Oae-Shot Hole* /
"The object of this article is to
bring before the American golfers
an idea which has been simmering
the writer's brain for some considerable
time, and is now being
actusdly brought into existence in
"Ever since I took up the most
fascinating study of golf course designing
I have been impressed by
the value of the one-shot hole. It
is the one type of hole in a course
where all classes of players start
from the tee on equal terms. Many
a fine hole which has been designed
as a drive and a long iron
shot, becomes to the phenomenally
long driver merely a drive and a
half mashie shot. Other long holes
suffer in proportion, but the oneshot
hole is affected only by wind,
and If properly designed this will
not help one player more than another.
For practice alao the one-shot
hole is perfect. At most, three clubs
are required and the golfer who is
an expert in their use will not find
himself far behind in the course of
a year's play. Then there is the
question of spare ground. Many
clubs have from six to ten acres of
ground and don't quite know what
to do with it.
Vary la Length.
"Last autumn my friend. Lord
Mkrthcliffe, was consulting us about
some alterations to his course at
North Foreland and mentioned he
had some six acres of ground .to
spare, and asked me if I could make
any suggestions for dealing with it.
Here was my chance, and I at one*
ofTered to design him an eighteenhole
course of one-shot holes. He
agreed without a moment's hesitation.
and the work is now well on
the way to completion. The holes
vary in length from 85 to 180
yards. There is no crossing; no
danger spots. All types of oneshot
holes are found. Each hole
could take Its place on a championship
"Thhe photograph herewith shows
nine holes with tees, bunkers, hills
and valleys. All are modeled to
acale. For contractors we make a
separate model for each green and
ali they have to do is to follow the
horisontal and vertical scale, and
the result is a green, exactly as
thought out by the designer. No
sketches or plans can compare with
this method of course construction.
Method of Hazards.
"We use this method also in making
hazards and by this means are
enabled to improve the looks of

latere la no longer any reason
why golf courses should be disfigured
by hideous banks and
straight lines. ,
"To start with, there arl many
players who do not want to be always
playing round a long course.
Players of almost all handicaps can
compete together on equal terms,
and as only three clubs are required
the services of a caddie are not necessary.
The value of practice on
such a course cannot be overestimated.
and the time required to
play round would not exceed onehalf
of what is required for a full
round in an ordinary course. What
nicer end to a day's golf than a
round after tea on such a course?
The upkeep would be moderate as
only the putting greens would require

Police in Athens
Use Spiked Plank
To Stop Speeders
Athenian policemen have a rather
unique method of getting and punishing
speeders. The town cannot
afford motorcycle officers, so each
one is equipped with a plank studded
If he sees a car coming up the
lane that shows any sign of not
keeping the lawful pace, he thrown
his plank out on the road. If the
car Is speeding, its tires are punctured.
If not. it can stop before it
reaches the plank.
According to the report of accidents
and casualties issued by th?
Texas railroad commission, the motorcycle
Is the safest means of transportation.
at least In so far as railroad
grade crossings are concerned
The motorcycle shows the lowest
percentage of accidents of any of
the vehicles listed. Even the num

CAMPERS ON P01
Meet to Com
An lntercamp reggtta In Angust
Is the chief subject ot Interest to i
hundred! of Washingtonians camped
along the shores of the Potomac.
Throughout the season the regatta
has been talked of and when Colonial
Canoe Club and Rock Haven
staged a successful doal contest recently,
representatives of other
camps decided the time had come
to test the prowess of all.
The boys ran into a piece of touch
luck when they attempted to (el
together and set a date and make
other plans for the regatta. Representatives
of most of the camps
were Instructed to appear at the
Raccar Canoe Club Camp last
Thursday night. but among the few
who failed to receive notice of the
meeting were the Raccar boy*.
When the campers appeared, singly
In m?it cases, they discovered that
th*e advertised hosts knew nothing
of the conference. That night, announcement
of the meeting reached
Raccar but too late. However the
regatta will be held, and another
meetlnr will be scheduled In the
tp or Dm River.
Campers cannot agree on which
section of the river the regatta
should be held. Some favor the
lower section of the Potomac, because
of the finish line on the
"Three Sisters Island" and because
the races could be viewed better
there than further up the river, but
others are strongly behind^ the plan
to stage the regatta farther toward
