Marberry, who hurled seven-hit ball voluntarily retiring after the start of the ninth frame, waa aided and abetted in his triumph by another veteran, Luther (Red) Harvel. The left fielder's bat was as hot as his fiery thatch, a home run and two singles being his contribution. Harvel's circuit wallop, which found Jim Stroner on first base, put the Steers out in front by a run in the fourth Inning and started the Bo- vine's hitting efforts against Dick Whitworth, aging Indian twirler. Ahead, two games to one, In their series playoff, the Steers planned to use Vic Frasler against the Indians in the fourth game here tomorrow night. Manager Bert Nlehoff was not decided on his starting twirler.

The football season gets down to serious busi ness this week, a bit earlier than usual, after hoisting the curtain with a double handful of games Saturday and Friday night. The greater part of the program, which will bring most of the major teams in every section of the country into action, consists of the customary early-season "warmup" clashes, but there are a half dozen or so that would rate as major contests on any Saturday. High spotting the program are the intersectlonal clashes between Colgate and Duke at Durham, N. C, -Minnesota and Washington at Seattle and Louisiana State and Rice at Baton Rouge, La. The southern colleges, which did most of last week's playing, be-$ Bin. their conference scneauies in earnest , with Mississippi taking on Tulane in the southwestern group and South Carolina meeting Virginia military and Clerason facing Virginia Tech in the aouthern. Four of the teams in the major Intersection! clashes will be opening ther campaigns in the grand man ner while two, Duke and Rice, warmed up Saturday. Duke's Blue Devils overcame stubborn resistance by a new southern conference member to defeat Davidson 13-0 while the Rice Owls whipped Texas A. and I, 33-0.

St. John9 s Eleven Plays First Game on Texas Field Orioles Invade Carthage Thursday; Local Squad Larks Experience St. John's eo"ege doubles will usher tn their football season at Carthafre, Texas, Thursday against the strong Csrtbsge high school. Due to lack of experienced material, and numerous Injuries. St. John's opening line-up will be rather weak, but after two out-of-state games. Coach Tom Moran is confi dent that his new boys will have ex perience enough to start on their State Class "B" gsmes. In the first few games Coach Mor an Intends to do quite bit of shift ing of plsyers In an attempt to get the most value out of the beys with experience. Only five lettermen and one cquadman of 1935 team returned to school this year. The starting backfield will not cause much worry, for four letter-men will fill positions, and L. May a newcomer this yesr Is a threat to re place anyone of the regulars. At the end positions will probably be Jones and Burns, but if Cobb con tinues to improve he will probably get a regular wing berth. There is quite an interesting fight going on for the tackle berths, with Alfred Zeigler. F. May and Dykes Leiibo making It tough for Joe Mi-clotto and Ray Jones. The first three boys are all new comers and are working very herd, while the other are veterans and heavier but are having a hard time getting into shape. At the guard positions will probably be P. DeBroeck and W. Presnall, with Sam Brocato and John Brocato breaking in quite regular??. William Burnell, letterman from last year, has the pivot position practically cinched, and should be a world of power to his teammates both on offence and defense. A new candidate for the team made his appearance the past week. He Is Tommy Murphy, who Is husky and will probably be heard from quite a bit before he leaves St. John's.
