MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 25 1935 TH1KTKKW Out of The PRESSBOX Bj AL 8UTCHEIJ. ' IT'S THE KOV1NG BKE ; "When I first began boxing in .' California," J a m e s "Gentleman Jim" Corbett said in Cincinnati one time, "my father used to lecture me. 'Stick to the job in the bank, Jimmy, b'y,' said he. 'It's a fine salary you do be getting- there, and as long as you live you can kape that fine job at the desk. Remember, a "rolling stone gathers no moss."' * * * "But I kept on fighting," Corbett said, "and father kept on panning me. Finally I fought with John L. Sullivan, and. you know what happened. When I gyt home I carelessly peeled a thousand dollar bill off a roll as big as a cabbage and tossed it over to Had. 'Just a little pipe money for you, tather,' I said. 'Part of what I made in my last fight.' Father's grin began at the corners and kept on expanding. His eyes twinkled. 'Ah. Jimmy, b'y,' said he, 'it's the roving bee that gets the honey.' " * * * THE PACE GROWS. Track enthusiasts decided in 1932 that the peak of athletic performance had been reached . . . that the Olympic stadium cinderpath was the world's fastest . . . that records could never fall again as they did when the best performers of the world blasted a score of marks off the books under as nearly perfect conditions as had ever been known. * # # The track men overlooked the hard-baked, deeply ballasted cinders at Princeton, N. J. They could not predict that the Cunning-ham-Bonthron-Lovelock and Peacock-Owens duels were just below the horizon. They did not know that within three years after the tenth Olympic games, 23 world records would be broken, bettered or equaled, including the times and distances in a. dozen Olympic events. * # * During the last three years, in fact, the competitive pace has been faster and more startling than it was before or even during the 1932 games. * * * Such record-smashers as .liissc Owens, Eulace Peacock, Keith Brown, Bill Bonthron, Jack Tor- ranee and Walter Marty were not even participants in the last international games. Others, including Glenn Hardin, Glenn Cunningham and Ben Eastman, were beaten in the Olympic competition. * * * Eastman and Owens have given time and distance tbeir worst beating in the last two seasons. The former Stanford star's come-back in 1934 resulted in successful attacks --on three records, including the 880- yard run. At the same time he was finally given credit for the 140-yard mark of 46.4 seconds which he had registered in March, 1932. * * * Owens, in a single afternoon at Ann Arbor in this years' Big Ten championships, tied the 100-yard record of :09.4 and eclipsed the world standards for the broad jump, 220-yard dash and 220-yard low hurdles. * * * The Ohioan's best jump measured 26 feet, 8 1-4 inches, but he was beaten in the National A. A. U. championships by Peacock, whose winning jump of 26 feet 3 inches also bettered the existing world record. * * * THE RECORDS World record performances made and officially approved since the 1932 Olympics: lln meter hiRh hurdles--11.2 by Fcrcy Brnnl, U.

"CRUCIAL" SUMMER SET IN MAJORS BE-GAZETTE RTS Pitching Star Handcuffs Mason City Legion in Final, 6-0 CEDAR FALLS ON WAY TO CONTEST FOR STATE TITLE Johnny Thompson Gets Hits for Whole Club in Tilt Against Falls Nine. CEDAR FALLS, July 25.--Too much. Jimmy Rosauer--that's the story of Mason City's 6 to 0 defeat in the final game of the American Legion intcrdistrict series with Cedar Falls. The Mason Cityans lost here Wednesday as they were shackled by the speed and deceptive curve ball of the Cedar Falls ace pitcher. Johnny Thompson, Mason City catcher, was the only visitor to get a hit, earning a pair of .blows as he cracked the ball down third base line early in the game, and getting the second as he bunted cleanly in the seventh to start the inning. Jim Mulcahy and Everett Fletcher boosted big swats to the outfield, but both were taken in. Sets Down Pair. It was the ninth inning before Mason City managed to get a runner to third base, as Rosauer eased up with the ball game on ice. A walk and a hit batsman put the runners on the lines, but the star pitcher sent a pair of Mason City- ans down swinging to end the game. Bolt's Double Best. The home club scored its first run in the third when Aikoy, third baseman, lived on an error by John "Monk" Hert, Mason City shortstop, and Conner's double saw him across the plate. With one away in the fifth, Kepler lived on an error, again made by Hert, and Bill Bolt walked after Kepler had stolen second. Both runners advanced on Fletcher's wild throw and Conners drew a pass to fill the sacks. Rosauer then aided his own cause when he looped a hit into shallow left to score both Kepler and Bolt. Home on Error. Rink Conners scored in the seventh when he connected for a safety through short, stole second and came home when Catcher Thompson's throw to Bob Cookmau at third went into the outfield. The home clan did its final scoring in the ninth when Poorman walked and stole second and came home on Bolt's double into deep center--the best hit ball of the aft ernoon. Bolt scored when the catcher again overthrew the bag in his effort to catch him stealing third.

Seein' the DAY'S STARS BENGALS IN BOTH TOP AND SECOND SPOT IN STANDING Percentages Favor Yanks as Arithmetic Shows Tigers Ahead by Half Game. By HUGH S. FTJLLEKTON, JR. Associated Press Sports Writer. Mickey Cochrane and his Detroit Tigers found themselves Thursday n the ambiguous position of being both first and second in the American league. After handing the Yankees a neat 4 to 0 trimming yesterday in the third game of their important series, their standing showed 54 victories and 35 defeats, while the jfanks had 51 games won and 33 lost. By addition and subtraction it was simple to show that Detroit was a half game ahead, but the percentages favored the Yanks .6071 to .6067. Game and a Half. The Giants entered Thursday's doublchcader finale of their battle with St. Louis for the league leadership with the comparative l.uge lead of 1V» games. They squared the series at two- all Wednesday when Carl Hubbcll outpitched Dizzy Dean and got the benefit of one inning of effective hitting to win 4 to 2. For the second time Cochrane sprang a veteran hurler on the Yanks and saw craft subdue them. 'General" Alvin Crowdcr, the ancient but by no means feeble righthander, mowed the Yanks down with four virtually meaningless hits. White Starts Clubbing. The Tigers stepped off on the right foot when Jo-Jo White, the first man up, clubbed Charley Ruffing for a homcrun and they kept it going to the tune of 11 hits. The rest of the scoring came in the thin when Ruffing's two walks and three hits brought in 'three tallies. Pepper Martin, the brilliant bu often erratic Cardinal third sacker brought the ladies' day crowd of 29,000 on to its feet in the third inning when he sprinted to second base on Dick BarteU's fumble, stole third and scored on Jack Rothrock's fly to give St. Louis a 1 to 0 lead over the Giants. Tosses A T ,vay Runs. He turned joy into gloom in the seventh when, after Mel Ott had singled and Hank Leiber had doubled, he uncorked an epic wild heave that let both runners score and Travis Jackson reach third. Two more Giant hits wound up the 5-run rally. The Chicago Cubs slashed the Cardinals' margin to a single game ly taking their second doublcheadcr in a row from the Dodgers, 9 to 3 and 7 to 6. The second game went 11 innings before Ken O'Dea's homer broke it tp after Danny Tayor had hit for the circuit with the bases full in the ninth, and the Cubs had replied with a two-run rally to tie the score. Bucs Take Pair. Pittsburgh also won a doubleheader, beating the Phillies S to 6 and 4 to 3 as Woody Jensen produced a circuit swat in each game. The Indians did likewise with a _reat outburst of late-inning slugging that produced 33 hits and beat ;he Senators 10 to 6 and 13 to 8. They moved into fourth place in the American league standing ahead of ;he Red Sox, who took a 6 to 3 licking from the Browns. The Reds moved into fifth place n the National, one point ahead of Brooklyn, by turning back the Philies 8 to 4 in their fifth night game of the season.

OB--Weary typesetters for tile baseball extras mig-ht as well set up the word "crucial" nnd set it aside in a handy spot for the rest of the season. It's going to be a most "crucial" summer. Figuring on three-cornered pennant races in both major leagues, no less than 58 games of the "crucial" variety must be played between the hot flag contenders--it they stay hot--before the bands strike up and the alibis start flyin:t Sept. 29. Here arc the "crucial" situations: National league: The Giants and the Cardinals must meet in 11 more games--six at New York and five at St. Louis, including today's dou- blchcadci- at Pt. Louis. To date, the Giants hold the edge, seven games to four, winning fou r out of six at home and three out of five at St. Louis. Cubs Have Eight.

The Yankees hold the edge, winning four out of seven played 'at Detroit and breaking even at" home with three victories "and three defeats, a margin the Tigers can wipe out today. Sox Have Plenty. The two teams still have plenty of business left to do with the surprising White Sox, who are only four games behind the leaders and going at a steady pace with a long- borne stay ahead of them. The Yankees have 14 gumes left to play with Jimmy Dykes' men, eight in four clays at Chicago and six at home; the Tigers must play them 10 times more--six of them at Detroit. Cbi- =ago holds an S to 4 game edge over :he Tigers and are even with the Yankees at five-all.
