The Sport Page TO SAVE MS Scotch Supply of "Cleeks" Like-Jy to Be Cot off on Account of War. American linksmen �who prefer iron  heads for their golf clubs manufactured in Scotland to the domestic j article will hare to conserve the stock I in hand if they are not to be left^wlth-out a niblick or a mashle fit to cut a decent sized dIvoL A great many of the Scotch cleekmakers tiave long since turned their forges over to the governmen't and are now engaged in hammering the �teel -which they formerly put Into golf club beads into stirrups and similar articles. According to those in the. business, shipments of Scotch-made "cleeka" have been coming in fairly regularly, but if the war should last that much longer it is just possible that the supply will cease altogether before another season rolls around. Experts Particular. Although to many one golf club Uead may look lust like the next, the expert has his likes and dislikes, and .there is a peculiar something about the Scotch-made iron head that makes it first choice. How it comes that th^ United States, the home of the steel industry, can not duplicate these heads is not the least peculiar part of the whole affair, but according to those who have handled them all their lives, the Scottish cleekmaker gets a certain doll finish to his iron heads �which they do not seem to be able to duplicate in this country. Whether it is in the steel or the method of working the metal even professionals can not say yet they can tell at a glance which is the homermade club head and which the imported article. Moreover, a great majority of the amateurs are partial to the Scotch-made .club head. Fire Did Not Ruin Them. That this is more than a fad was demonstrated to the satisfaction of George Loiv, the Baltnsrol professional, -when Are destroyed that club several years ago. Scattered throughout the lockers in the clubhouse and stored in Low's shop were many brands and grades of iron club heads. After "the fire the professional found among the ruins a mass of twisted Iron heads from which the shafts had been burned. Nothing was of any use to him but the heads, forged by a certain celebrated Scotch cleek maker, and these, although blackened and discolored by the smoke and heat, were Just as good as ever for golf. They had retained all their shape and h�irdness, and after a few burnishings one could scarcely tell that they had been.through a fire. But while the Scotch cleekmakers may le�d their particular branch of the trade-It is generally agreed among the professional golfers that the Amelican clubmaker turns out the best wooden club heads, both as to finish and general appearance. In this �way the honors of the golf club-making art are about evenly divided between the old world and the new. STER SUGGESTS New York Giants' Secretary Gives Pointers for Betterment of Sport.

IS.-Comment from the German newspapers circulated by the German �wireless service gives an interesting version of peace as the German wireless imagine it. All the newspapers of the country are in favor of such of President Wilson's points as freedom of navigation. The German idea of the freedom, of navigation is shown by the comment as two-sided." The Germans not only look forward to freedom of navigation in peace, but want the same freedom in war so that their -mercantile marine may escape the consequence of someone else controlling the sea. The boycott apparently fills Germany -with the greatest anxiety. Colonial qnestions also loom large in her plans. controlled by true sportsmen, in a i district.

"There should not be any deal that will even suggest the slave as between the player and owner. No player should even be sold by one club ' 10 another with the 'slave taint.' The player may be transferred," but there should be no angle to the deal in which the player is not treated with equity. "Many times in the past I have been of the opinion that players did not have full knowledge of cases in which they were personally interested. The player should have a thorough knowledge of any step he is asked to take and he should be informed considerately and carefully, so that he may enter into any transaction that affects his future as a player with his eyes wide open. "The baseball public should bo taken into the confidence of club owners and players. The public pays the bsse-ball freight, makes baseball possible, and is entitled to know what is going on.

"Your own correspondent" has been criticized for the unintelligible termination of the report of the special service on Sunday.
