THE SUN, BALTIMORE, SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 26, 1944 Schoolboy Gaels Capture South Atlantic Unlimited Basket-Ball Title PAGE 20 FOREST A. C. , BOWS BY 33-24 Adam Hats' Five Takes 130 Crown Arcadia Wins Kv R. r, ELMER, JR. The Schoolboy Gaels, presenting a spring preview of next winter's Mount St. Joseph varsity basketball team, gave their prep-school rage rival something to think about through the hot summer months last night at Cross Street Hall bv raiilv turning back a strong Forest Park A. C. quintet. 33 to 24. to win the South Atlantic A. A. unlimited championship. This, the top attraction of a trio of title-deciding tussels, found the Gaels treating a full house to a smooth exhibition of topflight basket ball, in which a pair of newcomers. Lou Reich and Leo Del-cher. meshed perfectly with veterans Paul Gordon. Tony Lipton and George Eikenberg. . Victors Gain Early Lead Finding many loopholes in the Forester zone-defense, the victors raced off to a 10-3 first quarter advantage, and were always on top from 8 to 10 points the rest of the wav. The losers a complete draft of Forest l'ark ' High's 1943-44 cage combine, attempted to offset St. Joe's superior passing and cutting game, by popping from the outside, but not until late in the third quarter were they able to fashion any semblance of a sustained scoring drive, which came too late. It was here that Mac Rosenthal, three-year veteran stepped into the breach with a cluster of layups that brought the Green and Gray to within a 23-14 striking range, but youngsters Reich and Deleher went back into action for the Gaels to urap up the contest. Arcadia Wins Easily Arcadia A. A. and Adam Hats captured the 115 and 130 pound class title, respectively, in the triple header hardwood action vhich got under way at 7.30. The Arcadians had no trouble in dusting oil fatonsville A. C. by a 35-13 count, while Adam Hats snared the 130-pound tiara with a convincing 26-14 triumph over Salad King, a collection of junior varsity players from Forest Park High. Tom Curley drew down top scoring honors for Gus Williams' Arcadia quintet with eight field goals, good for 16 points. The little curly headed guard dropped one-handers in from all corners of the floor to pace the red-shirted victors to a 12 9 advantage and a lopsided, 23-4. second half margin. Bill Vaeth sparked the losers with 6 counters. Adam Hats Uses Height Adam Hats employed its superior height to best advantage in downing the spirited Salad King entry, with Jim McCubbin sparking the offensive on five baskets from the floor. Bill Getzen-tlanner. a promising Forest Park freshman who is switching to St. Paul's next fall, paced Salad King with four field goals, all from the outside. The Hatters led, 12-6, at the intermission. Rating oft last night's work, Mount St. Joseph's should again prove a tough customer along the prep boards. In Reich and Deleher the Gaels have a pair of sophomore youths who've come up the St: Joe farm system via St. Martin's and know their way around the basket-ball floor. Both shoot well on or olT balance, feed brilliantly and figure to give Lipton and Eikenberg a real boost. Following the games. Andy Miller., chairman of the tournament, presented certificates to the three championship teams. UNLIMITED CHAMPIONSHIP SCHOOLBOY GAELS rOKEST PK A: C o r. r ' o. v. t.

Track fail. GIBBERISH -By- C M. GIBBS SLOULD IT HAPPEN by some chance that the Athletics fail to win the pennant this season and thereby provide Connie Mack with one more gonfalon he hopes to win, it won't be due to lack of managerial aid. In addition to Connie the Ath-letlci have -seven ex-manageri In the ensemble. Among the coaches who have managed is Chief Bender, Lena Blackburn, Earl Brucker and Earl Mack. In the playing ranks are Woody Wheaton, Hal Wagner and Lou Parissc. With so much piloting talent on hand Mack shouldn't have a thing to do except report for bjdl games, sit on the bench and wave his score card and watch the pennant bein? gradually folded away by his ball club Up to this point the A.'s haven't had an opportunity to do much of anything except engage in gymna sium squats and bends. So the boys are raring to get outside in the sun and make hay, so to speak. This goes for the seven ex-mana gcrs, too. So, If the weatherman in kind, they'll toss the results of their gymnasium and hotel-lobby training at the Orioles this after noon. o o New Stuff THE GIANTS are not going to lose their first baseman, Phil Wein traub, in the draft after all. Weintraub comes out of the examination with a distinctive note too. I mean you have become accustomed to the usual reason for ball player deferment, the usual ailments. But Weintraub comes up with a brand new ailment. "Loose par ticles m the elbow. He'll have to keep an eye or that joint. o o No News BALL WRITERS with the Brook lyn Dodgers," hibernating at Bear Mountain, are complaining about a lack of news That situation, of course, was due to the fact that Branch Rickey was elsewhere Branch has a flair for making some sort of news. It may be only an oration in double talk. But it will be something to fill the gap o o Wotta Gag- ONE OF THE lighter items sent out by the National League's Bill Brandt suggests that there will be more life on the National League's base lines this season. This comes about because of the return of Pepper Martin to the active list That's a lough spot in which to place an old gaffer like Pepper, It's true that his 26 swipes in 1933 hasn't been approached in the rsational since then. But the bloke is 40 years old. and if any running he can do will liven up the National, then the, groundkeepers are going to have a lot of work cleaning the cobwebs oil the base lines this season o o Griff Scores THEN THERE is the story about uwner uiark Griffith, in the stands watching his Senators, and his pleasure at the playing of Louis Miarez at third. He .called others attention to his work. He even remarked finally mat ne reminded him of Ossie Bluege the way he played around tne bag. Ami it developed finally that it naa oeen his Manager Bluege play ing there all the time. In any event the important fact is that while he may have mistaken the identity of his player he at least recognized talent. Let that be a lesson to you. o o Relief Gone ANOTHER BLOW comes to the Yanks in the announcement that Pitcher Johnny Murphy has really decided to stick to business instead ot playing ball this season For a decade Johnny has been one of the game's top ranking relief pitchers. This is a season when fuelling reuer may be more neces sary than usual. uui wnether it Is or not the anks are losing a real valuable hurler if Johnny sticks to his job wmi a cnemicai concern U1L DODDS failed in his effort to establish a new two-mile mark me omer night, but that takes nothing away from his brillanop ie remains the Mr. Bis of indoor track for the winter season nf 1943-44.

A. Eastern Sectional basket ball title with 60-to-53 triumph over Ohio State's Big Ten court kings at Madison Square Garden. Pulling away in the last half. Temple won third place with a 55 to 35 decision over Catholic University. In qualifying to meet the West ern winner for the N. C. A. A. title in the Garden next Tuesday, Dart mouth held command the entire route except briefly at the start and midway of the final period. When the Buckeyes moved ahead, 44-43, the Indians from New Hamp shire brought the crowd of 15,457 to its feet with a drive that carried them to their 17th consecutive tri umph and their 20th victory in 21 starts this season, Pourt In 16 Points Brindley sent Dartmouth away flying by sinking his first three Rhots and before the teams left the floor at the half with the Eastern Ave leading, 28-22, the lanky cen ter had poured in 16 points. He added five more field goals and two free throws in the second half, al though on the. bench the first four minutes. Brindley's 13 field goals gave him a new N. C. A, A. record. topping by one the mark set by Hull, of Ohio Stale, in 1939, and matched by Milo Komemch, of Wy oming last year. After trailing for most of the first half, Ohio State closed within three points several times before they finally got on top with nine and one-half minutes remaining Then Harry Leggat and Brindley went to work again to leave the mid-Westerners in the lurch Risen Begins Late Arnold Risen, Ohio State's 6- foot 8-inch center, scored only 6 points in the first half but struck for 15 in the last period to lead the Buckeyes with 21. Don Grate aii-uie ien iorwaru, was neiu m ii t. - m c - 1 1 1 1 J check with 7. In the consolation, the first half was a give-and-take affair, with the score tied six times before Temple pulled away to a 24-21 lead on the fine shooting of Jim Joyce. Temple, however, completely controlled the final chapter as the Cardinals missed repeatedly and failed to stop the lanky Temple sharpshoot ers with either a zone or man-for- man defense.

The Americans are to be matched against a Canadian army team, and the game was scheduled for July 20, second front and other military considerations permitting. It will mark the first appearance of American cricketers at Lord's since 1921, when a touring Philadelphia eleven played there. Mitchell Leads U. S. A. Since the. pitch at Lord's to American players who first attempted the game just a year ago would find a parallel in the United States only if Public School 49 were invited to the Rose Bowl the American players are appro priately jubilant. Among the American players is Major John.R. Mitchell, of Balti: more and College Park. He is executive officer at an Eighth Air Force Fortress base which claims the cricket championship for the European theater of operations of the United States Army, on the basis of a victory last year over the only other army cricket team in the theater. All the pldyers are officers at the same base. Issues Invitation The others are Capt. John M. Puryear, of .Hartsville, Ala., who is also coach; Capt. John F. O'Con-nell, of Holyoke, Mass., manager; Capt. Alvin E. Podwojski. of Cleve land; Capt. Paul E. Landt. of An mington, Ala.; Capt. James D. Buford. of Holly Springs. Miss.: Lieut. Robert Jerue, of St. Paul, Minn.; Lieut. Jean A. Rolf, of Lin coin, Neb.; Capt. Norman H. Scott, of Los Angeles; Major James H. Proier, of Schoharie, N. Y.; Major Vernon G. Buegler, Seattle; Major Harrison V. Peterson, Detroit Capt. Howard E. Furnas, also of Detroit, and Lieut. Robert J. Lynch, of Atlanta. Sir Pelham Warne wartime secretary of the Marleybone Cricket Club, issued the invitation for the American and Canadian meeting in communications to Captain O'Connell, the American manager, and Capt. Stanley Fidler, of Edmonton, Alberta, a headquarters officer, who has undertaken to assemble a Canadian eleven. Sir Pelham said he has always been interested in American and Canadian cricket. He took English teams to North America twice, in 1897 and 1898. and still remembers the reception accorded them in Baltimore in 1897. "We not only had wonderful entertainment, and marvelous food, but one of the newspapers reported that the hearts of Baltimore ladies went pitapat at the sight of us. Lovely ladies they were." Veteran Players Some of the Canadians Captain Fidler expects to have on his side are veteran cricketers. None of the Americans ever played cricket until last year. Capt. O'Connell said they watched English players on a village green near their Fortress base, wondered what the game was about, and undertook to learn. They suddenly found themselves playing. One of the two baseball diamonds at the flying field was restored to its original status as a cricket green, equipment was obtained, and challenges went out. They met seven English teams; then discovered that another flying field was also playing cricket, and upon meeting and conquering that eleven, ran up the banner denoting their theater championship. The losing team was coached by Erroll Holmes, one of the all time greats of the English test match cricket. The American champions begin pract'ee next week for their new season. BIRDS MEET A'S TODAY Travel To Frederick For Sea son's Opening Exhibition By C. M. GIBBS For better or worse, the Orioles will travel to Frederick today to engage Connie Mack's Athletics in an exhibition combat. Neither club has had enouijn work as yet to be in any sort of shape for a ball game But there is a feeling that the best spring training for baseball is the playing of baseball. This is true only in the mental angle of the game. On the physical aide there isn't much training except for the batlerymen. A's Trimmed Coast Gua'd The Athletics opened their ex hibition activities by defeating the Curtis Bay Coast Guard team yes terday. Just what this may do to the morale of the Coast Guards men isn't certain. Possibly they will be able to bounce back. In any event. Manager Thomas will lead his Birds Into Frederick j today If nothing happens to prevent. They have memories of last spring's invasion of the delightful Maryland town to play Syracuse. Snow fell only a part of the time upon that occasion. No snow is anticipated today. The Bird pilot will probably start Sam Lowry on the mound, and Sherman Lollar will be back of the plate. Guy Coleman will also get a shot at the batters. Coleman has given the Oriole hitters some good workouts by throwing everything at them. Coleman Has Shown Promise Although only 5 feet 9 inches in height and weighing 160 pounds. Coleman has shown a varied assort ment of knucklers, dips and bends. His fast ball isn't bad and seems alive. Of course he has been throwing against batters who were trying to trim their sights on a ball after a winter's hiatus. In the Bird lineup for today Thomas has placed Howard Moss in me lounn spot, generally Known as the cleanup position. In taking over George Staller's old slot. Moss will be following a lad who last season did his part toward helping the Flock do surprising things. Monaco To Lead Off Bias Monaco has been given the leadofT position, while Pat Riley is down for the second slot. Riley turned in a .320 hitting job at 11a-gcrstown last season, and has looked well in practice. Stan Benjamin plays and hits third. After Moss comes Bob Lat-shaw, lively first baseman, and Felix Mackiewlcj; and John Coak- ley will alternate in center. Fred PfeifTer, playing short, hits ahead of Sherman Lollar, first string catching rookie. Game starts at 2.30 P. M. o o Sunshine Shots Got outside yesterday and made up for lost time, at Gilman school. o -II Billy Dornbush, service bound, packs more power than any of the rookies. O 1) Long drill had the period put on it by a five-inning intra-squad clash. Pilot Thomas pitched for both sides. Also umpired all plays Didn't do himself any harm either with decisions. ) o President George Reed and Busi ness Manager Herb Armstrong graced the bleacher stands. Also will grace todav's Frederick trek, o o If Mack's clouters become too bloodthirsty today . Manager Thomas may also use Harry Sol lenberger or Frank Rochevot on the hill. The latter has had a slight kink in his throwing arm. Back of the plate Harry Imhoff the promising Moun. St. Joe lad will likely swing into action for part of the game. The lad has defi nite promise. o o Next Thu ;day tne rlock is scheduled versus Washington at Camp Meade. Saturday and Sunday the Giants come here.

MATfffCrif Sports Editor BASEBALL magnates smiled a bit the other day when word came from Washington that men over 26 would not be drafted until the supply of those under that figure had been exhausted. It sounded like a break, especially for this season. Now it develops that men over 26 Classified A-l will be called on schedule, and those not so classi fied will find the under-20 year old barrel empty at an early date. In other words, any respite will mean a matter of days. This, at least, is true in Maryland, and probably will be the same in other States. Although some magnates were crying the blues a couple of months ago, all seem to be eager to get go ing and doing the best they can with the manpower available. This is as it should be. Paseball is a part of the American way of life, and no one wants it stopped as long as it does not interfere with the war Prospects ONE THING, and a refreshing one too, has been brought about by the draft. You don't hear this one and that one going around claim ing pennants. Even the cellar dwellers are not claiming eighth place. The coming season will be one of those things in which anything can happen, and probably will Continued drafting of players will cause frequent changes in lineups The team that was all set one day will find a key man exchanging a baseball suit for a service uniform the next. The war will play an important part in deciding the pennant races The strong Yankee team has been cut down to the size of the others The Cardinals In the National are just another club. And so It is in the International No manager would attempt at this stage to announce his probable lineup for opening day. It all adds up to considerable un certainty, and greater interest should be the result. titt Record HOCKEY FANS will have three more opportunities io see me Coast Guard Yard hockey team in action at Iceland. The Sailors will play the Philadelphia Falcons here tonight, the New York Rovers Wednesday and Boston Olympics Sunday. One game will be played out of town, the Falcons entertain ing the Cutters Saturday night in the Quaker City. When the Olympics are met, fans probably will be seeing many of the Coast Guard stars for the last time until after the war. Some of them have received their orders and others expect them momentarily. They are shoving off for duty elsewhere. It probably means ice hockey here will carry on at a much slower pace. Practically all of the Cutter players will be sent from the local base by the end of the year. It means there will be no mass concentration of stars for long periods. The Cutters won the United States amateur hockey championship last year, and are on the way to another triumph in an unprece dented performance in the title ?eries now under wav. Seven SEVEN games have been played by lhe Curtis Bay outfit in the championship round thus far. and all have bren chalked up in the win column. The Cutters have scored 57 goals, and the opposition 12. Some series arc decided on a total-score basis. It would be too bad if that system had been employed in this one. The going may become tougher during the last week of action. The Rovers and Olympics are planning to grab a few players from the New- York Rangers and Boston Bruins now that those teams are out of the race in the biatime circuit. tiCrCr This An That A SURPRISINGLY large number of letters have been received dur ing the week regarding the at tempted comeback of Harry Jeffra. A majority of the letter writers agree Harry has made a remark able showing thus far, and has an equal chance to punch his way back to the featherweight cham pionship. which he once held. A few doubt if he will go that far. and time only will tell which section has the right dope, Against the present crop of fight ers I would lean toward the group holding the opinion Jeffra will make the grade again. Tomorrow night in the Coliseum he will swing into action against Lou Salica. another former cham pion. who is trying to come back. Babe Sharkey and Strangler Lewis will go at it again Tuesday night on th mat at the Coliseum. Sharkey, in case you are not up on your wrestling, is the current world champion, placed there by Maryland and now recognized as the boss of the bone benders by other States. Local figure skaters will take part in the annual ice show beginning tomorrow night at the Sports Centrs. These events have been worthwhile, and the progress shown by local devotees of this sport has been remarkable. They prove to be correct in their daily practices. The old adage patience is a virtue. Ed Hyde. loc3l sportsman, writes from a Pacific base where he is serving Uncle Sam: "These Pacific islands as Hollywood presents them and as I see them sure tell two different stories. All the so-called beauties must be up in the mountains hiding." Do you know that Only two American League clubs have finished with a percentaae of more than .700? Yanks (1927). .714: T1939), .702; Athletics (1931), .704. JOE M'CARTHY LIKES SAVAGE Newark Infielder Expected To Fill Johnson's Shoes Thumbnail Preview Yankees Pitching Excellent:. Catching Fair. Infirld Good. Outfield Fair. Baiting Good. Atlantic City, N. J.. March 25 (T). Manager Joe McCarthy of bast-ball's world champion has no illusions about his 1944 Yankees. but he is hot on Don Savage, the young 4 F infielder coming up from the Newark club. Says Joe: "It's hard to tell what will happen this year. Ail I can do is to take the players who are on hand and hope for the best. On his record. Savage looks like a good bet. I'm glad that we have him to fill in for Johnson," assure McCarthy. When Maria Joe goes out on the limb for a player, he'a worth check ing and Savage is doubly so be cause of his 4 F classification. Played A$ Semi-Pro$ As a matter of fact, succeeding Bill Johnson seems to be Savage s lifework. Don has been a year behind last year's rookie-of-the year all through his diamond career. First. Don played against Bill when Johnson was a pitcher for Glen Ridge in the Essex county (N. J.) semi-pro league. Later. Savage was Johnson's teammate on the Essex All-Star team. After . that Don followed Bill in Butler. Pa.; Akron, Norfolk. Augusta and Newark. Now. the 6-foot 180-pound fellow New Jerseyan is expected to fill Johnson's shoes at third for the Yanks. Follows Tradition Besides maintaining his record of following Johnson wherever he goes. Savage will be keeping alive a tradition that Newark shortstops make good third basemen. Johnson played the No. 6 position before he reported to the Yanks. So did Red Rolfe, rated by McCarthy as one of the greatest hot-corner guardians he has ever seen. Making infielders over has always been one of Marsa Joe's specialties. Evidently he thinks he can do the same thing with former Shortstop Savage. Hits Long Ball Don admits to 25 j'ears of age. is a right-handed batter and. ac cording to his records, he hits a long hall. For Newark, last season. Savage hit .262, but his 16 home runs ranked him second to the International League leader. Shovel Kobesky. of the Buffalo club. Don also batted in 68 runs for the Bears and stole 22 bases, which is fast for a big man. He s 4-F, because of a diabetic condition which kept him out of baseball in 1942. He has been play ing pro ball since 1938. How does he feel about the Yanks and the 1944 season? Well. Don has lived in Bloomfield and Nutley. N. J., just across the river from Broadway, all his life. He has always been inside the Yankee chain since he started to make a living from baseball. Nevar In Stadium But neither Savage, his wife, nor their infant son have ever been inside the vast stadium in the Bronx. "I've been trying to reach it for seven years." he smiles. "I expect to get there and hope to stay awhile." Time will tell. A's Top Coast Guard Nino Hy iWTo-S Count Frederick. March 25 At Gathering strength as they rolled along, the Philadelphia Athletics defeated the Curtis Bay Coast Guard nine in their first exhibition game. 8 to 3. here today. The veteran Al Simmons, not on the active player list, but dreaming of a comeback, was the batting hero. His seventh inning single? broke a 3-3 tie and he drove across another run with a double in the eighth. He scored twice himself. Three rookies Fred Peeler. Jack McGillen and Carl Scheib twirled for the Macks, with Scheib getting credit for the win. The Coast Guards, managed by Dick Porter, had a half dozen former major league players in their lineup.
