One Is to hit tiiu hall hard enough to gui it up to'life! nip and the other Is to hit 111 straight enough so it will drop when It has gone far enough. Very simple.

Alter that, grasp the club "with the customary grip judge how hard It must be hit and then hit it thai iavd. Long ago I found how useful that method is. If you've seen n big tournament like the National Open far instance, you will have noticed that at least three-quarters of the participants do this same thing. For some reason U is easier, or muj,t good players seem to think II Is, to get the clubhead on the proper line by placing it in front of the ball than in placing it behind when addressing the ball, Southern League W.

KV WILLIAM BRAUCHER NBA Service Sports Editor ATLANTA, Ga.—The governor of North Carolina may never have imolher word to say to the governor of South Carolina, but it'; barely possible we will be able to report for some chatter one of thess ituys between a couple of other southern gentlemen, the mayor of Atlanta, Ga., and the-mayor of I Macon, In the same state, j Maybe we are Just fooling ,but j I it Is our Idea that .some day one | ' of these fine evenings, the mayoi of Atlanta will say to the mayor of Macon, "Well, well, old sardine. I see where yon have a champt9n too." TJils would take place (don't laugh) shortly after W. L. "Young" Mrlbling had knocked out Max Schmellng or somebody for the heavyweight championship of thv world.' If I had said something like this In public no longer than last summer, somebody surely would hay stood up and said, "Yes, yes, and now tell us all about your new idea for teaching horses to spit." But time flics, (he Brooklyn Robins are at the top of une of the lending minor leagues, and you can't tel? the age of a dead herring by Us teeth. We are here today and gone tomorrow. It is true that Willie, as they call him down In his native canebreaks has messed up every important chance he fell heir to. His touts with Berlenbach, Loughran, Sharkey and a few more fellows linger in unfragrant memory. Of course the toy always was ready with an alibi—he had fractured a toenall or dislocated a couple of vertebrae in his tonsils or something like that. But'lately he has been playing country,cousin to the people b'I'tlie prize ring In a very negative manner. It litis' taken him less than three rounds to knock out Otto Von Porat and Phil Scott. He beat Scott before the plaintive Britisher had time lo holler foul, which is .some sort- of a record. Even in these bouts there was something the matter with the Stribtlng left hand. Perhaps if Pa and Ma Stribling ever can get the young man in the ring in perfect physical condition he'll kill somebody., * RABBIT*' MARANV1LLE Tt\e w R68Bfr W& UAS BSEM IN CMER, 2100 816 l£H60E'CAME£/ MoRE Ttti^i OTHER, pRESenT-PAV FIRST LCMETf\E TIHELERS SLIP hands I ever saw. And he showed when he fought Berlenbach that he could take it.". What keeps him from "culling loose"? Imagination, nerves, fear? I've heard from a dozen boxing critics a dozen different opinions of Young Stribling. One excuse offered for some of his poor show ings was that he was mismanaged. Another ,vns that he had too much cimtion. Still another was that h? has had hard luck. The fact is. Young Stribling is.a whale of a fight;! 1 . He has every 0.1 3l!fiKit!on of physique and skill with which to reach the top. And if he keeps on "cutting loose" I do not see how he can fail to win the world championship.

Chicks' Bobbles 'Are Cosily; Orphan Bears Door- maf for Birmingham. • ATLANTA On. — The Memphis Chicks managed (o lose a game to Ihe Little Rock Travelers yesterday in their chase to cop the Southern bunting without much opposition. The Travelers won 3 to 2 with three errors iu the first Inning giving the Pebbles two funs without the semblance of a hit. • Barnbe and Moore of the Pebbles held the fence crashing ChiOXa- saws to fiive hits while Kelly gave up nine. The Atlanta Crackers put the second place Pels even worse off than before the Wednesday games started however, by walloping the Gilbert team twice, 5 to J and 5 to 4. Messenger held the Pels I" seven hits in the first cncountt: j while the Crax used their blnglcs to better advantage than 'the Pels u the second fray. The lonely orphan Bears of Mobile furnished two victories for the Birmingham Barons at Birming- yesterday losing 13 to 4 find 7 o 4. The veteran Caldwell hurled .he first victory while Plue 1 waltzed tlirough in the secoi<d. Caldwell contributed a homer to his victory. Trenton Team Defeats Cooler Nine, 10 to 8 COOTER.
