
Spirit of Fellowship Along
Racing and Entertainment
A new yachting association on the
Delaware Itiver, which will rival the
Delaware Itiver Yacht Racing Associa
tion, has been formed under the title of
the Delaware Hlver Yachtsmen's League,
mado up of five clubs, ex-members of the
parent organization. At a meeting held
In the home of Frederick von Neldn, arti
cles of the new association were drawn
up, officers elected and a general plan
for the season arranged. It was re
ported at the meeting that probably five
or more clubs will Join the new league,
which has for Its program a better spirit
of fellowship, both along racing and en
ihe clubs that so far make up the or
ganization aie the Wlsslnomlng Yacht
Club, of Wlsslnoming. Pa : tho Trnton
Yachi Club, of Trenton; the Columbia
Yacht Club, of Brtdeshurg, Pa.; the Far

and the Camden Yacht Club, situated at
the toot of 2d btreet, Camden. It was
.ald that the delegate of the Anchor
Yacht Club, of Bristol, was to be at
the meeting last night, but up to a late
hour did not put In an appearance. The
Oneida Yacht Club, of Burlington. N. J.,
Is said to be In line with the new league.
The officers are: President, John H.

TO HAVE MADE
DOOIN AN OFFER
New York Reports That He
Is Wanted to Manage New
York Americans for Next
NEW YORK, Oct. 22. It is rumored
here In baseball circles that Charier
Dooln, who hns just been succeeded by
fat Mornn ns mannger of the Philadel
phia National League Club, has been
offered tho managership of tho Yankees.
While no verification of the report could
be nmde by the owners of the lool
American League club, It Is believed
that the offer made Dooln was one which
ho would consider.
At present Dooln Is not In a position
to accept any offer because lie Is still a
member of tho Philadelphia Club, and,
according to a story emanating from the
yunker City, he was refused his uncon
ditional release by President W. F.
Baker, of that club.
The Yankees at the present time have
no ono In sight for manager, and it Is
highly probable that Dooln will be made
a more Mattering offer If he Is not sat
vslled with tho one which Is snld to have
been mado to lilm. It Is also reported
that Dooln may go with the Clnclnntl
Club, but not In the capacity of man
ager. Tccklnpaiigli Is still nominally manasef
of the Yankees, but the owners intend
to havo another man by the time thl
spring training season begins.
As Dooln Is not In Philadelphia, Un
report that he had been offered the lead
ership of the Yankees could neither bt
verified nor disproved today.
