There's one assist baseball 1 statisticians won't record this season. It. came from Commissioner A. B. Chandler. •/ The boost wasa financ.ial one for Manager Billy Southworth^of the Boston Braves. '. , , . : •'.].. The commissioner.' announced at his home here he had directed th«t Southworth receive a full share at the World'Series'"money earned by the fourth-finishing Boston club. Southworth, the commissioner said, was voted only a half share by the Boston players. A full share was worth $331.66 for the; Braves. "Rarely do we fincrah injustice," said Chandler, "but if we do we correct." He explained there had been other such cases previously. Clubs in each league finishing fourth or better share in the series take. The division of the cash is approved by the commissioner. There were reports during th'e series that. Southworth, vjho had a stormy season before leaving the club in August, was voted only a half share by an 11-8 margin. These reports were not confirmed. Southworth apparently w disturbed about the -money split. tver the team decide —if they voted me a half that's all right with me," he said at his home at Sunbury, Ohio. "After all I was not with the team the full season and whatever they decided I am heartily in accord with."

Little Rock Meets El Dorado Tonight Texas Aggie Back Leads SWC Rushers . COLLEGE STATION, Tex.. Oct. 21—(jV;—Amid the shambles of a disastrous Texas A. and M. season there stands a rootball player. 'Bob Smith is his name and he has svadrd through enemy lines as though playing for unbeaten, uuiti'd Notre Dame. Kvery blast is painful but the 192-pound sophomr'e rolls on— fighting for a team ihat tries but can't give him much held. Some ligaments were pulled out of position in his shoulder near the nrc'-. before the opening game of the season with Villanova. He was in that only four plays, carry- ins the ball once for six yards. The next wcefc lie cracked through 31 times tor 214 yards against Texas Tech. He had to keep his left hand clutched against his shoulder, to 'avert further inllry while carrying the ball. lie leads the Southwest Conference in ball-carrying with ; 410 yards net on 86 tries—an average of 4.8 yards per''-ffort. Tints. he has accounted for more than 57 per cent of the Aggie yardage on the ground because the entire team has gained only 712. A....and M. has played six games »mi'-w<Hv only one—a 26-1 decision ove toft'bcaten Texar. Tech. But it's no fault of Smith- If he had somebodv to open a hole once iu a vrhUe, the big fellow probably would drive clear out ot the stadium. At that, he's been str\pod for only 17 • yards In losses. *Two Teams to Battle ? For Big Six Crown/ Zebras Play Wildcats K.v The Associated frrss El Dorado and Little Rock meet- tonight in a game which stacks up as the best high school football attraction of the season in Arkansas. The championship of the Big Six Division, the . state's highest pigskin classification, will be at stake. El Dorado "can take the crown by winning, for It lias beaten all other big six members. Little Rock, the defending champion and favorite on Its home field, can practically but not mathematically sew up the title by winning. The Tigers still w'il! have to play Pine Bluff and North Little Rock. Both the Tigers and the El Dorado Wildcats are undefeated and united in Big Six competition, although each, has lost once to an outsider. Once-beaten Pine Bluff, which would have a chance at first place if El Dorado loses, will take on Nurtl. Little Rock on the' latter's field Friday night. Other big six members will meet non-loop foes, Fort Smith taking on Musxo- gee, okla., and Hot Springs "tackling Hope. Crucial Class A games aVe docketed for Friday night in two districts.

The winners dominated the play In the early stages but Central caught fire In the second half, and except for one break-away by K. D. Moore, kept Sudbury back on its heels. Sudbury received the kick-off and marie one first down. Then on fourth down and the Central defense digging in, Moore skirted left end be- lund good blocking for the tally The try for extra point failed and Surttaliry led by 6-0. In [he .second period, after Central failed to gain and punted, Kenneth Stanley faded and looped a| long pass to Moore who again went over for the T.D. The play was good for GO yards. Central came to life with Ihe ensuing kick-oil and was driving goalward as the naif ended. Central receiver! the second half kick-off and made it a touchdown Hi four well-executed plays. Dickie Foster imule 9 on an end-around, Jimmy Buchanan took a reverse for it* and Foster repeated his play for 12. Buchanan again took it on a reverse for 5 yards and the score and Foster scored the extra point, to bring Ihe score to 12-7. Sudbury's last tally came on the first play following the kick-off, Moore slashing through center and going 40 yards. Again the try for extra poitit failed. In the fourth quarter, Buchanan scored the second Central TD from six yards out after a sustained drive featuring the line smashes of fullback Jodie Hall, who also played a great defensive game.' With the score at 18-13 John Mark Stewart took the kick-off and almost got away, being pulled down on the Central 20, but the defenders recovered a fumble on the next plav and .started a drive which elided on the Sudbury 15 as the final whistle sounded.
