NEW YORK, June 3 The
US Golf association, which drew
lot of criticism for its hasty
cancellation of the open and
amateur championships, seems
to be making a great come-back
with the Hale America open

qualifying rounds this weekend
will take in virtually an uie top-
ranking pros and amateurs avail
able and the ones who don't
have to qualify will play exhibl

important names we can think of
that will be missing are bam
Sncad, Porky Oliver, Bud Ward,
WUlie Turncsa, Charlie Yates
and Johnny Fisher, who will be
too busy with their army and
navy duties . . . Corp. Jim Tur

right now, reports his putting

tournament because he didn't
have much chance to practice
anything else.

The Pittsburgh. Pirates, who started the season in splendor,
have become more futile and pathetic than even the Philadelphia
Phils, who haven't been out of the National league cellar since

Dorris Boss Sees Split or Double Vic

DORRIS "Our club will either split the series or will win
both games, Allen (Red) Tolbert, manager of the Dorris Lum

Dorris, tyirvg the 'Jacks and
Pelicans for first place in the
league. Manager Tolbert is Jubi
lant and looks forward to this
weekend s contests as highlights
of the season.
Two new players have been
added to the Lumberjacks'
growing list of the cream of a
defunct Northern California
league with which the Dorris
club was formerly associated.
Monk Gasparl, outfielder from
Mount Shasta, saw action the
first time this season in the
Grants Pass contests and gar
nered two hits and as many
runs. He swings like a wind
mill in a gale and threatens to
swat the ball halfway from
Tolbert park to Macdool.
Another addition is Connie
Thompson, Kent, Wash., hurler.
The lanky lad was signed to
pitch for Mt. Shasta until the
lcague was disbanded recently.
He wrote to Tolbert, who
agreed to give him a chance on
the mound. Thompson arrived
here Monday night and worked
out with the locals. He's em
ployed at a local lumber mill,
and reports indicate he may
prove a highly valuable man in
the Lumberjack club.
