No. THE WORLD Professional Snooker championship which begins tomorrow evening epitomises the confrontation between two generations which is now at the heart of the professional game. The first match is a quarter-final between John Pulman, the holder, and John Spencer. After Rex Williams turned professional in 1951, having won tho English Amateur championship, no one left the amateur ranks until Spencer did so after returning from Karachi as runner-up in the world amateur championship in January last year. But in tho last 21 months, eight amateurs have followed Spencer's example. Some of the new recruits. Including David Taylor, tho 25-year-old Manchester hairdresser who won the world amateur tide in Sydney last month, did not change their status in time to enter the professional championship. Nevertheless, all tour quarterfinals of the world tournament havo produced a clash between tho long- established professionals and the New Wave. Pulman, a bespectacled, tf-ft, 44-year-old Devonian, who now lives at Bromley, has made seven world title defences in the last four years under the challenge system. This has now been scrapped m favour of a knockout tournament because of the general upsurge of interest and the increased financial potential of the game. Guaranteed cash Sponsorship by Players, the tobacco company, who havo put up a guaranteed prize fund of 3,500 for tho championship, means that the new champion is certain to receive 1,300 and may receive almost as much again if the matches achieve their expected success at tho gate. Last season and this, Pulman ties been under contract to Players (who have also poured over 30,000 into the British amateur team championship which was started last year) for a winter of one-night stand exhibitions at clubj for what Is believed to be the highest guarantee ever paid to a snooker professional. Pulman also has a long-standing summer contract with Butiin's holiday camps. Rex Williams, who was sponsored by Haig whiskey for his successful attempt on the world professional billiards championship in New Zealand in August, is currently playing former world professional snooker champion, Fred Davis, in tho 3,000 Watneys Challenge series over eight weeks in 40 British clubs. Spencer, a 33-year-old ex-costing clerk from Manchester, beat Pulman 17-14 in a non-title match at CoLne in May. Tho longer distance of 49 frames is in the champion's favour hut nothing less than his best will be good enough to get him through to the semi-final in February, almost certainly against Rex Williams (Birmingham), who should comfortably dispose of Bernard Bennett, a new professional from Southampton, in a quarter-final which starts at Southampton Monday week. In his fifties In the other half, tho odds favour a semi-final between Gary Owen, who turned professional last year, and Fred Davis, a former champion and the only competitor in his fifties. The 38-year-old Owen has an MBB, but nothing in financial terms, to show for an outstanding amateur career in which ho twice won tho world amateur championship. Married, with four children, he is In a sense the hungriest player In the field. Last Monday, he mado the maximum break of 147 (15 reds, 15 blacks and all the colours) in an unofficial game, end ho Should be too good for the Irish champion, Jack Rea, at Stratford-on-Avon Hippodrome, 25-28 November. Tho remaining quarter-final between tho 1964 amateur champion, Ray Reardon (Stoke), said Fred Davis (Lisa, Hampshire) will not be played until January as Reardon is touring South Africa, hut there, is no doubt that Davis sees this championship as a chance to escape from the shadow of his elder brother Joe hi a way which never seemed possible before Joe's retirement None of tho professionals is short of mental toughness but they all affirm, with almost affectionate admiration, that Davis, outwardly the most relaxed of men, is the toughest of them all John Pulman Spencer will stretch him. Lester the diplomat GEORGE BERNARD SHAW began his first lecture to the American people : ' Dear boobs.' Promptly the staid New York Times came back next morning with its leader : ' Mrs George Bernard Shaw arrived in America, Mrs George Bernard Shaw went to the theatre, Mrs George Bernard Shaw went here, Mrs George Bernard Shaw went there, and everywhere Mrs George Bernard Shaw went she was accompanied by her husband, a writer.' The aggressive antagonism of the American sporting Press, almost without exception, to the victory of Lester Piggott in the Washington International reminded mo of this well-deserved reproof to Bernard Shaw. ' Knocking Piggott seems to be the fashion at Laurel' was the masterly understatement of one writer. But Lester Piggott handled tho American Press with the utmost diplomacy, both before and after the race. And the fact that he was entirely successful in what he came out to do was only mentioned once in six articles. English Journalists are rightly attacked for pampering jockeys and for not being sufficiently critical of them.

You can say what you want in print about a politician, an industrialist a cricketer or a footballer, but a jockey is sacrosanct ' If his lips are moving he is lying,' is okay for a politician, ,but ' il his bottom is in the air he's not trying ' about a jockey must be censored. There must be a subtle difference. The quotes used by some of tho American writers would never have been in English papers because they denote ignorance rather than criticism. ' He (Piggott) rode like a bum,' said ono jockey, reported to have won an International, to a writer on the Evening Sun. A capable American jockey said to 1 Washington Post reporter: "That was the worst ride I've ever seen. He was running up horses' rear ends all the wav round. He should a won by 15 lengths.' A journalist said: ' If u a ; ; i . K l crucified.' Gerald Strine of the Washington Post went back to" tho past ' He came up the hard way, overcoming speech and hearing impediments, etc., etc., and he ended his piece: 'He also nearly got the best horse beaten.' What would they have said if they had seen the finish of the Derby? ' He Sayed Sir Ivor from the eight-rurlong pole to the winning-post,' said another writer. Apparently a waiting race in America is an unpardonable crime for any jockey. One of his best Compare tbe English reading of the race with the American. There would appear tor be two entirely different races. Vincent O'Brien came down strongly on the side of one of Lester's best races because ne la not usea to ridine over such a cramped course. Perhaps Vincent was prejudiced. Then who wasn't one way or another? -At eveiT stage throughout the race. Lester had Sir Ivor in touch with the leaders even when he was last No one realised better than Lester that no horse could go along from the tart and keep it up on that going. He knew half the field would bt flniihed" before'the itniight and if was merelv-a. matter of avoiding them as they dropped back.- Ho know his horse bad be tter nnuning speea man any other member or tne neld. He also knew, hit horse Idles if sent to the front too soon. Lester's final ace. played lce-coouy and executed brilflantty, was .to balance his horse Immediately- he entered the straight and before he asked him forfhis'effort.. Kwk a fewt EnElisK-. auppotters quivered here," but' how many races are lost by starting to ride the. finish before the norso lioaianceor rxone of these things were apparently taken into account by the American writers. - Confident Knmrfne iLester and Sir Ivor was an essential -to enjoying this race. At every stage I was comment mat Lester-was exacuy,.wicie.,i wuwu to be. '"Who' can risk for;more? To be'quito iair to the American Press, they have nad,1ittle chance to size up Lester personally or; professionally. Where they have heard 'rumours they have 'fallen' into the trap of preferring the bad rather, than; the good. ' rln s6;doihgfi'they have missed-the wjidle pdint;of:the triprr-on the right horse Lester-isi-'aimosi. invinciDie uu any course. EngUshmen may yet gain, for the next time Lester goes out to Tirln ntTiaurel iio American journalist .will have the 1 effrontery to tip his mount. By winning the .Washington International, Sir Ivor has added at least another i-efSOO.OOOi.. to s his .-value. Apart .from .the English Derby and the. .IJrix ,de J' Arc , de. Triomphe, no race "jn'the'world run on grass has greater prestige'ivalUe, as far, .as . the international "bloodstock market is concerned. " Possibly Vaguely Noble and. Sir Ivor are among the-best five horses to race since the war. They are both retiring at thet their; fame, thanks to circumstances of-'an entirely different! nature. Vaguely Noble is being syndicated at S5 million, a world record for a stallion to date. We are proud that the winner of The Observer Gold Cup should be valued so highly but what would have happened if he had not come for sale a year ago ? Vaguely Noble would have gone into Dick Hern's stable with the other Holliday horses. He would have had the virus like them all and might well have been out for the season, with his ability untapped. Sir Ivor, in most ownerships, would have been retired at one stage or another after one of hii four defeats in a row. It is not generally known that during the summer the famous Irish vet, Mr Griffin, diagnosed his lameness as originating from the Derby at Epsom and this may have been the cause of his defeat in the Irish Sweeps. Derby and the Eclipse Stakes. He was given a long rest after this race, though as Vincent said, the lameness was not serious. Instead Mr Raymond Guest and Vincent O'Brien plodded on, never giving up. They finished with victories in the Champion Stakes and the International at Washington, chiefly because Mr Guest wanted to have some fun with his horse. He also established his horse with an incredible value and a unique place in turf history a winner of top class races in Ireland, England, France and America. In different ownerships the careers of both these great horses would have been vastly different Take the case of Charlottown last year. After his only defeat as a four-year-ofld in the Grand Prix de Saint Cloud (Vaguely Noble was also defeated in this race) Charlottown was promptly retired to John eraser's fully illustrated account of The Observer's third Singlehanded Transatlantic Race was published by Ward, Lock & Co. last week at 30s. It Is available at all booksellers. It will be reviewed In The , Observer next Sunday by Sir Francis Chichester, winner of the first Singlehanded Trans-' atlantic Race in 1960. stud, never able to redeem his repti1 tation. His syndication suffered accordingly and shares became difficult to dispose of towards the end at the expected figure. - Charlottown lost because of the heat and the firm ground. The rains came later and the Oxfordshire Stakes at Newbury would have been at his mercy. Then if he could not have beaten Topyo in the Prix de 1'Arc de Triomphe my reading of the form book is sadly amiss. Even a narrow defeat here would have held his value well above what it had been in the unsaddling enclosure on Derby Day the year before. I bring this up again because the contrasts in the handling of Sir Ivor and of Charlottown should be stamped in large letters on every owner's study wall.

Stackpole was 109 not out when bad light brought an early close, with Victoria 192 for four wickets. Earlier, the West Indians, resuming at 321 for nine, were all out for 401 after an exciting last-wicket stand of S3 in 87 minutes between Hall and Edwards. Fast bowler Griffith was in his best form of the lour so far when Victoria battered. He dismissed Test openers La wry and Redpath to leave the State on 56 for two. Redpath edged a waist high catch to third slip where Carew accepted the chance well. But Stackpole, who had come in at No. 3, quickly settled down and reached 50 from only 51 deliveries. He and Sheahan shared a promising Edwards removed Sheahan.
