Locals Hope to Reverse
Early Defeat; Tilt Is
At San Benito
(Special to The Herald)
SAN BENITO. Dec. 9—Out for
P revenge for a hard-fought narrow
loss earlier in the season, the
Brownsville high school Screaming
Eagles wJl come here Monday night
for a test against the San Benito
Greyhounds in a charity benefit
The Eagles, who finished third
in District 16-A. are anxious to
wipe out the blot of San Benitos
©nr-touchdown win over them in
a regularly scheduled fray. The
Hounds, w'ho finished second to the
undefeated Donna Redskins in the
Valley ’ B’ grid chase, will be out
to prove that their earlier win was
no fluke.
The Eagle* will have two "all
‘A’ District’’ players to toss at the
opposition — Xavier Quintero at
halfback and Raul Garcia at cen
ter—and the Hounds have five "all
‘B’ District" performers to toss in
to the fray. Captain Letter p.irker
placed at left tackle and Jim Also
brook at left guard on the first
team, while Ray Hill at right
guard. Howard Kennedy at quar
t - back and Kan Morgan at full
back made the second squad.
The Eagles feel that their loss
to San Benito was due to their
being thrown off halance just
fore the game when it became
known that Co-Captain Louis Fer
nandez. erstwhile balance wheel of
the squad, was ill from a touch of
ptomaine and would not be able
to play. There is a chance that
Fernandez will get Into the fray
Monday night.
The San Beni tans, on the other
hand, welcome the opportunity to
piav against the Eagles at full
strength. The San Benitans have
beaten the Eagle with great reg
ularity during recent years, al
though the margins always have
been small.
A large turnout of fans Is expect
ed for this game—the last one of
the season for Cameron county j
fans. The cvher games—the Donna
regional fray with Kenedy and the
Pre-Centennial combat between
all-star aggregations—will be play

NEW YORK. Dec. 9. The
Amateur Athletic Union of the
United States emerged Monday
from the bitterest battle of its 47
year history, on record as support

the 1935 Olympic games in Ger
many. but with the war by no means
Although Irrevocably pledged to
go through with the American |
Olympic program, the A. A. U.
nevertheless remained wide open
by an issue that is still very much
alive, stirred by religious as well as
racial controversy. It threatens to
curtail sharply this country's part;
in the eleventh Olympiad.
Proof was promptly forthcoming
that neither oratorical guns nor
be.llots killed off the m .in issue
Sunday, when the closing session
of the A. A. U. convention turned
down 54 1-4 to 55 3-4 a compromise
proposal to send a fact-finding
commission of three men to Ger
many before going ahead with
American plans to compete.
Subsequent unopposed adoption
of a resolution supporting the
Olympics, qualified only by a strong
denunciation of the nazi govern
ment’s athletic policies, merely
widened the breach within the
ranks of A. A. U. delegates.
Jeremiah T. Mahoney of New
York, who yielded the A. A. U.
presidency to Avery Brundage of
Chicago, head of the American
Olympic committee, after witness
ing the defeat of all his efforts to
keep the organization out of the
Olympics, declared in effect that
he has "just begun to fight "

he would continue "the fight

only way of preserving the Olvmpic 1
He charged the American Olympic
committee was at raid to "face the
facts concerning existing conditions
in Germany and called for undi
minished opposition to holding the
games under nazi auspices.
Brundage. restored to dual lead
ership as the most powerful figure
in American amateur sport after a
year’s interval, hailed the outcome
of the A. A. U. battle as a “victory
for the amateur athletes of Amer- .
The Chicagoan, a former national
all-around athletic champion, im
mediately called for “full-speed
ahead" in a drive to have the
United States fully represented in
both the winter and summer
Brundage conceded that the1
financial condition of the American i
Olympic committee, which seeks
$300,000 for maximum representa
tion In Germany, is “desperate.”
He outlined to the executive
committee of the A. O. C. last
night his proposals for a nation
wide drive to raise funds and to
offset the expected non-coopera
tion of those antagonistic to Ger
ms ny.
Meanwhile, most of the particip
ants pirked for the winter Olympic
snores are arranging successfully to
finance themselves.
