BY HAKIIY GRAYSON NEA Service Sports Editor NEW YORK—A forkball made Ernest Edward Bonham the best pitcher in baseball. He was pretty fast ana had good control when Scout Joe Devine first saw him pitching for a lumber camp team at lone, in northern California, in 1935. Frank Makosky, out of the Lackawanna League in the middle Jerseys, taught Ernie Bonham the forkball while the pair were with Kansas City. Makosky once had a trial with the Yankees. Tiny Bonham holds the forkball between the first and second fingers of his tremendous right hand, reiir.'i back with the same motion Today, Jacobs came up with a I with which he propels 'his fast Forkball Helps Yankee Ace The Juggler BASEBALL KFL5 LIGHT APr^ BONHAM new proposal for Army authorities. He proposed that Louis be permitted to defend his crown this Summer to earn the $117,000 he must pay in back income taxes next month. If the Army will agree to this, Jacobs promises that the rest of the champion's purse and all other profits will be turned over to the Army Relief Fund. Jacobs explains that Lcui.s wants to fight just once to get enough their tasks in a very serious man- | money to pay his income taxe.s. ner. That this was any mail's fall was evident in that the boys were constantly breaking their opponents hold and applying one of their own. "The Man With A Thousand Holds," muscular Gust Johnston, won the second stanza of the battlo after only 8 minutes of action with flying mares and body slam. Johnston proved to be a bit too fast for the heavier Irishman in this particular fall, his speed aiding him no his panting ad- favoring a .-leg little in subduing versary. Eddie Malone, injured by one of Johnston's powerful holds, dropped the deciding fall in 10 minutes, the winning hold being a leg lock preceded by a, series of bone crushing flying mares. Malone put up a good effort in this fall, but his injured leg seemed to bother him to such an extent that he was forced to wrestle defensively. Joe Welch tamed the Persian meanie. Prince Omar in the first fall of their fracas after the loud- voiced Persian had used every unorthodox trick possibly-. The Prince, after slamming Joe'to the mat by his hair, and using his foot numerous times in the back of his opponent, met with a whirlwind of fury.

The second and last fall of the Welch-pmar fracas ended only 10 seconds after it had started.

It wasn't corectcd until Johns Hopkins medicos had him sleep on a board for two years. Bonham juggles a five-pound iron ball before he pitches and between innings. He does this on the same theory that a batter- swings several bats. It makes the baseball feel light. Bonham is so big and barrel- chested that while he was with Kansas City, a wrestling town, he frequently was mistaken for one of the savage behemoths. Tiny Bonham stands 6 feet 2 and weighs 215 pounds, but that isn't why he is now the Yankee Big Boy. Pitching ability and sense has enabled him to replace the aging Red Ruffing as top man of the World champions' staff. 0 PLYING STAPK BONHAM ISSHOOT/UGAT AME&CAN LEAGUE SHUTOUT TH&OW5 A FOWBAL AND MS BATTEffS EATING OUT OF ///$ HAND. Paul Waner Seeks A Tie For Record By United Press Only six players in Major League baseball history have totalled three- thousand or more hits during their life-times. But the number will be raised to seven soon when Paul Waner, of the Boston Braves collects, just 11 more bingles. Waner, who learned hot to hit by belting corn cobs broomstick, naturally is forward to joining such immortals as Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker, Eddie Collins, Larry Lajoie and Hans Wagner.

It was exactly a year ago today that one of the finest examples of a truly great athlete made his final bow and stepped out of a sports scene that'll never seem quite the same without him. Lou Gehrig, the old plow horse of the New York Yankees, took his third strike just twelve months for 17 years and during that times 0 - fi " al b°w was in keep- he's had his share of thrills. But,| in 6 with tnc rcst of his li£c - Hc ' " ...... ' ....... °"' '" * ho l " 4 "° l1 " QllH he says, he'll get his biggest kick when he collects number 3000. The peculiar thing about Paul's successful hitting is that he is nearsighted. The elder of the Waner brothers confesses that, despite the flock of hits he has collected, he still can't as much a P art .° f , t see the outfield fences of any ball scneme as na ^ acks park in the National Lea gu/ Paul simply "went to the bench" and did it unostentatiously and without fanfare. Those who knew Gehrig, either personally or as an athlete, will probably never get over the blow that fell that day. Old Lou was American corn-pone, As a sportsman, he was respected by everyone from the bat boy to the manager of the opposing team. Yet, the greatest thing about Gehrig was the character of the man. He was simple, honest, unassuming, and clean-cut. Every kid in the world has his own particular sport's hero, whom he worships. The countless number of boys who revered Gehrig were certainly never influenced toward anything except something worthwhile by his example. When a guy like Lou is gone and washed out players like Dizzy Dean and other* ham athletes remain in the spotlight, it enables the fans to appreciate the true worth of a Gehrig. Yeah, a year ago today baseball' took one of its hardest licks. A great guy, Lou! *** *' par has worn glasses since he was a kid in high school but only for reading—never for baseball.

He still weighs 153 pounds—the same as the day he first reported to the Bucs. The Boston Braves have nine more games to play before they reach Pittsburgh for a series with the Pirates.
