The clcn-up by tha Chicago maple

t t-r- ialnt tha admittance of Chicago
in :li tourney. Chlcasro had al teams
1 1 Im the tournament this year and those

- Moiit of tha Midwest pin tumhiors foo
! Hive Chicago should have entered flf-
; trcn or twenty teams In the tournament
; o lai-Re is the city and so many are the
tuwlers there. Hut Chicago never aends
out over four, five or U teams and
thoHe trams ere always a bunch of
- sharks, real money bowlers and not so
' ir.uih men who roll for tne sport- And
a tournument la a sporting proposition,
not a money-making one.
Of tho Chti'atroans who wera tn the

r wera alley men. men who make bowling
: a bualnens, Jimmy and Kd Blouln. Hank
Marino. Matley fasts, Glenn Fisher,
. .Nick Hruik ana Dave Luby are all alley
, men and it is only natural they should
surpass the amateurs, from tha other
'J omo agitation has been on foot for
several years to have Chicago excluded
i from tha tournament, or at least de
mand that the entry Hat be Urge enough
' to make up for tha money carried away
by the cracks, and It ta almost a aura
' thing that some suggestion will ba mads
to this effect at the executive' committee
Personally the Chicago crew are a fine
; ouncn or leuows and no objection is
made to having them tn the tournament
, if only some other teams which do not
boast a bum h of money sharks are also

Omaha fared fairly well in the tour

f'JtJ'ctob of Del Monte Cal.. and the Mid-
applied for the 1916 westrn amateur ffolf
'championship, tournament. These ' bids
5 y0 'also Included the Olympic cup competl
5 .0 j Of the three clubs Omaha haa the edge.
.The Del Monte club probably will not be
given overly serious consideration, as
voo California la too far west for the great
5 00 ,floclt ' rnlddle western golfers who
y.A make up the Western Oolf association.
5.00 If the tourney is held on the coast It will
6 J' I pretty nearly be exclusively a coast
J i tournament ;
j Thus the fight narrows to the Omaha
5.',0 ,Country club and the Midlothian club.
! j Omaha Is thought to have the advantage,
,as last year Omaha was a big bidder for
5 0) the event and tha award waa made to
JJ ; Cleveland. Most of the clubs In voting; for
j'io Cleveland at the time recommended that
5. 0 Omaha be glvon the 1916 event. So, unless
0'the Midlothian people slip one over or
j 0i 'something unexpected should arise the
6, (i 1 1016 western golf championship will be
5.00 decided on the local, links.
5 00 1 Tn ournament will be awarded at tha
