The pneumonia marathon began its second merry whirl today and if any of the sapheads out there in the mud and rain escape with their lives, it won't be their fault. The brave young men are offering offering up their lives on the altar of golf, with a $5000 lure dangled before their eyes, but in the humble opinion opinion of your correspondent if they weren't all a bit-screwey, bit-screwey, bit-screwey, they'd be at home before a nice comfortable fire. How anything can be classed as fun that is subject to the discomfort discomfort of this enghth annual San Francisco Francisco match play tournament is far beyond me. But if the boys must wander about in the middle of a hurricane, whacking whacking a little ball around a rain and wind-swept wind-swept wind-swept pasture, there must be heroes like me, willing to brave the elements by sitting in a steam-heated steam-heated steam-heated clubhouse to report the proceedings. proceedings. Today marks the second 18-hole 18-hole 18-hole qualifying round, after wliich the field will be chopped down to the low 32 scorers, who will begin a two-a-day two-a-day two-a-day two-a-day two-a-day match play battle tomorrow. tomorrow.

That I say, may be the chief item of interest interest to the customers, but to me there are two things that far transcend transcend it in importance. 1. The fact that Lawson Little, the defending champion, is only one stroke behind Congdon, and that Neil Christian, the square faced chap from Yakima, who carried Lawson20 holes in last year's final, is only one'stroke behind the former British and American amateur champ, is even of more interest. I remember the thrilling match they staged last yearat Ingleside. I re member Little coming in with the match in his sweater pocket, four up and four to go. And then the game Christian turned on the heat and was not downed until the 20th hole. The closeness of their scores yesterday, yesterday, Little with a 76 and Christian a 77, brings back memories of last year's thriller, and the hope we will see something equally as interesting this year. 2.
