INVERNESS CLUB, Toledo, Ohio,
July 3. - (P) .- George Von Elm,
sore thumb and all, stormed over
the no-man's land of ruggedold
Inverness with one of the wildest
finishes the golfing world ever sawa
today to snatch a one-shot lead in
the bitter fight for the national op-1

threats when he finished the out-1
ward nine of his second 18-hole
round, the lion-hearted Prussian1
ripped up the backward stretch
with an astonishing 32, four under

him a second round of 69 and a
36-hole total of 144, one better than

ticut, who previously had looked

Dark Horses Stay.
Von Elm's pertormance was the
high spot in a wild day, which saw
all of yesterday's dark horses stay
in the big show, the almost failure
of the famous Tommy Armour to
qualify, a hle in one by Leo Diegel,
andthe final fade-out of the last
foreign threat for the coveted title
vacated by the retirement of Bob-,
Two other members of the Fri-
day's dark horse quartet didn't
equal their first round tallies of 71,
but they did get 75, good enough for
a tie, fr fourth place. They were
Herman Barron, of Port Chester,
N. Y.,who scored 35-40, and Charlie
Diest of Deal, N. J., who did just
the opposite, going and coming to-;
day with a 40-35.
Paulsen Ties Smith. o -
Guy Paulsen, a newcomer to na-
tional open warfare, from Fort
Wayne, Indiana, came in with a 72
to add to his first round total of
74 to tie the veteran McDonald
Smith, of New York, for the next
spot in the standing with a 148.f
Five others were tied at 48, in-
cluding Diegel, whose ace came on
the 146-yard third tee. The others
were Walter Hagen, who scared an-
other 74 after a great start in the
outward nine with a par 35, Mor-

tied for the lead yesterday with a
71, and who came back with a 77;
Johnnie Farrell, who jumped back
into the running with a 70, the sec-
ond best round of the tournament;
and Joe Turnesa, White Plains, N.
Y., who had rounds of 73-75. Dieg-
el's rounds were 75-73.
Sarazen, Armour Fare Badly.
Gene Sarazen and Armour, the
two hand-picked candidates to suc-
ceed Bobby Jones, fared badly ol
their tours over the Inverness traps
and narrow fairways today. Sara-
zen csored a 78, which added to his
74 of yesterday, gave m ha ' i-
tal, eight away from Von Elm, while
Armour, visibly tired, got a horri-
ble 83 which boomed his score to
158, the qualifyinig borderline. Sa-
razen did have some tough breas
today, but Armour just didn't play
his usual game.
Fifty-three qualified at Armour's
158 total for the right to play in the
final 36-hole round tomorrow.
Rounds of 18 holes will be played
in the morning and afternoon

Hopes that the day would bring
forth a successful termination to
the Franco-American negotiations
were widely expressed today.
Optimism prevailed in French
and American circles as well as in
the press that tonight's meeting be-
tween Premier Laval and Secretary
Mellon would be productive of an
agreement and speedy execution of

It was learned from reliable
sources that the French delegates
had retreated from their position
on important issues which have
thus far caused a deadlock. It was
understood that while certain tech-
nical matters remain to be adjust-"
ed the modified American viewpoint
had been accepted.
France has agreed to give Ger-
many ten or more years to refund
a loan based- on the unpostponable
payments of the Young plan, it was
said, and has agreed that the funds
shall go entirely to Germany with-
out regard for other central Euro-
France to Put up Bond.
France was understood further
to have accepted a plan whereby
she would deposit treasury bonds
with the world bank to cover her

forced to declare a moratorium at
the end of the holiday. This point
had been one of the chief stum-

CHAMNPION WINS BY TECHNICAL
KNOCKOUT 14 SECONDS BEFORE .
FINAL BELL [AS 35,000 WATCH
Young Stribling Experiences Worst Defeat
of Career as Schmeling Upsets
Advance Dope on Battle.
CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 3-(P)-With only 14 seconds to go
before the final bell, Young Stribling, his title hopes battered and
crushed, went tumbling down to defeat before the sensational closing
charge of the black-browed fighter from Germany, Max Schmeling.
The twenty-five year old Teuton slugger, in a smashing finish
to his surprising rout of the gallant Georgian's last defense, won on
a technical knockout in the fifteenth round and put beyond dispute
his right to the heavyweight championship of the world.
Stribling, bleeding, badly punished, and thoroughly whipped
throughout the last half of the fight, went down for the first time
from a crushing right to the chin in his own corner as the
final few seconds were swiftly passing. The Georgian was barely
able to get to his feet at the count of nine and as Schmeling rushed
toward him the crowd yelled wildly to "stop it" and the referee,

FLYERS WILL VISIT;
Senator Bingham Will Securee
Congressional Medals I
for Post, Gatty.-
NEW YORK, July 3.-(IP) -A
nation's apreciation is to be shownI
Wiley Post and Harold Gatty forI
their flight around the world. A
week-end yachting trip wil enable
them to recuperate from the rigors
of the flight and the enthusiasm of
New York city's welcome, and on
Monday they will go to Washington#
to be President Hoover's guests.
Eventually congressional honors
are in store for them. Senator,
Hiram Bingham of Connecticut
said Thursday night at a dinner in
the flyers' honor that he would
introduce a resolution awarding
them Congressional Medals.
Before a week-end of rest the
flyers had to do a little more of;
their specialty, fly the Winnie Mae
from Roosevelt Field, Long Island,
to Floyd Bennett Airport, Brook-
lyn, where it will be on public ex-'
hibition for three days.
The flyers were guests of the
Detroit Aircraft corporation at the.
dinner in the New York Athletic
club Thursday night. Among the
guests were three other 'round-the-
world travelers-Lieut. Leslie Arn-
old, U.S.A.; John Henry Mears and
Col. E. S. Evans.
Also there were Amelia Earhart,
trans-Atlantic flyer, Dr. James S.
Kimball, weather forecaster for
flyers, Elinor Smith, aviator, F. Tru-
bee Davison, assistant secretary of
war in charge of aviation, Clarence
Young, assistant secretary of com-
merce in charge of aeronautics.
President Hoover wired the fly-
ers at the dinner telling them
America is proud of them and
praising their striking contribution
to aeronautical progress.
The flyers and their wives are
delighted at the welcome given
them by New York City, which in-
volved a parade up Broadway to
City hall for formalities. Ticker
tape and torn books and paper
showered upon them totaled three
tons, 70 tons less than heaved in
the direction of Col. Charles A.
Lindbergh when he returned from
Paris, but there has been a steady
effort by busines houses and city
authorities to discourage such man-
ifestations of delight.
"How proud our three children
are going to be!" remarked Mrs.
Gattyin expressing her pleasure
over the welcome.
Post and Gatty have disclosed no
plans for future activities. F. C.

sored the -flight, has said he will
send the Winnie Mae to Oklahoma
and later give it to his "lttle girl,"
stepped between the two, lifting
the ferman's hand immediately in
token of triumph.
It was a sudden and dramatic
climax to the championship battle
fought in Cleveland's magnifi-
cent new stadium on the shore of
Lake Erie before a crowd estimated
at 35,000 spectators, who contribu-
ted to an approximate "gate" of
$325,000, one of the smallest in
heavyweight title history since the
post-war boom days began.
The crowd saw Schmeling toss
most of the advance dope into the
lake and hand Stribling the worst
defeat of his career.
Stribling was still on his feet,
groggy and reeling when Referee
Blake stopped the fight after 2
minutes, 46 seconds of the final
round, but the rangy southerner
was a sorry sight, bleeding from
cuts around both eyes, his nose, and
Last 7 Rounds Schmeling's.
Stribling was given the first
three rounds and the eighth, which
he carried off with his -last rally.
The fourth was scored as even, al-
though its closing minutes marked
the first turn of the fight in
Schmeling's favor. Stribling sel-
dom has looked better, faster, or
smarter than in those. first three
rounds. He easily outfooted the
German, who advanced slowly be-
hind a shield of arms and gloves
He tied up Max easily and twice
in the third round jarred the Ger-
man with stiff right crosses. He
seemed off to a characteristic start,
with the situation well in hand,
until he suddenly seemed to wilt
in the fourth round.
At the turning point, in the
fourth, Schmeling finally began to
get the range. His short right and
left bothered Stribling.
Rating his pace nicely, Schmel-
ing kept crowding Stribling through
the next three rounds. He rocked
the American with rights to the
head in the sixth as he absorbed
Stribling's stiffest counter-wallops.
Stribling's right eye was cut in
the seventh. He was fast tiring
but he had enough reserve to'come
out strongly in the eighth. This
was the Georgian's last show of ef-
fectiveness, as he belted Max with
long rights to the body and kept
with the situation well in hand, un-
til he suddenly seemed to wilt in
the fourth round.
From there on, it was a bloody
rout. Stribling was out on his feet
in the tenth, barely able to stagger
to his corner after absorbing ter-
rific punishment, but persistently
as he tried, Schmeling could not
bring Stribling down through the
next four rounds. The German
shifted his attack to the body, scor-
ing with sharp lefts. He had the
American hanging on desperately
It appeared almost certain that

finish until he was forced back and
