TUESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 29, 1935 THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texag PAGE THREE BARNfcY IN DISTRESS ONLY "ONCE IN FIGHT BV PAUL MICKELSON, Associated Frees Sports Writer. MIAMI, Pla., Jan. 29 (ff)— Mama Rosofsky's boy Barney, known to the- cheering fight Inn multitudes as Barney Ross, still wore his junior welterweight and lightweight crowns today. Upholding his reputation as one of the finest pieces of fighting machinery in modern day ring warfare, the Chicngoan risked his junior welterweight title against the rushes of Frankle Klick. San Francisco belter, before a crowd of 13,000 nt, Miami municipal stadium last night and emerged an easy winner alter 10 fast rounds. Klick, who earned his reputation last March by holding the twin champion to a draw at San Fran- jclsco, fought all th|3 way last night and even had Barney in distress once, but otherwise was badly outclassed. Ross belted him nJmost nt will and scored the only knockdown, flooring the westerner with a vicious right to the chin in the second round. On the Associated Press score sheet Ross was given eight rounds to one (the sixth) for the clyillenger. The other was even. Ross fought better fights but he was master of ring technique against Klick. Almost always the aggressor, he controlled the situation continually, with one exception when Klick shook him wllh a hard right In the sixth, and .slowed up the challenger \yi h Irs ever reliable left whenever the nJmllcnger got too good. Ross we.'ghsd 136 to 137 for Klkk. With his junior welter title safe for the lime being at least, Ross today said he planned a busy year with his goal set to recapture the welterweight chnmpk irhip he won and then lost to Jimmy McLarnin. Meanwhile, a Brattle promoter Nate Druxman, said he had matched Ross and Henry Woods, Yakima ne- gro, for a title bout in Seattle February 26. Last nighVs fight card was a success from the standpoint of action nm! finances. The gross gate to- talled approximately $35,000. AMERICAN LEAGOE GAPS ARE STUDDED WITH ALAN J. GOULD Rmpr Popnver Who Refuse to Pop Those boxing champions who go trouping around the country picking up easy money in exhibition over-weight and no-decision bouts had better be prepared for a littli surprise now and then. Often the "easy money" proves hard earned. Sometimes the supposedly easy victim, who is expected to be awec by the glamor of the champion'? title and what not, forgets his line and brings on up from the floor— bingo!—and you have what ii known as an upset. Then there an times when a champion's smar manager is out-smarted and bite off more than this "champ" cai chew. The clowning Max Baer ma; laugh at such a possibility, but hi might do a lot worse than listen tc the lament of one Ray Foutts. Mr. Foutts is tlie manager o Teddy Yarosz, middleweight cham plon of the world, in some parts o this country. Now, it seems tha Mr. Foutts, following the acceptei managerial code for handling fisti champions, resolved to start the ne\ year right for his champion. The Champ Gets 'Crowned' Accordingly he signed Yaros to meet an unknown middleweigh by the name of Eddie (Babe) Risko at Scranton, Pa., on New Year' clay. Just to make his champion' crown completely safe, Mr. Foutt forced Risko to coine in a couple o pounds over the middle-weigh limit. Satisfied that he had done hi part, Mr. Foutts settled back in hi corner to watch his pride and jo make a show of the unknown Risko The crowd was small but there wa nothing to worry about, the $150C guarantee was tucked away safel in his pocket. Risko forgot his role and starte right out to pound the champion t the floor. Six times Yarosz bounce off the resin before Mr. Foutts re gained his composure sufficient! to toss in the merciful towel in th seventh round. Risko had $217 t show for his effqrts—the little mal ter of two extra pounds deprive him of the right to sign "champion after his name. January 1st will always be headache to Mr. Foutts for it : doubtful if he will ever forget tha date after what happened on tha fateful New Year's afternoon. The pugilistic limelight wa turned on Risko in full brilliant He was "made"! No Surprise to the Navy Babe Risko may have been ur known in professional fight circle but he enjoyed quite a reputatio in the United States navy. He he! the middleweight championsh: which he won in the summer of 193 when he knockedout Bob Shaw be fore 60,000 cheerful sailors in Pai ama. He would have remained in th navy but for the plea of his mo the that he come home because tl" family funds were very low. Risko fought originally as Sail' Pu.leski. He has had 21 fights, win ning ail but one — and that wa called a draw.

NEW YORK, Jan. 29 (/I 1 )—Nearly 00 of the costliest baseball gems 'reduced by the country's minor eague proving grounds will stud American league training camps this pring. Some are sure to get their chance, ut a majority is likely to be shipped ack for mere polishing after a few veeks of glittering under southern nd California .suns. Tl^o Chicago White Sox, trying [esperately to dig out of the cellar, ,re the most expensive importers, ^hey will look over 13 youngsters, ncluding a couple of outfielders of vhom groat things are expected. The Boston Red Sox and the Vew York Yankees, with an eye on he American league pennant, also ire going after talent in wholesale ots. Each will take 12 recruits to Florida. Eleven newcomers are on the ros- ter of the Cleveland Indians. The Philadelphia 1 Athletics will try out ten, half of them inficlclers. Washington has bagged nine and Detroit eight, while the St. Louis Browns, handicapped by the scarcity of funds, trial with six. Perhaps the prize of the Chicago crop is Vernon Washington, slugging outfielder from Indianapolis. Ho hammered the ball for .367, only one point behind the league-leading mark compiled by Earl Webb of Milwaukee. Another outfield hjopeful is Dan (Bud) Hafey, who batted .324 for the Missions in the Pacific Coast league last year. He is a right handed hitter and a nephey of Chick Hafey of the Cincinnati Reds.

Belew, Dallas banker who las hunted over Texas for 25 years s strongly in favor of a federal law jrohibitlng the hunting of ducks 'or a period of two years. Belew s first a sportsman and then a ninter. His greatest outdoor enjoy- nent is hunting but he would gladly store his gun to. rehabilitate the country with ducks. "There is one definite conclusion for duck hunters unless a federal aw is passed, and that is the un- ileasant rtuth that soon there will je no ducks to shoot. There is no ise of real hunters kidding themselves about the future supply of clucks. The "fly" gets smaller each reason. I am strongly in favor of inland: hunters doing everything :ossible to have a law passed prohibiting the killing of ducks for two years," Below said. Belew, a former baseball player, is the type of hunter that must rally to the aid of wild ducks and illow them time again to darken the sky. And now for news from other Texas sports editors. "Now that Ray Morrison has gone ;o Vanderbilt, Morley Jennings of Baylor, dean of Southwest conference football coaches, is .slated to be the Southwest's representative on tire National Foclball rules committee. "Dr. Harry EccU, head of the Rice department of physical education, represented the Southwest conference at the recent N. C. A. A. convention in New York, and recommended Jennings' appointment. Membership on this important body is a highly regarded honor."—Lloyd Gregory, Houston Post. And since it takes points to win football games the latter quality is all-important. If Bell is appointed to succeed Morrison, as we believe he will be, we predict he won't last two full seasons."—Hop Hopkins, Austin American. STRATFORD GIRLS WIN THAT DIVISION QF CAGE MEET JUST MONKEY BUSINESS PITTSBURGH—William C. Pearce bought a monkey as a part of a theater spectacle, but the monk made a spectacle out of him, he claims, so he wants $10,000. Pearce testified he tried to put "Jim" the monk in the theater lobby to attract trade and as he did so Jim bit him 14 times. Defendant Michael A. Maiorana told the court Jim was "extra tame' J when he left the pet shop. In a basketball game against Drake, Long Island university sharpshooters sank field goals on all of their first eight shots at the hoop. Mrs. C. L. Broaddus of Miami shopped in the city Saturday. John Roosevelt Goes for Polo 'If Matty Bell is appointed head football coach at Southern Methodist university he will hold a record. He'll be thje first man to head the gridiron forces of three southwest conference members— T exas Christian, Texas A. & M., and Southern Methodist. "As far as we can recall Matty and Francis Schmidt are the only coaches who have ever been head men at two of the seven schools. All reports from Dallas still indicate that Bell is as good as appointed already; that his official selection will be only a matter of form. Bell's visit to Abilene in connection with open job at Hardin- Simmons is regarded as unimpqr- tant. He did not apply for the job, but politely accepted an invitation to discuss the prqposition."—Flem Hall, Star-Telegram. "As had been expected, every Tom, Dick, and H'arry is being mentioned as a posible successor to Ray Morrison as head football coach at Southern Methodist university, but after all is said and done we predict that Matty Bell will land the. job. Among the latest names to be brought out for the post is that of Clyde Littlefield, former University of Texas football pilot. "Littlefield, in our opinion, would ma_ke 9. M. U. a much better football coach than Bell. In fact, if the Methodist officials name the latter gent for the job, we predict they'll live to be sqrry qf it. Bell is a fjne gentleman m$ % gvea.t defensive coach, but that lets'him out. He's simply null ana void on the offense.

Twenty Grand Is Unsound, Trainer Brennan Reports LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29 (fl 3 )— Twenty Grand, one oi' the turf'g greatest champions, wip never run another rate if the recommendatlqn of his trainer, William B.rennan, is adopted by Mrs. Payne Whitney, ovyner of the 7-year-old big money /inner. Watching the thoroughbred closely since he fir)isljed third to High Glee and Mate hi a race here last week, Brennan has concluded Twenty Grand Is unsound. He said h|e had written to Ma'jor Louis A. Beard, manager of the Whitney breeding and racing interests, adr vising that the 1931 Kentucky derby winner be withdrawn from the $1.00,000 Santo, Anita handicap, February Edward Scott, stellar Harvester guard, will not accompany the Harvester basketball squad on its road trip, which starts tomorrow. Scott has been ill with a cold for several weeks and his physician has ordered him to get more rest. The Harvesters will leave tomorrow morning to play four games on the south plains. Coach Odus Mitchell will take eight boys with him. Following a stiff workout yesterday afternoon, the coach announced that the following boys would make the trip: Captain J. R. Green, Stokes Green, Nash, Dunaway, Irving. Rose, Ayers, and either Hassell or Herring. Irving, Ayer and Rose will do most of the guard work in place of Scott. Irving, who can also take his place in the forward wall, is making an excellent guard. Rose is also showing more promise this season and has been in most of the starting lineups since Scott became ill. The Harvesters will meet Tulia to morrow night in their first game of the road trip. The Hornets were defeated here during the Christmas holidays but since that time have showed a,complete reversal of form. Co.ach Mitchell anticipates a tough game in Tulia. The second stop on the road trip will be at Ropesville, where one of the strongest high school teams on the plains is located. Ropesville has won 20 games and lost only one this season, according to information received here. Lubbock will be invaded Friday night for the first meeting of the teams. Lubbock is given the rating over the Harvesters, chiefly because of their win over the Amarillo Sandies Saturday night and because of the close game they pjay- ed Lamesa, the team that swamped Amarillo 34 to 9. The Westerners, however, lost a 22-11 decision to Borger, a team beaten by Pampa. A return engagement with Plainview Saturday night will close the trip. Pla.inview lost to the Harvesters by two points here last Saturday night. On their home floor, the Bulldogs should give the traveling Harvesters stiffer competition. CREEL AND BAG LIMITS ARE IN FOR REDUCTION IN 1935 By QUINTON JAMES Music and stamps have been combined before in the commemoration of a composer or musical event, but never in the manner just adopted by Czechoslovakia to mark the one hundredth anniversary ot that country's national anthem. Special sheets of the two values, a 1-korona claret and a 2-korona blue, have printed on pages of music containing bars from the national anthem, which, freely translated, Is "Where Is My Homeland?" The song was written long before the existence of Czechoslovakia as a separate country. Heavy paper is used for the spe- :ial sheets,- each of which contains 15 stamps of each denomination They are ungummed, the stemps being placed almost in the center, with the music above and below. The sheets are enclosed in special folders, selling for the equivalent of approximately $3. In addition to the sheets, which apaprently are intended to serve only in a commemorative capacity the two stamps have been issued on 23, and retired. 'It isn't that I w£js- dissatisfied with Twenty Grand's race the other day," Brennan said. "On the contrary, I thought he ran a remarkable race. But he isn't himself. He isn't running free and I can see that something is bothering him." Brennan explained that the final decision rested wjth Mrs. Whitney. - ; - «r- - — WHAT, NO GLOCKPNSPIELER?

KANSAS CITY, Jan. 29 (If)— Creel nd bag limits are in for reduction n several states this year, while he question of closed seasons on ertain kinds of game has bobbed rp in many as a result of studies by onse'rvationists and wild-life experts. These surveys and resultant rec- mmendations by state commissions lave been placed before legisla- ures considering many proposals to ncre'ase, regulate and protect the latural resources. In a recent report Prank T. Bell, U. S. commissioner of fisheries, es- imated there are 9,000,000 licensed ind unlicensed anglers in the coun- ry. He urged the government to give the fishermen more considera- ion in the way of greater hatchery output. Many states, a cross-section survey by the Associated Press shows are operating hatcheries, but the demand far exceeds production. That's where the creel limits come in. New York would reduce the take of black bass from 15 to 6 and prohibit the sale of lake trout anc muskies. Missouri plans to increase the legal length of eligible bass from 8 to 10 inches and set a limit, irrespective of the time a person has been fishing, at 50 for a 2-ray catch of game fish in any one calendar week. Prohibition of the sale pf large and small month black bass, regardless of where they are caught is sought by Delaware.

The line coach of the Mustangs, once captain of Centre college Pray- n' Colonels and veteran of 12 years coaching in the Southwest conference, "holds an unusually unani- nous sentiment among people close- y connected witli the athletic program of the school," Dr. Charles C. Selecman, president, said. However, it was reported Bell would decline the position, if offered him, if the contract failed tp call 'or more than one year. II is known that Bell believes himself to be beyond the "experimental stage" in coaching and that there are too nnny hazards in football where th,e competition is as keen as it is in the iouthwest conference. Bell has been seriously considering the head coach position at Hardin-Simmons university at Abilene, where it is understood he could receive a five-year contract at a :nlary approaching the figure Southern Methodist plans to pay its coach. However, Dr. Selecman said he "thought he and Bell were pretty much in accord" on the subject and that he favored a three-year contract for any man named to the post as "a guarantee to the coach and to the school." At the same time, it was reported some board members favored a one-year term. Bell formerly was head coach at Texas Christian and Texas A. & M.
