Epidemic of Low Golf Scoring Is Forecast on Links in Washington Sector
- A ——Bh A ■ I ■ A ———— A
Slippery Greens Offer Main
Trouble as Long as Fine
Weather Continues.
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
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.
Goldie Minimizes Prospect of Box

WHILE officers of the Riding and

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

Leading Thinkers, Writers, Poets

BERLIN, November 21 MP).—A re
turn of polo to the sports program
for the 1936 Olympics and a plan to
bring to Berlin during the games the
leading thinkers, writers and poets
of the world have been announced
by Dr. Theodor Lewald, president of
the German Organization Committee.
The return of polo to the program,
he said, came as a result of Argen
tin·.'· plea. It last was included in
1924, the United States losing to Ar
gentina in the final.
Dr. Lewald said 41 nations already
had signified their intention of com
peting in the main events during the
Summer of 1936 and they were mak
ing -plans to accommodate 3,000 ath
letes, more than twice the number
that competed at Los Angeles in 1932.
Twenty-one nations have entered for
the Winter games.

Considering Tournament Change
So as to Give Additional Play
ers a Chance. y
By the Associated Press.
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
Another proposal would exempt the
eight quarter-finalists from the ne
cessity of qualifying for the next
year's tournament.
Fifty-five officers and delegates from
all sections of the country are at
tending the convention which closes
tomorrow night. Election of officers
for 1935 was expected to be held to
MINNEAPOLIS, November 21 (tP).—
An Increase in the prices of Univer

reserved seats, compared to a flat rate
of 65 cents last season.

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. P. I., the Cadets' rival, in the
thirty-second renewal of a series that
started 40 years age.
The Cadets believe further that
their star backs will cash in on their
new plays. Coach Bill Raftery has
been rehearsing behind closed gates.
Meredith Urick has smashed opposing
lines for three tallies, and his sopho
more running mate, Wayt Clark, has
converted two of his dazzling runt
into six-pointers.
In all except two games the Cadets
have emerged with more first downs
than their opponents. Now Raftery
is concentrating on touchdown plays.

New York Commission Asks
Suggestions Following
Many Disputes.
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
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.

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
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.

You'll like the looks of the

But even better—you'll like
the Quality of the heart of the

There's honest Quality in every

No wonder it has been the
