Cow Nearly Causes the Invention of New Golf Club by Stage Comedian I Malcolm Duncan, who plays the part of I lugubrious Austin Bevans, in Robert Mil ton's comedy, "The Charm School," whl'h i is the attraction at the Shubert-Murat theater for six days beginning Monday, ' Dec. 27, with mutlnees Wednesday nnd i Saturday, is Scotch both by birth aud ; instinct. He is strong for anything that savors Bonnie Scotland and recently has j taken to the "deadly” sport—that of playing xrolf. He carries a foxy suit of loud pattern; trick trousers that come i to the knees, stockings that were built for the fair sex and a cap which Sber , lock Holmes, does the detecting act with. When he drapes this outfit around him self and gathers his armful of "shinnie sticks,” he looks like an Andy Carnegie j without a chin brush. I.ast week at Pittsburgh, he engaged a Scotch “pro” to “lamp a few of his drives” before participating in a match game with another “gent” dressed in | the same funny scenery. It might be fitting to state that it Is impossible to play “gulf unless one is wrapped In I the proper regalia. Anyway, as Duncan stepped on the fairway at the ninth hole; a cow strolled : toward him and stood about or dozen feet away calmly gazing at the come dian's play. Duncan attempted to shoo the milk-producer away and out of his line of drive. 'Twas of no use. The bovine must have been of Scotch breed and wouldn’t shoo. The "pro” grabbed i a driver and let loose a noise like a i bag-pipe, but the cow dropped her head j and her horns pointed toward the “pro’s” front porch. Duncan’s Scotch blood started to boil at 110 and he spotted the pellet on an ant hill. He made a wild swing nnd topped the sphere, which rolled in the direction of bossie. She picked it up, clamped down on it with her teeth a couple of times, then tossed it out Just like a guy who's got a mouthful of wood alcohol. The lopsided piece of gutta percha was damaged beyond further use and Duncan viewed it with chagrin. Then he said to the “pro.” “Sandy, suppose she had swallowed the ball and I was playing a match game; what would you do 5” “Mon—Ye'd have to get a meat-ax niblick,” said the “pro.” Want Game and Coach SEATTLE, Dec. ii.—Signing of nn i Eastern football team for an intersect’on al game at the new University of Wash ington stadium next Thanksgiving is ex pected to result from the attendance of Darwin Meisnest, graduate manager, and Leslie J.

HERMAN MADE 7-5 FAVORITE Bantam Champ Is Believed Better Than Recent Per formances Show. By HENRY FARRELL. United Press Sports Editor. NEW YORK. Dec. 21.—As a business man, Pete Herman, the bantam king, is a real champion. He's Just like Johnny Kilbanc. For several years they've been allowing the fans to think they're about all in. They Just win by a shade over a sec ond-class man in a no-decision, affair. They always appear before a packed house of bugs who always figure that, this time sure they're going to see the title change hands. This la one reason why Pete Herman, although rated a "cheese” champion, is a 7-to-5 choice over Joe Lynch, con sidered the best boy of his weight in the country for their championship bat tle tomorrow night in Madison Square Garden. The “wise” figure Herman has been working “under cover, ’’ that he has been making himself look poor and that tomorrow night he will show himself a real champion. The squatty Italian must be/ confident because If he's knocked out from under the crown he’ll lose a big purse that mis been put up for a fight in London with Jimmy Wilde, the flyweight. champion, on Jan. 14. Both boys completed their training yesterday and were down to weight, 118 pounds eight hours before battle time. New York, which regards the west side tighter as an Idol, feels sure the t'tlo will pass to a native non. He knocked out Jack Sharkey, the toughest little fellow in America, and If he gets oue of his snappy rights over, Herman very likely will go down.

The purpose of these meetings is to bring the athletic boosters of ihe city together two or three times earn month so that they may talk over the amateur athletic situation la the State and decide on the course to be followed for the bet terment of the game. The Commercials didn’t have whui might be called a i>oor string of luck last night, quite a few of them connecting for all the big totals possible. > Coble of the Citizens Gas didn't have much on a few more of ’em when he kicked In for 205, 190 and 202. The 231 fired by Mounce of the Inter- State Cars was the best lone tally in the lot. Ball of the Indiana Bell Telephones rang the bell only once with ins 216, but ho was less than a half a dozen clubs away in each of the other times. If you don't think Fields of the Bal iards can hit them when he wants to, just take a passing glance at his -ob, 170 and 20-1 scores. Underwood and Garing, lead off and anchor, respectively, of the Electric Steels, went about as good as any of the common shooters. Albers of the Inter-States didn't get a big lot in his first and second efforts, but It was worth the money to see him clip off that 226 for his closer. Funk's 224 was the best game score posted in the Manufacturers' League. He shoots with the Midwest. The speedy Kingans didn't have a show with the National Autos until they hit the stretch, then they got lucky and won one. Cope gave the Kingans plenty to work with, but they couldn't catch on. Rass mussen and King were there with the feature stuff for the Nationals. Boilermakers Down • Rose Basketeers in One-Sided Contest LAFAYETTE.

Although the contest was one of those affairs In which then* is little roora for a feature player. White and Treat stood out la prominence for Purdue, while Reinhart and Conover of Rose deserve oven better mention.

I £ Request That Players Quit African Golf Is Expected From Landis CINCINNATI, Dec. 21.—1n order to conform with Judge Landis’s strict views against gambling in baseball it is like ly that a rule will be passed this season prohibiting the shooting of craps by the players on any of the teams. The time was when the athletes were satisfied to while away their hours of leisure by in dulging in a mild game of penny ante or 10 ceDts limit. But more recently there have been a few players on nearly every club who got the craps shooting habit and thought nothing of rolling the bones for pretty large sums. There is no question that this big play Is detrimental to the form of the athletes on the field. It takes their minds off their work, and the man who has a long losing session is bound to worry about it. Manager Huggins of the Yankees re gards craps-shooting as such a bad thing for his players that last year he forbade the use of the bones during the playing season. It Is likely that all managers will follow his example this year. Coast H. S.

Behrent. tho Em-Roes present an offense which will be hard for the Tri angles to combat, while either Frank fort or Friddle will be able to hold down the back guard position in style.
