Maryland’s Ball Battle With Vermont Opens D. C. College Season
WEIDINGER, GRID HURLER, MERELY CHANGES WEAPON Terps Also Down for Track and Lacrosse This Week—Moran Completes Hoya Nine. G. U. and G. W. Scrimmage. By BILL DISMER, Jr. Charley Weidinger, who threw a football with more than fair success fot the University of Maryland last fall, will throw another kind of ball to Ver mont’s lead-off man at 4 o’clock tomorrow afternoon at College Park, and the spring sports season for local colleges will be on. Weidinger's pitch not only will open the first baseball game of the season hereabout, but also will inaugurate a busy three-day stretch for Old Line ath letes, who will take part in another*!* baseball game, a lacross game and a track meet before nightfall Wednesday. The Terp nine is scheduled to play its second game in as many days when it tackles Ohio State on Tuesday, the same afternoon on which Maryland's lacross team will open its season against Swarthmore. On Wednesday the Old Line track team will play hast to Michigan State. Although Weidinger will open fire for Maryland, he will be only one of three who will see slab duty tomorrow and one of six moundsmen to be used by Coach Burton Shipley in the next two days. Because he will not work any pitcher more than three innings at this stage of the season, "Ship" plans to follow' Weidinger with Earl Springer, southpaw freshman ace last year, and Bill Steiner, another 1937 regular. Crisafull and Boyda Catch. Tuesday, he will send George Wood, I Bill Silverman and Karl Ruble—all on last year’s squad—to the mound in that order. Joe Crisafull. Roosevelt High prod uct, and John Boyda, a soph, will di vide the catching in each game, with the possibility that Bob Bums may work an inning or two behind the bat. The rest of the team will line up and come to bat in the following order: Shorty Chumbris, shortstop; George Knepley, first; Waverly Wheeler, third; Bill Bryant, center; Mike Surgent, left; Eddie Johnson, second and Lefty Chumbris, right. Each was a regular last year and with the exception of Surgent and Johnson, who exchanged positions, each played the same post in 37. Lacrosse Line-up Named. Only four veterans will be in the la crosse team which takes the field against Swarthmore. Jim Meade, sec ond defense; Parker Lindsay, center: George Watson, first attack, and Rip Hewitt, second attack, will be the vets who will be surrounded by reserves and newcomers. Coach Jack Faber announced the rest of his starting line-up last night as follows: Haskin Deeley, goal; Bill Wolfe, point: Bill Graham, cover point; Milton Mulitz, first defense; Bill Bond, first attack, and Bill Groff, out home. Deeley and Groff played enough last spring to earn their let ters and Wolfe was a reserve in 1936, but out last season with an injured knee. Mulitz is taking his first crack at lacrosse, while Bond was on the 1937 frosh team. Maryland's track hopes against Michigan State, noted for its distance men, are only fair, but Coach Geary Eppley believes he has uncovered something he needed badly—a sprinter. Kenneth Barnes is the boy who may be the answer to Eppley's prayer. He Is from Sykesville, Md. Trartesters Should Thrill. There should be some stirring com petition in the track meet, especially in the running events, as both the Spartans and Terps will present out standing performers. Michigan State's leaders are Wil bur Greer, an unbeaten sprinter, and Harvey Woodstra, a hurdler, who has tied the world indoor record of 7.4 seconds for the 60-yard highs. The Spartans also have a 13-foot pole vaulter in Lodo Habrle, a 2-miler who has done 9:34 without being pressed in Capt. Kenneth Waite and a clever miler in Rudolph Lautenschlager. Frank Cronin, who is slated for the 100, 200 and pole vault; Alan Miller in the furlong and 440, Bill Thies in the quarter. Coleman Headley in the half, Jim Kehoe and Joe Peaslee in the 2 mile and Edwin Miller in the high jump are Terps who will be tough for the Spartans. Kehoe should press Waite, and Lau tenschlager will have a difficult job to conquer Chronister. Headley Still Fleet. The meet will mark the return of Headley to competition, as he was out of action last year on account of ill ness. The veteran middle distancer, who will be competing in his last season of sport for the Terps, breezed a mile the other day in practice in 4:27. In addition to the regular 14 events there will be a mile relay, in which Thies, Chronister, Alan Miller and Cronin will run for Maryland. The Terp four, which won the Southern Conference title, was not beaten in four indoor races. Moran Completes Hoya Nine. The son of an ex-big leaguer, who became Catholic University's athletic director after playing shortstop for Pittsburgh and Washington, has plugged the only hole on Georgetown's 1938 baseball team. He is Charley Moran's son, Joe, a sophomore at the Hilltop whom Coach Joe Judge sent to second base yester day in his squad’s first practice game of the season. Young Moran, a smooth fielder and better-than-fair hitter, already has clinched the keystone position despite the fact that G. U.’s first game, against Vermont, is not scheduled until a week from tomorrow. According to Judge, the old-timer's offspring has shown enough of his dad’s former ability to outplay any other candidate for the one spot on the G. U. team which is not occupied by one of last year’s regulars. Were it not for the all-around classiness of Harry Bassin's game at first, another sophomore might have broken into the varsity line-up this season. For another Joe. Mahoney, a local product, has been flashing fine form at the initial sack in practice and might have ousted any other man but Bassin. Mahoney, standing well over 6 feet, doubtless will give the Hoyas a worthy successor to Bassin Who graduates this June. Gridders Share Attention. Although the Hoya nine, under Judge, has attracted a considerable number of onlookers at its dally work out, it was shunned partially Fri day by many who found a counter attraction within a stone’s throw. That magnet was a scrimmage be tween the football squads of George town and George Washington who mixed it up on the lower Hilltop field. It was the second time in three days that the Colonials had scrimmaged a different local rival, having practiced with Maryland on Wednesday. As in the G. W.-Maryland session, no effort was made to keep track of even so much as the number of yards gained by either team, Coaches Jack Hagerty and Bill Reinhart looking for individual flaws rather than team supremacy. Bob Nowaskey and Prank Merka, G. W. backs, came out of the session with a broken nose and dislocated shoulder, respectively. More than 200 spectators enjoyed the two-ring circus provided by the scrim mages between the respective first teams and the second-stringers. Shipley Loses Assistant. Maryland lost more than a prospec tive all-around varsity athlete when Charley Norton signed that Boston Red Sox contract. Norton, though in eligible, had been helping Coach Burt Shipley no little in preparing his team this spring. Probably possessing as much—if not more—stuff than any pitcher on the squad, Norton had been hurling sev eral innings for both sides in daily practice games, giving the Terps a look at a varied assortment. Instead of reporting to the Heurich baseball team, as he was planning to do before he signed with the Bosox, Norton now will go to the Rocky Mount <N. C.) team of the Piedmont League, a Bos ton farm. GIRLS IN COURT TILT Georgetown Team Will Oppose Cumberland Lassies. Georgetown Girls’ Club basketers will oppose the Business Girls’ sextet of Cumberland, Md., at 3:30 this aft ernoon on the Takoma Fire Depart ment court. The Maryland lassies have not lost a game in four years, but the local outfit is given a better than average chance of turning the trick in light of its sensational showing this year in winning the District champion ship. --—•— FOUR SPLIT HONORS IN TRAPS TOURNEY Parsons, K.

George Diffenbaugh, for the last 10 years golf professional at the Indian Spring Country Club, last night announced his resignation, effective April 10, to accept a sim ilar post at the Roanoke (Va.) Country Club. His going to the Virginia club of some 600 members removes not only one of the District’s most popular pros but also one of its oldest—in point of service. Only three others exceed his tenure in local circles. Standing only 5 feet 4 and weigh ing 135 pounds, Diffenbaugh takes to Roanoke the reputation of driv ing as long a ball, pound for pound, as any man in the country. His all-around game earned him the Middle Atlantic championship, which he currently holds, and brought him the District open championship for two successive years. In instruction, the likable little mentor seemed just as gifted as he was in playing, for he developed three District champions in the last three years. Under his guid ance Roger Peacock captured the District title in 1935, Robert Brownell won it in 1936 and Betty Meckley won the women’s crown last year. Brownell also won the Middle Atlantic championship two years in a row and Mrs. Meckley captured the same sectional title last year. One of Diffenbaugh’s pupils the last two years has been Joe Cronin, Boston Red Sox manager. Cronin, a daily player at Indian Spring with his father-in-law, Clark Grif fith, during his off-season, credits Dilfenbaugh with cutting his score from the 100’s to the low 80’s. Now president of the Middle At lantic P. G. A.. Diffenbaugh once qualified for the National Open and again for the national P. G. A., but he remembers with greatest pride a record which he and Munro Hunter hung up in 1931-2. That was the period in which he and Hunter were undefeated in a single exhibition match with many of the country’s outstanding pros, num bering among their victims George Von Kim and Billy Burke and play ing a tie with Audrey Boomer and Archie Compton, then an ace Brit ish combination. Diffenbaugh came to Indian Spring in 1927 from the Saranao Inn course at Saranac Lake, where he, spent the 1926-7 seasons. He had spent a year with a Washington ciub in 1924, whence he came from his first pro assignment with the Baltimore Country Club. No Intimation of his successor at Indian Spring has been given. _ Mrs. Coe Women’s Leader in Potomac Event—Meet Winds Up Today. George Deyoe of the National Capi tal Sheet Club yesterday won the feature .410 event at the annual Potomac open skf>et championships. He defeated R. Watson, 24-19, in a 25-target shoot-off after they had tied with 45s in the regular 50-target event. In the women's division, Mrs. Wil liam C. Coe shot a perfect score in a 25-target shoot-off after she and Mrs. Florence Walker both shot 48s in the 50-target tilt. Mrs. Walker, who was the Nation's outstanding woman skeet shot in 1937, got 23 hits in the shoot-off. Richard E. Stuart, sr.. had high gun in the .20-gauge event with 98-100, V. A. Frank was runner-up with 95, and George Deyoe third with 94. Beginning at 11 o'clock this morn ing. the all-bore and team events will be fired. Prizes will be awarded to winner and runner-up in each of four classes. -• ■ , ■ — CAPITAL T IS VICTOR Wins Gym Meet With Baltimore and Wilmington Teams. Special Dispatch to The Star. BALTIMORE.

How interesting history would be if more of it. at least for juvenile con sumption, were written from the view point of the little, human causes. How’ I struggled to memorize what the war between the Guelphs and the Ghibel lines was all about, and it is only re cently that I learned. It all started because a certain Mr. Guelpho, upon returning from a hunt with his friend, Mr. Ghibellino, was tactless enough to make some deroga tory remarks about Ghibellino's hound. Being in the usual state natural at or shortly after hunt breakfasts, Ghi bellino was in a mood to take the re mark to heart. The quarrel waxed hotter and spread not only to each man's retainers, but to his friends and associates, and finally embroiled Emperor Frederick the First and Pope Honorious II. And all because of a hound! A statement made in this column recently that a dog may be kept en tirely free from fleas has been chal lenged by the owner of a dog that seems to be a special haven for fleas winter and summer. Keeping a dog flea-free is simple, but entails work. First, if the dog is kept in the house and allowed on the furniture, all the furniture and rugs "have to be vac uumed regularly and often to rid them of their quota of fleas and eggs. If they are badly infested, and often they are, whether the housekeeper re alizes it or not, it is a wise precaution to sprinkle flea powder in all the cracks and corners and on the rugs and leave it on for a few days, and then vacuum regularly. The dog itself should be dipped in a solution of creo lin, immersing the body and keeping it immersed a minute or so, then quickly dipping the head. The creolin should not be rinsed off, but allowed to dry on the dog. While he still is damp he should be thoroughly combed with a steel flea comb, obtainable at the better pet stores. This comb must be fine. This procedure should be followed weekly for at least three weeks, by which time both fleas and eggs should be elimi nated. In making the creolin solution, directions on the bottle must be fol lowed for proper strength of the solu tion. Thereafter, the dog should be dusted lightly but regularly, once a week, with a good grade of flea powder that is particularly strong in derris root. If these directions are followed ex actly. the fleas will be entirely elimi nated. The Monumental City Kennel Club is holding its first show today from noon to 10 tonight at the Richmond Armory in Baltimore. This show is just for toy breeds, and has entries in many of the unusual varieties of toy dogs. Mrs. E. W. Miller of River ton, N. J„ is judging Japanese spaniels, Papillons and Pekingese. Mrs. F. Y. Mathis of Greenwich, Conn., is Judg ing all other breeds and best in show. Proceeds are for the Carroll Mansion Recreational Center. The April calendar of dog shows is very crowded all over the country. In this section there is a very well dened circuit, which follows the spring north, culminating in Washing ton and Pikesville.

Johnny Scibelli, a French-Italian bantamweight, whose chief claim to fame has been snatched in losing bouts to credited clouters, will clash with Joey Archibald, favorite of local ringworms, in a 10-round bout tomor row night at Turner's Arena, and the odds favor Schibelli's negative streak being extended. Unknown here, Scibelli is a former New England bantamweight champion, a title held by Archibald five years ago. After turning professional three years ago, Johnny confined most of his fighting to Holyoke and North Adams, Mass., and although he and Joey are from the same sector they never have met. Archibald After Escobar. Archibald, who has become increas ingly popular here after making his debut at the Arena less than a year ago in a $75 preliminary, only to grasp nearly $2,000 four months later for kayoing Lou Gevinson at Griffith Stadium, now is being primed for a crack at Sixto Excobar, world bantam weight champion. Matchmaker Goldie Aheam is confi dent of staging the scrap at Griffith [ Stadium In June, and if the bout is signed this week, as expected, will allow Joey to rest until his big test. Archy has performed nine times before local customers and on each occasion has come out on top. He will be seek ing his tenth consecutive win here at Scibelli's expense. Achibald. who has operated against featherweights almost exclusively, meets in Scibelli a legitimate ban tamweight who may give him trouble if Joey delays getting started as did against Johnny Mirabelia in his last appearance here. Joey twice was floored in that argument before clip ping Johnny in the ninth round. Kanner in Semi-Final. Swinging in a six-round semi-final will be Murray Kanner. the local heavyweight, who was kayoed by Buck Everett in his last start, and Nick Rabin, a former coal miner from Allentown. Pa.

ME. 1230 M’SPADEN, SNEAD PACE M GOLF Each Shoots Subpar 66 at Greensboro—Revolta Also Shatters Record. By the Assoclsted Press. GREENSBORO, N. C , March 26 — Harold (Jug) McSpaden of Winches ter, Mass., and Sammy Snead of White Sulphur Springs, W. Va, shot subpar rounds of 66 today to hop into the lead in the first round of the $5,000 Greater Greensboro Golf Tournament. The record for the Starmount course, over which the first two rounds of the meet are being played, was cracked twice today as the cream of the Nation’s golfing talent bore down on the tricky traps and greens. Monday’s 36-hole final will be fought out over the Valley Brook course at the Sedgefield Country Club. Before McSpaden. runner-up in the 1937 P, G. A. Tournament, and the long-hitting Snead posted their sizzling rounds, Johnny Revolta had come in with a 68 to better by one stroke the record set in 1932 by Henry Picard in beating the veteran Walter Hagen in the play-off for the Carolinas open championship. Snead's Golf Best of Bay. Snead's performance was tops for the day. After touring the first round of the course in one over par, he got down to business and made the iast nine in six under. He picked up one birdie on the out, nine and five on the route home. The day's disappointment was Victor Ghezzi of Deal, N. J„ winner of the North and South Open at Pinehurst yesterday and a red-hot favorite. He bogged down from the sensational pace he set in the Sandhills meet and the best he could do today was a 75, which left him far back in the field. Revolta’s well-shot 68 put him in a threatening position for tomorrow's second round. Two strokes behind him came Bill Heinlein of Indianapolis, Leo Mallory of Wee Burn, Conn., and Johnny Bulla, a former High Point, N. C., amateur now playing out of Chicago. Cooper, Smith Get 71’s. Harry Cooper, the Chicopee. Mass., stylist, and Horton Smith of Chicago were in the next bracket with 71's and behind them were grouped Maurice Walsh of Scarsdale, N. Y.; George Slingerland. Greensboro pro fessional; Denny Shute, the P. G. A. champion, now playing out of West Newton, Mass.; Tony Penna of Dayton, Ohio; Ky Laffoon of Chicago, Henrv Picard of Hershey, Pa.; Ralph Guldahl of Chicago. Paul Runyan of White Plains. N. Y.. and Tony Manero of Peabody, Mass., former open cham pion. SEMI-PRO DIAMOND LEADERS SELECTED Commissioners Will Supervise Play-Offs in 768 Districts Among 25.000 Clubs. By the Associated Press.
