• I'M" THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN; THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2,1933 13 S P O R T S RING ECHOES iRiDYTOMEET IAIWA HERE Prbspects Are for Close Game Against Squads of West Side T ODAY the Bakersfleld High School cagera were going 1 through final stiff workouts preliminary to their three games with Marlcopa High's Class A, B and, C teams here Saturday evening. Coincidentally, they were doing the same thing in the same way exactly 10 years ago today. Coach Griffith was quoted as being "pessimistic" as to the outlook 'before that game a decade ago. Despite his professional pessimism, how- fever, the Driller basketeers, led by Snider, Hanson and Caldwell, defeated the Marlcopa unlimited team by a count of 52 to 5. "Griff" Is still pessimistic. He probably would be that way even If , he knew that the Drillers were going to win by 60 points Instead of 47. But the 'chances are that he has good reason to - look gloomily toward Saturday evening of this week. Marlcopa's unlimited squad gave the Taft Wildcats all the opposition they could handle In an early-season game, ap-1 since the Wildcats hold a decision over the Drillers, prospects are for a close game. . The Drillers are playing better basketball than at any time yet this season, due partly to lessons learned from the U. C. L. A. freshmen, but It remains to be seen whether they can snap out of their slump In scoring ability. In ptvotlne, passing and other fundamentals they show marked improvement, and Eyherablde and Beavers are becoming more consistent in their marksmanship. t About Same Lineup The lineup remains practically un, changed. Dally and O'Brien are alternating at forward with Eyherabide. Beavers is at center, and Quails * and Ellis are still battling it out for one of the guard positions, with Beatty firmly situated in tho other. In Coach Dalbom's middleweight camp, the first five remains unchanged, but attention Is being centered on the rapid rise of two uub- stitutes, McCarthy, a husky guard, and Haworth, forward. McCarty and Haworth arc up against a tough proposition, because if they are to play first-string middleweights it will have to 'be over the heads of five or six veterans of much greater 'experience. Coach Dalbom can and .will' use them part-time, however, and they will serve as a spur to the regulars who-jplght be Inclined to loaf in too much . security. Frost's Changes It is In the ranks of Coach Frost's lightweights that the influence of the Bruin invasion Is most obvious. "Jack" Frost adopted certain tactics of the college freshmen," both offensive and defensive, and Is attempting to work them out with his peewees. If the stuff works even half as efficiently for the Frostme,n as it did for the Bruin Cubs, these TBakersfleld lights are on their way to the races. The last shift In lightweight lineup moved Stlnson from center to guard and Coats in at center, giving Coach Frost an even taller aggregation .than he had before. The other positions remain the same, with Mosconl and j. Kinouhlta, forwards, and Allen Snider, guard. In his capacity as high school director of athletics, Coach Dalbom has invited elementary schools of the city to send their 'basketball teams to tho high school games Saturday, free of admission charge.

KRUSKAMP WINS HIS MATCH WITH SANTEN IN MAT MAIN EVENT By JIM DAY F LYING tackles of Harold Kruskamp, former football star of. Ohlp State, battered the bulky Charley Santen Into submission here last night in the main event of the evening's mat cajrd. Through virtue cf his victory Kruskamp will be matched here on the next wrestling card with George Wilson, former grid star of the University of Washington. Santen, the big dirigible from Missouri, gave Kruskamp a bad battering during the evening which made the latter's victory all the more spectacular. For a 218-pound man Santen was as fast as a jungle cat and combined with his velocity was^ ' the great momentum of his massed bulk. • Santen won the first fall with a "Lindbergh twirl," to use Bill Powers' neat euphemism. (There's a four-bit word for you, Bill.) Time expended In this monumental effort was 1 minute and 28 seconds. Kruskamp appeared nioro or less done up after this first period and wrestled defensively. Ho took a bad battering in the second session, but suddenly shifted to the offensive and pounded the Missouri mastodon all ON THE MAT (AssoelafeVJ 1'ram Leased Wire) NEW YORK (Rldgewood)— Ed Strangler Lewis, 240, Los Angeles, threw Marin Pleitina, 240, Jugo- slavia, 33:30, over the mat with a series of flying tackles in which he shares the patent rights with Gus Sonnenbcrg, the aatromony professor from Detroit. This fall was won by Harold In nine minutes and 13 seconds. Kruskamp took the second and deciding fall In four minutes and 3S seconds. Hill Overmatched Tho luster of Don Hill's speed and brilliance was dimmed somewhat last night by Yaqul Joo, middleweight champion of the world In the junior division. Joe was too powerful for the young stylist and too heavy for him. yet Hill held the Indian,to one fall which Joe won during the first session in 21 minutes and 33 seconds with a flying body scissors. There was no fall during the second period and on the basis of the first fall Colonel Hopkins awarded the match to Joe. It was a tough match and Joe had no .setup. Hill sXows to better advantage iigalnst a man of his own weight, however. Fenton Shows Well The open'er set a fast pace for the show. Hod Fenton the Canadian came to life and put up far and away his best match so far in this country. He showed speed and versatility which have not marked all of his matches here. He and the powerful Hex Mobe- ley wrestled to a draw. Colonel Hopkins did his usual Job of competent refereelng, with Joe Herpel at the bell and the one-and- only Bill Powers at the "mike."

Leading the league in scoring, by virtue of :!2 points aglnst Heedley and Portervllle, Lyle will be a hard man for Coach Let Kienholz to replace for this Friday's game here with Vlsalla. Mon- cler, who ."cored 12 points against Bakersfleld High here last week, may supplant Newton, who has been Lyle's substitute to date. Sewell's loss Is now Klenholz's gain. Moncier, gained via the graduation route, should fit in nicely with the Cougar system as He has been working out with the college boys for a week. v Vlsalla boasts a strong team built around Richardson, lanky center, who has a pretty fair eye for the basket. Bakersfleld defeated VIsalia, 32 to 25, on Its home court two weeks ago.

I mentioned previously that in tho forward svi-ine the left hip must at no time tro forward of the line which would, in your address position, extend from tho point of your hip to the ball. Now of any thousand club member golfers, it Is safe to assume that 90 per cent of them would so swing thai the left side of the body lunges beyond this line—to the left of It—ua tho clubhead swings through the ball. Right there is a most prolific source of many of the things which aggravate golfers. For In doing that you are using.a wrong principle, and one which make? Impossible any adherance to the principle of holding your head still a.nd of the principle of letting the clubhead, through natural acceleration, do all the hitting. Shoving the left side of the body forward here releases the gradually accelerating pressure against the swing- Ing club, It lets the hands go forward of the ball, it lets the head move and It lets the right tilde of the body collapse.
