' Lonacoring. Md_ Dec. 30.--The Japanese are swell fellows and take their asebail seriously, but they just couldn't hit Lefty Grove's fast ones that turned ; American League batters inside out last season. "We *«^ tbe time of our lives on that trip." Lefty said today as he reared back on his chair in the bowling alley he oirns and runs in baseball's off season. Be and a band of champion big leaguers retuaced last week from their j tour of Japan, during which they played 17 games before 500.000 Nippon rooters. · j "The Jans are better fielders than they are batters." the Philadelphia Athletics' star declared. "My fast one? I don't believe I threw i a eurre ball hi any of these games. The ' Japs didn't seem to be able to do much 'damage to the fast straight ones. "Their own pitchers hardly ever last\ ed more than four innings against us. i iTheir twirlers there displayed form : i equal to major league pitching here, but 'at the end of a comparatively short time they went to pieces." FIELD GOAL IN LAST MINUTE !BRINGS LOCALS V I C T O R Y Silent Five Defeats Washington Team By 23 To 22. Contrary to predictions ol about 90 j P«r $ezr!. of football fans, Coi. D. John ! Marlwy, this city, and fonaer grid j meaior at the University of Maryland j when it was known as Maryland Agrf- i cultural College, contends TuIaoe'S ·' Green Wave has a 50-50 chance of j defeating the highly-touted Southern ; California eleven in the Rose Bowl ; game in Pasadena, Calif.. Friday af- j ternoon. Col ^Marker was in Sew Or- · leans when Tilane defeated Washington Slate several wceis ago. 28-14. and ! it is his opinion that there is eo basis ; for tbe opinion among grid fans that j Southern California will mop up the : field with the Green Wave as :t did with Georgia. j "The forward passing coasaiaai'on j of Zimmerman to Hayres is deacij," ! he said. Gerald Dairymple, Tulane's | star end, is a great all-rouse! player, j probably not as sure a pass receiver tf j Harries, but possesses uncanny ability : at diagnosing opponents' plays ssd be- j trig there in time to s:op than. If the Trojans should and some way of bet- ; :lin; up Zimmerman to he can't pass, i the Green Wave can put forward several She throwers in Glover. Pelts, · Dawson. Haik, Kodgins and DeBuys. Col. \farkey said he does not believe · the lighter T-alsnt team wili be able to i cope with the Trojans on ground plays, i but thinks their baffling osssing at- { ta;k will completely ·stump Howard s Jones' powerful eleven.

The seventh at Inverness is a famous i dogics:. one- that ha5 occupied the : spotlight for more than 10 years. It ! rr.'.asurcs 3;G yards the long way ! around arid permits no careless or off- · line shots. The hole is a natural par : four, with hazards along both sides and traps before and behind the green. The ; srccn itself is rolling in nature. Three times Ray gambled the direct air line against the safer long way : around. With one tee shot he actually drove the green 285 yards distant and I in full view of the tee.- Once he made j the journey via the fairway. ] His four birdies rewarded him in the : final tabulation.
