FRIDAY fcVfiNING, JUNE 6, 1936. THfi PAMPA DAILY NfcWS, Painpa, Texas PAGE SEVJEtt BUCKING HORSES AND STEERS, RILED BY DUSTY WIND, BECOME VICIOUS o— JIMMIE NESBITT AND RAMSEYS AGAIN PERFORM Despite a strong southeast wind which blew dirt across the arena and into the grandstand, nearly j.OOb rodeo fans witnessed the second Centennial program yesterday afternoon at Fairground park. .Once more the trick riders, trick ropers and Jlmmlc Nesbitt and his trained mule, Will Rogers, pleased the large crowd. Mrs. Jimmie Nes- b!tt, staged her famous "under" trick crawling beneath the belly of her galloping horse. Despite the wind, the Ramsey family, two sons and three daughters, the boys trick riders and ropers and the girls trick ropers, and Miss Opal Wood, trick rider and roper, performed. Calf ropers ran into trouble in the wind which tossed their ropes wide of the mark many times. Jim Snively's mark or 16 2-5 seconds of the previous day stood and he took first money. Jess Goodspeed's second time was also good but Clyde Burke of Comanche, Okla., replaced Buck Goodspeed for third rnoqey. yfednesday's mark in the bulldogging was not bettered yesterday arid Shorty Creed walked off with the money. Jimmie Olsen, Pampa boy, stepped Into second money yesterday in the steer riding contest which was won by Bill Van Vactor Of Carter, Okla. Vic Swarts again came up with the bronc riding prize. Jytany spills but no "chills" were registered during yesterday's battles between man and beast. The bucking, horses were even meaner than the previous day and more riders were thrown. The steers also seemed. to resent the strong wind. Winners were: ,§te,er riding— Bill Van Vactor, Career, Okla.; Jimmie Olsen, Pampa; Whitey Stewart, Anadarko, Okla. fitonc riding — Vic Swartz, Byers, Texas; Milt Mpe, Perry, Okla.; Slatz Jacobs, Merriman, Neb.

Steel Workers Welded Into One Industrial Union Mickey Cochrane Is Out Of Lineup With Nerve Ailment Cards Lose 4-3 Tilt To Dodgers But Still Lead BY SID FEDER, Associated Press Sports Writer. One of the most persistent injury "jinxes" to dog any one club in years, is doing its best to count the Detroit Tigers out of the pennant chase. A series of tough breaks, beginning with the loss of the star Tiger hitter. Hank Greenberg, and following up with the removal of the number one pitcher. Schoolboy Rowe, and the outfield slugger, Al Simmons, all laid up for repairs, was climaxed yesterday by an illness which took Manager Mickey Cochrane out of the lineup, suffering from a nerve ailment. His illness struck him suddenly, shortly after he had smashed out a homer with the bases loacled-to spark the Tigers to an 18-9 victory over the Athletics. The win gave the Tigers undisputed possession of fourth place in the American league race, for the Washington Senators, with whom they had been deadlocked, lost their apparent stranglehold on the St. Louis Browns and fell 6-2 In the series finale. In the rest of the American league, the Boston Red Sox made it three straight over the Cleveland Indians, 4-3, as Lefty Grove chalked up his eighth win of the season, and the Chicago White Sox handed the New York Yankees their most lop-sided walloping of the campaign to date. 16-3. Over in the National league, the St. Louis Cardinals lost 4-3 to the Brooklyn Dodgers, but maintained their three-game league lead as the second place New York Giants were trimmed by Lon Warncke and the Chicago Cubs, 8-5, despite two home runs by Mel Ott. Cy Blanton finally rounded into some measure of his 1935 hurling form and pitched the Pirates to a 7-5 win over the Boston Bees, although he failed to last the route, while the Reds sank the Phillies deeper into the cellar with a 5-3 trouncing. -SPORT- SLANTS B v ALAN GOULD June 5. «p>- Plasping- hands over a newly drawn pact, John TJ. Lewis and steel urjion leaders (h'ove ahead tod.ay in an attempt t° form 500,000 steel workers into pne big industrial union. Reading the terms of the bargain which kewis struck with the Amalgamated Asspcia,tiori of Iron, Steel and Tin Vypvkers last night, organized, tabor waited to see what craft unionist foes of Lewis within the A. P. 6. L. would do about it. By signing the pact the steel union Readers' chose to go alpng with Lewis rather .than the craft faction. ^ .rnpnth.s-QJd quarrel between the L.ewis;g,rdup and the craft unionists, whp disagree with his m.e(;hpds for prganizing. steel, has been threatening tp' 5pHt the federation. Many p.b's£rvers believe that the shpwdown Is imminent, that the next moves Will, tell whether the great A. F. of Jfi. jchism will in fact occur. After long hesitation, the Amalgamated <jeoid,ed to gp over fo the camp ^epr.esen.ted by Lewis' power- ^1'comjnittee for industrial organi- sation, a c.ajn|) in whjPh pine p.c,wer- fjjj unions are arrnved. includhv . oioUUng workers. Tucked away in the annals of American sport are numerous stories of famous athletes of yester- i day and today who achieved fame despite early handicaps of physical weakness or serious accidents. Conspicuous members of this "spinach cult" of comebackers are Glenn Cunningham, Olympic track star; Bitsy Grant, the bantam member of the American Davis cup team; Bill Walker, St. Louis Cardinals' pitcher; Charles Atlas, the world's most perfectly developed man; Bobby Jones, erstwhile emperor of golf; Arnelte Kellerman and Johnny Weissmuller, famed swimmers; George Malison, outstanding candidate for the Olympic gymnastic team, and many more. From discouraging getaways as weaklings and ambulance cargo, these modern Hercules and Miner- vas have bounced back to fame, coaxing their stamina and rigging their unprepossessing frames with steel-spring muscles. Glenn Cunningham, the Kansas flier, one of this country's greatest distance runners, was badly burned by the explosion of a rural SRhopl stove when he was eight years old. His older brother died of burns received in the same explosion, but Glenn began to rebuild himself physically while attending high school in his home town of Elkhart, Kan. He finally fashioned a body as hard as nails and a powerful pair of legs on which he made a speedy ascent to cinder-path fame. In 1934 he captained th e Am el '' c an track and field team which toured Europe and that fail he was awarded the Sullivan medal as the nation's outstanding amateur athlete. Gritty Bitsy Grant Take the case of the Bryan M. Grant Jr., who has shown as much if not more stamina on the country's tennis courts than any player in the history of the sport despite his pint-size stature. Grant, Who once pooh-poohed the past- time pf tennis, is self-develpped also At 14 years of age he contracted, a serious case of pneumonia and 10 years later couldn't break an egg with a tennis racquet! But, at 15, he won the Southern men's singles championship and has since marched into the tennis hall of fame.' He's the "Little Bill"' Johnston of the current court era. ill Walker, pitching ace of the St. Lpiu's Cardinals and ope of the standouts Of the National league's spring drive, is another exhibit in th's gallery. Walker, who plunged in.to M^y with a 4-0 shutout victory over the Brooklyn Dodgers, says he was troubled with a jeaky heart when he was a youngster in grade school, and had to tjike things easy. But he plugged away a.t his training and n.ow he's burning 'em over the cprners in the big leagues and carries 190 p.punds pn his 6-foot-I frame. Annette Kellerman, the first mermaid, to win a wprld-rWide ao-. cjaim, was the despair pf her parr Brits when 5 years plel. Jhfaritile paralysis hM left her so .feadiy crippled that braces were necessary i'V«4« her hiua (JPAVU. Belays fetied all kinds of cures, but to no avail. A O^Ff aELDtf! MD NO ~ME ASH , MILL BZ A LITTLE ROAB RUNNERS AND PHILLIPS 66, BORGANS AND if EWEES TOf LAY ON SUNDAY The Borger Christians, new entry in the Panhandle Junior baseball league, will come to Pampa Sunday to play the Peewees at Magnolia park, according to a tentative schedule for week-end games. The Little Road Runners will play the Phillips 66 boys, probably at Phillips diamond. Canadian's Cubs have not announced they are ready to resume play in the league, and unless other arrangements are made both Canadian and Hoover will be inactive Sunday. Last Sunday, the Peewcc.s smashed Hoover 14 to 3, Busby's Indians broke a tic in the ninth inning and beat the Little Road Runners 13 to 8. The Borgans swamped the Phillips lads 12.to 4 at the Texas Elf diamond. /The, Christians are .the class of the boy teams in Borger and have not lost a game this year. Three of the members of the team live at the Texas Elf camp. Their coach is C. E. Sharp and their sponsor, C. M. Spurlock of the Borger Christian church. The Little Road Runners is the only team still undefeated in league play. They have won all their games by huge scores, but the Peewees gave them the most opposition. The Peewees have lest one league game and lias defeated all other teams played. 6 MAJOR GRID GAMES BOOKED FOR CENTENNIAL THIS FALL A friend one day suggested swimming- and though she had to take 17 lessons, the exercise put the zest of life back into her body and she junked the braces. Not only did Annette Kellerman become a champion mermaid, but also America's Venus. Couldn't Climb Stairs A close parallel to the Kellerman case is that of Charles Atlas, the physical culturist, who at 16 was a 97-pound weakling and was warned by doctors not even to climb stairs. But consistent exercise gradually conditioned his body until on two different occasions he won from all comers the title of the world's most perfectly developed man. Distance swimming and running are two of his hobbies and today at 43, he can run 10 miles in slightly over 58 minutes. Johnny Weissmuller, one - time holder of all free-style swimming records and twice ah Olmpic hero, wa.s physically weak and as a youngster caught every illness that visited his neighborhood Swimming- gave Weismuller the envied physique which cast him in the Tarzan role Then there is Bobby Jones, the Atlanta par-pusher who in 1930 scored golf's "grand slam" when he won the American and British open and amateur titles in one conquering march. Jones started life with an oversize head, a frail body and staring knees. Morevoer, he had a serious digestive derangement which caused his parents and physicians much worry. The now stocky and robust Jones did not eat any real food until he was 5 yea,rs old. But da.ily exercise in sandlot baseball and tennis, and then years and years of golfing- developed his body and gave him competitive five and zip. Because of his lack of physical develppmont, Qeprge Matison, now a University of Minnesota senior and'prospect for the Olympic gymnastic team, was cut fvpm his college's fveshman fpotball squad. Minnesota coaches sfter a quick appraisal of his slight built advised him to ta.ke up a sport less strenuous. Matjspn, by determination, overcame h, 1 - 8 physical Qb- stucles and'is now nlxnit to ivncli his KmM--ti uqslllo^ p,vi the Olympic-team. DALLAS, June 5. (/PI—Football fans should gee scrne relief from baseball's "ideal weather" today by eyeing the Texas Centennial Ex- poUtion's big-time fall grid card. Six major games have been booked for the Cotton Bowl, huge exposition stadium. . . First in line will be the all-America-Chicago Bear game on Sept. 7. . , Fans will ballot on choices for the collegiate eleven, picking players from last year's teams. First big college game falls on Oct. 10. . . The University of Texas and University of Oklahoma will resume their colorful rivalry. . . On Oct. 17, Coach Matty Bell's Mustangs carry the Southwest's banner into a game with Ray Morrison's Vanderbilt Commodores. The Texas Christian Horned Frogs, last year's Sugar Bowl winners, take the field Oct. 24 for a scrap with Mississippi State, one of the better teams of the 1935 sea- sen. . . Next comes the Hardin- Simmons T CoUege of Mines game and then Texas A. and M., doped to have the finest club in Aggieland since 1927, meets Southern Methodist on Nov. 7. Not in Dallas but still a Centennial attraction will be the Texas Aggie-Manhattan game at Tyler early in December. Sports Director Jimmy Stewart of the Centennial also promises a flock of high school games, a golden glove boxing tourney, championship tennis matches, swimming and diving meets and other attractions. Contemporary Copier Parris of Lubbock points out, and rightfully so, that this corner erred recently in stating Texas Tech's coaching school is extinct. . . Correct infprnifltipn: The scho.pl has been si,is- pended for a year and will be back in 1937 b.igger and. better than ever. Lou Little, Columbia's head .man, probably wiU head the schopl. . . Repairs on the school's athletic plant and inability to pbtain coaches desired caused only a postponement this year.

(/P) —As the tireless old master, Walter Hagen. surveyed the par-busting wreckage of the opening of the 40th National Open Golf championship, he lapsed into reverie today, recalling his title defense over these same Baltusiol links 21 years ago. As might have been expected, the 43-year old wpnder was swallowed up in the greatest first round scoring spree in the history of the championship, with Paul Runyan, Ray Mangrum and big Clarence Clark deadlocked with three-under- par 69's for the lead, and no fewer than eleven other shotmakers one or two strokes below par 72. But when the twilight settled on the record-breaking bombardment, it still couldn't screen the reflections of the Old Haig. As matters stand, Hagen, with a creditable 74, is five shots behind the pace-making trio. However, Hagen said it was a great round for him, greater than his opening bid in defense of the title he won in 1914. Some of the holes played in this championship were part of the old course. The bronzed oldster, who first won the open crown when the birdie trio of today were cooing like birdies, pointed with pride to the fact, that he reached 15 greens in regulation figures yesterday. "That's better than I did 21 years ago and then I was just a freshie," smiled Hagen. The years haven't changed him. He's still the same old swashbuckling Hagen of the indomitable spirit, gay, carefree—and late. "Twenty-one years ago, I figured I still was going to be the champion," he reflected. "But I believed I played with a little more confidence then. There weren't so many possible winners In the filed. "Man, oh man, but I'd like to have the confidence to feel that this was 'my show' as I did then. But I like to see those youngsters up there. Maybe I was just a fresh kid to the oldtimers years ago, but the youngsters of today are making the game bigger and bigger. More power to 'em, but just as a reminder, don't count the "Old Haig" out for keeps." However, the old maestro faced a struggle this show. A stroke off the pace were Johnny Revolta, Henry Picard, the pre-tournament favorite, Vic Ghezzi, 41-year old Tom Kerrigan, Les Madison and Frank Moore, brother of Terry, St. Louis Cardinal outfielder. Two strokes back were Craig Wood, Ted Longworth, Ky Laffoon, Johnny Bulla and Harry Cooper with 71's. Ten others were notched at par. All told there were 80 players .separated by six shots, from 69 to 75. « Sports Roundup By EDDIE BRIETZ Associated Press Sports Wrl'.cr NEW YORK, June 5. W)—At Balusrol; Strange sight, indeed, to see Bobby Jones and Lawson Little, Jr., sitting on the sidelines as the boys teed off in the National Open. . Bobby and a couple of pals went out for a practice round, but old Walter Hagen. looking younger and jovial than ever, soon had the Jones gallery following him. . . Who will win? Well, Jack Doyle, famous Broadway betting commissioner, says Horton Smith and Henry Picard are favorites. . In Doyle's book, this pair is 8 to 1 to win, 3 to 1 to place and 8 to 5 to show. At Napanoch: The dope here is that Joe Jacobs and Ma,x Sehmellng will definitely split after the Joe Louis fight and that "Yussel Yoe" will go in as matchmaker of Mike Jacobs' Hippodrome. . . Trevor Wig- nail, famous sports columnist of the London Express, is watching Max train. . . Also, Tommy Webster, the London cartoonist. . Both came over on the Queen Mary. . . Note to Joe Louis: Back in 1926 Schmeling knocked out a guy named W. Louis in one heat in a European ring—if that means anything. . . Schmeling puts in his spare time trying to learn to use a typewriter. . . . Max has promised he'll return to Napanoch to train for Braddock —if he whips Louis. Ah! Along Broadway: They say the Dempseys expect another "cheerful little earful" in August. YESTERDAY'S STARS (Uy The Atisoumtocl Press) Mickey Cochian 6 .

Outside of the Kansas City Monarchs, the Oilers are expected to give the Pampans their stiffest opposition of the season. Either Sam Gray or Lee Daney will take the mound tonight, Manager Sam Hale reported before leaving. That will leave him Carl Stewart, Gene Ledfotd and George Bulla for the other two games. Ledford will probably be reserved for the Sunday afternoon tilt. It was learned yesterday that Fred Polvogt has a chipped bone in his ankle. He was struck by one of Ledford's fire balls Wednesday night. The Borger catcher left the game in the seventh inning and after his departure, the Blackfaces scored five runs but it wasn't enough to overcome the Road Runner lead of eight runs. FIRST DOWN -AND THEN SOME GRAYSON Eddie Hart and a sportsman's syndicate have snatched Ralph Odell from the University of Southern California football squad and embarked the young man on a pugilistic career. Hart Is very enthusiastic. The old Princeton captain and tackle points to Odell's youth, size, speed, punch, rudability, gameness, and aggressiveness. The candidate is to be taken east and given the finest coaching and training obtainable. It's a noble experiment worthy of success, but similar ones have proved that championship, especially those of the larger dimensions, are not made that way. Heavyweight champions just Jmve to grow up, like James J. Corbett, Fitz, Jeff, Johnson, Dempsey, and Tunney. Jim Hraddock wasn't fondled, neither was Joe Louis. They simply were chucked in there when professional handlers considered them ready. 'See that he gets the best of everything," were the orders given Windsor. The young men got all that, and then some, for six months. Things being what they were, Windsor wasn't in any hurry to start his pupil. Windsor was getting what to him at the time was a liana- some retainer. At the end of six months the millionaire grew impatient. He was supremely confident that his protege could wade through an army of pachyderms, and insisted upon action. He got it in the way of the softest kind of an amateur match for his charge. The champion-to-be ga ve on excellent imitation °f Gypsy Joe Beckett in reverse. '"•What was the difficulty?" the sponsor wanted to know. 'He needs a little more time," advised Windsor. Six more months of schooling followed. Then sga;n an easy test and once more the 'stretch. Disappointed, the man of money demanded an explanation. "The boy's the right ^ge, isn't he, Mr. Windsqr?" he asked; '"Twenty, which is perfect for a start," replied the trainer. 'Big enough?" "Si,x feet one, 210 pounds. Ideal." •Fast?" 'I don't see how Jim Cprbptt could have been any faster." "Punch?" "Dempsey couldn't have dpne any mpj-e Damage with an ax." "Can he take it?" "Joe Grimm had a china chin in comparison." "Game?" "Anyone who has gloves laced on his hands is game." "Aggressive?" "To a fault." "Does he lik.e the business?" "I can't keep him out pf the gymnasium." 'Then, tell .me, M»'- Wiudspr, .what in the world is wrong With m.y heavyweight," summed. UP the baek- BASEBALL STANDINGS NATIONAL LEAGUE Results Yesterday New York 5. Chicago 8. Boston 5.

"It is high time for decisive action." wrote Otto from his exile MI Belgium to Baron von Wiesner, legi- imate leader. "I am ready at any hour to return to the fatherland and give Austria its old unity, power and happiness." The Baron immediately circulated the declaration as "an imperial letter," thus contributing even more confusion to the political situation DALLAS WHIPPED TULSA IN 13 INNINGS BY I Hy The Associated 1'rossi Today's games: Tulsa at Dallas fnight i. Oklahoma City at Fort Worth (night). Houston at Beaumont (day). San Antonio at Galveston (night). Beaumont's hustling Shippers trt-d hard on the heels of the second-place Houston Buffaloes today, only a thin 13 percentage points separating the two teams. The Shippers edged closer to the league top by whipping the Buffs for the second consecutive time, 8 to 6, In a game at Beaumont yesterday. Leo Twardy, pitching for the Shippers, was shaky in ' the first inning but thereafter settled down. The winners spotted Houston four runs in the initial frame. The Dallas Steers, newly arrived in first position, yielded to Tulsa in a 13-inning battle at Dallas. Al Baker for Dallas and Newel Kimball for Tulsu pitched air-tight ball up to the thirteenth. Then Baker weakened and Tulsa's batsmen chased acioss four runs. The score wns 8 to 4. At Fort Worth an extra-inning; buttle went to Fort Worth's Cats over Oklahoma City's Indians, 4-3. George Susce hit a homer in the tenth to bring victory to the cellar- ites. A lot of hard work and time went into a doubleheader at Galveston between the Bucs and San Antonio, but neither improved or weakened their league standings, which are not exactly high. Galveston won the opener, 2 to 1, in a thrilling contests and San Antonio took the second, 8 to 3. ALWAYS A CATCH ADA, Okla. W)—The candidates for county commissioner have decided to "play ball" in the coming campaign. Nino of them arranged a baseball game with the Maxwell community team to lure a crowd Sunday afternoon. Before the game there'll be speeches. which has been highly uncertain since Chancellor Kurt Schuschniga left Vienna several clays ago to meet Premier Mussolini in Italy. A high official of the chancellory termed "ridiculous" reports published abroad that the restoration of the monarchy was imminent in consequence of the conversations in Italy. However, another official, equally as well informed, said the question of a plebiscite on whether the people themselves want a monarchy might be discussed by Schuschnigg and Mussolini.
