American Association Teams
Suffer; 17 Hurlers Used
in Four Games
Chicago, May 23-(£*)-The epidemic
of ineffective pitching, so pronounced
in the major leagues this season, is
becoming more noticeable in the
American Association race.
Seventeen pitchers saw service in
four games yesterday and, all told,
they were nicked for 56 runs and 96
hits. The fielding, too, was mediocre,
20 errors being registered.
In one of the feature oattlng
orgies. Columbus routed Indianapolis,
11 to 6, and climbed into second place
by a half game over St. Paul, which
fell before Milwaukee. 15 to 3, m the
heaviest base hit bombardment of
Louisville galloped right along in
front of the pennant contending pa
rade, winning its third straight from
Toledo, 6 to 1, and clinging to a four
game lead on first place.
Minneapolis wound up its series
with the champion Kansas City Blues
by winning a slugfest, 10 to 4.
The battle scenes shifted today
with Toledo at Columbus, Louisville
at Indianapolis, Kansas City at St.
Paul and Milwaukee at Minneapolis.

Maroons Could Help
Wisconsin to Title
By Defeating mini
Chicago, May 23.W 9 )—Chicago
had an opportunity to end the Big
Ten baseball championship race to
day as a favor to Wisconsin.
Illinois, the only team left in the
race with an outside chance of tying
the high flying Badgers for the
crown, invaded Chicago and victory
for the Maroons over the mini would
determine the winner.
Wisconsin with eight victories and
no defeats has two games left, both
with Michigan, and needed only one
to clinch the title.
Illinois has lost two games in nine
starts and required a win to remain
in the race.
Michigan, beaten five times in sev
en starts, was at Purdue for the other
game of the day.

comparative statistics are not avail

leagues did some of the heaviest can
nonading of all times yesterday.
In 10 games in-the two'leagues, 46
pitchers were shelled for 155 singles,
40 doubles, eight triples and 26 home
runs and issued 62 passes. The net
result was a grand total of 126 runs.
Batsmen in the two leagues slugged
the ball for a collective average of
.306, the National League leading with
.310 to .302 for the American. The
heaviest firing of the day was con
centrated at Philadelphia when the
Yankees and Athletics poled out 15
singles, two doubles, one triple and
14 home runs off 14 pitchers.

Great Sports Career
Lafayette, Ind., May 23.—(JP>—Glen
Harmeson, one of Purdue’s greatest
stars, was at the end of a great inter
collegiate athletic career today as the
Boilermakers closed their baseball
season against Michigan.

ketball and baseball at Purdue for
three yean and was a big cog in Pur
due’s twin championships in the first
two sports during the 1929-30 seasons.
Last fall, after two seasons at quar
terback, Harmeson was shifted to
halfback and gained an average of
5.3 yards on each thrust. In basket

one undisputed title, tied for another
and finished second another year.
This season in baseball he played

HEAVY SEEDED FLAX
Federal Experiments at Mandan
Show 24 Pounds to Acre
Should Be Planted
Experimental plantings of flax at
the U. S. Northern Great Plains ex
perimental station, Mandan, show
that the crop helps to control its own
weed problem if the rate of planting
is high enough.
With a planting of about 24 pounds
to the acre, the fields of flax yielded
about a bushel an acre more at har
vest than did fields planted at the
rate of 16 pounds to the acre. More
over. the extra eight pounds of seed
provided more flax plants, and these
helped to check the growth of weeds.
Growers are urged to sow the flax

early in the season and sow more seed
to the acre than many farmers have
been accustomed to plant.
The early planting in the first three
weeks of May gives the flax a better
chance to smother many of the weeds,
and also brings the crop to the crit
ical stage of growth at a time when
moisture conditions are most likely to
be favorable. The investigators also
found that disking in preparation for
seeding flax on corn stubble resulted
in better yields than did spring plow
ing of the corn stubble. Flax requires
a rather firm seed bed. and on plowed
fields the experimenters got a better
stand if they used a packer after
plowing and before seeding.
