WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 1952 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE TWENTY-OHt Ronndtin -"----------*- .._._ British Amateur at Presbviek Stirs Memories of Slaughter By OAVLK f ALflOT NEW YORK, May 28. ,?-They are holding another British Amateur golf championship this week at Prestwlck, the century-old links on the Scottish seacoast, and memory turns back 18 years to the day Lawson LHtle scored possibly the most remarkable victory in the history of golf there. The brawny youngster from thr West coast won the first of four straight British and American amateur titles with a record-breaking 14 and 13 triumph over Jim Wallace, a sad-faced Scottish carpenter. It is doubtful there ever will be another golfing gallery as shamelessly partisan in its behavior as the one which swarmed the dunes that day and angered Little and turned him into a killer. Little shot the first nine holes in 33 strokes and was 6 up. He shot the second nine in 33 and was 12 up. He scorched the first five holes of the afternoon round and the one-sided slaughter was over. He had taken 82 strokes for 23 holes, with every putt knocked down. On the final green Little shook hands with his dazed adversary and said "Jim, I'm sorry it had to be you." Prestwick is a manufacturing town—woolen mills or something of the sort — and when word got around that Wallace, the artisan, was battling a silver-spoon American in the final, school let out. They came tearing in through the back gate by the thousands to cheer Wallace on. When Little putted they yelled "Miss it!" and as his ball neared the hole they shouted "Stay out!" It didn't take much of that to turn Little into a very rough customer and to doom the innocent Wallace 1o a frightful beating. Ordinarily, Scottisli galleries are inpeccable.
