Red Vagnone Says John Pesek Tops Nation's Matnicn It didn't take Red Vagnone, popular California heavyweight wresller, very long to learn that he didn't belong in the same ring with John Pesek, Ihe Nebraska tiger man. That's what Vagnone told some of his friends last Tuesday night, following his meeting wilh Pesek at Collins Sport Acres. "I wasn't in there two minutes when I realized I was up against a hopeless situallon," Vagnone stated. "You simply can't do anything wilh a fellow you can't hold. I don't know how he does it, but Pesek's moves seem to be awkward. "Then the first thing you know be isn't where you think he ought to be. I have been around when the boys have compared Londos, Lewis, Pesek, Santell, Marshall and Browning. I've met them all except Browning and I'm here to say Pesek is the tops. Ad Santell would run a second best in my book," the popular redhead concluded. Fesek Is scheduled to meet Ivan Rasputin, the powerful Russian heavyweight, here Tuesday night at the Perry and Bayard streets sport center. He will be forced to Rive away some 40 pounds in weight and will be facing an opponent who -goes in for rough-anri-tumhle wrestling.

One -Hitter As Cooke Wins Women's Net Title By OSCAR .FRALEY FOREST HILLS, N. Y Sept. 2.-(UP) After 'three years of inaction, pig-tailed Sarah Palfrey Cooke came back today to regain the National Amateur Women's tennis title from defending champion Pauline Betz, 3-6, 8-6, 6-4, as Bill Tal-bert of Wilmington, Del., reached the men's finals with a victory over Ecuador's Pancho Segura. Talber had dusted off Segura, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4, when the two Los Angeles women resumed their old rivalry on the famed center court. It was there that Mrs. Cooke had beaten Miss Betz in the 1941 finals before retiring to raise a son. Since then Miss Betz has ruled the roost and this time was shooting for her fourth consecutive title to tie the record held by Helen Jacobs, It looked for a time as if Miss Betz might do it, as the red-haired ex-waitress came from behind to win the first set. But Mrs. Cooke, displaying her old wizardry, rallied to win the next two sets and regain the title. Bitter Battle It was a bitter battle all the way, mostly from the back court, that held 10,000 chilled spectators breathless as the two west coast women matched shot for shot in long exchanges. But in the end it was the accuracy and finesse of the old school the craft of such as Helen Wills, Helen Jacobs and Alice Marble which conquered the slamming tactics of the younger generation. That corner-hitting marksmanship, the same as that which Tal-bert used to defeat Segura and advance to tomorrow's men's finals against defending champion Sgt. Frankie Paiker, had Miss Betz under pressure all the way. Mr3. Cooke broke fast for a three to one lead In the first set before Pauline , came to the net with angled drop shots that brought her even at three games all. She held her ervice in the eighth and then ; ON THE Slit AUKIIVEnSARY'OF LABOR SAY L v j r ; Ml " HE 0fl)aMMC3 IHilSSIiaiE held her serve for victory In the ninth game.-. Again it was Mrs. Cooke off on top in the second set as passing corner shots broke Pauline's delivery in the second game. Both held service then until Miss Betz broke back in the ninth game. But Mrs. Cooke altered her tactics in the fourteenth game as she charged the net and tied up the match. Bets Rallies ' It appeared, as the third set started, that Miss Betz would make It four straight titles. Mrs. Cooke lost service in the third game in her anxiety to make kills at the net and trailed 2-1. But she went back to her corner smashing and broke right back through Pauline's delivery. Pauline went ahead once again in the seventh game with a service break but once again Mrs. Cooke came back to square it up. She held her own servcle in the ninth game and then smashed through Pauline's delivery -to re- Bishop Stansell Class E Champs Bishop Stansell won the 1945 class E amateur baseball championship of Dayton yesterday afternoon by edging the Hearthstone Merchants, 4 to 3. Bishop Stansell was off to a lead by tallying twice in the opening frame but the losers battled back and finally deadlocked the count at 3-all in the top of the fifth. The new champions, how-ever, scored the run that brought the title in the bottom half of the same inning. Bob Likowetz hurled three-hit ball for Bishop Stansell and struck out 10.

' Talbert was hitting the corners much as if he was using a squirrel gun in his semi-final round win over Segura. . Segura, three-time national intercollegiate champion, ranked third among the men, gave it a game try but he didn't have the shots or the forcing game necessary to beat "Long Pants Billy" of the kneelength shorts. Segura took a 4-to-l lead in games in the opening set only to have Talbert push him back from the net with corner-nicking shots, charge on to even the count and then win going away to blast little Pancho's long-cherished dreams of winning the title. For four years the kid from the Andes had tried for the big one. Two times he failed miserably but in the past two years he had marched to the semi-finals as one of the favorites. Both times it was the travelled Talbert, who has lived at Wilmington, Indianapolis and Cincinnati, who crushed his dreams. . It looked for a while as if this time Segura might make it. Charging the net with effectiveness as he and Talbert squared off in the famed center court, Pancho forged into a 4-to-l lead as Talbert netted shot after shot. But then Talbert rammed back through Segura's service three straight times, lost his own once and put the set away by ruining Segura's delivery with cross court drop shots in the twelfth game. From there on it was no contest. Pancho tried but he just didn't have it. Talbert smashed through Segura's serve in the fourth game of the second set for his winning 6-3 margin and duplicated in the tenth game of the second set for his winning 6-3 margin and duplicated in the tenth game of the third set for his 6-4 match triumph, holding his own service all the way. part they have played In of Final Victory. earned holiday, relax refreshing this Beer of "old-time" taste goodness has won Increased popularity Dayton Branch: GEORGE E.

Sept. 2.--AP) Umpires are dignified, respected citizens today, but there was a time when only a courageous, hardy soul would assume the duties of the man in blue. The players in those days were tobacco-chewing, alr-splittlng cuss-ers and the arbiters had to be hardened as well as rough and tough to absorb all the abuse heaped upon them. Hardly a day went by when they weren't ac costed by player or fan, and were invited to go behind the stands. Take the year 1906, for instance. No tougher crew of umpires lived than Tim Hurst, he of that iron jaw and fist; Jack Sheridan, the disciplinarian; Jack Johnstone, the defiant; Hank O'Day, with the biting tongue, who carried ear muffs among his paraphernalia; Silk O'Loughlin, who added insult to injury with his singing verdicts., and Bill Klem, who sever took a backward step from anyone. Once Hurst chased Clark Griffith, then manager of the New York Highlanders clear around the park three times for handing him a lemon that someone in the stands had thrown at the old fox. Another time Johnstone was denied admission to the Polo Grounds by the Giants' gatekeeper on orders from McGraw, because on the previous day the umpire had called a close decision against the Giants. In Johnstone'a absence, McGraw ap pointed Sammy Strang, a Giant substitute, as umpire and when the Cubs, who were the Giants' opponents, refused to heed Strang's cry of "play ball," the "umpire" awarded the game to the Giants on forfeit. Of course it was not allowed by League President Harry Pulliam. Klem's first day as umpire was almost his last. On the very first play, he exiled Manager Fred Clarke of Pittsburgh to the bench.

The windup was that both the umpire and the officers who assayed to protect him had to remain locked in the players' dressing room for hours until the angry mob had dispersed. Things were so bad that one Alderman Zimmer of Chicago introduced an ordinance forbidding the heaving of pop bottles at umpires. The reaction of the players and managers was typical of the era.

To which Alderman Zimmer hastened to reply, "These gentlemen have me all wrong. It's not the umpires I'm worried about. Some innocent persons might be hit by a widely thrown projectile.
