MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1943 WhM]Tt^QuitRacing at Season's End Spotlight Sports By Roger Rosenblum Probably the most confused r.'f all the setups in the sporting world today is boxing. It's hard enough to keep tabs on ail the fighters trying to get a crack at one of the weight division crowns, without trying to figure out who is recognized as the champion. * * ¥ For a number of years now the National Boxing association and tiie New York State Athletic c o m m i s s i o n have been trying to get together, without m u c h success, t o c r o w n a champ mutually in the different classes. A while back the two organi- z a t i o n s h a d b e e n at peace Sammy Ansolt lor.a year, with both agreed upon the titleholder in all but one of the eight weight divisions. * * * The retirement of Sammy An- eott as lightweight champion, however, opened the rift once more. Abe Greene, president of the NBA, said that he and John J. Phalen, chairman of the New York group, had agreed on an elimination tournament · among the lightweights, with ihe survivors to be matched to decide the championship. ¥ * * The Athletic commission, however, probably felt that the division would be without a champion too long if it waited for the end of the elimination tourney. Therefore it went ahead and decided that the winner of the Beau Jack- Tippy Lai-kin fight should be named champ. * * * NBA, on the other hand, will not recognize Jack, winner of Ihe bout, and plans to go right ahead with its plans for the elimination series. It admits that both Jack and Larkin are two of the leading contenders, but still won't change its mind. * .* * Perhaps when NBA concludes its tournament, the winner will be matched with the New York champion, with both groups agreeing to recognize the winner as the national champ. Thai, however, is still a mutter o£ conjecture. * * * NBA and the New York commission are still in disagreement in three other weight classes. Some months ago Manuel Ortiz beat Lou Salica in » California bout that was booked as a bantamweight title affair. * * * NBA promptly recognized Ortiz, but New York, claiming that the bout went only 12 rounds instead of the 15 designated as the title distance in that stale, declared Salica still champ * * * New York looks upon Willie Pep, recent conqueror of Chalky Wright, as the featherweight boss, while the NBA recognizes Jackie Wilson. Little Dado ects Ihe NBA rating as flyweight ruler. New York floes not list a champion in this classification * # * For many years the middleweight class was in so much of a mixup that it was often referred to as the "muddleweight" division This difference was finally cleared up when Tony Zale won a bout that both organizations sanctioned * * ¥ The National Boxing association claims jurisdiction in quite a few states, probably a majority of them. New York, however, has always remained aloof from the NBA. It feels New York stages most of the big championship fights and more of boxing's big gates are to be had there. It therefore feels it has the right to rule boxing there with or without NBA agreemenl. * * * With tile two groups feeling as they do. there's little hope of everlasting peace between them. That year of co-operation was really a lea t. Commissioner Landis to Reveal Baseball's Plans MIKE WAS PLENTY WILD BOSTON, lift -- When Gordon (Mickey) Cochrane played baseball at Boston University under Bill Stewart, veteran National League umpire, he possessed the strongest throwing arm in college. Bill avers t h a t Black Mike was a third baseman who "could throw a ball higher over first base than any man I ever saw.'' RECTAL COLON PROSTATE RHEUMATISM (ARTHRITIS) (Octozone Therapy) SINUS Dr.R.W.SHULTZ,D.O. 218-219-220 First National Bank Bldg. By TOMM¥ DEVINE CHICAGO, (U.R)--Baseball Commissioner Kenesaw M. Landis Tuesday reveals the conditions under which the major leagues will be permitted to continue war-time operations. The 70-year-old diamond czar reached an agreement with defense transportation Director Joseph B. Eastman a week ago on the type of schedule the majors would pluy in 1943 and the manner in which spring training would be conducted. The exact nature of the "agreement" however, has not been revealed even to American and National league Presidents William Harridge and Ford Frick * * * Landis obtained from President Roosevelt a year ago the "green light" letter that gave approval for major league play last season. The conditional "go" that Eastman has provided is considered equally important * * .* Early arrivals for the meeting admitted they were "completely in the dark" about what Landis may have in mind. "We'll know before long, however," they said, "what we can and can't do about spring training trips and about the type of schedule we'll play." The reluctance of the two Chicago clubs, the Cubs and White Sox, to go ahead with a survey of facilities at French Lick, Ind., the site tentatively selected for their spring training camp after a proposed trip to California was cancelled, was taken as a "tip" teams may be told to train at home. French Lick is 278 miles from Chicago and some observers did not believe even that much travel would be permitted * * * The only sound basis for any of the speculation about what Landis intends to do was furnished by the distribution of "model" 140 game schedules for the club representatives to study. * * * Under provisions of this schedule the season would open · April 27 and close Sept. 26. The playing program adopted at the majors' meeting in December set April 13 as the opening day for a 154 game schedule. The majors have played a 154 game card annually since 1920 The 140 game schedule was tried in 1919, but abandoned after a one year test. American League President Harridge said most baseball officials were opposed lo a 140 game schedule. "The April 27 opening is satisfactory." he said, "but I believe most of the club owners in both leagues want to play 154 games. We can do that and still stay within the date limitations of the shorter schedule by increasing the number of our doubleheaders." * # * The delayed opening would permit teams to train at or near home without seriously hampering their conditioning. * * * The 1942 major league schedules called for four east-west trips. In the original 1943 program the number of intersectional trips was cut to three to save 22,000 miles of train travel. It was considered likely in some quarters that the east-west swings now would be reduced to two and that six and seven game series would replace the two-three- and-four game series now in vogue. As another means of reducing the strain on transportation facilities, the size of team traveling squads may be cut from 25 to 20 players. Dodgers to Use Yale's Facilities NEW YORK, IU.R)--Unless the major league meeting in Chicago passes some restrictive rules, the Brooklyn Dodgers will train at Yale, John McDonald, former secretary of the club, said Tuesday. McDonald said he had inspected the Yale university facilities and found them "fully satisfactory." The only hitch is a possible decision by the armv to use the facilities there for .military purposes. The army, according to McDonald; is expected to make a decision by the middle of this month and if it does not use the site, both the Dodgers and their International league larm club-the Montreal Royals--will train there.

(U.R)--Indiana university captured its seventh consecutive non-conference victory Monday night, defeating Butler, 42-27, behind the Il-point assault of Ward Williams, 6-foot, three-inch center. Ralph Hamilton, high-scorinTM forward of Branch McCracken's Big Ten threat, was injured less than two minutes before the final gun when he crashed into an unprotected corner under the Butler goal, bruising his back Extent of Hamilton's injuries was undetermined, but I. 0. fans were hoping the leading Hoosier scored would not be lost for the~Big Ten opener with Ohio State Saturday night. Hamilton scored seven points for runner-up honors, bringing his season total to 84. Glenn Miller, giant Butler center, tallied seven points for the Bulldogs. After Miller drew first blood with a field goal, Hamilton and Ed Denton scored fielders to give the Hoosiers a lead which they never relinquished. Indiana led 24-12 at iialflimc, and increased that margin by two more points during the second half as a game Butler team, led by Fred Hunckler. Miller, and Bradcn sparked the Butler attack. The victory extended Indiana's pve-Bi» Ten string to seven, and sept the Hoosiers ahead of all Big Ten competition in the non- conference record. The triumph also lengthened 1. U. r s scoring total fo 370 paints, for an average of 52.6, to their opponcts' 260 points, an average of 37.1. In the Indiana-Butler rivalry series, which began in 1897, the Hoosiers now hold 19 victories to lour lor Butler. I.

Patty Berg Will Return to Golfing MOBILE, Ala., (/P)--Patty Berg, the freckle-faced golf star, believes physical fitness is more important during wartime than ever, and she is returning to the links after five months in bed to live up to her creed. * * * Injured in an automobile accident that broke one of her legs and caused other serious injuries, Patty came here to recuperate and regain the form that once won her the woman's amateur national go ir championship. * * * When she gets that touch back --and Andy Mortimer, manager of the Mobile country club who is supervising her training, says it won't be long--Patty will start a nationwide tour, playing exhibition matches for the benefit of various war relief programs. "It is important for everyone, men and women of all ages, to keep fit during peace or war--but more especially during wartime when reserves ot physical energy may be called into service during emergencies,'' the red-haired Minneapolis pro declared. * * * Here is a typical day on her rigorous schedule: Up at 7:30. an hour or so of stiff gym work. a Ions bicycle ride, an afternoon of jfolf under Mortimer's tutelage, mild recreation that evening and (o bed at 10:15. * * * Patty kncnvs it would be impossible for many people to follow such a routine, but a modified version, she says, would make for a happier population of those working for peace.

It was the 57th straight win for Pep. Pep marked up Dell 'Orto with his fast left hand early in the bout and never let the ambitious New Yorker hurt him. The official scorer gave Pep nine of the 10 rounds, Dell 'Orlo winning only the first Pep weighed 129, Dell 'Orto 133. GREATEST ROSE BOWL LOS ANGELES, (iP}~The biggest crowd drove the most automobiles in Rose Bowl history to see the Georgia-UCLA game-^despite gasoline and tire rationing. Bowling Has Earned Over One Billion By JACK CUDDY NEW YORK, (U.B--The war has rolled a money "strike" for bowling, providing the crashing pins game with 17,000,000 participants who spent approximately S1.G2G,- 000.000 during the past season. These totals for 1942 represent an increase of about 35 per cent in all departments over 1941 according to Al Cirillo, managing editor of the National. Weekly Pictorial Bowling News * * w Cirillo. who has just completed a national survey, smiles' condescendingly upon the other popular, "national" snarls-- '.ike baseball, football and basketball. * * * "Never in the history of the game have bowlers taken the sport so seriously," he said "Even with the cancellation of the American Bowling Congress for the first time since its inception, the craze has continued on all fronts." With 600,000 howlers in the armed services, one would expect that the game would bo hurt to n certain extent, but that's nofso according to Cirillo, who emphasizes that the stream of dollars pouring into the pockets of war w o r k e r s--men and xvomen-- means more games rolled throughout the country, at all hours o[ the day or night. The big contribution is being made by women defense workers, who have provided about 4,000,000 new bowlers since Pearl Harbor, Meanwhile service men on leave from their posts bowl in the cities and towns. At some of these municipal alleys, the owners arrange for uniformed men to roll free, realizing: that they will more than pay their way by bringing in civilians to bowl with them. * * * Editor Cirillo says that the bowling year is restricted to about 250 days, eliminating the hot period from mid-June to mid- September. During the season, he claims, the average bowler spends approximately SI.50 a week--not including refreshments. Concerning priorities for bowling equipment, Cirillo explains that virtually none of Ihe regular bowling balls--with their two- inch hard-rubber shell, are manufactured any move, although most dealers have them on hand because wholesalers stocked up when they saw war coming. No more pin-setting machines ai-e being manufactured because or priorities, and thc accent is on! human pin-stickers. But there is a shortage here too because so many of the young alley-hoppers have joined thc service. There is a movement afoot now to brin^ in girl pin-setters, but they must be husky to stand the work. Major league ball players and managers continue to enter the bowling same, just as they did in thc past. Some of the well known operators arc Freddie Filisimmons, J i m m y Dykes, Lefty Grove, Ray Schalk, Bob O'Farrell, Red Faber and Everett Scott. Dykes operates on a large scale, according: (o Cirillo. oivninr a Iar*e chain of alleys in Philadelphia. * * ¥ Who is the largest individual bowling operator in the United Stales? Cirillo said he thought it was Peter Parkas of New York, who started years ago with one six- alley emporium, and .now controls 11 of thc largest establishments in the city. SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON NEW YORK, OT--There's been a lot of talk about post-war planning lately, so why not do a little of it in the sports field, too? . . Nobody ever has proved that international sports lead to friendship, least of all the guys who had to settle some of the more famous disputes raised in the Olympic games, but we still believe that it's easier lor people to understand one another when they play the same games than when they remain total strangers . . . And the best games we can think of for international competition are soccer football and basketball . Soccer is known as the game that is played in every country and only the U. S. apparently doesn't give it the attention it deserves . . . Basketball is a local product but maybe our soldiers and sailors will give it a good start in other countries. SUGGESTION Walt Hanson of Long Branch (N. J.) recalls a conversation with Jack Doyle, old-time Tiger scout, that is worth the attention of big-league ball clubs in these days of training near home . . Doyle's idea was t h a t the teams should play exhibitions wherever possible in the smaller cities near their home towns . . .

McDERMOTT CORAL GABLES, Fla., (U.R)-- The turf's greatest money-winning horse of all time--Whirlaway-- ill be retired to slud ;it the con- lusion of tlie 1943 racing season, Trainer Ben Jones said Tuesday. Several conferences between Jones and Warren Wright, owner of the thoroughbred, top horse on the Calumet farm roster, brought about the decision, Jones revealed. "Mr. Wright has been figurine on retiring Whirlaway for some time," Jones said. "He plans lo use him for stud purposes and while something may happen to alter that decision, it appears final now." The five-year-old 'chestnut has been assigned top weight of 132 pounds for the March 6 running of (he $25,000 Widener cup at Hialeah park. He never has won with more than 130 pounds on his back and will spot six pounds to Charles S. Howard's Mioland. Whirlaway, winner of $560,911 for an all-time record, will be shooting at $150,000 this year before closing the books of his life- shown fine form in early season games. Wiese and Gibert hold down the forward berths. Wiese didn't start the opening game against Michigan State, but after entering the encounter as .a substitute took high point honors with 11 markers. He's been a fixture since and has an aggregate of 32 points lu his credit. Wiese is six-foot-two Gibert saw limited service last season, but has improved sufficiently to edge some leUermen for a regular's berth * * * Doyle accounted for 85 points In league games a year aso. In addition to heine a good shot he's a clever defensive performer. Strack hasn't shown much offensive talent, but the fact Michigan has held its opponents to an average of 33 points per fame attests the fine defensive work he's turned i». * * * In addition to Wiese and Strack other promising sophomores include Harold Anderson, a forward; Jerry Mullaney, a center; and Don Lund, a guard.
