Baseball fans of the Wichita vi

lay Dumont, president of the ra
ional Semi pro Baseball Congress,
iumont is planning a blackout

o his National tournament at

fame will be played in total dark

ines, players caps and all gloves

Jumont said it will cost about $200

Billy Conn referring to Joe Lou
s as “the big fellow” said: ‘ Sure
can beat him- I am more eon
inced of it than ever. I had him
icked all the way in our first
ight. but got careless in the thir
;eenth round when he hit me.
‘‘The big fellow will be nry next
>pptonent. And he’ll still be cham
pion when T lick him- Nobody
ilse is going to turn this trick.”
Speaking of Lou Nova as Joe’s
Opponent he said: “The big fellow
will stiffen him. Nova is a lead
pipe cinch for a fighter like Louis.
The only way to beat Louis is to
move with him or faster than him
and Nova can’t do that.”
Conn said that every time Louis
hit him it hurt and Johnny Ray,
Conn’s manager said: “I got all
the fight I wanted in that Louis
battle and I have no plans for ac
tion for some time.”
New’ York, Aug. 1 <ANP) Nine
championships will be the feature
of the ninth annual contract cham
pionships of the American Bridge
association to be held this year in
Detroit from August 17 r.o 2’i
Executive secretary Arthur R.
Curiel, in making the announce
ment this week, spoke with high
craise of this year’s hosts, the
GJogginettes club, wjio report every
thing will be in readiness for wbat
Is expected to be the best tourna
ment of the association’s history.
Of outstanding importance and
calculated to be a big attraction is
the novice open pair champion
ship. sponsored this year for the
first time for the benefit of bridge
players who do not feel themsel
ves sufficiently capable of compet
ing against the more expert play
ers. The “Gogginette Trophy for
Novice Open Pairs” will be award
?d to the winner in the form of a
The cream oi the crop, however,
will be locked in competition for
:he masters individual champion
ship. Only top ranking players
according to total master point,
lolding are eligible for this event
Dr. A- M. Curtis of Paterson. N.
1. is last year’s winner and will be
3nitered again in Detroit.
Perhaps by far the largest num
ber of entries will be in the two
open pair championships for mas
ters and for non-masters. This
expectation is based upon the cen
tral location of the host city and
reports of probable attendance
from areas not heretofore repres
ented in the nationals such as New
Orleans. St. Louis, Montgomery,
and Los Angeles. The 1940 win
ner in the open pair were Miss
Hazel Facey and L- A. Fields of
New York City.
Considered one of the favorite
events, is the mixed pair champ
ionships. In previous years this
has been a strong puller of entr
ies. The current champions are
Mrs. Cassie Davis ind G- F. Benoit
of New York City.
Of course, tremendous interest
will probably be shown by the
weaker sex for the woman’s pair
championships won in 1940 by Mrs
Rosanna Johns and Mrs. Eloise
Morris of New York. Because of
the large female membership of
the Gogginettes besides their role
as receptionists, this event is des
tined to draw a considerable local
turn out.
In the team of four play ‘here
is expected to be strong “stop
Chicago” movement in view of the
past successes of the Windy City’s
team- They won in 1937 in Chi
cago, in 1938 at Washington and
in 1940 at Atlanta where they
took the Dr- Jose N. Cesteros
trophy out of competition. O. A.
Mcore, Lawrence Buser. James P.
Holt and Oliver Landry, last years
winners, will be there battling to
the end.
The othier events will be the
men’s pair, non-masters; and the
men’s pair masters. Two legs on
the trophy for the latter event are
held by Leon A- Jones. Washing
ton; Joseph Niles, New York City;
and Charles Shipley of Baltimore.
Last year’s winner were Dr. J. A.
Pierce of Atlanta and Tom M
Griffin of New York City.

Well folks the ole Coo-Coo clock
sittin’ on th»e mantle keeps tickin’
away fast and faster and the
starting time to the Central Stat
es Tourney keeps getting short
and shorter and us dubbers and
slicers and hookers keep working
hard and harder. Yass the way
that minute hand keeps chasing
the hour hand around this old time
piece is something terrifc. But
we shall be ready for the visitors
when the time comes. Anne
Howe! This is the 10th of August
1941 B. T. (Before Tournament)
In two short weeks the skies over
the Johnny Goodman links will be
dimmed with the swooping, whizz
ing and whirring little white pel
lets. In this the greatest of all
Sepia golfing wars of the Central
States Area, all goffing guys and
gals in their vari-colored goffmo
biles from various villages and
golflets of our goffing golfdom
will be here togged out in the very
latest sport attire. There will be
shiny silver trophies emblematic
of victory and golfing perfection.
There will be dainty and refresh
ing food stuff to appease those ap
petites of the great open space.
Then we shall dance in the beauti
ful setting of the Fontenelle Pav
ilion and sing “Let’s Go Out to the
Golf Links” (wihile we are already
there) Then after golfing hours
we shall dance some more at the
Silver Trophy Dance to be given
at the Dreamland and later on
and before we shall partake of
Pepsi Cola. Root Beer and other
cola and soda and play games.
Those Fellers from the Peepuis
Store down town sure did get a
kick out of their goff game. Com
ing up to No- 3 at Elmwood Sun
day one of them wanted to know
“What kind of a ball game is this
anyway, when you can’t win wit
“per”?” Another asked “Per”
what?” and he says “Per 4”. The
per 4 guy kept watching herb <as
a lot of players will be doing be
fore the tournament is over.) So j
after “Per 4” dubbed his drive in
to the bushes off of No. 6. He
persuaded Herb through the use
of some store talk, to shoot his
(per 4’s) second shot. And Herb
being the good golfer that he is.
laid the ball dead at the pin, an’
Per 4 got a birdie 3. Naturally
the other 4 players in his group
were suspicious at per 4’s sudden
from 10’s to birdies. But while
Herb was helping his friend in dL
tress, the Dubber, dubbed in three
birdies in a row for both sendy
cakes and girdie cakes- So one
of the fellows from Peepuis Store
says to Herb: “See. that’s what
you get trying to play two games
at once ”
The Dubber wishes to individ
ually and collectively thank thp
naborhood business men for their
wholehearted cooperation and al
most 100 percent backing of our
golfgram. It is indeed encourag
ing to know that they are cooper
ating with such a fine group of
outdoor sportsmen as is represent
| ed by the Central States group.
