Fans believe Manager O. A. Pickens has been saving Bass for this occasion. The midget lel't- himder has had a long rest and f)'"uud be ready to go tomorrow night. So should Bill Ellis. He has ijuened only five innings during the tournament. Should the Road Runner starting pitcher fail to last, Bulla will have Daney, Stegman, Stewart, and 'a .ite ready to throw into the affray. He will not take any chances as he has in past games. Tonight's contest should be even End well played. Both teams have two losses and will be fighting to stay in the running. The winner will have a real opportunity to get in the money. Starting pitchers are unknown, although both Blair and Johnson will be ready for Huber. The Merchants may try to send Ccstello back to the mound against the carbon sluggers. It takes pitching to win baseball tournaments, as team managers now realize. Busby's Indians went out of the tournament because they had only Lefty Carroll. Amarillo *s West Texans had only Joe Mc- .Knight and the Amarillo Merchants have only John Costcllo. Read Runners, Phillips, Coltexo find Huber entered with strong pitching staffs and are in the running strong. Davis ss Mauldin 3b Warren If Malloy 2b Stephenson cf Hess rf-p Cl.

At Dallas, the Missions bombarded southpaw Charlie Barnabe from the mound in the second inning to win. G to 1. The Buccaneers an- j qhorccl at Port Worth and bombarded the Cats for a 9 to 3 decision. It was nothing for San Antonio to smother the Steers. Inspired by the seven-hit pitching of tall Abe Miller, the Missions, after losing five consecutive games to Galveston, really enjoyed themselves as they pounded Barnabe and Southpaw Fred Stiely for ten hits. C. A. Jonnard and- Dick Whitworth shouldered the pitching burden for Port Worth but could not carry the load.

As a result, the Detroit lead had been reduced to 5Vi games today and the Yankees' position looked somewhat more hopeful as they moved into the fourth contest witli two more of the younger generation, Johnny Murphy and Eldcn Aukcr, slated for motuid duty. Broaca, although he allowed ten hits, had control yesterday and Tommy Bridges, -who opposed him, did not. That was the deciding factor of the contest. The crowd as well as the result was in distinct contrast to that of Tuesday when Detroit won two games. Instead of 80,000 fans, only about 15,000 were present on a drab afternoon. Adverse weather forced the National league leaders, the Giants, to spend six hours in dividing a double bill with Pittsburgh. They won, 5 to 4. and then Pittsburgh replied with a 4 to 3 triumph. The Giants remained four games ahead of the idle Cubs and Pittsburgh a game behind Boston. Another National league doubleheader resulted in an even break when the last-place Reds belted Van Mungo, Brooklyn's star pitcher, for a 7 to 5 decision in the. opener and the Dodgers retaliated by win- 2 0 |ning, 5 to 4. 0 0 j The Athletics downed tlie White " " Sox twice with the aid of timely home runs to make it five in a row.

The Tulsa Oilers dug deeper into the first division by taking the hustling Houston Buffalos, 9 to 2. Skipper Jake Atz had his Oilers fired up for the opening game of the scries.

LTORS PIRATES TO LEAVE WITH n COAGH SOON FOR GRID TRASIPG Mentors Bronson and Smith To Take 25 Boys, Most Of Whom Are Light. Twenty-five members of the Le- Fors high school football squad, accompanied by Coach Bill Bronson and Francis Smith and several Le- Fors citizens, will leave Sunday morning for Ruidosa, N. M., where a football training camp will be conducted for at least 10 days. Head Coach Bronson has been in LeFors for a week and has held five practice sessions. Assistant Coach Smith arrived yesterday afternoon and assisted with practice upon arrival. Thirty boys were in uniform, but five of them will be [eft in LeFors because of their small iizc. The team will be light this year, Coach Bronson said. The biggest boy on the squad weighs only 175 pounds, while the smallest boy tips the scales at 113 pounds. The material is green and LeFors is the i underdog in the section, composed of LeFors, McLean, Clarendon, arid Miami. Coach Bronson is a graduate of Nebraska university, where he was quarterback for three years, one year receiving All-American mention. He later coached in Califor- British Woman In Tennis Meet FOREST HILLS, N. Y., Aug. 16. (/P) — The 47th national women's tennis championship, in the quarter-final stage, today resulved itself into a meeting of two of tills country's ablest stars against a pair of British title-seekers with the prospects of a dual victory for the home uard. The American players were Sarah Palfrey of Brookline, Mass., and Carolin Babcock, o£ Los Angeles, whose opponents ware Freda James and Katherine Stammers, respectively. Tile little New England star was conceded an easy victory over the frail but courageous Miss James, but Miss Babcock was only a slight favorite over Miss Stammers. The two other quarter - final matches found Helen Jacobs, who is bidding for her third straight national title, paired against Elizabeth Ryan, the California veteran who lives in England, and Dorothy Andrus of Stamford, Conn., matching strokes with Baroness Maude Lev! of Minden, Ncv. Somethings not listed as sure things are: That Beau Bell, current batting leader, will continue in front. He is getting stiff competition from Chester Morgan, San Antonio cen- terfielder, and Alex Hooks. That Bell will not retain his lead in total hits. His two for five last night gave him a total of 182, only two in front of Morgan who went three for nothing. That Rudy York, now inactive, will pace the league in home runs. He has 26 but that will not last for Bell has 24, and Paul "Pound 'Em" Easterling, Tulsa leftfielder, got one last night to give him 24. That Larry Bettencourt, San Antonio leftfielder, will lead in runs batted in. Larry has been in front several weeks. He batted in one last night to raise his total to 110. English, Galveston's middle cushion guardian, is giving Larry a race. He batted in one last night to raise his average to 101. Or that Bell will be first in runs scored although he is the current leader with 111. Hostetler and Easterling of Tulsa are on his heels, Hostetler with 107, and Easterling with 101. SOME CERTAIN DATA IN BALL LEDGER GIVEN For Instance, Beau Bell to Lead in Doubles, Hooks In Triple Bat Drives. By BILL PARKER I DALLAS, Aug. 16. W 1 )—Wise men of Wall Street claim there is no such thing as a cinch wager ns long as the battle is on. The Texas loop has 19 more days to operate—the battle is still on, and here's a few sure things. That Beau Bell, Galveston right- fielder, " will lead the circuit in doubles. He got one last night to give him a total of 48, ten more than Alexander Hooks, Tulsa first sucker who is runner-up. That Alex Hooks will pace the league in triples. He has 20, far ahead of any other rival. That Hugh Shelley, Beaumont leftfielder, will show the way in stolen bases. He is credited with 33, miles in front. That Ash Hillin, San Antonio's sensational youngster, will win tile CONSUMERS AND WEST TEXANS OUSTED IN LOSSES I most games. Through, last he had 22 victories. night The Vemon Kennedy, tall Oklahoma City speed ball wizard, will win strike out honors. Vernon has 139, counting the six he got last night. Race Meet at Amarillo To Be Begun Sept 22 AMARILLO, Aug. 11.—Dates for the fall race meeting sponsored by the Tri-State Fair in Amarillo have been set by the directors starting on Sept. 22. Tliis means that lovers of the turf will have opportunity to enjoy seven glorious days of thoroughbred racing. Last spring's meeting was so successful that Tri-State Fair officials are leaving no stone unturned in preparing for the fall meeting. Officials of this meeting will be chosen from the group of local and Panhandle citizens who assisted the nationally famous .turfmen in conducting the meeting last spring. The admission price for thetom- ing event has been lowered 25 cents from that charged last spring, the price for the fall meeting being 50 cents per person with 25 cents Three inlercEtinfr games, won ' by largo scores, were played ill the Fainpa invitation baseball , tournament yesterday. The llu- : bcr Carbon team from Borger eliminated the Pampa Consumers from tlio race with a 10 to 4 victory. Coltexo followed and sent the Amarillo West Texans homo 21 to 8. Pampa Road Run- : ners put the Amarillo Merchants in a bad way by defeating them . 11 to 1 last night. Manager George Bulla of tho Road Runners pitched four-hit ball to defeat the Merchants. His support was sparkling, especially the playing of Aaron Ward at sec- 1 ond base who made two spectac- ulai 1 plays. "Long John" Costello again pitched fine ball for the Merchants but his support cracked again ns it did Sunday when he should have; defeated Phillips "66" of Borger in' a great game. Although the Mer-; chants made only two errors, they, let balls get past them that should havo gone for easy outs. Freddy Brickell and. Gordon Nell again led the Pampa batting attack. Brickell gathered four hits, one a nice double. Nell got three hits, one a long home run in the first inning, and a triple and single.' Wells, Road Runner shortstop, also got his batting eye back again last night to gather three hits. The Merchant hits were well scattered. Their lone talley came in the fifth when Northcross walked, and was forced at second by Bradford, who advanced to third on a single by Tucker. Bradford scored on a hit to third when McLary elected, to get the batter instead of trying for home. The Road' Runners were well in the lead and the play at first was sure, giving the Road Runners two down with one on. The game was close and interesting until the seventh inning, when the Road Runners sent seven runs •'across the plate. Huber took an early lead in tho •first game yesterday afternoon and held it, largely due to relief pitching. Connor, starting pitcher, began to weaken and was immediately replaced by Croft, even though the carbon men had a largo lead. Croft was wild, walking three of tho first four batters to face him. He was replaced by Lefty Blair, who allowed a run before retiring the side in the eighth. f Aycock started for the Consumers but was replaced by Hess, who pitched nice ball. Hess throws tho ball where it is hard to hit cleanly. Marcum led the Huber batting attack with three hits. Maloy, Stephenson and Cady' each got two for Consumers. Coltexo had little difficulty sending Amarlllo's West Texans home in tho second game. Joe McKnight tried a come-back but was unabla to stand the grind and was relieved by Bernie Vaught, second baseman, who held Coltexo to one run. Perkins started for Coltexo and Thomas finished the game. Thirty- cne Coltexo batters went to tho plate in the first three innings and collected 17 hits and 17 runs.
