^tfflSSAf JW8Nm&,.itiW2B&& 8, ISlS, PAMPA DAILY NEWS, TWO PHILLIPS TEAMS WILL TANGLE IN OPENER Should football weather disappear before tonight, the Pampa Junior chamber of commerce baseball toiirhament will be resumed with'a crack doubleheader on the the books, the first game to be called at 8 o'clock sharp. The two Phillips teams, one from Pampa and the other from Borger, are scheduled to meet in the open- lr)g affray. The nightcap attraction AVill bring together two undefeated favorites, Coltexo Gas of LePors •and .Huber Blackfaces of Borger. •Tlie .losing Phillips team will leave the tournament with one win and two losses, le'aving four teams in the race for the big money. Although managers were silent on their pitching selections, the dope pointed to Manager Mulroney taking the mound for his Phillips of Borger .aggregation, with Savage the probable choice of Manager R. R. Kirkpatrick of the Pampans. A lefthander will have the inside track .for pitching honors for Col- texo against Huber. Lefty Carithers, slender portslder who formerly curv- ,ed the ball for Albany in the In' tertoational league, will probably be Manager Sammy Holes' selection. Byron Chody, ace righthander of the Blackface staff, will in all •probability get the nod to start for Huber. • Huber will come back tomorrow night, weather again permitting, to meet the winner of the first game tonight, Phillips vs Phillips. On Thursday night, the Road Runners will meet Coltexo Gas of LePors in another of their famous encounters. Rain has played havoc with the tournament. Manager A. J. Johnson and the Jaycees are frankly announcing that unless Pampa supports the games during the rest of the schedule, the event is going in the "red." It will take better than $400 crowds at all future games to pull the tournament out of the hole. The best games of the event are before fans and the grand stand should be packed every night from now until the final whistle.

Panhandle 'Goes to Town' With Racing Program BY A STAFF VVBITRK. PANHANDLE, Sept. 3. —The largest crowd that ever attended horse races here in one day thronged the stands and grounds of the Southwest Race Meet yesterday when a total of approximately 3,000 pel-sons gathered early to watch the opening race nl Z o'clock and stayed until 6:20 o'clock when the last of eight races ended. Pampa nnd Amnrlllo largely shared responsibility for the large crowd, although Borgans ran a close second in attendance figures. The Panhandle races are no more what they were two or three years a'go than anything. They have definitely gone to town. There were 1 only two horses in the races yesterday that were entered two years ago—Little Dude and Cabin Camp, and both of them came in first. The pari-mutuel clerks who sold wagers on the horses had a busy day. Before each race, the line before each of the dozen windows was all the way from 50 to 100 persons long. It was estimated that Labor day vacationists wagered about $10,500 yesterday, as compared with $30,000 on the biggest day in the Amnrlllo races last fall. The betting windows are located under the grandstand. Adjoining the stands on the east are the paddocks where the horses are saddled and paraded before the boys and girls who think they can judge a horse when they see one. The names of the horses and the bitting odds are written on a blackboard in front of the stands. All this just goes to show that the races are conducted on the same scale as those at the major tracks, although there are no machines like those used in the betting windows of the ma'jor tracks. It's still a wise thing at Panhandle to pick the jockey instead of the horse, the races yesterday indicated. J. Burk rode three first- place winners and one second in five races. As a whole, the favorites did not reward their backers yesterday. Little Dude, highly favored in the first race, took the lead at the bell and held it until he reached the wire; Cabin Camp won easily; Arthur Coventry, a winner last Saturday, was heavily played as the favorite and he repeated, winning by a nose from Pima Rose. But the "yellow" and "blue" sheets which purported to tell how the horses would finish were largely bad guesses, although they picked three or four winners. Probably the most thrilling races of the afternoon saw Scout Chief SMILE ST, ,)UQms--If some buxom miss c'pnipiajnV that' she doesn't see how shejs gained .so much weight since sli.e eats just like a humming bird, tejl her this: Kach of the 17 hum- nSing birds at the zoo here eats four times jts weight .in 'food daily, •MSEMti AMERICAN LEAGUE Results Yesterday Chicago 1-0.

FOREST HILLS, N. Y., Sept. 3 UPl —Prazikie Parker succumbed to Fred Perry in straight sets yesterday in the men's national singles tennis championship and the after-effects of ills defeat are felt mostly by the U. S. Lawn Tennis association today. Parker went down, G-4, 6-2, 6-0, in a fourth-round match which saw the defending champion, peeved because he was made to play in a chill, wet atmosphere! go "all out' in the last two sets and give one oi the finest exhibitions ever turnec in here. For two years Parker has been one of the association's bright young hopefuls. He's one of the youngsters the U.'S. L. T. A. is counting on to wrest the international Davis Cup from England's Perry and "Bunny' Austin. In Perry's opinion it is very doubtful if Parker will ever grow up to cup stature. 'I never heard of anybody who got to the top without a forehand,' Perry said. Parker wasn't expected to beai Perry, but he was counted on to make a better showing than he did Here and there over the West Side club's courts: Wllmer Allison, the top-seeded American, is piqued because the U S. L. T. A. put him in the same half of the draw with Perry. As the country's No. 1 and last year's finalist, Allison feels he should have been put in the opposite half instead of Don Budge. Now the only chance the Texan has of winning the title is by beating Perry in the semi-final and then taking ovei Budge, who appears to have a cinch path to the title round. All this talk about the United States having a dearth of prospective international material is just so much, talk in the opinion of A Wallis Myers, noted British expert "You have more youngsters playing than any other nation," he said "Just give them time, that's all." There's an umpire 'here who's rabid baseball fan. Refereeing match he called out, after the firs point, "ball one." The crowd loved it. Wichita Youths Capture Dallas Sailing Honors DALLAS, Sept. 3.

Pulver, at the age of 66, is women's champion of the Seneca golf club, Baldwinsville, N Y. She has won many prizes sine taking up the game 15 years ago.

It was a soft job for dusk halted the contest after the fifth inning. The 25,000 fans who flocked to Fenway park saw 24 innings of baseball between the Boston Red Sox and the Weshlngton Senators as the Sox took the tyrst game 9-8 in 11 innings and the Senators won the second, 3-2 in 13 innings.

Elden Auker kept seven hits well scattered as he chalked up his 15th victory in the afternon encounter. Pampa Druggists Beat Skelly 1-0 Playing a brand of .ball new to this section of the country, the Pnmpa Drug playground ball team last night took a thrilling 1 to 0 game from the crack Skelly Oil company team, under the lights at the Skelly-Schaffer plant west of 'Pampa. The lone Pampa run came in the sixth when Morrison hit a home; run, Morrison also played a great game in the field. D. David, drugstore pitcher, allowed the Skellv sluggers only one blngle while his teammates were getting to Ed Hayes for five hits, well scattered. There were a few errors and none of them proved disastrous. It was the second defeat of the year for the Skelly team which has been playing sensational ball.
