PAGE SIX THE TOLA DAILY REGISTER. TUESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 14.1933 lOLA, KANSAS JOEL BROWN IN AS MAGNATE OF MAJOR LEAGUES Comedian Owner of Kansas City Club Won't Be in Unifbrm Kansas City. Feb. 1,4. (AP)—Joe E. Brown, the personable little movie comedian whose mouth Is his fortune, came to town overflowing with bnieball anecdotes and was Initiated ajf a magnatc-by-proxy of the Kan- £ii.s City baseball club. The business of becoming a baseball magnate Is one of the easiest now; the baseball hero of the movies revealed on a brief 'Stopover last night. He said after It became known that he. had participated in the purchase of the Kansas City Blues of the American association through his old friend, Tris Speaker, he liad several inquiries from other clubs seeking his financial support. Brown was met by Speaker, the n^w manager here; President E. Lee Keyscr. and Bill Rodgers. secretary- business manager who raced up froml St. Louis for their first conference with the "angel" of the reorganized club, who has been a lifelong devotee of baseball and was once an aspiring ball player. Behind Traynor. "Sav." Brown asked: "Did you •know I was responsible!for Pie Traynor's success in baseball? It was UD in Boston. Traynor; dressed after the other players and showed some timidity about going onto the field. He didn't know whether to run .iway or not. He later told me that he. saw me out on the ifield and decided that if I was a rhajor leaguer, he could .make the grade too." Although Brown wllL attend the Blues' season-opener herei he will not aTipear in unifdnji. as the new management had hoped. "It's like that old saw," 'If you keep your mouth shut the pcot)lc won't ever find out how little you know,' and if I don't put on a uniform tliey wpn't find out how terrible a ball rilayer I npi," ram»'.ra S^v. Bi'own told about his new baseball movie. He «nld Wally Bcrgei' of Boston, who nlnved In It. could hit nvrrythlng that cnnip Ills way until the cnmerns were trained on lilm and then he couldn't do a thing. Brown, who plays Hocond base In the-picture, had to haVc .several retakes before ho could hit to left field, us pre.scrlbed In the scenario. He bats left-handed. Brown's profe.sslonal baseball career was brief but one bright spot stands out. He once was a pinch •» hitter for Harry; Hooper at 'Boston. "Go on." he pleaded, ''ask me what I did. Boom " He demonstrated the business of making a hit. President Tliomas J. Hickey of the American association invited Brown to be guest of honor at a luncheon in Chicago today. Speaker also went to Chicago for the affair. From there Brown will go to Toledo to visit the old home neighborhood and then he will do two weeks of personal appearances In Detroit and Chicago before attending the inaue- uration of President-elect Roosevelt. Yesterday Brown passed through Topeka. Kas., where, he made his debut as a circus performer at the age of 9.

PHOG ALLEN ON HIGH HORSE IN MISSOURI GAME Two Officials, Worse than None, K. U. Doctor Says After Losing Tilt By ciiafles A. Gnunich. (Asscociated Press Sports' Writer.) Two officials in one basketball game,' ob^rves the venerable Phog Allen, are worse than only one official. Another proponent of that idea is Ernest C. Qulgley. usually is the whole show regardless of whether he has an assistant official The officiating at the Kansas- MlF .<^uri game in Coliunbla last Saturday night doubtless reminded the sage of Mount Oread of a couple of outfielders chasing a fly ball and letting: it drop between them whils they put on the Alphonse-Gaston act. Or maybe Doctor Allen was reminded of the eye specialist who sent a patient away untreated because he .specialized on the left optic whereas the suffering one had right eye trouble. Doctor Allen was highly displeasr ed with the officlatiiig, which is no reflection upon either Jack North or Dwlght Ream, thie arbiters of the game. Henceforth Kansas games will be officiated by one man. The frenzied scramble for playing talent with which to load up bas- ketba,!! teams prior to the national tournament in Kansas City is on.i Ernie Schmidt of Pittsburg is going' with the Hutchinson Renos, who: will reclaim Adolph (too tall) Dietz-; el for the tournament. Dletzel re-; turned to Texas Christian imlvers-: ity recently. Bill Johnson and El-i mer Schaake of Kansas are pros-; pects for some of the A. A, U.i teams. t Tlic coaches, too, are getting the call.

"Honiey, are you my sweetheart " she pleaded. "Yes, Mom," he whispered. "How are you?" she asked. "I'm okey. Mom." He couldn't be roused again. Spectators at the fight were struck with the fact that most of the time Schaaf offered only a desultory defense to the lumbering attack of the huge Camera, At times he' walked Into Camera's slugging gloves with hts arms almost at his side. By the thirteenth round Schaaf was in distress. Camera lumbered into him with renewed energy. He shot a left jab to Schaaf's head, and the Boston man dropped. The cries of -fake" I echoed through the Garden. It did not seem that a jab so lightly landed could have caused a knockout. The crowd did not know wjhat is! known today that Schaaf wa^ "out: on his feet." and that any blow, or; as one doctor later put it, "no blow at all," might cause his final collapse under the ten times sweep of the refereee's count. Sharkey Into the Ring. Sharkey, who wia& in Sciiaaf's corner, rushed into the ring and lielped drag the fighter back to his stool. The cries of the crowd continued, ebbing only -when Schaaf, still unconscious, was carried from the ring. Sharkey was part owner with Buckley of Schaaf's contract. The fight between Camera and Schaaf was originally made with the intention of. havlijg the .winner meet Sharkey later this year for the heavyweight championship. There was such public protest, however, (because of Sharkey's part ownership of SchaaTs contract) that the Oar- den ^management announced that only if Camera won would a championship bout be longed. ; As a result Schaaf entered the fight with nothing to gain iK> far as the title was concerned, and everything to lose. Experts at tho I ringside scored most of the rounds in favor of Car- ncra, but moat of them were struck by Schaaf's seemlriK diffidence and failure to make a fight of it. After the flght it became known that Schaaf only a fortnight ago, had recovered from an lllnc&s of influenza, and this wax advanced by Ills supporters as accounting ^or liLs unfavorable sliowing, I The last prominent Iieavywclght previous to Schaaf to bo fatally injured in the prize ring was Bull Young, who died after fighting Jess WlUard at Los Angeles more than 15 years ago. About 18 years ago, Luther McCarthy died in the ring after being struck over the heart by Arthur Pelkey in Calgary. , Miami Beach, Fla., Feb. 14, (AP) Jack Sharkey, who left here hurriedly last night in hope of reacli- ing the bedside of his protege and former sliipmate, Ernie Scliaaf, before the fighter died, told Just before he left of the blow that drop­ ped ISchaaf diiring the Prlmo Car- Bcra fight. "Johnny Buckey (SchaaTs manager) didn't see the blow," Sharkey said, "but I saw it. It -was a left— a jab. Ernie sagged and half tiUTi- ed. I knew he was hurt. Schaaf reeled a- Uttle and we saw his eyes- blank as could be. Then he wem down. Ail I can sec ever since Is that kid lying there, his face liko a mask and looking so pitiful." ' Sharkey and his wife arrived here yesterday morning for a Vacation. Last night Sharkey talked with New York by telephone and, learning of Schaaf's critical condition, left at once.

Thc^ mere faa that such a business LIVES and GROWS is the finest proof that it is serving the people. As is true of every business that has gone ahead, Sundard Oil's success in Kansas has been merely the echo of sound helpfulness to Kansas. Here you have the fourth largest oil-producing sute in the Union. If Kansas was to capitalize her resources somebody with the experience and the means and the inclination had to make a market for Kansas crude. This has involved, among other things, laying pipe lines under the soil of Kansas, and fin^ setting, up one of the largest r^fin* rV. cries in Kansas and devoting it to process* ing Kansas crude into Kansas gasoline for Kansas cars. Yes—there has been plenty for Sundard.Oil to do in Kansas, and since nothing builds weight quite so well as work. Standard Oili:has experienced <a. healthy growth in Kansas.
