nical Knockout;
Parker Turns In
Pretty Exhibition
The arms of both Roberto Hino
josa. 18* 1-2 of Brownsville, and
Ralph Leach, 192 of Point Isabel,
were raised in « draw after a gruel
ing. gory 10 rounds in the Fort
Brown skating rink Monday night.
Leach had height, reach and
wc.ght on Hinojosa, and through
the-c managed to hold off the lat
ter even though he was the better
boxer. Hinojosa had a decidedly
’•uphiU’’ fight and was backing up
the major portion of the lime as the
former football star lumbered in.
Hinojosa rushed a couple of times
in the second round but was beaten
of by Leach's frenzied retaliation.
Hinojosa's only effective work was
done when the bsttlcrs came in
close.
Hinojosa’s mouth was a splotch of
blood in the fourth round- Lcacn
pressed his advantage in this round
and carried it. The fifth round was
a rough and tumble with Hinoj .ja
attempting to win back what he had
lost. Both wcie bloody as the bell
sounded.
They appeared winded and Impe
lent in the sixth round with neither
doing effective work. Hinojosa was
the aggressor in the seventh and
*- eighth rounds. Leach took the lead
in the ninth mid tenth round*.
Hinojosa always got the best when
they came in dose but the long arm.-,
of Leach held him off the major
portion of the time.
Leach suffered an attack of in
fluenza several day* before tho bout
and bad been unable to do btni.u
eus tapering off training.
Frankie Cline of lion? ton ».sked
for a bout with one of the fighters
before the 1 out.
A towel was whipped in under the
' glaring light in the renter of the
) ring for Jimmy Bland. 14U pounds
f of Weslaco, at tho opening of the
third round of his bout with Johnny
Martinez, 140 of Monterrey.
Martinez came out of his corner
in a bruvk, business-like manner at
the opening gong ai d from the first
flurry there w«s no doubt as to
the outcome of the battle. Johnny
»et to work bounding and weaving
about the Weslaco lad, punching him
in tho kidnevs with trim hammer
blow* when they clinched. Near the
• nd of the second round. Marline/
herded the clean-cut youth into a
corner and had him on the floor
when the gong sounded.
Rland wanted to go on r »h the
bout but his seconds threw- in the
towel at the opening of the third
round.
Kid Tepper o? Fort Brown chal
lenged Martinez.
Kid Guerra. 136 1-2 pound San Be
nito "rooster" ran his knockout
string up to three at the r n *>
of Billy Williams, 136 pound of
Brownsville, in the fifth round of
their scheduled 6-round bout.
The opening rounds were typical
of Williams' bout*. He u*cd the
ropes for all they wc.ro worth but
the San Benito lad soon refrained
from pressing the blond when ho
lolled on the rope*. William* quit
the ropes in the fourth round and
Guerra's advantage became appaienf
as they toed it out in the center »>r
the ring. Near the end of the
lound, Williams swung hnck into the
ropes and rushed out at Guerra.
Guerra's hrad struck William* some
where in the midsection and the
Mon I slumped to the floor. K-fm*
Goodman he^an to toll the conn! but
the bell beat him to the count of
nine.
INilltams pretested that he »i'
foulad but Before* Goodman did riot
-aj^low it. Williams came from hi*
'*TfO'iter m tho fifth round but soon
rjuit the ring, saving he v»i unable
to fight in his condition. Guerra got
the bout on a technical knockf.it.
Young Tarker. 142 of Fort Frown.

one of tins prettiest boxing lex
i on*, j et Kiiniioi out si tho ; bating
rink. Parker had every thing *n«l
went like a house ablaze the f*r»t
three rounds. His left lashed out
like a whip to tie followed at inter
vals bv a fairly effective right.
Porker** guard was good and ho
ti?d hidel up whenever he came in.
Beth looked haggkrd and worn in
the fourth round but Parker con
tinued his lead. Ho was awarded
the decision by Referee Cioodman.
Tho bout - opened w ith a four
round draw between Kid I.up". 122
12 of San Benito, and hid Solis, 117
of Brownsville. Both were game
little rapier* but the bout calmed
down considerably ef*«*r tho onening
slam-bang free for all around the

BULLDOGS ARE
TO PLAY TAFT
Fast Team to Visit
Valley Jan. 30
And 31
(Special to The Herald)
Me ALLEN. Jan. 29.—The McAllen
Bulldogs will meet the fast Taft
high school Greyhounds in a two
game series at McAllen on Wednes
day and Thursday nights at 7:30 p.
in. The Greyhounds won two hard
fought games from the Bulldogs on :
their home floor last year and the.
Bulldogs are hopeful of turning the
tables this year though they real
ize that the Taft team will probably
be the best that will appear on the
local court this season.
Taft lost to Corpus Christi by a
one-point score last year, but in ’25,
'2d and *27, represented Southwest
Texas in the state tournament. They
have run up a great record this yrar
including victories over the San An
tonio high schools, Cuero, Goliad
and other South Texas teams.
The Bulldogs have lost only one
high school game—that to Weslaco
in their second game, and they have
since defeated Weslaco on their
home court. They lost a hard
fought game to the Edinburg Junior
college, in which they held the
"Rronct” on even terms for the last
three quarters of the game. To add
to the interest in the game Coach
B. C. Davis of Taft and Coach "Jim-i
my” Dykes of McAllen arc both ,
graduates of Texas A. & M. and old
friends. Each ia eager to win over j
the other and the loser is *ure to !
come in for a friendly raising.
The Bulldogs’ court has been fully
equipped with lights, a board floor I
and one thousand seats.
The Hidalgo county tournament
and the district 27 tournament will
both bo played on the Bulldog floor.

Basketball loaches)
Dus to the development and in- |
terest hi the two major games, base
ball and football offensive plays
have long been standardized.
New style basketball is leaning, j
mors than ever before, tovv.ird a 1
standardized offensive. In order to
make the game more aUiactive. as
well as to make goal shooting more \
effective, many styles of offenses j
are in use today.
1 he three-man bard driving, the
four man quick breaking, the five-'
man shuttle guard, the delayed, and
the straight-stall offence*, with
their many variations aro the sum
total of basketball offer, cs in i»e
at present.
Three-Man Hard Driving
This is the general typo of of
fense now in use in the state of In
diana. the mecra of basketball. This
applies to the high school, the inde
pendent end the o liege teens of
that section.
In thi» 11 pc of oilrp, .n ?be resr nr
lark gusrd seldom take* a shot, for
goal. The running or floor guard
is the feeder only unless he hap
pens to be a crack long shot art* t
and finds none of the three offen
sive men open for a pass. General*
ly this guard shoots a pa«s to one
i <»f the trio on offense and ! hey in
Urn tak»* up a hard. rapid dt.ve for
goal.
Four-Man Quick Breaking
Thi< is the general ?y*»* of of
fen»« thet f’nd favor in the west -
idong the Pacifi • < o . t. J* is th*
t.« ne mentioned in wr la t article.
In this offer e the floor guard
figure:: prominently in the play. He
sometimes drives within 25 feet of
the goal for a shot. This is a
stronger offense thin the three man
style, but it materially weakens the
defense.
Five-Man Shuttle Ctuard
This offense employ* either of the I
two guards in conjunction with the I
threw front wall men. The guards
work on a shuttle plan. The rear
guard and the running guard change!
T'aces n* the occasions demand. Al- [
ways the guards work in the mid- j
d'e. not in the center, of the court.
This stv’e obtains in the Big Six
conference and in the Missouri val
ley region.
In both the three-man and the
four-man offenses the guards work
flat nr laterally across the court.
In the five-man shuttle guard of
fense they work longitudinally—one
in front of the other, but bark of
the three front wall men, in all,
forming » Y.
(trlavrd and Flat blall
The flat stall offeree made it»elf
unpopular with the spectators
that, it evolved into a more polite'
form of stalling—the delayed offeri- |
• ire. Now, when a team procures *
small lead, late in the game, this
Hvle of offense is most popular in
all se-tions of the country, with the
po "iblo exception of the far west.
T he flat stall is utterly devoid of
action. It is purelv a defensive
me<*han:«m. The delayed offensive
resembles the flat stall. But it only
lurks for an opportunity to put the t
play on hv means of a quick thrust |
brought about by a floor bounce, a
pa's or a dribble for goal.

ceal the fact that he is more eager to
see their signatures on eontracts
than they are to put them there.

The Comets scorched the Los

th# county elimination contest.
The L! Jard n girl*, ranched by
Charles Smith, arc to play at Ran- j
gerville Friday.
Up around Lockhart, Luling. Gon
zales and Yoakum, basebal fans are
looking forward to some mighty
good games this summer. There is
a movement on foot to form a semi- j
pro league. In days gone by that
neck of the woods produced base
ball talent cf major league ability-!
Last summer a semi-pro circuit
among towns in that part of the
state was formed, and many games'
played, but it was not at all satis
factory.
• • •
As we said in the above para
graph it was a semi-pro league,
with rules governing or »uppn*e |
to govern the circuit. One of the I
laws of the league was that no
paid players were to be had. But
that was where the rub came in. j
There were charges and counter- '
charges among the clubs about
players being paid, etc., with the
result that it became disgusting
to all concerned, except a certain
gambling element that always
hangs around these semi-pro cir
cuits, creating more dissatisfaction
and more unsportsmanlike tactics
of some of those connected with
different clubs than any one thing
else. A good thing for Ynakum.
Lockhart, et al. would be to form
a Class D league.
• « •
This department received a sports
letter from T. C. U. other day, re
garding baseball prospects at the j
Fort Worth institution. Among oth-!
er things the dispatch said that!
Coach cyersM wasn’t worrying about;
his pitching staff, that he had plcn-;
ty of proven materia! in that do- j
partnicnt. Well, we arc glad it ha- j
come to that point in the game of {
baseball whereby a manager or!
coach will and can say that h;sl
hurling corps is all to the merry.
Dutch Meyer is the first and only
coach we have ever heard of as re
ported making that statement. If
he did, then the writer is inclined
to doubt Meyers’ ability as a base- j
ball tactician.

REASON REFEREE

BARRY BARRED?
CHICAGO, Jan, Cli.—t/F}—Da\.e
Barry, Chicago referee, today
wondered whether Michigan plan
ned to bar him from its boxing
rings because he tolled the fa
mous “long count” in the Perop
sey-Tunney bout.
Chairman James Brown of the
Michigan state athletic commis
sion last night announced Barry
would not be allowed to officiate
in Michigan rings, but refused to
give the reason.
“I can hardly believe the so
called ‘long count’ is the cause,”
said Barry, “but if it was because
of a state law requiring one year's
residence in Michigan. I believe
Brown would have said so. Too, I
recalled that Jack Dempsey was
allowed to referee there last June
and he is not or wa3 net a rest- j

1 BLAZING the
I SPORTS TRAIL
By ALAN J. GOl'LD
(Associated Press Sports Editor)
No other single tennis event of
1923 »as so significant to the game's
new era or so interesting to the
public at large as the rise of 17-ycar
old Holm W ills of California to the
national women's championship.
There was some feeling that Mrs.
Molla Rjur-tedt Mallory, the seven
times rhanmion, had come close to
the end of her reign. Her defeat in
the finale was not so unexpected as
was the margin by which Miss Wills (
won at 6-2, 6-1, in something like 33
minutes at the newly opened Forest
Hills stadium.
Even more astonishing, to the ex
ports. wb« the masculine-like power
of the California girls game, the
smashing strokes that marked a dis
tinct turn in the game and which,
after five years, have put Miss Wills
upon a plane nowr generally regarded
ns higher than that once occupied by
Suranne Lenglen. Mrs. Mallory wa*
a hard hitter but never approached •
the all-around power of Miss Wills’ !
game.
Tt is one of the competitive misfor
tunes of tennis that no conclusive
lest ever was had of the respective
abilities of Lenglen and Wills, the
two outstanding stars produced in {
feminine range over the pnsc decade.
The French star won their only en- i
gagement in a hard-fought match but 1
in straight »ots.. 6-3. R-6, on the Ri- |
viera in 1926. hnt this was just before !
the American became ill with appen
dicitis. T cnglen was at her hest at
that time but Mi«* W Hs had not vet
reached the heights she attained in
he seasons of 1927 and 192*. both of
which she breezed through without i
meeting a single defeat in competi
tion at home or abroad. In fact ahe
has lost only one tournament yt in
women's competition in the past two
years, that to (iwynneth Sterry of
England at Wimbledon Jn I9J?.
The poised young women who now i
rules her tennis kingdom was just a
eriou* fared and somewhat nervous;
but determined girl five years ago
when she first sprang to nation.-! I
fame. Only the year before, 19JJ. she
had won the girls’ championship. I
She was not considered yet we it
enough equipped to threaten the long]
and formidable reign of Mrs. Mallory I
but she was nevertheless the home- |
bred hope.

It was not that any of the more en
thusiastic tennis devotees bore any
ill-will toward Mrs. Mallorv but it
was no secret that those in power
yearned to hand the big championship
trophy to a product of American
courts after so long a period of dom
ination by the sturdy and gallant
sportswoman from Norway.
Miss Wills was well guided in her
swift and dramatic rise to the top. •
To h- r father's patien* teaching, she
ascribes her early sevelopment in
that California cradj of tennis that
has turned out Bill Johnston, Helen
Jacobs and so many other stors. The
finishing touches, however, were sp
oiled by the generous tutoring of
Hazel Hotchkiss Wightman. Herself
a former national champion, wife of n
tennis executive, born strategist and
teacher. Mrs. Wightman recognized
!hr rcmarKnhle possibilities in Miss
Will#’ game and sought to develop
them. How well she succeeded w»
quickly ev ident.
