LOCAL GOLF BECOKUJ,
Amateur and professional rep
ords of the El Paso Country
club golf course have been
smashed this week. E. V. Sum
ner, jr.. a second lieutenant of
the Second cavalry, and a
grandson of Gen. Sumner, dia
.t with his little golf hatchet.
Sumner is a wonderful golfist,
as well as an P'1-round ath
lete. His golf career started at
West Point, and he has played
in the links of the various
cities where he has been sta
tioned since his graduation from
the Point in 1908.
On the local links the other
day, Mr. Sumner went around In
71, with a 7S bogey. The
former best records were 71,
made by Livie, professional, and
76 made by Vance, amateur.
The advent of Sumner is
deemed fortunate by the club
men. The local golf team has
been very weak of late, and
some fear was experienced for
the coming match with the
Douglas Country club.
But Sumner and some other
officers of the Second, which
will be stationed here per
manently, will materially bols
ter up the El Paso team.

Finals Jn Trl-Stnte.
Cincinnati, 0 July 6. The final
rcunds in the men's and woijien's sin
gles in the tri-state tennis tournament
were played here yesterday.
The southwest is to have its own
tennis association, and it will be starr
ed with a dash July 12, 13 and 14, when
matclies will be held in El Paso under
me auspices oi me local country club.
A mass meeting of tennis enthusiasts
win be held next Friday morning at
10 oclock in the chamber of commerce.
All clubs in the southwest will be rep
resented by delegates, even those or
ganizations which will be unable to
compete in the play this summer. Then
the Southwestern Tennis association
will be formed. The best part of it is
that permission has been secured from
the United States National Lawn Ten
nis association, of which Robert Rend,
the crack player, is president, to affil
iate the southwest association with the
national one. At first the officials of
the national body pleaded that El Paso
should join with the Texas association.
B. E. Neff, of the El Paso club, wrote
them to look at a map. and the explan
ation was accepted. However, El Paso
will hold proper membership in the
Texas association, although the dis
tance will prevent matches between
this city and eastern cities in Texas-
The match to be held next week vt ill
be open. Entrees will close Monday
night. Already about 39 entries in
doubles and singles have been received.
Twelve cities and organizations will be
represented in the play, not counting
Bisbee and Douglas, which cannot get
teams together, but will send delegates.
Those to be represented are: El Paso
country club, Kl Paso V. M. C. A., El
Paso Smelter Tennis club, Elephant
Butte Tennis club, Cananea. Slex., Ten
nis club. Towne. N. II., Tennis club.
Pecos Country club, Albuquerque Coun-

zations will send two teams in doubles,
and the Las Cruces club will send
down seven players.

The fight will be keen. MesIIla

some clever outsiders who happen to
be in this vicinity will participate. The
Fuller brothers, Princeton university
champions, who are stopping in Las
Cruces, will be down, and Reedfuller,

will compete, was the champion at

New York, July S. A strike of mu
sicians, Annie Russell's aesthetic as
pirations and heat have beset New
York's theatergoers this week. By far
the most important of this trio is the
heat. with the musicians running a
poor second and Miss Russell, as be
fits one of embonpoint, decorously
bringing up the rear.
I place heat in the front rank ad
visedly, for it has been whispered
along the Rialto that the caloric waves
that radiate In shin'mering ranks from
an almost molten asphalt have strick
en dumb, blind and deaf the summer
theatrical season. Of course this may
be but a rumor not worthy of cre
dence. In fact, others have claimed
that that said season is neither dead
nor lost, but Is summering in some se
questered nook with a brass blade
breeze carefullv trained on its swel
tering brow and waiter at Its elbow.
Quiet Theatrical Summer.
Thsre is one thing certain, however,
and that is that up to date of present
writing so little noise has been made
by the theatrical world this summer
that the impression has gone abroad
that all actors have turned honest and
all -theater managers have gone to
Europe. It has been so tiulet, indeed,
that were the shade of Hendrik Hud
son, accompanied by all the other lit
tle shades "who formerly manned the
Half Moon, to land in Xew York in
search of dramatic news they would be
disappointed in their quest as were
they in their search for the northwest
It is with considerable gusto, relish
and appetite, therefore, that I turn
to the striking musicians and the
aesthetical Miss Russell. Had they
not rippled the dramatic sea this week
I should have bad to chronicle the do
ings and sayings of some perspicacious
press agent to be specific the daily
wheezes of one Edwin Waistcoat Dunn,
who comes to bat with such exciting
bits of information as the painful
writbings of Ray Hitchcock under the
dentist's care. Of course I am glad
HItcTicock is getting his molars mend-'
ed, but I hate to write at length on
Strike of Musicians.
But to return to the musicians.
They struck again the big bull fid
dler, the little fiddler, the bassoon
player and the chieftain of the clarion
ette. En masse they struck again.
You will notice that I am careful to
say "again." I might add that they
also came back once before minus sev
eral weeks' salary and possessed of a
contrite and loving disposition.
Now, keeping this fact in mind and
remembering there is nothing new in
the world, and likewise that which has
happened before will, in all probabil
ity, happen again. It seems but reason
atle to predict that the manipulators
of music will once more return to the
oichestra nit with little gained sav
The truth of the matter is th-it the I
theater manager can do very nicely
At the top, on the left, is Miss Jo sepblne Drano, -rrho Is starring at the
Play House. At the bottom, on the left, Is Miss Marie Hilo, noiv entertaining
Xeir Yorkers at the Colombia. In the center is Miss Kate Condon, vrho is

without the orchestra save in the
matter of musical shows, and even
these can usually make a pickup band
do yoeman service. Neither is the
public so in love with the dulcet strains
of the metropolitan musicians that it
will weep wUhany degree of sincerity
If it is not entertained 'tween tcts
Managers Breaking Strike.
The celerity with which the mana
gers, one and all. undertook to cope
with the strike amply bears out this
statement. William Hammersteiu, the
spectacular, engaged 12 pianists to
work in relays at his roof garden,
while others of the managerial stripe
promptly seised the first piano experl

them and installed him in the orches- j
tra pit, where he served in the ca- I
pacitj- of accompanist. I
But even if the ubiquitous piano play-
er should desert the theaters for "his
rights." the managers have yet another
card up their sleeves, for they have a
vast variety of mechanical musical in
struments to draw from, and as these
machines beling to no particular union,
it can readily be 3een that tuneful
noises can be produced without num
ber and without the aid of. the bull
fiddler, et al. Therefore, I predict
that the strike of musicians will be of

And now for Miss Annie Russell,
