In the second game the Arkansas-Missouri Power company breezed through with a 9 to 0 triumph over a patchwork McMullln Grocery team behind the two-hit hurling of T/?o Stephens. Last night's \vhi put the Chevrolet 'club but a half game behind Pastime in th2 league race. The clash of. the Chevrolcts and the V-8's was a "natural" vvHIi much interest having been aroused in the contest by salesmen and em- ployes of the two. motor companies. It was the first meeting of the two teams- since the Tom Little Chevrolet company took over the Robinson Drug company franchise In the loop. V-8's Take Skids 'Die V-8's held an edge until the fourth Inning when their pitching and defense went to pieces at the same time ami 10 Chevrolet runners crossed the plnte. The V-8's matie a gallant effort to rally, psr- ticulaily In the seventh Inning when they scored four runs but the big;lead was too much to overcome. The V-B's started It oir with a run in the first inning while the Chfeviolets went sWreless 'and increased their lead to four runs by put-liing three across the plate In the first half of the third. The Chevrolcts made their first scores when they tallied twice in the last half of the Uilrd. Phillips made one In the first half of the fourth and then came the deluge. Eight hits, two errors nnd a pair of walks were put to- getherby the Chcvrolets to run up a total of 10 runs: Jimmy Smoth crmaii, starting V-8 hurler, was forced to leave the mound In the foifrth. ircGep relieving him, smo thermal! went to McGce's rlstil Held post i Rimer Goi'S to Mound Rimer was called to the mound toireheie Carter for Chevrolet in the, flnal Inning when the V-8's began to threaten seriously.

' Today's Games Bottlers to Play Toledo On Aug.26 The Toledo, O. champions of Ihc soft bull world mid the Coca Cola Bottlers of Memphis, Tenn., southern champions, will clash In an exhibition game hero on Wednesday night, Aug. 26, 11 was announced following a meeting' of directors of the Commercial soft ball league yesterday. The Bottlers have appeared here once before this season, taking the measure of tin; local All-Stars In n one-sided game with the Bottlers' three nces, Trlplclt, Stainback nnd Gunn, working on the mound. The Coca Cola array Is easily the class of the mid-south and will be able to extend the Toledo stars more than any other team In tills section. The appearance of the crack Ohio cluh und the Bottlers is expected to draw the largest crowd ever to witness n soil ball game at Haley Field. The type of game wilj bo far above anything sort fell'fans ordinarily have a chance to witness around here and the growth in interest In the sport in northeast Arkansas and southeast Missouri is certain to provide real Interest, in the spectacle. The Bottlers are not only crack players but compose one of the most colorful squads in the country. Attired In brilliant uniforms they compel attention ami the presence" of a couple of "screwballs" on the team ads to their drawing power. R. D. Hughes and Famous Store will play a preliminary game. Yankees, Cardinals, Giants Win Despite Loss of Hurling iilars IIY lUltltY GKAYSON Sjjorls Kdilur, NEA Service NftW YORK, Aug. 20. — N c W York Yankees proved their worth this season by virtually clinch. ii)B the American League nen- nunl with little help from Ver- noii Gome*, one of the highest raiarlcd sllngers in the dodge. The Hi, Louis Cardinals have struggled Htong without Paul Dean, thanks largely to the heroic eflorts of his Irrepressible brother Uin/.y. Mill Hclnimncher nnd Fred FiU- slmmons were hampered by bad arms for c|iilu> u spell, but there it n; the New York Olants coming from behind for u change. Other stars 01 1035 who have been disappointing to various dc- Brcus this tilp are Paul Derringer of the Ueils, Cy lilunton of the I'lrntes, Lon Warneke of the Cubs, Ted Lyons of the ,WhitC''Sox, Bob Grove and Wesley Pcrrell of the Red Sox, Willis Ilucllin and Mel Harder of the Indium Schoolboy Rowe and Eldcn Auker of the Tigers, and Johnny Broaca of the Yankees. ' Goimv. perhaps is the most annoying example of the array of lading mound satellites. Having earned u two-season agreement at. ?20,oao per on the strength of his phenomenal 1934 record of 2(i victories and only five defeats, the Castillian southpaw evidently proceeded to acquire an unsntia- blc desire for night life. Gome/, turned in only a dozen victories as against 15 reverses In 1935 Onmi-z Night Lcagut star At the age of 25, the California]! was .slipping so fast this season that the management saw fit to put coppers on his tail In order to get the frazzled Ilinger in bed uetrne dnyllghl. When Gome/, who weighs under 150 pounds, first joined 1 the Supports he spent off-seasons building himself up in his native wild and woolly west. He has ne"- icctcd to do this since crashing the more important money class nnd the results are obvious. With the expiration of his contract this fail, it is a leailplne cinch that Gomez will get no" fat salary agreement, for next year. Lefty says that there Is nothing wrong with his arm, but the careful" Colonel Ruppert "won't shell out until he gets value received. Looking at the Cardinals, es- pecially their pitching, you get the Idea that Frankio Frkch must do It with mirroiis. Naturally, Dizzy Dean carries the hod. The Orcat One made his task harder this Etason by prevailing upon Brother Paul to hold out soon after too little spring training, and has been a washout since the early weeks of the campaign. One reason why the Giants now are favored by many to give New York a 5-cent scries this autumn Is llmt the array remained within striking distance during the time that both Schumacher and FitTslmmons were handicapped by sore arms. Derringer Has Difficulties Main problem before the house In Cincinnati Red circles today is not the production of an infielder to replace Capt. Billy Myers, hut how to get Dealer Derringer back on the victory path. The' large righthander hasn't had much luck since he trimmed the Cubs nt Crossley Field hi a night game, June 29. Instead of being the .trail blazer for the Reds in their drive to sew up a first division berth, Derringer 1ms been the anchor which has held them In the lower strata.. On his 1935 record of 22 victories iind 13 defeats and defensive average of 3.51 earned runs for cnch nine Innings, Derringer figured to pace this year's staff niici take the Reds up the ladder if given some help. The help arrived, and up to the end of June he was doing that very thing. Then he hit the skids. What to do about Derringer is the question in the Rhlncland. It has been suggested that Charley Dressvn send him to Toronto That worked with Si Johnson, who returned to be a winner for the Cards. ;. ' i. When owners investigate ball players who fall before the natural period of deteloration, they frequently find that the fault Is not meiCianlcal. Derringer Iradj matrimonial difficulties. A ball player has to keep his mind on the game.
