CHICAGO, III., August 17.?The stellar attraction in golf, the open champion ship of the United States, will open to morrow on the links of the Midlothian Country Club at Blue Island. The Held of entries embraces nearly all of the foremost golf experts of the country. Francis Oulmet of Massachusetts, the present champion, will be on hand to defend his title. Other noted players ?who will be among the competitors in clude James Barnes, Louis Tellier. the French golfer; Alec Smith, the former metropolitan champion, and Macdonald Smith, who won the metropolitan cham pionship two weeks ago. The competition will start with the qualifying round of 36 holes, the best 32 8cores to qualify. On the first day one-half of the total entrants will com pete, the other half to play on Wednes day. and the best 32 to qualify as on the first day. Then the 64 players who quali fied for the championship proper will ?lay 72 holes on Thursday and Friday, 8 holes being played each day. In case of a tie it will be played off on Satur day at 18 holes, stroke competition. Ouimet, the present champion, and the youngest player who ever held the open title, will no doubt be the attraction at the tournament opening. Since he ar rived from abroad some weeks ago he has played in several tournaments in Massachusetts and has demonstrated that when he is called upon to show his best he can arise to the occasion with the confidence of one advanced in years in the golfing game. Last year when he played a ?2 in the play-off for the na tional title against Vardon and Ray, all who witnessed the play thought that his medal score was something remarkable. Four weeks ago Ouimet went around the same course in 68, four shots better than when he gained a national reputation. The Prizes Offered. Ten prizes are offered, amounting to $900, distributed as follows: First, 3300 and a gold medal to the winner of the championship, the winner to have custody of the championship cup. but he must If required, give security "for its safe keeping; second. $150; third, $100; fourth, $80; fifth, $70; sixth, $60; seventh. $50; eighth, $40; ninth. $30; tenth, $20. In the event of any amateur winning any of the prizes he will be given the equivalent in plate. Final practice for golfers who will at tempt to wrest the national open cham pionship from Francis Ouimet was held today. Most of the 125 players entered in the tournament planned to be on the links. Ouimet. the title holder, is playing at the top of his game. In practice yes terday. his third round of the course, the youthful easterner shot one under par. going out in 35 and home in 36 strokes.

Mclaughlin's Defeat of Both Wild ing and Brookei Ii Bright Feature. NEW YORK, August 17.?Although the Davis international lawn tennis trophy haa been carried off, considerable of the sting has been taken out of Amorlca's defeat by the wonderful achievement of Maurice E. McLoughlln In vanquishing each of the great Australian pair, Nor man E. Brookes and Anthony F. Wilding. Wilding had held the all-England cham pionship for three years and Brookes took it away from him this year. As the tournament winner at Wimbledon is gen erally regarded as the world's title holder, the crown passes without dispute to the marvelous Callfornlan. The triumph of the young man from the west will not benefit him alone, either, as it really takes the world's champion ship tournament from Wimbledon and transplants it to Newport- When play commences at the famous Casino courts a week from today McLoughlln will therefors.be defending a universal rather than a national crown. The outlook for the recovery of the cup is bright, and it seems probable that It will not remain away from home for more than a year. It is an established fact that there are no two men In the world outside of Brookes and Wilding who could have taken the bowl away, and it is doubeful if they will ever play international tennis again. Brookes No Youngster. Brookes is no longer a youngster, and in his various matches in this country this year has proved that he cannot stand the strain of a long, hard battle. Even now he is con templating dropping tennis and turning to goi;. ~ Wilding is not as old as Brookesv and although he had not lost a set outside of those that McLoughlln took from him during the international matches, it was very evident that he had retrograded a great deal from the form which kept him at the head of the world's tennis players for the last four years. It does not seem likely that they will defend the cup. The trophy must be defended in Australasia, and it is doubtful if either of these men will go back there. Wilding has been in business in England for about five years. Brookes left the antipodes last fall, and it is said that he probably will make his home in England, too. This would put the defense of the cup up to a team of practically in experienced players. Alfred W. Dun lop is the only member of this year's challenging loam that will return to Australasia. Stanley N. Doust has made his home in England for some time. Outside of Dunlop, wtao placed in Davis cup matches in other years, the only available men in Australasia with international experience are Hor ace Rice and A. Booth Jones, who played in America last year. Neither of these men can cope with the Amer ican players, and the younger crop of racket wielders has not shown any particular star.

GRIFF'S BEST MEN WILL PITCH TODAY Johnson and Ayers to Work in Double-Header Against New York. CHANCE'S TEAM IS GOING AT A VERY FAST PACE Yankees Have Been Improved Con siderably Since They Last Met Nationals. BY 3. ED QBILLO. NEW YORK, August IT.?RealWng lhe Yankees are much Improved ovtr "hat they were when the Nationals tackled them laat. Manager Griffith purpoaM to use his two moat effective pltrhera-^John son and Ayera?In the double-header ?lat cd for today. ? Just which pair of Chance a twlrlers will be used Is hard to tell, but there Is gome consolation In the fart that Cald well will not bo one of them. The star of the local twirling staff has mysterious ly disappeared. He Jumped the traees in Boeton last week, and U la stood that after being fined he rod*? V disappeared, and rumor has it that he lias jumped to the federals. Whether thta Is true is not known, ^but the fact r""11'"" that he Is not apt to pitch aBain?'

Athletics, he u prety ?ure to give a good account of himself. While It I. true that the 'allure of s*v*rn 1 members of the Nationals Dlay UP to their standard this season has been a serious handicap. Manager Griffith does not Intend to make a y material changes In Ills line-up next season, unless he Is ??' n?d the work of the recruits that ne win try out that some of them are superior to ?Xan?ln the'kxt campaign and surely both are too valuable to thlnk days.

Conditions ha\e never been favorable f or Stall in gs. for the reason that he has been forced to change players Just at times when he was making progress. Not a single failure is charged against him in his managerial career, and it would be a fitting climax to have him win a cham pionship with a team which was picked to finish last In the race. If the Giants repeat it will he a sorry world s series this fall. No one will give the McGraw team credit for having a chanco to win from the Ath letics. and there will be a lack of in terest On the other hand, should the Boston Braves come through and finish on too there will be some question as to the certainty of an Athletic victory, for the Braves are a-hitting team and have some pitchers of class It is of course, a long way to the finish of the campaign, but the Braves will have but to go at their present gait to finish on top. While, of course. Pittsburgh has but a very remote chance to be prominent in the present race. Fred Clarke and crew STANDING, SCHEDULES AND RESULTS IN BIG BASE BAT.T LEAGUES AMERICAN LEAGUE. Teams.

Mike Mitchell resents being called a veteran, E5ver since he Joined the Na tionals he has been referred to in that way and does not like it. "I have been in the major leagues seven years and I a*n from being an old man. Simply beeause the fortunes of the game have switched me to several clubs of late years means nothing so far as my age or ability is concerned, and I hope to prove that to the satisfac tion of everybody ere long," is the way Mike expressed himself this morning. There Is considerable speculation among Griffith's players as to which of them will figure In the deal by which the Nationals expect to obtain Rondeau of Minneapolis. The story from that place was to the effect that Griffith had agreed to give four players for Rondeau, and some of tho members of the team grew nervous immediately. But the facts of the case probably are that the four players to be turned over to Cantlllon are men now in the minor leagues on whom Griffith has strings. There Is hardly a chance of any of the present members of the team being shifted tc the Millers, unless it* be a pitcher, or two. who has failed to make good. But Griffith is going to be sure that he has material to fill the places of his present players to better advantage before he begins to maloe any changes. RUCKER IN BAD WAY. Lame Ann May Cut Short Nap's Pitching Career. NEW YORK. August 17.?Among the momentous base ball happenings of 1914? and certainly no year in the annals of the diamond drama has furnished so many frills as has the present season is very liable to be the passing of Nap Rucker of Brooklyn. The great Georgia K.thogue isn't yet ready to own up that he must hang his war togs in the closet, and Is mak ing one last desperate attempt to cure himself of the thing that so greatly handicapped him last seSson and this year has practically put him hors de combat. "Deltoid Bursitis" is the medi cal name of the affliction which has Rucker on the hospital list. It la an affliction of the nerves of the deltoid muscle, brought on by constant strain. For the last two weeks Rucker has been undergoing a heroic baking proc ess In the hopes that the muscular con traction he is suffering with will be cured. Naps says "the old Boup bone seems to be loosening up." but the doc tor will not yet allow him to throw the ball. Several times in the last two years Nap's arm apparently came around into shape, but each time lie suffered a recurrencc of the trouble. Friends of the wonderful pitcher, and Rucker will be remembered as one of the frreatest southpaws of the game, fear the Alfcharetta marvel .never again will be able to mow down the batsmen with that wonderful form he displayed up to last season. CLOSE COMPETITON. MAYBEEXPECTED Intersectional Amateur Base Bkll Series Should Be Best of the Year. TWO TITLES MAY BE WON IN CONTESTS OF TODAY Section A and Section C Honors Are at Stake?New York Writer Com ments an Tennis Hatches. BT H. 0. BYBD. The final series in ths post-season schedule should bo well played. There seems little doubt that the arrange ment of the clubs in tho different sec tions ia such that the three winners will be the most eapable in the city, and tlieae are sure to give an interest ing account of themaelvea, Alao the beat base bail of the amateur season ia likely to be seen, Just what elubs will be in thla series ia not definitely known, but the chances are good that Ninth, Treaaury and Eaatern Will be the contending or ganiaationa, Of eourae, the eventa of the last few daiya would aeera to indi cate the impoasibility of making pre dictions with any degree of certainty as to (he outcome of the aectional games, but these ere the organiaationa that ought to finish on top, aeeording to all conditions, The championship may be decided in two of the sections today, The Tenley town club will have the title in aeo tion A if it wina from Eastern, while Treaaury will be the holder of honora in O if it is able to adminiatera defeat to Post Office, The other game sched uled for this afternoon, that between Brightwood and Union Station, will have little bearing on the title. The prediction made at the begin ning of the aeriea that the teama would battle along on pretty even terms seems to have been fulfilled, Take, for instance, section A, In that class Ten ley town started out by winning a game from the Emeralds; the next day Tenleytown was defeated by Eastern by 8 to 1, but on the following after noon the Emeralds turned around and won from Eastern by a decisive score. In section B the forecast has been carried out by Ninth trimming Bright wood and Union Station and then hav ing Union Station completely upset* things by beating Ninth by 7 to 1, If Post Office turns the tables on Treas ury this afternoon, the result probably will be the most closely contested set of games in the three sections ever known to amateur ball. Just what will be the result of the Tenleytown-Eastern game is, of course, Impossible to say, but It Is safe to say that the Tenleytown players will work like fiends to get in the final race for the title, especially as it has what is undoubtedly a rather unexpected op portunity. If the Marguette League organization wins it will have the honors in section A, and Eastern, the club boasted as the probable city championship organization, will be out of the running entirely. It Is certain that Downey will be on the mound for Treasury against Post Office. Downey is about three fourths of the Treasury team, and it. is he that Post Office must beat if it is to stay in the rnnnlng. If Treasury wins today's game it has the title, and there is no. gainsaying thitf Downey is going to put his whole effort into scor ing a victory over the Mailmen. ifIll?prSS1lm,confront,nK the Eastern Athletic Club in regard to pitchers is not an easy one, unless Cole should show a lot of stuff this afternoon when he UP* It las been demonstrated t?8.t Buck Becker is the man on whom the Potomac Leaguers must in the main depend, and whether he is in good enough shape to work today, and tomorrow if necessary, is questionable. It would ap P^r to,,b^ g00d JudSment to work Cole today, if he looks anywhere near right, to keep Becker to go against the Emer alds tomorrow. It is said that the Utter clufj has Cole's measure, and that it has been able to hit him in every game in which he has figured against it. Had Cole pitched against Tenleytown and Becker against the Emeralds in the other two games the chances are Eastern would now be leading without the loss of a contest. Herbert, writing for the New York Tribune, gives the following resume of the work of the Australians in winning the Davis cup, and says something con cerning the defeat of McLoughlin and Bundy in the doubles that is extremely interesting: "The victory of the Australasians was well deserved. Both Brookes and Wild ing are beyond the zenith of the years that mark a man's inost effective work on the lawn tenuis courts, and they accomplished a monumental task in winning the much sought Davis cup. Few, perhaps, have stopped to realize the amount of work, of careful atten tion to detail and of unremitting labor Get Yours Right Now?Half Price! ?v$20 Coat and Trousers Made from $40 F?r d? i cr Only.

Morton C. Stout & Co. Tailors, Importers, 910 F Street N.W. IjcS the two Australasia He, and especially Brookes, the eaptain and leader of the challengers, have had to do ere the cup was destined to take yet another Journey to the other side of the world. In the early part of July Brookes and Wilding1, accompanied by Stanley N. Doust and A. W. Dunlop, sailed for America, and engaged In their first preliminary match agatnst the Cana dians at Onwentsla. Although the Cana dians did not prove to be dangerous contenders at any time, Brookes and Wilding took the entire burden upon their own shoulders and played In both ?Ingles and doubles, winning every1 match. A week later they met the Germans at Pittsburgh, and here again were success ful, taking every match. The final round was played at the Longwood Cricket Club, In Boston, against the English team, and Brookes and his partner, after clinching the series by taking the first three matches, allowed Doust and Dun lop to play the final two matches, which were won by the British Isles team. Hav ing thus far come through without a defeat registered against them, Brookes and Wilding entered the challenge round against the United States, and earned a victory by three matches to two. Few will begrude the Australa sians their success at Forest Hills, and It is certain that they have earned last ing gratitude from their countrymen* It Is time now for other and younger men In Australasia to take up the burden that these veterans have so ably up held. "That doubles match might easily have been turned into a victory and this Is and without detracting one whit from the credit due the masterful Brookes and the wonderful Wilding. If McLoughlin had played in the form of Thursday I feel convinced that a dif ferent story would have been written. Under the circumstances then, it seems better to remember the Cali fornia wizard as he was against Brookes In that marvelous first set, which went 17?16 in singles, and the equal of which may never again be seen. As said in Friday's Tribune, I was particularly impressed with his improvement over a year ago in round ing out his game, or, perhaps it might be said, restraining it. There is still a weakness on his backhand ground strokes. Many times he anticipated Brookes and Jumped far out of court In receiving a service for a forehand drive that, as a rule, he shot over so fast and so deep that he ran little risk of being caught out of position. Apart, however, from this evasion of the backhand, he played with all the finish of Brookes and with greater brilliancy. Little else need be said, for Brookes, in my opinion, combines all that is best in the development of lawn tennis, and suffers only at times from the frailty of human endurance."

August 17.?Fielder Jones, former manager of the Chicago White Sox. when they were known as the hi ties* wonders, will take charge of the St Louts Federal team, it was an nounced last night. Mordecal Brown, former Cub pitcher, will be supplanted by the man who led the White Sox to a world's championship over the Cubs In 1908. Brown's Iaxness and lack of control over his men. which led to their break ing training rules after getting a great start In the Federal race, led to the change. Recently the Federals have been play ing winning ball and the management hopes to begin drawing at the gate again. Of late only a hundred or no paid admissions have been received a day. Jones two days ago visited the secre tary of the fit. Louis club and conferred with President Gilmore and St Louis and Brooklyn club officials. He had an nounced he was out of the active part of base ball for good, but the terms of fered him were so advantageous Jones said he felt he could not refuse. "I have been wanting to get back in the game again, anyhow," ,he said. "There's a fascination about It." Jones will take charge Friday. Brown two months ago was told his team should be higher In the rare and if it did not spurt at once he would be relieved. The spurt came too late. Roger Bresnahan of the Cubs was ap proached. but at that time the Cubs seemed about to go into the lead in the National League and Roger, refused Brown will be retained as pitcher.
