BROWN BUZZSAW RETAINS WELTER GROWN IN 12TH Davey Day Is Downed by Technical Kayo After Tough Battle By HARRY FERGUSON United Press Sports Editor NEW YORK, (U.PJ--Henry Armstrong, the little brosvn buzz-saw, still is welterweight champion of the world, but when they stick his left hand under the x-ray Saturday it may develop that it cost him $40,000 to beat Davey Day into a spongy mess in defense of his title. The indestructible, invincible Armstrong ran into a tartar at Madison Square Garden Friday night, and although lie won on a technical knockout in the twelfth round he got some souvenirs from Davey he is likely to carry for a couple of months. He got a gash over his left eye that required four stitches to close, and, more important, he injured his left hand in the fifth round and it may turn out to be a fracture. If so, Armstrong will have to pass up a projected bout with Ernie Roderick in London--a fight he figured would earn him 340,000. "That's All" Marks End Henry, the hammer, shooting for his 540,000 in London, threw 'em from all points of the compass Friday night and some of "em were so far south of the belt line that he lost two rounds because of foul blows.- Except for those . x fwo rounds, he led all the way. swarming on top of his man, slamming home lefts and rights to the head, and, finally, dropping Day with a right to the ribs that moved only about 14 inches. Davey went to his knees on the canvas, his head i rolled crazily and Referee Billy i Cavanaugh looked up into Arm- ' \ strong's blood-smeared face and said, "that's all." It happened after two minutes and 49 seconds of the twelfth round and it marked the sixth time in a little more than four months that Henry the hammer has successfully defended his welterweight championship. He also holds the lightweight title, but that was not at stake Friday night because Daves' came in at 136--a pound over the lightweight limit. Crammed With Courage Soy this for both the brown man and the white man--their hearts were crammed with courage and both of them kept whaling away when nerves and muscle and brain must have been crying at them to quit. Armstrong, with pain shooting all the way up to his elbow, kept throwing his left against Day's head.

Yes a green-eyed, long- tailed lizard of about 6 months of age. Just as he was about to stroke a 25 foot putt on the sixth hole this lizard scooted from the trap, ran up the outside of Bobby's pants leg, danced merrily for a mad second on his shirt, and hopped off ... Bobby then sank the putt for his first birdie of the day . . . "If I can find that lizard," Jones said after his round, "I promise him room and board for life, with an occasional lizard delicacy thrown in." * if.

She was the Manila women's champion at the time and fired at par 72 at Gene . . . He won the match by one stroke . . . Many of the ranking golfers are wondering when (lie open championship, the No. 1 test of golf in * the world, will be played on a No. I 1 course , . . The boys don't criticize the courses chosen by the United States Golf association, but say they never are in shape .. . And no matter how good a golt course is, unless it is in first class condition, it's second rate . . . They say that asking them to play orer a course in bad condition is just like asking Willie Hoppe to try and win the billiard championship over a table spotted with eornbread crumbs, bits of chalk and Mr. Edward's green derby. Pro Uniforms Suggested Freddie Corcoran, tournament director of the Professional Golfers' association, and one of the smoothest, smartest showmen in the sports world, has come up with the idea of dressing the pros in regulation golfing outfits . . . Thinks it would add color to the game and give a lift to the players' games eoran says, "After all," Cor- '·football, baseball, . Thinks every have a colorful track, tennis, and even women's lacrosse teams have standard outfits. Why not golfers?"

Lillard, a 26 year old righthand- er, has been pitching well in short gaps in Grapefruit competition But Friday he served notice on Manager Gabby Hartnett he was ready to "go" in the big time. A moundsman only the pasi two years. Lillard yielded the Chicago While Sox four singles a Yuma, Ariz., Friday, blankec them 2 to 0, issued no passes anc allowed none to reach first after the fifth inning. He was the first Cub hurler to go a full game. Lillard was understudying Third Baseman Stanley Hack with thi defeated his Hoosier running mate, Don Lash, in a special two mile event and set a new meet record at the annual hill relays Friday night. Deckard negotiated the distance in 9:33, 10 seconds below the old mark. Lash was a poor third in the event which was named "the Don Lash two mile race" in his honor. Dixie Garner of Washington State finished second. Glenn Cunnningham, the Kansas flyer, won the mile event named for him by setting an easy pace and keeping it.

Event The pistol and rifle teams of the Cerro Gordo County Rifle club jre leading at the halfway mark of the annual postal meet of the National Hide association, a checkup revealed Saturday. The meet consists of a series of six matches and results of each match are sent into national headquarters.

Rowing on the surrey side, the inside of the "S" shaped course, Cambridge drew away to a lead at the start and was never headed. It was leading by three quarters of a length at me ~.i mile stage, and it drew steadily ahead to win by four lengths. Was Unexpected Tiie victory was completely unexpected. Though the betting was only two to one on Oxford, experts had conceded the light Cambridge crew no chance against Oxford. Cambridge was aided by the only American in the race--Hugh Tabor, No. 5, formerly of Tabor academy, winner of the 1938 sculling championship on the Cam river and regarded as the best oarsman in either crew. Without Regular Stroke Oxford rowed without its regular stroke, who broke down in training and was replaced by J. R. Bingham, the reserve stroke. The official time was 19 minutes, 3 seconds. The record is 18:3, set by Cambridge in 1934. Oxford had won the race in 193B and 1937 after 13 straight defeats.

BALLYHOOED BOY NOT TO HIT TIME THIS YEAR Given Another Period in Minor Leagues to Develop Hurling By H. G. SALSINGER LAKELAND, Fla., (U.PJ--Freddie Hutchinson lias pitched against ooth major and minor league teams in the last two weeks and from what he's shown he'll probably need at least another year in the minor leagues before he can establish himself in the majors. Ilutcliinson had two strikes on him before he ever put on a major league uniform. He was the subject of one of the heaviest hally- lioos the ivest coast ever enraged in. He was on the spot. Hailed as a second Mathewson, the 19 year old boy from Seattle is anything but a Mathewson. If he is like any other pitcher of the past, his prototype is Sam Jones, the melancholy right hander who used to make good hitters miss, not because he had so much stuff on the ball, but because he pitched it where the hitters least liked to see it pitched. Didn't Have iNIuch Jones didn't have much stuff. His fast ball wasn't as fast as Hutchinson's, at least not in Jones' late years when he was known as one of the most cunning pitchers in the game. He had remarkable control and a wide knowledge of batting weaknesses. If Hutchinson succeeds in the major leagues, it wilt be for the same reason that Jones did. When lie controls his delivery, batters find it difficult to hit any pitch solidly because he keeps them off balance by a constant change ot pace and spot pitching. He has poise and lie's smart. He lias an analytical mind and a keen memory. Scouts who watched him in the Pacific Coast league last year reported that he didn't have a fast ball. The scouts were wrong. His fast ball is faster than the aver, age. His curve isn't much. His | change of pace is effective. Curve Will Improve His fast ball probaoiy will grow faster and he will improve his curve. Experience and practice will do that for him. After all, big Hutch has been around only one year and has a long way to go. He needs control more than the average pitcher and his control, faulty in stretches down here, will improve as he moves ahead. He has no burning fast ball for an explosive curve to get him by today and while his fast ball is good it isn't in the class of quite Cagers Finish Undefeated The Swaledale junior high basketball team finished a 13 game schedule this year without a defeat.

Hutchinson's main handicap has been superfluous praise. He was made into a giant among pitchers before he ever saw a major league team in action. The wave of advance publicity put an immense burden upon him. There is no doubt that he has been over-pressing down here, trying to make good on the claims from the west coast. He will have to be brought along slowly and gradually. If he is exposed to any extensive battering, his contidence is likely to be wrecked for some time to come.

They sagged down around his knees in the sixth round but Bob kept throwing punches. He was the least embarrassed person in the stadium as Referee Phil Collins stopped the light twice and nervously pinned them up. In another minute they were down again. Pastor reached out and hit Strickland with the right to the jaw as Collins held up the trunks. He finally discarded them between rounds and stood calmly in his cornel- until a new pair was furnished. Then he walked out and resumed pounding out a one- sided 10-round decision, retaining with ease his rating as the world No. 2 heavyweight contender.

UCLA CONSIDERS IOWA COACHES Williams of Drake, Harrison of SUI Are on Long List DKS MOINES, W)--Two Iowa coaches--Bill Williams of Drake and Lawrence "Pops" Harrison at University of Iowa--are those under consideration for the basketball coaching position at the University of California at Los Angeles. At least GO coaches are on the list which the university athletic committee will study to find a successor to Caddy Works, resigned. The committee hasn't made a thorough survey of the applicants yet, and an appointment isn't expected until mid-April, Los Angeles sources said. Williams, who came to Drake in 1932, has developed three championship teams in a revival of. the Bulldogs' basketball prestige. He has demonstrated the faculty of taking somewhat crude material and developing smooth-performing teams that have ranked with the best in the Missouri valley.
