JONES RETAINS LEAD
* NBRITISH OPEN BY
TAKING BRILLIANT 72
DEFENDING CHAMPION IS SIX
STROKES UNDER PAR FOR
i FIRST 36 HOLES
MEHLHORNELIMINATED
Hodson, Of Tenby, Wales, Trails Bobby
By Two Strokes; Joe Kirkwood
Holds Third Place
(By Associated Press)
ST.BANDREWS, Scotland, July 14.-
Bobby Jones played his second 'round
of the British open golf championship
-4n 72, one stroke under par, giving
him a total for the two days of 140
and maintaining his lead in defense
of the title he holds. He was a stroke
over par for the first nine but clipped
two strokes off coming home.
Bobby found when he had completed
his round he was leading the field by
two strokes. B. Hodson of Tenby,
Wales, returned a fine 70 today which
coupled with his 72 yesterday gave him
a 36-hole total of 142. Joe Kirkwood
was in third place with 144, made up
of two 72's.
Six Strokes Under 1ar
The champion faced the final 36
hole test tomorrow with an advan-
tage of six strokes under par for the
classic St. Andrews course. He was
five under par with his record equal-
ing 68 score of yesterday and added
another today. Bobby's score of 140
for 36 holes compares with par 146
for two rounds.
Bill Mehihorn was watching Bobby's
score with intense interest for it was
evident that Bobby's 36 hoje count
would detemine the players to remain
'for the' final competition. When Bob-I
by turned in a total of 140 for 36
holes, Bill was eliminated as he had
taken 157 over the same route, more
than 15 strokes behind.
Putting Still Good
Jones' game today was almost as
spectacular as that of yesterday al-
though he was more uncertain from
the tee. He was pulling his drives
today but he- had not misplaced his
putting touch.
The huge gallery about the famous
11th green, made the course ring with
shouts whenhe dropped a long down
hill putt of some 50 feet for a bridle
"Long Jim" Barnes of New Rochelle
N. Y., who scored 76 yesterday; and
another 76 today for a total of 152,
Larry Nabholtz of Sharon, Pa, taking
82 today for a total of 159 eliminated
himself from further competition.
Cyril Tolley played today in par 73,
giving him a score fo the 36 holes of
150.

Is Comedy Of Family Troubles
"Pigs," by Anne Morrison and Pat-
terson McNutt, is a life-like and rio-
tously funny comedy of family trou-
bles on the stage.
The same events in our own house-
hold would be tragic, but on the stage
they are most plausible. But, every-
one knows that stage happenings have
a way of somehow coming out just
right.
After troubles and trials that are so
real they are heart-rending, Junior
Atkins manages to bring a . litter of
sick pigs through an epidemic of chol-
era and, raise enough money to pay
off the family mortgage. His veteri-

outlook for the camp, Mr. Grafton1
stated that it was a matter of time to'
determine what sort of camp it wouldt
be, but, with the facilities they have,
now and the remarkable camp-site, hel
predicted a steady growth for the pro- I
ject. This year two cottages were do- c
nated to the camp, Mr. Grafton an-l
nounced.,
The camp is a welfare project ofi
the Student Christian Association of
the University and its policy is "to
provide safe, wholesome, vigorous
living for boys who are not financially1
able to attend a full pay camp." This2
is the seventh season the camp has
been operated and each year shows an
increase in 'tlie equipment and interest3
in the project.

BURfAL OF DREW
(L3y Associated Press)t
PHILADELPHIA, July 14.-Interred
with undramatic simplicity in ther
presence of only three relatives, the
ashes of John Drew, who died last
week in San Francisco, rested tonight
in the grave of his wife in Mt. Vernon
cemetery here.1
Searing sunlight beat down ont
grassy plots of the burial ground as
a black limousine came to a halt with-{
in the gates of Mrs. Louis Devereaux,{
daughter of the great American actor,
her husband, and Ethel Barrymore,
niece of John Drew, emerged.

to that no'V represented by the degree

sisted upon.
Tend Toward Older Graduates
"It is quite clear that the tendency
in medical education is in the direction
of lengthening and broadening the pre
medical requirement, though this ten-
dency is bang considerably decried
in some quarters as increasing the
age at which men may enter practice.
This criticism does not, however,
seem to me to be a valid one, though
there need be no hesitation in ad-
mitting the fact.
"It is quite certain that, among the
changes which have taken place in the
last generation in the medical pro-
fession and the public, an outstand-
ing one has been the increased will-
ingness of the public to accept at its
full value the services of younger'
men. She day has almost passed when
the public hesitates to accept a phy-
sician as having satisfactory equip-
ment until he has reached middle age.
This means that it.is widely believed
that the younger men are better
equipped than their older colleagues
because of the improvement of late
in medical education. If this esti-
miate of the tendency is sound;, it fol-
lows that the public is expecting more
of the recent graduate, and that he
must, therefore, be in a position to
deserve their confidence.
Sound Judgment Necessary
"Among the qualities necessary in
a satisfactory practitioner is sound-
ness of judgment, a quality which is
rarely, if ever, inherent and it is com-
monly the result of experience. It,
therefore, follows that graduates in
medicine can hardly be expected to
have the maturity of judgment which
the public expects if they are to be
graduated at an age of less than
twenty-six."
