Rogers Hornsby has the old fellow ready to wrap up his whiskers, toss away his .'scythe and give up. The sage of St. Louis stayed on the bench for all but two games last year'and Pop figured the Rajah, at 40 and with 22 years in the big-time back of him, was all washed up. So; '-Hornsby-stepped up to. the plate yesterday, banged out a homer and "• two .singles as his Brownies opened their 1937 baseball wars with a 15-10 clouting conquest of the highly regarded Chicago White Sox. . Trie one victory didn't change the status .of the Browns in this year's American league race. They held the day's spotlight, largely because all the other clubs in both leagues were rained out, ..but they remain 100 i;o 1 shots in any bopk, strictly because the Brownie pitching staff is anything but that. But Hornsby is still there when the chips are down. Maybe it was because he's getting ready to celebrate his forty-first birthday next Tuesday. In addition to his batwork he played an errorless nine innings at second base, but it was the big stick Jt)e...wlolded > .and the definite evidence that he's still the shrewdest trader In the business that stole the show. In his Browns' lineup were Shortstop Billy Knickerbocker, Outfielder Joe Vosmlk and Pitcher Oral Hildebrand, obtained from the Cleveland Indians this winter in exchange for Lyn Lary, Jule Solters and Ivy Paul Andrews. Knickerbocker led the way with two doubles and a pair of singles, driving in four runs. Hilde- brand, although giving up 17 hits, went the route and contributed a two-run double to the 22-hit barrage. Hornsby, who trails only Cobb, Ruth and Gehrig in the number of times his name appears in the record books, boosted several of his marks yesterday. His appearance was his 2,240th game and put him in'the 23-year class;'.'tying Rabbit Maranville and trailing only Eddie Collins, Rod Wallace and Ty Cobb. His homer was his 302nd. He boosted his runs batted in total to 1,599, his extra-base hits to ' 1,008, his total bases to 4,695, and his hits to 2,912. And his three-for-five certainly did not harm his .359 lifetime batting average. Both leagues settle down to the grind again today, with an eight- game schedule. Harvesters Will Compete In Regional Meet On Saturday Several Harvester track and field stars will go to Canyon Saturday where they will compete in the Regional finals for the right to go to the state meet in Austin. Coaches Odus Mitchell and J. C. Prejean were still undecided after a workout yesterday afternoon as to which boys would make the trip. Pampa took second place in the District 2 meet here last week, losing out to Wheeler. Albert Ayer, captain of the Pampa team and the only letterman back this season, was second high in individual scoring with 11 M points. A check of time in other districts reveal that Lubbock's District 3 has the inside track with Pampa and Amarillo districts about even. Records from Childress are not available, '-; Ford of Wheeler is expected to give other districts a tough battle in field ^events. Pl^ce winners in four districts are eligible to take part in Saturday's touriia.ment at Canyon. Winners there will be eligible to participate in the state final tourney next week at the University of Texas, Austin. Unavailable is the summary of District 4's tourney two weeks ago at Childress. However, here's the way the marks compare in District 1, 2 and 3.

FORMERS' WOULD LIKE TO PLAY ON U. S. RYDER TEAM NEW YORK, April 22 (AP) — Since only an accident of birth bars him from a place on the United States Ryder cup golf team, burly, hardswinging Jimmy Thompson would like to see something done about it. The blond bomber with the wrestler's shoulders and Hollywood profile sat in a hotel coffee shop today, gaaing at a stray cigarette ash that drifted down his cream- diluted Java. He chased the ash with a spoon, then said: "After all, except for the fact that we were born in Scotland, Harry Cooper and I are Americans. We came over on the same boat in 1921, when I was 12 and he was 15. We learned our golf here, we're American citizens, we ply our trade here. "Naturally, we'd like to try our skill—and that 'we' includes older foreign-born American pros like Tommy Armour, Bobby Cruickshank, Willie MacFarlane, Willie Hunter, Mac Smith and Phil Perkins—against the home-breds. But we can't play with 'em on the American team, and we can't play against 'em on 'the British side. The obvious solution, Jimmy holds, is to stake a team match Between the two divisions of Amer\CW professiQn,als, Approval snd. assistance would have to be given by the P. G. A. and the U. S. G. A. have to be staged soon. EVANSTON, 111., April 22 (AP) —Lynn Waldorf could do some advance mourning over what may happen to Northwestern in next fall's football wars, but he isn't looking for sympathy yet. He shuffled an odd assortment into a winning hand last year, and won't believe things are as tough as they seem. In. the shuffling process this year Frank Young of Ponca City, Okla., a freshman fullback, and John Goldak of St. Louis, yearling guard, have become leading candidates for the center job. Joe Hamrick of Greenville, Tex., a guard last year, looks pretty good at tackle. Jack Major, somewhat of a disappointment at halfback last fall, appears to have fpun4 himse)f at fullback. "I'm going to keep on .experimenting," Waldorf finished, ."but I can concentrate on those four positions," '-•''"'. (By The Aasoclntcil Press.) WHERE *HEY PLAY TODAY. Dallas at Oklahoma City (night). Beaumont at .Houston (night). Fort Worth at Tulsa. San Antonio at Galveston (night) The first division clubs had a firmer hold on their Texas league perches todfty. Beaumont, Tulsa, Houston and Fort Worth, leading the circuit In that order, laid to with their bats yesterday to batter their second division opponents into defeat. The champion Tulsa Oilers dynamited four Dallas pitchers for 19 hits and a 13-to-4 win over the team which paced the league most of last season. Stan Schino showed the way with three doubles and a single for Tulsa, while errors by Connors, Houska and Pavollc added to the discomfiture of the Steers. Max Thothas pitched for Tulsa, the Steers getting 11 hits. Fort Worth proved the power to its bats with a 12-hit assault on Oklahoma City. Chick Autrey doubled with the bags loaded In the fifth to drive in three Fort Worth runs. Two more runs followed when Shelley tripled scoring Autrey and then scoring himself on a wild throw to home. The score was 9 to 2. Jackie Reid held the Indians to six hits. Galveston bedded d o.w n more snugly in the cellar after swinging futilely at the four-hit pitching of John Grodzickl. The Buffs meanwhile were demonstrating how eight hits could be Converted into 11 runs. Three Galveston hurlers were unable to stem the tide and the score against them was 11 to 0. The coltish Beaumont Exporters, breaking into Texas league competition by pacing it, again demonstrated their new-found powers with a 6-to-4 win over the San Antonio Missions. Every Beaumont batter got a hit, falllhg on the offerings of Liedhardt and Sams to quickly overhaul a '4-p San Antonio lead. Ehrensberger ' allowed six hits. Drake ftelays to Begin Tomorrow DES MOINES, la., April 22 (IP)— Track and field stars from all parts of the country moved Into Des Moines today for the opening of the twenty-eighth "annual Drake relays tomorrow. Some 2,000 University, College and high school competitors will be here. One hundred and eighty four schools, second largest entry list on -record, are entered in the midwest's greatest track carnival. Sun-bronzed young men from California and Texas were among the first to get the "feel" of the Drake cinders. The University of Texas' crack sprinters, Whittier College's relay team, and'Fresno State College entries were among the squads working out. Archie San Romani, who breezed jy Glenn Cunningham at the Kansas relays last week, will go after a new world mark for the mile and j half against the Rideout twins, Wayne and plairie. Six athletes who competed In the 1936 Olympics will be here. They are Sam Francis of Nebraska, Mack Robnson of Pasadena. Junior college, Al;on Terry of Hardin-Simmons, Lee Orr of Washington State. Harold Oale of the Oklahoma Baptists and San Romani. OF TEST NEW YORK, April 22 (AP)—Al- ;hough decisively beaten in his ;hree-year old debut, E. R. Bradey's Brooklyn 'has not lost caste where the Kentucky derby is concerned. The highly regarded son of Blue Larkspur, rated Bradley's No, 1 candidate for the May 8 renewal of the turf classic, finished third, behind his stablevnftte, Billionaire, and Edward W. Duffy's Grey Gold, in a mile and a sixteenth test at Keeneland Park yesterday. Frank Shannon, layer of future oook odds, dropped the Bradley ace only a notch, however, quoting him at 8 to 1, as compared to 7 to 1 against Mrs..Ethel V. Mars' Heaping Reward, ,and 9 to 1 against the favorite, J. .H. Louchheim's Pom- poon. The Neyv York bookmaker lost no time, however, in slashing Grey Gold, also running for the first time this year, from 200 to 1 to 40 to 1. Although Billionaire was closest to Grey Gold at the finish, he remained at 20 to 1, Both Bllliohaire and Brooklyn cept within staking distance of the nead of the stretch, but failed in ;he final drive, as Grey Gold, which [ailed to wlp, a race in 14 starts ast year, went on to finish two lengths in front, of Billionaire. •*• Tomorjfpw Will Be Softball League Halfway Point in Games tomorrow afternoon in the Pampa Softball ^association prelhn- nary- schedule.

Lois Terry Is the ace of the hurling corp and the nemesis of boys', mens' and womens' teams. I Silver-haired Lois Terry, 'no-hit pitcher and home-run swatter, is without a doubt the most colorful j soft-ball player in this new sport which has taken the country by storm. Born in Los Angeles. California, in 1917, Lois "The Great," the beau- > tiful soft ball pitcher, attended Manchester school and Washington high school, graduating in 1934. The Blonde Terror, as she is called, excelled in badminton, basketball, tennis, swimming ping-pong, hockey and soft ball. Soft ball, which she has been playing for three years, is her favorite sport, next to tennis. Sports editors have written more copy about Lois Terry than many a star in other fields of sports, and deservedly so, for she has a record of having won 94 out of a hundred games she pitched in 1935 and 1936,' and has the enviable record of a 525 batting .average. She has been photograped with the leading motion picture stars in Hollywood and appeared with Al Jolson on his nation-wide radio program. Pitching for the Hollywood girls' all-star soft ball, club, Lois Terry' is touring the country with the team, which will play the leading soft ball girls' teams this summer. Betty Compson, popular motion picture star, is sponsoring and making a personal appearance tour of the country with the soft ball players and will present the opposing team with a beautiful gold trophy autographed by the motion picture celebrities, Arline Judge and John Boles. NEW YORK, April 21 (AP)— Convinced that open warfare is not getting him anywhere. Charley (The Red) Ruffing j s willing to arbitrate his baseball holdout dispute, but the New York Yankees apparently aren't having any of it. Red says he is willing to come down in his salary demands for 1937 from $16,000 to $15,000, if the Yanks will come up a like amount in their offer of $15,000 flat. But the world's champions announced they aren't giving an inch. Ruffing made his gesture at his home in Chicago last night. In New York, Club Secretary Ed Barrow pointed out that Charley had turned down the $15,000 offer several weeks ago, and that, technically, even that amount was no longer open. Manager Joe McCarthy t said the "club has made its last; TIE RACKS NEED SPRING CLEANING, TOO Now is a good time to toss out your worn-out ties and replace them with our smart new Arrows.
