Barrow "discovered" Wngncr more than 40 years ago. Speaking irto a microphone set, up between former President. Her- j beit Hoover nnd Postmaster General Jim Farley, Wagner said: "On my right is a man ivlio.- has held the job. and on my. left is n man who wouldn't mind having it. But don't forget we have aii- clher eligible candidate for' (he presidency here tonight. His name is Ed Harrow." : ' . Applause shook the room. Hoover laughed. Farley turned Crimson Barrow, who despises public appearances and bad .raid no more than a dozen words when presented with the writers' plaque lor meritoricus service to baseball, put his hand up to the side of his head as If stunned. : One of the wags wise-cracked: i'How are r,'} going to stop' tlie' Yankees \l 'UUITOIV is president? That topic was one of the main , targets, along with judge Lantlls and Bill Terry, of the dinner show staged by (lie writers. The only other sericus business was presentation of the "player of- (he year" award lo'Bucky Wallers Cincinnati Red pitcher who won . 27 games last year. i .The stage, was set as n big press box. Tom Meany of the New York World-Telegram acted as quiz muster in the "mis-information please" skit. When lie asked how to "slop the Yankees " cue of hi? stooges replied: "Report it to, Roosevelt. Legislation might, stop cm." I . A "newsreel" also was devoted lo I - the subject with President Rposc-' velt, King George, Adolf : Hitler ' Benlto Mussolini, Halle Selassie'' and Josef r .-Stalin all 'Imploring their listeners to "stop tiic Yank•• era.!'

He gave boredom .1.5 tlie reason. There is little or no variety in tennis, Vines said. Every game Is almost a duplicate or Che one ployed tlie day hefoie. Same type 1 of spectalti's, same sort of court, same sleeping .linesmen, same strikes, same everything. Golf, Vines went on to say, is Just the opposite. You can play the same course every day for n year and never have Identical shots to make. The former U. S. Wimbledon tltleholdcr also said lie thought It was t;uglier lo become a golf champion than a tennis kind because there arc so many more shots lo perfect and so much skill and delicacy needed to execute them. A little old lady who all bin pierced my ear with it shooting slick cmphiilfcnlly slated Hint Jimmy Thompson was tlic longest, hitter Hint gclf has ever known. "1 have watched Mr. Thompson play many times and lie always hits ihe ball •!!<) yards," she said. •'Pulls too?'' Someone nskcd, "Yes, putts, too." From the way.

At this point Mr. Buck went into n graphic description of Ihc 150 strokes lie had needed for tlic same nine holes the (lay before. U was at this poiiil that ! took my ear from tlic ground and got up. Having lost a t«o dollar bet lo Mr. Buck oh the round he was describing, i didn't want to listen lo his open, shameless bragging, Sammy Byrd. who quit baseball lo become a golf professional, 'was being qucstttned by a reporter when I walked by on Ihc way lo Ihe clubhouse. "Why did you give tip baseball for lhl s game'/" tlie golf writer wanted to know. "Because ] started hitting .250 in the majors," Babe Hulh's former underslud.; answered.
