MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 11 1935 THIRTEEN Out- of The PRESSBOX By At MITCHELL CO-OPERATE, OB ELSE . . . The National league baseball clubs, smarting under the sting of their third defeat in the all-star series, hung on them last Monday by the American loop teams, will co-operate in future seasons . . or ese, says Prexy Ford C. Frick. Or else the game will be dropped. * * * The National league president, his associates and followers were rather wrathy at the manner in which managers used their "Sunday" pitchers. Instead of making' them available for the all-star game, the top hurlers were used in week-end league contests. Paul Derringer of the Cincinnati Reds worked for seven innings on Sunday . . . -Jerorie "Dizzy" Dean appeared for fiv and two-thirds innings in the skme game . . . * * * Â· Frankie Friseh's action was pardonable because of the fact that Sunday's game was worth a lot to him, but the reaction was most unfavorable . . . at the same time Carl Hubbell was working a full game in New York, while Bill Terry was apparently holding out Hal Schumacher for the Monday exhibition. Instead, he announced in Cleveland that Schumacher would w,ork his Wednesday turn . . . and that nobody was going to make a sucker out of Bill Terry. .*.-. *Â· * * :" With all the star f lingers on the Â· sidelines, Manager Frankie Frisch finally had no other choice but to start Bill Walker, a southpaw from Eis own club. It is said that Manager Bill Terry, of the Giants, wanted Hal Schumacher to pitch Snly three innings. He pitched four. .. * * * ~ Prexy Frick says: I'.."H this all-star game continues next year, there's going to be some gew rules and I'll see to it that we have the best available players ready for action." "^ * * * *Â» The American leaguers were particularly jubilant over their third .-straight triumph, especially Mickey Cochrane. He managed the outfit. . 3 , , 4: * * -Concerning that last minute 'Vchange in the lineup, Mickey said: ' "We were surprised when the Â·^ovie men asked to take pictures of : the starting pitchers and Bill Walker " Bopped out of the dugout. So I Â· cHanged the lineup, putting in Sim- : .Â»ons and Hemsley, right-handed hitters, to take Cramer's and my July It July 12 July 15 July in July 17 July 18 July 19 ,v place. * * * Jhranie Foxx, the Athletics' burly all around star, was as happy as kid-over his homerun accounting for two runs in-fee" first inning that sounded the National leaguers' death warrant. * * f The National leaguers in their hour of sorrow, pounced upon their pitching difficulties as the main reason for their defeat. But the Na- 'tional leaguers lost because their r ' fine hitters could get only four hits off Gomez and Harder. * * * Some of the veteran observers were bitter because of the National leagues' apparent lack of desire to American was the Bob Johnson, the league's leading batter, . "goat." He popped out his first time at bat, then fanned three straight times. t * * The gross receipts from 69,812 paid admissions were $93,692.80. Some $12,000 went for state and federal taxes and the expense for staging the spectacle was $20,000. This leaves about $60,000 for the players' benevolent fund. * * * RUNAWAY "Big Bill" Tilden, although admitting the all-Helen final at Wimbledon was a nip and tuck affair pre- 'dicts Mrs. Helen Wills Moody will run away with the American tennis championship at Forest Hills, N. Y., this fall. * * * .Once king of the amateurs, Tilden peered over the fence from his professional world, where he is still tops, but was able to see no one but Mrs. Moody among the women. , * * * "'"Mrs. Moody," he told sport writers, "has not changed her style a bit. Her accuracy and speed have suffered during her two years' ab' sence from the game, but these ,' (Continued on Market Pace) HALL, M'CRARY FAVORED IN AMATEUR B E - G A Z E T T E RTS Wolves, Maytag in Round Robin; Abel Wins Opening Tilt PLAYOFF SCRAPS SETTLE LEAGUE'S FINAL STANDINGS Full Schedule Ready for Six Clubs in Next Section of City Title Battle.

Mason City softball teams wound up their league season and started on the second lap of the race for the city title all in one evening, as two playoff games finished the league schedule and the opening round robin contest went into the books Wednesday. Two more teams were boosted into the round robin as Mier Wolf and Maytag were assigned their positions after victories Wednesday night. A .light rain failed to stop the games, which wrre won by Mier Wolf from Marshall and Swift, 14 to 3, and by Maytag, from State Brand, 5 to 4. Out of Running. The slim victory for Maytag sent State Brand out of a chance at the city title, after the Butter- makers had dropped to second place in the league. State Brand led the league race for three weeks of the early schedule. Marshall and Swift was also dropped from the race after blowing its early season lead and falling to second place. The Cleaners lost as Hartwick Rosleia proved easy for the Wolves, who touched him up for 14 hits and the same number of counters. Five scattered blows were credited the Cleaners off Mark Pirkl, the club scoring its runs in the last inning. Last-Minute Rally. Louther and Bob Smith pitched a tight battle that saw Maytag win its way into the round robin in a contest that was a heartbreaker for the State Brand club. All the Maytag runs were scored in a sixth inning rally as the Maytags combined 4 hits and a pair of walks to ramble home with the victory.'State Brand had led by 4 to 0, counting 3 runs in the first and another in the fifth. Abel and Son was one up on the rest of the round robin ball clubs, with a victory over Standard Oil already salted away by 7 to 2. Denny Cross set the Socos down with 6 scattered Wows, while McGowan was touched for 7 hits and runs. FULL NIGHT CARD. A pair of night contests were on the bill for Thursday, with Mier Wolf and the "giant-killers," Royal 400 playing at the Wolf fielld. Budweiser from Osage was to meet both teams in a pair of night contests. The Wolves will also play Schu- kei Chevrolets at Waterloo in a Sunday game. Abel and Son was on schedule for Thursday night at Clear Lake, (Continues on .Market Pnsel Hope for Davis Cup Victory High as Team Shows New Spirit GENET MAKO JOHNNY VAN RYN SIDNEY WOOD WILMER ALLISON DONALD BUDGE NATS HALT LONG DETROIT STREAK HalSchumacherGetsNo.il at Expense of Bucs as Hits Are Scattered. By HUGH S. FULLERTON, JR. Associated Press Stiff Writer Washington halted Detroit's triumphant march--longest of the season--Wednesday, defeating the Tigers 12 to 11, while Hal Schumacher of the New York Giants forged his eleventh consecutive victory at the expense of pittsburg, 10 to 3. Another long streak-: one of failure--also was broken, the St. Louis Browns defeating- the Athletics* 7 to 2 after droping nine games in a row. The St. Louis string of losses has been exceeded only by the Browns themselves. Schumacher Finishes Tenth. Schumacher earned the top place on the day's honor roll, allowing only five hits in his tenth straight complete game. It was his thirteenth triumph of the season against two defeats. He allowed the Bucs to bunch four of their hits with an error to score their three runs in the third, but retired the last 16 men in order after the Giants took the lead. The Tigers made a gallant but unsuccessful effort to evade defeat. After Tommy Bridges' ineffectiveness and Joe Sullivan's wildness let the Senators score 7 runs in the first inning, the Tigers barely failed to tie the score in the ninth when a homer by Charley Gehringer touched off a five run rally. They piled up IS hits, including 10 doubles. Browns Kout Marcum. The Browns got to work early and routed Johnny Marcum to score four runs in the second inning while Dick Coffman did a good job of scattering eight Philadelphia blows. Big Wes Ferrell, who has won more games than any big league pitcher except Schumacher, pitched and batted the Red Sox to a 7 to 0 triumph over Chicago's White Sox. He allowed only two hits, both by Tony Piet, and banged a homerun and single to account for 2 tallies. Root Saves One. Charley Root, Chicago Cubs' veteran, who relieved Lon Warneke after Wally Berger's seventeenth circuit swat and a few other hits had given Boston a 4 to 1 lead, pitched four hit ball for six frames while the Cubs rallied to win 6 to 4.

United States Coming to Top Again in Net Tussle Little Bill Johnston Picks Don Budge as New Star. SAN FRANCISCO, July 11. OP)--William M. (Little Bill) Johnston, mighty mite of tennis in the days when the United States ruled supreme in Davis cup play, peered into the future today and saw hopeful signs for Uncle Sam in the matter of international competition. At the same time the crystal ball tola Johnston that Helen Wills Moody will make it a double over Helen Jacobs if and when the two stars match shots in the American championships at Forest Hills, N. Y. "We'll win back the Davis cup and young Don Budge will be the motivating force in the big drive," predicted the wiry little man who teamed up with big Bill Tilden 15 years ago to break Australia's grip on the tennis world. "If we don't win this year we should by 1935, at least." declared Johnston. "Our present team has a fair chance, despite the presence of Fred Perry in the English lineup. England, of course, is the undeniable favorite. Perry is the greatest player in the world today. He should win two singles matches. "But Budge should repeat his Wimbledon triumph over Bunny Austin and either Sydney Wood or Wilmer Allison might beat Austin. That would leave it up to the doubles match and there is always the possibility our team might produce a flawless game or catch the opposing combination of an off day." Pav'pfirt St. .inf. f.

LONG BRANCH, N. J., July 11. UP)--Well, anyway, Max Baer got back to his bride's cottage. He arrived from Baltimore early in the morning, paused on the front porch of his bungalow, and said all the talk about a rift between them was "mixed up." He repeated yesterday's numerous denials that he had said his marriage to the former Mary Ellen Sullivan was "on the rocks." The report of a separation got started, he said, because he was misunderstood when he told of religious differences with his wife. "I was simply explaining why it is that we won't be able to have a Catholic ceremony for at least a year," he said. Baer is "tickled pink" that his hands are not seriously injured and still believes he is "the best of the heavyweights." The former champion would like another crack at James J. Braddock, the man who plugged away successfully at his title, and says he is ready for a couple of priming fights this fall. Johns Hopkins hospital physicians who examined Baer's hands here yesterday informed him he would be able to fight by September. Dr. William F. lenhoff. Jr., whose x-ray examinations showed Baer's left hand was inflamed, told him he should not have fought Braddock with his hands in that condition. Baseball Carnival to See .

RED CRY IS JUST BUNKATCHICAOG A. A. Stagg Says Communism Outcry Wrong--He Knows Old Friends. CHICAGO, July 11.

The "grand old man of the midway, cnach of University of Chicago football teams 41 years until he left in 1933 to become coach at College of the Pacific, Stockton, Gal., took up the cudgel for his friends of many years as he said: "Why, I know these men and I know the sort of things they teach. If any professor tried to use his position to advocate theories of government opposed to our government, that would be wrong. To keep students informed, though, as' to different theories of government is proper education."
