THE VALLEY "B” champion
ship has settled down to the game
between Mercedes and Pharr-San
Juan-Alamo, and that game will

the schedule:
Team W L. T. Pet.
Mercedes . 5 0 2 857

three and tied two. running up
100 points to 6 for the opposition.
Against the same clubs. Pharr has
won four and tied one, scoring 113
points to 6 for opponents. These
comparative scores follow:

Mercedes 21. Edinburg 0
Pharr 39, Edinburg 6.
Mercedes 0, Donna 0.
Mercedes 0, La Feria 0.
Pharr 9, La Fma 0.
It takes no wizard to see that j
this should be one of the best
matched championship games ever
played In the Rio Grande Valley
There Is little or nothing to
choose between the clubs on com- 1
parative performances.

NOW .AS TO the San Bcmto
Douna game This should be al- i
most as much of a dog fight as
the Tiger-Bear tussle. Against
three common opponents, Mercedes
Weslaco and La FVr:a. 8sn Benito
has won two and lost one while
scoring 44 points to 25 for op- I
ponents. Against the same clubs,
Donna has won two and tied one
scoring 14 points to none for op- j
position. The bu item staring San
Benito In the face is the fact that I
she was delcated 25-0 by Mercedes
while Donna held the Tigers to a
scoreless tie. But on the other ■
hand. Donna barely beat La Feria
7-0 while San Benito trounced the

Another Typical Wade Line at Duke
Making Things Tough for Opponents
Six feet two inches of lighting man from the wilds of North Carolina

Wade at Duke.
Wallace Wade, outstanding Duke
university coach whose lines rank
annually with the best in the nation,
is the younger brother of Davis
Wade, well known San Benltan in
the firm of Wade & Newton.
, If anybody
should be able to
produce good lines
It should be Wade,
for he was an All
American tackle
at Brown univer

Wallace got his start in high
school, then played with Morgan
Park Academy. Chicago, and from
there went to Brown where he
made All-American.
The patriotic fever got him. In
1917 he returned to Trenton and
organized a company and was made
captain. W’allace was a great suc
cess at handling and training men
during the war and was not allowed
to go across for this reason.
After the war he coached a prep
school in middle Tennessee later go

is at Duke. His ‘Bama club, featur

Relieves Women’s Pains
Here is an example of how Cardul
has helped thousands of women:
"I was very thin and pale,”
writes lira. F. H. Scott, of Roa
noke, Va. “I suffered from weak
ness and a severe pain in my back.
This pain unnerved me, and I did not
feel like doing my work. I did not
care to go places, and felt worn, tired,
dav after day.
“My mother had taken Cardul. and
on seeing my condition she advised
me to try it. I have never regretted
doing so. I took three bottles and it
built me up I gained in weight, my
color wag better and the pain left my
hack. I am stronger than I bad
been in some time."

Not that the three subjects are
related to one another, but it hap
pens the colonel Is president of the
United States Brewers association,
owns the world champion New York
Yankee baseball club, and has to
get the famous sluggers signature
on a new contract.
Ruppert is at French Lick for his
annual 21-day rest. He thinks the
Yankees have a great chance to win
tie American league pennant In
1933 and does not anticipate any
trouble in signing the highest salar
ied ball player in history.
“Babes all right; he will sign at
the right time,’’ Rupiiert said.
Return of real beer interests the
colonel more than anything* else
right now. He believes the Volstead
Act will be modified during the
short term of congress to permit
manufacture of the drink.
“If that is done, my own brewery
will be ready to produce the rt.il
stuff on a minute's notice.” col.
Ruppert said. “It will mean eat
activity in the other 500 breweries
in the United States and the open
ing of others.
“I believe the brewers, if permit
ted to manufacture real beer will
within one year have under way a
$200,000,000 building program.”

Rossiter is an end who comes

pass, punt and run. And you can't
ask for much more than that from
