• Louis, Schmeling Promise Best Mill Since Dempsey-Firpo Melee
Bout Will Break Monotony
of Heavy Title Series
Smacking of Cheese.
By JOHN LARDNER.
NEW YORK, April 30.—For $30 you
can have a ringside seat at the best
heavyweight fight since the Dempsey
Firpo thing. For considerably less
money ($0.00 Mex., to be exact) you
can stay away entirely, and that’s
what millions of people will do. because
$30 Is a lot of parsley in these times,
or any others.
But it will be a great fight just the
same, even by radio—provided that
Uncle Clement McCarthy does not
get five rounds ahead of his story, and
Graham McNamee does not swoon
dead away, and Theodore Husing does
not say. ' Believe you me." and Sam
Taub does not trip over a pile of
Strangled syntax and sprain his ankle.
Michel St. Gaudens Jacobs, insti
gator of more quarrels than a Balkan
prime minister, has announced the
price list for the second Louis-Schme
ling fight, Yankee Stadium, New York.
June 22—$30 the top price. $5.75 the
bottom, not to speak of sundry splendid
bleacher seats, believed to be early
Chippendale, from which you can get
a clear view of the eclipse of the moon,
If there is one.
Some Fuzzy Heavy Fights.
This fight should be great because
the heavyweight championship of the
world is at stake, beeause there i$ a
strong mutual dislike between the
fighters, because both can punch and
both rely on punching for success and
because the first performance of the
same show was terrific.
It's no lavish compliment to call it
the best match since Dempsey and
Firpo. 15 years ago. Most heavyweight
fights in the interval have been dreary,
clownish or cheese-flavored.
Remember these?—
Dempsey-Gibbons — The original
pursuit race, with the chivalry of
Shelby, Mont., bringing its own am
munition to the ringside. There were
more guns in the first five rows than
there were in the whole of Lee's army.
I Mr. Dempsey did not seem to have
his mind on his work.
Dempsey-Tunney—There were two
of these, and the second one had its
points, but ballyhoo and $3,000,000 in
the box office made it seem a belter
fight than it was.
Dempsey-Sharkey—The reticent tar
from Boston was winning this one
handily when he paused in the seventh
round to discuss ethics with the ref
eree. They never did settle their point,
because Mr. Sharkey became uncon
scious almost at once.
Tunney-Heenev—A routine job of
slaughterhouse work on whicn 'every
body lost dough but Mr. Tunney.
Stribling-McTigue—The decision on
this one changed three times as the
referee's train moved North. It was
Striblmg's victory in the deep South,
but a draw when the official reached
the Mason-Dixon line, and a turkey
any way you look at it.
Sharkey-Schmeling—The German
won the title in the first of these by
clutching his thigh on the canvas,
while Joseph Jacobs screamed "Stav
down!" The Lithuanian won it baric
the second time by a decision which
left him speechless, while Joseph
Jacobs screamed. "We was robbed'"
Sharkey-Carnera — Mr. Sharkey
crumbled beneath a savage invisible
punch In the sixth round, but he won
a moral victory by outstaring his op
ponent from the floor. Primo winced
j unc!pr the baleful glare of the sailor
delivered horizontally at an angle of
70 degrees.
Baer-Camera—There was action in
this one. but only when Baer could
catch his breath. Between spurts he
would go to a neutral corner and pant,
while Primo waited at a respectful
distance.
men tnere were the Louis fights.
Some were bad—Farr, Brown, Levin
aky, Pastor. Some—Camera, Shar
key. Braddock, Baer, Mann—were ex
citing ,spactacles, because any punch
er of Louis’ swift and deadly power is
good to watch when his shots arc
landing But the greatest of all Louis
fights was the one he lost, to Schme
ling, and thats the fight they'll repeat
in June.
Louis Has Xew Plans.
I don t mean that they'll repeat it
from the original scenario. Joe has
other plans, and the public has so
much faith in those plans, rightly or
wrongly, that the betting Is even. By
ring time there is a good chance that
the Bomber will be the favorite in
spite of the fart that he was out
smarted and outfought by this same
Uhlan two years ago and got the tan
ning of his life. /
Mr. Joseph Jacobs, the polo player
and fighters' agent, known to the
Newport set as “Laddie’’ Jacobs, em
powers me to report that Schmeling
will sail from Germany on the 3d day
of May. He will repair to French
Lick Springs, Ind., for a short whirl
at the waters, and then he will go into
solemn training in the chilly mountain
country at Speculator, N. Y.
Speculator is an ominous choice.
Max Baer trained there for Louis,
, spending most of his time on his
knees In prayer, which did him no
good in the end, except to teach him
^ to stay on his knees. But Mr. Joseph
Jacobs is unabashed by precedent.
•‘Forget, it,” says Joe. “Superstition
Is the coise of the upper middle
class.”

End Second Week of City
Title Bowling—Ordnance
Team Scores High.
Bowlers of the Convention Hall Sat
urday Niters’ loop will taper off the
second week of maple pounding in the
Washington City Duckpin Association
tournament tonight at Convention
Hall with competition mostly in the
duffer classes that so far during the
twenty-eighth annual championships
have been the most spectacular.
Last night's rolling failed to pro
duce a new leader when the Bureau
of Ordnance bowlers, shooting the
high team set of 1,716, gained a tie
for fourth place in Class C. What
an opportunity Ordnance missed to
crack things wide open. With 611
and 581 for its first two games, a 524
popped up.
Navy Team Tops Doubles.
High doubles of the night also went
to the Navy Department League
shooters when Jack Walton, who had
led the Ordnance team’s attack with
366, shot 370 for his doubles effort
to give him and his partner. J. J.
Hohman, fourth place in Class C with
709.
Two Almas Temple shooters, Lou
Rose and Doc Holmes, moved to fifth
place in Class B doubles with 695. Rose
shot 372. Bill Daudt of Takoma Park
and Jack Gooding of the Mount Rain
ier loop, are holding seventh place in
Class C by virtue of their 697. Good
ing's 385 was the top three-game set
of the night. L. Carrigan and J. Wen
zer gained sixth place in Class D
doubles with 690.
Clarence Purdy, rolling 362 in Class
C. was high singles shooter among
the few that rolled.
More National Prises.
George L. Isemann still is dishing
out dough for winning efforts in the
recent National Duckpin Bowling
Congress tournament staged at Rich
mond. Today he announced an ad
ditional prize list of *237.51 that in
creases the original total to *6,183.11
and with *836 for the mixed doubles
and John Dennis events, a grand total
of *7.019.11 is to be distributed for
the biggest prize list in the 11-year
history of the congress.
Metropolitan Washington bowlers
will come in for quite a slice, with .
Frank Mischou receiving *5 and Bob
Temple *1 in the all-events. Howard
Parsons. Perce Wolfe, Harry Hilliard.
A1 Wright and Chester Lindstrom will
receive *5 each for singles.
Joe Freschi and Perce Ellett will
split a *3 doubles prize, as will A.
Duvall and H. Hiser of Bethesda. The
Seal Test team of the Chestnut Farms
Dairy League gets a *10 booster team
prize. Margie Smith, Lucy Rose and
Georgia Hays get *1 each for singles.

Although out-hit, 7-13, National
Training School's nine defeated Jef
ferson High, 9-7, yesterday at Fails
Church. Jefferson got all the extra
base hits, including two doubles, a
triple and two home runs, but a four

High School Baseball's Doom
Is Seen in Unbalanced Loop's
Failure to Attract Support
With the public high school baseball :
championship virtually hinging on the
outcome. Western and Eastern clubs
will clash Friday at Eastern Stadium !
and with the aeries less than half!
played at that point, interhigh base- j
ball here appears doomed.
Never a self-supporting sport in the
public schools, baseball may be aban
doned unless the current race is in
triguing enough to entice more spec
tators, and the early Eastern-Western j
climax hardly will serve that purpose, i
Western and Eastern are the only un
defeated teams in the series, both hav- i
ing captured two games.
Scholastic officials for some time
now have been struggling to make
ends meet through the medium of one
sport carrying another, but decreasing
football and basket ball gates, any sur
plus from which previously was em
ployed to defray expenses in other
sports, may force them to clip baseball
from the curricula.
Students apparently aren't inter
ested sufficiently to journey from Ana
costia to Western or from Wilson to
Eastern, or vice versa, to witness base
ball which seldom is satisfactory from
a baseball standpoint.
Big Nines Unimpressive.
Since they still are paying off on
runs instead of hits, both Western
and Eastern move into their most
important game with unblemished rec
ords. but yesterday neither was im
pressive. Eastern, outhit, 8 to 7, cap
tured a 9-5 decision over Wilson
through the aid of 10 walks, while
Western, outsmacked, 11-10. trimmed
Anacostia, 10-8. by capitalizing on
six Anacostia miscues.
A1 Kidwell's home run, tainted be
cause Left Fielder Dave Maloney slip
ped on the sloppy turf and converted
a single or double into a circuit blow,
turned the decision to Eastern, stak
ing the Lincoln Parkers to a 6-3 lead
as Paul Kober and Walter Stockwell
scored in front of him.

SHINE AT FAIRFAX
Three Firsts, Four Seconds
Earned—Mickel Scores
for Whitney Stable.
Mrs. John Hay Whitney's 5-year
old Mirkel, laid up last year with
a broken leg, was well on his way
to stealing the show in the Fairfax
Hunt Club competition today as the
result of impressive opening day per
formances.
The large bay. a green hunter, won
the model hunter class, shown in
hand; grabbed another first place in
the hunter's hacks event and snatched
second place in competition among
green hunters.
Whitney, Randle Entries Star.
Mrs. Whitley's stable shared honors
with U. S. Randle entries, with the
latter taking three firsts and four
seconds. Sport Marvel, who captured
the blue ribbon for qualified working
hunters, performed handsomely with
Gwen Rogers up in the hunt team
event.
The *100 stake class was won by
Billy Do, Capt. Luebbermann’s ex
perienced fencer, in a rather easy
victory over an intricate course, with
Randle's Way taking second and
Magic tadv third.

Straight Off the Tee
They call him “Trolley Wire” In the caddy pen at Chevy Chase, and If
there’s a man hitting a straighter wood or iron shot among the amateurs
around the Capital we have yet to see him. Caddies usually have the right
slant on the golfers whose bags they tote around your golf course, and they
didn’t name John F. Brawner “Trolley Wire” for nothing. Trolley wires
usually run in straight lines, or the engineers like to have 'em straight, and
even a trolley engineer would delight in seeing the way John Brawner hits
a golf ball. They gave him that name because he hits that ball on the line
for the pin. It will give you an idea of how accurate he is when we tell
you that he hit two pins yesterday
with Iron shots from 150 and more
yards away. In one case the ball
bounced back 10 feet and he holed the
putt. In the other It bounced back
4 feet and he missed. But "Trolley
Wire" doesn't often miss 4-footerg.
John Brawner will be one of the top
entrants and one of the main gents
to lick In that coming Chevy Chase
tournament.
He literally ties ’em on a
string, he’s that straight with
his shots.
John has been a good golfer for a
good many years, but you don't hear
much about him because he’s a work
ing man and doesn’t have a lot of
time to play. The other day he shot
a 69 in the French High Commission
Cup tournament, which will give you
an idea. He was licked by Col. E. A.
Hickman, but the 69 still stands. It
happens to be par for the Chevy Chase
course, and when a guy shoots par
and is licked there isn’t much you
can do about it.
The point is that Johnny Brawner
Is going to be a tough hombre to lick
in the Chevy Chase tourney if he can
get over the first four or five holes
without being too far down. Like
! most business men John rushes out
to the course with a lot of things on
| his mind and for the first few holes
he is off his stride. But then t\e
settles down and really hits that ball.
He and Bob Barnett did a fairly good
Job of teaming up yesterday to score
i a better ball of 67, and John almost
knocked the pin out of the cup at the
tenth and fifteenth holes. “Trolley
Wire’’ will not be among the favorites
at Chevy Chase, but he can win. Any
golfing gent who hits the ball so
straight is hard to lick.
Ace Made by C. M. Dick.
But C. Matthews Dick, who doesn’t
figure among the better golfers at
Chevy Chase, is even stralghter. Dick
scored the first, ace of his career on
the 145-yard tenth hole yesterday. He
played the shot with a 5 iron.
Two matches were completed in tl\e
French High Commission Cup tourney.
Robert Stead, jr„ golf chairman, beat
James P. Nolan 2 up. and Gen. F. W.
Coleman beat Franklin L. Fisher 3
and 1.
Georgetown Prep's fast-traveling
golf team, now leading the scholastic
league, with six victories and nary a
loss, will meet a major test tomorrow
when they take on Scotty Ross and
his lads from Bethesda-Chevy Chase
School. Georgetown tucked away an
other win yesterday, whitewashing the
Montgomery-Blair outfit, 9 to 0. Gon
zaga, second in the team standings
with five straight wins, won a 9-to-0
decision over the lowly Anacostia team
at Washington. Buddy Sharkey, In
dian Spring champ, and No. 1 on the
Purple team, scored a subpar 69 de
spite a 6 on the fourth hole, a par 4
affair.
In other matches Central whipped
Tech, 6 to 3. at Army-NaVy: Roosevelt
won a 6-to-3 decision over Western at
Columbia and Wilson licked Devitt at
Congressional, 9 to 0, Devitt defaulting
the last two points.
J. F. McCarron Scores 72.
John F. McCarron, kndwn to Con
gressional habitues as '•All-Weather
Jack,” has his chest out today follow
ing a level par round of 72 over his
home course. It was the best round
of his links career, and Bill Ullman
and Bill Hughes, his golfing pals, al
ready are dickering for bigger and
better handicaps.
I _
Feminine golfers at three clubs held
their opening tournaments yesterday.
Mrs. W. R. Bush topped a large field
at Congressional. Other victors were
Mrs. V. A. Welte, Mrs. George Goetz

AT DRAKEGAMES
Wolcott in Hurdles, Fenske
:
in 1,000 Great Record
Threats Today.
By L. E. SHELLEY.
Associated Press Sports Writer.
DES MOINES. Iowa. April 30.—
One of the best fields in the 29-year
i history of the Drake relays, its pride
I gorged with four new marks and a
j tie for a fifth, went to its marks today
in search for more time and distance
i conquests.
Major attention was concentrated
on tow-headed Fred Wolcott, the Rice
Institute busybody who Middle West
ern track and field fans expected to
crack wide-open the Drake record of
0:14 4 for the 12n-vard high hurdles.
Wolcott, the sophomore sensation of
the Rice squad, equaled the record
with a nonchalant performance in
■ yesterday's preliminaries. Today, with
the chips down in the final, the Rice
flyer was due for a record-smashing
performance.
Sharing interest with the blond
speedboy as the top-flight entertain
ment in the second day of the carnival
were two special events—a 1,000-yard
run, featuring Archie San Romani
and Charles Fenske, and a 440-yard
dash, boasting an all-star cast.
Track fans awaited the San Romani
Fenske duel with added suspense fol
lowing the latter's great performance
yesterday when he ran a 4:10.5 mile,
fastest ever run on the Drake track,
to lead his Wisconsin mates to a new
record of 10:06.1 in the university
distance medley.
It was Wolcott, however, who stole
the individual honors on opening day.
After whipping over the hurdles in
record-tying style, he came back for
work in three more events. He earned
a qualifying position in the 100-yard
dash final, helped Rice shoot into the
final of the 440-yard university relay
and played a prominent part in Rice's
3:25.3 race in the sprint medley final,
a mark which, for an hour at least,
stood as a new’ American record.
The college sprint medley and the
preliminaries of the 440-yard relay
produced the other new records.
Team Blaine Rideout Paces
Bidding for Indiana’s
Distance Crown.
By BILL BONI.
Associated Press Sport• Writer.
PHILADELPHIA. April 30—In
diana. kingpin of the distance events
in last year's Penn relay carnival, stood
in grave danger of being dethroned
completely by North Texas State
Teachers’ College today as the two
day track and field program went into
its final stage on the fast Franklin
Field oval.
The 1937 Hoosiers, with Don lash
as their sparkplug, won the distance
; medley and four-mile relay titles and
' set records in both events. Already
they have lost the medley crown to the
boys from Denton, Tex., who set a new
mark of 9:59.4, and those same lads
look their strongest threat in this
afternoon's 4-mile race, one of seven
relay championships to be decided.
In the others Indiana defends the
half-mile title, Manhattan the mile
and 2-mile honors, Cornell the 480
yard shuttle hurdle title, North Texas
the class B mile title and Western
Teachers’ College of Michigan the
Teachers’ College mile title.
Blaine Rideout Star*.
Where Lash was the power that put
Indiana on the distance throne. Blaine
Rideout, the better half of the famous
twin combine, is the North Texas
mainspring. In the mile anchor leg of
yesterday’s medley, Blaine breezed
home the winner by 70 yards in time
that was caught all the way from
4:09.6 to 4:10.6.
1 The latter was the official figure
and even that puts the bespectacled,
21-year-old sophomore on the fringa
of the charmed circle of runners who
' have done the mile In 4:10 or better.
Coach Charles (Choc) Sportsman is
confident his prize pupil will move
right into the circle before his college
career is over, and as evidence points
to the fact that Blaine has come down
from 4:15 to 4:10 In this one season.
Supporting Blaine as the Texans go
after Indiana and its world record of
17:16 1 are brother Wayne, who has
run the half-mile in 1:54 and the 2
mile in 9:03 5; Henry Morgan, who
ran a second-place 4:18 to Blaine’s
4:11 8 in a dual meet with Oklahoma
A. and M, and Jack Sahling, who
turned In 4:23 at the Kansas relays.
Browns Miss in 440.
The two main things worrying
Sportsman are his own belief that
Indiana consistently turns out the
best distance runners in the country
and the fact that his Rideouts may be
tired after their winning effort yester
day. But at least he already ha* had
satisfaction for the failure of Elmer
and Delmer Brown in defense of the
quarter-mile title. With Elmer not in
good shape, they were shut out In a
heat before Ben Johnson led Columbia
to victory in 41.8 seconds.
In the other relays on the opening
card. Pitt retained its sprint medley
title in record time of 3:24 5, largely an
long John Woodruff's anchor 880, and
Seton Hall of New' Jersey and Over
brook of Philadelphia set new stand
ards in the prep school and high school
medleys respectively.
Meet records also were lowered In
the shot-put by National Champion
Francis Ryan of Columbia and In the
discus by Bill Faymonville of Notre
Dame.
Other Events Today.
Beside* today’* title relays, the flna!
I program included Glenn Cunning
| ham's appearance In a special mils
! against Gene Venzke and Ernie Fed
eroff, with Lash and Joe McCluskey as
possible starters, and a Lash-McClus
key 3.000-meter duel.
Also billed were an invitation 100
yard dash, bringing together Johnson
and Herb Weast of Calumbia, Easton
i Burlingame and Nicholas Kerr of Yale
| and Marty Olickman of Syracuse, and
the pole vault, high and broad jump,
hammer throw and javelin throw.
CARDINALS WIN TWO.
The Cardinal A. C. insects won two
ball games yesterday, downing the
Michigan Park Orioles. 13-*, and then
turning in a 13-2 victory’ over Smith
Pharmacy.
Today a year ago—United States
took two Davis Cup matches from
Japan as Don Budge beat Fumiteru
Nakano and Frank Parker defeat
ed Jiro Yamagishi.
