One in uniform for the wiU be Pitcher Foy Haddock who used to do some mighty effective hurling for Phillips of fiojfger and Amarlllo. Haddock was I- discovered working at a gasoline -plftnt south of Pampa. He had been pitching practice ball for several^days and looked in good shape he reported for practice yesterday. Grays will field a team of stars headed by an exceptionally strong pitching staff. Ray Brown Is the : ace. He is also an outfielder and 'is used in that position because of. his terrific hitting. Last fall Broym went to Porto Rico where he pjayed winter ball and this spring he defeated the Cincinnati Reds twplgaines. He won 22 games last season in 26 starts. Torn, Packer, big righthander, is the • speedball artist of the team. Kds^M Walker, a youngster picked up W$t(,year, has turned out to 'be. a sensation. He is a portsider. Arnold Whiie,. Joseph Strong, Louis Dula Mid-< Qeorge Walker round out the b}g hurling" corps. Walker was picked up, .after the Denver tournament list; summer. Th>" ; Qray lineup, starting with . Vic Harris, is one. of the A. few facts about the team are revealed here: "Vic Harris, manager, plays left He, has been with the club for 11 years.. He throws right, bats left.* Harris is one of the. great all' time colored players.. Late in 1936f,he managed the club in Porto Rica,. winning the pennant and later defeated the Cincinnati Reds in a series! on their spring training trip. ' Hey refused to take a club to the islands this year in order to devote all othis time to the Grays. 'Jerry Benjamin plays center field. He throws right, and bats from ejthief side. A natural hitter, a good fly chaser, a great base runner; is also;- considered the second fastest man, in the Negro National league. His .home is in Birmingham, Ala. Neal Robinson, right field, bats and-j throws righthanded. He has an excellent throwing arm, is a dependable, hitter and very fast. He plays .basketball in the winter which Sjeps him in shape. His home is Grarid Rapids, Mich. Tfie star of the infield is Walter (Buck) Leonard. He plays first base,'- He throws and bats from the port side.- The scribes of the Colored weeklies .name him as the peer of firs^baseman in the Negro National league,' Iri 1936, he was voted the greatest player- ever to come to Porto Rico. Thi?, spring he played in Havana, Cuba. Buck is a fine fielder, a real slugger and knows the game. The fans, get a real kick out of watching him play his position in the smooth w.ay.he does. He hails from Rocky Mount, N. c. At-, shortstop we have Norman "Jelly" Jackson. At second, Matthew,. "Lick" Carlisle'. This combi- natifln gives the Grays the fastest double play artists in the loop. Both men, are small of stature, but fast anoV;have good throwing arms. At;. third is Judy Jphnson, rated as. the best third baseman in the last;. ten years. Judy formerly was with the' Crawfords.

No admission will be made at either session. More than 200 boys are expected to compete in the 14 events. The Pampa Harvesters will be defending champions. The title will be in a precarious situation tomorrow because of lack of material and practice. Coaches Odus Mitchell and J. C. Prejean will be shy on dash and 'distance men, only one entry being in the three dash events and one or two in the distance races. Strong teams are expected from every county in the district.

Other circles (perhaps not so well informed) think the bout will be transferred to New York with Max Schmeling meeting the winner in the fall—and liking it. . . The smart boys say Madison Square Garden isn't nearly so interested in clinching a Braddock- Schmelling go, as it is in proving in court that a contract is a contract . . . This done, the eighth avenue crowd will be in a position to do some trading—and get the jest of it ... At any rate, June 22 is just about two months away and so far little has been done about promoting a Chicago fight. .. So write your own ticket. Intimates tell you the real reason Tony Canzoneri doesn't retire s that he is flat. . . All his dough is tied up in that big ranch in Marlboro, N. Y., and he needs ready cash. . .

Tulsa at Oklahoma City (day). Houston at San Antonio (day). Galveston at Beaumont (day). Dallas at Fort Worth (night). Training CampJNews (By The Associated Press) BROOKLYN—With outfielder Joe DiMagglo under the surgeon's knife for a tonsillectpmy, which may cure his sore arm, the Yanks started their annual spring series with the Brooklyn Dodgers today. CHARLOTTE,-. N. C.—Jimmy Ripple, reserve outfielder of the New York Giants, has left for New York. Ripple has been troubled with a stomach disorder and will rest until opening day. PORTSMOUTH, O. — Completing their spring exhibition schedule after a more or less gloomy' training season, the St. Louis Cardinals went into action today against the Portsmouth team of the middle Atlantic league. The Cards are due tomorrow morning in St. Louis to meet the Browns in games Saturday and Sunday. (By The Associated Press) Today's games: Dallas at Fort Worth (night). Tulsa at Oklahoma City. Houston, at San Antonio. Galveston at Beaumont. There were three baseball games in the Texas league yesterday. A fourth contest involving Dallas and Fort Worth probably, deserves some other classification. The eardrums of. the Cowtown Cats must still be. vibrating to the" unpleasant thunder Dallas batsmen provided at explosive intervals in a two hour arid 33 minute game —during which the Steers scored 2b:runs, 12 : of them in one inning, and got 17 hits. In the big Steer fifth inning the first .ten men at bat not only got on base' but scored. Another note in .the hysterical fray, was the performance of young Sammy Pavloic, Steer left fielder, who hit two homers, a single and drove in seven runs. • The Cats, incidentally, were not timlc^ at: bat, getting 16 hits for eight runs. Klaerner and Parker, pitched for Dallas, while four Fort Worth hurlers took their turns before the firing squad. At Tulsa the Oilers again found a' one-run margin to their, liking, etting back Oklahoma City 3 to 2. They, won the previous night 8 to Houston evene.d things up with San Antonio, 3 to 1. The Missions won the opener Wednesday. The Galveston Buccaneers also etaliated for the shutout they re- eived opening day, lustily slamming the ball ' for 14 hits and a i-to-3 victory over Beaumont.] MAY BEGIN TRAINING CHICAGO, April 16 (IP)— The possibility appeared today that Heavyweight Champion James J. Braddock and challenger Joe Louis may begin raining here within a week for their scheduled . title bout June 22 at "lomiskey Park; Chairman Joe Triner of the Illinois Athletic commission said Braddock informed him of dissatisfaction with weather conditions it the Ogren estate near Stone e, Wis., complaining he has not >een able to do road work at the north woods camp. WASHINGTON — Owner Clark Griffith of the Senators, who has been watching his pitching department apprehensively, professes no interest in Red Ruffing, Yankee holdout hurler. KANSAS CITY, Mo.—The Pittsburgh Pirate pitching staff was strengthened by the addition of Joe Bowman, formerly of the Philadelphia Nationals. President Bill Benswanger announced that Earl Browne, hard-hitting first baseman, had -been traded for Bowman who won nine and lost two last season. BOSTON, Mass. — Minus Jimmy Foxx and Lefty.Grove, the Boston Red Sox went to Worcester today to. meet Holy Cross in their. first New England game .of the season, a •warm-up for the city series with the Bees, opening in Boston tomorrow. CHARLOTTE, N.. C.—The Cleveland Indians sent Tom Drake, prbm- lsing..young, right, hander r back to the. New Orleans farm club today for further seasoning. CHARLESTOI^aSWftiVa.—General Manager Warren Giles, sa}d today .the Cincinnati Reds may lose Jack. Roth- brock, outfielder, because. Simmy Byrd failed to report to the Rochester club. Rothrock was traded to the Reds last fall for Byrd in a straight player deal. CHARLESTON,,W, Va,—The Tig- er/j came here today for another game with the Cincinnati Reds.

DETROIT, April 16. ffi — The amazing Red Wings of Detroit entered hockey's hall of fame today— the only American teaiw ever tc win the National league championship and the Stanley cup two successive years. The stick wizardry of big Marty Barry, who scored two goals and an assist, and the phenomenal net- minding of Rookie Early Robertson, who shut out the aggressive, dangerout New York Rangers for the second time, 30 to 0 stood out. Decathlon Men HoldjSpotlight LAWRENCE, Kas., April 18 WV- The .decathlon men, performing where Glenn Morris and Jim Bausch rose toward fame, offered the prelude today for, a big show crowded with star performers—the 15th annual Kansas relays. Today was glven;over to comparative unknowns. Tomorrow's cue is for such names as Glenn Cunningham, Archie San Romanl, Sam Francis and Alton Terry. Field event marks loom in particular danger tomorrow. Francis, Nebraska's all-around star and an .Olympic sh'otputter, has bettered the meet record of 51 feet 31-8 Inches consistently. Jack Vickrey of Texas looms as a threat to the high jump record of 6 feet 6 3-16 inches, and Alton Terry of Hardin-Simmons can better the meet javelin mark of 206 feet 6 1-i inches almost at will. ^ Major Leagues Bid For Tommy Henrich MASSILLON, Ohio, April 16 (£•)— From an easy chair Tommy Henrich cooly conducted an auction with anxious; major league clubs today to the determine which will bid mdst for a young outfielder named Tommy Henrich. "The best offer wins," he remarked—and Manager Bill Terry.of the New York Giants has said., he'd pay $20,000 for Henrich's contract. "Money isn't everything," interposed his gray-haired mother, Mrs. Edward Henrich. "Well, it helps a lot," observed Tommy's 17-year-old brother, who has dreams of following in his brother's footsteps. And Tommy Henrich, the 21-year- old Massillon marvel who "got a break" when Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis declared him a free agent, merely flashed a big smile and nodded his head sagely. Henrich. said he had no idea which club would bid highest. Farr Gets American Offers After Upsetting Max Baer LONDON, April 16. (IF) — The British Isies were pretty 1 excited today about Tommy Farr, the 23- year-old Welsh walloper who knocked all thoughts of a comeback out of Max Baer's head. Farr struck a blow for British boxing before a swanky crowd of 14,000 at Herrlngay arena last night by trimming Playboy Maxle who was perfectly fit, but, as always, couldn't box a lick. The two handed thrashing he administered brought a thrill to the land of hope and glory that it hasn't experienced for many a day. Late last night, as cabled offers from American arriving today, with good lungs still was singing promoters., began every Welshman "Land of Father," and Englishmen were accosting perfect strangers to ask if they had heard the news. By stepping in and slapping Baer out of shape to win a lop-sided 12- round decision, young Farr climaxed, a ring career that begah when he gave' up the idea of remaining a kitchen hand In his native Tony- pandl; Wales. At the same time, if you take Baer's word for it, the curly haired Californian is convinced he's all washed up in the punching business. Never before had Parr been known as any thing: but a; plodder. England's own experts called him a "good second rater," even a'fter he won the British heavyweight title from South African Ben Fbord a couple of months ago. Before last night's battle, they predicted the.' ferocious B,aer-man would knock his block 'off , and made Maxie a 3 to 1 shot. They had much to answer for today. Not only was Farr able to stay out of the way of Maxie's murderous right — the same right that ; knocked, off,, such high raters as jvlax Schmellnjj- and l*riino Ca'f- nera^— but. he' proved at the. same time' that he's a pretty fall' country boxer. The more Maxie snorted and tried to belt' him out 'of the ring, the harder Tommy fought back; It was Baer who had to break ground, particularly after Farr ripped open the American's right eyebrow, with his top weapon, a slashing left hook, in the first round,! Within , a few minutes, after the victory, 'he had an Offer from far off Pittsburgh for $10,000 for a fight there with John Henry Le\?is, the world's light heavyweight champion. He doesn't want that, however. He is after a, fight, here In England with Max Schmeling, All Baer asked was to go back to his ranch in California. /P)— summer weather assured a dry rack tomorrow for the fifth running of the $15,000 Texas Derby, final test for a group of Kentucky Derby candidates topped, by the future rook favorite, the Milky Way Farms' Reaping Reward. The great 3-year-old son of Sickle, heavily backed in winter wagering^ was the favorite of a field of ten, including two of his Illustrious stablemates, .Military and Mars Shield. Ranked almost equal with Reaping Reward was Heelfly, the Three D's stock farm speedster who amazed a collection of dockers with his final workout of 1:38 2/5 for the mile—Worked under restraint and with a Jockey holding down the pride of Texas! Trainer Bob McOarvey sent Reaping Reward over a 1:53 workout for nine furlongs and announced the ace of the Milky Way stable to be in perfect trim for the Texas and Kentucky Derbies. Two fillies, Mars Shield and Try- anhurry of the J. T. Withers 111 stable, were considered likely starters over the mile and an eighth route. Navanod, winner of the Wag- ;oner Memorial Handicap, set a ;rack record at 1.50 3/5 in the event last fall. Military, a superb mudder, may lot run over the hard track, Trainer McGarvey said. Other entries included the Bed- 'ord Stock Farm's Robert L., winner over Heelfly and Mars Shield ast Saturday; Mrs. C, Gregory's Dead Olam; Mrs. Tom, Marshall's ?alan; W. C. Stroube's S\jn Pilot; Mrs. V. Wyse's entry of 'Eastport and Gallant Eagle. Police of Sacramento, Calif., are to be given an 8-week course in public speaking, because Commissioner R. E. Mlttelstaedt believes policemen' should fce qualified to meet lic as well as to catch criminals. SCBLITZ in "STEINIES" A Treat in Old-Time Taste IRE AT yourself today to Schlitz in "Steinie?
