Golf Tax (or Red Cross. x
Omaha women golfers are going
to make even their play productive of
hinds tor the Ked Cross. Airs. Walter
U. Silver, president of the association,
proposed a scheie to the members
of the association at their first meet'
ing, held Monday at the Country club,
wh- ebv anv number of dollars will
pour into the Ked Cross coffers i
they desire it. Each golfers mistake,
fault or failure will bring its little
bit of m ney i :tu the Ked Cross fund.
The plan is that for every three putts
the golfer shall pay 5 cents, for every
excessive number of strokes he shall
pav a fine and so on.
The little plan has not jet been ac
cepted by the golfers, but whep sug
gested by Mrs. Silver was approved by
all who heard it.
"Splendid," said Mrs. 'E. H. Sprague,
"let's tax the caddus for 'heir failures,
toothen we'll not only have better
caddv service, but more money for
the Red Cross."
Even if the golf association does not
take up the scheme some of the clubs
may work it out separately, so that
some patriotic golfers will be support
ing the Ked CJujs while at play. It
ought to be a good scheme to make
people really work on trie golf course.
At the opening meeting of the
Women's Golf .association Monday
about twenty-five or thirty women
were present. All the clubs were rep
resents by a few members and rretti
est Mue cltb had a large quota of
players. Mrs. E. H. Sprague, Mrs. F.
