Carter, Ex-Pitcher, Sets Pace
For District League Pinmen By Ben McAlwee Frank Carter, who once dreamed of being a star southpaw in the big leagues, at 36 now has visions of becoming Washington’s leading lefthanded bowler, a spot long held by Frank (Bub) Guethler. With top average of 127-8 for 21 games in the Major District League, Carter, a member of the strong Hendrix Steak House team, Is headed in that direction. Guethler, who from 1944 to 1947 was the Capital’s No. 1 pin man, also was quite a pitcher on the sandlots a while back. Carter first attracted attention as a pitcher when he led the Sergt. Jasper Post team to the American Legion championship in 1927. He was signed by the Baltimore Orioles in 1929 and for the next two seasons just about threw his arm off trying to make the grade in the International League. “Guess I didn’t have enough heft in those days when I had my big chance,” said Carter. Only 5 feet V/2 inches tall, Carter weighed but 140 at the time. “Should have had some of the 198 pounds I’m carrying around now,” he reflected. For the next 10 years Carter was one of the best pitchers on the local diamonds. Turning to bowling, Carter soon became a star. With a 126 average he was giving Fred Murphy, a King Pin teammate, a battle for the District League lead in 1945 when he was called into the Army. Back on the maple lanes last season he averaged 120 with the Lucky Strike team in the minor District circuit. Carter now is employed at the Naval Gun Factory as a metal roller. Perce Wolfe, the H. B. Leary Bros, team star, is only a pin be hind Carter with a 127-7 average while Cletus Pannell, the Miller Wrenn Furniture ace, trails by two sticks with 127-6. Joe Harrison of Morris Miller Liquors, twice District League in dividual champion, is fourth with 126-8. Willie Zehring, who only a year ago was a pitching star at George Washington High School, bobbed up in Clarendon major loop last night vWi a season record 172 game to give Amalspin a 2-1 edge over Floyd Decorators. A 419 set boosted his second high average to 124 plus. Sonny Weedon, another rising star, shared the limelight at Clar endon with 166 and 432 as A. H. Cohen nicked Hub’s Men’s Siiop, 2-1. Hiett’s Servicenter gained clear title to first place with a 2-1 win over Bynum Insurance when the Harry Hisey’s, tied for the lead, dropped two games to Tog gery Shop. Fred Dietrich’s 378 and George Hall’s 377 were the big wallops for Hiett’s. Champion A. L. Kelley & Son whitewashed Miller-Wrenn Furni ture as Jack Barkley posted 376. Johnny Stump’s 389 led as Arling ton Wallpaper blanked Atwell Decorators. Fred Rosenberg fired a season record 405 set with 150 his top single to give Ace Wrecking a 2-1 victory over Schneider’s Hard ware in the Hebrew loop. Dave Singer maintained his high 125-2 average by leading Capital Trash Co. to a 2-1 decision over Hof berg’s Delicatessen with 159 and 373. The Male Angle Shirt Collar and Tie Variations By harry iveene There's news in necklines, and I'm not referring to the plunging female kind. I see more and more men at both town and country events wearing a new shirt and tie combination which achieves a new neckline silhouette. They choose this combination not as a replace ment for other collar styles, but to augment and vary their shirt and tie wardrobes. The shirt is tailored with a rounded point collar which 6its moderately high on the neck. It’s always worn pinned under the knot of the tie. This is a revival of a once popular style, but by no means is it reminiscent of starched, stiff chokers. The newer version provides all the comfort a man could want! Round point collar shirts are apropriately worn with both business and casual clothes, de pending upon their fabrics and colors. For wear with business clothes, those made of white pique or broadcloths and madrases in pastel tones or slightly deeper shades of blue or corn are in good taste. x Shirts made of Oxford cloth can be worn with business or casual clothes, in both white and colors with emphasis on "faded” yellow as a color particularly complimen tary to sportswear clothing tones. The second part of the silhou ette is accomplished by a tie made in a new narrower shape. While many variations are being offered, the one I like best and which more well dressed men are choosing measures about three inches at its widest point and an inch-and a-quarter at its narrowest. In Pastel shirt of Oxford cloth with rounded-point, comfort collar to achieve new sil houette. Tie formed into regular knot. addition ,to creating a new line and giving an uncluttered look to the coat'front, this new shape al lows more of the shirt to assert it self and this is especially good looking with newer pastel shirt ings. . In keeping with the new collar style, this tie should not be tied in the Windsor knot. While spread collars can accommodate this knot, rounded point collars take to regular knots which allow the col lar to be pinned beneath It with out bulkiness. Shirts are avail able with both barrel and French cuffs: I’d suggest the latter for dressier business clothes while barrel cuffs are appropriate with more casual ensembles. Harry Keene will answer fashion ques tions addressed to him in care of' The Star if accompanied by a stamped, self addressed envelope. Belvoir Smooths Attack For Tilt With Marines Port Belvoir’s football team is smoothing its combination T and single-wing attack this week in preparation for Saturday’s game against Quantico Marines at Bel voir. In three previous meetings the Engineers have a 7-point scoring advantage despite Quan tico’s 42-27 triumph last year. Indications from Belvoir are that the Engineers will take to the air in a move to circumvent the Marines’ defensive line. The running attack probably will be centered around George (Big Sid) Evans and Delmus Hicks, both fast halfbacks. Robert Graves is the mainstay of the Belvoir line.

ST. 3687 Sports Writer Corum In Line for Derby Job Of Late Col. Winn By tbt Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 25.— The name of Bill Corum. New York sports columnist, was moved to the head of the list today as the likely successor of the late Col. Matt Winn as planner of the Kentucky Derby. One member of the Churchill Downs Committee going over the list of prospects to carry on for Col. Winn, who died this month, confirmed late last night that Corum had been Interviewed by the committee. The committee’s selection will be submitted to the Downs’ Board of Directors for final approval. As an afterthought to his con firmation that Corum had come to Louisville last week end to talk with the committee, the member, who asked that his name be with held, said: “We have not recommended anybody. That’s all I can say to night. Maybe tomorrow I will have more to say.” William H. Veeneman, chairman of the committee, wouldn’t con firm or deny the New York Journal American columnist was being considered. He said the committee had dis cussed several prospects. Two other members of the com mittee, J. Graham Brown and Stanley Hugenberg, said the com mittee as a whole hasn't discussed the selection since an initial meet ing when the names of approxi mately 20 men were presented for consideration. Other members of the commit tee are Charles I. Dawson and Louis J. Hermann. Corum was a close friend of Winn for many years and has been one of the biggest boosters of the Kentucky Derby among the Nation’s writers. Other names which have been “talked” as a possible successor to Winn include Tom R. Under wood, Lexington, member of Con gress from Kentucky and former official of national racing bodies; George (Brownie) Leach,‘director of public relations for the Downs, and John H.
