EIGHT 7 MIDDLETOWN TIMES HERALD, M1DDLETOWM, N. Y. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1935. Middies Vindicated as Port Jervis Official Drops 3-Player Protes Naylor Admits Evidence Lacking in Last-Minute Condemnation of Testa CJUPERINTENDANT Arthur H. Naylor of Port Jervis dropped his last- 0 minute protest of three Middletown players at one of the largest Duso League Council meetings ever held yesterday. He admitted he had no tangible evidence on which to govern his protest issued on the eve of the Thanksgiving game, against Middletown's Captain, Lawrence Testa and announced at the meeting's outset that the protest could be regarded as a dead issue. However, Superintendent Ernest H. Burdick of Middletown apparently refused to be put in a position suggesting that Middletown was guilty but forgiven. So he insisted on presenting his argument in refutation of the eligibility protest against Banker, Testa and Costanzo. No official vote was necessary, because the complaint had been dropped, but it was agreed that Middletown's status of innocence had received a clean bill of health. Mr. Naylor revealed that the Port Jervis Board of Education had voted recently that in the future the high school was to play any team which the rival school's principal had certified eligible. However, that policy was not adopted by other Duso members yesterday. "The question was not voted upon and the rights of protest were left as they now arc. The difference between Middletown's early protest of Josh Fe- aorka and that admittedly issued as a return compliment by Port Jen-is was traced. Mr. Nayior revealed that the Rochester /.esident Fedorka later was barred play. That interpretation of the Central Committee had given an interpretation favoring Port Jervis of the rule by which · from was made, Mr. Naylor asserted, before Port Jervis appealed to the same (Central Committee official after an adverse Duso Council decision. Thus Port Jems had every reason to believe that the higher official would reverse the league's ruling. In that case, he admitted, the protest of toe Middletown players would not ha.e been made. But when information irom Rochester disclosed that the Council decision was sustained, Port Jervis officially entered its protest. Middletown learned of the action only on the aay bslore the Thanksgiving game, it was against such delay in entering the long-infended protest t. at Mr. Burdick particularly lound reason for criticism as well as the fact that there "appeared not one shred of evidence against any of the three boys in question." Middletown also had sought and obtained from the Central Com- muiee an interpretation of the rule on which Fedorka later was protested and subsequently banned. The rule asserts that no hl school atr.lete shall participate on an outiide team once the high bcnool team has opened its season. Middletown asked whether "outside team" necessarily meant one engaged in the same variety of sport as the scholastic unit. In other words, if Fedorka was playing on tne high school football team would he be barred for playing out-side baseball or isould he be olisted onh/ if he played outside football. OHicial interpretation from the Committee's secretary was, literally that he would be ineligible if he perlormed with the Red Sox baseball team after the high school piajed its first football game. It has been agrt i that it was unfortunate that ^edorka, star hallback, should have been the goat when others also may have plajed with him but failed to get caught However, it has been pointed out the League and Slate iu!a violation was far more obvious than thObe of Middletown athletes hauitually protested by Port Jervis in the past The meeting, held at the Minlsmk Hotel, was entirely friendly and rehtions between the schools Involved remained amicable. Representatives included superintendents, principals and coaches from Port Jervis, Middletown, Newburgh, Kingston. Monticello, Liberty and Ellenville. PORT JERVIS WINS HERE IN ORANGE-PENN The Port Jervis Triangles beat the State Hospital Crescents 26 to 22 here last night and thus put the fourth straight sinker on the hospital quint in Orange-Perm League play. And, strangely enough, the Crescents have been beaten by rallies during the last five minutes of play in each of those lost causes. Last night the Crescents led 6-5 at the quarter, 16-8 at the half and 21-15 at three-quarter time. But in that last frame the Triangles got down to business and rang up eleven markers while the home club was collecting only a singleton. The Crescents play at Matamoras tomorrow night. At that time Florida will face Warwick in a game which may mark the overthrow of the league-leading Florida Reds. For they'll be without Charley Stoll who'll be appearing with the Ros- kins Big Five in the_ Middletown Armory. Matamoras visits the Hospital Friday night in a return. EXPECT YANKS TO MAKE DEAL TO BOOST HOPE United Press Selects Pro All-American Teams Extra Strength of Detroit and Red Sox Alarms Colonel Jacob Ruppert CHICAGO--Officials of the Ncv York Yankees are so panicky tl::y are expected to announce an important player deal during t h e major league baseball meeting today. Col. Jacob Ruppert, brewer and owner, either must unloosen the strings of his ample purse or see us team wind up below the Boston Red Sox and the Detroit Tigers next year. A week ago Ruppert and Joe McCarthy, manager of the Yankees, announced confidently that they ould win the flag in 1936 with their present squad. Two deals yesterday caused rapid change in their optimism. First, Jimmy Foxx, slugging firs baseman, and Johnny Marcum, great young pitcher, were sold t the Red Sox by Philadelphia Second, Al Simmons, erstwhil batting champion of the Americar League, was sold to the Worl Champion Detroit Tigers by th Chicago White Sox. The transactions added so much strength to the Boston and Detroi clubs that Col. Ruppert admittec he might be forced to spend monej to put his team in next year's race Ruppert was willing to trade Ben Chapman, his temperamental outfielder, and Johnny Allen, pitcher The lineup: Port Jervis (20) Crescents (22) J.

But Cleveland officials turned down their thumbs and said: "We won't trade but you can buj Harder if you put up enough cash money." The Indians are more interestec in obtaining a catcher than an outfielder, so Manager Steve O'Neill has concentrated on that department. One rumor said Cleveland and the Chicago White Sox have a Today's Sports Parade By HENRY McLEMORE MOKE CRYSTAL GAZING Madam Henrietta Dunbar, the world teeress oi Sixth a\enue, who lias been an mtei national figuie ivcr since she correctly predicted the loss (in gross ton.s) of the Cattle of Jutland U\o days before a shot was fired, g n e me a call today to sa .she h.id temporarily T:iis from 'ooth-siying announcement e.ime as s'jrpiue, for this is just the tenth oi the month ncl Madam Dunbar's istirements usua'ly come with the rent, around the Ili.st But this tenement, .she cxpluned, was Uif- ferjnt A month or so ago she made quite a tiay sum of moncv (on a three automobile-accident p.i'lay on the Roose\elt bojs) and Leuig up m j c - u s , decided to take a long i e.st Knowing th it Madam Dunbar Is reallv up in jciri--one of her ticisured possessions is a photograph showing her i_s a grown woman watching the impeachment picccedmgs against President Audi ew Johnson--I complimented her on her good sense And I suggested that she .say her farewell with a prediction on the outcome of the Louis-Paulino fight at Midison £q,:are Gaidon Friday night. At first she refused, and ga\c as reason the fact tnat ihe had clii- mantled her sooth-saying equipment. Her crystal globe, she .said, r'ready had been converted into a combination reading lamp and fish bowl, her incense burner into an ach tray, and her turban into a runner for the piano. "And without those things," she said, "I just can't summon the spirits and you know how important the spirits are to me." Yes, I did know, and that's how I finally managed to get Madame Dunbar to foresee the outcome of the battle between Louis and TJz- cudun. " "If you'll do it," I told her, "I'll send you a bottle of the finest spirits you ever tasted. Some I got from Brother MacMullan in Hamilton. It'll have you juggling that reading lamp and running up and · down that runner in half an hour " So Madame Dunbar agreed to sit herself down right there in the phonebooth and predict the winner of the. fight right out of her head. It took her but five minutes to tear away the misty veil which shrouds the f u t u r e ' and project herself equarWy into Madison Square Garden more than three days ahead of time.

Proponents of liberalized lules hoped to commit the thirteen universities of the conference at their annual meeting tomorrow to a standard like that adopted last nigh by the Dixie Conference, which voted u n a n i m o u s l y at Bhm- mgham to permit payment equal to room, board and tuition to athletes for "work sei vices." The Dixie Conference compnscs ten old South colleges. Louisiana State University Vanderbilt, Georgia. Kentucky and Auburn, paiticularly, enjoyed hugely successful seasons at the ticket windows. Dr. L C Glenn, Vanderbilt faculty athletic director recognized the pioblem by refusing to participate in the post-season Or- of Flonda Bowl game Dr John J Tigcrt University, picsident of the confe-- ence, announced a month ago he would bring up the question of subsidization at the annual meeting He indicated he would ask modification of rules to eliminate charges of hypocrisy and deception about aid given athletes Opposition a l o s e immediately Glenn said subsidization of college athletes may, "like mm dor," be ineradicable but .should be fought nevertheless.

""l^ard o, its equivalent " athletes arc eligible 'on the other students for ,deal coming up but there was no confirmation. Because of the Foxx and Simmons deals, the major news yesterday broke in American League headquarters. It may be different today, since the way jfor trades in the National League was opened when Bob Quinn was awarded the franchise for the Boston Braves Backed by a syndicate of business men, Quinn will run the Braves next year with a view toward pulling them out of the red. His plan was given unanimous support by National League executives with the s t i p u l a t i o n that Charles Francis Adams, former ma- Joiity stockholder in the club,would have no connection with the team Kenesaw Mountain Landis, commissioner of baseball, frowned on Adams because of the lattei's race horse connections. National League owneis and managers have- been reticent .so far about their trading plans. Casey Stengel of Brooklyn says all he wants is ball players; Bill Terry of the Giants is fairly well satisfied cy of St Louis savs he has had no offers but will dispose of all but important cogs. Manager Charley Giimm of Chicago wants to trade Outfielder Chuck Klein to the Phillies for Pitcher Curt Davis; Pittsburgh and Cincinnati will retain their present squads and Boston has no money to spend and no players to spare. Both leagues held the first meetings yesterday. The Nationals went on record to continue their night baseball policy status quo. The Americans" again voted unanimously against floodlights The Nationals will do the same next year as they did in 1835--permit each club to play sex en home games at night Ford Prick, picsident of the league one year, was re-elected for a two-year term and given a raise. Boston was selected as the site for the 193fi all-star game. The Americans elected Ruppert vice president to succeed the late Frank J Navin of Detroit. Walter O. Bnggs, new owner of Detroit Tigcis, was elected to membership in the league. The American League voted, subject to appioval by the National League, to admit children undei thiiteeii to ball games lor twcnty- fi\e rents and to place oastein teams on a schedule which would .··end them against western opponents on a 3-3-3-2 basis Undei the piesent system, eastern clubs play two four-game sciics and onetniei- game series in the West.

I. T. Pr«piet Hir iif Playeri ii Sane MW ner as Laborers contenders. Max Schmelmg. Joe Louis, Paulino Uzcudun, Isadore Gastanagga and Charley Retzlaff--all now belong to the man who, in less than a year, has almost filled the spot once held by Rickard. Only star outside Jacobs' realm is the champion himself, James J. Braadock, who is under contract to fight for Madison Square Garden in his first title defense. But the rapidity with which Jacobs has tied up all the available contenders makes it almost certain that when Braddock steps into the ring next year to lay his title on the line Mike will have a finger in the promotorial pie. Jacobs made this a virtual cer- ;amty yesterday by signing Schmel- ng, a former champion, to box jouis next June over the fifteen- ·ound route. Schmehng signed af- fi being informed by the New York State Boxing Commission that he could not meet Braddock before eliminating Louis. Thus the- Garden is placed in the .pot of having a champion but no worthy challenger, because all of hem are under option to Jacobs.

An important stipulation in the ontract provides that the document r.11 be voided in case Louis is beat- n m any of his three next fights --Paulino Uzcudun on Friday Isa- or Gastanaga of Spam at Havana n December twenty-ninth and Charlie Retzlaff at Chicago, Janu- ry seventeenth. Maxie agreed not to accept any natch before the Louis fight. If .ouis should lose to any o f his next three opponents, Schmelm"- would beecome a free agent. But the catch there is that the man who beats Louis also is under option to Jacobs and by eliminating the number one challenger, he automatically wojld step into that spot. Schmel- J!g. therefore, still would have to do business with Jacobs in order to stay in the running for a crack at the crown he once held. On the other hand, Schmelmg might give up his idea of a comeback should Louis be blasted from the picture because no other opponent could possibly bring in the gate which Joe will. Max has insisted that all he wants is to win back the title--not an opportunity to make money. But. significantly, Max heartily agreed to fight Louis yesterday after he was told he couldn't have Braddock--but he immediately asked for, and got, a $20,000 advance. Max will attend Friday's Louis- TJzcudun bout and will return to Germany on Monday. He plans to return to America m March to become properly acclimated befoie starting training Jacobs will stage the fight at Yankee Stadium and figures it will draw between $1,500,000 and 52000,000. A definite date will be announced later. Each fighter gets thirty pel cent of the net gate. TIMES Hf PAID ~ Result GAMES TONIGHT Women's League Teachers vs. Am Legion.

He scoffed at the common defense of football as a character builder and said college coaches generally use such "obscene, blasphemous and nUauld" language to their players as "far outdistances the most colorful Navy speech." As a professor of naval architecture, Owen said, he considered himself an authority on navy language. He proposed ihat universities and colleges remedy the condition he alleged by employing college athletes just as you would hire ordinary laborers." "It would be honest," he said, "and the public doesn't care who the players are or where they come from." He named Harvard and Ohio State Universities as flagrant examples of exploitation of football playew, but said that "every college m the country that has a major football team Is engaging in commercialism and trying'to cover it up." He said the most common method of evading rules of amateurism, a soft job which is the merest sham to cover up the real transaction," is so universally used as almost to be considered ethical. "If that doesnt satisfy the prep school athlete he is offered a hand- outof approximately $1,000," Owens said. "I've seen this work. I know how it looks. There are some amateurs--but not many." Coach Dick Harlow of Harvard became Owens' text for discussion of coaches. Harlow has to get a winning team within two years, he said, "or lose his job, so Harvard has been scouting high schools, searching every nook and corner for material this year." _ AHOY KERR COHf LETES\ SELECTION OF ELEi'i Dick Hnlty Will Select Of Half ·/£«!', $,.«* HAMILTON-- Half the easte squad which will play a weste all-star gridiron combination in Francisco on New Year's Day completed todc;- when Andy Ke Colgate coach, announced that had filled his allotment or ele players.
