AHO THE "220 OF C ALIFORM/A AT LOS AAJSBLES To Play Here Kentucky Colonels Meet Italian A. C. The Kentucky Colonels, one of the most unique baseball attractions on the road, will be the opponent of the Italian A. C. of this city In a game at the State Street field tomorrow evening and one of the best crowds 'I the year Is expected to turn out. The Colonels present an odd appearance on itie diamond. The members sport goatees and smoke corncob pipes while their uniforms con- slat chiefly of overalls and large straw hats. Despite the makeup, the Colonels are recognized as a formidable aggregation composed of minor leaguers and college stars. Everett Roe, who Is expected to hurl against the .Italian nine received a trial with tho New York Yankees at one time. Hargls, the second sacker, was formerly In the Texas league and the Southern association. Campbell at third, played In the old Eastern league. Roy Gray, the shortstop, 1* the clown of the team and his antics usually cause much merriment among the fans. Dick Bourn, tho catcher, was the Centre college ace a few years ago. The Italian A. C. realizes that it faces a lot of opposition In the coming game and it will present tho strongest lineup possible. Katz may be called upon to do the mound work. Everett Roe, formerly wiui .

Ted Turner Is Entered In Massachusetts^ Open Ted Turner, golf pro at the North Adams Country club, left today for Belmont Springs where he will compete In the Massachusetts Open, one of the biggest tournaments of the year In the state. The event opens tomorrow and continues for three days. Besides attracting the cream of Massachusetts golfers. Including both professionals and amateurs, the »500 purse offered for the winner attracts many top-notchers from other sections. Turner Is hitting the ball In fine style this year, but he has not had as much time for practice as customary However, members of the local club who have watched him compete In previous tourneys this season, express the belief that he has an excellent chance of being among the leaders. Turner Is recognized as the lead- Ing pro In Western Massachusetts and he has taken part In enough of important tournament play to give him plenty of confidence. The feeling prevails that the local itar Is about due to knock off a big event on the links. SHARKEY APPEALS READY FOR BATTLE Champion Said to be Pit as Fiddle for Bout With Camera Thursday Evening.

June 21—(A.P.)—Prlmo Camera may expect to catch Jack Sharkey out of condition when they step into the ring of Madison Square Garden's Long Island City Bowl Thursdax night but if he does, he'll run Into an unpleasant surprise. Jack, at 30, won't be the Sharkey of a few yeais ago perhaps but he'll be In first-class shape Just the same, trained to the minute and ready for the long 15-round route. An examination by Dr. Vincent Nardlello. of the medical staff of the New York state athletic commission, effectively disposed of the question of the champion's condition.

Besieged By Young Admirers 23 31 SENATORS STRONG ON HURLIMOUND Fine Pitching Has Helped Washington Club in Its Pennant Race This Year (By Orlo Robertson — Associated Press Sports Writer) While the Washington Senator have been hitting the ball to all cor ners of western ball parks in thel march to the top of the American league, Manager Joe Cronln's pitch crs also have been playing an 1m portant role In establishing a sea son's major league record for consecutive victories. With a 4 to 3 triumph over the Cleveland Indians yesterday, thi Senators not only Increased their lead to two full games over the Idle Yankees, but won their eighth successive game and their 15th in 16 starts. Just how effective Washington pitchers have been Is shown In their record of allowing opposing team; only 65 hits and an average of 2.5 runs a game In the club's last elgh triumphs. In yesterday's conquest, the thlrc over the Indians, Aivln Crowder and Jack Russell held the Tribe In check n all except the second Inning. Org Hildcbrand, ace of the Cleveland mound staff, and Willis Kudlln throt- Icd the Senators' attack except In he second Inning, when Joe Kuhe ilasted out a home run with Fred Sennit* on base and In the eighth when Goose Gosltn's triple and sln- ;les by Cronin and Bluege 1 gave the eague leaders two more runs. The Athletics got away to an early cad against the White Sox and then with Big Jim Peterson pitching ef- ectlve relief ball pounded out an 8 to 2 victory. Peterson replaced Tony Preltas In he second Inning with the bases filled. He allowed one run to score nd then shut out the Sox the r«- lalndcr of the way with five scatter- d hits. Meanwhile his teammates ilasted Whitlow Wyatt from the lound and continued their heavy llting off Joe Hevlng. The victory •as the A's fifth In six games and he seventh defeat In their last eight ames for the Pale Hose. With Dusty Rhodes keeping the rowns' nine hits well scattered and loundlng out four hits, including a air of doubles, the Boston Red Sox efeated St. Louis, 13 to 5. The Yankees and Tigers failed to et into action when rain Intervened hlle all of the games In the Na- onal league were washed out. :ast year, too nervous. Nervous ex- laustion Is more tiring thin any amount of physical effort. I would say Sharkey Is every bit as ready as Camera." Sharkey, as a matter of fact, never has looked better than he did yesterday In a sizzling two-round workout with Hans Blrkle, rugged German warrior, at his training camp in Orangeburg, N. Y.The champion was punching viciously to the body with his rlghl hand, snaking punches home with lightning speed, and twice shook up Blrkle with left hooks that traveled only Inches. Camera, meanwhile, wound up his Intensive preparations at Pompton Lakes. N. J., by boxing three rounds with Harold Mays and, two against Arlhur Huttlck. Both found the huge Italian easy to hit but hard to hurt. Competent boxing critics expressed surprise over Prime's improvement, especially In boxing skill. Camera plans no more boxing and will take only enough exercise until the night of the fight, to keep himself at top condition. Sharkey expected to wind up boxing today. The betting odds continued to favor Sharkey at 6 to 5.

Haverford, Pa., June 27-—(A.F.)—- With all favorites advancing without much difficulty, the 97-player field which opened the national Intercollegiate tennis championship tournament yesterday was cut to 52 In first and second round competition at Merlon Cricket club. The first bracket was completed and 13 second-round matches were played before a rain, which had bothered the players much of the day, became too heavy and forced an abrupt halt to the competition. All of the eight seeded stars except the ranking entrant, Jack Tkiball of the University of California at Los Angeles, saw action during the open- ng day, four of them reaching the third round. These four, Dick Murphy of Hamilton, ranked third; Martin Buxy of Texas, seeded fourth; Al Horton, Williams, fifth, and Stanford's Joe Coughlln, seventh, each played one match. Murphy, with a flrst-round bye, made short work of Robert Hast- ngs of Yale, winning B —1,6—3, while Buxby conquered Francis Moore of Abilene In love sets and won by da- fault over Bill Thompson of W. and J.
