A high game of 232 was rolled by Leo Carle of the Globe-Gazette, while A. Sondergaard set up 572 for the high series, an average of 191. In addition to Carle and Son- derraard, Hans G. Pusch, T.

NEW BOSSES SET OUT FOR TOP OF 1934 STANDINGS (Continued From Sports Pane) ton Braves both figure to be in the pennant scramble, making It a five- cornered affair for the second straight year, chiefly because each has unusually strong pitching prospects. The Cardinals also have enough speed and power to lift the club to the top, providing the Dean boys, Tex Carleton. Bill Hallahan and Jesse Haines all come through in the box. Virgil Davis, the slugging backstop, is the principal addition. _ The Braves will sorely miss their veteran pepper-box, Rabbit Maranville, the victim of a broken leg in an exhibition game two days ago but Manager Bill McKechnie has come up with another pitching "find," Clarence pickrel, to aid an already well-balanced staff.

Of the trio, Bob O'Farrell's Cincinnati Reds, occupants of the cellar in 193S, have shown the most improvement, especially in hitting, but it is a question how consistently the pitching staff will help, headed by Paul Derringer, Si Johnson, Dazzy Vance, Larry Benton and Sylvester Johnson. Casey Stengel, new boss of the Brooklyn Dodgers, also has limited pitching prospects, with a staff built around Van Mungo, and lacks real batting drive. The. Phillies, handicapped now by the absence of Dick Bartell with a spike wound, pin their hopes on Jimmy Wilson's ability to gets results from a flock of erratic pitching arms. The club also is gambling on the ability of two new infields to come through. It will miss the slugging of Davis and Klein.

UP) --If his showing in the Agua Caliente Handicap means anything, Riskulus is going to be a hard horse to beat in the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs May 5. By finishing second to his stable- mate, Gallant Sir, Riskulus boosted his Derby stock sky high. And unless he goes wrong in training he is more than likely to have a considerable following when the bluebloods line up at the barrier for the outstanding classic of American turf- dom. Riskulus ran rings around older horses and gave away weight to all the field that trailed him at Agua Caliente. He packed 108 pounds, which, according to the scale of weight for March, was the proper Dr. Dowell Heading Meeting on Direct Livestock Purchase DES MOINES, March 30. UP)--A conference to co-ordinate .preliminary data in the federal study of direct livestock marketing continued here today under the direction of Dr. A. A. Dowell of Washington. Attending the sessions are several federal officials and field men summoned here by Dr. Dowell. The survey, launched by Secretary Wallace, is to provide a basis for national legislation. , burden for a three year old to shoulder. Under the March scale, Pari-Mu- tuel and Boardwalker, who finished third and fourth, respectively, should have carried 128 pounds, on Rush and Bonny Grafton 124 and Prince Pest 128. But Puri-Mutuel carried only 116, Boardwalker 112, On Rush 102, Bon- Grafton 104 and Prince Pest 103. In the Kentucky Derby Rickulus and all the other colts will carry 126 pounds. Pennsylvanians Take Victory Over Local Pistol Team in Match The pistol team of the Cerro Gordo Rifle clu'D, inc., lost a third round match in the National Rifle association Gallery Interclub Pistol league No. 3 to the Johnston, Pa., Rifle club, by a score of 1,312 to 1,324.

UP)-Farm administration officials said today contracts for government purchase of live hogs for relief needs will likely be let tomorrow or Monday. Amounts to be purchased, markets where hogs will be bought, and the length of the time which the contracts will run will depend largely on the bids submitted, Dr. Louis H. Dean, economic adviser to the administration, told reporters. Contracts will be similar to those under which March purchases were made in allowing the government wide latitude in its purchasing activities. March contracts allowed the purchase of 15,000 hogs per day or any part of that number. It was held unlikely the amount will be as high in the new contract. 93 85 74 78 Emerson Decker ....84 97 93 95 90 90 285 266 25T 252 252 PRICES STEADY TO 5 CENTS UP Top Moves Up to $4.50 With Bulk Selling From $4 to $4.45. CHICAGO, March 30. iiB--The hog market displayed a little strength today despite weakness of the dressed pork trade and prices ranged from steady to 5 cents higher. The top moved up to $4.50 with tbe bulk selling from 54 to 54.45. Announcement of a continuation of government purchasing of hogs for relief purposes was probably a stimulus to the rather tired market. It was ascertained today that a 20 day program of buying for federal relief purposes will begin Monday to replace the one for two weeks which for all practical purposes, expired today. Bids were to be openec in Washington today for purchases of 100 to 210 Ib. hogs. Previously 100-240 Ib. animals had been taken The new program was planned to take in lower grade hogs than thr present one which calls for onl; good and choice animals. No offi cial announcement has been made on the matter, but it is though that probably around 7,500 heat will be taken daily at eight of th leading markets. This will probably give Chicago a quota of around 2,300 head, unchanged from the pre vious quota. Cattle trade was of tbe usua ·endangered. It is not expected, however, that same tenth school, have run of a second of he and Lombard! will do most all the catching. Either Manion or La Veque may be retained as auxiliary. Si Johnson, Paul Derringer and Larry Benton are rated the first three starting pitchers. The pilot goes strong for hurlers and may the wholesale slaughter of marks which accounted for 10 new records in 14 events last year will be duplicated, but records in the 50-yard dash, high hurdles, half and mile runs, medley mile relay, pole vault, and high jump are hi jeopardy. For instance, Kinch of Washington Cedar Rapids, and Nance of the ' . . , -- -- within a- the high iuraWand 50-yard dash times, and Clemens of Grant, Cedar Rapids, has bettered the mile mark. Schiebel of Davenport last week was an inch and one-half over the pole vault height, and Mauley of Clinton approached the high jump standard, while Ottumwa was less than a second away from the medley relay time In the half mile, Graves of Cherokee is capable of cracking his OTsm record.

Car., today had $1,000 in his pocket and the north and south open golf championship under his wing as rewards for a consistent 72-hole performance. Picard proved his mettle down the 36-hole stretch yesterday with a brilliant galaxy of tried campaigners close on his heels. His scores for the 72-hole event were 69-68-74-72--283, one under par. That score was three strokes better than those registered by the three who tied for runnerup. · Horton Smith, Harry Cooper and the national amateur champion, George T.

Thoroughly recovered from an ankle fracture suffered last spring, Cuyler has been more than keeping up with this year's crop of fleet youngsters. Yesterday, against the Pirates he raced from center field into right to snag a long drive by Gus Suhr, and actually passed Rightfielder Tuck Stainback en- route.

In her will, Mrs. McConnell left the major portion of her $3,000,000 estate to homeless cats and dogs and specific bequests totaling $205,000 to cousins. The animals were to be provided for through the Anti-Cruelty society of Chicago which was bequeathed 40 per cent, and the American Humane association of New York, 40 per cent.

Messenger, chairman of the board, stated: "Collections for the year were again disappointing, due to tha low crop yields In both the winter and spring -wheat areas, but were greater than collections for 1932. The Improvement In condition in the last lalf of the year, -which brought about an upward trend in sales, -was also reflected n our collections. EXPENSE? WERE CUT The largest contributing factors to the company's loss have been its Inability to absorb fixed expense incident- to its ownership of properties and expenses necessary for protection of Its receivables.

(JF--The Ihicago Tribune today said that _ igh market prices for hogs in Canada were the result of efforts on the part of Great Britain to stimu- ate the production of agricultural roducts among its own farmers md those of its provinces. Although Canada produces fewer hogs than the state of Iowa, the newspaper said the fact that the market in England has been opened :o Canadian packers on virtually an unrestricted basis, caused hog prices ;o advance far ahead of those in the United States. The Canadian price for hogs at one time was around $10 when the top in Chicago was around 54. Both the Canadian packer and the producer, the newspaper said, have been virtually guaranteed a profit over production and processing costs. Canada has protected its market against American competition in hogs and pork by enacting a tariff law which permits the government to levy a tax in addition to the regular duty of 52.50.
