r MGE BLY1I1EV1LLK (ARK,); COURLEE NEWS FRIDAY, AUGUST 20, 19<M Cardinals Win Over Cubs, 2 to 1 Passeou Pitches 6-Hitrer But It's Not Good Enough By Unlkd Treis All but two of tlie 1C ""jo league teams took yesterday oil. Those two—the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals hooked up at St. Louis, and tills morning the Cubs are sorry-they bothered to play. Trie Cardinals won 2 to 1 on a three-hitter that'gave rookie Ted Wilks his S3lh victory of tlie season against just one, solitary defeat.' . • .. The veteran Claude Passeau turned hi a noble job for the Cubs. He held the pennant-bound Reclbirds to six hits—but there's no holding those cardinals. Tlie Detroit Tigers will open a vital series with the St. Louis Browns at Detroit today. This four- game set will give the fourth-place Tigers their last chance to do something about that American League pennant that the Browns seem to be making off with. The only 20-game winners In the major leagues-Hal Newhouscr and Dizzy Trout of the Tigers—lead llielr bengals against tlie only team In (he: league that lias been able to beat the Tigers regularly. The Tigers have won from the Browns just three times this seasoi while losing 11 to the league-leader.'; And tne two proud SO-game winners—Trout and Ncwhoiiscr — well, thej've lost five of those i gnmcs, though they accounted foi all- three of the victories. Trout will start in tonight's con test, and the Tigers wilt have li take at least three out of the fou games to stay in the race.

As rabid as Brooklyn ins are over their "beautiful Bums", icy don't have a tiling on Osccola ttwnry. ; For Instance, take the horse show .aged by the South Mississippi ounty Ijlve Stock Association at Jsccola Wednesday night. It'was my cry good pleasure U> be on hand or llml spectacular event and afn rank to admit I have never seen show of any sort click oil with norc precision. Jt was as smooth as Ilk. Everyone and everything was ust right, couldn't be better. There vas not a hllcli from the opcnlni drains of the National Anthem am he Invocation by the Rev, T.

The .show was complete, thorough, and very good. The customers were back home at an early hour. UNSUNG HKUOINE Of course, the horse show committee, led by L. C. B. Young, Mayor Ben P. Butler, Charles R. Coleman, and W. J. Driver Jr., and the woman's committee, composed of the wives of these four plus Mrs. J. H. Grain, Mrs. C. J. Lowrance, Jr., Mrs. Hale Jackson, and Mrs. Rufiis _ _ „ Branch, deserve a big hand. But Business Manager Ray Winder of those in on the know tell me that ig, He did that with the finesse f a master in Ills definite way cff Roland, former local merchant low a native of Paragould, said o 1m, "Sam A Leath Is a credit to the how horse business.

To which we add an extra nimble "amen," based solely on thl one performance.

Seated i ;hc some box with me, Norfleet w;i a consistent winner picker all even Ing. He named the three winner in order, in the walking stakes. An that was no small feat, if you as me. I didn't come close. JUDGES SHOW JUDGMENT While there'is a great deal I don know about the line points of tlioi oughbrcd horses, I liked the way tl various judges, Fred Walker, Frank lln, Tciyi.. who handled the wnlkli classes; and Herbert McLaln, Cor- slcana, Texas, the gaited and roadster class ofilcial, worked. They appeared to know their business, lost little time checking off their selections. Their nominations didn't always pan out with my choices, so what? The difference was they know horses, and I don't. So there! I liked the business-iikc manner of Melvin Waggoner, the .Osccolan, who handled the show as ring master. When the call was issued for the line-up there was a quick response and no lost motion. The announcer, J. C. Slayton, Dyersburg, Tenn., kepi the crowd informed as to what was going on. The most impressive part of his . announcing - was he didn't talk too much, as many have done He said what was necessary and let us look at the show. TELLS OF SON Before the program I ran across ostmasUn 1 George Doylo, who nev- inlsscs a sporting event of any nt, size and description. During ur chat he told me u couple of In- crestlnjj things, about his son, Junr, who is In Uncle Sam's fighting orccs in the Pacific. A friend of his who has returned o the Stoles has told the Doylcs Junior Is stationed on one of ic Marshalls and Is doing "all ight", which was welcome news In- eed. Junior wrote a few days ago that ic was standing In front of his bai - acks when a negro soldier passed >y In rapid stride. As he passed the oloreci boy slowed down, turned walked back to where George was .landing, and looking closer into Ills ace blurted: "Ain't youall from Osceola?" "Xes, I am", Junior proudly ic- ilied. "So am I," said the boy with a ;rin that carried from ear to ca and bared his shining white row of teeth. "I'se one of Hale Jackson' niggers." Junior also told his parents .of bombing account and his narro escape. He was blown Into the wa ter but was able to swim to shore none the worse from the ordeal, sav shock and "slight'^dampness.

We had proof enough of that during our 13 years of prohibition. What you really vote for is whether liquor is going to be sold Itgally or illttolly.,, whether the community is going to get needed taxes for schools, hospitals, and the like, or whether this money is going to go to gangsters and bootleggers.
