International Federation in Favor of Retaining Women s Events in Olympics

Compensation Proposal for
“Broken Time,” Starting
Blocks Disapproved.
> -
By the Associated Press.
BERLIN, May 21.—Strong pressure
in favor of the continuance of
women's Olympic track and fledl
events in 1932 games at Los An
geles was brought to bear today by the
International Amateur Athletic Federa
tion in session here.
Unless the women are allowed to com
pete, the world’s male athletes as rep
resented in the I. A. A. F. will adopt a
policy of non-co-operation in regard to
, the Olympics, it was indicated.
A resolution proposed by Gustavus T.
Kirby of New York was adopted by the
federation at its closing session today
which provides that the I. A. A. F. shall
remain in Berlin in recess ready to be
called together should the Olympic
Congress, convening next week, decide
to eliminate the women’s track and
field events.
Strongly Against Compensation.
The International Amateur Athletic
Federation has taken a firm stand
against compensating athletes for lost
wages during Olympic games.
A Swiss-Dutch proposal that “broken
time” be granted working athletes failed
overwhelmingly of adoption, 18 to 4,
at the meeting yesterday.
Supporting the proposal, along with
Switserland and Holland, were only
Finland and Sweden.
To counteract the plea for broken
time, Great Britain’s delegates were
empowered to . propose that the rules
be made even more strict along that
line than they are now. Britain was
prepared to suggest that “no competi
tor who received any payment or com
pensation for lost salary, directly, or
indirectly or in any guise whatsoever,
shall be permitted to participate in fu
ture Olympics.”
When the Swiss-Dutch proposal was
defeated, however, the British delegates
agreed to withdraw their proposal and
let well enough alone.
Will Study Starting Blocks.
By a majority just about as over
whelming America’s plea for recogni
tion of the use of starting blocks in
sprint races was turned down, but
Joseph B. McCabe of Boston, member
of the American delegation, succeeded
In having the matter referred for fur
ther study. .
Also referred for additional investi
gation was a German proposal that
record performances shall not be recog
nised if they have been made with a
favoring wind of more than two meters
per second. The delegates voted against
the addition to the Olympic program of
a 6,000-meter relay race and a lfl-kilo
weight throw.

, FINALS ARE LIKELY
Br the Associated Frees.
AUTEUIL, France, May 21.—The
French hard-court tennis champion
ships, now in progress here, may be
climaxed by international battles in
both the men’s and women’s singles.
In the men’s singles Henri Cochet of
France and Big Bill Tildeh have been
seeded at the top of the upper and low
er halves of the draw, respectively, and,
If play follows form, will meet in the.
finals. Cochet’s path to the finals ap
parently will be an easier one than Til
den’s, for the Frenchman’s most dan
gerous rival apparently is the Italian
ace. Baron H. L. de Morpurgo. •
Tilden, on the other hand, must dis
pose of the “Bounding Basque,” Jean
Borotra, before he reaches the final
round. In the event of a meeting be
-4 tween Tilden and Borotra, the Amer
ican will be favored, or Borotra’s vic
tories over Tilden in the past have been
scored on the boards, indoors. The tail
Philadelphian has held the upper hand
outdoors consistently.
Although predictions have been made
that the women’s finals will find Mrs.
Helen Wills Moody and. Senorita Elia
de Alvarez of Spain on opposite sides
of the net, there is a chance that Helen
Jacobs of Berkeley, Calif., may prove
too formidable a hurdle for the Spanish
girl to clear.
Miss Jacobs was the only American
to get into action yesterday. In the
women’s doubles she and her Belgian
partner, Irene Sicart, defeated Veronlque
and Josephine Gallay of France, 6—3,
3—6, 6—o. Mrs. Moody and her part
ner, Elizabeth Ryan, reached the third
round in doubles when their second
round opponents, two comparatively
unknown French girls, defaulted.
Today, in mixed doubles, Tilden and
Cecilie Aussem of Germany meet Tamio
’ Abe of Japan and Mile. Claude Anet.
Miss Jacobs and Wilbur F. Coen of
Kansas City were matched against
Mme. Wolfson and Edmond Blanc of
France. Both mgtebes are in the sec
ond round.
AMERICAN U. RACKETERS
EVEN SCORE WITH C. U.
American University has evened ten
nis scores with Catholic University for
the season. * . . .
After losing the first two matches the
Eagle netmen rallied to take the next
four singles encounters and two of the
three doubles yesterday to win over the
Cardinals. 6 to 3, on the Congressional
Country Club courts.
C. U. was the winner of an earlier
season match at Brookland, 6 to 2.

STRAIGHT OFF THE TEE
YOU may play ’em right, but they
don’t always go right. Some
times it is your fault if they
don’t go right, and sometimes
not, as Sam Converse learned at Ban
nockburn, when he played what ap
peared a perfect shot to put a golf
game on ice at the seventeenth. But
just at, the spot where his ball disap
peared the greens committee nad left
a drain pipe and Sam’s ball, instead of
rolling down the slope onto the putting
green, dropped Into the drain pipe and
ran out under the green into the guard
ing ditch. Instead of winning the hole
with a par 3, Sam’s side lost the hole
to a buzzard 4, and lost a side bet.
Converse was playing with Jesse K.
McKeever, Cass Leigh and Martin Mc-
Inemey, and they had made a small
extra bet on the seventeenth. Now that
seventeenth is a tricky hole. The long
hitters play straight for the pin#taking
the chance of a hook which will place
their ball in the ditch at the left, while
the shorter hitters play up the hill and
hope the ball will roll down onto the
green.
Converse played the latter type of
shot. He struck his ball onto the spot
where all well regulated golf balls
should roll down onto the green, but
when he came to the spot where he
saw the ball stop it was not there. A
search revealed the fact tHht a drain
pipe comes to the surface of the fair
way just at that point, and further
search located his ball in the ditch at
the left of the green, 25 yards from
where he saw it stop. He figured that
it ran through the drain pipe under
the green into the ditch. Anyhow it
cost him the hole and the side bet and
now he is looking for Dr. Thomas J.
W. Brown, chairman of the greens
committee, with a well oiled vocabulary.
Usually the upper end of that pipe is
covered with a wire mesh screen, but
for some reason it was not there when
Converse’s ball rolled in.
Pairings for the Henry-Williams Cup
at the Bannockburn Club are to be
made Saturday afternoon. .The tourney
is to start on Sunday and will continue
through the latter part of May and well
into June.
With her team chosen for the team
match with Baltimore on May 27,
Mrs. J. Marvin Haynes, chairman of
the inter-city team contest committee
of the Women’s District Golf Associa
tion has received a challenge from the
women of the Country Club of Virginia
to play a team match with the golfers
of the Virginia State capital. The
match will be arranged for next month.
The women’s District championship,
to be played at the Washington Golf
and Country Club the week of June 8
may find two notable absentees—both
of them reigning champions. Mrs.
John N. Hodges, women’s champion of
the Middle Atlantic Golf Association
will be at West Point with her husband

event, attending a class reunion. Mrs.

In MitcheU’s Play
BT SOL METZGER.
The main point to keep in mind
about Mitchell’s play of the run-up
golf shot are that he uses a mashle,
follows through low and keeps the
clubbead shut throughout the swing.
Abe plays this shot with the left
arm doing all the work and with
precious little wrist action to aid
him. His big Idea is to throw the
ball for the apot ahead that he has
selected for it to strike at the end
of the toss.
No one can reduce his score more
rapidly than by practicing the short

than any others. Skill in their ex

WILSON IN FRONT
IN BIG TEN GOLF
Ohio State Player With 151
Starts Final 36 Holes With
Stroke Ahead.
By the Associated Press.
Evanston, hi.. May 21.—a
closely bunched field, paced by
Ted Wilson, an Ohio State
senior, who has been rapping
at toe door of golf fame for several
years, whipped out woods nd irons to
day for the final big push for the
Big Ten golf championship over the
Westmoreland Country Club course.
With toe day’s stretch extending over
36 holes on a course laden everywhere
with yawning traps, trees and treach
erous greens, the championship fignt
looked to be anybody’s battle among
at least 13 shotmakers from seven uni
versities whose scores for the first
36-hole grind were spread between Wil
son's 151 and a pair of 158 s carded
by Alpert of Illinois and Talbot of
Indiana.
Many things can happen over 36
holes to the best of professional golfers,
whereas the field seeking the Big Ten
crown consisted for the most part of
mashle wielders from 18 years upward
to 25.
The team championship, however,
appeared safely headed toward the Uni
versity of lUnois. The mini team, con
sisting of Martin, Lyons, Alpert and
Crowe, tallied a 623 total for 36 holes
yesterday and gained a 12-stroke lead
over their nearest rival, Michigan.
Crowe led his mates with cards of
76—78 —154, which also placed him
in a five-way deadlock for third place
in the individual championship chase.
One stroke behind Wilson as today’s
drive opened was Jarvis Hicks, Mich
igan sophomore and brother of Helen
Hicks of international golfing fame.
Hicks, a stocky youth, bearing much
resemblance to his famous sister, led
the field at the end of the first 18-hole
round yesterday with a 75, but his
putter refused to function in the aft
ernoon and he took 77 and finished
with a 152 total.
Wilson, who placed fourth In the
1929 national Intercollegiate golf cham
pionship, also was troubled by poor
putting on the soaked Westmoreland
greens which boosted his score. Like
Hicks, however, he often landed on the
carpet in two well placed shots only to
take fives by miscalculating toe un
dulating greens.
No one scored 153 for the first 36
hole fight, but five came in toe 154'a
to tie for third. In addition to Crowe,
they were Lenfesty, Michigan, 76—78;
Walker, Minnesota, 76 —78; Keller,
Ohio State, 77—77, and Catterton, In
diana, 80—74.
Catterton’s 74 was thq. best round
of the day on the par 71 course, and
it lifted him back into the running
after his almost disastrous 80 in the
morning.
Others, who still were regarded as
potential contenders for toe title,
vacated through the graduation of
Lester Bolstad of Minnesota, were
Martin, Illinois, 155; Lyon. Illinois, 156;
Fowler, Minnesota, 157; Stewart, Wis
consin, 157; Alpert, Illinois, 158, and
Talbot, Indiana. 158. The others
ranged from 160 and upward, and
needed two games of Bobby Jones golf
to win.
In team standing,- next to Illinois
and Michigan, toe quartets ranked as
follows: Minnesota, 638; Wisconsin,
645: Indiana, 647: Northwestern, 650;
Ohio State, 654; Purdue, 654; Chicago,
669, and lowa, 713.

SIMPSON CUTS OUT
STARTING DEVICES
,} )
Determined to Set a World
Mark in Big Ten Meet
Without Them.
By the Associated Press.
CHICAGO, May 21.—George Simp
son, the -Ohio flyer, threw away his
wooden starting blocks today determined
to set a new world record for the 100-
yard dash in the Western Conferenece
track and field championships at North
western University Friday and Saturday.
Simpson's action followed news that
the International Amateur Federation,
in its meeting at Berlin, had refused to
approve his record of :09.4, made with
the use of blocks in the national col
legiate meet last year, and at the same
time had recognized the :09.5 of Eddie
Tolan, Michigan’s bespectacled Negro
flash, accomplished in the Western Con
ference meet a year ago.
Since Tolan became eligible for inter
collegiate competition last year a great
rivalry between the Wolverine and
Simpson has existed. The edge in vic
tories is with Simpson by a wide margin,
but in Tolan’s only victory over the Ohio
State sprinter he obtained the coveted
world mark. By the ruling yesterday
Tolan has become the only sprinter In
many years to hold the century record
all by himself.
Both started slowly this season and
each was defeated in indoor meets. Pre
vious records mean nothing when the
stocky short-legged Tolan, and the wiry
rangy Simpson get together. Coach
Steve Farrell of Michigan has a faculty
of having his sprinters “right” when he
wants them that way, and Tolan will be
primed Friday and Saturday.
Their methods are similar, both are
good of the mark, but there are faster
starters than either. Both pick up speed
quickly and each has a terrific finishing
“kick.”
The coming meeting of the great pair
was not enough before the ruling of the
International Federation. Now each
has added incentive—Tolan to retain
his laurels, and Simpson to win them
away.

Jones * Score Is Hurt
By a Delay on Course
BY GEORGE TREVOR.
NEW YORK. May 21 (C.P.A.).—
Back at familiar Sunningdale, a
course he would like to “wrap up
and take home,” Bobby Jones came
from behind to win the golf illus
trated gold vase, with the record
breaking aggregate of 143. Bob would
have lopped at least three strokes off
that total but for a slovenly 40 on
toe incoming nine of the first round.
The rapid-gaited Atlantan is a
poor waiter. Like George Duncan.
Jones bums up inwardly when forced
to wait between shots. Traffic con
gestion on the homeward nine dur
ing the opening round at Sunning
dale so Irked Jones that he seemed
to lose interest and lapsed into care
less ways.
Concentration is the essence of
championship golf. When yonr
mind wanders aflfcld the ball is apt
to follow suit. Always impetuous,
champing on the bit, Bobby cannot
adjust himself to delays. He fumed
and fretted on the last three tees at
Sunningdale, while Inept marshals
struggled lmpotently to clear the
fairways. A Grover Whalen would

LEADING SPRINTERS
IN COLLEGIATE MEET
NEW YORK, May 21 (C.P.A.).—Some
of the fastest sprinting of the outdoor
season will be in order at the I. C. A.
A. A. A. championships to be held at
Cambridge on May 30 and 31.-
Eddie Tolan, world record holder at
100 yards and national 100 and 220 yard
dash title holder from the University of
Michigan; Frank Wykoff. Southern
California sophomore of pre-Olympic
fame; James Daley of Holy Cross, in
tercollegiate 70-yard champion; Milton
Maurer, crack speedster and team mate
of Wykoff; John O. Harwood of Syra
cuse, George Stevens of Dartmouth.
Abner Kurtin of Columbia and Hector
Dyer of Stanford, not to mention half a
dozen others, will be on hand to make
their bids for collegiate laurels and ac
quire. if possible, the coveted inter
collegiate crown.
Tolan, one of the greatest Negro
spr nters ever to don a track shoe,
has run the "century” in faster time
than Simpson—that is, without the
mechanical aid of a starting device.
The "Wolverine Express” sped over the
100-yard course in 9 5-10 seconds a
year ago, which time is a shade faster
than the accepted marks of the present
day. Simpson’s 9 2-5 was made with
starting blocks and consequently should
not be given considertion.
Tolan’s marks has been accepted of
ficially, but there is no certainty that
the flying Negro’s stanc.ard will remain
for long. Frank Wykoff. running in
California a few days ago, glided -over
the cinders in 9 2-5 seconds. No me
chanical device aided him in his ef
forts.
The historic cinder path of Soldier: ’
Field should be properly scorched by
the speeding feet of these two and a
faster 100-yard dash turned than at
any previous intercollegiate.
