The Sports Trail
By WHITNEY MARTIN | NEW YORK, May 14.—(j^)—It’s always easy to spend someoni else’s money, or tell him how t< ■pend it, so it is no trouble at al to urge the horse racing folks tc dig down in the sock and hire themselves a first-class czar. Racing is off to a fresh star after its four-month vacation. Thai It is due for prosperity surpassinj even its record season of last yeai is almost a foregone conclusion. The public as a whole has showr It wants racing, is hungry for it But it wants honest racing. II doesn’t want jockeys, or owners, or trainers who have been barrec for shady practices at one track operating at another. When a mar is suspended for life, it should be ier life. It is said there are 70-some ways a horse can lose in a race honest ly That is gamble enough with out being fearful that the horse ton’t being allowed to make its best effort. A ciar, a man of iron will and accepted integrity, would give the public confidence in the sport, and would make any would-be wrong doers think twice before attempt ing any shenanigans. If a man con nected with the game knew that ii he were caught cheating he was through for life, he wouldn’t try to cheat. The czar should have all the powers that were enjoyed by the late Baseball Commissioner, K. M. Landis. There was no appeal from a Landis’ final decision. ; When Landis banned a man he stayed banned, and any ball play* ’ ers with larcenous leanings, know ing this, let no shadow of suspi cion fall on them. Consequently, baseball has enjoyed the respect and confidence of all. The idea is that the race bettors want to know they are getting an honest run .for their dollar. They don’t want to put their tWo bucks on a nag and, by the nag’s per formance, find out that the train er just had him entered for the ride to condition him for future races. They want to know that when a horse goes to the post It means the horse is ready to run, and that no attempt will be made to keep it from running. A czar, in addition to keeping a haklike eye open for any crook edness, "would serve as a discipli narian for minor offenses, a job usually handled by the stewards. That is, where a jockey might be guilty of rough riding, although it was obvious he was doing it in the interests of winning a race. Such rule infractions are equivalent to fist fights or rows with umpires' on the baseball field, wherein the parties are fined and perhaps sus pended for a time. At any rate, it would seem to be a good time for racing to ease itself into the good graces of its critics by hiring an. upstanding man as sort of a glorified cop, judge and jury. Walker Leads Batting: Brooks Beat Bucs, 4-1 BROOKLYN, May 14—(IP)—Brooklyn swept to its ninth straight victory, the longest streak of the major league season, by downing Pittsburgh today, 4-1, on a neat seven-hit pitching performance by Rookie Righthander Leroy Pfund. — Pfund, a refugee from the St. Louis Cardinal chain gang, was -making his first starting appearance after two relief roles and was never in serious trouble after a* xnree-nu r-iraie mira irame mat petted only one run. Dixie Walker led the Brooks’ six blow attack on Preacher Roe with a triple, double and single, scor ing twice. Luis Olmo’s double scor ed Dixie in the fourth tc tie the game and Mickey Owen’s two bagger did the trick, in the sev enth. Bob Elliott’s error on Eddie Basinski’s hopper permitted Owen to also tally in the seventh. Three walks and an outfield fly by Bill Hart produced the last counter in the eighth.

Y., 6-5 Weintraub Singles In Tenth With Runner Aboard To Win NEW YORK, May 15—<£>)—Phil Weintraub’s single to center in the tenth inning today scored pinch runner Leon Treadway with the big run of a 6-5 New York Giant victory over Chicago today, in a game marked by four home runs. Nap Reyes poked two into the stands, his first in the second frame off Bob Chapman for a commanding early lead, and his second in the last of the ninth off Hy Vandenberg. Reyes also added two singles. A three-run clout by Catcher Dewey Williams had given Chicago the lead for the first time in the top of the ninth inning. Rookie Bill Emmerich, making his first appearance in a big league park, appeared on his way to a victorious debut going into the ninth with a 4-2 edge, but after he walked Peanuts Lowrey and let Don Johnson single, Mell Ott lift ed him for Bill Voiselle. Voiselle finally caught up with his sixth straight victory, tops in the majors, but he had to sweat to do it as Williams, the first man to face him» banged one into the upper right field stands for a 5-4 edge. Reyes’ second round tripper of the day tied it up in the home ninth. After Voiselle retired the Subs in order in the tenth, Ott started the winning rally with a single. Joe Medwick, starting his first game of the year in left field, sacrificed the Skipper to second and Weintraub followed with his decisive safety. Ray Prim, who relieved Van denberg in the ninth, was charged with the defeat. Alter Keyes nrst wanop in xne second, Chipman put down th£ Giants until the seventh when a combination of singles by Reyes and Johnny Rucker and a sacri fice netted one more. Chipman’s double following Paul Gillespie’s single gave the Bruins their first tally in the fifth and Stan Hack contributed a solo homer in the eighth.

The man behind the mask, Mar vel No. 2, will be on hand to meet Sonny Meyers, the St. Joseph, Mo., killer, in the opening bout. The Marvel has proven that he is as rough as they come in matches gone by, but he’ll really have to give out to beat the speedy Meyers. This match is scheduled for two out of three falls, an hour time limit. The main event was wellmamed: when announced as ‘‘The Battle of the Bullies”. Big Herb Free man of Brooklyn meets the wiley Jimmy Coffield in a two out of three fall match, 75 npnute time limit. Herbie outweighs ‘‘Gentleman Jim” 30 pounds, but of course Cof field doesn’t bother about dis playing an inferiority complex, and says that he has to ‘‘spot ’em something, and anyway Freeman is from where them Dodgers Hail.” ‘‘Shirtless” Murphy Cohen will again be on hand to referee, de spite the fact that he was popped on the snoot last week. -V Commissioners To Spend $350 On Diamond Repair At their regular weekly meeting yesterday, the New Hanover Board of County Commissioners agreed to the expenditure of approximate, ly $350 to get the second diamond at the American Legion stadium in shape for night play by the Shipyard Softball League. A committee from the shipyard last Monday, told the commission ers that ten softball teams had been formed, and that a place for playing night ball was being sought, as afternoon play was inconvenient to most of the workers. It was be lieved that by placing lights on three poles already erected, and with the erection of two more poles on which lights could be placed, the diamond next to the baseball field could be lighted suf ficiently. ‘Honest John’ Getchell Dies Of Heart Disease MINNEAPOLIS, May 14—(/PJ Some fans called him “Wong Down” and the Dave (Long Count) Barry of football but here in his hown town sports followers knew John S. Getchell as “Honest John.” Getchell, whose death today at the age of 44 was due to heart disease, was widely known as a Big Ten football and basketball official but it was the Carnegie Tech-Notre Dame game of 1938 which resulted in his being voted the doubtful honor of contributing sports’ outstanding oddity of the year. The game was in the last quar | ter, a scoreless tie. Carnegie had : the ball near midfield. Quarterback Paul Friedlander asked what down it was and Referee Getchell ; answered “third.” Friedlander ' called a running play. It failed to : make first down. Then it was discovered it actual ly had been fourth down. Notre Dame was given the ball and stor ed in three plays to Win, 7-0, and dash Carnegie's hopes of an un defeated season. Carnegie’s supporters set up a terrific howl. Bitter words were tossed around. Coach Bill Kern declared that with 11 minutes to play and the score tied, his quar •*) ter never would have called a fourth down running play. But Kern soon issued a forgive and-forget statement and invited Getchell to officiate at the post season Sugar Bowl game. Carnegie lost it to Texas Christian, but no one found fault with Getchell’s whistle work. Months later, Getchell addressed a luncheon club and was asked what he was thinking of when ask ed about the down. “Why practically nothing at all —I was just too busy patting my self on the back for a good game of officiating,” Getchell confessed. It was such candor that won him the name of “Honest John” here abouts. Getchell also called a disputed decision in 1936 which figured in the breaking of Minnesota’s string of 20 consecutive victories. He charged Gopher Captain Ed Wid seth with slugging and gave North western the ball a yard from the goal. Northwestern scored and won. Minnesota fans refused to be lieve Widseth, known for clean play, had fouled. Movies bore them out. But there was little cen sure of Getchell; the home folks knew he called them as he saw them. — -— - -■— ; k Fetchings Bar Wins First Race Crowds jam the stands at Sportsman’s Park in Chicago and Happy Hour Farm’s Fetching Bar (8) wins the first race over Private Howie (6).

Two doubles by Kurowski gave him undisputed possession of first place with eight. Nap Reyes of the Giants showed the way with three triples, and McCormick of the Reds led with five stolen bases.
