To Muse and Amuse By SI'OKTS BDITOH Wotltt Pleasing; ? em Th« Altobna Works baseball team, Pennsy system champions, are pleasing the ball fans and the Cricket field pastime has never been more popular than rieht now. The best ball teams available are stopping off in Altoona for exhibitions ' »na all the visiting teams have real « reputations. * The ball crowds for the Works 1 pamea have been record breaking all 'season and fans are giving real sup' port to the Boss Logue performers. W And the fine support of the fans is j needed, too. Heavy guarantees are required .for all the visiting teams, especially as no return game can be t>layed. The heaviest schedule ever attempted by an Altoona Independent team has been arranged for the Works and three and four games weekly comprise lh« game list for the balance of the season. Th2 Works players will do f their part and it'll be up to the fans if to make it worth while by their con> t , tinued attendance. Bttrj Hi Athlete Honored ! Frank "Red" Stultz, Hollldaysburg • High graduate this term, was highly { honored at the commencement exer- i cises at the Burg this week, being f selected as the winner of the annual ] Judge Thomas J. Baldrige $25 award - for tlie best all-around student. Stultz Is one of the county seat's stellar athletes. He was quarterback on the football team for three seasons. He also won letters in basketball and track, being the star sprinter of the Burg team. Red will enter Lehigh university in the fall and will go in for athletics at the college. J In winning the Baldrige award the 5 scholastic record and achievement, ex- It tra curricular activities, general school t«and community spirit, school and com- -munHy citizenship and habits in and I out of school are considered, t Frank intends seeking an industrial - engineering degree. He will also seek ' an appointment to West Point in 1931. Hard to Meet Expenses Dragging in the finances to "carry on" in baseball is a pretty tough proposition for a lot of independent and twilight league ball teams in Altoona and vicinity. On many ball lots no general admission is charged and all fans are invited to attend, to grab a seat or standing room. The hat is passed almost every night and ball teams have been depending on the collections to meet expenses. The collection business isn't a very profitable one for mighty few fans are generous enough to drop in a quarter, or a dime. One league, specializing in ball games every night, reported a total of 93 cents In the "hat" for one game and donations of less than $1.60 in two other games. And a couple hundred fans were present. Ball teams have to pare expenses to the bone to keep from going into • "athletic bankruptcy". And the teams ' deserve a lot of praise, and better support, just because they are carrying on even though they have to pay their own way. Have Hospital List Crist Davis, veteran flinger for the Altoona Works ball team is the first casualty of the season. And the ball fans are hoping that his recovery will be speedy for his services are badly needed for the heavy Works schedule, Crist has a broken shoulder blade. He was hurt in practice, a line drive from the bat of John Fagan hitting the curver and Crist had some pictures taken. The photos aren't the kind that one sends out as gifts, however, being X-ray prints. Watson, utility'outfielder, who made a fine Impression in the several games 1 that he took part in this season, Is also on the hospital list with a foot injury. He is limping around and he can perform if needed. Thing* You Should Know That the Altoona Works season Isn't very old but all fans of the Pennsy champions have plenty to talk about and a gathering of ball fans isn't complete unless someone, starts to tell about the great fielding or timely batting stunt of some Works individual . . . the whole lineup starring in one or more games, this season. Leo Carroll, who chucked Roaring Spring to a Memorial day win in this city is hurling great ball for Dormont in the Pittsburgh league and his hits have been very scattered all season.—-It took this Claysburg Blair league entry an awful long time to get started but after five 'straight losses the Bricktown entered the win column . . . and the team has fourteen more games in which to make up lost ground . . . and incidentally this is the first time ever than Clayaburg has been in the Blair basement. Just twelve new race drivers made their appearance on the AJtoona board oval > last year in the two race/i . . . and that's the highest total of newcomers in any one year on any oval, excepting the Hoosier track.

Goodyear can give you greater tire values because Goodyear t builds more than. of all the tires solJ. in Aineriea, the remainder being divided among some fifty manufacturers. "More people ride on Goodyear Tires than on any other kind." BY NO MEANS "ONE OF THE STANDARD MAKES" The leading tire companies are sometimes called "the big five"—their tires "the standard makes". We think this is a grand "break" for the other four, but something of a hardship on Goodyear. The fact is, Goodyear builds MILLIONS MORE tires than any other manufacturer. Goodyear gained this world-leadership by building tires that are emphatically and conspicuously SUPER- standard. More people ride on Goodyears because Goodyears are better tires to ride on!
