Ona look at the American League's .weekly pitching averages Is 'TK-oof . that Pln?ras Is having one o( his. best 'seasons .on the mound since he became a regular startin* pitcher for ths Yankees In 1W7. He had a poor year In 193!. but it was due almost entirely to an appendicitis operation that kept him out of the game early in the campaign. From 1921 to mid-season of 1927, Fipsr&s was a batsman's most dangerous emmy. a soeed ball pitcher without a semblance of control. In those years he was chased or drawn out of the Dakota League to the American League,' to the. South Atlantic, io the American again, to the Southern, to the American Association. While at St. Paul in 1926 he learned to control for the first time. A succession of double-headers which left the Yankee mound staff limn and exhausted in August of 1927 gave Plpfrras his first starting assisnment. He surprised everybody including the lata Miller Hug- Kins, Yankee manaeer, with con- iiol of his assortment of fast balls. knuckle balls, curves and "sailers." He went on to win 10 games after the middle of August.

A headline, bearing on the approaching .Schmeiing-Walker con- Illct. says: "Walker Rated Tough Fve by Jacobs." That fellow Joe Jacobs Is hard to understand.

Dapper jack says Maxle will not be able to stand up under Walker's body attack, pointing out that "Max isn't constitutionally' able to take a hearty wallop in the bread basket." Just when could any fighter lake a "hearty wallop" in the bread basket arid laugli It off? Filisiminons beat .Corbctt with "a heoriy wallop to the bread basket." Dempscy beat Firpo with body blows. Willard came very close to beating Jack Dempsey through a haymaker he landed on Jack's .midriff, corbett prepared I he mighty old John L. himself for a knockout by devastating body punches. Johnson ruined Jcrr wilh body punches. Jeff, himself was u great body beater, and won many of his rights that way. it Is to be hoped that Doctor Kearns was not thinking to make any sudden revelation when he disclcscd that Max "couldn't take a hearty wallop In (he bread basket."

There are two Judges and a i-cferec for every contest In New York, and you r.ever know what these gentlemen's political ideas are about the fight. | This writer made the mistake of picking Sehmollng as Ihe ^'liner of his bout with Sharkey. it was a lasting lesson when Joe Humphries crawled into the ring and announced that the "wlnnah and new champion" was Ja'cX Sharkey.

What I think mil happen in this one is that Mickey Walker will be knocked out. That's my 2 cents' worth. But you can't even be sure, that a knockout flUl *In. Ask Jack Ucmpsey "''' There are limes and conditions that call for a pltch-and-run or a run-up shot and because it a easier to execute than a properly pitched shot, golfers are content to send the ball along the ground. Often a player w.n watch a badly topped approach run along until it comes to rest on the green and try to tell himself that results justify a foozle. When a topped shot is caught by a iray he ac-' ccpts it as punishment deserved. There are cases when a well- pitched shot kicks badly arid receives unmerited punishment, but on the whole It is far safer to send the tall up In.the'air where' there arc no bunkers for the greater pan of the distance the ball travels. • ' IJ" K FAR »«R TO SWO tf 8*11 into f£ AIR Here's Opposition For B.
