IMunday Afternoon, March 8, 1937 THE DATLT DEMOCKAT, TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA Orange Bowl Sponsors Protest New Conference Ruling MIAMI BATTLE IS 'OUTLAWED' BY CONFERENCE Editors and Officials Say Ruling is Slap To Florida ATLANTA, W5) Spurred on by sharp protests from fellow Flori-dians. sponsors of Miami's Orange Bowl football game today sought reconsideration of the newly voted Southeastern conference ban on all "bowl" competition except the Rose and Sugar affairs. Florida sports editors and coaches charged discrimination and "politics" in action taken here Saturday recognizing the Pasadena and New Orleans games but forbidding members to compete in other post seasonal contests controlled by "third parties." Reaction was mixed in other conference sectors. "I am surprised at the action -and will write conference officials immediately and ask to have the matter reopened," said W Keith Phillips, chairman of the Orange Bowl committee. Slap at Florida "The conference made a direct slap at the Orange Bowl game and Florida resents, it," wrote Sam Eutz. sports editor of the Jacksonville Times-Union. Dinty Dennis, 6ports editorof the Miami Herald, foresaw possible r-repercussions for the conference, saying, "Many former Florida high school players are on conference rosters but such action as tliis can result in nothing short of a 'sit down' strike by Floridians against the Southeastern conference 'politicians'." Pete Norton of the Tampa Tribune found "all the earmarks of ward politics" in the step. Josh Cody, head of Florida's Gators said, "I am sorry they took that action.. It will be rather hard on Florida teams and Florida people may not understand why the conference discriminated against their state's bowl game." Outside Protest Support for the Resort Staters came from Bruce Dudley of the Louisville Courier Journal who called the move "obviously gross discrimination-of the rankest species" and sarcastically suggested the conference follow up by endorsing some particular brand of cigarette. The loops heads won commendation, however, from Ralph Mc-Gill, of the Atlanta Constitution, r-ho praised the action and called it "the first step toward the ultimate banning of all such promotional ventures." Ed Harris of the Knoxville Journal also favored the ruling and added "The Southeastern conference has led the way for other conferences to follow." Most Coaches Agree Mississippi and Mississippi State, roth conference members, represented the south in the last two Orange Bowl Games.

UP) The Cunninghams, San Romania, Lashs, Meadowses and all the other big-time stars who have filled the winter headlines with their indoor track performances have to play second-fiddle this week: the intercollegiates are coming to town. The annual Intercollegiate A A A A championship meet isn't the biggest of the season nor is it likely to produce many broken records, yet from the standpoint of keen competition it's about the most exciting meet of the year. There are 463 athletes entered from 26 colleges. Some of them were good enough to make the Olympic team last year; others who might not cut big figures in international competition, are listed among the five individual champions, one co-champion and 29 place winners from last year who will be back. A flock of speedy newcomers add spice and to top it off there's the team championship at stake. - - - Meanwhile the stars of the big cLcuit, who competed at Chicago last Saturday 8nd such performer- as Joe McCluskey, double winner in the mile and two-mile in the Maryland-Fifth Reg'ment neet, and Miklos Szabo, triumphant in the two-mile special at th- A A U junior championships ,t Provdence, mostly will remain idle. For those who want tune- i for the Knights of Columbu-mcret, final bigtime fixtures on St Patrick's night, thwe are the Ma- ? Leaf games at Toronto Friday and the Middle Atlantic meet at Hershey, Pa, Saturday. as a whole had little fault to find with the results of the Saturday meeting. Referring to the bowl, order. Dr Wilbur Smith, director of athletics at Tulane, whose team played in the first Sugar Bowl game three years ago, said, "Im delighted they did it." Ray Morrison, head coach at Vanderbilt, said he was "very much pleased with all the developments at the meeting." At Knoxville, Sports Editor Harris tempered his approval of the bowl verdict by criticising the conference action in forbidding individual schools to negotiate for football broadcasting contracts pending a report April 15 on proposal to sell the radio rights for the whole conference to a single sponsor.

The latest demonstration by the frail-appearing youngster from Kansas State Teachers College at Emporia, came Saturday night and was nothing less than a sur prising triumph over Cunningham, the old master, himself, in the Bankers' mile. He gave a capacity Chicago crowd of 8,000 its biggest foot racing thrill since Joie Ray's day. The time, 4 minutes, 21 seconds was far from spectacular, but it was excellent for the tour over a slow, new dirt track in the International amphitheater. The manner in which San Romani conquered his more famous fel-low-Kansan, demonstrated he should be ready for the boss job when Cunningham hangs up his shoes. After Blaine Rideout of the North Texas Teachers had set a crazy pace for nearly four laps, San Romani, Cunningham and slender Gene Venzke moved out in a body. A lap later San Romani started pouring it on, with Cunningham and Venzke still at his heels. Cunningham opened up at the start of the final lap and had moved up to the other Kansan's shoulder with a half lap to go. He got no farther for San Romani let out another peg. and finished two yards in front, with Venzke about five yards back of Cunning ham, and Rideout far in the ruck. Special gloves were used In fal conry. In ancient days, to guard the hand against the falcon's beak and claws. Several Shooters Enter Local Meet Squad May Organize For State Tourney Pine weather brought out a number of the shooters o? the city and quite a number of spectators to the first prize meet of the month at the Tallahassee gun club. In explanation of this prize it may be said that a silver prize will be given to the high score each month, four shoots to constitute a month or prize period. In order to compete, the shooter must shoot at least once each week. Handicaps will be arranged as in the past," E E Bush and Ellis Culpepper began training for the state shoot to be held in Daytona Beach on April 1, 2 and 3. There are indi cations that possibly a squad from Tallahassee may be in competition this year at this shoot, as the shooters will be classed according to their scoring and the "little fellow" will not be compelled to shoot against the "big shots' for the money but will have a share of his own to compete for. Scores for Sunday afternoon at skeet are: Ed Hill 20-22. E S Cul pepper 14-14-10, W A Perkins 15. Ivan Munre 18-16. Johnnie Jones 19, J L Hall 18, C B Cooke 10, E E Bush 15-19. It will be noted that Hill, Jones, Culpepper and Bush have broken into the 1937 Peg 8 club, Jones being the first. At 16 yard singles. Bush broke 21-22-24 while Culepper at his first try at these targets accounted for 17 which is a good score for a novice. Shoots will be held each Sunday afternoon until further notice. , TAMPA Jack Rothrock. veteran rookie getting his second try-out with the Cincinnati Reds, showed up in training camp today after a five-day motor trip from his Long Beach, Calif, home. ' Coach George Kelly was Injured yesterday when a hot line-drive .off the bat of Catcher Dee Moore 'hit his leg. Picard, Revolta Gain Close Win In Four-Ball Go Defending Champs Play Sarazen and Hines In Second Round MIAMI, VP) Henry Picard and bushy-haired Johnny Revolta, rulers of the International four-ball golf tournament for the last two years, went into the second round of the current event today hoping to re-enact their 1936 final victory over Gene Sarazen and Jimmy Hines. c The result this time may be dif ferent, for the - Picard-Revolta team was forced to come from behind yesterday to escape elimination and it's a different Sarazen they'll be meeting today. Off to a ragged start, Revolta and Picard were three down to Wild Bill Mehlhorn and Joe Turn' esa after nine holes but they ral lied to win on the 36th green, one up. Sarazen, deadly serious in his new campaign, was hitting his shots well as he and Hines downed Billy Burke and Ed Dud ley, 4 and 3. The prize shot of the opening round figured in the ignominious 6 and 5 defeat of Horton Smith and Paul Runyan tournament winners in 1933 and finalists the next two years. Husky Ed Oliver holed a 110-yard approach shot for an eagle two on the 31st green to assure victory for him and young Sam Snead. Today they go against another veteran combination, Willie Mac Farlane and Frank Walsh, who took out Tommy Armour and Ray Ilangrum, 3 and 2. Another spectacular stroke, a 30-foot chip shot into the cup by Willie Klein on the second extra hole, came in the nick of time to bring Klein and Johnny Farrell victory over Denny Shute and Ralph Guldahl in the day's marathon. NEW ORLEANS Sammy Hale, who after two seasons at third is being shifted to second base, dis pelled today any doubts about how he regarded the change. "I was tickled to death when I heard Steve O'Neill wanted me to play second," the Cleveland In dians inflelder said. "They hit 'em past your ear too fast at third."

X 1 Florida Racing -Season on Last Lap at Tropical Hialeah Park Concludes 46-Day Meet in Record Style Saturday MIAMI, VP) Thoroughbred hoofs pounded into the final 24-day lap of Florida's turf season at Tropical Park, today with a continuation of the boom in mu-tuel play and attendance likely as the racing scene shifted from swankier Hialeah Park and its pink flamingoes. Hialeah Park's 46-day meeting ended in record style Saturday with Columbiana winning the Widener challenge cup and $52,-00 for owner W J (Buddy) Hirsch. Most of the thoroughbred colony promptly migrated some five miles southward to carry on at Tropical Park in suburban Coral Gables. Columbiana equalled the track record of 2:01 45 for the mile and a quarter in capturing the Widener. Apprentice Jockey Hubert Le Blanc brought the four-year-old filly from third place in the stretch to finish two lengths ahead of Finance, half of Mrs Emil Denemark's favored entry. J W Parrish's field horse, Dellor, was another length and a half back for the show. A crowd of 20.468, by turnstile count, established a modern at tendance record for the track. The mutuel turnover, $730,333, was a considerable increase over the $520,006 handled on closing day last year. The total play for the meeting, $19,131,003, for a total daily av erage of $415,891, also set up a new mark for the period since Joseph E Widener assumed control of the plant. Hirsch apparently did not plan to race Columbiana at Tropical Park, but he undoubtedly will campaign the filly in the rich eastern stakes this summer.

Among those listed in the qualifying round were the little giants, Patty Berg, of Minneapolis and Katheryn Hemphill of Columbia, SC. The two have fought It out all winter and Kathryn won three tournaments to Patty's two. The flame-topped Minneapolis youngster, who feels defeat deeply, had a gleam in her eye when she left St Augustine that spelled fight.
