The fast swing spoils the easy (lowing balance of the stroke and throws the plsyer entirely out of hls bitting position. It often happen* that one will be awlnglng tod fast for round after round without being once conscious of thd fact, and he may, as I did this spring, work dssperAely trying to make correction everywhere else without suspecting the real trouble. This la one of the very few faults which a man cannot readily dis ­ cover for himself. i A Slogan To Remember For this repaon \alow back\ la always a good slogan to bear In mind. It was the thing that I tried to keep before me as I played every ahot at Winged Foot yet even then more of my shots were spoiled by hurried swinging than from any other cause. I think my tendency In that direction was more pro ­ nounced this year than ever before. I thought numbers of times of my frland at East Lake who has the word “ slow\ stamped In large let ­ ters across tho top of hls Ray Wills putter. He give* himself no chance to forget It and he is an excsllent putter ns a result Findlay Douglas w.-rr.cd me two years ago tbdt ns I grew older I would dlscbver a tendency to quick ­ en my swing and that I should have to watch.

It Is all out-and-out farce — the kind of-a plot that MacLean Is most at home In- He doesn't miss a chance to put over hls Inimitable pantomime. Marie Prevosl and Johnny Arthur are the mainstays of the support, and Miss Lee. Duf ­ fy and Mins Farley, all veterans of the art of farce comedy, also pro ­ vide acting of great merit. A pleasing feature of the plot la that divorce Is merely a means for comedy and Is never taken serious- A Uaallc CM, —1.IM gr Douglas Me Made Easy\ • motion, which permits every por ­ tion of th* body, perfectly relaxed, to participate In the movement. To that end, the grip must be not too tight, the stance must be easy and comfortable, the position of the body must be mobile. In this connection it should be pointed out that tha beginning moat apt to produce these desired condi ­ tions la s full leisurely waggle. By watching the preliminary waggle* of any player I can almost always anticipate the speed of hls swing. Apparently that part of hls swing, and it Is a part.
