Well Balanced Card to Get
Under Way at 8 p . m.
In Vet Ring
No longer shadowed by the
frown of the law, legalized boxing
will take its opening bow in the
Vet Arena here Thursday night
after being delayed three weeks by
th hurrican.
The* card, headlined by Bill Cab
ler, Brownsville middleweight, and
Jack Doss, Austin veteran, is sched
uled to get under way at 8 p. m.
It has been fully ten years since
a boxing card was openly presented
in Brownsville as officials have
backed up the anachronistic anti
boxing law. Heretofore fights have
been staged in Ft. Brown on Uncle
Samuel’s lands where the state of
ficials had neither yea nor nay.
Doss After Revenge
The initial fight card appears
well balanced on paper. The main
event is to be a battle between an
up-and-coming youngster, Cabler,
and a wiley veteran, Doss, over the
ten-round battle. Including his
amateur fights, Cabler has engaged
in 11 scraps, winning seven of them
with knockouts. Last week he
gained valuable ring experience by
going eight rounds with Manuel
Zermeno, who claims the Mexican
middleweight crown abdicated by
Tommy White.
Doss, said to be in top condition,
•cored a quick success in Corpus
•Christi Monday by shellacking
^"Chato” Garza, Nueces county’s
outstanding contribution to pugil
ism. In his prime Doss fought the
top-notchers, taking on Rocky
Kansas on several occasions, ac
cording to the information in his
scrap book.
Cabler will probably be out to
make a good showing, for he has
announced this will be his last
fight. Due to the fact he is a
county traffic officer and must work
up to early morning hours patrol
ling the highways, his handlers
say it is almost impossible for him
to get into top condition. “I’m go
ing through with this fight,” Cab
ler says, “but Im not going to fight
again until I am certain I am in
top shape.”
Delgado vs. Morales
All of which is music to Doss’
thick ears. Jack lost a bout to
Cabler about a year and a half ago.
Suffering from an infected ear
and Jaw, Jack was forced to quit in
the fifth round, conceding a t. k. o.
Now in top form, Doss feels cer
tain that he will be able to reverse
the proceedings.
Should the main event lack the
action demanded by the fans, the
aix-rounders should fill the bill
for they include everything from
rank sluggers to clever touch-and

Giants Enjoying Good Laugh
At Expense of Experts, Fans
NEW YORK, Sept. 21.—(JP)—'The
champion New York Giants came
back to their own battle ground
today to receive the belated roar
of the metropolitan crowd, still
somewhat dazed by this season's
rapid decline of the once-dominant
Yankees and the equally startling
rise of Bill Terry’s lads.
It’s an old saying that New York
or any place else loves a winner.
Win or lose under the old regime
of John McGraw, the Giants al
ways were the best drawing card
in the National league, but it wasn’t
until the 1933 club hit the home
stretch, lengths in front, that the
crowds began to drift toward
Coogan’s Bluff.
Cold Shoulder
They were frankly derisive in
the spring when the Giants got
away galloping. They were still
skeptical in midsummer when it be
rush which features a nifty left.
Delgado’s long suit is a left jab
whiclr he calculates will spear
Morales aplenty if he adopts rush
ing tactics. This is the bout that
should produce clever boxing.
Popular Prices
Another six rounder pits "Soldier
Jack" Burns, Ft. Brown light
heavyweight who has been cam
paigning successfully in this section
for three years, against K. O.
Brown, a Luling slugger. Bums’
best blow is a wide overhand right
which turns out the lights for his
Emilio Zavala. Brownsville wel
ter who has been forging steadily
to the front, is slated to take on
Kid Olivares of Donna. Zavala
wowed Corpus Christi fans by get
ting a draw with “Chato” Garza
several weeks ago.
The card is rounded out by a
bout between Bat Ancira and Kid
Torreon, a pair of flashy light
weights operating out of Laredo.
Popular prices will prevail.
came apparent the team was in
the thick of the fight to stay.
Even the so-called “experts” are
convinced now. But Bill Terry
won’t let them forget the harsh
things they said and the abrupt
way they relegated the reconstruct
ed Giants to the second division
last April.
Affter the show is all over, we
will give a dinner for the baseball
boys and make them eat a lot of
those words they threw at me and
the rest of the club last spring,”
laughed the Giants’ manager. “I’ll
be the toastmaster and will I have
some fun.”
The fact is only one out of 82
baseball writers, polled last spring,
was rash enough to predict the
Giants would win the pennant.
Double Smash
Not only did Charles (Mike)
Houston, then (Hi the staff of the
New York Evening Post, name the
Giants to cop the National League
pennant but he selected the Wash*
ington Senators to displace the
Yankees. The young man thus
awarded a double crown for his
psychic powers is now the sports
editor of the Richmond (Va.)
Only five others participating in
the Associated Press annual poll
picked the Giants to finish as high
as third. Three were Philadelphia
Writers, Bill Brandt, Herb Jaspan
and Ross Kauffman. The others
were Charles E. Parker of the New
York World Telegram and Will
Wedge of the New York Sun. For
that matter, only one Washington
expert, John B. Keller of the star,
selected the Senators to - beat out
the Yankees.

Washington Needs One More
Contest to Clinch
(By The Associated Press)
Delayed by a belated rush of the
New York Yankees and by their
own failure to win a couple of
games from the last-place St. Louis
Browns, the Washington Senators
were still waiting at the door of
pennantland today.
The Senators were only one
game away from a mathematical
certainty today after snapping their
brief losing spell with a 13 to 5
triumph over the Browns yester
day. They could clinch the flag
this afternoon wit hanother triumph
over St. Louis or by winning any
one of the next six contests. But
they still hadn’t succeeded in shak
ing off the Yankees.
Yanks Streaking
Once they were counted out of
the race in actual if not mathe
matical terms, the Yanks eased up
in their efforts and promptly be
gan to play better ball. When
they defeated the Chicago White
Sox by a 5-3 count yesterday, it
was their 13th victory against two
defeats and a tie in their last 16
The Senators, meanwhile, got
back on the pennant trail by
whacking Ed Wells and Roland
Stiles for seven runs in the third
inning after getting a 2-0 lead in
the first, and finishing off with
four more in the fourth to com
plete their scoring before A1 Crow
der gave the Browns a run.
The triumphs of the two con
tenders left the Yankees a mathe
maitcal chance of taking the title
but only if they win all the eight
games they have left and the Sen
ators lose seven straight. This
would put them in a virtual tie at
the finish with the Yankees, play
ing fewer games, a point ahead. A
single Senator triumph or Yankee
defeat would assure Washington of
a half-game margin.
Grove’s 93rd
Lefty Bob Grove, the Philadelphia
ace, trailed right behind Crowder
in the victory column, chalking up
No. 23 at the expense of the De
troit Tigers in a duel with Carl
Fischer. The score was 2-1 as
Grove proved the more effective in
the pinches although the A’s were
outhit 8-5.
Only one game was on the Na
tional league program as the New
York Giants, newly crowned cham
pions, led the easter nteams back
to their home sector. The Brooklyn
Dodgers stopped off at Pittsburgh
and took a 3 to 0 trimming from
the second place Pirates in a game
that previously had been rained
Babe to Hurl
NEW YORK. Sept. 21.—C/P)—
Babe Ruth, who changed lever
from a pitcher to an outfielder
some years ago when his legs were
more limber and his bat more
effective, is going back to pitching
again—but just for one day. The
Babe has asked and received per
mission from Manager Joe Mc
Carthy to pitch the Yankees final
game of the season against the
Boston Red Sox. He says he will
be in there the full nine innings.
Backstop Taken
Members of the Brownsville Play
ground Baseball league are threat
ening to call in Sherlock Holmes,
Detective O’Malley or Arsine Lupin.
Fact of the business is someone,
intentionally or through some
gross error, has made off with the
league’s backstop. It is hard to
understand how anyone could take
a backstop through mistake, but
league officials are willing to take
it back with no questions asked.
CHICAGO—Jack Sharkey, 126,
Minneapolis, outpointed Young
Geno, 126 1-2, La Salle, 111., (10).
ST. LOUIS—A1 Stillman, 171, St.
Louis, knocked out Battling Bozo,
182, Birmingham, Ala., (8). Terry
Qhanion, 119, Chicago, and Tony
Vivano, 119, St. Louis, drew (8).
Fast Moving San Antonio
Nine Defeats
Pels 3-1
Tne San Antonio Missions and the
New Orleans Pelicans, Texas league
and Southern association baseball
champions, will resume their seven
game series here tonight on Tech
Field with San Antonio holding a
one-up margin. The Missions won
the opening game last night when
Fabian Kowalik, crack Mission
right hander, scattered eight Pel
hits in all but the fourth frame to
win 3 to 1 over Andy Messenger.
The teams will play three games
here and finish as many of the
seven games as are necessary in
New Orleans beginning Sunday.
All games in New Orleans will be
day games.
While the New Orleans club may
be at some disadvantage playing
night baseball, the Missions are ex
pected to be at top form in day
light, since a large part of the
local season was played without
The Missions bunched four of
their eleven hits for a pair of runs
in the second, and hit a pair of two
baggers with two out in the fifth
for the other.
The victory made It eight out of
ten for the Missions since the sea
son closed and the playoff started.
Fabian Kowalik, who has Started
all three series, won his third start
ing assignment and his fourth
straight post-season victory. Kow
alik has now won 25 games for the

expected to take the mound for the
Missions tonight. Galehouse wHl

Vines Defeated
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21.——
Ellsworth Vines ended a disastrous
tennis season in the tournament
from which he started his rise to
international heights.
After driving to match point in
the quarter-finals of the Pacific
southwest singles yesterday, the
tall Pasadena youth suddenly broke
and dropped seven straight games
and the match to Jack Tidbail,
national intercollegiate champion.
The other two quarter-final
matches ran true to form. Fred
Perry, England’s Davis cup star,
easily defeated John Van Ryn of
the American Davis cup team, 6-1,
6-3. Lester Stoefen, Los Angeles
giant, turned back Ryosuke Nunoi,
Young Japanese star, 6-4. 6-4.
