Jim Charles is shown above In track a ml fcolbnll regalia, with Thorpe In the background. Thorpe?. knob on his head. Two of the Memphis player* also were casualties, suffering llesh wounds. Spike himself was escorted oir the field through the lunnel that leads from the 1 visitors' dugout lo Ihe clubhouse in Pelicans' Park. 'i'lic-re is a story about that tunnel, by the way. Judge Lnndls ordered It built, last year after (he cltlzcnt? had chafed the Birmingham Itarons off the premises. It seems New Orleans is hard on the visiting firemen. Spike Shannon found himself !n a tough spot. But you'll have to agree that by ordering forfeited, he game guy. proved that game himself a Cubs Still Challenging Red Birds but Robins Out; Macks Divide. A Game Guy ' I have never met Umpire Spike Shannon of the Southern League, but I know he must be n game guy. For it was Spike Shannon, no other, who awarded the Southern League ' pennant to Memphis the other day by forfeit, during what I am told were "scenes of wildest excitement" In New Orleans. The Memphis Chickasaws needed one game to cinch the pennant. The New Orleans Pelicans were In the runnerup position. The two teams met, and if New Orleans had \von they would have had a chance lo win Ihe flag. even though not- a very great chance as chances go. The last game came to a hectic finish. With the score- 5 to 4 In favor of Memphis. New Orleans at bat, In the lasl half of the ninth, and one out, darkness swooped down upon the athletes. The fain demanded that the game be called. Spike Stands Pat Spike' Shannon stood his' ground. "Tliis team has been stalling," jaid Spike, referring to Ihe Pelicans, "and if they won't go on with the game, I'll Just have to declare it forfeited to the Chicks." It seems that it had taken quite a spell to play that ninth inning larry Gilbert, manager of Hit Pels, had three pitchers and an outfielder warming up In the -flrsl half, and couldn't make up his mind Just what to do. Had the game been called on account of darkness, the score would have reverttd to the end of the eighth, and the Chicks, Instead of winning. 5 to 4, would have lost I to 3. You probably have seen bali teams stalling for time. But cording to advices from the New Orleans billlefront, nothing Itke this ever occurred in baseball history. Before throwing a tall, the New Orleans pitcher conferred with the Inflelders, the outfielder? the bat bay and the groundkeep er. Then, Just about when U seemed as If he would pitch, a leaf or misplaced blade of graft would be discovered near third base. * « • Volley and Thunder In the last half of Ihe ninth, when Splice Shannon refused to call the game on account of darkness, the pop .'bottle barrage began. Players cleared the field of missies. They had no.sooner resumed their positions than another volley o*. the gUu containers was sent over by the partisan populace.

The score, 4 to 1. One big inning, the second, in wlilch liiey counted three runs or two hits proved lo be all Ihe Chicks needed. Joe Hutclieson hit a homer and Frank Wiuidey go; two doubles for the Chicks. Walter Beck limited ihe Cals t six hits, nil singles, nnd ihe Panthers counted their only run In the ninth inning to save n shutout. I' resulted from an error. The fifth of the scries is sched uled for today with the Cnls still needing one decision lo close out the series. Should the Chicks wir today, n sixth game will be playe at Memphis.

Golden years lie ahead of him. and if he can improve in the nexl few years as lie nas since lie came lo Haskcll, Ihe [jr r mise of "aisolher Thorpe" nclu- nlly may be realized. At Haskell for two years. Buster has been the regular fullback. As a ground gainer he has proved his value.
