The setting was complete. H was never more so, for this annual post-season classic, the 23rd session bringing together the undefeated champions of Dixie and unbeaten but once tied California, pride of the Fur West. The teams were in tip top condition. They appeared evenly matched. And the weather, barring a New Year's Day double-cross by the elements, appeared to be perfect. Alabama, marching into the big bowl for the fifth time, with an unparalleled record of three smashing victories and one tic behind it, was pledged lo uphold the tradition of the school. California ruled a slim favorite over the Crimson Tide. Betting was sharp at about even money— quite a drop from the three to one and two to one of earlier weeks.

By BILL BRAUCHER Central Press Snorts Editor The outstanding sports performer of 1937? Thai's eas>—red-haired, freckled Donald Budge, the California Comet! Not only [or one great deed, making it posible for the United Stales lo recover the Davis Cup lost 10 years ago, but for a dozen mighty feats. If you like a horse, take War Admiral, of course. The son of Big Red won the Derby, t'reakuess. lie'iinonl —and everything else he was asked lo win. His score for the year is 100 per cent. Budge's score is 100 per cent. too. Consider the year he has been through. First he conquered the international stars of the tennis world at Wimbledon, becoming the lirst American since 1932 to capture the British crown, a victory emblematic of world supremacy. Again at Forest Hills be met U greatest players in the world, and turned them back. The Davis Cup comniest was not one triumph, but a half do/.en. Before the United Stales team even got to first base the Australians had to be taken care of. After the Australians came the thrilling sets with (ler- inany in which Budge's racquet again turned the tide in favor of the IL S. A. Finally the British. Truly his series of performances was amazing. And now, instead of accepting a fat professional offer, Budge elects to remain an amateur for another year fo help tho home (earn to defend the world trophy. Though your correspondent, never was a tennis enlhusiasl, we'll have to hand it to Budge as greatest of them all. Plenty of Stars The year has been replete with grand performances. War Admiral Hid Seabiscuif stand out on the lurf. The great, trotters, flroy- lound and Shirley Hanover, winner of the Ilamblelonian, rule the liar- less horse world. But for accomplishments by our wo-leg'ged creatures, I believe ialph Gnldahl's great, job in wiil- liug the National Open must be ihiced close behind the sterling showing of Budge. Coming into he homestretch, Gilldahl was )eateti. Sam Snead seemed to lave the open in his grasp, with a score of 2S3, within one stroke be all-lime record for the eve,,,.

Twelve thousand thoroughbreds in training, in common with all other horses, will be a year older. To old timers, like Man '0 War, cele- bralir.g his 21st birthdry in Kentucky's blue grass, the day .will not mean much. But to approximately 5,000 yearlings ant. at least half that many two-year-olds it will mark the turning point in their careers. The yearlings will become eligible to appear under colors for the first time, while the juvenile racers will be in line for rich three- year-old stakes, ineln.ling the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont. "There are a few more than 5,000 yearlings registered," says Aiger- non Daingerfield of the Jockey Club. "But many >vill be found wanting when it comes to competition. If all made good, we would soon havo a surplus of horses in this country." Tho newcomers will not be asked to go more than three-eighths af a mile for the fiis month or two, but then the dis'ances will be lengthened gradmiJl. until, by the end of the season mr.ny will match speed and stamina with older horses in races over a mile. Many of the sports fur coats are-made in collarless style. KEEP THE CHANGE which you save by buying throujrh the acU In ihe Classified Section.

All merchants — nearly everybody who makes a living by selling something — can be divided into two distinct groups: GROUP ONE: The merchant whose goods give so little value that he, like the old-time vendor of gold-bricks, cannot expect "repeat" orders. He must make all his profit from the first (and only) sale. Then he must seek buyers not yet familiar with his goods or reputation, GROUP TWO: The merchant whose goods are sold in the hope of winning the purchaser's continued patronage. He can expect only a moderate profit. Thus, one sale per person is not enough. Each article must be good enough to make the buyer want to buy it again. The merchants who advertise in this paper belong in Group Two. They could not stay in business unless they earned "repeat" orders — unless they gave you honest value for every dollar you spend with them. That is why each article .they sell you must be so thoroughly satisfactory that you would later answer "yes" to this, the most important question a merchant can ask a customer: "Would you buy it again?.''
