TEN Want Ad Headquarters. Court 4500 THE PITTSBURGH PRESS Other Departments, Court 5450 SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1939 A-" 4 UlV ' Williams Among Those Who Will See Army-Irish Tilt Will Be 'Biff Jones CHICAGO Among the 125.000 who will watch the Army shoot the works against Notre Dame this afternoon in the standout football game of the day at Soldiers Field on the snow-swept shores of old Lake Michigan will be Mr. "Biff" Jones. You will remember Mr. Jones as a former Army coach, and a very successful one. Such are the adventures of the life of a soldier that he is likely to be a great football coach one year and an obscure officer doing duty in the hinterlands the next. , At the moment Mr. "Biff" Jones is catching up in his lessons as an artillery expert at TTr-ii-t- Siill x 7 Vi i Vi ic an Armtr unit in t Vi virinttv ' y, i"?,! of the thriving metropolis of Lawson, Okla. '"t'Jr Today Mr. Jones will sit in the press box in ths capacity of a held observer and watch the team he developed try to maintain its unbeaten record. There will be a telephone at Mr. Jones' service and between halves he will communicate with his successor, Major Ralph Sasse on the Army bench and reveal to him his observations of the conduct of the battle. To get to the game Mr. Jones made a non-stop flight through snow storms that required eight hours of flying. To get back to his post in time for a resumption of his artillery lessons he will be compelled tn make a similar trip. This i.s just one of the little ordeals an Army man will endure to see the cadets in action. Mr. Jones' Pilot Is His Former Quarterback MR. JONES' pilot is a youngster named "Chick" Harding, an aviator of high courage and skill. Four years ago this same "Chick" Harding played quarterback under Jones in the most thrilling game the Army and Navy ever played, a 21-21 tie. Singularly this game was played here at Soldiers' Field, and Harding's strategy was an important contribution to the Army's spirited offensive. Mr. Jones is about town limping and wearing a cane. It appears that a few weeks ago he agreed to act as the referee in a football game. One of the young gents in the game got away to a long run down the sideline and Mr. Jones, true to his sacred obligations, tried to keep up with him. The pace was not only bit warm but the field was not well manicured but the pursuit had not gone very far before Mr. Jones stepped into a gopher hole and spread his esthetic features in the dirt. This not only demonstrated to Mr. Jones that he's not a man he used to be but that a too strict loyalty to duty is not intelligent. "After this when I referee a football game," says Mr. Jones, "I am going to do it in a rocking chair." 'Another Interesting Spectator JFill Be Captain Von Luckner ANOTHER INTERESTING and interested spectator among the 125,000 today will be Captain Felix von Luckner. perhaps the most heroic figure in the German Navy. The story of Von Luckner and the immortal cruiser Emden is known to all who are familiar with the grisly romance of the World War. When the bloody storm broke Von Luckner was idling in the waters of the South Sea. It was up to him to decide whether he would surrender outright or go out and survive in battle as long as he could. It is a matter of record that he became a most annoying problem to the Allies and it was not until ne had sent a number of ships to the bottom of the sea that he was cornered. One of the fine things Von Luckner is remembered for is his humane treatment of enemy officers and men. Always he made certain that no lives were lost before he commanded his gunners to fire. His happiest moments today are devoted to reminiscing over the evenings he spent in his cabin with captured English officers, wining and dining. "When I look back to those days," he said, "I really think the war was worth while." Not many people know that this great sailor was once a preliminary boxer around New York. He performed in many of the small clubs in his fledgling days. "I took a lot of beatings and got no money," he tells you, "but it was a lot of fun more fun even than going to sea." Von Luckner 's early days in New York were spent as a sort of junior Janitor around the Majestic Hotel. One of his principal duties was to polish the brass door knobs. After the war he came back to the Majestic as an honored guest. The manager called on him. "Is everything all right?" he asked. Everything was not all right. Von Luckner didn't like the way the door knobs were polished. It seems that there is a certain art connected with polishing door knobs. He demanded that the manager bring the current door knob polisher to his room with his kit bag. "I want to show him how the job should be done." he explained. And he did. , On The Running Tracks Entries Today BOWIE LAST DAY FIRST S1.30D claiming: Maiilfn. year-olds; 7 furlonss out of chute: Spanish Bonero..l 1 5 x Yfins John . . . . 1 1 iCarnival HOiVulIo 11 f.-..,ura llSGabrielle 11J Tolil lltlitiiiulf Ipti ii.- Senonta ..i i kwrt joint. ..!'

The boys, with two new men in the lineup, looked so good in their 4-4 tie with Windsor last Tuesday night that President Roy Schooley, using excellent logic, figures a couple of more reinforcements might inspire the Jackets to win their first game in the International League. Ergo, as they say, Mr. Schooley has already signed four other men and a fifth may be added to the list some time today. The new men are Paddy Sullivan, center; Eddie Bouchard, wing; Pete Palangio, wing, and Mickey McGuire, forward. Pitt Graduate Sullivan comes from Williams-town, Ont. He is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and is a practicing dentist here. He was a member of the old Pittsburgh Yellow Jackets when those boys were winning hockey cups regularly. Bouchard was formerly a member of the New York Americans. Two years ago, with the Americans, Bouchard scored 16 goals to qualitfy as one of the leading offensive players in hockey. Last year he was with the New Haven Club, the American farm. Palangio comes to the Jackets from Les Canadiens. He was with London in the International League last season and counted 17 points as his contribution to his team's scoring total. Jacks Get Forward Mickey McGuire, forward of the Cleveland Indians of the International Hockey League, was traded yesterday to Pittsburgh for Cliff McBride, promising young recruit. McGuire was an old favorite with Cleveland fans. It is hardly likely that any of these men will be in the starting lineup tonight, although all will see service as spares. If the new defense man, who is as yet unnamed by President Schooley, is signed he will probably start the game. Otherwise the starting lineup will remain the same is it was against Windsor. The probable lineups for tonight follow: JACKETS DETROIT Cox (1 Vanne Berlett T. fprinie MoCurry D Huches Fields C Newman CrecK W Steele Froudlock W Brophy Windsor Trips Syracuse, 5-1 Bulldogs Outplay Stars Every Period; London, Detroit Draw in INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE LAST NIGHT'S RESCLTS Windsor !i Syraruse 1 Detroit - 1 London 1 Ten minutes overtime.

Rival Defenses Strong In Grid Clash Tomorrow Majesties, Olympics Ready for Whistle of Important Sandlot Conference Battle at Rainbow Gardens 'Boots' Klinzing Injured, May Not Play Following their deserving triumph over Pollard s Chicago Negro Pros last Sunday, the Majestic Radio gridders are prepared for their hardest Conference grid battle tomorrow afternoon with McKeesport Olympics at Rainbow Gardens. Realizing the Tubers-leading the league by one point, were through a hard battle in losing to South Akron Awnings, the North Side Irish intend to send their strongest lineup against Iverson's club at the startoff. Guarino and Lantz, who have been playing great ball, loom the starting wingman. Gallagher and Doc Skender have earned the regular tackle berths while Marc O'Mal-ley and Paul Karcis will hold down the guard positions. Benedict will be at center. Both Lines Formidable That's a front line which should give a good account against the Tubers. But, the latter aren't going to be weaklings, either. Minnick is a power of strength at center and a real line backer on defense. Those two solid, blocking guards, Andy Sapp and Patsy Kaletz should have an interesting scramble with O'Mal- ley and Karcis. Captain Bull Boyer or Moon Klinzing and McManus will likely be the tackles. The elongated Tom McCurdy and John English, will caper at the ends, opposite Guarino and Lantz. The respective backfield combi nations are also interesting. Neither manager has decided upon his start ers, each waiting to see who the op posing pilot intends to . use. It "Boots' Klinzing s injured side mends sufficiently to enable him to Senators Sell Art Shires To Minor Club WASHINGTON Art "The Great," Shires, one of the most talked-of baseball players, has been sold by the Washington Senators to the Milwaukee Brewers of the American Association, President Clark Griffith of the Senators announced last night. The Milwaukee Club was understood to have paid about $10,000 for Shires. don his paraphernalia, Olympics stock will rise. If not, the Tubers will be minus their best ball toter. In the event "Boots" can't play, Eddie Fyock and Dick Toline will be the halves: Barnes quarter and Weston, fullback. Realizing Zoltak's fine plunging ability, Manager Iver-son may start the former East Pittsburgh Firemen star instead of Andy Weston, who hasn't burned up the Conference so far with his smashing. Glenn May Be Used Although Manager Art Rooney is reluctant to announce his backfield array, the Olympics will probably see Jimmy Rooney at the signal barking job with Harp Vaughn and Whitmore, halfbacks. Kelsch will be the fullback rammer. Jim Levey hasn't fully recovered from a recent injury and Art Rooney refuses to say whether he'll start. Then another surprise the Iirish leader may spring is "Little Sleepy" Glenn, who hasn't been in the lineup for several weeks. With Glenn at a halfback post, the Majesties have more power as the Mountaineer star can smash off tackle, run the ends and is one of the best defensive players in the Conference. Sweeney is another chap the Olympics may find quite slippery. "Tootie's" work against the Pollards was thrilling and only surpassed by Mose Kelsch's superb line bucking. The other two league frays are scheduled between East Pittsburgh Firemen at West View Park and Dan Burns meeting Ambridge Mystics at Fair Oaks Park.

Ted Yarosz Hands Neal Neat Lacing Monaca Lad Lacks Punch to Kayo Foe at Moose : Temple Ted Yarosz, that promising young welter from Monaca, has a lot on which to ponder today. He won a fight, the main, go at Moose Temple, last night and in winning let his stock drop back quite a few points. Among other things young Mr. Yarosz proved quite definitely that he is still a boxer, a clever, hardworking craftsman who needs to pick up a punch before he goes much higher on the local fistic ladder.- Ted gave Jimmy Neal, highly touted battler from Cincinnati, as neat a lacing as has been handed out in many months. But he again failed dismally when the knockout punch could have been driven home. Lacks the Punch Fighting a typical Yarosz fight, crafty, unorthodox and punishing, Ted fought what might have been a good scrap. The punch he lacked killed it cold. The fans, ofvwhom there was no great number, didn't enthuse over the victory, one-sided as it was. Larosz weighed 145. Neal 144. The semi-final originally was scheduled between Dan Gallagher and Frank Novak, heavyweights, who a short time ago put on a swell alley battle in the Moose ring. It failed to materialize. Bout Flops In its place, Eddie Yarosz, a brother of Ted's, weighing 144, and Joe Heffman of the North Side, 144, staged a listless show. Heffman took the decision. Al lovino, the Swissvale southpaw, 122, sadly out of condition, lost to Mose Butch ofOakland, 123, in the third round by a technical knockout when Referee Al Grayber waved proceedings to an end. Al was down once in the second, a count which ended at four when the bell rang, and twice in the' third, once for seven and once for five, before Grayber intervened. lovino started out swell but weakened early. The opener, between Jackie Wilson, Homewood Negro, 120,i, and Bus Mahoney of the North Side, 121, wasn't much of a scrap. Wilson won by a technical knockout in the third. " Lombardi Answer To Coach's Prayer A true competitive athlete the kind the coaches search for and seldom find is Tom Lombardi of Jamaica, L. I. As a freshman at S y r a cuse last year he stepped into a breach three weeks before the race and stroked a mediocre eight- oared crew to an i n t e r c ollegiate championship at P o u g h k eepsie. This year he is the only sophomore in Syracuse's p ov erful line. By steady plugging the 204-pound youngster has raised himself up on even terms with a veteran for a guard position on the first team. Kearns Must Pay $300 A Month Alimony CHICAGO Jack Kearns. for- . mer manager of Jack Dempsey, received a blow below the belt, "to the pocketbook in fact, when Judge Kerner ruled yesterday in Circuit Court that he must pay Mrs. Legna Kearns $500 a month alimony. Kearns has denied that he was married and said Legna was only a "girl friend," but he has filed a suit for annulment of marriage the court pointed out, which was held as evidence that . she was Mrs. Kearns. . , i Many Dodge Al Friedman Best Heavyweight Bets Side step Emmett Rocco's Next Opponent Al Friedman, who meets Emmett Roc co of Ellwood City Monday night in the 10-round main bout at Motor Square Garden, has had some of the best heavyweight bets in the world sidestep him. Al Lippe, Friedman s manager. had accepted terms for a 15-round bout in Berlin with Max Schmeling, only to have Maxie pull out on the excuse he had injured a leg. Johnny Risko, the Cleveland baker boy, has time and again re fused to box Friedman. Offers from Risko's home city, from Boston. De troit, Buffalo, New York and Phila delphia for a match were turned down by Risko. Refused Bout He wanted none of Al's game, especially after Risko had been de feated by Emmett Rocco, and Friedman in turn twice defeated the lad whom he will tackle again here Monday. Tommy Loughran turned down a $7,500 Offer of Jake Kauffman for a match with the Boston Hebrew. Instead, he took on Ernie Schaaf, a lad Friedman had whipped, and who in turn gave Tommy a lacing. Several other leading lights have thought twice about tackling ' the Bostonian. On the other hand Rocco has never feared him, al though they have met twice, and Emmett has been beaten both times. In Good Shape The Ellwood City Italian claims to be in better shape than ever be fore right now, and is confident he will make amends for previous fail ures, by dominating the bout at the Garden Monday and winning handily. Regardless of the outcome, the battle is expected to be worth-while, with both boys givmg the fans plenty of action. Both are willing and aggressive, and it remains to be seen whether both will remain on their feet through 10 rounds of hectic milling. Jules Beck has a fine list of pre liminaries lined up, and is anticipating another big house. Motor Square hasn't had a bloomer this fall. Tom Lombardi Chicago Elects Captain t CHICAGO Samuel Horwitz, a two-year letterman and guard, yesterday was elected captain of the University of Chicago football team for 1931. Horwitz, a Chicago boy, was one of the outstanding linemen of the Big Ten Conference.

Primrose B" at Atlasburff. By BILL FAUST Three Amateur Cup games feature Sunday's soccer schedule. In one of them, Pierpoint Hudson-Essex travels to Akron, o., to meet the Goodyears Club in the second round of the competition, while Celtic goes to Morgan and Cecil goes to Bridgeville in the other two. Pierpoint's trip will be the first taken so far this season by a local club. They have prepared for the meeting and will be at full strength. Eighteen players will make the journey and leave the Union Station at 8 a. m. Sunday. On three other occasions in past seasons they have traveled to other cities and have always met formidable opponents and in tomorrow's game they will meet one of the strongest contenders for the national honor. Winning the league crown four out of five years, they now have a chance to bid for a highly honored trophy. Pierpoint has played a number of cup games, but in the league it has lost only one and that to Clan Douglas. It has been defeated, but each time has redeemed them with victories. Shinner McGinn will lead the forward line. He has been the most active man on the defense and leads his mates in scoring. Kirk, Williamson, Neiderbacker and Jones will prcbably compose the remainder of the front positions. They have been instrumental in Pier-point's victories and are relied upon for a win at Akron. The game matching Clan Douglas and Rovers at Leslie Park today brings two of the oldest and bitterest teams of the district together. They have always been in the thick of the league fight. Both play the same type of soccer where passing is highly specialized. Clan wants to bring its points to an even 20, while the Rovers seek to avenge their defeat at the hands of the Celtics. Another game that will be a test for both opponents is the Crafton Heights scrape with Union Switch & Signal at Swissvale Field. Union Switch has been hard hit and has not performed at full strength for a month. Crafton is a comparatively new team and has been going at full speed. It has passed the experimental stage and may topple Switch. The Sons of St. George when they journey to Homestead to meet Mesta Machine can replace its opponents in seventh place by winning. They have occupied the cellar position since the opening of the season and now have an opportunity to rise. Crafton Heights will meet any team in this district in a charity game. This club plays both Saturday and Sunday ball and should prove an attraction at any park. The entire proceeds will be given to an association.
