The final score Was 8 to 5. Huber scored all runs after two men were out In the seventh. With two away, Polvogt took a fast ball on his leg and was forced from the game. Ledford lost control of the situation for a few minutes and four base hits and an error by McLarry cost the Road Runners five runs. The Birds already had their eight run lead and Ledford came back strong, allowing only one hit in each of the last innings. The big fellow had allowed only three hits up to the seventh. Although the Road Runners got only nine hits, they made them count for eight runs. Good base running and a couple of walks helped the Birds in their scoring sprees. McLarry led the Road Runner attack with a pair of timely doubles. McNabb, who has recovered his hitting eye, lashed out a double, his third in two days, and a single. Seitz had a pair of singles. Spencer, with a single and double, arid Ross with a brace of singles were the Borger hitters. Polvogt and Warren hit doubles. Chody started on the mound for Huber and got by the first two innings with only six men facing him. He got in trouble in the third when Cox opened with a single and McLarry followed with a double to score him. The next three were easy outs. The Birds added two more in the fourth. Seitz opened with a single but was forced at second by Hale. Bailey drew a walk and Lisle was safe on Eash's error. Cox fanned but McLarry again came through with a screaming double to score both runners. Five runs crossed the plate in the sixth. Bailey opened the inning •with his second walk. Lisle singled and Cox was safe on Huffman's error, Bailey scoring. McLarry sac- rifled. Ledford beat out an infield single when first base was left uncovered and Lisle beat Huffman's throw 'home. McNabb crashed out a double and Chody went to the showers with Nash talcing up the hurling assignment. Nash got Summers to pop up to Polvogt but Seitz followed with a single to score two more runs. Hale fanned for the last out. The Huber runs came in the seventh after Warren had fanned and Wilson filed, out to Bailey who made a sensational one-handed catch against the fence. After Pol- vogt was hit, Nash and Simpson followed with singles. McLarry then let Nash's hit get through him and Spencer and Rose followed with singles. Huffman made the last out after the five runs had been scored. Only six batters faced Nash in the last two innings as his fast ball kept zipping across the corners. He threw only two curve balls to the six batters. Ledford pitched airtight ball excepting in the seventh after he hit Polvogt. It was believed that a small bone in the Borger catcher's leg was broken. ^MoNabb and Bailey pulled catches for trie fans. Bailey took a one- handed stab at Wilson's line drive near the left field fence and caught ' the ball as he fell. He held it for the out. McNabb had to race close , to the foul line and gainst the fence to handle Huffman's long drive into right field. The hit was labeled two bases but the fleet McNabb came up with the ball to retire the side. . The Road Runners will leave Friday .morning for Enid, Okla., and Arkansas City, Kan. They will play two games against the Eason OUers in Enid and one game with the Shell Dubbs of Arkansas City.

Di Maggio And Stu Martin Star As Yanks, Cards Win Joe Smashes Triple 0 With The Bases Loaded BY SID FEOEB, Associated Press Staff Writer. Although it's still too early to predict that their managers will love them in September as they did in May and June, the slugging prowess of Yankee Joe Di Maggio and Cardinal Stu Martin appears to have those two youngsters ticketed as the class of the 1936 rookie crop. The manner in which they have been whaling the ball, regardless of who or what the pitching opposition, makes them the talk of both leagues at the end of the first two months of the current pennant chase. Their extra belting has them batting in or around the coveted .400, and has been doing a lot toward keeping the New York Yankees and the Gas House Gang from St. Louis at the top of their respective league heaps. Both have been breaking up ball james with their stickwork more as the rule than the exception. Only yesterday, Di Maggio, who came up From the coast last spring as the most highly publicized rookie in the history of the business; clubbed out a triple with the bases loaded, and a single, also with men on the bags, to break the hearts of the aspiring hicago White Sox and give the Yankees an easy 11-1 win. At the same time, Martin, a product of Asheville, N. C., was hammering out a single and triple to pace the St. Louis larrupers to a 7-3 victory over Brooklyn. Despite these triumphs, however, the two leading clubs were unable to increase their respective league leads, for the second place outfits also were winning their games—the Boston Red Sox downing the Cleve-land Indians 6-2 with a five-run splurge in the seventh, and Hal Schumacher limiting the Chicago Cubs to three hits while his New York Giant mates were making all their runs off Curt Davis in the first inning for a 3-0 win. Meantime, the Boston Bees, with Bob Reis doing an effective job of relief pitching as well as singling liome the winning run in the llth inning, nosed out the Pirates 4-3; the Washington Senators found the joing easy for a 7-4 conquest of the hapless St. Louis Browns, and the supposedly-weak Philadelphia Athletics surprised the world champion Detroit Tigers 11-7, despite homers by Goose Goslin and Ervin Pox. The Phillies and Cincinnati were not scheduled.

(/I'j—Eight sharpshooters, representing a far-flung geographical .setup, teed off today in the quarter-final matches of the 25th an- nau,al Southern Women's golf tournament at the Oklahoma City Country club. The two Carolinas, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Oklahoma still had title candidates following the second round yesterday, but gone from the picture was one of the brightest stars, medalist Mrs. Dan Chandler of Dallas, who went into eclipse on the 22nd green in her match with Mrs. Mark McGarry of St. Petersburg. Still very much in the running, however, were other pre-tournament favorites. Judged on the theory of survival of the fittest, today's matches promise a spicy program. In the upper bracket Mrs. McGarry meets Miss Jane Cothran of Greenville, S. C., and Miss Edna Saenger meets Miss Kathryn Hemphill of Columbia, S. C. in the lower brack Miss Betty Jameson of San Antonio, Tex., meets Miss Dean Van Lancl- ingham of Charlotte, N. C., and Mrs. Leon Solomon of Memphis meets Oklahoma City's lone survivor, Miss Jenny Grout. Only the youthful Miss Jameson escaped jittery moments yesterday. She won as she pleased from Mrs. James Ball of Oklahoma City, 8 and 7. Miss Cothran, one down at the turn, rallied to win over Mrs. R. E. Winger of Ft. Worth, 2 and 1. Miss Saenger was carried to the 19th hole before she could dispose of Mrs. Carl B. Wood of Bartlesville, and Miss Hemphill, all square with Mrs. Logan Van Zandt of Tulsa at nine holes, was forced to turn on the steam to win, 4 and 3. In the lower bracket Miss Van Landingham sank a 30-foot putt on the 18th green because she was "too tired to play another hole," and defeated Mrs. James Phillips of Bartlesville. Mrs. Solomon, with a display of steady golf, eliminated Mrs. L. G. Suiter of Tulsa, 4 and 3, and Miss Grout won over Mrs. E. Julian Davis of Oklahoma City, 5 and 4.

S. OPEN BY FELIX R. MCKNIGHT, Associated Press Sports Writer. DALLAS, June 4 (/P)—Odds on hat British Walker Cup-Texas Cup golf match for Dallas in September :ame tumbling down today . . . Serious consideration is being given the Texas jaunt by John Bull mashic warriors. Henry Gullcn, secretary of the Royal and Ancient Golf association, cabled from London that no definite decision would be made until ull personnel of the British team las been named . . . Centennial officials, sponsors of the exhibition, took British procrastination as a good omen .... The Britons could have snapped a definite "no" to the invitation upon receipt of the cabled message six weeks ago, they point out. If the match is landed, posies may be sent to George Aulbach, Dallas ! ountry club professional . . . It's his idea. Out on the Baitusrol golf course n New Jersey today for the start of he National Open is chunky, red- 'aced Nabholtz, Dallas professional . . His days as one of the nation's 'orcmost campaigners are over . . . He'll not pull a club from his bag during the tourney—but he probably s the most nervous man on the ;rounds. He has a protege on hand and Harry Todd, Texas amateur champion, will not hit a shot that Larry von't see . . . Nabholtz, "coach" of Texas' most promising links hope, ook the youngster under his wing several years ago, helped develop lis powerful, flawless swing . . . ,ast week he struck out with Todd for his first big test . . . It's Larry's lunch that Todd will surprise the jig timers in the medal event and cause so much commotion this summer he may receive a belated invitation to the United States Walker up team. Two other young Dallas amateurs, Jack Munger and Jimmy McGonagill, and Ben Hogan, Port Worth jrofessional, are stabbing at the open title. Few fans know that Acting President Roy J. Koehler of Galveston's Sues recommended the reinstatement of Jack Mealey to President Alvin Gardner of the Texas league after Mealey was suspended for alleged participation in a Houston park disturbance . . . Koehler's ac- ton came soon after he politely "requested" Mealey to resign as manager of the Bucs .... Mealey now is looking for connections . . . He's still a good, fiery catcher and should land a berth with a Texas league club without delay. MAJOR LEAGUE LEADERS (By The Associated Press) National League Batting: Terry, Giants .413; S.

IN THE TEXAS LEAGUE (My Thu Anscidutml I'ri'ss) Today's games: Tulsa at Dallas (night). Oklahoma City at Fort Worth, (night). Houston at Beaumont (day). San Antonio at Galveston, doubleheader (night). Houston's Buffaloes clung a little less securely today to their second- place berth in Texas leaguS standings, the third-place Beaumont Shippers setting them down, 7 to 6, in a close battle at Beaumont yesterday. Ironically, a Houston boy was credited with the victory over the Buffs. Frankie Croucher, second baseman, slammed out four singles which drcve in three runs. In the eighth he smacked out a safety that scored from thiid with the winning run. Herschel Martin tried valiantly to keep Houston in the running, his two homers accounting for three runs. The league-leading Dallas Steers, playing In their own corral, were .strengthening their position with a 5 to 4 win over the Tulsa Oilers. The Steers' practice of hanging up victories by one-run margins probably has set some kind of a record. The struggling San Antonio Missions, three rungs from the cellar, defeated Galveston, 4 to 3. Larry Bettencourt belted a homer with one man on base in the eighth. Bettencourt previously had doubled to bring in two Mission runs. The Fort Worth Cats, under a new leader, snapped their 11-game losing streak with a 7-to-4 victory over the Oklahoma City Indians, league champions. .«. BY, BYE BLACKBIRDS NEW YORK 'fi— Broadway (which is no church mouse itself) found the swing rhythms of three .sidewalks musicians a bit too noisy, what with their singing, dancing ;md playing on the banjo, washword and frying pans at all hours. So the "Broadway Blackbirds" were caged today. Charge: Disorderly conduct. Complainants: Light- sleeping guests of Broadway hotels. MUNGER, EATON TO PACE-SETTERS OF MEET BE BY BOB CAVAGNARO, SPRINGFIELD, N. J., June 4 (XP) — The biggest gamble In sports — the United States Open Golf championship — started today over the links of the staid and storied Baltusrol club with the bookmakers, as usual in this show, sticking out their necks. Bromidic as its sounds, this was one of the widest-open opens in 40 years with at least 20 players ral'ed a good chance to win. All told, there were 168 scheduled starters. The pace setting rates fell to a southwestern pair, Jack Munger. Dallas amateur, and Zell Eaton of. Oklahoma City, a recent recruit to' the pro ranks. The consensus on the final scorn ranged from a record-equalling 286 — the mark set 20 years ago by Chick Evans Jr. and tied in 1932 by Genn Sarazen — to 289. The course, a 6,866 par 72 layout, will yield to good shot making and it's a cinch par will be cracked a-plenty before the wlndup Saturday afternoon. Parks, the cherubic Pittsburgh pro, and Jimmy Braddock of tho links, who staggered experienced. club-swingers at Otvkmont last year by coining through at 50 to 1, didn't teach the bookies much of a lesson because they're quoting him again at the same price. Plenty of putter punters have climbed on board. It's been four years, at least, sincu a ;pre-tournament favorite came through. Sarazen had to shoot the last nine in 31 at Fresh Meadow in 1932 to turn the trick. Since then it has been one "sleeper" after another who ascended the throne. Although his winning streak has been stalled since his 1933 triumph at Augusta and he has done little in practice to warrant it. Sarazen was held even with tall and willowy Henry Picard of Hershey, Pa., favorite," at 8 to 1. Third choice at 21 to 1, Horton Smith of Chicago appeared to belong up there with Picard and Sarazen. Smith is one of the game's most accurate putters and the course, baked and playing fast, is a natural for long drives and sharp-eyed putters. Johnny Revolta, the professional champion, at 15 to 1; Byron Nelson, the sandy-haired Texan, knocked down from 30 to 1 to 18 to 1, and Bobby Cruickshank and Jimmy Thomson, the siege-gun, at 20 to 1 each, were other prime favorites. Walter Hagen, who first won the title 22 years ago, was held at 30 to 1. TEXAS LEAGUE Results Yesterday Houston 6, Beaumont 7. Tulsa 4, Dallas 5. Fort Worth 7, Oklahoma City 4.
