WHEN WE EXPRESSED THE opinion of many fahs, that Oilers Iric.'s president, Mr. Edmondson, had made an error in giving Borger. fans- week-limited rainchecks, After last Friday-s Oiler-Gasser tilt was postponed by the weatherman, we were simply pointing out an impractical business policy we felt would be detrimental to the local club and the entire league. Folio (vitig that single column the matter would flave been finished, particularly when Manager Grover Seitz stated that the rainchecks woulfl be honored at the next Bprger.Pampa game here. But, Mr. Edttiotidsori forced us to continue on the issue when he accused us of Jtaving misstated the facts and informing us in no quiet tones, in the presence of one of our family, incidentally, that we were completely misinformed, etc, For verification of our remarks on the subject, Troy Martin, Sports Editor of -the Borger -Herald, talked With several of the displeased Borger fans, who were handed rain- checks. The foremost of the group interviewed was Mr. Cliff Haggard, who lives at 329 North Main. Mr. Haggard, who is a former member of the Gasser's Board of Directors, would appear well qualified to express his views on the subject. He told Martin, "I talked to Mr. Edmondson personally and he told me that the rainchecks were good for one week only." Martin, who described Haggard as being extremely dissatisfied with the arrangement, also quoted him (Haggard) as having said, that a lot of people had thrown their rainchcoks away and that they had indicated that they wouldn't go back to Oiler Park "regardless of who was playing." Mr. • Haggard stated further that Edmondson had told him t that the rainchecks rule was made ,by the> league and not the local 'club, but Mr. Haggard said he could remember several similar instances in Gasscr Park where Jans' money was refunded. And Mr. Haggard was by no means the only dissatisfied fan. If it s desired by any member of the Oiler management, Martin says he feels confident that he can furnish them with n fairly complete roster of unhappy Gasser followers. If we have bored you fans bv continually dragging: this subject before jou, we apologize, but we lelt that we were forced to have our say. Now,, if no one tries to bulldoze us intt> printing a retraction on a statement that we are sure is facts, this will be the jast^you^hear on the matter. Tyler Manager. Beats Henderson 10 io 7 The Associated Press) Rotund Hack Miller Tyler manager and catcher, took over the hurling duties with his team behind 7-0 in the second inning. last night (Wednesday) and hurled the Trojans to a 10-7 victory over the Henderson Oilers.

Boosting His Average Daily By The Associated Press Cancel the obits on Joe Dimaggio's career and add a new chapter. The Yankee Clipper has recovered a shaky ,143 start and boosted the New York dub into the thick of the American League fight with his .340 average. More than one critic crossed off Dimaggio as "just another ball player" when he failed to hit .300 last year. His heel injury and subsequent hitting slump co-incided with a general Yankee decline this spring. Some harsh critics included his name in mention of a general housecleaning at the stadium. That was before President Larry MacPhail fined him $100. Starting with the Yanks' shutout cohquest of Detroit's Hal Newhouser, the night after the fines were publicized, Dimaggio has been hitting like a fiend. In seven games he has smashed 15 hits and driven in 13 runs and batted .556. The Yanks have won six of their last seven, moving into second place, three and a half games behind Detroit. Last night the Yanks had a rollicking 9-5 victory over the Washington Senators. Dimaggio continued his sensational streak with .See DIMAGGIO, Page 12 CPAIiT can on BB i "^BB Pampa News, Thursday, May ,29, 1947 PAGE 11 Johns Austin Wins Golf Tournament With 2 Up Victory Over Bill Barton John Austin defeated Bill Barton two up in the finals of the Championship Flight of the Pampa Country Club's City Golf Tournament, it was announced yesterday.
