0 league champions
As the baby of the circuit, South Sides baseball
squad was generally expected to serve as the
Prep Leagues doormat for a season or two
before it got down to business. But evidently
you can't keep a good dcorrnat down, for the
Green and White upstarts tripped veteran Prep
nines with monotonous regularity, and now
have a strangle-hold on the title in Missouri'S
strongest high-school league.
Ed Rudd, Brother lames Powers' veteran nurn-
ber one hurler, is the chief projectile which little
David South Side used to floor Goliath Prep
League. He mastered Western twice, 10-2 and
9-U, handed C.B.C. a double dose, ll-lO and
74, and laid St. Louis among the sweetpeas,
4-2, on one hit. Rudd, catcher Larry Schulte,
shortstop Red Travis and third-baseman Bob
Wagner have professional baseball prospects

South Sides dazzling "remote control

of age or prestige during the past sea-
son. The Dragon Pups walked away
with the Soulard Community Center
Title and City Championship in their
ln schaastic pfry, they rrvrae fx habif
of rczrzping over their opposition, ever
going so far as to knock off an occa-
sional varsity quintet. They defeated
a sodality five composed of players
over twenty years of age. Bro. Gerard
Busch was their coach.

Making the most of the new gymnasiurrz, the
freshmen and sophomores organized the schools
first intramural basketball leagues this year.
With Brother Anthony Gerhardt in the role of
guiding light and Hludge Landis," the fledglings
played in three divisions: the frosh Midgets, the
frosh Minims, and the sophomores.
In the Minim class, lD grabbed the title with six
victories and but one defeat. 1C lapped the
Midget field with seven wins and a single loss.
The sophomore championship found its way to
ZA, with a five-and-one record. lim Devine, Ben
Exler and Owen Lang were high-point men in
the various leagues.

france laux trophy
France Laux, popular KMOX
sports announcer, has offered
a huge gold trophy to the
Prep League baseball cham-
pion. Brother Dan has a
freshman employed steadily,
keeping a spot in the Athletic
office dusted to receive it.
Bob Wagner, Dragon third'
sacker, has attracted the at-
tention of Charlie Barrett,
famous St. Louis Cardinals'
scout, who is very much in-
terested in him as a Bed Bird
possibility. Bob, a junior, is
the fourth varsity player with
The junior varsity baseball squad, which should
furnish the bulk of next year's varsity, has been
entered in the Spalding-South Side Intermediate
Muny League, where it will play as the "Carl and
Ruby Markets" team. loe Brueggemann '39 will
manage the nine in the league.
Long-range hitting and plenty of it is this teams
trademark. ln three games it has banged out a
total of ninety-seven safeties, making thirty-nine
in a single contest.
Brother Dan, the iayvees' coach, attributes their
terrific punch to the fact that they spend hours in
batting practice while other teams are devoting
these same hours to fielding grounders. But his
team doesn't hit many grounders, so the opposi-
tion gets little chance to use its fielding skill!
