10 BE-GAZETTE SPORTS SECTION St. Louis Browns to Keep "No Flag" Record This Year By HENRY McLEMOKE United Press IVriter JACKSONVILLE, Fla., (U.R)_ The St. Louis Browns are the only major league team never to win a pennant, and take it from this inexpert observer their record is safe for another year at least. I make this prediction with utter confidence, following a close study of the information gathered on tlie^ Brownies when I passed through San Antonio a few days ago. Two persons in complete agreement with me are Bill Deweitt, the general manager of the club and (he man who really i-urib it, and Fred Haney, the brand ne\\ manager. Haney, who managed !he Toledo Mud Hens last year, thinks he can make the team better than it was last year, however, and his optimism, oddly enough, is based on the fact that he is a newcomer, a stranger to his players. He believes that, having developed no Jikes or dislikes, he will be able to choose the best nine from the material available, and field a team completely free of friction and cliques. Haney brings a pleasing, but strong personality to the Browns. He can handle men, and that is the sort of boss the team needs. A bit down-trodden in spirit, the Browns can use a leader who refuses, to believe that seventh and eighth places are theirs by destiny, and that any higher goal is lutile. The chief worry of the Browns is the pitching staff, which, at the moment, is headed by the stubborn holdout, Buck Newsom Buck wants 520,000--a grand for each game he won last year--before he'll sign. When he signs and he will, his chief helpers will be Johnny Marcum, sore-arm boy from Buffalo; Fred Johnson, a sprightly gentleman of 43 who won a few games when he joined the club late last season; Ed Cole, who came up from Texas with a whale of a reputation, which was deflated a bit in major company Hussell Van Atta, another sore- arm doubtful, and James Walkup. The rookies are Bill Trotter, getting his second fling in the majors; Harry Kimberlin, who complains of a sore stomach: Bill Miller, a Hollywood product, and others of doubtful quality. The catching staff should be better, with Joe Glenn, obtained from the Yankees, doing most of the work. Billy Sullivan will scrap it out with Harold Spindel, who was drafted from 'Seattle,TM for the No. 2 catching spot. Nine Receive Letters in Rake Cage Squad ·HAKE--Letters were awarded to nine squad members oE the boys' basketball team for the 1938-39 season. Seven senior lettermen are Orlando Quame, Omer Folven, Lloyd Rygh, Percing Pure, Arnold Hodnefield, John Sorlien and Jerald Quam. Roger Hanson, junior, and Max Smith, sophomore, received letters. The team, coached by Ortell Forsluiid for the past three years, is county champion of Winncbago county for three consecutive years and won the sectional tournament two years. Its record for this season includes 20 victories out of 27 games. CALIFORNIA TOP IN A. A, U. MEET Tournament Moves Into Semifinals of Basketball Race DENVER, W 3 )--Two California teams led the charge for the National-A. A. U. basketball championship into the semifinal stage: Friday. One of them swept into tin. ncxt-to-last round after delivering tile most hair-raising overthrow in this 33rd renewal of basketball's "world series." in whicl 48 teams from all corners of the nation have bumped into defca since Sunday. The Bartlesville, Okla., Phillips fought down a thrilling challenge by the Colorado Springs Antlers for a- 28 to .24 upgrade victory Denver, pushing on through a bracket which has proven far easier than the flight in which Holly- v-'ood and the Phillips are stationed, outclassed a hard-trying Seattle, Wash,, Alpines team 3! to 21. In the mot hopelessly uneven game of the tournament, the San Francisco Olympics dealt the Chicago Harmons a 46 to 19 shellacking. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Divisions of Ladies Aid of Garner M. E.

Mo., (U.R)-- Jasketbsll teams from the West Virginia mountains, the California Drune belt, the Nebraska corn fields'and the, Kansas blue stem pastures were on equal footing Friday in their quest for the national intercollegiate basketball championships. The upset of Warrensburg. 45 to 31, by Peru was accomplished by the simple formula of outrunning the tired Mules. Peru, one of the fastest breaking teams in the meet, sent all five men galloping to the basket with short- shots and set-ups to demoralize the Missourians. San Diego, its squad cut to six men by injuries, limped into the semifinals with a 45 to 41 triumph over Manchester, of North Manchester, Ind. Capt. Milton Phelps made six baskets despite a painful charley-horse. Southwestern made its 53 to 37 victory over Maryville, Mo., Teachers look easy because of the smooth, deliberate manner of scoring. Lloyd Tucker made 25 of hfs teams' points.

WANTS FEDERAL COSTS REDUCED Byrd Demands Revamp Gut Expenditures as Well as Inefficiency WASHINGTON, (/Pi -- Senator Byrd (D., Va.) demanded Thursday that the government reorganization bill be fashioned into a two-edged weapon for cutting federal expenditures as well as inefficiency. Shortly 'belore the house-approved measure was brought up for debate in the senate, Byrd declared he would offer some "strong economy amendments." "They would provide for retrenchment wherever possible," he said, "as a way fo start cutting federal expenditures in the interest of a balanced budget.-" The reorganization debate appeared likely to overshadow f or j the present the controversy over another question of federal spending--President Roosevelt's request for a 5150,000,000 emergency relief fund. · * His recommendation, o n c e turned down by congress, is pending before a house subcommittee, which called WPA Administrator F. C. Harrington back to the capital Thursday for further examination on relief needs. . ' Advocates of the Byrd proposals expressed the belief they would give the senate economy bloc a rallying point at a time when many members are talking about cutting expenditures as a means of inspiring business confidence. Byrd's proposals were expected to draw.the fire of administration leaders, whose emphasis has been primarily on increasing the efficiency of federal bureaus Supporters of the bill, however, argue that government reorganization inevitably would bring savings. ilUDAY, MARCH 17, 1938 M3ME GY O.8.K.
