SUNDAY MORNING THE SHREVEPORT TIMES JANUARY 20. 1929 13 NEW WRESTLING f -Y- - I,, Y , SBWfSHBPW VHB BBSBBSBBI Heavyweight Grapplers Promise Plenty of Action On Weekly Wrestling Bill In Coliseum 1 ' 1 l ' S . w,.

CARTER TF WORDS CAN BE turned into results grappling patrons of trie Coliseum will be furnished with plenty of thrills Monday night when Promoter Julius Sigcl offers his regular weekly grappling program in the Coliseum, Fair Grounds. John hrecberjj, Stanley Stasiak, Puck Olson and Jack Washburn who will appear on tin-card are all promising lively times for their respective opponents and inform the promoter that they are in the pink of condition to give their best efforts. All have appeared here before and bae passed the "acid test" of the patrons. btanley BtaslaK. one or the blggcbt'y men engager! In the catch-as-cat h can aport, weighing 245 pounds and I standing six feet five Inches tall saye he Is In better condi tion now than any time In the past year and will be ready to carry the battle to Preebcrg from the tap ol the gong Stasiak has high hopes ot winning his way to a battle with Gus Sonnenberg, the new mat champion, and will soon start a campaign that he eipects will force the crown bearer to meet him. "I can get plenty of backing against Sonnenberg," is what Stasia It Bays" The same folks who were ready to support me In a contest with Ed Lewis will stand back of me against the new champion. I am In fine shape for Freeberg and do not propoee to allow htm to upset my plana Monday night. Freeberg Is looking at his grapplina career through rose colored glasses and haa the same Idea Stasiak enjoys about getting a bout with Sonneri-berg. In the past year Freeberg lias staged a remarkable comeback. All of his contests have not been victories but he has won the maority and In defeat has made a splendid stand. His recent bout here against, the giant Stasiak was one of the best of the season. He weighs IXt pounds. Is very strong and knows every hold In the game. He Is an expert In applying torture holds and counts upon his famous arm-locks to bring him victory Monday night. The return of Jack Washburn will attract quite a few to the Coliseum Monday night but In the belief of many the handsome Chicago matman has a big task before him In taking on Buck Olson. Last week Olson tackled Stasiak and for about 60 minutes he gave Stasiak a great tussle. He surrendered one fall when caught In a split and lost the second fail when he tried to match strength with the giant Pole. Olson, however. I showed enough class to cause the fans to predict that Washburn Is due for a busy evening. "This heavyweight grappling card Is the equal of any being offered anv-where In thlB section," Is what Promoter Slgel says. "It's a program any city would appreciate." The largest crowd of the winter season was In attendance at last week's show. There was a considerable Increase In the number of women patrons at the contests. The bouts were pleasing and added many new patrons to the sport. PopuUr prices will prevail for Monday's bouts. o Pioneer Sport Figure Dies in Washington Washington, Jan. 19 (ypr Michael D. Scanlon, pioneer sport figure, whose association with baseball began in 1886, la dead here at the age of 81. In 1878, while In charge of the Washington Nationals, he bought Connie Mack, now manager of the Philadelphia Athletics and three other players from the Hartford club for 600. f. -n- vi iff JACK WASHBURN This big Chicseon meets Buck Olson in one of two bouts Monday night in the Coliseum, fair Grounds.

He su"ceeds J. V. Stuckey Grovcr finch was elected secretary. Mrs. T. Stlnchcomb was named vice-president and will be In charge of all women's activities. She announced that the Women's East Texas Golf tournament will be held In Longvlcw the first week In March. A committee of men was chosen to help the women arrange for the tourney. This is to reciprocate the work by the women In connection with the East Texas Golf association tournament here last year. It is planned to widen the fairways at the club during the year. o TEXAS AtitilKS KROSII WIN College Station, Texas. Jan. 19 l.V) By force of numbers the Texas Aggies freshmen basketball team overpowered the Navasota high school quin tet, 54 to 19. here today. Swanfelt Five Crowding Ideal in Y Cage Race A check of the total scores of the teams In the two divisions of the Y. M. C. A. Basket Ball league show that scoring ability of the teams, although helping out a great deal, has very little to do with the club's standing In the flag race. Ideal Laundry quintet. leaders of the first division of the Commercial league, 1ms In three games scored but 64 points. Plggly Wljrgly team that Is In the cellar position of the first division has scored a total of 51 points placing them only 11 points behind the league leaders. In the second division Horse Shoe Feeds leads She division In standing as well as scoring. A total of 130 points has been made by the team in four games. Theta Kappa Nus, in the same division, and In a deadlock with the Nehl team for the third po sltlon berth, has scored but 40 points while the Nehl team has scored 69 Both the Dixie Oil and Kldd Russ holders of fifth nd sixth places, re spectlvely, in the league's standing, have each scored 44 points, placing them four point ahead of the T. K N. crew In scoring. To Swanfelt Roes the honor of scor ing the greatest number of pointy In four games. This team, although In the second place position, has scored 112 points, giving trtem a 48-polnt lead over the league-leading Ideal team This lead will of course be greatly decrea-sed when the Ideal plays Its fourth contest next week The end of the second week of play In the two leagues finds the teams settling down to real hard work. Swanfelt. although getting away to a bad start at the opening of the season, has In the past few ;onies displayed championship ability and the Ideal Laundry team will have to step fast to keep ahead. - In the second division the Horse Shoe Feds team, by a 33 to 31 victory over Oilllam, obtained the first place position In the second division. Gilliam Is the only team In the league that has given the Horse Shoe Feeds any real trouble. They are scheduled to meet two more "times before the of the season and should they continue to defeat their rivals until they meet again then cage fans of the city will be treated to a good basket bail conte&t.

An old saying used to be: "Three times and out." With Morris it has been: "Three times and In." And howl For eight years. Big Ed had been trying to make the major leagues In fact, back In 1920 when he signed with Bradcnton, Fla., for $135 a month, he passed up 250 he was making pitching semi-pro ball Just for the chance to start in organized baseball and reach the top. Eight long years. Seven of those years were spent In pitching for three Southern League clubs. He never had a very pretentious record but three major league scouts who looked htm over thought him worth while. The Chicago Cubs tried him out in 1922 snd sent him back after working him 12 Innings. "Too wild," they said. Cincinnati tried him In 1925 and chased him back. Ed had a sore arm. There Is no denying the fact that Morris was THE sensation among the first year men of the American League for 1928 and his work was all the more surprising when you figure out his 1927 record with Mobile. With the latter he won 15 and lost 17, walked 131 batters, hit 14 and had 6 wild pitches. Nothing to enthuse over. Nothing to Indicate that the holder of such a record would win 19 and lose but 15 games for Boston, a tail-ender In the majors, that he would allow less than one hit to an Inning and walk only 76 batters In 257 Innings, that he would master every other club In the league. And. Manager Bill Carrigan picked no soft spots for Big Ed. To the contrary, Ed had to battle with the beet pitchers the opposition could send him. Being the Red Sox Ace, he had to pay the penalty. But It Is some honor to become the Ace of a major league pitching staff the first year and tn so doing. Ed, at the age of 29, has followed the example of Dazzy Vance who did not make the grade In the big show until he was 29 and had oerformed 10 seasons in the minor leagues. Control, now one of Morris' long suits, was his greatest fault In 1927. "But," says Ed. "there was a mighty good reason and I did not discover It until the season was almost over. You see. I am built like a wrestler on the right side. My right shoulder Is abnormally large. With the season only a week to go, I asked Umpire BUI Brennan if I could not cut a piece out of my shirt so as to give my arm more play. He told me to go ahead and do so and what a difference It made with my pitching. I could put the ball Just where I wanted to. This year, I had a shirt built to fit me. "Then." he continued, "you must remember I am working for a man who has shown me how to Improve my curve ball, develop my control and use what I have. Mr. Carrignn does not sign me on every pitched ball but he does expect me to remember what he has told me between Innings." Morris takes -reat pride In the fact that Babe Ruth was not able to call him "Cousin" during the 1928 campaign. In fact, he felt pretty cocky niier nis iirst game against tne Yankees last spring, a game In which he replaced Simmons with two on, no one out and Koenlg, Ruth and Gehrig coming up. Big Ed causd Koenig to force Shealy at third. He worked carefully on Ruth and Babe forced Combs. Then he really bore down and stmek out Gehrig. Not only did Morris prevent Ruth from hitting him for a homer but he mystified the entire Yankee team to the same extent, the only four-sackers made off him being by Cls-sell of the White Sox, Brannon of St. Louis, and Miller of the Athletes. "Joe Sewell," says Morris, "Is the toughest man In the league for me to pitch to. You simply have got to give him good balls. The whole Cleveland team was my Jinx. I beat the Indians once but they took three from me and knocked me off the rubber twice." Before Uncle Sam broke Into the great war, Morris, a native of Brew-ton, Ala., enlisted In the U. S. Marines end was stationed at Pensa-cola. At first, he played third base or the outfield for the Marines, then shifted to first base and finally to pitching. When his term was up, he was invited to pitch for Palmer College, a little educational Institution in north Florida. Along came a professor one day and asked : "How does It happen, Mr. Morris, that I do not see you In any of my classes?" "I came to pitch, not to attend classes," replied Morris, I did not understand we had a course In baseball," continued the instructor. "We will have to take your case under consideration." And, the next day, Morris found himself on his way back to Brewton. But, It was not long before the offer came from Bradenton, an offer Inspired by Lance Richbourg. coach at University of Florida, against whose team Ed had pitched. "I have been a long time reaching the big show," says Ed. in reviewing his career, "but, now that I- am up and have shown I can vln for a tail end team I am going to do my best next season to prove I am not a false alarm. And, as long as I have the confidence, I guess I'll come through." WINNFIKI.D. Wlnnfleld, Jan. 19 (Special).

The Peason high school basket ball team defeated the Many high school. 22 to 9. The game was very fast, end the score was close until the last quarter. During the Inst quarter the Peason boys made many beautiful goals and their pass work was very good. E. Reid was high point player for Peason, with six field goals and two fouls. The Peason team would like to arrange games with any team ;n tne northern part of the state. Any one wishing to arrange a game with Peason, please write to Coach Carlton OAK GROVE. Oak Grove, Jan. 19 (Special). The Oak Grove High school won one of the most thrilling basket ball games ever seen on tne local court Friday night, beating Jamestown, 10 to 13. Jamestown was leading at tne naif, 10 to 6, but long distance shots in the last few minutes of play gave the locals victory. Big Jack Torrance and Odelle Roberts were easy stars of Oak Grove. White, lanky center, was star of the Jamestown team. The game was played in the new pavilion, and was witnessed by the largest crowd ever seen here at a basket ball game. LONGVIEW. Longview, Texas. Jan. 19. Long-view and Mlneola divided honors in two basketball games here Friday night. Longvlew girls defeated the visitors. 28 to 22. and Mlneola boys triumphed over the Loboes, 30 to 20. The Mlneola boys' quintet easily outclassed the Loboes In every department of the game. Their offensive was exceptionally good and their defensive was sufficient to keep the Longvlewltes almost helpless during the last half, Beechnut oil can be used for oap or for lighting, but the cake is poisonious to cattle.

The owners spoke to the foremen, anel the foremen spoke to the workers, with the result that the workers joined in a parade with banners, against the Sunday sports bill. There had been a big battle of handbills. First, the town was plastered with signs reading "On the Sunday Sports Referendum, Vote Yes Yes Yes." The antis countered with a wave of signs reading "On the Sunday Sports Referendum, Vote No No No." The yes men tore down the no signs, and vice versa. The waste of wood-pulp paper was enormous. There came the day of the big anti-Sunday sports parade. As it passed through an enemy stronghold, the paraders were showered with ripe vegetables and verbal abuse. Suddenly out of a side street there came a figure on horseback, a tattered rider on a decrepit horse. The rider wore whiskers, a brown derby, a "Vote Yes" banner for a costume, and carried a lighted torch in one hand. Taking a position about half a block ahead of the parade, the outlandish jockey prepared the town inhabitants for the paraders in his wake by stentorian cries: "To arms! To arms! The British are coming!" Those staid New Englandcrs enjoy a bit of quiet fun once in a while. t'ti iuiiiik UJUi oiai.iik; ill idc ld.c. lun 111 midm. the backers of the scheduled match are trying to stir up a bally-hoo for a $5lXl.(K)0 and it does not take the occult powers of Clair f.

Miami could not turn out $500,000 to a real heavyweight championship match and it must be remembered that neither Stribling or Sharkey wears the crown. We doubt whether the late Mr. Rickard could have drummed up a $500,000 gate in Miami and that's just the amount of money it's going to take to pay individuals for the Sharkey-Stribling affair. The south is very proud of VV. h. "Young" Stribling, its leading representative in the heavyweight boxing tournament, but it is doubtful whether the majority of sport fans ot Dixie think enough of the Georgia Peach to travel through several states to see him in action. Surely Florida alone cannot produce the $500,000 gate and there won't be any mad rush of ring worms from the north to see the mill. Stribling has taken some of the edge off the battle by his barn storming in tank towns. There arc few sections in the south that have not seen Stribling in action and usually when the fans see htm once that is enough. Miami is putting on the big bout as a publicity stunt and that's about all anyone outside of the boxers will get out of it. Marty Burke, New Orleans heavyweight, picks Stribling as the next champion. He has a lot of respect for the Georgia Peach. Our vote goes to Stribling. Casting out four-fifths of his ring record we still believe he is the best of a bad lot and capable of defeating all comers. Yc believe that if he was matched with Jack Dempsey our vote would still be in favor of Stribling. HERE YOU ARE. GIRLS. JM. NORTH, who signs himself as manager of the Spark- man Sparklers, girls' basket ball team, of Sparkman, Ark. writes in that his squad of goal shooters ii just craving for worthwhile competition and would like to know if there is any team in this city that would care for action. Mr. North says that his team can get plenty of games but not the right kind of opposition. He's looking for a real battle. That should be interesting news to a few of our local teams of the city league, also to Grovcr C. Thames, who sponsors the cage tournament in the Coliseum. The letter from the Sparkman high school follows: Sparkman, Ark., Jan. 16, 1929. Sports Editor, The Shreveport Times, Shreveport, La. Dear sir: Our girls' basket ball team appears to be unable to secure any real opposition in the state of Arkansas and if not too much trouble, would be very glad if you would give us the name of the most outstanding high school girls' team in northern or northwestern Louisiana. We would also be interested in arranging a game with the best girls' team in the Shreveport territory either high school, college or independent. Our team last year played in the National A. A. U. tournament in Wichita, Kansas, and was unfortunate in being forced to meet the Tresevent-Cochran team of Dallas, Texas, in our second game. They defeated us, 27-24. and it developed later that we were the only team that gave Dallas any opposition in the entire tournament. Incidentally that was the only game the Sparkman team has lost in its three years of playing. We assure you that any help you can give us in arranging some games with teams in your territory will be appreciated, we remain. Yours very truly. SPARKMAN SPARKLERS, J, R. North, Manager. NO MORE TWO-BASE BUNTS. 'pHE TWO-BASE bunt for Texas leaguers at Beaumont is going to be wiped out this season with the opening of a new home for the Exporters. In the past few years officials of the Exporters made an effort to corral as many right field hitters as possible doe to the short fence back of the first base station at Magnolia park, and the two-base bunt became popular there. Almost any pop fly to right field went out of the park and was good for two sacks, the distance from home plate to the outer-regions being only 180 feet. Jay Kirke, who pastimed with the Shreveport Sports a few years ago, usually was in his glory in visiting Beaumont. This year the Exporters will have a brand-new park and a regular playing field and Rube Stuart, the owner, seems to be well on the way to putting a good ball team in the field. He is constructing a plant that represents a $50,000 investment and has spent oodles of coin also in getting players. Clyde Robertson, who will manage the team for Strart, is taking on tried performers in this loop. Since last fall he has bought Denny Burns from Fort Worth, Tink Riviere from San Antonio, and Tom Estell from Wichita Falls. These three hurl-ers have been around for some time. In addition the Exporters have obtained Outfielder Lyman Lamb from Wichita Falls and Pitcher Walter Newman from San Antonio. Their prize jewel, though, seems to be in Outfielder Paul Easterling from Detroit. Other additions to the Exporters are: Infielder Chapman from San Antonio. Christian, a pitcher from Omaha, and Schemanske, a liurler from Indianapolis. Odom, an infielder from St. Paul, and Akers, an infielder from the Western league. The Exporters have many others. The grand stand in the Exporters' new park will seat 7,000 while the bleachers will care for 1,000. Beaumont is planning a big time in 1929 and look forward to deal misery to quite few. Fishing in Cane River Will Close for Long Period Csmptl. Jan. 18 (Special). Fishing tn Cane river lake will be forbidden from February 1 to May 14, It is n-nounced by P. A.

Y., Jan. 19 (U) The Army narrowly missed a clean sweep In Its athletic program heer today. scoring victories in five sports and losing the decision in one. The Cadet deefated Lehigh, 2B-J3. on the basketball court, tn a close, fast game. Ihlgh threatened con st natly, but Army managed to emerge on top. The Army Tankers won a 47-17 victory over Amherst In the West Point pool, piling up first and seconds for the w ldc margin of victory. The boxlnij and wrestling teams added victories, the grapplers defeating Springfield, 18-11, while the boxers were beating New Hampshire, 4-3 The Army polo squad defeated Squadron "A" 9-3. On the only reverse of the day Bates won a 5-0 hockey victory from the Cadets 0 SHOE PITCHING TOURNEY RULES SONNENBERG WILL BRING BIG GATE RECEIPTS TO MAT GAME, SAYS SPORT CRITIC By FRANK GETTY, United Press Sports Editor. Wrestling is fast coming to the front as a money-making sport There arc those who have maintained that wrestling could nerer hope to enter the class of "Million Dollar Gates'" because there was not enough action or color to it, that the average sports fan wanted his entertainment served with a wallop ar.d a ring. But now it seems that all the wrestling game really needed wis an individuality to put it over. Fighting has its Dempsey; football has its Granger; baseball has its Ruth; and now, wrestling has its f Sonnenberg. "Dynamite Gus Sonnenberg, the BASKET BALL SHOTS By TED VOSBCROH wltrl PrxM Pport W rit.) The basket ball tendency In football In this era of the open game and much passing Is Indicated strikingly by the great number of football ends whose names are appearing In basket ball lineups all over the country. The number of men who double In football and basket ball Is large and among the grid stars on the court the ends are overwhelmingly predominant. Looking over the rosters of a few teams, such names stand out as Tom Churchill of Oklahoma. Jerry Neme-cek of New York university, Fesler of Ohio State, Truskowskl of Michigan, Swarthout of Dartmouth and Polltls of Fordham. Among the many that might be added are Joey Schaaf of Penn, high scorer of the Eastern Intercollegiate Basket Ball league, who was drafted for service on the eleven last fall. While all of those mentioned above are football wlngmen of some note, a survey of the same teams nets a much smaller list of men who gained football fame tn other positions. These Include Miles, fullback, and Wlttmer, halfback, both of Princeton; Paul Scull, Penn's great triple threat captain who Is playing his first college basket ball this year as a guard: and Remey Tys of Columbia. The case of Tys. Incidentally, la exceptional, as It Is unusual for a man heavy enough to play In the center of a major college line to be fast and clever enough to make a good basket ball played. Tys, a sophomore, has defied this coblna-tlon of facts by playing as good a game as a guard on the court as he did as a tackle on the gridiron. Besides forming a fine defensive barrier he managed to score In all of Columbia's first few games. (Continued From Preceding Tagr.) complamwt of.

From the evidence at hand It would appear that the football ends make better basket ball fotwards and centers than guards. They often run to height, prize examples being Polltls, Fesler and Churchill. Before leaving the subject It might be mentioned that two of the ereatest football ends of recent colleee vears were likewise two of the finest basket ball players their insti tutions ever turned out. one was Vie Hanson, all-American end at Sy racuse. and the other was Benny Ocwterbaan, who enjoyed a similar distinction at Michigan.

His last bout with Strsngler Lewis at Boston, on January 4, drew the record gats of 172,000. He la now champion and his next match should gross a gate of at least 1300,000. If wrestling fans want action, Sonnenberg can give It to them In largs and copious doses. What ha lacks la beet he makes up In cyclonic tempo. If his technique Is not as finished as those who have massaged the mat for years, his dizzy speed and head work puts him In a class entirely by himself. And for those who pooh, may It be said, that In his short, but speedy career, Gus has mingled tn some 70 bouts, and never yet bas his youthful shoulders kissed the mat. "Dynamite" Ous is going to bt I popular idol with the sport fans the boys who furnish the shekels at the turnstile, because of his consummate mat-generalship. He haa shown a remarkable ability to outsmart some of the wiliest old veteran In the game time and time again. Neither the fans nor his opponents ever know what he is going to pull next. Many a time when Gus seemed to b ail In, spent and tired, h suddenly came back with a rush and befora his surprised opponent knew Just what was happening, he found Gus' bullet head nestling in the pit of the stomach with force enough to fell a bull. As a matter of fact, one of Sonnen-berg's many aliases Is "The Bull of the Campus." His bull-like rushes and flying football tackles hare won him victory after victory. He literally wins his matches with his head. In the championship bout at Boston in which he snatched the title away from Strangler Lewis, Sonnenberg battered and butted his man Into a state of dazed Insensibility from which he didn't seem able to recover before the official finally disqualified him. In addition to a purse of $8,000 that bout gave Sonnenberg the much coveted diamond-studded championship belt, valued at 10,000. Gus has a hobby. It la professional football, and the winning of his recent bout gives him the much-desired grubstake whereby he will be able to develop that sport In Boston, 42 PLAYERS WILL BE AFTER JOBS ON LOCAL TEAM T.
