MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, M A Y 5 M 1 9 3 6 NINE TROJANS HAMMER WARTBURG FORM WIN Out of the Pressbox By AI Mitchell Fightiri Man O NE OF the ring marvels of the age will be trotted out again the night of May 8 when Tony Canzoneri steps out of his corner meet Jimmy McLamin. to GAZETTE RTS Last Winter's Trades Fail to Blossom in Spring Play I can remember reading four times in the last eight years that Tony Canzoneri was washed up. Smart fight managers finally ticketed him for certain oblivion in February last year when he lost a 10- round decision in Detroit to Chuck Woods, an earnest young Michigan mitt slinger. * * * Yet here he is again, nearly a year and a half after that setback, ready to walk out and match punches with a fellow who has probably the most powerful wallop, for his weight, in the business. Furthermore, since losing that nod to Woods, Canzoneri, 30 years old, has been battling an average of once every six weeks 'A -without being defeated. Twice in the last year he has defended his championship against the men "named "logical contenders," Lou Ambers and Al Roth, and is getting ready to defend it against Ambers again this summer. * # * In meeting McLarnin, Tony is giving- away 10 pounds in weight, as Jim probably will weight 146. r. t * The name of the little New Orleans Italian, who started fighting away back there in 1925 when Calvin Coolidge was president, has to be placed in the books alongside that of Joe Cans and Benny Leonard. He is the most active champion the ring has seen in a decade, except possibly Freddie Miller, the featherweight king. * * * · Six yars ago Canzoneri knocked out Al Singer in a round to win the lightweight title. Three years a"o Tony lost the title to Barney Ross. His failure to beat Ross in a return bout did not stop him. He kept right on fighting the Klicks, Locatellis and Dublinskys as fast as they came along and making them like it, too. ACES FLOP WHEN CASTOFFS SCRAP TO STARS' SPOTS Parmelee Handcuffs Giants as Terry Makes Wisecrack;" Simmons Hits .264. By SCOTTY KESTON Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK, UP)--Baseball being an unpredictable game and ball players a daffy lot, the trades and purchases made eo hopefully' last winter look strangely .different around the fourth of May. · Since misfortune starts and ends in Flatbush, you might first consid- ed the case of the Brooklyn Dodgers. They traded Al Lopez, Ray Benge, Al Cuccinello, and Bob Reis to the Boston Bees for Ed Brandt American Boxscores Monday's Games CLEVELAIS'1)'--6 AB H I'O A K'bockcr us 5 1 1 3 Gleesun rf 4 1 1 0 Hale 3b 5 1 4 Z Avtrlli c f 3 3 1 0 Gnlntzcr cf 1 8 0 0 0 Irusky Ib Vosmlk If HlIEtiro 2b 11 2 3 3 Sullivan c 6 3 7 2 I, Brown p 3 1 0 3 Totals 40 13 2?12 WASHINGTON--3 AB H I'O A Hill I f 5 3 0 0 Lewis 3b IS 3 3 1 Mj'cr 2b 3 0 4 6 Travis » 4 1 1 IS Reynolds rf 3 3 0 0 Powell cf 3 0 4 Kuhel Ib 4 2 12 0 UoHnn c 4 0 3 1 Applfton p 3 0 0 2 zEstalcIlu 1 1 0 0 Totals 35 10 27 15 and Randy Moore.

Cleveland Wo 001 212--0 Waililngton 010 000 003--3 Krror, Travis; runs butted In, Bulton, Av- crlll, Sullivan 2, Brown, Hughes 2, Hill, Two years ago when Ross retired s 3 lightweight champion because of inability to make the weight, Tony stepped back into office. The New York boxing commission decided the title should go to the winner of the Canzoneri-Ambers bout last year. Ambers had been coming along swiftly, and was regarded as almost a einch against the apparently fading Tony. * « * But Canzoneri crossed up the sharpshooters once more by tying Ambers into bow knots. And since beating Ambers he has won from Frankie Klick twice, Bobby Pacbo, Joe Ghnouly and Al Roth. During the last seven weeks, keeping m condition by fighting at the smaller New York fight clubs, Tony has knocked out Billy Hogan, Toots Barbara, Brescia Garcia and Steve Halaiko. * * * McLarnin has been showing much of his old form in workouts. The Irishman is getting along in years, too. He will be 30 next December, but he doesn't look upon the Canzoneri engagement as "the Kid's last fight." Another' battle with Ross, to whom he lost the welterweight title last May, is uppermost in his mind. McLarnin wants vindication. He points out that he has boxed 45 rounds with the Chicago champion without taking a decisive beating and he feels he can repeat four games and lost none, Al Lopez was playing his usual good game back of the bat even if he was hitting only .233, Cuccinello was hitting .293, and Reis, .300. Brandt Loses All. While in Brooklyn, to be brief, Brandt had lost every game he pitched and Moore was disconsolate with a broken leg. Perhaps the most important trade of the of season was between the Cards and the Giants, Roy Parmelee going to the Cards and Burgess Whitehead coming over to the Giants. Then Bill Terry, manager of the Giants, told Frankie Frisch, the Cards' manager during the course of a little light banter that Parmelee would not finish a ball game for Mr. Friscfi. Whereupon, Frisch started Parmelee in the first game of the season against the Giants and he finished 17 innings heating the Giants, 2 to 1..Whitehead has done little for , , . , Lewis; two base hits.

Iowa State, college's 5 foot, 7 inch shotputter, who tips the scales at 160 pounds, established a new school record for his specialty last week. The midget weight man heaved the 16 pound ball 43 feet, 9% inches, to displace a record set in 1934 by Paul Berger and also exceed the indoor mark set by Lawrence CosUgan of Buffalo Center last winter. Waite was the Giants. Thevenow Saves Games. The purchase of Tommy Theve- now by the Reds from the Pirates did not rate much more than a half a stick of type in last year's papers. But Tommy was put into a couple of ball games in desperation and each time,he came up with a winning hit. Now Thevenow plays second base for the Reds. In an American league trade the Tigers bought Al Simmons for $75,000. Simmons, at this writing, is hitting .264. Joe Cronin made a deal with his old club the Senators whereby the Red Sox would get Heinie, Manush for Roy Johnson and Carl Reynolds. Manush, at present, is hitting .284; Johnson, who went subsequently to New York in another deal, .306; and Carl Reynolds. .333. Other Deals Better. But other deals made by Cronin, Yawkey Collins and company, turned out somewhat better.

Not that this proves anything, since they haven't started paying off on how they stand on May 4, but the picture has changed somewrr.t and makes the fat contentions of some of the baseball owners look pretty thin. _^____ EASY COME . . .

WASHINGTON, UP--The Cleveand Indians baseball players, who ave been solemnly warned not to jss their wives, sweethearts or hildren, figured Tuesday that the ack of inspirational osculation vould not harm their prowess on lie diamond. They hope to go on yinning games. The ban was laid down m Boston riday when Outfielder Bruce Campbell was stricken for the sec- nd time with spinal meningitis. iVhen the team arrived here for the urrent series with the Washington Snators local health authorities recommended the same precautions. No More Kissing. "It is very possible," said Dr. James G. Cummings, chief of the Bureau of Preventable disease, "that there might be germ carriers on his team. I strongly advise that they do not go in for kissing. Jubilant over his teams' two straight victories over the Senators, Manager Steve O'Neil said that even :he absence of inspirational kisses could not stop his athletes. "Base hits and good pitching win ball games," he said, "not kisses."

The Giants managed to collect eight hits off Elbert Stine, 23 year old rookie but it was the old story of failing to hit with a run in sight. Stine did not issue a single pass. Rain played havoc with the schedule and only one other National league and one American league game were played. Ray Benge, the leading pitcher of the National league, registered his fourth straight win as the Boston Bees defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 7 to 6 to halt the latter's winning streak at six games. The Cleveland Indians took their second straight victory from the Senators 6 to 3. Double Play Stops Cards. Although Benge was credited with the victory, he was retired m the Cardinal half of the seventh after he had walked two and Leo Durocher had singled to fill the bags.

As the Reds battled on the bal field, there was turmoil behind tin' scenes.
