The last foreign invader seek ing this year’s amateur golf championship of the United States was repelled today, and the new champion is certain to* be an American. Francis Ouimet of Boston again saved his country’s honors in golf. In 1913 he first came into promi nence by defeating the English pro fessionals, Vardon and Hay, for the American open title. Today he elimi nated Thomas Armour of Scotland, holder of the French amateur cham pionship, 5 and 4. Armour was the last of four golfers from Great Britain seeking the title to Remain in the tour nament- He was the only one of the four to qualify. The only other^for eign invader to qualify, C. P. Grier, the Canadian -champion, succumbed in the first round. The south was victorious today in a contest with the north, when,, Bobby Jones, the youthful wizard from At lanta, defeated the young Massachu setts champion, F. J. Wright, 22 years old, 6 and 4. Tomorrow the sectioi/al rivalry will be continued, for the draw puts Jones against Ouimet. They have never met before in an important match. OTHER SEMI-FINALISTS The other semi-finalists are Chick Evans of Chicago and Edward P. Allis of Milwaukee. Today Evans defeated W. C. Fownes, Jr., of Pittsburg, also a former amateur champion, by 7 and 6. Allis won by 2 and 1 from J. Wood Platt of Philadelphia, who dethroned champion S. Davidson Herron yesterday and defeated Ouimet at Oakmont last year. The work of Allis, formerly a Harvard star, has been one of the sur prises of the tournament At the expiration of today's matches, Tommy Armour said he had been pleased by his visit to the United States, having found many points of similarity between this country and his native Scotland. His sartorial display today evoked'' considerable attention from the gallery. It included plaid socks that would have done credit to a parade of the MacLean Kilties in a recruiting campaign. Finding himself 5 down after the morning round, he changed to a more sombre pair and his golf improved, but it was too late. Cyril Tolley, the English amateur ' champion, who failed to qualify in this tournament, was in Armour’s gallery *1 always keep it in nrydesk~ jfa. -—my health insurance is JACOBS’ LIVER SALT It is the best corrective of all digestive troubles I’ve ever found.

From a te< on one hill, the player drives to a greer on top of another hill. If his tee sho is not good, there is a stiff uphill ap proach. Ouimet took a par 3 for th< hole, but Armour’s tee shot fail?ci t< stay on the green and when he had nc better success wi’th his second, h< picked up and ended the match. Ouimet was 5 up after the mornin? round, partly as a result of four wile sixes by Armour. At the turn in tht afternoon Ouimet was 4 to the gooc and then on tne twelfth hole he vir tually clinched the match by a 310 yard drive, which was followed latei by a 15-foot pult for d birdie 3. Ir the morning round poor putting los< Armour thre echances to halve or wir holes. Jones, like Ouimet, won his match or the short fourteenth hole. Bobby's te« shot there was regarded as the best ol the tournament. The ball stopped a fool from the pin and he sank the putt foi a birdie two. Bobby's morning round ol 72 equaled the best that has been don* on the course. In fact, some contended that he was entitled to a 71, but ex pert checking showed otherwise. He was 5 up after the first eighteen holes largely as a result of seven 3s, including five birdies. In the afternoon round Wright cut Bobby’s lead to four at th< turn, but then had hard luck on a Ions drive which almost equaled Ouimet': sensational crash on the twelfth. Tin ball, however, hopped in the rough, re suiting in Wright taking a six for i par four hole. EXCELLENT GOLF The excellent golf of Evans evoked comment no less favorable than tha aroused by the playing of Jones. Aftei the morning round Evans led Fownes 6 up, largely as a result of breezinj home in 35, one over par. In the after noon he went out in 35, or one undci par, then he played par golf for thro< holes to win the match. Prior to Jones 72 today, Evans had been the only com petitor to turn in such a low score dur ing the tournament. His card for tin morning for the day was 74. He mad< a 72 the other day in the first round. For the first six holes in the after noon both Evans and Fownes played even with one birdie each and the others par fours. Then Fownes took a five t* Evans* birdie three as the approach be ing trapped short of the green. On the eleventh, Fownes staved off de feat for one hole by a birdie three whlcl he obtained by a remarkable putt. H« seemed to be stymied, but ho putted pas Evans’ ball by a hair’s breadth, i seemed. Allis had Platt 4 down after their flrtf eighteen holes, but by the thirteenth hob of the afternoon round Platt had hi: rival’s lead to one hole. At the fifteentl hole Platt took three putts, losing th< hole, and the next two holes were halved ending the match. Allis played steady golf all day, whth Platt putted poorly and sliced severa times into the rough. The summaries: National amateur golf champion, tlilrC round: Charles Evans, Edgewater. defeated W C.
