I'. 1'IUENl) After two successive setbacks, the Coca Cola uottlcrs hounded back into (he tllle picture by beating Blytheville Steam Laundry, 9-6, while the loop leading Jnck Applebaum's Slore was bowing to a hnrd hitting, alert Nu-Wa Cleaners aggregation. 17-7, last night in a Girls' Softball League twin bill. As a result I'as Bottlers went into » tie with the Baumcrs for first place, and Laundry dropped Into a cellar deadlock with Nu-Wn. Trailing 6-2. the Bottlers stage;! a fourth inning rally, scoring seven runs on six hits, and went ahL'ud In story book fashion that would 5iave done jus:».'e to a Frank Merriwell. Until the fatal Inning "Tootsle" Stanfield hail completely mastered the Coins, holding them (o three! nieasley singles, but when she blew she went jky 'nigh. Mary Lou Whittle suffered a temporary loss of control in the secmd and third when Laundry scored all their rims, but hurled steadily Ihe rest of the way. She gave up seven lills, Issued six basss on tolls and struck out three. Stsnileld was combed for nine. Double Vluy Saves Game Bases on balls to McDaniel. Stanfield nnd E. Georges ill a row, an error, and Scott's triple gave the Laundry a 4-2 lead in the second inning after Coca Cola had opsn- cd wilh a pair on singles by Blylhe and Trumblc, a walk and an oul- field "error. ' Scott's home run with A. George on first us a result of a pass ran their total to 0, Willie "Tootsie" was mowing down Ihe opposition. But the crash came'ln Widner, and Fisher singled In or- the fourth. Trumble, M. McOec. dcr. Hllbuni rolled out. E. Mc- Gce cracked one to center, and M, Whittle was safe on n fielder's choice. Hney.was tossed out. bul Old'ham came through with n home run, cleaning the bases for the whining margin, oldham probably saved the game the next inning TYiylo: when, with the bases filled, she utes. took Johnson's roller, tagged A Georges on the" line and threw to Widner, catching Scolt and ending the game. Scott led the hitters with' a single, triple and home run. Helpless Without Uussic Minus Gussie Blackburn, fast ball -pitching star.

Igleharl, cf Ifssly in contrast to their usual Wngster, lf-2b dashing game, and were helpless against the clever pitching of Sadie Stamey, Nu-Wn ace. Sadie held the league's best hitting team tc three'singles, and a home run by L Whittle, and outpltehcd Incy Snlibn, ss .... Bevil, Bessie Hemphill, and Hazel L. Whittle, If Lilies. ' Grimes, c Nu-Wa collected thirteen hits off the three Applcbnum hurlers, including a Ruthlan drive by M. Igls- liart, nnd scored in every inning except the fourth. Iglehart's home run, and three singles by Smith. Chapman, and Laster, two walks and an error sent Nu-Wa off to n five nin lead in the first and they were never headed. After battinj around in the first Nu-Wa sent 12 hitlers to the plalc in Ihe nexl inning, sending Bsvil and her successor, Hcniphill, to Ihe showers Lutes went to the mound nnd slopped fne slaughter, she gave up a run In th cthird on a walk to M Iglehart, followed by Nlckles' double. She got by the fourth, bul Nu-Wn broke out with hitting fever, nnd her mates contracted fum- blltls In Kie fifth. Three hits, ns many errors, and two walks manufactured five more runs. Applcbaum Scores Meager The losers were counting in every frame, too, but on n much smaller scale. Three errors nnd a base on balls gave them their firsl in the first. They got two more without benefit of base hits in the second, the usual combine of walks . and errors. L. Whittle's homer to opsn the third was the first hit off Stamey. Grimes followed wit'n a single, advanced on a wild pitch nnd came in with run No. 5 on C. Whittle's error, it was three up and three down in the fourth but singles by L. Whittle and Morris, a base on balls to H. Lutes, and the pitcher's bobble permitted e couple more Applebaum tallies tc trickle over the pan. Laster, with three singles In four trips, paced the hitters. Smith Vaughn, c. Whittle, M. Igleliart and I,. Whittle each collected .vc hits. Blanche Morris' catch of a liner off the bat of A.

Rush : Birmingham National League • Chicago 3, Philadelphia 0. Cincinnati 7. New York 3. Pittsburgh 2, Brooklyn 1. St. Louis-Boston played at cnr- icr date. N. Y. j Smiling Tony got there the hard 1 way. Previous to landing 'his pres- | ent position at the Sedgefleld C j C., Greensboro. N. C., the New York City-born Italian . was • so hard pressed to make, both ends meet ! that he took. a,']6b on a driving range. He undoubtedly is the first champion to rise from that lowly IKBltion in golf. ''Unlike the Parks'-ofr-lnsl 'year, Manero. Is extremely popular among his contemporaries. Even had he not so clearly demonstrated his worth, he should have been accepted by the profession. Tony Manero belongs. Steady Play Belies His Nervous Appearance Manero's slory Is one of a potential star w'no kept falling Just a bit short and who was unable to find a position In one of the larger centers, where he could be more widely publicized. Manero. \vho sports a trim moustache, Is medium-sized and handsome. Mrs. Manero is one of the most beautiful women In golf. Al fne presentation of the trophy, the couple easily could have been taken for a pair of moving picture stars. Jvfanero appears nervous, but isn't, as he demonstrated In knocking two strokes off the .Bnltusrol record to catch Light Horse Harry Cooper, who for the second time saw a National Open Championship swept away from 'him in tlic stretch, run. Low Scores Long- Ago Proved Aliilily Manero Is the Willie Macfarlane type—short and straight. His Iron play reached Its zenith in the Open, and he was deadly with Ills putter, of course. While Mnncro's 282 was four strokes under the former Open record, established by Chick Evans at Mlnlknlula in 1910 nnd tied by Sarazen at Fresh Meadows in 1932. the champion who once lugged clubs i:i Westchester. has a 72-hale tournament record of 27G, shot at Glens Falls In 1930. There were plenty of warning; in Manero's best scores, 65 In the La Gorce Op3ii, CG 'in the El Paso Open, 68 al Hot Springs, and CD at Hamilton, Ontario. Manero served John Inglis as an assistant at Elmsford for som? lime, and fne first thing he d!:l after bagging tlic Open wns ask newspapermen to please put in a good word for his old boss. Manero later was employed at Lon» Beach N. J. As n youngster, Manero had to decide whether to go on in golf or become a professional fighter. He still Is plenty 1 hittuly with ins iukes. He is tremendously stroui; lor one of Ills apiienrance and size, nd his fellow pros frequently call upon him for feats of endurance strength. He excels :it other games, hut likes golf Won Only $1358 hi Tournaments Last Vrar Manero first attracted attention by taking the CaUiIina Island Open 1923. He won the Pasadena Open and Glens Fulls Open in 1<V.!0, file Wcstehester Open In 1932. and (he North Carolina Open in 1SI33. Last year Manero won t'r.e General lirock Op?n; finished .sscotul n the Glens Rills Open and Soutli- inst p. o. A. championship; tied for third in t'he Canadian Open; lost in the third round of ttie I>. O. A.; was sixth in ihe Cascades Op;n; and tied for eighth place in the Mfd-Soulii Invitational. Bein? champion will not change Manero's schedule. He'll play In everything that comes along,"anil quite naturally expects to earn a great deal more than the $1958 he collected in tournament play in 1935.

DENVER (UP)—old Doobln has not been entirely forgotten In this motorized age. The city council appropriated $60 for a drinkin? fountain for horses. It used to be said of the Master Draper, head of. an old time dry goods store, that he stroked his chin knowingly when certain customers walked in. This was a sign to his assistant that they could probably be "shaved"' . . .or given the worst of the bargain! Today, walking in and buying the goods for a new dress is wholly without any such hazard. The fabric marked "wool" is just that. Pure silk is woven from the natural silkworm product. If the fabric is composed of one of the newer, man-made yarns, the type of rayon is usually named in a sign on the counter, or on the end of the bolt of cloth. And the price, you get out of the advertisement ... no quibbling about that! You read before you shop, and buy just as much as the pattern-envelope calls . for.
