SMITH ELIMINATED AS DIEGEL
SMASHES RECORD IN PRO MEET

LOS ANOELES, Dec. 4—<*>—Hor
ton Smith, 21-year-old pride of the
Missouri Ozarks. today was listed
among the missing as sixteen survl
vers in the professional golfer's as
sociation championship went into
their second round of match play.
The superb drives and putts of
Oraig Wood, youthful Long Island,
N. Y., professional, eliminated one
of the favorites in the first round
of match play yesterday.
Leo Dlegel. defending champion,
turned in a 64 for his morning eight
een, a new competitive course re
cord and a good start on an advan
tage which enabled him to oust P.
O. Hart, Wheeling W. Va., 10 and 9.
Hag Comes Bark
No less outstanding was the rous
ing comeback of Walter Hagen. Ap
parently unmindful of the trouble
some qualifying round Monday
which saw him stumble almost into
elimination, the five-time winner of
the P. G A. event ended his match
with Bob Shave, of Aurora, Ohio, on
the twenty-eight green 9 and 8. Just
to prove that the course, which saw
him medal a 149 on opening day,
held no power over him, the great
“Hag" played the first eighteen in
five under par, 66.
But it was Wood's victory over
Smith which supplied the greatest
upset in a duel which went to the
thirty-seventh green before a birdie
three forced the Joplin, Mo, pro
fessional into defeat.
Among the chosen sixteen, eight of
whom faced elimination today, was
Fred Morrison, medalist. The Los
Angeles professional fought an up
hill battle before winning 5 and 4
from Joe Kirdwood, trick shot artist
from Philadelphia. A former open
champion. Gene Sarazen, Fresh Mea
dow. N. Y., stood in Morrison s path
today.
By coincidence, Hagen Mehlhorn.
New York, and Henry Cuici, Mill
River. Conn.,—the trio which was
forced into a twilight series to earn
the right to enter yesterday's play
survived their matches.

Good Record
When Brownsville's vaunted
Eagles meet the Port Arthur ag

they will meet a team that is vast

played so far this season. Al
though the Jackets won the dl6trict
seven title by the defeat of John
H. Reagan at the hands of 8am
Houston, they have gone through
the season with an uncrossed goal
line and are by far the strongest
aggregation in a district chuck full
of hard driving cubs. The only
mark against a perfect record was
a half game charged against them
