Pour of the hits were home runs tfid three were doubles. <3ne big inning, the fifth, when ttnn Central more than batted around storing 8 runs, put the game away for IB* Lightmen. A home run, a double, tttree singles, an error, two bases on bills and a wild pitch all helped in the •COflng of runs in the big inning. 'All of Penn Centrals players aided in th« scoring and Fuzzy Andrews was th» only player not getting In the hit column. Frank Chadwick led the at- ta%k with 3 hits in 4 times at bat. Appleman, Hickey, Walters and Chemcn- tl'tvere the home run producers. North Side Civics showed off some teal ball players. Johnny Cumfngs, former New York Giants, did the receiving and his play as well as his line of chatter kept the fans going all feV«ning. He chased Ted Appleman to the flag pole on his first trip to the plate, Ted making a. great running catch of a fly which was tagged for a homer. He walked his next two times up and shot a hot single to center on his last time at bat. The Rooney brothers covered two oUtfleld positions, Jim, Pitt's football halfback was in right and Art played center. Penn Central trotted out a new hurler, Paul Efemna, and he showed plenty of stuff in his first appearance. He allowed 10 hits, but kept them well scattered. He allowed one hit in every inning except the fifth and seventh when two hits were secured. He did his best hurling with men. on bases. North Side Civics showed three hurlers. Daniels, elongated mounds- man started, but a sore arm forced him to retire with 2-3 of an inning gone in the first. Reider then took up the burden and lasted until the big eighth, when Vaughn started pitching. Penn Central started scoring in the first. Chadwick opened the game with a single. Chementi sacrificed him to second. Appleman grounded out to short. Athey singled and Chadwick scored. White grounded out. Penn Central secured a. three run lead by scoring twice in the third.

When the six teams clashed several weeks ago fans saw some nice games. Roaring Spring beat Martinsburg by a 4-3 score the winning run coming in (he ninth inning. Lightmen defeated Williamsburg 6-3 after Williamsburg held a five inning lead. And Duncansville beat Claysburg 11-8 in a free hitting game that was real interesting. All six teams arc moving along in smoother shape right now and three tight scraps are due today. And you would be foolish to count on any of the six entries as certain winners. Odd Fellows Unlucky The new ball team in the Civic- Mercantile Baseball league, the Ben S. Davis lodge of Odd Fellows, is creating quite a stir even though the. lodge- men are resting in the cellar position. The Odd Fellows are demonstrating that it is .possible to be a basement entry and still be real popular. Just breaking into the C-M circuit the goat-riders played four games and each one of the "games was a real battle. In fact, the quartet of contests proved the high spots of the C-M schedule thus far this season. Each was completed showing a one run margin. The reason the Odd Fellows are in the basement is because the team lost three of the 1-run margin games. And it's just a stroke of real tough luck that finds the team in the cellar. The club won't lose many more close ones for the punch needed to turn in the close wins is now being supplied. Fans are getting a real kick out of the play of the Odd Fellows and the team is more popular right now than some of the higher up teams, because the team is playing good baseball with plenty of pepper, too. Called On Hurlers Often Although the Altoona Works baseball team has performed in just fourteen gartes this season, Manager John Dewey Logue has had to call upon twenty-four pitchers. That might sound funny "calling on twenty-four hurlers" when he only has a corps of six chuckers. But it happened. He called on the six pitchers just twenty-four times. In just six of the games this season the starting pitcher has been the finishing, or the finished pitcher. In eight games more than one chucker has been used. Lefty Grove was called upon on seven occasions to hurl. He started three games and was sought for relief duty in four others. He finished one game that he started. He has three wins and one loss thus far. Hen Leastire pitched four times this season and he finished two of them. Moe Roberts pitched in five games and he went through two of them without aid. Bolger hurled 3 games, Davis 3 and Lefty Antes 2 games. Four hurlers were used in one game and Altoona actually won despite the many changes, too. Things You (Should Know That Mike Fagan inserted a peculiar kind of error in the Pitcairn game and the offense almost bordered on a hit . . . Mike posed to catch a high fly ball at deep short . . . and Mike thought it would be too easy and he tried to TWO CLOSE GAMES FOR CHURCH TEAMS Lakemont Methodists and First Brethren won games in the Inter- Church Baseball league last evening the games concluding a week of real surprises in the league. Lakemont grabbed off first place with five wins in a row, the victory last night being over the Twenty- Eighth Street Church of the Brethren by a 13-11 score. Errors let in .plenty of runs for the winners. At Gamble hill Uie Bethany Lutheran team lost the third straight decision by an 8-6 score as the First Brethren team captured the margin.

The cup was won in the Blair High league during the past season Altoona winning ten straight ball games without a single defeat. The maroons had more baseball players the past season than ever before more than fifty candidates playing during the early weeks. The squad contained twenty players at the season close. During the greater part of the season Altoona High had Bud Weld, John Mallam, Louie DeStefano and Petrarco as hurlers with Neugebauer, Cipriano and Ty Rush catching. In the infield the team had Markle, Replogle, E. Rush and Don Lane. In the garden were Altier, Beckel and Lobre.

Umpire, Kothen- LAKEMONT TEAM IS LEADINGJN RACE The Inter-Church Sunday school baseball league is coming along in ilne style. To date there remains but one postponed game to be played and this game will be taken care of in the near future. Bethany Lutheran started the season in a champion style but they seem to have hit a snag. Winning three games, then losing two gives them a percentage little better than half. Twenty-eighth Street Church of the Brethren certainly has fallen way below par. Out of live starts they have won one and lost four. The Brat Brethren team hasn't really got started to show their wares and from all Indications they are certainly capable of having results. Lakemont Methodists have proven themselves in a very line fashion to be the 1'eaders and that they are. Fro;n four starts they boast of four wins. No other team in the league can do that. At the regular meeting of the Inter- Church league representatives Thursday evening, the First United Brethren team was given a franchise in the league. But do to the fact of the lateness In the first cycle of play, it would be practically impossible to permit them to play and have the cycle end on time. It is with regret that they must be denied the privilege of playing- in the first cycle for they will be worthy opponents. They will be ready to start play in the second cycle. A new schedule will bo drawn up in the new future and made public. The new team will use as their home lield, Gamble lield. This weeks regular scheduled games: Monday. 28th Street Church of the Brethren vs. Bethany Lutheran at 31st Field. Tuesday. Lakemont. M. E. vs. First Brethren at 31st Field. I'rlduy.

LOUIS, June 7.—Leroy Mahaffey hit a home run and accounted for a pair of runs to help the Athletics win yesterday from St. Louis 5 to 4.

FOSTER (Copyright, 1930, by Altoona Mirror;) NEW YORK, June 7.—The biggest surprise in the National league, or in the American, either, for the last few days has been the deep furrow that Chicago has been ploughing in the championship race of the senior organization. If they continue it, Joe McCarthy will have credit for putting together the best reserve nine that major league baseball has seen in ten years and more. , On the morning of Memorial day in Chicago, Rogers Hornsby was injured and it was said that he would need at least six weeks on the farm to let his ankle bone repair. McCarthy shitted his team around to meet the emergency, placing Vick Blair on second, Woody English on third base and Clyde Beck at short. Other positions were left as they were. The team won its first game, thus arranged. The score was 9 to 8 and St. Louis was the victim. On the next afternoon St. Louis was defeated again, 6 to 5, and on June 1, Pittsburgh was beaten, 16-1. Then the Cubs took the limited to the east and won twice from Boston by scores of 15 to 2 and 18-10. That made six victories in succession for the reserves and eight straight for the team. .These six games played by the reserves are much out of the ordinary because they show hitting strength that the Cubs had hot possessed before. Chicago had been batting under .285 which was much below the standard set by the team last year, when It won the championship. In tha first six games in which this rebuilt Chicago team has played, it has batted for .308, miles better than it had been doing and better than any record that it has made since the beginning of this year. They made a total of 69 base hits and 74 runs to 33 by their opponents. If the Cubs could play baseball the remainder of the year a t that speed there is not a team in the National league that shows strength enough to defeat it for the pennant and it might go farther and win the world series. Blair not. only has played second base well enough, but he has been the best lead off majj the Cubs have had. English has played third better than any man that the Cubs have tried at that base since McCarthy became manager. Beck has been a utility player of dependability and his skill is now proving its value. Naturally the problem in regard to Chicago lies in how far it can go until Hornsby returns and there might be even another problem when he recovers. Whether it would be advisable to make a change if the team continues as it is doing now. PICK DRAWINGS FOR CITY NET TITLE PLAX Entries for the sixth annual city championship tennis tournament will close at 7 o'clock this evening, and the drawings will be made by the tournament committee at the Altoona Y. M. C. A. Already a large entry list has been received in the singles, and the usual number for the doubles. The tourney this year promises to be one of the most hotly contested in its history, and a number of younger players will make a strong bid to place in the finals. Juniata has a representative team entered in both events, and these players have been practicing regularly on the Thirteenth Ward courts. Any player who was unable to file the formal entry may telephone his entry to the Y. M. C. A. this evening prior to the time the drawings are made and the Committee will accept it. The drawings will, be posted at the Court and at the Y. M. C. A. Monday, as well as being published in the daily papers, together with a Register of the players and their telephone numbers. All contestants must get in touch with their opponents Monday and arrange j to play their first round not later-than Tuesday evening. The doubles will not start until Tuesday.
