Under these conditions I btlieva that over here the exact placing of the tee shot makes the second wily apparently easier In moat instances, for while a wayward drive may force the player to carry a bunker and thus make his Job seem to be more difficult, stlU If his lint lay thru the opening, he would still prefer to pitch up to the pin. In Great Britain, particularly on the seaside links, no such condl- tirm exists, for the greens, tho they sra large, are rarely softened by means of water other than rainfall, and In ordinary weather when a player finds himself blocked ofi from the hole, the intervening hunker is s real hasard and not merely a psychological one. Anyone familiar with old St. Andrews will recognise fully the difference in the way the course plays when it is wet and when it is dry. When we contested the British open championship there in 1927 there had been a good bit of rain for some weeks prior to the tournament and the greens were soft and yielding and the course played more llkt an American course. Little thought had to be given to the placing of the tee shot, for the second shot In any event could be pitched up to the hole entirely over whatever hazards or subtleties might intervene. Under these conditions St. Andrews lost a great deal of Its charm. No one was worried by the burn at the first hole, bacaiis« it was possible to pitch well over It, and the second, third, fourth, alxth, tenth and twelfth, usually so tricky and difficult, becama simple drive and pitch affairs. Difficult When Dry. This same course when it is dry and fast absolutely demands accurate and intelligent driving. It is not awfully long in comparison with some of our championship courses over here, but the man who would score well when the greens are fast must first know where his drive ought to land and, second, be able to place it there. It is not possible to build a course like St. Andrews on any sort of ground, but it is possible by intelligent planning to build a course which will require accurate placing of tee shots. But the trouble with us over here is that after building such a course we then proceed to soften our greens to such an extent that the value of the design is almost, if not entirely, destroyed. The one excuse which can be advanced for this procedure is the great difficulty experienced in most parts of preparing approaches to the greens so that a ball can be landed on them with any certainty that It will continue on Its course w’ithout being deflected into trouble. I am afraid that we have not given quite enough attention to finding a way to ao prapare this part of our courses. Naturally, hard greens with uncertain ground before them make a very disagreeable combination. but we must remember that the run-up shot and the pitch and run are legitimate parts of the game.

Only twice did Iowa get the ball In Northwestern territory but the ; slim six point lead built up in the : first period looked far from safe when Hawkeye ball carriers broke , into the clear twice and had to be hauled down from behind.

Booth kicked from the 12- yard mark and the Elis, with the end of the game in sight, smothered Barry Wood’s last few attempts to pull the Crimson out of defeat. 'The great Harvard captain never had a chance to break thru that final wall of blue. As a dramatic finishing touch, Wood on the last play of the game attempted a long pass, only to be smothered by tacklers on his 1-yard line for an 18-yard loss as he failed even to get the ball out of hia hands. In this spectacular fashion Booth and Yale ended Harvard’s three j-ear winning streak and at the same time handed thl' gallant Crimson forces their first setbacl^ of the 19S1 season. The defeat cost Harvard a golden chance to capture eastern championship honor* for th* first time since 1913. The swift accomplishment of thl* long sought triumph, with the "’Mighty Atom" of Eli football in the field to the other on the shoulders of his wildly yelling admirers. The rest of the Eli players were nearly mobbed in the excitement a.* the pentup enthusiasm exploded all over the premises. Harvard missed its first and best opportunity in the very first minute of the game, after Jack Crickard, taking a lateral toss from Barry Wood on the klckoff, had galloped seventy-seven yards to Yale's 8-yard line in the most spectacular individual play of the contest. Yale’s stalwart forwards blocked this threat and the Ells took the ball on dowms on their 4-yard line. Thereafter Harvard w’is inside Yale’s 35-yard only twice. Wood failed to connect with a single long pass. Yale, three times pounded inside Harvard’s 10-yard line, before Booth finally cashed in on his last opportunity.

They not only stopped the one Cyclone threat but tossed the invaders back seventeen yards on their four chances to make yardage. . The lowans were never inside the Husker* 20-yard line and that one-third spurt was the only offensive effort that appeared like it might bear fruit.
