I have been repeatedly asked what I consider the number of strokes that a first-class man golfer can fairly give to a lady of like class among her own sex. It is an inter esting question and while I have no exhaustive data on the subject, I think I have enough to at least es tablish a general line. . I have not had a special oppor tunity, to see women play, but last summer Robert Gardner and I played in a very interesting mixed four-ball match with Miss Alcxa Stirling and Miss Elaine Rosenthal, both noted players. I think that it was demonstrated in that match thnt the men led the women some 15 or 16 strokes. I was curious to sec where the extra strokes came in. It Alliance Legion to. Stage Fight Alliance, Neb., April 9. (Spe cial.) The second boxing event on the program of the Alliance post of the American Legion will take place April .21 at the roof garden stadium, when Joe (Wop) 'Flynn and "Young" Billie Papke, Denver light weights, meet in a 10-round bout. ' Papke won his way into the hearts of the fans here last month when he knocked out "Farmer" Mel Wyland in the first round of a scheduled six round battle, and local fistic enthu siasts, have been clamoring to, get him back with a really good man as his opponent, In ."Wop'' Flynn, fight fans say he will have a worthy adversary, and great interest is man ifest in the forthcoming battle. A list of good preliminaries and a semi windup event are also on the boxing card.

It was in this year the American league blos somed out as the second major. During the 22 seasons since then, only two have continued the strug gle, 'year in and year outj without a single break. These are Omaha and Des Moines. Sioux City and St. Joseph of the present personnel, also were charter members, but Sioux City dropped out in 1901, 1902. 1903 and for the second half of 1917 and St. Joseph quit from 1906 to 1909. After starting with the Jeague, winning the first pennant and then three others in 1911, 1912 and 1913, Denver w as ditched before the open ing of the season of 1918 because of the war. This season will be the first for the mile-high city since then. Many of the present generation to Mr. Jock I S 9" Mi ' , : -i f ( : J JT C7 is true their average drive was shorter, but many a man with no longer drive gets home without many extra strokes. On the ninth hole, I missed my drive somewhat, and then saw the difference. I used a mashie, and they used a brassie, and every one knows that an iron shot to the green is easier and surer than a wooden one. I think I discovered the secret the shots are chiefly made up on the second shot to the green. As a rule, women do not recover as well as men, neither do they play cut shorn with ths same ability. If a woman Is playing her brassie well, snd her run up shots and "cuts' are good, the man who gave her a half stroke a hols would he hard put. It Is easier to give nine strokes In H holes, than a half on every hole, but my rather limited experience lends me to be lieve that a first-class man can give a first class American woman player the half stroke, providing always that the course la a really tesilmt one. There are In this country plenty of "leveling courses" where no odds would be fair, but 1 feol that on a stiff course like Pine Valley, one could give ono stroke on 13 holes and win. a I say American players, because I .do not believe that a leading American or Ca nadian man golfer can give a leading British "Indy golfer" any very great odds. The British Ipdy golfer Is a great In stitution; .her strength, skill and industry almost beyond belief. 1 beliove this not withstanding the grand showing of the American women golfers on the occasion of Miss Cecil I.eitch's visit last-season. The superb playing of Mrs. "Fred Letts and Miss Marion Hollins can never be forgot ten. In 1911 a team of American ' women played In the British championship, at Newcaatle, County Down, and they did not have a chance. That same year I was at Stoke Peges, England, where a match was held between men and women, and the women won. There was the custom ary half a stroke a hole. A few years Ister Harold Hilton played In a very fa mous match with Miss Cecil Leitch. He gave her half a stroke a hole and was beaten 2 and 1. The courses played over were Walton Heath and Sunnlngdale. The quality of play of women on this side of the Atlantic Is approaching the standard of their British sisters, however. As the game growa In popularity with our women their standard of play Is higher. . (Copyright, 1922.) Western league fans may not know that this circuit has played ball in 19 of the leading- cities of the middle west. M inneapolis, St. Faul, Kan sas City, Milwaukee, now meriibers of the American association were Western leaguers a couple of dec ades ago. - Among the others who no longer belong are Peoria, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Topeka, Lincoln, Hutchin son, Joplin. - Des Moines, a second division club since the war, has won mode pen nants than anv other scoring in 1905 and 1906, 1909, 1915 and 1917, Denver is second best with its four championship clubs. Kansas City won two flags during the three years it raced in this cir cuit. In spite of its 22 attempts Omaha has scored only twice, the first time in 1907 and then again 1916. The accompanying table shows how the various clubs have fased from year to year. (Copyright, 15:;.) Parsons Will Ship Stable to Ak-Sar-Beii Meet .billiard woiultr, inrrt lieorge Huron II, Shifty. C.

Parson announced today that at the conclu sion 01 the Tijuana Hireling April J.I he will ship Ins (Mrnivc siring to Omaha. No sialilo at the track boasts of such combined speed as docs the house of l'aroiiN. He has some horse for a distance of ground, hut most of hi raring tools are live and si;; furlong home and the way they ran turn on is a caution. No horse man on the Tijuana track has had 1 more meteoric career than Parwus, It was not long ago that 1'arsons' colors were carried hy a singh standard-bearer and this was a iud named Montana flclle. She was a very ordinary sort, but proved the foundation of the now extensive string w hich this owner has acquired and which contains enough speed to win linn nurses on any man race track. Parsons ranks among the w in ning owners at this meeting. Good Winners. Included in his string are Huron II, Shifty, Sister Susie. Carrie Moore, C. A. Comiskey. Duly Fashion, Booncville, N'eg. Don Dodge and others. Hooncvillc and Don Dodge are his distance performers, while all the others like a sprint. Booncville and Don Dodge are two of the most consistent route runners here and have won more than their share of the races. Huron II has the honor of taking Motor Cop into camp and also that clever horse Mulciber, the latter being the winner of the $20,000 Coffroth handicap. Shifty is an ex tremely useful filly. She is by Iloneywood and shows a high turn of speed at five furlongs. C. A. Comiskey is one of the most con sistent horses ever racing in the west. Before purchased by Parsons this horse won a string of races for G. A. Getchcll and was scarcely ever out of the money. Duly Fashion is a horse of some whims and seems to do his best work on a sloppy track. Give him this kind of a course and he will take a lot of beating. Sister Susie is a mighty sweet mare. She is by Galveston and during the early part of the meeting here she won several purses for Parsons. There is fnot a "dead" horse in the t'arsons string and tliey should prove a formidable lot at Omaha. Owner Parsons will have the ser vices of the aggressive jockey, G. Williams. This elongated rider is a hustling reinsman and has the knack of getting his mounts away from the post in a hurry and never allowing them to loiter. Prdduct of West. Parsons has devoted most of his life to horses. He is truly a product of the west and the range. His daughter, Nellie Parsons, is a cham pion exhibition and trick rider and won signal honors at the Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days and the Pen dleton (Ore.) Roundup. She has been quite a figure here in galloping horses during their morning exercise and it's highly likely that Omaha fans will see the novelty of a pretty girl giving thoroughbreds their workouts. Horsemen at Tijuana are taking a keen interest in the Omaha meeting, which will be inaugurated on Tune 3. and it is expected that when the curtain falls at the border track on ApriL23 many owners of the better class horses will join the vanguard that will make the corn center their mecca for summer racing.

The Buffaloes did everything in their power to stave off the inevitable here Saturday hut the fates were not with them and the Wichita Falls Spudders nosed them out in the 10th inning, 3 to 2. That the Western leaguers wore defeated was in no way due to Her man, who parked one of Knadlcr's slants in the second round with one mau abroad and gave his mates a one run lead until it was thrown away bv CofTcndalftT in the eighth. The hurling on both sides was of the midseason variety, but Coffeu dalTer presented the home club with the tying run in the eighth and got himself into a hole in the Mth that he could not duck. He filled the comers in this round ai(d then had to face- a pinch l.iacr. who singled and brought in the winning run. The Buffaloes jumped into the lead in the second round whrn Grif fin singled down the third base line with one away and touched all the bags on Herman's drive over the left field fence. The Texas leaguers came back in the same canto and counted once after two men had been rcircd. The ! run was of the cheapest variety, but i counted nevertheless. Miller drove a single through tnc nox, wnicn bounded away from Manush, and when Griffin made a wild heave on the return Miller romped home un molested. The Spudders second run was a gift. It occurred in the eighth and two men had been retired once again. Schmidt was hit by one of Coffcndaffer's slants and he scored when the same man threw wild to first in an effort to catch him nap ping. Coffcndaffer hit Besche in the, 10th for a starter and the latter romped to third when Miller singled to right. Acting under orders, "Coffey" pass ed Sorey, but Manager Salm sent Frank Kitchens into hit for Schmidt and he crashed a single inside third, which sent Birch home with the winning tally.
