29—Practice That Fay*.
It is impossible to overemphasize
the value of intelligent practice If the
jl, folfer has any ambition to Increase
^ hie or her skill.
We might as well start with the pos-
itive statement that one’s skill, after a
certain point, cannot be increased by
playing the game. The fundamental
reason for this is that there Is no
chance of profiting by one’s error*.
There is a failure, for instance, with
from a banker. Per-
K>t and the same fall-
two or three other times In
tibe round. Intelligent practice of the
after a lesson from a
Instructor, would let the
player make the shot with a great deal
of confidence when it came up in a
game. Failure to learn and practice
the shot has the contrary effect Not
only Is there a feeling In advance that
the shot will be a flivver, but that
feeling will extend to any use of the
club and the player's game is made
worse by abortive attempts at using
some other club when the niblick
should be used.
Why not follow the same procedure
as In the learning of anything else?
Is anyone so foolish as to think It
possible to become a musical artist
without Instruction or practice? Can
one learn to become a ball player or
tennis player or football player or
sprinter or lawyer or college professor
or minister or aviator, or any tiling
under the sun requiring skill, without
instruction and intelligent practice?
Yet it is perfectly safe to say that
more than half of the 10,000,000 golf-
ers of the world never took a lesson
nor ever spent an hour In intelligent

at a time, and test them out thorough-,

is necessary, but will have very little

Three more days which hold the
oportunity of securing the win-
ning votes. Promptly at nine
o’clock Saturday night, Decem-
ber 5th, the last and final grand
club offer of the entire campaign
will be concluded.
Until that hour $20 worth of
subscriptions turned in or mailed
will entitle the contestant to
Whom they are credited to an ex-
tra bonus of 80,000 votes—over
and above those to which will be
entitled in accordance with the
regular schedufe. Never again
throughout the remainder of this
| campaign will another club offer
! be made, and next week only the
! final vote schedule will be effect-
Now is the crucial period the
time to corral every ounce of en-
ergy and bring every possible
resource into play. Each intent
upon outdoing the other, con-
testants are now working in a
frenzy of excitement and enthu-
siasm, and the spirit of friendly
rivalry becomes more intense as
the race nears the end. Realizing
that only from now until Satur-
day remains in which to obtain
extra bonus votes through the
building of clubs, contestants are
literally turning things topsy-
turvey in their efforts to accom-
plish everytly’ng possible before
the expiration of this offer.
The ensuing three days are ex-
pected to be the biggest of all in
point of subscriptions turned in,
with Saturday the banner day of
the three. There will be no club
offer next week, and the ballot
box will be locked and sealed*- It
will not again be opened until it
is placed in the hands of the offi-
cial judges who will make the fi-
nal count and who will announce
the winpers one week from Sat-
December 5, at 9 p. m.
December 12, at 9 p. m.
These two dates which are in-
delibly engraved upon the minds
and memory of every contestant.
Reference to the calendar will
show neither are far distant, in
fact the last club offer will be
over almost before it is realized.
With the end of these liberal ex-
tra vote offers so rapidly ap-
proaching many contestants ate
building reserves of votes in or-
der to fortify themselves against
being overtaken by some of their
competitors. This final club of-
fer affords a splendid opportuni-
ty to strengthen one’s position in
the race. Subscriptions now
count for thousands and thous-
ands of votes, and it is only dur-
ing the next three days that a re-
serve can be built up which will
withstand the terrific onslaught
of th% final rush.
It is quite evident that the con-
testants now n*ean business in ev-
ery sense of the term. The de-
termination to win one of the cov-
eted prizes is plainly written on
the faces of those who visit the
office of the campaign manager.

Application of T.P.&G.for Line.
Fort Worth.—-Both Lon A.
Smith and C. Y Terrell, members
of the Texas Railroad Commission,
expressed their approval of the
proposed construction of the Tex-
as Panhandle and Gulf Railroad
from, Fort Worth toTucumcari, N
M., during a conference with the
proponents of the line in Fort
“I am in favor of the T. P. &
G. being built,” Commissioner
Smith declared. “In the past,
railroads were built largely on
faith. Now they are built large-
ly for the service of the people,
and the people of west Texas
need and want this railroad.”
Commissioner Terrell brought
out to the that the T. P. & G.
when built, will tend, to bring the
products of, west Texas to Texas
cities instead of having them ta-
ken to the markets of Oklahoma
and Kansas; that the road will
tend to develop Texas cities,
namely, Fort Worth, Dallas and
other municipalities, which phase
! of the matter should be taken in-
I to consideration by Texas people,
! he stated.
| When questioned concerning
; his attitude toward new railroad
construction in general, Commis-
sioner Terrell asserted:
“Of course I’m for the build-
| ing of new railroad lines into the
Rio Grande Valley and on the
Plains The people in those sec-
tions need more railroad faeili-
j ties and « direet one-line haul by

“Always count me in on any-
thing and everything that will
help develop Texas or any part of
it,” the Comimissioner tleelared.

section 1, article 10, that any cor-
poration shall have the right to
build rail lines between any
points in Texas. I’m for the Coik
stitution of Texas.”
