Down through the dogwood went Snead and Picard and Guldahl at 8 to 1. Up over (he pine-needled crests went Nelson and Smith and Runay at 12 to 1. Skirting the Azaleas with their flaming bloom went Re- voita and Hogan and Little and Demaret at 20 to 1. All over the lovely course were golfers held at a shorter price than that of the Masters, Jones and Hagen. Coldly, and with no thought of the past, the bookmakers set their price on the men who, not so many springs ago, dominated the fairways of the world. 24 National Titles Jones and Hagen! What a pair! When they teed o££ they had their galleries--Bobby and Walter carried between them 24 national championships. In their glorious days, when youth was theirs, they conquered the fairways of St. Andrews, tawed the traps oE Holy- okc, mastered the winds of Muir- field, fought off the blistering suns of Interlachen and Winged Foot. And that's not all. In their swagger days Bob and Walter tamed the treacherous greens oE Oakmont, rode rough shod through the rough at Marion, and blasted pars and birdies from the sands of Preslwick and Scioto. Seven British opens fell before them. Six times their names were written on the U. S. open cup. In the fierce hand to hand struggle that is the P. G. A. tournament Walter five times triumphed. In the bitter, sudden death battles of the U. S. and British amateur Bob six times sounded the rebel yell in, the locker room. ^ · · ^ Bowed Only Once In 30 P. G. A. matches, against tile greatest golfers in the world, Hagen bowed but once. In his heyday Jones was even money against the field, and it didn't matter what the field. He was the one to beat, and he was the one seldom beaten. Today they went out at 50 to 1. The moving finger that the Persian wrote about has written against them. Time has marched on. And they haven't kept step with the youngsters who fell alongside the ever marching man with the scythe. Younger shoulders have mure power, younger eyes keener sight, younger ambitions more incentive. Fifty to one! Roll back a feu- ears off the Augusta course, let bloom again the dogwood of yesteryear, and Walter and Bob--Walter in silk shirt and knickers, Bob in his soft sweaters and flannels--would be odds on favorites against the field. But Never Surrender Just nine years ago, on the eve of his drive for the grand slam, Jones met the stars of the field that strokes. And nine years before Hagen stood supreme. Bookie, give me some of that 50 to 1. They may die in this tournament, but they won't surrender « J o p v r ! c h l , JOSH, By U n i l t d P r e s * ) Co-Champions in League Decker Brothers' girls n . e re co-champions with the Hamilton School of Commerce m the Y. \v.
