At the present , Writing It looks aB If the year 1913 will witness unprecedented activity In international golf. Following upon ! the heels of the announcement that three of England's crack players, Har- ry Vardon, Edward Ray, the cham- pion, and George Duncan, would make V I a tour of the United States, giving , open exhibitions, comes the word that ten of America's mashie wizards were 1 going to invade Britain next year. i ' "With thiB interchange of golf cour- i tesles, or discourtesies, as you please, j the great cause of the little ball on I the foolish little hill will go forward .in leaps and bounds. j Americans axe acquainted with at , least two of the British trio, who ex- I .pect to visit thiB country next year. ! IThey are Harry Vardon and George j Duncan. t Vardon was .here in 1900. At that j time he was the holder of the BrltiBh title and his exhibition matches I (throughout the country were attended jhy thousands who were eager to see him play. Needless to say, Vardon j found his tour very profitable from li the standpoint of his pocketbook. j Duncan was in America a little over I a year ago. He also found it profit- rr- able. And so did his fellow country man, J. H. Taylor, who was here a few years ago. While this cluster of British stars are anxious to come to this country, thoy are debating the question as lo whether it would pay for all three of them to come together and appear at the same places at the same time They feel there is something of a risk In this, whereas, in England, they are in constant demand. But being golf ers, they will probably prefer tho "hazard" of coming here than the sure thing over there. The probabilities arc that tho Golf association of Philadelphia will do tho same as the Metropolitan association In the matter of allotting tournaments to the various courses. It has been tho custom in the past to take the events in turn. The result has. been that not infrequently important com petitions have been decided over links that were entirely unfit for them. A prominent Philadelphia golfer has this to say on the situation: "It would be much more sensible for tho association to appoint a committee of tho leading players, for they alone fully appreciate tho requirements of a championship course, and Instruct them carefuly In my opinion there are but four courses in Philadelphia which even closely approached the re quirements In any event, the re stricting of the big events to certain courses would benefit the game in two ways first, by furnishing a real test of tho game when titles are in the balance, and secondly, by improving courses everywhere. f "Take Yale, for example, a club which was not selected Tho green committee would naturally awake to tho fact that Its course did not find favor in the eyes of the leading golf ers and, In order to gain recognition, the conditions would be improved un- I Hm.w nnsncni'i.iTi jii umw hi im.iyn J til sufficiently worthy of a place among the elect. I think tho Phila delphia players who were Belected for the Philadelphia team In the Lesley cup matches would make a very satis factory committee, for they are all men who know the game and would not permit sentiment to override their judgment " THEY DRAW i Newspapers Will Taboo. Reports of Fights With Negroes. (By Monty) Now York, Dec H The dlo has been cast by one Now York newspa per, one of the oldest and most trust ed in the country, and it is our sin cere hope that the policy will be tak en up by every other publication throughout the length and breadth of the land. The paper in quostion has decided to draw the color line In pu gilistic matter that appears on its sport page Negroes' names are bar red absolutely Never again will the besmirched "Jack Johnson" bo set up on its linotype machines as part of a boxing story, and the only way it can creep into tho general news pages of the paper Is ns an essential integer in tales of justice meted out for crim inal acts.

Rather than draw dis tinctions betvieon the bad and the good of the class it is better to elim inate all of It from print for tho great er good of the very game of boxing Itself. New York Cuts Them Out, Tho other night a prominent uegio heavyweight met another fairly well known one in New York In tho semi final bout two second-class white fight ers were the contestants That in It self Is an undesired condition In view of tho fact that nearly every ono of the spectators was a white man f the races had been reversed it would have been equally undesirable ne groes watching white men in the prin cipal event. Such a thing undoubt edly is bad for the game. Tho New York paper mentioned made Its story aiound the semi-final bout between the white mon and at tho end had a brief sentence saying. "Two negroes were the opponents In the final bout " Next time, according to the later de termination of the sporting editor, the sentence will bo left off Johnson a Disgrace. Thero is no doubt that Johnson has been the most promlnont negro be fore the public eye In lecent years In this country And his dastardly acts have been about as low as one can conceive Every proper spirited ne gro Is ashamed of him and hopes that full justicewill bo his portion in the affair atCliicago It is not negroes as a whole that Johnson has shamed most, but negro boxers Nobody can think of another negro fighter without his thoughts flashing to Johnson and then having a distasteful opinion of negro fighters ns a whole If tho color line Is drawn definitely and firmly for a few years or a few months may be enough the situation as to the heavyweight championship can be cleared up "White men will fight only among themselves, and ne groes should fight among themselves. Negroes and whites should not box each other any more than they should marry each other Moreover, white promoters should not try to offer ne gro fights If the great majority of the spectators are to be white persons, and vice versa. With the Jim Flynn-Luther McCnr-ty-Al Palzer heavyweight tournament being run off in California there Is a certainty that its culmination will find a more than fair man possessing the title conferred bj Coffroth It Is possible, of course that this man may not be the best white fighter in the world, but why not call him the cham pion just for the sake of having a champion?

FItzslm mons and Jeffries in their time Eastern Colleges Pre paring for the Mid Winter Events. New York, Dec. 14. With an enthu siasm greater than over before the eastern colleges, especially Harvard, Columbia, Yale and Princeton, are busy putting a coat of shellac on their rebpectlYe hockey teams pre paratory to the midwinter events Each ono of these institutions boasts a team of championship caliber. These teams have been carefully selected from a host of applicants and it has kept the coaches busy picking out tho classiest from among tho col lego aspirants for hockey honors At Columbia, when Coach Tom Howard called for candidates for tho hockey team, he precipitated a near riot. It looked as though every oth er man at the university wanted to demonstiate his piowcss in pursuing the elusive puck. Columbia Handicapped. Columbia 1b handicapped, howeor, in not having a rink of Its own. Tho team is obliged to practice at the St. Nicholas rink, and as only a lim ited number of tickets can be pro cured at one time, the coach will have a difficult time in getting a correct lino on tho CO or more can didates. The probabilities are that Colum bia will build an outdoor rink on the South field and wait for the cold weather to freozo It over. But the work of selecting a seven for Columbia Is helped out a great deal from tho fact that two of tho t stars of lastT year's team are avail- ' able this year, and from this nucleus a full team can quickly bo built up. The star of last ycur's Columbia team was Captain J. S. Bates, the rover. He will play this year. Tho othor Is It J. Trlmblo, a senior, who was very effective last yoar in defen sive work It Is safe to predict that one of tho now recruits will bo W. Todd, who played on tho freshman team last season and mado a remark able showing both In defonsive and offensive play He will probably bo assigned a position in tho back field. They Expect to Win. With this foundation Columbia ex pects to so in and win the majority of her games this season. But the man who stands out as tho gilt edged nonpareil hockey shooter of the intercollegiate field is none other than our old friend "Ho'oe" Ba ker, Princeton's prince of the grid iron, whom Walter Camp did not hesitate to place 'In his first all Amcrlcan football team. Hobe a Great Player. "Hobe" on the Ice is a thing of supreme grace, agility and speed Combine those qualities with a Juli us Caesar courage and you have a hockey player worth going miles to seo. He is captain of the Princeton's hockey team, which holds last year's title. Harvard Boasts Best Team. Harvard Is to the front with the 10 mark that she has the best hockey team she ever had and intimates that It is the best any college ever had She will have ample opportunity to demonstrate this with Yale, Princeton and Columbia . McGill's Classy Team. Oh, yes, there Is McGiil university up there in Canada. The McGIIl boys think they hae about as classy a team as ever shot the puck over the ice and thej' are coming to Boston and New York this winter to prove it Ells Will Cut Some Ice. And Yale should not worry With four veterans of last year and a h03t of rattling good youngsters to pick from, tho Ells will bo in thero cut ting Ico all the time. In any event, it is a great game. It Is swift, thrilling and picturesque, and for that reason It Is attracting more public attention every year. For a long tlmo tho collcgos wore not taking their hockey games seri ously. But when the public bogan to pour In, and Incidentally pour mon ey Into the college coffers, the boys woke up and decided It was worth while after all. OLD CAPTAINS AND COACHES TO MEET . New Haven. Conn , Dec. 14 Prelim inary plans for Yalo'3 football coach ing work next fall will be perfected during the holiday season A confer ence will be held at the Yale club In Now York city about January 1, at which Captain Kctcham will get tho advice and counsel of all tho former captains and coaches for twenty years back FANS KEEPING AN EYE ON SENATORS New York, Dec 14 All baseball fans, particularly the American league protagonists, are invited to keep their eye on tho Washington team next season. This invitation comes from some of tho Senators themselves. The i eason they invite this Inspection Is that they are all worked up over their pitching staff, which they say will prove to be the best mound artists In the American league or their name is mud. They say the only thing that kept Cashionn from twinkling as a bright particularstar last season was his wobbly control.
