THREE NEW RECORDS Campbell May. Try for - Two More After Speed Buns Yesterday Daytona Beach, Fla., Feb. 23. (AP)—Three new world record land speed records were \p the credit today of Sir Malcolm Campbell, daring British race car driver, and he thought seriously of trying for two more. 1 With new flying start records for one kilometer, one milje and five kilometers, to top more jJian a quarter of a century of thrilling racing and narrow escapes on! the roaring road, the 48-year-old Britisher now wants to try for new stiandlng start marks for one kilometer .and one mile. i Whether he makes any more speed trials now or decides to sail for England shortly, will depend, he said, upon how soon he recovers from an injured left arm, sprained while making repairs to his giant Bluebird racing car a week ago. Throughout his two runs for the three new,flying start records yesterday, Campbell .steered" the hurtling machine most of the way over the nine-mile .stretch, with only one hand. Afterward he described his experience as 'the worst ride I ever had in my life." In making his thunderous runs over the hard-packed sands yesterday, Campbell gathered in new records of 272.4i63 miles an hour over one kilometer; 272.108 over a mile and 257.295 over five kllpmeters to bring to five the number of world land speed records he possesses; He already holds the record of 242.751 over five miles and 238.669 over ten kilometers. Sah Franci-sco. Feb. 23. (AP)-^ Young Corbett, the third, looked out over the welterweight ranks today as the champion of a division In Which he has been the most persistent challenger the last three years. Climaxing a long uphill pull, the Fresno, Cal., left hander became the ruler of the 147-pound class by decisively defeating Jackie Fields In a 10-round bout here yesterday. With a dazzling early attack that won him five rounds before his opponent got started, Corbett piled up an advantage that left no doubt in the minds of 15,000 fans as to his superiority. Corbett fought his battle along well laid plans. He drove in the first blow, a left to the body, and continued to beat hia rival to the punch until midway of the fight. Ho rocked Fields in the third with a left to the Jaw and was far out in front,In the fourth and fifth ses-.| slons.i . Just when Corbett's backers were bpglnhing to predict a knockout. Fields found Jhe range. He got under way to take the sixth round easily, beating Corbett to the face and body. The Fields spurt was short lived, however, as Corbett came back In the seventh to slow his rival down to a walk. The, title holder made his big bid in the ninth in which he pounded Corbett around . the ring ^ith a two-fisted attack. Corbett clinched repeatedly to weather the storm. In winning the title CoriSett achieved the dlstlnctl'bn of'having beaten chamnions on three different occasions. Three years ago in a non-title fight he scored a decision over Fields, who has won and 16st the chamnionship . twice. A few months after trimming Fields, the Fresno boy took on young Jack Thompson, who had succeeded to the title and gave the rangy negroa terrific beating. As . before, the championship was not at stake. The gate receipts staled $56,000 gross and $49,600 net. Fields received $35,000 and Corbett $4,000. SPEAKiSASyseENl?

Let's $ee IDASEBALL writers have put " their talents to use In the winter that is waning answering the question, "What's Wrong T^ith Baseball?" No less than a dozen learned and analytical discussions have been built upon the Idea that Interest in the game has been declining at a rate too rapid to be o.Kplained by tho depression. One school ot thought, led by! John McGraw, calls for more! Fhow of . aiggresslveness by the • v'.ayers. But how are you going to make ball players aggressive? If half of the 'bench la fitting asleep while three men are on . bases in the ninth and Joe Whoo- 1213 is up there trying for a home run that will break up the game, who's going to tell the lads that they ought to Wake upland show some zeal? • • • : Has Mac Changed? ^ "Yf R- McGRAW'S comments In ^'^ this regard are naive, to say itho least. In the old days when Mac really had a fighting bunch of ball players on his hands, he sup, pressed their color and fight with every kind of rule he could think o!, bending them to hia oj*n wishes. It ha found some he . (ViuIJn't bend, he sent them to Cincinnati, or Brooklyn in cx- • iliange lor a watch fob. One-writer says the game needs liioro thrills. Okay! Go out and find soni<^ more Babe Ruths and some more pitchers who can strike hini out. Isn't tliat the answer to that one? AH riglit, but .where? Scouts have been' combing' the I)ushes for guys like the Bam for years. They aren't there. Furthermore there aren't as many bushes to comb. The reason for that is that smaller towns liiive lost interest,, in local base- Uall. How are you going to re.«tore the flaming rooting of 20 yea^rs ago? I don't know. I don't know what's the matter with baseball. I don't even know what's the {matter with the cranberry buslpess. • • I* An Easy ^XOTHER \0n9 . 1 analyst urges that the .\njerican League be bal-! »}.'55'j. ^'^WJ. It's topheavy wub] cuber the Yanks, Senators, Athletics. There's only one answer to that one. Give Bob Quinn part of Colonel Ruppert's players .and pry 6£f a section ot the colonel's bankroll BO that Bobby can buy some more stars. This is some­ thing'for you yourself to dc however. I'm very busy today. While you're about it, tell Jake that he has no business trying to have a winning team all the time, and^ that he should be a good boy and' play around in the second division for a while so the-St. Louis Browns can fill Sportsmen's park. He'll be crfizy about the idea. One of the more optimistic analysts proposes that the morale of the National League contestants should be raised to the point where at least the pennant winner > would make a respectable showing against the American League In that old blue ribbon classic. ' How does this writer propose to-do that? By making the players realize that the success o£ this big sporting spectacle depends upon stifter opposition on their part, and "a greater incentive to win than the mere fight for the winner's share." * .« • Perk Up, Men! TT seems to mo this is' a little bit cracked. Don.'t you suppose Charley Root had every incchtivo in the world to win when ho had two strikes on the Babo In that last world series? How are interior .players going to be made Into superior ones? The National League obviously does not play ball as well as the American. Can you make the National League players better by saying, "Come on, now, felloWs, show some more pep." As for that part about making the incentive greater than the mere fight for the winner's share —just what form is that incentive to take? Money? The player has to fight for every cent .he gets now. Beautiful spiritual friendship? Look at the beautiful spiritual friendship between Clark Grifllth and Walter Johnson. Of course, I do not know what's wrong with baseball: But then I do not - know -ft-hat's the matter with, the peanut brittle game.
