£ V-W*A ^"-VPAGESIX TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 7, 1938. Giants Batter Reds 11 to 2, Then Swap Berger By HUGH S. FULLERTON Jr., Associated Press Sports Wrllcr. One of those trades that are described optimistically as helping boih clubs, completed Just before the Giants left Cincinnati yesterday lends lustre to the "crucial" four- game tussle between New York and Chicago which gets underway today. The league leadership is at stake and the Giants figure they got just What they needed when they obtained Alex Kampouris from the Reds yesterday in an even swap for big Wally Berger. a spars outfielder. Since Burgess Whitehead was laid low by appendicitis this spring, the Terrymen have been sadly afflicted by the lack of a dependable man at the keystone corner. They tried Lou Chiozza and Mickey Haslin. But neither had the answer. The Giants, recalling an old "hoodoo," tuned up for today's game by pasting the Reds, 11-2, in their farewell game yesterday while the Cubs retained their half-game lead with a 10-8 decision over the Phillies. The Cubs, trying to gst along without using any first-run pitchers, were hard pressed to hold off the Phils as Al Eppcrly weakened after being given a 3-0 lead in ths first inning; Charley Root went out in the seventh and Jack Russell was clobbed hard. Jimmie Foxx of the Boston Red Sox, Ken Chase and Zeke Bonura of Washington, and Roy Henshaw of the St. Louis Cardinals, wers the headline performers in the day's other leading games. Foxx paced the Red Sox in a come-back that enabled them to .beat out Detroit, 8-7, after trailing by five runs in the seventh. Foxx clubbed his fourteenth homer, drove in three other counters and finally scored the winning run. , The Senators had to go 11 innings hut they finally checked the Cleveland Indians' progress, 5 to 4, as Chase hurled seven-hit ball for the 'first 10 innings and Bonura doubled to score Al Simmons with the winning run. The defeat cut Clevaland's American league lead to three games as the New York Yankee.-; after spotting the St. Louis Browns five runs in the fourth, came back .to win out. 6-5. Henshaw, who remained witli the Cards because Commissioner Landis wouldn't let them send him to Rochester, pitched six-hit ball to beat the Boston Bees, 11-2. For the second straight day, Brooklyn had one big- inning and beat Pittsburgh, 9-4, .scoring seven runs on as many hits in the first inning and the other two in the second. The Chicago White Sox and Philadelphia Athletics took a clay off. ^ tyolcott to Run High Hurdles in Marquette Meet -. MILWAUKEE. June 7 (/in—Fred Wolcott, Rice Institute's sophomore hurdle sensation timed for an unofficial world record of 13.9 seconds in the 120 high hurdles this season, was listed today a definite entry in the Central Collegiate track and field championships in Marquette University stadium, Friday afternoon and night. . Coach Emmett Brunson of the Houston school also informed Marquette authorities other Rice entries would be Jack Peterson, national 400 meter hurdle champion; E. Y. Steakley, sprinter; Ivan Jones and Calvin Bell, middle distance men, and a mile relay team. . The University of Texas, through Coach Clyde Littlefield, sent information five of its Southwest Conference stars would compete.

Bring on Ambers, Says Henry HE'S the champ, now! Henry Armstrong throws an arm into the air in exultation in his dressing room, after defeating Barney Ross in New York. The coast battler's 15-round decision over Ross made him the possessor of two world crowns at the sFme time, with a third in sight. He holds the featherweight title, as well as the welter, and will light Lou Ambers for the lightweight honor. Shippers Chalk Up Three Homers SCHMEUIfG WANTS JACOBS IN it FOR LOUIS BOOT By GAYLE TALBOT. SPECULATOR, N. Y., June 7 M') — One arrives here, just in time to learn that Max Schmellng is preparing to make a ringing personal appeal to the New York State Athletic Commission to restore a second's li- CH'.se to Joe Jacobs. Max has decided that he wants his manager of record in his corner whsn he starts taking pot shots at Jce Louis again on the night of June 22 at Yankee stadium. He plans, he says, to button-hols Brigadier-General John J. Phelan, chairman of the commission, when the latter makes an expecte-i appearance here in the next few day.';. As matters stand, Jacobs wouldn't be permitted within yelling distance of Max's corner on the night of th^ big scrap. He lost his second's diploma last winter when the com- inhsion devclcped a temporary pe:vc at Tony Galcnto. who is managed by the "Muscle." Joe has been in the schlager's corner in all of his fights in America. In fact, the- little manager was given 50-50 credit the night of 1930 that Max won the heavyweight title from Jack Sharkcy on a foul. It was he who swarmed into the ring and convinced Referee Jim Crowlcy that Max had been swatted beneath the bslt. Further, Max says, it was Jacobs who invaded Joe Louis' dressing rocm the evening of thuir firsc fight and saw to it tnat the negro wore only the stipulated quantity of bandage and tire tape around his lifts instead of the lethal dose lv.' had been administering to prior opponents. It is seldom that tho German ivorks himself info such n positive slate cf mind about anything. It acssibly is accounted for by the fact ihat he had reached top condition too soon and i.s on edge. From here on he i.s going to box only fix rounds daily and will lay off entirely this coming Thursday and Frk'ay. "I could fielu tomorrow night," he said. ® Clown (By The Assoi-mu-ii I'r,-*sl Witli only two games .scheduled i in the Texas league today (Tuc.s- | day), the Beaumont Exporter/; have ' a chance to boost their seven per- ! centage-pcint • lead while the .sec-1 ond-place Oilers are among j the idle.

(X!'i— It doesn't as much to serve warrants in the great open .spaces of Arizona days, now that .'-lUTrift'.s deputies can automobiles instead of horses to reach outlying localities.

Bound hy Romantic John Montague Puts Approval On Denver Links DENVER, June 7 (#>)—Husky John Montague has been tagged Hollywood's "mystery man" of golf, but if; makes no mystery of what he hinks of Cherry Hills, battleground 'or the National open this week. "Grand" was the way he described it after his first game over the course, during which his meander- ngs took him to a mud flat border- ng a ditch where he twisted the landle of an iron blasting back onto the fairway. "There's nothing wrong with this :olf course," Montague asserted. However, he will be in the gallery, lot on the firing line when the open starts Thursday. He only shook his head when newspapermen queried him about ils score. Tile burly Hollywoodian, about whose golfing prowess tall tales have been spun, said he thought "par ;olf—a shade over or under," should win the 1938 open title. Par for Cherry Hills is 71.

He said there would be an announcement "at the proper time." Miss Bourne, of New York and Atlanta, Ga., is an heiress to a sewing machine fortune, and has participated in tournament golf. FUGITIVES FROM DUST BOWLS PORTLAND, Ore., June 7 Meager subsistence in hovels on the fringe of civilization have been the lot of scores of weary men, women and children who left the nation's dust bowls in dilapidated automobiles to seek a promised land in Oregon. For every farmer resettled with money and land from the government, a dozen others have drifted to the back roads, scratching out pitiful garden patches' in the timber, working for subsistence in the fields and living in makeshift homes. Thj records of ths Farm Security Administration are filled with happy cnth-inning double scored run that I interviews from families who qualify seat Indians, 5-4; also belted three- in money, implements, stock and in- bagger and single. Johnny McCarthy and Hal Schumacher, Giants—McCarthy led way n 11-2 defeat of Reds with four ingles; Schumacher scattered Cin- :innati's eight hits. Frank Crosetti, Yankees—his eight-inning single drove in run hat beat Browns, 6-5. Kiki Cuyler, Dodgers—got triple ind pair of singles to pace 15-hit, 9-4 victory over Pirates. Bobby Doerr and Roger Cramer, led Sox—Doerr's single brought lome winning rim in 8-7 conquest 3f Tigers; Cramer got two doubles and two singles in five trips to plate. Frank Demaree and Ken O'Dea, Cubs—Demai-ee bagged three singles, O'Dea got two doubles as Cubs whipped Phillies, 10-8. in money, implements, stock and intelligence. For the majority of others, unheard of and unknown, there is only desolation. Deep in Oregon's rich farm, dairy and orchard region, a middle aged man with a tubercular wife, two sons and three daughters took precarious refuge in their flight from eastern Colorado. The environment shocked a hardened relief investigator. Ths mother and father slept in a .trailer more like a boxcar. It teetered on its rusty jacks when the wind blew. Chickens wandered in and out of ths flapping door, at home on a soiled, untidy bed or hopping from broken chair to grubby table. Two boys of pre-school age slept on a bursting mattress in a packing' box hut. Tlie chickens had been there, too. A flea-bitten collie piip slept on the boys' bed. The girls—one of them went to a distant high cshool in the county bus—had a shack a few yards up the slope. It was tidier. Thre/> goats provided milk. The only cow was dry. A few vegetable plants pushed through soil around fir stumps. A ragged, sturdy Kansas plains family had set up a half-tent, half- shack home en another hillside. Frcm the canvas covered doorway they looker! out' upon fertile orchards and clover fields sweeping westward to the cool coastal mountains. The father toiled on a seven-acre tract felling fir and hewing and sawing it into cordwood. His labor was the price of his tenancy. The fuel will be sold in tewn and the slim rsvenue may provide a crop among the s'.umps next season. "It's green and cool here and there's not so much dust.. 1 ' said : the mother. Two children, a boy.and a girl, clung to her tattered skirts. X-KAYS SAVE ORANGES OLIVE, Calif.

The Cubs, leading the Giants by a half game, placed their hopes of tightening their top-spot grip on the right arm of Big Bill Lee, who has won his last five games, three c,n shutout performances. For the Giants it was Cliff Melton, the 25- year-old southpaw who had seven victories and only two defeats at his record this season. The two' teams were pre-season chcices to battle it out for the senior circuit flag and thus.,far,,it appears the experts may. ring the bell with that forecast. After, a month and .a half of skirmishing the Cubs were four games ahead of the third place Boston aggregation, while the Giant's lead on the Bees was only a half-game less.
