Pome work Is nil ready for the execu tlvo committee of tho United States Golf Association If It wants to enforce Its amateur rule. There arc at lean two golfers playing In tournaments held by V. H. Q, A. clubs who hardly can bo called nmateurs because of their profes sional experiences In other lines of nth letlc endeavor. They are ' rthur Shafcr, who has been u fiequent competitor In tournaments on tbo Pacific coast during 1915, nnd John Uredcmus of tho New York Oolf Club. 8hafer Is tho young athlete who played In tho Giants' Infield for several years and left tho team after tho 1913 reason aylng that he had other sulllctcnt and more attractive menns of support In fact all during the time that he was with the Olants It n understood genernlly that he possessed Independent means and did not need to play baseball to malti; tils living. Ncvorthtleos ho received a good salary for his services, and without a doubt Is a professional athlete. Hlnce his retirement from baseball he has bien playlrt? golf, ami nlthouirh the fnlted Stntis Oolf As-oclnxlon has ts announ ed his relnta.tccncnt as anu'm.iteur the California cluba i-ccm to have trvated him us such. In tho handicap list of tho Southern California Oolf Asjoclatlon Issued recently he Is rated nt six and less than.two wecko ago wo.i two cups In a club "tourney. Theru seems to bo little If any doubt that the John Bredemus who took part In the nmatcur'tourr.ntnent at I'lii'hurst last week Is tho same John Bredemus that uon tho all round championship of the Amateur AthVtle Union In 190S and 1912, reprrwentlng l'rlnceton Unlv rslty on the llrst occasion and plain l'rlrceton on tho second. If that wt re all that could be charged ngalnat this John Bredemus there would be no r ason why ho should not be welcomed :in un amateur golfer, but since scoring theM notable victories the former l'rlnceton golfer has crossed the line into pro fessionalism. Bredemus accented a position as coach at Stamford, Conn., and later nt Horace Mann School. Ho deviated ccn fur ther from tho rnndut that tho recent amateur conference out II mil aa correct when he competed In the gajnes'of tho Caledonian Club last Labor luy. The Scots games are entirely mado up of professional events and Bredemus vio lated more than ono of the canons laid down at tho conference. Besides com peting for money he competed under an n-oumed n' me o'ioos ng for the n aslon the non de track of "Al Copland." At the Ca.edom.in meet llreflemus tied for first ptace In the polo vault and divided tho llrst and second money, umountlng to $11. Aa Bredemus no longer holds a registration card In tho Amateur Ath letic Union, that body did not havo to tako any steps to show that he had placed luuisolf outsldo the palo of amateurism. I XeS now $1595 I Bigger and Better' A New Achievement in The Proven Eight THE MODEL 860 Cole Eight, at $1595, turns another page in multiple-cylinder history. 1 1 is a tremendous money value. It gives you twenty five per cent more power than any other year-proven high-grade Eight with four hundred pounds less weight. That means lighter cost of upkeep and in creased tire mileage. The more you know about a motor car, the more this new Cole achievement' will appeal to you. The more you study its light, sturdy structure, its improved engine and its perfected lines, the more you want to own it. And when you ride in it and see it perform as no other car can perform, you'll settle the matter of its superiority for good and all. You'll go up the steepest hills without a thought of them. The rough roads won't impress you. Driving yourself, you will know that no other car picks up like it, that it will stick to the road as a train fol lows the tracks. You will drive without gear shifting, silently, without vibration. You'll accelerate from ten fo fifty miles an hour in les than twenty seconds. And you'll get this maximum perform ance permanently. See this superb car at Grand Central Palace and then let us prove our claims by a demonstration. All prices f. o. b. Indianapolis. Colt-Stratton Company Broadway at 57th Street Space A-9, Grand Central Palace jtaSIard THE Standard "Eight" has not only attracted a great deal of favorable comment from users, but after X year's service has proved to be in every respect a thoroughly practical and efficient "Eight." We have had absolutely no structural difficulties whatsoever and the Standard Steel Car Com pany is now entering its second year with many enthusiastic owners in the larger cities. We think that their success the first year was possibly quite largely clue, not only to the excellent construction of the "Eight," but also to the national reputation and unquestioned standing of the manufacturing company, which in itself is a guarantee of the integrity of their products. The Standard Steel Car Company, as you may know, is one of the largest industrial concerns in the world, and possesses facilities for the production of automobiles enjoyed by no other company in existence. We realize that this is a very remarkable statement to make, but when you stop to think that the Standard Steel Car Company is in a position to make practically all their own parts and make them from Standard Steel produced by their own furnaces, these furnaces having a capacity of 1000 tons a day, you will agree with us that we are right. Their rolling mill alone represents an investment of many million dollars, and when you reflect that more than Bo'o of the material entering into the modern automobile is steel, or its kindred products, we feel sure that you will appre ciate that this equipment is of the greatest importance to owners and to our dealers as well as to ourselves. When the Standard Steel Car Company first undertook the manufacture of automobiles nearly four years ago, they went about the work in a most thorough manner. They were in no hurry, and it was nearly three years before they offered their first car to the motor trade or public. Their engineers, chemists and machinists were all under instructions to take their time, and to make their experiments at the company's expense and not at the buyer's. The result was that this first c ar was right Their unique facilities enable them to use their own special alloys for the different parts manufactured, these al loys being tested by the engineering and chemical experts of the Company, and' proved to be the best for the particular uses for which they are designed. The result is that the Standard Eight has been a trouble less car, and we cannot make this too strong. We have never had a motor freeze in test or in service. In fact, motor troubles have been absolutely unknown to us during the en tire year. Our staggered cylinders and our force feed oiling system through hollowed crank shaft, together with the care ful inspection and thorough tests to which all our motors are subjected, are some of the features of construction that have been responsible for this gratifying result. Other features of our car include the light weight wedge shape frame, which prevents side swaying, gives greater strength pound for pound and makes for easier riding, and the improved Hotchkiss (anti-skid) Drive of the double uni versal type. In fact, the more carefully you study our car the more likely you are to believe that our claims for excellence arc justified. We are acquainted with the specifications of every "Eight" on the market, and we feel that any unbiased and open-minded judge of automobiles will agree with us, that our car possesses niore features of proved mechanical excellence than any of the others. If this is not so, we have no right to your support if it is, we believe you will be glad to know it. In presenting the 1016 Standard Eight we can state that it has been born of thorough and extensive experience, under all-varying conditions and with the happy conclusion that no changes have been indicated as necessary in the mechanical features, and only such changes in body construction as are required to meet the latest demands. i Tho purpose of this advertisement is to say that this looks to us like a good time for you to get in touch with what we are doing and for us to make your acquaintance. You are cordially invited to inspect our now open and closed models. THE DUFFY MOTORS CORPORATION Factory DiHtributors in New York. New Jersey and Connecticut. 1895 Broadway, S. W.
