Grid Fans Enjoy Year's Biggest Card : Queer Decisions Worry Boxing Chiefs
ι ι ψ ♦ ι I ♦ SIX LOCAL TEAMS PLAY HERE TODAY Between 40,000 and 50,000 Expected to Witness Quintet of Tilts. WASHINGTON went foot ball minded in a large way to day as half a dozen District elevens, primed for Her culean efforts, trotted out on local battlefields for one of the Capital's biggest days of gridiron warfare in recent years. A seventh District team, George town, sought further glory on a for eign field. The Hoyas, undefeated *nd unscored upon, tackled the Uni versity of Richmond Spiders in the Virginia capital. Today's program Included an inter actional tilt between George Wash ington's undefeated Colonials and Vanderbilt; a clash between two of this section's most powerful forces, Catholic University and Western Maryland: a tradition-steeped "nat ural" between Maryland and Virginia: the District's only annual all-local battle between American University and Gallaudet, and a colored I. A. A. Conference duel between Howard and Morgan College of Baltimore. Between 40,000 and 50,000 Wash Ingtonians were expected to witness the clashes. * New G. W. Backfield. SEEKING to achieve a considerable portion of national prestige, George Washington turned loose m-hat it regards as Its most versatile set of backs for the first time against the Commodores, who were to be en countered at 2 o'clock In Griffth Stadium. Coach Jim Pixlee of the Colonials made an eleventh-hour decision yes terday whereby Ben Plotnicki and George Jenkins, both quarterbacks, were in the game at the same time. Jenkins will call signals while Plot nicki will take over a halfback post. Rounding out the backfield were Tuffy Leemans, chief offensive threat of the Colonials, and Willie Brewer, who has returned to good standing after an early-season attack of the jitters. Brewer, who promised to clinch the poet early in the season, was at the fullback position. Vanderbilt, undefeated and num bering among its victims Georgia Tech and Auburn, went down to a smashing 29-to-0 defeat at the hands of a great Louisiana State eleven last week. Still smarting from the loss the Commodores -were expected to put forth their best effort of the cam paign. Vanderbilt was expected to out weigh the Colonials by several pounds as a team and to hold an advantage of nearly 15 pounds in the line. George Washington's forward wall lost considerable weight when Pixlee sub stituted 175-pound Dave Parrack at right guard for 205-pound Sid Kolker, local boy, and a further weight re duction was necessary when Bernie Witucki was Inserted at center for the injured Red Rathjen. The latter has * 27-pound edge on his understudy. Λ great Individual clash also was expected to mark the Vandy-Colonial clash. In this Tuff y Leemans. ver satile George Washington halfback, was to match speed and skill with Rand Dixon, classy Vandy quarter back, who is touted as one of the best backs in the South. Dixon was assured most of the bur den of ball carrying would be his be fore the team left for Washington, for among the Commodores who did not make the trip was Capt. Gene Beck, fullback. Matt Carloss and Carl Earl, ends, also remained in Tennessee, nursing injuries suffered in the Louisi ana State game. Cards Tackle Tartar. ATHOLIC UNIVERSITY, beaten only by a powerful Holy Cross eleven, faced the necessity of spoiling Western Maryland's record of withstanding point-scoring attacks. The Terrors, hailed as one of the best teams in the East following their 40-to-0 victory over Boston College, successfully have defied offensive threats all season. But, while the Terrors offered a great defense, so did the Cardinals carry a great offensive record into the game. Dutch Bergman's powerful array, which routed Manhattan last week by a 31-to-0 count, has counted 105 points in lour games thus far. In the Brookland Stadium, as at the ball park, a great back was to be uncovered in Bill Shepherd, running, passing and kicking halfback of the Terrors, who is far out in front in the country's point-scoring race and one of the East's leading candidates Xor an all-America berth. The kick-off for the Cardinal-Terror tilt was slated for 2 o'clock. Johnson Is Terp Problem. MARYLAND, a young eleven just reaching Its peak as was at tested by a 21-to-0 victory over Florida last week, was faced with the necessity of stopping Virginia's slash ing fullback, Tommy Johnson, who, despite an injury, was slated to start the game at College Park. It was the eleventh annual game between the Old Dominion and Old Line teams and the Terrapins, with a smart passing attack and a speedy backfield. were installed as favorites to win. Each team entered the game with * record of three victories in five starts. After whipping St. John's, Maryland bowed to Washington and Lee by 7 to 0 and lost to Navy, J6 to 13. Vir ginia Tech and Florida both were beaten handily, however. Virginia has defeated Hampden-Sydney. St. John's and Virginia Military and lost to Dartmouth and Navy. Expected to match the 200-pound Johnson as an offensive threat was Norwood Sothoron, fleet Maryland back who flrst fondled a foot ball in his college days. Sothoron's play has been consistently good all season. A freshman foot ball game between Maryland and Washington and Lee, a pair of girls' hockey games and a varsity soccer game between Western Maryland and Maryland was to pre cede the home-coming day clash. The preliminary program began at 10 o'clock. The varsity kick-off was scheduled at 2:30 o'clock. Eagle· Are Favorites.

ΡΗΟΤΟΰ ΗΑΓ A WHOLE θ°* OP '"PL COPING* ^LAiM 6ULO> / HlXaHEV PlNKEP UP SO MUCH FROM THE PUNISHMENT ME ABSOR&tP, ΑΛΑνΒβ THEV THOUGHT/ HE W*S A PEJ> - HOT FI&MTtR THE SPORTLIGHT Little Things Connected With Golf Swing Can Lead to Major Troubles. BY GRANTÏ.AND RICE SOMEWHAT meiancnoiy noie, on the borderland of a wail, came over the phone. "I tried out two of your recent golf suggestions," a friend said, "and they didn't seem to work." "What were the two suggestions?" I asked. "About keeping the left hand well over and starting the hands back closer to the body," he answered. So. in response to a request, I took a look at hts «wing and discovered again how often the little thinrs connected with a golf swing in reality can be listed with the big things. That is. the things that seem to be minor mistakes can lead to major fanlts. In this particular case, the golfer had his left hind well enough over, but the last two Angers—the little finger and its mate—were held loosely on the shaft. They were not grip ping at all. Yet these two Angers are among the most important. They do a major job in keeping the face of the club where It belongs I Mac smitn, lommy Armour, swu; Jones and other stars will tell you I they concentrate on this detail. ; Also there must be no gap allowed ! between the thumb and the fore ; finger of either right or left hand, ! into which the shaft might drop or i slide at the top of the swing. Both ι thumb and forefinger grips must be firm. There is much more to the grip than just holding the club for It is the grip that must do Its share In keeping the face of the club where it belongs at Impact. Another Detail Overlooked. THERE was another small detail which the golfer in question had overlooked. And yet it wasn't a small detail. It was an important factor. In starting the backswing. with the left hand and left arm In control on more of an inner circle, with the hands moving closer to the right hip, he had failed to let the left hip turn and the left ankle roll inward. Instead of this, he merely lifted the left heel, with the weight thrown for ward on the toe, and the bent left knee pointing straight forward. What difference would that make? Just «boat all the dif ference between a good shot and . a poor one. In the first place, if thir happens, there is no way in which the weight can move with the backswing. In the second place, as Alex Morri son has shown, if the left ankle and left knee are locked, then the left wrist also will be locked, and there can be no proper wrist action from the top or anywhere else. Left shoulder, left hip, left knee and left ankle take the turn together. Lock one and you stop the others. Form, after all, Is a blend of many appar ently minor details or actions. The Right Picture. THE average golfer may think that, in view of all this, his case is hopeless—that he never can get this blend of minor movements. Yet the case isn't hopeless In any way if he only will get a clearer pic ture of what it is all about—if he will figure out just a few basic elements. It is amazing how little real thought Is given to the matter of swinging a golf club. It stands to reason that the ad dress must have Its share of ease and comfort if there is to be any smooth ness in the swing. Yet over 70 per cent of all golfers ire crouched or tied up with leg, body and wrist stiff· ness and tension before they start the swing. How can any golfer, who has planted his feet against the ground, who has planted himself with all the elasticity of a steel girder or a cedar post, expect to switch this high tension into sudden ease and smoothness? The two points referred to by my melancholy friend included placing the left hand well over, giving it more power and control, and swinging more on an inside arc. It included also a clear mental picture of the correct path of the clubhead. But if these operations were car ried out in a hurried, jerky fashion— if other essential ingredients were left out—how could they hope to get any where? Part of his grip was wrong, and just how could any one expect to complete a backswing with most of the weight and strain still on the left leg and left foot? That shouldn't be so hard to answer. Back to the Swing. It is to help bring about this mat ter of greater natural ease and smoothness that Ernest Jones (Miss Virginia Van Wie is one of his pupils) stands by your side and chants, "Swing, swing, swing."

VERDICT TO HUCHES !IS CLASSIC Ml» Lopsided Victory Seen for Frattini—Wilson Family Is Given $609. BY FRANCIS E. STAN. FOR the first time since legali zation of boxing six months ago, the District Boxing Com· mission today started serious worrying over the weirdest and most odious brand of decisions in the United States. When a fighter wins eight of 10 rounds in a walk and then loses "It's time something definite was done," quoth Maj. Harvey L. Miller, secretary of the commission, today. "The decision in favor of Frankie Hughes over Mike Frattini was al most inconceivable. I don't see how it was possible to give Frattini less than seven of the 10 rounds." Indeed, even Maj. Miller was a little light on the verdict. How Frattini. who won the first five rounds without drawing a single solid blow in return, possibly could have been awarded less than eight rounds Is a mystery to us. Yet, nothings impossible. That was proved last night at the Washington Auditorium when Referee Denny Hughes and Judge Henri di Slbour cast their votes for Hughes, the trans planted Wisconsin welterweight, who for some mysterious reason Is regard ed as a main-event rlngman In the Capital. Frank Schuyler—"easily our most consistently accurate judge," again to I quote Maj. Miller—voted for Frattini. Charity for Hughes, Too. THE verdict came as a distinct blow to fans and press alike, calloused as they are to Wash ; ington's weekly weird decisions. The show was a charity affair, with a sizable portion of the proceeds going to the family of Allen Wilson, local newspaper route agent who became an Innocent victim of a gang war here recently The Wilson family profited to the extent of $609 and Hughes walked away with a charity decision that might well cause Frattini to throw up the sponge for keeps. A crowd of only 1,642 paid *1,741. Thirty-five per cent, Including the Boxing Commis sion's 5 per cent "take." was turned over to the Wilson family. All Hughes had was an uncanny ability to "take it." This quality he needed to finish on his feet for Frankie's was one of the worst beat ings ever handed out over a full dis tance here. Frattini, a recent impor tation from Italy, proved a battler with dynamite in both fists, but a little short on wind. He weakened slightly in the late going and Hughes, in characteristic fashion. belatedly warmed up at this stage, but despite this Frattini was more than his match at the end. Decision Embarrasses Lake. THE first five rounds were all Frat tini. Weighing 14S to 145 for Hughes, the Italian belted the "Cowboy" mercilessly and at will and what held Hughes up was a general mystery. In the press row the scoring was done on the five-point system. In the first three rounds all Hughes was given was a point (or walking out of his corner and another point for walking back. Not until the fourth round did Hughes land a real blow, an overhand right to Frattini's head, but the Ital ian continued to chase and belt Frankie in this heat and in the next. Frattini appeared slightly punched out In the sixth and Hughes, who up to this point had indulged in practi cally no exercise of his own volition, threw enough punches to win the round. Frattini came back, however, to win the seventh and "assure" him self of the verdict barring a knock out. Then apparently he sewed it up even tighter—on The Star score sheet, anyway—by winning the eighth and ninth rounds. Hughes was credited with his second round in the tenth. There was no doubt in the minds of the fans as to the winner. Had not the possibility of a knockout for Frattini loomed so brightly many fans might have walked out of the arena, so one-sided was the affair. Many were outside when the . astounding verdict was blushingly and timidly read by Announcer Jimmy Lake, who half-ran across the ring as he read the official slips. Wolfram's Streak Crows. Frankie wolfram of Canada claimed his twenty-second win in a row today as a result of his eight-round triumph over Billy Landers of Norfolk in the semi wind-up. Wolfram had a six-pound pull in weights and this proved too much for Billy. Wolfram weighed 125; Landers, 119. On a decision only mildly weird, to coin a description. Bobby Lowry won a flve-round verdict over an other local welterweight, Pete Bevans. The loser, who went down for no count in the final heat, seemed to deserve nothing worse than a draw. Schuyler called it even, but again was overruled. Joe Green, local featherweight, was knocked to the canvas in the second round of his five-heat tussle with Tommy Horn of Baltimore, but he bounced up to win going away. Other results: Frank Minerva, New York, and Le Roy Dougan. Washington, featherweights, drew In five rounds: Joe Firrone, New York, technically kayoed Lee Rosen, Baltimore, four rounds, and Buddy Hayes and Young Stone, local colored welters, drew In three rounds.
