pearance of the year and to keep
Jhe amazing Dodger winning streak
it1'30’' . . „
Seven In A Row
That made it seven in a row for
the Daffiness b°YS who £°t away
quickly and were never headed. A
pillgle run in the first inning put
them tip on their cordially-disliked
inter-borough rivals, they added an
other in the fourth and a pair in the
seventh.
The Giants’ lone run came off the
bat of Master Melvin Ott, who got
hiS first homer of the season. It
was the first one he had hit since
las: August 28 and was thrice-wel
come. since the Giants, without
Ott's booming bat, are accorded lit
tle chance to wind up in the upper
brackets of the National league.
Two double plays helped Hamlin
over the rough spots W'hich showed
up in his eight-hit masterpiece.

Four Games Carded Today
In Cape Fear Ball Loop
Hi-Kappas To Meet Purol
Nine In Legion Field
Headliner
By R. J. POWELL
Four corking-good ball games are
on tap (or this afternoon in the
Cape Fear Baseball association as
the loop reaches the third week of
play.
Legion field will be the scene of
the spotlighted attraction of the
day—the Hi-Kappas-Purol tussel
while the Robert Strange diamond
will be occupied by the Athletics
and Leland Bears. Jackson-Bell will
entertain the Pepsi Cola team at
Hilton and the Masonboro Ramblers
will be at home to the R C Cola
gang. The starting time for all
games is 3 o’clock.
Swlnson or Sandlin
Purol. the conquerors of highly
rated Royal Crown last week, is
depending upon either Sweeney
Swinson or Steady David Sandlin
to hurl it to a win over the tied-for
top fraternity club, which is ex
pected to shoot “Highpockets”
Jimmy Mintz or Bullock to the hill
with their new-found catching star,
Austin McDonald on the receiving
end. Austin accounted for three put
outs on the bases in last Sunday’s
game. The remainder of the two
starting lineups will be the same
with Eagles at first for the Hi-Kap
pas and Royal at the same position
for Purol, the keystone stations will
be manned by Shine Bradshaw and
Henry Taylor. Billy Peiper will be
in the hot corner for the frat nine
and Jiggs Gore for the Bluebirds.
The shortstops will be Leon Thornes
and Nig Herring.
Outfielders for the fraternity
team will be Flowers, Hufham, and
either Lewis or Porter, a newcomer
from up Kelly way. Snow and John
Taylor, and John Cameron will make
up the Purol garden patrol.
The rampaging Lelanders, who
have blasted everything out of the
lot in the first two games of the
campaign, are expecting to slow
down a bit when Curveballer Lappy
Williams takes the mound against
them this afternoon. However, the
Wolves not only boast of the most
ferocious batting attack in the loop
to date,, but also they have one of
the most effective defenses yet ex
h bited. With “Baby Ray” Brew do
ing the chunking, only two earned |
runs have been chalked against
them in the first two engagements, j
Starting Lineup
The A’s starting lineup will prob
ably look like this:
Beasley catch. Rich at first, A. B.
Stokely at second, Anderson at
third. Brown at short, and Lennon,
W. Stokely and Clemmons in the
outfield.
The Fletcher Pinerless Jackson
Bellers are expected to call on Lefty
Gray or Jack Hall, their other
wrongside hurler, to toe the slab
against the bunch of high school

Stunned by the unexpected defeat
handed them by the Ramblers last
week, the PC’s will be out to regain
that lost prestige and will probably
send Vic Gore on the mouna to turn
the trick. Baker, former catcher for
Whiteville, will be behind the plate

expected to take place in the other
positions on the nine. Among the
other recruits expected to play this
afternoon include Rock Casteen and
Fulton Allen, both infielders.
Headon Piner or former Tide Wa

the starting pitcher for the visiting
RC club. Capt. Ed Wilson is expect

the set-up will place Farmer at the
initial sack, Joe Markiton at the
mid-way station, John Markiton on
third, and Linwood Rowan at the
shortstop post. The outfield will be
composed of Cherry, Sandlin, and
Hawkins.

WOOD MEMORIAL
CAPTURED BY DIT
Arnold Hanger’s Horse Looks
Better Than Ever For
The Derby May 4
I3Y SID FEDER
NEW YORK, April 27.— (.IP) —Ar
nold Hanger’s Dit; a front-running
rascal with a lot of wind, estab
lished himself more than ever to
day as the east’s chief Kentucky
derby hope by whipping a big but
otherwise not-so-hot field in the
Wood memorial.
By coming home three lengths in
front and nothing even close, the
son of Transmute won for himself
the rather doubtful honor of going
to Louisville to challenge Bimeleeh
in the derby a week from today.
He was by all odds the class of the
field, and a record crowd of 27,613
fans, who made him the $5.80-for-$2
favorite in the field of 13 knew it.
He broke on top, made every pole
a winning one and made the finish
look like a parade, as Jockey Buddy
Haas, part of the 120 pounds he car
ried, just held on and let 'er rip.
Mrs. Payne Whitney’s Red Dock
was an easy second, five lengths in
front of the surprising Devil’s Crag,
which John B. Partridge claimed
from Mrs. H. C. Phipps a year ago.
The Crag led Mrs. Phipps’ Snow
Ridge by a length and a half, a
length farther back came Amblin’
Andy K„ second best two-year-old n
the country last year, who didn’t
commit his usual “sin” of running
out.
