THURSDAY EVENING, APRIL 15, 1937. Brickell Uses 16 Players And Ponca City Wins 11-3 Deciding: to find out how his freserve material looked before cutting the squad. Manager Fred brlckcll of Pampa's new baseball team used nearly his full list of available players yesterday af- ieirhoon against Ponca City. The result was disastrous, the Angels copping an 11 to 3 decision. This afternoon manager Brickell planned to cut loose several prospects who have been trying to make the team and concentrate on the players he intends to keep. His additional strength is expected to arrive, before the end of the week or eftrly next week in time to get in shape for the invasion of the Homestead Grays, negro team from Pennsylvania, which will play the Pampa nine tomorrow and Saturday nights, weather permitting. Should team officials think the weather too cold fdr night play, the games will be staged in the afternoons. Carl Stewart showed old time forrh during the first three innings of yesterday's game but was nicked i for a pair of runs and four bingles ! iti the fourth. Braly and Prince. | succeeding mound artists, were j banged freely.. Manager Brickell , used Keyser and Feltncr In his out- ! field position and sent Howard to second and Free to first after the [ fourth inning. ' A. young giant named Boyd threw curves and hard ones from an overhand slant to hold the Pampans to , nirie bingles while his teammates j banged out 17 base hits Including four doubles. Weigandt and Callahan were the Angel powerhouses at the plate with three bingles each. McLarry. Season and Lisle collected two each to lead the Pampa sluggers. .

Henflcn xvas freed from the Milwaukee club of the American association by Baseball Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis yesterday, in a ruling that carried an implied rebuke to the Cleveland Indians for attempting to "cover up" the player to prevent his advancement to major league surroundings under the draft rule. At the head of the list on Henrich's trail were the New York Giants, whose manager. Bill Terry, was on record as saying he would offer $20,000 to sign the outfielder. The Cincinnati Reds were "Interested but did not intend to go haywire on the matter." Connie Mack has madf an offer of an undisclosed sum to Henrich, and Clark Griffith, owner of the Washington Senators, declared he was interested but cannily said his action would depend on how high Henrich's terms were. Commissioner Landls ordered that Henrich, who has played with Milwaukee only in spring training games withhold consideration of offers until Friday. : Displaying the form that helped him set a new world polo vault mark of 14 feet, 7% inches, Bill Sefton, Trojan star, is pictured as, face contorted and muscles tense, he made one of nis epic jumps at the Los Angeles track meet. Sctton's record vault hclned the University of Southern California score a smashing victory, 79-52, over the California Bears, and bettered the 14 feet. G'/i-inch murk set in 1936 by Varoff of San Francisco LAWRENCE. Kas., April 15 WV- The same gritty oval which first saw the budding of Glenn Cunningham into a runner of national fame again will feel the pounding of his spiked shoes again as the barrel-chested former University of Kansas athlete competes in a special mile race at the Kansas relays Saturday. His competition this week may force him to lower that mark to win. He will run against another Kansan—Archie San Roman! of Emporla State Teachers college—the youth who showed his heels to both Cunningham and Jack Lovelock, winner of the Olympic 1500-meter run, in the Princeton invitation lost year. «•> TO DEFEND TITLE SAN FRANCISCO.

Entrants In Track*Field Meet To Be Picked Today ®- (Tly Thr Apsoplnlpfl Prcssl The ( fnt was in the fire today for the eight clubs of the Terns Longue, newly-launched in their quest for the 1937 pennant. Managers of the circuit studied the results of the four opening games yesterday (including two night contests) for light on what they could expect from their generally untried outfits. At first glance it appeared the league was prepared to furnish stiffer competition for the fans than last year. The winners yesterday were Dallas Beaumont, Tulsa and San Antonio They played before 23 644 patrons of which the largest single group 10,300. saw the Steers beat out the Port Worth Cats in an explosive eighth inning. The Cats' Dig Ed Greer looked like a winner as he held the Steers to three Ineffective hits in the first seven innings he was on the mound. Then Dallas bunched six of its nine hits and capitalized on an error for five runs, their total for the nlsht, to squeeze by the Cats 5 to 4. Al Ba-. ker and Curt Pullerton pitched for Dallas, allowing eight hits. At Houston 5.500 fans saw the Buffs drop their first opening game in 11 years. They lost to San Antonio, 6 to 3, four errors, a balk and poor baserunning contributing to their defeat. Stevenson allowed the Missions 12 hits, while Muncrief and Liebhardt were granting Houston 10. Galveston's faithful were treated to a fine pitcher's battle in which Boots Poffenbergcr, young right- hander, triumphed over Kddie Cole, Beaumont defeating Galveston 3 to 0. Cole pitched hitless ball for seven innings. A hit and an error in the eighth and a homer in the ninth was his undoing. Poffenberger granted four hits. The crowd numbered 6,696. The 1936 champions. Tulsa, rode home an 8 to 7 winner over Oklahoma City in an opening day that, despite perfect weather, brought out only 1,148 patrons. Manager Bruce Connatser of the Oilers singled in the ninth to cap a three-run rally to overhaul an Indian lead. Coaches Odus Mitchell and J. C. Prejean planned to hold final track and field trials this afternoon to decide who will compete in the district two Interscholastic league track and field meet Saturday. With only one veteran back from last season, the Harvester thinclads will be pressed hard to retain their title of district champions. Others will be new to the game and will be in the meet without previous competition. Despite a fractured wrist, received when he fell on a hurdle, James Dewey will compete in the high | jump and broad jump. He will be unable to compete in track events, however. After a long workout yesterday, coaches would not make definite announcements regarding their participants. "Wait until tomorrow afternoon," was their order. for an Injunction to prevent the Chicago Braddock-Louls go, meantime directing Garden attorneys to file briefs within a week. He refused to consider tjie announced boycott of a Schmellng- Braddock fight as a factor in the case, and took no official notice of a statement by George W. Whiteside, Garden counsel, that promoters of a Braddock-Louis fight are "a bunch, of outlaws," who should be made' "to explain why they pay boxers to repudiate their contracts." buitocliEk BASE sttir CHATTANOOGA, Tenh.—There Is a rumor current that Leo Durocher, Cardinal captain, has become plate shy since he was hit in the fade by a pitched ball at St. Petersburg, Fla,, March 31.
