Shows. Himself Best Bowler
in El Paso in a Well
The largest crowd in the bowling
.history of El Paso was at the Cactus
club alleys Friday night to watch the
match game between A. "W. Houck
and E. M. Roberts, for the city cham
pionship. Roberts's defeat was de
cisive, there being no time during the
contest that Houck's superiority was
not in evidence.
Roberts is one of the few two fin
gered bowlers in the countnr. His in
dex and middle fingers on his bowling
hand are cut off at the knuckles. Al
though handicapped in this way, he is
able to show the fine points of the
gamp to most of the local fans.
Roberts came here with a reputa
tion, having at one time been a mem
ber of the fast Duffy team, of St.
Louis, which was rated as among the
best In the country. In the contest
Friday night, however, he seemed to
be all out of luck, as invariably the
pins would break badly. He rolled a
clean, sure ball but splits were much
in evidence. .,
Houck was at his best. In the first
game he started off with seven strikes,
and, throughout the contest he seemed
to be able to strike at will.
In every detail in the results, the
score shows Houck to have put up the
better game. Up to the eighth game,
Houck kept his average above the 200
mark and finished the 10 games with
on nvoraETA nf 191. T?nhrtB rtn thp
other hand only ran an average of 166. j
The score follows:
Houck 246, 313, ISo, 221, 17, 172,
203, 186, 151, 192. Total 1916.
Roberts 175, 147) 168, 191, 157, 15S,
