Bowie Race Track, Md., April 2 Bowie's feature race of the afternoon, the District Line Purse, furnished one of the biggest upsets of the meet-ing when Morsel, heavily supported at a short price, suffered defeat when Dr. J. F. Adams's Pegg's Pride beat him to the finishing line by two lengths and a half. The District Line was a dash of six furlongs and was run as the fifth race. There were six starters and a long delay at the post ensued, caused TTincinallv by Essare, who refused to join his field, and when he did he kept breaking through the barrier. He finally was taken to the extreme outside and after a delay of 13 minutes. Starter MUton got them aligned and sent them away to a good break. , , Aziz led in the early stages, but after they had gone a quarter Peggs Pride moved up and joined him.

Carey, Of Madison Square Garden, Impressed With Stadium Plans Match Carded July 3. Cleveland. April 2 (AP) Cleve land's new $3,000,000 stadium will be the scene of the heavyweight title match between W. L. Strlbling and Max Schmeling, it virtually was de cided tonight. The date has been set for July 3. E. C. Wetten, of the Madison Square Garden Corporation of Illi nois, which is staging the fight, said, following conferences with Stadium Manager George Bender today, that "Cleveland virtually has been selected as the site of the forthcoming match Numerous details, however, remain to be worked out, Mr. Wetten said, adding that formal announcement would be made late at Chicago by Shelden Clark, President of the Mi nois Madison Square Garden Cor poration. There was some hitch between Bender and the promoters over who would stand expenses of construction of temporary seats and other "neces sary equipment" to stage the fight, These, it was believed, would be Ironed out before the party, includ ing Max Carey, of the New York Madison Square Garden Corporation, and Joe Jacobs, manager of Schme ling, leave for Chicago tomorrow. Mr. Carey paid: "We are greatly Impressed with the set-up of the new stadium, as it meets the needs in regard to seats more nearly than anything we ever have seen. When we first came to Cleveland we had no thought of staging the match any where other than Chicago, but an in spection of the stadium today changed the picture entirely and if we can work out some minor details the match will come here. I feel no hesi tancy in saying Cleveland has the match." The stadium now under construc tion is expected to be completed by the middle of June. Its normal seat ing capacity is 100,000, but tentative plans call for the construction of 20,000 additional seats on the field, Columbus. Ohio, April 2 (AP) Bushy Graham, Utlca, N.

As Hope Of Senators It looks like Heinle Manush must lengthen those drives this season If the Washington Senators hope to capture the American League pennant. The big outfielder who, along with Alvin Crow-der, righthander, came to the Senators last year in exchange for Goose Goslin, appears to be the natural candidate to do the team's Ifeavy blasting. HEINIE MANUSH The Senators, with the,lr neat but not gaudy hitters, need one long-distance clean-up clouter. Back in 1924 and 1925, the club's championship days, Goslin filled the role. However, last year Manush failed to supply the need after he joined the club. Though his batting average was 350, Manush drove home but 94 runs, while Goslin with a mark or .60S, sent 138 runs scurrying across the plate. Joe Cronin, shortstop, lurmsnea most effective hitting for the Senators last season, driving home 126 runs. However, it is doubtful that Cronin can maintain the pace.

John ston announced today. Sharkey's opponent will be named April 15, from a list composed of Tommy Loughran, Victorio Campolo and Mickey Walker. Walker will be acceptable to the New York Com mission on condition he relinquishes his middleweight championship, and this Walker is prepared to do. Campolo also is a lively possibility, as the Giant Argentinian is prepared to sever relations with the Madison Square Garden Corporation. The contract held by the Garden calls for guarantees of $20,000 and $40,000 for his next two fights, and Johnston believes the Garden will drop him rather than risk that kind of money. Loughran ha3 sent word from Chi cago that he is still a free agent and that he would like to be considered for the match. - William F. Carey. President of Madison Square Garden, is expected tomorrow from Chicago, and it is believed he will formally announce the site of the Schmeling-Strlbllng match. "FATHEE BILL" DALY DIES. Familiar Figure On Eastern Tracks Passes 92 Years Old. New York, April 2 (US) "Father Bill" Is dead. William Daly, one of the mostplorful figures on the turf for 70 years, died at his Brooklyn home this afternoon. He was 92 years old and until recently was familiar figure on Eastern tracks. "Father Bill" was noted chiefly as trainer of jockeys. Among the riders he developed were Snapper Garrison. Fred Tarol and Jimmy Mc Laughlin. Daly's name was adopted as a racing expression. Jockevs were often told to do a Bill Daly," which meant to get out in front and stay there. Jjaiy s creed was: Git out there. Stay there. Ana if yer horse starts quitting, thin ride like the devil." He was often heard to remaric oi nrnnent-dav riders: "Thlm blys don t nae hks uiy used to ride 'em. . "Father Bill" was born m ireiana, He was eight years old when he arrived in America and by the time he was 17 he was well known on the tracks. Funeral services wm oe con ducted Saturday.

Dr. Bernard Schwartz, attending physician, reported that Heilmann has made rapid progress in recovering from his recent attack and the slugger is now able tc move his right arm and fingers. He has passed considerable time limbering up" the stiffened muscles and tendons with the aid of pressing a rubber ball, and should his progress continue Heilmann might be able to resume regular duties In the Red outfield sooner than previously antici pated.

Cosyright. 1931, by The Associated PressJ South Bend, Ind, April 2 (AP) Understanding, an infectious spirit of camaraderie and sparkling humor. Those attributes, rather than the mastery of football technique, carried Knute Rockne to the heights of sportsmanship that few have ever reached or may ever reach again. He knew his football probably like no one knew it Yet, my experience with him convinces me that the spark of his genius was a mere incident He succeeded' as he did, he endeared himself because he was a pal and a NHJ U Some CoeC In the afternoon, according to Catho lic canon, it will be held later.

Efforts tonight were being made CAUSE Of Crash Is Learned. Propeller Probably Wrenched Wing Through Vibration, Aeronautics Board Announces Statement Of Findings, How-" ever, Is Not Official. Washington, April 2 (AP)--EvI- dence that the death plane of Knute Rockne and seven others crashed after the right propeller had broken and probably wrenched a wing asun der by. vibratlon 'was made public tonight by the aeronautics branch of the Department of Commerce. A statement. of the findings of the branch's investigators In their study of the wreck and talks with eye- witneses was given out not as an official finding. Digging out the engines, , which were buried deeply in mud, inspectors reported they found that the right outboard engine had no propeller blades or hub, though the safety nut which holds them in place still was at the end of the engine crankshaft. The inspectors concluded one blade had broken off, probably because piece of ice formed on the hub. The remaining blade, unbalanced and rapidly revolving, would have subjected the wing to a load which tests have shown to be in excess of 100,000 pounds. Between two and three minutes elapsed between the time the plane last reported by radio Tuesday morn ing and when it was seen hurtling downward near Bazaar, Kas., with the wing section floating away. 'It was assumed that something severed the wing with little or no warning," the statement said, "and the investigation was carried on in the belief that one blade of the three-bladed . propellers may have let go, which would amply account for a sufficient amount of vibration to destroy the wing." "The wing section was found a quarter of a mile away from the crashed airplane.

The boys loved him like a father; they confided to him like a pal; he made them win because he watched them, net like a football coach or a taskmaster, but as a boy's father, who burns with ambition for their success, and as a pal whoso heart goes out to them come what may. When the years, the great healer of grief, have rolled by and the football tricks of the great master are ancient history, all of us who played under him, fought for him and for Notre Dame, will not think of football.

Just as the great master himself drew crowds to the scenes of his amazing football exploits, the crowds tonight gathered about his mortal remains for one final, silent tribute.

San Antonio, Texas, April 2 De spite their inherent tendencies to gum up traffic on the baselines, the Robins look like the strongest base ball club In the National League this year. The reasons are L. Fresco Thomp son at second case ana ranK O'Doul in left field. The strengthen ine of these two weak . spots has given Broklyn a great all-round ball club. Second base was an aching void In the Brookllyn infield last season. Mickey Finn was a fair fielder but couldn't hit. Jake Flowers batted 320 but couldn't field. Thompson Is a steady fielder and better batsman than the 1930 records show. He slumped last year for psychological reasons. Playing four years with the attitude of the Philadelphia fans made it worse. O'Doul In left field is bound to be an Improvement over Rube Bressler or any other left gardener on the Brooklyn roster. After one season as leader of the National League clubmen, Lefty slumped to .383 last year. Anybody who can hit .383, slump or no slump, Is a valuable adjunct. As a fielder, Lefty Is only fair. and as a thrower he is not even that. He still winds up when he heaves a ball, probably the result of his early training as a pitcher. Nevertheless, his natural slugging ability will cover a multitude of sins. CANADIAN SETS RECORD For Mile Walk When He Steps Distance In 6:22 At Toronto. Toronto, April 2 (AP) A new mark for the one-mile walk was claimed today by Hank Cieman, local athlete, who heeled and toed it around the track at the Central Y. M. C. A, last night in 6 minutes 22 seconds. This is six seconds better than the best previous time recorded indoors, and three and one-fifth seconds better than the outdoor records. G. H. Goulding, of Winnipeg, holds both previous records, the outdoor mark of 6:25'.4, officially recognized as a world's record, being made by him at Montreal,, June 4, 1910, and the indoor mark of 6:28, recognized as an American record, at Buffalo, December 18, 1911. 2) RE 05 SHOULD ?l&t4 A PEW have? . . wrr; SUCH G-OOO SUCH GOOO Durva $5.50 Everytlme 5.30 Royal Charge... 8.00 Danny won $155.50.

L0TT GOES FORWARD, Eliminating Californian In Tennis Tourney At New Orleans. New Orleans, April 2 (AP) George Lott, Philadelphia, eliminated Ellsworth Vines, Pasadena, Calif., and Jkhn Van Ryn, Philadelphia, and Clifford Sutter, New Orleans, fought to a two-all standstill until their match was ended by darkness in the semi-finals of the New Orleans Coun-tiy Club invitation tennis tournament today. The sturdy Lott, Davis Cup player, probably won the hardest victory of his life in downing the hard-stroking Vines, 36, 10, 64, 75, 86. In the other match the youthful Sutter took the first set handily, 6 2, but the seasoned Van Ryn came back and took the second by the same score. Sutter then took the third, 64, and Van Ryn snagged the fourth, 63, as twilight settled. The play will be resumed Saturday with Van Ryn serving. Before the semi-finals singles started, John Barr and James Quick, both of Dallas, Texas,, defeated Charles Hume and Ed Sutter, of New Orleans, 46, 63, 61. This doubles match was Inter rupted by darkness yesterday and the final set was played today. Semi-finals In doubles will be played tomorrow with Lott and Van Ryn opposing Barr and Quick, while Vines and Sutter will meet Dan Murray and Maurice Bayon, both of New Orleans. . Pirates" Hold Bag" On Star Shortstops The Pittsburgh Pirates at one time had two of the greatest shortstops now performing under the big top. Now thu club has neither.

A fact less well known Is that these same Pirates at one time had Joe Cronin, Washington shortstop, unoffi- JOE CRONIN cially termed last season the most valuable player in the American league. The Pirates, back in 1926 and '27, owned Cronin, but sold him to the Kansas City Blues because there seemed no possibility that Cronin could supplant Wright at shortstop, and because at the time Cronin was Just a big gawky kid. Since, however, Cronin has taken on weight. He now scales 180 pounds. Last year he hit .846 for the Senators. Even if he can't maintain that hitting, he has proved himself to be one of the flashiest fielding shortstops now In operation. Meantime, the Pirates are slated to enter the season with Tommy Tevenow at short. Tevenow hit .286 with the Phillies last year. I -:'K-.., . REDLEG ACES Trounce Barons, 3-1 Lucas And Benton In Form Against Southerners. Cuccinello Slams Three Binglei' One For Three Cushions Team. .; At Chattanooga Tomorrow. SPECUL DISPATCH 10 I US E.NO.CI1IM. Birmingham, Ala., April 2 An exceptionally good, brand of pitching: was served up by four Birmingham, and Cincinnati pitchers here Thursday afternoon, with the Reds displaying just enough edge in batting to come home in fromt, 3 to 1. Red Lucas and Larry Benton, outstanding members of Dan Howley's hurling staff, limited Clyde Milan's Barons to five hits, while Bob Hasty and Clyde Touchstone, themselvea former major leaguers, held Cincinnati to six safeties. By strict scoring the Reds mads but two earned runs to Birmingham' one, as Cortazzo, hometown short stop, should have fielded Heath's roller in the first inning for at least a force-out at second, if not to start a double play. - As it was, after Heathcote opened the game with a single Cortazzo played Heath's ball badly and it went for a hit, Heathcote racing on to third. This enabled Mickey to come In as Strlpp hit into a double play, Cortazzo this time coming through with the starting end of the play. Cullop Is Out. Cuccinello followed with the first of his two hits, but Cullop fouled to the catcher. The Reds hopped on Hasty again in the fourth, Cuccinel-lo's dcuble to left setting off the fireworks. Cullop flied to center, but Roettger's double brought the run. - Touchstone pitched the last four" innings, yielding but one hit. This was Cuccinello's third blngle, a smashing triple deep into left center: It came after Stripp had walked with two out and produced the third Red run. ;, Three clean blngles in a row with but one out in the first accounted for Birmingham's one run at the expense of Lucas. Bancroft and Susko hit safely, the latter being thrown out at second trying for a double by Heathcote's rifle shot to Durocher.. Bancroft halted at third and scored on Wels line single to left A single by Herschell Bennett with one out in the second-and a similar blow by Berres with ohe out in the eighlJi completed the Baron offensive endeavor. Berres hit was the only connection off Benton In the four inningj he worked, a double play Immediately disposed of Berres. Played In Fast Time. ; The game was played In the unusually short time of one hour anc 28 minutes, fast for a championship contest and even more so for an exhibition between a major and a minor league outfit Cuccinello's deadly batting featured the game. He was the only player on either side to bag more than one hit, and he got three, for a total of six bases In four times up. Durocher's work at shortstop was outstanding, too. He handled eight assists and one put out errorlessly. Dan Howley told Birmingham sports writers that Nick Cullop, former Atlanta slugger, was his regular left fielder. "I've told Nick that no matter how many times he strikes out, he's going to be In left field," said Howley. Cullop's trouble in ma jor league tryouts has been his fail ing against high balls, which tempt him badly. He did not get a hit in four times here, fanning once. He missed a curved third strike thrown him by Touchstone in the sixth. The Reds move on to Chattanooga tomorrow. The Score. CINCINNATI. AB.R.1B.PO.A.E.
