MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 1933 GAZETTE Ray Blades Doesn' t Stew Over Losing Cards' Post Plans to Run His Club Without Help From Front Office By GEOBGE KIRKSEY United Press Staff Correspondent ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., (U,R)-Managing the St. Louis Cardinals always has been considered slow suicide. You can win the pennant and still lose your pol. Ask Rogers Hornsby, Gabby Street, Bill McKechnie and Frankie Frisch. But being boss of the Cardinals holds no terrors for Ray Blades, who has spent 20 of his 42 years working for Sam Breadon and Branch Rickey as a player, coach and minor league manager. * ? *'t i Blades' predecessor was Friseh, : who, according to the grapevine stories, lost his job because he clashed with Rickey on how to run the team. 1C that wasn't the big reason, it was at least one o£ the contributing causes. "That's a lot of applesauce about Mr. Rickey going to run the Cards from the front office," said Blades Tuesday. "I wouldn't be a manager In name only. I'll have all the say on the field as I always have had. (f * "In the six years that I've managed Columbus and Rochester I never had Mr. Hickey tell me what to do. He's made suggestions and told me his opinions about ball players, I've listened to them but I've always made my own decisions. I might add that I've nearly always found Mr. Rickey right when he told me anything." Having been out of touch with the National league since 1932, Blades said he expected to seek a lot of advice. "I'm only too willing to listen to to anybody who has a suggestion to make, and that includes my coaches, Buzz Wares and Mike Gonzales. * * o "I would be a poor cliutnn if I didn't consult my superiors for advice but I'll make the decisions and take the responsibility." Blades was an outfielder with the Cards in his playing days from 1922 through 1932 except for one year, 1929, at Rochester. He managed Columbus three years, winning the pennant and little world series in 1933 and 1934. He moved to Rochester in 1936 and ran second that year, fifth in 1937 and third last year. His home is McLeansboro, III. Seventeen of the players on the Cards' squad have played under him in the minors.

Billy, Sam Lose in Final Reckoning at Augusta Contests By HENRY McLEMOKE lifted Press Staff Correspondent AUGUSTA, e the early Ga., (U.R)--It may birds that get the P. A. tastes mighty choice in a pipe too PRINCE ALBERT THE NATIONAL JOY SMOKE ovms and it is certainly the early nishers in a golf tournament who et the squirms. 1 can't swear to the bird and orm business because I am nol £ a feather with the birds whu et up early in the morning. But can swear to the squirming, umping, fidgeting, and all-around uttering of the plaj'ers who come early with good scores while 'ailing for the rest of the field to nis,h. Will their scores be beaten? Vill tiiey be tied? Will the rize money ulmost in theiv hands 2 taken away? ROUNDED SKY WRITER Billy Burke was the first man vith a real chance to win to com- iete his 72 holes in the Masters' ournament. He posted a sub-par 82 and then began to get a first lass case of jitters. All his manj ears of campaigning had no' teeled his nerves to withstand the irdtal of waiting. He tried sittin; ilone in the locker room for ; vhile, away from reports of hov Snead and Little and Guldahl ind Nelson were doing. The soli- ude and the lack of information finally got him and, smoking om igar after another, he started ou on the course to find Snead an valk in his gallery. When he heart hat Snead needed only par on tb jack nine to beat him he increase! his furious black cigar smokini intil lie resembled a groundec iky writer. As soon as Sam Snead came h with a 280 and Burke knew tha ic was beaten by two strokes h finned and said, "Oh well second or third is pretty good for an old nan," and dropped the burden of the worry on Snead. Snead reacted differently. The fact that Snead knew his score was low unless Guldahl came in to beat him seemed to transfix him to the spot where he had first heard it. Snead's final score wn.s a record for the tournament at the time it was posted. But neither this fact nor the fact that to win Guldahl would have to perform near miracles to beat him appeared to i comfort him. He undoubtedly remembered the National open at Detroit two years ago when, in with a record score, he suffered quietly under an oak tree while Guldahl cume in to beat him. SAM IN AGONY ROW Snead agonized for two hours before history repeated itself and the former automobile salesman had again robbed the former soda jerker of a great victory. Tommy Armour swears that tournament golf is the most punishing of all sports on a man's nerves. "No prisoner awaiting the verdict of a jury is more helpless than a golfer in medal play when lie is finished and his score is on the board," he says. "And it is n two-way punishment, too, because the poor cuss out there on the course, knowing what he has to do to win, walks up to putts like a man going the last mile, feels his stomach do inside and outside loops on bunker shots, and tempted to throw his clubs in the air and run into the bushes to get away from it all."

Davis, Cubs' physician. Bartell has a rheumatic left ankle which has kept him on the bench since the Cubs evened their California series with the White Sox. Club officials said they did not know exactly when the examination would be rmide. Charles Drake, assistant io Owner Phil K. Wrigley, arrived in Chicago Monday night after a visit with the club in spring training. He minimized the seriousness of Barteirs injury and said Bartell "will be doing a lot oE playing for Hie club this season."

Fred Apostoli May Be Best of Field, as Battles Loom I Pittsburgh hero who wants to be i big boy and fight Joe Louis. [owa Host to Final Events of Y Swims IOWA CITY--Some 250 swimmers and divers will compete in the University of Iowa field house pool, Saturday, April 15, for state Y. M. C. A. championships. Coach David Armbruster said Monday that first and second place winners in each of 30 events of the district meets last weekend would appear here for the title competition. By DREW ailDDLETON Ascsociafed Press Sporfs Writer NEW YORK, (fl)_Unless we are careful the burning question--you can smell it from here--of just who is the best middleweight in the world is liable to be cleaned up come May. A lot of fighters, champions and otherwise, have been called the best middleweight. Few fights have resulted, a tribute to the fighters' restraint. Calling u man the best middleweight is like calling him the best wife beater. * e * The general impression is that Freddy Apostoli is the best middleweight. We heard Al Weill say so., so it must be true. Al blew a lung- ful of cigar smoke into Fred's face and hollered, "Boy. you are the best middleweight in the world." Apostoli excused himself and went in the corner to count 60. He gets mad easy. Mad or not, he soon, will have a chance to know just where lie stands. A tournament of nationwide scope is now under way. All the good mid die weights are in it; also Billy Conn, the overstuffed FIGHT RESULTS By United Press NEWARK. N.

There Solly Krieger, recognized as champion, by the N. B. A., fights Allen Matthews of St. Louis. The only nformatioti about Matthews' form is that he is just back from Australia." This is a non-title fight. All middleweight champions have to light 99 non-title fights. Following this grim display the scene will shift to the New York Hippodrome where Popeye Woods, a native mankiller, will meet Paulie Mahoney, a Buffalo boy, who reminds the fans of Jimmy Slnttery. Both have Irish names. ·-i tt 0 But there is more in store. They claim Ceferino Garcia is a better middleweight than welterweight--· not too hard a trick--so the bolo puncher is being sought by Apostoli. If Garcia wins this one it will be a "fox pass" of the first water as we say at the Garden. Foi- Henry Armstrong beat him and Armstrong is only a heavy lightweight. As a luneup to this match Apostoli is thinking of meeting Sid Nichols, a Texan of awesome reputation at Houston. If the division is up to standard goofiness, Nichols will belt Fred out.
