FEW APPLY FOR
1 AMATEUR GOLF
.Big Contest Will Probably
Go to Detroit Country
Club or Oakmont Club, of
. Pittsburgh, Says Report.
Ir direct contrast to othe;r years? the
United Stales Golf Association has re
ceived hut few applications for the next
amateur championship. As a rule bait
a doten or more chibs apply for the
traeetlnEy and the committee in charge of
diSUend of the business has little trouble
irVdeddinc between them. The champlon
ahip next year -will be held In the middle
(West, and the clubs meat favored are
tue Oakmont Country Club, Pittsburgh,
and the Detroit Country Club, It is hlghlr
probable that the next time the erent la
befd in the Bast. Philadelphia. Trill be the
.gcene, and as no have several courses of
championship class, there should be no
reason why the, application of one of
them should not bs accepted.
The open championship Is due to be held
tn the East next year, and in all likelihood
-irsiof the clubs in the metropolitan dis
trict will be the scene of this important
uvent The -women's national champion
ship 'will be held in the West, and Phila
delphia wilt be the scene of the women's
Eastern championship and the Grlscom
Cup matches. It Is quite likely that the
Lesley Cup matches will be played in
Philadelphia, as well.
Alooc this line it would ba & good idea
(or the United States Golf Association to
2a!ow tho plan of our British cousins.
The scene of a British championship Is
known several years In advance of the
meeting, so there is no hurry and hustle
at the last minute to set the courses In
shape. Of course, on the other side the
championship could be held in the south
of England one year anoV In the north of
Scotland the next year, and to us, used
-to magnificent distances, they would not
be very r apart First-hand Informa
tion about the courses in different parts
Of this country is hard for the Nominat
ing Committee to set, but a start could
be made along that line, and In a few
years we could have a ohamplonshlp roV
and courses could be plaed on it only
-sftar careful x3rainaUon, not only in re
gard to the clasa oi tne course, but its
accessibility- and ability to accommodate
the bout or golfers who eater national
championships must also be considered,

PERSONAL TOUCHES IN
Connie Mack announced at noon today
that "Eddie" Collins, .considered the
brainiest man In baseball today, and who
has been a member of the Ath'letics since
1D06, had been sold to Charles Comlskey's
Chjcago club, 'When Connie talked over
the telephone this mornlnc; he stated the
consideration would not be made public
at this time. The sale of Collins fol
lowed the secret conference held at the
Bellevue-Stratford InBt Sunday account
of which was published exclusively in the
Eenino liKvasn yesterday wherl Mack.
Comlsltey ond others attended The fans
linve become more or- less accustomed to
unusual 'announcements by Connie lately,
but this' latest' bit 6t news la unquestlon
ably the trtost important yet made.
The fact that the University of Pennsylvania
football team of 1014 voted that Oeorgo
Brooke waa Incompetent as a coach waa in
Itself bad enough. The action showed a
ktartllng lack of tact, an overpowering lgao
rance of the ethics of sportsmanship and a
iirutal desire to humiliate a fellow creature
But worse than that was the true motive a
the bottom of tho attack on Brooke, ."hen
the real design behind this Insidious ballot Is
analyied. It is not difncult to see that th;
team simply wished to shift the burden of
responsibility from Its own shoulders, 'o
those of the head coach. No one will deny
that the Penn eleven as Individuals were en
tirely responsible for the ghastly showing
made on the gridiron in 1014, at the same time
they certainly cannot lustly gather together
all of their many defects and cast them on
another The Penn team did collectively what
not one ot them would have had the nerve to
do Individually There Isn't a man on the lied
and Blue squad. It Is to be hoped, who would
so lower himself after a game had been played
as to go to a reporter wliom he knew and who
would print what he said, and tell that same
reporter that the nun next to htm In the line
had been responsible and not he for the gains
made through a psrtlcular, point, yet what
each one would declare In the individual as a
despicable act, they did In concert They at
tempted to flee from publlo opinion of their
ability by gathering together In secret, and
quietly otlng themselves a clean slate at the
expense of thtlr coach.
The Fennsylvanlan'a attitude editorially Is
