Success Again Assured
for Ryder Cup Match
as Leaders S*art Plans
Ryder Cup time is approaching. As you probably know, the
big evert, which Detroit has taken over as its owm, will be
played at Oakland Hills, July 18-19. And what’s most important,
the proceed? will go to the American Red Croas.
That was a wow of a meeting held last night at Oakland
Hills, the first general meeting in connection with the coming
match. J. Russell Gnau, Walter
Hagen and Freddy Corcoran, the
PGA man. who each year give so
mnch of their time and thought
to it, were there and outlined
thfc progress already made to
Oakland Hills officials who now
will take over.
The appointment of John
P. O’Hara as general chairman
by M. M. Burgess, Oakland Hills
president, was a popular one.
All are agreed that with him in
charge the success of the match
is assured. He’s one of those
men who know how to get
things done.
Has Capable Helper
Like the other newspaper
boys 1 was delighted to hear
that O'Hara’s chief assistant
will be Harry Taylor, who can
do everything from serving as
cheer leader to leading in com
munity singing. I’m betting that
the O’Hara-Taylor duo and all
those other wonderful Oakland
Hills members won’t let the Red
Cross down—that they’ll make
the match a huge success.
Everybody got a bang out
of the way O’Hara led up to his
introduction of the Haig, who
certainly has his heart and soul
in this match.
Back in 1909, O’Hara was a visitor at the Rochester (N. Y.)
Country Club and was being made acquainted with persons around
the club. Finally he and his friend came up to a skinny young
ster who had stopped swinging a club to greet them.
“And. of course, yon know Walter Hagen,” said O’Hara's
friend in introducing him to the youngster.
“That waa SS years ago,” O’Hara said last night, “but I
know no better way to present good old Walter to you.”
“Of course, you all know Walter Hagen.”
Veteran Star Is Given Great Ovation
They did. The Haig received a fine ovation from the mem
bers of the club which he served as its first professional.
* That’s all for now about the Ryder Cup match, but you’ll be
reading a lot about it in this column from time to time. It’s for
a great cause. The tickets will be on sale pretty soon, so pre
pare to buy yours at the earliest opportunity.
* * This is as good a time as any to put in a few boosts for
gdlf, a game which provides recreation and exercises for thous
ands of Detroiters.
These are trying times for golf, just as they are for other
sports. But to the credit of the game and its leaders it must
be reported that it is carrying on real well, everything considered.
Also, as our good friend A 1 Watroua has said, there’ll always
be golf. A 1 likes to recall how years ago, when there weren’t
many automobiles around, almost as much golf was played on
thfe courses in New York as now.
“They always found a way to get to the clubs then”
Watroua saya, “and I’m sure we’ll do the same no matter what
Matches Contribute to War Agencies
Golfers are leaving nothing undone to support the various
agencies. Exhibition matches and tournaments are held
weekly and while in some cases comparatively small Bums are
realized, put all this money together over the season and It will
amount to a considerable figure.
I have noticed that the MGA courses have designated certain
traps as USO traps. A visit to each trap coats a golfer 10 cents.
When these dimes begin rolling in you can bet a worthwhile
{mount will be made available for the USO. Members of some of
the fearless foursomes at private clubs charge each other as
tuuch as 25 cents for a trapped shot or one into a water hazard.
More money for the USO, Red Cross or Navy Relief.
Many of Detroit’s golf stars, fellows like Willie Turnesa,
Bob Babbiah, Eddie Kirk and Tommy Sheehan, now are in the
armed forces. But a new and younger group has come along to
carry on while they are away. As a result competition appears
as spirited as ever and we still read about those scores in the
low 70’s.
The coming of Jimmy Demaret to Plum Hollow has done
a lot for golf here. A likeable fellow and a great golfer, De
troiters take pride in the fine showings he is making in the major
tburnaments. A Demaret victory in the Hale America this
week-end would be a popular one here. All his fellow Detroit
proa, who are among the finest sportsmen you’ll find any place
are puHling for him. Like every one here, we wish him the best
of luck In the Hale America.

Oakland Mills
Pair Have 75,
Win by Stroke
The Oakland Hills combine of
Margaret Russell and Al Watrous
continues tops in the pro-ladies’
golf competitions here, but their
rivals are pressing them.
This was shown yesterday at
Bloomfield Hills, when, although
they had low gross of 75 in an al
ternate stroke, selective drive
event they finished first by the
skimpy margin of a single stroke.
Little Faust Bianco, Joe Bel
forc s assistant at Detroit Country
Club, and Mrs. William J. Ches
brough came in second with 76.
And only one stroke back of them
were Belfore and Mrs. S. R. Liv
ingstone with 77. Completing the
lineup under 80 were Dick For
rester of Stonycroft and Mrs. C. E.
Strieker, who had 79.
Prizes were awarded on a handi
cap basis and Bianco and Mrs.
Chesbrough led with a net of 73
as a result of their three-stroke
handicap. The Watrous-Russell
and Belfore-Livingstone pairs tied
with nets of 74.
Mrs. J. H. Bradley, who paired
with Lou Nash, Jimmy Demaret’s
assistant at Plum Hollow, featured
by sinking three putts of 25 feet
as they clicked with 83-3—Bo. Mrs.
L. P. Dodd sank a chip shot on the

finished with 81-5—76.

the game, the Tiger manager’s
third banishment in a score of
years. And when Baker protests,
there must be reason for com
plaint. But the protest was just
as successful as other such com
plaints—it got Baker and the rest
of the angry Tigers nowhere.
Because of the Boston sweep,
the Tigers were dropped into
fourth place, one full game be

of the Tigers three games are the

Barney McCosky, who suffered a

ization. He praised the Oakland

among the most successful ever
staged from every angle.

tator’s standpoint, and. like Cor
coran and Hagen, reported that all
the stars were eager to return.
Among those introduced were
