12th Inning Homer Gives Cubs Win Over Dodgers 4.3
Begin Play In Second Series
Of Seven Games In
First Half Today
The Purol-Pepsi Cola game at
the stadium shares the spotlight
with the RC Athletics contest at
Robert Strange on this afternoon’s
program in the Cape Fear Base
ball association as the eight teams
start the back stretch toward the
loop’s first half flag. Seven tilts
have been played and seven more
are on the first half schedule.
In the third game of the day. the
Hi-Kappas, who are in a three-way
jam with Pepsi and I.eland fox

cellar-misery of the last - place
Jackson Bell entry. While this ex

Hilton, the Leland Bears will be
trying to regain their stride on the
home lot with the fourth-place Ma
sonboro Ramblers as the victims.
The Lelanders were shutout by the
frat nine and the Ramblers went
13 chapters to nose out the JB's
in last Sunday’s engagements.
Snag Allen soundly thumped by
the RC’s last week, will probably
draw the starting mound assign
ment for the smooth-fielding Pepsi
club. Up until last Sunday's set
back, the fiery righthander had
oeen almost invincible on the slab,
accounting for four of his team’s
cictories this year. Adrian Rhodes,
the husky young High school catch
er, will probably get the receiving
job and the rest of the lineup will
remain the same.
With Big Sweeney Swinson on
the sidelines with a sore wing, the
Bluebirds will likely call on Speed
aall Artist Headon Piner. to halt
:he Pepsi fledglings. Headon came
jp with a nifty three-hit job against
;he A’s last week and appears in

with Snag Allen, and Company.

Fresh from their win over the
PC’s last week, the Royal Crown
men are confident they will erase
the A's in this afternoon’s classic at
Robert Strange.
On the other hand, the Athletics,
looking back to the initial clash of
the season which was won by the
RC's bv a slim margin, have high
lopes of upsetting their mtra-sec
:ional rivals this time. Fletcher
Piner, who was blasted out of the

Hola pitcher. Batton is expected to

In high spirits over their crushi
ng conquest of the Leland aggre
gation last week, the Hi-Kappas
will probably bring out one of their
.essor-known flingers to see action
against the luckless JB's. Perhaps
iue to his fine showing against

Hatchel may get the nod, but then,
there is righthander Louis Wells,

Does Not Have A Single First
Place Winne" In The
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 1—
—Although without a single first
place winner in a competition that
saw five new meet records set
and another equalled, the Univer
sity of Pittsburgh gained its second
IC4A track and field championship
in four years today at Harvard
By putting together five and a
half second places, plus a third, a
fourth and a fifth, the Panthers
rolled up 29 1-2 points and nullified
the mighty lift that Norwood Eweil,
sensational negro sophomore, gave
his Pennsylvania State forces by
winning both dashes and the broad
Ewell’s “triple,” the first in IC4A
competition since 1937, when Col
umbia’s Ben Johnson won the same
three events while Pittsburgh was
gaining the team title, enabled
Penn State to take second place
with 24 points.
California, the pre-meet favorite,
tied with Yale for third honors
with 20 points and New York
University was fifth with 19 points.
The other team scores were tufts

Rip-Roaring Wrestling
Card Set For Thursday
William Henry Ezzell Will
Meet Harry Larkins On
Three-Bout Card
A three-ring circus would have
nothing on the wrestling card to
be presented at Legion Field’s ex
hibition building Thursday night,
when the gladiators of the ring
wrangle again for the amusement
of Wilmington fight fans.
In addition to the regular two
bout card, a bout between William
Henry Ezzell, Wilmington’s wrest
ling constable, and Harry Larkins
has been added to the card, at the
request of the amateur gladiators.
William Henry accepted Larkins’
challenge last week and Scotty
Dorkins, promoter, added their
contest to the card at their request.
Asked last night if he thought the
bout would be stased (in view of
others in which William Henry has
been announced as a participant
which never materialized for one
reason or another) Scotty came
through with g laconic, “Yup.”
He went on to explain that he
put the amateurs on the card at
their request and only because they
wished to do battle in the ring.
Now, he said, if they fail to wrestle
for any reason at all, Scotty is go
ing to have a thing or two to say
about it. Consequently he is sure
there will be a battle royal be
tween the two amateurs when the
gong rings Thursday night.
The regular card in itself is no
slouch, he pointed out. In the main
bout of the evening Bibber Mc
Coy, of Boston, former Holy Cross
athlete, who caught for Detroit in
baseball for two years and who
tips the beam at a mere 2 4 5
pounds, is going to tangle with
Tom Mahoney, of Florida, who has
gained quite a following here. The
bout is to be for the best two out of
three falls with a 90 minute time
Mahoney’s popularity has grown
here with each of his three appear
ances, in two of which he gained
victories over Bashara and Hader.
In the prelim Ellis Bashara, of
Oklahoma, the former All-America
star and Olympic wrestling team
member in 1932, will meet the
Navy’s former champion, Pat
Newman, who last week fought to
a one-hour draw with Johnny
Marrs in a bout which more than
pleased the fans. 1
Game Played Under Protest
As Result Of Second-In
ning Incident
CINNCINNATI, June —Iff)— The
Cincinnati Reds trounced the Bos
ton Bees 3 to 2 today behind Gene
Thompson's three-hit pitching, but
the Bees played under protest as
the result of a second inning in
Frank Me Cormick singled to
start the second and Ernie Lom
bardi waited out Bill Posedel to
a three-nothing count. On the
fourth pitch Lombardi thought Um
pire Bill Stewart waved him to first.
Ernie started to walk and McCor
mick sauntered toward second.
Stewart, however, meant the ball
was a strike. Catcher A1 Lopez of
the Bees threw to second and Mc
Cormick was tagged. After hud
dling, the umpires sent McCormick
back to first and made it 3 and 1 on
Ernie. Manager Casey Stengel
of the Bees protested—Then Ernie
doubled, scoring Frank.
Lonnie Frey’s second homer of
the year, in the fifth with Harry
Craft on base, provided the Clinch
er. The bees gathered their runs
in the sixth on three walks and
Tony Cuccinello’s single. 2
