Smoke Rings
Can’t Keep ’Em Down
By SAM RAGAN
Pitchers usually have an up and down career. Some
go down even before they get started and then manage to
come back up. This happened to Bucky Walters. Others
flash through the heavens like a comet and in the same
manner flash into oblivion.
This latter is apparently what has happened to Dizzy
Dean and what most thought had happened to his brother,
Paul Dean, and Schoolboy Rowe. But these two are fool
ing the speculators. They are coming back.
SHOWING PROMISE ★
Paul, the lesser half of the Me
*N Paul combination of a few
years back, showed considerable
promise as a comebacker Tuesday
when he pitched the New York
Giants to a 3-1 victory over the
Cubs with a startling four-hit per
formance.
He didn’t have all of the old
speed he once possessed. But he
did have remarkable control and
a good change of pace. With those
tools he is almost sure to win
some ball games this year and
maybe the next.
His more sensational brother,
Dizzy, is down at Tulsa in the
Texas league, trying hard, desper
ately hard to get back into the
big tent. He is trying to develop
a new delivery and ease the pain
in that big right arm of his. But
the odds are against him. But like
Paul, Dizzy has a great heart and
perhaps that might pull him
through.
Another pitcher who broke into
the big time the same years the
Arkansas came into the Cardinals
camp—Lynwood (Schoolboy) Rowe
is making a comeback with the
Ticrprs thp samp rliih with whirh
he won 19 games in 1934. So far
this season he has won four and
lost none.
Those three boys might not have
been your favorite baseball player,
but you certainly have a bit of
respect and admiration for a guy
who does try to comeback.
Let There Be Light
Like the old, the young, the
male and the female, the city com
missioners have finally decided
that there’s something to softball
after all and consequently Robert
Strange playground will be equip
ped with lights.
The sponsors of the various
teams in the city have been ar
guing with the city fathers that
they would like to play softball
at night and have cited to the
board some fancy figures on at
tendance to prove that the people
of the city like the game and would
like to see it played.
The softball teams will now get
the lights they asked for. And now
they can bat an over-stuffed ball
around the field under the stars
to their hearts content. 4

Weston Dixon And Tommy
Bumbarger Advance Into
36-Hole Finals Today
GREENSBORO, June 12 —UPt—
The remaining favorites were clip
ped in this morning’s round and
into the 36 hole finals of the 14th
annual Carolinas Junior Golf tourn
ament tomorrow at Sedgefield

alded shotmakers—Weston Dixon,

Dixon threw a bombshell into

of Raleigh, by 3 and 2, and then
went on in the semi-finals to de

boro, 3 to 1.
Bumbarger came through with
a 2 and 1 quarter- finals victory
over Chip Clark, Levington, and
then took out another upsetter, Ed
Grosse, of Gastonia, and formerly
of Greensboro, in the afternoon by
6 and 5. Grosse had scored a sur
prise victory by one up in 19 holes

McManus, Greensboro, who had
become a favorite after his 2 and
1 victory in the opening round over
Carl Dezern, of Durham, last
year’s runner-up to Jimmy Rhea,
of Rock Hill, S. C.
Although relegated to the cham
pionship consolation, Dezern shot
the finest golf played today, re
cording a 69, one under par, in
the morning to defeat Bobby Wil
liams, of Charlotte, 3 and 2.
Williams came through with a
splendid 72, second lowest medal
card of the day. In the afternoon,
Dezern continued his brilliancy to

RALLY IN EIGHTH
NETS SIX TALLIES
Al Milnar Is Chased From
Mound As Sox Send 12 Men
To Bat In One Frame
BOSTON, June 12.—(S’)—By send
ing 12 men to bat for a six-run rally
in the eighth, the Red Sox came
from behind today to trump another
Cleveland pitching ace and protect
their first-place lead with a 9-5 vic
tory.
Yesterday the aroused Sockers
chased the great Bob Feller early,
huf n-pvp two runs behind Al
Milnar today until they blasted that
stylish southpaw from the mound
with none out in the eighth.
He was replaced by Mel Harder
with the score tied at 5-all and two
runners on.
Doc Cramer opened the rally with
a single, which was duplicated im
mediately by Lou Finney. After
Captain Jimmy Foxx scored both
with a double off the left-center
wall, Milnar surrendered by passing
Ted Williams.
Manager Joe Cronin was the first
man to face the Cleveland relief
pitcher and after he sacrificed,
Harder filled the bases by passing
Jim Tabor. Stan Spence, pinch-hit
ting for 0*ene Desautels, brought in
Foxx with a long fly and then the
Sockers countered three more runs
on singles by Jim Bagby and Bobby
TVTiVo Vavmiplr tnnL- nvpr.
and, after Cramer made his second
hit of the inning, Foxx pulled the
string by fanning with the bases
jammed.
The Indians, who outhit the victors
18-11, made all but one of their
bingles before starter Mickey Harris
was yanked with none down in the
sixth. Jim Bagby held them to one
hit during the remainder of the game
and wound up as the winning
pitcher.
The Sockers pulled into an early
2-1 lead when Tabor homered with
Williams aboard in the second inning
but the Indians gained a 5-3 lead
in the sixth by scoring three runs
on two singles, a Foxx error and an
infield out.

Jack Dempsey Boxes
Godoy For Two Rounds
CARMEL, N. Y. June 12—(iTI—
Jack Dempsey joined the Joe
Louis — Arturo Godoy ballyhoo
forces today by donning the gloves
and boxing two abbreviated rounds
with Godoy at his training camp
here.
The rounds were held to a min
ute each. The boys bounced around
fairly fast and the old Manasas
mauler was puffing after each. No
damage was done.
Dempsey said it was the first
time he had really boxed since he
went a round each with Max
Schmeling and Max Baer before
their bout in New York in 1933
which Demsey promoted.
Godoy fighting in a stand-up
position for a change, reddened
Dempsey’s face with a few short
jolts and once Jack caught the
Chilean with a back hand lick that -
sent Arturo reeling. 3
AAA AAA AAA H A A
Pirates Triumph Over Whiteviile, u-e
TIMELY HITTING
MARKS VICTORY
Skipper Bears Down In Pinch
es; Strikes Out 16 Men;
Each Club Gets 10 Hits
Timely hitting and tight pitching
in the pinches by Norwood Skipper
gave the Wilmington Pirates an 11.
6 triumph over the Whiteville base
ball club at Legion field last night.
Aside from the seventh inning
when the visitors got out of bounds
and sent five runs across the plate
nn three hits, a walk and a brace
of errors, Skipper had Whiteville
throttled.
He struck out 16 men during the
game and on two occasions he
whiffed three straight batters with
the bases loaded. The first time
came in the fifth frame, when a
walk and two safeties enabled
Whiteville to load the sacks. Skip
per went to work and retired the
next three men amid a round of
applause. He turned in the same
trick in the ninth, when the visit
ors pushed across their final
marker.
X. Brown, the Clarkton boy who
has seen service with Asheville and
Goldsboro, almost matched Skip
per's performance. He yielded the
same amount of hits—ten—but for
the first five innings he was almost
invincible.
The Buccaneers opened with one
run in the first, when S. McKeith
m trinled and was sacrificed hnme
by Moore. From then until the
sixth the game was a tight pitch
er's duel between Brown and Skip
per. In the sixth three straight er
rors and a triple by Carter gave the
locals three more runs.
The lead, however, was short
lived for the Whiteville lads came
pack in the seventh to go out front
ivith five markers. Singles by
Brown, and Gaylord and a two
pagger by Edwards, plus a pair cf
?rrors and a walk accounted for the
runs.
The Pirates came right back in
:heir half of the seventh to hit
safely five times, including a home
•un by Hargrove Davis with two
pn, and go out front with six runs,
rwo errors and a walk helped the
pause. The Bucs added a singleton
n the eighth on a single by Moore
md an error.
Moore and Carter with two hits
put of four tries paced the Bucs at.
ack.a Brown and Harrelson with
wo for four led the visitors at the
plate.

SENATORS DEFEAT
BROWNS, 3 TO 2

Winning Streak With
Fine Mound Work
WASHINGTON, June 12— <-T> —
Ken Chase today broke the St.

, off with a triple to left. Chase fan
ned, but George Case laid down a
beautiful bunt to squeeze Blood
worth home.
The Browns tallied one in the
second inning when Harlond Clift
doubled and scored on Myril Hoag’s
double. They got another in the
sixth when Clift walked, went to
second on an infield out and came
h o m e on Johnnie Berardino's
double.
