THURSDAY EVENING, JANUARY 17, 1936. THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas PAGE SEVEN HARVESTERS WILL LOOK LIKE MIDOETS AGAINST TELL FIVE FRIDAY NIGHT feASKETBALt 'CIRCUS' COMING TO TOWN TOMORROW IS Coach Otlus Mitchell was advised at noon today that the Ama- rlllo llig-h school girls' basketball team will not be able to come to Pnmjia tomorrow night to play the HarvestcreKes in a game preceding the clash between TelPri spectacular team ami the Harvesters. Instead, (he Follctt first string Will play the Gorillas In a game beginning promptly at 7 o'clock. It wa«i prsviously announced that the ..first game wtiuld begin at 7':30 o'clock. The Tell boys will return to their Childrcss county homes tomorrow night after the game, and the starting- time for the first games was moved up 30 minutes. Coach Mitchell learned this morning that the Tell team has played 11 games this season and lost only one. The tall fellows on the team will tower, above the Harvesters. The average height of the club Is 6 feet and 2 inches. The boys have scored 332 points this season to 104 for their opponents. ( The Tellites are favored—highly favored—because they beat the Turkey Turks by a dozen or so points, but the Harvesters have improved since their one-point loss to the Turks, and .ardent fans believe they are at least 10 points better. Thus, they affirm, the Tell "treetops" will not have a walkaway. Since the Tell lineup will be in the nature of a circus freak show, and because .the visitors are good, the largest crowd of the season is expected. . Coach Odus Mitchell's Harvesters face three tough foes this week, playing Amarillo, Tell, and Borger.' The Harvesters go to Amarillo tonight, meet Tell here tomorrow night, and play Borger here Saturday night. Both home games will be preceded by preliminaries starting at 7:30 o'clock. Admission to the home games will be 25 cents for adults arid 10 cents for students. The Amarillo girls will meet the Harvesterettes in the opening game tomorrow night. It will be the first game between the two sextets this year. Little is known of the strength of the Amarillo aggreggation., Miss Kathleen Milam has been practicing her team at top speed this week and feels that the girls have hit--their stride at last. Tell is the team that boasts an elongated brother act. Three members of the starting lineup are brothers with the shortest being 6 feet 5 Inches "long." The tallest of the brothers Is 6 feet and 7 inchjgs, with the third member in between. Other members of the team are tall but.on the floor they look like midgets when .beside the three brothers. The Osborne brothers almost sin- gle-hatidedly defeated Turkey Monday, niglit In a wild battle. Turkey took a one-point margin victory from the Harvesters two weeks ago. Tomorrow nigh)t the Harvesters will be pointing to a win over Tell to prepare Turkey for the return game. Borgef's crack Bulldogs have won 10 put of 12 games with both losses being by one point. The Bulldogs have met and defeated some of the strongest teams in this section. Jones, Adams, Dunaway, and West from last year's team are back with the Bulldogs. Preceding the Pampa-B o r g e r game Coach Harry Kelley's Midgets will meet a Midget team from Le- Fors, The game will be called promptly at 7:30 o'clock. .o- Frnka lay Be Waldorfs Aide GREENVILLE, Jan. 17 (/P)—Henry Frnka, football coach of a Greenville high school team that swept the, state in 1033 and was eliminated in the semi-finals the past season, appeared headed for the big time today. Frnka admitted upon arrival home from Oklahoma City last night that he had conferred with Lynn Waldorf, newly appointed Northwestern university head coach,, relative to f a coaching job at the Evanston, 111., school. It was reliably reported Waldorf recommended Frnka's appointment to, the coaching staff. Californ|ians Bet Three Million in 20 Days of Racing LOS ANqELJB, Jan. 17 UP)— Although tiiicky Baldwin has been . dead these many years he seems to have left the heritage of the Midas touch at Santa A:iita Rancho. T For figures disclosed today that the Los Angeles Jockey club operating on the old Elias J. Baldwin estate is operating' at a profit, der spite a' persistent display o.f California's "uijusual" weather. In 30 days of racing more than three., milliqn dollars have passed through the parj-mutuel machines and there are 33 days to go, with the biggest events, the Sanja Anita perby and the Santa Anita handicap to come. Santa Anita pecrk has. operated ' with ah average takp of $159,35^ a day. Of this, four per cent goes to the state and eight plus breakage to the track. The average daily paid attendance lias exceeded some 6,000 persons with the gate figured at $U2,QdQ; . :^, ,: . . The Afnu face, probable first Inhabitants of Japan, has diminished to about 15,000, living chiefly on " i p| NATIONAL LEAGUE MAY TAKE OVER BOSTON BRAVES CLUB NEW YORK, Jan. 17 f/f>)—The possibility thatt he National league might take over the Boston Braves and run the club until a purchaser could be found loomed today as league directors headed here to join President Ford Frick Friday In his struggle with the toughest problem baseball has faced in yeai-s. With the Braves field apparently gone to the dogs, the team dispossessed, President Emil Fuchs close to the end of his financial rope, and Charles F. Adams, whio holds the mortgages, unwilling to take over the team, the new battle of Bunker Hill resolved into a weird but desperate chase for a man with a lot of money who is interested. Failing that—and failure is virtually admitted nt the start—there seems nothing for the league directorate to do but take over the club, settle with Adams and Fuchs, attempt to regain possession of Biaves field and thus maintain an eight- club league until a purchaser is found. I TORS BOYS LETTERS 90 Attend Banquet; Malin Cites Benefits of Football 'If Played Right.' LEFORS, Jan. 17. — Seventeen sweaters, four reserve letters, and five Junior high letters were awarded members of the LeFors high school football team at a banquet in the high school gymnasium last night, attended by 90 members of the team, faculty, parents, and students. The excellent dinner was prepared by the home economics class, taught by Mrs. Josephine Sparks. Supt. F. L. Mize acted as toastmaster, welcoming those present and congratulating the team on its play the last season. He urged the team's of the future to respect their opponents and play their best. Jerry Malin, sports editor of the Amarillo News, was the speaker of the evening. He spoke feelingly on the benefits of football and athletics if the game is played right. The Amarillo writer declared that in his belief there is no other part cf the state or no other state in the union that produces football like West Texas. We in West Texas have what it takes to produce good Ifootball teams," Mr. Malin declared. "Of course we have our weaknesses of backslapping and over-puhlifciaing players, and I. urge you fans to take care not to ruin a boy by boosting him to the sky. No boy in the game can star without the help of his other teammates." The speaker urged the boys to carry on through high school and then go to college to finish their careers. The team was congratulated on Its showing in the last year by Harry E. Hpare, sports editor of the Pampa Daily News, who also predicted an excellent sertson, in 1935. The material was green at the opening of the season but was rounded into a smooth machine through hard work, he reminded the gathering, Short talks were made by R. A. Baige, principal of the LeFors'high school, J. H. Duncan, principal of Junior high and former coach; E. Berg, Francis Smith, assistant coach, and Bob McDonald. Miss Marcella Douglas, football queen, and her two. little attendants, little Misses Bill Jean Johnson and Wanda Ray Fitzgerald, were presented. Charlie Still was elected honorary captain of the 1934 team and received the cap- tail 1's star with his sweater, bear- inn three stripes. Coach Bill Bronson urged Junior hig\ school football as a builder. He congratulated the boys of his 1934 team for their untiring work and cooperation. Coach Bronson then presented sweaters to: Still, 3 stripes; Moore, Maness, Howell, Godwin, Robertson and Combs, two stripes; E. Mathis. Flynn, Hearn, Cumberlidge, Morgan, S. Hall, Duncan, C. Mathis, W. Simmons and Stone, one stripe. Reserve letters were awarded Crosson, Thomas, Harris and Williamson. Junior high letters Were given Hext, Carruth, Simmons, Hall, and Phillips. ^g, THIS WAS SERVICE; CAMDEN, N. J., (M 1 ). — There's nothing like delivering a fire to the door of the, flreho'usje. ""' Captain James Young, of engine company No. 8, raced three blocks to his firehouse when the passenger bus on which he was riding caught fire. A few minutes later, the fire engine clanged to the street. There, in front of the firehouse, was the burningjnis. Ohio's death rate Increased 16 persons a day for the first 6 months of 1934.

The precedent established there was close enough to be followed, as a last resort, in this case. About 1902, an accident In, Philadelphia that cost 18 or 20 lives forced the league to take over the Phillies, pay the players' salaries and run the club for most of the season until a new owner was found. During a ball game there, a rumpus started in a street outside the park. Tire crowd rushed down a wooden runway between the bleachers and grandstand to sec what was going on. The runway collapsed, and the damage suits resulting from deaths and injuries forced the owner, James Potter, into bankruptcy. "There is little likelihood that the league will attempt to buy out Fuchs and Adams," Harvey Traband, league secretary - treasurer, said today. "But every effort will be made to carry, on in Boston. The directors will solve the problem somehow because they must." Racing Meeting Hits First Snag MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 17 (IP)— The first snag in the path| of unanimous action came today as the National Association of State Racing commissioners considered the merits and demerits of open and closed claiming. While only scattered comment came from the executive sessions before the open meeting to consider the proposed uniform code of racing rules, it was indicated Rhode Island's commissioners opposed the modified open claiming rule. As proposed by Chairman William H. Cane of New Jersey the modified regulation set a time limit of 30 days during which a premium of 25 per cent of the claiming price would be a condition for entering the horse in another claiming race. (Continued from page 1.) conference as the "third house" of congress. An avowed foe of the institution, he succeeded in the last general elections in persuading the voters of his state to adopt his plan for a one-chamber legislature and hopes to see the reform carried into congress. What are conferences and conferees? The house passes a bill, for example. It goes to the senate where it may be much amended. The house will not accept the amendments. So the bill is sent to conference. The house appoints three or five members as conferees and the senate appoints an equal number. These meet and discuss the points in disagreement. The conferees of the senate give up some' items and th,e conferees of the house agree to some, or vice versa. Finally they get together on a bill somewhere between the position taken by each house.. Often it happens the conferees do not give up easily. Conferences have been known to drag on for days or weeks and some have run for months. Usually, however, the conferees get together, and as a rule the conference report is adopted by both houses^ Pampan Attends Funeral of Old Ox-Team Freighter Gene Shackleton yesterday attended the funeral, in Mobeetie, of a cousin, William Frank Sander- line, 82, who died in Shamrock Tuesday. Mr. Sanderline was born in Memphis, Tenn. in 1853. He came to Texas in an ox-wagon and was one of the first white men to settle in Wheeler county. He settled at old Fort Eliliott in 1876.

PAMPA TO PARTICIPATE AGAIN IN BIRTHDAY BALL PLAN WHICH WILL SUPPORT DISEASE BATTLE T. W. (Bill) Gilstrap has been appointed to manage Pampa's Birthday balls which will be a part of the national campaign against in- fnntile paralysis. He is appointing committes and will call a meeting soon to make arrangements tor the balls on January 30. • NEW YORK, Jan. 17—Picturing infantile paralysis as the "dark horse of major national diseases" and on? that "will wreak havoc if it is allowed to run wild over the country," COl. Henry L. «Doherly. chairman'of the 1935 Birthday Ball for the president, called on leaders who raised a million dollars last January for the Warm Springs Foundation to redouble their efforts in the 1935 campaign. Money rai.'ied at the parties, which will be held in communities throughout tin; nation on .the evening of the president's -53rd birthday anniversary, January 30, will be divided this year, following a suggestion, made by President Roosevelt himself. At his request, embodying the recommendation of the trustees of George Warm Springs Foundation, no part of this year's funds. will go to that institution. Seventy cents of every dollar will BP used for the 'rehabilitation of handicapped children within the community raising the fund or within the geographic unit of which the community is a part. The other 30 cents will be turned over to Pres- ident Roosevelt to be used by a national commission appointed by him for widening the research efforts aimed at wiping out the disease itself. In his statement, Col. Doherty said that the program last January, in spite of its amazing SUCCESS, raised funds Hint were pitifully inadequate when it came to coping with Ih? national war against the dis- r,n_F£. • ' Only by a renewed nnd far more comprehensive effort this year can we hope to launch a (successful ;ia- tion-widc drive that will eventually succeed in stopping the disease and in giving adequate aid to its victims." Col. Doherty said. He emphasized that the diseas_>, unlike smallpox, tuberculosis, cancer, diphtheria, typhoid fever, yellow fever, and similar maladies, has not until recently been given its proper importance as a national menace. "Although the money raised last year by the birthday celebrations for the president has done unlimit- 'cd Rood," he said, "perhaps more good will come from the fact that the work has, focused the spotlight on infantile paralysis and revealed how the of preventing it and rehabilitating' its victims has been neglected. Speaking in the most ccnservatice terms, the disease is a peril whose gaunt hands annually bring death or physical destruction to thousands of American homes, sknls more than a third of a billion dollars of the nation's wealth every yrar, and costs its survivors hardships that can be overcome only after years of effort." The nr:cd for funds to fight It, he pointed out, is best summarize!?, in a statement made by the late William H. Woodin, former Secretary of thp Treasury, who said: "To be very, very conservative, Infantile paralysis costs the country each year in impaired individual earning pnd buying power some $300,000,000. Furthermore, this cost sum represents cnly the loss of Income—it docs not represent the millions of dollars of annual outgo which af- fltclrd people must pay in the fight lor recovery." "Again being radically conservative." Col. Doherty staled, "this Infit f.vpendllurc can be estimated by multiplying the estimated number of victims—2CO.OOO fcr the na- (icn—Ijy the cost of caring for each of them during a year. Put the figure at S300—a ridiculously low sum—and you have an annual curative cost, of $60,000,000.

M. P. DOWNS Automobile Loans Short and Long Terms REFINANCING Small and Large 604 Combs-Worley Bldg Phone 338 A New Tailor-Making Feature Protected by U. S. Patent Pending A NEW SOLVENT G&SOE.INE Several years ago Skelly refinery engineers began perfecting a solvent to keep gum in solution, so that carbon and gum -would pass out harmlessly through the exhaust. Already, in refinery processes, they had reduced to a minimum the gum and carbon formed with Skelly gasolines. Final result of those tests was the discovery of a solvent with a Kauributanol value (gum-solvent ability) of 27. In the laboratory they referred to |t as "K-27." Now Skelly has added this K-27 to Tailor-Made Skelly Aromnx. This New Skelly development is protected by U. S. Patent Pending. And all this was achieved without adding a harmful "dope". This new solvent, made from petroleum, keeps harmful motor trouble-makers in solution, without damaging your valves or piston rings. This 'year, with K-27 to free your motor from dirty, sticky starting drag, you will start even faster with Aromnx plus K-27. You will start faster, and you will have a CLEAN motor. Go to your nearest Skelly station. Begin getting these exclusively Skelly extra values today: Tailor-Made, plus K-27. You get those extras only in Skelly Aro- max and Skelly Aromax 'Ethyl gasolines.
