Isemann Bowling Classic Saturday Winds Up Capital’s Major Stakes Season'
The Sportlight Yank Second-Base Pair Baseball's Best Ever By GRANTLAND RICE, Special Correspondent ol The Star. Joe Gordon and Frankie Crosetti are clicking again—Joe missed some of the earlier exhibition games be cause of a kink in his back muscles— which means that from here on those who see the Yankees play will see once more the best second-base combination baseball ever has known. The best ever? Well, that’s the verdict of a majority of the men in the game now who have been around long enough to have seen some of the great pairs of the past. Get some of them together and pop the question at them. There will be votes for Bobby Lowe and Herman Long of the Bos ton club of the late '90s; for Johnny Evers and Joe Tinker of Chance's immortal Cubs; for Napoleon Lajoie and Cotton-Top Terry Turner of Cleveland: for Eddie Collins and Jack Barry of Connie Mack’s $100,000 infield (worth a million at the cur rent rate of exchange): for Collins and Risberg of the White Sox, and for Frank Frisch and Dave Bancroft, who guarded second base for the Giants when they won pennants Nos. 2 and 3 in that string of four from 1921 through 1924. Skill, Consistency Make Yank Pair Look Best But when the ballots are counted the nod will gc to Gordon and Crosetti on the twin basis of skill and consistency. The other combi nations rolled along from day to day making hard plays look "easy and, now and then, coming up with a seemingly impossible play. The Yankee pair make the seemingly Impossible plays every day—and make them look easy. too. Sport has known few cases of such amazing co-ordination, such perfect blending of thought and motion. Each knows what the other Is going to do in any situation—and Is in the right spot at just the right split second to help him do it. Neither ever has any doubt about the other, and when one of them makes a stop that no one else in the park believed he had even an outside chance to make, the other is waiting to take the ball from him. And the way they hand the ball around when a double play is in making is incredible. Now you see it—and now you don’t—and now the double play is completed. Good Duo at Keystone Great Help to Club Notice that all the great second base combinations mentioned here were parts of great, or at least very good, teams. That isn’t a co incidence. They helped to make those teams stand out. There is an old baseball saying that the strength of a ball club lies .right down the middle—along a line reaching from the catcher to the center fielder, taking in the pitcher, the shortstop and the second base man. (Incidentally how do you like that line through the middle of the Yankees, with Bill Dickey catching, Charley Ruffing pitching, Gordon at second base. Crosetti at shortstop •nd Joe Di Maggio in center field?) I have seen great clubs without a great pair around second base— Tony Lazzeri was a great second baseman with the Yankees of 1927, but Mark Koenig wasn't a great shortstop—and the 1929-30-31 Ath letics, one of the outstanding teams even if it isn’t often mentioned as such, were protected at second base by two of the lesser members of the cast. Max Bishop and Joe Boley. But greatness comes easier to a team when it has a brilliant pair at the middle bag. McCarthy Waits 5 Years For Combination It took Joe McCarthy five years to put together the combinatibn of Gordon and Crosetti. The wait ing seemed long to him and he fidgeted and grumbled sometimes when he saw double plays missed or saw the ball trickle through into the outfield. But while he waited Crosetti was maturing as a big league ballplayer and Gordon was coming up through the minors in 7-league boots—and when Gordon arrived Crosetti was ready for him. Bill Dickey says that the best spot from which to see Gordon and Crosetti at work is his spot just back of the plate. “The ball comes up and it is hit and there doesn't seem a chance for it to be fielded,'1 Bill says, “and then I see one of those birds come up with it and flip it to the other and he flips it to Dahlgren—and another base hit has been turned into a double play. You ought to eee how it looks from where I am." Well, of course, I can't do that. But I'm satisfied just to see it from the press box. It looks pretty good from there, too.

Isemann, executive secretary of the National Duckpin Bowling Congress, will ring down the curtain Saturday on Washington’s major sweepstakes for the season. The sixth annual Isemann classic held in honor of prabably the most valuable man to the duckpin game promises to lure here flocks of the East’s leading maple spillers. With Hugh Crawley of Mount Rainier, where the first 5-game block is to be rolled, and Galt Davis of Rosslyn, host to the howitzers in the wind-up, bending every effort for a big field, last year’s record entry of 71 may be smashed. Four of the five Isemann stake winners have been Capital bowlers. The coming attraction is of par ticular importance to Joe Harrison, defending champion. Twice this season, the Arcadia star has let titles slip away from him. Off his rolling last Sunday in the Brookland Recreation affair, when he finished fourth with an average of 132 for the 10 games, it would appear he's primed for this test, however.

MEMPHIS, Tenn., April 2.—He’s had his share of mobbings and his grayish-thatched head is plenty bottle-scarred, but Harry S. (Steam boat) Johnson goes on umpiring, "calling ’em like I see ’em” and says "I'm still ahead of the ball.” Green fedora perched jauntily on his head, the "Steamer,” as he is known around the Southern Asso ciation where he has been wearing the blue for 20 years, settled back in an easy chair and bellowed in familiar tones that umpiring “is about the toughest racket going, but I like it and wouldn't know what to do without it.” Johnson, nearing 55, is ready to start his 30th season of umpiring in organized baseball. He. served one hitch in the National League. During the more than a quarter century he has been making decisions, the Steamer figures 4,000 pop bottles have been tossed in his general direction. Some 25 of the bottles have found their mark—Steamboat's graying brow, leaving it with more furrows and ridges than a freshly-plowed cornfield. One of the slits, memento of a crucial moment in the Western Association, required 17 stitches. There's a six-stitch scar over his right eye, among others. “I know,” says the Steamer, “how pop bottles sound whistling through the air, and I know how they* sound crashing near you. I know how they look coming straight at you and I know how they feel when they land on your head.” Leather-lunged yahoos who impugn the Steamer’s eyesight are likely to get a certificate—the notorized docu ment signed by an optometrist crammed right down their throats. The certificate—he gets one every year—attests to Johnsons "perfect vision.” Hell flash it on a fan or truculent baseball player at the slightest provocation. Johnson has been mobbed several times for ejecting players. He says j umpires don’t delight in tossing a player out, adding that "we take a lot of abuse because the fans pay their good money to see the players and we hate to kick ’em out.” He added, though, that sometimes “you gotta do it.” The veteran arbiter has called more than 5,000 games. The Steamer got his nickname from his voice, a booming tone that would outcarry the foghorn of a Mississippi River steamboat. “There's less umpire-baiting today than there used to be.” he said. "However, that rough stuff doesnt worry me any. Usually the player just wants to do a bit of grand standing or he's trying to cover up his own blunder. That kinda guy doesn t fight like this (the Steamer balled his fist); he fights with his mouth.” iTlein Still Socks 'Em MIAMI BEACH, Fla., April 2 (/P). —Old Chuck Klein of the Phillies still is a dangerous batter. His most recent effort was a triple with three aboard, which won the intra camp championship for his team yesterday. Hogan and Wood Slated to Play Exhibitions at East Potomac Two of golf’s most capable pro fessional performers are slated to show their wares in exhibition matches at East Potomac Park this month. Negotiations are in progress be tween Tommy Doerer, East Potomac golf promoter, and the manufac turer for whom Benny Hogan' works to bring the long-hitting Texas lad to Washington during April. Craig Wood, the blond belter from Mama roneck, N. Y„ who tied last year for the National Open championship, will be here about the middle of the month to play 18 holes and hit some exhibition shots. Hogan has just won the most impressive string of victories any pro has piled up along the winter circuit since Horton Smith went hog-wild in 1929. The Texan, now registered from a New York club, won the Pinehurst, Greensboro and Asheville tournaments in a row, adding nearly $4,000 to his bank roll and taking first place in the chase for the Vardon Trophy. Doerer says negotiations have not been completed for the appearance of Belting Benny, but he hopes Ben may appear here soon after the Augusta national tourney, which jumps into the spotlight Thursday with the first of four scheduled rounds.

FREDERICK, Md„ April 2 —There still are some trout in Maryland streams today, although some anglers did right well by the finny tribe on the opening day of the season. Benjamin F. Phebus, district game warden here, said “fair luck” was reported by most of the fishermen in this area yesterday. Not a few Congressmen and their friends forgot their official duties for the day and cast their lines in nearby Frederick waters. Among these were Representatives Jones, Democrat, of Texas; Halleck, Re publican, of Indiana; Robert, Demo crat, of Virginia, and Horton, Re publican, of Wyoming, who were guests at the Little Hunt Creek Lodge of Kingman Brewsterm, Washington attorney. Lawrence Richey, secretary to former President Herbert Hoover, had a group of businessmen at his lodge. But it took a Cumberland clerk, Sam H. Dooley, to catch the biggest fish to be reported, a 20 %-inch brown trout. Joseph A. Minke, game warden, said it was "the largest brown trout I ever saw.” Dooley hooked it in Evitt’s Creek. Minke said Allegany County fish ing was “pretty good,” although streams were higher than normal and somewhat muddy. He said the approximately 300 anglers caught between 600 and 700 trout in Allegany County. Garrett County was not so good, with streams high and muddy, he said. Cuban Series Play Wins Job for Card Rookie By the Associated Press. WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., April 2.—Thanks to the series in Cuba. Joe Orengo has just about landed a job with the St. Louis Cardinals.

April 2 — Johnny Vander Meer is the dejected member of the Cincinnati Reds’ pitching staff and Joe Beggs the cheerful one these days. Johnny left yesterday’s tilt with the Red Sox in the second round after giving five runs, six hits and two walks. Beggs, who claims he gets more zip behind the ball by raising up on his toes just before the pitch, an nounces: ‘Tve got my old bounce back.” Rod and Stream By GEORGE HUBER. April S, 1940. For the first time in three years, Maryland angler* had something approaching good weather for the big celebration of trout opening day yesterday. And they took advantage of it. One of the biggest concentra tions—with many anglers from Washington—was in the streams near Frederick. The mountain streams in that area were clear in spite of the rain on sunaay. They were a bit high, but the water was clear enough in most places. The only really cloudy or muddy water was encountered in some of the slower meadow streams. Frank L. Bentz of the State Game and Inland Fish Commission esti mated that about 500 anglers were on Hunting Creek alone at one time or another. That bit of water was the most popular, but other streams were equally as crowded. Naturally with such a crowd the fishing was poor. Most of the trout were sent into hiding by the swarms of anglers, and as far as this depart ment was able to check late yes terday no catches even approaching the creel limit of 10 had been made except perhaps on some of the pri vately owned streams. The few fish that were caught, though, were of fair size, showing the effectiveness of the recent Maryland policy of 'stocking only legal-size fish. All Fish Legal Size. The State, you know, is concen trating this season on planting fish of 7 inches long or better. That’s a change from the policy of a few years back of putting in thousands and thousands of small fry and flngerlings hoping that some of them would live to grow to legal size. Now they put in only legal fish that will be caught the same summer as they are planted. The fairly warm weather was a break and a big differ* ence over the past two seasons. It still was fairly cold up in the mountains, but nothing like two years ago or even last year when it still was freezing when opening day rolled around. New regulations in force this season permiufishing only after 5:30 a.m., and that, too, was a help to anglers. Previously they had to be at those cold streams by mid night of March 30 in order to get room on the water, and getting up that early was a big sacrifice to crea ture comfort. Pishing in the Ca toctin area, where perhaps - the largest crowd in the State gathered, is under a special regulation that permits fishing only after 7:30 a.m. with flies only. The creel limit there is 5 fish per day. After May 1 the starting .time will be moved back to 7 am. ' Walton Convention Here. After the big crowd of yesterday, the visiting fishermen will drop off until by the end of this week you will be able to cast without hitting an angler instead of the water. The crowd, large as it was, was held down somewhat by the rule that doesn't permit/ out-of-State anglers (other than those from Washington) to fish in Maryland trout streams until the trout waters in their own > States open. That means that the boys from Pennsylvania must wait until April 15. Virginia opens on the 20th and West Virginia on the 27th. Members of the Washington Chapter of the Izaak Walton League are rejoicing today in s bit of good news. That Is that the 1941 convention of the national organization will be held here. That will be the first time in about 15 years that the con* vention has been away from Chicago, and it took a lot of doing on the part of De Witt Harry, president of the Regional Council, and other local Walton men attending last week's convention. Prom that it might be only a step to getting the national headquarters set up here, and that’s an objective to which the boys have been pointing all along. Hagerty and Bergman To Hustle Gridmen In Spring Drills Jack Hagertv, at Georgetown, and “Dutch” Bergman, at Catholic Uni versity, planned to move right into advanced football work today as their squads dug in for a month's siege of spring training. The players reported yesterday for their initial workout. Reserves, with a capital R, are Bergmans chief worry. He lost everybody but “Pod'’ Cotton by graduation and with only 12 fresh men coming up from last years yearling squad will be hard put to find replacements. Most of the vacancies are in the line, where A1 Calabrese, Art Sabo, Carmen Pirro and other stalwarts performed. Hagerty needs a couple of good ends and a fullback. He has some good wingmen and Jim Castiglia at full, but needs others to guard against injuries and a hundred other problems that crop up over night. Collegiates Win, 55-52, Over Virginia Union Recreation Collegiates were being held in a bit more respect in local colored basket ball circles today, fol lowing their 55-52 victory over Vir ginia Union's C. I. A. A. champions last night at Banneker. More than 1.000 fans saw Sidat Singh. former Syracuse star, pact the Collegiates with 19 points, al though Glover, a guard, scored 30 for the losers. The visitors held a half-time lead of 27-26, but the Collegiates went ahead to stay at 47-45. American U. Netmen Helpless Before Fast Cornell Team Despite not having practiced out doors this season, Cornell's tennis team gave American University's net forces a thorough going-over yester day on the Columbia Country Club courts. The Big Red not only won. 9-0. but made the rout complete by taking every match in straight sets.
