Dempscy. blushing nnd obviously flustered at the booming chorus, \vr.s presented by Al Jolson. Jolson announced that it was Jack's 37th birthday. Dempscy retorted that he was only 32.

Babe Ruth Is Ordered To Return to Hospital NKW YORK—</P>—Babe Ruth ii back in the hospital on the advice of his physicians for further treatment and "to take things easy for a few weeks." "I even get tired taking a walk around the living room," the Babe was quoted by friends as .saying as he entered the hospital yesterday. "I can't seem to gain any strength," he said, "so I guess I'll just get some rest here." WINNER—Charles Coe, 23-year- old Oklahoma university junior from Ai'tlmorc, Okla., holds his tiophy after wining Uic Trans- Mississippi fro'f i'ile in Wichita, •Kans. (NE:\' Tclcpholo). Pitchers Warren Spahn and Johnny Sain, Mr. Left and Mr. Right of the pen- pnnt-starved Boston Braves threatened today to eclipse the modern National League record number of victories hung up by two pitchers of the same club in one season. With 20 wins already in bag, Spahn and Sain, upon whom Braves followers are depending to bring them their first flag in 33 years, stand a fighting chance to better the mark of 52 garnered by Bucky Walters and Paul Derringer of the 1939 Cincinnati Reds. Walters won 27 and Derringer 25 hat pennant winning year. The modern Major League stand- rd is held by Hal Newhouser and •"ant (Dizzy) Trout of the 1944 Dc- roit Tigers. They copped 50 that 'c»;. Spahn. a 25-year-old sophomore rom Buffalo. N. Y.. nabbed his llth Humph against two defeats last light when he pitched the Braves o a 9-6 victory over the climbing Cardinals in St. Louis. He allowed only eight hits, but three of them were home runs to account for five St. Louis runs. In pitching his ninth complete ;amc of the campaign, Spahn tied !ils teammate Sain in that department. Only Ewell Blackwell (11) of the Reds and Harry Brechccn (10) of the Cards have gone the route more often. It was the lean left- hander's third win in four decision against the Rcclblrds and tied him with Blackwell for most wins in thi Majors. Sain, who got off to'a bclow-par start for him by breaking even in his first six decisions, has won his last, four games 10 boast a 9-4 won The ... WAY il LOOKS to Bob Bray Town Flans Welcome For Parents oi duads BAKER, Mont.—(/TV-This Southeastern Montana town is prcpor- in? a homecoming celebration for Mr. and Mrs. Edward Randash, parents of quadruplets, as soon as the mother nnd three survivinR babies can leave a Miles City hospital. Donna Mac Randash, smallest of J the quads, died Monday night. Baker and Miles City have been almost n.s excited as the Randash couple since the quads were born last Saturday. Residents have contributed several thousand dollars— including three $100 bills—for the Randash family. Electric ironers, washing machines, milk delivery for one year and 1 many other donations have been received by the Baker Raragcmnn and beauty operator. The Pa lion County Weekly Times in Baker had to wait until Thursday to report the story, but the newspaper went overboard then. Ib devoted its front page to pictures and stories of the quads and their parents. The main story started: "Just by doing- what comes naturally, Ed Randash of Baker lias put Baker and Miles City on the map." New buildings at Sydney, Australia, are limited to 150 feet in height. i-1 Victory Over Forl Worfh Cals (By Ths Associated Press) Shreveport and Port Worth ure batting second place in the Texas League around like a ping pong ll. i Shreveport traded places with Fovt Worth again last night, the third straight that the position has changed hands. And "Port Worth was getting uncomfortably close to fourth place Dallas. The Sports regained the runner- up spot with a 5-1 decision over Port Worth. Dallas continued to press forward by blanking Beaumont, 8-0. while the league-leading Houston Buffs bowed again to Oklahoma City, 7-8 In ten innings. Tnlsfv swept its scries with San Antonio, 13-7. Clarence Oann held Fort Worth ,o lour hits for his ninth victory of the year. The Sports pushed over ivvo runs in the sixth and three more in the seventh, The Cats picked up a run in the final inning. Al Rosen, the League's leading baiter, singled in the tenth inning and romped home With Oklahoma City's payoff run on Jess Newman's double.

In blanking the Beaumont Exporters Dallas figured in its fourth consecutive shutout game. Three of them have gone on the win side of the Rebels' ledger. An eight-run spree in the last of the third inning sank any hopes San Antonio had of stopping Tulsa. Thirteen Oiler batters went to the plate this inning and the slurge broke a 3-3 deadlock. The Missions collected four home runs—by Jimmy Grant, Pete Lewis, Tom Jordan and Bill Seinsoth. There -is a general switch in playing sites today. Dallas starts a nine-day road trip by stopping off .at Fort Worth. Oklahoma City moves over to Tulsa, and Shreveport drops down to San Antonio. The two South Texas nines—Houston and Beaumont get together at the latter's park. WINNtPEO—(NfiA)—Duck hunters can start nott oiling up their guns. This year's season should give them some of the .best hunting in recent years. Authority for this information is Bert W. Cartwright, Chief Naturalist for Ducks Unlimited, a non-profit, non-political organization of conservationists and sportsmen. Cartwright and his assistants have just finished an expensive survey of Canadian duck breeding grounds. They tralevel by air, boat, automobile, and, when nothing else would get them into the breeding grounds, by foot. They covered, in all, thousands of miles of waterfowl breeding acreages in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba in Canada, where most of the ducks fly for annual nesting. On the basis of this, Cartwright predicts that there is a fine hunting season ahead. He says as many, or more, ducks returned to the breeding grounds this year. Water conditions were excellent, and bigger and better than average broods can be expected. Recent heavy rains removed danger of droughts for the present, Cartwright found. Winter estimates oi duck prospects had been a little the balance .... I L At. •.)!...nfrlnn \ p fl ff% r. rtfM 1T T! pessimistic but the situation ia changed now.

ADMISSION 'I 00 Plus Tax If you have been noticing a short age of 11-to 16-year old boys thes days search the garages, tool shops, lumberyards, Culbc-rson Chevrolet Company or even the P?.mpa News and the chances arc that you'll find many»o[ the kids busily building or planning a Soap Box Derby Racer. Yesterday, we had opportunity to go out nnd look over thu won: being done, the racers being built, by several of the boys and, from all indications, (according to those who have .scon tha races for the past several. year. 1 ;') competition should be at its toughest this year. We said we had opportunity to .sec the boys at work and we believe it was just that. We, a.s many oth- .c-rs doubtless have, had forgotten the enthusiasm and seriousnes. which a boy can tackle a job. And, we had certainly forgotten the many abilities of a youngster. There arc, in our opinon, few pco pie. rabid hport, fans or just sane people, who wouldn't really get a lot of pleasure out of seeing these boyr, nt work and hearing the plans they have formulated for I heir racers, 7f the plans amaze you as they did us, you'll be more than a little embarrassed, when you find the detail the boy lv.\s gone into in planning hi-s racer, by how little you understand about the goal he's trying to attain, One youngster went in complete detail to us to relate the fashioning of what, he believes is the superior brake. Tha reason that he believes his brake is the best is simply due to the fact that it stops his racer quickly and, because of clever construction, there is a very Httle brake suii'acD exposure which would tend to offer air resistance and thereby slow down his car. The Pampa Soap Box Derby is without question one of the most beneficial youth projects here as are comparable Derby Races throughout the nation. The local running will be held July 20, and if this year's attendance is as it has been in I lie past, most of Pampa will be on hand to witness the race. And everybody will probably have a good time, but we are sure that most of you aro overlooking something you would also enjoy, if you fail to go out and see some of these boys build their racers. There is probably a boy in your neighborhood building one. AVe're willing to bet that you'll enjoy seeing his work and enthusiasm just as much as he'll be proud to have you come by and witness hit, handiwork. Braves to retain their one game, lead over the Brooklyn Dodgers in the torrid National League Pennant race. The Dodgers nipped the Pirates 4-2 in a night game at Pittsburgh. The New York Giants protected their third place hold against 'the Cubs by slugging the Bruins 11-0 in a day game in Chicago. The Rods edged up on the fifth place Cardinals by knocking off the Phi .Uidelphia Phils 4-2 in a night game at Cincinnati. In the only game; American League both "played at night, the Chicago White Sox made it 10 of 11 with Washington by blanking the Senators 3-0 and the St. Louis Browns clipped the Athletics in Philadelphia 12-3. A double by Frank McCormick with the bases loaded which cleaned the sacks in the ninth inning ac- iually provided the winning markers for the Braves. The Braves were enjoying a 5-3 edge up to then, but McCormick's blow highlighted a four run rally to give Boston a 9-3 lead. The Cards came back with three runs in their half to fall short. Stan Musial, Joe Medwick and Ervin Dusak clubber! the four-baggers for the Cards. Aided by Pec Wee Reese's eighth home run of the season with one en in the second, Brooklyn's Ralph 3ranca registered his ninth win igainst six reverses with a seven hit jcrformance against the cellar dwelling Pirates. Jackie Robinson stole home for the Brooks in the fifth.

And that's just what Jim Ferrier did on more ,han one occasion yesterday . . . vhen Nelson, who refereed the natch, dropped Into the press tent afterward—something incidentally he never did before his retirement —he was fairly popeyed over Jim's putting and chip shots . . . "In 21 years of golf I never saw anyone chip and putt like Ferrier did today." Nelson exclaimed . . and when Ferrier got off that "killer" shot out of a mess of trouble on the third hole yesterday afternoon. Bryon just gasped: "That was one hell of a shot." . . . after watching that amazing dip as Ferrier swings, you might call him the man who comes from down under and hits the ball the same way. SCOOPEROO A writer following the semi-final matches Monday thought he might overhear something special when he came upon Mr. and Mrs. Chick Harbert standing by a green during the heat of Chick's match with Vic Ghezzi semi-final "and do Platinum is found in iron meteorites, but in very small quantities.

Australian- chip and putt master from San Francisco, ruled as the match king of professional golf today after whipping home-bred Melvin (Chick) Harbert, of Northville. Mich,. 2 and 1, in the "battle of Plum Hollow for the American POA championship. Ferrier. who hadn't won a major national championship since he left Australia in 1939 after four triumphs in the Australian amateur and two in the Australian Open, zoomed into fourth place in the pros' 1947 money parade by pocketing the $3,500 top prize here for .his first tournamnt victory of the year. . In running his tournament earnings to $0,669.16 since the first of the year, the gum-chewing, club- waggling Ferrier played approximately 12 rounds in a week over Plum Hollow Golf Club's long, tricky, 6,922 yard layout at an aggregate of 27 strokes under par for 204 holes. If anybody ever won a champion ship with one club Ferrier did it with his putter. He dropped in a 60-foot putt on the 36th green to carry his third round match with Claude Harmon into extra holes, winning on the 37th. and "putted" Harbert right out of the championship in yesterday's finals. Ferrier required just 54 putts for the 35 holes his match with Harbert tances ranging Chick, meanwhile, missed a total of eight putts of seven feet or ess in t he finals, five of them to win and three to tic. and-used 62 putts during the day's doings. "He really murdered me with that 35-footer on the 23rd hole," Harbert said after the match. "We were all square at the time and I honestly was looking for him to take three to get in when he slapped it into th back of the cup for a deuce I never could catch him after that" RICH BLOdD LEXINGTON, Ky.— The highest thoroughbred stud fee this year was that of imported Challenger II and DANCE Every Night From 0 to 12 Beer by the Case Budweiser on Tap BELVEDERE CLUB On the Borgcr Highway High School Graduates JOBS FOR YOU IN JAPAN Young men: often you'vo dreamed of travel to foreign countries, how other pooplo live, visiting curious sights of world r»- .nco- screens.
