ffitOOKLYN ROBINS OPEN HOME STAY IN FIRST Thres First Division fe&ffisj ! Eastern Leaders Bating Series and Brooklyn ' Hopta Are Pinned on Per- forffiftnoe of Glenn Wright. NfiW YORK, June S.-MaJor league baseball teams today opened the season's second aeries of intersectlonal competition with interest centering on thft Brooklyn Robins' attempt to strength*!! their hold on the National 'league lead. Intsfseotlonal competition Is regarded as the final test for pennant aspirants and the current two-wjeks oast-west series finds the Robins In the most favorable position of any major league (jlub.. the ROBlnd Ifead by three games and with th« returtt of shortstop Olcnn Wright have full strength available. The NeW York (Slants, only other eastern National league flag contender, are crippled by injuries. Three Of 'the Invading clubs—Pittsburgh, Chicago and St. Louis—hold lirst division berths and are regarded as the Robins' chief rivals. However, the Pirates and Cubs are shattered by injuries and face a difficult assignment In holding their present high ranking. ThekCardinals are in the throes Of ft protracted slump and have lost their last t games. The fourth western club, Cincinnati, offers little worry. Brooklyn fans expect their favorites to Increase their lead to a safe margin, taking added optimism from the Robins' success in the previous east-west series, when Brooklyn was the only . eastern club to earn an advantage over western teams. The Robins won 9 of HAslr 18 starts In the west and drop- pod only one scries, losing three straight to the Cubs. Since the setback at Chicago, the Robins have had 20 victories In 28 games played during Wright, who has made a remarkable recovery after being out with an in- lured arm during the entire 1929 season, has been the "spark plug" tor the Robins, but the team continued to win even when he was on the bench with injuries.'

To Muse and Amuse Hy Sl'OHTH UUITOU Shock to Sport Fan* Prominent In the athletic life of Altoona, Blair county and the entire Pennsylvania system for a score of years, Charles G. McCurdy of Altoona had his career cut short on Sunday when he expired suddenly while at^his office--in the Logan house. News, of the death was a severe shock to friends. A brief sick spell, due to a nervous breakdown, resulted In the sudden death. He was bedfast a few days last week but left the sick bed to pay a tribute to the Middle Division junior cage team, being in charge of the banquet arrangements to honor the cage players. Even up to his death he was busy planning athletics and on the eve of his parting he completed plans to organize a junior baseball team for the Middle Division, this team being entered In the eastern Pennsylvania competition. Heal Friend of Athletics In the death of Mr. McCurdy, athletes have lost a real friend and booster. Altoona and Pennsylvania railroad sports boosters have lost a leading executive. And the railroad company has lost a loyal, hustling and faithful employe. "Charley" as ho was known to many friends, or "Mac" as he was known to his intimates was long a leader of the sports fraternity in Altoona. His connection with sport dates back many years. He was a former baseball player and he early associated himself with the Pennsy Clerks league. He was secretary-treasurer in the early 1900's and later was advanced to the presidency. He guided the Middle Division Athletic association for many years and promoted the llrst Pennsy system track and Held championships in' Altoona.' He was general chairman over tho division and his duties found him active all over the system. ' "Charley" was "at homo" looking after all sorts of teams and he always brought home championships, trophies and medals galore. Not only was he active with Pennsy sports but he assisted in Altoona High and Altoona independent endeavors, being an official two weeks ago at the district No. 0, P. I. A. A. track and field meet. It is a tribute to his ability as a booster and promoter and sports enthusiast that his Middle Division track and Held teams led in tho scoring for all Pennsy system meets in past years. Wns Real Friend of All Charley McCurdy's passing, is a severe blow to sports on the Middle division for he was the big moving factor. He liked nothing better than sponsoring a sport event. He set a fine example for the Middle Division to fol- low and one of the finest tributes thai! his fellow associates can pay will be to "carry on", for championships were Charley McCurdy's annual rewards and Middle Division must continue this record in memory of thla line booster. Quiet, unassuming, always smiling, Charley McCurdy will long be remembered. He was a friend of all. Charley "died in the harness". Bedfast a week ago he was unable to officiate at the P. I. A. A. track and field meet but he left his bed last Thursday to preside as medals and sweaters were presented at a dinner at the South Altoona clubhouse. He was ill then but he wanted to go through with the program. He expressed the hope then that he would soon be fit,'that he would "shake it off." And Mr. McCurdy's statement at the dinner meeting, "we're glad you enjoyed yourselves", in response to the thanks of the cage players, best portrays the real Charley McCurdy. He was glad when all others were enjoying themselves to the utmost. His place is going to be hard to fill. He'll be missed in the many activities that he was a leading part, thinks You Should Know The Civic-Mercantile Baseball league had to pass up a fine night for a ball game, as the Cricket field was undergoing repairs last night. -A. R. Aukerman, Blair league and C-M league president is sojourning down Atlanta, Ga., way this week motoring south several days ago.——Ball fans saw two different Altoona Works teams perform Satur.day. . . . For six rounds the Works team was an amateurish team . . . and then for the final three rounds the ball club was a real champion . . . and fans liked the latter club the best.-—-Two Juniata college baseball stars broke into the Blair league last Saturday, Zeke LaPorte beinjj with the Springs and Andrews at first base for Lightmen . . . and both gave a very good account of themselves. A triple play engineered .by the Altoona Business club was a big help in the teams.weekend game and the three-ply killing came in the ninth inning with two down . . . and Business club won by a lone run margin . . . but it was a narrow squeak. The Altoona Merchants sure got in solid with the baseball fans way up at Ford City, the local semi-pro's winning the pair of Memorial games by nice scores, too . . . and the trip sure boosted the Merchants stock a whole lot. In the <3-M ball league players and fans are still talking about a hit scored by Wiltse Kyler . . . the batter juking to escape a close pitch and the next thing fans knew the ball was out in center field, a safe hit. -Louie Porta, Works catcher, likes to peep at the runners on the paths and he enjoys nipping 'em . . . and he got a laugh when he bagged one at second Saturday. MAJOR LEAGUERS CLUB HOME RUNS NEW YORK, June 3.—Baseball fans Were up in ( arms against the "cheap home run." There were 24 homers made in the ten major league games Sunday, making the third time In eleven day* the former record of 23 homers in both league! in one day, set July 4, 1925, has been broken. Over 400 homo runs have been made in both major leagues thus far this season, fifty more than at a corresponding date last year. The "lively ball," short fences, restrictions on the pitchers and other elements are hastening to make a "joke" out of major league home runs. Even pitchers are swinging for homers. The three big home days this season follow: tytay 22—26 homers, 10 games. May 30^—27 homers, 14 games. June 1—24 homers, 10 games. Recofds of all descriptions are crashing right and left under this most violent homer craze of all time. A new record was hung up Sunday when 16 homers were hit in the National league, breaking the former record of 15 for one major league In one day. In three days there have been 56 home runs hit in the two major leagues. JUNIATA Y NINE WINS BALL GAMES The newly organized Juniata Y baseball team took four victories over the past week-end,- their victims being Logan Valley, Y. M. H. A., and Greenwood.

(Copyright, 1830, Of Altoona Mirror.) NEW YORK, June 3.—Having slipped through the cycle that terminates with Memorial day, the major league baseball clubs are now bound into the next, and more Important cycle, that ending with the Fourth of July. It has been affirmed often that If a team stands in the lead when the Fourth of July battles come off its chances of finishing first in the race are greatly enhanced. This has been proved correct, and also unsound, which is the case with about everything In baseball. As the teams settle Into the drive between Memorial day and the Fourth of July, several changes are In evidence as having taken place since the beginning of the year. The Boston Nationals have Burlelgh Grimes, instead of Pittsburgh. He is not at his best, but at least he Is trying hard. George Slsler is playing first for Boston, experience and batting skill having triumphed over youth. Ed Moore has reverted to the outfield and Wal'er Berger is proving to be an outfielder that the Cubs should have taken from Los Angeles. The Giants have lost Larry Benton and Crawford. Hughey Critz, Pete Donohue and Ethan Allen have come to them from Cincinnati. Of the three, Allen Is as good as any, If he is not injured and is physically fit otherwise. Those who Insisted that at the moment when Crltz joined the Giants, the New York team would prove to be immediate winners are a little delirious to" discover that Critz is not an immediate life-saver and that the Giants need more than Crltz to get them straightened around. The Brooklyn Robins have found Mickey Finn and Osie Slade, two California youngsters, can be used to advantage, although Uncle Wilbert Robinson, the manager, sticks to the old- timers because of a : Jew England sen- tlm»nt for the antique. Glenn Wright has shown that he Is good. Bissonette's head is sound again and Al Lopez has earned a job as regular catcher. Babe Herman has shown great improvement as a batter and various stories are being brought to light reciting the managers who would not pay $50 for him In earlier days. In those tlmej he wasn't worth $50, but Uncle Wilbert saw his possibilities and is entitled to credit for his perception. The Philadelphia Nationals have flat-tired'because of the absolute irresponsibility of the pitching department. Pittsburgh has Flagstead in the outfield and Fred Brlckell too; has made Bool a steady behind the hat; is grooming Chagnon to become a regular pitcher and has been without Pie Traynor and both the Waners at times; altogether a great mix-up. Cincinnati has moved its men about so often that the team doesn't resemble that at Orlando In the spring. Critz is gone, with Leo Durocher in his place. Kelly is 111 and Harry Heilmann is at first. Swanson is in the outfield after accidents. Stripp is the regular third baseman. St. Louis foolishly monkeyed with Frankie Frisch at third and then put him at second where he belonged. Chicago has been knocked galley west by the loss of Rogers Hornsby, death of Hal Carlson and a backward pitching staff which looked good enough In the spring. The Chicago White Sox have been pursuing the same vacillating policy of other years as have the St. Louis Browns. Cleveland has experimented in pitchers. Detroit finally has got rid of Harry Rice and Owen Carroll, whom it didn't want and send Wuestling along for good measure so that the Yankees might have a substitute shortstop. The Yanks have dropped Waite Hoyt and Mark Koenlg. The former has been faltering, because of his own foolishness, and Koenig will help Detroit. Rice is a substantial outfielder, but he will have to play ball for New York or quit. The Athletics are about the same but they are ready to put Williams in at second base at any time and maybe make a change at short. The Boston Americans traded Charlie Ruffing to New York, where the latter began to win. Carroll perhaps can win for New York also because he was a fizzle at Detroit. Change helps sometimes.
