Other crowns went, to two Indiana youngsters, and one each went to Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Louisiana. Jimmy Clark of Jamestown, N.O Y.. winner of the 160-pound title I , , was the star of the three day j tourney, winning his five matches by knockouts. The New York, colored lad, win- rier of the National A. A. U. welterweight title a year ago, put on added poundage and was forced into the 160 -pound division this year. Sweeney Defeated Burley. He dominated the class and had no trouble in any of his matches, although he was off his feet a minute hefore knocking out Paul Frazier, Chicago, colored lad, in the opening session to take the cham pionship. Pittsburgh's fighting Irishman, Leo Sweeney, won the decision over his fellow townsman, Charley Bur-ley, colored, to annex the 147-pound title. It was the seventh bout for the pair, including matches in the Pittsburgh district, and Sweeney was the victor in each. The new welter champion displayed a great left hand and punches his way to a clear-cut victory. The eight title holders won their way through the ranks of about 25,000 starters, coming up here tonight with the highest of the amateur honors. About 8,000 fans packed Public Halt, where the Republican national convention will be held in June, for the championships. Thirty-two boys took part in the semifinals tonight and then the winners met for the titles in eight divisions. Jackie Wilson, six-foof Cleveland colored boy. won the 112-pound title by outpointing Jimmy Urso of Detroit, Mich. Long Keach Helps. Wilnon towered a foot over his foe, and used his long reach to advantage. Wilson, Golden Gloves champ of Cleveland and Chicago, had little the better of the argument, however. William Joyce, colored boy Jun ior High school student of Gary, Ind., captured the 118-pound title, with a decision over Clifford Ked Elk, student at the Chilocco (Okla.) Indian school. Joyce almost closed one of the Indian's eyes with a right-hand punch in the opening minutes and won handily. Joe Church of Batavia, N. Y was a gory 126-pound champion at the finish of his three-rounder with Rudy Oden, Los Angeles cabinetmaker. Opens ('ut Over Ieft F.ye. Oden, a left-hander, opened a big cut over Church's left eye in the first round, and blood flew throughout the fight. Church had a healthy edge at the finish, despite his appearance. Tommy Pallatin, South Bend Ind.) factory worker, climbed to the 135-pound championship by pounding a decision over Verdi Verne Fatterson, Chicago colored lad. Tallatin lost the first round, but came back strong and floored the Chicagoan for a short count in the third round. Patterson displayed a neat left hand. Scores Fifth Kayo. Clarke, winner of the welter title a vear aeo. knockprl nut Paul Frazier, Chicago's colored Golden Gloves champion, in the first round to win the 160-pound laurels. It was his fifth straight knockout of the tourney, all his matches ending in kayoes. Frazier had Clarke on the floor for a short count a minute before Clarke came back strong to knock him cold. Burley reached the 147-pound finals with a third round technical knockout over Vincent Solders of Baltimore when Solders suffered a bad cut over his left eye. The injured youth begged to continue, but the referee said "no." Sweeney Defeats King. Sweeney gave Howell King, Detroit colored boy, a boxing lesson to gain the 147-pound finals.

THREE RECORDS SET Chicago Natators Show Way to Others With 16 Points. NEW YORK, April 17. (.TV-Swimmers from the Lawson Y. M. C. A. of Chicago, Brooklyn Central and Tulsa, Okla., waged a three-way struggle for team honors today in the first half of the two-day international Y. M. C. A. indoor swimming championship program. The Chicago team won only one of the five finals tonight, but piled up enough points in the other places to take first place in the team scoring with 16 points, two more than Brooklyn, where the meet was staged. Tulsa swimmers walked off with two titles to take third place with 12 points. The point scoring was as follows: Lawson, Chicago, 16; Brooklyn Central. 14; Tulsa, Okla., 12; York, Pa., 6; Huntingdon, Ind., 1; Downtown "Y.," Pittsburgh. 3; Flushing. N. Y., 3; Jamaica, N. Y., 2; Westside, N. Y., 2; New Rochelle, N. Y., 1. Three Records Set Three new meet records were established, due to changes which increased the distances for each event. Brooklyn Central's quartet established a mark of 3:44 in winning the 400-yard relay, which replaced the 200-yard event. Ludwig Harman of- Tulsa captured the 150-yard backstroke increased from 100 yards in 1:45.1 and Jerald Rudig of Huntington, Ind., set up a mark of 5:04.9 for the 440-yard free style, formerly 400 yards. Entries from the Pittsburgh district didn't fare so well, with only the Downtown Branch Y edging into the scoring column with three points thanks to the fine showing of Russ Lindberg, who captured second place in the 150-yard backstroke event, being beaten out by Ludwig Harman of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Walter Nowatney of the Alle- ! gheny Y. M. C. A., also of Pitts- j burgh, set the pace in the fourth heat of the 50-yard free style with a mark of 0:24.9, but failed to qualify by one-tenth of a second as five others in previous heats had better times. Decide On Best Time. With representatives of 22 institutions competing, the trial heats, decided on a best-time basis, produced better performances than the finals in the other two events. Ray Watson of Tulsa led home a field of 25 in the 200-yard breast stroke trials in 2:31 flat, then bested the other, three survivors in the final in the comparatively slow time of 2:37.1. Gordon Cornelius of Lawson, Chicago, the National Y. M. C. A. 50-yard champion, qualified for the semi-finals of his specialty in the good time of 24.2 seconds. Then he eased up a trifle to win his second heat in 24.5. and was clocked in 24.6 in the final as he bested Stanley Rose of Brooklyn.

Ford Christopher Frick, president of the National League, was a Pittsburgh visitor yesterday. He was a dinner guest last evening of President .Bill Benswanger of the Pirates. Later Frick departed for his headquarters in New York City. -The league executive was disappointed when the game had to be postponed because of cold weather. However, business matters required his attention in the East. He saw the Cubs and Cardinals in action at St. Louis and also attended Thursday's contest at Cincinnati. He expects to watch some engagement on Pittsburgh so'l in the near future. While at the ball park yesterday, Frick took occasion to visit the home clubhouse and give a little talk about the new rule which provides a penalty of $10 for players who are found fraternizing with members of an opposing club. He told the boys it would be perfectly all right for them to be friends with their rivals, but such ac quaintances might be cultivated off the diamond. He explained that when the athletes get into their uniforms, they are expected to consider themselves ready to put their hearts into the work of trying to win. For that reason it was decided to assess a penalty whenever a member of one team is seen exchanging handshakes with his enemies on the playing field. Frick is not inclined to regard the mixup between Dick Bartell of the Giants and Van Mungo of the Dodgers, as much of a fight. "One player swung at the other and missed," he ' declared, "and the NET STARS PLAY AT WHITE SULPHUR W. M. Hall to Witness Annual Tourney.

If the case warrants, any players who become involved in genuine scraps, will draw saltier penalties, but it always will be necessary to be governed by circumstances leading up to the fisticuffs."

BETHLEHEM, Pa., (JB Three national April 17. champions passed from the American Olympic final wrestling tryouts today, one after suffering his second straight defeat and the others defaulting as the starting field of 134 contestants was reduced to 98. The accumulation of five bad marks, which amounts to automatic elimination, dashed the hopes of 30 contestants, but the routing of George Belshaw, National A. A. U. 158-pound title holder, and the defaults of Ted Anderson and Wayne Martin, 123-pound and 134-Dound National collegiate cham pions, respectively, from Oklahoma, were the biggest surprises as the competition reached the half way mark. Meet Ends Tonight. Seventeen victims were added to the 13 eliminated last night and four others, in addition to Martin and Anderson dropped out of the tournament which will end tomorrow night, Martin reported an injured leg, and Anderson was declared ineligible because he was eight pounds overweight. Belshaw's elimination was achieved by Orton Woodhead of the Los Angeles Athletic Club, who flattened the A. A. U. title holder with an arm lock in six minutes. The defeat of Belshaw leaves Ben Bishop of Bethlehem, national Y. M. C. A. monarch and 1934 college king, and Frank Lewis of Oklahoma A. & M., outstanding among the 158-pound survivors. Lewis won his first two bouts by falls, while Bishop threw his first opponent and gained the unanimous decision in the second for one bad mark. An Impressive Performance. The most impressive performance in the 145-pound division was turned in by Harley (Doc) Strong, Oklahoma A. & Ms national collegiate champion. Strong achieved a fall over Wilbur Gholoson of the University of North Carolina last night in 40 seconds and today moved into the third round by pinning the formidable Dale Goings of Chicago in 4:32 with a body lock and chin hold. Oaifson Johnson of the Univer sity of Minnesota, who gained fame last night by throwing Walter Jacob, N. C. A. A. 158-pound champion, finished in the under position today in his bout with Ed Knight of Oklahoma, succumbing to a bar and chancery in 5:18. Competition among 15 contenders in the 191-pound class got under way with the leading prospect Ray Clemons of Oklahoma Central Teachers, N. C. A. A. title holder, drawing a first round bye. Roy Dunn of Oklahoma A. & M., national A. A. U. heavyweight champion, achieved the quickest fall. He threw Andy Lhota of Pittsburgh in 2:05 with a body hold.
