" WEDNESDAY, MAY 8, 1046 Nation's Fight Followers Mourn Passing of Big Little Promoter Southern League Race Gets Hotter Fourth Place Pelicans But a Single Game . Behind the Leaders ^> BY HAKOIJO FOKEMAN United Press Sports Writer ATLANTA, Ott., May 8. (UP1 — The surging Atlanta Crackers were only a hair name out ol first place Wednesday in tlic torrid Southern Association pennant race and It now appears that the Cracker ])!icli- ing staff, tabbed :il Die start ol the season as the test in the league, has at long last hit its stride. For the second evening in succession, the Memphis Chicks were uble to garner but a. paltry three nits off Crackers liuriinb as they went down in defeat, 11-3, Tuesday night in the finnl game of a four-game series in Atlanta which th* Crackers took three games tu one. The Chicks, still tiec\ with the New Orleans Pelicans for the loop lead, chas'.d professor Einil Loch- bauin with a three-run uprising in the fourth inning but from then on it was just a case of the Chicks hatters going up 10 the jiliite to make the game legal. Shelby Kinney, a brilliant rkjht- liancler, relieved Loclibaum vyith two out iu the fourth and hurlc'u" hitless ball for the remaining five and one-third innings to rack :ip his fourth triumph of the season. The Crackers backed their, hurler up with a n-hit attack off Don Dunker, the loser, and Jim Voi- selle which included Babe . Ellis' thfrcl hom e run of the season in the. eighth with ouc on. New Orleans Near Tap •At New Orleans, the Chattanooga Lookouts moved to within one game of the top by taking one of the wildest slugfcsts of the season from the Pelicans, 13-12. Ten pilch- trs. six for the Lookouts and four J r the Pelicans, paraded to the mmd as 27 hits were pounded to I coiners of the lot. Two of the Lookouts- 14 hits were homers, one by Joe Mack in the first with two on and the other by Joe Zardan in the eighth with one *n. Olivrio Ortiz, fourth of the Lookout hurlers, received credit for iliii win while Fred Wells, third of the Pelican pitchers, was charged with th e loss. Six errors by the Pelicans contributed to the wild scoring. Tn the only other Southern League game completed, the Birmingham Barons took the measure of the Ll£t*e Rock Travelers, 5-2, at Birmingham. Two games were scheduled but the first was called off ^BLYTHEVItj,F: (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TODAT'S SrORT rAKADE By OSCAK FRA1.KY Unitrd Pi-ess Sports Writer NEW.YOKK, May 8. i UP)—The great white way was lonelier than ever today for the little man in the black, derby was gone. He had been around since the ga.s light era of the gay nineties, this miniature man with the body of a sparrow and the heart of an eagle. But tliat heart gave out yesterday nnd James Joy Johnston is dead. They'll miss him along Broadway and wherever the light mob gathers, this strutting liitlc link with the legendary past. They'll miss thai cocky arrogart figure. Yes, they'll even miss thin caustic, vitriolic tongue and the shot-king vocabulary it could unloose. But then Jimmy came by It honestly. He was a rare man at 70, Jimmy iras, out n tiny English immigrant doesn't battle his way up in an Irish East Side neighborhood without bringing along a bit of the flavor. You couldn't hold that against him. "I've been belled many a time but I've always Ijelted back." he was wont to suy. He did. He had to when, as an eieht-yenr-old, his parents cime killer over from his native UverjXMl The Irish kids wouldn't leave him alone alwnys he sought the bright but, when (he 75-ixnmd Jimmy went! filare of ulll)lltlt J " to work in the local foundry, tis, I far fmnou JTM < I Hut all lie did was slop lighting for money. Never, and light up to yesterday when the biggest referee of all tolled the ten. did Jimmy ever back away from a brawl. Meanwhile, he was building one of boxing's greatest stables. They called him 'Tops." this little guy with the flashing tongue wiio could speak louder, lousier and faster than anybody else in the business. They listened', too. because if they got out of line he'd personally lake'them in hand. It was a painful process —as lightweight O*-en Moran once discovered. He had the brains, too, enough to become known as the "boy bandit." In the days when managers telegraphed results lo newspapers, Jimmy's boys always won. lie sent the result before the fight.- The tales of his shrewdness are legion and (he llltle man- in the derby bcame a fabulous character. • He look Gypsy Daniels, n second rate Welsh heavyweight, and put him in a bandanna nnd gold earrings lo make a'sensational drawing card. He took a Huston Kalian and attracted all Chinatown by calling him As Chung, tlic Canton I Yankees Decide To Use Airlines For All Travel NKW YORK, Mfll' 8. (U,P.)-New York Yankee players, by n vote or 41 to 3, have decided to travel by air exclusively for the remainder of Die season H ml will make their first trip next Monday, Yankee President Larry MncPhnll ld today. MucPhall said he hus .signed a contract wllh united Airlines, which has assigned a 44-passeneiT four-engiiuHl mainllner o f (he C-5-! type lo the dill) and named the plane th,« "Yankiv Miiinllner." The Yankees are the first inn lor league club to (ravel exclusively l-y nir. soon learned to respect those 'ready fists, time at all he was the foreman. But that didn't satisfy the little guy so he turned boxer. It went we)l for a while, but then came kayo at the hands of Danny Dougherty. "A man with my brains should take no chances of having them knocked out." Johnston lold himself. That's when he quit the ring and turned to managing prize fighters. — which made him successful as a manager, promoter and publicist. He was famous for Ills "Johnston—ami spell it with a T." Yet through all these rowdy, riotous years, little Jimmy Johnston remained a loyal, abstentious family man who was proud of his 10 kids and prouder yet. In later years of those 10 grandchildren. As they grew, so did his fame in the game fate picked out for him. And now he's gone. But they do say it was a far way the little man with the big voice traveled.
