HUGE CROWD SEES ALL-STAR GAME AT PARK Thursday, August 24, 1944 15 Berry, Trout Take Two Best in Three, Tag Match Event By ORVILI One of tho contestants appearing for the main event last night at Strollch Stadium was our old friend, who apparently has seen better flays, none other than Yukon Jake who lias been in Alaska for the past three years, and who claims that the northern white wing grasshoppers of Alaska were responsible for his robe being all chewed up. Jake claims that a man cnn toss his hat on the ground and that before he can pick it up, the grasshoppers will car the hat, sweatband and all. The main event was particularly rough last night ;:s Yukon Jake was paired with Danny McShain against \Vild Red Berry and Dick Trout. Danny and Trout entered the ring for the start and before very long Danny had Trout in the corn, where Yukon Jake would hold Trout by the arms and Danny would punch him on the chin. As the result of these tactics the first fall went to the team of McShain and Jake in 4:43. Berry and Trout saw the advantage of this maneuver and applied the same tactics on Yukon Jake to take the second fall in 2:03. The third fall went to tile team of Berry and Trout in 6:30 winning with a body press. The seml-windup, a two out of three falls bout, with a 45-minute time limit was between George Wagner and Master Sergeant George ,E COHl RX Craig who is on active service with the army engineers and who is on furlough at this time. Craig is athletic instructor for the army and is stationed on the east coast. Georgeous George Wagner took tin; first fall in 27 minutes with a back breaker after having a hard time with the sergeant. Craig took the second fall in 4:1 S winning this fall with a reverse flying head lock. The time limit was up shortly after this fall and Referee Jack Allen oalled this bout a drew which was well received by the fans. The preliminary event between Mike Nazarian and l^ee Grahle was a two out of three falls match with a 45-mInute time limit. The fans became incensed at the referee before the bout was over and began yelling, so the announcer had a hard time in making his announcements. Nazarian took the first fall in 22:37 with a hammerlock. OraMe took the second fall in 3:19 with a series of flying tackles and a body press. The third fall went to Nazarian in 1:04 with a half crab.

Its bound-edge brim and narrow band 'are obviously smart —but you'll agree, after you wear the Dallas a while, that its most important feature is the way it holds its shape and refuses to "wrinkle up." That's because the Dallas, made of Pliafclt by Mai- lory's exclusive new process, is surprisingly soft, yet resilient as well —and this resilience will keep your Dallas looking handsome and fresh for a long time to come. Available in new Mallory fall colors. $750 OTHER MALLORYS AT $6.50—SEE WINDOW MEN'S SHOP MALLORY HATS ARE UNION MADE Louise Snow Will Play Conni^Clifton FINALS MAY BE PLAYED SATURDAY AS LOCAL NET ARTIST MEETS TEST Maintaining her record of excellent tennis, Louise Snow yesterday defeated her friend, Sylvia Kakor of Santa Monica 6-1, 7-. r >, in the quarter-finals of tho twenty-sixth annual girl's national tennis tournament. Top seeded Shirley Fry. Akron, advanced into the penultimate bracket by defeating Joanne Dunn of Ues Moines (>••). 0-0, while Jean Doyle. San Diego moved up at the expense of Barbara Scofield. These victors meet today In another test that will eliminate one of the other .-is the supremo test looms perhaps Saturday when a crown will'be won by tho best player. Miss Snow is pitted against Connie Clifton in her half of the semifinals. Clifton won yesterday over Noreen llanoy of Greenwich. Conn., with the score of K-", 2-0, li-2. Louise will play Clifton and if she wins this victory she will be teamed against the remaining artist after the eliminations of today. The large number of Rnkersfield people who have so intently followed Louise's conquest have been grati- field by her unique performances and are on their toes as their sports heroine comes down tho home stretch, and whether she takes the last games or not, our hats will go up in the native air where a girl grew up to do ns a real honor. Coast Bowl Tourney at Long Beach Sept. 1 It is expected that bowlers from California, Utah, Arizona, Oregon and Nevada will vie for the west coast's rich bowling purse when a $5000 tournament opens at Long Beach September 1, Manager Ora Forman announced today. The contest will run through September 4. While no Bakersfield bowlers have entered the contest as of today, local experts are talking of the possibility that this city may be represented along with Oakland, San Krancsico and San Diego with a IM-man team. DROP ,11-1 AMERICAN LEAGUE IS IDLE YESTERDAY, TODAY lly JACK HANI) AssnrMleil ITpys Sp'U-Is \Vrilrr It's no disyraee to lose to the St. Lmiis Cardinals this year, but the CbieaKo Cubs threaten to malie a life's work out of the habit. Alter bowini; 11 times in a row when they were lowly eellarites. the Bruins tangled with the I tod Birds last nipht for the first time since they attained their lofty but unsteady perch in the first division. The result was the same. Twelve straight defeats have boon Inflicted upon the Chicago team by their St. I.ouis sparring partners, who have shown no si^ns of stopping. New Itrconl Never in the history of the major leagues has one team swept an entire season series from a rival. The New York Yankees of IHL'7 (•amo the closest when they slatiuh- tered the St. Ijouis Browns 21 times before bowing, ti-L'. on September 11 in their last meeting ot the year. That was the Yankee team of the Until era that uncovered AVilrev Moore, one of the game's great relief artists. In 1!)37 Pittsburgh trampled Cincinnati by a -1-1 margin in total games, and earlier, in 1SIOO, the Chicago Cubs themselves slaughtered Boston in similar fashion. Charley Grimm's Cubs have 10 more chances to keep their names out of the record books as the only club to go through an entire season without beating all of their rivals at least once. The Cooper boys* teamed up on Chicago last night, Morton coasting to his eighteenth win, 11-1, and Walked driving in three runs with three singles and his ninth homo run. It was tho fifth straight for Mort hut oddly enough his first win over the Cubs. St. Louis hit a new season high with a winning percentage of .750 by their latest success. Winning three out of every four games in their first 116 starts, Hilly Southworth's boys are hearing down on the Cubs' fabulous llti-win record of IflOC when they also set the modern high pace of .763. To beat that mark, the Red Birds must sweep 30 of their IIS remaining contests. That would mean a .789 level from here in.

The two teams pounded out 29 hits in the opener, eight of them home runs, including three in one inning by the Stars. The Angels were trailing, 3-7, in the third inning when they combined four lilts, two errors, a wild pitch and four passes for 10 runs.

Jodie Phipps being credited with the win and Charley Root the loss. Don Osborne pitched a two-hit shut-out in the second game. The Angels bunched five hits for three By Associated Press runs in the sixth to sew up the contest. Veteran Hurler Tom Seats finally broke inlo the 21-g-arne win column with a 9-to-4 victory over Oakland. Seats had failed three times previ ously to bettec his L'0-ganiG mark, made last season. He was in trouble only once and managed to stem a three-run rally by the Acorns in the sixth inning. Seattle's Hal Ttirpln beat San Diego's Don Hanski, 2 to 1, as both hurled seven-hit games. The winning tally was unearned. Stellar fielding helped Turpin out of tight spots in the eighth and ninth innings. Portland's Beavers won from Sacramento, 4 to 1.

U'hilo the score does not sn indicate, it was a brilliantly played baseball game, with the visitors fielding an excellently coached and alert nine. Bakersfiold. fielding perhaps two-thirds of its very best ball players, showed more bustle than usual and acquitted itself finite well. Lack of traveling facilities prevented Demaree. rubber-armed pitcher of Liakorsfield Cubs, from participating in the game. He lives and works in Shafter and could not arrange transportation to the game. That is not meant as an apology or as an excuse. It's merely an explanation to those fans who may have wondered why Demaree did not pitch. The best team won. Tt was—as this writer predicted—a bang-up ball game. The score was Roma Wine 5, Bakersfield All-Stars 1. Oyloe and Gregory pitched for Bakersfield. while Grimstoad and Lombard i toiled for the visitors.
