Marathon Champ Fights Malady: Fine, Unfit, Prey of Scott in Fiasco

Paroxysmal Hemoglobinuria
Seems Not to Annoy
Boss of Harriers.
PAT DENGIS. champion mara
thon runner of the United
States, who began his athletic
career four years ago at the
age of 30 and a year later prophesied
the victory that gave him his title in
The Evening Star race of 1935. comes
to the defense of his crown probably
the most unusual member of the army
of athletes bent upon representing
America in the Berlin Olympics.
On Memorial day. in the fifth an
nual Evening Star race. Dengis, born
in Wales and a naturalized American
Citizen living in Baltimore, will at
tempt to hold the national A. A. U.
championship for 26 miles 385 yards
and with the same effort become one
of three marathoners to gallop for
Uncle Sam in what promises to be
an outstandine contest of the games
at Berlin—the marathon—with the
Japanese, the Finns. Jinn Zabala of
Argentina, winner of the 1932 Los
Angeles race, and the Yanks as keen
Focus on Dengis.
'T'HREE places on the American
team have been allotted to mara
thon runners and one has been as
signed to Tarzan Brown. Narragansett
Indian, who won the recent fortieth
annual Boston Patriots' day race. The
foremost American in the contest here
will be chosen and the third, it is
assumed, will be the runner who made
the best general showing in the two
tests, excluding the winners.
The harrier upon whom most at
tention will rest Memorial day. from
the start at Mount Vernon to the
finish at the zero milestone in back
of the White House—if he gets there—
Will be Pat Dengis.
A year ago. before the national run,
Dengis announced himself the cham
pion. quite seriously—and won.
Three years before, after collapsing
in the same grind and attempting to
escape from Casualty Hospital to fin
ish the race, he prophesied he would
foot it in me 1936 Olympics—' after I
develop these legs."
Champion Looks Healthy.
J^ENGIS achieved his first ambition
when he won the national cham
pionship last year.
With sublime confidence he ran at
Boston last April 20 for a place on the
Olympic team and was yanked after
17 miles. At a hospital it was said
Pat was afflicted with the rare par
oxysmal hemoglobinuria and that his
athletic career might be finished.
It seems that Denris’ ailment has
to do with corpuscles, but to the lay
man he appeared quite healthy last
Sunday, when he was a spectator at
the District A. A. U. 15-mile race, won
by his fellow-member of the Stonewall
Democratic Club of Baltimore. Bucky
"I'll be plenty ready on May 30."
said Pat. But Dr. John Preston, heart
specialist, who will direct the exami
nation of the entrants in The Star
marathon, may snag Pat.

THE first fatality of the fishing
season occurred at Oregon
Inlet last Saturday, J. H.
Powell of Richmond, Va „
drowning when his boat was upset
in the treacherous suit
The boat is reported to have gone
out when the tide was too low for it
to cross the bar with safety. After
riding one of the big combers, the
i boat struck bottom and was over
! turned. All of the anglers were thrown
j into the water and Powell was hit
on the head by the overturned boat
and rendered unconscious. His com
panions grabbed and held him until
the arrival of the Coast Guard boat
All attempts at resuscitation were
futile, however.
Five other boats are reported to
have been capsized, but, fortunately,
all occupants were rescued.
This column has been endeavoring
to obtain better protection for anglers
at Oregon Inlet and in this connection
Capt. Henry E Sweet of the Steam
boat and Inspection Service has in
formed us that a boat has been dis
; patched from Annapolis to Oregon
Inlet as e means toward doing every
thing risible to see that anglers are
A PARTY of 12 anglers, composed of
Government officials and leading
business men. fishing for blues last
Thursday. Friday and Saturday at
Oregon Inlet, had a total catch for
the three days of 89. ranging from 434
to 63i pounds.
“While they were good-size fish,
■ they all were light for their length,
apparently under-fed and biting
1 savagely.” Larry Moore, one of the
party, informed us.
•‘You certainly hit the nail right on j
the head when you said the blues i
did not commence to hit until last
Thursday. All the boat captains
there told us Thursday of last w^ek
was the first day they were landed.
, This week end they should be there
| by the millions, all hungry and at- j
1 tacking fiercely.
‘‘We had better results with the use
i --
of a Japanese feather than any other
lure. Strange as It may seem with
the many channel bass reported in
those waters, we did not land a single ,
one," he said.
In- this party were Stuart B Tul
lus. Taylor G. Addison. Norman E
Simpson, Arthur R. Boone and Ar
thur P Erb, all of the General Ac
counting Office; J. P Wenchell. as
sistant solicitor of the Agriculture
Department: Earl Sechrest, Federal
Power Commission: Ray C. Renne
bcreer. Department of Justice: Larry
W. Moore, Tariff Commission, and Dr.
Davis White Dwight Cook? and Ed
ward Elliott, local business men.
^ Solomons Island reports that two
of his boats went across the bay and
fished in the Honga River over the
week end. Capt. Dick Woodburn, with
a party of local anglers headed by
George Maeey, landed 57 hardhead
weighing 1 l, to 3 pounds, and Capt.
"Smiling” Preston Woodburn with
another party of Washingtonians
aboard hooked 25 weighing from 2'i
to 3 pounds.
The first sea trout of the season
was landed in the Honea River Sun
day by one of the native fishermen of
that section. It weighed 2J: pounds.
Many hardhead also were caught by
native anglers using a rowboat.
Fishing Sunday morning in the
mouth of the Patuxent River. Capt.
George Miles of Solomons landed
seven very large hardhead.
The Potomac in the vicinity of
Chain Bridge drew its quota of an
glers Sunday and until the storm in
the afternoon many small perch were
caught along with some pan rock.
Few of the vast army of herring
snaggers were on hand Sunday, prob
ably due to the fact they did not
know- these fish were there.
The river, which now resembles a
well-baked loaf of bread, probably
will be in pretty good shape again by
tee end of the week.

title scrap involving Champion Fred
dy Miller and Challenger Petey Sarron
next Monday night ^t Griffith Sta
After witnessing some of the most
heated preliminary punching of the
year, local ringworms vacated the
fight center with a sour taste in its
collective mouths. In a bout that
never should have been allowed, Cow
boy Howard Scott trounced Davey
Fine, British lightweight champion,
on a technical knockout after one
minute and five seconds of the fifth
His eyes closed with Monsell's
solution prior to the fight, but cleverly
concealed under a coating of vase

flabby tissue which needs but one
solid smack to reopen the tvound and
Scott was not long in finding the

DY THE end of the fourth round.
Fine's left eye was bleeding freely.
As the cut opened, the dangerous so
lution found its way into Davey's eye
and the Jewish lad, blinded with
pain, called for a doctor.
1 It was Referee Mugsy Morris' privi

Instead, however, he told Fine to

Purse Is Withheld.
'Y'HE District Boxing Commission,
which withheld Fine's purse, was
expected to reconsider its decision to
day. Members of the commission ad
I mitted that Fine was not wholly to

Although the bout added little to

Cowboy took every round.

the secret's out
YOU could read about it until
you’re blue in the face but
you’ll never get just how La Azora
is different until you smoke three.
To say that La Azora’s difference
is its delicate flavor and perpetual
mildness is one thing. To taste it
is everything.
Here’s a cigar that tastes better
the more you smoke.
If you have been smoking 5c cigars
you’ll take this statement with a
grain of salt. But when you smoke
three La Azoras, that “grain of
salt” will melt away.
And it’s all done by different to
baccos, different blending and finer
wrapper. The tobaccos cost more—
but what do you care ? Smoke three;
you’ll want the fourth in a hurry.
