Carl Saw yer Is filling his place acceptably, but lie is not McBride. Hay Morgan will hardly be back In uniform until next week.

In the light 6f this announcement, to mark tho in creased attendance of those patrons of the club, beginning next Monday. Falling vpon Babo Ruth and hammer ing him from the hill, tho Orlffmen made It Ihree out of four from tho rcrld's champion Red Sox yesterday when they defented the enemy 4 to 2. 'The Red Hok fought hard, but were un liblo to do much with Joe Bochllng, As snon ns tho Richmond forkhnnder wobbled, Walter Johnson rushed to the rescue nnd the Red Sox curled up and died like gentlemen. t In his seven frnmes Boehllng allowed the Sox Just three hlngHs.

HOPE FOR ENTRIES Manners of Matches Discussed by Vardon By HARRY VARDON, The World's Most Famous Golfer. Nobody has ever calculated quite how ninny ways there are of engaging In rivalry on the links. Certainly the va' rlety Is larger than in co'nnectlon with any other game, for while match and medal play aro the basen on which all f ot ins of competition 'are established, .t-nch has so. many offshoots that tho person who likes a frequent change of program and procedure (and often tho holiday-maker i in that mood) finds golf particularly accommodating, I think I hav In every species the simple round In which one endeav ors to win more holes than tho oppon ent, or do tho best scoro of tho day, to the more complicate! forms of rivalry wh!ch Imaginative souls have evolved.

Scot land, than whom nobody has ever breathed higher Ideals as to the manner In which golf should bo ployed, once suKKCxted tho Introduction ot "revoc able shots.' His Idea was that tho In ferior player ought not to be allowed to slur over his foozles by the slmplo expedient of receiving n stroke; ho ought to bo allowed to recall a certain number of had shots In n round nnd try them agnln, accepting each time his second effort as llnnl whether It chanced to lie good or bad. more is something In this rcheme whether It nppcnls to tho Imagination at any rate.

Whenever their There ore two players a side. All lour sore was & or 7 or 9, there could bo of the participants drive, nnd each sltlo no such thing sh a halved hole; thoi selects what It considers Its better tec doubling of my llgyres meant that I had to do either hetter or worse. Naturally, the scheme Is only worth considering when a good golfer nnd two real duffers constltutu the company; It is Just an Instance of the possibility of obtaining nn enjoyable game even when tho greatest disparity Imaginable exists between the sides. Personally, I enjoyed this match very much. There Is no other pastime In which a cham pion and two raw novices could find real Interest In a contest. Ench party would be simply a bore to the ether. To ImproTe Players. For tho mediocre player who wants to Improve, I would ccrtnlnly commend tho ordinary single as tho 4iest form of rivalry In which to engage. What may be termed the hybrid kinds of compe tition are amusing, but they are not usually good training becauso they aro apt to stimulate a person to attempt things which he would never try If 7io were playing the unsophisticated match or medal round. Certainly Is this true where four-bill contests are concerned. Personally, I have little to say against the four-ball match when those who take part In It are four skillful and ex perienced players, becauso they know their own powers and are not likely to be misled by what happens. But It Is not a wlso form of preparation for a man who Is striving for even a mod CBt degreo of proficiency. Too often each member of tho sldo depends upon tho other to play the steady game which will save the situa tion In case of attempts at brilliancy coming to grief; too often thero Is aroused a kind of artificial courage bom of the knowledge thnt thero Is a pnrtnv-r to shore tho responsibilities. The in veterate plnyor In four-ball matches Is not, I think, Buch a good fighter ns the golfer who engages chiefly In singles; ho Is not so self-rellnnt and he Is often lacking In the Judgment that counts for much In the critical period of a singles match. Tho four-hall gamo has In creased very much In popularity In Britain, during the last seven years, while, so far as I have been able to Judgo, It has becomo something of nn obsession In America. I nm sure that It Is a hindrance to Individual progress. When It Is played, much the best plan is for the two peoplo constituting a sldo to ngreo between themselves from tlmo to tlmo where ono shall go "all out" for the brilliant whllo thn nther nVinll play steadily In the hope, or Insuring at isasi a naivea nolo. This system helps to bring home the fact that what one attempts in H four-ball match is not necessarily what one would try In a single. Two-Ball Foursomes. The old-fnshloned two-ball foursome Is a very beautiful form of the game, nnd it 1 a pity that Its vogun nan waned. Still, In nn nge of hustle ami activity, I suppose It Is too much to expect a person to be content with half the number of shots that he can obtain by playing any other kind of contest. It can bo said ot the foursome that It shot, tho other ball being picked up. The hole Is then finished as In an ordinary foursome. It Is quite a good nrrnnge ment so far a any of these hybrid forms of tho game can be good .because everybody has a drlvo, which niter nil Is the shot that gratifies more than any other the deslro for free hitting and there aro nono or tho subsequent Re lays and complications that so often arise In a four-hall match. Among tho worst features of the latter aro tho fact thnt the fourth player when nppronch Ing is apt to hurry since he feels that hn U kponlnir thn other three waiting. nnd the preenco of four halls on the putting green is very contusing. Should Aim at Bogey. "liogey" Is n curious mlxturo ot match and medal play, and quite a good way of deciding a competition In a day when peoplo want a change trom tho Btrictly scoring round. The medal play clement predominates, or, at any rajo, ought to do so, Dccausa u seems to me that the best method to adopt Is to aim at doing oach holo In tho ng uro allottod to Bogey or a stroke more If nnn rerMvos a stroke nt that holo and tniBt to opportunities arising near the green, as tnoy are oouna iu uo, m saving a etrolto and winning tho nolo, l'hls Is Just what a senslblo player docs In relation to par scores when ho is trying to securo a airoKo-piuy cnam plonshlp. There Is llttlo of tho true clement or match' piny In a Bogey round Inasmuch as ono's attempts are not influenced in nny way by tho doings ot on oppo nent, nnd many goirors fnll against Bogey because thoy regard him too much In the IlKht of a rival on whom to prnctlco ropeatodly a wouid-ho tour do force. Ho Is really a very passlvo resistor who can bo conquered by tho same steadiness that produces a gooa medal round. When all is said nnd done, however, the ordinary slnglo by holes or strokes represents tho best form of tho game for an aspiring goircr to play, if, in a mntch, he wants Bomo slight diver sion from tho common, let him try tho Idea of nrrnnglng tho hnndlcap by bisques lnstond of tho usual system ot giving or receiving Btrokes at certain pre-arranged holes. As ono can tako tilsquos whorevcr he likes, It follows that the better golfer can glvo fewer of them than ho can concede In strokos whlcn have to be tnRen ot holes denoted on tho scoro card, and which may occur at places where they aro not wanted. As a rule, tho man with tho shorter handicap can glvo tn bisques halt the number of strokes thnt ho would con cedo if the strokes had to be nccepted at certain prescribed holes, instead or giving six strokes, ho would give three blsaues. but In tho enso of a big differ ence Dotwccn tho handicaps, ho might give rather more than hair tho usual allowance In strokes. Where the latter Is eighteen, he ought to be ahlo to con cede twelve nisques. there nre right and wrong ways of using bisques, ana undoubtedly' the wrong way is to save up most Of mem until near tne ena. Where they can be utilized to advsnt age early In the round, by all means use them. If you can gain a lead of two rival. I'crhinn half the customary nl I own net- In strokes would meet the case, o may be euro that the tnrcner play er would not recall his shot unless he had mode a really nnd one. and In the ordinary way ho ought not to commit Hi'- name error with two consecutive strokes. In the enso ot n mnn receiv ing four strokes. It would be n sntls fnctory bargain for him to accept In oxchnnrco two revocable shots since they would almost assuredly enable him to win two holes. Still. 1 have not tried this form of handicapping, and will leave others to decldo upon its for mula. (Copyright. 1316, by the Wheeler Syndi cate, Jnc.) CONNm DOYLE BACK ' AFTER TOUGH WEEK Conrad B.
