MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 5 1935 NINTH Out of The I PRESSBOX By At MITCHELL 1 " SPEEDWAY 1 The perfect speedway ... nothing to worry a driver except the limit of his automobile's performance . . . ',1s the salt flats of Utah. Ab Jen| 'kins, endurance speed auto pilot. 'cracked a host of records on their smooth surface this week. Last year the same pilot, using a specially built stock machine, set another long string of records. * # * Jenkins' feats are interesting; in themselves and indicate the salt flats minimize the human equation in speed runs. Jenkins himself believes the Utah flats approach the ideal and recently asserted that if Sir Malcolm Campbell's Bluebird has 300 miles an hour in its roaring motors, then that speed shouid be attained when the Briton tries the salt strip later this summer. * * # "If Bluebird has the (stuff," Jonkins said, "and I understand she has this trip, Campbell will be able to breeze along as fast as the car .will travel." \ . « . 1 Jenkins understands the prob- [Jems that the English sportsman I face when he races at Salduro, r Booneville, sometime soon. He fAfc'as been setting records and test- ling stock cars on the salt beds for , r 'many years. Jenkins is certain ''Campbell can open Bluebird to the limit, and the record will go just f s high as the giant car's speed. * * * f "Those salt beds Jorm an ideal / ' racing strip," Jenkins says. "They ! are fast, hard and smooth as a bil- , Hard ball. The surface is surpris- f ' ingly easy on tires--an important factor whether you are running for a few minutes as Campbell will be or for 24 hours as I do. V * * "When Camplell went after the 300 mark at Daytona last March, he was handicapped in several ways. In the first place, I don't believe Bluebird had that much speed in her. Even under top conditions, I think 276 miles an hour was her limit. * * * "Then, again, Campbell never could get a first class racing strip along the beach. He also was hav- ; ing trouble with his tires. ; "When he comes to Booneville IK j will have none of these factors to I battle." 1 * * * | Jenkins said he understood that Bluebird's motor has been overhauled and is in tip-top shape--at least 30 miles faster than it was a few months ago. He believes there -will be no question of waiting for good racing conditions. Once the flats dry out under the sun the course will be at its best. -. . « , . ( "Campbell found at Daytona that , little shells cut his tires and checked his -speed along the beach," Jenkins remarked. "He'll have no trou- { ble along these lines at Salduro. In fact, his tires will be the least of his worries. * * * i "Even if he does blow a tire al I 300 miles an hour, I don't think il i will prove serious. Of course, it would mean his finish at Daytona if he did a 'Gil Hoolie' into the sand ' (Continued on Market Page) CHARlESCim-3 VICTOR ON FOURTH LaCrosse Boosters Fall lor lowans in Feature Game of Decorah Day.

FULLEKTON JR. Associated Press Sports Writer. Going on the time honored though -ften disproved theory that the earns which hold the lead after July are the ones likely to be on top at the finish, New York fans still an look forward to their ideal of a orld series on a five cent fare. The Yankees apparently will lave quite a battle, though, to bring t about. The Independence day double- ieaders made the Yanks' hold on he American league lead look ather shaky, as they had to work heir hardest to gain an even break with the fifth place Boston Red Sox. The rampant Detroit Tigers lammed their way to two more ·ictoroes over Cleveland and cut New York's lead to two games. Gomez, Grove Win. After Lefty Grove shackled them with seven hits to give Boston a 1 o 3 victory, the Yanks called on another southpaw, Vernon Gomez, who came through with a brilliant bur hit flinging while the league eaders smashed out a 7 to 1 cleci- lion. The Tigers had to go 11 innings to beat Cleveland 6 to 5 in the opener after Mickey Cochrane tied it up with a homer in the ninth, but the second clash brought an easy 10 to 4 triumph. Lynwood Rows hurt a shoulder muscle and had to retire. Bengals Win Seventh. It was the Tigers' seventh straight victory and their fifth over the Indians, who sank to fourth place as Chicago's White Sox belted over the Browns twice 11 to 6 and 4 to 0. Silent John Whitehead broke his six game losing streak, but he failed :o finish the opener and Les Tietje followed with a five hit flinging job. The Athletics also were double winners, beating Washington 6 to 3 and 2 to 1 to take sixth place away from the Senators. In contrast to this struggle the iants' National league lead stretched to nine games--the longest so far--as they trimmed the Braves twice. The Cardinals routec the Cubs to climb back into second place and drop Chicago to fourth The Pirates moved up a notch to third by splitting their bargain bill with Cincinnati. Giants Have Struggle. The Giants had a bit of a struggle in the opener when Boston bowled Clyde Castleman over with a five run fifth inning, nut they rallied to win 10 to 8, and went on to hammer out a 12 to 3 decision that gave Hal Schumacher his tenth straight victory. After three hits off Charley Root in the twelfth inning gave the Cards a 5 to 3 triumph over Chicago, they went on to win another close one 6 to 4 for Dizzy Dean who chalked up his twelfth hurling triumph with the aid of four Cub errors. Bucs Belt Baseball. The Pirates belted out 16 hits to take the opener 9 to 5, but failed to survive Cincinnati's seventh inning attack in the after pk-ce, and Billy Myers smashed a homer with two on to win for the Reds, 5 to 4 The Phillies rounded out a big day for the Quaker City clubs by taking two hard games from Brooklyn by the homerun route John Moore's fourteenth homer brought a 3 to 2 victory in the opener and two circuit swats by George Watkins and Dolpb Ca. milli's seventeenth figured largely in the second clash, which Phila delphia won, 8 to 7, on a four run rally in the tenth.

Associated Press Sports Writer. This may be another year for one f Iowa golfing- youngsters to win he state amateur championship When the boys gather at Cedar Rapids Monday for the state meet. It was the younger set which itole the spotlight from the veterans at the Trans-Mississippi at Des Moines last week. They advanced 'arther along the championship trail and left several of Iowa's older stars in their wake. The feeilng is general that one of the fearless young shooters, who asks no quarter and certainly gives none, has an excellent chance of blasting his way to a state title similar to Hal Chase's victory a' Okoboji in 1933. Sid Richardson of Creston, Billy Hall of Boone, Billy Cordingley Jimmy Miller and Chase, all of Des Moines, are given serious consideration when the title favorites are discussed. * * * The 17 year old Richardson, a freckled faced youth who fears no competitor, battled his way to the semifinals of the Trans where he was felled by Johnny Dawson o Chicago, one of the country's best Richardson's showing was the mosl impressive of any of the Iowa players in the meet. Miller, young brother of Denmar Miller, the 1934 Iowa amateur winner, paid no attention to reputa- ;ion when he defeated Gus Moreland, 1933 and 1934 Trans champion 7 and 6 in a first round match Miller in turn was eliminated in th next round by the long-driving Chase. * * * Chase, inconsistent in medal play is a fine match player with a hear of steel. A big, strapping youngster ne invariably outdrives his foes with long, becoming tee shots. He may be the boy to beat at Cedar Rapids. The 17 year old Cordingley is another lad for the veterans to watch. He eliminated Denmar Miler in the Trans and then turned on the heat to whip Paul Jackson of Oklahoma City. Cordingley lost to Johnny Goodman in the third round. All the boy needs is experience. The Trans may have given him enough to make him one of the leaders next week. Hall did not compete ill the (Continued on Market J'agc) "EACOCK STANDS BESIDE STARS OF AMERICAN TRACK Temple University Star Gets Biggest Honors in Dash, Jump at Lincoln. LINCOLN, Nebr., July 5. (.T)--As f materialized from thin air by a :onjurer's wand, Eulace Peacock, a Temple university Negro sophomore, today stood beside Ralph Metcalf and Jesse Owens in the top flight of American track and field competition. Peacock, compact piece of athletic machinery who chased Owens to the :ape in the N. C. A. A.; who fin- shed fifth in the broad jump in the same meet, yesterday in the Na- lonal Senior A. A. U. championships flashed to a decisive victory over Owens and Metcalfe in the 100 meter event. Steals Prize Event. And before incredulous thousands had ceased roaring their tribute, this same Eulace Peacock hurled lis body through the torrid air 26 :eet 3 inches in the broad jump to again steal a victory from Owens n an event in which the Ohio State star was considered supreme. The amazing Peacock literally ran away with a show that was jacked with headliners. Even the 'eat of the New York Athletic club n winning its fourth straight team :hampionship in the face of stern competition from the Olympic club of San Francisco paled into insignificance beside Peacock's performance. Gotham Wins Events. The New York A. C. scored 45 points and the Olympic club 39. Peacock's rise to fame came with the dazzling flash of a skyrocket piercing a black sky. Thousands of eyes watching Metcalfe and Tolan saw another flying figure sweep abreast, then pull in to the lead. It was Peacock, and hig time of :10.2 equalled tne world record. Metcalfe was second, abou a foot back, and Owens was in third place, barely inches behini Metcalfe. Wind Stops Record. A brisk, gusty wind that rangei from 7 to 11 miles an hour most o the afternoon robbed Peacock o recognition for his record time. Owens gave everything- he hat in his final broad jump, but th 'best he could get was a shade be yond 26 feet, three-quarters of an inch short of Peacock's mark.

CT»-- 'red Perry, dashing British star of he courts, captured the all-England ennis championship for the second uccessive year today, defeating 3aron Gottfried von Cramm of Germany, 6-2, 6-4, 0-4, in the final ound. Although von Cramm battled the Jriton every inch of the way, he ever had a chance against the lack haired champion. At every vial point, Perry had the snots he eeded to win and von Cramm con- istently was caught fiat footed by he Briton's .smashing drives. Perry, a heavy favorite from the tart, lived up to his reputation as he world's greatest amateur. He ominated the match throughout nd always looked like the certain vinner. NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L.
