Redoubtable Robert had to yield a few headlines to such other worthy fllngers as Spud chandler, Dave (Boo) Ferrlss, Mickey Harris, and Hal Newhouscr after his Job against the Yankees, because he is with n ball club that seems destined to shuttle up and down In the second division of the American League race. But the Iowa plowboy commanded attention once again today for his electrifying performance In striking out 14 Washington Senators In a 10 to 2 night gamfi victory in the nation's capital last night. He shone brighter than all tlie lights in Griffith stadium as he used his fast ball and curve in baffling alternation to bring his season's total of strikeouts to 118 for 103 Innings. At thnt rate, he should top" the 1904 mark of 343 strikeouts for n season set by Rube Waddell of the Athletics. And even If he miss- led the Bostonlans.

By OSCAR FHALKY United Pre« Sport. Writer MAMARONECK, N. Y., June 5. (UP)—A boycott of the National Oixm championship by the nation's professional golfers appeared to be an eventual probability today as the fairway fraternity questioned an $8,000 payoH on. a toyrnament which draws at least $150,000. The men who make their living by consistent driving, chipping and putting—and -who draw moat of thnt total sum Into the coffers of the Amateur U. S. Golf Association In the Open—play a long series of round - the - calendar tournaments and none of these events pay less than $10,000. A few make splendid money. Others barely meet expenses. And still others don't, as they travel from tournament to tournament ori a diet of doughnuts and coffee, hoplna some day to hit the Jackpot at the end of the rainbow. Yet, they feel that as professionals whose names are blazoned from every week In the year they nrc the magnet which makes the Open what It Is. U. S. G. A. officials probably feel that probably feel that Iff! »lone. Other profitable items, estimated are $20,000 for radio rights, (10,000 from the program ami a (100,000 gate. Those Items have to be estimated. Because If you ask the U. S. G. A. . . . as I did they'll tell you In no uncertain terms that what they make Js none of your business. They will condescend to explain that after that $8,000 prize money s lopped off there are a great many expenses. The home club and the association, for Instance, must r.pllt hat admission and concession gr.i- vy.

Why such tremendous sums might f needed Is hard to understand when you consider that, vlthout help, a tree was able to grow in Brooklyn.
