Indoor footbnll which Is failing to find aproval among fans is regarded os the only possibility of settling this ultra post-season discussion. Try Three Kicks l'espite the winter weather, a fair sized crowd turned out to see the battle which was regarded as one of the best staged on the field thjs season. Three times the Cardinals failed at a field goal and the Staleys, within oJsy striking distance, lost the ball on downs whon a forward pass was incomplete. These comprised the only scoring possibilities during the game. I'uring a large part of the time, the Cardinals kept the ball on Staley's territory. The Staleys were short some 01 their best men. Trafton, center, was on the sidelines due to an Injury in the Canton game.

In fact, there are seven or eight men capable of holding down a place on the 'Varsity, Aubrey started as a forward. This season he is more likely to break in at stationary jjuard. Ah Develops New Offense. Iowa basketball has been speeded up since the close of the football sea son. Coach Ashmore is drilling his men in a new style of offense that partly gets away from the short pass ing game the lowans have been ac customed to use.

Frank Shiim-k is working in at running guard this year. Barton freshman last season, seems to have tho inside track at center, but is being closely pressed by Kelloway. McGovncy, Loliman, Gordon, Froh- wcin. and HuTlburt are waging a hard battle for the forward positions.

I Buy It At Mac's At Reduced Pricss CHRISTMAS SUGGESTIONS NEW YORK, Dec. IS. America is surely the land of the Golden Fleece as far as ' professional golf is concerned, and some of the leading native-born pros are beginning to pinch themselves and wonder why, if British golfers can make an annual 'clean-up" in the United States golfing centers, they cannot get some of the money. This exhibition stuff is getting on the nerves of some of the cracit homebreds and small wonder. Harry Vardon and Ed Ray took away a cool $20,000 each for their three months' tour here in 1920, and George Duncan and Abe Mitchell stepped over last summer from Britain and did fully as well as Vardon and Kay. Othrra Plan Tour. It is understood that next summer two other British professionals, with Sandy Herd mentioned as the drawing card of the team, will try their luck on American links. This winter lim Barnes and Jock Hutchison, holders of the American and British open titles, are going to the coast for an exhibition trip. While Barnes and Hutchison are representatives of American golf, neither is a native-born son. So in all the "mopping up" that has been done and is on the books for future business, not a single American homebred golfer has benefited. This Fe'ms hardly just to the many fine golfers who -were born on this side of the Atlantic, learned their game here and have always played here. It seems reasonable to expect that a pair of American home- breds could do a little succcsstul barnstorming. lr. S. Stars Worthy. And the crux of the matter is that some of them are giving this matter rerious consideration. Foremost of all American homebred golf profes sionals is Walter Hagen. twice American open champion and ane. of the best-natured and best-liked men in the came. "The Hage." as he is termed, used to "got the goats" other professionals a few years ago because he wore such a great variety of flashy clothes and appeared in a tuxedo at winter golfing resorts. He drew a few unkind comments from British professionals the first year he went over to play in the Eritish open, but last year at St. Andrews ho was as popular as any mau there. He even won the hearts of the Old School Scotch srfessionIs when he took some of tlufrn into his room, opened his trunks . and told them to help themselves Xo his out fits. And they know he can play the game. When George Duncan arrived in England after completing his American tour he told a sou ball manufacturer who has since returned to this country that "Hagen is the best of the lot in the States." Hagen is thinking of going on tour. ".nd this summer will undoubtedly see him on the road. He plans to play In the British open at Sandwich and re turn immediately to the United States. He may tour some this winter. Considering the number of titles ho has won and the fact that he is America's foremost homebred professional, and has been for number of years, Hagen has played In few exhibitions. The first time he went to Great Britain to play in the British open at Deal he got just one exhibition match there, although he was at the time the American open champion Abont the only exhibitions he has had in America were those in which he was asked to be one of a pair to play ngainf.i cither arrton and Kay or Dunoon and Mitchell. Tommy Kerrigan, who finished so well up in the British open last Summer; Mike Brady and Leo Diegle are among the leading native-born pro fc-ssionals who have never done much in the exhibition line.
