Htifell and Adkins Are To
Meet For Tourney
Crown Sunday
Alter a determined battle to be
come the only person ever to repeat
lu winning the Rex Batch golf cup.
D. K. Clint was eleminated in the
semi-finals Thursday alter noon by
Fred Adkins.
It was a spectacular battle be
tween them, and for a time it seem
ed that Clint, who won the cup 17
years ago, might come through.
After a ragged first nine, where his
gift strokes dief not help him. Clint
settled down to shoot even par on
the last nine.
But Adkins was not to be denied.
He spotted Clint one stroke on the
back nine, on No. 15, but started it
two up, and held onto his lead, win
Clint with a handicap of 8 shot
an even 80
Adkins with a 3 handicap shot 76.
ClirU lost the match on the first
nine, requiring 44 strokes to cover
It. He received four of his five gifts
on the first nine, and they did him
practically no good.
The victory for Adkins Thursday
puts him into the finals against A.
M Hassell
Adkins has she* steady and at
times spectacular golf to advance
to the finals through a field of golf*
ers which included Gaston Peek, a
par shooter; J. I. George, a 3-handi
cap player; Holman Harrison with
a handicap of 8. and Clint.
Hassell has a handicap of 16.
He has shot from 92 to 99 in the
tournament, but will probably have
to shoot better golf than that to
win from Adkins. The latter will
spot Hassell 13 strokes. Hassell re

Irked, Irritated at Ruth Deal
NEW YORK, May 10.—<AV-De
tails of the deal between the Na
tional and American Leagues
whereby the 'Boston Braves acquir
ed Babe Ruth are beginning to leak
out, and here and there lurks con
siderable hard feelings, particularly
in Brooklyn.
It seems that when the matter
of placing Ruth for 1935 became a
question of national, almost Inter
national importance, the club
owners got together and talked the
situation over.
The Yankees didn't want Ruth
any longer, but they had to have a
Bucky Walters Turns In
Excellent Work For
• Phillies
(By The Associated Press)
One of the newly risen stars of
the National League pitching corps
has taken his first fall, but another
moved right up to take his place.
When Darrell (Cy) Blanton, Pitts
burgh* sensational young right*
hander, met his first defeat of the
season at the hands of the Giants
and Carl Hubbell by a 3-1 count
Thursday he became for the time
being just another good pitcher.
His place m the sun was given
over to William (Bucky) Walters,
the Phillies’ home-town boy who was
converted from a third baseman into
a pitcher and celebrated by hurling
a four-hit, 2 to 1 triumph over the
world champion Cardinals.
Walters made his second start
Thursday, allowed the Cards only
three singles and a double and
handed out five walks. The only
Cardinal run was unearned, com
ing on George Watkins’ fumble om
Virgil Davis' two-bagger.
Blanton Misses Platter
Blanton's wildness was the prin
cipal cause of his own downfall as
he rang up six strike-outs for a sea
sons total of 36. But two of his
five passes led to the first run and
an error and two blows brought the
other pair.
Brooklyn remained in second place
two games behind the Giants with
a 5-4 ‘-gift” victory over the Reds.
Two run were forced in by walks
and two more scored on an error in
the third inning which produced
all five runs. With Tex Carleton
pitching a neat five-hit game, the
third-place Cubs slammed out a 5
to 1 victory over the Braves in a
game marked by Rabbit Mar an -

right hand pitcher. No one in the
American League would sell or
trade them the kind of hurler they
wanted. Boston, and the National
League, wanted Ruth, and there
were pitchers in the league that
clubs wouldn’t sell or trade to
each other, but didn't mind send
ing to the Yankees, in the Amer
ican League, where * the pitcher
wouldn’t be bobbing up to annoy
them by winning ball games away
from them.
Details of the Deal
So the Yankees agreed to pay
$15,000 for a National League
pitcher, and the National League
club owners prepared a list from
which the Yankees could choose.
In return for this, the Yanks gave
Ruth his unconditional release
and along went the Babe to Bo6
The list turned over to Joe Mc
Carthy. manager of the Yankees,
contained the name of big Pat
Malone, one of Joe's favorites when
he -was piloting the Chicago Cubs
to a pennant in 1929.
"There’s my man.” he said.
Col. Jake Ruppert cheerfully
mailed Sam Bread on. of the Card
inals. a check for $15,000. The Na
tional League club-owners, still
keeping their managers in the dark
about the whole business waived
as they had promised on Malone.
And that's how the Yankees got
the right-hander they needed, a
pitcher with a value far above
$15,000, and a pitcher who never
could have been waived out of the
National League under any other
I circumstances.
The moans in Brooklyn, when
some of this leaked out, ruffled
the waters of the famed Go wan us
canal. All winter long Casey Sten
gel had been looking for just such
a right-hander as Malone to bols
ter his staff and make a pennant
contender out of a nominally fifth
place club.
Turn Casey's Damper Down
Casey stormed into the front
office of the Dodgers, yelling
"Where's the blankety-blank so
and so who waived on Malone?”
The powers that be quietly told
him that this was a matter that
didn't concern him at all, and
would he Just mind his own busi
ness and not ask any questions?
In Pittsburgh where, with tne
phenomenal success of young ®y
Blanton, the acquisition of Jim
Weaver and Guy Bush from the
Cubs, the addition of a right
hander of Malones ability might
mean a pennant, the wails prob
ably were just as loud and with
the same results.
Big Pat is doing all right with
the Yanks. He lost one start, but
in relief roles he has done yeoman
service. McCarthy always could
handle the big temperamental fel
low. It looks as though he’s going
to continue to do so successfully.
And if the Yanks do finally win
the American League pennant, why
it's the old Babe again who swung

The Hubcity visitors held the

back to tally a pair of markers to
win 9-8. The tilt was abbreviated
