NEVER IN— Malinger Herschell Bobo didn't have much to say about the Giants' defeat Thursday in the season's opener . . . "We were never In the ball game", he said, "and couldn't have expected to win without any better hitting . . . But I am not worried ... I believe we have n good team this year and are going to win many games . . .

Joe Moore of the Giants Is one of the most unusual players in the majors. He looks like he's held to- uether by adhesive tape, picture ' wire and glue. He looks more unlike a ball player lhan perhaps any man In the big show. But looks arc deceiving with him. He's one of Ihe best all-round players on the Giant learn and gets less credit for Ills irork than perhaps any man on the club. He's n humpty-dumpty in the outfield, making more catches skidding on his stomach, and tumbling head over heels than any outfielder around. But any ball Joe Moore gets his hands on he seldom, Gene thrower If ever, drops. Moore Is the greatest in the National League nn<i one of the best fielders In the business. He's a timely and hard littler. He hits one unique record —a left-handed batter, lie's hit homers over every left fteld fence in the National league. So far us known he's the only player ever to accomplish that feat. Terry Moore has been dogged by Injuries throughout his three years wllh the Cards. He is a clasy fielder, and can roam far nml wide. If lie could hit above .380 he'd be a star. No one can mi- del-slum! why Terry can't, hit bet- lev than he does. He h fast, has » KWI\ eye mid plenty of strength, but he can't seem lo get basehiU, In three years his averages have Ill-en .287, .264 and ,207. Whitcy ivfoore, a right-handed pik-hcr, appears headed for .stardom, lie broke In with the Reels lust season but wns farmed out to, where lie pitched "a no- hit, no-run came. He has a good fust ball, a good curve and a fine change of pace. Two years ago he was in a Class C lengne and Jumped all the way lo the majors. He got his first bnseball job by hitch-hiking from his home at New Philadelphia, O.. to a Hods' training camp for youngsters iit Beckley, W. Va., In 1934. He had GO cents In his pocket when he arrived In Beckley. Whltey has nightmares. Last yenr he had one on n steeper traveling from New York to Boston and kick'ed Ihe window out of his berth before his teammnles discovered wlmt the noise was all about. None of these Moores is related. The only thing they have in common besides their names Is (he fact Una all are real ball players who love Ihe game. and Russell May, Newport's "Iron man", were treated roughly in their first attempts Grimes was .

I am referring right now to Julian Harrington clubbed for C hits and 7 runs in 4 2-3 Innings . . .

The result "of this bout should be a toss up.

Northeasl Arkansas Blytheville Jonesboro Bnlcsville Newport Cni-utliei-Kvllle Pnrngould SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 1938 BUT mm Blytheville Reveals Power For First Time In 13 to 9 Win BY J. I'. FRIEND CARUTHEHSVILDE, Mo., April 30.— Blytheville and Canithersville battled for more than three hours before reaching a decision here last night. But thanks to a .stirring four run rally In the ninth, the Giants broke a 9-9 deadlock and finally won out, 13-9, for an even break in the two game series. It was a wild and wooly, long drawn out, and loosely played affair which treated the large opening game crowd to almost everything in nnd out of the Ira.scball category.' There were hits and errors galore, good and bad fielding, abundance of base on halls and .strikeouts, umpire wrangles, expulsion of a player from the game, four out in one half inning, the season's first balk.. and other things too numerous lo mention. The lead see-sawed back anil forth. The Giants blew a five-run lead. The Pilots forged ahead only to have the Giants tie and go ahead. Carutliersville tted it up. Then came the Garrison finish by the visitors lo sew It up. Four Ouls The highlight of the hilarity, in which four outs were actually made, came in the final frame and provided one for the "Little Keel fence, coming In behind Bobo ahd Tramback, They added another in the second, an outright gilt. Dvorak was safe on Mondon's error. Meyran bunted and Fichter threw the nail into eenterfield trying to catch Dvorak at second. Dvorak continued to third. Woods and I Ian ing- ton were strikeout victims, but Bobo dropped a Texas LCHBUCT into lefl scoring Dvorak. The Pilots came back rough and tough and proceeded to get Meyran out.

OPENING DAY GLEANINGS— Hurley Grimes, Jonesboro lelty Tlie Memphlnns claim rugged Pine Hill links as the their home course and are rated as a seasoned and capable combination. They would probably rate as favorites in tomorrow's tournament except for the locals reputation of invincibility over their own course.

Tlie last volcano In the United States, Mount Lasson, will not erupt again, according to scientists. 1914. last eruption was Today's Games Southern League New Orleans at Memphis. Nashville at Atlanta. Knoxville at Chattanooga. Only games scheduled. Umpire Yowell, calling balls and strikes behind the plate, had been the target of players and fans alike because of his decisions. Especially had Aragon and Catcher Simmons displayed their dissatisfaction. Finally Aragon became so enraged over two successive decisions on Charles Pichter, who was batting, that he jerked oil his mask, hurled It to the ground anct then slammed the ball to the ground. Yowell promptly jerked his thumb in the direction of the exit nnd out he went. Joe Maresco went in to catch for Blytheville. Giants Get 12 Hits Both teams collected twenty-one hits, which included six extra base hits. The Giants banged out an even dozen, headed by Manager Herschell Bobo with 3 for four, one a two bagger. Aragon homered in the first with two one. Julian Harrington had two singles, and nit but Muresco and Pitcher Meyran secured at least one safety. Fich- j ter proved to be a belter hitter | than a pitcher, driving in three runs with a double and triple. "Fido" Filo also hatt two hits. .• Lewis "Long John" Meyran started on the mound for the Bobo- men but gave way to Harry Feldman In the second after Fichter's triple had scored the third run of the inning and threatened to overcome a five run lead built up in the first two times at bat. Fcld- inan's wildness kept him constantly In hot water. But lie finished stroll!; and received credit for the victory. Pichter staggered through the entire nine innings, was even wilder then Feldman and received indifferent support. He walked nine and (alined ten. Feldman issued i six base on balls and struck out 7. i Giants Start I The Giants lost no time In taking the lead, scoring (our in the (irst. Woods walked.
