Open Golf Tournament With $35,000 Purse Is Planned for 1937 WOULD MINIMIZE U. S. OPEN EVENT Two Commercial Sponsors in Back of Move for World Classic. BY W. R. MoCALLUM. AREAL open golf tournament which will make the national open championship, with Its $5,000 prize money, and even the Biltmore affair, with 10 grand, look to be piker shows, Is In the build up stage and may be announced with in a few weeks, for the Summer of 1937. It will be. If the thing goes through, a 72-hole links Joust for a total purse around $35,000, which will make It the biggest financial affair ever offered in golf. Two commercial sponsors, one of them a cigarette outfit, are consid ering financing the proposition. To date the $25,000 Agua Caliente tournament of the frenzied days of prohibition, when the "hot water" spot In Upper Mexico, hard by Los Angeles, was working day and night, holds the record for financial return to golfers. Gene Made Good on Boast. /'^JENE SABAZEN gazed on a wheel ^ harrow full of silver dollars, 10, 000 of them, announced he was going to win the wheel-barrow and its con tents, and did just that. It helped a long way to buy that farm in Con necticut. But there aren’t any such tournaments around any more. The BUtmore, with $10,000, Is tops nowa days. If the P. G. A. can put across the $35,000 affair which is in the making, you can look for every golf pro In the world to have a crack at the heavy dough, even if, as is now pro posed, a $50 entry fee be piled on top ©f the $30,000 purse. What a tournament that would be, with something around $18,000 first money. And can you imagine a guy coming up to a finishing hole like the eighteenth at Baltusrol, with a 4 to win by a shot? Or a guy with a 3-foot putt to win that amount of money? It would take some steel-ribbed gent like Sarazen or Horton Smith of the Iron nerves, to look over a situation of that kind and knock the back out of the cup with the winning putt. Sise of Field a Problem. TF THE P. G. A. can put It across, it J probably will lead to a flock of big money open tournaments throughout the land, which Is just what the pro body wants. The pros already think they are underpaid for their links labors, but they won’t be if that affair for 35 grand goes over, and if it is fol lowed by a flock of *10.000 tourna ments, as it probably will be. Tournament Committee members of the F. G. A. would like to see it made into a real stake race, a sort of unoffi cial world championship, by obtaining the entries of Alf Padgham. British open champ; Henry Cotton, and out standing players from Japan and South America. There isn’t much doubt that such an affair would pack ’em In. The toughest job would be to limit the entry to a field that could he well handled, even at the *50 entry fee. WASHINGTON golfers are do ing a lot of traveling around the country this week. With four of the public links stars in the thick of the going at Farmingdale, Long Island, where Claude Rippy may do some business In the national municipal champion ship, three Washington pros were at Philadelphia today playing in the Quaker City open tourney. They were Bob Barnett, Leo Walper and ClifT Spencer, and all of ’em have good chances to finish in the money in the tourney which Barnett won several years ago. latter in the week a few Washing tonians will play in the Bald Peak tourney at Bald Peak, N. H., one of the •wanky resorts of the East. y CALVERT DICKEY is at it again. 1 * The big hook and slice man got one of those miracle Dickey birdies yesterday at Washington. Playing the fifteenth hole he hooked his tee shot into the ditch at the bend in the hasard. Lifting out with the loss of a stroke Dickey whacked his third shot on the green, and sank the putt for a bird 4 on the par 5 hole. He gets so many unorthodox pars and birdies that his boy friends are used to it, or ought to be by now. Army-Navy Country Club golfers scored a 20-to-19 victory over Wash ington Golf and Country Club in a team match yesterday over the l Cherrydale course. The winning point came from a 10-foot putt holed on the eighteenth green by Col. J. P. Buchanan, who beat John Thacker with the putt. A return match will be played In the Pall. If any one knows who won that “Giants” versus “Runts” match at Indian Spring yesterday, he must be able to twist around the statements of the two opposing captains. At the end of the contest both Capt. Tommy Utz of the “Runts” and Capt. E. B. Wagner of the “Giants” claimed a vic tory, but the crabs took a licking at the feast which followed the match. That was, the only real casualty. Roland MacKenzie got warm yes terday and scored a 4-under-par 68 over his home course at Congres sional, playing in a match with J. O. Rhyne. Roger Peacock and Willie Low, his assistant in the golf shop. AT MANOR four players tied for first place in the blind bogey tourney billed as the week-end feature. They were J. W. Harvey, Jr.; C. Leakin, J. B. Crosby and C. W. Hardy, all tied with net cards of 71. Winifred Paunce, former District women’s golf champ, set a new unoffi cial record for the Manor layout with a card of 78, one shot below the mark set by Mr/. Dorothy Campbell Hurd two years ago. Up at q/rmlngdale, Long Island, Claude Rippy shot a subpar 70 in a practice round which should augur well for the young man in the medal round today. Rippy is sure to qualify for the match play rounds which start Wednesday. PLUGS D. C.'gRID STARS McDonald Devotes Radio Program to Leemsns and Tangora.

S. Amateurs. Bv (he Associated Press. OMAHA, Nebr.. July 20— Paul Leslie, a long-hitting youth from Jefferson City. Mo., has nominated himself for a place among the candidates to succeed W. Lawson Little as ruler of the coun try’s amateur golfers. The 20-year-old pre-medical stu dent of Louisiana State University for mally placed his name on file yesterday by winning the Western amateur | crown in a stirring battle with Bob Fraser of Omaha. Fraser a Strong Finisher. I ESLIE, who had eliminated such stars as Eddie Held of South Bridge. Mass.; W. Don Edwards of San Jose, Celif.; Jack Munger of Dallas, Tex., and Chicago’s Johnny Lehman, started the final round as though he would score the easiest sort of triumph. He had to settle, however, for a 2 and 1 decision. At nine holes, he was 3 up; at 18, for which he shot a fine 34—35—69, his margin was four holes. By the twenty-fourth, he was 7 up and apparently had an overwhelming victory cinched. Fraser started his drive at the twenty-fifth, however, and shot 3 under par golf for 11 holes, winning five of them to all but catch the Missourian. Will Try for National. T ESLIE, who will attempt to qualify for the national amateur cham pionship battle, had won only one title before connecting with the Western. He won the Southern intercollegiate crown in 1935, and last month reached the final of the national intercollegiate tournament, losing to Chuck Kocsis of Michigan. He had made two previous bids for Western honors, In 1934 and 1935, but both times was eliminated by Charlie Yates of Atlanta. Fraser, who never had reached the final round of anything bigger than a club tournament, made a huge success of his first appearance in the Western, in spite of his defeat. He eliminated the medalist, Matt Zadalis of Omaha, in his first match, and went the rest of the way to the final with victories over Ted Adams of Kansas City, Fred Haas, jr„ of New Orleans, and Grable Duvall of Kansas City. -• COLUMBIA TANKERS CONQUER KENWOOD VV/TTH Ann Bono and Oonroy Dougherty starring for the win ners, Columbia Country Club swim mers defeated the Kenwood Country Club, 73-51, yesterday at the Co lumbia pool. _ BOYS’ EVENTS. ^ _ Bon. 1ft years and under. 60-toot dash —Won by Jimmy Crowler (Columbia): second.

FAILING to detect any weakness in the fighting form of Barney Ross, world welterweight cham pion, the privileged few who are admitted to his workouts focused their optics on the tattooed frame of Phil Furr today as the local 147-pound champion ended his training grind. Originally scheduled to rest today, Furr, somewhat irked by tha publicity that has dwelled upon the deadly punching power of the sleek Rocs, de cided to demonstrate the effectiveness of his right paw before newspaper men and radio commentators in a workout at Griffith Stadium. Meyer Rowan and Bobby Dechter were slated to absorb the punishment. For the second time In aa many days Boat knocked out hia first spar ring partner in the first round. Chill ing Stanford Carrier Saturday, Ross added another victim to his list yes terday, planting a solid right mitten on the jaw of Buster Wages, a rangy middleweight, after a few seconds of heated swinging. Preliminary Boys Ambitious. jD KFUSING to import hi* own *par mates, aa is usual with champions, Barney has faced a group of clever preliminary boys, all of whom are anxious to impress against probably the smoothest fighter ever to set foot in this city. Ross la an agreeable fellow providing his gparmates do not try to land a Sunday punch. When aroused, how ever, the Jewish socker rips both fists into his opponent with a deadliness that would floor an ox. Ritchie Mack and Mickey Page, although giving the champion stiff sessions, behaved them selves and remained upright. Helnie Miller, secretary of the Dit trict Boxing Commission, who has viewed both fighters in action, believes the bout, slated for Wednesday night at Griffith Stadium, will go the full 10-round distance, but expects Purr to be the victor if there is a knockout. Choice Seats Available. pHII, who boasts an advantage in * weight, height and reach, is con fident of disposing of the welterweight king. Should he do so, Purr will be in line for a title bout with Ross in New York. Following his training session. Ross attended the second game of the double-header between Washington and Cleveland and then was Intro duced from the stage of the Loews Pox Theater. At both places he was cheered and besieged by autograph seekers. Today Barney, following his work out, was to journey to Baltimore to meet newspaper men of that city, while tomorrow night at 7:15 o’clock Ross will Instruct a group of locol Golden Gloves boxers at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Despite a brisk sale, plenty of choice seats are available for the scrap. Tickets may be obtained at Joe Tur ner's Hotel Annapalis office, Goldie Ahearn's Men's Shop, Ninth and E streets, or at the cashier's window on the lobby floor of the Washington Post Building. Reservations may be secured by calling Metropolitan 3526 or Na tional 9220. -• DORADE SCORES DOUBLE Declared Class B as Well a* A Winner in Yacht Race. HONOLULU, July 20 </»»>.—The speedy yawl Dorade, winner of the California-Honolulu yacht race, added another victory today to her imposing string of transoceanic honors. Under handicap ratings for the craft that sailed from Santa Monica July 4. officials declared the 51-foot San Fran cisco yacht victor in Class B in addi tion to Class A.

BY ROBERTS B. PHILLIPS, JR. HR first major upset of the Southeastern polo tournament occurred yesterday when a stubborn team from the 16th Field Artillery of Fort Myer refused to yield an inch to the attacks of the highly touted Fauquler-Loudcun Polo Club and sent the Virginia visitors home smarting under a 9-7 defeat. Four thousand tense spectators wit nessed the swift battle cm Potomac Park field. They had come expect ing to see the Virginians, second fa vorites to win the tournament, quickly overcome the 5-goal handicap accord ed the artillerymen, and from there on pile up an impressive score. In stead, the Army gunners opened up a slashing barrage in the tint half, and during that period put over just as many bull's-eye blasts as the In vaders. Visitors Stage Rally. YLTITH the score at 8—3 when the ” second half began, the visitors began a frantic rally in the fourth chukker and ran the count up to 8-6 when Dick Kirkpatrick scored twice »nd Denny Sklnker once In that frame. Near the start of the fifth, Howard Fair slipped over another tally, and with the board reading 8-7, every one believed the artillery’s happy days were over. The prophets were wrong. Lieut. Joe Oanahl and Capt. Dave Erskln, who had carried the burden of play for their side, stiffened their defense, turned aside the Virginia drives and finally worked the ball down the field to a point where Lieut. Harry King smashed it between the pylons with a difficult angle shot. After that the home team had only to hold their own to assure victory, and they did it with relative ease. Cavalry Yellows Now Favored. IITITH two of the high goal teams ’ relegated to the consolation class, only one big shot aggregation remains in the race for the privilege of going to Cleveland for the national 12-goal finals. That outfit is the 3d Cavalry Yellow team, scheduled to play a second-round match today at 4 pm. at Potomac Park against r Freebooter quartet enlisted to replace i the defaulting 110th Field Artillery team of Baltimore. The Freebooters consist of Lieut. ‘ Snuffy" Lynn. Capt. W. S. Ritchie, Maj. Robert McLure and Maj. Harry Buckley. Their total handicap is 3 gosls, as against the 11 goals carried by Capt. Don Galloway, Capt. Harry Stadler, Capt. H. W. Johnson and Lieut George Gruntrt of the Cavalry. Consequently the Free booters also will start the day with the maximum 5-goal advantage permitted by tournament rules. The summaries of yesterday's game: Ifith Field Artillery. 1 2 3 4 5 H Tot. No 1.

C., July 20 <4>V— Sunday base ball, center of a long civic controversy here, has returned with a bang. The Charlotte Hornets, semi-pro team, yesterday played the Twilight All-Stars in an advertised game before 2.000 spectators who had paid 25 cents each for admission. City law enforcement authorities made no attempt to interfere and the game went the full nine innings. Mayor Ben E. Douglas last night said he knew nothing about the game having been played. Chief E. D. Pittman of the city police force, when asked about the game, said that he had not been informed that such a game was to have been played. 44All-Weather” Jack McCarron D. C. \s Most Rugged Linksman BY THIS time the old boy’s dogs must be barking from wearing ’em out on flint-like fairways, but you’d never know It to look at Jack McCarron, Congressional Country Club’s iron man golfer. Nor has the smoothness of the funnlest looking and one of the deadliest put ting strokes been dimmed by the pas sage of the years. "All Weather” Jack, he came to be known some years back, when he played 42 consecutive days through the *now and sleet of a dreary Win ter, back in the days when Sandy Armour, rugged Scot that he was, used to challenge McCarron with the bias.: "Are you game for a round of golf today, Jackie?” Always Ready to Flay. JACKIE never turned him down, " even If the snow lay drifted over the hollows of the golf course, and between ’em they set a record for ruggedness that probably will stand for many a year. Today it’s Just the same. With the mercury lifting toward new altitude records. Jack McCarron must get in his dally round of golf, attired in shorts and a "bring ’em back alive” helmet. The same McCarron probably plays more golf than any club swinger around Washington and there isn’t much question that he is the most consistent player around Washington. No sissy is Jack, for no matter what the weather, hot or cold, he must get in his dally round. Friends of V. Calvert Dickey, the big hook and slice man of tha Wash ington Oolf and Country Club, may challenge the statement, but there Isn’t much question that Jack Mc Carron plays more golf than any man around the Capital. Jack himself fig ures that he plays around 300 games a year, sometimes more, and sever less. And he doesn't play so badly, either. Scofes of 76 and 77 roll reg ularly from the flailing clubs of the McCarron, and he is one of the sweet est putters you could find in many a jaunt around a bunkered golf course. Dickey plays a lot of golf, but Mc Carron shades him for ruggedness. We’ve seen Jack step out on the first tee, smiling his bland smile, on days when Calvert was satisned to play the putting game In Dave Thomson’s golf shop. Undoubtedly, McCarron plays more golf than any man around Washington. He holds the local rec ord for days of play, without any question. Finally Goes to Florida, T AST Winter was a bad one. For weeks snow covered the Congres sional course, and finally Jack had to give up. Twasn’t any fun ploughing through the drifts, so he gathered Andy Walker Into his camp and drove down to Jacksonville, where he played for 10 days at Ponte Vedra, where Roland MacKentle holds forth during the Winter. And next Winter, If It is at all pos sible, you’ll find Jackie out there, fac ing the biting blasts with Bill Ullman and Bill Hughes, his favorite com panions In the "animal" game. Nor does McCarron do so badly In this tricky form of golf scoring, either. He can putt as well as Ullman, and he Is a better golfer. You’ve got to hand It to Jack McCarron for his golf consistency. *• Golf With a Kick in It MILDRED TREADWAY, A St. Louis lassie, practices “code ball,” a game In which the only legitimate stroke is a kick, in preparation for a tournament to be held there shortly. —Wide World Photo. Four-Time Star of St. Paul Open in Play-off With Metz for Title. By the Associated Pres*. T. PAUL, July 20 —The veteran Lighthorse Harry Cooper of Chicago looked today for more links wizardry—like that which brought him from iix strokes back to a first-place tie—to help him in his play-off battle with a young neigh bor, Dick Metz of Lake Forest.

'T'HE outlook was not bright as Cooper started the last 36 holes of the regular play six strokes behind Bill Mehlhom of Louisville, the half way leader. But a record-smashing 63 on the morning round brought Cooper within a stroke of Metz, who meanwhile had taken over the lead ership. Metz had blazed over the course in sensational fashion until the final round, when he slipped to 73, one over par. Cooper also relaxed in the afternoon, but a birdie on the final hole, where he putted for an eagle and missed by 4 feet, gave him a par 72 and the tie. At Top for Fourth Time. TT WAS the fourth time Cooper fin ished at the top in the seven years j of the tournament. Twice he won i outright, and once he entered the 1 only other play-off. a three-way tie won by Johnny Revolta of Evanston, Hi.

OFFICIALS of the Boulevard Farms horse and hunt show apparently have succeeded skillfully In avoiding the [ three pet peeves of local exhibitors in preparing for their meet, to be held next Saturday on the estate of Ed mund P. Montgomery, American Con | sul to Mexico. The hue and cry for a layout where i hunters may be seen in action over j jumps typical of those encountered in ! the field has been answered by the construction of a splendid outside course on the grounds of Boulevard Farms, located on the Mount Verr.on ; boulevard about 4 miles south of Al j exandria. Prejudice Is Avoided. JN ADDITION, the committee has taken a firm stand against the presence of dealers In equine flesh ! occupying the judges' circle, and two expert horsemen who have no inter est in the commercial end of the sport villi be brought from distant points | to ‘ pin the ribbons.” Also, the pleas of exhibitors for well-talanced programs have been an 1 swered by a card that affords both hunters and Jumpers, children or adult riders, an equal opportunity to annex the championship trophy. Program Well Balanced. 'T'HE program is one of the best 1 balanced presented hereabouts this year, with the show, scheduled to start at 10:30 am. and continue ! throughout the day, being made up of the following classes: Junior jumpers, junior hunters, hunter hacks, bridle path hacks, ; green hunters, ladies’ hunters, work ing hunters, hunter pairs, qualified hunters, corinthlan, hunt teams, nov j ice jumpers, open jumpers, touch - and-out and handy jumpers. In ad dition a consolation class, a rarity In one-day meets, has been included for non-blue ribbon winners of the show. The horse scoring the greatest number of points in the champion ship classes will receive the Boulevard Farms Challenge Trophy, offered by Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery.

The coaches also are aware of their responsibility and expect to have their biggest Job In the final week get ting the athletes back Into rhape. But they anticipate finding the best con ditioning facilities at Berlin they have had on any trip. Harriers Need Most Work. 'I'he short-distance men. sprinters and Jumpers, recover their form quickly, whereas the distance runners need a maximum of work to keep at top form.” Hamilton stressed the fact that the Americans must avoid over-confidence, especially because relatively .little Is known about the best of their' foreign rivals.

Glenn Cunningham, the veteran Kan san, is the “man to beat" in the 1.500 meters, while Don Lash of Indiana has “a great chance to win one of the distance races.” That the Washington crew, with the possible exception of the 1928 Cali fornia eight, is the finest boatload which has yet represented America is the view of Henry Penn Burke of Philadelphia, chairman of the Olympic Rowing Committee. “The Huskies, stroked by Piano Player Don Hume, have rhythm." ex plains Burke. “They combine the maximum of power with the minimum of effort and have proved they have the stuff to win under pressure. I expect the Swiss or Italian chal lengers will have to turn in an Olympio record performance to beat A1 Ul brickson's boys.” 223 MUNY GOLFERS GO FOR U. S.
