Donna Established As Big
Favorite to Tako
A drizzling rain, which began
Thursday night and which was con
tinuing Friday morning, threatens
to slow down the Tucker Field track
here Saturday when about 150 ol
the Valley's best high school ath
letes gather lor tine annual district
If the rain continues through
Friday, there Is a possibility of the
meet being postponed or removed
to some other Valley point where
rain has been light.
If the rain stops Friday morning,
the f.eld will be in fair condition
for the big athletic session which
will be under the direction of Claude
Dailey of Mission.
It was doubt iul Friday morning
whether the Tennis preliminaries,
slated for Friday afternoon, could
be held on the school and Fort
Brown courts as planned.
The track meet, in A’hich the
Donna Redskins have been installed
as top-heavy favorites, will get un
der way Saturday morning at 9:30
with preliminary events.
The finals will get under way at
Lp. m. and will continue through
out 5 p. m.
The Donna Redskins, paced by a
great quarter miler in Martin Stu
art. have rolled up a strong record
this season, and they are almost
certain to unseat the Rio Hondo
high Bobcats, the defending district
champions. Few records, particular
ly in view of the slow field, wiH be
Ei danger Saturday. Stuart might
better his own district record of 53
seconds flat In the 440, and there Is
a chance of San Benito's relay rec
ord of 3:38 going by the boards.
According to the dopesters, the
Issues are clean cut in the district
race. Martin Stuart of Donna Is
favored to win all the sprints,
Bla< k of Rio Hondo is doped to take
the 880. tine mile belongs to Beryl
Baker of La Feria, Marrs of Stuart
Place Is certain to win the discus
and Putegnat of Brownsville should
win the high hurdles. Black of Rio
Hondo also should win the Javelin.

as follows:
a. m.—Preliminaries in the
B9-b>gh hurdles.
9:30—Finals in 12-pound shot put.

here Saturday, ventures the predic
tion that the Donna, Redskins will
win the title, Weslaco will finish
second. Mission third and La Ferla
Claude, who was coach at Donna
before he went to Mission, has been
watching high school track In this
section for many a year and he Is
about as well qualified to pick the
winners as anyone you might name
He even makes so bold as to issue
predictions as to individual place

(/p>—‘■•Dixie” Howell, his skull frac
tured by a batted ball, lay In a
Lynchburg hospital Friday “resting
comfortably and apparently not
seriously Injured.”
The Detroit Tiger rookie and
former University of Alabama foot
ball star was Injured while warm
ing up Thursday for a practice
He will be in the hospital at
least two weeks, attendants said.
Howell's Injury came an hour
and a half before the opening of
a game between the Tigers and the
Cincinnati Reds of the National
With a group of teammates, he
was wanning up on the right
field foul line, not far from first
base. As the Detroiters passed a
ball around Johnnie Mize, Cincin
nati first baseman, stepped to the
plate and smashed out a terrific
line drive down the baseline.
The ball struck Howell on the
right temple. He was carried un
conscious from the field.
At the hospital, Dr. John W. De
fine said It would be lmpossble
for several days to determine
whether there was a skull depres
Should one be found, an opera
tion to lessen the pressure on the
brain will be necessary.

Jimmy Braddock. a 1000-to-l shot

In June.
Formal announcement ii.it
Braddock has agreed to terms for
a title match Is expected Monday
when, under the terms of its con
tract with Baer, the Garden must
select an opponent for the cham
Although Jimmy Johnston avoid
ed any comment that could be
construed as indicating an agree

understood the Garden had met
Braddock's demand for 17*1 per

for a holdover clause in the con
tract by which the Jersey veteran
would be obligated to make his
first title defense under Oarden

YE SPADE begs leave to enter a
few dissenting votes. He does not
hink that the century will be an all
Hidalgo affair, for sureiy Parker of
San Benito. Stoddard of La Feria,
McDavitt of Brownsville or Quin
tero of Brownsville can break into
the scoring. Stuart of Donna is slat
ed to win and Jackson of Weslaco
might be second, but those Cameron
sprinters will give Friesen of Mission
and Morrison oi Weslaco a real run
for their money.
If Black of Rio Hondo elects to
run the 440. which would be a more
or less foolish move in view of the
fact that Martin Stuart, the defend
ing All-Time Valley quarter mile
champion is back, he will finish
ahead of Friesen, Groves and Park
Black has the 880 in the bag as
indicated by Dailey, but we submit
that Clifton Schrieber of Browns
ville will place by edging Chestnut
and Stoddard down the list.
Brownsville has four good quarter
milers and if they can pa's the stick
sucessfully Saturday they will fin
ish better than fourth as predicted
by Dailey. In a meet here, the Eagles
lost to the San Benito relay team by
a gnat's eye-browT after losing no less
than 50 yards on passing the stick.
Unless Stooksberry and Ashworth
run their best races of the season
Billy Putegnat of Brownsville, the
defending district champion. Is cer
tain to finish better than the third
in the high hurdles, as indicated by
Claude picks Putegnat to win the
low hurdles, but Billy is net entered
in that event—his specialty is the
tall timbers. Louis Fernandez will
carry Brownsville colors In the lows
and he should place.
Again building up the Eagles, we
believe that Barrera will finish bet
ter than fourth in the shot. Under
the coiching of Bob Celaya, who
holds the All-Time Valley district
-ecord in this event, Barrera has
developed rapidly this season. He is
heaivnp the 1-pound shot around 43
feet consistently.
Daily forgets to mention those
Willacy county boys In the broad
Jump Haygood of Lyford and Denv
er cl Ramondville are likely to place
and Billy McDavitt of Brownsville
also has a good chance.
But all In all. you’ll go a long way
before you get a better estimate of
the field than the one turned in by

Before Quitting
NEW YORK. April 12. (A*)—A lit
tle stock-taking on the glamorous
20-year American League reign ol
Babe Ruth as he prepares to shift
his big bat to the National League
and perhaps starts another chapter
in the saga of making life miserable
for pitchers:
Baseball’s all-time home run king
was belted out 723 home runs—708
in pennant campaigning and 15 in
world series warfare. The total is
just 27 shy of his life time goal of
750. Sixteen of the licks came with
the bases loaded.
Pitchers contributing to the car
nage numbered 218. The Babe poled
498 round trippers off right-hand
ed hurlers. Southpaw's were slapped
225 times.
Next to New York, where the Babe
sent 346 drives soaring over the pal
ings at the Polo Grounds and Yan
kee Stadium, the Philadelphia Park
was Ruth's favorite. He trotted
around the bases there 68 times. De
troit was good for 59 homers and
Boston and St. Louis each, provided
Washington was his Jinx town
The Babe found the range there only
34 times.
Rube Walberg. now of the Boston
Red Sox. is president of the "Babe
Ruth club.” composed of the 218
pitchers who have contributed to
Ruth’s official home run record.
Walbearg, although a southpaw,
was Ruth’s victim no less than 17
times. George Dauss. a right-hander
formerly with the Detroit Tigers
was nicked 14 times, bringing him
the vice presidency.
Seven members of the "Babe Ruth
Club” since have transferred to the
National League and will be in line
for promotion when the firing starts
next week.

RICHMOND. Va—The Giants
have seen a lot of out of the way
places in the south during their cur
rent exhibition Jaunt with Cleve
land. but they have discovered a way
of reducing the costs of spring
training. Visits to five towns which
had never seen major league ball
before produced a total attendance
of about 26 .COO.
RICHMOND, Va.—Hal Troaky.
slugging nrst baseman of the Cleve
•anci Indians, hasn't had much
trouble with the New York Giants
pitching staff this spring. Trosky.
leading the Indians in hitting with
a .366 average, has made 15 hits for
i total of 26 bases In the series with
the Giants.
CHICAGO—Charlie Grimm and
Jimmy D.vk:es. managers respective
ly of Chicago's cubs and White Sox.
hauled out their top pitching tal
ent Friday for resumption of the
spring city series.
Grimm named Lonnie Wameke,
while Dykes assigned Les Tietje. The
Sox won both previous games of the
series, played a month ago at Los
Angeles. They will meet again Sat
urday and Sunday.
Pure water, if absolutely calm,
will not freeze as quickly as agi

several degrees below the freezing
point without congealing, but a
slight shaking will cause it to solid

What's good (or major league
ball players is good for the
president of the National
League, too, figured Ford Frick,
head of the loop. So he stopped
off at Catalina Island on the
way back from a trip to the
Panama Canal Zone, and tested

ramp of the Chicago Cuba. Hare
