Eastern High Headed
Nowhere, but Packs Poison for Central By Bill Fuchs Eastern High School, practically out of the race for. honors in divi sion 1 of the District public high football series, may have much to do with which team represents division 2 in the title game No vember 25 at Griffith Stadium. At this point the division 2 issue is narrowed to two teams—Central, last year's series champion, and Tech. Each has a record of three victories and a tie. Each has two games remaining, the final with each other. But Tech is reasonably assured of meeting Central November 19 with a record of four victories and a tie. The Maroons take on a de cidedly weaker Chamberlain eleven November 4, while Central meets Eastern. In Eastern, the Vikings will be meeting a team which tied Tech and lost to Anacostia by a mere 2 points. The Ramblers have an able passer in Danny Cookman and a bull-like runner in Dom Adrian!. And if Richie Hite, their •tar fleet-footed, broken-field ex pert, recovers sufficiently from a knee injury that has kept him sidelined most of the season Cen tral may have trouble. If the Vikings get by Eastern and Tech disposes of Chamber lain. the two clubs will meet, with the division title at stake. Wilson is in the driver’s seat In division I. The Tigers have clear-cut ownership of first place and will be favored to take their remaining three games against Roosevelt, Western and Chamber lain. Although Anacostia has the same won-lost record as Wilson (2-1), the Indians have played one more game—a tie with East ern. Ties count as one-half a victory and one-half a defeat and standings are based on percentage. Wilson’s percentage is .667 to .625 for Anacostia. The Tigers are in the driver’s seat. Anacostia plays Chamber lain Friday and winds up against Coolidge, but victory in both cases won’t help the Indians unless Wilson loses one of its three. And if that happens Anacostia will win the title over a team that beat it, 40-6. Record*. Division 1. W. L. T. Division 2. W. t. T.

Calif., Oct. 25.—A quick front-office double play yes terday gave Del Baker to the San Diego baseball club as manager for 1050. He will succeed Bucky Harris, returning to the majors as mana ger of the Washington Nats after a year in the Pacific Coast League. Baker comes here from Sacra mento, which he piloted to third place in the Coast League last season. The double play, Cleveland to San Diego, was completed while Baker was denying at his San Antonio (Tex.) home that he was slated for the job. He said he had a place lined up with another club. The other club turned out to be Cleveland, which was sending him to San Diego under a working agreement. The announcement was made here by the San Diego club presi dent, Bill Starr, after long-dis tance talks with Vice President Hank Greenberg of Cleveland and Baker.

Ave. TA. <060 CL 1412 Mr. Spencer Mr. Binti TKO by Titone Dims Cooper's Hope to Fight For Bantam Crown Being beaten by Charley Titone of Brooklyn is no disgrace al though it comes rather hard to Jimmy Cooper, local feather weight, over whom Titone scored a sixth-round technical knockout last night at Turner’s Arena. It was the first knockout scored against Cooper and put a crimp in his hopes for a bantamweight title fight early next summer. Titone’s record and his actions last night show him as a classy and fast featherweight who has beaten some fairly good fighters. His recent split-decision loss to Cooper was his first setback in more than a year and he under standably wanted to even matters last night. He did that and more, winning three of the first four rounds be fore-a right cross floored Cooper for a nine-count in the fifth round. In the sixth he continued his advantage and, with hard rights and lefts to the head, soon had Cooper unable to defend himself. Referee Marty Gallagher stopped it after 56 seconds. That outcome undoubtedly saved a big rhubarb about a “long count’’ that a great many fans thought Cooper got in the fifth round when he was floored. When Cooper staggered to his feet he appeared very groggy. Referee Gallagher gave him a few seconds’ respite as he wiped off Cooper’s glove, looked him over to see what shape he ^as in and asked him if he was okay. That gave Cooper two or three seconds to pull him self together and, before action could start again, the bell saved him. Undoubtedly Gallagher’s action did help Cooper, but it is the regu ■a COM. ifJt *t 6INOAI HATuau coaa TM-wotto iiowrt amavf lar custom here and a good one. Every time a fighter is downed he gets the same treatment from all District referees so that it is 12 to 15 seconds before another blow is struck. The customers certainly didn’t like it last night and, during the rest period between the fifth arid sixth rounds, booed Referee Gallagher. A crowd of 1,004 paid a net gate of $1,425 from a gross of $1,904. Also a humdinger of a battle was the semifinal in which Light weight Pat Thomas kept his pro record intact by taking a split decision over tough and experi enced Billy Unce in five rounds. In prelims: Sam Kelsey TKO’d Cy Redman in the fourth; Jim O’Brien stopped Gene Kelley in the first; George Carrigan TKO’d Tonk Mayfield in the fourth, and Battling Moore won a split over Kid Saucer.

TRUCK.. £ L E' •B0DIES DUMPS VANS STAKES $ WgEEBBm Ballston Indians After $1,000 T o Further Recreation Plans There will be a model T Ford, standing at the corner of Fair fax drive and Glebe road to night—a grim reminder of the present state of recreation fa cilities for boys and girls in Arlington. The ancient vehicle has been borrowed by the Ballston In dians Athletic Club. Tonight a group of boys from the club will surround the vehicle in an attempt to draw attention to the placards they will be hold ing. Among other things, the pla cards will remind passersby: 1. “T is okay in football, but t Arlington’s T model recreation is bad for the kids.” 2. “Arlington doesn’t have a boys’ club, a swimming pool or a ball park. We need them.” 3. “Our annual drive for funds—$1,000—brought in $104. We are broke!” The Indians this year fielded three baseball teams which played a total of 108 games at a cost of $1,500. To keep up its work Club Director Dallas Pearson estimates $1,000 will be needed for the coming year. “The need in Arlington is too great,” says Pearson. “We can’t quit now.” BRAKES RELINED I While You Wait Ford ’»-« I Buick Spc. \ Piym.uth 59-“ )9\\M Chevrolet \ Dodge '**-’■« / Free Adjustment for life of lining.
