THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1933 SPORTS PETE BOSTWICK MAY RIDE IN CLASSIC OF WORLD HORSE RACES By HENRY MoLEMORE VRlM frnt 8UW Cwrtistndtitt " TVTBW YORK, Feb. 3.— It I had been handed three or (our million dollars 11 on my twenty-first birthday, the last thing I would have thought of doing by way of celebration would have been to get on the back of a crazy horse and go galloping out in a steeplechase race. Personally, a horse wouldn't have entered into my celebration at all. Certainly I wouldn't have got mixed up in a steeplechase race where a fellow stands a swell chance of getting kicked In the noggin and laid out-permanently among the begonias. But that's what Pete Bostwick, the subject of today's essay, did. Pete didn't quit with that race. He kept going to the post and winging away over the jumps until he is now recognized here and abroad as the< finest cross-country rider, gentle- man'or professional, of them all. All of which proves, I guess, that even In this country, where'success is supposed to come only to those born in log cabins and without even so.much as a loaf of pumpernickel on the premises, a multimillionaire can get ahead it he has •«nough stuff on the ball. Pete Is now riding in England. He hopes to have a leg up on the winner of the Grand National at Aintree In March. Winning: the Grand National Is to a steeplechaser what win• rilng the Derby Is to a rider on the flat. In short, It's tops, the lust word, the e plurlbus unutn and nux vomlca. Win It and you've won 'em all. May Get Horse Right now, Pete doesn't know (f he's going to get a mount In the Grand National. It Is believed, how- over, that when the field answers the call Pete will be up there on Mrs. F. Ambrose Clark's Kellsboro' Jack. I don't know'whether whether Kells- boro' Jack Is a milk horse or a blue- blood. And It doesn't matter much. AH we know Is that Pete, who "Beaufort," racing expert of the London Evening News, describes as "the nearest approach he has seen to Fred Rees In many a year," will get all there Is out of KellsboJb' Jack. ' Steeplechasing Is not Pete's only i means of showing his contempt for life, limb and a few millions. He turned to high-goal polo In 1930 and came nigh on to earning a place for himself on the American team In « the Westchester cup matches with Gr«at ' Britain. Weighing anywhere from 3 OS to 118 pounds, Pete held his own with the Hltchcocks, the Ped- leps. and the Guests. Friends Peered Because of his lightness, Pete's friends feared for his safety. But their worries evaporated when they saw htm time and again ride off Guest (200), Pedley (190) and Williams (180). It was during the tryouts for the Westchester cup team that Pete set some sort of endurance record. Mornings would find him schooling horses at Thomas HltchcoclB Sr's place. Afternoons, he would ride a race or two at Belmont, following which he drove to the polo field for eight chukkers. Quit Harvard There's a lot more stuff about Pete—how he quit Harvard because "What's the use of going to school when you can yet on a horse's back and get going;" his adventures as an aviator; his tremendous modesty and how, asked If he ever played golf, he replied, "I'd hate for my friends to think I had ever taken up such an effeminate game." But we Just haven't got the room. Golfer Hits "22" and Suffers Bad Wound in Head TAFT MEET BLIA FIVE TAFT, Feb. 3.—Working overtime his week for their game here tonight vlth the Visalia Junior College five, he Cougars are given a good chance 0 defeat the visitors. With confer- enqe wins over Reedley and Porter- vllle, a. defeat at the hands of Visalia would be pretty tough to take at. this line. Ktenholz Is satisfied with the physical condition of his squad for his week as they have been getting n an extra 4B minutes each night on he newly erected outside court, but whether they are in the right mental attitude remains to be seen. Visalia boasts a G foot, 3 Inch cen- er In Richardson, who also was chosen all-conference in football at his same position, and will make .hlngs pretty tough for Taft on tip-off plays. Basketball experts agree that :he team getting the tip-off Is from 1 to 12 points stronger than the opposition. Mangln, forward, who scored 2 points against Bakersfleld is another threat the locals will have to contend with. Bakersfleld won this game, 32 to 25, after trailing at half ime. Head, center, has returned to the squad this week after a siege with •flu" bugs, and will be able to team up with Stone and Moncler at forwards. Elland and Erlewlne are still 'Irst choice at guards, with Endlcott close behind them so far as ability apd actual playing Is concerned. Unable to find suitable opposition the three high school squads will take things easy this week, confining themselves to regular practice sessions. (United Press Leased Wire) LONDON, Ont., Feb. 3.—Francis X. Buchman, former movie star, will patronize United States courts hereafter. Ho sued Albert B. Hamilton, Windsor, Ont., for $10,000 for Injuries sustained when their earn collided. The jury awarded htm $3000 and costs. "If the' accident had occurred In the .United States," Bushman said, "we would have sued for $100,000 and got $50,000. This, for me, Is a washout." Bushman's $3000 In Canadian dollars will be discounted 15 per cent if he exchanges them for American dollars. A Chicago 'trust company has brought suit here to tie up the money to satisfy a judgment returned against Bushman in Chicago, January 22.

Cochran, fanyjus at balkllne, especially 18.2, but a comparative <new- oomer at three cushions, last night removed J. N. Bozeman, Jr., the sensational youngster from Vallejo, Calif., 50 to 40 In 41 Innings, from the championship scheme, leaving Layton as his last obstacle. Even should Layton overcome Cochran, another battle between them would bo necessary for they would then bo tied for first place. Seventh In Eight Last night's triumph was the Call- fornlan's seventh In eight matches while Layton goes Into tonight's all- Important tussle with six victories and two defeats. The defeat dropped Bozeman, probably the most popular player In the tournament, down to ihlrd place with six victories In his nine-game schedule. Brisk Battle Bozeman gave Cochran a brisk battle, leading off with a run of seven. However, his touch deserted him and he went scoreless for the next seven Innings, while Cochran picked up a 15-to-7 lead. Bozeman went ahead in the twenty-third, but Cochran managed to tie It up in the thirty-fourth, and his high run of eight* in tho thirty-ninth put him safely ahead. He picked up four in the next Inning and accomplished tho match point In the forty-first. Should Layton win tonight the playoff for the title will be held Monday night. DIAMOND DUST (Associated frets Lotted Wire) NEW YORK, Feb. 3.—The Brooklyn Dodgers have received the signed contract of Pitcher Fred Helmach, the club announced today. Helmach, who with Wlllla.m Watson forms the southpaw division of the Dodger pitching staff, appeared In 88 games last season,' chiefly in relief roles. He was credited with nine victories against four defeats. At his home in Martlnsburg, W. Va., Hack Wilson, rotund Dodger out- fleldor, revealed last night he had rejected a new offer from the club. The Dodgers were understood to have offered Huck $9500 for his labors In 1933, as compared with $16,600 In 1932, but Wilson says It still Isn't enough. A 10 per cent cut, ho said, would be acceptable to him. Lloyd Brown has Joined Rick Terrell as the St. Louis Browns' representatives In the holdout parade. Brown, a southpaw, was obtained In a trado with Washington. The New York Yankees announced they had assigned the contract of Outfielder George Selkirk to their Newark International League farm. Honus Wagner, generally regarded as greatest shortstop In baseball history, signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates as coach and general assistant to Manager George Gibson. Honus, now C8 years old, spent his en- tire major league career with the Pirates. Luzerne Blue, veteran first baseman, was given his unconditional release by the Chicago White Sox. Blue, who has been In the majors for 12 years, played with Detroit and St. Louis before coming to the White Sox In 1931. The Sox also cut adrift a rookie catcher, Charles Wax, of Virginia Poly Institute. Connie Mack Bald.all his Philadelphia Athletic* except George Earnshaw and Rube Walberg were under contract. He added that neither of these veterans was a holdout. Earnshaw has not even been offered a contract yet and Walberg so far has failed to come around to discuss terms. TERRY SELECTS TEAM WITH Another Important member of tho Boston Red Sox, Roy Johnson, fleet outfielder, has come to terms. Joseph Vosmlk, sensational outfielder, has Joined Bill Clsscll and Karl Averlll as satisfied members of the Cleveland Indians. Vosmlk Is understood to have been granted an Increase on the basis of hla fine work last season. Bill Terry, manager of the New York Giants, thinks his club will be 1-2-3 In the National League next season. He figures tho Pirates and the Cubs will be tho most formidable and all the rest "troublesome." Canzoneri Favored to Beat Townsend (United Press Leased Wire) NEW YORK, Feb. 3.— Tony Canzoneri, world lightweight champion, Is a 3-to-l favorite to beat Billy Townsend of Vancouver tonight In their over-the-welght 10-rounder at Madison Square Garden.

SEATTLE, Feb. 3.—Horseshoes are supposed to be lucky. That's why Biddy Bishop, well known In boxing circles, is today offering a reward for one he says was lost or stolen. He Is willing to pay $100 for the recovery of his horseshoe. Bob FlUslmmons visited Tacoma during the summer of 1908. At Tom Gurley's blacksmith ahop, located in the small street back of Rhodes Brothers' department store, he made a horseshoe and presented it to Biddy Bishop, then a sporting writer on the Tacoma News. Bishop prized the souvenir highly. Just recently he noticed it had been stolen from hln office or from Bishop's Rotlsserle, on the new Seattle-Tacoma highway, where he gays he may have removed It to. "Anyway, the horseshoe is gone and I am offering a reward of $100 to anyone who will return It and there will be no questions asked, no one prosecuted," says Bishop. Bishop says he believes the horseshoe was taken by some "souvenir hound'' who loves to accumulate souvenirs of the boxing ring. *"•"• r Ritchie Stars in Indoor Ball Tilt (United Press Leased Wire) SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 3.— Willie Ritchie, former world lightweight champion, had never played a game of baseball In his life until a group of major league stars Induced him to Join them In a contest with the Olympic Club yesterday. He turned out to be the hero of the game. The major league stars found that indoor baseball Is quite a bit different from the variety they play all summer. They dropped a 7-6 verdict to the experienced Olympic Club. After Lew Fonseca, Chicago White Sox manager and pitcher for the major league aggregation, explained tho game to Ritchie, tho veteran boxer heaved to with a will. Without his "beginner's luck" Fonseca's team would have taken a bad trimming. Kitchle cracked out two singles, a. double and drove In two runs. He also handled three chances In right field with all the alacrity and gusto of a Babe Ruth. . PRINCETON FORCED TO MAKE (Associated Preti Leased Wire) PRINCETON, N.

Mexico Will Have Veteran Netters (United Press Leased Wire) MEXICO CITV, Feb. 3. — Mexico's team, which will oppose tho United States In the first round of. Davis cup tennis play Juno 13, Is virtually certain to be composed largely of seasoned cup players. Ricardo Tapla and Alfonso Unda, the country's first and second ranking players, are certain to make the team, and Angel Holdup, No. 3 In the rank- Ings, appears the likeliest third member. Competition will be keen for the fourth place. Candidates are Jorge Acosta, who was on the 1931 team; Esteban Reyes, national junior singles champion; Jose Llano, and Eduardo Mestro Martinez, who teamed with Undi for the national doubles championship.

S.—Shortly r* after his arrival from Tennessee, Manager Bill Terry opened the crystal-gazing season today by predicting a throe-cornered fight for the 1933 National League pennant between his Giants, the Cubs and tho Pirates. "I figure Plttsbnrg and Chicago will be tough," drawled Memphis Bill ut the Giants' club offices. "So I'll Just suy we'll bo ono of tho first three." Some fellow, entirely lacking diplomacy, mentioned tho fact thul tho Qlants were sixth last year. Bill grunted and snld, "Well, I boosted them two notches last year, didn't 17 They were In last place when I became manager." Terry came to town to honor the veteran ho succeeds at) pilot of the Glnnts last June—John Mcdraw, who will be guest of honor Sunday night at. a baseball writers' dinner. Continuing his baseball horoscope, ho eliminated various clubs from tho pennant race us follows: Boston Doubtful Boston Is none too strong this sea son. You can't figure tho Cardinals as contenders. Cincinnati hasn't a good club. Brooklyn was smart In grubbing Joe Judgo, but tho Dodgers have no reserve strength. Tho Phillies have plenty of power, but that's all. "Wo'vo made a lot of changes In our club. . . . We've got n hustling young club. The changes should give us more power than any other outfit In the circuit, next to the Phillies And we've got them stopped because wo have a better defense. Yeah—tho Pirates and Cubs are the teams we must bent. I don't rate the rest as good as the Glnnts." 'Is Enthusiastic Terry radiated enthusiasm despite his drawl. lie expected Shortstop Travis Jackson to stage a great c?omp- back.

Winston, an aggressive, hard hitting nmuler, started out like a winner and had a distinct edge on Levlnsky until he ran Into a haymaker In the fifth. This wild right to the head sent him to the canvas for the count of two. When he rose, a left hook to the Jnw sprawled him ngaln for a nine- count. Another right to the head sent him for nine more beats. Ho was up, but tho bell naved him from another dive and gavo him a rest. Thosu three trips to tho floor took much Hteum from Winston's punches. Levlnsky weighed 19S pounds; Winston 190. « ^•Bakersfleld's only other opponent of the first round, won from Reedley only after a very closely contested game. An upset tonight, however, would mean goodby titular hopes. Renegade stock was boosted considerably this week when George Ileber, who first starred with the Drillers and then with a number of school tonmH, Joined the Junior col- lego squad.

RIOKT long dominated the old night school WROMfij when tho loft hip, and necessarily the left side of your body aru held in line —with tho left hip drawing back, so that the hips are rather diagonally across the flight line at the moment of Impact, and, contrary to this, what the clubhead does when the loft hip shoots outward at, or slightly before the Instant of ball penetration. In the one case, In which correct hip coordination Is used, tho way Is clear for the club head to go straight through. The body Is out of the way, and tho club head swings up to nnd through the ball areu. In the other case the player has "blocked" himself. The lunging toward the left has caused his arms to swing outwardly, and hence tho action of the club is from the outside In. The dropping of the right bide causes the right hand to push forward, forces the left hand up somewhat, opening back tho club face. This openod-up club face causes the ball to spin and that makes tho ohrontc slice. Tho left side shoving out that way causes the heud to drop, and that makes you swing to the ball, then up.

He ID getting a late start with Coach Peterson's quintet, but his height, weight and natural ability Is bound to bring him Into action with the Renegades within a short while. Whether he will be used tonight remains to bo soen, since "Big Pete," true to form, prefers not to name his starting lineup until Just before the game. Another Hard Tilt In picking the' combination that will do most of the playing tonight, Coach Peterson will probably bear In mind the fact that the Renegades have another and perhaps harder game scheduled for tomorrow evening, when they aro to meet California Polyfech at San Luis Oblapo. Cal. Poly, of course, Is not a member of the valley conference, but the fact that the Han Luis boys are rated above the San Joaquln Jaysees this season makes it highly important for the Renegades to make the best showing possible on their coastward excursion. Late Combination One of the combinations most frequently used by Coach Peterson in scrimmage this week Included Barrett und Mulvana, forwards; Bcnton, oentcr, and Hawkins and Purtle guards. This outfit contains most of the players who have been considered varsity regulars to dale, with some alteration In the warmly contested forward berths. Another .quintet comprises Stemen und Fisher, guards; Heber, center, and Harrell and Voorhles, forwards. It would bo hard to call this a "second" string, since Harroll and Voor- hles have put In so much or more time than any other of the Renegade forwards In the conference games. Flaher Is a guard of the first water, one who Just became eligible slnco tho beginning of the new semester. .Stemen lends altitude to the defense, having formerly played center.
