PETERSBURG, FLORIDA, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1941 PAGE NINE Dig Goals and Little Boats in Labor Day Races vn. :....s.g m tr , Wilhelm Yawl Wins Cruising Yacht Race By STAN WITWER Wanderer, a 32-foot yawl skip pered by Johnny Wilhelm, won the first annual Labor day cruis ing yacht race to Egmont key and return yesterday on corrected time, after a hectic duel with Captain A. . N. Manson's 40-foot yawl Shalimar. Shallmar, a veteran of fresh water racing in the Great Lakes nosed across the line one min ute and 45 seconds ahead of Wanderer but the Wilhelm yaw) used a time allowance of nine minutes to win on corrected time. Third place went to the cutter Suzanne, owned by ibson kine baueh of Tampa. The cutter Duchess, skippered by Wally Stovall of Tampa, was fourth. Other boats in the race were Mistress II, a schooner skippered by Dr. W. W. Jennings of St. Petersburg, the yawl Gosling, owned by Herman- Beatty of Tampa, and the cutter Jack, skiDDered by Captain Rowe of Sarasota. The latter : boat dropped out at the halfway mark. The start was made at 0:22 a.m ill light air with Shalimar first across the line followed In order by Mistress II. Wanderer, Su zanne. Duchess, Jack and Gosling, Wanderer, however, moved into contention early and forged ahead off Bayboro. At the half-way mark of the 33-mile race, southwest channel light, Wanderer was 10 minutes ahead of the fleet and Suzanne had moved into second place with Shalimar third. The race down the bay had been strickly a spinnaker race in light air. All the way back, the fleet worked to windward. Off Pinellas point the wind shifted from northwest to north and it was at this point that Shalimar, which had been gaining ' back much of its lost ground, passed Wanderer. A squall which lasted a full 20 minutes further complicated the sailing but Shalimar held its lead to the finish, although unable to make up the time allowed Wanderer. The winning boat was skippered by Wilhelm with Gidge Gandy, Wally Bishop and Paul Hurst as crew. The race, which required slightly less than six hours to , complete, proved so popular with tl.T- skippers that tentative plans were made to repeat it, perhaps on Armistice day as a highlight of the annual sailing and speedboat regatta scheduled then. West Palm Beach Cops Loop Title MIAMI (JT) The West Palm Beach Indians, who form a scrappy baseball aggregation that .never knows when it is licked, have succeeded Fort Lauderdale's Tarpons as champions of the Florida East Coast league.

Only 35 of an expected 40 play ers were on hand at yesterday morning's workout, but John Bar- bor, guard, reported in the aft ernoon to leave but four missing. The four were Earl Harrison and Robert Johnson, sophomore ends; Frank Buell, promising sopho more backfield prospect, and Carl Mitchell, senior end. More than a score of last year's squad were lost by Lieb. Eleven were lost by graduation and 12 to the draft, national defense jobs or other causes. . The Gator gridders were in high spirits and good physical condi tion for this stage ot the season. An early check by Trainer Sinky Scholze showed several of the Gators bigger and more rugged than last season. The squad on the opening day consisted of six ends, five tackles, nine iruards. three centers, four quarterbacks, only two left half backs, four right naiibacKS, ana three fullbacks. Both oDening day workouts were of the easy, basic variety. The gridders worked out in shorts and spent both sessions in general exercising, punting, passing and running plays from the Notre Dame formation. ... A skull practice was sandwicnea between the drills. Coach Lieb and assistants, ur-ville Dermody, Larry Mullins and Sam McAllister, have only 20 days in which to whip up a football team.

U.R) Bryan M. Grant of Atlanta wore down Francisco Segura, of Ecuador, yesterday to win a terrific five-set match that stole the show in the national singles tennis tournament. Favorites advanced with ease. Segura, as rugged as the Andes from whence he comes, gave a stirring exhibition of endurance and two-handed driving skill in the stadium at West Side Tennis club before Grant, 30-year-old veteran of Davis cup competition and innumerable tournaments, managed to win 6-4, 8-6, 4-6, 5-7, 6-2. Grant later said, "I was plenty lucky in that one." Segura had the usually sedate Forest Hills fans in the aisles with his attack, similar to that of Jack Bromwich, the double-fisted Australian. He was a strong crowd favorite but Grant drew a ringing round of applause for his comeback in the final set after Segura seemingly had him beaten down. The feature of the match was a point in the fourth set for which the two players volleyed a total of 32 shots before Segura passed Grant at baseline as the five-foot Georgian went sprawling in exhaustion. Grant is not seeded for the tournament but he will be a big obstacle for eighth-ranked Gard- nar Mulloy, Miami, in their third-round match unless the Segura battle took too much out of him. Bitsy could barely hobble off the field after the match. Mulloy passed his second-round test against Gerald Crowther, Her-mosa Beach, Cal, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-1. First-seeded Bobby Riggs, Clin ton, S. C, Defending Champion Don McNeill, Oklahoma City, seeded third, and Frank Kovacs, San Francisco, ranked second, moved along meanwhile against non-rated opposition. McNeill defeated Seymour Greenberg, Chicago, 6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, and Kovacs won from Victor Seixas, Philadelphia, 6-2, 6-4, 7-5 to go into the fourth round. Riggs won a second-round match from BARNEY GOOGLE Interrupted Peace! Registered 0. & Patent Office f 7 1 Parke Triumphs In West Coast Handicap Race Harvey Parke of the Big Bayou Yacht club, sailed his Cyanide to first place in the annual West Coast handicap race off municipal pier yesterday, defeating a large' fleet of boats representing west coast yacht clubs. Parke's Cyanide won the race last year and in different boats Parke had won the race twice before 1940 in its 13-year history. Yesterday's triumph was his fourth. He retired the Tampa Propeller club trophy last year, but put it back into competition this year, only to win first leg on it again himself. ; Another Big Bayou boat, Tom Boy, was sailed by Harry Shipley to second place. Fur- man Whittacre representing the Davis Island Yacht club, Tampa, placed third in Yankee Doodle. The race consisted of five laps around a triangular course off the pier, an approximate total distance of 15 miles. The fleet crossed the starting line at 9:43 a.m. and late finishers were still . on the water after sundown. . Frank J. Bowden, New York, 6-1, 6-3, 6-2. Kovacs, who hadn't done much clowning, got back In the groove when he engaged tn a cushion-tossing exchange with stadium fans after the last match of the day, "Wayne Sabin, rated sixth, had a narrow escape before getting past the top-seeded foreign entry, Ladislav Hecht, Czecho-Slovakia, 7-5,6-1,6-8,2-6,6-1. In the women's division, top-seeded Pauline Betz, Los Angeles won her second match, defeating pearl Harland, Santa Monica, Cal., 5-7, 6-4, 6-2. Second-ranked TIrs. Sarah Palfrey Cooke, New York, defeated the national girls' champion, Louise Brough, Beverly Hills, Cal., 4-6, 6-1, 6-1, in the second round. The tournament was marred yesterday by the death of Ben H. Dwiiht, 60-year-old president of the National Tennis Umpires association. He collapsed of a heart attack while watching a match and died before he could be taken to a hospital.

LOUIS The St. Louis Cardinals ran their latest winning streak Ao seven games and took a little firm er grip on first place in the National league by sweeping a pair from Pittsburgh yesterday, 5 to 3 and 6 to 3. A paid attendance of 34,812 the largest since Aug. 13, 1939 jammed Sportsman's park' to see the double victory and the great work of the Cardinals' rookie southpaws, Ernie White and Howard fonet. Each was shaky in the first in ning but settled down thereafter. White it his seventeenth victory against four defeats. Pollet, up from Houston of the Texas league less than two weeks, notched his third triumph against one set back. White tripled to drive in a run, Pollet singled and sent two scores over the plate. Jimmy Brown hit a home run In the first game, one of three safeties he collected In four times up and his Cardinal teammate, Johnny Hopp, rot a homer in the second. The Pirates used four singles, a wtld throw and an infield out to score twice in the first inning of the, second game which was called on account of darkness after Pittsburgh "jetted in the eighth. Those four safeties were two thirds of their hits. St. Louis went ahead in its half of the first when Johnny Mize'i triple scored Brown and Don Padgett and he continued on home as Vince lDi-Maggio threw wild from the outfield. The Pirates got to White for three hits coupled with a walk for three runs in '.'.ie first inning of the opener. Lee Handley walked, went to third on Frank Gustine's double and both scored when Bob Elliott smacked an other two-bagger. Elliott moved to third as Maurice Van Robays flied to Padget and scored on Elbie Fletcher's single. DiMag- gio fanned and Fletcher was doubled.at second. St. Louis tied it un In the third on a walk, an error by Gustine, an infield out which moved two men into scoring rosition, Walker Cooper's double and Padgett's single. There it Stuck until 'Ttrnurn'c third home run of the season in the sixth.

Texas UP Skipper Gilbert Gray of New Orleans, one of the first sailors on coastal waters, personally engineered the establishment of two records yesterday as he piloted the Southern Yacht club to victory in the Lipton regatta. , The championship went to Southern for the fourth straight time as Gray recorded his fifth consecutive victory a performance unmatched in the 22 years which have elapsed since the late Sir Thomas Lip-ton offered the handsome $5,000 cup to the Gulf Yachting association. ( When the four scheduled races' one of which Gray had won were over, the Southern club and the Buccaneer Yacht club of Mo bile, Ala., were deadlocked for the title with 36 points, necessitating a sail-off. Gray was picked to skipper the Southern sloop and Shaw Freeman, shipbuilding company em- ployey who brought his boat in third in the final race, was renominated to supervise his club's , bid. . Freeman got his crew - R. A. Nordmann and Foster Pfleger away to a fine start, nosing across the starting line ahead of Gray and moving to a two-length lead, but Gray and Crewmen I. W. Ricciuti and Alvin Weinfur-ter overhauled the Buccaneers a half-mile out and swept into the lead and finished 25 lengths ahead. New. Orleans raced the course in 1 hour. 30 minutes and 30 sec onds, which beat Buccaneer by 1 minute, 52 seconds. Behind New Orleans and the Buccaneer club at the end of the four scheduled races, and their point totals, were: Biloxi, Miss., 33; Pensacola, Fla., .31; ST. PETERSBURG. FLA., 30; Gulfport, Miss., and Houston, 27; St. Andrews Yacht club , of Panama City, Fla., and Pass Christian, Miss., 24; Navy, Corpus Christi, 17; Navy, Pensacola, 16, and Mobile Yacht club, 12. In the morning race, Pensacola won in 1 hour, 35 minutes and 11 seconds. The order of finish and the skippers were; Pensacola (Joe Marques) ; St. Andrews (Floyd Davis); Buccaneer (Shaw Freeman); ST. PETERSBURG (J. C. MABRY); Gulfport (Dick Gray); Houston (Harry Baker); Biloxi (Bob Brodie); Southern (James Gibbons); Navy, Pensacola (W. E.
