PAGE D—1 " —^---■ « Washington Strongly Represented in President’s Cup Boat Races D. C. PILOTS READY FOR SIX BIG TESTS Orme Family Out in Force. Hyde Hard Put to Keep Sweepstakes Title. A CORPS of local speedsters are burning late oil in prepara tion for at least six of the inboard events this Saturday and Sunday in the President's Cup Regatta. True, we don’t have any of the big Gold Cup or 225-cubic-inch hydro plane boats to loom as threats, still, other events—the American speed boat championship, the Class K in board, the H-I class inboard, the 91 and 135 hydroplanes, the mile trials, women's free-for-all handicap and the All-Washington Sweepstakes— will give the local pilots their big chance of the season. They have been makine the circuits ell year from Norfolk to New Jersey with great success and are ready to repeat. Jack Schneider, in his Chi quita; Jimmy Orme, in the Wooden Horse (which goes like a startled steed when she begins to move), and Jack Hyde, with his Winkle III, supply the tried talent. Gardner Orme, uncle and former mechanic of Jimmy, comes out with a new K runa bout called the Garveo II, which has yet to race under its new owner. As if there wasn’t sufficient of the family already in competition, James Orme. sr„ has been tuning up the Miss Lizzie, the boat that 11 years ago in the first President’s Cup Re gatta took three prizes, including the original All-Washington Sweepstakes. Miss Lizzie, like her namesake, still cam go to town. Powered with a 200 h.p. Scripps, she’s entered in the H-I class. Hyde's Rivals Formidable. 'J'HIS all-Washington event is going to be a hot one. Jack Hyde, winner last year, has to look out for both Schneider and Gardner Orme. Hyde will have to move out in front and stay there if he wants to survive the tidal wave that Garveo Is sure to chum up. Sounds screwy, but these two are rated about even, although Hyde's Winkle III is only 14 feet long and has a 75-h.p. Universal engine, while the 33-foot Garveo carries a 475-h.p. Liberty. It all has something to do with relativity. , Washington will have its single woman driver, Mrs. James Orme, jr., racing in the women's free-for-all handicap. When she isn't serving as mechanic in the Garveo, Mrs. Orme • w>v» V11V vuuww»o XUi LUC C*C1H that include* Maude Rutherford, wife of the current holder of the prized President’* Trophy, Jack Rutherford, in her Miss Palm Beach which races against the champion Ma-Ja in the big event. Schneider has entered his boat in the mile trials to try for the hand •ome cup, which was suggested by the Italian speedboat demon, Count Thro Rossi, and donated by Chris Heurich. The mug goes to the boat making the fastest time over a mile straightaway. Outboards Open Show. TN THE 91 and 135 cubic-inch hydro plane card, Hyde, Jimmy Orme and Echneider have to keep an eye on the veteran outboard driver Sammy Crooks from Rumson, N. J., who turned to the classy 135 s this year. Gardner Orme likewise has to watch out for the fast Miss Severn, formerly owned by Ernest Dobson and now in the hands of Baritone John Charles Thomas, for the class K event arid the American speedboat champion chip. Outboards, more than 130 of them from all parts of the country, open the three-day regatta tomorrow at 11:30, < when the first heat is scheduled. Nine events for both professional and ama teur drivers take up the entire day with such crack names as Fred Jacoby, Douglas Fonda, Thomas Tyson, Jack Combs, James Mullen and many others on the lists. Jacoby, fresh from triumphs at Richmond last week end for the Na tional championship of the outboards, has entered boats in every class pos cible. Saturday the first of the inboard heats are slated at 1:45, including the opener in the President’s Cup race, and resumes Sunday at 2, with the last bit of exhaust smoke and engine roars to fade away around sunset.

This contest was part of the big annual affair here. 1 •POPPING Bomber at Play. IDOLATRY hit a new' local peak last night in Mr. G.’s ball yard. Under the half-dimmed lights pitched high on the roof a big. tan-colored guy with the face of a Buddha statue walked on the field in a base ball uniform and a ridiculous cap on his head And 4.000 dusky, rolling-eyed people who didn't give a hoot and a whit for soft ball . . . whatever a hoot and whit are . . . bowed down to their sovereign. It was Joe Louis’ night. Looking the spectacle at full face, it all seemed sort of silly but I suppose there are explanatory angles attached to the heavyweight boxing champion of the world barnstorming the country with a soft ball team, for which he plays first base. Since the time of John L. Sullivan, anyway, boxing champions have been engaged in extra-curricular activities. Most of them went on the stage. Tunney read books and talked on Shakespeare. Max Baer cut loose in night clubs and made moving pictures . . well, one moving picture. It is explained that Louis' outlet is base ball. For obvious reasons he is not permitted to play regular base ball. With the paternal air that is*shown to a kid who wants a toy, Louis’ handlers have allowed him to have a soft ball team and play on it. It looks funny ... a 210-pound fighting machine engaged in battling a motley group v---— of home-town sand-lotters on a half sized diamond . . . but Louis showed that he loved it with all the expression his dead pan will register. And, I suppose, that is what counts and any-. thing you may think doesn't matter. Offhand, and without ever having experted at a soft-ball exhibition before, I would say that Louis was the worst ball player on the Held last night. He was willing, earnest and pos sessed of a superb sense of enthusiasm. But he was pretty much of a shoe maker around that bag and so scrupu lously honest were the local all-stars, or whatever they were, that Joe almost went through the game without getting the proverbial foul. A great cheer was the crowd’s reaction when Louis’ bat ticked a pitch the third time he came to bat. He whiffed the first time and thereafter he was walked. Umpires Take Night Off. y OUIS reminded you of the rich kid who is allowed to play because he owns the bat and ball. He batted lead-off so the rest of his colored team, which is called the Brown Bombers, could go to work without having to worry about Louis for a while. Messrs. Harry Geisel and Bill Sum mers, a pair of American League um pires, took the night off ar.d went to the ball game. “I am here to learn,” frankly confessed Mr. Geisel. blasting the popular theory that umpires think they know everything. “First of all I want to see a soft ball game. Sec ondly, I want to hear the new inven tion that enables people to hear the umpires’ decisions. ‘‘And, thirdly, I want to see how it feels to watch a ball game from an upper deck once. This is the first time I’ve been in the upper deck of a grandstand." Mr. Summers leaned upon the railing of a box seat and watched a close play at first base. The base umpire waved one of the Bombers out and the dusky men charged him. The crowd went “Boo-o-o!” Mr. Summers smiled happily. “I like thus,” he admitted, cold-bloodedly. “It's great to hear somebody else get ting the booes for a change, isn't it, Harry?” Pitcher Phebus Explains Things. VJt’jfT GEISEL was6 a hit bewildered ^ A by soft ball rules. The Bombers, who have 10 men like the other teams, played a six-man Infield. “Would that be a double-wingback formation”? asked Mr. Geisel, at one point, and Pitcher Ray Phebus of the Nats, who strolled in, tried to explain. “Some of these soft ball fellows can really throw hard,” commented Ray. "We have a boy down home who is as fast as any big league pitcher I’ve seen. 'Course, he only has to throw a few feet. It seems that if you know how to do it you can make the ball curve and even hop like regular pitch ers do.” “It's just a twist, isn’t it”? asked Mr. Summers. "It can’t be a regular curve.” ‘‘No, it's a real curve,” said Ray. “Let's look closely and see if we can follow one.” “Under these lights?” asked Geisel. “I can’t even see a long outfield fly from here. Say, those Redskins don't play under these same lights, do they? They are not very bright.” "Lemme think,” interrupted Sum mers. “It seems I once head an ex planation. Oh, yes. I was talking to a friend of mine who is a minor league umpire. I asked him if it were hard to call balls and strikes. “ ‘Well,’ he answered, ‘it isn’t hard to call 'em when they have a good crowd. Then the lights are turned out real bright. When the crowd isn't big they turn down the lights because they couldn’t afford to pay the electric light bill.’ ” “Mike Mask” Is Tested. A TALL, grimly sincere young man stopped the game in the fourth or fifth inning and made a little speech into the plate umpire’s mask. Inside the hunk of wire was lodged a tiny microphone, which was hooked up to the loudspeakers in centerfleld. When the umpire called a ball there was no need to look at the scoreboard. You heard it. The young man was Jimmy McClung, a Virginian who in vented the “talking umpire” and who is endeavoring to sell it to base ball people. He has an idea the customers would like to hear umpires call their decisions and took time out to exnlain the work ings of his brain child to the trade in Regatta Program Tomorrow. Start.

Mr. Geisel was one who joined In the applause for McClung. ‘‘The young man probably will have a hard time selling his idea,” predicted Handsome Harry. "In the first place he has not a whole lot that base ball already hasn't got. When an umpire's right hand goes up the crowd can see in an instant that he has called a pitch a strike. And. of course, there are appropriate gestures made by the u«ae umpura. “Still, I’d kind of like to be broad casting over one of those microphone masks one day. You don't know what goes on between umpires and ball players. We have a certain number of prize alibi artists and when the ump calls a strike that they don’t like they walk up to you and give you the works. “I’d like to switch on the apparatus at the time one of those peevish fellows cuts loose and let the whole ball park hear it. It would make the umpires’ lot an easier one but it might cause some grief for the club owners. If the fans ever heard some of their favorite players alibing for themselves they’d be off them for keeps.” Mr. Summers looked long and earnestly at the umpire wearing the microphone mask. "I realize the ump is supposed to switch off the loud speakers when he doesn't want to make his words public," he said, "but it would be awfully tough on the absent-minded ones. “Especially,” he added, “if they should happen to have indigestion.” Minor Results (All Play-offs.)

Giants5 With Weak Opponents To Follow Cubs• Feel They’re Safely Over Hump to Pennant BY BILL BONI. Associated Press Sports Writer. IT WAS Hal Schumacher against Curt Davis today as the Giants and the Cubs went into the grand rinale of their super de luxe, pen nant-or-nothing series at Wriglev Field. But, from the Giants' side of the fence, at least half of the battle is won. When Cliff Melton put his six-hit damper on the Bruins yesterday to squelch them. 6-0, it jacked the Terry men's lead back to two and a half games. So, even if the Cubs should belt Schumacher out of the box this afternoon, as they have on three oc casions, the Giants still will go home on top of the pack by a game and a half. Then there’ll be only the Dodgers, Phils and Bees left to subdue—clubs which, from past experience, the Giants know aren't as tough to take as the Cuba. Not that the Cubs were so tough yesterday.. Melton. th<j lanky gangling first-year varsity man who ranks sec ond only to Hubbell on Bill Terry's staff, attended to that. Cubs’ Hits All Singles. HE ATTENDED to it so well that only two Bruins got as far as sec ond base, none of them got more than a single and not a one got a free ticket to first. It was Melton's eighteenth win of the year and one of his best. Behind him the resourceful Giants, with Right Fielder Mel Ott still holding down third base and former Third Baseman Lou Chiozza playing center field, put on a demonstration of snappy fielding that caught two Cubs trying to make singles do the work of doubles and in general served as a proper setting for the Melton gem. Cannon Ball Cliff's performance should bolster Schumacher's morale for ttday's task. Until yesterday, the second-string Giant southpaw had had no more success against Chicago than the first-string Giant right hander. Where Schumacher has been K. O.'d three times, Melton had been I knocked loose from his props once. I Where Hal lost one 1-inning relief job, Melton had been beaten after ; entering the game in the eighth. Neither, until Melton came through, had been able to account for even one of the Giant’s eight wins—all of those had been credited to Slick Castleman, now on the injured list; Carl Hubbell, who did an out-of-turn relief trick in St. Louis; Harry Gumbert, knocked out in the first game, and Don Bren nan. Tanks Game From Flag. jy|ONTE PEARSON'S 4-1 and Kemp Wicker's 11-0 trimmings of the Browns yesterday, despite the fact De troit also won, left the Yanks needing only one more victory or one Tiger defeat to make the American League pennant a certainty. Outside of the Giants’ one-sided triumph, the National League went in for tight baS‘games. The Bees upset the Pirates. 3-2, in 10 innings behind another good Job by Milt Shoffner and the Phillies consigned the Reds to the cellar and moved out themselves by winning, 3-2. The Cardinals made it eight straight defeats for Brooklyn, this time by a 4-2 count. The Tigers, delaying the deadline of their mathematical elimination, whipped the Red Sox. 6-4. as Rudy York connected for the circuit the second day in a row; the White Sox concentrated all their scoring in two innings to rout the Athletics. 9-3. and Jimmy De Shong held off an eight inning rally by the Indians to give Washington a 6-4 decision. ' ~ ■ ■ —■ ■ - ——... - Case, With All-Round Display Of Ability, Wins High Rating Among Nats9 Crop of Rookies BY FRANCIS E. STAN. □JORGE WASHINGTON CASE was the Nationals’ most in teresting rookie before he even pulled on a Griffith A. C. uniform. And now that he has been wearing Washington flannels for a couple weeks, he still is the most inter esting. Chase, a 20-year-old outfielder from Trenton of the New York-Pennsylvania League, refused to sign his contract with the Nats when he was first called from the “farm." It seems there was a bonus promised, or something, and George wanted to collect it. Eventually he signed and with this piece of routine business completed he was more or less last in the shuffle. Clark Griffith had brought up Jimmy Wasdell and Joe Krakauskas, and Ken Chase was performing miracle feats. Later Jimmy Bloodworth came up and Ray Phebus uncorked some great pitching. But Case kept plugging and now, if Manager Bucky Harris had to rate his rookies on what they have shown, he would have to place Case pretty close to the top of the list. The boy who apparently "needs a year in a high class minor league,’’ which was the early consensus of base ball men, may not need anything but a green light in the Nats' plans. He Says Her’s Ready, Too. pROM the start Case established himself as far and away the fleet est of the Griffmen. Then he showed that he could go and get fly balls and throw the ball, and now he is beginning to show that he can hit major league pitching. After a fellow does all these things, little more can be asked. Due to a dislocated shoulder, sus tained while sliding into a base in New York, Case has played only nine games for the Nats, but if these can be taken as any criterion of his ability the young man is ready. Thanks to two sineles in yesterday's 6-to-4 victory over the Indians, Case now has a .342 batting average for his brief fling in the majors. Case is a little on the cocky, devil may-care side. When somebody sug gested some time ago in an informal gabfest that a year in a Class A or AA league would make him ready for the big show, he answered, ‘‘I don’t need a year anywhere. I'm ready now.” This statement was taken lightly at the time, but now nobody is sure that Case needs anything except a regular assignment. At the time of his injury it was feared that he might become "slide shy” as a result of having thrown his shoulder out of place three times this year while hitting the dirt. But as soon as he got back into the game following the New York injury Case slid and has been diving for the bag ever since. Drives Two Runs Across. £JASE played a conspicuous part in yesterday’s victory over Cleveland, which evened-the series which was to end today. He drove across two of Washington’s six runs and handled himself well in the field despite a two base muff of a fly. He took that ball too much for granted but made up for it by grabbing the last two chances to end the Tribe's big eighth inning, when the Indians made all of their runs and two-thirds of their hits off Jimmy De Shong. After Washington had taken a 1-0 lead off Mel Harder in the first inning. Case singled in the fourth to drive across Johnny Stone. This made it 2-0. In the fifth the Nats drove Harder from the box when they bunched four hits with an error, two bases on balls and a hit batsman. Out of this collection of pleasantries Washington made four hits to boost the score to 6-0. Earl Whitehill took over the Cleve land hurling after this big inning and pitched beautifully until the end. Earl did not give up a hit or a base on balls in the last three innings and, despite an error by Lyn Lary. faced only nine men. Meanwhile De Shong was having his troubles. De Shong Collects No. 14. J^OR seven innings De Shong hurled a masterful game. He gave up only two hits, a double by Hal Trosky in the second inning and a single by Julius Solters in the sixth. Then, in the eighth, the Indians began to work on Jimmy. Lary, Hughes and Averill singled in succes sion and before a man had been retired. With one run across De Shong walked Trosky, filling the bases. This brought up Solters. who sent Almada against the barrier in left center for his drive. On it Hughes scored and when Bruce Campbell dropped a double in left field Averill and Trosky also scored, cutting the score to 6-4. Case took care of the rest, though He raced in for Sammy Hale's short Tfl_1-. Pytlak’s long drive, ending the inning. De Shong braced in the ninth and escaped without further damage to grab his fourteenth victory of the season as against 13 defeats. Jimmy now is almost certain to win moie games than any other Washington pitcher for the second straight year. Only Monte Weaver, with 12 wins in 20 games, is close and Harris Is not pitching Weaver regularly any more. Today, for instance, he was to use Joe Krakauskas in the finale against Cleveland. An off-day follows to morrow and then the Athletics will invade. According to the “front office” the chief significance attached to this series will be the unveiling of Joe Kohlman, the pitching sensation from Salisbury. Kohlman will face the A's on Sunday.
