Babe and Boss Look On It won't be long now until Miss Orcutt brings her game back north, •stopping on the way ul J'inhursi to' win the North-South again. For ;the last three years In a row she "has knocked off the talent at Pinehurst. For four years In n row she won the Metropolitan women's, I92G to 1939—before she wus 2a years old. Three times she won Ihc eastern title. 1925. 1928 and 1929. Four New Jersey cups are in her collection—1924, '25,' '2C nnd '27. And in 1930 and '31 she won the Canadian championship. That's a lot of winning for a young woman. Off her rating it would appear she couldn't miss n national title either here or In England, but somehow Maureen has' managed very well.

Fata Catches On The.sports world is just beginning to realize the fav-fUing effects of thai east-west polo tournament, staged as pare of the World's Fnir program in Chicago last year. Since the hard-riding western crowd of hoi-polloi drubbed the refined eastern squvirt in that series and gave the game back to the common people, polo fours have been springing up wherever four horses could be found pulling fire trucks. A glance at the skeleton schedule' of tournaments for 1934 shows more than 30 sectional and national matches on the list from the first of the year to Oct. 14. This schedule, however, leaves out the all-Important east-wesi Inrtoor series, which probably will be played In Chicago In April. This Interactional series will see Winston Guest, the only ranked 10-goal Indoor player in the game, leading-the boys from the east. Spreads in CeUtft Ranis The Increase in polo's popularity has had an effect on the college game. The sport has teen played under direction of the Intercollegiate Polo Association tor some time, and for 13 years formsl tournament lor college honors has been held. This event, however, has been confined to eastern play among limited number of teams. But present plans of the association call for a. much broader scope.
