MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 1 1935 NINE i Out of The PR ESS BOX By AL MITCHELL "I'LL CATCH HELL . , ." Jesse Owens, star Negro athlete from Ohio State and current edition of the "world's fastest human," is highly perturbed over conflicting reports on romantic entanglements with a daughter of a Los Angeles insurance salesman here and a Cleveland hairdresser. * * * According to Jesse, the hairdresser in Cleveland is as far ahead of the field as Jesse usually is in the 100-yard dash. · "I don't see how such a report could have got out," he sa ! .d. "I'm very worried about what Miss Solomon may think." * * * Miss Ruth Solomon is the hairdresser. Owens said his interest in the insurance man's daughter, Cuincella Nickerson, buxom, handsome 20 year old Los Angeles Negro girl, was "just one of those things--not serious." * * * ' · First indications of a rift for the "black Buckeye bullet" came from Cleveland where dispatches foretold Jesse's probable marriage to Miss Nickerson in Los Angeles. Miss Solomon, envy of all the dark town belles since she became Jesse's girl friend, reportedly was very wrathful over the story. * * * ' "I should think she would be," the Negro athlete murmured. "Why we've been very friendly for some time. Miss Solomon and I have very much in common." Miss Nickerson, he said, "was just an acquaintance --a very nice friend, but not serious." * * * Miss Jfickerson coyly refused to be quoted in the matter. "You'd better ask Jesse about that," she laughed, when told of her reported plans to wed the dusky Ohio runner. She said they were "very good friends." * * * Jesse met Miss Nickerson three weeks ago when the Ohio State track team arrived on the coast for a meet with the University of Southern California. Miss Nickerson admitted she had seen Owens "frequently" since he has been in the west. * * * "For heaven's sake, don't let that story go out," Jesse gasped, when told of the report of his "»ngage- ment," "I'll certainly catch hell from Miss Solomon." * * * WEDDING BELLS While Jesse Owens was beginning to worry about his rumored engagement, another luminary of the sports world was married af- · ter a few false starts and a romance which apparently was a secret between himself and his bride. Max Eaer, former heavyweight boxing champion of the world, married Mary Ellen Sullivan, manager of a Washington coffee shop, Saturday afternoon. * * p The wedding climaxed a day of excitement and confusion for Maxie, who couldn't make up his mind how old his bride was, who wasn't sure where he was to be married, and who nearly lost his nerve when the moment came. * * * · He wasn't afraid of marriage, not Baer whose affairs of the heart have made history. He was afraid of the Dig movie cameras, which started grinding when he and Miss Sullivan drove up to the home of Judge F. Dickinson Letts, a former lowan, in a fancy roadster. S * * Max took one look at the cameras and the reporters, jerked the wheel and sped away. Thirty minutes later he drove back m a sightseeing automobile, with nerve apparently revived, for the ordeal of the pictures. * Out in Richardson Springs, Cal., Jacob "Papa" Baer gave Maxies latest marital encounter his blessing provided "this Mary Sullivan is a nice girl, and ain't a movie actress, night club girl, or gold digger.' * * * He grunted--"Huh, what do you think about that? He was raving (Continued on Page 10) STANDINGS WESTERN LEAGUE W. L. Pct.l W. L. Davenport 2K 18 .617|Keokuk 2 5 2 1 M. Joseph 29 19 .604] C. Bnplds 18 25 C. Bluffs 25 20 .55611).

PITTMAN WINS TWO LEGION MATCHES E AZETTE Braddock Wants to Meet Louis for Heavyweight Crown BIG GATE DRAWS INTEREST OF NEW WORLD CHAMPION Million Dollar Gate Seen for Meeting of Big Jim and Detroit Bomber. NEW YORK, July I. (JB--IS. James J. Braddock has his way, Joe Louis, new Negro sensation, will get the first whack at his newly won world's heavyweight title. Braddock believes a fight with Louis next summer would draw tha nearest approach to a million dollar gate since the lush days of Tex Rickard and Jack Dempsey. Joe Gould, the new champ's busy little manager, added: "Million dollar gates are what Braddock and Co., Ltd., are interested in." Gould and Braddock figure Louis will knock Max Schmeling out of the picture in September and then repeat the performance in October on the blushing bridegroom, Marc Baer, thus clearing the decks for a "natural" between Louis and Braddock next summer. Right now Braddock and Gould are going through the delightful experience of raking in profits from all directions. "We will make 5200,000 in the next 12 months without pulling on a glove," said Gould. "So why fight ? Anyway, New York has had two big heavyweight fights this ye;ir and may get two more. That's enough." Braddock is rehearsing a vaudeville skit in which he will be costarred with his wife. Rudd Wins in Game Saturday as Locals Fail to Get Runs Across Plate. Mason City's Legion Junior baseball team, appearing i n a preview before opening its competition in the fourth district junior tournament, lost to Rudd here by 4 to 1 Saturday. The Mason Cityans collected 7 hits off Roger Finch, Rudd flinger, to put men on bases for 5 consecutive innings, but were able to score only once. John "Chief" Shire, pitching for the local club, was rapped for 11 hits, 3 of the blows coming in the first inning to count a pair of runs for the visitors.

Shire struck out 9 men, while Finch set down 11 with whiffs, walking 3. Shire walked 4.

(A 1 )--Pity the poor umpire! His lot, never easy, has been made doubly hard in the last year with the introduction of the high speed camera, which is being used more and more by the newspapers to convey action on the diamond. It used to be that the arbitrator, after calling a close play, could tone down the angry roar from the stands with the thought "I'm only human" or "I was right on top of the play so who was in a better position to hand down the decision?" But now those close plays are being reproduced in the newspapers and the result is often very embarrassing to the boys who call 'em. For the high speed camera, unlike the umpire, is never wrong and there arc those who are wondering just how long it will be until the instrument is introduced officially into baseball as the final word in making decisions on which protested games hinge. Track officials already have taken up the high speed camera as a means of determining the finishes of races in which it is beyond human capabilities to decide correctly the results. So far, major league baseball officials have refused to let the high speed cameras go over the heads of their umpires and have indicated that they"will continue to take this stand. New Athletic Field Gets Lights for Fall Season EMMETSBTJRG, July 1.--Emmetsburg's high school and Junior college athletic field, built here in 1934, will be equipped with a lighting system for night contests, the school board announced Friday. Bids for the light contract will be presented Monday night, with the installation of the system to be completed before the fall opening of school, members of the board said. The field is located near the West Side school building. Tigers Win Although Home Club Collects 15 Hits in Sunday Battle. ROCKWELL, July 1.--Dows defeated Rockwell in a Sunday baseball game here, winning 5 to 4 although the home club got 15 hits to the visitors' 9.

Hilt got the only extra base hits, cracking out a pair of doubles in a row.] A double play, Lake to Hanson to J. Colles, was racked up for Dows. Rockwell wants 3, game for next Sunday. Collegians Hold Early Lead as Pragers Rally in 9th to Fill Baselines. FOREST CITY, July 1.--The Forest City Collegians downed the Prnger Beers of Des Moines in a Sunday baseball game by 3 to 0. as Harder pitched for the local boys.

The visitors filled the bases on a hit, error and hit in the first of the ninth, but a fast double play and a strikeout ended the ball game. WESTKRN LEAGUE S. city al D. MolncslC.

Associated 1'ress Sports Writer The New York Giants have achieved a position in the National league pennant race that has probably turned their rivals and a quartet of contenders in the other circuit bright green with envy. With mid-season approaching, the Giants have built their lead up to 8!.i games and. having repulsed the challenges of their leading ' rivals in the last coup-.c or weeks, can sit back and watch the other contenders knock one another off with considerable regularity. In contrast, the first three American league clubs are grouped in a space of 3'.2 games. While the Giants were taking two tough ones from the Brooklyn Dodgers Sunday 1 to 4, and 5 to 4, Pittsburgh's Pirates climbed back to second place, pushing Chicago down to third and the world champion Cardinals to fourth. The Giants got the benefit, of a 17 hit assault on four Brooklyn pitchers in the opener and of 6 hit flinging by Hal Schumacher, who won his ninth straight game, in the afterpiece. Mel Ott helped oy lifting a homer in each game to bring his season's total to 16. The Pirates, held to a run in three previous games, slammed out a 9 to 7 victory over the Cubs with another 17 swat attack. The great Dizzy Dean was thoroughly out-pitched by little Tony Freitas of Cincinnati, who gave the Cards only 4 hits as the Reds beat them for the third straight Unit, 5 to 2. Both Cleveland and Detroit sliced into the Yankees' American league lead, the Tigers going on a hitting rampage to make iL-e biggest inroads with a double victroy over St. Louis. The scores were 18 to 1 and 11 to 6 as the Tigers made 19 hits in each game. The .Indians split a doubleheader with the White Sox, winning 3 to 2 behind Monte Pearson's 6 hit flinging, then taking an 8 to 0 shutout. Vernon Kennedy gave only 7 blows while the Hose hammered Mel Harder into submission to end his latest winning streak. The even break helped, however, as the Yankees bowed to Wash- (Continued on Pace 1° DEFENDER PLAYS Hansen, Tamasi, Longley in Quarterfinals of 1935 Community Battle. Clayton PiUmnn, defending Legion open golf champion, took a pair of hurdles in the race for the 1935 community course title Sunday, as he beat Harland Humphrey and Bob Adams in the first and second rounds of the meeting. Humphrey, who was Piltman's final opponent last season, fell by 4 and 2 before the defender in the opening match of the tournament, while Adams went down in the second round by 4 and 3 after beating Stanley Haynes 6 and 5 to gain a position against the champion.

Read about this new tire invention which may save your life. Remember, thousands are killed or injured every year when blow-outs throw cars out of control. Why tires blow out At today's high speeds, terrific heat is generated inside the tire. Rubber and fabric separate. Blisters form. They grow bigger and bigger until --sooner or later--the tire blows out with a BANG! And it takes plenty of luck to keep you off the accident list. But in the new Goodrich Safety Silvertown, the Life-Saver Golden Ply resists this heat--the great, un- seencauseof£hese/ow-ours.Rub- berandfabricdon'tseparate.Blisters don't form, and high-speed blowouts don't get a chance to start.

Put Goodrich (remember the name) Golden Ply Silvertowns on your car now.
