Beginning at 8:25 this morning,
the pick of the cracks of England,
Scotland. Australia. Canada and this
country will tee off at 5-minule
intervals in the most nerve-racking
test * any big tournament has ever
provided. For the qualifying round
is bat 18 holes this year, and
youngsters and veterans both will
be fighting as if their immortal
souls depended on the holing of a
It*? Aiyhod)'* Race.
Pick a winner? It's next to impossible.
In such a short qualifying
test, any one of the "big ten"
may get left in the ruck and fail
to make the select 72 or more wnj
will fight it out for the title on
Thursday and Friday, the two big
days to come.
Most of the "big fellows" will be
content to qualify, and then put on
steam* for the 72-hole circuit for the
championship, the cup. and the big

The large field must rest content |
with its various practice rounds

the test which begin* today for selection
of half the 260 entrants.
Various f?uew?ps have been made j
with regard to the score which will

possibly 79?to secure a much-,
coveted place in the charmed circle

to play In a rainstorm or high wind, j
then, naturally, the scoring will be
There has been much low scoring,!
done during the past few days, but!
this really amounts to nothing. The l|
score one turns in when playing a|
friendly four-ball match may very j
often bear small resemblance to i
that recorded by the relentless pencil
during th* actual tournament.
While a low score In the practice
round* is usually gratifying to the |
one who n.akes it. it really is of no
consequence and might even be regarded
as an ill omen. The game i
of golf has Its iips and downs with j
a great predominance of the latter, j
One very rarely remains at the top j I
of his game for many days. So, the
man who is burning up the course'
in practice can very rarely hold his,
stride through the actual tourna-1
ment. Tt is for this reason that the |
real top-notchers are taking things j
easy at present?Jus? feeling out I

Is due to Slip through and thera Is '
surely enough outside talen: to'
make a gallant bid unless one of
the biff Six runs yild and falr|y devours
the course. The amateur ar- I
ray, headed by Evans and Jnnes. is
strong. but these are the only two,
Ih this division conceded a chance.
In addition to the championship
extra feature, have been added that :
should make the occasion notable
In other ways. Jock Hutchison liar
brought the British open cup to
Columbia, and this far-famed t nd ,
ancient trophy will be placed sM- !
by side with the American open cup j
returned by Ted Bay. The two
greatest trophies of the game will |
be set up on the clubhouse lawn
under the guardianship of two Mariae*
and on Friday afternoon l'res- !
ident Harding will present the A-nerI
w an cup to its new own* r. |i
Hutchison can come through again. '
the amazing Jock will be th? first j
man on record to hold both To- '
phles at one and the sam- n. ?ment j
In his tw0 freckled, sun-tanm-d
* '? (' ? ? View.
Another feature tomorrow will be !
a putting match between Hutcii'.j?n
, and Mr;. T. W. Brahany, and a Trial
exhibition by Klrkwood, the Australian
Merlin of wood and iron.
Considering all these spicy episo-J.-s
Columbia Club officials have overlooked
no chance to make this the
I greatest of all American opens,
where tremendous galleries will b- !
given the time of their young or I
ancient lives. If they don't get a
sufficient number of thrills by Frlda>
night, they should move .to Bussia I
or the Balkans. So far as the tour- I
t nament is concerned, our only pre- !
I diction to date is that when the;
British and American cups are;
flanked by two Marines, the stam- !
t / rcHe of photographers to the spot
will break the course record by i
| eight or ten jumps.
Secretary Winant Vanderpool and !
| staff are already on the scene with I
j President Howard Whitney and cab- j
]met arriving early today. In the I
meantime th? stage is now all set;
(for the opening gun when the first I
j qualifiers start forth and plate their'
fate upon the raw test of a single
18-hole campaign. Ideal weather is,
j promised, with no threat of unusual
warmth, where the only threat-'
; ening cloud against the horizon is1
| the possibility that one or more j
of the leading stars may fail to
j make the qualifying grade.
