THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., SATURDAY, AUGUST 12, 1939, NINE Girl Golfers Change Their Styles And Scores . 1899: Ruth Underbill By DILLON GRAHAM AP Feature Service Sports Writer T HE girls who were pioneers in American golf away back in the 189O's perhaps would be shocked at the sports clothes Uncle Sam's golfing daughters will wear at the national championship August 21-26 at the Wee Burn club, N.oroton, Conn. And they would be astonished, too, at the unbelievably low scores. The ladies of the link? today wear fewer clothes and re- 1904: Georgianna Bishop quire fewer strokes than they did in 1899 when Ruth Underbill won the U. S. crown. The modern-day miss, in her loose-fitting, cool dress or comfortable slacks, giggles at pictures of the old-time champions and inquires: "How could they pivot or swing a club in those clothes?" The more suitable attire, with freedom of movement, is partially responsible for the better golf played now. 1906: Harriot S. Curtis Thirteen women competed for the first National championship in 1895; there will be around 150 at Wee Burn. Miss Beatrix Hoyt' was four times medalist in the gay nineties. Her best score was 92. Nowadays the girls often dip into the 70's. Miss Enid Wilson holds the record at 76. (Mrs. Julius Page, 1937 champion, tallied a 69 on a regulation-sized Pinehurst, N. C., course in competition.) 1913: Gladys Ravenscroft Girls don't hit the ball as far as boys. But, some experts say, -Patty Berg, 1938 queen, could play on equal terms with the males if she were conceded a man's distance off the tees. Any girl whose handicap does not exceed eight strokes is eligible for the national championship. Entrants will play an 18-hole medal play qualifying, round at Wee Burn. The low 64 scorers go into the match play, competition that leads 1916-19-20: Alexa Stirling to the title. The final round -is at 36 holes, the others at IS. Women's par is slightly higher—six to eight strokes—than men's figures, depending on the course's length. Two proud names in American golf are Alexa Stirling and Glenna Collett (Mrs. Edwin H. Vare). Alexa, from Atlanta's East Lake where Bobby Jones learned the game, was queen in 1916-19-20. Glenna won in 1922-25-28-29-30-35. 6-times: Glenna Collett Patty Berg is' the nation's No. 1 girl golfer. Still a college undergraduate, she was runner-up in 1935 and 1937 and champion in 1938. An appendectomy may keep her from defending her laurels. With Patty out there'll be a scramble. Dorothy Kirby, Mrs. Page, Marion Miley, Katherine Hemphill, Charlotte Glutting and Pamela Barton, the British girl who won in 1936, will be among the favorites. OLD RIVALS WILLCLASH Independent Loop Leaders To Battle Yarrowsburg Tomorrow. A pair of old rivals are scheduled to clash this Sunday in what^appears to be the feature game in the Independent League, they being the Maugansville Colts, now topping the circuit, and the Yarrowsburg club, the game being slated for the latter's diamond. Maugansvillo has a three game advantage over Harrystown and Security, with the Yarrowsburs club tied for fourth place with Wevcrton. A victory is needed by Yarrowsburg to remain in the playoff division while Maugansville hopes to increase their loop aclvan- inge. The game will start at 2:30 o'clock. At City Park the Tate Cubs will entertain the up and coming Security aggregation and this game promises to be well worth while. The proceeds of this contest will be turned over to Russ Bowers, injured last Sunday in action. Quite a crowd is expected out and Security will be in there fighting to overhaul the Colts. Harrystown Old Germans, tied for second place in the standing, travels to the Victor diamond to lake on the Funkstown aggregation and while the Old Germans have displayed plenty of power the Funkstown team showed last Sunday they are not to be overlooked. The Victor Eagles go to Wever- ton for a contest that has the earmarks of a natural and the Antle- tarn Redbircls will be entertained on the Middleburg diamond by the Fliers. There will be a doubleheader, the first game starting at 1:15 o'clock. Plenty of interest is being manifested in these games and" with the race as close as it Is all contests should draw large crowds. Leaders Playing Try-Me Sunday The league leading Victor Blue Sox travel to Mt. Briar on Sunday to do battle with Manager Bert McKee's Try-Me club in Washington County League play. The game is scheduled to start at 2:30 o'clock. At present the Blue Sox are leading the pack with a game margin and will need a victory this Sunday to retain that advantage. Manager Brooks has had his boys working hard and will have his full corps of hurlers to call on for duty this Sunday. Down county fans are pulling hard for the Try-Me team to take the measure of the league leaders and one of the largest crowds of the season is expected out for this game.

Kepler was on the mound for the Goons with Huffer hurling for the Wimpies. Poor support on the part of his teammates kept Huffer in hot water during the evening. The Goons took an early lead when they put across three runs in the first inning on four hits and two errors, with the Wimpies getting one in their half. The Goons tallied again in the third and put across four in the fourth to go ahead 8-1. The Wimpies scored one in the fifth and the Goons got this back in the sixth, only to have the Wimpies put across three in the sixth to make the score 9-5. In the last inning the Goons tallied throe times and apparently had the game sewed up. However, in the Wim- pies half they put on a rally which netted them six runs, leaving two men on with only one out. However, Troxell hit a hard drive at Lehman who made the catch and Schmuck struck out to end the rally . The Goons won 12-11. Warlow, Gower and Wright hit for the circuit during the same, with Strasser playing .sensational bill at second base fur the Goons.
