WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 24, 1936. THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas PHILLIPS HOPES TO PROVE TONIGHT 66 CLUB IS IN ROAD RUNNERS' PHILLIPS POINTING TO GAME FOR LAST 3 WEEKS Softball League To Close Halt With Shelly Leading The Phillips baseball club from LcFors will have its big moment tonight at Road Runner park here when players cross bats with the Pampa-Danclger Road Runners for the first time. Game time will be 8:30 o'clock, with admission 40 cents for men and women admitted free if accompanied by a malo escort. For the last three weeks the Phillips boys have been pointing to a game with the birds. Fans started a ballyhoo to have the teams meet. There were insinuations that the Road Runners were afraid to take on the Phillips clan after they had defeated Amarillo-Phillips, 2 and 1. Manager Sam Hale and his birds decided differently and the game was matched Friday night, .lust before the Eason Oilers of Enid, Okla. fell before the Fampan.s. That victory made the Phillips gang look up and take notice. Long practice sessions were held Monday and yesterday by the Phillips nine. The infield and pitchers were worked hard and long. Manager Eddie Pulllam was undecided who his starting mound artist would be after he had sent his three left- handers and two righthanders thru a final limbering-up workout. Rex Dllbeck, former Road Runner left- hander, appeared to have the inside track, however. The crafty Road Runner manager was also silent about his hurling choice. Fans pick either Lee Daney or Sam Gray to be the starting pitcher, although it. was rumored about town this morning that a new hurler would appear in a Road Runner uniform, tonight and that he might be the pitcher. He is a big fellow, young, with plenty of speed and a high hard one. On Friday night, the Road Runners will be in Amarillo for a game with the Phillips Parrots of that city. The birds hold three victories over the Amarillo crew. Mrs. Chandler Wins Kound at Denver Tourney 3 Teams Tied up For?

Brown weighed 198. Eddie O'Day of Chicago scored a fourth round technical knockout over Paul Wilson of Tulsa and Steve Padon fought a draw with lanlon Del Gato. By SID FEDER Asosciatcd Press Sports Writer Presenting a couple of A-No. 1, dyed-in-the-wool mysteries of the major league—the Cleveland Indians and Washington Senators— who so far this season have been doing a flop-flop in form without rhyme or reason. Your master-minding sleuth could make a full time job out of finding (1) what's keeping the Indians back and (2) what's holding the Senators up. The Tribe, with a batting order that gives opposing pitchers the Willies; a hurling staff that was among the more effective in the league last year and a complete set-up that, on paper, figures to be battling it out with the leaders. Yet, the Tribe is playing just .500 ball, and at the moment, is about ten games off the American league pace. On the other hand, the Senators, with only two regulars batting better than .300, the highest under 325, with pitchlnfg, which, except for Jimmy De Shong who was not with the club last year, is, if anything, less effective than it was for a sixth place team in 1935, and who generally weren't rated in the first division are up there on the trail of the second place Red Sox. The Indians took it on the chin again yesterday, 8-6, from the weakest collection of Athletics Connie Mack has put together in years, to drop out of third place. At the same time, the Senators were clubbing St. Louis pitching all over the lot, while De Shong chalked up his ninth victory, 10-5, to move the Washingtons into third place. The Red 'Sox, meantime, pulled up a game on the Yanks by. nosing out the Tigers, 7-6, while the White Sox were drubbing the New Yorkers, 13-4. While the Indians and Senators are confounding the experts in the American league, the New York Giants are doing the same in the National. Just about counted out of the race because of their recent apparent collapse, the Giants suddenly revived pitching and an equally sudden hitting spurt by old Travis Jackson made it two straight over the Pirates yesterday with a 3-2 decision. The Cards and Chicago Cubs, meantime, continued their merry chase at the top of the list, the former pulling out a tough 3-2 win over the Phillies, and the Cubs, paced by Frank Demaree's three-run homer, stopping the blustering Boston Bees 8-6. The Cincinnati Reds, behind some fine pitching by Wild Bill Hallahan, started the sinking Dodgers off on another losing streak with a 3-0 shutout.

Uing experts—those same individuals who are hiding under beds after predicting that Max Schmeling didn't have a Chinaman's chance to knock out Joe Louis- indicate that the Bomber's surprise defeat marked the end of his ring career. The above pic- ture, taken as Joe hung on the ropes after his knockout in the twelfth round, would influence such a belief. Bewilderment and resignation are written all over the Detroit Negro's heretofore impassive visage as he fumbles foggily for support.
