WPB proposes to permit the sale of ammunition for hunting purposes by issuance of a supplementary order to Order L-286 later this week, ofllcials recently told the Ammunition Industry Advisory committee, • UY riERNAJCD BRENNER United Press Sports Staff Chick Evans might have become a pi-cat tfolfln'f; champion If he had been' able to make his putter behave, : ' Chick had—and still •has—everything- else u king- of .the fairway needs. His drives whistle straight j down the fairway. He's never been n really long- driver, but -Chick's shots from the tec buzz down a.s if they had been aimed by an old Tennessee rifleman. And with irons—well, chick can mnko his middle-distance clubs sit :up and talk. He's been known to set a newspaper down on the fairway—back off about 170 yards— und pepper the sheet with • iron shots. He'd just 1 drop them on the paper like a Fortress bombardier planting- his load of explosive eggs on- an enemy objective: And he •didn't miss any oftcner than thosu air-borne marksmen 'do. .• They say that Chick Is-one of the few ftolfers In the history of thu game who can drop a midiron shot within a.,few feet of the hole. But with a putter in his hand Chick turns into a Sund.iy duffer —:i guy who just can't sink his eight and ten footei's. And oven wo ,. su _ Ll guy who needs three strokes on the gruen where players with less all-around skill take only two. Once—in the semi-finals of the national -amateur tournament in J93.1—Chick started out with four different-types of putters in his bags. He hoped that at least one of them would drop a few shots for -him. But it didn't work out, Chick ran up against Johnny Anderson in that match at Garden City, L. I., and Evans could not sink a putt any faster than he could sink a battleship.- Chick lost the match. Golfers hook their heads and said: "If the g-tiy could only putt." There wns one gripping match that Chick—and old timers around the fairways—will always rcmem- our. It was in tho national amateur of 1910. i7 YEARS MAJORS; sepvWe WrtM One person -in every three Is wholly or partially deaf in one ear or in both. NOTICE! SERVICEMEN NOTICE!

Chick was a young flash from Chicago then. Hii ti'iumphs in the lylfi amateur and opon tourneys lay in the future. And ho was S3 years younRCr than he was when ho won this year's Chicago city title. But he was the same man with the irons—the guy who always laid them down where he wanted to. Evans met Bill Fownes in that 1910 competition. Chick had it all over Fownes oft the tee and on the fairways. Still, I-'owncs fought back tenaciously. He might have lost the mutely by six or seven holes J/ he hadn't- managed, to drop a couple of close shots at strategic moments. As- it- was, things looked black for Fownes. They moved down toward the wire with five, four, and then only, three holes to play. And as they stood ready to play the first of those three holes, Chick Evans was two up. He needed jus: one of the next three -holes to win. Taht role was an even deal until they came to the green. They reached the putting carpet all even. Chick lined up his putt— it was a long one,- the kind you play for two strokes. And the ball rolled wrong. His second s h 0 t- ovor-rolled the cup. One more— and the pill finally dropped into the cup—Chick* had lost the hole. Two more chances—but on the second it was the same story— Chick needed three strokes on the _rcen—and then it was all even. The winner on the last hole would win the match. They hit the green even again. The heavy silence lay like a carpet over the players, ns they took .heir first strokes. Fownes made his good—it was close to tho cup. Chick' strickled a little off. Then Fownes took his turn again. The ball u-avered up to the cup—and it dropped - in. Now Evans had his turn—he could tie the match and try again, on tho next hole by- sinking his shot.' Chick took his stance carefully. He lined the ball up. And he struck the ball lightly. It rolled up and alongside tho cup — and passed by. Chick had missed. Ho dropped tho match because he couldn't drop the putt. This V That By DUIQi KAZLACSKAS s Ktlitor) A recently published encyclopedia of athletic information questions the legend of General Abncr Doubleday founding the great American game of basball! Doubleday will probably survive this attack—and keep right on being founder of the game of baseball as we know it. For he has weathered every storm since the unique plan rmined him founder of the game. Tho General died before the turn of the century, an honored hero of the Civil war. Doubleday also surveyed the wilderness, sighted the first shot fired at Fort AMERICAN LEAGUE No games yesterday. The SUindinC St. Louis Boston New York Detroit Chicago . . . .

A nice na:ne to found baseball. Mr. G. A. Spalding had his own ideas about the start of baseball and appointed a commission to dig into tho past and find the father of baseball. A. G. Mills was tho director of the commission- as well as an old friend of Doubleday's. The new sports book says that a commission member was also a friend of Doubleday's —in fact, a j blood relation. The board met and i then researched for nearly a year j on the start of baseball. Laughing off stories to the contrary, the commission returned with the verdict—a handsome tail- ormnde legend that Gen. Doubleday started baseball onu bright, day in 1S39. So the rap was hung on Abner. It's all very nice and tidy, of course. Founder Doubleday was as nice a follow as you'd want—• besides being a war hero. Cooperstown, supposedly the cjty of the founding, makes a nice museum town. All very nice. And the letters and affidavits that poured into the commission members, telling or baseball played before the 'General wns born—hmpp, why of course not.' General Abncr Doubleday. dead these long years, would probably be mighty surprised to learn that he invented the game of baseball, according to the new encyclopedia. But we don't care who founded the game as long as they keep playing it!!: . NATIONAL LEAGUE .Yesterday's Result* St. Louis 11. Chicago 1. Only game scheduled. The Standing St. Louis ..
