Joe Hiestand Breaks His Extra 75 Without Single Miss ( \mufitttet Preti Leaned Wire) •yANDAUA, Ohio, Ang. 28.—The • v "little fellows" had their Inning today at the Grand American trap- shoot In a 200-target, 16-yard race for class championships, but the "talk of the town" still centered around the Tuesday performances of Mrs. Lola Hall and Joe Hiestand In retaining their North American clay target titles. Winners In six classes, from the "dubs" to the experts, were decided today, as well as tho team race, In which five men from each stato battled for tho national laurels. Mrs. Hall, blue-eyed, 119-pound No. 1 citizen of tho 144 residents of Strasburg. Mo., provided most of tho fireworks In yesterday's show. She broke 196 out of 200 clays from tho Ifl-yard lino, the greatest mark ever mado In the battle for national feminine honors. Hlcstund, tho Hillsboro, Ohio, farmer boy, repeated his performance of a year ago to win tho men's championship. Just as In 19S«, he broke 199 of 200 to tlo with three others for the lead, and then beat them In the shoot-off. Goes Straight Through Halo C. Jones of East Alton, 111., tho "champion of champions," fin ished second with 74 of 75 as Hel- Btand went "straight" through tho 75 extra targets. West Beats East The western team of 10 defeated tho east by 33 targets yesterday, avenging a defeat suffered a year ago. Tho east broke 1895 of. tho 2000 targets, while tho west snared 1928. Old Gridder Will Try Out for Team (Afioctated Trent Leaeed Wire) BERKELEY, Aug. 20.—William Loano West, 20 years ago star right end on University of California's "wonder team," Is back at school do termlncd to play varsity football again. The 40-year-old athlete, who says ho Is Cherokee Indian and Irish, stands 0 feet plus and weighs 226. Ho wants a tackle position. West left tho university as a sophomore to go to war and In recent years ho toured the country lecturing on physical education. Ho registered from Savannah, Ga., as a Junior student. Coach L. B. "Stub" Allison said West has two years' eligibility. "I'll treat him like any oC tho kids," Allison said. "On my team tho beat man gets tho first string positions, West will be put In whore he stacks up." "1 may not make the varsity," said West, "but tho boy that beats me out will sure have to work." .PIPEFUL' JIM DAY CUCCESS of John Kovacovlch, ^ Kern county's record breaking outboard motor pilot, Is not without a parallel here, for, residing in tho county is another famous rootorboat pilot, Ralph Snoddy. While Kovacevlch has achieved success as a pilot of outboard motorboats, artlcularly Class F runabouts, Snoddy bag attained distinction as a pilot of racing hydroplanes. ' Incidentally a hydroplane Is not a flying boat nor is it a seaplane. The typo of hydroplanes raced by Snoddy was equipped with "steps," the under side of tho hull having BO mottling the appearance of a three- stop Inverted stairway. Under speed these craft "ride up" out of the water on the last step. Snoddy achieved International distinction, and that is no hot air, at Los Angeles, Palm Beach and Southampton, England, In motorboat races. Wins Duke's Trophy Rated among one of the greatest trophies won by'Snoddy was that donated by the Duko of York, a gold and bronze symbol of a racing motorboat. Snoddy set a world record for hydroplanes of the "151 class." His greatest fame came to him for his daring and successful manipulation of the wheels and throttles of "Miss Los Angeles" and "Miss Rioco" and "Spitfire." It was at the wheel of tho hydroplane Spitfire that ho won the Duke of York's trophy in England, making a clean sweep of the racing field at Southampton. Arvin Racer's Plans Returning to Kovacevich again, the Arvln racer has told me that he plans to enter tho national championship events at Oakland on September 13 and has purchased a new motor for his specially designed hull. We certainly wish him luck. Sea Going Town It seems odd that Bakersfield, certainly within the category of inland towns, should be the home of two famous motorboat pilots, yet they live here in the county. Living Inland Is no handicap tor Kovacevlch—he transports Ills racers all over the western sea- board In a trailer. He even brought his latest boat to the office to show to me. MEADOWS SAYS NATIONAL AIR RACES WILL BE WOW Cecil Meadows, superintendent of the airport here, calls attention to the national air races set for September 4 to 7 at the Los Angelos Municipal Airport, formerly Mines Field. Though events have been known to lag in their sequence at air races, the speed trials, once under way, furnish one of the most spectacular exhibitions of all- sport. As a stubby-winged bullet-bodied plane spills the atmosphere into a throbbing roar, rounds a pylon In u. vertical baiilc and whips back Into its racing traverse, the old spine transmits au electric thrill. Y TEAM IS CHECKED AFTER 18 STRAIGHT After winning 18 consecutive games, Including some away from home against valley giant killers, tho local Y. M. C. A. baseball squad has finally been checked In its phenomenal spurt. Ideco severed the succession of victories here Monday evening though the official scorer reported the losers were not barred from protesting tho outcome, Irrespective of this "angle" the IS-game succession of triumphs was a remarkable one and tho Y squad is to be congratulated on its brilliant play. Pistol Pointer Fishes Pistol Pointer O. G. Heckmann, assistant chief of police and active hero In making local officers competent pistol allots, has recently returned from a vacation at Klamath where he transferred his attention from the "rod" to a rod. Fishing was not so good, the officer reports. Though Klamath. is a famous fishing district, Heckmann was at the river at the wrong time. He has now put away his bamboo 'rod and lias hooked a steel "rod" to his Sam Browne belt—back on duty again. -PREVENT FIRES IIKUUAKEK FIGHT ! HAN FHANCISCO, Aug. 26. (U. P.)—Phil Brubaker, Dinuba heavyweight who retired temporarily because of hand Injuries and a defeat at tho hands of Jack Bharkcy, former heavyweight champion, will make a new bid for ring honors Sup- tember 11 when ho meets Ford Smith, Montana, at Dreamland auditorium. NAMED FOR JESSE OWENS DOS PALOS, Aug. 26. (U. P.)— Jesse Owens cried lustily today. Ho Is tho 1-day-old, 8-pound son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Owens, Dos Palos Negroes, who named him In honor of tho Olympic horo. Manfredo Obtains Draw in His Bout f UMtcA 1'rcgi Leased Wire) LOS ANGELES, Aug. 20.—Al Mnn- fredo, clever Fresno boxer, saved bis state welterweight'title from passing into tho bands of Able Miller of Los Angeles last night by staging a tenth round rally to earn a draw in their bout at Olympic Auditorium. The hard-punching Los Angeles Hebrew started fast and jolted Manfredo In tho first, but the Italian came back to take the next two rounds through outboxlng Miller. The fourth was even, as the two stood in the center of tho ring and slugged. Manfredo weighed 148 and Miller 143 pounds. Fish, from either fresh or salt water, Is said to be morn digestible than any other form of flesb.

Anglo then ed tho parado until the sixth when Shell got on tho dime and staged a short rally. Mayer was the hero of the spurt. Roberts and Millette had singled and Purtle walked to "111 the bases. With one out, Mayer smashed a long fly to center field.' Tho ball was caught by Ware who threw to second to double Purtlo with n perfect peg. However, the Shells scored a run after tho out." In the seventh, tho first Shell' man walked and the next two managed to load the bases by way of errors. AVlth bases loaded the next man on tho batting list struck out. Franklo Magren waked to scoro the tleing run. Peavy and Millette then hit to score the winning runs. Mll- letto took batting honors In this game when ho tallied two out of four.
