Earnshaw Loses Three-Hit
Game to Browns
2 to 1
By HUGH S. FULLERTON. Jr.,
Associated Press Sports Writer
Jonathan Thompson Zachary of
the New York Yankees is not the
oldest pitcher in the American
league, in spite of his nickname,
“Old Tom.” Nor_is he by any means
the youngest. Tom became 33 years
old yesterday, and he celebrated his
birthday in harness showing the
youngsters & few things.
Last year Zachary led the Amer
ican league pitchers by winning 12
games without a defeat. He also had
the best earned run batting, giving
but 33 in 120 innings. Up to yes
terday, Tom had not done so well
during the chilly spring days, but
with the advent of summer wea
ther he scored his first victory,
beating the Cleveland Indians, 8 ta
7.
Zach Gets Aid
Zachary received some aid from
another Yankee ancient. Babe Ruth,
,and from Roy Sherid. who is more
than ten years younger. Ruth con
'tTibuted largely to the five run
rally which decided the game by
iTteting his fourth home run of the
j Ison tilth two on base. Sherid
". !me to Zachary's rescue when he
weakened in the late innings.
Except in three National league
games yesterday, the pitchers had
the better of the major league bat
ters. Bennie Frey of Cincinnati and
George Earnshaw of the Philadel
phia Athletics turned in the best
performances, each allowing only
three hits. Frey won his game, but
Earnshaw lost.
Two of the three hits off Earn
shaw were made by the opposing
pitcher .Walter Stewart of the St.
Louis Browns, who pitched a six
hit game. The third was a homer
by Sammy Hale with one man on
base which gave the Browns a 2
to 1 decision. Frey won is third
straight game and his second 1 to
0 contest by stopping the Boston
Braves.
Tigers Beat Senators
Earl Whitehill of Dertoit had
the better of three Washington
pitchers, holding the senators to
six hits for a 3 to 1 triumph. The
Tigers got eight blows. Horace
Lisenbee allowed the Chicago White
Sox a dozen hits, but kept them
harmlessly scattered while young
Tom Oliver led the Boston Red
Sox to a 6 to i victory. Oliver,
who has hit safely in 16 consecutive
games, got four blows in five times
at bat.
The St. Louis Cardinals were in
the front bank of the heavy hitters
yesterday as they hammered five
Philadelphia pitchers for a 16 to 11
victory.
Not far behind came the Pitts
burgh Pirates and New York Giants,
dividing 31 hits in Pittsburgh's 16
to 8 victory.
The Chicago Cubs continued the
assaults on Brooklyn pitching by
hitting steadily to gain a 9 to 5
victory after Brooklyn had opened
the game with a home run drive
that brought four tallies in the
first inning.

Beaumont's Shippers returned
home in time to administer a 9 to 1
drubbing to the Fort Worth Cats,
led in the onslaught by Billy Mul

slants, the San Antonio Indians

Wichita Falls Oilers, 4 to 0. It was

ninth inning.
“I resigned because I do
not approve of any such action on
the part of the fans and was In
doubt as to whether it could be
curbed in the future,” Johnson said
in resigning.

until after it was over. I had asked
for police protection before the
game, but only one officer was
present and he could not handle
the Irate fans.

MISSION CLUB ROUNDS OUT
SIX-TEAM VALLEY LEAGUE
HARLINGEN, May 8.—The Rio,
Grande Valley league was rounded!
into a six-club organization here j
last night with the admission of a
Mission club headed by W. C. Can
non.
The league is now ready to open
its 18-week schedule May 18, with
Brownsville, San Benito, Harlingen,
La Feria, Donna and Mission com
posing the circuit. Opening day will
find Brownsville at Donna. La Feria
at San Benito and Mission at Har
lingen. The following Sunday the
schedule will reverse with Donna at I
Brownsville, San Benito at La Feria
and Harlingen at Mission.
President O. N. Boston was ill
and was not able to conduct the
meeting. The session was presided
over by Ben Epstein. The Mission
Rifles, represented by Ernesto Con
treras, arrived late and made ap
plication for the sixth berth, but
the other Mission team had already
been admitted, filling out the cir
cuit.
Umpires
The question of umpires was gone
over thoroughly. Umpires are to
make application to President Bos
ton at Harlingen. He will investigate
applications and name six compe
tent officials. The umpires, two to
each game, will be paid $5 each by
the home club. Managers were
urged to recommend competent
umpires to President Boston. The
concensus was that the ball-and
strike umpire should work behind
the plate.
The $50 good-will check from each
club must be in the hands of the
president before the opening game
can be played.
Hal Eustace, statistician, was au
thorized to have official contracts
printed and forward same to
managers. The managers are to re
turn their rosters to Eustaoe in
care of The Brownsville Herald by
May 15. Each club will be allowed
to sign 16 men including the man
ager. The manager may, or may not
play.
The official starting time of the
games was set at 3 p. m. It was de
cided that if it is raining in a home
town at 12 noon, the manager of
the club should notify the visiting
club by telephone.
Opening Days
Epstein recommended that the
various teams hold appropriate
opening days. He urged that the
games be advertised and that bands
be obtained if possible.
Official league scorers were named
as follows.
Brownsville—Hall Eustace.
8an Benito—Geo. Sanders.
Harlingen—Bernard Lebowitz.
La Feria—Alva Branch.

Long Hauls
A “Caterpillar” tractor-type
tractor—due to its traction
—will haul gigantic loads
steadily all day long in all
kinds of weather and tough
going. This often means the
successful and profitable
completion of difficult haul
ing jobs undertaken by con
tractors. Sometimes “Cater
pillars” are the only power
that can handle the job at
all when conditions are bad.
“Caterpillar” Tractors keep
other equipment busy and
have a place in the picture
wherever dirt must be
moved at a profit.
