The intense interest in the .public

from the fact that practically every
public courje in the United .fctatei
will be represented. The municipali
ties are lending the atari who have
learned the game on the public

the municipalities are paying the ex

The fact that a policeman, a letter

play shows the wide range of interest
in this event. .

trouble in getting money to defray

The British invaders are stronger
than they ever have been in any na

ably represents the best talent the
empire can present at this time.
Roger Wethered is declared bv many
of the British press and by some of
our American golfers to be the most
dangerous of all invaders, but among
the British experts Colin Aylmer,
who was shooting remarkable golf,
