PAGE SIX THE lOVA DAILY REGISTER. FRIDAY EVENING. MARCH 3. 1933. TURK DOES 0. K. FAILS TO ENTERTAIN FANS Cox and Ali Draw but the Greek Has Setup in Hans Shebart The fourteenth edition of the rough house "rasslin." racket went off as advertised in M. W. A. hall last night with orie good match being shown- and one riot so good match also being shown. The Terrible Turk—All Hussein— and the Ferocious Fredonlan—Or- vel'Cox—put on a top notch Texas rules scrap for the first event on the card, going to a draw, but John Ellis. Ottawa, and Hans Shebart, Amsterdam, ^Holland, failed to win many plaudits of the onlookers as Ellis captured the main event. Cox always puts on a good show here and the Turk was something now. The match measured up to expectations. Cox and Hussein went at it In earnest from the start, with the former taking the .offensive nearly all the time, backing Hussein Into a corner where they would go n( it as though they meant It. Long swinging swipes with elbows and" apparently closed fists proved the most effective offensive move on the part of both men and drew the most gleeful chirps from J .he mgsiders. Hiussein displayed some sort of deceptive swing toward Cox's head which would send the Fre- donan S !)inning 'round and 'round and vonce ended in Cox merry-go- rounding out of the ring. Another liigh light was when the Turk climbed the ropes.at a corner and Cox kicked him soundly. Cox took the first faU in 34 minutes. A Pi'jedonia fool-proof flip laved the gentleman from T^key. with the .stream-lined' face away. In 4 minutes of the .second fall a series Tfraining Camp Notes Tanbpa, Pla., Mar. 3. (AP).— Maybe the ease with which he knocked down sizzling hot grounders had nothing to do with it "but at any rate President Sidney Well came to a ccntract agreement with Infielder J 3e MorrLssey while he performed in a Cincinnati Red uniform and Mori-b:sey stood around in "clwles." "Sunny Jim" Bottomley, the first baseman recently acquired from St, Louis, also came to terms, leaving Pitcher Larry Benton the only player unsigned today. Bottomley was believed to have accepted somewhere between $10,000 and $13,000. Palso Robles. Calif., Mar. 3. (AP). President William Benswanger of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball club, in sitting training here, may move the fence of his practice field farther! away from the plate. So many baseballs have sailed over I already the matter is becoming seriojus, he said today. Gus Suhr in his ilrst time at bat this spring smacked the first pitched ball over the icreen. A minute later Forrest Jenstn duplicated the feat. Paul Wanpr twice missed by Inches. St. Petersburg, Pla., Mar. 3, (AP).

"The laclt of any hair on the head j of the German Ox delighted the fans wheh he appeared for the main event. As one ringsider re- i marked, "the first match was worth' a quarter and it was worth 10 cents to sec the Ox." A body scissors resulted in the first fall going to Shebart in 19 minutes. Ellis took the second fall in 7 minuf,es with a body slam. He also received the third when he apparently kicked the Ox-on the chin while lyin; flat on his back. ' The Ox tumbled over and lay in a heap on the canvas for. a few momcnLs ! as the fans crowded around ihjo ring on their way out lor a clo3e-up \iew.

POWER TO MAJORITY Rainey to Let Democrats Rule Under Him aa Spealcer Avalon, Calif.. Mar. 3. (AP).— Burleigh Grimes' plans for a big comeback with the Chicago Cubs thus year already has received a setback. The veteran spitball pitcher was in the hospital today with an attack of influenza. Grimes, hero of ".^the 1931 world seriefs while v^ith the Cardinals, had all manner of bad luck last year, what with influenza and bad teeth. He had an appendicitis operation during the winter and w.as all set to bear down, only to have illness delay, him again. Washington, Mar, 3. (AP)—The he.\t speaker of the house—Representative Rainey of lUlnois—today made plans for divesting that high office of much of its power and giving it to the Democratic majority. A steering committee is jto be formed, Rainey announced last nigiit soon after his nomination in caucus, which henceforth will shape the policies of the ^ouse. y "Our failures in tiie 72ixd congress, what few tliere have been, have been due entirely to the fact that the direction of policies has come entirely from the speakei^'s chair," he said. "Prom now on it will come from the Democratic party." Rainey, white-haired, 73-year-old veteran in the house, will succeed John N. Gamer, the vice-president- elect. He was chosen over Representatives McDuftie of Alabama, ranking of Mississippi, Jones of Tex^as, and Bankhead of Alabama. Nomination Is I tantamount to election. ; Representatives Byms of Tennessee, was selected as floor leader, the post held by Rainey. Rainey is regarded as a liberal. Despite his j-ears he has shown vigor and fearlessness in his leader^ ship. Frequently he has clashed with the conservative element in his party wliich in the next house will number 313.

(AP)—More than l.'iOO ijersons are known to have been killed In the earthquake, tidal -wave and fire which de\'astated a section of the^ortheastem seaboard of Honshu Island, largest of the Japanese archipelago, early this morning. The full extent of the casualties had not been determined at eleven o'clock tonight, but the governor of the province of Iwate, which siif- fered most heavily, reported that l.llC lives had been lost to Iwate alone, mostly north of Kiyako, a seacoast town 300 miles .northeast of Tokyo. The total number of dead rose to 1535 with reports from the provinces of Miya^i, Aomorl and Hokkaido Miyagl i^ on the east coast, sou^h of Iwate province. Aomori is the province at the northern end or Honshu Island. Hokkaido is a smaller Island north of Honshu. It v/as estimated that the center of the earthquake was 125 miles ^ southeast of Klnkwazan Island, I which would place It al a spot n\ the sea about IPO miles northeast of Tokyo. Rei)orts from the provinces most ficiinurly affected said that 7,930 homes had been destroyed by the earthnuake and the tidal wave and fire v.'hich followed.

Squawkers in Sports •OIGHT fans who boo when they see enacted what has every appearance of being a fake, such as the recent Camera - Schaal bout, are not the only squawkers "in sports, either. Not a single branch oC sports as it is played, today is exempt from the raucous razz. Mr. J. Hemingway Twaddle takes his 60 golf sticks and'^e- palrs to the course. He° has a swell drive for once in his, life. And, miraculously, bis second shot rolls right onto the green, two feet away from the pin. He putts for a birdie three. His ball misses the cup by three Inches. Does Mr. Twaddle laugh it off? Does be say to himself, "Well, well, Hemingway, you are not so good with your putter today. Come, come, you must do better"? Not often. What Twaddle usually does is to look severely at his putter. Such putters as they make nowadays! Or, it may be Thursday, and that is Twaddle's day to curse the green, which is pretty sure to be too dry and very bumpy. Probably the greens- keeper will hear all about It. <> • * At the Tracks CPORTS are full. of squawks. Some of them are a great help —they do some good. Others are Just so much futile exercise of the tonsils. The race track fan sees what he thinks is a good thing, quoted at something like $849.50 to ?1. He takes a chance and bets the beast to show. The horseshows. And the show price tacked up on the board is $.1,60. Does he scream! The track 'is "knocking down!" It's A crooked track and always has iieen. i The whole game i.s unclean and the people in it are throttling it to death. It is easy to remember the squawk that weut up last fall concerning the sale of world series tickets. You were not allowed to ituy a reserved seat for a single g.-itne. It was necessary, in order w see aay part of tbe world se­ ries games In New York or Chicago, to" buy/seats for all the games in either city • • * It Brings Results CPORTS writers, who for the most part are elert to every complaint from the paying clients, printed the squawks faithfully. As a result the ruling on series seats has been changed to allow the tan who supports the team all season to but a slrigle seat for a single game. Of all the games, baseball perhaps entertains the most squawks. The customers squawk at umpires' decisions. The athletes themselves squawk concerning their pay. Fans .pan what they regard as unfftvorable trades. Grandstand master minds squawk at the manager's choice of pitchers. Flatbush is a squawkers' paradise since Dazzy Vance was traded down the canal. Certain of the magnates, notably Phil Ball, squawk at the dictates of Commissioner Landis. All of the men in the game and all the people who watch it seem to have a boisterous beef coming about something;or other. Fans squawk at wrestling matches when the grunters sit too long in one place. The customers' squawks, more than anything else, changed wrestling from a recjining racket to one replete with zip and zest, and the boys seem pleased to behold the air filled with flying bodies, even though such ferocity is mainly feigned. • • • Track artd PootbaU TPHE track partisan\likewl8e is not exempt from the tempta-* tion to cry out. He yells about the timers and the rules. There were repeated growls during the Olympic games from this nation and that regarding the conduct of the contests. For years there •*as a concerted uproar in tennis fbr an open tournament in which pros and amateurs ^ould meet as they do in golf. Finally this year the U. S. It. T. A. opened its ears and sanctioned such a contest. LaHARPE, Mar. 3,—Miss Lois Barker vras an all night guest'Tiies- day of Miss Leila Ruth Oliver in lola.
