PRESIDENT MOODY HAS GIVEN MANY LADS THEIR CHANGE td by the Efrj;- preparing- the he campaign and an- corn- By 1ULI, I'ABKER ' Press Sports Writer DALLAS. Aug. 10. f/1'i—Young basel;nll players with mnjor league ainbl'.imi should join owner Shcarn Woody'--! (.'ialvrstim B;iccinV:crs. Mcody, in co-operation with Manager Billy Webb, is specializing'in the development and sale of Texas leaguers'to the majors. Mcody deserves recognition as being one club owner willing to part with any Galveston player any big league aggregation may desire with- cuf, demanding a. staggering price. He has sold two outfielders and two pitchers this season and is almost sure to cash in on two more current Gnlveston stars. When the St. Louis offered approximately J,l,100 for right fielder Beau Bell, President Moody closed the deal. Because of Bell's youth and hitting ability most club mogiifs would; have rejected the Browns offer and demanded a sum much larger. Naturally, the price would have been too high, the sale would have fizzled, and Bell would have been the loser. The Philadelphia Nationals offered a stipulated cash sum and two players for pitchers Orville Joi-gens and Slim Jim Bivin. The trade went through without a hitch. Regardless of the sum received, Moody made, a profit. Manager Webb signed Jorgens as a free agent. Bivin was purchased from Tulsa at small cost. Bsside cash, Galveston got pitcher Lefty Cole and catcher Mnynard in the deal—two youngsters who should be glad of their chance to reach the majors via the Galveston route. Mcody made his fourth sale Wednesday when the Philadelphia thirties purchased Wallace Moses mi outfielder. The deal involved cash only.

A successful bUHiucsK man before purchasing the r..uccanei>rs, Moody went into baseball to make money and is making it in a big way. In his first year iis owner he assembled an aggregation that vr.teran Texas league moguls laughed at. The club finished fourth in thn first half half and sixth in the second. I-:ii:t year the Buccaneers finished second on a straight through campaign and Moody sold several players. This year the Bucs are in second place, Moody has sold four players and it is almost a cinch that young Buck Fausett, third baseman, will by the noxt to be purchased, by a major league team. Diegal in Great Sub-Par Finish (IP) today the Jack ROCHESTER, N. Y., Aug. 10. WP) —Leo Diegal's parting shot at the Oak Hill Country club's east course —a sizzling GO that equaled the course record—has earned the jittery-nerved veteran first money in the: Rochester Centennial-Walter Hagen golf tournament. That grand finish, five strokes under par, enabled Diegel, now pro st ilie Phihnont Country club, Philadelphia, to wind up with a two- CANADIAN AND AMARIL LO MEETING IN AFTERNOON TILT It wrts visitors' day in the Pampa InvMutiml liHs'eliaM (fmrna- mrnt today, when four .strong mil of (own trains ivcrc !o flush. TM-O ci' the teams; will br mnkiiiff tlich- initi:'.! appearance a'lttl both are tournament favorites. The days' schedule began at 3:30 o'clock with the Canadian Wildcats meeting the Amarillo West Texans. Both teams will present strengthened lineups. Thn Canadian entry is determined to show fans that the Wildcats arc strictly a daylight aggregation, while Amarillo has the same idea. Manager Frank CaUellon of the Wildcats, who is a former Pamp* resident, has twd pitchers nnd an outfielder ready for service. They hda not arrived here hist night. Manager Sam Douglas of the West Texans also will have some new mafciial to throw against Canadian. Great Gamn Tonifelit Tonight's encounter is doped to be one of Ih'e best in the tournament. The opposing teams are both from Borger and they have no love for each other. Huber has strengthened to the hilt for the tournament and will send either Lefty Blair or Sam Johnson, right hander, to th* niHind against the Phillips "6'G" Oil- ers. "Pewee" Bass or Mulroney will be the probable pitching choice of Manager Pickens of the oilmen., Huber will present a lineup similar to the one that defeated Phillips "(!«" recently as the Borger All Stars. The team, however, will have a strengthened battery which sounds bad for Phillips. Manager Liciuanca of Huber is gunning for Phillips nearly as stroligly as for the $1,000 first prize money in the tcuriiaiherit. '"'lirec Ga'.iisx To'morrmv The schedule for tomorrow is also on inh-rcslin!-', 1 one. Because of the tliri'.e-iiiiino elimination, it will be ricccsMry to play three games a clay, excepting Sunday, when a (!c.ui!lehctidcr will be played in the i.itcMnt-rn with no game at night. The firs; game tomorrow after-, nc.cn v.-ill b: 1 at 1:30 o'clock and" 1 will sec.- the surprising Pampa Consumers meeting the fast Amarillo Me:chants, late entry in the tour- iM'm-.-nt. George Martin has gath-» tied a strong team to be Amarillo's second entry in the big event. The game at 3:30 o'clock will be between the Pampa Indians and the loser of roniyht s f;ame between Phillips "GG" and HuVwr Carbon. Manager C. O. Busby of the Indians claims IK will have a surprise waiting for the opposition. Saturday Is Awn Red Cue of the best games of the tournament is scheduled for Saturday night, when the Paivipa Road Runners meet tiie fast Coltexo team of LePcrs. With Koewing in the box, LeFors plays inspired ball, and it will take all the Road Runner batting and fielding power to handle LeFors, fans believe. Pete aj:egman will probably 'be Manager George Bulla's choice to oppose the sensational little St. Louis fire-ball artist. Packed stadium is in prospect for the game tomorrow night. LeFors is completely "sold" on the Gassers, and the entire city will move to Pampa tomorrow. Pahipa fans are lio less interested in the game. They are anxious to see Koewing againsC* fast company.
