You know the experience we've had in creating holiday good cheer." f\I C" VALUE OF THE UlULr STROKE GAME "The popularity of medal-play golf is probably the eighth wonder of the world to those to whom play by strokes is anath ema." writes Harold .Saunders in the AVorld of Golf. Then are many really good men who confess that they are beaten as soon as the card and pencil are introduced. It is merely because they allow themselves to be influenced by these simple articles of stationery, and not because th?-y are ^unable to play golf. A medal card is like the book of the re cording angel. It registers a faithful account of our -"ins of omission and com mission. If we take three or four strokes to recover from a bunker?a small cir cumstance that vi o might be inclined to forget or gloss over in our recital of a match by holes?the card bears witness to our fail from grace. There is no doubt that the reason why the medal play is unpopular with so many golfers is the knowledge that the implacable mark er is at hand, busily registering their mis deeds in strokes, strokes, strokes. It has a curious psychological effect, which makes them play considerably below their proper form. On the other hand, of course, there are some people constituted so math ematically that the presence of the re corder inspires them to give of their best. Their number, however, is relatively few. The fact that the professionals al ways insist that the stroke game is the most severe test, and the only just way i f deciding the open championship, shows that this is the most searching form of Kolf. So far as *ny experience goes it is generally avoided by the beginner and the long handicap man. They will make a match with anybody, and to hear them talk of it afterward you might think that they had been round 5n something like a par 8COr? A description of a line drive here, a beautiful second there, and long putts on this green and that?all con firmed by tin possibly beaten opponent lends verisimilitude to the Impressions of a faultles.- round. Tht player himself probably thinks that he is giving a cor rect* idea of liis game. There are not many men with suffi cient strength of mind to look facta in the face, and so it is often that we meet a player who has the courage to keep his score in a match. After all, he is only adopting the surest means of finding out whether his ?am is improving or de teriorating- Most ot us are too liable to feel amply compensated for an incalcu lable number of highly indifferent shots by the memory of h few good ones- We begin to think that we are much better than we. reallv are, and only the purifying effect of a medal round will put ua in our proper place. The result of the tirdt round or two may be that we shall threaten to clothe ourselves in sackcloth and forswear teh game forever, but we shall do neither. We shall persevere with the card and pencil, and gradually find the improvement we so long desired. It is worth remembering that one of the secrets of the leading professionals is that they always play for a score Bven in match play they never lose sight of the fact that it is the lowest score that generally wins. It is a practice that might well be followed by the struggling amateur. I witnessed the final of an im portant tournament the other day, when one of the players insisted on holing out every putt and keeping a careful record of his score. Besides being good for one's golf, the habit Is useful from a disciplinary point of view. It helps to keep u* modest about our game, and If solve of us could acquire this virtue it would be a step in the right direction. STRAIGHT DRIVE. BASE BALL BRIEFS. It is regarded as a certainty that Man ager Callahan will start next season with Chappell, Fournier and Collins as his regular outfield. Shortstop "Buck" Weaver led the White Sox in batting the last season with a mark of .272. He drew a silver bat from a Chicago merchant. The Philadelphia and Detroit pitchers were the ones that bothered Joe Jack son the most during the season of 1913, the hurling aggregations of those two teams holding tho Nap slugger down below the .300 mark. Against Bender. Plank & Co.. Joe hit but .274; against Wlllet, Dubuc & Co.. .276. He did considerably better against Bos ton and Chicago, while his average shot above .400 when he tackled thenpltchers of New York. St. I^ouis and Wash ington, the Griffith slabmen proving the easiest for the doughty swatter. The San Francisco club of the Pa cific Coast League has decided to build the stands in its new park of wood instead of concrete, it being argued that a concrete structure would be cold and damp in the San Francisco climate. The new park *ite measures 600 by 550 feet. The grandFtand to be erected will seat 6,000 and the bleachers 12,000 more. The plans call for a stand to which an upper deck can be added wnen needed and this will seat 3,000 more. An Interesting announcement is that there will be no "booze ?-.age" and Intoxicants will not be sold at the new park. President Frank Leavitt and Manager Arthur Devlin of the Oakland club stop ped off on their way to Columbus to negotiate with the management of the St. Louis Browns for the use of surplus play ers next season. Oakland found Pitchers Stone an-J Schwenk unsatisfactory, but he wants to keep Catcher Alexander and take any other players available. Facing a deficit of $15,<KiO on the past seapon, the backers of the Wichita club of the Western League gamely declare that they have no intention of quitting, but will be in the fight again next year more determined than ever. They will make an effort to get some experienced manager to take stock in the club and handle the team on a percentage basis. Pacific Coast League players raised a purse of $600. which was sent to Cy Par kin, the former Oakland pitcher, who has been in a hospital for several months suffering from typhoid fever and its complications. Parkin has recovered suf ficiently to he taken out in the country to regain bis strength and be hopes to be in shape to play ball again next spring. He Is a free agent. Oakland having released him before he took sick. INDIANS LOOK STRONGER THAN ANY OTHER ELEVEN Warner's Team Evidenced Wonderful Strength Against Dartmouth?"Big Green" Followers Take Pride in Season's Record. BY H. C. BYRD. The opinion is gaining ground that the Carlisle Indiana have the best foot ball team in the country. The decisive defeat of the Dartmouth eleven last week indi cates that it is undeniably stronger than either Princeton or Pennsylvania, and, by comparative scores, more capable than Harvard or Yale. Followers of the Dart mouth team and members of the team do not hesitate to express the opinion that the eleven the Indians had on the field against Dartmouth was better than any that any other university or college could have produced. In view of the fact that Dartmouth has j played and defeated Pennsylvania and j Princeton decisively, the opinion of its players and those who have followed their career is valuable in determining the real strength of the big teams. Of course, it may be pointed out that Carlisle lost to Pittsburgh and was tied by Pennsyl ! vania, but the first may be explained by the fact that Warner seldom develops his team to its utmost efficiency until it meets the big elevens, and it was not at that time at its best. Competent critics who watched the In dians play Penn say that they were really about two or three touchdowns better on the merits of the work. That the Indians decisively beat Dartmouth, which, by comparative scores, is stronger than Harvard, seems conclusive evidence that the odds would favor the Indians to win from any eleven against which they might be pitted. Students at Dartmouth, and those who have the interests of the team at heart, while rather chagrined at the defeat by the Indians, are not feeling that it was? because of weakness in their men, but rather due to the exceptional strength of the victor. It is felt at Dartmouth that none of the so-called "Big Four" is as strong as the eleven Cavanaugh has de veloped, and pride is taken in the team. Knowing that the championship claim was at stake, Dartmouth probably fought harder against the Indians than in any of its previous games, and that shows just how strong the latter eleven is. Sev eral New York papers commented on how fiercely the Dartmouth players work ed to make good a' right to the charn TO DROP OLD-TIMERS Southern League Wll Recruit Its Teams With Youngsters. VETERANS CANNOT DELIVER Hike Finn Takes Lead in Work of Bejuvenation and Bivals Follow Policy. Special Dispatch to The Star. CHATTANOOGA, November 18? Mike Finn, in discarding practically every member of the "Old Ladles' Home," whose inmates performed for Memphis last season, has set a pace that's being followed by other managers in the South ern League. While others didn't have so many old-timers to turn loose, many of them are saying good-bye to the stars of other seasons and looking for stars of seasons to come. At least eight veterans will be missing next year from the battle front of the Memphians. Bill Abstein, Doc Scabough, Willis Butler. Doc Newton, Walloping Ward, Rudy Berwald, A1 Schweitzer and i'arson. Hugh Jennings denominated the Memphians as an "Old Ladies' Home" last spring; Finn will make a cradle outfit of them next year. Passing of Whitey Alperman. Atlanta witnesses the passing of only one old head?Whitey Alperman?and be It remarked that Whitey goes of his own accord. Joe Dunn may depart. Many consigned Joe to the discard last spring, though, and he resolutely refused to be discarded. The Kid didn't cotton to the old-timers last year, and the only veteran Southern Leaguer on the Chattanooga roster?Otto Jordan?slid before the season started. Mobile, according to reports, Is also to get rid of vet. Heine Berger. Some how or another Mobile fans don't seem to think Berger is there with the goods. They were hot on Heine's trail during the fag end of the season, so much so that Finn did not dare take a chance with him in any of the games played against Atlanta, when one would have clinched the rag for the Gulls. Berger's form indicated he was strictly a front-runner, and because of this fact the Gull rooters soured on him. Heine, however, may get by a part of the season, but aa soon as he starts losing it is going <o be curtains. Ready for the Discard. Earl Fleharty and Jud Daley, together with Charley Case, seem ready for the S. L. discard. Daley was loaned out a part of the season to the Pelicans and played rather ordinary ball. As for Fle harty it looks aa if he shot his bolt when Molesworth released him to the Volun teers. Nashville fans are also crying for his scalp, and since Bill Schwartz has his outfield and pitching staff shaped for the '14 season. Jud and Earl may find them selves looking for jobs. Case lasted the rerent season through on sufferance, though he is still a fairly good twirier. His ability to guess bats men, especially youngsters, may keep him in S. L. ranks, but not at Nash ville or Montgomery, for Gilks will hard ly car? to worry with a pitcher on whom he can t depend. Pitcher Jack Warhop of the New Yorks has notified Chance that he will arrive in Hot Springs. Ark., February 15. Warhop says that he caught cold in his arm after returning from Ber muda last spring and that muscular rheumatism developed in his shoulder. He will boil out at the springs for two weeks before reporting at Houston. , At the American League meeting Vice President Barnard of the Cleveland club. In discussing the post-season series between the Naps and Pitts burgh. announced that he thought It was likely to become a fall fixture as often as neither of the teams won a league pennant, the same as the Chi cago series has become. He added that there was no certainty the Naps would meet the Pirates next fall. as. he expected Manager Birmingham to shape up a team before next spring which would be a pennant contender, with good chances to win* * pionship, but it was useless against an j eleven of the caliber of Glen Warner's. But now, notwithstanding the defeat by Carlisle, Dartmouth students think their team is as strong as that of any other college or university and acknowledge no superior except the Redskins. Central and Eastern High schools are to meet this afternoon. Eastern will work hard to win because it is the opin ion at the Capital Hill school that the team will have a chance to beat Tech and cause the series to end in a three-cornered tie. Central is not going to succumb easily to the ?tactics of the Light Blue and White, be cause of the long string of victories it has won in the pasf. It has been very, very seldom that Eastern lias been able to win from Central on the gridiron, and the O Streeters are not desirous of hav ing that record smashed, if they can possibly help themselves. Central has three defeats charged against it already this season, something very unusual. It has been securing vic tories regularly in foot ball since lOUi), and it goes much against the grain to have to go down before an eleven which has so often been defeated. Notwithstanding the fact that Tech nical High School has nearly attained the championship, there have been few willing to give the team much credit. In fact. Tech has really been given lit-, tie commendation in the papers for its victories, but the Technical eleven de serves a lot of praise, as does its coach. Ellis, who is in charge, has really turned out a more capable ag gregation than has been shown in the high school series. This team has failed to sliow its true worth in any of the games, and the ma jority of the men with whom he has had to work have had little knowledge of foot ball. And it is questionable if the eleven has outweighed those against which it has played by as big a margin as has ap peared. In the crucial game, that against Western, it is probable, that the lightest team that has represented Tech in years was on the field. The Technical-Eastern game Friday will decide the title without doubt. The | Manual Trainers, if they beat the Capitol Hill lads, will have the championship without dispute, but if they lose it will be a question of a three-cornered tie, pro vided Business is defeated by Western | and Eastern beats Central today. INIERBUBEAU CHESS MATCHES Plant Industry Takes Lead in Team Competition. In the interbureau chess matches at the I "apital City Chess and Checker Club last week Plant Industry' took the lead from Chemistry by winning two games from its opponent, the Secretary's Office, the juccessful players being Messrs. Hitch cock and Adams. The third game in this ?natch?that on board 1 between May and Knapp?was unfinished and stands ad lourned in Knapp's favor, although the 'esult does not affect "the match. Plant Industry* having, as stated, secured two out of three. Animal Industry improved its position by defeating Chemistry, Rob erts winning on board 1 and Parks on board 2. Chemistry will endeavor to stop Plant Industry in tomorrow night's matches, and the Secretary's Office will try conclu sions with Animal Industry.

The Soils allies won the first game handily and they initiated a hair-raising attack in the sec ond game which was within an ace of being successful. It is much regretted that Soils could not be represented in the team championship matches now in progress. It is likely, however, that a special match will be arranged between it and the champion team after the com petition is over. Soils.

Ned Hanlon Believed to Be the New League's Principal Adviser?Newcomer Has Two Points of Vantage. Special Dispatch to The Star. CLEVELAND, November 18.?Organized base ball is threatened at two points of vantage by the Federal League?at Buf falo and Baltimore. Magnates who own major league stor'" can pooh-pooh the eastern invasion of the third or outlaw body. Those who have huge plants and million-dollar franchises can well afford to laugh at any invasion or attempt by the Feds to outwit established base ball. But that isn't the point that the F?*deral aims at, as seen in their smooth, clever action. The man behind the Federal League with advice and with suggestion is none other than Edward Hanlon. The latter knows base ball in ail its details. HIh experience has extended over a gen eration, and what there Is to the national pastime that Ned Hanlon does not know is not worth the knowledge. He Is Interested in the Baltimore club. He will proffer his ideas to the men with the sinews of war, and they will be read ily and greedily accepted and carried out. But. we will return a trifle later to Hanlon. Hitting the Bight Towns. " Here's where the Federals showed that somebody behind the guns was tiring the shrapnel with deadly aim and steady marksmanship. If you have followed the course of ac tion of the Feds you will have noticed that they passed up placing franchises in New York and Philadelphia. These cities have two major league clubs in trenched there, and to tire upon them would be a waste of ammunition and a foolish display of gunnery. Buth teams in each city could amalgamate for the purpose of warfare, and with a elague champion in both towns, the combina tion would knock smithereens out of the intruder. The same thing applies all over the major circuits. The cities that have but a single league team, like Cleveland, can afford to allow the inter loper to wend his way through the base ball season. But, and here is where the shoe pinches, the minor league magnate hasn't that chance. The fans of Buffalo and Baltimore want big league ban*' ball; they expect the Feds to furnish it, and they look upon the new organization as a big league base ball organization. Stein and Dunn Have Tasks. Stein, at Buffalo, will have a team in the running all the time to compete with the Federals. Baltimore, with Dunn at the helm, will have to shoot I through the International League as a r rapid-Are worker all the time in order ti to oompete with the Baltimore club, having Foxy Ned Hanlon as the guid ing genius. f, That's where the Federal League will ii make its troubles. Once let the new F organisation get the cities on the run t. that have minor league base ball now and the big chaps will be forced to succor the little fellows, or organisa tion base hall comes a cropper. That's the way the Feds have planned their campaign. It's a cinch they will estab lish good teams in Buffalo and Balti more?teams that will serve the people of those cities the highest grade of base ball that the Feds can furnish. And if they push the minor league clubs to the wall in patronage the big leaguers must spring to the little lads' aid. Will they do it? Will they send them the players, advance them the money and fortify the weaker sisters against the invader? That's the point which will be settled. If they don't, good-bye to organized base ball. If they do. It means a merry, merry warfare and the output of galleons of money. And, If the minor league Invasion prove? successful, see the chance that opens b?? fore the Federals. The minute one of the major league cities fails to respond they can hike into a minor league village that has gone bad and usurp the patronage there. That means addtional woes for the poor minor manager who Is up against It, and a clean sweep to the front for the Feds. Again, the Invasion of Baltimore ant Buffalo was no idle idea of having an eight-club league; not by the slightest token. Baltimore has always pined for major base ball since the days of the great Orioie players of Hanloii such as MiUraw. Robinson, Jennings, Keeler and the other greats. She felt when the American League pulled stakes and slip ped away from Oysterville that h rank Injustice was done to the patrons of the same In the city of Baltimore. This feei ng has always rankled. And no matter low the major league regards the Fed erals, Baltimore believes that anything S'ed Han Ion handles is big league bane sail. That means that if the Federal league supplies a better brand of base ball than :he International, then it'a all off with rack Dunn and his minions. Buffalo has lad big league base ball, too, but it was :wenty-odd years ago and not within be memory of the present generation, jut the Bison city has always had a anguishing desire to get back on the nain line agatn. The Federal League she considers big-time stuff and will give l profitable attention to the efforts of the ">ds if the base ball brand is up to the nar?v. Thus the central fire of the Federals tas been directed at two vulnerable points n the biggest minor league cities in the >ast. It is a part of the scheme that ?mbraces in its scope a third league of najor Intentions, at any rate, if not of najor proportions at present. Chance says that he has been praised or making mistakes and panned for puli ng the correct stuff. Looks as Chough "rank were playing a reverse English hot. Strong- for Hanlon.
