Willard's Trainer Knocks
Out Walter Wyss in the
Second Round
Jack Ilemplc, 147th Signal Company,
is the new- heavyweight boxing champion
of the United States marines. He de
livered tho knockout punch to Walter
Wyss, Fourth Naval District, In tho sec
ond round of their scheduled six-round
go in the Improvised nrena at Camp Ful
ler, Paoll, last night. Tho finishing
blow, which from the first appeared to
be Inevitable because of the victor's ad
vantage In height and weight, was a
six-Inch jab that caught Wyss fairly In
the solar-plexus, and caused him to dou
ble up llke'.i Jack-knife.
Tho setting of tho fight was far differ
ent from that to which the average
fighter is accustomed. Instead of being
surrounded by a wild, hooting mob, en
gulfed In clouds of tobacco smoke and
the rank odors of a city fight club, the
ring was situated In a natural amphi
theatre, the site of Camp Fuller's base
ball diamond. Tho northern hill slope
overhanging the arena was dotted with
khakl-clad marines, girls, men and boys
from the country-side, who are always
welcome at the camp
Bouts Started Early
In order that the visitors from Phila
delphia might catch an early train the
bouts were started at 7:45 o'clock. The
electric lights had Just been switched
on to neutralize the fading glow of the
setting sun when the main bout began.
In th first round Hemple played a wait
ing game and allowed himself to be
clearly out-pointed by his less expert- j
enced onoonent who exhibited a good
punch, speed and considerable knowledge !
of the fistic game. Time and again, ,
however, Hemple's superior weight
forced Wyss clear through the ropes
and the big fellow had to help his op
ponent extricate himself. The knock
out blow came a few seconds after the
second round began. It came so quickly
that the majority of the onlookers did
not realize what had happened until the
followers of Hemple had begun shout
ing after Referee Billy Rocaps, sports
editor of the Public Ledger, had counted i

Aronimink Star Leads in
Invitation Tourney With
Card of 79
Hula OpU ClnbMlola, To., Aug. 21.
Fred "W, Knight, of the Aronimink
Country Club, imd a runner-up nt the
Atlantic City tourney last spring, today
led an unfinished field In the annual In
vitation .tournament with a card of 79.
Less than half the field of 145 had com
pleted tho eighteen holes when Knight
turned In his 7D card, the only entry
thus far to make the round under eighty.
His Bcoro ls all the more remarkable
when It Is considered the way In which
he fell down in the seventh hole of
the return trip. The par Is five, and It
required eight strokes for him to holo
out. He then proceeded to register
"birds" on the last two, giving him n
forty for tho last nine holes. He had a
thirty-nine for tho first nine.
Knight's card.

Knight's work was not an accident.
Ho Is ono of the be,st golfers In this dis
trict and in the last city championship
was tho runner up. He played a con
sistent game today and only his slip on
tho seventh on the homo Journey de
prived him of a low score.
Plrlllp Corson, of the Plymouth Coun
try Club, was second to Knight with an
82, but this score was only sufficient to
tie F. J. Hlgglns, of Stenton, who fin
ished a few moments later with tho same
total. W. X. Stevenson, of Bala, had
an 83.
Only the winners of the first four
fllehtg will be rewarded with prizes and

Cynwyd, Star Reaches
Ocean City Net Final-by
6-3, 6-1 Victory
Ocean City, X. J Aug. 21.
Dr. Philip B. Hawk, the Cynwyd
Club star, advanced to the final round
of the men's singles for the South Jersey
title on the courts of the Ocean City
Yacht Club today by defeating Forrest
H. Adams, of Atlantic City, In straight
sets, (!-3, 6-0.
Doctor Hawk will meet the wtnner.of
the semifinal round match between Ar
thur Havves and A. L. Reed, of Belfleld.
Duo to the fact that Havves and Reed
are booked to play doublet today, they
win not meet until tomorrow. Tho
final round will be staged Saturday.
The match between Hawk and Adams
was one of the shortest ever played In
tho East. It took but thirty-two min
utes. While no ofllclal record has been
kept by tennis authorities, it isg be
lieved that this is one of the quickest
matches ever played.
Hawk Too Strong
Adams, winner of the Atlantic City
title on several occasions, put up a fine
game ngalnst his more experienced rival
in the first set, but in tho second Hawk
vvas master nt all times. The first game,
went to deuce six times beforl Hawk
Hawk was entirely too steady for
Adams. Instead of playing his usual
nggressive game and coming to tho net,
Adams made the mistake of trying to
ho.it the Cynwyd player from the base
line. This gave Hawk the opportunity
to get in his long forearm, back-hand
and cross-court drives.
Chairman Thomas M. Scott got the
men's doubles working; at a fast pace to
day. Two three-set matches were fin
ished. Krlc Wood, of West Philadelphia
Higti, and Xorman Clark, of Philadel
phia, sprang a surprise by defeating
Dick Myers, of Penn Charter, and J.
C. Haines, of Ocean City.
Mvers Injured
Myers and Haines won the flnt set
fi-2, but dropped the second and third.
Myers strained a muscle In his stomach
while serving in the second set, and
was unable to do himself Justice.
The other match between Fred Weln
henmayer and Larry McKay, both of
AVest Philadelphia High, and Bill Sher
red, of Hill School, and Thomas Brown,
of tho Xutlcy Field Club, was ono of
the closets ever seen at tho yacht club.
Tho scores wero 6-4, 10-12, 6-2.
Duo to tho late arrival of several of
the players, the women's singles will not
start until tomorrow.

A Real Smoke
But Let Club" Head Con
tinue Into Good Follow
Through, Says Evans
Be suro to follow through, for tho best
shots come when that la done, but the
good shot Imperatively demands that the
ball be distinctly hit before the follow
through begins. If tho bail is hit in tho
middle of a follow-through, or nt the
beginning of ono It causes tho same
result as Bhoving.
Then I must remind you of tho wis
dom of taking turf. It seems to assure
you of your shot It steadies the club
head and straightens out an imperfect
arc and strokej
What I mean by taking turf Is: Hit
tho ball first and take tho turf after
ward, but let your clubhead continue
Into a good follow-through. Do not get
your body ahead of the flying clubhead.
Lighter Grip, More Dackspin J
Tho lighter the grip you take of your'
stopum the more backspln results, and
the more dtfllcult It is to hit accurately.
As in everything else In golf tho more
difficult the task tho better the result
when properly completed.
For hose longer shots with the
stopum and mashle and Jigger take a
little longer hold on the club and you
will find that tho head will swing more
I find, particularly on these stopum
shots that a chip of sod is necessary to
their successful execution. It Is hard
on the golf course to be sure, but If the
chip Is properly taken and 13 Instantly
replaced tho divot will easily grow again
and tho damago will bo slight.
Think always of hitting through and
beyond tho ball. Another good thins; to
remember, too, Is to be sure that your
descending btroke is straight into the
line of play.
Necessary to Relax
The more relaxed one is on the run
ups, tho easier the shot, the less chance
of Jerk that fatal fault In a run-up
shot and the. smoother the running
When a ball is lying badly in the
rough, or in tho fairgreen, you do not
necessarily have to hit t.he ball before
tho turf. In such circumstances play
the shot as you would a bunker shot,
and hit the turf or ground far enough
behind tho ball to permit your blade to
go Into the turf, pick up tho ball ana
come out on tho other side. It Is sur
prising how successfully such a shot
can bo played.
Tho forward press is one of my fav
orite aids to good golf, and I recommend
whenever I have tho chance a good
follow-through and the taking of turf.
There Is no time that It Is not well for
a golfer to remember tho value of re
laxation. He must make It one of his
ardlnal virtues, for it leads one into
tho world of rythm where perfect shoU
Questions nnd Answers
Question Which Is better, a low teo
or a fairly, high tee?
Ansyer I believe ono should always
play fiom a low tee exceptlns when the
wind Is back of you. Thero Is then not
so much dlffcience in the lay of thu
ball wlun ou come to play vour sec
ond (-hot on the fairway. Furthermore,
If tho shot is pioptrly executed with the
right club the high tee Is quite unncces
saiy slnco tho left of the face of the
club will give the desired height.
The leading rider of tho present sea
son will be one of tho starters in the
special three-cornered matel; motor
paced race at the Point Breeze Motor
drome tomorrow night. Tho veteran
Georgo Wiley, of Syracuse, a former
holder of the American pace Crown, has
enjoyed one of his best seasons, captur
ing thirteen firsts out of twenty-two
rtarts this season. His last five races
have resulted In triumphs.
Paul Sutter, the Swiss speeder, and
Clarence Carman, another former Ameri
can speed king, will be Wiley's oppo
nents in this big race. Sutter has been
riding In great form of late and only an
accident to his bicycle deprived him of
first place honors' at Point Breeze last
