Few Municipal Golf Products Have Traveled Far Along Championship Road

VOIGT ONE OF TRIO
: TO BE BIG THREAT
Held and Campbell Others
to Become Conspicuous
in National Play.
BY WALTER R. MacCALLUM.
WITH all the golf played on
the public courses through
out the Nation, and the un
doubted high quality of golf
played by the boys who gather at the
Btional public links title chase, the
Is who use the pay-as-you-play
•curses Haven't been able to get any
where In the national amateur cham
pionship.
All of which must mean, if you
look closely at the record, that even
though they are good, they are not
good enough to get along in high-class
company among the club golfers.
Only three products of the public
links have traveled anywhere in the
6elect company of the amateur cham
pionship and only one of these has
shown promise of winning the cham
pionship. That man is George Voigt,
■who learned the game at East Po
tomac Park, and George nowadays is
considered among the experts to be
but a shadow of his old-time self and
hardly good enough to be a major
threat in the big championship.
Capable Performers.
'T'HE others are Eddie Held, the St.
Louis boy who won the public
links title in 1922—the first year it
was played, and Scotty Campbell from
the Pacific Northwest, who is a good
golfer, but hasn’t been able to get
along in the big event.
George Voigt never won the na
tional public links championship. He
did get along pretty well in the 1924
tournament, but he wasn’t good
enough to win. Only after George had
had a crack at club golf and invitation
tournament golf did he start on his
big winning streak. In the years of
1926, 1927 and 1928 George won
nearly 40 matches in tournaments be
fore he dropped one. And in 1928 he
won the qualifying medal in the ama
teur championship.
In 1929 he went to the semi-final
and looked like a winner before Jimmy
Johnston bounced a pitch shot off a
tree at Pebble Beach and whipped
George on the thirty-ninth hole. In
1930 he was a member of the Walker
Cup team and came within a putt of
licking Bob Jones at St. Andrews.
Not .Quite Good Enough.
■JLJELD, the other public links star,
1 who has gone well in big tourna
ments, never has been able to get
along in the United States amateur
title tourney, even though he has
grabbed two Canadian championships.
Eddie is a good golfer, but he isn’t
good enough. So was George Aulbach
and so is Frankie Strafaci, the Brook
lyn boy who holds the championship
today. But on the record, the public
links boys, good as they are, cannot
seem to bust through and grab the
big championship.
Rumor has it, tor the ’steenth time,
that Indian Spring is to be cut up
Into building lots . . . with some 30
pretty little bungalows to adorn one
of the fairways . . . but no one con
nected with the club is talking . . .
Fred McLeod agrees with Tommy
Armour that the pro tournament
racket is the toughest setup in pro
fessional sport... Lawson Little prob
ably will spend a few days here again
on his way North after the Jones
tourney early in April.

Rinaldis Ahead.
THE first quarter-final game of
the Post's A. A. U. basket ball
tournament will be played to
night when George Washing
ton University’s ereack freshman team
faces Rockville, a five that already
boasts of upsetting one favorite in the
tournament.
Winner of all but 2 of their 22
games this season, the Colonial year
lings will take the floor at 9:30 o’clock
against a team that eliminated the
highly-rated Bureau of Investigation
I quint in its last start. Before conquer
i mg the G-Men, 22-21, Rockville swept
to an easy 44-21 victory over National
| Capital Parks.
This game, the only unlimited one

with the 145-pound game between the
Northeast Boys' Club and the Sham

contest will follow, with the Washing
ton Boys’ Club tossing baskets against
the Takoma Fire Department court
men.
Rinaldis Prove Supremacy.
ALTHOUGH they won only by a
26-24 score, there hardly can be
any doubt as to the superiority of the
Rinaldi Tailors over the Delaware &
Hudson basketers this Winter. Last
night's victory, coining in the last
minute of play, was the fourth in five
starts for the Tailors over the D. &
H. tossers in the jpurrent campaign.
Two free throws by Bill Noonan won
the ball game. Rinaldi led at the
half, 14-12.
After twice being tied by the Mount
Rainier girls’ team, the Garfield sextet
, finally beat their stubborn rivals in a
j game which ended 27-15.
Two 145-pound games found Ehrlich

THE SPORTUGHT
U. S. in Form to Make All Rivals Step
From 100 to 1,500 Meters at Olympics.
_BY GRANTLAND RICE_
ADVANCE ECHOES.
Most people yearn to hear again
The songs of Spring amid the vines—
The biras that chirp by field and glen,
The winds that whisper through the pines;
More lyrical, and much more terse,
The ultimate of human sounds,
I’d rather hear the duffer curse
When some one hollers "outerbounds!”
The bobbin’ robin’s roundelay
Will eoon go lilting through the land;
The wren, the cat bird and the jay
Will open nature’s outdoor band;
Such music brings a world-wide throb
To all who wait for Spring’s first hymn—
I’d rather hear the duffer sob
When 3-foot putts hang on the rim.
FOUR years ago this fiscal Spring
the West Coast picked up one
of the largest shocks of its
sporting history.
It all happened when a young
Arkansas runner from Pennsylvania
University stepped away from Big Ben
Eastman over the quarter route. His
name was Carr—and Carr was about
as close to running perfection as any
thing you'll see again this side of a
coyote. Ben Eastman broke world
records, but he couldn't beat Carr at
this distance—including the 400-meter
test. Now Carr is out of it. but it is
going to take another record break to
check out Eastman at a new distance—
800 meters—where the ex-Stanford
star will be one of America’s main
Olympic hopeg.
I saw Eastman set a new half
mile record at Princeton over a
year ago and be is just as good
today as he ever was.
In fact, Dean Cromwell, the able
track mandarin at Southern Cali
fornia, thinks Big Ben should be one
of the shining lights of the Berlin
pageant. “When you figure Eastman’s
time in the quarter and the half—at
the 400 and 800 meter distances—I
doubt that any one could ever meet
him at these two distances. Eastman
has a rare combination of stamina
and speed. He can hold a killing pace
at 800 meters and still finish with a
sprint. He should be one of our lead
ing stars.”
Eastman will be one of the few left
overs from the 1932 Olympic games,
where Los Angeles put on her record
breaking show. Most of the others
who picked up the laurel four years
ago will make no headlines this Spring
and Summer. Pour years can take
quite a toll, but they haven’t bothered
Big Ben of Stanford to any extent.
Change for Better.
TP YOU talk with Dean Cromwell
and other track coaches you get a
much more pleasant picture of our
track prospects than we’ve had in
years. As a rule other nations have
put up the barricades h. yond the 400
meter span. From that point on they
ran us into the cinders and the clay.
Englishmen, Italians and Finns gal
loped by our fading hopes from the
800 meters to the marathon.
But at Berlin there is a good
chance that your Uncle Sam will
make somebody step from the
100 to the 1,500 meter chase.
No one has to worry about sprinters.
We may need a faster 400-meter man
than the books show today, but we
look much stronger at 800 and 1,500
than we have looked for years.
Something to Remember.
YlfE WERE checking back again
with that Carr-Eastman rivalry
of four years ago.
“It will be a long time.” one trainer
said, “before any one will see two such
men as Carr and Eastman driving
down the stretch. When you have two
men beating 47 seconds for the quarter
you have something to look at—and to
remember.”
Carr comes close to being the perfect
runner when it comes to a matter of
almost flawless form. He was the ef
fortless flyer. He could pick up speed
without showing the slightest sign of
any outside demand—any form of
struggle. No other runner, except pos
sibly Nurmi, has ever had this amazing
smoothness. They were both like the
wind blowing down the track.
But Carr had the harder test to
meet at the shorter route. Eastman
has never quite had Carr’s smooth
ness, but he remains' one of the great
est of all middle distance runners, and
after four years he will be as hard as
any man at Berlin to stop.
I know that Spring is still in
doubt,
For Dizzy Dean is holding out.
In fact, this Spring has lost its
sap,
With Babe Ruth digging in a trap.
Dr. Shapley of Harvard has discov
ered nine new worlds, but no one who
can stay six rounds with Joe Louis.

USER OF RACKETS
_
10,000 Sheep Are Required
to Provide Gut for 48
He Swings a Year.
By ths Associated Press.
NEW YORK. March 4 —It takes
10,000 sheep a year to keep
Gregory Mangin in tennis
rackets.
Mangin, three times winner of the
national indoor tennis championship
and seeker after his fourth title, is the
game's most prolific racket consumer
and that’s why the sheep raisers
profit.
The Newark, N. J„ champion uses
an average of 48 rackets a year and
usually has each restrung twice. It
takes 30 sheep to provide the gut for
one string and two strings are required
for each tennis bat. As a matter of
simple mathematics that means about
10,000 sheep for one player.
Rackets Coat Him $1,176.
Delving further into statistical mat
ters, Mangin's rackets, frame and
stringing, cost him $11.50 each. That
amounts to $552 a year. With each
restringing at $6.50, the work of fix
ing up those 48 rackets costs $624
more, for a grand total of $1,176.
xucic a a icttouu iui iv, cApiamcu
Stephen J. Peron, jr., who has the
task of keeping Mangin supplied.
“Greg requires that the gut be strung
tighter than any other player, be
cause he says he needs a hard sur
face to bring off volleys at the net.
His rackets are strung within almost
90 per cent of the full strength of the
gut. So you can say when he uses
them they’re at the breaking point.
He’s easily the game's biggest racket
consumer.'*
Regardless of the effect his racket
consumption has on the mortality
rate for sheep, Mangin can stand the
financial strain. He's a successful
stock broker.
“Get that straight,” cautioned Greg.
“Stock broker, not stock yard broker."
Playing Great Game.
Dr. Eugene McCauliff of Chicago
can explain the effect of the tight
stringing plus Mangin’s ability to
swing one of his numerous rackets
with deadly effect. McCauliff met
the sheep raisers’ friend yesterday,
when Mangin was at the very peak
of his game and lost, 6—2, 6—2.
“Ever since we were juniors, I’ve
played against Greg for 12 years,”
said McCauliff. “And you can take
it from me, Greg has never played
better. He’s just as fast as ever
and will take a lot of beating.”
Today's championship program was
given over to men’s and women's
doubles. Singles quarter finals in
both divisions will be played tomor
row.
CHASE TONY PENNA
IN HOLLYWOOD OPEN
Pensacola Pro Has Seven Birds
for a 64 to Lead in First
Hound by Three Shots.
By the Associated Press.
XJOLLYWOOD, Fla., March 4.—A
11 hundred professional golfers—
most of them wondering if Tony
Penna would crack—set out today over
the second 18 holes of the $2,500
72-hole Hollywood open tournament.
The question was whether the 28
year-old Pensacola, Fla., player could
hold the sizzling pace he set yesterday
when he toured the par-70 layout in
64 to jump three strokes ahead of the
field.
Penna picked up seven birdies,
slipping over par only once, as he
clipped three strokes off standard
figures going out and coining home to
tie Johnny Farrell's non-competitive
course record.
Closest to Penna, at sub-par 67s,
were four good professionals, Johnny
Revolts, Milwaukee; Bobby Cruick
shank, Richmond; Denny Shute, Bos
ton, and Lew Waldron, Chicago. At
68 were Clarence Doser, Rochester;
Harry Cooper, Chicago, and Vic
Ghezzi, Deal, N. J.; at 69, Bill Mehl
horn, Louisville; Leo Walper, Wash
ington, and Tom Kerrigan, Siwanoy,
N. Y.
Walter Hagen of Detroit was grouped
with two other veterans, Willie Mac
fsr*BH», Hew Taft., and Frank Walsh,
Chicago, at 70, while Helen Hicks,
Hewletts, Long Island, woman profes
sional was well back at 80.
HARGADEN SETS PACE.
With Ed Hargaden, Georgetown’s
former basket ball great, leading the
way, the Bureau of Investigation five

munity Center League last night with
a convincing 55-23 victory over the
Fire Department five. Hargaden rang
up 14 points.

PATTY BERG AGAIN
TOPS GOLFING ARRAY
Her 74 Is Two Strokes Better
Than Mrs. Crews—Shaky Put*
ter Costs Her Record.
By the Associated Press.
CT. AUGUSTINE, Fla., March 4.—
^ Patty Berg, the 18-year-old Min
neapolis star, held medalist honors
today as she teed off with Mrs. C.
R. Harbaugh of Cleveland for another
round of the Florida East Coast
Women's Golf Tournament.
Patty’s card, showing 74, was two
strokes better than the medal round
of Mrs. Maureen Orcutt Crews, last
year’s champion, who took a 76 for
second place.
Today’s match for Mrs. Crews was
with Agnes Garcey of London, Ontario.
Patty’s driving was good yesterday,
her second shots long and straight
and her approaches accurate, but
the putter was shaky, else she might
have bettered the 72 record set by
Mrs. Crews for the St. Augustine
links last year.
Mrs. Opal S. Hill of Kansas City
qualified at 77, Mrs. Harbaugh at
90 and Miss Garvey at 89.

ALL the golf shots are tough
babies for the duffer, but of
the whole kit and caboodle
Fred McLeod finds that the
wee chip or tiny pitch over a bunker
or ditch is the one that wrecks the
nerves of most dubs. "They just
can’t seem to swing smoothly on
the short pitches when they have a
hazard to carry," Fred says.
The McLeod, who hopes the Co
lumbia golf course will be open in
time to enable him to get in a few
practice rounds before he goes to
Augusta to play in the Jones tour
ney early next month, says one of the
toughest tasks in tutoring the duffer
is to convince him that he must ban
ish from his mind all thoughts of
trouble, and concentrate on keeping
his head down and swinging smoothly
when he has to make a short shot
over some kind of hazard.
‘But no matter how much you
tell ’em, they can’t seem to get over
that habit of jerking the club through
and lifting the head," Fred says.
“And I can’t blame ’em much. I’ve
seen some darned good golfers, con
fronted with a wee pitch over a

Here he is at the finish of a

trap, dump the dumed ball right
into the sand. It gets ’em all, but
it gets the duffer quicker, for he
hasn't learned that the club will do
the work and he tries to do it with
his hands, his hips, his shoulders
and everything else, but the club
head.
‘■'T'AKE our sgcond hole here at Co
lumbia,” Fred points out. “If
a man hits a good tee shot well down
the hill he has a delicate little pitch
over the ditch to a fairly big green.
But it is surprising how many golfers
want to see where that ball is going
before they even hit it. They lift the
head, swing too fast and dump that
ball in the ditch and before they
know it they have wrecked a score,
got away to a discouraging start and
ruined their disposition so thoroughly
that they want to quit.
‘‘And there isn’t very much I can
do except to tell ’em to concentrate
on swinging smoothly and look at
the ball. After all, there isn’t any
thing more humiliating than to miss
a little short pitch and dump the
ball into a ditch or a bunker. And
it could all be avoided by smooth
swinging and a little concentration.”
"But what is the toughest shot for
the better golfer—the expert?” we
asked Freddie. "Oh, that’s an easy
one,” he replied.
“It’s the putt. The way golf is
played nowadays you will find literally
scores of men who can play all the
shots up to the green; men who can
drive far and straight, hit their irons
true and long and pitch very well. But
they all have trouble around the cup.
When you find a good bunch of pros
in an open tournament you will find
the winner has been putting very well.
Tournaments are won 4 feet from the
cup and always will be.”
{"',RAIG McKEE, well known Indian
Spring golfer, and a qualifier for
the national amateur championship
last year, has switched his club affilia
tions and has applied for membership
at Columbia.
So has Ed Merkle, one of Indian
Spring’s more enthusiastic golfers and
erstwhile typothetae titleholder.
/"',LYDE B. ASHER, former Columbia
president, and one of the better
golfers of that club, has had a piece
of rough luck. Last month Clyde
packed his golf clubs and embarked
for a golf trip to Miami, where he
planned to play with Lou Laudick and
Hugh MacKenzie.
Hardly had he landed at Miami than
he was taken ill. He spent several
days in the hospital, never swung a
club and came back to Washington a
few days ago without getting in any
Winter golf.
AND, speaking of hard luck, Roland
MacKenzie had a bit of it Mon
day evening. Driving toward Wash
ington on his way north from Jackson
ville, the Congressional pro ran off the
road in a rainstorm near Gum Springs,
Va., just below Alexandria. His car
slid into a mudhole and while waiting
for a towing car, he tried to get out.
With the weight of a heavy trailer be
hind his car he stripped the gears and
had to be towed all the way home,
from a spot within 15 miles of tha
Capital.
T> OBERT P. SMITH, well-known
Washington lawyer and high in
Masonry, is the new president of the
Congressional Country Club. Its offi
cers met today at the University Club
to talk over committee assignments for
the year. Other officers were elected
as follows: First vice president, Theo
dore S. Grape; second vice president,
Gen. Frank T. Hines; third vice presi
dent, Dr. E. P. Copeland; fourth vice
president, Arthur Deibert; fifth vice
president, Bancroft P. Foley; treasurer,
Thomas J. Groome; secretary, Harvey
L. Cobb.
William W. Jones, jr., is chairman
of the Golf Committee and the Greens
Committee is headed by Maj. F. Mac
Kenzie Davison. The committee ap
pointments will be ratified by the club
board next Monday.
Meanwhile golf affairs at the club
were speeded by the return of Roland
MacKenzie, the club pro, who has been
at Jacksonville, Fla., for nearly three
< months. The golf course will not be
opened for several days although Reub
Hines, greenskeeper, hopes to have the
members playing on temporary greens
over the coming week end.
