national scope has there been so
much uncertain playing. Golf that
would hate been mediocre in previous,
tournaments has been good enough
to carry three of the semi-finalists
this far. Medal scores, as a general
run, have been painfully high. Mars
ton won yesterday with two rounds
over 80. Every man but Gardner
went over 80 on one round.
Gardner has played the most con
sistent golf of the meeting. He has
been up and in with every opponent
ana played his short game with sure

Three rousing cheers by the White
Sox athletes. They don't have to
play baseball, or an excuse for it, in
Detroit again this season.
Eleven times the Sox have met the
Tigers in their own lair, and one

away is still a mystery. Xbe work
they have done in Detroit would nev

to cop. The scores show that.

18 runs, an average of six runs, per
contest, but they foozled and bungljd.
