It was played firt at St. Andrew In 188, when Horace Hutchinson won, as he did the next year also at Hoylake, beating John Ball, Jr.. by 1 up. Ball won In 1883 and hs was again successful In 1890, 192, 1894 and 1899. To win five times stamps Ball's fame as a golfer, and. although he mads the South Africa campaign In which Lieutenant Fred Talt lost his life.

' not preoeded by a qualifying score round as In this country, and only in 1896 was the final extended to thirty-six holes. The other rounds are of eighteen holes. It will be noticed that the tournament Is held at but five links and the five clubs manage the affair. There has been grum bling on this account for years throughout goking Great Britain, particularly since the upbuilding of so many fine links about London and In Ireland, but the old order changeth not.

Will Anderson and Aleck Bmlth, when they went over for the open cham pionship of 1905, said that traps were placed to catch a straight drive of 260 to t80 yards. They did not endorse the changes, for they often forced a player to hold himself In on the tees and to put ac curacy above all else. Tet the consensus Cf opinion I that Bt. Andrews Is the model testing green of the world. "On It," writes a golfer, "other courses are more or less inouldefl. and even the names and char acter of many of It hasarda are familiar to hundred of golfer who have never Visited the old gray city by the ea." When Travis Won tho Cop. While the Oxford and Cambridge so ciety's team had almost a clean sweep In matches when here In 1903. so many of our boat men won In Individual matches on oc casion that th "class" of British golf ceased to be a bugaboo. This was one causa of a great American entry at Sand wich In 1904. In the party were Travis, Bysrs. Horstman. John Moller.

AUTO CO., AT INTERCOLLEGIATE MEET Competitors of Colleges in Their Traok and field Annual Gamei. SWIFT AND STRONG WILL COME TOGETHER Cornell Is Not expected to Win Championship This Year Penn sylvania Strong and Bo Is Michigan. What with Pennsylvania and Cornell fighting hard for Intercollegiate athletic supremacy, with the chance that Michigan, Princeton, Amherst, Dartmouth, Bwarth moro,' Columbia, Lafayette and others, not to mention Yale and Harvard, will cut deep Into their points, the coming track and field championships are perhaps more uncertain than they hav been for some seasons. It Is not so long ago that many persons were conceding everything to Pennsylvania, especially the Pennsylvan lans. They pointed out that Cornell's vic tories In 1905 and 1906 wer chargeable mostly to strength, not to say a monopoly of strength, In the distance running events. The Cornell track team was not wall bal anced' was the contention of the Quakers. Pennsylvania having such a well balanced track team, was logically therefor the champion of 1907. Nothing will tell better than the games next Friday and Saturday at Cambridge who was right and who was wrong In the preliminary estimate. It does seem, how ever, that Pennsylvania Is not right now, aa strong as the earlier predictions and statements seemed to show. There Is a growing feeling that whoever wins will do so not by the grace of a well balanced team necessarily, but because the points will be so distributed that a preponderance of strength In half a dozen competitions will be enough to account for victory. Because of 'his feeling a great many persons are coming back to the stage, where thev be lieve that Cornell Is going to win for the third time. How they can bring this to fit In with the figures they do not say. Bid Three Almost One. It has been a long time since Harvard, Yale and Princeton wer so nearly negli gible quantities In an intercollegiate track and field meeting. That Is not to say that there will not be point winners from th three Institutions, but that the total of their winnings Is not likely to land any one of the three universities a winner of the point trophy. Indeed lt seems that Am herst and Dartmouth are likely to be better off than Harvard or Yale. Little Is to be gleaned from the results of the dual meets this year among the col lege teams. For one thing. In most cases tha weather was so unfavorable that time performances, generally a helpful criterion, were of no value. On the other hand, lt Is something to know that Cornell defeated Princeton, that Pennsylvania defeated Coluribla, that Harvard defeated Dart mouth, that Williams defested Dartmouth and Dartmouth defeated Amherst. The most that these meets establish Is the fact that such and such a man Is bet ter than some others because of thoae whom he has beaten. In the cases where compared performances are the only things to go by there Is not much basis for valu able comparison. However, taking what Cornell did to Princeton, the score there being 71 to 46, and the Yale-M Ptinoeton-60 result, there can be small doubt that Cor nell la generally better than Yale. Harvard 4utpolnted Dartmouth very easily, the score there being 62 to S3. Amherst did as well practically, the score against Dart mouth being 82 to 44. In addition to things like this, lt Is well to remember that Brown has a membership In the Intercollegiate Amateur Athletic Association of America and several good men hav been represent ing th Providence Institution this year. Added to all this lt -Tnist be remem bered that Michigan comes east in hopes of Justifying the Institution In leaving the western conference and that seversl of tho men who will compete here are of the highest class and Justly, to be feared T-niran nil In all the situation certainly Is complicated and the prophet who dares Is likely to be all wrong In the end. Too many trifles operate against a track ath lete In the very act of competing to be able to base predictions on what he has done. I.nentlon of I lkelv Wieners.

Johns Hopkins, Lafayette, Michigan. Pennsylvania. Princeton. Swarth more. Syracuse. Willlama and Yale ar apt to fuiilsh competitors whose presence will be noted on the point tsble. Tber are seven other Institutions members In the as sociation. In the sprint rsces Cornell Is hampered by the fact that R. W. Keeler, the former t'nlversity of Michigan man. Is not In sny condition to compete. He pulled out a tendon some time afro and he will not tsk part In the championships. Cornell being, as usual, weak In the sprints, hss no man to take Keeler's place. Sumner Rulon Mlller and Gamble, the Prlncetonlans. are rather formidable sprinters.

Connors won the furlong against Yale In somewhat slower time, 244 sec onds. That was chiefly because of the heavy track. Rulon-Miller, however, was able to do 10H seconds on the Btma track for 100 yards, so that he looks very good indeed. Al Copland should be able to train sprint ers If he can do nothing else. Rulon-Mlller will have to meet Cartmell and Whltham of Pennsylvania In this rsce In the Inter collegiate games. Both are undoubtedly 10-second men, as Is Rulon-Mlller. Both have th prestige of former good perform ances In the, championships, Cartmell hav ing won both the races last year, with Whltham second. It Is generally conceded that the race Is to be between Rulon-Mlller and Cartmell. Half Mile the B1t Ttaee. The half mile run Is expected to be a race of races. In fact, many persons look forward to It as the best of the final day. If Taylor goes, which Is likely, he will be pitted agnlnst two men of undoubted abil ity. Ell B. Parsons of Yalo, who won In 1904 and 1905, and who holds the Intercol legiate record ot 1 minute 56 seconds for the distance, will be seen In the race. Parsons was away last spring at Athens, and when he returned was In no condi tion to race. Tho winner of last year, J. C. Carpenter of Cornell, Is out of the In stitution, so that as far as he Is concerned the field Is free' and open. H. P. Ramey of Michigan, who Is cred ited with all sorts of performances, all very fast. Is going to be seen to advantage here If Keen Fltzpatrlck knows anything about It. He has had tonallttla, however, and lt Is a big question If he will be able to get Into the games. If he does come here It will be sign enough that he haa recovered, and on that basis he Is expneted to do things. Remey has done 1 minute 68 3-8 seconds for the half mile out of doors. A performance away under that had been credited to him Indoors; in fact, lt was under 1:55. Whether that was reliable timing of course cannot be stated, but It may be depended upon that Ramey Is fast. Maloney may run In the half mile for Michigan, but that Is doubtful. He Is likely to go Into one of the longer races. Leaving aside these three men, who all are fine performers, lt must be remembered that the other ' colleges have some half mtlers. Cornell haa F. B. Townsend, who haa placed In the Intercollegiate champlon shlps for the last two years, and Is no mean athlete. He can go better than 1 minute 59 seconds. Chandler and Lewis of Cornell wero In the meet against Princeton snd they finished first and third, Townsend being second. Lewis was placed In the In tercollegiate mile run last year and Is a very sturdy performer. It must be kept In mind that If It Is true that all Cornell has lies In the dlstsnce. In the half mile the Ithacans should begin to show. It does not appear likely that any one college will have very many placed men In the half mile race. In fact, although Tay lor of Pennsylvania Is backed up by Has kins and Jones, he Is likely to be the only Quaker placed. Yale has Tllson besides Parsons. Cornell has tha three good men named. Columbia has several good half rollers, aa the reault of the Intercollegiate two-mlle relay championship showed Saunders Is good for close to 2 minutes and Hoyns Is another fast man, although he may go for the mile. Zlnk of Columbia, If fit, will do well In the Intercollegiate half mile. It will be remembered that he was a leader not far from home In the race last year and that he did not win was due to hi poor Judgment rather than to lack of ability. Jennings of Dartmouth used to be a first rate man. Baker of Swarth more can boat 2 minutes handily and he will have to lie looked after. Van Brunt la Harvard's brat man, next to Younir. Judging from these men the quality should be very high. Hurdles to Be Interesting. The hurdle rsces, too, ar likely to be full of upsets, literal and otherwise. It I not so long since that McCulloch of Penn sylvsnls wss regarded as a sure wlnnei of the higher hurdles. Now nothing Ii' si're. Shew of Dartmouth has been a prominent contender. In the Pennsylvania relay games he won the special hurdle race In 15 seconds, with Hubbard of Am herst last year's ehsmplon second and Mc Culloch third. In the Harvard dual meet he again did second, heating Rand of Harvard without much trouble. But In tho Dartmouth-Amheret meet he was de. feated by Hubbard In 154 seconds. He tripped on the first hurdle and lost his stride, but recovered snd rsced side by side with Hubbard to the eighth hurdle, where the bigger man drew away and won by three yards. Hubbard has been a consistently fast man over the low hurdles, too. In the Dartmouth mset he ran In K seconds, and as he won both hurdle race snd the 220-yard run. he cam near qualifying In the Garrela clsss, which brings the thought around to that weatem phenomenon. He has done 15 seconds for the high hurdles, too, and has run very fast over the low hurdle. He ta confidently expected In the west to carry off the high hurdles first, but It looks ss If he would be hard put lo It to do that. There are many excellent performers In these two races. In the broad Jump Michigan expects to do well with Homer Heath, lt that athlete LANSING, MICH. MEM- recovers sufficiently from a strained ten don to come east. Heath has been leaping 23 feet or so In practice, and that will do some execution In the Intercollegiate game. Mayhew of Brown Is a fair broad Jumper and can do about 22 feet. Stephen son of Harvard I another very good per former. He can do better than 21 feet 9 Inches. Knox of Yale, champion last year better than 23 feet, has not gone back. Although he did no better In the dual meet with Princeton than 22 feet 2 Inches, he Is leaping In convincing form. Pennsyl vania Is not well provided In this event. Haydork Is about the bet man and his bent la short of 22 feet. Greene I not doing well In the leap, either. Cornell does not appear to have anybody much. 8lmons of Princeton won the dual meet with 21 feet 6 Inches, with Conners of Princeton second. Cornell's best man. Gould, was away back of that. Hurlbnrt, the Wil liams captain, can do in the neighborhood of 21 feet inches. Marshall of Yale, captain of the team and champion high Jumper last year, will have hi work cut out for him this time. R. L. Rossman of Cornell la a six-foot man, and there are others. Mofflt of Penn sylvania has done 6 feet. Marshall did 5 feet 10 Indies to win from Princeton. R. E. Bomers of Harvard and G. E. Roosevelt are the best that the Crimson has, and they are not particularly good. They can be beaten by 6 feet 10 Inches. If Michigan could use Patterson, Its freshman Jumper, he would do well. But he Is barred by the rules, so that his porformanc.es of better than 6 feet do not count. The high Jump does not rejoice In snch quality as do some other competitions. The shot-put Is supposed to be going to John Garrets. In the recent Interclass meet at Ann Arbor Garrels, who has done better, put the shot 45 feet. Krueger of Swarth more haa done almost as well. Stephenson of Harvard, the champion, mentioned as a broad Jumper did 42 feet 4 Inches against Dartmouth. Pennsylvania apparently has no one who Is good. Ryan of Columbia Is too much taken up with rowing to com petn In this event. Yale's best man Is hardly good enough to do much unless h gets out of the 41-foot class. If lt comes to a showdown and Garrels keeps his form he should win. Cornell nnd Mlehlaran. Cornell feara that Michigan will Interfere with the plans of the Ithacans to carry off the championship for the third season. Tbe Ithacans admit that Michigan Is strong where they are strong, and by cutting Into each other that way will make It easier for Pennsylvania to win. It Is not to be forgotten that Michigan may win. Here Is what a Michigan man says of th chances: "Keene Fltspatrick says that thirty points will win the big flag, and fig uring on dope Michigan ought to come very near hitting that mark. Stewart can run a shade better than 10 seconds, but can not travel fast enough to make the flat play. He may get a place In the 100-yard and 220-yard dashes. In the hurdles the east has always outclassed the west, but In Johnny Garrels tho men on tha slope of the Atlantic will find someone who will give them a run for ths medal. The De troit boy looks good for one of th firsts In the barrier races and a place In th other. He has put the shot 45 feet 7 inches, and he Is not going to fall to score In that event. "The east Is strong In th quarter-mil event, although Davey Is fast he may have trouble to place. If Ramey recovers from his' attack of tonsllltls he will be heard from In the half-mile. Michigan cannot see anybody else but Cole In the one-mil and Rows In the two-mil races, although Cor nell lays great claims to the distance runa. Heath Is counted on for something in th broad Jump, and French, who is leaping about 22 feet, will back him up. Schults is looked 'on for something in the ahot-put. Maloney should do well In any racs he en ters. Michigan looks good on paper for uuriy-mree points and the outlook for a victory Is therefor cheering." IllsT Parses fur Harness Raeera. NEW YORK, May 26. During the trot ting and pacing season of 19u7 It Is esti mated that more than M.OfO.OOO will be dis tributed In purses and stakes among har ness horsemen by the various racing or ganizations and fair asuoclatlons of ths country.

WILL CONTINUE AS RESIDENT MANAGER Board of Directors Decides to Oat Good Man for Field svad Secure a. Team thai Will Win. PUEBI), Colo., May 24. (Special Tele gram.) At a meeting of the directors of the Pueblo Ball club tonight Frank 0 Selee resigned as active manager of th team. He gave aa his reason the condition of his health, stating that he did not feel like taking another trip east with the club. He will be retained as ljcal business man ager and adviser. , Tho directors will st once try to secure the services of some old, experienced player for the Infield to act as playing manager and telegrams were tent out to night in an effort to land such a man. A new pitcher is to be secured and an effort will be made to secure a first division team. Selee'a resignation takes effect June 1. From the fact that tha team has been In last place for the last three years (counting the period It was the Colorn. Springs team), there has been a great of dissatisfaction manifested among both ran ana airectors, ana wnw nil are now united on the Idea of spending money to put In a good team here, there Is general regret over the retirement of Sele from active sorvlce, as his ability has alwnya been appreciated in Pueblo. News of the enforced retirement from active management by Selee will be re ceived with general regret all over ths country, to every remote corner of which his fame as a great base ball manager extends, for lt will be taken as an Indica tion of his failure to regain, as much as was hoped, his falling health. It was only because of failing health that Selee ever left Chicago. His porsonal popularity al ways has made others anxious to sen Pueblo higher up, but the old veteran's hands hava been tied by a financial di rectorate more careful of expending money than getting a good team.
