Tex., May All-Southwest Conference baseball se- lections by Curtis Vlnson. director of publicity at Texas A. M. College, are as follows: First Taylor Mooty pitchers; Garvcy and Meyers catchers; Jacks first base: McDowell (Texas) second base; Connclley third base; Anken- man shortstop; Harston left field: Koy center field: Sodd right field. Sec- ond Kroncy and Schcer pitchers; Blanton (Texas) and Clem catchers; Price first base; Van Viebig second base: Tay- lor third base: Mitchell shortstop: LOewcnsteln left field; Donovan center field; Gannon right field. Although they won no championships during tho school year the Texas Ag- flles had a fairly consistent Southwest Conference athletic record for that period. They finished fourth in foot- ball, third In basketball, second In track, third In baseball, second In cross country and second in swimming. The Cadets did not participate In the conference golf and tennis tourna- ments. The Aggies also defeated the University of Texas LonEhornn In the only intercollegiate water polo gamo of the season for this section. It -wouldn't be surprising If Frank G. Anderson. Texas Aggie trade coach, fa- awarding the annual conference track championship on a percentage basis as the football, basketball and baseball banners aro awarded. Instead of presenting It to tho winner of the conference meet. The Aggies met the Longhorns In track throe times during tho piwt season. They defeated the Steers In a dual meet and tied with them In a triangular meet with the Blco Institute Owls. And on ft dual meet basis, the Aggies would have dc- Joated the Longhorns by a margin of 2 points in the Conference meet. The Texas Aggies probably will enter throe men In the national intercol- legiate track meet to be held at Chi- cago June 16-17. according to Coach Anderson. Boyce (Honk) Irwln, of Kcsse probably will enter the shot and discus and John Herring of Cuero the Hurdles. A third man Is yet to be selected. Irwln now holds the South- west Conference shot put record. He also has hurled tno discus better than 150 feet on numerous occasions. Herr- ing is tho Aggies' best bet In both the high and low barrier event. Invitations are being mailed this week by Texas Aggie athletic officials to high school coaches over the state, Inviting them to attend tho fourth annual coaching school to be held at Texas A. M. College Aug. 20-26. Football courses will be conducted by MacUson Hell. Aggie head coach: John A. Pierce, coach of the 1032 Corslcatia High School state intersch-olasttc champions, and Jack Slsco. coach or the 1932 North Texas 8. T. C. eleven which won the Lone Star Conference championship. Bell will stress fundamentals and the short punt system. Pierce will lecture on the double wing back .formation nnd Slsco will discuss spinners and shifting. Prank G. Anderson. John B. Reid and Roswcll Hlgglnbotham, all Aggie coach- es, will conduct cotirses in track, bas- ketball and baseball, respectively. W.

CAMBRIDGE, May tho meet's two rccovd-lircnkliiK exploits to others and conceding the individual spotlight to Princeton's Bill Bontliron, double winner in tlic classic 800 and runs. Southern California's Trojans romped off with tlic Intercollegiate A. A. A, A. track and field championship toilny, for llic fourth strnls'l't year Tho Trojans, tutored by the veteran Dean Cromwell, captured only one first place, but they scored In 10 of the 15 events, piled up 45 points and gained a much-desired triumph over their arch-rlvats from the West Const, Stanford, which finished second with 42 points. Southern California's sixth team vlc- :ory. since 1925, was so close and hard- fouzht, however, that It took the final event to decide the issue. With the two West Coast teams deadlocked, Charley Parsons. Trojan sprinter, came through In the 200-meter dash to win ;hird place and collect the three points that clinched the meet. Eastern teams, as well as representa- tives of the South and Mid-West, failed to figure In the team battle. Cornell. Yale and New York University wound up in a tie for third place, wish 13 solnts each. Two records were smashed as John >yman of Stanford achieved 52 feet, inches in the shot put, surpassing the listed world record as well as wip- ing out the former I. C. A. A. A. A. mark, and George Spitz of New York University cleared 6 feet, 6; inches to set a new meet standard In tlic high Jump, but the chief Individual Honors went to Bill Bonthron. Princeton's superb foot-racer, the only double victory of the day regis- tered two of the finest performances n the 57-year history of the meet. Al- though he failed to touch any exist- ng records, he was not far short of them as he romped to vic- tory in 3 minutes, 54 seconds, then came back little more than an hour atcr to win the 800-meter final in 1 minute, 53.5 seconds, leaving Ben East- nan. Stanford captain, floundering In ils flying wake, among others. Bonthron finished ft good five yards ahead of Cornell's captain, Joe Man- gan. In the run, with Prank rowley, Manhattan star, third. The TJjier ace, duplicating his burst of trctch speed, came from behind again o beat Dunaway of Penn State by hrcc yards in the 800. Eastman, far 'ram his championship form of two previous years, as the result of a veaV.encd leg. finished fourth. Just be- hind Pongrace of Michigan State. Eastman's defeat, in his hard-luck arewell to I. C. A, A. A. A. competl- lon. was the mildest kind of an upset by comparison to the totally -unex- pected and decisive defeat of black- mlred Joe McCluskey ol Fordham, for liree years the iron man of college distance tracks and considered Just ibout unbeatable. McCluskey met his Waterloo in little Jack Ryan of Man- iattan College, who passed tho Ford- ham star to the amazement of a crowd jf 15 000 in tho back-stretch of the ast lap and left Joe floundering with brilliant finish in the Ryan, won by 20 yards as McCluskoy, Indlng himself finable to match strides flth his sandy-haired rival in. stretch, nearly collapsed the end wltt lomo barely staggered home to save nccond place from the rush of New York Uni- versity's George Barker. Although Eastern teams had the sat- isfaction of winning eight of the 15 Individual titles outright, besides shar- ing In another, their hopes suffered a setback when Jimmy Luvalle. flashy sophomore runner from the University of California at Los Angeles, raced off with the 400-moter final in tho bril- liant time of 46.9 seconds. Luvalle ran a front race all the way to beat How- ard Jones of Pennsylvania by three yards and Karl Warner, Yale ace. by four. Not even the sweep of Stanford's Giants In the weight events and the fine performances of the low hurdlers. Herbert and Meier, In placing Jlrst and third In the 200-meter low hurdles final, could pull the Indians over the handicap of a poor showing in the track events. Lyman. the record-breaker, "Sllnger" Dunn and "Nejlle" Gray col- lected 11 points In the shot put. Henri Laborde. with a winning throw of 162 feet, 1014 Inches, and Dunn 'and Gray gathered 11 more points In the discus, The only champion to retain his title outright was Pete Zaremba of New York University In the hammer throw, although Bill Graber of Southern Cali- fornia shared to'p honors In the pole vault for the second straight year. The complete point totals: Southern California 45; Stanford 12; Cornell.

Javelin by Odcll, Man- hattan, 205 feet Vz Inch; second, Wil- liamson, Southern California, 204 feet The boys in the east aro trying to work up a case against the -New York Yankees, present monarcbs of the base- ball industry. They are inclined to take it for granted that because the present world champions haven't run away from tlie field; almost at the start, that all the preseason predictions might as well be scrapped. Tho Yankees themselves are going to have something to say about that be- fore very long. Because they've start- ed slowly -the American League as a whole can give thanks, interest in the marathon being sustained that much longer. But you'll notice tho present tltloholdera have been In or close to first place all of the time. It they con do that well while figuratively stagger- ing along on one leg It doesn't require advanced mathematics to determine that they'll do far better when they get two legs to move on. Don't Worry About Babe! Tho big reason for tho tendency to broadcast, that the Yanks are slipping. Is that tho mighty Babe Ruth Isn't quite so mighty as when he helped to annllhllatB the Cubs In the World Sc- ries of last fall. Mr. Buth is important, but doesn't make up the entire Yank attack. Give him a little time to oil up his aged Joints with dashes of hot water and he'll probably come through. And even If the magnetic Babe should suddenly' find himself forced out by Infirmities it Is a pretty good bet that the Yanks still would carry on to their third straight pennant under Joe Mc- Carthy. Mr. Ruth IB not the only Yankee who has been taking his time about squaring off. Tho pitchers have been similarly backward, notably Vern Gomez, the slim southpaw who for some unknown reason Is referred to in the prints as tho goofy Castlllan. Gomez Is about as goofy as a fox. The Yanks until re- cently had to get along without Johnny Allen, who was engaged In rlddlnc his system of flu germs. Allen, after nil, Is Just about the prize of McCarthy's staff, but he hasn't been ballyhoaed. McCarthy Is Optimistic McCarthy, who is one of tho few managers not afraid to tell what's what, concedes that the Yankees have been feeling their way. "They'll get to going shortly and there's nothing to worry about." says he. And if McCarthy were at all wor- ried he certainly wouldn't have ped- dled a pretty fair pitcher like George Plpgras to the Red Sox. McCarthy made that sale at a time when he was having to depend almost entirely on rookie pitchers, so he must have had a lot of confidence of tho future so far as mound performances were con- cerned. Home Runs Count And don't think that McCarthy docs not have confidence In the borne run ability of his boys. Ho has a lot of them "besides Ruth and Gehrlg. There are a half dozen for whom the Yankee Park, with Its short foul Hues, is made to order, A pitcher can hold them to n, few hits, bxit invariably one of those hits will be a homer at the right time and it will do more damage than the visitors can accomplish with a dozen singles. FINANCIERS MEET INFANTRY TODAY Bob Towery will take his hard hit- ting Magnolia Financiers out to Mon- chus Field Sunday afternoon and start- ing at 3 o'clock will pit them against the strong Ninth Infantry team of the Army Post League, The semi-pros are playing three good games this week.

HIGH SCHOOL LEAGUE REPEALS GRID DATE (By Associated AUSTIN, Tex., May Roy B. Henderson, atalctlc director for the University of Texas Interscliolasttc League, announced today that the ex- ecutive- committee had revoked .the rule prohibiting league football games to be played prior to the last Friday SPARROW MCGANN (Copyright. .1933, Consolidated Press) NEW YORK, May two Maxes, Schmcllng and Baer, aro bum actors. This goes double for the latter, who Is said to have turned down several offers from Hollywood to show his handsome mug and physique on the screen. Schmellng la Just a bit better. He has done one picture "Love In the and this probably accounts for the fact that as a- fighter in training for a big bout he plays the role better than Baer, Those who have seen the two big fel- lows go through their usual paces got the Impression that the fight sched- uled for Juno 8 in Yankee stadium might Just as well bo two years away Instead of two weeks. The lack of Interest and action In the training, camps has been explained at last, and we are supposed to be- lieve that the boys were fooling all the time and hiding their true form from spies. If this Is true it may prove a boomerang when It comes time to turn on the heat and get warmed up In earnest. Carelessness in training may become a habit hard, to correct when one attempts to get down to the busi- ness of beating the other fellow to the punch. N No big fight has been without some sort of hocus-pocus for the purpose of ballyhoo.- So far the publicity on the Baer-Schmellng fight has been flat. blast the. idea that Jack can-ever hope to make a come-back something Dcmpsey has been coy about admitting. Carelessness in training is nothing new, Jesse Wlllard had so much con- tempt for Dempsey because of the dif- ference in size and weight tbat he wore out a rocking chair and several planks of the porch as he contemplated the next big display his circus stunts. Meanwhile Dempsey was burn- ing up tho road and battering his sparring mates and when ho landed one of his steaming left hooks on- the giant's chin. Wlllard did not get over his stunned surprise until the referee declared Dempsey the new champion. In this case both Bacr and Schmcling have put on the brakes. This makes it even up. with the edge going to the man who snaps out of it more quickly. In every way save in boxing, the two men appear In splendid condition. Careful preparation for the fight long before the opening of training quar- ters accounts -for this, and had they boxed in earnest, even though they have the poorest set of sparring part- ners seen in a long time. they, could live up to the forecast of one ol the most bruising heavyweight battles since the Dempsey-Flrpo heart qulckener. It nan been long time since two more evenly matched fighters were thrown into the ring together. Schmel- Ing has the edge in experience and hits out stralghter than his opponent.

For more than a week, while 75 millimeter guns blasted away in tanret practice on tho Camp Keiirny range, Marines tiptoed down the company street for fear of disturbing the bird, which had made a nest In an unused tent and laid flvB eggs. When time came to break camp, a "hard boiled" sergeant, recent- ly returned from fighting Nicara- bandits', lurnlshed a solution. He made up a detail of volunteers, built a bird house, and the linnet, and her eggs wera transferred to it. Then the tent was struck -and the battery was ready to roll. Race Last Year in Which! Jumps Made From Last To First Heartening A year ago this week the Pittsburgh j Pirates vacated last place In the Na- i tlonal League after a tenancy of three i weeks. In one week's time they Jumped j from eighth to fourth, in which place j they stayed a week before rising to I third, for a three weeks' residence Two weeks were spent in second place, anc" j on July 3 tlie Pirates went Into first j place, there to remain until Aug. 11. This experience of the Pirates did much to sustain the Cubs after they fell Into the seventh place hole In mid-May this season. Every time thej would start feeling hopeless they would j recall that a year earlier the Pirates had been In last place, then had risen to first In six weeks. Let's Stop at Aujtust Of course, the Cubs don't want to follow tlie Pirates' footsteps beyond the first week in August. But it waf heartening to think that a club could rise from last to first In the time be- tween May 20 and July 3. Strangely enough, the Cubs In their grief rarely reflected on tliclr own rec- ord or early 1032. After the second week the Cubs never sank lower than second place and were out of first place only five weeks. Yet when they recalled what miracles had to bo wrought for them to win the pennant after sagging six and one-half games back of the pirates In July, they found loss solace in reflecting on their one flight fluctuation than In the maximum rise of the Pirates during tlio first half of the season, Cubs In Every Spot Tho Cubs this season have spent at least a clay In every position of the league, counting their opening day victory in which they shared leader- ship with other winners of the sea- son's inaugural games. It is improb- able, howcvr, that they will approach the week by week fluctuation of the 1933 Brooklyn Dodgers, who finished tho season 'in third place. the first week of the season the Dodgers were in a tie with Boston for first place and in the second week they suffered a sharp drop to seventh. A week later they were lust, then seventh for a week, and up In fourth for a couple of weeks In mid-June. In the week cneing June 7 they bogged down to seventh, but rose rap- idly, so that they Joined the Cubs in early August In passing tho Pirates, j while the Pirates were losing 11 out of 12. In the month of September, how- ever, tho top clubs were Cubs, first: Pirates, second; Dodgers, third, and Phillies, fourth, with no flxictuatlon in the ratings during tlio final month in so far as position was concerned, H-2-O BOWLING CLUB.

It was a close match and kept both teams hustling all the time. Both teams are now in a deadlock, having won three games each, so a return match will be arranged In the near fu- ture, to be played at Solms alleys, near New Braunfels. The high bowlers for both teams were Capt. Bill Wetz of the Solms' team, with a 226-593 scries, and Capt. Jesse Fletcher of the Junior Chamber of Commerce team, with a 224-572 series.

Hal Tlcc's new English-style short-track motorcycle racing program, will buzz again this week at Harlan- dale Speedway for the thrill seeker's edlfacatton. The card this week calls for 15 races of five laps or one mile, and one match race between Rural Murry. lo- cal champion and Pat Pursley of Los Angeles. Many "bike" fans are Just waking up to the fact that Rural Mur- ry is a holder of several national titles. The Indian Motorcycle Agency of this city is now exhibiting Murry'8 proof of his honors and many folks are dropping around to take a look at Murrys trophies. This Is one reason for his surprise win two weeks a.go. It was surprising to all. but the veterans of the trail, and to them. It was a natural answer to Murry's experience and skill on the "frail" puddle Jump- ers. Johny Seymour of Los Angeles bemoaning his misfortune last week. Johnny was running high and hand- some when he blew the side of his engine out and the connecting rod. became a pretzel, due to high com- pression, so without a good bike. John- ny was weeping bitter tears on the handle-bars. This gave Seymour a chance to get his new bike In time to enter It In 773 i this week's speed events.

Cloo- i in names will be fixed up by new How many strokes does the five or six months winter lay-off add to your score? Chick Evans and Art Sweet tell me that the enforced vacation piles up about six additional strokes on their first two or three rounds. After their first three or four rounds they are usually back or very close to being on their regular game. If first class amateurs like Chick and Art notice a difference of six strokes. It is very conceivable that the average golfer will be off his game in the spring by at least 10 or 12 strokes. Even as great a golfer as Walter Ha- gen says he can notice a three-day lay- off In his own game. So, If your first few rounds are disappointing, don't get mad. It is a very natural condition. The Cincinnati Reds were the most In the league. They the second week in consistent team were last from June on. Now Go Back to 1929 And speaking of fluctuation: The Cubs In 1929 weren't out of first place In any weekly recapitulation after July 13; tho Pirates weren't out of second place during the same time; the Giants weren't out of third for any weekly summary after June 22, and the Cardinals were constantly In TEN YEARS AGO TODAYS May 22, Senator Jimmy Walker nS New York, father of box- Ing in the Empire State, arrived in Chicago to attend a banquet given In his honor by the National Sports Aliiance. Ecnnie Leonard, the light- weight champion, accompanied him. (Copyright, 1933, Publishers Syndicate) fourth place for the iants were In third. Except for one stretches, when the' same period the and two day were displaced jy the New York Giants, the Pirate? Imve been continuously In first place since the first week of the present season. This has not stimulated busi- ness at Pittsburgh and It certainly lasn't helped any In Chicago and St. Louis.
