EOCS" AMEN CO RNER BY -BECK." "VETERANS" not "old men," is what Eugene E. NeS wants the class "over 35" in the Border States tennis tournament called. Mr. Nefi declares that the "veterans" are not "old" and that they v ill show some of the youngsters something. By the way, the first five entries for tie tournament came' from "vet erans," so they are already beating the youngsters to it. LJARRT KANE continues to hold the mark for speeding up the games in the Rio Grande league. Mahaffey and Stirling have been working under adverse weather con ditions but both have an eye on the 1:35 mark made by Kane at Phoenix on Thursday. "TWO games Snn-ay should draw a big crowd to the Rio Grande league park. The new grandstand increases the seating capacity to 4000, so there will be rdom for all who .come.

COLUMBIA TAKES UP FOOTBALL AGAIN Xew York, May 8. Hopes are enter tained by undergradautes at Columbia that the Blue and White will make a good showing on the gridiron next fall; and it can be stated positively. even at this early staze. that South Field will bold a record cr-."d on October' 16 when the season opens. New York has not been represented by a first class football team since 1905, even though it possessed two possibili ties in FVjrdham and New York univer sity. Columbia may bring back the old days of a once-in-a-while victory over Yale, Harvard and Princeton after the flve-year trial neriod is over. At pres ent she looks for success wltlr her smaller opponents of the caliber of Williams, Amherst, Trinity, Syracuse and Bowdoin.

A iTXEli a two uay mjou uw V Grande leaguers were due to get .C.X. bnsy again Saturday afteoteon at the TVyoming strtet park. The rest has done all the players good for four games played In high windstorms rather play havoc with anybody. The Las Cruces and El Paso .earns are now "even up" on the series, but as there are seven games to be . layeU in all. there will have to be a verdict by Sunday night The Saturday game was carded to start at 2 o'clock and two games are on the card for Sunday, the first being called at 3 o'clock. Stoney McGlynn was expected to be, called upon for mound duty on Satur day afternoon for the home crew with Sammy Beer working for Las Cruces. On Sunday Jack Lewis will have his turn again, likely in the first game, with Kitty Knight officiating in the second. Kalllo and Black will do the heaving for the- Hurleyttes, as it Is likely that Russell will be left in the Sarden, owing to GoMte's sore hand. The new section of the grandstand is now well under way. Fart of it will be available for Saturday afternoon and Sunday. When completed, the grandstand will seat about 100 persons while the bleachers will take are of :10S. With popular prices prevailing, there should be a capacity crowd out for all Sunday games. James- Doolittle. who lives in block 76, Grandview, is a real fan. He not only takes in the games, but is observ ant of conditions and has now come forward with a suggestion not a knock. Mr. Doolittle believes that the park was laid out wrong and suggests that the grandstand and bleachers should have been erected hi the southwestern corner of the field instead of the northwestern. It would be easy to remedy this, but It would be asking too much to nave it done this year. Still, it would be well to keep it in mind for another season. There will be another season for El Paso fans are for the 'new order' and league ball is going to stick. We are not discouraged in spite of a start that left much to be desired." Mr Doolittle appends a sketch of how he would rearrange the park. He will be glad to know, however, that larger and better grounds for the 1918 season are already being lined up and that the present stands are being so built that they may be moved in sections to the new location, which Is even closer to the heart of the city than the pres ent park. Jim Brown isn't a bit discouraged by the way luck has been against the old Bueblos n the series at Phoenix. In a letter to the sporting editor, he says that he is still smiling. By "UBCKV Braabear srot hurt Sunday and this has demoralixed the youngsters. Have Sport1 MeXurdo joining the team Sat urday and possibly another 'old head' Infielder.

T4oks as though we will draw well in Tucson as soon as we get some warm weather. Have n. sale started already on Callan. ray young catcher. He Is the beet looking young backstop I have ever seen. Has a fine dim and you can net er get cast him." Brown closes with a request for In formation as to whether McCloskey will consider a deal for Nig Purine, the local infielder. With Tucson braced up, there will be a great race. Douglas Is strength ening and XeCloskcv has lines out for one more man. When these reinforce ments reach the circuit, there will be six well balanced clubs. Working them out on a point basis, I would figure the relative strength of the clubs at the present time as follows, giving the full points to the leading team. Las Cruces, 106: Phoenix. 95. EI Paso, HI. Tucson. $0. Albuquerque, ST; Doug las, so. uougias is admittedly weaker ( than any other club at the present time, but Quigiey nas men enroute woo will put his Jeaai right in the race. First base and the pitching box are the weak spots with the locals: Albu querque appears to have a hard hitting but only fair fielding aggregation Tucson's weakness has been the in field, but Brown is strengthening that. AH the teams are particularly strong in catchers. Jack Bliss looks to be the class of the backstops, but Callan, o' Tucson: Lynn, of Phoenix, and Toots Bliss, of Las Cruets, are all above the average. Kraft, of Douglas, hasn't begun to show his real class yet. but ho should be a dandy. TtaedeX of Al buquerque, was one of the leaders with the Union association, and may develop into a champion. The league schedule calls for six games a week hereafter and t ere will be games every day except Mondays. unless the managers get togther and arrange for a postponement Fridays. The schedule calls for six and not five games a week. - Las Cruces finishes its series here on 8unday and will then go to Albuquer que, while the Douglas team will come here.

Now that the presence of three great British players and possibly two more is assured for the American open golf championship, the leaders in golf hero are doing some dose figuring. It will take close figuring, too, to calculate how the American representatives are going to best Vardon, Ray and Dun can, while if Braid and Taylor are added. Uncle Sam will have to hustle some more. When the players gather on the links at Baltusrol next month, our hopes will be pinned to Francis Ouimet and Chick Evans among the amateurs and George Low. MacDonald bmith and Walter Hagen of the professionals. Of course, there is always the chance that some new star may burst into bril liancy, as did Ouimet at Brookline in 1913, but stars don't burst very often. Katnrally Ouimet, the national ama teur champion, is the one most favored ts win at Baltusrol. He knows what It means to go through a hard cham pionship, and his game is undoubtedly 25 percent stronger than, when he triumphed over Vardon and Ray in 191. The Young national tiUe holder knows the Baltusrol course welL In faet, after the Lesley cup matches last fall he pronounced on the Jersey links as one of the best he ever played on. The other amateur choice Is Chick Evans of Chicago, whom both Vardon 594 5851 J ItmLam Want -JE? WINE at- dU Bottle Any Kind of LUNCH GOODS Call is eevi fHHH the and Ray, after their visit, termed the greatest golfer in the United btates. Evans, master of every club, seems to lack something that prevents him win ning at big tournaments. No one has ever been able to diseoTer lust what this shortcoming really is. Time and again Evans, after a wonderful start, will finish poorly and just fall short of first place. Or he may have one bad round that will ruin his chances. Some day. though, the western cracK in going to play eren golf throughout the entire tournament, and when that time comes no one is going to finish before him. Possibly Baltusrol may be the place where this will happen. Of the professionals, ilacDnald Smith, recently of the Oakmont flub, is regarded as having the best chance of winning the open title. Smith Is now a greater golfer than hl famous brother Aleck ever was and Aleck ad mits this himself. MaODonald Smith captured the open metropolitan title at Scarsdale last year and he never ex ceeded 73 In any one round. He Bad a fine opportunity of winning the na tional tournament at Chtce.goswhen sickenss forced his retirement from the tournament. Then comes after Hagen. the youth ful holder of the open title, one of those brill-ant golfers who can be expected to give the visiting Britons a shook on the links. Then, at last, we come to George low. Put the Baltusrol veteran in ft championship away from his homo club and he probably wouldn't finish with the leaders Low. on his home course, however, is a tough opponent for any one. A deep student of golf, the vet eran knows every little hazard and roll of the greens.
