Wood Tennis Boon Seen in Added Weight: Jones Gives Color to Augusta Golf
A A. <· τη DRUPES 9 POUNDS ON HIM ' McGovern Expects to Make Tough 160-Pounder Out of Frail Neirnan. BY BOB CAVAGNARO, Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK, March 23.—They were lunching together more than four months ago, when Sidney B. Wood, jr., Ameri ca's second-ranking tennis star, ad dressed former Heavyweight Boxing Champion Gene Tunney: "Gene," asked Wood, who is 23 years old, "how does a fellow go about building up his body?" Wood, who is slated to draw a sin pies assignment on the United States Davis Cup team again, had been handicapped in his court adventures by a frail physique. "Well, if you can't go into the mountains for half a year," Tunney said, "turn yourself over to Artie Mc Govern." That was on November 15. 1934. Wood weighed barely 137 pounds. He has broad shoulders, a thick chest, slim waist and sturdy legs. "I saw in a minute," said McGov ern, "that he was the same type as Johnny Farrell, the former national open golf champion. He was weak in the middle. There were no mus cular walls there to hold his stomach in place. It's a pretty common con dition with most athletes except boxers." Artie Gets Results. McGOVERN did put Wood on a diet. Smoking and all forms of alcohol were taboo. Wood j was ordered to drink two quarts of j milk between meals. Then McGcvern put him through a light course of exercises with a gym nasium wand, weights and medicine ball. Slowly the course was increased to running on a treadmill and bicycle riding. After the first month McGovern con centrated on his charge's midsection, j Wood sat on a stool 2 feet above the ! floor, slipped his feet in a pair of rubber braces on the floor and then leaned backward until his head touch ed the boards. Then he straight ened up. Interspersed with punching a heavy bag. making knots on a treadmill and routine calisthenics to limber up. Wood has been going through this j form of abdominal exercise for the last three months, three days a week. "He weighs 146 pounds today and he's as hard as a rock in the middle," said McGovern. Tough in the Middle. AS QUICK as a flash and without warning, McGovern shot a straight right into Wood's stomach. The tennis player took it without wincing. "Lay 00 'that stuff, Artie," he said. "If my friends hear about it they'll be making a punching bag of me." At one stage of the course Mc Govern worked Wood's weight up to 148 pounds, a gain of 11 pounds, but he lost several pounds on a tennis trip to Florida. Wood is going to interrupt his train ing for a trip to the Pacific Coast. He's leaving for California Friday and plans to spend a month in the sunshine, occasionally playing tennis with young Donald Budge and Gene Mako, mentioned as Davis Cup can didates, but for the most he'll rest and do setting-up exercises daily. "If he's faithful to my instructions," said McGovern, "he should come back weighing close to 160 pounds. That will give him the stamina and en durance he needs." Here are Wood's physical dimen sions, before and now: Chest, normal 32 35 weight Neck . Before.

Helen Wills Moody, former queen of the tennis world, batted a ball softly against a marked wall here today and an nounced she was preparing for a comeback that will lead to national tournaments next year—"if every thing goes all right." Mrs. Moody, whose wall practice today was her third since her career on the courts was inter rupted by an injury in Septem ber, 1933, stated: • I'm not planning on any com petition this year. I don't want to make any plans, because I might disappoint myself. If I do play it will be in local tournaments first. You know you can't play in national tournaments until you're sure of yourself. Next year, if everything goes all right, I'll play." Noted Sandlotter Proves Adept at Another Game. Orletsky Tumbles.

March 23.— Ο. B. Keeler. world champion golf spectator and a veteran at dodging wild shots, suffered his first accident on a golf course to day. a crack on the head from a ball while watching the Charleston open tournament. The Atlanta sports writer, who followed Bobby Jones to virtually all the former grand-slam cham pions' tournaments and probably has seen more championship events than any other man. was taken from the course with blood stream ing from a cut on the back of his head. Within a short while, however, he returned and did a story. Keeler was near the sixteenth green, with his back turned to the play, when Harold McSpaden's second shot, an iron which was sliced off line, struck him. PICARD COLLECTS CHARLESTON COIN Gallery Is Given Thrill as Former Local Pro Wins Open Golf Tourney. By the Associated Press. CHARLESTON, S. C.. March 23. —Leading from the opening round, Henry Picard contin ued his hot pace down the stretch today and came in the winner of the $3,000 Charleston open golf tournament, to the great delight of a wild gallery which surged over the Wappoo course in the wake of the former local pro. A 70 on his wind-up round of the 72 holes of play gave Picard, who left Charleston last December to take over the professional's post at Hershey, Pa., the championship by a two-stroke margin over Johnny Révolta of Mil waukee. Picard's aggregate of 278 was five strokes higher than the winning total turned in last year by Paul Runyan, when the White Plains (Ν. Y.) mar vel closed out with a 65. Victor Ghezzl, Deal, N. J., shot the lowest round of the final day, a crackling 67, and, with his closing rush, came into a tie for third place at 282 with Harry Cooper, Chicago. McSpaden Blows Γρ. HAROLD McSPADEN of Kansas City, after shooting subpar golf for three days and holding sec ond place at the three-quarter mark, cracked on his final round and soared j to an 83. which left him out of the money with 294. Wifify Cox closed out with his third round of the tournament under 70 and finished behind Ghezzi and Cooper with 283. The Brooklyn gob'i rounds were 69—78—67—69. Runyan, so completely the master of the wind-swept seaside links last year, could break par of 71 only once in defense of his title. His 66 of yesterday brought him back into the running after previous rounds of 75 and 71, but he could dc no better than a 73 on his final trj and finished seven strokes behind Pic I ard and in a tie, at 285, with Ky Laf ; foon of Denver and Leo Mallory. youn( j assistant professional to Johnnj Golden of Noroton.

BY FRANCIS J. POWERS. A FORTNIGHT hence, Robert Tyre Jones will awing his wood and iron cudgels against the best professional golf talent of the country. The main story of the masters' tournament over the National Golf Links of Augusta, was, is and will be Robert Tyre Jones, so long M he competes in the event. Without Jones in the field, the tournament would be just another professional competition. Jones, who for 10 years made cham pionships a nightmare for the pro fessional brethren, still is the favorite target for the journeymen. The pro fessionals hesitate to recall Jones' championship days and some of the younger stars, who never played against the Georgian, are inclined to believe the man was lucky or maybE overrated. The doubters may learn a severe lesson in the forthcoming masters' battle, even as Hagen, Sara zen, Farrell and others of Robert's contemporaries did when the barrister was picking off seven national open championships. Didn't Have Fair Chance. IN THE inaugural of the Masters tournament last year, Jones did not play up to his old form, finish ign 10 strokes behind Horton Smith, the winner. Still, few, if any, of the veterans were heard to remark that "Jones' game was not what it used to be." Bob played through the 1934 tournament under a severe handicap. In addition to competing against the country's best professoinal shotmakers —a task which imposes a heavy strain —he was saddled with many of the details of managing the event and the combination prevented him from play ing to true form until the last round. This time. Jones will attack the masters' field with fewer extraneous assignments and is likely to show con siderable if not all the brilliant form which made him the greatest golfer of all time. One hears that Jones is very ambitious to win at Augusta this Spring and that he has been devoting much time to practice. Informants who saw Jones play on the Pacific Coast during the last Winter and in the South declare he is hitting the ball with all the skill of his champion ship years. If Bob is putting in true form, he will revive the miseries which the professionals suffered so many ! years, for from tee to green he is quite as accurate as ever. Still Greatest Figure. ! a LTHOUGH Jones has been out of J\ national competition for four seasons, he remains the beau ideal of the golf world. Hence the widespread interest in the Augusta j tournament. A victory for the Georgian would do the professionals no good so they will gang him in a polite and proper way. if possible. Still one must concede Robert a very excellent chance to beat the field if he is attacking the j tournament seriously, even though he may have lost some slight part of his ' former legerdemain. The field at Augusta will be of na ; tional championship caliber and such youngsters as Ky Laffoon. Harold Mc Spaden. Vic Ghezzi and Johnny Ré volta will be fighting for the fame which will come with victory; match ing their more youthful elan against the veterans. The Augusta tourna ment. with Jones in the field, rapildy is taking a place second only to the national, western and metropolitan opens. Without Jones it's just another tournament. The emperor still Is the greatest figure on the fairways. -, BARKS FROM DOGDOM BY R. R. TAYNXON I » GREAT many persons who re ! Λ ceived or bought a pedigreed J \ dog for the first time this past 1 \ Christmas land there was a record number of such this year) seriously are considering enter ing their particular Rovers in the forthcoming show. Presumably Rover was 2 months ! old at Christmas, which would make [ him 6 months old by show time, the ! minimum age at which a puppy may ; be shown at an A. K. C. show. It is I wise to show the puppy in one class ι only, the puppy class. A 6-month-old j puppy usually has, a stiff enough 1 J competition in that class without go ; ! ing up against dogs that are fully | j matured and veteran showmen. ! To avoid disappointment it would I be wise to get the unbiased opinion , I of a person who knows the breed be I ; fore entering the pup. if possible, j While few people are foolish enough ; to expect to win top honors with a , ; young pup. one doesn't like to have one's own pet so far outclassed that he appears a different breed of animal. Having decided to show the dog. g few lessons well learned may mean [ the difference between a blue rib ; bon and no ribbon. Have your dog ' in first-class condition physically, ' neither too fat nor too lean. A clear j eye, an alert bearing and a coat that shines with health will carry one far on the road to winners. Have him trained to the lead, so he neither strains nor holds back. Teach him to stand at attention for ■ a minute or two—a tidbit is the cor ■ rect reward for holding a pose. Ac ■ custom him to strange people, strange ι noises and strange dogs. ι In bathing a dog that has much ί white on him, add a little blueing to the rinse water to counteract any yellowish cast In the white. If your dog is one of the terrier breeds that needs much barbering. take him to j an expert as long before the show t as possible for the best results. ! The Southern circuit consists of ■ 10 shows beginning with Atlanta on ' March 29 and ending with Richmond • j just before the Washington show. The reason Washington is not con sidered on the Southern circuit is that the number of points awarded for wins in Washington follow the Northern or Eastern schedule. In other words, competition in Washington has to be considerably stiffer for a given number of points than- competition In Richmond. For that reason it is becoming the cus tom, even among Northern breeders, for those who want to finish a champicn quickly to send their dogs to the Southern shows. And that means that in » few years the point rating will be changed to accord with that of the older shows. Among local exhibitors who plan on attending some or all of the Southern shows are the Avion Ken nels. Jonedith Kennels. Aspin Hill Kennels and Ruffcote Kennels. It's not every dog that lends his name to a culinary achievement. Skippy is a vivacious little Boston terrier belonging to a Washington sportsman. Recently he visited Beech Tree Farm, where he amused the chil dren by begging for his blanket every time he wanted to go outdoors. The other evening when hot dogs baked in biscuit dough appeared on the sup per table they promptly were chris tened "Skippies"! « SIGN WITH PORTSMOUTH. NEWPORT NEWS, Va..
