'\'N Works, ReJ ifattaf from Sick Spell, Ifolpft Retire 14 Batters it Champions fake 5 to 1 Victory. HA8 FBftflCY DAY. MERRY MAKES A. tot of baseball fans, coatless and Iftjoylng an Ideal evening in the stands ' »t th* Pennsy Cricket field, got a >$1efcsant surprise last evening and all tit 'em went home happy. The fans turned out to see the Pit- J cairn P. R. R. baseball team play. Well, Pltcalrn played, but not near good enough to hold the Works and Altoona won 5 to 1. The surprising part of the affair was turned In by Al Ashburn, Works faV- oflte. Al knew the fans wanted to see PHcairn but he stole all the spotlight as It were. He staged a field day and Pitcalrn got the Idea that Al wan .the only ball player on the field. Covering second base, the recently recuperated plfcyer was kept busier than a -one-armed paperhanger. Al grabbed off four pop files and handled ten rollers in the neighborhood of second base, assisting la fourteen of the teams twenty-seven putouts. In fact he helped In over half the necessary retirements. At the stick Al wasn't, able to do a thing and he stepped up five times only to go hitless. Al swung from the right side of the plate due to Lefty Brlnkers portside chucking. On his last trip he hit left handed against Mr. Hilty. The Works won the ball game in the third inning when all 5 runs chased over the rubber. And a lot of the run making was Lefty Brinker's own fault. He had the whole Works team figuring Out Insurance problems up at the plate and all batters wondered whether the life and accident insurance policies were paid up or not. Brinker hit three batters and'dusted off a lot more. Moe Roberts was first up in the third. He went out Dude Thomas singled and stole second base. Harber was patient and walked most of the patience, however, being ducking wild throws. Beebie Roth was hit and the bags were loaded. Pete Franks pasted a safe blow to center field and 2 runs were in. Mike Fagan belted one to send Roth in home. John Fagan halted' a wild pitch and again the bags were full. Louie Porta singled to cen- ,ter field to push in two pals. Then came a pair of outs and the end of the round. Moe Roberts looked after the Pitcairn batters to perfection and 3 measly singles were allowed in the first eight rounds. In the ninth as the fans were filing out of the park Durkia slammed one deep into the left center bleacher for a home run, saving a Pitcairn whitewash. Altoona batted against County Elvin Hilty in the eighth inning. He fanned the first batter. Porta hit. Roberts whiffed and Dude Thomas pushed one through the box a mile a minute. Ashburn made the final out. I Ollie Carnegie, who use to hii home j runs for Pitcalrn, but who plays cen- I ter field right now, pulled the fielding | stunt of the ball game. He robbed Pete Franks of a double when he made a one hand stab of a drive that was ready to fall into the stands. John Fagan made a nice catch along the left field toothpaste strip. ^ Altoona is playing at Lewistown today. The team will be honle with Hummelstown Echo Cave learn Saturday at 3. LineuRs: •'. Alt.

An uiual we're first lo show 'em at M.S > i A i A i JII3 KI.KVK.NTH TWO NEW PENN CENTRAL MEN READY FOR EXHIBITION GAME Fans will find many changes in the Penn Central lineup when they face the North Side Civics on f rlday evening on the new Maple avenue field, at Maple avenue and Twenty-fourth street at 5 o'clock. Bernard Andrews, who has starred for Junlata college in baseball, basketball and football for the past three years has joined the • Penn Central squad since the closing of school and will fill the first base position. Fuddlo Athey Who has been filling In at first base has been moved to his original place at second. Frank Chadwick, who was added to the squad last week and played several games at second base was moved over short stop, the position he played in the Mid- Atlantic league. Vincent Chementi, former Lafayette college athlete who had been playing short has been moved to third base, and Bob Walters who had been play- Ing third base is moved to the outfield, a place where he is best fitted. With the above changes the Penn Central team has already shown Improvement. Penn Central has also added two new players to their squad. George Durnlng an outfielder who last year pastimed with the Cumberland team has just reported and will get his first chance in the coming game with the North Side Civics. Burning was a member of the same club on which Dude Thomas played. A new hurler has also joined the squad, Ufemna, who hails from Hamilton, Ontario, and It would not be surprising to see Manager Greiner put him to work against the Civics on Friday evening. All of Penn Centrals pitchers are ready to go in this week ends games. Lefty Wilson who hurled Penn Central to a shut out victory on Saturday over Martinsburg, Lefty Vaughn, Johnny Lockard and Ace Kelley all are ready to start. Penn Centrals Friday opponent the North Side Civics, at the present time are in third place in the Pittsburgh City league and this week they copped two league games, winning one 21 to 0 and the other 15 to 1. Players for the Civics include, Johnny Cummins, former New York Giant catcher; Joe Dawson, former Pittsburgh pirate pitcher; Eddie Baker and Jim Rooney, Pitt football stars and Manager Art Rooney himself who plays centerfleld. NEW LIOHTMAN, BERNARD ANDREWS. Junlata college athlete Is a now performer for the Penn Central, JUIalr Baseball league entry. He is a first baseman. "Fuzzy" covered first for Junlata college the past few seasons. He is also a star football player. WATCHING the SCOREBOARD Yesterday's hero—Kiki Cuyler of the Chicago Cubs, who had a perfect day at bat with a homer, a double and three singles, driving in 4 runs and scoring 4 in the Cubs' 18 to 10 victory over Boston. Connie Mack has eliminated the Philadelphia Athletics' only weakness —lack of capable reserve material— and the 1929 world champions appear headed for their second consecutive American league pennant. Three Athletics regulars, outfielder Al Simmons, third baseman Jimmy Dykes and second baseman Max Bishop have been on the hospital list during the past week, but the reserves have come through capably and the Athletics have climbed into the league lead. Wednesday's 4 to 3 victory over St. Louis was the tenth consecutive win for the Athletics, who now boast the longest winning streak made my any major league team this season. Kiki Cuyler and Giggs Stephenson led a 20-hit bargage which enabled the Chicago Cubs to defeat Boston, 18 to 10, for their seventh straight victory. The victory advanced the Cubs to within two agmes of the league lead- Ing Brooklyn Robins. Brooklyn dropped a loosely played game to Pittsburgh, 12 to 6. The two teams set a season's record for errors, Brooklyn making 8 and Pittsburgh 5, four of which were charged to shortstop Engle. Washington kept pace with ^the" Philadelphia Athletics in the American league, winning an 11-inning game from Detroit, 11 to 8. Detroit tied the score in the ninth but the Senators tallied three times in the tenth. Johnny Kerr's homer, in the tenth, SHARKEY ANXIOUS FOR CHAMP TITLE ORANQBBURQ, N. Y., June 6.— Glory, not money,. Is the big Incentive behind Jack Sharkey'a drive to win the heavyweight championship when he meets Max Schmeling of Germany at Yankee stadium, June 12. From the' first Shar'key has stressed the fact that the match must be for the heavyweight title, and to help insure this stipulation the Bostonlan accepted a cut In hla guarantee. The official contracts were signed on Monday, and* for the first time In history of boxing In New York state they stipulated that the winner would be declared heavyweight champ'lon. The contracts for the Dempsey-Firpo and Dempsey-Brennan fights did not make any reference to the title, although Dempsey was recognized as champion. Sharkey is the first fighter to battle for the championship, without needing the money. Dempsey, Tunney, Willard, Johnson, Jeffries, Fltz- simmons and Corbett were badly in need of money when they made their successful championship battles. Sharkey has collected $800,000 In six years in the ring, and he has invested it wisely. He could retire from the ring tomorrow and live Comfortably, on the earnings from his savings. "I want that title," Sharkey repeated. "Twice I was almost the challenger against Tunney and then I became discouraged. Even as late as when I fought Strlbling I had almost given up hope of ever, Winning It. The reason why I consented to fight Phil Scott was to get him out of the Way to clear the path for this title' match against Schmeling." Sharkey pictured himself as the standard bearer of America, and he never misses an opportunity to stress the fact that he is an American despite Lithuanian parents and is fighting to keep the championship on this side. I OWNS DERBY WlKHIft with two out, gave the Chicago White Sox an 1 to 7 victory over the New York Yankees, after Babe Ruth's homer with two- on in the seventh had tied the score at 7 all. Ruth's homer, his 18th of the year, .put him three days ahead of his recotd 1927 schedule. Red Lucas was hit for 5 hits and 5 runs by the first five batsmen and the New York Olants defeated Cincinnati, 8 to 5. Scarritt's single, scoring Reeves, gave "Big Ed" Morris a victory over Wesley Ferrell in a 10-innlng pitching duel, Boston defeating Cleveland, 5 to 4. Ray Benge held St. Louis to 4 hits and Philadelphia beat the Cardinals, 2 to 1. SENATORS FINISH GOOD. DETROIT, June 5.—It took Washington ten Innings to win from Detroit yesterday, 3 runs counting in the extra frame for an 11-8 score. Joe Cronin drove in 4 runs with a homer and two bagger.

Now you carry free lunch to the fish in a classy-looking tin aquarium. But to thousands, "B.P." means "BAYUK PHILLIES''—the cigar that gives you what you expect from tobacco. In other words, the TRUE-TOBACCO TASTE. Because "PHILLIES" are ripe tobacco. The top and bottom leaves of tobacco plants never get into "PH I LLI ES." They're generally bitter or without any flavor. They're the kind you don't like to taste. It's the middle leaves—the just-ripe leaves — that make "PHILLIES" the cool, smooth smoke they are.
