The Danciger hustlers, with Mage Keyser and Fred McGahey absent, ground Mc's Pirates of LsFors into the dust of Shaw park for a 16 to 3 triumph. The Pirates who probably have learned that they can't play baseball unless they practice, did not, look look as good as'they did a week ago. Potentially, they ore as strong as any team In the league, but they have skipped sufficient working out during the week. Over at Borger the Hoover lads ran Into trouble again and lost another game. The Christians spanked the visitors 12 to 3 and sent them home. Hoover is firmly entrenched In the cellar of the loop. Details of the game were not available.

Rams Eke Out 10-9 Win Over Texas Elf Nine A stolen base and a long single in the eleventh inning gave the Pampa Rams a 10 to 9 win over Texas Elf yesterday afternoon on Ram field north of Pampa. Lynch, first batter, walked. The next two batters went out but Lynch stole second to get in scoring position.

The two Sunoco hurlers had 12 strikeouts, many of them coming at opportune times. Hargls and Higgins divided catching duties. The Guthrie brothers, Lane on the mound and Luna behind the plate, went the distance. Errors in the pinches c:st the Hopkins hurlers several runs. .^K. TOURNEY STORES DALLAS, June 22. (/P)—Paced by Mrs. E. H. Wohlfahrt, Dallas star and, defending champion, a small but excellent field started qualifying play today in the Texas Women's Municipal Golf association tournament at Tenison park. EATON UP THE LINKS A MAIN THREAT IN -SINCE HE LAST CKL.AHOHAN WON Hl$ RUST MAJO% M££T WHEN HE &A&&ED THE ILLINOIS OPEN 'FROM A HIS r/MAL HOUND OF ^ IUA$ VXDER PAKAHD A HOLE //v twc / ON THE /Ofd HE IN THE MARION 1LEY FACES PERIL IN DEFENDING GOLF TITLE By LOUDON KELLY Associated Press Sports Writer DENVER, June 22. (fl 3 )—Marion Miley, Lexington, Ky., brunette with a boyish bob, faces peril from several quarters in defending her women's Trans-Mississippi golf title this week—and the champion readily admitted it today. "I've thought of at least eight girls here who will be awfully hard to beat," she said with a smile, "and that isn't counting the dark horses. The field is much faster than it was in the Transmississippi last year." Miss Miley's clubs 'swung only ever the practice spaces today as the rest of the field battled over the 18-hole stretcn at the Denver. Country club for the 31 places in the championship flight. She was not required to qualify. Miss Miley, daughter of Fred Miley, Lexington professional, predicted "about 88" would be enough to qualify. Women's par is 79. Asked whom she regarded as her most 'dangerous opponents', Miss Miley named Patty Berg, chunky Minneapolis redhead; Dorothy Traung, San Francisco; Beatrice Barrett, pretty Minneaplis youngster, who was a semi-finalist in the women's national last year, and Phyllis Buchanan, Denver, Trans champion in 1933, "to mention a few." A total of 121 starters were on the official books as the qualifying shooting began at 7:45 a. m. Today's 31 low scorers will be placed with Miss Miley in the titular bracket with match play starting tomorrow. Other contestants will be stationed in lesser flights, on a basis of comparative medals. All play will be over 18 holes until the championship finals Saturday, which will go 36 holes. Mrs. Dan Chandler of Dallas smashed three tee sots for 700 yards, averaging better than 233 yards, to win the driving contest yesterday. Ralph Guldahl Is Western Open Golf Champion DAVENPORT, la., June 22 (/P)— The golfine trade can forget all 1 about that little putt Ralph Guldahl "blew" in the 1933 National open golf battle and remember instead a spectacular round of 64 strokes that made him the 1936 Western open champion. The 25-year-old professional, who has been without a club connection recently, won his first western and major title yesterday with a courageous and spectacular finish. His final round, 33-31—64, gave him a 72 hole total of 274, surpassed only by Tommy Armour's tournament record of 273 at Milwaukee in 1929. u STEERS COMMIT FOUR ERRORS, SHIPPERS ONE GAMES IN WEEK-END WILL BE PLAYED IN DUNCAN The Pampa-Danciger Road Runners face a hard week of competition, with only one game on the home diamond. The Birds will start their series here on Wednesday night at 8:30 o'clock when they 'face Phillips of LeFors for the first time this season. The Phillips aggregation sprang from oblivion lo prominence in one jump. On Friday night. Manager Sam Hale will take his birds to Amarillo for what might bo the last game of the season between the two clubs. Inability to get together on game percentages nns cropped up. The Road Runners will not play in Amarillo for a. smaller percentage than they give the Parrots here. Duncan, Okla., fans will see tho Road Runners in action on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, in games with the Halliburton Cementcrs of that city. The Cc- menters came from behind in the ninth inning to defeat the Birds here last month. Manager Hale and his beys will leave for Duncan early Saturday morning. Business Manager Harold Miller has scheduled games with a team from Houston, the Phillips GG club of Oklahoma City, and Perrylon. Houston and Oklahoma City teams will play here. The Birds will go to Perryton. All will be played early in July. Wednesday night's game will be a "ladles game" when n woman will be> admitted free; when accompanied by :i nutle escort.

Houston at Oklahoma City, night. The Beaumont Exporters, hustling young team from South Texas clung tenaciously to their slendei Texas league lead today after trimming the former pacers, the Dallas Steers, 6-4 yesterday to win the series two games to one. In a ragged exhibition under wilting heat, the Steers committed four errors, donating three tallies to the opposition. Beaumont, however, returned the gracious gesture with an error which gave Dallas three runs in the sixth. The generally loose play was reflected in the pitching. The bally- liooed tilt between Fullerton ol Dallas and George Gill failed to materialize and both had to be relieved. Houston and Tulsa played two thrilling contests which Tulsa took to gain valuable percentage points. Bernie Cobb's single with the bases loaded in the ninth gave the Oilers the winning run in the 3-2 game. The second was tied in the eighth at 5-5 when Bobby Allaire's single scored Hal Patchett to provide the victory margin. Oklahoma City, last year's chain pion and now hot on the heels o the leaders in third place, took twi games from the seventh-place Galveston Buccaneers, 6-5 and 4-3. The Fort Worth Panthers took their series with the San Antonic Missions by winning the finale, 14 to 12, with their most blistering offense of the season. Eighteen hits rolled off the cudgels of the Cats, with Sheely, English, Brittain and Moser gitting three apiece. Storm Forces Postponement Offlplf Meet HOYLAKE, Eng., June 22, OP)— A terrific thunderstorm today forced oostponement of qualifying round olay in the British open golf championship. The storm broke after Henry Cotton, British ace and 1934 champion had posted a 67 over the Wallasey course, breaking the course record '•>y one stroke. This great performance, as well -.s all other scores turned in before he downpour, was cancelled by the urnament committee which ordered a new start tomorrow. POLO GAME AUSTIN, June 22.

Dodgers Stop Cubs Winning Streak With Mungo As Hero Cardinals Defeated Second Straight By Giants BY SID FEDER Associated Press Sports Writer The pell-mell winning streak of the Chicago Cubs, like all good things, has come to an end, but lingering on is the evidence that Mr. Charley Grimm and company is more than ever the outfit to beat in the National League pennant wars. After four other clubs had failed, it took the lowly Brooklyn Dodgers, deep in the cellar, lo stop the Cubs victory run tit 15 straight yesterday, with Van Llngle Mungo cast in the role or Hero. But. with the league-leading Cardinals' pitching staff, except for Dinzy Dean and possibly Roy Parmelee, growing weaker and weaker, the Cubs' 2'.•••-week winning btrc-lch, an:l its accompanying tight hurling and heavy hitting, makes the windy city cloutcrs the pick of the circuit. The Cubs went down fighting yesterday, losing 6-4 in the nightcap of a twin bill on the strength' of two three-run splurges by the Brooklyns, after Curt Davis had turned in a neat 5-hlt pitching job to lake the opener 7-2. By losing the second game, the Cubs missed out on a chance to break into the league lead, for the Cardinals got their ears pinned back by Bill Terry's Giants for the second straight day, dropping a 6-4 decision when i'ravis Jackson's homer with two on .sewed up the New York victory. As it was, the Cubs stayed a half- game back In second place, just .a game in front of the Pittsburgh Pirates, who no.sed out. the Phillies 7-6 In a battle- of homers in which Arky Vauglum hammered out a pair. A homer also decided the other National League game, with Wally Bergcr clubbing the four-bagger to give the Boston Bees their series over tho Reds with a final 3-2 win. The Reds lost not only the game, but their catcher. Ernie Lombards, as well, when a foul tip injured his finger. The Yankees, meantime, were dropping their second straight decision to the supposedly slipping Detroit Tigers, despite Joe Di Maggio's home run. The loss, however, only cut a half-game off the Yanks' five-game American league lead, since the second-place Red Sox could get no better than an even break in their double bill with the cellar-holding St. Louis Browns, who won the nightcap 6-3, after Wes Ferrell turned in the day's best pitching performance in the opener, allowing but Iwo hits in a 3-0 shutout. Detroit's victory over the Yanks boosted the Tiges into a fourth- place tie, as the Cleveland Indians trounced the Senators 8-3 to drop them out of a third-position deadlock. Rounding cut the program, the Athletics, after hearing that their old teammate, Jimmy Dykes, had just resigned as White Sox manager, clouted his Chicago Club 11-5 with an eight-run, seventh- inning uprising which saw the unusual occurrence of a pinch-hitter, in this case Young Chubby Dean, come up twice in the same frame and get two hits.

(/P)—The 1936 crop of collegiate track and field stars looks very good to Avery Brundage, chairman of the American Olympic committee. • Many athletes who competed here Saturday in the 15th annual National Cojlegiate A. A. track and field championship, he believes, have excellent chances of representing Uncle Sam at Berlin this summer. "But they will meet hard competition in the finals in New York July 11-12," he said, "and older, more. experienced performers may be hard to beat."

M'KNIGHT Associated Press Sports Writer DALLAS, June 22. (/I')—Seventeen sections of the state, all seized with the softball disease , start preliminary tournaments soon to weed out the weak before the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation's big final tourney at Austin, August 31-22. . . . The women will ba playing' final matches on the same date at nearby San Antonio. Roger Stokes of San Antonio, association president for years and one of the orginators 12 years ago, reported softball teams as numerous as before—fight Joe Louis backers after a swing cf the state. Sections Inkling elimination jousts for the state meet are Amarillo, Austin, Beaumont, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Laredo, Lubbock, San An- gclo, San Antonio, Tyler, Waco, Winchita Falls and Galvestcn. Find a' team with more hustle and will to win than Dutch Lorbeer's Beaumont youngsters and you've got a winner. . . At Houston recently, with a game tucked away the Exporters watched three Buff runs drift across with two men cut. . . . It cost them a game and a chance to go into first place in the standings. Their reaction? Slick Coffman, the pitcher, jerked in the midst of it, slammed his glove against the clugrut; took one sho? in each hand and drove them into the ground; tcre ct'f his cap and threw it and then settled down to old-fashioned cussing. . . Meanwhile, Catcher Birdie Tebbctts, at the plate, care- fully removed his chost protector, skimmed it to the ground. . . Picked it up and actually gnawed on it. . . That's how bad the club of an average age of 22 hates to lose. . . Which explains their position at the head of the class. This and that: The University of Texas puts its faith in Raymond Ramsey, Simon Alexander, Bill Welch, Jack Fonts and Nelson Munger in the National Intercollegiate golf tournament. . . Ed White, brilliant little Longhorn shotmaker, relinquishes his intercollegiate title this year via gradua- ticn. . . Old Sargu Connally, who did many a mound turn in the American Association, Texas league and American league, is still chunking near Waco. . . He's tops on the Moccly Rambler hurling- corps. . . Red Cecil, Frecport high's on?-man track team, also will do lots of foot- balling at Texas A. and M.. He quashed rumors he would forget football for track.

For live innings Rex Dilbeck held Amarillo to two measly hits. The lefthander mixed a .smoke ball with a change of pace that had the Parrots swinging wild and often.
