L THE DAILY TIMES, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1936 27 ERRORS GIVE MAJORS VICTORY OVER NEGRO ALL-STARS TWO BLUNDERS 1 ME COSTLY TO COLORED TEAM Paige and Porter Grant Big Leaguers Two Hits But Lose, 2-1 NEGRO TWIRLERS WHIFF 16 Hornsby Strikes Out Four Times 2,938 Fans Witness Game BY JERRY JURGENS All because of a couple of errors in the ninth inning, the 16 strikeouts and two-hit pitching of Satchell Paige and Porter went for naught as the Major Leaguers triumphed over the Negro All-Stars, 2-1, at the Muny stadium last night. Much to the amazement of 2,938 chilled customers, there was rot a single inning that at least one of the big league boys did not fan and in all but the first and third frames two of the Hornsby clan walked back to the dugout via the strikeout route. It hardly seems possible, but the rhief victim of the blinding speed kails of Taige and Porter was none other than the great Rajah Hornsby, seven-times batting champion of the National league while - a member of the St. Louis Cards and Boston. Rogers went down swinging four times, and in all his appearances at the plate he never even secured as much as a foul tip. Thoe Two Error Before going on with any more tf the pitching details, an account of the scoring of the winning run In the ninth by the majors should be taken into consideration. It all happened so quickly that the fans did not even have time to stand up to get warm. Hornsby opened the frame by whiffing, of course. Then Big Johnny Mize, whose potent bat caused havoc with the Cub pitchers all summer, stepped to the plate nd lifted a high fly down the first base line. Wright sauntered ever under the ball and then dropped it, Mize pulling up at second. In his hurry to attempt to nab .the Cardinal first, sacker at econd, Wright threw wildly, the ball bounding into left field. Before any member of the colored aggregation could retrieve the apple, Johnny was across the plate with the winning run. Satchell Paige was a bit disgusted when he was yanked out of the box after toiling five innings. And he had a right to be. In the five frames he fanned eight and allowed only r one hit, which came with two gone in the fifth. During the span only four balls were hit to the outfield. In such fine fettle was the colored ace that all his fielders had to do was to pick up easy ground balls and throw them hither and thither with slight deliberation. Porter Good, Too Porter was not quite as effective as his pitching mate, for he walked a couple In the sixth, uncorked a JOE rALOOKA Course It's Honest BY IIAM FISHER JOEY-1 got rrff i. .

Bob Feller Visits Old Pal at S. U. .; Goes Home Monday IOWA CITY, la., Oct. 2. (Spe cial) Bob Feller, 17-year-old Cleveland hurling star, who is on his way home to receive a triumphal welcome from his home town of Van Meter, was visiting here Thursday and Friday with Harold Mandcrs, his pitching cousin from A del, who is a sophomore at the University of Iowa. .. Van Meter will hold a "Bob Feller . day" Monday and Bob will pitch for the Van Meter team in an exhibition game. The day will also mark Feller"s entrance into Van Meter high as a senior. wild pitch and fed up a hit to Mize, all of which enabled the majors to match the run that the All-Stars garnered in the fourth inning. Yet Porter went Paige one inning better in securing his strike-out total of eight. He fanned two men in each of the final four innings, but those two errors hurt him to the extent that he was charged with the defeat Jim Winford of the Cardinals was not banged hard either, although his pitching skill did not compare with that of either Paige or Porter. Eig Jim allowed five hits, two of them doubles, walked two and fanned four in hurling the entire route. His outfield trio made only one put out, the other 28 being handled by the Inner defense. Wright got the first hit, a scratch, with two away in the first, but he was out trying to purloin second. Although they did not get a safety, the colored nine had two men on the paths in the second on an error and a pass. Winford Fans Three Winford fanned three men in the third, but Hughes sandwiched a hit between the second and third outs. In the fourth the All-Stars started some trouble. Perkins doubled to right center and moved to third on Williams' sacrifice bunt. Crutch-field tapped in front of the plate, and Big Al Todd hit the runner in the foot with the ball in the attempt to get him at first. Perkins scored on the play. As already mentioned, the majors did nothing up to this point. In the fifth, Mueller, pint-sized shortstop, slashed a liner to center for a single for the first hit. King waited Porter out for a pass in the sixth and went to second on a wild pitch. Clift walked but Hornsby whiffed for the third time. Mize then singled to center, scoring ytortAmoor STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY ! ii ill &y !

Bed ViKonne, .Newark. Seml-windup: Johnny Silver, Italy V. Kay Kjan, w York. Main prelim: Bed Ace t. Pete Bartu, Hungary. Opener: Bull Curly, Buffalo T. Charley Peterunn, Waukegao. Something novel will be presented wrestling fans who attend Tri-City Sport association's new deal card at Eagles' ballroom in Davenport next Monday night. The Red Ace, a tough grappler wno chooses to keep his identity a deep, dark secret, will make his bow here against Pete Bartu, speedy Hungarian youth. They weigh 178 and 180 pounds respectively and both have speed to burn. Monday a card, which had al ready been assured success with George Mansor and Red Vagnonne on the windup and Johnny Silvey and Ray Ryan, newcomer from New York, on the semi-feature, was completed all the way through today with the Red Ace announcement and word that Charley Pet- jerson would do the 8:30 opening man, from Buffalo. Admission prices are $1.50, $1.10 and 65 cents. Getting back to Red Ace, he's the modern mystery man of the cauliflower ear pastime. Some think he's the son of a wealthy Texas oil man who sneaks around the countryside following a pet hobby, yet fearing exposure that would lead to family warfare. Others say he's a grounded aviator from Texas. Somehow or another his home seems to have been pinned down to Texas, but that is a mighty big state and has produced many famous back-benders. Red Ace is undefeated and will not show his face unless beaten. He does not count disqualifications, fearing some referee might too hastily expel him just for a look at the hidden features. Bartu, as curious as the next fellow, will attempt to have a look under the spreads, but realizes that he faces a wrestler who commands respect. Little Saints in DeWitt Tonight For Grid Fight High School Eleven Boasts More Experience Than Ambrose After laying off last week, St. Ambrose academy will go to De-Witt tonight in search of its second victory of the season against De Witt high school. Despite the fact that Nat Baird'a eleven got the poor end of an 8-6 score from the Davenport high school sophomores last week, Coach Father Bill O'Connor of the Little Saints is none too cheerful about tonight's game. His outfit is still plenty green and most of all, his biggest and most experienced linesman is on the sidelines. Big Gene Caffery, 200-pound tackle, who is one of the two veterans on the line, is nursing a shoulder injury and will probably be out for several weeks. Caffery turned in a sensational performance in the opener two weeks ago and his absence leaves Dick Don-ohoe, end, the only veteran on the forward wall. Father O'Connor will probably shift Bob St. Claire from guard, where he played in the opener, over into Caffery's berth. St. Clair weighs only 160 pounds, leaving a 40-pound deficiency at the tackle post. Bob Carroll, stocky 165-pounder, will play at the other tackle post. The Ambrose coach will probably try a new combination in the center of the line, building around either Steve Burke or Bob Arnould at center. Jack Garrett, sophomore whose shoulder injury is sufficiently repaired, and Bob Sonneville, 170-pound junior, will probably get the call at guards with early relief from Jack Davies and Ralph Tofanclli. Len Thiel and Dick Donohoe will be at ends. The backfield will be unchanged. Alex Vance will call the signals and Bob "Bowser" Johnson will bear the brunt of the attack at full.

(Associated Press) Drake university's apparently powerful football team which swamped Simpson college in an opening game last week, will meet Coe college of Cedar Rapids here tonight In Friday's only Missouri Valley game. Saturday, nowever, will see five other loop teams in action, with Washington university facing the hardest assignment of all against the University of Illinois at Champaign. Tulsa will play Central State Teachers at home Saturday, while the Oklahoma Aggies face Kansas State at Stillwater, Okla.; Washburn meets Kansas at Lawrence, and Grinnell takes on State Teachers at Grinnell. Creighton is the only loop team with an open date. Coaches whose teams play Saturday games gave their men short but hard scrimmages yesterday. Final work on passing received emphasis in every camp Indicating frequent attempts to gain through the air in week-end assignments. bouncing back, and either Wayne Adrian or George McCabe, will be at halves. GEORGE HUFF TO BE BURIED NEAR G IN ILLINOIS STUDIO M Funeral Services For.Ath letic Director Set For Saturday CHAMPAIGN, 111., Oct. 2. (Associated Press) George Huff, a pioneer in the development of amateur sport, will be buried tomorrow directly across the street from the huge Illinois football stadium which stands as a lasting memorial to his 35 years as athletic director of the institution. Mr Huff died yesterday after a brief illness from a stomach ailment. He was 64 years old. Funeral services will be held in the university auditorium and all classes will be suspended. The Rev. Herbert L. Miller of Emanuel Episcopal church will officiate. Burial will be in Roselawn cemetery, adjacent to the stadium from which a few hours after the final services will come the roar of the football crowds which Huff watched, enjoyed and was a part of for many years. The Illinois-Washington university of St. Loui3 game will be played as scheduled. "Before he died Mr Huff said he wished, in the event of his death, that there be no interruption in the school's athletic program," said President A. C. Willard. "After conferring with the family we know that Mr Huff would want the game played." Surviving are the widow, two daughters, Mrs Katherine Murphy of Champaign and Mrs Elizabeth Downs of New Orleans, and a son, George A., of Champaign. King, but Suhr grounded out to end the frame. The Stars lost an opportunity to score in the sixth when Perkins foolishly tried to sneak home from third on an infield tap. Perils doubled and moved over to the corner station on another bunt by Williams. Crutchfield grounded to Mueller, who threw to Todd to nab Perkins. Then the majors won it in the ninth on the miscues.

Time 2;05, Attendance 3.644, White Sox Hope To Win Four in Row From Cubs American Leaguers Are JEIated Over Kennedy's 5 to 1 Victory CHICAGO, Oct. 2. (Associated Press) The scrappy White Sox pointed for their second victory over the Chicago Cubs at Comis-key park today in the resumption of the 1936 city champion series. Elated by their 5 to 1 win in the opener at Wrigley field yesterday behind Vern Kennedy's four hit pitching, the Sox predicted they would end the four best out of seven affair on their home lot with victories today, Saturday and Sunday. The Cubs, however, relied on Lon Warneke's arm to even matters and were not disheartened by the initial defeat. The Sox chose Monty Stratton for mound duty today. Cold, damp weather held yesterday's crowd to slightly more than 12,000.
