Once again in first place in the American League, the Yankees already are a step ahead of their blistering 1936 pace. ' As they man-handled their way to victory in the junior circuit's pennant race and the world series last,year, the Yanks skipped few team and individual batting honors. Now they have achieved one peak .•they missed in their record-breaking 1936 climb with the major leagues' first triple play of the week- old season. Credit for setting the three-ply killing in motion goes to Tony Lazzeri,' the crafty veteran from San Francisco, Tough Tony • has done a lot • of neat jobs for the Yanks, but few neater than that In the eighth inning of yesterday's 7-1 defeat of the Athletics. With runners on first and second, Chubby Dean drove one of Johnny Broaca's offerings straight at Lazzeri. Tony trapped the ball, then flipped It to shortstop Frank .Crosettl. Before the A's or the frost-bitten customers knew what was go- Ing on, Bob Johnson had been forced at second. Dean was thrown out at first and W&lly Moses was tagged by Red Rolfe as he went Into third. Though the weather man washed out all but three games yesterday, those three provided enough excitement to go around. The Boston Bees' 9-5 trimming of the Brooklyn Dodgers was marked by Brooklyn manager Burleigh Grimes' second consecutive expulsion from the field. In Boston, Bobby Doerr, 19-year old Red Sox recruit second baseman from the Pacific Coast League, was beaned by Washington right-hand- er Ed Linke, in the course of Boston's 12-5 slaughtering of the Senators. Doerr went to a Hub hospital for x-rays and observation. Name Of Ball Club Already Placed On New Uniforms o What Is the name of Pampa's new ball club and who won the $20 first prize and the second prize of a season box, seat? The answers will be given Friday night at Road Runner park when the Pampa team takes the field against the Huber Blackfaces of Borger at 8 o'clock. Regular admission of 25 cents for women and 40 cents for men will be in order. When fans enter the grandstand they will see the Pampa nine taking Infield workout wearing jackets turned inside out. Under the jackets will be new uniforms of gray, trimmed with dark blue. No names will be showing. . Just before the umpire calls, "Play Ball," the players will line up in front of the grandstand and remove their jackets, 'revealing the name of the club which will be in dark blue letters across -the front of the uniforms. . Then names of persons who submitted the selected .name during the contest period wili be placed in a box and one name will be selected. -'That person, IF PRESENT AT THE GAME, will receive the $20 cash. If the person. whose name is selected is not present, another name will be selected for the first prize. After the cash has been awarded, some person in the stand "Will receive the season box seat. The 1937 season will then be officially opened. Who will throw the first ball? That has not yet been determined, ' On the mound for Pampa will probably be Goodell, new lefthander •who; calls Amarillo his home. The portsider has been working out every afternoon and should be in shape to face the Blackfaces who will likely send Byron Chody, ace righthander, to the hill. __ mm, m if -ITMOF .

Jigye ' MRS. GOLDTHIA1TE LEADING FIELD IN WOMEN'S TOURNEY BY WILLIAM T. IUVES. TEXARKANA, April 27 (fl>)—The field forgot about the champion today and took out after Mrs. Frank Goldthwaite, long-driving Curtis cup star and medalist, as Texas' state Women's Golf tournament reached the match play stage. But the school girl champion, 17- year-old blond Betty Jameson, who was worried almost as much by the approaching necessity of writing a 15-page term theme in psychology as that of disposing of Mrs. Gold- thwalte's challenge, was unruffled. Mrs. Goldthwaite conquered high wind and an unpleasant thin blanket of dust, to finish the qualifying round over the Country club course yesterday with an 81, four strokes better than Miss Jameson's 85. Neither was expected to encounter insuperable difficulty today although Mrs. Goldthwaite met a dangerous opponent in Miss' Betty Edwards, Brook Hollow Country club mainstay from Dallas. The titleholder teed off with Mrs. Frank McNally of Longvlew. The treacherous rolling greens and tree-lined fairways teamed with the elements to make miserably futile all efforts to approach within hailing distance of par. "It's the toughest course I have ever played," mourned Mrs. Goldthwaite, who practically has played them all, from American to Scotland. "If you miss a shot or get in trouble, look out. I hope I miss all mine in the fairway," she said. Vying with the two leaders in interest was vivacious Jo Jenson, 17- year-old Paris schoolgirl, who admitted that in her first major tournament "I was so nervous some of the time I could hardly hold a club." She fashioned an 87, thanks to a fine 40 on the back side after overcoming the jitters. Miss Henson faced a hardy campaigner in Miss Kathryn Pearson of Houston. Other leaders were: Mrs. F. E. Pharr, Texarkana, and Mrs. H, A. Peterson, Dallas municipal players, who carded 86's; Mrs. Ralph Randolph, Dallas, 87, and Mrs. E. LH. Wohlfahrfc, Dallas, 91. They met respectively Mrs. R. P. Dodge, Port Arthur; Mrs. J. R. Morriss, Texarkana; Mrs. George Thompson Jr., Fort Worth, and Miss Anna Bland Thompson, Fort Worth. Mrs. John Parnell, Dallas, state municipal queen who qualified with a 93, met Mrs. Jake Hamon, another Dallasite. The Houston Country club was awarded the next tuornament and Mrs. Syd Hurst, Dallas, the only one of highly-regarded candidates who failed to qualify, was re-elected CHICAGO, April 27 (/P) — They may be In the National league cellar, but Charlie Dressen insisted today that you still can't take a thing away from his scrappy Cincinnati Reds, "Listen," the little manager said with a slap on the record book he'd been thumbing; "If any one had told me two weeks ago we'd start the season by losing four straight—why I'd have bet my last shirt against it. But we lost 'em—and I still think we have a real ball club. The records of those four defeats appear to back up Dressen. Dizzy Dean whipped them 2 to 0 at Clnclnati in 10 innings, but the St. Louis Cardinal star had great fielding support. The Reds got 14 hits to nine for the Cards In the second the Cards won a 14 to 11 slugfest, with the Reds again showing power at the plate The Pittsburgh Pirates won 4 to 3 and then, leading going into the ninth, the Pirates won a second game, 3 to 2, on Lee Hendley's single. Dressen believes his pitching staff will develop into one of the best in the game. He plans to use Paul Derringer, Ray (Peaches) Davis, Bill Hallahan, Lee Grissom, Lloyd Moore and Gene Schott regularly, sending the veteran Hallahan against certain clubs. He figures Derringer a certain 20-game winner. BOXERS TO MEET. LOS ANGELES, April 27 Veteran Maxle Rosenbloom, <ormer world light heavyweight champion, and wiry Alberto Lovell of the Argentine meet over the 10-round distance at the Olympic auditorium tonight. Rosenbloom came back to his adopted Hollywood homeland 10 days ago after outpointing Roscoe Toles in Detroit. He figured to outsmart the Argentine negro, 1932 Olympic games champion. Lovell sprang an upset three weeks ago in punching out a 10-round decision over Andre Lenglet, towering French heavyweight. president of the state association at a meetin yesterday afternoon. aUARANTEEI) NOT TO SHJUNKJ Our Arrow Shirts are Sanfofized-Shrunk.—with guarantee not to shrink.

May be another Bob Feller or another Babe Ruth, for they say he can pour the pine into that leather almost as well as he pitches . . . (Ruth began his baseball career in a home for boys, too.) Yankees are mighty interested and so are the Cardinals . ... Our southern operatives report one big league club offered Templeton $10,000 to sign a contract . . . Another said it would better any bid the kid received by $1,000 . . . One report has it the Cardinals have the inside track and that if Archie hasn't already made up his mind to cast his lot with St. Louis, he will soon. (By The Associated Pres*.) Texas league games yesterday made up in quality what they lacked in quantity with not more than two runs separating the teams in any one of the three contests played. For the second straight day pitching was the big noise. The Beaumont Exporters, leading the league, were idle along with Houston. Oklahoma City went from fourth place to second with a 3-1 victory over the Fort Worth Cats, the loss, incidentally, dropping the Panthers to a tie for third. The Dallas Steers continued their winning streak by nosing out the Tulsa Oilers 2-1. It was Dallas' third straight victory, and all of them have been scored over the Oil- ers. San Antonio defeated Galveston 5-3 in the other game played. Buxton of Tulsa and Le Blanc of Fort Worth hooked up in a pitcher's duel with each allowing but seven hits. Paul Easterllng led the Oiler offensive with three hits, one a homer. He batted in two runs, enough to give his team victory. Al Baker limited Tulsa to four hits as Dallas scored twice in the sixth to win. San Antonio made it two in a row over the hapless Pirates with Ewald Pyle besting Eddie Cole in a mound duel. Budge Entirely Out Of Racquets SAN FRANCISCO, April 27 W)— Red-haired Don Budge would practice his tennis today for the Davis cup play against the Japanese start- Ing Friday but he's all out of rac- j quets. Budge, ranking No. 1 singles player in the country, said he had broken his entire supply of 15 1-2 ounce racquets but one or more is due from Chicago today. "I don't know how Budge got the idea of using such a heavy racquet," said the American team's non- playing captain, Edward G. "Bud" Chandler,-mildly exasperated. "A 14- ounce racquet is standard—but then, Budge can use what he wants." While the Japanese, who will meet the Americans here April 30 and May 1 and 2, walked up and down San Francisco's hills in the rain yesterday for exercise, the U. S. team took things easy. lengthened the odds on Col; Bradley's Brooklyn as a Kentucky Derby choice ... If Tommy Henrich makes the grade, the Yanks will have two of the best throwing outfielders in baseball . . . Pew can rifle them in like DiMaggio . . . Washington wants Red Ruffing, but the Yankees say they'll not trade him. "THE CHEAPEST THING ON YOUR CAR IS THE BEST TIRES YOU CAN BUY"... Heavy play on Pompooh has CUT SUMMER DRIVING COSTS!
