ELEVEN Air Lanes Will Have Busy Evening As All Stars Meet Green Bay LINCOLN EVENING JOURNAL. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER I, 1937. MIOIHf i OUR faith U wobbling all over the place. After accepting and adjusting ourselves to the fact that there ain't no Santa Claua, we're wondering about some of our pet port announcers. Granted that It U a tough job. it still doesn't excuse: (1) Clem McCarthy for getting bo far off the track on the Louis-Fair fight as to lead everyone to think that Tonypandy Tom should have had the decision. (2) Ted Husing, in describing the national amateur golf finals, relating how Goodman and Billows, unable to decide who was away on the green, called upon the referee to decide. Golfers in match play have nothing to say as to which one is farthest from the hole. The referee looks the balls over and Indicates the ball farthest from the pin. A player may question a referee's judgment and ask for a measurement. PHIL AITKEN has some tales from the national amateur which would have kept Bluebird intrigued for 2,001 nights If the old boy had been a golfer. How many Lincoln golfers know that in a national championship, an out Of bounds shot not only costs distance but also a stroke? And there were some nine out of bounds on the Alderwood course in Portland. The players who reach the match play rounds in the national amateur are assigned a "body guard." Mia duty Is to bore holes thru the gallery, and to keep the filberts who are always full of questions from crowding the players. Phil served as "body guard" for Johnny Goodman when the latter beat Don Moe. Altken said this match was considered as the championship battle around Portland as it was felt that the survivor would win the title. Harry Givan is the player to watch, in Aitken's opinion. And the fellow who chalked up the yardage on the Alderwood course : must have been a parsimonious aouL There was one hole, listed as a 168 yarder, that was requir ing full No. 2 and No. 3 Irons. There were two holes listed at 449 yards (which kept them par 4 1 which required two big woods and then the players were usually short. On one of these, there had been but one birdie made on it up till last Thursday night when Phil left Portland. There were count less 6's, flocks of 8's and some 10 s. Phil says for plain and fancy anguish he has never seen the equal of that displayed by some of the younger players who either failed to qualify or were beaten in early rounds. EDDIE JUNGBLUTH gives Bernard Gradwohl credit for being the only fisherman who ever kept his promise. ...When Grad wohl left for a trip to Canada he promised Eddie a fish provided he caught any. . .He did and Eddie got a 16 pound muskle. . .And was it choice eating!. . .Wow!. . .Wayne "Ace" Parker, built along the lines of Bill Pfeiff, is another Lincoln high guard who will bear watch ing... Lawrence J. Teply, new coach at Havelock, isn't sure but that the Engineers are being built up for a beautiful letdown. . ."Sure," he says, "we've got the makings of a fine team, but we're attempt ing the stiff est schedule in the his' tory of the school". ..On the slate are Creighton Prep, York, Crete, Omaha Benson, Schuyler, Jackson, Bethany and College View. . . Official bulletin from the national minor league office shows Pug Griffin reinstated in baseball after a suspension, but Pug hasn't had official notification and until he gets it he isn't making any futuie plans along baseball lines. . Starting gates at the state fair races have been a great aid in getting the fields away. . Last year too much time was wasted at the post , . . Fred Decker steps out with a sweeping denial in which he says that Falstaff couldn't have had a bid to the state Softball meet, whether they came thru the district tournament or not and that Omaha will have but four teams in the state championship, as against three for Lincoln. .. .Too much loose talk, he claimed, with no facts backing it up...

The deadliest aerial bombardment of the annual All Star football series is expected Wednesday night when the hus tling young collegians elected by the nation's fans dig in agairftt the world champion Green Bay Packers under Soldier Field flood light. The light, fast All Stars have the forward passing terrors of three separate leagues in Slingin' Sammy Baugh of Texas Christian, Ray Buivid of Marquette and Indiana's Vernon Huffman, voted the Big Ten's most valuable player last season.. :. . Against these three marksmen, the heavier Packers will stake their famed Arnold Herber and Don Hutson, a will-o'-the wisp combination which baffled every pass defense in the National league last year. Attendance records for the spec tacle will likely be broken. The crowd may run as high as 85,000. . - Two Tie Games. : The Packers had to be given whatever edge there was.

They have trained better than any other league repre sentative and in addition had a weight advantage. Favoring the All Stars were their superior speed and youth. With Baugh flicking his accurate passes and blockers like Big Sam Francis of Nebraska running interference for open field stars like Bobby LaRue of Pittsburgh, this team has more potential scoring power than the others. The All Stars probably will center their attack on Baugh. He will run the team, do the passing and kicking as long as he's in the game. The Starting Backs. In the starting backfield will be Huffman, LaRue, Francis and John Drake Of Purdue. Baugh will replace LaRue, and Eddie Jan-kowski of Wisconsin may go in for Francis whose great punting is needed in the second backfield. Starting linemen will be Gaynell Tinsley, Louisiana State, and Merle Wendt, Ohio State, ends; Averell Daniell, Pittsburgh, and Ed Wid-seth, Minnesota, tackles: Steve Reid, Northwestern, and Max Starcevich, guards; and Earl "Buda" Svendsen, Minnesota's center who will play opposite his brother, Packer George Svendsen. If Herber and Hutson start, as Coach E. L. "Curly" Lambeau indicated Tuesday night, Green Bay will take to the air at once. He may, however, elect to start his running backs, Joe Laws, Bob Monnett.

VETERAN ELEVEN ON Coach Teply Building Around Veterans for 1937 Grid Campaign. Building a -veteran team around Kenneth Carpenter, and Ralph I Harmon, backs and Orrie Cole, tackle, is the pleasant task confronting Lawrence J. Teply, new Havelock high coach. There Is some question as to whether Babe I Dormer will be back In school this faU which puts a slight blight on the situation. Carpenter, Harmon and Cole are all fast, the latter two finishing one-two in the last Greater Lincoln lesgue track meet in the 220 yard dash while Carpenter won the low hurdles In the same meet Kenneth McClure, a sophomore, is also figured as a regular for the backfield. In the line, Teply will have Dale Greenwade, four year guard; Chester Rung, center; Francis Aylward, and Vincent Bluhm, tackles. These latter three were subs last year but lettered. Others figured on include Bill McCabe, end; Charles McNurlln, Vivian Bullock and Harris Jones, backs; Lloyd Feerhusen, ceiiter. There were who drew equip ment. Teply figures on carrying 23 on his first squad. MTATB IXttilk. . w I art. i pet Boo Fe.l!a 3T 15 .712; Fall-bury 23 18 .451 Mttcftell 94 21 .118 Beatrice 24 30.444 Norfolk - 14 28 .462i G.

Lack of reserve strength, and only ten of last year's 28 letter-men returning, shatters all hope of Jackson high again winning the Greater Lincoln league in the opinion of Coach Merritt Robson. Football equipment was issued to 30, Tuesday. The strength of last year's regulars gave Robson the chance to letter the large group of players, but this year's outlook is poor for both regular and reserve strength, he said. Darrel Gunn, and Bugs Bowmas-ter are the only two backfield let-termen to return. Robson has not yet decided who the other two regular-backs will be, but Jim Owens who played on the second team last year may be one. The best in the line will be a tackle, Bill Ruyle. Men have not yet been found who will definitely hold the other positions in the line, but there is a possibility of Bob Anderson at guard, and Bob Gary, center. More definite decisions will be made after a few days practice with the remaining lettermen. Robson predicts that Havelock easily will win the Greater Lincoln title, and that College View will also be close to the top at the end of the season. y First Play in Foursomes at Broadview; Friday at Country Club.

(UP): Shades of another home run swatting Babe Ruth are seen In Roundhouse Rudy York, Detroit Tiger rookie catcher, whose slugging during the month of August knocked one of the Bambino's famous records into a cocked hat. The 24 year old Cherokee Indian started tongues wagging around the big leagues early last month by banging out home runs like a repeating cannon. Rudy crowned his first season In the majors Tuesday by poling two circuit blows against the Washing' ton Senators, giving him a total of 18 for the month of August and a total of 30 for the season. This mark is one better than the best single month of circuit hitting ever enjoyed by Babe Ruth. The Babe's record of 17 In a month was accomplished in September of 1927, the same year he achieved his season's record of 60. May Better The Ban. York's ability to punish horse' hide, as demonstrated last month, caused many experts to believe York may become as great if not greater than the Babe at his best "He approaches a ball better than Ruth," Manager Mickey Cochrane said. "And the fact that he's a catcher instead of an out fielder will give him more crowd color." The Tiger pilot, comparing the virtures ot both York and Kuth, said that where the Babe had to have the pitches in a certain zone before he swung at them, Rudy has learned to smack anything. He starts his swing later but fully as wen-umea as Kutn. "York awaits unbelievably long Derore swinging," Cochrane said "He Isn't a Hornsby who stands far back in the batting box. Rudy just crowas up there, using snapping wrist motion to start a swing packed with plenty of home runs. York used to be a sucker for a high, fast ball Inside; that's why he didn't look so good at the start of the season. . But he's beginning to make some of those pitchers look pretty bad. And aon't forget this Is just his first big league season;. he's Just learn ing." Heilemann Sizes Him Up. Harry Heilemann, former De troit Tiger outfielder and Ameri can league batting champion, believes the 200-pound Indian has the 'best hitting qualities of a Ruth, a Hornsby, a Ty Cobb and a Nap La Joie all wrapped up In one. "Rudy can hit 'em to anv field Heilemann commented. "He's got a oeauutui stance at the plate, has learned how to nunlsh anv an. livery that's in there, supplies lots of power and follows thru well. I told Mickey I thought York has the batting equipment, the build ana me confidence to become new batting sensation." In compiling hiS' record. York crowded 18 homers Into 27 davs. The Babe's best month brought iuin xi in it aays. HARDY'S, WOODMEN VIE IN CITY LEAGUE CHASE Hardy'i and Woodmen continue their duel for the City league base ball lead again Wednesday night at Landis field, and the game will nave a great bearing on the sec ond half title. Hardy's can tie for the lead with a victory, while a Woodmen verdict would stretch their lesd to a game and a half. O'Shea-Rorers and Woodmen Juniors, leading Legion Junior baseball teams will meet at 7 p. m In a curtain raiser to the 8:15 league skirmish. REDS BUY ENGLISH.

"l .r, v.- :--.r- r-A M'LEMORE Tears for Schmeling? Dry Those Eyes! BY HENRY M'LEMORE. NEW YORK. (Copyright 1937 UP). For the life of me I cant understand the amazement, sur prise, and indignation that Is now rampant over tne retusai oi neavy- weight champion Joe Louis to give Herr Max Schmeling oi tiermany a crack at the title. I think it would be a fme thing if he did, being as the uerman is the only man with any right hatsoever to challenge lor tne roal purple or the imperial camel's hair or whatever it is that heavyweight champion's wear. But what sane man ever expected Louis to sign with Schmeling until he positively was forced to do o, by the refusal of the paying customers to watch mm wiui any one else? On Tuesday, when Promoter Mike Jacobs handed Schmeling another six months free ride on the merry-go-round with the an nouncement that the cnampions next opponent would be deter mined by a neavyweigm tournament, indignation was rifo on Queer street, that being another name for Cauliflower alley. Temperatures were run, and such words as sportsmanship, fair play, and ethics were tossed around with abandon. Now, when in the name of high heaven, did any right thinking citizen begin associating such words with boxing? Boxing may not be the most underhanded ot sports, but It'll run one-two-three with any you can name. Since Jim Figg's day to this boxing has been a business of hustlers, for hustlers, and by hustlers. Men have gone Into It for their health, but they never lasted long or got very far. The Coat of Arms. Boxing's coat of arms is the in terlocked double cross, rampant on a field of broken promises. It Is a business of haggle ' and wrangle, wiggle In and wiggle out. Louis isn't the first champion to duck, sidestep, and dodge an out and out Issue. He's just another in a long line, so I can't see the surprise. Boxing being what it is, the managers of the Detroit boy are being smart. They've got a million dollar meal ticket, and can't see the sense In subjecting him to a fight with a man who, in the opinion of nearly all the critics. can lick him five days a week and twice on Sunday. Does the background of either Julian Black or John Roxborough indicate that they are the type to sacrifice a fortune on the altar of sports manshin ? 'Would Joe Gould have done it? Billy Gibson? Doc Kearns? Joe Jacobs? - . You can bet your sweet and merry they wouldn't. Watch Your Sympathy. And before you waste too much sympathy on Schmeling don't for get that his treatment of Joe Jacobs, the man who lifted him from nowhere to riches and fame, has not been all sweetness and light To come right out and say so, Schmeling has all but given Jacobs a kick in the pants now that he isn t needed any more. Joe still is technically known as the Germanjs "American repre sentadve" but the title is as hoi low as a hungry drum. And be fore he booted vJacobs around Herr Schmeling took a few boots at one Bulow, unless my memory is all wrong. It was Bulow, I believe, who first saw his possibilities and, in order to bring him to America and a chance, pawned personal possessions for steamship tickets. No, brethern and sistern, don't get upset by boxing's didoes. it nas more angles than a pagoda, and is strictly a business of the survival of the ur-fittest. CAMPBELL'S 126 M. P. H. NEW SPEEDBOAT RECORD LOCARNO, Switzerland. (UP) Sir Malcolm Campbell, who has spont a lifetime in the conquest of speed, claimed a new world's speedboat record when he sent his new mystery Bluebird racer twice over a measured nautical mile for an average time of 126.249 miles an hour. Sir Malcolm was timed in 124.920 miles an hour for the first run and returned over the course in 127.578 for an average of 126.249 a new record. The former record of 124.86 mile an hour was set by the American speedster, Gar Wood, in his Miss America X on the St. Clair river on Sept. 20, 1932. Facts about Sir Malcolm's new Bluebird named for his famous racing cars so far have not been revealed. Already the automobile speed king with his 301.13 miles an hour made on the salt flats at Bonneville, Utah, on Sept. 3. 1935 Sir Malcolm turned to motorboat racing. For months he planned and helped build his new racer in preparing for the assault on Wood's record.
