THE DETROIT FREE PRESS SUNDAY, MAY 29, 193 Three Former Amateur Qualifiers Will Seek Places in National Open Trials SPORT SECTION WHAT A DIFFERENCE A FEW YEARS MAKE PUBLIC COURSE GOLFERS START GOLF AND GOLFERS By St F. DRIKF.NBROD WHILE IT WASN'T INTENDED as such, four of the participants In last week's pro-amateur tournament at Detroit Country Club put on a spirited driving contest. Emcrick and Chuck Kocsis were playing with Al Watrous and Francis Ryan. All four are long hitters and they were bending their backs and putting everything they possessed Into their swings as they strove to outdistance each other off the tees. The result was some tremenduous driving, with honors for the most part going to Ryan, the Oakland Hills and Detroit Golf Club amateur.

When all four connected solidly, Ryan's ball generally was out In front from five to 15 yards. Chuck Kocsis also held his own with the two pros. Watrous regards Ryan as one of the most powerful hitters he ever saw and frequently tells about a shot the amateur made on the one-shot, PRO GOLFERS HAVE BIG EDGE Test Set for June 6 at Country Club Ten amateurs are Included In tha field of 50 golfers who will try for the six places allotted this section In the trials for the National Open a week from Monday at Detroit Country Club. Judging from past performances, the professionals should score a near shutout, because since present system of sectional tests waa sdoot- ttLx; iii-" upiu'il beventeemn at Oakland Hills. Playing from well back on the tee, Al was proud of a well-hit two Iron shot which dropped on the green, but Francis was home with an approaching club.

Al forgets which one it was but says it couldn't have been any more than a five Iron. JOE I) EVANY, PROFESSIONAL at Grosse Tie Golf and Country Club, and president of the Michigan P. G. is a booster for the District Golf League, also the M. G.

A. or public course league. He says these leagues not only provide splendid competition but help create more Interest in the game. He says any number of members at his club are constantly striving to Improve their games with hopes of "making the team." Joe offers one suggestion; he would have six Instead of four men on a team. Two more men would add Just that much more interest to each team and its games, he says.

The idea is a good one and Bob Howell and Clive Helferich undoubtedly will consider it when the times comes to make plans for next year's district league. Four men rather than larger line-ups were decided upon to prevent the teams from being unwieldy and insure presence of the better players. Two more men could be added and the same results still be obtained. CHARLES (CHITK) KOCSIS IS old-fashioned when It comes to putters. No putting cleeks or straight putters of the conventional type for him.

His must be of the goose-neck type "tind no slight curve satisfies him. He insists upon the extreme bend just above the blade 11 GOLFERS BUSY WomenBeginMatches in M. G. A. League Michigan Golf Association activi ties will reach a new high this week.

Men golfers continue their team matches, women representa tives of eight clubs start their league schedule and qualifying play begins In the Michigan Open Ama teur championship tournament, sponsored by the organization. First of the week's competition will come Sunday, when the mens' teams play the sixth matches of their round-robin schedule. Topping the card of 20 battles Is that between the unbeaten Bob O' Link and Sylvan Glen foursomes on the Glen course. The teams are tied for the West Side lead with six successive victories apiece. Sylvan Glen Strong Sylvan Glen has four excellent players in Larry O'Palka, Michigan Open Amateur champion; Gus Deer- ing, Faunce owier ana tsarney McCavana.

Bob O'LInk expects to send Johnny Conway, John Spomer, Joe Gray and Ed Somerville into the fray. Conway, outstanding star of the team, was missing from last week's match at Elizabeth Lake because of a hand Infection, but hopes to be ready for the important match. If he is not able to play, his place will be taken by Frank Babbish. Plum Brook's four Beaupre boys earned their place at the top of the East Side League last Sunday and if in their usual form they should keep tneir record clear Sunday when Rammler's foursome comes to Plum Brook. Tommy Armour's team, which met ltr.

first defeat last week at the hands of the Beaupres, will attempt to hold the runner-up position against the challenge of Renmor's linksmen. when the two meet on the latter course. Other matches on the East Side will bring together Rtdgemont at Sunnybrook, Maple Lane at Beverly Hills and Colony at Hillcrest. Women I'lay Wednesday In matches of secondary importance on the West Side, Duck Lake will play at Dearborn Hills, Wise's will go to Westchester, Redford will invade Elizabeth Lake and Hawthorne Valley will move against Plymouth. The first organized competition conducted between women's teams in the Detroit area will start Wednesday, with four matches between foursomes composed of public links players.

Members of the Detroit Women's Athletic Association, head ed by Mrs. M. J. Joyce, Detroit public links champion, are lining up under the M. G.

A. banner for these matches. It is expected that this rivalry will stimulate play among Detroit women and bring some good golfers to the fore. Open Qualifying to Start In Wednesday's matches, Maple Lane will go to Wise's, Duck Lake will play at Hawthorne Valley, Ren- mor women will go to Bob 6' Link Wednesday also will mark the opening of the qualifying play In the Michigan Open Amateur, in which Larry O'Palka will defend the title won at Colony last June. The honors will be decided this year at Bob O' Link Golf Club, Grand River at Twelve Mile Road, June 15 and 16, in 72 holes of medal play.

Sixty-four players from the public courses will compete with 20 of the lowest handicap players from public clubs. The public course representatives are to qualify in 36 holes of play on any of the Michigan Golf Association courses, June 1 to 5 inclusive, notifying the pro or manager of their club before starting their rounds and afterwards having their cards attested by the same Individual. All cards are to be forwarded before June 6 to Robert Sutherland of Sylvan Glen Golf Club, who is chairman of the tournament committee. SISLER IS MANAGER George Slsler, formerly of the St. Louis Browns, is managing the Shreveport team In the Texas League this year.

Um These Tips Today I Golf's Greatest which was characteristic of most putters years ago but which now la regarded as out-of-date. To make certain that the goose-neck effect Is marked enough he bends his own. Whenever he gets a new set of clubs he has had two in the last year he places the putter in a vise and hammers out a good bend in the steel. This drops the blade back about, an inch and enables him to stand directly over the ball, even if the hands are slightly in front of the clubhead. The system certainly works for him.

He is one of the finest putters in the district, gets his share of the long ones and Is as successful as anyone with the testing four and five-footers. REMEMBER HENRY LOPATE, the former score board man at Navin Field? He's a golfer now and recently made his best score of 101. And do you remember Horace Kendicks' wooden mashle? It has worn out and the Lochmoor man feels its loss so keenly he may quit the game. Eddie (Butch) Batchelor, son of E. A.

Batchlor. the world's greatest putter, has gone in for golf in a big way. Whenever Rex Bigelow, of Jackson, the state amateur champion, plays his father is in his gallery. The elder Bigelow was with Rex at last week's pro-amateur. Frank Syron, Orchard Lake pro, says O.

L. Beaudette is as good an amateur partner as any pro could have. Mr. Beaudette once won a match for Svron by playing the last three holes at Oakland Hills in 3-3-3. That's three under par over a difficult stretch.

Tournament time is four-leaf clover time for Mrs. J. H. Cissel, of Ann Arbor.

June 6, has been promoted to a more Important pqsltlon in the world of automobile racing in the United States.

Whereag prior to this yar the points awarded numbered '320, officials of the American Autompbile Association have rated the Detroit event at 570 points, thus establishing It as second In importance to the annual 500-mile struggle over the bricks of the Indianapolis Speedway on Memorial Day. "Indianapolis, then Is the slogan of the knights of the roaring road who duel each racing season for the championship honors. There was a time when Al-toona, Unlontown, Syracuse, Chicago, Salem and Kansas City events outranked the race at the Fair Orounds in Importance but the points collected at the Hoosier oval and Detroit virtually establish the Nation's racing leader. Only 14 cars will be permitted to face the starter here the afternoon of June 5. but these are expected to be recruited fully from the galaxy of racing freaks qualified for the Indianapolis struggle tomorrow.

Race Manager Chester M. Howell is at the speedway now with entry blanks for drivers who finish the race. There will be $5,025 In prize money at stake In the grind here. The winner will receive $2,000, the runner-up $1,000, and the pilot of the third place car $500. Some of racing's most famous drivers won in the past Fair Grounds races.

Frank Lockhnrt captured the honors in 1928, ClifT Woodbury in 1930, and the speed demon, Lou Meyers, in 1931. Al Watrous Sets Bloomfield Mark AI Watrous boasts another course record. It's a 67 the Oakland Hills professional made the other day at Bloomfleld Hills, the lowest registered since the course was remodeled. The former mark was 68. Playing with James Hammond, Harry Thompson and Walter Hagen, Watrous beat par by a stroke for a 34 going out, then went three under for a 33 on the second half.

Detroit University Scflool of Grosse Pointe was first with 8 points, followed by Trenton and Roosevelt, of Ypsilanti. with five each, and University High of Ann Arbor, with lour. 1 ed only four amateurs have qualified from this section. Amateurs, on the other hand, can obtain a certain measure of cheer in the fact that three of their former qualifiers will he among the competitors this time.

They are Les Conley, Lewis Bredln and William Courtney. The fourth of their number, Ross Somerville, the Canadian star, Is not entered this time; at least ha Is not included in the 50 who will attempt to qualify here. Conley Again Entered Conley, a former District amateur champion, who is entered from Toledo this year, qualified in 1926, when the tournament waa piayed at Columbus, but did not compete. Bredin was among the successful players In 1327 but withdrew in time to let another take his placa at Oakmont. Courtney placed with the leaders In 1928 and played that year In the championship proper at Olympla Fields, while Somerville was among the qualifiers in 1929 and played at Winged Foot The chief hope of the simon-pures, Chuck Kocsis, the Stata open champion, who is a freshman at the University of Michigan, la not entered this time.

With him among the missing, the amateura naturally will have something to brag about if they can gain one of the six places allotted this section. Bredin has been scoring well this season, however, while Conley and Courtney, if they are as formidable as in other years, may hustla some of the professionals. They at least will be dangerous and may give the amateurs the first plac'a they have had since Somerville came through in 1929. Watrous la Kxempt The field is a formidable one and the keenest kind of competition ia in sight. Only Walter Hagen.

Al Watrous and Tommy Aromur, of tha leaders, will be among the missing Watrous and Hagen qualified through having been placed among tho leaders at Toledo last summer, while Armour Is exempt because ha will be abroad for the British Open. All the other leaders here, among them Charley Hilgendorf, Clarenca Gamber, Emerick Kocsis. Orm and Jimmy Beaupre, as well as Nick Weher, of Grand Rapids, all former qualifiers, are among those who will try for the six places. Thirty-six holes will be with both morning and afternoon rounds scheluded. The players will be sent away by threes, the first group leaving the starting tea at 9 o'clock.

Face Stiff Test The Country Club course Is a testing one and it Is generally agreed that two rounds at a 75 clip will be good enough to gain one of tha six places. Besides the Detroit District contingent, a number of prominent out-of-town players will play here. Among them is Alfred Sargent, of Inverness, Toledo, the son of Georga Sargent, a former National Open champion. The outstate contingent will have an added formidable contender in Louis Chiappetta, of Jackson, a professional of national ranking.

In team batting, though. the Wolves are sixth in the eight-club league with .260. Washington leads with .302 and Homestead follows with .301. Hampton, of Washington, leads the batters who have participated In 10 or more games. His averae la Ml R.n has a .370 mark to lead the Wolves.

Better Golf All Week! CUP STROKES Teacher YOUR POCKET PRO OSCAR STANAGE PREP TRACK MEET THREE-WAY CLASH Cosmos Expected to Finish High By TOD ROCKWELL The Citv championship prep track meet scheduled lor 'inursciay is ex pected to develop into a three-way battle for points Between eastern, indoor champion. Northwestern, defending outdoor champion since 1923, and Hamtramck rilgn. The Cosmos are expected to finish near the top because of the strength thev displayed last week In the qualifying trials. Hamtramck qualified nine. Northwestern eight and Eastern and Central seven each.

Bill Bryant, Hamtramck's ace sprinter and co-holder of the present City record in the 100-yard dash at :10.1, is expected to count for five points In that event and ranks as a ravorite to capture tne 220 event. Most prep coaches agree he will be hard to defeat in Dotn. Bank on Gordon, Bryant Joe Gordon, Hamtramck, threat ens to garner another first place for his team In tne nroaa jump. During trials he easily outjumped Bill Hawthorne, the Indian acc. Some observers said Bill did not ex tend himself but was content to Qualify.

Others believe the Ham tramck boy will defeat Hawthorne at his best. Gordon and Bryant are Ham tramck's hopes to win the title. If they can capture 15 points between them, Stephen Kubackl, 440 runner, and the crack Cosmos relay team, may pick up enough to beat East ern and the uoits. Northwestern's greatest atrength is in the sprints. In the dashes Krug, Eldred, Mroch and Ted Bry ant are believed certain to ngure in the scoring in the 100 and 220-yard events.

The same boys rep resent tne colts relay team. Mer- rlott, 440-yard dash star, did not set a fast pace to qualify In that event, but should perform better In the finals. The Colts are contenders because of their ability to pick up second and third places. Eastern supporters admit the meet will be close, but scorn title chances for Northwestern or Ham tramck. William Hawthorne is conceded five points in the pole vault by every coach in the City League.

The same athlete looms as second place winner in the broad jump and has a good chance in the low hurdles. The Indians have another crack hurdler In John Anderson. He will be a contender in both high and low events. Eastern's three half mllers have turned in the best time this season. William Freeman Is the 880-yard indoor champion.

Close at his heels in every race this season have been Luther Frederick and Carroll Dra gila, Meyers la favored William Hutchinson, Indian miler, should place at least third in the mile. Only Hill Daly, record holder of Cass, and Kelley, of Southwestern, are conceded to have a chance to beat him. Hutchinson may be ahead of Kelley in the championship mile. Should Earl Meyers return to early season form he will capture another five points for the Eastern team. In practice and in dual meets Meyers heaved the ball more than 46 feet.

At the qualifying trials, his mark waa under that of Eizak of Pershing, and Rollings, of Highland Park. All of which makes Eastern loom as the favorite to capture the outdoor title which it held in 1922. Because rain halted the second day's trials last week, they will be run off Wednesday. Events Include 220-yard dash, 120-yard low hurdles, discus throw, half mile run, and the high Jump. WINS GOLF TITLE PURCHASE.

It is golf at a sjlsncs. A hip-pocket model of what to do. Tear out and carry it with you! Improve as you play!) By M. F. DRt'KENBROD From baseball to golf.

That's the route taken by many of the old heroes of the diamond after their playing days are ended. One of the latest to go that way Is big Oscar Stanage. In case you have forgotten, Stanage was the Tigers' catcher in the days of Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, Donie Bush and others of that illustrious gang. Stanage employed in Detroit and is on a golf course every weekend. It is in thiii way that he obtains much of his recreation and exercise.

He knew It wasn't well to let down entirely after his career on the diamond. The sudden change SPRINKLING PLANT ISREADYATD.G.C. New System Assures Green Fairways Workmen at Detroit Golf Club have been practicing of late, not with golf clubs and balls, but with sprinklers. The club has a new sprinkling system, for fairways as well as putting greens, and em ployees are being given every op portunity to acquaint themselves with its operation. The tests have been most satisfactory and Golf Club members are positive they no longer will be plagued by dry and brown fairways.

Old Man Summer can turn on all the heat at any time without scaring tnem. Sprinkling of both courses Is provided for by one of the largest and finest systems to be found any place. Most of the construction work was done last fall, when 33,000 feet of pipe was laid. The equip ment Includes, Desides the pump-house located near the eleventh green of the South Course, 5,000 feet of hose to be attached to 210 out lets scattered about both courses, also 40 sprinklers, each of which will cover a 125-foot circle. Depths of the mains vary from two and one-half to five feet and is so constructed that the entire system can be drained for the winter to insure it against freezing and broken pipes.

The Golf Club always has been a popular place with district golfers and future visits there will be even more enjoyable now that the courses are to have green and fresh fairways during the hottest spells. Jewish Centers Track Meet Set Nearly 175 entries In four classes have been received for the fourth annual Jewish Centers track and field meet to be held Sunday, June 5, at the Belle Isle Athletic Field, It will start at 10:30 a. m.

ANN ARBOR, DEARBORN LEAD IN GOLF REGIONAL ANN ARBOR, May 28 Ann Ar bor and Dearborn high schools qualified for next Saturday's State golf finals at Grand Rapids by leading in today's regional meet.

There must be a gradual tapering off rather than an abrupt stop, and that is what Stanage sought. Likes His New Game Semi-pro baseball, with games at week-ends, was open to him.

It is the course taken by Bobby Veach, another of the catcher's former Tiger teammates. But Stanage figured he had his fill of baseball as a player and desired something new and diverting. Having played golf on occasions when still in baseball, he decided to adopt It. Now he is glad that he did as he likes the game and it is keeping him fit. His waistline is not much larger than when he was back of the bat every day, stooping and blocking wild pitches and runners.

Like others new to golf, Stanage vowed at the start that he would play only for the sport and the exercise. He had no desire to become expert in his new game. But he has been improving steadily and now scores in the early nineties consistently. Anyone can guess the rest; he wants to be an eighty shooter. He figures he then will be satisfied, but he might as well know that when he gets down around 80 he will be looking ahead to the time when he can score in the seventies.

Golf is that way. Wastes Little Effort Stanage was one of the most graceful catchers of all time, a stylist. He always seemed to be In a position to throw and got his tosses away with little preliminary motion or effort That was char acteristlc of his entire play back of the bat; It always appeared effortless. The same grace is noticeable to a certain degree in his golf. He has a smooth and rythmic swing, particularly with his woods, and like most baseball players who have taken up golf he is a long driver.

Undoubtedly the swing developed in the other game helps them, even though the two swings are supposed to differ, greatly. But the irons well, that's something else again. Stanage com plains that he hasn't been able to conquer them, that missed shots and shots off line with these clubs run up his scores. In this, though, he Is no different than other golfers. The irons cause even the expert players most of their trouble.
