Elaborate Preparations Being
Made For Annual A. B,G, Event,
RECORD EHTRY EXPECTED,
Over Four Hundrod and Fifty Clubs
May Turn Out In Tourney to Be'Hld
In St. Louis Contests to Start 'Jan.
21 and Continuo Until Feb. 6, 1811.
St Louis Is In the thick of prepara
tions for the coming national tourna
ment of the American bowling con
gress, scheduled at the Coliseum from
Jan. 21 to Feb. 0, 1011, and the Mound
City promoters are talking up an ex
pected entry list of some 450 clubs,
fifty more than turned out for Detroit
last spring. The greatest reason for
nn expected gain In the number of en
tries is put down to the early date of
the opening, which Is set for January,
nearly two months earlier tium the
usual opening games have been rolled
In the last few years.
Chicago held the first meeting of the
congress Iwick In 1001, and the games
were all rolled within two weeks of
New Year's day. Since then the date
for starting the tournament has stead
ily grown later until nt Louisville n
fashion for beginning on St Patrick'
day was set, and it has been adhered
to pretty much ever since until St.
Louis made a big protest nt Detroit
and carried its point by getting thd
dntes in January.

Good Conditions Will Rule,
Against the poor conditions of that
year the 1011 meet Is guaranteed con
Unuous alleys of the same speed as
those used in other cities. The sched'
ulc will le handled by Secretary Abe
Langtry und his trained corps of as
slstants, nnd the thermometer is fair
ly safe from taking any unexpected
boo6t Into the nineties. Tho Coliseum
building is away ahead of any building
yet offered the congress for the alleys,
besides being located lu tho virtual
heart of the city, close to all lines ot
Will Bowl Seventeen Days.
Tho tournament will last for seven
teen duys, und play will start at 9
o'clock In the morning and will run
until 12 o'clock at night. It will take n
forco of 200 people to handle the tour
nament. Every lniwler who makes the
trip to the Missouri city will be shown
the time of his or her life, and many a
great treat Is lu ntore for the visitors.
