Pndgen to end Sunday f oft ball playing here reached a stalemate tonight. Rev. Pridrren was undecided whether he would try to halt a game tomorrow with the same method he attempted to put into force last Sunday. The minister then took a sound truck to the park and read Scriptures and sang hymns over a loud speaker to the fans at the game. The game continued through nine innings. "I have not decided whether to attempt to halt another game tomorrow on account of curiosity seekers." Hcv. Pridgen said. He termed Sabbath softball playing as "a desecration of the Lord's Day." Mayor Henry W. Lockwood took iSand in the' matter tonight and firmly stated that neither Rev. rridgen. nor rny other minister, should intertcre. '"The Polica Department will keep order.'' Lockwood said. "After working all week a man has a right to recreation on Sunday." One Charleston minister characterized Rev. Pridgen's activities as peculiar tactics" and an "attempt to force religion down the throats of people." physical fitness, signed by examin ing physicians, but were spared the physical tests, that were to include 50 and 100-yard dashes.

SOUTHERN ASSOCIATION Motor Boat Racers To Qualify Saturday By The United Press ATLANTA, Ga., July 22 "Pa" Stribling, who quit the fight game broken-hearted when his son W. L. "Young" Stribling died, tonight was talking of five-figure gates again because he has found another "Young" he hopes to develop into aheavyweight champion. L." Died. He is chockful of anecdotes about the 10 years he campaigned with his son, always contending for. but never quite attaining the heavyweight crown. His favorite tale is about the Mike McTigue bout at Columbus, Ga.. in 1923, when Joe Jacobs, now Tony Galento's manager, had his first opportunity to yell "We wuz robbed." Joe, managing McTigue, had agreed to the fight because it looked like a good opportunity for Mike to pick up a nice purse against the "unKnown stribling. W. L.. however, slugged it out with McTigue, and the referee, the late Harry Ertle, gave Stribling the decision. Jacobs set up a yell that the Ku Klux Klan had intimidated Ertle into giving Stribling the verdict. The referee changed his decision later while on the train well away from Columbus and YusseL. was placated. With the annual big motorboat regatta set for the North Park Lagoon two weeks from today, Mid-East Outboard Association racers will get their last chance to qualify Saturday and Sunday in a sanctioned meet under the auspices of the Glenwillard Boat Club in the Ohio River at Glenwillard. Goldberg Choice For All Stars CHICAGO. July 22 Linesmen from Mid West colleges, stronghold of power football, appeared today to have swept the race for places on the team that will meet New York Giants, national Professional Foot ball champions here in the sixth an nual All-Star game Aug. 30 Balloting closed at midnight and votes swamped tabulators, who hoped to have final results compiled by Tuesday. They estimated the total would exceed 8,000,000. The o bulk of those helped to place 12 Mid West athletes among today s 20 leaders. Leading the balloting for end3 was Brown, Notre Dame, followed by Bowden Wyatt, Tennessee; Young, Oklahoma, and Holland.- Cornell. v Three Mid West tackles. Beinor. Notre Dame; Mihal, Prudue. and Haak, Indiana, and Texas Christian's Hale held their leads. An All-Mid West coterie of guards seemed possible, with Heikkinen, Michigan ; j Twedell and Bell, Minnesota, and Bock, Iowa State, leading. Ne- orasKa s taiemea Brock seemed a cinch to get the starting assignment at center, well ahead of Ki Aldrich, Texas Christian, and Humphrey. Purdue. Pacing all players in number of votes compiled was Davey O'Brien, Texas Christian's quarterback, whose nearest opponent for the starting assignwent was Patterson, Baylor. Two Big Ten stalwarts, Howie Weiss, Wisconsin, and Larry Buhler, Minnesota, led the fullbacks. Only ""small-college" gridders who appearea assured pf a place on the squad were Bronko Smilanich, Arizona, whose popularity in the Minnesota "Arrowhead" country, his home, helped keep him among the favorite halfbacks, and Pug Mander,, hard-driving Drake back. Marshsll Goldberg, Pttsburgh All-Amsrican, and Bob MacLeod, Dartmouth's backfield spark, also seemed to have cinched positions. Leaders today: George M. Weaver, chairman of the Glenwillard regatta committee, announced yesterday that a sched ule of 10 heats each day had been arranged. The start is scheduled at 1:30 daylight saving time each day. Among the entries already received are those of Jimmy and Mary Altman, of New Kensington; Ernie Call, of Willoughby. O.; Ken and Dorothy Frank, George Mishey, Gina Temple, and Mort and Ann Mandell, of Cleveland; Ralph Meyer and Bernie Weaver, of Fort Wayne, Ind., and Plum Rush, of Canonsburg. The meet will be a benefit for the Junior Drum and Bugle Corps. C. C. Hearold is commodore of the Glenwillard Club. E. J. Dolan will be referee, Ken Scott starter and Dr. J. Staunton Saling judge. Dr. Saling, chairman of the North Park meet, will hold a meeting of his official committee at his office aE 9 o'clock Thursday evening to go over final arrangements. He reports indications of a record-breaking entry for a local meet. There is no other big meet in the East that dav and the leading drivers of that section will converge here to vie with the Mid-East drivers, who will stage their annual championships. W. L."s death in a motorcycle smash-up six years ago left deep furrows in '"Pa's" once-cherubic cheeks. But these disappear when he describes his new fighter, Young Allen. "The kid's developing into a nice puncher." said "Pa." "He's only 21. and. you remember, W. L. didn't reach his peak until he was 25." Allen weighs 185," is a six-footer, and has had enough bumps to make him punch-wary, according to his mentor. He hasn't done much pro fessional fighting yet. his best per formance being a decision over the veteran Corn Griffin. "Pa" hopss to begin the long trail back to the big-time when Allen meets the old warhorse, Johnny Risko, Aug. 1. The bout will be staged in Macon, old Stribling stronghold, where "W. L." as a kid, toughened his jaw and knuckles by trading punches with hardy young share-croppers. "Pa," who grew wise in the ways of fight management by handling "W. L." in more than 300 bouts, is not returning to the game with all his chips depending on a single draw. He also has his finger in the promotion of a bout here between Ben Brown, Atlanta middleweight, and Teddy Yarosz, former cham pion, on Aug. 8. In addition, Stribling plans to promote a series of cards here this summer and fall. He is dickering to hold the bouts in the Atlanta ball park, which can seat 25.000. Pa managed "W. L.," in partnership with "Ma" Stribling. but now he is going it alone. Ma is in Texas, where her mother is seriously ill. Pa still appears youthful despite the fact he's on the shady side of 55 and has strayed a lot since "W. Nats Whip Cleveland (Continued from Page 1) -bases loaded, and two by the York.

A resolution to reduce the number of " all-star games about the country was discussed at length and tabled.

STOWE- A.ria'n.lf t Polka. ss . 1 Hlebitz.l Rupp't. ct Johnstown Runs Third (Continued from Page 1) tie for first money. He pulled up on the pride of Maryland in the closing yards but the distance was just a trifle short. Earns $35,000 The winning margin was between a Jong head and a shor neck, but it was enough to earn Challedon $35,600 net and boost his earnings for the season to $114,310 and for two years to $182,010. It was enough as well to repay his backers $29.20 and $8.40 to win and place. Sun Lover, second choice, paid $6.40 to place and picked up $6000. There was no show betting. Johnstown earned $4000 for third and Heather Broom carried down $2000 for fourth. Total Eclipse. v Viscounty, Unerring and Yale O'Nine were scratched. Challedon's triumph reopened the race toward the? divisional title and evened his score with Johnstown at two apiece. Trainer Lou Schaeler said the colt reached a peak today and that the triumph should definitely end talk that he is only a mud horse. Most of the spectators agreed and after the first spontan eous boos for Johnstown died away the tune was all "Maryland, My Maryland." Only this time the lyric was changed to "Challedon, My Challedon." Kayak Eaty Wnntr ! In Coast Event Bv The United Press INGLEWOOD. Cal..

The four-year-old winner of the last $100,000 Santa Anita Handicap vindicated the faith of 45,000 cheering fans, who installed him a post- time 2 to 5 favorite, by flashing across the finish line of the mile and one-quarter feature, five lengths ahead of Townsend Martins Eastern handicap king. Cravat. A. A. Baroni's Specify finished third. The Argentine flyer served notice that he was ready to take Sea-biscuit's place in going ' after Sun Beau's all-time money record for Owner Charles S.
