Two Years in Row Just Bit Too Much, Say Home Laddies. By EDDIE BRIETZ. Sports Roundup. DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., (JP)-Havana fans are boiling mad because los San Luis ' Carderiales came tc town two years in succession without Dizzy Dean ... Senior Adolfo Luque of the Giants, who understands the lingo, got a big kick out of telling the Cards what the boys and girls were saying, which was plenty and hot. . . Max Schmeling isn't returning the boycott . . . He signed his name 127 times for autograph hunters in Jimmy Kelly's Greenwich village joint the other night . . . Young Bob Feller must be slipping . . . Best he could do was fan one of the three batters he pitched to in New Orleans Sunday. NOTE TO PETEY-Note to Pete Sarron, N. B. A. featherweight champ: They say Henry Armstrong, Los Angeles Negro, who kayoed Mike Belloise last week, is pure murder and that you had better watch out . . . The Yanks have to spend two nights in sleepers to come here from St. Pete tc- play the Cards Tuesday . . . King Levinsky is on his way to England (we hope not to fight) . . . The Dodgers want old Jess Haines of the Cardinals for the vacant coaching job. Joe O'Rourke, Philly coach, in his prime one of the best freehanded tobacco chewers in baseball (he could spit from third to first) has sworn off. His only vice now i? smoking clay pipes presented by President Gerry Nugent . . . Bill Terry's decision to quit seems to be definite this time and it is just as well for the 'guy was on his way to more farewells than the late Mme. Schumann- Heiak . . . SOMETHING ON BALL . . . Those Cuban senoritas must have something on the ball, at that . . . One Daytona Beach writer who went to Havana with the lards, was taken care of so well by the dolls he forgot to drop by Ihe cable office and file his story . . Only trouble with the Cards' new training plant here it is three Jood country miles from town . . . Nothing new in the Dean situation here . ..

The two teams will represent the Lighthouse Bowling league, a local institution for the blind that boasts an organized league of eight five-man teams. The 10 men's averages range fronv-150 to 170. Both are entered in the "booster" class and will compete with lineups from New York, Philadelphia, Schenectady and neighboring. Jersey towns. Team leaders held their positions during Monday night's bombardment and the 3,045 total registered by the .pastime A. C. of Syracuse, was hot even threatened. Monday's minor event card featured Jimmy Smith and Mike De Bridget, New York, who connected with a sizzling 1,307 total to take the lead in the doubles DC Bridget also nabbed the nil- events top in piling up a nine- game total of 1,927. ' IOWA HAS FIVE IN ANNUAL MEET DBS MOINES, OT-- Iowa will have five teams in the annual American Bowling congress at New York: Three Des Moines teams and one each from Davenport and Clinton will appear in the blue ribbon bowling classic. Iowa teams entered and the dates they will appear: The Heck Ross Clothiers and the Yeoman Mutual teams of Des Moines, March 31. Clinton Corn Glass and Starch team, March 26. Manbeck Motors of Des Moines, April 1. The Crescent Macaroni and Cracker team of Davenport, April 13. MILE ACE HAS ONE RUN LEFT May Get Degree, Turn Pro Automatically-in Post as Track Teacher. NEW YORK, (ff)--Glenn Cunningham, undisputed ruler of American mile runners for several years, may end his reign over the board tracks Wednesday night with the Columbian mile at the Knights of Columbus gomes at Mndison Square Garden. Cunningham, winner of all but one of this winter's important miles, encounters his conqueror, Archie San Romani of Emporia (Kans.) Teachers, Italy's Luigi Beccali and his perennial rival, Gene Venzke of the New York A. C., in the feature race of the season's last and biggest indoor invitation meet. Although the Kansan has not announced his intention of quitting, he has only one more race on the winter schedule, a clash with San Romani and Indiana's Don Lash as a special feature of the Butler relays at Indianapolis Saturday. It has been pointed out, however, that he has been taking post-graduate work in physical education at New York university this year. If he gets his degree and takes up coaching or a position as physical director, he will become ineligible for amateur competition. Cunningham has won the Columbian trophy the last four years, taking two cups permanently, and it \ this race that he set his world indoor mile record of 4:08.4 in 1934. WHO'S BACK OF CHICAGO SCRAP? On Paper, Joe Foley; But Actually, There May Be Some Others. . (This Is the filth and last of a series of stories dealing with the background of the. boxing business, with special reference t o c u r r e n t heavyweight angles.) : By CHARLES DUNKLEY CHICAGO, (£)--Who is the man behind the promotion of the world heavyweight championship light between James J. Braddock and Joe Louis, set for Chicago, June 22? On paper there is only one--Joe Foley, who has been connected with sports in Chicago for more than 20 years. Actuajly, however, there may be four or five. Sheldon Clark, oil company executive and president of the Sporting Club o£ Illinois, has pledged the support of his organization as a civic measure, with financial backing if necessary. The club has a membership o£ more than.300 wealthy civic leaders. In the foreground, also, is Joseph Triner, aggressive chairman of the Illinois State Athletic association, who helped engineer bringing the fight to Chicago as an attraction for the centennial celebration, and also to enrich the state treasury in. collecting $100,000 in tax, provided the fight draws a million dollar gate. Behind the whole show is Mike Jacobs, New York boxing promot- .er, who has Louis under contract until 1940. Jacobs was associated with Foley, but in the background, in promoting the Louis-Levinsky fight in Chicago 18 months ago. Foley, licensed by the Illinois State Athletic commission to promote the Braddock-Louis fighfc, says Jacobs will be associated with him in an "advisory" capacity. Jacobs legally may have nothing whatever to do with the fight promotion. The law provides that a promoter shall be a resident of the state. Swea City Aces Back Home for Cage Event Scheduled This Week SWEA CITY--It will be homecoming night for Swea. City and North Iowa basketball stars of other seasons when the bearded "House of David" team plays the Globe-Trotters, Soup Graves' original Negro ca'gers, Thursday and Friday this,week at Swea City. · Included' in" the David lineup are Artie and Gregory Deim, and Don Peterson of Swea City;' Art Stoelding of Paullina and Swede Olson of Graettinger. The team has returned to Iowa after two months on the west coast. rj WHY CLEAN OUT YANKEE STARS? (Continued From Sport Page) ably will lose-out and be shipped back to Newark. McCarthy is depending on Gomez for a comeback. The good senor has reduced- and is really zipping the ball faster than he did in '35 and '36. Unless Wicker and Tamulis come through, Gomez will be the only lefty on the club and will have to carry the southpaw burden. The only way to break down the clubbing Yankees is for them to do it themselves. If Lazzeri stands up again and the pitching is fairly decent, the impending race may be a dull repetition of last year's runaway. Have a Drink Boys-But Don't Drop 15th Century Goblets Mrs. McKee Rites at Rock Falls; Burial Is at Nora Springs ROCK FALLS 1 -- Funeral services were held Monday afternoon for Mrs. John McKee, who died at the house Saturday morning following a lingering illness.

George Christiansen, William Brockel, Robert Nickles, Paul Hansen; Carl Hansen and E. Mickleson were pallbearers. Burial was made at the Rock Grove cemetery at Nora Springs. Maybe we are too suspicious, but too many big plane wrecks suggest that somebody is monkey- ing with something.--Davenport Time.?.
