O and Galesburg, HI., are to be lake] as a gauge of sentiment in the nation-wide poll on Ihe new golf bull the conclusion seems to lie (lint golfers prefer talking to voting. There are at least 15.000 golfers of both sexes in metropolitan Cin cinnati, says Tom Swope. spr.rls editor of the Cincinnati P<i=t, but the total vote cast was less than 300 Tom says: "This doesn't indicate that golf ers are not Interested In the sub ject. It shows they merely were neg ligent about It the same way Amer leans are negligent in many mat ters." Five who voted In the Post' poll advanced the idea that lie irould prefer a ball ol th? nei large size which weighed as nine! as the smaller ball .in use previous to (his year. Five others voted that they would just as soon play one size as the other. - - A total of 54 votes were cast In Javor of the new ball. Against this I 225 golfers voted for tho .old ball. What! No Stamps! Wilbur Rogers, sports editor of the Galesburg Register-Mail, faars 1 the depression has resulted in an economy of postage stamps. • "Either that." writes" Rogers, "or golfers here arc not interested .in .the change from the old ball to the .1931 balloon model. "One dozen players out of an estimated 1000 in Galesburg. -whore •three courses arc kept busy every day and are crowded to capacity on Sundays, returned ballots expressing their opinion. "Ten amateurs voted no on the new ball.' One professional approved the new pellet. One amateur was doubtful. The solicited opinions of two other pros and retailer of golf equipment also were, in favor of the new ball. » « * Six Reasons. ' '"Reasons why golfers opposed the hew ball .were: putts poorly i7); lea distance (4); erratic In flight (5), easily affected by wind (4): fails, te hold on pitch shots (1); absolute!) inferior (3). , . "Among reasons why the nev ball was found satisfactory with th professionals were that it gives bet ter lies on fairway, good on shor shots, helps beginners to learn moi rapidly and makes more careful, ac curst e golfers."'
