Oct 6. f/P>—New that Earl Whitehill has pitched the Senators back Into the World Set ies scramble with a shutout con quest of the Giants, the “inside story" may be told as to why the American League champions de layed sending their one best fling ing bet to the firing line until the third game. “Whitehill. as most of you fel lows figured, was selected bv Mana ger Joe Cronin to oppose Carl H ib bel1. in the opening game of the series” revealed Clark Griffith, president of the Senators, “but he developed a sore arm for the first time in his life bv bearing down too hard in a workout against the Yankees last week. “We had counted on WhPehi!] to give Hubbell a great duel, posslolv win and put the Giants in % naif i hole at the very outset. Tt was the logical thine for us to do. Hut. he worked Just a bit too long and too MORALES AND CRUZ IN DRAW Johnny Cruz Is as clever as ever, but he got to better than a draw in his ten-round main event with “Gorilla*’ Morales at the Vet Artra Thursday night. This bout. ;i!led with clever action, was the best Brownsville fans have seen since legalised fights made their debut at the Vet arena. Johnny did some masterful blocking with his right hand which many of the fans apparently failed to see. Morales was aggressive and did some clever work but he failed to land a solid punch on the vet eran San Antonio battler. Neither of the boys seemed to be hurt, but they mixed It at a fast pace throughout the 10 stanzas. In the semi-final Jimmv Har well. 141 pound Ft. McIntosh 'ham plon, and Manuel Jaramlllo. 146. Matamoros, battled six rounds to a draw. Jaramlllo. who has won all of his other bouts with kayos, start ed strong, but Hardwell took the closing rounds to even up the score Kid Huerta of Brownsville and Ramon Perez of Matamoros. 120 pounders, drew in a four rounder. Ramiro Munoz of Laredo knock ed out A1 Thomas in the fourth round of the card opener. Munoz floored Thomas in the second, twice in the third and twice in the fourth. &AR.L WMITEHILL hard against the Yankees, After ward hia nrm failed to respond rapidly to treatment, it was bak ed and massaged. He worked care fully the day before the opening game but he wasn’t quite right and we switched to Wally Stewart as the next best man likely to stop the Giants. “As it turned out, Stewart lacked just enough control to be at bis best. A change of pace that lie in tended to travel low sailed high and in the grove for Mel Ott who hit the ball out of the park. “You saw what Whitehill did to Ott as well as Terry, yesterday. He had them handcuffed. Together, they got only one ball out of"the infield." Griffith’s disclosure solves one of the things that has been ousrimg the experts most since the series started; by what devious process did the Senators arrive at their plan of pitching strategy? On the basis of today's evidence, it develops that the strategy was Games Up Friday PLAYGROUND BALL Friday—Elks vs. Veterans, Rotary vs. Eagles. Four clubs in the Brownsville Playground Baseball league will at tempt to improve their standings in games to be played here Friday night. The Elks, anxious to get started, are to battle the Veterans in the , opening contest, while the Rotarians are to take on the Eagles, de fending champions. The Rotarians have added one J. W. (Red* Irvine i to their roster and he will likely I cover the initial sack. 6 — --- Senators’ Star Southpaw Now Must Wait 7th Game all right but that the execution was spoiled by Whitehill's sudden de velopment of a sore arm. “Whitey” has always been known among baseball men as a “rubber arm” pitcher, the kind who could step in to a training camp on the first day and cut loose If he wanted to or bear down without worrying of the consequences. He had enjoyed his greatest year, winning 22 games. Had Whitehill been able to pro duce on the opening day the kind of pitching he showed the Oiants yesterday, the entire complexion of the series would have been chang ed. In all probability he would have beaten Hubbell, whose shaky de fense let !n two runs, and the Sena ters would have enjoyed the stim ulating effect of being "on top." instead of being punched back on their heels so quickly that they did not recover until thrv lost two straight. So what? So the Senators now have a shutout pitcher who prob ably won’t be ready to pitch again unless the series goes the limit of seven games. Instead of having Whitehill on the same “overtime” 'easis as Hubbell, who drew his second assignment for this after noon, the Senators must make an unprecedented rally for the op portunity of playing their ace again It isn’t an alibi now. for the Senators spirits revived, nave strong faith In Deaver. as well as in the ability of Stewart and Crow der to come back and Whitehill to be ready for the finishing ♦ouches. But it still leaves them “in the hole” today, with Hubbel and Schumach er. the two winning pitchers of the Giants, coming up In succession again. FIGHT RESULTS NEW YORK—A1 Roth. 127.

The most important of these will pit two undefeated clubs—the Wes laco Panthers and Mercedes Tigers. The Panthers opened the reason with a victory over the Mission Eagles while the Tigers warmed uo with an easy win at the expense of the Santa Rosa Warriors. The ; Tigers are defending champions and have the further advantage of playing on their home grounds Fri day. The La Feria Lions, who opened the season with a resounding 51-0 victory over Raymondville. will get a real test at Donna Friday. The Lions appear to be one of the lead ing clubs in the “B” race this seas on. Donna opened the year by fall ing before the Rio Hondo contin gent 6-0. McAllen, rated as the outstand ing “B" club, should have little trouble in winning at Edlnf^Trg. The Bulldogs gave the fans a Jolt last week by trouncing the Har Ungen Cardinals.

It’s one of the most popular phrases used in present day in struction—and one that does much to handicap the player in making his swing. The wrists should unbend dur ing the downswing, but any con scious effort on your part to main them unbend will only upset you swing a* a whole. Bend your wrists properly u the backswing and if you keei your chin back, you'll get th proper wrist action in your down swing. SILENCE SHROUDS DANTE BY ORDER OF DICE RAVENNA, Italy (AV- Musso lini's project to surround Dante’s tomb with a "zone of silence" has been put into effect here. The premier ordered that all traffic should be diverted from streets around the great poet's resting place and that unsightly buildings marring its monumental effect should be removed. The program involves tearing out a number of old dwellings. The Idea of the zone of silence originated in a popular fascist slo gan that only n Duce himself could speak of the poet In big enough terms .

EAGLES MEET I HOUNDS TODAY Brownsville Club Showing Lola of Power In Practice The '33 edition of the Browns ville Screaming Eagles, a club which has shown much promise in practice, was to make its debut at 3:30 p. m. Friday on Tucker Field with ancient foes, the San Benito | Greyhounds, furnishing the op position. The Brownsville club, relatively inexperienced, has been grinding away for three weeks and is now in good condition. The eleven has not1 begun to click smoothly as a unit, but even with some ragged play I the club has shown power in scrim- | mage. John Cooper, a big back who can run, plunge, kick and pass. Is the key man m the backfield. However, the club still runs smoothly with Louis Fernandez, Billy Putegnat, Bill Blanton and Jack Ellington forming the backfield. Putegnat is developing into a blocker de luxe. Blanton is hard to snag in an open field and Fernandez and Ellington have speed to burn. The Eagle line is a low-charging scrappy unit which should give the Hounds a busy afternoon. San Benito has the advantage of one victory over the Edinburg Bob cats. The Hounds are likely to flash an aerial attack In offsetting the scatting ability of the Browns ville backs. Girls’ Baseball Title Up Friday f Special to The Herald) PHARR.

MONTERREY TO BATTLE MIKE Main Even At Harlingen Friday Appears To Be Good Scrap (Special to The Herald) HARLINGEN, Oct. 0.—The main •vent at the Legion Arena here Fri day night, pitting Mike JMartinea against Kid Monterrey, has the ear marks or a real scrap. Martinet put up an excellent ex hibition in his first appearance by decisionlng Dick Wymore, a free swinger. He tried hard in his second fight, but his bout with Jimmy Azareila. a defensive boxer, did not prove so satisfactory to the fans. Taking all of this into considera tion. the management has matched Martinet against another free swinger—Kid Monterrey. Tlielr styles are expected to click togeth er in such a manner aa to give the fans plenty of action. In his last start Martinet got a draw with Azareila, while Monterrey was splitting a decision with Dick Wymore.
