Lufkin went down to Jackson- ille, 4-3, yesterday as Tommy Reed ingled home the winning run in he ninth inning. Kilgore pounded out 17 hits for i bases in defeating Longview, 3-10. Joe Kracher, Marshall •rowrt and Sanders each hit home runs for Kilgore, while Jess Landrum hit one for Longview. A ninth-inning rally gave Henderson a 2-0 victory over Marshall and Tyler had an easy time v/itl; Bryan, 15-7. Ask me about my business On the Border Higlnvay Giant-Yankee Subway World Serie since 1937, proudly pointed toda to the slugging Joe DiMaggio of th Yankees and Johnny Mize of th Giants as the belting bellwether who may lead their respectiv blocks into the October classic. DiMaggio, after a slow start, i hitting on all cylinders again, look ing, more and more like the Difyla of old. in the past two weeks, th older of the DiMaggio brothers ha. tipped his batting average mor than 100 points and is now breath ing hotly on the neck of teammat George McQuinn for the individua batting- leadership of the America! League. He is currently hitting .35! two points under McQuinn. Inspired by Joe's hitting spree lhf> Yankees have knocked off thci opponents nine times in their las 12 starts to advance from second division to second place. Just as DiMaggio has sparked th Yankees, so has Mize spearheader the Giants-in their rise to the to[ of the National League. Big Jawn leads all Major League batsmen with a mark of .370, is first in homers with 14 and trail? Boston's Earl Torgeson by one will 35 vims batted in. Mize's superior slugging is the number one reason Mel Ott's charges are lending the Chicago Cubs bj one-half game. DiMng banged two round tripper? yesterday, one with the bases loaded, to load the Yankees to an 11-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians before 47,132 fans at Mutiicipa Stadium, With the first game of the double header delayed by rain the second was halted by darkness Mize contributed five hits in eight times at bat ns the Giants camp from behind to earn a split with the Cincinnati Reds before .45,795 fans at the Polo Grounds. The Reds aided by Eddie Miller's 10th home run In the ninth inning with one on, won the opener 5-3, but the Giants slugged out a 13-9 victory in the nightcap. Clyde McCullough's triple aftei Bob Sturgeon had reached first on Jim Tabor's error in the eighth inning broke a 3-3 tic and gave the Chicago Cubs a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies before 14,841 rooters in Philadelphia. The Boston Braves advanced into third place, one game behind the Giants, by sweeping both ends of a doubleheader, 2-0 and 8-7, with the Pittsburg Pirates in Boston. Rookie righthander Harry Taylor came through with another fine pitching performance, holding the St. Louis Cardinals tq'five hits in hurling the Brooklyn Dodgers to a C-l win at Ebbsts Field. Home runs by Jeff Heath and Vern Stephens, combined with the six-hit pitching of Jack Kramer, gave the St. Louis Browns an easy 7-2 win over the Philadelphia Athletics. Rain washed out the second game of the scheduled double header in St. Louis. Rain also caased the postponement of twin bills between Chicago and Boston and Washington and Detroit in the American League. (IJy The.

Today, the Missions had a roommate. • .The pilo.tless Padres split a twin bill •with Beaumont yesterday, losing the opener, 4-2, and taking the ihlghtcap, 7-6. Tulsa dropped, back to share its -former permanent home by bowing_to Port Worth, 76. • in other games, Shreveport handed league leading frouston a double licking, 4-0, 5-1, vaulting over Dallas into third place. Dallas skidded into fourth oh a 5-4 defeat at the hands of Oklahoma City. After first announcing Saturday _ „„„..

NicK Gregory's home run with the bases loaded in the last inning of ithe second game enabled • Shreveport to complete Its whitewashing •job for Houston. In the first game, the Sports pushed over all of their four runs in the first inning, with Manager Francis Parker parking one over the fence. Tulsa staged a five-run rally after two were out in the ninth inning, but the effort fell short and Fort Worth hung on to second place. Burton Barkclew pitched Beaumont to its victory in the opener against San Antonio, when the Missions broke loose for the 13 innings to gain a split before the biggest crowd of the year at Beaumont—5,284. Al Rosen's home run in the second inning started Oklahoma City on 13-hit spree that'Dallas couldn't match. Hank Oana will -make his first start since the opening game of ,the season tonight when Dallas plays host to Oklahoma City in. the finale of a three-game series. The big, 28-game winner of last year has been out with a sore arm and shoulder. > Tulsa winds up, tonight at Fort Worth, as do Houston at Shreveport and San Antonio at Beaumont.

Up to the Belmont, he had been, exposed to Kentucky Italian — spoken by Eddie Arcaro—and he'got no place in a hurry. But Saturday trainer Syl Veitch: made a. switch iand put Chilean Ruperto Donosp aboard for the Belmont, And when Ruperto asked the gentleman from Virginia the same questions he couldn't answer for Eddie, the gentleman turned out t.o be the entire quiz program.
