won Its fifth victory of the series
Monday in a bitterly contested
gjme which was marred by the most
senpus squabble which has taken place
so far. In the last of the seventh, with
the bases foil and two down. Slagle,
the new twirler, -was at bat and drew
three balls and two strikes the next
ball pitched meant a breaking of the
tie and the same for the home team or
tjiree out.
Brashear. who had batted for Ritchie,
sent Andrada into the came to ran for
him and went down to the third base
oaciung box to try to send "Spots"
SlacMurdo home with the winning run.
Hi Glj nn stood In position watchin?
Bliss for the signal when MacMurdo
started home. McGlynn threw the ball
v, me and Bliss t. cged MacMurdo, who
was railed out by Kane. Then the
trouble started. Brashear claims that
Mi Glvnn threw the ball home while
standing in the pitcher's box and that,
inasmuch as the throw conn ted for a
ball, MacMurdo was forced in with a
ran. Kane contends, as does McClos
key, that McGlynn stepped out of his
box and threw the ball to catch the
runner, which he did, and thereby re
tired the side and forced Slagle to
appear first at bat in the next Innins.
It's Almost a Riot.
Brashear protested the same and the
grandstand and bleachers went wild to
such an extent that the police were
forced to put one man off for trying to
s'art trouble with McCloskey and when
lare left the grounds he was stoned
bf a number of boys who were egged
on by older men.
"resident Brown, of Tucson ad
dressed a letter to president Hughes,
of the league, last evening, saying he
nnuld nut allow Kane on these grounds
again and that he would not consent
to ha e his team play in any game um

Both teams played star ball through
out and the battle between Slagle and
McGlynn was about a draw; both were
touched up In the first Inning when
each team made two runs. From then
on It was a game of as tight, fast ball
as could be found anywhere. Duddy
made his usual home run with the
longest drire of the season over center

citement by knocking out one of the

JOE W0LTER WINNER IN
PHOENIX MOTORBIKE RACE
Phoenix. Ariz, June 1. Consistent
riding and the staying powers of their
machines won for Joe Wolter and Har
ry Crandall the 2.00 mile motorcycle
race held at the Arizona fair grounds.
Wolter. a factory rider, took first place
In 3:07:27 1-5. Crandall. a local ama
teur, was only 55 seconds behind. Both
were mounted on Harley-Davidsons.
Martin Graves, professional, riding an
eight valve Indian, finished in third
place. Lorenzo Boido, of Phoenix, was
fourth on a factory Indian and Frank
Montgomery fifth on a stock Excelsior
No other riders finished.
Ten riders started. Graves held the
lead for 25 miles, when he wen to the
pits for a minor adjustment When he
went back to thp trapV h -nra. ai-rtH
but he was soon in second place, Cran
dall having gone to the pits for a sho-t

went back to the pit for gasoline and
oil and from that time on to the end
he held third position.

John Nntt, the most dependable batter
on Herb Hester's payroll. Nor is it
Byrd Lynn, who is far superior to the
other Rio Grande association back
stops who have appeared here and is
also a batter of parts. It is no less a
person than "Smoky Joe Smiley." who
is to be given the honor' of being re
ferred to officially hereafter by his
own proper name of Jose SonoquC But
the fans will never call him anything
but Smiley.
When Hester went out on somebody's
vacant lot and told the coffee colored,
string-shaped Smiley to lob a few over
the plate for him, he was desperate.
"Red Toner and Ed McCreery were
not going well and Herb Hall couldn't
be worked every day. Hester needed
another pitcher and needed him badly.
At that time Smileys arm was sore,
for he had been doing quite a lot of
practicing in the hope that there might
be a place for him in some Rio Grande
lineup. It was still sore Saturday,
when he put on a white Solon uniform.
He began to warm up before the game
started and the Dukes, also some of
the Solons. couldn't restrain their
mirth. For when Smiley delivers the
ball he looks like he is going to fall to
pieces. And it is a wonder how he
ever gets them over the plate, for when
the ball leaves his hand it seems to be
traveling in almost any direction. But

the umpire that It was a strike in

more on his sticking ability than on

Phoenix would like to adopt Reed.
On two occasions last week he walked
out-on the field and told his players to
quit fighting the umpire and play ball.
It cannot be denied that there is
some complaint about the umpiring of

VTflLLIAM A. H0ERELL, who won
the singles championship ia the
Border States tennis tournament, is
an automobile agent at Phoenix.
He was rnnnercp in the singles in
1913 and won the title in 1914 and
1915. With Ainsworth, he won the
donbles championship in 1913 and
1914, losing out this year. He is
Arizona singles champion, and, with
Ainsworth, donbles champion. He is
said to have the best American
twist service in the southwest and is
strictly a net player. He is weak
backhand on high bounds and can't
smash while moving back. This
weakness was apparent in Sunday's
match with Ferguson,
M0RMAN A. FERGUSON is assist
ant to the southwestern district
manager of the American Smelting
and Refining company, of this city.
He won the Bolder States singles
championship in 1913 and was runner-up
to Horrell last and this year.
Twice he has been runner-up in the
doubles and this year, with Christie,
he won the championship in that
class. He lobs wonderfully and uses
his head all the time. The "Border
States Tennis" declares that -"he is
the best fellow in the land bnt he
drives a Ford."
"DORDER STATES TENNIS," the
official organ of the Border
States Tennis association, has just
issned its spring number and devotes
considerable space to El Paso and
the Border States tournament. It
is a newsy publication and is worthy
of the support of the tennis players
of the southwest. It contains a
number of joshes on local tennis
stars and much valuable tennis information.
""THERE is some satisfaction in the
ne7s that Ralph SePalma won
the Indianapolis speedway auto race
for, despite the war, there were sev
eral noted foreign drivers in the
race.
"THAT motorcycle race at Salt Lake
City on Sunday must have been
a peach. The doctors will reap a
harvest taking care of the injured
riders. Incidentally, mention should
be made of the pluck shown by the
riders, two of whom were knocked
unconscious through falls and yet
got back into the race while another
finished with a broken wrist. But
motorcycle races over 203 miles of
country roads, entirely unpoliced,
should be prohibited. They are dan
gerous, not only to the riders but
to the residents along the road.
YOU can't always believe what
you are told. Herb Hester and
George Reed led Jim Brown to be
lieve that the EI Paso ball team
was a weak aggregation. Jim says
that it was costly information to
find out that the Mackmen are about
the best in the league. Incidentally,
Brown is showing a lot of baseball
sense in the way he is handling his
team.. As soon as a weak spot
appears, Jim gets busy and lands a
new player. And his team is not the
most epensive in the league by a
long shot.
""THE Commercial league has sent
in a vote of thanks to The
Herald for the space and "impartial
comment" upon their Sunday games
at Washington park. It is rather
unusual for a newspaper to receive
thanks from a baseball league and,
in turn, we wish to thank the officers
of the league for their courtesy.
