AGGIES AND CRIMSONS BATTLE TO 2 TO 2 VERDICT Darkness Ends Alabama-A. and M. Game With Score Tied University, May 12.—(Special.)— Alabama and the Mississippi Aggies went seven innings to a 2-2 tie here this afternoon. The beginning of the game was delayed for an hour by the unfavorable weather condi tions, a slow rain preceding the con test. Alabama did all her scoring in the first Inning and set out nicely when Pitts singled sharply through short. Keith laid down a neat sacrifice, ad vancing him to second. Keith came home a minute later on Captain Hall’s three cylinder lick to right field. *'Papa” Hubert came through at this Juncture of the game with a single and Hall scored, this ended ’Bama’s scoring. The Aggies scored their runs, one each in the fourth and fifth, arid after two men had been retired in both Instances. The counter in the fourth resulted from Rail’s single, an error and Cobb’s two bagger, the other in the fifth came from Klind worth’s double and a single by Turner. Cunningham, making his first start in the box, pitched well, allow ing seven hits, though the visitors had men on the bases several times through errors. Great support by Elmore, Oliver and Hinton in the garden and by the infield cut down their opportunities. “Papa’’ Hubert threw out three runners at second. Pitts, Hubert, Elmore and Hall con tributed the feature woodwork. For the Aggies, Myer at short, Rawls, Cobb, Myer and Klindworth featured at the at. Myer did some brilliant fielding at short. Mitchell pitched brilliantly in the seventh, nipping a threatened rally after Davis had hit, by striking out two men after Oliver had sacrificed. Mitchell, the ace of the Aggies hurl ing corps, will face McMillan, ’Kama's young 6tar, in tomorrow’s engagement. These two boys should provide some pitching that is worth looking at If the ground is not sloppy. The game was called on ac count of darkness. Score: Miss. A. & M.— AB.

MORRISON WILL PROBABLY TWIRL DECIDING GAME Robinson or McLoughlin May Oppose Morry at Rickwood By MARVIN M'CARTHY The Barons wind up a ten-game stay at Rickwood park this afternoon, when they meet the Little Rock Travelers In the final game of the series. The count now stands one and one. and today's game will de- , cide the issue. Big Phil Morrison, who has won ! seven games for the Barons with one defeat, will probably draw the assignment for this afternoon. The big right hander has been chunking ’em across with lots of speed lately, and. if he gets a good start today, ought to hold the Travelers at bay. Just who the Travelers will send to the mound this afternoon Is not settled, but It Is probable that either Rube Robinson or McLoughlin will je \ised. Rube Robinson has long been * thorn In the side of Baronial outft, although he didn’t have much luck against the, Barons last year. Mo Loughlin Is the big right hander se emed by the Travelers from the Giants, and the Little Rock boss is probably anxious to see him In ac tion. The Rasorbacks got enough viciousness out of their systems yes terday to do them a day or so, and railblrds who witnessed that en counter are hoping for the best to day. The Barone lay off Sunday, but open a three-game stay at Atlanta Monday. After that they hop the rattlef for Birmingham, bringing the Crackers over for a set of games at Rickwood. Respect for Claude Frank I a Britt, whom Claud© Wil son knocked out at the B. A. C. last Monday night, carried such tales of Claude's, prowess to Atlanta that Walk Miller, who had billed the Bir mingham boy for a six-round bout with a protege of his. has wired that it will not be necessary to use young "Wilson’s services. Britt claims Claude’s a world beater and you can’t blame the chap at that. It was stated yesterday that Claude’s next fight at the B. A. C. will probably he with Young Arm strong of Louisville. who is said to be one of the select few in bantam weight* circles. Selma Overwhelms Greensboro Outfit Selma.

Comiskey, Louis Comlsikey or the White Sox club, is an absoQute falsehood,” Harry GraJbiner, secre tary of the Chicago Whits Sox said today, after reading statements made in an affidavit In Milwaukee yester day by Felsch which cdharged that the two Comlakeys knew of "fixed" ball games in which the Sox took part in 1917. Both Comlskeys are out of town. “Happy Felsch la a discredited man who accepted money to betray his employer and his teammates by throwing games in the 19tl9 series.** continued Mr. Grablner. "What he says is not really worth commenting on, but since so much has been said about it, I will say that every word is a falsehood. •'Felsch has not really charged anything. He simply aeke a lot o£ silly questions with a lot of impllca^ tions in them. It does not take a smart man nor even a smart lawyer to do that." Tulane and Tech in S. J. A. A.
