'ASBURY PARK EVENING PRESS (THE EVENING NEWS), WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, m9 15. Amateurs Turn To Match Play Chapman Capturei Medal in National Tourney; Shore Start Fail MAMARONBCK, N. Y. VP) Tim qualifying scramble ended, M earnest Joun golf en from the cities and from the rota of the creek paired off at Winged Foot club today in two "sudden death" rounds of match play in the National Amateur championship. In the last two days the field of hope fuls had been reduced from a cumber tome 144. At dusk tonight there were due to be only 18 left to carry on the cut-throat competition. They go fast In the amateur. Among those who missed the qualifying circle were two youthful Jersey Shore start Bobby Jacobson, Holly wood, and Wilson Flohr, Norwood. Jacobson, the dlctrlct qualifying medalist, added a 78 yesterday to his first-day 80, while Flohr took 163 strokes with rounds of 81 and 82. Gone were such notables as Johnny Goodman, George Dunlap, Jr., Chick Ivans and Francis Oulmet all former champions. Gone also was young John Cree of Hamburg, N. Y., who shot a sparkling 71 on his first qualifying round and then soared to a remarkable (7 on his second try. He used up nine pkes on one hole, the lKh. Dick Chapman of Winged Foot was one they all were watching as he 1 off In his first test today. Dick, a might club crooner during the off-sea son, shot two sub-par rounds of 71-68 to capture medal honors by what apparently was a record margin. His two-day total was five strokes better than the 145's registered by Marvin Ward of Spokane, Wash., the defending champion, and by Duff McCullough of Philadelphia. Next best margin appeared to be the four strokes by which Bobby Jones distanced his amateur rivals in 1926. Still, Chapman lacked a stroke of equalling the qualifying record of 199 set last year by Tom Sheehan. 155 Scores Qualify Scores of 155 or better qualified all except the 155 shot by Tommy Barnes of Atlanta. There were eight at that figure, and in the knock-out competition for seven places just before dark Bamea got mixed up in the rough and took a six. It was fatal. Four players tied at 146 for the two rounds George Dawson of Chicago; Maurice McCarthy, jr., of Cincinnati, who led at the end of the first round; Tom Whlteway of Cleveland and Harold Mandly of Avon, Conn. Frank Strafact of Brooklyn, Freddie Haas of New Orleans and Steve Kovach of Pittsburgh were tied at 147. Bob Clark of ftt. Paul, the National Public Links champion, failed to qualify with his 164. . Bing Crosby missed the train, too, with his 83-77, much to the disappointment of the tournament committee and an adoring gallery, but he made a commendable comeback.

Ward, on , the other hand, had had very little success knocking them in up to this point, Xtni observers thought he still looked like the man to beat. A couple of well known professionals, who preferred to remain nameless, said they thought it lay between Ward and Wilford Wehrle of Chicago, who had a two-day score of 150. Chapman faced very tough oompetl-at. tion in the first round from Nell White lof Culver City, Cal., the current southern amateur champion.

Elmore Gardner, of Rldgewood, head of a brick company, Instituted the suit against William Brian, Hackensack dress store operator, charging the latter failed to "pay up" following a golf match six weeks ago. Terms of ths settlement were not announced. Helm of Coast Eleven, Finds New Spirit PALO ALTO, Cal. (;P). Stanford opens its 1940 fall football campaign with a new coaching staff, a new system and new spirit, Practically everything is new except tht playing field and a batch of holdovers of exceptional talent. It usually takes from two to three years for an incoming coach to get his organization perfected, but from the way Clark Shaughnessy had things rolling in spring practice observers would not be surprised to see Stanford in the thick of the Pacific Coast conference fight from the start. Stanford football in 1939 was of the "hot and cold" variety. The team looked great in some games and sour In others. The machinery was ther but, It wasn't running as smoothly as had been hoped for. Shaughnessy took over with a decidedly unimpressive "won and lost" record In his last season. His 1939 University of Chicago team, was distinguished by the fact it lost games by scores of as high as 85 to 0 before It abandoned intercollegiate football. At Chicago, however, Shaughnessy had such weak material he had difficulty in rounding up enough players for a second rate team. His ability as a top ranking coach, organizer and leader never was questioned. Turnout Thrills Him His eyes popped open when he gazed at the Stanford turnout last spring. Every morning, before the novelty wore off, he murmured delightedly over his oatmeal at the prospect of having a 225-pound fullback who could run like a race horse, big tackles, some well-trained ends and at least two players for every position. In the talent the new mentor in herited was Norm Standlee, potentially the best fullback on the coast last year. Under the new leadership, Stanford's traditional wingback system will not be so much In evidence this fall. Shaughnessy makes use of all styles of play to fit his material. The backneld already has been trained in the Notre Dame "T" formation and the Notre Dame box, in addition to the held-over single wingback setup. All indications point toward a strong emphasis on the passing game, this phase probably outweighing the power side of the game. The reverse has been true with Stanford teams of the past. The team opens Its nine-game schedule Sept. 28 with the University of San Francisco In the latter's home stadium. Stanford has no intersectlonal contests listed this fall. C, and Reading, Pi.
