Byron Chody, ace of the Huber pitching staff, worked valiantly through nine Innings, allowing only four hits and fanning 17 batters. He cracked In the tenth along with hlg support and six hits went for six runs. The best Huber could do at bat In the last half of the Inning was to get one run off three hits and have the satisfaction of seeing Lefty Oarlthers leave the mound after three hits had been made off his delivery. Ledford retired the last two batters In order to close the game, played In two hours and 40'minutes. Rally Is Potent. The score was dead even going Into the tenth. Then Coltexo put on a rally that netted them six runs. Huber tried but could overcome the handicap. There were nearly as many stars on the field at Road Runher park as there were in the sky. Standing out were the opposing pitchers— Chody and Carlthers. Although fanning 17, Chody lost the game. His shortstop went to pieces In the tenth and one could feel the tide changing. Chody was the third strikeout.king of the tournament to lose gacmes. Vodle Clemmons of Coltexo "Carbon fanned 17 batters, playing against Phillips of Pampa, and lost. Wlnkler of Phillips of Pampa fanned 27 batters In 24 1-3 innings and lost two out of three engagements. Huber went to the front In the second when Moore cracked a; home run over the right centerfield fence with Simpson, who had doubled, on base. Coltexo marched right back in the game in the sixth, however, Sedbrook opened the inning with a double to center. Hale was safe on Spencer's error and Sedbrook scored, Hale taking second. Huffman and Polvogt went out but Polndexter came through with an infield single that'serit Hale to third from where he scored on Gilbert's error. Spencer Changes Tide. Both pitchers hurled great ball through the rest of the regulation period. Coltexo had three men on base in the ninth but failed to score when a squeeze play went hay-wire. Huber put two men on the paths, through walks, but they died on base. ,. The turning point came in the first half 6f the tenth when Spencer/ Huber shortstop and a former Coltexo shortstop, booted two balls. Hale beat out an infield hit and went to second on Spencer's wild throw. Huffman bunted to sacrifice Hale but was safe when Chody held the ball, undecided whether to throw to third or first. Polvogt untied the score with a single which sent Hale across the plate. Poindexter was safe on a fielder's choice when Spencer tried to get Huffman at home and threw the ball away. Locke fanned for the • first out. Dingman singled. Carithers came through with a double. McNabb doubled. Sedbrook filed out. Hale, up for the second time, filed out. Huber tried valiantly in the last half of the inning. Moore beat out ah infield hit. Warren singled. Sullivan, batting for Brown, fanned. Hack Wilson hit to the pitcher, the ball striking his glove and bounding over the second baseman's head into centerfield for a double, scoring Moore. Ledford went to the mound arid forced Ross and Wilson to ground out. second to first, Flashy fielding, quick throwing to hold runners on base, and great pitching featured the game which held the large crowd in their seats until the last man was out at 12:45 a. m.

All the thrills of the baseball tournament were not packed In to the second- game last night at Road Runnel- park. Phillips of Pampa, the most surprising team In the tournament, almost gave their fellow workmen from Borger ague in the'opening tussle. Borger went into the ninth Inning trail- Ing by two tuns, and "came thru" scoring three runs to take the game 4 .to 3. • Little Lefty Winkler, a curve- ball artist with a great future if handled properly, had the Borger veterans swinging lustily and futily at his sweeping curves and change of pace. He fanned nine batters, bringing his total strikeouts for 24 1-3 innings in the tournament to 27, one more than Vodle Clemmons fanned In 15 innings. Manager R, "Red" Kirkpatrick entered his Phillips-Pampa team at the last minute. He gathered a few extra players discarded by Phillips of Borger and from the Two-I league. Winkler was one of the former Borger players and he almost caused the downfall of his former teammates. Winkler left the game in the ninth, ^being relieved by Haley. Ellis Lasts 3 Innings "Wild Bill" Ellis started on the mound for Borger, lasting only three innings before being relieved by Manager Mulroney after the Pampa aggregation had collected four- hits and scored two runs to break into the lead. Mulroney got into plenty of trouble but got out by himself, fanning five batters at critical moments. Fielding gems cropped up at regular intervals, with the Pampa nine having the edge. Lefty Cox opened the show in the third when he made a great one-handed catch of Jackson's screaching drive, labeled for at least two bases. Holland came up with a shoestring catch of Clark's liner to double Surface off first in the sixth. Borger scored in the second when Surface was safe on Wilson's error. He went all the way to third and scored when Francis was safe on a fielder's cholc, the fielder trying for Surface at home. The Pampa aggregation went into the lead in the third. Winkler opened with a double. Baldwin singled him to third. Holland fanned. Newsome singled scoring Winkler. Baldwin was caught at the plate. Pulliam singled and scored Ncwsome. Mulroney went to the mound for Borger. The Kirkpatrick men advanced their lead by scoring in the. fifth when Baldwin walked, went to second on an out, and scored on Newsome's second consecutive hit. 3 Runs In 9th Three runs in the ninth gave the Borger veterans the game. Newman opened with a single and Litterell ran for him. Surface cracked a triple to right field scorilng Litterell. Clark singled to score Surface and Haley went to the mound. Francis sacrificed and then Beams cracked a triple to ^score the winning run. The next two batters went out. It was the second close call for Bqrger in the tournament. The Phillips aggregation had plenty of trouble defeating the Busby Indians on Sunday. Phillips will come back tomorrow night at 8 o'clock, meeting Huber to see which team will remain in the tournament.

'Silly Mistake* Gives Sir Malcolm 300 Miles An Hour Briton And Bluebird Will Leave For . England SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 4. (/P)— Sir Malcolm Campbell and his Bluebird racer were poised today for a triumphant return to England with a record— finally computed correctly — of 301.1292 miles an hour on land. A "silly mistake"— the words were Sir Malcolm's — kept the "human | bullet" for hours in the belief he . had failed oil the Bonnevllle salt flats to achieve his dream of a mile in 12 seconds. The fact he had bettered his previous record of 276.816 miles an hour by more than 23 miles, as originally figured by the timers, brought only a wry face and a declaration he would have to try "it all again" Thursday. It was far into the night before the officials of the American Automobile Association sent word hurriedly to the intrepid driver, with many apologies, that they had made a mistake. The announcement brought from Campbell the declaration he was "delighted" but that the news was rather in the form of an anticlimax. He altered previous plans to try again tomorrow and ordered the six-ton, 2,500-horsepower Bluebird prepared for shipment. He will em- back at New York September 12, with "the old lady" as he calls his racer, probably on board the same ship, the Majestic. The error came on the return run, after Campbell had flashed northward across the gleaming salt plain at 304.111 miles an hour and brought his huge racer to a safe stop despite a blown front tire. The timers first computed his southbound mile at 295.566 miles an hour, for an average of 299.875 miles. A later check of the electrically marked tape showed the return mile was run in 12.08 seconds, instead of the 12.18 seconds— or 298.013 miles an hour— originally announced, which accounted for the increased average finally credited. Campbell indicated in nn interview last night ho intends to let his new mark stand at least until someone else beats it. Then he may try again. "Someone can build a better machine and go faster," -he said. "Whatever you can do, I can do, and whatever I can do, someone else can do better." His first concern, after a brief rest here, is to get back to England sn Donald. Ms 15-year-old son, may get back to school. Sir Malcolm's chief comment on the run nhd its afteimath of errors was : "Naturally I am pleased but not nearly so much as I would hav*e been this morning. " "It was just a mistake in reading the timer's tape — and such a silly mistake."

Argentine Slide Is Now Available AUSTIN, Sept. 4.—"Life on the Argentine pampas is the intriguing title given to a new lantern slide set prepared for distribution by the Visual Instruction Bureau of the University of Texas. The pictures for this beautiful and vividly colored series were collected by Miss Lillian Wester, instructor in romance language at the university.

Perry of England has one virtue that no other player in the 54th men's national singles tennis championship can claim. It Is consistency. Perry can and at times does turn in an indifferent performance, but not when anything is at stake. He wasn't too impressive in his early matches but his exhibition in trouncing Frankie Parker, fourth-ranking American, dissipated any notion the defending champion would take undue chances. He wants to bo the first foreigner to win the American title three times. Perry's next opponent is Frank Shields, No. 3 on the United States list. 'They will meet in the quarterfinals, but It will take more than Shields' booming service to • upset the brilliant Englishman. The one player in the homebred ranks considered to hnve much chance of extending Perry is young Don Budge of Oakland, Calif., a sensation at Wimbledon this year. They are prospective finalists. As the result of yesterday's rain, which caused the second postponement since the men's, women's, and veterans' championships started last Thursday, the men's final now is scheduled for Sunday at the earliest. Today's program calls for fourth- round men's matches pitting Wilmer Allison against Gene Mako and Roderich Menzel against Gregory S. Mangin. Jax Holds Lead Over Tyler Nine TYLER, Sept. 4 </P)— The Jacksonville Jax held a commanding lead over the Tyler Trojans in the second round of 'the Shaughnessy play-off in the West Dixie league today. They won their second straight game, 7 to 0, here last night and need only one more victory to earn the right to meet the Fine Bluff Judges, champions of the East Dixie loop, for the little Dixie championship. Taking advantage of eveiy break in the first five innings, the Jax counted their seven runs on three hits, two of them homers by Cy Cashion and John Tobin. 'SIZE DOESN'T DETERMINE STRENGTH OF PLAYER/ SAYS HE By PAUL ZIMMERMAN LOS ANGELES, Scut. 4. W)— Grid giants are out at the University of Southern California this year. This has the emphatic announcement of Coach Howard Jones today as he pondered over the task of salvaging from the 1934 season's wreckage material for the coming season. "We had too many men on the team last year," said Troy's head man sadly, "who couldn't handle their weight. If I wasn't convinced before, I am now, that size doesn't determine strength of a football player. "Of course n big man who can handle himself is all right but they are scarce. We'saw plenty of players weighing 175 to 180 pounds last year who could put a 200 pounder out of the play." So the order has gone out from the Trojan grid battlements to reduce and the incoming reports are favorable to Coach Jones. Troy's mentor plans no drastic changes in his football setup to bring his team back into its winning stride. He is going to give the line, which was so weak a year ago, concentrated personal attention, convinced that if the forwards function properly the offense and defense will pretty well take care of themselves . "Open up the offense and throw laterals? Sure," he said, "if we can find players capable of handling them. But my team is not going to throw the ball around a lot because it is the popular thing to do and 1 have the passes fail. "Ambition on the part of the players is our element of hope. "We are in a better position to have a good team than we were last year." The schedule: Sept. 28—Montana. Oct. 5—College of the Pacific. Oct. 12—Illinois. Oct. 19—Oregon State. Oct. 26—California at Berkeley. Nov. 9—Stanford. Nov. 16—Washington State. Nov. 23—Notre Dame at South Bend. Dec. 7—Washington. Dec. 14—Pittsburgh. Dec. 25—Honolulu league champions at Honolulu. Jan. l—U. of Hawaii at Honolulu. COACHES WONDER IF THEY CAN TURN 'BEEP INTO GRID ACES Grid giants are out for the Harvester football team of 1935 and if they learn to handle themselves, things bode bad for the opposition this year. The Harvesters scrimmaged with Coach Bill Bronson's LeFors Pirates yesterday afternoon and at times they looked impressive. Coaches Odus Mitchell and J. C. Prejean are still in the wondering stage—wondering; if their ''beef*' will come through. They realize that a big man who can handle himself is all right, but they are scarce. Plenty of small players can take a big man out repeatedly. And talking of big men, "Moose" Hartman, J. R. Green, Stokes Green, "Bronc Nagurski" Bowsher, Dencil Sparlin, Holt Hamlett, Chubby Stewart and one or two more of the Harvesters can be put in that class. J. R. Green, switched to end, demonstrated that he is going to be a sweet passer as well as power in taking out opposing tackles. Green made a couple of great shags yesterday and generally looked better than last yea?. Big "Moose" Hartman is learning fast and if he can handle his weight, the other side of the line shpuW be well taken caye of. There we several smaller boy? fighting for Bositiiojis against the hwskieg and. totals m esjjeetefl to ge$ ln|iereg.t.- ing" The backfield is a combination of speed and power. "Chubby" tSew- art is in shape and if he continues to improve and stay in condition, Roy Showers is going to have a fight on his hands for the fullback position. Brown and Drake at halfback positions and "Red" Fanning calling signals would make a formidable array of talent in the backfield, if they can get. together. The team is green, mighty green. It is going to take work and plenty of it to whip the eleven into shape was the comment of the coaches. LeFors has a mighty promising squad. The team is much larger than test year and there is more speed cropping out already than during last year. Freshmen are showing up well >and are liable to beat out some °f the veterans. The work of Hal Scott yesterday was outstanding; Twigg, a: freshman, also showed up well In the backfield. Much is also expected of Morgan, a letterman from last year. > Mathis, switched to end, is apparently a find in his new position, Drlggers, a freshman tackle, is also listed among the most promising prospects. Slmms, center, and Ha}l, new midget guard, are among oilier promising prospects. The Pirates open the season Sept, 13 with Sayre, Qkla.. providing the. RAIN POSTPONES ALL GAMES IN MAJOR LEAGUES By ANDY CLARKE Associated Prers Sports Writer Dolorous Bill Terry looked up at the black skies, felt the ran falling and bemoaned the turn of events that seemed to him to be dictated by a malicious fate. The Giants, just one game behind the Cardinals on Labor day, had hoped to sweep a doubleheader with the Phils while wishing ill luck to the Cards, who were engaged in a double bill with the Pirates. The rain washed out the Giant games while the cards bagged two and went two up on the New Yorkers in the league standing. Rain caused postponement of the doubleheader again yesterday, and Terry and his men disconsolately packed their bags and set off for Cincinnati with some tough joust- Ing ahead if they would fly the bunting at the end of the tourney. They must battle on foreign fields and against worthy foes whereas the Cardinals draw some soft pick- Ing in their own ball yard . The Cubs, only a half game behind the Giants, also will be entertaining at home. With the second division Phils, Braves and Dodgers scheduled to be their guests, they loom as a strong threat to bust right out in front of the present loaders. The only bright spat in the coming drive, as far as the Giants are concerned, is that the season closes with the Cards and the Cubs in each other's hair, while the Giants will be engaging Brooklyn and the tail-end Braves. With the Tigers drifting farther and farther away from the pack in the American league, the old cry of too great a concentration of power has been sounded again. It was the same cry that went up in the Ruth- Ian heyday of the Yanks and it has brought about an early discussion of trades. With the games rained out in all sections yesterday, the dopesters sat around and discussed possibilities. It is known that the Yanks intend to bolster their outfield and infield with new talent, Washington is preparing to sell or barter, and Tom Yawkey of the Red Sox has signified his intnelion of swapping gold for hitting power. Connie Mack is reported ready to consider cash offers for Higgins and Foxx while Mickey Cochrane may let Walker and Owen go.

At St. Joseph's infirmary here, Dr. Gco. C. Lcnch- man pronounced his playing ended 'for this season, THREE TEXAS SURE OF BEING By The Associated Press Five teams remained in the Texas league pennant race today with Oklahoma City in the lejid. Oklahoma City, Beaumont, and Galveston, according to percentage standings, were sure of being in the playoff. Tulsa and San Antonio still faced a fight for fourth place. Oklahoma City maintained its lead for one and one-half games over Beaumont last night by winning from Dallas, 7-1. Patrick McLaughlin pitched and batted Beaumont to a 3-2 win over Galveston. He limited the Bucs to two singles and slammed out a home run in the seventh that broke a 2-2 deadlock and gave the Exporters the game. Murray Howell, Fort Worth castoff, played left field for Tulsa and led the Oilers to 2-1 victory over his former teammates. Howell hit a home run for the Oilers' first tally in the fourth. Then he stole second and home in the ninth for the winning margin over Fort Worth. San Antonio go off to a flying start and harided Houston its tenth consecutive defeat, 5-3. The Missions, hustling hard in an effort to catch Tulsa, scored three times off Bill McGee in the opening round, another in the third on Wise's error and chased the fast-ball artist in the fourth with two away. DALLAS, Sept. 4. (/P)—Plans for the Shaughnessy playoff for the Texas league pennant were before club owners today. J. Alvin Gardner, president of the loop, asked the owners to meet with him to work out the details. The regular schedule will end Sunday, and officials had expressed the belief that the first round of the playoff probably would start the following Wednesday. According to the plans, the club finishing in first place would play the fourth place club while the second and third teams would meet in the other series of the first round for the best three out of five games. Winners of these two series would fight it out until one team won four decisions, and the right to represent the league against the Southern Association champion in the Dixie series. No position has been cinched. The percentage columns, however, show that Oklahoma City, the league leader, Galveston and Beaumont are sure of being first round participants. A fight remains between Tulsa and San Antonio for fourth place. Read The NEWB Want Ads.
