THE PORTSMOUTH TIMES
Setting Of Date To Allow War Workers To Compete Is Biggest Problem
By FRITZ HOWELL Associated Free* Sports Writer COLUMBUS, June 4—Ohio’s I 14th annual public links golf j
championship is just a bit up In
There are two rertointie*—it will be held at tha Heatherdown* course in Toledo and all prises will be in war bonds or stomps— but from there on everything is a tossup.
Ray Pennell, executive secretary of the Ohio Public Link* Golf atsociation, said problem* still to be ironed out are the dates, the length of the tournament and whether or not the feminine feature of the annual classic would be staged as usual.
Time Is Big Worry To give the "pay-aa-you-play” boys and girls a chance to get away from their jobs, without taking too much time off fir golfing, the tournament has alway* been held on a Saturday and Sunday, with tha men traveling a 72-hole route and the women 36.
Some time ago Pennell suggested the dates of Aug. 8 and 9 for this year, but the Toledo district association, in making up its 1942 program, found those dates unsuitable. The association announced the meet would be held June 18 and 19, but since those dates fall on Thursday and Friday, the association probably meant July 18 and 19—a Saturday and Sunday.
Anyway, the date hasn’t been settled, but probably rest* between the July 18-19 or the Aug. 8-9 weekends. Now a new problem crops up. Toledo officials, declaring many of their Publink-aters are involved in defense factory work, with most of them on a six-day schedule, said they thought the tourney should be limited to a single day with 36 holea of medal play.
Women’s Play Threatened Pennell said he was willing to go along with that idea, since probably the same defense work situation prevailed all over the itate. That change, however, jeopardizes the fourth annua! women’* tournament, Pe n n e 11 said in expressing doubt that the Heatherdowns course would care to tie up both its private and public layouts for an entire Sunday.
Original plans called for the women to play 18 holes Saturday morning, and 18 Sunday afternoon, over the Heatherdowns private course, while the men would play 36 each day over the public layout. ’ 'he twin tournament could not be crowded on a single course, Pennell said, if played in a single day.
"Perhap* we could play the men 36 holes over the public course, and the women 18 over the private course Sunday afternoon,” Pennell said, “thus cutting the tournament in half.” Pennell is contacting members of the executive board of the association and hopes to have the details ironed out in a few days.
“There’ll be a tournament,” he declared, “and I don’t expect the entry list to be cut much. Most of our boys and girls Heam up’ in automobiles to get there anyway, so tire and gasoline rationing wouldn’t hurt us much.”
Dick Rhyan of Columbus is the defending men's champion, while Mrs. P. J. Linster of Mansfield

CHISOX SIGN WADE
NEW QORK, June 4—The Chicago White Sox have signed Southpaw Jake Wade, former
major leaguer, to bolster their pitching staff. A native of Morehead City, N. C., Wade was given his unconditional release by Indianapolis of the American association last year.
GIANTS SIGN YOUNGSTER CHICAGO, June 4—The New York Giants have announced they have signed Tony Di Bar-tolo, an 18-year-old catcher just out of Jesuit High school in New Orleans. He will be carried as the Giants’ 25th player and fourth catcher.
