Player Ties Record,
But Pays in Subpar
Golf at All View
By Merrell Whittlesey
When a golfer ties the unofficial
eourse record and loses money it
means the opposition must have
been pretty good, too, and that’s
what happened to Bob Morris of
Prince Georges yesterday at the All
View Club in Ellicot City.
Morris and Ralph Bogart played
Eddie Ault, the Indian Spring club
champion and Jock Olmsted, who
was one of the city’s top amateurs
before he moved to Chicago and
joined the Tam ’O Shanter Club.
Morris tied the amateur record at
66 but so did Ault and Ault and
Olmsted defeated Morris and Bo
gart, 3 and 1. Olmsted had 73 and
Bogart 74. The winners had a 66
best ball.
The Middle Atlantic PGA has
moved the scheduled pro-lady
tournament next Monday back to
Friday, August 29 to allow the pros
and their amateur partners to com
pete in the renewal of the Bedford
Springs, Pa., Pro-amateur and open
championship next Monday.
The event attracted the top pros
from Pittsburgh, Philadelphia,
Baltimore and Washington in pre
war years and was held last in 1941
when Leo Walper of Congressional
was second in the open and Ralph
Bogart of Chevy Chase was second;

Army Navy Country Club's golf
team was held to an even break
in the home and home series with
the Farmington Club of Charlottes
ville when the latter topped the
service club, 11% to 9%, yesterday
over the loser's course. Army-Navy
won the first match at Farmington.
Howard Nordlinger, the peren
nial Woodmont champion, gave the
contestants in the coming District
Amateur championship an idea as
to how tough he will be in the
tournament when he played his
home course in an unofficial course
record 70 yesterday.
Nordlinger was on the losing:

Most of Washington’s tournament
golfers are familiar with the Country
Club of Maryland course in Balti

the hitting prowess of Jimmy Thom

Thomson posted the lowest score,
a 3-under-par 67, as he and South
Africa’s Bobby Locke broke even
with Host Pro Andy Gibson and
Otto Greiner, unattached Baltimore
pro, formerly of the host club.
Thomson drove the green on the
"par four” 335-yard 10th hole and
dropped a 20-foot putt for an eagle

Kiner's Home Run Hitting Links
Name With Diamond Greats
By th* Associated Pres*
PITTSBURGH, Aug. 18.—Ralph
Kiner is only a sophomore in the
major leagues, but his home run
antics of the last few days have
served to link his name with such
baseball greats as Babe Ruth, Tony"
Lazzeri and Lou Gehrig.
With 35 homers to his credit in
115 games this season, Kiner is just
three behind Ruth's pace in his
record-breaking year of 1927 when
the Bambino hit 60.
Hank Greenberg, who hit 58 four
baggers himself in 1938 and there
fore ought to know, declares of his
“Ralph is about as good a long
Htat.fl.nr>* Viit.t.*r ax t.hprp 1x around
today. He Is young and has his
whole future in front of him. He
may turn out to be the greatest hit
ter in the game."
The 25-year-old Kiner has been
dogging the heels of Johnny Mize,
currently the league’s home run
leader, all season, but he didn’t
really get hot until last Friday. Now
he trails Mize by just one round
Ties Many Homer Marks.
He knocke&jfMit a pair of home
runs in Friday’s night tilt with the
St. Louis Cardinals and hopped on
the Redbird hurlers for three more
Saturday. Records got tied up like
a party line.
Briefly, he:
1. Tied the major league record
of four home runs in consecutive
times at bat first set by Bobby Lowe
of the Boston Nationals in 1894 and
equaled by such illustrious diamond
players as Gehrig and Jimmy Foxx.
2. Tied the major league record
of five homers in two consecutive
games established by Cap Anson of
the Chicago Cubs in 1884 and tied
by Ty Cobb and Lazzeri.
S. Tied the major league record
Keen Pitching Performances
Mark Intercity Loop Games
Three pitchers, topped by Ralph
Fraser, who hurled no-hit ball for
St. Francis Xavier in the Intercity
Junior League, today may congrat
ulate themselves for carrying their
sandlot teams to victory yesterday.
Besides Fraser, who pitched his
team to a 7-1 victory over the Mary
land Wildcats, Bernie Myles of the
Irish War Vets, now wearing the
crown in the Veterans of Foreign
Wars League, and Buzzy Mullen of
the Northern Virginia League Lin
coln Lions supplied their teams with
the necessary punch.
Myles, Eastern High School star,
gave up only four hits, while fanning
15 and walking none, to lead the
Irish to an 8-2 crown-clinching vic
tory over Equality-Waiter Reed Post.
It was the ninth win in a row for the
Irish and the fifth in second-half
After pitching shut-out ball for
11 innings, Mullen stepped to the
plate with one out and two men on
and Slammed out a triple to win his
own game.
Fraser's n o - h i t performance
helped St. Francis to a tighter grip
on second place, 3*4 games in front
of the Wildcats. Hume Springs
kept 2*4 games in front of St. Fran
cis by downing Seat Pleasant, 10-4.

Powel, Rec Net Ruler,
Waxes Ambitious;
Close to Sweep
Col. Nick Powel of the Air Forces
has the kind of confidence now that
should help him hold his own among
the better tennis players around
Washington. He got a needed "shot
in the arm” yesterday by winning
the District Recreation men’s singles
title in the District Recreation
tournament and now would like to
meet again some of those players
who've beaten him.
Among those he'd like to tangle
with once more are Barney Welsh
and Hugh Stewart. Welsh beat him
in one of the early rounds of the
recent Middle Atlantic tourney and
Stewart did the same in the All
Army tourney. "I guess their repu
tations overawed me,” he grinned
yesterday after taking the Recrea
tion title. “ I don’t think I can beat
them yet, but I would like another
crack at them anyway.”
His straight set win over Hy Rit
zenberg yesterday at Rock Creek
courts was the first tourney he won
of any importance. Scores were
6—1, 6—3, 6—0. He later teamed
with Edgar Powers to top Ritzen
berg and Charles Hackney for the
_I- O A <1 DU O
UiVll O UV/UViVO V» V TI V V, V W, V V,
6—2. Today he’s paired with Elinor
Shaw against George and Willie
Herbert in the mixed doubles final.
The Herberts won a semifinal yes
terday over Gene Pry and Helen
Levy, 6—0, 6—0.
The women’s doubles was decided
yesterday, with Margaret Sweeney
and Elinor Shaw downing Jane
Freeman and Mrs. Betts Custer,
6—1, 1—6, 6—3. Mrs. Custer took
the women’s consolation wtih a
6—3, 6—4 triumph over Glenore
Hall, 6—3, 6—4.
Col. Powel made excellent use of
a drop shot placement to beat
Ritzenberg yesterday. It was a soft
shot with loads of backspin that
went only a few feet over the net
and just died there. He scored with
it seven times in the first set, 11
in the second and eight in the third.
Ritzenberg took only the fourth
game, his own service, in the first
set, but made more of a battle of
it in the second. He won the first,
fifth and sixth games of the middle
set to tie it at 3-3, but thereafter
Powel took over and won nine games
in a row. The first three games of
the final set were love games. G. H.
of six homers in three games set in
1936 by Lazzeri.
4. Tied the major league record
of seven homers in four games, also
set by Lazzeri in 1936.
5. Set a new National League
record of five homers in two games,
six homers in three games and
seven homers in four games.
Led League Last Year.
The tall, rangy player gave a
hint of what was to come last
year when he smashed out 23 home
runs to lead the senior loop. He was
the first freshman to cop the title
since Harry Lumley did it for
Brooklyn in 1904 with nine.
A standout baseball and football
player for his Alhambra (Calif.)
High School, he attracted the at
tention of Pirate acouts and was
farmed to Albany of the Eastern
League in 1941. After two big sea
sons there, he was moved up to
Toronto of the International
League, but played only 43 games
before he was called into the Navy
Air Service.
He was discharged in December,
1945, and joined the Pirates in
spring training. Since then he has
made baseball history.

Tribe End Found Pros Had Old College Spirit
Duckworth Rated Good Prospect; Irked by Sitting on Bench
By Lewis F. Atchison
Star Staff Correspondent
LOS ANGELES. Aug. 18.—'"I’ll
never forget Wallace Wade
standing in the dressing room
before we went out on the field,
telling us all we had to do was
get the jump on the Redskins
and it would be a breeze,” Joe
Duckworth was saying.
"They’re pro football players
and if you hit ’em hard at the
start you’ll take all the spirit out
of them,” Wade told us.
“We did. Johnny Kimbrough
got away for that long touch
down run on the first scrimmage
and we thought we had the
’Skins licked. Their the house
fell in. Talk about spirit, they
had more that day than any
college team I’ve played against,
and won the game easily, 26-7.’*
end candidates, and you may as
well learn to spell the name now,
because he’s going to spend the
autumn In Washington.
He weighs 215, stands 6 feet 2
and really likes the game. He
was fretting about not playing
more in last Saturday’s scrim
mage, cussing his luck between
drags on big, black cigars that
would choke a cow.
“What kind of a squad are they
running here?" he demands,
overlooking the fact that the
coaches have seven other wing
men trying out and had to use
them. "I didn't come 3,000 miles
to sit on the bench. I want to
play. Nells bells, I didn’t play
long enough to work up a good
sweat. Why, you could have
gotten more exercise at a dance.”
But End Coach Wayne Millner
and Boss Turk Edwards have
Duckworth's number and it's an
A-plus rating. He looked so
good before the hard work began
Edwards was afraid he might be
a 2 o’clock star, but under fire
Joe proved he’s just as hot. He
snags passes, knocks down t&ckles
and knows how to play defensive
football. He is considered one
of the most promising rookies in
Duckworth halls from Colgate,
where he was a standout last
year, but he likes to talk about
the Army All-Stars who played
those fund-raisine eames aeainst
the pro6 in X942.
"The major (Wade) got us to
gether before the Packer game
and asked if anybody thought he
could stop Don Hutson,” Joe re
lated. "Bob Peters, Princeton’s
all-America halfback, raised his
hand and Wade said, ‘All right,
you’re starting.’ I think it was
about the fourth play when
Hutson gave Bob that ‘Sorry,
I’ve got to go’ business, and was
off for his first touchdown. It
ended up by Wade discovering
he didn't have anybody who
could stop Hutson.”
Duckworth met Danny Reeves,
Loe Angeles Rams owner, at West
Point, where both were stationed
as captains, and during a football
bull session one night Reeves
mentioned that he owned a pro
fessional club.
"Yeah?” said Joe, perking up.
"What team?” *
"We wondered if the Army
boys, working under Army orders
and for Army pay, were miffed
at the pros, who received pretty
good hunks of dough for playing
and didn’t have to knuckle to
tha Kroce
"No, not at all." he replied.
"After all, we were football play
ers, too.”
Duckworth had one season with
Erny Pinckert, who coached the
backs, on the Air Transport Com
mand eleven at Memphis, Tenn.
Joe outranked Enry, who had
onlyethree stripes, so the tables
will be reversed when the Red
skins play their intra-squad
game August 26 at Santa Ana
because Joe will be working for
Erny, co-promoter of the game.
.Ti* nf Wnallsh ripsrpnt hut
his freckled face has a shade of
Irish in it and there are other
times when he could pass for the
terrible tempered Mr. Bang.
He says he not hot-headed,
although he’s been in plenty of
fights on the football field.
"But never thrown out of a
game—yet,” he proudly adds.
End Johnny Lookabaugh has
Joined the Tribe's growing list
of injured players. He got a kick
on the chest in Saturday's scrim
mage and passed it off until yes
terday when the injury forced
him to remain out of uniform.
He was to be X-rayed today.
Pictures of Bob De Fruiter’s chest
show no fractured ribs but a
separation and he’ll be out of
action 10 days to two weeks.

on knees, matched the Dons in
touchdowns and field goals. The
margin of victory in the exhibition
game before an estimated 19.000
came on a point after touchdown.
Coach Clift Battles of the Dodgers
said he was pleased with the line’s
play and added he still believed his |
men charged faster and got down- I
field quicker with the “high line.”
Critics pointed out that most of the!
Dodgers’ gains were made on Glenn
Dobbs’ passing arm and not through
the line.
Both teams turned to the air in
fact. Angelo Bertelli, the Dons’
quarterback, passed Los Angeles
into position for the first touchdown
and Charley O'Rourke went the last
three yards on a sneak in the first
The Dodgers answered with a
field goal Set up by Dobbs’ passes.
Bill Martinovich kicked the 10-yard
goal. Dub Jones then tossed two
for 40 yards for Brooklyn, the last
.a 26-yard touchdown effort to End
Jim McCarthy. The Don line
blocked Martinovich’s conversion
try for what proved the deciding
Ben Agajanian. who converted the
Dons' two points after touchdown,
also kicked a 20-yard goal in t*he
first half and the Dons held a 10-9
The Dodgers dominated play in
the third period, but the payoff
came in the fourth with a Dons’
touchdown that stemmed from an
O’Rourke pass interception. He
passed 26 yards to End Bob Titche
nal for the score, Agajanian again
There was just time enough for
Dobbs to pass Brooklyn 75 yards
downfield in a series of plays that
ended in a 13-yard toss for Dobbs to
Halfback Monk Gafford for a touch
down. Martinovich converted.
Both All - America Conference
teams now head East for opening
conference games. _j
