XI (AP>—The wallop that 18— flat- Challedon Shows Speed In Turf Test; Whirlaway's Stock Drops tened Gus Dorazio echoed in the Pennsylvania senate tonight amid a shrill accusation that Gus "took a perfect dive" for Joe Louis and a call for an inquiry by the senators themselves. ' Cried Sen. John J. Haluska, back in legislative halls after a night out in which he saw the pride of South Philadelphia fold under the Louis gtpves in the second round: "We should investigate to de- Itermine if possible who was responsible for such a farce." He 'said that he knew a "perfect dive" when he saw one. He used to ba a boxer. Joe Martino, manager of Dorazio, retorted: "The senator is either blind or crazy." He added that nothing would give him greater pleasure than to watch "one of those senators take a punch like the one Louis threw at Dorazio." Senator Haluska's demand for an Inquiry and his cry of "Frame-up" came as no great surprise. He was among a delegation of senators who watched the fight as guests of Sen. H. Jerome Jaspan. Senator Jaspan has pending a resolution to investigate the Pennsylvania athletic commission. The senate judiciary committee has referred the resolution to a subcommittee. Dorazio alone remained calm and, though somewhat out of shape, apparently in fair health. He was not one to shed much light, for he swore he "didn't feel a thine." In fact, he could not even join the class of past Louis victims now telling how hard the Brown Bomber hits. Said Gus, it was like this: "In the second round, I see an opening. I let go with my left. Next thing I know the fight is over. ND sir, I didn't feel a thing." Leon L. Rains, chairman of the Pennsylvania athletic commission, said indignantly that the commission physician reported Dorazio "so completely knocked out that he had a hard time bringing him around." Joe Louis didn't say anything, so far as was known here. Maybe he didn't know anybody had complained. Leaving his manager to col- Jert his S18.730.70 last night, they said at Philadelphia—Joe went back to New York. T OS ANGELES, Feb. 18—(AP)— •" Challedon demonstrated today that he can still be ranked as a big contender in the coming $100,000 Santa Anita Handicap. The Maryland invader, running in a special "betless race" between regular races at Santa Anita Park, turned in his hardest effort since coming off the shelf last fall and c-ierged from the stiff seven- furlong trial apparently sound as a dollar. The special event was arranged by Challedon's owner, William L. Brann, to determine for himself and the public how his mighty champion was coming along in his training program for the big handicap March 1. The training schedule had been seriously interrupted by a hoof injury and bad weather. Challedon,- under colors, went to the post with five other horses, including Rough Pass, another candidate for the Santa Anita Handicap. The test was carried out in regulation style with the exception that the public was not permitted to bet on the outcome. Snhoffpyiththe At the half-mile post Wisbech broke to serve as a fresh pacesetter for Challedon. Wisbech managed to cross the finish line a length in front of Challedon, with Rough Pass trailing the Marylander. Challendon was clocked at one minute, 26 3/5 seconds flat for the seven furlongs. The track was slow. He carried 126 pounds, four less than he will carry in the March 1 handicap. Jockey George Woolf was in the saddle. "Compared to the last time I rode him, I'd say he ran easily and was at no time extended," Woolf said. "I thought he ran all right I didn't think he was tiring. He was puffing a little at the finish, though." Challedon broke sluggishly, but soon hit into a long stride. L. C Whitehall, his trainer, said he was satisfied and added, "the work wil" do him a lot of good." Challedon, he said, would run in the $10,000 San Antonio Handicap Saturday, last big stake before the Santa Anita Handicap. PHILADELPHIA. Feb. 18—(AP) Philadelphia and New York sports writers differed today with John J. Haluksa. state senator, who accused Gus Dorazio of taking a "perfect dive" in his fight with Joe Ebuis Jast night. "The knockout punch wns so awe-inspiring it probably took . SI 00,000 off the Conn gate," ,, declared Jimmy Powers of the New York News. "It was one•-sided, hut it was honest. Joe ••could easily have carried his man a few additional rounds to ... forestall a. threatened investigation by Pennsylvania politicians." Comment from other writers who at the ringside: --Dan Parker, New York Mirror: "I don't think Dorazio took a dive. Joe hits too hard to need co-operation from the likes of Gustavus." Joe Phelan, Philadelphia Record: "All I can say is the knockout sniack was the hardest punch I've ever seen Louis toss—and I've seen all but a couple of his fights." Johnny Webster, Philadelphia Inquirer: "Louis, in that . moment, was a savage as when .he bombed Max SchnielinR to crushing defeat in less than a round." _. o .. Matt Ring, Philadelphia Bulle- by 37 hits, tin: "Bettor than some of the more Snyder did exalted challengers, Dorazio made both sides a:sineere and courageous try." : Lou Jaffe, Philadelphia Ledger: "It was a fearless Dorazio who went headlong into the battle." Bill Dooly, Philadelphia Rec~_ ord: "All I ask is that to prove "' his point Senator Haluska permit Louis to land the same punch." Ted Meier, Associated Press: •TLiOuis put Dorazio to sleep so soundly that Gus didn't know he \v£s counted out." o Warneke Signs : Card Contract ST. LOUIS, Feb. 18—(AP)—The Cardinals tonight announced the signing of Pitcher Lon Warneke for his 12th season in the National League. He has won 60 games and lost 36 In four years with St. Louis. - Two rookies also were signed to 3541 contracts—Pitcher Max Sur- Jtont, who led the Three-I League in won-lost percentages last season, winning 19 and losing five for Decatur, 111.; and Infielder Steve JSesner, who hit .341 for San Diego th the Pacific Coast League last year. '•• The Cards now have 26 players in the fold. Injuries Cause IGridder'sDeath "•BURLINGAME, Calif., Feb. 18— GJP)—David J. Fitzpatrick, 19 years old, died last night of football iftjuries suffered during spring practice at St. Mary's College last year, it was disclosed today. ; Fitzpatrick, a graduate of Bur- iingame High School, played on the St. Mary's freshman team in 1939. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. William E. Fitzpatrick. He has a brother, William, who also played football at Burlingame and St. Mary's. Pilot, Solon Rookies Start Trek To Camp WASHINGTON, Feb. 18—(INS) Stanley (Bucky) Harris, manager of the Washington Senators headed southward to spring training quarters at Orlando, Fla., today with a contingent of 13 rookie pitchers in tow. The group will start working out Tuesday. VALD1XA UKOOM \VL\S ARCADIA, Calif., Feb. 18—(UP) Valdina Groom, backed down to less than even money, rewarded the form-players by whipping a not- too-classy field today in the seven furlong 52,500 San Bernardino Purse at Santa Anita Park. The Valdina farms chestnut colt racing wide throughout to avoic the-heavy going on the rail, wa shaken up at the far turn by Jockey Pariso and won easily by thre quarters of a length over Kantar Run.

MIAMI, Feb. 18—(AP)—The New York Giants held their first Spring Training Begun By Giants Winning Nose TVyflAMI, Fla., Feb. 18—(AP)— ivj - Whirlaway's Kentucky Derby stock tumbled today as he was beaten by 4% lengths in a final tuneup for the $20,000 added Flamingo Stakes at Hialeah Park Saturday. Warren Wright's well-regarded colt, the nation's top money-earning juvenile last year, ran a poor third behind Agricole and Cadmium, both owned by Theodore Mueller's Shady Brook farm. Whirlaway's defeat was the most ignominious of his brilliant career. Conn McCreary, riding his second winner of the day after graduating from the apprentice ranks, guided Agricole to a length and a half victory over his stablemate. Maemere farm's Maemante and Be'air stud's Boliver were distant trailers in the five-horse race. Whirlaway, ridden by the accomplished Basil James, who flew here from California, had no excuses. The crowd had backed him down to 30 cents on the dollar. The Wright colorbearer broke even faster than usual, but did not come through with his accustomed stretch rush, as he had done to win his recent winter debut. He made his move around the first turn, got no closer than two lengths to Agricole, and then flattened out in the final drive. Whirlaway didn't show his occasional tendency to run wide at the last turn, although the winner did. Cadmium, cutting the corner, easily out- finished Whirlaway despite a , .e\v cracks of the whip by James.

(Spike) non-graduate football boss, tonight named his staff'of seven assistants—four of them holdovers from the last regime—and coupled it with an expression of "confidence in the future."' ' • Nelson, former lows star who replaced Raymond W. (Ducky) Pond as head football coach last month when Yale cast aside its graduate coaching system, went to the Midwest for most of his appointees. They are: Edward E. Howell, Nebraska, 1929. John P. Sabo, Illinois, 1922. W. Robert Voights, Northwestern, 1939. Ivan B. Williamson, Michigan, Reginald D. Root, Yale, 1926. David G.

The Shady Brook farm entry paid $9.70 for $2 to win and 55.40 to place, with no show mutuels sold. McCreary, who bruised an arm yesterday when his mount ran into the quarter pole during the post parade, won the first race today aboard a first starter, the two- year-old Bezique. The winner, a "field" horse, paid $6.60 straight. Jockey Wendell Eads, the track's leading apprentice who was suspended for the rest of the meeting for careless riding yesterday, took advantage-of his last day in the saddle to boot home Lady Lyonors, a 5.30 favorite, in the fourth race. Eads' suspension begins tomorrow. The veteran Don Meade, top rider of the meet, guided in his 34th winner in the second aboard Mary Schulz, which paid $6.30. jjrving Anderson, bruised and shaken up in a spill yesterday, came back to score a double.

Pitcher Eddie Stutz and Outfielder Jake Powell are the only unsigned athletes. • Rookie Rejoins Cardinals Swim Star To Turn Pro T LONDON, Ky., Feb. 18—(AP)— •^ Mary Moorman Ryan, who set three records in the national amateur swimming championships last year, said yesterday she will "go professional next year." . Acceptance of a post as swimming instructor at Sue Bennett Junior College here hastened her decision. Although the job pays no money, Miss Moorman, 16 years old, will get board and room from the school. The Kentucky Amateur Athletic Union opposed her taking the job because It said accepting board and room would cause Miss Moorman to 'lose her amateur standing. She said she already had made up her mind to turn professional, but that for the present she would continue her high school studies in addition to teaching swimming. Miss Moorman came here recently from Louisville, Ky., when her mother, who holds a Work Projects Administration administrative job, was transferred. The Kentucky mermaid established new marks for the quarter- mile, half-mile and mile free-style events at Portland, Ore., last summer. The Colts and the Vikings meet at 4 o'clock this afternoon in battle for third place, following which the Bunnies and the Pups take the floor to decide the title On the form displayed in yesterday's game, Coach Mercier Willard's Mesa team should have little difficulty defending the title it won last year on the same floor, while the Colts are expected to dispose of the Vikings with ease. Mesa came from behind to win yesterday's game, flashing a greai and the legendary Bill Tilden. The Valley of the Sun is one of the 60 spots scheduled by the quar- et of net notables and, if the tense, rilliant tennis the four have play- d thus far in their first swing hrough the country together is ,n' accurate indication, the matches lere won't be a mere parade • of gilt-edged names. • From the opening matches January 6 in New York's Madl- ' son Square Garden—the professional debuts of Miss Marble and Mis* Hardwicke—the tour has been featured by hard- fought tennis at ito be»t. When Miss Marble set out down the gold trail early in the. year after a long reign as queen of the amateur courts, the experts were almost unanimous in agreeing that she would find the opposition no ougher. But Miss Hardwicke, the r ormer British Wightman Cup star who wintered in Phoenix last year, has offered her brilliant competi- ;ion. She is more than just a foil r or Miss Marble's power and cunning.. She has lost most of her awe—although none of her respect for California's Golden Girl—rfuid is jaining confidence with each match. Miss Marble, however, is the big attraction and, to date, she hasn't disappointed her audiences. She is one of the game's most colorful performers and without doubt is one of the greatest feminine performers tennis has known. The old adage "youth must be served" means practically nothing to Tilden. In a recent match, he stepped out of character as the grandpappy of tennis, and spotting Budge 22 years, pinned the Oakland redhead's ears to the back of his youthful head. During the match, the "Old Master" blasted 11 service aces past his bewildered rival's head. 'Don't count me out of the picture yet," the aging Tilden said after the match. "My legs may not be as spry as they used to be, but can still show the boys a few tricks." During the tour, Tilden has given ample 1 proof of -why he is often called the greatest racket-wielder of all time. He has displayed more than fleet- Ing revivals of his fading talent • hi facing Budge's devastating game. Miss Marble and the Oakland dynamiter have dominated the tour. Somewhere along the safari. Tilden and the British girl are likely to turn in a double upset. And Phoenix may be the spot. fourth-quarter rally to edge Colts in the last 30 seconds of thp ilay f pli _ after trailing the entire game. The pay-off came in the final half minute when the Colts were stall ing behind a 32-to-31 lead. Bob Levy, forward, flashed out of the Mesa defense, stole the ball, ant raced down court for a setup to sew up the contest. The Colts started out very hoi and went into a 12-4 lead the opening quarter when Bill Ham mbntree and Leo Voyles seemingly couldn't miss regardless of when the shot came from. North Phoe nix led at the intermission, 18-10 and still maintained about the same margin at the three-quarters when the score was 26-19. Pew was high man with 10 points, while Jamieson scored eigh for the Colts. Coach R. V. Zegers Phoenix Pups played listlessly, but led St. Mary's, 8-6, at the quarter and 13-9 at the half after a defensive duel. The Pups slowly lengthened their lead and had a 25-19 margin at the three-quarters. Dave Goodwin paced the Pup. with 16 points. Carazza led the St. Mary's tying with club Bill Pups for second honors. with 10 points Downey of the Chisox Complete Player Roster CHICAGO, Feb. 18— (INS)— The Chicago White Sox of the American LeagueY became the first major baseball team to report all players signed for the 1941 campaign today when Pete Appleton, relief pitcher, announced that he was dropping, his contract in the mail. Consequently the entire Sox playing roster of 34 is now in the fold. Appleton will come to Chicago from his home in Perth Amboy, N. J., to leave with 14 other players Friday night when the first Sox contingent departs for the Pasadena, Calif., spring training camp. Appleton came to the White Sox last season, along with Outfielder Taft Wright in a deal which sent Outfielder Gerald Walker to the Washington Senators. He appeared in 25 games for the Sox last season and was credited with four victories and no defeats. • Meanwhile, the Chicago Cubs tight little list of holdouts was reduced by one today with the signing of Outfielder Augie Galan, xv-ith 13 players still to go.

In the pole vault his "absolute ceiling" was 15 feet. Then Cornelius Warmerdam came along last summer and boosted the world record to 15 feet, IV inches. Today Earle Meadows declared he felt vaulters would be able- to clear 16 feet and perhaps—shades of the pioneers!—even 11, with the aid of a. new takeoff box he has designed after two years of studying the theory of vaulting. Meadows, winner of the last Olympic title and set to defend his national indoor championship here next Saturday, explained the present slot doesn't enable the vaulter to take full advantage of the speed he generates on the runway. His design, which involves such gadgets as ball-bearings and a slot that moves up as pole and vaulter go up, still is on paper, but he was given permission yesterday by Dan Ferris of the Amateur Athletic Union to proceed with construction. Ferris explained that, provided the Meadows invention did not give the vaulter any extra mechanical aid, he saw no reason why it should not be perfectly legal. Waner's Hitting Features Drill fJAVANA, Feb. 18—(AP)—Hugh •*•••• Casey reported at the Brooklyn Dodgers' training camp today to complete Manager Leo Durocher's roster of 17 pitchers, but the feature of the day's drill again was the hard hitting of Paul Waner. Waner. who already has brought tiis weight up to 142 pounds, hit the 'longest drive of the workout. He's concentrating on pull hitting with the idea of bombarding the short right field wall at Ebbets Field. Fred Fitzsimmons missed the drill because of a sprained right ankle and a bruised heel suffered yesterday. Dicus Named To A-T Post Dwight Sloan, a player with the Detroit Lions of pro football, has gone into the army as a second lieutenant An all-Chinese basketball team, the .San Francisco Hong Wah Hues, is touring the country. B ISBEE, Feb. 18—(AP)—R. Souers, president of the . E. Arizona-Texas Baseball League today appointed Waldo Dicus, Bisbee High School athletic director, as secretary-statistician of'the league. Dicus succeeds Eddie Miller, business manager of the Tucson Cowboys. At the annual meeting of the league directors in November, the board ' empowered the league president to appoint a statistician in the same city In which the presidents resides. Dicus announced his resignation from the directorate of the Bisbee baseball club. His appointment becomes effective immediately.' The new secretary is a graduate of the. University of Arizona, where he was active in athletics and he now coaches baseball among other sports at Bisbee High School. ALICE MARBLE The "Golden Girl" of tennis— Alice Marble—will visit Phoenix March 16 in her current swing through the United States. Playing with her on the Phoenix Country Club courts will be Mary Hardwicke, who made her professional debut with Miss Marble early in January, Don Budge and Bill Tilden. Martin Sees Team's Rise OACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 18— 0 (UP)—The firebrand of the old gas-house gang, John (Pepper) Martin in person, rolled into Sacramento today, with-his wife, three children" and three dogs and pronounced hiniself ready to hoist the Sacramento Solons into the Pacific Coast League baseball championship. "The Wild Horse of the Osage," as he was known during- his hey-day with the St. Louis Cardinals, drove out from Oklahoma City after finishing his spring plowing. Despite a blow-out on his car and trailer en route, the Solons' new manager was all smiles. "I am starting a new career," he said. "I was in the big leagues as a player and had considerable success. Now I want to go back to the majors as a manager. I think I can do it and I know I will hustle hard to make good in Sacramento. "I think we have the makings of a winning outfit. I know Don Gutteridge, Jack Sturdy, Buster Adams, Lynn King and Boots Hollingsworth are fine boys. I think we can fire them all up and maybe do all right in the pennant chase." Sacramento dropped to fifth place in the coast league last year after winning the 1939 play offs. The squad will report March 3 at Fullerton, Calif., and Martin will supervise the rookie school there beginning a week from tomorrow. But what scares the new manager most is the round of public appearances Phil Bartelme, president, has lined. He vows he won't make speeches but Bartelme thinks he will. . en men who are mature enonzii ' to be earning from KMtt to $30,000 a year, and if protee- tion of their income brft » stronge enough motive fe keeping out of trouble, thert* not going to be stopped br'. book of regulations."
