Ore., Aug. 21 —tfP)— Byron Nelson, depending national professional golf champion who prefers medal to match play, strakes his title today in a pair of 18-hold "sudden death" matches at the Portland golf club. Nelson, who automatically quali- led. sat out yesterday's second 10-hole qualiying round to catch up on his correspondence. On the eve of the match play Nelson seemed more concerned with what might happen to him Thursday. "I'll have to play either Herman Barron or Herman Keiser Thursday if I get through— and theyr'e plenty touch when you've only got 18 holes to maneuver in." Nelson gloomed. The tournament medalist, big Jim Perrier, erstwhile Australian now of San Francisco, was matched against Sam Schneiber of Houston, Tex., in a lower bracket feature. Ferrier shattered par and PGA records yesterday with a nine-tinder-par 29-34 — 63, which, with his previous day'.s 71 gave him a medal score of 134. The old mark was held jointly by Fred Morrison of San Francisco and Frank Moore, Overland, Mo., with 130. All the name players got through the qualiying round. They included gangling E. J. "Dutch" Harrison of Little Rock, Ark., who carded a 65-71 — 136 for second plaace Hogan, who had a 68-69 — 137 for third place: Chick Harbert, Northville, Mich., who had 68-70— 1388; George Fazio, Los Angeles, 1946 Canadian open champ,p p p73-67 i —140; ,Vic Ghezzi. 1941 champ from. Knoxville, Tenn., 69-71 —141; and Jimmy Demaret . Houston, Tex., Sam Byrd, Detroit; Herman Barron, 1946 Tam p'Shanter winner from White Plains, N. Y., and Herman Keiser, Akron, O., with 142. Harold "Jug" McSpaden, Sanford, Maine, had a 68 yesterday and a 143 total. Lawson Little of Monterey, Calif., and Jimmy Thomson of Chicopee, Mass., were among those with 144; Jimmy Hines, , Chicago, who had a scorching-66 on his opening round, blew sky-high to 80 for a 146; and the joint "world champs" —Sam Snead; British open titlist and Lloyd Mangrum, XJ.

Quick-Freezing Is Safe Quid-freezing is one of the most • valuable methods' of preserving food and preventing bac- lerial -develriDment. Quick-frozen foods lose little of their, nutritive value, but they must be eaten shortly after" thawing and they must not be refrozen. Canning foods involves 'Mie destruction by heat of all germs which are present .and the-prevention by an airtight seal of the entrance of others. Home-canned meats and vegetables should .be reheated before they are served The most serious infection from home-canned foods is botulism. This germ develops a dendly noi- non as it grows in the food, and it with Tom, Dick, or Harry, and shall they tell him so and ' ask him to go "steady"' with them? Women who are tired of silting on the anxious seat want to know how to bring a dilatory suitor to the proposing point without him suspecting that he is being pushed over the brink. And innumerable, lonely widows desire information about how to acquire a husband who will appreciate a good home and a wife who knows how to cook. No Given Recipe Now. unfortunately, there is no infallible recipe for wooing and winning a man, as there is for making a sponge cake, for men are of different temperaments and have different tastes, and so the ladies that mav be a wow with one will fall flat with another. Hence, the best advice that can be given to the husband-hunter is to sludy. her game, learn Us habits and ascertain which are its most vulnerable spots.

I said I would love lo, bul sccrelly I thought I would prefer to simply gaze at her for the afternoon. The house was now a mere secondary attraction. I managed finally to take my eyes away from her and meekly would have promised to bear cheerfully any insults Mrs. Filzgerald might heap upon me. 'Come on," she said.

Her movements were all quick and she used ner hands a great deal as she talked. At the door of the Professor's study, which was off the dininR room, she stopped. "We'll jus' peek in here," she said, "we won' go inside. If we disturbed any thing, we'd be drawn nnd quar tercd." She laughed then, and i was the first '/me I heard tha nervous little laugh of hers. I surprised me somehow, there wa such a shrill note in ii. The study was an ordinary room and dusty but to me i was the room of a great ma and I should not have presumet to cross its threshold, even if she invited me to do so. I have said before that I had always stood in awe of Mark Fitzgerald. At him, this would have considerably this time, before I had even met understated my feelings. I was actually terrified at the thnucht of living in the same house with him. I knew that at the Academy' they laughed at his touch of brogue,, admired and resjjccted the brilliance of his. mind and feared his • sarcasm. Also, • I had seen his books at the Lynchester public library, serious - lonkin*? volumes which I had heard referred to as a distinctive collection of essays. He had, of course, been offered. much higher teaching positions, one at Trinity College in Dublin. Ireland, his own Alrha Mater. There were many who considered such an eminent man frightfully wasted here in this little Massachusetts town of Lynchester, teaching science at an obscure academy for boys. But as I have pointed out, the Fitzgeralds paid little or no heed to what others thought or expected, bu did as they pleased. Nevertheless, Mark Fitzgerald was to surprise me in many ways that summer. There was his interest in the old-fashioned flower garden that he dug and weeded and cultivated with as much concentration as if it were the most' important thing in the world. And 1 he untiring patience with whic'i ho worked a tutorink two dull, over- grown boys who had to pass their exams in order lo play Jootball in the fall. Father Gene, it seemed, was an ardent football fan and without these two creatures the team would be crippled. There was also Mark's unexpected speech of gratitude to me. , But I should not speak of these , things here. They came later. I Now, standing in the study doorway, Miss Cluilotte began to talk of Mark. With shining i eyes, she lold me that he planned I to lake his sabbatical year when they were married and they would honeymoon in Europe. But everything depended on Aunt Houura, she added seriously. "Poor Aunt Honora, We're really very worried about her." She laid her hand on my arm. "She's a very sick woman, Cecelia," she said. "Please don't mind, if she seems—well, a little cross, She suffers so much." And at the sight of tears in I looked up at the large oil painting over the fireplace and :ontinued to look in stupefied si- erice. For the woman in the pic- ,uce'<was handsome, aristocratic, even noble-looking. No resemblance at all had she to Ihe poor, shrunken creature in the huge walnut bed upstairs. I shivered a little «nd I think it was then .hat I received my first faint ealization of the change lime' makes in all of us. It was while I was still gazing al Ihe portrait thai Ellen came, flushed with indignation, to find oul whal was keeping me. "It's all my fault, Ellen," Charlotle said contritely. "I was show, ing her the house. I'm sorry." Cousin Ellen cooled off somewhat at this, bul she sniffed several limes while we were preparing dinner and lold mo that since 1 had wasted so much time, she could not now show me how to .serve. So tonight she would do it herself, while I helped dish up in the kitchen. But, mind, in the future I was to serve all meals. being pushed around, that they have lost their spunk.
