Boston terriers are next to the Air

baskets are entered at New York, there

few name more than one. Samuel R.

the Westminster Kennel Club. To
take the smooths first?which were by
far the stronger when Major August

Army Five Wins
An Exciting Game
From a Special Correspondent
WEST POINT, N. Y., Feb. 7.?The
Army won a close-margin victory again
this afternoon, defeating the fast St.
Lawrence University five, 29 to 26, in
an interesting contest. The visitors,
though light, flashed speed in abun?
dance and fought the army to a stand?
off throughout the first half, which
ended in a tie, 10?10.
Three minutes after the beginning
of the second period the cadets drew
away, and once led, 20 to 12, but the
upstatcrs, with Weiler and Barker
starring, shot some sensational bar-1
ksts from scrimmage, drawing too near j
for comfort a moment later, when the I
score read Army, 21, St. Lawrence, 18.
Both teams went to the limit during
the last few minutes, but the soldiers,
in excellent physical condition, dis?
played more speed and stamina and
won out in the last minute of play.
The Army Plebes won a much-need?
ed victory, when they defeated White
Plains High School, 50 to 12.

%gy c7 GRANJLANP RICE
(Copyright, 1920, New York Tribune Inc.)
"The trouble with most golfers," re- !
marked a cagey old Scotch professional
tbo other day, "is that the bigger the
match, the more important it. seems to j
bo, the harder they try and the harder ;
they hit at the ball."
"This is a human trait," he con
tinued, "but, of course, it should be the '
other way. Did you ever watch Chick ?
Evans closely in a championship !
match, especially in the open cham?
pionship? If you have, you will notice
that instead, of extending his swing he
shortens it to on ?y a three-quarter
stroke. Chick is an old campaigner.
He knows in any medal round that di?
rection is worth more than distance
without direction, and he goes hack to
safety first. You never sec him slug-J
ging- at the ball in one of those big
matches. He is out there swinging
easily and naturally, with his full
swing cut down and held under better ?
control, ft would he a great thing if ?
all golfers watched this point moro ;
The Old Timer was precisely correct.
We watched Chick Evans start his first
round at Brae-Burn last .June. We had
not seen him play since the pre-war
days' at Merion in 1916.
. It was our impression that he had ?
shortened his stroke to a three-quarter
swing. It was certainly not the full :
swing of 1916. There was no sign of
pressing. Yet he got all the distance I
that he needed and continued to hold ;
the middle of the course, in his first
thirty-six holes he was not in the rough ;
and he had no wild shot to a sand trap,!
right oi* left.
At the end of the first thirty-six \
holes he was the only golfer in the big
field who did not have a 6 in his card
nothing worse than 5's. If his extreme
steadiness from tee to green had been
followed by sound putting he would
have been well in front.
There were others outdriving him,
but he was not out there to win any
driving contest. He was out there to
tie "r best par by keeping down the |
The Sane Way
There are few wiser campaigners ;
than Frank Hoyt, of the Engineers'
Ciub. The veteran has been at the old
game through enough years to know.
He is one of the few who have profited
to the limit by experience.
If you will watch him in any tourna-1
ment or in any hard match you will '
observe this feature of his play:
For the first four or five holes *he
swings the club easily, making no ef?
fort to get distance. He is content to ;
merely clear the rough. But as he :
warms up to his work and gets going
he begins to hit a trifle harder, hole
by hole, until when the time arrives to
extend his swing he is getting from
twenty-five to forty yards more than ;
he did at the start. Long experience
has taught him that the start of a hard '?
round is no time to begin pressing;
that it is a much easier matter to take a I
lusty swing after the third or fourth :
hole has been played than it is from |
the first tee, where most golfers are a !
trifle self-conscious and muscularly
Yet the average golfer makes a wild
attempt to hit that first one ? mile, (
with the result that if you stand by
any first tee in a big tournament you i
will see the big majority of tee shots !
The Other Side
At Oakmont last August we watched
Bobby Jones in both practice and play. 1
In practice he was hitting every drive;
down the n iddle. But when it came
to match play he was a bit erratic off
the tee through most of the tourna-1
ment. He was getting tremendous dis- .
tances, but not nearly as straight as ,
we have seen him before.
We asked .Stuart Maiden, his old;
and first instructor, what the trouble
"Simple enough," said Maiden. "In !
practice he is hitting every ball per- j
fectly straight down the middle. But
in practice he is* swinging easily, keep
?ng hi.s natura! swing. In his matches1
he is trying to get just, a trifle more i
distance, lie is hitting just a little1
harder than lie should and the result!
is uncertain direction. It is the j
natural tendency of a seventeen-year
old boy to k?:ock the cover off. 1 have I
told him where the fault is, but it is!
something that only more experience
can prove to him. If he would stick
to his easy, natural swing, which has
a lot of natural power, he would not
only be straight down the middle, but
as far as any.man here."
Concerning the Duffer
This goes for the dufter, as well as
the stir. ?le has a mutch on which he
is extremely desirous of winning.
With this worthy purpose in view, he
steps up and opens tire with the Giant
Swing at the first tee. He is going to
win the entire match at the first hole.
And, taking this mighty wallop, he is
deeply annoyed to find that he has
smeared the ball.
If he would only step up and swing
easily at the start, letting the club do
a big part of the work as he keeps his
body out of the swing in a simple ef?
fort, he would be astonished to see
how much better results he obtains.
But the more he wants to win the
harder lie swings, when conditions >
should he exactly reversed.
Later on, after he has got away
two or three good drives and his con?
fidence is better established, he can
fnsert more power and possibly get
aviy with it. But he will rarely get
a ay with it from the crest of the
firs ; tee.
There is a slogan of the game known j
as "Do!:'t press." Tihs slogan cer?
tainly belongs to the first three or four
holes, whether it be for an Evans or |
for a 20-handicap man. There may be j
times during a round to knock the
cover off, but they do not belong at the
start of any match. The only sane
idea is to give yourself a chance to get
going with an easy, steady swing until
your golfing system is thoroughly
warmed up, with all the kinks removed.
Then if you desire to peel the epider?
mis from the indented pellet you will
have a better chance to achieve re?
sults?although Chick Evans main?
tained that same three-quarter swing
all through the open championship.

Title to Berkeley
From a Special Correspondent
PRINCETON, N. .J? Feb. 7. -Paul
Chace, of Berkeley Irving School, won
the point trophy in the Princeton
inter-scholastic swimming meet this
afternoon by one of the most brilliant
scries of aquatic performances ever
seen in Brokaw pool. This slim water?
man, the only representative of his
school at the meet, defeated the best
prep school swimmers of the East in
the 100 and the furlong and then
swam a dead heat for first in the 50,
piling up a total of 14 points, one
more than the ?core of the Poly Prep j
tean of Brooklyn, which finished j
Chace had an easy time with tho
]00, winning easily from Genthner,
of Polv, in 60 seconds. Half an hour)
later he led Hall, of Dewitt Clinton, ?
to the finishing board in the excellent
time of 2:29 1-5. Genthner, of Poly, |
came from behind in the final length
of the 50 in a whirlwind finish and
broke Chace's string of victories by
making the race a dead heat, but, it
was too late to affect the final score.
Lawrenceville's relay team took this
event in handy fashion from the Poly
Prep swimmers, who just nosed out
Princeton Prep for the place. Law?

with a third and two fourths gave the
