DISGUISED. .AS WOMAN, MAN PLAYS POOR GOLF Eastern Golf Prqf-sssionai, Garbed in Feminine Attire, Fails .to Qualify iii-Women's Na- tional Championship Probably the most astounding golf story" of the year comes from the fertile gossip- surrounding the preliminaries to the' womanX golf championship, recently .played at Gleu Cove, L.I.

The'story is going the rounds of the women golfers, but 'those who know, or declare they know, re- fuse to divulge names. It is stated that the' man employed by a woman golfer to play in. her stead, and that, garbed in 'woman's 'clstb.es, he made the attempt, but eltker lost his nerve or was so hampered by petticoats (or what- ever hampers. women since they discarded petticoats) that he fail- ed to qualify.
