MUDDLED ORATORY As governor of New York, AI Smith once addressed the inmates of Sing Sing prison. Forgetting the nature of his audience, he began in his usual fashion: "Fellow Citi- zens--." A gust of giggles ran through the hail The governor blushed, cleared his throat and tried again: "Fellow Convicts---." This time the laughter w s frankly loud. "Oh." he stammered, "I mean I'm glad to see so many of you herei" Back Talk Mac--Walk faster so we san pass that woman in front of us. Kay---What for?

Picture Gallery Dresden's world-renowned picture gallery, the Zwlnger, was originally the vestibule of a royal palace built to rival Versailles. It housed Raphael's "Madonna of San Sisto," and masterpiece by Holbein, Titian. Rubens and Van Dyck. The Ma- donna, purchased in 1753 by Dres- den' art-loving king, Augustus III, was hung in the throne room. Tho story goes that the king shoved his throne aside with his own hands in order to place the picture in the mo t advantageous position.

Sparks was glad he wasn't married. the weight lift from his face, and he sucked in a little air with a lot of salt water. "I'll never use another pinch of salt in my ]lie," he said He pictured the chart of the Stra/ts perfectly, with all the yellow patches, the rings and dots, the light and shoals, and the beautiful land. The third had put his finger on their position at six bells. Off Sand Key. Maybe only five or six miles. "Pew- er factor is the cosine of the angle of lag." He noticed a rhythm in the gi- gantic boisterousness of the hurri- cane. First he seemed to gurgle and glug through the top of a mountain, then slid down its flanks at express train speed, and then he gurgled and giugged through the valley. Next he rose majestically, like a god, to the top of the next monster. It was on that toboggan downward that he learned to breathe. Sparks was glad he wasn't mar- ried. Twenty-fou~ was a little young anyway. He wished, though, that he could kiss just one pretty girl a stunning young one with hair llke the yellow on the charts and blue eyes like the Gulf of Mexico in the sunshine. Just once. A nice glrl who laughed with those blue eyes, and giggled along with it. Dad probably would pay off the forty dollars he owed the /nterna- tional Correspondence Schools and Mother would get all the books to- gether and put them on the white painted shelves in his room. The rhythm of the. hurricane sea went on endlessly, lifting him, drub- bing him. setting him down with that speed above speed that made all his insides seem to tie themselves in dizzy knots, and bustling him violently through the trough again. His breathing was like a reflex, in- voluntary at the right moments, but he caught the last of the gasp in sol- id salt water, Every tenth breath he erupted the water. He could not distinguish between sea and air; it was like the crescendo climax of an orchestra, with the drummer ham- mering out the thunder tirelessly. forever and ever "Power factor is the costine of the angle of lag." Sparks noticed that the ink of the emulsi~ed sky and se was Just a shade lighter than the Stygian black- heSS of ten breaths before, and then he lost consciousness. He opened his eyes to see an old man, with long stra~giing mustaches and a pair of down-on-the-nose spee. tacles bending over hlm. "Out for a little swim?" he asked. Sparks could only grin; he got to his feet on the shelving beach, his legs wob- bling under him. The old man led him to the light. house and up into the kitchen. In five minutes Sparks was eating three eggs and six slices of bacon, stop. ping momentarily for sips of coffee. The smell of the bacon w s o ex- cruciatingly good it hurt him--and he salted the eggs mlghtlly with firm shakes of the salt cel/ar. ball, or track and field? "Strangely enough the two most famous cups -- the Davis cup for tennis ~nd the Walker cup for golf came from two famous St. Loui~ sportsmen- Dwight Davis and George Herbert Walker. Dwight Davis and Bert Walker, both from inland St. Louis, were main factors in putting tennis and golf on the international sporting map. "There may have been two finer sportsmen, but I can't recall their names. Their international appeaI reached to more than millions -- it moved close to the billion mark." 15,000 Tennis Courts Our tennis expert then began to get eloquent. "As you may know," he said. "there are about 5,000 golf courses in the country. But don't forget there are 14,800 municipal ten. nls courts in 983 towns and cities of the U. S. There are 2,300 municipal courts located in as few as 10 cries, and New York isn't one of them. there are 706 tennis clubs, mem- bers of U.S,L.T.A and 777 others not members. And this doesn't in- clude the enormous number of ten- his courts at private homes. "Golf claims around 3.000,000 players in the U. S. We happen to know that tennis can cla/m around 5,000,000 players---po sibly more. After all, golf requires from 100 to 130 acres for a course. Terrain requires far less." main Imint is timt tonni~ and golf belong largely to comDeU- tots, not to spectators. And that's the way ft should be. We have had~ entirely to many spectators in th/s country and fax too few actual play- ers or eompefltors. This goes espe- cially for football, baseball and boxo /rig. These are largely spectator g~meL But these conditions may also ehange later on. Millions of spectators only mean box office re- ce/pis. They mea~ nothing in the way ot physical condition. Now back to tennis. Our expert continues---'~rennis is the only port played in countries all over the world under the same rule and regulation . Tennis is an internation- al matter, not a local affair. We figure there are something like 40 000,000 tennis players in the world, men and women. No other sport can even approach this mark. Be- fore the war we had something like 800,000 tennis rackets turned out each year. This will be doubled after the war. Tennis will be one of our greatest games. It takes up far less space and gives far more action than golf." To forestall any wild squawks from bowlers, softball players and basketball players, we'd like to step aside on this part of the argu- ment. The bowlers and the basket ball players claim around 20,000.000. The softball players over 30,000,- 000, We'll let them fight this out. But people don't read so much about their stars or their teams. The four major reading sports in the United States are baseball, football, boxing and racing--with golf next. The Best Golf Swinl Craig Wood reopened a hot argu- ment a few ~ays back: "The biggest improvement in golf, one of the ressons the leaders give you those record 8cores is this--they use the squared-face on the back- swing and keep the squared-face working through tho downswing. '~'his means less pivot, less body turn. It means more hand controL You should take the club head away squarely frmn the ball and keep it in this position so you can bring it back squarely to the balL" #
