Oil Friday night, the Har- vesterettes will go to Borger for a return game, the Borger girls having defeated the Harvcstcrcttes here last week. Shamrock's Irishmen have been "going places" this season in the words of Coach Praegcan. The Harvesters won a four-point victory from the Irishmen in the recent Mobeetle tournament. The game was ;one of the best of the season and a great battle is expected Friday night when the teams meet here, JUST WHAT THE MAT GAME NEEDS CELEBRATED CRIPPLES ARE TRYING TO HIT COMEBACK TRAIL Theater Block Will Be Roped Off Thursday Handling of "bank night" traffic this Thursday will approximate that of last week by the police department. The block in front of La Nora theater will be roped off from 8:30 to 9:30 p. m. Cars, however, will not be allowed to park against the ropes and near the fire plugs as they did last week. Blocking of sidewalks and the streets in front of the Rex and Static theaters will not be permitted. Cars parked inside the ropcd-oof block will not be allowed to be moved during the hour period.

Their -handlers nodded heads and so id these were signs that each had reached his p.eak for their bout Thursday night in which Klick will try to lift Ross' synthetic junior .welterweight title. Light workouts were ordered for both young men to avoid dulling the edges of their contrasting fighting tempers. Klick cuffed and roughed Eddie Reilly, his sparmate, yesterday. Ring- Eiders said they they heard him growl: "I'd knock Ross' cars off today." Affably, but with great accuracy, Ross punched the bag. Baer Brothers Knock Out Foes C. C. Worley of LeFors was a visitor here last night. TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 22 (/I 5 )—Six thousand fans were ready to testify today that the Baers—Max, the world's heavyweight ctyamp, and Buddy, the 230-pound little brother —can punch. They saw Max toy with Tony Cancela, a home-town boy of no little ability, and then shake him to his knees in a 4-round exhibition match last night. Buddy knocked out Marty Hogan, 210, of Salem, Mass., 31 seconds after the opening bell. Tokyo has five municipal hospitals for the care of the poor.

BY EDDIE BREITZ, Arvociatod Press Sport:' Writer. NEW YORK, Jan. 22 W)—Scattered the length and breadth of the land, baseball's most celebrated group of cripples is preparing to hit the comeback trail this season. Not in 20 years have so many cnc-time first rung performers been faced with the necessity of regaining something akin to their former brilliance or being shunted off to the minors or to the baseball bone- yard. The Boston Red Sox have made a big investment in young Joseph Edward Cronin, as manager and hortstop, but they scarcely will igurc to get anywhere in the Amer- can league pennant race unless the clebrated southpaw, Robert Moses Grove, can shake the soreness out f his arm and regain the effcctivc- icss of his days with the Athletics. Grcve, who cost Owner Tom Yawkey about $100,000, won eight ind lost eight games last season while struggling to get rid of the irst sore arm of his career. He IBS had some more teeth extracted, lis tonsils removed, and believes low he will make ff comeback. Boston fans also will watch the ittempted comeback of George Pipgras, former Yankee righthander, who retired last season after start- ng only one game for the Red Sox. Babe Ruth isn't exactly a cripple jut the veteran slugger, who in- ists he is through unless he gets a nanagerlal job, is among a half dozen question marks on the Yan- <ee roster. The club has reserved judgment on glowing reports of the physical condition of Earle Combs, who fractured his skull last season; Bill Dickey and his broken hand; the Bright outfielder prospect, Dixie Walker, on the sidelines all last year with a bad shoulder, and Pitchers Russell Van Atta and Johnny Allen, disappointments of 1934. William Watson Clark, until two years ago one of the best south- jaws in the National league, probably will get his last chance to make \ comeback with the Dodgers this spring. Hard-luck club of last year, because of injuries to several stars, the Washington Senators hope to shako off the jinx this year. They have traded one of their casualties Catcher Luke Sewell, but expect Jonathan Stone, the outfielder who broke an ankle last July, to show complete recovery. Charlie Gelbert, idle for two seasons after a gunshot wound in the leg, expects to do a real comeback at short with the Cardinals. Rabbit Maranvllle insists he will play regularly at second for the Braves, but he is another gamble He broke a leg in spring training last year and was out all season.

Whenever the story of Missouri is told, th,e noted Austin family of Potosi is accorded a prominent place for its outstanding pioneer work in the state, and when the American history of Texas is recounted the narrator ever must begin his tale with this remarkable father and son. Here in Potosi today, in a quaint burial vault rest the remains of Moses Austin. The town of Potosi he founded and he dwelt for a time in Ste. Genevieve, Mo., which in August of the present year will hold a bicentennial celebration of its inception. Here Stephen F. Austin spent some of his earlier years. Moses Austin, who had been a lead miner/moved with his family in 1798, to the rich lead mining district in Louisiana territory, took the oath of allegiance to Spain and settled at Ste. Genevieve. He soon obtained a valuable mining land grant, where he founded Potosi. He was the first to make sheet lead in America, the first to erect a reyer- beratory lead furnace west of Pittsburgh and he also operated- a shot tower at Herculaneum. He became one of the wealthjies men in Missouri of his day. The younger Austin, although born in Austinville, Wythe county, Conn., received his early education ' at Bacon academy in that state. He then spent two years at Transylvania university in Lexington, Ky., where he graduated at the early age of 16. He returned to his Missouri home in 1810 and associated himself with his father in their prosperous and expanding business. The younger Austin was elected to the Territorial Legislature of Missouri in 1814. He wa's re-elected until 182Q, when he was appointed judge of the First Judicial district of Arkansas territory. He received training in Jegul procedure during these . terms of ""• which proved of inestimable value to him later in his work of colonizing Texas. In 1820, the year following the panic of 1819, which had wiped out thje Austin fortune, Moses Austin was granted by Spain a tract of land within I he present State of Texas upon condition that he colonize there 300 families. He returned to Missouri but died the next year from exposure and hardships endured on his trip to the wilds. When word of his death reached Stephen, his plans for the settlement of Texas already were being put into execution by the son. The tale of Stephen F. Austin's civil conquest of Texas needs no recounting. Overcoming many obstacles he achieved his aims. He died in Columbia, Texas, Dec. 27, 1836. He is buried in the Peach Point cemetery, in old Brazorla county, Texas, where he had made his home. ARE AS GOOD AS PANiPA'S QUINTET Turkey Nose? Out Rapidly- Improving Bulldogs By 3 Points at Floydada Today, Plainview's Bulldog basket ball team loomed as a mufch more powerful foe than it did yesterday, and Coach Odus Mitchell and his Harvesters were rehearsing for ari- 'other nip and tuck battle here Saturday night. The Harvester mentor was inclined to believe that Plainview might not have as good a team as in previous years when he learned the Bulldogs were swamped by the Lubbock Westerners who in turn were routed by Borger. Today, it became known here that Plainview NO DUCK SHOOTING FOR Y URGED BY 'LITTLE , _ . ( But Manufacturers of Arms Oppose It; Congress Will Likely Vote oh Issue. BY BOB CAVAGNAHO, Associated Press Sports Writer, NEW YORK, Jan. 22 (fP)— It was the little fellow pitted against the big fellow today as the twenty-first American Game conference took up the "loaded" question of whether a one-year moratorium on duck shooting should be declared in the United States and Canada. The little fellow is represented by hunters who have makeshift equipment and can get out for only one or two days a season, while the big fellow is th.e one who operates a club for a profit or belongs to an exclusive private club. • 5to in the background, supporting the latter variety, are the manufacturers of arms and ammunition, who would feel most heavily the effects of a one-year ban. For five years sportsmen have beeij putting off action on the steadily diminishing, population of waterfowl. / ' Amateur statisticians estimate there are approximately 1,000,000 duck-shooters in the United States, with the "little fellow" in the majority to the extent of 80 or 90 per cent. While it would deprive them of duck shooting for a year, they are represented as being in favor of the prohibition. The National Association of Audu- boii societies is expected to present a resolution requesting endorsement of a closed season. Whatever decision is reached, however, may be nullified or aided by the action of Rep. William Berlin of Pennsylvania, who plans to appear at the conference- in defense of a bill he introduced in congress calling for a closed season from July 1, 1935, to July 1, 1936. Decision by the conference for a year's moratorium would be passed on in the form of- a recommendation to the migratory treaty advisory board, composed of Canadians and Americans, who in turn would turn it over to Secretary of Agriculture Wallace >wJth final .decision lei t to I president Roosevelt. last week asked to be matched with the strongest team in the Ploydada tourney. Don Duncan's Turkey Turks wlifo meted out the only defeat the Harvesters have sufferec on the local floor this season, was named as the Plainview opponents Turkey won 25 to 23. The Bulldogs put up one of the best scraps of the season, although they missed a flock of crip shots. Turkey wa. sure fire in field shots. The fae that both teams played on a foreigr court means to Coach Mitchell tlia Plainview made just as good a show ing against the Turks as the Har vesters did. Tomorrow night the Plainview cagers will cl^eh with the Amarilli Sandies on the Bulldogs' court, anc the result of that game should give the Pampans more informatioi about the Plainview team. Th Sandie-Bulldog game will be a batfcl between veterans and rookies. Bu, Coach Lovvorn's rookies have a* way of acquiring polish with surprising rapidity. The Bulldog crew startei this season from scratch with no one first string man from last sea son's squad but it is generally con ceded that they will make thei mark before the season is over. Amarillo has enjoyed success or the Sandie floor. Harlow, Stidgei Peterson and Bufkin, the Bi Berthas in Texas Intei-scholasti league football last season, nosei out Borger by one point and Pamp: by six points. The Borgans com plained here last Saturday nighf that they were more the victims of loose refereeing than good basketball players in the Amarillo game. The Sandies play an aggressive, smothering game which some officials might think rough, Pampans who saw them play, thought. However, the Sandies are scheduled to turn up holding the short end of the score at Lubbock, Lec- mesa, and perhaps Plainview. If they best both Lubbock and La- -nesa on the latter's home courts ihey will indeed be rated high. -—~- •«*» —, — Rabbit ears bring 5 cents a, pair from the treasury of Ward county, Texas, in a campaign to exterminate the pests, DURHAM, N.

The average veteran is totally un- ible to pay these charges at the present time, with unemployment and general economic conditions what they are. When congress passed the adjusted service certificate act in 1924 it fully intended he average veteran should receive ipproximately $1,000 as a fair ad- ustment between the $1 a day paid iim in this country's armed service, ind the $2.00 a day which was the nlnimum war-time wage received jy every other class of workmen."

COSTLY MILWAUKEE — The menu listed hamburgers at a nickel, but Emil Decker, a bellboy, paid $10 for one. When Nolan Ra'sh, attendant at a stand, asked Decker to pay, the bellhop raised such a howl that police were called to quiet him. At the station, Decker readily jerked $35 bail from his wallet and later was fined $10 and costs on disorderly conduct charges.
