TIUH, 2.1 BOBBY JONES Atlantan, who snared the British nmnlniir (folf title in Scotland on Saturday the Amcrlcnn now holding all the leadtnjf golf crowns. BOBBY JONES HAS MOST GOLF TITLES CHICAGO, June 2.—Bobby Jones stands alone in the world of golf. His magic woods and irons have carried lim along paths where no other golfer ever has tread and the future holds only marches over familiar trails. When Jones defeated Rogers Wethered and captured the British amateur at St. Andrews he became a man apart from the rest of the golf world. The only man ever to win the world's four major golf championships and the first to capture ;en. Over a span of twenty odd years, John Ball, the great British star of other years captured the. amateur championship of his> native land eight times and the open once. Eight summers ago, Jones started on a whirlwind trail to overhaul the great old Englishman. He caught him on the trim slopes qf Winged Foot last June and passed him Saturday, on the slip^ pery greens of St. Andrews where the winds of the North sea howl endlessly. Four times the Georgian has been amateur champion of the nited States; three times he has'held the open title; twice the greatest of all fields bowed to him in the British open and now the British amateur—the last cham- piO'hship citadel to oppose his devastating shots—has fallen before his blows. At 28 Jones has broken every record of importance and with at least seven years more of fast competition remaining in his system, the Atlanta should achieve a record that will stand for some time. There have been rumors that Jones might retire from the champion field if successful in the bunkered arena this summer. But a firehorse does not turn a deaf ear to the alarm when released from'' the harness. ROARING SPRING WINS 4 TO 1 AS BIG LEE ELLENBERGER SHINES Roaring Spring won the fifth straight win of tha Bls.ir County Baseball league season on Saturday defeating Duncansville 4-i for the second time this season. The game was played on the Springs lot. Big Lee Ellenberger, Bedford cbun- tlan chucked for the leaders and he allowed but 4 hits, pitching one of the best games of the season. He turned back 12 batters on strikes. Lee missed whitewashing the Irontown team the lone run coming in the sixth. Jimmy Fredericks singled and was forced by Nick Kearney. Godfrey, singled to center and the return throw got away at third, Kearney scoring. George Hainley worked'for the Irontown team and while touched up for 11 hits he was classy in the pinches. The first real drive off him came in the third when Eillenberger connected for a home run. Baretown got 2 runs in the fifth a total of 5 singles being bunched in this round. In the eighth another run BLAIR COUNTY LEAGUE. Scores. . Claysburg 6, Wllliamsburg 5. Penn Central 7, Martinsburg 0. Roaring Spring 4, Duncansville 1. Standing;. W. L. Pet.

BILL TILDEN LICKED IN FINALS FOR TITLE AUTEUIL, France, June 2.—"Big Bill" Tilden's chances of being invited to become a member of the 1930 United States Davis cup team seemed unlikely today after the veteran American's defeat by Henri Cochet, France's greatest player, in the final of the French hard court championships. Tilden won the first set from Cochet and led 5-3 in tho second set Sunday when his game collapsed and the Frenchman turned the remainder of the match' into a near rout. The scores were 3-6, 8-6, 6-3, 6-1. Mrs. Helen Wills Moody, playing in her first major tournament since her marriage, retained the women's singles championship by defeating Helen Jacobs, Berkeley, Calif., in. the final, 6-2, 6-1. Mrs. Moody, who had her hardest match against Phyllis Mudford, English girl, in the third round, winning 6-2, 6-4, was hardly ever extended by Miss Jacobs. Champions for the 1930 French hard court tournament follows: Men's singles, Henri Cochet, France. Women's singles, Mrs. Helen Wills Moody, United States. Men's doubles, Henri Cochet and Jacques Brugnon, France. Women's doubles, Mrs. Moody and Elizabeth Ryan, U. S. Mixed doubles, William T. Tilden, U. S., and Cecilie Aussem, Germany. MAJOR LEADERS.

CHICAGO CUBS ARE UNFORTUNATE TEAM By tfOtttf B. FOSTEtt (Copyright, IB&oV'fty Alteftfla'Mirror.) NEW YORK, Jufle 2>~-Not since 1908 has there been a National league t£am more signally unfortunate than thev Chicago Cubs of the present season. By death, accident and Illness they have been seriously Weakened since, the 1930 campaign opened. To find a similar run of bad luck you will have to go back to 1906, When the Giants, with a seeming championship team, were wrecked by injuries to players. The accident to Rogers Hornsbjn star second baseman, which fractured his left ankle In the opening day of the Memorial day doubleheader in Chicago between 'the 'Cubs and the Cardinals, was x the crowning blow to a team that had lost its best winning jitcher of the current season by death only a day or so before. The Cubs, champions of their league in 1929, looked fit physically in their training camp and they rejoiced over the return to form df Gabby Hartnett, their leading catcher, who had been lost to them last season. But their troubles began when they came east from Catalina' island. Guy Bush, one of their most successful pitchers in 1929, fell and injured himself. Riggs Stephenson, slugging outfielder, developed a lame shoulder and w,as compelled to rest. Lester Bell, Who had been taken over from Boston to fill a big gap at third base, found something wrong wTth his throwing arm. Grimm, veteran first baseman, was out of the game for a while. Hal Carlson, winning pitcher, died suddenly. The heel gi'owth that had handicapped Hornsby in 1629 refused to yield to treatment, so that he was unable to play regularly. Now comes the accident that makes his return to the game uncertain—a matter of six weeks or more at best. The award to Hornsby aa the most valuable player of 1929 in his league waa to have been made today on the field. Exactly 'what effect this latest disaster to the Cubs will have on • the National league pennant race is something no one can estimate at present. The Cubs will fight and they have reserve material that is good, but they are losing Hornsby just when he was rounding into his best form, with the approach of the warm season. The management of the Cubs will probably seek to put through on.e or more^deals for new players. , POSTPONE GOLF MATCH.

Every man who works knows this is true W HEN a man works hard all day you only get his goat if you give him dolled up fodd— or a dolled up chew. He is hungry. He wants real food that he can sink his teeth into. And a chew of real tobacco. / That's why Mail Pouch is growing in popularity every day. It is all real tobacco. And all good tobacco—the best that gvows. A special Mail Pouch process brings out the true tobacco flavor. A little chew of Mail Pouch goes a long way. The flavor lasts because it's put in the leaf by nature. And because it is not all padded with sweetening and artificial flavoring you can chew it without fear of indigestion or heartburn. ail Pouch "Not over'Sweetened — it tvon't cause heartburn or indigestion"
