Although scoring 38 points, while holding the Bears nway from their goal Hue, the Harvester offense was disappointing in several particulars. ; Crippled by the loss of their eo- captain and all-district end from last year, James Andrews, the Bobcats will be a reorganized pack of animals, Their teeth have been drawn with the loss of Andrews, it was shown on Friday night when Wichita Falls took a 28 to 0 decision from Ohildress. The Harvesters are now pointing to their games with Capitol Hill of Oklahoma City on Oct. 11. Undefeated in 42 consecutive games, the Indians are doped to be the Harvesters' stiffnst compction until they got into the conference schedule. (BY DOYLE VINSON.) CHILDRESS, Sept. 30.—It will be a .crippled Childress Bobcat football team that takes the field against the powerful Pampa Harvesters here Thursday night, as Captain James Andrews, all-distirct end, will be out of .the game due to an injury recelvfid last week in nn automobile accident. . The Bobcats last week were humbled 28-0 by the Wichita Falls Coyotes, in the opening district 5 game of the season, after winning two. warm-up .contests. They opened .with a triumph over the class B Chillicothe team 52-0, and beat Polytechnic of Fort Worth C-0, Coach Joe Gibson may do some experimenting: this week in an effort to fill the hole left by the absence of Andrews, but it is considered likely that he will start the following against Pampa: .Garland Terrell, 161-pound lot- terman at center; Poke Coleman, 168, lettcrman, and Mac Woods, 165, guards; Curley Stephens, 198, letterman, and Leonard White, 165, tackles; J. W. Helms, 165, lettcrman, arid Olin Rainwater, 160, ends; James Brummett, 148, quarter; Co- captain Paul Carter, 105. letterman, fullback; Carl Lanningham, 155-pound letterman, and Les Kimbrought, 143, halfbacks. The.'Oats are entirely without reserves, having on!y a half-dozen inexperienced hands available for replacements. • Gibson is expected to attempt to polish up tha blocking and lack- ling of his men this week, as those two departments proved to be the Cats- weakest points against Wichita Falls. Lon'ghprns To CJash With Louisiana State ... BY BIM; PARKER, Associated I'rc^ Sports Writer. - Undefeated In September's non- conference combats, Texas Christian. Frogs and the University of Arkansas Razorbacks will inaugurate the 21st annual Southwest conference championship Saturday at Fayetteville. The other members will engage in stiff non-conference games, featured by the interscctional struggle Saturday at Tyler • ^between "Pop" Warner's Temple university Wildcats and Homer , Norton's fighting Texas A. & M. .Aggies. Third in ranking will be the University of Texas'- set-to at Baton Rouge, against, Louisiana In; the other games, Rice'in- stitute; 1934 ) conference champion, meets Duquosne university at Houston; Southern Methodist Invades Tulsa to battle Tulsa university, and the Baylor Bears- will entertain Texas A. & I. at Waco. The Texas Christian gladiators warmed up Saturday by beating the North Texas Teachers of Denton, 28 to 11. The Christians experienced trouble in getting started but once their touchdown parade got under way It was too bad for the Teachers. Jimmy Lawrence, the Christian's most powerful ball -carrier, did not compste but will be ready to go against Arkansas. Last year graduations robbed the Razorbacks of much power but they demonstrated Saturday they will be worthy of watching when they whipped a strong Kansas State Teachers' machine, 12 to 0. Having trimmed St-ephen F. Austin, 37 to 6, and the Sam Houston Teachers, 25 to 0, the Aggies are primed for a sweet afternoon of rer vonga..on the Temple invaders, whp defeated them 40 to 6 last .year. Officials are anticipating 'a record crowd of .20,000 people at Tyler. Coach Jack Chevigny's University of Texas Longhorns face trouble at Baton Rouge. The Longhorns looked good Saturday beating Texas A. & I., 38 to 6, but their joust against Louisiana State is -another story— one that calls for a severe test of Texas' power on the ground and in the air. Confidence was instilled in the Rice Owls Saturday when they 2net and conquered Louisiana State, 10 to 7. Ail-American Bill Wallace and All-Southwest Conference John McCauley were the outstanding players. Victorious over the North Texas Teachers, 39 to 0, and Austin college, '60 to 0, Coach Madison Bell's Southern Methodist Mustangs will have an opportunity to prove their real scoring power when they tie into Tulsa university. This will be the Mustangs first real test. The Baylor Bears showed promise Saturday by beating Hardin-Simmons, 14 to 0. The Bears will get a stiffer test this week-end when they battle Texas A. & I. at Waco. NKW YORK, Sept 30 Iff-)— Depression that usually follows a couple -of lush seasons appears to have caught up with Lou, Little and his Columbia football team. The Big Little, who looks like Ed Wynn and can do almost as many tricks with his players as the comedian does with his hands, says he will be satisfied if the team breaks even. Graduation took nine players from his 1934 starting lineup. The leftovers plus some. youngsters promoted from last year's freshman team give him a squad composed mostly of young and untried players. "All I have left from last year's verity are . Capt. and Fullback Al B,arabas and Guard Jim navies," said Little, "I'm not so sure about Sambas, either. I don't know just how strong' his left knee is after having a cartilege removed.

The line is causing Little more worry than the backfield because of its shortage of experience. Ert Furey, who saw some action at right end last season, is slated for the starting lineup in that position. The other flank probably will be filled by Hubert Sculze, a rangy sophomore, who also is being groomed for the punting and passing assignment, sharing the latter with Barabas. The other line posts will be filled by Zielinski and -Mareski at tackles; Davis and Coviello, guards, and Glenn Hersey, center. Hersey is the most promising of last year's yearlings. The sohei-ute!

ROOT WILL HURL 2ND GAME WITH LARRY FRENCH READY 'CHICAGO, Sept. 30. '(AP)—LOn Warneko, the .pride of :the Ozarks, will oppose the Tigers in the first game of the world series, opening in Detroit Wednesday. •• : This was the decision today of Charley John Grimm, manager of the Cubs. "You can publish that in the papdr right now," Grimm said. "And if you want to' know some more,'Root will go'after those guys on Thursday. 'And if either of them gets in trouble, Larry trench will go to his relief." . The Cubs, who returned to Chicago last midnight after winding 1 up the season in St. Louis, had other things on their minds aside from practice. They planned to meet to agree on a* division of the world series bag of gold, and then to pack their bags for their trip to Detroit. Fewer than a hundred loyal Cub fans were'at the station last night to greet the National league champions on their return 1 from St. Louis, because the -time of their arrival was not generally known-. The Cubs, however, got a rousing reception. Manager Grimm decided to'give the players a day off from. practice today. •••While the iplayers were agreeing upon the • division of' the' world series 'receipts, win or lose, the Cubs' business office was getting ready for the jam for tickets for world series games to be played at Wrigley field Oct. 4, 5, and 6.

Oberholtzer, superintendent of schools, in an effort to have their coach, Wylie Summers, reinstated Summers resigned, in a letter made public by Dr. Oberholtzer, because, he said, study for his master's and law .degrees was requiring too much time. Spokesmen for the team said, however, they felt he -resigned for other reasons The players decided to turn in their uniforms rather than see Summers leave as coach. opening of the box office windows promptly at 8 o'clock tomorrow morning. Series DETROIT, Sept. 30 (IV)— The Detroit Tigers returned from the baseball wars today for the Armageddon of the 1935 season. They meet the Chicago Cubs- Wednesday in the opening world series clash. A joyous, baseball-mad city received them. The fact that it was Detroit's second world series in as many years appeared to have whetted, rather than dulled, the enthusiasm of fans here, thousands of whom failed in attempts to obtain advance reservations for the classic. The Bengals had their last opportunity for - unlimited practice on Navin field today, and Manager Mickey Cochrane planned to make the most of it. He called -an intensive workout this afternoon to accustom his players to the altered conditions at the park. Tomorrow the Tigers will have their practice session in the morning to give the Cubs, who arrive tonight, a chance to use the field. Auxiliary bleachers seating 19,000 have been constructed over the left field wall, shortening the playing space and presenting a glare of new wood to the batter's eye. With the additional seats, the field will accommodate more than 50,000 spectators. The advance guard of out-of-town fans already was arriving today taxing the capacities of larger hotels to the utmost. Some of the hostelries were converting sample rooms and small meeting rooms into dormitories. Baseball bowed its weary head yesterday in'Amarillo as bats and balls were packed away for the season. The final flurry was a game between the Pampa Road Runners and Coltexo Gas of LeFors, united, and the Huber Blackfaces and Phillips 66 Oilers of Borger, before a handful of fans. Borger took -the slugging . bee, 9 to 3, with .Chody, Coburn, and Caraway on the mound. Daney, Parker, and. Carithers were mauled by the Borger sluggers. .The game was one of the most spectacular of the entire season. There were home runs, triples, doubles, and several snappy double plays which cut down the scoring considerably. The score was tied at 1 to 1 until the fifth when the Borgahs went on a rampage and scored four runs. From then on the game was never in doubt. The reflectors at Road Runner park have been taken down and stored away until next season, when more and better baseball is in store for Panhandle baseball fans. Season batting averages for members of the Road Runner team are being prepared and will be released soon. The team had a remarkable season, winning 50 games and losing only 23.

TEXAS CHRISTIAN WILL PLAY ARKANSAS IN HEADLINER (Tly The AnsoclntM Press.) With Saturday's games little more than matters for post mortem discussion, major college football teams prepared today for sterner tests ahead. In most instances the high rating aggregations turned back the opposition without much difficulty, but many of them will clash this week with opponents not accustomed to being pushed around. In the Southwest, Texas Christian, with a 28-11 victory over North Texas Teachers In its wake, will tackle Arkansas, the team that Christian bowed to 24-10 last year, while the University of Texas, conqueror of Texas A. & I. on last Saturday, will face Louisiana State. The defeated Texas A. & I. will play Baylor on the coming Saturday, Southern Methodist takes on Tulsa and Temple and Texas A. & M. are due to mix. Rice and Duquesne have another battle slated. In the far west Oregon State, fresh from a 26-0 victory over Wil- llamette, will meet the University of California at Los Angeles. St. Mary's which licked Nevada 20-0 Saturday, will battle California at Berkeley. Santa Clara takes on Washington; Utah university tangles with Oregon; Stanford meets the University of San Francisco at San Fran- clso; College of the Pacific meets Southern California at Los Angeles, and Idaho meets Gonzaga at Spokane. Notre Dame, showing signs of return to her old time glory when she subdued Kansas 28-7 on Saturday, will face a team that caused her plenty of trouble even in the height of her power, when she journeys to Pittsburgh to take • on Carnegie Tech.

Wl BE A8VRTOE OF TIG By ALAN GOULD Associated Press Sports Editor DETROIT, Sept. 30. (/P)^-If there is any single outstanding factor calculated to give the Detroit Tigers an advantage over the Chicago Cubs in the world series starting here Wednesday, it is their iron-man infield. This quartet—Hank Greenberg, Charley Gehringer, Billy Rogell and Marvin Owen—may provide the balance of power in a series which otherwise brings together two well- matched teams, The, .Cubs have a harder hitting outfield. They--also may :enjoy a pitching edge with Lonnie Warneke in much better .form right now than Schoolboy Rowe. They are willing ;to match the slugging Gabby Hartnett against Manager Mickey Cochrane behind the bat, without misgivings. But the National league champions, man for man, do not possess the infield strength of the Tigers. • Defensively, Detroit's inner quartet, labelled the "battalion of death" by Tiger rooters, is superior at every position to the Cub infield of Phil Cavarretta, Billy Herman, Bill Jurges and Stanley Hack. The Tiger infield has been intact, except for a few scattered days, for two years of championship competition. . Paced by Greenberg, the leading run-producer of both leagues, the Tiger infielders again have averaged more than 100 runs-batted-in per man. Greenberg's slugging has overshadowed the fact he also has developed 'into one of the best defensive first basemen in the game. The big Jewish: boy,.with a marlc of .993 for the season, has -a re> maskable defensive record. He outclasses Gavaretta, sensational though the Oub youngster has 'been in fijs first major league Season'as a re r placement tor Manager Charley Grimm, Clje «key men" of ,bQth Play second, base. •Hewa. be as flawlessly sjsajjy 99 the grace- ful Gehringer in the field, but he covers as much ground and he has outhlt his Tiger rival by about 15 points on. the season's run. Rogell and Owen are steadier and more experienced than their Cub rivals, on the left side of the infield Rogell is a much harder hitter than Jurges, but Hack, on this season's performances, has a batting advantage over Owen. The Cubs will rely on their brilliant outfield, consisting of Frank DeMaree, Freddie Lindstrom and Augie Galan, to provide the punch needed to offset the acknowledged power of the Tiger infield. Only a fine year for Pete Fox has saveo Detroit from being embarrassed by its outfield shortcomings. The veteran Goose Goslin still packs a wallop, but he is erratic on the defense. The failure of the flashy Jo Jo White to measure up to his 1934 form, especially at bat forced Cochrane to do some juggling, Gerald Walker will see world series service. As far as power is concerned, the series rivals are evenly matched. II is on the defensive side that the Tigers have a pronounced edge, as a team, but Chicago's better-balancec pitching staff may furnish a rebuttal. SEE US FOR GOOD USED TIRES AND USED TRUCK FARTS PAMPA HARDWARE AND IMPLEMENT COMPANY M. P. DOWNS Automobile Lo?m* and tang T«RHf Oklahoma City Is 7-4 Victor Otter ^Southern Champs EXCEPT BRAVES WHICH WENT FROM BAD TO WORSE BY HUGH S. FULLERTOiV Jr., The last out of the 1035 major league baseball season has been marked up, and the year's "box score" Indicates a successful season in one way or another for most of the clubs. The Cubs and Tigers still have to decide the year's ultimate supremacy in the world series, beginning Wednesday at Detroit. A host of other teams had the satisfaction of improving last year's positions. Still more could boast of having made a fight for the flag or of having drawn some of the biggest crowds In recent years. Notable improvement nrapng the low ranking teams was shown by the White Sox and Reds, both cellar dwellers last year, who finished fifth and sixth respectively in 1935. Pittsburgh, Brooklyn, and Washington also moved up a bit while Rogers Homsby's St. Louis Browns, seemingly a certain last-place club at the start, ended up by playing .some of the best ball in the American league to finish seventh. From the financial viewpoint the game seemed on the upgrade. A couple of new attendance marks were set. On the debit side, however, the Braves, going from bad to worse, set a new modern National league mark of 115 defeats in one season and never escaped from their financial difficulties. Two more notable records on the year's book were the endurance marks of Lou Gehrig of the Yankees who played in 149 games to stretch his string to 1,653 consecutive contests and Gus Suhr of the Pirates who established a new National league mark of 628 straight by getting into all of Pittsburgh's 143 games. The big event of the year, however, was Chicago's brilliant race to the National league championship, running 21 straight to win the flag by beating out first the Giants and then the Cards. The close of the regular campaign yesterday followed tiie u.sunl form in that both champions were beaten. The Cubs, whose winning streak was halted by St. Louis Saturday, took a final 2-1 defeat from -the Cards when Rookie Bill McGee held them to three hits. The Tigers took it on the chin twice from the White Sox. A ninth- inning run gave Chicago the opener 3 to 2 and the Sox pounded Elden Auker for a 14-2 decision in the sixth-inning afterpiece. Brooklyn clinched fifth place in the National league—the only position not settled before the final day —by taking- the first game from the Phillies 2 to 0 on Van Mungo's 2- hlt. 15-strikeout flinging. The sec- and ended in a 4-4 eight-inning tie. The day's other double bills ended in even breaks. The Giants trimmed the Braves 5 to 3 and then took a 3-0 shutout from Danny MacFayden. Pittsburgh whipped Cincinnati 5-1 in Mace Brown's four- hit flinging -then blew a 9 to 6 decision. The Red Sox outlasted the Yankees 4-3 and were blanked in turn 4 to 0. The Browns belted out a 9-7 victory then went down 7 to 4. Jimmie Foxx led the Athletics to an 11 to 8 -triumph over Washington in a single game, pounding out his 35th and 36th home runs to tie Detroit's Hank Greenb'erg for the year's t°P place. Opening Game Won By Texas League Titlists ATLANTA, Sept. 30. (AP)—The honors rested with the Texas league today after the opening game of the annual Dixie baseball scries in which Atlanta, Southern association champion, lost to Oklahoma City, 7 to 4. The Indians, with the aid of some potent hurling 1 by Long John NisTgeling, handed the Crackers their first defeat in eight games since the regular season closed. The Atlantan.s had come through with a clean slate, except for one tie, in the Shaughnessy playoff against Nashville and New Orleans. The second game of the series: will be played here tonight. Tha teams then move to Oklahoma City for games Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the four out of seven test. Russell "Red" Evans is slated, for tonight's mound assignment for the Oklahomans, while the Crackers are counting on Jim.' Lindsey to even the standings. -j Before 14,106 spectators yester-; clny the Indians bombarded Bud Thomas for six runs in the first six innings and added their final; tally in the seventh before ft single Cracker had crossed the plate. The Crackers came to life In their half of the seventh and got to Niggeling for a pair of runs. Ajjnin in the ninth the lanky Indian pitcher weakened as Atlanta filled the bases with none out. Lefty Brillheart relieved him and, broke up the rally at the ex- penese of only two more runs. Tho Texas league champions ivero off to a two-i-un lead in the first inning, added one in each of the second and third, and another pair in the sixth. After their seventh inning tally Bill Schmidt replaced Thomas and checked the Indians for the last two frames. Only Two Teams PARIS, Sept. 30. (/P)—The boys, in district nine of the Texas Intel-scholastic league aren't thinking much about district football competition. It's only a two club district this year, and the result of the single district combat isn't in doubt for n minute. The Greenville Lions, 1934 state semi-finalist, and Paris are the only remaining district nine teams. Sulphur Springs has transferred to the East Texas oil belt district. Greenville's interest is centered In .state competition after winning the district crown, which the Lions expect to do in their game against Paris. The district title will be .determined Oct. 25.
