Farrington, Mesmer, Cotton
Named Judges—Girls to
Play Saturday.
By BURTON HAWKINS.
Astute judges of basket ball flesh,
for the first time in the six-year
history of The Star's metropolitan
Interscholastic tournament, will select
the outstanding player in the event
to be inaugurated tomorrow night at
Tech High gym. Their unenviable
task calls for something akin to sifting
the sands of the Sahara and selecting
the smoothest grain.
Freddy Mesmer. dapper Georgetown
coarh; Fod Cotton, Catholic University
court mentor, and Max Farrington,
George Washington athletic director,
comprise the committee named not
only to select the finest boy performer,
but, also to judge the best and second
best suburban boys’ teams. Handsome
trophies will be awarded the winners
in each instance.
Not since The Star's tourney started
In 1933 has the event boasted as many
individual aces. Clint Quantrille, Russ
Lombardy and Lee Lusby of Eastern;
Jim Giebel, Joey Gallagher and
Johnny Swagart of St. John’s, and
Bob Custer and Len Stanton of
Western are a few of the lads capable
of snatching the individual trophy.
General all-round effectiveness, defen
sively and offensively, will be con
sidered paramount in making the
selection.
Suburban Competition Hot.
Hardly less difficult will be the job
of choosing the best and second
best suburban outfits, for Bethesda
Chevy Chase, Washington-Lee, Mount
Rainier, Georgetown Prep and Fred
ericksburg are rated nearly on a
par. Bethesda-Chevy Chase, the only
scholastic team to trounce the highly
regarded St. John’s quint, apparently
would be favored at first glance, but
Washington-Lee has trimmed Bethesda
and the remaining clubs are de
termined to capture the coveted
awards.
The tourney will be launched with
6t. John's meeting a primed Fred
ericksburg High team at 8 o'clock, to
be followed by a collision between Be
thesda-Chevy Chase and Mount Rain
ier. Friday night Eastern will face
‘ Georgetown Prep at 8 o'clock, with
the nightcap a battle between West
ern and Washington-Lee. Semi-finals
will be staged Saturday afternoon at 2
o'clock, with the final Monday night.
The girls’ tournament, to be heid as
a separate event during the prelim
inary stage, will be staged at the Uni
versity of Maryland men's gymnasium
Saturday night at 7:30 o'clock, with
Sherwood meeting George Washing
ton in the first game and Bethesda
Chevy Chase facing Mount Rainier.
There will be no admission charge.
Western Quint in Fettle.
Victors in the girls’ preliminary
round will square off in the final Mon
day night prior to the boys' game at
Tech High. Admission to all boys’
cards will be 25 cents, with the profits
to go to the Community Center De
partment.
Western, defending champion, to
day keyed its collective scoring eye
following a 26-22 triumph over Wilson
In grabbing a second place tie with
Roosevelt in the interhigh series finale.
The Red Raiders unveiled a scor
ing threat in Bob Holloran, a stubby
forward who has confined his efforts
chiefly to smooth floor work this sea
son Holloran flipped in 9 points to
lead Western's offensive maneuvering,
and, coupled with Stanton and Custer,
gives the defending titleholders an
added punch on the eye of The Star
competition.

Colonials, 44-39 Victors in
Thriller, Face Vengeful
Quintet Tonight.
By BILL DISMER. Jr.
Shooting for an invitation to the
National Intercollegiate Basket Ball
Tournament and an undefeated sea
son at home, George Washington
plays its last game of the year at Tech
High tonight when it meets Loyola
of Chicago in the "rubber” game.
With the prospect of another “dog"
battle between the rivals, whose three
game series was evened last night
when G. W. won a 44-39 thriller, a
rapacity crowd is expected to watch
the conclusion of the feud.
The tap-off between "Snow White"
Novak and Jack Butterworth is sched
uled for 8:30, the varsity tilt being
preceded by a game between G. W.'s
unbeaten freshmen and the Bureau of
Investigation at 7:30.
Should Bp Hot Game.
With animosities between Novak
and Sid Silkowitz and George Hogan
and Capt. O'Brien lending color, the
game should provide a fitting climax
to Washington's collegiate court sea
son.
The two pairs of players nearly
came to blows last night, but later
shook hands under the showers.
One thing certain—if G. W. takes
the lead tonight Loyola will snap out
of its zone defense before the start of
the second half, when it waited to
abandon the formation last night.
The Chicagoans might not have done
so then had the Colonials not given
signs of being content to pass the
ball around in back court.
O’Brien in Star Bole.
For with Bob Faris coolly potting
set shots for eight of G. W.’s first nine
points, the Colonials had a 20-15 lead
at half time. Getting the ball at the
second tap-off. O'Brien & Co. had
proceeded to play catch while Loyola's
zone waited for an attack which
didn't start until they forced it. Fi
nally changing, the Loyolas, with Sid
Kautz leading the way, tied the score
at 27-27.
The lead changed hands three times
in the next five minutes, but O’Brien's
high arching shot over even ‘'White's”
paws gave the Colonials a 34-32 ad
vantage which they never lost.

OLD INJURY HURTS NAT ROOK’S CHANCES.
Here’s Trainer Mike Martin attending the hurt to Pitcher
Joe Haynes’ left arm in the clubhouse at Orlando, Fla. The
right-hander’s bid for a big league berth is threatened by a
wound that has resisted treatment for months.

By ■ Staff Correspondent of The Star
ORLANDO, Fla., March 2.—Rookie
Joseph Walter Haynes, a slim right
handed pitcher from the Jacksonville
club of the Sally League, is the Na
tionals’ first casualty of the 1938 sea
son. To Haynes also may fall the
definitely dubious distinction of being
the first player to be cut loose.
It is not Haynes’ lack of ability
which possibly may mark his 1938
finis as a National. The 20-year-old
recruit from Columbia, S. C., im
pressed in his two-day trial with his
fine “action.” But Haynes has a
puzzling wound on his left arm and
President Clark Griffith, upon medical
advice, has decreed the youngster un
dergo an operation. There is only a
slim chance that he will recover in
time to make a new bid for a major
league job this spring.
A “dead” bone in Haynes’ left
shoulder prompted an operation last
November. A gaping, 6-inch wound
was left and it has been running for
six months. As a result the boy, who
stands 6 feet 2 Inches and who
i
weighed 180 a year ago, lost weight
and strength.
When Trainer Mike Martin dis
covered the ailment he suggested
medical advice. X-rays were taken
yesterday at a local hospital and Grif
fith, providing the boy’s parents okay
the idea, will arrange for another op
eration here in the next few days. It
will be at least 10 days before Haynes
will be ready to pitch again.
Haynes, only two years removed
from the American Legion ranks, im
pressed Griffith and Manager Bucky
Harris last spring when he faced the
Nats in an exhibition game. At the
time he was pitching for Chattanooga,
then managed by Clyde Milan. The
latter now is a coach with Wash
ington.
Milan dispatched Haynes to Jack
sonville, where he broke even in 22
games, his first season as a pro. He
allowed only 184 hits ni 187 innings
and fanned 104 batters. Milan tabs
him a real prospect and Alec McColl,
the old Washington pitcher who man
aged Jacksonville in 1937, touts
Haynes as one of the most polished
rookies he has ever seen.

Daily Review in a bloody battle in
which Mullins’ fine left jab decided
the issue.
Brhel, a murderous right-hand
puncher, took only 1:53 of the first
round to stop Paul Bynum of the At
lanta Journal. Brhel nailed Bynum
with a terrific right hook that put
Bynum down and stopped the fight.
Bill Speary of the Inquirer team was

TO COLLEGE BOXING
Health Leader at University of
Washington Says It Breeds
“Punch Drunkenness.”
By the Associated Press.
SEATTLE, March 2.—Dr. David C.
Hall, director of the University of
Washington health service, advocated
today abolishing college boxing be
cause it ‘often leads to student
•punch drunkenness.' ”
The campus physician, a former

champion at Brown University, said
‘‘any sport, the object of which is to
render an opponent unconscious, is
fundementally wrong and should be
abolished.
“Tne more acute the intellect, the
more susceptible is the brain to in
jury. Blows to the head cause small
hemorrhages of the brain. Continued
concussions * * * finally result in
‘punch drunkenness.’ ”

which nicked the second-place Um

Chamber of Commerce League. Helen
Mcllvaine’s 106—285 abetted the three
fine efforts of 122, 112 and 101 turned
in by her leader. Florence Thomp
son's last-frame strike in the first game
gave the Canaries their only decision
over the front-running Orioles.

Ring Commissioners Grant
Barlund's Plea Against
Chest High Tights.
By GAYLE TALBOT.
Associated Press SDorts Writer.
NEW YORK, March 2—Those who
have followed the fistic career of
Buddy Baer, the saner of the two
brothers, will feel let down to learn
that the secret of Buddy's mounting
success has. or will be, exposed.
The disclosure, for such It Is, comes
at a particularly painful time, for the
cub of the Baer family Is scheduled
to meet his first really Important test
at the Garden Friday night against
Gunnar Barlund, known as the
Flailing Firm.
Some of Buddy's more enthuslastlo
admirers, Influenced by his knockout
victories over such tough customers
as Abe Simon and Eddie Hogan, were
beginning to see In him the successor,
several times removed, of his big
brother Max as world heavyweight
champion. Joe Jacobs, manager of
Max Schmeling, had predicted even
that Buddy would win the title by
1940.
Charge* Tights Are High.
But now comes Barlund's manager,
Paul Damski, with a revelation that
shocked the boxing commission at its
meeting yesterday.
Damski has discovered, so he claims,
that Buddy has been wearing special
tailor-made ring trunks that are. by
artful design, a full 3 inches higher
around the waistline than any ever
made before. They rise, he claims,
almost to Buddy's armpits and are a
serious mental hazard to any oppo
nent.
‘‘No fighter’s ever dared take a shot
at his stummick,” Damski told the
amazed commissioners. "Why? Be
cause they can't see it for all those
clothes he wears. We demand he cut
them off at least 3 inches, north and
south, or we don't fight.”
Nobody before Damski, apparently,
had noticed Baer's highwater britches,
but his charges immediately recalled
to ringsiders that Buddy hadn't, in
fact, been socked much around the
body in his sensational knockouts of
Simon and Hogan, though he ex
hibited in each fight an abnormal
ability to take it on the jaw.
Admits Ruddy’s Jaw Is Strong.
"Sure,” Damski agreed. "He's got
a good jaw, better than Max's. But
what Gunnar and me want to find
out is how does he like 'em down
below.”
Faced with such logic, the commis
sioners had no alternative. Buddy
will come into the ring Friday night,
they stipulated, in store-bought, sen
sible garments, and that will be galling
to a scion of pugilism's best-dressed
family.
Buddy, who never fought an ama
teur bout and who has been in the
ring only since 1933. is training with
Max over at Lakewood, N. J. Max
has an engagement coming up with
Tommy Farr, whose springboard to
fame was a win over Max in London
last winter.

New York Italian, will stack up

ented punchers as Ginger Foran, Kid
Chocolate and Mike Belloise, was se
lected as Archibald's opponent after
A1 Reid, who trounced Tony Dupre
in his last appearance here, refused
Ahearn's terms.
Jack Dempsey, former world heavy
weight champion, will referee the
bout, which will mark Archibald's
first engagement here since he spanked
Biff Lemieux in one of the two flstic
cards promoted at the Rialto.
