THE BAKERSFIELD CAL1FORNIAK, SATURDAY, FfeBRUARY 4, 1933 SPORTS MILE RECORD MAY BE BROKEN DURING N. Y. INDOOR TRACK MEET N By HENRY McLEMORE ' Unltid Prtii Stiff Corrcipendtnt I EW YORK, Feb. 4.—Although this department finds It a trifle difficult to grow excited over the sight of young men running around a track clad only In homely step-ins, wo plan to be on hand for the Millrose track and field games at Madison Square Garden tonight. We will be there for one Item and one Item only. It will not be the shotput, *whlch always reminds us of a man raising a Pullman window. Nor will it be the sprints,, which are over almost before they start, nor the broad Jump which Is always obscured by the droves of high hats who walk around wearing badges as big as« '• — 'cauliflowers. No, the Item we crave Is the Wanamaker mile. .It promises to be a lulu, a honey, with a thrill for every one of Its 6280 feet.. Experts believe the men who will go to the post In the Wanamaker compose the fastest field that ever matched strides at a mile. There has been some talk of the race producing the fastest Indoor mile for all time, which means that some of the boys believe one of the steppers will whirl around the Garden's ptno saucer In under 4:10. A mllo In that sort of time Is hard to believe. Yet, so was a. mile In 4:10 until about this time last year when Gene Venzke, then a high school boy, whirled around the bowl In that time. And before you scoff at those who suggest a mile under 4:10, please remember that at the end of his record breaking gallop, Venrko wasn't anywhere near exhausted. And he established his mark without much In the way of competition. Venzke Star Venzke will be In there tonight. Lined up against him will be a field capable of running his legs off. There'll bo Eric Ny, Sweden's crack inan at the distance: Glenn Cunningham, the Kansas University flash; Carl Coan, who like Venzke, Is a Pennsylvania U. man; Frank Crpwley of Manhattan, and nay Conger, the Nebraska veteran. You get some Idea of tho class of this field when you learn that all of them have turned, a mile In better than 4:15. And If 4:16 seems slow after tho talk ,of 4:10, please remember that when a fellow iirmdcs 1:20, .he's raising high dust. , la In Shape If 4:10 Is tied or bettered, we'd pick Venzke as the man to do It. The Pennsylvania flyer has proved he Is bark In shape. And another thing—Venzke probably wants to win n little more than tho others. Being a good loser, Gene hasn't said anything nhoul It, but you Just know his failure In the Olympic tryotits still Is fresh In his memory, and that he'll go the limit to make those critics who called him a "flash In the pan," regret their words.

Player by Wide Margin (Ijnittd rrcm Leated Wire) C HICAGO, Feb. 4.—By playing billiards 24 of his 36 years Welker Cochran of San Francisco has proved to be the first balkllne cue artist versatile enough to win the world's three cushion billiard championship. Cochran won the rich three rail prize by defeating Johnny Lsyton, Sedalla, Mo., In the final scheduled match of the 1033 tournament last night, !iO to 33 In 38 Innings. Using his soft, accurately timed shots that brought him International famo In the balkllne game, Cochran eased his way through tho throe cushion field with n final standing of eight victories and one defeat. Frank .Scovllle, Buffalo veteran, was the only player to beat Cochran. Sturdy vetetran that ho Is, Layton could not maintain the pace set by Cochran In tho final match. Consequently the Missouri veteran was cut out of his chance to win his eleventh three rail title, being relegated to a second place tie with young Jay B&ze- man of Vallejo, Calf. Each has six victories and three defeats. They will playoff for second and third honors Monday night. Profitable Victory By his victory Cochran Is assured of $4000 In salary, and $1000 cash prize, a diamond sttidcled medal emblematic of his championship and 15 per cent of the tournament gate receipts. Second place brings $2000 In salary, and $800 cash award and 14 per cent of the receipts. Cash prizes and percentages of the receipts are scaled down to tho remaining contestants according to standings. Winner Trails In the final game Cochrnn trailed Layton through the early Innings, tak- I Ing th" lead for the first time In the | tenth frame. A run of four put Cochran In front and he stayed there till tho finish. Cochran was In fine stroke, although tho match was not spectacular. He played his specialized soft stroke and his short angle shots to perfection. Kiyton was missing easy shots hy wide margins, and was plainly off his game. Cochran's forty-ninth point was a complicated eight cushion shot that left him In good position to score the last point easily.

SHACK CAGERS JLUB MELEE Jack's Shack and tho Bakcrsflcld Athletic Club quintet camo to blows In a basketball game that combined tho esthetic pleasures of a wrestling match and a mob riot at the local gymnasium last night. To make the upsettlngness of tho gamo complete, the Shack aggregation, which was playing Its first game as a unit, defeated the highly rated Athletics, 24 to 21. While tho Athletics were bouncing the ball off the ring all evening without being able to pVit It through, the Shack stars, Tiob Perry and Bryan Haworth, made tho most of comparatively fewer opportunities to their narrow margin of victory. keep A second game between these two teams would make an excellent draw- Ing card.

Last fall, a high tide, churned he- fore a northeaster, threw up curves at the north end of tho beach, and cut tho available runway from 11 to 9 miles. Now Sir Malcolm wants another tide to cut It bnrlc to 11 miles, so he can have five miles to get his big car started and five miles to stop It after ho flashes through the measured mile where his assault upon his own world's record of 253 miles an hour will be timed. Unless tho beach Is lengthened, Campbell may not be able to get top speed out of his reconditioned Bluebird, which he believes will make 300 miles an hour.

These various causes, regard- lens of the names you attach to them, often vanish when the hip action, which certainly dominates your body action, Is coordinated as I have outlined In these lessons. It nets down virtually to this: Withdraw your right hip directly back for tho back swing; move your hips toward the ball, or, more exactly, to a spot somewhat In front of tho ball, club head goes through, withdraw tho left hip directly back. These principles, you will note, do nol touch upon the theory of hlp-htttlng. Ther.o Is no hit from the hips In the golfing action. With your hlp.s you get yourself out of your own way.

And that's what the Dakersfleld High School basketball squads expect tonight when tho Mnrlcopa cagers breoze In from their corner of the county, which Is directly aouthwesf of here.
