CUP) — Bookmakers with loud voice. 1 ; nnd vests to match today paid Ralph Guklahl Uic highest compliment ever tendered n K^lfer. with the National Open goif championship only a day invny, ihese shrewd slmrpshooters qtioicd Guhldahl nt odds of only, 8 to 1 to win his third successive open title, These odds are not bnsMl on sentiment or old school tie rubbish: They are bnscil on past performance alone, and the fact that the iMokirs, as much as liioy want bets, cannot. 1511010 a more .attractive price on Giilrtahl Is u high, high trluule, indeed, to (he big stoop- shouldered Norwegian. . Mind yon, only one man in history hi\s ever won three opens in ft r:w mid thut mnn whs Willie Anderson, who played in the lon», long ago when birdies were so rare players who iliol them took them home and sltilled aixl mounted them. Willie's winning scores In the opens of his lime wouldn't even qualify i,( m f or u, c 0{mi now . No other gnme oilers the stirring competition thnt modern day pelf does. There was a lime, nol many years ago, when yon could name the great golfers on the lingers of your two hands. Today you can borrow Ihc fingers of all your friends nnd still not Imve enough counters to nnmc nil of the' men who have u go:d chance to win the open. Unless ydu hnve traveled with, played with, and been beaten by as many of the top golfers as I have,' I doubt if you can hnve a full realization of wlint, the open cham- pbnshlp menus to any cue of them Prom the first time a professional swings a club for money, the open becomes his goal. First he drcnms of becoming gcod enough to play in it. nnd then' he dreams of winning It. As a professional golfer, lie knows what an o|>en victory will do for him. He can make n lot of ready cash during the year •ho holds the title. After thaWand this Is the rcal'lmporlnncc of a win in the No. 1 golf tournament of the \vorlfl~ll pays dividends to him for the rest of his life. With his name en the bi? silver cup he cnn always get n job. There is a glamour ihat slays with an open champion and makes him attractive to good golf clubs as long as he can get nround n course. Na wonder that the wives ol the professionals cry and come close lo hysteria while their men nrc competing In the open. It menus so much to them. It is security for them and their children, and security In the golf game is very rare. There, a re few golfers who themselves don't get the jitters playing for the open title. The few who don't nre nearly always the winners, and Hie coldest blooded, least Jittery man of them nil is Ralph Guldnh). ; Even more thnn his ability lo make great g'alf shots, the bookies respect his amazing calmness under pressure. Ouldalil plays the open just as If he were playing in a mixed foursome witli friends on a Sunday' afternoon. Try to name me another golfer who ever came up to the open and flatly declared that he felt sure of winning. Guldnhl did Hint n few dnys ngo. He fears no mnn, uud you may safely bet that HnlpJi has put a little of his own money right, on fellow named Ouldahl. ' Undoubtedly this confidence, in sports' greatest gamble-scramble, is one of the reasons he Is being quoted nl 0 to 1. Energetic Thieves Take Lumber For Building HALIFAX, N. S.

June 7 (UP)_Bi!Ck Ncwsom did II too — he let, the Yankees down with four hits and throttled the club everyone was saying should be broken up because It was too good. In two days the Yniiks have lost as many games n's they lost during their entire western trip on Die first journey into the setting sun. Tommy Bridges slipped Hi em Monday with four hits.

They move inlo Chicago today nnd Thorton (Lefly) Ue is ready to wheel his southpaw slants nt them. Another defeat for the Yanks nncl they may start, calling for reelnforcemenls. The Yanks clipped .Ncwsom for two runs In the fifth inning yesterday but wounud up losing, 'e-2. The Tigers kept hustling despite their two-run deficit and pushed over six runs In the sixth inning. Dixie Walker's double with Ihe bases loaded was the important punch. As far ns the American League race wns concerned the Yanks' defeat, practically went for naught, ns the Red Sox were bumped on" by the Indians, 8-7. With the score tied, 7-7, Ben Chapman and Oscar Grimes doubled to decide the gnme. The White Sox moved lo within half u gnme of second place by pounding out n 7-4 win over Ihe Athletics. Gerald Walker and llill Dielrich hit homers. Dietrich, knocked out of the box in his last start,, was the winning pitcher with some valuable aid from Clint Brown in the ninth. Scoring six rims In. the ninth, Washington triumphed over the Browns, 10-7, Roberto Estalello led the Senators' nttack with a homer, two doubles, nnd n single. Cincinnati had one of those days when everything went wrong nmi took a 17-3 shellacking from ahe Giants. The Terrymen hit seven homers to , tie the Major: Lea»ue record, and hit five in one inning to set n hew mark. Johnny Vaniler Mcer was rapped for six lilts" in two-thirds of an inning, biiyis, LIvengood nnd Thompson were plastered plenty as the Giants cudgled 20 hits. • ; ; The Cardinals beat the Bees, 5-3, in 10 Innings to reduce the Reds' lead to 3 1 ,!! games. Eddie Miller's boot on iv ground ball permitted tlie winning run lo score. Sill Martin led tlie Cards' attack with five lilts. Brooklyn moved into third place with a 5-2 victory over Pittsburgh. Freddy FHzsimmons won his first ;ame with n brilliant, exhibition of fielding and pltciilng in the clutches. Pinky Whitney's pinch single in the ninth climaxed a three-run rally and cnnblod the Phiiltos to beat the Cubs, 3-8. Joe Marty ex- Cub, started the winning rally with n single.
