They won the first encounter and had the second game in the sack until the seventh, when they blew up. Yesterday's practice featured infield play.

He has a game scheduled in Amarillo Friday night and games in Duncan, Okla., on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

Please tag him as a definite threat for the trans-Mississippi title. He was tagged three months ago, jut only as a flash in the pan; a big, brawny reformed football player who played into luck on every >t .'. . Now he's a champion and ;he critics are rocking on their heels. Four years ago Skeeters, captain of Southern Methodist's football and basketball teams and an all-Southwest conference tackle, was graduated . . . One year later he put all of his 200 pounds into learning f. ... He announced ready for .ournament play last summer and ifted more than one eye-brow by ;oing to the quarter-finals of the Dallas city tourney . . . Luck, they called it, until this summer. It's recent history how he went out of the city in the semi-finals, one up in 19 holes to Reynolds Smith's three under par golf; lost n the semi-finals of the Corsicana nvitation and the finals of the itate amateur to Don Schumacher . . Meanwhile, he was dumping iiich names as O'Hara Watts (twice) W. B. Long, Jr., Berhard Schriever and David (Spec) Goldman. Last week, the quiet, tobacco- hewing giant wounded par by four trokes to take the medalist honors n the Bivercrest invitation . . . He avenged his defeats from Schunacher by plowing him under, 4 and , in the semi-finals and then went n to defeat Jonny Dawson, dapper ihicagoan, 2 and 1 in the finals . .He was only 18 strokes under iar for the tournament. For the benefit of those who umored Ed White, Walker cup play- r, was in danger of losing his egular spot on the cup team be- ause of inactivity on the links: he popular Bonham youth shat- ered the Colonial country club re- ord at Fort Worth Sunday with 35-33—68. ...

Junior League Games To Be At Pampa, Borger, Hoover CARDINALS INCREASE LEAD AS CUBS LOSE By HUGH S. FULLERTON Associated Press Sports Writer The sports "experts," who have been wrong so often this year that they're developing a special technique in laughing off embarrassing predictions, are beginning to worry about their almost unanimous pre-season forecast that the Boston Bees would finish in the National league cellar. Following the lead of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who broke Chicago's 15-game winning streak Sunday, the Bees whipped the Cubs 5 to 1 yesterday to hang up their sixth victory in eight games. That loss applied the brakes more firmly to Chicago's rush toward the top as the Cardinals otitslugged the Phillies, 8-G, increasing their lead to 1 1-2 games. New York's Yankees likewise increased their lead, whipping the White Sox 9-6 while the Detroit Tigers edged out Boston's Red Sox 8-7 to regain fourth place in the American league standing. The Washington Senators, who had been tied with the Tigers, were rained out at St. Louis while Dusty Rhodes pitched the Athletics to a 4-3 victory over the third- place Cleveland Indians. The National League race tightened up even more when the New York Giants,' trying to come back from fourth place, put on one of their best slugging exhibitions to sink the Pittsburgh Pirates 11 to 5. Cincinnati's Reds maintained their slim fifth-place margin over Boston by trouncing the Dodgers 7 to 3. Rouged Rooters Raise Receipts In Cracker Tilts ATLANTA, June 23, (/P)—Women are whooping it up for baseball in Atlanta. Their attendance without charge at special "ladies' night" games is adding gusto and color to the game and hiking the gate receipts. The male fan is ready to admit that the woman at a bail game can out-yell him anytime. And the woman's cheering, 90 per cent of the time, the observer declares, is for the home team—no matter how poorly the boys may be performing. President Earl Mann of the Atlanta baseball club says the special ladies' night games are having much to do with exceptionally good gate receipts here. Last year the Crackers played at home before 330,000 paying fans for a new Class A attendance record. More than 70,000 women saw games free for a new Atlanta record in this line. Mann says he finds it a paying proposition to let the women into the park free because they usually bring along a paying escort. This year women are continuing to throng the park on their nights. More than 6,000 attended a recent game for a new single-game record here. O 300 Golfers in Qualifying for Wichita Tourney WICHITA, Kan., Juno 23. (/P)— Nearly 300 golfers had their eyes on Johnny Goodman's title today in the qualifying round of the men's Trans-Mississippi golf tournament. The cast of the 36th annual Trans event rivals that of the national amateur tournament in class. Headed by the defending champion, who also has the doubtful honor of being rated favorite, the entrants include the big guns of amateur golf from Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska. Sniping at Goodman's title are such performers as Walter Emery, Oklahoma City, Jack Munger, Dallas, Johnny Dawson, Chicago; Gus Moreland, Peoria, 111., Grable W. Duvall, Jr., Kansas City and a host of other sharpshooters. Goodman showed he was ready for the battle yesterday by snaring a 69, three under par, on his first tour of the long, windy course. -••> Sports Roundup NEW YORK, June 23, (/P)— Madison Square Garden will go into ;he courts, if necessary, to prevent James J. Braddock fighting Max Schmeling for Mike Jacobs . . . They nay as well line up their lawyers 'or the contracts are as good as signed (if they aren't already) . . . Your agent is being razzed unmercifully by fans in all parts of the country for going out on the limb on Louis . . . Well, we had it com- ng . . . The line forms at the right, boys.

Freddie Tauby Is Choice for Center Fielder DALLAS, June 23, (/P)—Popular Freddie Tauby, Dallas Steer center j fielder, apparently is the people's 'choice for the northern division team in the Texas league all-star game to be played here July 25. Far in front of his other three rivals not only in votes but in batting, runs, stolen bases, chances accepted and assists, Tauby is almost certain to land the center field job. He has Patchett of Tulsa, Shelley of Fort Worth and Myers of Oklahoma City, to overcome. Choice in the south should be a bit more difficult duo to the brilliant all-round play of Herschel Martin, Houston, and Cullenbine, Beaumont sensation. Not to be forgotten is Toney Governor, Galveston's colorful little gardner. Garms of San Antonio, a good hitter; the injured Mel Mazzera of San Antonio and Epps of Houston, are other candidates. Trend of the voting, however, shows Martin out in front with Cullenbine leading in ballots for the utility outfielder's position. Kingsmill Beats Laketon in 10th Kingsmill and Laketon battled 10 innings Sunday afternoon before Kingsmill scored enough runs to win, 8 to 7. That score has been a jinx to Laketon this season, the Wheat Growers having lost three games by 8 to 7 scores. Losses were to the Pampa Bams, Sunoco Sluggers and Kingsmill. Cody won the game for Kingsmill when he hit a screaming double down the third base line to score Morgan, who had singled, and Crocker who had gotten a lift on an error, in the tenth. Laketon tied the Peewees and Little Road Runners to Clash Again The Junior baseball league schedule for this week will send LcFors to Hoover, the Magnolia Peewees to Road Runner park and Phillips 66 to Borger. All the games probably will be played next Sunday, although according to league rules they may be played any time during the week. The schedule for the following week which ends July 5, will pit the Borger Christians against Mc's Pirates at LeFors, Hoover against the Peewees at Magnolia park and Phillips against the Little Road Runners at Road Runner park. A doubleheader will be played at Road Runner park Sunday afternoon with the Little Road Runners playing the double-duty role. The opposition will be the Peewees and a team of boys from Whittenburg. The Danciger lads were scheduled to play on the Magnolia diamond but Coach Roy Marshall agreed to play the game at the birds' park where the feathered covey has thumped the Peewees twice this season. The Borgans whipped the Peewees two Sundays ago on the Mag diamond on a day when the Peewees were badly disorganized and when both of their pitchers were absent. Last night the Peewees gathered in a meeting and elected Amos Reed, pitcher, captain, and Claude Heiskell, co-captain. The boys decided to practice between 9 and 11 o'clock each morning, and the captain was named assistant coach in order to comply with league rules. The Hoover team made a creditable showing at Borger Sunday, E. W. Hogan reported. The Christians failed to score after the sixth inning when E. W. Hogan, Jr., replaced Maddox. Harold Lewis scored on Hogan's blngle early in the game, and made another run when E. W. Hogan knocked a home run late in the game, it was said. It is predicted that Borger will find Phillips a tough bone to chew. The 66 team has led the league in improvement, and last Sunday they might have walloped the Peewees if they had not cracked in the seventh inning when they were leading 3 to 2. The final score was 11 to 6. The Peewees crushed Phillips by something like 20 runs the previous time they played. The second half of the season started Sunday, and computing of standings will begin with that date. Standings up to last Sunday will be thrown in the waste paper basket, and new percentages begun. It is highly probable that the three leading teams will engage in a play-off for the championship at the end of the season. So, today the teams that are undefeated are the Little Road Runners, Borger and the Peewees which won last Sunday. One loss will be chalked up against the other three teams. The Little Road Runners are likely to have a rougher road to victory than they had the last half. With the coming of hot weather, also came a burning ambition of the other teams to humble the undefeated club. Scores have become noticeably closer. Intense practice among the clubs would undoubtedly result in a close race during July. A bronze statue bust of John Nance Garner, first Texan to become vice-president, was unveiled during an impressive ceremony at tiie Texas Centennial Exposition. score in the ninth and went into a lead in the first, half of the tenth. Morgan and Bones divided hurling duties for Kingsmill with Duncan behind the plate. "Silent Alf" West went the distance for Laketon with Barnes his battery mate. GO WEST it costs LESS!
