Committee Finds That Title-Holder"
Name Was Used to Advertise
Goods Without Authority. '
NEW YORK, May 21. Vincent Rich
ards, holder of six national tennis titles,
has been officially reinstated to good
standing by the amateur rules com
mittee of the TJ. S. National Lawn Tennis
association, following his resignation
from the employ of a local sporting
goods firm.
The committee announced today that
Richards' restoration to amateur stand
ing will become effective on May 24,
when His connection with the firm ends.
The committee issued the following
"Vincent Richards has resigned his
position in the sporting goods business.
It has been proved to the satisfac
tion of the amateur rules committee
that Mr. Richards' name was used to
advertise the sale of tennis goods with
out his authority, and his action in
withdrawing from the sporting goods
business has removed ail other ques
tion as to his amateur standing.
He has accordingly been officially
reinstated, this to take effect upon the
day of his resignation. In the opinion
of the committee Mr. Richards has set
a splendid example to the players of
the country and his action will go far
toward keeping the standards and ideals
of the sport above reproach."

If the amateurs of the Pacific coast
want to improve, their surest way is to
help the professional to improve.
There is nothing so discouraging to
the average professional as to discover
that his game year after year is at a
standstill, and mainly because the in
centive to practice is absent because of
the lack of competition.
John Black, the Clarcmont Country
club's veteran professional, is practic

that Professional Black displayed
throughout the series of matches he
played last year with Mike Brady and

proved himself the peer of the three

that the Claremont crack will give a

Only 80 more new members are need
ed to fulfill the hopes of the member
ship committee of the Portland Golf

BV friendly suggestions and con
structive criticism, the novice
learns to avoid the errors that are fa
tal to good playing. More than any
thing else, by playing with good play
ers he, consciously and unconsciously,
acquires a mental Idea of correct form
of what he is trying to do. Without
such an ideal practice does little good,
but with a clear ideal to work toward
in practice, improvement is certain and
The rivalry of the tournament con
tests among the club members also
gives incentive to more careful play
ing, with the logical result of better
scores and a deeper enjoyment of the
sport. This is not so true of open
tournaments, where the competition is
keener and where one is usually paired
with a stranger who is intent solely
on returning winner and has no per
sonal interest in his opponent's score
except to excel it as much as possible.
Under such playing conditions the
novice obviously will get mighty few
helpful suggestions toward improving
his own game. But in matches with
brother club members the rivalry is
not so Intense and consequently the
spirit of sympathy and helpfulness is
more evident.
Right here the maverick golfer is
likely to advance the argument that ho
plays golf only for the exercise and
cares nothing about his score. He may
be one of those so-called optimists who
tries to argue that the real dub gets as
much pleasure from golf as the expert.
False philosophy, and every golfer
who has acquired even a small degree
of skill knows it is false. Every golfer
cares about his score and the more
proficient he becomes the more he
cares and the more pleasure he derives
from a good score. The veriest dub
thrills with pleasure when he shoots a
long straight drive; his face beams
with delight when his approach shot
drops dead to the pin; his cup of hap
piness bubbles over when a long putt
goes down for par.
