Santa Claus Again to Cheer Bowlers in The Star’s Yule Tourney
$500 IN GIFTS GO TO HIGHROLLERS Men, Women to Compete on Handicap Basis on Any Drives They Prefer. By BOD THOMAS. ETTERS to Santa Claus will be written in strikes and spares by Washington duckpin shoot ers soon, which is another way of saying The Evening Star’s tenth annual Yuletide tournament is almost at hand. A dozen leaders of the Washington men's and women's bowling associa tions, which govern the largest group in the city devoted to one sport, will meet this evening at 6:30 at the Lucky Strike, birthplace of the giant tourna ment, to go over plans for the 1937 party. Their immediate task is light for there will be no major change in the scheme that resulted last year in one of the most successful bowling events, according to George L. Isemann, sec retary of the National Duckpin Bowl ing Congress, ever held anywhere. The feature of the 1936 tournament, which was an unusual promotional venture, will be stressed again, to wit: All contestants will be permitted to • roll at the establishments of their own choosing, but the scores will count as though all were shot on the same drives. Actually Group of Tourneys. 'J'HIS arrangement, worked out in last year’s Star tournament for the first time in the history of the game, was made practicable by the uniformly high standard of Washing ton mapleways. The Yuletide tournament actually is a group of about 20 tournaments with a common set of prizes. To qual ify for the prizes, totaling $500 in cash, an entrant must roll a set of live games, in many instances tacking two strings onto a regular league set. Twenty-five of every 100 at each establishment will qualify for the roll off, another five-game test, to be tak en by eacn qualifier at the same plant on which he or she rolled the pre liminary. Every maple establishment in the District and nearby Maryland and Virginia will stage a section of the tournament, which makes it the most convenient bowling event in the coun try. Couple this with the fact that there is no entry fee and that, through & handicap system, every bowler of moderate skill is afforded an oppor tunity to collect in competition with the best and you have an affair which hardly could be made more attractive. Must Finish by January 1. '^LLEY managers will set their own dates, the only provision being that all the finals must be completed by January 1. Whether a bowler is permitted to Incorporate three league games in the qualifying set will be optional with alley operators. The latter gain little actual profit from the tournament in asmuch as the final set is rolled with out cost to the bowler, but the business men of the sport regard the Yuletide pin party as a sound piece of promo tion. Male entrants will receive a handi cap of half the difference a game be tween their average and scratch, which is 125, the handicaps not to exceed 75 pins a set. Women's scratch is 112 with the handicap limit set at 60 sticks. Handicaps will be based on last season's averages and if a bowler did not participate in a league last season the franked pins will be ap portioned according to current aver ages, provided an entrant has rolled at least 30 games. All non-leaguers must shoot from scratch. Entry Blanks Out This Week. bowling establishments this week will be flooded with entry blanks and these contain the salient facts of the tournament. Detailed in formation will be supplied by any alley manager and the men’s and women’s associations are expected to have rep resentatives at all plants during the first several weeks of December to as sist in handling the details. Most of the alley pilots plan to stage their roll-off between December 27 and January 1 when many leagues sus pend competition. In the weeks immediately ahead you'll hear a lot about The Star Tour nament and the central theme will be: “Here really is a chance to gain something with nothing to lose.” ELLINWOOD, HERMIT, RETURNS TO SCHOOL Philosopher-Trackman No Longer Eligible to Compete for Chicago University. Bt the Associated Press. /"•JHICAGO, Nov. 22.—Ray Ellinwood, the University of Chicago track sensation of 1935, who left the campus for a hermit’s life in the California woods, is back on the Midway again— but his return brings no joy to fol lowers of the Maroon track team. Ellinwood. who as a sophomore es tablished an indoor world record of 49.1 for the 440-yard run In his first intercollegiate race, left school to study philosophy in a cabin cutside Pasa dena. He returned yesterday to Chi cago to complete requirements for a degree, but will not be eligible for athletic competition because he sold Indorsements to a tobacco company. Ellinwood late in 1935 set a Big Ten and world record of 48.9 seconds in winning the conference Indoor 440 yard title. THEY NEED SHAVES Marquette Soph Gridders Would Lose Beards in Extra Game. MILWAUKEE (/P).—Those three ••shaveless” sophomores of Marquette’s football squad — Bill Burke, Dave Braden and Dan K os ter—have it all figured out how they can give the campus barbers some business without going back on their vow. They pledged themselves to go with out shaves until the Golden Avalanche wins a ,major game. Since Duquesne is heavily favored in the season finale Saturday, the three sophs figure on in teresting authorities in a post-season popover in the Hope of setting shaves before Christmas. y Opposes Terps DON DUNLAP, Former Central High athlete, who is playing quarterback for Washington and Lee eleven, which will meet Maryland in the Baltimore Stadium next Thursday morning. Stan (Continued Prom Page A-18.) town’s 23-yard line the Terps drove to a touchdown. There was both an element of luck and a resourceful touch to this score, which cinched the verdict. Maryland was fortunate to be handed the ball at that spot and it was brilliant in tak ing advantage of the break. Using only four plays, Dobson's smartly coached outfit scored to make it 12-2. Speculation Still Goes On. ■yy^HAT might have happened had not Keating fumbled is purely speculative stuff. Late in the game Georgetown desperately flung passes and drove down to Maryland's 8-yard line for a first down. Here the Hilltoppers tried another pass, possibly to try to score in order to save time. A wide pass from Elmer Moulin to Joe Mellendick left the ball three yards from the goal and it was on the next play that Mellendick tried to carry over from tackle and fumbled. The more imaginative Georgetown rooters probably will nurse for some time to come the fancy of what dif ferent tactics might have meant had the score been only 6-2, with the Hill toppers on the 8-yard line. Undoubt edly, under these conditions, no pass would have been called. Keating prob ably would have been left in the game and given the responsibility of trying to score on straight football. But it didn’t work out that way. Anyway, the pressure was off Mary land at the time of Georgetown’s elev enth-hour passing parade. It must be assumed that Maryland was tops on Saturday. The game’s statistics and Coach Jack Hagerty of Georgetown lend credence to the as sumption. “The better team won,” admitted Hagerty, with only this qual ification: "But we weren’t as good as we were last week against N. Y. U.” In passing, it should be remarked that the game was a great exhibition of splendid sportsmanship by both sides. Earnestly, vigorously, contested, it nevertheless was free of any un toward incidents that might have been looked for with rivalry so keen. In every way, the young men on the field lived up to the high standards of the college football code. Colonials Tie Good Team. 'J'HERE seems to be no way of deter mining a mythical local champion without stirring up an argument. Not after George Washington’s tie with Arkansas at any rate. The Colonials, beaten by Alabama, Tulsa and Missis sippi, were given little chance in this game, although losing to Alabama, particularly, was no disgrace. Arkansas essentially is a passing team and the field on Saturday was muddy. But that Is to take nothing from the Colonials. Mud Is. mud and both teams must play In It. George Washington simply was as good that afternoon as a team which had beaten Central State, Texas, Southern Meth odist, Texas A. & M., and Missis sippi, a team which had tied Texas Christian, and a team which lost close games to Rice and to Baylor. There is a possibility that G. W’s game with West Virginia on Thursday will throw some light on the respective merits of Georgetown, Maryland and the Colonials. We8t Virginia was tied, 6-6, by Georgetown and Maryland turned back the Hoyas. Modem foot ball is not to be measured thusly but it probably always will-be done by some of the trade. ONE-TOUCHDOWN TEAMS Notre Dame, Northwestern Short on Scoring in Games. EVANSTON, HI. (A1).—-Northwestern and Notre Dame, who meet here today, both are operating on a one-touchdown basis. The Irish, after having defeated Drake, 21 to 0, and played a scoreless tie with Illinois, have scored one touchdown a game since then, throw ing in a touchdown against Navy. Northwestern, after having defeat ed Iowa State, 33 to 0, in its opener, has won or lost by the margin of one touchdown in each of Its succeeding games. GRTDDER IS SEA DIVER. . CHICAGO (A1).—The Chicago Bears have a deep-sea diver on the squad. Kay Bell, guard, started diving while doing dredge work at Seattle. Last summer he continued the work, off the i coast of Alaska. AHEARN PRESENTS “ALL-STAR” SHOW Glorified Prelim Fighters Meet in Three 8-Round Bouts Tonight. THREE eight-round bouts, in volving glorified preliminary fighters, will be featured to night at Turner's Arena in the first of a series of cards that have been labeled by Matchmaker Goldie Ahearn as all-star shows. Probably the most enticing of the trio lists Eddie Aleck, lanky New York lightweight, stacking up against Pete Oaliano, Baltimore veteran. Alzek, who scored a technical kayo over Billy Bullock, a local lad, in his only appearance here, is reported to be seeking his 31st consecutive vic tory. Dupre Claims Title. TTONY DUPRE, a French-Canadian featherweight who is slated to see much service here providing he shows impressively against Armando Sicilia of Chicago, is a claimant of the New England 126-pound title. His chief claim to fame is a victory over Joey Archibald some months ago. The Ray Ingram-Baby Manuel eight-rounder, like the Dupre-Sicllia argument, is a proving ground for Lou Gevinson, local belter. Ingram, as well as Dupre, has been mentioned prominently for a scrap with Lou, but Manuel, a southpaw, may erase his fond hopes. Stage Hippodrome Bout. JOHNNY QUINN and Benny Kes sler, who must have quit the circus on its last trip here, will swing in a four-rounder. Quinn recorded a kayo over Kessler last week in the best act of the season. It was funny enough to bear repeating, so hippo drome will replace fighting in this one. Steve Mamakos, a local product of amateur ranks, who is being guided carefully, clashes with Charley Rondo, Baltimore welterweight, in another four-rounder that opens the card at 8:30 o’clock.

STRAIGHT OP |THE TEE ^ By Walter McCallum ’ WASHINGTON has lots of Informal golf groups who get together from time to time to play for cute little prizes.

Those rugged characters don’t get into the swing of the game until •now blankets the courses and the wind whistles shrill tunes around the bunkers. They played yesterday—Just a few of them—but the other group of Chevy Chase members had a real tourney. This group is called the Chevy Chase Breakfast Club, and is composed of older men than the “course stormers.” LESLIE C. GARNETT, United States attorney for the District of Colum bia, has been southpawing his way around the local golf courses for a good many years. He’s just a fair golfer, one of the numerous group who ' count it a fair day when they get down around the 90-mark. Well, the estimable district attorney won him self first prize in the Breakfast Club tourney with a card of 98—11—87. With that prescience that all good lawyers have he hit the number right on the nose in the little tourney for prises put up by Ord Preston, one of the Breakfast Club group. Pour others tied for second place, and on the draw John Lewis Smith, Jr., won the second award, while third prise went to E. O. Wagenhorst. Others who tied were J. D. Rollow and William P. Meredith.

Marty knows his golf and his golfers. When Miller B. Stevinson and Donald Wood ward, former holders of the Cummings Cup, emblematic of the two-man team ihampionship of the club, won three weeks ago the right to challenge Dana Belser and Craig McKee for the title, Marty said, ‘ Bet you they don’t play it this year.” One Sunday Belser was >ut of town. Another day it rained, rhey were supposed to play yesterday, but it was a little cold and they didn't go to the post. “Ten to one they ion’t play it this year,” says Marty. JN ADDITION to his other business interests, Harvey L. Cobb, well tnown lawyer, has a part interest in a ■estaurant. Today many of Harvey’s 'riends are joshing him because he won a turkey in a tournament at Congressional yesterday. “You’ll have to slice that one thick,” they say, 'because you got it free.” Cobb shot 89 with a 16 handicap for i net of 73 to win first net prize. Other net prizes were won by D. L. Moorman, Frank E. Johnson and Harry Randall. Larry J. Bernard won the gross award with a card of 84. ALEX BAUMGARTNER is the new Rock Creek Park turkey tourney :hampion. Alex, who also plays at Endian Spring, stalked off with a big turkey when he won the final round n the first flight yesterday, beating Harry Miller on the 18th hole. The tecoftd-flight final between Harold Sowers and E. W. Loving will be played tomorrow. “BACKER-UP” KEY MAN 2oach Little Offers Bams’ Center to Prove His Point. NEW YORK, Nov. 22 OP).—Lou jittle, Columbia’s cagy coach, would •rade three “average linemen” for one ‘great backer-up” and figure he came mt ahead in the deal. A defensively great roving center, Lou said today, “would make any de ensive line look good.” To prove It, le pointed out that the might of the :urrent Fordham forward Wall—those leven blocks of granite—lies largely In ilex Wojciechowlcz, whose defensive lynamite on the roving center assign nent is the major reason there hasn’t >een a point scored through the ram ine all season. CRUISERS ARE COMET.

Armour, Metz ‘Best Dressed’ Pros—Poe ‘Best Looking Kid Prospect.’ By W. R. McCALLUM. PERSONAL nominations for tha “best” among the top-notch golf professionals of America: Best-looking and most grace ful golfer of the list—Roland Mac Kenzie of Congressional. Longest hitter of the slugging type— Jimmy Thomson. Longest hitter of the smoother swingers—Sammy Snead. Best dresser—A tough assignment, for all the boys look like walking hab erdashery advertisements nowadays, since Walter Hagen and John Farrell showed ’em how to swank around. On the more conservative side—Tommy Armour. On the 1938 models of hab erdashery—Dick Metz. Handsomest pro—A dead heat be tween Horton Smith, Jimmy Thomson and Dick Metz. It’ll take a camera to decide this finish, but if you like your man stalwart and romantic look ing, you’ll like Thomson, who happens to be the husband of Movie Star Viola Dana. Vi, by the way, has Just gotten a check from one of the more prominent monthly magazines for writing a yarn about pro golfers' wives and their ex periences around the tournament cir cuit. She couldn't write some of the more interesting stuff, but still it’s ,good. lnancro utu not. Most inspired golfer of the bunch— Tony Manero. The 1936 open champ has a way of kidding himself into hot streaks, like the finish he put on at Pinehkrst last week. He wound up 3, 3, 2, 4, against the par of 3, 5, 3. 4, and he called his shot. “I gotta get in the money, and I think I can make it,” he said. He did. Guy who needs more hard work on his game than any other topnotcher— Paul Runyan. Those tricky little cut shots and those spoon shots aren’t go ing with the wizardry of old nowadays. “'How come?” we asked Paul. “Well, you can’t give 1,200 lessons in a sum mer and keep your own game going,” he said. Best putter—It’s still Horton Smith, just as it has been for years. Denny Shute is abroad, but when they make better putting strokes Horton still will be a standout. Best-looking kid prospect^Henry Clay Poe, the lanky 22-year-old from Greensboro, N. C., who couldn’t win his State championship as an ama teur, but managed to tie for the Mid South championship in his first start as a pro, against a field of the best players in the Nation. Henry, a skin ny, serious-faced youngster, squats his 6 feet down to the ball and poles it almost as far as Thomson and Snead, with a very upright swing, getting his hands higll on the backswing. He may have been over his head at Pine hurst and then again he may Just be coming onto his real game. You never know about the youngsters. They develop very fast. Pros Save Money. Wealthiest of the touring pros—A toss-up between Horton Smith and Gene Sarazen. Either of ’em can get out of golf and have enough for a win ter in Florida and summer in New England. Not exactly millionaires, but in pretty good financial shape by their own efforts. More power to ’em. Hagen has made a million but he hasn’t put it away like Smith and Sarazen. And the best for the last. Best golfer we’ve seen in 30 years—Robert Tyre Jones, jr., who isn’t a touring pro. The Jones of the years between 1922 and 1930 was the best-scoring player the world has seen. Auctioneer’s Ax Speeds Hat Sale By the Associated Press. gPOKANE, Nov. 20—‘'Halfback’’ Pet* Christensen, the 450 pound farmer given Stanford* Tiny Thornhill as second prise in • a national coaches’ moaning con test, went over in a big way at a charity auction. He sold 350 hats—to their own ers—for $1 apiece. “How much am I offered?’’ he demanded, swinging a hat in one hand, an ax in the other. No bids. The ax fell, cleaving the hat. The remaining hats sold like helmets in China, Fourth Duckpin Win in Row Hit By Ida Simmons in Chesapeake eieciai uupatcn to mo star. Baltimore, Md., Nov. 22—Ida Simmons of Norfolk looms as one of the most sparkling sports figures In the country following her victory last night In the Chesapeake Sweepstakes at the Rec reation alleys here. To win her third straight cham pionship In this event and score her fourth consecutive sweepstakes tri umph this season the No. I ranking girl duckpin bowler of the country rallied to roll a 10-game score of 1, 235, which was worth $100 and the Mayor Jackson trophy. Her five game sets were 596 and 630. . Lorraine Gulll, Washington’s ace, and Lucy Rose of Rosslyn were among the five stars who led a record field of 68 national rollers In the first block with counts of 605 and 610, re spectively. But, in the final drive, neither could match the heavy maple pounding of the blond bowler from Norfolk. Miss Gulll, with a final block score of 608, finished second with 1,213 to collect $75. Helen Randlett of Rich mond chalking up sets of 582 and 614 came >ln third with 1,196. Her purse was $60. Mrs. Rose won $45 when her last set or 560 gave her a 1,176 total for fourth place. Georgia Hays of Washington, who recently shot a brilliant 684 at Sil ver Spring, came through with con sistent counts of 582 and 593 to take fifth money of $35. Blanche Wootton of Rosslyn and Billie Butler of Wash ington finished in the money, the for mer winning eighth place with 1,154 and the latter eleventh position with 1,136. They collected $12 and $9. Bronson Qualtes won $5 for high game of 162. Her total was 1,088.

MILLER, Jr. OW many times have you read cyclopaedia articles and won dered who the writer was? In the Encyclopaedia Britan nica there appears a splendid article on chess, giving both the historical and acro6S-the-board aspects. The man who originally wrote that article died in 1919, after serving for years as chess editor for the English newspaper, Field. In the current edi tion of the Brltannlca the original article of L. Holler has been merged with the pen efforts of L. van Vliet and G. E. Smith, present chess editor of Field. The article is a brilliant depiction of chess openings and a sound treatise with which the beginner might well fa miliarize himself before procuring the latest copy of Holler's work, “Chess," which now appears with new and modem lines of play according to the lucid insight of J. Du Mont. Da Mont's edition of Holler’s “Chess" may be obtained from George Routledge Si Sons, Ltd., 68 Carter lane, E. C. 4, London. The price: S shillings. Chess Instruction Available. ENQUIRIES invariably drift in by phone or card as to "Please, will you recommend some one who is qualified to teach me to play chess?" It seems that public lectures do not answer this demand, for many wish the privilege of personal instruction. To meet this need the services of Gen. Basil Bogoljubov, a shrewd and practical over-the-board player, will be available between the hours of 4-6 p.m. every day this week at the Social Chess Lounge, Parkslde Hotel. Beginners may arrange to play Gen. Bogoljubov either by call ing in person or dialing District 3230, during the hour* named, for an appointment. The fee? Comparatively little, for Social Chess Education has arranged with Gen. Bogoljubov for the instruc tional games to advance interest in the royal game here and to aid beginners. Instructional games are only 25 cents each for beginners. For more advanced players the fee is only 50 cents per game and if the amateur can win from the general, his fee is returned. The Social Chess Lounge, located at 1336 I street N.W., has placed its com plete facilities at the disposal of Gen. Bogoljubov that the success of the in struction-by-game method may be as sured. Make your appointment in advance if possible. Special Assembly of Divan. ^ORVAL WIGGINGTON, vice pres ^ ident of the Washington Social Chess Divan and chairman of the Membership Committee, requests that all active and associate members of the Divan attend the special session to be held tomorrow night at 8 o'clock, Parkside Hotel. This meeting is of grave im port to the welfare of the Divan. Shall the Divan continue to spon sor public chess? Organized chess? Social chess? Shall the clubroom be closed or shall the program be full speed ahead? As a follower of chess, as a mem ber of the Divan, it is vital indeed that you be present to give benefit of clergy, counsel, and express your personal opinion. The general tournament will con tinue immediately after Vice President Wigglnton has laid his cards on the table. Thanksgiving Rally.

ED BLAKENEY, crack Heurieh Brewer duckpinner, today is in the race for the glory of be ing the Capital’* leading sweepstakes winner of the season as a result of annexing the Inaugural event of the Doc Shambora Sweepstakes with a 10-game score of 1,346 at the Recreation last night. Pounding the maples for the 698 high set of the event, Blakeney, long noted for his stake rolling, came through with 648 in his last five games to win his second sweepstakes of the season and tie with Ollie Pacini w-.th two apiece. Earlier in the season he won the Pop Wolfe event. Pacini won the Dixie and Von Dreele on succes sive days a week ago. Blakeney's Average High.
