This, hou'cvtr, hua been explained by a K u n e r a l l y u n k n o w n fact that for nior« than half a century all of the clocks at the royal estate at Sand- rlnictiam have teen k e p t half nn hour ahead- of Greenwich time. The Idea was Introduced by · K i n s Edward when Prlnc^ of Wulea, and was borrowed by h i m from a neighbor, the late Earl of Leicester to whom In tho ·»rly d a y s of t h e i r married l i f e the liUe kins and his bride .were frequent visitor*. It was tho carl's custom to Ucep all of tho clocks on, his ts:ite half an hour fn«t so as to Insure punctuality. The prlnc« was no taken with tb* Idea that h» adopted It. - ' ' r .

B t*«. . . . : . . ' . . , · · ( BY JOE WILLIAMS. A LWAYS as long as golf Is played tlio name of Hagen w i l l be synonymous with grit and '.tight. The Rochester homc- lii-cd : is at his. giddy best in the pinches. His genius shines brightest when the odds nro heaviest and the pressure tightest. No more .spectacular spurt has ever been recorded than Walter Ha-, gen's drive to overtake MiUe Brady, leading by five strokes, nt Brookline a few years back. Hageii's brilliant rusli brought him into a tic and in the playoff he won- the' open title. Hagen differs from many .'golfers, frorri'Jiin Barnes, for example. . Nothing pleases Magcn more-than,;.to know in advance exactly how strokes he must pick up in order to overtake:a leading rival. ^ An instance conies to mind; Hagen, playing in the western open at Cleveland several years ago, came to the sixty-third.hole, and was told Jock Hutchinson had finished with a comfortable lead. -"What do I need : to beat him!" Hagcn. ( asked. You'll have to beat par in by three strokes," he was told. Hagen won that tournament. At Inverness In 1920 Barnes, . c o m i n g down the stretch, appeared, to have a fighting- chance to overtake Ted.: -Ray,': ultimate victor. A spectator, thinking the player would be interested, told Barnes nay's finishing figure; HAGEN. many Barnes resented tlie spcclator'a action. Plainly he preferred not to know what he had to do In order to win. Instead of being an incentive, the knowledge that he "must keep within a prescribed scoring circle had a disturbing effect, and hi* game immediately slumped. . There" arc a lot of players l i k e that. There are few like Hagen. I asked Hagen to tell me about the greatest s l i o l l ho ever made. "That's: too hard,"; he answered. "I'd rather tell about the moit intelligent shot I ever made if you don't object .. to my claiming to be in- \ tclligcnt. It was in the French open, in -1920. I ·was paired with Abo Mitchell. We were playing . the last hole. LaFitte, :the Frenchman, had-finished in the'lead. ''Mitchell and I each needed fours'to win and fives to lit.- ' '· ' ' ' ^ ' "'"· '"·"·' "The hole In quMtion, Wai * difficult two gholter. Both Mitchell and I were capable of getting home in two by playing long wooden" thots. But it was too risky. I told Mitchell I Intended 16 play lafe for a five. "Mitchell decided to (o for his four and the title. He played a wooden aecond and topped the ball. I took an Iron and was short but within pitching distance. Mil- cheU still had · hard long (hot for hit third and .mU«ed- That ruined him. I got the fJ*« I wai after, tied LaFilte, and beat him in the-play-off." h a m - a n d - c g g orders in railroad station hashery.
