Need Is Seen to Cut World Series Prices ; New Gol Ball Will Benefit Duffers.
SOFT PEDAL BEING PUT ON SUCH TALK, HOWEVER Annual Classics Have Become Impregnated With ‘'“Big Money'*' Idea—Some 1 of Men in Game Are Indifferent to Public Opinion. BY JOHN B. FOSTER. Nl'-W YORK. October 14.—The soft pedal is being put ou ta'.k of re ducing world series admission prices in 1925—talk which made its appearance simultaneously with the breaking of the Giant bribery scandal. After another record-breaking "gate." despite the scandal, some of the .owners ;irc beginning to say that, after all. the public "stood for" the caudal- of I')!'* and 1924, and that they will "stand for” again the high prices which make world series such juicy plums and put such heavy money temptation upon players of the high-ranking teams. I .hiring the p living oi the 10J4 world series the talk about reduced prices gained considerable headway, especially among owners of the National League, wit ch had been hit by the scandal. The American League owners were h-s positive at the moment that they favored such a reduc tion- for they were not facing the unpleasant situation that existed in the other league.

THE first national amateur championship in which [ played was that at St. Louis in 1921, which was won by Jesse Guilford of Boston. It was there that I witnessed the strangest play that ever tame to my notice in an important tournament. It was in the qualifying round. When all the scores were in it was found that Russell Smith of Portland, Orcg., a former holder of the Pacific Northwest championship, which I won this year, and Prescott S, Rush of St. Louis were tied for thirty-second place among the qualifiers. Pndcr the rules Smith and Bush went to the first hole to play off the lie. As Smith’s friend and fellow townsman-I volunteered to do caddy service for him. The first hole at the St. Louis Country Club is about 400 yards in length. Sklrtiiur ffcc fairway on the left, well off the tee, is a gully prob ably 25 feet In deoth, filled with long, tangled grass. SHU further to the left, on a hank above the gully, are a lot of trees of varying size. Both gully and trees are considerably off j the line, particularly the trees, and j no one expected that they would (ig ’ ure in the mat Mi. Bush was first to play, getting off ■ a beautiful drive straight down the fairway. But Smith, hitting the hall with terrific force, pulled it far around. It made for the clump of trees overlooking the gully at the left as if determined to gel us much off the course as possible. “It's all off now." 1 said to myself. Bui this was a mistake. The hall, by one of those strange chances which help to make golf so surpris ing and so interesting, struck one of the trees —one that couldn't have been more than six inches In diam ete—ricocheted off it Into the gully, hit a stone there, bounded high into the air and came down in the fair way. about 200 yards from the tee. Not a bad distance at all, I guess Russell must have been a hit dazed by this shot. Although he was 200 yards from the flag and play ing against a strong wind, he was going to use his mashie on the next shot. I urged a midiron on him and he took the suggestion. The result was one of the most beautiful plays you ever saw. He laid ids ball twoj feet from the cup and got down in 3, while his opponent, who was past j the pin with his second, needed two pulls to hole out. Smith qualified for tournament plaj ; Bush didn’t. Such i is golf. However. Russell lost to Bronson of Seattle in the first round. ZEV CAPTURES THIRD RACE IN SUCCESSION I, A ToN IA. Ky.. October it Zev. | black speed marvel of the Rancocas stable, who arrived in Kentucky last - Thursday, won his third race in three successive racing days here yesterday j when he ran away from Idle Hour J Farm’s good sprinter Raffling and i completed the 6-furlong journey in | Lift 1-5. the fastest time recorded at ! Latonia Ibis Fall. "Got Zev in again tomorrow?" K. R. Bradley inquired of Sam Hildreth, trainer of the Ham-ocas star, after the race. "Wish there was a spot." answered Hildreth. "I'd like to see him heat that 1:09 4-5 track record, then Pd retire him to the stud." This probably is the last year Zev will bo seen under colors, as it is j likely be will he sent into 111? studj next Spring.

CHANGE TO BETTER GAME, I | EXPERT LINESMEN AGREE i Pro * anti Amateur* Are Satisfied Distance Will Not Be Sacrificed Because of Increase in Size and Weight of Sphere. by ray McCarthy.

It is possible now to squeeze in some ■ 2.. or more yards in the flight of this! hall. and. judging from the ke.-niters f of Hie competition among the various! | golf hall manufacturers, it is likely | they would lake advantage of this , possibility. In that event no golf course could he found long enough for championship play. IliMiancc in \e%» Hall. J "The change in the standard of the ball lias been made to prevent such a possibility. It will he possible, as was proved in a competition at the national links several weeks ago, to get quite is much distance with the ' new hall as with the old and the . | shot to the greens will henceforth | play an important part in the game.) ! And, after* all. golf is more a game of, i science and skill than of mere slug- ' | ging." I In the competition mentioned in the i i preceding paragraph, Cyril Tolley | j drove the new hail to within 10 yards j of the distance he was driving tlie ! old. j Jim Barnes, one of tlie keenest thinking professionals in the game, t thinks the new hall will help all I golfers. j "The present ball is too heavy for ! ,h e average player." said Long Jim ' during a discussion of the matter , among several pros one night on the ! | veranda of ihe French Lick Springs | Hotel. "In order to drive this ball i , a long distance vine must have a lot ' j of muscular power end must know , how to get the hall into the air i quickly. You don't see many duffers getting a very high long flight with i i his ball because they don't know j bow io get the bail up. "You check up what I arn telling j you when the new ball comes out ! | and you will find the poorer golfer is j getting more distan.-e then than he . is now. Til, new- I.a 11 won't alfei i I the good player much, because he has I the strength and the liming needed ; to hit the present hall properly.” ••Won’t Hurl Hutter"—McLeod. "I agree with Jim." said wee Freddy Mcljeod. another crafty- links -19411. who has won many matches be cause lie outtbought bis opponent. “To begin with, the new ball will be a little larger in size and that cer | tainly isn't going to hurt the dufT,*r SPORTS. 1 any.

He can't get any distance in a wind with any kind of ball. To play j "ito a wind requires skill as well as strength, and more of the former . than of the latter Walter Hagen and Gene Sarazen both agree with Barnes and McLeod that the new ball will be a help rather than a handicap to the poorer golfer,. Some Os Ihe gt.od players, as well aw mauj misinformed duffers, think ' >ong-distance hitting will pass out when the new standard ball is pul into play. But judging from practical ; demonstrations, as well as from the I "Pinion of men who are in a position ■to know, the scoring will be just as i low in 1026 and years following as it is now.
