Tuesday, September G, 1938 HOPE STAR, H0t>fi, ARKANSAS PAGEFIVfc THE College All-Stars Defeat Redskins Jack Robbins Plays Great Game to Beat Professional Team DALLAS. Texas — (/!>) _ Vicious ground play, minced in between 51 aerial thrusts that gained nearly 300 yards, gave the College All-Stars a 13-7 triumph Monday night ovar a bewildered Washington Redskin crew that leaned heavily on breaks to kaep the score down. Just as it has been for the past two yenr.s, a boy they forgot in the Chicago college-professional classic came through to lead the riot. This time it wa.s curly-thalclled Jack Robbin.s, the man who made Arkansas" university's 1937 team known as the "pawiiugest li>ain hi the nation," who played the role. He stole Slinyin' Sam Bough's pnss- inK thunder and tore around on running plays the world's professional champions couldn't stop. Once lie scored himself, and again he passed to Johnny Kovatch, Norlhweslern's great end, for Ihe other .score. But MatiKh. hobbling around on a lame foot, almost saved the Re'dskins at that. Master of the quick kick, he Mipplied one of those good for G5 yards that save the Redskins thqir break that netted a score. And with only a minute left, the slinger stooc out there and gained 53 yards on three successive aerials that had the collegians reeling' at the ond. The collegians, strangely, had to tally to win. • Statistics showed them mn.ster.s of a team crippled by Baugh's injury aud Alabama Riley Smith's absence, but breaks went the other way. Three times they tried field goals and lailed. Once they fumbled on the four-yard line and Wee Willie Wilkin Washington tackle, recovered across tbe f!<>al line for a touchback.

"1 wa.s a floater," Bell explains. "I never hit anybody very hard. I used to drift a lot, and while they never gut around me, a lot of plays went inside. Then I'd yell: 'Go get 'em, Bo!'

Gabby Street Calls New York Yanks Greatest Baseball Teams He Ever Saw Champions", Ably Managed by McCarthy, Challenge Rivals to Match Their Pace—Terry's Only * Hope Is to Salvage Ciate ' By HARRY C.RAYSON Sports Editor, NEA Service Gabby Street calls the New York Yankees of today' the greatest team he ever saw. That only makes it official, or something, but Street has been around a long time and has piloted champions. The current guide of the St. Louis Browns led the Cardinals to pennants in 1930 and '31 ... beat the Phildel- phia Athletics the latter fall. The Old Sarge also gives a reason for the Yankee success that most other observers overlook completely. His name is Joe McCarthy. "The Yankees are outstanding because they are a collection of outstanding performers," says Street. "They have remarkable hitters and pitchers. And I consider Joe McCarthy an outstanding manager. "The Yankees never worry about n contending team. They concentrate on the business at hand. And concentration is highly important in base- bull. They overpower the opposition . . . challenge any contender to match their stride. They make no mistakes in playing the game. 'McCarthy is an expert handler of men. In my opinion, he is one of the greatest managers in history. He deserves much of the credit for the team's success. McCarthy's Secret Is That He's Always Been the Boss 'Powerful clubs do not always win. Years ago Philadelphia had a team of great hitters, fellows like Flick and Larry Lajoie, but it didn't win. "McCarthy employs common sense. There seldom is a flaw in his strategy. "McCarthy must have had something to do with making the Yankee Etching staff so formidable." Only one has to check McCarthy's •ecord as a manager to realize his worth. He enjoyed tremendous success in the minors and handled bud National League clubs mighty well x>foro being handed the Yankees on a silver platter. The Yaanks got off BUCKS UP BUCCANEERS badly this spring . . . stnfigered foi quite a while. H looked like a yeni to. beat them, but McCarthy slra'igh- 1 tened them out. McCarthy doesn't mix with his players. He handles everyone differently . . . tunes down the temperamental ones and keeps so-called bad cators in line. Witness the job he did with old Blubber Mnlono. And when Joe McCarthy can't handle them, he ships them pronto. That's been his big secret. He has always been the boss. Business Man Terry's Only Hope Is to Salvage Gale Bill Terry's pitching was in such bud shape that the Giants were forced to open the important Pittsburgh series with Dick Coffman, who had not started in two campaigns. Hal Schumacher pitched and won for the Polo Grounders despite bone splinters in his right elbow. Terry admits that Schumacher worked with the full knowledge that he might be.jeopardizing his future. "But if the race remains an open issue, I can at least salvage the gate and fulfill some of my obligations to my employers," asserts the Giants' manager. "The team has made money this year and dividends might be increased still further by a good home stand in September, with the Giants fighting right down to the wire. Schumacher has shown the boys what it means to fight. Now let's see them follow his example." Terry, always the business man, can be depended upon to salvage as much of the gate as possible.

He is India's government trade commissioner to the United States. By IIAKKY GKAYSON Sports Kililor, NEA Service PITKBURGH.-Pittsburgh is making it tough for Pic Traynur and the Pirates. The natives take it for granted that the Buccaneers will win the National League pennant. A local newspaper is running ti .sports qui/. contest, the winners' prizes being free trips to world .series games played away from Pittsburgh. This despite the fact that Traynor knows that only an exceptionally crazy race in a circuit noted for nutty races has saved the Corsairs. The club has another eastern trip—finishes the grind away from home. Traynor wonders what club is winning all the games. "Certainly, we arc not," he smiles. "Everybody seems to be losing. "We're still on top and we've look- Cf.l terrible. We look especially bad igainst second division clubs. You should have seen the Phillies play iigiiinst us. They looked like the lea- 5ue leaders and we gave a fine imila- ion of cellar champions. Emmett Mueller was on third base for them md the runt tore the cover off the ball. 'When the Bees came to town there was another shrimp, Rabbit Wartsler, coming up and breaking up all the games. He'd hit one jut out of reach of the shortstop and then he'd hit one that Lloyd Wuner would just miss catching. It was enough to make you go mad." The Pirates haven't been hitting a lick in most of their recent games. "I've just pitched 15 minutes of bat- tinjj practice," remarked Coach Johnny Couch, returning to the bench. "I was putting them right down the middle, and they were lifting the ball in the air or hitting it in the dirt. No line drives at all. Can you imagine how they'd hit if I put something on the bull and pitched to corners?" But the way things have been going, all the Pirates have to do to win is play .500 ball. No other club is doing much better. If the National League were operating on a split season basis ... if the race had started from scratch on or about July 15, all eight clubs would be scrambling for the flag, and there wouldn't be a favorite. One team is about as good ... or as bad ... as the other at the moment. Tim Bees perhaps played the best ball in August, but Gooch has an idea that it they got close to first place they'd collapse like all the others. The current position of the Pirates has done one important thing for Traynor. It has made him a man of action . . . not afraid to make changes. There was an exampe of that the other afternoon when he benched the new heroes, Johnny Rizzo and Jeep Hadley, because they were not hitting. The Bucs led by a wide margin, but Traynor no Hope Softball League Clubs w!II Pet. Bruner-Ivory 11 1 .917 Williams Lumber .... 9 2 .818 CCC Camp 8 4 .GG7 Geo. W.

Bringing in the veteran Heinie Manush from Toronto was a wise move. Manush is making a comeback for the second straight year, but never has been far away insofar as smacking the ball is concerned. He hit better than his lifetime major league mark of .333 with Brooklyn last season. Manush provides the Pirates with more left-handed batting strength and is another steadying hand for the Buccaneers' brig.

' Barometer RemdvesG'uesswbrk- From Pishing, Tests Indicate By JIMMY DONAHUE NEA Service Sporte Writer Lincoln, HI., —Maybe ybu're thinking a lot of new plugs, spoons, wobblers flies, or bugs before you go on that vacation trip this year. Take a tip from Brainerd C. Snider. Get yourself a barameter. • After a year of intense research on a nation-wide scale, Snider, newspaper editor and sporsman of this city, has come to the conclusion that the feeding periods of fish, salt or fresh water species, are controlled by atmospheric pressure. He will lay a ?50 fly rod against a cane pole that 94 times out of 100 fish bite best under high atmospheric pressure, and least under low. So conclusive are his findings that, after perusal of his records, the most skeptic disciple of Ike Walton will discard the wind in the east,, dark of the moon, and other hoary theories, and buy himself a barometer. Snider appears to have taken the guesswork out of fishing. Rear"em And Know He got the idea a year ago. started spotting barameters in various sections of the 1 country and having readings taken when members of the Lincoln Sportsman's Club went fishing. Snider and three other members fisher Kabetogama Lake in Minnesota and Eagle Lake in Ontario. Three more fly fished the Shake river and Spread Creek in the Jackson ole country of Wymoing. One spread the barometric gosepel to salt water fish in Florida, and to bass in famous Lake Okeechobee. Still another fished around Walker, Minn. These scouts kept charts of baro- metic readings. "The barometric theory is the greatest boon ever offered fishermen," says Snider. "On-half of th radings takn on 115 fishing days revealed that the baro- mter needle had been dropping or was low. Fishing was a blank or negligible. "The other half of the observations showed rising o r high readings, during which catches were recorded in every section, ranging from sea level to 9000-feet elevations. Rise With Pressure "When atmospheric pressure is low fish go down to epualize the preasure of air and water. They must even up their own bodily inwardpressur created by air and water. When the atmos- phric preasure becomes high they rise to evade the added weight of more air plus water, and thus relieve the strain on their air bladders. "Sometimes you find good fishing in a rain, and you immediately ask this should be with the barometer low. The explanation is that the center of the storm has passed and the atmospheric preasure is rising." In looking over the scouts' reports ® A New Angle They're getting fishing down to a science, as Einmett VVeak- •ley, above, of Lexington, III., indicates. That string of mixed pike were caught in Lake Kar betoganna, Minn., with the-aid of the barometer he holds. Experiments have proven that fish bite best on rising: barometric conditions, and very little on a falling barometer. The tip, of course, is to take a barometer reading when you go fishing;. you find that David Rhoads at Walker, Minn., found between July 4 and 10 last year that walleyed pike and calico bass bit only when the barometer was up. He took the limit on a high baro- Negro Heavies in Go Tuesday Night Main Event Will Be\ Return Bout Between , Stroud and Pipkin Leo Dunlap, big 6 foot 4,inch, Hope negro, meets Buddy Legans, Spring Hill heavyweight, in the opening preliminary at the athletic arena on Tuesday night's fight program. The second preliminary on Tuesday's card features two newcomers to {local fans. Ivan Gaines of Stamps, meets Howell Baker of Bodcaw r in an- cther three-round scrap. Zebb S'tevenson, 162 pound Spring Hill negro, has been signed to meet Pinkie Carrigan, hard-hitting local negro middleweight, in the three round- feature preliminary. Mutt Pbwell, twin brother of Milt Powell, meets Chubby Anderson, husky little Spring Hill battler, in the semi; final bout. According to fans living near Patmos and Spring Hill this bout is a.-natural.' These boys have 'met twice before with each taking a decision over the other. The main event on Tuesday night's program features a return bout between two fighters that appeared on the card three weeks ago. Jim Stroud, local National Guard welterweight, meets Delma Pipkin, Stamps boxer, in the three round feature fight. Etroud and Pipkin met three weeks ago.with the bout ending in a draw. Both boys have requested this return bout. Doors open at 7:30. First bout starts promptly at 8 p. m. If we assume that it is one's duty to promote public welfare and to avoid acts against public welfare, we can hardly avoid the conclusion that under certain circumstances it is one's duty to commit crime.—Dr. Knight Dunlap, University of California psychologist. The six-hour day was given as one of the ideal conditions in Sir Thomas More's "Utopia," published in 1516. meter, and found boats reporting few if any fish when it was low. Invites Co-Operation Snider's party at Lake Kabetogama found wall-eyes so plentiful th'ere that some that fish could be taken,regardless of weather conditions. However, their barmeter rdings showed the limit of from 39 to 52 pike per boat was being taken when the reading was obabove 28.55 (uncalilbrated to allow 1'or change in elevation), and "poor luck" of eight to 12 pike a party when the eradings were below that figure. John Alden Knight who comuiled. the solunar theory and tables, is a devot believer in barametric effects on fishing conditions. Others have dabbled with the idea from time to time.
