TiOSTON, May 20 (UP)— Gome/, appears lo have just aboul •caclied Ihe end of his days as a najor league pitcher. The Boston Halves' front office announces Hint Gomez 1ms been elcased uncondttlonnlly. Gomez iolned the Braves this year after long iierlod of service with the Mew York Yankees. For li : years— from 1931 to 1942— I*fty was one of the mnlnntays of the bomber pitching staff. : But this 'season, he hurled only, n couple of exhibition games for the Braves. Then he developed n' sore arm and was forced to 'tile sidelines. The release of Gomez cuts the Braves' rosier lo 2C.

Tliat would be un- 'nti', for the man who trained Big :Jed Relieves he could have given from 10 to 20 pounds to any horse ever foaled and Ijcsten him. He (linibls tliat the turf will ever see his equal. Feustel Is of the opinion, however, that Count Fleet will go down n- the books as the best horse of the era. Feustel, like everybody else, was 'ooled on Count Fleet a year ago, when John D. Hortt was trying to jeddlc 'the Kentucky Derby and Pronkness winner for $4500. It was not until he snw him down the Wldcncr chute at Ijiilinout one morning that Feustel was sold on Count Fleet. It wns- n't the lime although the son of Heigh Count worked • five furlongs in a record figure. It was the long, closc-to-the ground stride which enables him to set and maintain such :i terrific pace and show no distress :it the finish. Breeding -iiul action 'are essential requisites in. a fine horse Feustel stresses! Other (|iialitles are necessary, of course, sinil while mast- tiipnolchcrs nrc . distinctive ' ordinary conformation such us that of Count Fleet. Beauty is only skin deep in lorscs, too. Northwestern University is to stage the National Intercollegiate Tennis Championship next month. The school takes the position that great number of the parlldpunls will shortly be in the armed forces, and may never have another oj>- iwrtunlty to compete. There was some pressure brought to bear to cancel the National Championships at Forest Hills lust ummer, but they were brought lo a highly successful conclusion. The standard of play compared favor- nbly with Iliat of other seasons The year 1942 will never have to apologize for its singles champion, 1'ed Schrocder. i It was a mistake to call off the ' nnjor golf tournaments. By this time It again has been demonstrated that major sports events serve an even more useful innpose with the nation at war. President Jim Gallagher offers Lou Novikoff $6000,. which isn't much for a second-year man with the Chicago Cubs, but o.«j member of the party tells me lie wouldn't pay the Mad Russian $2000 a yeur as a ball ' player. Another describes htm as ah uncertain outfielder who doesn't hit ' regularly. "'It would be a great break for of Hie pitchers. "Then he'd only have a chance of beating us 22 limes Instead of 154." And all the cubs criticism of Novikoff is not confined to hi.s performance on the field. You quickly gather Hint his teammates have no great affection for him. If Lou . Novikoff suspects the Inst-place Cute pine for him as he huffs and puffs in Los AnydCK, he's sadly mistaken.
