TENNIS GOLF TRACK Highlanders vs. The Indians Thursday, Friday and Saturday HUMPHRIES PITCHES FIRST NO HII GAME OF SEASON; SECOND SINCE WHO LAKELAND Glher Being Against Jacksonville Last Year— Fourth No-hit Game Since Organization of the League—Frazier of Orlando Against Lakeland and Hall of Lakeland Against Tampa Twirling Other Two Bort Humphries, dean of the Lakeland pitching staff, broke into the baseball Hall of Fame for the second time in two years, when he pitched his second no-hit game yesterday afternoon against the Islanders from Daytona, his first, no-hit game being turned in last season against the aggregation from Jacksonville. Despite the fact that Humphries was scored on, the game was masterful in its every detail and the “grand old man” of the Florida State League deserved a shut out, which he would have gotten had not Bud Gilson booted one at the wrong time. The game was not perfect insomuch as Bert passed two and hit one batter, however, be that' as it may, it is deserving of all the good things that are being said about it. A no-hit same is the ambition of all pitchers and an ambition that is sel dom realized, but to accomplish the t'e<st twice ift as many years is, indeed, beyond the ordinary and is a record held by precious few pitchers in any league since the beginning of baseball in America, some fifty-odd years ago. There were thirty-three hatters to face Humphries, two being given bases on balls, one licit hit in the ribs, one Gilson put on when he bob hied and the other on an error by Humphries himself. In six of the nine innings the visitors were retired in order, seven going out by the strike out route, five on flies to the outfield and the other fifteen on easy chances to the infield. The visitors were absolutely help less before the grand pitching of Humphries all the way and were pre sented with their lone tally in the fourth frame. Francis, first up, whiffed at three and McGee was an easy out, Gilson to Harbison. Shannon and Res co were both given free tickets to first base and when Wood hit to Gilson who fumbled and then threw wide of first base. Shannon counted. Rymer made it three down by grounding to Kowalski. In the iiftli inning Munn was given a life at first base when Humphries messed his grounder up, and he proved to be the only Islander to reach first base from then on as the side was retired in order in the remaining innings. The locals did the usual thing and salted the ball game away in the fiist frame, which is a mighty commend able liabit they have acquired of late. Cusack, who was Manager Martin’s choice for the pitching assignment, and who has been one of the hardest pitchers to beat that Lakeland has encountered the past two seasons, got in hot water at the beginning of things. Gladu beat out a slow roller to Shannon at short and Kowalski ad vanced him a station with a sacrifice. Harbison delivered himself of a mighty two base wallop in left field and Frenchie counted. Stewart fol lowed the manager’s example and doubled to the same location counting Harbison.

IN THE REALM OF SPORTS GERALD FROEMKE, Sporting Editor . _ . . .a & A . • aaaaTaAAaa a a a * - AA.A A and Stewart was trapped and finally run down, Johnson legging it around to third base while the chase was on, and there he died as Smith’s grounder to Fgancis was handled in time to retire the catchenrightfielder at first. The game, from this stage up to the seventh, when the last Highlander market was pushed over, became a real pitchers’ battle, Cusack retiring the locals without a hit, and only per mitted three runners to reach first base, two on bases on balls and the other on a fly to right field which McGee dropped after a short sprint. In the seventh the locals counted the final score of the game. Gilson flew out to left field as did Schubert, Rym er robbing Schubert of a three base wallop when he speared iiis line drive with his gloved hand. Humphries sin gled to short left field as did Gladu. Humphries being held at second. Ko walski hit one at Resco which took a funny bounce and Whitey was safe at first on a play that could have been called either way. With two down and the bases drunk, Cusack lost the location of the plate and forced in Humphries when he walked Harbison. Stewart was up, and there is no more dangerous hitter in the league with the runners on, and-the stands clam ored for a house-cleaning wallop. Bon nie failed to deliver, being an easy out to Cusack to Resco, and the scoring for the day was over. This afternoon we have as our guests George Stovall and his gang from Jaytown. Turn out, fans, and let's give “Smiling" George a real honest-to-goodness welcome, one of the kind that has made Lakeland famous. Besides, we want ami must have all three of these games and some good rooting from the side lines and the stands will help a whole lot.

HOOKS AND SLICES. The golf season is on in full blast in the north. The Long Island championship has just been played and Howard Maxwell, Jr., a compara tive outsider as far as the dope went defeated a field of metropolitan dis trict stars. There is perhaps no game which is' a greater leveler than golf. When trying to pick a winner of a golf championship it is well to keep in mind Mark Twain's advice (is it Mark’s) to young men about to marry, “Don’t.” That is what makes golf the really great game it is and applying it personally, every one who plays has a sneaking ambi tion to play the course in par or one or two above. We note that the Western Coif As sociation has restored the stymie rule. Well, stymies don’t mean anything in our young life, do they, Bill? Bill Skipper says that he is going to get snowshoes to use on No. 2 and 3 holes. A red ball might Help some. Dr. J. 1). Griffin has offered a valua ble cup to be competed for annually, the member winning the champion ship three years to retain the cup permanently. C. E. Todd, W. W. Chase, J. Bates and G. W. Proemke foursomed at Tampa yesterday. The Rocky Point course was the one punished and from reports, a stirring time was had by all. 36 holes were played and the genial Clint Todd and Jerry Bates put up an excellent brand of golf. The Hardware King got a pair o£ 89s, and Bates got a 90 and atr 88. - On the last 18, Todd went out in 47 and Bateac in 48. The last nine was for blood and ulien the smoke cleared away Bates had a 40 atjd Todd a 42. Which is excellent golf on any course. Oh, yes! Bill Cftase and Gerald Froemke also played. Civil war golf. The U. S. G. A. has announced the list of eligibly players for the Nation al Amateur championship which is to be played at Brookline, Mass., Sep tember 4 to 9. Only one Florida golfer is eligible, one A1 Ulmer, of Jacksonville. The local golfers who competed at Orlando remember MM With the increased interest that is being manifested In golf throughout the stare, the improved piay and the fact that the game can be played- all year round should increase our list of cligibles. Some day the Lakeland Country Club may be represented. ‘‘Who can tell,” as "Silent” Benford would say. j|l Harold Fitzhugh. of .Vineland, N.
