Remain in Race
Iowa State Champ Eliminate
Jimmy Ward in Spectacular
Match After Playing
By GEORGE WHEELER.
Only citfht prayers remained in the
competition for the Transmississippi
golf championship after a day of
sensational playing yesterday, the
outstanding feature of which were
the spectacular thooting of (ieorge
Von Elm and "Rudy" Knepper and
the playing cf V. J. Foye, veteran
The eight players who survived the
second round are Von Klin, Knepper,
Foye. Rohert McKee of Des Moines,
Jes Stuttle of Kansas City, Alex
Graham of Wellintrton. Kan., and
VVally Shcpad and Jack Hughes of
The best match of the day was the
first round match between Knepper
and Jimmy Ward of Kansas City,
which was decided at the 19th hole
when the Iowa champion made one
of the prettiest shots ever executed
on the Country club course.
At the outset, Knepper appeared
an easy winner. After getting away
to a bad start by dubbing his first two
shots, the sioux City player steadied
himself and succeeded in having the
hole. He won the second and third
and halved the fourth and fifth. On
the sixth both were about four feet
from the" cup. Ward rimmed the
cup and laid Knepper in partial
stymie. Knepped then rimmed the
cup 'and (he ball dropped in, making
the Sioux City star 2 up.
Knepper increased his lead on the
eighth hole by sinking a beautiful 10
foot putt for a birdie 4. On the
ninth, Ward's drive landed in the
sand trap. He got out .well and
when "Rudy's" putt fell short Ward
won the hole and was only 2 down
on the homeward turn. Ward won
the 10th when Knepper' misrd a
short putt and squared the match
at the 11th. The remaining seven
holes were halved, Ward saving him
self by sinking a 15-foot putt on the
On the 19th hole, both reached the
green , in three. Ward then laid
Knepper a dead .stymie. The Iowa
' title holder was about four feet from
the cup, while Ward's ball was within
a foot of the tin. It was then- that
Knepper furnished the large gallery
with his spectacular shot. After tak
ing careful aim, he pitched his ball
short of Ward's. The ball boupced
over that of his opponent's and then
into the cup: giving him a birdie 4
and the match. Their cards:

The only real upset of the day
came in the first round when Sam
Reynolds, former holder of the
Transmississippi title and who was
figured to reach the semi-finals with
out really extending himself, was
eliminated by the veteran W. J. Foye,
who was considered a rank outsider.
Foye won the" match by outplaying
his younger opponent.
Foye played the outside course in
36 against 38 for his opponent. He
won four out of the first six holes,
and in so doing. established a lead
which Reynolds was unable to over
Vome. Reynolds was 3 down at the
turn. Thev. halved the 10th, 11th,
12th and 13th holes, but Foye in
creased his lead to 4 up on the 14th,
and maintained thiit advantage until
the end of the match.

OY ALLKN stood the
Omaha Buffaloes on
their collective heads
and tied knots in their
tails in the econd
game of the scries
here this afternoon,
winning by the score
of 7 to 2.
The Oklahoma City
Indian hurler tamed the Buffaloes in
the first inning with his curves and
had 'em eating out of his mitt for the
remainder of the game. In the ninth
the Buffaloes attempted to bite of! a
chunk of scores when the registered
their lone pair of tallies.
Barney Burch didn't have such
good luck with his hurtcrs. Joe Dailey
was Barney's first mound selection.
Joe started his ascension in the first
inning and didn't come down until
Kcdenbaugh was sent out to the hill
in the third. During the two and
one-third innings Dailey pitched the
Indians scored four runs on six hits
of which three was doubles. Reden

yielded a run and three hits, one of
which was a double.
Alien Gets Good Support. v
The Indians gave Allen dandy sup
port throughout the game, besides
connecting with the deliveries of
three Omaha hurlers for hits when
hits resulted in runs. The fielding
of Felber, Windle and Ginglardi of
Oklahoma City was nothing short of
spectacular. This trio of Indians
robbed Omaha of several hits by their
circus catches and stops.
Allen held the Buffaloes to five
scattered hits until the ninth when
the herd bunched a single and two
doubles for two runs.' The visiting
hurler had good control all afternoon.
Jack Holland's Indians went on the
warpath as-soon as the "ump" yelled:
"play tall." A single and Felber's
double resulted in the first Oklahoma
City run, while Pitt and Ginglardi's
doubles coupled with Tate's walk,
Wilcox's error and Felber's single
yielded three more runs in the third,
Pitt s base on balls in the fourth fol

Jack Dempsey and Harry Wills,
through their nianagers,.y,esterday
signed a contract to box for the

The contract, which it is expected
will evenually bring the champion

quired the heavyweights to box 60

Sone one niilled a boner. Whether
it was Charlie Thorn, the sturdy
"pro" from Shinnecock Hills. N. Y.,
or the scorer who went arbond with
him matters not. Thorn turned in a
card of 152 tmd qualified, (hutting
out all those who had scored 153.
This morning it was discovered that
orf the short 13th hole Thorn had
driven his ball into the bunker guard
ing the green. In that bunker was
a shallow pool of casual water. Thonv f
could have played the ball 'out of
the water without much trouble? but
the scorer after an argument, told
him to lift the ball and. drop it out of
the water. Thorn knew the rule
which inflicts a stroke penalty for
lifting the ball out of casual water
in a bunker, but accepted the word of
the scorer on the point and dropped
the ball back, playing it from be
hind the pit.
The drop-back evidently did not
help him much, as he took a four on
the hole, but when the report was
made to the committee an investiga
tion was ordered. The committe im
mediately ordered that the players
who had registered a 153 yester
day be -notified that they are in the
finals and telegrams were sent to
them to return to Skokie by Friday
morning to be" ready to play.'
Gives Thorn a Stroke.
The executive committee, after
hearing the evidence, decided merely
to add one stroke to Thorn's score,
which made him 153 as a total and
permitted all the 153s to come in for
the final rounds. No blame was at
tached to any one and the committee
regarded it merely as a scoring n
take or a blunder in interpreting
The postponement today was the
second in the history of open cham
pionships. In 1910 the British open
at St. Andre was postponed on ac
count of the flooded condition Of the
grounds. The United States open
never before was compelled to post
