The° moot question\ of supremacy
in the field of. woman's golf in Great
Britian has been definitely settled in
the opinion of the experts, by Miss
Joyce Wethered's victory over Miss
Cecil Leitch at Northwood, Eng., Wed-
nesday. Miss Wethered won by 5 anl
1 3, scoring her fourth victory in seven
meetings wih the former champion,
who is just returning to competitive
play after an absence of two years due
to an injured arm. Miss Wethered is
23 years old and Miss Leitch 33.
The younger woman was superbly
confident and never in trouble. At
driving the two players were about on
even terms, but Miss Wethered was
deadly with the irons, planting her
approaches well up to the pin and
once, on the short third, sinking her

Coach of Michigan Squad Diseusses
P.rsects For Coming
More than thirty candidates for the
golf team met yesterday afternoon in
the Union to discuss prospects for the
coming golf season which will open
May 6 at Columbus.
Carlton Wells, of the rhetoric de-
partment, coach of the team and Mich-
igan amateur champion for the past
two seasons, spoke to the candidates.
He urged that those who intended to
tryout for the team should get in
considerable practice on their home
courses during the Spring vacation in
order to be ready for the try outs dir-
ectly after the resumption of classes.
He also announced that fifteen men
would be selected from all-of the can-
didates for the team and that those

Just what five pitchers will'-be taken
on the trip will not be known until the
last day before the squad leaves.
Lew Wilson, the home run king of
the Virginia league last season, prob-
ably will be carried by the New YorkI
Giants this season as pinch hitter.
Young Lew has impressed Owner Mc-
Graw and his aides with the healthy,
carefree swing he takes at the ball.
Wilson made the Portsmouth club
of the Virginia circuit an interesting
outfit last season despite the fact that
it was a tail-end outfit. Folks just
naturally journeyed out to see Lew
put $2.50 worth of horsehide out ofE
commission and the ball park.
