LINCOLN EVENING JOUKNAL. SATUIJDAY. SEPTEMBER 18, 1937. FIVE SPORTLlGtlT N EW YORK.-- The $12,000 golf tournament over the Belmont course at Boston next \\eek is one of the few chances offered a star pro to play for fairly important money. As a rule, you'll sec wheic the leading tournament win'ieis of the year- such as Harry Cooper, Ralph Guldahl. Henry Pirard and a few others-- are collecting from J5.000 to £8.000 from the prize money in the long list of tournt- men's wheie the winner must beat at least 20 or 30 starts and a large number who are possible stars at a given spot. Against this,- Fred Perry and Ellsworth Vines can make around $75,000 or more a year playing tennis. The mam answer is that only three or four tennis players are ever drawing cards, while the field is packed with crack golfers. Golf is also a hard game to follow, with a five mile cross country , jaunt for the 18 holes There are too many different winners in golf thru too many tournaments to hulld enough dramatic moments. So whrn a S12.000 show comes along, with at least $3,000 for the winner, you have ·omethinp worth while. Three thousand dollars doesn't compare with the cash JOB Louis or Tommy Fan- or Fred Perry gets, but it is a full step above the normal cash to be taken in from golf for any single joust. The time isn't far away when you'll see tournaments played for $15,000, or even S25.000, where the winner will get a much better financial break than he has known before. THE DIFFERENCE. B OBBY JONF,S, in 1830, after his grand slam, could have rnacle $100.000 or more from a country wide tour. The answer is that, in 1930, there was only one Bobby Jones m golf. Today, you have Cooper. Guldahl, Horton "smith. Jimmy Thomson, Gene Sarazen, Homy Picard, Walter Hagen, Bel Dudley and a great many more who can play fine golf. 'These will all he at Belmont next week. In the lecent amateur tennis championship, you knew in advance that Donald Budge and Baron Von Cramm would move along tc the final bracket. But try to name the winner at Belmont --or the first five--or the first ten. Why are golf and tennis form so diffeicnt? Here is one answer. At 72 holes, the winner will take around 285 shots. In a tennis test, Budge may use up 5,000 strokes. Tennis is played in a small, restricted area where every square foot is about the same. It takes 140 or 150 acres of terrain to handle golf, where the element of luck is terrific--especially around the greens. E L E M E N T OF GAMENESS. COMEONE brought up the ques- "J tion at Forest Hills a few days ago as to whether such games as tennis and golf really call for any courage or gameness--as compared with boxing or football wheio the element of physical punishment enters.

DALLAS, Tex.--One needs only .D scan the list of major intersectional panics to be convinced that the college elevens of Dixie feel very able now to take care of themselves in competition with those from any other part of the map. The schedule looks like a resumption of the Civil war. with a few side skirmishes thrown in between color bearers from rival conferences below the Mason and Dixon line. North of this boundary, the stalwart gridmen of the southwest will take on U. C. L A., Manhattan, Ohio State, Fordham, Detroit, Duquesne and Creighton. Southeastern circuit teams will vie with Duquesne, Villa Nova, Holy Cross, Chicago, Manhattan, Boston college. Temple, and Colgate, and i.hose of the unwieldy Southern Intercollegiate Athletic association will meet Colgate, Pitt, N. Y. U., Fordharn, Boston college, Manhattan, Princeton, Navy, Temple, Army, Harvard and Catholic U. The individual circuit championships? On paper they loom as the wildest scrambles in their history, brimful of headaches for the coaches and dopesters. In the three major conferences of the south- land, the competition is so keen and the teams so well balanced that almost any member could lead the parade home in each division. There is not at this time, in my opinion, any part of the country in which football strength is aa evenly distributed as in the Southwest and Southeastern conferences. Meet All Members. Here In the Southwest conference, composed of seven schools, we have an ideal arar.gement, with each team meeting all other six members and the schedules evenly divided as to home and road games. Unquestionably, the defending champion University of Arkansas Razorbacks and the Texas Aggies rate the call on paper. Both had fine teams last year and suffered few losses. The Porkers still have their 1936 offense, with Jack Robbins, one of the finest passers and field generals in the country, Sloan and Rawlins in the backfield and those sensational pass snatching «ingmen, Hamilton and Benton. Coach Thomsen has some good material corning up to fill the few slots that need plugging. Arkansas Biff Jones* Husker Grid Team Facing Slate Drawn With Box Office Cravou Believe Usual Letdown Not to Follow Nebraska's Coaching Change. BY W H I T N E Y MARTIN. Associated Press Writer. The three deep line on the field is fine, but the four deep line in his brow, caused by speculating on which way the backfield will ;o when the shooting starts is ausing Major Lawrence "Biff" ones no end of worry as he pre- ares his Nebraska football team or a schedule drawn with a box ffice crayon. The Biffer is starting his first ear at Nebraska, and certain fac- ors lead to the belief the Huskers vill not suffer the usual one or wo year letdown usually follow- Jig the advent 01* a new tutor. Usually, he points out, a new oach appears as the old coach is isappearing over .1 hill in a cloud f dust, with sr orting alumni bout five steps behind, and the ob is to scrap the old system vhich proved a failure and start rom scratch. Jones came to N :braska when ootball was at its peak. The "ana Bible regime hi d been highly uccessfui, and alun _ni and fans ·ere quite complacent. Only M i n o r Changes. Consequently, Jones has had to lake only minor changes to con- orm with his own idras, and the lew system fits the slayers like a glove. They are just moving .long in approximately the same jroove as last year, w hich spells trouble for opponents, -despite the act the team lost two ace backs. The Biffer, not giver, to undue iptimism when discussing: his cam's prospects, fidge .s around and finally admits he '.an't find any fault with his line. Six sen- ors and one junior mal e up the jotential first string forwards, and ·eplacements are so plen Jful End Coach Harold Browne loaied Paul Amen, a good end, to tl is back- ield. The line swells both ways from doubtless have one of the have seen star football crack wide open tin u greatest elevens in its history.

John Richartison at the other end is a comparative Lilliput at 179 pounds. The guards aren't so big, but they have necessary speed. Bob Mehring weighs only 167, and Lowell English 188. The problem is the backfield, where three regulars are missing. Johnny Ho well, a good quarterback, is the only man returning: from that yard eating quartet of 1936. The backs will be fast, but lack the sheer power, as well as the experience, of last years' ball toters The present first string backs are Howell, Jack Dodd, Harris Andrews and Eldon Mcllravy, a 178 pound sophomore who must hop into Sam Francis' shoes. Backs Hard Workers. "They are fine boys and hard workers, but I don't know what they will do under fire," Jones says. "Mcllravy, I think, will be a fine defensive player. Dodd and Andrews both are fast. Andrews can kick and pass, and Dodd, a southpaw, also can pass a little. "They aren't big men, like Cardwell and Francis, but their quick reactions may make up for lack of height on pass defense." The Biffer sees no soft spots on the schedule and in the Big; Six has more than usual respect for Missouri and Oklahoma, the school he coached last year. "Don't sell Oklahoma short," he warns. "They have a spraddle legged sophomore named Red McCarthy who is a whizz." As for Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Indiana and the rest, Jones just shrugs, which may mean anything, but he will admit one thing. His Husker may lose, but they'll be in there pitching. It's that kind of a school. lleds' Pilot Runs: J. Moore. Football SCORES STATE HIGH SCHOOL. 5eno» 32, Polk 6. IVrmore 6.

Considerable concern was felt in the varsity camp, however, over the report that Bill Callihan, fullback candidate from Grand Is^ land, might be' ineligible.

"He's tough as a steer," said I^orzine, a veteran hack who packs 217 pounds, all of it musicle. "Early n the game I put a flying block on him that knocked him ten yards It was my Grade A, all-I-got block. I hit him so hard I damn neai stunned myself. And all he says as he jumps up is 'Say, fellow, you keep on blocking that way and they'll give you your varsity letter.' Then he grins at me." Steve Owen, coach of the Giants, and a man who has been around football since the days when no selfrespecting triple threat man would dare appear on the field without his handlebar moustache, voiced even higher praise than his players.

The returning lettermen are Lahse, Herzberg, Wied, Tiemann, Richter and Leutheuser. Others who v.ill undoubtedly see action include Kirch, Nau, Pohlman, Baeder, Link, Ban- Friedman never saw the day he could throw strikes with Sammy. And Benny was nobody's monkey with that ball. We were all set for him in that game with Washington, but he completed 12 out of 18, and the six failures weren't his fault." Owen frankly admitted that he couldn't see, right at the moment, j how any team in the league figured j to stop Sammy's passes. j "You see," he said, "Sammy. throws that ball so fast and so accurately that there is little or no chance of knocking it down. And his anticipation and timing is perfect. Even when he is being rushed by two or three men he seems to know just the moment when the receiver is going to get that extra step on the defender, and make a cut Then he lets fly. and, just the split second thc receiver cuts and turns, there's the ball right in front of him. That stuff about him throwing a ball so hot it can't be handled is foolishness. I\l like to have him. I'd just put mitts on the other fellows and tell 'em to go out there and catch " Art Rooney Picks Winners. To change the subject a bit, one of thc passengers on the Giants' special was Art Rooney, owner of PIC Pittsburgh club. Right now Mr. Rooney is the mcr celebrated hoss-playor in the country. You undoubtedly have read how Mr., starting with a thousand dollar bill at the first Belmont meeting this year, has been driving the bookmakers slightly insane with his luck at picking winners I asked him how he stood for the season and, after a careful study of t h e little red memorandum book in which he records his wins and losses, he admitted to being in the neighborhood of §200,000 ahead. "I had a bad day at Aqueduct the other day," he said. "Lost $40,000 on one race. Went overboard on a 3 to 5 shot" I inquired the name nf the hoss that betrayed him so badly. Mr. Rooney, for the life of him, couldn't remember. Mr. Rooney said thc only thing that bothered him these days hedging b lellows who made the wrong bets earlier and are trying to cover." Doyle isn't yet ready to quote a world senes price until the National league race is over. "The Giants will be a shorter price than the Cubs." said Doyle. "Those who bet on baseball, fiff- jre that the Giants will ha Mi a better chanco than the Cubs to stop U.o Yankees." The Giants moved one game nearer the pennant Friday by holding- their three and one-half game lead with a 6-3 victory over Cincinnati. At the same time they got a lot of bad baseball out of their system--Dick Bartell making: three errors and Johnny McCarthy one. Harry Gumbert limited the Reds to fi\e hits. New York collected 13 hits off Paul Derringer. Cubs Out of Slump. Charlie Grimm shook the Cuba out of their slump by juggling his lineup. Augie Galan and George Stainback were benched, Rip Collins, out with a broken leg for a month, went back to first. Phil Cavaretta shifted to left field, and Joe Marty took over center. The new combination slugged out a 10-2 victory over the Phir.ies. Larry French allowed only five hits, winning his 14th game. Johnny Mize's homer with a man on in the eighth, bioke up a pitchers' duel between Si Johnson and Lou Fette and gave the Cardinals a 2-0 win over thc Boston Bees. Johnson allowed six hits, Fette eight. Pittsburgh slugged Brooklyn lor 10-4 victory, getting 13 Inta off Hamlm and Marrow. Eci B r a n d t scoied his 10th victory in beftling his former teammates. H a l e a n d Solters. Bad News Hale and Moose Sol- ters ruined Buck Nowsom's three hit pitching peiformance as Cleveland beat the Red Sox, 4-1. Hale hit a homer alter Haulers had tripled and Campbell walked to break a 1-1 tie. Solteis 1 homer had previously tied the score. Johnny Allen hung up his 12th etiaight victory, yielding only four hit^. The other Amei ican games were rained out.
