THE FREMONT NEWS-MESSENGER, FREMONT, OHIO, SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1911 PAGE SEVEN Elmore Defeated As Dark Horses Dominate State Tourney PRESS PASSES Over the Desk From Dick Beif News-Messenger Sports Editor Questions and Answers . . Comes a card from a Franlau K. Lutz of Wapakoneta, asking us to answer a few Questions in regard to Johnny Orphal, who labored on the hill here for the Green Sox for a time last summer. It's really the first baseball missive of the season and, if for no othej reason, deserves mention. Mr. Lutz (we assume it's a Mr.) asks three questions, as follows: ' 1. Have you seen Orphal pitch? If so, do you think he is better than a Class D pitcher? 2. Why did the Fremont club suspend him last season? 3. Why don't the Fremont club give him his release, that he has requested, so that he can sign with some other club? Before we make any attempt to answer the above queries we think that we should assure Mr. Lutz and the public here as well, that we are not answering for the baseball club. We will try and answer the questions the same as we would if Mr. Lutz had button-holed us on the street and, grasping the front of our coat in one hand and shaking the other, rolled into a fist, into our face. First, this pillar saw Orphal on - the mound just as often as he started on the home park and followed his efforts on foreign diamonds through the medium of the newspapers. It might be easy to gee that we thought him better . than a class D hurler, but that wouldn't be quite honest. When he was good he was very, very good as his strikeout of 120 in 13 games proves, but like most class D chuk-kers, he was bad as often as he was good. That record of six victories and five defeats proves that. So the pillar doesn't honestly believe he was ready for faster company on what he displayed here last year. His winning percentage of .545 left him far down on the list among Ohio State league pitchers. Second, the reason for his suspension was entirely between him and club directors. We aren't positive of the reason, but If we remember correctly, It was about the time some of the players thought they were bigger than baseball and threatened to strike if Ray Caldwell was released as manager and refused to do their best for Luke Sewell. Overestimate Value . . Third, we Imagine that the reason the club won't give him his release is because he has been mailed a 1941 contract to play here. The Sox took him on after his release by another club and gave him a job for two seasons and if another club wants him, they must pay for his contract. In class D no pitcher, no matter how many games he wins, is worth the salary he draws unless he is salable material or so colorful that he is a big gate attraction. Seldom are they the latter, and Just as seldom do they realize the truth of the above statement. So the only value Orphal has to the club here is what they may obtain from his sale. No club has yet asked for a price on his head and so, if he wishes to play baseball anywhere, he must sign his contract and return it to Fremont. No, Mr. Lutz we feel that you view these matters in the wrong light. Players may be of value to a club, but it is the club that gives them the opportunity to get into the game and perhaps prove their worth and go on to a career. Players can't be handed releases just because they feel they would like a change. And as for Johnny Orphal, as much as we liked his work at times he was still strictly class D in our opinion because against the tougher clubs he often broke. He didn't prove himself as better than a class D hurler and we are afraid that's what he will remain until he proves himseif ready for faster company. Short Takes ...

Ponderous Abe Simon, 254 pounds of him, has joined the ranks of 14 other futile contenders for Joe Louis' world's heavyweight championship, but in so doing he gave the Brown Bomber the hardest and most surprising fight he has experienced as title-holder, fooling everybody in a standing-room crowd of 18,908 in Detroit's Olympia arena last night. Three thousand were turned away. Simon, figured to last no longer than four rounds, fell victim to a technical knockout after one minute and 20 seconds of fighting in the 13th round. Referee Sam Hen-nessy humanely stopped the sensational battle after Louis had knocked Simon down twice for counts of nine in that fatal round. Simon was on hit feet, his hands gripping the top rope of the ring in his own corner, but he was helpless and could not continue. As a reward for his courageous and surprising showing, Promoter Mike Jacobs planned today to give Simon another shot at the title. He intends to rematch the pair for a 15-round engagement in New York, May 16. Simon and his manager, Jimmy Johnston, protested ending the fight Simon declared that Louis' blows did not hurt him at any time. He shouted defiance at Louis even when the doctors were closing an inch and one-half gash in the lid of his left eye: "Why did they stop it?" he demanded. "It was the 13th round, wasn't It? And this was Friday, too. Holy, jumping Bolivar! The next time I fight I hope it's on Thursday." PUNCHES FLY IN MAT MATCH Ortti And Kilonis Prove Too Dirty In Tag-Team Brawl At Arena Another pair of mat villains bit the dust at the Jackson arena Friday night in one of the wildest and wooliest exhibitions of legalized mayhem staged here yet, as Tarzan Paul Orth and Gentleman Mike Kilonis fell before Gorilla Pogi and Gil La-Cross, who subbed for rat Riley. Running in competition with the Louis-Simon brawl in Detroit, the wrestlers proved they were just as good by throwing probably more punches than whistled through the air in the Motor City. At that, it took some help on the part of Referee Les Fishbaugh to lick the villains, as he disqualified Orth and Kilonis in the final fall. Pogl and LaCroes wasted no time in getting started and took the first fall. The two took turns working on Kilonis, keeping him from his partner's corner? and then made short work of Tarzan Paul, who took plenty of punishment. All Nice Boys The second fall was different and dirtier. Orth and LaCross must have thought they were boxers as they stood toe-to-toe and slugged, but it was only a warmup for the finale. With the match all square, Gil came out strong and tied up Kilonis with arm locks and then Orth took up the lambasting. He got tired and pushed his opponent into Kilonis' corner where both could work on him. While Fishbaugh was breaking up this tangle, Orth stepped back and pinned the unsuspecting LaCross. Orth and Kilonis figured they could do no wrong but the second time they cornered a man in their own section of the ring, Fishbaugh dis qualified them. The tag-team match was a riot of action, fists, butts and everything else from start to finish and undoubtedly the boys will be re-matched for a grudge battle here later. . BOBCATS MEET CITY COLLEGE IN GARDEN NEW YORK, March 22. Ohio University and Seton Hall, led by a pair of the most brilliant individual stars ever to appear in Madison Square Garden, tackle canny metropolitan cage rivals tonight in the semi-finals of the National Intercollegiate Invitational Basketball Tournament. Ohio University faces the small but smart City College quintet and Seton Hall opposes the big Long Island University team. With all the reserved seats for tonight and for Monday's finals already sold, indications are that the crowd will approach the Garden record of 18,341 established last Wednesday.

Third Period Slump Gives Xenia Team 27-23 Victory Ottawa Countians Unable To Hold First Period Lead; Practically Every Favorite In Both Classes Out Of Play The last of the northwestern Ohio quintets bowed out of the state basketball tournament Friday when Elmore, Fremont district titlists and Ottawa county champions dropped a heart-breaking game to Xenia, Ohio Soldiers & Sailors Orphanage by a 27 to 23 score. A mid-game slump cost Coach Al Turner's boys both! the game and a berth in the semi-final round. Away to a 12 to 5 lead in the opening period, the Ottawa countians lost most of their advantage in the second period when they were outscored, 11 to 5, although they still managed to cling to a 17 to 16 edge at halftime. The third period was the downfall. After tying the score at 18 to 18, the Elmore lads faded, the lone free throw being the only point they scored in the entire stanza whila the Orphans were ringing up seven for a 23 to 18 lead. Tired from the long grind, the Turnermen just couldn't rally. Capt. Bob Schroerter, who was- . m the spark-plug in the first round j .-., . 4 rUKICKo WILL HEAR WESTFALL victory over Berlin, was held scoreless from the field and managed to account for but two points.

SECOND HALF STARTS ON JULY 4TII. By FRITZ HOWE1X COLUMBUS, O., March 22. fP Eight "dark horses" were set for battle today in the semi-finals of the state high school basketball tournament as the result of a series of upsets which swept favored squads out of both class A and class B competition in the two opening rounds. Proof that season records mean absolutely nothing when the chips go down in tournament play was offered in Friday's second round. In each game of the eight on the program, the team with the poorer record for the season came home the winner. Still in there battling in class A are Martins Ferry, Massillon, Lakewood and Xenia Central. Up to date that quartet has won 74 and lost 11 games. More Upseta Their second round victims were Cincinnati Hughes, Springfield Township of East Akron, Canton McKlnley and Newark, a quartet that had won 77 and lost seven. In class B the "upset" angle was still more pronounced. Remaining in today's semi-finals In the smaller school .ector are Midvale, Can-field, Glenford and Xenia O. S. & S. O. Home, tie four having won 87 while losing 15 this season. They eliminated Hicksville, Elmore, Hanover Township of Hamilton, and Cridersville and that foursome had A'on 96 while losing but seven. Class A Is minus its two unbeaten squads, Springfield! Township and Middletown, and once-beaten Canton McKinley, but twice-beaten Martins Ferry and Lakewood. thrice-defeated Xenia Central, and Massillon vhich has lost four, are still in there pitching. No matter which teams win the championships tonight, two new names will go on the big trophies since none of the eight semi-final ists has ever copped the crown. Xenia Has Two Two youngsters who broke the individual one-game scoring records in the opening round contests bowed out last night to lose their chance at the all-game mark. Dee Snelling of Newark, who scored 27 in the opening class A scrap to beat Youngstown Raven, added 14 last night but couldn't stave off a 47-3S beating at the hands of Xenia. Roger Phillips, Cridersville's all-Ohio center, who counted 33 in the opener against Fairfield Township for new class B record, was stopped with 11 in the second round as Cridersville bowed to Midvale, 30 to 23. With the field full of darkhorses, the unaffiliated fans are rooting for two Xenia squads to grab the laurels. If they do, that Greene county town of 10.000 will be the first in history to have both champions. Regardless of the outcome, however, the soldiers and sailors orphans' home can claim the title of "No, 1 class B athletes of the year," for vhe cadets hold the class B track ind field championship, boasted an undefeated football season and here they are in the basketball semi-finals, and going strong. Michigan Grid Captain To Be Speaker At Athletic Banquet PORT CLINTON, March 22.

The winners will clash In the finals at 8 p. m. BACK TO GARDEN ST. PETERSBURG. Fla. Don Padgett, the St Louis Cardinals' man of many positions, may go back where he started the outfield. With Johnny Mize in the fold, there's no need for Padgett to learn first-baseing and the backstopping of young Walker Cooper and the veteran Gus Man-cuso has just about decided Manager Billy Southworth to return Padgett to the garden. HERE THE ANSWER MIAMI, Fla. Cleveland's Indians don't lack explanations for their consistently poor batting in "Grapefruit League" games. They say they haven't had enough time for batting practice, due to their bus-jumping exhibition schedule, and that rookie pitchers have been making efforts to cross them up and make good showings for themselves.
