BERG’S GRIT

Englishman’s Strong Come
Back After Fouls
Wins Bout
NEW YORK. April 5—<JP>—Jack
• Kid) Berg, English lightweight, has
given an amazing display of cour
age for the benefit of the same
metropolitan fans who watched Phil
Scott, British heavyweight, take
what they thought was an "out” in
his battle with Otto Von Porat here
last December.
Floored twice by low punches in
the eighth round of his ten-round
bout with Joe Glick at Madison
Square Garden last night, Berg got
up to carry ihe fight to his opponent
and earn the unanimous decision
of the Judges and referee.
Berg, a front-rank contender for
the lightweight title and holder, at
the same time, of the somewhat
synthetic junior welterweight crown,
was leading on points after the
first seven rounds. Glick had put
up a great fight in the first three
rounds but *ired badly thereafter,
in the eighth. Berg was smashed
to the floor by a left hook that was
palpably low. As Berg came to his
feet at the count of seven, Glick
smashed him again with another
low left. Ber* got up and flew at
Glick like a wildcat and soon had
the one-time Brooklyn pants press
er groggy ard bleeding from cuts
over both eyes.

In Valley

‘Special to The Herald)
HARLINGEN. April 5— In the best
Valley game this season, a horde of
Pirates swarmed over the sides of
tlr ball park here yesterday and
when the dust had settled had de
feated the Valley All-Stars 3-2.
Brame, Pittsburgh star, twirled a
heady game for the visitors and
scattered hits in such a manner
that he got into trouble but once
That was in the fifth inning when
runs. Brame and Erickson together
allowed but eight hits. Cano and
Arvin for the Valley team allowed
‘ seven hits.
The high spot of the game was
Paul Waner. slugging outfielder. Al
though he got but one hit, Paul made
a good impression on the 500 fans
in the stand. He walked the first
; time up, flew out to left field and
i cracked out a single in his last at
; tempt.
Ira Flagstead. veteran outfielder.
I came in for considerable attention
| also. He attempted to play second
i the closing innings and booted
I two out of three chances. The age
| ing player made several beautiful
throws from the outfield.
Ogelsby of the All-Stars was the
| best hitter of the day. He cracked
out three hits in four trips to the j
platter.

It’« a Game
DETROIT. April 5—/ffruT1J<>h"
Herman was three up on himself
in an absorbing game of traffic
golf yesterday when he whiffed
and the cop got him.
Traffic golf, It was explained. Is
a simple but exciting pastime for
the motorist who drives to work each
morning through rows of traffic
lights. If a gTeen light is passed
without stopping, the driver is one
up” and If a red light calls a halt
he is penalized one, Just as in
match golf play. The game resolves
itself Into seeing how many green
lights one can pass without stop
ping for the red signal.
A "whiff”, it developed. Is count
ed when the driver crosses an the
yellow signal and things happen
just like they did to Mr. Herman.

GARDNER WELCOMED AS NEW
PRESIDENT OF TEXAS LEAGUE
(By The Associated Press)
President Gardner of the Texas
League was proud today, after be
ing dined and spoken about by
more than 200 baseball fans, league
officials and sports writers at a
dinner In his honor given by the
Wichita Falls Chamber of Com
merce. With four more days to go
before starting on the pennant
race, the new president was offi
cially welcomed to the league helm.
Saturday's encounter between the
Dallas Steers and the New York
Yankees was the most interesting
tilt on the program for the week
end. Included In the New York
roster was Babe Ruth and his
home run hitting twin. Lou Gehrig,
giant first saeker. as well as such
stars as Mark Koenig. Tony L»z
zerl Waite Hoyt. Herb Pennock and
George Pipgras.
Atz to Start Vet
Jake Atz. manager of the Steers,
expected to start his veteran south
paw. Dave Danforth. Oliver Mit
chell. another portsider, and Louie
Garland, husky right hander ac
quired this week from the Chicago
White Sox, also expected to see ac
tion.
The Yanks Friday continued
thetr parade through minor league
opposition with a 10 to 6 victory
over the Fort Worth Cats. While
Pennock and Pipgras were scatter
ing the Texans' 12 hits in all but
the sixth inning. The Yankees
oounded three hurlers for 14 safe
ties.
There no longer was anv doubt
today as to who would be the reg
» " ” " 1 . .1
ular third baaeman for th« San
Antonio Indians this year. That
question was answered by announce
ment that Jodie Tate had been re
leased to Bridgeport. Conn., of the
Eastern League. As a result, the Job
at the hot corner goes to Franklin
McCullough, heavy hitting Infield
er, awarded to the Indians on option
bv the Bridgeport club.
The Wichita Falls Spudders were
headed for Oklahoma City for a
windup spring exhibition series
there Saturday and Sunday with
the western leaguers.
Boffa Down Pirates
The Houston Buffs took a 6 to 5
game Friday from the Pittsburgh
Pirates, due to a sizzling triple to
deep right from centerfield by
Frank Hall, rookie outfielder, in the
tenth Inning.
Albert Williamson, who probably
will be delegated to crack the sea
son for the Shreveport Sports, held
Minneapolis to six hits and two
runs for the first six innings, but
those two runs were fatal, the Sports
being held scoreless in a 2 to 0
defeat.
Charlie Stuvengen with five hits
In five trips to the plate, including
two homers, led the way when the
Waco Cubs defeated the Baylor
Bears 13 to 4. Manager Del Pratt
announced the outright release of
Isey Banrimer. second baseman.
The Beaumont Exporters took an
easy 12 to 2 game from the Lake
Charles Newporters at Orange.
Chick Shivers led the Exporter bat
ting attack with a single, triple and j
homer, in four times up.

Sick headache, chills, fever,
