Stokes GccGn and. Wilbur Irving arc In the midst of a battle for starting honors) at one forward position, Maysc Nn.'li and Ed Hasscll fight for the other forward, job. Coach Mitchell was fairly well •pleased with most of hi;; team's play against Allison Jnst Saturday night when the Harvesters were victorious by one point. He is still seeking ways and means of making more points to go along with his apaprently strong defense. The Harvesters went through stout workouts every afternoon this week in preparation for the arrival of the Price Memorial Cardinals Friday night and the trip to Mobeetie Saturday, where the team will compete in the Mobeetie invitation tournament. The Harvesterettes will also go to the Mobeetie tournament. Considerable time during practice sessions has been spent in timing passing from the guards while working the ball into scoring position. Both of the games lost by the Harvesters this season was due to bad passing. Beth of the losses were by one-point margins. Price memorial is said to have one of the s'.i'r.npast clubs the Harvesters have met this season. The two teams will meet after a game between the Gorillas and the Price Memorial second string, set for 7:30 c'clock.

JACOBUS, President, Professional Golfers' Association. NEW YORK, Jan. 10 (/P)—For the game of golf, 1935 will be a year of opportunities, which if recognized, accepted and developed, will make it the greatest year since 1929. This year's tournament schedule is already full and promises to break all records. This leads me to predict a tremendous increase in the number of new players. In addition, many old golfers will be returning to the game—players who found it necessary, due to unsettled business conditions, to drop the game during '30 and '31. The Professional Golfers' association is helping the golf professional recognize a'nd develop the opportunities presenting themselves. It is also creating opportunities for the professional to give the golfing public the benefit of his knowledge and talents and is now planning an extensive program for broadening the scope and value of his work during 1935. An example is the club tournament catalog it is now •compiling, to which P. G. A. members from coast to coast have contributed information on unusual amateur tournaments used at their respective clubs with success. Shining brightly on the 1935 golfing calendar are the international Ryder cup team matches, which will be played at the Ridgewood Country club, Ridgewood, N. J., on September 28 and 29. These matches always furnish some of the game's most thrilling exhibitions, bringing together the cream of the world's golfers, but the 1935 matches should tap any of the previous ones. Parker, Budge, Mako Considered For Davis Team CAMDEN, N. J., Jan. 10. (If)— W. Gibbons, of the Davis Cup committee, says "three youngsters" in amateur tennis are being considered for the Davis Cup team that will represent the Uhited States his year. Gibbons told the League of West Jersey Field Clubs last night that Frank Parker, Gene Mako and Donald Budge are tentatively included in his list. The other tentative nominees, he said, ar« Wilmer Allison, the Texan now ranked No. -1 nationally, John Van Ryn, of Philadelphia and Sydney Wood. Bobby Jones to Play in Dallas DALLAS, Jan. 10. (/P) — Bobby Jones came to town today to play a match with three outstanding amateurs over the tough Brook Hollow course for sweet charity. He will team with Leland Hamman, trans-Mississippi champion, against Devid (Spec) Goldman and Reynolds Smith, runneivup for the national amateur and Texas champion, respectively. Yesterday at San Antonio Jones and Lorraine Young, his amateur partner, bowed to Clarence Mang- hajn and Jimmy Morgan, professionals, 3 and 2. The Junior League is sponsoring Jones' appearance in Texas. CLASS MEMBER IMPROVES Mrs. Anna Brocks, member of the local Gleaners Sunday school, who has been sick two weeks, was able to be up today and to receive callers. H. S. Hogue of Mobeetie visited friends in Pampa yesterday. NEW YORK, Jan. 10 (/P)— Pug- nosed George Lott and Lester "Little Rolio" Stoefen, a couple of weary young athletes, were neatly started on the way to their first million today j but for them both the start qf .this professional tennis road was paved with nothing but dollars and disillusionment. , 1 They came Into Madison Square :Garden before 14,816 people last night—a crowd that for ermine, starched shirts, and tall hats ri- ivalled a Metropalitan opera opening—and they lost all but honor and the 1214 per cent of the $20,000 met .gate receipts Promoter Bill O'Brien paid them for their professional . debut, i , First Bill Tilden, despite his 42 years, ; knocked Lott off in straight ;sets of . a, singles match, 6-4, 7-5, and then ^Tilden and long Ellsworth Vines stripped them of their right to the title'Of the world's greatest doubles-,teain,- amateur or professional, by winning one of the most sensational matches ever played, 3-6, 14-16, 13 T ll,s8-6,. 6-4, So- long did the doubles match •age, two hours • and 51 minutes, ;hat it was too late when it ended ;a stage'.the final scheduled contest, a singles combat between Vines and Stoefen., Vines was a magnificent improvement on the youngster who only a ago made his professional de- jut on the same • cloth surface stretched over cement before 14,637 who paid $30,000 at somewhat higher vices. Against the national doubles ;hampions and Davis cup heroes, Vines was a superman in the grueling battle that wore Lott and Stoefen down completely and to the astonishment of all Wound up with the ancient Tilden the second strongest player on the court. The doubles had everything. Vines smashed Lott in the seat of the pants with a kill, and the two pro rookies stormed at the umpires aatted balls into the crowd, threw bheir bats in the air, and raisec their hands and voices in pleading supplication to the tennis gods, Tilden made shots between his legs and with his back turned, anc everyone had an immense time. Lott and Stoefen each got aboui $2,500 for the evening's work. WHEELER COUNTY RECORDS Oil filings for Wednesday, Jan. 9: MD.—C. H. Phillips to J.

TEXAS LEAGUE EXPECTED TO ABOLISH DIXIE SERIES SOON i Slants by '< The smallest player in the major leagues is Nick Tremark, Brooklyn Dodgers' outfielder. He Is 5 feet 4% inches. Three first basemen in the National league didn't miss a game in 1934, Gus Sulir, Pittsburgh; Jim Collins, St. Louis; and Bill Terry New York. Football statistics of the season just over show that for the first time In years at Notre Dame a right halfback led the team in scoring. He was George Melinkovich who toted the ball over enemy goal lines six times for 30 points. Bob Zuppke, Illinois football coach, who is usually suggesting that the football rules bs left alone, wants to change them so that the defensive team must put seven men on the line of scrimmage. The recent day-after-Christmas Notre Dame-Stanford game was put up to the squad, the athletic officials hesitating to schedule a game so soon after the holidays unless the players wanted it. The vote stood 15-0 in favor. And Notre Dame won 29-19. Hans Lobert, coach and captain of the Phillies, set a record of 13 4-5 seconds for circling in 1910. It still stands today. Charlie Rigler, National league umpire, may not be active in 1935. He was injured in an automobile accident last summer. To rumors that he was thinking of selling his 50 per cent of the Brooklyn Dodgers, President Steve McKeever said, "It is not for sale. It will never be for sale while I live, and I'm feeling very well, thank you!" A promising reserve on last year's Notre Dame team who is expected to shine for the. "Fighting Irish" next season is Al D'Amora, born on New Year's day in Monte Odorisia, Italy. He now hails from Ardmore, Pa. The Brooklyn Dodgers will be the first National league club in camp this year. They will report in Orlando, Feb. 25. Pepper Mai-tin of the St. Louis Cardinals got caught on only one double play during the 1934 season. Carl Chaudoin, superintendent of schools at Mobeetie, was a visitor in Pampa yesterday. GALVESTON, Jan. 10. (/P)—Abolishment of the Dixie series and the rookie rule Is expected here Saturday and Sunday when Texas League magnates convene with President J. Alvin Gardner. The adoption of uniformed light- Ing for all parks, the discussion of an all-star game between northern and southern teams and the acceptance of a. 1935 playing schedule are included on the program. The Dixie series contract between the Texas League and the Southern Association has expired. The series was a financial failure in lf)33 and 1934. The Southern Association plans a straight-through 1935 schedule with no play-off. The Texas League will operate under the extended Shaughnessy plan featuring a four- way play-off. As a consequence the southern circuit will end its season 15 days earlier in 1935 than the Texas loop. The difference in schedules and the lack of interest have cast a gloomp shadow over future Dixie classics. The rookie rule that specifies each team must include three non- elass players on Its playing roster is expected to be discarded. John Martin, Southern Association president, and interested Southern Association owners have been invited to hear G. G. Griffin explain how all parks may boast uniformed lighting. Texas leaguers have complained that it is difficull to play in some parks because of poor lighting facilities. Following in the wake of the American and National league all- star game, the Texas League may schedule an all-star affair. If the proposal is accepted, the game would be played in mid-season President Gardner favors such game. Players for the game would be selected by fans, who would do their balloting through newspapers Adoption of a schedule will come under the head of routine business Bill Buggies, league statistician has prepared several schedules to be voted on. The initial business session will be held at 10 o'clock Saturday morning. President Sheorn Moody and vice-president Roy Koehler of the Galveston Buccaneers have completed plans for an entertainment program. .o- T. C.

BIG SEVEN' TO FORM CONFERENCE IN NEXT SESSION NEW YORK, Jan. 10 (IP)— For diplomatic reasons, the seven affil- ated members of the Eastern Intercollegiate "old guard" so far have loft-pedalled their plans to extend ;o football the agreements which already exist in track, baseball and msketball. Whether the so-called "big seven" actually form a gridiron conference or association within the next year or two, appears likely, it is nevertheless a fact that their current schedule-making reflects strong mu- ual interest, from the standpoint of competition as well as policies. It can be said with authority that while no intention exists now to aring about iron-clad agreements ;hcro is an understanding that ro- ;ating schedules will bring the seven universities — Columbia, Cornell Dartmouth, Harvard, Pennsylvania Princeton, Yale—into consistently :loser relationship in football. Thus Princeton, its breach with Harvard healed last fall, will resume with Pennsylvania on the gridiron this year after a 40-year break. The Tigers will play five games within this "conference' group next season, including Cornell, Dartmouth, and Yale. Here's how the "Big Seven" are scheduled to play among themselves this year: Columbia vs. Cornell and Pennsylvania, Cornell vs. Columbia, Dartmouth Pennsylvania. Dartmouth, vs. Cornell, Harvard Princeton, and Yale. Harvard vs. Dartmouth, Princeton and Yale. Pennsylvania vs. Columbia, Cornell, Princeton, and Yale. Princeton vs. Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvardi Pennsylvania, and Yale. Yalo vs. Dartmouth, Pennsylvania, Princeton, and Harvard. 4*> Airey Signs tip Dean Cousin for St. Louis Browns B$G SPRINGS, Jan. 10. (/P)— Big plans are being laid for the bow of another Dean in the baseball world. Jack Dean, first cousin of the Dizzy and Daffy combination, has been signed by the St. Louis Browns for a spring tryout at West Palm Beach, Fin. Guy Airey, vice-president of the San Antonio club of the Texas League, signed Jack to a contract. Jnck thought it very amusing when the offer was made, for Jack has 1 played the total of no professional games and very few semi-pro games. However, he agreed to try his slants with the Browns, waving aside a previous contract with the Sari Antonio club. x*. C. C. Simmons of White Deer transacted business here yesterday.
