SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLER-TON NEW YORK, (ff)--The business of covering the New York baseball "beat" starts about 2 p. m. in Eddie Brannick's office and usually winds up several hours later four blocks down 42nd street in the hotel where the writers are rehearsing the show for their din- ner'next month . . . The scribes drift into the Giants' headquarters, make themselves comfortable, toss out routine queries whether there's any news and then discuss anything from baseball to Bizerte . . . In ordinary years there'd be a daily announcement that Joe Sorearm had signed his contract and promised to win 20 games, but this season the Giants is the only club that has mailed out contracts, because of uncertainties about salary regulations . . . They haven't reported any replies, but Brannick doesn't think it's funny when someone asks i£ the Giants is the only club with a holdout problem. * * * Occasionally someone has an idea and · splines a question about the ball dab. and if the discussions aren't too noisy be can hear the answer . . . The two phones on Branntck's desk 6u»i aC intervals and between calls someone uses one to call Brooklyn to see if the Dodgers have any news. They usually don't, reserving their nest tidbits for Branch Rickey's weekly press conferences . . A railroad man who has dropped In for a social call explains that ball clubs should be able to gtt berths for all hands if they buy their tickets far enough in advance. * * * Eventually someone asks "Going across the street?" and the proup departs for the Yankee offices . . . The chairs aren't padded in the square office where drum-beater Jack Slocum holds forth and two big leather settees are beginning to show their age . . j Slocum gives out routine an- 1 nouncements, such as Wednes! day's .news that the batterymcn ' will begin training before the rest i of the squad, but if there's any important information. President Ed Barrow does the thinking for [the club . . . Eventually the crowd winds up in Barrow's sanctum anyway while Ed makes pungent replies to questions . . . * * ¥ Andy Coakley, the veteran Columbia c o a c h , is visiting around and slops (o air some views on training In the north . . . He's been doing it long enough that he ought to know something on the subject . . . ; Andy is opposed to heavy gym j work but be favors running; "or anything, for the legs" and suggests that swinging light Indian*' clubs Is a help to pitchers . . . j "I don't know just how sood that is," ne admits, "but t did it one winter and the nest spring I had a fast ball I never 1 had before." * * * j Eventually this confab breaks up, loo. as the scribes head for their offices to write what news they've collected It takes a lot of time for what yon get . . . But, after all, what's time when there's no news anway? Women's League M. C. T. A. CO. 0 1703 316 !93 Hutchin5on's 3 . £033 2238 Hljh SinKlc--V. To\vlc. 17C: B. Jones 176 High Series--B. Jones 460.

Tent* Awning .... 17 Sal Bartolo in Lightweight Picture Now By JACK. CUDDY NEW YORK, (U.PJ~Sal Bartolo of Boston came steaming into New York Thursday with a mammoth chip on his shoulder, squired by Manager Lou Schiro, who has developed a Wood pressure of 154. Despite the chip and the pressure, no one in Manhattan would have given either a tumble wore it not for the fact that featherweights now seem to be the big-money boys in boxing. · Perhaps Bartolo and Pilot Schiro are striking while the iron is hot--while 126-pounders have taken command of: the ring--after being forgotten men of pugilism for six long years. Anyway Bartolo, a dark-haired Boston Italian, claims that he can lick any featherweight in the world--and probably any lightweight. * * * Bartolo blew into New York for the' sole purpose of lookine down his somewhat battered nose at Friday night's 10-round battle at ^ladlson Square Garden between WllUe Pep of Hartford, Conn., who is recoe- nlzed in New York as feather. weUht champion, and AHle^ Stolz of Newark, N. J., who craves recognition as the No. 1 lightweight contender. Naturally this brawl is a non-title affair, since Stolz will scale about 133 pounds and Pep about 129. * * * Bartolo and Pilot Schiro are not interested in those weight figures, but they drool when Mike Jacobs' drum beaters mention Friday night's probable gate-$60,000, which is big money in any war time ring. A 3-A guy who is trying to support a wife, seven brothers, two sisters and a recently widowed mother, Bartolo is out after; the big dough and he can't understand the apparent campaign to ostracize him.,He has 14 straight victories. Bartolo claims that Chalky Wright, f o r m e r featherweight king, "ran out" on la£ Friday's scheduled meeting in Boston. Wright's withdrawal, 48 hours before ring time, caused the substitution of a good Brooklyn lightweight, Carmine -Fatta. Bartolo was so incensed at Wright that he knocked out the heavier Fatta in the second round. * * * Bartolo, stormy petrel ol the featherweight d i v i s i o n , is thrusting his nose into an interesting mess. Willie Pep is recocnized as champion in New York state by virtue of his victory over Wri«bt. But the Na- lional Boxing- association recognizes as champ. Jackie Cal- Inra of Montreal, because of his recent victory over Pittsburgh Jackie Wilson at Providence, R t, * * * As Bartolo tries to wangle either Pep or Callura into the ring for a title scrap, he discovers that (1) Callura is contracted to give Pittsburgh Wilson a return bout, but Callura's manager, Leo Bradley, is doing his best to evade such a meeting, and (2) Pep is angling for a bout with Callura to decide the disputed title. Meanwhile, Bartolo, Boston's biggest boxing drawing card, is marking time while waiting for a |»reak in New York's Madison Square Garden. And he is n\vait- ing 'bids from. Boston's wan-in" promoters, Rip Valenti of the Boston arena and Jack O'Brien o£ Mechanics' building, both of whom are trying to arrange a match between Bartolo and Cleo Shans Los Angeles featherweight. ' "Bartolo will fight Shans for the Boston promoter who offers the best terms, but that isn't what we want," Shjro said. "Sal wants to get Chalky Wright in the ring and belt his brains out for taking that runout powder. Then lie wants Pep or Callura. He can lick both on (ho same night. We'll put up a $25.000 side bet against either so-called champ if he'll climb into the ring with little Sal."
