' Shule isn't bitter about Hie busies, mind jon, because golf has en klndei to him than lo most ' the men \\ho play It for a liv- ;. Enough putts dropped in, the P. enough drives and brassies lit In the middle, to enable him win the British Open title and o U S p o A championships, is eating and well, which is ore than you can say for some the boys whose careers nre nrV rapped up in mnshles nnd spoons id wedges ' But Slnito thinks the pros are ing taken for suckers. "Just try to figure out what nse the open makes," shutc said st night after Ills final practice und for the 1039 open, which arted today on the course of the uladelphla Country club "The irse Ms $1,000. There were more an 1,100 fellov\s who paid/lhc itry fee of 55 in Ihe hope of unifying. That makes something ke $6,000, nnd as half of the inen ho paid were pros you can see iftt those ol us here nre actually aying for our own money. "Champions of other sports with s widespread appeal as golf make Is of money. But not golf champ- ns Sam Sueart was a sensation st year, and led all the fellows n money won. Yet Sam didn't uite win $20,000. Sam didn't make Is money easily. He was playing early every day, through al\ sorts f weather. Whether he felt good ad, or indifferent didn't make nny IfTcrencc. He hnd to keep going. Jut of hi? winnings he had to »y all of his expenses, and they (in into money, even to a bachelor Take (he Open in Denver last year unless a man lived In the neigh- borhood, he went lo' Denver knowing he had lo -finish seventh or better to break even. And finishing seventh In an ope;v these clays when the competition is so great, is something no man can count on—not, even Guldahl. One bad hole— one seven, eight or. nine— nnd you are out of the running" Shute hasn't hny solution for the problem. There has been a remedy or two suggested, one being that the top ranking professionals, Die ones with box office names boycott the Open unless the ni-fec money Is raised. But the pros never will do thai. .They -love golf too well, have too much, of the live loday and let, tomorrow take care of ilself spirit. ; They are the truest amateurs of ail, the golf professionals, and unless IT voice, is .wised in their behalf Iliey will go on walking their legs off, trying their hearts out and half .starving.

Is being called "the new Tiuinoy," And those who are petitioning Michael Strnuss Jacobs not to rush Nova into a match with Joe Louis •.might .recall the career of the Manly Marine.

Recall what happened to 24-year-old Gene Ttmney when he was "rushed" into a blg-tlme mutch in 1922 Tlmt was (he time Tunney first bumped Into Harry Greb. I still iiave a picture of Doe Bagley applying a leech to Tunncy's eye and telling the Irish youth not to be discouraged. "I'm not discouraged" Tunney kept repeating. .'',•. Jle wasn't. He beat the amazing Greb a year later—(rouhced him in four subsequent meetings. Tmmey was 28 when he was paired with Jack Deiiipsey-and our wisest experts said and wrote that the chances were that, the Greenwich Village Polly wouldn't as much as show up. I'ltOVED HE ' COULD TAKE IT .-.','. '., That gives Novn four more years lo get ready for the supreme ef- rorl. Now, the Max Baer. of the other night wasn't a Greb by .any stretch of the Ininginatlcn, but at (lie conclusion of 10 and a fiacticn rounds Baer looked like Tunney after the old Pittsburgh .windmill had. finished with the. marine ,In their first excursion. A truck might just as well have hit Tunney and Baer. '".''•.••' ', '': ' Nova Irained at Ihe Clarksiovvn Country Club, where for 20 yea'rs or so Dr. Pierre Bernard has been teaching Yogaism.

What lie must, acquire is .grace and rhythm. He must be taught to protect himself inside. All he does now Is piU his arms aratmd the other bloke's neck and hug him like an amateur. In Nova's favor are size, rea'cli,' gameness and an undeniable number of fistic weapons ; . . dull to be sure . . \. but there to be sharpened. And above all,, ills love for thc game. lie quit college , 'gave up football . . . lo box. " 'f If Nova had his way, he'd fight' Louis tomorrow night, but he's Intelligent enough to listen to advisers. : He's another Tunney, all rl»ht although he can get along ° in (raining without 12-pound bocks. He requires none of the old Tunney veneer. He lectured at Manhattan College the other afternoon without once putting a. big vvcrd on thc wrong stilts. Lou Nova may never be able to whip Joe Louis, but he's a fine, clean boy who has earned and Is entitled to the opportunity.
