in U. S. and Canada.
No Definite Action Taken at Meeting
of Royat and Ancient Club of St.
Andrews Matter Seems to Bo
In Abeyance at Present.
Although the Royal pad Ancient club
of St. Andrews nt Its last meeting
took no definite notion on the .stand
ardization of golf balls, the mutter
was discussed. Prior to the meeting
It was reported on seemingly good nu
thorlty that It was the Intention of

writes Joe Davis lu Chicago Tribune.
la order to give the golf trado a
chance to unload Its stock of heavier
balls, It was proposed to make tho
change take effect at the cloe of the
For the time being the matter seems
to bo In abeyance, and, while tho mnt
tor of standnrdlzntlon never has been
olllclnlly discussed by the United
States Golf association, the national
body would have to take ntllclnl action
If tho Hrltlsh authorities decided to
adopt n standard ball.
Although the V. S. G. A. and tho
Royal nnd Ancient club differ lu their
interpretation of the umnteiir rule, tho
only difference In the playing rules Is
that the V. S. O. A. "auctions the uso
of the mallet-headed putter, which Is
barred In Great Rrltaln.
Commenting on the proposed legis
lation the Canadian Golfer says:
"It Is sincerely hoped that tho rules

Ing countries. In Canada the rules
nnd regulations of the gnnie as laid
down by St. Andrews nre faithfully
followed, but It Is u grave question If
nny such change ns that mooted In
connection with the standardization of
the ball would be acceptable here. Tho
rules of golf committee must iinsten
slowly,' very slowly, before making
nny such rash decision. It certainly
would be retrograde legislation.
"Tho chief objections made to the
rubber-cored ball nre that It gives n
good response to n half-hit shot ; that
It makes recovery from bayards too
easy, so that the bad shot does not
receive the punishment It deserves,
nnd that Its resiliency makes It much
harder to control on a hard green and
so Introduces nn element of luck In
approaching and putting.
"All these objections apply most
strongly to the llontcr and much less
strongly to tho small, heavy ball, which
it Is proposed to abandon. One thing
Is sure: If St. Andrews does attempt
to Rtnndarrilrc the 'iliutor,' Its ruling
will not be observed In C'nnada or the
States. It will commit golfing suicide
ns far as Its lutliience here Is con
cerned." MADE LITTLE ON BIG BATTLE

"After settling for the arena and
