TO SEE mi f IT PAJVIPA TEAM'S LINEUP ANNOUNCED BY JAYCEES GIRLS PLAY TOMORROW e AGE aiA FRIDAY EVENING, APRIL 23, 1937. -Junior chamber of commerce officials are wondering if Road Runner park will accommodate the crowd expected to be present when Miss Betty Compson throws the first ball of the game between her Hollywood beauties and the Jaycees men's softball teams Saturday night. Game time will be 9 o'clock but fans will be on hand early to see the Pampa Sooners and the Phillips teams clash in a league game beginning at 8 o'clock. Admission to the two games will be 40 cents. Miss Compson will introduce to Pampa softball fans, not only a crack ball club but a team of beautiful girls who have been in pictures and on the radio. The girls have been unable to secure competition with girls' teams and have had to meet good men's teams on the trip over the country. Their record of wins far exceeds losses. The Jaycee team that will meet the Hollywood stars will be named following a practice tonight at 6 o'clock on the diamond west of Harvester field. "Heinle" Hindman will, be In charge of the Jaycees for the game. • His lineup will probably be selected from himself and Castleberry for first, Hann and Hale for second, Hickman and Harris for shortstop, Weatherred at third, Patterson, Isley, . Brown, Kennedy, and several others for outfield duty, Barnett and Downs for catchers, with Patrick on the mound. (The Hollywood lasses will have Lois Terry, Tess Dodenhoff, and Vic Self ready for mound duty with probably the "blond terror" getting the call. Gladys Hanson will be behind the plate. On first will be Ruth Lee. Then around the diamond, Jo La Horgue on second, Al- lehe Berry at short, Evelyn Hall on third, Cordius Jackson -in left, Audrey. Moreland in center, Babe McDonald in right, with Gladys Jackson, utility. Al Berry, shortstop, has been making, men look sick at the position. Although only weighing 121 pounds, she packs a throw and is one of the fastest girls in the sport. She played a lead part in the motion picture, "Slide, Nellie, Slide." Evelyn Hall is another exceptional athlete. She held the Southern California tennis championship for one year and also took swimming honors in her native state. Still another star is Tess Dodenhoff. She is the "windmill pitcher" of California, making a full circle of her arm before delivering the ball. She has appeared on the screen in Warner brothers, R. K. O., and Radio Pictures. Jaycees are in for plenty of trouble Saturday night, it is believed. Sports Roundup BY EDDIE BRIETZ.

House Gang Gels Tough With Reds In 14-11 Brawl BY SID FEDER, Associated Press Sports Writer. No matter how many others shout for the honors, there's still only one Gas House Gang. Charley Dressen's roughhouse Reds from Cincinnati were supposed to muscle in on the Cardinals' exclusive territory this year, but so far, they've been little better than rookies at the game of rough, tough and nasty. Other clubs also hollered that they'd be infringing on the Cards' copyright, but they're going to have a tough time proving it. The No. 1 Gas House Gangster, Dizzy Dean, polished off the Cincinnati clouters In his usual style in Tuesday's opener. Yesterday, however, Dizzy was taking a rest, so the Reds decided they'd get tough. When the smoke of a nice quiet knock-down, drag-out brawl had finished, the Cards were still in the saddle. Final score: St. Louis 14, Cincinnati 11. The hitting hurricane, put on at the expense of eight pitchers who gave up 28 safe blows, featured the day's big league program curtailed again by rain. Only two other games got by old Jupe Pluvius, the Pirates and their new left-hander, Dutch Brandt, making it two in a row over the Chicago Cubs, 4-2, and the Chicago White Sox reversing their Wednesday walloping by Louis Browns 6-1. taking the St. In that Cincinnati slugging circus, pitchers generally lasted less time that it takes to say "back to the showers." Each side had a run by the time the second inning wound up, with Johnny Mlze's homer doing the trick for the Cards. In the third, Gas House Gang No. 1 landed on Paul Derringer and Don Brennan for a half dozen tallies. Back came Gas House Gang No. 2 with a tremendous nine-run splurge in the fourth. That was the cue for the Cards to roll up their sleeves, and go to the wars. They bombarded Al Holllngsworth and Gene Schott for four more in the sixth, and finished off with three in the eighth. At Chicago, the Pirates uncovered ISA 13 TO 10 TO TAKE SECOND PLACE Uly The Associated Press.) WHERE THEY PLAY TODAY San Antonio at Galveston (night). Beaumont at Houston (night).

Homer Peel's clawing Fort Worth Panthers took a long look at new scenery today — from the dizzy heights of second place In the Texas league's current chase. It has been a long time since the Cats have been that high but the mighty punch they imparted to their bats yesterday indicated their recent climb may be brief spring fancy. more than a Eighteen hits rolled off the Panther bats as four Tulsa pitchers tolled in the summer sun. Tulsa also worked hard at the plate, getting seven hits, but Fort Worth had the edge, 13 to 10, Three Cat pitchers were used. . Houston was forced out of its second-position berth in losing a close one to the league-leading Beaumont club, 9 to 8. A finishing spurt topped with two homers pulled the Shippers past a Buff lead. Buddy Hancken and Dynamite Dunn were the long hitters. the left-hander that many believe may bring a pennant to the Smoky City. For the last few- years, .a portsider has been the Bucs' crying need. Brandt, obtained from Brooklyn during the winter, made his debut in the role against Chicago, and, although touched for ten hits, he fanned eight and was tight as a drum with men on the bags. Monte Stratton, who saw little service with the White Sox last year, muffled the Browns' bats with five hits in his first start for Chicago's American leaguers.
