When Al. Simmons didn't appear on the field for the second game of a. doubleheader. between the Philadelphia Athletics u.nd tho Washing-ton Senators . on Memor- ia.1 Day, 3<)30, the fans wondered Vh> Al jj.mmons—there's a name that bi'ings hack memories of great days In Philadelphia. They culled •him tho Duke of Milwaukee—and with yood reason. Al'y play for the A's was in the noble style. His strictly unorthodox, baui'trg 1 stance wns tho despair of every base-boil', manager. They couldn't understand how a guy could pull one foot away—put it in the bucket, so to speak—and xtlll.hit big league pitr.liing. .But A-. Allowed them it could be done. Tho" Senators and thu. A's had a morning-afternoon doublehoadur lodulfd at Philadelphia, on that Memorial Day ]•) years ago. Al was the hero of Ihe morning ga.mi:. "-Us homer Lied the score with two out it'., olio ninth. Tn the fifteenth lie doubled and ca;ni_' around . t'O scory the winning run. But something happened on l.ha.t play. Al twisted his riK r liL linee— 'a blood vessel broke and the knoo begun to swell. The A's club doctor took a quick look and ordered cold compresses. He told Al that the swelling /-would go down—eventually. Then he broke the bad news to -Manager Connie Mack. | Mack learned that Simmons was ! through for the day—.lio couldn't run on that leg. The veteran manager asked .if the • doctor wanted to take Al lo a hospital. The doctor ^said yes—yes he did want 10 take AI Simmons to a hospital—but not that afternoon. Tt wasn't necessary. Ho said he had come out to soe a double header— and he to see ,'t double header. He told Mack to put Simmons aack into uniform and keep him'on .lie bench for. the second game. The doctor chuckled as he told Mack lhal Simmons couldn't run, but he might com* in handy as a pinch- hitter. The medico said: "We'll il.v that knee up later." The first ganie had lasted so long that it was nearly timn for the afternoon conlost. to begin. Simmons •ec:i;is that George Earnshaw •staried for the A's—-and Bumps •ladIcy wont to the mound for the Senators. There wasn't much for tho Phi!, adelphia fans to r.hcer about :is tho game moved along. Hadley had it—and Earnshaw didn't. The Philadelphia fans groaned as the Senaiors waclod into Earnshaw's sluf;'—they treated him like a long lost cousin. When the last half of the seventh innini- rolled around tho. ScnnLors led 7 to 3, Joe Boley was rlue Lo lead o!f for the Athletics—but Mack dur- rickod Eoloy and sent in a pinch hitter. The pinch-hitler got on. Then suddenly there was a base on balls and i\ hit. Th« bases were loaded. Something elcclHc gripped the fans. Their I.eam sLill was four runs behind, but something told them that this was their chance. On lh<: Phil.-u.'e-phia bunch Connie Mack looked rtown the lino and crooked his linger at Al Simmons. Mack told his sluggof to get in there and hit. HP lold Al to hit that ball, and walk' ' around bases if necessary. Simmons hobbled to the plate und tho roaring fans nhoorcd as he went back into action. They callo.d for another one of those homers, On tho mound Harloy . carefully lookod LoTiis catcher for a sign. On the bench Connie Mack uat ca'lm- ly, and waitorl. Bumps.. Hadley took plenty of time with that first pitch. It was ball one. Then Bumps tried another one in the same spot—and again Al let it go by—ball two. Then Hadley changed his tactics and came in to try for a strike. Bumps rammed the ball clown and this time A| Simmons was hitting, noi looking. He r :u .u K ht that ball just right—with tho meat end'of his bat. The roar from Hie stands shook the roof as- the b'ait foil in the left field seats. Al hobbled iroiincl the bases lo score the lying •un. The A's then wont on to win coring the deciding tally in the linth.

Tho Dodgers from Brooklyn did the uncommon and won a hall game. It was an exhibition with the Bluejackets of Great T-'ikes. and doesn't count in tho standings. However, the Groat Lakes veteran-spangled team has levelled live major league clubs !.his season. Until tho Dodgers licked them, they had won 39 of -iO games. Two Dodger puchcrs s;?lit the chore for Brooklyn, allowing the s.i i lot's just four runs. Tom Warren and Cal McT^ish pitched, with Warren taking the game, 7 to -1.

Scott stroeL, Xord- hill NniiKOs, mnnajrer, announced '.his morning It was reported . that Linden niii-k was unavailable at the prcs- ont as arrangements for the U. S. Rubber Co. outini,' aro being made, and the bal! wame would interfere u-Hh the -v\'0rk there. However, Coach "Garry" Grant said .this morning, that. it. would mako no differer.ce where . the game was played as his charges -•an piny good ball anywhere. Although no o!')icial announcement of umpires has yet been made, indications are tlwit Firemen iid Calvin will be the robber behind the plate, while Francis Galvin,, another smoke-eater, will cul! the plays on the bases and baspaths.

Oa.sie Elucgc . and his hand somewhat less than 40 thieves ara running between the base paths I | in the American league .so much J without tlj2 base hit benefit— thru. rival manajjcrs urc thinking of calling: out the rialfeet. The Se-r.ators of the Junior 'Icayue arc piling togcttwtr an am;jji- iny base-stealing record. The layman' might .soy "Hah, any team with George C.'isc can set such a record." But Case is only half of it: Just half in fact. The entire team has turned to diamond larceny this seasoiv. Until now the team has swiped 71 American league bags-r- and younjf Pcathcrfoot Case has MO of these. Owner'' Clark . Grifmh. of the Washington* — called the Old Fox. though this quality has. deserted him at lho trading blo^.k mon> i.han .once— probably would bo vary happy if the authorities would let runners steal first. Jf this came to pass Washington would bo somew-liere up the American !ea.gue trolley line— in- d of in l.xsi place. For you can't do much good stealing bases without first hiitiny safely — or i!vvn drawing a walk or error — to land on the first, to boffin operations from there. The Senators are troubled with a flurry of low batUng averages. George Washington Case is, of course, the leading man in the Senator robbery band. He's having trouble heading the league, however, what with New- York'.> Snuffy Stirnweiss laying smoke screens from base to base. Old Fox Griffith mu.=i have written a clause in the contract saying i.hc eighth commandment .ran be broken, if second or third base, or better ye;, home pl,iie is the object stolen. The Senators rest in last position — yes. But the rival managers figure the only way they keep llie Washington Speedsters from stealing a bas« is to down the sack, or post a Marine guard around it.

"HOME IN INDIANA" TWO MORE DAYS AT LOEW'S METHODIST LKADKK DEAD Providence, 'R.I., Aug. 9—(UP)— One of tho nation's foremost Moth- idist leaiYrs is dead at San Diego, Cal. The Reverend Doctor Richard D. Holington' was 73 years old. He vas pastor of the Methewson treet Methodist church in Provi- encc from 191G to 1927. "Homo in Indiana" which hns •two days loft to run nt Loow Poli theater is the beautiful romance and drama of horse racing. Featuring Waiter Brennan, Lon McCallister, Jeanne Grain, Charlotte Greenwood, June Haver and outstanding supporting cast, the picture is •based on the celebrated Saturday Evening Post serial, "The Phantom Filly," by George Agnnw Chamberlain. "1-Tnme In Indiana" tells its beautiful and exciting story of spirited youth, lovely women, fast horses and proud mnn against t,he brilliantly colorful background of county fairs and the great "apple pie" country in the most dazzling beautiful Technicolor this reviewer has ever seen. Walter Brennnn gives what is easily his most outstanding, character portrayal to date. His role—that of "Thunder" Bolt, the proud horse trainer whose shattered dreams are revived by a young and impetuous boy and a "secret" filly—is tailor-made to the three-time "winner who plnys it with deep understanding and warmth. In other important roles, three comparative newcomers to the screen provide one of the most refreshing treats of the year. Lon MoCallistei- whose performance as "California" in "Stage Door ' Canteen," marked him as a truly exciting discovery, firmly establishes his right to stardom with his winning portrayal of Sparkc, the boy who has so much to learn about women and horses. Aces Lose In Father Shea League The Aces lost another game in. the Father Shea league in Waterbury yesterday. The strong Hill- Lops club with Frank Massimo giving ii]) only three hits outscored the locals 6-1. -Three runs in each of the second ar.d third frames was more than enough to win. The Aces scored their lone marker in the last of tho seventh. Mas-coin, and Schuster formed the battery ior the Aces.

The move will quiet—at loast foi a while— the critic? who insist that Dodger President Branch Rickey won't look at ,-v player over IS. Sunkel brings the Dodgers some badly-needed left-handed pitching strength.
