In his heart he may pity the great artists who ^an hit the same shot in the same way ninety-nine times out of a hundred, and wonder -whether they do not long for a little variety in the shape of odiously and incalculably bad shots, says the London Times. He asks himself where the fas cination of golf can be found when all its secrets have been mastered and when a man knows precisely what is most like ly to happen when he takes club in hand to address the ball. The foozler never knows. lie is full of hope, but confidence is riot in his aeart. H. never knows from one hole to another, his vrame being so variable in character that his styl* of piay may be completely varied at any moment. He has a freer mind?unless his case be so hopeless that he refuses to recognise his athletic limitations in the comparatively small matter of golf?for that enjoyment of scenery, of fresh air and of healthy exercise which is. in theory, the boon of all golfers, in that he has learned to rake things as they come and to worry as iittic as may be when attacks of slicing or topping or socketing oppress him. There an- men who must always be hit ting. something, if it be no more than thistles with a walking stick. The hap py foozler belongs to this order, and the xolf ball has a personal character not found in the thistle head, while the rules . r.d etiquette of the game lend the charm of competitive <nterpri5< under carefu! !? gulation. Of course, the foozler. 'vt-n ti e hap piest f coaler, KTifl#* ihe distress* with out w iiich no same is worth the playing. He must overcome a natural reluctance to be classed among inferiors an^ incom petents, for he cannot be happy so long as, smarting under the goad of defeat, he is striving to reduce his game and his handi? ajf to order. If he cannot achieve the peace of mind which comes with resignation he had better abandon golf, for there will then be neither peace nor happiness in its practice. He must, too, make up his mind that, from some incomprehensible cause, the tee shot is not as easy as it seems. He loves the tee shot, and, by every rule of logic, that ought to be within his com pass. It is the on4 shot which presents itself in the name guise with unfailing regularity. It has no element of sur prise. Any sane man ought to be abje to learn the tee shot and to strike it with similar, and tolerably good, results every time. ^ But?either by reason of unnerving hopes which it excites, or frpm some hitherto unexplained mechanical obstacle ?the tee shot is. for the foozler, always difficult and uncertain. Even a fit ot good driving must not delude him with the idea that he will not again drive de plorably. He must learn to mistrust the tee shot, to be happy when it goes well without being too inuoh depressed when it goes ill. And this is a difficult dis cipline. Take him all in all. however, the hap py fooaler is well called fortunate. No man is better able to admire the delicate running-up shot with which his superiors appfoach a green, or the inevitable stop which they can put on a ball, cut with a rnashie, to remain where it pitches near the hole. He may be the equal of any man on the course in allegiance to the true spirtt of a great game, and his sportsmanship may make him the com panion of a round whom even the plus player dots well to welcome. Indeed, the only thing against the foozler is that he cannot play yoir. STRAIGHT DRIVE. CLEVELAND IS TO MAKE TRADE FOR RUSSELL FORD Nap Management to Give Kahler and Another Player for Famous Spit-Ball Artist. BY J. ED GRILLO. Russell Ford, for several years one of the most effective pitchers in the American league, may be found in a Cleveland uniform next season. A deal is pending which will give Chance George Kahler and one of the Nap youngsters in exchange for the famous spit-ball artist. Ford has not been a world beater in the last two years, but, although handicapped by being com pelled to pitch for an unusually poor team, at time has showed flashes of the form which caused him to become known as one of the American League's best pitchers. President Somers of the Naps is seek ing two pitchers and an outfielder. Rus sell Ford is a right hander and a wants. Ford is a right hander and a spitter. Somers and Birmingham think he will be a winner if added to the Naps' staff. With a gang of swatsmen behind him like Birniv's boys it is fig ured Ford would win as many games as he did in the days when the Yan kees were a fast team. Kahler, who is .mentioned in connection with the deal for Ford, had all tlie ear marks of making a great pitcher -when he first came from the minors. But he has not improved to any extent. ITntil six weeks before the last season closed Kahler did not have anything which re sembled a curve bail. After he had added the twist to his pitchiug repertoire Manager Birmingham gave him another chance to show what he could do against real batters. George failed to make a favorable impression with the fans. Kahler is weak with men on the bases. He seems able to go very well until a man reaches first. Then when he is forced to cut out his swing he loses ef fectiveness. Buddy Ryan, the outfielder ?vho, with Jack Lelivelt. was released by Cleveland to Toledo, is severe in his criticism of Manager Birmingham. He charges that Birmy does not know how to handle his players and that he is constantly in hot water with them Ryan insinuates that he was waived on by the other American League clubs not because he was not capable, but because. Birmingham re quested it. He says that he will report to Toledo, though he would prefer to play on the coast, ? whence he was secured by Cleveland. "I hit almost ..'JOo for Cleveland and believe I am still of major league cali ber," says Ryan. "Chicago. I under stand. would have been glad to have pur chased me had rtot the Naps requested waivers. However, I guess Manager Bir mingham doesn't want me around. He is continually in hot water with his players, so that doesn't worry me any. "1 would rather play out on the Pacific coast, where I was before going to Cleve land. but if they say Toledo. I *111 go there and do the best I can." James C. McGill, owner of the Den ver Western League club, is after the Newark franchise of the International League, according to a dispatch from Newark, received in Denver. Artie Hofman. formerly of the Cubs and Pirates, succeeded in securing his unconditional release from Nashville, having determined not to play ball in the south. Artie is now a free agent and open to an engagement with any club desiring his services. The Cleveland Club purchased First Baseman Paulette from Mobile. Paulette was with the Giants for awhile, but was turned over to Mobile a couple of years ago He has been hitting over the .300 mark and playing great ball. Manage Huggins of the Cardinals sold Charley O'Learv to Del Howard of the coast league. "Hug" also disposed of Callahan, a green shortstop, secured from Battle Creek, to the Jacksonville club. He gets the pick of the Jacksonville players in exchange at the close of next season. The Jersey City club has figured in a number of trades. Itjias been announced that Matty Mclntyfe. the old Detroit I tielder. who was with Providence last year, will manage the club next season. Jersey City also purchased Outfielder Cooper from Baltimore and sold Pinch McCabe, once a Red, and A1 Shaw to Nashville. The latest rumor in connection with the attempts of the Federal league to sign players from the National and American leagues is to the effect that Marty Berg hammer, the Pittsburgh boy, who was th? extra infielder on the Cincinnati team last season, has signed a Federal League contract for 1!U4. Berghammer is said to have merely signed with the league and will be assigned to a particular club later. A letter from ?*apt George McBride, received by Manager Grirnth this morn ing, brings the information that Mc Bride has spent the entire time since leaving here fishing and hunting. He says that h?> is in fine condition and has gained considerable weight. McBride is anxious for the winter to pass so that he can get back in harness. TECH MUST BEAT EASTERN TO GET SCHOLASTIC TITLE Highest Foot Ball Honors Can Be Won by Manual Trainers Only by Defeating Light Blue and White. .f- - BY ?. C. BYRD. The -scholastic foot ball championship will be at stake Tuesday in the same in which Eastern and Technical are to play. Based on what the two teams have accomplished in the past, it would appear that Western should defeat Business tomorrow, which will throw the championship on the result of the filial contest. Of course, if Western were to lose to Business the standings would be somewhat changed, but that ia not probable. Since Eastern was defeated by Cen tral. it is the general opinion that Tech should win. Of course, it may be that the Light Blue and White will come through with a victory over their heav ier opponents, but .the chances favor Tech. Eastern undoubtedly has a very aggressive, capable eleven, but it will hardly be able to make much headway against one of the caliber of that which represents the Rhode Island avenue school. Greer is the mainstay of East ern's team, and Tech's main problem will be to take care of him. If that* is well done the re.suit should be a championship for Ellis' eleven. There is not much doubt that Technical will outweigh Eastern, Greer being the only heavy man in the line-up of the latter. He is powerful and aggressive, but in the ajority of the other positions Eastern should be inferior. The Capitol Hill lads may be depended upon, though, to put up a fast, hard ganie. They do not easily succumb in any of their con tests, as has been shown by the scores. It will be a hard, well played contest, with the odds somewhat favoring Tech. Another determined effort is to be made this year to clear up the indebt edness of the George Washington Uni versity Athletic Association, in order that the university may be represented on the gridiron next season. It was a cherished plan last winter to put out a foot ball team this year, but it was not done because the faculty refused to sanction the sport until the outstand ing debt should be cleared up. Thanks to the spirit of Howard Hodgkins 4nd several other leading students, that was reduced until now the athletic associa tion is almost free of incumbrances. An active year in athletics is being planned. It is certain that the school will have basket ball and track teams, and it is possible it will put out a nine next spring. The Hatchetites will put out an eleven next fall if a debt of $17- is paid, which seems assured. At a meeting of the athletir associa tion held yesterday the following officers were elected: Alvin McC. Brown, Co lumbian College, *14?law, * 1?? president; James P. Nash, engineering, '13, v'ce president; Erwin Harsch, engineering, '15, secretary; Harry G. Beneman. Co lumbian College, '14, treasurer; Kosser D. Hunter, law, '16, and Walker M. Du vall, engineering. 'It;, executive commit tee. There is no question that Georgetown will meet one of the strongest teams it has laced this season when it goes against Holy Cross Thanksgiving day. The Worcester collegians generally are represented by a much more capable eleven than the great majority of insti tutions of that size. They have regularly been meeting Yale, Harvard and other big universities for years and have near ly always managed to make a good show ing That they will be more capable against the Blue and Gray and will show a much better brand of foot ball than is generally looked for by local followers of the sport Is certain If Technical wins from Eastern tomor row, and thus clinches the scholastic championship, it will be quite a tribute to "Haggy" Ellis and an accomplishment in which he may take pride. He has turned out a very capable bunch of youngsters, and has proved himself one of the best coaches in the high schools. Of course, he has had a heavier team in the majority of his games than his oppo nents. hut weight does not count for uverything, by a great deal. Coaching his first year at the school from which he graduated, Ellis will have won the championship, a really creditable per formance. It has been announced at Georgetown that basket ball practice will be started Sunday morning. Coach Colliflower de sires to get his men out in order that he may secure a line on the material he will have from which to build a quint. No real practice will take place, though, un til after the foot ball season, as two of the regulars of last year, and as good men as were on the squad, will not be able to report until after the game with Holy Cross. A practice game played yesterday be tween Technical High and Steward's Business College of Alexandria resulted in a victors- for Tech by a score of 14 to 0. The high school boys outclassed their opponents, being better drilled. YAMADA BEATS LOCAL MEN. Japanese Billiard Expert Exhibits Some Fine Work With the Cue. Local experts of the cue crowded the Hoyal billiard parlors yesterday after noon and evening to witness exhibi tions by the champion billiard player of Japan, Koji Yamada. In the afternoon he easily defeated C. S. Lane of this city by a score of 300 to 76, and G. H. Gray, also of this city, was his op ponent in the evening exhibition. His score was 09 to the foreigner's 300. Mr. Yamada is a skillful player, and due appreciation was shown by those who saw his play. His control and gather shots were well executed, but some of iiis best work was on masse shots. His high run in the afternoon was 36. but in the evening he made a count of and averaged twelve points fo th? inning. At the close of each match he gave an exhibition of fancy shots.

White Marquis Must Complete Championship in Britain. NEW YORK. November 20.?Daniel P. Ritehey said yesterday he would not show his new bulldog White Marquis be fore the Westminster Kennel Club show in New York in February. Ritchey gave $1,500 for White Marquis, Monday, but he made a proviso that the dog shall be a full British champion before he leaves for America. There Is virtually no dog of his weight to stop Marquis, and it is hoped that the fifteen-month-old marvel will win his championship at Dublin, Ireland, No vember 26. TAFT LATJDS GOLF; SPEAKS OF BENEFITS \EW HAVEN, November 20.? Prof. William Howard Taft of Yale In discussing the benefits of golf at a banquet taut niuht said that gt>lf was one of the greatest movements that have come to mau. He added: "I hope to aee the time not far I distant when public golf courses will be offered to the public as In ? Scotland for those who cannot pay for costly club privilege*. I would have the funda raised by taxation. Golf Is pre-eminently a game for the people and they should be allowed to play It. properly played It brings a self restraint that not even the churches can exert. The presence of a uolf club In a community Is not like tbe saloon, not like a lunatic asylum, and no: like some churches, In that 11 exerts a bene ttctal Influence. It alivaya helps the aurroundlngs, Increasing the valuation of property." VTW.- - ?/ V't.'h iSsiess? ~V' *s.f f x* y>d ;?.-? v :?*A' Zf. SK'* I s? ,V~ "V :Tr-: 4* Lots For Sale.

In his next he jumped to lit, while his last only netted him 111. The total was 355, giving him an average of i 118. Sherwoods Beat Columbians. With the exception of the rolling of Stanford there was little that was especially noteworthy. Stanford's team mates were above the average, the Sher woods winning three straight from the Columbians. Morgan had games of 107, 118 and 95. for an average of 105. Rider got 104, 100 and 93. Eiker rolled 98, 102 and 110. Their team scores ^against the Columbians were 533, 589 and 508. The Columbians did not secure 5:30 in any of their games. The game of 539 was the bpst scored by any team. Four of the players secured marks of more ! than 100 in that.

Tener's acceptance of the National League presidency eliminates a contest at the annual election, which was to be held next month. Thomas J. Lynch will step dowtf during: the coming gathering of the club owners, while John Heydler will act as head of the organisation until January, 1915. when Tener will take ac tive charge. The formal election of Ten er, of course, will take place during thej meeting, but there will be no other' candidate, as one of the conditions which ! Tener stipulated was that his election , must be unanimous. ! Th<' National League can thank itself ? for having John Heydler in its employ, i As a utility man he has no equal, and but j for his connection with the organization ; the magnates might iind themselves in ; the embarrassing situation of having to' continue Lynch until such time as Tener j is ready to take hold. The selection of Tener marks the initial | occasion in the history of the old league when every club owner has agreed on a certain individual for president. Hereto fore there has always been a hard flght at election time, and there have been in numerable deadlocks. It was a deadlock, by the way, which made it possible for Lynch to get the place, he being a com promise candidate. "Rube" Waddell. according to the doc- j tors, is a victim of consumption. The) days of the eccentric left-hander are num bered. and sympathy will pervade the base ball world. His ridiculous adven tures never bore a sting and never harmed a soul, while the stories told of his in cessant pranks added much to the gayety of the sport. In his day "Rube" was the greatest of pitchers. He not only helped Connie Mack win a pennant, but he still holds the American League strike-out record.

It develops that Robinson had no idea of being tendered a major league man agerial job when Ebbetts approached him. Having been let out by McGraw, Robin son had about made up his mind to quit the game, but Ebbetts* proposition was so'flattering that he changed his mind and signed a contract without delay. Robinson Is said to have algned for the largest salary that a Brooklyn manager has ever drawn since the days of Ned Hanlon. * - Roy Hartzell of the Yankees is to be g.ven a regular outfield position on Chance's team next season. Chance, like all other managers under whom HartseU has played, has finally been convinced that Roy's place is In the outfield and not in the infield, where he has been tried time and time again, but has never made good. HarUell is a much better ball player when played where he belongs than is generally supposed. McAleer wanted him for his Boston team last season, but Chance very wisely refused to part with him. ! McGraw may regret turning Robinson j down before the next season Is over. ; The Giants need to develop several I young pitchers in order to keep the pitching staff up to the standard, and RoDinson has shown much ability In this respect. It is no easy matter to find a veteran catcher fitted for the work of handling young pitchers, and McGraw i will be shy of just such a man. It Is likely that the work of teaching the young twlrlers will be turned over to ; Mathewson, who Is expected to be well i qualified for this work, though it has1 always been the belief that an expe- ? rienced catcher is better fitted to In- j struct pitchers.
