BASEBALL SPORTS OF ALL SORTS-BOXING
Ned Sawyer, E. H. Bankard and
Chick Evans are the only Chicagoans
left in the western amateur golf tour
nament at Cleveland, but the chances
of one of the first two to take the
title are considered excellent, in the
flight of play so far in the tournament
Sawyer yesterday put out his fellow
townsman, Paul Hunter, in easy fash
ion, and Evans had a walkaway with
Kenneth, Edwards. Bankard was
driven to the 37th hole by Howard
Less of Detroit.
Jack Neville of California, one of
the best golfers on the coast, is still
in the hunt and regarded as a worthy
opponent for the Chicago trio. He
meets Sawyer today. Bankard has
a hard match against James Stan
dish, who was runner-up to Evans
last year. The big surprise of the
day was the elimination of W. C.
Fownes by Bingham of Cleveland.
Charley White was given a sweet
battle by Kid Lewis, an Englishman,
in ten rounds at New York, aniiat
the end the margin was so slight hr
favor of the Chicagoan that there was
nothing to brag of. White did the-
cleanest hitting, a hard left m the
fourth round giving him a chance.
Morris N. Moren, Jackson Park
Golf club, lowered the amateur rec
ord for the Jackson Park course,
rounding the 18 holes in $8, one bet
ter than the mark jointly held by
Chick Evans and William Rauten
busch. Golfers who buy balls from small
boys in Jackson and Marquette
parks will be liable to arrest hence
A -forth, according to a new park rule.
The idea LMa good one. Purchasing
balls from Toys encourages them to
pick up any unprotected ball on the

It behooves the White Sox to make
some headway while the New York
Yankees are in town for five games,
beginning with a double bill this aft
ernoon. Red Sox have started well in
St Louis and of their remaining six
games in the Mound City should get
four. To keep pace with this speed
the South Siders must grab four
from the Donovan tribe.
Rowland's people slumped badly in
the Red Sox series. They batted fu
tilely against the slants of the op
posing pitchers and kicked games
away by execrable fielding. Slumps
are to be expected and it is about time
for the Sox to shake out of this one
and ride again toward the top.
Of almost as great interest is the
argument on between President
Comiskey of the Sox and President
Ban Johnson of the American: league ,
