ROURKES IN THE
FIN AL INNINGS
Fine Game for Seven Frames,
' But Ascension Made in
Eighth, With Locals on
the Short End. .
I Base Ball Standings
The Miners slipped it to the
Rourkes in the eighth inning of a
game that was one of the best ever
seen effi the local lot for seven and
one-third innings, slamming out four
hits, counting for five runs, breaking
the two-to-two tie and making the
. visitors winners easily. The local
. club failed to do anything in the
ninth, having one on the bases, Ed
die Hasten getting a free pass, but
Ihe died on first.
The Rourkes made a game effort
in the final session, Barbeau leading
!off with a single. Mason popped to
.second and Townsend went out, sec-
ond to first, Barbeau going to sec
ond on the play. "Whitey" Gisla
son pegged out a three-bagger jind
'Barbeau scored, but the game was
'over and the locals were on the
'short end when Jackson skied to
; The big blow-off in the eighth
IhaoDened thiisly; Tap Barbeau
oooted Crutrher's little infield poke,
ut nailed him at second on Burk's
: grounder. Boehler singled, putting
Burk on second. Nutt doubled and
Burk scored, Boehler going to third.
Pat Collins, the Joplin catcher, had
previously made two doubles and
Townsend passed him purposely to
get Smith. The latter rapped out a
screaming single, scoring Boehler
and Nut,t, while Smith went to sec
ond on the throw in. Hall followed
with another single and Collins and
' Second Baseman Hulswitt
slammed a hard one to Townsend,
,whi whirled and threw Hall out at
second. Thompson grounded to
Cislason at second and was an easy
out. Omaha came to bat with great
determination but the Miners in the
field were as much determined as
the locals and though they squeezed
jone across that was the limit.
1 For'six innings, the game looked
;like a no-hit no-run game for
Pitcher Crutcher and one-hit, one
run game for Townsend. In the
seventh though, each team clubbed
two bingles, the Omaha batters get
ting two runs, tteing the count,
while the Miners made one score.
In the eighth, Joplin made four hits,
giving them seven and that ended
it for them, The Rourkes made two
in the ' ninth, bringing their total
hits to four.

STATE GOLF TO
BE PLAYED TODAY
Blaine Young Plays Shepard
and Peters Is Matched
By KARL LEE.
In by far the closest match of the
state golf tournament to date and
one in which major interest was
taken, Blaine , Young, Field club
medalist, won a 36-hole fight for a
berth in th$ semi-finals,coming in
at 5 o'clock yestertay victor over
J. W. Hughes, also a Field veteran,
A large gallery followed the pair
over the entire course. Hughes led
1 up over the morning round. Both
handled their clubs faultlessly.
Hughes barely leading his ambitious
opponent in a see-saw game up to
the 14th -'hole. Here he blew a put
and the- match Ifitted.
Young played a perfect game.
Every drive, every putt counted. On
the approaches the playing was so
excellent that the pair drew almost
constant applause. At the 17th
green Hughes bungled a putt and
Young, taking advantage of the
opening scored on three strokes.
He held steady to the finish being
tied for the eighteenth.
Shepard Beats Beckett.
"Wally" Shepard sprung a sur
prise by beating Guy Beckett, Sey
mour Lake's former state champion,
2 up on the 36 hole course. The
Beckett defeat was a distinct disap
pointment. His victor's playing was
so unusually steady that it is said
that he is a real honest to good
ness "dark horse." Sam Reynolds
had little trouble defeating M. H.
LaDouceur, 9 to 8. H. Peters won
over Dr. Sumner by default. The
semi-final line-up: Young against
Shepard: Peters against Reynolds.
Magee and Koch Win.
For a time storm threatened to
undue the program in the last
rounds of the championship melee.
But the clouds cleared and the
games were finshed. In the pres
dent's round, Magee and Koch came
away toppers, having in turn de
feated O'Niell and Higgins. The
latter was rated as considerable golf
player, so Koch's chance with Magee
is good. Koch defeated Higgins, S
to 4. J. a. Kedheld, the Field club's
daring chance artist, was the whole
show in the secretary's flight. Early
Thursday morning Redfield a re
nounced to his comrades he was
going to "clean the greens" and he
did. He defeated T. F. Murphy and
he, in turn, took Will Chambers, the
Country club former star, into tow.
Redfield plays Brownell in the finals.

"Bunny" Guinand, who lost his
chance to win the championship
though he is considered by some as
the best golfer in the Missouri val
ley, easily defeated Paul Downs in
the second round and later took M.
T. Swartz to a trimming, 2 to 1.
Guinand says he don't know what
he will do with a consolation cup.

YANKEE LOSE TO
Jimmy Wilde, English Fly
weight Champion, Defeats
Pal Moore of Memphis in
Londarn, July 17. Jimmy Wilde,
the British flyweight champion, de
feated Pal Moore of Memphis,
Tenn., in a 20-round bout at the
The referee gave the decision to
Wiltje on points.
Twenty thousand oersons wit
nessed the fight. Moore ad
ministered much punishment on his
antagonist in the early stages of the
bout, but at the end of the twelfth
round Wilde led slightly on points.
In the fourteenth round Moore
sent a jab to Wilde s mouth, which
made the blood spurt. It was evi
dent in the last rounds that Moore
was trying for a knockout, but
Wilde's ring craft and cleverness
prevented the American from carry
ing out his plan.
On the invitation of the prince of
Wales, Gen. John J. Pershing oc
cupied the royal box with the prince
and pis brother, Prince Albert. The
party was given an ovation. Gen.
Pershing frequently waved his
hands or bowed his acknowledge
ment to the plaudits of the crowd.
Moore and ilde were matched
for last night's bout as a result of a
four-round contest in London last
December during the inter-allied
army boxing bouts. Moore was then
given the judge's decision and there
immediately was a demand for a
second meeting between rh boys
in a 20-round bout.
A purse of $25,000 was offered for
the second bout and Mxore sailed
from this country for England June
14. The weight was fixed at 116
pounds, but Wilde was not expected
to tip the scales within. 10 pounds
ot this limit, owing to his slight
build. No championship or title was
at stake, owing to the inability of
the two boxers to meet at equal
