THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1939. SEVENTEEN Sports of Sorts So eager were Lou Ambers and his manager, Al Weill, to get a return shot at Henry Armstrong and the lightweight title which .Henry won from" Lou about a year ago, that they signed.away all claims to the welterweight crown should Ambers defeat Armstrong for the 135- pound championship. Ambers plainly is interested only in the "lightweight title: And Lou wants that back more than anything else in the world. He wants to be the first lightweight champion to regain the crown from the man who took it from him. The history o£ the lightweight class shows that Tony Canzoneri did regain the lightweight title but Tony did not do so 'by defeating the fighter who won it from him. Tony lost his lightweight*crown to Barney Ross. When Ross relinquished the title because he could no longer make the weight, the New York commission decided that Canzoneri and Ambers should fight it out. Tony defeated Lou and became champion for the secor*! time. In a return match, Ambers»took th© crown away from Tony and held it until he ran into Armstrong. Ambers has been most successful in reversing decisions against men who beat him the first time. He feels certain he can repeat the trick when he faces Armstrong again on August 22 in the Yankee Stadium. The first Armstrong-Ambers fight close enough to indicate that Lou is not fighting a hopeless cause. Henry did drop Lou twice and gave him quite a going over in the early rounds but toward- the end Lou found a way of solving Henry's buzz-saw style and gave Armstrong quite a beating. At the final bell, it was Armstrong who had suffered the most punishment^ although he was clearly entitled to the verdict on the basis of rounds won. Feeling that he has solved Armstrong's style. Ambers is devoting most ot his training sessions to developing a harder punch. Had he boasted anything like a finishing punch, in their first meeting, it is highly probable that he could have stopped Henry. His uppercuts smashed Henry's lip and had him in a bad way from loss of blood but Lou lacked the punch to finish him. (l»y Tlic A»MH'!JHeil Pro**) Augie Galan, Cubs—Batted in one- run with double and hit homer to give Chicago .2-1 victory over Reds.

By JUDSON BAILEY, A.P. Sports Writer The newest nominee for the pitcher that went to the well once too often is Emil (Dutch) Leonard of the Washington Senators. Because he had a phenomenal knack for tying the world champions in knots, Leonard very properly was the first thought of his manager^ Bucky Harris, every time the Nats faced the New York Yankees this season. Dutch stopped the Yanks the first four times he was called, but yesterday-they ended his jinx with a 4-0 conquest. Leonard gave only six hits and pitched five Iritless, runless innings in a row. However, his offerings included a pair of doubles in the first inning, one of them by Joe Bi- Maggio, a home 'run by Di Mag, with one on in the seventh and another homer by Red Rolfe in the eighth. There were other notable examples of pitching yesterday. The Cleveland Indians swept a doubleheader from the St. Louis Browns, 3-0 and 7-1, with Mel Harder earning the shutout on seven hits and Lefty Al Milnar taking the nightcap on four. Fidler Bill McGee of the St. Louis Cardinals pitched a three-hit 3-0 shuto'ut in the second game of a double-header with the Pittsburgh Pirates after the Redbirds had won the opener, 4-3, to narrow the gap between them and Cincinnati's National league leaders to six games. Bucky Walters oi the Reds, only 20-game winner in the majors, held the Chicago Cubs to five hits but suffered his eighth defeat, 2-1. The Reels could accomplish little with eight scattered hits off Claude Pas- seau. Sailor Bill Posedel pitched the Boston Bees to a 9-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on six hits in the first half of a double bill and had plenty of help. Henry Majeski doubled with the bases loaded and hit a home run, and Buddy Hassett tripled with the bases jammed. But in the nightcap, Hugh Mulcahy -stripped the stingers out of the Bees for a 3-2 win. The New York Giants pounced on Al Hollingsworth in his Brooklyn Dodger debut with three runs in the first and scored four more off Tot Pressnell in the fourth for a 7-3 conquest which went to the credit of Cliff Melton. The southpaw pitcher had to be helped on the mound, but not at the plate. He contributed a perfect day at bat with a double, two singles and a sacrifice, During the game the Giants announced the indefinite suspension of second baseman Burgess Whitehead for breaking club rules. One of his infractions was showing up' late for games. Another second baseman, a chap named Charley Gehringer, got back into the DetroitTigers* lineup after a long illness to deliver a pinch home run with one on in the eighth inning. This tied the score against the Chicago White Sox, but the latter won out, in the 12th inning. 7-6, on two singles and an infield out. The Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Athletics were idle. .(.By The AssocJnted Press) NATIONAL LEAGUE Batting—Mize, St. Louis, .351; Arnovich, Philadelphia, .341.

Title Hasn't Changed Conn Mother Says He Is Same Big Kid Who Likes To Play Baseball. PITTSBURGH, Aug. 17 (/p).—To everyone else Billy Conn" may be the world's lightweight boxing champion, but to his mother he's still a big kid who plays sandlot baseball in his bare feet. "Take last Saturday night," plump, jovial Mrs. William Conn. Sr,, said today. "Billy was due to leave on the 7:15 p. m. plane for Philadelphia to light that boy Gus Dorazio. (Conn's first defense of his title.) But whcrc's Billy— down in a sandlot playing ball with tho boys he was raised with. "At the last minute he comes tearing into the house barefoot, undressing as he runs, and jumps into somo clean clothes just in time to catch the plane.... "He's a home boy. He hurries right home after every fight. "People say 'I bet you're so proud of Billy." I tell them he's just th same Billy—there's no differen/e now that he's got the title." Rachel McKinley Is Singles Champ Miss Rachel McKinley is the new Cumberland Valley Tennis tourney champion in the ladies singles, gaining that honor yesterday afternoon on the City Park courts before a large gathering of fans by defeating Mrs. Virgie Stephens of Mnrtinsburg in straight sets 6-3 and 6-1. Mrs. Stephens was the defending champion but could not match strokes with her opponent, whose service carried her to the championship. One match is scheduled for this afternoon with Joe Stevenson meeting Frccl Wright in the men's singles. It is estimated that 1.300,000 bicycles were ridden in the United States last year. In foreign countries the riding and racing of bicycles is even more popular. LOOK OUT FOR LOU -By Pap' Elks Softballers Drop Close Game Tonight at 5:30 on the Reservoir diamond the B. P. 0. Elks softbaJl team will play host to the Pioneer Hook and Ladder Company. Both teams are at top form and from all indications this promises to be a very good game. Manager Basore of the Pioneers has stated that he will start either himself or Halbach on the mound with Gossard behind the bat. The Elks will have C- Miller on the mound while either G. Fisher or C. Rouzer will get the call to do the receiving. Last Thursday night on the Reservoir diamond the Elks were defeated by the Pangborn All-Stars in one of the best played contests in Hagerstown this year. The Elks out-hit the All-Stars 7 to 4, but were unable to make their hits when they needed them. Wetzel, pitching for aPngborn, had seventeen strikeouts to his credit. It was a pitchers' battle between C. Miller and Wetzel all the way with only four balls on either side going out of the infield. Two errors accounted for the All-Stars runs while M. Hines hit a home run for the Elks to account for their lone" tally. Panbrorn ... 100 000 001—2 4 2 B. P. O. Elks 000 000 001—1 7 2 Wetzel and Pryor; C. Miller and C. Rouzer. Lead Slashed CHICAGO Ab.

At a meeting held last Tuesday evening at the Coliseum bowling alleys by the Sunday School Bowling L-eague it was decided to start the season on Tuesday evening, Sept. 12, at vS o'clock. President W. H. "Pop" Fisher, starting his third term in office, was given a big ovation as he took his chair and rapped the gavel on his desk and called the meeting to order. With the large turn-out and enthusiasm shown by the captains and members of the league it looks like this will be a banner year. Many changes in the By-Laws were mad© for this year, but the most important change is the fact that a man will be put on the foul line and will call all lofting and crossing of the foul line. This -is a great step forward in bowling in Hagerstown and other leagues should take note and do the same.
