Golfers Focus on Columbia Tourney: Gallant Fox Wins Belmont by Four Lengths.
WARDMAN TROPHY 1
i IS HISTORIC PRIZE
Hectic Struggle Expected
; in Qualification Round,
Opening Tuesday.
BY HALTER R. McCALLL'M.
GOLFING legions of Wash
ington and the surround
ing territory again will
turn their efforts toward
the splendid course of the Colum
bia Country Club this week, where
the annual joust for the Ward- 1
man Trophy—one of Washington's
historic golf trophies—will start
dav after tomorrow.
Always a. racting a banner field, both j
In number of entrants and In skill of
the competitors. the Columbia tourna- j
ment again thus year lives up to the |
best traditions of such events by pres- | 1

best field, in point of scoring possibili

the Capital. And just byway of passing. ,
the Columbia tourney is the last of the
big Spring events near the Capital, for j '
Congressional, which usually holds a 5
tourney late in June, has decided to
abandon its event this year. | 1
Where only a small group of Washing- j }
tomans competed last week in the Mid- j
atlantic championship at Richmond, a ;
large sector of Washington golfdom I,
will be casting envious eyes toward
those expansive Columbia greens this : -
week, hoping to qualify in the hectic ]
struggle that always takes place in the ;
medal round at Columbia and later i '
hoping to win one of the attractive J s
S rises the club puts up for the victors j

open Tuesday and conclude on Friday, j ]
with half the entry list scheduled to |
play on Tuesday and the other half on 1

field, and not because Columbia is an <

Popular Tourney.
The Columbia tourney is regarded by '
moat golfers as one of the two or three
high spots of the competitive golf year -
about the Capital, for many men pass
up other tournaments to concentrate
on the Columbia event. In the list of
winners of the Wardman Cup, since it l
first was played for in 1913, appeal j
two members of the Walker Cup team
and two of the most prominent golfers i
in America. Roland R. MacKenzie. who (
learned the game over Columbia's roll
ing fairways, has won the tournament i
once, and George J. Voigt, semi-final-
Ist in the recent British amateur cham
pionship. has twice won the tourney, i
The first time Voigt won the event j
was back in 1924. when he was then
playing at East Potomac Park. He won »
It also in 1927, when he had started on n
the impressive streak of victories that
has led him to his present hfch post
to golf. Here is the complete list of vie- ,
grs in the Columbia tourney since the
Wardman Cup first was placed in com

To show how hot the scoring pace
vas In the medal round of the Colum
bia tourney last year we need merely to
tecall that 77 tied for the last few
in the first flight, necessitating
a play-off. and 85 made the last flight.
Fife flights will qualify this year, and
the struggle for places in the match
play rounds will be just as keen this
wear as they were a year ago. The
course, under the able supervision of
O. P. Fitts, has been brought along
slowly and has rounded into condition
so well that today 4t is in topnotch
shape. The tournament committee in
charge of the event is composed of
George P. James, chairman; Donald
Woodward, Albert R. MacKenzie, Hugh

M. k LINKS TITLE
TAKEN BY HOWELL
Youthful Richmond Player
Scores Over Cochran in
Final, 2 and 1.
RICHMOND. Va.. June 7.—The
Middle Atlantic amateur golf j
crown tonight adorned the
brow of the youngest player
i ever to wear It. He is Billy Howell of
| Richmond, 18 years old.
In the final round of the champion
ship tournament, played on the James
River course, the youngster took the
measure of Alex Knapp of Baltimore,
2 and 1, and In doing so looked every
bit a champion.
Before reaching the final Howell ac
counted for two of Washington’s
strongest entries. He eliminated Harry
Pitt of Manor, former champion, and
John Shorey of Bannockburn. Shorey
was beaten this morning in a 19-hole !
match.
The Bannockburn player was 2 up at
the turn, after playing well nigh per
fect golf for nine holes. Then his
game cracked. He lost hLs putting
touch and some of his iron shots were
off. In the second round Knapp de
feated the defending champion. B.
Warren Corkran of Baltimore. 3 and 2.
The new champion won the Virginia
State title in 1928.
Roger Peacock of Indian Bpring
was the only Washington prize winner,
annexing the first flight consolation.
I STRAIGHT OFF THE TEE I
BY W. R. McCALLUM
FOR many years Mrs. Y. E.
Booker of Washington struggled j
to break 100. Then she sudden- j
ly found the magic remedy and :
she Is the proud possessor of a
score card of 83 for that trying Vir
ginia layout. Out in a fine 40, she
took 43 to play the last nine, but still
she has the distinction of having played
the course in figures lower than most
of the star golfers who have pitted
their skill against the difficult course.
Another member of the club who Is
showing Improvement is Mary White,
a sister of Dorothy White Nicolson,
the District champion.
A FEATURE of the current ringer
competition at Washington, which
began nine days ago. is the fact that
players may turn in ringer cards only on
three days of the week, although how
the committee plans to check oft each
member against the days he chooses
to play is somewhat of a mystery. ,
Last year the golf committee ruled
that ringer scores could only be turned
in on Saturdays and Sundays, but this
year players have been allowed three
days a week in which to play for ringer
scores. One member may choose
Tuesday. Thursday and Friday as his
ringer score days, while another may
choose Sunday, Wednesday and Satur
day as his choice score days.
The contest will end on Labor Day
and has been divided Into three classes,
those up to IS handicap; those fiom 15
to 19, inclusive, and those with handi
caps over 19. Washington has just
completed installation of a new handi
capping system, by which the players
are placed on their honor to turn In
their lowest score cards.
THIS business of handicapping
golfprs at long distance is not all
it. is cracked up to be. Ralph S.
Shepherd, secretary of the Inter-De
partmental Golf League, thinks so at
any rate. As golfers playing in the
tournament, with handicaps ranging up
to 16 and 18 came in to the score
board last week with cards of 82 and
83, Shepherd looked over his handicap
list and remarked: “What a razzing I’ll
get. Here are men with 16 and 18
handicap shooting scores which a 10
handicap man should shoot. Ah, here
is one more suited to an 18 handicap
man.” And he looked over a score
card which showed a total of 103, with
an 18 handicap. The Inter-Depart
mental Golf League tourney is such
an Involved affair, with prizes for this
and that in three classes, and with in
dividual and team championships, that
Shepherd is somewhat of a marvel even
to get them all tabulated correctly. In
view of this the errors that were made
in handicaps may well be forgotten.
THE group of local professionals who
have designated the course of the
Lakeside Oyitry C?ab on which to
play a week frem tomorrow in the sec
tional qualifying round for the national
open championship seem to have made
a bad guess, for the United States Golf
Association has not relented a bit and
has designated but three places for the
large list of men who will attempt to
qualify at Richmond. Bob Barnett and
Gene Larkin of Chevy Chase and R.
Cliff McKimmi* of Army, Navy and
Marine Corps Club, have designated the
Springhaven Club of Philadelphia as
the place of their attempted qualifica
tion and would seem to l*ve a better

CUBS’ WIN STREAK
STOPPED BY ROBINS
Wild Pitching and Hurler’s
Homer End Chicago’s String
of Nine Straight.
By the Associated Press.
BROOKLYN, June 7.—The Robins
stopped Chicago's march through
the National League today after
nine straight victories by win- j
ning today s wild encounter, 12 to 9. ■
Clark, fourth Brooklyn pitcher, won his
own game with a home run in
seventh inning with two on base.
Rain, which delayed the start, con
tributed to the wildness of the pitchers.
Chicago scored five runs in the first and
third innings on only two hits, one of
them Hack Wilson's eighteenth home
run of the year. The Robins came
back with three runs in the third and
1 drove Guy Bush from the box with five
more in the fourth, walks contributing
i heavily to the scoring.
| Woody English's second homer of the
i game and one by Beck put Chicago in
the lead in the sixth and set the stage
for Clark s homer.
It was Brooklyn's first victory over
the Cubs this year, and evened tne
1 series here, putting the Robins back two
full games ahead of Chicago.

Insiders See Tilden
In Davis Cup Matches
BY LAWRENCE PERRY.
NEW YORK. June 7 <CP.A>—
Betting of lawn tennis men who
know the political ins and outs of
the sport, who know as well the
indomitable war-horse Instincts of
Big Bill Tilden, is that the national
champion will be in there as one of
the representatives of the United
States on the Davis Cup team in the
European interzone matches which
begin July 19 arid run through
July 20.
If Tilden does spring to the rescue
it is a one-sided bet that the United
States will win the right to meet
France in the challenge round for
the cup at the Roland Garros |
Stadium in Paris, July 25-27, in
clusive.
Without the assistance of Big Bill
it is not certain that the united
Statea team of youngsters have it in
* them to get by the winner of the
i gone battle.

SETS TRAH«B
IN HEAVY SHOWER
Sande Brings Colt’s Winnings
to $203,730 as He Equals
Sir Barton’s Record.
BY ALLAN GOULD,
Associated Press Bports Editor.
Belmont park. n. y.. June 7.-*-
Gallant Fox, with the bruised
and bandaged Earl Sande in the
saddle, answered the challenge
to their greatness today by scoring a
smashing triumph in the Belmont
Stakes and capturing the three-year-old
championship of the American turf. (
This was the big test for William
Woodward's big bay son of Sir Galla- •
had 111 and Gallant Fox met It by run- ,
ning the legs off Harry Payne Whit
ney's famous Whichone. the favorite, in
a finish that was startingly decisive in
every respect. Made second choice to
Whichone in spite of the Woodward
combination's great record, the Fox and
Sande outsmarted and outran the star
of the Whitney stable, to win by four
good lengths in a common gallop.
Only four horse* ran in the rain that
spoiled an otherwise colorful scene.
James Butler's Questionnaire was
third, eight lengths back of the Fox,
and W. J. Salmon's Swlnfleld, fourth,
13 lengths behind the winner.
50,000 See Triumph.
A crowd of nearly 50,000 spectators'
saw Sande ride the Fox to the colt'fi
fourth successive triumph ss a three- .
year-old, completing a triple conquest
of the three big classics—Preakness.
Kentucky Derby and Belmont. In pre
vious turf history only one other thor
oughbred. Sir Barton. In 1919. has reg
istered tills great achievement.
"It was easy and all I had to do was
let the Fox run," said Sande, afterward,
smiling through the bruises and band
ages he wore as the result of an auto
accident two days ago.
In spite of the somewhat heavy going
In the rain, the Fox established a new
record for the Belmont Stakes by run
ning the mile and a half in 2 minute*
31*s seconds. This surpassed the time
of 2:32*4 set by Crusader In 1926,
when the distance was increased and e
equalled the following year by Chance
Shot. The time was short of Man O'
War s track record of 2:28!4 for tha t
mile and a half. . i
To make it all the more impressive,
the Fox’s victory added $66,000 to his
owner’s winnings and shot his total
beyond th» $200,000 mark as a threat
to the big money winners of the turf
for all time. In four races this Spring
alone. Gallant Fox has won $183,840
and the colt's exact total is $203,730,
with his small earnings as a 2-year-old
added.
Finish Is Easy.
The Woodward colt acted a* if In
sulted bv the 8-to-5 odd*, for he was
Impatient to be off, bolting from the
barrier and galloping an eighth of a
mile down the track before Bande was
able to turn him. They were off a'
moment later, and the Fox was first to ,
the rail, running at the flank of Swin
field. Questionnaire was third and
Whichone fourth, and they held these
positions in the run around the first
turn. , *
Galloping into the back stretch,
Sande and the Fox were in full com
mand. Questionnaire moved up to
second place in the long run that saw
the Fox experience no difficulty keeping
the lead. Three or four times it seemed
that Jockey A. Robertson, on Question
naire. sought to challenge the leader.
The crowd, expecting a move from
Whichone, as the Whitney horse con
tinued to run a disappointing fourth,
finally let out a roar as the favorite
responded to Jockey Sunny Workman's
urging on the back turn. As the small
field rounded into the home stretch.
Whichone moved easily Into second *
place and it looked like a real race.
The Whitney colt was then a length
and a half back of the Fox, but the for- *
; mer's challenge was short-lived. The
Fox bounded away from the favorite,
settling th; outcome in a few strides
and galloping past the grandstand In a
j magnificent finish.
