t (i>. *"rr THE BAKERSFIELD CALlfrORNIAN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 1933 13 SPORTS DRILLER BASKETEERS MEET TAFT WILDCATS ON WEST SIDE COURT Trr their new-found scoring strength packed safely away In traveling bags, the Bakersfleld Driller basketeers this afternoon boarded a bus for TafW where they are to meet the Taft High Wildcats In the first round of the county 0. I. F. championship series tonight. Unless the "baggage" should miscarry and the' Drillers lose the eye for the bucket exhibited by them in practice sessions this week, the Griff men have a good chance of coming off on top this evening, but even their most enthusiastic backers are chary of predicting a walkaway. Also on the road to Taft were the Bakersfleld High Class B/and C teams, Coach Jack .Frost's midgets looking forward to their best opportunity of several years to take the< weasure of the West Side babes, while Coach Dalbom's middleweights were on the lookout for squalls ahead in the shape of a highly rated Taft Class B squad. "Opposition faced by the Drillers In their past two engagements, against Selma and the local Mormon quintet, was inadequate to give Coach 'Griffith's boys a severe test, but the general Impression left by these fames Is to the effect that the Drillers are going places this season. Quails or O'Brien , Eyhorablde Is slated for one of the forward berths on the Bakersfleia starting combination tonight, while It remained undecided as to whether Quails or O'Brien would be at the other. Quails has been playing consistently good ball since the flrst of the season, but O'Brien's adaptability to the court game plus his excellent showing against the Mormons may give him the edge. Beavers at center, Beatty' as running guard, and Ellis, as back guard, will probably round out the starting combination. The contest for the back guard position, one that has raged since the first week of practice, Is not yet settled to the satisfaction • of either coaches or players, however, anfcthere may be a considerable number*of changes at this post. Jameson and Dally are In line for guard duty. Absence of Jack Hilton, stellar guard, threw & scare Into middleweight ranks this week, but Jack reported for practice again yesterday llttjfe the worse for his bad cold. Coach Dalbom's starting lineup will be Hilton and Mahler, guards, Llght- ner and O'Connell, forwards, and Den- nluon, center. Fast Team A fast, well-balanced team, with a strong defense and a usually effective offense, the Bakersfleld B'a nevertheless go against the West Side middles this evening anticipating their hardest game since their one- point trimming at Fresno. "Dal" has been attempting to build up a more diversified attack this week and will bank " heavily on Dennlson and LIghtner to keep pace with O'Connell In the scoring end of the game. RENEGADE FIVE MEETS TARTARS IN HARD MELEE Conference Tilt Will Be Played Tonight on Visalia Court CHOCOLATE REFUSED TO U. S. Much as he would like to go Into the game with the psychological advantage of being the underdog, Coach Jack Frost Is "sitting pretty" for to- nlpht. He has a lightweight team that outclasses any other seen at Bakersfleld high In years, and an ample supply of strong reserves. Starting Team Mosconl and Klnoshlto, forwards, Mickey and Allen Snider, guards, and Stinson, center, are considered the probable starting players. Coach Frost has been using Echenlque and Mlddaugh alternately as first string forwards and they, too, will see action. The first game Is slated for 7 o'clock, with the lightweights appearing- first, the mlddlewelghts second and the heavyweights In the final tilt. i « « » Interclub Golf Is on Increase (United Press Leased Wire) LOS ANGELES.

BEAT FIELDS CTANDICAPPBD by the enforced <*"•• absence of Bryan Haworth, who has been the Renegades' highest coring player in practice games, he Bakersfleld Junior College quln- et will go into ita initial test of the Central California Conference se- les tonight against tho Visalia J. 3. Tartars, at Visalia. The ace orward will miss two Important games this week and next, it was eportod today, since, under C. C. C. egulatlons, he will be ineligible for conference competition until the beginning of the spring semester, January 30. Nori was this the only bit of news hat cast a shadow over the departure of the Renegade squad following uncheon In the high school cafeteria ate this afternoon. It was still doubtful whether Mason Fnrtle, running guard, would be In -condition for a hard game after his siege of Influenza earlier In the week. Bob Mulvana has been plnch-hlttlng 'or Purtle In practice and It's possible .hat he will be called upon to start at the guard position this evening. Benton Back Bcnton, also afoul of eligibility rules, was kept from practice two days this week, but will be able to fill his regu- ar berth at center against the Tartars. His height will be essential In matching the 78 Inches of Richardson, Vlsalla's alpine center. Voorhles, Barrett and Harrell are expected to handle the bulk of the scoring, while Hawkins will be at his usual post as right guard. Work Cut Out The Renegades have their work cut out for them in advance. With practically the same lineup as they have this season, the Tartars a year ago de- 'eated the Bakersfleld team In tha first conference game. On the strength of their having played together longer and their last season's record, the Tartars are doped to repeat tonight.

New York Giants Get Glenn Spencer (United Presa Leased Wire) NEW YORK, Jan. 20.—Tha New York Giants announced the signing o Glenn Spencer, right handed pltche and second player acquired In the three-cornered deal with the Pirates and Phillies. Two other players were signed previously, Bill Terry, man ager, and George Davis, outfielder. At the same time the Giants Issuei their 1D33 roster, which discloses tha 35 players will gather at the Los An treles training camp next month. EDDIE MURDOCK CORBETT of Fresno has •!• posted $1000 'as a guarantee with ho state boxing commission—surety that he will fight Jackie Fields In a ivelterwelght championship battle at ban Francisco. All of which accentuates the chaotic eccentricities of this prize Ight business, which, for some ob- ucuro reason la included under the category of sports. Corbctt's guarantee IB just about as superfluous as a clothes lino on an airplane. There la nothing Corbelt would like better than a crack at Jackie Fields. Beat Him Before Corbett has already whipped him, but that doesn't count In tho Illoglc which governs fighting. It was a nontltulur bout with one or tho other overweight. Nevertheless It did not mitigate the decisiveness of Corbott's victory. Unless Corbett suffers Illness or an accident he should knock Field's slock off a second time, If ho can get Fields Into the ring with him again. May Be "Through" Jack Kearns, who manages Fields, probably realizes that .Fields Is about through and with this opinion Is willing to cash In on a titular bout with tho unlucky Fresnan who Is undoubtedly one of the best welters In the countryr ~-' f >• Corbett has whipped most of the first string welters Including Jack Thompson. Ho has won most of his fights with comparative ease too, his southpaw style proving particularly effective against the starboard swingers. Yet ha has never been able to obtain a crack at the title. Evidence of Field's poised on the skids may or may not be plain In his recent loss to a comparative unknown, Eddie Murdock. Blasted Champ Recently Murdock blasted Fields al over a San Diego ring and did everything but pulverize him permanently Murdock knocked Fields down In tho first round of their fight and then proceeded to give him the works. Of course It was*a nontitle affair with Fields slightly over weight. No Marksman The last time I saw Corbett, wh< fought several battles here in the old arena, was at the police target range Corbett, who has n semlunpronounce able Italian name, was In tow of Cap tain Roy Galyen, of the traffic force The fighter was watching sftno of th trnffto officers shooting a rapld-fln pistol course. Tho boxer became Interested and tried to smack out a few tons on th target himself, with a borrowed gun but was not so "hot." In the ring however, he is a deadly sharpshoote and will probably wind up the work: for fields—If Kearns ever gives him n chance. GOMEZ REFUSES TO SIGN FRESH WAGE CONTRACT Goofy Castillian Wants More Money for His Brilliant Work By JACK CUDDY United rrttt stiff Ctrr«M»<«nt TEW YORK, Jan. 20.—Senor Ver' mm "Lefty" Gomez, known to he trade as the goofy Castllllan, s the first baseball player in 1933 o become a holdout after being of- erod a raise. He may bo the last. This action by the Yankees' ace outhpaw hurler would seem almost as unique as the historic incident wherein Mr. X took a bite ut of Fldo'a leg, were It not for tho umnn element Involved. El Gomez la no ordinary man. Ilo'a he glamorouB caballoro who's gallop- ng through big-time baseball with all ho comical flourishes of a befuddled allor on horseback.

Country Boy Lefty did right well for a country toy last season. This awkward bean>ole of a fellow strode out to, the mound In 37 games, not counting the world series appearance, and received about 110,000 for his services. Colonel Jake Ruppert, Jovial brewer who owns the Yanks, sent the pride of Rodeo. Calif., a contract this season calling for an Increase of probably about 12000. But the Castllllan. who Is goofy like a fox, oame thundering down to the club offices and roared at Ed Barrow, burliness manager, that he was "Insulted." Barrow tried to explain to the Irate aballero that his salary had been raised, not cut—that It was Babe tuth who got the $2C,000 slash. But Senor Gomez -would accept no expla- Taft Ball Stars WillJJtudy Game TAFT, Jan. 20.—Benjamin Thoma Loudermllk, who IH known a lot bette to local baseball fans as plain B.

DON HILL AND JACK TOONE DRAW IN FAST SEMI-WINDUP MATCH By JIM DAY 2OMBBR Glen Wade, acting like a dyspeptic grizzly, conquered that '-' mighty mastadon of the mat, Andy Oastoni, here last night by almost .wisting his pillar-like left leg off his huge body with a series of toe iclds. Oastoni won a sullen, hard-fought flrst fall session, pinning Wade after a. punishing body scissors. He took the fall In 23 minutes and 18 seconds. Wade came back and won the next fall after a series of too holds which made tho huge Italian a great grimace of pain. He pinned the shoulders with a pile driver. Wade took the deciding fall after granting tho Italian an extended rest by clamping on another toe hold. It was nations. 'Look at Record!" "I want more money," he shouted. 'You call that a raise, after the way [ pitched last season? Take another ook nt, the records, and don't forget the world series statistics, then maybe we can talk business." He left in a huff. It seems that Lefty, the fast-ball artist, won 24 games and lost only 7 last season. One of his strongest selling points was that he gained seven victories over the Philadelphia Athletics, against one setback. In the second game of the world series ho outpltched Lonnte Warneke, pride of the Chicago Cubs. Romance Too Romance makes It necessary for the man from Rodeo to have more money this year. There's little June O'Dea. star of tho recent musical comedy hit, "Of Thee I Sing." It's hard to keep the finger on Lefty, so we can't Just discover whether ho and June were married, or Intend to be married. Anyway, she's 19 and mighty pretty, and he's about 28. Ruth Is Settling on His Salary Cut (United Press Leased Wire) NEW YORK, Jan. 20.—Salary differences between the New York Yankees and Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrlg are expected to be Ironed out In a few days. Ruth now Is willing to take a 10 or 15 per cent cut from his 1932 salary of $76,000, nnd Gehrlg telephoned Ed Barrow, Yankees' business manager to arrange a conference tomorrow 01 Sunday. Gehrlg had expressed only mild satisfaction with his 1933 contract which contained a reduction, but the Babe's statement was a complete surprise because on Tuesday he had vowed to fight his $25,000 salary slash to the last ditch. Vernon "Lefty" Gomez, ace southpaw pitcher, still Is a holdout. Schenck Denies He Plans Resignation (Associated Press Leased Wire) LOS ANGELES, Jon. 20.—Joseph M.- Schenck, film producer and pres.

SIR MALCOLM IS SUPERSTITIOUS **+ *** *** *** Speed King Is Crystal Gazer SEEKS BURIED TREASURE, TOO TVTE ll By HENRY McLEMORE United PriM Stuff Ctrrtiitntftot W YORK, Jan. 20.— Of tho five men who have traveled 200 miles per hour or more In a racing automobile, but one remains. He Is Sir Malcolm Campbell. Undaunted by the fate of Seagravcs, Lockhart, Kooch and Bible, he sails for these parts next Wednesday and another Joust with death. His car, the 4000-pound Bluebird, Is already on tho high seas. In It, tho slight, 48-year-old Scotchman hopes to rocket down Daytona's wave-packed sands at 300 miles per hour, some 40 odd miles faster than the world's mark he hung up last year. What manner of man Is this Campbell, who likes to play at a game where one mistake means death? Is speed and more speed his only pas- ulon? No, but It comes first In his life. Ever since that day when, at the tender age of 17, ho was arreste'l for pumping a bicycle at the breathless rate of 27 miles per hour, Sir Malcolm's life and a large share of his $250,000 Inheritance have been devoted to speed. does In for Spaed He's tried most all of tho means of rapid transportation, car, Boat and plane. Few are the decent "straightaway*)" In the world that haven't felt the flying wheels of his car, Daytona, Verneuk Pak In South Africa, Brooklands and Ninety-Mile lieaoh In Australia. Broken axlex, Hat tiros nnd locked wheels at speeds of 100 miles per hour or better have offered 8lr Malcolm more than one opportunity to brush hands with death. Yet here he IB, nearlng 60, coming back for another shot. "I have no fear," he once said. "I am a fatalist. I believe I'm going when my time comes, and no sooner. Whether my time will come In an automobile or when I'm bowling on the green, I don't know. And I don't worry about It." Normally a very -cheery, chipper person, Sir Malcolm, before a race becomes gloomy, Irascible. His chief diversion during the days of waiting for a record run Is checkers. Checkers, and hunting up soothsayers and fortune tellers. The little Scotchman Is profoundly superstitious and a great believer In crystal bolls, star-gazing and palm reading. I* Yachtsman During those few months of tho year when his mind Is not occupied by cars and motors, Sir Malcolm goes In for yachting, the raising of fierce Alsa- tlnn dogs, (-two or three of them always sleep Just outside his bedroom) and treasure hunts In the Cocos Islands, off the west coast of Africa. Three years ago he spent n month at Cocos Islands, where £12,000,000 was supposed to have been laid down In 1821. Ho didn't locato the treasure trove, but ho Insists It's there. Sir Malculm has J40.000 worth of loving rup.H. His car WHS mimed after a play by the same name. There's always a Iior«enhoo In the cockpit.
