The Explosion Shot, Most Trying to All Golfers,
Can Be Mastered by Plenty of Practice
Of all the shots one faces in the
course of a golf season, I think none
is so trying as the explosion. I be
lieve most golfers feel the same way
about it, too.
An explosion shot, to become fun
damental, is one made in deep sand
where the ball lies in a heel print,
depression or is so placed that it can
not be lifted out of the bunker by be
ing hit cleanly.
In other words, an explosion shot is
one made, not by bitting the ball, but
by hitting back of it into the sand
and letting the sand raise the ball up
and onto the green.
Distance Alters Shot
The distance one hits into the sand
back of the ball varies according to
the distance one wants the ball to go.
Sometimes the lie is such that one
must shoot over a second bunker to
reach the green or, In other cases, he
may need a fairly long shot because
the cup lies across on the other side
of the green.
In that case, hit into the sand only
an inch or so back of the ball. I can
not tell you exactly how much back
of the ball you should hit. You will
have to learn to judge simply Dy go
ing out and tearing up some green
keeper’s well-smoothed trap with a
lot of practice.
All I can tell you about it is to hit

Gus Sonnenberg Takes Last
Two Falls in Title Match
STRAIGHT ARM IS USED
Colorado Man Swings Cham
pion in Air Until He Is Dizzy
to Win First Fall
Lo 6 Angeles, May 6.— (/P) —Gus I
"Dynamite” Sonnenberg, former col
lege football player, today attributed
another wrestling victory to his appli
cation of flying tackles learned on the
gridiron.
Sonnenberg, who claims the world’s I
heavyweight wrestling championship,
defeated Everett Marshall, La Junta,
Colo., two out of three falls at
Wrigley Field here last night.
Marshall’s side-stepping and
straight - arming proved a good de
fense, and he won the first fall In 21
minutes and 38 seconds with an air
plane spin.
After wrestling for 11 minutes and
55 seconds, Sonnenberg caught Mar
shall with a flying tackle and took
the second fall. Within one minute
and 22 seconds Sonnenberg’s flying
tackles had Marshall on the flow for
the third and winning tumble.

WHIP IS USED BUT LITTLE
Vsteran Gets Great Response
From Racing Fans as Well
as From His Mount
By WILLIAM BRAUCHER
The notes of the bugle sound at old
Churchill Downs. In the paddock the
jocks swing the leg on their bosses.
Down the lane from the paddock
to the track moves the prancing cav
alcade. All eyes turn to watch as the
parade comes bobbing onto the track.
A black colt, pawing and prancing,
bearing on his back a little square
headed, tight-lipped old man, bounces
through the gate. Somebody shouts,
"Oh, you Sande l” And a mlghtly
chorus of 100,000 voices takes up the
cry of tribute to one of the handiest
little riders that ever lived.
Cheering Ends at Barrier
The cheering will not stop. The
parade winds down the track and re
turns and. still the roar goes up from
the stands. The little man holds the
reins in one hand and touches his
cap. Now they have come to the
barrier and the cheer dies down.
Gallant Fox, the horse the little
man is riding, is nervous, anxious to
be away. He paws in the dirt eager
ly, throwing his head against the bit
—finally breaking through the web
bing.
At last the barrier is sprung and
they go charging down the track—
and Earl Sande is out there on Gal
lant Fox, trying to score his third
victory in the Kentucky Derby.
Doesn’t Like Whip
In the Wood Memorial recently at
Jamaica, Sande rode the Belair star
In his comeback effort—and won after
being in a pocket on the backstretch
from which it seemed the horse could
not possibly escape.
Of Gallant Fox, the mount he has
in the Derby. Sande says:
"A nice colt, a big striding fellow,
but I don't think he would stand for
much crowding. He*s temperamental,
but I have been pretty good friends
with him so far.”
Sande rarely uses the whip in a
race, preferring to “hand ride” the
hosses he is given to ride. He did
have to shake up Gallant Fbx. how
ever. to fight his way out of that
deadly’ pocket at Jamaica. It was at
the far turn.
Gallant Fox Responds
Betting Commissioner Tom Shaw
was in the club house, eagerly watch
ing every move of the colt Sande was
riding.
Someone near Shaw shouted, as
Sande began using the bat:
"He’s all through—there goes the
whip!”
But Sande uses the whip only when
they need it. The little old man was
not wrong this time, either. Gallant
Fox responded with a great bound
that took him out of the pocket and
with a clear path ahead down the
home stretch in which to try to over
take Crack Brigade.
"He can’t win slashing him like
that,” said an excited spectator. Then
Shaw spoke up.
“I’m going to do a little slashing
myself,’’ he said, and turning to his
cashier, shouted. "Cut Gallant Fox’s
price for the Derby from 8 to 1 to
4 to 1. Here comes old man Sands
on the winner of the Kentucky Der
by.”
Maybe Tom knows whereof he
speaks, at that.

SAINT ROBBED OF SHUTOUT
Mike Cvengroe, Late of Cube,
and Bryan Harriet, One-
Time Mack, Winning
By WILLIAM WEEKES
Chicago; May 6.—(A*) —A quartet of
former major league pitchers, two of
them one time New York Yankees,
are setting the hurling pace in the
American Association.
Wiley Moore, the sinker-ball expert,
and Fred Heimach, the ex-Yankees,
along with Mike Cvengroe, late of the
iChicago Cubs, and Bryan (Slim) Har
riss,'former Philadelphia Athletic, are
lat the top and appear set for per
formances which may earn them re
admittance to the majors.
Moore, with St. Paul, came up with
a four-hit game against Indianapolis
for a 4 to 1 victory, his third of the
season. He outpitched three Indian
youngsters. An error by Hopkins,
Saint third baseman, deprived Moore
of a shutout. Heimach, Toledo south
paw, pitched the Mud Hens to their
only victory of the series over the
champion Kansas City Blues, 9 to 5.
Heimach was located for 13 hits, but
he was good with men on and re
ceived great support. "Pea Ridge"
Day, the Blues’ shouting hurler, was
charged with his first defeat of the
season.
I Louisville kept pace with the climb
ing Columbus Senators by shelliiig
four Minneapolis pitchers for 21 hits
and a 15 to 2 triumph.
Columbus continued to sail along
at a swift clip, taking the final of the
series from Milwaukee, 6 to 3.

Bill to Protect Bald
JEagle May Die in
House Committee
Adkins of Illinois, Snow of
Mains and Chairman Hau-
New York City, May 6.—The bill tc
protect the bald eagle by federal leg
islation appears to be in grave dangei
of dying in tjie house committee or
agriculture. This measure, intro
duced by Senator Peter Norbeck ol
South Dakota, and Congressman Au
gust H. Andresen of Minnesota, has
recently aroused tremendous interest
among bird-lovers, conservationists
and the public generally.
It was introduced in congress Jan
8, 1930, With the official backing ol
the national committee on wild-life
legislation, which represents six large
membership, conservation, organiza
tions, including the American Fores
try association; Izaak Walton League
of America; American Game Protec
tive association; National Association
of Audubon Societies; and the two or
ganizations composed of all the state
conservation commissions of the
United States.
In speaking of the matter, Dr. T
Gilbert Pearson, president of the Na
tion Association of Audubon Societies
and chairman of the national com
mittee on wild-life legislation, said
•‘Under the skillful leadership of Sen
ator Norbeck the bill passed the sen
ate without serious opposition April 7,
1930. The trouble is in the house
committee on agriculture.” Continu
ing, he said. “The chief opposition
appears to be by Congressman Charles
Adkins of Illinois, who states that the
idea of congress passing a law to pro
tect the eagle is the biggest joke ever
brought up in congress. Donald F.
Snow, representing the fourth district
of Maine, is bitter in his opposition,
He states that he raised chickens, and
hawks catch chickens, and the eagle,
he thinks; must look like a big hawk.
Gilbert N. Haugen, chairman of the
committee, which is now holding up
the bill, has shown no enthusiasm
for advancing it to the house for a
vote. Congressman Andresen, known
as the leader in wild-life conservation
matters in the house, already has
made five unsuccessful attempts to
bring out the eagle bill. The three
congressmen just mentioned thus far
have defeated his efforts.
In conclusion. Dr. Pearson said.
