B A9 THE OLIN DUTRA'S 67 LEADS IN L. A. OPEN NEUTRAL OAKLAND TRIBUNE, SUNDAY. JANUARY 7, 1934 L4iCORNEIV BY ALAN WARD IDDV BAER continues to marked ininrnve- i ment in his ring endeavor-. U sterling Buddy work nut with F.ddie Jorge, Oakland iegrn heavyweight, at Duffy's gvnin.i-sium, wf were agreeablv surprised at the manner in which the likeable young member of the Baer family has developed during the past few months. He's boxing better, hitting harder and displays that self-confidence es - sential to any pugilist. Reminiscent 01 nis emer Dromer Max. in nis -DuxiriK siaute. nis oiiensive ana his defense, Buddy has definitely indicated lat hes may amount to lomething in a fistic .ease. A slightly non-comrnfttal parent, Jacob Baer, watched his boy exchange punches with the elongated Jorge. "Looks pretty good, doesn't he?" we offered. "Not bad," grunled Baer Senior, shifting his cigar. "Still wide open, though. He'll have to correct that.' Perhaps Buddy is wide open. But was there ever a fighter more open than Max? And what did that avail the opposition? Max would carry the fight to the other fellow, who would be too busy denuding himself to think about tryin 1o negotiate those wide open spaces. Buddy proved that he has a chin equal to that of Maxie's in point of Flexibility. Jorge hit him with a right hand that carried plenty of team, but the blow merely bounced off and 1he recipient wasn't slowed for a second. When will Buddy tprn. professional? When he's ready and not before, is Papa Ban's reply. And at present that has to suffice. rt n D D fho HARRY MAMOS, OroekVar heavyweight wrestler, tndav bin was en route to his home in Springfield. Maw., where he will remain through the Winter? returning to Oakland early in May. Mamos, recently returned to the Pacific Coast from Australia, has been in town only a month. Lately he's been inflicted with a touch of homesickness and overnight he decided to go East. The trip is being made by auto.nobile and Mamos I- riding alone. He tried to internet some of his local mat friends in making the trip, but business hereabouts in loo good for them to depart. O O O GEORGE SANGE today declared he is preparing for a boxing comeback, but Sangc has said that before and seeing will be believing. There's no fooling this time, however, Shi ge has avci.ed. He's working out daily and will seek a pot, on one of Ora Forman's fight shows about three vecks hence, S.mge, a fine welterweight prospect about two" years ago, quit the game to enter business will- his brother, Al. who fought a bit himself in four round days. o (i a Tddie I i'fl.

The injured member is healing, but it will be ueehs before he can resume boxing. Villa, clippings indicated, tprang into overnight popularity in Australia, both through his boxing ability and his gentlemanly demeanor in and out of the ring. 0 0 0 THERE are ruraors along the li-alto that Oscar Klatt, former local boxing promoter, will tage fights at an Emeryville arena before long. The rumors are not ex-actly new, but they have been gaining in size lately. When the question is put squarely to Klatt he gets a 'ar away look in his eyes and starts talking about the weather sad the National Recovery Art. Willie Gold, who was reported slated as assistant to Or. Forman. new Oakland promoter, hut who mmc-how failed to get the job, is said to be working with Kla't on some preliminary plans for the Emeryville promotion. O tt s CECIL McGILL, Long Beach , heavyweight wrestler, who has met George Hagen and lota of other good ones, nas moved to Oakland and is looking for mat . Jobs. McGill, following application at local wrestling headquarters, was told lo show up at a local gymnasium the first of the week, and if he proves he knows all the answers probably will get iu.. I. . ,.,.A a puBiuun uii 1 1 ma j iiiiu imw, o o a AD SANTEL definitely has retired from the athletic side of wrestling, and while the idea of taking part in a farewell match appealed to him, he can't possibly accept because of his promotional tie-up in Oakland and Salinas. San-tel is ro-promoter with Ernest Fed-derscn, his brother-in-law, in this city and the interior community. The first Salinas show will be held next. week, with Dr. Freddy Meyer and Al Baffert on top. Broncos Arrive From Hawaii-Tilts Tuesday The Broncos of Santa Clara, triumphant in Christmas and New of Hawaii and the Honolulu town team, arrive in San Francisco Tuesday morning on the President Pierce. ACoach Clipper Smith and his assistant, Buck Shaw, and Father James Crowley will return with the team. t Schmeling, Levinsky May Sign Monday CHICAGO, Jan. 6 (U.R) Signing of articles for the 10-rouhd heavyweight bout between Max Schmel-lng, Germany, and King Levinsky, Chicago, at the Chicago Stadium, February 18, is expected to take place here Monday. Joe , Jacobs, Schmeling's manager, has advised Jladium official)! he will arrive iocday to complete negotiation!.' MARK FRY TOPS LOCAL ENTRY WITH 72 LOS ANGF.LFS. .Tan. o--(U.Ffl Olin Dutra. a towering Castilian inrnationalisf of Santa Monica. Cal.. former P. G. A. champion, shot an extraordinary 67 today to lead by two strokes the first round of 1 'he ninlh-annual Los Angeles open I Sof championship. Paired in danjgewuis. position be- ; mna Dutre with by s were aui .Runyn of While Plains. N. Y.. and Johnny Revolta of Milwaukee, Cirst-flight players just now at the top of their game. A stroke hehind these were Ky Laffoon of Denver and George von Elm of Los Angeles, both with 70's, even par. Leading the Eastbay contingent of golfers was Mark Fry of Oakland with a 72. the same score as that 'recorded by Willie Goggin of San Francisco, who was finalist in the P. G. A. final last Summer against Gene Srazen. Earl Fry of Alameda carded a 7,1. 5 ONE-PI TT GREENS Dutra found the rather damp going litlle detriment to his game. His powerful woods and irons brought him home consistently and his bold putts were dropping where others were seeing theirs hang on the Up of the cup. His 67 was three under par. HN short game was clicking perfectly. Dutra one-putted five greens and chipped In from the edge of another. He was never over par on the outgoing nine, and twice under, lo take a 33. On the home nine he took one buz- d. a six on the long II, but irdied three holes for a 34. The buzzard resulted from a hold play for a birdie and curled the hole to overrun eight feet and the return putt also missed by a hair. The giant loomed tonight a likely choice to lead the pack under the wire in Monday's 36-hole final. P. G. A. winner In 1032 and a member of last year's Ryder Cup team, Dutra had a mediocre year last season, but inaugurated a dieting program last fall that found him 30 pounds lighter at Christmas, when the Pacific Coast winter season began. He was thoroughly fit today -and he will need to be tomorrow and Monday. RI NYAN GOING STRONG Runyan. Hie dapper bantamweight of the pro flock, had the largest year of them all Inst season, annexing the $10,000 Agua Caliente tournament and a half dozen sectional tournaments in the East before coming West at Christmas to take the Pasadena Open tournament lurt week with a brilliant 282, two under par. Perhaps the coolest of them all. Runyan is shooting a mechanically sound thoughtful game, that requires an inspired four rounds to top. Revolta heran a big season at Miami in December, finishing runner-up to Willie MarFarlan in the Miami-Riltmore championship. By no means lo be counted out were Laffoon and A'on Elm, both within easy reach of Dutra, nor any of an assorted field who turned In a 71 or more. Among these were MacDonald Smith, the venerable Carnoustie Scot, who won th U. S. iopen-before the birth of his companion in today's threesome Charles Seaver, California amateur champion. Smith had a 73 today, but he had two suli-70 rounds al Pasadena to show that he is nearer the top of his perennial game than al any time within recent years. Seaver had a 71 to tie Johnny Dawson of Chicago for low amateur. The original field plays 18 holes tomorrow, after which the low SO for the 3fi holes play 36 holes in Monday's final.

Captain Ed Schnarr's Fruitvale five is a slight favorite to lake the I title, having defeated their rivals earlier in the season. Tom Powers, forward, arid Bill Swanstrom, center, are expected to be 1he big guns in the Fruitvale attack, the former being the high scorer of the league. Athens will be minus the services of Iheir captain and star guard, Slan Taylor, who is out with an Injured knee: hut hope that, the return of Ed Hunt at, forward will offset Taylor's loss. Tessler Is being groomed to work at the guard position along with Conroy for the Athens hoopsters. In Ihe preliminary game Piedmont Parlor meets Eden Bears of Hayward.

(UP) Jack Dempsey arrived here today with his wife, the former Hannah Williams, for a brief stay before continuing his trip across the continent to New York, where he will confer with Madison Square Garden officials relative to the proposed Primo Camera -Max Baer heavyweight bout. Dempsey has Baer under contract to fight under his promotion, and Camera is signed, to fight for the Garden. Dempsey said he expected the bout would be held in the Garden's outdoor bowl in Long Island City sometime In June under the joint promotion of himself.and the Garden. Dempsey said Baer wanted one tune-up bout before meeting Car-nera, but he doubted if Max would take on the winner of . the Max Schmeling - King Levinsky bout scheduled in Chicago February 16 prior to t title bouk j . . the five-round senii-windup with Tommy Logan, and Lou Rogers, who work in the special event against the veteran Fiankie Slclson. Rolh the Oakland hoxers are stiff punchers, and are predicting iheir matches will end in knockouts. Forman hopes lo build Ferreria and Rogers into main-evenlers within a few months. Trihune photos. 552 play IN U. C. FOOTBALL Iron man football! Not at the University of California. Statistics re- veal that 552 students, nearly 11 per cent of the total male registration, competed In organized football during the last season. The varsity squad Used 40 men. the newly-formed Rambler squad 44, and the freshman team 43. The remained 425 took part in the intramural gridiron program staged hv Stub Allison, Bill Ingram's chief assistant, competing with one of the 19 teams. The statistics as far as the varsity, Rambler and freshmafi players are concerned, were based upon actual playing figures and do not, include those who failed to make the squads. Larry Lulz came nearer to being an Iron man than any other Bear, having taken part in 401 minuter of foothall out of a possible fifiO. He played 181 minutes in non-conference games and 220 minutes against conference opponents. Tony Dutriz played more football than any of his Rambler mates, recording n total of 287 minutes out of a possible 305 and played all 60 minutes in three games. Glenn Randall, big blocking half on the freshman eleven, played all but 23 minutes of the 300 Babe total and all of three games. Only four men on the varsity, freshman and Rambler squads last season were registered from outside of the State. Berkeley led the California cities by supplying 19 players, Oakland 16 and San Francisco 15. Jeffers May Join Long Beach Club LOS ANGELES. Jan. .-..nj.W--Dallas Jeffers. professional at the Santa Ana Country Club, expects to sign a contract to -become professional at the Long Beach Municipal Golf Course within the next week, he told the United Press today, Jeffers said a contract already had been verbally agreed upon, and that the contract was now going through the necessary municipal channels, including the City Council and mayor, before coming to him for signature. He said he expected to sign it about Tuesday or Wednesday. Griffith to Consider Boston Pro Contest LOS ANGELES, Jan. 6. (U.R) Homer Griffith,, hardest-running back on the University of Southern California football team last season, has been offered a professional contract with: the Boston Redskins, it was learned today. Griffith, who plays both quarterback and full back, announced he would consider the offer. OAKLAND BOYS CARRY HEFTY WALLOPS Bv AT N WARP There are several young fellows on Ora Forman's Wednesday night fight card who have excellent chances to progress from the preliminary into the main-event class during the next few months. Abel Ferreria. Lou Rogers, Domingo Valin and Freddy Hammer there's a quartet that might mean something to local pugilism in a short time. Each is a socker of the one-punch variety and each is reasonably conversant with boxing fundamentals. If Ferreria, East Oakland southpaw, who Is of the sensational type, gets over Tommy Logan in the five-round semi-windup, he stands a pretty good show of picking off a main-event before- the end of the current month. Forman, who has used Ferreria at San Jose, believes the youngster has what it takes. And Forman isn't the sort to keep a boy in the preliminaries when he figures that a top spot is the logical position. VALIN LISTS KAYSES Valin, from Hayward, is another one of the soporific gentry. Valin scored a half dozen one-round knockouts in Oakland earlier in the year. Rogers Is fairly seasoned as compared with the others, but he hasn't reached the veteran stage as yet. Rogers is to box Frankie Stetson In the special, while Valin Is signed for Jimmy Ingram Of San Jose, a fair sort of walloper himself. Freddy Hammer Is the baby of the quartet. A nice-looking blond chap, the light heavyweight, handled hy Dr. O. V. Robinson, proved the sensation of a recent San Francisco amateur tournament, knocking out his opponent, a good boy, in a few punches. Hammer will box Young Ketchell, "Hamburger" Joe Rorhas' entry. Dr. Robinson, who follows boxing as a hobby and who developed a flock of excellent amateur and professional fislictiffcrs during the past few years, has predicted that Hammer will steal the show. Of the aggressive type, who' fights with a half crouch and tosses punches steadily, Frankie, appearing in his first pro bout, should knock Ketch ell kicking in jig time, his manager nas asserted. WORKOUTS TODAY. Jack Pelrlc, 200-poundor, now living in San Jose but formerly of -Oakland, will endeavor to take "Dutch" Auerbach into camp in one of the preliminaries. Auerbach is a sailor at Vallcjo. 22 years old, stands over six feet and weighs 212. His manager, Dan Berknell of San Francisco, phoned over to say that "Dutch" is the goods and will give Petric plenlv of trouble. Jack has a snnjfc.y left hand, a good right,' but no great ability to absorb punishment. "Are" Clark, giant Negro, and "Rig Sid" Tcrris, down for the 10-round main event headlining Forman's Initial boxing show In Oakland, will work at Joe Herman's Lakeside Gymnasium, 125 Twelfth Street, this afternoon at 2 o'clock. All other boxers on the card also will be at the gym for conditioning. The performance will he free to the public and will mark the informal opening of Herman's training quarters, already accluimed just about the finest in the country. Forman Is building from the bottom in an effort to establish the Eastbay boxing structure. Hy the consistent use of Easlbay boxers he believes he ran develop within a reasonable period performers with box office lure. SEEKS CONSISTENT SHOWS He does not . inlrhd to present scintillating cards at intervals; rather, he hopes to offer conservative programs, insuring a maximum of interest and excilempnl. regularly. Only in that manner, he realizes, can boxing regain its rightful stains here. Winners of Wednesday night's scraps will be put on the following week's schedule as part of the build-up process. In the mean-lime, ambitious young local amateurs will be encouraged to enter the professional game. Sports Saved for America As Intrepid Judge Reneges Hy" HKNRY Mi LFAfORF I'niied Press Staff Correspondent Jan. 6 (U.R) -The the Louisville Slugger Bat Com NF,W YOHK. sports world owes a debt, of gratitude to Justice of the Peace William Seeley of Greenbtirgh, N. Y., for his decision in a case Involving twoJ football players. During a Thanksgiving Day game one of the combatants suffered a broken .law and took It to court, charging an oppos ing lineman with third degree assault. Justice Seeley trirew the case out of court Justice Seeley, made It clear that anyone who willingly, and with premeditation, entered a sports contest had no right to expect it to be gentle as tea time at the Savoy. Had he ruled otherwise, however, and npheld the plaintiff, he might have established a dangerous precedent, and one that might well have changed the entire complexion of sport, It is conceivable that Babe Ruth, after being struck out by Grove in a crucial game, would charge Lefty with wilfully, and with malice aforethought, defrauding him with a curve ball. Ruth could logically charge that Grove, by whiffing him, had robbed him of a portion of nnhtir tm. - iGneh headlines In hundreds awww'Mpeti, . libelled Coast League Magnates Meet Here Tomorrow (Continued from First Sport page) only to see attendance kept down, particularly In Seattle, because fans refused to sit in the old stands. President Baggerly made a special trip to Seattle to find out all about, the Seattle Club. His findings will not be known until he reports to the directors tomorrow. All clubs lost money on trips to the Washington metropolis last year and with most of the owners eager to keep out of the red this year a change of franchise might be suggested if the outlook .s not brighter for the coming season. Tom Turner has announced at every other meeting that he was going, to buy a major league ball elub, but he hardly will make such an announcement this time, as he Is now the controling stockholder in the Portland tear and one hall club is enough to worry anybody. There are likely to be some hot words exchanged when Lane and Dave Fleming of Los Angeles and others try to force a uniform admission price for the league. OWL TILTS OPTIONAL While they want to prove real hosts to the visiting magnates just as they did a few years ago. Miller and Devincenil will not allow anybody to step on their toes. The old question of night baseball probably will be kept out of the meeting this time as it is now foregone conclusion that the owners are to use their own Judgment In regard to running their home schedules. Herbert McFarlln, Oak secretary, has prepared a number of schedules, some for the straight and others for the split, season. He is regarded as the best in the country for drawing them. The Coast League circuit, with its seven-game series, and long jumps, is said to be the hardest for which tq draw schedules. VIRTUALLY SAME BALL The kind of ball to be used In 1934 has already been settled. It will be that used by the American League last year and practically the same as used in the Coast League.

Jan. B. (U.R The lfH4 Walker Cup team, to be headed by Francis Ouimet of Brookline, Mass,, wa --announced today at the annual meeting of the United States Golf Association. The other members of the nine-man team hre George Dunlap. New York; Chandler Egan, Del Monte, Cal.! Johnny Fischer, Cincinnati; Johnny Goodman, Omaha, Neb.;-Lawson Little, San Francisco; Max Marston. Philadelphia; Gus More-land, Dallas, Texas; Jack Westland, Chicago. ELIMINATE TRIAL. Herbert Jaques, president of the V. S. G. A., in announcing the team, said all nine men had been invited, but that no definite acceptances had been received as yet The U. S. G. A., in naming the team so early in the year, established a precedent. The Walker Cup competition will be played at St. Andrews, Scotland, May 11 and 12. The IJ. S. G. A. made a drastic revision of the rules governing the national amateur championship. In the past, contestants played two 36-hole rounds, one of them In the sectional qualifying rounds and the other at the start of the tournament proper. This year, however, contestants will play but one 36-hole medal round, and this In the sectional tests. It was also decided to increase the field for match play from 160 to 180. The play in the tournament proper will be exclusively on a match basis. 104 OPEN MATCH PLAY. There will be 76 byes, and 104 players will have matches on the first day. The 52 winners and the 76 byes 'will make up a field of 128 for match play on the second day. Two rounds of 18 holes each will be played the third day, reducing the field to sixteen. On the fourth day two more rounds of 18 holes will be played, reducing the field to four. The semi-finals and final twill be over the usual 36 holes. "This program," Jaques said, "was evolved after exhaustive study by the championship committee. An incidental feature Is that the tourney proper will come within three weeks after the qualifying rounds. "This was planned as an aid to the older players, most -of them businessmen, who have found it difficult, to point to two peaks of play, one for the first test and another for the championship itself." DOUBLE PUBLIC LINKS FIELD Jaques said that growth of public links Rolf interest was phenomenal and announced one chief change in rules for the 1934 tourney. This will provide for a match play field of 64 instead of 32 as in the past. The number of players allowed from each city has been reduced from six to five. It was announced that the U. S. G. A. would cooperate with the P. G. A. in its effort to standardize the understanding of the mechanics of the golf sti'oke swing.
