'New Ball Satisfactory.
Says New UJS.G.A. Head
ii Incoming Speech
NEW YORK, Jan. 7.--(AP)-The
1933 National Amatear Golf cham-
pionship was awarded the Kenwood
Country Club at Cincinnati and the
National Open at Glenview, Ill., as
the United States Golf Association,
at its annual meeting today, formally
installed a new slate of officer,=
headed by President Herbert Jaques
of Boston.
Tn his report for the implement
and ball committee, President Jaques
said the new ball, 1.68 inches in dia-
meter and 1.62 ounces in weight
continued to prove as satisfactory as
it had since inauguration Jan. 1.
19J32
"The reaction is so entii'ely favor-
albe," Jaques reported, "that in re-
viewing the season's play of 1932
your committee feels its original pur,
pose hay been fulfilled: to product
a better and Pleasanter ball with
which to play the game of golf."
The membership summary shower
that 56 clubs, presumably because of
financial reasons, had withdrawn
from the U. S. G. A. during the year,
but the addition of 34 new clubs left
a total of 1,138.
In his address, incoming President
Jaques paid tribute to retiring Pres-
ident Ramsay and warned that "we
are still sailing in troubled waters
with many clubs in financial dis-
tress."

BULGARIAN BOOTERS BOOTED
A Bulgarian football team arriv-
ing at Giurgia, Rumania, for a match
with the Rumanians aroused the sus-
picion of customs officials. A search
revealed that the balls were filled
with Bulgarian cigarets.

The topnotchers among college
vrestlers would win 90 per cent of
heir matches if pitted against the
eneral run of professionals, in the
qpinion of Clifford Keen, wrestling
coach at University of Michigan.
Coach Keen believes that the av-
rage whisker-pulling headlock artist'
nows little of the ancient science of
vrestling and would be helpless
against a college boy, well coached
n fundamentals.
Wrestling as a college sport never
!as been much commercialized, but
he game has become self -sustainin
it Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and other
niddle-western colleges. It has be-
come so popular among students at
Michigan that 90 candidates are try-
ing out for the varsity and freshman
squads.
Keen's explanation for the large
public following of professional
wrestling and the small crowds at
amateur bouts is that "most people
don't understand the game and would
ather see a bunch of actors, pre-
'ending to half kill each other, than
,n honest test of skill."
"These hippodrome affairs have a
lisgusting and nauseating effect on
t student of the wrestling game,"
,oach Keen said Saturday, "because
it is so apparent that professional
bouts are all 'bunko' and a fraud on
the public."
Keen was a champion during his
undergraduate days at Oklahoma
A. & M. He was conference cham-

pion in 1922, 1923 and 1924 and won
the title in the 160-pound class at the
first National Collegiate meet in 1924.
He never was defeated,
Professional wrestling, he has ob-
served, is about 50 per cent head-
locks or other holds which involve
the same principle. Amateurs do not
use these holds because they are no';
practcal if "the game is honest.
The man who tries a headlock is
placed at an immediate disadvantage.
But the public likes the spectacular--
throwing them around.
"Three-quarters of what a wrest-
ler must learn toward securing a
fall," Keen said, "is maneuvering an
opponent into position after getting
him on the mat. These maneuvers
are not spectacular, and the casual
observer can't appreciate what is be-
ing done.. Most of the pros neglect
to learn fundamentals and if sent
against topnotch amateurs would lose
90 per cent of the bouts. There are
some good ones among the pros, but
most of them are merely actors. Of,
course some of the skilled wrestlers

put on shows even though they could
really wrestle if they had to do it."
The primary object of amateur
wrestling is to win, said Coach Keen.
"That's the fundamental difference
between the college and the profes-
sional game. If opponents are at all
evenly matched and both are deter-
mined to win, they must be conserva-
tive. They must pave the way for
position to get holds. But if the affair
is all arranged no one needs to worry.
So the pros are free to go right ahead
and try anything.
"When it's honest, there is no other
sport which requires any more skill,
