By HUGH S. FULLERTON, Jr. Associated Press Sports Writer The plague of injuries which was one big reason why the Cleveland Indians did not figure in last year's American league pennant race, seems to have been left behind with the close of the 1935 campaign. Grave doubts as to the condition of Bruce Campbell, the outfielder who was laid low in midseason by spinal meningitis, and little Frankie Pytlak, the Tribe's only reliable catcher who suffered a breakdown in 1935, followed Cleveland into training camp this spring. Two regular season games however indicate there is little cause for worry among those sources. Between them Campbell and Pytlak made seven of the Tribe's 17 hits Wednesday as they plastered the world champion Tigers 14 to 7. Campbell clouted four, including- a homerun Tribe Stops Bridges. Off to a bad start when Detroit belted Willis Hudlin for four runs in the third, the Tribe fell on the World series hero, Tommy Bridges in the same inning when Hal Trosky hit a homer with two aboard and scored eight runs. The heavy hitting which marked the opening games Tuesday continued right down the line with onlj 2 year old Harry Gumbert of the Giants turning in an outstanding mound performance. Gumbert lim ited the Dodgers to four hits, includ ing a boundary belt by Oscar (Ox Vernon Kennedy Set for Opening Contest of New Loop Season CHICAGO, WP--Lloyd Vernon Kennedy, young Chicago White Sox right bander who pitched last season's only major league no hit Ei\me, was due for his formal 1936 unveiling Thursday against the St. Louis Browns. Kennedy, in his freshman year, achieved his masterpiece last Aug. 31 at the expense of the Cleveland Indians at- Comiskcy park. Ho struck out five batsmen, walked four and polished off his performances by driving- in three runs v-ith a triple. Al Thomas, a former White Sox star, was Ken- icdy's pitching foe Thursday. denly his "backspin is pretty ;ure to give the lads from Down Under some trouble. Wally Gaddis, Iowa basketball player and former star of the Dunkerton prep quintet, has instituted a $10,000 damage suit against George Kelso, Vinton truck driver based on injuries suffered in an Quin Dietz and Orville Witte, former Mason City and Rockwell high school pitchers, will be the likely choices to start for the Trojans n the opening contest, while Evertt Fletcher and Jack Wallace will e No. 1 men when the Mohawk linging assignment is made.

Lester Duke announced definitely that the Grinnell track team would not compete at the Kansas relays next Saturday, but instead would concentrate upon the Iowa State Teachers relays at Cedar Falls. The decision to abandon the trip to Kansas was made after it became apparent that Lynn Schlotterbeck, star half miler and member of the mile relay team, had not recovered sufficiently from injuries sustained in the Central intercollegiate meet at Notre Dame last February, to compete at Lawrence. Duke plans to take a full squad to Cedar Falls. PIttsbiirRh Cincinnati 1 0 \B H ro A G.

Bees Even Series. The Boston Bees, abandoning th humble role for which they had bee cast, did the day's second best jo of hitting when they pounded Philadelphia pitching- for 16 blows and evened the series with a 12 to 4 triumph. The Phils made only one less nit but couldn't come close to matching the nine run outburst with which the Bees drove Joe Bowman to the showers in the fourth. The Yankees belted three Washington pitchers for an even dozen safeties but went down for the second time, 6 to 5, when the Senators laid into Monte Pearson and Johnny Murphy for four hits, which were joined with an error and two passes for four runs in the seventh inning. Sox Outslug Browns. The White Sox outslugged the Browns to win the other American league game 6 to 3 as Monroe Stratton hurled effectively in the clutch- The Red Sox and Athletics put the season's first postponement on the records when it rained at Boston.

Parmalee, acquired from New York last winter, gave only seven blows in a duel with Bill Lee and Frisch's homer with Terry Moore aboard in the fifth won the game. The Pirates downed the Reds, 7 to 6, scoring their winning run in the ninth or hits by Woody Jensen and Paul Waner and Ival Goodman's error. H'flry 111 4 Colc'an rf ."

By WILLIAM WEEKES Associated Tress Sports Writer. CHICAGO. (vB--Jay Bcrwanger, Chicago's famous "flying Dutch- m a n " will make that old college try to prove he is Olympic decathlon timber this week-end in the Kansas university relay games. The Dubuque, Iowa, husky who didn't have much trouble establishing a reputation as a "one man" football team during three sparkling seasons on the midway, so far has not done so well in his efforts to become a "one man" track team. His accomplishments, or lack thereof in the Kansas decathlon, may determine whether he will pursue his quest for a place on the American Olympic squad. Oddly enough, Bcnvanger has encountered most of his difficulties in the five field events of the man- killing test--the events in which he was expected to excel. He has shown consistent improvement in the hurdles and flat races, but the shotput, discus and javelin caused im no end of worry and bother. Al though his best mark in the shot was close to 48 feet, he has not been able to better 45 feet this year. He has not consistently approached his top mark of nearly 200 feet in javelin, and his discuss efforts have been disappointing. Ned Merriam, Berwangcr's coach, believes worrying over "form" in the field events has handicapped the youngster. He is hopeful, however, that big Jay will forget all about form at Kansas in favor of good old-fashioned use of his tremendous power. Totals 33 11 27 12 sBattccl st. LOUI.

LAWRENCE, Kans., (.Pi--The entry list for the decathlon event at the Kansas relays next week-end looked Thursday like someone had started picking names off midwest- em football rosters. Morethan a score of performers have elected to try the gruelling all-around test, attracting more at- .ention this year because of the ap- )roaching Olympic games. Among football players seekin; 0 dethrone the defending champion "·lyde Coffman, are Jay Berwanger known as Chicago's "one man football team;" Lloyd Cardwell, University of Nebraska star; Don Elser 220 pound football player from Notre Dame, and Henry Mahley, University of Missouri. Five events of the decathlon will be run off Friday, and the remainder Saturday morning. Glenn Cunningham, holder of the world record for the mile, returns to his old track to compete in the 1 500 meter race, one of the events designed as an official preliminary Olympic tryout. He holds the meet record of 3:35.3 for the event. Other Olympic p r e l i m i n a r y event? are the 400 meter hurdles, the 3,000 meter steeplechase and the hop, step and jump.
