Jack Doyle Whips Chi Fishmonger LONDON, April 28 (AP)—British heavyweights, long the subject of impolite laughter, are moving back toward the traditions of the British prize ring, much to the delight of British fight fans and the discomfiture of American enthusiasts. Irish Jack Doyle's decisive victory over King Levinsky, the Chicago fishmonger, coming on top of Tommy Farr's triumph over Max Baer, has given the British heavyweight boxing a prestige not enjoyed since the Halycon days of the London prize ring rules. The King, who met many American heavyweights with more stuff than he showed against Doyle, didn't have a chance against the Irishman. Doyle, a fair boxer, stayed away from Levinsky's swings and cut up the Kin^fish at long range throughout 12 rounds. lEStifpflBS (By The Associated Press.) Bob Weiland, Joe Medwick and Stu Martin, Cardinals: • Weiland pitched Cards into first place with six-hit, 3-1 victory over Pirates; Medwick hit two singles and double scored one run- and drove in another; Martin got two hits, stole a base, drove in a run, and figured in two double plays. ., / FEATURES VALUE Buyers of CMC trucks get more of everythingt In the popular half-ton types, for 'instance, they get either 112- Jneh or 126-inch wheel base 'With the biggest standard bodies available anywhere.

Phone 124 MOTORS TRUCKS & TRAILERS CHICAGO, April 28 (/P)—Old Mother Nature, Whom the major league magnates tried' to outsmart this year, chuckled today over 29 bargain days she has arranged for the fans. On the theory that the weather gets better as springtime wears on with fewer postponements as the logical result, the club; owners decider to stage their grand openings a week later than usual this year. Bu the weather was be outmaneuvered. After be'uavlng itself for a week before the inaugural day, It suddenly turned sour. Today, the American league had 16 doubleheaders piled up, and National league fans had 13 coming. "After delaying the opening of the season a week to get better weather we have to run smack Into an unusua run of rain and cold postponements William Harridge, American leagui president, said. The Ironical part OL it is that our Eastern clubs could have played every day during the week before the season opened. "It was just a gamble, though," hu added optimistically, "and the weather probably will square things later, perhaps at world series time." The fans won't have to wait quite so long this year for those two games-for-the-price-of-one Sunday bargains. Instead of withholdini Sunday doubleheaders until afte June 15, the Majors this year wil permit them as soon as each clul has had three Sunday dates at home which will have been accomplishe oy June G. TEXftSTECH TO PUT COLLEGE OF S SIGNS MONEY BILL WASHINGTON, April 28 (IP)— The White House announced today thai President Roosevelt signed the $500,000,000 naval appropriation bill for the 1938 fiscal year before leaving early this morning for a fishing cruise in southern waters. YOUNGSTERS LOOK GOOD IN TRAINING TUSSLE Cards Lead National League After Victory Over Pirates Coach Odus Mitchell's "Topees" won a 6 to 0 intra-sc-Uad football game from Coach J. C. Prejean's Jaypees" yesterday afternoon on wind-swept Harvester field. The only score of the game came n the first quarter when Turner, jlaylng end for the "Topees", broke hrough and grabbed a loose ball dn an attempted reverse and ran 45 ards for a touchdown. The "Jay- ice" backfield tried to work the reverse around left end but the ball lipped out of someone's outstretched lands and was blown directly into Turner's arms and he had a clear jath to the goal line. Play of newcomers to the Har- estei' squad was outstanding. Many of the boys trying out for the first ;ime, or coming up from the Gueril- as, gave coaches chances to smile. Among the boys noticeable were Brown, Coshow, Freeman, Leavltt, Dull, Carr, Dunaway, Wear and others. With Norman Cox, end, out of the ;ame with a bad knee, Turner had iO be used at end. The former mckfield man played a stellar game and he may be kept at the wing josition. Coshow, transferred from ;uard to tackle, also looked good n his new position. Speed featured the work of Leavitt and Freeman in the ball toting department. Wear- also made some nice runs. Little Don Smith called signals in place of the injured Captain J. W. •raham and he did a fine job at ils new assignment. He also scooted with the ball to advantage. Reynolds and McMahan looked good as ;nds with Mathews and Stiles shin- ng at guard jobs. All the boys showed spurts of great football at sometime during the game. Next week will be spent in polish-- ing up rough spots and on May 9 ilie spring training season will close, arobably with a game against thu axes who want another crack at the "greenies."

Dull, Hubert, Flemming, Cunningham. 180,000 EXPECTED TO SEE SPEEDWAY THRILLS INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., April 28 (JP) —Eddie Rickenbaoker, war ace and head of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation, predicted today the 500-mile automobile race here May 31 would be the fastest In history. He estimated 180,000 persons from all parts of the nation would view this year's race, compared with last year's record-breaking crowd of 168,000. Lou Meyer, only three-time winner, set a new record of 109.069 miles an hour in capturing last year's grind. Rlckenbacker said there were reasons why Meyer's record could be shattered. "One of these is the elimination of a mental hazard at the turns in the way of resurfacing the track with rock asphalt." he pointed out. "The drivers will be able to sweep through these turns at lightning velocity and know that their tires will take hold without skidding before they hit the bricks at the straightaway. "Another mental hazard which has been cast into the discard is that of fuel supply," he continued "In the race this year there will be no limit on the amount used, although economy is to be' encouraged in the way of a special prize among the winners. Denworth to Play Kellerville Club DENWORTH, April 28—Denworth Softball enthusiasts organized a softball team this week and will play their first game Friday at Kellerville. Both men and boys will make up the Denworth team which was gotten together for. recreation during the summer months. Several good players reported for first practice. BY BILL Associated Press Sports Writer. II you catch Manager Frankle Frlsch smiling today, don't blame the man. It's a wonder he isn't laughing out loud. Poi' one thing, his St. Louis Cardinals are leading the National league, after beating the Pirates into J-l submission yesterday as rain washed out every other major league game, But that's not all. In pre-season ratings, experts summed up the Cards' pitching staff with a "Dean. Warneke, and then what?" Frlsch believes he may have the answer in Robert Welland, six feet, four inches and 215 pounds of left-handed pitcher. The gangsters r.csd a Capable southpaw and Welland, who brdkt the Pirates' four-game winning streak with a six-hit National league debut, looks like that man. He has size. He has experience— first in the majors with the White Sox in 1928, since then with Louisville, the Red Sox, Indians, Browns and Rochester. He has speed—tops in strike-outs last year in the International league with 171, he fanned six Buccaneers yesterday. He's a horse for work—23 victories and 13 defeats with Rochester In 1936, appeared in the most games, 55. Weilnnd was behind only at the start of yesterday's game. He served Johnny Dickshot, Pittsburgh recruit left fielder from Buffalo, a home run ball in the first inning. The Cards tied the score In the second, added another run In the fourth and the final one in the fifth. But even that wasn't all that pleased Frlsch: his Cardinals are running riot in all departments of the game. Jerome Herman (the one and only) Dean is heading the pitching parade with Wayne Lamaster of the Phillies at two triumphs. Then there's Du'cky-Wucky Medwick, second in the batting race with an average of .500. Stan Bordagaray is tops In scoring with 8 runs. Right behind Frenchy, at 7, comes Joe Medwick, who also is pacing the circuit with 13 hits, and is tied for the lead in doubles at 5. Johnny Mize and Pepper Martin are running neck-and-neck for driving in rims with seven apalce. JAMESON AND GOLDTHWAITI SOLVE WICKED GOLF COURSE BY W. T. RIVES. TEXARKANA, April 28 W)—Sixteen women vigorously assaulted the dog-legged Texarkana Country club course today in the Texas Women's Golf Tournament, but so far as the gallery was concerned, only two were playing—Betty Jameson, blond young champion, and Mrs. Frank Goldthwaite, pretender to the throne. Only the two favorites apparently have solved adequately the baffling puzzle that makes up the course— 6,600 yards of doglegs, traps, trees and u^ceptively rolling greens. They caw 16 through first round matches yestera^' ln rollicking style as three hlghly-regu:' ded entrants found the course too mucu an d w = re eliminated. Slightly perturbing Betty and to. rs Goldthwaite was the possibility they might run into tartars today. The 17-year-old San Antonio lass mot Mrs. Jake Hamon of Dallas, who sprang one of the tournament's upsets in defeating Mrs. John Parnell .state mulcipal champion, in 22 gruelling holes. Mrs. Goldthwaite, hard-hitting Curtis Cup star, teed off with Miss Helen Warren, who played with marked confidence in eliminating Mrs. Karl Hoblitzelle of Dallas, 8 and 0. Mrs. J. Lee Wilson of San Antonio, twice state municipal links queen, and Jo Henson, raven-haired youngster from Paris, were victims in the other gallery-gasping reversals. Mrs. Wilson lost to Mrs. W. T. Stafford of Dallas in 19 holes. Miss Henson was confounded by a misbehaving driver and the calm perseverance of Miss Kathryn Pearson of Houston, 3 and 1. Miss Pearson deserted tennis, at which she once was intercolleglte champion, for golf only seven months ago. Her form attracted many, however, and Club Professional Don Murphy tagged her as "a darned good golfer and one to watch In the tournament." Miss Jameson coasted to a 9 to '7 , victory over Mrs. Frank McNally of Longview yesterday and Mrs. Goldthwaite won handily from Betty fid- wards, Dallas, 4 and 2. The gallery observed that the principal difference between the two favorites' golfing and that of the remaining contestants was In the long game. Far, accurate drives when they meant much gave Miss Jameson and Mrs. Goldthwaite a big edge. The San Antonio girl had a fine 39 on the front side, amply proving she had shed the erratic tendencies of her qualifying round. In other matches today Miss Pearson met Mrs. Ike Handy of Houston; Mrs. H. A. Peterson of ,^-us played Mrs. E. R. Hury of San Anv° ni °; Mrs ' E - H ' Wohlfahrt, Dallas, mb.^ Mrs. W. T. Stafford, Dallas; Mm. Salph Randolph, Dallas, played Mrs. £• C Hopkins, Texarkana! Mrs. F. E. Pharr, Texarkana, played Mrs. J. 8. Tate of San Antonio, and Mrs. R. E. Winger, Fort Worth, met Mrs. C, P. MC' Caulliff, Dallas. _ _ BICYCLE BACE ENDS LOS ANGELES, April 28 CAP)— The American team of Bobby Walthour, Jr., and Oscar Junerwon the 6-day bicycle race ending early. today, scoring 1,182 points. Tne Italian team of Andy Devlto and Frank Turano duplicated the lap stealing stunt of Walthour and Juner in the final minutes and finished on even terms in laps but look second place with a point score of 848. Martin has stolen four bases in five games. KOSENBLOOM BATTERED LOS ANGELES, April 28 CAP)— Slapsie-Maxie Rosenbloom, a tired shadow of the man who won and lost the light heavyweight championship of the world, had his r battered face repaired today after a ten-round defeat by Alberto Lovell, Argentine negro. _ LUBBOSK, April 28 (fP)— Out here where the west .already has begun and football knows no season, there will be a full-fledged football game Friday night. Not content with roaming wide over the nation during their regular fall season, the Red Raiders of Texas Technological College are all set-for a springtime tussle with the College of Mines gridders from El Paso. The game will serve as something of a climax to five weeks of strenuous spring practice in which the Raiders sought to balance the Notre Dame offense and an unnamed defense. The Tech team has its eye on Kenneth Heineman, Mines quarterback with a reputation for sensational passing. King Oil won two games and Texas Company dropped a pair this week in -the Pampa Softball association playoff. The King Oil men won an 8 to 7 battle from Cities Service Monday evening and yesterday downed ChamplJn 18 to 11. Danciger dropped Texas yesterday evening, 15 to 11, and on Sunday afternoon Stanolind won from the Texas boys in a postponed affair. "I never thought America could do it" Nobody could blame Bohemia for being proud of her beer. For centuries connoisseurs paid tribute to the skill of her brewmasters. So, when Bohemia salutes the excellence of an American- made beer, it must be distinctive. Yes, as early as November 3, 1903, Bohemia's Experimental Station for the Industry of Brewing reported officially that America's BUDWEISER equalled Bohemia's best brews on every test and, in some, excelled them. Would you like to know why? You also will find the answer'in every bottle of BUDWEJSER yoxi drink. MAKE THIS TEST! ? PRINK Budweiser FOR FIVE DAYS.
