ONTHi SIDELINES When Bobby CrulcUshanlt. tho wee Bcot. wagered in a throe- way parlay 'on Bobby Jones to win the British ama- teur and open and United States ODBU champion- ships he made he eald "the best bet of my life." On the ten- pound note he risked he should _ __ collect more than J10.000. Crulckahank failed by a. stroke to qualify. the open champion- ship at Interlachei) for he .was sad- ly off his Etamo in the tests at Fenl- niore und Quaker Rldije. ttuently he was not at Minneapolis to see .tha last race of his parlay decided. It was Eueeested to the little Scotch professional that he would have found himself In a ticklish soot if he had been In the shoes of MacDonald Smith, rljrht on the heels of the ereat amateur and with a splendid chance to beat him out. "Not at all." replied Bobby "I would gladly have lost the bet to win the open championship. If I had had a chance to win no thought of that wacer wculd have entered my head. I would rather be the open KOlf champion of the United 410 000 win many times If the Atlanta friends of Bobby Jones who bet small sums at odds of 60 to one that Bob would win all the four malor eolf. titles this vear had elected instead to parlay their wafers, thev would have obtained 1 odds far ercater. At that the loneest uolf shot In the world becomes a possibility If not n probability.'. Last Mav when the waeers were made It seemed that 500 to one or or one would have been about the debt odds. o Win or lose In the amateur. Bob Jones prpbably will win manv more eolf titles before he removes his clubs from championship competi- tion. Although lie has been plavlne in malor tournaments for more than 14 years, ho IB today onlv 28 j years of aee. far too young for thoughts of retirement. j 1ms won onlv iU real titles and he has an expectancy In the ordinary run of event's of several more. Twelve Is an even number and a cood one but if ho wins the amateur it will be 13 and certainly he will not be satisfied to rlnc down the Rolf curtain en the much de- plsed and abused 13. Twcntv is an- other EOOd combination and pos- sibly he will run hla triumphs to an even ncorc before he oults with the championships. O O It IB understood that the next visit Robert Tyro Jones Jr. to New York will be in a business capacity.

Washington By Robert Barry Staff Correspondent Evening Republicans to Urge President Has Won All Real Tests. Cora- (Copyright Press Publishln pany, New York World, record of the first "Hoover congress" was on the books recently. The senate's overwhelming ap- proval of.the. linden naval treaty was held- .to h'ave closed a chapter. Speculation in 'Washington turned to what the republicans and. the democrats are to take to tho coun- try this year au live Issues in the congressional elections in every state, and the senatorial contests in about 35. Democratic leaders asserted Pres- jdent Hoover had accomplished nothing- in forward-looking legisla- tion without the votes of demo- crats on Capitol Hill. Republican leaders Hoov- er 'efficiency 'had scored a notable triumph, that the White House had ignored the pin-pricks of political criticism and had reserved its am- munition for the real tests on major Issues, wherein the president had scored Heavily. Democrats averred the president Imd failed to measure up to the po- litical liberalism which the democ- racy advocated and that it was only when he fell into line with the democratic party's principles that he was "able to accomplish anything worth while. HooVer Triumph Seen. Republican spokesman referred to a fact that. In spite of a hostile senate, the president had triumphed in every major conflict through senate retreats, the one Issue on which the democratic national coirl- mlttee hopes to rear a political campaign this.year being the tariff, which could not be a law today ex- cept for the voteb of democratic members of the senate and house. Democrats who opposed the Grundy Hoover Hawiey Tllson- Longworth Vandenberg Smoot Watson-Moses-Allen tariff bill pro- pose to proclaim; long and loudly :hat It will wreck American manu- facture, pick the pockets of the American consumer, impoverish do- mestic agriculture, Invite foreign reprisals against American exports, mcouragc American capital to ulld automobile and other facto- ies abroad, and some day bring to realization the economic scheme, veiled behind political Idealism, the veteran French statesman, Aris- tlde Brland. for a United States oi' Europe to give 'battle In the mar- ket places and on the seven seas'to :hc United States of North Amcr- It is not improbable that some of the democratic orators who will take the stump in the ensuing few months will not know what that is all about. -They will have the back- Ing and the information of the only, smart- democratic" national policy machine the national capital re- calls. What Republicans Clnlm. The republicans will seek to di- rect' attention to the enactment of the tariff bill for the protection of American Industry, the advance- ment of the American workman and the general economic restora- tion of the whole country. Better business by January. 1831; and greater prosperity by 1932 will be the Hoovcrites' slogan. Here and there will be a harking buck to the old "Coolidge economy" slogan, with references to President Hoover's recent plea for curtailment of the federal budtjet. The late congress appropriated or authorized federal funds which will aggregate very close to, If not actually above, The republican orators will con- tend that the house of representa- tives stood with President Hoover as a bulwark of competency and efficiency and integrity and vision against a little band of obstruction- ists and "hot air artists' In the sen- ate, a group of political Purlnhs, n motley crew of political nonde- scripts, a roving band of the 'Sons of the Wild a surrepti- tious crew of personal nnd political ingrates (and with, a not at all above taking money from Mos- cow to tear down the stars and stripes of the greatest republic on the face of the globe, a "national peril" Ham Fish and a house com- mittee now are investigating sol- emnly in New York. Change In Next Congress. It will be seen, therefore, that with the conclusion of the senate's special session, In which the presi- dent scored a decisive victory for national advancement toward the goal on naval disarmament, the final curtain on the 'Hoover con- gress" leaves Washington torn wide open In its discussion of the merits of it. By the time this congress shall have been reconvened a new one will have been elected. In the new congress the democrats hope to have a majority in the houso and an assured democratic-progressive republican domination of the sen- ate'. The smashing of the "gag rule" of the Longworth-Tllson-Snell tri- umvirate -In tho house would make a lot of difference In Washington. An increase of democratic strength In the se'nate would quifit the alarms and qualms of those liberals who blanch before the prospect of a Henry Allen of Kansas, an Ar- thur Vanderberg of Michigan or a Stewler of Oregon taking over of senate leadership in the name of Hodver.
