DECEMBER 20. 1953 Sport Beetle SwiftSword Winner at Tropical Apprentice Rider Seriously Hurt By BOB HORWOOD Special to The Inquirer CORAL GABLES, Fla., Dec. 19. -Putnam Stable's Swilt Sword de lighted the majority In a week-end throng of 9810 when he scored his third victory in as many starts at this meeting, easily capturing the featured Coral Gables Purse at Tropical Parle today. Four lengths back of the consistent son of Blen heim II, came Christiana Stable's Menemsha, who led R. R. Damon's Hat Box by almost a length. Swift Sword was heavily backed. despite his steadying 128 pounds, and paid $3.40 after completing the six furlongs in 1:11 2-5. Sammy Eoulmetis tapped him a couple of times in the upper stretch, but it was hardly necessary. Swift Sword had won the Gainesville and De Soto Handicaps earlier in the meeting. The day's mutuel handle was $802,968. JOCKEY INJURED W. E. Brown's Royal Battle fell heavily when caught In a tangle at the end of a quarter in the Coral Gables and Appnentice Dallas Harrier was seriously injured and rushed to Doctors Hospital, Coral Gables, after a cursory examination at the track. There have been several nasty spills at this meeting, including one in which Sidney Cole suffered head and neck injuries that hospitalized him for a few days, but Harrier was less fortunate than the others, suffering head and chest injuries. He was bleeding from the nose and from a gash behind the ear, and was suffering intense pain from chest injuries. Harrier, who is an 18-year-old Texas boy from Aransas Pass, is under contract to King Ranch and was leased for the winter by Trainer Fred Martin. VICTOR TAKES LEAD Swift Sword went to the front soon after the start of the Coral Gables, while there was a tight jam behind him, with Royal Battle in the middle. As Menemsha moved up on the rail, clear of trouble Royal Battle suddenly went iTh.

In a straight cash transaction with the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Phils acquired Mike Sandlock for an undisclosed price. Sandlock, a six-foot-one 185-pounder, was oh tained by the Bucs in October, 1952, for the same reason the Phils bought him to catch Lindell. 1 Sandlock, a switch hitter, batted 231 for the last-place Pirates in 64 games last season after he was brought up from Hollywood (Pacific Coast League). At Hollywood he caught Lindell, the former New York Yankee outfielder-turned pitcher, in all of Johnny's 33 games in '52 and helped him compile a 24-9 record. STAR IN MINORS . But Lindell, harried by a series of tough breaks, proved no ball of fire with the Bucs and came to the Phils last August on waivers. Getting Sandlock to handle Johnny's hard-to-handle knuckler was virtually an automatic follow-up. Sandlock, whose sale leaves the Pirates with a mere six catchers on a roster of 47 active players, started as a shortstop in 1938 and. except for a year in defense work in '43. has been in baseball since. He played with Montreal (International League) before going to Hollywood in '49 and was rated one of the minors' best catchers. JUST BLOCKS BALL Sandlock, a jovial fellow who's two months younger than the 6-5, 220-pound Lindell, admits he does not catch all of Johnny's knuckle shots.

Hat Box was close up on the out side, followed by Bill's Captain, Ace Var, Match Play and Our Gob. Swift Sword rapidly widened his lead, while Menemsha was engaged in a private struggle with Hat Box, eventually shaking that colt off and making a vain run at the leader. Boulmetis roused Swift Sword in the stretch, and the favorite responded readily, maintaining most of his lead without undue effort. Menemsha, who was making his seasonal debut, turned in a promising effort, while Hat Box showed some improvement.

But this patriotic South American rallied to the cause of the Ecuadorian town and be came famous. Nats BeatCeltics n TV Contest Fete Caroline In Hometown COLUMBIA, S. C, Dec. 19 (AP). Speedy J. C. Caroline, Illinois halfback, whizzed in here today for an all-out homecoming celebration despite an unexpected plane delay. when the second team All-America back landed in his four-place chartered plane, photographers had him pose on the wing before Jumping down to hug his mother, Mrs. Bennie Gordon. She did not see him in the 1953 games in which he set a Big Ten rushing record of 1670 yards. A welcoming crowd of 500 was waiting at the township auditorium. Here he received nearly. 20 per sonal gifts purchased with public subscriptions and in keeping, wel coming officials said, with tradi tional amateur athletic standards and in line with college amateur standing restrictions. He received the presents from his high school coach, J. A. McHugh of Booker T. Washington School. Today he is known, everywhere tennis is played, which, of course, is everywhere. He appears regularly against the world's best players, as he will in the Inquirer Masters Tournament at the Palestra on the nights of Jan. 5-6-7. His rivals in the round-robin tourney sponsored by the Philadel phia Inquirer Charities, Inc., will be Pancho Gonzales, the U. S. Pro Tournament champion; Frank Sedgman, great ace of Australia's three most recent Davis Cup win ners, and Don Budge, star of many Davis Cup victories, former pro champion and only man ever to win the world's four top amateur titles American, British, Australian and French in the same year. UNIQUE GRIP Segura also will pit his unique, two-handed grip against Jack Kramer, seven-time world professional champion in doubles com petition, which will be held in con nection with singles each night of the tourney under the ideal con ditions offered by the Palestra, on 33d St., below Walnut. But if Segura hadn't been tapped to defend his town's honor several years ago he'd be just another peon today. Little Pancho was pretty fair shakes as a tennis player even in those days. He started playing when he was so small he had to use two hands to swing a racquet. He's never changed his grip, which gives terrific speed and pace to his strokes. CARETAKER'S SON Pancho learned his way around a tennis court because his father was the caretaker of the town's Clamp 'Fouls9 EasyTEd's Shot BOSTON, Dec. 19 ( AP) . Television viewers were treated to a basketball rarity today in the Na-tional Basketball Association game between Syracuse and Boston in Boston Garden. In the third period Boston's Easy Ed Macauley was awarded a free throw. He lofted the ball toward the basket, but it just nestled on the small metal clamp which joins the ring of the basket to the backboard. It didn't budge. What happens in a case like this? The officials declared a jump ball at the free throw line and of course Macauley didn't get the point. Veteran basketball observers recalled many times when the ball has snuggled on the ring support during a close-in lay-up shot, but none could remember it happening on a shot from the free throw line. Take 2d Place Huskies Take No. 6 to Keep Perfect Record STORRS, Conn., Dec. 19. St. Joseph's hustling Hawks gave undefeated Connecticut a stiff tussle before dropping an 85-77 decision before more than 3000 tonight. The Philadelphlans became Connecticut's sixth 'victim . and lost heir second game in six as the home team came from behind in the last two minutes. Five men dominated the scoring in the thriller. Bill Lynch, St. Joseph's 6-foot-6 sophomore center, had a game-high total of 25 points. Leo Breslin, his 6-foot-3 senior teammate, was second with 23. Art Quimby -topped Connecticut with 20, while mates Jack Bushwell and Dick Watson each had 19. ZONE TROUBLES HAWKS The victory, which atoned for a 78-69 upset suffered by Coach Hugh Greer's Huskies last season at Philadelphia, evened the short series between the teams at 1-1. Coach Johnny McMenamin's Hawks trailed through most of the game as they had difficulty shoot ing against Connecticut's zone until the last quarter. St. Joseph's, in all, made 29 of 81 shots from scrim mage, uonneccicut connected on 35 of 97. Besides 6-foot-5 Quimby, the Nation's fourth-ranked re-bounder last year, dominated the boards with 31 grabs. .Six-foot-three Jack Heller was St. Joseph's top rebounder. HAWKS RALLY After Lynch and Frank Bren-nan scored field goals to give St. Joseph's a 4-0 lead, the Hawks fell behind, 5-4, on Quimby's field goal after 2:25. The Hawks didn't regain the lead until the last quarter. However, they kept fighting and always were within "hailing" distance. They trailed 19-15 at the end of the first quarter, 43-37 at the half and 60-54 going into the last period. At this point Lynch started to hit. He led a surge that gradually reduced Connecticut's lead. Finally, the Hawks edged in front with six minutes left as Cy Crawford stole the ball and passed to Heller for a layup. That narrowed Connecticut's lead to 68-67. Then Breslin's layup gave St. Joseph's the lead for the first time since the game's third minute, 69-68. With Heller and 5 foot-11 'Jim Pur cell momentarily controlling the backboards, Lynch got loose for a layup making St. Joseph's lead 71-68. Worthy Pater- son, Connecticut's captain who contributed 10 points, hit with a long set shot to pare St. Joseph's lead to 71-70. Lynch scored underneath, but Continued on Page 6, Column 8 48 for Dcvo In 98-88 Tilt MIAMI, Fla,, Dec. 19 AP). Rio Grande's Bevo Francis started out slowly but found the range In the last quarter and led his little Ohio college team to a 98-88 basketball victory over Miami tonight. The six-nine sophomore center whipped in 21 points in the final quarter to bring his total for the evening to 48, slightly better than the 47.4 points he had averaged in five games against four-year colleges this season. Francis had difficulty scoring in the first half, connecting on only seven of 17 field goal attempts. In the second half, he made good 13 of 28. Almost half of the famed Francis points came in the free-scoring last quarter when each team pumped in 32 points. Manhattan Five Bows to Texas; NYU Beaten BOSTON, Dec. 19 (AP). The Syracuse Nationals took over sec ond place from Boston in National Basketball Association's Eastern Division today with a 90-83 victory over the Celtics in the TV game of the week at Boston Garden. Boston took a 23-18 lead in the first period but that edge was trimmed to one point, 36-35, at the half. Billy Gabor sparked the Nats in the third period as they! pulled into a 66-59 advantage. SCHAYES TOPS WITH 19 Syracuse held off a furious Boston drive in the fourth quarter and kept the lead throughout the final hectic five minutes of the game. Dolph Schayes of the Nats threw in nine of 10 foul shots, many of them in the waning minutes, to lead the scorers with 19 points. Teammate Paul Seymour tallied 18 as did Boston's Ed Macauley and Bill Sharman. Through a mixup at the scorer's table, where the electric scoreboards are controlled, the final score went out to TV viewers as 89-83. A check of the tally added one point to the Syracuse score. inois Five Beats DePaul CHAMPAIGN, 111., Dec. 19 (AP). Undefeated Illinois handed De-Paul its first loss of the basket ball season tonight, swamping the Blue Demons with a first-half de luge that led to a 79-65 victory. NEW YORK, Dec. 19 (UP).

Bob Schaf er, 10th among the major college scorers, paced the Main Liners with 24 points. He showed an accurate flicking jump shot, and sank 10 of 13 from the foul line, shooting from the left end of th line. Capt. Jimmy Young, who hails from Philadelphia, was the Griffins' top man with 14. Gerry Large had 11 and Frank Corcoran, another Philadelphia resident, had 10. STRONG DEFENSE The second game was cut on a different pattern than the first, with Villanova showing a strong defense and an attack that consisted of a weave until the shot presented itself, with the front court men in proper rebounding position. Alex Severance, the Villanova j coach, used his starting five for the entire first half. This strategy was upset when Schafer acquired college basketball doubleheader at Madison Square Garden. " Palazzi, 6-4, tallied 17 points to keep Holy Cross in the running in the first half and then teamed with sub Joe Liebler to lead the Crusaders second-half drive. Palazzi also tallied 17 in the second half, while Liebler, using a one-hand push shot, scored 13 as Holy Cross rolled to its fifth con secutive victory. Boris Nachamkin, NYU's 6-6 center, scored 24 points as the Violets suffered their first loss after three straight triumphs. With only Palazzi able to hit consistently, underdog NYU overcame an early deficit and led, 33-32, at half time. The crusaders, however, built a 57-46 margin by the end of the third period. NYU never was able to move closer than five points thereafter. Texas' Longhorns survived a discontinued on Page 6, Column T Fordham Wins, Beats Freeze NEW YORK, Dec. 19 (AP). Breaking out with 23 points in the fourth quarter, Fordham romped to a 51-24 victory over Columbia tonight on the winners' court. This enables the Rams to enter the Sugar Bowl Invitational Tournament Dec. 29 unbeaten in six games. Columbia, intent on holding Fordham, froze the ball during much of the first three periods. Going Into the fourth quarter, the Rams led only 28-21. But with Big Ed Conlin and Ed Parchinski doing most of the damage, Fordham finally cracked through the stubborn Columbia defense, as the Lions realized their tactics weren't paying off. his fourth personal foul, 20 seconds after the third quarter got under way. Villanova led by 35-31 at half- time, after being held to 14-all for the first quarter. Larry Tierney put two long jump shots back to back as the visitors pulled away to a 49-39 lead in the next 10 minutes. while their defense limited Cani sius to one field goal over this span. a twisting jumpy by Jerry Stockman, y - GRIFFINS TALLY Then the Griffins, trailing 59-48, entering the final three minutes, staged a brisk rally that threat ened to upset the poised Philadel-phians, Corcoran clicking on two jumps, and Young counting two free throws. Joe Servon retaliated with a Villanova one-pointer, but Eddie Brown netted two, 47 seconds before the finish. Then time ran out on the Griffs, Jack Devine and Adams trading free throws. Just before the gun, Devine took the ball off the Canisius board and flung it back over his head. It sailed into the clock high over mid-court and stayed there. Canisius, making one more basket than the invaders, had a 27.0 average, with 20 for 74. Villanova, shooting 31.1, netted 19 of 61 attempts.
