IM6 tiers tn trial v.. - -, a-- Kjj rah)(iaske oat OiiSftes For DcShong to Test Three BY NORRIS ANDERSON WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. Ringmaster Jimmy DeShong of the Lincoln A's waved the wand Saturday and tabbed Johnny Kucab, Vlnce Gohl and Ewen Bryden to pitch bere Sunday against F ayetteville, N.C. of the Class B Carolina league. Fayetteville, whicn like Lincoln is owned outright . by the Philadelphia Athletics, is managed by Mule Haas, the A's old major league star. The game will be the second portion of a doubleheader at Wright Field. The first match pits the Philadelphia A's reserve nine against Toronto of the International league. DESHONG said he would stick with the same lineup that opened against Miami Beach Thursday night. That includes (in batting order: Bobby Gardner, third base; Eddie Boehm, first base; George Moskovfch, second base; Frank Neidowicz, right-field; Gene Armbruster, center-field; Joe Pancoe, leftfield; Elton Jackson, shortstop, and Bill Shantz, catcher. Jackson Is being borrowed from Savannah and Boehm, an outfielder. Is seeing temporary first base duty until Lincoln is given more Infield help. DeShong has been anxious to try Kucab and Gohl, both highly regarded by Athletic Farm Club Director Arthur Ehlers. Kucab, 23 years old and 6-2, had a 21-7 record last summer for Youngstown, O., of the Class C Mid-Atlantic league. Left-hander Gohl, also 23 and 6-2, posted a fancy 21-4 mark with Tarboro, N.C. of the Class D Coastal Plains league. Gohl had 181 strikeouts and wound up with a remarkable 1.27 earned-run average. DESHONG concentrated again Saturday on a long batting drill. He was openly dissatisfied with the lack of punch shown against Miami Beach when the A's col- j lected only three hits in nine Innings. Philadelphia is expected to come thru with more infield help "later this week." DeShong said Lincoln's only other scheduled exhibition Is against Portsmouth, Va., of the Class B Piedmont leaeue. That game is set for Hollywood, Fla., April 9. FIVE MORE teams checked mto camp Saturday. They were Youngstown; Kewanee, 111., of the Class C Central association: Red Springs. N. C, of the Class D Tobacco State league; Lexington, N. C. of the Class D Carolina State Jeague and Welch, W. Va., of the Class D Appalachian league. Red Springs and Lexington are owned outrltht by the parent A's. The other three have workinir agreements. Two of the A's affiliates will leave camp this weekend. Savannah heads homeward Sunday to prep for its Sally league opener, April 12. West Palm Beach moves from the International Airport grounds into the start of Florida International league play Monday. i ll 1 r i BEST SPOT These fishermen were among the few getting their limit at the Louisville state recreation grounds Saturday, as Nebraska's trout season opened. The best catches taken from Louisville waters came from near these "reefs." Experienced anglers re- SECTION B LINCOLN, NEBRASKA APRIL 2, 1950 ported good luck toward the tips of these projections as groups of newly-stocked rainbow and brown trout lurked in the warm, shallow water. (Staff Photo.) First-Bay Fishing Report?0? Glfers Gives Optimistic 'Preview Nebraska's 1950 trout season is well underway and the first-day picture presents good cause for optimism among the state fishing fraternity. Only one of the five wardens who reported fishing conditions to the state game commission told of foul weather. In some localities fishermen were getting their limit and ail eastern waters were crowded. LEON CUNNINGHAM, who patrols the Niobrara river near Marsland, reported fishing "Just fair" in his vicinity. Some 200 anglers had tried their luck in the Niobrara before noon but none had their limi'. The river is up near Mars-land, Cunningham reports, and ' a high wind during the afternoon hours sent many anglers home early. Warden Ahearn, who oversees the Fremont lakes says the fish are not biting too quickly but some patient anglers hooked their limits. Crowds are the Fremont warden's greatest concern. More than 3,000 people visited the Fremont lakes during opening day. THE ONLY SPLOTCH on the general fishing picture is at Ainsworth. Jack Strain, warden on Plum and Pine creeks, reports snow' and cold in his area. He counted only 150 on his rounds and rated fishing "poor." "Everybody In the country Is fishing.' So says Warden George Weldman of Scotts Bluff county. Fishermen are getting their limits on Stuek-enhole creek, Ttrb spring, Wild Horse creek. Red Willow creek, and Two Sheep creek. Soon after midnight Saturday, nine fishermen dropped lines on Nine-Mile creek in Weidman's territory. All caught their limit in 15 minutes. Leroy Lever had the best catches with three, four, and five pound rainbow trout. Fishing pressure at Lake Mc-Conaughy, near Ogallala, is comparatively light, reports Loren Bunney. Lewis Jehorek, Ogallala, pulled out a four and one-half pound rainbow there, and Ed Novak of Crete landed a three-pounder. Weather at Mc-Conaughy was described as clear and Quiet. Olympia Co?is Paiimonok'Cap NEW YORK. (fP). Olympia, the odds-on favorite, galloped to an easy victory Saturday in the $25,000 added Paumonok handicap at Jamaica before a crowd of 50,518 customers second largest opening day in the track's history. It was a return to a favorite track for Olympia, Fred W. Hooper's Kentucky Derby favorite of last year. Jockey Eddie Arcaro shot the bay four-year-old colt in front shortly after start of the six-furlong event, and he rolled to the wire with plenty to spare. Addison Stable's Arise was second, and Woolford Farms Delegate third in the field of 15. The winner was timed in 1:10 45 and returned $6.60, $460 and $3.10. Jamaica's record opening day crowd was 56,-115 in 1946. h - - . .u. I . Millers Take Second Verdict From -Knights MINNEAPOLIS. (IP). Minneapolis moved ahead in the playoff for the U.S. hockey league championship Saturday night by giv-ings Omaha's youthful Knights their second straight pasting, 5-1. The series now stands 2-1 with the Millers who finished in second place needing only one more victory to take the title. IT WAS a rip-snorting hockey game from the first face-off. The Millers got away to a two-goal lead in the opening period and never were headed, outplaying the Knights both in the manner of handling the puck and bumping the opposition around. The second period was scoreless. Omaha did not score until 1:10 of the third period when Johnny Wilson netted the puck. That was the signal for the Millers to turn on the heat and they cracked in three more tallies. Walter Hergesheimer got two Vials for the Millers as 16 pen-iltifs wore hmded out. Fritz Fraser of the Millers got a misconduct along with a pair of minors while Marcel Pronovost got a major along with Glenn Son-mor for fighting. Iowa Stale Nine Bops Tutors, 10-3 AMES. Ia. (JP).

Flan io Form Third Major me Ira Sens !i Rumored Masters Meet Next for Top Pro Linksmen AUGUSTA, Ga. (JP). Golfs experts start practicing Sunday for the famed Masters tournament the meet flattering to a contestant's prestige but usually hard on his score, Sam Snead, the favorite again, won the Masters last year with a four-round total of 282 for the 6,750-yard layout Compare that with his 265 in San Antonio, 270 at Phoenix, Ariz., and 269 at Greensboro, N.C, this year and you get the idea. AN EVEN 100 invitations to golfs top amateurs and professionals went out for the tourney which starts Thursday. Should Snead top the field he will perform an unprecedented feat for the Masters. No golfer has ever won twice In succession. Jimmy Demaret, Horton Smith and Byron Nelson, however, managed to win twice. Demaret may be a big stumbling block in Sncad's path this year. The road is also strewn with such rocks as Pen Hogan, Cary Middlecoff, Johnny Palmer and Lloyd Mangrum. Ak-Sar-Ben Race Track Re-finished OMAHA. (JP). The Ak-Sar-Ben race track running surface has been completely refinished for the annual race meeting there beginning May 23. Last year, a few spots were found where clay sub-soil had worked thru. The areas around the spots were slippery when the track was wet. The work on the track surface is one of several measures to improve the track. Siiar Cape Meet Quintets Picked NEW ORLEANS. (IP). Participants in the 1950 Sugar Bowl Basketball tournament were named Saturday: Bradley university. University of Kentucky, St. Louis university and Syracuse university. Of the four named ny the ;sew Form Own Organization WILMINGTON, N. C. (UP). The nation's top tournament golfers, dissatisfied ' with P.G Jl. control of the tournament circuits, set up their own organization Saturday. The tournament pros said they hoped to stay within the P.G.A., but their setup probably would call for a revision of the P.G.A. constitution. There are 3,000 members of the P.G.A. but only 300 play regular tournament golf. George Schneiter, chairman of the P.G.A. tournament bureau, heads the new organization which listed its board members as Jimmy Demaret, Bob Hamilton, Clayton Heafner, Ben Hogan, Lawson Little, Lloyd Mangrum, Cary Middlecoff, Toney Penna, Sam Snead and Jimmy Thomson. , THAT GROUP. Including many of the best tournament pros in the world, virtually assured the rebels of winning their way with the P.G.A. at a meeting in Chicago Monday. Schneiter's statement said, in part: "The players are aware that the P.G.A. has been responsible for the popularity of the tournaments and the high sun aura Dy wnicn tney are conducted and they have no Intention of relinquishing their membership or to break away from the association. They simply want to solidify themselves as s players' division and as such would be In position to devote the necessary time to legislate and execute their own business (tournament golf). "There's no doubt that this plan can be worked within the P.G.A. btit it became apparent that the players must organize in order to get favorable consideration of their plan when presented to the P.G.A. "Briefly, the plan calls for the players to elect a board of governors annually who would plan and execute all phases of the tournament program including the negotiating and signing of agreements as well as controlling the tournament bureau funds. SnioovIiWesvFive Pulls Away to Hip das? Stars, 66-59 NEW YORK. (JP). A smoother working West All-Star team, sparked by players from the Big Ten, Missouri Valley and Pacific Coast, whipped the East All-Stars, 66 to 59, before 16,000 at Madison Square Garden Saturday night in the fifth annual basketball All-Star game for the benefit of the Herald-Tribune fresh air fund. With Dick Schnittker, of Ohio State; Paul Unruh of Bradley; George Yardley of Stanford; and George Stanich of UCLA alternating in sinking baskets, the west pulled away in the last 10 minutes to win handily. SCHNITTKER, later selected as the most valuable player in the game, hit for 14 points. Unruh, with his left handed jump shot, got 12. Stanich with nine and Yardley with eight added 17 points between them, mostly in the second half. Charley Share of Bowling Arizona Rips 2 NL Scouts TUCSON, Ariz. (!P). The University of Arizona Saturday protested actions of scouts of two National league baseball clubs. The protests were contained in letters sent to Presidents Horace G. Stoneham of the New York Giants and Frank E. McKinney of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The letters were sent by Arizona Coach Frank Sancet. Sancet wrote to Stoneham that the Giant scout, Mickey Shader, slipped Into town and "contacted several of our players, all of whom are members of our varsity baseball team, trying to persuade them to leave school." In his letter to McKinney, Sancet says Scout Tom Downey made his presence known to the coach but before he left town propositioned one of their better ball players to leave school immediately. NEW YORK. (INS). A multi-million dollar plan to install a new and probably outlaw major baseball league in the mushrooming population centers of Texas and the Pacific coast was reported Saturday. Owners of existing organized teams in the affected areas are for the most part in favor of the new plan if it is practical. According to Information received by International News Service, a fabulous rash of movie and oil money, ready to go so far as to raid the major leajrnea for talent, is behind the idea to form league of at least six cities. The six are San Francico, Oakland. Los Angeles, Hollywood, Dallas and Houston. AT LEAST TWO of these franchises San Francisco and Oakland would, in terms of the existing blueprint, be the same organizations whirh now do business as the San Franci'co and Oakland teams of the Pacific Coast league, a Triple-A minor league. Whether the other four Los Angeles and Hollywood of the PCL and Dallas and Houston of the Class-A Texas league jump to the new circuit, or whether completely new franchises are to be built in those territories, is not yet known. THE ENTIRE IDEA, which according to a source close to the project has reached an advanced stage of planning, is based on the desire of moneyed interests to bring big league baseball to cities now big enough to support it The major leagues will not move west under their present setup because of the stringent terrltorial-richts laws of organised baseball. The new league, of coarse, would flaunt these territorial rights, but organised ball Is not let ally constructed to stop soch a move so Ions as the new league's money holds oat. Seattle and strange as It sounds Baltimore have been discussed as possible points in case the league were to be an eight-team circuit. The plan favors eight teams. The first two club owners to be reached in connection with these reports were necessarily guarded in their comments, but they showed enthusiasm that was almost violent in discussing the idea. Said Paul Fagan, who recently purchased the controlling interest in the San Francisco Seals: "Maybe the idea is a solution to California and Texas baseball problems . . . California is the second larrest state In the country, according to census estimates, and It certainly needs the type of baseball commensurate with Its siie." Clarence Laws, owner of the Oakland club, said: "It is worth looking into, and I intend to do so. "I have always been an advocate of a better brand of baseball on the coast. A new league, embracing the metropolitan Texas and California cities as well as several others elsewhere of major league size is the best solution I've heard yet."

Mueller Scores TvoTDs BY DICK BECKER. "We looked good for about four minutes, then we got tired." That was the comment of Ne braska Football Coach Bill Glassford after watching his Reds beat the Whites, 190, at Memorial Stadium Saturday afternoon. GLASSFORD, who viewed the game from the press box along witn fits varsity staff of Marv Franklin, Ralph Fife and Bob Davis, was referring to the first time the Reds got the ball. There were no kickoffs and the Reds started on their own 35. In six plays they had scored. Bill Mueller made 33 yards on 'the first play, a quick opener over left tackle. Ron Clark made a yard before Nick Adducl crashed for ten more for a first down on the White 21. Mueller swept left end to the eight. Adduci powered to the six then dove over for the score. Fran Nagle kicked the extra point. OOO AFTER that it wasn't so easy for the Reds. They were held scoreless in the second quarter. A Nagle pass to Frank Simon late in the first quarter went all the way, consuming 46 yards, but a penalty called it back. Early In the third period the Reds took a White punt on their own 39. Mueller, Clark and Adducl carried to the White 44. Mueller produced the top play of the scrimmage at that point, breaking loose over left tackle, reversing his field to score. Nagle missed the placement. The last score also came In the third period. It was Mueller again. Three passes by Nagle, two to Rich Novak and one to Adduci, along with runs by Clark and Mueller took the ball to the White 39. Mueller broke loose over left tackle and scored standing up. Nagle missed the conversion. 0 THAT was the scoring. The Whites made several threats but were stopped most of the time by fumbles or Intercepted passes. White support came ia the front line from Tackle Dick Goeglein, Guard Art Bauer and End George Prochaska. The two White quarterbacks. Buster Lehman and Dick Hea-cox, did some food to las; but the receivers were not so hoi Running by Bob Reynolds, Bill Winrender and Bob Sehrelnor helped. Red power was furnished by a strong end crew of Simon, Dick Regier, Bob Manion and Novak. Tackle Bob Mullen and Guard Don Strashelm furnished a mid dle "Mutt and Jeff combination. Nagle's passing was sharp as always but again the catchers were weak. Adduci, Mueller and Clayton Curtis supplied the eround punch. Four men were Injured. Rcgler re-Injured his shoulder. Bob Schrelner banged an old ankle Injury. Jack Ladds hurt his knee and Novak had his foot stepped on. It was the final Intrasquad game of the spring session. The climax of the six-week spring training session comes next Saturday in tue Alumni-Varsity tilt. The summary: BEOS. F.Nri6 Simon. Regter, Uanloa. Mtrvak, Mullen, Dink late. Krrvnk.
