I beliovo the average beginner will admll that the players who have played tor two or three seasons and whose handicaps have been reduced from the limit, say to the middle class, and who have still to v.-in their first prize, are entitled to the preference, it any there slionid be, over themselves. Their turn will come along all right. YANKS ARE STRONG. If the American league does not disband the Yankees may be expected to win a greater percentage of their games from now on. The reason is that Herbert Thormahlen, their sensational young pitcher will be back in the game again this week. Thormahlen, who won his last seven, gamee, .became ill ot 'plonMiin poisoning and then injured his knee. Ho has been out of the game for several weeks. PHONE 733 . FOR THE O.K.

I have just been reading an interesting article on handicapping, giving hints to handicapping committees as to what they should and slioulil not do in regard to meraliers' handicaps. With the most of the points mentioned I agree, althougli not with tiiem all. I was asked quite recently if I was in favor ot raising a player's handicap after it had been reduced. It a player's Jiandicap has been fairly adjusted on his form, I am not in favor of raising it simply because he is slightly off color and can not play to it, as I have always ninintainod that he will come back to his old form and possibly go better. I have often advised players who have spoken to me about not being able to play their handicap as they had been, in the habit ot doing, and who were having a lot of unnecessary worry over their lap^e of form-to lay off altogether for a week or a fortnight, and when they started they found in a ver^' short time ihey' were playing as v.-ell as ever, in fact were able to return bKt-ter' scores than they had done previously. Nearly all players have the same experience but 1 do not ami never did consider that a sufficient reason to increase any player's handicap. I have known players, however, who were treated rather severely, and were asked to do the next to impos-' sible to win a competition on the hanc\icaps alloted to them by the committee. Why they should have been placed on the marks they had was more than I could understand, as their average games did not warrant them being so heavily hand'.napoed. In cases of that kind I ^o and have favored them being raised to a mark where they at least had a sporting chance of pulling oft a win. With scratch players, however, I am against and always have been ot allowing them any handicap at all .�imply because they have gone off their game, even although they may have been playing under their fornj for the greater iiart of the seasoti, tor it ho is a player entitled to be on scratch it is up to him to bring himself back to the form of a scratch player. 1 remember an Instance happening in the first club I was connected with. It was my third year and I had been very successful in competitions and won my first club championship scratch, although my handicap was -1. There were thr,pe ot four scratch players In the club. Near the end of the season a very handaomp prize was donated to the club to be played for by stroke handicap. I;,had been made plus 2 In the handicap. One of the scratch players approached tho handicapping committee with a plausible tale of being off color and not having a chance. The coramtttee being sympathetic and' -without aerloualy considering what they were doing gave him a handicap of 2 strokes. I was told by one of the members before tho competition what had been done. I felt rather amused and said "I know the reaBon why it has been done, but I am afraid they will regret it, for you are not keeping me out, you are keeping yourselves out." The resulit..ot the competition proved'1 was; vlight, tho ex-Bcratch player wl^jiing .b:^ 1 stroke from a 15'handicap p'laye/'who play-> ed to form under most .trying conditions %nd deserved the- prize, a htwivy rain falling all tho afternoon. Tho handicapping committee felt a little sore over It but thoy had themselves to blame. With my plus 2 handicap 1 finished two strokes behind the winner. ; , Some young players strike their form very .quickly and come on so fast that it is -difficult tor tho handicap-pors just to know where to place them. They make no mistake in placing them in a mark where they will be safe; they can afford to wait for their innings amongst the prizes. It a player does not return scores and the committee cannot get any idea ot his form, ho sliouUl be barred from taking part in any competition, or made to play from scratch. Members should do' all in their power to assist the handicapping committee and givo them all the information about themselves as well as any others they know of. To say what system ot handicapping is the best is not so easy. The Calkin system is well recommended and approved by the Royal Canadian Golf Association and copies ot the system and handicap table can be supplied by the Canadian Golfer Magazine, who are willing to forward them to any match committee. 15c.
