31ado Gleneajrlcs Golf Record,
but Comes From Scotland
to Turn Professional.
By KERR S. PETRIE.
When the season opens In the near
future at Baltusroi the golfers of that
organization will find awaiting them at
the first tee. and ready to show them
how, a new recruit from the professional
ranks nnd recent arrival from the land
of the 'hlstle. The newcomer Is Francis
S Gallett, who arrived oi.ly last Sunday
and already has been snapped up by
George Low, to whom It la Intended he
will act as assistant during the coming
season. Despite I ho fact he Is only 25
and that from October, 1915. until Jan
uary, 131 a, he w&s in the army he comt<
to the United States v.-ith a brilliant
reputation considering the brief time
that he has had to build upon the foun
dation of the game which he laid during
his boyhood days on the Carnoustie
links.
As will be sern. Gallett comes from the
town which in years past han given so
many golfer* to America, such men as
the Smiths, the Maidens, the Fothering
hams, the Robertsons, the Hackneys,
Ot-orge I^ow himself, as also many
others who have gained more or less
renown in the realm of the cleek. By all
?? :ounts he is one of the most brilliant
members of the Carnoustie school de
veloped In some time.
"Last summer 'F. S.' was one of
Carnoustie's summer attractions." eays'
?. writer in the Dundee Courier. "In
every game he played from May to Pep-)
tember he was followed around the |
course by hundreds of spectators. The |
slimmer of 1910 saw Francis Callett
come into his kingdom locally. The pre
vious year he had won the Dalhousle
cup and Carnegie shield, as well as hav
ing reached the semi-finals of the links
and club championships.
"During last season, however, he was
still more In the limelight. He estab
lished a n*w amateur record for the
Qlenengles course, won the Carnoustie
link* championship, won the Y. M. C. A.
rhib championship, reached the final of
the Maokny cup. and incidentally picker!
up the Ktnloch modal, gold cross, Nell- |
son and one or two minor awards.
Wnre to Kierl n* "Pro.
"Francis is a player who Is sure to
excel In professional circle?. His play Is
always Intercut tng, for he Invariably
goes for everything and takes the risk
of hazard in a delightfully sportsman
like manner. He gets long distances
with his wooden clubs, while on the
greens he is perhaps the most deadly of
the Carnoustie artisan golfers Gallett
has had a conspicuous career In the
Forfarshire seaside town. While yet
early In his teens he won the Dalhousle
cup with a handicap In the region of the
minus si* department. During the war
he saw active servlc? in France and in
the Fast In the R. A. M. C. JCarly on
his return home he was made a scratch j
itolfer nnd recently soared to the giddy ;
height* of the plus two category."
Cifllett is following in the footsteps of
"ome fine golfers and he will no d all
of his native ability plus some of the
? Us that h<? Is yet to acquire on this,
side of the Atlantic to catch up **ltji]
certain other Carnoustie lads and stRy
there. However, that Gleneagles record
would seem to Indicate that, he has It In
him to cllmh high on the ladder of fame.
Sot only so. hut there In still another
measure which Americans caji apply to
Gallett's prowess. In 1919, which would
set the date at only a few months after
his return from active service, he de
feated Laurence Auchterlonle on the
latter's home links of St. Andrews In '
the annual "derby" between Carnoustie
and St Andrews.
Auchterlonle won the American open
championship at Garden City in 1902
by ale, strokes with a score of 307 and
Record Trip for
Small Cabin Cruiser
DETROIT, Mich.. March 24.?
With his small cabin cruiser
Gar Jr. 2d, Gar Wood,
holder of most of the world's Hpeed
boat records, will soon attempt a
record breaking trip from Miami,
Fla., to New York along the Atlan
tic coast, according to word received
here from Florida to-day. Unless
present plans miscarry the trip will
be mads May 1 or shortly thereafter.
Gar. Jr., 2d. built by Wood for
rou^h weather speeding, developed a
maximum speed of forty-three miles
an hour in the Wood trophy event
here last summer. It was shipped to
Miami. Fla., early last winter and
has won a number of long distance
speed races in Southern waters.
although that would seem to put Luarie
a little beyond the stage of callow youth
he still swings a mighty driver and
wields a crafty mashle and altogether
is yet a power in the land of his fathers,
as Jock Hutchison, the American pro
fessional champion, is ready to attest.
And a? to Gnllett's ability to rise to
gr. nt thing*, there Is the further com
ment of one who has followed the game
at close range since before It wan intro
<Uiced Into America, this being to the
effect thnt "no more brilliant golfer has
severed his connection with the Car
noustie Club than tho Glvneagles ama
teur record holder."
Him n Fine, K.nny Style.
Still another authority wrote of Gallett
at his dei>arture from tho fumous links
on the North Rea: "Undoubtedly young
Gallett is a coming champion. He has
a fine style which appeals to one for
its easiness. Without any apparent ef
fort he drives exceptionally long balls
from the tee. In approaching he is
daring almost to recklessness, while on
the green he never hesitates. He is
overflowing with confidence, a splendid
specimen of the type of golfer who plays
besi when he looks like being beaten. A
game Is never lost with Francis Gallett
until the last putt If holed. Crowds
have no effect on this clever young
Unksman, for he seems utterly nerveless.
To some players a big gallery is a tre-i
mendoua handicap, but it never seems
to cost F. S. Gallett a thought."
A warm welcome awaits Gallett at
Baltusrol and In the several tournaments
to which he doubtless will be Introduced
during the coming season. Golfers here
would have been still more Interested if
Francis had brought along with him his
brother Jim, for this lad is one of the
most remarkable men playlnff the game.
As the result of having his kneecap
striasheil by a golf hall when he was a
little caddie boy, Jim Gallett was so
crippled that he had to have recourse to
a wooden support extended from the
lenea, his right leg being In consequence
bent under him. Despite this tremendous
handicap Jim Gallett. like his younger
brother, rose to be king of the Carnou
stie links and to be generally feared In
amateur tournament play.
Unable to get his shoulder as clone to
the ball as his rival* this wonder uses
an extra long club that allows him a
long sweep beyond the impediment Like
Louis Martuccl with his one hand. Jim
Gallett would be an oddity to American
llnksmen. Particularly would he interest
those who believe during the perform
ance of the stroke It Is necessary to
poise Just so on the right foot. In the
nature of things there Is no heel and toe
action of the right foot with James
Gallett. hut he makes up for this lack
by perfect body balance and timing of
the stroke.
POGGENBURG CTJP GAMES.
In tho continuation of the handicap
amateur balkllno tournament for the
poggenburg cup In the national Recrea
tion in Brooklyn last night, J. I>angdon,
Julian Klce and F. Boyd were returned

Boxing Patrons Roused
by Wilson-CJDoivd Affair
Opinion Quite General That
Drastic Action Js
Necessary.
( II AIIIiES F. M \ Til ISON.
The announcement that Mike O'Dowd
was in hospital recovering from an
operation for> hernia due to foul blows
he received in his contest with Johnny
W llson caused a sensation in boxing
clreiis. Among those >vlio patronise
ring entertainments the opinion wan
pi-r.T-11 thf.t ))?? RoxIr~ ?v,.v, n'.-i
would be compelled to take action In the
Uremia.- ?r u.c a.ou i.oi.iu ...Her
a i Ioin slump.
The apparent policy of the Boxing
Commission In dealing out .severe pun
ishment to small fry offenders and per
mitting important culprits to violate
cardinal rules with impunity was
strongly censured. A continuance of
tliis policy, it Is held, cannot fail to
produce a loss of confidence In the
supporters of the pastime.
The fact that the Boxing Commission
physician certified previous to the con
test that O'Dowd was In perfect physi
cal condition leaves no loophole for cs
eape from the conviction that Wilson's
low blows did the damage.
The suggestion that blows that landed
above the belt could have caused the
injury from which O'Dowd suffers Is too
childish for an Instant's consideration.
Had Wilson struck one low blow and
then raised his aim. as he was in
structed to do by the referee, it might
have been attributed to accident. But
when Wilson continued to hit the un
fortunate O'Dowd below the belt round
after round, without the slightest re
monstrance from the referee, the affair
took on a serious aspect. One reputable
eye witness counted a dozen foul blows.
There never was any doubt that
O'Dowd was outpointing the title holder,
and it appears the Bofctonlan felt that
In order to retain his championship he
would be compelled to apply weakening
blows tc the fighting Irishman.
It is noteworthy thgt in the Boston
contest ? Wilson failed signally to make
any Impression on O'Dowd, and while
Wilson received the decision on points
the New Yorker was fighting valiantly 1
at the sound of the final gong.
Expression of opinion by boxing en
thusiasts as to the solution of the af
fair was to the effect:
Reversal of the action of J mice
Shorten and Keferee McAvoy giving
derision to Wilson.
Revocation of the licenses of Mc
Avoy and Shorten.
Indefinite suspension of Wilson for
his foul tactics.
As Rick&rd has paid Wilson the
amount guaranteed to him. It Is too late
for the commission to do anything In
that direction, although it is customary
in cases of suspension of Insignificant
violators of the rules to withhold the
compensation of the offenders.
Pete Herman scored a comparatively
easy victory over Jimmy Wilde in Lon
don and has determined to go across
the pond for another victim. This is
Jim Higgins, the bantam champion of
Great Britain, and Herman announces
he will sail next month in quest of a
bout with Higgins.
As Wilde lias signed for a match with
Higgins for the bantam title, it may be
that Herman will have to get another
match with the midget in order to corral
the bantam honors.
All this activity on the part of Her
man has to do with a return match
with Joe Lynch for the world's bantam
championship. In addition to hia Eng
lish invasion, Herman plans to meet
every high class bantam in America and
thus work his way up to a match with
Lynch.
John Pesek, the Nebraska Tiger, who
is matched to meet the world's cham
pion on April 4 at the Seventy-first
Regiment Armory, wants the followers
of wrestling to know that It was not hia
suggestion that the head lock was pro
hibited. Pesek is satisfied he will be
nble to hold his own with Lewis even if
the latter uses hi? crushing hold, and is
figuring upon demanding another match
with Lewla in which the latter can usa
his head lock.
The Pennsylvania House of Repre
sentatives yesterday passed a bill pro
viding for a State boxing commission.
Tiie meaaune now goes to the Senate.
Strnngler Lewis, the world's wrestling
champion, purchased an aeroplane at
Wichita Falls, Kan., last week and Is
lenrnlng how to manage the machine.
Ijewls has an engagement to wrestle
John I'esek at the Seventy-first Regi
ment Armory on April 4. Under the
agreement Lewis will not use the head
lock.

PETE HERMAN STOPS
ADAMS IN THE FIRST
Former Champion Hatters
Down the Chicago Bantam
in ,lijr Time.
My CHARLES K. SIATHI80X.
When Pete Herman held the tide of
world's bantam champion he usually
fought like a man determined to stay
the limit. Since losing the honors of
the class to Joe Lynch, Herman has
fought like a real champion. He scored
a rjuick victory last night at the Cen- 1
tral Manhattan Sporting Club over j
Georgle Adams of Chicago, a -youngster
with an excellent reputation. Herman
stopped Adams In the first round of the {
bout, the Chicagoan lasting 2 minutes |
and 30 seconds.
Herman did more lighting during the
round than he had been accustomed to
do In ten rounds, and he finished Adams
with a cyclonic rush and a shower of
heavy blows that made the former title
holder look like a Terry MoGovern.
The bell had barely sounded for the
first round when Herman pounced on his j
opponent and peppered him with hard i
smashes to the body and the Jaw. 1
Adams was taken by surprise and could
do little save cover and run. Herman
pursued the Chicago boy, feinted him
into raising his guard to protect his jaw
and then .shot a left hook to the pit of
the stomach.
Adams crumpled and sank to the floor,
where ho remained till the count of
nine. On regaining his feet, Adams,
who was shaky on his legs, sought to
get out of range, but Herman rained
blows on body and Jaw and beat the
Chicagoan to the floor. This time
Adams never moved when the referee
said "ten."
Herman's vigorous ring tactics are the
result of a determination to force Joe
Lynch into a return match, and if the ,
Crescent City boy, who but a few weeks i
ago stopped Jimmy Wilde in seventeen
rounds, continues at his present rate
of progress he can hardly fall to get
a chance to regain the title.
Jack Stone, the hard hitting middle
weight that Charlie Rose has been
grooming, came to grief when he faced
Angle Ratner, a veteran boxer and
crafty ring general.
Stone tried for ten rounds to get a
right hand smash on Ratner's Jaw and
failed. During this time Ratner was
Jabbing Stone In the face and hooking
him In the body, while outboxing and
out-thinking the youngster by a wide
margin.
Ratner won the contest very handily
and never whs In danger at any stage
of the combat. Stone is a strong chap.
proved he could take a punch and still
fight with vigor, but he needs consider
able Instruction in ring tactics. With
experience and schooling Stone may
develop into a dangerous candidate for
the honors of the class.
In the six round bouts Pete Slane
received the award of the Judges over
Joe Dundee and Willie Morris and Artie
Pierce boxed a draw.
G ART IN WINS THREE
BOUTS IN A ROW
Philadelphia, March iM.?Dan Gar
tin of the Meadowbrook Club, Middle
