WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 19« Colleges Optimistic About Sports Despite New Order MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE It'll Be "Laughter Limited" With Stengel, Gomez Combine ~ ' ----^--"-- _* By JACK CUDDY NEW YORK, (U.PJ--We envy the lads who will be covering the Boston Braves this year. They'll be ridrfig "Laughter Limited," guffawing constantly at the gags given off by that brand new team of wisecrackers -- S t e n g e l and Gomez. Mister, there's a combination of merry Andrews that may make the Beantown populace forget all about Abbott and Costello Burns and Allen, etc. There'll be no rationing of laughing gas in the land of Cabofs and cod. Whether Vernon "Goofy' 1 Gomez has enoughvsteam left in his portside · flipper to help Manager Casey Stengel's pennant campaign we do not know. But Gomez's shift from the Yankees to the Braves certainly will provide Stengel with a perfect foil for his dugout drolleries. * * * There should be state-wide rejoicing throughout Massachusetts at Wednesday's announcement that l^fty Gomez, the Yankees' prankster pitcher, has been teamed with the inimitable Stengel. After all. Gomez--the Kay Caballero from out California way--no«v is a. resident of Lexington. Mass. Imbued with the Lexington spirit of 1775. El Goofo boasts: "I'm a. minute-man now. I'm on the mound one minute, and under the showers the next." ' * * * During the off - season. Lefty has been working in a Massachusetts defense plant. But. it still is a military secret what defense the workers fashioned against his jests. Lefty's slants at life have teen than his heyday curves. -"--·· i»u tn_j i_iej tj When he first blew into York, back in 1930, he New rode . UU ^. L ni A.TOU, UK roae through the "big apple" with the grotesque abandon ot a sailor on horseback. This stringbean of a youth from Rodeo, Cal.. slicked back his dark hair and treated Broadway to a hodge-podge o[ fireball pitching, cheese diets night -Vspot romance and rib- ticklingj buffoncrv. * * * He once explained to his Yankee mates: ^Maybe the name 'Vemon' that my folks gave me caused me to go off on tangents, I never liked that name. And it wasn't my father's choice either. When I was born, back in 1910, my Irish mother asked my Spanish father what I should be called. My father bent over the cradle, took one look at me, and then said to my mother. 'Let's call it Quils.' Ma liked Vernou better." * * * When Lefty came up to the I Yanks from the San Franciscr club in 1930 he was fearfuilj under weight, packing only 15 pounds on a six foot one and a half inch beam. Cheese diets didn't help, so the Yanks orderec him to have his teeth yanked on and they paid the dental bill which amounted to $1,500. Afte: that Lefty assured reporters- 'Tl stick with the club now. Afte* putting $1,500 in my mouth, you can bet the Yanks won't let mv face out of sight." Gomez had a bad season in 1935. and when contract time came next spring, the late Col Jacob Ruppert sliced him from S20.000 to $7,500. R U p pe! . t re . iented a bit after Lefty told him ·You keep the salary, I'll take the cut." * * * When the late Lou Gehrie came to the eiid of his "iron man" string and was lifted from the Yankee lineup in Detroit, the Yankee dugout was mantled in grief. But El Goofo relieved the tension by remarking to Gehriff, "It took 'em 15 years to get you out of .there. They get me but in 15 minutes." One of the highlights of Lefty's career came in Cleveland in 1940 He /W as batting against Bob Feller, the speed merchant. It was getting dark. . Between pitches Lelty reached into a hip pocket and pulled out a card of matches He lit one and held it up close to his face. Umpire Bill Summers stopped the game momentarily and inquired: "What's the matter--, you see Feller out there?" "Yeah, but I want to be damned sure he can see me " plied. Gomez re- BOWilNG.

Commander Harvey Harman, the athletic director, and-Ensign .Warren Olivers, former Dartmouth ski star . . . And members of the Mid-Atlantic Greenkeepers Association recently were urged to coax golf club 9 is73 mem .°ers to do the same tiling by 24 1137 tur nmg the courses into huge gardens . . . . Chances are the golfers would find it easier than the aviation cadels. They've been delving into the soil with niblicks for a good many years . . . . But any amateur gardener can tell you that hoeing corn and digging spuds is plenty oE exercise and maybe the nnvy has the right idea in listing it as "labor engineering." A HAND FOR HANS Just after the world series, Hans Lobert of the Phils learned that one of his old West Point baseball pupils, Lt. Col. Red Reeder, was heading for Australia so he gave Red a letter to General Douglas MacArthur, who was superintendent of the military academy when Hans was coach . . . The other day Lobert got a reply from Reeder, telling how the letter had been presented by General Sutherland, brother-in-law- of Bucky Harris - . . . "For 25 minutes he (MacArthur) talked of football, baseball and you," Reeder said. "When it was time for me to- leave, he got up and stood staring out of a window. 'Red,' he said, 'you tell that old rascal Hans Lobert that at night when the pressure is on and ti's hard for me to go to sleep, I'm able to rest only by thinking of thoie days at West Point when I was superintendent and lie was our jolly baseball coach.' " ONE-MINUTE SPORTS PAGE Note on the manpower shortage- The other night in San Francisco two preliminary boys each fought twice to fill gaps on the program. Reuben Marino and Cupid Gordon each scored first-round knockouts. Then they me t and Marino won a four-round decision . . . . Trackman Enlace Peacock does such a nifty job of putting coast guardsmen through the generally dull routine of calisthenics at Manhal- an beach that his class of about 400 broke out in a' spontaneous cheer one day after a stiff 40- minutc session . . . . The committee to decide what kind of a base^" bait will be used in the majors this, season hasn't reported yet but Ed Barrow figures the clubs will pool their present supplies and have enough to carry them well into the season before they have to shift to the new one .'. . , Buffalo court cranks are so steamed up over the Niagara- Canisius basketball rivalry that they're importing Pat Kennedy and Matty Begovich from New .York to referee Sunday's game. NO IMMEDIATE GALL EXPECTED By HAROLD CLAASSEN NEW YORK, W--Uncle Sam has levied another manpower tax on the colleges b»t the athletic teams will carry on with new students and the odds and ends still around, a survey by the Associated Press Wednesday showed. Few of the coaches or athletic directors were abl- to interpret the order from Washington which stated that enlisted army reserves! j would be ordered up at the end of the first college term iftter Dec. J1| 1942. * * * At Atlaula. Ga., however. Maj. Gen. William Bryden of the fourth service command said the regulation didn't mean "the reservists will finish the ierm one day and step into a uniform the next. They will become 'available' at the completion of a semester or term and will be called later by name from Washineton." * * * That interpretation was a pleasant one for basketball coaches Doug Mills of Illinois, Phog Allen of Kansas, and Howard Cann 01 New York university. The three coaches have top- ranking teams and a blanket 01 immediate induction or reservists would take three starters from both Illinois and NYU and foui from Kansas. * * * Other sports likewise were hit hut it is expected that the ruling- will be felt most in basketball, now at the midway point in its s e a s o n . However, Columbia listed 13 trackmen among its reservists and New York university reported that Frank Dixon, sensational freshman runner would be lost. * * * Complexion of next fall's football outfits will be changed completely, five oE Ohio Siate's best gridders being on the army list in addition to the usual graduation losses. A majority of the commenting coaches endorsed the statement of Wallace Butts, whose Georgia eleven won the 1943 Rose Bowl game: "Right now I'm too busy figuring out who is going and who isn'l but the army is one outfit we're not trying to compete with. Anytime they want any of our boys they can have them." The present call effects only acmy reservists and also excuses those in advanced ROTC work and those studying medicine, dentistry and engineering. It does not apply to army air corps reserves.

Wednesday night the boys will resume Play at Rockwell. The St. Joseph's sextet vainlv :ned to match the boys' record" JUt went down to defeat at the hands of Plymouth, 33-26. The St Joe team held at 20-19 lead at the ntermission. but failed to score a single point in the third quarter to all behind and never catch up Paulson paced St. Joe with 16 Joints, while Godfrey scored all btit seven of the Plymouth markers with 26 points. * ¥ * The Swaledale eirls look Meservey's measure. 29-20. The game was even for the first half, with Sn-aledale holding only one and three-point leads at the end of the first quarter and the half respectively. Bat the sextet started rolling in the second half to forre ahead and stay there. Jindrich for Swaledale and 31.

Hagen followed Medians in the Joice scoring parade with 9 point-: while Eartusck had 13 for Manly. The Joice reserves won over the Manly yearlings, 21-16. After competing in the Threatening t h a t f a r m e r s around Ledges state park ncai Boone will take the law into then own hands if the legislature doesn't do something to relieve the surplus deer crop, Rep. A. C Greene of Denison advocates swift action. Greene would like to give the state conservation commission permission to lure the herd into feed areas and shoot the deer to cut down their number. There is no law permitting the commission to exterminate such animals legally. . * . * * . The commission had a plan similar to that in mind a year or so ago, but former Gov. George Wilson prohibited it from goiug through with the idea. * * * Greene, chairman of the fish and game committee of the house, said he thought the deer problem was one of the major matters confronting his committee, but added that the big question was how to get rid of the animals. Greene feels it would, be better for the legislature to solve the problem than to wait for farmers to file claims for crop damage. He feels sure some method of killing off the deer will be adopted, but seems to be in a quandary as to exactly what can be done. He doesn't like the idea of moving them, says it costs too much. Greene would welcome a plan from anyone with a practical idea about how to kill the deer. * * * Well. \ve were never very much in Favor of killinc animals, so we'd suggest Mr. Greene and his committee move the animals and send the hullels to the boys on Guadalcanal. They could be put to a far greater use there. * * * Sandlot baseball will get its official opening May 2 when 60,000 teams will open throughout the country at 3 p. m. (CWT). Each ;ame will be featured by a celebrity tossing out the first ball. For the ninth consecutive year the championship will be decided it Wichita, Kan., Aug. 12 to 25. Year by year the semi-pro leagues lave been growing under the guiding hand of Commissioner joorge Sisler, now a Brooklyn Dodger scout. Before he left "to join the Brooks, Sisler said he elt the gas rationing would help nstcad of hinder the sandlot .rend, giving people baseball at lome. iCIark Shaughncssy's signing at Pittsburgh is the handwriting on the wall t h a t the Panthers soon will be up among the gridiron powerhouses once again, after the de-emphasis program that went into effect when Jock Sutherland left for the Brooklyn Dodgers. * * * Shaughnessy says he's not going to nuke any drastic chance m Pitt's .athletic setup or policy, but it can be pretty certain he isn t takin? the job to direct any de-emphasized f o o t b a l l team at a reported $20,000 a year. * * * Although he says this figure is entirely out of proportion," he isn't throwing up a 10-year contract at the University of Maryland at 510,000 per for a hazy price and indefinite number of years running with the Panthers. H might even be the prelude to the Pennsylvania school's bid for membership in the Big Ten conference, replacing Chicago's too-inactive Maroons. Gomez Seeks Fountain of Youth at Boston's Big Field GOOFY POSITIVE HE STILL HAS IT LEXINGTON. Mass., #)--Now that he has recovered from the shock of being cast adrift by the fabulous New York Yankees, Vernon (Lefty) Gomez has high hopes that he, like many another aginj pitcher before him, will find the "fountain of youth" that is supposed to be located within the spacious boundaries of Braves field. Gomez, now 32. became involved in a major league deal for (he first time in his 12 year career Tuesday when the Yankees sold him to the Boston Braves after all of the other American league clubs had waived on him. * * if "I was surprised, ot course," the colorful southpaw said. "But I am convinced I still have enough stuff to be a winning pitcher and I'm looking forward to work in the Braves' big park. Those long fou lines sound very attractive. Fo. the last couple of seasons the 301 and 295-foot left and right fields in the Yankee stadium seemed much too short to me." Gomez appears to have ample 'grounds on which to base his hopes for a successful term with the Braves. He recalls the happy experiences one of his old teammates,- Deacon Danny MacFayden enjoyed with the Braves after the Yankees cut him adrift when ho reached the 30 year old stage back in 1935. * * * The supposedly washed-up MacFayden, after winning only four eames during his last year as a Yankee ^ihthander. turned in 17 victories during his first season as a Brave and then collected 14 more in each of the next two seasons. * * * Among the other recent pitchers to drink from this "fountain of youth" were the then 30-year- oldsters, Milkman Jim Turner and Lou Fette. who, during their freshman seasons, were 20-game winners for the Braves. Bob Smith, the reconverted infielder. also was regarded as hopeless when, at the age of 36, he came to the Braves from the Cincinnati Reds but he managed to stay with them until he was almost 40 pitching effectively most of tht time. Drake Team Faces I. S. C. in Friday Tilt DES MOINES--Drake's Bulldogs, long on speed and confidence despite two successive losses, hope to alleviate a growing pain against Iowa State at the Drake fieldhouse Friday night. That growing pain has been aggravated through two years that saw Iowa State take four straight victories from the Bulldogs. * * * Then tn the second same for Drake this season, the Cyclones seared themselves to the scoring 'of Center Rollin Kucbler and made away with a 46 to 34 triumph. It was a rouch ball Kamc and left the Drake kids unconvinced. * * * Since then, the Drakes have Mine on to a 5-3 record with the latter two losses coming at the hands of two Missouri Valley powers, Creighton, 40 to 31, nnd Oklahoma A M. 34 to 22. But the youthful lost little prestige in cither battle. Even scoring has featured the Drake attack, with Center Gerry Dirksen hitting 63, Forward Gene Ollrich 60 and Guard Bill Evans 48. * * * It has been the rebounding and defensive scrap of Evans that has really sparked the Drakes so far, thouch he still hasn't struck a continued scor- inc streak. Warren Scott and Ollrich remain at the foriv.irds. Dirksen is at center and Evans and Lyle Naylor, who played fine defensive ball asrainst Crcichton, arc at the guards * * * Two reserves, Forward Joe Sams and Center Bob Zirbcl, both sophomores, also "looked good against the Jays.

Colltie o£ P«Uic 17; Fiesna stale SS, Tom Chapman Leads Big 10 With 94 Points in 6 Games By TOMMY DEVINE CHICAGO, U.R--Tom Chapman of Iowa Wednesday took the Big Ten individual basketball scoring leadership, but the Hawkeye star's time at the top appears limited. Chapman garnered 34 points in two losing games against Indiana to boost his seasonal total to 04 points and give him the league lead by a narrow margin over Andy Phillip of Illinois, who was idle. Phillip is second with 92 points. The "catch" to Chapman's leadership is the fact he has played six league games as compared with four lor Phillip. * * * .Chapman- finished third in the individual scoring race last season, behind Johnny Kolz of Wisconsin and Otto Graham of Northwestern, with 188 points in 15 contests. That finish equaled the highest ranking for an Iowa player in the scoring table in 19 seasons. * * W In 1923, Jack Funk of Iowa led Ihe Big Ten scorers with 150 points, the only Hawkeye performer ever to take the conference point-making crown. Iowa didn't have a eager to threaten the scoring leaders seriously again until Ben Stephens finished third back of Jimmy Hull of Ohio State and Pick Dehner of Illinois in 1939. Then Chapman equaled his rating record last year. While Chapman isn't likely to sfay in front of the scoring parade his point-making average this season is higher than that compiled a season ago. In 1942 his per game average was 12»/ points as compared with a present average of 15 2/3 points. Phillip holds to the best points- per-game average with 23 and has scored the most field goals, 40 * * * Kalph Hamilton, Indiana forward, who ran wild in (he opening game of the series with Iowa to bag 31 points and then came back with 21 points in the finale jumped from ninth to third place in the standing. He now has a total of 87 points in five contests. * * * Ben Trickey of Iowa is fourth with 73 points and Allen Menke of Purdue fifth with 65 points. Both have played five games. Kotz and Graham, the one-two scorers in the league in 1942, fail to rate among the top 10 currently. Kotz was seventh a week ago, but dropped out of the leader list when inactive. He has 41 points in four contests. Graham has tallied 48 points in a like number of games. The 10 lending scorers follow: Player and Team Games FC FT TP Chapman. lou'a 6 3S '" rililljp.

Porter, secretary of the National High School federation, reported Wednesday. He said the figure was based on surveys in many states. Illustrative, he said, is the case of the Illinois prep cage tourney, which begins late in February with 850 teams competing against 887 of a year ago. Most other states are finding the same widespread interest in the continuation of the cage sport, he reported, although there have been some mileage- saving modifications in the tournament program. * ¥ V With the exception of Idaho, Montana, Nevada and a few in New England, all states previously holding state tournaments will do so again this year, Porter said. * * * Porter declared that the ruling permitting coaches and athletic directors to secure B gasoline rations was a big factor in allowing a relatively unimpaired basketball program, with players traveling in the coaches' and directors' cars. * * * Reporting on the availability of equipment. Porter said the customary durable molded type of basketball still was available in quantifies sufficient to assure the sport the rest of this season and possibly all of next year. Only limited supplies .of fan- shaped backboards arc available but many schools are constructing- their own in manual training classrooms. * ··{· * Porter said 14 states reported they would use fan-shaped backboards in the slate tournament fi- nnls nnd 24 states reported such boards would be used in preliminary tournaments where individual managers were able (o install them.
