Thn PadrpH wb hnth ennr! and j mill bad, and the same can be said for umpire ism tiurnsiae, wno naa the home ond visiting fans riding him all the afternoon. Trouble began to brew in the last of the second inning when, after Volk- man and Valla had been put out, SnriHPri. thn lata Ronttlo Indian recruit, sent one over the homejvalu if' 1 run. dead line for a fair drive by Sunse'rl, jt .. . . . . . . 4 good margin but was allowed on-Ralston, 3b 4 ly a double. There was a storm of protest on the part of the home team, but there was no change in the decision with the result that Sunseri was left stranded on the middle station when Ralston hit to Flyn at third and went out via the assist route to "Freckles" Owen at first. Other decisions were questioned on several occasions and even Gene Valla had to make a muto protest on a couple of occasions on balls called. Sunseri. Ditching his first tame for the Padres, was a hit.! ei,u nnntyn ond haaidna triv ,.., . . ing six batters free transporta tion, hit two. To make matters worse, the Anfinson to Cook combination got mixed up on a cou- pJe of occasions, especially in the fifth frame when San Jose put four runs around the charmed cir-1 8, Santa Cruz 9. Time of name io ond fllniund (Vila n In tl,oKi hour and forty-five minutes seventh with two more. The prune pickers took a 1 to 0 lead in the fourth inning when Oliver scored as Owen drove out a healthy hit to right. . ' ' It looked like the Padres were destined to suffer a shutout up to the seventh, but in this session Gena Valla hit safe to cen ter and scored shortly afterward when Camozzi, at short, in taking care of Raltson's hit to short made a low throw to first that Owen let pass through his wick ets. The Padres again came to life In the eighth as Cook hit safe to center and went to third on Mc- Earcbin's double to right center. Both scored when Anfinson hit Bafo. More trouble seemed to be in store when Valla doubled over the right field fence and took second, where he stayed as Ralston hit a hot grounder to third and was out at first. So far as hitting was concerned, it was a free bombardment affair on both sides and the Padres had a slight edge by scoring eleven hits to ten chalked up in favor of the visitors. Owen led the attack for the visitors with three safe blows, while McEarch-ln and Valla were high men for the Padres with two safeties each. So far as fi'eld!og was concerned, San Jose had a big edge and ruled off several double plays that proved disastrous to the Padres at critical times, when rallies seemed eminent. Moore in right for the home team, caught one that bounced off the boards, but it was allowed to go as an out in face of much protest on the part of the visiting players. Graham Announces Jack Graham, sport writer for the San Jose Mercury Herald, occupied a press box seat and helped out Eddie Dougherty in the announcing line, giving the name of each player of the opposing teams as they stepped to the plate, Jack did his full share to boost the excursion and did not .forget to give the game plenty of publicity in the sport columns of the Mercury Herald. A full column story of the battle is set off with a full streamer head on the main sport page. Jack enloy-ed the game rod says he is willing to bring San J"ise here for a return game whenever tho Padres have an open date. The score: T $ 1 NEXT MEETING AT GLEN ARBOR The San Lorenzo home depart ment meeting will bo held Friday afternoon at Mrs. liartlett's home at Glen Arbor. Among other things on the program will be the construction and use of fireless cookers, and a continuation of the discussion of home management. A social hour and refreshments will follow the business meeting. Plans of Oxford, England, to enact a law forbidding people to litter the street with old bus tickets have been stopped by the British Home Officer'3 refusal of a sanction on the ground that it is not advisable to make trivial acts into criminal offenses. Rivalry between Cape Townand Johannesburg, South Africa, was whetted recently when Cape Town announced that in 1927 there was erected $15,000,000 worth of new buildings, and Johannesburg could boast of only $13,500,000.

Lumber Cutters Sho wReal Speed And Win Easily True to promise, the Twilight leaguers swung into action fol lowing the Partre-San Jose game yesterday, the opsposing teams being the Butchers and the Santa Cruz Lumber company. The game was a five-inning affair and the saw and cleaver outfit of the Walti-Schilling Co. came out on the short end of an 8 to 2 score. In turning the trick, the players from the tall timber came close to running away from their opponents. This was largely due to some effec tive twirling pn the part ot "Vic Trotts, who still can beno them over with bewildering speed. Brother George was on the receiving end and held down the Job until the arrival of El mer Kalar, who finished the joL and allowed Trotts to take care of an infield position. New faces appearing in the lumber company lineup were Bill Fetherstone and Johnny Adams, highly polished recruits be longing to the Felton woodpeck ers. The meat cutters found il hard to get started and had no easy time in scoring the two runs they annexed. Farmer Al varez was among me oiu-umt players back in harness for the butchers and furnished the fans plenty of comedy, as well at: playing good ball. Padres In Tie With Margetts Granting that the Padres have not been showing the form dis- ulayed in the early part of the season, there is still plenty of op portunity for them to start a winning stride and make it interesting for both the General Petroleums and Gilroy, who arc now heading the procession for first place honors. The Margetts, playing their final game in Santa Cruz for the first lap of the race, are now in a tie with the San Francisco crew and foi this reason Sunday's game should be productive of plenty of ex- -Uement, bo matter which team takS honors for tho afternoon. In the game with San Jose yesterday tut liome tam really out-hit San Jose but there was a lack in team work. This can easily be remedied by sitting the players around to position they are more accustomed to. The J'aelres have a good ball team and there is going to be a change of luck soon that will make the fans forget the past. All teams have their off days, even in the best leagues.

Second game: Uumovich, Uaglia and Head, Lombard!; Pillette and Baldwin. The Seals got an even break on the day with Portland, winning the second contest, 8-2, chiefly because Smead Joliey whacked out a pair of homers and a single, ana because JJuten Heulher was unhittable in the pinches. The morning fray was all Carroll Yerkes, the former iladelphia southpaw turning the Seals back, 5-1, although Hol-lis Thurston cracked him for four singles. Batteries: Mitchell and Sprinz; Yarkes and Ainsmith. Second game: Keuther and Spring; French, Ponder and Ain- jmith, Saunders.

This is why Benny Chavez has been chosen to figure in the uigiit-rounu main , event, wmi Henry fcaiigano, one 01 tne cleverest featherweight boxers on the coast. Tne return of Frankie Sands seems to please the fans and his oout with Biily LeFiore is bound oO create widespread interest.

Hennessey Given Davis Cup Chance CHICAGO, IU., May 31. (JP) Johnny Hennessey of Indianapolis 1 may carry most of the burden of the United States' efforts ito win the American zone Davis cup tennis finals against Japan on the Chicago Town and Tennis club courts this week-end. "Big Bill" Tilden, captain of the United States' team, has selected Hennessey to play in the singles with him and has indicated he would pair him with George Lott of Chicago in the doubles. The winner of the finals this week-end will go to Europe early in June to meet the winner of the European zone for the right to challenge France for the Lavis cup, wnich is symbolic of international supremacy in tennis. The matches will be played tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday. Both teams are in Chicago and working hard. Despite easy victories over Mexico and China, Captain Tilden is far from over confident on the impending matches with the Japanese team, which won over Canada last week. "I believe we are going to win," Tilden said, "but it is going to be a hard fight. We are training hard and are ready any time." Loughran Fight Tomorrow Night NEW YORK, May 31. (JP) New York weather has no favorites among boxing promoters. Tex Rickard was forced into numerous postponements in his first attempt of the season to stage a championship fight outdoors by rain, and now his metropolitan rival, Humbert J. Fugazy, has suffered the same fate. As a result of a downpour the light heavyweight championship bout between Tommy Loughran and Pete Latzo, originally scheduled last night, will take place tomorrow, weather permitting. The postponement adds to the tangle of Lougliran's rapid-fire series of title defenses. Within two weeks of the Latzo fray Tommy is due to meet Leo Lomski, on June 13, under the auspices of Fugazy, and Jimmy Slattery the following night for Rickard. Both promoters are standing firmly by their guns in respect to dates, and so far the boxing commission has failed to clarify the situation. A decision is promised for tomorrow, however, with a possible compromise between the rival promoters which will extend Lougliran's fistic marathon by a few weeks.

Moran of 'San Francisco, taking the first flight honors; R. D. Baikie of Santa Cruz winning the second flight, and Mrs. C. H. Griffen, Jr., winner in the ladies' flight. F. A. Moran had a difficult time getting rid of Bob Marsky in the morning, taking him to the 19th green for a win. At one time on the lower, Frank was four up. When the round had been finished Moran found himself just where he started. The extra hole decided the match, Moran getting a beautiful birdie three to settle it. In the afternoon game, Frank Moran was matched against "Sport" Brisac, who secured the right to enter the semi-finals after T. J. Simmons withdrew giving "Sport" a win by default. "Sport" started one up and it was halved on the ninth when Moran sank a long putt foi a three and a win. Ten, eleven and twelve went to Moran making him four up with six to go. "Sport" came back well on the 13th and won easily, but was too strong on his tee' shot on the fourteenth, his ball rolling over the green. Moran was nicely on and made his three, a par, while "Sport" failed and was dormie: four up and four to go. The match was settled five up and four to go. Both players played fine golf in spots, though Mr. Brisac was not nearly as consistent as he generally it. In the second flight George S. McMurty won over F. C. McCarthy on the 18th; while R. D. Baikie beat Harry O'Brien 1 and 6. Harry was not playing his game and "Drum" was going well as he was in the afternoon when he beat George McMurty of Los Gatos, winning 3 and 1. In the afternoon, "Drum" had an 83 for hits medal, which he says is about as good as he has ever done. In-tho ladies' flight, Mrs. C. H. Griffen, Jr., had the better of Mrs. A. R. Rittenhouse, winning 3 and 2; while Mrs . James A. Harris won over Mrs. D. C. Moore, 6 and 5. In the play off Mrs. Griffen defeated Mrs. Harris but it required tho 19th to settle the match. The low gross for tho tournament went to Wm. J. Barry who had a 74 for the round. To Car-lyle Blodgett went the low net, a 64, four under par.

New River Dam to Be Strong One With plans outlined, actual construction on the dam at the mouth of the river will commence Saturday, close to the old spill way that was in use during the first-water carnivals here during the early nineties. The dam will be much more substantial than those of years past as U'on rails and pilos will be set by the piledriver that has been used to advantage in the construction of the board walk. The dams of old carnival days were made by sinking sacks in the river filled with sand. Tho new dam is to be left standing in position all during the summer, which will make the San Lorenzo popular for boating and canoeing, as well as for motor boat-ng the local course, and he is certain to be back for more now that he has discovered he can win them.
