The Chicago Cub blew chance to gain on the National league leaden today by etint only a split with the Dodgr ID a Sunday double-header. (Cantlnaea O Pts tea.) With two week of practice Just concluded, St. John' college football team 1 gradually beginning to chape up, and although hope for a win ning eleven are (tin at a low tide, work I going forward ln the hope that there may be a half dozen "finds" in the group of candidates attempting to fill berths left vacant by the graduation of eight lettermen. Coach Tim Moran"s greatest worry is the terminal positions, and In an effort to solve this problem he has spent two days drilling the entire squad in fundamentals of end play, and Intends to pick the most prom ising candidates Monday, when the first plays of the year will be pre sented to the squad. Sonny Randolph, last year start' ing center, who did not play the latter part of the season due to a leg injury, ha been shifted to the back- field and will share the blocking and plunging duties along with All-State Henry DeBroeck, who la playing bis last year with the Orioles, Paul DeBroeck, who Is rated as one of the best little guards ln this section of the state, has been taking it easy due to a knee Injury, but should be ready for action next week. Joe Mictotto, who is the "heaviest man" ever to attend St. John's, weighing 210 pounds, should have a great year at a tackle position, if his physical condition Improves. Frank Jones and William Presnall, the "Gold Dust" twins, although only weighing 123 pounds, do not draw the line on opponents of any size, and like good hard play better than any body on the squad. William Burnell, letterman from last year, will probably hold down the pivot position, but may be j shifted to end in an attempt to make use of his pass snatching ability. Glen and Jack Bonvilllon will prob ably hold down the halfback positions, and although rather small, both boys are triple threat men. The quarterback position will prob ably rest on the speedy shoulders of Harry Williams, who was largely responsible for the success of the Orioles during the past year. The new candidates trying out for the team are: Andy Cariere, John Tuminello, John Brocato, Jack Wilson, Alexander May, Charles May, Alfred Zelgler, Julius DeBroeck, Dom- lnick Cordaro, Jimmy McKenzie, Sonny Burns, Herschel Cobb and Dykes Leabo. Youngster Belters American League Hecord Set by Rube Waddell 28 Years Ago; Ties Dean's Major League Mark; Tribe Wins Two From Marks H Cleveland, Sept. 13 (JT). Bob Feller, husky high school rookie, wound up under a dark, sky today and blazed hi fast one past the Philadelphia Athletics to strike out 17 batters and allow only two bit. as the Cleveland Indian won both games of a double header. That was one more strikeout than ftube Waddell achieved 28 years ago when be act the American league record which (tood until today. It also put feller's name betide that of Dizzy Dean a co-holder of th major league record.

The homicide squad ' of New Tork Yankees, with the American league pennant already won, shattered two more major league records today in dynamiting the Bt. Loul Browns to a double-header defeat, 10 to 7 and 13 to 1. They cracked the big-time mark for home runs by one club ln one season, getting eight circuit clouts today to boost their total to 175, and blasted the record for most extra bases on long hits by one outfit ln a season, their eight homers and three double bringing their total to 987. Previously this season they had broken the records for most runs batted tn one game, most home runs by one club in two consecutive games and their own mark for home attendance in a campaign, and bad equalled the major league mark of three home runs by one club ln one Inning. Their total of 887 extra base on long hit for the season, eclipsed the old mark of 974, set by the first Yankees' "murderers' row" back In 1930. Their 175 homers bettered by two the previous mark eet by the j Philadelphia Athletics In 1933.

Baseball players on four of the teams In the Texas league put their uniform away tonight for the winter, while player on the four - clubs which closed the regular season ln the first division got ready for the Shaugh-nessy playoff which will decide the cha. iplonshlp. Dallas, Houston, Tulsa and Oklahoma City finished the regular sea son in that order today and became eligible for the playoff. A tie for third place was evaded today when Tulsa defeated Dallas, 8 to 7, In an 11-lnning game and Oklahoma City lost to Fort Worth, 1 to 0. Had both Tulsa and Oklahoma City won today, or both lost, they would have ended the schedule ln a tie and another game tomorrow would have b"n needed to untie the knot. Rain washed out the other games scheduled today. San Antonio had been scheduled to play at Galveston, while Beaumont had been booked for a doubleheader at Houston. Since these games would not have affected the standings, they will Just be for gotten. With the leaders finishing as they did, Dallas will meet Oklahoma City ln one of the Initial playoff series, while Houston will face Tulsa ln the other. The winners of three games out of five will engage each other in a four-games-out-of-seven series with the 1936 title at stake. The champion also will get the right to meet the winner of the Southern association title ln the annual Dixie series, which was won last year by Oklahoma City, Texas league penna-it winner. The playoffs will begin Tuesday. Dallas will open at Oklahoma City, while Houston wll lopen at Tulsa. Although Dallas finished the sched uled season nine games in front of Houston, the second-place club, its chances at the title diminished when it drew Oklahoma City for the first playoff. The Indians have proved consistent trouble maker for Dallas, and have won 13 out of the 22 games which the two clubs have played. Tulsa, on the other hand, might have been expected to provide easier competition for Dallas, had the Oilers finished fourth, as Dallas has won 14 out of the 23 game played with Tulsa. Veteran Court Star Wins After Dropping Firt Tho Sets Alternating beueen a smashing and lobing type attack, William Bar ret, annexed 6hreveport' men' (in gles championship Sunday afternoon, defeating Bub Murphy, young Uni versity of Texas student, 3-6, 1-6. 6-3 and 10-8, at Princess park. Mildred Crowe retained her women's singles title by winning two love seta from Constance Cunningham. Illness of Will! Butler forced of ficials of the tournament to post pone play in the Junior single until Monday. Butler was scheduled to plsy Perry Angle. Barret, holder of the city title ln 1934, dropped two consecutive sets to Murphy as their match opened. He staged a wonderful comeback to break through hi young opponent'i defense for a victory. Barret found that hi hard drives could not get past Murphy, and as the third set opened he started a lobing game that paved the way for hi win. Double service fault cost Murphy 13 points, a majority of which were mad ln the last three sets, while Barret gave up but five point by the double fault route. On net point Barret again had the better of Murphy, sending but 51 shots into the net, while Murphy fin ished with a total of 75. Placement points found Murphy leading with 28 as compared to Barret's 23. After dropping the first two sets, Barret chalked up five consecutive games In the third, before dropping one to Murphy. The fourth set started off with Barret again running up a lead of three games. Murphy took games four, five, and seven before finally loosing the set. The final set was a duece affair all the way, with Barret forging to the front by taking his service, and then broke through to carry Mur phy's. Eighteen games were requir ed to settle the final set, many lengthy volley's resulting before the set ended. Crow had her women's singles match with Cunningham well under control all the way, placing her shots well to draw Cunningham out of position.

One fall, time limit of thirty minutes. An echo of a knuckle dusting episode that threw approximately 3.000 persons into an uproar at the close of a recent mat program will be heard In the auditorium tonight when Ellis Bashara, Oklahoma's Bad Boy and Big Karl Davis, Ohio' leading wrestling roughlan, clash in a two out of three fall catch-as -catch-can grappling bout. Out-punched by Davis, a former pugilist, when the pair clashed in the ring after a mat bout between Davis and Bashara about three week's ago, the Oklahoma Syrian hopes to obtain revenge by forcing the Ohloan to submit to defeat In a wrestling encounter. Bashara, a chunky heavyweight, who is a past master at wrestling, despite his rough tactics, ha the edge on bit opponent in knowing all the Inside tricks of hi profession, but Davis has reach, height and weight in his favor. Davia is also game and aggressive, but very unpopular because of hi refusal to stay within the mat rules. Southern Teams to Open Playoff Tuesday Night Four Cluhs Will Battle for Right to Meet Texas Champion The match In many respects Is a strange one from the spectator' viewpoint. Neither Bashara or Davis bave more than a handful of supporters ln the big local wrestling colony, but both are great box office attractions.
