The Dallas Steers were loaders of the Texas league today. The mauling Mavericks eased themselves into the league leadership with a victory over the Port Worth Cats, 7-6, in a game last night at Dallas. Port Worth, deep down in the cellar, piled up a six run lead on the Steers in the first six inniiigs. The Steers then seriously got down to business and pushed over seven runs in the next three. Manager Alex Oaston of the Steers inserted himself as a pinch- hitter in the seventh. He came thru, belting a double that scored Rensa and Tony York with the winning tallies. The resuscitated Galveston Buccaneers, playing winning ball under their new manager, Jakie Atz, helped the Steers into first position by polishing off Houston, erstwhile leaders, 4-2. Two singles, two walks and two errors in the sixth gave the Bucs their four runs. At San Antonio the Alamo city pitchers were having trouble with the Beaumont team, which collected 13 hits and 10 runs, while the Mission batsmen were handcuffed by Gill, who allowed but four hits and were unable to put across a single run. At Oklahoma City the Indians had no trouble in subduing the visiting Tulsa Oilers, 5 to 1. DALLAS, June 3. ffl—The Port Worth, their leader dismissed, today looked about for a new manager to lead them from the lower depths of the Texas league. Long - smouldering dissension, rumored in the last few days, came to a head last night when Business Manager Cecil Coombs announced the dismissal of Manager Harry McCurdy. The -veteran catcher's removal as leader of the Panther pack came after Dallas had defeated the Ciats, 7 to G, in a game at Dallas. The defeat ran the Panthers' losing streak to 11 consecutive games, -within a game of a record the Oats • themselves set earlier in the' season. Outfielder Homer Peel was placed in temporary oliarge of the team, taking over tonight when the Port Worth club opens a three-game series with Oklahoma City. Coombs said the decision to dismiss McCurdy was reached at a directors' meeting Tuesday morn- Ing. President Roy Westbrook, visiting in Galveston, approved the action via telephone. One reason given for the dismissal action was the reported friction between McCurdy and Coombs throughout the season. McCurdy has openly charged interference from Coombs and Coombs frequently has criticized McCurdy's tactics on the playing field. Directors will meet Friday, Coombs said, and may vote to place Peel permanently in charge of the club. -•_ TO RENEW RIVALRY '• IOWA CITY, Iowa, June 3. (/P)— Football rivalry between Iowa and Notre Dame will be renewed in 1939, Ossie Solem, Iowa coach and athletic director, announced today. Solem said he' has signed a two game contract with Elmer Layden, Notre Dame athletic director, for 1939 and 1940. The first game will be at Iowa City Nov. 11, 1939, and the second at South Bend the following year on a date to be set later. t» CANYON BOY EDITOR CANYON, June 3.—Vincent Lockhart, an ex-student of the West Texas State Teachers college is now editor of the Eastern Shore Times at Berlin, Md.

McKNIGflT, DALLAS, June 3 (A-)—Harry Mc! urdy, veteran backstopper, stood relieved of the job of managing Fort Worth's lethargic Panthers today . . Strong rumors, however, made it possible he would again take Up the job of directing the faltering Felines within a few days.

McCUrdy said here he tiad hopes of being reinstated as helmsman of the club which now is seven games deep in the basement. Others liked the chances of Charle English, late of the U. S.

The clouting second baseman is out of the game with an injury but soon will return to the lineup.

Court • • -~ - i. . v Daffy and Dizzy Hav Won Half of All Triumphs By SlD FEfiEfe Associated Press Sports Writer Say what you want about those Dean boy.?—their big-talk and oft- time astonishing antics—but week by week it becomes more apparent (hat as they go, so goes the gas- house gang from St. Louis. Stealing a page from the history of Babe Ruth's heyday with the New York Yankees, Dizzy and Daffy are just about the backbone of the National league leaders right now. Of course, there are such aces as DUcky Medwick, Pepper Martin, Rookie Stu Martin and the others whose batting has been keeping the Cards up there in' the pennant chase, but even they seem to .go better when one or the other of the brothers is in action. To date, the Cardinals have won 28 games. Arid half of these victories' are credited to Paul and 0izzy, yet the Deans represent only orie third of the six starting hurlers Frankle Frisch has on his bench. Paul never looked better than he did for eight and a third innings in a 5-4 victory over the Brooklyn Dodgers yesterday. They got to him finally in the ninth, but by that time his mates had the battle sewed up. in allowing Brooklyn only six hits and one run in eight innings, he was one of the few throwers who weren't belted all over the lot in yesterday's big-time bill. Tommy Bridges, leading the Tigers to a 5-4 win over the Athletics, was the 'only winning hurler to go the route. The Pirates clubbed the Bees for 12 hits in winning 5-4. Washington banged out 15 safeties to trim foui 1 St. Louis Brown hurlers 15-11, although the Brownies held up their end with 19 hits off a pair of pitchers. The White Sox surprised the Yankees 11-9 in a slugfest that saw 30 safe blows, including two homers by Rip Radcliff, rattle all over the field—and outside it. Boston's Red Sox opened up the power and collected 15 nils in taking Cleveland 14-6, despite the fact the Tribe's war clubs also were swinging: and knocked two of the Hub City hurlers off the mound. Even at Cincinnati, where nighttime baseball made a financially successful 1936 debut before 19,173 fans, Al Hollingsworth couldn't last in chalking up his seventh win. He went, well until the ninth, when Chuck Klein's homer led a six-run assault to tic the count until Ivnl Goodman's four-bagger broke it up and gave the Reds a 9-8 win. The Giants-Cubs game at Chicago was postponed. =tt«. Alfred Speaks At Childress CHILDRESS, June 3, (ff)—Governor James V. Allred was on record again today as opposing political interference with the Texas highway department. At a banquet here last night in celebration of the establishment of a highway division office building, the governor said: "I am still opposed to any state candidate or officer of the highway department trying to put the department into politics. I want every employe voting on his own conscience." He asseried that in money expended and mileage of highway constructed, Texas had set an all- time record for the year 1935-36. More than $45,000,000 had been spent and nearly 3,000 miles of all types of roads built or placed under contract, Allred declared, feel that my long established policy of refraining from executive interference in the a ffairs of the department has contributed materially to this efficiency." Bood Manes and J. C. Fritchey of Bristow, Okla., have been given suspended sentences in United States district court now in session in Amarillo. The two men were arrested in Pampa and charged with passing counterfeit money. They entered pleas of guilty. Sentence of Jose M. Owens, 34, of Pampa, charged with forging a postal money order, was deferred. Two other Pampa residents were scheduled to come to trial today charged with violation of the Mann act. Postmaster D. E. Cecil and Gray county officers were witnesses in cases tried yesterday. Fliers Take Tests For License Here Three local fliers and one from Amarillo took tests for licenses while A. W. Meadows of Dallas, department of commerce inspector, was here for the air show. ' George Christopher successfully passed his written examination for a transport pilot license. He will have to complete his flight work at the next visit of the inspector. Virgil Howell received his private pilot license, subject to medical examination, successfully completing his written and flight work. M. B. David, the other local flier, passed his test for a private license and also passed his written work for a limited commercial pilot license. G. L. Smith of Amarillo received a limited commercial license after completing both written and flight work. Inspector Meadows flew here in a department of commerce Kennei WOMEN S GOLF TOURNEY IN OKLAHOMA CITY BEGINS TODAY OKLAHOMA CITY, June 3.

C., and Mrs. Logan Van Zandt of Tulsa, Okla.; Mrs. Leon Solomon of Memphis, Tenn., and Mrs. L. G. Sutler of Tulsa, and other par-baiting players who will need all their skill against each other. With two or three exceptions first round matches were won by comfortable margins. One match went 20 holes, Mrs. E. dent. Julian Davis of Oklahoma City finally defeating Mrs. Tom Wallace of Sapulpa, who had been considered Oklahoma's best title bet. Sparkling play abounded in the first round, with par hanging on the ropes most of the time. Miss Hemphill carded a 37, two under par, going out, and others were at or near par figures for the outward trip. Yesterday also saw the elimination of Mrs. Dave Gaut of Memphis, veteran of 23 southern tourneys and four times champion, and the defeat of Mrs. Sam Israel, Jr., of New Orleans by Mrs. James Phillips of Bartlesville, Okla., in a mild upset.

The sam« two teams will meet at 5:15 o'clock this afternoon on the field a mile north of the city on Hobart .street. Admission Season tickets will will 35 cents, honored. Joe Bower;;, making his first appearance with the locals, played a bang up game. He carried the ball within scoring- distance for the first Pamsa goal and caged the second counter on a solo attempt. Hub Burrows also played a great game, especially in the early chuk- kers. Dr. M. C. Overtoil, Bill Harwell and Jack Cooper were steady, especially in riding off players. Marvin Sherbit, ace of the Blues, was held in check until the third chukker before he could break away. Button Stephenson, the "riding- fool" was also checked still until the last chukker . when he broke away. Bub Crenshaw was steady all the way. Lloyd Phillips was successfully checked thruout the game and he failed to register. The game opened fast, neither team being able to score. Hub Burrows carried the ball fast and true but was blocked on scoring attempts. Crenshaw scored on a solo attempt in the second chukker but the lead was overcome when Bowers carried the ball to near the goal where he passed to Bili Harwell who scored. Sherbit looped one in the third and added a pair in the fourth chukker. Bowers made the only score in the fifth chukker when he took the ball following nice work by Cooper, Burrows and Overtoil. Crenshaw opened early in the sixth chukker against the tiring Pampans. Sherbit added one and Stephenson broke loose for three. Sherbit ended the scoring near the whistle.

AKMOUK BELIEVES IS REAL CHAMP- NOT FLUKE HE BY BOB CAVAGNARO, Associated Press Sporis Writer. SPRINGFIELD, N. J., June 3 (/P) —They're going to stick the king of clubs, Samuel McLaughlin Parks Jr., back in the deck tomorrow and he doesn't expect to be lost in the shuffle before the last deal is made at sundown on Saturday—the finale of the fortieth U. S. Open Golf championship. Parks is not the gambling type of player nor is lie the betting fraternity's choice. li was the same at his native Oakmont course a year ago when he confounded the old guardsmen of the pro ranks 'by shooting 29 to capture the open title —a 100 to 1 shot come through. They called him the fluke charrt^ pion and to this very day point to his unimpressive record through the winter and spring tournament circuit, but while they still hesitate to accept him as one of their own from a shotmaking standpoint virtually every one of the 169 amateurs and pros in pursuit of his title are for Parks the man. Some of them go even ftirther than that. Tommy Armour, one of the craftiest of the oldsters, not only has been capitvated by Parks' bland smile and warm personality, but he's gone for Parks the player and thinks highly of the youthful Pittsburgh pro's chances in the championship. "I was sitting with Emll Loeffler, the Oakmont pro, last June when we learned Sam had shot the first nine of the third round in 36," Armour related. "Loeffler told me Sam would win the tournament, He's a fine boy and a fine prospect. He may not repeat here but you can paste it in your hat he'll win the open again." Parks was disinclined to discuss Ills own chances. He's quite content again to be rated a 100 to 1 shot. He figures that will put the pressure of the highly-regarded choices, Henry Picard and Horton Smith. The general impression here is that the record of 286 created by Charles (Chick) Evans Jr. in 1916 and equalled by Gene Sarazen four years ago may be broken. (Uy The Associated Press) Rip Radcliff, White Sox—Had two homers and single, driving in seven runs in 11-9 victory over Yankees. Paul Waner, Pirates—His pinch- single started two-run winning rally as Bees were defeated 5-4. Tommy Brides, Tigers—Held Athletics to nine hits as Detroit won 5-4.
