THE LINCOLN STAR TUESDAY, TUNE 16. 1942 Ci ShertnOfi WHETHER it was unadulterated gall or an oversiza chunk of piffle on the part of this column, the fact remains that several months ago the charge was made here that Dallas, Texas, was a large smear of yellow on the e... map of Ameri - JJCUias Dtlll can gportdom. That Smear . The brjck: , .. bat which I Of Yellow tossed at the northern metro polis of the abode of the long - horns had ample justification as its background, inasmuch as it was cited here that Dallas, a city of the near 300,000 class, once actually turned out less than a thousand strong to a major football game the Cornhuskers of Nebraska vs. the Mustangs of Southern Methodist, the latter a Dallas institution. The response to that indictment came promptly, for an alleged Dallasite rushed to the phone to assure me that I was an excellent example of what it is to be a aoandso, the alias for which acarcely Is printable. The A. D. guy presumably imagined he had slapped me right down In my proper place, bat the heck of it hi that I still have nothing to retract and nothing to reconsider, IN BRIEF, I am sticking tight to my original claim that of all the large American cities, Dallas is by far the yellowest in affairs of sport. Now comes substantiation, in which latter instance I am referring to the recent declination of the northern Texas city to serve as host to a. the national vjrOtnam bteps tV u; f??!. In To Stage and field - ,. m champion Big Meet ships. The national meet was voted months ago to Dallas, which gave formal notice of acceptance. Then came Pearl Harbor and, pronto, Dallas began to shiver and, as is customary, display its streak of yellow. In other words, it backed away from its agreement with the A.A.U. Heads of the latter organization had the needed answer. They claimed the meet on behalf of New York City, converting the classic into a war relief benefit. Which means that Dapper Dan Ferris and his associates expect to clean up a 75 - thousand dollar pot for the common cause. And, by way of a super bill, the New Yorkers are assured of the presence of all the national collegiate champions who were crowned In Lincoln last week - end, plus such satellites as Warmer - dam. Steers and a full score and more of top - notchera In amateur circles. Wherefore, if the Dallas of today is only half as sour on Itself as It la yellow, its plight, Indeed, is most pathetic CALL it tragic or what you will, the collapse of Leslie Mac - Mitchell as a arade - A miler. which most assuredly was in evi dence last Saturday evening in Lincoln, scene of the national collegiate finals, must have come as V t)jj. shock to his Last S Pride followers in the SudriAnlxr eastern states. r m Mac Mitchell varoes nop had been run - ning all but rough - shod over all opponents both indoor and out, during 1 sensational career on eastern courses and New Yorkers had come to the point of accepting him as the one unbeatable miler of this or any other era in track athletics. In fact, the east's worship of the name MacMitchell attained the ridiculous when commentators of the Atlantic sector hailed him as the one runner capable of de livering the four - minute mile.

NEW YORK, June 16 (AP) The big noise of the past week's hitting fireworks came from the loud bats of pr" Les Fleming. Cleveland's kid first - baseman, and Ted Wil - M liams. the Red Sox swatter.

War Makes Inroads On Nebraska Coaches The war, making daily Inroads upon the numbers of Nebraska athletic coaches, has taken two more tutors. Rollie Riggins, head coach at Fair bury junior college, has en - isted in the army air corps. His ootball teams won five of eight games last year and his track team finished second in the state junior college meet. Fred Sukup, . Randolph coach, has been called into active duty n the army and has reported at Camp Edwards, Mass. His football and track teams won the Cedar county championships. He is a University of Nebraska graduate and hails from Verdigre. MORAN MORRIS, fornix Oklahoma Golden Gloves boxer who left Southeastern (Okla.) State college to join the Canadian R.A.F. as soon as he qualified for his pilot's license, has been listed as missing in action in the mass raid on Cologne. him the "Athlete of the Year award for 1941, this despite the existence of that super athlete, Cornelius Warmer dam, Califor nla's phenomenal pole vaulter. THE first Inkling that Mac - Mitchell had lost his speed and cunning on cinder tracks was in evidence on the Saturday prior to the national collegiates, on which date, while performing in a meet in New York City, he was neatly whipped by an obscure miler from Dartmouth. The time, 4:14 plus, wasn't mediocre, but certainly it was ... , no better than MacMltCnell falr . a Booked lo Then and . . . there, Gotham - Try Again ites began to ask: What's gone wrong with MacMitchell? In the light of re cent events, the interrogation must go unanswered, for the pride of New York U. was a dismal third to Bob Ginn of Nebraska and Leroy Weed of Southern California in the collegiate mile at thetsebraska U. oval. , As a matter of fact, he wasn't once in position to make himself a factor in the Lincoln competi tion and, at the finish, was 40 yards, possibly more, back of Ginn and Weed. Can MacMitchell hope to do better against the same pair in the A.A.U. championships, coming up next Saturday at New York? The answer won't be long delayed, but my guess ta that Ginn and Weed, barring an unforeseen mishap to either of that pair, wil be fighting it out with Gil Dodds another Nebraskan, down the home stretch, and MacMitchel will be trailing by a substantia! parcel of yards. Stick a pin in this prediction! Capital City Experts Tackle Chicago Course Tricky Traps and Greens Make Things Tough In Hale America. CHICAGO, June 16 (AP) Golfs elite section blew into town today, ready to take Ridgemoor golf course apart to see what makes it tough. With Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan. Henry Picard, Lawson Little, Craig Wood and the rest of the clan on the scene, the field of 107 pros and amateurs was almost complete for Thursday's tee - off in a 72 - hoIe medal play trip leading to the Hale America championship Sunday. After one peek at Ridgemoor's traps, tricky greens and woods, the boys wished they had come aooner. When they started talking with players who arrived yesterday to begin practice, they knew they should have come sooner for it's going to be hard to get acquainted with this course before the real test begins. Campaign of Silence. Johnny Dawson, the businessman golfer mentioned with Nelson, Wood, Hogan and Little as a first - five - finisher, posted a 70 and 72 over the par 30 - 38 - 72 route yesterday. He was the only fel - ow to give out his score in public. The others tipped their caddies not to tell. Ralph Guhldahl. still searching for his last game, Jug McSpaden and Sergeant Jim Turnesa. the P. G. A. runner - up who was a corporal then, were hush - hushing about 75s and 76s. Optimistic observers with noth - ng to do but guess about weather conditions believe the winning card will range from 275 to 277. more than 10 swats under par. The score amounts to as much wishful thinking as the weather. HUNT AND GINN HEAD EAST FOR A.AM. MEET Bobby Ginn, winner of the N. C. A. A. mile run last weekend, and Harold Hunt, Corn - husker vaulter, left Lincoln Tuesday morning for New New York City, where Saturday they will compete in the national A. A. U. track and field championships. The pair are the onlyHusk - ers represented at the meet. E. Weir, Nebraska track mentor, passed up the meet and is staying at home. Ball Players Tossed Loaded Bomb of TNT BALTIMORE, June 18 (AP) A negro fielder in an im promptu baseball game couldn't find the ball when it landed in some bushes, but he found some thing else, and tossed it to another player, It landed on its blunt end as the other player side - stepped. The players took the object to the police station. It was a two - and - a - half pound bomb, stamped by the U. S. army ordnance as containing T.N.T. Police began an investigation to determine how the solitary bomb had come to be lying there ' by some railroad tracks, and told the two gulping ball players the bomb was very much lethal "and it was plain lucky it landed on its tail instead of its nose. Cub Pitcher Persists Hanging It On Dodgers BY SID FEDER. XJEW YORK, June 16 (AP) The moral of this piece is: Never throw a bean ball at Claude Passeau. One of those slants, tossed by Hugh Casey two years ago, got Claude so steamed up he's been taking it out on the Dodgers ever eince and getting a lot of laughs out of it GETS BACK AT DODGERS. P " Claude was so peeved that afternoon of July 19, 1940, at Wrigley Field that he started to take on the whole Brooklyn ball club, bare - knuckles. He was punched around somewhat by Joe Gallagher, then a Dodger but now a soldier. These antics shocked National League Prexy Ford Frick so that he pinnea a $75 fine on the Chicago Cubs' ace elbower. . Eve since then, the man from Millsaps that's no reflection, it's Just Claude's college has been taking that "six bits' out a la Shylock, in the course of two years, He's knocked off Brooklyn L seven times and lost only two games. , EXTRA HOT RIGHT NOW. Right now, he's pretty warm for June or any other month. He hasn't been beaten since Mav 5. So last evening, Manager Jimmy Wilson asked him to so out there against the Brooklyns in a twilight game the first big league game ever to start in daylight and end under the arcs.

Mr. "Satchelfoot" Johnson Writes From Harlem To Assert That Brown Bomber Has Fair Deal Coming His Way. BY WALTER KIERNAV. WEW YORK, June 16 (INS) Mr. 'Satchelfoot" Johnson, a wraithy and wrathy resident of Harlem, wrote as follows to Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., today and to - wit: "Dear Mr. Supreme Treasurer: "What you going to do about Mistah Joe Louis? "Does you contemplate biting the hand that pulled $154, - 072.03 into the Army and Navy Relief Funds? Is you got plans to incarcerate the man who poured $83,246.94 into the same? "Cause if you is I is mad and, brother, I ain't alone! "I'm reading in the papers that Mistah Joe has got to fetch up $117,000 for income tax 'or else,' and I write you to inquire about that 'or else' part TOSS HIM IN THE CUNK? "What you going to do with Mistah Joe? You going to throw him in the clink? You going to take the fellow who said 'We are fighting on God's aide' and put him in the jailhouse if he don't produce that hundred and seventeen thousand dollars? "Mr. Supreme Treasurer I don't believe it "And I don't believe it for several reasons, mostly of which is the reason that if beer barons and politicians has gotten them little 'compromise settlements or gotten their taxes written off the book, Mr. Joe has got that break coming. JOE AIN'T NO BEER BARON. "This boy ain't no beer baron, Mr. Supreme Treasurer, and he ain't no greasy politician with votes under his money belt. He'i Just a big, clean, black boy a gentleman with dynamite in his fists and he's done more for his race than any black man since Booker T. Washington. "You want to know something, Mr. Supreme Treasurer? You wouldn't offend nobody if you wrote Mr. Joe's tax off the books. "On the other hand, getting tough with Mistah Joe is going to make a lot of people angry right through to the backbone and, besides, it won't get you nothing. CLAIMS SOLDIER'S RIGHTS. "A soldier's got until six months after he gets out of the army to pay his tax. Then if he ain't got it well there's nothing you can do about it is there Mr. Supreme Treasurer? No sir not a single thing. So long as he has filed his return and he says he ain't got any money and he hasn't you can't do nothing. "It would be smart business to wipe out that tax, Mr. Supreme Treasurer awful smart business. "Yours on God's aide, "J. 'SATCHELFOOT JOHNSON O Horsemen On Strike; Eastern Track Closes BOSTON, June 16 (INS) Suffolk Downs was closed today because of a strike of nearly 100 horsemen who seek larger minimum purses and improved living conditions in the barns. It was the first such strike in the history of New England horse racing and the first in the country since February 1941, when similar action closed the Santa Anita track in California for one day. Spokesmen for the strikers, informed President Charles F. Adams of the Eastern Racing association, operators of the track, they wanted a minimum purse of $1,200 at the track. They also asked for distribution over a day's card of extra money accruing from races which fail to fill and better living conditions for grooms and swipes. They said the increased cost of feed and upkeep made the rise necessary. Adams announced he could not fulfill the demands and said the average purse at Suffolk had been increased yearly since the opening of the track. In addition, he said, operating expenses have increased 20 per cent shrugged, "why thay're my cousins." What he did to the league lead - era mde the relationship seem even closer than that. He served up a five - hitter and he didnt let a Dodger get past second. In fact, only two got as far as that PALS HELP WITH HITS And, with the help of some fait country clouting by Lou Novi - koff, Bill Nicholson and James (Double - X) Foxx, he waltzed home with a 6 - 0 decision It was his eighth straight vic tory and made him the first big league twirler to hit the 10 game - winner bull'seye thise year. The triumph moved th e Cubs back into fifth place, and dropped the Pittsburgh Pirates into sixth because the Bucs lost the only other game on the big league schedule yesterday. This was a 6 - 2 setback pinned on them by the New York Giants. - 4COWTH STMD AMERICAN LEAGUE.
