Defeats George T. Aldrege of Dallas in Finals of Championship
Flight—Big Tournament at Montgomery Comes to Close
With Governor O’Neal Delivering Prizes to Winners
Montgomery, June 7.—(Special.)—
Nelson Whitney of New Orleans, twice
southern champion in the Southern
Golf association, won the champion
ship of the south again today by de
feating George T. Aldrege of Dallas,
former champion of the Lone Star state,
in the finals of the championship flight
of the southern golf tournament, which
was conducted this week over the
links of the Montgomery Country club.
While Whitney was conceded the
winner, the match was exceedingly
close, both players appearing nervous
at times and missing easy putts. In the
first round of the championship flight
Aldredge appeared to have a slight
advantage. At the end of the ninth
hole Aldredge was 1 up, this lead hav
ing been gained by Whitney’s careless
putts. The Dallas man held his lead
until the twelfth hole, when he missed
a short putt for a par and Whitney
won, making the match even.
Strengthens Game
Whitney then appeared to strengthen
his game, and while the next two holes
were halved, Whitney won the fif
teenth, sixteenth and eighteenth holes,
giving him a lead of 3 up at the end
of the first round.
Whitney maintained this advantage
during the greater part of the second
round, at one time being B up on Al
riredge. The Dallas player managed
to decrease Whitney’s lead to 2 up,
but Whitney soon increased his lead
to 3 up and at the fifteenth hole the
match was won, Aldredge missing an
easy putt for a tie, giving the former
champion 4 up and 3 to play.

New York, June 7.—Playing tennis that
ran the gamut from sensation to mediocre,
the Australian team defeated the United
States pair in the doubles' match of the
Davis cup preliminary tie today by a score
of 2-6, 6-2, 5-7, 6-2, 9-7.
The victory gave the visitors their first
match of the series, which now stands:
United States 2, Australia 1.
On Monday the two remaining single
matches will be played and while America
needs one match the Australians must win
both to secure entrance into the second
round to be played in England next
For thrills and excitement no Davis cup
tennis match played in this country here
tofore equaled that of today. The United
States pinned its faith to Maurice E.
McLoughlin and Harold H. Hackett, while
the island continent’s representatives were
Stanley N. Doust and A. B. Jones.
For five full sets these players battled
back and forth, first one pair obtaining
the advantage only to lose it a moment
later to their opponents. Dashing individ
ual play was nullified by wretched lack
of teamwork and marvelous "gets” made,
only to be cancelled by stupid plays a
moment later.
The spice of adventure was added by
a drenching thunderstorm, which soaked
the majority of the 550) spectators and
delayed the play for almost an hour.
Hardly had the second set been started
when a heavy rain descended on players
and spectators. Tarpaulins were hastily
stretched over the playing turf, while
the thousands, rushed for the club house.
The crowds proved too large for the
porches and floors and when the supports
began to "creak the drenched gatheiing
sought safety again in the open.
The delay and the changed condition of
the court, however, turned the tide of
victory in favor of the Australians. The
heavy condition of the turf took the edge
off McLoughlin’s game and gave the vis
itors the advantage that finally enabled
them to win out.
While the Californian was the star of
the match the steady teamwork of the
Australians proved too much for him to
overcome, aided as lie was by flashes of
brilliant form on the part of Hackett. The
Americans never at any time appeared
to understand the technique of double
play and either Interfered with each other
or left territory uncovered which their op
ponents were quick to shoot at.

South’s Premier Weightsmen Cast Old Records Into Discard
By Brilliant Work at Fair Grounds—New Orleans Y. M.
C. A. Romp Away With Meet—Gilbert Ritchie
is Particular Star
Three southern records fell before
the mighty prowess of the premier
welghtsmen at the seventh annual
Southern Amateur Athletic union field
and track meet at the fair grounds
yesterday afternoon. Gilbert Ritchie
sent the discus and 56-pound weight
records into discard with mighty casts
of the pellets, while F. Dutton smashed
the shot put mark by a powerful throw
Handicapped in the track events by
a heavy path, the athletes were able
only to register fair records, but the
weight men scored remarkable records
in almost every event. The New Or
leans Young Men’s Gymnastic club
captured first honors by a wide mar
gin over the St. Paul Athletic asso
ciation, which led the Birmingham
Athletic club by a scant point.
Hurling the lead pellet a distance of
40 feet 4% inches, F. Dutton broke the
first southern record for the shot put,
bettering the standing record held by
R. A. Barker, Y. M. G. C., by 1% inches.
Gilbert Ritchie followed this feat by
disposing of the standing record for
the discus throw, casting the disc 118
feet 11 Indies—3 feet 10 inches better
than Ludlam’s southern record of 115
feet 1 inch.
In the 56-pound event, Ritchie’s re
markable hurl of 30 feet 10% inches
eclipsed the former mark, held by R.
A. Ludlam, by three feet 2% inches.
New Orleans Y. M. C. A. First
The remarkable squad representing
the New Orleans Y. M. G. C. walked
away with the meet, scoring 6X points,
40 more than its nearest competitor
—St. Paul Athletic association, which
annexed 28 markers. By a scant point
tlie Birmingham Athletic club was rel
egated to third place. The Boys' High
school of Now Orleans, with 20 points;
the Birmingham Y. M. C. A. with 11
points, the B. H. S. with 2 points and
the Atlanta A. C. with a lone counter,
followed in the order named. Stevens,
unattached, scored 6 points in the pole
vault while the Columbus Y. M. C. A.
failed to place a contestant.
A deadlock resulted in the contest
for the chief individual scorer as Gil
bert Ritchie, B. A. C., tied for first
honors with C. A. Jolly, Y. M. G. C.,
each athlete garnering 13 points. While
each bagged two firsts and a second,
Gilbert Ritchie shoved two southern
records into oblivion by record tosses.
Eldred Streams, New Orleans B. H.
S. , and T. Dutton, Y. M. G. C., annexed
10 points and tied for second honors.
Commagere, S. P. A. A., was third with
8 points.
Remarkable results were obtained
from the three entrants from the New
Orleans Boys’ High school, who scored
20 points. Edmund Faust, the winner
of the junior mile, was returned a win
ner in the senior event. Forest Oakes,
the victor in the junior 120-yard high
hurdles, finished first in the senior
meet over several experienced hurdlers.
Finals in Dash Surprises
The result of the 100 yard dash was
one of great surprise. As it had been freely
predicted that the race lay between Upton,
Y. M. G. C., and Coleman, 9. P. A. A.,
the triumph of Jolly over the fast duo
of Louisianans was unexpected. In the
first heat Upton won in easy fashion,
traveling the century mark In 10 2-5 sec
onds. Coleman, 9. P. A. A., and Gandy,
Birmingham Y. M. C. A., also qualified.
I Tlie second heat developed a prettv sprint
In which Jolly finished first before Lo
gan, B. A. C., and Dally, Columbus Y.
M. C. A. In the finals Jolly was first
under the tape In 10 2-5 seconds time,
with Upton second and Logan a close
In spite of the heavy and treacherous
track, the 120-yard high hurdles proved a
pretty race, which Oakes of the Y. M. G.
C\, won in a run-off with Hammond. In
the two heats the Y. M. G. C. landed
every man in Buriss, A. H. Johnston,
Oakes and Hammond. In the finals Ham
mond and Oakes tied, while on the run
off the latter scored a victory with a time
of 16 2-5 seconds.
Gandy Runs Well
For ttie fourth consecutive year J. M.
Gandy, Birmingham Y. M. C. A., captured
the quarter-mile sprint over a number of
lively opponents.
Jolly added another race to his string
when he bagged the 220-yard dash by a
comfortable margin. Upton, Y. M. G. C.,
followed, while Bert Coleman, 9. P. A. A.,
was third.
While Harry Satterfield, B. A. C., failed
to qualify for the 120-yard high hurdles,
he ran a remarkable race in the 220-low
hurdles and captured first honors in pret
ty style. The first heat resulted in a
victory for Hammon, Y. M. G. C., while
Logan was second. Satterfield and H.
Johnston, Y. M. G. C., qualified In the
second heat. The finals resulted in a
beautiful fight between Satterfield and
Hammond for first place and the former
j returned first during the last 10 yards
of the race.
A. G. Stevens, unattached, captured the
pole vault with a creditable clearance.
He was first In the last May day meet
of 1912.
Prominent Athletes Jump
The running high Jump event was bit
terly contested and developed into a very
pretty contest. Werlqin, holder of the
southern amateur record; Robinson,
champion southern intercollegiate jumper,
and Sid Smith, former champion, were
entered in this event and all put up a
game exhibition. After a hot fight, D.
Griffin, Y. M. G. C., triumphed over his
adversaries with a leap of 5 feet, S1/^
inches, while Werlein captured second with
5 feet 7V4 inches and Robinson third with
5 feet 6‘4 inches.
A gruelling race was the three-mile run,
which was won by Alex Norman of the
Y. M. G. C., over Fred Gallant, Bir
mingham Y. M. C. A., and Douglas Early
of the Athletic club. Gallant made a bold
race and but for a delay of removing his
shoes would have finished in the fore.
The speedy relay quartet of the New
Orleans Y. M. G. C. annexed the relay
race, with St. Paul second and the Ath
letic club third. The B. A. C. team occu
pied second place until the last 10 yards
when Harry Satterfield yielded to the bril
liant spurt of Scott of St. Paul, who won
second place. The Birmingham Y. M. C.
A. ran fourth.
