Chicago Golf Tussle to Have Pot of Gold CHICAGO, (ff)--Chicago will brighten the summer campaign of the boys who. pi ay golf for a living with an open tournament that may offer as much as §10,000 in prize money. The event," 72 holes of . meda] play, will be staged in June by the Chicago District Golf association, probably the week following the national open title battle at the Oakland Hills Country club near Detroit. The open will be played June 10-12, and" the C. D. G. A. board of directors, which approved the plan last night, figures -to catch the championship field on the first bounce. Applmg Has Boosted Salary, But Enough: 1 CHICAGO, (/P)--Luke Appling, the major league batting champion in 1936, has a salary 'increase coming, Owner 3. Louis Comiskey of the Chicago White Sox, agrees, ··-but they _are having a little trouble getting together on the size of the boost. Appling, who played shortstop and topped both major leagues in hitting with a .388 average, has made his asking price §20,000 for 1937. He received about $12,000 last year. Comiskey thinks a contract calling for $15,000 and a bonus clause which might raise the figure to 517,500, is about right. . ""·· The bonus will depend on how good a season the Sox have at the gate.

SHOP STRUCTURE I Piers, Cilumns May Be Used as Points of Vantage in New Plans. In the modernization of stores, shops, or other commercial establishments, structural o b s t a c l e s which interfere with good store layout frequently are encountered. These may be piers or columns which cannot be removed without major structural changes, as they represent building supports. . If they can be eliminated without endangering the safety of the place of business, their removal is advisable for increasing space. If not, they may be converted into points of vantage and become assets rather than liabilities. Attractive- mirrors to please customers, reflect light, and enlarge the vista may be attached to them with good effect. Shelves or shuw cases may be built around them for display merchandise. Awkward angles and corners that cannot be eliminated may often be converted into special departments or wash rooms or else be used for storage, repair, or workrooms. Varying floor levels are difficult to overcome. Where they occur, ramps should be installed; or f this is not possible, broad 'lights of steps ' with adequate handrails may be used. In addition to improving ithe .ooks of the store, accident hazards are removed by making these changes. Modernization of stores, shops, and commercial establishments may be accomplished by use of the federal housing administration program. Fate Follows Groove. WILLOUGHBY, Ohio, (UP)-Two years ago J. F.

Finn Registers Win i Over Texas'Butcher NEW : YORK, (UP)--Gunnar Garlund of Finland, one of the most promising of the younger heavyweights, Wednesday night registered his fourth straight American victory by winning an easy 10 round decision over Tom Beaupre, lanky Texas butcher boy, at the hippodrome.
