CURS AGAIN SECOND GAME OF FIVE GAME SERIES TOMORROW NIGHT Presenting a slightly rejuvenat ed lineup, the Cubs will tackle the Lopez Funeral Home ten in the second game of a five-game series to be played tomorrow night at Bayview Park. One of the most interesting games ever played in this city re sulted from their wlast clash and the Funeral Home won by only a single run, after Sterling of the Cubs had completely outpitch ed Lunn of the Undertakers. Although the Cubs are noted for their late rallies, the Funeral Home pulled the trick on them in the last game and walked away with the contest. Manager Aguilar expects to pitch Ward tomorrow night while the Funeral Home has kept their battery a secret. Another hard-fought game is looked forward to by fans. rSPORT-ri SLANTS By ALAN GOULD [=3 (Hr Associated Press) Few illusions about the “box fight business,’’ little worry about the “chiaelers” in the racket and no false notions about the. pos sible return of the miliioh dollar heavyweight days bOset the new executive head of- ftfewi' l York’* Madison Squape .Garden, . • Colonel JoKri ! R&ed Kilpalrifck, | All-America end atj Yale vyhen the gridiron spotlight Was ' brightly on the 'Elfc all-around athlete, soldier and -bujiiriOSs tnan, steps ‘into the spot Once dominated by Tex Rickard with thefiatic side of the business pretty well batter ed but. not by any means hopeless. *?t< is by observation that the lafet fighter a champion’s manager wants to send his man against is the logical or popular contender,’’ said Colonel Kilpatrick. “This is, of course, one of the strange fea tures of boxing. We may not be able to cure it but the less Becrecy and less bargaining we do under cover, the more likely we are to make the matches that the public wants to see. “My idea would be to say, frankly, that so-and-so makes the most desirable match, then make it clear to everyone exactly what obstacles, if any, arise to prevent making the fight on a reasonable basis. Of course 1 know there are all sorts of subterfuges, that the managers of fighters find ways and means to get around the rules and regulations. But by more [ direct dealing, the promoter at least can make his own position clear and let the public’s attitude . take care of the fighter.'* Boxing At Fault There probably is no doubt that the box-fight business has in many respects greased its own skids. Champions have been moved around like the pieces on a check erboard until the point has been reached during the past few years when the general public knew few 1 of the professional titleholders by name, without first being prompt ed, and still is not in the least con cerned about it In fact titles have been so cheapened by state and national differences, causing conflicting claims by three or four boxers for the same championship, that they no longer mean much. A title match is in itself no long er the gate attraction it once was proof of which was furnished by the fact that the Schmchng-Baer heavy-weight match this summer with nothing but personal rivalry at stake, outrfrew by 340,000 the t'arnera-Shaikey championship af fair. In short. Colonel Kilpatrick takes over an industry at a time when a world’s championship match can draw barely one-fif teenth or less* than seven percent of the “gate" for the peak pro motion achievement of Ter Rk kard’a career—the second Demp sey-Tunney fight in Ctksg . i Gordon Fetero Not At s(k* The future of the Garden is not, of course. based on what happens to boxing or Colonel Kilpatrick’* 1 DION RULES ON BALL FLAYER IN LOCAL UNE-UP DECIDES PIRATES WILL NOT BE ABLE TO KEEP ACEVE DO; CLUB HANDS IN WITH DRAWAL FROM LEAGUE President Dion, at a meeting held last night, decided that the Pirates wouldn’t be able to keep Armando Acevedo, and that he would have to play with the Tro jans. Whereupon the Pirates handed in their withdrawal from the league. But fans will still see their Sun day doubleheader. Anew team, called the Young Stars, have been organized and will play the first game against the Trojans at 1:30 and the Sluggers will take on the Trojans in the second game. The league will continue as usual with the Young Stars taking the place of the Pirates, but anew schedule will have to be drawn up. The Young Stars may secure the services of any of the Pirate play ers, but said players may not go with any other team in the league. Asa roster, the Young Stars have presented the following play ers for a starter: L. Martinez, C. Castillo, G. Garcia, C. Garcia, L. Garcia, B. Bazo, B. Garcia, L. Gonzalez, A. Rendueles, A. Her nandez, M. Acevedo, M. Sanchez and H. Molina. TURNER JUNIORS WIN OWE MATCH AVENGED FORMER DEFEAT IN ! CONGEST MTH Rfct WEST TEAM Whining a closematch with the Key West City team, the Turner Juniors net'team avenged a for mer defeat by taking the matches by nine points to six. The Miami team won by the margin of a doubles match, after Key West had won three out of five matches in the singles depart ment. Two doubles and a single match were cancelled because of the | heavy rain which inundated the East Coast last weekend. Following are the results: Rog er Delano took Peter Varela in hand 6-1, 6-1. Seymour Feur broke through the cuts of A. Gomez and took, a 6-1, 6-2 win. Jack Sinclair then turned in the first win for the locals by trim ming Harold Kramer, 6-2, 6-4. Robert Pinder then got the num ber of Leo Koehler 7-5, 6-3. Ig nacio Carbonell came through for the third straight Key West win by and, owning Jack Roy 6-4. 4-6. 6-2 in the only match to go more than three sets. It was hard fought throughout. In the doubles, Albury and De lano of Miami, defeated Varela and Sinclair to the tune of 3-6, 6-2.6-S in another close match. The games were played on the Granada courts, Coral Gables and took place on Monday and Tues day.

MAYOR MALONE PERFORMS GREAT FEAT ON LINKS STRIKES GOLF BALL GOOD AND SQUARE AND CON NECTS WITH BIRD WHICH TOPPLES TO GROUND Killing two birds with one stone cannot be done, it is stated. Neither can a golf player drive from the tee and kill a bird with the ball he drove. Bqt this latter thing, that cannot be done, was done yesterday on the Key West course. Many “believe it or not” items have been written that tax the mind to believe. Some of them ap pear outside the bounds of possi bility. and seem hard to believe even when proven. However, be that as it may, Mayor William H. Malone, driving yesterday afternoon at the eighth hole, from which he never before made a successful drive, struck the ball fairly and squarely. It started on its flight, and when about 190 feet from the tee a bird known as a hell diver, crossed the line of flight of the ball and was struck in mid-air. The ball stopped. The bird stopped and both fell to the ground. Mr. Malone picked up the bird and took it to the caddy house, where it is being kept as an evidence of the remarkable inci dent. RUSSIANS PLAN STRATOSPHERIC ATTEMPT SOON SPECIALLY BUILT BALLOON DESIGNED FOR ASCENT OF FROM SIX TO THIRTEEN MILES (By, Annoftatfil Pre) LENINGfeAD, Aug. 24.—Soviet aviation’s first venture into the stratosphere •is scheduled to be made within the next few weeks in a specially constructed ballbori designed, sor aii aftent bf from six to 13 miles. Three—possibly four—r-of the leadihg aerologfsts' in tend to set out on a voyage into the upper reaches of tM at&oSi phere before the suutmer ends oil what is contemplated as the first of a series of such flights for scientific observation. To Study Cosmic Rays Their primary purpose is to study the cosmic rays, electro magnetic phenomena and the physiological influence of great heights on human beings. But they also hope to better the record of Prof. Auguste Piccard, who on his second ascension reached a height' of more than 53,000 feet. The first test flight of the bal loon, constructed in the Air In stitute’s factories here along the general lines of Piccard’s craft, was pronounced satisfactory by the constructor, M. Vasenko and B. Fedoseinko, the chief pilot, al though it was allowed to climb only 3,100 meters during its al most 14 hours in the air. It was brought down safely some 30 miles from Leningrad, its starting point. Molchanov Likely Commander Both Vansenko and Fedoseienko probably will make the first flight. Prof. D. Molchanov, director of the institute and organizer of the ascension, likely will be in com mand. Whether the flight will be started from Leningrad or from Moscow will depend on weather conditions. The balloon, designed by En gineer I. Chertovsky, was more; than a year in construction and only soviet materials and equip-] ment were used. The envelop** is made of a special rubberized fabric to which a paint compound Has been applied to make it im pervious to the sun’s heat. It has a capacity of 20,000 cubic meters of hydrogen gas. Basket Typo Suspeasiea The cabin is constructed of non- \ magnetic, rustless steel and can accomodate four men for a mini mum of 12 hours. It u slung in what resembles a basket, the bot tom of which is fitted with a shock-absorbing device to soften the impact of landing. Portholes fitted with non-sweating and non freezing glass—four around the side*, one in the top and one in the floor—provide the means of ob servation and photography. The crew will receive neee—ary air from a liquid oxygen apparatus within the sealed cabin, which al so will have a pow:ful -Lort *a* radio tnusseaixsioa and receiving **♦ _ THE KEY WES?
