Golf Title to Dutra Baseball, Golf, Racing, Athletics, Swimming, Boxing, Other Sports Champions and Record Breakers Carr Again Defeats Eastman in MOO' in 46-9, Record Time Stanford Stadium, Palo Alto, Cal., July 16 (JP) Big Ben Eastman staged a spectacular comeback today to make the American Olympic team, although he was whipped again In a thrilling stretch duel by Bill Carr of Pennsylvania in the final 400-meter tryout. The margin of Carr's victory was two yards. Carr smashed the world record by breaking the tape In 46.9 seconds, clipping one-tenth of a second from the mark set by Emerson (Bud) Spencer on the same track in 1928. It took a remarkable burst of ; Spectacular Rounds Of 68 and 65 Bring Big Pro Out of Ruck By RALPH TROST Staff Correspondent of The Eagle Long Beach, L. I., July 16 Massive, 220-pound Olin Dutra of Brentwood, Cal., the 28-year-old professional who had beea first the hero and then the goat in the National Open championship at Fresh Meadow, turned the vaunted Lido course into a drive and pitch layout as he bowled par and the rest of the field over on his way to a miraculous finishing 65 and a four round total of 282 to win the Metropolitan Open championship here today. He finished two strokes better than blond-headed Walter Kozak of the Engineers Club and six strokes better than Joe Turnesa.

I., July 16 The Princemere polo four of Fred Prince advanced to the second round of the Hempstead Cups tourney at the Meadowbrook Club today due to the default by the United States Army No. 2 team. The officers were unable to mount a side due to the fact that a number of their ponies have been drafted for use by the All-Army four which meets Aiken in the Junior championship tourney at the Rumson Country Club tomorrow. Originally the All-Army Please Turn to Pafe 4 field he conquered today included all the stars of the division, with the exception of Burgoo King, win ner of the Kentucy Derby and the Preakness, and now a crippled horse down on Col. E. R. Bradley's Farm at Lexington, Ky. A dry track or a heavy one makes no difference to Gusto and Coucci. They galloped to victory over a heavy track in winning the American Derby, and today the racing strip was lightning fast, although their time was not sensational for the mile and quarter. The original field of 13 was reduced to 12 by the scratching of Big Brand, which had ben grouped In the field. After a delay of seven minutes at the post, due to antics of Evergold and Osculator, the field was sent away In perfect alignment with Top Flight, two-year-old champion of 1931, shooting to the front without urging. Jockey Sonny Workman quickly snuggled the Whitney filly as she drew clear of the field down Lt. Gov. Herbert Lehman of New York, congratulatin g Helene Madison, winner of the 100-meter freestyle (left), Eleanor Holm, 100-meter backstroke champion (center), and Dorothy Boynton, winner of the high platform diving event at Jones Beach, N. Y., yesterday after the Olympic w omen's swimming and diving tryouts. Schwartz Colt, Concei In Saddle, Comes From Behind to Land Stake World Swim Records Broken by Miss Holm And Helene Madison speed by the black-haired Pennsyl vania flier and the fastest 400-meter race of all time today to check Eastman, who brought a crowd of 30,000 cheering enthusiasts to their feet by a comeback that exceeded all expectations. Carr, the favorite, was expected to win and did so, handsomely. He showed a clean pair of heels to Eastman for the second time in two weeks in record-breaking style. Eastman set the pace, coming out of the chute, led at the 200-meter mark in 22::22 seconds and did not yield the lead until the home stretch. James Gordon of the Los Angeles Athletic Club won the third place on the Olympic team as Karl Warner of Yale, a prime favorite, finished seventh and last. RALPH METCALFE SWEEPS DASHES Ralph Metcalfe, sensational Marquette University Negro sprinter, made a sweep of the dashes by galloping to victory in the 200-meter dash in 21.5 seconds, surpassing the Olympic record, after capturing the 100-meter event in 10.6 seconds, tying the best Olympic performance. Metcalfe, Eddie Tolan of Detroit and George Simpson of Columbus, Ohio, took the first three places in that order in each sprint, as all the California favorites were shut out, including Frank Wykoff, Hec Dyer and Bob Kiesel. As a climax to the record-breaking, Bill Miller, Stanford pole vaulter, soared over the bar at 14 feet 1 inches, for a new world mark, by the margin of exactly one-eighth of an inch. Miller surpassed the former record of 14 feet Pi Inches, mdae in 1928 by Lee Barnes of Southern California. Bill Graber, Southern California's current vaulting ace, gave the crowd another thrill by also clear-nig the bar at its new world record height. FOUR WORLD nrrnone TA fin The pole vault record was the fourth world mark to be surpassed In two days, in addition to which a fifth was equaled in the 100 meters by Tolan in the trials. Almost lost sight of in the final excitement was the fact that the New York Athletic Club carried off the National A. A. . teUam championship by piling up an overwhelming margin of points. The defeat of Gene Venzke of the New York A. C, who finished fourth to Pen Hallowell in a record-breaking 1,500 meter race and failed to make the American team, was the outstanding upset. The American Olympic Committee officially announced the first three place-winners in each event would comprise the Olympic team. In addition, Head Coach Lawson Robertson announced all six finalists in the 100-meters would be included, the last three, Wykoff, Emmett Top-pino and James Johnson oflllinois State Normal being used for the 400-meter relay. Robertson also said the last four In the 400-meter run, Ed Ablowich, , Arnold Adams, Ivan Fuqua and Karl .Warner, would be put on the team tor the 1,600-meter relay. Dickerson Wins At Mineola Traps By breaking 49 out of a possible 60 targets, Fred Dickerson won the High Scratch Cup at the Mineola traps of the Nassau Trapshooting Club, yesterday.

The victory gave Germany the third Biatch needed to clinch the series af tr. wiKiinftboth singles yesterday. out over the cabanas Thursday morning In the first round of this tournament he was no longer coi sidered a threat. When he finished his second round with a total of 149, eight strokes behind the flying Kozak and pudgy Johnny Golden he was considered in the same light just another in the field. Bus this morning things began to happen and fast. BREAKS TWO OPEN MARKS When the tournament started the course record for competition was the famous 67 of WifTy Cox's scored here in the Metropolitan Open in 1929. The four round record was Bill Mehlhorn's 289. Both marks, brilliant marks In the history of the Metropolitan Open championship, were completely obscured by ths super brilliance of Dutra's play. Dutra. a giant of a maa with tho tremendous torso of an oriental wrestler, commence moving up at the very first hole of the day. Into the light morning breeze he crashed out a clout with the driver that ale tip 290 yards of sunburned turf be tween tee and green. A wee pitch planted the ball on the green and the straight-faced putter clicked the ball into the hole for a birdie. That was the start. There were few breaks in his play, A 68, to that time the best score of the championship, lifted him from the also rans into a position five strokes behind Victor Ghezzi, the unknown from Rumson who had popped, backed by a 69, right into the lead. o GREATEST GOLF IN COIRSE'S HISTORY Then came the real flash, the greatest golf that this historic course has ever seen. Drives went hurtling down the very middle of the fairways from 280 yards or mere. Pitches, cleaved sharply from the dry turf, were flung at the very pins. Dutra was firing right at the hole and twice hit the pin. This afternoon he dropped a 15-footer at the third. That putt fired the spark. On the famed and feared channel hole Olin propolled a full wood cleek shot over the sand and t 4 Olin Dutra sea and onto the back of the plateau, 10 feet above the hole. It took just one rap with the iron putter to get that, ball down for an eagle three. Lido's sixth, the 496-yard hole that beat Wifly Cox, saw Dutra lash a brassle into the breeze and right up to the green. A chip and a wee putt recorded another birdie. The 469-yard seventh saw him ten feet from the piu In two and putting for an eagle. The putt banged against the back of the hole but hopped out. He got his birdie, however. One of the two misses he played in the day was his spade shot at the eighth, where he had wafted one out of bounds on the first day. This time he kept clear of the shacks too clear for the ball stopped In the rough to the left. However, he niblicked on four feet away and dropped the putt. Frr the second time in the day he almost drove the green on the 320-yard ninth. Twice he scored birdies. MOVES UP FRONT WITH 31 FOR NINE Out in 31, Diegel had moved all the way to the front. Turnesa had flivvered. Victor Ghezzi had blown up. Any other low scores for tha? nine were mere gestures save the 34's of Walter Kozak and the tubby Golden. That's the story except that one should add that Dutra, who had picked the worst possible spots at which to hit his poor shots in the National Open championship, missed Just one shot in the nc:;t nine holes and that wps only a half, miss and played where It was least damaging. Before this great round was over. Please Turn to Paje u.. Captures Three Places on Olympic Team and Five First Places Evanston, 111., July 16 (f) Miss Mildred Didrikson of Dallas, Texas, who prefers to be called Babe, will lead the American Women's Olympic track and field team, and such assistance as she may need against the foreign invasion, will be provided by 14 other young ladies. . The Babe, a wiry 19-year-old lass who works as a clerk in an insurance company office in Dallas, today did just what she declared she would do won the National A. A. U. track and field championship single-handed and reserved for herself three places on the Olympic squad. Incidental to her big day's work in which she raced from one event to another, changing shoes between times, were five first places, a tie for another and a fourth. One new world record went to her credit, and she shared another, as well as improving her own javelin mark. All by Herself Miss Didrikson piled up 30 points for the Employers Casualty Club. The Illinois Women's Athletic Club of Chicago finished second with 22. The Western Women's Club of San Francisco had 13. and the Meadowbrook Club of Philadelphia was fourth with nine. She won her favorite event, the 80 meter hurdles in 12.1 seconds for her first Olympic place, and before the afternoon was over, had tied with Jean Shiley of the Meadow-brook club, for first place in the running high jump at 5 feet 3 3-16 inches, a 16th of an inch better than the listed world record. In the baseball throw, a non-OlvmDic event, she outclassed her field with a throw of 272 feet 2 inches and won the shut put with an effort of 39 feet inches for another world's record. She left the high Jump to take a leap in the broad Jump, another strictly A. 1 A. U. event, and won with 17 feet 6 5-8 inches. Then, as Mildred Didrikson a climax, she flung the Javelin 139 feet 3 inches to break her own world record by nearly six feet. She will represent the United States in the javelin, hurdles and hiRh Jump in the Olympic Games. The 100-meter dash was won by Ethel Harrington of the Illinois Women's A. C, who was permitted to run in the finals after forgetting where the finish line was in her trial heat. Her time was 12.3 seconds and she was followed by Wilhemina von Bremen. San Francisco; Elizabeth Wilde, Kansas City; Louise Stokes. Maiden, Mass.; Mary Carew, Medford. Mass.. and Tidye Pickett of Chicago, all of whom qualified for the Olympic team, the first three in the Century and the other three for the relay. Another Record Ruth Osborn of Shelbyville, Mo., a high school girl, won the discus and set a new world's record of 133 feet 3-4 inches with Margaret Jenkins, of San Francisco and Lillian Copeland of Los Angeles, taking the other two Olympic positions. Miss Didrikson was fourth. Others who gained places in the Olympic squad were: Evelyn Hall of Chicago and Simone Schaller, Pasadena, Cal., in the hurdles; Nan Gin-dele of Chicago and Gloria Russell, of San Francisco, in the javelin and Annette Rogers of Chicago in the high lump. Chicago, July 16 (JP) Man o' War, superhorse of the American turf, has sent a grandson to the races to carry on for him. To the astonishment of 40,000 sweltering spectators Gusto, a slow beginning but courageous finishing grandson of the great racehorse, captured the $88,000 Arlington classic, richest three-year-old race in the world, today, with the two favorites, Top Flight and Faireno, out of the money, and stag By HAROLD F. PARROTT Jones Beach Park, L. I, July 16 A mere slip of a blonde, a petite brunette and an auburn-haired giantess they made a pleasing picture gallery of Olympic tryout winners as the Women's Swimming Meet came to a splashing finish in Zach's Bay here today. When winsome Dot Poynton scarcely 100 pounds of her stretched her arms forward parallel to the slender platform which held her poised 33 feet above the ripples, she was monarch of all she surveyed. And that included both the awe-stricken thousands on the shore and her leading rvlal, the L'ncle Sam's Nereids For Olympic Games Winners of the Olympic women's swimming and diving trials: 400 meter freestyle swim Helene Madison.

But the judges had close decisions to make, and Helen lost third place to Marion Dale Roper of Detroit. She was heart-broken as she stood on the float anxiously and learned that she had lost an Olympic berth by three-one-hundredths of a point. Miss Poynton won the event han- Continued on Page 6 gering in his wake. Behind Gusto three lengths came Stepenfetchit, with Evergold, a horse grouped in the field with two others, Sazerac and Rehoboth, finishing third. Sazerac, another field horse, was fourth. Trailing him by a head was Top Flight. The queen of the American turf, heretofore beaten only once in 11 starts. Staggering back in eighth place was Faireno which with Top Flight were the heavily played choices. DERBY OVER AGAIN, COl't'CI AND GUSTO It was the American Derby all over again Couccl and Gusto. The game pair, the 17-year-old Italian lad, Silvio Coucci. and Gusto, won America's richest stake by three lengths today, just as they did In winning the $50,000 American Derby at Washington Park a month ago. In both races they had come from behind to do it. Today, they came from 12th place absolutely last, to charge through the stretch to win by three lengths. The 3-ye;--old chestnut son of American Flag Daylight Saving, ran the mile and a quarter in blistering heat in 2:03 3-5. The race, with a gross value of $88,100 was worth $76,600 to Morton L. Schwartz, New York sportsman, to add to the purse his colt gathered in the American Derby. Gusto, closing at 10 to 1 in the mutueal wagering, rewarded his barkers with $20.54 for each $2 bet on his chances. His place was $9.18, with S5.36 to show. The place price on Stepenfechlt was $8.62. with $5.96 to show. The show price on Evergold was $5.52. Gl'STO LOOMING AS 3-YEAR-OLD KING Gusto, by his victory seems have established his claim as to 3- year-old champion of 1932, The How the Arlington Was Run brilliant blonde Georgia Coleman., who used to be queen of the women When Helene Madison's husky divers. tanned arms reached out and started her smooth surge through 400 meters of unhurried effort, she overshadowed the rest of the field from the very bark of Paul Lock-wood's gun. Another world record for her was no surprise, but that she should break the old mark by seven seconds was nothing less than amazing. , STILL, THERE WAS SOME CONSOLATION Eleanor Holm, another of those mechanized marine marvels whose every stroke seems to make the record book tremble on its foundations, backstroked to victory in the 100-meter event, and in the doing of it dashed off another world record. Poynton, Madison and Holm a new diving queen and pair of world record-breakers. That made quite a day of it. Disappointment stalked grim and greedy of its victims at this meet today. For some of the girls it meant only the losing of a championship, for they still earned their trip to Los Angeles with a second or third place. So it was with Georgia Coleman, ex-springboard queen, who lost to Dot Poynton off the high board today after a stunning defeat by young Kitty Rawls yesterday on the springboard. She got second place both times but it didn't denfc her confidence any. "I'll win at the Olympics," she announced gaily, While the photographers Clustered around Dot Poynton But with Helen Meany Balfe, another former diving queen, it was different. "I'm through for good this time," she announced. Recognized lor almQst a decade as the FIFTH RACE 170 COO ddd. The Arlington Classic: thrp-vfar-old: mile nd one-Quarter.
