Kaplan became excited near the close of the round when he missed a hard right to the stomach and the crowd readily saw that he waa in for a boxing lesson from the .Pittsburgh youngster. -Red" Mason put more confidence into Cuddy between tha second and third rounds and the youngster stood waiting for the bell to start the third canto. Kaplan again failed to land hta usual telling blows and Cuddy made his wild swing count by sending several hard rights to his stomach. The Meriden battler was bleeding in the middle of the fourth round when DeMarco sent a volley of rapid blows to his nose and face. He was in bad condition for the first time in his many appearances in this eitv while the youngster. Cnddv. smiled at the newspapermen at the close of the round.

With the prospects ideal beaeball weather, all of the schoolboy leagues with the exception of the Junior and ssnlor parochial loops, will swing into full blast action today with more than a dosen scheduled games. Although the city and parochial leagues opened their season last Tuesday, the three sections of the W. P. L A. L. and the Junior city circuit season will not be officially Inaugurated until today. Most of the scheduled games In the opening round of the Junior aad senior Catholic school leagues were postponed, and it is likely that tha contests will be played off today. St. Rosalias Is scheduled to clash with Holy Name at Duouesne University Field this afternoon, but this may be postponed as the Duke Preps open their home season today with Shadyside Academy nine. It is likely that the Westlnghouse-Langley combat will attract the majority of interest among the city league schools, as both aggregations are considered strong contenders for this year's championship, a title now held by the Brushton team. In the opening round both teams emerged with a victory, Langley swamping South by a 22-2 count while Westlnghouse outslugged Schenley. scoring a 13-10 victory. The showing of the Schenley High team was one of the upsets of the first ronnd, as the Bellefie'iders displayed brilliant form la two pre season contests.

GREB-NORFOLK DRAW SIX MONTHS LAYOFF FOR BOSTON BRAWL BOSTON, April 24. Because of alleged unethical conduct i a bout here last Saturday, Harry Greb of Pittsburgh, world's chan pion middleweight, and Kid Norfolk of New York, middlewei-h were suspended for six months by the Boston boxing commissioj today. The boxit, scheduled for 10 rounds, was stopped in the sixt round and the decision was given to Norfolk. The boxing commi? sioners said that the two men had broken the commission's rules i the regulations made by Referee Jack Sheehan before the boi; started. What The Post Clock SavJ (Continued from Preceding Page.) him, George Bums, with a sharp break!' curve. man was able to connect for a base hit If opposing pitchers figure a low ball to be Traynors weakness, let them keep on pegging down stairs. When he is in his stride he wallops low pitches just as hard as he does those that reach him letters high. No pitcher can stop Traynor from hit ting when he once starts. Praise Carl Mays. fflncinnatl nlavers are singing the nraises of Carl Mays, the former Tan kee hurler, who has already beaten the Pirates and also the Cubs at Redland Wiftlrl Tn the arama asrainst the Cubs recently. Mays, according to his pals, pitched nr.lv half . dozen curve balls. ' His underhand delivery had them baffled. Mays, if he has control, is usually a big puzzle the first time he faces a team. The ball comes to tne rjaixer as if shot out of a hole in the ground. The Pirates were beatenby the vet eran, but they all declare that it will be different the next time they face him. . Schmidt Is Hustling. When Daubert sent up a foul fly In the ninth Inning, Walter Schmidt turned with the crack of the bat and raced in the generaj direction of the ball. His spikes caught on the soggy turf, he fell, and failed to make the catch, but the point is that he tried for the ball, showing that he Is determined to earn the big salary the Pittsburgh club pays him. With Schmidt on hand, in shape and hustling, the local club is greatly strengthened over former seasons when he has remained at home because of salary squabbles. It was refreshing to see Schmidt work yesterday. Marty Berghammer HI. Cincinnati players who were formerly on the St. Paul club with Marty Berghammer, Pittsburgh boy bring back tidings that Marty was stricken with ptomaine poisoning while In training this spring and nearly cashed in his checks. At one time he was reported as being dangerously ill. Marty is back In the lineup, but playing only on his nerve. Post Clock Ticks. Posies for Skipper Bill before the game. Paul Jones, the Wilkinsburg movie house king, helped make the presentation. The Pirates looked natty in their brand new home uniforms with canary colored sweaters. Old gold and black is the color scheme. Grover Land wanned up Lee Meadows before hostilities started. The Pirate bat boy has grown four inches since lsst summer. Be also looked as if he needed a shavs. Harper, substituting for Sonsb la cent field, fouled off the first ball into tha stand There was the usual wrangle, but Us bal came back ta the field where It belonged. Ths Buccos hit the ball hard in their ha of tbe first Inning. Babbit nearly knack Babe Plnelli down with a Una drive, bi the ball stuck in Plnelll'a claws. Max Carey and Bigbee tried the doub steal in the Bucco's half of ths opene Max looked foolish when Hargrove eu guessed him by snapping the ball to ' Con hue, who In, turn slammed to the plate an Max was run down. This is a play where a smart base runne looks foolish and It happens in ths best regutated baseball f&millss. The next time Max might refuse to dasf ror the plate and then the opposition wpul iook just as bad. Glenn Wright robbed Pnt Duncan of a when in the opener he scooped up a harq nit grounder that bounced off Meadow glove, and with a lightning throw to GrimrH completed the play. It looked pretty, the fans) cheered Wright. The Reds' rally in the second was nlpn. in the bud when Donohus hit Into a doub play. Wright te Rabbit to Grimm. It wd completed with lightning swiftness. Lefty Grimm Is still a prime favor! among the fans of Forbes field. Both and Wright were given the glad hand wh thsy came to bat for the first time in til Corsair half of the second. By the way Wright and Rabbit hand that second base territory, Hans are goinl to see a flock of double plays pulled this summer. That twin killer In the fif was . sven faster than ths on Is ths as ond. In the seventh Inning, everybody stood while t)anny Ntrella's band played The St Spangled Banner. This was an innovation. In the Beds eighth, Caveney with the eon three and one ducked a fast ball inside, t ball hit his bat and a pop fiy to Babbit suited. Caveney was so disgusted thst did not even run to first baas. But for ground rules making every ball hi into the crowd behind the ropes a thr. bagger, Wright would have been credited w a home run in the ninth. This ball travail on a line over Harper's head and bumped against tbe fence after it had squirted unda neath the ropes. It cost the loyail Red Rooters fit aeb make the round trip to Pittsburgh. Thl sum covered admission to ths ball park a hotel accommodations. Yesterday's game wa worth the price. Sammy Bohne ducked an inside pitch the fourth inning and tried to make it appe s lr the hall had hit him on the band. (Tri pire Hart ruled otherwise. Sam then splash a single to left, - Wright made a wonderful pick up snd w on uauhert's tap in the Reds seventh. was a close call at first base but Umpi unariey Moran ruled Jake out. Hart Chandler paid his respects to the lads in the press box. He couldn't miss the first game. Coroner McGregor was also in evidence during the McKechnie presentation. He was recognised and cheered by friends from his own district. Mesdows fanned the first Bedleg to face The weather was made to order for tn opener. The crowd looked to be the large in history of opening games at Forbes Fiel but Pirate officials said no. Stupid play by the Pirates in the thiij when Traynor and Meadows both tried to fiel Harper's bunt with runners on first and se ond. Lack of team work, lads. Nobody cove: ing the hot corner. For today's game, Johnny Morrison wlf holds a victory over the Reds, will be in trl box and he will be opposed by Senor Adoln uque.
