Reynolds Again Fit for Regular Toil : Records Safe Despite Hot Batting Race
GIF OUTFIELDER
Manush Out1 to Maul Tiger
Hurlers, Who Checked His
Hitting Streak.
BY JOHN B. KELLER.
AS the Nationals resumed
their tussling with the
Tigers this afternoon, Carl
Reynolds was expected to
be back at his post in right field
and ready to carry on in that
sector to the end of the campaign.
Kept out of Thursday's en
counter because of a slight indis
position, the rangy outfielder this
morning was reported fit for duty
once more and with the Nationals
not due to run into any double
headers for some time, Manager
Johnson sees no reason why
Reynolds should nof be in action
regularly.
The dizzy spell that forced Reynolds'
retirement during a game he had start
ed last week was a natural consequence
of the lack of solid food Carl had to
suffer whjle the jaw smashed by Bill
Dickejv Yankee catcher, was healing.
Reynolds was on a liquid diet more
than a month after Dickey dealt the
bone-fracturing blow and not until this
week was he able to eat heavy foods
regularly.
He's in fine fettle at last, according
to those in charge of the Nationals, ajid
more than eager to be in the line-up
daily.
HEINIE MANUSH was likely to have
fire in his eye and plenty of swing
in his arms in his turn at the
plate today. Since the Nationals came
back to their own lot two weeks ago
Heinle has been stopped only by Tiger
hurling. In eight times at bat against
Bucky Harris' pitchers, Heinie has not
cracked a bingle.
In the 11 engagements in Griffith
Stadium just before the Tiger series
began. Manush got 20 hits in 46 times
at bat. That was walloping at a .435
rate.
After failing to get hold of one of
Charley Ruffing's pitches for a hit on
August 13, Manush stepped cut to drive
the ball to safety in 10 games in suc
cession. But the Tiger tossers in the
first two games of the current series
etopped him cold.
PLLOWING this series with the
Tigers, the Nationals will have only
eight more games in Griffith Sta
dium. The Browns get here Monday to
open a three-game set, then play on the
lot here will be off until Sunday. Sep
tember 4, when the Athletics will show.
The next day—Labor day—the Red Sox
will be in for the last time this season.
They are slated for a double-header on
the holiday. Nothing more thereafter
until the A's come down on Sunday. |
September 25. to wind up the campaign.
Between Labor day and the finish of 1
the season the Nationals will do a lot of
touring. They'll play 13 games In the
Western sector, then move on to Boston |
for a quartet of tilts with the Red Sox
and follow with a pair of contests with
the A's in Philadelphia.
Which makes the game this after
noon the last Saturday show in Grif.
fith Stadium this year.

BRUINS AFFORDED
BREATHING SPELL
Run Lead to 6V2 Games by
Cleaning Up Dodgers.
Grove Hits Homer.
BY HERBERT W." BARKER,
Associated Press Sporte Writer.
OR the first time since Charley
Grimm took over the reins the
Chicago Cubs can afford to sit
back .and take a breathing spell.
Winners of seven successive games
and of 17 of the 22 they've played under
Grimm's leadership, the Cubs today
were six and a half games in front of
the National League field.
They trounced the pennant-hungry
Brooklyn Dodgers yesterday for the
third time in a row. 10-4, smashing
Hollis Thurston, Dazzy Vance and Jack
Quinn for eight hits and nine runs
In the third inning. Behind that lead
Lon Wameke coasted to his nineteenth
victory of the campaign. The sensa
tional rookie right-hander has lost only
five games, three of them to the
Dodgers.
THE Dodgers, their pennant hopes
temporarily dimmed, now must
turn their attention to holding on
to second place. While they were tak
ing their trouncing at Chicago, the
Pittsburgh Pirates, behind the seven
hit pitching of Leon Chagnon, blanked
the Phillies, 8-0, and moved to within
half a game of the Dodgers.
The only other National League game
of the day provided Dizzy Dean with a
chance to win his second game In three
days. He pitched the Cardinals to a
4-2 decision over the New York Giants,
allowing only five hits, of which twc
were home runs by Carl Hubbell and
Melvin Ott.
There was no change in the relative
standing of the American League lead
ers as the New York Yankees and Phila
delphia Athletics both won. Johnny Al
len outpitched Wes Ferrell as the Yan
kees beat Cleveland. 4-2. Gehrig's
twenty-ninth homer and Ruth's thirty
seventh helped the young right-hander
hang up his eighth successive victory
and his fourteenth against two defeats
this season.
HOME runs by Bob Grove, A1 Sim
mons and Jimmie Foxx, the let
ter's .forty-seventh of the cam
paign, helped the Athletics to whip the
St. Louis Browns, 5-4, although it was
Simmons' single in the ninth that drove
across the winning run. Grove struck
out 10 men in winning his twentieth
game of the year.
The Chicago White Sox collected 18
hits, including seven doubles and two
home runs, and still managed to lose a
decision to the Boston Red Sox, 11-8.
The Red Sox got 13 hits and, what is
mar» to the point, 14 passes from Gas
ton, dallivan. Chamberlain and Faber.

THE SPORTLIGHT
BY GRANTLAND RICE
SEPTEMBER is near at hand and
as usual It Is packed with more
action than any other month of
the sporting year.
It opens with the Walker Cup
matches in Brookline and the P. G. A.
championship at St. Paul.
A day or two later the tennis cham
pionship flares up, with Henri Cochet I
on the trail of Ellsworth Vines, as Kaye
Don and Gtr Wood hook up once more
in Detroit for the motor boat speed j
test.
Just about the time the tennis act ί
closes at Forest Hills, the amateur golf
championship breaks out at Balti
more—the date being September 12.
All this time Chicago. Brooklyn and
possibly Pittsburgh will be stepping
down the stretch for the sole purpose
af facing the Yankees in the next world
series. Also the polo ensemble will re
main under way and Max Schmeling
will return to the wars once more, with
Mickey Walker in the opposite camp.
A few days after this the women's golf
championship gets under way, with
Enid Wilson, British champion, invad
ing the scene again.
And not even all this will take the
edge away from another foot ball open
ing, which promises to be just as keen
as ever.
You will have the pick of eight or ten
sports, amateur and professional, which
should help while away any morbid
hours.
THE other side of the Atlantic will
send three of its leading amateur
champions into action before long.
They are Cochet, France's tennis
champion; De Forest, amateur golf
champion of Great Britain, and Enid
Wilson, women's golf champion of the
same domain.
Cochet and Enid Wilson will be dan
gerous threats, but John De Forest has
a harder path to take in the big golf
scramble where crowned heads mean
little.
All in all, the British Invasion is
one of the most extensive in years.
In addition to the Walker Cup party
and Miss Wilson for golf, Bunny Aus

tin and Fred Perry will be on hand
for the tennis gathering at Forest Hills
in a meeting which will include th3
first 10 ranking players of the world.
As Max Schmeling is still the heavy
weight champion of Europe, his ar
rival will add another name to the
somewhat extended list.
Ο LIN DUTRA, the big Californian
from the Brentwood course, is still
burning up the greens.
After his remarkable showing in the
East—including a 68-65 at Lido—he
picked up another title at Chicago this
week by finishing with three birdies
when he needed them to win.
Dutra will be a strong challenger for
the next P. G. A. championship. He
is hitting the ball close to perfection.
I played one round with him at Brent
wood, where he turned in a 66, which
might just as easily have been a 62.
He is not only long and straight off
the tee, but his iron play is deadly, and
he has one of the smoothest putting
touches in golf. His whole game looks
to be so sound you wonder how he
could ever take more than 70 strokes—
and for that matter no other golfer has
broken 70 as often as Dutra has this
year.
Dutra is a trifle over 6 feet in height,
weighing 200 pounds. His big brother
Morie is also a fine golfer but has
lagged a trifle behind Olin in the last
few months. One feature of Olin
Dutra's game is the fine control he has
of his tremendous physical power.
There is no sign of slugging or over
effort in any shot he plays. He can
get all the distance he needs without
having to slug at any time.
DUTRA is the pro at Howard Jones'
course in Los Angeles, which re
calls the fact that Southern Cali
fornia's star coach is also a first-class
golfer. His range is from 77 to 82, in
spite of the fact that foot ball never is
far away from Howard's mind.
This Fall he loses Shaver, Pinckert,
Musick, Mallory, Baker and one or two
other stars, but he still expects to put
just about as strong a team as last
year's into action against Stanford and
California. The West Coast is cluttered
up with good foot ball material. A 200
pounder, who is also fast and shifty, is
one of the normal sights of that sec
tion. ♦
This Fall the Southern California
line will average 200 pounds—and there
won't be a slow-footed traveler in the
cast. The Trojan backfleld will also
carry its share of weight and speed.
And it will have all the competition
from Stanford and California any team
will care to face—not overlooking Notre
Dame.
