The setting for brilliant and, pos
sibly, record-breaking achievments
by two of America's foremost ath
letes, Barney Berlinger of Pennsyl
vania and Leo Lermond cf the
Boston 9. A , shared the spotlight
with team ambitious today in the
opening program of the Pennsyl
vania relay carnival.
Berlinger. aU-rofmd star, with no
particular opposition in eight un
less from Bob Todd of Indiana,
figured to take a crack at his own
carnival record of 7298 points in
the decathlon, if not the American
record of 7784 68 points, set by Ken
Doherty of Detroit.
Lermond, Just back from an
Australian tour, had his eye on
Tommy Conneff’s 35-vear-old world
record of 3 minutes. 2 4-5 seconds
for the three quarter mile run.

Experts Crossed Up When

Associated Press Sports Writer
Those students of the national
pastime who predicted the Beau

they came in contact with the so
called “tough" clubs of the north

a jolt yesterday as Manager Del

Fort Worth Panthers. 4 to 1. in

As a result the Shippers today
found themselves two full games

appear to be a different article.
There was nothing to indicate the
club was a morning glory in the
way it went about ita work yester
day. While Muleahoe Vaughn kept
nine Cat hits well scattered to reg

their eight blows off the veteran
Bill Clarkson. They sewed it up
with a two run splurge in the

Buffs Beaten
Houston, the second southern
; threat, fared not so well in its
northern premiere, losing to Shrev
eport. 7 to 4. and dropping back a
notch. The Buffs scored all their
runs off Senor Oscar Estrada in
the first frame before Bill Morrell
could get warmed up. After Mor

Not only are better young ball

for youngsters never were greater
than today.
“They say good young pitchers
aren't coming up to the big leagues

IF ANYONE is of the opinion

baseball club this season, they had
