Young Texan Laying Postwar Coif Plans Bj The Associated Press Dear Byron Nelson and Harold (Jug) McSpaden:' A young man named Jimmy De maret—you may recall him—is lay ing some deep, dark plans to move in on your easy pickings. In case the name escapes you, he’s that drawling Texas boy who won top money among you pros in 1940 by winning six out of nine ma jor tournaments including the Mas ters, Western open, National match play open and Oakland open. The six out of nine record still stands, I believe. “He says he’ll be tramping around on your toes again as soon as he finishes a little chore for Uncle Sam which has kept him busy for the last year or two. The fellow will be a money and victory hungry golfer, too, when this war is over. And you know from ex perience that means trouble. Moreover, he’ll be in shape, what with manicuring the golf course and instructing in the game at Bainbridge Naval Training Station where he’s classified as a physical instructor. Just the other day he took the course apart with a 30 for nine holes. Demaret says it will take only about a month of good competi tion to make him “a threat”, which isn’t good news—for you. “Also, Byron, he sides with Wal ter Hagen, Gene Sarazen and PGA Prexy Ed Dudley against your argument that match play isn’t as good a test of real golfing ability as medal play. Says he’d like a crack at you over 36 holes or so on the match basis when he gets in real shape again.” A FRIEND I WANTED TO BUY * Second-Hand Bicycles Pit KARDS 209 Market St. Dial 2-3224 * * ★ ★★ ★ ★★★ ★★★ Browns and Yanks Both Defeated BRUIN FANS SUPPORT TEAM FOR ROSEBOWL BY FRANK FRAWLEY LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17—UP>— If the UCLA Bruins live up to only half the advance predictions made for them so far by zealous supporters in the guise of neutral observers, they’ll have quite a football team this year. Some of those who have watch ed the Bruins and the University of Southern California in warmup games say that the Uclans are the team to beat for the western Rose Bowl nomination UCLA beat the El Toro, Calif., Marine Base eleven, coached by Dick Hanley and Cliff Battles, 10-9. The Marine team is jammed with big names in football. Then the Marines beat the Trojans, 14 to 13. But Babe Horrell, the UCLA coach, isn’t making apy predic tions. He has Bob Waterfield back. Waterfield was the all-Pacific Coast quarterback who led the 1942 Bruins to their first west coast title. He’ll help greatly. Seemingly, Joe Bruin is going to have lots of stuff in the line, an chored by Don Paul, one of the best of the centers in 1943. Herb Boom, a tackle from Phoenix, Ariz., and Jack Watts, a guard from Los Angeles, appear to be standouts. George Phillips, a fullback on the 1942 team, will alternate at quarter with Waterfield, who is a pass specialist. Cal Rossi, a sprinter and southpaw passer, of Santa Barbara, Calif., will spell Bert West at one backfield spot. West, who was with Washburn college last season, is highly re garded- Jack Boyd and Johnny Roesch are holdovers from the 1943 backfield. Dean Witt, weighing only 165 but very fast; Jerry Shipkey from USC, and Jack (Moose) Myers, a star in backing up the line, are the fullbacks.
