Why Golfers Grl niue When It Rains That heart- rending complaint registered In the uiiper octaves bj Bessie, the night club blond, nbom being so blue when it rains,, is beginning to be lieard here and there among the men who play golf for money. Thc reason Is Denny Sliutc. a. youtiB man from Columbus, O., who 'goes along singln' and playln' in the rain al a pace $o swiri and sure lhat ihere isn't much money left for the othevs atler he gets al! through. Mr. Shulo collects thc piirso and all lhat the rest, of the putlsmcn get Is wet. It-rained In the Los Anyeles open. Shule wallowed around in a way thnt was beautiful to vvalch, while the rest of thc clan couldn't sce'ip to'get. that ball up to the pin. At the cud there he wns, high nnd wcl In first place while some of Ihe others didn't even finish. 'It rained..In Texas, where Mr. Shulo sloshed around In 277 to win the Lone Star open. Your correspondent Investigated. Why could Mr. Shut* play so much betler Ulan other golfers, in the rain- Maybe the explanation rests In one shot that Shut* can make batter than anybody else we ever have seen with a golf club In his hand. That Is the high -pitch to the gran where there Is 100 to 160 yards to cover. Denny pitches his ball high en. this shot and If tlio green'is hard, there are times when it bounces and rolls, When the ground is wet the ball drops with a thud and stays put. That Is the reason why golfers who play their approaches for n bounce and roll to the green get that blue feeling when they p!nv In the rain with Shute. A Point About Iowa Iowa, alter being spanked for getting caught, hns been duly reinstated by the Big Ten. Mennvrhtle the dozen or more athletes declared ineligible that Iowa might be called holy again have been cast, in the roles of villains. Iowa has been absolved, bul thos" pursc-snalchlng bandits who led lo her downfall—what has become ot them? Have they been sent to Devil's Island? Have they been 1 hanged as yet? If not. by all" means the Big Ten has left something undone in this matter. The dozen or more de.spCT.itc characters, we mean, who accepted loans as high as tas (rom the "un- oniclal fund"—have the police beer given their Dcrllllon records 'fins, the Big Ten taken adequate steps lo protect the sanctity of our homes against these nmurauders? We understand that only otic of (he desperadoes has repaid part of the money lhal was loaned from (he fund, flflke Parroh, conscience- stricken, sent back part.of his III gotten gulns tost summer.

LOUIS—When the Cardinals bought Earl "Sparky" Adams from the Pirates last fall, it was generally believed "Sparky" ivould play second base and Frank Frlsch would be moved over lo cover third. The oilier day Gabby Slreet, new manager of the Cardinals, gave us a very dlflere.'it slam V-T.^30 1 " 51 ''" wren "I Intend to start Fr|sch at second base." says Gabby, "as we all know he can make those valuable double plays and that Is vhere a. ball club e ets out of most of its- trouble, f don't know who vill open at third base, ni look at them all and pick out the bes' candidate." Street Is enthusiastic over the prospect of Charley cielbert de- •elopins; into a sterling innelder "I think Gclberl will become the best shortstop in the National League." street continued "it should not be forgitten he "was grabbing the hoppers on new fields when he broke In a year ago. He's all set nov and I look for him to become- a sensation, "Ernie Orsatti Is my choice for right Held regardless of the opposing pitched. 1 think he's going to become a great player. He needs encouragement more than any. thing, and he will get It from me Unless something unforseen happens just put Orsatti down as the right fielder." It begins to appear that Gabbv has a few Ideas of his own and is going to proceed to put them into practice.
