Bold Venture Shocks Form Players

By Sta ving Off Brevity

Indian Broom
Runs Third In
Wild Start Sees Granville
Throw Rider As Brevity
Is Knocked To Knees
(Special) - Before a half crazy Derby
Day crowd of 62,000 frantic turf fans,
Bold Venture, Morton L. Schwartz'
remarkable colt, aided by the worst
sort of interference to Brevity and
Indian Broom in the first furlong,
barely withstood a magnificent
stretch ride on the part of Jockey
Wayne D. Wright to take the 62nd
running of the famed Kentucky
Derby by a scant head.
The start of thc race was held uip
for more than seven minutes as Start-
er Billy Hamilton struggled with The
F"ighter and later with Holl Image
who insisted on breaking through the
Start Rough
The start was decidedly poor and
there was a good deal of crowding as
the field of 14 swept out of the gate.
Granville was squeezed at the very
start and Jockey Jimmy Stout lost
his seat as his mount got away nicely
in :third position.
Brevity, made an even money f a-
vorite by the huge crowd, got away
well, but when Nicky Wall, piloting
Cold Stream, swerved at, the furlong
pole, Jockey Wright was forced to pull
Brevity up short, and the Wide'ner
contender almost went to his knees
as' he lost his stride and was crowd-
ed to the rail.
Bold Venture acted badly at the
barrier and got away eighth but Babe
Hanford, his 18 year old apprentice
pilot, kept him clear of the early
crowding and hung back until Cold1
Stream and He Did, who set the early1
pace, had weakened. Hanford worked
Bold Venture up cautiously and took
the lead at the half.
Makes Brilliant Bid
Indian Broom was all through af-1
ter the three quarters and it looked
like a decisive victory for the son of
St. Germains when Wright, making
a superb bid for his earlier catas-
trophe, eased the brilliant Brevity up
through the field and took to the
whip as he hit the top of the stretch.1
Bold Venture's big lead melted away
as Hanford and Wright fought it outa
in the final sixteenth, but the Wid-
ener entry just missed as Bold Ven-
ture lunged over the line less than aj
neck in front. Bold Venture paid1
$43. His victory was, of course, un-
popular with the crowd.1
Immediately after the race it was
announced that Jockies Hanford,c
Wall and George Burns, who rode In-
dian Broom, had been suspended for<
15 days for rough riding.

Pritchers Are Ke y To Record
Of I -M Ba seball Favorittes

I The injury weakened D~etroit Tigers
hammered out an 8 to 7 victory over
the Athletics today behind thre relief
pitching of Vic Sorrell after School-
boy Rowe was driven from the moundt
ini the second inning by a four-run
Philadelphia rally.
Rowe, _a last-nillte lhurlinmswlec-
tion after he arrived here from V1l
Dorado, Ark., where he attended te
funeral of his father, allowed two h1) ,
one a homer in the first inning to
account for two rnns, and then saw_,
four Athletic runners crossi the 1llt
in the second before he retired in
favor of the bes pecta{cled Sorrell.
Each team slammed out 13 hits ine
the sec-saw affair, with Gerald Walk-
er, Charley Gehringer and Puccinelli
get!ting homners.
Gehringer and A]Suimons .kept
crib-ioken ttheir streak of hits, each
hitting safely for the fifteenth c~on-
Secf'otive gamle. Simimons, after stri k-
ing out twice, got a single inl the
ninth. GJehringer hiad a regular field
day at bat, getting a honier' over
right Field wall in the first, and add-
ing a triple and a single.
Jack Burns, newest Tiger addi-
tion, played Hank Greenberg's posi-
tion flawlessly. and chalked up two
hits and drew a walk in his trips to
the plate.
The hard hitting affair was !
watched by 11.000 Philadelphia fans.
ISorrell allowed the A's seven hits
in as many innings but kept thei I
scattered sufficiently to hold the
home team to one run. in the fifth.
fwhen Puccinelli, still leading the
attack, t iiled to center and scored
when Newsome beat out a hit to
It was Puccinelli's tenth hit in hisl
last 12 timges at bat.!
The Tigers picked up four runs in
the fourth when Burns walked and
scored on Gehringer's triple. Sim-
ins fouled out, but Goslin doubled
to the scoreboard to score Gehringer.
Goslin went to third on Moses'
fumble. Matuzak was replaced by
Dietrich. Walker lired to Johnson
and Goslin scored.

Although intramural softball is only
two weeks old, the handful of teams
that will be fighting it out for the
title in the interfraternity and inde-
pendent leagues could now be picked.l
All that seems necessary is to select
the teams that are fortunate enough
to have a good pitcher or pitchers.
It's the same as in the major
leagues; the team with the best pitch-
ing staff is the hardest to beat.
In looking over the leaders and
outstanding teams in each of the in-
tramural divisions one thing hits
the eye in every instance. The
pitcher is ninety per cent of the
Responsible For Wins
ITake the Psi Us for example. In
the two games they have won so far
all the credit goes to Don Lorch, their
tall, lanky twirler. His ball is not
what can be called a fast one, but he
controls it, and with the change of
pace that he employs he is able to
allow very few hits per game. His
mates, without him pitching would
form just another team in the league,
but with him they are hard to beat.
Last year Dwight Butler twirled
the Physical Eds to the champion-
ship of the independent league and
had no trouble at all, Playing with
them again this year he is able to
pitch nearly hitless ball and strikes
out a majority of the men who face
him with his surprisingly fast de-
livery. Take him out of the lineup
and the Phys Eds could take a place
alongside the Psi U's without Lorch.
Fielding Poor
Of course, give a mediocre pitcher
marvelous support and good hitting
and he will win too, but the teams
that make up the intramural leagues
are sadly lacking in good fieldcrs
or eifective team play as. can be seen
by the large number of errors record-

mowed down the opposing team in
his first game with his fine delivery.
but handled mnany charices in the
field well and hit a home rune and a
trip~le besides.
Shew All-Around Ability
Earl Townsend, D.K.E. moundsnuan,
though beaten in his second game led
his team both at bat and in the,
field. Art Ross was the only reason
why the Phi Delta Theta team was
not given a bad beating in Thursday's
game with Psi U. If he had had good
supp~ort he could have made it a lot
tougher for his opponents, but as it'
was, his five-hit pitching and superb
fielding were of no avail when his
teammates allowed error after error'
to be made.
Give a good pitcher like the Alpha
Delta Phi's Russ Cole oi' Don Mye,
A.T.O. star hurler', a team that can
field with few errors and hit reg-
ularly and that team will take the
crown with the greatest of ease. But
the case being otherwise, these two
pitchers will be the only reasons for
the high positions their squads wil
reach in the standings.

To Lead Big


(By the Associated Press)
Frankie Crosetti of the New York
Yankees, with three hits in four times
at bat in yestei'day's game with the
White Sox, today had moved up to
second position in baseball's Big; Six.
His average of .435 gave hime second
position behind Bill Terry of the
Giants who was inactive yesterday
and still led the pack with an aver-
age of .520. Charley Gehringer of the
Tigers was tied with Rick Ferrell,
Boston Red Sox catcher, both two per-
centage points behind Crossetti while.
Bill Herman of the Cubs and Joe
Moore of the Giants were tied for,
