By L. E. SKELAEY. Associated Press Sports Writer DES MOINES, CB--Your Uncle Sam found his Olympic track and field prospects considerably bright ened Monday after taking a look a the record breaking performances at the Drake relays. Heartening, indeed, were thi smashing exhibitions of Glenn Cun ningham, ruler of the world's mil ers; Don Lash, Indiana's durable little distance ace; Ray Ellinwood Chicago's sophomore quarter-mil sensation; and Alton Terry, the big javelin tosser from the Texas pan handle. This quartet of super-track per formers, each of whom indicated he has what it takes for Olympic com petition, were standouts in an amaz ing field that cracked three Amen can records and established five nev, Drake relays marks in a whirlwim of action here Saturday. Cunningham Ready. Cunningham, the veteran o America's foot-racing wars, showei he undoubtedly will be "right" when the Olympics roll around. The for mer Kansas ace did the 1,000 yards against an allstar field in 2 minutes 11.2 seconds, trimming a full seconc off the former American outdoor mark by Larry Brown of Pennsylvania in 1921. Glenn's performance was slightly more than a second away from his indoor mark of 2:10.1 for the event, but the manner in which he whipped through the race should reassure the Olympic fathers they can rely upon him for a great 1,500 meters demonstration at Berlin this surn- er. Lash, the national cross country champion, helped himself to a new American outdoor two mile mark of 9:10.6. The little Hoosier knifed exactly three seconds off the old record of 9:13.6 made at the Drake games in 1932 by another Indiana star, Henry Brocksmith. Hoosiers Junk Record. The little fellow came back an hour after hanging up his two mile mark .. to anchor Indiana's record smashing four mile team which ran 17:40.2, discarding a 14 year old record of 17:45 by Illinois in 1922. The third American record to fall under the relentless assault was the javelin mark of 222 feet, 6% inches by Jimmy Dewers. It remained for the brawny Terry of Hardin-Simmons college to dim the old record with a stupendous toss of .222.65 feet. Ellinwood, who bettered the world indoor 440 yard mark this winter, won the special quarter mile race in :48.5, clipping one and two-tenths seconds from the previous mark made by Eric Wilson of Iowa back in 1924. Iowa Mark Broken. Other new carnival records were Illinois' 1:01.1 race in the 480 yard shuttle hurdles relay, destroying Iowa's four year old mark of 1:01.6; the 7:52 mark by the Pittsburgh Kansas State Teachers in the two (Continued on Pace 11) UlLA'PHIA--3 AE H PO A Inney Ib 5 0 U 1 loses cf 3 2 0 0 B.

DOPEY DAN, this department's oohsh football forecaster and silly tatistician . . . comes up with the startling assertion. Jimmy Foxx will ^iit seven home'runs in Fenway park that's Boston) this year. Let's see how Egbert gets that jray. First: Last year Foxx hit ex- iCtly one homer in dear old Fen- vay. Each team plays 77 games at iome and 11 in each of the other aajor league towns. Therefore, :.'~oxx should hit seven at home. · * * * Figuring he'll be no better nor .rorse than he was last year, Foxx herefore should clout 28 homeruns gainst 36'he smacked as of 1935. low's that? Well, he hit 17 of his 6 hom'ers in Shibe park, his home icld, where be appeared in 77 ·ames, and where he will play this and Radiator Service Central Auto Electric Co. 25 First Street S. W. PHONE 494 year in 11 games. It's easy to hit 'em in Shibe park. . Mr. Foxx, himself says, however, that the reason he got only one homerun in Fenway last year was the quality of pitching he faced in the Hub. That's a nice thing for him to say, anyway. * * * Speaking of homeruns . . . Ray Ekedal of Austin, Minn., who hit one out of the park Saturday afternoon when Austin high school lost to Mason City, probably thinks that playing baseball is soft stuff. Coach Phil Golberg borrowed Ekedal from the Austin track squad last Saturday, put Mm in a baseball suit . . . and he whanged one over the right field fence on his second trip to the plate. » « * Many a big business enterprise that sought to reach out and enlarge its scope of operations by buying up another concern in the ?ame line has subsequently discovered that it paid too high a price for the additional unit In fact, it sometimes happens that financial troubles and management difficulties ensue upon such deals. That's what ' Owner Walter D. Briggs and Manager Mickey Cochrane of the world's champion Detroit baseball team axe beginning to think about their purchase of Cochrane's old pal, A] Simmons, from the Chicago White Sox. * # * It isn't anything Al has done or said that caused the disturbance. He's one of the best fellows in base- ball to get along with. He has an even temper, a companionable disposition, and is ready to give Detroit everything he has this season. But the other players, who were in Tiger uniforms last year and brought home the bacon, don't feed so very good over the hiring of a new man--even such a brilliant performer as Simmons--and paying him three or four times as much as they are drawing. They wonder why the management did not show more recognition of their own achievements- attained without any help from Simmons. , It's a real problem for Briggs and Cochrane to handle. * * * Coach John Niemiec, football and baseball pilot at Columbus college, never cares to discuss the Minnesota-Notre Daine grid game of 1927. "The press eulogized me as a hero," he says . . . "but I felt like a chump. It is true I scored Notre Dame's lone touchdown but I always remember the last 25 seconds of that game. The Gophers sent in a substitute end. He had the appearance of a seven-foot giant and so we knew what Minnesota was going to do on their last play of .the game. * * * "I was to cover this gargantuan. The ball went back and back dropped the , pass thrower. Surely enough, he aimed for my man and while I was busy climbing up this 'tree' he caught the ball on his finger tips. It meant a score and when Farmer kicked a placekick the game had to end 7, to 7," American Boxscores Sunday's Games SI.

(Central Press Soundphoto) Johnny Allen Forgets to Scrap, Hurls Ball Games Indians Beat Browns* in Longest Game of Season. By ANDY CLARKE Associated Press Sports Writer. Steve O'Neil!, pilot of the Cleveland Indians, seems to have diverted Johnny Allen's battling spirit into useful channels. Allen was traded fey the Yankees allegedly for his recalcitrant attitude. They were satisfied with his pitching but his bent for becoming- embroiled with umpires, managers or anybody else who happened to be in a combative mood was at least partly responsible for the New York team putting him on the market. Allen, under the guidance of O'Neill, seems to he concentrating his energies on winning ball games this year, however. Sunday he turned in a fine all-around performance as the Indians defeated the St. Louis Browns 8 to 7 in a 6^ inning marathon, the longest ;ame thus far in the season. Dizzy Holds Pirates. The game was the highlight of a' day's play which saw Dizzy Dean hold the -Pirates to six hits as the Cubs won 3 to 2 and Lou Gehrig and Jimmie Poxx, the cannon men of the American- league, both Doomed out homers as the Yankees beat, the Red Sox 12 to 9 in a slugfest. Allen allowed the Browns only two hits in the last 8 2-3 innings but the stunt that labeled him a fighter was his driving slide into "'.atcher Rollie Hemsley to score the winning run in the last of the sixteenth. The force of that slide knocked the ball from the catcher's band and made Allen the hero and Hemsley the chump. Hemsley was no "lucky Rollie" in (Continued on Pace 11) T Shorn of Title, German Has Still to Determine Who Manager May Be.

The huge German, who toppled Dan O'Mahoney from the heavyweight throne in" Madison Square Garden March 2, had a hectic weekend, hut didn't enjoy it. Judge Mell R.

Three Star Events to Land Places for Westerners. By ALAN GOULD Associated Press Sports Editor NEW YORK, UP) -- America's track and field experts were a bit conservative earlier this year in forecasting a thin majority for the west in the makeup of the 1936 Olympic team. On the basis of the first spring tests, topped off Saturday by the Drake and Penn 'relays carnivals, it now looks like a landslide for the athletic products of the midwest, 'Southwest and far west. Conspicuous among the surprises furnished by outdoor competition so far are these three performances: 1--Brilliant decathlon triumph by Glenn Morris, Fort Collins, Colo., auto salesman who bettered the existing Olympic standard at the Kansas relays. 2--New national record of 9:10.6 for two miles by Don Lash of Indiana, bettering the outdoor mark of 3:13.2 set by Norman Bright at New York last summer. 3--A new "citizens' record" of 232.65 feet in the javelin throw by Alton Terry of Hardin-Sjini- nions college, Texas, at the Drake relays. All. three achievements strengthened Uncle Sam's chances of scoring, at least, in Olympic events which have heretofore held forth scant prospects for the U. S. A. Lasli now looms as a great running: mate for the coast star, Bright, in the 5,000 meters, which the Finns have monopolized. ' Week-end returns also produced re-assuring evidence in behalf of two prospective Olympic aces, Glenn Cunningham and Jesse Owens. At Des Moines, Cunningham stepped off 1,000 yards in the new American record time of 2:11.2. Owens breezed to a new carnival mark of 10:5 seconds for 100 meters and was satisfied to win the broad jump with a 23 foot leap. Meanwhile, the future of Eulace Peacock, Temple Negro, national champion and conqueror of Owens three times last season, is in some doubt. Peacock, who damaged a leg muscle competing in Italy last summer, aggravated the injury with a slight 'pull" at the Penn relays Friday. He will be out of action for several weeks.

Olsoa IOWA RACE FANS HEDGE BETS FOR BREVITY IN BERBY Mrs. Marvin Johnston, After 14 Winner?, Makes Her Choice Coldstream. DES MOINES, (£--The Brevity money around Des Moines started hunting a hedge today, for Mrs. Marvin Johnston, who has picked 14 Kentucky derby winners in the last 15 years, disclosed she likes Coldstream to come home first Saturday. "In feet," she said, "I like him very much, but Grand Slam may have an outside chance if the track is very muddy." Mrs. Johnston. Kentucky born. Louisville reared, and not above playing a hunch on the ponies, isn't playing a hunch on Coldstream. "I've seen him run,'' she explained. "That was a year ago. And he became my choice then. I've not weakened on him since. First he's got the breeding--and all the hunches in the world notwithstanding, a horse's blood counts most. Likes His Picture. "Then I like a horse with a long body and strong hips." She pulled a photograph from her racing files. "Look at him," she said. "He's the best thoroughbred I've seen in years and he can run in the stretch. "Brevity? His breeding is doubtful and he's a Florida horse. A Florida horse isn't so jrood at the derby. "Indian Broom? Yes. he set a record recently, but sensational time on a pasteboard track means nothing. Hollyrood can't stand the gaff at a mile and a quarter." And one by one Mrs. Johnston, whose father. Judge M. E. Peary of Louisville, once had a racing stable, dismissed the other entries. How to Do It. "How do I pick them? Well," said Mrs. Johnston, "breeding comes first, then you study their performance, their jockeys and sometimes you heave your conclusion overboard and play a hunch. "I picked Clyde van Ducsen in 1929 because I saw his picture in the window of a Louisville shop. I like Twenty Grand's name. In 1928 I dreamed Reigh Count would win, but I'd already picked him. "Not long ago I dreamed Bien Joli would win this year, but I'm · sticking with Coldstream. "Mr. Johnston, though, is putting his money on Bien Joli. He won once on another horse I dreamed would come home first and hasn't ;ptten over it." Nobody Is Sure. Burgoo King is the only derby winner that has crossed Mrs. Johnston up. "I didn't even give him a thought," she explained. "I was hot for Sickla. "Which only goes to show," she added, "that nobody can ever he sure about the ponies. That's why I only make small bets, just for the fun of it. My winner picking is just a hobby. Probably if I took it seriously I'd miss as .many as those who do. And I hope nobody takes my predictions seriously." Mr. and Mrs. Johnston are leaving 'for Louisville this week. "Do I ever change my mind at the last minute? No," said Mrs. Johnston. "You are lost if .you do. Though I have been known to hedge on a Bradley horse. It's hard to withstand Louisville's enthusiasm for Bradley horses."
