Jan 4 British golfers fear a formidable American lnYa- sion this year. American golf en thusiasts are beginning to raise a fund to send 10 American amateur and 10 American professional golfers to England for the 1921 British golf championships. When lea-ring for home a few weeks ago both Harry Yard on and Ted Hay predicted that a strong American team, including such players as Evans, Quinet and Bobby Jones would surely "clean up" the best British amateurs. Naturally Vardon and Ray could naraiy oe expecrea to oe as enthusi astic over the chances of American professionals. Evans, Ouiztet and Jerry T ravers tried Invading England before, with out much success, partly because conn, ditioas-were then strange to them, and partly because of Harold Hilton and several other great English ama teurs who were then at the top of their form. Went to 3T(h Green. In 1120 Bob Gardner, playing be low his usual form, carried Cyril Tol ley to the 37th green at Muirbead In the British amateur championship finals before the husky Oxford stu dent could win. In 1904, at Sandwich, Walter J. Travis won the British amateur, be ing the only American to torn that trick. Tbe old Hemsd Caesar oaee said or the aaWeat Bsitoa that the j aaly troable with theaa was they ! dldat knew whea they were ' whipped.

Many former stars of the game arc feeling the stiffness and uncertainty of age creeping on. Harry Vardon. James Braid and J. H. Taylor, who among them have won about la open titles, are u earing the retiring stage. Vardon, certainly, will soon drop out He is now iO. and after the American open at Toledo last summer said that he would never go through the strain of another national tournament. No America pro has ever won a British open meet. Walter Hagen, best equipped of all the home stars, tried last year at Deal, but finished 2C strokes behind Georsre Duncan, the winner. Hagen fell victim, like many othep American golfers, to tbe chang ing sand dune conditions and high winds that make English seaside courses treacherous for strangers. BKMPSRY OUT OX LINKS. Jack Dempsey ts said to be under going: treatment for a slightly thick- ! ened ear resulting from a wild wallop 1 LFET HOOK PUT MOVIES SHOW POWER OF CHAMP By SID NEW TORK. Jan. 4. The blow that folded up Bill Brennan. in bis re cent encounter with Jack Demp sey was a short left hook to the body, following a long right that Jarred Brennan and caused him to seek the protection of a clinch. The right may have been the more damaging blow, but the defeated boxer did not curl up until after he ran into the left two seconds later. The last blow struck by Dempsey was a choppy right swing which land ed on the left side of Brennan's jaw and accelerated his drop to the can vas. Some of the critics at the ring side described this as a "rabbit punoh" which dropped on the back of Brennan's neck and beat him down to the floor. Bresmaa Sees Pictures. Brennan was an interested specta tor at the first showing of the film reproduction of the fight the other nignt at tne Friars' club. Three cameras were trained on the ring at tne uaraen. and tne tweutn round is pictured by all three in the film. Two of these vlws do not show the Mows preceding the knockout, but the third, taken from the Twenty seventh street side of the Garden, shows Brennan facing the camera as Lempsey cnarges mm.

Jack isn't taking any chance.

Dempsey showed ho could call on nis reserves tor a puck Ttniah after 12 rounds of hard fighting. Why Expect IC O. ia Karly Bounds. Funny that Dempsey should bo criticised for not winning in a round or two from Brennan. in the "good old days' champions seldom won in loss than SO rounds, and championship fights between first class men some times wont over forty. For instance, Kelson-GaBS, SuUlvan-Kilraia, Andy Bowen-Austin Gibbons. Ike Weir Frank Mamfav. Jaek ifcAnUffo-Jam Carney (74 rounds), Wolgast-Nelson (40 rounds).

The last two were draws, the men being too weary to put up their hands when the referee finally stepped between. I THE RIGHT MAX. Baseball club owners are beginning to ask how Judge Landls will run baseball aad find time to retain his bench seat in Chicago. The Judge says baseball must bo cleared of professional gamblers. Woo could perform this mirado with loss waste of time than a geat wbo has the habit of saying: "Six months aext case." STILL BLUFFLXC.

The movies, shot from an elevation, show Brennan pressing forward and Invit ing mix-ups most of the time in the first 10 rounds. A referee, judging the fight for the first II rounds from the pictures, would be inclined to call It a draw, as the film shows Brennan landing as often aa Dempsey. What the pictures do not nnrtrv however, is the damage wrought -by Dempsey at short range Brennan took a lerrinc Dody ooundinlr beiorr he collapsed.
