' The "Bat" came to Alabama unheralded- and unsung and was literally lost on the big frosh squad of 192«. Undismayed, Bellini came out foi the 1929 varsity. He was consigned to the scrubs and stayed there until several of the regular backs were injured. Then the "Bat" got his chance. • Playing in the safety position he startled • spectators and coaches alike by his spectacular playing. It is a treat to sec 1 the'"Eat" National Amateur Championship to Be Decidecl Today; Bobby Favorite. ARDMORE. Pa.—With the Amateur National championship wait- irlg beyond 35 holes or maybe less today Bobby Jones, the supreme,. •• golfer, will play Eugene Honiani 22-year-old youngster, today. \jr If Jones triumphs today, and the Atlanta barrister is an overwhelming favorite, he will have the four major golf crowns of the year and probably the greatest achievement that may ever be recorded by any golfer. Five down- after the first 18 holes, three down at the 27th and •still two down with four to go. Homans with tremendous flghtiiig spirit won three of the last four holes to beat 19-year-old Charley Seaver of Los Angeles, one up oh the 36th and last green in the semi-finals yesterday. Jones' machine-like golf easily disposed of Jess Sweetser in the other half of the semi-finals, 8 up and 7 to play. Honmns remains as the only barrier between Jones and .a fourth national championship triumph for the year—a clean sweep that would leave King Bob with rip more worlds to conquer and a record that n> a y never be equaled. :'. Brilliant as was the golf Homans displayed in overcoming Seaver, the Jersey youth went the last 18 holes in an even par--70, nevertheless, he would have been 6 down to Jones ot the 28th on the bssls of their two performances yesterday. The finalists have met once before, in the second round at Mlnt- kahda In 1927 when Jones was the victor over Homans. by the count of 3 and 2.
