The Ames Merchants will meet Roland, -the only county team which has downed the locals this season, in a county league game on the Sixteenth street diamond Sunday afternoon. This game between the leaders of'the league may be a deciding factor in the final outcome of the team standings. ' i Altho the Merchants were defeated last Sunday in the state semi-pro tourney, they are proud to know that they have at least one player who showed his stuff. Max--Tevebaugh, star of the tourney.' has been singled out by Western league scouts and been asked : to appear in Des Moines for a tryout with the Des- Moines club next week. Tevebaugh plays right field for the Merchants and is an exceptionally good batter. He will play in 'Sunday's game against Roland.

Knsland (l'.F)Riding the crest of a stunning victory over Australia, four American youths battled Saturday to wrest the world's most prized tennis trophy from England—the historic Davis cup. So even was pro-match speculation, that the luck of the draw, which put Frank Shields of New- York against H. Wilfred (Bunny) Austin of England in the opening match, may determine the final outcome. The'first match probably will swing the series. Neither team was notably favored by the draw; yet the twist of fate that pitched the Xo. 1" men of each team in the first match was <ju;te likely to prove the "key" of the series. Whichever wins will have Yankees Bring Injured and III Back From Trip NEV» YORK (UP)—The Yankees came home in first place Saturday, but not quite sure how they got there, after one of the most death- defying road trips of their career. Battered and wounded, their outfield stripped of three regulars- Ruth, Combs and Chapman —they went thru the gamut of despair, until, with half the club laid out with injuries, they unexpectedly started winning. In the closing series they got back to the top and hold it now by two percentage points. IVtroit and Cleveland more than held their own against the eastern invaders, the Tigers winning ten aiul losing six. the Indians winning 11 out ft 16.

The tire men ran two across the plate* in the opening inning and it began to look bad for the locals, but at their turn at bat, the Painters evened the count. The score was tied again in the fifth at 4 apiece. Ames ended the scoring in the sixth with another run. Tevebaugh, Miller's first sacker, executed a brilliant play in the ninth inning when he staged a double play alone. Taking a ground ball, he tagged a runner going down to second, then sprinted across first .base ahead of the batter. According to all the counts except the score, which is the deciding one, Des Moines should have beaten Ames. Keefer, star hurler for Daniels Brothers, whiffed 12 and passed but three of the Miller- men. He was reached for only six hits. Mujlica, Miller pitcher, gave 11 hitSj six walks and fanned six, but the score reads 5 to 4 in favor of Ames. The lineups: Miller'*—5 AB R H E R.
