Tennis
New Champion Is Developed on
Golden Gate Park Courts
. A new tennis champion was devel- 1
oped on the Golden Gate park courts:
yesterday. Miss Golda Myer, who has
\u25a0 Jong been the cleverest player In this
\u25a0 city, wrested the bay counties cham
'plonshlp title from Miss Hazel Hotch
kiss of Berkeley.
illss Hotchkiss has always been a
!«tumbtlng block to Miss Myer, and be
ifore the match the latter was conceded;
: little chance to win. They had met!
: many times previous to yesterday and!
j always with the same result. Miss
Myer had always given a good account
'of herself, but appeared to be a trifle
loutclassed. Many of the matches were
idose, but Miss Hotchkiss seemed able
Ito pull out when the pinch came. Miss
JMyer. however, turned the tables on
her opponent yesterday, and her vlo
'tory was by no means a fluke.
Miss Hotchkiss has no doubt played
'better tennis than she did in the chal
lenge match yesterday, but she was up
I against a fast game. Miss Myer had
! always played on the defensive in the
ipast, but yesterday she forced the play
from the start. Miss Hotchklss played
| beautiful tennis at times, but did not
have the usual control of her swift
'chop stroke. Miss Myer played the
hard to her opponent's back hand
iand close to the base line. She drove
splendidly both backhand and forehand,
I scoring many aces with her well placed
' drives.
Miss Hotchkiss was Inclined to take
: matters too easily In i.,e first set, prob
ably because she had never failed to
J defeat her opponent. Miss Myer set
'a fast pace in the opening set and took
;it almost before* her opponent got
started.
Miss Hotchkiss played much better in
'the first half of the second set and
I looked to be winning easily. She fol
i lowed a fast chop up to the bet and
;tt 4-2 seemed to have a safe lead. Just
; when the spectators were beginning to
| figure that it .was going to be the same
,old story Miss Myer Increased her
speed, and. putting up a great uphill
'came, evened up the score at 4-4. She
lost the next game, but in the next
.three, though they were closely con-
I tested, the clever little park player
outplayed her opponent. She won the
( set by a score of 7-5. The score of the
first set was 6-3.
In the morning Miss Myer beat Mrs.
Neiraeyer. 6-1. 7-5, in the semifinals.
The new champion attracted atten
tion the first time she appeared on the
: courts, • two or three years ago. She
has a wonderful backnand stroke for
a woman and great things are expected
•of her in the next year, or two. Her
victory Is all the more signflcant be
;cause of the fact that in the recent

captain, Elliott, got the leather and
'left the pack for a try.

Golda Myer Wins Women's Bay Counties Tennis Title
Grant Smith
ship at Del Monte many experts figured
that Miss Hotchklss should have beaten
Miss Florence Button In the final
match. That Miss Myer defeated Miss
Hotchklss more eashy than Miss Sut
ton did shows that the new bay coun
ties champion is a player with consid
erable class.
Miss Myer is the latest of the numer
ous champions turned out on the
Golden Gate park courts. While she is
hardly in Miss May Sutton's class yet,
she is a girl. still in her teens and a
bright future Is predicted for her.
Tha annual tournaments for the
championship of the bay counties will
be brought to a close on the Golden
Gate park courts today. It Is more
than likely the titles will change hands
in all three events. The first challenge
match went to the challenger yester
day, when Miss Myer defeated , : Miss
Hotchkiss, and it is expected the chal
lengers will 1 win in both men's singles
and doubles today.
The first match scheduled is the finals
of the singles and will be played at 10
o'clock this ' morning. The contestants
will be Charles Foley and Coast Cham
pion Maurice McLoughlln. A meeting
between the pair would have attracted
little or no attention two weeks ago.
but Foley's sudden return to his best
form last Sunday changes the aspect
considerably. While it is not expected
Foley will lower the champion's colors,
there Is no denying him a chance. He
played great tennis last Sunday.* and
the same can be said p'f McLoughlln In
his match with Gardner. If both do
their best this morning the contest
should be an interesting one.
In the afternoon the challenge
matches in singles and doubles will be
played. George Janes is the single
champion and Reuben Hunt and Clar
ence Griffin hold the doubles title. \u25a0
The winner of the Foley-McLough
lin match will meet Janes, and on his
recent form the latter is not conceded
much chance to defeat either. Janes
has always been an uncertain quantity
and. ls hard to figure. Should Foley
beat McLoughlin, Janes would have a
much better chance than he would with
McLoughlin pitted against him.
Hunt and Griffin have not*played to
gether since^they won the champion
ship last year.. Hunt has confined his
play to the courts across the bay. and
little Is known of his present form.
While Griffin plays better in doubles
than In singles, those whoiiave seen
him play lately do not expect much of
him. On the other hand, Carldardner
and Melville Long, the tournament
winners, have been playing together
for some time and are a strong combi
nation.

At the opening of the second half
the ball went right down into Lick's
territory and stayed there till Mer
chant kicked it over the goal from a
placement. The kick was as pretty a
piece of work as was ever seen In an
intercollegiate meet __
After the score Lick's team went
completely to pieces and the players
were not able to advance or hold the
ball till the end of the game, but they
did manage to prevent any further
scoring.

showed himself to be a very fast man.
Holman, Lick's halfback, was respon
sible, for the Wilmerding's not increas
ing their score by securing many tac
kles in the open field. Black, the right
end, was also a sure man in catching
a runner." . • '

Palo Alto High School Team
Plays Good Game of Rugby
STANFORD UNIVERSITT, Oct 19. —
The fast fifteen of the Palo Alto high
school defeated the team of San Jose
high school in a hard fought Rugby
game this morning by the score of 16
to 8. -The prep .school lads showed a
remarkable knowledge of the British
game in spots, and the contest waxed
warm from" . the kickoff. until ••'time
was called. The match attracted con
siderable interest and a good sized
crowd of high school rooters and girls
of Palo Al toy. and San Jose flocked to
the Stanford stadium, where their num
bers were largely increased j by. colle
gians from Stanford university, who
watched the "game with . interest and
applauded brilliant plays of the eeo
ondary school lads. V- "
The game was played on the turf and :
was fast for beginners at the sport.
Gains on long dribbles as well as
pretty boots to touch marked both pe
riods of play. McGraw, a. clever back
of the San Jose contingent,; at: first
five-eighths was the most .: prominent
player on the field. He was the main
stay of the Garden City players and his
booting of the ball was a feature. A
hard field goal in the first half-. netted
three points of the eight and 'another
goal after a try were made " by.> him.
Miller and McCammon, center and full
back, respectively, of Palo Alto played
welL
Palo Alto began the scoring in the
first -period and Miller and;Lockwood
crossed the linefor a'try, each making
eight points for the red and green, as
one goal proved Impossible. •
Another . try soon followed with no
goal, and the San-Jose took a' brace
and played the local lads: for a, try,
which McGraw converted 'by. a goal
kick into 5 points. A free kick on the
35 yard gave McGraw another
to tally three, marks. This -ended the
scorings for the half. '_;.-;\u25a0
The second period proved Interesting
in. every, points except "? but
one try. was netted by the Palo Altans,
who managed to negotiate ia. . goal _In i

Rugby Makes Steady
Strides in State
Expert Players Are Coming Hen
to Try Conclusions With
Local Teams
William Unmack
. >The Rugby invasion of, this state is
attracting general attention. The ene
my has laid siege at Berkeley and
forced an entrance into the state from
Reno/ Nev. The second battalion from
Vancouver will force a landing in San
Francisco this morning.
The players from Vancouver are par
ticularly strong from a Rugby stand
point and will; do their best to take
back a long record of- wins- to their
home city. ...California;: and -Stanford
will be their opponents and I think the
boys from the land of the maple are>
going- to have a hard time to win all
their games. -Rugby in San ; Francisco
has considerably improved since Van
couver last ' played^hercV There: are
several reasons for this. Firsts in the
games played with Vancouver last year
the players .at: both universities .were
quick to pick up the different points
andy tricks of. the game that the Cana
dians showed in their ; several games
here. Secondly, the coaches at both
universities have during the past year
had, opportunities of studying the game
thoroughly in different, parts of the
world and the knowledge • thus gained
.they have put to excellent- use' in the
development of their. respective teams.
Thirdly, the general", fueling at. both
California and Stanford, universities
has been much' more favorable toward
Rugby than was shown* last; year. This
fact in itself \u25a0; would \u0084go "at long way
toward helping the game. , Last, 1 but by
no means the least important factor
in the advancement and the teaching of
the game to the university players, was
the formation of the Barbarian Rugby
football team. This team has done
more for Rugby than- it has been given
credit . for. The Barbarians played
games with both Stanford and Califor
nia and their playing. has been watched
with great Interest by the players of
both universities. ; The points the Bar
barians were able', to teach were quick
ly absorbed' by the varsity, teams and it
is now a case of the scholar outdis
tancing the master. : '
Another step in the onward march
and advancement of -Rugby has been
the adoption of the game by fully a
dozen high schools- in and around San
Francisco, j This will-not have a very
great effect in the present high stand-*
ard the game. Is attaining, but next
year the result of the | knowledge
learned by the schoolboys will be very
much felt and shown in a markd de
gree.. '.
The foregoing reasons have played
their part In the advancement of the
game, and; I say that when -the Van
couver men lineup in the first game
against California on Wednesday they
will find the blue and gold boys know
as much about the game as they . do
themselves. ' .>
I would like to see a game between
Vancouver and the Barbarians. The
only day this game could be played
would be a week from today. The
Barbarians are not averse to playing
on Sunday, and if I the -Vancouver play
ers are. -willing there is a prospect of
a first class ; contest. There is 'not
! much time. remaining and It Is tojbe
1 hoped the Barbarians will bring the
match to a successful issue. If the
baseball grounds can be secured, a
good gate can be looked for. The
public is deeply: interested In the game,
and gi\fen .a fine day would turn out
to see such an international match. ;
'"'.A .' ?; \u25a0 ' ; •:>\u25a0'\u25a0
For the next three weeks the coaches
at both California and Stanford uni
versities will be kept busy getting the
varsity teams into shape. Both teams
are shaping splendidly, and only, re
quire coaching In some of the really
finer points of the game. In the time
at their disposal before the "big game"
each team has its schedule filled to the
limit with teams '\u25a0 that will give really
Interesting exhibitions of Rugby.
The team from- Vancouver Is due to
arrive here this morning and will play
a series of games with both varsities.
Nevada university has a game scheduled
with Stanford, and the Barbarians will
act as a "trial horse" . for both var
sities. :•' .-.-:..
It is yet too far ahead to make any
predictions as to the result of ; the
game on November 9. ,1 think tho Stan
ford: boys are more advanced' In 7 the
play of -their back division than are
the California boys. ,', But then on the
other hand' the.., blue and gold for
wards are superior to the Stanford
pack. -' 7 . '_„..
Both . varsities have started on a
systematic-, training course. ... Their
teams have \u25a0 . established .'. "training
tables," and- the trainers from- now
on will -put fo/th every effort to get
the boys in perfect condition :A t or the
great struggle." - ' \u25a0\u25a0-»-\u25a0\u25a0

better, Bhape. • \u25a0- :

Tex Rlckard Is again bidding' for a

Joe Gana and Battling Nelson for a
meeting at Ely, . Nev., on New.; Year's
day. He offers a $25,000 purse for , the_
affair. 1 This would . seem Nelson's most*
profitable fight, as no about here would
make-such*, an, offer. - Rlckard also
wants to bet ; Jim > May , : of, Reno $20,000
that Gans can stop Nelson In 20 rounds.

son is going on a hunting trip In Mon
tana soon, and according to his' plans
he will be in the wilds until about the
Ist of November. If : he decides to take
on Gans he will be In good', rugged con
dition to commence training. It will
be Interesting to watch Nelson's efforts
at self -management, especially in the
first big match he makes. He did not
make a brilliant start by agreeing to
take on some boxers at $500 an exhibi
tion. Nelson would have scorned this
amount a year ago. It may be that the
ready money looks good to him, and
that he cannot resist the* temptation to
pick up what is offered.
Gans presents a. curious contradiction
in the matter of physical courage. In
the ring . he will take on men much
latfer than himself, and in his long
career : has shown but few evidences
of timidity. Outside the ring he is an
entirely .'. different character. He Is In
mortal .dread of earthquakes. He was
In this city when the big one came, and
he was nearly l killed by falling bricks.
Since then when 'the night is sultry he
refuses', to go to bed. "preferring to sit
up and wait for something to happen.
- Kid North, his greatest friend here,
laughs at Gans' fears of being out after
dark. Gans is always expecting a
holdup man to step out from the shad
ows and relieve him of his valuables.
To avoid being taken by surprise he
always walks on the outer edge of the
sidewalk. He does not seem to think
that with one blow he could knock
down the most burly - footpad. It Is
safe to say that* any guests he may
have in his big new automobile will be
perfectly safe, as he will not run It
at a dangerous rate of speed.
Alex Greggalns and other good
Judges, of . boxing are commencing to
think that Al Kaufman is the coming
star In the heavy weight division. He
has "done all that has been asked of
him since he lost to Jack O'Brien, when
he was a mere novice, and it Is believed
that some day he will stand out above
all the heavy weights. He seems slow
at :' the present time, but speed • will
come with more practice, under the di
rection ' of Billy Delaney, his mentor.
Kaufman seems to hit a harder blow
than any man of recent years, with the
exception of Jeffries., This is a valuable
asset In the -prizering, as a blow well
landed cuts down an opponent and
makes him less formidable. -
Packy McFarland, the Chicago light
weight, who has come to tho "front
rapidly In the past year, will surely
be seen- in action here this winter. For
a time he "resisted all the blandish
ments of the promoters, but now he Is

Samuel Berger. B. 8. (for th» honor
of Fillmore street let It be said that
B. S. does not stand for Big Stiff). Sam
uel Berger Is- the newest addition to
the faculty across the bay. As he iay*;
"It Is but recently that I taketh mysei;
from the congested precincts of Fili
more street and Eddie Graney's to bask
In the lodofortn of the Berkeley oaks.
Culture always appealed to me, and I
have matriculated as a member of the
faculty. Joined the push, become a
satellite of Benjamin Id» Wheeler at
the earnest aggravation of the rah-rah
lads- My physic and my record of hav
ing stayed In the ring with Al Kauf
man for an Incredibly short time makes
me a valued* protestation to the de
parture of philosophy at the school. I
have always been fond of children, and
the little Juniors in knickerbockers and
the freshmen on tho eve of graduation
appeal to me."
Sammy was yanked from Ftllmore
street last week to become a compeer
of the Ph. D.'s and the IX. D.'s and the
other big D's of the faculty. Ha has,
a corps of young huskies, none of
whom are as big as Jeffries but they
are said to be comers. Sam Is soon to
be dean of the college of scrappers;
and will then have a bid to ail the
sorority functions. Ho will add Cocky
O'Brien to his staff.
Several young- Instructors, to whom
Professor Berger condescends to speak,
are registered in his classes. an4,Sam
has promised Alex Greggalns a"*^fi:r of
doctors of philosophy or a couple of
masters of arts as a feature of the next
gents' night of the four round club.
Black eyes are already beginning to
show about the campus.' Professor Ber

the husky freshman from Trinlboldt

STUDENTS HOLD MASS MEETING
The students of Oakland high school
held a mass meeting last week to de
cide the advisability of withdrawing
from the A. A. L. The matter arose
over the suspension of Kltrelle. but as
Kltrelle was given consent to compete
in yesterday's contest the school did
not take any definite action.

reaching out for a match and will
surely be accommodated. The most
promising match Is oao with George
Memsic. who stayed 20 rounds with Jos
Gans recently at Los Angeles.
McFarland has signified his willing
ness to meet the protege of Tommy
Burns If the latter will make 133
pounds ringside. He is expected to
agree to -al», as while training for
Gans he touched! this mark, although
he was allowed to weigh 135~'i o--nds
ringside. There is a general deiire to
see some new faces In tho ring here,
the changes having been run 5 on some
of the old standbys. until both they and
the public are entitled to a rest. There
Is a remarkable dearth of good boxers
at the present tizxr€. teghgaMagß
This is remarkable, aa there aro ath
letic clubs throughout the country
which make a specialty of boxtng and
they should turn out more handy men
with the gloves. The most surprising
condition, howaver, is'- that the four
round game In this city produced so
few stars. Kyle Whitney seems to bo
about the only one who is able to hold
his own In the bigger field where th»
