THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN, THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 1933 15 S ORTS nr 1 ° iLiL 11 Onifdlt RAY MANGRUM TAKES GOLF LEAD IN HIGH • AGUA CALIENTE WIND By GEORGE H.BEALE ,, United Pr(ii Staff Correiponiltnt \ QUA CALIENTE, Jan. 12.—A tall, gangling Texas youngster from •**• Waco headed a column of golf stars as they drove off in the second round of the $7500 Agua Callente open tournament here today. Defying a high wind which devastated the scores of pretournament favorites, llay.Mangrum, 22-year-old professional, clipped three strokes from par to take the lead in the opening round with a sparkling 69. Mangrum bettered par on each nine holes, going out in 35 and returning in 34. The wind, which arched the drives of such favorites as Craig Wood, defending titlist; Fred Morrison and MacDonald Smith into far-away roughs and glens, whispered good fortune to the youngster. Archie Hambrick, comparative, unknown from Zanesville, Ohio, virtually kept pace with Mangrum to* a card of 70 and took the position of runnerup. Behind the Ohio pro by one. stroke came Hortou Smith, youthful Mlssourlan, and John Kogers of Denver. Wood,, the outstanding favorite by virtue of triumphs in three of tha four Pacific coast tournaments this winter, and Morrison were bracketed in the 75 score class along with Olln 1-utru. P. A. G. champion, MacDon- uld Smith and George von ^ilm, Los Angeles. Willie Goggln of San Francisco nnd Eddie Loos of Chicago stroked scores of 73 while trailing them with 74s were Charles Sheppard •of Oakland, "Llghthorse" Harry- Cooper of Chicaap, Leo Bolstnd, Minneapolis amateur, and Paul itunyon of Westchester, N. H. Scores an Eagle Mangrum, who is registered out of Los Augiiles, shaved u stroke off par In his outgoing nine by scoring an tagle on the difficult 5 par No. 6 hole. He carded another eagle on the 5 par eighteenth. His long drives were little affected by tho winds which rebutted the tee shots of the veterans so disastrously. Espinosa muffed a chance to tie for sretmd place when he took three putta on the eighteenth green. His second putt missed the cup by three Inches. Calmer Day With assurance of a calm day from the weatherman, the veterans hoped to regain their stride today. The wide margin that separated them from the youthful leaders placed them at a. great disadvantage, however. 60 — Kay Mangrum, Waco, Texas. 70 — Archie Hambrick, Zanesville, Ohio. 71 — Horton Smith', Springfield, Mo.; Johnny Rogers, Denver. 72 — Al Espinosa, Akron. 73 — Willie Goggln, San Francisco; Eddie LOOM, Chicago. -<*> CAGE SCORES (Associated Press Lcasttl Wire) Columbia, 31; New York, 26.

I'rctf Leased Wire) CHICAGO, Jan. 12.—Al Simmons is getting ready to supply hits for the White Sox but ho can't see anyone but the Yankees In the 1933 American League race. ' "Those Yankees should be 25 games | In front of the finld by the lust of July," Al said. "Who's going to stop them? Certainly not tho Red Sox, nor the Browns, nor Detroit, nor tho White Sox. I don't think the- Indians can muster enough strength to keep a steady pace and Connie Mack is depending on youngsters to stay up there. Washington won't do it either. So it looks like the Yanks. "Ruth will be bock. Yes, I know he's getting old and all that, but what helps the Babe is the fact that he can conserve his energy with a club like the Yankees. He doesn't have to run himself out all tho time; hence, when he has to step lively he cim do It. Nope, they look good to me." Plenty of sleep and good food constitutes Simmons' training" program for the 1933 campaign.

The drastic retrenchment in expenditures for minor sports, ordered by the Associated Students' organization, will eliminate participation of tho Golden Bears In the roughkeep- slc regatta. BEAR CREW MAY GO EAST ONpHMS. r'.4«*ocf<ir></ Press Leaned Wire) BERKELEY, Calif., Jan. 12.—Do- nalinns from supporters at large was the only hope today of 1&33 national competition by the Vniver.sity of California boat crew, 1032 Poughlceepslc regatta and Olympic games winner, as a. result of :i heavy blow from the economy :ix at the university. Following announcement last night by the etxerutlvo committee of the associated students that no appropriation would IK.' niiiOe to send the crew to PouKhkecp.sle, by Ebrlght, coacU of the champion oarsmen, said hfi would seek funds through subscription. The economy program which slashed 20 per cent from all salaries—contract couches were asked to accept tho cut voluntarily—nlso eliminated track and i field competition In the Intercollegl- 1 ate A. A. A. A. meet and the summer ! tour of tho tennis team. j Members of the executive committee said the program would mean a tavlng of appro'jiinately JDMOO In athletic expenses. N EW YORK, Jan, 12.—The fate of tho Poughkeepsle regatta, classic of the collegiate navies, rests with the stewards of the Intercollegiate How- h,,; Association, meeting here today. Despite disheartening reports from schools whose exchequers are depleted, optimism prevailed before the meet- Ing. It was the consensus that smooth- swinging oarsmen again would sweep their glistening shells down tho blue Hudson In June. Big Crews Out Pessimists feared that the withdrawal of Washington, Wisconsin, Cornell and California might lead to abandonment of tho event. But Maxwell Stevenson, chairman of the board, said he was confident the re! gatta would be held. He had hopes that Cornell and California might be represented by varsity shells through private financing. The board of stewards comprises representatives from Columbia, Pennsylvania, Syracuse, Cornell and Navy. In tho past their chief duty was to set dates and times for the races and send out invitations to the eight or nine schools to bo represented. Today, however, their main task Is to keep the regatta alive. California was definitely eliminated last night, as far an school financing is concerned, when the university's executive committee ordered a reduction of $42,000 In the athletic budget. Thus, the Golden Bears, champions of 1932 and winners of the Olympic eight-oared title, will retire undefeated unless Coach Ky Kbrlght can raise private backing for the crew. Cornell May Race It was believed Cornell alumni will see to It that the school has a varsity shell at Poughkeepsle. Rowing was the first intercollegiate sport in which Cornell participated, and It has won more Poughkeepsle, titles thnn any other college. If the stewards decide to hold the regatta, there's a possibility the date mny be advanced. Last year It was rowed on June 20. An earlier date would save training expenses. Dalboni and Frost Watch Team's Weaknesses During Melees W EIGHT teams of Bakersfleld High School won n pair of practice games handily yesterday afternoon, the Class B squad winning from the Methodists, Y. M. C. A. tongue outfit, by a score of 20 to 17, while tho high school Clans C team defeated Standard School's cagern, 2-1 to 9. Though tho Methodists got tho jump on Coach Dalbom's middles In the opening minutes, the high school quintet soon started Into action, took the lead nnd was never again headed. 13von with tho score steadily mounting, "Dal" was dissatisfied with tho passing and general teamwork of his squad and mixdo numerous substitutions. Flyweights Win Coach Jack Frost's flyweights had Ittle trouble In overcoming tho Standard boys and continued to draw ahead though the lightweight mentor sent In ils second nnd third strings. MUldaugh led tho Class C boys for scoring honors. Stlnson, the reserve center, who showed unexpected strength against Delano lust .Saturday, continued at the same pace to finish us runner-up to MUldaugh. The lineups: HOT OR COLD .
