Tomorrow the semi-finalists will go 36 holes and another 36-hole match will decide the championship Saturday. Three matches went to the 22nd hole Wednesday afternoon.

Bill Burns a chicken farmer from Kirkland, Wash., blasted Sikes in the afternoon with a four- under-par performance through 14 holes. Not many have even matched the 37-34—71 par on the 6,400-yard West Seattle layout. BIG BUMP—Pee Wee Reese, right, and Left Fielder George Shuba shouldn't be mistaken for ballroom dancers. They got this way bumping into each other going after the Giants' "Wes Westrum's pop fly at Ebbets Field. Despite the mixup, the Dodger shortstop managed to make the catch.
