Pirates Are Resting Peacefully In Basemen!; Bow to Chicago 7-3 fcy the Associated Press Billy Herman couldn't be blamed if he made the entire Pittsburgh Pirate pitching staff walk the plank. iftto the Monongafyela mud. In the lASt 15 games since memorial day, riot one bucco starter has gone the route. As a result the team is trying to knock a hole In the National League cellar floor. •. Although the Pirates have failed to live .up to their fine spring promise because of their pitching failures, the Forbes Field customers remain t\s loyal as ever. A crowd of 32,132 turned out last night to see the Pirates give a good illustration of the form they showed back East, bowing 7-3 to Chicago. Chicago advanced into a second place tie with the idle Brooklyn Dodgers as a result of the win and the Pirates were rescued from a lonely berth in the basement by Cincinnati's 1-0 win over St. Louis. As a result the luckless Cardinals remained In a seventh-place tic with Pittsburgh. . Rookie Kent Peterson, a highly- publicized rookie who had pitched only one inning/ of major league baseball before this spring, turned back the'Birds with five hits, to the delight of 27,075 customers. The victory boosted the Reds into fifth place, a half game ahead of Philadelphia. The two night games were the Thomuson Glass & Paint Co. 119 W.

Cuyler Phone 1440 Dallas Rebels Wallop First Place Houston Bv the Associated Press Houston's thundering Buffs have been more like lambs for Dallas, the Rebels shearing the herd's Texas League lead against last night, 11-4. That made it two straight, with the final game of the series on tap tonicht. Quentin Altizcr proved the most effective barber the Buffs have run up against this year, the Southpaw Dallas pitcher scattering ten hits and collecting two doubles and two singles in five times at bat. While Dallas was scorning the lofty position of Houston, Shreveport crept within two and one-half games of the lead on a 5-3 decision over Tulsa. In other games, Port Worth defeated San Antonio twice. 5-4, 2-1. and Beaumont thumped Oklahoma City, 10-1. Dallas started with a four-run splurge in the first inning and ended with two runs in the ninth. Between the Rebels were far from idle, Hal Hirshon topping things off with a seventh inning home run. Shrcveport unlcascd a five-hit attack that paid off with five runs in the sixth inning to come from behind a three-run Tulsa lead. Joe Berry, the Sports' effective fireman, held the Oilers at bay the remainder of the game. The San Antonio twin bill was a riot but an escort for umpire Ul- lenberg at the close of the affair kept it peaceable, Ferrcll Anderson's home run in the fifth inning climaxed a four- run rally that won the opener for the Cats, then in the nightcap doubles by Danny Ozarlc and Anderson and Lcs Surge's triple gave them the decision. The largest crowd of San An tonio's season—5,155 fans—started throwing pop bottles at Ullenberg after the umpire had called Andy Anderson out at second base in the ninth inning. Beaumont gave Jack McKinney a six-run lead in the first two inn IIIRS and he protected it well the re mainder of the game to take his ninth victory of the year. Joe Frazicr's home .run over the right field fence gave Oklahoma City its only run. Only two games are scheduled tonight, Fort Worth playing at San Antonio and Dallas at Houston. Tulsa and Shrcveport get Friday the 13th off, while Oklahoma City and Beaumont will make up their scheduled tilt at a later date. This will enable Beaumont to reach Tulsa in time for'a Saturday date.

LOUIS—(/D—Three players shared the leadership with four-under-par 67's in yesterday's opening IB-hole thrust of the 72-holc National Open Golf championship at the St. Louis Country Club. Today's 18-hoJc test will trim an original field of more than 160 professionals and amateurs to GO odd battlers for tomorrow's concluding 3G-hole scramble. Two Texas Products, Harry Todcl of Dallas and Henry Ransom. Houston's gift to Chicago's Northmoor Club, and long-driving Chick Har- bcrt of NorthvJllc. Mich., were the pace-setting trio. A stroke behind the paccsctting three-some was Bobby Loche. whose South African National Flag was run up on the club-house pole yesterday as he tacked together 33-35. This 6.532-yard course, with its narrow fairways ana unresponsive greens, was regarded just up the alley for Locke, who has won four of seven U. S. starts within two months. A stroke behind Locke were four challengers, topped by the front- running amateur Marvin (Bud) Ward of Spokane, Wash. Other GO shooters were Lelnnd Gibson of Kansas City. Dick Metis. pro from Ark-Kansas City. Kan., and unknown Otto Grcincr of Baltimore, who topped the National Open qualifiers and turned pro just recently. Three strokes from the lop were a contingent of five 70 shooters, including Ben Hogan, who learned that putting will be a big problem in this classic which he had never won. Leading U. S. moncy-winnner Jimmy Dcmarct had a 35-41-70 and defending champion Lloyd Mangrum shot a 77, 10 strokes off the pace, with bleak hope of repeating his play-off win over Byron Nelson and Vic Ghczzi at Cleveland last year. Big Spring Leads Longhorn League (By The Associated Press) A 9-0 shutout over Midland last night gave Big Spring a two game lead in the Longhom League today. In the only other game, Vernon romped over Sweetwater, 20-7, in a free-hitting contest that saw the loser outhit the victor, 18-13. A big sixth inning, in which eight runs crossed the plate on six hits, gave Vernon a commanding margin. Odessa's tilt with Ballingcr -was called at the end of the-third inji- inff because of a sudden dust' storm,' followed by heavy rain. Buddy Hackcri, former Texas and Major League catcher, took over managership of the Ballinger team last night, replacing Stu Williams. Williams will remain as the club's first baseman.

In it i;ii;hl v.-jiil' Pampa's unfortunate Oilers arc are slumped worse tlian a twenty- year-old mule after plowin'. ami to arid to an already gruesome situation, the locals are having injury troubles, the more prominent of which is the severe fracture to Joe Portln's ankle, but there is more. There is so much more. In fact, that we can. without undue difficulty, visualize Skipper Grover SciU wandering around the countryside bellowing his ill fortunes louder tlion a walrus with the tush-ache. And well he might, for his unhappi- ncss is understandable. To begin with. Sell// disciples have been without n really competent catcher the whole season and in spite of all efforts by the pilot remained without one until the last Lubbock stand here, at which time one Bill Chambers, allegedly from Phoenix. Ariz., donned the mask and guards. During: his brief tenure Chambers proved quite satisfactory, but he received an injury to his thumb while trying to head off a determined Hubbcr and got rolled over in the crash. Anyhow, he will reportedly be out for ten clays to two weeks. After a not too successful visit home In which they lost two of three games, every one of which was a good game, the Oilers started an even more lamentable road trip. Possibly deciphering the writing on the wall. Seitz handed the managerial duties to Bob Bailey ai-* went in search of talent. How he progressed in his search is not yet known, but the ill fate that lias befallen his hopefuls since his departure is recognizable. While he was trying to secure a few apt hands that, we believe, could round the Oilers into a topflight ball club. Portin broke his ankle, Bill Hewitt has reportedly turned up with a sore arm and Tom O'Connoll has injured a couple of his fingers. The only halfway cheery note that we can hope to dwell on, out of all this, is that tough breaks fust like the favorable ones, have their limitations and we local fans of course hope that the storm is over. circuit boasts superiority i:i ' Devon evr'-.:t:;, thus leaving the final — th" mile rcl.'iy— as th" probable ; ticfi.'-ive contest.

NEW YORK — tfP) — While the "name" golfers of the present are scrapping for the open champion- shin at St. Louis, the "name" frolfers of the Fryre nre turning up Ihoir shots for the National Intercollegiate Tournament at Ann Arbor, Mich., ten days from now. . . Tho intercollegiate tourney has helped to produce four national amateur champions, one open champ nnd two British amateur winners. . . . there's jio telling who'll come out on top of the college heap this year, but you can tab such players as Charles "Babe" Lincl of Denver, runner-up to Walker Cupper George Hamer last spring; Charley Cop of Oklahoma, Bill Campbell of Princeton, Ed Hopkins and Hugh Dahlberg of Texas, Ed Schalon of Michigan, Bob Rosburg of Stanford, Lou Stafford of Orc- p,on and Joe Moore and Jinunie Wittenberg of Louisiana State are •golfers who'll be heard from in the not-too-distant future. POP VS POPOFF As soon as Harry Walker was traded from the Cards to the Plu'l- lics he began hitting like a house afire and the next time they met Card manager Eddie Dyer asked how come. . . "Why didn't you hit that way for me?" demanded Eddie. "Didn't I always, treat you like a son?" . . Walker replied: "Maybe that was tho trouble. You treat all players like sons while Ben Chapman is always hauling us over the coals." OPEX AND SHUT Word trickling back from St. Louis is that the current open golf championship likely v/111 be the slowest on record. . . the course has eight blind holes and most of the players have to walk ahead and look over the situation on each one. . . Ralph Cruldahl, whose same went sour after he won the 1937 and 1938 titles, thinks ho may come back this year. . . If he's in the groove, do you suppose U. S. G. A. officials will put him on a machine and measure him for width? Farmers of the United States use less than two-thirds as much labor per unit of product as they did In 1930.
