Although outclassed all the way. the Fayettc county battler was game to the end. MODERN WOMEN Sports Gleanings Frankie Fribli of the Cardinals has his fingers crossed. He has more than a faint suspicion that the Cardinal farm system has come up with another Joe Mcdwick in the person of 21-yeav-old Enos Slaughter and the Fordham Flash is keeping his digits in the luckcy position, hoping to confirm that suspicion wh'on the Redbirds gather at their St. Petersburg, Fla., training base in Marqh. Slaughter, a left handed baiter, was with Columbus in the American Association last year, leading the loop in batting with a .382, the total hits with 245, in total bases with 391 and in runs scored with 147. He had 42 doubles, 13 triples and 26 home runs and drove over 122 runs. Many competent boxing critics express the opinion that Buddy Bacr, a comparative novice, is a better fighter now than his older brother. Max Bacr, ever wai at the height of his career and the major test comes Jor him when he goes up against Gunnar Barlund in March in New' York City. Manager Ancil Hoffman is gradually building up Buddy in the hope that he'll wear the heavyweight crown. H« has already turned down a bout with Joe Louis, claiming that Buddy isn't quite ready for the Brown Bomber. Bill McKcchme of Wilkinsburc, one of the most popular baseball managers in the major league, is n big booster for his new team, the Cincinnati Reds. He Is consistent in Hs declaration that the Reds "won't finish last." McKcchnie has been having unusually good success in the past with pitchers. The newest thing m golf (and is Hokc Harrer interested) is a glove for the left hand which has stays affixed in a way claimed to prevent incorrect wrist movement and take the slice out of the swing. Harold Galloway, a golf pro, is the inventor. Jimmy Dykes, manager of the Chicago White Sox, Insists loss of Tony Lazzcri may cost the Yankees the pennant next summer. "Lazzeri was the brains of the Yankee club," Dykes said. "Whenever a pitcher got into a jam, whenever a catcher was undecided what to call for, whenever the outfield needed advice --they all went to Tony for help. He was the dynamo that ran the Yankee club. Watch what happens next season." Tommy Henrich, Yankee outfielder, got his start as a softball player. K's father, a plastering contractor In Massillon, Ohio, didn't know whether or not Tommy ever would be .1 hitter but he did know that the boy had a phenomenal throwing arm and for that reason he wanted him to prepare himself for a baseball career. Tommy wasn't allowed to play football and as his school didn't have a baseball club he had to go in for softball. All track experts and loading milcrs of the day agree that a four- minute mile is humanly impossible. Pat Robins, International News Service writer, however, says that Sidney Wooderson, the English law clerk, and the Americans Glenn Cunningham, Archie San Roman! and Don Lash are four runners with an outside chance to turn in such a performance if conditions are perfect. Wooderpon lowered the mile record to 4:06.6. , Mrs. Harriean'i Funeral. The funeral for Mrs. P. J. Harrigan of West Cedar avenue was held Monday morning with a prayer at the home followed by solemn requiem high mass celebrated at the Immaculate Conception Church. Rev.

Dorit Let BEER DRINKER By Jack Sorda By LAWTON CARVER I. N. S. Sports Writer. NEW YORK, Feb. 4.--Two Ton Tony Galcnto, who also is known as the Jersey Night Stick, is about to get himself popped open at the seams and scattered about the premises by virtue o£ delusions of grandeur which have overtaken him following his victories over some heavyweights who cau be called Eddie or Joe for short. Their names don't matter anyhow. The most recent of thc^c gents appeared as scheduled :» few days ago over m Orange, N. J .. which is Galento's home town, took \\\s knockout like a man and went wearily on his way. A capacity crowd, and hundreds o£ other Galento admirers who wanted to *CP the fisht but couldn't get in trooped with Galcnto down to his saloon for a few rounds of celebration. Some couldn't get in there either, the crowd was so big, but they still were trying at last reports. All o£ which gives you on idea of how Galcnto stands with the people around home. He's the lops, to coin a phrase, and they stand for hours bending elbows with him over his bar just to be near his left hook. That's what slays his opponents and is his one asset. Also he is a real nice guy personally, with a simple air about him scarcely m keeping with his appearance. But the truth of it all is that he really can't fight much, and he is jun about to get himself a large order ot trouble. In appearance and ring style he is a thiowback to the rough and tumble days. He stands scarcely above medium height, but weighs around 215 with a great part of the poundage piled in layers around his middle. To be sure he has been belting the Eddic.s and Joes kicking up to now, but he is not satisfied with that. During the celebration following his most recent knockout he finally broke down under severe pressure and confessed that he would take Sirs. Mary MorriV Funeral.
