PAGE FOUR BLUEFIELD DALLY TELEUKAFH, Blueneld, W. Va. Thursday Morning, April 29,1937. Reds Break Into Win Column By Flogging Cubs THRASH BY 1HJODICT Cubs Lose Services Of French For Two Months; Phillies Cop No. 4 By Whipping Bees; Brookiyns Larrup Giants Chicago, April 28 (JP)— Cincinnati's Reds won their first «ame of the National league season today, a 10 to 3 decision over Chicago which also cost the Cubs the service's of their ace lefthander, Larry French, for two months. , A blazing line drive from the bat of Ernie Lombard!, the Red's big catcher, struck French on the right hand in the first inning, breaking three fingers and all but knocking the big southpaw off his feet. The ball bounced off his hand into right field, where first baseman Jim (Ripper) Collins flagged it. French, obviously in great pain, ignored his injury to sprint to first base and take a quick throw from Collins, retiring Lombardl on a close play. He gamely attempted lo remain in action but was removed after Phil Welntraub singled, Alex Kampouris was safe on Stan Hack's error, and Billy Meyers singled. Charlie Root was sent In to relieve the injured hurler after five runs had crossed the plate. ,-, Welntraub contributed a homer and a single to a 14-hlt assault on French, Root and Clay Bryant.

PHILS COP ANOTHER Philadelphia, April 28 (JP)— The Phillies won their fourth game in six starts today, piling up an early lead to defeat the Boston Bees lor the third straight time, 7 to 4. Danny McPayden, who held the Phillies to four hits in losing a 1 to 0 game at Boston opening day, was knocked out of the box In the first inning. Browne led off with a single. Johnny Moore hit a homer over the right field fence. Klein singled, but Arnovich hit into a double play and the scoring seemed over. However, six straight hits scored four more runs and brought in Bill Weir, a southpaw, in place of McPayden. Earle Browne, the Phillies' first baseman, obtained from Pittsburgh to replace the holdout, Dolph Camilli, got four hits in five times "P. New York, April 28 (^—President Ford Prick of the National league today opened an official drive to close Burleigh Grimes' "open season" on umpires. Nettled over the Brooklyn manager's umpire baiting average—old Burleigh has been tossed out of two games in five starts to take a wide lead over the record he established at Louisville last season —Frick ordered the fiery flatbush general into his office to lay down the law. "I want to get things straightened out—to ses what's behind all this smoke and disturbance," explained Frick, "so I've asked Grimes to see me tomorrow morning before he goes out to the polo grounds." Burleigh, long known as a one- man scourge of umpires, has been given the thumb twice in as many days. Umpire "Tiny" Parker ban- isher him in the sixth Inning of the Brooklyn - Philadelphia game last Sunday and on Monday Larry Goetz chased him again. That made two chases within the space of six innings, which should be a major league record if it isn't. "I will have nothing different to say to Frick than that which I've already said about my difficulties with the umpires," growled Burleigh. "I'd like to repeat that I used no profane language to Umpire Goetz. I said: 'So you think you are infallible, eh?' He must have thought that was a new cuss word, but that is the nearest thing to a profane word I used."

When Arky began to "ride" the ball hard and safely it did not dawn on them that a na tural batter in a slump had found himself and that one pitch was no different than another to him. His closing spurt proved he had no weak spot in his make-up and that the best way to get him out was to keep the ball away from his trusty bludgeon. Two-baggers are Vaughan's specialty. Last season he hammered out 30, while making only 11 triples and nine home runs. Not the mark of a slugger compared to Paul Waner who accounted for 53 dou bles, 9 triples and 5 homers, or Joe Medwick who outbid both Pirates by chalking up 64 doubles, 13 triples and 18 homers. Those who believe Vaughan will be the 1937 batting champion may be disillusioned in the fall to find Joe Medwick, the 1935-1936 runner- up, or Blimp Phelps, of the Dodgers, running away with the batting crown. It is one of those things in which a consistently good batter can steal the play. DERBY ELIGIBLES WILL RUNJQDAY Blue Grass Stakes Feature Closing Of Keeneland; Le- Ksar Wins At New Market; Miss Georgette Ties Record Lexington, Ky„ April 28 (JP)— A post position in the Kentucky Derby their goal, six derby ellgibles were listed tonight as starters in the $5,000 added Bluegrass stakes tomorrow, feature event of Keeneland's closing card. Headed by E. R. Bradley's Brooklyn and Billionaire, other three- year-olds named to compete in the mile and an eighth test are Calumet Farm's Gosum and Galsun, Howard Maxwell's Fencing, trained by Earl Sande, and Hal Price Headley's Old Nassau. The Bradley entries, expected to be slight favorites over the Calumet entry, will be out to redeem for their disappointing showing last week when they chased home Grey Gold, another derby hope ful, in a purse race. Billionaire was second and his stable-mate, third. The Idle Hour colts will carry top impost of 123 pounds, two more than assigned to the rest of the field. Although showers were predicted for tomorrow, the track was expected to be good and the largest crowd of the season was expected. In addition to the prize money, a cup once presented to the breeder of the famous horse, Lexington, also will go to the winner. The Blue Grass Stakes, once a historic Kentucky turf fixture, has not been run since about 1900. Scribes Feed The Squirrels FILE STUFF BY MESSENGER VP) rf Boston Girnis, If Mayo, :ib DlMaggio.

Just got through talking to Charlie Berry of the Athletics. He said while the A's trimmed Washington twice the Senators are going to>be a tough ball club." "Just got a letter from Gabriel Paul (Cincinnati's press agent) and he tells me about Cincinnati's tough luck. He said at Pittsburgh the Reds had the game won when a ball took a bad hop over Scarsella's head, scoring two runs that lost the game. St. Louis won a game when a ball got stuck in the web of Mccormick's glove so he couldn't get it out to retie the last man and be darned if the next batter didn't win the game with a single." "How you getting along at the office?" I asked. "Terrible. I'm not going back till the Senators win some games, I'm sending in all my stuff by messenger. Everyone in the office is calling me Congressman Bunko. It gets my goatl But don't worry, we'll come back to do plenty of talking. Don't forget the Yanks looked lousy at the start of last season. Detroit came from last place in '35 to win, didn't they?" "Yeah," said I, "and who thought the Giants would win last July 4? They were mired in second division but look where they finished. Can you Imagine Eddie Brannick (Giant secretary) asking me if I picked the Reds as a gag?" We ran out of nuts just then and the squirrels shinnied up their favorite trees.

The score* cracked par figures by five strokes. Walk was never over par on any one hole and he carded five birdies. After starting out with a par four on the long No. 1, Walk registered five threes in a row, took a par four on Nos. 7 and 8, then birdied 9 with a three. The "assistant pro had a chance for an even better score when he hit No. 8 green with his tee shot, but three-putted. The previous record for the course had been 31, held by Rocky Schorr, club pro. MULLENS BOOSTERS HAVE STRONG CLUB THIS YEAR The Baron Returns To Meet Former Marine Champ As Feature Of Weinberg's Monday Night Performance , ^ ________ George Hagen, ex-marlne' heavyweight champion, and Baron Ginsberg, former Jewish heavyweight champion, headline Ralph Weinberg's wrestling bill at Sportarena Monday night. Hagen won two starters here- defeating Ivan Mikeloff in his debut and downing Jack 0|Brlen in his second appearance. Ginsberg defeated O'Brian In his first appearance here and since that time h» hasn't been back in town. Both Ginsberg and Hagen showed plenty of stuff In their bouti. with O'Brian. The Baron looked so impressive that fans yelled "bring on the tough boys for him." The former Hebrew champion Is naturally a tougli guy—his style is rough but at the same time he sandwiches in plenty of holds. Hagen earned his spurs as an amateur wrestler. George won the Marine championship two years in a row, finally turning professional. He has meet with much success in the money ranks and is calculated to be able to hold his own with the veteran Ginsberg. While Hagen has been wrestling professionally for several years he is still a youngster. George entered the Marines when he was a youngster and entered professional wrestling at the ago of 22. Weinberg is casting around for some first class talent for the supporting entertainment. So far he has made no definite selection. He hopes to sign the versatile Lee Henning and Buck Olsen for a return match, but last night the Dane had not been reached. VETERAN DRrVErfSCORNS RACING SUPERSTITUTION; WOULD DRIVE '36 WINNER W. Va.

VARE WILL TRY FOR NATIONAL CROWN New York, April 28 (/P) — Arturo Godoy, Chilean heavyweight champion, punched out a handy victory over Tony Galento, the "Newark nightstick", in the ten- round feature event of the New York hippodrome fight show tonight. Godoy weighed 196 and Galento 222 1-4. In the other half of the double barreled heavyweight carnival, Abe Simon, young New York contender put a decided crimp in the heavyweight hopes of Jack Torrance, former shot put ace at Louisiana State university, by stopping the giant Loulsianian in the second round of a scheduled six. The battle of almost 1000 pounds of beef attracted 4,500 who paid $8,984.04 to watch the behemoths in action. It was Torrance's first appearance in an eastern ring and his first reverse since he blossomed out as a professional fighter last December. Prior to tonight's rout he had gone to the post four times and been returned a winner each time by a knockout. Godoy, a prime favorite with hippodrome fans, was given nine of the ten rounds over Galenta on the Associated Press score caird, and would have been credited with a clean sweep had he not been penalized for a loW blow in the third.

Philadelphia, April 28 (fl 5 )—-Mrs Glenna Collett Vare, six times national women's golf champion, said today she hoped to regain the title at Memphis this year. The championship was won last year by Pamela Barton, of England. "Because I didn't defend .ny national championship last year, the idea seemed to spread I had retired," Mrs. Vare said. "I've never thought of retiring. I enjoy tournament golf and I like to win." However, she added, "the difference between now and a few years ago is that when something else conflicts with the golf, the golf will have to go. It used to be that when something else interfered, the something else had to go." Mrs. Vare indicated she expects to play In the nationals, the women's eastern championships at Plalnfield, N.

New York City DlitilUrlvt located ol Maryland. Kentucky, gnd N*w J«r» r Pt. Code No. 140 Qt. Code V « Indianapolis, April 28. (IP)— Scornful of speedway superstltution that "a winning car never repeats," Dapper Cliff Bergere wants to drive Lou Meyer's 1936 winner in this year's 500-mile Indianapolis speedway grind. May 13. Cliff voiced surprise today that other drivers are shying away from Meyer's car, apparently because of that old track tradition. "Not me," he said. "This year's race is going to be won by a tried and proven car. That's the reason I'm going to try to make a deal with Lou." Meyer already has signed to drive a car for Mike Boyle and has been trying to sell the speedster in which he roared to victory and approximately $30,000 in prize money last year. Cliff's been trying to win the race here since 1927. He has finished five of the races, winding up in ninth place three times, in third once and in seventh once. •He said he understood Meyer was agreeable to having him drive the car this year and he added, "Lou's a swell mechanic. It's a cinch he's got that car in swell shape. If I can't make a deal with him, I've got a couple of other cars in mind." Bergere, a sartorial triumph in heather tweed and red tie, was a trifle dubious about some of the engineering experiments to be tried in this year's rane. That's the reason, he said, that he wants a "tried and proven car." Bergere, whose hobby is police work, thinks the outstanding "experiment car" and the one with a chance to win is Lee Oldfield's rear- motored creation. "Lee's one of the best racing mechanics in the game," Bergere said. "The chances are he's got something" Bergere predicted this year's race would be about two miles an hour faster than the 109 miles ah hour whic hwon for Meyer in 1936. The unlimited gasoline allowance will speed up the race, he said. SOUTHERN ASSOCIATION
