Wright Dodez 'was playing Fritz McCulloch in the semi-finals for a trophy. His drive was short and he hit a long tall on the approach, The ball went among the branches of an app'e tree. The ball was finally, discovered, half imbedded in a big, mellow pip- pin, which had dropped into the crotch of one of the branches. Dodez elected to play the ball from Its lie. Climbing a tree, he hooked a leg over a limb, splatter- ed the apple all over tlie links, and his ball tore free and rolled to the edge of the green. He ran down a long putt and halved the hole.

She 'went to the left field fence for Davies' near-hom- er, made a swell peg to third, and Bruce was the plate on the relay. Bruce would have made it, but for a wooden leg. Miss Fay was using her noodle all the time. Twice she engineered plays to get men off 'third, and succeeded. Sang and Gorrill fell by the .wayside on these plays.
