By EDDIE MURPHY. Ralph "Sailor" Stroud, old-time Salt Lake pitcher, made a comeback yesterday afternoon with his old team mates when he took the mound against the Oakg, who dropped the fifth straight game' of the series. Stroud found the going easy because his team mates made a merry-go-round at the expense of Earl Kunz, who worked on the mound for the Oaks. The final checking showed -the Bees with, fifteen runs against four for the Oaks. ' It was' Kunz' first start for, the Oaks in more than a week and Manager Ivan Howard- became, so disgusted with Kunz' pitching that ha made the former Pirate hurl the full nine Innings while his team mates became leg weary - chasing the ball to the far corners of the diamond. Kunz allowed 18 hits and Issued eight passes -to first base .while Btroud allowed but nine hits -and two passes. Joe Connolly, who . took ' Fred erick's place in center field for the Bees when Umpire Teck chased Frederick to the clubhouse for crabbing, did everything necessary to entitle him to a regular place in the line-up. In four trips. to the plate, Con nolly . drew a walk, hit a single, double and triple ana scored two runs. Frank O'Doul, Bee right fielder, hit two doubles and as many singles to drive In 'four runs and he crossed the plate twice himself. In the eighth Inning, when the Bees were leading 6 to 2, five hits off Earl Kunz gave the visitors four more runs. In the Oaks' half Arlett got to third.-. base on Btroud. wild throw and Miller hit a ball over the left field fence for his first home run since joining the club. In the ninth inning Oakland fans had a merry time. laughing at 'the Oaks' outfielders chasing the ball to all corners of the diamond. Three doubles, a triple and two - singles with a couple of free passes thrown in gave the Bees six more runs. Harry O'Neill, Salt Lake pitcher, was sent to bat for Sheehan in this inning and he connected for a trple. Frank O'Doul laced out two dou bles in this inning. ab a bh r-o Frederic!, cf. m I JUndemore, 2b... , t WHEN GODFREY DEFEATED RENAULT Vltt, 3b. .....,.....,...'.. 4 O'Donl, tf , j Blieeban, If. ....... .......

Willie MacFarlane, 1925 na- tional open champion, has been a long time coming into his own. The reason he has ,not been prominent in competition previously is that he has kept off, preferring to attend to his duties in his own quiet way as a golf professional. . As a matter of fact, MacfaYWlre's greatest usefulness In" this game has been his ability to Instruct The tall, angular Scot, who looks like a school master, takes delight in Imparting his knowledge of the game to others. He has made no attempt to advance 'his fortune In tournament play, although whenever he has seen fit to enter competitive lists he has kept pace with the leaders. What kind of a golfer is this Macfarlane, conqueror, of the great Bobby Jones, the golf world is asking today. The answer is that this easy-going Scot with large blue eves and smile as wide as the brim of his panama,' is one of the most brilliant shot-makers m tne game. WONDERFUL 6HOTS. What the gallery saw in the final struggle between Jones and Macfarlane was a great contest of wonderful shots.' In this respect and particular match was one of the moet soectacular ever played. Macfarlane is not a great hitter, which explains why Jones outdrove hint repeatedly. Likewise he is not the best putter In the game, al though he is good in both aepart ments. But he is a wonderful play er of the irons and a shot-maker de luxe and because of his ability in this respect he can always be counted on to hold his own In any field. Macfarlane came to thl country IB years ago. ' Formerly he was privat Instructor to Murray Gug Kenhelm. the copper king. About five years ago Macfarlane took tha position of golf professional at Oakrldge, neighboring club, of Quakerrldge, wher Johnny Farrell is located. Th pair have engaged in frequent golf combats and it Is still a question of great debate at thes two clubs as to which is the better Kolfer. Though defeated in th final struggle Friday. Bobby Jones re mains one of th greatest golf play ers of all time. To say that h is the greatest W(uld Invite debate, i particularly from admirers or waiter Hagen, but it can not be denied that, at the rate he is going, the Atlanta boy will set up a record of competitive play that will never be equalled in quality. CALLED THE TURN. .When the writer stated In last week's dispatch that everything pointed to a very open tournament, little did he think the competition would be so extremely keen r the calibre of golf so brilliant. The faot that at least six player had th chance of winning right up to th last hoi. indicates sow last th going was. Th writer ilsllk to tak rank among th "I told rot so" alas, hut inasmuch a all prophet ar subject s th w.ll-koowa raspberry when their prediction g astray, h ' li taking thl tpport unity to point ut tnat inm tournament developed alongr tha Hna suggested last wek. 1 la that dispatch ta golfers wer named a likely to set th pace-Bobby Jonas, Johnny rarrell. Mao-donald Smith, Waiter Hagen, Gene Barazen, Willi Macfarlane. Francl Oulmet, William Mehlhorn, Leo Dlegel and Jock Hutchinson. Of these, seven finished In th. money. Of thl. ten, th chances of three Jones, Farrell and .Smith were favor-ed above the rest of th field. Jonea tied for th championship; Farrell finished a stroke behind. Smith dd "not show, but In view of his great golf thl .prtng It would have been Impossible to have left bn out of any rating. Farrell. with any kind of luck: ought to win th open championship within th next th res year. H i. too good a golfer to ht held off much longer. Another feature of thl tournament wa th comeback of Gen Sarazen. th . llon-beartsd littl. Umpire Eddie Jeck Gets Into Another Mixup TTMPIRE EDDIE TECK, who is officiating here this week, is having a rough time. Thursday he had to ask the gentlemen of th pre ibout balls and strikes, and Friday he made a pool decision it first base. Yesterday he chased Johnny Frederick, Salt Lake outfielder, to the clubhouse when the. Bee had a legitimate kick coming. In the second inning with Makin on first for the Oak snd JFlow-ers at' bat with none out Stroud pitched ball that hit Flowers' bat. ' The crack of lb boll against th bal. could be beard -in the press box aboye thl grand stand, but Teck ruled that il was ball. Bee swarmed sronnd Teck and bossed plenty. Flowers . then drew a wslk and ; Bylet followed with single to score a run. Frederick kept crabbing t Teck snd wss chasetl. " - Michie an Wins ig Ten Meet; Records Set I! J. E. Russell Makes New High Jump Mark; Schwarze Breaks Shot Mark. (Continued on Paga 4-D.), By EARL J. JOHNSON, United Pnii Staff Correspondent. COLUMBUS, O.. June 6. Michi gan tracksters showed their heels to the Big Ten conference - and eight other midwestern schools here this afternoon, winning the midwest outdoor classic of the season with 46 points. Wisconsin was second with 81 and Ohio State third with 80. The first of the final events In the big stadium was run off under a broiling sun that sapped the vitality of the athletes perceptibly. Towards the middle of the meet, the sun went under a cloud and a strong breeze sprang up from the south and the athletes pepped up. . Four western conference and intercollegiate records- were broken. Alderman of Michigan State ran under the record In the 200-yard' dash but his record was not allowed because the wind was at his back. Northrup, Michigan, hurled the Javelin to a new record of 201 feet 9 Inches. . 1 Jack Knight Leads Western Sluggers Jack Knight, former .Oakland In-fielder, Is leading th hitters in th Western League with an average, of .414 for 45 games. He'is second to Bliss, but Bliss has only participated in 23 contests. Knight is playing first bass for th Denver team and has been hitting especially well during the past few weeks. In a double-header on Memorial Day, Knight collected seven hits In twelve attempts. Two home runs and two doubles were among the blngles. He garnered six hits out of eight times at bat In another L. recent double-header, and filled "in at shortstop tor a couple of Innings In one gam. ' mm ' Heavyweights Give Painful Demonstration Howard Tells Why He Allowed Kunz to Finish While Oaklanld hall fans ; pleaded yesterday afternoon for Manager Ivan Howard of th Daks to take Pitcher Earl Kuna out of the box and put tn some-ne else. In hopes of making It a ball game. Instead of a track meet for the Salt Istke players, Oakland ' outfielders ran them-selves ' dlszy hounding the ball. Runs was allowed to go the full nine Innings. When asked last evening what the Idea was. Howard saldt "Runs haa not been able to get started and I felt that after the fifth Inning We did not have a chance to win, and let him stay in thre and get all the work he could, tots of work may bring him around, and 1 know that he can pitch better ball., It was not fair to make the few thousand fans pay their money to watch a plwhet trying to get into shape. Kuna was a couple of week late In reporting at training camp and there la no reaaon why the fans should be made to suffer for his mis-; takes. Kuna looked worse on the hill . yesterday than ever. Howard salcl that lie did not rare to make any farther statement nntll after tha ball games today. Longshoremen Could ' Have. Done Much Better for a ' ; Lot Less Money. , 4 By BOB SI1AND. r Just why boxing , promoters will import two huskies front the east and pay them ten thou-sand dollars apiece foi giving a wrestling display when two lo-' cal longshoremen would be glad to do as good a. job 'for 'two and a half, is one of the mysteries of the boxing racket. 'At Recreation Park, San Francisco, yesterday afternoon, George God frey, nuge colored person from the outskirts of Philadelphia,, y was" given a. ten-round decision over Jack Renault of Canada, when as, a matter of justice to " a long-suffering fandom they should both have been given the air. It war something a terrlbje - to behold, Perhapsrthe act had not been rehearsed, but. had it been, the execution could not have been mure perfect. It was a classic in tne way of extracting five-fifty, from the ringside customers and' making them like il;. ' . v : Nothing. quite so crude has been inflicted on a Western audience since the days of Jim Figg. If the men did their best yesterday they should be forever-barred on the grounds of incompetency. If they did not do their best1 they should be barred on general : principles. 1 They haven't got an "out". In the world. - , i BETTIXG WA PECUMAR. An enlightening angle may be found in the betting odds.. For several days before the contest Renault was a tenrto seven and ten to eight favorite; Two hours before th fight the odd dropped to ten to nine ATD VT THH RINGSIDE BETS WERB MADE WITH GODFREY FA VO KITE AT ODDS OF TEN TO EIGHT. During the. contest Renault '.twice claimed to have been fouled, once when he was hiton the ear tuid the second time when .' he was tapped on the' chest. . - In the ten rounds 'of 'mauling not. one damaglig - punch was landed. In the fourth 'round' Renault went to the floor and took a. count " of four from a light blow.; Five seconds from the end of the round he went down again from a punch that would, not have wor- ried a lightweight and he might hav remained down had not the gong sounded.. ' , j ' The further It went th worse it got. From the second round until -the ' finish there were demand from the spectators that both men : be tossed from the ring and the purse given to charity. Referee , Laird would have been complied with a popular demand had he ejected th principals, but it was . ' Tom's first appearance In- big time and he was a bit nervous, AN AMUSING tfEATCKE. An amusing feature of the affair was Godfrey's wild swinging. Ia the fifth and sixth round, for no reason at all, he swung clear across th ring and tried to land with an open glove. -With. every swing he threw himself off balanc and wa a mark for any . kind of a counter. But did Renault accept the opportunities? - H did not. In-stead he covered up or got on his bicycle. Any other boxer with : . more than three weeks' experience would have knocked Godfrey' head off when he left himself wid open after swinging, v . v There were other peculiar IncU dents in th ten rounds of clinch-, ing.
