TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE ie r 193$ (THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texaa PAGE ENID BEATS ROAD RDNNERS 3-0; DECIDING GAME TO DE ON FRIDAY NIGHT Ridin' To Happy Landin' ROAD RUNNERS LAX IN SUPPORTING LEE DANEY Road Runner stars of last sca- . .fon turned on their former teammates last night to be responsible for the Eason Oiler's 3 to 0 win over the birds in the fourth game of a five game series. The deciding game will be played here on Friday night at 8:30 o'clock. Dallas Patton, Tank Horton and John Glowers were the big noises in the ttason victory. Patton connected for a single and double. Horton doubled to score the first Oiler run and he scored when Glowers singled and made second on an error. Statistically, the Oilers have the better of the four game argument although the count now stands at two-all in wins and losses. The Oil- ers Won the opening game in Enid, 5 to 0. The birds took the second encounter, 3 to 2. Pampa jumped into a lead' with a 3 to 0 win Sunday afternoon but last night the score was reversed and the count tied again, Score In 7th lice Dahey pitched great ball for six innings, allowing the mighty Oilers only three scattered bingles. The Road Runners had gotten to Glowers for five hits in the same period. After fanning the first batter in the seventh, Daney allowed Gllchirst and Horton to double in succession, Horton's 2-bagger scored Gilchrist. Glowers beat out an infield hit ana Daney, who fielded the ball,' thew it away in a futile attempt to get the Enid hurler. Horton scored before Cox could re- cover'the throw. The other Enid run was scored in the eighth on a single by Willingham and Bates' double. Sam Gray relieved Daney in the ninth and allowed 'two hits but no runs. Enid threatened in the second inning when Sloan opened the inning with a triple. Gray bore down and got by-without a run being scored. The Road Runners threatened in the second, third, fourth and seventh innings but failed to push across a run when fast fielding, poor base running, or double plays, ruined their chances. Cox Pulls Thriller Although the birds lost the game, they produced the most spectacular play of the season. Cox, elongated first baseman, put the large crowd on'its feet when he went deep behind first base, running .with the ball, and reached out his big mitt to snag Urfoan's hit and retire the side, leaving a man stranded on third. Bates, Enid leftfielder, pulled one for "'the books when he raced from short left field to snare McNabb's long drive with his back against the fence. Fans were still wondering this' morning how Bates reached the fence ahead of the ball. Sam Hale, Road Runner manager, and' Dallas Patton, Enid right fielder "and a former Road Runner, tangled, ,for hitting honors with a pair or, doubles each. Sloan hit a single and triple. Each- team displayed sensational fielding gems at times. Two double plays pulled the Road Runners qut of 'trouble and Enid also saved scores with a pair of snappy two- way outs. Game On Friday Friday night's game should pack the. grandstand at Road Runner park. Neither manager would announce a starting pitcher. Carl Stewart might be Manager Sam Hale's choice of the peppery little Hale might come back with Ledford, who subdued the Oilers Sunday 1 'afternoon. Enid plays in Amarillo tonight and in Borger Wednesday and Thursday!, nights.. Manager Nick Urban's choice will depend on how many chunkers he has to use in the three games away from here. The Enid club will headquarter in Pampa, driving to Amarillo and Borger for their games.

Fort Worth at San Antonio (night). Oklahoma City at Houston (night) Tulsa at Galveston (night). Only games scheduled. The Dallas Steers could appreciate Napoleon's retreat from Moscow as they moved homeward today aftei a disastrous southern invasion of the Texas league. Still kings of the loop, but by the paper-thin margin of one game, the Steers nervously watched the rocket-like climb of the Beaumont Shippers, who only last week shoved Houston out of second position. George Gill, -Beaumont right- hander, silenced the erstwhile booming bats of the Steers in a game at the port city 'last night. The score was 4 to 0. Gill allowed six hits. Curt Fullerton, with seven consecutive wins behind him, gave up only eight hits but they came Cullenbine rifled one over the fence with one on in the eighth. The Houston Buffaloes, meanwhile, were finding much satisfaction in nosing out Oklahoma City, 8 to 7, in a catch-as-catch-can battle which lifted the Buffs into third place again. Not long ago the Buffs were leading the league, but their descent .was swift. As late as yesterday they were in fifth place. Jimmie McLeod has played ball three years in this league. Last night he got his first homer and with it came in two runs to give Galveston a victory over Tulsa's Oilers, 5 to 3. Tulsa got its three runs in the third when Babe Howell and Stan Schino hit home runs. In every other inning Joe Gibbs blanked the visiting Tulsans. Fort Worth's Cats took a well- played game from San Antonio, 3 jo 2. Hal Wiltse fork-handed pitches went for only nine hits while Ash Hillin for San Antonio granted 13. Wiltse won his own game with a single to center in the eleventh nning. Hopkins Takes 21 to 4 Rout The Hopkins ball team wore out ;hree Kingsmlll hurlers Sunday afternoon with a 21 to 4 victory on the Kingsmill diamond. . Lane Guthrie was stingy with his mse hits as he went the full nine ninngs. His brother, L-una Guthrie, was behind 'the bat. Bones" started on the mound for Kingsmill and asted five innings. Sherman Morgan went three innings and Cody 'inished the .game. M. Morgan was on the receiving end. ' 7. "., : Hop.kins gathered 18 hits "off the ihree pitchers, one a home run by R. Parker. King-smill could :get to Guthrie for only five safe bingles, one going lor the circuit when R. scored two runners ahead ALL GAMES WILL Two games between negro ball clubs will be played hero this week.

PAUL MJCKELSON Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, June 16. (/[>)— John McKinley of Chicago joined the Associated hole-in-one club with 68 others this week but got stung for his achievement. As John saw the little pellet drop into the cup on the 13th hole, a 175 yarder, at Westgate Country club, he ran to the green. As he bent over with pride to the ball, a bee stung him so severely on the leg that he had some difficulty getting back to the clubhouse. Howie Roberts, wise-cracking philosopher of the Chicago Daily News, reported McKinley found a hole-in-one a "risky beesness." With 69 new. aces reported, the membership in the National Hole- In-One club reached 595 this week. New Hampshire joined when W. R. Rice of Claremont dropped his tee shot on the 130-yard 15th hole at Newport, leaving only Idaho and Nevada golfers still to report. Texas reported three more to run its leading- total to 67, but California, catching up daily, was in second place and running strong with 42. In the inter-city race for aces, Indianapolis turned in three new members to take the lead with 19 as against 17 each for Dallas and Fort Worth, the runners-up. Tom Smith of East Orange, N. J., shot the longest ace of the week, scoring one on the 280-yard fourth at the Colonial Country club, East Orange. Other new members to report included: Don Schumacher, Dallas, llth hole, 135 yards, Glen Lakes. (Second ace of year). R. E. Hendricks, Fort Worth, 6th hole, 166 yards, Colonial C. C. (Second ace of year). Eddie Connor, Dallas, 16th hole, 155 yards, Glen Lakes C. C. I. P.-. McClure, Dallas, 7th hole, 145 yards, Glen Lakes C. C.

Wimpy Hays was in -rare form in holding the churchmen scoreless. Ray was behind the bat. Glazebrook worked hard for the Baptists but was unable to silence the big guns of the Skelly batting order. •>• ' ' >• " Reacl "The News Want-Ads. BY FELIX R. MCKNIGHT, Associated Press Sports Writer. DALLAS, June 16 (/P)—Mr. Maxl- millian Baer, who wearied of farming after the camero boys wearied of snapping him astride a milking stool, will devote three evenings of his crowded "comeback" routine to Texans . . . "Comeback" fans may see him at San Antonio, Tyler, and Dallas. The former butcher boy who night-clubbed his way off the heavyweight throne, fights in San Antonio the evening of June 22, Tyler June 23, and Dallas, July 2 ... His huskier but younger brother, Buddy does six rounds on all the cards. The Bacr boys fear no one . . , or vice versa . . . they told Promoter Godby Acker of Tyler they carec but little who he obtained to face them in Tyler . . . Plans were immediately laid to put Tom Beaupre the Dallas sensation, and George Brown, the Houston slugger, into the ring with the brothers . . . Dick Griffin, Dallas promoter who holds the strings on Beaupre's mittens says, however, he doesn't like a Baei match — Buddy or Maxie—for his protege at this time. Griffin, doing the Dallas promoting, is angling for Tony Cancela to meet Maxie. Lee (Hole-In-Onei Hubby of Big Spring, whose feat of dropping three aces in one year was publicized by the Associated Press, is getting fan mail . . . Some of which ho doesn't know how to answer . . . One recent letter asked for explicit information as to what club he used, how lie held it, how he plays directly for the hole, etc. Houston baseball fans, urged on by the chamber of commerce, have designated Wednesday night as "Ira Smith night" in honor of the aging Buff skipper . . . Fans figure his fine relief work on the mound, plus heady handling of the club, is responsible for the good showing. -»Sports Roundup BY EDDIE BRIETZ, Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK, June 16 (IV)— Fight special: Joe Louis will lick Max Schmeling at the Yankee stadium Thursday night and will immediately sign to meet James J. Braddock for the world's heavyweight title in September ... If you have any doubt that you can get all the 3 to 1 money you want at a dozen Broadway spots . . . chances are it will be 4 to 1 by Thursday. It is this corner's guess Joe will administer the old sleep producer within five rounds ... If we had to bet on it, we'd take the fourth . . . It is our personal opinion Joe can pick his round after that. Schmeling looks just fair . . . They says he is as good as ever . . . But as Cousin Paul Mickelson of the AMS points out, that ain't good enough . . . Max is older and slower . . He's easy to hit ... Even such clods as Heinz Kohlhaas had no ;rouble landing right hand belts dur- ng the Napanoch traing season . . . 3chmeling thinks he has discovered Louis' weakness, but you can forget about that . . . Joe hasn't any. Max has a lot to shoot for ... If ic beats Louis and then goes on to •ecapture the title from BrBaddock, iitler will do everything but make film grand vizer . . . He'll create a ipecial cabinet portfolio for Max, jutting him in charge of all sports n Germany . . . That wouldn't be mlf bad for a lad who was just a Ighter's second less than a dozen years ago.

PANHANDLE INSURANCE AGENCY IfefM Indians, Lagging By Nine Games, Are Facing Shakeup Radical Changes Are Threatened••:by . Bradley By HUGH S. FULLERTON, Jr. Associated Press Sports Writer While ; the National league seem.* to be pretty well resigned to a two- club i-ace with the Cardinals and Cubs in the leading roles, and with the Giants and Pirates acting as dangerous pursuers, the clubs in the American outfit are taking desperate steps to keep their contesl a close one. Even though the ability of the Yankees to stay in front is doubted and the Red Sox haven't performed up to expectations. The efforts especially at Cleveland, are becoming rather frantic. Always a tough spot for managers and players who couldn't produce, the lake fronl city is on the verge of anothei shakeup unless the Indians begin to improve their position. They are now In fouth place, nine games behind, the Yankees and trailing the world-champion Tigers by a half game. As they returned home from a painful eastern tour last night President Alva Bradley threatenec some "radical changes" unless a change for the better was made That apparently didn't concern Manager Steve O'Neill, for C. C Slapnlcka, Bradley's assistant, commented: 'More Spirit Needed' "Apparently a player is a fighter or he isn't and nothing Steve can do will change his nature. If the present Indians can't show more spirit we'll have to get some players who can." A couple of changes in the lineup were due today as the Tribe openec a scries with the Yankees, but not because of dissatisfaction. Ha Trosky, homo run hitting first sacker, was laid on the shelf for a week because of a bruised shin and Billy Sullivan, the clouting young catcher, shifted to first. In addition Bruce Campbell, just recovered from hit, third attack of spinal meningitis was due to return to the lineup. With the deadline for interclub irading- past, without any important last minutes developments, the Indians and all other clubs will have to look to the minors for any new material they need. Despite the usual blast of the trade winds just before the June 15 limit, the only recent deals of importance were the swap of Ben Chapman for Jake Powell between the Yankees and Senators and the Boston-Washington trade of Joe Cascarella lor Jack Russell. The Yanks and Senators, both needing- pitchers more than out- 'ielders, won't be benefitted materially by their deal but there's a chance Russell will be just what .he doctor ordered for the Red Sockers. In Lefty Grove and Wes Ferrell, supported by Johnny Mar- jum and Fritz Ostermueller, the Yawkeymen have had a fairly re- iable staff of starting flingers, but vhen it came to relief work they've had to call upon that quartet for dependable results. And that's just vhere Russell shines. GRID LINEUP READY SEATTLE fAP)— Jimmy Phelan, rid coach at the University of Washington, lias already selected is starting- lineup for the opening ame here next rail, when the Huskies tackle the Gophers of Minnesota, undefeated for three ears. Ten veterans are to be- in the fray, witn one sophomore, ccording to Phelan's plans. -«_ 7 NORWEGIANS KILLED OSLO, Norway, June 16 (/P)—Seven ersons, all Norwegians, were killed oday when an airplane crashed in- o a mountain at Sognefjord and urned. ID HURT EITE UNK CROWD WILL NOT BE AS BIG AS JACOBS EXPECTED NEW YORK, June IB (/PI—Overconfidence may not affect the ability of Joe Louis to make relatively short work of Max Schmeling in their 15- round heavyweight match in the Yankee stadium this Thursday night but It has, relatively speaking, struck a blow at the gate receipts. With the advance sale today going beyond the half-million mark, there is no danger of any of the parties involved losing money, but the "gate" is likely to fall considerably short of the goal of a million. Even with a belated rush for the box offices the appregatc is unlikely to exceed $750,000, which means that Louis and Schmeling each may have to be satisfied with a paltry $200,000 for their efforts to entertain anywhere from 60,000 to 70,000 onlookers. Until the public rush developed an unexpected million dollar "gate" for the Louis-Baer fight last September, the first since depression days, anything like a half million dollars seemed just a dream to promoters The punching power in the fists of Louis set the new boom going, revived box office confidence and made the business "million dollar conscious." Originally Promoter Mike Jacob; scaled the stadium to handle a $1,250,000 house, at $40 top, for the Louis-Schmeling bout. The least of Mike's difficulties involved the dis- postal of the highest priced tickets. It's the apathy of the $5 and $10 customers that lias affected the advance sale. Published reports of a Jewish boycott of the fight, because Schmeling represents Nazi Germany, persists despite denials. The New York World- Telegram said business houses havu been circularized with appeals to refrain from patronizing the bout. To Jc<3 (Jacobs, Jewish manager of Schmeling, this is "all very silly." Unless the so-called wise money s being kept under cover, the fight vill be marked by less wagering ,han any big heavyweight bout in years. They have been quoting even money that Schmeling docs not last over five rounds. With training camp activities winding up today, for both principals, the only development of possible consequence is an injury to Schmeling's right eye. The acci- ient, minimized by the German's landlers and himself, nevertheless las not created any extra enthusiasm for Max's chances. Schmeling already is handicapped enough, in age, speed, and punching power. The only hope for a surprise, so ar as Schmeling is concerned, is hat he will connect his strong right land early enough to upset the 3rown rram. Louis and find out, at least, whether he negro can "take it." The prob- ,ble answer is that Joe can "take" nything the German has to offer, ncluding his Sunday punch, and till arrange the outcome to suit limself.
