BY RUSSELL NEWLAND, Associated Press Sports Writer. AN FRANCISCO. January 26.— Three national golf champions ; passed out of the picture today ! in a series of upsets never be fore equaled in the five-year history of the San Francisco match play open tournament. America's greatest amateur links man. Lawson Little, British and na tional title holder, succumbed, 5 and 4, to the superior and uncanny stroking of Byron Nelson, a 22-year-old Texan never before a threat in the major tournament season. Little went down fighting against a first-round com petitor who matched him in every way, from booming drives to deadly work on the greens. Paul Runyan, White Plains, N. Y.. who rules the Professional Golfers’ Association ranks, joined those on the sidelines through a 2-and-l defeat from Harry Cooper of Chicago, a stern opponent in any fairway competition. Clark Ousts Dutra. MORE reversals came in the sec ond round. Olin Dutra. wear er of the national open crown, fell before the fairway artistry of Clarence Clark. Blomfield, N. J., not of high ranking in the matter of ma jor tournament victories. The score was 2 and 1. Lady Luck smiled on Clark. His approach to the seventeenth green hit a woman spectator. Instead of rocket ing out of bounds, the ball caromed to the green. Clark tanked the putt to win the match. The first opening round upset saw A1 Zimmerman, Portland, Oreg., de lcai diiimi) viv.i, Island, tournament medalist, with a 142 for 36 holes, on the twentieth green. Zimmerman's tenure was short lived. He was defeated by Ky Laffoon, Chi cago, 3 and 2, in the second round. Laffoon had beaten Sam Parks, jr., Pittsburgh, 1 up. in the first match. Picard Takes Two. HENRY PICARD of Hershey, Pa., defeated Jim Demaret, Galves ton. 2 and 1. in the first round and disposed of Dick Metz, Chicago, by the same score in the second 18. Nelson, after his spectacular win over the amateur champion. Little, went on to beat Victor Ghezzi, Deal, N. J., 4 and 3, in the second round. Harold McSpaden of Kansas City, Kans., entered tomorrow's quarter finals with a 2-up win over Jim Fo garty. Kirkwood. Mo., in the morning, and a 4-and-3 defeat of Ben Loving. Petersburg. Va„ in the second session ! Clark trimmed Dutra after beating ! Floyd Farley, Oklahoma City. 1 up. and Cooper followed up his unexpected win over Runyan with an equally sur prising upset of Gene Sarazen. Brook field. Conn., star, still considered the outstanding "money player" of the game. Thomson. Revolta Advance. THE quarter-finals delegation in cluded Jimmy Thomson, Long Beach, Calif., and Johnny Re volta, Milwaukee. Thomson won from Johnny Perelli, Tahoe, Calif., 1 up. in the first round and walloped Bill Jelliffe. Los Angeles, 6 and 5, in the next, Revolta elimi nated the amateur star, Johnny Daw son of Chicago, 2 and 1, in the second round after taking the measure of Mark Fry, Oakland, 6 and 5. Dawson helped in his own defeat by knocking Revolta's ball into the cup on the sevententh hole. The latter's ball was 4 feet away from the pin at the time. Nelson Drives Far. IN THE list of upendings none im pressed the spectators so much as that which saw Little bow out, beaten by straight par golf and a smaller rival who banged out drives that left the crowd gasping. On his home course coholder of the local record of 67 and considered vir tually unbeatable. Little's longest smashes seldom outdistanced^those of the youth from the little town on the Texas-Arkansas border. Nelson is the youngest player in the tournament, a year younger than the university boy he beat today. He turned professional three years ago. married less than six months ago, and is making the present tour his honey moon. Little's putter failed him. He three putted three greens. Nelson held a 3-up advantage at the end of the ninth. For the 14 holes played the Texan was 2 under par. Little used a 39. 3 over par. for the first nine, and was even the rest of the way. Strong With Putter. NELSON clung to his lead by one putting five greens. The elev enth was a heart-breaker for the amateur champ. Nelson sank an 8-foot putt for an eagle 3 and Little missed a 6-footer for the half. In continuing his march toward the major slice of the $4,000 purse. Nelson built up a 3-up lead over Ghezzi at the ninth hole of the second-round tut. Cooper’s victory over the stocky Sarazen was helped through a freak shot on the sixth hole. On the green, Sarazen’s ball was beyond the hole. Cooper putte'd boldly. His ball hit Sarazen’s and bounced back into the cup for a birdie 3 that put him 1 up, a lead he retained throughout the rest of the match. Tomorrow's quarter-finals pairings: Laffoor. vs. Picard. Nelson vs. Mc Spaden. Clark vs. Thomson, Cooper vs. Revolts. TILDEN BEATS LOTT. CHICAGO.

Gibeau amassed six field goals and five foul tosses for a total of 17 points. Apparently concentrating their de fense on Capt. Ed Hargaden, the Tar tans found Gibeau swishing the net from all angles of the floor to send the Hcyas into a 22-12 half-time lead. Gibeau scored 13 points in the first half and played a fine floor game to boot. Hargaden, leading conference scorer, was held to four points by the Plaid, but directed the Hilltoppers in flaw less fashion throughout the fray. GOING into the last 10 minutes of play with a 31-15 lead, George town was unable to check Car negie Tach and found its advantage whittled to 34-26 with less than three minutes remaining. Maurice Patt and Simon Felser contributed to the Car negie cause with a brace of field goals to bring the count to 34-30 as the game ended. Felser, Tartan forward, kept the Plaid in the thick of the fight by tal lying four field goals and a free toss. Chubby Pr.rcells, Hoya center, sur prised the fans by holding Charlie Fitzwilson and Hugh James scoreless, while sinking three field goals. Fitz wilson, the regular tap-off man. stands 6 feet 5 inches, while James is 2 inches taller. Height Proves Costly.

Germans Will Offer Baer $300,000 to Meet Schmeling if Teuton Is Victor Over Hamas By the Associeted Press. NEW YORK. January 26.—Max Baer can collect up to $300, 000 to defend his heavyweight title in Germany if the Black Uhlan, Max Schmeling. succeeds in turning the tables on Steve Hamas in their return match at Hamburg, March 10. Fred Kirsch, German sports promo ter. said here today the Hitler gov ernment is keen to have Baer fight Schmeling abroad and is willing to spend a fortune to bring the fight about provided Schmeling triumphs at Hamburg. •'Some weeks ago we felt out Baer, offering him $150,000 to meet Schmel ing,” Kirsch said. “He laughed at us and said his price was $500,000. That ' is out of the question, but if Schmel ing beats Hamas we'll make another bid up to $300,000 and we believe he will accept." Kirsch, who is assisting Walter Rothenberg in staging the Hamas Schmeling show, said arrangements had been made to deposit the Penn sylvanian's guarantee—$25.000—in a Paris bank by February 1. thus remov ing the last obstacle to the bout. It had been feared, mostly by Squire Charlie Harvey. Hamas' manager, that I the money would not be forthcoming. 1 since the German government usually prohibits the shipment of such large sums from the country. However. Chancellor Hitler considers the fight good propaganda for Ger | many and has consented that Hamas' end of the purse be posted in Paris. Kirseh and Harvey conferred today j and the latter was assured he will get I an even break from the officials at' Hamburg. ‘If Hamas wins he will get the de cision. all right." Kirseh said. "The fight is so important to the German government that it will step in and re verse the decision if it is not fair and impartial.” Jimmy Bronson, who handles Wal ter Neusel. another German heavy weight. said today Baer has agreed, to mingle with Neusel in a 10-round, no decision exhibition at Chicago in March under the auspices of Jim Mul len and Nate Lewis. Neusel will sail for the States imme diately after his fight with Jack Peter i son, February 4. in London. IN DIXIE TOURNEY Simmons of Norfolk Sets World Mark, With Gulli in Second Place.

Little pointed out that, in the main, the coaches favor letting the rules stand as they are, but added there was a strong possibility that some changes in the regulations govern ing the use of the lateral pass would be recommended. Under tpe present rufe* H a com* pleted forward pass, or a run. is followed by an attempted lateral which Inadvertently goes forward, the ball goes back to the point where the play originated and the offensive team loses a down. Many coaches feel that this is an excessive penalty and that the ball should be declared dead at the point where the at tempted lateral was thrown. "It is my personal opinion,” said Little, “that in such cases the ball should be declared dead at the point where the lateral was thrown and that some penalty should then be exacted at that spot. An accidental forward pass where a lateral was in tended should not cost the offensive team all the yardage gained on play otherwise perfectly executed. "In our game with Syracuse, for instance, one of our backs got loose for 20 yards, then tossed a lateral good for 10 more, but the next lateral was declared a forward and we lost all the gain we had made on the run and the first lateral.” Little said that virtually all the - other changes suggested at the asso ciation's annual meetings probably would come before the committee, in cluding proposals that the goal posts be placed on the goal line again and that forward passing be per mitted at any point behind the line of scrimmage. Doubt was expressed, however, that any of these other al j terations would be approved. After next week's meeting. Little, W. A. Alexander of Georgia Teth and Noble Kizer of Purdue will carry the recommendations to the National Rules Committee. They represent the coaches as advisory members of the Rules Committee. Among those expected to attend the Coaches' Committee meeting are Jock Sutherland of Pittsburgh, Andy Kerr of Colgate. Little. Kizer, Alexander. Ted Cox of Tulane.
