JONES', WETHERED'S PLAY IS UNORTHODOX FILM PRE-VIEWS REVEAL AGES DO NOT PLAY RIGHT Golf. Pros Are Astonished at Breaks Shown in Ultra- Slow Movies. By PATH. MICKELSON CHICAGO, March 21. Wi-- Many professionals, who have been teaching: duffera how and when not to swing- their, golf clubs may have some explaining to do this summer when the ultra-slow movies of those two aces of golf, Bobby Jones and Joyce Wethered, are exhibited in their home town clubg. For the movies, to be shown by the Professional Golfers' association of America, will convince Mr. and Mrs. Duffer that not even their pro knows everything- about the royal and ancient game, and that, in three s t ar tl i n g -instances they were wrong. ' Pros Astonished at Film As a group of well known Chicago pros watched^ the preview of the slow movies in the anteroom of the P. G. A., there were expressions of astonishment and chagrin. "Well, I'll be a baked golf ball," mused Alex Pirie of Chicago, former president of the P. G. A., and a well known teacher of golf- since 1898. "Did you see what" I saw? Why, neither Bobby nor Miss Wethered broke their wrists on the back swing until the club head has traveled approximately one-third of the way. And did you notice how Bobby hesitates at the top of his swing- to shift his body and get planted before he brings the club head back again? And did you notice that neither Miss Wethered or Bobby broke their wrists at the point of impact with the ball as most of us have been teaching for all these years? Well, I'll be doggoned; Let's take another look at them." See Startling Revelations The most startling revelation gained by the pros from the Jones and Wethered pictures was their action at the top of the swing. The commonly accepted style waa that the first action at the top of the swing was made with the hands to start the club back. Miss Wethered and Bobby, however, pause at that point, bring around their hips and plant their left heel firmly to the ground, thus getting an, early pivot and fixing a fulcrum, which combines to give great power and the finest timing. The switch eliminates any appreciable sway. . 3 . For years, golf teachers have been their feiipilS; .that the BE-GAZETTE MASON CITY, IOWA, MARCH 24 1931 INDEPENDENTS WIN Y. W.

Miss Wethered brings her club almost two-fifths of the way back without a wrist break. Styles Are "Unorthodox" The third "unorthodox" style of the two champions is at the impact of the ball. "Snap_ your wrists when the club head connects with the ball," the pros have taught with stentorian voices. But Bobby and Joyce go thru steadily without a break. Not until their follow ' thru is almost horizontal again with the ground is a ' break noticeable. BOXING THURSDAY, MARCH 26 AT ARMORY 42 --ROUNDS --42 Auspices Am.

Pete Horgan, ball captain of TAGGED "FIRE BALL KING" · By JACK SOBDS * Walter Johnson, the old Fire Ball King 1 , having hurled Washington to two American league pennants hopes this year to reach even greater heights of fame by piloting the Senators to their third flag. This is Johnson's third season at the helm of his old club. Johnson was born In the little town of Humboldt, Kans., Nov. 6, 1887. He was just a kid in his middle teens when his pitching attracted attention. A Washington scout saw him and signed the 20-year-old ·Ind,-Tvho joined thc-Senators-in the closing- flays of the-1907 race.- : In 1910 he found himself and won 25 games. For the next 10 seasons Johnson won 20 or more games a season. Johnson's blinding speed gave him the nickname of the Fire Boll King, and his large,' powerful frame the tag by which lie Is better known, the Blcr Train. Johnson reached the peak of his great career by W'nnintr 36 of 43 games in 1913. That year he fanned 243 batters, allowed only 38 bases on balls and was touched for only 1.09 runs a game. Johnson's pitching career closed in 1027, when he retired as an active player after 21 years' service on tho big league mound. He went to Newark as manager for 1928, and the following year camo to Washington as pilot to lead the club.for which he pitched every one of his 802 major league games. T, N. T.

By ALAN GOULD BRADENTON, Fla., March 24 Iff) --If pitching, as a number of the expert witnesses maintain, is anywhere from 50 to 75 per cent of the battle, the St. Louis Cardinals will start the defense of their National league crown without much to worry about. The strong impression made by the Red Birds in their month of training here has been due largely to the wealth of twirling talent paraded by Manager Gabby Street foi all and sundry to gaze at and admire. Varsity Pitching Kates. The freshman class in Cardina curving will be distributed among the "chain store" teams for addl ttonal seasoning. The varsity look; gobd -enough.-to'-keep- the Red Bird, in full flight all the way. Street has two weather-beaten veterans in Burleigh Grimes and Jesse Haines, each 38 years old, bu showing- few, if any, signs of weak cning. He has one of the game'., fastest southpaws in Wild Willlair Hallahan and a · powerful righ lander in Flint Rehm. He has two sensational newscomsrs in Jerome ;Dizzy) Dean and Paul Derringer. "Imagine," remarked a rival manager, "picking up pitchers iike Dean and Derringer to add to one of the finest pitching staffs in either major league'. Slated ( for Runaway. "The Cardinals won the pennant without them last year. It these two youngsters deliver, as Street has every reason to expect they will, it is conceivable that St. Louis will make a runaway of the race." The Cardinals have a wealth of fine reserves in other departments of play. To make doubly sure about the infield help, they have recalled the ' diminutive Andy High, whose pinch-hitting had a lot to do with the team's strong finish last season To show, also, that they respect age as well as youthful promise, th Cards recalled Miguel (Mike) Gon zales, the lanky 38-year-old Cuban for catching service. Street May Set Record. Gabby Street, if he continues to produce results, may set n. new record for length of service as a Cardinal manager. His methods have won full approval and his leadership has won the confidence of the players. EXHIBITION BASEBALL By ASSOCIATED TRESS. BRADENTON, Fla.--St. Louis (N) 9; Philadelphia (N) 7.
