66      HORSESHOE PITCHING ---- HOW TO PLAY THE GAME

     Ralph Spencer, Picher, Okla., entered this tournament, but his right arm began troubling him and he had to drop out. All ties were played off in 50-point games. Tie played for eleventh place resulted in Born winning, but another tie for twelfth place, which was again played 50-point games resulted as shown above. Loren May broke one of his shoes Friday, and a small steel sprinter entered the second finger of his right hand; this lost him a number of games and reduced his percentage of ringers. Six consecutive double ringers were pitched by Loren May in finishing his game with Buckman. This was a world's tournament record, since the complete written score records have been kept, as they have been since the St. Petersburg tournament in February, 1923. Five consecutive double ringers have been pitched a number of times before this in tournament games.
