Neither did I see the Wnlls of Jericho come tumbling down. Hut, Insofar as high confusion is concerned, 1 have not lived In vain. When my grandchildren gather around my knees, dny after tomorrow, I will bo able to tell them that I was present, at the Pomonok Country club, when the professional golfers of America went on strike. It was the only ; stand-up sit- down strike' in history; Human life \yns at a premium as the Bit-downers charged from robin to room, from conference to conference. Confusion was so ra'mpant that Walter lltigen, that loose lent page from Esquire magazine, 'm'nde two public appearances without n tie on, and with his cuff links unsnapped. Gene Sarazen, a fugitive from Brooks' brothers, swirled here nnd there with one 'gaiter nnpplng, ind Johnny Fnrrell, long recpgniz- Jd by Mrs. Kiirrell as the world's best dressed golfer, attended two conferences without a change of :lothcs. Excitement reached such a crc-st In mid-aflcrnoon that Byron Nelson, \NaUonal Open clinmpion cliangcd expression; IZftlph Giildnlil quickened his. pace from"-a shtilfle to a slow glide, and Horton Smith witJi caught buying (and paying for) a soft drink. Even George Jacobus, thought to be •immune 'rom everything, seemed to realize something was amiss, and went in nnd out of doors like a second itory worker with a skeleton key. The cause of it all—Senny Slnite —was a one-man shuttle from the -oom where the players were strik- ngi~and the room where the executive committee sat in perspir- ng, if not solemn, session. It was lot until mid-afternoon, hours ifter the toiirnnment w«s sched- iled to begin, that the committee ;ave in and said Slnite could piny, :ven though he was two days late with the payment of his dues. While the controversy, between Ihe committee and the players raged upstairs, the members of the Pomonok Club and the spectators who had paid good money to see .he stars in action raged downstairs and -out -lot doors. Men searched through their pockets for brass knucks, and their women readied French heels. Some wanted to lay on the executive committee and others craved a whack at the •Jlriket's. Enterprising young men oegan .hmnmerliw together sandwich boaws - for p'fcketing,-' while cooler heads put'through calls for John L. Lewis, William Green, and Madame : Seoretary Perkins, one young radical Hopped himself down in a sand trap and said he would not move until played out with a niblick, and another tore through the high rough, bordering the.first fairway crying,.;"! am unfair to disorganized backswihgs." The strike - ended much, niiicli more quickly • than' ;il. .started Overcome by the heilt of their own arguments the executive committee suddenly threw open the door of the. conference room, staggered .BLYTHEVILLE, '(ARK.y COURIER NEWS Member Of Strongarm Squad McCarthy Announces American Loop Lineup NEW YORK, July 10.
