TUESDAY, JANUARY 11,1938. THE MORNING HERALD, HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND. THOMSON WINNER OFGOLFTOURNEY Captures First Major Tour nament of His Career with Revolta Second Los Angeles, Jan. 10, (/P), —Husky Jimmy Thompson won the first ma- jo; golf tournament of his career today when he posted a 72-hole score of 273 to walk away with' the 57,500 Los Angeles Open. The siege gun from Shawnce-on- the-Delaware, Pa., many times n runner-yn for championship honors refused to t"a'l any one through the Los Angelas tournament, and set a now tourn; 'iient record with his score, capped by a 68, three under par, on the final round. Victory to the winner was worth ?2,100. Thompson finished three strokes to the good over Johnny Revolta of Evanston, 111., the same margin separating the leader from the field when the final 18 holes started to day .before a 'eiy that swelled t-j nearly 5,000 before the shootin, ended. Tied will! 278 were Lawson Lit. tie. San Francisco's ex-amateur champion, and Henry Picard, Hershey, Pa. Listed, at-279 were Morton Smith, Chicago's gangling onetime "Joplin Ghost"; George Von Elm, another former national amateur -king; Willie Goggin, San Francisco', and Lloyd Mangrum. Dayton, Ohio. Sam Snead, White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., had a 219-69—288. Runner-up to Revolta in the recent Miami Biltmore, runner-up to Sam Parks for the national open title in 1935 and to Denny Shute in 1936 for the P. G. A. championship, broad shouldered Jimmy took the lead at the start of the Los Angeles and never gave it up. His 36-hble.score of 131 set a new record for golfers to shoot at, and while he faltered with a 74 in the third round, his 68 today was* better than enough to stand oft any challenge. He was one under on tliq first nine, and hirdied the 12th and 14th coming back. OFFICE EQUIPMENT Hagerstown Bookbinding & Printing Co. TELEPHONE 2000—2001 HONEY BREAD .

TODAY'S CROSSWORD PUZZLE 28 35 ZS 29 15 34- 19 IS •2.1 .19 ON DOWN THE SPORTS TRAIL By PAUL MICKELSON New York, Jan. 10, (/P).—A column on, golf: COMEBAC'v—The most hand some professional in golf is making the grandest comeback in sports today. When Dick Metz ot Chicago clacked up in Gene Sarazen'g car last March, very few people ex- peeled him to play golf again. For sir. months he was in bed." By a margin of a few minutes he saved hif shattered leg from amputation. It was a cruel blow for the curly- haired Adonis was about to ride atop the sporting world when the crash came. The month previous he had won two big tournaments and was offered a motion picture contract. But the six months in bed, most of it under lights, weren't exactly wasted. "I played more golf in bed than I ever did before," said Dick. "I played every course I ever saw all over again, studied my game and got a marvelous putting touch." Dick's first tournament start was at Pinehurst last November. He finished in the money right near the top. His second was the rich Miami Biltmore and he tied for second, one shot behind the winner, Johnny Revolta. Today, as a year ago, Dick rates as perhaps the hottest golfer in the land. Broadway Jack Doyle, the betting commissioner, has named him as 'one of the "big five" threats for the National Open. CLASS—Although the general impression Is it takes a dumb person to play a great game of golf. Mrs. Estelle Lawson Page, women's national champion, belies the theory. Mrs. Page was a Phi Beta Kappa at college. Since Mrs. Page won the National at Memphis, golf stylists and critics are beginning t, appreciate her game. Many predict she will become America's greatest woman player—even better than Mrs. Glenna Collett Vare, Helen Hicks or Virginia Van Wie. Beautiful tee shots and consistency are the big points of the Chapel Hill, N. C., matron's game. Her "pro" is her father, Dr. Robert Lawson, professor at the University ot North Carolina. The professor Is satis- DEAD BALL TRIAL FAILS TO PLEASE Sluggers of Three Leagues Try Our Lively Ball and Dead Pellet Baltimore, Jan. 10, (fl 3 ).—Midwinter tests today of the new National League "dead" ball with sluggers from three leagues participating brought three conclusions: 1—The dead ball has a soggy "whoosh" sound when hit. 2.—The livelier American and International League ball emlls a socking "whack." 3—Either hall will go over tile fence when hit "on the nose." •1. Jimmy Foxx of the Boston Red Sox former home .run king, slammed two of each type over the wall and announced: "I don't think the dead ball will hurt the -340 hitters In the National League as much as the .275 players. 1 look for a difference of 20 points for the light men but only four or five for the sluggers.' Chuck Klein, the Phillies' National League slugger, who likewise sent a pair of each type over the fence, said: "If you like a 'whooshy' Ball— that's'o. K. I like the old ball — but It doesn't make -nuch difference." Charley Keller, leading slugger for the International League in 1937 didn't do so well with the dead ball but smacked the "live" ones into the.,bleacjiers with monotonous regularity: Said Jack Ogden, general manager of the Orioles—"about all the tests prove Is that if you hit the ball on the nose it. will go over the fence. * * *" ;; fled everything about his daughter's game but her chip shots from off the edse of the green. Western Loop to Disband Circuit Moline, 111., Jan. 10, (IP). — The Weslern League, one of the oldest baseball circuits in the midwest, virtually voted to disband today, opening the way; for an eight-club three-eye league next summer. Although Western League club owners, meeting at Davenport. la., did not. vote to break up their circuit at this time, they gave clubs permission to apply for membership In other leagues. --The Western owners, after their conference, moved to Moline, where officials of the Three-Bye League (Indiana, Illinois, Iowa) accepted and awarded franchises to several of the Western League clubs, it was reported owners of the West- clubs would meet soon for a formal disbanding of the circuit.

Aircrafts and other armaments favorites touched oft the extension of last week's recovery, although most of these finished well under their tops of the session as speculative attention switched to the carriers in the final hour. Buying was fast enough to put the ticker tape behind for a while in the second hour. Many traders cashed profits on the • run'-up, however, and dealings slowed in the tail end of the proceedings. There \vas a burst of strength in the motors and steels had their moment in the limelight, along with selected coppers and farm implements. / The aviation department, as well as other issues with a .war materials flavor, again stepped forward on expectations broadening of national defense is virtually a certainty.
