FULLKRTON, Jr. AuoolMed PT*M Sports Writer >"pHE National League pennant A race may be- decided between now and September 4, although the season still has more than a month to run. The stage was set for a "crucial" tour yesterday when the Pittsburgh Pirates, replaying Sunday's tie, handed the St. Louis 'gas house gang an unmerciful 17-to-5 drubbing nnd pent thorn into a tie with tho idle Now York Giants for first place. Today tho Giants, showing no sign of the late wenson "crackups" that have marked their other campaigns, open an important trip through the western half of tho circuit. If Bill Terry's team should run Into a bis; winning streak It could almost wrap up tho flag and bring It home. Paul Dean, making his first start since July 4, showed no signs of the soro arm which has been bothering him, but he couldn't keep the Cards on top. Given a comfortable lead by a four-run blast that drove Ralph Birkofer out in tho third, ho weakened In tho fourth inning and re- .tired beforo an attack that tied tho count. Kd Heusser was the victim of a six : run blast in the next inning and tho Bucco bats played the samo tuno against George Earnshaw and Flint Bhom to pile up a total of 26 blows. Bill Brnbakor set the pace with five straight hits. Cubs Have Fight The Cubs, only 3& games off tho pace nnd holding 1 a fine spot to go places If they can hit tho same clip In their homo park as they did at tho same stage last year, had a stiff struggle with Cincinnati's Reds. They finally won out In the tenth inning, 2 to 1, when errors by Les Scarsella and Alex Kampoxirls put Frank Demaree on third nnd Angle Galan singled him home. Galan nearly lost the game by misjudging Lew Riggs* hit In the seventh but he atoned by knocking In both Cub runs. Sox Maintain Bid i KluriU. Ib 4 Kllmoro. c 4 Kti'.hfco'r.cif Uuprry.

Press Leased Wire) VANDALIA, Ohio, Aug. 25.—Two of the most coveted prizes in the trapshoot realm—tho North American amateur clay target championships for men and women—were on the block today as tho thirty-seventh annual grand American program entered Its second day. Joo Helfltand, the Hillsboro, Ohio, farmer boy, and ranking star of tho sport today, is tho men's defending champion, while Mrs. Lela Hall, petite wife of an East Lynn, Mo., roHlaurant operator, wears the feminine laurels. Not only Is Mrs. Hall tho leader of the "weaker sex," but she Is tho champion of tho world's class B shooters. She tied four men at 197 out of 200 a year ago and then beat them in a shoot-off to lake the laurels, tho highest a woman has won over tho traps.- Todny'H North American events were 200-target races at 16 yards, and the cast-west 10-man team title will be decided at the same time. Halo C. Jones, 29-year-old automobile salesman from East Alton, 111., won his first grand American title yesterday after years of effort by beating all other state champions in a l!00-target race. Ho broke 196 of 200 to tie R. M. Jenkins or Orleans, Ind., for the crown, and then broke 25 In a row in tho shootoff to win, Jenkins missing his twenty-second target. In tho only other game on the big league program, tho Chicago White Sox continued' their bid for third place In the American League by hammering out an 8 to 4 decision over Detroit's Timers, Neither Tommy Bridges nor Vic Sorrell could check the Chicago batters, as Luke Sewell and Luke Appllng inserted a pair of homers in a 14-hlt attack. Between them they handed the Sox nine free trips to first. ON THE MAT EFOUE tho largest slceet crowd assembling at the range this season, Dr. B. Buzan won the club's "argumentative shoot," dusting 14 birds and forcing G-eorge Russell with 13 and Cliff KucnUel with 12 to eat dust. Tho large turnout of shooters taxed the club confines almost to the point of congestion and startled the regulars. The cause la not far to seek for dove season opens in a few days and the boys were out with the old shot tubes in numbers sighting in before the season opener. Club Rivalries Intra-club rivalries were further intensified when Simpson's "Snooty Setters" challenged, S wager's "Proud Pointers" to a team match. Two six-men teams wore unveiled before the public eye and moved Into action through a round note for comments from tho gallery. Gallery wits contested every doubtful point or chipped bird and the for- enslcs were carried on at long range across the shooting grounds. Pointers Are Talkers Swager'g "Proud Pointers" outtalked Simpson's "Snooty Setters," but the Setters outshot the hefty talkers. Simpson was high man of his squad with a 22 and 'Carnakis blazed away with a fine 22 to lead MB group. The "Snooty Setters" were composed of the following ballisticlans: Simpson, Lane, Estribou, Bauer (Left-Handed Lou, the Lion Hearted Lad of Labrador), Pnnmin nnd McMains. Swager's "Proud Pointers" were composed of the following gun pointers: Kllllan ("I Busted 24 Killian"), Huston, Carnakis, Clements, Stahl and the janitor of this column who was the sweep-up man. All kidding aside, Harry Killian's 24 was nice going during the morning round. If he gets cocky, however, ask him what he did later in the day. Ho made the high score of the meet. Joyce Hay, with a 12, was high man for visitors at the club. Award Over Garcia Does Not Prove Popular With the Fans EXPEDITION PROVES THAT BASS EXIST IN RIVER The Morel expedition, composed of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Morel, proved conclusively that large-mouth bass exist in Kern river. The Morels, and that means Mrs. Morel, too, fished in Kern river below the mouth of the canyon and caught 12 bass weighing from 1 to 2M: pounds. TCRANK LIMA won an unpopular •*• decision here last night when h« took two out of three votes in defeating Tony Garcia. Tony, subbing for Morrie Siew, wasted no time In getting under way in the first round and continued a strong attack throughout the four frames. Frank hold his own, but the good- sized crowd claimed he won the close battle because he Is a native son of this locality. Doubtless, his being a home town boy helped him gain a few points. Both boys shot from the hip like pulp magazine story gunmen in ttte second. It was during this spasm of the fracas that Tony nnd Lima took turns on the ropes. Lima hid the upper hand In this round and continued to be master of ceremonies in the third. Swing With a Will The boys started to act in the fourth round, swinging rights and lefts at each other with a free will. When.the decision was given, Frank left tho ring with the boos of the fens ringing in hia ears. Hut Thompson won a unanimous decision in the semi-wind up over Bobby Molina. The two went at top speed during the first and second rounds. Tho third was a fairly quiet round and it was evident both of these game fighters were Btorlng up fuel for the last lap. Hut and Bobby threw rights and lefts in the final frame but Hut managed to hit the target too often and won the bout on a largo margin of points. Adams Tags Lupe Frank Adams tagged Lupe Munoz with a decision, winning by n nose in the fourth round rally. Wilson % lackey put his all Into a couple of last rounds nnd nosed out Eddy Bondshu by a nod. Eddy attempted to como back Just before the closing gong but failed because of lack of time. 1C. O. Johnnie declsloned Ollie Lewis in a fast fight. K. O. had too much power In his punchers which come often and were straight from the shoulder. Henry Johnson shaded Wilson Brooks and in tho opener, Frankie Boy knocked out Kid Salus In the second round. RACE PILOT RETURNS LOS ANGELES, Aug. 25. (A. P.
