U. S. Up Against It in Weights : Helens Championship-Conscious
Yanks Will Defend Discus
and Shotput—Torrance
Uncertain Asset.
(This is the sixth of a series of
American Olympic track and field
prospects, written by the sports
editor of Vie Associated Press in
collaboration with this country’s
foremost coaches.)
EW YORK, March 21.—Ever
since the celebrated Boston tea
party Americans have been
adept at tossing things
around, for distance or for accuracy.
With the revival of the classic
Olympic games, our supremacy in this
respect was maintained consistently
until javelin-throwing was introduced.
No match for the Scandinavians at
spear-tossing, our brawny lads have
had their leadership challenged other
wise by Europeans in the art of
heaving athletic implements.
At the last Olympics, the U. S. A.
broke even in the four weight events,
retaining the shotput and discus
Dr. Patrick O'Callaghan of Ireland
won the hammer throw for the second
straight time, and the Finns, led by
Matti Jarvinen, dominated the javelin
tossing competition. Both United
Btates winners, Leo Sexton and John
Anderson, have retired.
Yanks May Be Whitewashed.
OINCE then a husky Swede, Harald
^ Andersson, has broken the world
record for discus throwing and, all
things considered, It appears the
Americans will be pressed to escape a
•'shutout" in the Olympic weight
tossing at Berlin next August.
This country cannot count on re
taining even the shotput honors un
less Jack Torrance of Louisiana, the
world record holder, comes back. Tor
rance surpassed 57 feet in 1934 to
shatter all records. But he scarcely
was able to better 50 feet this Winter
and consistently was beaten by Bos
ton’s sturdy Dmitri (Dimmy) Zaitz.
“If Torrance wants to get out and
do a little work and get into shape, he
should be the standout of the world,”
writes his coach, Bernie Moore of
Louisiana State.
"Jack has done 54 feet, without real
practice, outdoors this Winter, so that
I think his indoor setbacks can be dis
Zaitz, on the bases of his rapid im
provement. and John Lyman, former
Stanford star, who has bettered 54 feet,
are capable of landing the other places
on the team. Lyman has been studying
In Germany and may not return for
the tryouts.
For the discus, the United States has
certain point scorers and potential
champions in Gordon (Slinger) Dunn,
a Stanford product, and Ken Carpen
ter of Southern California. Dunn,
now training in Honolulu, achieved
170 feet abroad last Summer and has
exceeded 176 feet In an exhibition.
Anderson's world record is a fraction
short of 172 feet.
Dreyer Is Formidable.
/~)THER possibilities for Olympian
tossing are Claude Walton, Colo
rado University Negro, and several
West Coach collegians, including
Glenn Randell, Henri Laborde and
Phil Levy. Anton Klshon of Bates
tops the Eastern candidates and Jess
Petty of Rice Institute is a star in the
Southwest. •
Fred Tootell, last American to win |
the hammer throw in the Olympics j
<19241 and now track coach at Rhode
Island State, is doing his best to de
velop another world champion. On*
of his pupils, Henry Dryer, who holds
the national title, got off a throw of
181 feet 5 inches last year and prob
ably is No. 1 threat to Ireland’s O’Cal
Tootell has two other prospects in
William Rowe and Irving Folwartshny.
Klshon and his Bates teammate, larry
Johnson, have a chance to crack the
Olympic line-up. So has Chester
Cruikshank of Colorado State, runner
up to Klshon in the national col
legiates last year.
Dean Cromwell, Southern California
coach, suggests we might save expenses
by leaving our javelin tossers home.
Best available Americans, rated in
probable order by the coaches, are:
Charles Gongloff of Pittsburgh, na
tional collegiate champion, with slight
ly over 221 feet: John Mottram, Stan
ford: Mark Panther, Iowa; Horace
O’Dell, Manhattan, national A. A. U.
champion; Clarence Rowland, Fresno
Btate; Warren Demarls, Oregon; James
Danerl, Oregon State, and Bill Guckey
•on of Maryland.

Gray Basketers Beaten, 40-38, by
Former Boosevelt Band.
Erstwhile athletes of Roosevelt High
School proved better basket ball play
ers in the pinch than did several of
this season’s Central five as a Roose
velt alumni team downed the Bright
wood Grays, 40-38, last night on the
court of the Takoma Fire Department.
Led by Jess Black, who scored 12
points, the old-timers of Roosevelt in
cluded Joe Sherman, Jimmy Garner
and Spero Kolius, while the Grays
were kept in the running by Don
Pones, Dewey Poole and Bob Saffran
1 pitch in the opening game of
the season against the New York
Yankees in New York on April 12.
Manager Griffith will not paint
any one of his pitchers for that
particular game, but will try to
have Harper, Gallia and Rice all
ready for the occasion.
Two world records for automo
bile speeding were established oo
the new Ascot Speedway in Los
Angeles. Barney Oldfield lowered
the mark for a mile from a flying
i atart by almost % of a second,
' driving it in 45 seconds flat. Bob
Burman lowered the record by
4% seconds for the same distance
from a standing start, setting a
new mark of 58% seconds.
Two games in the Sunday School
Basket Ball League resulted in
Peck Chapel defeating Keller, 29

out Epiphany, 19-18. James of
Peck and Bixler of Keller starred
In the first game, while Tabb of
Epiphany and Moore of Lutheran
shone in the second.

No Longer Steeled Against Pressure,

iRecently overheard—a duffer speaking: "In a way, I hate to see Spring
come back, with my slice still uncured.”)
O, what to him are dogwood blooms and roses down the lane?
The gold that shines in April’s sun—the silver of her rain?
O, what to him are moonlit nights—the Whitethorn’s burnished fluff.
Who only sees the dreaded slice that’s headed for the rough.
Let nature spread her glory out in crimson, gold and green.
Let tulips guiver in the winds and flash across the scene.
Let daffodils leap to the breeze—while from the vines unfurled
The lyric of the mocking bird rolls out across the world.
He only sees the poisoned arc that starts for trap and sand—
„ He only sees the heel-print’s curse—a niblick in his hand—
The dinky slice that sears the soul and shatters Spring’s romance,
As fatal as the cobra’s kiss—or eke the fer de lance.

HE Hon. Robert T. Jones, jr.t
dropped in at these headquar
ters yesterday with quite a
— tangle to unravel. This con
cerned the winner of the masters’
tournament at the Augusta national,
now only a trifle more than two weeks
The Georgia entry was exuding pink
from every pore, lout his brow was
furrowed. “You can name 20 who
might win,” he said, “and you'd still
have about 20 left.”
“How would you pick ’em at this
date?” I asked.
"How can you do any picking,” Bob
replied, “from a field that includes
Gene Sarazen, Horton Smith, Paul
Runyan, Johnny Revolta, Henry
Picard, Harry Cooper, Lawson Little,
Jimmy Hines, Vic Ghezzi, Tommy
Armour, Willie MacFarlane. Craig
Wood, Walter Hagen and about 40
others who are good enough to break
70 at almost any start?”
"What about a young fellow named
Bobby Jones?” I asked.
Mr. Jones blushed with be
coming modesty. “Not a chance,”
he said.
“Not a chance?” I asked. “When
he shot a 66 at Boca Raton's famous
south course—a 69 over the wind
blown and difficult Indian Creek at
Miami Beach—65s at La Gorse and
from 65 to 68 at the Augusta na
tional? Maybe you never heard of
this fellow or never saw him play?”
Bob smiled a bit wanly. "The main
trouble,” he said, "is that a lot of
people can't understand the difference
batween shooting a 65 in a friendly
round and hooking up 72 holes against
a rack field under pressure—when
you haven’t been under pressure for
some years. I’ve always contended
that tournament golf and friendly
golf were two entirely different games.
And they are.”
The Jones Affair.
"'Y’ES, I’ll admit that, if you insist,”
Bobby answered, "but what of
it? Naturally, I’d like to do a lot I
better than I did in 1934 and 1935.
Naturally, I hope to do a lot better.
But I’m not kidding myself. I know
it’s still a gamble. One thing that
may help a little is improved putting.”
"How did you work this tangle out?”
I asked him.
“By concentrating more on
the right putting stroke than
on the result of the stroke.
“I began to figure more on the right
action of the putting blade—taking it
back smoothly—stroking without any
Jab. with the blade on the right line—
and then letting nature take its course.
This means also a little looser hand
and wrist action. It has worked pretty
well so far this Winter. Just how it
will work under Are if I happen to
blow a couple is another matter. I’d
rather not take this up.”
About Lawson Little.
"YyHAT chance do you give Lawson
Little?” I asked the Georgia
“About as good a chance as any
other star.” he said. “I’ve never seen
any one use a wooden club as well as
Lawson is using driver and brassie
now. He is not only terrifically long,
but consistently straight. You seldom
see so much power under such superb
control. Within the next two weeks
Lawson should get his short game
back to past standards, and when that
happens he will be hard lor any one
to leave behind. He reminds me of
one of those driving machines. I hit
the ball about as far as I ever did, but
I can't keep close to him.”
“Horton Smith won in 1934 and
Sarazen in 1935,” I said. “What
chance do you give them?”
“Both are fine golfers—two of
the best I ever saw. Horton is
playing extremely well, and that
putting stroke of his always
gives him a good chance. It's
the greatest I've ever seen in
“You know about Gene—he may
not be playing well at any given time
—but when he happens to be right he
can keep the ball rolling for 72 holes.
Gene has both the game and the win
ning temperament for tournament
play. Once he has the touch he goes
out after it with slight chance of cav
ing in or slipping in the stretch. When
you size him up there is almost no
weakness in his game—wood—iron—
bunker play—chip shots—putting. He
can hang them all together—and that
usually writes the main story.’*
It is at least cheerful news to know
that Bobby Jones is closer to his 1930
stride again than he ever has been
since cleaning up the map. He pleads
earnestly not to be listed with the
leaders—but there is a general feeling
among the pros he has played against
that he will be much more of a factor j
on this next occasion. It means a lot
to his own tournament to have him
up there—and this only adds to the
strain. If he happens to be among
the first three or four, you'll find proc
tically the entire State of Georgia
headed for Augusta.
In the other two tournaments. Jones
got away to a brace of ragged starts,
which discouraged his supporters. If
only he can keep his putting touch
working as it has been lately we may
see some fireworks.
But at his own request, there will
be no prophecy along this line. Proph
esying about the duration of putting
touches is too risky, anyway.
The main point is that an outstand
ing cavalcade will leave the barrier
on April 2, and the show should be
one of the best of many years.

Sensational 1,128 Is Scored by
Oak Leaf Motors in Second
Game of Set.
By the Associated Press.
Leaf Motors of Chicago were rid
ding high at the top of five-man team
standings In the American Bowling
Congress tournament today by reason
of a dazzling 3,054 total they scored
last night.
The Chicagoans surpassed the win
ning tournament total of last year—
the 3,029 rolled by Wolfe’s Tire Service
of Niagara Palls, N. Y. The second
game figures were the second highest
in A. B. C. history. The Tea Shop
five of Milwaukee, Wls„ holds the
record with 1,186 piled up in the 1927
journey at Peoria, 111.
The Oak Leafs opened up with a
979 game, turned in a sensational
1,128 in the second and wound up
with 947 in the third.
They rolled the second game flaw
lessly, going through the 30 frames
without an error or a split.
The Oak Leafs set the pace for a
general shake-up in the team stand
ings. The Jerry Schultz Tavern of
East Chicago, Ind., pounded out 2,869
:o take fourth place, shoving Chene
rrombly of Detroit, Mich., into fifth
Position with a 2,859.

"Nobody on my club is going to
act that way. I’ll argue Coleman out
of It if it kills him. I’ll show him j
that it only takes one cut to get a
hit. You’ll see him hitting plenty
this year.’’
Next, there is the case of Rollie !
Hemsley, the brilliant Brown catcher.
Hemsley was given up by most man
agers on the theory that he couldn’t
behave. He had the same idea him
self. When Hornsby fined and re
buked him for falling off the wagon,
and asked him why he did it, Hemsley
"Well. I guess I can’t help it, Rog.”
“That’s what you think, and you’re
crazy.” said Mr. Hornsby. He pro
ceeded to correct the impression. From
that time forward Mr. Hemsley has
been a comparatively model citizen.
Cast-Offs Become Stars.
'T'HERE are numerous other instances
A of the Rajah's dissenting ability
and the soundness of his judgment.
American League managers always
are discarding “washed-up” players,
and Mr. Hornsby is always catching
them on the bounce.
He took Julius "Lemons” Solters
from the Red Sox and made him a
star. He took Tom Carey, a cast-off
of the Cardinal chain store system,
and made him a starting second base
man of marked promise. He took
Luckless Lyn Lary and made him an
asset at shortstop.
Big Ed Coleman, mentioned above,
was hitting .077 when Connie Mack
released him last year. In St. Louis
Big Ed wound up the season with
15 doubles, 9 triples, 17 home runs,
and a batting average of .280—.287
with the Browns.
This year Mr. Hornsby’s judg
ment is going to get a sharp test
in the pitching department.
The staff includes two Philadelphia
discards—Roy Mahaffey and Sugar
Cain—and the unfortunate ex-Yankee
southpaw, Russ Van Atta. Mr. Horns
by wants to use all three of them as
starters, if possible. With some prac
tical assistance from them he can
lead the second division.
” JUST give me a couple of breaks and
I’ll beat out the White Sox and
Washington,” said the Rajah, as he
paused for an exhibition date in this
city. “I don’t have to worry about the

IP YOU happen Jo be athletically
minded and entertain ambitions
of sports conquests for your tiny
little daughter when she grows up
you might give her a good start Dy
naming her Helen. A quick glance
over the list of girl champions 6howa
that a flock of fair champions answer
to the name of Helen. No other single
name comes even close to it.
Women's tennis is dominated by a
pair of Helens, Helen Wills Mood7
and Helen Jacobs. Helen Stephens,
the outstanding girl sprinter In the
country, holds the National A. A. U.
championships and is America’s best
bet to win Olympic titles at Berlin.
Flocks of Helens.
J-JELEN HICKS, now a business
woman golfer, held the national
amateur title and was one of the
leading girl golfers in the land for
several years.
And there was Helen Meany, winner
of the Olympic diving championship
at Amsterdam in 1928. Helen Madison
turned professional after she had wo.i
just about every swimming honor pas
sible. She held Olympic and national
championships, and most of the free
style swimming records as well.
The New York Women’s Swimming
Association has a tiny little Helen who
is going to be a threat in future back
stroke races. She is Helen Rains, II
years old and weighing only 74 pound*
—but she can swim.
You'll hear plenty about Helen
Mayer in connection with Olympic
fencing next Summer. She is the
junoesque German girl who is favored
to successfuly defend the fencing
championship she won in 1932 at Los
Angeles. Another Olympian bearing
the name of Helen is Mrs. Helen
Boughton-Leigh, captain of the Ameri
can women's skiing team which com
peted at Garmiseh-Partenkirchen.
Pound-Building ProgTam.
Atlanta. Ga., tennis star, hopes vir
tually to eat her way into the Nation's
first 10 ranking this year. While
many other young ladies are mincing

lamb chop and tea to shave down their
weight. Evangeline sits down to enjoy
meals of:
Steak with potatoes, spaghetti, grits
with plenty of butter—and that sort
of thing.
Last year she sallied forth to the
East for half a dozen "big-time” tour
naments and critics raved over her
possibilities, but lamented: “If she
were only heavier and had the stamina
that necessary weight gives the tennis
But at that, her splendid showing
won her the name. “The Slight South
erner ” This year things will be dif
ferent, the girl tennis luminary says,
and she points to her pound-building
training program as the reason.
“I've gained 16 pounds already since
last Summer.” she declares, with a
note of satisfaction.
Last year Evangeline went to the
quarter-finals in the Southern, lost a
match critics said she should have
won. then made her assault on the
Eastern matches, and climaxed the
season by competing in the national
at Forest Hills.
Twice in Eastern tournaments she
lost to brilliant Mrs. Ethel Burkhardt
Arnold, the young lady who turned pro
after staging an amazing comeback, in
which she won the deciding match to
take the Wightman Cup for America.
