10 TUESDAY, APRLL 4, 1939 Browns Plan to Finish in Fifth Spot MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE OUT of the PRESSBOX BY AL MITCHELL GAZETTE SPORTS MATGRUNTERS STILL TANGLED But It Ain't So! .Gain in AutJiority I was astonished to learn, Monday afternoon . . . and saddened, too . . . that Harry Beatty won't some to Mason City this summer. Harry has called the turn and go for the last time at the North Iowa fair harness races. He died last week, in his home town of 'Carrollton, 111. «* » * A thankless Job, perhaps, is the starting of a field of trot- ling horses. A highly technical one, foo . . . which would try the talents of a showman, a diplomat or a dictator. A har- . ness starting judge has to have some of the qualifies of all three. Harry Beatty did the job here for two years, and did it welL 4 V $ Corning to the North Iowa fair .this season will be E. C. Genereux of White Bear Lake, Minn., to take .the place Harry filled. Starter Genereux will handle Mason City's harness races with the same talent, I'm assured, that Harry Beatty snowed. * * . * In addition, he'll have more authority and discipline behind him than any Judge of recent years.. . . because of a bit gf · action which was taken at a weekend meeting here. * * * The North Iowa fair and five others in this locality will operate harness races as members of the United States Trotting association, it was announced. The national organization is a new one,. a combination of five older associations. Only competing group of near-equal authority is the American; Trotting association, Which may yet combine forces with the new body . . . but did not when the re-organization was completed last December. * 4 S It's easy to see that the starting judge who can speak with the authority of a national association behind him won't have any trouble in bringing errine drivers into line. A "set down" penalty didn't mean so much when the several associations were operating in the midwest . . . but suspensions this season might keep drivers out of competition in too many centers to be dismissed lightly. ,. ·;. , . * . . ! * ; Attending the Mason City meeting which sent fairs in this area under the banner of the United States association were a group of horsemen including: H. W. Householder, superintendent of speed, Central Iowa fair, Marshalltown; Secretary J. H.. Peterson, Clay county fair, Spencer; A. C. Tressler, Blue Earth, Minn.; E. A. Duffy, Fairmont, Minn.; R. "V.

Blue Davey Day to Rest Before Bid for New Chance at Laurels CHICAGO, (£)--A week of rest at Hot'Springs, Ark., comes next for Davey Day of Chicago, who wants another crack at Henry Armstrong's welterweight crown this summer. A r m s t r o n g successfully defended his title against Day last Friday with a technical knockout in the 12th round. Sam Pian, Day's manager, said Monday he had offered Armstrong $35,000 and an option of 40 p Day, who relumed from ,=» York with Pian Monday, said he would take it easy here and in Ho Springs for the next 10 days befor. beginning preparations for his bout next month with Pedro Mon tanez, Puerto Rico fighter.

It was She first lime in Catching the 'hot ones' ought to be easy if the catcher's glove were as hefty as this one seems, in a (rick camera shot of Harold Spimlel. He's an ambitious rookie catcher at the St. Louis Browns' camp in San Antonio. TAMPA, Fla., tU.R)--There is a 3rize crop of rookies in the major eagues this spring, and Woodrow Rich looks like No. 1. This tall North Carolina lad slings 'em from the side as Grover Cleveland Alexander did, and he has lots of stuff. The property of the Boston Red Sox, Rich has been in organized baseball only two years, but you wouldn't know it to watch him work. He is 22 and pitches like a veteran. An American league umpire, who has seen the Gomezes, Ruffings, Groves. Nevvsoms and Howes, calls him the greatest pitching prospect he has seen in 10 years. Jimmy Foxx faced Hich in an exhibition game and after lutilsly swinging, turned from the plate, growling "nuts, the kid's got too much stuff." Not Alone in List Rich, however, is not the only rookie find of the Red Sox. They bare an outfielder and an infielder who look ready for regular jobs. Ted Williams is the outfielder and Jim Tabor has been hitting the ball hard enough to win an infield position, although his fielding lacks polish. The New York Yankees came up with four fine prospects. Catcher Buddy Rosar is a likely understudy for Bill Dickey, and Marvin Breuer may work into a hurling job. Joe Gallagher has looked the best in early training, but Keller was hitting his stride when the Yanks broke camp for their barnstorming tour. Roberto Estalello, a pudgy Cuban, already has won the left field job with the Washington Senators, who have three classy newcomers on the pitching staff. They are Roberto Ortiz, another Cuban; Walter Masterson, 19 year PAIR GET TRIO IN KEG GAMES Tyler-Ryan Leads in Totals as Cleaners, Korners Grab Wins A [iair of thres-game winners and the high-scoring Tyler-Purni- iures topped Mason City league bowling Monday night, with Lvons Cleaners and Kozy Korner gathering in the triple victories. 101 Classic Bids Tom Krumbholz of Mason City placed himself in the prize money with a 747 total in the Lyons Cleaners classic, it was announced Tuesday, as the entry list parsed the century mark, climbing to 101 contestants. No change was seen in the leading scores, with totals of 135 still figuring in the cash list. old Philadelphia Atex Alexander, sandlotter and a Venezuelan whose real name is Carrasquel. A's Get Prize Pair Philadelphia's Athletics turned up a prize pair in Dee Miles and Bill Nagal. Miles looks like the A's first string center fielder, and Nagal, cocky third baseman from Little Rock, may win an infield job. Despite their big investment, it looks as if the Detroit Tigers are going to have to wait at least a year before Freddy Hutchinson is ready for the big time. He won 25 games for Seattle last year, but seems to need more seasoning he looked better againsi " M o n d a y than in any of his previous assignments.
