The Broncs piled up their win ding margin by heavy hitting and untimely errors. They got off to a good lead in the first inning when Magee slapped out a home run with the sacks loaded. The Scorpions never overcame the five run lead made in the first innnig. They came back strong in the third frame, however, utilizing two hits, a hit batsman and three trrors to push across four runs. Sylvester got a double in this smear. Powell got himself into trouble in the fourth inning when he al lowed two walks, hit a batter and threw two wild pitches. Coupled with an error, this cost the locals three runs.

Y^h! ) CHICAGO. April 24.—(^—To day is Howard Ehmke's 36th birthday and he probably will receive a lot of nice greetings— but it is not likely the Philadel phia Athletics pitcher will re- ; ceive any from the Chicago Cubs. The assorted members of the National League champions who struck out often enough to total 13 in the first game of the 1929 World Series will not forget Emhke. nor will they remember him on his birthday.

Jr. The long-awaited invasion by southern clubs of the northern divi sion of the Texas league was in full sway today, with the spotlight playing on the inaugural between the league leading Beaumont Ex porters and the Fort Worth Cats at Pantherville. Second in interest was the visit of the Houston Buffs, oc cupants of second place, to the Sports orchard at Shreveport. Although three games do not a season make, the series at Fort Worth and Shreveport might well prow the turning point in the cur rent chase. If the Exporters and Buffs get away to a good start on their first long road trip they promise to be hard to stop. Two of the northern outfits drew what appeared to be soft spots at the outset of the present invasion. The Dallas Steers were bracketed with San Antonio for three days, and Wichita Falls had every reason to anticipate easy' pickings at the expense of the Waco Cubs, shot to pieces by the Beaumont artillery. If ewr a club caught a country licking, the Cubs were the victims the last three days. As a parting shot, the Exporters hung a 17 to 4 defeat on Del Pratt's pupils yes terday'. In three days of target practice at Katy park the shippers hung up a record of 45 runs, a mark that probbaly will stand for the season. Houston moved into second place with its third straight over the docile San Antonio Indians, 10 to 2. While lefty Reinhardt kept eight blows scattered to win his second straight, every man in the Buff line-up contributed to the onslaught on Estill and Carson. A losing streak that had reach ed four straight was stemmed when the Spudders waged a spectacular uphill drive to nose out Dallas, 7 to 6. in their closer. The victory enabled Wichita to climb Into a tie with Shreveport for the third rung as the Sports dropped their final at Fort Worth, 7 to 1. Rifles vs. Boxers MISSION. April 24.—The Mission 30-30* will invade San Benito next Sunday for a game with the “Box Makers”. Rankin, star hurler for the Rifles, will probably hook up in a hurling duel with Martlnes, submarine art ist. The Rifles are in a position to run their string of wins up to seven. * PHILS. ROBINS SLUG HEAVILY Philadelphia Win* 16-15; 38 Hits Made During Afternoon By HUGH S. FULLERTON. Jr. Associated Press Sports Writer Between them. Brooklyn and Philadelphia have abcut the great est array of sheer slugging talent any pair of teams In the two major leagues can produce, but they haven't displayed It to very good advantage through the first games Their blows were rather Ineffective until they got together yesterday, and then there were more than plenty. It all started when Fresco Thompson, Phlliie leadoff man. j stepped up to the plate in the first inning and drove the ball into the stands for a home run. It didn't end until the ninth inning when Spotts, third Phillie catcher to ap pear, took advantage of an error by Flowers to romp home from third with the run that gave Phil adelphia a 16 to 15 victory. In be tween there came 38 hits. 21 of them going to the Phillies, a parade of pitchers and pinch hitters ar.d one big scoring rally after another Starting with Jim Faulkner and ending with Bill Clark, the Robins used six hurlers while the Phillies called on four. In all 35 players took part in the game Southern and Thevenow of Philadelphia and Frederick and Flowers of Brooklyn took the leading slugging roles yielding onlv to Chuck Klein's third homer of the season. The Brooklyn-Philadelphia was the onlv major league game in the east which survived the wintry weather. One western contest in each leamie reached Its end while Pittsburgh tried to hold Its home opening against Cincinnati, but gave it up in the third inning when a snowstorm swent over the filed The Chicago Cubs, champions of the National league last season, go* back above the .500 mark bv beat ing out the St, Louis Cardinals. 6 to 5. in the other National league game. The Cubs got five runs In the third inning only to have the Cards get them all back again be fore the ninth. Charley Grimm came through in the ninth with his third hit of the game to bring Hack Wil son home from third with the wln inng run. Charlev Root, winning his first game of the year in three starts, outclassed a trio of Cardinal pitchers. The St. Louis Browns were the only American leaguers to increase their average, defeating Detroit for the second time in succession 5 to 1. RED BIRDS TO MEET EAGLES (Special to The Herald.)

Mrs. Pharr Seen Winner Of ********* Texas Women’s Golf Tourney By GAYLE TALBOT, Jr. Associated Press Sports Writer DALLAS, April 24—(A*)——Some 150 fair linksters will be In Texarkana the week of April 28 ostensibly for the purpose of settling the Texas women’s golf championship. What they actually will do is determine Just how much better Mrs. P. E. Pharr is than the remainder of the field. The matronly Texarkana shooter literally swamped the field in last year’s tournament at the Lakewood country club here, and she should display at least as great a superiority in the approaching meet over her home course Although well over the 40-year mark. Mrs. Pharr holds the cham pionship of two states. Arkansas and Texas. She Is stockily built and broad of shoulder and deadly in earnest about her golf. We fol lowed her in her final two match es last year and did not see her smile. She is, friends say. a gracious and lovable woman off the links; but she does not regard a golf tournament a social affair. She plays with a grim intentness, ap parently unmindful of her oppo nent and the gallery. But, how she does play that game! Some one said after the 1929 tournament that it was monotonous to watch the Texarkana star play. Where was the kick, asked this gallerite. in watching a person hole after hole drive straight down the middle, pitch onto the green and then take two putts? That is her came. She has heard there is a “rough” that borders the fairway, but lets it go at that. In her two last matches last year, at least, she was not once off the straight and narrow. Her drives average perhaps 200 yards and she is un- j cannily accurate with her Irons. Close followers of the feminine division say there is only one wo man in the state capable of mafcch .ng Mrs. Pharr’s game and she. un fortunately, has grown tired of tournament play. Mrs. Jack Lap ham of San Antonio won the title ;o manv times and with such ease that she did not attend last year's meet, going east with Mr. Lapham Instead. It is not known whether she will compete in the approach mg tourney at Texarkana, but if she does the gallery can be assured o! some fireworks. Mrs. Lapham, like Mrs. Pharr, approached middle-age before she reached the peak of her game. She likewise is a powerful woman, cap able of driving tremendous distan- i ces. In recent years she has played almost exclusively with the better masculine talent at the San An tonio country club, accepting no handicap. The club professional, Tom Lally. frequently Is her op ponent. With hundreds of the state’s young women taking up the game seriously In recent years, it is strange that the two outstanding players would be of the senior divi sion. perhaps 10 years older than a majority of their tournament ad versaries. The situation apparently bears out the theory that athletics do not come naturally to the wo man as to the man; that It takes a certain number of years for the feminine muscles to become "ath letic conscious" and supple. CHICAGO GETS TRACK MEET CHICAGO.
