rm Boy Schmidt Looks Ready to Mow 9Em Down in Majors Are Boxers Known by The Company They Keep? AN ancient bromide has it that a man is judged by the company he keeps ... It seems that with a boxer the matter goes a little farther . . . He may also be judged by the company he no longer keeps. Before okaying a world middleweight championship . fight between Rocky Graziano and Sugar Ray Robinson, Monday at Chicago, the - Illinois Athletic Commission closely questioned Graziano about his connection with parties of none too savory background ... One of these characters was Eddie Coco, recently convicted of murder. Graziano told Chairman Joe Triner that he had for some time abandoned all association with objectionable persons ... Coco, he said, had acted as his co-manager but he (Graziano) rave up this connection when Coco tot into, trouble ... Irvin Cohen became his manager and still is, Rocky deposed. After approving the Grazi-ano-Robinson , match Chairman Triner declared the commission would continue to investigate any connecting links between Rocky and Coco. This isn't the first time a boxer has had a manager with a penitentiary background . . . Two world champions of earlier times were managed by men who had served prison terms. The manager of a third world champion was sent to prison for an offense while his protege still held the title! ... In all three cases the offenses which caused convictions of the managers were not connected with the ring . . . And all three fighters completed blameless careers and today are highly regarded members in their communities. Baby-Sitter Factor : In Pole Vault Duel. POLE vaults at the fifteen-foot level are not won by sitting down . . . But it is related as fact that unless a baby sitter goes into action March 29, Don Laz will not be able to meet Rev. Bob Richards ifor the vaulting title of the Chicago Relays, at the Chicago Stadium on March 29. Laz, who has a four-month-old daughter, asked the meet promoters to provide a babysitter, so that Mrs. Laz might attend the meet and root for her husband's success . . . The official answer to Laz was: f'We'Il furnish the baby-sitter, you furnish the competition." Laz, no doubt, will furnish plenty of competition for the "vaulting parson" since he already has cleared 15 feet 3 Inches in a meet last January. i . . Also, he will meet the best competition there is, as Richards has cleared the bar at 15 feet 45 s inches. : .Too. bad if another vaulting demon named Don Cooper can't be present. ... He is the third active athlete in the country who, in recent weeks, has hoisted himself into the 15-foot stratosphere. This trio, barring accidents, will make the United States Olympic vaulting team which will compete at Helsinki next summer. ... Only a catastrophe can result in their defeat, in the celebration of the XV Olympiad. ... By the way, the pole-vault Is one Olympic event in which United States has never been beaten. Maybe a Fight Trust Is Not to Be Trusted. UNCLE SAM'S anti-trust suit against the International Boxing Club, of New York and Chicago, conveys the inference that the outstanding fight promoting group of the nation has been choking off competition. ... The allegation is that the I.B.C. has been exercising exclusive control of all world champions by means of contracts. Small time promoters complain that they are unable to sign champions for matches not operated under I.B.C. domination. . . . This doesn't seem to be entirely in conformity with the facts, since here and there title fights have been conducted independently. Officials of the I.B.C. .declare all their actions have, been taken "by advice of counsel who have assured us we are proceeding strictly according to law." Advice of counsel has, in the past, landed some clients in the hoosegow That the I.B.C.'s case is not 100 per cent secure is evident from' a statement attributed to James D. Norris, one of the operators of Madison Square Garden and other arenas, and an official of the International Club. He commented: " "If the Government finds our advice was wrong, we'll just have to change., Television is involved in the suit and that tangled situation may also be clarified as far as boxing is concerned. ... Of this another official of the I.B.C complains: "I can't understand why we should be sued for putting our shows on television when the National Professional Football League was sued for NOT televising their games." Which makes a pretty fair Gordian Knot for the Government to untangle or cut. FIGHT RESULTS bv tne Associated Press. 'IOS ANGELES Keeny Term.

Roy Stockton Sports Editor of the Post-Dispatch ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.; March 19 Willard Schmidt, righthanded farmer boy from Hayes, Kan., looks more and more each day like one of the . dditional starting pitchers that Eddie Stanky said he was looking for when the Cardinals opened spring training Feb. 18. Willard has pitched 14 innings now against major league batters in exhibition games and he hasn't allowed an earned run. He went five innings yesterday against the Cincinnati Reds, giving two hits and striking out six men. The Reds are a rather pathetic team this year, but Willard had to face some fairly stalwart hitters, including Johnny Wyrostek, Joe Adcock, Dick Sis-ler and Andy Seminick. But two singles, one a pop fly by Sisler that fell just out of the reach of Second Baseman Earl Weaver, constituted the attack against the young right-hander. 'Win More Than Mizell.' Vinegar Bend Mizell, highly publicized rookie left-hander, who faced the Boston Red Sox this afternoon, came to camp with all the ballyhoo, but many observers Bone Chip in Brecheen's Elbow ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.. March 19. T ARRY BRECHEEN has a ri chip, of bone in his left elbow, X-ray examination has disclosed. Dr. J. C. Middleman prescribed X-ray therapy and said if that failed, surgery would be necessary. here believe that Schmidt is not only likely to remain with the 1952 Redbirds, but to be a regular starter and to win more games than Mizell. Schmidt walked three of the Reds in his five Innings, but as a general rule he has better control than Mizell, more poise and Is a better natural athlete. He can run like an ante lope, as" he showed in the eighth inning when he put down a good bunt, intended as a sacrifice, and beat it out when Seminick ' delayed to take a look at second to see if he had a play there. Cliff Chambers collaborated with Schmidt to make the game at Tampa a shutout. Cliff worked four innings, walked four and struck out five, making nine innings without an earned run for the left-hander who did so well for the Redbirds after coming from the Pirates in a trade last summer. To make it a pleasant day for the pitchers and especially for Manager Eddie Stanky, the Car dinals found their best batting eyes and collected 20 hits to win, 11 to 0. The pleasing feature of the attack was the fact that Ken Raffensberger, .an old nemesis, was pounded for 13 hits and seven runs in five innings. It may have been a formula suggested by Stanky, but the Cardinals hit Raffensberger as though they owned him and did a lot of the slugging by hitting to the opposite field. Raffensberger has a habit of pitching inside and then out, never making the pitch too good and never putting much on the ball. The way to beat him is for the righthanded batters to hit that outside pitch to right field and the lefthanders to left. That's what the Cardinals did, Wally Westlake and Bill Johnson showing especial skill. Four for Westlake. Westlake hit four straight singles, Hal Rice hit a double and a home run besides hitting two other long drives that were caught, and Del Rice contributed a double and two singles. And Herb Gorman, playing first base, did a neat job and continued his hitting with two out of five. 1 Solly Hemus again played short and hit a single and double before being relieved by Bob Stephenson. Enos Slaughter was back on duty, playing right field. He beat out two infield hits. Fred Saigh arrived back in camp by plane and was pleased to hear that the club finally had done some heavy nitnng. 18 for Alcorn. Harold Alcorn scored 18 points to spark the Priates A.C. to a 44-42 victory over Saints A.C. in the Boys' Club invitation basketball tournament last night.

M INT JULEPS at the Kentucky Derby apparently are here to stay, but only after a one-vote victory in the Kentucky House of "Representatives, where many members think the Derby should be' a "basket lunch affair. A julep bill was approved by a 51 to 29 vote last night, then sent to the Kentucky Senate for action, One less vote would have beaten the bill, since passage required 51 votes. . . -. The bill had been expected head-on into the opposition of representatives from "dry" counties. .."

March 19 (UP) Veteran Coach Henry Frnka of Tulane will step from the athletic picture April 1 to become executive vice president of century-old Austin College, it was announced today. The announcement by Austin's president, Dr. W. B. Guerrant, came on the amiable, soft-spoken Frnka's forty-ninth birthday and confirmed rumors of such a move which have been prevalent here and in New Orleans for several months. Austin is a Presbyterian school. In returning to his alma mater in a strictly administrative post, Frnka retires from a long career in athletics which carried him from an All-Conference tackle spot at Austin College through successful coaching regimes at Lubbock and Greenville (Tex.) high schools, asistant's jobs at Vanderbilt and Temple and head coaching roles at Tulsa and Tulane. Frnka will have no connection with athletics at the school, Dr. Guerrant said. Frnka' main function in his new job will be attention to financial matters like future endowments and other promotional work in Texas and Oklahoma. In 1927, he started his coaching career at Lubbock and moved in 1931 to Greenville, where his teams five-year record of 103 wins against only eight losses and seven ties earned him the Vanderbilt post under Ray Morrison in 1936. Morrison took Frnka with him to Temple in 1940 and was swayed by Frnka's pleas to take the "small-time" Austin College vacancy when Ray left the Philadelphia school. Frnka then moved on to Tulsa, where from 1941 through 1945 his Golden Hurricanes won 31 games, lost six and tied one while appearing in five straight bowl games. In 1946. Frnka moved to Tulane and in three years coached that team to the school's first Southeastern Conference championship. But, since that time he has been under fire from Tulane alumni and newspapers because his teams haven't hit that peak again. to win quick approval, but ran Look Who's t3 -y- At -v r - a 1. ?Jy llllk Vfi . -K XX . 4B Wed.. March" 19. 1952 Hornsby Leaning to Left? Just Trying to Be Right In Lining Up His Browns By L A. McMaater ' Of the Post-Dispatch Sports Staff. LOS ANGELES, Calif., March 1& Left-handed pitchers, as well as left-handed hitters, are getting every chance to make the Browns of 1952. Six times in eight games played to date, left-handers have started and they've done well r particularly Tommy Byrne, who has pitched 10 innings in two games and has allowed only two runs, those in the last frame he worked. In his first outing against a major league club, the White Sox, Byrne pitched shutout ball for five innings, allowing only one safety, and being returned a 1-0 winner when rain ended play early. Another left-hander Mas to have been the starter today, but Bob Cain, who had drawn the assignment, fell yesterday and while he landed on his right shoulder, he suffered soreness that will keep him out of action. Right-hander Duane Pillette will start against the Cubs here in the Browns' second meeting with Phil Cavarretta's National Leaguers, and Manager Rogers Hornsby said he might let Pillette go as far as he could. Otherwise Pete Taylor, who has been a steady righthander in the exhibition games, will take over. John Klippstein and Bob Padget are due for Chicago. Decision in Texas. Hornsby denied there was any significance to the lefthanders pitching so much. "We want to see what all these fellows can do," said Rog. "We have a lot of pitchers, more than we know what to do with. We'll probably cut down on the pitchers -first, but we won't cut until we reach San Antonio. "We want to see what all those lefthanders can do, .just as we want to test all the outfielders and first basemen in camp. I was about to give George Schmees a chance to play first base in a game, but he won't play right now because he developed a blister on one of his hands. "And the infielders I'm going to give Mike Goliat more chances to play. He's looked good at times. The same for the other infielders. I can't say for sure, but it looks right now as if we'll take all the infielders a long way along the road home." How about the catching staff? There are only two receivers, Les Moss and Clint Courtney, on the roster. What about Darrell Johnson, property of the San Antonio club who has been in the Browns' camp since the squad began work at Burbank, and who caught yesterday's game? Need Three Catchers. 'I believe every major club needs three catchers," Hornsby replied. "There was a situation yesterday where we , might have got into trouble. Johnson caught all the way. ; Moss batted. We then had only Courtney. But Johnson is not on our roster. ' If we were playing with only two catchers, we mignt get into a jam by taking one out. The second fellow might get hurt. "That Johnson looked pretty good in that game with the Cubs. I like him a lot." Hornsby didn't say Johnson might have drawn that praise be cause he smashed a three-base hit with a man on base.

In the fourth he walked a man. and Hal Jeffcoat hit one over the fence. Sleater Bounces Back. Lou Sleater, who couldn't re-' tire any of six batters to whom he pitched the previous day, worked two innings and with good control, breezing past six batters. Duke Markell was tagged for a home run by Hank Sauer in the eighth and the roof fell in on Duke in the ninth when the Cubs bunched six hits for five runs.- Against Paul Minner and Turk Lown, the Browns made eight hits but were hurt by two double plays turned by the Cubs.

He was engulfed by a big group of juveniles who broke through a grandstand gate, seeking autographs: The contest drew ' 9168 fans, despite the chilly weather, and grossed $24,000. Johnny Lindell, ' the former Yankee, and Roy Welmaker, the Stars' Negro fast ball- pitcher, held the major leaguers scoreless in their three-inning stints. Fielding gems of the night were contributed by Tom Saffell, Hollywood outfielder, who made a long running catch of Eddie Robinson's short fly in the fifth, and a sensational leaping catch against Bob Ramazzotti in the sixth.
