St. John's Five Tunes'
For April Meet as It
Grooms All-Preps
By Bill Fuchs
Joey Gallagher, who is coaching)
the All-Preps for their second an-1
nual game with the All-Highs at
Uline Arena Saturday afternoon, is
killing two birds with one basket!
ball.
Gallagher, coach of The Star
Tournament Champion St. John's
team, is throwing his Johnnies intoj
the All-Prep practice sessions. This
not only gives the All-Preps more
players with which to scrimmage, j
but also keeps the entire St. John's'
squad in shape for its trip to New
port, R. I., April 1, when they will
compete in the Eastern States
Catholic scholastic tourney.
Four of the St. John’s squad—
Jack George, Tom Fannon, Vince
Durkin and Billy Martins—are on
the All-Prep team. This, Gallagher
readily admits, is an advantage, al
though he’ll be using substitutions
freely.
“I tried using two complete teams
in practice, but foifnd that free
substitution works better,” Galla
gher says. “These boys all are smart
enough to work together. And we
have so many scorers we’re not go
ing to emphasize any one man.”
In George, all-around athlete and
high-point man on the St. John’s
basket ball team, Gallagher sees a
future Bob Feerick, now ace with
the pro Caps.
Gallagher sqys Feerick is uncanny.
"He's good off the boards and gets
as much, enjoyment out of a good
pass as a good shot,” the coach
avers. "So does George. He's not
a ball hog. And lately he’s been
developing his one-hand shot—Fee
ricks specialty.”
Jack Spicer and Clem Conlin of
Gonzaga, Tom Dean of Friends and
Gil Bogley of Landon, of the All
Preps. will be playing their last
schoolboy basket ball game Satur
day. Mike Nolan of Gonzaga and
Roger Kingsbury of St. Albans will
;e back at their respective schools
lext year.
G. U. Dropping T-Football, but Likes Outlook
Coach Hagerty Gets Keen Aide in Margarita, New Backfield Mentor
By Lewis F. Atchison
"No, I’m not dropping the
spread formation,” said Jack
Hagerty, pulling on his working
clothes and preparing to send his
Georgetown football squad
through its first session of spring
training. "We're going to use
the spread and single wing and
throw out the T next season.
"We don’t have anybody to
handle the ball under the center,”
he explained. "Babe Baranow
ski's too small—can’t see over the
heads of those big linemen to
throw a pass—and Elmer Raba’s
too slow-. But I think we’ll do all
right without it. The single wing
has plenty of power and decep
tion.”
The old quarterback was in good j
spirits. He has his full quota of
problems, as usual, but he also
has a new backfield coach in Bob
Margarita, a Chicago Bear alum
nus, plus an assortment of up
coming freshman who might
make the Hoyas bad medicine
next autumn. There are a couple
of backs in the group who could
supply the consistent scoring
punch missing last year.
Margarita, who played with the
Bears in 1944 and ’45, then went
to Harvard as Dick Harlow’s as
sistant. should help the Hoyas.
A graduate of Brown, his addi
tion to the heretofore strictly
alumrfi staff came as a surprise
yesterday, and with no fanfare.
We found him going over black
board diagrams with End Coach
George Murtagh just before the
start of practice. His presence
will enable Hagerty to concen
trate on over-all strategy and
forget the details.
“I’m going to spend more time
bossing George and Mush,” he
laughed, nodding toward Mur
tagh and Line Coach Mush
Dubofsky, who loftily ignored the
jibe. Anybody familiar with
Georgetown football knows the
ends and linesmen have been the
least of Hagerty’s worries, a
sheer delight to watch in action.
Georgetown's outlook in *48 is
bright for several reasons, includ
ing Billy Conn and Dick Barba.
"Turnstile Tommy” Hardiman is
another hopeful, but Hagerty’s
BOB MARGARITA.
best reason for being optimistic
is that he loses only a handful of
men from last year's squad. You
can't laugh off the departure of
Bus Werder, Lou ' Robustelli,
Larry Koncelik. Elmer Oberto
and Len Bonforte, but the blow
is softened by the supply of po
tentially good material left, Hag
erty feels that with a few good
breaks the Hoyas can go places
in ’48.
This Billy Conn, for example,
is the kind of runner who can
bust up a game on one trip with
the ball. He reminds Jack of
long-legged Johnny Bozek of the
late 20s. Barba, a 6-foot, 185
pounder, isn’t as fast as Conn,
but may turn out to be one of
the best backs coming up. He
runs like Tommy Graham, who
also should come into his own
next season, and has a Jack
rabbit’s change of pace.
Then, too. Hardiman, a slender
5-foot-ll, 170-pounder, could be
the prize package of the lot even
though, he’s tabbed as a better
basket ball prospect. He is a
great competitor and his color
made him such a box-office at
traction in high school that
sportswriters gave him the
“Turnstile” handle.
“Some of the New England
sportswriters were terribly up
set when Tommy came to
Georgetown,” put in Father
Matthew Kane, Georgetown's
faculty moderator of athletics.
“One in particular couldn’t un
derstand why he passed up a
chance to go to Holy Cross to
enroll at Georgetown, which, this
writer said, obviously had reach
ed its peak in basket ball and was
on the decline.”
But nobody at Georgetown is
counting the poultry before its
in the broiler. Too many things
can go wrong between now and
next December to spoil the pleas
aut outlook, as Hagerty knows
only too well. The Hoyas again
are plagued by the old bugaboo
of lacking an oustanding passer.
But Hagerty is hopeful some
body with a good arm will turn
up in spring practice.
Dubofsky is wondering if
Johnny Berger, a corking good
guard two years ago, can shake
off the effects of an ear infec
tion that impaired his efficiency
last season. If he should de
liver, and such men as Jim
O'Keefe, Red Sheridan and Vic
Banonis are up to par, George
town’s line should be of the usual
reinforced steel-concrete - quality.
But Georgetown should con
sider itself lucky to have as many
men as it does. Competition
among colleges is keener than
ever ,and when even good stu
dents have trouble enrolling in
crowded schools you can imagine
what football players are up
against.
"Weren’t you telling me about
the scout who dropped in to see
a boy and found 13 scouts already
there?” Murtagh asked Hagerty.
“Yes,” Jack replied, “and the
boy’s father was setting up re
freshments. It was more like a
party for the coaches.”
"At that rate it will be expen
sive to be a college prospect,”
observed Father Kane.
“How about the boy in Ten
nessee last year who was trailed
so persistently by so many scouts
he finally had a nervous break
down,’” commented Margarita.
“A player has got to be rugged
both on and off the field to stand
the gaff these days.”
Caps Take Playoff Bid
To Boston Court
Washington's Capitols were an
roused lot as they moved into
oston for tonight's Basket Ball
■ssociation game with Honey Rus
sll’s Celtics at the Boston Garden.

Some strange happenings occur in
pursuit of the finny tribes. Last
month, W. H. Murray, while trolling
for rockfish in Lockwoods Folly Inlet
near Shallotte. N. C., caught an 18
pounder. This catch was followed
by a strike from a fish which he
could not handle and which got
away with his plug and about 10
feet of line. j
Three weeks later, Delmas Hewett
of Shallotte was fishing for mullets
in the Shallotte River Inlet,, eight
miles from where Murray lost the
big fish. Pulling out his net, he
found, along with other fish, a huge
striper with a plug in its mouth, a
free hook on which had caught in
the net as the fish swam by.
The fish that got away from Mur- i
ray weighed 25 pounds when Hewett
netted it.
The blocks of ice piled up along
the Potomac's banks have been slow
in melting. Anglers, consequently
have found it difficult, and in some
places impossible, to get dowm to the
water. This is not unusual. Old
timers have seen ice remain as late
as April, but we hope a spell of
warm weather will clean out the
present mess before the perch and
herring begin their spring run.

Woolf, Seabiscuit
Honored Jointly
By th* Associated Press
ARCADIA, Calif., Mar. 16.—
Near the bronze statue of a great
horse, Seabiscuit, they are going
to erect another of a great
jockey, Georgie (the Iceman)
Woolf.
This seems altogether fitting,
for Woolf regarded Seabiscuit as
the greatest horse he ever rtide.
It is two years since Woolf was
killed. His mount, Please Me,
stumbled going to the first turn
of a mile race at Santa Anita,
tossed Woolf to the turf and
! broke his neck.
The life-size statue of Woolf,
in riding regalia, carrying whip
and saddle, will be erected in the
saddling paddock at Santa Anita.
Public contributions will help
defray the cost.

Turner's Arena Bests Uline's
In Ring Promoters' Rivalry
Washington can t support two fight cards the same night as
everybody has known all along. When Liberty A. C. (operating at
Uline’s) and Turner s Arena first tried it three weeks ago. both had
good crowds. Perhaps the novelty of it and the extra attention given
the conflicting shows were responsible.
They tried it again last night and this time the fight customers
were selective. Turner's had a good crowd. Matchmaker Goldie
Aheam's program at Uline's was held in comparative privacy. He
had 814 customers, paying a gross gate of *1.866.29 and a net of
*1,315.17. Goldie figures he lost ‘'*1,500, maybe *2,000.”
At the smaller Turner's Arena, they had a nice payday. Match
maker Gabe Menendez was able to count 1,559 customers, only nine
less than his best crowd of the season three weeks ago. Gross gate
was *3,561.99; net, *2,653.59.
Turner's ...
Jimmy Cooper tasted defeat last
night for the first time in his short
career at Turner's, but claimed aft
erward an injury to his right hand
suffered in an early round kept him
from putting out his best. Jose
Cardenas, a law student at Mexico
University, was awarded an eight
round unanimous decision.
Even with three good hands, how
ever. Cooper might have had
trouble. Although lacking the pow-<
er of his opponent, the south-of-;
the-border featherweight was cagy;
and gave Cooper better than he
took.
A low blow which interrupted the
bout in the seventh round didn’t
help Cooper, either. In the previous
round the crowd was on its feet as
Jose and Cooper slugged it out
against the ropes. Cooper had stag
gered Cardenas, but the Mexican
proved tougher than he looked and
went on to win.
Red Gaddis also had his hands
full with David Seabrook of Hart
ford, Conn., who was a replacement
for Bobby Polowitzer, also of Hart
ford. Gaddis,' however, showed
enough to get the decision.
Herbie (BifU Jones, the Southeast
southpaw, has four straight knock
outs to his credit after disposing
of Philadelphia's Jim Parting at
2:03 of the second round. Jones
hit Parting so fast very few saw
the K. O. punch. The biller said
later it was a right hook on the
button.
In the other eight-rounder, Mc
Coy Jones, Philadelphia welter-;
weight, won a technical knockout’
over Sunny Boy Bunn. The fight
was called after three rounds be
cause of Bunn's left eye, which was
cut and bleeding profusely.
In the opening four-rounder, Gar
land Edwards knocked King David
down twice in the second round and
won on. a technical knockout in 59
seconds of the third. Both boys
are from Washington.

Uline's . . .
Sonny Boy West, local Negro
lightweight, won the main go at
Uline’s, a 10-rounder, over Charles
iCabey) Lewis of New York, West
did what fighting there was in a
not to brilliant engagement. Lewis
made few offensive gestures, and
kept West from doing much damage
by constant back peddling.
By far the best fight was the 10
round semifinal in which Cyclone
Roy Williams, St. Petersburg mid
dleweight, upset Washington's Al
Wright. Williams l06t to Wright
last year, also to Bee Bee Wash
ington and Smuggv Hursev, but he
appeared a better fighter than any
of them this time. This was a slug
fest all the way and Wright ended
plenty beat up and barely on his
feet.
Wright hit the deck for nine in
the opening round. He was all but
out again in the second. He rallied
thereafter, but Williams was too
much of a fighter for him.
Rest of the card was fair. Johnny
Arduini, D. C. bantam, decisioned
Joe Bell of Philly in five, and Julian
Keene, Washington light-heavy
weight, got a kayo over Baby Kid
Nichols of Philly in the first.
Nichols’ purse was held up for not
putting up a contest. He went
down once when hit, but twice he
was down from no blows.
With the slim crowd and small
gate, the payoff on the main event
wasn't much. Both principals got
20 per cent of the net, which
amounts to $263. Wright and Wil
liams worked for $250 guarantee*
and earned it.
