-r -7). J ,1 1 1 y ClAGE EIGHT THE SHAMOKIN DISPATCH. SHAMOKIN', TA., FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 19, 1932 Chicago Looms As Cubs Win Another Marathon Contest To Keen In Front Guy Bush Credited With Second Extra-Inning Tilt in Two Days Boston Loses in Fifteen Innings BY ITS CONKI.1V International News Service Sports Writer NEW YORK. Aug. 19 i INS) A team that won! be beaten can't be beaten, which is why the Chicago Cubs locked like red-hot favorites today to win the National League pennant. The league-leading Bruin? have emerged with flying colors from two leng. gruelling, extra-inning games against Ba-ston with class, gamencss and 1 Charley i Grimm tCQi determination stamped upon them unmistakably. Unless the unprecedented strain of battling through two consecutive games that last a total of 34 innings makes them crack, their home stand against the invadint' eastern clubs should continue to be a profitable 011P. Their advantage over Pittsburgh and Brcoklyn 2 1-2 and 3 games respectively is bigger than It locks on paper. The Cubs have lost three fewer games than Pittsburgh and six less than Brooklyn, and it is the "games lost" column that counts at thA pay-off. By a remarkable coincidence. Sheriff Guy Bush was credited with both of Chicago's wins over Eoston in the two marathons, and in each instance he pitched only one inning, the last the 19th on Wednesday and the 15th yesterday. After playing errorless ball Wednesday, the braves made six boots yesterday and one of them was costly. After English walked io open' the 15th, Spohrer threw C.y-ler's sacrifice Into right field, lish scampering to third and scoring the winning run cn Hoss Steph enson's single. It was the firs; run i scored since the ninth inning, when the Braves tied the score. Eoth Boston teams seem to have a penchant for extra-inning games. The Red Sox came from behind three times yesterday to nose out the Browns, 7 to 6, in another 15-inning marathon. Levy of the Brcwns and McManus of the Sox each hi; homers in the eleventh and each club scored three runs in the 14:h. In the 15th Stumf tripled and s:ored the winning run on a fiy. The Phillies got back into the National League pennant race and practically knocked St. Louis out of it by trimming the Cares twicr, 10 to 4 and 9 to 4. Hansen and Jumbo Elliott were the winning hurlers. Waite Hoyt continued his comeback with the Giants by beating the Reds, 7 to 3. Other teams were Idle. n EXCELSIOR TO 3 -1 VICTORY Also Gets Two Hits Out of Three Trips to Plate Gordon Loses When Marsh Yields Only Five Hits Excelsior's ball club clicked smoothly yesterday when it defeated Gordon. 3-1. Backing up Marsh's pitching with seven timely hits, the Excelsior outfit managed to assume an early lead which they held during the eBtire battle. Marsh, besides hurling a fine game, came through with two hits and scored one run. Shutt had :wo hits for Gordon. Gcrdon was held to fr. hits. The score: EXCELSIOR AB F.

New Records Scored At Post-Olympic Contests Held At Soldiers Field Crowd of 25,000 Disappointed When Finland Drops Out of Distance Race Competing Against Ralph Hill CHICAGO, Aug ID (INS)-Two new records, three performances equalling universal marks, one equalling an Olympic criterion and one big disappointment. That today was the fruit of the energies exerted by athletes of 15 nations in th3 international post- olympic games at Soldier Field last night. The two new records belonged to two girls. The one big dii-appoint-ment belonged to the 25.030 spectators who beheld the contests. The redoubtable Stella Walsh, competing for Holland although Cleveland is her home town, estab lished a new women's mark of 24.1 seconds in the 200-meter dash, shav ing six-tenths of a second off the old record. Stellr.'s sturdy Polish team-mate, Jadwiga Wajsowna, tossed the discus ; 137 feet, 3''4 inches for the second I new world record of the interna tional meet. In this achievement Miss Wajsowna turned back none other than Mildred "Babe" Didrick-son, Texas "one-gal team", whose best effort with the dish sent it sailing 133 feet, 10 inches which also surpassed the existing women's mark. The big disappointment enveloped the grandstands when Lauri Leht.i-nen. Finland's Olympic distance champion, dropped out of the 5000 1 meter race with 8'2 laps left to go. A 'eg injury forced the illustrious ' Finn to quit, thus dulling the edge of the meet's most anxiously anticipated event. It was to have been a renewal of the rivalry between Leht-inen and Ralph Hill, Oregon runner. In the Olympad at Los Angeles Lehtinen defeated Hill by inches and a dispute arose over the assertion that the Finn blocsed the American. In last night's grind Hill went on to the finish, but was unable to overtake Jan Kusocinski, Poland's 10. COO meter Olympic champion, who broke the tape ten feet ahead of the Oregcnian. In the point score the United States, duplicating its Olympiad ac complishment, o v ers h a d o we d vals with a total of 108 as against 34 'or Poland in second place and 25 for Germany in third. Italy amas-ed 16 points. Finland 13. Canada 13. Haiti. 5. Sweden 5 a nl Greece 2 The remaining na tions- failed 'o score.

This game marked the Panthers first win in nine starts. Maurers scored threa runs in the first inning1 to give the Overlook boys a scare, and then tw) in the third inning to gain a seemingly I unapproachable lead. Balchunas had Over.ooi; under his control un- til the last haif of the third when two runs seered. Then came the big fourth innin:; v. hen the Panthers tallied nine times, knocking Balchunas out of the box and continuing their assault on Weimei, who relieved him. The Panthers scored five in the fifth and one in the sixth, when Klutz, loppy catcher of the Fanthers, mae'e a personal tour of the bases on a hit to right field. Cherry relieved Sweet, starting pitcher, in the fourth inning and held his opponents at bay. Klutz and I.ippiatt eacn collected three hits for the winners, the former scoring four times. Klutz had a single, triple and home run while Lippiatt had three singles. Johns, Kline and Roughton each got two hits for the losers, Kline getting a triple and Rcrghton a double. This evening the strong Elysburg team will play the Panthers at Overlook in a Shamokin Valley League game. The contest is scheduled for 5:30. Tomorrow evening at Overlook.

All vacant lots and pastures around the park were filled with autcs. Many farmers and their families attended the picnic from this county. There re displays of autos, stoves, electric washers, refrigerators and other household appliances that caught the fancy of the modern tiller of the soil. SCHOLASTICS TO STAGE PRACTICE MONDAY EVENING 'Gish' Klembara Will Again Coach Maroon and White Gridmen Building Up a Strong Schedule On Monday afternoon at 4:30 Coach Gish Klembara will sound the gong for the first class in football to which call fully thirty or more candidates will respond for membership m a team known as the Scholastics. The Lincoln school yard on Market street will be the scene of the first grilling, at which place such stars as Culton, Paczkoskie, Graves, Sterner, Miller, Fitzpatrick, Kase-man. Kearney, Brubaker, Swinehart and Strausser. along with ethers who might submit themselves to an audition for Coach Klembara wished to announce that this year no one will be barred for tryout on the team. However the Maroon and White coach must contend with the loss of Venn, Bixler and Barke, who will enter college this vear. Therefore, berths that were -.filled by the departing men will be opened to ca-pacitation. It was learned that Venn and Bixler will matriculate at Maryland University, while Baj;ke. will return to St. Bonaventure College. That vacates a position of - end, tackle and half back. Nevertheless Hiere will be someone on hand to fill the berths for footballers are far and wide. A hefty line is available out of the above mentioned crew, while the backfleld, excepting Venn, will be replenished with that same old punch and brawn that swept many a team off its feet in nrcvious vear'? Coach Klembara is contemplating tne I ui- uMtvjjt: in uie winner system which he finds to be excellent in advice that makes lines charge fur- iously and backfields sprint decep lively. The system is a wonder, for many teams invading the local camp last year and other years can vouch very well for the terrific charging and plimgins?. The Sehola.-.tics have a great deal to thank the Shamokin and regional fans for and are hoping that the same support and spirit will prevail this season. The management at the present time is communicating with highly touted professional t;-ams, which will make its appearance here this autumn. Preparations are also being made for an endeavor to get a field whereby all the accommodations will be afforded the fans who will see t.he same old bunch of Scholastics in the field fighting for the never-disappearing prestige. Homeseekers who are claiming nearly 19 square miles in Cotabato Province in the Philippines are threatened with expulsion, following a complaint filed By an influential Moro of Balatican.

He's up with the dawn and in bed with the dark, and he sits with his memories, practically forgotten. That chicken farmer of the Northwest in Amos Rusic, once king of pitchers. When Amos was with the Giants back in 1890 he set a record with 345 strikeouts. Nowadays our speedball pitchers do not approach the 300 mark, but it was nothing for Amos to fan at least 300 men through a season. The Old, Guard still talks about Rusie and compares his speed with that of Waiter Joh.-.i-ion und Lefty Grove. For many years Rusie was an assistant superintendent at the Polo Grounds in New York. Eut about three years ago he got a hsnkin-iiy; to return to the soil, whenc; ho haa come to jck: the Giants c: the long ao. John J.

Down in his Philadelphia training quarters, the chubby Sears, who demonstrated with his defeat of Thomas that his improved boxing has not inju ed hi - terrific hitting, is vorking with an aim to stopping the Luzerne fighter. Sears was beaten once before by Herman, and not only does he plan to reverse the result of that bout but he wants to impress on the region that he is Schuylkill county's best fistic bet and should be rated head and shoulders above all the rest. It was Sears' master boxing, coupled with h's terrific hitting, that stave him his victory over Thomas, and they arc his main selling points for Tuesday's bout. Against the colored fighter, Wally was a combination of Jim Corbett and Jack Demp- sey in one. He showed a beautiful left hand and he combined a head weaving followed by short hooks of the Dcmpscy brand that paved the way to his defeatirg Thomas. All Wally did that night was out-box, out-smart and out-maneuver Thomas, slow him down to a walk and then at the right time, flash across the knockout punches. No man can do more. Sears and Herman head a combination of five fast fights moulded into another fine Lakewood attraction. Pete Suskey and Johnny Peppe tangle in the semi, and in the main prelim, the one and only Iron Mike Kushwara meets Joe Mandarino, fighting Marine of Portsmouth, Va. Jackie Bender and Frankie Damian meet in a four rounder and Phil Smith opens the show with Benny Whalen. MAX SCHMELING TO SAIL FOR GERMANY XE".V YORK.

WALSH International News Service Sports Writer NEW YO!tK, Aug. 19 (INS) Conscious of current whispers to the effect that, barring an occasional contest of skill with some very reliable and, in fact, praiseworthy bum, Jack Sharkey plans to keep the heavyweight championship practically in perpetuity, the Madison Square Garden corporation today asked the man to declare the honesty of his intentions toward the Schmel-ing-Walker winner. The Madison Square Garden corporation, in fact, asked the man about this same three days ago, inditing a full-rate telegram in its haste to still those wagging tongues. As yet, however, he seems to have vouchsafed no reply but everybody around the Garden is confident that this is on the way and undoubtedly it will arrive in the course of time. So will the Harvard-Yale boat race. Ordinarily, of course, the Garden would not wish to be peremptory with the heavyweight champion. But in this case Schmeling and Walker have just signed for a championship elimination contest in September, and somehow there is something very dispiriting in the spectacle of two men fighting for the right to fight a man who may not wish them to do so. Besides, the Garden is a little distressed about the backstairs gossips who are saying unkind things, some of them having been at no slight pains to state that the heavyweight championship of the work", is a man who net only will not fight very often again, bi.t can not. Grid Warriors On Wash-Jeff Eleven Are Keeping "Fit" Outstanding Candidates for Varsity Football Team Doing Most Anything in Line of Employment WASHINGTON, Pa., Aug. 19 i (INS) With scores of their class mates bewailing the depression and a notable lack of summer employment, practically the entire varsity gridiron squad of Washington and Jefferson College has made good in obtaining jobs to keep "in the pink." Warned by Coach Leroy P. "Hank" Day to return for Fall practice in good condition, members of the W. and J. squad have ignored the signs of the times and at present are performing jobs that vary i n muscle-building propensities from post-hole digging to magazine idling. Pittsburgh claims four of the tar athletes, with Vincent Mas- sock, guard, running the tumble bug at Kennywocd park, an amusement center; Carl Bubenheim, another husky guard, saving lives at a steel city pool, and Al Rometo and John Popow hustling from door to door in the collegiate magazine scrambh Then there's big 200-pound Charlie Armstrong, down in Virginia, exploring the earth with a post-hole pick for a southern telegraph company, and being paid in cash and hardening muscles for his labor. Dick Dalrymple at Cheste, W. Va., and big Don Rhodes at Atlantic City, N. J., are two others of the squad working as life guards. Included in the truck drivers' category are Burkhart, center, and Kozelko, haliback. while Gerhart Zagraym, speedy ball carrier, and his running mate, Red Rittersbaugh, are toting ice in Canton, O. Bert Gray, center, is dressing tools on an oil well near here. El-wood Headley, veteran end, is helping a brother in photography. Johnny Furjanic, another pivot, is working with the highway depart ment. And Phil Port snappy quarterback, is working on a steamship, now homeward bound from South America. Eddie Myers, guard, is guarding his father's tool kit and helping him in the plumbing business. Al Dcmedowitz, another of the President's "hopefuls" for the coming season, is working out daily in a Brooklyn. N. Y.. gymnasium. King and Malcolm, backs, both hurt in the Spring session of training, are recovering from knee injuries, while Cook. John Fife and Bob Fife are keeping in trim by playing with local baseball nines. EDGEWOOD A. C. TIES PAXINOS The Edgewood A. C. earned a 6-6 deadlock with the Paxinos A. C. in a recent struggle played at Paxinos. Paxinos outhit its foe by 10-7 but failed to bunch the bingles. Edgewood trailed the Paxinos nine until ninth frame when they tallied three runs to knot the count. Two more innings were piavea Deiore darkness halted the game. OLYMriC WINNER TO RETIRE PHILADELPHIA. Aug. 19 TXS' One of the winners in the 10th Olvmpiad at Los Angeles less than a fortnight ago. W. E. Garrett Gil-more, veteran Schuylkill Oarsman, has announced h s retirement from further active competition. Paired with Kfn Mvers. G.lmore J wen the doubles ;:-ll:r.g title in the IO. mp.ci Sportitorials Views, Slants, Reflections and Wallops FERRELL JINXED Wesley Ferrell, Cleveland's star moundsman, can beat Connie Mack's Athletics anytime that is, except when he is opposed by one Lefty Grove. Five times this season the Indian right-hander has tried to beat the Philadelphia team with Grove on the mound but in each instance he was turned back with defeat. Ever since the two pitchers met in battle last summer Lefty 1: held the upper hand. For ma; weeks fans awaited the appearant of the two stars together ast year and towards the end of the season they finally worked in the same game. It was a thrilling battle but Connie Mack's slender southpaw nosed out a win and has held the jinx sign over the Indian hurler since. Four times this Reason Grove and Ferrell made ready for battle against each other and each time the score was close. But two days ago Ferrell attempted to stage a comeback and he was decisively trimmed. He was knocked from the box and Grove allowed the Tribe only four blows and was credited with an 11-0 victory. If any one hurler in the American League has the Indian sign on Lefty Grove it is Vernon "Goofy" Gomez ,of the league-leading New York Yankees. Gomez worked against Grove twice this season and came out ahead both times. IIIXKLE TURN'S PRO Clark Hinkle, Bucknell University's All-Eastern fullback, will this fall attempt to break his way into the greatest team that has ever been assembled in football colleei or pro the Green Bay Packers. The big curley-headed star ox thrte Bison flevens will leave the first week in September to join the Packers, thrice champions of the National Pro League, despite previous reports that he would play somewhere here in the East. Hinkle should make good in pro football, much as he did the college game. He is not the fragile type of ball carrier, who gets hurt easily when the going gets rough, and he can take it. Anyone who has seen him burn down the first base line on the baseball diamond, his powerful legs pounding like pistons, will never doubt his speed, and that's the combination that wins in the pro game jwwer and speed. Wally Diehl, of Mount Carmel. la another Bucknell fullback who entered pro ranks after leaving college. Diehl gained a big rep by performing with the Frankford Yellow Jackets. BOWMAN A PLUGGER! Tiger Al Bowman, Shamokin' popular ring warrior, will don his fighting togs this evening at Shenandoah in Hobb's new arena. A., will oppose a tough hombre in S Sailor Matty, Shenandoah, in the" windup number. Bowman is a willing; and ready fighter but he just doesn't seem to get the breaks.
