THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIA!*, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11,1933 SPORTS RENEGADES VICTORS OVER TAFT FIVE IN CAGE THRILLER HERE O UT of the last hectic mlnutea of a basketball game that reproduced all the livelier moments of a good street brawl came victory for the Bakersfleld Junior College Renegades over Taft J. C., 40 to 37, In a crucial game of the Central California Conference series'hero last night. Coach Peterson's Renegades now top the conference pile with four straight victories, while the \Vest Side Cougars, undefeated until last night, now trail In second place. It was a rlp-roarln' battle from start to finish with two Individuals, Stone, Taft centor, and Purtler Balcersfleld guard, flashing Into the foreground more brilliantly than all the* rest of the fireworks put together. tyuch of the second half was a Uuel between these boys, who exchanged basket for basket In finish that left the game to be decided by n single toss. The crowd, the largest In attendance at a court encounter here this season, took up the battle vocally and created a din that onco caused iKeferee Bryant to stop tho game until ordor was restored. Taft had an exceptionally large and vociferous representation. • Stone Stars After a somewhat tentative start, the Renegades started clicking: and toward the end of the first half were leading, 17 to 9. Then Mr. Stone went to work, sending one swlsher after another through the net from the east sideline, and the half-way respite only after the Cougars had cut the Bakersfleld lead to two points, 17 to 15. The second half started with a ml- Tior explosion. A free shot pave the Hciiegadcs a. momentary advantage, then Stone and Purtle made their Initial exchange of the period. Hawkins, stellar Bakersfleld guard, went out on fouls with the Renegades still only two points ahead, and when Barrett, regular forward, followed him to tho bench later by the same route the prospects for a Bakersfleld victory weren't promising. Taft was trailing by one or two points until, with only a minute to play, Thorpe sank the bucket that put the Cougars ahead. Tho score stood M4 to 36 In favor of Taft when Harrell of Bakersfleld was given two free throws 'on a personal foul. He sank one of them. A moment later a technical foul was called on Brazas of «Taft for delaying the game, and Purtle sank another free throw to tie tho count. Voorhles Scores Voorhles, who had replaced Barrett ns forward for Bakersfleld, rung up the goal that gave the Renegades their final margin of victory. Next to Purtle, Barrett was the most effective performer for Bakersfield. He played one of the best Frames he has turned In this season. Hawkins and Harrell were up to standard, and Fisher made the best of a.bad job when he was called upon to keep the ball away from men a head taller than himself In the final minutes. Eiland, Taft guard, gave Stone excellent support for the "West Slders. Though he called the game closer than either the Taft or Bakersfleld boys were accustomed to, Referee Bryant was credited with an excellent job of officiating and will be employed by Coach Klenholz of Taft for the return game to be played between tho Renegades and Cougars at Taft.

Sir Malcolm Campbell's hopes of bettering his own world's land speed record of 263 miles an hour rests entirely upon the delicacy and sensitiveness of his right foot. The lightness of a woman's touch combined with the skill of a fa mous surgeon Is how Sir Malcolm must operate the big Cooper throt tie pedal which whips Bluebird's 2600 horsepower motor Into action. He dares not as the saying Is, "step on the gas" during the 4-mlle approach to the measured mile—ho must gently, ever so gently, give the monster ton machine her head. Bluebird's engine will have to be turning over at 3000 revolutions a minute as he enters the measured mile If he Is to better lost year's speed. It Is a delicate operation, the lifting of the motor to that speed. If he puts his foot hard down tho enormous power of the engine will spin the wheels and rip the threads, no thicker than a dime, from the tires. Why doesn't he use heavier tread on his tires,' you ask. Simply because of th« fact that the centrifugal force of wheels revolving 2500 times a minute would hurl heavier tread from the tires In a moment. Has to Stop Sir Malcolm's task Is not over when he has crossed the timing strip that lies across tho end of the official course. He's got to stop 'the car. All the ordinary motorist has to do to stop the car, even at 70 miles an hour is to remove the foot from the accelerator and slam on the brakes. But Sir Malcolm dare not. If ho took his foot from tho accelerator suddenly tho car would fold up like an accordion. Lee Bible, who drove the Triplex special, the last American contender for the speed title In 1929, Is'believed to_ have lifted his foot suddenly. Tho en'glne, acting as an enormous brake, turned tho car over and over and smashed It to bits In the twinkling of an eye. Bible was killed. "Gently Does It" So Campbell, as soon as he crosses the line, will gently lift his foot from the throttle. Not until the speed has dropped to a mere 100 miles an hour can he safely apply his brakes. At higher speed tho brake shoes would melt and probably lock the wheels. It will take a distance of nearly six miles to bring the car to a standstill. This means that the intrepid Englishmen, despite his terrific speed, must keep a careful check" of his position at all times. If he should begin deceleration a second or two later than he should, nothing could prevent his dashing Into the sea at the end of the course. Vibration of Car Sir Malcolm's task of accelerating or decelerating is magnified by the tremendous vibration of the car. both from the motor and the bumps on the sand. If his foot should slip off the pedal when he is' traveling 200 miles an hour or better, little short of a miracle could save him from a crackup. Yet he doesn't wear any special shoes with patented gripping soles, but Just the ordinary ones he wears around the hotel.

De- glane won first 17:24; George second, 1:54). BY CHESTER HOKTON GOLF'S GREATEST TEACHER (Copyright John V. Dlllo Co.) When the head holds still, and does so with no conscious effort to keep It In one place, which effort becomes determination and hence takes the mind nway from 'the business of stroking the ball, the action of the shoulders as the club swings through the ball area Is vastly different. First, the shoulder-rotation Is smooth and rhythmic. Second- 1}', there Is no effort to hit with the shoulders, which hitting Is bad for the foil shot. In the manner of swinging which we havo been discussing, the arms and shoulders flow with the club. This Is vastly different from the pulling) pushing, lunging, pressing effort so common among golfers. Swinging as directed hero, the club Is given expression, The swing Is a thing to, Itself. 1 The ball la stroked away because It Is where It Is, not because you hit It yourself. You swing the club; that makes the exertion an art. NOTE: Have you made your "33" practice olub? You need with It Mr. Morton's special Instruction on the drive.

CARNERA KNOCKS OUT ERNIE SCHAAF WITH TAP IN THIRTEENTH By ALAN GOULD Allocated Prei> Sportl Editor TVTEW YORK, Feb. 11.—To the strange and baffling career of Prlmo •^ Camera, the big heavo-and-maul man of tho heavyweights, today belonged a l.'i-round knockout victory over blond Ernie Sehaaf of Boston and, as a probable consequence, a return match with Jack Sharkey for tho heavyweight championship of the world. If It was all a calculated huslncDs, as many suggested in advance and felt that a dull, colorless fight confirmed, the jeering capacity crowd of 20,000 suddenly was furnished an astonishing sight by the apparent utter collapse of Sehaaf after being tapped lightly in the face by a left jab early in the thlr- " " " the t- <*>- RING ECHOES (Assncialed Pro* Leased Wire) NEW YORK.—Prlmo Camera, Italy, knocked out Ernie Sehaaf, Boston (13); Adolph Heusnr, Germany, outpointed Hurry Ebbets, Brooklyn (10).

P.)— Barney Ross, Chicago contender for the world lightweight championship, and Tommy Grogan of Omaha, Neb., have been signed by Promoter Frankle Harmon for a 10-round bout February 20. Playing their second home game on consecutive nights, the Bakersfleld Junior College Renegades will meet tho California Polytech quintet of San Luis Oblspo here this evening. It is a return engagement, the Renegades having won from the San Luis aggregation, 30 to 18, over on the coast last Saturday. The game will be started at 8 o'clock, following a preliminary tilt between tho Bakorsfleid High School varsity and tho Bakersfleld Athletic Club. Tho California Polymen hold a decision over Taft J. C., the team that gavo the Renegades such a whale of a battle last night, and are out to show that they simply had an off night last week. The starting lineup for Cal. .Poly will probably Include Wallace and Oliveras, forwards; Enberg, high point man against the Renegades week, centor; anil Ulas and A r erblan, guardH. *teenth round. Sluggish from start and conspicuously unconscious at tho finish, Sehaaf toppled back from Prime's blow, sat down a bit bewildered and then after a few seconds' meditation he crun> pled in a heap in tho resin. After defying frantic efforts to revive him In his corner, Ernie was lugged out of the ring, Ironlcallr enough, by Sharkey and two policemen. A half-hour later he was taken for examination to the nearby Polyclinic Hospital, suffering, according to tho statement of his own and the boxing commission's doctor, from •> "slight concussion." In No "Danger" There, a short time afterward, h* was reported to have regained consciousness, to be resting comfortably and In no danger. If it wasn't, as many critics Insisted, one of the best "acts" the prize ring has known In many a day, It was very dramatic and also disconcerting to those at the ringside who were bored by 12 slow, lumbering rounds and In no way impressed by the poke that put Ernie on the floor for the first time and "out," -while Referee Billy (Glover) Cavanaugh, boxing coach at West Point, counted ten, 51 seconds after the start of their last round. A Light Tap Tho left that put Schaaf on th* floor, for the first and only time, wan nowhere near as robust as some of tho clumsy wallops Camera had landed earlier and with much earnestness. Nevertheless, there was blond Ernie on the floor, apparently quit* dead to the world; there was the manifest alarm of all his handlers, tho police, tho doctors, and the trip to the hospital. Most of the crowd remained for fully 15 minutes, arguing and Jeering, equally as baffled as the rlngslders as to whether to accept the developments at their face value. COX IS LEADING TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 11. (A.
