'BUT BETTBB IK AMIS' It, It Old Timers Bring Grief to Youthful Batters STOUT IN AN EIGHT HIT PERFORMANCE Flint Rhem Gives Cub Team 6 to 1 Beating -NEW YORK, (UP)— Great relief Is being spread among youthful batters 'Of- the National league by the gpuped-up soupbones of some of' the most venerable elbwers in as. Old Burleigh Grimes, fading relic of elm-juice days, Is of course i&e outstanding exampie of antiquity. The senator at large from Wisconsin was wagging an elbcw M far back as 1913, and since then . has ; seen service with every club in the National league but Cincinnati and Philadelphia, and was recently discharged by the Yankees. Old Burleigh's latest feat was to .out-wag Carl- Hubbell, the New York sputhside specialist in a slx- liit performance for Pittsburgh — where- he saw service, incidentally, in 1916. Otters of the old guard have b«en dazzling the adolescents, however. These include old Tom Zachary the tar heel southpaw, cast off by Boston and picked i.p by Brooklyn; Flint Rhem, who goes in and out of the big leagues like a man in a revolving door; Fish Hook* Stout,. who became an old man in the minors before he hit the big loop; and the venerable Jesse Haines of St. Louis. Thursday Fish Hooks, who was shunted to Cincinnati by the St Louis Cards, flagged down the Brooklyn Dodgers with an eight- hit exhibition, winning 8-1 for the redlegs. Moral Influence • Mr. Rhem, who comes from a •wide, spot in the road called Jthems, down in South Carolina, is probably the most successful of the old timers, having won eight and 'lost only three for the Boston Braves. Flint has been .around since 1924, but hai had two trips hack to the minors. He is noted for his moral influence as well as his pitching arm, having supervised the personal conduct of Grover Cleveland Alexander when old Pete was touring the -Memphis beer halls as a member oi the St Louis pitching staff. Thursday Rhem bowled an eight- hit game against the Chicago Cubs, trouncing them 6-1 in the second game, after Chicago had beaten Boston ^-2 in a ten-inning opener. , JesSvHaJnes, another venerable member" of the ancient battalion who 'has been doing, business since 1914, received; credit for beating Philadelphia, 4r3, in. an eleven-inning affair, altho'Jess pitched only fckree-i ; innings for St. Louis. He "b*)d'-the Ehils hitless, after relieving i Tex Carleton in the eighth. • -, Bill -Walker, who has seen thir- l«eA years of service — eight with the Giants and Cards— bowled the nightcap lor the Cards, also win- •ning, 7-2. Jimmy Collins hit his twenty-first homer off Fidgety Phil Collins in the first inning, sending -two in; ahead of him, to give Walk- erVa- winning edge. .' - All, four American league games werV rained out. Chicago and Philadelphia,- and Detroit and New York will play double-headers Friday. .. - Miss Ryan Proves Her Game Modern Elizabeth Ryan, famous veteran of tennis tournaments, in her first comeback appearance on American courts proved her game has kept pace with the times when she played in the Women's National championship matches at Forest Hills, L. I., attired in the popular shorts. '$ WIN ONE OUT OF THREE Miller's PaiDters dropped a double-header to the Cocoanut Grove team of Fort Dodge. 2-2 and 4-1. and took a same from the Aero club of Des Moines. 3 to 2, in a full evening of softball on the Junior Chamber of Commerce diamond Thursday night. The first game was deadlocked at the end of the regular seven innings at 2-all and since there were two sanies remaining to be played, it was decided that the winner of the second game would take the double-header. B. Mori hit a home run for Fort Dodge in the first game. Mullica. Anifs hurler, held an edpe over D. Casta?nolio of Fort Podg?. tannin? six and walking none to the latter's six and one. The visitors held Miller's to one run, scored in the second frame, in the second section oi the doubleheader. B. Mori allowed the locals but four hits, fanning eiglH and walking one. Munson, Painter hurler, struck six and passed three. Five Aroes errors made things easier for the Cncoanut Grove outfit. Stan Nelson, playing in the short garden 'or Fort Dodge, was outstanding with his brilliant fielding. The Painters were forced to tighten down in the last inning of their contest with the Aero Club when (he visitors scored to come within p'r.'king distance. Mo;enpss hit a home run in the third with the bases empty. Mullica fanned four and passed two for Ames, and Pickett struck five and walked two for the Aero club.

But after Dizzy went all the way toward a reconciliation, he was balked at first by Paul's standoff attitude which prompted Manager Frank Frisch io announce that "both will come back or both will stay out." When Paul finally capitulated. Dizzy—as Dizzy so often does—had chanced his mind. It.appeared that the elder brother was going to Chicago to lay his case before High Commissioner Kenesaw Landls. He issued an extensive- statement on his attitude Thursday night, but declined to say where he was going. Paul, meanwhile, was ready to toe the mark, but paradoxically couldn't until Dizzy came along. champion, led the field into the semi-finals of the Canadian amateur play Friday, against two Canadians and another American. Jess Guilford of Boston, Ross Somerville of. Lotdon. Ont., a former Canadian and American amateur champion, and Eddie Palmer of Winnipeg were the other survivors. The Huxley Girls took their first defeat on the home grounds Wednesday night when the Hawkeye Motor Team of Boone won a fast game 11 to 9. . A seventh inning rally by the Motor team, combined with a series of errors on the part of the Huxley players, allowed the visitors to tally eight runs for a total of 11. A home ruu by lies with the bases loaded was the deciding factor. In their half of the seventh, Huxley came back strong, scoring 5 runs, but failed to overcome the j Hawkeye lead.
