Golfers Tipped to Anticipate Golf Needs for 1942 as Defense Takes Steel
From the Press Box Two Boxing Titles Eyed By California's Wilson By JOHN LARDNER. Special Correspondent of The Star. NEW YORK. Aug. 2 (N.A.N.A.1.— An artist with his hands in more ways than one is California's latest fighting pride, name of Jackie Wil son, colored. Wilson is good enough with' pen or pencil and paper to make a living as a cartoonist, which he plans to do after scrambling the brains of Lew Jenkins and Knock ing the tiara off of Red Cochrane's lovely forehead. It may be. of course, that Mr. Cochrane will kick Wilson's teeth down his throat and Mr. Jenkins will curdle the youth with a right to the hutt.nn It mav be that Wil son never will win the privilege of mixing with these eminent gentle men. who are, respectively, the wel terweight and lightweight cham pions of the world. But the boy from Los Angeles has designs on both titles and recently was Ashing for Mr. Zivic with bait to the tune of $20,000. That should be enough bait for Mr. Zivic. who Is extremely partial to money in all fo:-ms. if he regains his title from Cochrane. My information on Wilson comes from Signor Francis Albertanti, famous opponent of birds and sun shine. Albertanti Survived Sunshine, Birds The boys in the rue cauliAower felt very sorry for Signor Albertanti when he took his typewriter off to California some seasons back. Cali fornia, you might say. is crawling with sunshine and practically over run with birds. "He won't last a month,” pre dicted the late Joe Jacobs, other wise known as Yussel the Muscle. "I have seen Albertanti travel miles to avoid fresh air. He only knows nbout daytime by hearsay and the song of a bird outside his window will send him into a nervous break uuwu. However Signor Albertanti man aged to stick it out, even becoming pleasantly sun-kissed and able to ptomach the notes of the thrush without wincing. And now, if this Wilson is a real fighter, his forti tude has been rewarded. For there Is nothing Signor Albertanti likes better than to have a fighter to play tunes about on his Baby Grand Un derwood. He was largely respon sible for the buildup of James J. Braddock as a heavyweight title menace. Though Signor Albertanti likens Wilson to Gans. Dixon, Walcott, and Henry Armstrong, the young man seems to have the specifica tions of a Panama A1 Brown—5 feet, 11 over all, and lanky. Panama Al's Height Worried Bantams If you recall Mr. Brown, he was a black string bean from the Carib bees, who cut a wide swath in Euro pean circles and won the world ban tamweight championship, which he defended ably for some period of time. The principal feature of Panama Albert's equipment was his length. Towering over other ban tamweights. he would hold them off with his left hand, while they tried wildly to reach him. Then, at a suit able moment, he would knock them dead with his right hand. Wilson is heavier than Brown, but he is much taller than the average lightweight or welterweight. He was born in Spencer, N. C., 23 pears ago and proceeded West by t»asy stages. Graduated from high school in Los Angeles, he was good enough at drawing to make a career of commercial art, but the example of Neighbor Henry Armstrong, who was collecting titles like stamps, brought him into the fight racket. The high point of his amateur record was a voyage to the Olympics In Germany as America's bantam weight representative. He met an Italian mimed Ulderico Sergio, and, according to expert eyewitnesses, was given the business. As Commercial Fighter, Wilson Is Success There was a faint prejudice in Germany at the time against Amer ica's "African auxiliaries.” The judges liked Signor Sergio, and paid so. The verdict W'as reversed when Sergio fought Wilson in America later. Since turning commercial. Wilson has knocked out some pretty fair operatives, including Baby Ariz mendi. Richie Fontaine, Pete Lello (who once stopped Jenkins* and Norment Quarles. His quest for two titles shows the influence of Armstrong, who couldn’t leave those titles alone. The chances are that Henry took more than were good for him. So now we find young Wilson at a point where his manager, Walter Melrose, is brandishing $20,000 in the teeth of Fritzie Zivic and urging Fritzie to put up his dukes. After what happened to Fritzie. Melrose probably will switch his challenge to Cochrane. According to Siennr Alhprmnti Wilson exudes culture to an alarm ing extent. His culture, of course. Trill do him no good against Zivic or Cochrane, but Signor Albertanti aeems to feel that his right hand, self-educated, will attend to that detail. Griffs' Records BATTING. G AB R. H 2b 3b.Hr.Rbl.

NEW YORK, Aug. 1.—No ath letic group appears to have felt the effects of the draft more than the amateur golfers, most of whom are about the proper age to fill uniforms. Only 650 have filed entries i for this year's championship, Au gust 25-30 at Omaha, compared with 755 who were footloose a year ago. The entries were closed last night. Out of this total, 143 will qual ify in trials during the next fort night at 28 points throughout the country.

Washington Champs Rule Net Juveniles Of Old Line State Bensinger, Schweitzer Win Junior and Boy Titles in Baltimore SpicUl Dispatch to The Star. BALTIMORE, Md.. Aug. 2 — Washington’s junior and boy tennis champions, Bobby Bensinger and Britt Schweitzer, who won those titles in The Evening Star tourna ment in June, had a pair of Mary land juvenile championships to their credit today as the result of finals in the State's open tourna ment here yesterday. Although Bob Hall. Bensinger's final-round victim in the Washing ton tourney, gave his doubles part ner more of a battle yesterday. Ben singer prevailed by scores of 6—0, 6—4, 7—5. * Schweitzer, though, avenged a licking by Stuart Shpritz of Bal timere in the Middle Atlantic tour nament, to gain the boys' crown in straigm, seuj, o—i. o—**. Bensinger and Hall followed their singles duel by pairing to win the doubles diadem from Don Poist and Sonny Weisberg, 6—1, 6—2. 4—6, 6—4. Schweitzer and Shpritz. how ever. were upset by Jimmy Harrison and John Wyatt in the doubles final of the younger division, 6—4, 6—2. Schweitzer and Shpritz had been seeded first and their conquerors second. Baltimore's Plunge May Hoist Toronto From I. L Cellar Br the Associaifd Press. Less than a month ago, even the stanchest Toronto rooters had little hope of ever seeing the Maple Leafs emerge from the International League cellar, where they’ve spent practically the entire season. However, at the rate the seventh place Baltimore Orioles have been dropping lately, the Leafs may still have a chance to squirm out from under. On July 9. Toronto was 16 games out of seventh place and had just ended V losing streak of 12. The Leafs haven’t exactly been setting the league on fire since then, win ning only nine of their past 24 starts, but Baltimore went down the chute, winning only two of 24 out ings. to cut their margin in half. The Leafs narrowly missed a chance last night to shave off an other game as Baltimore lost, 6-0, to Rochester, but a five-run ninth inning rally fell short to give the Newark Bears a 9-7 victory. Hurler Embree Bought By Skidding Indians By the Associated Press. CLEVELAND, Aug. 2 —In an effort to bolster the skidding Indians, Charles 'Red) Embree, 21-year-old | righthanded pitching star of the Wilkes-Barre, Pa., team, has been purchased by the Cleveland club.

Golf Tilt Becomes Endurance Test Bj the Associated Press. BALTIMORE.—The pros who are forced to shoot extra holes In their chases for fame and fortune have nothing on a pair of 15 year-old Baltimoreans. Tied for the lead with 87s at the end of 18 holes in their age class at Maryland Junior golf championships. Jack Lowe and Leo Haselback went 27 extra holes to break the deadlock. *■ And Lowe had to sink a long putt in the dusk for a birdie 2 to win. Women's Competition Holding Interest in District Tennis Four Are Given Equal Title Chances; Welsh Standout Among Men By BILL DISMER, Jr. There was only one choice as 64 j contestants started in pursuit of the I District men's tennis championship at Edgemqpr Club today, but four women were given equal chances to bag the title of the Women's League tournament scheduled for a simultaneous beginning at the Rock Creek courts. With Barney Welsh seeking his I i.nnc»/'ilhv0 T'lictri/'t titlp and showing no signs of weakening, others in his half of the draw al ready have set a semifinal meeting with the champ as their ultimate goal. The best that the 32 entrants in the opposite half could hope for was the somewhat doubtful dis tinction of being licked by Welsh in the finals. Leavens Again Seeded Second. As in other tournaments. Don Leavens—the guy who licks Welsh in exhibitions but loses when the chips are down—was seeded second. The Tournament Committee recog nized Ralph (Buddy) Adair's im I proved play in both the City of Washington and Middle Atlantic competitions and seeded him sixth, ' but otherwise seedings were pat terned after the two events. Fol lowing Leavens are David Johnsen, Hugh Lynch, Bill Breese, Adair, . Charley Channing and Eddie Miller, i Miller is the 19-year-old University of Maryland sophomore who whipped Bobby Benslnger for the publi! parks championship last Sunday. Bensinger, incidentally, is forsaking the District for the national junior tourney at Culver Military Academy which starts Monday. Repeat of M. A. Looms. If seedings prevail, the District will be a repeat of the Middle At lantic tourney from the semifinals rounds on, as both Welsh and John ! sen are paired in the same half and Leavens ana Lynch m the other. All signs point to another Welsh j Leavens final in the men's aflair, ' but there are certain to be some i new faces in the later rounds of the i Women's League tourney. That is because such topnotchers as De fending Champion Willie Herbert, Margo Mahony and Mary Belln are not entered. Hence, the competition looms as a four-woman fight among topseedea Charlotte Decker, Frances Rowan, Peggy Smith and Sara Moore, rated in that order. It should be an in teresting tournament if not pro ductive of the best tennis, with Mrs. Rowan and Mrs, Smith showing vast improvement over the form they exhibited at the start of the season Entries for doubles which are ! scheduled to start tomorrow either should be made at the courts or telephoned to League Secretary Hat I tie Meyerhof! at Randolph 7360. Di Maggio to Autograph Defense Stamp Albums Joe Di Maggio, the Yankees' star outfielder, will make a personal ap pearance at Treasury House Mon day evening, autographing Defense stamp albums at ceremonies which will be dedicated to the honoring of Coast Guard Day.

HOLLYWOOD, Aug. .2.—Billy Conn is going to face the music, and meet “Pop”—at last. “Pop" is the Pittsburgh fighter’* new father-in-law, Jimmy Smith, who once announced that he would I punch Billy in the nose if he mar ked his pretty daughter Mary Lou. Well, Billy married Mary Lou in an elopement, anyhow, soon after the warning and shortly after he had been knocked out by Joe Louis in round 13 of their heavyweight | championship bout. Then the two came to Hollywood, Billy to star in a motion picture, i "The Pittsburgh Kid,” and Mary % i Lou to see the sights—and honey j moon. , The picture is just about com pleted and the Conns, Mr. and Mrs., and his fight manager, smiling Johnny Ray, are scheduled to leave for Pittsburgh Sunday. At one banquet given for Billy, he got up to say a few words. These were the words: “I’m not much of a speaker, and I guess Republic Studios discovered in the first two days I wasn’t an actor. But I sure am a runner, "Ask my father-in-law! i “I’m homesick. I want to go home, me and Mary Lou,” said Billy. “Then-” and he heaved a sigh, “I guess well have It out with ‘Pop’."

Call Lincoln 1918. a Tossed Out of Ball Park, Alvis Has Ideas of Declaring War On Turner Ring Interests Joe Turner, the old arm lock athlete who made the best of them yell “Uncle" in his heyday, had another opponent on the mat today, I but there was some doubt concern ing his ability to keep him there. Joe is grappling with Ray (Kid'i Alvis. 160 in the pink, pride of Riverside Stadium and an old catch as-catch-can contestant in his own right. At last report the Kid was losing a bad decision to his high blood pressure and Turner, but, according to ringsiders, was ready to counter with Melancholy Michael, his Sunday sock. Turner won yesterday's round with plenty to spare when Referee Clark Griffith ruled he could have the ball park for his fistic carnival August 25. at the same time evicting Alvis, with all his furniture, from an August 19 date previously agreed on. This didn’t sit well with the Kid, who has Joey Archibald and Chalky Wright signed for a 15-round bout on the latter date. Unfair, Alvis Feels. Alvis, shrieking like a wounded canary, said he would go on with his show anyway, probably on August 15 and maybe even a day or two before the big Turner affair. “X don’t hold nothing against Joe,” he said today, “but Mr. Griffith gave me a date at the ball park and I made plans accordingly. Then, after I get the match signed, post a stiff guarantee and spend a lot of money getting things ready. Joe tells Mr. Griffith my show will hurt his if he lets me have the ball park on that date.

Dodd Slab, Stick Star For Hagerstown Nine gpeeitl Dispatch to The Star. WINCHESTER. Va.. Aug. 2.-Jay Dodd, student at Washington, D. C.’s Wilson Teachers College, twice was the man of the hour for the Hagers town Motor Co. nine yesterday in its Tri-State Industrial League dou ble-header with the pace-setting Winchester Gas & Oil Co. Pitching the first, game, Dodd set the league leaders down with two hits as he won, 7-0, and in the nightcap, with the score tied at 5-5 and two out in the 11th inning, Dodd tripled with a man on first to break up the game. The double victory snapped a six game losing streak for Hagerstown which had been a contender for the title before its slump doing all the time. D.dn't 1 go to him and make arrangement* to rent his ring and other equipment for my show?” Griffith says there was a little misunderstanding regarding dates at the park and under the rules he has , a perfect right to reverse his de cision. Anyway, he forgot Joe was putting on a match the latter part of the month and what the heck is i Alvis complaining about if he can have it some other time? Might Compete with Turner. So now Alvis is talking of taking his fighters into Riverside a day or two before the Turner show and let the public take its choice. He also 1 has had offers from the West Lan ham speedway officials to put it at the midget auto racing plant, but he thinks it best to keep it within walking distance of a streetcar line, i This threat of running almost on 1 top of Turner’s show, which Alvis can do with the District Boxing Commission's benign approval, is his Melancholy Michael—his brisk belt to the button. But the threats and gestures apparently have left Turner unmoved. ‘ Melancholy Michael,” he scoffed.. "Hah, I can take a thousand of ’em Listen, I've been in there with some mighty rough guys myself.

At present there isn't any need to get excited, but the wise boys will anticipate their golf club needs for 1942 and lay in clubs which may last them a few years. Throughout the golf club manu facturing .industry the word is being passed around that next year it may become tough to get new golf clubs, and a year later it may be impos sible. The golf club manufacturers right now are running into the same kind of priority requisitions that are holding up orders in all but essential defense operations. One manufacturer, in a letter to the pros asks them to be patient, and says that steel and other es sentials In the manufacture of golf clubs right now must go through the same priority status as other materials which are used In the | defense industries He doesn’t ad 1 vise overstocking in anticipation of I the day when there won't be enough clubs to so around, but. hp Hop* ask the pros, asks them to be patient, of the involved business that is the manufacture of golf clubs. Steel Is Big Essential. Steel, of course, is the big essential In golf club manufacture nowadays, and not a great deal of it is used, by comparison with the heavy in dustries. But all steel comes under priority orders nowadays, and the time can come when there won't be enough steel from which to make golf clubs. When you consider that the average wooden club steel shaft weighs around fi'7 ounces, and the steel head on an “iron” club weighs around 11 or 12 ounces, it doesn't seem so much. But in the aggregate, with possibly 500,000 golfers buy ing new equipment each year, it must amount to something. Gene Sarazen, always looking ahead, said weeks ago that it might be smart for golf club manufac turers to stop making clubs for a year or more. Gene's observation at the time was intended to catch up on the slack of clubs already manufactured, and sell them be fore more were made. Gene didn't anticipate the time when materials themselves would be difficult to ' obtain, or if he did he said nothing about it. Of course the whole golf club situation isn't serious when you consider the thousands of acres of hickory growth that could almost instantly be transformed into good golf clubs shafts. And the per simmon. fit for wooden club heads. And probably there are enough old steel heads lying around in lockers and golf shops throughout the land to fit out all the golfers with a ' complete new set of clubs, with wooden shafts. And in passing you could find plenty of men who'll testify they feel much better hit ting a golf ball with a wooden shaft- . ed weapon as against the dull, feel lacking steel shaft. Industry May Lack Material. But whatever that situation, it doesn't do to laugh off the possi bility that the entire golf club in dustry may be fumbling around a few months from now trying to get some of the essential metals that go into a golf club. Not that it will do any great harm to the pres ent crop of linksmen and links women who have modem sets of matched clubs. These clubs hap pen to be so well made and so ever lasting that they’ll do for a decade and more with good care. But new addicts come into the game every year.
