HOW GOLF BEGAN AMONG THE MAYAS ARTFUL FATHERS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 14 November 1926

HOW GOLF BEGAN — .«. — AM6NC THE MAYAS ARTFUL FATHERS The always entertaining American writer, J:iin?s J. Montague, himself au ardent golfer, puls forward a whimsical theory concerning the origin of the game, ignoring both Scottish and Dutch claims. Hew; it is: — Over at St. Andrews they will tell you that it begun in the days when a Pict wns a Pict, and because he -wore a kilt and a tum even in those days gave rise to rue wora picturesque. 1 nere is some evidence, also, that the Dutch be gau it, as a form of shinny when the canals froze over, by rolling cheeses over the iee from one lock to another. But both, theories are wrong. I have been talking to an archaeologist, who ca« read the Maya inscriptions as if they were morie titles, and who lias spent the last eleven. years of his life deciphering the hieroglyphics outside the housps of the cliff dwellers, who seem to have been the original cave men. This is his story: — MOQUA AND THE GOUIID. Old man Moqui, sitting outside liis cav...

When 1 start the car for a run at night, the meter shows charge and the lights are good: then when I run for half an hour the meter gradually gets back to discharge and the /lights fade from bright . to very dim, and remain so for the rest of the journey. When I blow the horn, (electric) the lights almost go out, and the faster I run the better the lights. When going as slow as, say, 10 miles per hour, thfc lights are al most out (the horn is normal) and the car starti with the self starter at a II times very easily. They do not seem to be affected; only the lights give trouble.
