SUNDAY, JUNE 11. 1944 NEVADA STATE JOURNAL. RENO, NEVADA PAGE S-3 r-" V \ Illini Team Wins National Collegiate Track TitL Heralded Sprint Duel Fizzles as One Disqualified Young Beat* Conwcll By 10 Yards in Furlong By BOB MEYER United Press StaH Correspondent MILWAUKEE, Wis,, June 10. --The heralded rivalry race between the nation's outstanding sprinters, Claude "Buddy" Young, of Illinois and Ed Conwell of New York University, failed to materialize tonight when Conwell was disqualified for two false starts, and Young went on to Pace Illinois to its third national collegiate track championship in 23 years. Trojans Absent Illinois piled 79 points to capture the 23rd running of the historic track and field carnival, taking over the crown that Southern California held for nine straight years only to forego its defense of the title this year becausi; of travel restrictions. The Illini triumph returned the NCA crown to the midwest for the first time since Indiana won in 1932. The much-publicized attempt of the stubby Mr. Young, Negro freshman sensation, to become the first man to win four NCAA events since Jesse Owens did it in 1933 failed in two respects: (1) Young was defeated in the broad jump by Ralph Tyler of Ohio State, who leaped 23 feet 4% Inches, and (2) Young scratched in the low hurdles when it was obvious that Illinois would win anyway. Fire by Five Nevertheless the Mr. Five by Five from Chicago piled up 28 of Illinois' 79 points taking firsts in the 100-yard and 220-yard dash ai.-a second in the broad jump, based on the NCAA scoring of 10 points for first place and eight for second. In addition, he led Conwell to the tape by ten yards in the 220 dash. Runner-up to Illinois was Notre Dame, with a 19-man squad that soread its overall strength to 43 points. Michigan, largely upon the work of its famous Hume twins, finished third with 40 points. The also-rans were: Ohio State, 23; Northwestern, Purdue and Morgan State, 20; Marquette, 19; New York U., and Missouri, 18; Wisconsin and Miami, 16; Oberlin, 15; Utah, 14; Minesota, 12; Colorado and Western Michigan, 10; Indiana, Boston College and Fresno State, 8; Iowa State, 5; Michigan State, 4; and Illinois, Tech and Central Michigan, 1. if. Jade Boy Annexes Morrison Handicap SAN MATEO, Calif., June 10. (U.R)--The featured Hayward Morrison handicap for $5,000 at one mile and one-sixteeth was won by Mrs. Mabel Cooper's Jade Boy today, a half length ahead of Valdina Andire with Gold Call third. With Jockey Ralph Neves aboard, Jade Boy trailed the field as Okana took the lead at the start. Jade Boy ran last to the stretch and then passed every horse in the field to win in the Happy Stan Hack Doesn't Do Anything by Halves in A Widely-Assorted Career NEW YORK, June 10. ttl.R--Busy Stan Hack, who at a s s o r t e d stretches in his career has been a naviator, rancher, amateur detective, dog fancier, and bank clerk, has found time to return to third base for the crestfallen Chicago Cubs, which should give them their best chance yet to vacate the National League cellar. Happy Hack, who does nothing by halves, hasn't any equal among the motley lot., of third basemen patrolling the beat in the majors today, and when he gets his heart and soul into winning games for the Cubs, he may spark the whole team into a victory drive. The big, grinning guy, who often is caught with a plug of tobacco slow time for the ds 1:45. Total handle as $709,841. Joey Dolan TKO's Lindell in Four PORTLAND, Ore., June 10. (U.R) --Portland's navy-bound lightweight assassin Joey Dolan, practically butchered Jimmy Lidell, Los Angeles negro, in a scheduled ten- round bout here last night which Referee Packy McFarland wisely stopped in the fourth round awarding the fight to the Albina shipyard worker via the T.K.O. route. Dolan, entering the ring at 127% pounds, was, a much stronger boy than when he was fighting at a lighter weight. The 135 pound Liddell, picked to administer a sleeping pill to Irish Joey, ran into two right hand shots to the jaw followed by a. looping left hook which started the carnage. Getting the range Dolan stormed in dumping his dusky rival on the deck twice for five counts. A right hook draped Liddell over the ropes, and the leg weary Negro stood helplessly with his hands at his sides. He was decked for a four count a second later at which juncture Referee McFarland stopped the unequal contest. In the preliminaries Billy McCann, 149, Seattle, decisioned Norman Finch, Vancouver; Roy Dunn, 160, knocked out Teddy Newsome, 164, Gary, Ind., and Pete Peter- Boone, Seattle, 142, in three rounds. 56th AnnualAAU Track Meet Set NEW YORK, June 10. (U.R--A sterling field of track and field stars, including 12 defending champions and teams and individuals from 33 different states was assured tonight for the 56th annual American track and field meet next Saturday and Sunday, June 17 and 18. Officials of the sponsoring amateur athletic union said the advance list of stars was remarkable in view of wartime manpower conditions which makes it impossible for numerous other competitors to defend their laurels. . More than 85 per cent of the big entry list will be provided by the various branches of the armed forces, including men on furlough and teams from navy and marine V-12 and V-5 colleges. and an out-size cigar in his month at the same time, has been the team's number one "clutch hitter" for years and his fielding is both steady and spectacular. Affairs In Shape Hack did not report to the Cubs this spring for the first tune since he joined them 11 years ago, because of the manpower shortage on his ranch at Pendleton, Ore. Recently, however, he got his affairs in shape and decided to return to the team. The 35-year-old left handed hitter, probably without an equal with men on bases, has batted in 529 runs during his major league tenure and has a lifetime average of .303. He slumped to .289 last season, but with major league pitching as sub-standard as it is now, he is likely to step up that pace considerably. It was back in 1931 that Hack decided to take a chance on baseball as a career because his job as a Sacramento, Calif., bank clerk bored him. He took.his two-week vacation during the time the Sacramento Coast League team was in spring training and promptly got a job. In his first season he played 164 games at third base and had a lusty batting average of .352. He moved to Chicago the following year and aside from a short stretch at Albany in the International League in 1933, has remained with the Cubs throughout. Extra-Currlcular His extra-curricular activities used to bother the dickens out of the Cub management. A licensed pilot, he flew his own plane until 1932, when he cracked up in a flight on the coast, luckily escaping injury. The Cub management extracted a promise from him not to fly again and he devoted his energies to sleuthing. Two days before the 1932 world series, Hack was riding in a police squad car. It met with an accident, and he injured several ribs. The Cub management never knew until after the series was over that Hack had played with the injured ribs, although he did not see much action. Late in the 1937 pennant race, when the Cubs were in the thick of the fight, Hack joined police in a search for a burglar and was ready to shoot it out with the trespasser--with his own guns. Hack, now more settled in his ways, raises Scottie dogs and plays tennis for diversion. And the Cubs will find plenty to keep even as busy a gent as he is occupied-from now on. *- · Ex-Bear Athlete Missing in Action SANTA CRUZ, Cal., June 10.-(UP)--First Lt. Max Dowden, former University of California athlete, has been reported missing in action over Germany, according to word received here by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Homer L. Dowden, Lieutenant Dowden, who is in the U. S. army air forces, was on detached service with the Royal Canadian Air Force as » bomber pilot when reported missing. He had a pilot officers commission in the RCAF. Four Former Football Stars, Led by J urn pin' Joe Savoldi Are Throwing Blocks, Tackles on Italian Racketeers Now ALLIED FORCE ADVANCE PRESS HEADQUARTERS, Italy, June 12. (U.R)--Four former football stars are playing on the same team here today--throwing blocks and tackles on Italian criminals and racketeers as member of the military police. Best known member of the quartet is "Jumpin 1 Joe" Savoldi, one-time Not.-e Dame Battering Ram. Savoldi,, who turned wrestler after his football career, is a special investigator in the black market division and likes it so well he intends to remain in police work after the war. "The others are Maj. Mike Mikulak, former Oregon and Chicago Cardinal back; Maj. Ralph Tolve. an all-southern at Alabama, and Lt. Bob Di Natale of Boston College. Working with them is Angust McCabe, who used to do a bit of footballing for Columbia back in 1916. They decreased the Naples traf- tic accident rate by 85 per cent and started a criminal investigation section that played havoc with counterfeit rings and black market gangs. Their work has been so effective- that black market flour, which once sold for 51,000 a truckload, has risen to j| FRIED CHICKEN I * * * I Wine House Cale |H 16 East Commercial Ron H All Grain Fed ' : =| Colored Fryers i W OPEN DA? AND NIGHT over $3,000, which means that thefts of American supplies has been made a risky business. "Savoldi makes every bit as good a detective as he did a football player," Mikulak said. "He had never done any police work before going to Africa in June of last year yet he has cracked some of our toughest black market cases." Joe said it has taught him several things." "I like working with these G. I. cops because every one of them is a good clean, rugged American boy," he said. "Althought we don't have much free time I'm teaching them judo and hope we can get. wrestling organized as part of their regular training. I like football and wrestling but I'd rather keep them for pleasure and make my living at something else. That's why I'm thinking of following poli.ce work after the war." McCabe plans to go back to his real estate business and Mikulak plans to return to coaching because "I guess just being around a football field gets into your blood."

JOHNS Central Press Sports Editor Pitching wins pennants and 20- game winners are more or less prerequisites. The Detroit Tigers, now edging toward the top of the American League standings, appear to have pitching and--two 20-game winners in Hal Newhouser and Dizzy Trout. Between them, Lefty Hal and Righthander Dizzy won 14 games by June 1. Newhouser's contribution to that total was eight victories, which is all he could win last season in 38 games. Trout, a 20-game winner last year, appears to be on his way to another banner season and if Newhouser continues his present pace you'll be seeing the Tigers back in the world series picture they last appeared in after the 1940 season. From Beaumont Both Newhouser and Trout are products of the Tigers' farm at Beaumont in the Texas League. Trout, who was something of a colorful character when he burst into the majors, came up first, having pitched his last minor league ball in the 1938 season. Newhouser came up from Beaumont the'next season, Newhouser, bothered with wildness earlier in his career, has settled down and become one of the Tiger aces. He has a remarkably fast ball and struck out 144 batters last season, At the same time he walked more batters, 111, than any other flinger in the league. Trout began his career as an 18-year-old youth. He hit the minors with Terre Haute and then moved up to AA bal! with Indianapolis. Toledo was his next stop and then he was sent to the Tigers' Beaumont farm. Dizzy Trout At Beaumont, Trout was the pitching star of the league, winning 22 against only six losses in 1938. That brought him to the Motor City and he has stayed on ever since. At first he was used sparingly, pitching only in relief roles. His record was poor until last season when he won his 20 games. Newhouser, a native of Detroit, began his career with Alexandria in the Evangeline league in 1939. His fire ball was noticeable even at the start and he fanned 107 batters in 96 innings pitched. One season at Beaumont and he was brought up by the Tigers although he had no minor league record to marvel at. For the past three seasons he has struck out at least 100 or more batters. Kis best season with the Tigers was in 1940 when he won nine and lost nine. Pacific Coast Conference Upheaval Forecast When Spring Meeting Held PORTLAND, Ore., June 10. (U.R) There will be an upheaval when the the spring' meeting of the Pacific Coast Inter-Collegiate Conference goes into session next week at Hood River, Ore., informed sources indicated today. The report is out that the graduate managers, irked at the final authority traditionally held by the faculty representatives, may seek to gain control, even though schedule making and sports competition is under wraps because of the war. Some army athletic heads are expected to attend the three-day meeting, beginning Monday, in an effort to book football games with those teams still having squads for next fall. A tentative conference schedule may be mapped out, although only Washington plans a team in the northern division. Basketball schedules probably will be worked out, along with baseball, but track is doubtful. Seevral coaches have dropped out of the conference for the duration, complicating the schedule making. Louis Is 100 to 1 Shot to Lose Title First Time He Defends It After War CAMDEN, N. J., June 10. (U.R) Commander Jack Dempsey, U. S. coast guard, believes that Joe Louis, the heavyweight champion, will be a 100 to 1 shot to lose his title the first time he defends it after the war. "Sgt. Joe Louis is a great fighter, and make no mistake about that," the former heavyweight titlist declared, "but the longer he is in the service the more it's going to take him to get back in fighting trim." Dempsey came here yesterday to address a war bond rally at the RCA-Victor plant. He said the war takes too much out of an athlete to expect him to be in the same condition as when he left competitive sports. "It's just like an old-time fighter trying to make a comeback after he has been out of the ring a few years. It can't be done, and I know what I'm talking about." Dempsey added, however, that when the war is over the country will have more and better fighting prospects. "I've been turning out thousands Of them at the Manhattan Beach coast guard station since I went to work there," he declared. Clay Court Meet To Open Monday DETROIT, June 10. (U.R)--Fran- cisco (Pancho) Segura, of Ecuador, third ranking tennis player in the nation and seeded No. 1 in the national clay courts championships opening Monday at the Detroit tennis club, drew a bye in the first round as news was received today that Lieut. Seymour Greenburg; Chicago, 1943 champion, will not defend his crown. The colorful Ecuadorean who uses both hands to drive a terrifically hard forehand will be playing here for the first time. In 41 recognized matches last year, he won 38 and lost three--including one--to Greenburg in the Southhampton round robin tournament last August. The eight seeded players in the men's singles were: Segura; William Talbert, Cincinnati; Rex Norris, Landing; Ray Gibson, Detroit; Hobart Wrobbe!, Detroit; Hubert Manire, Detroit; Richard Warner, University of Utah; Robert Lewis, University of Utah.

Bob Chambers, sensational yoting Los Gatos high school runner, featured the afternoon program with a world interscholastic record- equalling performance in the prep half mile. Meeting stiff opposition from a select field, Chambers turned the 880-yard distance in 1:54.4 to tie the world prep mark set by Ross Bush of Dallas, Tex.
