FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE. MARCH 4 Hri937' GLOBE-GAZETTE 'SPORTS BUDGE, HUSKY BOAT IN LEAD Two Champions Stand Ou ~ as Favorites to Come Through.This Year. (NOTE: This Is the second of two .stories showing how a group of the country's Icsdlnc sports editors forecasts the outcome of this year's prlnct- *· pal sports events. It covers (be .ama* leur half of the picture.) : By ALAN GOULD NEW YOHK, (ff) -- The only thing red-headed Don Budge and the University of Washington's varsity crew have" in common is that they are expected to mop lip the competition, from west to east in this year's sporting soiree. They are the nearest to unanimous choices in a poll of the country's leading sports editors, taken by the Associated Press for a consensus forecast on 1937 events. Exactly 42 out of 46 experts, representative of all shades of athletic thought, selected Budge to consolidate his No. 1 ranking this year by capturing the United States tennis championship. WASHINGTON--TO WIN! Taking to the water, but'keep- ing afloat, 40 out of 44 named Washington to repeat in the four- mile varsity classic at PougHkeep- sie. . . · · , ; Otherwise, on } amateur fronts, sports editors pick the United States to regain the-Davis Cup, International Tennis trophy; Harold S. Vanderbilt's · Ranger to turn back the America's cup challenge of Endeavor II in yachting; Johnny Goodman to displace Johnny Fischer as national amateur golf king, and Helen Jacobs to oust blond Alice Marble.from the women's national tennis heights. · Sharp divisions of opinion reflected the uncertainty with which the outcome is regarded at several major points. Taken as a ' whole the experts believe 1937 will be a bad year for champions. Two exceptions involve the events to be conducted on tidal waters, where Vanderbilt and Washington are the choices to repeat. FOLLOW PRO TREND This follows the trend on the professional side, where the balloting reported .Wednesday showed the New 'York Yankees, in the American league, to be the only favorite among titleholders. Only three out of 47 sports editors named 1 England as likely to retain the Davis Cup without Fred Perry. It may be patriotic enthusiasm, but the U. S. A. is a thin choice over Germany, 17 to 16.
