G THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. SUNDAY MORNING. DECEMBER 27. 1953 a b cd e g S 5 f i t ! ! l Red Smith VIEWS OF SPORT FROM the Helms Athletic Foundation in Los Angeles has come an unusual sports calendar for 1954, on which each . ae is identified as an anniversary of some sort. It is noted, for example, that Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis be come oaseDau commissioner on Jan. 12, 1921; that April 22 will be the 51st anniversary ol JacK 'Root's victory over Kid McCoy for the newly - created light - heavyweight championship, and so on. This is a step toward calendar reform, but only a step. When the proper sportswriter's calendar is designed it will deal not with the year that is to come but with the year that is gone and it won't bother with dull details like months or weeks. It will concern itself only with remembered moments, and, of course, it will be drawn differently for every individual. This 1953 would begin, for one sportswriter, with the moment a 12-pound rainbow trout breaks the wrinkled surface of Laguna Del Maule; a great, cold lake a mile and a half high among volcanic peaks on the Chilean-Argentine border. The beast takes one look, filled with HAL SCHUMACHER loathing, upon a caner irom trie united States, curses horribly, and dives for the weeds. For contrast there would be another fishing scene, two guys In a boat off Key Largo, Fla., blinding sun and preposterously blue water, and a bonefish stripping line from the reel in an indescribably swift dash for the coral flats inshore. This calendar would be mostly pictures: nodding palms and hurrying horse players at Hialeah, and Con McCreary chatting with Ted Atkinson about the news from California, where Eddie Arcaro had won the Santa Anita Derby aboard Correspondent with three horses almost level on the post. "How about that finish at Santa Anita?" says Atkinson. "Three noses." "Yeah," says McCreary, "and you know whose nose is the biggest." Hal Schumacher, the bat salesman who used to pitch for the Giants, watching; a spring training game in Clearwater, Fla., between the Phillies and Reds and stiffening to attention as a Cincinnati rookie walks to the plate. "Who's he?" Schumacher asks, "Stands up there like a hitter." "Kid catcher out of Strawberry Plains, Tenn.," Hal is told, and he nods and watches the boy smash three home runs and two doubles into a stubborn wind. When the year is gone the kid's name eludes memory but the thrill of discovery remains, the sense of sitting in at the start of what may become a memorable career. Native Dancer sleeping away the morning of Derby Day in his stall at Churchill Downs while his owner, trainer and. the man who raised him on the farm Alfred Vanderbilt, Bill Winfrey and Ralph" Kercheval pose for a snapshot, laughing. "Do you want a glum one, too, in case we lose?" Vanderbilt asks the photographer . . . "Want a tip oh the Derby?" a small boy asks Winfrey an hour before post time. "Dark Star." He's a young boy, by the calendar and right one, by inches. Bill Veeck in the Tampa Terrace Hotel, surrounded by newspapermen like a defeated fighter in his dressing room. They're asking about his plans for the St. Louis Browns now that the American League has rejected his application to move to Baltimore, and he hasn't any plans because they've just been clumped into the wastebaskets. And now they're playing for keeps in the big leagues and the whole country chatters of the Milwaukee Braves, who moved when the Browns couldn't. John Partridge's promise before Jamie K., jthe colt he trains for Jim Norris, ties into Native Dancer, in the Preakness: "He'll measure his horses." Then Jamie K. charges at Native Dancer in the stretch, missing by inches and in the Belmont, Native Dancer charges at Jamie K. and makes it by inches. The Yankees are flying and then they're floundering and everybody's asking what's the trouble with them. "I don't know," says Marty Marion, manager of the Browns, "but I'd like to have the same troubles." ' Moonlight on the lake at Saratoga, steaks on the grill outside Con Mccreary's cottage, and truth lying mangled in the sand as laughter wings through the soft night. The World Serles-and Casey Stengel . . . Bobo Olson hanging Randy Turpin up on the ropes to dry . . . Kid GaVilan unexpectedly, incredibly, floored by Carmen Basilio in Syracuse . . .

Copyright, 1953 Inquirer Tennis PanchostoPlay In Classic Here 1 By JOHN" DELL Continued from First Sports Page beat Little Pancho, 6-2, 6-3, in the final. Gonzales also will have to play Frank Sedgman, the ace of Au stralia's three most recent Davis Cup triumphs, and Don Budge, the man no one less than the late Big Bill TUden called the "perfect" player after he achieved the leat, unmatched before or since, of winning all four of the world's big amateur titles (American, British, Australian and French) in a single year. Hell have to meet them all, and possibly Jack King, six-time professional king, since every player meets every other one in the tournament. WON PRO TOURNEY Gonzales figures he's ready to resume swapping shots in such company. He stayed in shape by playing steadily during his off year. He even won the U. S. pro tournament at Cleveland. There's no end in sight for Gonzales. He's only 25, at his physical peak. He still has his wide assortment of shots, including a backhand compared to the great one possessed by Budge and the jet like service that was electronically clocked by Franklin. Institute scientists at 112.88 miles an hour. That's the greatest accurately measured speed of a tennis ball on record. Gonzales attended school, more or less irregularly, through the 10th grade. When he was old enough to make it legal, he quit. Pancho then devoted himself to tennis with a singleness of purpose rare m a boy so young. He won a few junior tourna ments before enlisting in the war time Navy. In 1947, after he got out, he borrowed an entry blank for the Southwest Pacific Tournament and got it accepted because of his service record. He reached the finals before being put out by Ted Schroeder. A year later ne won the National singles title. He did it again the next year by blasting Schroeder off the courts. Nineteen forty-nine also was the year Gonzales won the U. S. indoor championship and helped win the Davis Cup. He beat Sedgman, 8-6, 6-4, 9-7, and Billy Sidwell, 6-1, 6-3, 6-4, as Australia was defeated, 4-1. This will be the first time since then he'll be meeting Sedgman, who took over the world's amateur rule when Gonzales turned pro. Sedgman has improved tremen- duosly since then, many think enougn to oeat uonzaies, winner of Inquirer events in 1950 and 1952 GUN NO CONV1NCER That, of course, must be proven at the Palestra on Jan. 5-6-7. Some think the only sure way to stop Gonzales is to shoot him. But even that's been tried without success. In 1951, as Gonzales and two companions were leaving a cafe, they were confronted by a revol ver-wielding gentleman, less than a month out of San Quentin. Des pite authority-backing requests, Gonzales refused to comply. The gunman pressed the trigger of his weapon twice. It failed to fire. Which proved what tennis players knew all along. You can't blast through Gonzales defense 'and watch out for his return fire! ::-: f :'::v;;.....v::..y oio" .:-: wwm&mmimsmm Penn Helped Rose Bowl Rise Sports Memories Charts at Tropical rrrifht 1953 T Trlaagle PabHeaUaew. tee.

Ken Wiesner, The Man Who Came Back, will return to Philadelphia the evening of Friday, Jan. 22, and defy gravity again at Convention Hall in the 10th annual Inquirer Games. It was here that the elongated Navy dentist first inscribed his name in the record books, and now he has demonstrated that it can be done, he has de Rosen Tops AL Sluggers; Doby Clips Strikeout Mark Heliowise Wins Coast Inaugural ARCADIA, Calif.. Dec. 26 (UP) Heliowise, a field horse and land, and an additional batting lightweight of 16 entries, today honor for teammate Al Rosen scored a nose victory in the $24,- highlighted the American League's 200 Palos Verdes Handicap, open- final statistical release for 1953 NEW YORK, Dec. 26 (AP) .The smashing of a 39-year-old strike out mark by Larry Doby, Cleve ing day's feature of the 50-day Santa Anita winter meeting. Claimed less than two months ago for $10,000, Heliowise ran like a stakes horse today under a good ride by Jockey Pete Moreno as he 1 fought it out in the stretch with Cyclotron and outgamed that renowned campaigner as well as such famed turf stars as Mark-Ye-Well, Hill Gail and Indian Hemp, among others. The veteran Phil D. was third, while the three-year-old Imbros was fourth in the six-furlong race. RETURN'S $38.50 Despite being coupled with two other horses, Heliowise, carrying 107 pounds, returned $38.50, 12.40 and 6.80; Cyclotron $7.30 and 4.90, and Phil D. $7.20 to show. The race was run in the blazing fast time of 1.09-25 as the track turned out unusually fast for the opening day with several cheap horses running in under 1.10 for the distance. Heliowise earned $14,950. A crowd of 62.000, third largest opening day at Santa Anita, saw the favored entry of Mark-e-Well and Hill Gail finish seventh and eleventh, respectively. today. These official averages show that Doby fanned 121 times, breaking the old mark by one. It was 6et by Gus Williams, St. Louis Browns, in 1914. Doby and Mickey Mantle, New York Yankees, tied for this dubious honor in 1952 at 111 strike outs. CLIMAXES BANNER YEAR Rosen, the league's most valuable player, compiled the highest slugging average, .613. The third baseman had 367 total bases in 599 times at bat. His extra-base output included 27 doubles, five triples and 43 home runs. By winning the slugging title, Rosen climaxed a banner year. He also led In home runs, total bases and runs batted in (145). He fin ished one point behind Washing ton's Mickey Vernon, the league's leading batter. Gus Zernial, Athletics, was sec ond in the slugging derby with .559. Yogi Berra, Yankees, was third at .523 followed by Ray Boone, who played with Cleveland and Detroit, .519, and Vernon, 518 WILLIAMS SLUGS .901 Ted Williams, Boston, who ap peared in only 37 games, slugged a torrid SOI. Slugging averages are computed by dividing the total bases on all hits by the times at bat. Eddie Yost, who led in bases on balls in 1952, walked off again with that honor this time with 123. Minnie Minoso, Chicago White Sox, was hit most often by pitched balls, 17 times, and grounded into the most double plays, 23. The Yankees drew the most walks, 656, and drove in the most runs, 762, while Cleveland fanned the most times, 683. British Soccer (Home Turn Listed Ftnt) FIRST DIVISION signs on his new world record of 6 feet, 10 inches In the high-jump feature next month. UNFORGETABLE PICTURE The 10,000 who saw him clear 6-93 last January were left with an unforgettable picture. LaSalle's Jim Webb and Shanahan's Penn State alumnus Vic Fritts stayed with the Olympic runner-up as high as 6-6, but from there on Wiesner was on his own. He asked officials to jump the bar a notch, a quarter of an inch over the in door record established in 1937 by another Marquette . University jumper, Ed Burke. "The bar now is set at 6-9 announcer Pinky Sober intoned, straining to cover the excitement he felt. Tf Wiesner makes it, it will be a new world's record." Athletes jogging around the track, coaches bustling to get their men in line, officials headed for the referee's table, even small fry hustling for the hot-dog stands-all were frozen in their tracks. MISSED 1ST TRY In this tableau the clatter of the cross-bar sounded like the roof falling in and the oh's and ah's of disappointment indicated that the spectators regarded it as equally tragic! Wiesner had missed. But, if possible, the tension was even greater as the long, lank Mid-Westerner prepared for his second effort. And this time approach, take-off and spring proved perfect and so did the landing on the canvas matting beyond the standards. When the sprawling Wiesner looked up, an unspoken prayer on Lhis lips, the cross-bar was not even UU1VC11X1K. It was the second indoor criterion to be shattered in the course of the evening. The amazing Hani son Dillard already had taken the 50-yard high hurdles to six sec onds flat. Announcement from the Great Lakes Naval Station yesterday that Wiesner will defend Inquirer laurels Jan. 22 meant that both record-smashers will be here again. They are among a contingent of five U. S. Olympic stars thus far enrolled for the banked-board carnival. The others, of course, are the Rev. Bob Richards, the world's ranking pole valuter; Lindy Remi-gino, the 100-meter champion, and Browning Ross, the Penn AC's ex- Villanovan who competes in the Lawson Robertson Memorial Two Mile Run. Dillard's hurdles record stood up through the winter's assault, but Wiesner was not content to let mat ters rest in the high jump. The 1944-45-46 National Collegiate AA titlist used the mark he set here as a springboard to greater heights. He enjoyed the most successful campaign of his career. Although tied by Drake's Olympian Arnold Betton in the Massachusetts K. of C. meet, by Texas' Olympic champion Walter (Buddy) Davis in The Washington Star Games and by Florida's J. Lewis (Poppa) Hall in the Millrose Games, Wiesner had to settle for second place only once in 10 major appearances. He has competed 30 times since he hit the comeback trail, and in a highly specialized event not usually associated with consistency he has not placed lower than fourth rarely that far back.

Veteran hunters seldom have the success enjoyed by a 13-year-old Fort Pierce lad recently on his firs deer hunt. O. L. (Sonny) Peacock, Jr., grandson of the late William S Vare, U. S. Senator from Pennsyl vania, leveled the sights of a .38-.55 rifle on a bounding six-point buck deer and brought him down with a single shot at a distance of 360 yards on his father's ranch in St. Lucie county. And all this happened before the lens of a television camera. The TV cameraman' happened to be along on the trip, taking film for a Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) station which is running a series of such movies. In addition to the TV camera man, Charles Ralston, other wit nesses included the boyjs father ana rancn foremen Kiroy Morgan and Harry Kelly. The entire incident was captured on film to con vince any doubters. The buck weighed about 125 pounds and dressed down to 90 pounds. Peacock has been teaching his son to handle guns since he was 7 years old, but this was the first time he had been taken on a deer hunt. He shot the animal just be fore it bounded into the brush. The weapon used was a Winchester Model 93, a rather rare model, which the boy had taken care of for his father for some years. So delighted was Peacock with his son s feat that he pre sented him with the rifle on the spot. W. Chester Players Star in Soccer Victory SARASOTA, Fla., Dec. 26 (AP). An all-star team made up of star players from Eastern colleges today defeated the Uni versity of Florida soccer club, 3-1. Mike Roman, West Chester (Pa.) Teachers, got the all-stars off to an early lead with a goal to the first quarter. Tony Puglisi, also West Chester Teachers, scored the second all stars' goal in the third and still another West Chester player, Henry ' McQuiston. put on the finishing touches with a third goal. - By JOHN DELL "POWL game days are upon us XJ again. This is a traditional! state of conditions, as much a part of Mew Year's Day as the Philadelphia Mummers or the morning-ftfter feeling. The growth of the bowl tradition, aided by press and radio and catapulted recently by television, hasn't been painless and it still hasn't reached that Utopian state. All sports fans are interested in the actual games played annually in some of the Nation's warmer cities. Heavy thinkers on the post season spectacles are of two schools: One holds the games are scandalous commercialization with underpaid (or, excuse it, unpaid) athletes toiling through the Christ mas holidays for the profit of their schools and promoters; the other says they are the climax each sea son of a great American game. which in turn is, of course, the rep- U-esentation of the full flowers of American youth, or something. . BUT when they talk about cutting out the . games, nobody takes them too seriously. The bowl games have been going on yearly since 1916, when the directors of the New Year's celebration in a small California town decided to make a fixture of a scheme they worked 14 years earlier. It is still going on, -just as it has through two World Wars, under the name of the Rose Bowl. The Rose is the grandfather of all bowls. The second oldest, the East-West Shrine game, didn't start until 1925. The Sugar and Orange Bowls came along 10 years later, the Sun rose in 1936 and the Cotton in 1937. The 'Gator was first played in 1946. Others, such as the Cigar, Pineapple, Tangerine and Salad, are even younger, The Tournament of Roses at Pasadena was 11 years old when football was added to the act. Fielding H. (Hurry Up) Yost's "point-a-minute" Michigan team defeated Stanford, 49-0, before 8000. A $4000 profit was made on the game on seats sold for $.50 and $1, with an additional $1 charged those who wanted to park wagons on the grounds. The next year the Tournament of Roses returned to chariot races and other afternoon diversions after its impressive morning parade. OUT the chariot races lost their luster by 1916 ano somebody remembered the 1902 football game Washington State was matched with Brown. The trip was a glor ious excursion for the Brown play ers, who as representatives of the East, football's citadel, didn't take the Westerners seriously. . So Washington State took Brown, 14-0. The next year the Tournament's operators pulled a master stroke by getting Penn to go West. The Quakers had won seven, lost two and tied one. Coach Bob Fblwell had four Ail-Americans end Henry Miller, fullback J. Howard Berry, guard Charley Henning and tackle Lou Little.

Then Oregon droves 70 yards for a touchdown. Shy Huntingdon threw 15 yards on Penn's reverse-play for the TD. In the fourth quarter, Oregon's Johnny Parsons went 42 yards on a twisting run to Penn's one before being nailed by Berry. Huntingdon scored around end and later stopped Penn's last threat with an interception that ended a 79-yard Quaker march. . Penn's only Rose Bowl trip ended in a 14-0 defeat, but the Quakers helped put the game on a sound footing. The 1916 revival had lost $11,000 and the 1917 game would have been the last if Penn easily the biggest "name" school to appear in the Bowl up to that time hadn't lured a profitable crowd.

Walsall JfTJonrrnft of. nhnrt. TTnma T?nn 'Rnlrpr Newport ! "" " . at mird ana ai bimmons, ins Speaker, Ty Cobb and Chuck Klein, outfielders. Let's look 'em over: GORDON STANLEY COCH RANE, born April 6, 1903, at Bridgewater, Mass., came here after Connie Mack had purchased the whole Portland (Pacific Coast League) club to make sure of his acquisition. j He was worth it. He joined the A's in 1925, and they were in that pennant race. "How it is we're going so hot this year, Mr. Mack, when we didn't do nearly so well last year?" Simmons asked Baseball's Oldest Inhabitant. "There's the difference," Mr. Mack replied, nodding toward Cochrane. Cochrane remained here through 1933. guided Detroit to pennants in 1934-35, served as coach and had a big league career average of .320. ROBERT MOSES GROVE, born March 6. 1900, at Lonaconing, Md., was Cochrane 's great battery mate. Owning an unbelievable fast ball, he once spoiled an experiment with a new patented type of glass, shattering the pane. Lefty is the last Philadelphia pitcher to win 30 games in a season, taking 31 in 1931, is the last major leaguer to win 300 games in a career. JAMES EMORY FOXX, born Oct. 22 1907, at Sudlersville. Md began his major league career with the A's in "25 and finished with the Phils in '45. In three World Series he hit .344, walloped four homers and drove in 11 runs. Now living in St. Petersburg,) Fla, he slammed 20 or more homers for 12 consecutive years for a total of 534, the highest ever amassed by a righthand swinger. Hit 58 homers in 1932. NAPOLEON LAJOIE, born Sept. 5. 1875, at Woonsocket, R. I, and now living in retirement in Florida, was a leading figure in the famous Pennsylvania Supreme Court Deci sion of 1902. He had quit the Phils to go with the A's; the Court issued an injunction which prevented him frpm playing for any team in Pennsylvania save the Phils, and for many years, even as manager of the Cleveland club (called the "Naps"), he had to by-pass Phila delphia. Old-timers insist he was the general manager here in '50. He most graceful of infield ers. DAVID JAMES BANCROFT, born April 20, 1892, at Sfoux City, la., covered short for the Phillies' 1915 NL champions, stayed here until 1920 and later managed the Boston Braves. A switch-hitter who threw right, Bancroft's nickname reflected his ability in the field "Beauty." " JOHN FRANKLIN BAKER, born March 13, 1886, at Trappe, Md., hit homers to win two games for the A's in the 1911 World Series. He led the AL four times in homers once with a total of eight! In the era of the dead ball he had a lifetime average of .308 and was proficient afield. In 1915, after most of the other Mack stars had been sold or traded. Baker refused to report, went to the Yankees in miff ' uiu. t ALOYSITJS HARRY SIMMONS. born May 22, 1903, at Milwaukee, had a batting stance so wide and open that he was said to have "his foot in the bucket." Jibes by veterans sent him to Mr. Mack in "24, his first year here, with a question about changing his style. "Never mind what they say, AL" Mr. Mack said. "I'm satisfied. Simmons, who played with the White Sox, Tigers, Senators, Reds and Red Sox before winding up his playing career with the A's in '44, had a lifetime major league average of 334. TRISTRAM E.

"Spoke" managed Cleveland to the 1920 world" championship and is now a prominent citizen of that city. His lifetime average .344. TYRUS RAYMOND COBB, born Dec. 18, 188G, at Narrows. Ga.. had a lifetime average of .367, highest in history. The game's greatest player closed his career with the A's, hitting .357 in 1927 and .323 in 1928, his 24th AL season. Fiercely competitive, he was incensed . one day when C. Mack mentioned the possibility of using a pinch-hitter. "A pinch hitter for me?" he flared. "Give me that bat," He doubled to right. CHARLES HERBERT KLEIN, born Oct. 7, 1905, at Indianapolis, j came to the Phils from Fort Wayne ; i:i 1928 and was an immediate and : flamboyant success. He led the NL; four times in homers, twice in RBIs. He served as Phils' coach from 1942 through '45. j Chuck lived for years in north-' east Philadelphia as a popular fig-'; ure but ailing health forced him to return to his native city .
