Special Corrcsponiene*
PINEHURST. N. C Jan. 2.~Gol
,ach as A. Lucien Walker jr., captan
of the Columbia team, played to-da;
was close to unbeatable, and the Ne^
Yorker easily won the final of th
mid-winter tournament for the eecon,
year in succession. He beat C. ^
Danforth, of Long Island, 7 and 5, bu
.hcy played all the boles, and Walke
made the excellent card of 39 out an?
But for two stymies Walker probabl:
wonld have got out in 37, for a card o:
71, as he was away from the hole foi
pntts of less than three feet whei
Stymied. His driving, approaching ant
putting were exceptionally good, ant
Ms opponent had small chance.
Walker drove S00 yards off the fiftt
tee, helped by a downhill roll, anc
with a splendid approach with a mashi?
niblick laid his ball dead for whai
would have been * "birdie" there hac
Danforth's putt not stymied him. Tht
ultimate winner played the tenth
which is uphill and across a pond, in
rare style. The drive carried 26C
yards; he was at the edge of the green
in two, and a fifteen-foot putt gave
him a three.
At the thirteenth a chip shot ovei
the mounds instead of the usual run-up
was both skillful and nervy golf
solved a difficulty in a way which en?
abled Walker to get a par 4 after a

I Izzy Kaplan Is a Hold-Out
foins Babe Ruth in Demanding an Increase
By W. O. McGechan
"Well, maybe I shouldn't see you so much this year," remarked Izzy
Kaplan as he waddled into the sporting department. "No, I ain't going
back to Russia, but you can believe me or not, Russia ain't so rotten there
now, on account vodka is anyhow better than wooden alcohol, and you
don't have to listen to Emma Goldstein if you don't want to.
"I ain't going away at all. I am a holder-out like Baby Ruthstein,
of the Boston Sox baseballers, who says that he must have twenty thou?
sand dollars cash in the hand to hit run homes. He is holding out -till
he gets it, and Harry Frazee says that if he should hang by a rope until
he gets it he should have a stiff neck.
"Twenty thousand dollars is a lot of jake for a baseballer to get,
end he ain't worth it. With me it is different, because I am not a loafer
and I got it a lot of brains. Brains is funny things. Some fellers get
them by the colleges, but not so much of them. With me I got it my
brains by experience, knocking around and mixing up with a lot of high
toned people. Of course I was a smart scholar in Russian when I went
to school in Kovno to commence with.
"But from what they told it to me this feller Baby Rutstein ain't
got a brain in his head, on account they are all in his bat, which is made
from wood, too. Moreover, if they built it higher fences, on the base
balling joints he wouldn't run home so many times either. And the life
of a baseballer is a loafer's life anyhow. With me I am all the time
busy thinking up new ideers, and I give you my word that sometimes my
brains is nearly worn out, but I don't get no twenty thousand dollars a
year for it neither.
"Chack Dempsey is another holder-out, and I got to admit it that
he ain't no piker. He is holding out for a half of one mililon dollars,
and he don't care who gets it the other half. And if Dempsey has got
brains then I am King Solomon, which he had nothing but brains. And a
box fighter is a loafer anyhow and not a real'fighter.
"I was talking to Moe Koenigstein, which he was a fighter in the
Twenty-seven Divisions in France, and he was in more fights than Chack
Dempsey. I asked him, 4Moe, is there much money in the fighting business
in the army?' And Moe answered me that he got thirty dollars a month,
which with the War Rich Insurance and a lot of other things made it about
seven dollars cash in the hand.
"I said to him, 'Moe, why didn't you be a business man like Chack
Dempsey and say that you must have half a million dollars cash or you
should be a holder-out and not sign it the papers to fight with the Kaiser?'
But Moe he only looked kind of sad and he said, 'If I told it that to the
sergeant he would poke me in the eye. It was no time to remember that
you were a business man. Supposing that we was all business men like
Chack Dempsey, the Chermans would have all the hat check privileges
in New York before me and Secretary of War Becker could come to terms
about the way the purse should be split up.'
"But, of course, the war was not a business, because I was in it
myself in the Signaling Corpse taking pictures, and I gave the Agitated
Cheneral of the army a lot of good advice, which if he should have
taken it the war could have been a whole lot cheaper. I didn't hold out
and tell the Agitated Cheneral that I should have half a million before
I should tell him how to run it the war. For making pictures I got only
the same amount of cellery a3 a second louie. For my brains I didn't
charge the government one cent. I acted just like I had no brains at all.
"But now I am out of the army, so I am holding out. I see that the
buttonhole makers also is holders-out. Well, don't it take just as much
brains to make it a good buttonhole as it does to hit it a run home? I'll
bet that Baby Ruthstein and Chack Dempsey should starve to death
making buttonholes.
"Everybody is a holder-out this season. It ain't Emma Goldstein's
fault neither, because she has been imported to Russia. From the way
I have been looking at it everybody wants that he should get more and
do less than last year, until finally nobody would do nothing at all and
there won't be nothing to get. I ain't that way, you understand. I
wouldn't be a holder-out too long until maybe there would be nothing to
hold out from. I got it too much brains that I should be so foolish.
"And I should say the same thing to Baby Ruthstein and Chack
Dempsey and all the other fellers that is holders-out. With my brains,
of course I know when to stop holding out, but those two loafers some
day should go too far and so will all of the holders-out, including even
the buttonhole makers, which have more brains than Ruthstein and
Dempsey, and that ain't saying a whole lot either.
"Well, so long. Before I should go, though, you should do me for
a favor. Talk it over with the big boss, and if he should say that he
intentioned to get it another man on account I am a holder-out you
should say that I will quit holding out. Because I got it brains, and a
man whieh he has it enough brains knows when to quit holding out. I
will be down at Solomon's unless he should be a holder-out for a dime
more for a cup of coffe. You couldn't telL It is got so that life in the
United States is just one holding out after another."

.-hurst Golf
Miss Helme
Leads at Golf
Making 'Oners'
English Player Performs
Feat Twice Within
24 Hours at Dieppe
! A man golfer considers himself
favored of fate if he is able to make
a hole in one stroke during the first
five years of his career on the links,
and ?f he should repeat the perform?
ance during that period he feels him?
self lifted to the seventh heaven of
dehght. Women players, being less
numerous, naturally make compara?
tively fewer "oners," and the lucky
player is looked on with great envy
by her less fortunate sisters.
There are a certain few golfers in
the country, amateur and professional
who seem to have a predilection for
holing/ their tee shots. An instance
of this is Mike Brady, who not only
has the distincetion of getting down
in one on numerous occasions, but
has "done the trick" twice in the
same day. Then, on tho other hand,
there is Francis Ouimet, former na?
tional open and amateur titleholder,
who never has been able to join the
"one" ranks.
To Miss E. F. Helme, one of the
best of the English players, goes the
credit of holing her tee shot twice
within twenty-four hours on the same
hole. It was at Dieppe some years
ago, the first recognized competition
in which she took part. She made the
fourth hole in one stroke late in the
evening, and early the next day in a
medal event duplicated that perform?
ance, and subsequently won the.
The occasion called for a mashie
shot from one side of a ravine to the
other, a perfectly open hole with no
possibility of deception, for the green
was perched on the hillside. The fol?
lowing morning Miss Helme again
started around, and there were some
very long odds offered and accepted
about her chances of doing it a third
time. Needless to say there was no
such luck, but she did get a 3 there,
not discreditable under the circum?
In those days the events for women
were scheduled -at nine holes, the idea
being that it was too exhausting for
them to attempt a full round. So far
as is known, Miss Helme holds the
women's record for two holes in one
within twenty-four hours.
Willie Ogg, former Dedham profes?
sional now at the Atlanta Athletic
Club, is of the opinion that the South
will within a short time have all the
champions, including the national open,
amateur and women's titleholders. Miss
Alexa Stirling, the young woman who
has twice captured the national, is a
resident of Atlanta, while Bobby Jones,
runner-up in the amateur at Oakmont,
is from the same town. Perry Adair
also hails from that section.
Most critics agree that it Is only
a question of time when Jones will
win the classic, while Adair is a
= erious contender in any tournament.
That, in Ogg's opinion, disposes of
two of the big titles.
Regarding the open possibility from
that district, he puts forward J. Doug?
las Edgar, winner of the Canadian
championship. The Englishman made
the seventy-two holes in 279, fifteen
strokes better than his nearest op?
ponents, Karl Keffer, Jim Barnes and
Bobby Jones, who tied at second place
with 294.
Buffalo Woman "Wins

ers. The former's score was 62?7?55

Mike Ryan Goes
Back to Coach
Colby Athletes
Former Marathon Record
Holder Also to Estab?
lish New A. A. V.
Association in Maine
Mike J. Ryan, former Irish-American i
A. C. marathon runner, left last night!
to assume his duties again as track I
coach at Colby College, and, incidental?
ly, to start a movement ior the estab?
lishing of a new association of the
Amateur Athletic Union in Maine. This
work has been placed in Ryan's hands
by Herman Obertv.bbesing and Fred?
erick W. Rubien, members of the Na?
tional Redistricting Committee.
The winner of the Boston A. A. mara?
thon in 1912 in record time has been
away ?rom Colby College for two and
a half years. During the interim he
served as athletic instructor at several
of the army concentration camps in the
Metropolitan district. A short time
ago he was granted his release from
Camp Upton.
According tc Ryan, the consummation
of the new districts seems assured. He
says Colby, Maine and Bates have al?
ready announced their intention of
joining, while Bowdoin has asked to be
excused for the time being, but to be
considered as a prospective member.
Ryan will endeavor to get all the ath?
letic clubs throughout the state in line.
Ryan faces a hard task in building
up a track and field squad for Colby. He
will be compelled to develop new mate?
rial. Mike will take a team to the
Boston A. A. games for the match relay
race among the Maine colleges.

Columbia Masters Retain
Lead for Honors at Chess
Local Players Overwhelm
Harvard, and Princeton
Shuts Out Yale Team
One-sided play was the order in the
second round of tbe twenty-seventh
annual chess tournament among Colum?
bia, Harvard, Yale and Princeton, con
fested at the Brooklyn Chess Club
yesterday morning and afternoon. At
the close of play the champion team
of Columbia University held the lead
with a total of 6*-_ points, followed by
Princeton with 5H, Harvard with 4
and Yale last, without so much aa a
draw to her credit.
Harvard's players, affeer sweeping
the board against Yale in the opening
round Thursday night, promised to
make matters interesting for the Blue
and White yesterday. The New York?
ers, however, brought the Crimson
players down quickly by winning two
of the games soon after the luncheon
intermission and eventually winning
the match by 4 to 0. The last two
games were stubbornly fought and
lasted 66 and 67 moves, respectively.
This gave Columbia two niatches
out of three on the schedule, with one
more to be played against Yale in the
final round to-day. Old Eli is in a
crippled condition and was again
beaten by 4 to 0 by Princeton yester?
M. A. Schapiro, '23; C. B. Isaacson,
'21; P. Wolf son '22, and W. R. Thomp?
son, '23, were the players who made it
possible for Columbia to blank Harvard.
Schapiro and Thompson were the first
to dispose of their opponents, the for?
mer winning a Queen's Pawn game in
38 moves and the latter a Ruy Lopez in
Isaacson and Wolfson were kept at
their boards for more than six hours
before and after luncheon. Isaacson,
who with the black pieces adopted the
Center Counter Gambit against John?
son, of Harvard, worked out a par?
ticularly fine- ending. Wolfson, on the
other hand, had himself to blame for
the long session, because--after getting
Frey into a corner, he permitted him
to escape. The Columbia man could
have forced cheekmate had* he sacri?
ficed his queen at the right moment,
but this he overlooked.
In the Yale-Prinoeton match Cham
berlin opened with the Ruy Lupez, won
one of Caims's pieces and scored the
game after 29 moves. Miles, of Prince?
ton, made amends for his poor showing
against Isaacson, of Columbia, in the
first match and played aggressive chess
against Brubacher, of Yale, who had

Will Prices Come Down
When Packers Unscramble?
"The consumer doesn't care a snap of his fingers about the dissolution of a trust unless it means
lower prices or better quality, or both," says the New York Globe, which sees "no reason to believe that the
withdrawal of the packers from all lines except meat and dairy products will benefit the consumer an iota."
On the other hand, Attorney-General Palmer telegraphs THE LITERARY DIGEST that "The prac?
tical benefits to the public wiH come from opening up the channels of trade in food lines to competing pro?
ducers and distributers of food freed from the menace of the all-powerful packers' organization." In answer
to the "Digest's" interrogation on this point Mr. J. Ogden Armour telegraphs that "it is impossible to forecast
the probable effect the dissolution will have upon the high cost of living." Messrs. Louis F. Swift, Thomas
E. Wilson, E. A. Cudahy, and Edward Morris practically agree with him in that conclusion.
There is scarcely any other subject that so vitally concerns the public as that covered by the leading
article in THE LITERARY DIGEST for January 3rd. The "Digest" has secured statements from the
highest sources representative of every angle of opinion upon the recent decision of the packers to withdraw
from all lines except meat and dairy products.
