With no outs in the ninth and the tying run on third, Charley Gehringer filed out to Dimaggio in deep left field and the Italian outfielder propelled a perfect throw right into Bill Dickey's hands to double Pete Fox at the plate. At this point, a fan in the Elands stood up and started waving a huge Italian flag on a long pole. The Timers scored a run in the first on Charley Gehrineer's double and Goose Goslin's single, but Dickey hit his fifth home run of the year in the second to tie the score.

MINOR NINE HAS FAVORABLE YEAR Series Win Over Papooses Is High Spot of Millsaps Frosh Season Laying aside bats and gloves to take part in a rigorous spring iool-ball session, Minor athletes review with satisfaction a baseball season decidedly in their favor. High spot for diamond devotees of a season in which the Mill saps frosh took the measure of Raymond, Perk, and Mississippi College was the 2-1 series win over the Baby - Chocs. Against the Papooses Minor stickmen and moundmen worked to perfection. Most serious opposition to yearling efforts' came from- -Perkin-ston Junior College, with the Mlilsaps youngsters" splitting a two-game series. Each squad ''got one game of each meeting. The yearlings whitewashed Raymond, and allowed the Papooses one game of three played. Minor candidates who saw most action during the 1936 baseball season were Ballard, catcher; Hill, pitcher; Tally, first base; Elfert, second base; Horton, third base; Cox, shortstop; Parnell, Price and Cooper, outfield.

Foxx Hits 7th, 8th In 9 To 6 Win BOSTON, May 7 (JPh-Jknmy Foxx seventh and eighth home runs of the season, each of which came with a runner on, enabled the Boston Red Sox to wind up their stay today with a 9 to 6 victory over St. Louis. The triumph was the Golden Sockers' eighth success in nine starts against the four western clubs on their home preserves. The downfall was the 11th straight for Rogers Hornsby's players. The Sox decided the game by registering eight times against Russ Van Atta and Al Thomas during the first two innings. Foxx belted his homers over the left field wall. Rog Cramer was on second for the first smash. Just before Foxx lashed out his second, with Heinie Manush'bn third, Thomas replaced Van Atta. Wes Ferrell was belted in lusty fashion as he went to the distance for Boston, giving out 11 hits. Harlan Clift had a perfect day with a triple and three singles. The Browns put on a threatening three-run rally-in the fourth, to pull up to 8-4, but were unable to siytain the attack. The Red Sox made their ninth rim, in the. sixth, against Mike Meola,' who took over the mound when Thomas gave way to a pinch -hitter in the Browns' side of that frame. ST.

He was active on the floor and In committees to which he was assigned during the recent session. The entrance of Mr. May gives the Fifth District a three-cornered race despite Mr. Dunn's withdrawal.

Cut Off On Time Secondly the appropriations com mittee unanimously wrote Into the measure an amendment offered by Buchanan, stipulating that after June 30, 1937, the so-called emer gency agencies may not be given funds to carry on after their function has officially been terminated by court invalidation, completion of programs or otherwise. Thereafter congress must authorize their administrative expenses. Thirteen agencies, including the RFC and HOLC were specifically named. Thirdly, Representative Woodrum (D-Va) of the appropriations committee announced on the floor that "we are trying to close up shop and get out of the relief business, and that "the federal government should withdraw from direct relief as soon as possible." Before Woodrum spoke the ap propriations committee had trim med $75,000,000 off of the $1,500,-000,000 President Roosevelt ask3 for WPA alone. This was transferred to the CCC in line with an administration compromise, recently forced, to keep the authorized strength of the CCC up to 350,000 men with average of 2,066 camps until March 31, 1937. This was done despite Hopkins' testimony the full $1,500,000,000 would be insufficient to keep more than 2,000,000 of the more than 3,000,00 relief workers on the rolls the full year unless there was a pick-up in private employment. Transfer To States Woodrum said that while the $1,-425,000,000 might not be enough to meet all cases it was a step toward elimination of federal responsibility and its transfer to states and municipalities . With an estimated carry over of $1,000,000,000 from last year's $4,-880,000,000 relief appropriation, and approximately $600,000,000 for the CCC and public works the total available for work relief next year has been estimated by congressional authorities at $3,100,000,000, or nearly as much as the estimated $3,500,000,000 figured upon this fiscal year for similar purposes. DEFENDANT GIVEN FAVOR BY JURORS Federal Judge Charged "Flagrant and Unnecessary" Use of Firearms J. W. McRae, former Rankin county supervisor who was charged with negligence in une construc tion of a highway bridge while in office, and under suit for $10,000 in federal court since Monday, irn his case vesterdav when a iurv returned a verdict in his favor around three o'clock. The case had been brought against . McRae by L H. Russell, trustee for the estate of his brother. E. E. Russell, who was fatally injured at the bridge in question. The, Jury was given the case around noon Thursday and remained in session-debate for approximately three hours. The "flagrant and unnecessary use ' oi lire arms Dy leoerai 01-ficers in dealing with persons sus pected of liquor law violations was . vigorously assailed by Judge John McDuffie, of Mobile, yesterday. Charges were brought lortn from the presiding officer when Cecal Ford whose eye naa oeen put out, and his body peppered with shot by a raiding revenue officer at the scene of a whisky still, walked to the witness stand. He was discharged by McDuffie, and Sam Newman, the officer, was put on the stand to explain his actions. Following his arrest, the 45-year old Rankin county cripple was brought to the Hinds county jail, but later removed to a hospital by Sheriff John Roberts, where his eye was removed and wounds dressed. The officer admitted on the stand, that he shot Ford, and in answer to the Judge's questions admitted that he shot Ford, said that the man was unarmed and had his arms partially raised. He added, however, that at the time he had believed Ford armed. "It is to be expected", Judge McDuffie said, "that an officer should protect himself, but this thing of shooting a man when the occasion does not justify, will not be condoned. The prisoner is discharged." It was thought yesterday that further Investigations would be made of the shooting before the current term of Federal court ends. The grand Jury made its second report Thursday, and approximately 80 of the remaining 100 cases to be taken up, were turned out. s MORGAN HONORED NEW YORK, May 7 (JP For "distinguished services rendered to humanity" J. P. Morgan, the banker, today held a gold medal of the National Institute of Social Sciences. Responding to the presentation last night at the annual dinner of the institute, he said, in one of his infrequent public speeches, that he wondered why he was so honored.

Hoover also gave added details of the Campbell arrest, saying that Karpis pal had $2,00 Oon his person when arrested and Sam Cok-er, also arrested at Toledo today, had $1,900 on his person. Hoover referred to Coker as "one of our dear parole boys from McAlester, Okla., state penitentiary." Coker, he said, served a term there with Arthur "Doc" Barker, and other members of the Baker-Paris mob, which the capture of Campbell wiped out. Hoover described Coker as associated with the Barker-Karpis gang, but not in it. Although Coker could be charged with harboring a criminal, Hoover said he probably would be returned to Oklahoma penitentiary to serve the remaining 18 years of his 30-year sentence for a bank robbery at Nowata. Okla. Women Released Two women, a red haired girl called "Ruth Robinson." arrested with Karpis, and the 20 year old wife of Campbell, arrested with him were both released without being. charged with any offense. Campbell married the young girl Just about a year ago in Bowling Green, Ohio, Hoover said. That was only a few months after Campbell's "moll," Winona Burdette, had been captured -by the police after Campbell and Karpis fled an Atlantic City, N. J., hotel. The Burdette woman was Dolores Delaney, Karpis' favorite "moll," and both were sentenced to five years in Milan, Mich., detention farm for harboring the criminals. 1.
