First, you will know that the P. B. guy with the red carnation is Lou Daro, and sec. Ann that heY iust met Ad Santei. Daro, kingpin of the rasslin' bosses in Southern Lahtornia, and Santei, co-promoter in Oakland, never were any too chummy. That dates back, to some years ago when they were both promoting in Los Angeles, and, as the folks say, is another story. ' ,, .. The boys only got real mean In their feelings toward each other lately. Daro recently re turned to Los Angeles from Japan, and consented to be interviewed by the sports writers. When Daro consents to an interview, it means he's got a strangle hold on an under-sized reporter and would break his neck if he tried to get away. In the course of his remarks Daro referred to Santel'i visit to Japan some years ago, and witheringly remarked that Ad had wrestled a bunch of native palookas. 0 o d BigLeagtmrospect Toume yPlayoff EMUMID FRANK'S III TRIUMPH OW what bnrns Ad op la that, when he visited the Flowery Kingdom 16 years ago, he tried his darndest to get a match with Ash I yams, Japanese champ, in the native style of wrestling;, which is called summa. Ad wanted to wrestle one fall summa nd one fall catch-as-catch-can. He didn't know what the heck ' summa was, but he opined that after Ashiyama had been thrown once catch-as-catch-can, he wouldn't come back for any more, Ahiyama was very pleasant and polite, as the Japanese generally are to visitors, but was a trifle cny about risking his title against the American. He finally suggested that Ad wrestle some of bis countrymen in an exhibition sort of try it out on the dog, as it were. 0 0 a THIS Santei did, meeting and throwing five Japanese of as- sorted sizes, weighing from 100 io 230 pounds. He met 'em all at the summa racket, which simply consisted of throwing 'em off their feet, This was duck soup for the American, and nona of the matches went over two minutes. " After watching jthis exhibition Ashiyama remarked that it was a nice day, and faded out of the picture. Ad ran him down several times later, but Ashlyama's conversation consisted entirely of saying yes, he'd have a drink, and no, he wouldn't wrestle. ; And that, my precious, Is why Ad's all cindered up at Daro's disparaging remarks. He wrestled all the Japanese that would face him, ind couldn't do any more. But just to make it a perfect day, he'd like to bump Brother Daro's head in the pavement at 12th and Franklin. 1 .

By EDDIE MURPHY ' Three major league scouts, Willis Butler of the Browns, and oje Devine and Bobby Col-trin of the Yankees, have made up tlieir minds that California is the hotbed ofmajof league prospects. All were on the road the past few weeks as they fol lowed instructions from their bosses to watch the activities of players participating in what Is supposed to be sectional battles leading to Na tional semi-pro championship. But all three hurried to Oakland to watch the games In which 14 teams compete to see which four will win places In the Oakland Tribune's fourth annual State tourney, , . " . : E.B.M.U.D. VICTOR Dovlne, Butler and Coltrln all said that In the first two rounds of play staged Thursday and last nights they saw more major league prospects than they did in semi-pro games they watched in Portland and Los Angeles. The second round of elimination games last night resulted In Braun Mattress and Frank's Nine dropping out of competition, but with Frank'i College Inn outfit bettering its chances to get Into the tournament proper. BUI De-Wltt bested Walcott and Frankle Peacock In a pitching duel which gave the College Inn team an S to 5 win in 12 Innings over Braun Mattress. Frank's Nine was nosed out, 6 to S, by East Bay Municipal Utility District team in the other games. . RALLY TIES SCORE Two more, elimination games were on the schedule today at the Oaks' ball park and should Moffat Packers defeat Bloom's Engineers In the first event, Art Mangini, who hurled .a no-hit, no-run game as the Packers defeated the Eagle Cafe tossers Thursday night, will be in action In one of the four games Sunday. In the second game today Frank s No. 1 team plays Green Spot Cafe, which drew a bye in the first round at 4 p.m. , Two San Francisco teams, Amer lean Building Maintenance and Gough-Market Merchants, will meet in the first game starting at 10 o'clock In the morning with three other games to follow. Twenty five cents will admit fans to the entire program. Brauns staged a three-run rally In the last of the seventh to tie Frank'i College Inn, 8 to 6, but Frank Peacock, who held the Collegians to two hits after he relieved Walcott In the fifth with one away, went on a wild streak In the twelfth to walk the first two batters and then erred on a fielding play , as the Collegians scored three runs without a hit.

That thrill was felt right here In Oakland, Archie's home city, where his 78-year-old grandmother, Mrs. Fannie Wall, has had her ear glued to the radio ever since the Games began. With Mrs. Wall was herNUugh-ter, Archie's aunt,Mri.: Florenca Murray, at whose residence at 6114 Telegraph Avenue, the great University of California athlete makes his home. And over in San Francisco Mrs. Lillian Williams, his mother, likewise was strain ing her ears for the first flash of victory. , For these three it was the crowning moment of their lives to hear that Archie had achieved his cham plonshlp goal, and they did not heS' itate to say jin. ' PRAYED FOR VICTORY "If he knew how happy I am here, he certainly would be happy there is Berlin." said Mrs. wail "I've waited and prayed, for this all year. This is tne greatest momenv we've ever had. "The only thing to say is that we are thrilled." said Mrs. Murray, and Mrs. Williams echoed: "Thrilled? I certainly was. Oh, It was mar velous " ' i , His grandmother, founder of the Fannie Hill Home for Negro children, is Archie's most enthusiastic rooter. She has watched him in every meet he has' run in around the bay, besides following the reports closely when he is away. When he spoke over the radio after the race, Archie's first wordst. was for her: "I want to say hello to grandma." He knew she would bf listening in, although' his mother, who is em ployed in San Francisco, might not be able to do so. PLEA FOR MATE Next he thought of j his stricken teammate and one-time rival, Harold Smallwood of U. S. C, who was operated on for appendicitis this morning. . 'I hope friends in California will write some words of cheer to Hal Smallwood, who had an appendicitis attack this morning and missed the race after qualifying yester day. He's quite all right, but I know he'd' like to get some letters." Alii of his family here; were so excited they could, hardly sit still. None of them, except Mrs. Wall, had really realized how good their boy Is until recently, but they were pulling for him. "We hoped Archie would win," his aunt said. "He had planned it all along, ever since he went out to the university. He really went out to win. But Archie doesn't run for glory; he runs for the fun of it; SEE WHAT ARCHIE DID AT BERLIN!

Track Cinch in Games, Hank Decides By HENRY McLEMORE United Press Staff Correspondent BERLIN, Aug. 8. (U.R) Unless a miracle comes to pass (and the chances that it will are as remote as that Hermann Goering will wear the game uniform two days in a row), the United States of America, or "Och Ess As" as the Germans call it, is a shoo-in for the Olympic track and field championship. When the boys went into action today America had 167 points against 574 for its nearest rival, Finland. With but five events remaining to be decided twoquite gU right toQ( havin? finished relays, the decathlon, the 3000 meters steeplechase and the marathon the Finns woulC have to sween all of them to take what the Teutons, with their flair for originality, term "the bacon." They won't do this, and you may quote' me. We are a cinch in the two relays and for two reasons, the first being that we have the fastest runners and the second that we know how to pass that baton. Even if your relayers were no . faster than the opposition they would win handily because they are certain to pick up two or three yards with each, passing of the stick. The Europeans make a ceremony of handing on the baton. They act as if it were a Christmas present. The receiver take the stick and then, with a graceful bow, extends his thanks. The rude Americans grab the baton aa if it were money from home, and light out Our i decathlon boya are doing one-two-three in the first five events yesterday. Speaking of yesterday, Der Fuehrer put the chill on the stadium for the first time, which must have been a blessing for three sailors who, when he is there, are burdened with the unhappy duty of standing at rigid attention directly behind his dictatorial loge. Brother Hitler certainly chose an ideal day 'to stay away. They say he doesn't know a thing about track affairs and would have a difficult time , distinguishing between a hurdle and a hammer, but his decision to miss the decathlon would indicate he either knows more than Ipeople give him credit fon or else I he has a very capable tipster. For the decathlon even an Olymplo decathlon is a business which would put even close relatives of the competitors to sleep. I have always maintained that It it an event of high-grade mediocrity, designed for chappie fair in everything but tpe In nothing. - tCowrUht thtiSined Trm MORRIS, CLARK, PARKER LEAD DECATHLON (Continued From Page t.) this competition, Dorothea Schiller, Ann Govednik and Iris Cumming were eliminated. In the women's 100-meter free style trials, Rita Mastenbroek was clocked in new Olympic record time of 1:06.4 in one heat.

Jewish Youth Off Relay Team; Airs Charges BERLIN, Aug. . 8. (Charging that politics Influenced revision of the American sprint relay team lineup, MlHy Glickman, New York Jewish boy. who was left off the quartet with Sam Stoller of Cincinnati, today fired a blast aimed at the American Olympic coaching staff. "The heats failed to show the necessity for shaking up the lineup after Stoller and myself long practiced the stick-work," Glickman said. "We did not know until this morning's conference with Head Coach Robertson just who would run. It looks like politics to us." Asked to elaborate on his charge, Glickman said tersely: -. ' "Cromwell's influence looking out for Southern Californians." He referred to Dean Cromwell, track coach at the University of Southern California. Man Who Invented ?

' Hay ward Peer t Hunter Fi BERLIN, August 8.-47P) Robert Donat-'aecretarv of the International Swimming Feder ation, today told Eleanor Holm Jarrett that she was to swim in no more amateur meets, upon the instructions of Avery Bran-dage, president of the American Olympic Committee. i Brundage told Donat that, as president of the American Amateur Athletic Union, he already had disqualified Mrs. Jarrett.' On what grounds the backstroke ace was being disqualified, Brundage did not say. Mrs. Jarrett, disbarred from the American Olympic team for alleged violation of the training rules for bidding drinking and late hours, subsequently agreed to report the Olympic Games for a newspaper syndicate "INSULT ADDED" . 1 Mrs. Jarrett was incensed at the news that Brundage had barred her from European amateur circles. "I call that adding insult to injury," she told the Associated Press. "I do not see how he can do it without giving my case some kind , of a hearing. . . "If they start barring everyone who takes a drink they won't have any amateurs left. I hadn't intended to do any swimming on this side, anyway, but I certainly do intend to i when I return home." Mrs. Jarrett said Donath was almost apologetic when he aproached the subject. NAI SMITH IGNORED BERLIN, Aug. 8.

Naismith of the University of Kansas, founder of the game the Olympiad's first basketball competition started yesterday with 10 games which ran true to form. 'The United States and the Philip-pines both drew a bye. What developed startlngly, however, was the charge by Jim To-bln, New York basketball official, who Is one of the Olympiad referees, that Dr. Naismith had apparently been completely ignored by the American Olymplo Com- ' mittee, headed by . Avery Brundage. "Dr. Naismith arrived in Germany without even a pass to see a game," Tobin said. "We managed to get him a pass for all games,, but it was not through the American Olymplo Committee's efforts. He was ignored there and his name stricken from the pass list. "What's more, no ceremony was planned for Dr. Naismith, who as inventor, is naturally the , most important figure in basketball." Nevertheless, the colorful, If poorly" attended, event, was arranged on short notice and held in the expansive "Hall of German Sports," where a miniature opening day parade of Nations and speeches by Dr. Naismith and leading foreign officials entertained a crowd of 200. .Dr. Naismith made the trip' on funds provided by American basketball fans.
