WEDNESDAY, JANUAR 15, 1941 Coppedge Fouls Out And Champs Get Hot- Juniors Downed 58 to 14 Jonesboro's"- fast- breaking slate champions poured Ihc ball in 34 times from tne Held and seven Limes from i lie free toss line to out-play, out-shool and out-score th.e Chicks of •Blytheville high school here Tuesday night, 75 to 32, in remaining undefeated. Joe DUdy's home forces had the situation fairly well in hand in Lit opening period and were behind only by a 11-10 .margin. The invading hot-shots pulled uway to hold a 34-19 advantage ui hal. time, led 45-23 at. the third period's end and wound up with an unchecked scoring spree in the closing minutes for 30 points in the final session. Juniors \ViUiop«<i 58-14 A preliminary contest between the junior high quintets of the two schools saw the young Papooses oh the short end of a 58 to H score and was an indication of what was to come later in the tilt between the larger fellows, ^orm^ leader for the Jonesboro juniors was tall Melvin (Pokey) Forrester, who scored 13 points in the first half and didn't play mast of the other two periods. For Blythevilie Norman Stone had six points and Bill iDeLong, a four-foot, 10-inch 13-year-old midget, had two setups. Most damaging blow of the night to the locals was a fourth foul called 011'-Big- Bp Coppedge. center who had scored 10 points ' beiLre gc-ng out with two minutes left in the half and whose presence would have been necessary throughout Lo hold down the score. Cannon Scores 25 Star of the game for Jonesboro —if there was only .one—was hardworking Bud Daugherty. n. fellow who helped the Jonesboro eleven ' win over Blythevilie in football, who sparked his team .afield and broke away from Chick guards many times to tally 19 points. A guard' named Bob Cannon was n headache all • night and scored some ' 15 points in the' last few minutes to run .up a tremendous scoring total of 25 points on 10 Held goals and five charity tosses. Sonny, Lloyd, "was -.tops for the Chicks with 11 points but the real disappointment was Hugh Dozier, forward of whom great things were expected after he tossed in enough basknts to account for 14 point In Lhn oponer against Manila hi.-.. week lluit MiuiiJa won 41 ;.o 'JM jjoxii-r wasn't u slur Tuesday night. .if jiU didi,':. di::k all nl.^ii mid A'lu>n he wt-j.t in at centsr 1,0 rt-- pliic'e Ccppedge he hud too !>lg u load on his shoulders and couldn't produce.

New or Used LOS ANGELES, Jan. 15. (UP)— Peace has come to Patty Berg, and she says it's wonderful. The little red-head finally has lost the" freckles which were as much her golfing trade-mark as her distance off the tee. Also.since she turned professional, she has released a half-dozen of her dearest friends from the tortures they suffered when she was trying for championship honors as an amateur. , I talked lo Patty in Hollywood last night and no longer is she the Minneapolis moppet. She is., a working girl, out on her own, with poise and sureness which once she showed cnly when she addressed a ball on the green. SlVe was pleased when l told her her 'freckles were nearly gone. . Freckles Worried Her "Thank goodness for that, . l hoped you'd notice it." she said in the cinegrill of" the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel, where she is staying while giving golf clinics in nearby California schools. "You;!! never know how much time and money r spent on those darn freckles. I never could see how they were cute and at one lime f had 39 different kinds of freckle lotion. I had so many of. these jars that I had to carry two in my golf bag." ;i But the greatest happiness which has come to ..Patty because of her desertion of the amateur ranks is the knowledge that no longer do her friends and her fathers friends die untold deaths w'ien she fades a brassie into a trap, slices into the rou^h or three-pjutts a ; twelve footer. "You remember how dad suf- ferecl/' she said, "i recall the stories you wrote about the way divd used to" wander around the course when I was-playing as an amateur. He was afraid to get close enough to see me make a bad shot anci at the same time was afraid to get so far away he couldn't hear about it." lias Avid Pans Mr. Berg was not the only one who heaved a .sigh of relief wnen Patty stepped off the first tee. '/.here Ls her brother, Herman Jr., who came to breaking nis neck when she won the National. Herman Jr. was atop a step-ladder when she canned her last putt, leaned too far to one side attempting to urge the ball in. and landed I on an old lady from Poughkeep.sie , who wasn't as worried about ii,-r- ' man's broken collar bone a.s uooir. her crushed Victorian bonnet. Frank Ptinke, Lee Lc.-k\vuod ai;c! Marshall Nelson are three others io whom Patty has brought peace by quitting the chase for cups.

Outside the. box the Browns have u yood ball dub. With some steady piu-hing they might make a bid for a first division berth. Even wit'i year's .spotty pitching they wt;'e iu division ahead of the Yankees at one time. They finally wound up in sixth place with a percentage of .435. their highest since 19H4. Most of the Browns' off-season tfforts havsr been direett-'! toward bolstering their pitching. They ] bought Fritfc Ostermueller and Denny from the Red .Sox, johnny Allen from the Indians anci George Caster from tne Athletics. If they have as much luck with any one of them as they dicl with Eldon Auker, who wa.s bought from the Red Sox and wor IU games last season, they are likely to J>e the class of the second division. Missions Send Stars Besides the four pitchers bought from the American League clubs the Browns have two of the best youth pitchers in the minors coming up from San Antonio. Bob Muncrief. big right-hander named the most valuable player in the Texas League who won 22 games and lost 9. and Maurice Newlin, slight right-hander who won' 23 games and lost 8. The pitching holdovers from last year-old righthander Haynes worked in 22 games for the Sena tors last year and won only three and lost six. * * * season include Auker, Emil Bildilli, Vernon Kennedy, Bob Harris, jolm .Miggeling, Roxie LUWSOM, ;ind John Whitehead, who pitched a 7-inning no-hit, no-run game for hi.s cnly victory.

CHAMPION BOXER OF ANGEHT GREECE, SCORED 140O CONSECUTIVE, KNOCKOUT*/ COMMENT. 1 : IF THAT SOUNDS to you like .a sensible idea, then listen to this. It's a story of an average golf pro: He has been a caddy for four or five years, then lie got a job in a' pro shop and worked far five years learning club-making and repairing. how to handle the varied types of golf-players and doing some instruction work under tutelage of the head pro. ' + ?. * * . After five years — if he's suitable to the state Professional Golfers' association, he is given a membership in the P. G. A. and can go out and get a job at a recognized golf club as head pro — if he can find a spot. He has been in golf nine or 10 'years and has seen lots of "bad golf and knows what to do.
