Sore At Majors By SAM RAGAN The protests down Texas way about major league teams taking players out of school before they ever get their degree, brings to mind the old quarrel of the Wake Forest backers who said that if the Baptist institution would keep its baseball players from deserting the campus for the big show it would w'in a few Southern conference championships. ,, , And their contention has a lot in it, for there has been quite a few Wake Forest players moving up into organized baseball after just one or two years of college experience. In fact, you,ll find Deacon alumni m just about every league ol tne nation. The Wood Case Texans were riled when the De troit Tigers paid J. P. Wood, a Rice Institute student, a $4,000 bonus for signing with their Beaumont farm club. Sports scribes o£ the Lone Star state immediately began howling for Judge Landis to do something about the tactics. The aforesaid scribes are not especially interested in Wood getting his sheepskin, but he was captain of the Rice nine and one of the key men in football plans at Rice next fall. Most boys with baseball ability go ahead and get their college educa tion and then take a pro baseball contract if one is proffered. Then in case they fail to stick, they have a better chance of getting bed and board out in the hard, cruel world.

WAKU WINS UVtK GOODMAN IN MEE1 National Amateur Champion Overcomes Handicaps To Ad vance In Western Tourney MINNEAPOLIS, July 12.—(A>1— Bud Ward of Spokane today prov ed he was of the stuff champions are made of when neither a pin* tree, a bush nor such a golfing figure as Johnny Goodman of Oma ha could keep him from entering the semi-finals of the 42nd Annual Western Amateur tournament a 1 the Minneapolis golf club. The national amateur champior spilled Goodman, former holder oi both t ie nation’s amateur and oper crowns, one up after the pine tre* cost him a hole at a crucial mo ment and was partly responsible for loss of another, while the bush nearly permitted his opponent to pull up to even terms laste in the match. That was but one of 3 spectac ular quarter-final matches with Jim Ferrier of Sydney, Australia, nosing out Wilford Wehrle of Chic ago in a dramatic finish 2 up and CJeorge Victor of Chicago defeating Earl Larson, Minneapolis, 1 up. The fourth match found Harrj rodd of Dallas, defending cham n;n tr i Fargo, N. D. 6 and 4. Ferrier, both open and amateut champion in his country, complet ed his fifth straight 18 hole rounc under regulation figures when ht turned in a medal 70, two under par in defeating his Chicago op ponent. As an added flourish he finished with a birdie three. Wehrle also had a chance for a birdie or the final hole but missed a five foot putt. Victor, who defeated one of the aig favorites, Art Doering of Chic ago, in the third round 5 and 4, scored a medal 71 to outlast Larson and will be Ferrier’s opponent in a 36 hole semi-finals match Sat urday. Ferrier won from Elmer Freed of Cleveland, Ohio, 6 and l, in the third round. Ward gets another stiff test in he other semi-finals match Satur lay when he meets the tourna nent’s defending champion, Todd, rodd defeated Larry Moller af Quincy, 111., who he also met and vanquished in the tournament finals a year ago, 3 and 2 in the hird round, and Kostelecky in the luarter-finals. In the morning's hird round Ward defeated Warren 3erl of Stanford, 3 and 2. 3 Skipper Giles Bat Three Hits As Bucs Win DINK LARKINS HITS HOMER IN EIGHTH Carter Bats 1,000, Steals Base And Scores One Run In | 9 To 1 Victory — Wilmington’s Pirates, behind the three-hit pitching of Norwood Skip ■ per, whipped the Dillon, S. C., nine : to the tune of 9-1 last night at Le gion field. I After a scoreless, hitless first inn ing, the Pirates took a two run lead i in the first, added another in the ; fifth, three in the sixth and three i more in the eighth to win without ever being in danger. Dink Larkins was the hardest hit ; ter of the night, hitting a neat hom er in the ninth with Carter and 1 Smidt on the paths. With the exception of an error on 1 Smidt and a doubtful error on Moore in the first inning, the Pirates play ed errorless ball to give Skipper clean support. Little Man Amos Carter looked like his old self last night, with a hit and a run for his only official l time at bat. Twice he sacrificed and once he was walked but on the oc ■ casioil UL ilia wain, was luuueu iu second in the only double play of the game. He was also credited with a stolen base, to make his record even more like those he racked up last season. The Dillon nine put together a hit, a walk and two fielder’s choices in th9 ninth for their only score of the game. Wednesday night of next week, it was announced last night, will again be Ladies’ Night. The Pirates’ op ponent was not named but it is understood efforts are being made to bring the Kinston nine here for a game.
