Only Four Teams in League Are
Undefeated in Detroit
District Group.
DETROIT, May 18. - () - Only
fouir teams out of .18 that started
play in the Detroit District Golf
League two weeks ago are unde-
feated. They are Oakland Hills and
Western in Group A, Bloomfield
Hills in B and Red Run An C. With
talentthus comparatively well bal-
Oakland Hills gained a .place -with
Western at the top of the standings
by a double coup yesterday, down-
ing Lochmoor, 101/2 to 71/2 in the.
morning and in the afternoon giv-
ing Country Club its second succes-
sive defeat, this time by the score
of 10 to 8. In each case a member
of the losing side had low score. H.
R. Olscn, Lochmoor, shooting a 75
in the morning and Benjamin H.
Paddock's 74 in the afternoon being
low for both Country Club and
Oakland Hills.
Western maintained its unde-
feated position by nosing out the
Detroit Golf Club by a single point
in the morning, 91/2 to 81/2, Brook-
lands tying Detroit in the after-
noon, 9, to 9.
Bloomfield Hills, only undefeated
aggregation in Class B, was trailing
when the first Meadowbookfour-
' n-e reportedabut the Bloomfield's
second pair came within, half ,a
point of scoring a sweep. The clos-
est matches of the day were at
Pine Lake, where the home team
nosed out Island Country Club in
the morning, 91/2 to 81/2 and held
Grosse Ile even in the afternoon,
tying 9 to 9.

a great team, Comiskey's White
Sox sagged and sagged into the
depths of the league. A year ago,
he hired Donie Bush, who had
given Pittsburgh a National league
title, to manage his club, and since
then, has bought and traded in an
l effort to fashion a club capable of
attracting enough customers to fill
the huge White Sox playing park.
His latest effort has been to trade
Willie Kamm, for whom he paid
11$100,000 in 1922, and who was one
of the league's leading third base-
men, for Lew Fonseca of the Cleve-.
land Indians. Fonseca, who led
the American league in batting in
1929, will be used either at second,
or third, and his hitting should
help the Sox to win games.
Early in the season Lu Blue was
obtained from t h e St. Louis
Browns to play firsts otherwise
Fonseca, who has been at first for
the Indians, might have been sta-
tioned there.
Manager Bush predicts that his
team will cause all kinds of trou-
ble when it gains its full power.
Ted Lyons, the ace of the pitching
staff, has been out with an injured
shoulder, and Smead Jolley, a bats-
man of .300-plus caliber has been
inactive since undergoing a minor
surgical operation.
Three hundred and twenty track
and field athletes of the Big Ten,
comprising one of the best fields
in the history of the conference,
will finish training this week in
preparation for the annual cham-
pionships at Dyche stadium in
Evanston Friday and Saturday.

Egleston Wins in Upset.
The win last Saturday against'a
team which is rated as one.of the
best in Big Ten track circles, was
accomplishe d-in.a brillant fashion,
as have previous tests, with the
Wolverine stars coming through
with the necessary points when the
occasion demands. Hawley Egles-

2:02 3-5, "Do you realize that Sweep
All also broke the Derby record of
Old Rosebud?" The Fisher colt's
time was four fifths of a second
faster than Old Rosebud's mark
made in 1914, and he was three
lengths behind Twenty Grand.
A former jockey said that the old
mark withstood thetonslaught for
17 years, but Twenty Grand gave
them one they'll be shooting at for
a number of years to come. Charlie
Kurtsinger, the winning jockey, said
that Twenty Grand was by far the
fastest horse he had ever ridden.
Twenty Grand is a horse of ex-
ceptional beauty. He has almost
perfectly shaped legs, with sinews
of iron, and powerful hindquarters
which give him that tremendous
driving power. His strides are long,
with an easy, graceful motion that
makes him seem to fly over the

across Navin Field yesterday after-
noon, his favorite club in his hand.
He stopped at the Yankee dugout
to greet the longest hitter in base
"Lemme see that," said Babe
Ruth getting up from his seat and
reaching for the driver.
He took the club in his massive
hands, tapped it lightly against the
rough boards of the dugout and
asked Clarence Gamber how much
it weighed.
"Fifteen ounces," replied the pro-
fessional of Forest Lake Country
Club. ..

Gamber sat down on the bench
and fondled one of the Babe's bats,
that weighs at least three times as
much. Ruth continued to wiggle the
driver, t
"I'lltrade yer," said the Babe.
Gamber grinned.
The Babe carried the golf club
to right field, taking practice swings
as he went, while Gamber carried
the bat.
