Golf

For the first time in Tulane's history a golf team was turned out at the institu-
tion in 1924. There was a surprisingly large number of youthful Walt Hagens hid-
ing their light under a bushel, and quite a number of entries were filed for the elim-
ination flight. A foursome was selected to represent the university at Atlanta's S. I. C.
tournament, and the following men were chosen: Fred Lamprecht, Joseph Henican,
Hough Kohlmeyer, and Irving Weil.

With the single exception of Lamprecht, however, the Greenie representatives all
fell by the roadside. "Limber," however, fought his way to the finals, and for the
second time in two years was nosed out of the championship by Cranshaw, of Alabama.

Prospects for golf in 1925 are exceptionally bright. Lamprecht has returned for

his last year, and will surely participate. Wehere venture into prophecy, and predict
that "Limber" will be denied no longer, and will return from the Atlanta finals bear-

ing the championship title that the Cranshaw family has kept from him for two years.

Baseball

[HE 1924 baseball team, under Coach "Monk" Simons, experienced the most successful

season a Tulanc nine has experienced since the reinauguration of baseball as a major

sport at Tulanc, three years ago. The Green Wave won nine games, lost four, and
did not drop a single series.

The 1924 team was composed of the following: Catcher, S. Robinson; pitchers, Hoffman,

Lautenschlaeger, and Flournoy; infielders, Flournoy, Carraway, Lind, Morgan, Mines; out-

fielders, Martin, Dufour, E. Henican, V. Robinson.

The Greenies boasted, in Freddie Hoflfman, one of the greatest college pitchers in the South.

He won eight straight games for Tulane against the best teams of the South and Middle West.

The Greenies pried the lid off the season with a 5 to 2 victory over the Mississippi Aggies,

Hoffman holding the Farmers at bay while his teammates battered Lefty Bolton for enough runs

to win the game. In the second game with the Aggies, Lautenschlaeger held them to one lone

hit, but was outlucked in a 3 to 2 affair and lost the decision.

Illinois, with a large crew of big league prospects, and "Red" Grange in tow, next engaged

the Greenies, and, in the first game of the series, Fred Hoffman turned them back with a 7 to o

whitewash. A 10 to 3 triumph for the invaders in the following game evened the series.
A road trip carried Tulane to Oxford, Miss., where "Ole Miss" and the Wave split a two-

game series. Hoffman won a free-hitting 11 to 9 victory after the Greenies had chased three

pitchers. Unable to touch Briggs in the second game, the Greenies lost, 7 to o.

A trip to Tigertown was next in order, and again Tulane split. Hoffman held the Tigers
safe in the first game and Tulane won handily, score 7 to 3. In the next game "Monk" sent

"Peggy" Flournoy to the box, and the big Greenie first-sacker showed his twirling ability when

he gave up but six scattered hits, only to lose by a 4 to 3 count.

A mid-week game with St. Stanislaus put Tulane on edge for the Tigers in New Orleans one
week after the Bengals had played host up the state. Tulane won the game from the Bay nine,

12 to 5, after trailing behind for some innings.

Freddie Hoffman finished his college career in a blaze when he pitched both games in the

Tiger series, and his iron man act was a tremendous success. Tulane copped the first game,

8 to 4, Hoffman giving way to Flournoy in the box after he had held L. S. U. scoreless for six

innings. In the final game of the year, Hoffman engaged Bobby Dugas in a pitchers' battle,

which Carl Lind broke up in the ninth with a double that sent Carraway scurrying across the

pan with the deciding run in the 2 to i struggle.
