Although MaMg'er Sam Halo hasn't an- nouhded Ws starting hurler, it will be either Carl Stewart or the veteran Sam.

Drain, originally from Tulsa, Okla.,' was pitcher for the Pampa Daily News playground ball team three years ago. He was one of the strikeout kings of the league. in JPort Worth, the bespectacled hufler for the Union Bank and Tryst team, holds the Major City league strikeout record at 14.

Tulsa at Oklahoma City, night. Houston at Galveston, night. Beaumont at San Antonio, night. When Uncle Jake Atz took charge of the Galveston Buccaneers a few days' ago, fans were happy to see the veteran actively in the game again but were inclined to sympathize with him over his lot. The floundering Pirates, in sev- enth place, certainly offered no vistas to Uncle Jake. But to confound the experts and surprise even his staunchest admirers, Jakie gave his nine a good talking-to and awoke today to find himself the talk of tho league after the Bucs trimmed the league-leading Houston Buffs in decisive fashion-yesterday, 6-4. Besides the feat of trimming the leaders, the Pirates gloated over their first victory of the season over their hottest rivals. The Galveston team was outhit, 10 to 8, but five hits and three walks in the fifth inning gave them all their runs, plenty to win the ball game. As Uncle Jake basked in tho light of his reflected glory, the Dallas BABE HERSELF ADMITS SHE WlLL WIN MUG DALLAS. June 1.

If they could trim Fort Worth again as they did last night, 8-6, and Uncle Jake's boys could turn the trick over Houston again, they would be leading the league. Showing they had a punch when needed, the Mavericks were one run behind until the seventh, when Jim Stroner, member of Dallas' "murderers' row," connected for a home run with two on the paths.

Cleveland In Third Place After Winning 5th Straight Dodgers Hand Giants Another 4-3 Setback (By The Associated Pross) Those Indians from Cleveland arc on the warpath. Tomahawks swinging, they're hot on the trail of the American league's leading and most highly- priced scalps—the New York Yankees and Boston's million dollar Red Sox. Pulling up from fifth to third place last week, the tribe camped today only half a game back of the Sox, after stretching its winning streak to five straight with a 7-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox yesterday. The Indians' surprising showing in the last several days, particularly in a -'generally-better performance record by the Cleveland pitchers, was .climaxed yesterday by a whole landslide of surprises all down line in both leagues. For instance, in the American, the hapless St. Louis Browns upset the Detroit Tigers 11-10 for the third hero's role at bat, made it three out of four in a week over the supposedly mighty Red Sox with a 5-4 triumph. Rounding out the day for the league, Pete Appleton, in a, six-inning relief trick, outpltched three members of Connie Mack's up-and-down Athletics hurling staff for a 6-4 win by Washington. The unexpected was even more marked in the National league. The daffiness boys from Brooklyn handed Bill Terry's Giants, who seem to be cracking as expected, a 4-3 setback, their third straight at the Dodger's hands; the Boston Bees, alter taking four losses on the chin from the Phillies, turned on the heat and came through with a 6-5 win in 11 innings; Dizzy Dean was slugged just as hard anc} • came through (}-7 in a 12-frame jjhrUler, and the Cubs on the strength of Ethan Allen's firnely single in the tenth to score th£ winding run, outlasted the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-7. The sudden form reversal of the Cleveland pitchers In the last COLLEGE TRACK FAVORED TO STARS NOT WIN OLYMPICS By HUGH S. FULLERTON, Jr. Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, June 1. (XP)—After the records of the leading intercollegiate track carnivals of 1936 have been duly surveyed, it is apparent that only a few of the undergraduates and the boys who get their diplomas this month are like-; ly to cut much of a figure in the Olympic trials in July. Ohio State's great Jesse Owens, Don Lash, the sturdy Indiana mile and two-mile runner, Archie Williams of California, Jim Levy of Stanford, Forest (Spec) Towns of Georgia and Eddie O'Brien of Syracuse were the standouts in the major college meets this spring, all of which served as preliminary Olympic tryouts. They all are likely to do well in competition against the more experienced club stars but the rank and file of collegiate winners didn't give any signs of being ready for international competition. Another half dozen or so are regarded as Olympic material on the basis of past performances. Comparisons are difficuHt, because of the fact that Saturday's intercollegiate A. A. A. A. meet at Philadelphia was run on a metric basis for the last time while yards and miles were used in the other principal meets. The recapitulation shows far western athletes turning in the best performances in four of seven events and the big ten in two while the east led only in the hammer throw, week along with generally better fielding rank as the most likely reason for the tribe's big push. In the five-game streak they have yielded a total of only 38 hits while the Indians were collecting nearly twice as many. Mel Harder came through with a nine-hit performance yesterday as the Indians fell on Verhon eJZnnedy, who won his np-hit-no-run fame at their expense a yea'r ago, and shelled him 1'or 13 siiftles.' an event not included in most of the programs. Omitting the I. C. 4-A times over the metric routes, western conference runners turned in the best times in six of the nine running events with the coast taking two and the southeastern conference one. The best performances of the Pacific coast, Big Ten, Southeastern conference and Southern conference meets follow. Shot put—50 ft. 9 ! >'i in—Coast- Reynolds, Stanford.

Little Road Runners Are Defeated Iin Ninth Inning Five runs in the first half of the ninth inning yesterday gave the Indians a 13 to 8 victory over the Little Road Runners. In other Panhandle Junior league baseball games, the Borger Christians, new name For the Centennial Elves, came from behind in the seventh inning to score 8 itins and trounce the Phillips 66 crew on the Texas Elf diamond 12 to 4. In a third league game the Hoover juniors were taking 14 to 3 shellacking from the Magnolia Peewees. The game played on the Hoover diamond was close until the Peewees pulled definitely away in the sixth innhrg. During the first half of the game the difference in the scores was never more than 2 runs, although the Peewees led throughout the contest. Amos Reed hurled for Manager Roy Marshall's Peewees and Doyle Aulds was behind the bat. Claude Helskell pitched the last two innings and fanned the last two men to face him for a total of four strikeouts. Hits were collected as follows: Hoover—Hogan 1, Coivin 1, Turcotte, double and single; A. Lewis, 2 singles; Maddox, 1; Peewees—G. Heiskcll 1, Buckingham 3, C. Heiskell, two doubles, triple and two singles; Mills, double; Aulds, 2 singles; Rafferty, single; Cassada, 2 singles; Reed 2 singles; Dull, single. Hoover used Maddox and Cole on the mount with Turcotte receiving. Neither team made as many errors as usual. The most exciting tilt in the loop yesterday was undoubtedly the Little Road Runner-Indian battle. The score was tied 8-all at the opening of the 9th when the bats of the Indians began to hit the offerings of the Road Runner pitcher. In the Indians' lineup wove Maples rf, Nash ss, Heiskell Ib, Hassell sf, Forman 2b, Clayton White 3b, Johnny Goes If, Clinton Adair p, and Glenn Moore c. The Little Road Runner lineup included A. C. Miller and Paul Montgomery pitchers, Cunningham c, Bailey Ib, Hubert 2b, Nicholson 3b, McGahey ss, Keyser If, Boying- tcn cf and Heard rf. A. C. Miller went like a house alire in the first live innings, striking out 8 men. He was relieved by Montgomery in the 7th. Before the Indians went on their scoring spree in the ninth inning, Montgomery was quickly retiring the side. There were two outs. The change for the worse came when Keyser dropped a fly in the field, and before the bird boys could throw on the brakes 'the visitors had scored five runs. Most of the Indians have been out of high school one or more years. All members of the Junior league must be 17 years old and under. About 150 persons saw the Borgans come from behind in the 7th with an 8-run rally to beat the 66 crew. Dillon, Borger pitcher allowed four hits, and Turner, Cox and Esslinger, Phillips hurlers gave up 11 hits. Turner was hit seven times until he was replaced by Cox in the seventh. Ben Day and Taylor were out of tho Phillips lineup and they were replaced by Jon Isbell and Louis Roberson. Two of tho Peewees were also out of the lineup yesterday. Billy Morrow has moved to Bartlesvillc, Okla., and Grover (Speedy) Foster did not play yesterday, but will be ready for the next game. The lineups for the Phillips-Borger game: Phillips—Vanderberg 2b, Moddrell rf, Esslinger cf, N. Cox p, Keil c, Turner p, Haughwout 3b, Hall ss-3b, Roberts If, Enochs c, S. Cox, Dewey ss-lb.

Texas Elf Beats llteJ[12To7 The Texas Elf" ball club took a 12 to 1 game from Shell Petroleum MINERAL WELLS, June 1. (/?)— The championship of the West Texas Golf association belonged today to Morris Norton, Wichita Falls sharpshooter. Norton took the measure of Charles Reasor of Electra, one up. In the finals yesterday after a rather shaky start. . He was three down at an early stage of the 36-hole match but rallied to shoot par golf most of the way and slip past Reasor. The finals match was more or less anti-clirhatic, as the semi-final tjlt between Norton and Jimmy Walkup of Fort Worth easily had the greatest golf seen in this section in years. Norton was forced to beat the course record with a fine 67 to defeat Walkup, who was but one stroke behind and tied the old record. yesterday afternoon at Shell diamond. Rawlins, Texas Elf hurler, had 17 strikeouts to his credit. Geer was behind the bat. Ossling and Oiler worked for the losers. The carbon black boys hit the ball hard and often and kept OssjUng in constant trouble. Rawlins was hit freely in several innings but managed to pull hipiself out of trouble via the strikeout route.

PHILADELPHIA, .Tune 1, (AP) —Barring an unheaval In form, Australia today appears as good as in the intcr-zonc final of thp Davis Cup tennis competition. The Aussies move into the fintil day of the American zone series leading Uncle Sam's hapless forces 2 to 1 with the prospect that they will complete their conquest' whqn the veteran Jack Crawford takes the court against Wilrher Allison, the American champion, in the first match. The series Will wind up with Adrain Quist opposing Don Budge of Oakland, Calif. The American doubles teani of Budge and Gene Mako had their chance to make the score 2-1 in Uncle Sam's favor yester'day against Crawford and Quist, but Mako's wildness at two critical stages spoiled that chance. Mako passed an easy smash In the 10th game of the fourth riefr to put the United States one point short of victory, and committed three serious errors in the seventh frame of the final set, all Of which virtually handed the match to the Wimbledton title holders, 4-G, 2-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-4. For the first two sets, the 2£year old Crawford himself was' erratic but, as he has demonstrated before, he's a great player when the chips arc down. Seemingly; headed for a straight set defeat by Budg-e Saturday, he snapped. out of it and forced the Californian to five sets before losing. .,, Although stroking as beautifully • as ever, he 'missed shots badly yesterday until he and Quist appeared on the brink of defeat. He rallied his service, sharpened lilff volleying and carried the fight to the Americans. When Mako and Budge,'too, blew up in the final set, that was all Aussies needed and they closed out by winning 12 of the last 13 points Because of his amazing recuperative powers, Crawford is the 1 choice over Allison today.
