Blackwood and Vinci
Promise Hot Scrap At Turner's Tonight Tha middleweight division, which has supplied much of the boxing action in Washington this winter, again takes the spotlight at Turner’s Arena tonight with a 10-rounder between Joe Black wood of Washington and Chet Vinci of Utica, N. Y. Vinci is an ex-Marine who started fighting as a serviceman in Hawaii, where he won the Pacific championship. He has had 34 bouts since turning pro and has scored vic tories over such good ones as Sonny Home, Eddie Smith by kayo and Henry Chemel, and has drawn against Charley Zivlc. Blackwood Is a recent impor tation here, having moved in from New York, where he scored wins over Coley Welch and A1 Priest and drew against Ralph Zanelli. Here he quickly moved to the top with a decision victory over Ken Stribling, the boy who beat Smuggy Hursey last week, and a two-round kayo of A1 Wright. He has a pleasing style, is a fast puncher and tosses a sharp left hook. Some good things are ahead for Blackwood if he triumphs tonight. He seems the logical choice for a non-title bout with Marcel Cer dan that Matchmaker Gabe Men endez has in the works for early this summer at Griffith Stadium. He also has been offered a match with Robert Villamain in London —if Villamain wins his upcoming bout against Young Ben Turpin. Three flve-rounders and a pair of fours are on the supporting card. Walter Rowan, who beat Bee Smith recently, goes against Perry Lowe of Camden; Kid Wolfe and Julian Keene, local light heavies, meet, and Don Wagner, Roanoke heavyweight with several wins here, goes against Ben Har rison in the five-rounders. Fours are Little Dynamite against Her man Johnson and Emmet Harris against Bobby Suma. U. 5., British Women In Table Tennis Final ly tht Attetiatad Prtu STOCKHOLM, Feb. 7. — The United States women table tennis specialists will meet Great Britain for the Corbillon Cup, emblem of team supremacy in the world championships. The Americans, led by Peggy McLean of New Yonk, swept to their sixth victory without a de feat yesterday by humbling Hun gary, 3-2. Britain also has a 6-0 record. Barring an unexpected reversal of form, the United States men will be shut out of the final match for the Swaythling Cup, the team competition for the males. The United States has a 4-1 rec ord, but trails unbeaten Hungary in the A group. Hungary, with six victories, is expected to meet Czechoslovakia, which has a 7-0 mark, for the trophy. Miss McLean, the jpnited States champion, won two singles matches and teamed with Thelma Thall of Columbus, Ohio, in the doubles to, share in all three points against' Hungary. Richard Miles, who didn’t drop a decision, was the star of the United States men’s triumphs over Wales, 5-0, and France, 5-4. A walkout by three Balkan coun tries—Hungary, Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia—was averted when the world federation withdrew a decision to allow7 Spain and Japan to compete. * In a compromise move that brought harmony it was decided that these countries should be barred, but any team wishing to play them unofficially might do so. Ivor Montagu of Britain was re elected president of the federation. The 1950 tournament wras award ed to Budapest.

Charles, at 180 a skimpy fellow in the ranks of the heavyweights, takes a 210-pound Johnny Haynes in a 10-round fight at the arena. Haynes stands 6 feet 4. I; This is a key fight for Charles, tfte 27-year-old Cincinnati Negro yftio ranks at the moment as the chief applicant for the job of swapping punches with Joe Louis for the heavyweight title next June. A loss to Haynes—who is not considered a title possibility— would jar Charles out of his lead ing position in the jockeying for the championship match and per haps sidetrack him permanently. At tne same time, a victory over Haynes won’t mean too much. The New York bruiser who grew up in Texas and got his ring training on the West Coast has all to gain and little to lose and is expected to carry the fight to Charles alf the way. Haynes’ last fight here resulted in a knockout over Chicken Thompson of Philadelphia. Short ly after that, Thompson died in a hospital. ; One of the biggest crowds of the winter season is expected to night as Charles guns for his 29th | victory in 30 postwar engage 1 ments. He counts among his vic tims Joe Baksi, Jimmy Bivins, El mer (Violent) Ray and Archie ! Moore. Ahead on February 28 is a 10 rounder against joey Maxim, an other leading journeyman heavy weight, at Cincinnati. The asjsignment at hand is the key oi&,£^bv.

Coach Ebbie Goodfellow's Fly ! ers are only three points ahead of the Cleveland Barons and Pittsburgh Hornets, who are tied for second, and four in front of the fourth-place Indianapolis Caps. The Flyers were beaten, 4-2, last night by the Buffalo Bisons while the Hornets downed the New Haven Ramblers, 5-4, and the Caps beat the Hershey Bears, 3-2. The Barons were slaughtered, 9-3, by the Providence Reds, East ern half leaders. A AU Will Bestow Rare Honor At Fete for 'Pappy' Sullivan Sure, and Irish hearts will be light a week from tomorrow night at the Mayflower Hotel where James Aloysius Sullivan is to be banqueted by the District AAU in honor of his long and effective service to amateur sports. But the joy will not be confined to Sons o’ Erin alone for silver thatched “Pappy" Sullivan’s friends are legion, and a host of them will be there to see him re ceive a National AAU lifetime membership plaque from Eddie Rosenbloom, president of the Dis trict AAU. Only four other men, including Gen. Jonathan M. Wainwright. the hero of Bataan, have been honored thusly in the 20-year his tory of the local chapter. Several months ago its Board of Gov ernors decided that in Pappy’s case the honor was long overdue —and acted accordingly. Sullivan migrated to Washing ton from Hartford, Conn., in 1906 and in his 43-year residence has carved a special niche in the community. He has reared a large family, to become many times a grandfather, has worked his way to the vice presidency of an en graving firm, and has dug into his pocket and gone out of his way myriad times to further the cause of amateur sports and to give the underprivileged kids a better break. A charter member of the Dis trict AAU, he toiled ceaselessly to legalize boxing here. When Congress acted in 1934 he staged the city’s first amateur ring tour ney at which it was permissible to charge admission. Pappy fosters all sports, but boxing is his favorite. This stems from the days when he was a <£ggai£& TiflW /MSCjbmhMI Me Nitty T«»t« « T»blit Form » E»«y to T«Im JAMES A. SULLIVAN. hustling young 118-pounder around Hartford. He has directed every Golden Gloves tournament staged here, excepting the 1949 show. And it took the combined efforts of his physician, family and friends to sideline him this year—because not even a heart ailment could curb his ardor. He is taking things easier now. But he’ll be at his party next week—he told the doctor so! Brakes Helmed * While You Wait Free Adjustments tor life of linings Olds, Pontiac, 1$11 .50 Dodge, Buick Spc. I II Duplicating D. C.

Hockey Rally by Hoyas Clips Baltimore Team Special Dispatch to The Star BALTIMORE, Feb. 7.—George town’s hockey team will have no closer calls on the ice this year than last night when two goals Tj’ithin 30 seconds in the last period gave it a 7-6 decision over the Sports Centre skaters. It was a fast, rough match, marred by frequent knuckle-throwing in the second period. The Hoyas took a 3-0 lead in the opening period on goals by Jerry and Tom Cassidy and Charles Palms. Palms added the fourth Hoya score «arly in the second period. But Sports Centre, with Ray Poratto sparking the at tack, caught up with Georgetown at 4-all, then went ahead, 5-4, mid-way in the final period. Fitz gerald and Gino D’Giralimo then fired the quickies that won the decision.

Maryland Hunt Cup Goes Back T o Early Point-to-Point Racing By Angelina J. Carabelli With the announcement of dates for the spring hunt race meetings by the National Steeple chase and Hunt Association, own ers, trainers and riders start won dering about their chances at the Maryland Hunt Cup, My Lady’s i Manor, the Virginia Gold Cup, Middleburg and on down the list. Followers start tuning their fa vorites and oldtimers look back on the sport's beginnings and re call incidents that, make the sport’s history. Timber racing belongs primarily to the fox hunter and is at its best in communities whose citizens participate in the sport them selves and whose ancestors have done so for generations. The Meadow Brook Cup is the oldest race between flags in America and was run for the first time in 1883, 11 years before the Maryland Hunt Cup. First ’Chase Run in ’69. The first steeplechase was not run until 1869. Point-to-point races had been introduced from England about a decade before •and there had been a few hurdle races at several tracks, mostly in Canada, but they were only mild ly popular and there was no hurt racing at all. This first steeple chase was 1 mile over six fences. Six horses, all hunters, started and H. B. Todd's Harry Booth won. The race was run at Jerome Park and was listed as the first race on the second day of the meet so as not to interfere with the remainder of the pro gram. Meadow Brook, the most import tant hunt club on Long Island, ar ranged its first race with a cup as the most important sweepstakes. The race was for hunters, about 3 miles over stiff post and rail fences, stone walls, double raspers and sod-banked hedges. It was held at Hempstead Plain, which, incidentally, was the oldest racing ground in America. Six horses started and Hobson's Choice, “a robust half-bred brown gelding ridden by Stanley Mortimer, was the winner.” From a humble beginning the Maryland Hunt Cup, which draws thousands of spectators from everywhere in the land and over seas, has become an annual spec tacle as well as sporting event. Nine gentlemen in Maryland of 1894 risked their lives over 4 gruel ing miles to win a silver tankard. AUTO REPAIRING and REPAINTING BODT AND FENDER WORK McMahon Chevrolet, Inc. 1238-46 Upshur St. N.W. GE. 0100 Between Gw«l, Are. * 13th 8t. _ Three horses survived to the last fence. “Tim Burr, out in front, slowed to a trot and popped over safely, while Sixty, closing fast, lunged through the top rail. They dwelt as they landed and Johnny Miller, trailing them over the last fence, churned up the stretch to lead them over the finish.” Thus the first running of the Maryland Hunt Cup was won and lost. The Maryland Hunt Cup has undergone many changes since its first race, but essentially and in spirit it has'not changed. Each year aspirants still risk their lives for the adventure and the glory symbolized by a $100 cup. The nearby Pennsylvania hunt country has a rich fox-hunting history. Whitemarsh starts the Pennsylvania season rolling*with a race card that includes a 4-mile point-to-point limited to hunting men rather than gentlemen jockeys. Following is the famed Radnor hunt race. Then comes the historic Rose Tree with its ■ dumb-bell” course which brings the horses so close to the grand stand that first-row boxholders almost can touch the horses as they go by. Trainers and jockeys (don’t like the sharp turns of this course, but horses will continue to be saddled in this paddock if only because Rose Tree abounds with legends of fox hunting in Amer ica. Grew rrom Gloucester viud. The club Is an outgrowth of the Gloucester Club, the first organ ized hunt club in America (1766) and goes back to meets which in cluded George Washington.

An eighth-box strike in the final game proved the win ning wallop for Miss Gulli, who was the Capital’s only contestant. Nora Kaufman and Irma Smith, Portsmouth rollers, trailed with 721 and 718, while Ellen Holland of Norfolk, who fired a national women’s four-game record score of 561 in the Dixie here at King Pin several month ago, was fifth with 715.
