TRAVERS BEATS BEST
OF AMA1EUR GOLFERS
Takes Easter Challenge Gold Medal
With 74 Card on Westward
Ho Course.
LONDON, April 16.? Jerome D. Travers,
amateur golf champion of America)
achieved his first triumph on British
soil when he won the Easter gold chal
lenge medal at Westward Ho from a
strong field of England's best amateurs.
Travers scored a 74 over the difficult
seaside course of the Royal North Devon
Club.
This performance is considered notable
here because the necessary carries on
several holes are greater than on any
other course In England. One hole re
quired a 200-yard carry from the tee.
Travers is known here to be somewhat
uncertain with his wooden clubs, and it
was anticipated that he would find se
rious trouble in a medal round. 'His
victory has. therefore, set English golf
dom talkirur about the way the famous
American adapts himself to conditions.

Nationals Handicapped by.
Failure of Gandil and Mor
gan to Hit Well.
AYERS WOULD HAVE WON
UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS!
Pitched Well Against Boston De
spite Unfavorable Weather.
Rain Bars Game Today.
BY J. ED GRILLO.
i BOSTON. Mass.. April 16.?With Gandil I
and Morgan, two of the Nationals' best J
j batsmen for the past two seasons, not J
i hitting anywhere near their real form,
the team is still carrying a rather heavy I
handicap. It was the failure of this pair j
to come through in the game of yester
day which caused the Nationals* defeat.
When the two strongest offensive players
in the line-up are off their stride the pro
ductive portion of the team is decidedly
weak. Its effect is just about as harmful '
as it would be for the Athletics to have !
Collins and Baker slump. Fortunately. I
this inability to hit on the part of Morgan
and Gandil is sure to be only temporary.
In due time they are certain to get into
their stride, but until then the pitching
of Griffith's twirlers will have to be of
the highest order if many games are won.
A pitcher who ran hold a team to two
runs stands a good chance to win a lot
of games if he gets the right sort of of
fensive support, but just now this seems
out of the question because of the slump
in which both Gandil and Morgan are
floundering. For some unaccountable
reason, neither seems to be going into
the ball as is customary when they are
hitting up to their standard, but. of
course, there is no doubt that in due time
they will find their stride and perhaps
make up for lost time.
It is dou-btful if the annals of base
ball record a game being played on
a day so cold as yesterday. * it was
far below the freezing point and a fifty -
miles-an-hour east wind made the ball
park almost ' untenantable. Naturallv,
there was only a handful of people in the
inclosure. The players, of course, suf
fered from the cold, although the coach
ers appeared on the lines in their over
coats. . Both Griffith and Schaefer were
thus protected, while several members of
the Boston team played in their sweat
ers. Manager Carrigan wanted to call
the game off as early at 2 o'clock, but
he called up Owner Lannin over the
phone and was instructed to piav the
game regardless of whether there was
anybody out to see it or not. Carrigan
followed instructions and for the next !
two hours or so he and his players and
the Nationals were almost frozen stiff.
Doc Avers' performance in yesterday s
game was rather encouraging. The for
mer Richmond star had perfect control
and was effective enough to win almost
any ordinary contest. With any kind of
batting behind him he would have landed
a victory with comparative ease. Griffith
had picked Boehling to do the twirling,
but when he realized that he would be
forced to play in the extreme cold he
figured that Doc Ayers was better ntted
for the task than any of the other pitch
ers. and in this he probably made no
mistake. Ayers is pretty sure to be a
winning pitcher for the team this sea
son. The very fact that he has perfect
control makes him a competent pitcher,
for anything an opposing team gets off
him it will have to earn, which is quite
an advantage.
Had it been possible to play tudav. Joe
Boehlinp would have made his debut. Joe
contends that he is ready to go the
route at top speed.
George Foster, who pitched against the
Nationals yesterday, is undoubtedly a
| young pitcher of much ability. He seems
to have good control and a deceptive fast
I ball. He joined the Sox last fall, and
I one of his achievements was a shutout
I victory over the Athletics. He is, there
fore, not believed to be a flash in the
j pan. The Nationals hit him freely enough
in the early innings, but as the game
I progressed he tightened up. and few, in
deed. were the hard-hit balls off his de
1 livery during the last four or live in
| nings.
About the only batter among the Griff
[ men who was not fooled by Foster was
McBride. He hit safely the first two
times up and there was nothing scratchy
! about his drives, either. The other Fos
ter, however, was particularly bothered
by his namesake's delivery and had the
' distinction of fanning on three different
| occasions.
That Walter Johnson is in exceptional! v
1 good condition this spring is indicated by
his announcement yesterday morning that
his arm did not feel in the least bit lame
| or sore as a result of the game he pitched
: opening day, when hp went the entire
route at full spe?*d. He insisted that he
I eould go out and pitch another game in
| the afternoon. Griflith. of course, has no
intention of piling a lot of work on John
| son. He wants to keep him on edge, all
j season, and only in the event that there
j is a chance to land the pennant will he
be pushed to the limit in the elosing
weeks of the campaign. Johnson already
is the best drawing card in baso bali.
Whenever he is announced to pitch the
attendance increases anywhere from 2."?
to 50 per cent, regardless of what city he I
appears in. Should Johnson succeed in
starting another long string of scoreless '
innings as he did last spring he will pack
every ball park at which the Nationals
appear.
Griffith and Schaefer, who did all the
coaching during the game, wore their
long winter overcoats all the afternoon,
and the two Boston coaehers did the
same. Bven the umpires jumped around
and forgot their usual dignity in an ef
fort to keep their blood in circulation, j
Players who failed to hit the ball square- j
ly indicated that their cold hands were j
being stung by the bat. and there, was j
some delay caused by the time they re
quired rubbing their hands.
The system of having a meeting of all
the players every morning at which Grif
fith presides, and at which the faults of
the previous day are pointed out. and
plans laid for the next game, is still In
vogue. That these meetings are of great
value to the team goes without saying.
The players are very much Interested in
these sessions, and the youngsters aire
learning a lot about the game which is
new to them.
Jim Shaw pitched the final inning yes
terday and retired the side in rapid order
I on three easy plays. Shaw displayed
splendid control in that one inning, and
he seems at last to have rounded into his
best form.
Nothing is going to help put the Na
tionals in their best form so much as a
spell of hot weather. That is all the
team needs to show a fast gait. Weather
such as they have encountered most of
this spring is not intended for base ball.
Milan played a great game in center
yesterday. He had four chances, and
every one of them was difficult. On two
different occasions he robbed Speaker of
long drives by splendid sprints and catch
cs, and on another occasion Hooper seem
ed destined to get a long hit, but Milan,
after covering a lot of ground, got the
ball.
Dan Moeller is undoubtedly one of
those batters who cannot get Into his
stride until the weather gets warm. So
far this spring his hitting has not been
what was hoped for, though "he has been
fortunate enough to reach first base a
good many times. Moeller will be given
every chance to get into his stride for the
reason that he is of much help to tne
team in the field and on the bases, ana
as a run-getter classes away up.
But for the pranks which the sun
played yesterday the chances are that
the Red Sox would not have scored a
run in the second inning yesterday, when
they managed to tie the score. "*\**en
Moeller took his position in the field
there did not seem to be a chance for
any sunshine, but just when I>ewls hit
a liner in that direction Old Sol took
a peep, and Moeller did not get started
in time for the ball to handle it, with .
the result that Lewis got a two-base hit
and eventually scored. Moeller then
obtained his glasses, but he had no oc
casion to use them at any other time j
during the game.
Terkes' hit, which allowed Lewis to
score in the second, was a Texas Leaguer
over first which Moeller could not reach. .
Moeller made a quick and perfect throw j
to the plate in an effort to intercept
Lewis, who, however, beat the throw by
a short margin.
LOSElilGAME
Nationals Defeated by Boston
by Score of 2 to 1.
UNABLE TO HIT FOSTER
Red Sox Pitcher Holds Griffmen
Helpless When Safeties
Mean Suns.
BY J. ED GBZLLO.
BOSTON, Mass.. April 18.?Whether it
was due to the extreme cold, or to the
pitching ability of George Foster, cuts
no figure, but the fact remains that the
Nationals failed to get more than one ]
run yesterday, while the Red Sox ob
tained two.
In fact, had it not been for a couple
of misplays by the Sox In the second
inning the visitors would never have
crossed the plate. This surely speaks
well for Foster's performance, though
had it been warm he might not have
fared so well. It is doubtful if a ball
game was ever before played on such
a day as yesterday. It was much be
low freezing, with a cold east wind blow
ing. and a skating contest would have
been much more appropriate.
Notwithstanding the fact that the de- ]
feat will be charged against "Doc '
Ayers. he gave a very good account of
himself. With a better break he would
at least have had a tie at the finish
of the ninth, the first run scored off
him having been the result of some rath
er poor work hy one of his teammates.
Ayers did his share, but was unfortunate
in being hooked up with Foster on a day
that the Nationals seemed unable to hit.
There were several occasions, too, when
a base hit by one of the Griffmen would |
have changed the situation materially,
hut it was at such stages of the contest
that Foster looked as formidable as a
Johnson. The most reliable hitters on
the team were his easiest marks, and,
as the score will show, but few real
drives were made off him. Players usu
ally relied upan to do the offensive work
for the Nationals fell before him like
grass before the scythe, and, what Is
more, he finished better than he started.
Scoring Starts in Second.
ft' was In the second Inning that the
scoring started, and on this occasion
both teams managed to send a run home,
though neither should have done so.
After Morgan haad been put out of the
way. Shanks was given a life by Scott,
who threw poorly to first. John Henry
came through with a clean single to
right. The ball was hit so hard that
Hooper stood a char.ce of throwing him
out at first. He made the attempt, but
the ball was wide of the mark, and
Shanks went to third and Henry to sec
ond. The stage was set for McBrlde,
and lie came through with another sharp
single to center, on which Shanks scored,
but Henry was held at third. McBride
drew a throw by starting for second,
and while lie was running between sec
ond and first Henry made a dash for the
plate, but was nailed by a short margin
and the inning was over.
In their half the Red Sox tied matters
up. The sky was cloudy when Moeller
took liis position in right field, so he left
his smoked glasses on the bench, and
thereby hangs a tale. Lewis, the first
man to face Ayres. drove a liner to right.
Ordinarily Moeller would have made the
catch, but the sun let out a ray or two
Just then and hid the bail; it got away
from Dan long enough to allow Lewis
to reach second. Ayres got rid of Gardi
ner, but by fumbling his grounder he had
to throw to lirst when he could have
picked off I^ewis at third had he handled
It cleanly. Yerkes then came through with
a clean single and sent Lewis home with
the tying run.
Boston Scores Again.
So matters stood with both pitchers
showing good form until the sixth, when
the Sox got the run which won them the
gamp. After Hooper had (lied out to
Milan, Engle drove a single to center.
Speaker came along with a hit into right,
which Moeller temporarily fumbled, but
when Speaker tried to take second on the
mishap, ho was thrown out. Ayres walked
Lewis and Gardner was lucky enough to
drop a Texas leaguer into right, on which
Engle ran home.
The locals led off the fifth and sixth
hy having the first man up get on. Mc
B ridge singled In the former inning and
Foster walked in the latter, yet neither
could be advanced because of the Inabil
ity of the succeeding batters to connect
safely with Foster s speed.

by h. c. byrd.
Georgetown has one of the best pitching
staffs in college base ball. It Is very
doubtful If there is another institution in
the east which can boast of three as
capable (lingers as those who carried the
Blue and Gray to victory In two suc
cessive games with Princeton and another

three men of their ability are found on
the same college nine.

some of the other hurlers is admitted,
but he more than makes up for that dis
advantage by knowing better how to

any other man in college base ball to get

seasons in front of them, with the pros
them ? Thjiir *1 m?re caPabIe in each of
tnem. Their improvement, and the nc
quisition of whatever new material that
may enter, would seem to presage good
things for the Hilltoppers, as far as pitch
ing is concern, for some time to come.
The committee which investigated col
lege base ball, and made Its report at the
K m<fli"g,of the National collegiate
Athletic Association, was very strict in
anil e'Vk"3 ?f Bome of the rules
ana manj of the practices in college ball
were censured. The following list of rec
ommendations made by the committee
has been received, with the request bv
the committee that it be published:
-c "' Tb<Ls!r!ct enforcement of rule
?ffl.c,al Rulp Book- "hich de
fines the coaching rules at first and third
bases, explicitly providing that "the
it?h?Ch=I. 1 be restricted lo coaching
the base runner only, and shall not ad
; dress remarks to any one except the
j base runner, and then only in words of
assistance and direction in running bases
He sha.ll not by words or signs incite or
tKn???2i V m? SJ)ectators to demonstra
tions and shall not use language which
will In any manner refer to or reflect
upon a player of the, opposite club, the
umpire or the spectators."
Second. The strict enforcement of
rule _1, part 1, which explicitly provides
that under no circumstances shall the
umpire permit any person except the
players and substitutes in uniform and
the manager of the team entitled to its
use to be seated cn a bench." This rule
places the professional coach or trainer
among the spectators, where he should
be during the actual progress of the
game, and places the responsibility for
the conduct of the play in the hands of
the amateur players themselves.
Third. The strict enforcement by the
umpire of the rules forbidding "blocking
a runner," "prying a runner oft th?
base" and the like, as unfair practice
land we appeal to student public opinion
| to condemn such trickery, making it im
| possible even should it elude the vici
an. e of the umpire. Sueli sharp' prac
tice Is explicitly prohibited bv the rule
| and all attempt surreptitiously to tran?
! eress them is as unsportsmanlike us it
would be for a tennis player, hoping to
escape detection, to deliver his service
from an unlawful position.
We recommend further that, in pursu
of the spirit of the rules, boards'of
athletic control and faculties of colleges
and universities, banded together to pro
mote a healthy growth and a wise con
^ol of student athletics, adopt and en
force the following specific regulations:
First. The catcher shall not. during
actual play, speak at all to the batsman
except where occasion requires a bona
fh J? ?? ca,u,l,?n' ana in speaking to
the pitcher he shall not use words reflect
ing. or calculated to reflect, upon the
team"1" ?r a"y menib"" of the opposing
Second. No member of either team
shall call or shout during the game to
any member of the opposing team, ex
cept to caution him against some danger
nor behave in any indecorous or unseem
ly manner.
Third. There shall be no oral coach
ing from the bench.
Fourth. The so-called "encouragement
of the pitcher" from the outfield shall
I be stopped, or at least minimized, since
| we believe that the shouting of remarks
tin endless iteration Is not only disagree
! able to the spectators, hut is disconcert
in* rather thar helpful to the pitcher
In general, it amounts merely to sense
less noise, and is quite unworthv of
college-bred men. Whatever "encourage
ment" or "support" the pitcher may
fllfd Can lu'etly given from the in
Fifth. The umpire shall warn any
player violating any of these rules, and
on a second offense shall exclude him
from the game.
Sixth That in general the attention of
students be called to the Importance of
?on toy ^;hf.,r,art of.tiie home

which will forbid such cheering singine

really, under the ruling specified, the um- |
pire in a biff college game has no right to
prevent the coach from sitting with his j
players. The manager of the college
team is to be allowed to keep his place
when technically he is not the manager
referred to in the rule cited. The man*
ager in college base ball occupies about
the same position that does the business
manager in the professional sport, and in
reality he is the man who should not be
allowed to stay with the players.
A rather interesting coincidence was
noted relating to this matter in the game
between Georgetown and Princeton last
Saturday. As soon as the contest began
Bill dark, coach of the Princeton nine,
left the bench and took a place in the
grandstand. He remained in the stands
during the first three inings, and saw
three runs scored against his team. After
it was seen that Coogan, the Georgetown
coach, was going to keep hie place on
the bench. Clark left the stand and join
ed his players. It was noticeable that
the Princeton men showed about twice
the ginger and played much better ball
than when the steadying influence of the
coach was absent.
That may have been only a coincidence
but there is no denying the fact that a
college team will play better ball with a
coach on the bench than without, and
those universities which carry out the
idea of having the mentors sit in the
stands will find that out before the end
of the season.
Maurice Joyce, physical director at
Carroll Institute, announces that he will
hold a three-mile run Saturday, May 10,
which will be open to all boys of the
District of Columbia and of the Mary
land Agricultural College under eighteen
years of age. There will be a team
trophy and ten other prizes: the latter
will consist of three gold, three silver
and four bronze medals.
The games scheduled here yesterday
had to be called off because of inclement
