Mny2-t. <fT) — The first world championship In golf, may take place next year in Portland, Ore. Robert A. (Bob) Hudson, Sr.. Portland business tycoon a n d sportsman, has been loving '.vith the idea several years. There Is a reasonable chance it nmy be real- zed In 1951. Tills Information comes from the Hudson headquarters. Such a golfing extravn^nnzi would be Ihe logical goal of Hudson, a dynamic personality who would try to rollcrskate up a mountain If the fancy seized him. Once tied up In a golfing enterprise, he will sec it through and with success. Golf fans will recall that he revived the Ryder Cup scries after o 10-year lapse. In 1917. he brought the Ryder Cup teams from Britain and the U.S. to Portland at a cost of approximately S35.000. Professionals consider him the top promoter in this country.

By the Associated Prew Carl (Swish) Sawalskf, back at Nashville after an uasuccessful lluig with the Chicago Cubs, has its range on the fences again. The hefty catcher smashed two riome runs off Bao Ferris last night. Bui the blows weren't enough to <iRve the day for the Vols. Birming- iam went on to win, 9-8. However, with the "SwLsh" inching up towards the .360 batting ar- erage he attained last season, the Vols have hopes of rising from their present seventh spot In the standings and maybe getting the pennant they were picked to win. With that short right field fence in Sulphur Dell, Sawatski might make life uncomfortable for opposing pitchers by matching his 1949 feat of batting 45 home rutis.

' j^P If the majority of Big Ten schools 'ants a renewal, a committee will e appointed to confer with Pacific Coast Conference official* on revl- loris. Perhaps Ihe policy-malting faulty fathers will not deem * bare lajority sufficient agreement to go head, They may want a clear-cut tajority. It may not be forthcom- ng. A vigorous foe of the pact, which las made the Rose Bowl a family ffalr between the Pacific Coast nd Western Conference, has been President J. L. Merrill of Minneota. It Is reliably reported he was licked up some new followers. Morrlll supported Michigan State's successful bid in becoming a 'onference member. The Spartans ire eligible to vote In the matter, ilthough they will not play as a conference football member until 953. Whether Michigan State, under the clrcustances, Iwll back Morrill is conjectural. Victories No Incentive The vote was 1 to 2 in favor of signing the contract in November 1946. Nn minnesota and Illinois cast negative ballots. Since 1948, :here have been several changes' in university presidents as well as faculty representatives In the Big 10. Their stand on renewal has not been defined. Although Illinois, M I c h i g «|) Northwestern and Ohio state swej>« to victories over Pacific Coast opponents in the last four bowl engagements .the record is no incentive for unanimous Big Ten sentiment for renewal. If the conference-decides to continue, some sort of compromise will have to be worked out with the Pacific Coast. The three-year clause, which prohibits a Big Ten team from making the Pasadena trip more than once In this period, probably will be reduced to one Pasadena appearance every two years. The Pacific Coast sends IU champion annually. , There are other details which are due for adjustment—such as ticket distribution..
