The Play of Men Against Women.
I have been repeatedly asked what
I consider the number of strokes
that a first-class man golfer can
fairly give to a lady of like class
among her own sex. It is an inter
esting question and while I have
no exhaustive data on the subject,
I think I have enough to at least es
tablish a general line. .
I have not had a special oppor
tunity, to see women play, but last
summer Robert Gardner and I
played in a very interesting mixed
four-ball match with Miss Alcxa
Stirling and Miss Elaine Rosenthal,
both noted players. I think that it
was demonstrated in that match thnt
the men led the women some 15
or 16 strokes. I was curious to sec

Return of Denver to tlje Western
league this season brings back one
of the charter members of the cir
cuit, an organization that dates back
to what is termed the beginning of
modern baseball 1900. It was in
this year the American league blos
somed out as the second major.
During the 22 seasons since then,
only two have continued the strug
gle, 'year in and year outj without
a single break. These are Omaha
and Des Moines.
Sioux City and St. Joseph of the
present personnel, also were charter
members, but Sioux City dropped
out in 1901, 1902. 1903 and for the
second half of 1917 and St. Joseph
quit from 1906 to 1909.
After starting with the Jeague,
winning the first pennant and then
three others in 1911, 1912 and 1913,
Denver w as ditched before the open
ing of the season of 1918 because of
the war. This season will be the
first for the mile-high city since
Many of the present generation

is true their average drive was
shorter, but many a man with no
longer drive gets home without
many extra strokes.
On the ninth hole, I missed my
drive somewhat, and then saw the
difference. I used a mashie, and
they used a brassie, and every one
knows that an iron shot to the green
is easier and surer than a wooden
one. I think I discovered the secret
the shots are chiefly made up on
the second shot to the green.
As a rule, women do not recover as
well as men, neither do they play cut
shorn with ths same ability. If a woman
Is playing her brassie well, snd her run
up shots and "cuts' are good, the man
who gave her a half stroke a hols would
he hard put.
It Is easier to give nine strokes In H
holes, than a half on every hole, but my
rather limited experience lends me to be
lieve that a first-class man can give a first
class American woman player the half
stroke, providing always that the course
la a really tesilmt one. There are In this
country plenty of "leveling courses" where
no odds would be fair, but 1 feol that on
a stiff course like Pine Valley, one could
give ono stroke on 13 holes and win. a I
say American players, because I .do not
believe that a leading American or Ca
nadian man golfer can give a leading
British "Indy golfer" any very great odds.
The British Ipdy golfer Is a great In
stitution; .her strength, skill and industry
almost beyond belief. 1 beliove this not
withstanding the grand showing of the
American women golfers on the occasion
of Miss Cecil I.eitch's visit last-season.
The superb playing of Mrs. "Fred Letts and
Miss Marion Hollins can never be forgot
ten. In 1911 a team of American ' women
played In the British championship, at
Newcaatle, County Down, and they did
not have a chance. That same year I was
at Stoke Peges, England, where a match
was held between men and women, and
the women won. There was the custom
ary half a stroke a hole. A few years
Ister Harold Hilton played In a very fa
mous match with Miss Cecil Leitch. He
gave her half a stroke a hole and was
beaten 2 and 1. The courses played over
were Walton Heath and Sunnlngdale.
The quality of play of women on this
side of the Atlantic Is approaching the
standard of their British sisters, however.
As the game growa In popularity with
our women their standard of play Is
higher. .

I'arun, that astute western hrse
nun, and thoroughbred follow rrs who
attend the summer mertliiii at
Omaha w ill see a tine lot of .printer
carrying the pink and blue colors v(
this Montana horseman. Parson
announced today that at the conclu
sion 01 the Tijuana Hireling April J.I
he will ship Ins (Mrnivc siring to
No sialilo at the track boasts of
such combined speed as docs the
house of l'aroiiN. He has some
horse for a distance of ground, hut
most of hi raring tools are live and
si;; furlong home and the way they
ran turn on is a caution. No horse
man on the Tijuana track has had 1
more meteoric career than Parwus,
It was not long ago that 1'arsons'
colors were carried hy a singh
standard-bearer and this was a iud
named Montana flclle. She was a
very ordinary sort, but proved the
foundation of the now extensive
string w hich this owner has acquired
and which contains enough speed to
win linn nurses on any man race
track. Parsons ranks among the w in
ning owners at this meeting.
Good Winners.
Included in his string are Huron
II, Shifty, Sister Susie. Carrie Moore,
C. A. Comiskey. Duly Fashion,
Booncville, N'eg. Don Dodge and
others. Hooncvillc and Don Dodge
are his distance performers, while all
the others like a sprint. Booncville
and Don Dodge are two of the most
consistent route runners here and
have won more than their share of
the races. Huron II has the honor
of taking Motor Cop into camp and
also that clever horse Mulciber, the
latter being the winner of the $20,000
Coffroth handicap. Shifty is an ex
tremely useful filly. She is by
Iloneywood and shows a high turn
of speed at five furlongs. C. A.
Comiskey is one of the most con
sistent horses ever racing in the west.
Before purchased by Parsons this
horse won a string of races for G.
A. Getchcll and was scarcely ever
out of the money. Duly Fashion is
a horse of some whims and seems
to do his best work on a sloppy
track. Give him this kind of a course
and he will take a lot of beating.
Sister Susie is a mighty sweet mare.
She is by Galveston and during the
early part of the meeting here she
won several purses for Parsons.
There is fnot a "dead" horse in the
t'arsons string and tliey should
prove a formidable lot at Omaha.
Owner Parsons will have the ser
vices of the aggressive jockey, G.
Williams. This elongated rider is a
hustling reinsman and has the knack
of getting his mounts away from the
post in a hurry and never allowing
them to loiter.
Prdduct of West.
Parsons has devoted most of his
life to horses. He is truly a product
of the west and the range. His
daughter, Nellie Parsons, is a cham
pion exhibition and trick rider and
won signal honors at the Cheyenne
(Wyo.) Frontier Days and the Pen
dleton (Ore.) Roundup. She has
been quite a figure here in galloping
horses during their morning exercise
and it's highly likely that Omaha
fans will see the novelty of a pretty
girl giving thoroughbreds their
Horsemen at Tijuana are taking a
keen interest in the Omaha meeting,
which will be inaugurated on Tune
3. and it is expected that when the
curtain falls at the border track on
ApriL23 many owners of the better
class horses will join the vanguard
that will make the corn center their
mecca for summer racing.

Hit Off I Misery of
Tcan Leapuc
Wichita Falls, Tex.. April 9.
(Special Telegram.) The Buffaloes
did everything in their power to
stave off the inevitable here Saturday
hut the fates were not with them and
the Wichita Falls Spudders nosed
them out in the 10th inning, 3 to 2.
That the Western leaguers wore
defeated was in no way due to Her
man, who parked one of Knadlcr's
slants in the second round with one
mau abroad and gave his mates a
one run lead until it was thrown
away bv CofTcndalftT in the eighth.
The hurling on both sides was of
the midseason variety, but Coffeu
dalTer presented the home club with
the tying run in the eighth and got
himself into a hole in the Mth that
he could not duck. He filled the
comers in this round ai(d then had
to face- a pinch l.iacr. who singled
and brought in the winning run.
The Buffaloes jumped into the
lead in the second round whrn Grif
fin singled down the third base line
with one away and touched all the
bags on Herman's drive over the
left field fence.
The Texas leaguers came back in
the same canto and counted once
after two men had been rcircd. The !
run was of the cheapest variety, but i
counted nevertheless. Miller drove
a single through tnc nox, wnicn
bounded away from Manush, and
when Griffin made a wild heave on
the return Miller romped home un
molested. The Spudders second run was a
gift. It occurred in the eighth and
two men had been retired once
again. Schmidt was hit by one of
Coffcndaffer's slants and he scored
when the same man threw wild to
first in an effort to catch him nap
ping. Coffcndaffer hit Besche in the, 10th
for a starter and the latter romped
to third when Miller singled to right.
Acting under orders, "Coffey" pass
ed Sorey, but Manager Salm sent
Frank Kitchens into hit for Schmidt
and he crashed a single inside third,
which sent Birch home with the
winning tally.
