Vic tors over the highly favored Kan sas City Philcos in the most stun Bradenton, Fla" March 19. Dizzy Dean may be the greatest pitcher in the world, and the loss of the Arkansas cotton picker might cost the team the 1936 championship, but the St. Louis Cardinals are not going to risk their future as a team, simply to satisfy a man they consider the greatest malcontent in baseball Jack Curtiss engages Don Su-gai and Soldier Thomas bathes Herb Bergeson in the special double main event at the armory Friday in the Albany firemen's card. The grapplers will not start their fights until 9:15, following spring opening.-: While the card is a double main event, interest is focused -m the Curtis-Sugai bout. Both wrestlers are fast nnd clever, and the ever-populur Sugai is counted upon for one of his sensational performances. The Thomas-Bergeson bout should be a close second to the Curtiss-Sugai affair. Bergeson has been one of the steadiest grapplers in Albany since the start of the year, but leans well over on the rough side. His last week's choking and towel-hold tactics against Tom Hirai left the fans in a humor' to see him receive some of the like medicine. Thomas, although billed here before, has not performed before Albany fans so the question of whether he can cope with Bergeson remains for Friday night. The Curtiss-Sugai bout probably will be as clean and action-packed as the other match is likely to be rough- Sugai has had a lut of experience since last showing here several times this year and has never failed to please, displaying real ability in w i - i ' ning upset in history of national A. A. U. basketball tournament olay, a determined, hustling K. C. Life team, of Denver, loomed today as the tournament "darli horse", the team to beat. While a capacity crowd of more than 3,000 rocked the rafters of Denver municipal auditorium last night, the Lifers outplayed, out-shot and outfought the veteran Kansas City ciub to win, 41 to 38. Made up almost wholly of players who appeared last year undit the colors of Denver Athletic club, and before that in Wyoming university uniforms, the Life team matched basket for basket with, such stars as Chuck Hyatt, perennial All-American, and Bill (Skinny) Johnson, the great , former Kansas university player.

Salem, Ore., March 19. Astoria's fighting fishermen, defending champions, arid, seven other teams won their way into the second round of the 17th annual state high school basketball tournament in Willamette university's gym . Wednesday. But paired with the 1933 titlists in a. quarter-final bracket. this afternoon was Corvallis, a squad many dopesters think will catch the fishermen in their own nets. Favored for the state B league Championship was Bellfountain, whose boys from "somewhere in Benton county" will face Myrtle Creek. The first day's play brought only two surprises. For the first time since the 1922 tournament, Salem was defeated in an opening game .losing to Tillamook, 33-24. Oregon City came, from behind in the second half of its game with LaGrande to trounce the boys from eastern Oregon, 37-29, after they had led at the half, 15-12. Corvallis ran up the biggest and most one-sided score in outclassing Ashland, 49-18. ' McLoughlin of Miiton-Freewater had little trqpble disposing of Bend, 26-13. The Lava Bears' first visit to a slate tournament since 1924 was made miserable by Monahttn, Mac hi forward, who rang the hoop for 11 points and Fisk, guard, who got 7 to lead the boys from the wheat fields to victory. Bend made only 3 field goals, and scored more points from the free throw line than from the floors McLoughUjv-hcld, only an 8-7 lead at the half.

WOODBURN ADDED TO STATE LOOP; SEEK ONE MORE Scio. (Special) Scio high school boys will begin baseball practices next week, according to announcement of Coach Cecil today. That, in so many words, is what Branch Rickey, general manager pf the St. Louis club, told me last night "15 minutes after he hod talked to the dissatisfied pitcher by telephone. . "Our relationship," Rickey said, "is the same as -it was whorl 1 wrote htm the now famous letter of Jan. 23. Our difference is not one of money. You can forget about that. The issue is a much more important one thun a few thousand dollars. Believe me when I tell you that it involves not only the career of Frank Frisch as manager, and the careers of the other 28 players on the club, but the future, of the Cardinals as a team. To hire Dean as he now teels, and as he felt last year, and the year before, would be ruinous. , ii "I don't mind telling you that there isn't ,a man on the St. Louis team who wants Dizzy as a team mate unless there is a radical change in his attitude. I won't tell you exactly the things he did, because that's hanging out the, team's linen too prominently. But suppose I create a player and give him actions that parallel Dean's of last year?" I said that would be all right, figuring Rickey would hit pretty close to the truth. "You've got a player on your team," Rickey continued, "who second, guesses everything. Noth- ing satislies h'm. It you lose a game when a sacrifice fails, he says the manager should have told the batter to swing. If - you fail to sacrifice he says the manager has lost five games in three WeeKs by not sacril icing. If you catch a night train after a game, the player says you should have caught a day one, and he won't ride on it: If it's a day train, he wants a night one, This same player 3ks the other players their salaries, and then tells them they're saps to work for so little. "Tluee weeks before the end of the season, and with the club but one game out of first place,, the player openly offers to bet his teammates that the club won't win the .pennant. Also, he tells half his males they won't work with him, and deliberately niisplays balls so he'll lose the game. - "We tried treating Dizzy as an eccentric genius for four years," Beavers Get Lark in From Detroit Tigers Elder.

Kruger, high scoring guard found the hoop for 14 points, all on field goals. Tillamook's cheesemakers showed class in putting Salem into the consolation round, 35-24. It was a free-fouling game, with 14 personals being called on each team. Tillamook led at tlie hail, 44-9, nnd with forwards Moore and Walker hittir! the net for 16 and nnisnea me season in iirst place in the Linn county league. The seasonal total was 18 wins in 26 games. The cagers were defeated by Newport at Corvallis March 13 by a 19-16 score in one of the first games of the district tournament.

The Fishermen got away to an early lead but were lucky to be 20-J8 ahead at the ball. ..Gregg, 'Benson forward; tied tlie" scute with two free throws early in the second half, and then a stopwatch which stopped too long threatened to wreck the game. Timer Tom Drynan suddenly found his stopwatch had run completely down. Officials and coaches got their heads together and agreed that two and one-half minutes of the second half had been played. Theji as Sarpola began to find the basket and Benson 'missed many a heart-breaking shot, Astoria kept a slim lead until the final gun.
