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.

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.

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.
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.
