Reds Drop Two Soft Ball Result* I On "the Trail" j OF SPORT ',,--".··» vv;(h Dick Cun»ell» """" There is a growing suspicion, prettv well fomried incidentally, that "the Hamilton Lindens have the best base ball club m the: In- State league, composed ot Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky semi-pro cutfiis. The lindens, playing home games in Hamilton practically every Sunday, have been unde- defeited in ten contests this year. One of these games was »n exhibition affair. Another exhibition joust was a tie. Paced by L. D. Grceley, southpaw pitching star, the Lindens have swept through all Tri-Stato opposition and have defeated almost all of the top notch clubs with the exception of Mt. Washington, Tri- 8tate league champions of 1930. But what we started out to say was that the Lindens and Mt Washington tangle here Sunday in what stacks up as the most important game of the season for the locals. Already established as pretty strong favorites to cop the 1931 title, the Lindens will further enhance their chances by dishing out a wallop to Mt Washington's championship chin. On the other hand a victory for Mt. Washington will pretty well tew up things and make the chaeo a free-for-all once again. Mt. Washington, las tasted defeat once this year, Bond Hill turning the job. Bond Hill, incidentally, is a team defeated by a close score 'here several weeks ago by.the Lindens. In addition to more than holding their own against Tri-Stato opposition, tbe Lindens' management is apparently making an honest effort to give Hamilton some high class Sunday baseball. Every man on the team is a local product. The manager is an old held of Hamilton baseball and the team's backers are solely from Hamilton. If any Hamilton baseball team ever deserved support it is the Lin- 'dens and baseball fans who wander to other pastures for their Sunday uport are doing the Lindens an nn- justice if they do not give them A tumble. It has been a long time since Hamilton has had a, baseball championship of any worth and this year seems to present the big chance. Odd circumstances are remarkable for their downright consistency in popping up at golf tournameuts. Tp in Columbus today, two youngsters, both from Dayton, tangle in tho finals of the Ohio State Amateur tournament. They are Bob Kepler and Scotty Reston. Nothing rather iirportant in those bare facts but -- Kepler is the No. 1 man of Ohio State's golf team and Keston is the No. 1 man and Captain-elect of the University of Illinois' golf team. That makes it a coincidence, for sure and certain. CLARKS AND Y CONTINUE TO SET PACE IN NATIONAL SOFT BALL LOOP GIANTS**JI*N*XE*D *IN ?URSUiT*bF^FAST STEP'PING CARDINAL TEAM * * ·«=» Squads To Meet Next Week With Title At Stake Things worked out nicely in the National Soft Ball leaguo Thursday night, pointing for another crucial battle nest week between Clarfcs and the V. M. C. A. Both teams wou their scraps last night and will go into battle against each other next Thursday night with three- victories and no defeats chalked up as their records for the second round. Clarks won the first round when they won all their games, defeating the Y in the most important one. Scores last night were: Olarks B; Imfelds 2. Y. M. C. A. 10; First Ward 9. Champion 12; Wente Elec. 0. N. E. Turn. 11; Becketts 4. Both the Y and Clarke, however were pressed to win. . Clarks went into the eighth inning against Ini- t'elds trailing by 2 to 1 but the league leaders put on a concerted rally and when the emoke of the fatal eighth had died away, Clarks were leading 5 to 2. The Y-Firet Ward Cigar scrap as a nip and tuck affair with tho 0-9 result in doubt until the final ut. Ogg, of the Champion Coated ine, turned in tho best pitching ex- ibition of the evening when he set \ r ente Electric down with four hits, or a shutout victory. North End Furniture easily dis- oserl of Beckette. Following is the league standing: DAYTON COLLEGE YOUTHS PLAY FOR CHAMPIONSHIP IN BUCKEYE GOLF FINALS In addition, however, Reston got to the finals yesterday by whipping Johnny Florio, team mate of Kepler on the Ohio State varsity links quartet. Two weeks ago Kepler and Florio tangled in the semi-finnls of the national inter-collegiate golf tournament ut Chicago. Kepler won and went on to be beaten in finals by Dunlap, Princeton repeat er for the title. Reston was enterei ;'n the college meet, hut didn't ge very far. Now to make the picture complete, Kepler should step out today and defeat his fellow townsman, and incidentally obtain a share of revenge for Flo. rio's defeat.

Columbus, 0., July 10 (ff)--The itials of the state amateur golf hauipionship today took on an in- c-rcollegiatc all-Dayton hue. Scotty Reston, Dayton, captain- Icct of tho University of Illinois .If team, will match drives over he Wyaudot club course with Bob -Cc-pler, Dayton, No. 1 player on the )hio State university niblick squad. The Daytoninns won their rights o the filial round by triumphing in wo of the most bitter contests ever vritten in Ohio golfing annals. Reston squared off against Johnny .'lorio, the tournament favorite, in he semi-final and was conceded an utsido chance to win--a chance hat changed to a remote possibility vhen Florio went oue up at the third lolc. Undismayed by the odds Heson stuck to his sticks and with a Jghty rally squnred tho match on he twelfth, went oue' up on tho fif- eenth and then captured the match wo and one on the seventeenth. Qreen Tights Hard In the lower bracket match, Keper took on Therpn Green, the boy .·ho eliminated Glenn Bishop, the de- ending champion, Wednesday, and lespitc the fact that Green had )luved consistent golf, the Ohio jta'te star was figured an easy vic- or by almost everyone -- except rcen. Not only was the gallery surprised mt Kepler was as well, as the Co- umbus boy continued his steady game, taking Kepler to the eighteen ;recn where he "blew up" after his * 'cond shot had hit a tree.

Par Takes Ride As Stars Click In Canada Open Toronto, Ont., July 10 (VP).-!rack golfers of five nations, led by Percy Allies of Berlin, sought to give old man par another lacing in the Canadian Open Golf championship today. AlliFs came home late in the afternoon with 67 in the first round of tho open yesterday to lead the field by a single stroke. Ten other scores that fettered par of 72 were hung up at the Misstsanga club. Ailiss, a lute starter, rammed home an IS foot putt for a birdie three on the home green to gain the lead by a stroke from three United States aces, Tommy Armour, defending champion, Walter Hagen and Wiffy Cor. A stroke back of this trio was Johnny Farrcll o£ Mamaroneck, N. Y., who put together 16 four.~, two threes and a deuce for his 69. Cox played the new ball of United States rules. The others used tbe old heavier imd smaller ball permitted in Canada. Tied rad a poi for seventh place are Art Con- .nd Y. Ellis, 17 handicap, 7 1-2 ints and J. Purdy and W. Parrett, IS handicap. Schuster and Castator, 35 handicap, have 5 points along with C. N. Teaff and J. C. Calhonn, 14 handicap. The team of Conner and C. Huher, 38 handicap, has failed to tally a point.

THt UfT The power of the put seems to be the deciding factor in our national and international golf meets. Tomriy Artnour took possession of the British Open title on the last green with nn IS-foot curving putt. Now it is Von Elm who lengthened the battle for the United States national open with two putts to keep him in the running. Von Elm's two putts to tie were as important as the two ho missed, back early in the running, for wins. Great putters and the ability to 'recover from the deep rough or traps are champion golfers. Bobby Jones, the greatest of putt e"! 1 , is in turn the greatest of golf- '·ii!. When they are dropping he is scoring. In the national open at Columbia country club, back in 1921, Bobby Jones took a 77 for one round. In that round he had eight three-pnti greens. , With only two putts to a green he could have had an easy 69 tha 1 early in such an event as a nationa Spen. It was nftcr this round tha ~ .'"ones began to realize the impor L taLCe of tho putt to winninj tional and international titles. His form today is a result o. that long and hard study to beat his opponent, and score on the Any one of the first 10 players in the recent national \open will tell you he lost Lis chances for tbe national title on tho greens, the direct result of bad putting. It has been proven time and arjain that the longest drivers in the world are helpless to win if the ball is not dropping, or even com- nig close to the cup. 46 .16 AB.

(Associated Tress Sports Writer) Things are not looking so bright For John McGraw's New York Giants, despite the fact they have managed to cling to second place in the National league by a few percentage points. Misfortune has dealt the- polo grounders a sjbries of body blows lately, just when the fighting appears to be getting good. The latest jolt to the team's pen-, nant hopes camo yesterday, when Freddio Lindstrom, who rapidly was ', proving himself as great a right : fielder as he was a third baseman in other years, broke a small bone in ' his left instep. Prospects are he will be out for three weeks or a. month. Hughio Critz, the club's rcirular second baseman, has been on the bench for several weeks. , Braves Cop Again Before he was carried from the field yesterday Lindstrom had hit a home run and "a single to start tho Giants n their way toward a 9 to 3 victory over the Phils. The wiu · could not have come .at a better time, as the boisterous Brooklyn Robins \ were taking the Boston Braves, 6 to 2, behind Watson Clark's fine pitching. The Giants still had a three point lead over their rivals for second place today. Notwithstanding their victories,' both clubs lost ground in their pursuit of the Cardinals, who racked, down on the Cincinnati Reds twice, 3 to 1 and 9 to 1. The Pittsburgh Pirates continued to be tough on their homo grounds, making it two straight over the am-|| bitious Chicago Cubs, 4 to 2. It wasj^ their sixth victory in seven starts. '^ Pick Up On A's Washington managed to pick up a full game on the Athletics by slaughtering the Boston Red Sox, 14 to 1, while the leaders were losing their opener by Yankee stadium 9 to 4. Joe Cronin, brilliant Senator shortstop, pounded a pair of Boston pitchers for a home run and two singles, driving in six runs. 'Lefty" Gomez, slender Yankee southpaw, turned in his second straight victory over the champion Athletics, allowing Connie Mr.ek's . sluggers only three hits in the first seven innings. Lou Gchrig featured tho winners' attack with his twenty- first home run and a double, driving in five scores. TWo members of the University of Pennsylvania's mound staff for tho past season made their major league debuts during tho afternoon. Al Masters pitched the ninth inning for Washington and allowed only one 1 hit. while Big Jim his former teammate,' Peterson, twirled a hit- 1 . less inning for the Athletics. Vic Frasier pitched airtight ball n the pinches to give the Chicago. 1 Vhite Sox a 3 to 0 victory over the Cleveland Indians. Frasier left 14. Indians stranded.
