Wonther has forced a near record number of postponements but big leapuc attendance is running almost even with last year's record figures, and with the prospect of a neck, and m-ck race right down to the wire in both leagues, a new mark may well be set. In 194G, a total of 18,012.704 fans paid (o wp.tch major ItHpue baseball.

The Baptists were unable to set a man past first due to stingy Methodist pitching and an air-tight de- dense but finally brokr through in the last two frames to score five safe plate crossings. Exceedingly heavy scoring featured both girls games. The First Methodist Seniors and the First Christian Juniors each raced across 44 runs to overwhelm the Junior and Senior Central Baptist Girls by lopsided "margins.

The Longhom League's two leaders — Big Spring and Midland — found lesser lights more than they could handle last night, each going down in defeat. But they still had a tremendous margin over second place Sweetwater, nine and one-half games. Stormy Davis' ninth inning home run gave Ballinger a 9-8 decision over Big Spring and Vernon swamped Midland, 8-3 on 13 hits. In the loop's other tilt, Bob Cpw- sar and Ronald Murphy hit fifth inning home runs to give Sweetwater a 6-4 victory over Odessa. In 1908 an automobile tire cost around $35 and lasted 2000 miles.

NATIONAL LEAGUE Yesterday's Results Brooklyn 2, Chicago 1. St.. Ijouis 4, Philadelphia .1. By the Associated Pr^ss . One bad throw ana the Texas league had its third 19-inhing tilt today. s . Fort Worth won the marathon contest over Houston, 5-4. when Moe Santamauro scampered home a half hour after midnight. . It was the third 19-inning game listed in the Texas League record book, but the highest score of the three. Oklahoma City and Galves- ttm staged a 3-2 contest in 1910, and Cleburne and Fort Worth went 19 scoreless innings in 1.908. Catcher Joe Niedson tried to catch Santamauro off third after the Port Worth centerfielder had tripled. His peg to Tom Glaviano was high and to the right. The only other two games scheduled yesterday were close a-ffairs. Dalln,s squeezed by San Antonio. 4-3, and Tulsa took a ten-inning affair from Beaumont on the same score. Houston—which only a few days ago went 18 scorless innings with Shreveport—came from behind a four-run Fort Worth lead to tie the score in the eighth. The host nine had tallied three times in the second, one in the fifth. Houston picked up two in the sixth, two more in the eighth. . Clarence Podbielan — the Cats' fourth pitcher—was the winning pitcher, and Jack Creel—Houston's fourth hurler—the loser. The defeat cut Houston's lead to four games over the idle Shreveport Sports, while Fort Worth stayed one percentage point ahead of Dallas in third place. Pinch hitter Al Carr's triple in the seventh inning with the bases loaded gave Dallas its victory over San Antonio, which had fashioned t\vo runs in the second- and another o Pete Lewis' home run in the third. Burton Barkelew walked pinch hitter Ted Pawelek with the bases loaded to push over Tulsa's winning run, marking the third straight game the two teams needed extra Innings. And Tulsa won all three. plus one more for u clean sweep the four-game series. Elwood Orantham accounted for one of Tulsa's runs with a homer in the sixth. Everybody changes around today, with a dbubleheader coming up at, Tulsa between the Oilers and Shreveporfc. In other games, Houston moves over to Dallas. San Antonio switches to Fort Worth and Beaumont invades Oklahoma City.

Grid Season's Leahy Already 'Views With Alarm' fty JfcfcRlr ttSKA Al> ttewsfeatnrcs SOUTH BENT», Ind. — Notre Dame's Fighting Irish, who won the mythical national football championship last fall, should be just as tough next season even though Coach Prank Leahy is viewing with typical alarm his 1947 nine-game schedule. As the Irish varsity closed, a six- week spring training grind With a 26-13 victory over the "Old Timers," Leahy appeared quite unhappy. "We didn't look very snappy," was his pessimistic comment. "No spark or verve." But some 10,000 fans who viewed the off-season finale at Notre Dame Stadium saw a traditional Trteh squad—aggressive, resourceful and relentless—grind over opposition of big league calibre. The Old Timers had such performers as Elmer Angsman, star halfback of the National Foot- Jiall League's Chicago Cardinals; .Tim Mcllo, 1946 regular fullback who has signed with the Bosten. Yankees; and halfback Gerry Cowhigr, ear-marked for the Los Angeles Rams. Yet the varsity, getting along without such hold-overs as All* America tackle George Connor, halfbacks Ernie Zaleski. Bill Gompers and Floyd Simmons, and bruising tackle Ziggy Czarobski (who performed for the Old Timers), outgained their rugged rivals in almost every department and scored three touchdowns before the Old Timers could count orte. All-American quarterback Johnny Lujack passed to one touchdtwn. So did his understudy, Frank Tri- pucka. Halfback Larry Coutre streaked 75 yards Tor a touchdown. Halfback Terry Brennan accounted for the fourth versity touchdown. And then there was Johnny Panelli, who battered the Old Timer line with enough power to assure Leahy of an excellent replacement. for Mello at fullback. Add halfback Emll SHUo, fullback Corry . Clatt, halfback Mike Swfstowicz and quarterback George Rattcrmun, all of who are expected back next fall, and it isn't hard to predict thai the Irish will lie riding high ami hard again. There is a question whether 7,iil<'slii, who underwent a knee operation after the Tulanc game last fall, will be ready for regular service. But Leahy still may uncover a spot runner. It may be Coutre, or Swistowicz, or little Coy McGce, who dazzled Southern California in,the 1940 finale, or even Lujack, With Tripucka and possibly Rat- • We Hx flats. • 24-hour service. • We pick up flats. McWILLIAMS SERVICE STATION 424 S. Cuyler Phone 31 tfefman and Pete Ashbaugh to handle the signal-calling, Lujack may get a try as a ball-carrier. He operated briefly at fullback against the Old Timers and ran a kickoff back 47 yards, being dragged down from behind. The Irish next fall face Pittsburgh, Purdue. Nebraska, Iowa. Navy, Army, Northwestern, Tulane and Southern California. The big battle is the Nov. 8 meeting with Army at South Bend. Officials of the two schools have ordered a temporary suspension of the traditional rivalry after the 1947 clash because, they said, the big game was getting beyond control of both institutions. After two plasterings by the Black Knights of the Hudson in 1944 and 1945, the Irish emerged with a blistering scoreless tie at New York last season. Both schools will be whittled to razor sharpness for the "finale." Leahy has already worked up a good-sized worry over the Cadet invasion, "//my'has a better line this year than last," he fretted, "And it has a fine backfield. It is certain to come to South Bend undefeated on Nov. 8." Frank also -predicts trouble from Navy, Iowa and Southern California.
