The thai-go is made that ever since the Cleveland boy wrested the 122-pound title from Abe Attell' he has persistently dodged watches with the tough ones of his division, and "instead has picking up the soft money to be had in jousts with sec- ond raters. Johnny's friends say that the champion is being treated unfair- ly by the scribes.

Tip From Roger Bresnahan's Bat Breaks Bone in His Right Hand Making Golf Hole in One Try Extremely Rare Happening (By .1. G. Davis) ALBERTA'S PRIDE BEER IS A WHOLE- SOME PRODUCT OF NATURE. EARTH, SUN AND AIR HAVE-SUPPLIED THE IN-! GREDIENTS FOR A HEALTHFUL, INVIGOR- ATING DRINK. THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF BARLEY MALT AND HOPS IS USED IN MAKING THIS BEER. WE HAVE A STANDARD THAT INSURES THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF PUJRITY THE LETHBRIDGE BREWING AND MALTING COMPANY LIMITED [PHONE 554 j The diameter of a golf hole is inches, and eight oE them in a row would measure approximately a lineal yard, giving fi! boles for a square yard. Assuming that a putting green is 20 yards by SO, it would be possible to put about holes in that green So it can readily be seen that the odds against a player making a hole in one shot are tremendous. On the shorter holes of from 110 to 140 yards it is reasonable to suppose a fairly expert player will be able to land on a 20x20 greon, but even sup- posing be con id pitch hla ball within a .yard of the llaji, the odds would still lie something like Gl 1o 1 against his making the hole in one shot. Tbcrc arc thousands or clover play- ers who never have experienced tho thrill of putting a one on their sroro card. .1. II. Twoedlc, one of tbe pion- eer golfers ftf tiie west, played the sair.-a in England and this Country for over thirty years before be finally notched a one, that counting on the second hole at the. .Midlothian Coun- try club, which is 190 yards. With the odds so great against a single count it is remarkable that the tent has been performed four times within tho last few weeks in the mid- dle west. Playing against John D. Gady of Rock Island in the recent Transmls- sisslppi tournament at- Minneapolis, H. R. Morrlll of Omaha made the nth hole (130 yardal-on his tee shot. A little later Jim Donaldson, profes- sional, at the Glen View club of Chi- cago in a practice round with Norman Towne made the second hole, 225 yards, In a similar manner. A few days later at .the Idlewlld Country club of Chicago Willie Langford. the Yale player. In one, nnd in tho recent tournament, of Homcwood Coun- try club. Charles K. Thompso president of the Western Golf Asso- ciation, landed bis pitch for the ninth hole, 160 yards, in the cup. Fads and fancies of the golfers arc ns numerous as the superstitions of the baseball player, and many of them help to swell the Income of the professional. A well known Chicago veteran was found on the course one day with a rubber finger stall drawn over the edge of his putter because he had been putting; too strongly.
