THE EVENING WORLD, BATUEDAY, AUGUST 7, 1920. BABE RUTH NOW MAKES GOOD , EARLY SEASON PREDICTION AND REAPS GOLDEN HARVEST - ' - .Yankee Star, Greatest Rgure in Sport World, Swamped With . Fabulous Movie Picture Con tracts for Crashing Out Homers Exactly As, He Predicted Before the Baseball Season. N r - By Robert Edgren. ' CWrlghl. MM. by Tit Tntt I-uMlaking Co. (Tht New tnl Ttrilu World). I NEVER asked Babe Ruth if ho Is a seventh son of a seventh son. JU sever told me If any of hla ancestors w-re Hcotch seers. Hut Just before the pretest baseball season opened Babe 'confided to mo hU Idea of the future. And belinv me, any time Dane (tart prophesying after thl I'm KOinjc to listen. Bald Uabe: To going to be In de ouuid next winter. There'll be a M ot them trailing me and trying to tell me to sign on the dotted line. I've just turned down an offer of $10,000 to sign up for one moving picture at the end si tho season. Nice mosey U turn down, isn't HT But I think the Idea or a big movie company offering me 110,000 to pose In a picture is a joke. Tbey figure on spending (20,000 on thn picture. They spend millions Earning out pictures. A hundred thousand is nothing to those birds. I . figure 110,000 to them 1 Just a little seed for the canary. Tbey said It would only be a couple of weeks' work easy picking. ' ' "Ten thousand Iron men look tolg to me. X remember when 123 a week YocOted like Rockefeller Income. I'm tot figuring (10,000 small money, but tile la business, and the tea Is smalt 'Mcnpared to what those guys can clean up. If they'd said tZO.000 I Blight nave considered It, nut I turn ad lie (proposition dotr flat. They tj. f Can come to me at the end of the ne-- MB. IX Z uon t make good this year I Wont b. worth the ten and I won't wont It. If I make good I'll be wrth ft bunch more, and that's what I am going after. I told thorn to see me tt thn end of the summer and fix their terms to suit what I'll be worth to them then. I've had theatrical offers and all sorts of offers, to sign up a year tn advance. Nothing doing. I can '(vest that borne run record any time 1 want to. and this year rm.rolnr to ': bust it ao for they'll talk kbout It when rm sitting up In the grand stand wcarlnax white whiskers. I love Dos con, but I never felt happy around this guy Froze. I'm going to be with people I like this year, and 111 be able to, play ball. You watch me." ABE CAN WALLOP IN ANY OA ME Babe said a few more things, lie old that next winter he's going to bits a golf ball further than any hu saan being ever cracked one before. Babe admitted that he has two ambl. Hons. He didn't core to be President of the United States or anything like that, but he Intended to show the world he was a regular boll player, and then go out to California and win ft SI bet by trimming Morrison, tho I A. A. C. professional. Morrison bought gas for the fllwer all last winter at Ruth's expense, - Babe Ruth Is thaJnost famous ath lete In the world. He s as well known all over the globe right now as John JU Sullivan was thirty years ago. Perhaps he's even better known. Have you ever figured how the great American game has spread during the past few years? They play It In Japan as enthusiastically as its have some corking good ball teams. They play It In China, India, 81am, Australia, New Zealand. Even Eng land (s waking up to baseball. Prance has several leagues, and one ball game played near Parts drew over 80,000 spectators. Baseball Is thn national sport In Cuba, and we've scon some mighty good players from the sugar cane Island. Canadian sol diers made American baseball" fa vorite game in Europe early In the war, and when 2,000,000 American born and bred baseball players went over there was more baseball played up near tne MUvdnnburg line than the whole world ever sow before. l recently had a letter from a friend, of mine, George Heed, visiting In, Vlrn.ll IT- . , J. i I w, iv.iuu Villf-rj ayvru oin full blast In Klo Ameriuin baseball, American boxing ad hoi iff racing. rlE'8 KNOWN U M-MIKilAN" IN JAPAN.

American Champion Confi dent Invading British Star Will be Stopped at Toledo Next Week for National Open Title. By Walter Hagen. Open Qolf Champion. TOLEDO. Aug. 7. The stngo In all sot fortho national open cham ptonshlp here on tho Inncss Country Club link ntartlnr Tuesday. Every pro In the) country as well as many of our lead ing amateurs have been looking forward-to this event all summer. The fact that there Is an Inter national Interest In the open this year makes It doubly attractive 'n.nd n. fine, flnlrl nf 198 playnra are paired up waiting for the call to the tlrst ten. With Var don and Hay on hand It means that we American golfers will have to ho at our best to keep the title from go ing over to the other side of the At lantic As present holder of the cup I feel a responsibility that T would not ordinarily have. Last year when I won at Urae Ultra t was not In tbo position of defending thn title and there was not so much to worry about. ' However, with Mike Urady, Jim Barnes, Jock Hutchinnnn, Hob Mac Donald and a fow others to hnlp, the A-mcrlcon Interests should bo well guarded. Only ono time In tho history of the championship has It hoti won by an outsider. This was in 1900 hen Vardon paid his flrst visit toVmerica, Twenty years have passed since ehn. but time In golf Is net such a handi cap as In other sports. Vardon Is stUl the same beautiful golfer that he wna then, and still Is capable of very f.no golf. The veteran may htivo lout srnn of his distance In the passing years, but ho is still able to score with the best of them. EXPECTS RAY TO CAUSE MORE TROUBLE THAN VARDON. Our own experts rather look to his sldo partner Ray to cause us more trouble than the veteran vardon. Kay will surprise those who have not seen nls longTlrtving. I am sure ho Is hit ting tho ball further from the tee than Abo Mitchell 'at the -present time. -Should nay continue to putt an! ap proach as he has in tne last row ex hibitions it win taxe a lot to bent mm. Two other weal known British golfers who have, taken positions In this country aro playing In their first open over here. Laurie Ayton came over from St. Andrews and brought with hint a very nne game. He was well spoken of on tho other side. Charles Mayo Is an Engllah golfer. and arrived In this country a few weeks before wo left for' England. He Is an Internationalist, and whllo he nover won a big champlonniilp has always played close to the top. Starting off on Tuesday morning I paired with. Tommy Armour of Scot land, and one of the best British am ateurs. He won the Frohch amateur championship the same week I an nexed tho French open. He Is a flno chap and a good golfer. Ho may not stand out prominently In our open, but If on his gamo should do woll at the Englncorn' Club In tho nmateur championship. Armour cams over on the same ahlp with me, and we had many long golf chats together. Tho report was circulated that he Intend ed to bocorno a pro, but be assured mo thore Is no truth In tho state- ment. REGRETS ABSENCE OF OUIMET IN TOURNAMENT. Twelve amateurs are entered la this tournament, but one of our best Is Oulmet, not down to play. Wo re gret this, as he hag won tho title and has proved that be has the class. Tho amateurs must look to Bobby Jones as their one best bet. Bobby Is good enough to win a big event of this kind and may surprlso a lot of peo ple. I wan surprised recently when look ing over tho list of winners In tho national opon. American golf talent bos held the honor of winning this tournament for the last ten years. A decade of golf has passed since a foreign-born pro has won our title, al though just previous to this It was rather tho exception to find a home bred even among tho leaders. It apoaks rather highly for our own golf. as tho quality of play exhibited by tne toreign-Dorn goirera has boon or the very highest order. The flrst to break the ice of the homebred golfers was Httle Johnnie McDermott, who won In 191 and again In 1912. The previous year he ,11 w.lhV tU- amllh 1..., ).. 1 .-... " . I. .-.-. IL.....V.., "U. lUIb li, the play off. After Johnnie bnpko through, no foreign-born player ever got the title book. Francis Oulmet won In 1913. I won my first title tn 1914 and then Jerry Travers won at Baltuarcl In 1915 and Chick Evans was successful the following year. After two years' iVntcrval during the war, I won again at Brae Burn, In the homebred ranks quite a few have come to the -front In the las inxce or lour ycurs. Leo uiegei is a good golfer and one who Is Improv ing very fast In tournament play. Emmet French Is another star and so Is Charles Hoffner, Qeorge Bowden, George McLean, Jack Dowllng, Eddlo Loos, miko uruay ana the two Mac Namara are two sterling golfers who are bound to shine near the top sooner or later. The course here Is a good one. Donald Ross went over It thoroughly last Spring and added many traps. The greens are good and the golf should lie of the highest orlcr. We aro looking forward to a week of excite ment. Barnes and myself regret that we aro not to play against Vardon and Ray In an international four ball matoh to-morrow. Our matches now stand ono vlotory for each aide, and wo hope to settle the dispute at To ledo. I understand they are waltlrur for some word to oome from areat Britain beforo meoiJng us in an of ficial maicn. lQorjiUht.'aSM. la li Sell tacAtiJjjicJ Si.
