OQ Nt-WS SECTJ.OT 5. f 5 New Tork, May 30 (AP) Scarcely less hazardous than the sport itself is the task of trying to "dope" the American open golf championship, to be played next Thursday, Friday and Saturday over the upper course of the Bal-tusrol Golf Club, Short Hills, N. J. Under normal playing conditions, anything can happen in an open tournament. When the elements take a hand, a3 they did at Oak-mont last year, all bets are off. The combinetion of the pace and the pressurt will be felt by som 170 players, amateur and professional, who rualified for trie ?2-ho!e finals this week by reason of being among; the top 30 last year, passing sectional tests or getting special dispensation. Two Japanese professionals, Torchy Toda and Chick Chin, and the home club pro. Johnny Farrell, are the beneficiaries of special favor, but they are on their own from now on. NEW CHAMP LOOMS. For the battle of Baltusrol, the nearest to "sure things" are (1) that a new champion will be crowned to replace Samuel Mo-Laughin Parks, Jr., (2) that the scoring pace will be the fatest in years, and (3) that no shots will be hit out of bounds. No boundaries are within reasonable distance on any hole of the upper of Baltusrol's two courses. It is doubtful whether a player could drive the ball out of bounds, even if he tried to. This factor, plus the knowledge that the club is making no special effort to a -1 "toughen" the par 72 layout, should lessen the strain under which the professionals tackled Oakmont's formidable course last June. It's even money that 290 will be broken. There's a good chance, tinder favorable weather conditions, that the victor will crack the longstanding open championship mark of 286. Chick Evans of Chicago, the veteran amateur who set the record at Minkahda in 1916, and Gene Sarazen, who equaled it at Fresh Meadow in 1932, both will bo among the starters at Baltusrol. COURSE ALTERED. Past performances at Baltusrol in championship competition offer no line on scoring possibilities, how ever. The amateur tournaments ot 1904 and 1926, as well as the national onal ' opens of 1903 and 1915, were held there, but the original course has opens of 1903 and 1915, were held has been altered and a new layout built Bince the last title affair. Willie Anderson won the 1903 open with a tcore of 307 and Jerome D. Travers, the Bobby Jones of his day, beat the professionals in 1915 with a total of 297. The present course is 66. ' Broadway bookmakers, who have taken up golf only in recent years and still regard the whole situation with many misgivings, have established Henry Picard. tall Hershey (Pa.) professional as 9 to 1 favorite. They rate Horton Smith, Johnny TlevoUa, Gene Sarazen, Bobby Cruickshank. Harry Cooper ana Craig Wood as Picard s foremost , rivals. It is a formidable list but : bv no means certain to produce the winner. There are at least 20 professionals with a chance to succeed Parks, the first defending champion to be rated no better than a 50-to-l shot to repeat. Resourceful and well-liked, Parks nevertheless was the beneficiary of extraordinary circumstances at Oakmont, where moat of the top-notchers either beat themselves or were victims of the storm. OX GROUND EARLY. Sam has been on the ground parly, tuning up his shots, but it is doubtful if he lands in the money. Sarazen's chances, rated the best of any of the nine former champions in the field, have not been enhanced by the Gentleman Farmer's blow-ups in his last twj tournaments. Gene's control deserted him after he got off in front In both the Metropolitan and Massa-chusettcs Opens. He finished eighth at Quaker Ridge and fourth atand Holy Cross 6 each.

J., club in competition, and Harold (Jug) Mc-Spaden, former Kansas City sharpshooter now attached to a club at Winchester, Mass. Nelson outplayed an all-star field in the met open. McSpaden finished on top in the Massachusetts test. They have been rated among the long shots, but may be ripe for a killing at Baltusrol. G11EZZI LONG HITTER. Also to consider are the chances Of Jimmy Thomson, the broad-shouldered bomber who was runner-up to Parks last year; Vic Ghczzi, another tremendous hitter who will not have to worry about out-of-bounds hazards; Paul Run-yan, master of the short game who has yet to play his best game in the open; Ray Mangrum, Ted Turner and Alvin (Butch) Krucger, a trio of "dark horses." Mangrum is a Texas product, Turner the pro at terrifying Pine Yalley, and Krucger, the Wisconsin entry woh paced the field for the first round at Oakmont. Aside from Johnny Goodman, the Ncbraskan who won the 1933 open at Chicago, the amateur contenders offer few threats. Sam Perry of Birmingham, former southern amateur champion who paced the sectional trials, does not plan to compete. Of the former winners, Sarazen, Farrell, Tommy Armour, Walter Hagcn, Bill Burke and Olin Dutra will lend color to the festivities. mm - $ tm f mm .

Philadelphia, May 30 (AP) In the first all-Eastern race for team honors since pre-war days Cornell University emerged with a decisive, dramatic triumph today in the sixtieth intercollegiate A. A. A. A. track and field championships, A Memorial Dav erowd of less i ..,,, ,i(nne...j h ,: .i TT4kwjv,u mi, close of the two-day competition, : fastcr than Dave Komoncn-s mark i but ivy-clad tradition was all overj0f 2:43:26.-,. Mel Porter of New the premises as the big red array i from Ithaca, N. Y.. clearly the best-, balanced on Franklin Field, returned to championship heights for the first time in 17 years. In a meet devoid of record performances except for a new track mark of 47.1 seconds by Syracuse's great Eddie O'Brien in the 400 meters run, Cornell outpointed j Harvard. Dartmouth ar.l Pittsburgh in that order, and brought the team trophy back East after a lapse of a aozcn years. Yale in 1924 was the last Eastern university to lift the, team prize, which had gone to the tar west 14 times in the last IS years. FAIL TO SEND TEAMS. The California "Big Three" was not represented this year, as Southern California, winner in 1935 for the seventh time, let the championship go by default. Cornell finished on top with a total of 29 '4 points, scoring in eight of of the 15 events and enjoying an approximate margin of 10 points over its nearest rival, Harvard, which barely nosed out Dartmouth for second place, 19 1621 points to 19 37. Pittsburgh, thanks to a double in the sprints for Edgar Mason, a sophomore sensation, landed fourth with 18 points. Manhattan was fifth with 15 and Pennsylvania sixth, with 14. Other team scores: Princeton, 13; Yale, lO'J; Rhode Island, 10; Syracuse and Bates, 8 each; Maine, 7; Brown, Fordham, points, winning the discus at 158 feet, l1i inches, and finishing sec ond to Tony Goniawiez of Dartmouth in the shot put with a toss of 49 feet, inch. The climax to the Ithacans' victorious drive came in the 3,000-meters run, which was won in a smashing stretch drive by Herbert H. Cornell, sophomire from Brooklyn, and a distant relative of the founder of the upstate institution, Ezra Cornell. Figured to be lucky if he picked up a single point, the youthful Cornell man overhauled Jim Rafferty or t ordham to win by inches, and carried along a teammate, Howard Welch, who landed fourth place, just behind the favorite, Wilbur Woodland of Yale, The seven points gained for the Cornellians in the this event clinched the meet and offset the disappointment caused by the failure of Captain Bob Lin-ders to score in the 400 or John Messersmith to. reach the final of the low hurdles. Altogether nine athletes shared in Cornell's point-scoring. Charley Scott, despite a bad knee, tied for second place in the high jump and Bob Scallan picked up four points by running second to Mason in the 200-meters final. Two javelin toss-ers, Elliott Hooper and Don Houpt, finished fourth and fifth. Grandin Godley took fourth in the 110 meters high hurdles and Johnny Mca-den squeezed into fifth place in the 800 to complete the scoring list. Bill McMahon i In National Washington, May 30 (AP) Wil-, (, , j - liam T. (Bill) McMahon, who has ! been knocking on the door to marathon championships for four years, finally banged his way inside here . today with a record-breaking national A. A. U. victory that likely earned him a post on America's , Olympic team. The slender, 119-pound Worches-! ter, Mass., athlete, who finished second a month ago in Boston's marathon, won by 200 yards from Johnny Kelley of Arlington, Mass., in a race so swift that the first three finishers broke the course record. McMahon pulled away from Kel lev in the stretch to win the event, sponsored by the Washington Star, ! . . York also beat the Komonen time m taking third place. Pat Dengis, the Baltimore air plane mechanic who won last year, set a blistering pace for the first 15 miles cracking records for 5, 10, and 15 miles but faltered after IS miles when troubled by the same kidney ailment that forced him out of the Boston race last month. He finished eighth. The twenty-six-year-old McMahon, m unemployed nickle-platpr, was in the van all the way. He never , CHANCEV1EW Is Much Of Surprise In Driving Down In Front In Hawthorne Feature. Arcaro Pilots Flanigan's Horse To Victory Billy Jones Is Second, Carvola Third, Chicago, 111., May 30-(AP) Chanceview, a big son of Chance Shot, gave nine other thoroughbreds a good view of his flying heels today as he sped to a surprise victory in Hawthorne's $5,Ono adde'i Decoration Day Handicap before a holiday throng of 25,000 biggest attendance in the history of Chicago's oldest track. Accorded little support by the crowd that jammed and crammed the stands, Chanceview, racing in the blue and white silks of J. F. Flanigan of Louisville, Ky., re sponded to ICddie Arcaro s energetic ride in the stretch to win the mile and a sixteenth feature over I. C. Wordcn's Billy Jones, the favorite, by a length and a half. E. K. Bryson's Carvola closed fast to land in third place. The victor raced the distance in 1:46. Arcaro kept the four-year-old son of Ccrance Shot, which has been hampered by injuries through most of its racing, in a contending position all the way. As the field rounded the stretch turn the little Italian jockey sent Chanceview after Billy Jones. He caught the leador in a dozen strides and came on to win $4,350 for his owner. Chanceview rewarded his backers with $14.20 straight, .$6.40 to place, and $5 to show. Billy Jones paid $4.60 and $3.40, while the show price on Carvola was $6.80. Mrs. Ethel V. Mais's Whiskolo, which finished third behind Omaha and Roman Soldier in the 1935 Kentucky Derby, was in third place on the last turn, but faded badly and wound up ninth. PLATAK IS CHAMPION. IjO.s Angeles, May 30 (AP) Joe Platak, slim Chicago swatter, won the national A. A. U. handball singles championship for the second consecutive year today, defeating- Dan Marble, burly San Francisco policeman, in straight sets, 213, 21-10. Is In Front Marathon Race let Dengis get out of sight. He ... was eighth after five miles, seventh after 10 miles, and second after : 15 miles. Trailing Dengis by 100 yards when Pat began to falter, Mc- Mahon. and Kelley, who had kept in stride with him' most of the wav. moved ahead as thev crossed Memoriai Bridge into Washington on the Mount Vernon-to-White House route. Kelley, who won the .Boston race last, year, maicnea steps with him through the city and up ver steep Capitol Hill. However, as they came downhill onto Constitution Avenue and the home stretch, McMahon began to pull away and gradually increased his lead. Augustus Johnson, Port Chester, N. Y., Negro, was fourth, with Fred Ward, New York; Joseph Mundy, tit i . n.'n nt..; t tr i. . Dengis, and Leo Giard finishing in that order. The team championship went to the Millrose Athletic Club of New York, with Ward, Mundy, and Stel-ner finishing ahead of any three representatives of any other club. The American Olympic Marathon team is to be selected on a basis of performances in the Boston and Washington Marathons. It is believed that Ellison Brown, who won at Boston, and McMahon are sure 1 of positions, with third selection to be announced later by the Olympic Committee. Three Dead Heats New York, May 30 (AD Dead heats, once a rarity, were almost common on the American turf today as even the "electric eye" failed to select the winner in two races at Rockingham Park and one at Detroit. In the one-mile third event at Rockingham Park, two outsiders, the Corsicana Stahle's Blessed Event and Mrs. F. C. Dunn's Bye Bye Mary, finished all square. As if that was not enough for one day, the Suburban Stable's Rock I'olnt and XV. Elliott's Miss Careful failed to reach a decision In the mile and one-sixteenth of the sixth race. At Detroit it was F. L. Tal-ley's Modesto and J. N. Crof-ton's Tug o' War, a son of Man o' War, that came down to the wire in the six-furlong third number perfectly aligned. NEW MATERIAL GOOD On Japanese Swim Squad To Give TJ. S. Team Fight. Tokyo, May 30 (AP) Japan's Olympic swimming team trials today uncovered a wealth of new material to help stand off America's challenge for aquatic honois at Berlin. Outstanding among the new stars was Shunpei Udo of R'ikkyo University who won the 1,500-meter free style finals in 19 minutes 45.6 seconds. The veteran Shozo Makino was unable to do better than fourth. Udo also won a heat in the 400-meter free style in 4:5.4, the day's best showing. The 200 meters final was cap-juied by Masaji Taguchi of Rikkyo University in 2:14.8, with last year's flash, Masanori Yusa, finishing fifth. Yusa came back to capture a heat in the 100-meter free style in 0:56.4. Other best time trials were in the 200-meter breast stroke, won by Rcizo Koike in 2:43.2 and the 100-meter backstroke, which Yau-hiko Kojima covered in 1:09.8.

League officials say that the games already played have produced the best baseball shown for an early date in the eighteen-year-old organization. Today's battles again are expected to draw near capacity crowds. At- tendance figures to date have soared above last year's mark as in- terest is at a high mark for semi-' nrA Kaaah-ill 5 - ("Ifoataf PinfinnoH . The schedule this afternoon pits ' the Beecos against the Bavarian Brewers at Bavarian Park, Covington, the Feldhaus Builders vs. Heidelberg Student Prince at Riesenberg Park, Reading, and fhe champion Potters vs. Cheviot at the latter park. What may prove the hardest fought game may be the clash of Potters and Cheviot although both are low in the race. Gaining their first victory of the season, the champions of 1935 naturally will be out to make it two in a row. CHEVIOT BEATEN TWICE. Cheviot, however, has suffered two straight defeats and will be eager to get back on the right side of the ledger again so both clubs will be playing to keep out of the cellar. Tied for first place with three wins and one defeat the Beeco Monuments, headed by Gordie Bachman, are counting on taking a fall out of the Bavarians. Bachman has his club at the head of the pro cession, deadlocked with the Feld haus Builders, and will be greatly disappointed if his boys take it on the chin this afternoon. The Bavarians, however, are just the club that may beat the Beecos. The breaks have been against them in several of their games but Manager Gene Kennedy has high hopes of gaining his third league win and believes his club will be equal to the occasion. Another battle that will be keenly fought will be the Feldhaus-Heidel-berg struggle. The Feldhaus Builders who are deadlocked with the Beecos, see nothing but victory ahead for them, but the Princes who are a tough team to down are primed to knock Feldhaus from the top. PENDLETON TO HURL. Lefty Pendleton may be just the pitcher to turn back the Builders. He is classed among the leading twirlers in the circuit and if his mates hit and give him capable backing in the field, he promises to turn the trick. Rube Iredale will oppose him. The Beecos will pitch Jack Condon, who Is going like a house afire against Bavarians, with Mike Cassinl in opposition. Cheviot will start either Lefty Wagner or Pack Reinert. The Potters will use Si Cramer, their old stand-by. COLLEGE BASEBALL. Columbia 1, Princeton 11 At Providence, R. I. Harvard 1, Brown 2. At Middletown, Conn. Wesleyan 3, Connecticut 8tate 1.

Toledo Scott, defending Class A champion, and wearer of the crown the last two years, finished in third place, behind Sandusky, while Glendale, 1935 Class B titleholder, finished behind Oberlin and Upper Sandusky. It was the second straight year as runner-up for Arlington. GLENDALE IS THIRD. The three leaders' scores in each division were: Class A, Cleveland East Tech, 32; Sandusky, 27, and Toledo Scott, 23 512; Class B: Oberlin, 25; Upper Arlington, 21, and Glendale, 18. Nine new meet records were written into the books, six of them as results of changes in the rules. Bob Curtis of Cleveland Shaw turned in a 4:24.6 mile in the Class A division, upsetting the old record by 3.9 seconds, and knocking a tenth off the mark set by Glenn Cunningham in the Chicago National Interscholastics in 1930, which the books still recognize as the record.

JOHX DOES IT ALONE. Probably the greatest one-man performance was given by John Saunders of Glendale, who with his brother, Joe, won the Class B crown a year ago when they scored 28 points between them. Today John competed as the lone entrant from his school, but Glendale finished third as he romned to new records in both the high and low hurdles events, and then won the 100-yard dash for three first places. Dodd Whittaker of Sandusky, winner a year ago, hiked the pole vault mark to 13 feet 3 inches for a new record, his brother Jim finishing second. Both medley relay marks go into the books as. records, since this was the first time the event ha3 been run. The low hurdles were cut from 220 yards to 200 yards, and the height of the high hurdles was slashed three inches, as a result of rule changes this year, and the marks in those events are new one3.

Led by Eric Pedley, who scored 10 goals, the Americans broke through the stiffest defense they have met this year to win in preparing for the international competition at Hurlingham next month. Winston guest scored three for the United States team, and Mike Phipps scored the other two. Steward Iglchart completed the American team. The Irish players, Captain B. 3. Fowler, Captain M. P. Ansell, Captain G. E. Palmer and Captain H. P. Guiness, counted one goal each. Indianapolis, May 30 (AP) Champion of all Speedway champions, Louis Meyer, just 32 years old and the only three-time winner in the hlstoiy of the five-hundred-mile Indiamipolls marathon, said today as he sat in the winner's in-closure: "Tell everyone for me that I am not going to quit just because I won for the third time. I am not through with racing. Racing is what I like most. I am going to be back in there next year to win. Just wait and see." The average race driver considers his competitive career complete if he once gets the checkered flag at the Speedway. Louis also won In 1928 and 1933, but he described today's grind, in which he set a new speed mark, as the most fun. "This was the most marvelous race in which I've ever driven, and, believe me, I was happier to get the flag than ever before." he said. "I had darned tough luck before this race, as you know. I had motor trouble and breakdowns galore. If you don't believe I worked to win this race, you should have been in my garage for the last month. "I'm not kiddln' you. I worked night and day to get the car In shape. But she sure ran when I got her fixed. "I didn't figure I had won the race until I got the chaskered flag. That was on account of the gasoline. Gasoline was my biggest worry. I was sure of the car, but the gas I held my breath. "But yon know, I had plenty of gas left. I could have gone plenty of miles farther." Grimy with dirt as he drove off the track Louis' first request was for a bottle of milk. "Be sure to give my crew plenty of credit," he said between drinks. "If it wasn't for them I never woulg have won. Dale Drake, Lawson Harris, Carl Effman, Floyd Glgax, and Kenneth Wenz, my crew, had my car in perfect shape. Without that, you know, the best driver in the world cannot win." Meyer said he would celebrate his triple victory with a "private party" i tonight-"Just my wife and my friends who have been 'with me' all along." The Meyers, who live in Huntington Park, Calif., have a son, Louis Meyer, Jr., age 5. "And believe me," Lou said, "I think he is going to be a race driver, too." COCKER SPANIELS LEAD i Tn tjoct 'RpsMBrrflHnTie "SI nn nnn , uo registrations i)l,JUg,UUU tri. n si'Ki'iw. niKPvrrjT to tiik PNorniFn. Ncw York, May 30 The value of pure-bred dogs in the United States has been increased by $1,480,000. Since the beginning of 1936, according to an estimate released today -at the headquarters of The American Kennel Club, governing body of registered dog activities in America. This figure Is reached by placing a minimum valuation of $50 each on the 29,600 specimens recorded by the A. K. C. up to April 30. In the same period of 1935 there were 23,550 registered. Cocker spaniels are now widening their lead over Bostons. During April there were 948 cockers registered against 704 in the same month of 1935; while Bostons had 919 in April this year, against 95 in the corresponding month last year. Cockers are in first place for the third straight month this year, and now have a total of 3,956, against a total of 3,868 Bostons. These figures are In striking contrast to 1935, when the Bostons led at the end of four months, 3,757 to 2,694. Apparently, the American dog-loving public is in process of selecting a new national dog. The great popularity of these two breeds has not had any ill effect on registrations of the other breeds, for there are 15 varieties that have monthly registrations o! more than 100 specimens each. In third place are Scottish terriers, with 690. BASEBALL THROWING MARK Is Established By Jack Ewald In O. M. I. Field Day.
