Only a miracle can rob the Blues of the title. They won the first half of the split season in a walk and are now dog-trotting home to another easy victory in the second half. Tonight the final game of the series will be played with Springfield. Wendell York, sensational voung pitcher who burned up the Little Nineteen conference while with Monmouth college last spring, joined the Dixon team yesterday and will take the mound tonight. He will be given a trial by the Davenport club in two or three games before the season ends. Terrible BaM-ball Springfield played terrible ball In both games last night.

The Indians will arrive in Davenport early in the morning from Kansas City and will leave tomorrow night for Milwaukee to open a series with the Brewers. The Davenport club is by far the best developed in the Mississippi Valley league since its organiza- Manager uie tion 11 years ago. tn nivr.n ha unrrminrlpri himself understand. The Red Birds aren't, uh d of youngsters who so oaa m iiuung l u.c. '"-'"'"6 have been the sensation of the cir is worse man awiui cuit this season. His outfield of Cotelle, Ed Hall and Etten, is by-far the hardest hitting trio in Class B. baseball. Cotelle is hitting .421, Hall .326 and Etten .351. Ed is also the home run king of the Valley with 26 to his credit, a new ail-time record. The Blue Sox also boast the finest infield in the Valley, with George Meyer at short and Frank Hall at second hard to beat when it comes to snappy double plays. Gene Strother has developed into one of the finest guardians of third base and Manager Dixon is still able to hold his own with the youngsters at first base. The catching department is well taken care of by Otto Denning, one of the leading hitters in the circuit, and Jim Smilgoff, rookie from the University of Wisconsin. When it comes to a patching staff, no team in the league can come close to the Blues. Bob Lengquist. southpaw, and Bill Prince, right-hander, are the veterans of the staff. Gordon Touhey is the class of rookie southpaws and Irving Cohen and Al Piechota have had great seasons in their first year of organized ball. Paul Lagomarcino, president of the club since 1929, has had much to do with the class of baseball the Blues are playing this season. He has spared no effort to give Dav enport the best to be had in the Class B league. Al Schultze is the man who pays the boys off every 15 days. He looks after the finances of the club and conducts all business at the Municipal Stadium. Last, but far from least, is Dale Eggert, the mascot who works harder than any player on the team when Davenport is at home. Dale is envied by every boy in Davenport. He's got a job they'd all like to have. Tomorrow night Davenport customers will know just how good their Blue Sox are this year. If they beat Indianapolis, which is no idle dream, the local team can boast a record never before approached by a team in the Valley. night.

"-6- and put the game away for the the visitors wouldn t have had ii:"1.,"" 6 J chance against the Blue Sox. Al Piechota went to the mound in the first game, after pitching the final four innings against Peoria the night before, and kept the Birds from becoming frisky until the late innings when he began to tire. Bob Lengquist relieved him in the ninth with the bags loaded and got the visitors out without much trouble. It was Piechota's 16th victory of the season. Irving Cohen pitched the second game. He worked five innings the night before but breezed right through the Birds, allowing them only five hits in the seven innings. Crodels was the victim in the nine inning contest and Wagner lost his ninth game of the season, without & victory, in the night-cap. Ed and Nick Again Ed Hall and Nick Etten, our sock twins, set the pace for the home club in the first game. Ed got his 26th home run of the season, a double and single in four trips. Nick came through with a triple, double and single in five times at bat. Cotelle kept up his record pace with a pair of hits in four times up. He got two for three in the second game. Etten kept up the good work in the short tilt with two for four while Ed Hall had to be satisfied with one hit. The Davenport sockers went to work in a hurry in the opening game. The crowd of 2,302 got a big jolt in the first inning when Ed Hall socked one into the river with Meyer and Cotelle on base. That gave the Blues a lead that was never overcome. Springfield scored one in the second on a walk and Turner's double but the Sox got it back in the third on hits by Ed Hall and Etten and a passed ball. Another Red Bird run came across in the fourth on doubles by Smargassi and Thomas. Davenport made up for that with three in their half on hits by Meyer, Cotelle and Etten, coupled with a pair of walks, all after two were out. The Springfield outfielders went to sleep on Meyer's fly to center in this frame, letting it drop between them for a safety. That started all the trouble. Martin Hits Homer A snappy double play, F. Hall to Meyer to Dixon, stopped the Birds when they became dangerous in the fifth, only one run scoring after a hit and three straight walks. In the seventh Martin hit one over the right field fence for Springfield's fourth . run. Two others counted in this inning. The visitors might have scored more bad they played smart baseball. Davenport got one in the fifth on F. Hall's single, an error and a pair of long flies. They pushed over three in the seventh on four hits and a hit-batsman. Springfield threatened in the ninth, when Piechota tired, but could collect only two runs, both put on base hy the starting pitcher, before Lengquist stopped them in their tracks. The second game was just about as uninteresting as the first. Davenport again started with three runs in the first inning on a pair of walks, Meyer's double and Etten's single. Springfield t'ounted twice in the second on two hits and a pair of walks. The Sox got both of them back in their half on Cohen'Si double, Co-telle's single and a pair of errors. Cohen checked the Birds in the last five frames while his mates were hitting Wagner hard in the , ixth to collect three more runs Total Score by innings: Springfield . ,'.

Veeck's proposal that baseball in terest be revived through a series of inter-league games 'in mid-sea- tcn and assured the scheme 01 thorough discussion before the 1934 reason begins. There seemed to be at least an outside chance it would be tried next year. Unqualified endorsement of the Chicago Cubs' president's plan was voiced bv Alva Bradley and Stephen W. McKeever, presidents respectively of the Cleveland, in dians and Brooklyn Dodgers. Oth er club owners almost unanimously agreed that some such radical de parture from the regular order of things was needed if baschau was to climb out of the Red. "We need some euch stimulant and I am in favor cf it," McKeever said, while Bradley pointed out he actually had advocated a definite plan for inter-league games. "Four such games in a season for each team," he said, "would give the fans a good idea of comparative skill." Sam Breadon of the St. Louis Cardinals thought the plan might increase attendance and President William Benswanger of the Pittsburgh Pirates said it was worth serious consideration. The chief dissenter was Frank J. Navin of Detroit who declared the falling off in baseball attendance was no greater than in other branches of the amusement business and that better crowds could be expected with improvement in business conditions. Kid Leonard Wins From Fred Heinz In Chicago Bout CHICAGO, 111., Aug. 23. (Special) Kid Leonard of East Moline scored another victory here last night, winning from Freddy Heinz of Saginaw, Mich., in eight rounds. Leonard had an edge most of the way, using a terrific body punching attack to good advantage. Nick Serandos of East Moline CHICAGO, Aug. 23. (Associated Press) The 1933 football season will push off tomorrow night at Soldier field with a battle be tween a great collection of far western stars, and a cquad of talent selected from the middlewest and east. From the tentative lineups, the contest will be a struggle between Southern California greats of the past few seasons, and the best Coach Dick Hanley cf Northwestern, has been able to round up from Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota and as far as West Point and Tulane. Howard Jones cf Southern California, director of the western squad, plans to use at least seven former Trojans in his battle front. The Trojans slated to lineup for the opening kickoff are Ray Spar ling, end, Tay Brown and Ernie Smith, Jones famous tackle combination; Johnny Baker, guard; Stan Williamson, center, and Mor-ley Drury and Gaius Shaver in the backfield. His other probable starting end is Dave Nisbet, Washington. Peter Heiser of Stanford is listed as the other guard, with Hank Schaldach of California, and Max Krause of Gonzaga, the remaining members of the backfield. Hanley plans to concentrate on Big Ten and Notre Dame stars. In last night's practice he had Wesley Fesler of Ohio State, and FranK Baker of Northwestern, at the flanks; Joe Kucth of Notre Dame and Jack Riley, Northwestern, tackles; Jim Harris, Notre Dame, and Clarence Munn, Minnesota, guards, and Lawrence Ely, Ne braska, at center. Harry Newman, Michigan's all- America star, will start at quar terback, with Pug Rentner of Northwestern, and Don Zimmerman, Tulane, 'another pair of ail- Americans, at the halves, and Roy Horstmann of Purdue at fullback. The contest is expected to attract around 20,000 spectators, including most of the major univer sity and college coaches. BY DON M GI IRE Associated Press Sports Writer DES MOINES, Aug. 23. (Associated Press) Pat Wilcox, an Iowa born professional now teaching golf at Norfolk, Neb., and Den-mar Miller, at various times holder af Iowa's premier links titles, started off today in quest of the state open championship a stroke ahead of their nearest rivals. Posting a pair of subpar 71s j yesterday, the two gained the jump on the rest of the field, but they found right at their heels a I pack of hard shooting profession- j als and amateurs. ! Just a stroke in the rear with a pair of par performances were Johnny Vavra, Cedar Rapids amateur ace, and Bob Wilton of Mar-shalltown, the best of the home state professionals on the basis of Lhe first round test. Pete Jordan Shoots a 73 Another stroke further back, at 73, came the defending champion, Pete Jordan, Miller's deadliest rival for most of the state titles. Tied with him was John Kraft of Oel-wein, a powerful figure in Iowa golf for several years. The groups posting 74 and 75 comprised largely the most dangerous of the professional contenders. Harold Smith of the West Okoboji club, Ted Payseur of Dubuque and Jack Hall, young Des Moines pro, were tied with an amateur, Big Bill Hagen of Sioux City, at 74. Two pros occupied the 75 class, Joe Brown of Des Moines, state professional king, and Clarence Yockey, young Kansas City contender. A large group of former stars found the country clubs rain sod den fairways a little too much for them and they wound up closely bunched in the high seventies. Andrews Has a 77 mciuoed in mis group were Dave Bonella of Ottumwa, Bob McKee of Des Moines, former amateur champion, and Bob Mc Crary of Des Moines, former open King, at 76; Art Bartlett, Ottum wa amateur, and Art Andrews, Davenport pro, both former open champions, at 77; and Gene Isaacson of Ottumwa, pro, and Clark Tilden, veteran Ames amateur, at 78. Miller, a long driver who is playing over his home course, ranks as the top favorite despite the fine field close on his trail. His consistency during the season, despite the fact that he was eliminated early in the Iowa amateur tournament a month ago, makes him the most feared of the competitors. The survivors of today's 18 hole test will resume the struggle tomorrow over the 36 hole route, completing the tournament tomorrow night. York Turns Down College Career To Join Blues Wendell York, sensational young pitcher from Monmouth college, signed away his eligibility as a college athlete yesterday when he affixed his signature to a Davenport Blue Sox contract. York had two years of college competition remaining at Monmouth hut could not see his way clear to remain In school, being without the necessary funds. So he finally agreed to turn professional when approached by Manager Cletus Dixon of the Davenport team. Wendell will pitch against Springfield tonight. He stands six feet in height and weighs close to 200 pounds. He was a star tackle on the Monmouth football team. Last spring he held the strikeout record in the Little Nineteen. He whiffed 111 during the short college season. He averaged better than ten strikeouts for the ten games, whiffing 18 Bradley batters in his final game. The youngster is a southpaw and has unusually good control, walking on an average of less than four a game. The Iowa university nine was one of his victims last spring. BOSTON TAKES Gober Holds R. I. To Five Hits as Peoria Wins, 15-2 PEORIA, 111., Aug. 23. (Asso ciated Press) Tony Gober supreme here last night, holding the Rock Island Valley leaguers hitless until the sixth, and shutting them out until the ninth inning, while Peoria hammered out a 15 to 2 victory, routing three Islander hurlers. Mizeur, Nebe-lung and Laskowski led Peoria's attack with circuit clouts.

BARKER Associated Press Sports Writer Lightning seldom strikes twice in the same spot but National league contenders, harking back to 1914, are casting an apprehensive eye on the exploits of the Boston Braves. There's still a long hard struggle ahead of Bill McKechnie's hopefuls before they can rival the feat of the Braves of 19 years ago j ennmed from last place on July 4 to win the pennant and then the j world series in successive games jfrom the Philadelphia Athletics. IBut it's not impossible. I heir fourth straight triumph over the Pittsburgh Pirates and their 17th victory in 21 games yesterday sent the Braves flying into second place, seven games behind the New York Giants. McKechnie's crew was in fifth place when their winning streak began 24 days ago. Berger's Homer Wins Wally Berger's 22nd homer ia the 1-lth inning gave the Braves their 5-4 decision over the Pirates yesterday and ruined what otherwise was an all but perfect job of relief pitching by the veteran Waite Hoyt. Going to the mound in the fourth after Youner Hal I Smith had given way to a pinch stopped Garry Baldwin in three rounds. Danny Neenan, former Golden Gloves champion knocked out Billy Webster of Milwaukee in five rounds. Keokuk Wins Mound Duel From Quincy QUINCY, 111., Auet. 23. (Asso ciated Press) The Keokuk In dians took the first game of the series from the Quincy Warriors here last night, 3 to 0, in a mound duel between Herb Bradley and Ted Nobriga. Each club collected five hits, but two of the Keokuk hits were for extra .bases and two walks issued by Nobriga, along with a passed ball, also featured in the scoring. The Warriors made several threats but were never able to convert them into runs. Becker, Keokuk catcher, suffered a broken finger in the fifth. Score: KEOKI K AB R1IPOA E Kestner.

Fred Frankhouse went the route for the Braves and allowed only ten hits, blanking the Corsairs over the last nine frames. Sharing the headlines with the Braves were the Detroit Tigers who snapped the 13-game wmnins streak of the Washington Senators with a thrilling 10-s triumph. Washington twice overcame Tiger leac's but Detroit finally won out in the ninth when Hank Green-berg, big first baseman, clouted a homer with one on and two out.
