Tune hi On WDAE THE TAMPA DULY TIMES, THURSDAY, JITXK 3, 1:S8 LE La La J TO SPOR T-R A YS Fans Ignore Donald Budge Victory Conceded to American Engle Will Try Anything In Promotions , Sledge to Meet Cowboy for Wrestling Belt By BYRON H OLLINGS WORTH. The boys with the pocketbooks have been crowding Donald Budge almost off the center court at Wimbledon, and much to the surprise of the boys as well as most tennis fans, Budge says he's "not in the least interested in turning Of course, Donald may decide blasts Bunny Austin off the courts in the finals at Wimbledon if he does. Probably Budge is skeptical about his ability, especially since Bunny is a pretty good player himself. Budge has looked so good on his foreign invasion not including the trip to Australia earlier in the year that experts are beginning to say .that the American redhead will have to turn to the professionals to find , suitable competition. There are only four amateurs considered capable of giving Budge a battle Bobby Riggs, Adrian Quist, Johnny Brom-wich and Baron Gottfried Von Cramm. But none of these entered the meets in Europe. Riggs stayed in America, Von Cramm is in a German concentration camp, and Quist and Bromwich are in Australia. Budge has been so outstanding at Wimbledon he has been ignored. Reports from the scene of the tournament tournament to Budge then forgot the women's events. There's oue thing certain, if in other tournaments, he'll have the press quits using his name. good after all. Rogers Hornby had some difficulty at St. Louis due to wagering -en horse races, but as manager of the Chattanooga Lookouts in the Southern League, the Rajah can play all the horses he desires and not be bothered if the team wins "I don't care whether the Rajah plays the ponies, checkers and dominoes at the same time, as long as he has a winning team," Joe Engle. owner of the club said. Joe is baseball's biggest showman. ' He has hung canaries in the ball park to sing to the fans if the game became dull, and staged an lephant hunt. He sold shares in the franchise at $5 each to fans so be could buy the club from the Washington Senators. Xothing seems to help the Lookouts win games, and if the Rajah will promise to get the club out of the second division, we wouldn't be surprised to see Enjle build a Ijorse track next to the ball park and run races so that the Rajah can follow the ponies better. When Babe Ruth was cavorting in the outer garden at the Yankee Btadlum, New York had a great following. When Babe left, the fol lowing hung on until the Yankees cut the other clubs being able to But this year it's different. The Yankees haven't been faring so well and there has been a great decrease in interest in the Ruppert outfit. O. B. Keeler of the Atlanta Journal, writes "Speaking 'of the Tanks, and somewhat ill-naturedly, and expressing merely a personal viewpoint, I am absolutely unprejudiced, unbiased and impartial concerning the Yanks. I don't care who beats them, only hoping it's often and plenty." , Some irate wrestling fan called and asked how the "Viper" came out Monday night at Benjamin Field. To this fan the "Viper" was none other than Cowboy Luttrall, meanest man in wrestling. Luttrall can wrestle as well as the best, but he likes to be mean and detests being matched with matmen who are scientific in their methods. This hasn't had any effect upon Promoter Rudy Miller who sa,ys he will let the Cowboy show how good he is next Monday night when lie meets. Bill Sledge for the State title. Anglers9 News and Views Sirs. W. G. Freeman, Boston, Mass., brought in the first tarpon in her fishing experience yesterday while Jack. Whiteside was adding to his family's record with two more, bringing his total to four.

GIANTS START PULLING AWAY IN NATIONAL Pirates Nudge Cubs Out Third Place With Win Over Reds of By BILL BOXI. Associated Press Sports Writer. Volunteer medicos who have been keeping their fingers on the pulse of the puzzling New York Yankees are heading for the safety of the sidelines. For the Bronx Bombers seem about ready to start blasting their way to the top and, when they are in a blasting mood, the sidelines is the only safe place for anyone. The world champions have looked oddly unfitted for that title on more than one occasion this season. But they looked like nothing so much as a high-geared army tank when they returned to the stadium yesterday and flattened the Athletics into 10-0 and 13-1 submission. With 'the three out of four they won at the end of their western trip,, that gave the Yanks a record of five victories in their last six starts, four of them in succession. It also gave the bombers an average of better than thirteen hits for each game, and a home run average of two per game. Five Homers. Yesterday's production, which included five four-baggers, two by Flash Gordon, hit a new high of 27 hits for 49 bases. And, not to be outdone, Lefty Gomez and Bump Hadley took handsome care of the pitching department with a pair of four-hitters. Three of the safeties Gomez surrendered were se'ratch singles, while' Hadley would have had a shutout but for a home run ball he served Frank Hayes. Coupled with the Yanks' twin triumphs came the Cleveland Indians' 4-3 defeat by Detroit a combination which cut Cleveland first-place margin to three games. While the Yanks were cutting down on the Indians, Gotham's other entry also climbed a notch. The league-leading Giants, whipping the Phillies, 9-1 and 6-2, increased their lead over the Cincinnati Reds to three games. After Hal Schumacher had tossed a six-hitter that kept the Phils blanked for eight innings, Cliff Melton followed up by scattering ten hits so well the Phils could score in only one inning. Pulling Away. With the Giants pulling away from the Reds, who were nosed out, 5-4, by the Pirates, the third and fourth-place teams changed places. The Bucs' victory, accomplished largely through Bill Swift's one-hit relief pitching, moved them four points ahead of the Cubs, who were beaten, 10-5, by the Cardinals for their third straight defeat. In the other National League game the Dodgers, despite two homers by Dolph Camilli and another by Goody Rosen, lost to the Bees, 7-6, and thus kept intact a record that has seen them lost every league night game they've played.

BOBBY RIGGS BEATS MULLOY IN CLAY MEET Chicagoan Joins Grant, Tilden as Third-Time Winner of Tourney- chicago, June 30. (AP) Bobby Riggs was listed today among the tennis select who have captured the national clay courts singles championship three or more times. The youth who calls both Los Angeles and Chicago home conquered Gardner Mulloy of Miami, Fla., on the Suburban River Forest Tennis Club courts yesterday to win the title for the third time, . Since 1910 only William T. Tilden II and Bryan M. (Bitsy) Grant of Atlanta have done as well or better to win permanent possession of the cup. Big Bill won seven times, Grant three. Mulloy passed Riggs consistently in the second and third sets of their five-set match, but Bobby came back the fresher in the last two, going to the net again and again to kill Mulloy's drives. The score was 6-4, 5-7, 4-6, 6-1, 7-5. The doubles crown went to Joe Hunt of Los Angeles and Lewis Wetherell, Santa Ana, Calif. Their superior volleying gave them a 6-4, 8-6, 6-2, straight-set victory over Britain's No. 2 ranking player, Charles Hare of Birmingham, England, and Klwood Cooke of Portland, Ore.

TASTy, HELENS MEET IN FINALS OF TENNIS MEET American Stars Join Donald Budge in Last Round at Wimbledon Wimbledon, Eng., June 30. (AP) Helen Wills Moody and Helen Jacobs, both on the comeback trail, qualified for a renewal of their famous tennis duels today when they advanced to the finals of the All-England championships. Mrs. Moody defeated Hilda Krah-winkel Sperling of Germany and Denmark 12-10, 6-4 after Miss Jacons had disposed of Alice Marble of San Francisco, 6-4, 6-4. The last time America's two Helens met was in the 1935 championships here, when Mrs. Moody, staging her first comeback, came from behind to defeat Miss Jacobs for the title after trailing 2-5 in the third set. Mrs. Moody then went Into retirement as far as major competition was concerned .but Miss Jacobs returned in 19 36 to win the Wimbledon title. Ill health forced Miss Jacobs in the background last year and she was so lightly regarded for the current tournament that she wasn't even seeded. She collapsed in the dressing room before her first round match but came back and showed improvement with each match. Miss Jacobs has beaten Mrs. Moody only once in major competition and that was in the finals of the 1933 U. S. Championships when Queen Helen was forced to default because of a back injury. Miss Jacobs' victory sent her into the all-England finals for the sixth time in nine years. Mrs. Moody has won seven Wimbledon titles. Donald Budge and Bunny Austin will play in the finals of the men's singles.
