Washington, D. C., Wednesday, January 19, 1944—A—17 *
Win, Lose or Draw
By DENMAN THOMPSON,
Star Sport* Editor.
Baseball Fan for Half Century, and Still Is!
"I, too, want to join in the chorus of welcome—so I am doing it!”
writes John A. Ferrall, 223 Pennsylvania avenue S.E. “It certainly is
good to see the bylines of Jack Keller, Rod Thomas and yourself in
The Star again, though I believe I sometimes am able to recognize
your sure touch in the unsigned contributions. Jack Keller always will
rank in my book as the No. 1 sports “heads” writer, because of the
clever heads he used to add to my bowling yarns. And Rod—he seems
to be the Tex Rickard of the sports writers—a natural-born promoter.
I do hope he already is assembling material for a life of Gen. Eisen
how'er, to be written, of course, with a view to its ultimate use by the
movies!
“As for yourself, it’s all nonsense for Bill Flamholtz to refer to you
as a veteran. You are merely the youngster who stepped into Ed
Grillos ample brogans—and filled them more than adequately. But
you are just a Johnny-come-lately. Now, I saw' my first Washington
club baseball game in 1893, so that w'ith the close of the past season I
completed 50 years of consecutive attendance at the Washington ball
games, a good part of my annual leave being spent there. By 1894 I
was a dyed-in-the-wool fan. It's a long walk from Capitol Hill to the
ball park and back, but I never realized it then. We had no money for
such frivolous things as car rides. For 20 cents we could get a seat
on the first-base line within a few yards of Ed Cartwright, wfio played
the bag by standing on it firmly at all times. We had a couple of
high-class players, however: one was Selbach, an outfielder, and an
other was Win Mercer, a pitcher who could string together wins of 10
consecutive games or more without any support to speak of—he was
really amazing.
Attending Games Required Marathoning Ability
"When in 1901 the Washington club joined the American League
and opened up at Fifteenth and H streets N.E., the opening date found
me with just 25 cents, and working at Twentieth street and Pennsyl
vania avenue N.W So I walked from there to the ball park and then
home to Capitol Hill. Fan? You said it! Especially when you re
member that Washington then was habitually 'First in War, First in
Peace, and Last in the American tor National) League.' With the
start of the American League it looked as though we had a team
capable of finishing at the top, but sixth place was the best it could
do for the first two years, and then seventh or eighth until Griff came.
"There you have a name that blots out al lothers in the mind of
the old-time Washington baseball lan. He came here in 1912, of
course, and with what seemed to be a couple of unimportant changes
finished in second place. He repeated in 1913. Picture what that
meant to fans like myself who had held torchlight parades when the
team mounted as high as 6th in May, say!
"Your Connolly story reminds me of another. He had a pretty
bad day at Washington and on the following afternoon was behind
the plate again. As the park attendant came out and poured the
white lines to the bases and then outlined the batters' boxes, ft fair
fan turned to her escort and asked what the boxes outlined were for.
Before her friend could answer, a fan nearby told her: "Those,
lady? Why those are for Connolly's seeing-eye dog.'*
His Favorite Yarn Concerns Jakey Atz
“My favorite baseball story, however, is one by Jakey Atz who
used to play sandlot baseball here before he went to the White Sox,
and who afterward managed several pennant winners for Fort Worth
in the Texas League. It seems that Fort Worth was playing Beau
mont in a rather critical game and it reached the last half of the
ninth with Fort Worth one run ahead and Beaifmont at bat. By
the time two men had been retired. Beaumont had the bases loaded,
so a hit would ruin Fort Worth. And at the bat was Jim Galloway,
one of the best hitters in the league!
“Imagine the feelings of the Fort Worth bench warmers when
Jakey burst into hysterical laughter. They were on the point of rush
ing him to the detention ward when Galloway popped out. Then
Jakey explained. In his eagerness to get up there and drive in the
winning runs, Galloway had batted out of turn and so he was auto
matically out. No matter what he did, it wouldn't matter. What a
delightful spot for an opposing manager! Jakie said he was afraid to
protest at once for fear it would cause a riot; he waited, hoping that
Galloway would go out—as he did.
As ever,-."
Title for C. U. Looms
After Victory Over
Johns Hopkins
Bpecial Dispatch to The Star.
BALTIMORE. Jan. 19—Catholic
University of Washington may be
the team to beat in this year's
Mason-Dixon Conference basket ball
race, judged on the form it showed
here last night in trimming Johns
Hopkins. 62-39. The Cardinals al
ready twice have defeated Gallaudet,
last- year’s loop champion, and
there's a suspicion the Washington
quint might not be able to find real
competition in the circuit this sea
son.
With Freshman Mike Szklarz
leading the attack with strong aid
from Johnny Mercak and Dick
Scanlon, both holdovers from last
year, the Cards pulled ahead after
midway through the first half to
take a 24-14 edge at intermission.
They Jays made a battle of it only
In the first 10 minutes when C. U.
gained an 8-7 margin, thereafter

Errant Floor Goal
Wins Fiasco, 5-4
By the Associated Press.
ELKHART, Ind., Jan. 19.—Pans
booed, players fraternized and
officials spent most of their time
clearing debris off the floor in a
strange high school basket ball
game last night between Elkhart
and Riley High of South Bend.
Elkhart, which had averaged 45
points in four previous league
games, won. 5 to 4—but had help
from one of the Riley players.
Elkhart scored a field goal, a
free throw and got the other two
points when Ernie Kovatch of
Riley became confused and tipped
the ball into the wrong basket.
I Falcons Spice Hockey
Game, but Smoother
Cutters Win, 5-3
It's a auestion whether Washing
ton's hockey fans prefer the smooth,
high-grade National or American
League brand of the ice game, which
they seldom see. or the rough style
they first saw when the Eagles of
the Eastern Amateur League intro
duced the game here.
Anyway, they showed their ap
proval for the fiercer, less skillful
game last night by practically lift
j ing the roof off Uline Arena as the
Philadelphia Falcons of the Ama
teur League disrupted the usually
i smooth Curtis Bay Coast Guard
! Cutters, forcing the latter to play
! rough too in order to take a 5-3 win
back to Baltimore.
!. The Falcons, coached by Redvers
Mackenzie, former Eagles mentor
‘dashed up and down the ice going
‘nowhere against the Cutters' de
fense, but providing plenty of ex
citement and spills.
On the other hand the more pol
ished Cutters worked close into the
Falcon's nest, and Philadelphia’s 17
year-old net tender. Red Henry,
really had a busy time and turned in
numerous spectacular saves.
There was one good fight which
started between Manny Cotlow of
Qurtis Bay and Les Gasparlni of
Philadelphia and which shortly had
practically all players embroiled.
Cotlow and Gasperini were given
five-minute penalties. More excite
ment was furnished when little
Whitey Carlson of the Falcons made
a solo dash down the ice and ran
into two big Cutter defensemen.
Whitey hit the ice and skidded into
the Curtis Bay goal, but he didn't
have the puck with hiip.
Maruicci's first-period goal and
another early in the second frame
by Ed Lundberg gave the Cutters
a 2-0 lead before Ed Garvin of
the Falcons made a penalty shot.
Ed Barry added another for Curtis
Bay. which was matched by Leo
Gasparini of the Falcons. Milt Duns
more and Bud Cook added Cutter
markers early in the final frame be
fore A1 Langlois scored for Phila
delphia.

Marshall Gets Bout
With La Motta by
Licking Bolden
By the Associated Press. *
CLEVELAND, Jan. 19.—Lloyd
Marshall believes there's no place
like home—especially when you’re
fighting.
The Californian returned to his
native Cleveland last night to pound
out an easy 10-round decision over
Nate Bolden of Chicago in what
Matchmaker Larry Atkins billed as
a duration light-heavyweight title
bout.
The win was Lloyd’s fourth in five
Cleveland appearances and it earned
him a March engagement with Bolt
in’ Jake La Motta, the roughhousing
Bronx middleweight. In his other
loca tussles, the former Golden
Glover notched decisions over Anton
Christoforidis and Curtis Sheppard,
knocked out Ezzard Charles and
belted Heavyweight Jimmy Bivins to
the floor before taking the count
himself in the 13th .
Rated by Ring Magazine as the
No. 1 active lightheavy, Marshall
ispent most of his time chasing Bol
den around the Arena ring.
1 He caught up with the back-ped
aling Chicagoan enough times to
unleash a slashing assortment of
rights. One of these sent Bolden to
the canvas for the count of nine in
the third round after Nate tempo
rarily ceased his bicycling to stagger
j Marshall with a left hook.
Bolden was the aggressor in only
one heat—the fourth. He landed two
hard rights that rocked Marshall on
his heels and continued with an
assault that forced Lloyd to cover
up.
Marshall returned to the offensive
lin the fifth and Bolden actually ran
to another corner after Lloyd ma
neuvered him against the ropes and
I flailed him with lefts and rights.
Marshall weighed 168'<t 2*4
pounds less than Bolden. The 5.910
customers contributed $13,934.
Matchmaker Atkins announced
the signing of Lightweight Cham
pion Beau Jack for a February 15
engagement in Cleveland Public
Hall. Jack is recognized as cham
pion by the New York State Athletic
Commission. His opponent will be
announced later.

Eastern is celebrating a sweet bit
of revenge over the team that beat
it for both the high school and met
ropolitan basket ball championships
last year after upsetting Tech. 38-29.
: in the feature tiit of yesterday's
schoolboy double-header. Playing
an entirely different game from the
one presented last week while losng

ftie Maroons on the Ramblers’ court
I yesterday afternoon and gave them
the works. Western won the opener
over Anacostia. 33-19.

margin coming from the foul line

A pair of buckets and a foul shot
by Bob Lamon and another basket
and two free ones bv Ed Charnock
were the major parts of Eastern's
12-9 lead in the first period. Lamon
got two more field goals in the sec
ond period as the Ramblers in
creased their lead at one point to

jWMISHED WIPERS
Soldiers Fall Before
Marquette; Milligan
Now on Same Spot
By TED MEIER,
Associated Press Sports Writer.
NEW YORK. Jan. 19.—Thirteen
seems to be a jinx to winning college
basket ball quintets.
Last week De Paul's Demons of
Chicago, undefeated and boasting a -
13-game winning streak, lost to Val
paraiso of Indiana. That left unde- i
feated Camp Grant and Milligan
(Tenn.) College with 13-game
streaks.

The jinx caught up with Camp
Grant last night, Marquette hand
ing the Soldiers a surprise 46-38 de
feat at Elgin, 111. The Golden Ava
lanche got off to an early 17-6 lead
and led throughout. The Soldiers
pulled up to 34-33 in the second half „
before Marquette again crept away. '
Milligan on Spot Friday.
Milligan, boasting victories over
Duke and North Carolina in its '
long streak, risks the Jinx on Friday
when the Buffs meet Emory and J
Henry at Bristol, Va.
Second in surprise only to Mar- *
quette's triumph was North Caro- *
lina's 37-to-33 victory over Duke in J
a Southern Conference game at Dur- {j
ham. It was Duke's first league *
start and the third straight loop *
triumph for the Tar Heels.
Otherwise, results ran to form in
games throughout the country. The
powerful Norfolk (Va.) Naval Train- I
ing Station chalked up its 17th vie- *
tory in 18 starts by whipping Tem
ple, 47-28; Great Lakes won its 15th 5
in 17 games by downing Glenview
Naval, 57-41. and in the Pacific
Coast Northwest, flashy Gonzaga
made it 14 of 15 by trouncing East
ern Washington, 61-33.

Central, Improved;
Wilson Winner
St. John's basket ball team sees a
turn for the better now after ending
its three-game losing streak bv
turning back Central yesterday. 39
29. Wilson kept things even for
public high quints trying outside
competition yesterday, however, aa
it topped St. Albaus, 40-21, for its
third straight win.
The Johnnies had to stage a big
comeback yesterday to top the
Vikings. Pete Panturis and A1
Sussm&n led Central into an 18-11
half-time margin, and seemed to
have the game under control. The
Johnnies thereafter reversed pro
I ceedings and began to turn big
George Hughes loose. Limited to
3 points in the first half. Hughes
hit a hot streak in the last two
periods for 13 more points, and aided
by Chuck Dudley, had the Cadets
in front, 27-21, going into the final
frame.
