.Na Hitch la Meeting. '
At a meeting of the outgoing and Incom
ing offlcera held earlier In tha day tha
line of action to be taken at tha meeting
waa decided upon and tha administration
policy went through without a hitch. In-tereat-
centered on tha expansion resolu
tions. When these cama up W, L. Yule of
the Kenoaha Country club, who had
fathered tha proposed amendments, moved
the adoption of article 111 aa It previously
stood with tha addition of tha worda "and
all properly organised cluba In tha Domin
ion of Canada."
Preaident John C. Tennell of tha Trana
Mississippi Oolf association announced that
the organization would hold its tournament
at Omaha. August 14 to It.'
Before thla waa put Wendell Jtertig of
Minneapolis moved that a vote be taken
on the proposition to change the name of
the Western tiolf association tq the Ameri

made In this waa the reduction of the age
limit from 24 to 21 years. 1
The other amendmenta relating1 to the
aalection and makeup of the nominating
committee and to the manner In which in
dependent nominations must be made wert
carried without any material alteration,
although in the latter It waa decided that

writing and signed by the five club mem
bers making them. The former proposition
was to have tha secretarlea of tha clubs
file a certificate atatlng that the members
making the nominations were members of
Personnel at Officials.

law. notice waa given of a resolution to
authoilze the president to piepare an
amendment to article vlll for submission

this resolution is to have a majority of the
board composed of representatives of other

Hmith explained that it was
the disposition of directors to be consei va
lue and while they believed there was
need for a better national organisation
they would respect the I'ntted States Golf

Tha visionary Fletcher, who would have
promoted a new base ball league at a
large profit to himself and thrown all the
risk of success upon the shoulders of
the players, says that he haa not finished
with hla Idea of making trouble for the
major leagues and will take their players
away from them at the end of the sea
son of 1911.
About that time there will be some who
can be spared.
Meanwhile major league club owr.ers may
as well keep an eye on this gentleman,
who Is likely to do his share toward up
setting discipline If he does nothing else.
If he continues to negotiate with ball
players, unless the latter turn a cold
shoulder and keep him away, some of the
more emotional are likely to forget all
about the obllgatlona which they owe to
their employers for the seasan of 1911.
That haa happened In the past.
