Epidemic of Low Golf Scoring Is Forecast on Links in Washington Sector
- A ——Bh A ■ I ■ A ———— A ■NEES, FAST COURSES INVITING Slippery Greens Offer Main Trouble as Long as Fine Weather Continues. BY WALTER R. McCALLUM. WITH all the courses around Washington in first-class condition for scoring, and the short tees in use at most of them, don't be surprised to see an orgy of low cards turned in pro vided the good weather holds. Fairways are fast, putting greens are in fine shape and at most courses the greenskeepers have placed the tee narkers on the front edges of the tees, making the courses virtually of the length used in women's tournaments. All of which makes for low scoring which will continue until cold weather strikes again, or considerable rain slows up the fairways. As those fairways now are the ball Rets just about as much run these days as it did back in the Summer. For the grass is thin, the ground it self is hard and all in all you won't find a time when the courses will be in better condition for low scoring than they are these days, barring that perfect condition for low scoring— fast fairways and copiously watered putting greens—which sometimes ob tains in midsummer just after the frreens have been well watered over night. Greens Are Slippery. THE main rub in the scoring these days comes around those slip pery greens, in the spot where good scoring is done. They are slip pery for they are not being watered these days, but the man who can chip and putt can take par for a fast ride just the same. In the first place his tee shots put him far down the fair ways nowadays in spots which he wouldn't be apt to reach in the Sum mertime, for he is playing from the front tees, which means a difference of probably 20 yards and the differ ence between a long iron shot and a pitch shot. In the second place the greens haven't frozen and thawed out. and so are not full of heel-prints. They are fast enough so that the ball doesn't have to be hit too hard and they are true enough for good putting. Don't be surprised to see some phenomenal score like that 61 Ai Houghton made at Washington last Spring turned in one day soon over these fast courses of mid-Fall. The conditions are just about perfect for bursting par wide open, and they at) 11 pay off on the 5-foot putt. The rough means practically noth ing, for it is short and well beaten down and in any event at several courses the ball may be teed any where except In a hazard, a sensible rule at a time when it is hard to dis tinguish where the fairway stops and the rough begins. All courses should adopt this method of playing Winter rules to save delays and arguments. So It looks as if golf is getting easier when it really is just the same tough old game. A combination of front tees, hard fairways and true putting greens should make any man feel that the game ia worth playing once again. You «ont fin» «coring conditions as good as they new are unfll next Spring. HUNT CJ.UB RED INK. NO AHEARN WORRY Goldie Minimizes Prospect of Box ing Arena Being Shut by Foreclosure. WHILE officers of the Riding and Hunt Club met today to dis ' cuss the red ink on the or ganization's ledger and to decide whether foreclosure proceedings will be allowed or whether a group of members will take up th· indebtness, Boxing Promoter Goldie Ahearn remained unworried over the possible effect of the club's financial straits on the fight game. Ahearn. while not professing to know anything of the situation at the Hunt Club, was Inclined to minimize the danger of the Ρ street arena closing its doors. Even should fore closure proceedings be allowed, Ahearn was confident boxing could be con tinued. The club gets 10 per cent of the gross ring gates. "If the arena should change hands, and boxing be ruled out," commented the haberdasher-promoter, "I don't know whether I would continue to promote fights or not. It all depends on whether I lined up a good location, and I haven't another spot in mind. "If worse comes to worse, I can keep on doing what I always have done," he concluded. And to a "What"· that?" the answer was, "Sell ihirts." . _ - 9 REVIVE OLYMPIC POLO Leading Thinkers, Writers, Poets Will Be Invited, Too.

CHICAGO, November 21.—A change in tournament rules which would give more players an opportunity to start in the match play rounds, was under consideration today at the an nual meeting of the Professional ι Golfers' Association. The British plan, adopted this year by the amateurs and women, raising the number of qualifiers from 32 to 64, found favor at yesterday's opening session. If adopted, the system prob ably will make necessary another change, limiting the first two rounds of match play to 18 holes, instead of 36. Otherwise an extra day would be necessary, which is not considered de sirable. Another proposal would exempt the eight quarter-finalists from the ne cessity of qualifying for the next year's tournament.

Special Dispatch to The Star. ANNAPOLIS. Md„ November 21. —Once or twice this week and again during the early part of next week Tom Ham ilton will send his Navy elevens against the Army team which Frank Poster has drilled in the offensive tactics of the West Pointers. This Army-Navy team is a fairly powerful and adept organization and Foster, who for years has scouted the Army regularly, knows almost as much about its plays as the Cadet coaches themselves. The players have entered into the spirit of the thing and will put a lot in their playing against the varsity. Hamilton believes that nothing can take the place of scrimmage—real scrimmage, under match condition*. | He thinks that nothing else can de velop fine points of play which really win games. Play Game in Advance. SO THIS week and next at Annapo lis, those who are admitted to Thompson Stadium will see some thing of the service contest in ad vance. The Navy team, using its running and passing attack, with spe cial phases arranged for the Army alone, end the "Army" team, playing the kind of foot ball used by the lads up the Hudson. The practices are. however, guarded with greater care than ever. All take place in the stadium. At every en trance there is stationed not only the usual watchmen, but a Marine guard, and only the authoried get so much as a glimpse. Yesterday Hamilton took nearly an hour at the beginning of the practice session to outline to the varsity and substitutes the new plays which will be worked out for use against the Army. Later he ran through the plays against the sandbags and fol lowed with a further test against a "B" squad team. V. M. I. PREPARES TRICKS Seeks Means to Upset Virginia Tech on Turkey Day.

The new grip makes htm hit through the ball as he used to do. and instead of playing a wide, sweeping hook, his ball goes straight out with only a suspicion of hook on it. "I will be going off to the right on my iron shots until I get used to it." Roland said, "but when I get it grooved I think it is going to help me a lot."

By the Aisociated Pru·. NEW YORK, November 21,-rThe New York State Athletic Commission, having failed to agree on a system of judging fights which would eliminate so many questionable decisions, has Invited suggestions. Brig. Gen. John J. Phelan, although desiring to fight a way out of the muddle, favors the present combined system of point scoring and round awards. Bill Brown, his militant as sociate and former referee, would scrap the complicated code and give the referee sole power over the pro ceedings in the ring. The suggestions will be considered Friday. Under the rules, a boxer may lose a round for any of a dozen minor rule infractions. The judges are re quired to count two pointa each for ring generalship, aggressiveness and defense, and four for effective punch ing, a total of 10 in each pound. "They're seeing everything but the fight," argued Brown. Brown was not so sure that some of the officials may not be doing busi ness with the gamblers, but Phelan refused to believe that anything of that kind might have been going on. "I thought they did on the Jackson decision—some one got a favor there," replied Brown in referring to a flght in the Garden last Friday night in which Sammy Puller, Boston, floored young Peter Jackson of California, three times and still lost the decision. FINE PAIR OF GENERALS Seaton and Arnold, Quarterbacks, Shine for State Champs. LEXINGTON, Va., November 21 — Seldom can a foot ball team boast two quarterbacks, but that's one of the things that has helped the Gen erate of Washington and Lee In their march to a second State champion ship. Bill Seaton. 148-pounder, has had the call in most games, but on oc casions Coach Tex Tilson has started Joe Arnold, who totes 165 pounds. In practically every game of the season these two have alternated at the job. Sometimes, too, Tilson has put Arnold in at half, and also kept Sea ton in at quarter—getting thereby a valuable combination. And each has gained his share of ground.
