Clarke, Rated No. 7 Fifth Year in Row, Called Ace Duckpinner of All Time
Capital Becomes First
City to Snare Top 3
Spots in Big Ten
Smith and Santini Hot
On Astor's Heels; Six
D. C. Stars in List
Tf any doubt existed that Astor
Clarke of Clarendon was the great
est duckpin bowler of all time it was
dispelled last night with the *an
nouncement by Arville Ebersole,
new secretary of the National Duck
pin Bowling Congress, that Clarke
for the fifth consecutive year had
won the No. 1 spot in national rank
ings for 1939-40.
Of almost equal noteworthiness
was Washington's unique distinc
tion of landing the top three places
in the first 10. Trailing Clarke by
skimpy margins were Hokie Smith
and Ton<y Santini.
With Ed Blakeney tied for sixth;
Perce Wolfe, seventh, and Joe Har
rison. 10th, Metropolitan Washing
ton tied its record of 1931 when it
placed six men among the Big Ten.
The Capital's high rankers in ’31
were Henry Hiser, Ollie Pacini,
Clarke, Smith, Red Morgan and
Paul Harrison.
So close were the final averages on
the first 10 this year it was neces
sary to iwclude 12 bowlers in the list
with Mac Carboni of New Haven.
Conn., tying with Blakeney for sixth
and Winfield Guerke and Nova
Hamilton of Baltimore tying for
eighth.
Tronsky and White Stick.
Still holding their own were Nick
Tronsky and Jack White of Con
necticut, selected fourth and fifth.
Tronsky in 285 games averaged 128
82, while White shot an average of
126-334 in 453 games.
The only newcomer to the top 10
was Ray Fiorentino of Baltimore,
who was awarded ninth place with
an average of 126-121 for 346 games.
In the second and third 10s Met
ropolitan Washington placed four.
Harry Hilliard of Hyattsville gained
18th place: Lou Jenkins, 22d: Paul
Jarman. 28th, and Howard Parsons.
29th. Bill Krauss made the honor
roll for rollers with high averages
but not enough games to qualify for
rankings.
In a stirring season-long struggle
Clarke, by the grace of more games
rolled, successfully defended his No.
1 laurels against Smith and San
tini. Both far surpassed Clarke in
sweepstakes rolling. Santini was the
biggest, sweepstakes money winner.
He started off with a bang by an
nexing the Howard Campbell, then
came back to triumph in the $500
Dixie with a national record of 2,106
for 15 games. He ran up his win
nings to more than $1,000 before the
season ended. He was the runner
up in the District League with an
average of 128-5.
Hokie Gets Big Start,
Smith, off to a sensational season
with a victory in the Frank Jett at
Richmond, copped three more
sweepstakes. His two standout feats
came in the St.. Patrick's mixed
doubles at Silver Spring, in which
be smashed the national 10-game
record with 1.434, and The Evening
Star Yuletide tournament, in which
he set a record with 760, rolled from
scratch at the Lucky Strike. Last
year Smith was ranked No. 10, with
Santini just getting under the wire
in the No. 30 spot.
But against Santini’s combined
average of 128-160 for 309 games and
Smiths 128-117 for 340 games,
Clarke, with only a fair sweepstakes
performance, came through with
three all-time league marks. In the
District League he cracked his own
record of 128-69 with 131 and in the
Rosslyn Independent loop walked off
with the championship with an
average of 128 and a fraction for 114
gamer. In the Federal League, as
its perennial champion, he hit a new
high with 127. His combined aver
age was 128-88 for 561 games. He
w-as granted two pins for each game
he rolled more than Smith or San
tini.
joe Harrison dropped in the na
tional rankings from 4th to 10th
place, while on the other hand the
steady and lusty rolling of Perce
Wolfe and Ed Blakeney gained for
them places among the elite after a
year's absence.

Homer by Softers in 12th Seals
Yank 6-5 Defeat After Di Mag
Gives Chisox Run at Start
By the Associated Press.
CHICAGO, July 27,—For most of
this very warm afternoon, big
Moose Solters might just as well
have had a lollypop in his hand as
a baseball bat when he stepped up
to the plate for the White Sox
against the New York Yankee^.
But in the 12th inning, when it
came time to maintain the Yanks’
record for losing overtime games,
the Moose obliged by poking one of
Marv Breuer’s slants into the left
field stands for his ninth homer of
the year and 6-to-5 victory for the
Sox, ending a “comedy of errors”
performance by both sides.
I This marked the fourth Yankee
i loss in five extra-inning games this
season and gave Dune Rigney the
decision over Breuer. Both went
the full distance and each allowed
only nine hits.
Despite Solters game-wrecking
wallop and homers by Joe Gordon
and Tommy Henrich. the high light
of the proceedings came in the first
inning, when Joe Di Maggio was
tagged with two errors on one play
in a neat bit of “now-he-has-it
now-he-doesn't” outfielding.
With two out, Joe Kuhel lofted
a fly to Joe. Di Maggio caught it,
and with the rest of the Yanks, was

As Five Clubs in City League
Fight for Section A Lead
J. C. Flood Plumbers, a disturbing
element in National City League
circles since their debut last season,
will try to kick up more dust this
afternoon when they tie into Klein’s
Tavern in one of several outstand
ing sandlot attractions.
Fireworks are expected all over
town, what with five clubs tied for
the lead in Section A and two dead
locked in Section B. District Gro
cers. Miller Furniture and Packard
Washington are in the thick of the
Section A scramble, while Plaza Tile
and Marble and Capital Cafe are
on top in the other division.
'Stump'’ Talburtt, the "Dutch”
Leonard of the lots, probably will
be Manager Herman Littman's
starting mound nominee for Flood.
One of the city's best twrlers, Tal
burtt, pitched five innings against
Frank Small Motors last week and
turned 'em back with a meager two
hits. If his snaky knuckler is work
ing today Kleins may wind up on
the short end of the score.
Tough Game for Orange Disc.
' Dutch” Gerhardt has Boyd and
Bill Liggett to shoot at the Plumbers
and either can make it hot for
their rivals.
George Dingler's Orange Disc
nine, dark horse of the second half
race, faces a stern test in Miller
Furniture, but with Frank Sharpe
and Bill McGee ready to pitch may
pull through. Dingler’s crew is
showing remarkable improvement
trotting off. the field. As he ran.
however, he dropped the ball, and
Umpire Red Rommel insisted the
putout was not legal, since under
the rules an outfielder must get the
ball away after a catch.
Di Maggio picked up the ball and
threw it to the unprotected third
base. It skipped all the way into
the Sox dugout and Kuhel danced
around the bags to score. The en
tire Yankee club protested the de
cision, with the usual results.

Win Over Bees
By the Associated Pres*.
BOSTON. July 27.—Pittsburgh's
surging Pirates trounced the Boston
Bees 10-4 today for their second vic
tory in a row in the current series,
playing before a slim crowd of 1.519,
more than half of them women.
Pittsburgh's vicious 17-hit assault
forced Casev Stengel to parade four
pitchers to the mound, one of them.
Jim Tobin, who was making his first
appearance as a Bee after being out
since spring with a wrenched knee,
suffered in a pre-season game.
Pittsburgh salted the game away
in the third inning, blasting Starter
Lefty Joe Sullivan from the hill and
continuing the assault on A1 Pie
chota to chalk up five runs.
The defeat sent the Bees to but
a half game away from the cellar
and gave Pittsburgh its 15th tri
umph in the last 20 starts.

By the Associated Press.
DETROIT, July 27—The Phila
delphia Athletics, tough customers
all season lor the Tigers, succumbed
twice under big bombardments from
the league pace-makers today, 15 to
2, and 8 to 7, as Detroit hiked Its
American lead up to two full games.
Schoolboy Rowe personally sub
merged the A s in the opener on six
hits, homering with a man on base
in the fourth for the tying and
winning runs, and a pair of four
baggers by Charley Gehringer and
Rudy York chased home four runs
in a seventh-inning rally to win
the nightcap. The second struggle
lasted Into evening hours.
With second-place Cleveland los
ing to Washington, the Tigers picked
up a game and a half in the pen
nant chase and ran their current
winning streak to nine victories in
11 games.
Briggs Stadium, with a crowd of
23.470 whooping things up for the
Tigers, assumed the atmosphere of
the championship seasons of 1934
and 1935 with the Schoolboy going
to town and Tiger sluggers in high
gear. Detroit collected 27 hits.

pitched to the final batter.
Olsen gave up only four hits, two
of them triples by Demaree and Bob
Seeds, the only extra-base blows of
the game

Brownies Comb Four
Red Sox Slabbists
To Win by 13-5
By the Associated Press.
ST. LOUIS. July 27.—The St.
Louis Browns were in a slugging
mood today and found the Boston
Red Sox ingers made to order for
limbering-up exercises which netted
15 safeties and a 13-to-5 triumph.
In squaring the series at one game
apiece, the Browns combed four Red
Sox moundsmen for six extra-base
blows, including homers by Chet
Laabs and Rip RadclifT. and gar
nered a total of 25 bases on their
efforts at the plate.
Vernon Kennedev went the route
for the winners although he walked
! nine and yielded 11 safe blows. Five
double plays obliterated whatever
hopes the Red Sox had and Kennedy
never was in serious trouble after
the Brownies took the lead with a
four-run outburst in the second.

Andrews Found for Runs. r
Meanwhile, the Nats were sam
pling the southpav pitches of Harry
Eisenstat. but not to ahy great
degree. They nicked him for a rtin
in the fifth when Walker doubled
to deep center and scored as Travis
looped a dinky single over Short
stop Boudreau's head, but Eisenstat
served his 6>a-inning stretch not
ably, allowing only five hits.
It was against stocky Nat Andrews
that the Nats increased their mar
gin to its final proportions in the
ninth. Chase enticed a walk to
open the inning and Case beat
out another bunt. Both advanced
as Lewis was tossed out by Andrew’s.
Center Fielder Roy Weatherly in
serted a spectacular diving catch
of Walker's liner at that Juncture,
but Chase scored after the grab and
Case tallied when Travis sliced a
double down the left field line.
Everybody but West and Chase
