It was Mr. Rickey who let John Berly cscapq from the Cardinals' farm at Rochesler and into ihe uniting arms of John McGraw. . . Berly, whose fine pitching Ihis year has begun lo remind Polo Grounds old - timers of Christy Mathev.-spn, is one of those pitchers who has been kicked around for •several years in the minors. McGravv scouted him personally lasl year at Rochester. He purchased him al a price that was said to be fairly fahcv. During Ihe 1930 season "Berly "took part in 30 games, won 16 and losl eight and allowed the visiting fire ach ieam got but five hlls. A ingle by Johnson with Walker on iasc gave Hie Users their 1 to 0 riuniph. runs per game. Rickey had been shifting Berly for some years at various Cardinal farms. Berly's routes from the spring training camp of the Cards Berly is built on lines thai Mc- Gi'aw 1 favois for pilchers. five feet II inches in heiglil nnd weighing 385 pounds. He has a good curve ball and a high hard one. Berly also is rated as a "smart pilclur who kncsvs how to \vori: with the head as well as the arm. There is something about his face and build that is mindful of old Bi? Six. A recent five-hit victory over the Reds put Berly among the six regulars McCra-.v likes to work—l-'itz- slmmons. Walker. Hubbell. Mitchell. Morrell and Berly. With these six taking their turns McGraw believes he can win a championship.

Toledo, O. Under official A. A. A. supervision, t strictly stock Willys Six Roadster tweeps dramatically to five amazing new speed records for American stock cars in its class—one mile, flyiruj start, 50.925 seconds, average 70.692 miles an hour; standing start, 61.56 seconds, average 58.479 miles an hour; one kilo, flying start, 32.225 seconds, average 69.416 miles an hour; standing start, 42.17 seconds, average 53.045 miles an hour; one mile, flying start, second gear, 66.90 seconds, average 53.812 miles an hour. The gear ratio used in these recor£4»r*akin< runs was 4.6 to 1; These records continue the long string of remarkuhlf performance achievements of the Willys Siv, which include winning first and second pluccs in the ininual mountain .race from Mexico City to 1'nehl-a. Pitied against a field comprised mostly of ciglil-cylindcr cars, llic winning Willys Six covered the course of 75.8 miles in 75 minutes. The record for the steep Mount Baldy climb is also held by a stock Willys Six, which clipped 38-3/5 seconds off the former record. In the last Pike's Peak race two stock Willys Six Roadsters won first and second places. The winning time of 24 minutes, 18-1/5 seconds is the fastest on record for a stock car under $1000. These records are convincing evidence that the Willys Six is the fastest, liveliest and most powerful of all low-priced cars. Courier Newt Want Ads Par. MORGAN MOTOR CO. Blytheville, Ark. Utt.Mtfy.
