The principals for the scheduled ten-rounder will be Buddy Scott, Jacksonville, ring veteran who will be seeking his fifth knockout in three weeks, and Bou Sikes of Little Rock. The "championship" eliminations are being staged by American Legion fight promoters Les Call and Jimmy Watts. They hope to have the ultimate winner recognized officially by the National Boxing association as southern heavyweight champ. Two defeats will eliminate a fighter from contention in the series, which means Sikes Is on the ropes. He dropped a decision to Ragon Kinney, Clarksville, Ark, in the first of the elimination bouts two weeks ago. Mel Hein Joins Grid Yanks Coaching Staff NEW YORK.

Pittsburgh Gives Meyer MoreMoney, PITTSBURGH, Feb 12, (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates today tore up Manager Billy Meyer's old contract and gave him a new one for the next three years with a substantial but undisclosed salary increase. The owners of the National,- league club said It was a reward for his good work in bringing the next three years with a substan-' tial but undisclosed salary in-! crease. . The owners of the National j league club said it was a reward for his good work in bringing the Bucs from last place to fourth in his first year in the managerial i post and also an expression of , their confidence. Meyer was reported to be the first pilot in Pirate history to be ' given a three-year contract. Only a few previous managers had two-j year agreements. One of them, ; Billy Herman, resigned at the end ; of one year in 1947 and the Pi- rates paid him around 28,000 for i his unused 1948 services. Comina to the Bucs from the ' Kansas City Blues of the American association. Meyer brought a repu-. tation as a star-maker for the New York Yankees. He won the i solid support of the local fans and was named manager of the year ; last season by the Baseball writers association of America and several other groups. Tomorrow night. Meyer Is sched-! uled to be the guest of honor at the annual dinner of the Pittsburgh chapter of the baseball writers. Pirale owners John Gal- breath. Tom Johnson and General Manager Pvoy Hamey als will bei i present. ' Only Eight Sunday Tilts Slated Here The Tallahassee Pirates Sunday games in Centennial I jMonda league season. This is a reduction of almost 50 per cent in comparison with the 1948 campaign which saw the Bucs appear here In 15 Sabbath tilts. In previous years this city's Sunday dates have been swelled by the fact that several Georgia towns prohibited playing on the Sabbath. But the official league schedule for the coming season was drawn up under the assumption that the two remaining holdouts asrainst Sunday ball Moultrie and Thorn as villc will play games on that day this season. In the event either or both towns do not play Sunday games tha local club will probably arrange to trade playing dates with them. The Pirates are scheduled to p'ay one Sunday game in Thomas-ville and two in Moultrie. Wednesday Popular With the numerous Sunday games drastically reduced here, Wednesday night game3 take over lhe tP spot as the most prevalent playing date. The Bucs are slated to appear here 13 times on Wednesday nights. The proverbial "Blue Monday" will hold little joy for Pirat fans this season, for the Bucs are scheduled to appear here less frequently on that day than any other days. Only six Monday games are on tap. In addition to the Sunday, Monday and Wednesday games, the Longer Term Manager Bill Meyer R (warded for goed work :v i - are scheduled to play only eight Field during the 1949 Georgia- Pirates are slated to play here 12 Saturdays, 11 Tuesdays and 10 Thursdays and Fridays. All games, save Sunday tilts, are scheduled at night. The official '49 slate calls for the Pirates to open the season with a two-game series in Thomasville April 12 and 13. They also close the schedule in the Rose City with the final tilt on Friday, Sept2. During the past two years the Pirates have opened the season at home. The 1948 opener was officially set here, while the '47 opener was slated for Thomasville, but actually played here after rain had washed out the Rose City lid-lifter. Other opening dates around the league this season send Americus to Albany, Waycross to Valdosta and Moultrie to Cordele. The 1949 schedule aolieres closely to the two-game series which proved so popular last year. Save for one four-day road trip and one four-game home stand each month, the teams will follow a pattern of two games at home and two on the road throughout the campaign.
