Tuesday, Augsut 30. 1088 HOPE StAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Williams Softball Team Asks for Threaten to Quit Softball League Decision at Plate Monday! Night Causes Much ' ' Comment The Williams Lumber company softball team Tuesday threatened to drop out of the Hope Softball League—unless Umpire Kalph Cornelius is released. This announcement was made by League President K. S. Greening who •:aid that the Williams team had pro- 'ested to him against a decision at home plate in Monday night's game, and had threatened to quit the league. This decision went against the Williams team which caused a rook us for several minutes and finally ended in a forfeiture of the game to the Alton CCC Camp by Umpire Cornelius. The play in i|iiestioji involved Manager Pete Brown who attempted to score from third base. Cornelius ruled that Brown was out at the plate. A squabble followed. Cornelius stuck to his decision. When Cornelius refused to change his decision, Manager Brown refused to continue the game. Umpire Cornelius then forfeited the game, 9 to 0, to the A linn CCC Camp. The rookus occurred in the sixth in- j ning. Al that time the Alton camp was leading. 8 to 6. Ju.st what will be the result— whetFier Williams will continue in the league or whether Umpire Cornelius will he fired-—is being left up to the three Softball Commissioners, E. S. Greening, Tom Kinser and T. S. Cornelius. Mr. Greening said that he would hold a lonference with the other commissioner:, il'.irin).-. the afternoon and try to find ;.n answer to the protest on Correliu.s' umpiring. Asked if any of the other six member.", of the league had protested against any of Cornelius' deciisons, Mr, Greening said no one had made any complaint. In the first game Monday night, the league - leading Bruner - Ivory team shutout the Hoix* Basket team, 9-to 0. Hoy Taylor hurled a one-hit game for Bruner. The Bruner team left Hope al 1 p. m.

Gomez Hangs Up His 15th Win of Season Outfielder Tommy Henrich Belts Fifth Homer in Three Days NEW YCRK.-^-Backed up by 12- hit support that included Tommy Henrich's fifth homer in three days, Lefty Gomez won his fifteenth triumph and sixth in a row Monday as the Yankees beat the St. Louis Browns, 8-4. Although nicked for 13 hits, the southpaw had the situation in hand at all times. He shut out the Browns from the second through the eighth, then eased up in the ninth, when the Browns got three of their runs, two on Beau Bell's homer with Mills on base. Each team scored a run in the first, the Browns on two hits and one of the two passes Gomez issued, the Yanks on a single by Heiiricli and a two- bagger by DiMaggjo. In the fifth, the champions scored four times, pasting Oral Hildebraiid for four hits that included a ground- rule double by Gomez, singles by Rolfe, DiMaggio and Selkirk ajid two bases on balls, Hildebraiid gave up three more in the sixth, when Crosetti and Rolfe doubled and Henrich hit his nineteenth four-bagger. Hubbell Laid Up for Repairs Although the operation was.a minor one, Carl Hubbell, New York Giants star southpaw, wasn't expected to do any more pitching this.year, following the removal of a piece of loose bone from hul pitching arm in a Memphis, Tenn., clinic.

All 10 National League Pro Football Clubs Start Season With New Names Whizzer White, Barnum, Karamatic Head the List- Andy Bershaw, North Carolina's All-America End, Joins Detroit Lions By HAURY GRAYSON Sports Editor, NBA Service With all-star games popping up all over the country and the National Football League season opening, September 9, it is high time that someone called attention to the fact that each of the 10 clubs has new big names | this fall. j And that no less than 150 young college men, who before the depressions and recessions would have been bloated bond salesmen, are now perspiring in training camps, preparing to make a good living at what they know best. Pittsburgh, New York,: and the champion Washington club perhaps have come up with the outstanding backs among the newcomes. Pirates have the amazing Whizzer White. Giants are banking on Leonard (Feets) Barnum. Redskins start with George Karamatic. Pirates get their show window and j Rhodes scholar, White, into action right under the gun. They play in | Detroit, September 9, where the Whiz- zer tackles another Coloradoan, Earl i i Dutch) Clark, who generally is con- ' yidered the finest back playing the game today. Giants barge into Pittsburgh two days later. Barnum was rated as Cliff Battles' equal in college. They attended the same institution, West Virginia Wesleyan, from which school emerged Earl (Greasy) Neale, the veteran who sharpened the Yale Bulldog's teeth. Steve Owen believes that Barnum will turn out to be another Ken 'Strong. Giants finally have obtained an excellent quarter and blocking back in Nello Falaschi of Santa Clara. They also have Ed Danowsk, whose four- year record of completing 48.3 per cent of his tosses is unequalled, and Tuffy Leemans. "Automatic" Karamatic takes Battles' place in the Washington backfield. Karamatic ran hog wild for Gonzaga, with little support, so you can imagine what he'll do behind linemen like Turk Edwards and cou pled with the greatest pitcher in al football history, Sammy Baugh. Battles, you know, quit the money players to help Lou Little at Columbia He was the loop's leading grounc gainer for two campangns. As though Baugh wasn't enough the Redskins have recruited a pair of left-handed passers, Jim (Jackrabbit) Abbitt, a triple threat from Elon College, and LeRoy Campbell of West ern Maryland. Outstanding newcomers with the Chicago Bears are Gary Famiglietti, Boston University fullback who is being depended upon to replace the famous Branko Nagurski, and Joe Gray, a flyer and passer from Oregon State. Giving you a rough idea of how professional football players are shifted around and how shortlived the dodge is, not one athlete who participated in the 1932 championship contest Prince Plunges Into Cavalry Drill Demonstrating the depth of his interest in soldiering Prince Mikasa aouve, youngest brother of the Emperor of Jap.an, is pictured wlule participating in a recent cavalry drill. Like all his fellow oflicers. the Prince stripped to the waist and swam his mount across an inlet at Yatsu Beach, near Tokyo. Hollis Stultz to BattleM. Powell Patmos Boxers Scheduled for the Three-Round Main Event Hollis Stultz of Patmos, was signed Monday night by the arena matchmaker to meet Milton Powell, better known as the Patmos slugger, in the feature three round bout on Tuesday nights amateur fight program vat the athletic arena. Although this is not a grudge fight, both boys live near Patmos and, ia a friendly way, have an old score to settle from a previous score. Powell, weighing 169 pounds, is about nine pounds heavier than Stultz. The winner of this bout meets Bat Gosneli of Nashville on next weeks card. At noon Tuesday, it was doubtful whether or not Leo Dunlap, local ne- gro heavyweight, would be able to go through with his scheduled bout with Buddy Legans, colored battler of Spring Hill. Dunlap has been suffering, from a cold for the past few days but should he be unable to appear on the card Battling Siki will probably ; get the call to meet the Spring Hill negro. After an absence of six weeks Pinkie CarrigSn. hard hitting negro middle weight, climbs into the ring Tuesday night to meet McBernie Bolan of Spring Hill, in the three round feature preliminary. This will be the second meeting between Bolan and Carrigan. Last year at the Walnut street arena Carrigan won on a technical knockout over the Spring Hill boy. After being knocked to the canvass seven times in three rounds Bolans' seconds tossed in the towel and the decision was given to Carrigan. A battle royal and two preliminary fights, to be announced from the ringside, will open the program phomptly at 8 p. m. Tickets go on sale at 7:30. Synthetics Get Test BERLIN—(/P)—The new swim suits of synthetic wool, cotton and?rubber have appeared in a variety of color and design that this land of spas and bathing resorts has ever seen. remains with the squad. Green Bay Packers boasted four starting players in the all-star lineup in Chicago . . . Marty Schreyer, Purdue tackle; Chuck Sweeney, Notre Dame end; Cecil Isbell, F"urdue back; and Andy Uram, who lugged plenty of leather for Minnesota. Don Hutson, the circuit's leading pass receiver, is back at his old tricks. Cleveland perhaps has strengthened to a greater extent than any other outfit. It has the largest squad .in training ... 68. It came through- wth the largest percentae of draft players in National League annals. Among them are Corby Davis, Indiana fullback; Marcel (Red) Chesbro, Colgate tackle; Jim Benton and Ray Hamilton, Arkansas ends; Vic Markov, Washington's All- America tackle; Joe Routt, Texas A. & M.'s All-America guard; and Bob Davis, Kentucky's triple threat. Detroit has acquired another notable kicker in Kent Ryan of the Utah Ag- gies. The Lions' new centers started all-star games in New York and Chicago. . . . Alex Wojciechowicz of Fordham and Ralph Wolf of Ohio State. Other Grade A newcomers are Mon'k Monscrip of Standord, Andy Bershak of North Carolina, and Pete Smith of Oklahoma, all ends. And the Lions always have Dutch Clark. Jack Robbins, a slick passer from Arkansas, and Milt Fopovich, Montant halfback, join the Chicago Cardinals. Potsy Clark expects the Brooklyn Dodgers to continue their sterling play of the closing games of 1937, with Ace Parker once more the spark plug of both their passing and running attack. The club is well fortified at the end positions with Perry Schwartz of California and Johnny Druze of Fordham. Boyd Brumbaugh of Duquesne hops into the backfield. Bert Bell of the Philadelphia Eagles expects Dick Riffle of Albright to vie with White, Karamatic, and Barnum for recruit ground gaining honors. The professionals really are set for the healthiest season in their history. THE REAL THING IN MELLOW-TASTING "MAKIN'S"TOBACCO!
