22 SUNDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 13, 1938. PART II.J THE . SPORTS X-RAY ) BV BOB RAY You can look for plenty of action at Gilmore Stadium today when Whizzer White and the Pittsburgh. Pirates meet the Los Angeles Bulldogs, pride of this section's paid-to-play grid performers, in a rematch. ' The two elevens hooked up Armistice Day in Whizzer's home town, Colorado Springs, and the Bulldogs rudely spoiled Mr. White's planned triumphant return as a pro by knocking off the Pirates, 17-6. Today Whizzer, making his first football appearance on the Pacific Coast, and the Pirates Will be gunning for revenge. But Gus Henderson's Bulldogs are such a good ball club that Whizzer will have to be at his . best and he wa3 All-American at Colorado College last year ; to tumble the local prides. And today the Bulldogs won't be bothered by the 6000-foot altitude's rare atmosphere in which they performed at Colorado Springs. . The Bulldogs are out to show lip any and all teams connected with the National Professional League, from which the locals are barred, so you can look for plenty of fireworks. If you haven't seen the Bulldogs yet, you owe it to yourself to do so. The Henderson Hired Hands are a spectacular and efficient crew. Also, it should be a treat to pee the Whizzer, who is one Ail-American athlete that won himself a Rhodes scholarship, thus showing up a lot of folks who think dumbness start in or behind the line of scrimmage. LOU NOVA DEPARTS : When one of those streamliners pulls out of Los Angeles today, on it will be Lou Nova, the latest California heavyweight sensation. Nova made himself an overnight attraction ; in New York when he substituted for Bob Pastor in the Garden and knocked out that tough Finn, Gunnar Barlund. Barlund had made Buddy Baer yell quits and. was a heavy favorite, but Nova won every round and gave the Gunnar a terrific pounding before the referee stopped the fight. Nova is leaving for New York to start training for his match with Tommy Farr, the tough Welshman. A decisive victory ove Farr probably will give Lou a title snot with Joe Louis next year. "I. know I've improved a lot," naid Nova the other evening, "and I'm going to make the best of my opportunity. You can bet that I'll be in there pitching." ODDS OR ENDS Cubs or Bears, it's all the fame to Joe Gordon, whose, hitting helped the Yankees take . four straight from the Chicago ; Cubs in the World Series. Gor-idoh recently batted a 350-pound brown bear while hunting in Oregon . . . There were 15,-f00,000 fans who saw minor i league baseball games last season . . . Leo Miller, popular baseball official, has been named president of the Indianapolis ball club. He replaced Owner Norman A. Perry, who resigned as Indianapolis prexy after 10 years. Miller is known as a ' smart baseball man. He bought ; Inficlder Henry Majeski from ' Birmingham last August, heard he was to be drafted, so promptly sold him to a big league club ;for a $2500 profit. And Miller hasn't seen Majeski perform : yet . . . Morgan College, a No- gro institution in Baltimore, won its 53rd consecutive 'foot-' bal game last week when it de- featod North- Carolina Agricultural and Technical College, , 12-0 ... Princeton figures to have better luck on the football field next fall. The Tiger frosh recently handed the Yale year-: lings a 25-0 licking. SPORTS GOSSIP Jimmy Garrison is in line to box ' Lou Ambers in Buffalo next month. IJut first the Kansas City lightweight has a hot engagement with Georgie Crouch at the Olympic Tuesday night. Garrison decisioned Crouch recently in a sizzling fight and the rematch promises to lure the biggest Olympic gathering in many weeks . . . Local football fans are still talking about the sensational passing of "Billy the Kid" Pat- ; terson in Baylor's 35-2 rout of Loyola Armistice Day. I'd like to see some of those good Texas teams against better, local , competition meaning the Trojans and U.C.L A. . . . Rumors have it that Mike Jacobs will be the man behind the scenes when Henry Armstrong and Baby Arizmendi meet here again in January ... . Mike Belloise has started training at Roxie Eisen's Main Street gym. The former featherweight, whom New York's commission recognized as champion until Armstrong dumped him, fights Emilio Magana at the Legion Dec. 2 ... Some hot baseball is on tap for local .fans at Wrigley Field today where the Mexican All-Starw, unbeaten here, meet the Royal Giants, crack Negro nine, in a double-; Jiradcr that will draw close to 10,000 fans.

But a guy named Byron White went to Colorado College some four years ago and by the time he had received his sheepskin he was the most publicized football player since Red Grange. Byron will do his stuff for the edification of the local prole' tariat this afternoon, appearing at right halfback on the Pitts burgh Pirate pro team that meets the Los Angeles Bulldogs at Gilmore Stadium. AMAZING RECORD Byron was quite a lad his senior year at Colorado. My chum, George T. D a v i s , the pudgy pencil pusher and Stan ford die-hard, has gone to the trouble to compile a list of By ron's football achievements for the season of 1937. I have gone to the trouble of using the scis sors on Georgie's story: Total points scored: 122. Most total yards, rushing and forward passing: 1596 yards, nignest average per game. rushing and forward passing: yards. Highest average gain per play. rusning and forward passing: 7.13 yards. Most net yards gained by rushing: 1121 yards, Highest average net gain per game by rushing: 140 yards. Second highest per attempted forward passes: 11.5 yards, (Woitkoski of Fordham led na tion with 12.33 per play.) Second in kicking: Averaged per kick, 43.52 yards. (Pingel, Michigan State, was first with 43.SS per kick.) mnm in forward passes: Attempted, 43; completed, 21 4S.8 per cent. BLOOD AND GORE The Pirates have a lot of other guys, too, including the one and only Johnny Blood, but every body who's out at Gilmore today will be staring at Byron, Mr. White will have to be at his best today to shoot par golf with the Bulldog star, Gordon (Cake) Gore, who has been on a touchdown spree all seasoa Despite his 205-pound avoirdu pois, the Bulldog right halfback is one of the fleetest and shiftiest backs in pro football. He could land a job In the National Pro League if he wanted to, but he prefers the sunkissed Southland. Today's tussle comes under the heading of a rematch, for only day before yesterday the Bulldogs popped the Pirates, 17 to 6, in an exhibition game at Colorado Springs, where Byron first broke into prominence. As Braven Dyer commented after the Bulldogs had thumped Paul Schissler's Hollywood Stars last week, "How on earth did the Bulldogs ever lose a game this season?" Resourceful Gus Henderson has added a touch of deception to his famed spread formation that broke Ed (Crazy Legs) Stark loose time and again, and today we find Gore usurping Stark's role of tormentor. LINE TOO TOUGH On the basis of the returns from Colorado Springs, that tough Bulldog line figures to check the Pirate advance, although Byron is apt to break away at any moment. And I think I'm in line for the Pulitzer Prize by writing a story about Byron White and not once mentioning the word "Whizzer." Bulldogs Pirates 70 Bmtty LER. Sorlft (20 22 O'Brien LT.R.

Heading the program is the double-header affair set for Griffith Park Playground. San Pedro United takes on the Russian eleven in the first game, with San Bernardino clashing with the Los Angeles Rangers in the wind-up tilt. Three other games are billed for the Metropolitan loop, His-pano invading Santa Barbara, Lancashire Rovers trekking to Daniels Field, San Pedro, for a game with the San Pedro City eleven, and Azteca takes on the United Furniture Workers at Rancho Playground.

The spotlight will flicker on the special five-lap match race when Spider Webb and Tex Peterson tangle on a winner take-all basis. Starting as the aftermath of Webb's first win at the South Gate speed plant, the feud came to a head during the week when Peterson posted a wager with speedway officials and asked for an opportunity to show the speedy Spider the short way around without a lot of traffic cluttering up the track. J. C. Agaianian, president of the Car Owners and Drivers' As. sociation, sanctioned the affair but will not allow it to go on the card until immediately following the main event of 50 laps. A slight miscue on the part of either driver would result in an accident depriving fans of the opportunity to see both cars in competition during the rest of the card. One of the classiest line-ups ever assembled in big-car racing will face starter Dominic Dis tarce, with all the big-shot driv ers in the busines waiting for the starter's flag. Hal Cole, former A.A.A. star, Bud Rose, winner of the 500-mile Oakland classic Hal Robson, Shorty Ellyson, Rajo Jack, Woody Wilbourn Bruce Denslow, Kenny Palmer, Don Farmer and a host of other stellar space eaters will compete Starting with a two-lap trophy dash, four 10-lap qualifying heats with six cars competing in each, the 50-lap feature and a 10-lap consolation race will wind up the program. Northern Promoters Seek Garrison Two Northern California pro moters are seeking to sign Jimmy Garrison, sharp hitting Kansas City lightweight, it was revealed yesterday by his manager, Frankie Gatto. Johnny Sylvester of Oakland would like to pitfiarrispn against Joe Gavras, Greek schoolboy. Benny Ford, matchmaker of Dreamland Arena in San Fran cisco, is after tne Missouri sock- er to box Al Citrino. Garrison fights Georgie Crouch Tuesday night at the Olympic. Theodore Sought to Box Dick Foster Milo Theodore, Rumanian welterweight ruler, who has been flashing brilliant form in boxing workouts with Carmen Barth and Gorilla Jones at Roxie Eisen's gymnasium, yesterday was being sought to box Dick Foster in San Francisco. Benny Ford, Dreamland Arena matchmaker, wired Gus Wilson the offer. Wilson, however, is dicker ing for a Hollywood main event for Theodore, he declared last night. Dartmouth Suffers Few Grid Injuries When Larry Dilkes, tackle, was Injured and forced out of the Harvard game, Dartmouth suffered its first major football casualty in three years. One reason for the success of the Green ha3 been the training of uoiiie - nevans,, xne man irom Ohio, who has had charge of the conditioning, f MAN FROM MARS BRINGS WORD OF PLANET CONDITIONS BV JACK The Man From Mars is home-, sick but every time he thinks of Mars he thinks of his mother- in-law and mother-in-laws being the same in Mars as any place else, the Man From Mars has decided to keep on frightening the Earth People at the Olympic rassling each and every Wednesday night. "Conditions in Mars are terrible," said the Man From Mars pessimistically, speaking with a heavy Martian accent. "Over 1,000,000 people are on relief and 'Mars' Perkins is having trouble with the A.F.L. and the C.I.O. PENSION" IX MARS "I left before they took a vote on that '$30 JIvery Thursday' pension but if it passes the country will go back into the hands of receivers. The Republicans are planning to lease the White House in Marshington for four years in 1910 but they tell me Roosevelt may run for a third term. It looks like war if Hitler bites off another piece of Jupiter. Adolf is also holding a plebiscite on the Big and Little Dipper. "We suffer from double features in Mars, too, but, bank night is proving very popular. Hedy La Mars made a big hit in her last picture. ! RUTH STILL 1IUXTIXG "When I left Bill Terry still was refusing to give his telephone number to newspapermen and Babe Ruth was still hunting for a major league managers' job. Larry MacPhail says the Daffy Dodgers are going to reform next season but that's too much to expect even in Mars. It looks like we haven't got anybody to stop the Yankees in 1930 unless President Harridge allows the other clubs to arm themselves with radio beams instead of baseball bats. "I saw Casey Stengel just before taking off in my Rocket Six, manufactured by General Motors. He was still calling on all the unemployment agencies looking for a job not managing a major league club. You know Casey received more money for not managing the Dodgers than Grimes did as manager. MARS BOWL "It looks like the Bears and Texas Christian in the Mars Bowl. I haven't seen a home! town paper in weeks but I surmise Howard Jones is still using the power play at old S.C." The Man From Mars, who denies that he is owned and FONTAINE, PETERS TRADE SWATS IN HOLLYWOOD RING Ritchie Fontaine, French or phan, and Nick Peters, glamor ous Greek, will furnish the fireworks at the Hollywood Legion Stadium next Friday night. They are boxing at 135 pounds, reters ha3 just returned from the East where he won three fights and is on edge again. Fontaine gathered momentum here recently when he was giv en a draw with Georgie Hans ford at the movieland arena. The Fontaine-Hansford scrap was one of the hottest contests yet seen in the new $250,000 plant. Instead of being rematched with Fontaine Matchmaker Charley MacDonald Is sending Hansford in on Nov. 25 with Tony WHIZZER IN HOLIDAY GAME Springs. No. 1 1 of the Bulldogs is Gordon Gore, stellar halfback. The pro gridiron rivals renew their feud to day at Gilmore Stadium. SINGER operated by the Columbia Broad casting System, naively confesses that he is really just a "down to earth" fellow. "Reno is doing a flourishing business in Mars but I am a happily married man with a baby daughter." NO DAROS The Man From Mars stands 6ft. 4in. and weight 345 pounds in his stocking feet, which is practically all the time because rassling in Mars, having no Daro Brothers to operate the trust, is not prospering and he cannot afford a pair of shoes. ' The Man From Mars likes the climate here and says that never and under no circumstances will, he return to Mars. But he may suddenly change his mind as soon as he receives his first income tax report from Uncle Sam. Wrestling Tourney on Tap at Olympic Heavyweight wrestlers of all sizes, shapes, descriptions and dispositions go on parade Wednesday night at the Olympic when Promoter Jack Daro stages a House of All-Nations tournament. It is a one-night stand af fair. The tournament is being held to produce the next opponent for Sandor Szabo, California heavyweight champion and claimant of the world's mat crown. Szabo contends that Bron-ko Nagurski forfeited the world's title to him by running out on a contract for a match here. Twentv wrestlers will be dumped Into the melting pot Wednesday night. They will represent nearly every nation on the face of the globe. Maxie Rosenbloom Resumes Training Nearing completion of a motion picture assignment for Warner Bros., Maxie Rosenbloom is expected to get back into light training shortly at Roxie's Main Street gym. Manager Charley Martin has several offers from which to choose for the Jewish actor-boxer-night club owner's return to the ring wars. Promoter Jack Kearns is believed to have the inside track on Rosenbloom's services. He hopes to book "a Rosenbloom-Roscoe T o 1 e s 10-rounder for Detroit fans during Christmas week. Chavez In a rematch. Jimmy Murray, known as the "Good Will" man of boxing because he takes boys who are not going any place, and starts them up the hill again, is guiding Fontaine now. Fontaine is one of the few who holds a decision over Henry Armstrong. Wishey Jones, the Dixie star, boxes Everette Simmlngton, newcomer, in the six-round semifinal. Bernie Reyes face? Billy Pas-son, Lew Tendler's bantam protege, in the special event. Other bouts are Oats Zaldy vs. Johnny Verdusco, Louie Reed v,. Zeke. Castro and Johnny Oetry vs. Spud Ston. ft Wirephoto McGuirk Risks World Title Light-heavy Crown on Block Tonight in Legion Mat Bout L e r o y McGuirk, Oklahoma college boy and world's light-heavyweight champion, risks his title against the Ohio "acid man," Tarzan Orth, at the Hollywood Legion Stadium tomorrow night. The match figures to be one of the classics of the fall season. ONE-FALL LOSS Orth holds a decision over Danny McShain, and McShain recently pinned McGuirk once In two hours at Little Rock, Ark. The Razorback State has a law that ; terminates all mat bouts in two hours. When the time ran out and McGuirk had not secured a pin, McShain claimed the title. But the Arkansas commission seized Mc-Guirk's belt and ordered it held until a ruling from the National Wrestling Association was secured. So far the N.W.A., which requires title matches to be two falls out of three with no time limit, has not acted. OLYMPIC CONTESTANT . This is the second time McGuirk has held the championship. He wrestled in the Olympic Games in -928. Jimmy Lott, who played in the Rose Bowl in 1932 with Alabama, wrestles Monte LaDue, Frenchman, in the two-falls-finish semifinal tomorrow night. In other bouts Yukon Jake tangles with Charley Carr, Alvin Britt tackles Buddy Knox, Mysterious Mr. X pairs with Johnny Nichols, and Andy Tremaine opens the card with Ben Tilar, Filipino champion. Colored Stars Face Mexicans The National League colored all-stars step out at Wrigley Field this afternoon, determined to stop the unbeaten winning streak of Mexico s baseball champions in a double-header with the first game set for 12:30 p.m. BALL HANDLERS Fans, who have seen the Mexi cans perform the last two weeks at Wrigley Field, have been amazed at their clever ball handling, the slugging of Capt. Au- gustin Bejarano and Velino Sal-vatierra, 19-year-old Mexican Babe Ruth, and the unbeatable pitching of Ramon Bragaha and Fernando Barradas. Included among their victims have been the Coast All-Stars two successive Sundays. Lou Dial3 of Pittsburgh, manager of the colored phenoms, plans to have four pitchers ready for duty against the Mexican sluggers with "Schoolboy" Griffith of Baltimore likely to start the first game and Chet Brewer of Tamplco, Mex., the second. Brewer made a special trip from Tampico for today's featured. NEGRO STARS The Negroes Include such stars as "Wild Bill" Wright, "Pepper" Basset, "Scoop" Mathews, Capt. Chet Williams, Jake Dunn, "Pull man" Torter, Mose Flonney. Roosevelt Davis and Barney Morris in their line-up in addition to Brewer and Griffith. They are the pick of eastern colored cir cuits, Crouch Takes on Garrison Welch to Stage Rematch Bout Tuesday Night at Olympic Fistir matchmakers are con stantly on the alert for "natural" rematches, such as Tues-dav nirfit's affair at the Olym pic between Georgie Crouch and Jimmy Garrison. Rine historv is replete with staeeerine fieures of multi-thou sand-dollar gates drawn by these seven-elevens of the resin. . Outstanding, of course, is the brace of bouts between Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney. In the first, Sept. 23, 1926, at Philadelphia, they grossed $1,895,723. The rematch at Chicago, 364 days later, enriched Tex Rickard's cof- fers with the staggering sum of $2,658,660. FIGHT BETTER But it wasn't only the gate receipts that improved; the fight at Chicago was immeasurably more exciting than the first battle. That was where the famous "14-count" episode earned its niche in ring history. Benny Leonard and Lew Tend-ler, lightweights, (giving Tend-ler the benefit of the doubt) met at New Jersey, July 27, 1922 in Boyle's Forty Acres. They drew $367,862. It was a close fight; hence, 361 days later, they met again in New York, and drew $452,648. Back in the days when Teddy Roosevelt was waving the big stick at plutocratic malefactors, the Illinois Thunderbolt, Billy Papke, shocked the home-town folks, right here in Los Angeles," by knocking out the great Stanley Ketchell in 12 rounds. They didn't draw any exceptional amount. . HUGE TOTAL But, three months later, they met in a rematch at Colma, and San Francisco contributed the then staggering sum of $22,400 to see Ketchell turn the tables. As fight receipts go, nowadays, that wasn't such-a-much; but it was more than Corbett-Fitzsimmons drew; more than Terry McGovern and Young Corbett drew; more than Fitz-simmons and Sharkey drew. And 22 grand, in these ham-and-egg days, will still buy a lot of cigarettes. Getting away from the crass commercialism of gate receipts, the Crouch-Garrison rematch figures to furnish just as hair-raising, Humpty-Dumpty surprises as the historic battles mentioned above. Both Crouch and Garrison yearn to win by a knockout, this time. In the offing for the victor lies a contract to meet Pedro Montanez, Puerto Rican star. Six four-rounders, all action bouts, complete the card. Municipal Football Tilts on Tap Today Boasting the fine record of three straight victories, Golden State A.C. will take the field at Rancho Playground Stadium this afternon favored over the Spoil ers' AC. eleven in the feature game of the fourth round of play in the Municipal Football Asso ciation. Competition will start at 2:30. Rancho Stadium is lo cated off Exposition, between La Brea and Crenshaw. Golden State has defeated Rancho, 20-6; beaten Manchester, 13-0, and last week edged out Los Capistrano, 7-0. In two games played the Spoilers have defeated Harvard A.C. and the Delta Tau Delta squad bv the same score of 6-0. Two other games are scheduled for this afternoon, one at Manchester Playground, the other at Harvard Playground. Buck Manson will lead the strong Ross Snyder Bulldogs against Manchester at 2, while Delta Tau Delta will try and break into the win column at the expense of Joe Buccola's Harvard A.C. eleven.

Both the Scots and Sheiks ara still very much in the championship running, but by the way upsets are being passed around this month they may be out of it after their respective gamea with the Los Angeles Athletic Club and Victoria today. Magyars are picked over Sons of St. George in today's morning opener at 11 a.m. ' GERMANS STRONG The hard fighting Germans of the Victoria Club will be well fortified to knock over Holly wood in the main afternoon tussle at 3 p.m. The Sheiks are looking to their fine halfbacks to win the game for them. In Allan Shep herd from U.C.L.A. they have the finest young halfback in the game today, and the veteran Billy Horsfall at center can well take care of that strategic position. Steve Kreppell, son of Manager Nick Kreppell, will be at right halfback. Ronnie Monk at fullback and "Jumping Joe' Peleyo in goal are the stalwart of Hollywood's defense. SCOT STARS Scots have Herb Headley, former Chicago star, and Joe Rof fredo, at center, ready to turn loose against the young Mercuries, who have been forced to shift their line-up due to an injury suffered last Sunday by, Ralph Hernandez, young fullback.

Portland center fielder, and Bill Gray, outfielder wjio received $1000 for signing a con-tract with Brooklyn. The appearance of the three Coscararts in the line-up will be a novelty, the brothers In organized baseball being property of three different clubs. A pitcher Durst is bringing up from San Diego may prove a sensation today. He is Tex Reichert of Uncle Sam's Navy, a husky fast-ball hurler of no-hit, no-run fame. Reichert has hurled his team to the Navy title for seven straight years. He has been offered contracts by a half-dozen big league clubs but baa preferred to remain in the Na.y because of his rating. .
