Armstrong, Featherweight, Conceded Chance to Beat Welter Champ
Whether Little Ringman Is Great or Bigger Ones Not, That Is Question. By SPARROW McGANN. NEW YORK, Nov. 29—Henry Armstrong is being touted as a sure knockout victor over Lou Ambers when, and if, the dusky featherweight champion meets the leader of the lightweight division. Assuming that Hermiker Lou would want no part of assassin Henry, the goggle-eyed fans and experts are giv ing Armstrong a possible chance of taking the welterweight crown from Barney Ross. When a natural 126-pounder, who can do tricks with the scales and re tain his effectiveness, is rated the equal or superior of the leaders of two heavier divisions, the thought occurs that the lighter man is something of a marvel or that the heavier lads did not come by their leadership by fair means. If spirited contention such as Pedro Montanez and Ceferino Garcia gave Ambers and Ross in September is any criterion of the respective merits of Lou and Barney, then some thing must be wrong with the think ing apparatus of those who rate Arm strong so highly. Kayo Is Messy Job. 'T'HE St. Louis-bred Negro, who kicked around Los Angeles several years before he got, a chance on the bigtime, is a good enough fighter in his own diggings. No one who saw the ease with which he defeated Mike Bel loise and Pete Sarron will deny that. Or the ease with which he has been spotting fairly good lightweights and throwing in a handy whipping to clinch matters. However, Armstrong’s recent knock out over Billy Beauhuld left something to be desired. A bad cut over the bridge of the nose and several promi nent bumps near the temple showed that Marse Henry knows how" to bring his harfl head into play when required. And a low left hook just before the bell sounded to end the fourth round did not help the willing Beauhuld. The latter went to his corner reeling from the effect of the pain and hardly was able to come out for the next round. Armstrong admittedly is a harder puncher than Lou Ambers. This point, however, is not enough to discount the lightweight champion's edge in boxing ftnd crafty ring work. Pedro Mon tane* compiled an impressive string of victories in order to gain the right to meet Ambers for the lightweight crown, but the Puerto Rican failed to land his sleep wallop In 45 minutes of fast stepping. Ambers nullified Pedro's leads by beating him to the punch with a lancing left and cuffed him considerably with inside upper cuts. Sounds Bad for Ross. Armstrong had difficulty solving Sarron's bobbing and weaving for several rounds, and the latter is no Ambers in that style of boxing and does not have the durability of the hatchet-faced Italian to carry on round after round. Then there is the fact that Ambers met up with and lasted the route against one of the greatest punchers in the welterweight division in the person of Jimmy McLarnin. Barney Ross, in defeating Tony Can roneri, won the lightweight crown from a great fighter. He went on to whip McLarnin twice. No one yet has had the temerity to class Ross as a fluke champion, but giving Armstrong a chance to whip Barney practically amounts to the same thing. Armstrong will not lack for action while attempts to match him with Ambers or Ross are taking place. The punch-master has engagements with Tony Chavez at Cleveland on Decem ber 6 and, if four colored victims can be obtained, Marse Henry will strut his stuff at Birmingham. New Orleans, Mobile and Houston, with two days of rest between each effort. SOUTHEAST ELEVEN CLAIMS CITY TITLE Merchant (bidder* Beat Warwick, 13-12, to Keep Slate Clean in Unlimited Class.

Holds Ring Show Listed 23 Years By the Associated Press. , 'T'ORONTO, Nov. 29—William Hanna, an Irishman and senti mental, will stage an amateur box ing show Wednesday—23 years after it first was scheduled. Hanna and nine friends organised the Maple Leaf Athletic Club August 3, 1914. They asked the Ontario government for a club charter and made plans for the ehow. Hie next day Canada was at war. Permission for the fight card was granted but Hanna and his nine friends already had signed, up for another fight. All, except Hanna, Were wounded fatally overseas. \ Just the other day Hanna re ceived the charter of the Maple Leaf Athletic Club from the gov ernment. So the show goes on.

Anxious mamas, proud papas, fond sweethearts, all in search of the ideal Christmas gift, often wind up in the pet shop, the breeding kennel or at the dog dealer's. And what more closely approaches the ideal gift than a dog? Where else can you buy love, a devotion that lasts a life time, a never failing source of entertainment, an interest that is sustained over the years? However, in buying a dog there are certain dos and dent’s far more important in this pur chase than in mqgt others. The first do concerns the integrity of the dog seller. Do make sure you are dealing with worth all that the reliable breeder asks for him. Don’t buy a St. Bernard if the proposed recipient live* in a one-room apartment. Likewise don’t buy a Pom eranian for a 200-pound he-man who glories in the great outdoors. There is a breed for each individual, and a very little search often reveals the right one. The Welsh terrier often would fill the bill for the longer for an Airedale who lives in close quar ters. A Shetland sheepdog is the an swer to the suppressed desire of many for a oollie. Maiden ladies who are very precise in their ways might pre fer a sedate toy breed, perhaps the new-old pug dog, to a rambunctious terrier. The 12-year-old boy rather would have a terrier or a larger dog than a toy. The country dweller A trio of Shetland sheepdog puppies owned by Beechtree Farm Kennels. a reliable and reputable breeder or dealer. An unscrupulous one tem porarily can cover many defects, hide symptoms of early illness, fake pedi grees. and refuse to give either aid or advice once the money is in his possession. Breeding Is Expensive. T>UY as good a puppy or dog as you can afford. You will be proud of each of his many virtues, regardless of whether you are interested in showing or not. As the dog becomes more and more a part of your life, you will find that you are learning more all the time of what his breed standard calls for, and subconsciously comparing your dog with the ideal. Remember, that breeding, raising and selling dogs Is an expensive business and that a good puppy generally is 10 HEIGHTS HERE Boxing Advance Sought by Abrams, Barrie, Manuel, Dupre Tonight. By BURTON HAWKINS. FISTIANA'S treadmill will cease revolving temporarily tonight when several fighters hop off at Turner s Arena and attempt to wedge their way onto an escalator already overburdened with ring hope fuls. Foremost among the prospects will be a local lad, George Abrams, cradled In amateur ranks here and now re garded as this sector's leading can didate to travel anywhere in particular along boxing's bumpy trail. A modest, hard-hitting middleweight, the trim Jewish boy has compiled a record of 12 successive victories since entering professional ranks seven months ago. An avid student of the game, he patterned his infighting style after that employed by Freddy Steele, world middleweight champion, who instructed George in some of the finer phases of face lifting when in train ing here last summer. probably would appreciate a gun dog above all others even if he doesn't hunt. Another factor to be considered in the purchase of a puppy is the pup's age. In many cases a grown dog proves to be the better choice. The young puppy is subject to infantile ailment., will chew on things, dig and tear, has had very little or no train ing, but is utterly adorable. The older dog does not need to be fed so often, is past his puppy troubles, may have had some house training and often can adapt himself better to the ways of an adult house than the younger can, ^JOING hunting? Take a dog. The amount of game wounded and un retrieved each hunting season is ap palling. A good dog will save the needless suffering, the wasting of game and the disappointing trek home without a bag. He also will add ma terially to the day's enjoyment. Bronx Show Is Finale. rFHE Bronx, New York, Kennel Club show on December 5 is the last all-breed fixture of the year. Then comes a respite for Eastern fanciers until the Baltimore show starts the ball rolling again on January 28. * Maltese terriers practically are an extinct breed now, but time was when it was a popular and expensive breed. As long ago as the middle of the 16th century a dog lover of Rome paid the equivalent of $10,000 for one of this breed. The transaction was witnessed and -recorded by I’lisst Aldro vandl, an Italian naturalist of the time. The tiny Maltese terrier was well established in the land of Malta when the Phoenicians settled there in 1500 B. C. It Is believed that it is the dog worshipped by the ancient Egyptians.

Club Open Next Summer. By W. R. McCAIAUM. SCENE of golf's biggest money operations during the early part of 1938—Shawnee Country Club at Shawnee-on-Delaware, Pa. More than 820,000 In cash, which is a bunch of potatoes, is going to be spread around among America's top notch pros In a two-week jamboree o? golf to he held at Shawnee late in June and early in July. Fifteen grand will be laid on the line for the boys who play in the Professional Golfers’ Association tourney there, starting July 10, while at least $5,000 more will be dished out for an open tourney to follow the National Open champion ship, probably around the third week in June. Art Brown, who has leased the Shawnee establishment from the Worthington family, announces that the golf course, one of the outstanding layouts in the East for two decades, will be considerably lengthened for the P. G. A. tournament. West Soon Due Tourney. , rJ''HIS, by the way, marks the third straight year the professional match play event will have been staged in the East. It was held at Pinehurst in 1936 and at Pittsburgh last May. It must go West in 1939, if the P. G. A. is to satisfy the demands of the Western pros. Shawnee has been the kind of course where a red-hot golfer could score amazingly low, but it won’t be a soft touch in the tourney next July. New tees have been built on many of the holes, pushing the markers back for a total added distance around 300 yards; bunkers have been pulled in closer to the greens and the whole layout has been toughened until the big shots won't do any 65s as they have done in the Shawnee open tournaments of past years. Even the famed Binnie kill hole—the 16th of the course —has come in for some shifting. This is a 1-shotter across an arm of the Delaware River and is one of the famous short holes of the land. Already Financial Success. gROWN told Willy Cox a few days ago that the P. G. A. tourney al ready is a financial success. He has sold enough advertising in the tour nament program to pay the rap of 15 grand, and propably the tournament will make money. Gate receipts won’t bring in any startling amount of dough, for Shawnee, even though it’s fairly close to several smaller Penn sylvania towns, is 90 miles from New York and about the same distance from Philadelphia. - So the pros will have more than $25,000 to shoot for in three open tourneys next June and July. The National Open for $5,000, the Shawnee open for another $5,000, and the P. G. A. for $15,000 follow in rapid succession. It looks another big money year for the boys ■who make a living by knocking in 6-foot putts. JANKOWSKI IS BETTER Injured Packer Resting Easily. Look for Skull Fracture.

T Frisco Joe Cronin, the stalwart Irishman from California, who piloted Washington’s ball club into a world series in 1933, probably never will be a great golfer like Baseball Players Sammy Byrd and Babe Ruth, but if he has his way golf will be his game after he retires from baseball. And Joe. for a. rnmnarftt.iv» frMhman •• — in golf, does pretty well. Just now he's in the throes of changing his golf style, which isn’t easy to do for an accomplished llnksman. But Joe thinks that when he gets set with his new style he'll be able to take Pappy in-Law Griffith every time they start. Which also isn't any soft spot. Just now Joe works out nearly every day at Indian Spring, where he has been able, by some choice chipping and putting, to get around in 79 or so as his best mark. He usually scores around 85, and he aims to be a con sistent high 70s shooter. You'd think that a lusty lad like Cronin would be a golf ball slugger par excellence. But it isn’t so. Joe can pole those tee shots a long way when he gets behind ’em; any ath letic gent with 180 pounds of well conditioned muscle and natural ability can hit a tee shot. But Joe, smart guy thaj he is, realises long hitting alone doesn’t make a golfer. So he has concentrated on the short game, in which department he has been helped by Griff. Today Joe Cronin is one of the better chippers you’ll find anywhere. Put him 25 yards from the pin and he'll knock it pretty nearly stone-dead every time. He got that from Griff and from George Diffenbaugh, who happens to be a master of the chip shot. But when Joe winas up on a tee shot that ball goes away from there a long way. "I played with Joe the other day at Chevy Chase.’’ said George. “On that sixth hole, which I rate as Washing ton's toughest par 4 affair, I hit a pretty good tee shot. And I didn't miss my second shot, which I hit with a spoon to the green. But Joe knocked his tee shot so far he was home with a 7 iron. “That'* one sample of how far he can hit ’em when he meets 'em. He was so far ahead of me oft the tee it make me look like a piker, and I didn’t miss my tee shot, either. Joe can become a very good golfer, and I don’t know any one who likes the game more than he does. Of course, he has a high goal to shoot at. Mr. Griffith (George always calls him Mr.) is one of the best men I know around the green. Joe got tired of paying off on those chips that Mr. Griffith laid up around the hole and concentrated on his own chipping game until he's darned good. But the main point is that he wants to im prove, and that counts for plenty.” 'J'HE long-hitting boys aren’t going to make that new twelfth hole at Columbia into an easy par 4 any more. For years past the slugger* have fig ured on catching up on par at the twelfth hole, which has been one of those easy par-5 affairs. But they are building a well-trapped new green at that hole, to be in use next spring, which will convert the hole into a much tougher 3-shotter than it ever has been. The hole won’t be lengthened an inch, but they've stuck the green around the corner of a bunch of trees nearer the thirteenth tee, and any guy who reaches it in two wallops has played two very clever shots. We've seen the old twelfth played with a drive and a mashie, but they won't do that any more with watered fairways and the new location of the putting green. Old-timers at Congressional recall Charlie Penna as the caddie-master at that club during the regime of Tommy and Sandy Armour. But maybe they don't know that Charlie today is rated one of the best golfers around Chicago in the pro ranks. Charlie hasn't won anything much, barring the assistant pro’s title in the Chicago area, but Tommy rates him as one of the best of the younger pros. And to prove it he take* him as a partner in pro-pro tournaments. Penna always could knock the ball a long way, particularly with the iron clubs. By GEORGE E. HI RER. IN THE hunter-* armory no gun is given more loving care than the deer rifle, and no gun is used less. Every mechanism is kept oiled and in perfect condition, the telescope sights are adjusted to a hair, and the prize-grain stock is hand polished until it can be used for a mirror. Seldom, however, is it taken out Seasons are short around here, deer are not as common or as plentiful as they once were and license and guide fees make an expensive item when It is considered that the aea son limit is one in the three nearby States of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. Many a deer hunter is des tined not to go out this year; others will go out and fail to find game, and only a small percentage will bring back the one buck allowed them. What makes deer hunting the pas tiflJe it is? Game is judged from the sportsman's standpoint on these three things—difficulty of finding, difficulty of shooting and eating quality. That makes deer the premier game animal around here. They are hard to find—it often takes two or three days in the field to sight even one. and even then it takes a good woodsman to get close enough for a shot. And when you are close enough for a shot It still is another matter to place a ball in a vital spot. The last point Is easiest of all to answer, nothing Is better than a good venison steak. Virginia Bears Alsu Game. 'J'HE Virginia swamp bear also is considered one of the big game animals, but they are sluggish and fairly easy to approach, even though It is another matter when it comes to finding a vital spot In its anatomy for a rifle slug. And as to eating, well, a bear is all right but It falls to top venison. This year the Maryland Con servation Commission has noted an increase in the deer supply, and has opened the entire State to hunting. Last year hunting was confined to but three counties—Allegany, Garrett and Washington. Now, however, you can go after buck all over the State, although it is likely that for the most part deer hunting still will be con fined to those three counties. This year the open season Is from December 1 to 5, with the exception of the Woodmont RoS and Gun Club in Washington, where the season Is from December 15 to 24. In Virginia, east of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the season extends until December 31 In the open counties, of which there are only a few.

It may divide forest from pasture or from cultivated fields, or the break may come between meadow and hedgerow. The margin of a stream or pond is “edge," as is the seashore, and the dividing zone be tween a sharply drained slope and1 a bottom-land marsh. New develop ments of edge appear in soil conserva tion work, particularly in strip crop ping—the planting of contours of close-growing, soil-holding, silt-catch ing bands of plants between cultivated strips. “Edge” is favorable to a r*eh and varied plant and animal life. Birds and animals thrive in the edge zone where they can turn to the best of two contrasting environments. Pood is more varied and abundant and there is more protection. Shore birds, for example, are a great and varied group inhabiting an “edge" and choosing what they wish of both land and sea. Dense forests shade out undergrowth and is unfavorable to wildlife, but where it changes to open grassland, the berried shrubs thrive, insects and other food are abundant and birds and animals multiply. Strips, terraces, sodded channels, reforesting and the planting of shrubs, vinm and cover crops for soil protec tion all help increase the variety and abundanoe of food -and cover for birds and animals.

Don’t Know Rules. “J^OW, the rules allow you to brush away impediments with a club, but you mustn't apply any weight.
