During play in the afternoon, GroVer started hitting the 'ball long and true and his faithful putter went to Work. He pulled steadily 'to the front, but had to shoot top gOlf to hold off Johnnie's excellent stick work.

Aside from the fact the North Carolina sharpshooter led the way in the most devastating assault on par in championship stroke competition in the world, Tony was the first player with a mustache to cop the crown. Tony roared down the final 18 holes in 67, five under par for the Baltusrol club links, for a grand total of 282 and nipped- luckless Harry Cooper at the wire by two strokes. Manero's 67, coming after previous rounds of 73, 69, 73, was one of thirty-eight par-cracking performances over a course which had virtually no rough at all. All told, In approximately rounds played during the 480 three- day, 72-hole medal test, par was equalled or broken sixty-two times. There were 24 rounds at par; 15 at 71; 15 at 70; seven at 69 and Menero's great 67—one stroke short of Gene Sarazen's spectacular finishing 66 at Fresh Meadow four ears ago. No fewer than 44 players finned with 299 or better, for the ital which won for Sam Parks Jr., IB 1935 title at Oakmont. Four players emerged with sub- ar aggregates. Manero's .282 shav- J four strokes from the previous merican record of 286 set by hick Evans in 1916 and matched "j years later by Sarazen. It also lowered by a stroke the iritish record of 283 held jointly y Sarazen, Henry Cotton and Aif erry. Harry Cooper's 284, two strokes elow a record that had held good or 20 years, heart-breakingly was ood enough only for second mon- V. It was the second time Cooper ad run second in nine years. He apparently had the 1927 tie clinched when Tommy Ar- nour dropped a 20-foot putt on final green for a tie at 30, nd subsequently lost to the silver- iaired Scot in the play-off. ENID TEAM WILL HERE ON NEXT SUNDAY BE FIRST DOWN -AND THEN SOME BY HARRY GRAYSON NEW YORK.—Glenn Scobey Warner, 65, is seriously considering undergoing a major operation on his eft hip to fit him for his 42d sea- ion of football coaching this fall. The 'operation is made necessary by an accident Warner suffered vhlle hunting in South Carolina 30 years back. Pop has limped for ,he past 10 years as the result of the injury, but it did not start to handicap him severely until two years ago. Warner, now in his old home town, Springville, in western New York, barely is able to walk with ;he aid of a cane. The operation is calculated to put him on the job at Temple University in September n top shape. Going under the knife would prevent Warner, from taking in his hird Olympic Games, something he would regret exceedingly, particularly in view of the fact that his name is being used in connection with two different European tours The Pampa-Dancigcr Road Runners split a doubleheader with the Eason Oilers of Enid, Okla., yesterday afternoon before the largest crowd to see a ball game In Enid this season. The Road Runners lost the first game, 5 to 0, but won the nightcap encounter, 3 to 2. Lee" Daney threw three home run balls in the opening game as the Oilers held the Pampans scoreless. Hugh Willingham, here with Ponca City two years ago, hit a pair of home runs and Dallas Patton, last year a Eoad Runner outfielder, hit the other four-base wallop. Gordon Nell, another Road Runner slugger of past years, was held to a scratch single while Tank Horton, still another Pampan, failed to hit. The Pampa hurler went the entire distance and pitched heads-up jail excepting for the three balls which sailed over the fence. Floyd Lisle was behind the bat. Bednor hurled for the Oilers with Horton catching. With Sam Gray hurling great oall, the Road Runners nosed out the Eason nine in the second game, to 2. Game Poindcxter was behind the bat, Periy went the distance for Enid with Woodruff catching. The Road Runners scored in the first innnig when Summers led off with a single, went to third on Seitz's single from where he scored on Hale's long fly. Two Road Runner counters were registered in 'the fifth. McLary started off with a walk and went to second on Gray's timely single. McLary stole third and scored when McNabb came through with a single which also sent Gray to third from where he scored on an out to win his own ball game. Big Gordon Nell almost broke up the ball game with a home run in the seventh but Gray tightened down and held the Oilers scoreless the rest of the way. The Eason team will be here for games next Sunday afternoon .and Monday night. The three formei Road Runner stars, NelJ, Patton nad Horton, will be with the team Manager Sam Hale will send big Gene Ledford against the Oilers opening game unless he changes his mind. Hale is uncertain about his second choice.

Stout fell from Granville at the start of the start of the Kentucky Derby.

Morrison drew a walk and hit safely on his other three trips to the plate besides hurling air-tight ball all the way. Sheridan was behind the bat. Jordan pitched the full game for Coltexo with Maxey receiving. The loss pulled Coltexo. down to a tie with King Oil for third place and clinched the cleanermen in fourth position. DANCIGER AND BORGANS WIN SUNDAY TILTS Peewees Seek New Pitchers As Old Ones Fail To Show Up; League To Meet The Borger Christians and the Little Road Runners won games in the Panhandle Junior league yesterday. Managers, coaches and other officials of the league will meet at the chamber of commerce rooms in the city hall tonight at 8 o'clock to draft a schedule and to consider other matters affecting the league. Only two players In the Peewee lineup were playing their regular position yesterday as the youngsters wearing the Magnolia uniforms went down 14 to 10 before the Borger onslaught. The Peewees were further handicapped by the absence of both pitchers, Amos Reed and Keg Rafferty. Today Coach Roy Marshall and Manager Howard Buckingham were in the market for pitchers and possibly an outfielder. Interested boys were requested to interview the Peewee leaders. While the Peewees were piling up a total of nine errors, the Iiittle Road Runners were winning another game from Phillips at the 66 diamond. This time the score was 14 to 2, compared with a 25 to 0 count run up in the first game the Danciger boys played with Phillips. That opening tilt went only 7 innings. Some observers saw a greal Improvement in the Phillips crew while others claimed that the rather rough condition of the new Phillips diamond prevented the feathered outfit from running up a big score. Regardless of conditions the score was 14 to 2, and what was fair for one was fair for the other. Paul Montgomery hurled the entire game for the Little Road Run- ers allowing five hits. Turner, Robinson and Cox gave up 11 hits. Paul struck out 8 and the 66 mound men whiffed 6. The score by innings: Road Runners 041 410 400 Phillips 001 100 000 The lineups: Phillips—Keil c Turner p, Dewey 3b, Cox ss, Vanderberg 2b, Haughwout 1, Modrel rf, Hall cf, Robinson If.

The Peewees made four errors in their first Inning against the Borgans who scored 7 of their runs in the first two frames. The Borgans koncked three homers, two triples and three doubles. Supposedly, the best Peewee hitters are the Heiskel brothers, Poster, Dull and Mills, bu they couldn't do anything much with the offerings of Dillon and hi predecessor, Foster who hurled unti the sixth inning. Foster held the Mag boys to two runs. Dillon immediately crammed the bases witl walkers and let in five runs in one inning. Buckingham, Aulcls, Grovei Lee Heiskell and Mills got hits. visitors contracted the error epidemic and made five miscues.

Complaints against violations o the league rule forbidding cursing during the progress of the gam were made against players in botl games yesterday. Strict enforcement of this and the few other rules will be asked in the interest of good sportsmanship. Canadian's Cubs, it Is reported, will be ready to resume play in the league Sunday, and a LeFors team of boys has been organized and will enter the league it was learned this morning. MS SPLIT CURT FULLERTON WINS NINTH VICTORY ON SUNDAY (Dy The Associated Press) TODAY'S SCHEDULE Dallas at Galveston, night game. Fort Worth at Houston, night game. Oklahoma City at Beaumont. Tulsa at San Antonio, night game. Dependent upon a continuation of )resent style of play, it appears the Texas League pennant winner will be a team of fence-busters who are .re supported capably but not in extraordinary fashion by the men on the mound. The leaders of the race, the Dallas Steers and the Houston Buffs, pro- jelled hits with abandon in their little crucial series" of two games, which ended with the Steers taking ,he closing tilt yesterday, 7 to 5, and breaking even on the series. Both matches—the Buffs won Saturday, 12 to 8—were strictly slugging sees, although Curt Fullerton, Dalas veteran, took his ninth victory yesterday. Fullerton's sledding was tough until his mates took up the cudgel with a four-run rally in the seventh which ended the day's scoring. Heartened, Fullerton breczec >n. Charlie English, speedy second- baseman of the Panthers, turnec on his former fellows of the Galveston nine yesterday, leading Fori Worth to a 4 to 3 victory.

The heavy hitter of the Pitts- jurgh Pirates is making that much clear by his stick-work these days. Slow to start, Vaughan has come along fast at the plate in the last four weeks, has pulled up 38 per- fcentage points in less than 21 days, and is now batting just a shade under the .300 mark. Of course, that's still far off the ,385 mark he posted last year to win the title. But consider .his steady, uninterrupted rise since mid-year, while most of the leaders have been falling off sharply, now that the heat is on. Consider, also, that he has been hitting better than .385 since before June 1. Vaughan hit in his 19th straight game yesterday, getting three singles In five times up to set the pace as the Bucs collected 18 hits end clubbed the Phillies 6-2. The victory left the Pirates just one percentage point off third place in the National league standings, since the Chicago Cubs nosed out the Phillies 4-3 behind Curt Davis' tight pitching to maintain their advantage. The Cardinals continued to lead the pack, downing the second place New York Giants 6-3, as Dizzy Dean, the top big-league pitcher, chalked up his llth win, taking the mound with only 48 hours rest. The New York Yankees, meantime, pulled their American legue lead out of the fire and stretched it to 2 H games by outlasting the Cleveland Indians 5-4 in a 16- inning struggle, while the second place Boston Red Sox were losing their jinx hold on the Chicago White Sox and were getting snowed under a 16-hit attack, 13-5, to end their five-game winning streak. The Detroit Tigers, hard-hit by injuries, but still fighting for the world's chapionship, replaced the Indians in third place by staving off the Senators' closing rally, through the able relief pitching of Roxie Lawson in the ninth, to win 10-8. The Boston Bees threw oft the assault of the Cincinnati Reds on the National league's fifth place by coming through with an 8-3 victory, while the St. Louis Browns downed the Athletics 9-5, to move within a game of sending Connie Mack's crew into the American league cellar. At Golf Title SAN ANTONIO, June 8. (/P)—All David (Spec) Goldman of Dallas wants is a couple of rounds like one he fired on the San Antonio Country club course yesterday, and he.thinks he'll take the state amateur tournament this week in stride. Goldman shot the course, scene of the state meet opening Wednesday, in 65, one under the non-competitive record held by Lieut. Ken Rogers, Kelley field star and one of the prime favorites for the title. It was Spec's first tour of the par 72 layout. He collected eight birdies, nine pars and a bogie. Lieut. Rogers, who has been beating par consistently on the course, played in the same foursome with Goldman and shot a 71. BASEBALL STANDINGS TEXAS LEAGUE LEADERS Bettencourt, S.

The consensus immediately following the Suburban was that had Stout given the slightest help to a thprpughljred that is known always to let down when in front, just as his sire was wont to do, there would have been no occasion for the camera decision which went to the 4ryear-old Firethorn. Stout admits he made his move entirely too soon, but blames it on Granville. While rating Granville three lengths off the pace of the leaders in the backstretch, Stout feared his was about to be trapped. When he gave Granville his head to draw out of danger the William Woodward entrant was so full of run he refused to be rated and nothing but a.choking pull could have stopped him. The pace of this premature move, in the opinion of Stout, was directly responsible for Granvil.le's rapid tiring at the end.

B. Martin came to the Plains. Martin, who said he was "ridin" Old Dick and leadnin' Old Didi," followed the U. S. Army colonel's trail on the Llano Estacado in 1886. 'The trail had weathered the storms of only about 11 years then," he recalls, "and the McKenzie expedition was fresh in the memory of many men then living." Martin learned more about Col. Mckenzie's expedition from A. D. Tucker, first sheriff of HaskeU county who now lives at Pecos. 'In his drive from Fort Griffin, Col. McKenzie gathered many mustangs and jaded them by constant driving, thus enabling him to capture them and keep them from falling into the hands of the Indians," Martin related. "He was later forced to kill about 500 that were too weak to make the return drive across 80 miles of desert country. "The horses were shot down on Tule Canyon. Later, early settlers conceived the idea of hauling the bones to the nearest railroad point to be spld for manufacture of fer- a CAPI _<?>tilizer. I saw almost an acre of them, along with cattle and buffalo bones, awaiting shipment from Albany." Troubles beset Col. McKenzie and Gen. Nelson A. Miles, another early-day army explorer, in the region of the Palo Duro Canyon, Martin said. "Col. McKenzie killed his horses on the south side of the Palo Duro," Martin said, "and an excess of wagons had to be burned by Gen. Miles on the northern border of the canyon in order to keep them from coming into possession oif the Indians." Martin, who for years has been a printer here, first traversed the McKenzie Trail when he was 16 years old. Again in 1891 he "traveled as a tourist" in a covered wagon from Haskell to Floydada. "At this date, 80 miles. of the country traversed was a veritable desert," he recalled. The trail had become so dim. he once became lost. His last trip along the route was in' 1914, when he travelled by automobile, but all traces of the old trail were gone. days or so.
