THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 1939. 'Glamour Girl 1 - Golfer Sets Her Sights On No. 1 Women's Title NINfc By EARL HILLIGAN AP Feature Service CHICAGO, Aug. 18 (fl*)—There's a double meaning to the "G. G." nickname Shirley Anne Johnson carries—and .both fit this pretty 22- year-old golfer who will bid for national honors Aug. 21-26 at Noroton, Conn. Miss Johnson, a striking blonde and one of the most popular young women stars in the Chicago district, laughingly recalls .how she acquired the "G. G." pseudoynm. "In a tournament here last summer I was asked to pose for a photographer after a good round," Miss Johnson explains. "One of the girls—I think it was Marion Miley —passed by and called out, 'Hi, there, G. G.,' and I took quite a kidding later on the glamour girl business." "G. G." Also Means Several ranking professionals think another meaning of "G. G." is equally applicable — it's Good Golfer. Johnny Revolta, her teacher and a nationally known star, thinks she is ready to take a place at the top, and Dave Toch, professional at her home club, Sunset Ridge, also thinks she is ready. Miss- Johnson has been handi: capped recently by a strained back muscle, but it's responding to treatment and she's expected to be SHIRLEY ANNE JOHNSON "I Took Quite a Kidding" Southwestern at Phoenix, Ariz., and the Memphis, Tenn., Invitational.

IS (/p)—An itinerant magazine salesman, charged with vagrancy, protested to Municipal Judge Perry Wheeler, "I got a legitimate enterprise."
