Thursday, September 30, 1937 flOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS SPO] kJTJL ^\**J r J Star Dust By LEONARD ELLIS FAN MAIL Dear Sir: I noticed in . your column of September 28, that the "grapevine" reports that Camdon wants Hope to win nil of their conference gnmos prior . to the Hopo-Camden tussle so the Panthers may be the first team to knock the Bobcats out of the running for Conference honors. Now, that is confidence for you. Tl's the same old story of counting the chickens before they hutch. If I was Cnrnden I would wait until the final whistle before I pronounced the Hope game won. Remember what happened last yenr Panthers? Every year Camclen comes out with the same sad story about not having a Rood team. They urc afraid to leave their selves open aren't they Stardust? Yet every year the Panthers rank as topnotchors. They always come to town with the sad sad story of being weakened with players out, or some other excuse. What I would like to know is why they "beef" so when they do lose? Understand I'm not saying a thing against the team itself, its their followers that do the loud hollowcring. Regardless of the outcome of the game I don't believe Hope would ever "beef" as did some of the Panther's followers. I wonder what excuse they will fiivc out before the game this year. You watch, they will have one because Uiey always do. You can print my name if necessary but I would rather, for personal reasons, for it to be withheld. Just K\y: A Bobcat Fan.

We'll pass it on to the public as il stands. They tell me that Camden has a more powerful aggregation this year than in recent seasons. Following the Nashville-Camden game last Friday night, Coach Lester Bradley of Nashville told this writer that the Panthers had a four-touchdown belter team than last year. Regardless of the out-come of the Hope-Cnmden Ranie, it will probably attract the largest delegation of Hope fans ever to follow a Bubrnt team to a foreign field. Tickets fur the Hopo-Sivmckover game will go on sale Friday morning nt four downtown places. Hope Confectionery, Jacks Newsstand. Webb's Newsstand and New Capital hotel. Fans are urged to purchase them at once to avoid confusion at the gate. Reports from Smackovcr say that approximately '100 fiin.s and students will boon the special train arriving in Hope at 7::«) o'clock Friday night. They will be met by three school buses and transported to the field. Coach Foy Mammons asked Hope fans to meet the train and aid in giving the visitors a ride to the field— and then a return ride to the train.

Hope Fans Urged to Welcome Visitors—Help in Transportation The Hope High School football team will have a weight advantage of about three pounds to the man in the game lore Friday night with the Smackover High School Buckaroos. The Smackover team will average 170 pounds, the line 171, and the back- fiold 168 pounds, according to weights of the probable starling lineup sent icre by Coach Allen Berry. The team is reported to be in good condition, and will "shoot the works" against the Bobcats. Mere is the probable starting line up of the visitors: Left end-E. H. Barker. 165.

He has been shifting his boys around this week and said that fans would see some new players in action. Robert Jewell. 150-pound center, will start in that position Friday night. Percy Ramsey, veteran left end, has been doing quite a bit of punting and passing this week and may see some action in the backfield against the Buckaroos. Tom Bundy and Master are among the new men who have been showing up well in practice. Coach Hammons said his team would be in good shape for the battle with, the exception of Fullback Joe Eason who is nursing an injured foot. Eason however, is expected to play.

PRINCE ALBERT NATIONAL Red Rolfe Frank Crosetti Don Ueffner Jack SalUgaver With the Exception of Gehrig, Records of Yankee Infielders Not Impressive Work at Bat and in the Field Is Weak—Crosetti Is Slumping Badly at the Plate—Five Other Shortstops Have Better Hitting Record By RICHARD McCANN NBA Service Sports Writer NEW YORK—With the exception of Mr. Lou Gchrig, one of our oldest inhabitants, they ought to charge the Yankee infiulders admission to the world series. Certainly, the lads have done little to earn their way into the park. They have been both negligent in the field and negligible at the bat. Yes, at the bat. They are, to be sure, members of the famed aVid fierce Murderers' Row, but judging from the records you could hardly accuse them of slaughtering pitchers. Somebody else has been doing the dirty work. Take Mr. Red Rolfe, the Yankee third baseman, for example. His batting average is, an anemic .270-or-so and is exceeded by six other third basemen in the league. The only fellow tradesman he is outhitting is poor old rheumatic Tony Piet of the Chicago White Sox. Five third basemen also have driven in more runs than Rolfe. Harlond Clift of St. Louis, for instance, has driven home twice as many. Rolfe's inferiority out in the field has been just as pronounced. At least four rivals are better than he afield—< Werber of Philadelphia, Clift of St. Louis, Higging of Boston, and Lewis of Washington. So much for Rolfe. . . . Crosetti Slumping Badly at Plate At shortstop, the Yankees have a man who is being" outhit by five short- fielders. Travis of Washington, Croniu of Giants Need Only 1 Game for Flag Miss Clinching Pennant by Breaking Even With Phillies -PHILADELPHIA./! 1 )—Th'e New York Giants missed clinching the National League pennant Wednesday by getting only an even break in a doubleheader with the Phillies. They won the opener, G to 3, as Cliff Melton won his 20th victory, and dropped the second game, G to 5, when the contest was called because of darkness after the Giants scored five runs in the first half of the eighth. The victory left the Giants 3'-i games in front of the second place Cubs. A three-run rally in the seventh inning clinched the opener for the New Yorkers. In the close, Lefty Lamaster held New York to four hits through the first seven innings. In the eighth, they bunched six hits, drove Lamaster to the showers and just missed tying the score with a five-run splurge, featured by Jimmy Ripple's homer with two aboard and Ryan's two-run pinch-double. Washington Mrs. Lee A. Holt, chairman of Dist. 3 of the Ouachita Presbyterial, presided at a group conference of the district which met at the First Presbyterian church in Hope on Thursday September 23. An interesting program was presented at both the morning and afternoon sessions. The Hope aux- ilary served luncheon at the noon hour in the church parlor. Mrs, J. A. Wilson of the local auxilary appeared on the morning program with a report of the Arkansas Synodical Training school which she attended at Batesville Travelers Win in Play-Off Series Little Rock to Oppose Fort Worth- in Dixie Series Thursday ATLANTA — (/P) — Packing their punches into one frenzied inning, the Little Rock Travelers won the seventh and deciding game of the Southern Association playoff with Atlanta Wednesday 5-2. Lefty Lee Rogers, young Alabaman who was unable to win against the rackers in the regular season, stopped them with five scattered hits Wednesday in the game which puts the 1937 champions into the Dixie series against the Fort Worth Cats. Little Rock and Fort Worth will square away in the Arkansas capital at 8:15 p. m. Thursday. Hustling Leo Nonnenkamp, Traveler center fielder, started the rout of Atlanta with a single in the sixth. Three other hits, three walks and an error permitted the Little Rock players to bat around, which they did with gusto. With one out the bases loaded, Al Niemeic grounded to Shortstop Buster Chatham and Nonnenkamp and Fred Tauby scored when his throw to the plate struck the racing outfielder and bounded away. Roy Thompson was walked intentionally and Right Hander Emil Leonard, who had pitched two-hit ball for five innings, was replaced by young Larry Miller. Two hits filled the bases again and Miller gave way to Bobby Durham. Jack O'Neill grounded to Second Baseman Hugh Luby and Thompson was forced at the plate. Nonnenkamp walked forcing in Shortstop Bunny Griffiths. Then Tabor forced Nonenkamp at second, Chatham to Luby. The Crackers bunched their offensive to bring in single runs in the seventh and eighth, but were shut out in the ninth in order. Leo Moon, left handed veteran called to replace Durham when he yielded to Pinch Hitter Paul Richards, held the Travelers scoreless in the closing innings.

Three games are scheduled on Texas territory. If more games are necessary, they will be played at Little Rock. Homer Peel, Fort Worth manager, announced that Jackie Reid, veteran little righthander,, would get the opening assignment for the Sats. Reid, who pitched for the Nashville Vols several seasons ago, won 22 games during the regular season. Doc Elects Midkiff Manager Doc Prothro of the Travelers before entraining from Atlanta following the gruelling series with the Crackers, telegraphed that he planned to opsn with Dick Midkiff, toweririg young righthander from the University of Texas. Doc said his pitching staff was pretty well used up but they would "be in there battling.", Midkiff won 13 and lost eight during the regular season.

Orville W. Erringer Hope, Ark. Representing Hamilton Trust Fund Sponsored by Hamilton Depositors Corp. Boston, Appling of Chicago, Lary of Cleveland, and Knickerbocker of St. Louis boast better-nourished averages than Frankie Crosetti's skimpy .240- or-so. In addition, all four have driven home more mates than Frankie. Crosetti, sometimes spectacular afield, most of the times dependable, has been scattery-armed this season, and fumbly-fingered. Probably because of the uncertainty at second. Tony Lazzeri, his partner around the keystone sack, as the boys call it, is just about done for as a regular player, and brittle this year. His slowness undoubtedly affected Crosetti's work. As a result, the Yankees have made less double plays than any other team in the league. The fact that it must be Lazzeri's fault was proved when he was taken out of the lineup for a month and the Yanks averaged about one twin-killing a game with Don Heffner pivoting in his place. It was a hand fracture that put Tony out of the lineup and while languishing on the bench Tony allowed as how he thought it was time for him to quit. However, now that the hand has mended he has returned to the lineup and Joe McCarthy plans to use him throughout the world series. Lazzeri is being outhit by six other American League second basemen, and also by his substitute, Huffner, but he still has that knack of blasting out a long 'un now and then to break up the ball game. Tony May Be Outhit but lie Scores 'Km For instance, the clay he came back he knocked a 407-foot double off the right-center field fence in Yankee Stadium. Tony, wobbling legs, broken band, and all, is still able to chase his pals across the plate. He's driven in 60 this season. And McCarthy hasn't forgotten the way Tony, the old man, acted up last fall when he became the second man in history to hit a homer with the bases full in a world series. That memory, more than anything else, will keep little Don Heffner on the bench and give the second base job to Lazzeri. As for first base, the Yankees seem to be doing aJI right there. A young fellow named Lou Gehrig. who has been on trial for the past few years, is expected to get a steady job out of it. At least, he ought to last long enough o survive the world series, which will ep the Yankee inner cordon, as the 1910 gazettes used to say, from com- pjete disgrace.
