BY MAURICE SHEVLLN (Picture on bach paf) One of the finest Chicago Golden Gloves teams ever assembled last night pounded out one of the most lopsided victories in SOears of Intercity competition with New York. A howling Stadium crowd and TV iignt tans uom coast to coast who saw part of the brilliant show by way of the American Broadcasting company's network, witnessed almost complete destruction of the Eastern squad. Chicago racked up seven vic tories in the eight encounters, the first six of them in a row.

Reynolds, Shaw Heroes Head Coach Freddy Case- rios' boys, all graduates of the recent Tournament of Cham pions in the Stadium and six of them winners of the greatly prized championships in the Finals, started their trium phant march with a pair of knockouts, both of them in the televised portion of the card. These heroes were Tommy Reynolds, the bantamweight champion of Kansas City by way of St. Louis, where he at tends school, and Joe Shaw, Reynolds' Kansas City welter weight team mate and also a St Louisian who last year turned the same trick for Chi cago in his intercity bout in Madison Square garden and also against the Irish in the Stadium. Pell Prevents Sweep Ernest Terrell, Chicago light heavyweight champion, took the third bout, on points. Er nest McClendon, Chicago mid dleweight, won the fourth on points and Brown McGhee, Chicago eatherweigjit the also by decision.

Then Billy Braggs, lightweight, won the sixth on points. Then New York showed its hole card, its good old. ace, Albert Pell, the. Brooklyn butcher who last year won the Intercity bantamweight cham pionship in Madison Square Garden. Pell, a southpaw, out smarted Pat Moore, Chicago flyweight from Kenosha and Milwaukee, and got a well deserved decision tho Moore scored heavily at times and always was a threat.

Moore was a substitute for Jimmy Jackson, Minneapolis cham pion, who is ill. Terrell Conies' Close The eighth and last bout, for the heavyweight crown, went to Joe Hemphill of Rock- ford on a decision after he had battered big Lee Williams, Boston electronics technician, but couldn't put him down, let alone out That, by the way, was the situation in which Terrell found himself in his clash with Ed Bramlett, 21 year old Bronx factory worker and an infan try sergeant for three years in Austria. The 17 yeaivold Far ragut High school boy, hit Bramlett with everything he Continued on page 2, col, 2J MOON MULLINS rmrr1 I TCI i I heard that Stuart said: "They'll think Mickey Mantle's pay is peanuts when I'm thru So I do strike out a lot What difference does it make how you go out?

Billy Klaus, native of Spring Grove, I1L, was the principal tormentor for Joe Dahlke in the five run fourth inning for Boston hitting a bases loaded single.

But he's no busher. DICK STUART, a right hand -slugger, 24 and 200 pounds, will talk at the drop of a foul ball. You start with this question: Dick, wasn't it 66 homers you hit for Lincoln Neb J. last year?" "Sixty-eight," corrected Stuart "Don't forget: the. two I hit in the playoffs." Does Dick think he'll some day break Babe Ruth's major league record of 60 homers in a season? 44 1'U give it a try, except the way the Pittsburgh park is, I'd have to hit lots on the Could Dick hit 30 homers if he stayed with Pittsburgh this season? "More.

It seems the higher the league I'm in, the better I hit, because the pitchers give me more good stuff. Of course, against better pitchers I'll strike out more', too. I uppercut the ball a lot; sometimes IH hit a home run on the same pitch that struck me out the last time up." Will Pittsburgh keep Stuart this season? 44 If they don't, it's not my mistake." DOES STUART, always swing for homers? Sure, I'm going for everything or nothing. The only way 111 make is to force my way on as home run hitter, because I'm not much as a fielder. Fly balls some fielders'd get in their pockets I have to take on a IJow did Stuart get into baseball? Just started.

Chicago's Catholic Youth organization won the Golden Gloves novice team championship as their fighters swept to a succession of spirited victories in last night's final bouts in the stadium. The novice matches preceded and followed the Intercity bouts be tween the champions of Chicago and New York. In a brief acceptance talk, the Rt Rev. Edward J. Kelly, director of the C.

Y. stressed the contribution which amateur boxing is making toward the healthy develop ment of Chicago's youthful athletes. The C.Y.O. fighters had gone into the final night of competition with 15 points against 8 for their closest pursuers, the Joe Louis club boxers. These points had been acquired in the North and South side sectional preliminaries.

Pedro Reyes, 112 pounder, moved out swiftly to increase the C.Y.O. advantage by beating Joe Skipper of Midwest gym in the opening bout of the evening. Stunitsch Cinches It Lawrence Stunitsch followed for the C.Y.O. with a victory over Norman Flynn of the Gary C.Y.O. in the 118 pound division.

That clinched it On the basis of 3 points for a victory, the Chicago C.Y.O. score soared to 21, putting the local team beyond reach of any rivaL The fighters from other clubs brought the program into balance as Nick Torres of Twin City, Ray Smalenskas of St. Rita High school and Wally De Rose of the Gary Y.M.C.A. scored at 126, 135 and 147 pounds, respectively. De Rose Stops Dotson Torres took a decision over Arthur Lee of Hopkins park and Smalenskas did likewise over Tom Rosa of the Twin City Boys' club.

De Rose It marked the fifth time in 10 years that the Giants had to postpone a game in Phoenix on account -of the weather. The last time the club was unable to train in Phoenix was March 11, three years ago, when a dust storm blew darkness over the Valley of the Sun. They lost two days in 1952 on account of rain and two days back in 1949. The New York Yankees trained in Phoenix in 1951 and lost one day which makes it six days of inclement weather in the training season in Phoenix in 11 years.

Kama ChT t. Brok57B at Kittat. CuclnsaC PUladeiFBia at Clcar- BY DAVID tChlraso Tribune press Service Sarasota, March 20 The relief pitching of Millard Pixie Howell, 37 year old right hander, was the single pleasant experience the White Sox encountered in losing to the Boston Red Sox, 9 to 4, this afternoon- Howell faced only seven batsman, walking Norm Zau-chin, in mopping up the final two innings after Boston had assaulted three Chicago rookie hurlers. One of those pitchers Starter Glen Rosen-baum will be among the five leaving tomorrow to join the Indianapolis farm club in Hollywood, Fla. Rosenbaum, 20, yielded three runs in the first inning as Gene Mauch doubled, Ted Williams walked, and Dick Gernert tripled.

Lopez Defends Rosenbaum Manager Al Lopez, how ever, wasn't critical of Rosenbaum. 44 He only gave up four hits in three innings," said Al. 44 1 think he'll 'make a major leaguer. The thing Glen now needs is lots of work in Indianapolis." Today's stint boosted to five the number of innings Howell has worked without yielding a hit. Dixie faced only nine batsmen in thru Innings against Detroit last Friday.

Leaving for the I i a n- apolis camp tomorrow, with Rosenbaum, will be Pitchers Barry Latman and Bob Hall, Catcher Sam Hairston, and Dick Ditusa, an infielder-out- fielder from Chicago's Austin And that he also has said: a 3 year old daughter.
