McALLEN. June 9 — Hailey Jack
son’s Macks continue at the top
of the Rio Grande Valley league by
virtue of their 3-2 victory over Rio
Honde here In a game which was
curtailed by rain. The teams were
to have plajed a double-header.
The all around ability of big Ed
Aachtik stood out although he
was credited with the loss of the
game. He clouted out a homer and
a double in three trips to the
platter, in addition to holding the
Mackian sluggers well in hand.
Guerra, a necomer on the Mc
Allen nine, showed nicely getting
two hits In as many tries at the
plate. He never dobbied afield.

SAN BENITO, June 9.—With Ox
Darby flashing good form after a
poor start, Lew Williams' hustling
Saint nine knocked the Harlingen
nine from th league lead here Sun
day. defeating them 5-3.
A large crowd was on hand to
view the crucial game which was
run off in highly efficient style.
Three umpires kept the game roll
in? along at a brisk pace and there
was no wrangling.
McCauley, big saint left fielder,
l>cunded thi horsemde out of the
lot in the eighth inning to take
the league lead m this department.
Tne clouting of Blakeney, Cunnmg
haU and Wallace stood out in the
"Ox” hurled good ball for the
Saints after the first inning when
he was nicked for two runs. Nick
Yoder twirlec. almost equally as
well however, for the Cardinals.
Pinch batting in the ninth in
ning, Manager Topper Rigney of j
tne Harlingen nine, crashed chrougn
wah a hit which meant Harlingen's
tfcira run of the day.
This game was the renewal of
the ancient Valley classics between
San Benito and Harlingen. Many
of the old timers who used to take
part in these frays were in the
stands. They saw a game worthy of
the ancient feuds.

OLD TIMERS AND YOUTHS
VIE FOR MAJOR RECORDS
BY HUGH S. FULLERTON, JR.
Associated Press Sports Writer
A perusal of the current major
league records seems to indicate that
a player must be either very young
or very old. as baseball ages go. to
get a full share of the season’s glory.
Picking a few names from the re
cords of those who have done some
thing worth while in pitching and
hitting, we find such ancients as
Harry Seibold. Adalfo Luque, * Sad
Sam” Jones, Ted Lyons, Harry He»
mann and Harry’ Rice, and the
youngsters, Mel Harder, Bob Os
born. Earl Collard, Roy Mahaffey,
Wally Berger, Joe Stripp, Smead
Jolley and Tom Oliver.
Of these, Luque and Heilmann are
basking in the brightest rays of the
limelight today. The veteran Cuban

PELS 19 TO 9
Point Isabel Hurlers Have
Bad Day Before Local
Twenty-eight runs clattered ac
ross the plate and 24 base hits
rang out in a baseball farce put
on here Sunday by the Point Isabel
Pelicans and the Brownsville Broncs.
A total of 15 Pelicans attempted to
stem the tide, but the count was
19-9 against them at the end of the
two and a half hour encounter.
Three Point Isabel hurlers were
hammered hard In the first six in
nings. At the end of that period
the score was 19-2 against the Pels.
Manager George Desha decided to
case up a bit and had Ball relieve
Rocha in the box. Up until that
time, Rocha had allowed but three
hits. Ball was hard hit and Point
Isabel scored five runs in the seven
th and two in the ninth.
Salinas r* the Broncs slammed
out a home run in the fifth inning
shortly alter Wiggins had relieved
Von Allmen in the box for Point
Isabel. The hitting of Rocha, Wood
and Cantu stood out.
In case Point Isabel is admitted to
the Rio Grande Valley league, this
game will be counted as official.
The Broncs had an off day in the

victories. He gave ample proof yes
terday that he haa earned this post
by turning back the Cubs with four
hits while Brooklyn scored a 6 to 0
victory and increased its margin
of leadership to three full games.
Heilmann. for whom the American
league could find no use last season
when Detroit decided to let him go
after 14 successive seasons, is close
to the top of the batters in the
National league. In two games
against the Phillies yesterday he
improved his latest official average
of .402 by several points, hitting five
hits in nine times at bat and giving
Cincinnati a 5 to 4 victory in the
first contest with a home run. Heil
mann could not offset the Philadel
phia slugging in the second game,
and the Phillies won out, 9 to 2.
Seibold also did well after a couple
of bad games. He pitched his tenth
complete game in a dozen starts to
beat Pittsburgh, 10 to 6. Seibold had
one bad inning, the seventh, when
the Pirates scored all their runs on
six of their seven hits, but the
Braves had tallied eight times in
the second. The youthful Berger
contributed his 17th home run of
i the season to this rally.
Waite Hoyt, another veteran, who
seemed to be about through with the
New York Yankees, made his first
start for Detroit and won out 1 to
0 in a six-inning game. Hoyt yield
ed four hits, while his opponent, Ed
Morris, held the Tigers to two, but
lo6t out through an error in the first
Ted Lyons, one of the season's
consistent winners, gave the Phila
delphia Athletics four extra base
hits in one inning This was just
enough to give the world’s champ
ions a 6 to 5 victory over Chicago,
producing four runs. Young Wes
Ferrel, of Cleveland finally passed
Lyons in the number of games won
by holding Washington in check
and finally driving in a run in the
ninth inning to win his own game,
3 to 2.
Ferrell's victory improved Cleve
land’s standing considerably as the
St. Louis Browns subdued the threat
of the New York Yankees with a
5 to 4 triumph. The Browns ham
mered George Pipgras from the
mound in the eighth inning to score
all their runs.
The New York Giants provided the
leading exception to the youth and
age rule as they defeated the St.
