THE FREMONT MESSENGER. FREMONT. OHIO. TUESDAY, MAY 17, 1033 PAGE NINE Ml LIZ? LA PRESS PASSES Over the Desk From Jerry Liska Messenger Sportt Editor Meet the Boys . . . Your stalking sleuth appointed himself a reception committee of one Monday night to extend welcome to four baseballers to fair Fremont. They arrived here, cum magnum speed, from Findlay to give aid to the Fremont club which launches into the 1933 season of the Ohio State loon Wednesday at Tiffin. The quartet was released by Manager Grover Hartley, of the Browns. But don't get the idea they're castof f s. We chatted an hour with the four and were impressed with their enthusiasm, ambition and burning desire to show Hartley he was all wrong in letting them go. And, impartially speaking, their records don't look so bad. As a matter of fact, we're inclined to place credence in the assertion made by Hartley here Sunday that he'd ship over some "pretty good boys". Step up and meet them . . . Dick Zies, who calls Oxford, Ind., his native clime . . . he's a 19-year-old southpaw whc saw action half of last season with Findlay ... He won three and lost three ... but two of those wins came during Find lay's surprise showing against Mansfield in the post season playoff . . . about 6 foot, one inch tall, weighing 175 . . . F. George Hill, a 200-pounder, well-proportioned, from Vicksburg, Mich . . . another pitcher, but right-handed . . . He was sent from Springfield in the Middy loop to Findlay . . . Did right well as leading hurler on the Lincoln Park championship team in the Michigan Intercounty league not so long ago . . . chalking up 22 victories in 23 starts . . . Incidentally, last year he worked in the Ford plant with Johnny Jablonski, great receiver for the Fremont Reds. And still another pitcher Glenn Fletcher, 19, of Danville, who was on the firing line quite a bit for Findlay last summer, winning 6 and dropping 9 . . . "However," comments nonchalant Fletcher, "don't forget five of those defeats came from the championship Mansfield team." . .' . He originally caught on as a rookie with Danville in the now defunct Three-Eye league ... A right hander, Fletcher weighs about 175, stands five feet, 10 inches. The fourth lad is Paul Faciorek, of Detroit, who is making his first whirl in organized ball. . . . He's a jovial 195 pound catcher about 5 feet, 10M Inches tall . . . Playing with the Packard team in the fast United Auto Workers loop, he belted the ball at a .462 clip during 18 games last season. ... American League's Eastern Clubs Seek Pennant In West By HUGH 8. FIXLERTOX, Jr. Associated Frew Sports Writer According to no less an authority than Joseph Vincent McCarthy, who is pretty sure his New Yorc Yankees will finish on top for the third straight year, the west is the place to win the American league pennant. Joe's reasoning isn't quite clear in the light of current standings, for Cleveland in second place is the only western entry in the league's first division. The Boston Red Sockers head the parade and the Yanks and Washington are running third and fourth, all within two games of the lead. Likewise the eastern clubs won 22 out of 32 games during the recent home stand against the west. The western jaunt which today finds the Red Sox facing Chicago's White Hose and the Yanks at St. Louis after advance openings yesterday, may have a lot to do with 'straightening out that close pen-inant race. j Far Cuhs I The New York Giants have prac-Itlcally the same idea about the 1 National league flag and everything seems to bear out their con-I tention that they can virtually set-'tle the race in the next couple of I weeks. Breezing along under a comfortable five-game lead, the Giants open their home stand to-;day against the Chicago Cubs, con sidered about the most dangerous of the western group. Cleveland's Indians began the east-west series yesterday turning ; back the Philadelphia Athletics, 4-3 In 10 innings and moving Into sec- i ond place. The victory put the .Tribe a half gnme up on the Senators, who suffered their fourth 'straight defeat at Detroit's hands, ! 13-7. ) Successive doubles by "Bad (News" Hale and Jeff Heath In the 10th gave the Indians their winning run against the A's. Vernon Kennedy pitched seven-hit ball for Detroit to gain his fifth straight triumph with barking that included a homer with bases full by Rudy York and one by Charley Gehringer with one aboard. Schumacher Thumped The Giants got a few bad plays out of their systems before facing the Cubs as they took a 12-3 drubbing from the cellar-dwelling Phillies. Hal Schumacher had practically nothing on the ball. Chuck Klein, Gene Corbett, Her-schel Martin and Pinky Whitney contributed home run for the Phils. Deacon Danny MacFa y d e n pitched and batted the Boston Bees to a 5-4 victory over Brooklyn in the day's only other game. He limited the Dodgers to six blows and his double started the winning rally in the seventh. Fremont Prepares For Opening of Season Latuson Little, Amateur Star , . Since Lawson Little, the nation-lean Walker Cup ally known links star, will trod the fairways at the Fremont Golf course just a week from today, this "historiette" of the impeccable golf great, compiled by the golf division and research department of A. G. Spalding company, should be worth while repeating. In 1927, at the age of 17, Little played in his first big tournament, the Western championship, where he had the misfortune to go up against the veteran Chick Evans In the first round, but put up so strong a fight that Evans barely won by 3 and 2. Little, in 1928, just before his 18th birthday,, surprised the California golfing clan by winning the Northern California amateur championship. The following year, 1929, Little made his debut In national competition, by defeating Phillips Finlay and Johnny Goodman In the United States Amateur after the latter had elim inated Bobby Jones. Francis Oui-met finally stopped his march in the quarter finals, where he defeated Little one up on the 36th hole. From then on, Little made consistent, steady progress. Starting In 1934, his selection on the Ameri- team was the turning point in his career. His first Important victory came when he won the British Amateur crown by defeating Jimmy Wallace, 14 and 13, the widest margin in his tory. Later in the year, he won the United States Amateur title by beating David Goldman, 8 to 7. To prove these two wins weren't flukes, he also captured the Northern California Open championship and in the United States Open was the low amateur. In being the first golfer to have ever performed such a feat. He won the British title by defeating Dr. William Twedell, former Walker Cup captain, 1 up, and then returned to America to score the first repeat "double, iam in the game s history. "In scoring his "double slam" In the two major championships, both here and abroad, Little won 31 con secutive matches. The same year in hu first and only appearance in the Brtish Open, he finished fourth, leading the entire American delegation and in the 1935 Masters' tournament. at Augusta, Ga., against the pick of the professional and amateur field, he finished sixth. CANTON STILL PACING MID-A PORTSMOUTH, O., May 17. AP -Erie and Portsmouth finally got a ball game played and the Sailors knew today that the Red Birds had man who could do a right fair piece of pitching. Rained out three times, the mid-Atlantic league clubs met last night and Ernest White proceeded to whiff 11 Erie batters and Issue not walk while his mates slapped balls all over the park for 11 hits and a 9 to 0 victory. Canton took Springfield into camp again, 10 to 5, shoving the Indians down to fourth place and more firmly establishing the Terriers on the pinnacle. Dayton finally won a game in the Ducks' home park, humbling Akron 10 to 5. The Yanks made it interesting for a while but Dayton's eighth inning spurt rewrote an old story for the foe, Charleston's Senators found Jefferson's wildness profitable and whipped Johnstown, 6 to 2. Air Mull Week, May 13-21 WAR ADMIRAL GETS JBACKING NEW YORK, May 17. P Bar ring injury or mness, there no longer is any doubt that War Ad miral will go to the post . a firm favorite over Seabiscult In their $100,000 race on May 30 at Bel mont Park. For a time after the match was made there were no odds to speak or, out money nag begun to pour in on the Admiral now, and that seems to settle the matter. Backing for the Biscuit so far has been more oral than actual. In the largest wager yet recorded an eastern sportsman placed $20,000 on War Admiral in the high expectation of winning $12.-000. As a direct result, the odds against Seabiscult were stretched out to 7 to 5. The seeming discrep. ancy represents, or courst, the reason why you never see a bookmaker in a breadline. There has been nothing about the workouts of the two equine heroes to set the odds so pointedly In War Admiral's favor. Air Mall Wrrk.

P Cy Young, one of the original "iron men" of baseball, has come home to roost within 200 yards of the old Huntington avenue bail grounds where he used to mow down enemy batsmen as the star hurler for the Boston Red Sox. Now 71 years old, Cy, who won mora than 500 games in 21 seasons and pitched three no-hlt contests, has given up farming at his birthplace, Peoli, O., to turn hotel man. He has what most retired ball players would consider an ideal job. As manager of Putnam's hotel, a good part of his labor consists of being a "greeter." mean seventh place even sixth should Milwaukee lose to Minneapolis. LouisviHe and Milwaukee shared sixth place with six wins and 14 defeats while the Birds were a half game behind with a 5 and 14 record. Time Out For Golf 5Vsar 3 ? , "werir . XeI I- - I Vi t 1 ! PLAYERS TREK INTO CITY AS DEBUT NEARS Condition Field for Thursday's Inauguration; Findlay Boys Here Anderson field was polished and manicured Tuesday for the first time this year, as the Fremont baseball club hustled to get the stage set for the Ohio State league opener here against Tiffin Thursday afternoon. Grass and weeds were cut and a roller hammered the diamond in to shape. Meanwhile, the club ros ter was expected to Increase throughout the day as candidates arrived from all parts of the state. Veterans Appear Monday, four players released from Findlay by Manager Grover Hartley appeared on the scene. They included Dick Zies, 19, F. George Hill, 20, and Glenn Fletcher, 19, all pitchers, and Paul Pa-ciorek, 19, catcher. Zies, a lefthander, and Fletcher saw considerable experieince with the Browns last season, with the former winning three and losing three and the latter copping six in 15 starts. Hill, weighing close to 200, originally was signed with the Spring field club In the Middy league, and then went to Findlay. Paciorek, 195 pounds, caught for the Pack-ards in the U. A. W. loop In Detroit, and clouted .462 for 18 games. Meanwhile, Capt. A. Otto Bau-mann, business manager, stated that it was definitely decided to hire Chappie Geygan as playing manager. The former Sandusky and Marion pilot, one of the live liest performers in the league's short history, was said to be in Columbus, but was expected to arrive here Tuesday, or early Wednesday. More Expected Baumann also said the following players definitely were lined up and were slated to be here at any hour: (Joseph Black, Jr., of Port Clinton, outfielder and pitcher; Thomas Kinney, also of Port Clinton, pitcher; Charles Rettmier of Columbus, pitcher, and Joe Se-menik of Fremont, pitcher and outfielder. Club officials said a number of other candidates were expected to apply within the day. Several of these probably will be from Tiffin, where the club already has been whittled down to fighting size. The four players from Findlay planned to work out at the field Tuesday, but asserted they were in fine shape from their drills with Findlay. Admission Prices Baumann announced that admis sion prices would be 23 cents for field and 40 cents for grandstand, with a special rate of three grand stand seats for $1, which may be used at any time. The club directors met at the National Bank of Fremont Monday night to Iron out minor details, and despite the fact that the team was not yet on the field, seemed confident that everything would be set when the Fremont organization takes the diamond at Tiffin for its season opener Wednesday afternoon. ; Uaiformi of the former Reds will be used, it was said, and the nickname of the Cincinnati club will be retained. Games at 5:30 p. m. Installation of lights will begin within a few days, with expected operation by June 1. Until that time, day ball will be played. Day time games are scheduled for 5:30 p. m. No word was received from either Mansfield or Marlon Monday, but it was felt these two teams were certain, if late entrants. Schedule printed elsewhere in this page is for the first half of the 110-game campaign.

P Rookie hurlers Johnny Humphries and Bill Zuber were assured todav of berths with the Clevelnnd Indians as the tribe's1 roster was trimmed to the 23-player limit which all American League teams must reach by May 23. Shortstop Lloyd Russell was sent to New Orleans of the Southern Association on option, and while the Pelicans returned Infielder Don Gugler to the tribe It was announced Gugler would be farmed out to another minor league team. Two Philadelphia rookies made their major league debut yesterday as the Indians edged the Mack-men, 4 to 3, in ten Innings. Dick Sicbert, up from the Columbus Red Birds of the American Association, turned in some fancy first base fielding and made two hits In four trips to the plate, batting in the cleanup position. Boots One Sam Chapman, star football halfback from the University of California, played centerfield for the Athletics but failed to get a hit in four times at bat, and his two base muff of Averill's fly ball led to a Cleveland run. Willis Hudlin was credited with the Cleveland victory, replacing Johnny Allen who was yanked for a pinch-hitter in the ninth with the bases full and one out. FAVOR WOLVES IN BIG MEET Buckeye Coach Picks Mich, to Win Big Ten Title With Ease COLUMBUS, O., May 17. P Ohio State university's track coach. Larry Snyder, unhesitatingly pick ed Michigan today to win the 38th annual Big Ten track and field meet here Friday and Saturday. "No team in the conference can come close to the Wolves," the Buckeye coach asserted ruefully. T wouldn't be surprised if Mich igan scored 60 points Saturday. Any other team would be lucky to get around 40. ' The Michigan team romped away from Ohio State last Saturdoy, 78 to 53, for its fourth victory over the Ohio State thinclads this season, j Watson Star Heading the Michigan contln-! gent will be Billy Watson, negro flash who is an odds-on favorite to defend successfully his shot put. discuss and hroad jump titles. In the distance events will be Ralph Schwarzkopf, Michigan sophomore who humbled Indiana's Don Lash Ir the mile run this year. "But, In addition to their high-ranking stars," Snyder said, "th2 Wolves have plenty of boys who are certain point-winners, and it's those boys who pick up points here and there who really win the j championship. All of which, in Snyder's estimation, leaves the Hooslers, Wisconsin, Iowa and Ohio to fight It out for the other places.

The Interest manifested In this issue is but a natural sequence. As the custom of catching live bait is as old as the custom of catching fish, being denied one of these priveleges appeals to some as an Infringement of personal rights. A complete analysis of thin problem causes one to wonder why this protective measure has not become effective before this, and those who read between the lines, will surely comprehend that the time Is not far distant, when the taking of live bait will be permanently prohibited in all state owned waters. From the beginning of Buck Weaver, the Hoosier hotshot, and Flash Clifford, Britain's only lion-taming grappler, will provide the fireworks In the weekly mat show at the Jackson arena Friday night. Promoter Les Flshtxiugh paired the two by popular demand, following Clifford's brilliant win over Indian Kirkland here last week end. It will be the first time they have ever met.

We are making progress In restoring the shelter, avariciously and thoughtlessly destroyed by mnn for years, and to complete the cycle of sustenance, must adequately supply the natural food to satisfy the cannibalistic diet of all game fish. Each succeeding year will find more artificial lures used, which will automatically decrease the demand for live bait, and it is a yery safe prediction that before many yenrs pass, what live bait It marketed, will he produced In private ponds. This procedure Is being agitated in many states, and once such a plan becomes effective, the net cost to the dealers and users should not exceed the present cost. Would You Wear a Button?

If the new ruling causes the live bait users to comprehend the fundamental reasons motivating the action, and functions as a stimulant to convert them to the use of artificial lures. It will mean the regimentation of conservation officials and private conservationists working for a common cause to restore to the state's game fish the natural food supply which rightful ly belongs only to them. I say rightfully because It is one of nature's laws of evolution. I would like to see one of the national sportsmens' magazines, the Isaac Walton League, or the state con servation department, sponsor movement whereby every angler who refrained from using; any livs ' bait taken from water for use In angling, would wear a button with an appropriate Insignia. There are thousands In Ohio now who would wear them and thousands more who would, when they fully real ized the significance of such .8 movement. Would you wear a button? If such a millennium ever occurs I'll take up worm raising . as a side line. Who Catches the Most Fish? In connection with the problem of the dealers getting a sufficient supply of live bait from the streams for those who Insist on using them, conies the question of which type of anfjler really catches the largest number of fish, the live bait useis or the ones who use only artificial lures. I would not attempt to settle this question but my personal opinion Is that the artificial lure boys lead the field by a large margin. When the elements of pleasure and sport enter the Issue, the angler who depends entirely on his artificial lures for his catches will insist he derives mnre actual pleas ure from t he sport. I do not agree with those who differentiate by defining the angler as one who uses only artificial lurei, and tha fisher as one who does not. There art many artificial lure purists who do not fish for the species that cannot be caught on their lures, while a lot of us do like to use worms for catfish and perch, and while I have read about both species being caught on artificial lures, I have never seen It done and have never been able to do it myself. Until I know for a certainty that It can he done with some degree of regu larlty. I'll stick to Webster's definition of an angler. Camden, N. J. Orville Brown 228.

Everyone was watching the limit, and for the first time in present day history some of the crappies were ranging from sixteen to twenty Inches in length, and some caught weighed over two pounds. The year previous the slate had placed 7,000,000 finger-ling feeder fish in that river and Its natural food life, necessitate the expenditure by the state in supplying the 7,000,000 feeder fish? And if so, would the account balance? Waiving the monetary issue, you cannot fatten a hog by depriving it of food, and the same law applies to all physical life. Th more natural food left in the streams, ths less it will cost the state, the more fish we will have, and the more we can brag about the size of the fish we bring home.

It has more action than a" barefoot boy experimenting with his first hornets nest. Last wee, with one of these new lures, I took twelve large crappies before my two companions, using minnows, had creeled any. I had two little featherweight lures in my hat band while the two other fellows were each drncqing around a bucket of water and some gasping minnows. , The inconvenience of carrying cumbersome live bait containers converting many to artificial lure. The artificial lure artist can always have his entire angling accessories in his car ready for Immediate action when any opportunity comes, while the live bait addict has to hunt around for a place to purchase bait or spend valuable time getting some himself. In fishing, as in all of life's pursuits, results are what count, so if we can get the same, or rerhaps better results, by using artificial lures, thereby helping to conserve the natural food supply for a more abundant and healthier future fish populationlet's do it- This column answers all iniuiries pertaining tc fishing and hunting Address all inquiries with stamped addressed envelope, to J.
