THURSDAY EVENING, JANUARY 24, 1935. THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas PACK PLAINVIEW GAME ESTABLISHES BULLDOGS AS FAVORITES SATURDAY NIGHT IRISHMEN WILL COME SEEKING REVENGE FOR DEFEAT Two of the Harvesters' foes in the Panhandle Class A basketball league improved their ranking over the Pampa cagers, on the basis of comparative scores, in a game last nig-ht at Plninvlew where ths Sandies again won a battle by a small margin, defeating the Bulldogs 30 to 28. Thus the dope sheet—which Improved just as reliable as unrrllnbb this season — established Plainview as the favorites in the game here Saturday night. ' Because Amarillo beat Pampa 6 points and nosed out the Bulldogs by only Z points, Plainview is given a' 4-point edge over the Harvesters. Conceding that Plainview would put up a competent scrap, Coach Odus Mitchell was loath to cross that bridge before he got to it. His present worry is the Shamrock quintet which will invade Pampa tomorrow night to seek revenge for a beating the Harvcs'crs handed the irishmen in the Mobsctic tournament. He was aware that Pampa beat Shamrock in that game by only 4 points, the same margin of victory which the Pampans held after the thrilling tattle with Borger last Saturday night. The game wi-L'.i Shamrock will be preceded by a fit between the Pampa and Panbrmc'.e midgets, those little fellows in high school who just didn't grow but whose grades are usually in the 90's. Most of them are sophomores, juniors, and seniors and are taking their first and final fling at high s=hoql athletics. The game will start promptly at 7:30 o'clock. Thcrp will be n preliminary Saturday night starting at the same time. Amarillc's victory last night was no surprise—the Sandies were heavy favorites. But the Amarilloans will not be so highly favored tomorrow night to trounce the Lubbock Westerners, and they will be the underdogs against Lamesa tonight on the Dawson county court which is small and has a concrete floor. Neal, Plainview foi-ward, looped fcur field goals and a charity toss for 9 points. Plainview grabbed a 4 to 2 lead in the first period but the Sandies soon overcame tly? handicap and never fell behind again. At the half the Sandies had a 17 to 13 advantage. The crazy dope sheet now records that Amarillo has defeated Pampa, Borger, Plainview; that Pampa has beaten Borger; that Lubbock has whipped Plainview 2914; that Borger hns crushed Lubbock 22-11; that the Sandies lost to Hereford who bested Tulia who lost to Pampa. Conch Mitchell yesterday watched the Harvester substitutes rage like a blizzard for a few minutes in a scrimmage against the Harvester first string—minus Scott who is still suffering from a cold and was temporarily on the sidelines resting —before the starting lineup could function effectively. The day before the first string boys looked like world beaters. Despite the slump of a few minutes yesterday the boys continue to improve, and this week's practice sessions have developed more court finesse and polish than was evident in all the preceding weeks. Last night, the first string finished in a whirlwind of field goals. The Harvesters hope to be able to use plays tomorrow and Saturday night, and not be forced to pass haphazardly. The practice this afternoon will be designed to add new luster to the polish on these plays. Milk Shortage Faces Southwest Says Oklahoman OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 24.

NEW YORK, Jan. 24 (IP)— The secret prayer of young George Selkirk, most promising of the Yankee's youthful outfield crop, is that George Herman Ruth sticks to his determination to remove himself from tine outfit into some managerial berth elsewhere. Only one thing has Selkirk against the Babe, and it's all in fun, which makes it worse, Selkirk is something more than extremely ticklish, and the Babe not only knows it but takes every advantage of it. On the face of it, that sounds un- impcjrtant. Bujj Yankee experts credit Ruth with unwittingly chasing Selkirk out of the American league in 1933 with schoolboy tricks that had the young outfielder jittery. They say, too, that last season, when George came up from Newark to replace the battered up Earle Combs in center field, he'd have been even better than the .300 hitter, classy fielder, and' smart runner he turned out to be, if the Babe had let him alone. "Why don't you belt the big guy once and for all?" asked a teammate. "That'd stop him." Selkirk, a powerhouse of an athlete, with a well nigh perfect record in free-for-alls, stared. "What?" he gasped. "Hit the Babe?" Career or no career, that wasn't being done as far as Selkirk was concerned. Dixie Walker tells another story about this big fellow whom the Yankees are counting on definitely as a regular in an outfield that so far includes Ben Chapman in left. The question of Ruth's willingsness to try another term in right, Combs' recovery from injuries, the condition of Walker's throwing arm, and the fate of a trade now in the making, all figure in the other regular post. Walker' says Selkirk is a: great natural fighter except for his teeth. In Newark one afternoon*,- Selkirk was on first base waiting to be advanced when a fight broke out on the other side of the diamond. Selkirk has a lot of fancy bridge work in the front of his mouth, so he carefully plucked this out, Walker says, and neatly tucked it under one corner of the first base bag, where he figured it was safe, before tearing across the field and into the fray. "He's & right careful man," said Walker. Bell Community Farmers Elect 1935 Officers Farmers of Bell community met January 23 with 21 persons present.

(IP)- —A ban against adoption by the Texas board of education of text books written by teachers in the state public education system would be eliminatec by a bill introduced by Senatoi Clint Small of Amarillo. • "It seema to me our teachers should be the ones best qualified to write text books for Texas schools,' Senator Small observed, noting tha the board of education had interpreted a statute as prohibiting the practice. Adoption of a Texas written text was rejected last year by the board for that reason. New West Texas ^ Road Designated AUSTIN, Jan. 24. (/P)—A northwest highway frcm Midland, on the east-west Bankhead route, has been designated by the Texas highway commission to connect with highway 51, formerly number 137, in Andrews county. The commission ordered its engineers to locate the route as soon as possible. After that, rights of way will be obtained. Engineers were undecided on the location, although a preliminary report of the division office indicated a road from 16 to 19 miles long might be sufficient to connect the two present highways. On the basis of that length, the new highway would leave highway 1 west of Midland and intersect highway 51 south of the town of Andrews. PLAINVIEW, LUBBOCK, ROPESVILLE, TULIA WILL BE FOES Four games will be played by the Pnmpa Harvesters on their road ,rip, which will begin Wednesday. Tho team, accompanied by Coach Odus Mitchell, will go to Tulia for a game Wednesday night. Ropesville will provide the competition Thursday night. The team will be In Lubbock Friday night and in Plainview Saturday night. The Harvesters will play a return ;amc with the Tulia Hornets, having defeated that quintet here a few weeks ago. Tulia, from the dope sheet, has a much stronger team now than when they appeared here. Tulia last week defeated Hereford after the White Faces had won from Amarillo and after the Sandies had defeated the Harvesters. Which, makes the Hornets rank above the Harvesters at the present time. Coach Mitchell and his boys will leave here Wednesday and will rest in Tulia before the game. They will leave early Thursday morning for Ropesvllle, where they will meet one of the strongest teams in this section of the state. Ropesville defeated only by Lamesa last year, has an almost veteran team back this season. Reports received here indicate that Ropesvllle will provide stiff competition for the Harvesters. The Ropesvllle team has won 20 games this season, Coach Mitchell has been informed.
