Thfc dog and coy- of« tumbled into a creek. Seglen iroded into.the w»t«r and killed « the coyote with "a club. turn as he was obviously hurt from the hold.' He did lake his- lime about coming out after the bell. The Indian gave him the works in t a hurry- He carried the offensive until he had KTl Gee -where, he wanted him again, 1 faked tv leg scissor, and came up with another crab hold. The fall was over in four minutes. Billy McBuln, the dumpy Laredo, Texas, -Scot, reached the heights of his appearances in the Blythe- vllle ring 'by- downing the rough and tough Lee Myers, Dallas, Texas, In the semi-final. McEuin surprised his most ardent admirers by carrying the fight to Myers, matching everything, am ending up in good shape. It was an excellent match, too, but was marked by the usual roughnes: prevalent among thp bigger boys Every fall came at an unexpected moment ftnd as a result of over- anxiousncss arid laxness. McEutn had the former champ on the, nu in the first, but as he rushed in for the finale he was caught on I point of the chin with a well di reeled shoulder block. Knocked fla on his back, McEuin was an cas .victim for the Jim Londos stc' over toe hold. Time: 19 minutes. McEuin brought his kangaro kicks into action lo pull out o a dangerous spot and turn the lid from dtefeat into victory. Myer was tossing the big boy around an It wasn't doing McEuin any good But he became careless and walke into Billy's poised feet, when h picked himself up McEuin was o his way to the dressing room wit the fall.

Put around 40 • pounds of pad- ng and gloves on the little guy, nd he'll go 170, sopping wet. Tnke IT the uniform after a nlp-and- ick battle, and you'll find he has st from 5 to 8 pounds, so strcuu- isly does the banty work. Dave (Swecnqy) Schrincr. lead- ig scorer of the loop last year- nd top offensive star of the team Ills season, admits that Wortcrs' ,H stands -have as much to dc •ith the success of the learn as dinner's offensive play. The wdiider about Roy. in addl- ion bo his frail build, Is the fad hat he keeps playing at peak spce<! U 3G. Only one other goalie ii he league Is older, George Halns- vorth, who's 38, and only Lornt Chabot can equal his age. Wortcrs Is iTSylng his nth season of major league hockey. Dur- ng that time he has been cut bj lying pucTis, flashing skates, auc sticks. More than 30 have decorated his frame. Lacking stature Is no handicap o Ihc busy little Wortcrs, During the first half of 1928-29 series, the nick came (lashing up at him 075 Jmcs in 16 games, and he stopped it 659 times, allowing an 'average ol only one goal a game. That's minding the nel, brothers. •What he is missing In size, Worters packs under his left vest pocket and under his hat. Probably nc gamer puckster ever' houndcr the Cronln Makes Last Stand While the Boston Red Sox, Dep troll Tigers, and Washington 'Sen'- 1 ators are interested in strengthening their squads during thc.lnler- val between now and next open- Ing day, they are more concerned with the comebacks of their stair pcrforinert, of 1935 I In yawkeyto^n^ the bugs who (crowd FenwiiyVark lo see.the Sox' cavort are 'burning up the .Hot Stove League; with arguments as to whether 'Manager Joe Cronln can come back. Joes oil broken wrist slowed down his play at short., and those long pegs that he used to'negotiate from deep in his territory have been missing • recently. The chisel-chinned Irishman will play third base this'year, a sure sign that he knows Jiis best days are done. Third Ibiig .has been known as the "Old Man's Home,' and If he can't perform there satisfactorily, Joe is smart.chough to give up the ghost.' Hank Grcnbcrg's wrist Is the big matter' of conjecture in Detroit. The large first ' sackcr's absence from the lineup probably cost the Tigers another pennant this year although the Bengals felt the loss of Manager Mickey Cochranc behind the bat for a big share o! the season, and missed Alvin Crowder after arthritis and other ail mcnts forced him out in mldsea son. * . * - * Grcfenbcrg Pampers Wrist Hank will be back at his rcgu lar spot next spring.
