Strong Organization to Accelerate D. C. Horseshoe-Hurling Boom
FLIPPERS' PARLEY
A. A. U. Affiliation Among
Proposals—Star Tourney
to Climax Season.
Already one of the Capital’s most
popular sports, horseshoe pitching, is
In for a further boom, it was prom
ised today with the first steps taken
to put the game on a firmly organized
basis.
On June 1, a week from Wednes
day, leaders of the sport in Washing
ton, Maryland and Virginia will
gather at The Star sports department
to effect an organization and lay out
a stiff campaign of competition to last
through the fall.
Climaxing the season will be the
•tenth annual Evening Star cham
pionships. to be held in August.
Plan to Consolidate.
At an informal meeting last week,
presided over by Charles A. Fort,
president of the District Horseshoe
Pitchers’ Association and Washington's
first official ringer flipping champion,
plans were put forth to consolidate
the horseshoe pitchers of the Capital
proper and nearby counties of Mary
land and Virginia.
Affiliation with the A. A. U. will
be discussed at the meeting. The
management of The Star tournament
eeveral years ago strongly urged na
tional officials of the A. A. U. to look
into the horseshoe field and later,
with R. B. Howard of London. Ohio,
national ’ czar” of the game, backing
up the proposal, the A. A. U., in its
1936 convention, took the sport under
Its wing.
A. A. U. What Doctor Ordered.
Several national organizations of
horseshoe pitchers have functioned
from time to time, but never pos
sessed cohesiveness enough to be more
than moderately effective. With the
help of the vast and highly efficient
structure of the A. A. U., the game
should move to a much higher plane.
Representatives of the A. A. U.
and the Municipal Playground De
partment have been invited to attend
the June 1 meeting. The Playground
Department has provided nearly all
the facilities for the staging of The
Star tournament and the enterprising
co-operation of Miss Sybil Baker, su
pervisor. and Richard S. Tennyson,
assistant supervisor, have been of
inestimable value in furthering the
eport.
"It is our plan," said Miss Baker
today, "not only to give as much 1
help to this splendid sport as in the
past, but even more, if it is within i
our means."

King of Sheet Shooters Set
For Title Defense in Annual
North-South Contests Here
FRANK R. KELLY.
Frank R. Kelly of West Orange.
N. J., rated the greatest skeet shot
of the day and possibly since the
beginning of the game 11 years ago,
and who for the third successive
year is captain of the all-America
team, will defend two of his major
championships here June 4 and 5 at
the fifth annual North-South shoot
of the National Capital Skeet Club.
The North-South shoot is one of the
most important events on the skeet
calendar, being preceded only by the
Great Eastern Championship, held in
Bridgeport, and the National Cham
pionships, to be held this year at
Tulsa, Okla., in September. The shoot
here will have particular significance
for Kelly, as it was at the National
Capital Club in 1934 that he won
hB first major championship, the all
bore title, with a score of 98 out of 100.
Defends 20-Gauge Title.
This year Kelley will defend the
North-South 20-gauge championship,
which he first won in 1935 and again
last year with a 96, and the all-bore
championship which he took again
last year when he missed a perfect
score by only one bird.
As captain of the all-America
team for the third straight year, he is
Straight Off the Tee
By WALTER McCALLUM.
She hasn't been chosen for the Curtis Cup team, but she will be before
she hangs up her clubs. She hasn't won the women's national championship,
but she may before she retires from competition. Today Helen Dettweiler,
the blond girl from Congressional, is at the age of 23 years the finest feminine
golfer ever developed around the Capital, the one*rompetitor from Wash
ington who has a chance to get somewhere in national golf. You don't need
any more evidence than to look over the way she has been playing this
spring to know that Helen is a much improved golfer over the somewhat
haphazard and jumpy player of last^
year—and previous years. Today the
Dettweiler girl is sure of herself and
her shots. She is definitely top-notch
material, in any gathering of ranking
stars.
Nor do you need the evidence sup
plied by that record-shattering, under
par-round of 77 she nonchalantly
handed in yesterday at Elkridge to win
the qualifying round in the Maryland
State women's championship. You
cmly need to know how it was done,
and to note the absence of bad spots
cm the smooth card the Congressional j
blond turned in. Helen has gone far I
from the awkward, shy, powerful
hitting kid of 1931, who was runner
up to Mrs. J. Marvin Haynes for the
District women's championship a lit
tle more than a year after she took
up the game. Today she has even
more power than she needs, but she
also has the finesse needed to score.
She would be a worthy ad
dition to any Curtis Cup team.
For two or three years, during the
time she was working—and working
hard—to get her game under control,
she had one bad fault. She kenw it
herself, and she worked until she con
quered it. It was the fault of so many
long hitters; that of hitting from the
top before getting set for the down
swing. That was the cause of many of
Helen's links failures; that and bad
putting. But that is behind her now.
She waits for the club head. And,
as for putting. “Wiffy Cox finally
got me stroking that ball. I feel I
can hole every putt that comes along,"
she says.
Game Didn't Come Easy.
But good golf hasn't come the
easy way for Helen Dettw'eiler. She
achieved it the hard way—by hard
work, after making up her mind she
was going to be a good golfer. Blessed
at the outset with strong wrists and
arms and a sturdy body, she spent
years learning to control her power.
She has it now. Last year she set a
record of 74 for the Beaver Dam
course. This year two course records
• have fallen to her blazing clubs—a
^78 at Washington in the Miller Me
tmorial tourney, and the 77 she turned
,'ln yesterday. More will come, for.
■ Helen is improving.
> She is a much better golfer
• today than she was last year.

A winter in Augusta, with ample
opportunity for practice has set her
in the right groove. Helen has had
unusual opportunities, to be sure. The
chance to be with Babe Didrikson on
her distance-eating jaunts from golf
spot to golf spot, for example. The
chance to play th3 Southern circuit,
and other opportunities which many
girls do not have. But she made the
most of them. Helen Dettweiler comes !
pretty near to being a really great i
player as she may be one day. Over a
soggy course she won the medal in the
State championship by seven shots.
Only the good ones do that. Here is
how her card read, against par for

The 6 at the first hole came from

Would Aid Open Show Were
Former Champs Let in
Sans Qualifying.
' By WALTER MrCALLUM,
With sectional qualifying rounds for
the national open golf champoinship
coming up again a week from today
at 26 spots throughout the land, the
United States Golf Association again
is on the spot for its failure to qualify
automatically former open champions.
Year after year the pros of the land
ask for automatic qualification of the ]
men who have won the title in past
years, and as consistently the U. S.
G. A. does nothing about it. .
Fred ^IcLeod. the Columbia Coun
try Club pro. who won the open title
in 1908, would be one of the few re
maining old-timers who would qual
ify under the suggested arrangement.
The pros ask: “'Why. if the U. S. G. A.
invites all former amateur champions
to compete in the amateur champion
ship without qualification, does it not
do the same for the open?”
Would Boost Galleries.’
There Is considerable merit to It,
too, when you consider that the U. 8.
G. A. not only would be making a
good gesture, but also would let in
some of the older boys who haven’t a
chance to win. but would be good
gallery attractions. Fred will attempt
to qualify at Indian Spring on May 31.
but it isn't likely he will be among
the four or five men to make the
i grade. One of the high spots of the
sectional rounds will be Walter Ha
gen's attempt to qualify at San Fran
cisco.
When you boil the thing down there
aren't many former champions who
would be eligible. Bob Jones won four
opens, but he doesn't play any more.
| Off-hand, there would be McLeod,
Francis Ouimet, Hagen, Jerry Travers.
Jim Barnes, Gene Sarazen, Tommy
Armour. John Farrell. Sam Parks.
Tony Manero and Billy Burke. That
isn’t any top-heavy list to include in
the championship and probably half
of them would qualify, anyway. Mc
Leod would be the oldest of the group
and, good as he is, he wouldn't have
a chance to grab the croi^n.
Veterans Can't Stand Pace.
The procession has gone past
Freddy, and the pace is too fast for
the oider men. Hagen, Manero and
Armour might be championship pos
sibilities. but when you look over the
record you have to admit that cooper,
Thomson, Guldahl, Snead. Demaret.
Ghezzi, Dudley, Hiries. LafToon and
a few others are the hot shots of 1938.
The old boys simply can’t stay along
with the pace. But they would be
gallery attractions, and of them all
Fred McLeod, the champion of 30
years back, wouldn't be the least.
There is one gesture the U. 8. G. A.
well could make without hurting the
championship. They could let in the
former champions without the quali
fying ordeal.
HOYA SOPHS TO HURL

Sophomore pitchers will get their
rhance for Joe Judge's Georgetown

on the Hilltop’ diamond tomorrow
against Western Maryland. Beaten in
three of their last four starts, the
Hoyas are itching to get at the Terrors
whom they walloped last year by a

NO MAJOR CRIN
Cooper Limited to Being
Low Golf Scorer and
Best Coin Getter.
Golf’s mechanical man who has yet
to win a national championship is so
far out in front of the individual scor
ing averages and the chase for gold
that if he keeps on going hell win
the Vardon Scoring Trophy and lead
in the gold chase by the biggest margin
any pro ever has piled up.
Any way you look at the thing, by
averages, by shotmaking ability or
by money won, Harry Cooper is the
marvel of modem golf. He's not only
a marvel as a shotmaker and a
scorer but he's a marvel at re
maining behind the eight ball where
major championships are concerned.
Any other guy with the same twist
for stroking a ball and the same me
chanical genius would have won half
a dozen national championships, but
Harry's thinning hatch still lacks a
national crown.
Figures Show His Skill.
It’s been 11 years ago that he came
closest to grabbing the National Open,
and probably his best years are be
hind him, but he still can stroke that
ball. You don't have to go farther
than the scoring and money-winning
averages to realize that.
Bob Harlow got in the habit of com
piling golf averages when he was
tournament manager for the P. O. A.
He can^ get out of the habit, for he's
Just released the latest mathematical
dope on the top pros of the land. It
shows Cooper out in front both In
scoring and In coin-grabbing. The
Texas Tornado has played 48 tourna
ment rounds since January 1, with an
average of 70 97. He has won $4,498.33.
Ralph Guldahl, the National Open
king, who has played only 20 tour
nament rounds over the same period,
has .a scoring average of 71.65, but
has won only $1,750 in coin. Mac
Smith, the old Carnoustie favorite,
played in only one tournament—the
Los Angeles open—fou an average of
71 strokes, but he doesn't figure any
where near the consistency of Coo
per with 48 rounds uf tournament golf
behind him.
Wiffy Cox, the only Washington
man who figures in the averages,
played 13 rounds for an average of
74 15 strokes to the round and won
$180.
Fail to Tell lull Story. .
The bare figures give you an idea
of how good Cooper is, bi t they don’t
tell the real story any more than Jce
Di Maggio's batting averages tell of
how he can relay those long flies to
the catcher with a bulletlike peg to
the plate.
Cooper today is the best golfer in
the United States, according to the
averages. But he never has won the
National, and he may be stymied until
he comes to the end of his competitive
string. Which prrvees something—
mavbe that golf is a screwy game
after all. —'W. R. McC.

Troon Course Takes Courage,
Superhuman Golf, but Goodman
Lauds It While Others Cuss
By SCOTTY RESTON.
Associated Press Sports Writer.
TROON, Scotland, May 24.—Johnny
Goodman says Troon Is the finest
course on the Scottish coast. Hal
Pierce, manager of the United States
Walker Cup team and vice president
of the United States Golf Association,
says "it's tougher than Pine Valley”
the (sandy New Jersey course where
international matches have been
played). A lot of other people say
things about it that can’t be printed.
One thing's certain—whoever wins
the British amateur on it this week
will have to be accurate, rainproof,
windproof and full of courage.
Laid out on a sandy arm of land
extending into the Fjrth of Clyde, the
Troon course is one vast, windy chess
board where stiff penalties punish
every wrong move.
High Best Is Rough.
There is nothing like it in the
United States. For example, bent
grass, which is used mainly for put
ting greens in America is the rough
here, and it grows waist high Just oil
the fairway.
Fairways, which are flat in America,
roll and dip here on the theory that
championship players should be able
to hit their shots from any stance.
And the greens, w’hich tilt to face the
American player, are flat here, some
times blind, and always glass fast.
Willie Ferguson, the Troon green
keeper. explains:
“The test o’ Troon is the middle six
holes. If ye can go ’round the bend’
o’ these six ye're pretty good."
The course, as he says, is divided into
three entirely different sections. The
first six go almost due south within a
good slice of the sea. Generally they
are played into a strong southwesterly
wind, but recently a wind has been
blowing from the east and any shot
sliced with the wind ends in the sea.
Course Goes Around Bend.
The middle six go “round the bend"
—that Is, holes 7. 8 and 9 continue
along the shore, and 10, 11 and 12 turn
and come back Inland.
Probably the three finest holes on
the course are In these six. They are
the sixth, the famous "postage stamp"
eighth and the tenth.
The sixth Is 580 yards long. The
drive must be hit to the left of a 40
yard fairway, and this must be fol
lowed by another full wood to the right
of the fairway. Two perfect shots will
put you on the edge of a great natural
gully, 40 feet deep, 75 yards long, as
wide as the fairway and full of waving
bent and gorse. The third shot is
about a spade across the gully to a
plateau green.
Eighth Is "Wee Divil.”
"Postage stamps,” the eighth, is the
pride of Troon. Natives call it "The
Wee Divil.” It is only 130 yards long,
downhill, and it looks as if you could
kick the ball on the green. But the
green nestles right into a sand dune.
Sand surrounds it. It always is played
with or against or in the middle of
gusting wind. And it is a matter of
some local pride that Gene Sarazen
took 11 or 13 there in the 1923 cham
pionship. The figures vary with the
story-teller.
“Sand-hills,” the tenth, is right out
of a dub's nightmare. One hundred
yards in front of the tee a sand dune
60 feet stands up with a direction
flag on top of it. The face of this dune
has been sliced away by the wind, and
forms a perfect sheer bunker. Most
players use an iron or a spoon from
the tee.
The Americans in this tournament
swing the club6 better than the British
boys, but technically they must change
many of their shots, and their strategy
must be changed completely. The
driver is the most dangerous club in
the bag on this course. The shots must
be hit to a spot and not lashed for dis
tance. It is significant that the west
of Scotland players many times use
irons and lofted woods from the tee.
Capital Pros Present Hints
On Judging of Golf Distance
'Any time you play a strange golf
course you probably have trouble
judging distance, but you can help;
yourself to a better score and a better
time if j*>u use a couple of aids to j
judgment of distance which two of our
better pros employ. Usually most errors
in judgment are made on the short ;
side by underplaying the shot or
taking a club too short, but strange ;
terrain and putting greens that are !
not clearly defined confuse the average
golfer when he gets off his home lay
out.
They can help their scores and
themselves, says George DifTenbaugh,
by playing for the bunting on the pole
instead of the cup Itself.
“Most people, when they get on a
strange course, leave themselves short
of the green on their second shots •or
shots that are supposed to reach the
green. That’s because they play for
the cup. If they would try to hit the
flag itself instead of playing for the
base of the flagstaff they’d achieve
better results and they'd have more
putts for birdies. I have a lot of
trouble on a strange course judging
distance, but if I try to hit the bunting
on the flag I find I usually can get the
ball up.”
Takes Look at Terrain.
Dave Thomson, Washington Golf
and Country Club pro, looks over the
terrain surrounding the green before
he plays his shot to the green.
"Most modern courses have a bunker
or a strip of sand somewhere near the
green.” says Dave. I find that this
stands out in the eye-pirture of the
shot more than the flag or the green
itself. If we can form a picture of
the shot by concentrating for distance
on a bunker or a mound or some defi
nite physical factor we can get closer
to the pin.”
Both George and Dave believe that
the eye can accustom itself to judging
distance only if you play a lot of
strange golf courses, but they agree
that most golfers make errors on the
short side on layouts with which they
are not familiar. The main idea, both
of them point out, is to be "up," on the
theory that even if you knock the
ball over the green it's just as easy to
chip back from behind the green as
to chip from in front. And golf courses,
as they are built nowadays, have little
trouble behind the putting greens.
Most of the trouble is in front.

Vets Fine Shotmakers, but
Pros Now Score Better,
Barnett Claims.
The present crop or winning golf
pros may not be the finest-looking
shotmakers the world has seen, but
they are the most effective scorers.
Shot for shot they may not be the
equal of the masters of 20 years back,
but they can get the ball in the hole
in fewer strokes than the old masters.
So thinks Bob Barnett, the pro at
Chevy Chase, who has played with 'em
all and who, two decades ago, was
one of the tournament winners him
self around Philadelphia, which then
was one of the hot golf spots of the
country.
“We old-timers have had to re
arrange our ideas of the game,” savs
Bob. "We've had to forget shotmak

concentrate on getting that ball In the
cup in the fewest possible number of
strokes. And don't think there isn't a

self that a lot of the top men of the
game today could compare with Var
don and Johnny McDermott, and Fred
McLeod and Jim Barnes and some
of the best of 20 years ago. But
they score better. And why? Bc
j cause they figure more on results
nowadays than on mere shotmaking
and they also are keener around the
greens, in the scoring area.
“If they miss the green they still get
a par because they can chip so well.
And if they get in a bunker they *
! whack it out with the wedge and hole
j the putt. Yep, the old game has
i changed around—plenty—in my time.''
And Bob predicts further changes
and better scoring. “I wouldn't be
surprised to see some hot fellow get
around in the high 50s some day
soon,” he said. “It's possible. The
clubs and the ball have been so im
proved, the golf courses are being
made easier and everything points to
lower scoring.
New Lot Making Game Easy.
*T don't mean that we have become
a Nation of 'scramblers' to a score,
but there's no doubt that the boys
are scoring better and they aren't
the shotmaking masters the older
crowd were.
“Why it’s a treat to play with
Freddie McLeod. He plays shots these
modem masters don't know anything
about. He can take a 2 iron and play
shots the modern winners wouldn't
think of trying.
"But I guess it's all for the best.
They really are making this game easy.
The only angle they haven't con
quered is the putting.”

In this poll hundreds of owners of
low-priced trucks were asked to
estimate prices of the low-priced
