C. HOMER HOPKINS' Tho same sentiment In different ords was voiced also by James raid, 63 years old and playing golf lost of them. "I would be almost mposslble to keep the 8-lnch hole in onditlon," Braid said. "The larger alls would crumble, causing endless rouble to the greenskeeper. If any- hlng the hole should be smaller." Charles Whltcombe, the Ryder Cup autaln In 1931, joining the oldsters in leir criticism, said, "Sarazen's SUK- estlon is absurd. The golf hole is ust right now. Don't inker with It."

Noble's Maricopa High School basketball team met Coach Paul Wise's \Vasco cagers in tho Maricopa gymnasium with tho local boys coining out victorious in two out of three tilts, losing only tho C class, or lightweight, game. In the first game of the evening the Wasc-o Lightweights nosed out tho Maricopa representatives by a score of 24-18. Lowe playng left guard for Wasco was the' outstanding defensive player of the game while his team- inatr, Voth, starred at the left forward position accounting for 10 of the points for the winners. He was high point man for Wasco. In tho B class or middleweight division tho locals outplayed their opponents In every department of the fume, rolling up 20 points and allow- ng Wasco only nine during the game. Eubanks at center for Maricopa was the key man of the local team's offensive onslaught while much of the credit for the low score of their opponents goes to Kenny Payne for his outstanding defensive work. * In tho A class game Warner, M. Moore and Eubunks were largely responsible for Maricopa's 20 to 13 victory In this division. This combination functioned smoothly and effec- tively and promises to carry tho team on to conference honors. The games last night wore tho second of tho conference playoff. Last week Maricopa met McFarland in that city and returned home with throe games to their credit. The lineups: C Class Maricopa (18) Pos. D. Flake 5) F. Frazler (4) F. Cherry (6) C. K. Varley (2) G.

The hip action Is almost the whole of pivoting, since when they turn properly the pivot becomes automatic. The casual golfer Is too loose through tho hips. This does not Imply looseness uf muscle or freedom from tension, which are desirable Icondition.-), but does Imply looseness of action or movement which, when It is in the wrong llrectlon, Is anything but desirable. This looseness of action means, in most oases, too much movement of tho lips back and forth. This is com- rionly called lateral hip action.

Ball Directors to Consider Admission (Associated Frets Leased Wire) SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28.—Direct- ore of the Pacific Coast League meet here today to struggl« with a number of problems Including a proposed reduction In baseball bleacher admissions from DO tu 25 cents. Tho proposal was given advance support by Joe Bcarwald, president of the San Francisco Missions, who de- lared It was necessary under present economic conditions. Charley Graham of the San Francisco Seals, A. Robert Miller uf Oakland and Oscar Uelchow of Los Angeles were reported in favor of allowing each club to settle tho (|iieutioii for ita own town. Other club representatives wero noncominittul or understood to be opposed to tho proposal. fNTEHEST is focused on two *• scheduled appearances of the J. C. L. A. freshman quintet here ,hl8 week-end, against the high ichuol Drillers Friday evening, and ho junior college Renegades Saturday. The games are being sponsored hy the Bakersfield Lions' lub, arrangements having been made to turn over all returns above actual expenses to tho Llona' Club milk fund. It will mark the fourth meeting between tho Bakersfield High quintet and the IJruin frosh, the Drillers hav- ng onco defeated and twice lost to :ho culleglanH In previous seasons. Tho local Ttenegadis will bo going against tho Cubs for tho first time. Uoastlni? the strongest squad In years, the U. C. L. A. freshmen are. planning a. thorough cleanup of Kern county. They have scheduled a game, with Taft Junior College for Thursday, and so will play three nights in a row. Whether the Bruins succeed In making a clean sweep or not, prospects arc for tho best series of basketball games seen here to date. Defeated Compton Local fans In general and junior college backers In particular will remember the appearance of the Compton J. c. quintet against the Renegades just before Christmas. Tha Compton boys that night looked entirely too good for any competition In this part of tho state. Then camo word (hat the U. C. L. A. freshmen had tuV-en Compton In stride, and a fairly easy stride at that. Both high school and junior college teams of liakersfleld, however, havo shown sufficient advancement stnco then to warrant the assumption that they will give tho Bruins a run for the money. Coach Peterson's Jaysees, after dropping a hard-fought game to U. C. L. A.'s elder brothers at Berkeley, staged a comeback Friday to win their first conference game with VI- Halla and will meet the Bruins In top 'firm. Thoy will have to play a second conference game Friday evening, :he night before they go against the Cubs, but Rcedley is not usually as strong a team as the squad defeated by the Hentgades at Vlsalla last week. Meet Wasco A practice game between the Hen- CK.ides and the strong Wasco aggregation Is slated for Tuesday evening in the local gymnasium. Coach Griffith set to work on his Drillers this afternoon, again concentrating on Improving their marksmanship. Just previous to the Taft game last Friday the high school boys showed signs of developing Into a high scoring outfit, but whether they were too closely gunrded or simply thrown out of stride by their strange surroundings at Taft, they couldn't find the basket with a compass. The Bakersfield lightweight and middleweight squads, with no games definitely scheduled, awaited the results of som* long distance telephoning by Ernest Dalbom, high school director of athletics. In hopes that It would mean some form of competition this week. •*- Amateur Boxers to Meet in S. F. Ring (Associated Press Leased Wire) SAN FHANCiaCO, Jan.
