Winquist, Dick Marks, Ray Warren, Bud Sackett, Albert Walkowski, TJahlon Horn, George Winquist, Harry Mitchell, and Gordon Winquist. Carlson, Warren, and R.

Norrie will have either Dean Hoist or Clarence Kivi doing the pitching with "Weeps" Maki catching. MONARCHS SEEK REVENGE The Royals and Monarchs will square off at 2 tomorrow afternoon at the Monarch park in what should be one of the top Interstate games of the day. Fans are looking forward to a repetition of the thrilling battle staged by the two clubs at Gorrilla park during the first half of play. The Royals won that game and will be out to score their second win of the season over their city rivals. On the other hand, the Monarchs are determined to get revenge for that defeat. At the present time the Royals are pacing the western division of the league with a 9-2 record, while the Monarchs are tied with Gile for fourth place with a 6-4 mark. OTHER GAMES In other western division games tomorrow, Marenisco will be at Gile, Ramsay at Bessemer, and Wakefield at Hurley. Over in the eastern division of the Interstate loop five games are scheduled: Alston at Mass, Greenland at Bergland, Rockland at Ontonagon, Ewen at Trout Creek, and Watton at Bruce Crossing. Three games are slated for play in the Iron County Baseball league. Mercer will be host to Saxon in the circuit's outstanding v.amc of the day, while Gurney will be at Iron Belt, and Upson A four-man softball team tha has posted a record of 63 win and 14 losses--the present King and his Court team--will be th feature attraction Sunday nigh AugustJS at Northland field. The softball specialists are be ing sponsored by the Northland Sports club. Adding to this attraction, re ports the Northland club, is the fact that six additional lights are being installed on the prsent stan dards at the field. The additions will give the lighting system a to tal of 24 lights. According to recent informa tion, Eddie Reigner, pitcher foi the King and his Court, last week pitched two games blindfolded. In one of those he had 19 strike-outs, gave up a hit and three walks. In the other he fan ned 18, allowed a hit and walked none. The specialists are reported on their way to the Canadian inter national exposition at Toronto where they will meet last year's world champions, the Tip Top Tailors, in a three-game series. The King and his Court play regular Amateur Softball association rules, excepting if their fourth man comes to bat with his three mates on base. He continues at bat until a run scores or the side retired. Basically, here is how the four- man team operates: Catcher -- Determines how strong the batsman is, as to distance and location he can hit. He also sets up all steals. First Baseman--Makes all inside plays -and covers for the pitcher on added pitching dis- ;ance. Shortstop-- Makes all outside plays and covers for the pitcher and makes necessary long throws rom the field. Pitcher -- Governs the whole show. He sizes up the hitter--de- ermines if he is trying or is iretty well decided he hasn't a nance. He decides when to let a man score, ,hit, strikeout or bunt. He has signals for everything.

PHOmtM Roberts, Spahn Post 14th Wins By JACK HAND Associated PceM Spesss Writer Robin Robert* looks like the Phillies' first ao-game winner since the good old days of Grover Cleveland Alexander. With old Alex reeling- oft SI wins, the Phils copped their first and only pennant for Pat Moran in 1915. Alex repeated with S3 in 1916 and 30 in 1917 but the Phils didn't. Now comes Roberts, a 23-year- old lad from Michigan State, driving the Phils toward another flag. With Curt Simmons heading off to war, a heavy burden rests on Roberts' shoulder*. So far he has shown no signs of saggutg. Roberts hung up hi* 14th vie- , tory last Bight with a five-hitter ' against the St. Louis Card*. 4-2. He took a 27-inning scoreless string into the game and carried it to ·J2 3-4 before Enos Slaughter hit a two-run homer in the sixth Inning. It was a new season high of shut-out pitching. Granny Hamner tripled with two on in the eighth to score the tie-breaking runs.
