Peterson of St. Louis, national fancy billiard shot champion and well known billard instructor, has been selected by the tournament committee of the National Billiard Association ot America to act as referee during the forthcoming international 18.2 balkline billiard tournament which .ens in Chicago Monday, according to an announce ment made here today by C. A. Storer, president of the associa tion. "Charley "Show Me a Shot I Can't Make' Peterson, was chosen to act as the third man in the ring because of his expert ability to make quick decisions, an important factor in a billiard match," said Storer. "Peterson, himself a balk line player of national note, Is well qualified to handle the decisions of the 8000 points which will be required to complete the 20 frames to decide the owner of the interna tional title." I Five players Welker Cochran, San Francisco, Cal.; Willie Hoppe.l New YorkCity; Eric Hagenlacher, Germany; Ora C. Morningstar, San Diego, Cal., all former champions at the 18.2 style of balkline, as well as Kinrey Matsuyama of Japan- have already sent in their signed entries to the National Billard As sociation. The tournament is to be held at the 131 South Wabash Avenue Recreation, the site of the recent world's pocket billiard tournament. -4 Check and Double Check. "AlekbJne'a Fourth Marriage Blocked." ALTHOUGH he set. the wedding day And duly felt elated, The maestro in his fourth essay Was checked but wasnt mated. Seems as Though. The big idea in hockey seems to be for the other guys to knock the stuffing out of the goalies. See where Bill Terry and Jimmy Foxx met the other day in Miami Beach, Fla. As they will probably not meet again this year, they had their picture taken shaking hands. Asked a guy the other day what he liked in the Derby. What do you think he said? Why he said he was going to have a bet on Time Clock if he had to hock his wrist watch. "Sports Promoter Short Given Ten Tears." Short gets long sentence. AiTSet. THE Dodgers now are' set to go Wherever they are going; Kack Wilson has been signed and so Their pennant hopes are growing. And while the Dodgers only aim To please their Flatbush clients, A big surprise Those daffy guya May spring upon the Giants. So What? In answer to the "They can't beat us,' Giants slogan the Cardinals counter with "They can't stop us. Looks like an impasse. "Many Turf Follower Lean To ward Theory This Is Fillies' Year.' Many baseball followers in Phil adelphia feel the same way. See where the Cards have re leased Flint Rhem to Columbus, where he won't have to hold out for so much. ' Babe Didrikson is barnstorming through the training camps pitch ing tho first inning in exhibition games. As a pitcher Babe is an outstanding . field and track ath lete. Babe has the distinction of being the only woman who ever struck out Babe l.uth and Lou Gehrig. And were their faces red? Ha, ha! Dunt esk! Joe Cronin is out to revolutionize baseball. He is going to try to make hitters out of his pitchers. In other words, pitchers who can't hit won't hit and don't hit are going to be made to hit Of course, there have been good pitchers who were also good hit ters. But when the mine run pitcher has a chance to win his own game with a timely hit, the usual practice is to pass the buck and let George do it. Pitchers are like that. 'Ware the Ides. One of the boys who just came in from an assignment after taking Shields Defeats Merlin. Stoef en Trims Borotra By tb Associated Press. NEW YORK, March 23. Tha two players who may carry on for the United States in tha Davis Cup singles this summer, Frank Shields and Lester Stoefen, have completed a clean sweep for America in the international indoor tennis series with France. With the series already clinched as a resuli of Tuesday and Wednes day's play, Shields mopped up Andre Merlin, 7-5, 7-5, 6-1, and Stoefen outfought the veteran Basque, Jean Borotra, 16-14, 6-4, 9-7, in the last two singles matches of the series last night. Both in the first and second sets, Shields trailed Merlin 2-5 and then rushed through to win fiv games in a row. The Frenchman offered only negligible competition In the final set after dropping those two in such heart-breaking fashion. After outlasting Borotra in their marathon first set, Stoefen was in full command although the veteran played courageously to carry the third set to deuce. off his overcoat and muffler and blowing on his fingers allowed 3 how the merry month of March was taking us for a ride instead of an ide. Of course, the season is still young, but right now it looks as though the House of David is the team the Browns will have to beat Casey Stengel started his baseball career in Kankakee, which ranked second only to Kokomo as the vehicle for wise cracks whe vaudeville was in flower. No wonder he wound up in Brooklyn. St. Lvuis. Kansas City and Tulsa are. . course, assured of playoff soit: I-:-. s for the title. The second and third place clubs meet in a four-gn:r.e scries beginning probably Wednesday night for the right to meet the first place team. First I'lace lias Advantage. The club finishing first will be 'nrrprf tn nlav hut one series for if Vie championship, Hit will share game, hence the earnest efforts of the Kansas City and St. Louis players to lead the league. Shrimp McPherson slipped in the w-ir.ning goal with less than two minutes to play in the final period apEinst the Warriors. He skated behind the Oklahoma Cify net, passed to Hughes, and took a re-urr. pass to poke the puck past Gut'.-e Vern Turner of the War-iors, whose sensational stops had -:ept the Flyers' scoring down all 1 curing me game. Strangely enough, one of the best executed Warrior attacks led to the winning goal for the Flyers. "Bulge" Bostrom, Lee Makarsky, Talter Baetz and Artie Clark formed down on the Flyer goal, ith Bostrom shooting in the puck -riP-e Murray stopped it. McPherson came out fast and outran B'.rirom to the other end of the rir.k for the score. All the scoring was done in the third period after both teams had ',' . d mostly on defense for the fir.-: two periods. The Warriors were trying to take their final hTr.e game and battling savagely.

Recovered from minor injuries received in the second match of the Western soccer championship series with the Wieboldts at Chicago last Sunday, members of the Stix, Baer & Fuller eleven have completed heavy training for the third and de ciding contest of the series to be played at Sportsman's Park Sunday afternoon. The Stix players took part in their final heavy workout yester day, with all the regulars partici pating. . There will be no changes in the St. Louisans' battle front. All the players who have gone through the entire 3Va hours of competition, without a substitution, will be on hand for the start of the contest. "We will win," is the consensus of the St. Louis players. However, there is no overconfi-dence. All the athletes agree that the Wieboldt eleven Is a worthy rival for even the holder of the national championship. Reports from Chicago indicate that the Windy City eleven is working hard for the coming battle. It is not yet certain, whether Frank Harker, who suffered an injury to his knee in the game last Sunday, or the veteran Munro, who has a bad ankle, will be in top condition for the match. Harker played center forward in the first game, which the Stix won, while in the second he took Munro's place at outside right, with Al Waldron center. If Harker and Munro are unable to play, Manager Billy Alexander will have to use the veteran Davie Coutts or Bobbie Walker, who this season has played halfback on the wing. The advance sale of tickets for the match opened yesterday. The prices are 75 cents for men, with 25 cents for women and children. Prices at the gate will be $1 for men and 40 cents for women and children. Dave Evans of Detroit, who ref-ereed the first two games of the series, will be back as chief official for the third and deciding contest. He will be assisted by Robert "Ribby" Murphy and Jimmy Dunn as linesmen. CARDINALS GET 13 HITS IN DEFEATING RED SOX Continued from Page 2E, Col. 6. on the mound, the Sox would have been scoreless if it had not been for loose fielding and what the Cards described as the plate umpire's failure to see a third strike as a strike. The girl Olympic star will tour the country with Ray Doan's House of David team during the summer and she is gaining experience and improving her pitching. Under the tutelage of Burleigh Grimes, Dizzy Dean and others she has learned to stand on the rubber, wind up like a big leaguer and throw a rather fair curve. Watkins Still Out. George Watkins spent his first full day in camp without a contract conference with Sam Breadon or Branch Rickey. It looks like the old ice treatment, if you know what we mean.
