England, June 23. —Walter Hagen, American homebred profes sional. became the first golfer born in th e United States to ever win the British open golf championship today when he led the field of 224 players with a total score of 300 for the four rounds of pla y. Hagen won by putting on a wonder ful "fighting” finish of the sort which has earned him his American reputation of being one of the gamest men in golf. Stung by a terrible third round, when he took 43 for the final nine for a total of 79 and dropped from the lead, Hagen came back with a 72 on his final go and thus gained the title.

He played the final round in 73 for a total of 301. thus nosing out Hutchison for second place by a shot. Hutchison's total for the 72 holes was 302.

Other phases of the race fade into Insignificance beside this. Whiskaway is not lacking in support |gr who declare he can "take” Ben ■jock's star any time he starts against Morvich'g admirers contend that tblKfpisode of the i'arleton Stakes was ; an incident that will not be repeated. ! WhilskWhiskaway and Morvich bask in the uWlight, however, there are not 1 a few who>4ook upon Pillory. R. T. Wll- I son's colt whp won the Preakness and Belmont Stakes, as the most likely ] winner.

Their chances, how- | ever, are rather pale as compared with the effulgent outlook for Morvich, Pil- j lory and Whiskaway. New York Fans Regret Passing of George Burns, Popular Giant Fielder New York wants a winner. The baseball fans of New York are about as hard-boiled as any in the country. They will applaud a safe cracker If he can hit a baseball, and they seem to care little about what a man is If he plays good ball. But deep down in their hearts the fans are sound. The passing to the Cincy Reds of George Burns perhaps raised more real senti mental protest than anything that ever happened in New York, not exceeding the p“* of Larry Doyle, writes Hugh Fullerton. The New York fans are paying a just tribute to one of the finest characters the sport has produced. The fact is that perhaps his legs are not as good as they were—possibly his eyes are not as quick, due to the fact that he has played in the ruinous sun field so many years. But the fans of New York, victory lovers as they are. would root harder for Bums In left field than they will for many a year for any hero who comes along. There is no sentiment in business or in baseball, of course, but in spite of that claim of owners and managers the fact is that if all sentiment goes out of the game the game itself loses stand ing. Cj'ilet, gentlemanly, always hustling, al ways giving the best that was in him to his team, with a name that never has bean mentioned in any scandal, any row dyism. Burns honored the game he played and gave to it more than he took out. He won respect, which is finer than applause, and he never alibied. A clean, decent man, on and off the field, a great ball player and a great man— he was as near the type of finest sports man as baseball produces.

Much Discussed Infield Fly Rule Is Explained When an umpire rules a fly ball an infield fly, it merely resolves itself Into a question of Judgment. An infleld fly is any fly ball other than a line drive which in the opinion of the umpire can be handled by an inflelder. The infleld fly rule applies with first and second or first, second and thlrn base occupied and less than two out. This rule was made to protect the base runner from being doubled up by hav ing a fielder purposely drop or trap such a fly ball. The umpire, with such conditions ex isting, Immediately calls infleld fly. ii >n his Judgment the ball can be handled by an inflelder. That is a warning to the base runners that the batsman is automatical • retired. If. after the umpire rules a certain hit an infleld fly, and some outfielder makes the play on the ball and drops it. that act does in no way change the original ruling of the umpire It Is still an in field fly that retires the batsman. Base runners can advance on an in field fly the same as on any other fly ball that is caught or dropped. CHILDREN HURT AFTER RACE. MACON, Ga.. June 23.—80 b Luton won the ten-mile race advertised as for the Southern championship Thursday aft-r ---noon at Central City Park. Three chil dren were seriously hurt after the races were over when John Lett, a driver in the races, erasned into an automobile and a motorcycle OBTAINED TO FILL INDIANS’ UTILITY JOB AND PINCH HIT The Indians today added to their rost< -r a player who is expected to remedy weakness that frequently has handicappt the team The new player Is Tom Wht lan, late of the Columbus Senators an formerly of the St. Paul Saints. He is utility man and right-handed pinch hitte and can fill In at second, first and th outfield. Against left-handed pitching, t left-handed batter usually is weak, ant due to the fact that the Indians' lone pinch hitter. Harry Purcell, bats from tht left side of the plate. Manager Hendricks frequently has had to let a pitcher hit in a pinch because of the lack of an ex tra right-handed slugger on the bench. Whelan is said to possess the proper qualifications for the role here. He is powerfully built, aggressive and of the ‘‘peppery" type, good at "pepping" the game up when in the line-up and also when on the coaching lines. Last season, —hen a member of the Saints, Whelan hit for an average of .310. He was used at both first base and sec ond base and in JOT games he hit fnf pn average of .310. Os hls 104 hits he nit for 144 total bases and drove in forty-four runs. He got twelve doubles, eight triples and four home runs. He ployed thirty-eight games at first base and six ty-four at second.

Downed by the leading Millers in tha first game of the ‘ big” series yesterday, 6 to 4, the Indians hoped to produce a stronger kick today and take Pongo Joe s maulers Into camp. It was a glve and-take affair In the opener, but bases on bails ruined the Tribe chances, throe passes developing into Miller markers. Harry Weaver was slated to do the flinging for the Indians this afternoon, and the fans were backing tlarry to win If lie was aide to control h.s shouts. 1 lie defeat yesterday mad- four beatings in a row for the Indians, and they were at that stage today where they felt like they had to do something The Millers gained a full game over the Indians and Saints yesterday, for the Saints were unable to -heck the Colonels at Louisville. • The Indians got eight hits to the Mil lers ten, but the Cautillonites were there wiih the timely hits behind bases on balls and the ultimate result found the friendly enemy with two more markers. Tribe errors also figured in the Miller scoring while the one mispiny made by the visitors failed to help the Indians. Fact of the mutter all the fortune of the day's pastimiug favored the athletes irom tlie Flour Citj. Neither team win able to kick up a big rally, all runs scor ing by "ones.” The Indians scored lu tlie first, second, seventh and ninth and ihe Millers in the first, fourth, fifth, sixth, eighth and ninth. It was Lefty Morrison's last dny with the Indiana. The fleet center fielder was claimed by the Saiuts when the Tribe officials asked waivers on him and he left today to Join the Kelleyilc* at Louisville. Lcftey was obtained from the Western t'anadian League and he lias played with the Hendrlcksmen since the spring of 1921. He has been a won der In gathering In fly balls, but hts hitting has fallen off this season and he has been unable to produce with the bat with men on bases. Left y is still young, however, Rtid may come through later, but in order to do so he will have to learn how to hit southpaw pitching Morrison has been a popular member of the team. He lias worked hard, followed instructions and tried bis best. Vernon Spencer is coming back to All Morrison's shoes The former N. Y. Giant outfielder wired the club yesterday that his injured leg is strong again. Spencer is all-around good when he is right and his presence surely will boost *’ '-tianees if he is able to play up to form. Sin-a ad Seib hurled the contest yes terday, the former pitching seven innings and the latter two. Pat was wild and his lack of control proved costly. Rube Sehauer went the full route on the mound for the Millers, and though he didn't appear to have a whole lot, he was favored by breaks and good fielding and batting support on the part of his mates. Doug Baird made himself prominent yesterday. lie drove in three of the i Tribe's three runs and scored the other on Sicking's sacrifice fly after tripling in the first inning. With Morrison go: and Spencer not due until tomorrow, tlie Tribe outfield line-up was to lie changed for the contest this afternoon, Purcell golug to right field.

PROBABLY NEXT YEAR NEW YORK, June 23.—Tex Rickard will promote a bout between Jack Dempsey and Harry Wilis for the wor.u s heavyweight championship. Such was the outcome of a Square Garden conference afternoon between Jack Kear.., manager of the champion; Dan Mi Ketrick, Kearns Eastern representa tive; Rickard, aud Frank Flouruoy, ui-icuumsig ot the garden. It is the first time that Rickard has looked favorably upon tlie venture. When j Ltie match was first discussed sume ; mouths ago, Rickard was inclined to I frown upon it. bluet: then he appec a to j have been convinced there ia a public I Ucmu.iU lor such a bout. It was to get Kearns’ views on the j mutter that Rickard invited him to con ! ler Thursday. The champion s manager told Rickard that if the Utter was wili |mg u promote the bout he could go • ahead and make the necessary arrunge \ incuts. The time and pluce are still to Ibe decided upon. The oi uy stipulation that Kearns rnude was that Rickard must 1 secure .ne assurance I'rtm the authorities ! wherever lie proposed staging the bout, ■ tnat there would be no interference. JACK READY, K EARNS SAYS. I According 10 the promoter nnd the | manager, terms were not discussed. Kearns said Dempsey would bo ready ti fight at any time und at any place.

"1 am gunning around now trying to ! arrange a oout or two for Dempsey to put him in shape Then Wilis can nave a crack at the title. However, I want i Rickard to promote th# Dempsey-Wilis I match.” ! Aft, r the conference with Kearns, Rick ard said: j ”1 have no site In mind right now for | the Dompsey-Wills bout, and, naturally. ’ ! have no idea when it will he held.

Kearns’ statement that he wants Demp sey to engage In one or two bouts against opponents other than YViils. and t - fact that Rickard has no definite site for the match, furnish the foundation for the bell* f that it will be impossible to pu ton the tout before next year. It is understood Rickard is considering trying to stage the match in Jersey City. 1 if’ the New Jersey boxing commission | looks with favor upon the match and * Governor EJwardg assures Rickard there | will be no interference, that will be the I site.
