THIRTEEN Hopes of Cubs to Put On Repeater Hit Staggering Bloiv THE LINCOLN STAR MONDAY, APRIL 28, 1930. k Absence of Rajah and BellTakesHeavy Toll At Start Flag Pursuit CHICAGO, April .28 (AP) The first two weeks hardly can be taken seriously in a major league baseball campaign, but this year they have definitely established the fact that Jo McCarthy's Cubs will have to recover quickly and do some great hustling if they are to repeat their National league championship. Herosby and BelL Injuries have Jlnxed the team from the atart and the end la suit tar from being tn sight. Rogers Hornsby la still lame from the spur growth on his right heel and his batting punch may be missing from the team for a month and possibly the rest of the season, despite the cheerful report of examining physicians. ; Lester Bell, a big Cub Investment In the attempt to plug up the weak third base post, still is suffering from a lame arm and he, too, may not get in any more games than the "Rajah." Added to that, the pitching staff is far from ready and the big flock of promising rookies, obtained over winter to bol-. ster the pltchlngstaff , lsnot so promising now. In Red In League Ledger. Added to all these "bearish" developments has been that factor known as the "breaks in the weather." Of all the teams in the National league, the Cubs need stalling time. Yet they are the only ones In the circuit to be denied it. They have played every day since the season opened and today rest on the red side of the ledger with six won and seven lost. Even Manager McCarthy is dubious about Hornsby's quick return to the lineup. In the few times the "Rajah" has been used, as a ptnch-hltter his limp has' been very noticeable. With his usual optimism, he advises he will be back "very soon" and that he is almost ready, but day after day he remains on the bench, with the Cubs starving for that extra punch he ,wielded last season when a run or two meant the difference between de- feat and victory.---'"-- ) Operation Likely. Another operation on the heel would not surprise any one familiar with his ailment. An other operation would mean his definite absence for two months and probably McCarthy's fond hopes of another championship. Peculiarly enough, the world series skirmish with the Athletics seems to have left its imprint on the team. All last season, the Cubs were deadly against southpaw pitch- ers. Leity urove 01 uic rtnncuw i stopped that habit and now trie 1 Cubs do not appear able to win I lrom left-handers. I Bruins StIU Flghtlnr. A But Manager McCarthy and his It om ftirhtinc and take their fcad start philosophically. "It looks like we are getting all the bad breaks now," said Marse Joe "But a bad start usually means a great finish. Anyway, seven defeats In 13 starts against teams like St Louis, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh Isn't so bad, considering our condition. My pitchers aren't quite ready yet, but we shouldn't worry too much. We have lost several games by bad breaks, too."

BY CHESTER HORTON. "Golf 's Greatest Teacher." Argue as you will, a good golf ?ame begins with the drive. Maybe a good one doesn't always follow that rule, but at least a pleasu r e f u 1 game begins with a long, arrowy tee shot. Certainly the average player would rather have a good consistent drive than any ' other one thing; at pears to be the substance of their ambition when they come to me. The golfer, too, does well, I think to work hard on his drive. The driving swing is a bit harder to master than any other swing. Part of this is due to the fact that, the club being longer, the swing must be a little slower. Then, too, the player's attention Is drawn more forcibly toward the objective When he is driving, which takes attention more persistently away from the ball than is the case with iron shots. One seeking to better his drive should take note of those two factors, and be always on the alert to conquer them.. Year hana. arms and ahaatdera shanli lea, a In anlsen threusheat your golf swing.

M'GRAWS GIANTS STILL UNBEATEN Muggsy's Ball Club Only Outfit In Majors Not Defeated To Date. John McOraw and his New York Giants once more are starting out to upset the baseball dope. The Giants suffered severely from bad spring training weather and seemed due for a lot of early beatings, whereupon they stepped to the front by winning seven successive games and now are the only undefeated team in either major league. The Giants have shown everything a club needs to win a pennant. The first three games were close, but effective pitching and fine fielding gave them the edge. Then they started hitting and still retained the other points of advantage. Four Giant pitchers have games, while the other three would gone the full distance in the seven easily have lasted. Robins Knocked Over The Brooklyn Robins became the seventh victims of the Giants yesterday as the New Yorkers hit the deliveries of Bill Clark and Johnny Morrison for 14 solid blows, which produced a 10 to 4 score. Andy Reese added the final touch to the triumph by hitting a home run with the bases full in the ninth inning. Fred.Pltzsimmons was effective, except when Wright and Herman got to him for homers. The Pittsburgh Pirates, chief threat to Giant supremacy in the National league, continued their brilliant progress by defeating the champion Chicago Cubs, 9 to S, for their seventh straight victory. Pittsburgh, so far, has lost but one game of nine. . Pirates Pole Plenty Hits The Pirates hit Guy Bush and his four successors yesterday for 17 hits that were good for 27. bases, while French and Swetonlc kept a dozen Cub hits tffectively scattered. The Boston Braves likewise broke out as heavy hitters. Burleigh Orimes made his debut as a Hub pitcher and the Braves made 17 solid clouts good for a 13 to 4 victory over Philadelphia. Grimes received great support from his mates at bat and'iri the field and earned it by limiting the Phillies to nine hits. The St. Louis Cardinals used their blows effectively, combining them with seven walks, to beat Cincinnati, 10 to 5. Senators Still Rampaging Washington's surprising Senators continued to strengthen their hold on the top rung of the American league ladder by defeating the world champion Philadelphia Athletics for the third time in succession, 11 to 6. The champions never were in the running after the first Inning as the Senators drove wai-berg from the mound and continued hitting against Ehmke. The Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Browns produced some surprising results In a hard-fought battle that went to Chicago by a 2 to 1 score. A record, which had stood for 39 years without being seriously threatened, was equalled m this game when Clancy, White Sox first baseman, went through nine Innings without a putout or an assist. Tigers Smash Losing Streak The Detroit Tigers broke a losing streak of seven games' duration by hammering Wes Ferrell of Cleveland for five runs in the first inning and taking the last game of the series from the Indians, 7 to 1. Nineteen hits by the Boston Red Sox proved better than Babe Ruth's second home run of the year, although the homer came with two on base in the ninth inning, and the Sox gained an 8 to 7 victory over the New York Yankees.

He plans to go to Des Moines next Friday to make a personal Inspection of the working of the system installed by the Western league club there. "So many people are unable to attend In the afternoon, except on Sundays and holidays," Well said, "that I am much Interested In the experiment.

Although none of the Yellow and Brown tracksters were able to finish in the money at the Drake carnival, the entry list of the Dakota fest does not sport as mftny top-notch performers and the Dowmen will stand a much better chance. "Ren" Dow, track mentor for the Methodists, plans to take two relay quartets and three or four special eventers to Sioux Falls. The first-string group probably will be the same outfit which ran at Drake Killlnger, state quarter mile champion: Briggs, sprinter and noag ana u smitn, quartermuers. Selection of the second bunch will depend on tryouts to be held the first of the week. Wesleyan-Cotner Meet. It was originally planned that the Wesleyan crew, composed of the Methodist track aspirants not included in the Dakota entry, should take on the Cotner Bull dogs in a dual meet in the Wesleyan bowl Saturday. Borgaard, who holds the Cotner reins, found it impossible to take part in the meet if it was to be staged according to the schedule, hence arrangements are being tentatively made for the meet to be moved up to Tuesday afternoon. Tennis and golf representatives under the Wesleyan colors will engage in two out-of-town matches this week, going to Grand Island Tuesday and meeting Midland at Fremont the following Thursday. Due to the excessive rainfall last wek, the Cotner-Doane tennis and eolf matches fell through, but will be plaved at a later date. However, the Doane teams will Invade Bulldog playgrounds as per sched ule Tuesday afternoon. Players' Stance Just Golf Dance WHAT8 The matter With ITS 4NOT Teacher MY.T&Kce? Tb SHIFT MY WAN TING WEIGHT, its A Dancing CORRCCTLY MASTER.'.' BY Ah DEMAREE. (Former Pitcher New York Giant) IT may be merely the effect of this Jazz age that there seems nowadays to be a. lot of golfers with most turbulent ttances players who shift uneasily on their feet all the time they are addressing the ball and who qualify for the admonition delivered by Alex Smith to such a duffer who had gone to him for a lesson: "It's no' a golf teacher, ye're wanting. It's a dancing master!" And then there Is Oene Sarazen's story of the small caddie of about nine polishing the clubs 01 nis employer with extra care. What are you shining 'era so nice for?" he was asked by another caddie. "I've been told to clean 'em extra good today," was the reply, "and when I've done 'em, I've got to break 'em across my knee and then I've got to chuck 'em in the river."

THUMBS DOWN ON Both DeForest and Tom Loughran Pick Sailor As the Winner. BY DAWS J WALSH. NEW YORK, April 25 They mav fling garlands of sauerkraut In the Herr Schmeling's honor when he arrives here this week to accept, in that typically broad-minded way of his. the quarter part of a million dollars and a chance at the heavyweight . championship on June 12, but it seems to be only fair to relate that the writer caught up with a couple of efmincnt authorities today who appeared to be on their way to the fiesta, bearing tributes of raspberries. The first of these was Jimmy De Forest, who trained Dempscy for the greatest fight he ever made and later did thing for and with Flrpu that carried an inherent chump lighter to a point where he was only one punch short of the championship. De Forest says the Herr Schmeling ought to be two to one to lose when the Teuton and Sharkey go In there for the title in June. Thomas Says Ditto. So does Tommy Loughran. for mer cnampion in me ciass Deiqw-Thomas is a very eminent authority on this point. Hequalifies for the role becauso he was the recipient some months ago of a clout upon the countenance by the aforesaid Sharkey, which promptly discontinued and abated him for the remainder ol a long evening. This circumstance gives Thomas a considerable advantage over Schmeling in viewing the merits of the situation. He already has been hit by Sharkey; Schmeling hasn't. But he will be, according to Thomas. .The ideas of this pair, by the way, are so far from conclusive that they don't even balance the Schmeling sentiment that crystallzed here early and now, some six weeks in advance of the fight. Is Just so boisterously insistent as ever. They don't see how the Herr Schmeling can go wrong, which brings up the mevitaDie duierence or opinion o necessary to the success of an enterprise. It is the essential something that distinguishes a mere prize fight from a million-dollar extravaganza. ; Just a One-Hand Fighter. However, I have overtaken no Schmeling exhorter who is as smart a man on the end of an opinion as is James De Forest. The latter doesn't prate of contrasting styles and all the other eyewash wltn which the boys are prone to amuse themselves. "He's a one-hand fighter and It's the wrong hand. Hia left means nothing. How is he going to win?" And how, inelegantly echoes Thomas Louahran; who arrives at the same conclusion with the use of different reasoning. Mr. Lougn-ran points to the fact that the Herr Schmeling has done no fighting ror a ful semlester and this, says he, is to be the abiding factor. Pays To Keep Buay. "I don't care who they ere, they can't stay away from the game a year and fight at their best," he added. "You must be right on top of the thing all the time to keep your fightirg edge. "I ought to know. I once studied elocution and, while I was at it, I couldn't lick my sparring partners." By the way, what does a man do after he is graduated and thus be-becomes a full-fledged elocutor? LAKE CITY WOMEN" BEST AT TEN-PINS LOUISVILLE. Kv.
