THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1939. SEVEN Sports of Sorts Ambitious amateur golfers who tse off at North Shore Country Club in quest of the national ama teur championship will find no weary, golf-worn titleholder on hand to defend his crown. Willie Turnesa, the little chap who carved his name on the championship cup with his sand-wedge at Oakmon last year, should come up for the big test in perfect condition. Turnesa is small, not at all strong looking. He is not the type o; golfer who can hold his form through a long campaign of tourna' ments. In order to conserve his energy, Willie abstained from any thing that looked like a tournament until a few weeks ago. Weekend matches for the fun of it were all he cared for. His first serious effort in his program of preparing himself for the title defense was in the Anderson Memorial tournament at Winged Foot. Willie Avas very shaky at the start but gathered momentum as the tourney wore on and in the final match played sensationally to win with his partner, Udo Reinach, on the 38th green. Willie was eight under par in the match that was gruelling every step of the way. After the match Turnesa remarked that the tournament was exactly the sort of "tightener" he needed. He found out there was a whale of a difference between a friendly match and a tournament in which there was pressure on every shot. In the late stages of the Anderson Memorial, Willie was getting tremendous distance for a golfer of his size. The answer was that he had succeeded, in the short space of a few days, to get his swing in the groove. He had rhythm in every swing. All of his shots were well hit. In order to make Tip for his lack of size, Willie takes a very full swing, one that must be perfect or will get him into a world of trouble. In a recent match with Chick Evans over the Calumet course, Willie showed that a long course holds no terrors for him. He shot a sub-par 71. By the time the championship rolls around, Turnesa will be ready physically and mentally. He stands an excellent chance of repeating.

Give Game Margin Over Cards; It Was His Twenty-First Victory This Season. By SID FEDER, A.P. Sports Writer The Dodgers aren't going anywhere in the National league pennant chase this year. They're having the fight of their lives trying to regain the bottom of the first division right now, while Cincinnati's Reds, by nosing out the St. Louis Cardinals, 3-1, yesterday in ten innings, are flying five games in front of the pack. But Lie Dodgers may wind up in the money yet, and the Brooklyn fans -would like nothing better. If they do, husky Huge Casey will have a large hit to say about it. He's won 11 games so far this season, tossing a six-hitter on two- days' rest yesterday to whip Boston, 6-2 for his fifth straight decision. And, since bird dog trainer Casey fits right into the jigsaw puzzle of the daffiness boys, the Flatbush folks have taken him to their collective heart. Mostly Hugh has knocked the ears of! the <irst division lads this year collecting eight victories at the expense of the upper bracket clubs. His hurling job yesterday kept the Dodgers just a half game away from fourth place, since the New York Giants also won, blanking the failing Phillies, 6-0, behind Cliff Melton's nine-hit elbowing for their fourth straight win. The Reds had to go all out to boost their league lead to five games, with Bucky Walters chalking up No. 21 in holding the Cards to seven hits. Bucky finally had to win his own ball game with a single in the tenth. The Pirates and Cubs took the day off. Only four teams saw action in the American league. Detroit's Tigers downed the St. Louis Browns, 4-2 and Jimmy Dykes amazing Chicago White Sox socked the Cleveland Indians by the same score. Hank Greenberg's 25th homer broke a tie to make things easy for he Tigers, Avhile the White Sox did all their scoring off the Tribe in the first inning.

J., tavern keeper sometimes called the "beer barrel poker," predicts the outcome of his Sept. 15 fifht with Lou Nova at Philadelphia. Tony still talks about his fight with Joe Louis when he had the champ down for a fleeting moment. Tarzan-like Galento is training at Summit, N. J. Tonight's game at the Stadium bring the Martinsburg Hose Co. No. 3 into play against the local Rogers 'team. The game will start promptly at 5:45 P. M. The many fans who saw the gam-e- last night were treated to a nip and tuck affair, with first one team scoring and leading, then the other team would,drive ahead with runs and the lead changed hands several times until the final inning when the Meyers-Berkson boys retired the last Statton player, and went home to supper after having staged an upset victory as Statton was picked to be one of the finalists by many fans. It was the consensus of opinion among the umpires that the ball was held on the runner long enough to become an out in the recent game between Rogers and Camp Cntoctin. The „ ball was dropped by the baseman after collision with the runner, but was not part of the action that retired the side, as the game was officially over when Umpire Brashears signaled the third out. Dunn Woolen Mills, Kays, Meyers-Berkson, Four States, Hose Co. No. 3, Rogers and Frederick Tailors are the remaining teams left in the tourney and of these four are local teams. With Stattons out of the running, speculation is running rife as to who the two finalists will be this year. The manager of the Rogers team is requested to have his team on the field ready to start the game tonight at 5:45 as darkness might necessitate calling the game if started later. Umpires Hoover, Brashears and Brewbaker who are working the tourney games, have been officiating in games here for several years and their work has pleased the impartial fans. COPPERS AND NEWSIES SET Annual Battle Will Be Played Next Tuesday At Stadium. Pasteboards for the annual Police-Newsies baseball game scheduled for the Stadium field on Tuesday evening, September 12, are being gobbled up by the fans and from all indications it appears as if one of the largest crowds ever to attend one of these affairs will be present when the umpires call "Play Ball." In order that many of the fans can attend without missing any of the play officials have decided to start the game at 5 o'clock. It was thought by the management of the Newsies that this hour was named in order that the Police might be able to get some extra j help. • So that there will be no spying on practice activities the Police I have worked out on five different j fields and while the Newsies have been keeping in trim they have not as yet rounded into the best of condition. Neither manager has as yet announced who would draw the hurling assignment but it begins to look as if "Horseshoe" Hade will start for the Newsies provided Lil Stoner tops off the batting order for the Police, otherwise there is apt to be a change. Kuhlman or McCleary is apt to hurl for the Police. Any fan who hasn't as-yet purchased his or her ticket should contact any of the Police and ask for a ticket, but when you do be sure you have a quarter.

Ray Blades: "I hare no illusions about the Yankees 1 doubt whether an all-star ' National League team could compare with them To beat them any team would need plenty of breaks." CHANNEL SWIM-By 19 minutes Sally Bauer (above) of Sweden failed to equal Gertrude Ederle's 1926 record—14 hours, 31 minutes—in swimming the English channel. Sally's time *rom Cape Gris Nez to Dover was 14 hours, 50 minutes. The Meyers-Berkson softbair team eliminated the Station Furniture team yesterday evening from the Eastern States Tourney when they scored a thrilling 6 to 5 victory on the Stadium field be- I fore a large gathering of fans. Both teams played sloppy ball afield and between them they had a total of 19 men left stranded on the hassocks. Both Berger and Shupp went the route for their teams. In the sixth inning the tide swung in favor of the Meyers- Berkson team when they pushed across the tying, and what later proved to be the winning run. Errors played a big part in the scoring. C. Lapole and Socks reached on errors but Lushbaugh's grounder went for naught as C. Lapole was caught at the plate. Berger was safe on a boot as Socks scored. Price flied to left and Lushbaugh registered the winning marker when Limberg singled. Meyers-Berkson now advance to the third round and will appear again on Saturday. Yesterday was their second win of the tourney. Score: Meyers-Berkson Ab. R. H. O. A. E. Part of Training?

He and Lou Fette hooked up in a tight pitching duel for three innings, but Dolph Camilli's 24th homer of the year, with a mate aboard in the fourth inning broke it tin.
